'West Bank Arabs
Will Get Their Way'
Gen. Danny Matt,
| military coordinator on the
West Bank, told a Knesset
[committee that American
[diplomats attached to the
[U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv
land the Consulate in
Jerusalem are assuring
fest Bank Arabs that
["eventually they will get
trhat they really want."
According to Matt, who ap-
eared before a closed session
the Knesset's Foreign Affairs
nd Security Committee, the
American diplomats meet
requently with West Bank
eaders urging them to join in the
Autonomy talks between Israel
(id Egypt.
HE ALSO reportedly said that
Junker charitable organizations
ased in the U.S. and working on
le West Bank consistently
implied funds for legal action
ought by local Arabs against
ipropriation of their lands.
He also claimed that sizeable
is were flowing into the West
ank from Arab rejectionist
ates, channeled to extremist
ements and intended to make
i independent of Israeli
Matt's remarks were leaked to
the media, causing committee
chairman Moshe Arens to scold
Knesset correspondents for
publishing material that could
prejudice national security.
The newsmen countered that if
the matters reported by Matt had
not been squelched by military
censors, there would be no
security threat.
Washington, President Carter
stressed that the United States
would make its own proposals to
Egypt and Israel on autonomy
for the West Bank and Gaza
Strip only if necessary to "break
a deadlock" or suggest a com-
promise. Asked at a press
conference whether it was not
"incumbent" on the U.S. to make
its own proposals, Carter said it
would be "counterproductive"
for the US. to "preempt" the
negotiations on autonomy now
going on between Israel and
"We have never been reticent
about putting forth ideas,"
Carter said, adding that this is
what both Israel and Egypt
want. But he said the same policy
would be followed as at the Camp
David talks in which the
American proposals would be
made only after Israel and Egypt
have discussed their own views
and cannot reach an agreement.

Jerusalem Indivisible,
Begin Warns Sadat
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin delivered one of his
toughest speeches at the
opening of the Herat
Party's 14th national con-
vention here Sunday night,
fervently defending Jewish
settlement on the occupied
West Bank as a "right"
and "duty," declaring total
war against the Palestine
Liberation Organization
and warning President
A t Herut Conference
Anwar Sadat of Egypt to
refrain from criticizing
Jewish settlements or
talking about the division
of Jerusalem.
Begin's hard line went well
with his audience of 3,000 Herut
loyalists who cheered and
stamped in the Jerusalem con-
vention hall. "Settlement is a
right and a duty. We have and
will continue to fulfill that right
and that duty," the Prime
Minister declared. He fiercely
ruled out any notion of Pales-
tinian state or a divided
sovereignty over Jerusalem.
REFERRING to warnings
that Israel's aggressive settle-
ment policies undermine Sadat at
a time when he is being attacked
by the Arab rejectionist states,
Begin asserted, "We do not need
anyone to preach to us about the
delicate position of President
Sadat vis-a-vis the Arab world.
"We certainly appreciate his

Carter Urged to PuU Out of WHO
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations has called on
President Carter to withdraw the
United States from the World
Health Organization if the WHO,
which opened its meetings May 7
in Geneva, adopts an Iraqi pro-
posal to suspend Israel.
Withdrawal by the United
States from a world organ
"whose non-political character
has been fundamentally abridged
is indispensible to maintain the
integrity of the United Nations;
specialized agencies and to safe-
guard the peace process itself,"
said Theodore R. Mann, chair-
man of the Presidents Confer-
ence, and Jack J. Spitzer, chair-
man of its UN task force. "We
are convinced that you will
pursue this objective," the letter
to the White House stated.
proposal jeopardized "the very
integrity of a United Nations
specialized agency upon whose
non-political character rests the
health conditions of millions
throughout the world," the
Presidents Conference stated:
"Beyond the question of the
WHO itself is the integrity of the
entire UN system. If the initia-
tive of transforming a segment of
the world organization into a
Middle East battleground suc-
ceeds then no part of the system
will be immune."
The Presidents Conference
letter to Carter accused "the
intransigent state of the (Arab)
rejectionist front" of seeking to
suspend Israel's membership in
the WHO as part of "a massive
effort to subvert the peace
process The rejectionist
states also hope to set in motion
powerful currents of resistance to
the Egyptian-Israel peace agree-
ment and thereby to challenge
our great personal achievement."
THE LETTER added that "we
are certain that the United States
will vigorously and determinately
resist the politicizing drive within
the WHO. In this connection, we
welcome the warning extended
by Ambassador William van den
Heuvel at the Assembly of the
WHO on May 9 on the dangerous
implications of the anti-Israel
suspension initiative."

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Friday, Juneg, 197,
More Than Rhetoric
We would like to believe that it was more than
political rhetoric when Prime Minister Menachem
Begin told a Herut convention Sunday night that
Jerusalem is indivisible. This was a solid warning to
President Sadat, who has increasingly begun to test
the waters of dissent involving Arab claims on Old
We would also like to believe that nothing will
shake his confidence in the principle he espouses
that, cooperation or no cooperation between Israel
and Egypt, no one and that means both the Carter
administration and President Sadat can force
Israel to continue on the merry-go-round of making
Cooperation, yes; suicide, no. This was the gist
of his message, and in the heat of enthusiasm over
the new peace agreement, it is well that he has finally
spoken up out loud. Whether or not he and the
government he heads really mean it remains to be
'Normalization' and Radar
This is a central issue for two reasons best
illustrated by two separate incidents earlier in the
week. One was the statement made by Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan prior to bis departure for
talks in Cairo.
Addressing himself to the one-sided Egyptian
attitude toward "normalization" of relations and
Egypt's apparent reticence to open up the borders
between the two countries, Dayan said that
President Sadat rant have it both ways. By this, he
meant that El Arish residents are permitted as a
matter of course across the new border into Israel;
but Israelis are not permitted into El Arish or any
place else in Egypt, as a similar matter of course.
The second illustration is the sudden erection of
gigantic radar facilities by Egyptian authorities in El
Arish. What are they monitoring?
Well-Timed Clarification
It is a well-timed clarification. Only last week-
end, President Sadat wondered out loud what the
Arab rejectionist states found wrong with the new
peace agreement. Hadn't it, he asked, finally put an
end to Israeli expansionism?
One shouldn't be too astonished by this. All one
has to do is to read Sadat's Autobiography published
last year, as we have repeatedly urged. What he
really thinks of Israel is as clear as Prime Minister
Begin"s remarks before the Herut convention.
What seems to emerge is that the new peace is a
peace but with profound reservations. In his remarks
before his Herut Party, the Prime Minister at least
clarified two issues on which there can be no
reservations so far as Israel is concerned: Jerusalem
and "normalization."

Constitutional Convention and Insomnia*
If you're from Missouri, you
are fairly certain to know the
reason given for banging the
head of a recalcitrant mule with a
sizeable piece of lumber. "That's
just to get his attention," the
oldtimers say. And so it may be
with the current runaway drive
for a Constitutional Convention:
some promoting that radical
action figure that the yells for a
national convocation to change
this nation's fundamental
compact may at least force Con-
gress to curb federal spending.
We could sleep easier these
nights if the call for a Con-
stitutional Convention failed. For
if it succeeds, it will not be the
likes of James Madison, Ben-
jamin Franklin, Alexander
Hamilton, and George Washing-
ton that will serve as the archi-
tects of change. Rather, we had
best be expecting Howard Jarvis
as the lead man.
AT THIS writing, 26 states
have demanded that a Con-
stitutional Convention be
assembled for the specific pur-
pose of curbing federal spending.
Ten states have been importuned
successfully by Right-To-Life
advocates to make a similar call
for inserting into the Con-
stitution a curb on abortions.
These drives erupt from anger
and frustration. Turmoil of this
nature has stirred in the breasts
of Americans before. Yet the
issue of slavery was resolved
without a Constitutional Con-
vention. Nor did such a con-
vention materialize during such
hard times as the Panics of 1896
and 1907 and the depression of
the 1930s. Actually, once in the
history of America, anti-polyga-
mists got a call for a Con-
stitutional Convention off the
ground, but that troublesome
issue was eventually settled by
other means.
In case Gov. Edmund G.
Brown Jr. of California,
Presidential aspirant John Con-
nally. the National Taxpayers
Union, and other voices now
demanding the Convention have
their way, it is inconceivable that
such a conventions activities
would be confined to a single
THE TAX reformers are way
out in front at this moment. But
the anti-abortionists are panting
behind them. And not far down
the road are those who want
prayers in public schools, an end
to forced" busing, federal aid for
religious schools, no restrictions
on capital punishment, and a new
approach to pornography.
Our cherished Bill of Rights,
giving us ironclad protection for
speech, assembly, the written
word, church-state separation,
and other freedoms essential to
the preservation of democracy,
would undoubtedly be picked at
and perhaps undermined
It's too bad that the mechanics
for setting up a Constitutional
Convention are so complicated
that few Americans have
patience for informing them-
selves. But the danger of finding
ourselves robbed of some of our
liberties is real. To preserve so
much so dear to us, we need to
speak up after informing our-
"ON THE application of the
Legislatures of two-thirds of the
several States, (Congress) shall
call a convention," Article V
declares. And that call "shall be
valid to all intents and purpose*
as part of this Constitution, when
ratified by the Legislatures of
three-fourths of the several
states, or by conventions in
three-fourths thereof ."
The discomforting news about
this issue is that powerful lobbies
are convincing more political
opportunists each day that a
Constitutional Convention must
be called
Fortunately, there is some
good news: 1) A dozen or more of
the states that have opted for the
call have been challenged on the
validity of such requests. 2)
Questions abound: will the
convention be limited to a single \
purpose; how are the ground
rules established and by whom;
who will preside and by what
authority; in cases of unresolved
issues, would Congress or the
courts be empowered to step in?
3) Even Sen. Paul Laxalt of
Nevada, ultra-conservative on
many issues, does not favor the
Convention route.
WE HAVE a prudent course
for making changes, that is, by
legislation and Constitutional
amendment. Twenty-six such
changes are now embodied in the
supreme laws of our nation.
Eleven of those amendments
have taken effect in this century.
Surely in 1979, when it comes
time to celebrate the bicentennial
of the adoption of our Con-
stitution, we should be able to
look back on these years of cam-
paigning for an open-ended Con-
stitutional Convention with the
satisfaction of knowing that
progress was made in a more
prudent manner.

NEW YORK Spain's his-
torical monuments of castles,
cathedrals and walled cities have
long been major attractions.
There is also the ancient
Sephardic culture among the
popular attractions. Vestiges of
more than a thousand years of
enlightened Jewish tradition
stand in Spain today among the
new Jewish communities.
Toledo is an example, the
history-filled melting pot of
Spain, an hour's drive from
Madrid- With two synagogues.
El Transito, the finest example of
medieval synagogue art in
Europe, and Santa Maria la
Blanca imbedded in the "juderia"
or Jewish quarter, ancient Jewish
culture comes alive.
A STAY at the National
Parador Conde de Orgaz, over-
looking the city, across from the
"Juderia," gives one time to
really appreciate the labyrinth of
streets that speak so eloquently
of the community that once
thrived here. The Sephardic
Museum, adjoining the El
Transito Synagogue, is one of the
finest of its type, and is only
paces from El Greco's Home and
Museum, Spain's second most
popular art museum.
Cordoba, the ancient Moorish
capital of Spain, was a Sephardic
center for five hundred years. The
"Juderia" of whitewashed houses
and refreshing interior court-
yards presses to the very doors of
the Mezquita (Great Mosque), so
popular with tourists.
It is here, in the Jewish quar-
ter, that the Patio Fair of May is ,
held each year. The small but
delicate synagogue, on the Calle
Maimonides, named for the great
Jewish philosopher physician
born in Cordoba, is a reminder of aH
the golden age in Sephardic
Only 83 miles on National
Highway IV separate the
"juderia" of Cordoba from the
old Jewish quarter of Seville, now
called the Barrio de Santa Cruz.
This exquisite, enchanting neigh-
borhood, adjoining the immense
cathedral and Giralda Tower,
have come to typify Andalucia.
The serpentine streets weave be-
tween white walls, with lacy,
wrought-iron grilles, connecting
plazas and serene courtyards,

Lillyan Osiason Heads
Schaarai Zedek
History was made in Tampa
this week when Lillyan Osiason
was elected president of Con-
gregation Schaarai Zedek (The
Temple). This marked the first
time in our city that a woman has
been named the top officer of a
Lillyan has previously served
The Temple as Sisterhood
president and Religious School
chairman, secretary and vice
president It seems the logical
culmination of all the work I've
done the past 30 years." Lillyan
answered when asked to com-
ment on her becoming president.
Before this time, no woman
wanted to be president enough to
work for it. The times didn't
nurture the ambition. Women
were reluctant to offer them-
selves for leadership positions.
"Women were used to doing
the work, but they did not feel
they were as qualified as the men.
They always looked on them-
selves as having less experience.
I still do not fed that it is im-
portant that there are women
presidents But it would be very
important if there weren't." Con-
tinuing to explain, she said that
this would mean the overlooking
of a total segment of the
population as to talent and
herself a deeply religious person
and refers back fondly to her
growing up in Congregation
Mishkan Tefilah, then in Rox-
bury, Mass.. but now in Newton.
She attended Hebrew School
there, was confirmed and served
as the Temple librarian. Her
parents, the late Minnette and
George Greene, were also very
active in congregation affairs.
Minnette Greene was Sisterhood
president and served several
terms as president of the New
England Region of the Women's
League of the United
Synagogues of America. (Ed
Note: Minnette later retired to
Tampa, and many of you will
remember her living in the
Jewish Towers.)
George Greene was a lawyer
and a member of the Massa-
chusetts House of Represen-
tatives for 18 years. He overcame
being blind due to an accident
when he was 13. Lillyan feels
very strongly that her parents'
influence was and still is very
"Temple membership is Jewish
identification. I hope to be able to
encourage others to become a
part of it. Prayer and group
worship are important."
The Boston background
Lillyan is so proud of cannot be
denied. The accent comes
through in her everyday speech.
She graduated from Girls' Latin
School, and attended Boston
University, graduating from the
University of Massachusetts
with a degree in Romance
languages. During her college
days, she met Elliot Osiason, a
young man whose family had
recently moved to Tampa.

Lillyan and husband Elliot, and
this summer will find them
traveling as they do every
summer. This time they will be in
Hungary, Yugoslavia, Czecho-
slovakia, Italy, Switzerland,
Austria and Germany.
Lillyan s Temple activities
really began when her children
were attending religious school.
Before she knew it, she waa
deeply involved in Sisterhood
activities and ultimately served
a* a director of the Southeast
Federation of Temple Sister
hoods for four years and then as a
member of the Board of the
National Federation of Temple
Sisterhoods for four years, a term
she is just completing now.
Her husband Elliot is very
proud of his wife's accomplish-'
ments. but he chooses to stay
completely in the background.
They are the parents of two
children Daughter Margie is
married to Hugh Rawn of
Atlanta, and they will present
Lillyan and Elliot with their first
grandchild late this fall. Margie
is a 'counselor at the Atlanta
Woman's Medical Clinic. Son Lee
is a senior at the University of
Florida College of Law. He will be

"I HOPE to promote in-
dividual involvement in the
varied aspects of Temple life.
And I hope that we'll be able to
develop programs that people
will want to participate in. More
involvement means more iden-
tification.'' and Lillyan has
shown by her deeds that she
means it.
"I love the Temple very much-
It has given me far more than I
have given it. I see Reform as a
more viable answer for future
generations. It is vital to be in
continuous transition, and that is
what Reform is all about."
Of all her honors. Lillyan refers
back to her receiving the Presi-
dent's Cup in 1973 as the award
which means the most. This
award is given annually to the

as having made the most out-
standing contribution to the

three students honored recently at his graduation from St.
Mary's School. He received a scholastic award for his out-
standing academic record over the eight years he attended this

Peace May Mean Ties With Africa
The Ivory Coast Ambassador
to the United Nations,
Ambassador Amoakon-
Edjampan Thiemele, voiced hope
last week that the Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty would lead to
full restoration of diplomatic
relations between Black African
countries and the Jewish staate.
"Even without diplomatic
relations," he disclosed, "Israel
has maintained good commercial
relations with many African
countries, including the Ivory
Addressing a meeting of the
World Jewish Congress in New
York, Ambassador Thiemele
doubted that the radical Arab
members of the Organization of
African Unity (OAU), notably
Algeria .and Libya, would succeed
in carrying out the Beghdad
resolution to expel Egypt from
the OAU.
Egypt was above all an African
country, he said, and African
countries would therefore show
solidarity with it in its peace
efforts. He observed that Libya's
incursions into Uganda and
Chad, which he said had violated
the principle of territorial in-
tegrity, would affect the views of
many African countries south of
the Sahara in relation to the
Middle East conflict.
The Ivory Coast Ambassador's
views were seen as significant
because most of Black Africa has
not yet reacted officially to the
peace treaty, although many of
them praised the Camp David
accord last session of the UN
General Assemby. They are
expected to discuss the situation
in the Middle East at the up-

Lay Off Carter
COJO's Prexy Mann Urges U.S. Jewry
By his own reckoning, Theo-
dore Mann has logged some
200,000 miles since assuming the
chairmanship of the Conference
of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations a year go.
As he begins his second year in
office, the Philadelphia lawyer
and veteran Jewish leader can
look forward to many more miles
of travel between his Rittenhouse
Square office and the power
centers of New York, Washing-
ton, Jerusalem and now Cairo.
Exponent here to share his
thoughts with News Editor
David Gross, on some of the
current issues facing the Jewish
community. He had recently
returned from attending the
formal exchange of treaty
documents between Egypt and
Israel at Umm Kashiba in the
Sinai and from a series of
meetings with senior U.S. of-
"It is most important," Mann
began, "that when American
Jews count up the mistakes of
the Carter Administration and
there are mistakes and they
should be counted they do not
lose sight of the Administration's
positive accomplishments, and
they are impressive. This
Administration has been fan-
tastic on almost every item on
the Jewish agenda, except for the
West Bank and East Jerusalem.
"There is a tremendous
concern in the Jewish community
over the Palestine Liberation
Organization and its relation to
the U.S.," Mann continued.
"Also over the Administration's
view that East Jerusalem, or part
of it, could or should be under
Arab sovereignty. These are
immense issues that indicate
different views on Israel's
security requirements than the
views of most Jews."
NOTING THAT "it isn't easy
to say this to American Jews
because, it seems, they just don't
want to hear it," Mann never-
theless stated emphatically, "If I
had to write a script on what an
Administration could do, this one
would be hard to beat."
Mann praised the Carter
Administration's efforts on
behalf of Soviet Jewry, stressing
that the U.S. was acting on
human rights principles, not
merely to secure Jewish votes.
He also commended the
Administration's work for the
beleagured Jewish communities
in Argentina and Iran. "I can't
think of anything they could do
and haven't done," he said.
Turning specifically to the
situation in Iran, Mann stated
that no one can predict what is
going to heppen there. He said
the best intelligence both
American and Israeli indicates
that the Islamic courts are on
their own and that the Ayatollah
Khomeini only finds out what
they have done after it happens.
and the Jewish community here
are faced with a very difficult
decision," Mann said. "Iranian
Jewry is being held hostage and
we must weigh the risks between
remaining silent and raising our
voices in protest. We did protest
the recent execution of Jewish
leader Habib Elkanian. The Aya-
tollah then met with a delegation
of Iranian Jews and limited the
power of the Islamic courts. This
indicates that the risk of keeping
quiet is greater than the risk of
speaking out."
At the same time, Mann
emphasized that nobody either
in Jerusalem or in Washington
is confident that the Ayatollah
meant what he said or that he has
the power to impose his will on
the courts.
Mann also summed up the
current situation regarding the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment
which links U.S.-Soviet trade to
the Soviet Union's emigration
policy. "No one has suggested
that Jackson-Vanik be repealed,"
he stressed.
Most Jewish groups, he noted,
are seeking to continue using
Jackson-Vanik to aid Soviet
Jews. They see it as a lever to pry
more Jews especially refusruks
and "Prisoners of Conscience"
out of the Soviet Union, as well
as to encourage the Soviets to
regularize their emigration
Some of this has already
happened, Mann said, par-
ticularly in the last eight months.
He pointed to the dramatic in-
crease in immigration figures and
the recent release of prisoners
and refusniks.
THERE IS also a technical
aspect to the Jackson-Vanik
issue, Mann added. The amend-
ment requires "assurances" by
the USSR before it can be
waived. Does that mean, he
asked rhetorically, that these
"assurances must be written?
Can they be oral? Can the
Russians give them by their
actions? Or must they
specifically state what they
intend to do in the future?"
Here Mann dared assume the
prophet's mantle. "Within 60
days," he confidently predicted,
"the Jackson-Vanik Amendment
will be waived for 12 months, and
the Soviet Union will be granted
Most Favored Nation status."
Will that decision to waive
Convert Jews Tend
To be Balanced
By 'Newcomers'
Michigan Reform rabbi contends
that if accurate data existed, they
would show that conversions out
of Judaism and conversions to
Judaism would, on a balance
sheet, "show a steady stream of
converts to Judaism and only a
slow trickle of converts out."
Rabbi Ralph D. Mecklenberger
made his assessment in reacting
to the flow of articles and com-
mittees dealing with "the alleged
threat to Jewry from the cults."
WRITING IN a recent issue of
Sh'ma, he said the question of
how many young Jews are being
converted to non-Jewish faiths
"depends on whom you believe."

"Some articles and speakers
say the numbers are astronomical
and others say they are small,"
Rabbi Mecklenberger declared.
He added that from his per-
spective in the university town of
Ann Arbor, "the problem ap-
pears small. A few Jewish
students, but only a few, are
attracted by fundamentalist
sects or cults" and "my
colleagues at Hillel concur that
there is little cause for alarm."
He asked what all the furor
was about if there are more
converts to Judaism than Jewish
converts to Christianity. He
commented "we could charitably
ascribe it to a feeling that even a
few Jews lost is a few too many."
While agreeing that the Jewish
community "obviously" should
try to reach more Jews, he added
"we should be realists enough to
know that we are going to lose
some Jews just as we gain some
Jews. In a society as open as ours
there are bound to be individuals
who shift from one religious camp
to another."
He contended that the Jewish
community should "simply write
off those few who actually
convert out of Judaism," adding
that "paroxysms of guilt on our
part accomplish nothing."
HE SAID few Jews knew more
than one or two converts to the
cults "but all of us know many
Jews, unaffiliated and unin-
terested, who rarely give a
thought (or even a dollar) to
Jewish causes." He declared that
while this is "hardly a new
problem," it is "the more serious
problem we neglect as we agonize
over the minor annoyance of the
Jackson-Vanik be a wise one?
Even Mann refused to predict.
"Ask me next year at this time,"
he replied.
Mann also discussed the
Strategic Arms Limitation
Treaty which President Carter
intends to place before the Senate
for ratification. "The President is
really pitching SALT," Mann
said. "He is urging people to
write their Senators on the
WHILE SALT is not a
specifically Jewish issue, Mann
said that he expected some
Jewish organizations would take
formal positions on the treaty
and others would not. Speaking*
for himself, he stated, "I think
that SALT is important for the ...
U.S. and Senators should be '
urged to support it."
SALT II, he added, will
"produce a further slowdown in
the arms race."
Ethiopian Jews Urge U.S.
To Take Up Cause of Falashas
An Ethiopian Jew, now a
citizen of Israel, urged Jews
in the United States and
Canada to take up the
cause of his fellow Falashas
in Ethiopia who he said are
facing extinction. Zecharias
Yona, secretary general of
the Association of Ethio-
pian Jews in Israel, charged
that the problem of the
Falashas has been ignored
by the Israeli government
and Jewish organizations.
Yona, a reserve sergeant in the
Israeli Army, and Simcha Jaco-
bovici, chairman of the North
American Jewish Students Net-
work, spoke to Jewish media at a
press conference which concluded
Yona's speaking tour of the U.S.
and Canada under NAJSN's
massive letter writing campaign
to President Carter and to Zionist
and Jewish organizations urging
them to devise a "creative ap-
proach" to the problem of the
Yona, noting the efforts to
rouse world opinion over the
arrest of Jewish activist Anatoly
Sharansky in the Soviet Union,
asked whether the slaughter of
thousands of Ethiopian Jews
in the last few years could not
also be made into an inter-
national cause.
The Falashas, who numbered
250,000 in the 19th Century and
28,000 in 1976, are believed now
to number only 20,000. They live
in northwest Ethiopia which has
been the center of a civil war
since the overthrow of Emperor
Haile Selassie in 1972. *
THOUSANDS have been
killed, many sold into slavery and
an estimated 7,000 are refugees,
according to reports.
Prior to 1972, when Yona
immigrated to Israel, the aliya of ^
Falashas was hindered by doubts **
over their Jewishness. In 1972,
Israel's two Chief Rabbis
recognized Falashas as Jews.
Yona said that some 300
Falashas now in Israel are fully
accepted and integrated into
Israel life.
But Yona said that although
124 Falashas made aliya in 1977,
the situation in Ethiopia is
desperate and nothing is being
done to get the Falashas out of
Ethiopia. He took pains to stress
that he was not blaming the
Ethiopian government for the
plight of the Falashas.
YONA WAS among a group of
Falasha immigrants who staged
demonstrations in Israel last
December to urge help for their >
fellow Falashas in Ethiopia. Both
the Israel government and the
Jewish Agency who were
criticized by the Falashas, said }
they were doing things to aid the
Falashas but could not reveal

hostile reception, Ehrlich
stumbled through his speech. He
avoided any mention of economic
matters but warned his Likud
partners that "We need-unity
because the (Labor! alignment is
waiting in ambush for us."
Resounding cheers greeted the
speech of Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Sholomo Goren who declared
that the West Bank and Gaza
Strip belonged to Israel because
of their biblical associations. The
platform was also shared by
President Yitzhak Navon and
Leon Dulzin, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization and
Jewish Agency Executives who
is a leader of the Liberal Party.
Despite the militancy of Begin
and other Herat stalwarts, the
convention opening lacked much
of the luster that has charac-
terized previous Herat
gatherings. For one thing, die-
hard MK Geula Cohen and other
dissenters who oppose the peace
treaty with Egypt absented
themselves. In addition, there
was an evidently self-imposed
decorum in keeping with Herat's
new position as the senior partner
of the governing coalition.
Kay Doughty
Hillel Principal
A 12-hour day, student emer-
gencies, faculty conferences, and
organizing a science fair would be
enough to deter the most
energetic individuals, but the
bigger the challenge the more
enthusiastic the attractive
principal of Hillel, Kay Doughty,
"Five years ago I set out to
build the reputation of the Hillel
School of Tampa as a center
where students in grades 1-8 can
obtain a high quality general and
Judaic studies education," said
Mr8. Doughty.
To date, the English program
is two years ahead of the public
schools in Hillsborough County.
Some of the students I spoke to
were tackling advanced algebra
and geometry problems. Out of
500 entries in the recent State-
wide Science Talent Search and
Competition, the students from
the Hillel School of Tampa won
three prizes.
achievements of the three
winners, Mrs. Doughty at-
tributed their success to the
dedication of Mrs. Janet Stewart,
science teacher.
"We don't have elaborate
science equipment and facilities,
but we try to make the most of
what we have," said Mrs.
"I think Kay Doughty's
greatest strength is that she
allows the teachers to try out new
ideas and methods. She's there
when you need her when the
going is rough, and she's also
there to applaud your successes,"
said Mrs. Stewart.
"One of the challenges I faced
this year was to mold a cohesive
staff that understands the
philosophy of accommodating
the curriculum and teaching
methods to each student's
needs," said Mrs. Doughty.
DETERMINED to set an
example and serve as a model for
her teachers, Mrs. Doughty last
year instituted a system for
quickly responding to students'
and teachers' concerns. On the
door to her office are two charts.
One is titled "I Need to Talk
Today," and the other reads
"Need to Talk." Students and
teachers are encouraged to sign
up depending upon the urgency
of a particular problem.
"Even if I can't help the
student solve his problem im-
mediately, I can find time to say,
'What's the problem?' "
As a gentile, Mrs. Doughty
also faced the challenge of
demonstrating she could provide
the atmosphere for a superior
Judaic studies program.
"If we expect our students to
participate in services and com-
munity-wide events as represen-
tatives of the Hillel School of
Tampa, then I feel as principal I
should participate too," she said.
UNDER THE tutelage of
Rabbi Brod, Kay Doughty
learned to read Hebrew and reads
with ease from the Torah during
the bi-weekly morning services.
In her offices across from her
desk she keeps a tape recorder
with a large supply of Israeli
dance music.
"I'm a little stiff with charley-
horses in both legs from those
Israeli dances," Mrs. Doughty
confided. "I've been demon-
strating some new dances I
learned to the fifth graders."
Instruction in Israeli culture
includes learning some dances
which students then peform for
special school celebrations and
community-wide events such as
Israeli Independence Day.
Because no faculty members were
skilled in this area, Mrs.
Doughty, who had never danced

JAY WITTNER, 18, entering
the freshman class at Emory
University this coming Septem-
ber, is a Hillel graduate who had
Kay Doughty as a math teacher
five years ago when she first
became acting principal. "She's
an amazing person and an ex-
tremely hard worker who cares
about everyone. She helped me
by treating me as an adult in-
stead of just a kid."
Wittner says she created a
family feeling in the school by
making the students feel they
belonged to a tightly-knit group
of caring people.
"Kay Doughty is not only an
outstanding administrator but
first and foremost an educator
who has superior qualifications
for her job and a well-developed
personal philosophy regarding
the school's atmosphere," said
Mrs. Judith Tawil, president of
the Hillel School of Tampa.
Mrs. Doughty has a BS degree
in chemistry from Drexler
University and a Master's in
gifted education from USF. She

chemistry and has taken courses

students who have graduated
and won acceptance at all the
private and public schools in the
Tampa Bay area.
"The private schools are ac-
tively recruiting Hillel students
who have demonstrated a high
level of academic performance
and personal -achievement in
leadership skills through the
training they have received
here," said Kay Doughty.
ASKED ABOUT her personal
philosophy, Mrs. Doughty said,
"If a child feels good about
himself, he'll learn. Here at Hillel,
I try to help the child solve his
problems so he can remove any
obstacles in the way of learning
and instill in him (or her) a feeling
of confidence based on success."
