Purim Today
Despite Somber Theme, It
Brings Out the Devil iu Us
No festival in the Jew-
calendar is more joyous
fian Purim, which falls this
ear on Mar. 20 (14th
rdar II), except in Jeru-
ilem where it is celebrated
ne day later. 15th Adar is
oown as Shushan Purim,
ad recalls the fact that the
ews who lived in the
fersian town of Shushan
Dntinued to fight their
lemies on 14th Adar, then
celebrated their victory a
day later. It was ordained
that towns in Israel with
ancient walls dating back
to the days of Joshua,
should celebrate Purim on
the 15th Adar.
The central elements of Purim
are joy and celebration. It is his-
torical in origin, involving a plot
in Persia by the wicked Haman to
exterminate the Jews. By the
courage of Queen Esther, aided
by her wise cousin, Mordecai,
Haman is outwitted, defeated
and destroyed. The Jews were

The 1981 Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish
^PPeal Campaign has neared the
pJf-way point with commit-
ents totaling $488,000 reported

Phairman. The $488,000 re-

rer 1,000 contributors to the
1980 campaign who are currently
>ng contacted.
"We are pleased with the

brcard basis," Levine stated.

omparable increases on the re-

aponsibilities to the peoole of
Israel as well as provide the
necessary funds to continue to
build a strong local Jewish
community," Levine concluded.
In addition to reaching contri-
butors to the 1980 campaign, a
concerted effort is being made to
contact new contributors. Over
125 new contributors have
already responded to the 1981
A rapid increase in campaign
results is expected with the ad-

activities planned including the

Some Say They Are
'Disappointed' by Policies
(JTA) Prominent Jewish
Republicans who met with
President Reagan and his
advisors at the White
House have indicated deep
concern over the Admin-
istration's decision to pro-
vide extra fuel tanks and
missiles for Saudi Arabia's
62 F-15 jet warplanes in
relation to both America's
programs and Israel's
needs before the sale is
The leaders observed to
Reagan's advisers, that Saudi
Arabia should give support for
U.S. policy in reciprocity for the
military assistance the Reagan
Administration is giving them.
Reagan and his advisers gave
the Jewish leaders assurances
that the Administration con-
sidered Israel a strategic asset to
the U.S. and would maintain
Israel's qualitative military
superiority in the area. But they
did not specifically pledge they
would seek to obtain Saudi
Max Fisher
MEANWHILE, resolutions
disappproving the sale to Saudi
Arabia are being prepared in both
the Senate and the House, and a
majority of the Republican-
dominated Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee appears to dis-
approve delivery of the equip-
ment to Saudi Arabia without
Saudi reciprocation.
Most of the 32 Jewish Repub-
licans at the White House meet-

saved, wrongs were righted, and
there were great celebrations.
THE CENTRAL characters in
the great drama of Purim have
become symbols even in modern
times. The name Haman has
come to be associated with every
oppressor of Israel; Mordecai
stands for every wise leader of
the Jews in time of trouble; and
Esther for every Jewish heroine.
Purim, in fact, signifies a festival
of deliverance of Jews from any
threatened evil.
Many communities keep in-
dividual Purims every year, to
celebrate their own deliverance.
The Jews of Egypt commemo-
rated an event in 1524 when a
governor threatened to massacre
them because they would not join
him in a revolt against the Sultan
of Turkey, who ruled Egypt. The |
Jews were saved when a revolt
took place against the governor,
and he was slain. A book was
written to tell the story and read
in Egyptian synagogues on their
special Purim.
The Jews of Frankfurt in
Germany also celebrated a
special Purim for being saved
from an attack on their ghetto in
1614. Other special Purims were
kept in Vilna after a rabbi in 1804
survived a gunpowder explosion;
and similar events were com-
memorated in Tiberias, Israel; in
Saragossa, Spain; in Narbonne in
France; in Prague, Czecho-
slovakia and in Rhodes, Greece.
IT IS AN unusual sight to see
what is normally a solemn, litur-
gical synagogue service become a
parody but this is what
happens on Purim. Reading is
often done in a comical way with

Welcome Beryl Elizabeth Ftreatone! Beryl is the first born
to Dr. Gregory and Rena Firestone. She made her appearance at
Women's Hospital on February 16 at 3:58 a.m. Beryl weighed 6
pounds 11 ounces and was 20 inches long. Her proud Grand-
parents are Mr. and Mrs. Richard Loderhose of Jamaica, N.Y.
and Ceal Beach, Calif, and Tampans Dr. and Mrs. Frederick
Firestone. Our heartiest congratulations to all of you on this
exciting occasion.
Three rousing cheers go to 16 year old Jeff Meyer, son of
Mrs. Carole Wolfe, who was tapped on February 25 as a new
member of Mu Aloha Theta. the math honor society, at Leto
High School, where he is a sophomore. To make the occasion
even more significant, Jeff's 17 year old sister, Lisa, is the
current president of Leto's chapter of Mu Alpha Theta. Follow-
ing the tapping, there was a lovely reception for the new
members and their families. A formal induction into the honor
society will take place in the near future. Another really special
honor that has recently been bestowed upon this family is that
Lisa was just told that she has earned the right of being
Valedictorian of her senior class at Leto. We think that all of you
are terrific and should be truly bursting at the seams with pride
over your recent academic achievements. Congratulations Jeff
and Lisa!
Our congratulations go to two of our friends who have been
nominated to make up part of the new slate of officers for the
1981-82 Executive Board of the Tampa Symphony Guild.
Formal elections will be held in April at the monthly Guild
meeting for, among other officers, Bev Lauring who has been
nominated as president and Paula Schimmel, who has been
nominated as Vice-president of Membership. In addition, our
friend Beth Mellman will, or course, be serving in the capacity of
immediate past president (and continual friend, advisor, and
hard-worker! for the Guild. This arm of the symphony body as a
whole is so vital to its survival that we indeed all benefit from
participating in its various fund-raising projects throughout the
Volunteers and their incredible dedication, enthusiasm, and
hard work is what makes Tampa's Russian Resettlement pro-
gram work! A very special needed group is that of translators.
They are the communication link between the new emigres and
the Tampa community. With only one translator, Ilia Kruzh-
kow, as a part of the resettlement staff, the program relys heavi-
ly on the volunteers who provide translation services. Speaking
Russian or Yiddish, the following people translate whereever
needed whether it be on a job interview, in school, at the doctor's
office, or just explaining the "American system"; a huge thank
you goes to Rae Galpern, MoDie Glickman, Rebecca Hochberg,
Milia Parnee, Anne Zack, Terry Sins ley, and many other of the
local Russian-American community.
A new, enthusiastic, and what promises to be hard-working
group of ladies has recently been nominated to lead Congre-
gation Kol Ami's Sisterhood for the coming year. To be voted
upon at the next meeting will be: Rachel Herzog for president:
Barbie Levine for Executive vice-president; Elaine Broverman
and Sheryl Yudis for Membership; Claudia Valins and Sylvia

Jeremy Brochin. director of the Jewish Student Center
(Hillell at the University of South Florida informs us that he has
two fascinating slide-lectures that he would be happy to present
to any interested organization, free of charge.
The first is on the history of the Illustrated Passover
Haggadah and includes slides of Haggadot from Holland, Italy,
Germany, India, America, Israel, and many other places where
Jews have lived. The lecture emphasizes how the cultures where
Jews have lived influenced the Haggaday and the celebration of
The second lecture is on Hebrew illuminated manuscripts.
It includes slides of Bibles, Siddurim. Rabbinic Texts, Wedding
contracts, etc. that Jews have used and beautified in various
countries of their dispersion. This lecture, too, shows the in-
fluence of different cultures on Jewish life and the artistic ex-
pression of the Jewish people.
Jeremy may be reached at the Hillel USF office.

Holiday Brings Out the Devil in Us

different voices and impromptu
dramatics. The most famous and
delightful part of the service,
especially for children, involves
the obligation to "blot out"
Hainan's name. Everyone makes
a noise. They yell, stamp their
feet, shake a grager or even a tin
of nails. No noisemaker is taboo,
and many youngsters come up
with amazingly innovative ideas.
At the conclusion of Ma'ariv
(the evening prayers) and again
the next morning, the Scroll of
Esther is read,. and it is in-
cumbent on every Jew young
and old, man and woman, to
listen to the Megillah. It is in-
teresting that it is the only Book
in the whole Bible in which God's
name does not appear.
Observant Jews fast on the
day before Purim. It is known as
the Fast of Esther, because she
fasted on the day prior to appear-
ing before King Ahasuerus to
present her petition.
PURIM IS different from
other solemn holidays in the Jew-
ish calendar. Many shops remain
open, and you are permitted to
work as usual. But you can feel
the holiday spirit in the air.
"Hamantashen are eaten
three-cornered cakes of dough,
filled with poppyseed or jam,
representing Hainan's hat.
People send mishloach manot to
their friends and the poor
these are gifts of fruit, cookies,
cakes, sweets and nuts. A special
family feast called a seudah is
held in the afternoon.
Children and many adults
wear fancy costumes and hold
masquerades, parties and Purim
spiels whoch "are hilarious satires
and parodies, and' no one is
immune from ridicle. Although
Jews are known for their
moderation with liquor, it is even
considered a mitzvah (com-
mandment) to drink ad lo yada
(until one doesn't know) the
difference between "blessed be
Mrdpcai" and cursed be
Daman.'' What is important is to
have fun on Purim. Modern
Israel made one work out of the
three little Hebrew ones and
adopted adloyada as the Hebrew
word for their Purim carnival.
Different ethnic groups have
their own customs. Iranian Jews
eat their meal seated on beautiful
Persian carpets. The father, with
his long, dark beard, wears a
turban of cloth and a belted white
gown striped with silver.
'Master Speaks'

The movie, "Master Speaks,"
will be shown Sunday, March 29,
1 p.m. at the Jewish Community
Center. This free program will be
hosted by the Jewish War
Veterans, Albert Aronovitz Post

The program will be presented
by volunteer members from
Citizen's Freedom Foundation
Tampa Bay (C.F.F. of Tampa
Bay). They will share their ex-
periences with the various
"destructive cults" and will
answer questions from the
audience after the film.
All grandparents, parents and
children of all ages are invited to
attend and learn of this imme-
diate problem facing our com-
munity, state and nation.

a carpet, chanting oriental songs,
while the father smokes his

festive meal consists of fresh,
sweet dishes in contrast to their
usual spiced food. The father of a
Kurdish family stands at the
door to welcome his guesto.
He wears a jacket over J

Dayan Mum on Talk With Sadat
TEL AVIV (JTA) Former Foreign Minister
Dayan had an hour-long talk with Egyptian President Ann
Sadat at the President's Nile delta residence north of Cairo.'
communique was issued after the meeting, and reporters i
not allowed in the vicinity.
Dayan said after the meeting, "I'm here on a private visit,i
a private individual." He had earlier said that his visit
Egypt, at the invitation of Anis Mansour, editor of the Octoh_
magazine, to attend a symposium on peace organized by tbl
journal, had nothing to do with this summer's Knesset election I
in Israel.
But he added, "If it does have any effect on the elections,|]
shall be pleased." Dayan was in Egypt for three days.
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion

TZAV An elaboration of the sacrificial laws: the burnt-offer-
ing the meal offering, the sin-offering: guilt-offering and peace-
offering. Moses consecrated Aaron and his sons for the
priesthood: he made their offerings of consecration, sprinkled
them with the oil of anointment and taught them the order of
sacrifice "And at the door of the tent of meeting shall ye abide
day and night seven days, and keep the change of the Lord, that
ye die not: for so I am commanded" (Leviticus 8.35).

Kitty Returns
To Auschwitz
Kitty Felix was just a child
when she was sent to one of Nazi
Germany's most dreadful con-
centration camps. Now some 34
years later, she returned to the
horrors of Auschwitz, where she
spent almost two years during
1943 and 1944. This moving 90-
mmute documentary entitled
Kitty Returns To Auschwitz,''

the Holocaust. Now living in
Birmingham, England, Kitty de-
scribes her early childhood in
Bielsko-Biala, a small town in
southwest Poland. She relates
the events in her life dating from
the German invasion on Sep-
tember 1, 1939. until her incar-
ceration at Auschwitz, on April 2,

ments that she tried to make her-
her survival.
Kitty's narration continues

witz on November 11, 1944 and
beyond. In the end, 30 members
of her own family and almost all
her townspeople perished at the
hands of the Nazis.

Jewish Community
Sun City Center
Another "suburb" heard from.
While Sun City Center cannot
actually be termed a suburb of
Tampa (we're just about equi-
distant between Tampa and
Sarasota): many of our Jewish
residents in Sun City Center try
to coordinate their activities with
the synagogues and Jewish
Community Center of Tampa. A
good many of us receive the
Jewish Flu rid ian of Tampa.
We're well over 100 acknow-
ledged Jewish residents in this
retirement community; the
plethers of local retirement
activities keep most of us within
the bounds of the community.
We have a local Jewish Club
with a membership of 110 which
meets the third Wednesday of
every month. We try to get
speakers, films, and promote dis-
cussions of the many facets of our
Jewish heritage.
The president of the Jewish
Club is Sidney Nobel who finds
time not only to lead our Jewish
community in its secular ac-
tivities, but is also active in the
Jewish Center of S.E. Hills-
Ixirough County and a member of
Temple Beth-EI of Bradenton.
The Jewish Center of South
East Hillsborough County holds
services every Sabbath eve. We
meet in the Meditation Chapel of
the United Community Church of
Sun City Center whose pastor
and congregation have graciously
afforded us this place to worship.
We're proud that our services
attract more than 40 congregants
every Friday evening. Since we
represent all facets of Jewish reli-
gious idealogy, our services are
truly ecumenical. We have an
Oneg Shabbat every other Friday
night for a mere informal get
together and socialization.
The general factotum of our
Jewish Center (we have no formal
organization) are Mr. and Mrs.
Aaron Iskiwitch, Mr. and Mrs.
Martin Dodell, Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Goldberg and Mr. and
Mrs. Sidney Nobel.
The advertisements for Sun
City Center list it as a com-
munity too busy to retire. We, of
the Jewish Community there, feel
that way too.
We certainly cannot and do not
want to retire from our Jewish
religion and heritage.

Actions Belie Reagan's Words
Naftali Lavie, the Foreign Ministry spokesman |
who accompanied Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
on Shamir's recent talks in Washington, is making it
clear that Israel has as yet received no clarification,
or indeed official confirmation, of the U.S. decision to
sell four AW ACS planes to the Saudi Arabians.
Still, Shamir who is his boss certainly acted
angry enough before the Knesset this week when he
talked about the implications of the sale, confir-
mation or no confirmation.
This suggests that the fat is in the fire so far as
Israel's security is concerned, and that the Reagan
Administration ought to come out and say, once and
for all, whether anything the President said about his
Middle East policy during the campaign was no more
than just that the old campaign hoopla.
Certainly, the President has not yet given up on
saying fine things about Israel's security, Israel as a
linchpin in the defense against Soviet expansion in
the Middle East, Israel as a friend and an ally.
But when the President acts, somehow it all
comes out differently. Then, it is Egypt that gets the
nod. And it is the Saudis who are given the AW ACS,
despite Saudi King Khalids vow to launch a holy
war against Israel.
Purim in Our Time
The advent of Purim, begining with the reading
of the Megillah Thursday night, launches an ancient
and happy celebration.
Happy? Even though the story of Purim re-
counted in the Book of Esther tells how the tyrant,
Haman, attempted to wipe out the Jewish people?
The answer is yes. First, because Haman failed,
and Jewish tradition triumphed. Second, because
Haman has since become the symbol of every tyrant
in every generation who has attempted to do
likewise. And failed.
There is no doubt that the attempts at Jewish
genocide are in themselves agonizing. The most
recent, is the Hitlerian Holocaust, although some ob-
servers note that the Soviet Union's anti-Semitic
campaign against the Jewsus no less dangerous.
But the point is that Purim underscores the fact
that the Jewish people are an historic continuum that
no anti-Semite, no matter how gifted his capacity for
evil, has ever mitigated.
This is why Purim is such a happy holiday. It
gives us the capacity to razz the black hats through-
out the Jewish generations. It gives us cause for hope
that, not matter how bad things seem, in the end we
A Jewish Journalist Passes i
Everyone will miss Bernard Postal. His is a
name that readers of the Jewish press, as well as
editors and writers of the Jewish press, have known
for decades.
Mr. Postal died on Mar. 8 at the age of 75, and
his passing has brought to an end his more than half
a century in Jewish journalism.
There was his editorship of several Jewish news-
papers and magazines. And his stint as public infor-
mation director of the National Jewish Welfare
Board during the ten last years of his retirement
before his passing away.
Then, there was his work with the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency. None of this includes his stint as a
New York Times man. One can go on and on. One
often wonders at the creative energy of such highly-
productive personalities as was Bernard Postal's. |
That is why he will be missed.

that as a member of the
House Foreign Affairs
Committee "I'll be the

Appearing on nationally-

stud that his being a non-Jew,
feeling as he does that Israel
reflects the best democratic
interests in the Middle East, "my
position will be more credible
than if coining from someone who
is Jewish."
LeBoutiluer revealed that
members of his own party, on the I
same committe, did not share his 1
views. He said that during a
discussion with Paul Findlay of
Illinois, a member of his com-
mitte, the latter advocated
recognition of the PLO and
alleged that the PLO "was one of
the most moderate forces in the
Middle East."
"NOWTHAT man is obviously

least III cancel him out."
LeBoutillier told Riesel that lie,
expected a fight within his com-
mittee on Foreign Aid. He said
that Carter had left a $6 billion
foreign aid item in the budget.

Budget wants to trim it to $3
As it affects the Middle East,
he said, will be crucial "We've

He said that there was
evidence that a Middle East
bank, whose identity he did not
have at the moment, was getting
from $400-500 million each year
in foreign aid and turned around
and made interest-free, long-term
loans to the PLO.
. "THIS POLICY is crazy that
we should give aid to banks that

{With the birth of the TOP.
Xjewish Foundation, there are
l^anv questions which arise
\about this new development in
\the Tampa Jewish community.
JTTie following Article has been
{prepared with this in mind.

TO.P. Jewish Foundation
IQ: What is the Tampa-Orlando-
I Pinellas Jewish Foundation, Inc.
I A: It is a non-profit, charitable
|corp<>ration that is known as the
ir.O.P. Jewish Foundation. The
corporation legally came into
fcxUtence on December 12, 1980,
land is comprised of three member
basses the Tampa class, the
Orlando class and the Pinellas
faass. Each class consists of the
person serving from time-to-time
|as the Federation President of
each community.
I How is the organization run?
[A: Like any corporate entity the
[TOP. Jewish Foundation has
[corporate officers and a board of
[trustees. There are five trustees
[on the board from each
[Federation, or a total of fifteen
trustees. There is a president,
three vice presidents, a secretary
and treasurer. Of the six officers,
jtwo are from each Federation.

be served by preserving a sturdy
financial base. Endowment pro-
grams have been in existence in

cities around the country and
have proven to be huge financial
successes. In order to develop an
endowment program that would
have long standing effect, funds
were needed to hire an ap-
propriate professional and to take
care of other operational needs.
Standing alone, neither of the
three communities had sufficient
capital to-invest in the program.
Hence, a pilot project was put
together through the talents of
professional personnel of the
Council of Jewish Federations.
The primary purpose of the
alliance of the three communities
is to share the expense of ad-
ministering the program, share
ideas on endowment, and invest
in one pool, the proceeds of
endowment gifts.
Q: What happens to endowment
gifts that are invested in the
common pool?
A: It is.very important to un-
derstand that any endowment
gift for the benefit of a particular
federation can and will only be
used at the discretion of the local
Endowment Grants and Alloca-
tions Committee. In other words,
although an endowment gift
made in Tampa will be combined
with endowments from Pinellas
County and Orlando for invest-
ment purposes, no part of those
funds, whether income or princi-
pal, will be used to further pro-
jects of the other communities.
Each federation has ultimate
control over its share of the fund
for grants and allocations.
Q. If we have the T.O.P. Jewish
Foundation, why do we need local
endowment committees?
A: The local Endowment
Committee, and its subcommit-
tees, may be the most important
aspect of the program. The
Endowment Committee in this
community represents the grass
roots of endowment develop-
ment. One might think of the
Endowment Program on the
whole as a sandwich: the bottom
piece of bread represents endow-
ment development, the top piece
of bread deals with grants and
allocations (both being local
functions). The filling in between
is the TOP. Jewish Foundation.
Without the two slices of bread,
you have no sandwich. As im-
portant as bread is to a randwich,
is how important the local en-
dowment committee is to the
endowment program.
Q. What will the endowment
committee do?
A: The Endowment Committee
will be a premier committee of
men and women in the commu-
nity who are respected by their
peers and who are knowledgeable
about people in the community.
It will be the function of the
Endowment Committee as a
whole, after appropriate orien-
tation, to establish the validity of
the Endowment Program in the
course of their every day contact
with their peers in the com-
munity. The people serving on
the committee will not be merely
figureheads, or names that can be
dropped at a party, but indivi-
duals who see the need for en-
dowment development and who
will actively "talk up" the
concept in the community. Since
it is hoped that we will have
representatives from the
professional and business
communities serving on the
Endowment Committee, they will
be asked to serve on certain sub-
committees. Several of these sub-
committees include a Legal and
Tax Committee; Special Pros-
pects Committee; Publicity and
Promotion Committee; and other
appropriate sub-committees.
Q.: How are endowments to be
A: This is truly the subject of an
orientation program and cannot
be covered in a few sentences.
Suffice to say that development
of endowment gifts comes
through publicity and promotion
about endowment giving and the
tax preferential treatment given
to different modes of giving; the
functioning of an active legal and
tax committee; one-to-one dis-
cussions with individuals; and
the overall enthusiasm of the
persons on the endowment
committee who can visualize the
importance and potential of the
Q: Will the development of
endowment conflict with the
annual campaign?
A: In a word NO! The
experience of Endowment
Programs across the country
teaches us that, if anything, the
annual campaign is enhanced
because of the endowment
program and contributions to the
annual campaigns go up, not
down. A fundamental difference
between the annual campaign
and endowment program is that
the endowment fund has the aura
of permanency where the annual
dollars raised for campaign are
dollars that were needed yester-

organization that helped Reagan
and Vice President George Bush
obtain what the Coalition said
after the elections was 45 percent
of the Jewish vote a figure
approximately equal to the
Jewish vote given President
Carter which was the lowest on
record for a Democratic nominee.
Reagan, who was personally
involved in part of the two hours
of discussion with the Jewish
Republicans, expressed under-
standing of their concerns and
assured them that the security
and viability of Israel would not
be jeopardized by the sale to the.
Saudis. He also outlined his
national economic and defense
programs, and the Jewish leaders
who he had invited to the White
House to be informed of his
programs, welcomed them ard
voiced their support.
MAX FISHER, who was
honorary co-chairman of the
Coalition for Reagan-Bush and
was the principal spokesman for
the Jewish Republican leaders
after the White House meeting,
said he was relieved by the Presi-
dent's statements on the Saudi

For Reagan, the Past is an Imperative
Continued from Page 4
There is nothing to be sur-
prised about in any of this it
was predictable from the
beginning. But what worries me
is that suddently there seems to
be emerging a national sense of
gloating about all of these
WE HAVE come a long way
since our refusal to face the
monumental significance of the
war at hand in Vietnam despite
our intuitive understanding of it.
We have come a long way since
even our most recent
humiliations at the hands of
pipsqueak Havana and all over
Africa by other pipsqueaks, as
If President Reagan is spoiling
for a fight to remind the world
what a sleeping giant America is
like that won't again march to
battle with both hands tied
behind its back just to make
ihings fair, a lot of people seem
just as willing to join him.
The trouble is I'm not sure that
all we have to do to accomplish
this is from now on just to show
our muscles and be unafraid to
use them if it comes to that.
EVEN MORE, I'm not sure
President Reagan understands
this. The world has changed far
more than we are willing to
concede since those simpler days
in Paris when Le Due Tho made
all that fuss about
arrangements of the peace
The new President has given,
since his inauguration in
January, every indication that
the world has not changed for
him. This is a polite way of
saying that Mr. Reagan is living
in the past.
The President makes much
about the old American work
ethic and the old American
willingness to sacrifice when the
need arises and the old American
capacity for ingenuity and en-
terprise. All that is good. Very
BUT HE also makes much of
the old American socio-economic
structure as a virtue a
structure in which nobody was
anybody's keeper except the
fatcats of their profit. And he
luxuriates in the circulated
photos of his wife in megabuck
furcoats (the environmentalist's
taboo) to prove the point. All
that is bad. Very bad.
It is as if he is seeking to return
to the self-reliant days of
America's renaissance by erasing
all our past history in between.
But in erasing the bad, our
defeats, Mr. Reagan seems
perfectly pleased to erase the
good, our victories, as well.
And there have been victories
victories in our political, social
and economic awarenesses at
home. It would be futile to list
them here now; they are the stuff
of which so many newspaper
columns are being woven today
on the loom of the President's
budget-cutting axe against the
poor, the elderly, the disad
vantaged; while, at the same
time, the fatcats are encouraged
to grow even fatter.
It is as if the President is
trying to rebuild the ,' merican
setting of an old John Wayne
movie or even one of his own
in the certainty that once
again blazing guns in the hands
of intuitive goodness must
BUT THEY didn't in Vietnam,
when we were still close to the
golden aura of our national
renaissance. Surely, they can not
be expected to triumph so
elementally today, not now when
we are so far away from it.
This bears heavily on the new
Reagan militarism. I have no
quarrel with the need for it
only with the way. The President
must be brought up to date on
the realities of the 1980's not
just America's realities, but
those of our allies, as well. And
especially of our enemies'.
Then, perhaps, his clenched
fist will have far greater ef-
fectiveness and far greater
meaning. And, one hopes,
without even having to let it fly.
Reagan Picks
Jewish Leader as U.S. Envoy to Austria
(JTA) Theodore
Cummings of Beverly
Hills, Calif., who is
regarded as President
Reagan's closest Jewish
friend, has been selected by
the President to be the next
U.S. Ambassador to
Austria, the country where
he was born, a White
House source informed the
Jewish Telegraphic
While the White House would
not officially confirm the ap-
pointment of Cummings pending
a formal announcement, it was
understood that his nomination
probably would be submitted to
the Senate for confirmation late
this week.
CUMMINGS, 72. a financier
and philanthropist in the Los
Angeles area, has been close to
Reagan for more than 30 years
and supported him in his Gub-
ernatorial and Presidential
campaigns. He was an honorary
co-chairman of the Coalition for
Iteagan-Bush, the Jewish organi-
zation that strongly backed
Reagan's Presidential bid last
Cummings immigrated to the
United States with his widowed
mother in 1920, at the age of 11,
and started life in America in
New York City's then flourishing
Yiddish theater. But he made his
fortune in southern California
where he became a grocer and
expanded his business into a
major food retail and super-
market chain which he sold in
'.59. He is presently active in
California as a civic leader and
Cummings will be the third
American Jew in succession to
serve as Ambassador to Vienna.
In 1977, President Carter ap-
pointed Milton Wolf of Cleveland
to that post. Wolf resigned a year
ago and was succeeded by Philip
Kaiser of New York, who was
then U.S. Ambassador to
Hungary. Kaiser left Vienna last
THE VIENNA post is no
sinecure. It is considered ex-
tremely important, since Austria,
following the post-World War II
four power occupation by the
U.S., Britain, France and the
Soviet Union, has established
itself as a buffer between East
and West. It is the principal way-
station where refugees from the
Eaat-notably Soviet Jews are
received and processed.
Austria's Chancellor, Bruno
Kreisky, who is Jewish, is deeply
involved in seeking a solution of
the Israeli Arab conflict which, in
his view, requires mutual
recognition between Israel and
the Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation. He was the first Western
head of government to invite
PLO chief Yasir Arafat to his
A ripple in U.S.-Austrian
affairs was created a year ago by
an arms sales development. An
Austrian company, using the
technology of an American firm,
shipped rifles to a source not
authorized under the American
licensing agreement. According
to the State Department, the
rifles, destined for Pakistan, were
diverted to the PLO., The license
was suspended.
CUMMINGS IS the first
Jewish Trustee of the University
of Southern California where he
fought conditions attached to a
large Saudi Arabian grant to that
institution. He is also founder of
the Theodore Cummings

The Argut
U.S. in Warning
Not to Question
Israel's Credentials
(JTA) The position
taken by the "Non-Aligned
Movement" to deprive
Israel of its credentials in
the United Nations General
Assembly met with a sharp
rebuff and a warning from
the U.S. that such action
would have "the gravest
consequences" for the
"future of the United
Nations itself."
The "Non-Aligned
Movement," in a communique
from New Delhi on Feb. 13, urged
member states to vote against
accepting the credentials of
Israeli delegations at the next
meeting of the UN and its
specialized agencies. That action
was similar to the declaration of
the Islamic summit conference
held in Saudi Arabia last month.
The non-aligned countries form a
majority in the UN. If member-
states accepted the New Delhi
communique, Israel could be
deprived of its vote in the UN.
RESPONDING to questions
u out the communique, State
Department spokesman William
Dyess said in a prepared

statement: "It is our view that
the Mideast part of the com-
munique contains a number of
absurd formulations. I will not
take them up point by point, but
I will note, so that there will be
no misunderstanding on the part
of anyone, that any challenge to
Israel's credentials in the UN
General Assembly would be
illegal and a violation of the UN
Charter. As you know, member-
ship questions are dealt with not
by the General Assembly but by
the Security Council."
The U.S. "would oppose any
such challenge in the firmest and
most vigorous way," Dyess said.
"Such action, if it is pressed,
would have gravest consequences
for U.S. participation in the
General Assembly and for the
future of the UN itself. Our
strong hope is that reason will
prevail. If not, those who support
this course will" have to live with
the consequences of their actions.
In other words, we will oppose
any move from any quarter to
expel Israel from any inter-
national body and, most ex-
plicitly, from the UN."
Dyess declined to spell out the
"grave consequences" he
mentioned or to outline U.S.
views beyond what was con-
tained in his statement.

Day of Hunger Strike for Sharansky
The month of March marks the fourth an-
niversary of the arrest of Anatoly Sharansky, a
Soviet Jew who was a member of the Helsinki
Pact Monitoring Committee and a refusenik who
wanted to live as a Jew in Israel. For these
crimes," he was sentenced to 13 years in a Soviet
To protest his arrest and imprisonment, the
South Florida Conference on Soviet Jewry is
sponsoring a one-day hunger strike on Thursday,
March 19. Participants are asked to show their
solidarity by wearing a badge stating, "I am on a

available at 576-4000, extension 291.
"Man in Search of God" is the theme of this
year"s celebration of International Men's Club
Sabbath, sponsored by the National Federation of
Jewish Men's Clubs and its 400 affiliated men's
groups. The observance will take place April 3
and 4.
The National Federation's affiliated clubs,
encompassing some 40,000 members, are located
throughout the United States and Canada, and
the organization maintains close relationship with
the members of the Conservative movement and
with men's groups in South America, England,
Israel, and Europe.
As in every year. Men's Club Sabbath is
scheduled to take place on Shabbat HaChodesh,
two weeks before Passover.
With concern for the fact that "one in ten teen-
age girls in the United States becomes pregnant,
placing in jeopardy her hie as well as the life of
the infant," the B'nai B'rith Women Executive
Board has called upon President Reagan and
Secretary of Health and Human Services Richard
Schweiker to "seriously consider the impact of
proposed budget cuts or abolishment of federally-
funded sex education programs and family
planning clinics."
The 50 Executive Board members, assembled
from across the United States and Canada for
their semi-annual meeting in Washington,
pointed out that the Office for Family Planning
and its Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Programs
have been providing federal assistance to 5,100
family planning clinics serving about four million
women each year, including teen-agers.
Expressing concern thatn these programs will
be either abolished or severely curtailed through
budget reductions, the women noted that 80
percent of sexually active teens do not use
contraceptives, increasing the danger of veneral
Burton S. Levinson, chairman of the National
| Conference on Soviet Jewry, has announced the
appointment of Constance Smukler of the Soviet
Jewry Council of Philadelphia, and Dr. Seymour
Lachman, chairman of the Greater New York
Conference on Soviet Jewry, as co-chairpersons
for the NCSJ's 1981 Policy Conference in New
York City opening tyay 31.
Levinson described the conference aa of
I "critical importance" because of "possible shifts
in the Soviet Union," aa well aa evolving U.S.
policy towards Moscow."
Returning from a tour of ORT's Latin
J American program, Joseph Harmatz, director-
general of the World ORT Union, said that "there
is an increasing desire on the part of South I
American Jews to intensify their links with
Judaism and to give a Jewish education to their
He noted a growing movement to provide full-
time Jewish education for children and said that
enrollment in ORT's own schools in Argentina
was nearing the 8,000 mark. In several countries,
including Argentina, ORT is involved in the
provision of technical, creative and Jewish
education at all levels in Jewish day schools.
ORT schools in Latin American countries are
complemented by a growing number of technical
programs, he said, covering farming, industrial
process computers, electronics and mother-and-
child care.
Deborah Heart and Lung Center, in
cooperation with the Government of Poland and
through arrangement with the medical schools in
Poland, will begin a program to provide pediatric
cardiac surgical treatment at the Center in
Browns Mills, N.J., to children living in Poland
requiring that service.
The formal signing of the agreement and an-
nouncement of the inauguration of the program
will take place March 24 at the Warwick in
The program was developed because of the
large number of children in Poland afflicted with
cardiac disorders coupled with a shortage there of
physicians trained in pediatric cardiac surgery.
As part of the program, Polish physicians and
medical personnel will have the opportunity to
observe Deborah's procedures in pediatric cardiac
Fifteen national Jewish organizations are
cooperating in preparing the American Jewish
Community for the eight-hour ABC-TV movie-
epic. Masada, to be telecast the evenings of April
5 through 8.
Masada was a famous fortress on the west
shore of the Dead Sea where Jewish patriots made
their last stand in the war against Rome. The
name of the fortress has since become a symbol of
Jewish heroism that fires the imagination of the
Jewish people.
Through the inter-agency effort, educational
guides have been prepared to take advantage of
the educational opportunities that the drama
offers. The effort was coordinated by JWB, the
American Association of Jewish Education,
American Zionist Youth Foundation, and Jewish
National Fund.
"The Reagan administration's proposal to
consolidate education funds into two block
grants, one for local education agencies and one
for state education agencies, will hurt yeshivos
and other non-public schools," is the conclusion of
a study of the budget recommendations of the
Reagan administration by the Office of Govern-
ment and Public Affair of Agudath Israel of
America, directed by Rabbi Menachem Lubineky.
According to the study, "the return to the
block grant system poses the danger of reverting
back to the days when states and local education
agencies would not mandate a fair share of
education funds to the non-public schools."

man, a visiting professior of
psychology from Haifa Universi-
ty in Israel, during Quarter III
on the University of South
Florida Tampa campus.
"This is not a course designed
for the Jewish kids, Arnade
said. "They should already know
about what happened. This is a
class for exposure something
everyone should know."
The course features films, ten
guest speakers and visits from
three survivors of the Holocaust.
Hofman will lecture several
times throughout the term. He
previously taught the course in
Haifa, Israel.
"I'm trying to describe the
Isocial and psychological con-
ditions that made it possible for
i a person to be an aggressor and
what kinds of effects it (the
Holocaust) had on the victims,"
Hofman said.
Classess begin March 30. For

NBC Defends Mideast News Coverage
Television news report-

attack from some members
of the Long Island Board of
Rabbis last week when
senior NBC News executive
producer Lester Crystal
addressed the group about
a Jewish reporter's ob-
jectivity in covering Israeli

charge of political coverage and
special programs for the network,
first visited Israel in 1972 and
produced a special on the Middle
East in 19T5 entitled. Rabin and
Sadat Peace or War' He was
quick to defend his network's
coverage and pointed out that
since Egyptian President .Anwar
Sadat opened a dialogue with
Israel, access to some of the Arab
countries has been greatly in-
creased. As a result, be said, the
Arab side is for the first time

In addressing the question of
the Israeli settlements. Crystal
said that NBC did show the dis-

but that it did not have "too
much impact because there was
no conflict. But because there is
conflict about the settlements on
the West Bank a lot more at-
tention is paid to it-"
Crystal said that because his

feelings from how we should

In terms of Middle East
stories. Crystal said that his own
visits to the area have gi\ en him
some knowledge of the countries
and that he occasionally has an
opportunity to provide some in-
sights and guidance" on some of
the stones from there He said he
has never been accused of not
understanding the other side just
because he is Jewish As a matter
of fact. Crystal said that because
he is Jewish he has gone out of
his way to make sure that the
other side of the story is
adequately covered
THE FACT that Sadat has
now helped to open some of the
Arab nations to American
television has made the Israelis
"uncomfortable. They had had
the platform all alone for years.
In dealing with Israeli officials. I
have had to explain to them that
there has to be equal treatment
and that they are not going to
have the floor to themselves."

In discussing his production of
the 1975 NBC program on the
Middle East. Crystal said it was
to be the first time in which the
heads of government in Israel
and Egypt appeared on the same
program together, even though
both were to be interviewed
separately He said that although
the interview with Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzihak Rabin was
filmed without any difficulty,
there was a question about the
interview with Sadat. Not until
NBC reporter John Chancellor
threatened to leave Egypt and
scrap the show did Sadat agree to
the interview. Crystal said
though he is Jewish he had no
problem with Egyptian customs
or wkh meeting any Egyptian
officials during his negotiations
with Egyptian authorities
regarding the interview. And
Crvstal confessed that he "did
not feel inhibited by my
Jewishness ."
That program, he noted, was a
forerunner to the amazing inter-
views between Sadat and Begin'
on American television. Crystal
said he believes that there was
virtual diplomacy" conducted
on the airwaves'" and that it may
have hurt the diplomatic process
because there was too much of it.
Crystal noted that NBC once
had a Jewish bureau chief in
Israel and that the Israeli
Government did not treat him
ufferently. once having him
detained because his news crew
photographed an area of the
West Bank that was off-limits.
And he said the bureau chief
did not find that he was placed
under any undue pressure
because of his religion.
Reagan Administration has
pushed the Middle East onto the
back burner to await the outcome
of the Israeli elections this
But late in the year it will be
in the forefront and it will be one
of the first serious foreign policy
tests the Reagan Administration
will have. Crystal said. He
speculated that the big issue
would be over the sale of bomb
racks and other military hard-
ware to Saudi Arabia for its
American F-15 fighter planes.
.Asked whether he believes the
presence of television cameras
nMkx an event out of a non-
event. Crystal said he believes
this happens less today than in
the past. He pointed out that his
crews are instructed never to
stage an event and not to cause
attention to be drawn to
themselves. We will also not put
something on the air if we believe
that it was staged for television."
"Television does not have a
megaphone effect good or
bad." Crystal added. .And when
we put something on the air. we
make every attempt not to
exaggerate what happened.
Excesses are brought about by
competition If one station has
something good, there is a
tendency to give it more at-
tention than it normally
deserves. And that applies to
local television news more than
network news."
