Israel Imposes New, Harsh Economic Measures
The government has
imposed harsh new econo-
mic measures aimed at ab-
sorbing some $900 million
from the public sector as a
means of curbing inflation.
But the double-barreled ap-
proach that went into effect a
one-time property tax and cuta in
subsidies for fuel and certain
basic commodities that sent
prices soaring has come under
fire from some of the country's
leading economists.
The cut-back on subsidies took
effect immediately to avoid
hoarding for the High Holidays
which began Wednesday night.
The tax, which won final ap-
proval by the Cabinet, will apply
to private cars, boats, apart-
ments where the owner is not the
resident, business premises and
securities. Tax collection
methods will be tightened and
loopholes closed, according to
Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai.
economists, however, the
measures will not achieve their
objectives unless matched by the
$1 billion slash in government
spending vowed by the Cabinet
last week but apparently not
likely to materialize in this fiscal
Moreover, the cuta in price
supports have the immediate
effect of further fueling inflation.
And they are selective. Many
basics still benefit from full
subsidies, making it more dif-
ficult for the government to meet
its $1 billion savings target.
The price of fuel went up by 30
percent overnight. The prices of
other government controlled
products rose by 18-56 percent.
As a result, economic experts
say, inflation now running at an
annual rate of over 400 percent is
likely to exceed 1,000 percent.
Peace Road 'Long'
Reagan Repeats 'Initiative' At UN
(JTA) Declaring that the
road to peace in the Middle
East is "long and hard,"
President Reagan told the
General Assembly Monday
he is as committed to his
September 1, 1982 peace
initiative as he was on the
day he issued it.
"That initiative remains a real-
istic and workable approach, and
I am committed to it as firmly as
on the day I announced it," the
President declared. He said that
the foundation of this plan
remains Security Council Resolu-
tion 242.
Stressing the importance of
negotiations, Reagan, whose
speech lasted 25 minutes and who
referred to the Middle East only
briefly, said, "The lesson of expe-
rience is that negotiations work.
The peace treaty between Israel
and Egypt brought about the
peaceful return of the Sinai,
clearly showing that the nego-
tiating process brings results
when the parties commit them-
selves to it.
"THE TIME is bound to come
when the same wisdom and
courage will be applied, with
success, to reach peace between
Israel and all of its Arab neigh-
bors, in a manner that assures
security for all in the region, the
recognition of Israel, and a solu-
tion to the Palestinian problem,"
he said.
The president added that the
United States has been involved
in peace diplomacy for the decade
that the Middle East conflict has
been in existence. "We consider
ourselves a full partner in the
quest for peace. The record of the
11 years since the October War
(Yom Kippur War) shows that
much can be achieved through
negotiation," he said.
Turning to the situation in
Lebanon, Reagan said that "the
tragedy" has not ended, recalling
that only last week "a despicable
i act of barbarism by terrorists"
9 against the U.S. Embassy in
i Beirut took place. The President
" noted that in 1983 the United
States helped Israel and Lebanon
reach an agreement that could
have led to the full withdrawal of
Israeli forces "in the context of
i the withdrawal of all foreign
5 forces" from Lebanon.
BUT, the President pointed
out, the agreement was blocked,
and "the long agony of the
Lebanese continues. Thousands
of people are still kept from their
homes by continued violence, and
are refugees in their own
country." The President called on
- all who are concerned with the
well being of Lebanon "to help
% end this nightmare."
2 The President's address
opened the 39th session of the
General Assembly's general
debate. His speech, which was
mainly devoted to relations
between the United States and
the Soviet Union, was warmly
received. Israel was represented
by Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and by members of the
Israel UN Mission. Shamir said
in answer to a reporter's question
that he would not give any
assessment of Reagan's remarks
on the Mideast until he has a
chance to study the text.
UN's Opening
as it has in past years.
According to diplomats, Iran,
Libya and Syria have been
engaged in intensified efforts to
deny Israel its credentials when
the Credentials Committee
presents its report for General
Assembly approval. According to
the diplomats, the three extrem-
ist countries have been lobbying
in various capitals, especially
among Moslem countries, to join
in a vote to suspend Israel from
the current session. If Israel's
credentials are denied, it is in
effect suspended from the
General Assembly.
Iran started to push the move to
suspend Israel, it had only eight
supporting votes. Last year the
number of countries joining
Iran's motion rose to 43. Accord-
ing to Ambassador Aryeh Levin,
the acting ambassador of Israel
to the UN, the number of coun-
tries supporting the Iranian
move this year could increase to
But, Levin explained in a brief-
ing for Isreah reporters, the
Iranian move is expected to be
thwarted as it was last year, by a
motion to set aside the Iranian
request until the end of the
General Assembly. The Iranian
plan thereby would be ignored by
the Assembly. The set-aside
motion last year was introduced
by Norway and the motion this
from Page 1
year is also expected to come
from one of the Scandinavian
Meanwhile, the general debate
of the General Assembly opened
Monday with an address by Pre-
sident Reagan. Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir of Israel was
present during Reagan's address.
SHAMIR WAS scheduled to
arrive here Sunday and to remain
in New York for 10 days to two
weeks. He will address the
General Assembly Oct. 3. During
his stay in New York, Shamir is
expected to meet with about 30
foreign ministers from around the
world. These include Secretary of
State George Shultz and the
foreign ministers of Britain,
France and other European natin
as as well as of countries of Africa
and South America.
The new Israeli Ambassador to
the UN, Binyamin Netanyahu,
was expected to arrive in New
York this week. He will soon
present his credentials to
Secretary General Javier Perez
de Cuellar. The Israeli delegation
to the General Assembly will be
strengthened by seven more
members due here from Israel.

Raul Alfonsin, who addressed the
General Assembly Monday, will

At the aame time, the
government is continuing to
support the price of bread by a
subsidy of 134 percent, eggs by
106 percent, milk by 103 percent,
and frozen poultry by 97 percent.
Even so, long queues developed
at supermarkets and gasoline
stations as the public rushed to
stock up on food and fuel before
the midnight price hike deadline.
THE ECONOMIC program is
one of the few areas where the
Labor-Likud unity government is
in substantial agreement on
goals. Premier Shimon Peres told
the Knesset that the gravity of
Israel's economic situation is
without precedent. He defended
the new taxes against opposition
charges that wage earners are
being forced to bear most of the
He stressed that the property
tax is being levied on a variety of
personal assets and cannot be
described as a tax on "the poor."
According to Modai, each asset
will be taxed at a flat rate of two
percent of its value. The value of
a car, he explained, would be
determined by such factors as
size, age and market price.
But if the government is
prepared to tighten the public's
belt, it is having difficulty with
its own. A major stumbling block
at the moment is the Education
Ministry's budget. Modai and
Education Minister Yitzhak
Navon agreed to bring their
differences before a special
ministerial committee, headed by
Peres, which would have the final
THE MOST serious issue is
whether or not to continue free
high school education. The
Education Ministry has proposed
raising social insurance
payments by 0.2 percent to fund
free high school education or,
alternatively, impose an overall
education tax.
As for the overall fiscal budget,
the various ministers have been
unable to agree so far on a cut of
more than $650 million, well
short of the $1 billion goal. That
cut, moreover, will be spread over
an entire calendar year. The
savings realized in the present
fiscal year will amount to no more
than $300 million.
Senior economists advising the
government maintain that even a
SI billion saving is not enough to
set the economy straight. Prof
Michael Bruno and Prof. Eitan
Berglass appeared before the
Cabinet to urge an S800 million
cut in government spending and
a $1.2 billion cut in subsidies a
total of some $2 billion. They also
recommended that the gover-
nment refrain from imposing new
taxes because of their in-
flationary effects.
BUT THE government has
apparently disregarded their
advice and has taken a different
tack. It has levied new taxes and
has shelved indefinitely a wage-
price-tax freeze which labor and
management appeared only last
week on the verge of accepting.
Bruno said in an interview
published in Haaretz: "I believe
that eventually reality will
impose on us the demanded cuts.
We had an opportunity to cut the
budget in a controlled manner.
Eventually we will have to do it
in an arbitrary manner, either
because we shall not receive the
funds or because the situation in
the economy will dictate the cute
which we recommended."
In fact, the public may soon
take the lead in forcing the
government to take unpalatable
measures. Until now, Israelis
have been living well. Cost-of-
living increments linked to the
rising price index have been a
cushion against inflation. But
this is fast being eroded. The
COL increment due on Sep-
tember salaries, payable Oct. 1,
will be 13.2 percent. It ii
estimated, however, that wages
will decrease in value by about 10
percent in the next few months
because of the sharp rise in the
cost of basics.
European standards, Israeli
prices are a bargain. A loaf of
ordinary bread costs 10 cents. A
liter of milk is 30 cents. An egg
costs seven cents. A kilo of meat
sells for $5.25 and a gallon of
premium gasoline is $2.50. But
the average Israeli family must
now spend $500 a month to cover
its basic needs, according to the
Central Bureau of Statistics.
The new taxes will reduce
spendable income. The Treasury
expects to take in about $150
million from improved income
tax collections; $400 million from
the one-time levy on private cars,
boats and aircraft, securities and
business construction; and $350
million from reduced subsidies.
Living standards inevitably will

Ariel Sharon Sues 'Time' Magazine
A $60 million battle taking
place in New York has drawn
surprisingly little attention from
the mass media considering
one of the sides is a controversial
Israeli general who drew lots of
attention from the press not long
ago, and the other is one of the
press giants.
The general is Ariel Sharon,
who is credited with some of Is-'
reel's most impressive victories,
including turning the 1973 Yom
Kippur War's near debacle into a
military victory by crossing the
Suez Canal and threatening to
advance to Cairo. Sharon, as
Defense Minister under
Menachem Begin in 1982,
engineered Israel's invasion of
Lebanon to bring peace to Galilee
residents. He was subsequently
forced to give up the post when
an Israeli Commission of Inquiry
found he was ministerially (that
is, indirectly) responsible for
failure to prevent a massacre of
Palestinians in Beirut by
Christian Lebanese militiamen.
This, in fact, is what led to the
court battle with TIME
magazine, which Sharon is suing
for libel. In its issue of February
21, 1983, TIME claimed to have
knowledge of a classified ap-
pendix to the Commission's
report, which allegedly said that
Sharon had discussed avenging

Entitled "The Shaping of
Traditions," this program takes
the viewer from the destruction
of the Second Temple by the
Romans through the rise of
Christianity and Islam. It traces
the development of the Talmud
over a 500 year period, and the
stabilization of Western Europe
after the rise of Islam.

Each service features a Rabbi
and a cantor from among the dif-

County. The South County Rab-

servative, Orthodox, and so on.
Each service is less than an hour

attention span of someone who is
Rabbi Pollack, who performs
the chaplain duties at the hos-
pitals, explained that he was
motivated to initiate this project
by observing that the High Holy
Days is the most difficult period
for a Jew to be hospitalized.
"This is true for Christians
during Christmas and Easter,"
Rabbi Pollack pointed out, "but
on those days a Christian patient
can tune in to his choice of any of
several services broadcast on
most TV stations. A Jew
hospitalized on Yom Kippur,
(this year on Saturday) on the
other hand, would turn his TV on
only to be faced with a choice of
cartoons ."

will be able to take advantage of

Wiesenthal Center: Hype Or Holocaust Trust?
Copyright Baltimore Jewish Times
Reprint by Special Arrangement
The Simon Wiesenthal
Center, the nation's largest
institution devoted to the
study of the Holocaust, is
essentially the fulfillment
of one man's vision, re-
flecting his personality and
style in keeping alive
memories of the Holocaust
and combatting anti-Sem-
itism today.
But that man is not Simon
Wiesenthal. The famed Nazi
hunter and advocate of justice
has given the Los Angeles-based
Center his name, and with it,
recognition and stature. The man
who has given the Center form
and substance, though, is a 50-
year-old Orthodox rabbi from
New York named Marvin Hier.
To understand the Wiesenthal
Center one must first understand
Rabbi Hier, a man who, sup-
porters and critics agree, is a
genius at what he does. He has an
uncanny ability to accomplish his
dreams, to inspire people, to
attract publicity for his cause, to
raise funds and a great deal of
ADMIRERS point to Rabbi
Hier's long list of ac-
complishments at the Wiesenthal
Center. In less than seven years
of existence it has received
contributions from well over
200,000 regular donors, many of
whom have never given money to
Jewish causes, malting it one of
the largest Jewish organizations
in the world. The current facility
includes a museum, a library and
research facilities.
An ambitious expansion
program has just been launched
which, at a cost of $30 million,
will nearly quadruple its size. The
new site will feature a much-
enlarged Holocaust museum, a
600-seat lecture hall, a film and
video production studio, a large
film vault, a 5.000- volume
research library, and classrooms
and offices for use by Yeshiva
University of Los Angeles, which
is affiliated with the Center, and
the Center itself.
More than its physical growth,
though, the Center has made an
international reputation for itself
through its museum, its
Academy Award-winning
documentary on the Holocaust
entitled "Genocide," and its
increasing involvement as a
watchdog against current anti-
Semitism in the U.S. and around
the world.
Among its social activities, the
Wiesenthal Center led the
bovcott against CBS-TV for
allowing pro-PLO actress
Vanessa Redgrave to portray a
Holocaust heroine in "Playing
For Time," it spearheaded the
national campaign against the
statute of limitations on Nazi war
crimes; and it brought interna-
tional attention to the case of
Raoul Wallenberg, leading to
honorary U.S. citizenship for the
Swedish diplomat who saved
thousands of Jewish lives during
World War II.
The Wiesenthal Center has
also published a book of 50 ar-
ticles by leading Holocaust
scholars as a companion to
"Genocide," produces a weekly
radio news program, started a
videotape record of Holocaust
survivors, and has recently
published volume one of a
proposed annual book of
scholarly discussion of the
Critics, however, say that for
all of its successes, the Wiesen-
thal Center lacks substance.
They charge that it is more
concerned with raising money
than in putting it to good use.
They point to the fact that it has
evolved from "The Simon Wie-
senthal Center for Holocaust
Studies" to simply "The Simon

Center seems to be: it can happen
again," says Rabbi Harold
Schulweis, who heads a large
Conservative congregation in Los
Angeles. "They point up only the
dangers and try to scare people."
Says a spokesman for the Cen-
ter: "Controlled hysteria is
sometimes necessary as a
marketing technique."
Martin Mendelsohn, the for-
mer head of the Special Litiga-
tion Unit of Nazi War Criminals
for the U.S. Department of
Justice who is now counsel to the
Wiesenthal Center, smiles when
he hears the accusations against
Rabbi Hier and the Center.
"Let's face it," he says, "the
critics resent him because he's
Orthodox, he's aggressive, and
most of all because he's so
successful. The establishment or-
ganizations shrei gevalt, raise
money and do nothing. They rt-

"The reality is that you can't
be effective in the Jewish world

Does the end justify the
means? For years the debates
have swirled m the Jewish com-
munity on the meaning and
demeaning of the Holocaust, on
whether Jewish organizations
have "used" the Holocaust to
raise funds.
THIS REPORT, based on a
visit to the Wiesenthal Center
and interviews with more than
three dozen people, focuses on
what the Center does, how and
why it does it, and why this

In Terrorist Trial
Relatives Urge Holiday for Defendants

NlSSlOfV po5ijAte
Relatives of defendants
in the Jewish underground
trial have sent a letter to
Police Minister Haim
Barlev demanding that
their relatives get leave to
spend the High Holy Days
with their families. The
relatives also began a cam-
paign to get rabbis to sign a
petition with the same
demand. The two Chief
Rabbis signed.
In their letter to Barlev, the
relatives demanded "at least the
same treatment given to Arab
detainees who were released
during the recent Moslem holiday
of Id Al Adha from the Ansar
camp." Ansar is a detention
camp in south Lebanon. The rela-

the defense persistently tried to
weaken the case for the prosecu-

explosive material used to
prepare bombs which were dis-

buses in Jerusalem last April 27,
was spoiled and might not have
been capable of causing damage
or injuries.
But under questioning by the
prosecution, Yonathan Licht,
head of the police explosives
laboratory in Jerusalem, said
that the explosives were placed
under the buses in such a way
that if detonated, they could have
killed passengers.

Mediator's Role
U.S. Takes Cautious Approach
Herzog Lists Peace Hopes
For New Year Ahead
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration appears to be
taking a cautious approach
to a reported Israeli request
that the U.S. mediate
between Jerusalem and
Syria for an Israeli troop
withdrawal from Lebanon.
State Department deputy
spokesman Alan Romberg said
here that Richard Murphy,
Assistant Secretary of State for
Near Eastern and South Asian
Affairs, who went to Lebanon
last week to investigate the ter-
rorist bombing of the U.S. Em-
bassy annex in east Beirut, is
"taking advantage" of his
presence in the Middle East to
meet with regional leaders.
Murphy, who met with President
Amin Gemayel of Lebanon and
Syrian President Hafez Assad,
was in Israel Monday.
doubtedly discussing the
situation in Lebanon, he was not
engaged in any negotiations,
Romberg stressed. "Certainly we
would like to be helpful," he said.
But, he added, any new move
would have to have the support
of all the parties.
The first indication of whether
the U.S. will again become active
in Lebanon may come after Is-
raeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir meets with Secretary of
State George Shultz in New York
Oct. 1, or when Premier Shimon
Peres meets with President
Reagan at the White House eight
days later.
The new Israeli coalition gov-
ernment has made a pull-out from

Israel's economic crisis its first

are the main reason Labor and
Likud agreed to a coalition. In
both areas, Jerusalem is expected
to look to Washington for help.

U.S. reportedly wants first to

its budget.
Shultz, an economist, is be-
lieved to have made helpinig
Israel's recovery a personal goal.
He has created a panel of outside

Terrorist Attack
In Retaliation for U.S. Veto?
(JTA) The terrorist
attack which destroyed the
U.S. Embassy annex in
east Beirut may have been
in retaliation for a U.S. veto
of a United Nations
Security Council resolution
demanding that Israel
withdraw its forces from
south Lebanon, a State
Department official said.
"It is certainly possible,"
Department spokesman John
Hughes said. He said that on
Sept. 8, two days after the UN
vote, a group identifying itself as
the "Islamic Jihad,r(Holy War)
telephoned a news agency in
Beirut saying it would act shortly
against American interests in the
Middle East. "I think the threat
was linked to the U.S. vote in the
Security Council on the Lebanon
debate," Hughes said.
AFTER A VAN loaded with
explosives blew up outside the
Embassy annex, the Islamic
Jihad claimed responsibility for
the attack. The same group
claimed responsibility for the
explosion that destroyed the U.S.
Embassy in West Beirut in April,
1983, and the car-bomb attack in
October, 1983, that killed some
250 American servicemen of the
multinational force then in
Although the group has been
linked to the regime of the
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in
Iran, Hughes said that the U.S.
has not yet identified the terror-
ists. He had no comments on
whether the U.S. would retaliate.
Hughes said it is believed that
two Americans were killed and 20
injured in the explosion. One of
the injured was U.S. Ambassador
Reginald Bartholomew. Also

President, State of Israel
As we approach the New Year
of 5745, we reflect on the turmoil
and problems, the achievements
and aspirations that mark Jewish
life everywhere.
During these very months,
millions of human beings are
commemorating the 40th anni-
versary of the defeat of the Nazi
forces. Bonds of blood and horror
and never-to-be-forgotten loss
bind Jews uniquely to that
savage episode in history. We
look back in deepest sorrow, and
we must examine with absolute
honesty whether we have fully
learned, the lessons of those
Certainly in the course of four
decades the innate vitality of the
Jewish people has come to the
fore. Survivors have been
rehabilitated and communities
have been strengthened. Above
all, the independent State of the
Jewish people has risen, has
overcome incredible obstacles
and absorbed many hundreds of
thousands. Israel today has to its
credit remarkable achievements
in many a field of endeavor. The
dry bones of the prophet
Ezekiel's vision have taken on
flesh, breathed again, become a
nation in their own land.
Yet we must wonder sadly why
so soon after the overwhelming
historic experiences of Holocaust
and national revival, assimilation
claims so many; effective Jewish
education reaches so few; the
impulse to Link one's own life
with Israel, the center of the
Jewish people's life, has not
touched more than a brave and
dedicated minority.
Our generation has been
granted the opportunity to
rebuild our national existence in
our historic land, the opportunity
longed for, during two millennia,
and not now to be missed.
Chapters in history are not
neatly closed. Forty years after
the defeat of the Nazis, we are
witness to rising anti-Semitism.
We are called upon to combat it,
and we are called upon as well to
respond to the urgent need for aid
ana rescue of Jews in the Soviet
Union, Syria, Ethiopia and other
foci of intolerance and unrest.
In Israel itself we must battle
on many fronts for peace and
security, for political stability,
economic recovery, adequate
absorption of newcomers, mutual
tolerance among all sections of
the population, retention of the
high standards we have been
reaching in the arts and sciences,
education and research, both
theoretical and industrial.
But not least, we must battle
against any expression of ex-
tremism and intolerance which
are a disgrace to the Jewish
people, an aberration from
Jewish history, and no leas than a
violation of the Torah.
It is gratifying to note the
healthy, adverse reaction of the
majority of Israel's people to
such manifestations at both
extremes. Israel's elections have
been truly democratic. Only a
minority of the world's countries
can make this claim. By the same
token, we are encouraged to hope
and believe that Israel will be
able to face and solve its political
and economic difficulties through
a responsible government
translating the will of the elector-
ate into reality.
We look forward to a year of
peace, development and human
understanding, a year of dedica-
tion to Jewish education and to
the realization of the ideals of the
Jewish tradition in Israel and in
every community where Jews

in sentences. He learns very
fast," she added.
Without the professional
services provided by Project
Renewal, the boy might have
been passed off as mentally
retarded. In reality, all the boy is
guilty of is being from a "poor
environment," Ms. Weisel said.
She shuddered to think about
the youths here if there were no
services. "Dont ask! He wasn't
ready to sit. He wasn't ready to
hear what the teacher would say
to him. He didn't have the ability
to learn. Now, he is learning to
learn," she emphasized.
In Yoseftal and Kaplan
"learning to learn" is a major
objective because the home
environment is poor.
"There is no language. This is
the main problem. The children in
Yoseftal and Kaplan develop
their language very late," she
In a normal environment,
children start talking between 18
months and two years of age. In
Yoseftal and Kaplan, it is more
likely they will reach ages two-
and-a-half to three years before
the children begin to talk.
"This means children of three
to four years old have a gap in
their vocabulary compared to
normal children," she added.
The root of the problems for
these children is their home. "The
parents don't think they have to
talk with their children," Ms.
Weisel said. "A child is someone
you buy clothes for and keep
healthy." Besides, "What the
children get at home is shouting,
not talking."
Even if the parents change
their attitudes toward their
children which is what some
Project Renewal programs at-
tempt to do that wouldn't be
"The parents that are talking
to their children have little to
give them because they are very
poorly educated," Ms. Weisel
said. "They are not an example
(for their children)."
Project Renewal supports
many preschool and after-school
programs aimed at helping these
children catch up with their
Project Renewal is trying to
break this cycle of illiteracy. But
without the money from the
South County Jewish Federation,
these children may forever be
mistaken as mentally retarded.
If given a chance, these
children can be like any other
youth in Israel. They just need a
Cross County Cooperation Creates
'Kosher Konnection' Cloy
It started as a kosher hot lunch
program, but in a little more than
a year of its existence the
"Kosher Lunch Konnection" has
become a popular comprehensive
Activities program in the Delray
Beach area.
As one participant put it: "Our
older adults have become
recycled teenagers." Located at
Congregation Anshei Emuna, the
program offers in addition to a
nutritious lunch music, games,
discussions and lectures for
persons aged 60 years or more.
There is no set fee. Participants
are asked to contribute as they
can toward the costs.

Soviet Persecution Intensifies
Continued from Page 1
visit to the Kholmiansky apart-
ment, where he lives with his
parents, to "conduct a search."
Alexander's father, despite his
insistence, was not permitted to
witness the search. The KGB
men came awsy having "found a
pistol and ammunition" which
Alexander allegedly hid there.
Kholmiansky's real "crime," of
course, was being "a committed
and idealistic young Jew who
made an effort to help Judaism
survive in the Soviet Union,"
Rabbi Agler said. The refusenik
took part in an "underground
movement," training Hebrew
teachers and passing on religious
"contraband such as prayer
books and Sabbath candles.
When Rabbi Agler spoke with
him at his flat, Kholmiansky
often pointed to the ceiling vents,
when the subject became "sensa-
tive," and they reverted to
communicate by writing on a
magic slate.
Rabbi Agler urged his congre-
gants and all members of the
community to write letters or
post cards to Soviet Ambassador
Anatoly Dobrynin, 1124 16th
Street NW, Washington, D.C.
20036. As in all such cases, Rabbi
Agler explained, the Soviets are
less likely to mistreat a refusenik
"if they realize the world is
paying attention." The refuse-
niks, in addition, usually learn of
the reaction in the West and it
helps boost their morale.

Chayefsky Play Read At
Beth Shalom Selihot Service
Most Congregations precede
the Selihot service, prior to Rosh
Hashana, with a social gathering.
Temple Beth Shalom of Boca
Raton this year innovated by
adding an enrichment program
appropriate for the occasion.
Under the direction of Prof.
John M. Lowe, a cast of
volunteer members read selec-
tions from Paddy Chayefsky's
TV play Holiday Song. The plot,
particularly apt for Selihot night
and its penitential emphasis,
revolves around a cantor in
suburban New York who loses his
faith in G-d just before the High
Holy Days as a result of all the
evil and violence he sees around
him. He refuses to officiate at the
Holy Days services, to the
consternation of his family and
the community.
However, through a series of
fortuitous even miraculous
coincidences, the old cantor
becomes G-d's instrument in
bringing together two Holocaust
survivors, a man and his wife,
who had become separated at
Auschwitz and an adjacent labor
camp and who had each thought
the other was dead. As a result of
this evidence of G-d's mysterious
workings, the cantor regains his
faith and enters upon the Holy
Days services with fervor and
unquestioning piety.
Casting requirements, Prof.
Lowe told the Floridian, were for
highly skilled artists of im-
provisation, which would have
made the task difficult even for
seasoned performers. Still, his
inexperienced recruits came
through with considerable dazzle
and were met with enthusiasm by
the congregation.
The participants in the reading
were: President Reuben Saltz-
man, Cantor Joseph Pollack,
Goldie Colton, Sam Friedman,
Gloria Greenfield, Dr. Hyman
Henkin, Ralph Kaufman, Matty
Kaufman, Frank Margolia and
Sol Moskowitz.
Summit Has School In Israel
For Emotionally Troubled Youth
The Summit Institute in
Israel, located in Jerusalem,
accepts both Israeli and
American students in its resi-
dential treatment units, at a cost
which is no higher than that
charged by most similar
American facilities.
The institute in Israel is an
outgrowth of the well-known
Summit programs for emo-
tionally, disturbed youth which
began in New York. One of its
unique aspects is treatment of
students, who might otherwise
require a closed hospital setting,
within the community.
The institute was established,
among other reasons, to answer
the needs of families with an
emotionally disturbed youngster
who have wished to make Aliy ah
(move to Israel) but hesitated
because of not finding a suitable
treatment facility for their child.
It also provides a suitable frame-
work for those wishing to expose
an emotionally troubled youth to
a positive Israel experience.
One of the indication of the
high quality of the institute is
that the Israeli kibbutz move-
ments, which maintain high
education standards, have chosen
it as their official residential
treatment facility. While the cost
is relatively high currently
upward of $1,400 per month (all
inclusive) officials of the insti-
tute say they have never refused
treatment to someone because of
financial considerations. The
institute goes out of its way to
obtain financial assistance for
those who need it, and does some
fund-raising itself.

Begin Out of Surgery Following
Operation on Prostate
JERUSALEM (JTA) Former Premier
Menachem Begin underwent surgery for a prostate
condition at Shaare Zedek Hospital and is recovering and
feeling well, according to a hospital bulletin. His aide,
Yehiel Kadishai, told reporters that the operation was
weekend for tests which determined that he did not have a
malignancy. His surgeon, Dr. Amihai Farkas, head of the
urology department at Shaare Zedek, said his condition
was not uncommon for a man of his age.
Sources close to Begin expressed hope that once he is
fully recovered he would emerge from the self-imposed
seclusion in which he has lived since he resigned as prime
minister in August, 1983, and begin writing his long-
planned book on "the generation of Holocaust and
Border Fence Pulled Down
TEL AVIV (JTA) A fence on the Israel-
Lebanon border which army sources said had been erected
to halt cattle in infected herds in Lebanon from straying
into Israel and to obstruct illegal crossings over the
border has been pulled down, Israeli journalists report.
SOUTH LEBANON Army commander Antoine
Lahad reportedly complained that construction of the
fence could be construed as a political act. Lebanese
sources had complained that the fence had been put up as
part of Israeli plans to divert the Wazzani stream into
But Israelis say the Wazzani flows naturally into
Israel and there is no need to divert its waters. A United
Nations investigating team recently found that Lebanese
complaints about water diversion in this area were un-

WIESENTHAL thought the
Americans had come to offer him
an honorary degree. "We ended
up talking for four straight
days," Rabbi Hier said. "Simon
told us his sad tale of how since
1946 he had hoped to create a
Holocaust institute in the United
States. He was insistent that any
institution to which he lent his
name would have to be 'more
than just photos on a wall
walls as silent as graves,' "
Rabbi Hier recalled.
"Simon told us that too many
institutions collected Holocaust
information and then, in his
words, 'put it in the freezer.' He
wanted a vibrant center, not
afraid to speak out on current
issues. He wasn't worried about
the Jewish establishment or quiet
diplomacy. He wanted action. So
did we."
And so an unlikely marriage
was made in Vienna between
Simon Wiesenthal, a secular,
non-Zionist Jew who devoted his
life to the pursuit of Nazi
criminals, and Marvin Hier, an
Orthodox Zionist who had spent
his career as a pulpit rabbi.
Wiesenthal agreed to lend his
name and expertise to the new
center and to donate his vast
collection of Nazi-hunting files to
the center upon his death. Rabbi
Hier agreed to make the center
the social action institution Wie-
senthal envisioned and to con-
tribute at least $5,000 a month to
Wiesenthal's Documentation
Center in Vienna for his ongoing
ONE KEY difference
remained: Wiesenthal was and
remains a universalist on the
Holocaust. He prefers to speak of
the 11 million people of all faiths
killed by the Nazis rather than
the six million Jews who
Many Jews, especially sur-
vivors, are infuriated with this
thinking. They argue that unlike
the others who died, the Jews
alone were singled out for total
annihilation and were not simply
victims of war. "He alienates all
of the Jewish survivors," says
Eke Wiesel of Wiesenthal's
Dr. Alex Grobman, former
director of the Wiesenthal Center
and a Holocaust expert, said that
Wiesenthal made "a colossal
blunder" referring to 11 million
victims. "His motives were
understandable," Grobman said.
"He felt that few people care
about the Jews, and he could
broaden interest in the cause if he
included the Christians. But first
of all, 11 million is an arbitrary
number. And more importantly,
it distorts history and de-em-
phasizes the very crucial dif-
ference between the Jews and the
other victims."
cussed the matter in a 1980
article in Midstream. The
Erofeasor of Holocaust Studies at
[ebrew University in Jerusalem
said that Simon Wiesenthal
"invented the '11 million' for-
mula that is a key slogan in the
denial of the uniqueness of the
Jewish experience. He said that
the number "in purely historical
terms is sheer nonsense" because
Wiesenthal's figure is either
much too high (about 500,000
non-Jews died in concentration
camps) or much too low (about 20
million non-Jewish civilians died
at the hands of the Nazis during
the war).
"His mistake is not arith-
metical, but conceptual," wrote
Bauer of Wiesenthal. "Basic to it
is the lack of comprehension for
what one might call the gradation
of evil." Bauer argued that this
universal approach threatens to
de-Judaize and dissipate the
meaning and impact of the

Shamir invited Mobutu to visit
Israel. The Zaire leader indicated
he would come during the latter
part of November.
Zaire restored diplomatic rela-

do so since the 1973 Yom Kippur
War. According to Pazner,

ZAIRE'S president asked for
increased aid in the civilian
sector, especially agricultural as-
sistance. They decided to discuss
this further when Mobutu visits
Israel, but meanwhile both
countries will explore the subject,
Pazner said.
Mobutu also referred to what
he said were Zaire's "problems"
with the U.S. Congress and asked
Israel to use its influence in the
matter. (Congress has balked
against military and economic
assistance to Zaire on grounds
that the Mobutu regime is not
democratic.) Pazner said Shamir
promised that Israel would help if
it can but stressed that the
matter was not in Israel's hands.
Shamir attended a reception
given by President Reagan at the
Waldorf Astoria Sunday night
and he was at the General As-
sembly Monday when Reagan
addressed the world body.
Shamir was also scheduled to
meet Monday with the foreign
ministers of Britain and Canada.
The deputy premier was also
scheduled to meet with Secretary
of State George Shultz this week.
He will address the General As-
sembly Oct. 3.
Four Americans Airlifted

ARTHUR BERGER, spokesman for the U.S.
Embassy in Tel Aviv, said, "We are grateful" for the
Israeli offer to treat the victims of the bombing and to
make all medical facilities available if needed. He said the
four servicemen were flown by U.S. Navy helicopters from
Beirut to Ben Gurion Airport.
The decision by the U.S. to accept Israel's offer was
in sharp contrast to its rejection of a similar offer after the
