Medical Association Report Shocks Professional Community
In an apparent violation of
its standard format, the Journal
of the American Medical Associa-
tion last week published a Mayo
Clinic Report on the death of
Jesus, which local Jewish physi-
cians say has no educational value
at ail.
The report elicited such shock
and disappointment within the
professional community here that
Rabbi Bruce Warshal, director of
the South County Jewish Federa-
tion responded with a nine-page
letter directed to the editor of the
prestigious medical publication.
Basically, the article submitted
by a Mayo Clinic pathologist, a
clinic medical graphics artist and
a Minnesota pastor, offered a
graphically explicit accounting of
the torture and death of Jesus. It
attempted to prove that the actual
death occurred within a few short
hours on the cross because of ex-
treme blood loss from post-trial
scourgings, compounded by shock
and breathing difficulties. The ar-
ticle entitled "On the Physical
Death of Jesus Christ," bases its
conclusions on the "source
materials nf'r]eie,flt*Witf"'rrtodern
writers, claiming that through the
use of the legal-historical method
of scientific investigation,
"scholars have established the
reliability and accuracy of the an-
cient manuscripts." The most ex-
tensive of these descriptions are
to be found in the New Testament
Gospels, according to the article.
Report Takes Unusual
The report immediately
diverges from the usual educa-
tional tone of Journal articles by
stating a presumption that
Jesus' health was generally good
before his ordeal because his
ministry included strenuous foot
travel throughout Palestine.
However, the report continues:
"during the 12 hours between 9
p.m. Thursday and 9 a.m. Friday,
he had suffered great emotional
stress abandonment by his
closest friends (the disciples), and
a physical beating (after the first
Jewish trial)."
In a later reference to the
scourging in the report, which in-
dicated how the beatings produc-
ed "intense pain .. and ap-
preciable blood loss" leaving
Jesus in "a preshock state," the
deduction here was that Jesus'
condition undoubtedly became
critical because of "The physical
and mental abuse meted out by
the Jews and the Romans, as well
as the lack of food, water, and
sleep. ."
Who Crucified Jesus?
Rabbi Warshal responded say-
ing that the American Medical
Association has "inadvertently
embroiled itself in an historical
controversy." He regretted that
the article could not have dealt ex-
clusively with the medical aspects
of Jesus' death "without making
ancillary remarks about its
historical context." The rabbi felt
that the article was not anti-
Semitic, but because the authors
were motivated by an internal
theological argument, "... a by-
product of that debate, the old ac-
rNrftclton of Whip Mark*

cusation, based on the gospels,
that the Jews killed Jesus,
He went on to deal with the
historical question of who
crucified Jesus, making five
points in substantiation. The first
concerned the historical accuracy
of the gospels. Rabbi Warshal ex-
plained that historical accuracy as
we know it today "did not exist in
the Jewish world of Jesus and is
certainly not reflected in the
gospels." He said the last gospel
was written 90 to 120 years after
the death of Jesus. Rabbi Warshal
maintained that one must ques-
tion the historical accuracy of any
book written many years after an
event especially without the
benefit of research opportunities
available at modern libraries.
Besides, Twentieth Century
historical motivation cannot be
applied to Second Century writers
"who had their own agenda," he
The Rabbi's second point con-
tended that there was no Jewish
motive for crucifying Jesus. He
described Judaism then as "a
cauldron of emerging religious
thought," which would not have
posed a threat to the First Cen-
tury Jewish establishment. Fur-
thermore, he stated, "... there is
no Jewish tradition of killing for
theological reasons. Sadly, burn-
ing at the stake for the sake of
beliefs is a legacy of our daughter
religion, Christianity."
Roman motivation for the
crucifixion became the Rabbi's
third point. He noted that the
Romans were in a constant state
of vigilance to avoid Jewish insur-
rection. Certainly, individual Jews
were involved in the crucifixion,
but, he added, "It is historically
consonant with what scholars
know of First Century Judea to
believe that Jesus was crucified by
the Romans for political reasons,
justified or unjustified."
In his fourth point, Rabbi War-
shal went on to question the
references in the report to Jesus'
appearance before "a political
Sanhedrin" at night and "a
religious Sanhedrin" at daybreak.
He called the Sanhedrin a quisl-
ing Roman-Jewish court" with lit-
tle relevance to the true Jewish
religious establishment. As for the
religious body, he said that this
court never tried cases involving
capital punishment, let alone on
Passover eve or on the first day of
Finally, Rabbi Warshal observ-
ed that the method of killing Jesus
was indicative of Roman justice
and not of Jewish justice. Jewish
law did not permit crucifixion, he
said. In summation, the Rabbi
suggested that the Journal's
medical conclusions might have
stood on their own without im-
plicating Judaism.

Concern in the Medical
Dr. Ury Kalai, one of the area
physicians who contacted Rabbi
Warshal about the report, stated
in his own letter to the Journal
that he as a reader, received the
message, "Hey, Jews are Christ
Speaking on behalf of his col-
leagues, Kalai, an Ear, Nose and
Throat specialist on Linton Blvd.
in Delray Beach, said that the
Journal of the American Medical
Association had always been "a
forum for open and responsible
discussion of matters relevant to
the field of medicine. He described
the Journal's mission as being
education; to inform its readers of
progress in clinical medicine,
medical research and of
developments in related fields of
interest to the physicians.
"All of the sudden," he said,
"there is an article here that has
no medical education value at all."
He claimed the article un-
necessarily illustrates a descrip-
tion not only of pain and suffer-
ing, but also the tools (and their
construction) of how to inflict pain
and suffering. None of this has
relevance to a medical article, he
Dr. Larry S. Charme, a
gynecologist in Meadows Rd. in
Boca Raton, felt that the issue of
anti-Semitism must appear among
the professional's comments too.
"The inferences are there," he
said. "This was an appropriate ar-
ticle for a theological journal. I
think that it is professionally
unacceptable and repugnant."
Convent Planned For
Auschwitz Camp Site
PARIS (JTA) Five chief
rabbis from four European coun-
tries have urged Pope John Paul
II to reconsider plans by the
Roman Catholic Church to
establish a convent at the site of
the Auschwitz death camp in
A letter to the Pontiff was sign-
ed by Chief Rabbi Immanuel
Jakobovits of Britain; Chief Rabbi
Rene Sirat of France; Max
Warschawski. Chief Rabbi of
Alsatia; Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen
of Rumania; and Chief Rabbi
Mordechai Piron of Zurich
They stated in their letter, The
site of the former concentration
camp has become synonymous
with the Holocaust (of the Jewish
people)" and "turning it into a
religious pilgrimage would be both
painful and injurious." The pro-
posed convent would house nuns
of the Carmelite order from a half
dozen countries, including Ger-
many and Poland.
The Archbishop of Cracow, Car-
dinal Franciszek Marcharski. has
defended the project as "proof
that goodness is stronger than
evil." In a letter published in the
Vatican newspaper rOsservatore
Romano on February 21, he main-
tained that Auschwitz has become
"a holy place for all of humanity
and belongs to all nations."

Tax Reform Act Could Tax
Municipal Bond Interest
Investors have long been fond
of purchasing municipal bonds for
their tax benefits. Municipal
bonds are obligations of state and
local governments and their agen-
cies issued in order to finance
governmental spending.
Historically, the interest from
such obligations has been com-
pletely exempt from federal in-
come taxation.
In their rush to balance the
revenue loss from the anticipated
lowering of tax rates, both the
House of Representatives and the
Senate Finance Committee have
devised a plan to tax such in-
terest. Both plans call for in-
cluding such interest as a tax
preference item when computing
the individual taxpayer's alter-
native minimum tax. The House
plan would include as a tax
preference item only the interest
from certain industrial develop-
ment bonds, which are bonds
issued by state and local govern-
ments in order to finance private
enterprises. The Senate Finance
Committee, on the other hand,
has tentatively agreed that all tax
exempt interest from new bond
issues should be included as a tax
preference item.
The alternative minimum tax is
a special tax that applies only if
the alternative minimum tax is
greater than the regular tax that
would be paid by an individual.
The alternative minimum tax is
calculated by adding back into the
taxable income of the taxpayer all
tax preference items. These tax
preference items include, among
other things, the 60 percent
deduction for capital gains, excess
depreciation deductions, depletion
allowances and other technical tax
benefits. By including interest
from municipal bonds as a tax
preference item, this income
would then become subject to the
alternative minimum tax. Once all
the tax preference item have been
added back into the taxpayer's in-
come, a flat tax rate of 20 percent
is applied to the entire amount.
However, the first $40,000
($30,000 in the case of a single
person) is not subject to the alter-
native minimum tax.
For example, assume that a
married person filing a joint
return has $50,000 in taxable in-
come, and also has an additional
$50,000 in interest income from
municipal bonds. Under the tax
rates proposed by the Senate
Finance Committee, his regular
tax (which would not take into
consideration the interest from
the municipal bonds) would be
$10,500. However, under the pro-
posed rules, the taxpayer would
have to include the $50,000 in in-
terest from the municipal bonds
when calculating his alternative
minimum tax. This would result in
$100,000 of alternative minimum
taxable income, taxed as follows:
$100,000 Alternative
taxable income
Less 40,000 Exclusion
x 20% Tax Rate
$12,000 Alternative
minimum tax
Since the alternative minimum
tax of $12,000 is greater than his
regular tax of $10,500, the tax-
payer would have to pay the
$12,000 alternative minimum tax.
In this case, the taxpayer has paid
an additional $1,500 in taxes as a
result of the interest from his
municipal bonds.
It is important to note that not
all taxpayers would pay an addi-
tional tax as a result of interest
received from municipal bonds.
This depends on the amount of
such interest and its proportion to
other sources of taxable income.
For example, if our imaginary tax-
payer only had $30,000 in tax ex-
empt interest (instead of the
$50,000 assumed in the example
above) he would not be subject to
the alternative minimum tax. This
is because his alternative
minimum tax would only be
$8,000. which is less than his
regular tax of $10,500. (Note that
his regular tax does not charier.-
because this interest is excluded
from the regular tax.) In such a
case, his interest income from the
municipal bonds would not be

The Senate Finance Committee
has tentatively agreed that any
bill that comes out of the commit-
tee would provide for this change
in the law to apply only to
municipal bonds issued after 1981.
so the proposed change would not
affect owners of existing bonds.
However, the Chairman of the
Senate Finance Committee,
Senator Bob Packwood (R.. ORE.)
initially wanted this change to ap-
ply to all municipal bonds no mat
ter when issued. It is possible that
this change could ultimately affect
existing bonds, although there is a
great deal of political pressure
against this. It is also possible that
a compromise between the House
and Senate would only subject in-
dustrial development bonds to the
alternative minimum tax.
Many financial advisors suggest
that if these proposed rules are
enacted into law, that the market
value of municipal bonds currently
in the hands of investors would go
down. This is because newly
issued bonds would likely provide
for a higher interest rate to make
up for the fact that the interest
would be partially taxable to
wealthier investors. In such a
case, current bonds with lower in
terest rates should decrease in
value. Therefore, such legislation
could affect municipal bond
owners, even though they are not
subject to the alternative minmum
tax, because the value of theii
bonds could decrease. It is impor
tant to note that tax reforrr
politics has a habit of changing
proposed rules at a moment's
notice before they become enactec
into law. Therefore, it would b<
advisable for owners of municipal
bonds to keep an eye on the tax
reform process.

Heinz Galinski
He Still Rules' Berlin Jewry

BERLIN The decision
to reestablish the Jewish
community in Berlin at the
end of 1945 was not taken
lightly. "There were grave
doubts whether there was
any future for Jews in Ger-
many after the Nazi
Holocaust," says Heinz
Galinski. "Many felt it was
out of the question."
Herr Galinski has been head of
the Jewish community in Berlin
since 1949. Many Jews, he recalls,
felt in those days they couldn't
possibly live amid a people who
had at least approved the persecu-
tion and annihilation of their
Jewish fellow-citizens.
JUST OVER 1.000 of the
ISO,000 Jews who lived in pre-war
Berlin survived the Nazi
machinery of destruction.
They included fashion designer
Ruth Thomas, who was hidden
away by the wife of an SS officer
of all people, and TV quizmaster
Hans Rosenthal, who spent the
last few months of the war in a
friend's allotment garden in
Lichtenberg, an East Berlin
These two survivors are still
members of a community now
numbering 6,000, making it the
largest Jewish community in
The life of the Jewish communi-
ty was reactivated from the mo-
ment the Red Army occupied the
city in April, 1945. "The fact
was," Galinski recalls, "that a
handful of Jews had survived in
Berlin. They needed to be
recharged with vital energy and
to be retained as members of the
Jewish community.
"WE FELT this point was
more important than all objec-
tions to reestablish Jewish
Heinz Galinski, 73, is a key man
in the post-war history of the
Jewish community in Berlin,
which was reestablished on
December 20, 1945.
His mother and first wife were
killed in Auschwitz. He was im-
prisoned in Auschwitz, Buchen-
wald and Belsen. He returned to
Berlin as soon as the war was
He first looked after the sur-
vivors of racial persecution on
behalf of the City Council. In
1949, he was elected board chair-
man of the Jewish community in
West Berlin and has regularly
been reelected by a large majority
ever since.
"Not even in times of direst
persecution did we lose hope of
democracy and humanitarianism
returning to Germany after the
end of Nazi dictatorship," he
wrote in 1980.
HE IS strongly in favor of mak-
ing the life of the Jewish com-
munity more accessible and
transparent. While opposing
assimilation, he espouses the
cause of integration in a
pluralistic society.
"Making Judaism more
transparent," he says, "will
counteract the spread of anti-
Jewish prejudice."
The synagogue in
Fasanenstrasse was rebuilt in
1959 on the site of a synagogue
sacked in 1938. In the early 1960s
a Jewish night school was set up,
offering evening classes in
Hebrew and Yiddish to non-Jews.
It is the only facility of its kind
in Europe, and 80 percent of its
students are now Gentiles.
OPENING UP the Jewish com-
munity also means, as Galinski
sees it, speaking out when politi-
cians and authorities in the
Heinz Galinski
Federal Republic of Germany op-
pose neo-Nazism and anti-
Semitism only half-heartedly.
When Bonn Interior Minister
Friedrich Zimmermann refused to
voice disapproval of a meeting of
former Waffen-SS men in
Nesselwang, Bavaria, Galinski
was most upset.
Zimmermann merely said it was
for the Bavarian authorities to
decide whether the meeting
should be held, the country being
run on federal lines.
"I FEEL it is totally inap-
propriate to want to explain to so-
meone directly affected and a
former concentration camp in-
mate the difference between Nazi
dictatorship and parliamentary
democracy," Galinski said.
He was equally forthright in
telling the Christian Democrats
how he felt about the painfully
slow progress of legislation to
make saying sue million Jews
weren't murdered at Nazi concen-
tration camps an indictable
"I don't know whether those
responsible can possibly ap-
preciate how a survivor of
Auschwitz feels," he said, "about
having to file a suit himself to take
action against those who deny
that six million Jews were killed."
FORTY YEARS after it was
reestablished the Jewish com-
munity in Berlin is still influenced
by pre-war trends. There are two
wings, the Orthodox and the
But they joined forces after the
war because, as Heinz Galinski
nuts it, "a Jewish community
decimated by the Nazi machinery
of persecution and destruction
could no longer afford the luxury
of rivalry between religious
The community has an im-
pressive record of integration.
Early in 1946, many Polish Jews
arrived in Berlin.
Most went on to Palestine but
some stayed in the city and were
fully accepted by the Jewish com-
munity that was mainly German.
Hungarian, Rumanian and
Czech Jews followed, and in the
late 1970s, several thousand
Soviet Jews arrived in West
Berlin via Vienna or Israel.
About 2,500 of them have
stayed in the city.
THERE WAS heated debate
about these latecomers at the
time, but they are now largely in-
tegrated in a Jewish community of
which they make up nearly half
the membership.
The Jewish community in West
Berlin maintains ties with Jews on
the other side of the Wall.
On High Holy days the cantor of
the Liberal synagogue, Estrongo
Nachama, who was born in
Thessaloniki and is a survivor of
Auschwitz and Sachsenhausen,
holds services for the last 200
Jews in East Berlin.

Rightwing Reagan
Bloc Pressures
Shultz Ouster
London Chronicle Syndicate
Secretary of State George
Shultz is facing mounting
criticism from rightwing
conservative supporters of
President Reagan. They
have waged an intense bat-
tle in recent months to try
to force him out of the Ad-
ministration. Simply put,
they believe that he is too
"moderate" on many
foreign policy issues,
especially in connection
with the Soviet Union.
For these conservatives who
are very loyal to Reagan, it is
politically much easier to complain
about Shultz than about the Presi-
dent, who has very consistently
supported the Secretary's stance
on most foreign policy issues. The
conservatives say they primarily
want Shultz out because of his
clearly impressive clout with
Reagan and other senior U.S.
policymakers, especially the
powerful White House Chief of
Staff. Donald Regan. Since suc-
ceeding Alexander Haig in June.
1982, Shultz has almost always
managed to get his way.

criticism from the rightwing of
the Republican Party, is showing
no signs of leaving the State

officials and pro-Israeli sup-

he remains exactly where he is.

That Shultz has become as such
a great champion of Israel is
somewhat surprising, given his
background with Bechtel, the San
Francisco-based engineering con-

ment, there were real fears
among Israeli officials and their
supporters in Washington that the
new Secretary would move the
U.S. away from Israel.

occurred. Instead. Shultz has
demonstrated a keen sensitivity to

of revived friction is still real once
the secret Grand Jury meeting in
Washington files its formal indict-
ments against Pollard and his
wife. Anne Henderson-Pollard
the current climate in
Washington-Jerusalem relations
is almost back to normal. Israeli
officials are the first to credit
Shultz for this.
Coincidentally, Minister without
Portfolio Moshe Arens had been
in Washington when the Pollard '
incident initially erupted. Arens, a
former Defense Minister and Am-
bassador to the United States, had
met Shultz that very first day.
TOGETHER, they set in mo-
tion the events which eventually
led to Israel's diplomatically un-1
precedented decision to allow a
high-level delegation from the
State Department, the Justice
Department, the Federal Bureau
of Investigation and the U.S. At-
torney's Office in Washington to
visit Israel. There, they met the
key Israeli intelligence operatives
implicated in the affair. They also
received all of the stolen
documents from Israel.
Shultz, moreover, had been in
close personal contact with Prime
Minister Shimon Peres
throughout that ordeal. "We were
very lucky that he (Shultz) was in
charge," one Israeli official said.
"It could have turned out much
worse for us."

Activists Protest
They Want To Hear Louis Farrakhan

London Chronicle Syndicate
LONDON A pathetic
anniversary: 50 years after
the East End's victory over
racism in the Battle of Cable
Street, some black activists
in the East End protest at
the ban on Louis Farrakhan,
the American Black Muslim
leader, entering Britain.
The ban will prevent them
hearing tributes to Hitler's
greatness and denunciations of
"lying Judaism" from Far-
rakhan's own lips. They will also
miss his warning to the Jews
"You can't say 'Never Again' to
God, because when he puts you in
the ovens, it's forever!" which
drew applause from a large black
audience in the United States.
What is the background to the
Farrakhan phenomenon, the
latest manifestation of black
separatism? In its original form,
in Marcus Garvey's Back to-
Africa movement of the 1920s, it
was avowedly pro-Zionist.
THEN, after the Second World
War, the Black Muslims harness-
ed burgeoning black con-
sciousness to Islam (incidentally,
in blatant disregard of the crucial
Arab involvement in the African
slave trade). The Muslims acted as
a conduct for the spread of anti-
Israel sentiment among U.S.
The late 1960s saw "long hot
summers" of Harlem and Watts,
entailing attacks on Jewish pro-
perty in those areas. (Jews formed
the bulk of shopkeepers in U.S.

in Handsworth. Birmingham.)

when a pupil's poem entitled
"Hey, Jewboy, I wish you were

radio station.
What motivates Farrakhan to
revive it? It cannot be ignorance
of the fact that the Jews have
done more for black emancipation
than any other segment of
American "white" society.

Behind The Headlines
Israeli-Greek Relations Are On Hold
Spain established diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel in January there
was eager speculation that a
similarly long-awaited move from
Athens would follow. The expec-
tations were heightened by a four-
day meeting in Greece between
Foreign Minister Karlos
Papoulias and David Kimche,
Director-General of Israel's
Foreign Ministry.
Then, like a bucket of cold water
dispassionately overturned on a
barely rekindled flame, came the
news from Belgrade, where the
visiting Papoulias gave an inter-
view to Greek journalists: Athens
will stick by its "political prin-
ciples," he told the journalists.
Formal diplomatic relations are,
for now at least, out of the
The unequivocal negative
stance of Papoulias left disap-
pointment and puzzlement in its
wake, especially since relations
had appeared to be warming up
between the two countries.
Greece has all the components of
an Embassy in Tel Aviv. The only
real difference is that they fail to
add up to an Embassy, calling
itself instead a "diplomatic
Turkey, on the other hand, has
an Embassy, but recently moved
more closely into line with other
Moslem states by lowering its
diplomatic representation to the
level of Second Secretary, and
thus stripping the formal
representation of its substance.
Concern about economic sanc-
tions from Arab states and possi-
ble terrorist attacks against
Spaniards at home and abroad had
long delayed Madrid's decision to
establish relations with Israel.
That Failed To
A Move
But once the move was taken by
Spain, a recently-admitted
member of the European
Economic Community (EEC),
which had made recognition of
Israel one of the conditions for
Spanish membership, the simple
step from de facto to de jure
recognition of Israel by Greece
another EEC member would
have hardly appeared a dramatic
break with past policy, according
to advocates of Greek recognition
of Israel.
"It's ridiculous," said Joseph
Lovinger, veteran leader of
Greek's tiny Jewish community,
of his country's failure to come
through after Spain made the
Lovinger, who was recently
here on one of his frequent visits
to the United States, said that
before the Papoulias statement he
had predicted to a U.S. Senator
here that formal recognition
would come about under the
leadership of Prime Minister An-
dreas Papandreou.
But a relatively new and other-
wise unrelated concern of Athens
has worked its way into the issue,
according to Lovinger, by adding
to his country's sense of
vulnerability to possible Arafat
The issue is the Greek-Turkish
conflict over the island of Cyprus.
The conflict provided a new chip
for Arab states seeking to
dissuade Greek recognition of
Israel, according to Lovinger,
when the Turkish Republic of Nor-
thern Cyprus was established in

Chief Source Of Athens'
But Lovinger said that Greek
officials had told him of concern
that if Athens were to establish
full diplomatic relations with
Israel, Arab countries would
retaliate by recognizing the
Turkish republic in Cyprus. This,
Lovinger told the JTA, was a chief
source of Athens' refusal to
change its policy.
Lovinger suggested that his
government's policy on Israel
might change if Papandreou
moves closer to the center o! the
political spectrum in Greece, as he
predicts he will over the next cou-
ple of years. Fear of its isolation in
a region that is becoming increas-
ingly Islamic in character, Lov-
inger said, will naturally push
Greece and Israel closer together.
In the meantime, Greece has ex-
tended an official invitation to
Israel's Tourism Minister,
Avraham Sharir, to visit Greece,
Kimche announced during his visit
there. Sharir would be the first
Israeli Minister to be hosted by
Greece in more than 20 years.
But formal recognition by
Greece remains contingent on its
longstanding conditions that ap-
pear to have little chance of being
met any time soon: the total
withdrawal of Israeli troops from
territory occupied in 1967, and the
commencement of negotiations
between all parties concerned to
find a just and permanent solution
to the Middle East problem, in-
cluding the Palestinian issue.
Situation Of Greece's Jews
On his 18th year as leader of the
Greek Jewish community, Lov-
inger said that irrespective of
disappointment on the recognition
issue, Jews in Greece who now
number some 6,000, over half of
them residing in Athens had
few grievances as Jews.
The appearance of a swastika
"here and there," or an occasional
rabid article from fringe group
newspapers, are a fact of life, but
no more, no less, than in other
countries where Jews reside, he
"We are married with Greece.
But our mother is Israel. And you
must not forget your mother,"
Lovinger said.
Mica Anti-Terrorism Bill Sweeps House
WASHINGTON A five-year
plan authored by U.S. Rep. Dan
Mica (D-Fla.) to make U.S. em-
bassies terrorist-resistant won a
sweeping victory in the House of
Representatives March 18.
Mica, chairman of the Foreign
Affairs subcommittee that
oversees embassy operations, said
the far-reaching legislation would
upgrade security at 154 overseas
facilities; beef up domestic anti-
terrorism measures; establish a
benefits program for government
employees and their families who
are victims of terrorism and, final-
ly, require the creation of a "10
Most Wanted Terrorists" list
along with a system of rewards
for information.
"This is the single most impor-
tant anti-terrorism package ever
passed by the House," Mica said
after the 389-7 vote. "It
represents the first line of defense
in what we expect to become an
increasingly violent war on
The Senate is expected to con-
Rep. Dan Mica
sider similar legislation in mid-
June. Mica said he hopes to see
the Omnibus Diplomatic Security
and Anti-Terrorism Act on Presi-
dent Reagan's desk by early sum-
mer at the latest.
The Key provisions of Mica's
diplomatic-security package
would rebuild 79 diplomatic mis-
sions and renovate another 175
overseas facilities considered
vulnerable to attack. It would
streamline the anti-terrorism
bureaucracy within the State
Department, and create boards of
inquiry to determine accountabili-
ty for security lapses that result in
death or significant property
Mica's embassy security legisla-
tion stems from his 1984 appoint-
ment to the Secretary of State's
anti-terrorism task force. The
eight-member panel was headed
by Adm. Bobby Inman.
The omnibus bill, which has
White House backing, included
several provisions sponsored by
other members of Congress.
Among them are strict maritime
safeguards for U.S. ports, precau-
tions for the transportation of
nuclear materials, and rewards
for information on international
'' narco terrorists.''

Statatica at that time said that
the Jewish Russian population
was the second or third largest in
the world, something under three
millK^n. f/f these, one million were
happy with the system and some
were making it into the political
pr'jress giving up their religion
and doing well within th oaaaje parameters.
TTiere were another million
Jews, basically older people who.
if there wan freedom of religion
and no hassle, they too would pro
riably practice Judaism.
Then, there were a million peo-
ple who were really unhappy, who
would have liked to be real Jews
and were prepared to become
refuseniks. The fear was more
than the drive and therefore, they
didn't get involved.
In the latter group, there were
only 150,000 who could be formal
ly classified as Refuseniks. I only
met with 15 to 20 of these people.
Some were brilliant and had been
nominated for Nobel Prizes. It
was a waste of talent that they
could no longer work because they
happened to be Jewish and
wanted to leave the country.
However, these people were not
depressed. There really was a
sparkle in their eyes. They felt
they were doing something impor-
tant for themselves, their families
and for the Jewish cause. I found
that unique, especially among the
younger people because they had
no tradition of history. Anatoly
Shcharansky couldn't do that. He
was born into a family who didn't
practice their faith.
He had, through associations
with others, an ability to unders-
tand and relate to what we
(Americans) have and that !>ecame

Soviet Jewry Update
Friday, April 11, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
remarkably swift trial held in Fon-
tanka District Court, VLADIMIR
LIFSHITZ, a 45-year-old
mathematician, was given the
maximum sentence of three years
for "defaming the Soviet state."
He becomes the newest Prisoner
of Conscience, joining others who
are serving sentences on a variety
of charges.
Lifshitz was arrested Jan. 8.
The basis of the allegations
against him were contained in let-
ters he had written to the Central
Committee in 1983 and to the
Supreme Soviet renouncing his
Soviet citizenship. Authorities
also cited letters he had written to
Israeli Prime Minister, Shimon
Peres, and Foreign Minister, It-
zhak Shamir, asking them to
"raise the question of the
repatriation of Jews from the
USSR." Lifshitz also wrote
similar letters to friends and
relatives in Israel, London, and
the U.S.
Vladimir's wife, ANNA,
believes that the letters were il-
legally intercepted. She had tried
unsuccessfully to get a postpone-
ment of the trial after learning
that he had been badly beaten by
criminals in his cell. The lawyer
Anna selected from the court
panel petitioned the court to
withdraw the case because the
evidence was too flimsy. She is

New One-Shekel Note Appears
Cabinet, yielding to public
pressure, ordered the printing of a
new one-Shekel note as compa-
nion to the new one-Shekel coin
which has been disparaged by
Israelis because of its small size.
The Cabinet acted recently
because many people find it hard
to take the coin seriously as "real
money." It is referred to as "the
button" because it is so much
smaller than coins of less value.
The new Shekel, note or coin,
equals 1,000 old Shekels and has a
vlaue of 66 cents, American.
The new note, like the coin, will
bear a likeness of Maimonides
(Rambam), the 12th Century
Jewish philosopher and physician.
The Cabinet also approved the
printing of a 100 Shekel note
which will carry a portrait of the
late Yitzhak Ben Zvi, the second
President of Israel. It will be the
highest denomination banknote in
circulation. Until now the highest
is a 50 Shekel note.

Israel Will 'Consider Carefully'
Future Relations With Austria
Justice Minister Moshe
Nissim said last Thursday
that mounting evidence that
former United Nations
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim has a Nazi past
will require Israel "to con-
sider carefully" whether it
is possible to have any rela-
tions with him in the future.
Waldheim is the conservative
Peoples Party candidate for the
Presidency of Austria in elections
to be held May 5. Austrian and
Yugoslavian newspapers and the
World Jewish Congress have
made public in recent weeks war-
time and post-war documents in-
dicating that Waldheim was in-
volved in the murder and torture
of partisan fighters while a lieute-
nant attached to the German
General Staff in the Balkans dur-
ing World War II.
HE ALSO may have been im-
plicated in the deportation of
Greek Jews from Salonika. Nissim
was the first ranking Israeli of-
ficial to comment on the
Waldheim affair. He said that
Israel would have to weigh its
position if, for example, the ques-
tion of Waldheim's visiting Israel
arises in the future.
There have been no indications
from present or past officers of
the Israel foreign service as to
whether Israel knew of or
suspected Waldheim's alleged
Nazi activities during his two
terms as UN Secretary General
Waldheim denied any Nazi past
in an interview with Israel Radio
from Vienna. He said his wartime
service in the Balkans was limited
to acting as an interpreter for the
German High Command.
Two Yugoslavian newspapers
and the Austrian daily Kurier
published documents found in a
Belgrade archive which reveal
that Waldheim was wanted for
war crimes in 1947 in connection
with atrocities committed against
partisans and civilians during the
German occupation.
WORLD JEWISH Congress in
New York has released a 1948
U.S. Army document showing
that after World War II both the
Army and the United Nations
War Crimes Commission listed
Waldheim as a suspected Nazi war
criminal. The document, from the
Army's "Combined Registry of
War Criminals and Security
Suspects" (CROWCASS), reports
that Waldheim's arrest was
sought by Yugoslavia on suspicion
of complicity in what the Registry
listed as "murder."
According to the documents
published in Belgrade and Vienna,
it was Waldheim who, despite his
junior rank, made proposals for
retaliation measures agaisnt local
populations after partisan attacks
and on the treatment of hostages.
His proposals were passed on to
his superiors.
Waldheim flatly rejected the
allegations as "lies, defamation
and devilish intrigue." He main-
tained that the documents lumped
all German officers together and
because no proof was ever found,
the charges were quietly dropped
by the Yugoslav authorities.
heads the Nazi war crimes
documentation center in Vienna,
said last Thursday that the
Yugoslav authorities should check
into why the allegations against
Waldheim were not pursued after
1947. "There is a whole range of
possibilities, from pure laziness
and sloth to a feeling that the
suspicions were not justified," he
Meanwhile, Alois Mock, chair-
man of the Peoples Party, accused
the WJC of "infamous meanness
and unwarranted interference
with Austrian political matters."
Mock called on the Socialist-led
Austrian government to protect
Waldheim as a citizen from un-
justified attacks coming from

President Rudolph Kir-
chschlaeger to call a special ses-

But Socialist Chancellor Fred
Sinowatz said no such session was
necessary. He said it was
Waldheim's duty to prove the
charges unfounded. He added that
the government would not in-
tervene against a private
organization in the U.S., meaning

A Well-Written History Of Synagogues
Synagogues of Europe: Ar-
chitecture, History, Meaning.
By Carol Herselle Krinsky. The
A rchitecturol History Foundation
and The MIT Press, 28 Carleton
Street, Cambridge, MA 02142.
1985. 457 pages. $50.
Reviewed by Vivian B. Mann
More than 20 years have passed
since the publication of the last
serious survey of European
-wiagogue architecture (The Ar-
chitecture of the European
Synagogue by Rachel
Wischnitzer). New archaeological
discoveries, restorations, and
research in the intervening years
demanded a book like Carol
Herselle Krinsky's Synagogues of
The scope of the topic obviously
presented problems of presenta-
tion, even within the confines of a
457-page book. The diverse poten-
tial audiences, scholarly or public,
Jewish or Gentile, must have also
been a factor in determining the
organization of the material and
the contents. Professor Krinsky
has chosen an unusual format as
an answer to these questions. The
first 138 pages are devoted to
three essays: an introduction on
the origin and definition of the
synagogue which also includes a
comparison to other religious
buildings and to secular ones;
"Ritual Arrangements" which
discusses the perennial problem of
synagogue architecture the
relative arrangement of the Torah
ark and the reader's desk, as well
as lighting, spaces for women,
auxiliary spaces, and the place-
ment of pulpit, choir and organ;
and thirdly, an essay on the
history of the synagogue from an-
tiquity to modern times. These
essays are annotated, but accom-
panied by very few illustrations,
bo that readers who are unfamiliar
with the monuments mentioned in
the text must turn to the second
half of the book, "Selected Ex-
amples," both for illustrations and
for examples which deepen their
knowledge of the general points
being made.
The organization of the second
half is entirely different. The
selected synagogues discussed are
arranged geographically under
nine headings: Austria-Hungary
and the Balkans (there are no
Greek synagogues in this section
or elsewhere), Eastern Europe
and the USSR, France and
Belgium, Germany and
Switzerland, Iberian Peninsula,
Italy, The Netherlands, Scan-
dinavia, and the United Kingdom.
Within areas, the synagogues are
listed by city, from the oldest to
the most recent. Each monument
is treated in a concise essay ac-
companied by a helpful
bibliography and illustrations.
One has the impression that this
part of the book is intended as a
ready reference for those plann-
ing a trip to a particular area of
Europe, an impression which is
reinforced by the "Notes for the
Visitor" at the back of the book, a
peculiar inclusion if the book were
intended only for a scholarly au-
dience. Yet, if the book is also aim-
ed for the lay public, as it clearly
is, then it is unfortunate that
there is no glossary of architec-
tural terms to explain artesonado,
pendentives, Tuscan columns, and
the like. There is a glossary of
Hebrew terms, an extensive
bibliography, and two appendices.
a list of selected architects sub-
divided into Christian and Jewish,
and a list of extant Polish
synagogues and their present uses
(but no listing of extant Greek or
Italian synagogues or of any other
country whose Jewish population
was decimated by the war).
Synagogues of Europe is a very
well-written book. Carol Krin-
sky's sprightly prose carries the
reader along and, her text in-
cludes lively comments not usually
found in works by academics. The
book is also beautifully designed
and printed. Professor Krinsky is
fortunate to have had as
publishers the Architectural
History Foundation and the MIT
Still, this is in some ways, an an-
noying book, particularly the in-
troductory essays of the first sec-
tion. The author often presents
sweeping generalizations based
on incomplete evidence. In ex-
plaining why her book focuses on
Central and Western Europe
synagogues instead of including
more material on Eastern
Europe. Ms. Krinsky writes:
"Adherents of the ultraorthodox,
mystically-oriented Hasidic sect,
which was prominent especially in
Eastern Europe from the late
18th Century onward, profess in-
difference to their surroundings
during prayer and devote more at-
tention to rooms where they
study" as if all Hasidim were in-
different to architecture, a fact
disproved elsewhere in the book,
or that all East European Jews
were Hasidim. (For some inex- I
Elicable reason, Ms. Krinsky |
eeps referring to the plural as
Hasids.) Equally disconcerting in I
a book on synagogues are the con-1
stant use of terms "Holy Land," a
name with distinct Christological *
references, and "ultra-|
Orthodox," an adjective which is
indiscriminently used, even for-
the Judaism of Rabbi Samson I
Raphael Hirsch (1808-1888) who|
advocated a union of traditional-
Jewish life with modernism.!
Despite shortcomings such as I
these, Synagogues of Europe is a
significant work which will remain
an important reference.

Andrea combined it with Purim.
The students dress up in
costumes, primarily Purim
related, and are served haman-
tashen for snacks afterward. This
year the Preschool and the lower
grades were treated to an addi-
tional surprise, a puppet show!
The show, held in the JCC
auditorium was the Purim story
with characters familiar to all:
Hamin, Queen Esther, and King
Achashverous. The students
thoroughly enjoyed the enactment
of a story.
Other surprises were Principal
Burt Lowlicht dressed as Care
Bear and an unknown guest who
wore a costume which the
students immediately recognized
as "Burt" from Sesame Street.

chestrated a carnival for the en-

The Spielathon has become
tradition at the Day School, a fun-

forward. Each year more is added
to the itinerary and more money is
raised as well. Last year $10,000

Mossovitz set the goal $2,000
above that reaching a prestigious
total of $12,000. Students are fur-
ther encouraged to do their best
at finding sponsors and running
the track by a contest. The
students who raise the most
money are awarded U.S. Savings
bonds. From the enthusiasm and

A special Purim mitzvah was
undertaken by the Day School as
they visited the senior citizens in
our community and entertained
them with Purim songs. The
Preschool class of Andrea
Mossovitz, performed a variety of
Purim poems and songs at the
Kosher Konnection at Anshei
Emuna. The audience enjoyed
their costumes and their impec-
cable timing. After their
30-minute presentation they cir-
culated the room wishing their au-
dience a personal Happy Purim.
The third grade class of Rennee
Brounstein brought with them the
Purim spirit when they visited the
Hillhaven Convalescent Center.
Their elaborate song and dance
routine was a big hit with the
residents who see youngsters too
rarely. Their (the students) youth
and spirit seemed to be addictive
as the audience slowly joined in
the singing of Purim songs.
Principal Burt Lowlicht en-
courages such mitzvot and feels it
is an important contribution to the
Jewish community of which the
Day School is part.

her growing up in an Orthodox
Jewish community, the inability to
assimilate and the lack of accep-
tance there. Still, Wendy
maintained, she is a strong
believer in the old ways. "They
are the only ways to keep Judaism
Rachel Piasecri intrigued her
audience with memories of 30
years in China. Rachel was born in
China of parents who had mar-
ried there. She remembered large
Jewish communities in China of
people who had fled Russia. There
were Jewish schools, hospitals and
synagogues, she said.
The men learned to speak
Chinese for business purposes,
but the women did not find it
necessary to learn the language,
she added.
She moved to Israel in 1949, and
13 years later joined relatives in
the States.
Harry Rosen grew up in the
Russian Ukraine, in a town called
Kuppel. He recalled his father's
grocery store, from which he
?raveled rejrularly to buy mer-
chandise. However, he had bitter
memories of Russian youth ston-
ing him and his horse and wagon.
The family eventually moved to
America because there was no
future there for them.
Argentina was psychologist
Donna Bentolila's, home until six
years ago when her husband
decided to practice medicine in the
United States. She said that there
are 600,000 Jews in Argentina
now. Jewish people always had
important positions in govern-
ment until the military govern-
ment took over, Donna said. To-
day the Jews there are
predominantly professionals,
physicians, architects, politicians,
writers and thinkers, she added.
Marianne Bobick, president of
the South County Jewish Federa-
tion grew up in Austria and con-
veyed vivid memories of wartime
atrocities. She remembered
leaflets dropped from the skies by
the Nazis informing Austrians of
the impending invasion in 1938.
Later the Nazis took over the up-
per floors of the family's apart-
ment buildinjr because it was an
elevator building. She said
they never knew that a Jewish
family lived below and this was
why their lives were spared. From
the windows of the apartment, the
family witnessed the killing of
Hasidic Jews in the street.
She concluded her remarks say-
ing. "Isn't it wonderful that we
are here in the South County
where there was no Jewish com-
munity 15 years ago."
Jill Serrano of the Jewish Fami-
ly and Children's Service coor-
dinated the program for the

cards, entertainment and a free
lunch. Managing the entire pro-
gram are Sy and Nancy Kessler of
Delray Beach, who even visit

hospitalized. Jill said that Nancy
Kessler is "a tough mother" to

ducted daily by Irving Karesh of

the threat from growing," Shultz
said on Jan. 15.
Addressing a Pentagon con-
ference on low-intensity warfare,
the Secretary added: "There is
substantial legal authority for the
view that a state which supports
terrorists or its subversive attacks
against another state or which
supports or encourages terrorist
planning and other activities
within its own territory is respon-
sible for such attacks. Such con-
duct can amount to an ongoing
armed aggreession against the
other state under international
WIS SAME argument, of
course, has often been used by
Israeli officials in defending their
own preemptive or retaliatory
strikes against terrorist targets in
Lebanon and elsewhere in the
region. This was Israel's basic
argument of "legitimate self-
defense" after its raid late last
year against PLO headquarters in
Shultz has not always come
down on Israel's side. Like vir-
tually everyone else in the Reagan
Administration, he is very suppor-
tive of the proposed safe of ad-
vanced anti-aircraft missiles and
jet fighters to Jordan. Israel op
poses that proposed transaction,
which is about to be considered
once again by Congress.
But the Secretry, even in urging
Israel and its friends to go along
with the sale, has put forward all
sorts of arguments that it is even
in Israel's own long-term best na-
tional interest to see the U.S. re-
main the major weapons supplier
to Jordan rather than Britain,
France and certainly the Soviet
Union. At least, the U.S., he and
other Administration spokesmen
have argued, will retain some con-
trol over the eventual use of that
And strengthening Jordan's
King Hussein militarily, they add,
will automatically encourage him
to enter into direct peace negotia-
tions with Israel. There will be
other positive political spinoffs for
the U.S. (and Israel) in the region
as well, according to the
THUS SHULTZ is known to
feel very frustrated by Israel's
refusal to consider these
arguments in easing its opposition
to the proposed sale.
But the Secretary understands
that no Israeli government can
easily be seen domestically as ac-
cepting U.S. weapons sales to
Arab countries still in a technical
state of war against Israel. The
political consequences could be
quite severe. Several senior
Israeli officials have quietly in-
formed Shultz that they do not
really fear the Jordan sale even if
they can't say so in public.
Certainly, a decision by Jordan
to enter into direct peace negotia-
tions with Israel would quickly
.-nake it easier for Israel and its
supporters in Congress and the
Jewish community to go along
with the Administration's sale.
But such an immediate
breakthrough on the peace front
is not seen as very likely.
In the meantime, Israeli of-
ficials are spreading the word that
they want Shultz to remain in of-
fice. Other pro-Israel lobbyists
with good contacts among the
conservatives pressing for
Shultz's ouster have sought to
temper the anti-Shultz
THE ARGUMENT of Israel's
friends to these conservatives is
that since strong U.S. support for
Israel is also on the conservative
agenda given Israel's
democratic and pro-American
orientation and its strategic role
in thwarting further Soviet
penetration of the Middle East
the right wingers should stop call-
ing for the Secretary's resigna-
tion. The conservatives, however,
counter that any future secretary,
with a clear conservative
background, would also support
Israel maybe even more so.
But that argument does not ex-
actly ease Israeli fears. They
know Shultz; they also trust and
like him. They don't know who
would follow.
Those who, for religious reasons,
object to Darwin's theory of evolu-
tion have responded with calls for
equal treatment of "scientific
creationism" and evolutionary
theory in science classes.
The courts have so far been
unanimous in rejecting such
claims, including most recently a
Louisiana "equal time" statute.
They have done so after determin-
ing that the doctrine of crea-
tionism is a religious doctrine
without scientific basis.
The Constitution does not forbid
teaching about religion.
Therefore, there would be no con-
stitutional objection to teaching a
philosophy course on the origins
of either the solar system or
humankind, or both, provided that
the religious theories of origin are
identified as such, not passed off
as science, and not endorsed by
the school.
"The Constitution stands as no
bar to the simple statement by
teachers (including science
teachers) that there are religious
groups which disagree with the
theory of evolution. Such
statements might do much to
defuse the controversy over the
teaching of evolution in the
schools," Ms. Ehrlich concluded.

Brazil's Jews Study Role As
Parliamentary Elections Approach
ZOA Launches Campaign
Against Saudi Arms Sale
Brazil's advancement on the road
to democracy and the forthcoming
Parliamentary elections have
sparked widespread debate within
the Jewish community as to its
stance regarding the elections and
vis-a-vis the democratic process in
general, the World Jewish Con-
gress reported here.
As a sign of the new democratic
era, elections for the Constituent
Assembly have become an issue
for heated polemics within the
Jewish community, particularly
among its institutional leaders.
"What should the community
do?" they are asking, "give its
support to individual candidates?
Promote Jewish candidates?"
reflects the changes that
democracy has brought to the
Jewish communities of South
America, is being waged entirely
in the open, and organs such as
Resenha Judaica, the Jewish com-
munal newspaper here, give it
publicity without inhibition.
Benno Milnitzky, president of
the Confederacao Israelite do
Brasil and president-elect of the
WJC Latin American branch,
"The community, since it is not
a political party and is integrated
into the civilian Brazilian society,
cannot have direct representation
in the Constituent Assembly.
What it can do is to participate in
the procedure, acting within the
Assembly, to ensure that the con-
stitution to be approved contains
safeguards considered indispen-
sable for the proper functioning of
the law."
Questioned by a reporter on
whether there are conditions for
the community's support of in-
dividual candidates, Milnitzky
replied in the negative. He added
that "The candidates represent
parties with varying, and even op-

JOSE KNOPLICH. president
of the Jewish Federation of Sao
Paulo, wrote in an article that
"The Federation will not remain
with folded arms in these for-
thcoming elections, and intends to
mobilize the yishuv (Jewish com-
munity) so that Sao Paulo may
have a Jewish representation in
the Constituent Assembly."
Knoplich explained that the Sao
Paulo Federation will make sure
that the most important parties,
when appointing candidates of
Jewish origin, do so in contact
with the Federation "so as to
avoid harmful divisions."
Another well-known Jewish
leader, Marcos Arbaitman, feels
that community leadership should
support one Jewish candidate
capable of being elected, in order
to avoid the dispersal and waste of
Jewish votes.
LEADERS OF the Sao Paulo
Hebraica, Bernardo Goldfarb, in-
tervened in the debate to state
that "The Jewish Federation is
not qualified to indicate
anybody," adding, "We have to
defend our interests vis-a-vis the

President Alleck A. Resnick
has announced that the Zionist
Organization of America will
conduct a grass roots cam-
paign in opposition to new
Saudi Arms sales proposals by
the U.S. Administration.
Resnick stated bluntly that the
Saudis "don't need" and
"don't deserve" the proposed
U.S. weaponry, which includes
the hand-held "Stinger*'
missile, described as an ideal
weapon for terrorists.
Said Resnick, "It is an in-
conceivable premise to believe
that any sales of sophisticated
weaponry scheduled for
delivery in 1989 and into the
1990's can secure Saudi
Arabia from the threat it
perceives in 1986. Such sales,
however, will add to an
already dangerous Saudi war
arsenal and can further in-
crease Saudi hostility to peace
with Israel.
Referring to repeated Saudi
requests for more and more
sophisticated weaponry,
Resnick cautioned the U.S.
Administration against fueling
a spiraling and uncontrollable
arms buildup amongst
unstable and totalitarian
states in the Middle East.
"The Saudis already possess
200 combat aircraft to Iran's
70's and Arab armies now can
field more tanks than all of
America's NATO allies com-
bined. Said Resnick, "It is time
to stop feeding the Kingdom's

struments of war until that

ouis Iacucci / Noted wine authority
Some wines are praised by authorities on wine. Some are praised by authorities on
Kosher law (Kashruth). But it seems that Carmel wines have managed to please
demanding critics of both persuasions.
Which is no surprise, considering Carmel's great viti-|
cultural heritage dates back to biblical times. A heritage
that's resulted in some truly notable wines, such as
our Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and our new
Cabernet Blanc. All with truly superb fragrance and
depth. As well as with a truly superb Kosher upbringing.
So whether you prefer vintage varietals or the tradi-
tional richness of sacramental wines, this holiday, why not
celebrate with Israel's finest wines?
After all, they've been getting rave
reviews for more than 5,000 years.

Seven residents of this
Arab town just east of
Petach Tikva have been ar-
rested for alleged terrorist
acts. The authorities believe
they are part of a wider net-
work of terrorist gangs af-
filiated with El Fatah.
They were taken into custody
recently in a mass crackdown on
terrorists mainly in Fast
Jerusalem and the administered
territories. The sweep was one of
the most successful by Israeli
security forces in recent years.
The gangs are held responsible for
a long series of bombings and
other acts of violence over a 20
month period.
THE KFAR Kassem suspects
are Israeli Arabs. They are charg-
ed, among other things, with plan-
ting a bomb in the Tel Aviv cen-
tral bus station it failed to ex-
plode and bombs in Bnei Brak
and Petach Tikva. The latter, con-
cealed among cooking gas con-
tainers, exploded causing damage
but no casualties. The gang also
tried to ambush a bus in the
Samaria district of the West
Israel Television reported last
week that several of the suspects
were recruited in Europe and
trained in Lebanon. Security of-
ficers reportedly found arms and
explosives in their homes. They
are charged, among other things,
with membership in an illegal
organization, military training
without permission, and intent to
sabotage and to kill.
Kfar Kassem is a town of about
9,500, just across the "green line"
from the West Bank. The arrests
were greeted with shock and
astonishment among the
residents. Many Arabs from Kfar
Kassem, work for Jewish
employers in nearby Petach Tikva
and they fear their jobs may be
jeopardize by the discovery of ter-
rorists in their midst.

Wednesday against casting blame
on the entire population, which
has always had good relations
with Jews. But there are bitter

Leading rabbis spoke of Feins-
tein's prodigious scholarship, and
stressed as well his piety, humility
and sense of mission. He made
himself accessible to all people
with problems seeking his counsel
and blessings; to young scholars
who needed clarification of dif-
ficult Talmudic passages; and to
seasoned rabbis who sought his
advice and opinion on complicated
halachic issues.
Offer Compromise
Version of
Anti-Racist Bill
Orthodox lobby in the Knesset,
opposed to a pending bill against
racism, has come up with a com-
promise version that would
outlaw acts against ethnic or
religious minorities without
specifically using the term racism.
The religious parties oppose the
"njrmal hill n grounds that its
broad formulations could be used
to prosecute religious dogmas and
practices. In that connection they
BOfe that halacha does, in a non-
rative sense, discriminate
against gentiles by positing a
Clear-cut distinction between Jews
a"d gentiles.
The anti-racism law is a direct
response to the philosophy and ac-
tlv'ties of Rabbi Meir Kahane's
extremist Kach Party, which ad-
vocates the expulsion of all Arabs
jrom Israel and the administered
territories, and would make inter-
marriage or intercourse between
Je*s and Arabs a criminal

Associates recalled Feinstein's
"hasmada" (diligence). He struc-
tured every minute of the day for
some scholarly pursuit, such as a
review of two chapters of
Mishnayos while folding his
tefillin straps. He reviewed the
Shulchan Aruch, the code of
Jewish law, more than 300 times
during his life.
Feinstein served as president of
Agudas Israel of America from
1966-1980 and had headed its
presidium since the early 1950's.
H" also headed the organization's
Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah (Coun-
cil of Torah Sages), which he
chaired since 1962; and was presi-
dent of the Agudas Harabbonim
(Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the
U.S. and Canada) from 1968 to
He was a member of the rab-
binical board of Torah Umesorah,
the National Society of Hebrew
Day Schools, of which he served
as vice president, and was a
member of the Board of Gover-
nors of Chinuch Atzmai/Torah
Schools for Israel.
Feinstein's prolific responsa to
halachic queries from all over the
Jewish world from 1950-75 were
published in the seven-volume
"Igroth Moshe" (Letters of
Moshe). He also published, bet-
ween 1948-79, 13 volumes of
Talmudic commentary, "Dibroth
Moshe" (Moshe's Statements).
Feinstein was born in 1895 in
Uzda, near Pinsk, Russia, and was
reared in an atmosphere of rab-
binic scholarship and responsibili-
ty. His father, Rabbi Dovid Feins-
tein, served as rabbi of Uzda for
25 years and then assumed the
rabbinate in Starobin, where he
served another 22 years. As a
young man, Moshe Feinstein
studied at the famed yeshiva of
Slutsk under Rabbi Issur Zalman
Meltzer, and later in Schklov
under Rabbi Pesach Pruskin.
Following his ordination in
1921, Feinstein assumed the rab-
binate in Luban, Russia, a position
he held until 1936. But for more
than 10 years he was under house
arrest in Luban for religious ac-
tivities. Nevertheless, he con-
tinued to gain international
renown as an outstanding
Talmudic scholar. Through
diplomatic intervention, he suc-
ceeded in obtaining an exit visa to
the U.S. in 1936.
On his arrival here the following
year, Feinstein was invited to
head the yeshiva Tifereth
Jerusalem on East Broadway on
the Lower East Side, then still a
flourishing center of Jewish life,
learning and culture. Tifereth
Jerusalem was a small school.
Under Feinstein's leadership it
grew, reaching its peak enroll-
ment of 800 students during the
