Federation Adopts Austere Budget
In an unprecedented move, the
Tampa Jewish Federation Board
of Directors approved what many
agency and Federation leaders
term a "crisis" budget for the
first six months of 1981. While
agency requests totaled over
1377,000 only $330,200 was
available for allocations to local
agencies, explained Herb
Swarzman, Chairman of the
Tampa Jewish Federation
Budget and Allocations Com-
mittee. "What this means,"
Swarzman stated, "is that all
local agencies were asked to
continue with the same amount
of funds that they have been
operating with for the past 12
months. Wa realize that in an
inflationary period this places a
tremendous burden on aD of our
agencies, but the simple fact is
that we are not raising enough
The Tampa Jewish Federation
has changed from a January 1
calendar year to a Jury 1-June 30
fiscal year to allow the budgeting
process to take place after the
annual campaign. The funds
currently being allocated are
from the 1980 campaign which
realized $730,000. Out of the
$644,450 allocabie dollars, Israel
and world Jewry win receive
$302,250 or 47 percent, while
$330,200 will remain locally and
$12,000 will be allocated to
national agencies. The 1980
Campaign goal waa $1,000,000.
Only $730,000 waa realized.
Following a meeting of Budget
Committee members and the
presidents, directors and
treasurers of the local agencies,
Hope Barnett, president of the
Tampa Jewish Federation,
stated: "I am pleased with the
response we received from our
agency leadership. They have
recognised the serious situation
m which we find ourselves and
their pledge of support to the
1981 campaign is moat en-
couraging. While we know the
growing and expanding needs of
the Tampa Jewish community,
we must also recognise the even
greater needs in Israel. The
problems are real and only

community for the 1981 cam

Fulfill Promise of the Galilee
The Jewish Agency develop-
ment of the Galilee, so typical a
story of modern Israel, is sup-
ported by funds provided by the
United Jewish Appeal. The
Tampa Jewish Federation is the
local arm of the United Jewish
Appeal. Funds provided by the
local campaign go directly
towards these projects.

In the opposite direction, just a
few miles to the east and equally
within reach, is Israel's border

access routes to the region's
scattered Jewish settlements.
Tal El is a foothold, a pre-
settlement or mitzpe, in an area
of Israel rich in centuries of
Jewish history where Arabs
outnumber Jews by 8 to 1.
Viewed from here, the Jewish
Agency's plan to strengthen the
Jewish presence in the Galilee
takes on greater urgency a
plan supported by funds alloca-
ted from community campaigns
through the United Jewish
Appeal. And the spirit of the
chalutzim (pioneers) who are
settling here provides new in-
sight into the determination and
selflessness of Israel's people.
Tal El has no school, no
medical facilities, no telephone
lines. A crude rocky road is the
only way in or out. A heavy rain
can rearrange the barren land-
scape, and the wind is ceaseless.
The only housing available is
small temporary shelters, and,
because of severe cuts in the
Jewish Agency budget this year,
there is no guarantee a perma-
nent settlement will ever be
established. Life here tends to get
reduced to its most basic terms.
This tiny, isolated and
vulnerable community is typical
of the new settlements develop-
ing in the Galilee. The terrain and
living conditions are foreboding,
and the threat of attack by ter-
rorists is as much a part of life
here as the trip commuting resi-
dents make to their jobs each day
some as long as four hours
and nightly civilian guard

Agency has received 1,400 appli-

our greatest strengths. We need
to feel the soil under our finger-
nails again, to wonder at the
sudden blooming of the fields

region was slowed.
Today a new decade has
brought a new plan to develop 30
mitzpim linked to 14 major
permanent settlements, virtually
all with industrial economies,
and, perhaps most significantly,
populated by a new breed of
pioneer who is equipped with
both the skills and the experience
to make the plan a reality.
Les Amdur, a former South
African businessman, is one of
these new settlers. The leader of a
group of 40 of his countrymen
and women who will populate the
proposed permanent settlement
of Manof in the Segev region,
Amdur has the remarkable
ability to make dots and lines on
a map come to life and a thriving
community suddenly appear on a
deserted mountaintop.
"There's an experimental
school here, and that's a mar-
velous shopping center there. .a
sports arena. .and the health
center," Amdur exnli
"Across the valley and over th
ndge there is a magnificent
tjonal park. And here are thei
logically sound factories, aim

Now living in an absorpti
center in Carmel, Amdur and
fellow chalutzim already haJ
started a complex of small bu
nesses ranging from synthe
diamonds to cosmetics, and thj
are contributing to the econoi
stabilization of an older s
ment a few kilometers away.

Solomon built his royal city at
The first modern era settle-
ment was established at Rosh
Pina in 1878, and was followed by
a dramatic increase in population
through the 1920s and '30s.
German Jews fleeing Nazism
established the first Jewish
settlement in the estern Galilee in
1934, and others soon followed.
But after the War of Indepen-
dence, although the Galilee was
under Israeli control, a demo-
graphic and ecological shift
began which eventually led to
Arab predominance in the area.
Returning Arabs violated an
agreement with the Israeli
government not to use arable
land for building homes, and
their flocks grazed fields intended
for agriculture. Israel tried to
stem this tide in the 1950s with a
new group of settlements in the
area, but shortages of arable land
and of practical farming ex-
perience among Jewish settlers
proved too great an obstacle. In
two decades alone the Arab
population trebled.
Throughout the 1960s and '70s
Israel attempted a different ap-
proach, encouraging the estab-
lishment of moshavim based on
light industry rather than agri-
culture. But these settlements
proved extremely costly to main-
tain, intervening wars further
strained an already overburdened
economy, and progress in the

paign can we solve this financial
crisis," Barnett concluded.
Kach agency has been asked to
project their budget needs for
fiscal 1980-81 according to Gary
Alter, TJF Executive Director, to
enable the Federation to
establish a 1981 campaign goal.
"We know from the 1980 request
for $377,000 that the 1981
campaign will have to realize at
least $980,000 to meet minimum
local needs," Alter said.
The Federation Board ap-
proved a budget committee
recommendation that the 1981
U.IA allocation be a minimum of
45 percent of the gross campaign
receipts and a minimum of 50
percent in 1982. "Net dollars to
UJA have declined over recent
years as the needs of local
agencies have increased," Alter
commented. In 1974, with a
campaign of $600,000 local
agencies received $148,000 with
almost 65 percent allocated to
overseas needs.
"It is obvious with inflation
and rapid growth, our
campaign efforts have not
kept pace with the needs.
The only solution is to either
cut back on local services or
increase the campaign."
"We are very proud of what
our agencies have accomplished
and 1 think the community will
respond by providing the
necessary funds to meet these
needs." Swarzman concluded.

Let No One Get Tired
At a time when the Israel Bonds Organization
has surpassed the $5 billion sales mark, the organiza-
tion also announces:
t A commitment to produce an additional $150
million in cash by the end of the year;
A new $50 million State of Israel Variable
Rate Bond for employee benefit plans and union
funds only, with a yield of 7.5 percent minimum rate
supplemented by one-half the excess, if any, of the
average prime rate over 7.5 percent as determined
twice annually.
These announcements make eminent sense
against a backdrop of the strained realities of world
monetary affairs and, of course, the volatile political
condition in the Middle East, making Israel's
struggle against inflation and the need to expand its
economy under the most unfavorable conditions at
home and abroad an absolute "must."
Speaking of Israel's economic challenges ahead,
Gary R. Gerson, chairman of the South Florida Israel
Bonds Campaign, has said, "Let no one get tired." If
anything, the imperative ought to be even more
forceful: Let no one dare get tired.
In this context, the State of Israel Bonds
Organization has called for payment of 1980 pledges
before the end of the year and is designating Dec. 14
and 21 as Crash Cash Week for Israel Bonds.
As Gerson has noted, Israel is still in a financial
position which requires that the world Jewish com-
munity continue to send help. During the past 30
years, the Israel Bond Organization has given assist-
ance in building every aspect of Israel's economy.
Bonds have strengthened its national infrastructure
in such areas as energy, water development, tele-
communications, industrial parks, oil exploration,
and the building of airports, harbors and railroad
Dec. 14 and 21 is a red-letter date in this 30-year
period. Crash Cash Week emphasizes that outstand-
ing commitments for this year in our community
must be paid before the beginning of the New Year so
the money can go directly to Israel. Now. Let no one
get tired.
Some Specious Reasoning
Since the election of Ronald Reagan there has
been a steady stress of media reports and commen-
taries that Reagan will have to move away from his
all-out campaign support for Israel and "tilt" toward

German-Jewish Ties Need Boot
A REMARKABLE interview
is reported between West Ger-
man Chancellor Helmut Schmidt
and Israel's Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir that took place
in Bonn just one month ago.
According to Shamir, Schmidt
said a number of things that
require careful consideration.
Among the least of them was
Schmidt's observation that the
Iraq-Iran war has improved
Israel's international standing.
If this was a coarse statement)
of opinion because it substitutes
the purported excellence of
muscle for the meekness- of
morality, it merely reflected the
low level of diplomatic im-
peratives that are prevalent
among heads of state and pro-
fessional government bureau-
crats generally.
BUT SCHMIDT'S observa-
tion was at least refreshing for its
candor it frankly relied on the
vocabulary of power politics
rather than on the saccharine
morality that rich folks cus-
tomarily feed their poor relatives
as a prelude to cutting them off
from the payroll.
The interview was all the more
remarkable because Schmidt's
candor extended into some very

survivor and resistance fighter
during the Holocaust. This
tended to bring the reality of
Holocaust into the classroom.
Most questions asked by the
youngsters of Wasserberger
centered around his age at the
time of persecution and what he
had to eat and do in order to sur-
vive and fight the Nazis from the
forests of Europe. "I was 16-
years-old when I escaped," he
told the students, "when parti-

was on, which was headed for

night a terrific "Sports Night" took place at the Temple. In
addition to hot dogs and accompanying gourmet goodies for the
kids, everyone enjoyed the sports program with Tampa Bay
Bucs linebacker Aaron Brown. An Ohio State All-American in
1977, Brown played his high school ball at Warren, Ohio, where
in 1973, he was named UPI's high school lineman of the year. In
the off season, Brown works as an assistant coach at Plant High
School and attends classes at the University of South Florida.
Needless to say, the evening was an exciting one and a most
successful get-together for Father and Son and Daughter at the
Temple. ,

Fisher Says
We Need Maximun Input
Max Fisher, chairman of
the Board of Governors of
the Jewish Agency, who
has been a behind-the-
scenes adviser on Jewish
issues and Israel to several
Republican Presidents, told
editors and publishers of
American Jewish publica-
tions that the task of the
Jewish community during
the Administration of Pres-
ident Reagan will be "to
maintain our presence" and
to assure that it has "maxi-
mum input on issues of
concern to us."
Addressing the American Jew-
ish Press Association, which held
its midwinter conference here in
conjunction with the 49th Gen-
eral Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations, Fisher
stressed that the most important
aspect of the new Administration
will be the kind of foreign policy
advisers Reagan chooses.
HE NOTED that from all
indications, Reagan's tran-
sitional team as well as his pre-
liminary choices for the posts of
Secretary of State, Treasury and
national security adviser are
basically pro-Israel, as is the
President-elect himself.
Fisher said that among those
targeted to head the State De-
partment are Gen. Alexander
Haig, former commander of the
NATO forces, "a great friend of
Israel"; and George Shultz, who
is heading Reagan's economic
policy coordinating committee
and a former Treasury Secretary,
also a friend of Israel. The
leading candidate for the post of
Treasury Secretary, Fisher
added, is William Simon, who
was Treasury Secretary under
President Ford.
"I hope Dick (Richard) Allen
will be the foreign policy ad-
viser," Fisher said. Allen was an
adviser to Nixon who left the
Reagan campaign in the last
week of the election windup after
an article in the Wall Street
Journal tagged him as having
been involved in some financial
irregularity while in the Nixon

Reagan's transition team in-

individuals. He mentioned Sen.
Richard Stone, who heads the
Senate Foreign Relations Sub-
committee on the Middle East,
and who was defeated in the
Florida Democratic primaries;
Sen. Henry Jackson (D., Wash.),
and former Undersecretary of
State, Eugene Rostow.
Fisher noted that former Sec-
retary of State Henry Kissinger
will have "an important input" in
the new Administration but that
he is unlikely to be the new Sec-
retary of State.
Fisher said he spent "a great
deal of time struggling with
myself" whether to support
Reagan's candidacy, since he
supported former President Ford
as the Republican Presidential
candidate. "I had three meetings
with Reagan before I was re-
assured" that he would be "a
strong ally of Israel," Fisher
REFERRING to the Moral

Fisher said Reagan has already
made it dear that just because
the Moral Majority supported his
Presidential bid it does not follow
that he supports the movements

Nevertheless, Fisher said that
while both the GOP and the
Moral Majority are pro-Israel, if
for no other reason than they are
anti-Communist, "we will have to
watch out for the Moral
He expressed the view that
Reagan will not be a President of
the new right but will move
toward the middle. Fisher
warned, however, that
histrocially, the extreme right is
a danger to the Jewish com-
munity. He stressed several
times that America is a plural-
istic society and that it must
remain so.

and that "Christian Republic"

Williams fled persecution in order

Providence, Rhode Island.
What is historically true is that
Baptist farmer-preachers,
Methodist circuit-riders, and dis-
senting Presbyterians became
the foremost champions of free-
dom of conscience, religious
liberty, and the principle of the
separation of church and state.
They suffered persecution, im-
prisonment, and ruthless harass-
ment at the hands of the
Anglican Establishment in
Virginia and elsewhere to uphold
those fundamental democratic
principles not only for themselves
but for all Americans.
It is both ironic and sad that

face the truth about our past and
our moral responsibilities in the
complex, real world today.
As every major church
historian documents, the great
majority of Americans in the
18th Century were outside any
church, and there was an over-
whelming indifference to religion.
Dr. William Warren Sweet wrote
("Revivalism in America") that
"taking the colonies as a whole,
the ratio of church membership
was one to 12." Dr. Robert
Handy states, "No more than ten
percent of Americans in 1800
were members of churches" ("A
History of the Churches in the
United States and Canada").
As a result of the vast labor
and the rough, uncouth hard-
ships encountered by the
pioneers, frontier communities
became course and partially wild
societies, with little or no social
restraints, and filled with low
vices and brutal pleasures. The
West was described as "the land
of sinful liberty" with large
sections of the frontier society
debauched and whiskey-sodden.

Israel 'Regrets' Turkey Decision
Israel has expressed
"regret" at Turkey's move
to reduce the level of dip-
lomatic relations between
the two countries. The
Foreign Ministry confirmed
reports from Ankara that
the military government
there decided to lower the
rank of its senior represen-
tative in Tel Aviv from
Minister to Second Sec-
retary and has asked Israel
to do likewise.
ficials here said that Israel's
Minister in Ankara, Dr. Ya'acov
Cohen, would be returning home
"in a matter of months." They
said it was still unclear whether
the Turks would insist on the
withdrawal of the Israel military
attaches at the two legations.
the Turkish decision had been
more or less expected for the past
several weeks. Israel, they said,
had not sent any special envoy to
Ankara to try and head it off but
had enlisted the help of friendly
third parties who brought their
influence to bear on Turkey and
perhaps prevented an even more
serious rupture.
policy" that is, fostering ties
with the three major non-Arab
states on the borders of the
Middle East: Turkey. Iran and
Ethiopia. In the wake of radical
changes in the two latUr
countries, and in the wake
apparently of heavy Arab
pressure on Turkey, not a great
deal remained of that ambitious
Nevertheless, some Israeli
observers refuse to slip into
despondency. They insist that
the underlying confluence of
interests which made the
"periphery policy" a reality in
the past still exist in the present
and could gain expression once
again in the future.

Turkey and Israel have never
had ambassadorial level links,
but ever since 1949, they have
been represented in each other's
country by diplomats holding the fc j*a
formal rank of "Charge __**
d'Affaires A.I." {ad interim). In
Israel's case, most of these
diplomats have in fact been
selected from the highest echelon
of the foreign service since
Ankara was considered a par-
ticularly important post.
Both countries have until now
maintained medium sized
legations in the other country.
Presumably now the number of
diplomats in the two legations,
and not merely the rank of the
senior ones, will be reduced.

The two West Bank mayors
were summarily expelled from
Israel-held territory last May,
only hours after Palestinian
terrorists gunned down six
yeshiva students in Hebron.
They were not accused of direct
complicity in the crime but were
held responsible for creating the
climate for such acts by their
repeated nationalistic and anti-
Israel pronouncements.
PARIS (JTA) Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir of
Israel made clear his country's
continued opposition to any
peace initiative in the Middle
East undertaken by the
European Economic Community
He told reporters at a press
conference here that Israel did
not and could not accept the
Common Market countries' stand
on self-determination for the
Palestinians or a change in the
status of Jerusalem.
Shamir, on a five-day private
visit on the invitation of the
French United Jewish Appeal,
spoke in the aftermath of the
EEC's summit meeting in
Luxembourg at which the nine
member states decided to renew
contracts with the Middle East
states in search of a solution to
the Arab-Israeli conflict. The
meeting did not produce any-
thing similar to the EEC's Venice
declaration of last June which
stressed that the Palestine
Liberation Organization must be
associated with the the Middle
East peace process.
BUT THE decision to continue
the initiative implied that the
Venice declaration remains its
basis. Shamir warned that EEC
statements such as the Venice
declaration and the communique
issued in Luxembourg "risk en-
couraging (Arab) extremists and
increasing regional tensions."
He said Israel cannot accept
West European proposals for its
withdrawal to its 1967 borders,
nor can it entrust its security to
foreign guarantees. The EEC
initiative will be pursued under
the direction of The Netherlands
Foreign Minister, Christoph van
der Laauw, who succeeds
Luxembourg Foreign Minister
Gaston Thom as chairman of the
EEC Council of Ministers.
Shamir stressed that Israel
wants to maintain a dialogue
with all EEC member states.
"We want to increase our meet-
ings, explain our positions and
try to reduce divergencies. We
want to develop good relations
with all EEC member states in
spite of differences on political
stands," he said.

Foreign Minister Shamir
A dominant theme of that
report was the change I saw
occurring from Germany's
previous special relationship"
with Israel to a pro-PLO, pro-
\rub tilt. It seemed to be hap-
pening right before my eyes in
my various discussions with
Foreign Ministry spokesmen in
My overwhelming desire since
then has been to return to
Germany lor more in-depth inter-
viewa on the highest echelons of
government, and 1 have been
given every indication that all the
appropriate doors would now be
opened to me at will.
I HAVE no reason to assume
this would not be so. It is, for
example, urgent to resurrect the
Schmidt-Shamir interview and to
ask Chancellor Schmidt to
elaborate on his confession that
EEC pressure has been largely
responsible for the Federal
Republics anti-Israel voting
record to date.
It is urgent to have clarified
just what is the nature of the
evidence that Bonn would require
to establish a relationship be-
tween the PLO and the new
Kuropean anti-Semitism before it
is prepared to repudiate the PLO.
And it is above all urgent to re-
establish the "special relation-
ship" that history has created
between Germany and Israel
between Germany and world
Jewry as the first bulwark of a
startlingly vital recrudescence of
international anti-Semitism: for
example, to nip in the bud the
unspeakable lie that there is a
clear testament of faith between
world anti-Semitism and present-
day Germany when no such
testament exists.

bitter street fighting with Jews and left-wingers during
the 1930s, died at his home near Paris Dec. 2 at the age of
84. An admirer of Hitler and would-be fuehrer of Britain.

Mosley founded his Fascist movement in 1932 after
12 years as a Member of Parliament, first as a Con-
servative and later as a Laborite.
HIS AFFINITY for the Nazis who came to power ir.
Germany a year later marked him as a menace to British
democracy and a danger to British Jewry. After the war
Mosley claimed he was hot anti-Semitic and had fough'
Jews in self-defense because they wanted Britain to go ti
war with Germany.
During the 1950s and 1960s. Mosley attempted to
revive his Fascist Union from exile, but he was displaces
by a new wave of younger generation racist group.-

Under the title. "Evangelicals and Jews in an
Age of Pluralism," the meeting is bringing to-
gether more than 70 leading scholars, theo-
logians, clergymen and religious educators from
both faith communities and from all parts of the
United States.

relief has been announced by the president of the

Jewish community by the JDC as its represen-
tative for overseas relief.
JDC, noted Robinson, is opening its mailbox to
those who wish to help. According to Ralph I.
Goldman, executive vice president of JDC, the
agency, acting in cooperation with HIAS, has
instructed its staff in Rome to make themselves
available to the Italian authorities for relief work
and has begun soliciting volunteers from among
the Soviet emigrant population awaiting visas to

DV Dr* and Dov Izraeli. women and
Sepharadim in managerial positions are not, on
the whole, perceived as less competent or less
effective managers than male, Ashkenazi or
Israeli managers in identical managerial positions
exhibiting identical managerial behavior. Almost
too good to be true, the good news of no sex or
ethnic prejudice in management in Israel has,
however, a catch to it.
The bad news: The equal evaluation of males
and females, Sepharadim, Ashkenazim and
Israelis was found to be the case regarding
women and Sepharadim who have already
demonstrated experience, ability, skill and
achievements as managers. Women and
Sepharadim without proven experience and
success were evaluated somewhat lower than
their Ashkenazi and Israeli male counterparts.

Palestinian People's Solidarity Day
Fizzled Despite Lavish Effort
lied as a Day of Solidarity with
Palestinian People and their
gpirations. It had the official
Hissing of the United Nations. It
ns lavishly financed by the
Arab League, the Arab-Swiss
friendship Association and the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion delegation to the UN here. It
ns to be a propaganda coup for
lie Palestinian cause and against
But it fizzled, due in large
peasure to the ineptness of the
iganizers, according to journal-
gu attending the various events.
Even the elements conspired
gainst it.
Palestine Day was delcared as
in official day of celebration by
the UN General Assembly in
1977. It is observed on Nov. 29,
the anniversary of the UN
decision of November 29, 1947 to
partition Palestine into Jewish
ind Arab states. The first thing
to go wrong here was the press
conference featuring Mayor
Bassam Shaka of Nablus.
Shaka lost both his legs in a
bomb explosion last June. The
dime, widely attributed to
Jewish extremists, remains un-
nlved. But the West Bank
Mayor is considered a martyr in
Arab and pro-Arab circles.
THE WORLD news media was
on hand to record his remarks.
But Shaka spoke in Arabic, and
die interpreter hired for the
occasion was incompetent, and
his words were lost to the vast
majority of reporters. The overall
impression was poor. Journalists
Ml the press conference angered
tt having wasted their time.
Some remarked that the PLO
delegation should have spent its
money for a qualified translator
rather than on a lavish reception.
Another event billed an Israeli
journalist, Amnon Kapeliuk, as a
participant in "Palestine Day."
Kapeliuk accepted the invitation
to Geneva, apparently under the
impression that he would take
part in a round-table discussion
it the local university with the
West Hank Arab poetess and
journalist, Raymonda Tawil.
When Kapeliuk became aware
of the propaganda nature of the
occasion, he declined to go along
with his Arab hosts. At the
round-table he spoke only about
peace prospects.
AT A PRESS conference later,
lie answered questions about
Israel's internal political
situation His journalist
colleagues were impressed by his
frankness and his refusal to
indulge in propaganda.
An art exhibition, an Arab
buffet and Arab folk dances were
part of the program at a public
hail over the weekend. But
Geneva's notorious wind, the
"Bize," was blowing at full
strength. It was bitter cold, and
most of the Swiss preferred to
stay home.
The only successful event was
the UN meeting held at the
Palais Des Nations in the
presence of UN officials, diplo-
mats and the Geneva authorities.
The usual succession of anti-
Israel speeches was delivered by
representatives of unaligned
nations, the African Unity
Group, the International Com-
mission of Jurists, the PLO, the
Socialists and, again. Mayor
Shaka of Nablus. With the highly
professional UN translators in
attendance, his remarks were
Observers here noted that
Arab influence at the UN in
Geneva is such that UN em-
ployes felt obliged to attend the
event, lest they incur the anger of
their superiors by staying away.
A MASS demonstration of
solidarity with the Palestinian
people was held in Utrecht
Saturday by the recently formed
Association of Palestinians in
Holland, the Netherlands Pales-
tine Committee and other pro-
Palestine and leftist groups. But
the masses failed to materialize.
The huge hall was half empty.
Peak attendance was estimated
at no more than 1,700 and most
of the time the audience was far
smaller as people left, apparently
out of boredom.
A counter-demonstration out-
side the hall drew large contin-
gents of police who frequently
outnumbered the audience inside.
U.S. to be Shipping
Spare Parts to Jordan
The U.S. has confirmed
that military spare parts
and ammunition will be air-
lifted to Jordan "within the
next week or ten days"
against the background of
continuing tension along
the Jordanian-Syrian
State Department spokesman
John Trattner said, "The Penta-
gon confirmed this morning that
the U.S. has agreed, at Jordan's
request, to accelerate deliveries
of some items already in the pipe-
line; spares, ammunitions, small
arms munitions already on order.
I don't have any other details
about the material we are send-
ing," he said.
HE ADDED, "You can assume
the decision was made on the
highest level in the last 24 hours.
Deliveries will be made on ap-
proximately five flights of C-141
aircraft arriving (in Jordan)
sometime within the next week or
ten days."
Trattner stated that "On the
general situation we remain
hopeful that the tension on that
border can be resolved through
diplomacy." However, he could
not say whether the tensions are
Asked if there had been some
withdrawals of troop concentra-
tions, Trattner siad he did not
have "any confirmation that
there has been an agreement or
any additional strength added to
the border area by either side or
any confirmation that anything
has been taken away by either
side "
IN ANOTHER development,
the Senate and the House passed
the foreign aid authorization bill
for fiscal year 1981. It provides
Israel with $786 million in eco-
nomic support funds and $1.4
billion in military sales credits.
Egypt will receive $750 million in
economic support funds and $550
million in military sales credit It
will receive an additional $274
million in food grants under
Public Law 480.
Jordan is to receive $50 million
in economic support funds and
$50 million in military sales

A Reader Reports
She Rose to Say
A Few Words
Phyllis Kaye, of Pompano Beach, Fla., reports
the following:
In an upper New York State city, more than 80
Jewish men and women gathered at the funeral
parlor to pay their last respects to Mr. Norman
Finkle. The young rabbi presiding at the service rose
to his feet.
"Friends of Mr. Finkle," he began. "Members
of the family of Mr. Finkle, my profound con-
dolences. As most of you know, I am the new rabbi
I arrived in your fair city only yesterday.
"Being a complete stranger to the community, I
am grieved not to know about Mr. Finkle's life and
his past good deeds, and I think we would all of us
welcome a few remarks from someone in this
Two minutes passed in silence. Three minutes.
Five minutes. Then there was a rustling sound as a
woman stood up, an imposing figure to whom every-
one turned their eyes.
"My name is Henrietta Liebowitz," she began.
"As long as no one seems to wish to talk about Mr.
Finkle, I'd like to say a few words about Hadassah."
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
VAYIGASH The other brothers were overcome with fear and
sorrow when Joseph insisted that Benjamin remain in Egypt,
for Benjamin was Jacob's youngest son, all that was left him of
a beloved wife. Joseph was moved to pity and he ordered the
court cleared, whereupon he revealed himself to his brothers.
"I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt," he
said. "Do not be ashamed, for God sent me before you to pre-
serve life."
Then Joseph invited his brothers to come to live in Egypt
and to bring their father there. When the brothers returned to
Canaan and told Jacob that Joseph was alive and well, and that
he was ruler over Egypt, Jacob wept with joy.
"Let us go, my sons, to the land of Egypt," he cried.
"Joseph my son is yet alive; I will go and see him before I die."
Next morning Jacob set out from Beersheba. His sons took
Jacob their father, their wives, and their little ones, in the
wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry them. And Jacob and
all his family came to Egypt and settled there. Pharaoh was
good to them and the Children of Israel were happy in his land.
