Some of the worst violence in

first began two years ago: in
the Gaza Strip.

Bezelem, the Israeli Infor-

about 132 Arab children under
age 17 have been shot and
killed since the uprising began.
They include 37 children under
the age of 13.

East Germans Asked
To Return Property
BONN (JTA) East Ger-
many's newly founded Green
Party has urged the authorit-
ies to return property confis-
cated from the Jews by the
Nazis before and during World
War II.
The left-wing, environmen-
talist Greens emphasized that
the Jews' property had never
been returned to its owners
despite the anti-fascist rhet-
oric spouted by the old Com-
munist leadership.
The demand comes amid the
most revolutionary changes in
the German Democratic
Republic, whose entire Com-
munist leadership resigned
this week.
Even before this, the
changes in East Germany in
the last month, culminating in
the crumbling of the Berlin
Wall, convinced the country's
tiny Jewish community it was
time to assert itself.
The community, or
Gemeinde, demanded that the
authorities tell the truth about
anti-Semitic incidents that
have taken place in the coun-
try. The Jewish community
also has asked that textbooks
used in schools tell the story of
the Stalinist persecution of the
Jews in the early years of East
German history.

Highly Literate Community Needs Book Month
Throughout thousands of
years of world history, the
Jewish people have been
known as "Am HaSefer, the
People of the Book." The book
has been the Torah and its
commentators, its amplifica-
tion through the Talmud and
the vast Jewish religious liter-
ature written throughout the
It has also found expression
through the vast production of
Jewish literacy genius in every
conceivable area philosophy,
literature, medicine, to name a
few. It has been written in
many languages Hebrew,
Aramaic, Ladino, Yiddish and
the language of the country of
Jewish residence.
But the greatest accomplish-
ment of all has been the fact
that our people has raised a
literate population, able to
read and study it. Throughout
the centuries, in no matter
what difficulty Jewish commu-
nities found themselves,
schools were created, young
people were taught to read and
write, to pray from the Siddur,
to study Chumash and Rashi
and learn the Talmud.
Many were able to read and
discuss the great literature of
western civilization. In socie-
ties where even the nobility
could hot read and write,
young Jewish children could.
This Jewish knowledge was
one of the key factors in allow-
ing the Jewish people to sur-
vive and thrive under the most
adverse conditions. It helped
to create and sustain a unique
lifestyle that allowed for the
continuity of our people and its
heritage, tradition and value

It seems, therefore, to be
appropriate that each year a
month is set aside by the
American Jewish community
known as "Jewish Book
Month." And yet there is a
paradox that we should need a

reading of Jewish books should
be part of normal everyday

and literature.
This has resulted from the
American Jewish experience,
especially the large East Euro-
pean immigration of the late
19th and early 20th centuries.
The immigrants felt that their
children's rise out of the
ghetto could best be accom-
plished by education not
Jewish education, but through
the public schools. "The Peo-
ple of the Book" became the
people of the secular book,
discarding their "excess" Jew-
ish baggage in their drive to
"make it" in America.
The paradox is that today,
more Jewish books, including
the classical sources, have
been published in English edi-
tions. There are linear transla-
tions of the Tanach (the Bible)
and the Talmud with commen-
tary. Many of the great Jewish
thinkers are now available in

Bill of Rights Bicentennial
There may be no Bicentennial observance
more important to American Jewry than
the current observance of the 200th anni-
versary of the Bill of Rights.
Thomas Jefferson was both correct and
prophetic in his insistence that the Consti-
tution required its initial 10 amendments in
order to be a truly permanent document.
Freedom of religion, of speech and of the
press are merely the best known of the Bill
of Rights' safeguards.
Even as we observe this Bicentennial,
some of these precious rights seem endan-
gered by efforts to provide quick and easy
solutions to some of the major problerqs
confronting our nation.
As Jews and as Americans, we cannot be
satisfied simply to fight for the continued
separation of church and state.
Other rights, including those of privacy
and freedom from unwarranted search and
seizure, must be fought for just as dili-

And the Soviet Union, while clearly

policy, still provides sophisticated arms for
Syria and other enemies of Israel.
Israel's correct position that face-to-face
negotiations, with no pre-conditions, are
the only sure path to peace does not need
coercion from either super power.

Chanukah And The
Building Of The Temple
eight-day festival of Chanu-
kah, which begins Dec. 22,
commemorates the rededica-
tion of the Holy Temple, the
Bet Hamikdosh, in Jerusalem
in the year 165 BCE, following
its pagan defilement by the
Syrians. With the destruction
of the resplendent Herodian
temple by the Romans in 70
C.E., the focus of Chanukah
observance in the Diaspora
inevitably shifted to the "mira-
cle of the cruse of oil," and the
Festival of Lights.
Since the time of King Solo-
mon's temple, which was con-
structed about 1000 BCE, the
Bet Hamikdosh was the dra-
matic national and religious
focus of Israelite unity. The
Roman destruction in the first
century rendered the temple
more symbolic than real in
Jewish consciousness.
But with the reconquest of
Jerusalem and the Temple
Mount by Israel in the 1967
war, a preoccupation has
developed among mainly tradi-
tional Jews to "rebuild the
Temple speedily in our.days."
There are fundamental dif-
ferences of Halachic views
among Orthodox Jews as to
whether contemporary Jews
have a right to rebuild the
Temple before the Messiah
arrives. Nevertheless, groups
of Israeli traditional Jews are
preparing seriously for the
construction of "an intermedi-
ate temple" before the Messia-
nic era.
There are now Talmudic
schools in Jerusalem studying
elaborate details of the Temple
service, the genealogy of pri-
ests who may conduct animal
sacrifices, and reconstructing
the ritual implements that will
be required should Temple
sacrifices be restored.
Clearly, a reconstituted tem-
ple would trigger off major
internal conflicts between tra-
ditionalist and modernists in
the Jewish community.
Instead of restoring the
ancient glory of national unity,
it could become a cause for
further polarization.
Unquestionably, it would
have massive consequences in
the Moslem and Christian
worlds. The Moslems speak of
launching a jihad, a holy war,
should their Al Aksa Mosque
become threatened by a Jew-
ish temple. Fundamentalist
Christians are thrilled by the
idea of the reborn temple,
since that would fulfill their
theological precondition for
the Second Coming.
While I have heard or seen
no response in the Vatican or
in the Catholic religious world
as yet, I would imagine a
rebuilt temple in Jerusalem
would not cause them rejoic-
ing. A renewed Jewish temple,
raised in glory and with pan-
ache, would be the death blow
of that ancient Christian belief
of the "wandering Jews" pun-
ished by God.
A truly brilliant daily and
weekly Jewish temple service,
with or without sacrifices,
would place Jerusalem front
and center in the religious uni-
verse, rivaling Rome, Constan-
tinople, and Mecca as the cyno-
sure of spiritual presence.
In the meantime, we con-
tinue to light the eight glowing
Chanukah candles, and that
will keep us joyful and faithful
for a long time until the Mes-
siah comes.

national relations consultant to the

Chanukah, You Light Up Our Lives
name for Chanukah is "chag
urim," the Festival of Lights.
The Maccabees, after defeat-
ing the Syrian Greeks, came to
rededicate the Temple. When
they kindled the Eternal
Light, they found only enough
pure oil for one day. Neverthe-
less, they lit the lamp and a
miracle occurred: the light
burned for eight days, until a
fresh supply of oil arrived.
The Eternal Light is part of
the central structure of every
synagogue. It is called the
Eternal Light because it sym-
bolizes the presence of God,
which is eternally with us. And
it reflects the brightness of
Jewish tradition, reminding us
that Judaism is a continuing
process, a flame that can never
be extinguished.
The Biblical passage describ-
ing the lighting of the Menorah
in the sanctuary contains an
interesting lesson. After all
the instructions are given, we
are told, "And Aaron did so:
he lighted the lamps ... as the
Lord had commanded." (Num-
bers 8:3)
Rashi, the greatest Jewish
commentator on the Bible,
adds, "Aaron deserves praise
for doing exactly as God had
commanded him." Why should
Aaron be praised for doing
exactly what he should have
The answer is that on the
day of the dedication of the
sanctuary, Aaron, of course,
would want to kindle the Men-
orah. However, as time went
on and it became a routine
task, he still continued with
the same dedication as on the
first day. For this, he deserved
It is natural to begin an
activity with enthusiasm.
Usually, this enthusiasm cools.
But someone who is dedicated
understands that real satisfac-
tion is found not in beginning
an activity but rather in work-
ing at it regularly until results
are achieved. This requires
devotion, commitment and
concentration. People who do
these things deserve our
When the first Americans
were permitted to visit Cuba
after years of embargo, one of
the members of the official
delegation was a Jew. One
night he had a yahrzeit. He
asked for a synagogue and was
told there was one left in Old
Havana. To his dismay, it was
in a state of neglect and disre-
pair, with the minyan made up
of elderly Jews.
As the service began, the
bulb in the Eternal Light went
out. Of course, one can pray
without an Eternal Light, but
the members of the congrega-
tion were very upset. It was
evening and all the stores were
The visitor, a typical enter-
prising American, told them to
wait a minute. He went out to
the street, looked up and
down, and noticed a movie
house which displayed a large,
well-lit sign. The American
went up to the manager and
offered him money for one of
the colored bulbs in the sign.
The manager shrugged and
pointed out that if he was
crazy enough to climb up and
get it, he could have it. The
man did, but he burned his
fingers before he could finally
unscrew the light bulb. He
returned to the synagogue and
inserted the bulb. The Eternal
Light glowed warmly and the
congregation finished its pray-
If we want the Eternal Light
of Judaism to glow in our lives,
then we must take its message
into the marketplace of ideas.
The Biblical instruction to
create an Eternal Light can
find meaning in our time in the
words of the classic rabbinic
exposition on this command-
ment: "Anyone who performs
a mitzvah has kindled a candle
before God and by doing so one
revives one's own soul." (Exo-
dus Rabbah 36:3)
What this beautiful and sen-
sitive passage tells us is that
the Eternal Light is not to be
taken literally but symboli-
cally, as an inspiration to do
what is right, proper and good.
When we do these things, our
acts are as sacred as if we had
lit a candle in the Sanctuary
and presence of God.
On Chanukah, the lights of
the Menorah are kindled by
the shamash, the lead or ser-
vice light. Every Menorah has
such a special light, whose sole
purpose is to provide the spark
for others.
The importance of the spark
can be seen in the following
A young man who had
become an apprentice to a
blacksmith learned during the
course of his training how to
hold the tongs, how to lift the
hammer, how to smite the
anvil, and how to blow the fire
with the bellows. Having fin-
ished his apprenticeship, he
was chosen to be employed at
the royal smithery.
But the young man's delight
at his appointment soon
turned to despair when he dis-
covered that he had failed to
learn how to kindle a spark. All
of his skill and knowledge in
handling the tools were of no
avail because he had not
learned the most elementary
principle to light the fire.
Unless we are fired with the
conviction of what we do, then
what we do will be essentially
meaningless. Unless we find
that we are warmed by enthu-
siasm any project in which we

they are lost, they are dead,
only their heart is still func-
Now I understood, and I was
It is impossible, I told
myself. These mortally
wounded people were
wounded in the intifada. We
killed them, and now we shall
inherit their hearts? An insane
idea, I thought, completely
But at the same time, it is a
humane idea, and no humane
idea is so insane that it should
not be tried. And besides, who
am I to judge, and who am I to
determine one's longevity?
I asked my friend Dedi Zuc-
ker to join me. Together we
went on that same evening to
the hospital. It was a winter
night, rain was pouring down,
and I will never forget it.
We reached the doctors'
room thoroughly soaked, and
our shortness of breath added
to our extreme embarrass-
ment. What will we say to
them, what will we talk about?
How, exactly, will we begin
and explain why we came, and
what exactly we want, and
how in the end will the awful
words leave our lips: Give us
this heart.
The whole time I was there,

I had to imagine the patient
hovering between life and
death in Hadassah Hospital, a
man who wishes to live and
can be given life, in order that
I might be able to stand in the
middle of the doctors' room, in
the middle of the intifada, in
the middle of the rage and the
anger and to demand insis-
tently: Give us this heart.
But they did not give us the
heart, and the patient died
young. The Arab doctors told
us that had it depended solely
on them, the heart would have
been given, because they do
not need to be reminded of the
Hippocratic oath in order to
know their professional and
humanitarian obligation.
This weighty thing depends
not on them, but on the fami-
lies, and they are unfortunate

camps of Nablus, and in their

Even if they are persuaded,
it is impossible, and we will not
be given what we are seeking,
because those killed in the inti-
fada are martyrs, martyrs of
the entire Palestinian nation,
and the heart already belongs
to it, and who is authorized to
hand it over in the name of the
I wanted to answer them
that they are missing an
opportunity for a great moral
victory for their national upris-
ing, perhaps the greatet vic-
tory in their history, but I
guessed that they themselves
understood the magnitude of
the missed opportunity, and I
also did not want to mix Hip-
pocrates' words with a hypo-
crite's words.
We came out of there
silenced and perplexed, and I
thought 'this is what happens
when the heart stops beating
in an individual's chest and
starts beating in the chest of
an entire people. Then we call
it the Jewish heart, or the
Arab heart, and then every-
thing goes wrong, spoils and
We do not have a Jewish
heart, and they do not have an
Arab heart, but a personal,
human heart, and if following
our embroiled nationalism we
harden our heart, we will make
it as hard as Pharaoh's heart.
I tell this story in memory of
reserve soldier Ze'ev Traum; I
feel the need to tell it precisely
now. I tell it in honor of his
wife, Brenda Traum, and with
much love for his little chil-
dren. They are the sacrifice,
only they. Those who gave the
heart, saved one soul and filled
an entire world with hope.

Editor Reports On Trip To Latvia
Jewish Identity Still Strong In Riga
Northern California Jewish Bulletin
RIGA (JTA) Jewish com-
munities are undergoing a
rebirth in major cities through-
out the Soviet Union, but no
where is it more obvious than
in Riga: You can see it in the
children's eyes and hear it in
their voices.
The capital of Latvia boasts
the only all-day Jewish school
in the Soviet Union. The Riga
Jewish Day School, which has
been open since September,
already has 400 students and a
waiting list of 200, many of
whom come part time in the
evenings to take Hebrew or
Yiddish classes.
Judging by the enthusiasm
of the students who met with
American Jewish editors late
in October, the Riga school
already has earned an A plus
Said one beaming third-
grader, speaking through a
translator, "They teach better
in this school." Said another,
"I like being with other Jewish
kids." An older student, whose
parents moved from Moscow
so he could attend the school,
said, "I'm not afraid to be
Jewish here."
The studies, they admit,
aren't easy. Besides the usual
subjects ^aught in public
schools, these students study
five languages: Yiddish,
Hebrew, Latvian, English or
German, and their native lan-
guage, Russian. The first- to
lOth-graders attend school
from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
To demonstrate their Jewish
studies, members of the third-
grade class sang a number of
songs for the Jewish editors,
including the classic Hebrew
melodies "Hayveinu Shalom
Aleichem" and "Hava
Nagila," and Yiddish trea-
sures including "Oy Mein Kep-
pele" and "Shah Shtil."
Hone Bregman, the princi-
pal who was appointed with
the approval of government
officials, said the school is
emphasizing Jewish songs and
customs. "Many of the chil-
dren didn't even know when
New Years (Rosh Hashanah)
was when they came here," he
The school, which is located
in a building that was used as a
Jewish day school prior to
1940, also has its detractors,
who charge that Bregman is a
puppet of the Community
These Jewish activists com-
plain that far more time is
spent on secular studies than
Dr. Marcus Kogel, 86
Dr. Marcus D. Kogel, found-
ing dean of Yeshiva Univer-
sity's Albert Einstein College
of Medicine, died recently
after a long illness at the home
of his daughter, Dr. Isobel
Pollack of Croton-on-Hudson,
N.Y. He was 86 years old.
Dr. Kogel, whose first wife,
the former Fanny Irene Tomp-
son, died in 1976, is survived
by his wife, Dora, two daugh-
ters, Dr. Isobel Pollack of

Jewish ones. They also deride
the heavy emphasis on Yiddish
rather than Hebrew, especially
since they believe most of the
students will probably emi-
grate to Israel over the next
five years.
"It's not a Jewish school, it's
a school for Jewish children,"
one activist said.
Bregman responded that
Jewish education could be
enhanced if the eight-room
schoolhouse received needed
materials, including text books
from Israel and the Diaspora.
He handed out a wish list of
equipment that easily
exceeded $1 million and asked
that American Jews help fund
The school currently
receives some help from the
Jewish Cultural Society,
LOEK, which formed in Riga
about a year ago. Most major
cities throughout the USSR
have such societies, but Riga's
was the first to win govern-
ment approval.
The school is but one of the
many achievements of the
Riga society.
Despite the lack of full diplo-
matic relations between Israel
and the Soviet Union, the Lat-
vian group is promoting cul-
tural and social contacts with
the Jewish state. For instance,
an Israel cinema week has
been scheduled in Riga in Jan-
uary, and negotiations are
underway for joint projects in
agriculture and film produc-
Why is Jewish life in Latvia
so advanced compared to the
rest of the Soviet Union?
"Riga was a great Jewish
cultural center before the
war," said Bregman, the
school principal. "We have
strong Jewish roots here."
During its years as an inde-
pendent country, 12 Jewish
day schools and three Yiddish
daily newspapers existed in
Latvia. In 1935, Riga Jews
made up 47 percent of the total
of Latvian Jewry.
The Russians, who took over
Latvia in 1940, tried to erase
those Jewish roots; so, too, did
the Nazis.
In the Rumbuli forests out-
side the city, more than 27,000
Jews were executed in Decem-
ber 1941, including the Jewish
historian Simon Dubnow.
Although the Communists
never allowed the slaughter to
be memorialized by the Jews,
the cultural society finally has
won permission to erect a cor-
nerstone on the road adjacent
to the forests.
Today there are 24,000 Jews
left in Riga; there were 40,000
before the war.
Since Latvia was an inde-
pendent country far longer
than most other Soviet repub-
lics, the people there still
remember the days when reli-
gious worship was permitted,
and they cling to their past
Latvian customs and language
rather than accept the changes
the Russians have attempted
to impose.
As a result, the national
front movement In Latvia has
won heavy support in its bid to
become independent of the
Soviet Union. The front is
expected to win many seats in
the republic's chamber of
deputies during elections next
While Jews are involved in
the national front, others still
question its real aims. The
older members of the commun-
ity have not forgotten that
Latvian fascists helped the
Nazis with their extermination
For these Jews, the school in
Riga is seen as an easy target
for future anti-Semitic action.
Yet they know the school must
go on if the community is to be
Ilya Kolomeyts, chairman of
the school's board of trustees,
said through an interpreter.
"The very fact of this school's
existence has set off a chain
reaction throughout the coun-
try. We are witnessing an
incredible process of reassimi-
lation, of Jews who had all but
forgotten they were Jewish
suddenly recognizing their
true identity and bringing
their children here."
And, as he pointed out, the
children want their Jewishness
back. You can see it in their
eyes and hear it in their voices.
Former Nazi Denaturalized
WASHINGTON (JTA) A former Ohio businessman,
who is accused by the U.S. government of having served
during World War II in the Death's Head Battalion of the
Nazi Waffen SS, was stripped of his U.S. citizenship, after
failing to respond to charges filed in federal court. U.S.
District Court Judge John Pratt ordered Jakob Frank
Denzinger, 65, of Akron, Ohio, to be denaturalized.
German Policemen Sentenced
BONN (JTA) Four West German policemen have been
given short prison sentences and fined for inciting racial
hatred and praising the Nazis. The four men in their early
20s were sentenced last month in a court in Eutin, in the
state of Schleswig-Holstein, to prison terms of two months
and two weeks each.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath
the same is Bethlehem. And Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave"
(Gen. 35.19-M
VAYISHLAH Approaching the boundary of the land of Seir
where his brother Esau dwelt. Jacob prudently sent messengers
ahead to inform Esau of his coming and of his wealth. The
messengers returned with the news that Esau was advancing
toward Jacob with 400 men. Terrified, Jacob divided his camp
into two sections, so as not to lose all in the event of an attack. He
sent gifts to Esau and prayed God to save him from his brother.
Jacob crossed the stream of Jabbok with his camp. There, as he
stood alone, an angel approached and wrestled with him. At the
end of the struggle, the angel declared: "They name shall be
called no more Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God
and with men, and hast prevailed" Genesis 32.19). Thus encour-
aged, Jacob met Esau, whom he treated with the utmost
deference. Embracing, the two brothers kissed, wept, and were
reconciled. Jacob journeyed on to Shechem. There the rape of
Jacob's only daughter, Dinah, by the prince of that city, led to the
vengeful destruction of Shechem by two of Dinah's brothers.
Proceeding to Beth-el, Jacob kept the vow he had made to return
thithere. On the way, Rachel gave birth to Jacob's last and
youngest son, Benjamin. But Rachel died in childbirth, and Jacob
buried her on the way to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem.
