Demjanjuk Ordered Back in
Custody; 'Sufficient Evidence' Cited
Accused war criminal John
Demjanjuk was ordered
remanded in custody for a
further 15 days by
Jerusalem Chief Magistrate
Aharon Simcha, sitting in a
make-shift courtroom at the
Ayalon Prison in Ramie.
Demjanjuk, 66, the former
Ukrainian extradited to Israel
from the United States in
February, is suspected of being
the notorious prison guard, "Ivan
the Terrible," at the Treblinka
concentration camp during the
Simcha said that there was suf-
ficient evidence to warrant
holding Demjanjuk in prison pen-
ding his trial. His statement came
after he had asked police pro-
secutor Alex Ish-Shalom to com-
ment on media reports that the
Treblinka prison guard known as
"Ivan the Terrible" had been kill-
ed during an inmate uprising at
the death camp.
ISH-SHALOM described the
reports as imaginary, saying that
no single person had come for-
ward with proof that he himself
had taken part in the killing of the
prison guard or had been an actual
eye-witness to his alleged death.
"It is all hearsay evidence
and we have adequate proof to the
contrary that Demjanjuk is in-
deed the notorious Ivan," the
police official asserted.
Demjanjuk, asked if he had
anything to say, protested that
the proceedings were being car-
ried out in Hebrew and that he
had to rely on interpretation. The
judge promised him that a transla-
tion of the full transcript of the
proceedings would be made
available to his attorney.
DEMJANJUK'S attorney in
the U.S.. Mark O'Connor, was
present in the courtroom but did
not participate in the hearing, as
he has not yet received permission
to plead before an Israeli court.
The Israel Bar Association has
agreed to O'Connor's active ap-
pearance in court in view of his
lengthy service for his client
before U.S. courts, and the fact
that it might be difficult to find an
experienced Israeli lawyer ready
to defend a man charged with war
crimes against Jews. The Justice
Ministry is to act shortly on
O'Connor's request to represent
his client in court.
cerns of some local rabbis about
the seeming ethnic bent of her
campaign. "I am a grassroots can-
didate," she said. The word "our"
in her campaign ad which the
rabbis questioned means "the
people," she explained.
The ad, which appeared recently
in the Lake Worth Herald, the
Gold Coast Shoppers and Palm
Beach Jewish World, asked
readers to "vote for our voice in
the State Senate." Rabbi Bruce
Warshal, director of the South
County Jewish Federation, took
issue with Messinger. "In a
Jewish paper, it does mean the
Jewish people," he insisted.
Rabbi Theodore Feldman, presi-
dent of the Rabbinical Associa-
tion, had expressed his concern
over the campaign strategy, in a
discussion period during services
last Friday evening at his B'nai
Torah Congregation. Feldman
displayed Messinger's ad, and a
flyer from an independent source
soliciting "Christian candidates"
for the Palm Beach County School
Board race. "Which one is bet-
ter?" asked Rabbi Feldman.
The real issue, he emphasized, is
"who is qualified for office? Is
religious identity the sole
qualification? If that's the case,
we're in for sectarian warfare."
His bottom line was that labels are
dangerous. "One must seek the
substance beyond the labels.
Opponent Holds Financial
In her response Tuesday morn-
ing, Messinger stated that "our"
meant that she identified with the
majority of the people. "I don't
want to be an ethnic candidate,"
she emphasized, "but, unfor-
tunately, I will be." She asked the
rabbis not to be sensitive about
her approaching the Jewish com-
munity. "I need them ... I need
to gather to me all the groups that
I can." Messinger's opponent, in-
cumbent Don Childers, has
already raised $15,000 as of Jan.
1, she claimed. "I have to use
every weapon I can."
Additionally, Messinger found it
disturbing that the religious com-
munity wanted to remain
apolitical, in what she called
"dangerous times." She reminded
the rabbis that Florida has been
targeted as a state where the
Moral Majority will take over. Her
other concern was the historic
reluctance of the community to
unseat incumbents.
Messinger feels that Childers is
not capable of understanding the
issues. "At this critical time,
perhaps the public should analyze
more carefully who their present
legislators are, and who is running
Adele Messinger
for office, sne said. "I am a well-
qualified candidate not just
because I am Jewish."
Messinger's Credentials
Her credentials combine
humanistic and business skills.
Messinger is a former educator
and accountant who has gained
notoriety for her political activism
in South County over the past
seven years. A recent article in
The Miami Herald by political col-

Ghoulish German Parlor Game
Sends Jews Back To Death Camps
BONN (JTA) A grotesque, ghoulish parlor game
in which pawns representing Jews are sent to death camps
by the throw of dice, has resurfaced in West Germany and
the authorities seem determined to find the persons
Copies of the game sent recently to schools and other
institutions were postmarked in Darmstadt. The Hesse
public prosecutor has instituted proceedings against in-
dividuals still unknown.
THE GAME IS called Jude Aergre Dich Nicht (Jew, do
not get angry). It first appeared in 1984, drawing expres-
sions of outrage from the Jewish community and public
figures here and abroad. A man and a woman accused of
devising the game were brought to trial. But a court in
Zweibruecken, Saarland, acquitted them for lack of
evidence. The Jewish community called the verdict
"beyond understanding."
This time, the Hesse authorities have assured Jewish
leaders they will do everything possible to bring those
responsible to justice. Like the original game, the new one
consists of a board with six pawns, each representing one
million Jews. The players cast dice to move the pawns to
squares labeled with the names of notorious death camps.
- Sens. Gary Hart (D.,
Colo.) and Bennett Johnston
(D., La.) cancelled scheduled
visits to the Middle East last
week, which were to include
a stop in Israel, after the
Reagan Administration urg-
ed that members of Con-
gress "reassess" their
travel plans to the region.
A State Department official
told a press briefing for foreign
reporters that the advisory to
Congressional officials was in
response to recent threats by Li-
byan leader Muammar Khadafy
that he would launch a wave of
terrorism against Americans in
the region.
BUT THE Administration's ad-
visory amounted to a "weakening
of the American resolve to resist
terrorism," according to a state-
ment issued by Kenneth Bialkin,
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
"The interruption of foreign
travel is exactly what terrorists
want and the surrender ti ter-
rorist threats gives them the vic-
tory they seek," Bialkin asserted.
Hart announced that he was
Sen. Gary Hart
cancelling his trip to Israel, Egypt
and Jordan after he was advised
by Administration sources that
the visit would "divert limited
security resources." The State
Department acknowledged that it
had advised Congressional
members and their staffs to
"reassess" whether their trips to
the Middle East were necessary at
this time, but denied having
directly requested that such visits
be cancelled.
THE OFFICIALS who briefed
foreign reporters said that "we've
all heard the threats issued by Col.
Khadafy, and we have suggested
to them that we think real careful-
ly about whether travel to the
region at this time is essential or
whether they would consider
postponing it."
State Department spokesman
Charles Redman, however, at an
earlier briefing, stressed that the
Administration's request only
related to visits by members of
Congress and that no general
travel advisory had been issued.
Redman said that "a fairly large
number" of Congressmen and
staff members had planned to
travel to the Middle East during
the Easter recess.
Hart planned to fly to Israel on
a trip that was to include Egypt
and Jordan. Johnston, who was to
travel with Hart to Israel on the
first leg of the separate Middle
East tour, also cancelled his plans.

Representatives, however. w>re

Siemens Jewish Campus
Design Complete
Schwab and Twitty Architects, Inc.
have completed the design for the
Richard and Carole Siemens Jewish Cam-
pus. The project, which incorporates six
buildings and a total of 153,700 square
feet is located on a 28-acre site on U.S.
441. just one-half mile south of Glades
Road in Boca Raton.
The campus will serve members of the
Jewish community from preschool
through retirement. It includes a
6500-square-foot Family Services
Building, a 14,500-square-foot building to
house the South County Jewish Federa-
tion offices, a 54,000-square-foot Day
School, plus three buildings which com-
prise the Adolph and Rose Levis Jewish
Community Center, including a
13,700-square-foot office facility, a
27,000-square-foot Health and Physical
Education Building, and the
'{5,000-square-foot Community Activities
and Cultural Building.
I ne buildings are linked by 20-foot-
widc pedestrian walkway system and a
smtral atrium The barrel vaults covering
the walkways and the covered octagon-
shaped central atrium will be fashioned of
a space-age teflon-coated translucent
fab-.c rather than glass or plexiglass. The
supports for the walkway system and the
atrium will be brilliant red.
The mall or campus format creates ur-
ban spaces and reduces the distances bet-
ween buildings. There is a great deal of
interaction between buildings with the
walkways serving as gathering places
rnere will be seating areas in the
walkways plus extensive vegetation and
water features. The central atrium area is
envisioned as a meeting area, a congrega-
tion space for major events, such as art
shows. The architecture and site plan ac-
commodate the goal of mingling people of
all ages.
Counseling services for all in need will
be provided for in the Jewish Family Ser-
vices Building. The Day School will pro-

Israeli Chef Visits Boca With Passover Recipes
Executive Chef Victor Azoulay,
from Jerusalem, was in Boca
Raton last week to visit family.
Azoulay, most recently of the
Ramada Renaissance in
Jerusalem, was for a long time
chef at the King David Hotel,
eventually becoming the ex-
ecutive chef there. He later served
as the executive chef at the
Moriah Hotel too.
Victor Azoulay was born in
Morocco. His family relocated to
Israel in 1953 with a Youth Aliyah
program when he was 14. He
turned to cooking at age 16 when
his father died. Victor, being the
oldest child, became the head of a
household of 10, living on a small
moshav (agricultural village) in
the Negev.
Farming would not sustain the
large family. At the Department
of Labor in Beersheba, from a list
of available trades, Azoulay ear-
marked "cooking." He had never
had a prior experience or an in-
terest in the profession. Soon he
was enrolled in the Tadmor Hotel
School, Israel's only post secon-
dary school for the hospitality
field, where he now lectures
The chef has accumulated
numerous awards over the years.
He treasures his 1972 acceptance
as a member of the Confrerie de la
Chaine des Rotisseurs with the ti-
tle of "Maitre Rotisseur." Also
very important to him are the
three International Culinary Art
Competitions held from 1980
through 1984, in which he
represented his homeland.
Below, are a few of Azoulay's
special Passover recipes,
guaranteed to make this year's
seder even more memorable.

Rabbi David H. Chanofsky/Monsey Jewish Center
Louis lacucci /Noced 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.

The Paul Greenberg Column
From a Columnist's Notebook
Oh Yes, the UN: The reaction of
the globocrats at the United Na-
tions to the Waldheim Affair.
besides trying to avoid any com-
ment on it, has been a mixture of
dismay, resentment, and defen-
siveness. A number of unnamed
UN officials have been quoted as
feeling "betrayed" and "misled"
by their former secretary general,
who for 40 years kept mum about
his record in the Balkans.
"I, like everyone else, was
under the impression that his ar-
my career ended in 1942," says
Brian Urquhart, who served as
undersecretary-general at the UN
when Kurt Waldheim was top
man, adding: "Everything that is
coming out now is an unpleasant
surprise. I simply don't know if
these allegations are true."
Francois Guiliani, a UN
spokesman who worked with Dr.
Waldheim for six years,
remembers that, although "the
question of Waldheim's past and
possible connection with the Nazi
movement came up regularly
while he was secretary general, he
always rejected and denied those
A French delegate, Claude de
Kamoularia, seemed concerned to
put some distance between the
UN and these revelations.
"Whatever is true or not about
Waldheim," he said, "should not
be linked with the UN Just
because the United Nations
Paul Greenberg
bureaucracy never found out
about its leader's past, he seemed
to be saying, why should that af-
fect people's opinion of its
thoroughness in the future?
Even sadder was the reaction
from those UN staffers who
feared that these revelations
might damage the UN's credibili-
ty as if it still had enough to be
damaged. They didn't seem to
realize that Kurt Waldheim didn't
have to be a Nazi to preside over
the deterioration of the UN from
faded dream to actual menace
during his tenure; not every moral
mediocrity needs a party card.
Dept. of Doublespeak: Libya's
Colonel Mad-affy now has
declared victory over the United
States and announced that he will
seek revenge for it. You figure it
out. Maybe you had to be there to
understand his latest speech,
which from this distance seemed
to have all the coherence of an Ed-
ward Albee play. The colonel's
oratory comes out of the theater
of the absurd, and his term for the
new border he drew across the
Mediterranean (The Line of
Death) could have come out of a
bad comic book.
It would all have been kind of
funny if a lot of Libyan sailors
following their leader's orders
hadn't had to die for his
megalomania. Colonel Mad-affy
brings to mind the French general
in the First World War of whom it
was said that he accompaniewd
his troops only on the piano. Note
that the Libyan leader didn't go to
sea himself; they say he's crazy
but that crazy he isn't.
Not to be outdone in the
Doublespeak department, the
Stalinistas' junta in Nicaragua
now has explained that its troops
didn't invade Honduras but rather
attacked bases there as a
"defense measure" justified by
"the norms of international law."

The Dark at the Top of The Stairs
Has Relevance, Jewish and Universal
Theater Review
By Yaaeov Loria
The setting is an oil boom town
in Oklahoma in the 1920s. Cora
and Rubin Flood have been mar-
ried for 17 years and have a
daughter, 16 and a son, 10. A
traveling harness salesman.
Rubin is rarely at home. He is an
absentee husband and father in
more than one sense. They seem
mismated: Rubin drinks,
philanders and abuses hiw wife.
Cora, sensitive and love-starved,
is obsessively protective of her
children, Renee and Sonny. Renee
loses herself in playing sad music
on the piano; Sonny escapes the
dreariness by absorbing himself in
pictures of movie stars. It's hardly
a happy household.
Are you tempted to say, "Who
needs it? I have troubles of my
own." Not this time. William Inge
manages to make this family mat-
ter very much to us in The Dark at
the Top of the Stairs, the Mizner
Festival play ending the current
season at the Caldwell Playhouse.
It is almost a real life experience
for us. Vicariously we enter the
Flood home and hang on the out-
come of each situation in the play:

Inge introduces a Jewish
character into this play with
deliberate intention. Even if we

from the memory of his own
youth, he could still have chosen
to make Renee's date any young
man from the nearby military
school. The name of the play of
fers a clue as to what Inge had in
mind. We are all afraid, we all
need reassurance that there is no
mysterious evil lurking to destroy
us. The fear of the marginal per

quite belong to the group, was the
sick core of Nazism. But it is a
universal sickness. Even in this
drowsy town close to the center of
the American heartland, the virus
which infected the Germans ia

Semitic slur at the party which
gives Sammy Goldenbaum, the
brilliant young half-Jew, the final
push to suicide. It is the inclusion
of anti-Semitism, the ultimate
mark of insecurity, which gives
Inge's play a dimension of
There is still another issue that
the play raises, that of women's
rights. In the 1950s feminism
seemed a dead cause. Women had
been given the vote in 1920. Dur-

ed to do men's work in defense

A New Israeli Energy-Efficient Tractor
Israel has developed an in-
novative energy-efficient tractor
the Merhav, which borrows
part of its state-of-the-art
technology from America's lunar
probe. Unconventional in its
design and concept, the Merhav is
six meters wide and 1.8 meters
high and employs sophisticated
electronic and computer systems
that enable it to perform
numerous tasks on the farm with
improved operational
maneuverability and cost-

tillage approach" was conducted

The Aferaat- tractor's unique
wide-frame design is intended to
sovle the problem of "soil compac-
tion" damage to soil by heavy
tractor wheels that has long
plagued Israeli farmers and
threatens agricultural crops
around the world. The soil bet-
ween the Merhav's wide wheels
remains untouched, minimizing
compaction, and the tractor s
platform carries equipment above
the soil, thereby avoiding un-
necessary soil damage.
In contrast, conventional trac-
tors compress the earth,
necessitating plowing, and often
leading to soil erosion and deple-
tion. (In a related response to this
widespread problem, the U.S.
Congress recently passed legisla-

part as a volunteer with her husband in
previous years, and came this year even
though her husband was hospitalized for

Nathan Rothstein.
This gives us another opportunity to
thank these people along with all the other
volunteers including, we are sure, a few
others who did not point out the omission
of their names.
Incidentally, in most cases the omissions occur
because the kind volunteers went straight to work

Jewish History Drama Made
Available To The Public
A dramatic look at Jewish
history, entitled "Judaism: Its
Past and Future," was staged last
Tuesday at Temple Beth El as a
joint venture between the temple
and the South County Jewish
The creative venture, which
conveyed Jewish history through
a series of narrative readings,
received such positive response
that the producer/director, Steven
Kolber, said he would like to make
this presentation available to
other groups and organizations.
Kolber, an electrical engineer
for IBM, said he would like to
develop and perfect the program
as a kit, giving more and larger
audiences exposure to both
history and dramatic theater, and
to the message of the production
to safeguard the future.
In addition, Kolber saw the pro-
gram as serving as a liaison func-
tion between two organizations
and he would like to encourage
similar usage of the program for
the future.
Federation Campaign director
Harvey Grossman praised the
"... dedicated group of people"
who worked with Kolber and
"... who obviously put their
hearts into it." He particularly
cited Linda and Steven Melcer,
co-chairs of the event, who attend-
ed to all of the evening's details
and assisted in this "dignified

'Silent no more'
Soviet Jewry update
A Visit to RussiaPart HI
other tourists was able to board
the plane, but one: me. I was de-
tained for a while, then came out
to find my luggage all dumped.
They were basically telling me:
"we know why you were here, we
wanted your hard currency, but
we don't have to treat you
well. ."
To finish, I must mention one
thing, which you may have heard
before. When our plane passed in-
to Finland's air space, and the
captain announced this, every
passenger applauded in obvious
relief. .
It was one of the better trips I
have ever taken; not only because
of the sense of priorities and U^
understanding of the Soviet .W
problem, but also because of tj,
appreciation of our country whS
I gained. *"
Postscript: the Leningrad
woman of whom I told you is now
living in Israel, for the past W
years it turned out she wM
strictly a legitimate refusenik
Editor's Note: This is the third
and last part of the story by
Steven Bloom, formerly of
Cleveland, about his visit to the
USSR on behalf of the NCSJ the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry. Bloom, a real estate and
mortgage executive, is a personal
witness to the effectiveness and
need of writing writing the
refuseniks, the government in the
USSR, and our own
government. .
My Moscow experience was in-
credible and I learned that the
KGB's surveillance was quite
close. Every time I left my room I
returned to learn it had been
checked. My gentile friend the at-
torney and I, every time we
wanted to talk about what we had
seen or my plans for the next day,
we went into the bathroom, turn-
ed on the faucets in the shower
and tub and communicated that
way so the bugs would't get us. .
Each room was bugged, even
though all were not being
monitored at any given time.
But it was not just the secret
police one would know at all
times that "big brother was wat-
ching you." Every floor at every
hotel had a "Key-lady" to whom
you would turn in your key when
leaving, and from whom you'd col-
lect it when returning to the
room. If you should get back late
at night, she would begin to in-
quire where you were and why
you were late; if you were to bring
a guest to your room, she would
interrogate them thoroughly and
would have to give her approval.
It was an uncomfortable en-
vironment for all of us, but most
of all for those who were not simp-
ly there to see the sights.
After Moscow, we went to Kiev,
on a domestic Russian airline
quite different from the planes
one is used to travel in, both in ap-
pearance and the safety features
... I managed to be among the
first to board, and took a seat near
the front (where it is warmer;
temperatures outside were
-24 .). But a relatively high-
ranking military officer came on
board and decided he wanted my
seat and before I knew it two
brawny guys grabbed my arms,
and pulled me to the back of the
I sat down and leaned back, only
to have the back of the seat col-
lapse into the lap of the man
behind me. Meanwhile, the man in
the seat in front of me also col-
lapsed into my lap And that
was not the unusual type of thing,
I learned.
In Kiev I met a couple of
"average Joe" families, one
related to a family of Soviet im-
migrants I knew in Cleveland,
who wanted to leave the Soviet
Union for simple, non-idealistic
reasons like the better medical
care they could get elsewhere for
their old father who was suffering
from Parkinson's Disease But
also because the older folks were
telling the "youngsters" the
ones my age how nice it would
be to live in a free land and prac-
tice being Jewish.
In Leningrad I was to meet with
a young woman who taught
. 'Uah in the school system, and
.Vbd gotten to the National
ouncil for Soviet Jewry that she
night be "working both sides,"
that is, pretending to be a
refusenik and giving information
to the KGB. I was to try to get an
impression of how true this might
As it turned out, she provided
me with the best portion of my
tour: she spoke English fluently,
she knew her way around and was
able to take me to places I would
otherwise never have seen, yet
she could pass herself off as an
Englishwoman. In the two-and-a-
half days my attorney friend and I
spent with her she took us to meet
several refusenik families.
On the last evening she invited
the two of us to visit her apart-
ment, but as we were walking
there, around 2 a.m., two black
cars pulled up suddenly ob-
viously not innocent Soviet
citizens who just happened to be
driving around She suggested
that we split three different ways,
which we did, but the agents
decided, for some reason, to grab
me. They began yelling at me and
ask questions. I had been briefed
that if I were to be detained, the
agents on this level are not
necessarily the smarter ones or
most secure; therefore, I was not
to show any fear but to yell right
back at them. Which I did, even
though I was scared to death .
But it helped. They held me for
about 10 to 15 minutes, then let
me go.
By this time, I had accomplished
everything I was supposed to, and
had no further contact with
refuseniks or the KGB until it was
time to leave. At that time, when I
got to the airport, every one of the
Delta Air Lines and its 39,000 professionals
extend best wishes to you and your family.
May your Passover season be filled with happiness.

Jewish Community Day School
Two Schools The New And The Old
It has been my good fortune to
observe two quality schools from
an intimate perspective: I am
presently the Board chairman of
the South County Jewish Com-
munity Day School; I had the good
fortune to be a student at Boston
Latin School.
Boston is known as the "Athens
of America" due to its abundance
of many fine universities and
other cultural institutions.
Despite the presence of Harvard,
MIT and Brandeis the proper
Bostonian knows that the care of
Boston's cultural mystique is the
"Latin School." Founded before
Harvard, Boston Latin School is
in its 350th year! The school's
standards represent a goal few
schools, private or public, have
I recall being asked to leave a
classroom when I was in the Sixth
Grade. A member of the Boston
School Board asked an awed little
kid if he would like to attend the
Latin School ... An interested
and kind teacher had recommend-
ed me. I recall saying: "yes sir,"
and thus began my adventure in
I shall refer to the Latin School
as BLS. It is a public school, and
attendance was usually achieved
by an entrance examination.
Alumni of BLS have a very special
relationship that is carried on to
late in life. It has been my
privilege to meet BLS alumni in
many localities. Typically, I have
had meetings with Colonel Ed
Gallup, manager of the William
Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, and
Harvard representatives for that
city. I was delighted to greet
Bishop John Wright, a former
classmate, when he came to Pitt-
sburgh. John subsequently went
to Rome as Cardinal Wright. BLS
The Day School also has a
wonderful advantage in its
remedial program. Of course the
secular aspect of the Day School is
important to many, but the
knowledge of an ancient and still
vibrant heritage is also highly
The existence of quality public
and private schools in many parts
of the country is recognition of the
fact that excellence is to be nur-
tured and encouraged. I believe
that as the Day School grows and
matures, its philosophy of ex-
cellence will make its students
have the same pride and respect
for their school as the students of
the venerable Boston Latin
Arnold Rosenthal
graduates are famous in many
fields; I can quickly think of Ben
Franklin and Leonard Bernstein.
Latin of course was the required
discipline at BLS. How I wish I
had studied Hebrew for six years!
Recently, some members of
Boston'b black community made
an appeal for the standards of
BLS to be relaxed so more blacks
could attend. At the school's
350th commencement, the presi-
dent of Boston University stated
that to do so would be self-
defeating, as there would no
longer be any incentive to attend
"a lesser BLS." It was also
pointed out that some blacks had
successfully passed entrance
Far from 350 years old, the
South County Jewish Community
Day School is in its seventh year
. But I find many similarities
with BLS. One is the attention
given to an ancient classic
language; another is the ex-
cellence of the faculty and the em-
phasis on quality in the various

She is adamant that people be

The composition of her advisory

'I Run Israeli Cabinet,' Peres
Says At 'Photo Opportunity'
WASHINGTON (JTA) Israeli Premier Shimon
Peres does not apparently have the desire for exercise
displayed by so many American governmental leaders.
At a "photo opportunity" during his meeting with Vice
President George Bush at the White House last Tuesday,
Bush was heard telling Peres about his tennis game.
Bush asked Peres whether he plays tennis, and when
the response was negative he asked the Premier if he jogs
or does any other exercise since he looks so fit. "I run the

the future of the West Bank is
"like a civil war being fought
without firing a shot," and the
ultimate victor is likely to be Jor-
dan, a researcher at the Harry S.
Truman Institute for the Ad-
vancement of Peace at the
Hebrew U. indicated in a lecture
Hillel Frisch, co-author of a
book with Shmuel Sandier on
"Israel, the Palestinians, and the
West Bank," said that while the
majority of Palestinians in the
West Bank speak of their loyalty
to the PLO, the latter ultimately
lacks the resources to provide
substantial political gains for the
Palestinian population.
The Palestinians in the West
Bank have concentrated in recent
years on developing politicized
public-service oriented institu-
tions health delivery systems,
sports clubs, nurseries, and a
student-led political elite that
on the surface appear to be pro-
viding the foundation for a state-
in-formation. However, this
development is up against power
ful forces specifically, both
Israel and Jordan which do not
want to see an independent
Palestinian state established.
"Providing the goods" for peo-
ple institutionally requires money
and power beyond the capability
of the West Bank Palestinians
themselves, Frisch said. He ex-
pressed his belief that the political
elite now developing at the col-
leges on the West Bank will
ultimately "take over" the PLO
there, but that this elite will be
forced to link up with Jordan in
order to be able to continue its
"The basic problem of the PLO"
in the West Bank, said Frisch, is
that "they are demanding more
than their power will allow them
(to accomplish)."
Judges in America are part and
parcel of the "democratic
dialogue" in American society and
in many instances faithfully repre-
sent the "popular will." more than

official role.
Prof. Norman Redlich, dean of
the New York School of Law. said
this at the international con-
ference on the Role of Courts in
Society, held at the Hebrew I of
Dean Redlich, who spoke on
"judges as instruments of
democracy," said judges in the
American judicial system are in-
fluenced by developments in socie-
ty and are very much part of the
realities of life that occur around
The conference attracted about
200 lawyers and judges from 12
nations. It was sponsored by the
Hebrew U. Law Faculty and the
New York University School of
Law in cooperation with the
American Friends of the Hebrew
University, the Israel Ministry of
Justice, the Israel Bar Association
and the International Association
of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists.
Keynote speaker at the con-
ference was U.S. Supreme Court
Justice Harry A. Blackmun, who
was named an honorary fellow of
the Hebrew U. by president Prof.
Don Patinkin. Also present at the

Minister Moshe Nissim and the

News In Brief ...
Israel, Austria Given
Access to UN Files
files on Kurt Waldheim, stored at
the United Nations archives were
made available to Israel and
Austria on Wednesday, Israeli
and UN officials said Monday.
Israel requested access to the
files last Friday and Austria made
its request Monday. Waldheim,
who served as UN Secretary
General from 1972-81 and is runn-
ing for the presidency of Austria
in next month's elections, has
been widely accused of having
participated in war crimes while
MT-ving as a Wehrmacht officer in
the Balkans during World War II.
The request by Austria was
made by that country's Am-
bassadors to the U.S. and UN,
Thomas Klestil and Karl Fischer,'
respectively, in a leter sent Mon-
day to UN Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cuellar. A UN of-
ficial said arrangements have
been made for dealing with the re-
quests. According to the official,
representatives of Israel and
Austria will be allowed to make
copies of the files.
IDF Planes Bomb
Terrorist Targets
TEL AVIV Israel Air Force
planes bombed terrorist targets in
the Sidon area of south Lebanon
Monday and returned safely to
their bases, a military spokesman
announced. He said the targets
were training bases and head-
quarters buildings of El Fatah,
the terrorist arm of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, and of
George Habash's Popular Front
for the Liberation of Palestine, a
group that broke away from the
PLO years ago.
Beirut radio reported five sor-
ties by the Israeli bombers on
targets in the Miamia and Ein
Hilwe refugee camps near Sidon.
According to Beirut radio, am-
bulances were seen rushing to the
scene. The radio reported five
Three terrorists captured in the
south Lebanon security zone two
weeks ago while attempting to in-
filtrate Israel were trained at the
i'ases raided Monday, the military
spokesman said. They were
described as deserter, from the
Syrian army.
Most Israelis Want
Coalition to Continue
TEL AVIV A majority of
Israelis want the Labor-Likud uni-
ty coalition to continue on the
basis of the rotation of power
agreement under which Premier
Shimon Peres will turn over his
office to Likud leader Yitzhak
Shamir next Oct. 13, according to
a public opinion poll taken by the
Hanoch and Rafi Smith Research
Center, published Monday.
But the same poll found that
Israelis, by a 61-29 percent
margin, saw reasons that would
justify breaking up the coalition.
Among the respondents, 54 per-
cent favored the rotation of power
agreement, up from 47 percent in
a poll conducted last August
Nineteen percent would like to see
the coalition continue under the
leadership of Peres, down from 24
percent in August.
Only five percent preferred a
narrow coalition headed by Peres
down from six percent in August!
Maryland Legislature
Honors Refusenlk Begun
Maryland House of Delegates in
Annapolis last Thursday issued a
proclamation honoring Soviet
Jewish refusenik Iosif Begun "for
his ability to endure extreme cir-
cumstances and duress."
Delegate Marilyn Goldwater (D
Montgomery) had proposed the
proclamation in the lower house of
the Maryland legislature at the
suggestion of Jon Cohen, a senior
at the University of Maryland,
College Park.
Cohen has petitioned John Toll
president of the university, to
grant Begun an honorary doc-
torate in Hebrew studies in absen-
tia at the university's May com-
mencement. House Speaker Ben-
jamin Cardin (D., Baltimore), who
enabled the petition to be brought
up on the crowded House calen-
dar, also urged that an honorary
degree be granted.
Begun, a 54-year-old engineer
was one of several Moscow
refusenik Hebrew teachers when
he was arrested for anti-Soviet
agitation and propaganda in 1982.
He was sentenced to seven years
in prison and five years internal
"In America, Hebrew teachers
get tenure," Cohen noted. "In the
Soviet Union, Hebrew teachers
get 10 years."

range of other housing options, "the
whole ambiance of South County will con-

Levy's involvement with the work of
the Federation is a multi-generational
phenomenon. His father, Robert, became
involved as a supporter of the Miami
Federation and his younger brother,
Harry A. "Hap" Levy, was the General
Campaign chairman and president of the
Miami Federation. Following their
models, Levy "went with my brother and
started to get involved and have never
ceased that involvement." For him, the
work allows him to "get things done."
Community work is a family activity and
Levy's wife, Beatrice has joined him with
her involvement in a wide range of com-
munal projects, as well.
The Levy saga of communal involve-
ment continues into a third generation.
Levy is quite proud of his eldest son,
Mark, who is a vice president of the Fort
Lauderdale Federation and has chaired
the Builders Division of their campaign.
His two daughters, JoAnn and Allison,
and daughter-in-law, JoAnn, are all
becoming involved in Federation work. In
fact, his youngest daughter, Allison, met
her fiancee, Dr. Jack Sacks, on a Young
Leadership Mission to Israel.
Levy's interests span the spectrum
from Federation to Jewish Education and
Jewish Family Service. He served as the
first Chairman of the Study Committee
for the Jewish High School in Miami and
went on to chair the Board of that
organization and continues, today, as the
honorary Chairman of the Board. Addi-
tionally, he serves as the chairman of the
Personnel Committee of the South Coun-
ty Jewish Federation and is one of its vice
presidents, sitting on the Board and Ex-
ecutive Committee.
Levy believes that strengthening
Jewish education is one of the most im-
portant things that can be done to
strengthen Jewish continuity in South
County. He is excited about plans for the
expanded Day School on the new campus.
He is hopeful that the students will "have
a chance to learn something and go on
and become even more Jewishly
Levy has indicated that he feels very
strongly about the need for the Capital
Campaign. He summed up his perspective
by noting that "having the central ad-
dress for the Federation is very impor-
tant and the fact that ail the agencies will
be on one campus makes the task even
more significant." He concluded the in-
terview with his belief "I really think
that it will work."

In the absence of a written con-

heavy reliance on the courts. "The

said Peres, while at the same time
refraining from interfering in the

Prof. Ruth Gavison of the

Thought for
the Day
A man lay dying in a far-away
hotel and with his last strength, he
said to a stranger who roomed
with him, "Here, take this
$10,000, send to my wife whatever
you want and the rest you may
keep." Later on, the stranger sent
a thousand dollars to the wife and
kept $9,000 for himself. The wife
sued the stranger, claiming that
surely her husband could not have
intended to impoverish her. The
matter came before a court and the
decision was as follows: "The hus-
band meant that you should send
to the wife that which you wanted,
namely the nine thousand dollars.
The rest, namely the thousand,
you can retain for your troubles."
We may give to charitis and to
our fellow humans whatever we
want; there can be no compulsion.
But true goodness is only where we
truly give to others what we want
for ourselves.

Weekend Family Retreat At Temple Beth El
Friday, April 18, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 15
Top Reform Educator Decries Neglect of T
As Jews, we are so absorbed in
thinking only of Jewish
peoplehood, that we actually
neglect the plight of the individual
who may be seeking Jewish iden-
tification, said Rabbi Howard
Bogot at Temple Beth El last Sun-
day. Speaking to a Brotherhood
Breakfast, Bogot's lecture was
part of a study weekend at the
temple entitled "Who Am I? What
Am I?" sponsored by the
Bogot said that for "... all the
right and understandable
reasons," Jews have expended
their time in concern for the
Jewish People and have not
devoted enough time to thinking
about the individual Jew. His
travels around the country reveal-
ed the extent of the problem: "My
brothers and sisters feel they are
a minority. They are not sure of
who they are."
Bogot's professed goal was to
sensitize his audience to the dilem-
ma of the Jew alone. "We have to
figure out how to help the Jew
who has no other Jews about him
- how to help him feel confident
and fulfilled as a Jewish
To prove his point that the odds
are stacked against the Jewish in-
dividual, Bogot displayed the
Reform Movement's prayer book
as evidence of Jewish pluralistic
thinking. He noted that the prayer
book, with the exception of 16
paragraphs, always alludes to
"the Jewish people." The 16
paragraphs are primarily original
meditations, with a few Psalms
that include the word "I."
Bogot, who is the director of
education for the Union of
Hebrew Congregations, lamented
the Reform Movement's limited
attention to programming for the
individual Jew. "We must change
He whipped out his sample pro-
posal for the 70 participants a
list of categories, the adherence to
which would enable the Jewish in
dividual "... to look in the mirror
and see that he personifies the im-
age of G-d."

Imitation: "I am the image of G-d
when I integrate skills, insights
and experience in order to ap-

present and plan for the future."
In conclusion, Bogot shared his
definition of a Jew with the group:
"A Jew for me is a Jewish in-
dividual, who accepts as an in-
dividual, that he or she is the im-
age of G-d, and acts out the image
of G-d" (as listed above).
Is The Painted Egg
Christian Or Jewish?
Special to the South
County Jewish Federation
Coloring eggs and hiding them for children to find may just be
an old Jewish tradition according to Rabbi Howard Bogot, direc-
tor of education at the UAHC. Supporting his premise was a
Jewish encyclopedia and several participants in a retreat last
Saturday at Temple Beth El in Boca Raton.
Rabbi Bogot, told a group of 35 people attending a study
workshop last weekend entitled "Who Am I? What Am I?" of his
accidental discovery.
Under "egg" in a Jewish encyclopedia Rabbi Bogot spotted this
strange old Latvian custom practiced during the little known
festival of Lag B'Omar, the 33rd day after Passover and before
Shavuot. When discussing its authenticity with an older orthodox
rabbi, this rabbi surprisingly told Rabbi Bogot he could remember
practicing the custom as a small child in Latvia. But, as an adult,
his Israeli wife forbade him to practice this "Christian" custom.
The orthodox rabbi confided to Rabbi Bogot that his Latvian fami-
ly had considered it a custom of Jewish origins, not of Christian
"But that is the question?" Rabbi Bogot told his fascinated au-
dience. "Which egg came first? Did Easter eggs come from Lag
B'Omar eggs or did Lag B'Omar eggs come from Easter eggs?"
Diaspora Jewish life has adapted to its surroundings. A well
known example, Rabbi Bogot mentioned, would be the Pasover
seder song Chad Gadya. The melody was taken from a popular
German ballad and introduced into the Haggada by German Jews.
Elijah's cup originated from the 12th century custom of leaving a
full goblet on the lord of the castle's table as a sign of hospitality.
"To coin a phrase, this is the spiritual eclecticism of Judaism,"
said the rabbi. Loosely translated, this means the ability of our
Jewish culture to inject the practical into the spiritual and make it
uniquely ours. It is this spirit that influences Reform Judaism.
Of course, he said, it works the other way too. Many Gregorian
chants from the medieval Catholic church stem from ancient
Hebrew melodies.
Suddenly a hand shot up from the audience and a man spoke for
his wife who was too timid to speak. "My wife told me for years
about the eggs she dyed as a young girl with her Latvian mother.
Her family always did this to celebrate Lag B'Omar." Then the
older woman spoke for herself. "Once I watched a group of
American women of Christian Latvian descent dying and
decorating eggs at Easter exactly the way we did it on Lag
B'Omar. I was too embarrassed to mention that my Jewish family
did it too. I assumed from then on it was a Christian custom we
had picked up in Latvia."
"Not necessarily," interjected another man. "My family was
from Spain, and we dyed eggs on Lag B'Omar also."
So, which egg came first?
"You notice the chicken has been left out of this issue," joked
Rabbi Bogot. "The rabbis at UAHC are researching this question
and we'll have to let them decide. And in the meantime, please
don't quote me!"
