mer Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger said that he does not
believe that there is presently an
opportunity for a dramatic
breakthrough toward a solution
of the Middle East Arab-Israeli
"This is a period in which only

ger told more than 600 people

the American Friends of Haifa

HE NOTED that Israel is in
the midst of an economic crisis
and is being governed by a
coalition government, and that
varius elements in the Arab
world are divided and warring.
He said that in this uncertain
situation in the Mideast, no com-
prehensive solution is likely to be
But Kissinger, who received an
Honorary Doctorate of Philo-
sophy from Haifa University, at

ments are important. As an
example, he cited the agreement

that agreement has been working

Kissinger also called for "pro-
longed and profound dialogue"
between Israel and the U.S. to
help reach a solution in the Mid-
east. He said that he believed
that a strong America is essential
for the free world and for Israel.

Kreisky also made certain that
his favorites would continue to
occupy key ministries.
This meant that Herbert
Salcher, the finance minister,
whose proposal also those of
Kreisky to tax interest on
savings accounts had bean the
main reason for the losses suf-
fered by the Socialists, remained
in his post.
AT THE same time, Kreisky
was instrumental in moving the
then-interior minister, Erwin
Lane, to the Foreign Ministry, to
ensure that the new government
would hold to the same course.
Salcher and Lane, however,
went too far in implementing
what they took to be their
mentor's policies.
Without Cabinet backing,
Salcher picked a fight with his
own predecessor at the Finance
Ministry, Hannes Androsch, who

he does Menachem Begin.

1985. "Last year's campaign was
a successful one. The auto-
nomous Family Division, insti-
tuted last year, has served a very
definite need in our community
by involving more people on a

News in Brief
'Warm Friends' Air Problems
By JTA Services
Premier Shimon Peres began two
days of intensive talks with the
Reagan administration Monday
with a two-and-a-half-hour
meeting with Secretary of State
George Shultz which apparently
covered the entire gamut of
issues between Israel and the
United States.
"We had a lot to talk about,'
Shultz told reporters after Peres
escorted him from his suite at the
Regency Hotel where the meeting
took place. He added that "two
warm and close friends"
discussed "our common oppor-
tunities and problems."
Neither Shultz nor Peres would
be specific about the meeting,
particularly about any discussion
on Israel's economic problems or
the proposed Israeli plan for
withdrawing its troops from
south Lebanon.
Toronto Nixes Arab
Book-Ban Demand
TORONTO The Public
Libraries of Greater Toronto
have refused a request by the
Canadian Arab Federation to
remove from their shelves 'The
Haj," a best-selling novel by
Leon Uris about the Arab-Jewish
conflict in Palestine before and
after the State of Israel was
The Arab Federation has asked
Attorney General Roy McMurty
to classify the book as hate
literature, paving the way for a
legal ban. A spokesman for
McMurty said last week that the
request was under review. The
Federation has supplied libraries
with copies of adverse reviews
from the media.
The novel has been among the
top 10 on the national best-seller
list for 23 weeks and has recently
ranked No. 4. Reviewers in the
United States and Canada have
criticized it sharply for
demeaning Arabs in general as
lazy cowards, boastful murderers
and rapists.

Ship for Yom Kippur

Chief Rabbis
Visit Histadrut
Israel's two Chief Rabbis
established a precedent Monday
by paying the first ever official
rabbinical visit to the Histadrut
Central Committee.
The Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi,
Avraham Shapira, and the
Sephardi Chief Rabbi, Mordechai
Eliahu, were invited by
Histadrut Secretary General
Yisrael Kessar when he took
office several months ago. They
were greeted by the blowing of a
shofar from Yemen the shofar
in honor of the rabbis and one
from Yemen in honor of Kessar
who was born there.
The visit was described as
warm, friendly and marked by
expressions of good will and
hopes for future cooperation by
the rabbis and the trade union
convoy of the day had already
left. In such cases, ships must
drop anchor and wait for the next
convoy a delay of at least 12
hours, which would have brought
the vessel to Eilat on Yom
The Egyptians sent for a
special tugboat to bring the ship
through the canal at once. The
Israeli vessel arrived in Eilat a
few hours before the start of the
fast on Friday.
Volunteer Confab Center
Flap Reported
VIENNA The opposition
Peoples Party is trying to block
construction of an international
conference center here, financed
in large measure by Arab states,
which it says could lead to
discrimination against Israel and
involve Austria in diplomatic
The project was initiated some
years ago by former premier
Bruno Kreisky, primarily to
create jobs. Because of budget
deficits, he appealed to several
Arab countries, notably Saudi
Arabia and the Gulf states, to
help with the financing.
According to the Peoples Party,
the contract allows Arab
shareholders to influence the
agenda or at least the invitations
for conferences, from which Israel
might be excluded.
Kreisky went ahead with the
project despite a plebiscite that
produced more than one million
negative votes one-seventh of
the country's population. It did
not progress far, however, when
Kreisky's Socialist regime was
unseated in the April, 1983
elections and waa replaced by a
new governing coalition of
Socialists and Liberals.
Israeli Smokers Face
No-Tobacco Daze
TEL AVIV Israeli smokers
and many of them are said to
be among the heaviest smokers in
the world will soon be gasping
for a cigarette. The Dubek
cigarette factory, which has a
monopoly on the production of
domestic smokes, has closed
down following the refusal of
cigarette wholesalers to handle
locally-made cigarettes.
They claim their profit margin
is too small to warrant the
business. Some 800 Dubek
workers were sent home on
compulsory leave and temporary
workers were dismissed.
Many tobaccanists and kiosks
were reported to have run out of
domestic cigarettes this weekend.
The price of imported smokes
rose almost immediately, with a
pack of the cheaper American
brands selling for over $4.
Rabin Offers Liberal
West Bank Policy
TEL AVIV Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin has
indicated a new, more liberal
policy on the West Bank. He
assured Arab Labor MK Abed
Daroushe at a private meeting
that the government was "doing
its utmost to improve and
cultivate the quality of life for the
residents of Judaea, Samaria and
the Gaza District."
Rabin also promised to make
an effort to replace Jewish
mayors of Arab towns in those
territories with local Arab resi-
dents and to encourage the in-
clusion of local residents in the
civil administrations.
This would be a sharp
departure from the policy of the
previous Likud-led government
which deposed the Arab mayors
of most large towns on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip and filled
their offices with Jews appointed
by the military government, in
many instances military officers.

{Economic Decisions
They Whip Up More Conflict
Friday, October 19,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
Recipe For A Federation
Department Merger
- A series of proposals by
Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai to impose a one-time
tax on cars, businesses and
factories, as well as taxes
on children allowances and
luxury flats, ran into a snag
as members of the Minis-
terial Economic Committee
refused to approve them.
On the surface, it appeared
that some of the ministers were
angry with Modai for not
providing them with sufficient
and accurate information prior to
the meeting. At least this was the
| contention of Gad Yaacobi,
I acting chairman of the commit-
tee, and Deputy Premier David
Levy who was especially
vociferous in his criticism of
BELOW THE surface,
however, the conflict between
Modai and Levy was not
relegated to purely economic
matters nor informational
inadequacies but rather a
carefully planned political
development on the part of Levy,
according to political pundits.
Levy, a member of Likud's Herut
wing, is preparing to present
.himself as a champion of labor's
rights in the April, 1985,
! Histadrut elections.
He has, therefore, been
pounding away at Modai's
economic proposals and has
charged that the unity gover-
nment's economic measures
taken so far will bear down
hardest on the wage earner.
Levy's aides have been saying
publicly that Modai, who is a
member of Likud's Liberal wing,
[is "shooting aimlessly in all
^directions" without really having
Ian overall policy of solving the
I nation's economic crisis. Levy
Ihas resigned from the special
ministerial committee
negotiating economic matters
|with Histadrut.
iLevy and Modai also points to
the ever-growing possibility of a
split between Herut and the
Liberals, which may leave the
Liberals in the unity government
and Herut in the opposition.
Science and Technology Minister
*fiideon Patt (Liberal) warned
Fhat the differences between the
Liberals and Herut may lead to a
pplit that will have the Liberals
aying in the government and
utting their ties with Herut.
"We have not forgotten the
vay Herut treated us on the eve
PI the elections," Patt said. This
Ms a reference to the reduction
P the number of Liberals on the
kud ticket.
While decisions on Modai's tax
proposals were deferred, an
"Teement was reached between

were exactly the opposite of what
needed to be done.
They charged that the
limitations would speed up in-
flated prices of domestically-
produced items, that it might
expose Israel to counter-
measures against its own ex-
ports, and that taxes imposed on
imported luxury items would be
A major problem arising from
the limitation on imports is the
conflict between this measure

cials conceded that the new

spirit of these agreements, they
said they intend to persuade
overseas trading partners that

Quite surprisingly, the ban on
imported luxury items has not
yet created a last-minute buying
spree. Shops in Tel Aviv did not
experience any increase in
buying. Supermarkets and
department store managers
reported normal buying, with
only a slight increase in the sales
of imported cosmetics and
alcoholic beverages.
One place that was busier than
usual was the black market on

where shekels were being sold at

Israel's Underground Terrorists Shock to Nation
The discovery by Israel's
security forces of a Jewish
underground in the State of
Israel, whose members are
charged with committing
and planning acts of terror
and murder against Arabs
in Judea and Samaria and
in Jerusalem, has come as a
shock to Israel's citizens,
religious and non-religious
alike. Since most of those
involved are religious and
members of Gush Emunim.
one must ask: how could
these young men deviate
from normal Jewish values,
and where did their educa-
tion fail?
This ominous manifestation in
the religious national camp will
certainly be the subject of much
heart-searching and research for
years to come. But we have the
clear duty of condemning this
phenomenon as an extreme
deviation from classical religious
WHETHER these young men
are guilty or innocent will be
proved in our courts of justice. If
they are found guilty, and some
have already admitted guilt in
court, there can be no question
that they have severely erred by
substituting what seems to them
momentarily worthwhile and
advantageous for the forbidden
and inadmissible.
There can be no doubt that the
Jewish population in Judea and
Samaria was seriously disturbed
and aroused by the repeated
hostile acts of some of their Arab
neighbors. Stone-throwing at
buses and cars, which injured and
in one case even killed
passengers, or the killing of Jew-
ish students in Hebron and
elsewhere, certainly provoked the
settlers. Some apparently
believed that they had the right
to take the law into their own
hands and thus undermine the
authority of Israel's government.
One dreads to contemplate the
immeasurable harm which would
have been caused to Israel had
they succeeded in carrying out
their plans to blow up the
mosques on the Temple Mount or
the six buses with Arabs and
Jewish passengers. They would
have brought about the murder
of innocent human beings.
JACOB NEVER forgave his
two sons, Simon and Levi, for the
slaughter which they committed
in Shechem INablusl even though
they acted out of retaliation and
provocation. The patriarch's
condemnation, "Cursed be their
anger for it was cruel ... Ye have
besmirched my name among the
inhabitants of the land," has
reverberated throughout Jewish
history, warning against ex-
tremism which could lead to
heinous crimes.
There are three characteristics
of this organized Jewish un-
derground: 1) a militancy that
subverts government authority;
2) the loss of moral dimensions;
and 3) an "end of days" syn-
Let us briefly examine each of
these factors:
This woman passenger died in her seat when a bomb
exploded on a bus in Ashdod in March, 1984. A
Palestinian group took credit for the blast, which
injured 11 others.
1) The use by individuals or a
group of individuals of arms and
force in order to solve national
problems is tantamount to at-
tacking the legally-elected
democratic government of Israel.
One can understand such use of
arms by Israel's underground
fighters against British Man-
datory power. Inconceivable is
the lack of understanding by
these young people of the fun-
damental difference between the
period of foreign and hostile rule
and that of the independent and
sovereign State of Israel.
Young people should be en-
thusiastic to fulfill a great ideal
such as settlement in all parts of
Eretz Israel. But it is an entirely
different matter to inflame
passion which may lead to
violence and murder. To en-
courage young people to great
chalutzic (pioneering) deeds in
Judea and Samaria and to
conduct an open democratic
struggle for such a cause, like
that led by Rabbi Zvi Yehuda
Kook, is certainly acceptable.
But to take the law into one's
own hand, against the will of the
majority of the people, is totally
to misread his message.
2) BY PICKING retaliatory
targets who were innocent, the
underground group betrayed
their own ideals. One could
perhaps understand their actions
against those leaders of the PLO
in Judea and Samaria who had
been responsible for the many
killings and attacks upon Jewish
civilians there, even though one
could not accept these actions as
correct. But to plan to kill indis-
criminately, and even to en-
danger Jewish lives as in the
case of the buses which may have
had Jewish as well as Arab

understanding of the concepts of
the "end of days," of redemption
and the measiah. To believe, as
some reportedly did. that it is
necessary to blow up the Temple
Mount and destroy the mosques
in order to bring about redem-
ption, is pure heresy and flies in
the face of all responsible
religious teachings.
Indeed, it is difficult to
comprehend how a group of
young men who had been nur-
tured on the teachings of
religious Zionism could have
strayed so far in their un-
derstanding of the Messianic
process. What false messiahs
served as their mentors, and
what false prophets inspired
them to controvert the funda-
mentals of Judaism?
IN ORDER to avoid a
repetition of such disasters in the
religious national camp
however small in numbers the
deviating group might be its
Torah sages and scholars must,
in the wake of the public censure
by Israel's Chief Rabbis, im-
mediately make their voices
loudly heard in condemnation of
the misguided ideas which have
gripped these young men, whose
personal integrity, high idealism
and pioneering example were held
in the highest esteem by all who
know them.
House OK's Free
Trade for Israel
The House has approved the
establishment of a free trade area
with Israel by a 416-6 vote. The
Senate earlier adopted a similar
bill by a 96-0 vote. Differences
between the two bills will have to
be ironed out by a conference
committee, but the final legisla-
tion was expected to be adopted
by Congress before it adjourned.
The only concern about the
Free Trade Act. which was
sought by the Reagan Admin-
istration, came from some of the
areas whose products could be
hurt by Israeli competition.
There rests an urgent
obligation upon our rabbis and
mentors to explain our spiritual
tenets in the clearest possible
form: Halacha and morality;
what is Agada; what is Geula;
what is "Atchalta DiGeula"
the beginnings of the redemptive
process; what are the true
Messianic goals which have a
constructive function in the
building up of the Jewish State,
and what are false acts of pseudo-
mess ianism.

pronounce with a united voice
that this is not the Jewish <

A single performance of
Galgalim the only one for
South Florida has been
scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 8,
at the FAU University Theatre,
at 8 p.m.
The performance is being
sponsored by the Adolph and
Rose Levis Jewish Community
Center, from which tickets may

Galgalim is a blend of music
and theatre which shows Israel
through the eyes of Brynie, an
American Olah (immigrant), and
Moshe, a Sabra (native Israeli).
Their Broadway-like presentation
features a unique use of special
media effects, including film clips
projected on a huge background
screen, which gives the audience
a theatrical setting that envelops
them in the emotions and aspira-
tions of the dynamic stage
Several costume changes and
use of life-sized dolls add to the
blend of artistry and entertain-

Galgalim has been acclaimed as a
show representative of the hopes
and dreams of Israel, enjoyed by
audiences throughout North

The period between 1492, when
the Jews were expelled from
Spain, and 1789, when the French
Revolution occurred, is the focus
of the fifth program in the series
"Heritage: Civilization and the
Jews." It airs on Channels 42 and

"Ghetto." "Pogrom,"
"Protestant." "Printing press,"
are some of the familiar terms
which come from this period, best
known for the Renaissance, the
Reformation and the Enlighten-

Europe break out of seclusion
and begin to enjoy tolerance and
economic opportunity in some
places while persecution in
others becomes more violent than
ever, like that by the Cossacks in
Eastern Europe. The so-called
Judaeo-Christian Ethic begins to
emerge, just as the Judaic-
Hellenic and Judaic-Islamic
blends were tried in earlier

Rabbi Sacks Named
First To Get
Federation Rabbinic Award
Rabbi Louis Sacks of Cong.
Anshei Emunah has been named
as the first recipient of the
Federations' General Assembly
Rabbinical Recognition Award,
Marianne Bobick, president of
the South County Jewish
Federation announced this week.
Rabbi Sacks will represent the
South County Federation to the
United Jewish Appeal Rabbinic
Cabinet at the General Assembly
of the Council of Jewish Federa-

Toronto, Canada, Nov. 14-18.
The General Assembly is the
annual conference of over 2,000
Jewish communal leaders
throughout North America.
Rabbi Sacks, since assuming
the position of spiritual leader at
Congregation Anshei Emuna in
1982, has become a leader in the
South County Jewish com-
munity. He is Chairman of the
Vaad Ha-Kashrut of the South
County Rabbinical Associaion,
and is a member of the Board of
the South County Jewish
Rabbi Sacks received his BA
degree from the University of
Chicago and went on to obtain a
PhD and ThD from the Uni-
versity of Central Indiana. He
was ordained as a rabbi following
his studies at Hebrew Theo-
logical College in Chicago, in
Skokie, 111.
A former professor of Talmud
at the Hebrew Theological
College and the head of the
Kehillah in Chicago, Rabbi Sacks
is the author of the classical two-
volume "Menachem Zion," and
also published the commentary

was astonished and even dis-
mayed to read your contemp-

To characterize Falwell's
speech as "patter," I believe, is
irresponsible end unwise. This
man has millions of followers in
America who respect and admire
him. They could easily respond to
the word "patter" as many Jews
react to Jesse Jackson's
Israel's former premier Mena-

respects him as a true friend of
Israel. Does Israel, and do
American Jews, have so many
friends that we can thoughtlessly
toss them aside?
Boca Raton
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The saga of the Holocaust in
which six million Jews were sent
to their deaths in the most brutal
and fiendish manner, must never
be forgotten. This was the first
attempt at mass genocide which
almost succeeded.
We hear from Anti-Semites
that the Holocaust never hap-
pened and that it is used to vin-
dicate the establishment of the
State of Israel. Some condemn
the Jews for not resisting but
walking to their doom like sheep.
Jessie Jackson on several occa-
sions has asked, "Why did the
Jews fail to resist?"
I recently finished a book
called "Jewish Resistance,"
written by Lester Eckmsn and
Chaim Lazar, two members of the
Jewish Resistance. They vividly
describe the untold suffering of
the Jews in the ghettos of Lithu-
ania, White Russia, and Poland.
The Jews in these places were
confined to ghettos, living under
the most inhumane conditions.
Thousands were rounded up daily
and killed. They lived in filth and
squalor on starvation rations-
Despite this, leaders arose who
were able to escape from the
ghettos and to join partisan
groups. They lived like animals,
stealing food and ammunition in
order to survive. Their goal was
to get ss many of their people out
of the ghetto. Their ingenuity in
getting in and out of the ghetto,
providing for food, killing thou-
sands of Germans, blowing up
trains and depots indicates their
strong desire to live and merits
the commendation of the world.
Their heroic deeds are indelibly
inscribed in Jewish annals along
with past Jewish heroes.
Among them were Dr. Atlas,
Haim Yellin, the Belsky brothers,
Moshe Jaffe, Joseph Glazman
and Simon Gorin. All of them
showed the leadership and
heroism that has made the Jews
unique. Their aim was to save as
many Jews as possible so that
Judaism would survive. Most of
these heroes lost their lives.
The surviving Jewish Partis-
ans still meet regularly. They
have established the Museum of
Partisans and Combatants in Tel
Aviv. This was set up to memo-
rialize the heroism of the Jewish
Resistance, and instill in the
heart of every Jew that Judaism
must never die.
The spirit and resistance put
up by the partisans tells me why
Israel has been victorious in five
wars though greatly out num-
bered. They have the partisan
spirit and know that one defeat
means death for Israel. We in
America must fight for Israel's
right to live. We must expose the
Jessie Jacksons and Lou Farrak-
hans and other Anti-Semites. Am

Documented Hostility
Friday, October 19,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
Just How Friendly Is President Reagan to Israel?
While many pundits have
been busy writing Walter
Mondale's political obit-
uaries, the rumors of the
demise of the Democratic
Presidential ticket may be
premature. Surveys
consistently show that
significant numbers of
voters make up their minds
during the last few days
before election day and
many of them when ac-
tually entering the voting
In any close Presidential elec-
tion, the Jewish vote, which is
concentrated in states with large
blocs of electoral votes, becomes
crucial, and this November
should be no exception. That is
why both candidates are paying
attention to the American Jewish
community through personal
appearances, press releases and
surrogate speakers.
AS A FORMER Governor of
California, Reagan had little
opportunity to become involved
in Middle East policies. However,
*wrving in a state with a sizeable
Jewish population, Reagan did
address his share of Jewish func-
tions, maintaining a friendly atti-
tude while never having com-
mitted Jewish friends in his
personal or inner governmental
circles. This also remains true
As a candidate in 1980, Reagan
spoke out strongly against Carter
Administration policies to send
sophisticated weapons to Israel's
Arab enemies, and he declared
that Israel should have sover-
eignty over all of Jerusalem. At
the time, Reagan also spoke
about the future of the "West
Bank" being settled by direct
negotiations "without the threat
of a solution imposed by outside
These positive preelection
statements, it is important to
note, were largely penned by
Richard Allen, who served only
briefly as Reagan's National
Security Adviser, and who with
Secretary of State Alexander
Haig was regarded as sympa-
thetic to Israeli concerns. Largely
as a result of these statements,
Reagan was able to gain almost
as many Jewish votes as Carter
an unprecedented feat in
modern times for a Republican
HOWEVER, the actual record
of the Reagan Administration
has been mixed at best. On the
positive side, there continue to be
fine general statements of suport,
as for example, "the United
States and Israel stand forever
united," the creation of joint
U.S.-Israel teams to promote
strategic cooperation, and foreign
aid grants reaching new heights
with strong Congressional
backing, and bipartisan support
for a Free Trade Zone.
But on the other hand, early in
his Administration, Reagan
personally led the fight to ap-
prove the sale of AWACs aircraft
and other sophisticated
weaponry to Saudi Arabia. The
sale, it should be remembered,
was disapproved by the House of
Representatives by a 3-1 margin,
but approved by the Senate 52-48
after a bitterly fought battle.
Subsequently, the Administra-
tion unsuccessfully sought to sell
sophisticated weaponry to
Jordan, including I-Hawk mobile
missiles and F-16 fighter planes.
This was stopped by Congres-
sional pressure and the negative
comments of King Hussein
THE PROPOSED arming and
training of a Jordanian Rapid
Deployment Force was also
blocked by the Congress, but not
because of the lack of Admin-
istration pressure on Israel's
friends in Congress to look the
other way. More recently, Stinger
missiles were sold to Saudi
Arabia despite the terrorist
threat posed by transfer of these
portable, lethal weapons.
In the wake of Israel's incur-
sion into Lebanon in June, 1982,
Reagan suspended the sale of F-
16 fighter bombers promised to
Israel in 1978 and held up ap-
proval of technology transfers for
the Lavie aircraft to be built in
Israel, which were subsequently
approved. Highlighting Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger's
long-standing antipathy to Israel
were the needless confrontations
between U.S. Marines and Israeli
troops and the Defense Depart-
ment's refusal to establish liaison
between both forces. This un-
doubtedly was a factor in the
spurning of Israeli offers of
medical aid after the bombing of
Marine Headquarters in Beirut.
More ominous for the future,
however, is the Reagan Plan
which was repudiated by Israel
but recently proclaimed as being
"still alive." Some fear the plan
will be revived in a second
Reagan term.
THIS PLAN abandons the
Camp David Accords, and was
conceived without consultation
with Israel but after extensive
consultation with Jordan. It pre-
judges the outcome of the nego-
tiations called for by Camp
David, and could prove harmful
to Israel's security, since this
1982 formula does not rule out
eventual creation of a Palestinian
state on the "West Bank" after
the proposed confederation
between Palestinians and Jordan.
Looking ahead, this scenario is
not that remote because should
Iran and Iraq end their fighting
through exhaustion, Israel once
more could become the focus of
U.S. policy in the region.
Judging from the Reagan
Administration's previous ac-
tions enumerated above, and the
cast of characters who will be in
charge of policy, Israel could be
in for a rough time. No matter
how personally friendly and
instinctively supportive Pres-
ident Reagan might be, his style
is to rely on others for both policy
and implementation and that
also applies to the Middle East.
SO WHILE U.S.-Israel rela-
tions today appear to be in good
shape, after two years of acri-
mony, this could be the result of
both attention elsewhere and
election year politics and not
necessarily a harbinger of the

private meeting with Foreign
Minister and Deputy Premier
Yitzhak Shamir, who has been
attending the UN General As-
sembly and holding high-level
talks with foreign diplomats from
around the world. Shamir ac-
companied Peres in his talks in
Washington on Monday and
Peres also met with New
York's Mayor Edward Koch. The
meeting lasted about one hour.
Koch told reporters after the
meeting that he and the Israeli
Premier discussed economic
issues "as they relate to the city
of New York and Israel."
Peres, according to one of his
aides, sought advice from Koch,
who is credited with salvaging
New York City from its fiscal
crisis during his term in office, on
how to restore Israel's faltering
economy. "You have to say 'no*
to many people and groups,"
Koch reportedly advised.
LATER IN the day, Peres
attended a reception in his honor
at the Regency Hotel given by
the Israel Bond Organization.
The reception was followed by a
meeting between Peres and the
leadership of the United Jewish

burden of defense spending. He
noted that out of an annual
budget of about S21 billion, Israel
repays $11 billion, in loans and
interest. Of the remaining $10
billion, $5 billion is allocated for
defense. "This is a tremendous
burden," Peres said.
Israel is striving to change the
structure of its economy, with
emphasis on advanced industries
and technology, Peres told the
Jewish leaders. But for that
purpose, Israels needs the help of

Clinging Shadow
Continued from Page 1
Lane at the Foreign Ministry.
First, Lane had perpetuated
Kreisky's long-standing feud
with Israel, which Sinowatz had
tried to tone down by stating
that Austria's priorities lay in
Secondly, Lane had also
challenged a much more potent
foe President Ronald Reagan.
The Austrian foreign minister did
not lose any opportunity of
criticizing the United States. So
much so, that the Americans sent
an envoy to Vienna to emphasize
their displeasure.
THIS, and other factors,
obviously convinced the rather
lethargic Sinowatz that he had to
do something drastic, or be
regarded as a lame-duck chan-
To show that he was not acting
solely against Kreisky's pals, he
dismissed two relatively
unimportant ministers at the
same time as Salcher and Lane.
The latter did not leave
without a parting shot. He was
not anti-American, he declared.
He had merely been trying to tell
the Americans what they should
do in their own best interests.
As far as the Middle East was
concerned. Lane continued,
Austria should continue to side
with the Arabs.
Foreign Ministry, the jovial
Mayor of Vienna, Leopold Gratz,
seems unwilling to do that. He
has paid lip service to "con-
tinuity in Austria's foreign
policy," but stresses that he has
no intention of giving "good or
bad marks" to foreign statesmen
(as Lane did).
Nobody here expects the new
Austrian government to embrace
Israel, but if it adopts a hands-off
policy in the Middle East
except in the humanitarian field,
where Kreisky's efforts were
much appreciated Israel's
friends wUl be content.

I GRATZ WAS responding to a
uestion on the Austrian Mideast
jlicy. Austrian-Israel relations,
pthough reportedly improving,
ached a low point during the
adership of Chancellor Bruno
eisky, who although Jewish,
lad been consistently critical of
Israeli policies and maintained
tordial relations with Arab
oun tries and with Palestine
Liberation Organization chief
r'asir Arafat.
Some two dozen prominent
Jewish leaders met with Gratz
ere in the Seagram Building
lunder the auspices of the
American Section of the World
[Jewish Congress. Edgar
[ Bronfman, president of the WJC,
hosted the 90-minute meeting.
Gratz is in New York for the 39th
session of the United Nations
General Assembly.
When asked about Kreisky's
Mideast policies, Gratz pointed
out that Austria's current policy
does not necessarily reflect a
continuation of the former
Chancellor's policy, although he
praised Kreisky's role as
Austria's leader. He stepped
down last year and was replaced
by Fred Sinowatz.
HOWEVER, Gratz, a former
Mayor of Vienna for 11 years
until he was recently named
Foreign Minister, stressed that
Kreisky's concern for the Pales-
tinian people, as well as Jews in
the Soviet Union, was based on
humanitarian needs. "He was not
motivated by any ulterior
motives," the Austrian official
With regard to the proposal of
an international conference on
the Middle East, to include the
U.S. the USSR, the Arab states,
Israel and the PLO, Gratz said
Austria has in the past favored
this concept. He said Austria was
not concerned about any one
particular group's participation,
but viewed the conference as a
means to break the impasse in
the Arab-Israeli dispute.
Asked about what one Jewish
leader described as the "cozy"
relationship between the PLO
and Austria, Gratz rejected the
term cozy to describe their rela-
tions. But he seemed to suggest
that the PLO has emerged as the
only viable representative of the
Palestinian people and should be
involved in negotiations.
BRONFMAN, at the conclu-
sion of the meeting, thanked
Gratz for his views on the Middle
East, but noted that he disagreed
with the Austrian leader on his
views toward the establishment
of a Palestinian state. According
to Bronfman, the Camp David
process with its outline for a plan
granting five-year autonomy is
the "only way to peace."
One Jewish leader raised the
topic of Austrian anti-Semitism.
Gratz noted that a recently
concluded scientific survey said
that some 20 to 25 percent of
Austrian youths have anti-
Semitic views. He noted that
many of those youth in this
category came from communities
where there are few, if any, Jews.
Leon Zelman, the director of
the Jewish Welcome Service,
noted that Austria has begun an
intensive educational effort to
offset anti-Semitic sentiments in
Austria. He pointed out that
more than 360,000 Austrian
students last year visited the
Mauthausen concentration camp.
Book Fair Bigoted?
International Book Fair in
Frankfurt has produced a
complaint of discrimination
against Israel and charges
that the Soviet Union was
using the event to dis-
seminate anti-Semitic
The complaint arose from the
omission of Israel from a large
sign naming the 61 countries
which have joint national exhibi-
tions. The name of Israel was
added after repeated protests. A
spokesman for the Book Fair told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that the omission was the result
of a simple mistake and had no
political implications.
M. BIALA, of Israel's
Ministry of Commerce and
Industry which sponsors the
Israeli national exhibition, said
he had protested several times to
the Book Fair management but
received no explanation. A record
92 countries are participating in
this year's Fair, 61 of them dis-
playing their books in various
categories in joint national exhi-
The Soviet Union was accused
of featuring anti-Israel
propaganda at its national stand,
of a nature that comes clow to
being anti-Semitic.

A Rabbi
The following is brought to our
readers by the South County
Rabbinical Association. If there
are topics you would like our
Rabbis to discuss, please submit
them to The Floridian.
Rabbi D.Agler

We all know that assimilation is one of the greatest problems that
faces the American Jweish community, but it seems that many are not
fully aware of the problem until a child comes home with an intended
spouse and the possibility that the grandchildren may not be Jewish
Anguished are the voices of the parents, "How can we keep our
grandchildren from being lost to Judaism?" "How can we keep our
son from turning his back on his heritage?" But it is much, much too
late. The question needed to have been asked long ago, when the child
was entering religious school or becoming bar-bat mitzvah, at the very
latest when he-she was being confirmed. Then there were answers,
then there was help. Then there was a chance to create a future Jewish
family! But who asks then? Religious school parents ask about car-
pools. Bar-bat mitzvah parents want to know how long the lessons last
and how many aliyahs there are. Confirmation parents want to know
who is taking care of the flowers and invitations.
I*m still waiting to hear, as are colleagues who've been around a
lot longer than I, "Rabbi, how can we help make sure that after the
reception and party are over, our child will be true to bis faith and his
people for the rest of his life?"
It is difficult to think of a more important question upon which
we can have a more profound effect. It is more important than the
State of Israel, more important than the Jews of the Soviet Union,
certainly more important than the frothings of anti-Semites. Because!
no matter what happens on those admittedly important issues, it will
ultimately mean little if there is no Jewish future in this country, if our
children and grandchildren care little or nothing about those issues.
The challenge we face now that the holidays are concluding, is to
insure that there will be an Ameican Jewish future. The task at hand is
to insure that Boca Raton will be remembered by future generations,
not as the final departure point from the Jewish path, but as a shining
center, a local Jerusalem, or at least a Tiberias or a Hebron, or a Safed,
a thriving locus of Jewish learning and commitment, a place to which
future generations will point and say, "I owe my Jewish identity to
my grandparents, who immigrated to Boca Raton from the 'cold cruel
North' way back in the early 1980's and they founded, in that land of
alligators, golf courses, and microchips, one of the greatest Jewish
centers of the Diaspora."
And their friends will say, "Hey, I know a little about Jewish
history. Didn't your people do that stuff wherever they ended up, in
New York, in Baltimore, in Chicago, and for that matter in Vilna
Warsaw and Provence, Spain, Alexandria and Babylonia?" And the
answer will be, "Yeah, I guess they did." And the reply wul be, "You
know, you're lucky to have roots like that. That's pretty neat." And
the answer will be, "Yea, pretty neat." It is by no means an in-
conceivable scenario.
But the alternative is no less inconceivable. "Yea, I had one Jew-
ish grandmother. Lived in south Florida somewhere. But, you know,
after she married my grandfather, that was pretty much the end of it."
So, which will it be? Whether we have school-age children
anymore or not, we owe it to our past, to our history, to our parents
and grandparents who lived and yes, died, for their Jewishness, to see
to it that Boca Raton does not become the last stop on the train.
The choice is up to us. The good news is that we can do it. But
each and every one of us is going to have to work for it.

Bnai Israel Gets
New Torah Scroll
The celebration of Simchat
Torah at Cong. B'nai Israel this
Friday (Oct. 19) will be enriched
with the dedication of a Torah
scroll donated by Paul and
Miriam Schneider.
The annual celebration of Sim-
chat Torah, immediately follow-
ing the festival of Sukkot, marks
the conclusion of the reading of
the weekly portions of the
Torah(the Pentateuch), and the
beginning of a new cycle of
weekly portion readings starting
again from Genesis. As part of
the celebration, the congregation
takes all its Torah scrolls in a
parade around the synagogue,
usually accompanied by singing
and dancing.
The Torah donated by the-
Schneiders comes to B'nai Israel
by way of St. Louis, Mo., where it
was originally donated to the
Jewish War Veterans Chapel by
the Schneider family in memory
of Sam Schneider, Paul's brother.
After the JWV sold their build-
ing in St. Louis, the scroll was
returned to the Schneiders.
This is the first Torah scroll for
the new Reform congregation,
which meets for services at the
Center for Group Counseling,
22445 Boca Rio Road. The Friday
evening service, including the
dedication and Simchat Torah
celebration, will begin at 8 p.m.

\Arabs Leave Assembly
Shamir Repeats Readiness to Exit Lebanon
(UJA) Deputy Premier
and Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir has reiterated
Israel's readiness to with-
draw all its forces in Leb-
anon, but he said the with-
drawal will take place only
[if security measures are es-
tablished to protect Israel's
northern border from ter-
rorist attacks.
Addressing the General As-
sembly, Shamir stated, "Let me
repeat, any people or state that is
interested in the evacuation of
the Israeli army from Lebanon
must see to it that the terrorist
organizations expelled from Leb-
anon by Israel do not return to
our borders to renew their at-
tacks. This is an essential condi-
tion for peace. Israel is ready to
cooperate in any serious effort
toward a fair solution to this
occupation of Lebanon as the
major obstacle toward a solution
in that country. He said that
Syria "destroyed" the agreement
reached between Lebanon and
Israel in May, 1983, "by the ap-
plication of sheer, brutal force."
He said the agreement was
designed to restore Lebanon's
Chief Rabbis Tell Reform
'I'm Okay, You're Okay'
rael's two Chief Rabbis appear to
be extending an olive branch to
Reform Judaism. "Reform Jews
are Jews, just like us," Rabbi
Avraham Shapira and Mordechai
Eliahu said in a joint interview
here with representatives of the
overseas Jewish media.
The Ashkenazic and Sephardic
Chief Rabbis denied that they, in
any way, "fail to recognize" the
Jewishness of Reform Jews. This
\ was a major departure from the
position held by many Orthodox
Jews here and abroad.
THE TWO Chief Rabbis also
contended that the controversial
"Who is a Jew?" issue was
"wrongly portrayed" as one of
"recognition or non-recognition"
of other Jews. The fact is, said
Shapira, the only issue at stake is
the conversion procedure
practiced by Reform rabbis.
"We do not interfere or com-
aent on these rabbis' activities in
any other areas. But in the
| matter of conversion, Jewry is
like a club. You cannot join
unless all the rest of the member -
ship agrees to the terms of your

Eliahu said he considered the
demand for pluaralism in conver-
sion as a contravention of the
spirit of unity. He likened that
spirit to the one which motivated
the creation of a national unity
government and stressed that it
required further strengthening in
face of troubled times.
they had petitioned the govern-
ment without success to
release 20 suspected members of
the Jewish terrorist underground
from custody to allow them to
spend the High Holidays with
their families.
According to the Chief Rabbis,
this was "in no way out of the
ordinary." They said they fre-
quently received appeals before
festivals from the families of
prisoners and always responded
by attempting to secure fur-
loughs for those in custody.
In this case, the suspects are
on trial and under remand. The
Chief Rabbis said they were told
that the chances of fulough were
slim. "But we do not accept this
distinction on moral grounds,"
Shapira said.
"Today, some 40,000 Syrian
troops occupy 65 percent of Leb-
anon and show no sign of any
intention to leave," Shamir said.
"The Lebanese government is
dominated by Syria and is not
capable of conducting free nego-
tiations" that would resolve its
problems with Israel.
"Obviously, Israel will ensure
its legitimate security needs and
make the necessary arrange-
ments in southern Lebanon to
protect the people of northern
Israel against any repetition of
the terrorist attacks of recent
AS FOR the overall solution of
the Middle East conflict, Shamir
noted that recently the idea of
convening an international con-
ference on the Mideast was "re-
surrected." He pointed out that
the idea is promoted by the
Soviet Union which "has no
diplomatic relations with Israel
and that recommends the partic-
ipation of a terrorist organiza-
tion," the PLO, in the conference.
Israel, Shamir declared, is
against such a conference be-
cause it "would strike a blow at

Help For
Widowed Persons
The South County Jewish
Family and Children's Service
has sent us the following:
Enclosed is a letter Jewish
Family and Children's Service
received from a member of its
Widowed Persons's Support
Group. Her letter eloquently
depicts the feelings of a widowed
person and describes the help she
received by participating in the
group. With her permission, we
are publishing this letter
Dear Jewish Family and
Children's Service,
I read your questionnaire, over
and over, and I truthfully cannot,
give you mini-answers to a very
complex situation.
The mind, and feelings,
compounded with emotions is
quite an equation, and at this
moment in time it is too
premature to honestly make any
statement, which may not be a
fair and just one.
It took a married lifetime to be
what we are and where we are at
and after an incident that
happens one day in your life
(called death), you have to stop -
because from that moment on.
you are changed and everything
in your life is no more the same.
Death, like a demolition ball,
destroyed the union of two who
built a lifetime as one in every
day of that lifetime and there you
are, like a zombie trembling
from the shock. You're a victim
of circumstances. One day, you
are a respected member of society
called "Mrs. so and so," and in an
unforseen moment you are
labeled "Widow so and so," but
that's just the beginning Your
whole life style is changed
that's a tough hurdle to jump.
You know, you have to sur-
vive, so you walk alone you eat
alone, you hear the empty silence
of your home and the night is the
most difficult of all. You have to
exert yourself make new
friends because your old (couple)
friends are indifferent every
waking moment of the future life
is change and new adjustments.
It isn't as if you are young and
flexible: you are now at a sat
stage of your life and words on
paper won't hack it. The healing
has to start from within one's self
and only time is the greatest
healer of all.
I hope I made myself clear.
Your sessions gave me a great
start of understanding.
I met some wonderful friends.
It was s special experience, but
too short.
Ida Shadrow
At this time, we are planning
another Widowed Person's
Support Group. The group is set
to begin Monday, Oct. 22.
Interested persons should call
Dena Feldman, LCSW, at 395-
national community to make the
war against terrorism one of its
major targets. "This is a war of
self-defense in its true sense, a
campaign that the free world
should undertake on behalf of its
peoples and the entire human
race," Shamir declared.
He said that Israel has been
waging an unrelenting war on
Arab terrorism. "The so-called
PLO, which had established its
own mini-terrorist state in Leb-
anon, from which it carried out
and assisted terrorist acts in five
continents, was expelled from
that country. But Israel cannot
be expected to shoulder alone the
burden of international terrorism.
Since we are all potential victims
of terror, we must fight it
together. If we do not, terrorism
will endanger our basic freedoms
and all the standards of civilized
behavior for which this organiza-
tion (the UN) stands."
SHAMIR SATO that Israel
has been calling repeatedly on
Jordan to join us in negotia-
tions for peace." He said that
Israel is interested in deepening
and strengthening its peace with
Egypt. But the Israeli diplomat
noted that reaching peace bet-
ween Israel and the Arabs must
be viewed in the context of the
realities in our region."
He pointed out that "In a few
weeks' bloodshed along the Iran-
Iraq border, more men and chil-
dren die than in all the Arab-
Israeli wars." But the UN is ob-
sessed with the Arab-Israel con-
flict and devotes a dispropor-
tionate amount of time to it, only
for the purpose of slandering
Israel, Shamir charged.
Shamir devoted the s opening
part of his speech to the plight of
Soviet, Syrian and Ethiopian
Jews. "The situation of Soviet
Jewry has recently taken a
definite turn for the worse,"
Shamir said, charging that
Soviet Jews are being denied
access to Jewish culture, are
harassed, and are denied human
"WE CALL upon the Soviet
government to change its policy
which is unjustifiable. The Soviet
Jews are not involved in any anti-
Soviet activity, nor are they
violating Soviet laws, or working
against Soviet interests. Their
only wish is to study their an-
cient culture and their national
language and to live as Jews in
their historic homeland. It should
be recalled that in front of this
very Assembly, official repre-
sentatives of the USSR have
declared that the Jewish people
have s right to a state of their
own. Soviet Jewry demands
nothing more than to exercise
this right," Shamir declared.
He said that the Jews of Syria
are being held hostage by the
Syrian regime that "refuses to
grant them basic human rights,
most important of which is the
right to emigrate and join their
brethen." He said Syrian Jewry
lives in a climate of terror.
In Ethiopia, the Jews struggle
to maintain their heritage and
culture, Shamir said, adding that
Israel hopes that the Ethiopian
government "will take all neces-
sary steps to protect and respect
their (the Jews) religious and cul-
tural rights and enable those who
so desire to be reunited with their
famines in their ancient home-
