Among such firms hard hit of

Histadrut's giant construction
in a suit over municipal and
county display of a creche
and a menorah in Chicago.
This suit, the AJCongress
hopes, will establish clear,
unambiguous guidelines on
government display of
religious symbols.
In one previous famous case,
that in Paw tucket, Rhode Island,
in 1984, a federal court did not
find that sponsorship of the creche
violated the principle of
"establishment of religion"
because it was part of a display
which included other, "secular"
symbols. The court then implied
that a creche alone would be a dif-
ferent issue.
In three other cases heard in
lower courts (Rhode Island.
Detroit and Scarsdale) the deci-
sions were divided: in two cases
the court ruled the creche was a
religious symbol (thus inap-
propriate for government to spon-
sor), while in one it permitted
sponsorship of the creche.
The AJCongress decided to pro-
ceed with the suit despite fears
that it will lead to "unpleasant
fallout" both from within the
Jewish community and fron non-
Jews, since the suit is equally
against the menorah symbol aa
well as the creche. Past efforts by
the Jewish community to prevent
the official display of religious
symbols (short of litigation) have
generated substantial anti-
Semitism and ill-feeling, without
accomplishing the purpose, accor-
ding to Theodore Mann,
AJCongress president. However,
while this litigation is more likely
to accomplish this purpose, the an-
ticipated increase in anti-Semitic
feelings "will not be substantial,"
he said.
The AJCongress feels that vin-
dication of the principle that
government must remain neutral
on religion is sufficiently impor-
tant for long -term interest* of the
Jewish community to justify the
slight risk of "short-term discom-
fort," which might result from
such a battle as in the Chicago
Federal Court.
The fight against government
display of the creche has been go-
ing on for years, outside the
courts. The Jewish community has
always contended that display of
the creche a sacred symbol of
Christianity representing the
birth of the Christians' messiah
establishes religion not only in the
technical sense referred to in the
constitution, but in a very prac-
tical sense.
While the display of the
Christmas tree and Santa Claua
with his reindeer may be argued
to represent secular symbols,
government display of the creche
tells the community that govern-
ment officially endorses the Chris-
tian symbol and, therefore. Chris-
tianity; and, conversely, that it
sees Jews and other non-
Christians as tolerated outsiders,
the AJCongress says. If the
Jewish community continues to
"accept the spread of government-
sponsored creches without acting,
it will be contributing to its own
political and psychological

Arms Sale Postponement Leaves Options Open
Senate Majority Leader
Robert Dole (R., Kan.) said
that Congress postponed
President Reagan s propos-
ed sale of arms to Jordan
until Mar. 1 to leave "all the
options open" and give the
Middle East peace process a
chance to work.
"If between now and Mar. 1
there is an honest effort by King
Hussein ... to sit down with the
Prime Minister (Shimon Peres of
Israel) and try to work out some
kind of agreement, then we
believe we will have a chance to
take another look," Dole told the
closing plenary of the 54th
General Assembly of the Council
of Jewish Federations (CJF) at
the Washington Hilton Hotel.
"THE ONE thing we did not
want to do is torpedo the peace
process," Dole stressed. "If there
is a glimmer of hope, as the Prime
Minister indicates, we want to en-
courage that hope. So when next
Mar. 1 comes, who knows. It may
be postponed again, we may
decide to reject it out of hand." He
added that "We thought the worst
thing we can do is approve such an
arms sale before we even have
On the peace process itself,
Samuel Lewis told the 3.200
delegates to the general Assembly
that when he left Israel last June
after serving as U.S. Ambassador
there for eight years, most
Israelis did not take the peace ef-
fort with Jordan seriously. But, he
added, when he returned there for
a visit earlier this month he found
"surprising readiness" by Israelis
to believe that "something might
just happen."
However. Lewis said, he does
not believe that negotiations bet-
ween Israel and Jordan are yet at
hand. "I'm not wildly optimistic
myself because I see the obstacles
on both the Arab and Israeli sides
as very great." he said. "But
there is something happening and
that something has given a new
sense of hope to a lot of Israelis."
LEWIS SAID he also found on
his visit that Israel is making pro-
gress in solving its economic dif-
ficulties. But, he said, this pro-
gress has caused problems of
deepening recession, unemploy-
ment, bankruptcy for many com-
panies and hardships for the
Israeli people. But, he said, the
Israeli people are accepting these
difficulties as necessary and if the
government can stick to its pie-
sent course, the measure will
Dole noted that there is a
"bipartisan." "deep" and
"unswerving" commitment in
Congress to do what is necessary
to keep Israel strong militarily
and economically. But he said
Israel's economic independence
depends in the long run on
building up its export industries
and he is proud of his efforts in
putting through the Free Trade
Agreement with Israel.
The Senate leader reiterated his
promise that the Senate will ratify
the Genocide Convention. He said
if it cannot be done in the few
weeks left to Congress before it
adjourns for the holidays, it will be
the first thing on the agenda when
the Senate returns in January.
DOLE ALSO said he welcomed
the summit conference this week
in Geneva between President
Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev because "you cannot
settle your differences without sit-
ting down with your adversaries."
But. he said, "if the Soviets are
serious about improving relations
with the U.S. there are three con-
crete steps they should take." He
said these were "resume
diplomatic relations with the
State of Israel, disavow the UN
resolution equating Zionism with
racism becasue it is an abomina-
tion, and let all Soviet Jews who
want to join their families in Israel

Australia and New Zealand are
countries which seem so far away
If we think of them at all. we con-
jure up images of kangaroos,
boomerangs, sheep herds, Maoris
and Aboriginals. Recently, New
Zealand has been in the news for
its insistence on keeping out
American warships that carry
nuclear weapons. Also, its

map when French agents bombed

protest against a French nuclear

Western values and have
therefore attracted Jewish im-
migration. In 1788, nine Jewish
convicts from England arrived in
Australia, and in 1840, three Jews
landed in New Zealand which had
been called "the Britain of the
South" by a British member of the
Montfiore family who visited New
Zealand in 1930.
Ever since, small numbers of
Jews have found their way to
Australia and New Zealand,
establishing vibrant Jewish com-
munities. The success of their in-
tegration into "Down Under" is
richly revealed by this anthology
of poems and short stories.
The publisher of this book lists it
aa the fourth in a series of contem-
porary Jewish writing. Preceding
it have been anthologies of Latin
American Jewish writing. South
African Jewish writing and con-
temporary Jewish voices.
the series contains short stories,
poems and memoirs. They attest
to the universality of the Jewish
experience even though they are
greatly uneven in quality. It is
hard to single out one item from
the 29 pieces in the book.
Hnwever. there is a special appeal
to Serge Liberman's short story,
"Drifting." which deals with a
father's rejection of a son who has
The rejection remains firm even
after the son's wife gives birth to
a child. The story evokes
memories of an earlier time in the
United States when intermar-
riage was considered a tragedy.
Similarly, other stories and poems
remind us of phases in American
Jewish history.
The anthology is evidence of
how far "wandering Jews" roam
and how they succeed in making a
life for themselves, even in
"Down Under."

West German-Israel
Relations Improving
projected visit of Israeli
Premier Shimon Peres here
at the beginnng of 1986
reflects steadily improved
relations between Israel and
West Germany, according
to aides of Chancellor
Helmut Kohl, who extended
the invitation to Peres dur-
ing a recent meeting bet-
ween the two leaders at UN
headquarters in New York.
Kohl's aides, trying to put
behind them Israeli irritation over
Bonn's vigorous condemnation of
the bombing of PLO headquarters
in Tunisia, pointed to the steady
progress in contacts between the
two nations since Kohl took of
fiece in 1982.
that Kohl had put an end to years
of misunderstandings and hesita-
tions that had characterized the
regime of former Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt, who had
demonstratively rejected an
Israeli invitation to visit
Bonn's apparent conciliatory at-
titude towards Israel emerged in
the wake of criticism within the
government over the initial West
(German reaction to the Tunis
raid. Several ministers said that
the vigorous condemnation by
Bonn was not consistent with its
pledges to fight international
The Ministers further pointed
out that PLO terrorists were
working together with both leftw-
ing so-called urban guerrillas as
well as neo-Nazi groups.
Peres will be the second Israeli
Prime Minister to visit Bonn. The
first was Yitzhak Rabin who was
here in 1975.
The Jewish community has
always bssn noted for its many
organisational forms. In 1918. the
Jewish Communal Register com-
piled a list of almost 8,700 Jewish
orgsnisstiona in New York City
alone. There are some who argue
that we have far too many
organizations, a number of which
duplicate each other.
A contrary view holds that hav-
a variety of Jewish organiza-
tions provides numerous oppor-
tunities for Jews to express their
Jewish identification through af-
filiating with organizations which
suit their needs.
One such organizational form
was the landsmanskaft a socie-
ty based on common geographical
residence in Eastern European
shtetlach. As the immigrant
population died off, this kind of
organization became extinct. The
author of this book has tried to
capture the essence of the land-
smaruhaft before it completely
HE CLAIMS that perhaps half
the two million Jews who landed
in New York between 1880 and
1923 belonged to a landsman&haft
at some point in their lives. Today,
these organizations which once
numbered some 1,500 have all but
faded from the scene. Most of to-
day's American Jews were born in
the United States, and they have
severed their relationship with the
culture of their forbears. The
needs which were fulfilled by the
landxmanshajl are either no
longer pertinent or have been
taken over by other institutions.
For example, an important func-
tion of the landsmanskaft was to
aid new immigrants. For those
few Jewish immigrants who still
come here, there are no profes
sional welfare organizations The
burial responsibilities of the Inwl-
smnnshart are now carried by
commercial funeral directors and
profit-making cemeteries. Main-
taining nostalgic memories of the
gatstl has no significance for those
who never lived in a shtetl.
What Weisser has done in his
book is to trace the rise and fall of
the landsmanxhuft. He makes
good use of the minutes of a cou-
ple of them to tell their story, and
he traces their roots in Hasten)
Kuropean iktetlach. He also gives
a good account of (aads*ums&q/t
efforts to help their relatives ami
friends after the two world wars.
UNLIKE MANY organizations
in both the general and the Jewish
community which persist in sur-
viving even though their original
function has either disappeared or
changed, the landsmanshaji were
born, developed and have now just
about died off. The book is a useful
record of their history.

Yoel DeMalach, Negev Researcher Wins Israel Prize
Yoel DeMalach. 61. of Kibbutz
gevivim. was awarded the Israel
Pfia for his studies of crop
I development in arid areas. This is
the first time the prize has been
yarded for Negev research. The
j brael Prize is the highest govern-
mental prize, awarded annually to
12honorees in scientific, cultural,
I ind social fields.
DeMalach teaches at Ben-
Gurion I'niversity of the Negev.
I md has written many articles on
arid land agriculture which have
been used l>y the UN. the U.S..
and many other countries. He is
also in charge of the Experimental
Station at the Ramat HaNegev
Affricultural Station, in t>c?r
' Sheva. Funding for projects there
| are supported by the Jewish Na-
i tional Fund, the agency responsi-
ble for afforestation and land
I development in Israel.
Ramat HaNegev Agricultural
I Station, founded in 1981 on 150
acres, is the site of some of the
world's most advanced
agricultural experiments.
DeMalach asserted that "in Isrel
and the Negev, where fertile soil
and 'sweet' water sources are
rapidly being depleted, new
agricultural methods must be
found to exploit fully the existing
marginal soil and brackish (salty)
water. Also, the findings will
directly affect undeveloped
regions throughout the world
where encroaching deserts and
populations are growing faster
than agricultural production."
DeMalach's experiments focus
on the growth of many varieties of
food products in the Ramat
HaNegev area, in Israel's central-
western Negev. He has created
new types of onions, and has prov-
ed that cotton can be grown on
sand irrigated with brackish
water. He is also doing research
on the growth of new types of
peanuts, broccoli, asparagus,
grapes, grains and other products,
all in the harsh desert climate.
Fully committed to the area,
DeMalach's goal is to develop new
means of production for the
Negev, where plans call for the
settlement of 200,000 more people
and 150 rural settlements.
He is one of the original
members of Kibbutz Revivim.
Yoel DeMalach

Revivim was founded in 1948 as

N.Y. Police Form Special Force
To Study Jewish Store Havoc
NEW YORK (JTA) The New York Police Depart-
ment has established a special task force to investigate the
smashing, last weekend, of the windows of 13 Jewish-
owned or Jewish-identified stores in Boro Park, the Jewish
Community Relations Council announced. The task force,
which will work exclusively on the case around the clock,
will draw detectives from the Bias Squad and from
Brooklyn South, where it will be headquartered.
AT THE SAME TIME, the JCRC announced it is of-
fering a $4,000 reward for information leading to the arrest
and conviction of the perpetrators of the crime. This sup-
plements the $1,000 reward posted by Assemblyman Dov
Hilkind, who represents the Boro Park district, and the
13th Street Merchants Association's President, Mendy
Klin and Vice President, Joseph Goldstein. The vandalism
occurred along a 10-block stretch of that avenue, the
neighborhood's main shopping center.
Hilkind, a Boro Park resident, said earlier this week
that he was convinced the vandalism was "well planned"
and "methodical." He said he agreed with the theory that
the vandalism may have been timed to coincide with the
47th anniversary of KristallnadU, the Night of Broken
Glass pogrom in Germany the night of November 8-9, 1938.

Mubarak's Remark
Is Worth Recalling
Israel's Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
was obviously speaking for the Unity
Government when he told a session of the
CJF General Assembly in Washington that
Israel is prepared for direct negotiations
with Jordan providing King Hussein would
bend on his view of which Palestinians were
appropriate to take part in the negotiations.
Given that the King would bend, said
Rabin, Israel might even be amenable to
peace talks under the auspices of an "inter-
national umbrella."
What Rabin had in mind was the Palestine
Liberation Organization as inappropriate
representatives of Palestinian aspirations.
In this sense, he told the CJF Assembly
nothing new. Nor should it be surprising to
Rabin or to any other Israeli in the Unity
Government that King Hussein would not be
likely to accede to the suggestion.
It makes us feel mighty uncomfortable,
but we are reminded of some commentary
on this same issue by Egypt's President
Mubarak during his visit to the United
States last March. What Mubarak said was
that it would be unrealistic to look for
Palestinians who are not in their heart of
hearts PLO.
What Arab Isn't PLO ?
We do not mean that most Palestinians
are PLO in their allegiance to Yasir Arafat
or even to Arafat's credo rooted in the need
to destroy the existence of Israel. But they
are mainly PLO in their allegiance to the
principle of establishing yet another Palesti-
nian state carved out of the Israeli hide.
That this truth lies at the heart of
Mubarak's observation should make Rabin's
comment before the CJF Assembly an even
more chilling one. Egypt and Israel post-
Camp David are not what Camp David envi-
sioned as a relationship between the two
signatory nations.
This would be the same given appropriate
"Palestinian" representation in bilateral
talks involving Jordan and Israel. From a
West Bank Jordanian "confederation"
would be a hop, skip and jump to a new
Palestinian state.
Is itpossible that Mr. Rabin does not know
this? Or that those whom he represents do
not know this either?

Out of Town Upon Request
For 54 years I was only able to
receive an affirmation as to the
word, but Uever the recipe. When
my mother died, there was no one
else left in my family to ask about
these wonderful little confections
that I remembered from
childhood, and I began to think
that the word 'pogatchel' was a
carryover from a childhood
dream. And then you came along
and again I know that it was not a
hallucination. Thank you!
And now for a bit of "hutzpah."
I also remember a delicious cold
stood to affirm the
response of our chief delegate,
Daniel Patrick Moynihan: 'The
United States rises to declare
before the General Assembly of
the United Nations and before the
world that it does not
acknowledge, it will never abide
by, it will never acquiesce in this
infamous act.' "
Reagan added. "The U.S.,
under the leadership of three dif-
ferent Presidents, has remained
true to that pledge. Today. I am
proud to reaffirm that promise
and further, to pledge my support
for the removal of this blot from
the UN record."
PRESIDENT Chaim Herzog of
Israel, who in 1975 was Israel's
Ambassador to the UN, also sent
a message to the conference. Her-
zog said, "My thoughts go back to-
day to the historic debate in the
UN on the infamous resolution on
Zionism by the General Assembly.
The issue before the Assembly
was neither Israel nor Zionism. It
was the continued existence of the
UN which had been dragged to its
lowest point of discredit by a coali-
tion of despots and racists."
Herzog's message continued:
"A great evil was done to the
Jewish people at that time but, as
in the past, so now, too, the op-
pressors of our people pass into
oblivion while we, the Jewish peo-
ple, which has survived them all.
will survive the shameful exhibi-
tion in the UN and the proponents
of the resolution."
The resolution equating Zionism
with racism was supported by 72
countries, most of them Arab,
Third World or Soviet bloc coun-
tries. It was opposed by 35, main-
ly Western democracies. There
were 32 abstentions.
MOYNIHAN recalled that
before the resolution was adopted,
the governments of Israel and the
U.S. were not fully aware of the
danger of the resolution and its
consequences. He charged that
since the resolution was passed.

as unler gescklugen kraut.' It was
made from cabbage and sour
cream or milk but in any case
this term, or name has been as
elusive as pogatchel. Do you think
your reference source might also
know of this?

ed for the one confirmation of a
long lost name that I must, for the
third time repeat, thank you so

ject and the motives behind the
thinking of the Soviets, the Arab
and non-aligned countries which
supported the anti-Israel, anti-
Jewish resolution. Moynihan said,
however, that with "patience and
tenacity" the resolution can even-
tually be expunged.
Vernon Walters, the current
U.S. Ambassador to the UN. told
the conference: "The U.S. govern
ment vigorously condemns I'N
General Assembly Resolution
3379 which declared that Zionism
is a form of racism. President
Ronald Reagan referred to
Resolution 3379 as 'the total in-
version of morality' in his speech
at the UN 40th anniversary com-
memoration on October 24.
Walters noted that "The l.S.
Mission speaks out forcefully
against this statement and the evil
it embodies and will continue todo
so as long as necessary."
KIRKPATRICK declared: It
is a short step from the proposi-
tion that Zionism-is-racism to the
proposition that tin State of
Israel is based on iggrtmoi''
She added, "In IN language, the

L#on Klinghoffer died because
he was a Jew and an American.
The terrorists did not inquire if
Klinghoffer was a Zionist, or even
a committed Jew. They consider
every Jew, by virtue of being
Jewish, a threat to their own
murderous cause. Ever since the
hijackings started in 1970, Jewish
passengers have been segregated
and especially mistreated. But
Why does Qaddafi, seeking to
strike back for the Israeli bomb-
ing of the PLO headquarters, call
for a massacre of the Jews of
Tunisia^ Why did Hitler order "a
firal solution of the Jewish pro-
blem" (... the killing of all the
Jews) rather than the death of the
observant/or Orthodox/or
secular/or whatever Jews actually
opposed his programs? Why did
he not span the patriotic German
lews or the German Jewish war
rani who in 1934 expressed
their solidarity with his plans for a
restored Germany? If anti-
Semitea are motivated by pure
hatred, what do they see in nil
Jews that evokes that hatred?

President Chaim Henog of

ing its AshktiiazK-Sephardi split
and believes thai peace between
Jews and Arabs will yet come; but
he is deeply concerned that the
divisions l>etween secular and
religious in Israel are sharpening
with no cure in sight. Rabbi J.
David Rleich. a respected right
wing Orthodox scholar, has
already proposed that the way to
end the 'Who is a Jew" con-
troversy is to recognize Reform
converts in Israel as members
"f a separate religion (Reform) -
just as Israel recognizes Christian
and Islamic communities as
distinct religions which set their
own standards.

Judaism was given to a family,
not just an individual. The Torah
- the Jewish covenant of redemp-
bon presents itself not as a pure

Peoples way of life. This means
t the system allows for a full

be a carrier of the message. That
is why the Talmud says: "A Jew
even if he sins, remains a Jew."
As long as the family survives,
the message survives. Therefore,
anyone who insures the survival
of the family is properly seen as a
carrier of the message (i.e., one
who insures its transmission) even
if that person or group do not
believe in the specifics of Jewish
faith. After the Holocaust, when
faith in G-d and the Jewish cove-
nant were deeply challenged, if
not overthrown, hundreds of
thousands of secular Israelis risk-
ed and gave their lives (alongside
religious) to create the State of
Israel. The reestablishment of
Jewry and Judaism in Israel is the
best proof that the covenant and
hope in redemption is still live.
The positive impact of the work of
atheistic Zionist movements on
believers has !>een enormous.
Furthermore, in a crisis such
as the Six Day War or Yom Kip-
pur War the family connection
comes out powerfully evoking
an extraordinary response from
people who have never admitted
(or even have denied) their deep
linkage to Jewiah faith and
destiny. This confirms the suspi
don that the antj-Senu'tee or the
Russians or terrorists have had all
along believed thai all Jews are in
this together whatever their of-
ficial position.
Does this mean that the ter-
rorist are justified in the attack
on Innocent' .lews No their
attack on Jewiah bystanders and
other civilians is as evil as their at-
tacks on Zionists and committed
Jews. But their insight of shared
fate is correct.
. The failure of understanding is
on the part of those Jews who
deny their people, hoping to
'escape into the royal household'
(see Esther 4, 13) from Jewish
fate. And the deepest failure is of
committed Jews who let their
disagreements over principles and
tactics lead to fundamental
separation from other Jews.
In the late 1950s, Rabbi Joseph
B. Soloveitchik suggested that all
Jews share the brit goral. the
covenant of fate i.e.. every
Jew's life is on the line. Soloveit-
chik suggested that this is the fun-
damental level of inclusion in the
covenant. Sharing the fate of all
Jews means the Jew is committed
and is fully within the covenant of
Israel. The next level up, says
Solobeitchik. is the 'covenant of
destiny,' i.e. shared values, obser-
vances, meanings. He conceded
that all Jews do not share that
level of involvement but insisted
that it was the task of Orthodox
Jews to reach out out of basic
oneness and shared fate and
convince the others.
Orthodoxy has failed to spell out
this common legitimacy of all
Jews and Jewish movements
which share Jewish fate as the
starting point for its policies. Or-
thodoxy's rulings and tactics must
be re-cast predicated on the
covenantal legitimacy of other
groups as well as individuals.
Then it can make whatever proper
criticisms it wants to make of non-
Orthodoxy's departures from
halacha. Operating on this
premise, it would have the chance
to win others over or meet them
halfway with integrity. Similarly,
non-Orthodox groups have to
translate into policy choices this
legitimacy of shared fate. Affir
mations of pluralism must be turn-
ed into concrete choices bespeak
bog the commitment not to let
disagreements on observance and
values separata Jewish groups
from each other.
In the crisis before the deetroc
tion, Jeremiah suggested. "Look
at Kittim (CyprtlB, Italy. Cn
and send to Kedar (Arabia) and
consider it diligently" (Jeremiah
_. 10). Lei organised, committed
.lews learn to treat each Others'
Seriousness of purpose with at
least as much respect as the ter-
rorists and international anti-
Semites do. There are those who
would object that Jews should not
be defined by Hitler or by
enemies. But, in fact, the enemies'
view corresponds to a fundamen-
tal teaching of the Jewish tradi-
tion, one that is being overlooked
in the current rush to separation.
It is time for repentance from ail
the groups.

Premier Shimon Peres and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, leader of Likud,
met last Friday to work out
a compromise to end the
week-long coalition crisis
precipitated by Ariel
Sharon's harsh public attack
on Peres and his policies.
The crisis, with the potential to
destroy the fragile Labor-Likud
unity government, peaked Thurs-
day when Peres flatly rejected an
equivocal apology offered by
Sharon and told a specially con-
vened Cabinet meeting that he in-
tended to dismiss the outspoken
Likud hawk who serves as
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry. But Peres refrained at the
last minute from handling Sharon
a formal letter of dismissal.
THE MOOD here was one of
relief and optimism as the cliff
hanger aspects of the situation
faded. Political pundits believe the
moment hail passed for Peres to
dismiss Sharon, and it was now a
matter of working out an accep-
table formula to allow both men to
retreat from the brink without los-
ing face. Which one of them
emerged the winner in the con
t'ronLation will probably Ik- a sub
JOCI of debate for weeks or months
to come.
PerSS, addressing the Labor
I'arty Center in Tel Aviv Thurs
day. said two conditions had to be
met tO end the crisis
One was a coalition agreement
recognizing the exclusive
prerogative of the Prime Minister
to dismiss a minister of any party.
As the agreement now stands,
both Peres and Shamir, who ia
scheduled to take over the office
of Prime Minister next summer,
waived the right to dismiss a
minister of the other's party.
THE SECOND condition
demanded by Peres was a public-
retraction by Sharon of specific
charges he levelled against Peres
in his speech to Herat colleagues
in Haifa.
These were that Peres has been
conducting secret negotiations
with Jordan and the Palestinians
for the pest seven months without
the Cabinet's knowledge; that he
has agreed to try to include Syria;
and thst he has agreed to an inter-
national conference.
That "the contempt and
cynicism" of the Labor Party has
cost much blood and its policies, it
carried out. will bring even more
bloodshed; that the government is
being "led by the nose" without
knowing where it is going; that
Peres refused to say explicitly
that the Palestine Liberation
Organization will not be included
in the negotiations and is trying to
avoid such a commitment.
That the peace with Egypt is en-
dangered because of the "weak
policy" pursued by the govern
ment and the Prime Minister; that
Sharon encountered "cynicism"
when he demanded "that we
should notify Jordan that there
would be no negotiations until the
PLO headquarters office is remov-
ed from Amman."
PERES TOLD the Labor Party
meeting that when Sharon made
that demand in the Inner Cabinet
no one supported it. and it was
dropped. Sharon must
acknowledge that, Peres said. He
stressed that Israel has not had
any negotiations with Syria on the
Golan Heights or on any other

dicating there was no immediate

Anshei Emuna at 7:30 p.m.
Heading the list of honorees are
Sol Lapidus, chairman of Kings
Point West, and Joe Master, who
chaired Kings Point East, despite
having suffered a stroke. Under
their leadership, the 200 or so
volunteers succeeded in raising
well over $100,000, increasing by
15 percent the amount raised the
previous year.
Sol Lapidus, who owned a
supermarket in New Jersey
before retiring to Florida in 1975,
was active in community affairs in
Plainfield. N.J. and headed suc-
cessful fund drives for the
volunteer firemen there. Since
coming here he has been active in
Temple Emeth and has served on
the board for the past nine years.
He started as a volunteer for the
Federation/UJA Campaign sue
years ago, then served as area
chairman and later co-chairman
for the entire development.
Kings Point, Sol points out, is
the largest campaign in the Fami-
ly Division, and covers 7600
households. This makes it a great
task, and the volunteers who
tackle such a job as well as the
contributors truly deserve the
community's thanks for their
Joe Master pointed out that the
real success of the past campaigns
was in the increasing number of
people involved, and in getting
4,622 gifts at Kings Point.
Although he will not be able to
chair the campaign again this
year, Joe felt that this growth
must continue with greater ef-
forts to reach those who did not
make any gifts in previous years.
The Community Theme adopted
this year, Lapidus felt, will help
get the Federation message
across to many more people, that
the campaign is one of the most
unifying factors for the Jewish
People, helping Israel, World
Jewry and the local Jewish com-
munity all at the same time.
Gladys Weinshank, member of
the Federation's Board and ex-
ecutive committee, will be guest
speaker at the program on Thurs-
day. Gladys, who hails from
Chicago, served for many years
both as a professional and a lay
leader in Federation work and
leadership development.
There will be no admission
charge; refreshments will be serv-
ed and no solicitation of funds will
take place. The entire community
is invited to honor these workers,
who truly deserve it.

The new Young Leadership
Division's first program, a
cocktail party held at the Atrium
Cafe, drew some 140 participants
last week. Leaders of the division
are convinced the great interest
shown will grow and the YLD will
rapidly draw larger numbers of
young people to its ranks and
Gary Scharf. chairman of the
Social Committee responsible for
the program, said his committee
will plan many more such events
in the coming months.
The program was led by division
vice chairman Craig Richman,
who compared the event with the
recent Palm Beach party for

ing most
15 people, includ-
of the president* or
Sheading officers from the
various Jewish organizations in
fcntury Village, took part in a
program to honor the volunteers
for the pttl year's Federa-
tion/UJA Campaign.
On the same occasion, they were
introduced to the new Community
Theme (Into the 21st Century -
One Dream. One People, One
Destiny), welcomed the new chair-
man for 'Ins year's campaign,
Charles Seibel, and heard an in-
spiring address by Rabbi Bruce
I Warshal, the Federation's ex-
I ecutive director.
As the Campaign in Century
Village developed over the past
fel \>'nr<. under Dr. Hyman
Henkin as chairman, more
volunteers came forward each
I year and the amount raised grew.
Charles Seibel described the
potential in Century Village and
the steps he would like to take to
increase the work done in behalf
of both Israel and the rapidly
growing local community.
Benjamin Hussin. chairman of
the Family Division, explained the
significance of the Community
Theme and told the participants
how and why he derived great
pleasure from his task as chair-
man, thanks to the devotion they
have shown to the cause of the
Rabbi Warshal thanked the
volunteers for the role they played
in the past year in saving even
more lives of Ethiopian Jews than
this community had undertaken;
he then asked "now that we have
saved their lives, can we abandon
them?" The task of absorbing
them into Israeli society, no less
expensive, just cannot fall on the
alreadv overburdened shoulders
of the Israelis
And, he added, the Jewish con-
cept of TZEDAKA is unlike the
gentiles' idea of charity, based on
strictly voluntary generosity it
is a matter of "justice" and
obligation on each and every Jew.
The Jewish concept, therefore, en-
tirely justifies even dictates
starting the work with your own,
then expanding out to others.
Seibel announced the formation
of a Campaign cabinet, consisting
of Norman Fialkow. Al Fine.
Alvin Greenfield, Dr. Hyman
Henkin. Izadoreand Pearl Levine.
Edythe Rosen, and Lou Zweiback.
Rabbi Donald Grain delivered the
invocation. Iz Levine led the sing-
ing of the national anthem and

has become her custom, took care
of the refreshments.

Valuation of Charitable Gifts
Marvin Kiraner
Our last column discussed the
tax benefits of donating ap-
preciated property to a charitable
organization. To summarize,
when a Donor donates ap-
preciated property to a charitable
organization, he/she is entitled to
a charitable deduction for the fair
market value of the property At
the same time, the Donor saves
the capital gains tax that be would
have to pay to the IRS if the pro-
perty were sold. This week's col
umn will discuss the valuation of
such property for tax purposes.
The Donor of property to a
charity must value the property to
determine the amount of the
charitable deduction allowed. Ob-
viously, if a Donor makes a gift of
stocks or bonds that are traded on
a national exchange, it is easy to
determine the value of the gift
merely by checking the financial
section of the newspaper on the
day the gift was made. However,
the issue of valuation becomes im-
portant when other types of pro-
perty are donated.
For example, if a Donor wants
to donate some stock in a closely
held corporation, the value of the
corporation itself would have to be
determined. Such valuations can
be made by determining the value
of the assets of the corporation.
Another way to value the stock is
to analyze the profit history of the
corporation. Business appraisers
and accountants are usually called
in to assist with such appraisals. If
the Donor donates the stock prior
to selling the entire business, the
\alue of the gift would be the por-
tmri of the sale price attributable
to those shares donated. For ex-
ample, assume a Donor donates 1 I
percent of all of his corporations
Stock to chanty. If the business j|
then sold for $100,000, the value
of the gift would be $10,000 (i.e.
10 percent of $100,000).
In the case of the donation of
tangible property, such as real
estate, or personal property, such
as works of art, a person ex-
perienced in appraising such pro-
perty should be called in to ap-
praise the gift value.
Recently, Congress enacted a
law which requires an appraisal to
be attached to the tax return of a
Donor when the claimed fair
market value of the gift exceeds
certain limits. In the case of the
stock of a closely held corporation
such an appraisal must be includ
ed with the lax return U" the claim
ed value of the gift is over
$10,000. In the case of the dona-
tion of tangible property (i.e. real
estate or other personal property)
the appraisal must be included if
the claimed value of the gift is
more than $5,000.
Such appraisals must be made
by appraisers qualified to appraise
the property in question. (A real
estate appraiser would not qualify
to do an appraisal for a work of
art I The appraiser must be in-
dependent and unrelated to the
In addition, the appraisal must
contain information concerning
the purchase price of the property
originally paid by the Donor and
the date it was acquired by the
Donor. The appraisal must be
signed by the appraiser. Finally,
the appraiser cannot be paid a fee
based on a percentage of the value
of the property.
It is important to note that the
charitable organization receiving
the donation must tell the IRS if it
sells the donated property within
two (2) years of its receipt. Part of
the information the charity must
give the IRS is the sale price of
the property. This is a way for the
IRS to determine whether the
original appraised value was too
high. For example, assume a
Donor makes a gift of a work of
art to a charity, and claims that it
is worth $10,000. If the charity
sells it within two years for
$2,000, it must notify the IRS of
this transaction. In such a case,
this would likely trigger an audit
of the Donor's tax return by the
IRS. The IRS would likely
challenge the original $10,000
reported as a charitable deduction
by the* Donor.
While the donations of property
to charity can create significant
tax benefits to Donors, it is impor-
tant to remember that the tax
laws require a good faith effort to
determine the tue fair market
value of the property donated. A
large percentage of the disputes
between the IRS and taxpayers
concerns the fair market value of
property donated to charities. The
IRS can assess penalties and in-
terest in addition to the extra
taxes that are due when there is a
finding that a taxpayer placed too
high a value on property donated
to charity

Avital Tried To Deliver
Letter to Gorbachev at Summit
Avital Shcharanaky, wife of im-
prisoned Soviet Jewish activist
Anatoly Shcharanaky, tried to
deliver a letter to Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev during his
summit meeting with President
Reagan in Geneva this week, ap-
pealing for the release of her
Mrs. Shcharanaky, who began a
three-day vigil across from the
Soviet Embassy here to draw at-
tention to her husband'8 plight
and that of other Soviet Jews,
tried unsuccessfully to present her
letter to the Embassy. She drop-
ped it through the iron gate after
a voice on the Embassy PA
system rejected her request to
submit it personally.
The letter, addressed to Gor-
bachev said: "The release of
Anatoly Shcharansky, Mr.
Secretary General, would signal a
new and human approach to the
problem of the last remnant of
Eastern European Jewry trapped
within the borders of the Soviet
Union. Anything less. Mr. Gor
bachev. would be a betrayal of
those basic human values on
which all civilization is baaed."
The Embassy vigil was part of
an 11-day campaign that began
with a sit-in in front of the Soviet
Mission to the United Nations and
was to end at the Reagan
Gorbachev summit in Geneva this
week. Mrs. Shcharanaky is one of
the numerous Soviet Jewish ac-
tivists who see the summit as a
critical opportunity to press the
case of refuseniks and Prisoners
of Conscience.
She had been hoping for a White
House meeting with Reagan
before he left for the summit.
Jewish Substance Abuse
Topic Of Workshop
There are no statistics
available on the extent of
alcohol or drug addiction
among Jews in this area, but
there is plenty of evidence
that the problem exists.
But among Jews, in par-
ticular, there is still a stigma
attached to the problem,
and a tremendous amount of
denial which makes it
harder to deal with.
The South County Jewish
Family Service, jointly with the
Federation's Community Rela-
tions Council and Hillel recently
held a workshop with the
presidents and leaders of the ma-
jor Jewish organizations in the
area to learn about the problem
and the steps to be taken when it
is encountered.
Judy Gomberg-Meade, a
therapist in the field of addiction
who also has personal experience
in recovering from addiction, and
four other recovering individuals
took part in the workshop. The
main problem, they pointed out, is
that too many people fail to realize
that alcoholism and drug addic-
tion are diseases which can be
dealt with physiological pro-
blems and not moral ones.
Moreover, both those who suffer
from the disease, their families
and close ones, and the communi-
ty leaders, tend to deny the pro-
blem exists.
Lots of alcoholics and addicts
"function" but usually at the
expense of messing up their lives
or families. By definition, said
Gomberg-Meade, a person has a
problem if any part of their life or
family's life is messed up, not just
overtly where others can see it.
JACS, the Jewish Alcoholics
and Chemically dependent and
Significant others, has been
established to attempt to provide
a Jewish setting for dealing with
the problem. While there is no
distinction between Jewish and
non-Jewish alcoholics, groups
such as Alcoholics Anonymous
and similar support groups usual-
ly meet in churches; the fact that
not one synagogue in South
Florida has such support group
meetings is evidence of that same
Yet. over 100 Jews have joined
JACS in the past few months
since the group organized its first
workshop in Tamarac including
some from the South County area.
At the South Councy workshop,
the nearly 50 participants broke
into two discussion groups, each
headed by a facilitator (RoKoh
F* and Dr Sandy Porterf^
the Jewish Family Service) with
the two facilitators reporting on
their group's discussion and Judv
Gomberg-Meade, summing up
Rabbi Donald Crain provided uV
perspective of the Jewish
JACS aim is to Jewish
alcoholics and drug addicts with
other Jewishish contacts jn fad
it has established a "hotline" for
sufferers to contact other Jewish
recovering persons with whom
they might feel more comfortable
It is engaging in a community
outreach program, providing
speakers on the subject, in an ef-
fort to educate people (especially
community leaders) and get the
problem "out of the closet" so
more people will be willing to help
(as well as be helped). Judy
Gomberg-Meade is chairperson,
and may be reached at 395-6750.

C reating the Eternal Gift
for our Community
As an ancient people approaching the 21st century, we are evermore aware and
proud of belonging to an eternal people with one dream and one destiny.
Whether it has been the little blue "pushke" box or "Operations Moses," our
tradition of Tzedakah, of caring for others, has been the foundation of our
To ensure our future and to reach our dreams the South County Jewish Federa-
tion established the Jewish Community Foundation in 1984. The Foundation of-
fers each of us ways to fufill our ancient tradition of Tzedakah. Establishing an
endowment fund an Eternal Gift is the lasting gift, the ultimate Tzedakah.
The Eternal Gift is the endowment fund that keeps alive Jewish tradition,
meets unforeseen emergencies, and nourishes a broad range of innovative
Now as the South County Jewish communities continue their growth we are
embarking on a new program of personalized endowment opportunities which
provide for the long range needs of our community. Never before has Federation
given our donors the opportunity to make restricted gifts.
Such gifts provide the means for those of you with specific philanthropic in-
terests to endow programs and facilities in your own name, or in honor or
memory of a loved one. With an endowment gift you can create a legacy, the Eter-
nal Gift, which will live beyond your lifetime, and carry your name well into the
21st century, helping to fulfill our people's dreams.
You can participate in these programs in any of the following ways:
1. Through a gift now of cash, securities or property.
2. By testamentary gifts provided in your will.
3. Through the establishment of a charitable trust that will provide income to
you and your spouse for life.
These and other forms of gifts such as insurance, art and real estate have
specific tax advantages to you. For example, a gift to the Foundation now will
result in a current income tax deduction and will also remove the value of the gift
from your estate. Gifts of appreciated property can save you capital gains taxes
and also provide a current income tax deduction.
We urge you to contact your personal financial adviser regarding the ways in
which you can participate in our programs. Our first listing of Eternal Gifts
follows this open letter on another page. Please feel free to call the Foundation of-
fice (368-2737) and speak to Arthur Jaffe, director, with any questions you may

The Community
An Introduction
The Jewish Community Foundation of South
County is the endowment development program of
the South County Jewish Federation. It was
established to meet the challenges and needs of the
rapidly growing South County Jewish com-
munities of Boca Raton, Del ray Beach and
Highland Beach. The leadership of the Federation
acted to create an endowment program recogniz-
ing that there are members of the Jewish com-
munity who desire to combine their philanthropic
interests with their need to accomplish certain tax
and estate planning goals. The Foundation is an
excellent vehicle for the accomplishment of these
Foundation funds are put to work in South Coun-
ty, throughout the United States and abroad to
help us strengthen the local Jewish community and
lend support to Israel. The Jewish Community
Foundation provides long-term security for the
Jewish community.
The primary purposes of the Foundation are:
A. To serve as a means by which members of the
Jewish community can fulfill their charitable in-
terests beyond their participation in the annual
B. To improve the quality of Jewish communal
life by providing seed money for innovative pro-
grams, research and study projects, and other ac-
tivities which cannot be embraced by the regular
budgets for the Federation or beneficiary
C. To serve as a reserve fund to meet emergency
needs of the South County Jewish Community or
Jewish communities elsewhere, to provide
methods by which donors can perpetuate their sup-
port for the Federation in general and for specified
charitable, educational or communal institutions.
D. To become a unifying force within the Jewish
community enabling agencies and individuals to
work together and participate in the Foundation
It makes grants annually in the fields of health.
education, urban affairs, religion, social services.
youth, aging and other areas of human need. The
Foundation examines each request and monitors
the grants which have been awarded.
The Internal Revenue Service recognizes endow-
ment development programs as valid and ap-
propriate components of charitable organizations.
Tax benefits for contributions to such programs
have grown over the years and a donor's participa-
tion can provide substantial tax advantages and
varied opportunities for giving.
The IRS, in a letter of determination, has con-
firmed the South County Jewish Federation, the
Foundation's parent, is an organization to whom
contributions are deductible. The letter on file in
the Foundation's office serves as evidence to con-
tributors of the deducibility of their contributions.
Under the auspices of the Federation and a com-
mittee comprised of outstanding community
leaders, the Jewish Community Foundation is ad-
ministered with expert guidance. Attorneys, ac-
countants, and other professionals are associated
with the Foundation to assist and provide counsel.
The Foundation employs a full time director with a
background in Jewish communal service and
All administrative and clerical functions
associated with endowments are handled by the
Foundation and efforts are made to keep
operating costs as low as possible. The Founda-
tion's funds are carefully invested to yield max-
imum returns consistent with a prudent policy.
Endowment bequests to the Jewish Community
Foundation carry on the traditions of our faith and
assure the future of Jewish institutions with fun-
ding to meet new needs, carry out special pro-
grams and cope with crisis. Your participation as a
donor to the Jewish Community Foundation will
help perpetuate these endeavors. We welcome the
f>>oortunity to work with you to achieve your per-
lal objectives while strengthening the Jewish

by the Chaplaincy Service to the hospitals and nursing
homes. More than 8 out of 10 Jews who are in hospitals
or nursing homes are unaffiliated and have no rabbi to
meet their spiritual needs.

services or the enrichment of existing programs is an act
reflecting the highest level of Tzedakah.

tradition and ethics within the context of s modern all-
day educational system.
Quality education is the best investment we can make
in the Jewish community. Every child from every

Begin Said To Suffer
From Alzheimer's Disease
LONDON (JTA) Former Israeli Prime Minister,
Menachem Begin, who has been living as a recluse since his
abrupt retirement two years ago, is believed to be suffering
from Alzheimer's disease.
The suggestion that Begin is suffering from it, current
among responsible medical circles, provides the first credi-
ble explanation of why Israel's charismatic leader, who
revelled in politics, suddenly and irrevocably withdrew
from the world at the age of 70.
UNTIL NOW his family and his closest medical and
political advisers have kept the precise nature of his condi-
tion a deep secret, fostering speculation that he retired in a
mixture of despair over the costly Israeli intervention in
Lebanon and the death of his beloved wife Aliza in 1982.
His resignation, which caused consternation among his
supporters, also sparked protracted speculation that this
was only a strategic withdrawal, like that staged in the ear-
ly 1950 s by David Ben-Gurion, and that he might suddenly
make a dramatic comeback.
It was also rumored for a time that he was engaged in
writing a modern history of the Jewish people.
BUT IN RETROSPECT, these hypotheses must now
be regarded as incompatible with an illness which doctors
say is associated with diffuse degenration of the brain.
Recently, Begin made one of his very rare public ap-
pearances in Jerusalem when he attended a memorial ser-
vice at his wife's graveside. Closely hemmed in by his
children, he looked a frail, aged and broken man.
However, the disease would appear to be still in its ear-
ly stages, judging by a report only four months ago that the
former Prime Minister still avidly reads the daily press, is
in touch with political events and retains his sharp,
penetrating expression.

for someone else to blame. There
may be hostility toward the physi
cian, nurses, persons surrounding
the illness or anyone who seem-
ingly could have prevented the
death. These feelings of anger
must be expressed.
The Widowed Persons Support
Group allows the expression of
feelings to be shared by others
who are also experiencing these
universal stages of the grief pro-
cess. Through this group, the
members find comfort in realizing
that their reactions are "normal"
and common to most widowed
people. The group begins to join
together to help themselves in the
difficult work of grief.
Jewish Family Service offers
the opportunity for people to find
s link with others in dealing with
their problems. Other groups have
been formed, which include sup-
port and information for: stress

Anyone interested in par-

its summer programs, open to
BBYO members, and to all Jewish
teens in eighth through twelfth
BBYO offers a wide range of
summer programs. International
Leadership Training Conference
(ILTC) teaches BBYOers to
become strong leaders in their
communities by holding
workshops on issues of Jewish
concern, decision-making
seminars, and principles of
democratic leadership at B'nai
B'rith Perlman Camp in Starlight,
Pennsylvania. Another excellent
tool for leadership development is
the Chapter Leadership Training
Conference at B'nai B'rith Beber
Camp in Mukwonago, Wisconsin,
where teens from the entire order
learn how to effectively conduct
programs and meetings. At these
two summer programs, teens
develop those skills which help
determine the future leadership of
the Jewish community.
Israel the spiritual and
cultural center of Jewish life is
experienced first-hand by BBYO
members who participate in the
Israel Summer Institute (ISI). A
six week, active hike through our
people's history is one of BBYO's
most important programs. Dif- .
fen-nt tracks of ISI suit the needs
of our diverse teen population:
OM stresses archaeological study;
another stresses Bible study and
tour; and one concentrates on
Ulpan (Hebrew language). All ISI
participants get the feel for Israel
from the northernmost border at
Metullah to the southern tip of the
Negev, and all spend time at the
B'nai B'rith moshav, Moledet. In
addition, participants live for a
while with members of Noar Le

An intensive program focusing

eventually into their own families
at a time when assimilation
threatens our future.
The summer comes to a close at
International Convention at
Perlman Camp, where members
from all over the world make
policies and plan programs for the
entire order. It's a chance for
teens to experience the thrill of
