Israel Enjoys Zero Inflation
Last Two Weeks of January
Anatoly Sharansky

On Flight to Israel
Anatoly Sharansky is a free
man. Sharansky came into
inflation rate was zero in the last
two weeks of January, and the
estimate of about 1.5 percent for
the full month would be the
smallest rise of the consumer
price index in eight years. That
and other good economic news
just released by the Central
Bureau of Statistics has put
Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai
in a strong position for his upcom-
ing contract negotiations with
He said that with inflation vir-
tually non-existent there is no
need to abandon the wage/price
freeze which he credited for en-
ding the spiral of devaluation and
price hikes. Modai urged the trade
union federation not to demand
wage increases but rather main-
tain the present situation in which
consumer buying power is
The successes of the economic
austerity programs is threatened
however by the Cabinet's decision
to increase the defense budget by
$37 million. Modai warned that if
this trend continues it would undo
what has been accomplished so far
in setting the economy right.
Israel's trade deficit shrank by
16.4 percent last month compared
to the same amount a year ago, an
improvement attributed to the
combined effects of plunging oil
prices, a weaker U.S. dollar, and a
rise in Israel's military exports.
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry Ariel Sharon expressed
satisfaction with the latest figures
that showed a 16 percent increase
of industrial exports.
They totalled $517 million last
month, a 2.6 percent increase over
January, 1985. Imports amounted
to $593 million, 3.5 percent higher
than the same month last year but
the net deficit was reduced to
$176 million. The export of metal
and electronic products which are
generally of a military nature, was
up 26 percent last month. Textile
exports rose by 22 percent.
Israel's UN Envoy in Geneva
Denounces Election of Ex-Nazi
GENEVA (JTA) The election of Herman Klenner,
a Nazi party memebr during World War II, as vice presi-
dent of the United Nations Human Rights Commission
headquarters here, was forcefully denounced by Israel's
Ambassador to the UN in Geneva, Efraim Dubek. Klenner
heads the East German delegation to the Human Rights
Commission annual conference, which opened last week.
DUBEK CALLED his election by the conference a
demonstration of the "political cynicism and moral
degradation prevailing in this international body." He add-
ed that the elevation of an ex-Nazi to the vice presidency of
the Commission "questions the credibility and efficacy of
the Commission's work in the field of human rights."
The Israeli envoy noted that Klenner ioined the Nazi
party on April 20,1944 and was issued card No. 97-56-141.
Dubek found it morally objectionable in 1984 that a card-
holding Nazi should head his country's delegation to the
Human Rights conference.
this city early last week by
walking across the Glienicke
Bridge which links West
Berlin with Potsdam in East
Germany. Sharansky's walk
into freedom came as part
of an exchange of prisoners
between American and
Soviet authorities involving
undercover agents.
But the United States made it
crystal clear Monday that it would
have no part of the exchange
unless Sharansky were permitted
to walk into West Berlin all by
himself, thus emphasizing that he,
himself, was not a spy and that his
arrival in the free world was
unrelated to the undercover agent
exchange. The Soviets apparently
SHARANSKY was quickly
escorted to the waiting Mercedes
Benz of the U.S. Ambassador and
then whisked away to the airport,
where he boarded a plane for
Frankfurt and his wife, Avital,
who came to Frankfurt from Tel
Aviv to await his arrival. From
there, they boarded a plane to
Some ten minutes later, the
undercover agent exchange occur-
red at the center of the Glienicke
Bridge, and those freed boarded
buses waiting for them.
Sharansky was arrested nine
years ago and served eight years
of a 13-yeax sentence for allegedly
spying for the United States.
Negotiations for the swap have
been underway for the better part
of a year and were expedited at
the Geneva summit meeting bet-
ween President Reagan and
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
last November.
THERE WERE also reports
Tuesday that Sharansky's
mother, Ida Milgrom, who lives in
Moscow, will be allowed to leave
the Soviet Union at a later date to
join her son in Israel.
Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv
was meanwhile besieged by scores
of organizations which wanted to
participate in the arrival
ceremonies. Authorities there
hoped to keep the reception low
key because of Sharansky's
delicate health. As late as Mon-
day, there was confusion as to the
whereabouts of Avital Sharansky,
whose worldwide campaign for
the release of her husband is now
ended. Friends of the Sharanskys
continued to say that she was still
in Israel and would not leave for
West Berlin until she had word
that her husband was definitely
being freed. Earlier reports said
that she had already left for
In Bonn, a report declared that
Avital Sharansky was already
there and that journalists and
television camera crews were try-
ing to track her down in the divid-
ed city.
born on Jan. 20, 1948 in Moscow.
A computer technologist, he was
arrested on March 15, 1977 and
tried one year later on July 14.
Following the 1974 denial of his
emigration request on the
grounds that "it is against state
Anatoly Sharansky
interests," Sharansky was the
subject of continuous harassment,
surveillance and interrogations.
At times, up to eight KGB agents
trailed him.
He met Avital in 1973 outside
the Moscow Synagogue. They
were married despite difficulty in
obtaining a rabbi and attempts by
the authorities at blocking the
union. One day after their wed-
ding, Mrs. Sharansky emigrated
to Israel. In March, 1975, after a
series of arrests, Sharansky was
informed by the KGB: "Your
destiny is in our hands. You saw
what happened to your friends.
No one in the West is interested in
you and what you are doing here,
and nobody will say a word in the
entire world if there is one more

The Middle East peace process was the main topic covered in the
recent Bonn talks between Israel's Prime Minister Shimon Peres
(left) and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl. Peres was only the se-
cond Israeli head of government to pay the Federal Republic of
Germany an official visit. The first was Yitzhak Rabin.
Syrian Gov't. Refuses To Extradite Brunner to West Germany
BONN (JTA) Officials here report
that the Syrian government has refused a
West German request for the extradition of
Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner who has
been living in Damascus at least since 1958.
Brunner, widely described as "the right
hand" of Adolf Eichmann, is held responsi-
ble for the deportation of more than 100,000
Jews to death camps. According to
testimony by survivors, he personally
murdered at least one Jew on a transport
from Vienna to Riga.
WALTER GRIEBEL, the prosecutor
general in Frankfurt, said the Syrian
authorities refused to confirm published
newspaper reports that Brunner was inter-
viewed in Damascus with their approval. He
said additional material is being studied for
another official extradition request. But the
Bonn government is not known to be apply-
ing any pressure on Syria toward that end.
Brunner, now 74, has abandoned his alias,
"Dr. Georg Fischer," and is now living open-
ly under his own name, sources here said.
They said his exact location in Damascus has
been documented in West Germany since
June 22, 1960.

A Rabbi
The following is brought to our
readers by the South County Rab-
binical Association. If there are
topics you would like our Rabbis to
discuss, -please submit them to The
Anahei Emuna Orthodox
"So teach us to number
our days that we may acquire a
heart of wisdom." So prayed
Moses, the man of G-d, a semineal
prayer recited by the traditional
Jew on each Sabbath, holiday and
holy day.
How much more meaningful
and enriched our lives would be if
we understood properly the value
of time as underscored by Moses
our Teacher. Too often time is
what we want most but what
we use worst. Again and again we
are cautioned not to waste time
because "That's the stuff life's
made of." We are enjoined to use
time wisely. We are admonished
that yesterday cannot be recalled;
tomorrow cannot be assured; only
today is ours, which if we pro-
crastinate, we lose. And what we
lose is lost forever.
The older we get, the more we
value time. We realize that time
rushes by like a restless stream.
How. wise was the savant who
observed, "Lost, yesterday,
somewhere between sunrise and
sunset, two golden hours, each set
with sixty diamond minutes. No
reward is offered, for they are
gone forever."
Each new day of the year
beckons us to intensify our faith in
G-d and Torah, to hope for the
future, and to quest for the sanc-
tities of our peerless tradition. It
calls us to live today, to create to-
day, to produce and grow today. It
pleads with us not to postpone liv-
ing; that when we make a daily
withdrawal from the ever-
decreasing bank of time, that we
use this most precious commodity
wisely and creatively.
Today is sufficient for
The burdens we must bear;
Today is ours, to live, to
Our wealth to share.
Tomorrow never comes to
Yesterday is gone.
Therefore, today is aU the
We have to build upon.
Tomorrow is far away
As Yesterday, it seemed
So wake up, make full use
Do the things you dreamed.

Oil Plunge
"Massive output by producing
countries in the face of slack de-
mand" and a mild winter in the
northern hemisphere contributed
to a fall in oil prices "to levels not
seen since 1979" (Associated
Press, Jan. 22).
The major U.S. domestic-grade
of crude, West Texas in-
termediate, sold for $20.90 a bar-
rel, and Great Britain's North Sea
cnide recovered 60 cents a barrel
to reach $20.30 (by way of com-
parison, the price of oil in 1980
went as high as $34 a barrel).
The Saudis, who had kept prices
up by producing at a 20-year low,
"are now making up for lost time
and pumping far more oil than
their agreed (OPEC) rate," AP
quoted Britain's Financial Times
as saying. "As a result, the oil
price is indeed falling out of
bed this is partly, then, a
struggle, for power" among oil

student of human nature has writ-
ten directly to this theme:
"I believe that only one person
in a thousand knows the trick ol
really living in the present. Most
of us spend fifty-nine minutes an
hour living in the past, with regret
for lost joys, or shame for things
badly done both utterly useless
and weakening or in a future, that
we either long for or dread. Yet,
the past is gone beyond prayer,
and every minute we spend in the
vain effort to anticipate the future
is a moment lost. There is only one
world, the world pressing against
you at this minute. There is only
one minute in which you are alive,
this minute here and now. The
only way to live is by accepting
each minute as an unrepeatable
miracle. Which is exactly what it
is... a Miracle and
The recognition that each day is
another gift from G-d, that each
day is an occasion for joy and
gladness, can make us aware of
the extraordinary privilege of be-
ing alive right here and now. This
awareness and cognizance can in-
spire us to live each day more fully
and more fruitfully. Yesterday is a
cancelled check, and tomorrow is
a promissory note. Only today is
cash at hand for us to spend. To-
day is not a parenthesis between
yesterday and tomorow. Good
things can happen, do happen, and
should happen today, if we make
sure that they happen ... if we
learn how to live today.
As we grow older and as the
years fleet by, may we grasp, ever
more intensely the sage and
sagacious words of the Psalmist.

made, let us rejoice and be glad in

will entertain. Mr. Sassi has ap-
peared all over the United States
and Canada.

Do Not Say:
'We Didn't Know'
What is outside of the walls, the
confines of the area in which we
are so fortunate to live. What is
happening in the community,
beyond Boca Greens?
"We didn't know" was the
phrase used by the many people in
variouis communities during the
Holocaust, to explain their in-
nocence of what was happening in
their midst, the annihilation of six
million Jewish people.
Until this group of men,
residents of Boca Greens, finished
our mini-missions, we too could
say "we didn't know."
Now we know of the extensive
activities that the South County
Jewish Federation is involved
with and responsible for.
We left the Boca Greens
clubhouse at 7:50 a.m. accom-
panied by Marianne Bobick, presi-
dent of South County Jewish
Federation, and Miriam Spitz,
Campaign Associate. Our first
stop was the Jewish Community
Day School where we witnessed a
flag-raising ceremony. To see the
beautiful Jewish children pledging
allegiance to the American flag
and then singing Hatikva was a
very moving experience. Burt
Lowlicht, director of the Day
School, gave us an enlightening
tour of the various classrooms
while the children were in the
midst of their normal studies.
Gnu* next stop was the Baer
Jewish Campus, where we were
amazed to see the amount of ac-
tivity that was taking place, in the
constant effort to respond to the
needs of our Jewish community.
A visit to the Kosher Konnec-
tion was scheduled where we were
greeted warmly by the people who
go there for their daily hot meal
and social programs. This is one of
the many services that South
County Jewish Federation offers
to the elderly, the lonely, and
neglected people here in our
Rabbi Joseph Pollack met us at
the Delray Community Hospital.
He told us of the needs of patients
in hospitals, residents in nursing
homes and "shut-ins." Having
people visit them and assure them
they are not forgotten, providing
them with TLC (tender, loving
concern) is in keeping with Jewish
tradition of loving kindness.
This is a short summary of what
was an emotional, informative, in-
teresting and most satisfying five
hours. I urge everyone to make
this trip, so that in the future you
won't say, "I didn't know."

U.S. Jewry Lacks Real Power
stern warning about the future of
American Jewry to 300 par-
ticipants in a lecture series at Con-
gregation Anshei Emuna recent-
ly, Soviet Jewry activist, Rabbi
Avrom Weiss further cautioned
they can no longer blind
themselves to the condition of the
Jewish people.
Rabbi Weiss, of Yeshiva Univer-
sity, insisted that American Jewry
is rapidly "falling" and will soon
be unrecognizable because of two
major issues confronting them:
the spiritual future of the
American Jewish community, and
the political strength of the Jewish
community in America.
Politically, the Rabbi drew a
bleak picture for U.S. Jewry.
"Our power is lessening here," he
said. "We are not in control."
How did this happen in
America? Weiss acknowledged
that the U.S. has been wonderful
to Jews. However, he explained,
while Jews in America have the
power to make decisions, they do
not have the power to carry out
these decisions. Whereas in exile
for thousands of years, this power
was almost immutable for Jews,
Weiss pointed out that "the
religion of America is America.
There is a separation of church
and state ... we do not have
sovereignty here."
He cited the numerous ex-
amples of recalcitrant husbands
who will not grant their civilly-
divorced wives a Jewish "get."
The courts db not have the power
to force that issue here, he
Weiss called the self-governing
Jewish bodies which once existed
in Diaspora "states within
states." Precisely because this
situation does not exist in
America, he cautioned, we are fac-
ing a challenge we've never faced
before "the challenge of open
arms, of freedom the kiss of
Tackling the issue of the
spiritual future of Jews in
America, Weiss defined the pro-
blem with what he called "the sim-
ple facts."
The facts concerned intermar-
riage and assimilation
'frightening statistics.
He alluded to intermarriage
figures predicting SO percent of
college-age students to marry in
the 1980's will intermarry. In
Denver, it was found that 92.6
percent of young adults between
the ages of ~5 and 36
Another study determined that
only 50 percent of American Jews
are affiliated today with any
synagogues or Jewish
In education, studies revealed
that only 40 percent of Jewish
children receive any form of
Jewish education. "If you're not

Herzl Stamp Gives Russians
Hives, They Say Nyet'
JERUSALEM Hundreds of
letters mailed by Israelis to their
relatives in the Soviet Union
recently have been returned to
Israel because the Soviet
authorites object to the stamp on
the envelopes.
The overseas mail stamp bears
the likeness of Theodor Herzl,
founder of modern Zionism. The
Russians, unwilling to have his
picture distributed among Soviet
Jews, have not allowed the letters
to reach their destination and are
returning them, overprinted with
the words "addressee unknown."
charitable instincts in support of
Israel. The audience learned that
only 18 percent of Jews had
visited Israel during their
lifetimes. And, during the 1973
Yom Kippur war, which Weiss
viewed as Israel's most dangerous
war, only 17 percent of American
Jews gave $10 or more in aid.
"We can no longer delude
ourselves," said Weiss, "That is
the definition of the problem of
the future spiritual movement of
Jews in the United States.
On the other hand, anti-
Semitism was not a problem for
the Rabbi. He admitted there
were pockets of anti-Semitism in
the country which must be
reacted to with strength "but
on the whole there's no anti-
Semitism in the country." He felt
the high rate of intermarriage
vividly demonstrated this point. A
high intermarriage rate cannot
exist amidst anti-Semitism, he

and assimilation factors, Weiss
said, there has been a significant
shift to the right in the Jewish
community. "No one is building

we are building the walls around
He said Jews are entrenching
themselves, spending more on
themselves and ". in 50 years
the only Jews left will be Yeshiva
students from Lakewood and the
Hassidim from Boro Park."
His own approach is an opposite
one. "Move out, open your arms,

Rabbi Weiss called for a change
in Jewish priorities before Jews
vanish from the American scene.
He implored for greater spending
so the "best minds" can go into
Jewish education.
In continuing his own efforts
"to turn things around," Weiss
said that he has an obligation to
talk politics. He asked his au-
dience to consider the numerous
set-backs they have suffered from
the government in recent years.
"How is Washington dealing
with the Soviet Jewry issue?" he
asked. The Soviets want

so when the Jackson-Vanick
Amendment was introduced,
Washington opened the doors to
them, he said. He further reported
that there are now American
trucks in Siberia, two banks in the
U.S. are lending the Soviets $600
million and recently, 300
Americans went to the Soviet
Union and signed a letter pro-
testing against the link between
trade and emigration.
Weiss indicated that there has
been a weakening on the part of
the Administration to press for
Jewish rights in the Soviet Union
because they are not feeling
pressure from the American
grass-roots community.
He went on to offer historical
examples of American waffiing-
through to the pressure applied on
Israel to get out of Beirut in 1982.
Domestically, he spoke of the
many arms debates lost in Con-
gress through the AWACs
debate in 1981.
How can you be in control,
Weiss demanded, when the
American government voted just
last year that a creche is part of
American tradition and history?
"The essential power of the
Jewish people is not based in the
United States, but in Eretz

Akiva Lewinsky, treasurer
of the Jewish Agency and
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion, said that the Jewish
Agency should be
"prepared" for the possibili-
ty of large numbers of im-
migrants from distressed
Jewish communities around
the world coming to Israel.
Speaking at a press con-
ference at Jewish Agency head-
quarters here, Lewinsky declined
to specify from which countries
such aliya might come. But he
hinted at the Soviet Union when
he said, "Jews are behind all kinds
of curtains, and these curtains
might be lifted. Relationships bet-
ween countries are changing. The
situation is not frozen." Asked if
Israel and the Jewish Agency are
prepared to absorb, say, 50,000
Russian Jews, he said that such
immigration would contribute to
Israel's economy and that world
Jewry would no doubt come for-
ward to assist in the absorption in
the event of such large-scale
Questioned about immigration
from Ethiopia to complement the
10,000 Ethiopian Jews airlifted to
Israel more than a year ago,
Lewinsky said there are presently
about 8,000 Jews left behind in
Ethiopia. He said their situation
has worsened since the airlift
because they have been subjected
to all manner of maltreatment.
LEWINSKY also said, in reply
to a question, that he expects
more than 1,000 new immigrants
from South Africa in the coming
year. He noted that last year only
300 South African Jews im-
migrated to Israel. He did not say
on what he based his prediction
for this year.
Lewinsky's press conference
was called to announce the
meeting of the Jewish Agency's
Board of Governors which will be
held in New York Feb. 18-19 with
the participation of some 200 pro-
minent Jewish leaders from all
over the world.
Following the Board of Gover-
nors meeting, Board members
and their staffs will participate in
Jewish Agency Week, a series of
visits to about 50 Jewish com-
munities in the U.S. and Canada.
Lewinsky said that the Board
will discuss a projected budget of
$381 million for the next year,, in
addition to the $48 million budget
for Project Renewal.

Preparing Children for the Birth
/ *J of a New Baby

(Adapted from Responsive

A new baby can bring dramatic
Change to a family of any size.

from before. They are likely to ex-
Brience a mixture of feelings, an-

Parents can do a lot to help ease
the family's adjustment and
prepare children for the arrival of
tieir new sister or brother.
Let your children know well
ead of time that you are going
have a baby. Children often
react to this news by thinking,
"Then what will happen to me?"
Not only young pre-schoolers, but
older children and teenagers as
well, have these fears and need
reassurance. It is good to tell each
child that they are loved for the
special person they are, and that
the baby will not take their place.
Parents could add that the baby is
lucky to be joining such a wonder-
ful family, and that it will be nice
for all of them to have another
special person belong.
If your child is not used to being
around babies, try to give him or
her some exposure. Point out
babies you see when out shopping,
or if you can, visit a friend who
has a new baby.
Make sure children have infor-
mation about how babies are born.
Children need accurate informa-
tion on a level they can unders-
tand not fantasies about storks.
They won't absorb everything im-
mediately, but gradually they will
liegin to sort out the facts and
understand childbirth.
Two fine books to share with
children are Making Babies: An
Open Family Book for Parents
and Children Together by Sara
Bonnet Stein, and Where Do
Babies Come From? by Margaret
Sheffield and Sheila Bewley.
It is important to include
children in the preparations for
the baby. Even a toddler can help
as you sort baby clothes and put
them in the dresser for instance.
Taking part in this way will help
your child feel that the baby will
be a new experience for the entire
family, not just a distraction for
mommy and daddy.

If possible, make all changes in
your child's routine before the
baby arrives. If a pre-schooler will
be starting nursery school, try
and have them begin before the
baby is born. This way your child
won't feel they are being sent
away to make room for someone
else at home. If the baby is going
to take over your toddler's crib,
move them to a bed several mon-
ths ahead of time so they would
not feel that their things are being
snatched away for the baby.
The children should be prepared
for their mother's absence. Let
them know that she will be going
to the hospital to give birth to the
baby. Explain that she will be
away for a few days, but then she
will come back home.
Some hospitals now allow
children in the maternity ward.
Find out your hospital's policy and
let your child know ahead of time
if they will be able to visit their
mother and the new baby.
When it is time for the baby to
be born, try to arrange for your
children to be cared for by so-
meone they know well. Also try to
maintain their usual activities
school, nursery school, after
school program so they won't
feel that everything is stopping
for this baby.
Special attention is helpful.
When the mother calls from the
hospital, she could tell her child
where a surprise is hidden in the
house for instance. She could men-
tion a story she is looking forward
to reading with them, or she may
say "I sure miss our special bed-
time talks." This way the child
won't feel so neglected by their
mother. The child will see mom

has a role, and can provide the
children at home with extra atten-
tion while their mother's in the

The above was told to a recent
"missionaire" at a visit to the
Kosher Konnection at Congrega-

formerly been alone and isolated
in her apartment until she learned
she could join others like herself,

one may partake of the many ac-

"How wonderful to be with
others like myself," said this char-
ming lady, "to be with my friends,

Why A Synagogue?
Why Belong? Why Give?
Prim* Timers Committee
of The Levis J.C.C.
presents the
Many Jews you know seldom
enter a Synagogue and seem to be
quite happy and content. Satur-
day mornings they're off to the
golf course or visiting a shopping
plaza. They laugh and play and
lead a pleasant life without any
dietary restrictions or religious
restraints. They appear to have no
need for a synagogue and they
don't seem to miss a thing in their
life of religious indifference.
The only time such people have
need of a synagogue is when death
strikes a member of their family,
when with penitence and humility
they seek the "proper" Jewish
ritual and a Rabbi's paid rhetoric
to eulogize their deceased.
How do we rationalize this
behavior in the light of religious
consciousness? How do we justify
the veracity of the words in our
daily Yigdal "The righteous are
justly rewarded according to their
deeds and the wicked are punish-
ed according to the evil they have
wrought," when we know that
mostly the contrary is true?
Of course, all conditions of life
are not comprehensible to us nor
explainable. But we strive for a
quality of life that gives us con-
tentment and fulfillment: a well-
balanced lifestyle that satisfies
our basic needs for moral and
aesthetic expression in the
framework of our social
The synagogue is the safe haven
from wandering; it is the sanc-
tuary of our spiritual longings, the
anchor to permanence and
perpetuity. The synagogue is the
harbor of our Torah. For without
the Torah we are the most in-
significant of the Nations. The
synagogue is our emblem of
belonging, our link to a most col-
orful past. It is our source of
The catastrophe that befell the
German Jews of pre-Hitler days is
a bitter lesson in the denial of
identity. To belong to a synagogue
is to identify with a culture that
provides a spiritual enrichment,
an emotional ease, a physical well-
being. It offers good fellowship
and a social bond that is mean-
ingful and enduring.
Belonging to a synagogue is a
prerequisite to intellectual maturi-
ty, an affirmation of faith in Man
and in O-d. Through affiliation
with a synagogue is expressed
solidarity with the moral con-
cepts, the heritage of the People
who covenanted to uphold the
precepts of justice, mercy and a
respect for life. Belonging to a
synagogue is to join the oldest
Club in the world, where member-
ship is a commitment to the
sacred vows of humanity; that you
are not alone when confronted
with the evil forces around you.
By belonging you have joined a
minyart the symbol of unified
strength whose collective voice
is not only for penitent prayer but
in bold petition for rightful deeds.
Your Synagogue is the bastion
of the oldest Constitution, handed
down by Moses, of unchanging
principles of divine inspiration,
commandments to eternal truths
for all time.
Ram at Gan Bomb
people were slightly injured wher.
an explosive charge went off in
the main street in Ramat Gan
Tuesday morning. The bomb had
been placed in a garbage can near
a bus stop in busy Rehov Jabotin
sky. Police detained some 30 per-
sons for questioning, but most
were released immediately.
The synagogue is the gateway
to the treasures of the past. On
Saturday mornings, in the weekly
Sidrah you review the fascinating
tales of the Patriarchs, the com-
pendium of Jewish lore, the detail-
ed adventures of the Forty Years'
wanderings; you read the stirring
oratory of the Prophets who
guarded the moral code and
rebuked kings. In the synagogue
the Bet Midrash essentially
the House of Learning, you are in
communion with the greatest
minds and teachings of our sages,
the illustrious Tannaim and the
Amoraim, the compilers of the
Mishna and recorders into script
from the Torah She'baa I Peh (Oral
Law) the fragile memory banks.
You meditate on the grandeur
of our Kings and the heroic battles
for survival and you stand in awe
at our martyred heroes.
The Synagogue offers enjoy-
ment of profound aesthetic value,
of spiritual exultation in the en-
chanting cantonal melodies of our
liturgy or in the soul-stirring
TefUUu of our Holy Days and
Festivals. And the Rabbi at the
helm, scholar, diplomat, teacher,
is the guiding light to teach and
enlighten and to maintain balance
in this little realm of congrega-
tional hierarchy.
Why a synagogue? It is your link
with history. It is your social iden-
tification. It is your passport to
being a complete "mentsh"!

Prisoner of Conscience in the
Soviet I'liion."
In 1977, Sharansky filed suit,
along with fellow activist Vladimir
Slepak, and claimed Soviet Jews
were defamed as a result of two
broadcasts of the anti-Semitic
television documentary, "Buyers
of Souls."
THE SOVIET newspaper.
Izveatia, accused Sharansky of
working for the CIA. Shortly
thereafter, in March 1977, he was
arrested by the Soviet secret
police and detained in Moscow's
Lefortovo prison until his trial in
July, 1978. Convicted on charges
of "treason" and "anti-Soviet
agitation and propaganda," he
was sentenced to 13 years in
prison and labor camps, and
began his term at Chistopol
Throughout his imprisonment,
Sharansky was held incom-
municado, unable to see or speak
with anyone except the KGB. He
was also not permitted legal
counsel, despite relentless efforts
by his family to secure an attorney
for him. His plight drew interna-
tional attention and became a
focal point of U.S.-Soviet rela-
tions; numerous senators, con-
gressmen and then-President Jim-
my Carter voiced their assurances
of Sharansky's innocence. Colum-
bia University President William
McGill headed a special Ad Hoc
Commission on Justice for Anato-
ly Sharansky, which convened in
October, 1977, to hear testimony
in Sharansky's defense.
March, 1980 marked Sharan-
sky's transfer from Chistopol to
Perm Labor Camp, where he was
destined to serve the second phase
of his 13-year sentence. In April,
his mother, Ida Milgrom, and his
brother, Leonid, were permitted
to visit with him for 24 hours
the first time since his initial im-
prisonment in 1978 that he was
allowed visitors. The following
September, they were again
granted a visitation permit, for a
brief period and under heavy
IN A LATE-September letter
to Mrs. Milgrom from his Perm
location, Sharansky made
reference to his ill-health. More
specifically, he complained of
severe stomach and back pains.
The new year, 1981, brought a
worsening state of health.
Two weeks of solitary confine-
ment filled February, 1981.
Sharansky was further burdened
with the harsh conditions and
minimal food rations and exercise
characteristic of such detainment.
In addition, all of his scheduled
1981 meetings with family
members were abruptly cancelled,
and his letter-writing allotment
was cut back to one letter every
two moaths from an original
allowance of two letters every one
Sharansky relayed details of his
deteriorating health in cor-
respondence to Mrs. Milgrom.
Among his complaints were con-
tinued severe headaches and in-
adequate medical attention.

Students of Earl Everett's

their own rockets as part of their
program on rocketry. "The model
rocketry program was developed
to provide a safe method for
youn^- people to build their own
flying model rockets" said
In this course students are in-
troduced to rocket construction
techniques, solid fuel rocket
engine assembly, tracking and
recovery systems and launching
techniques. "Model rocketry is a
safe, and enjoyable way to teach
students about space flight," com-
mented Everett.
The students showed great en-
thusiasm about their rocket
launch. Groups of students con-

Nearly all of the rockets were suc-
