With the 1981 Tampa Jewish

Levine stated "that this was

support they desperately need,"
he stressed. The impact of the
shortfall has already been felt by
those who can least sustain
additional cuts in service: the
youth, the elderly and the
In Tampa, Levine noted, the
Federation stands at the center of
Jewish life, maintaining essential
programs and services. "In face
of growing inflation, rapidly
escalating demand for services,
the emergence of new and
complex problems, the
responsibility of meeting our
local needs becomes imperative."
Tampa Campaign events
currently underway include the
Pacesetter Divison under the
leadership of Herbert Friedman,
which is completing its solici-
tations; the Heritage Division,
co-chaired by Herb Swarzman
and Dr. Carl Zielonka, which met
last Wednesday evening, and the
Special Gifts Division, headed by
Roger Mock and Terry Aidman,
which will meet Feb. 11.
"The only way we can insure
the continuity of these vital
programs in Tampa, Israel and
throughout the world is by
meeting the SI Million campaign
goal," Levine stressed.
Reagan Aides Study
Middle East Policy
Tampa Endowment
Fund Created
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration said that it is
reviewing "the entire
policy" of the U.S. toward
the Arab-Israeli conflict,
including the issue of Jew-
ish settlements on the West
Bank and the attitude
toward the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization.
This disclosure was made at
the State Department in response
to questions as to whether the
Reagan Administration was con-
sidering the announcement by
the Israeli government in Jeru-
salem that it will build 10 more
settlements on the West Bank in
the next five months before
Israel's parliamentary elections.

He added that The new Ad-
ministration is reviewing the

He said the State Department is
"taking the lead" in this review

review does not mean a change in
U.S. policy:

will be or will not be changes,"
Dyess said. "I don't mean to

served that "the study should be

pressed by the new American

now famous Commentary article
of November, 1979 in which she
stated that "A position of con-

politically appropriate."

disadvantage of Israel. The new

Israeli diplomats here ex-

In that connection, Blum
mentioned Reagan's characteri-

Organization as a terrorist
organization and his reference to
the legality of Jewish settlements
on the West Rank.
"We are also pleased with his
pronouncements concerning
Jerusalem," Blum said, adding:
"We are confident that these

known for her staunch support of
Israel and has expressed it in
many statements. According to
political observers here, Kirk-
patrick will bring to the UN a
more pragmatic U.S. policy.
The observers said that al-
though the Reagan Adminis-
tration is expected to put less
emphasis than the Carter
Administration on the UN in
dealing with international pro-
blems and their solution, the U.S.
nevertheless will be more in-
volved with developments here
and will not let anti-American
forces gain ground.

Haig as having said that the

Dyess was reminded that Pres-

Rosen, who was Press Attache
at the U.S. Embassy in Teheran
when it was seized by student
revolutionaries Nov. 4, 1979, had
served with the Peace Corps in
Iran in the 1960s. The Iranian
militants had referred to him as
"a famous spy and plotter."
PLOTKIN, a businessman on
his first trip outside of the U.S.,
arrived in Teheran in October,
1979 seeking business oppor-
tunities and chanced to be in the
U.S. Embassy when it was
seized. He was born in New York
and has lived in California for the
past 18 years.
Kalp's duties at the Embassy
are unknown. The militants
accused him of being a CIA
agent. He had served in Vietnam.
He told his brother by telephone
after landing at Wiesbaden that
because of repeated attempts to
escape, he was beaten by his
captors, kept in solitary confine-
ment for five months and denied
mail from home.
Many of the former hostages
suffered maltreatment at the
hands of the Iranians, but none
apparently was singled out
because of his Jewish origin.

services were held Monday
morning at the West Point
Chapel for the returning

reunion at the military
In the opening prayer, Rabbi
Avraham Soltes, the Jewish
chaplain at West Point, declared:
"Grant them the pa'tience and
faith now that we are close by to
reach out to us across gaps of un-
shared experience they will never
fully understand, even as their
hearts reached out to us across
endless valleys of distance and
fear, of silence and despair."
Soltes was joined in the pray-
ers by the Rev. Richard P. Camp
Jr., the Protestant chaplain, and
Father James Tubridy, the
Catholic chaplain. The 17-
member Jewish cadet choir
joined in with the three other
choirs at the academy, Protes-
tant, Catholic and Evangelical, to
sing at the service.
There are three Jews among
the returning 52 Americans who
were held for 444 days in
Teheran: Barry Rosen, 36, of

Recalling Reagan's Vow
With the speculation growing daily about just
what President Reagan's new Administration will do
so far as Israel and the Middle East are concerned,
we hope that what is especially clear in Washington
is the wide disparity between Egypt's international
image as a peace-maker and the cold reality of
Egyptian politics on a day-to-day basis.
Last week, for instance, Egypt suddenly barred
Israel from the International Book Fair which
opened in Cairo. President Sadat has apparently
since lifted the ban when he "discovered" it.
Now comes the news that a recently-published,
official Egyptian map of the Middle East intended
for tourist use simply ignores the existence of Israel
altogether. What is shown of Israel is called
Meanwhile, Israel continues to be charged with
"intransigence" and many other sins in the sanctus
sanctorum of the U.S. State Department and, of
course, in the sanctimonious parliaments of the
European Economic Community.
All of this is especially significant as Reagan
Administration officials this week made the surprise
announcement that they expect to open an exam-
ination into U.S. foreign policy toward Israel.
Let the record be clear. President Reagan
minced no words when he spoke during his election
campaign about any of these subjects: Israel and
Jerusalem, Israel and the settlements in Gaza and
the West Bank, Israel and the Palestine Liberation
He must be made to stick to his words.
Pope's Metamorphosis
We observe with awe the metamorphosis in the
man. He is Pope John Paul II. What he said when he
was elevated to become the Prince of the Church is
not what he is saying today about Catholic-Jewish
In fact, some of the Pope's more recent pro-
nouncements on Jews and Judaism sound like the
venomous utterances of St. John of the Cross.
All of which is particularly significant in a world
which sees the sudden recrudescence of anti-
It is therefore hard enough for the best-intended
Christians to preach one thing about Jews and to
practice another. But when so distinguished a
Catholic leader as the Pope, himself, makes ques-
tionable statements about Jews, Judaism and Israel,
it does seem we are in for harder times.
French Anti-Semite's
Work Appears in Holland
AMSTERDAM (JTA) The first issue of the
Celine Journal, established by the Celine Society to
propagate the works of the late French author, Louis Fer-
dinand Celine, an anti-Semite and Nazi collaborator, was
published in Holland this week. The society was founded
last year with the stated purpose of making Celine's
writings available in the Dutch language. The journal will
appear twice a year.
Although the society acknowledges Celine's Nazi
sympathies, it regards him as a great writer whose books
deserve to be read. Three of them have already been
translated into Dutch and more are expected to follow.
His Voyage Au Bout de La Nuit has been adapted for the
tage by Belgian playright Guido Lauwaert and will be
.erformed in various Dutch cities in the next few weeks.
ONE POPULAR theory about
profound religiosity holds that it
ia but a step removed from para-
noia. The theory addresses itself
to Calvinism specifically, which
in addition to viewing God as the
super-mechanic of the universe
and as the assayer of all good and
evil, also created mankind in two

and they are destined to
salvation. The second are the
Preterites, and no matter how
hard they try to the contrary,
their fate is perdition.
THIS ENTROPIC view of the
cosmos is projected by no less a
personality than the dis-
tinguished American novelist,
Thomas Pynchon, one of whose
major contributions has been to
point out the paranoid character
common to Calvinist thought.
Of course, Pynchon is correct
that preterition is paranoia by
definition. You can't really ever
know whether your destiny is to
be as a member of the Elect or as
a Preterite. And so, you spend
your whole life praying for the
one and being mortally terrified
of the other. Either way, an
unseen force is at play in _
existence with an eye on pyj

This was certainly a keystone
of the Carter presidency to

America's punishment as if it

Reckoned in these terms, it is
really rather remarkable that he
struggled so mightily to free the
U.S. hostages in Iran until his
last moments in office. For just
as certainly their imprisonment
was another act of divine will -
this one to punish our policy
during the heyday of the Shah.

military action to free the
hostages last April was paranoid

be freed because the action itself
was contrary to God's will

Convention, that God does not

Miami Beach Among Them
Four Jewish Communities Under Study
A study of four American
Jewish communities, has
yielded a conclusion that
the preservation of Jewish
neighborhoods should be a
priority goal of Jewish
communal effort because
such neighborhoods are
closely linked to the con-
tinuity of the Jewish
people, according to a
report by the American
Jewish Committee.
The report also found that
massive changes in the housing
situation stemming from
mounting interest charges and
inflation were having a sig-
nificant impact on Jews of
various income categories, most
of it negative except for wealthy
ENTITLED Jewish Neigh-
borhoods in Transition, the study
was prepared by Dr. Janice Gold-
stein, an urban consultant, one of
a series of occasional "Pertinent
Papers" issued by the AJCom-
mittee domestic affairs depar-
tment, directed by Seymour
Samet. The communities are
South Miami Beach. Beverly-
Fairfax in Los Angeles, Wyn-
nefield in Philadelphia, and
Cleveland Heights, an east side
Cleveland suburb.
The study urged Jewish
leaders to look at their neighbor-
hoods "not just as places where
Jews happen to live, but a
physical habitats, whole
geographic areas hospitable to
the creation and maintenance of
Jewish communal life in the
coming decades."
Noting that Jews have been
traditionally mobile, the study
said that "as their economic and
social position has improved,
they have moved away from first
and second generation neighbor-
hoods, initially to homes in more
affluent city areas, and
ultimately from the central cities
to the suburbs."
But, according to the study,
the entire housing situation has
been changing because of new
factors in the economy, likely to
affect Jewish mobility for years
to come.
interest rates and spiralling rents
have constricted the existing
housing market, and inflation
and the energy crisis have slowed
construction and forced up the
prices of new homes. As trans-
portation costs have risen, more
and more working couples look
for housing closer to their jobs,
real estate values the city and
close-in suburbs escalate sharply,
limiting mobility and choices for
many middle-income Americans-

report continued, "rental unit!

"tentative predictions" it recom-
mended for consideration by
Jewish leaders concerned about
the stabilization or revitalization
of Jewish neighborhoods.
"affluent Jews, unimpeded by
financial considerations or
closeness to jobs, will continue to

Rabin of Israel stressed two chal-

year ahead when he addressed
major American Jewish organi-

U.S. earlier this month.

RABIN, a leader of the op-
position Labor Party in Israel,

matters affecting the Middle

an American military presence in
the region to assert its credibility

of oil to the industrial democ-

Speaking at the foreign policy
symposium of the Anti-Defa-
mation League fo B'nai B'rith
in Washington, Rabin said, "The
Middle East struggle is crucial in
determining the balance between
the free world and the Soviet
bloc. This struggle might decide
the fate of the democratic world."
The "mood today" of the two I
superpowers was projected in the
manner in which the U.S. han-
dled Iran and the Soviet Union
handled Afghanistan, Rabin
contended. According to him,
"There is no doubt the Russians
came up with the upper hand.
The American strategic existence
in Iran was eliminated."
EMPHASIZING that he was/
expressing his own opinion'
Rabin suggested that the U.S.
"take the initiative to bring
changes in the policies" of the
countries that now cooperate
with the Soviet Union. He said
the Soviets were not engaged in
the Middle East on an ideological
basis but in a "sheer power
Rabin was optimistic about the
. progress in relations between
Israel and Egypt. He said that as
long as President Anwar Sadat
leads Egypt, peace will continue.
But, he added, "even a change of
regime in Egypt will not bring a
complete switch in Egyptian
policies that are now prevailing."
He hinted that Israel would
forewarn Sadat of any threat. "If
we know of any danger to the
Sadat regime, he would know it
and would eliminate it," Rabin
He expressed confidence that
,the Reagan Administration "will
|be bound" by the Camp David
'.accords and the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty.
Jordanian option, favored bv his
party, which would have Israel
negotiate with King Hussein of
Jordan to resolve the Palestinian
problem, Rabin said that "for the
sake of peace," Israeli forces
would be withdrawn from "70
percent of the West Bank and
Gaza" to create "one entity a
Jordanian-Palestinian state."
In an address to the United
Jewish Appeal Southwest
Regional Conference in Dallas,
Rabin noted the sacrifices Israel
already has made for peace.

What do you do with a degree
in Religious Studies and Soci-
ology (USF, Magna Cum Laudej
1977), an almost completed
master's degree (in Sociology,
due to be completed in June,
1981) with the thesis being:
"Relationship between Jewish
Camps, Youth Groups and Day
Schools with Jewish Identity"
and you planned to go to Rab-
binical School or maybe even
Cantonal School and in the
meantime, you fell in love and
married and are living in your
hometown with neither a Rab-
binic or Cantorial school
If you are Vikki Brunhild Sil-
verman, 26, you get busy and
work to complete your master's
degree. Then you combine your
love of Judaica with your musical
talent and training (Vikki's been
taking classical guitar lessons
since she was 16). You look
around and realize that there are
few religious school administra-
tive positions available in a
medium-sized Jewish com-
munity. (That was another career
possibility once upon a time.)
Then you say, "Hey. Jewish
music is what I really love. Why
not concentrate on that?"
And that is what Vikki has
done. She has been a substitute
cantor at Congregation A ha vat
Shalom. Dunedin. during the
summer. She also has served as
cantor for services at the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation at the
University of South Florida.
(That was an especially thrilling
moment for Vikki. She was the
first Hillel president at USF and
for a short time she had also
served as the assistant director.)
Soon it will be two years that
she has been studying on a
weekly basis with Cantor William
Hauben. Under his tuteladge and
with continued study in other
areas, Vikki now is confident she
is on the right path in setting her
career goals in the direction her
Jewish music has taken her.
"The times I've been asked to
serve as Cantor have been the
most thrilling to me," she says
with a broad smile. "I really come

Vikki found herself a housewife
(she married Bruce Silverman
one year ago), and suddenly she
had to rethink all the plans she
had for so long been making.
"When I think how lucky I am to
be able to combine so many areas
of my background into a whole
new career possibility. And then,
its an area that 1 really had not
thought about before ... I can't
believe it!" Vikki really loves to
talk about her music and will
gladly do so, if given the op-
She and husband Bruce are
building a house in Lutz but
Vikki would rather talk about the
Jewish and modern folk music
she's working on. about enter-
taining at parties, meetings or
weddings and Bar Mitzvahs. She
loves to sing and here is a chance
to sing Jewish music for Jewish
people to appreciate.
At the Hillel School Vikki
taught music. Judaic studies and
Hebrew during the "79-'80 school
year. She is certified in both He-
brew and Judaic Studies by the
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations and spent one summer
at a UAHC sponsored ulpan at
Haifa University for religious
school teachers. For 10 years she
has been on the religious school
staff at Congregation Schaarai

and eight years as a teacher.

News in Brief
Israel Disappears on Egypt's Latest Tourist Map
NEW YORK "Egypt wel-
comes the world,-' a map dis-
tributed by the Egyptian Tourist
Office in midtown Manhattan
proclaims. But Israel is not
recognized as part of that world,
at least not on that map.
An introductory note on the
reverse side of the map, which
lists tourism information in
Egypt, proudly declares: "You
have only to look at a map to
realize what an important part
Egypt plays in the travel world,
for in order to reach most of the
Middle East, African and Asian
countries it is necessary to pass
through this wonderful country."
But when you turn to the other
side for a look at the map. the
southern part of Israel is shown
but the word "Israel" does not
appear. The map lists Gaza Strip
towns and West Bank cities such
as Bethlehem and Ramallah.
They are labeled as being in
'Palestine." The only Israeli city
listed is Jerusalem which the
Egyptians obviously consider
part of "Palestine."
JERUSALEM Israel would
like to see the United States par-
ticipate in a multinational force
to be set up in Sinai after the final
withdrawal to police sensitive
strategic spots. Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir said this week
that this issue would be high on
the agenda of priorities that
Israel seeks to raise with the new
Reagan Administration.
The final withdrawal date
under Israel's peace accord with
Egypt is April. 1982. Under the
peace treaty package, a multi-
national force must be set up if
the United Nations is not pre-
pared to play the peacekeeping
role. This force would be present
at Sharm El Sheikh, guaran-
teeing free passage through the
Straits of Tiran and along the

ney's Office in Frankfurt has
issued a new warrant for the
arrest of Josef Mengele, the chief
doctor at Auschwitz who is
presently reported to be living in
Uruguay. The warrant, which
includes new evidence against the
man who was called the "angel of
death" by Auschwitz inmates,
replaces a warrant issued in 1959.
Mengele is accused of having
selected concentration camp in-
mates for the gas chamber and of
performing brutal medical ex-
periments upon them. Attorney
General Hans-Eberhard Klein
said his office felt it necessary to
update the charges. The number
of Jews and other prisoners sent
to gas chambers by Mengele
"cannot even be approximated,"
Klein said.
According to a recent report by
Jacobo Timerman in the Israeli
newspaper. Maori v. Mengele is
now working for the Government
of Uruguay as an adviser on how
to torture inmates, especially
Jewish inmates, in the notorious
"Freedom Prions." the main de-
tention center for political
prisoners in Uruguay.

A FRONT PAGE photo in
major newspapers across the
nation last weekend features a
fallen former President, dumped
in his running suit after he
tripped while jogging. The photo
is as heart-rending as it is
alarming. It shows an agonized
man, bewildered and pained,
beyond the hurt of such a minor
accident; suddenly, we wonder
about Mr. Carter's broken collar
bone while skiing prior to this
latest mishap.
The American poet, Emily
Dickinson, who lived in the
heartland of New England
Puritanism, wrote: "Ruin is
formal, devil's work,/ Con-
secutive and slow / Fail in an
instant no man did,/ Slipping

The front page photo shows
that in "crash's law" the former
President discovers a predestined
imperative to obey. But the fall is
more than an accident. It is a
symbol of destiny, the paranoid
view of an entropic universe.
Ben Gallob
(JTA) The U.S.Supreme
Court in a 7-2 decision ruled
that a former Ukrainian
guard at the Treblinka
concentration camp in
Poland during World War
II had violated U.S. law in
his application for United
States citizenship almost
11 years ago and he is no
longer a U.S. citizen.
As result of the decision in the
first case of an alledged Nazi war
criminal ever aired before the Su-
preme Court, Feodor Federenko,
73, of Miami Beach, faces
deportation proceedings. There
was no immediate indication
when the proceedings will begin
or to where he would be deported.
THE CASE before the court
was unusual in various aspects.
It was the only case argued
before the nation's highest
tribunal by Benjamin Civiletti in
his capacity as Attorney General.
It also established precedents
that would affect future cases
dealing with "material
representation" of facts by
would-be citizens.
The 27-page majority decision
was written by Associate Justice
Thurgood Marshall, and it was
joined by Justices William
Brennan, Potter Stewart, Lewis
Powell, and William Rehnquist.
Chief Justice Warren Burger
concurred in the majority opinion
and Justice Harry Blackmun
approved in a concurring opinion.
Dissenting from the opinion
were Associate Justices Byron
White and John Stevens who
each gave separate opinions.
Former Rep. Elizabeth Holtz-
man (D., N.Y.), who was chair-
person of the House Judiciary
Sub-committee that urged the
prosecution of Federenko by the
U.S. Department of Justice,
hailed the court's decision. "It is
a great triumph, a landmark
decision," she told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. "It will be
terribly important in allowing the
prosecution against the remain-
der of the alledged nazi war
criminals in our country."
HOLTZMAN, who is now a
visiting professor at the
Graduate School of Public
Administration at New York
University, said that the decision
shows "that if this effort had
started long ago or even in
response to my concern in 1974
we would be much further
along than we are now in these
Rep. Hamilton Fish (R., N.Y.),
also a member of the Judiciary
Committee, told the JTA that the
court decision "certainly makes

potential purchasers and renters
of housing in 'gentrifying' neigh-
borhoods." Gentrifying refers to
a growing movement by well-to-
do Americans to rent or purchase
deteriorating but still sound
housing stock and having such
housing renovated.
The study also predicted that
the plight of elderly, low and
moderate income Jews will be es-
pecially troublesome. "Perhaps
as many as a half million will
need some financial and housing
counseling assistance in finding
and maintaining suitable retire-
ment housing." according to the
THE STUDY also predicted
that it also would be hard for

children "the baby boom

hoods "with affordable housing

close-in suburbs or the center city
and either send their children to
Jewish day schools or work to
improve the neighborhood public
schools or both.''
and the some 260 cases under
Federenko, born in the Ukraine
in 1907, was an armed guard at
Treblinka at which it was esti-
mated some 800,000 Jews and
others were killed. He was
charged by the U.S. government
with participating in the beating
and snooting of Jewish prisoners
while at the camp from 1942-43.
Federenko came to the U.S. in
1949 under the Displaced Persons
Act and applied for citizenship in
1970 in New Haven, Conn.
against Federenko in August,
1977, in the U.S. District Court in
Miami, he was accused of having
concealed in his application for
citizenship that he was an armed
guard at Treblinka and engaged
alledgedly in atrocities against
prisoners. 1'he district court
ruled, however, that his service at
Treblinka was "involuntary" and
that the U.S. government had
not proven that he had commit-
ted war crimes.
Even if he had concealed the
facts, the court held, Federenko's
age and his good record since
coming to the U.S. constituted
equitable conditions that should
allow him to retain his citizen-
The Fifth Circuit Court of Ap-
peals in New Orleans, however,
decided on June 28, 1979 that the
evidence was material and in

held that the court in Miami had

Israel's New Minister
Unfolds Economic Plan
Israel's newly appointed
Finance Minister, Yoram
Aridor, is expected to in-
troduce an economic pro-
gram to slow the steady de-
valuation of the Shekel,
improve labor relations, en-
courage long-term invest-
ments and savings by the
public and, hopefully,
reduce the annual inflation
rate, now at a record 130
percent-plus to a more
manageable double digit
Much of Aridor's program was
recommended to his predecessor,
Yigal Hurwitz. in an economic
plan paper submitted a month
ago, close associates of the new
Finance Minister told reporters.
He is expected to continue
Hurwitz's policy of slashing gov-
ernment spending which he con-
siders absolutely essential if in-
flation is to be contained. That
proved to be Hurwitz's most
formidable obstacle. He achieved
only limited success and resigned

up the Shekel by offering the
public foreign currency saving
schemes. A stronger Shekel
would have adverse effects on
exports which rose substantially
during Hurwitz's regime, his
most notable achievement.

recommend additional incentives
and compensation to exporters
who find it hard to market their
goods abroad without a cheap
Aridor will make wage and
salary increases dependent
entirely on increased produc-
tivity. He believes this formula
would lead to labor peace by
cushioning wage-earners against
inflation and offering them
tangible inducement to improve
productivity and at the same
time, would peg cost-of-living in-
crements to 100 percent of the
price index and pay them
monthly instead of quarterly. At

Thus, he believes, the economy

reduction by a one-time large in-
crease in the value-added tax

ter also wants to make govern-
ment saving schemes more at-
tractive to investors as a means

Gift Won't Influence Washington U.
The American Jewish Committee has been
assured by University of Washington officials
that their recently authorized exchange program
with Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz University
includes a viable, non-discriminatory clause that,
if not adhered to, would nullify the agreement be-
tween the two universities.
According to Arthur Abramson, AJC Seattle
area director, "In discussions with University of
Washington officials, a clause was included that
Erohibits the Saudis from discrimination on the
asis of race, sex, age, religion, and / or national
origin. An 'oversight committee' has been set up
to insure that all clauses of the contract are
adhered to, although we would have preferred
that individuals from outside the University's
medical school structure were included as mem-
bers of this committee."
In a television interview in New York, Leon
Dulzin, chairman of the Executives of the Jewish
Agency and the World Zionist Organization, has
emphasized that the number of Yordim in the
United States, when viewed in the proper per-
spective, was neither abnormal nor frightening.
Dulzin said there are some 270,000 Yordim in the
United States.
"Wherever there is a great deal of immigration,
there is emigration," Dulzin pointed out. He cited
the experience of the United States during the
years 1908-1928 which marked the period of the
great wave of immigration to America. During
these years, Dulzin said, "approximately 28
percent left the United States for other nations.
In contrast to this percentage of emigration from
America, less than 10 percent of its population of
3.250,000 left Israel during the 33 years of Israeli
The American Jewish Congress has hailed a

Morton Bunis, president of the New Jersey

The Jewish community has generally failed to
provide support services to help working mothers
cope with the daily pressures of family and jobs,
according to a report on a pilot study issued by
the American Jewish Committee.
In a foreword to Working and Mothering, a
study of Jewish working women with large
families, in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan
area, Yehuda Rosenman, director of the AJC's
National Jewish Family Center, writes that "The
feeling of isolation, of not being able to depend on
community resources, disappointing as it was for
women who took parenthood for granted, is even
more serious today, when well educated women
are weighing whether to have children at all."
Most of the women studied were between the
ages of 40 and 60, less than 10 percent had been
divorced, and all of them, while having "demand-
ing" professional or managerial positions, raised
at least three children.
A major revision of the Israeli welfare system's
aid to young adults completing army service,
which would extend a IL 1 million loan to eligible
recipients, was one of many proposals put forth at
an international conference on "Social Policy
Evaluation: Health. Education and Welfare,"
organized by Tel Aviv University's Pinhas Sapir
Center for Development.
The revision plan, submitted by experts at Tel
Aviv University's Sapir Center for Development,
is designed to replace existing forms of aid to
such young adults, including current loans to
young couples seeking to buy apartments, or aid
to university students.
Traditional intelligence teats fail to evaluate
millions of the world's children fairly because
they are based on what a child knows and are not
a measure of how much a child is capable of
There is no greater handicap that children must
overcome than to be written off as "uneducabie,"
"retarded," or as "slow learners." In this Inter-
national Year for the Disabled Person, three of
the world's largest organizations devoted to pro-
tecting the rights and advancing the wall-being of
children have joined to sponsor a day-long
seminar of educators and developmental psy-
chologists devoted to the theories and techniques
of Dr. Reuven Feuerstein whose work Dr.
Nicholas Hobbs, professor of preventive medicine
and of psychology at Vanderbilt University,
describee as "teaching intelligence."
The Seminar will take place Fab. 18 at Ford-
ham University in New York.

THE YEAR Edward Rudman,
the Senator's father was born in
Bangor in 1897, 12 men in
Nashua founded the Temple Beth
Abraham Congregation. When
Edward came to Nashua the
town had 35 Jewish families in a
general population of 30,000.
Since then, with the influx of
electronics industries, the general
population has grown to 300
families, many of whose bread-
winners are engineers in the new

As the interview was ending, a
reporter remarked to the
Senator's wife that the Rudman
saga was "unbelievable" from
an immigrant who had no knowl-
edge of English to a U.S. Senator
in three generations. Hearing
this, the Senator called out:
"Only in America, as Harry
Golden would say." There was a
general nodding of agreement.
