On August 12, at 12 noon,
I Temple Sinai of Palm Beach
County, Delray Beach, will make
an "Historic March" from the
ICason United Methodist Church
I at 342 North Swinton Avenue,
I Delray Beach, to their new home,
14.2 miles away, at 2475 Atlantic
| Avenue, Delray Beach.
At that time, Rabbi Samuel

[Rothstein, Officers, Board
I Members and the Founders, in
conjunction with the Board of
Directors of the Cason Methodist
Church, will take turns carrying

Temple Beth El Announces Building Expansion
It has been a mere seven years
[since Temple Beth El of Boca
I Raton opened its doors as the
Ifirst permanent Jewish House of
Worship in Boca Raton. During
that time, Beth El has been
witness to the explosive growth
of our area; its membership
growing from 350 families in
May, 1977 to its current size of
11,225 families.
Rabbi Merle E. Singer,
I spiritual leader of the congrega-
tion for the past six years states,
i'The population increases in our
I area have, quite understandably,
1 had an impact on the growth of
lour congregation. However, I
I personally feel that the high
[caliber of our lay leadership and
the quality and variety of our
programs and education depart-
ments have played a more
important role."
Jim Baer, who, in addition to
serving as president of the
Temple, was the founding
president of the South County
Jewish Federation and is actively
involved in numerous Jewish and
communal organizations, also
shares Rabbi Singer's senti-
ments. Additionally, he states,
"There is a pressing need for
expanded facilities. We are
presently serving 500 children in
seven classrooms on double
sessions. In order for Temple
Beth El to continue to offer
premium programs, we have
developed, under the guidance of
Alvin Cohen, Building Devel-
opment Chairman, a building
which will efficiently serve our
congregational family. The
excitement and enthusiasm
expressed by the congregation is
The Building Program will be
developed in three phases. Phase
One will include the construction
of a two story classroom
building. Due to the unique slope
of the land on which the Temple
is located, both floors will be on
ground level. Also the Sisterhood
Judaica Shop will be expanded

A Man Driven to Punish By Death
Israel's Aircraft Industries
Will Produce F-15 Fuel Tanks
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Defense
establishment's Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) has
completed manufacture of a series of special fuel tanks
for F-15 fighters in use with the U.S. Air Force,
designed to increase the plane's internal fuel capacity
by 70 percent.
IAI BUILT 50 SETS of the tanks for the American
manufacturer of F-15s, McDonnell-Douglas, under a $30
million deal as part of an agreement whereby the U.S.
orders parts in Israel to reciprocate for Israeli purchases
in the U.S.
Unlike conventional extra fuel tanks which are
placed under the wings of aircraft, the conformal tanks,
which are also produced in the U.S., are attached to the
plane's fuselage. They are specially contoured to
prevent additional drag at subsonic speeds and create
far less drag at supersonic speeds than the conventional
under-wing external tanks.

Nation of Islam.
In 1966, Ben Holman, who had
written an expose of the Black

castigated in a speech by
"Minister Louis X," and then
threatened by participants at the

Paul Delaney, now deputy
national editor of the New York
Times, who became a target of
the Nation of Islam in the early
1970's when he was threatened in
the Black Muslim's newspaper
after writing a series of articles
on the group for the Times.
The ADL report included the
following as examples of
Farrakhan's hostility to Jews
and Israel.
DURING 1972 and 1973, a
bookshop run by the Nation of
Islam carried the long discred-
ited, anti-Semitic diatribe known
as "The Protocols of the Elders of
Zion" and an equally anti-Semitic
book titled "A History of Jewish
Crimes," published in Pakistan.
During the 1970's, according to
ADL, anti-Semitic and anti-
Israel propaganda was common-
place in the Nation of Islam
Muhammad Speaks publication.
In 1972, for example, an article
tried to justify the murder of 11
Israeli athletes that year at the
Munich Olympics, claiming that
they represented an "oppressive"
society that "cannot be regarded
as innocent.'

FARRAKHAN'S attacks on
Jews and the State of Israel,
ADL said, should be viewed
against the background of Nation
of Islam links to Arab nations
Khaddafi's Libya in particular
and the Palestine Liberation
The ADL report said Nation of
Islam ties to Libya go back more
than 10 years when Muhammad
Speaks revealed that Libya had
extended a loan of $2.9 million to
the organization. Only last year,
the Nation of Islam sent two
representatives to a conference in
Libya organized by President
Khaddafi. In February of this
year, Farrakhan, himself, in a
speech at the University of
California at Los Angeles, justi-
fied PLO terrorist activities.
Farrakhan's long record of
espousing violence and extrem-
ism culminated earlier this year
in attempts to intimidate the
black and white communities. In
addition to issuing threats
against Washington Post
reporter Coleman and American
Jews, Farrakhan declared in an
article in the February issue of
the magazine Essence:
"If America allows anything to
happen" (to Rev. Jackson) .
the covenant between black
America and this government
will be broken forever. That is
why white people ought to think

Farrakhan lashed out at black
leaders who do not share his
point of view. "Every (black)
leader," he was quoted as saying
in the press, "should be held
accountable at the cost of his or
her life. Death should be the
penalty for traitorous activity."
In April, the ADL report
noted, Farrakhan tried to justify
his threats against Coleman by
claiming that the implied "death
sentence" he had pronounced on
him would only be carried out
under the jurisdiction of a future
black state guided by Islamic
law. "When divine law is
established," he said, "and our
nation is formed out of that law,
then these traitorous acts will be
punished by death."
At the philosophical core of
Farrakhan's Nation of Islam
group is separation of blacks and
whites and openly-expressed
hatred of the white race. In
March of this year, Farrkhan, in
a radio broadcast, told his
listeners that integration is a
"hypocritical trick used by white
people to deceive black people
into making us believe that our
400-year-old enemy had all of a
sudden become our friend." In
the same speech, he repeated the
Nation of Islam's oft-stated call
for a separate black state.
IN THE course of the broad-
cast, the League noted,
Farrakhan declared, "we will
come to power one day soon .
and the white man is not going to
stop us from executing the law of
God on all of you who fall under
our jurisdiction this is a

Farrakhan, who was born in
New York and brought up in
Boston, once pursued a career as
a singer of calypso and country
songs. He was recruited to the
Black Muslim movement by
Malcom X, who was assassinated
in 1965. Farrakhan served under
Malcolm X at the Nation of
Islam's Harlem Mosque and
became head of it when his
mentor was killed, according to
the League's report.

Immigration Judge Orders
Expulsion of Ukrainian
CLEVELAND (JTA) A U.S. Immigration
Court judge has ordered the expulsion of John
Demjanjuk, a Ukrainian-born retired auto worker whose
U.S. citizenship was revoked in 1981 after he was found
guilty of having lied about his collaboration with the
Nazis when he entered the U.S. 30 years earlier.
DEMJANJUK, who claimed when he came to the
U.S. in 1951 that he had been a draftee in the German
army during World War II, was identified as a former
guard at the Treblinka death camp where he was
involved in the torture and death of thousands of Jews.
His brutality caused him to be known as "Ivan the
Terrible" among camp inmates.
Judge Adolph Angelelli ordered Demjanjuk to leave
the U.S. voluntarily within 30 days or face deportation
to the Soviet Union. The order, issued on May 23, was
made public last week. Demjanjuk's lawyer, Mark
O'Connor, said the order would be appealed.
Immigration Service officials are proceeding in Federal
Court with a separate request by Israel for Demjanjuk's

Barak said in a radio interview
that some of the groups attack-
ing IDF personnel acted on
orders from Lebanese influenced
by Iran and others affiliated with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. The attacks will
continue, he said, until a Leb-
anese armed force capable of
preventing terrorist activity is

south Lebanon. That will take

Haig Memoir
U.S. Could Have Avoided Failure in Lebanon
(JTA) By now it is no
secret that former Secre-
tary of State Alexander
Haig believes that if the
United States had followed
his policy in Lebanon it
could have achieved the
goals it sought there,
avoiding the failure
demonstrated in the pull-
out of American forces
this year. He has been
making this point on
ABC-TVs "20-20" and
other television appear-
Haig makes a good case for his
argument on his account of his 18
months as Secretary of State,
"Caveat: Realism, Reagan, and
Foreign Policy."
He also convincingly denies
the charges that he gave Israel a
"green light" for its "Peace for
Galilee" invasion of Lebanon in
June. 1982, and instead stresses
that he strongly urged Israel not
to go into Lebanon.
BUT ONCE Israel acted, Haig
believes the U.S. should have
used the opportunity presented
Washington to achieve a reunited
Lebanon and advance the cause
of peace in the Middle East.
"The primary obstacle to peace
in Lebanon had been the presence
of two foreign armies the
Syrian peacekeeping' force and
the military arm of the PLO -
each in its own right stronger
than the Lebanese army," Haig
wrote. 'This de facto occupation
had stripped the central govern-
ment of its authority and created
the conditions for strife among
the religious and ethnic commu-
nities in Lebanon."
While the Israelis were now a
third foreign army, Haig argues
that "Israel's military incursion
also created circumstances in
which it was possible, during the
fleeting momenta in which the
former equation of power had
been overturned, to remove all
foreign troops from Lebanon and
restore the powers of government
to the Lebanese.
"BEYOND THAT, a settle-
ment in Lebanon would have sig-
nificant consequences for Arab-
Israeli peace: Syria and the PLO,
the heart of the Arab opposition
to Camp David, had been de-
feated. With the PLO's 'military
option' gone, Israel's arguments
against granting a wider measure
of sutonomy to the Arabs in the
West Bank and Gaza would be
"There would be a fresh oppor-
tunity to complete the Camp
David peace process, including
measures that would have given
the Palestinians in the West
Bank and Gaza political control
over their daily lives."
Haig believes that the U.S. had
to act quickly and he argues that
the effort was being achieved by
tightening the pressure on the
PLO at the time when President
Reagan told him on July 5 that
he would leave office immediately
and not wait until George Shultz
had been confirmed as Secretary
of State as originally planned
after he was fired in June.
REAGAN announced the next
day that the U.S. would commit
troops to a peacekeeping force
and because of this and other
events the PLO decided to play
for time rather than leave at once
as Haig had sought, the former
official contends. But Haig also
charges that his policy in
Lebanon was damaged in
Lebanon also by statements by
Defense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger, National Security
Advisor William Clark and
others who sent contradictory
signals to the PLO and the Arab
countries at a time Haig was
trying to keep the pressure on the
PLO so that they would leave.
In fact, "Caveat" is replete
with examples of statements by
Weinberger and others which
Haig said damaged U.S. policy
not only in the Mideast but else-
Haig, who stresses that he
supports Reagan's reelection,
defines "Caveat" as "a warning,"
a warning that he hopes the
President will heed in order to
achieve an effective foreign
policy. As the one member of the
new Administration with experi-
ence in foreign affairs, Haig was
concerned that too many people
like White House Counselor
Edwin Meese, Chief of Staff
James Baker or Weinberger, with
little or no experience in interna-
tional affairs, were making deci-
sions in the field.
should be the Administration's
voice on foreign affairs, or the
vicar, as he put it, and naturally
he thought it should have been
him. Regardless of this, it is
shocking to read that Haig could
almost never get in to see
Reagan, especially alone.
Yet, the book leaves the ques-
tion open to how Haig, a veteran
of the army and its vast bureauc-
racy and of the Nixon White
House, not to mention someone
who worked for Henry Kissinger,
could have allowed himself to be
undercut by the White House
staff as he charges.
Part of it was due to Haig's
personality which grated on the
close-knit Californians in the
White House. His efforts to
achieve the spotlight did not sit
well with them.
But Shultz, who is a team
player if there ever was one, also
became the victim of anonymous
White House sources after the
Lebanon debacle. Yet, it is also
difficult to understand how Haig,
with all of his White House expe-
rience, failed to realize that
things were being run as they
were because the President
wanted it that way.
AS THE rocky year after
Haig's departure demonstrated
this had unfortunate conse-
quences for U.S.-Israeli relations.
Hsig came into office as Secre-
tary of State not only as a friend
of Israel but one who valued the
strategic importance of the
Jewish State and as one of the
few American leaders who was
not taken in by the Arab
"moderates." Shultz had to reach
this point through bitter expe-
Haig describes several times
when he prevented the Adminis-
tration from taking anti-Israel
acts or at least softened up
efforts by Weinberger and others
to punish Israel by a complete
cutoff in arms after the bombing
of the Iraqi nuclear reactor and
the invasion of Lebanon. He de-
scribes his last minute overturn-
ing of Clark's decision to support
a United Nations Security
Council resolution censuring
Israel after the Lebanese inva-
Haig demonstrates a warm
understanding for the Israelis as
evidenced by a description of
former Premier Menachem Begin
in which he said it is "nonsense to
accuse Begin of having a Masada
"Begin certainly believes that
Israel is besieged, but his entire
motive is to preserve the lives of
Jews," Haig wrote.
"HE HAS no complex' -
only the inescapable memory of
the Holocaust. His letters, his
conversation, his speeches
and, unquestionably, his
thoughts were dominated,
when he was Prime Minister, by
the sense that the lives of his
people had been personally en-
trusted to him. He once said,
when asked what he wanted to be
remembered for, that he wished
to be known to history as the
man who established the borders
of the State of Israel for all time."

Heated contro-
versy still surrounds the
Oberammergau Passion
Play which had its
season's premiere here
May 20 attended by thou-
sands of distinguished
guests, including the
Prime Ministers of
Bavaria and Baden-
Wuerttemberg, Franz
Josef Strauss and Lothar
Mayor Klement Fend of Ober-
ammergau insisted that charges
of anti-Semitism in the play's
content were unfounded and un-
acceptable to the local townsfolk
who have produced and acted in
it every tenth year for the past
350 years.
BUT THIS was strongly dis-
puted by the members of an
interfaith delegation from the
United States who witnessed the
performance and attested that
the play "remains marred by a
deep and pervasive anti-Jewish
orientation." The delegation
sponsored by the American
Jewish Committee, included two
prominent Christian scholars
Prof. Eva Fleischner, a Roman
Catholic author and theologian
and the Rev. Dr. William Harter'
a Presbyterian Church leader.
Rabbi A. James Rudin, the
AJCommittee's National Inter
religious Affairs director, one of
the leaders of the group, summed
up their reaction in a statement
di MunM; T*16 14 Passion
Play is fundamentally flawed
and still perpetuates the perni-
cious myth that Jews are
eternally guilty for Jesus' cruel-
fucion," Rudin said.
He andI Mimi Alperin, chair of
the AJCommittee's Interrel-
igwus Affairs Commission, who
co-leader of the group, called
for stronger efforts to "eradicate
defamation of Jews and Judaism
that persist in the drama despite
revisions in the text.
L ^JP*, FEND readUy ac-
know edged that the version of
the play that was performed Sun-
day and will continue through the
jy4 season was the "traditional
version, not the amended so-
called "Rosner Passion," a
revised text proposed in 1977
which was widely viewed as rela-
tively free of anti-Semitic bias.
"The (local) community should

IZ lilT1 T,sion Gf Daieenber-
ger-Dedler. This decision should
be absolutely respected," the
Mayor declared.
He vehemently denied that the
traditinal text contains anti-
Jewish stereotypes. "Anti-
Semitism is foreign to the
historical origin of the play and
to its spiritual contents," he said,
adding that the production
remains a "prayer of
thanksgiving" of the whole
1984 version has in fact been re-
edited to conform with the
findings of Vatican Council II
which absolved the Jewish people
of collective guilt for the cruci-
fixion of Jesus. This was con-
firmed by a special working
group of the Roman Catholic
Church in West Germany which
took up the questions related to
Judaism, the Mayor said. Hedi-
missed the ongoing "debate on
this subject" as "old rope."
But Fleischner, a professor of
religion at Montclair State Col-
lege in New Jersey and author of
"The View of Judaism in German
Christian Theology Since 1946,'
declared in Munich that "The
Oberammergau Passion Phy
falls far short of the standards
called for by Vatican II" and the
1974 "Guidelines and Sugg*
tions for Implementing the Con-
ciliar Declaration "Nostra

Pheasant Walk Displays Its Feathers
Barry Ziskinder, Chairman of
I the 1984 Pheasant Walk
Federation-UJA Campaign, is
proud to announce that Pheasant
Walk has joined the growing
number of up-and-coming
committed Jewish communities
in South County. On Wednesday
evening, May 30, Pheasant Walk
I held its first campaign event in
I the history of the South County
I Jewish Federation.
The newly organized Pheasant
I Walk Committee included Dan
IBensimon, Marshall Bohrer, Dr.
Robert Bregman, Dr. Gary
Kaufman and Dr. Fred Swan in
I addition to Ziskinder. The
I Committee worked extremely
hard all year to produce a
I beautifully successful Wine and

land Speaker for the evening was
j Israeli-born, Danny Tadmore.
Danny Tadmore provided an
[entertaining and inspiring
[appeal. He sang a variety of
[Hebrew songs, performed a
Icomedy routine and shared
personal stories as a Lieutenant
|m the Israeli Army. Tadmore's
presentation was an obvious
[success. Looking out at the
crowd, one noticed a smile on
veryone's face, glowing with
emotion and sentimentality,
hands clapping to the sounds of
Itne guitar that Tadmore played
and a feeling of real community
rand identification. Tadmore's
appeal for involvement and
commitment came honestly and
passionately from his heart. All

Many residents of Boca Lago
have made important and varied
contributions both to Israel and
to the local Jewish community.
Dr. Edward Lerman and his
lovely wife Gertrude are indeed
making a most unique contribu-

Dr. Lerman practiced dentistry
in New Haven Connecticut for 40
years. He is a graduate of Tufts

of the Columbia School of Dental
Ed and Gert spend the months
of September and October at
Kibbutz AFIKIN in the Jordan
Valley. They participated in the
American Dental Volunteers for
Israel program. They operate a
dental clinic that serves the
kibbutz population of 15
hundred. There are 500 children
at AFIKIN. Dr. Ed and Gert
treat patients of varied back-
grounds. Many are Holocaust
survivors. Some have histories
that embrace pain, suffering and

factors by bringing her to live at
When they first arrived at the
kibbutz, they met Dina and Rafel
Fintsy. The Fintsys though
younger were to be their Israeli
"parents" guides and mentors. A
beautiful friendship was formed.
The Fintsys used their rare
privilege of a trip abroad to visit
the Lermans in the United
States. During their stay at the
Kibbutz, the Lermans lived in a
small three room apartment.
They receive script to use at the
local "PX." Meals are taken at
the common dining room. After a
long day at the clinic, Gert and
Ed rest and look at the lights of
Jordan flashing, in the evening
sky. Boca Lago seems far away.

In Charge
Former Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon has been put in charge of
special projects for the Likud
election campaign. The
announcement came only a day
after a group of parents whose
sons were killed in the Lebanon
war demanded that Sharon
remove himself from the Likud
election list.

Robin Eisenberg
Installed As
JCECE Officer
On Wednesday, May 23, The
Jewish Council of Early Child-
hood Educators held their
Annual Dinner and Installation.
At this time, Robin L. Eisenberg,
Director of Education at Temple
Beth El of Boca Raton, was in-
stalled as a VicePresident. The
JCECE is the umbrella organiza-
tion of 40 Jewish pre-schools in
Dade, Broward and Palm Beach
The major activities include
organizing two seminars for
teachers and principals, one in
August and one in January, sub-
regional workshop, annual
directors' conferences and
numerous opportunities to share
ideas and strategies.
As Vice-President, Mrs. Eisen-
berg will serve as a direct link
between Broward and Palm
Beach schools and the organiza-
tion, and be involved in planning
the various events throughout
the year.
Karen Weiss spoke in superla-
tives when describing their expe-
rience. "It was extremely motiv-
ating to see the commitment that
young men and women from all
over the U.S. have to the enrich-
ment of Jews in America, Israel
and abroad. As a group we were
strong in numbers and spirit. We
left with a strong feeling of con-
tinued support and the knowl-
edge that there is no limit to what
we may achieve with consistent
efforts in our communities."
Before a record overflow of
congregants at Temple Beth
Shalom in Boca Raton on Friday
evening, June 1, six women Bat
Mitzvah celebrants pledged
themselves to join in the move-
ment sponsored by the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry to
support Ida Nudel, Russian
Jewish emigration activist.
"Support for this courageous
woman enables her to continue
her struggle to be repatriated to
Israel and reunited with her
sister," indicated Myma Shin-
baum, Associate Director of the
National Conference, in her com-
munication to Dr. John M. Lowe,
Beth Shalom's Director of Adult

proven master of cantillation, the
women were awarded certificates
of merit and presented with

There were no parachutes, hot
air balloons or other trappings
borrowed from the annals of
Unusual Wedding Ceremonies.
But the marriage of
Sarah Brahin and Edward Dorf-
man, widow and widower, was
unusual just the same.
It also was a big surprise for
their 30 guests, who anticipated a
conventional ceremony in the
home of the bride's brother,
Bernard Brager.
Once the guests were assem-
bled at Brager's home, "They
said, Everybody in the car.' We
thought, 'The wedding's off,' "
said guest Yetta Schwartz of
Delray Beach.
Minutes later, when Mrs.
Schwartz learned the wedding
[ would take place west of Delray
I Beach on the construction site of
the couple's temple, she said she
envisioned the group standing
[ankle-deep in mud or dust.
Instead, guests sat on folding
I chairs assembled in three rows on
the well-swept concrete floor.

The absence of a roof allowed

"Oh, it was beautiful. Wasn't

[bride said afterward. Her groom,
171, is the four-year-old congrega-
tion's first and only president.

Both the bride and groom said
they were surprised when she was

International Science Seminar Honors Soviet Refusenik Scientists
Nobel Prize laureates and
experts in physics, mathematics
and the life sciences met on May
31 at Tel Aviv University for the
1984 International Science
Seminar, in honor of Soviet
refusenik scientists Jewish
scholars who have been forbidden
to work in their professions
because they applied for
permission to emigrate.
Some 100 scientists, including
Nobel Prize winners Prof. Emilio
Segre of the United States and
Prof. George Klein of Sweden,
were expected at the two-day
seminar, sponsored by TAU and
the Fabian Kolker Foundation.
Refusenik scientists unable to
leave the Soviet Union parti-
cipated in absentia. Their papers
were read by experts in their
respective fields, and published
along with other presentations at
the Seminar. Most of the Israeli
scientists who participated were
former Soviet refuseniks.
The Seminar took place on the
tenth anniversary of an inter-
national scientific conference.
scheduled to be held in Moscow
m July, 1974. It waa one of a
series of seminars organized by
Soviet refusenik scientists who
had been prevented by the
authorities from continuing then-
research. During the weekly
meetings, initiated in 1972,
refuseniks met with practicing
professionals to exchange
scientific ideas.
In 1974, members of the group
organized an international
conference which was eventually
cancelled owing to the denial of
entrance visas to Western scien-
tists and the harassment of
Soviet participants. In 1981,
Soviet authorities officially
banned the seminars. Prof. Victor
Breilovsky, the leader of the
group, was immediately
imprisoned and sentenced to 2'/i
years of internal exile. Doctors
Alexander Particky, Vladimir
Kislick and Isay Goldstein were
also arrested. They who parti-
cipated were still unable to leave
the Soviet Union and who parti-
cipated were harassed

TAU Physics Professor
Alexander Voronel, the organizer
of the forthcoming seminar, left
Russia at the end of 1974. One of
those imprisoned and denied the
right to continue working as a
scientist, he struggled for four
years before being granted an
exit permit.
"The Russians were afraid of
our knowledge, afraid of the
physicist's ability to create
atomic warfwho participated
were," he said. "After about 20 of
us applied for permission to
emigrate, we were all denied exit
and banned from continuing
research. It was as if we had been
forbidden to follow a normal way
of life. To meet with one another
and discuss science, to maintain
our intellectual ability, was a
question of survival."
The refuseniks became social
outcasts. A Russian law
forbidding individuals to work
below their qualifications made
job hunting all the more difficult.
"Eventually, some of us took
secretarial jobs requiring
scientific knowledge. Myself and
Prof. Marc Azbel, now a physics
and astronomy lecturer at Tel
Aviv University, prepwho parti-
cipated wered material for a
scientific abstract but were even
rooted out of that job by the
Finally, in order to maintain
links with the scientific world,
the refuseniks established a
weekly science seminar which
they held in private homes.
"After a while, we began inviting
Western visitors to our meetings,
which put the authorities in a
difficult position. On the one
hand, they were involved in an
ideological war with the Western
world. On the other hand, they
were very interested in scientific
contacts. Eventually, in order to
put a stop to the meetings, they
began accusing us of spying and
sending secret material to outside
intelligence sources. We were all
threatened with treason."
After the official banning of
the seminars, moat of the
participants finally received
permission to emigrate to Israel.
Prof. Victor Breilovsky is still in
Moscow, unable to leave.
According to recent reports,
there who participated were as
many as 40,000 Jewish Soviet
scientists in a similar position.
The 1984 seminar will include
presentations scientific papers,
informal workshops and round-
table discussions on current
issues in the life sciences, exact
sciences, mathematics and
engineering. Minister of Science
and Development Yuval Ne'eman
as well as other senior govern-
ment officials will attend the
gathering. It will end with a
human rights program devoted
to restrictions on scientific
freedom and civil liberties in the
Soviet Union.

Two refuseniks were
imprisoned for activities
connected with their applications
to emigrate to Israel.
both construction engineers from
Kiev, have been waiting with
their families over five years for
permission to leave. Cherniak, 35,
was sentenced to four years
imprisonment with foreclosure of
personal property for "forgery"
and "embezzlement" under
Articles 83 and 194 of the
Ukrainian Criminal Code, despite
the fact that all witnesses
testified in his favor at the trial.
His wife, INNA, believes he was
tried because he is a friend of
POC LEV ELBERT. Cherniak is
appealing the verdict. Otche-
retyansky, 44, served three
months in a labor camp in the
Fall of 1980, and was resentenced
in October 1983 for his refusal to
reclaim his passport, which he
had submitted to the OVIR office
with his initial application in
1979. His refusal to reclaim the
document appears to be a
symbolic renunciation of Soviet
citizenship, made to stress his
desire to leave.

sentence for her incarcerated

operation with the UN in
Moscow. The following day, after
reading the appeal over the phone
to a friend in Jerusalem, she and
Baiter were arrested by seven
KGB men, who forceably sent
them back to Riga after
searching them in a forest on the
outskirts of town and threatening
them with beatings.
In Riga, Tatyana was
summoned to the local
procurator, who threatened to
charge her with "parasitism" for
"making so much noise." She is
vulnerable to the charge because
her internal passport without
which she cannot get a job was
taken when she and her brother
were attacked in March
(NEWSBREAK, March 30,
1984). Concerning her husband,
the procurator said he would
"demand the maximum punish-
ment" at his trial. Both Tatyana
and her mother-in-law are trying
to have Zakhar's case transferred
to Chief Procurator Rekunkov's
office in Moscow.
Twenty-year old
Sukhumi, in the Soviet Republic
of Georgia, was released from
prison, where he served a one
year term for alleged draft
evasion. Although freed one
month early, on April 1, he was
told to report to the local draft
office on June 15.
Panarev protested the move,
saying he was unable to give the
required "oath of allegiance"
because he had applied to
emigrate. In what appears to be
an attempt at harassment, he
was then informed by Soviet
authorities that he "would serve
in any case." Military service, or
imprisonment for not serving, is
frequently used as a means of
thwarting emigration attempts.
A similar tactic was used against
another young refusenik, Simon
Shnirman of the Ukrainian town
of Kerch, who is serving a second
sentence for "draft evasion."
Panarev and his mother,
KLAVDIA, have been waiting
over ten years for permission to
emigrate to Israel to join his
aunt, Ida Shteinberg.
INNA, will have to undergo a
second operation for a cancerous
growth on her neck. Last
operated on in October 1983, she
has since received no treatment,
due to lack of certain medical
equipment in the USSR. After an
April 27 meeting with Naum,
OVIR Chief Rudolf Kuznetsov
denied Inna permission to go
abroad for treatment. Offers were
extended from Israel, Sweden,
France and the United States.
Naum protested Kuznetsov's
refusal to the Central Committee
of the Soviet Communist Party.
Meanwhile, in the U.S., scientists
attending the 61st Statistical
Mechanics Meeting at Rutgers
University on May 10 and 11 sent
appeals to Soviet authorities on
Inna's behalf.

Latin Jews Begin To Feel
Adverse Economic Conditions
Adverse economic
conditions in South
America are beginning to
affect members of the
Jewish community there,
particularly in Chile and
Brazil, according to
reports presented to the
Board of Directors of the
World Council of
Synagogues, the interna-
tional arm of Conservative
Discussing the situation in
Chile, Rabbi Angel Kreiman, the
Grand Rabbi of Chile's 30,000-
member Jewish community, said
that the economic situation in the
country "has never been so bad
before. The country suffers from
a 30 percent unemployment rate
which finds some families in our
synagogues without jobs and in
need of food, clothing and other
living assistance."
KREIMAN, who has been in
Chile for the past 15 years, said
that the sisterhoods of the three
Conservative congregations were
working closely with these
families to assure that they were
provided with every need. He
said there were at least 60
families in Chile on the poverty
level requiring assistance.
The rabbi also reported the
emergence of neo-Nazism in the
country. He said that there were
incidents of swastikas daubed on
billboards and that members of
rightwing extremist groups wear
armbands with swastikas. He
ffffrl the Jewish community
maintained excellent relations
with government officials.
However, these officials do little
to discourage these Nazi
Kreiman said that there are
frequent pro-Palestinian demon-
strations, which are adding to the
tensions. Since there are 300,000
Arabs in Chile, the government is
"careful" in dealing with the
demonstrations and "does little
to discourage them," he said. He
expressed belief that the death
earlier this month of Nazi Walter
Rauff would do little to reduce
neo-Nazi activities in chile.
A SERIOUS situation in
Brazil was also reported by Rabbi
Marcelo Rittner of the
Congregation Israelite Paulista
in Sao Paulo. He said the nation's
estimated 20 percent unem-
ployment rate has caused a
number of Jews to lose their jobs,
particularly in well-paid profes-
sions such as engineering. He
emphasized, however, that condi-
tions had not yet reached the
poverty level in Sao Paulo or Rio
de Janeiro.
Rittner stated that many
Brazilians, including Jews, wars
working for less than a minimum
wage merely to subsist. He indic-
ated that members of his
congregation had set up a job
bank to assist those in need of
employment, although no family
as yet had reached the poverty
proportions of Chilean Jews.
