basic anti-Semitic propaganda

for crucifying Christ;
Zionism is racism.
THE 57-year-old LaRouche, a

Time for Struggle
Women's Rights
In Rabbinic Courts
I have always avoided feminist
movements. Any meetings I had
been to in the past dealt with
issues which were anathema to
me As a religiously committed
woman concerned with the
sanctity of the family, I could not
condone homosexuality, abortion
on demand, and other issues
which were supposed to liberate
women, but which I felt in some
ways reduced our dignity to the
lowest common denominator.
As a result, when I was
recently invited to attend the
first Leadership Conference of
the League for Women's Rights
in the Courts, I accepted with
some reservations.
Perhaps it's a measure of my
inhibition, but I'm uncomfortable
with the kind of women I en-
visaged would be attending
militant, aggressive, eman-
cipated young women, who would
find my kind of ethics completely
passe, if not outright ridiculous.
HOW WRONG I was. The
meeting comprised an elite cadre
of mature, educated, articulate,
and mostly religious women, a
sprinkling of men, and a few
eminent legal personalities,
religious authorities, and
These people were clearly not
dedicated to tearing down any
existing societal structures. On
the contrary, they work to secure
a dignified family life in the true
spirit of traditional Judaism.
Their area is concerned with
human misery: the aguna a

cannot remarry, and should they
decide in their extreme misery
simply to live with a man, any
children of the union would be
mamzerim (illegitimate). But
most women in this situation are
religious and would not resort to
this "solution," so that their lives
become lonely and unfulfilled.
THE LEAGUE for Women's
Rights in the Courts maintains
that Halacha is not at fault.
There are always people anxious
to deride the Halacha for having
made women little better than
chatties, but they claim that this
is a misinterpretation. They place
the blame for the unhappiness of
ugunot squarely at the door of
the Rabbinical Courts and

Mideast Report
Syria Faces Serious Internal, External Problems
President Assad
Rssn*h L""e
Syria, until quite recently, was
one of the most stable nations in
the Arab Middle East. Despite
the fragmented nature of its
multi-ethnic society, Syria was a
beacon of stability in a region of
unrest. This is no longer the case
- President Hafez Assad's nine-
year regime notwithstanding
and Syria today teeters on the
edge of anarchy.
Assad and his nominally
secular Ba'ath Party are in no
immediate danger of being
toppled, given the president s
firm control of the army and the
security apparatus. But he is
under increasing pressure to
restore the tranquility that had
become synonymous with his
rule, and to solve the problems
that have led to widespread dis-
content within the country.
FAILURE to do so could
result in a coup d'etat, exposing
Syria to the type of violence
which was relatively common in
the period between 1949 to 1970.
Syria faces challenges on the
internal and external fronts,
caused by the Islamic revival
sweeping across the Middle East,
the disproportionate economic
and political clout wielded by the
Alawaites a Shiite sect con-
stituting about 10 percent of the
population of eight million and
the deepening involvement by
Damascus in the domestic affairs
of Lebanon.
The discontent that has rocked
Syria in recent months has been
expressed in different forms. Last
June 16, in a massacre at the
Aleppo Artillery Academy, more
than 60 cadets, most of them
Alawites, were machine gunned
to death. The assassins, said to
be members of the Moslem
Brotherhood, a fanatical Islamic
group once outlawed by Gamal
Abdul Nasser, were executed
shortly afterwards.
ELEVEN DAYS later, Syrian
and Israeli jets clashed over
Lebanon in their first air battle in
five years. Four Syrian MIGs
were shot out of the sky. More
recently, another dogfight
erupted in Lebanese air span
and the Syrians lost five of their
planes. Commentators
speculated that politically-be-
sieged Hafez Assad, an Alawite.

Those of you who always ask what can we do?
Here is something you can do.
We Must Not Forget
It would be difficult to find anything more
frankly opportunistic than the Canadian govern-
ment's decision not to decide in effect, to put off
"indefinitely" the promise made by its Prime
Minister when he ran for office and courted Jewish
votes that, if elected, he would move Canada's
Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Now that the indecision has been made, what
can one say other than that political realities are not
only cruel; they are also crude.
And as we have said in these columns again and
again, this must once and for all be a lesson to the
Jewish community that the brave words of the
would-be high and mighty all too frequently become
the cowardly sentiments of our most entrenched
enemies once our allegiance has been won.
In this vein, does anybody remember Dorothy
Thompson, sometime wife of the renowned American
novelist, Sinclair Lewis? Thompson it was who fed at
the trough of Zionism for years until she
discovered fountains far more quenching to her
lucrative taste.
So it was in Canada. We must not forget.
Israel to Aid Cambodians
The Government of Israel has
decided to extend medical and
humanitarian aid to the Cam-
bodian refugees, whose plight is
arousing increasing sympathy
throughout the world. The
Government of Israel is one of
the first to embark upon a
humanitarian aid program in
response to the situation of the
Cambodian refugees.
According to the Israel
government's decision, an in-
terministerial committee com-
posed of representatives of the
Prime Minister's Office, the
Ministries of Foreign Affairs,
Health. Labor, Social Welfare,
and El Al Airlines, has been
established in order to coordinate
activities connected with the
speedy dispatch of aid to the

plies and equipment will be sent

volunteer medical team will be

channeling the aid to its
In addition to the Israel
government's offer of aid, or-
dinary citizens like Abe Nathan,
an Israeli known for his in-
volvement in humanitarian
causes are showing their concern
for the refugees. Nathan is
already in Thailand, where he has
launched activities aimed at
alleviating the plight of the
refugees by distributing food
supplies. Nathan's actions are
enjoying wide support among the
Israeli public and have earned the
praises of the Thai government.
It will be recalled that the first
decision of the present Israeli
government, upon taking office
in June 1977, was to offer asylum
to 66 Vietnamese refugees. Later
in January 1979. a further 101
"Boat-People" of Southeast Asia
were rehabilitated and absorbed
in Israel. Furthermore, in June
1979, Prime Minister Menachem
Begin appealed to heads of state
to follow the decision of the
Israeli government by accepting
a number of Indochinese
refugees, relative to the size of
their territory and population.
Recently. 197 refugees from
Indochina reached the shores of
Israel and were welcomed as new
inhabitants of the town of Sdarot.

Vanessa is Still a Thorn
Playwright Arthur Miller, who
is Jewish, is outraged at what he
regards as demands for the
blacklisting of British Actress
Vanessa Redgrave. His defense
of Miss Redgrave on this score
comes just about a year after the
British actress was demanding
the blacklisting of British actors
holding contracts with Israel.
This bizarre drama is being
enacted not on the playing fields
of Eton but in the court of world
The horror story is rooted
la) in Vanessa Redgrave's
fulminations against Zionism and
her campaign for a Palestine

IN HIS several debates with
Miss Redgrave, Theodore Bikel,
president of Actors Equity,
declared to the British actress:
"You have annointed the
PLO. .and thus you make
yourself an ideological partner of
the murderers of the school
children at Ma'alot, of pregnant
women at Kiryat Shmona, of
Olympic athletes at Munich, of
Wasfi Tal, an Arab minister, in
Cairo, and of hundreds of Jews
and Arabs alike in Jerusalem, Tel
Aviv, and Gaza."
Should Vanessa Redgrave then
- be cast as Fanian Fenelon in
CBS's projected television play?
i Fania Fenelon, 62, who at the
commmand of Nazis provided
music for her fellow prisoners at
Auschwitz, thinks not. She has
been gentle and calm about her
opposition to that choice. She is
not thinking of boycott or
blacklisting. This would not be in
character for her.
Would there be hope then that
if and when Miss Redgrave
assays the Fenelon role, some
spark of contrition, some inflow
of compassion, might seep into
her psyche and perchance liberate
her from enslavement by PLO
ideology? Might she be led, for a
change, to seek reparations from
Arabs for the 500.000 Jews
driven from Arab lands during
the Arab assaults upon Israel?
THIS SEEMS unlikely.
But could it be that some
ardent messenger of peace and
understanding in this trouble
world would recall for her wh
happened in Hitler's time whel
the shamefully anti-Semiti
Passion Play was presented
Ogerammergau, Bavaria?
those days, nine of the 10 chisj
actors in the Passion Play,
eluding the Bavarian cast
Jesus, were members of the Ni
Party. The tenth actor Jud
was not; he alone did not sh
their hatred of Jews.
Apparently, Vanessa, in
advocacy of the PLO, has
employed her keen mind
ponder what might possibly
democratic about a state
structed by the bloody hands I
IN HER zeal for the PL
campaign, she seems to hav
blotted out the recorded wr
nings of PLO plans for
Jewish future in the Middle East]
"The partitioning of Palestine I
1947 and the establishment f
Israel are fundamentally null at
void. .The claim of an historical
or spiritual tie between Jews and!
Palestine does not tally with the|
historical realities."

Redgrave seems well inclined |

the Council serves as a national

in developing programs to meet

The ban on support for the
PLO was contained in an amend-
ment presented by Sen. Jake
Garn (R, Utah) which also in-
corporated a ban on aid to three
African organizations. The
Senate adopted the overall
foreign aid appropriations bill u
$8.14 billion bv a vote of 53-38.
This represented a reduction of
three percent from the originally
planned $8.46 billion.
THE HOUSE also reduced the
amount of aid by four percent to
$7.46 billion. Funding for Israel
in the amount of $1,783 billion in
military and economic assistance
and $750 million in economic
support assistance to Egypt, are
not affected by the cuts. But
Jordan, Lebanon and other
countries receiving aid may be
affected by the reductions which
will be determined by the
Executive branch.
In the course of the debate.
Sen. Mark Hatfield (R.. Ore.)
attacked Israel's military ac-
tivity in Lebanon with U.S.
military equipment as a "mind-
less policy" that "breeds hate,
radicalism and the ongoing cycle
of fear and destruction." He did
not refer to PLO attacks on Israel
from Lebanon.

Friday, November 9,
Ben Lynn
Mike Steinberg

Our warmest congratulations to Ben Lynn, who was
recently elected to a one-year term as president of the Asolo
State Theater Festival Association. Ben was elected by the
Asolo Angels, a decision-making and fund-raising body. This
honor alone would be a special one, but it is even more so
because no person has ever been elected president of this board
who did not live in Sarasota! Ben is also on the board of Asolo
State Theater Inc. His wife, Liz, holds the office of secretary of
the Asolo Theater Women's Guild, which is a fund-raising and
hospitality organization. The Lynns will co-produce one of the
productions this year at Asolo. This will make their fifth year as
co-producers. They inform us that the season opens this year on
Feb. 14 for those of you who would like to take advantage of
some of the finest theater around. We think your election is
marvelous, Ben, and another strong link in your continuous
chain of service and dedication to your community.
We knew you'd want to hear about the hilarious antics of
Mike Steinberg, son of Judge Ralph and Marlene Steinberg.
Mike, who is a law student at the University of Florida, added
his comedic talents to make the school's recent homecoming
weekend a rip-roaring success. Mike participated in the "John
Marshall Bar Association Gator Grunt '79" satirical skits
which are written, produced, and acted in by the law students.
These skits make fun of and tear apart politicians, politics, the
country, the news, and just about everything else holy to man!
They are presented annually on the lawn behind the Student
Union on the Saturday morning of homecoming weekend. As in
other years, many state government figures (i.e. the governor,
Florida Supreme Court justices, legislators, president of the
Florida Bar, etc.) were in attendance to enjoy the fun.
Also, Mike participated in a pre-Gator Growl show (the
main entertainment event of the weekend) as a warm-up act for
guest star, Bob Hope. Mike's specialty is to sing old songs with
new comedic words he has written to these well-known tunes. He
has entertained audiences at many of the local pubs and music
halls in Gainesville. We think this talented sideline, in addition
to studying law, is just terrific, Mike keep 'em laughing!
Just wanted to tell you about Ruth Eliaa' new business. She
is importing and selling women's fashions those with a
classical look (imported from Canada, France, Italy, and a few
designs from America). All of her merchandise is at very af-
fordable prices and selected with the Florida lifestyle kept in
mind. Ruth shows out of her house for now, but hopes even-
tually to merge into a separate location. Loosely set, her hours
are Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. She suggests you call
first for an appointment, especially if you would like to come at
some time other than during her regular hours (259-1338). Ruth
has been a fashion designer for 22 years (most of the time in
Canada). She also spent six months designing in Europe. She
has designed under her own label for various manufacturers.
Also, at one time, Ruth had her own clothing factory. She has
designed for women and for children. So though Ruth's new
business is nothing new for her it is certainly exciting and
new for Tampa. Give her a call and see all the latest in classical
fashions from Europe!
Yesterday, the chartering of the local chapter of B'nai
B'rith Women took place at the Jewish Community Center. The
naming of the chapter, the signing of the petition for the charter,
and submitting of this petition, and the election of officers all
took place at this meeting. We will be telling you more about
this newly-formed organization and those people active in it in
the near future. However, we just wanted to extend our con-
gratulations to you, and especially to Sandy Kay and Shelley
Gellis who started B'nai B'rith Women just this past March and
now proudly herald a 60-person membership. Many happy and
productive years to this new group.
The Tampa evening chapter of Women's American ORT
will be holding the first of two annual garage sales on Saturday,
Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the home of Barbara Goldstein,
7313 Twelve Oaks Boulevard. This fund-raiser is not only a lot of
fun but cleans out everyone's house and raises money for ORT
at the same time! The second garage sale of the year will be held
in the spring. Whatever is left from the garage sale that did not
sell, will be donated to Tampa Jewish Social Services for the
Russian Resettlement program.
Freda Waller, publicity chairman of the Jewish Towers
Residents Association, informs us that the Towers will be
sponsoring a marvelous New Year's Eve dinner-dance. The 120
available tickets are on sale every day from Nov. 1-17 in the
lobby of the Towers, with Sarah Pullara in charge of sales. At a
mere $7 per ticket, members of the Residents Association can
enjoy a wonderful catered, seated dinner, dancing to a four-piece
band, and a program being planned by Ann Spector. So make
^our plans now for Dec. 31.
The Ameet chapter of Hadassah held its second fund-raiser
of the year on Oct. 20 at the Tampa Theatre. Forty-three people
attended the production of the musical "The Fantasticks
Chapter members Betty Shalett and Lynne Swirsky co-chaired
the arrangements of this lovely evening.
In addition. Ameet-Hadassah chapter president. Barbara
Karpay informs us that the Nov. 6 general[meeting rikhw
held at the Fairway Village Recreat.on Center had a most
fascinating program. Rabbi Werde (of Chabad House at the
University of South Florida) spoke on Cults the Newest
Threat to Our Jewish Children." Also.Betty Shalett presented a
short discussion on donor information. Lynne *"nr,i*y-
hospitality chairman, provided the refreshments after the
program, and Adrienne Golub. vice president in charge oi
programming, arranged for the speaker for the evening.
National Council of Jewish Women will be having an annual
"Bundle Party" at the JCC on Wednesday. Nov. 14. at 10:30

cheon for the price of a bundle of clean, salable merchandise,
plus two items of clothing on hangers. These bundles of clothing

Also. 30 door prizes (donated by local merchants) will be given
away at this luncheon. In charge of the lunch are Fran Bernstein

the general meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the
JCC. So get your Chanukah shopping done early at the
November ORT meeting!
Don't miss the JCC Book Fair which will run from Nov. 11-

B'nai B'rith president Marc Perkins informs us of two
functions that his organization held recently. On Oct. 30 at the
Jewish Community Center, they held an "Open House." B'nai
B'rith extended an invitation to every Jewish organization in
Tampa to send a representative to meet with the public. These
included fraternal, religious, and social service organizations for
both men and women. The environment was totally informal.
The objective was to enable the Jewish community to become
more familiar with the various organizations in town, so they
could then determine which of these organizations they would
like to participate in. Refreshments were served afterward.
Also, on Sunday, Nov. 4, B'nai B'rith sponsored a blood
drive at the Jewish Community Center. A bloodmobile was
stationed at the JCC from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to accept donations.
Donors and their families then received a lox and bagel brunch.
Sunday, Oct. 28. Irving and Marilyn Weissman were
presented the peace award at the State of Israel Bonds dinner
and reception held at Rodeph Sholom. Also receiving awards at
the dinner for service to the Jewish community and to their
synagogue, were the Weissmans' three children, Sandy Pegler,
Charles Weissman. and Jack Weissman, and Irene Freid (who is
Marilyn's mother) and Joe Weissman (Irving's father). One
could certainly say that this award was a family affair! As a
surprise for Marilyn and Irving, Mr. and Mrs. Isidore Lerman
(parents of Aida Weissman who is Charles' wife) flew in from
Miumi for the festivities. Afterwards, Aida served cake and ice
cream at home (for the family) in honor of husband Charles' 26th

Education in Judaism
(Second in Scries)
(Dedicated to my daughter. The Educator)
In Judaism there is no discrimination against a child bom
out of lawful wedlock. Once the identity of the father is clearly
known, there is no distinction in Judaic Law, so far as thr
parent-child relationship is concerned, between such a child anc
one bom in lawful wedlock. The general rule is that the lega!
obligations towards children are imposed on the father and not
on the mother. [Maggid Mishneh Ishut 21:18)
The father's duty to maintain his children includes all the
child's needs and daily care. Amongst the child's needs is in-
cluded the father's ( uty to educate his children. Also to teach
them a trade or p of ess ion and bear all necessary expenses
connected with this. IKidushin 29b) Until the child reaches the
age of six years, the above obligations must be borne by the
father even if he has limited means and the child has acquired an
inheritance. These obligations are imposed on the father by
virtue of his paternity, whether or not he is married to the child's
mother. [Shalot Tsivoth-Ribash 41)
The standard of maintenance to which children are entitled
is determined by their actual needs and not by the financial
status of the father. Therefore, the father may choose the quality
of the teacher to be hired or the school to be attended. {Kema, Eh
THE FOLLOWING are some excerpts from the Talmud on
education and educators:
R. Aha prohibited a teacher by oath from teaching any
longer, because he maltreated the children. Rabina reinstated
the teacher for they could not find another who taught so ef-
ficiently. (Bekoruth 46a)
R. Mesharsheya said to his sons: "When you go to your
teacher to learn, review your Mishnah and when you are sitting
before him look at his mouth. If possible study by the side of
water, so that your memory be improved." (Kerithoth 6a)
The teacher's honor should exceed that of the student's
parents, because both a man and his father are bound to honor
the teacher. (Kerithoth 28a)
RABA SAID: "A teacher of young children, a vine dresser.
ritual slaughterer (shochit). a blood-letter and a town scribe
are all liable to be dismissed immediately if inefficient, they
remain constantly under warning." The general principle is that
anyone whose mistakes can not be rectified (i.e. A shochit who
made the animal trefa, or a scribe who made a serious mistake in
a Torah is liable to be dismissed immediately. iBaba bathra
May the name of Joshua Ben Gamala, be praised, but for
him the Torah would have been forgotten. For at first if a child
had a father his father taught him. If he had no father, he did not
learn. They then passed a law that teachers of children should be
appointed in Jerusalem for from Zion Shall the Torah Go Forth
[Isaiah 2:3). However, even after that law, a child could not
attend the Jerusalem schools unless enrolled by his father. They
then ordained that teachers should be appointed in each
prefecture (town or province), and that boys should enroll at the
age of 16. At first this had some success. However, when the
teacher would punish them, they would quit school. Finally
Joshua Ben Gamala (a high priest in the year 60 CE) ordained
that teachers of young children should be appointed in each
district and town, and that children should be enrolled at age oi
six. IBaba Bathra-21a)
Raba said to R. Samuel Ben Shilath: "Before the age of six
do not accept pupils; from that age you can accept them, and
stuff them with Torah like an ox. When you punish a pupil hit
him only wit h a shoe latchet (lightly). The attentive one will read
by himself, and if one is inattentive, place him next to a diligent
pupil, so that he also will listen and become studious."
If a resident in a courtyard desires to become a teacher of
children the tenants (other residents) can not prevent this. If,
however, he is the head teacher, (who superintends the others)
vho has an exceptionally large number of visitors he may be
prevented from residing here, by the other tenants.
Raba said: "Children are not to be sent to school from one
town to another for fear they may come to harm on the way, but
uny parent can compel the community to appoint a town
teacher (shades of modem busing).
The number of students to be assigned to each teacher is 25.
If there are 50. we appoint two teachers, if there are 40 we ap-
point an assistant at the town's expense.
Raba also said: "If we employ a teacher who is liked by the
students and there is another teacher who is more learned, we do
not replace the first and hire the second teacher.
If there are two teachers, one who covers ground fast
(teaches much) but with mistakes, the other slowly but without
mistakes, we appoint the former.
R. Dimi from Nehardea on the other hand said, "that we
appoint as teacher the one who is slow but makes no mistakes,
for once a mistake is implanted it can not be eradicated." iBaba

and tell me what you think, which teacher would you choose?

2.000 crack troops put down
demonstrations at the cost of 40
lives. Mounted by Alawites to
protest the series of attacks that
have befallen members of the
mainly rural sect, the protests
reminded Assad that his position
of strength may not endure.
Indeed, the sectarian strife in
Latakia an Alawite stronghold
underlined the dilemma con-
fronting Assad and his en-
tourage: if he does not appease
the Alawites, he could lose a
crucial pillar of support. If he
does, the majority Sunni
Moslems, who resent Alawite
ascendancy, could revolt and
plunge the country into chaos.
prominent posts in Assad's
government, real power lies in the
hands of the Alawite religious
minority. Alawite influence has
diminished somewhat in the last
few years, but Alawites still
retain key positions in the army
and in the bureaucracy, thereby
fanning resentment.
Itamar Rabinovitch, a Tel
Aviv University expert on Syrian
politics, has written on the
Alawite-Sunni conflict. In his
view. Assad has not been
"willing to risk the coherence and
stability of his regime by
diversifying the sources of his
To mollify his Sunni critics.
Assad generally regarded as a
clever, cautious politician has
organized his government on a
dualistic basis. The core Ls com-
prised of Assad and his
lieutenants, who operate publicly
through a numln'r of institutions
and organizations that endow the
regime with a constitutional and
non-partisan appearance. Assad
is the central figure in both
systems, says Kabinovitch.
Because the Alawites wield so
much power, the suspicion
among Sunnis is that they have
enriched themselves at the ex-
pense of others. The Sunnis refer
to them as "the new elite"
because of their high-living ways,
and they have called for an end to
the system of privileges and
influence, of which the Alawites
are said to be the main
Ironically. Assad is responsible
for this development. After he
became head of state, the former
chief of the air force began to dis-
mantle the doctrinaire socialistic
system that his predecessors had
built. The resulting boom gained
more momentum following the
1973 Arab-Israeli war, favoring
the mercantile and landowning
classes, as well as the elite
associated with Assad's Ba'ath
HOWEVER, the boom -
fueled by increased aid from Arab
countries brought an inflation
rate of 25 percent and widened
the gulf between the minority for
whom the benefits were out-
weighed by the rising cost of
The situation was made worse
"because the new political elite
was lower middle class and rural
in origin, men whose lust for the
accumulation and spending of
wealth was little restrained by
culture, education, taste or civic
responsibility,'' writes a British
observer, David Hirst.
These, then, are the conditions
that spawned the renewed rise of
the Moslem Brotherhood, which
has been illegal in Syria for the
last 19 years.
IN ADDITION to denouncmg
the corruption of Syrian life, the
Moslem Brothers have declared
their opposition to the secularist
tendencies of the Ba'ath Party.
At its most fanatical, religious
revivalism takes the form of mur-

identified with the Assad regime.

and where labor matters are
discussed, it is almost exclusively
in the field of labor conditions,
wages and trade unions.
With Cuban forces near South
Africa's borders, Schwarz
remarks: "The most effective
way to combat Marxism is by
marketing and implementing a
system which is demonstratively
more attractive where the
working man not only enjoys
more benefits, but where he has
real hopes of improving his
position." He then turns to the
South African free market
"THERE IS much talk of free
market mechanisms being the
soundest basis for an economic
system. However, the free
market can only operate justly if
there is equality of bargaining
power in the market place.
Historical events have caused
inequality in bargaining power.
This is an issue quite separate
from color issues. The resources
available to capitalists in the
marketing mechanism the
ability to manipulate price?, f
monopolistic combines and the
sheer pressure of money
alone advantages in skills,
training, education and other
resource make the ordinary
citizen unable to compete equally
in the market place, and often
make it not a market place but a
jungle where the fittest survive."
Schwarz then recommends a
program of social democracy:
"The state must play a role. No
one objects to state interference
to provide physical protection by
laws, rules, courts and police
forces all this to ensure justice
and protection to the physically
WHY, THEN should there be
an objection to the protection of
the economically weak, to ensure
there is equality of bargaining
power in the market place?
Consumer protection is essential-
Rules against monopolistic abuse
must exist. Exploitation must be
stamped out."
Schwarz does not see the long-
term solution in terms of social
benefits, but in the creation of
jobs at a time of unemployment,
housing and the combatting of
rural poverty. The un-
derprivileged must he assisted to
prosper, says Schwarz, "if there
is not to be a Marxist-type
redistribution of wealth."

Will Israel Hand Jerusalem Back?
Egyptian Vice President Hosni Mubarak said
he believed Israel would eventually agree to hand
Jerusalem back to the Arabs. In an interview
published by the weekly Akhbar El Yom, he said:
"Experience has taught us that during talks
Israeli leaders begin by refusing to make any con-
cessions, then end up giving way."
Noting that Egyptian negotiators recognized
this and had achieved Israel's total withdrawal
from Sinai, he said: "The same thing will be
repeated over Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and
the other territories." Mubarak added: "Today
the entire world backs the Arab cause, rejects ter-
ritorial occupation by force and refuses to see
Jerusalem under Israeli occupation." Stressing
the need to continue efforts towards an overall
settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict, he also
said that "several Arab heads of state support
Egypt's point of view." He added: "The
American administration is no less interested
than Egypt in seeing Palestinian autonomy
established on the West Bank and in Gaza."
Igor Guberman. being held incommunicado on
a preliminary charge of trading in stolen icons,
has been transferred from the Dmitrov Prison,
about 40 miles north of Moscow, to the nearby
city of Zagorsk. Guberman's wife, Tatiana, was
told by the authorities that she will know the
actual charge against her husband when the trial
takes place.
There is growing speculation that Guberman
will actually be charged under Article 70 of the
Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic's
Criminal Code, which deals with "Anti-Soviet
Agitation and Propaganda." This article has been
used against many Soviet Jewish emigration
activists as well as non-Jewish dissidents.

Theological Seminary, where he is currently on
the faculty as professor of applied rabbinics,
joined the University in 1968 as assistant to the
president for student affairs.
He was appointed vice president in 1970, and in
1975 was named chairman of the Executive Com-

institution's four vice presidents, which served as
an interim governing body pending the election of

Of this number, he observed, "60,000 died."
Prof. Dobkowski, author of The Tarnished

anti-Jewish hatred in that it was much less

/rom Chicago, Hauben joined
ongregation Beth Am in Los
Angeles as associate cantor, a
position he was to hold for the
next 11 years. Singing for the
MGM movie The Fixer" with
the Los Angeles Cantor's
Ensemble was one of the exciting
points of being on the West Coast
according to Hauben.
BEING A religious school
educator had an unexpected
benefit. The father of one of
Hauben's Bar Mitzvah students
suggested to the cantor that a
certain young lady who was
working in his medical office
would be worth his while to meet.
The cantor took the doctor's
advice and he and his wife, Brina,
will celebrate their 20th wedding
anniversary next June. They
have one son, Sheldon, a fresh-
man at Vanderbuilt University in
Nashville, Tenn.
The Annual Jewish Music
Festival, now embarking on its
11th year, began the day Cantor
Hauben arrived in Tampa. "I
know that the first year they
went along with me but could not
really envision the cultural event
1 was trying to create," Hauben
reminisced. "Manuel Buchman,
of blessed memory, was the first
festival chairman. He and Sol
Walker, then president of Rodeph
Sholom, and Rabbi Stanley
Kazan were wonderful in support
of this crazy idea the new cantor
brought with him." Hauben
smiles as he looks over his office
of souvenirs and mementos of the
10 festivals gone by.
"Last year's Jewish Music
Festival featured Elinor Ross, a
native Tampan now with the
Metropolitan Opera Company,
and the Hoffman family. Maestro
Hoffman is the conductor of the
Florida Gulf Coast Symphony
and his wife, Esther Glazer, is a
world renowned violinist and
their children are all equally
talented in their own fields.
That's not a bad lineup for a
little congregational festival that
has grown." He smiles proudly
whenever the festival is
discussed. "Over 10 years we
have involved musicians from the
symphony, from the universities
from all over the Bay area. We
have created not only a musical
event, but a cultural event of
which we are all very proud."
Cantor Hauben, along with
Cantor Hauben at the begin
ning of his career.
Hazzan Moshe Meirovich of
Clearwater and Hazzan Josef
Schroeder, St. Petersburg, have
lormed the Sun Coast Cantors
and call themselves "The
N'ginah Ensemble." This group
is available for performing at any
type of program.
RECALLING the United
Synagogue of America con-
vention in Kiamesha Lake, N.Y.,
in 1975, when Rodeph Sholom
received the Solomon Schechter
Award for its Jewish Music
Festival, Cantor Hauben said he
wasn't sure who was closer to
fainting, himself or Gene Linsky,
then congregation president.
"Here we were in a room filled
with thousands of people, and
they are calling out
congregations from all over the
world for outstanding work and
when they called Tampa, we
could not believe it. It was like a
dream!" Hauben gladly recalls.
"Out of 900 synagogues, imagine
we won an award. And they only
give out 10!"
Besides training all the Bar
and Bat Mitzvah students and
teaching what he calls
"synagogue skills" to the Hillel
school children, Hauben has also
taught in the community. He
proudly tells of lecturing on
