Heart Transplant To Arab
Fuels Ethnic Conflicts
debate is rising in Israel over
the propriety of transplanting
hearts between people of dif-
ferent religious or ethnic back-
It was triggered by the suc-
cessful transplant of the heart
of a slain Israel Defense Force
soldier to save the life of an
East Jerusalem Arab.
The operation was done at
Hadassah University Hospital
in Jerusalem, only hours after
Sgt. Ze'ev Traum, a 40-year-
old Israel Defense Force
reservist died at Soroka Hospi-
tal in Beersheba from head
wounds suffered in a Palestin-
ian ambush in the Gaza Strip.
Recipient was Hana Khader,
54, a Christian Arab patient at
Hadassah Hospital.
Soroka, protesting publica-
tion of the donor's and recip-
ient's names after the opera-
tion, announced its withdrawal
from an inter-hospital agree-
ment to notify each other of
the availability of human
organs donated for transplant.
In this case, Soroka, a gov-
ernment hospital, notified
Hadassah that Traum's heart
was available.
Soroka and other sources
claim no one was authorized to
release the donor's name,
which was published by Reut-
ers, the international news
Traum, who was born in
Israel, was brought to New
York at the age of 9 and was
active in a Bronx chapter of
Habonim, the youth group of
the Labor Zionist movement.
He returned to Israel in 1968.
His American-born wife,
Brenda Krasner Traum, was a
member of Habonim in Balti-
more. Brenda authorized the
transplant of his heart.
She apparently agreed to
release his name, partly to
draw public attention to the
need for organ donors. But she
had no idea at the time who the
recipient would be.
Walesa 'Guarantees' Holy Sites In Poland
NEW YORK "I will per-
sonally be the guarantor of the
synagogues, cemeteries and
other vestiges of Jewish life in
Poland," Solidarity leader
Lech Walesa told the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions here.
In what he termed "an effort
to open a dialogue between
Poles and Jews," the Nobel
laureate issued a plea for
"common understanding"
between two peoples "with a
common destiny.
"There is much more that
links us than divides us,"
Walesa said, adding:
"The Holocaust was our
common tragedy. We must put
an end to fighting and, remem-
bering our common past, work
together to transform
Poland's future."
Walesa took issue with conc-
erns expressed by some Jewish
leaders at the meeting about
what they perceived to be anti-
Semitic remarks by Cardinal
Glemp in connection with the
controversy over the Carmel-
ite convent at Auschwitz.
"The blood that was spilled
there obligates us to find a
solution that will enable per-
sons of all faiths to go there,"
Walesa said. While he person-
ally believes Cardinal Glemp is
"not an anti-Semite," he
urged that the issue be put to
rest saying:
"If we allow our enemies to
divide us it is we who pay the
price. We're trying to bring
about a renewal in Poland. Let
us work together."
In response, Seymour D.
Reich, chairman of the Confer-
ence of Presidents, told
Walesa that "while we are
prepared to engage in a new
beginning with Poland, we
can't forget the past, or the
anti-Semitism that was ramp-
ant in Poland." He added,
"This must be acknowledged
by the Polish authorities and
the Polish people."
Affection and admiration
displayed by the Jewish lead-
ers for Mr. Walesa's human
rights achievements were
tinged with the anguish of the
Holocaust survivors in the
group. In response to pleas
that the Jewish losses in the
Holocaust were being glossed
over, Walesa replied:
"I will personally guarantee
that any remaining Jewish
holy sites will be declared his-
toric shrines. Jews died in the
concentration camps simply
because they were Jews. Tnis
must and will be acknowl-
On other matters of concern
to the Jewish community, the
Solidarity leader voiced opti-
mism that diplomatic relations
between Poland and Israel
would be restored "in a matter
of time" and pledged his sup-
port for efforts to overturn the
UN's 1975 resolution equating
Zionism with racism.
Reich presented a 3,200-
year-old piece of pottery a
vase from Israel to Walesa
"in a spirit of admiration" and
"as a symbol of the linkage
between Israel and the Jewish
people." Walesa was visibly
moved. He expressed his
admiration for the state of
Israel and kissed the vase.
South Floridians Make History In USSR
Ten members of South Flor-
ida Conference on Soviet
Jewry joined approximately 65
other Soviet Jewry activists
from the United States,
Europe and Israel to attend a
meeting of the Union of Coun-
cils for Soviet Jews (UCSJ) in
the Soviet Union.
This was an unprecedented,
historic event. In fact, there
were times during the plan-
ning of the meeting that we
wondered if we were really
going to be able to "pull it off.
It's hard enough planning a
national Soviet Jewry meeting
in the United States, but in
Moscow and Leningrad
unheard of!
Every day a new problem
surfaced. I had to remind
myself that, from its concep-
tion, the Soviet Jewry move-
ment had overcome insur-
mountable odds to achieve the
I remembered when Natan
Sharansky dispelled the Jew-
ish communities' doubts about
successfully convening a
Soviet Jewry March on Wash-
ington in 1987. He reminded
us then that the emigration of
over 250,000 Jews from the
Soviet Union had also been an
impossible goal.
But Soviet Jews followed
their hearts and their dreams
and accomplished a "miracle"
in Soviet Jewish emigration.
And, thank goodness, in 1987
the Jewish community listened
to Natan Sharansky. The rest
is history. The march was a
huge success.
Once again, with the plan-
ning of the UCSJ meeting, we
found ourselves in the middle
of another inconceivable,
absurd, impossible task. How-
ever, we also had our heroes to
inspire and encourage us. In
fact, without the dedication,
commitment, encouragement
and just plain hard work of the
Soviet Jews themselves, this
impossible dream would never
have become an extremely suc-
cessful reality.
The obstacles that were
overcome to hold this meeting
are too numerous to list. Suf-
fice it to say that Leonid
Stonov, Boris Kelman and
many other Refuseniks per-
formed a minor miracle.
It became increasingly
apparent that our meeting in
the Soviet Union was a symbol
for those who struggled for
this cause, both inside and
outside the Soviet Union. It
was not only a symbol of the
accomplishments of the move-
ment, but, even more impor-
tantly, a symbol of the partner-
ship between those who fought
for their freedom and for the
renewal of their culture and
those who supported this
The Union of Councils
always has worked with Soviet
Jews in a partnership. Our
strategies and policies reflect a
combined effort working tow-
ards a unified goal. We have
always disassociated ourselves
from the paternalism that
threatens to suffocate the
Our meeting in the Soviet
Union would fortify and
strengthen the partnership
between us and the Jews in the
USSR. It would also serve to
motivate us to future action
which is sorely needed.
We knew that our meeting
was extremely important to

Wall Street Week' Panelist Sees No Recession In 1990
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
For people who like to "keep
up with the Dow Joneses, '
financial analyst Carter Ran-
dall offers a partly sunny fore-
cast for 1990.
The headlines as he would
write them:
No Recession in 1990.
Sluggish Economy, But No
Economic Downturn.
Inflation Will Decline.
Interest Rates Should
Randall, a 62-year-old self-
described "conservative"
money consultant, is an
author, lecturer and a prime
panelist on "Wall Street
Week" with Louis Rukeyser.
He shared these economic
forecasts as well as some inv-
estment tips during a private
interview with The Jewish
Randall also spoke to several
south Florida groups, includ-
ing the Foundation of Jewish
Philanthropies of the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation, as
special guest of The Trust
Company of The South, and its
president Peter Hough ton.
Inflation will not escape
1990, but Randall predicts that
it will not exceed 3.5 percent,
less than in 1989.
"I don't see much price infla-
tion because we're not operat-
ing at maximum capacity and
there's no need for price
increases to offset a higher
cost of production," Randall
Food prices should remain
relatively stable through 1990
but shortages of labor, which
would result in higher wages

fied by Henrietta Szold,
Hadassah's founder," Mrs.

announcement. "It is a privi-
lege to honor Rita with the

Soviet Jews, but we had no
idea just how significant it
truly was. They travelled great
distances to welcome us and to
let us know how vital our work
has been. They urged us to
continue to support them, not
to give up the fight.
They begged us to tell the
world about the virulent anti-
Semitism that has been
unleashed since glasnost. They
beseeched us to convince our
communities that the problems
of Soviet Jewry have not been
This is our biggest challenge.
The UCSJ meeting in the
Soviet Union was a huge suc-
cess beyond our wildest
dreams. But will it be similar
to the old story that the opera-
tion was a success but the
patient died? Do we have the
fortitude and perseverence to
carry on, to continue a fight
for a cause that almost every-
^ one seems to be tired of bear-
s' ing about? Is this an impossible
8 Yes, it is an impossible task.
" And, yes, we will succeed. Ein
8 breira we have no choice.
We will work together with all
the heroes we met from all
~ over the Soviet Union from
| Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk,
Kishinev, Odessa, Tashkent
and many other cities.
They will be our inspiration,
and we will support them in
their struggle for freedom and
for Jewish renewal.
We will help to supply the
desperately needed Jewish cul-
tural materials that will allow
them to educate and organize
their communities towards
Jewish renewal and aliyah. We
will send teachers to train
their teachers. We will pre-
pare travellers to visit them
to be a lifeline.
We will continue to support
President Bush's stand on the
Jackson-Vanik amendment
no waiver until the Soviet
Union has codified into law its
emigration reforms, and until
these laws are implemented
We will continue our work
until every Soviet Jew who
wants to leave has done so,
and until every Soviet Jew
who wants to stay and live a
Jewish life can do so without
harassment. This was the
promise that we made to our
brothers and sisters that we
would never abandon them.
We made this promise, not
only for ourselves, but for the
entire Jewish community.
We have come so far, but we
still have so far to go.

and benefits, may push prices
up a little bit. Softer oil prices
in 1990 should result in a
decline in energy costs.
Much-watched interest rates
should decline in sympathy
with climbing inflation rates.
The Federal Reserve System
will ease money in an effort to
restimulate a sluggish econ-
omy, he said.
Annual deficit of the federal
government will increase by
roughly $140 billion, Randall
predicted. "Give or take a bil-
lion, or two, or three," he
While he doesn't see any
major new tax legislation com-
ing out of Washington at
least legislation affecting
income taxes of individuals
Randall does foresee a change
in the government's spending

American ORT will hold an

With less of an emphasis on
defense spending, Randall sees
the funds heading into three
major areas: pollution control,
rebuilding of the infrastruc-
ture and the fight against sub-
stance abuse.
With interest rates on the
decline, the bond market is a
good value at this time, partic-
ularly tax-exempt bonds. "I
would be a buyer or holder of
bonds with a high heart," he
Stocks he's eyeing in those
areas include Browning Ferris
and Waste Management, the
Caterpillar Corporation and
Community Psychiatric Cen-
ters, a chain of psychiatric
hospitals with a growing
emphasis on substance abuse.
To promote competition and
better prices, Randall said
there will be a continuation of
federal policy toward deregu-
lation, particularly in the
trucking and financial services
And he thinks stocks are
"cheap" even though they've
had a big run-up so far.
"I would buy and hold good
quality stocks at this time," he
Because Randall doubts the
Bush Administration is ready
to drop a psychological bomb
on Americans, he suggests it
will use the many economic
tools in its kit to avoid an
economic downturn.
There is a caveat to that,
"One mistake that could
change the scenario is delays
by the Federal Reserve in
reducing interest rates and I
will watch that closely. That
could precipitate a downturn,
but it wouldn't be major."
Although real estate is not
his main area of expertese,
Randall says he sees a decline
in interest rates leading to
more activity on the home
building front and better val-
ues for residential."
As for "Japan buying out
America," Randall says he's
"not worried at all." He "wel-
comes" their capital and says
they are helping to finance our
deficit. Randall notes that the
Japanese own less of most
American assets than other
investors such as the English
and the Dutch.
Besides being optimistic that
the bottom of the economy is
nowhere near falling out in the
near future, Randall is bullish

An Initial Reaction To East Germany's Upheaval
Jews, I believe, welcome the
collapse of the totalitarian
oppression in East Germany,
as well as elsewhere in East-
ern Europe. But clearly there
is a growing anxiety among
many Jews, as among others,
over what a possible reunifica-
tion of East and West Ger-
many could mean to the future
of constitutional democracy in
the Federal Republic, as well
as to its foreign policy.
Pundits will be reflecting for
months to come over the possi-
ble effects of a reunified Ger-
many on the future of NATO
and the European Economic
Community. Within that con-
text, there are specific Jewish
The Federal Republic of Ger-
many has been the strongest
economic and political suppor-
ter of Israel on the continent
since the end of World War II.
On the other hand, East Ger-
many, the German Democratic
Republic, has for the past 40
years been the fiercest anti-
Israel, pro-Arab country
among the Warsaw Pact allies.
Demagogic anti-Israel propa-
ganda has been the daily diet
of the East German popula-
Indeed, studies on terrorism
disclose that the GDR has been
the major training center for
international terrorists
especially the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization for
decades. What effects could
those hostile policies toward
Israel have on a possible reuni-
fied German foreign policy?
On the domestic front,
should hundreds of thousands
of East Germans relocate in
West Germany, it is inevitable
that there wiil develop conflict
among West and East Ger-
mans for jobs, housing, health
care, education and social wel-
Such domestic turmoil is
ready-made for exploitation by
the right-wing Republican
party in West Germany, now
headed by a former Nazi SS
officer. That neo-fascist party
has already made some gains
in recent elections.
GDR has also been double
talking Jewish leaders about
reparations to victims of Nazi
persecution. What influence, if
any, would they have on the
Federal Republic's more open
reparations and pro-Israel pol-
This is therefore not a time
for irrational paranoia, but for
rational vigilance and concern.
Rabbi Marc H. Tanenbaum is inter-
national relations consultant to the
American Jewish Committee and is
immediate past chairman of the Inter-
national Jewish Committee for Inter-
religious Consultations.
Jackson-Vanik Pressure
As President Bush prepares for the
Malta pre-summit meeting, Soviet pressure
for the repeal of the Jackson-Vanik Amend-
ment is growing.
Moscow points to the greatly increased
number of Jews permitted to emigrate as
well as to the clear signs of reform in
Eastern Europe.
But it is important to remember that the
Jackson-Vanik prohibition against the
USSR receiving favored nation status has
been critical to greater freedom for Soviet
Lifting of the amendment for a specified
time period, rather than outright repeal,
seems a compromise which can satisfy both
Washington and Moscow.
And the result of America's new policy
on admitting Russian Jewry will not be
known for many months.

on America.
"I think America is still the
number one economic and
industrial power in the world.
What has happened is other
nations have begun to catch up
with us. No one else is as
powerful including the Japan-
ese. They have come a long
way, but lack two things we
have: self sufficiency and mili-
tary power."
As the world becomes an
economic global village, Ran-
dall encourages investors to
think in world market terms.
China represents a potential
longterm investment because
it could be the biggest consum-
ing nation in the world.
Other Randall tips:
The recent escalation in
gold is a "false run-up."
AT&T: "I would hold
shares with a high heart."
Oil stocks: "I feel neutral
about them. I'd rather invest
somewhere else unless I had to
pay a high tax on them."
Stocks to ditch: automobile
and steel.
Utilities: "A good conser-
vative hold for the present
time and probably will do
slightly better in the market
because of my anticipated drop
in interest rates."
Percentage of Portfolio:
"Depends on the investor and
the risk he can afford. At
present, a model portfolio
would be 60 percent in quality
common stocks, 30 percent in
intermediate-term bonds and
10 percent in cash reserves."
Israel's President Speaks Out
'Coincidental' Timing Oi Israel South Africa Links?
Given the "coincidental"
timing of the attack on Israel
for its alleged links with South
Africa, it became clear to me
once again that there is noth-
ing new under the sun. I was
reminded of the period when I
served as Israeli Ambassador
to the U.N., a very similar
period in which attacks on
Israel that were ostensibly
coincidental occurred from
time to time.
It is too bad that no one
bothered to document and
highlight the repeatedly "coin-
cidental" nature of those
attacks on Israel over the
The issue of relations with
South Africa is the most out-
standing example of the inter-
national hypocrisy that charac-
terizes political life throughout
the world.
Israel has denounced and
continues to denounce the fool-
ish policy of apartheid. It con-
travenes Israel's principles as
a democratic state, and espe-
cially the Torah and Jewish
Dr. Herzl wrote as long ago
as 1902 that after he
succeeded in his efforts to lib-
erate the Jewish people, he
would devote his time to liber-
ating the African nation. But
with the hypocrisy that charac-
terizes the treatment of the
issue of South Africa and its
connections with Israel, the
world's application of a double
standard reaches new heights.
I recall the way they had a
'field day' every year at the
U.N. against Israel on this
issue. Tnere, for example, it
was customary to condemn
Israel for El AL flights to
South Africa.
But not one word was said
about the other national air-
lines, from all over the world,
that travel to that country.
For years the scope of Israel's
trade with South Africa consti-
tuted about 2/5 of a percent of
the overall international trade
of that country, while Black
African nations' trade with
South Africa ranges from 16-
20 percent.
And now the 'discovery' of
links between Israel and South
Africa in the nuclear field is
repeated in the usual manner.
It is easy for someone to bes-
mirch Israel's name, despite
the repeated denials by the
Israel government, but who is
interested? Who wants to be
confused by the facts?
South Africa has three
nuclear reactors. They were
not supplied by Israel. One of
them was supplied some time
ago by the U.S., and two by
Was this fact mentioned
even once recently? Did NBC
devote a special program to
It is my recollection that at
that time we had a policy of
gathering the rep I facts about
international connections with
South Africa and exposing
them publicly.
I remember that a number of
times we were quietly asked to
leave matters alone and not
publish the facts. I get angry
every time this worn argument
is used.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "And his father Isaac said unto him: 'Come near now, and
kiss me, my son'. And he smelted the smell of his raiment, and
blessed him"
(Gen. 27.t6-t7).
TOLEDOT Like Sarah, Rebekah at first was barren. After
Isaac prayed to God on her behalf, she bore twin boys Esau and
Jacob. Esau grew up a hunter, Jacob an upright dweller in tents.
One day, Esau returned from the field very hungry, and
disdainfully sold his "elder son" birthright to Jacob for a pot of
lentil soup. Isaac was old and blind and likely to die soon. He
called Esau and instructed him to prepare Isaac's favorite dishes,
that he might bless him before his death. However, Rebekah, who
favored Jacob for his superior merits, arranged for Jacob to
secure his father's coveted blessing instead of his elder brother.
Fearing Esau's revenge, and anxious lest Jacob marry a
Canaanite woman, his mother sent him to her brother Laban, who
lived in Paddan-Aram. Before leaving, Jacob received Isaac's
blessing, the continuation of God's original blessing to Abraham:
that he and his seed would inherit the land of Canaan. Isaac bade
Jacob marry one of his uncle Laban's daughters.
