Former Nazis Worked For United States
The Justice Department
admitted that convicted Nazi
war criminal Robert Jan
Verbelen worked for the U.S.
Army's Counter Intelligence
Corps in Vienna from 1946 to
1956, as did at least 13 other
active members or collabor-
ators of the Nazi Party and SS.
The department made public
the results of a formal investi-
gation, initiated by a request
from the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, into
whether the U.S. government
protected and assisted
Verbelen, who now lives in
The report also provides
descriptions of the 13 others,
but does not name them at the
request of the Central Intellig-

Elliot Welles, who
heads ADL's task force on
Nazi war criminals, said he is

names as a "matter of prin-
A copy of the report was
forwarded to the Austrian
fovernment, according to Neal
her, director of the Justice
Department's Office of Special
Investigations, who co-wrote
the report.
The report does not ask
Austria to retry Verbelen, now
77, who was convicted in 1965
of two murders during World
War II. He was later acquitted
on the grounds that he had
been carrying out orders from
The Austrian Supreme
Court overturned that
acquittal, but never
retried him. Verbelen had

Emigration Policy Impact Diminished
Changes in Soviet emigration
policy have diminished the
impact of the Israeli Cabinet's
decision to extend visas only to
those Soviet Jews intent on
making aliyah, according to
Jewish organizations and
resettlement agencies in the
United States.
Although leaders of the
three largest organizations
that deal with the problem say
they remain committed to the
concept of "freedom of choice"
and opposed to coercion, they
add that recent Soviet willing-
ness to honor invitations from
relatives in the United States
leaves open an alternative exit
route for emigres.
ORT International College To Open In Galilee
Schrager, of Women's Amer-
ican ORT, appointed chairman
of the drive in the U.S.
The Braude International
Institute is located in western
Galilee in the town of Karmiel,
the hub of Israel's high-tech
"Region 2000." The new ORT
Institute will play a vital role
in providing skilled manpower
for the industrial and technolo-
gical enterprises increasingly
moving to the region.
An added dimension of the
institute is its international
character. The school is
planned as a magnet to attract
the best Diaspora students. It
will be a fully "integrated"
campus with foreign and
Israeli students studying side
by side, promoting kinship in
the midst of cultural diversity.
Former Israel president and
scientist Professor Ephraim
Katzir, currently president of
ORT, the Organization for
Rehabilitation Through
Training's newest campus, the
Braude International Institute
of Technology in Karmiel,
Israel, is scheduled to open its
doors for enrollment this
coming October.
The institute will offer up-to-
date technological education in
computers, electronics, robo-
tics, energy studies, bio-
technology, electro-optics, and
the pure sciences. Languages,
Jewish education, and
academic disciplines will round
out the curriculum. A two-year
course of study will lead to an
associate degree in engin-
eering, while a one-year
"study abroad" option will be
available to foreign students.
A worldwide student recruit-
ment campaign has been
launched, with Carol
the World ORT Union,
explains that it is hoped that a
link will be forged between the
Israeli students and those
from the Diaspora. "The
students will bring with them
the culture and outlook of their
own Jewish communities and
come away with what we hope
will be a sense of common
ideals and aspirations," states
Prof. Katzir.
Mrs. Schrager has called
upon all communities across
the United States to exert
their utmost effort and send at
least one student so that a
geographically balanced
contingent attends the Insti-
tute its first year. Inquiries for
a catalog and application
should be sent to Women's
American Ort, 315 Park
Avenue South, New York, NY
10010, Att: P. Feklman.
The Cabinet decision was
aimed at reducing the number
of Soviet Jewish "dropouts"
who, leaving the USSR under
the promise of Israeli visas,
prefer to go to the United
States and other Western
countries instead of Israel.
The implication of the deci-
sion was that Soviet Jews with
Israeli visas would have to fly
H.S. Reunion
Reunions of graduates from
several local high schools are
being planned. The Coral
Springs High School Class of
1978 will hold its 10-year
reunion, the school's first ever,
July 15-17, at the Marriott
Hotel, Crocker Center in Boca
And graduates of the 1966,
1967, 1969 and 1970 classes of
Boca Raton High School are

Black and White Images of Israel
(WZPS) History as
recorded by David Rubinger, a
Time magazine photographer
in Jerusalem since 1954, is a
fascinating collection of
human emotional expression.
The challenge of rebuilding
lives and the rebirth of a
nation, on the one hand, and
the despair and destruction of
war on the other hand,
comprise the principle themes
of a new photographic exhibi-
tion by David Rubinger. Enti-
tled "Witness to an Era," the
80 photographs on display
form part of Israel's 40th anni-
versary celebrations.
The exhibition is featured at
the Jerusalem Municipal
Museum in the Citadel by the
Jaffa Gate. Sponsored by Jeru-
salem mayor Teddy Kollek, the
exhibition was funded by
Israel's 40th anniversary
committee and will be on show
for several months.
Historic Moments
In the lobby, before entering
the exhibition, is Rubinger's
most famous picture a group
of Israeli parachutists looking
up in awe at the newly Liber-
ated Western Wall on the third
day of the Six-Day War, June
7, 1967. It's a picture that
captures a historic moment
and in the faces of the young
soldiers can be seen an un-
fathomable mixture of exhaus-
tion, elation, disbelief, triumph
and fulfillment, reflecting both
the human condition and the
Jewish predicament of exile
Photographer David Rubinger poses beside one of his pictures, a silhouette of Israel's first prime
minister David Ben GurUm, at his new photographic exhibition "Witness to an Era." WZPS
and return. "If a photographer
is lucky enough to witness and
snap one moment like that,"
says Rubinger, "and leave his
picture for posterity, then
dayenu (that's good enough."
Rubinger has himself both
observed and been a part of
modern Jewish history. Born
in Vienna in 1924 he reached
Eretz Yisrael in 1939 with
Youth Aliyah. Most of his
family perished in the Holo-
caust. In 1951 he began his
photographic career and in
1954 undertook his first
assignments for Time maga-
Rubinger's exhibition is
arranged by themes rather
than chronologically. Most of
the pictures are in black and
white, though many of the
most recent photographs are
in color. In sections entitled
"On The Way Home," and
"Found Horizons," Rubinger
captures the hope of the
millions of new immigrants as
they arrive by boat and plane
to begin a new life in Eretz
Hope, Death, Loneliness
Perhaps the most poignant
picture from these sections is
from the 70's. An elderly
Russian couple, their faces
lined from a life of suffering
and disillusionment, sit in a
bare Israeli apartment
surrounded only by their suit-
cases. For them homecoming
was clearly a bewildering
experience. But other pictures
of small immigrant children,
their faces brimming with
hope, depict the more optim-
istic side of the ingathering of
the exiles.
If Rubinger is strongest at
letting faces tell their own
story, he can sometimes do the
same with just a hand. In a
section entitled "Between
Heaven and Earth," his
pictures deal with death. The
most striking, taken during
the War of Attrition, 1971, is
of a single hand, buried in the
sand of the Sinai Desert.
In a section called "Seers of
Their Time," we are presented
with a series of portraits of
Israel's political leaders. Ben
Gurion appears prophetic,
Teddy Kollek typically ener-
getic. But in most of these
pictures, as Golda Meir smokes
a cigarette in a quiet Knesset
corner, and Menachem Begin
walks away from the Knesset
podium, Rubinger seems to
capture the loneliness of life as
a leader.

Israel Could Destroy Missiles
JERUSALEM (INB) Israel may have no choice but to
s destroy the Chinese missiles recently purchased by Saudi
l Arabia, according to a leading Israeli expert.
Dr. Alex Bligh, an authority on Saudi Arabian affairs at the
1 Truman Institute of Hebrew University, warned last week that
" "Israel will have to destroy the missile batteries if they are fitted
' with chemical or nuclear weapons."
American Jewish leaders presented a signed
etching by Israeli artist Amram Ebgi to Vice
President and Mrs. George Bush at a recep-
tion in the Bush's Washington house. Ebgi's
work depicts Israel's hopes for peace and pays
tribute to the Jewish state on its 40th anniver-
sary. Bush responded that U.S.-Israel rela-
tions are "vital to our country" and trans-
cend political party and political ideology.
Present, from left, were: Morris Abram.
chairman of the Conference of Major Amer-
ican Jewish Organizations; Mrs. Bush; the
vice president; Moshe Arad, Israel's ambas-
sador to the U.S.; Howard M. Squadron,
chairman of the National Committee for
Israel's 40th Anniversary, who presented the
etching to Bush; and Malcolm Hoenlein, execu-
tive director of the Presidents Conference.

Jerusalem: A Capital Conflict Picnic Time
Massachusetts Gov. Michael
Dukakis came under attack
from both Secretary of State
George Shultz and the Rev.
Jesse Jackson, for advocating
moving the U.S. Embassy
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The embassy issue, which
had not been publicly debated
in the current presidential
campaign as it was in 1984,
moved into the open when
Shultz, in an appearance on
NBC-TVs "Today," show,
said, "It's shocking that
anybody would make such a
Such a move would be a
"mistake," Shultz said, since
Jerusalem, the West Bank, the
Gaza Strip and the Golan
Heights "are regarded as
occupied territory and are
"subject to negotiations."
Jackson, who appeared on
NBC-TV's "Meet the Press,"
said that Shultz "is correct,
and every American president
has taken that position."
Baker Replaced
President Reagan has
promoted Kenneth Duber-
stein, his deputy chief of staff,
to White House chief of staff,
the first Jew to hold that post.
White House spokesman
Marlin Fitzwater said Duber-
stein will take over for Chief of
Staff Howard Baker Jr. on
July 1, when Baker will return
to his private law practice.
Baker is stepping down for
personal reasons.
In a statement read by
Fitzwater, Reagan said, "I
have known Ken since the
earliest days of my administra-
tion, when he served in our
office of legislative affairs.
"I welcome his leadership in
the next several months as we
attend the eighth economic
summit of industrialized
nations and conduct the affairs
of government for the' next
seven months."
Duberstein was recom-
mended to the job by Baker,
who fondly nicknamed his
assistant "Duberdog." He is
the fourth man to preside over
the 325-member Reagan
White House staff.
"Ken will be my principal
aide and will lead the White
House staff as we head into
the home stretch," Reagan
said. "He is an outstanding
manager and skilled strategist
who has been fundamental to
the significant accomplish-
ments, foreign and domestic,
we have achieved since Ken
returned as deputy chief of
staff in March 1987."
Duberstein was assistant to
the president for legislative
affairs in 1982 and 1983 and
was deputy assistant for legi-
slative affairs from 1981 to
A native of Brooklyn, Duber-
stein received a bachelor's
degree from Franklin and
Marshall College and a
master's degree from Amer-
ican University. From 1966 to
1976, he worked for the late
Sen. Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.). He
also worked for Mayor John
Lindsay of New York, and
Gov. and Vice President
Nelson Rockefeller.
He said that "any unilateral
move undercuts" the peace
process and, like Shultz, he
said a decision on Jerusalem,
as well as the West Bank and
the Gaza Strip, should be part
of an overall Mideast settle-
"Moving the embassy to
Jerusalem would not make
Israel more secure," Jackson
said. "It would not be security
for Israel, nor justice for the
Palestinians, nor peace for
In Jerusalem, Mayor Teddy
Kollek dismissed Dukakis'
proposal, predicting that Arab
pressure would corrupt any
practical effort to implement
such a decision.
Speaking in a radio inter-
view, Kollek said he preferred,
instead, to dwell on his anger
over the U.S. State Depart-
ment's travel advisory to U.S.
citizens some months ago
which, he said, had directly
contributed to the drop-off in
tourism to Jerusalem.
"Let them change this first,
instead of all this talk about
the embassy," Kollek said.
Dukakis, who has won
enough delegates to ensure
him winning the Democratic
nomination for the presidency,
had never directly called for
moving the embassy during
the current campaign.
But he appeared to imply
that the embassy should be
moved to Jerusalem in an
interview in the Los Angeles
"If Israel wants its capital in
Jerusalem, then as far as I am
concerned, its capital is in
Jerusalem," Dukakis said.
He went on to say that "it's
a basic principle of doing busi-
ness with other nations. They
say their capital is in 'X,' then
that's where we go."

Conservative Rabbis Elect Officers
At its Rabbinical Kallah,
held recently in Orlando, the
Southeast Region of the
Rabbinical Assembly, the
organization of Conservative
rabbis, elected a slate of
officers for the next two years.
Rabbi Paul Plotkin, of
Temple Beth Am, Margate,
was elected president. Rabbi
Irving Lehrman, Miami Beach,
was elected honorary presi-
dent; Rabbi Edwin Farber,
Miami, executive vice presi-
dent; Rabbi Kenneth Berger,
Tampa, Central Council Vice
President; Rabbi David
Saltzman, North Miami Beach,
Northern Council vice presi-
dent; Rabbi Steven Glazer,
Birmingham, Alabama,
secretary; Rabbi Alan Cohen,
West Palm Beach, treasurer;
Rabbi Howard Addison, Ft.
Lauderdale, chairman, conver-
sion committee; Rabbi
Mordecai Brill, Lauderhill,
chairman, retired rabbis;
Rabbi Samuel Rudy, Miami,
Av Bet Din; and Rabbi Jacob
Luski, St. Petersburg, imme-
diate past president.
A 40th anniversary resolu-
tion was unanimously adopted
congratulating the State of
Israel on its "marvelous tech-
nological and scientific
achievements. Medical disco-
veries, high-tech advance-
ments, farming and irrigation
techniques have had profound
effect on the entire world.
The resolution also noted
that "since its inception, Israel
has been besieged with an
enemy whose primary purpose
is destruction of the state.
Nevertheless, she stands
ready as she did with Egypt's
President Anwar Sadat, to
negotiate a true and lasting
peace with her Arab neigh-
bors. May the day soon come
when Palestine Liberation
Organization terrorists will lay
down their swords, when the
security of Israel will be
assured, and the children of
Isaac and the children of
Ishmael will live again as
brothers in peace."
Arab Journalist
May Face Trial
Criminal charges may soon be
brought against an Israeli
Arab journalist who fabricated
reports about the Army's
treatment of Arab rioters in
the Gaza Strip.
Makram Khoury Mahul, a
staff reporter for the leftwing
Tel Aviv weekly Ha'ir sparked
an uproar earlier this year
when his reports about alleged
Israeli brutality were exposed
as false.
Tel Aviv police investigators
last week completed their
examination of the case and
recommended that the
attorney general initiate crim-
inal prosecution of Mahul.
Visiting Doctor Lectures at FAU
Newspaper Editors
Still in Custody
The Supreme Court over-
turned a Jerusalem district
court decision to release on
bail three left-wing Israeli
editors accused of membership
in a Palestinian terrorist
As a result of Justice Aharon
Barak's ruling, Assaf Adiv,
Michael Schwartz and
Roni Ben-Efrat, former
editors of the newspaper
Derekh Hanitzotz, are to
remain in custody until their
trial next September.
The newspaper was closed
by the authorities three
months ago. It was alleged to
have been funded by the
Democratic Front for the
Liberation of Palestine, a
Marxist-oriented spliter group
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization, led by Jordanian
Nayef Hawatme.
The editor were arrested for
violating the law against
membership in, or contact
with, a terrorist group.
Dr. Arnold J. Mandeli, left, is welcomed to a reception in his
honor at Florida State University, where he gave a lecture on
psychobiology. Mandeli is director of the Laboratory of Biological
Dynamics and Theoretical Medicine at the University of Cali-
fornia. During his visit to FAU, he collaborated with FAU
Eminent Scholar, Dr. Scott Kelso, right, director of the Center for
Complex Systems. FA U vice president Adelaide R. Snyder is also
in photo.
Dr. Arnold J. Mandeli, foun-
ding chairman of the Depart-
ment of Psychiatry at the
University of California at San
Diego, recently presented a
lecture on "Dynamical Invari-
ances and Convergence of
Models in Psychobiology" at
Florida Atlantic University in
Boca Raton.
Dr. Mandeli is currently the
director of the Laboratory of
Biological Dynamics and
Theoretical Medicine at UC
San Diego.
Much of Dr. Mandell's work
on chaotic dynamics of biolo-
gical systems, such as heart
monitoring and brain protein
synthesis, appears in mathe-
matical and physical journals.
He is also the author of many
books, including the "Coming
of Middle Age: a Journey" and
"Synergetics of the Brain,"
and has written more than 300
research articles in the scien-
tific and medical fields.
Windsurfing Finals in Haifa
TEL AVIV (JTA) Haifa's commodious horseshoe-shaped
bay is playing host to the windsurfing championship finals for
the 1988 Olympic Games this September in South Korea.
There are 125 competitors from 25 countries. The Israeli
organizers reported no cancellations for political or other
reasons, something that happens frequently when Israel hosts
an international event.
Windsurfing is making its first appearance as an Olympics
competition this year.
Boca Man Elected
To Bank's Board
Continued from Pag* 1
in the late 1950s.
He was arrested there in
1962, after the public prose-
cutor in Vienna learned that
Verbelen had been sentenced
to death in absentia by a
Belgian military court in 1947,
for having committed 101
murders during the Holocaust.
Abraham Foxman, national
director of the ADL, who
termed the report "shocking
in its revelations," called on
the Austrian government to
retry Verbelen.
Welles said the ADL is
seeking a meeting with
Austria's minister of justice,
Egmont Foregger.
In the case of Verbelen, who
is on the U.S. "watch list" of
suspected Nazis barred from
entering the country, the 92-
page report found "no evid-
ence that any Counter Intellig-
ence Corps officials learned
Verbelen's true identity before
15 June 1956."
The Justice Department's
report, in describing
Verbelen's atrocities, said that
"at the end of 1942, Verbelen
began ordering groups of
Flemish SS men ... to carry
out special actions against
persons suspected of being
anti-Nazi. These actions
ranged from house searches to
beatings to assassinations of
prominent personalities."
Sher said the intelligence
corps had a "practice of util-
izing Nazi criminals and their
collaborators in its postwar,
Cold War, European intellig-
ence operations," including
Klaus Barbie, the "Butcher of
In some instances, the
report said, the Counter Intel-
ligence Corps took steps to
protect such informants from
being arrested.

Narkiss, director of the Center
for Jewish Art at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem, at the
second International Seminar
on Jewish Art, held at the
Hebrew University.
Narkiss made his comments
concluding a session at the
seminar on Jewish museums.
He noted that his figure did
not include the many small
museums and exhibits on
Jewish themes that exist,
mainly in the United States, in
synagogues and community
Narkiss said that in the last
18 months some dozen new
Jewish museums have opened
in the world. The proliferation
is particularly notable in the
U.S. and in West Germany, he
commented. Narkiss said the
Center for Jewish Art at the
Hebrew University would like
At the session on Jewish
museums, presentations were
made on Jewish museums in
Amsterdam, Budapest, Basel
and Braunschweig. The new
Amsterdam Jewish Historical
Museum opened just a year
ago and is housed in four adja-
cent, restored synagogues
from the 17th and 18th
One of the more unusual
Jewish museums in the world
is that of Braunschweig, in
Lower Saxony, West
Germany, where there no
longer is a Jewish community
and where the curator of the
Jewish museum is a non-Jew.
The Jewish museum houses
the interior of an 18th century
synagogue from Hornburg.

One of Eastern Europe's
few Jewish museums is located
in Budapest, near the Great
Synagogue of Dohany Street.
It was built in 1930 on the site
of Theodor Herzl's birthplace.
Amone the noted objects there
are exhibits on the Holocaust
in Hungary. Also on display
are old Jewish gravestones --
the oldest from the Third
Century CE, which attest to
the ancient nature of Jewish
life in Hungary.
The Jewish museum of
Basel, Switzerland, is located
in the city where the Zionist
movement was officially born.
The museum, founded in 1966
and operated under private
auspices, tells the story of
Jewish life in Switzerland and
of Zionism.

percent of the emigres chose
the United States or Western
Europe over Israel.
Recent actions by the
Soviets, including a remark by
Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze to
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, indicate that Soviets
do not seem to care whether
the emigres go to Israel or
other countries.
According to Morris Abram,
chairman of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry,
300 Soviet Jews since January
have received permission to
leave the USSR based on invi-
Emigration Policy^
tations originating in the
United States. That number is
triple the amount permitted all
of last year, and 10 times the
number for 1986.
Abram said the Cabinet deci-
sion is a "welcome step and a
positive response to recent
changes in Soviet emigration
Saying "we trust" that
Soviet authorities will increase
the number of exit visas for
Jews seeking to emigrate to
Israel, the United States,
Canada and other countries,
Abram said the new Israeli
procedure reaffirms the prin-
cipal of freedom of choice.
"Jewish emigrants who
intend to settle in Israel will be
able to proceed directly to
Israel via Bucharest," Abram
said. "Those who wish to
emigrate to the United States
and Canada should be able to
do so."
The relative relaxation of
the Soviet visa policy encour-
aged HIAS, the Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society, to
announce its plans to mobilize
the American Jewish
community to "test the
waters" of Soviet policy.
HIAS currently registers
and assists those Soviet Jews
in Vienna who wish to resettle
in the United States.

working on kibbutzim; volun-

porary Israeli life and culture.

themselves to be the leaders in
the continuing effort to
strengthen this aspect of
rabbinic training.
