A five day workshop on
amino acids, held at Ben Gur-

Landmark First
JERUSALEM For the first time since
the Arab uprising in the territories began a
year ago, a Jewish settler has been convic-
ted and sentenced in an Israeli court for
killing or injuring a Palestinian.
Ysiarel Zeev, 38, an American-born set-
tler, drew a five-year prison term for
killing an Arab shepherd who had brought
his sheep to graze on land near the settle-
ment of Shiloh last May 5. Judge Zvi Cohen
suspended two years of the sentence, and
credited Zeev with seven months already
served while awaiting the trial.
A second Arab shepherd, wounded in
Zeev's action, was awarded $18,600 in

Germany To Work
The Jewish communities in
the Federal Republic and the
German Democratic Republic
have decided to work more
closely together.
"From our common past we
have assumed the duty to pre-
serve the Jewish tradition in
both German states and to do
our part to see that fascism
and war never again threaten
people," said Heinz Galinski,
chairman of the Central Coun-
cil of Jews in Germany, in an
interview in Dresden. Gal-
inski's remarks followed a
meeting in the city with Sieg-
mund Rotstein, the president
of the Jewish communities in
the GDR.
Conferences subsequently
were held in both parts of
Berlin on the role of the Jews
in recent German history. In
the Western part of the city,
the Historical Commission in
Berlin sponsored a two-day
meeting titled "Image and
Self-image of the Jews of Ber-
lin Between the Enlighten-
ment and Romanticism,' with
scholars in history, Germanis-
tics and philosophy from
Israel, France, the United
States and the Federal Repub-
lic participating. In Berlin

Role of the Jews in the Social,
Political and Intellectual-
Cultural Disputes of 20th Cen-
tury German History," was
held under the aegis of the

The four year old lodge has been increasing its membership
through a special drive.
The Knights of Pythias,
Atlantic Lodge No. 217,
achieved its objective of over
200 members by Nov. 30 one
month ahead of schedule.
The lodge will now be enti-
tled to a third representative
at the Florida Convention,
which will be held May, 1989 at
the Royce Hotel West Palm
Five applicants were voted
into the lodge last month. They
are Abraham Kopman, spon-
sored by Nathan Chmara, and
Edward Cherniak, sponsored
by David Altbuch, as dual
members; and Irving Robbins
and Abraham Weinstein, spon-
sored by Alvin Small, and Max
Shabashov, sponsored by Bud
Oatley, by reinstatement.
Six more applications are
expected to be approved at the
lodge's December meeting.
They are Leonard Syrop and
Max Wolf, sponsored by David
Altbuch, by transfer; Barney

Technion Students
Tutor Disadvantaged
Technion-Israel Institute of
Technology sponsors an after-
school academic outreach pro-
ject in poor communities in
northern Israel.
Started in 1983, the Pro-
gram for the Advancement of
Technological Manpower
brings outstanding Technion
students and poor high school
students together to remedy a
growing deterioration in the
quality of nigh school science
and technology courses, par-
ticularly in those areas where
scanty funds have led to an
acute shortage of teachers and
"Four years ago we realized
that there was a significant
decrease in the number of stu-
dents entering Technion from
poor regions, mainly from fam-
ilies of Sephardic and Druze
origin," says Professor Gad
Eilam, dean of students and
head of the program.
Eilan explains Technion felt
a responsibility to reverse this
loss of potential by bringing
these students up to a level
where they could compete with
more affluent youths and gain
entrance to the university.
BBYO Volunteer
Advisors Sought
The B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization, which has 20
chapters in Florida's "Gold
Coast" region is seeking vol-
unteer advisors for local high

pate in ongoing training.
Local chapters, which reach
out to almost 700 Jewish
teens, are curently in the Palm
Beach Gardens, Boca Raton,
Coral Springs, Plantation,
Hollywood, Pembroke Pines

Delayniks Dilemma
Action by American immigration offi-
cials challenging the refugee status of
hundreds of Soviet Jewish emigrees can-
not be condemned out of hand, no matter
how disturbing the challenges now going
on in Rome.
The 179 Jews who have been denied
refugee visas, and some 300 other "delay-
niks" awaiting decisions by U.S. authorit-
ies, originally applied for and were granted
exit visas for Israel.
Two points are thus emphasized. First,
the State of Israel continues its essential,
ongoing role as a guaranteed refugee for
any Jew in the world, other than rare
exceptions for those proven guilty of seri-
ous crimes.
Second, the role of American Jewry in
encouraging Soviet Jews to settle in the
United States remains open to question.
Last year, $14 million was spent in this
country resettling Soviet emigres. This
year, the figure may reach $66 million with
Jews now leaving the USSR at a rate of
1,500 a month.
Saying all that, however, does not mean
that we should permit American authorit-
ies to say or imply that the persecution of
Jews in the Soviet Union is no longer a
serious problem.
It was the outcry of American and world
Jewry which opened up the gates for the
"Jews of Silence" to begin leaving the
Soviet Union more than a decade ago. We
should not and cannot let the promise of
glasnost be used to close the doors to
refugees from the Soviet Union, be they
Jewish, Armenian or any other nationality.
The frightening new development does
emphasize a need to re-examine the Israeli
position, supported strongly by the Zionist
Movement, that a primary responsibility is
to see that freed Soviet Jews go to the
Jewish State, the land for which they
requested emigration.
Alternative Traditions
In a free society, all persons strive for
maximizing their rights. In a controlled
environment, that striving is often sty-
mied. And in a less-free culture, all such
attempts are thwarted.
It is therefore an exercise in paradox,
that in the one democratic state in the
whole of the Middle East, one entire group
of people is roadblocked on its way to full
Last week, as Jewish feminists convened
in Israel, there were demonstrations at the
Western Wall. As women prayed on
their side of the partitioned wall rabbis
assailed them.
Garbed in the symbols of the faith
normally ascribed as religious mens' wear,
women read from the Torah at the Kotel.
Such was the response that the rabbi
responsible for the Wall compared "a
woman carrying a Torah is like a pig at the
Wailing Wall."
On Nov. 11, the Jewish Floridian fea-
tured a growing trend in a piece entitled
"Discounting the All-Male Minyan and
Counting the Other Half." Pragmatism,
reassessing roles and a penchant for equal-
ity dictates that many rituals frozen in
time and practice are slowly being re-
True, the Orthodox standards have pro-
tected and defended the sanctity and
stability of Judaism for generations. Tradi-
tionalists have withstood assaults on what
they see as a religious vanguard for the
ages. And, their timeless values have
helped the people Israel remain one.
Whether or not all restrictions are
removed or modified should be the focus of
study and respectful consideration. Absent
should be the knee-jerk and gut reaction
that finds its expression in history and
To George Shultz's Credit
While he may not share as prominent a
role vis-a-vis Israel as the late Harry S.
Truman, Secretary of State George Shultz
has set an ex post facto standard unsur-
passed by any of his predecessors.
In the most recent confrontation with
world opinion, Shultz stood firm and uns-
wayed in his determination to deny PLO
Chairman Yasir Arafat a visa in order to
address the UN on the Palestine question.
While the decision has proved unpopu-
lar, Shultz backed by President Reagan
has stood firm and delivered an unequi-
vocal message that the United States will
not be cowed by convention.

insults and curses by ultra-
Orthodox men and women who
pray regularly at the holy site.
A Reform rabbi from
Toronto, Debra Brin, con-
ducted the service, which
marked the final day of the
As the feminists, many
wearing skullcaps and prayer-
shawls, prayed and read from
the Torah, black-garbed men
shouted and pounded on the
wooden barricades that sep-
arate male and female wor-
shipers at the Wall.
Said one pious Jew, "The
spectacle of a woman carrying
the Torah is as scandalous as
bringing pigs to the Kotel," as
the Western Wall is known in
"In the name of God, I prot-
est," shouted another. "This is
a holy place for all of Israel and
they are defiling it."
An elderly Orthodox woman
pushed and shoved the foreign
women, screaming that they
were desecrating the Torah.
"Disgraceful," snorted
Rabbi Yehuda Getz, the func-
tionary in charge of the West-
em Wall. He was referring to
the foreign women, not the
behavior of his ultra-Orthodox
He conceded to reporters
that the prayer session did not
itself violate halacha (religious
law). But the Wall "is a holy
place, not a place for demon-
strations," he said.
The targets of the attack
seemed to accept it with
equanimity. Helene Ferris, a
Reform rabbi from New York,
told reporters, "We came here
to pray. That's all."
But author Blu Greenberg,
also of New York, said it was
"unfortunate that something
like this turns their world
upside down. They should real-
ize that prayer isn't only for
men. It would be nice if they
could accept reality," said
Greenberg, who is Orthodox.

Labor-Likud Resume Unity Talks
Friday, December 16, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
Labor Party's Central Com-
mittee voted decisively to
resume negotiations with
Likud for a broad-based coali-
tion government.
Likud, still bogged down in
talks with the ultra-Orthodox
and far right-wing parties, was
unable to present Labor with
the fait accompli of a narrow
governing majority, as Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir had
hoped to do before the Central
Committee voted.
Israel Radio announced the
secret vote was 690-390 in
favor of an alliance with Likud,
as urged by party leader Shi-
mon Peres and almost all other
Laborites of ministerial rank.
Israel Television shortly
afterward said the vote was
638-349. By either count, it
was evident that many of the
Central Committee's 1,300-
plus members did not cast bal-

But simmering discontent
with the party's leadership,
widely blamed for its weaker-
than-anticipated showing in
the Nov. 1 Knesset elections,
did not surface at the Central
Committee session, contrary
to the predictions of some
The committee was con-
vened in response to a dra-
matic plea by President Chaim
Herzog for the two major par-
ties to get together and form a
broad, stable government for
the good of the country.
Its decision reversed that of
the party's 120-member lead-
ership bureau, which defied
Peres by rejecting a new
approach to Likud in an upset
vote here.
In favor were Peres, who is
foreign minister in the outgo-
ing Labor-Likud unity govern-
ment, Defense Minister Yitz-
hak Rabin and Education Min-
ister Yitzhak Navon, a former
president of Israel. Opposing it
were Labor Party Secretary-
General Uzi Baram; Yitzhak
Ben-Aharon, the 83-year old
former secretary-general of
Histadrut; and Michael Bar-
Zohar, a Knesset member and
longtime critic of the present
party leadership.
Peres put his position as
chairman on the line in an
impassioned plea. "My head is
in your hands," he said. "Any-
one who wants to cut it off can
do so."
In Jerusalem, meanwhile,
Likud signed a coalition accord
with the far right-wing Tehiya
party. It pledged, among other
things, to build 40 new Jewish
settlements in the adminis-
tered territories over the next
four years.
But Peres and other Labor-
ites made clear that their deci-
sion to negotiate with Likud is
contingent on its reopening
the agreements it reached
with the religious parties and
keeping the three secular
right-wing parties Tehyia,
Tsomet and Moledet out of
the projected government.
"We will go with the Ortho-
dox, because we courted
them," Rabin declared. But
Labor would not be part of any
government committed to a
massive settlement plan.
Orthodox Protest Exemptions
JERUSALEM (JTA) Hundreds of Orthodox Jews who
have served in the armed forces demonstrated here against
widespread criticism of the exemptions from compulsory
military service given to yeshiva students.
The reserve officers and soldiers conducted a march to
the Prime Minister's Office to show that the Orthodox are
an integral part of the security forces.
Yeshiva students and other religious Jews, meanwhile,
have decided to volunteer for armed patrols to secure the
old Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives after dark.
There has been a rash of vandalism at the cemetery.
About 100 tombstones have been desecrated this year,
apparently by Arabs.
