The Day of Yom Hashoah, Day of Rememberance
The observance of Yom
iHashoah, Day of Remembrance
lof for the Six Million Jews of the
holocaust, began in Tampa with
Ithe Mayor's proclamation
Ideclaring the week of April 26
Ithrough May 2 as Days of Re-
Imembrance of the Victims of the
lllolocausf. It ended with the
I Yom Hashoah Memorial Service
I held Tuesday evening, May 5, at
Ithe Jewish Community Center
under the sponsorship of the
Community Relations Committee
of Tampa Jewish Federation.
Judge Ralph Steinberg, chair-
man of the Holocaust Memorial
program, presided at the service.
Participants included Rabbi
Frank Sundheim, Rabbi Leonard
Rosenthal and Rabbi Martin
Sandberg and Cantor William
Hauben. Also participating were

Francois Mitterrand is
determined to try and
iprove Franco-Israeli re-
lations, adopt a more
Dalanced French policy in
[the Middle East and try to
[stem West European
[initiative on the subject for
|the time being.
Sources close to the 64-year-old
[Socialist, who Sunday inflicted a
Smarting defeat to outgoing
'resident Valery Giscard
Id'Kstaing, said he plans to
implement all his pre-electoral
Hedges. These include a halt to
lllie shipments of enriched
uranium to Iraq, a reevaluation
[of French arms sales to the Arab
[countries and the extention of
[official invitations to the Israeli
resident and Premier to visit
MITTERRAND'S first official
[function Monday, after he
[returned to Paris from his
[country home at Chateau
Chinon, was to visit the grave of
[his lifelong friend, Georges
Dayan, at Montparnasse Jewish
[cemetery. The Jewish senator,
[who served as Mitterrand's main
contact with Israel and the
Jewish community, died two
years ago, during the 1974
electoral campaign, which
placard won. Day an was slated
for a senior cabinet post.
Mitterrand is expected to
lassume his presidential function
on May 25 when he will appoint a
caretaker government, dismiss
.the National Assembly and call
for new parliamentary elections
in the hope of winning a friendly
majority in the house. The care-
taker government will probably
include several Jews and several
of Israel's best known-friends,
such as Marseilles Mayor Gaston
Deferre, who is expected to
become Vice Premier, Jewish at-
torney Robert Badinter, slated to
become Attorney General, and
economist Jacques Attali,
mentioned as the probable next
Elysee Palace chief pf staff and
main presidential adviser. Both
Badinter and Attali are board
members of France's central
Jewish welfare fund, the FSJU.
Simultaniously, the Socialists
will start negotiations with the
Communist Party to reach a
basic electoral agreement for the
legislative elections expected to
take place next month. Mitter-
rand was elected with the help of
five million Communist voters,
and he will need the Communist
Party's active help if he is to win
a friendly majority in the house.
FRANCE'S 1958 constitution
promulgated by Gen. De Gaulle
would practically paralyze the
President, unless he wins a
majority in the Chamber of
Deputies now ruled by the center-
right parties which backed out-
going President d'Estaing.
Many here fear that Mitter-
rand's need for an active Com-
munist support might force him
to moderate his pro-Israeli views.

Both Sides Appear to be Holding Fire
Premier Mena-
chem Begin disclosed in the
Knesset Monday that he
had ordered the Air Force
11 days ago to attack
Syrian SAM-6 anti-aircraft
missile batteries in eastern
Lebanon and indicated that
he would not hesitate to
order an air strike again if
the Syrians refuse to re-
move the missiles.
Begin said the planned attack
was delayed first by bad weather
and then by a personal letter
from President Reagan urging
Israel not to take any action until
all diplomatic means to resolve
the crisis are exhausted. Begin
described Reagan's message as
"one of the friendliest letters
received by an Israeli govern-
ment from an American Presi-
dent in recent years" and implied
that its tone convinced him to
exercise restraint for the time
VETERAN U.S. diplomat
Philip Habib, Reagan's special
representative, arrived here from
Damascus on his mission to de-
fuse the situation and avoid an
Israeli-Syrian confrontation. Re-
ports from the Syrian capital
indicated that Habib made little
headway with President Hafez
Assad. Most Israeli officials have
said they have little hope that the
missile crisis can be resolved
In his political statement to
the Knesset, Begin described the
extent of the deployment of
missiles in Lebanon. He said
there are presently 14 anti-air-
craft batteries in that country
and on the Lebanese-Syrian
border. One of them, a SAM-6
battery, is operated by Libyan
soldiers, Begin said.

A Settlement 'Without Settlers'
The Tampa Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal Campaign
supports Israel projects such as
Moshav Eidan in addition to thi
local services made possible by
the local campaign.
From the hills surrounding
Jericho, the topography drops
sharply to the Arava, Israel's
southern plains.
The rutted, one-lane road that
winds past the Dead Sea Works
makes an abrupt left turn into a
landscape of rock and sand and
silence. A few kilometers ahead a
crudely painted white arrow
points the way to Moshav Eidan.
The scene is ghostly. A chain-
link fence topped with barbed
wire surrounds squat house
clearly a 1 Hump of function over
esthetics each with a living
room, kitchen, and two bedrooms
compressed in 72 square meters.
A kindergarten, social hall, and
store stand next to a planned
medical and dental clinic. Nearby
is the site for a swimming pool.
There are no people. Only the
wind and footsteps disturb the
silence. Moshav Eidan is a settle-
ment without settlers.
Thirty young families from the
United States and Canada were
scheduled to establish a com-
munity here in June of 1979. But
deep cuts in the Jewish Agency's
rural settlement program
funded by Keren Hayesod cam-
paigns the world over, and by
United Jewish Appeal-Federa-
tion campaigns in the United
States have delayed oc-
In addition, the prolonged wait
in temporary housing caused a
crisis in commitment among
members of the group. Only half
of the families originally
recruited for Moshav Eidan re-
main in the Arava. The others
have moved into Israel's cities or
left the country.
The settlers of Moshav Eidan
are not idle while they wait to
establish themselves in their new
home. While living at Mercaz
Sapir, the regional center for the
Arava, the families receive in-
tensive agricultural training from
government experts and veterans
of the moshav experience, and
study Hebrew in an Ulpan.
At the same time, an ab-
sorption committee is actively
seeking new families and screen-
ing applicants to replace the
"drop-outs" from Moshav Eidan,
and a planning committee strug-
gles over priorities and the
details of implementing future
goals. An agricultural study
group is translating technical
materials from Hebrew to
English and holds weekly ses-
sions on the practical lessons
learned in the fields.
The long journey of the garin
(settlement group) begin in
Toronto in the Spring of 1978.
With the held of shlichim (aliyah
emissaries in American and
Canadian cities) and under the
guidance of a representative of
the Moshav Movement, the
families gathered to form a new
agricultural settlement.
Only married. Jewish immi-
grants from an English-speaking
country were considered and
"mixed couples" Israelis
married to Americans or
Canadians were encouraged to
participator Meetings and work-
shops were held to introduce the
settlers to one another and to
moshav life.
The families made the arduous
trip to Israel only to run head-
long into a first of may financial
setbacks caused by a runaway
national economy and reductions
in funds available for the pro-
gram from the Jewish Agency
The settlement's economic
difficulties were further agrra-

vated by what has proved to be
the high price of peace with
Egypt. Massive dislocations in
the defense and civilian sectors
mandated by the Israel-Egypt
peace treaty squeezed spending
for settlements such as Moshav
Eidan even tighter as funds were
diverted to dismantling settle-
ments in the Sinai, establishing
new settlements in the Negev and
Galilee, and meeting other
government and private sector
expenses necessitated by peace.
As weeks of delay lengthened
into months, one half of the garin
abandoned the project. As Mimi,
one of the founders of the group
in Toronto, puts it:
"There was a lack of common
ideology and purpose which
would have helped us through the
long summer of waiting and
working. And most of us had no
earthly idea of the physical
reality of farming."
Her husband Bruce adds:
"There has been a process of self-
selection, which is probably
inevitable in a project like this.
The families who have stayed
really want to be here."
Thirty adults and their 15 chil-
dren who remain have been
toughened by their experience,
but remain optimistic and en-
thusiastic. Driving to the fields in
the gray dawn, Bev looks out
over the desolate landscape and
"Look at this ... all this
sand. It's had to believe that
anything is growing here at all. I
can't help it. Whenever I look at
this and think about what we are
accomplishing, well, it's pretty
Bruce joins a group kneeling in
the damp sand to cut small
windows in the plastic "mini-
greenhouses" which protect the
spring crop of watermelon plants
from the cold nights.
"We may not be in our per-
manent homes yet," he says,
touching the green sprouts with a
grin, "But the land is ours."
"I came here to build some-
thing out of nothing," adds
Bonnie, another Moshav Eidan
settler. "I can't do that in Winni
peg or Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. I
can only do that here."
At 8 a.m. a group of women
arrives to begin harvesting the
rows of rich purple eggplant.
Arna, a former Brooklynite,
pauses to doff her sweatshirt as
the sun breaks through gathering
clouds. She rubs perspiration
from her forehead, leaving a
streak of sandy soil behind, and it
is easy to believe she gives voice
to the dreams of all of her fellow
moshav pioneers when she says:
"This is the most fulfilling
and craziest thing I've ever
done. You've got to be a little
crazy to come here, with the heat,
the isolation, the 14-hour days in
the fields. But in 10 or 15 years
I'll point to the grass, the trees,
our fields and say to our children,
None of this was here when you
were born!'"
"Like the song says," she
adds, "We came to Israel to
build, and be built."

A Visit With Lilli Kopecky

r through the channels in
,el and Germany to find him. I
mted to shake his hand. Before
levision and newspeople found
[it about him.
d could find no record of his
ne. We know that there were
cases filed against him".
se are the words of inmate
8482. an Auschwitz inmate
< survivor. These are the
lords of Lilli Kopecky, today a
biting professor lecturing on
i Holocaust at Emory Univer-
tv in Atlanta.
[The SS man of whom she
aks was a guard who accom-
her daily into the crema-
.j where ashes, dirt and
jiatever were swept up and put
,o urns and sold to German
.nilies as the remains of their
leir loved ones. It was Mrs.
bpecky's job to type the names
[the Germans and the dates of
leir birth and death on the slip
hich were put inside the urns.
"We swept up whatever was
lound." she said, "There were

e jars which were sold to the
nans. Rut the authorites

bay for the families to pay the
kernment for the 'return of the
hes' of their loved one."
iVhv does she want to thank
SS guard? "One night I told
i that I wanted him to help me
\ie lives and I had a plan where
eiy night he would take me to
pharmacy (supposedly to
sh the windows). Underneath
rags in my pail was a list,

Lilli Kopecky was in Tampa to
Iress the Yom Hashoah serv-
Isponsori'd by Tampa Jewish
Herat ion. She was selected as a
aker not for the experiences
I encountered, but for her cre-
|tials as a lecturer on the Hol-
ust. She is completing a one

explained, "In Israel there
pommittees galore. The dlf-
*e between our committee
lhe others is our work
against Neo-Nazism and anti-
Semitism. We feel that we owe it
to our dead fellow inmates to
fight the revisionists all over the
world." Mrs. Kopecky lost her
first husband at Auschwitz and
upon returning to her former
home after the war town she
married Mr. Kopecky.
Interestingly, that was not his
name until after the war. His
name was Alexander Fried. The
only other member of his family
to survive was a sister who had
taken the Kopecky name. With
only each other, he thought they
should have the same name, so he
changed his name to Kopecky,
Mrs. Kopecky sits up very
straight in her chair as she begins
to tell the story of Alexander
Kopecky during the war. He was
taken to a Hungarian Jewish
forced labor camp. One day the
order came down the Germans

cers, not the soldiers, but the
"They transported them to the
Eastern front, put them into
German uniforms and sent them
out to walk across the mine
fields. My husband was used

As she continues Mrs.
Kopecky's voice drops.
"Somehow he survived this and
during a battle, with the Ger-
mans behind them and the Rus-
sians in front of them, he gave a
signal to some of his fellow pri-
soners to jump into the snow. A
German officer behind them
raised his gun to shoot them, but
a Russian officer in front of them
shot the German before he could
The Czech officers from the
Hungarian-Jewish forced labor
camp, in German uniforms, ran
over to the Russian soldier to
surrender. He said he was going
to send them to Siberia with the
German prisoners taken that
day. They would be sent away
with the men they had just
escaped from!
When they could not believe
their ears, the Russian explained.
"I have no way of knowing who
you are. I saw what you did and I
saw the German about to shoot
you. But I would have killed him
The group of 12 men went to
the Siberian labor camp for pris-
oners of war. And through
another fluke a message was sent
to Moscow to the Czech Embassy
that there were former Czech
officers in this camp. Embassy
officials secured their release.
A television show in which
Mrs. Kopecky just appeared is
considered by her one of her
greatest triumphs. It was
arranged two weeks ago that she
would debate Arthur Butz (the
Northwestern professor who
authored a book stating that the
Holocaust did not occur) by
During the program Mrs.
Kopecky claims she yelled at Dr.
Butz that he was a liar, that his
book was a lie, that he was calling
the Congressional Record a lie.
"He said he did not want to listen
and he hung up," said Mrs.
Kopecky. "Following that
program I received calls from
New York, Miami and all over. I
was feeling very good."
All of this came from a charm-
ing lady who looks like she
should be making delicious
strudle instead of lecturing on the
Do you notice my limp?" she
asked? That is from the time
when the American planes would
fly over the air fields and eight
women had to pull a plane into
the woods and camouflage it.
Later we had to pull it back. If it
was a bomber, we had 16 women
pulling the plane."
Tuesday night Lilli Kopecky
spoke at the Yom Hashoah serv-
ice. The room was warm, it was
hard to hear; but two things the
audience heard very well. 1)
Forty years ago, the world was
silent to what was a happening.
2) Today the same things are
being said once again.
This time is anybody listening?
Bill Jackson Named
Israel Bond Manager
Bill Jackson, Sarasota, has
been named Area Manager of
State of Israel Bonds for West
Cenral Florida. The communities
included in this area are Orlando,
Lakeland. Tampa, Clearwater,
St. Petersburg, Sarasota,
Bradenton, Fort Myers and
Jackson replaces Sol Kirsh-
haum, who has been named
Manager of Israel Bonds in
Memphis, Tenn.
Bill Jackson is no stranger to
this area. Beginning in 1975, he
assisted in the Tampa Israel
Bond Office, and ran campaigns
in ail of the above communities.
In 1979, he was asked to assist in
the Palm Beach County Israel
Bond Campaign and watched the

Record Sales for Bonds
The Israel Bonds Organization here reports cash
sales of $7 million in bonds sold during the first four
months of 1981. This represents a 14.7 percent in-
crease over the same time period in 1980, and the
Bonds Organization expects to sell more than $20
million worth of bonds, securities and notes in South
Florida in 1981.
The current year 1981 is the 30th anniversary of
the State of Israel Bonds Organization, and it is sig-
nificant that record sales are achieved at this time.
Israel Bonds are a major instrument in promoting
Israel's industrial and agricultural progress and are
sold in the United States, Canada, Western Europe
and other parts of the free world.
Despite high interest rates and unfavorable eco-
nomic conditions in the United States and other
countries where Israel Bonds are sold, friends of
Israel continue to express their support by pur-
chasing substantial amounts of four percent bonds
and other instruments.
In addition to Jewish community support, the
1981 figures show an increase of participation in the
non-Jewish community. Purchased by banks, em-
ployee benefit funds, labor unions, insurance
companies and other institutions demonstrated their
confidence in Israel's economic future and the im-
portance which they attach to reinforcing the eco-
nomic foundations of Israel as a stronghold of
democracy in the Middle East.
Such confidence can not come at a more critical,
and welcome, time.
Literacy and Freedom
It is no secret that the nation is gripped in a crisis of illiter-
acy. High school graduates, and even graduates of colleges and
universities, are reported to be incapable of reading, writing and
speaking properly or effectively.
It was therefore a welcome surprise that the National Coun-
cil of Teachers of English, the National Association of Ele-
mentary School Principals, and the U.S. Postal Service teamed
up to co-sponsor a National Letter-Writing Week.
The focus? The trio of sponsors urged people to consider the
importance of writing letters to the editor in expressing their
own opinions or in suggesting how the media might more ef-
fectively help shape the opinions of others.
Posters featuring a picture of Ed Asner, the distinguished
character actor who portrays Lou Grant in the TV series of the
same name about a crusty bot warm-hearted city editor of a
major American newspaper, urged: "A letter to the editor is
democracy in action. Get in the act and write."
Postmaster General William F. Bolger, co-chairman of tha
observance, and the other sponsoring organizations have done a
service in reminding the nation that literacy is at the root of our
freedom as a people.
Jewish Cemetery Desecrated
PARIS (JTA) The Jewish cemetery of Bagne-
on the outskirts of Paris was desecrated on the eve of ti
French "Deportation Day" when ceremonies are held to
commemorate those who diedin Nazi concentration camD
in World War II.
Eighty gravestones in the cemetery were daubeo
with swastikas and slogans, such as "Death to Israel "
"Death to the acid-throwers," and "Revenge for the
attack." The last two slogans referred to an attack on a
neo-Nazi who lost his eyesight after alleged Jewish acti-
vists threw acid in his face.
Most of the slogans on the gravestones were signed
Federation of European Nationalist Action (FANE), the
outlawed neo-Nazi organization, and bore the organi-
zation's insignia.
The International League Against Anti-Semitism
and Racism called on the country's next Administration
to take all possible steps to prevent similar attacks from
taking place.
Begin Ought to Know Better
a biblical man in the most pro-
found sense of the word. He
believes in the rebirth of the
modern Slate of Israel as the ful-
fillment of.- J:..;e imperative.
What seems to turn people off
in Begin is his inclination toward
preachment. But even that is
biblical, and if people don't lute
it. then they say a lot about
themselves reckoned in terms of
their religious quotient.
Still, it is no news that people
don't like preachment. Look at
what happened to Jimmy Carter,

IT SHOULD therefore be no

the ancient Hebrew prophets.
Begin simply gave voice to what
others have been saying all along.
But Israel's Prime Minister is
not everybody. He travels a road
far more exclusive and lonely
than most other people. He
simply can not permit himself the
luxury of spouting off at the
mouth whenever it is likely to
suit his fancy.
Consider his most recent pro-
nouncement: "Every German
should be ashamed of their

Peace Forest for Beatles' John Lennon
News out of Tel Aviv has it
that Israeli children, with the co-
operation of Arab young people
are planting a "John Lennon
leace Forest" in the mountains
of the Galilee region in memory of
the 40-year-old Beatle who was
gunned down in Manhattan last
Dec. 8. The idea for the memorial
according to press reports, came
from a group of Orthodox Jews
who emigrated to Israel from the
United States.
This proposal manages to
make a coherent response to
cynics who displayed inability to
grasp the core significance of the
Beatles when a troubled Mark
Chapman used a gun to write
finis to the life of a talented
musician. The project serves also
to bring our attention back to the
real and symbolic grandeur of
planting thousands of trees in
Israel, a cherished enterprise
associated indelibly with the
ewish National Fund.
here: Young Israelis, aware of the
magic of the Beatles' songs
honor the most creative of this
circle of musicians not by erect-
ing a monument of stone or plac
jng a plaque in an odd corner of
Israel, but by giving young en-
thusiasm and a tender touch to a
living memorial.
To that venture they attach
the name, Peace, and as partners
in their enterprise they invite
Arab youths in a shared concern
for rearing peace in an area so
long despoiled by gunfire,
violence, and terrorism. Let those
who scoff at homage paid to
I.ennon and his Beatle brothers
l>e reminded that Hebrew trans-
lations of the musicians' lyrics
have long been top favorites of
many Israelis.
And what was the nature of the
denigration of John Lennon and
his associates in the hours
following his death? "Lennon
promoted nonsense, narcotics
nudity, and noise," wrote one
metropolitan newspaper
columnist. "He wast just a hap-
pening of meat and bones." And
an embittered associate professor
brought in the verdict, with more
care for grammar than for
Justice, that John Lennon was
responsible for hundreds of

Community members were
very vocal about their gratitude

the Seder celebration. "The co-

"When you have godly people,
the cooperation is always there,"
she said.
"Nice" isn't enough of a word
for what he's done for us," Mrs.

A special commemoration was
made during the freedom festival

in Soviet Russia and Ethiopia.
Saying that the community was
"repeating a service 3,000 years

special prayers for Jewish

I attended the May 1 Yom
Hashoah Service at Hillel School.
After services, with the dimming
of lights and the blare of whistle,
the Synagogue was transformed
for a brief time of remembrance,
for a commemorative candle-
lighting ceremony that included
both faculty and students. Poems
were read, a special Kaddish was
said and a one-act play of the
Warsaw Ghetto was performed.
I felt moved and impressed
as a mother of two students at
Hillel (fourth and eighth grades)
I was very impressed by the sen-
sitivity taught to the students.

A short, but simple Hebrew
phrase which expresses so much

responded with actions not words
and with new found financial
support to the center. The mem-
bership committee this year was
indeed the community and their
response was the answer to our

"Center Support Day" and each
time we have asked you to
respond to the call of the center
you have answered favorably and

leaders. He visited Israel five
times during the last 10 years
and conferred with Israel's Labor
leaders on innumerable occasions
at the International Socialist
Conferences which both parties
attend. He served in 11 minister-

His last post was Attofttey

Canal to international shipping.
After running, and losing, in
the 1968 presidential election
against De Gaulle, he devoted
himself to the reconstruction of
the Socialist Party. From that
time on, he found himself in close
personal contact with dozens of
Jews who, since Leon Blum's
1936 Socialist Premiership, have
traditionally flocked to the
country's left-wing parties.

show that a majority of France's
400,000 Jewish voters backed
Mitterrand. A splinter Jewish or-
ganization, "Jewish Revival"
had actively campaigned for an
anti-Giscard "Sanction Vote,"
and many of Mitterands Jewish
supporters had campaigned in
favor of the Socialist challenger.
Mitterrand's victory might
change a 23-year-old French tra-
ditional pro-Arab policy in the
Middle East. Gen. De Gaulle,
upon his rise to power in 1958,
started a process of loosening of
formerly close Franco-Israeli ties.
He imposed an arms embargo on
the eve of the Six-Day War. His
two successors, Georges Pom-
pidou and Valery Giscard
d'Estaing, continued this policy
and even gave it additional
Under Giscard d'Estaing's
presidency, this pro-Arab ten-
dency became even more
dominant with France increas-
ingly supporting .the more ex-
treme Arab lines. Since the Camp
David agreeme'nls, which
Giscard failed to support,
relations with Egypt's President
Anwar Sadat have become
strained. Giscard invariably
aligned himself on the side of the
Gulf states and Saudi Arabia,
which he visited last March, and
until his rift with Libya over the

Peres Replies in Debate
Labor Party Chairman Shimon Peres in debate with
Prime Minister Begin, implied that the entire Israeli
policy in Lebanon suffered from lack of defined purpose. It
was up to the Christians to decide what kind of Lebanon
they wanted but Israel should not fight in their place.
"Will the IDF fight instead of the Lebanese army?"
asked Peres, "and will this war be limited against the
Syrian and not against the Moslems of Lebanon? War is
no little thing, and we should not commit ourselves to a
path of generalizations and euphoria which has no clear
definitions with limitations."
Peres mocked Begin's tendencies for superlatives,
quoting such statements as "the happiest day in my life,"
which he made following the difficult Ismailiya talks with
Anwar Sadat in 1978, or the "excellent talks" he held with
President Jimmy Carter. Peres questioned the wisdom of
declaring that Israel intended to order the Air Force to
strike in Lebanon in the open forum of the Likud con-
vention. "Who needed the specifications?" asked Peres.
Peres concluded the speech turning to Begin: "this is a
serious period for the people and the State. Lift yourself
up, don't return to become the leader of the Motorcycles

up to the Christians to decide
what kind of Lebanon they
wanted but it was not up to Israel
to fight battles for them.
"Will the Israeli army fight
instead of the Lebanese army?"
he asked, "and will this war be
limited against the Syrians and
not against the Moslems of
Lebanon? War is no small
matter. We must not commit
ourselves to a path of generaliza-
tions and euphoria which has no
clear definitions or limitations,"
Peres declared.
Peres also questioned the wis-
dom of declaring, as Begin did to
a Likud forum last night, that Is-
rael intended to launch its air
force against the missiles in
Lebanon. "Who needed the
specifications?" he asked, ad-
ding: "This is a serious period for
the people and the State." While
the Knesset debate continued in-
to the evening, it was apparent
that there will be no joint reso-
lution when it ends.

Begin addressed a bitter mes-
sage te President Hafez Assad of
Syria, as "from one enemy to
another." He demanded that
Assad refrain from brinkmanship
and warned that if Syria does not
remove its missiles from Le-
banon, Israel will not tolerate
their continued presence.
Begin implied that there was a
national consensus on the
I.rlianon crisis when he quoted
Labor Party chairman Shimon
Peres as saying that if diplomatic
efforts fail to get the missiles
removed, the use of military force
should not be excluded. Peres,

BEGIN RENEWED his bitter
personal attack on Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt of West Germa-
ny. Referring to Schmidt's ac-
tivities during World War II,
Begin described him as "a good
officer in Hitler's army." He said
he had no way of knowing if Sch-
midt had been a member of the
Nazi party, but'Ve never broke
his oath to Hitler.- '
Begin noted that Schmidt had
fought on the Eastern front
where the main destruction of
European Jewry occured. "The
army might not have done the
actual killing, but they
surrounded the towns to preserve
order while it was being done,"
the Israeli Prime Minister said.
Now, he observed, Schmidt is
allying himself with Saudi Arabia
which has called for a holy war
against Israel and gives millions
of dollars to the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization.

Jewish Advertising Contributes
To Marketing Success
Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese is commemorating the
100th anniversary of the product. The centennial celebration
was launched on Jan. 27 in New York City, the home state for
both the origin of cream cheese and the trademark Philadelphia.
At that time, top quality food products often originated in or
were associated with that Pennsylvania city and became known
as "PhiladelphiaQuality."
Originally adopted in 1880 by a New York distributor, the
trademark Philadelphia Brand for cream cheese and its special
manufacturing process were later acquired by the Phenix Cheese
Company which merged with Kraft in 1928.
Advertising has contributed importantly to the brand's
marketing success for many years. The earliest ad still on file is
one from 1923 headlined: "Two New Cream Cheese Salads Suit-
able for A Good. Satisfying Supper." This ad was executed in
Yiddish by Joseph Jacobs Organization which still works with
Kraft in developing meaningful advertising for Jewish con

largest cheesecake which was entered into the Guinness Book ol
World Records. They hope you will enjoy the centennial cheese-

Begin Ought to Know Better
Continued from Page 4-A
Suzuki would hardly agree.
He sees our insistence upon
curbing Japanese auto imports,
together with our demand that
Japan continue to limit its high-
technology exports to the Soviet
Union at the same time that we
unilaterally lifted our grain em-
bargo to the Soviets, as threaten-
ing to his country's well-being.
He sees American policy in the
Pacific as returning to the double
standard of punitive and ar-
bitrary dictation against ex-
cellence. He sees it as protection-
ism in the name of American
productive mediocrity.
WHETHER OR not, in reality,
the problem is life-threatening to
Japan in the same way as, say,
the new French and German
policy toward Araby is life-
threatening to Israel, or the Rea-
gan Administration's proposed
sale of AWACS to Saudi Arabia
is life-threatening to Israel, re-
mains a matter of point of view
however "objectively" one
may personally believe that the
threat to Japan is hardly in the
same category.
Still, the parallel is effective if
only because it affords a clear
study in contrast between the
way in which Prime Minister
Ikgin and Prime Minister Suzuki
have reacted to a sense of danger.
There is no point in speculating
how Suzuki spoke to President
Reagan in the privacy of the
white House during their meeting
last week, say, whether or not he
lost his cool. We will never know
except as a matter of conjecture.
On the other hand, the Begin
pronouncements on the various
and sundry wickednesses of Gis-
card d Kstaing and Helmut Sch-
midt will remain beyond the
realm of speculation forever. The
world press took care of that by
reporting with sanctimonious de-
light his pronouncements in
every aspect of their gruesome
and gory detail. Apparently, the
world press does not create
enough opportunity of its own to
humiliate Israel. Prime Minister
Begin had to give it yet another
Prime Minister Begin: biblical scholar
IN THIS regard, one may join
Mr. Begin in arguing that "diplo-
macy be damned." One may
declare, in extolling his virtues
;as a politician, that Mr. Begin
was honest, spoke his mind and
refused to resort to dissembling.
But so, too, are children honest.
So, too, do children speak their
mind in their experiments with
cruelty or self-destructive
behavior as they challenge the
adult world.
I suggest to such persons that
they read the Prophet Nathan
who delivered God's message to
the people of Israel that they
need no king, that they must not
become just another nation like
the nations who were their neigh-
This proposes that the Prophet
understood that there is a very
special language reserved for the
business of international govern-
ment. By its nature, the language
is duplicitous, wicked, immoral.
But that is the language, and to
speak another would therefore be
to speak jabberwocky. By failing
to communicate, it would
threaten the very survival of the
government which the specialized
language is intended to preserve.
FOR THIS reason, the people
of Israel were implored not to

Libyans to murder opponents ol

Fischer, reminded that Presi-
dent Reagan has frequently
publicly labeled the PLO as
"terrorist," refused to comment
on whether the U.S. considers the
Libyans more terrorist than the
PLO. Instead, Fischer said, the
PLO information office was a
different matter.
He said it was registered with
the Justice Department as a for-
eign agent. As long as the PLO
office complies with all U.S. laws
and is staffed by Americans or
resident aliens, it has the pro-
tection of the First Amendment,
Fischer said. He said he did not
know whether the Libyans would

French Leaders
Gave Giscard List
Of Ten Demands
long for such a government or for
such a language. The people of
Israel, the Prophet was in-
structed to say, already have a
King, whose dominion is the
Kingdom of Heaven. Earthly
kings and puny nations, in pur-
suit of their puny and earthly
purposes, must perforce act in
immoral ways not favorable in
the eyes of God. This, warned
Nathan, is what God wanted Is-
rael to avoid.
In our own time, Nathan not-
withstanding, Israel has chosen
the way once embarked upon by
Saul, when Israel refused to heed
the prophetic warning to begin
with the way of secular rule
and therefore perforce of
duplicitous government and
armies and war and material
Arguing further in this biblical
vein, one might suggest that if
Israel is to be a light to other na-
tions, it must not be a nation at
all, and Prime Minister Begin,
the biblical scholar, knows all
this better than anybody.
MR. BEGIN might sit back in
these hours and feel justified that
the defeat of Giscard d'Estaing
as President of France on Sunday
is a sign that his preachment
was right. Or that the clobbering
on Sunday that the opposition
Christian Democrats handed to
Helmut Schmidt's party in West
Berlin spelling trouble for him
ahead is also a sign.
Nonsense. Both defeats in both
countries involved domestic po-
licies and can not be interpreted
as justification for what Begin
did. For him to continue to insist
upon Israel's nationhood at the
same time that he demands the
right to act as if Israel is not a
nation as if Israel is entitled to
spurn the rules of nationhood
as if Israel today chooses the
road urged upon it by Nathan is a
delusion more dangerous for Is-
rael than any other it may have
to face on some unnamed battle-
field in the days ahead.
Besides, what does he offer as
an alternative to the working
relationship between Jerusalem
and Bonn, Jerusalem and Paris]
however bitter these relation-'j
ships may have become? No rela-
tionship? That would be folly too
profound to consider.
PARIS (JTA| A delega-
tion of the Representative
Council of Major Jewish Organi-
zations in France (CRIF), on the
eve of last Sunday's presidential
election, submitted a list of 10
demands, mainly concerning
Israel and French foreign policy
in the Middle East, to President
Valery Giscard d'Estaing.
Alain de Rothschild, president
of CRIF who led the delegation,
said that a similar list of
demands was also presented to
the opposition Presidential
candidate, Socialist leader
Francois Mitterrand.
included a promise on the part of
the candidates to close the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
bureau in Paris, a halt to the sale
of arms to Arab countries and an
end to the supply of enriched
uranium to Iraq.
Other demands included a
pledge to invite the Prime Minis-
ter or President of Israel to pay
an official visit to France and to
follow this up with a visit to
Israel by the President of France;
a full disclosure of the results of
the investigation into the
bombing last October of the Rue
Copemic Synagogue in Paris;
and the status of teaching about
the "horrors of racism" in public
state-controlled schools that was
initiated after the synagogue
This is the first time in French
history that a representative
Jewish group has taken such a
public stand on the eve of nation-
al elections. Seven of the 10
demands dealt with Israel and
the Mideast and only three with
local Jewish issues.
SUCH OPEN lobbying is not
traditional in France, and some of
Giscard's Jewish backers warned
that it might backfire. The Presi-
dent's official spokesman said,
however, that Giscard assured
the CRIF delegation that he had
"never done anything which
might have endangered Israel's
Giscard, the spokesman added,
also recalled that socialist leaders
have attended numerous PLO
demonstrations and meetings at
which the government was not
represented. The President also
said that "high level exchanges
of visit" could be considered after
the elections.
Socialist Jewish backers were
also skeptical about the CRIF
initiative, saying that even if
Mitterrand favored some of the
demands or most of the demands,
it might look awkward if he were
to accept them less than a week
before the May 10 vote.
THE CRIF decision to submit
the 10 demands was taken imme-
diately after the first election
round, Apr. 26, at a meeting
attended by some 35 CRIF
The CRIF meeting with
Giscard came at a moment of re-
newed Franco-Israeli tension
following Israeli Prime Minister
Menachem Begins sharp accusa-
tions levelled in Tel Aviv against
France and West Germany.
Begin accused Giscard and West
German Chancellor Helmut Sch-
midt of being motivated "only by
their search of profits in selling
arms to the Arabs and buying
cheap oil" from them.
Government spokesmen,
whether representing the Quai
d'Orsay or the President's office,
refused to comment, but election
campaign aides accused Begin of
trying to influence the election
mtcome in France. Some aides,
who refused to be named, accused
Begin of involvement in French
nternal affairs. Giscard's
Sectoral spokesman, former in-
brmation Minister Jean Phillipe
Lecat, commented: "As far as I
know, Mr. Begin does not vote in

Ex-British Fascist Heads 'Historical Institute' in LA
(JTA) The head of a
nghtwing "think tank"
disseminating what it calls
"scholarly evidence" that
the Holocaust was a Jewish
myth is a former British
neo-fascist who edited anti-
Semitic and racist publica-
tions in England before be
coming a resident alien ii
the U.S. in 1978.
Lewis Brandon. 29, director of
the Institute for Historical Re-
view in the Los Angeles suburb
of Torrence, was identified by th
Board of Deputies of British
Jews as William David Mc-
Calden, a former member of
Britain's neo-fascist National
The Board of Deputies, which
Pott Shows
Likud Catching I
Up with Labor
represents the Jewish community
in the United Kingdom, provided
documentary evidence of
McCalden's identity and activi-
ties to the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nair B'rith at the
agency's request, according to
Russell Chandler, Religion
Writer of the Los Angeles Times.
The present whereabouts of
McCalden, alias Brandon, are un-
known. Chandler reported.
HE LEFT the state apparently
to avoid a law suit by Mel
Mermelstein, 54, a Los Angeles
businessman and Holocaust
survivor. Mermelstein, who saw
his mother and two sisters taken
to the gas chamber at Auschwitz
in 1944, is suing the Institute for
Historial Review for the $50,000
it offered recently to anyone who
could prove that at least one Jew
was put to death in the gas
chambers during World War II,
and for $17 million in damages.
Material provided by the
Board of Deputies of British
Jews showed that McCalden was
born in Belfast and was a writer
and editor of anti-Semitic and
white supremicist tracts. He de-
fected from the National Front in
1975 to help form the National
Party which espouses "British
racial nationalism.''
He is married to a U.S. citizen.
Russell reported that it was now
known exactly when McCalden
came to southern California and|
became associated with the Insti- J
tute for Historical Review where
he was paid $22,000 a year.
THE INSTITUTE is directly
associated with the far right-wing |
rabidly anti-Semitic and racist
Liberty Lobby, a Washington-
based pressure group headed by
Willis Carto. Carto s German-
born wife, Elisabeth, is treasurer
of the Legion for the Survival of
Freedom, the holding corporation
for the Institute for Historical
Review and Noontide Press.
The latter is a Carto publishing
enterprise which puts out ultra-
conservative and anti-Semitic
books. Liberty Lobby also pub-
lishes Spotlight, a weekly that
has carried sensationalized ar-
ticles claiming that the Holo-
caust was a hoax.

(JTA) The ruling Likud
and the opposition Labor
Alignment are running
neck to neck, according to
the latest opinion poll pub-
lished in the Jerusalem
Post. Each party would win
41 Knesset seats if the elec-
tions were held tomorrow,
the poll found.
The figures, according to the
Modi in Ezrachi Applied Re-
search Center, which conducted
the poll for the Post, showed an
acceleration of the swing towards
Likud which has been evident
since the beginning of the year.
The poll, conducted among
1,245 adults during the last days
of April and first days of May,
showed another important
finding: The number of "don't
knows" is now declining. Only 24
percent refused to state a prefer-
ence to the pollsters this time,
compared with 31 percent a
month ago. This indicated that a
high proportion of "don't knows"
were swinging to Likud.
THE FIGURES for the other
main parties were: National Reli-
gious Party, 9; Aguda bloc, 6;
Telem, 4; Tehiya, 3; Civil Rights
Movement, 2; Shinui 1; others,
13. The 41-41 Likud Labor tie
compared to 35 for Likud and 46
for Labor one month ago; 33-45
in March; 22-52 in February; and
20-58 in January.
The pollsters found that Likud
supporters tend to be lower-in-
come and lower-educated than
the Labor supporters. There is a
preponderance of Oriental voters
among the Likud ranks while
many Ashkenazim tend towards
The pollsters also found a
continuing trend towards
hawkishness,, with 75 percent of
those questioned favoring
continued settlement on the West
Bank. The pollsters reported a
feeling that Labor's policy
alternatives, both on the eco-
nomy and on foreign affairs, were
not clearly defined in the minds
of many voters.

years, he only formally converted
this past year. His Bar Mitzvah
is the first by a male convert at
Congregation Rodeph Sholom.

began to ask questions about
Judaism. "A friend of a friend,
Allison Frank, gave me a book to

name Rabbi Ron Wise on Cape
Cod and Rabbi Joe Levine in
Rochester, N.Y. There was a
professor at the Rochester Insti-
tute of Technology, Elihu Weber,
who taught the History of Jews
and Hebrew.
Robert holds a master'd degree
in Photographic Science and En-
gineering from the Rochester In-
stitute of Technology. With his
two brothers he has a photo-
graphy company, Production
Group Associates. Each brother
specializes in a different field.

Sandberg in the Tampa Bay.

with Cantor Hauben with some
extra help in Hebrew from
Miriam Moskowitz. Now that
