ush Planning 10 New Settlements Over Passover
Itzhak sh argil

kVIV (JTA) The
lunim announced that
luld establish 10 new
pts on the West Bank
Passover holidays to
jnerasable facts during
of confusion at home
bsure abroad." The an-
tent took many
Bnt officials by surprise
as the Cabinet is not
have approved the
rn Minister Moshe
addressing senior of-
t)f his ministry here
had urged Israel to go
settlement activity on
It Bank out of con-
for Egyptian sen-
\r the subject.
IINISTER of Transport
Haim Landau, a Likud hardliner
who was one of the two Cabinet
ministers to vote against the
Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty last
month, appeared to confirm the
Gush announcement and gave it
his blessings. He told a luncheon
of the Tel Aviv Insurance Club
that 10 settlements would be set
up in Judaea and Samaria and
other regions during the chol
hamoed days of Passover, adding
"let them grow in numbers."
Deputy Premier Yigael Yadin
immediately issued a statement
saying he knew of no government
decision to start new settlements
now or during Passover.
It was reported, meanwhile,
that the Gush plan3 were ap-
proved by Agriculture Minister
Ariel Sharon, another outspoken
opponent of the peace treaty, and
by the Jewish Agency's set-
tlement department.
HOWEVER, for the time
being, the Gush must limit itself
to cornerstone-laying ceremonies
and the several hundred would-be
settlers expected to participate
must avoid clashes with local
Arabs and with the Israeli troops
sent to guard them.
On the strength of Sharon's
approval, the West Bank
Military Government reportedly
issued permits for the corner-
stone ceremonies during
Passover week. Landau refused
to say precisely where these will
take place or on what date. "For
me it is enough to know there will
be such settlements," he told the
insurance executives.
Dayan's remarks earlier in the
week seemed intended to avoid
any provocative actions by Israel
so soon after the signing of its
treaty with Egypt and on the eve
of negotiations to implement the
treaty. He said that while set-
tlement activity on the West
Bank must continue, if a set-
tlement program is carried out it
should not harm Israeli-Egyptian
relations. He cautioned that
Israel must remain aware of the
Egyptian attitude on settlements
and take it into account.
not be implemented immediately,
Dayan said, noting that it will
take another year to negotiate
with Egypt over autonomy on
the West Bank and Gaza Strip
and another five years will elapse
before the future status of those
territories is determined.
Meanwhile, Minister of
Commerce and Industry Gideon
Patt fiercely attacked both the
Gush plant and their approval by
Landau. Speaking on Israel
Radio this afternoon Patt
.stressed that there was no
government decision to establish
any new settlements on the West
Bank and that Landau spoke
only for himself.
"I participated in all Cabinet
sessions and I did not hear of any
decision to erect any new set-
tlements," he said. He said most
Cabinet members were also
unaware of any cornerstone-
laying next week. "The gover-
nment deals with settlements
one-by-one. We have never taken
a global approach to set-
tlements." In any event, "the
timing is wrong. I believe in
strengthening the existing
settlements. There is so much to
do without taking valueless,
demonstrative steps like this," he

From exodus to freedom had

THE DVORKINS are the first

the next few months as a result of
the Soviets' decision to grant exit
visas to approximately 14,000
Jewish families who have applied
for visas. After waiting in Rome

Tampa Group Living Facility
Proposed for Frail Elderly
When Gov. Bob Graham
opened the State Fair last week,
he spoke at the annual Gover-
nor's Luncheon of the "excessive
and tragic practice" of forcing
older citizens from their homes.
He said 35,000 senior citizens last
night slept in nursing homes or
mental hospitals, many of those
in the hospitals not because they
are psychotic but because some
community programs are
This is the same theme Cindy
Sper, public relations chairman of
the Frail Elderly Committee, has
been echoing as she has visited
various meetings in Tampa to
discuss the first group living
facility proposed for the frail
elderly in Tampa.
The Frail Elderly Committee,
Dr. David Richter, chairman, has
as one of its first tasks, to
identify prospective residents for
this project. Who is a prospective
resident? Persons over 60 years
of age, having at least one
handicap preventing them from
living alone, willing to try group
living and the concept of sharing,
alert enough to live without 24
hour supervision, able to assume
responsibility for their own
medication and willing to par-
ticipate in orientation sessions
and weekly resident meetings.

\t the first Soviet Jewish
ly to arrive in Tampa in
1979, several days ago. The
community has pledged to
resettle a minimum of six
Russian families during the year.
"This will require additional
dollars, dollars will be spent
saving lives. There are now over
9,500 Soviet Jewish emigrants in
Rome awaiting their visas to go
to Israel and the U.S. There are
strong indications that as many
as 4,000 to 6,000 Soviet Jews per
month will be allowed to leave.
We cannot tell them that we
cannot afford to absorb them
here or in Israel," Zielonka
Campaign workers were also
made aware of the cost of peace in
Israel. Human needs do not
disappear with a peace treaty.
There will be new burdens as well
as continuing burdens.
Education, food, housing, child
care, youth centers and services
to the aging will continue to be
needed. Human needs will
continue to grow.
Ben Greenbaum, Federation
president, reported "that the
Board of Directors has just
adopted a record budget for local
community services. To meet this
budget of needs, the community
must respond in a positive way;
even a modest increase on every
open card will bring a result that
will strengthen the people of
Israel and our own Jewish
community in Tampa,"
Greenbaum concluded.

Celebrating Passover
Let us read the Haggadah this year with special
attention to the story of the Exodus from Egypt,
which launched the thousands of years-old
celebration of Passover we are now preparing our-
selves to observe.
Once again there is an Exodus this time from
the sands of the Sinai down to Sharm el-Sheikh for
which untold thousands of Israel's best young men
and women gave their lives. The Exodus now is in
the cause of peace. In ancient times, it was a flight
from servitude at the hands of the Egyptian
The Exodus today presages a new era in
relations between Israel and Egypt that can open a
period of unprecedented progress in the history of
both nations. And a period of unprecedented co-
operation between them.
But let us also read the Haggadah fully aware
that the Exodus from the Sinai means a return to
another Canaan surrounded by ancient and in-
transigent enemies who can turn the new era upside
down to Israel's disadvantage at a moment's notice.
As we begin the story of Passover with Avadim
hayenu VPharaoh b'Mitzrayim, let us pray along
with Egyptian men of good-will that the opening
sentence of the Haggadah, recounted as it is in the
past tense, means precisely that. "We were slaves
unto Pharaoh in Egypt."
But let the past history of Jewish hopes and
aspirations in Israel not escape us. Let the Haggadah
be alive with its special meaning this Passover: The
bitter frustrations experienced in the search for peace
lurk ever in the background to declare that peace and
freedom can be as much of a war as war itself.
"And if the Lord, our God, had not taken us out
from there (Egypt) with a strong hand and out-
stretched arm, then we and our children and our
children's children would still be slaves unto Pharaoh
in Egypt."
Despite God's blessed canopy about us, peace
and freedom are not ultimate ends, but merely
hopeful beginnings toward which all mankind
constantly aspires.
Not One Person Said No
Spring fever (or something) has definitely
caught hold of Tampa. We knew that something was
different but just were not able to put our finger on
it. But now the truth is out.
We overheard the presidents of the Jewish
Community Center and the Hillel School and the
Jewish Social Service bragging. Each was sure theirs
was the only board to which the following statement
belonged. "Everyone we asked to serve on our board
said, 'Yes!' We are so lucky to have our first choice
all down the line." Imagine their shock to learn it was
true of all three groups.
What a compliment to a community. What a
fine reputation for Tampa to have! People willing to
give of their time and serve. People not having to be
begged. Having more people standing by to help. It
is enough to make a nominating committee gloat for
hours. Not one person said "No."
While each president wanted to claim his
organization was unique, each realized that by
sharing this wonderful experience a new community
concept was being developed. And it will last longer
than Spring.
We're proud of you, Tampa.

Ministry of Defense has
estimated that the evacuation
from the Sinai over the next three
years will cost Israel IL 10.5
billion. This includes the enor-
mous task of dismantling, trans-
ferring and rebuilding various
structures, the setting up of a
new defense line and the building
of three air fields in the Negev,
two of which the United States is
helping to construct to replace
the two Israel is abandoning in
the Sinai.
ISRAEL IS to complete the

FLO Official Touring U.S.
WASHINGTON (JTA) A top official of the
Palestine Liberation Organization is in the United States
for three weeks to promote PLO ideas, on the invitation of
groups at four Ivy League Universities and the Chicago
Council for Foreign Relations.
The official, Shafik Al Hout, is identified as director of
the Beirut office of the PLO which maintains its
headquarters in that city. He was granted a U.S. visa,
cleared by Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, on the grounds
that under the McGovern Amendment the burden of proof
that he will not be a threat to the United States, rests with
the U.S. government.
Groups at Harvard, Columbia, Yale and Princeton, as
yet unidentified, invited him. It is understood that his
first appearance will be at Columbia University. He
arrived last weekend in New York.
Following the signing
ceremonies of the peace treaty
between Israel and Egypt there
was a very glamorous State
dinner at which the only rep-
resentative from the west coast of
Florida was Stuart S. Golding,
well known real estate builder
and developer.
"It was a real thrill to be
present at this occasion," said
Golding. "I was so very im-
pressed with Mr. Carter. One of
his acts of diplomacy was to
always allow Sadat to go first. He
was introduced first, he spoke
first. And the audience warmly
responded to his remarks that we
would have to work things out
with the PLO.
"Mr. Begin, on the other hand,
kept a very low profile. He said
that he had asked Mr. Carter for
permission to invite just one
special guest, the woman from
Sweden responsible for the Nobel
Peace Prize. 'Today I met both
with her and Mr. Sadat, and Mr.
Sadat and I agreed that Presi-
dent Carter should be nominated
for the Nobel Peace Prize next
December,' Golding quoted
Begin as saying. Golding con-
tinued, "And the President
responded by saying that he
would be in Sweden Dec. 10
Stuart Golding
providing Mr. Sadat and Mr.
Begin would also be there." Such
was the mood and give and take
between these men on the eve of
this historic day.
Golding sat at a table with the
governor of Rhode Island,
J. Joseph Garrahv: the corres-
pondent for L'Express stationed
in Israel, Heei Carmel; the Israeli
correspondent for Der Spiegel,
Henry Zoller; and Abie Nathan!

telling of some of his latest
private peace exploits.

Jeffrey Alan Hameroff, son of
Al and Terrill Hameroff, has been
awarded the rank of Eagle Scout.
Jeff, a senior at Leto High
School, is in Troop No. 315,
sponsored by the Wesley
Memorial Church. His Scout-
master is Joe Hoellerer. Jeff is a
member of National Honor
Society and will graduate 18th in
his class in June. He will enter
the University of Florida to
major in medicine.
Active in Scouts since he was a
Cub, Jeff completed his Scouting
career by being elected to the
Order of the Arrow. This award is
voted on by fellow Scouts. He
attended the National Boy Scout
Reserve, Camp Philmont, N.M.,
where he completed his 50 mile
hike requirement including back-
packing up a mountain.
Jeff's Eagle project was the
organizing and recruiting of
personnel to clear an area behind
a church in Town and Country to
be used as a picnic area. The
creation of a fire lane at this same
church was part of the project.
Jeff is the grandson of Honey
Gallin of Brooklyn and Tampa
and Dora Hurwitzof Norfolk, Va.

Adam Rosenberg Named Eagle Scout
Adam Lewis Rosenberg, son of
Stan and Madelyn Rosenberg,
was recently awarded the rank of
Eagle Scout. Adam is now a
freshman at the University of
Florida majoring in psychology.
He was a member of Troop No.
304, sponsored by the First
Reformed Church of Town and
Country, and his Scoutmaster
was Clarence Schlather.
Adam is following in his
family's footsteps as his father is
an Eagle Scout from Cleveland,
Ohio, and his brother, Jordan,
earned his Eagle Scout rank in
the same troop as Adam.
For his Eagle project, Adam
secured the names of han-
dicapped people living in the
Town and Country area and
distributed to them a nationally
recognized firefighters symbol of
a person unable to exit from a
home on their own. These
Milkers are placed on the win-
dows of bedrooms so firemen will
know at once that someone in
this room needs immediate help.
Adam also attended the National
Boy Scout Reserve, Camp
Philmont, N.M.
A graduate of Leto High
School, he was co-editor of Quill,
Leto literary magazine;
managing editor of Legend, Leto

Nineteen-year-old Arnold
Dvorkin quickly made friends
with Ra-anan Elozory, 18, a
sophomore at USF, and Rafael
Cherf, 17, who accompanied his
parents Garold and Svetlana in
their exodus from the Soviet
Union only two years ago. Lan-
guage proved no barrier for the
youths who conversed in
Russian. In the next few weeks
Arnold, together with his sister
and parents, will begin studying
# English.
Ben Greenbaum, president of
the Tampa Jewish Federation,
broke into a smile after listening
closely to the translators inter-
pret for the Dvorkins. "Every-
thing is 'Harasho'," said Green-
i, baum; "they feel good about
being here."
'"Tampa has grown up over the
past few years since the first
Soviet Jewish families came in
1976. Now, more than ever
before, our community is

| B. TERRY AIDMAN, presi
dent of Tampa Jewish Social
Services, said: "I'm proud to be
part of a community that has
opened its heart to newcomers
who have endured persecution
just because they are Jewish."
Praising the dedicated efforts
of the 40 volunteers who baked
4 goods for the family and helped
ready the new apartment for the
Dvorkins' arrival, Aidman said it

ing funds to add to the U.S.
government grant of $11,000 to
the Tampa community. The Fed-
eration has allocated $9,617 to
help resettle the Soviet Jewish
families expected in the next few
months, said Aidman.
Since July, 1976 when the
Dobrovitsky family arrived from
Odessa to resettle in Tampa, the
Tampa Jewish community has
welcomed three generations of
that Soviet Jewish family. Bella
and Viktor Dobrovitsky, accom-
panied by their children Regina
and Vitaly, were joined a year
later by Bella's parents, Ilya and
Rimma Kruzhkov.
Finally in March, 1978. the
Dobrovitskys were reunited with
Viktor's father, 67-year-old Lev
Dobrovitsky, and his daughter,
Zhana, son-in-law Leon
(Sheikhet) Dobrovitsky, who
took his wife's name upon
marriage, and their seven-year-
old daughter, Angela. Leon's

said as she watched the Dvorkins
thread their way through the
crowd to the cars that would
carry them to their new apart-

Resettlement Program is to
provide the Soviet Jewish
families with an opportunity for
religious, social and political
freedom that they didn't have
before and to help them under-
stand American life.''
As thousands of Tampa Jewish
families celebrate the traditional
Passover Seder and holiday fes-
tivities, the Dvorkins, for the
first time in their lives, will be
able to experience the joy of
being Jewish without fear.

Exodus Ends for Dvorkins
More than 2,500 years of Jewish history stands
between the Biblical Jews of ancient times who
fled the yoke of Egyptian oppression and the
Garri Dvorkins.
Garri, 44, his wife Lyudmila, 42, and their
children Arnold, 19, and Tatyana, 10, left the only
way of life they knew in the Soviet Union to
pursue a dream of freedom. With their arrival in
Tampa last Wednesday, the Dvorkins are leaving
behind memories of harassment by Soviet of-
ficials, denial of educational opportunities for
their children and the ostracism of neighbors who
could not comprehend why they wanted to leave
their native land.
After a tumultuous greeting at the airport by
40 members of the Tampa Jewish Federation'and
the Russian Resettlement Committee, the
Dvorkins reached the last stage of their journey
from oppression to freedom a new apartment
on Davis Island. As committee members helped
them unpack and prepare their first home-cooked
meal in the United States, the Dvorkins began to
experience the warmth of a community that
opened its heart to a Jewish family in need.
THE INITIAL planning for resettlement had
begun nearly six months ago, said Paula
Zielonka, chairman of the Russian Resettlement
Volunteer Committee. HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant
Aid Society) requested us to double the number of
Russian families our Tampa community had
taken in last year. The Dvorkins are the first of
approximately six families the Tampa Jewish
community will resettle.
The funds for resettlement have come from two
sources: the U.S. government, which has
authorized a $20 million bloc grant to com-
munities and the Tampa Jewish Federation,
which has provided matching funds. Under a bloc
grant formula determined by the Council of
Jewish Federations, the Tampa Jewish Fed-
eration is allocating $9,617 in matching funds
after receiving a bloc grant from the U.S. govern-
ment of $11,000 to resettle Soviet Jewish families
seeking a haven.
"In the past our community had relied entirely
on donations for furnishings and supplying the
apartments with foodstuffs for the Russian
families prior to their arrival," said Paula
"Now with the influx of families expected to
arrive within the next few months, supplemental
funds are needed to cover the cost of relocating
six families as HIAS had requested," she said.
The allocations from the U.S. government and the
Tampa Jewish Federation will cover rent,
utilities, and intensive language training in
GARRI DVORKIN is an architectural "model-
maker" along with his son Arnold. His wife
Lyudmila is a secretary-typist. Each member ol
the family will need many hours of language
instruction in English in order to be able to find
work and hold a job.
A team of volunteers mobilized by chairman
Paula Zielonka and professionally trained by
Anne Thai, executive director of Tampa Jewish
Social Service, stands ready to help with trans-
lation, medical and dental care, and orientation to
American life and customs.
During the next few weeks, a number of
dedicated volunteers will introduce the Dvorkins
to supermarkets, banks, public transportation,
schools, and Jewish homelife as well as
The main emphasis of our committee will be to
provide the Dvorkins with social contacts so they
will get to know other Jewish families in the com-
munity and feel wanted," said Zielonka.
Volunteers on the Russian Resettlement
Committee like Margie Bernstein and Mimi
Weiss are preparing homecooked meals so the
family can gradually learn about American meals.
OTHER VOLUNTEERS on the committee will
visit these families and try to establish a friendly
relationship, offering them Shabbat home
"We need the support and help of the entire
Jewish community to show the Dvorkins they are
wanted. We need families to invite them to
services at various temples and synagogues.
Most of the Russian families coming to Tampa
have been denied the opportunity to live as Jews
and so are unfamiliar with Judaism. We want to
give them a Jewish feeling," said Zielonka.
Another group of volunteers is offering
language classes to all the Russian families who
are already here and to those expected in the next
few months. These classes are given at night so
that those who are working during the day can
improve their language skills in the evening. Still
others help with conversational English directly
in the home at the request of the families.
Mrs. Bella Dobrovitsky, who came to Tampa
three years ago from the Soviet Union with her
husband Viktor, daughter Regina and son Vitaly,
was on hand at the Tampa airport to welcome the
"I RECALL what it was like for us as the first
Soviet family to come to Tampa in July, 1976,
and I remember how happy I was to be among
friends. I am glad the Jewish community took
such good care of us. Now my family, my mother
and father and all my relatives the Tampa Jewish
Federation has helped to resettle will do what we
can to make the Dvorkins feel at home," she said.

Jewish Interest in Concordat
mostly at attaining a new demo-
cratic equality of all religions
before Italian law. The special
status of Roman Catholicism in
Italy has created many situations
of uneven treatment.
ROMK (JTA) The 50th
anniversary of the signing of the
Italian Church-State Concordat
(incorporated into the Constitu-
tion in 1947) was greeted last
week with as much contention as FOR EXAMPLE: At present,

by the Italian Parliament, shows the teaching of religion in the

for a more frontal clash.
IF THE present government
crisis degenerates into a call for
premature general elections, the
evening-out of differences will
take even longer than now ex-
pected. Several of the contro-
versies directly or indirectly
involve the interests of Italian
Jewry. One is the recognition of
Roman Catholicism as the of-
ficial state religion in Italy as
decreed by the 1929 Concordat.
The Italian Senate suggested
the elimination of this concept.
But while the third draft of the
evision stated, "The principle of
Catholicism being the state
religion of Italy is no longer to be
considered binding," the fourth
draft softened the statement into,
"The recognition of the principle
... is no longer to be considered
Requests in the "note" to the
special committee for the Con-
cordat by the Union of Italian
lewish Communities, are aimed
Contesting this notion, the
Italian Senate requested the
Concordat committee to change
the status of religion in the public
school curriculum from "com-
pulsory" to "voluntary."
But again, the fourth draft of
the revision falls back to the
position of religion as a
"required" subject, offering the
possibility, however, of students
being excused on request, as in
the past.
ITALIAN JEWRY sides with
the Senate on this matter, in con-
sideration of the lesser psy-
chological pressures brought to
bear on Jewish children when left
free to choose or not choose to
study religion, rather than
having to ask permission to be
"excused" from attending a class
that is compulsory for the
A third matter bearing directly
on the future of Jewish in-
stitutions in Italy is the effect of
a law passed in 1975 aimed at the
transferral of all religious public
welfare institutions to the local
regional governments in Italy.
This law was amended in 1977
to exclude institutions spon-
soring "activity inherent to the
religious-educational sphere."
The 27 Jewish institutions spread
throughout Italy (schools,
nurseries, hospitals, social work
agencies, orphanages, old age
homes and social centers) caring
for the needs of Italy's 40,000
Jews, and 35 percent of the much
more numerous Catholic institu-
tions received exemption from a
hand-over to the state, on this
BUT IN THE present political
climate of radicalized contro-
versy, sections of the Socialist
and Communist parties have
objected to these exemptions.
The regional administration of
Piedmont has filed a lawsuit
against Jewish welfare insti-
tutions in the cities of the region
(Turin, Vercelli, Casale and
Alessandria), and the Jewish
nursery school of Rome, chal-
lenging the qualifications that
entitle them to remain under
Jewish management.
To illustrate the "religious-
educational function" of its insti-
tutions, the Union of Italian
Jewish Communities originally
pointed out the special Jewish
requirements for kosher food,
Sabbath and Jewish holiday
observance, the teaching and
observance of Jewish history, law
and tradition.
Reminded of this. Socialist
Party leaders replied by assuring
Italian Jewry that the case will
not be officially pursued by the
pirrty. But to date the tavrtwiHia* -

Senators Urge Statute Extension
More than one-third of the U.S. Senate has
joined Sen. Alan Cranston (D., Calif.) as co-
sponsors of a resolution he has introduced calling
on West Germany to extend or abolish outright
the Statute of Limitations against Nazi war
criminals. Unless some such action is taken, no
new prosecutions can be instituted after Dec. 31,
"War criminals should not be permitted to go
unpunished merely because of a statute of
limitations has expired," Cranston said.
"Because of the enormity of their crimes, there
should be no limit, in my judgment, on the time in
which they may be apprehended and brought to
Emphasizing that human

United States trade policy, the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry has told Congress that
the Soviet Union is using a loophole to circum-
vent the principles of the Jackson-Vanik Amend-
ment to the U.S. Trade Reform Act and is im-
porting devices which can be used for surveillance
and repression of its citizens.
Testifying at a hearing of the House Banking
Committee's subcommittee on International
Economics and Trade, Warren Eimnberg,
director of B'nai B'rith's International Council,
who represented the National Conference, told the
subcommittee which deals with export controls
and credits that the Soviets have been shipping to
the U.S. duty-free watch movements manufac-
tured in the USSR and assembled in the Virgin
"By using the Virgin Islands as a port, the
USSR has shown disregard for the purposes of
our laws," Eiaenberg said. "In allowing the
Soviet Union to circumvent the Trade Reform
Act, we allow the gradual erosion of the principles
of the Act, including the concern for emigration."
The Jewish Labor Committee expressed its
shock to the French Socialist Party on learning
that it had invited the PLO to send observers to
its annual conference.
In a letter addressed to the party with which it
had worked during the Nazi occupation, Jacob
Sheinkman, president of JLC, said, "This is the
first time such a step has been taken by a major
democratic socialist party. The invitation ex-
tended to the PLO, an organization which
preaches and sows terror and murder, is certainly
not in keeping with the humanitarian, democratic
principles which underlie our movement."
A noted Jewish leader who was asked by Prime
Minister Begin to join him on his trip to Cairo
Monday called on the western world, especially
the U.S., to give Egypt and Israel "sufficient
time to give their fragile peace its chance to
cohere and to hold fast."
Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler, immediate past
president of the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organizations, explained
that Israel and Egypt need time "to give sub-
stance to their formal agreement, time to nurture
that trust which may embolden others to take
risks for peace, and time for a moderate Pales-
tinian leadership to develop so that Israeli-Pales-
tinian co-existence on the West Bank and in Gaza
will have its slim chance for success."
Rabbi Israel Klavan
Solomon Trau
President Assad of Syria said that the signing
of a separate peace treaty between Israel and
Egypt would force Syria, Iraq and Jordan "to go
to war agvinst the Egyptian-Israeli alliance."
Damascus sources say that once Egypt is
neutralized, Israel will engage in war with Syria.
But are the rejectionist Arab states in a position
to start war? The answer is no, according to a
British intelligence official. He explained that
modernization of Syria's armed forces is expected
to take about five years. Some 30,000 Syrian
troops are pinned down as peace keepers in
Lebanon; and the army must defend the minority
of the Alawite regime.
There are reports of Iraqi divisions coming to
Syria, but British military analysts say that even
if the two armies merged, the two armed forces
would be no match for Israel. Total Iraqi-Syrian
military strength is 250,000 men, but Israel can
call up 300,000 men. Israel is rated 30 percent
stronger in sophisticated materiel, and the new
American military supplies will widen the gap,
according to the analysts.
Maxwell E. Greenberg, national chairman of
the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith,
today warned against the "enemies of peace" who
would try to undermine the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty signed this week.
"The enemies of peace in Baghdad, in
Beirut, in Moscow, in Teheran proclaim loud
and clear their preference for violence, bloodshed
and destruction," Greenberg said.
He noted that PLO leader Yasir Arafat urged
an oil embargo against the United States and
vowed to "chop off the hands" of the peace-
makers President Carter. Prime Minister
Begin, and President Sadat. "We can not contain
our disappointment that the international com-
munity has not expressed the outrage of the
civilized world against the warmongers,"
Greenberg declared.
Rabbi Israel Klavan, who has served as
executive vice president of the Rabbinical Council
of America for over a quarter of a century, will be
honored with the National Rabbinic Leadership
Award of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Con-
gregations of America at the 81st anniversary
national dinner of the UOJCA on May 13 in New
York City.
At the same time, Solomon Trau, of Man-
hattan's Fifth Avenue Synagogue, has been
selected to be guest of honor at the 81st an-
niversary dinner.

The Jewish Low-Cholesterol Cookbook. By Roberta Leviton.
Vermont: Paul 8. Eriksson, 370 pp., M4.95.
THIS COOKBOOK is an outgrowth of the authors
decision to switch to a low cholesterol diet following her father's
heart attack. Ms. Leviton and her husband, a member of the
faculty of the Harvard Medical School, discuss the medical
reasons for such a low-cholesterol diet.
Since the author has a kosher household, she hopes to share
her experience of enjoying good food, while keeping kosher and
reducing the risk of heart attack.
THERE ARE a number of charts which indicate the
cholesterol content of certain foods, and an excellent ''Food
Guide" with specific recommendations for foods to "eat" and
"don't eat" according to their fat and cholesterol content.
Ms. Leviton refers to the problem of hydrogenated mar-
garines and shortenings an issue which was recently pub-
licized in the media. She also anticipates the reader's questions
about adapting a low-cholesterol eating pattern for children, and
dining out.
Many of the recipes sound as if they come from a health
food store (a strange coincidence): pumpkin seeds, soybean sub-
stitutes for meatless main dishes, and tofu (or bean curd).
THE AUTHOR achieves her goal with both non-traditional
ingredients as well as a wide variety of herbs, spices and nuts.
Indeed, we are constantly being told in diet cookbooks how to
prepare meals by the creative use of various herbs and spices. In
addition, the author prepares non-traditional vegetables and
mouth-watering fruit desserts to please the most finicky ap
The bonus in the cookbook is that the recipes are kosher.
Traditional Jewish cooking need not be a heart attack risking
venture anymore. Goodbye shmaltz, hello polyunaaturated fats.

It's a Long Way
From Pinsk to Texas
79-year-old Jake Luskey stepped
up to me and offered his
assistance in a faint Yiddish
accent, I knew at once that I
wasn't face to face with an
everyday average Texas cowbov.
On a recent visit to Texas, I
had walked into Luskey's
Western Store in Fort Worth to
buy a hat for my son. I needed
help in selecting the correct
cowboy hat, so I had hoped that
the salesman would be an
authentic cowboy. Instead, I met
an authentic Jewish native of
Pinsk, Russia, who had
emigrated to Texas in 1913.
IF JAKE'S father, Abraham
Luskey, hadn't given America a
second chance, Jake probably
never would have left Pinsk. A
bootmaker for the Russian
cavalry, Abraham didn't have
any great love for his employer.
In additon, he was worried about
the treatment of the Jewish
population of Pinsk, which didn't
improve as the city kep changing
hands between Poland and
In 1908, Abraham set off alone
for New York City, expecting to
work as a bootmaker for a few
years and then send for his
family. When he discovered that
he had to work on Shabbat in
order to earn a living, he turned
around and went back to Pinsk in
Three years later, Abraham
heard a rumor in Pinsk that
people in Texas were bringing
Jewish immigrants through the
part of Galveston to settle in
their state. After investigating
the situation further, he booked
passage for himself and left for
Galveston. From there, he was
sent to Fort Worth. In 1913, he
sent for his wife, Molly, his three
daughters, and his 13-year-old
son, Jake.
"I CAME right after my Bar
Mitzvah," Jake told me. "In
Pinsk I had already gone- to a
special yeshiva, and I was
studying to be a rabbi or a
shochet. Then I had to go to the *
goldena land." In America,
Abraham had started a business
making and repairing shoes and
boots. When the family arrived,
Jake continued his schooling and
polished boots for his father. He
later worked in a store that sold
western apparel.
In 1919, Jake and his father
opened a general store in Fort
Worth. A. Luskey & Sons, as it
was first called, was located
about 17 blocks from downtown
Fort Worth, across from a wagon
yard where fanners and ranchers
parked their wagons when they
came to town. The store sold
Abraham's handmade boots,
piece goods, and big brimmed
straw and felt hats.
The next year Jake married a
Dallas native named Rose, and
the store began specializing in
western wear. When Abraham
was killed in an accident in 1933,
Jake became head of the family

unforgettable." He told reporters at Ben Gurion Airport
that in a 50-minute talk with President Anwar Sadat they
accomplished much more than in the months of nego-
tiations before the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty.
BEGIN REFUSED to divulge any details of their
meeting because "the government and the Knesset have
to be informed first." But, he said, "President Sadat
received us with the warmest hospitality possible We
are going not only towards peace but towards cooperation
for many, many years to come."

for Vf )ur Passover Observance
All other generations before us lived
in the shadow of the fear of war;
we live in the light of the hope for peace.
The service of unity
to stand with the people of Israel
more firmly than ever before...
for this moment when peace begins
is both triumph and trial:
they bear great and costly burdens.
The service of brotherhood
to embrace all our brethren
from the Soviet Union who courageously
free themselves from bondage,
and to guide them to new life
in the freedom of Israel and the United States.
The service of compassion
to keep faith with the troubled
and needful among us in our communities,
letting no special circumstance
hinder or diminish our capacity to
fulfill their lives.
The service of redemption
to bring new life, hope and dignity to all
who have felt themselves abandoned
in Israel's neighborhoods of distress,
cherishing and embracing the
200,000 Children of Renewal and leading them
into a future of gathering brightness.
