U.S. Aid to Israel
To Stay the Same
(JTA) The Reagan
Ariministation's revised
austerity budget submitted
to Congress keeps Israel's
total aid for the next fiscal
year at the current year's
level, but military
assistance to Egypt is
almost doubled for the
coming year.
While U.S. assistance to Israel
and to voluntary agencies in the
United States for the resettling of
Soviet Jews is being slashed
more than half, financial assist-
ance to the United Nations for
Palestine Arab refugees is to be
increased and in the next fiscal
year will be more than 13 times as
much as oil-rich Saudi Arabia's
contributions to those Arabs.
AS HAD been previously
made known to Congress, Israel
will get $1.4 billion in military as-
sistance in the fiscal year
beginning next Oct. 1 and $785
million in economic assistance for
a total of *2.2. billion, the same
as this year. ',
Egypt will get $900 million in
military aid plus $100 million
from the 1979 peace package, or a
total of $1 billion. During the
current year, Egypt is getting
$550 million in military aid.
Egypt's economic supporting as-
sistance is to be $750 million
apart from the estimated approx-
imately $300 million in other
economic programs, including
Food for Peace. Thus Egypt's
total package is almost equal to
Israel s for the first time.
Jordan is to get $50 million in
military credits and $20 million in
economic assistance, and
Lebanon $5 million in economic
aid and $15 million in military
support in the new fiscal year.

Federation Campaign Dinner, Apr. 4
Cocktails, dinner, dancing and
a gala evening are in store for
those attending the 1981 Tampa
Jewish Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign dinner on
Saturday evening, April 4, at the
Host International Hotel.
The $1,000 and over family
giving minimum event begins
with cocktails at 7:30 p.m.,
followed by dinner and dancing
at 8:15 p.m. Reservations are
being accepted by the Tampa
Jewish Federation office and the
cost of the black tie-optional
dinner is $30 per plate.
A highlight of the evening
promises to be an address by
Congressman Jack Kemp. Kemp
who has appeared on the covers
of Time and Newsweek has been
a leading proponent for the State
of Israel and Soviet Jewry. Now
in his sixth, two-year term in the
United States House of Repre-
sentatives, Kemp was formerly
the pro football quarterback for
the San Diego Chargers and the
Buffalo Bills. Prior to Kemp's
appearance in Tampa, he will
have recently returned from a
trip to Israel and the Middle
East. Kemp has been the
recipient of numerous awards
including the Emil Rubenstein
Award for Meritorius Achieve-
ments in Behalf of ihe Cause for
Soviet Jewry: Sound the Shofar
for Freedom Award for Soviet
Jewry; and the Human Rights
In addition to meeting and
hearing Congressman Kemp, the
guests will have the opportunity
to meet Yael Dayan, daughter of
Moshe Dayan, Israel's former
Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Goldie Shear, Campaign Vice
Chairman of Special Events, and
her Dinner Committee have
worked diiegently to make this
year's annual campaign dinner an
outstanding one. "This is a
wonderful opportunity for all of
us to enjoy a social evening
together and to show our
strength and support for our 1981
Campaign. If you have not made
your reservations, I encourage
you to do so", Shear stated.
THE NEW budget cuts aid t
Israel for helping Soviet Jew
from $25 million in the Carter
Administration's budget to
$12.5 million in the new fiscal
year. The Reagan austerity
budget chops it to the $12.5
million figure for the current year
a recission of half the allocated
For support to voluntary
agencies in America that help
resettle Soviet and other Eastern
European refugees the amount
put for this year is $9.6 million
compared with the $24 million al-
located in the Carter budget. For
the new fiscal year the amount is
lowered to $9 million. The State
Department administers the re-
settlement funds for Israel and
the Department of Health and
Human Services handles them
for the American agencies.
Three Die in Fire
people died and four were injured
in a fire which gutted a shoe
factory on the fourth floor of a
factory and workshop building in
the center of Haifa. Survivors
said a "massive blaze" broke out

workers were trapped under the
ceiling which had collapsed. Fire-
men said that about 300 people
had been in the building on Herzl

Two Lose Citizenship
Fedorenko, Osidach Get Thumbs Down
(JTA) Federal district
court judges in Philadel-
phia and Fort Lauderdale,
Fla. have stripped U.S.
citizenship from two
Ukrainian-born men who
had lied about their partici-
pation in Nazi concentra-
tion camps during World
War II in order to gain
admission into the United
In the U.S. District Court here,
Judge Louis Bechtle ordered that
Wolodymir Osidach, a 76-year-
old retired Philadelphia
slaughterhouse worker, be
denaturalized. In Fort Lauder-
dale, Judge Norman Roettger
issued a denaturalization order
for Feodor Fedorenko, 73, of
Miami Beach, who was accused
of concealing his role as a
Ukrainian guard in the Treblinka
concentration camp.
ROETTGER reversed his 1978
ruling in favor of Fedorenko
following a 7-2 decision by the
U.S. Supreme Court Jan. 21 that
the government had only to
prove that Fedorenko had bed
about his past when he entered
the U.S. in 1949 and did not need
to prove that he had participated
i in the beating and shooting of
Jewish prisoners.
In a Philadelphia case, Osidach
was tried in a non-jury civil
action here last fall. He was
accused of concealing his role as
an officer in the Ukrainian police
force, a force which actively
helped the Nazis send Jews to
their deaths, in order to enter this
country in 1949 and later to
obtain citizenship.
"We are very, very pleased
with the decision," said Neal
Sher, deputy director of the U.S.
Justice Department's Office of
Special investigations who
prosecuted the case, according to
a report by David Gross, news
editor of the Philadelphia Jewish
SHER NOTED that the
Osidach case was the first such
case his department had handled
from the very start.*"Once Judge
Bechtle's opinion is final, once
the defense has exhausted its
appeals, we will move to have
Osidach deported," he said.
Osidach will certainly appeal
the decision, defense attorney
Louis Konowal indicated. "What
the court did was to attempt to
justify the government's pro-
secution and substantial ex-
penditure of money by ordering
denaturalization of Mr. Osidach
on some vague theory which took
the court in excess of 110 pages
to bootstrap and justify," Kono-
wal said in a prepared statement.
"The court's conclusion is clearly
The defense attorney warned
that this decision, along with the
Supreme Court decision on
Fedorenko, should serve "notice"
on "Jews and gentile alike, who
were in an untortunate predica-
ment of attempting to survive
under Hitler's occupation of their
homeland, that they are subject
to denaturalization and depor-
tation solely because of their
either active or passive involve-
ment in any organization, either
voluntarily of even as a member
of an underground organization."
OSIDACH, like Fedorenko,
entered this country under the
Displaced Persons Act. He swore
at the time that he had worked as
a dairy technician in the Ukrain-
ian village of Rawa Ruska during
World War II. Later he admitted
to having been a member of the
Ukrainian police. He insisted,
however, that his only function
had been that of an interpreter.
In his written opinion, Judge
Bechtle said that the evidence
presented at the trial proved that
Osidach was a police officer who
commanded other police officers
in the Nazi-led and Nazi-
I organized Ukrainian police force.

The March meeting of the evening chapter of Women's
American ORT was an especially interesting one for those
members in attendance. Malka Werde, the wife of Rabbi Yakov
Werde (of the Chabbad House at the University of South
Florida), is quite knowledgable in her own right on Jewish
custom, spoke of "The Laws of Family Purity and the Mikva".
Malka is always an enthusiastic and charismatic speaker. Then
following the talk ORTists enjoyed viewing and purchasing
varied and beautiful lucite items provided by ORT member
Sandy Schaffer, who sells these lucite items at home and
organization parties. In addition, everyone enjoyed some deli-
cious refreshments and just plain ole' socializing. It was a most
interesting and delightful monthly meeting.

B'rith Hillel Foundation is taking
applications for its highly praised
annual summer program in
Described by one student last
summer as "the greatest expe-
rience of my lifetime," the
program offers college students
seminar tours, studies, and an
international student encounter.
The program begins June 18
with a two-week cross-country
seminar-tour highlighted by
special briefings and cultural
events designed to give partici-
pants an understanding of the
history of modern Israel. The
formation and development of
Israel will be "relived" through
visits to important sites and
meetings with key people both in
and out of government.
In Jerusalem, they will visit
such places as the Mount of
Olives, the Old City, the Knesset,
Mount Scopus, Yad Vashem, and
Meah Shearim: in the Negev,
they will tour the Judean desert,
the Dead Sea. Qumran. Massada,
Beersheva, Ashkelon; in the
Galilee, they will take in Lake
Kinneret, Tiberias, Capernaum,
Beit Shearv Safed. the Carmel
Range. Lochamei Hagetaot (the
Ghetto Fighter's kibbutz).
Nahariyah, Caesarea, Haifa, and
Acco; in the Tel Aviv area,
Rechovot, the Weizmann
Institute. Petach Tikva. Tel Aviv
University. Old Jaffa and
The students will travel on a
special, chartered bus.
Following the tours, there will
be four concurrent month-long
seminars in Jerusalem. Par-
ticipants may select one of the
following: "Jews and Arabs,"
"Modern Jewish Thought and
Practice." Political Culture and
Ideology" and "Archeology of
Rabbi Stanley A. Ringler,
director of community affairs for
Hillel, said "Each of the seminar
programs is designed to expose
students to all expressions of a
particular theme. Pertinent
people, places, movements,
institutions, events and ideas will
be explored as each theme is
developed over the four weeks."
Lectures are scheduled for each
morning, with afternoons and
evenings set aside for site visits
and meetings with people impor-
tant to the further understanding
of the subject matter.
For instance, students taking
the course on "Jews and Arabs"
will study the historical exper-
ience and current relationship of
those people living together in
Israel. This will include the cul-
tural, intellectual and social
implications of the two Semitic
communities interacting upon
I each other for more than 1,500
years. Students will meet with
members of both communities,
visiting their major cultural,
religious and political institu-
tions and consulting with their
respective leaders.
The seminar on "Modern
Jewish Thought and Practice"
will probe the varieties of
Judiasm, the ideas and institu-
tions of contemporary religious
movements in Judiasm, and the
thought and practice of ethnic
and religious Jewish subcom-
mittees which constitute modern
Israel. Students will visit settle-
ments and neighborhoods which
express those different principles
and meet with outstanding
religious leaders and thinkers.
The course on "Political
Culture and Ideology" will
consider the ideological move-
ments and political parties which
have given birth to the rich
political life of Is real. Students
will meet with key political
figures at the Knesset and
Those studying the "Archae-

into the development of the state
from Biblical times through the
period of the Second Temple and
the Great Revolt. They will visit
relevant sites at Jericho, Gezer
and Jerusalem and may make an
extended visit to a current ar-
cheological dig.
The program will wind up with
a week-long international student
institute, "Israel the Idea and
Israel the Reality."
Special arrangements can be
made for extended stays for
personal travel.

About Anti-Semitism
As the news snowballs of growing anti-Semitism
in the United States and around the world, the
American Jewish Congress has issued a study which
suggests that "claims of a 'wave' of anti-Semitism in
any part of this country do not seem justified."
If true, this is a welcome note of relief from the
stern warnings being issued by the other Jewish
defense agencies to the contrary. It is not that the
AJCongress is unaware of the many cases of anti-
Semitic acts committed'against Jewish persons and
Rather, the agency is saying that despite these
acts, there is a "low estate of anti-Semitism in the
United States. In all sectors of American life,
anti-Semitism has become shabby, disreputable and
Whether or not we agree with the AJCongress'
findings, it is good to be optimistic about such
characteristically pessimistic things. Indeed, who
will deny that cries of anti-Semitism can of them-
selves contribute to a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy?
Optimistic or not, the agency would not have us
reject out-of-hand the warnings of the other Jewish
defense organizations to the contrary. Cautions the
Congress: ". the trauma of the Hitler period does
not allow us to feel entirely secure even in free and
enlightened societies."
Given such a conditional conclusion about anti-
Semitism in America today, we can only hope that
maybe the study has hit on something after all.

Little Eagle Bordeaux, great-grandson of Chief
Crazy Horse who deteated Custer at the battle of

Little Eagle, who may become chief of the Sioux
nation someday, has a Jewish mother and is attend-
ing a Hebrew school in Seattle. He comes from a
family that has for several generations believed that

According to UNIFIL. two Le-
banese soldiers were also
wounded. Haddad's group
claimed the 30 Lebanese troops
who moved into the southern
region were harassing villagers
for alledged collaboration with
I he Christian forces and with Is-
rael which supports Haddad's
militia. Haddad accused UNIFIL
soldiers of acting in concert with
the Lebanese.
HADDAD VIEWS the south-
ward movement of the Beirut-
controlled Lebanese army as a
threat to his authority and
warned that he would shell them
if they did not retire. Israel said
that it was maintaining a close
watch on the situation in south
Lebanon after reports from the
region that the Beirut troops
were actually Syrians in Leba-
nese army uniforms.
Israel, meanwhile, denied a
Beirut report that its artillery
had joined in the shelling of the
Lebanese force.
At the United Nations in New
York, UN Secretary General
Kurt Waldheim asked the Securi-
ty Council to "meet in urgent
consultations" on the latest
clashes in south Lebanon.

Then, there is Mr. Reagan

And as a footnote to all ofthb
there is the creationist movement
for public schools already well on I
its way with the first step taken
in Arkansas the other week to
require teaching the biblical
account of creation as an antidote
to Charles Darwin's theories on
the origin of the species.
IN THIS regard, one must
observe that President Reagan
has already lent his support to
this kind of medieval funda-
mentalism when he recently
observed that he is not at all surt
that he believes in Darwinian
theory anyway.
And so, the President weaves
his way through all these dev-

hardly be accurate to say that he
is the absolute source of every bit

The Yahoos have after all been

they might ultimately have had

has done is to give them an offi-

suddenly and impulsively, only
to lapse into periods of sullenness
and withdrawal, interrupted by
occasional discourses on future

In public his image was very
different. He would stand for
hours on end in uniform and
jackboots, his right arm out-
stretched, as Wehrmacht units
and Nazi party formations
marched past an astonishing
feat of physical endurance.
All this made Hitler seem
highly enigmatic. Werner Maser,
author of Adolf Hitler The
End of the Fuhrer Legend, now
claims to have solved the riddle.
It is an extremely confident
claim, but Maser is not a man to
make claims he cannot back up.
HE HAS already established a

and Supreme Commander of the
Wehrmacht, as he was from 1933
to 1945.
Part II of the book analyzes
Hitler's youth and earlier career.
So did Hitler change after coming
to power in 1933? Maser says
that he did not.
He quotes a diary entry by
Goebbels in 1945 complaining
that the Fuhrer seemed to be
living with his head in the clouds.
To which Maser adds the
comment that Hitler had always
had his head in the clouds.

Passover is A Time
For Family Unity
Of all Jewish holidays,
Passover, more than any other,
draws Jewish families together
and recalls othe history of their
It's a time when relatives from
far and near 'come home" for the
reading of the Haggadah
(literally, the "telling" of the
Exodus of the Jews from Egypt
into Israel more than 3,000 years
ago) and for the seder meal a
meal of symbolic foods and of
tradtional family favorites.
At Passover each spring,
special Jewish customs arouse
children's curiosity and encour-
age their participation in the
seder, the Passover home service.
For example, the service calls for
breaking a matzah and hiding it
for the children to find. The child
who finds the matzah piece, or
afikomen, receives a gift. Also,
songs add to the merriment of the
occasion, not only for the
children, but for all the family
But amid the fun and good
food. Jews are reminded of the
true meaning of Passover and
what its observance represents.
The eating of matzah, or un-
leavened bread, is done in re-
membrance of the departure of
the Hebrews from slavery in
ancient Egypt. Their exit was so
hurried that there was no time for
the bread baked for the journey
to rise.
Bitter herbs (maror) symbolize
the bitterness the Jews felt
during their Egyptian slavery. A
special ground mixture of apples
and nuts (charoset) represents
the mortar the Jews used in their
manual labor under Egyptian
rule. And the salt water used at
the seder table stands for the
tears shed during their bondage.
"Passover is a time when Jews
throughout the world, whatever
their cultural backgrounds,
gather with their families to
recall the ancient deliverance and
apply it to the present time," said
Edward Cohen, co-producer and
writer of "Passover," a special
half-hour documentary film. The
program, hosted by Edward
Asner and produced by the Mis-
sissippi Center for Educations'
Television, can be seen on the
Public Broadcasting Service
(PBS) at 7:30 p.m., Saturday
April 11 on WUSF-TV Channel
16 and on WEDU-TV (Channel 3)
Sunday, April 12 at 3:30 p.m. It
was funded in part by the Meyer
Crystal Foundation of Jackson,
"Passover is about freedom,"
says Cohen, "a freedom from evil,
not only the ancient evil of
Pharaoh and his slavery, but the
newer face that persecution wears
in every generation."
The film emphasizes that
Passover is an "on-going" ob-
servance, a "living history." Suf-
fering, oppression and perse-
cution didn't end with the escape
from Egypt.
"Throughout history," said
Cohen, "the Jew has faced
prejudice, exile, genocide, but de-
liverance has always come, and
the Jewish people have survived.
This is the living history that is
celebrated each year at Pass-
Israel represents this modern,
on-going deliverance a haven
from persecution. Therefore.
Israel figures prominently in
Jewish faith and practice,
because it represents this
promised refuge for all Jews,
regardless of their country of
birth. Israel is important to Jews
everywhere, because the aspi-
ration to "return to Israel,"
whether literally carried out or
supported in spirit, is inherent in
Jewish life.
In the documentary, scenes
filmed on location in Israel
supplement the American seder
and illustrate the similarity of
Passover observance among
Jews from around the world. But
even though the seder service is
basically the same everywhere,
each Jewish family injects its
own customs and traditions, its
own formality and informality,
into the holiday observance,
thereby giving it unique
"Passover" is a documentary
designed for a general audience of
Jewish and non-Jewish viewers,
young and old.
"No person or group is guaran-
teed freedom," says Cohen, "it
can easily be taken away. The
freedom that Passover commem-
orates is precious, and the holi-
day's meaning apllies to
Before Passover, a Yemenite woman grinds the
wheat that will- be used to make matzah. The
wheat is cleansed of any impurities, and the
dough must be carefully handled so as not to rise.
Matzah is unleavened bread and is eaten at Pass-
over to commemorate the departure of the
Hebrews from slavery in ancient Egypt. Their
exit was so hurried that there was no time for the
bread baked for the journey to rise. A special half-
hour documentary film on the Jewish holiday
Passover, hosted by Edward Asner, can be seen

said Allen's reply "was tan-

moral concerns of religious
leaders who represent the
broadest range of political
persuasion in the religious com-

significant constituency whose
concerns the signers represent. I

The signers of the letter to
Reagan include the president or

president of the Southern Baptist

gregations, and Rabbi Jerome
Malino. president of the Central
Conference of American Rabbis.

human rights violations wherever

"In this statement, however,
we are particularly concerned
about nations where the United
States has extensive economic,

TEL AVIV Israel Tele-

Peres had earlier met with a
brother of Jordanian King
Hussein in London. Peres, who
has returned to Israel from a five-
day visit abroad, declined to
comment on this report.
The television report said that
Peres, who arrived in Morocco
and met with Hassan alone,
outlined his Labor Party's "Jor-

The reduction in quality of educ-

in a mass exodus from the public
school system. In essence,
parents will sacrifice whatever
they must to get their children
out of a school system reduced to
multi-lingual baby-sitting, not to
teaching. (Nowhere does he say
that the condition would change
given that there were no exodus.)

Poll Shows Dayan Would
Hold Balance of Power
TEL AVIV (JTA) The latest public opinion poll
showed that former Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan would
hold the balance of power in the formation of a new coal-
ition government if he entered the election race at the
head of a party of his own. The results of the poll,
published in the Jerusalem Post, indicated the political
situation that would emerge if elections were to be held
now instead of on June 30.
IT SHOWED a slight drop in support for the Labor
Alignment 43.5 percent, down from 48.6 percent in the
January-February period and a slight gain for Likud,
*'hich would win 20.6 percent of the vote, up from 16.9
|percent in the last two months.
The poll indicated that a list headed by Dayan would

HITLER WAS a man of
sudden visions, not a decisive,
coolly planning statesman such
as soldiers admire. His secret was
his unpredictability.
Maser quotes two instances of
state criminality, the enthansia
program and the final solution of
the Jewish problem, in which
Hitler gave the orders but left
their execution to others.
It was as if he was showing the
responsibility away from himself
on to somebody else. The Fuhrer
did not want to hear about the
Maser shows that this style of
leadership made the issuing of
written orders for the final
solution an impossibility.
The decision to eliminate all
Jews in German-occupied
countries came in a secret con-
versation with Heinrich Him-
mler. SS Reichsfuhrer.
With strict institutions to
secrecy, Himmler was assigned
thesk of carrying out the final
speak washed his hands of the
horror on the act. He wanted to
hear no more about it.
But he knew perfectly well
what he was doing, as his answer
to Field Marshal Keitel proves.
Keitels enquired about rumors
about the murder of Jews.
Hitler told him this had
nothing to do with the Mehr-
macht. and he did not want to
involve it in the matter. A
revealing admission!
The idea that Hitler was for a
long time completely ignorant of
the final solution is naive.
Himmler would never have
dreamed at that time, November
1941, on starting such a major
action without the Fuhrer's
MASER PAINTS a picture of
a man who had dreamed of being
a Bohemian artist, who had
always hated regular work and
was therefore incapable of
governing properly.
Historical circumstances and
an era in which the former ruling
elite was disoriented, brought
him to the top, as well, of course,
as his remarkable gift for
swaying the masses and in-
fluencing people.
Maser"s approach and con-
clusions are new and persuasive.
His book will cause controversy,
especially among those who have
attempted to whitewash Hitler

Sexology Seminar Slated for Haifa
The Jewish role in the development of the
cience of sexology will be but one item under dis-

lather in Jerusalem for the 5th World Congress of

Dr. Zwi Hoch, head of the Center for Sexual

If Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rambam Medical
[enter, and a gynecologist on the Technion
Faculty of Medicine, is organizing the conference
"or the World Association for Sexology, and will
erve as president of the congress in Haifa.
Subjects to be covered range from current con-
epts of sexual counseling and therapy, and sex
ducation in the 80s, to issues such as sexology
nd law, sexual variation and deviancy, child
abuse, homosexuality, morals and religion, family
planning, and others.
Jrutfuayan police have uncovered an anti-
emitic group in Montevideo that alledgedly fire-
pmbed a synagogue on Duranzo Street, stoned
the headquarters building of Uruguay's Jewish

Tvastikas on many sites in the South American
pital city.
Jacob Kovadloff, director of the South Amer-
an Office of the American Jewish Committee,
as welcomed the action of the Uruguayan police,
rle added the hope that it might be "the first of
pther such crackdowns in South American coun-
tries where Jewish institutions have been the

answer to that question will highlight the Critical

The conference, expected to attract rabbis and

A- Haggadah for'CnrTsTians published ktst uu
}y the Anti-Defamation League of BiiiFiVrtUr
and the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago was so
well received that it has been reissued for the

According to Theodore Freedman, director of
ADL's national Program Division, more than
25,000 copies of "The Passover Celebration A
Haggadah for the Seder" have been sold since its
issuance. He attributes the book's popularity to
the growing number of Christians in all deno-
minations who either conduct seders for them-
selves in their own homes or partake in interfaith
observances. "By repeating what Jesus, as a Jew,
experienced in observing the Passover with his
disciples, his modern followers hope to gain
greater understanding of the roots of Christian-
ity," Freedman said.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
SHEMINI On the eighth day of their consecration, Aaron
and his sons offered sacrifices for themselves and the people, at
Moses' command. Then Moses and Aaron came out of the tent
of meeting, blessing the people. The glory Of God appeared; a
fire from Heaven consumed the burnt-offering on the altar. At
the sight, t ik' people criediout and fell on their faces. Nadab and
Abihu, Aaron's sons, offered "strange fire" on the altar; a fire
issued forth and devoured them. Aaron held his peace.
The priests are commanded not to drink wine or strong drink
when entering the tent of meeting "that ye may put difference
between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and
the clean" {Leviticus 10.10).
The portion details the laws describing cleanliness and un-
cleanliness in regard to the eating of animals, fowls, and fish.

upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by P. Wol'man
Tsamir, sis. published by Shengold. The volume is available at 75 Maiden
