Sarasota Reform rabbi re-
ported that a Christian col-
league had shown him a
copy of a letter sent to all
Christian clergymen in the
Sarasota area inviting them
to attend a special event or-
ganized to induce Jews to
convert to Christianity.
The disclosure was made by
Rabbi Ahron Opher in his Temple
Emanuel bulletin and reprinted
in the Sarasota Chronicle, the
publication of the Sarasota
Jewish Federation.
Opher reported that the
message had been sent by Dr.
Robert Shamsey, a missionary to
Jews, for the event to be held on
Feb. 17 in the Sarasota Exhibi-
tion Hall.
IN A circular letter, Opher
wrote, Shamsey had urged the
recipient Christian ministers "to
publicize their proselytizing proj-
ect in their churches to urge their
parishers to bring their Jewish
neighbors to that performance in
order that they be persuaded to
accept Jesus as the Messiah."
Opher reported that Shamsey
sent to the Christian clergy,
along with the invitation, a de-
scription of an organization
"which he heads and calls 'Hear
O Israel,' whose purpose it is to
disguise Christian proselytizing-

In 1961, a group of young
people visited Europe and Israel
to see for themselves what UJA
dollars were accomplishing
overseas. This effort was later to
i be called the first Young
Leadership Mission.
For many participants, the
Hashiveynu Mission was their
first visit to Israel. Involvement
of "first-timers" to broaden and
deepen American Jewish com-
mitment to the world Jewish
community is a primary Cabinet
goal, and a philosopy reflected by
the name of the mission itself.
"Hashiveynu" is a Hebrew
word, part of the traditional
prayer that is spoken in the
synagogue when the Torah is
returned to the Ark. It has come
to represent an entire movement
"in Jewish life.
Poetically translated, it means
"renew our days as of old."
Jewish renewal the restoration
of tradition, history and culture
has become a way of life for
the men of the Cabinet. The
"Hashiveynu" mission itinerary
included, among other activities.
a "Ceremony of Renewal" at the
Western Wall, a "Rededication
to Jewish Ideals" on Masada.
and the inauguration of the
Young Leadership Cabinet

Park near Jerusalem.
Future Young Leadership
missions will continue to expand
the forest with each visit.
Missions already are planned for
the Spring, Summer and Fall of
Conceived in the early 1960s to
train, involve and develop young
men 25 to 40 years of age for
service to the Jewish community,
the Cabinet was founded on the
premise that the UJA's ongoing
responsibility as the primary
American fundraising agency for
the Jewish people of Israel and
throughout the world requires a
broadly based leaership pool.
Missions to Israel are only one
facet of the Cabinet's wide-
ranging programs. A fun-
damental commitment made by
every Cabinet member is to train
themselves to become a "Jewish
resource." Each month members
receive a newly published book
that deals with some important
aspect of Jewish life. Recent
mailings have dealt with such
diverse topics as the Palestinian
question. the Holocaust.

Opher reported that, first, he
took exception to the "dis-
honesty in disguising a Christian
program in Jewish terminology
and symbols, thereby intending
to mislead Jewish audiences into
thinking that it is a Jewish radio
program, sponsored by a Jewish
organization called by a Jewish
name which is the watchword of
our faith: Hear 0 Israel."
He added he told Shamsey that
"the same deception" was in-
volved in calling the Exhibition
Hall program "The Liberated
Wailing Wall, so that Jews may
be won over in a non-threatening
atmosphere' "

was an expression of resentment
"at this person's arrogrance in
claiming that he possessed the
only access to God's truth and
denying other religious folk the
right to their faith.
Opher added that "we Jews
have been exposed to, often
abused by, and sometimes
amused by, those who claim to
have the only key to Heaven,
seeking to persuade us or to
bludgeon us into their brand of
salvation but we will always heed
the teaching of our prophets: Let
all men walk in the path of their
tradition and we will cleave to our
faith and live by the covenant of
our fathers."
The issue of the Chronicle
which reprinted Ophers report
carried an editorial comment that
"because Federation condemns
what Robert Shamsey stands for,
but condones his right to freedom
of speech, we publicize his acti-
vities and Rabbi Ophers objec A

The Baker's Dozen at JCC
Sponsored by The Jewish
| Community Center on March 16,
7:30 p.m.
Founded on Independence
Day. 1947, the Baker's Dozen has
maintained its reputation for 30
years as one of the finest
collegiate singing groups in the
nation, and has established itself
as an indispensable part of the
Yale community. Maintaining
itself through an annual influx of
freshmen, the Baker's Dozen
offers its members, through long
hours of practice, the opportunity
to participate in a musical
Organization which is amateur in
spirit and enthusiasm, yet truly
professional in caliber of per-
formance. What sets the Baker's
Dozen apart from the other high
quality acappella singing groups
of its type is the group's un-
matched ability to entertain an
audience. The group prides itself
on its showmanship, projecting
enjoyment and occasional
comedy to its audience while
maintaining the Baker's Dozen
tradition of musical excellence.
The Baker's Dozen performs in
many different settings, ranging
from intercollegiate singing
group competitions in Carnegie
Hall to impromptu concerts
under the palms on our annual
tours to the Florida Keys.
Several times each semester we
lake short tours to major cities,
including Boston, New York,
Philadelphia, and Washington,
D.C. The vast majority of our
concerts are performed at hotels
und country clubs, prep schools
and colleges, private parties, and
Yale alumni functions. Our
repertoire is as large as it is
varied; at any given time, the
BD's have 40 50 songs prepared,
including traditional, comic, jazz
and swing, folk, and con-
temporary numbers, as well as
show tunes and Yale favorites.
Thus we are able to adjust our
concert program to please any
audience, whether in prep
schools, hotels, or exclusive
clubs. All of our numbers have
been arranged by former or

In addition, Haas will be the
special guest at WUSF Radios
annual Open House from 7 to 9
p.m. Monday, Feb. 23 when the
entire radio staff welcomes
listeners and their guests to a
tour of the station facilities.
Haas' good music adventures
are a sampling of music,
musicianship and musicians,
both traditional and innovative,
they are laden with philisophical
lore, literature, art, and anec-
dotes on the personality and
whimsy of composers, conductors
and performers, many of which
are his friends.
A different facet of musk is
examined on each program by the
eminent musicologist Haas, s
pianist of international repute.
The series has received many
honors, including the Emmy, the
George Foster Peabody Award
and the "TV-Radio Mirror" gold
On his program, he has
parlayed his format of good
music recordings and informative
talk sandwiched between the
second movement of Beethoven's
Pathetique Sonata, which be
plays on the piano himself, into
radio programming he thinks is
unique in the world.
The choices aren't always
classical music. "I love all kinds
of music," Haas says. "I always
felt the Beatles, for instance,
were excellent musicians. Then-
imitators get me down."
Cite fan considers him a
national treasure, an American
rarity blessed with three gifts
remarkable in their coincidence:
musical taste and techniques, a
learned Renaissance mind, and
an ability to sell both to a mass
Haas does his daily work with
a lot of preparation and no script.
He plots most of his dialogue
driving to work.
An admittedly friendly fellow,
Haas tapes his programs in a
studio without a live audience, so
appreciates the fan mail he
receives from around the world.
Because of the vast amount of
mail he receives from the Tampa
Bay area, he has planned the
special piano recitals here.
"Adventures in Good Music"
was bom in 1959 at WJR radio in
Detroit, and became syndicated
in 1969. Today, the series is
syndicated nationally over 80
stations, and heard world-wide
over 320 stations of the American
Forces Radio and Television
Service, thus reaching millions of
daily listeners.
Karl Haas was born on the
shores of the Rhine in Southwest
Germany. He studied piano
composition, conducting and art
history at the Conservatory of
Mannheim, and the University of
Heidelburg. i
Haas came to the U.S. in 1936
to join the faculty of the Netzorg
School of Piano, pursuing his
own studies with the famed Artur
Schnable, and at Wayne State
University of Detroit. He is the
recipient of six honorary doc-
torates in music, fine arts, and
humanities, awarded by various
American universities and
colleges. \

Harris and Ami Hiraborn report that their recent activities
included a night at the skating rink and a January planning
meeting that was followed by some uproariously fun game
playing. Then just last week they participated in a regional
Disney Day. Half of the group went to Disney World while the
other half went to a Kadima Convention being held in
Jacksonville that same weekend.
From USY (the older youth group) our report comes from
Brian Harris and Ilene Zalkin. Two recent meetings were held at
Tampa Bowling Lanes, followed by a pizza party at Tampa
Skating Rink. Then in Mid-January, Steve Fisch, Bruce Zalkin,
Esther Shear, along with Brian and Ilene. attended a USY
Convention in Orlando for a weekend. This convention was also
-attended by youth group members from Orlando, Lakeland,
Seminole, Clearwater, and other Tampa youth groups.
Well, it's obvious that our Jewish youth are staying suby it
all sounds terrific!
This past week the Bay Horizons Chapter of Women's
American ORT had a fascinating speaker and delicious luncheon
at the home of Virginia Gordimer. Glenda Pender from the
Women's Survival Center was the guest speaker. She discussed
the growing dependence on "safe" prescription drugs and how
the REFILL PROGRAM at the Center is dealing with this
pertinent problem. This was a truly fascinating program and
most enjoyable luncheon meeting.
Meet Mel and Rose Rudolph who moved to the Carrollwood
area of town this past September. Mel is originally from Chicago
and Rose is originally from Iowa. Mel was in the police
department of Chicago for 12 years. Then for 3'/i years, he and
Rose owned a nightclub in Clinton, Iowa. They moved back to
Chicago briefly before moving to Tampa for the beautiful
weather and easy life style. Right now Mel is semi-retired and he
and Rose are enjoying traveling around the state and they love
to browse through flae markets. Next month they will celebrate
their 30th wedding anniversary. The Rudolphs have three
children Irwin who lives in Tampa with his wife Candy and
works for Color Tile; Laura Burke who lives in Illinois with her
husband Jim and is a manager for a credit corporation, and
Jeffry. who is a junior at Leto High School. Our new family is a

Number 8

Artur Teitelbaum, Regional Director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith will address the
community Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish
Community Center. Speaking on Anti-Semitism and
its rise in Florida, the United States and throughout
the world, Mr. Teitelbaum has information about
which we should all be aware.
I Reading the daily headlines, we know that this is a
"clear and present danger" to each and every one of
us. Don't say, "I didn't know," or "Why didn't
someone explain what was happening." This will be
an evening of explanation and information.
I Sponsored by the Community Relations Committee
of Tampa Jewish Federation and Tampa Lodge 1044
of B'nai B'rith, this evening is just the type of thing
our Jewish communities need. Don't miss it.
A Powerful Antidote
Our Front Page story from Sarasota underscores for those of
us who forget from time to time the incredible extent of the
chutzpah that energizes too many Christian clergymen into
believing that they are so far superior to Jews that they have the
right to try to convert them.
This is an order of primitive madness manifest in pre-civilized
cultures that impelled sons to murder their fathers in the name
of family leadership.
Our story reports the usual deceptions of missionaries, who
disguise their work behind "good deeds" merely intended to
' insUuck'' Jbw Mi^he fulfillment of .their Jewish destiny.
Lt seems.Lp us that the bottom line in all of this is for Jews not
to need this kind of ''instruction." The way to achieve that kind
of immunity is to be fortified by Jewish instruction of our own to
begin with. This is, of course, a dictum going back to the daily
prayer, VAhavta "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God. .
It is a prayer enjoining us to instill this love of Judaism into
the hearts of all our children.
It is a dictum that is good for its own sake. And, as we say, as
the best antidote against those incredible chutzpah'niks.
Time Bomb Ticks Away
A time bomb is ticking away in the still delicate Israeli-
Egyptian relations which could blow up the peace treaty so care-
fully worked out by the two countries with the help of the United
States. This is the U.S. commitment to set up a multinational
force to police the Sinai after Israel's final withdrawal, scheduled
for April, 1982.
Prime Minister Manachem Begin recently pointed out that '
the U.S. commitment for the force was "an integral part of the
peace treaty." Begin refused to explain, saying an interpretation
was unnecessary. But he was clearly implying, what some
Israeli officials have threatened publicly, not to go through with
the final withdrawal if the multinational force is not in place.
Creating such a force is not an easy matter. It appears
unlikely that it can be done through the auspices of the United
Nations as originally envisioned. The Arab rejectionist states
still have a majority of support behind them at the UN in their
efforts to wreck the Camp David process. The Soviet Union is
certain to veto any attempt by the U.S. to have the Security
Council create such a force. So the U.S. must find the members
of the force itself.
That this is a difficult task explains why first the Carter Ad-
ministration and now apparently the Reagan Administration
have put off acting on the problem.
But it won't go away, and April, 1982 is not that far off. The
Begin government is pressing Washington for action, and
should the Labor Party win the June 30 election it is doubtful
they would be any less reluctant to leave the Sinai without an
international force in place.
The time to begin working on creating this force is now, before ,
the situation has time to develop into a crisis.
12th Century Jew Became Bishop |
PARIS (JTA) Catholic sources here recalled
that there is only one other known instance, besides that
of Msgr. Jean-Marie Lustiger, of a converted Jew
becoming Archbishop with the rank of Cardinal. Lustiger
will be officially elevated to the rank of Cardinal at the
next Consistory presided over by Pope John Paul II.
The Catholic church has had several Cardinals of
Jewish origin but only one other, Cardinal Pietro Pier-
leoni, who was born a Jew and later became a Catholic
convert. Pierleoni was baptized when he was 14, just like
Lustiger, and appointed Cardinal by Pope Honorius II in
elections. By then, he reasons,
Menachem Begin will be out of
power, and Shimon Peres will be
the new Prime Minister.
Austria's Chancellor Bruno
Kreisky, the turncoat Jew and
PLO rug merchant with whom
ISadat visited in Vienna over the
'weekend, agrees, adding his own
predictable belief that Begin
doesn't really want peace in the
Middle East anyway, certainly
not in the same way that sweet
old Sadat does.
The one wrinkle in the Sadat
scheme is that Peres is all for
pursuing the feasibility of a
Jordanian option so far as the
West Bank and Gaza are con-
cerned. Peres reasons that since
Jordan is, in effect, the only "real
Palestine" reckoned by today's
political realities, then a primary
role for the Jordanians in the bi-
lateral autonomy negotiations is
SADAT DOESN'T think so

he has a more obscure political
purpose. In any case, Hussein

Third World Aims to Muzzle Free Press
Scarcely noticed in this land of
press freedom while the
presidential election sweepstakes
were conducted was the big news
that the Soviet and Third World

five weeks and bringing some
2,000 delegates from 154 nations

While delgates from the free

Shamir in Washington
To Clarify Settlements
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir has flatly rejected
Regan Administration ob-
jections to Jewish settle-
ments on the West Bank.
He told a student audience
at Bar Ilan University that
Israel would not have
signed the peace treaty
with Egypt or the Camp
David accords if they had
mentioned any halt to
Jewish settlements in the
occupied territories.
SHAMIR SAID repeated
mention had been made during
the Camp David talks for the
need for a free, strong and
defensible Israel, and this was
impossible if Israel were forced to
return to the 1967 borders. "Our
security calls for an Israeli
presence in the whole of the Land
>f Israel, and this includes
Judaea, Samaria and the Gaza
Strip," he said.
Shamir said that at his very
first meeting with American
officials during his visit to Wash-
ington he would lay great stress
on Israel's need to ensure the

country's security and ability to

conditions. These meetings occur
this week. He will meet with
Secretary of State Haig on
The Foreign Minister said
there might be room for debate
on the timing of the siting of
individual settlements, but not
the peed for defensive positions,
which included civilian settle-
ments. "Israel never agreed to
halt settlements. There is no
mention of it in the peace treaty.
Quite the opposite Israel
would nver have agreed to sign
the peace treaty if we had not
been sure of our right to settle
Jews anywhere in the historic
land of Israel."
MOSHE ARENS, chairman
of the Knesset Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee, said the
Administration's statement was
an "unpleasant surprise." But
Israel, he added, should not be
too hasty in drawing conclusions.
He noted President Reagan's
statements before, during and
after the elections to the effect
that West Bank settlements were
not illegal. "We are now hearing
a different tune, but it is not yet
certain whether there is a dif-
ferent policy," he told a radio
interviewer," if so, that would be
serious and unpleasant."
As a proponent of massive
Jewish settlement on the West
Bank, Arens said: "For myself,
saying settlements are an ob-
stacle to peace is like saying
Israel itself if an obstacle to
peace." He said that though
former President Carter had been
against settlements, he was fully
aware of Israel's strong views in
their favor and still went ahead
with the Camp David process.
"Israel needs defense and
security on the West Bank, and
that is impossible without
civilian settlements," Arens

Egypt Prodded
To Resume Autonomy Negotiations
Interior Minister Yosef
Burg, Israel's chief
negotiator in the autonomy
talks, has sharply prodded
Egypt to resume the talks
as soon as possible.
In a statement released
by the government press
office, Burg stressed that
Israel was ready to do so at
any time and reminded the
Egyptians that the two
countries are committed
under the Camp David
accords to negotiate "con-
tinuously and in good
faith" in order to reach
agreement for autonomy or
the West Bank and Gaza
Strip "at the earliest pos-
sible date."
"A PARTY who does not fulfill
his commitment to negotiate
brings down upon himself the
suspicion that he will not be
scrupulous in fufilling other
commitments which he has
undertaken." Burg said. He
stressed that Israel was not
responsible for the various cut-
offs and delays in the negotiating
process which was virtually
suspended by Cairo last May. "If
there is no negotiation there is
certainly no chance of reaching
agreement." Burg said.
His statement was issued in
the wake of leaked reports of
confidential cables from Israeli
Ambassador Eliahu Ben Elissar
in Cairo to the Foreign Ministry
of a meeting he had with

President Anwar Sadat.
According to the reports, Sadat
Tiad expressed some reluctance to
resume the negotiations and
questioned whether resumption
was practical at this time.
Burg said that if Egypt or the
U.S., the third party to the
negotiations, were delaying
resumption pending the Israeli
elections this spring, that would
be an outright contravention of
the Camp David agreements. "It
is impossible to demand of Israel
that it carry out is commitments
under Camp David in full while
other parties carry out their part
only selectively,"
THAT REMARK was seen as
a hint that Israel might review its
commitment to complete its with-
drawal from Sinai by April, 1982
if there was no satisfactory
progress in the autonomy
negotiations. Observers saw
some irony in the fact that Israel
appears now to insist on
"linkage" between the im-
plementation of the terms of its
peace treaty with Egypt and the
progress of autonomy.
Burg's tough words did not
represent an official position of
the government, however. His
statement was released without
prior consultation with Foreign

Mrs. Robert Scott Hampton
On Sunday, Feb. 15 Laura
Katherine Curphey, Daughter of
Lawrence and Dolores Curphey,
became the bride of Robert Scott
Hampton, son of James and
Barbara Hampton, of Dunedin.
The ceremony wbs at Davis
Islands Community Church with
Reverend J. Bruce My rick of-
ficiating. Following the
ceremony, the reception was held
at Congregation Schaarai Zedek.
In the bridal party, Maid of
honor was Carol Creash; Vickii

were bridesmaids. Best Man was

Judaism was included among
the three major religions in the
area but Jewish holidays were
not listed with the Christian and
Islamic holidays.
ACCORDING to an article in
the Jan. 26 issue of the Detroit
Federation of Teachers news-
paper, Yehiel first raised her
objections with the administra-
tion of the Detroit Public Schools
Region 6.
Based on her complaint and
those of other Jewish teachers,
region superintendent Seymour
Gretchko had the guide with-
drawn. Yehiel then took the issue
to Detroit's central administra-
tion. After a review of the guide
and the objections, Dr. Marvin
Greene, assistant superintendent
for curriculum, and other ad-
ministrators recommended that
the guide be withdrawn.
"In its place," Greene told the
Detroit teachers' newspaper, "we
are recommending that a writing
team, independent of special
interest groups, utilizing the
services of consultants, develop a
guide that will include the
cultural and historical
development of the various
ethnic groups in the Middle East.
"WE- ARE aware that at the
middle and senior high level the
course might have to be taught in
the context of controversial
issues. We would hope that our
students would be well-informed
and yet not captives of any single
disputed point of view."
Greene was not immediately
available for comment, and his
office could not say whether the
guide had already been with-
drawn from Detroit schools.
Yehiel was quoted by the Detroit
teachers' newspaper as saying
that the guide provided valuable
information for students learning
about peoples from Arab lands.
But she said it was insensitive in
its approach to Israel and the
Jewish people.
The Detroit News reported
that the author of the guide and
the leaders of Detroit's Arab
community were upset by the
executive director of the Arab-
Chaldean Social Services Council,
wrote the guide and said she was
shocked that she had not been
notified of the objection of given
a chance to discuss possible
Arab leaders here were out-
spoken about the recom-
mendation to remove the guide
and called for letter-writing
campaigns and bringing the issue
to the attention of the American

ISRAEL "meets the basic

the occupied territories," the
report said. "Freedom of

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Friday. February^
Pope Meets With Chief Rabbi
John Paul II and the Chief
Rabbi of Rome, Elio Toaff,
have met in what the
Jewish community offi-
cially termed "an event o!
historical import" anc
which most observers saw
as a calculated effort by the
Vatican to enhance its re-
lations with the Jewish
community which, gen-
erally, have been good.
The encounter took place in a
building adjacent to the Church'
of San Carlo Ai Catinari on the
Piazza Cairoli, in the heart of the
Unman ghetto, the oldest in
Europe. The Pontiff was ac-
companied by Cardinal Ugo
Poletti and Msgr. Jorge Mejia,
Secretary of The Vatican
Secretariate for Religious
Relations with the Jews. Toaff
had with him Assistant Chief
Rabbi Alberto Piattelli and a
small delegation representing
Rome's Jewish community.
IT WAS the first time in the
2,000 years of variegated
relations between the Church of
Rome and the Jewish community
that a chief rabbi of the city has
accepted an invitation to meet
with a Pope. Although Rome's
Jews never suffered pogroms or
similar persecutions, they have
been, in past centuries, subjected
to many levels of humiliation,
including forced attendance at
sermons aimed at their con-
version in the very church
compound that was the scene of
the meeting.
Just two months ago, the
Pope's second Encyclical dealing
witn distortions or justice in the
modern world, drew a sharp
reaction from Jewish circles
because of its reference to the
Biblical injunction. "An eye for
an eye, a tooth for a tooth,'' as
the- form of distortion of justice"
ut the time of Jesus.
The Pope's decision to meet
with the Chief Rabbi of Rome and
the simultaneous publication in
he Vatican newspaper
,'Ossrri ature Romano of an
ditorial entitled "Dives In
' lisericonlia: An Encyclical for
hiristians and Jews'' indicated
i an oblique way a desire to
. Milage the feelings of Jews who

i.umed chancellor, has become

Acknowledged as the person
most responsible for the quick
financial growth and academic
uccess of this, the nation's first
ewish-sponsored, nonsectarian
university, it is estimated he has
raised several hundred million
dollars for the institution that
opened in 1948 with a handful of
old buildings, 107 students and a
laculty of 13.
Today, its faculty exceeds 400,
its student population is ap-
proximately 3,500, and its
physical plant includes more than
M0 buildings set on 270 acres. It is
now ranked among the toe

in the country, as well.

lege campuses in America an<
felt offended by the earlier
Encyclical which by the very
nature of an Encyclical, cannot
be rewritten.
TOAFF told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency later that
"This was a first contact. To
evaluate its impact, we will have
to wait for future developments."
That cautious appraisal was
shared by others in the Jewish
community who had hoped the
Pople would make some specific
apologetic reference to past
relations between the Church and
the Jewish community.
The Pope, however, limited his i
comments to generalities. He
said in effect that it was good for
mutlal relations to emphasize the
present and above all the future.
He presented Toaff with a silver
Vatican medal and the other
members with copper medals.
He spoke of the Holocaust,
the great sufferings of the Jews,
the common religious heritage
that unites Catholics and Jews
and on themes touched by the
rabbi in his speech which stressed
the issues on which Catholics and
Jews are united.
"THERE ARE manifold ele-
ments we hold in common in the
struggle we are forced to conduct
in the world surrounding us."
Toaff said, "a struggle for the
affirmation of the dignity of man,
intended as a mirror of the Divine
image, a struggle for the right to
life from its very first conception,
recognizing the right to give or
take it away only to God. "
That reference by Toaff to the
common position taken by
Catholics and Jews, at least the
Orthodox, against abortion was
evidently appreciated by the
Pope, especially as the right of
choice in this matter has become
a heated political issue in Italy.
Toaff also spoke of a common
"struggle for the affirmation of
the values of the family, its unity
and its morality, a struggle
against the plague ot drugs which
kill the weak and rootless, and a
struggle for the realization of a
society that is more just, where
all can share those goods that
God has conceded to man .
And finally, the struggle for the
rights of man and his religious
A STATEMENT issued after
the meeting by the Rome Jewish
Community declared: "In the
moment in which a Roman
Pontiff meets the Chief Rabbi of
Rome and representatives of the
Roman Jewish community near
the area which for over 2,000
years witnessed infinite pain and
both ancient and recent mour-
ning, the Jews of Rome recognize
this encounter as an event of
historical import and the real
point of departure for a new
chapter in the relations of the
great monotheistic religions."
Begin Pleased By
Sadat, But PLO

Premier Menachem Begin said
that he was pleased by President
Anwar Sadat's solid commitment
to the Camp David process,
expressed in his speech to the
Parliament of Europe in
Luxembourg. But he was less

Israel's Peace Sacrifice is Huge
Continued from Page 4
Indeed intransigent? Since 1968,
Israel has invested $17 billion in
the Sinai. Airfields, bases and in-
frastructure facilities she has
already ceded or will be ceding in
the final stages of the give-away
alune are valued at $10 billion.
Roads and settlements com-
posing these facilities were con-
structed at a cost of $2 billion.
Then there are the oil fields.
Alone, these are valued at $5
billion, while, for example,
Israel's staggering 130 percent
inflation rate in 1980, much more
costly to her economy than this,
Ls largely if not entirely the result
of the economic loss she has had
to sustain because of returning
the oil fields to Egypt with little
or no quid pro quo.
Giving up the Sinai has also
resulted in the need to redeploy
Israel's Defense Forces. It is esti-
mated, reckoned in fiscal terms of
1979, when the pound was still
the official currency, that IDF re-
deployment in the Ngev would
cost the country some S4.4
Nor does the highly-touted
U.S. role as underwriter come
close to contributing more than
just a fraction of the total cost of
redeployment. U.S. role or not,
the brunt of the burden lies on
Israel's saving shoulders about
which no one has yet to speak a
grateful word in her behalf, least
of all Kgypt.
FROM A military point of
view, the cost to Israel is equally
staggering maybe more so. To
begin with, the Negev is strategi-
cally inferior to the Sinai as a
base for IDF installations. This
can be reckoned in the following

until now most of the Israel Air
Force's available air space for
training and operating its fighter
and other military craft. Consider
the incredible speeds of these
craft in terms of the narrowness
of Israel's boundaries even at
their widest point in the Negev,
and by comparison with the far

times in the past to protect her

siderably weakened military and

northern Sinai and the Gaza

IF THE oil field give-away
with essentially no quid pro quo
means a capital outlay loss of $5
billion to Israel plus a resulting
staggering inflation rate based on
the spiralling cost of the oil she
must now buy from Egypt, there
are other considerations as well.
The Alma field, developed by
Israel, supplied some 30,000
barrels of oil a day, or 20 percent
of the country'8 domestic con-
sumption. Fully developed,
Alma, together with the other
Sinai Fields, would have taken
care of all of Israel's oil needs. At
a time when other countries
throughout the world are seeking
to reduce their dependence on
foreign sources of energy, Israel
has thus relinquished the op-
portunity to be energy-
Furthermore, the sacrifice is

terms of the fact that political

compells her to pay far over

As a Final note, it is worth ob-
serving that by contrast with
Israel's ill-fortune the return of
the Sinai to Egypt has meant,
according to Foriegn Minister
Kamal Hassan Ali, renewed and
increasing Suez Canal revenues,
oil field profits, and the explora-
tion of the Sinai's coal and mag
nesiujn resources.
Still, Israel considers the Sinai-
for-peace arrangement worth-
while, at the same time that
Egypt encourages the interna-
tional view that Israel has more
to gain by it than Egypt. The
result is the current Sadat
maneuver: stall the peace talks
until a Begin defeat. Thereafter,
Israel can be pressed for more

hoped that the Reaganites have

France, Egypt in Agreement
On Eight Nuclear Reactors
PARIS (JTA) France
and Egypt have reached a tenta-
tive agreement for the construc-
tion of eight nuclear power
stations in Egypt. President
Anwar Sadat, on a three-day
visit, announced the project at a
meeting with Egyptian students
The agreement was signed by
French Minister for Energy
Andre Giraud and his Egyptian
counterpart, Ahmed Ezzedine
Hillal, before Sadat's departure.
It is understood that the project,
one of the most ambitious yet
developed by a Third World
country, will provide all of
Egypt's electric needs by the end
of the century.
French and Egyptian sources
stressed that the Franco-Egypt-
ian nuclear cooperation program
will be geared exclusively to
I peaceful usages. Other sources in
Paris stressed, however, that the
development of a nuclear indus-
try, the construction of several
nuclear power stations and the
i operation of research laboratories
will provide Cairo with the exper-
tise and means to develop a
nuclear weapon should it chose to
do so.

LONDON Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher will hold talks on
the Middle East with President Reagan when she visits him in
Washington later this month. She said she believed that the Camp
Uavid peace agreements had been "a very great step forward" and
fxpected that Reagan would be considering "bow to take it further
Mrs. Thacher, answering questions from a number of pro-Arab MPs
who have just visited the West Bank, fended off strident criticism of
Israel saying: "It is absolutely vital that if there is going to be a
settlement of the great problems in the area one side should honor the
'ight of Israel to live behind secure borders and in peace and the other
hould honor the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people. One of the
problems has been to get these two things going forward together.
NEW YORK The National Conference on Soviet Jewry reported
i hat Viktor Brailovsky's medical condition has improved. He is now
receiving the appropriate medication and dietary supplement needed
lot the treatment of hit illness which the NCSJ said was a liver
ondition. This improved care is seen by the NCSJ as the result of
publk and private intervention taking place on his behalf in many
Wstern countries.
According to the latest information, the NCSJ said Brailovsky was
not transferred to Lefortovo Prison, as the NCSJ reported last week,
nit remains in Moscow's Butyrka Prison where he has been since his
.irrest last November. Brailovsky, a leading Jewish activist of the
Jswish emigration movement and editor of the journal. "Jews in the
USSR," was arrested on charges of "defaming the Soviet state and
public order."
WASHINGTON A bipartisan bloc of 104 members of the House ,
has written President Reagan asking him to set aside 63 million in the |
new U.S. budget for the continuing prosecution of 18 cases against '
alleged Nazi war criminals living in the U.S. which are now before the
courts and 210 other cases presently under investigation.
The investigations, the letter pointed out, are under a special unit
the Office of Special Investigations established in the Criminal
Division of the Justice Department. The letter initiated by Reps.
William I^ehman (D., Fla.) and Hamilton Fish Jr. (R., N.Y.I, said that
the proceedings are being directed "by an extremely competent and
dedicated attorney, Allan Ryan."
The letter said that "Because of the ages of the suspects and wit-
nesses and the extremely complex evidentiary and logistics problems
involved in theae caaea, it is essential that prosecution be brought
expaditioualy and professionally "
TEL AVIV Israel will produce between a quarter and a half of its
electric power requirements from nuclear energy by the year 2,000,
according to Uzi Eilam, chairman of the Israel Atomic Energy Com-
mission. At the present rate of planning and preparation three or four
nuclear power stations, each of 1,000 megawatt capacity, will be
constructed within the next 11 years, he said.
Experts are investigating a number of possible sites for construc-
tion of the first nuclear power plants. Most of the quipment will be
build within Israel, but agreement will have to be reached with
another country for the supply of the nuclear core. Eilam said that
Negev phosphates could be utilized for the supply of part of the
uranium required to fuel the reactors.
New Reagan Voice
Arabs Say Israel Violates Human Rights
Ac oassioned de-
miation of Arab charges
that Israel violates human
rights in the occupied terri-
tories was delivered here by
Michael Novak, the new
head of the U.S. delegation
to the United Nations
Human Bights Com-
I was shocked at hear-
ing so much hatred, so
many lies, such squalid
racism, such despicable
anti-Semitism all in the
sacred name of human

He spoke in response to the
speech by Farouk Kaddoumi.

attacks on Israel and on the

awaited with interest by the
dt*g^* inasmuch as he is the
first appointee of the Reagan Ad-
ministration to address the in-
ternational forum. They were
dearly taken aback by the
\ehernence wkh which he
castigated the Arabs and his
unqualified defense of Israel in
terms much stronger than any
used by previous American
Novak apparently had in-
structions to take a tough line
against Israel's foes and that is
believed here to signal the tone of
the new Administration's
rhetoric in future debates in UN
Kaddoumi himseif was ex
-.remely harsh, accusing the
'ormer Carter Administration of
advertising its hypocritical
'ampaign for human rights
*riik simultaneously aiding
Israel to build a military
arsenal, to improve methods of
torture, to speed up fts process of
judaization" in the territories.
He urged the Reagan
Administration to "begin by
censuring Israel" but observed
that indeed, this will not take
place as Reagan like Carter will
revel in isolating the Egyptian (
regime from the rest of the Arab
nation.'' a reference to the
Egyptian-1sraeli peace treaty.
NOVAK. in response,
declared: I have heard here
attacks upon Zionism in accents
of a murderous hatred not beard
since the days of the Nazis. It is
though this chamber has
retrogressed by 40 years, as
though this is not 1961 but 1941
and not Geneva but along the
Hitler-Stalin axis
Novak, a theologian and
journalist, was a founding
member of the Coalition for a
Democratic Majority and sup-
ported Reagan's election. He is of
Czech origin and non-Jewish. He
opened his speech my remarking:
"I was touched when the Pope
(John Paul III went to Ausch-
witz In an address to the UN he
called attention to the Human
Rights Declaration. That
declaration, he said, rose above
every other factor from the
millions of victims of the
Holocaust. I cannot forget that
we sit in this room because of the
suffering of millions of people,
many of whom might have lived
as long as we but were not
permitted to live. Our work here
(lows from their interrupted lives.
The Declaration of Human
Rights is a memorial to their

Continuing, Novak said: "The

Legislators Nominate Watchmen
Members of the Congressional Commission on
Security and Cooperation in Europe have made
public their nomination of four leading figures in
the Soviet Helsinki movement. Included on the
Commission is U.S. Rep. Dante B. Fascell (D.,
Fla.l, its chairman.
Nominees are Russian physicist Yuri Orlov,
Jewish mathematician Anatoly Sharansky,
Ukrainian poet Mylola Rudenko and Lithuanian
historian Petkus. The quartet are being proposed
for the 1981 Nobel Peace Prize.
The nomination declares that the four men,
each of whom faces a decade of imprisonment for
monitoring Soviet compliance with the 1975
Helsinki Finai Act, "have put their lives at the
service of peace and decency in the conduct of all
A national plan of action to work with local
police to help prevent desecration of Jewish in-
stitutions has been announced by Irvin Stein-
berg. National Commander of the Jewish War
Veterans of the U.S.A.
Citing the increasing numbers of acts of
vandalism perpetrated against Jewish cemeteries,
houses of worship and community centers,
Steinberg has sent a directive to over 450 JWV
Post Commanders to institute, with the approval
and guidance of local police authorities, patrols of
volunteer members, who would supplement the
police by acting as their "eyee and ears."
VVe will not act as vigilantes," Steinberg
declared. "We will patrol with the permission and
cooperation of the local police and the leadership
of the Jewish institutions. We will assist the
police, not act as their substitute.
\ study by the Central Statistical Bureau
reveals that Israel would rank first in the free
KP orld in terms of scientific projects in the area of
military research. Israel now has 1.102 military
scientists per million of population, while the
United States ratio is 941; England, 582; Sweden,
516; Denmark, 450; and Japan, 146.
At the same time, the study indicates that
Israel palys a less prominent role in the
registration of patents for new discoveries in
industrial production. In 1978 Israel registered 24
Patents in the United States in that field, com-
pared with Austria which registered 132 patents;
Switzerland, 147; Sweden, 128; and Holland, 67.
"There is a rising anti-Semitism today among
''jP*P'e who are very religious and very nation-
frsl"'." says Tom. F. Driver, a prominent
i Protestant churchman, in a recent issue of the
magazine Christianity and Crises. He adds: "I
am deeply troubled by this, most especially by
the resurgence of anti-Semitism among
Uinstians and its recent rapid growth among
hern. Driver specifically names Moral Majority
leader Jerry Falwell and television evangelist
James Robinson, and the movement associated
with the leadership, as the source for the new anti-
All three of the conservative leaders cited by
Driver have denied that they are anti-Semitic and
also have stressed their support of Israel a fact
noted by Driver. "It is also true," he writes, "that
this group is pro-Israel. We are thus presented
with a great and frightening irony; the most pro;
Israel group in American Christianity, is also the
most anti-Semitic."
The leadership of the National Council of
Young Israel has condemned the proposals
adopted at the convention of Israel's Labor Party
as "an assault on the rights and sensitivities of
the Orthodox community in Israel and
throughout the world/'
Nathaniel Saperstein, president of the Young
Israel movement, and Dr. Harold M. Jacobs,
chairman of the board, termed the Labor Party's
resulutions to revoke recent legislation in Israel
barring abortions for social reasons and limiting
autopsies, and to introduce measures contrary to
Jewish law and tradition, a declaration of war on
Israel's religious community and the sacred
heritage of the Jewish people."
The Young Israel leaders characterized the
Labor Party's pledge to finance non-Orthodox
religious facilities and provide its representatives
with official status in Israel's religious councils
as, "a blatant and outrageous attempt to impose
upon the Jews of Israel the Diaspora-spawned
corruptions of the Jewish faith which have no
constituency or following within Israel itself."
The second and final phase of the Conference on
Security and Cooperation in Europe has resumed
in Madrid.
Ambassador Max Kampelman, head of the
U.S. delegation, addressed the plenary session
and renewed his plea that regardless of the
philosophical end ideological differences that
yexist among countries, all should unite "on the
principle of human dignity."
He emphasized again that the change in ad-
ministration in American government "does not
mean there is a change in our government's
objectives we remain fully committed to the
ideals of the CSCE process to the preservation
and enhancement of human freedom, to respect
for the sovereignty and independence of all states,
and to the goal of military security and
cooperation among us."
Ambassador Kampelman also noted the
continuation of violations of human rights,
particularly by the Soviet Union. He said that
"detente" is not an accurate description of East-
West relations today, but that it remains an
objective to be sought and achieved. He stated
that words alone, if not accompanied by con-
structive action by all signatories of the Final
Act, will not accomplish the purpose of the
Helsinki Final Act.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
KITISSA All these things and many more the Lord said to
Moses on Mount Sinai. And when the people saw how long
Moses remained on Mount Sinai, they said to Aaron:
"Make us a god that we can see, for we do not know what has
happened to Moses."
Aaron could not persuade the people that they were wrong, so
he told them to bring all their golden jewelry. He melted the gold
and made of it a calf.
The next morning, the people of Israel held a festival in honor
of the golden calf. The Lord saw what was happening and He
ordered Moses to return to the people. Moses descended, bearing
the Ten Commandments.
When Moses beheld his people worshipping a golden calf, he
grew angry and dashed the Two Tablets to the ground. Then he
destroyed the golden calf.
When the people realized how they had sinned, they mourned
deeply and pleaded with Moses to return to the mountain.
Once again Moses ascended M. Sinai, and the Lord gave him
another set of Tablets. When Moses came down, his face shone
with the glory of God. And the Children of Israel were awed by
the rays of brilliant light which came from his face and they
promised never to worship idols again. EXODUS 30:11 34:55
