Peace Plan
Ehrlich Terms Saudi Plan a Turning Point
I Deputy Premier Simcha Ehrlich
has described the Middle East
peace plan proposed by Saudi
I Arabia as a turning point,"
noting that "this is the first time
I this country (Saudi Arabia)
[speaks of Israel's right to exist."
IHut. he added, despite this "we
should not be too excited. It is
|not a new plan and its aim is to
j about the end of Israel" by
adual stages.
Ehrlich offered this view at the
first meeting of the new Cabinet
hich he chaired in the absence of
remier Menachem Begin who is
tioning in Nahariya. He was
eferring to one of the eight
oints in the plan which called for
uaranteeing the rights of all
ates in the area to "live in
peace." The plan, which was pro-
posed by Saudi Crown Prince
Fahd in an interview with the
official Saudi News Agency last
week, did not specifically refer to
Israel by name. The plan also did
not mention the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir, who briefed the Cabinet on
the plan, was highly critical of it.
In an interview in Yediot Ach-
ronot he said there was nothing
new in the plan. "Even the
implied Saudi willingness to
recognize Israel is not new," Sha-
mir said. "The plan and all its
details are dangerous to Israel.
We rejected it in the past and we
reject it now."
Leaders of the Labor Party re-
jected most of the points in
Fahd's plan but welcomed the
part which spoke of the right of
people in the region to live in
>eace. Party chairman Shimon
Peres also told Yediot that the
plan "includes one new element-
willingness to reach peace with
Israel. The other points, such as
Israel returning to its 1967
borders, establishment of a Pal-
estinian state and dividing Jeru-
salem (with East Jerusalem as
the capitol of a Palestinian state)
are old proposals and it is incon-
ceivable that Israel will accept
them." He added that "dictating
preconditions will only block
peace. The Saudis should know
what Israel can and cannot
accept. Their conditions are un-
Former Premier Yitzhak Rabin
also told Yediot that the Saudi
plan must be rejected. "But
Teen Toga Swim Party Set for August 9
"It will be a great night!"
|8teve Fisch, chairman of the
[Tampa Jewish Teen Council
[Committee said, describing the
[Toga Swim Party planned for

all the teens to have fun, find out
about USY, BBG, AZA, Young

that we're reforming.
"We expect 200 or more 9th to
12th graders. It is open to all
Jewish Teens (Senior Highers) in
the Tampa area."
Plans are in the works for
"Best Toga" and greased water-
melon contests in addition to the

ing, and swimming. If the SCA

isms) can come, there will be a
medieval demonstration to please
D & D fans.
There is no charge for this big
teen program as the various
youth groups, JCC and BBYO
are sharing expenses. All 9th
through 12th graders are invited
to attend, wearing their swim
suits under their togas as they
enjoy the festivities Saturday,

Most of Monday's Cabinet ses-
sions were devoted to adminis-
trative matters. Ten Deputy
Ministers the highest number
ever to serve in a Cabinet in
Israel's history were ap-
pointed. Observers said the large
number of deputies, named to
satisfy the demands of Likud's
coalition partners in return for
their support, may create some
financial difficulties for Finance
Minister Yoram Aridor who re-
cently ordered a freeze on added
expenditures and personnel in the
Economists cakulated that the
10 deputies will cost some seven
to 10 million Shekels a year. This
includes their annual salaries, full
staffs with aides and secretaries,
office space and equipment. Sev-
eral deputies are already balking
at Begin's announcement last
week that Deputy Ministers will
not be entitled to use government
cars for transportation but will
have to use their
travel by taxis.

The Cabinet also approved the
establishment of the Ministry of
Tourism as a separate Ministry.
It had been previously part of the
Trade and Industry Ministry.
The Cabinet also approved that
the name of the Religious Minis-

coming UJA missions to Israel
are scheduled for the Fall! t
Janet Kass, Coordinator for
the Community Mission has an-
nounced its dates of October 11-
21; and Diane Levine, Co-
ordinator for the Young Leader-
ship Mission announced the

aspect of the current political and
military situations.
Visits are also planned to many
of the social welfare projects pro-
vided through Tampa Jewish
Federation and the United Jew-
ish Appeal.
The actual cost or minimum
commitment will be determined
by the Federation Board of Di-
rectors at the end of August.

eration, 872-4451.
I No One in the Arab World is Listening
(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
Israel's attack on Palestinian
terrorist headquarters in Beirut
July 17 which caused heavy civil-
ian casualties brought down
much condemnation on the Jew-
ish State. Even those in Wash-
ington who usually support
Israel's attacks on the terrorists
in Lebanon deplored the heavy
loss of civilian life.
There seemed to be little will-
ingness in Washington to under-
stand Israel's position that it was
the terrorists themselves, who are
chiefly responsible because of the
Palestine Liberation Organ
ization's continued policy of aim
ing at civilian targets in Israel
One who does appear to under
stand is President Anwar Sada'
of Egypt.
In an interview in the July 27
issue of May, a new weekly Sadat
created to reflect his views, the
Egyptian President said that
what Israel did in Lebanon was
an "ugly thing," but he holds the
PLO, called by him "the resist-
ance," and the Syrian army also
responsible for what is happening
in Lebanon.
"The Palestinian resistance
official who ordered the shelling
of civilian Israeli settlement with
Katyusha rockets is held just as
responsible for what happened by
me as Israeli Prime Minister
Menachem Begin, because the
decision to fire the Katyusha was
taken without consideration of
the Israeli reprisal and at the ex-
pense of the Palestinian and
Lebanese people," Sadat was
quoted as saying.
The Middle East News Agency
(MENA), in reporting on the
article, said that Sadat "ex-
plained that in this regard the fir-
ing of the Katyusha rockets led
to the killing of 400 Arabs com-
pared to four Israelis and the
woulding of 1,000 Arabs com-
pared to 30 Israelis."
Sadat went on to say that the
Katyusha rockets "will neither
liberate the Arab territory nor
solve the Palestinian problem."
He charged that the Palestinians
and the Lebanese people "are the
victims of all those who issue
irresponsible decisions in the
Palestinian resistance" as well as
Syrian President Hafez Assad.
He said they were also the vic-
tims of Israel which entered
Lebanon because Assad "gave it
the excuse to do so."
MENA noted that Egypt is re-
turning to the "comprehensive
peace which ensures a solution to
the Palestinian problem."
Of course, what we have is a
second-hand report based on the
Foreign Broadcast Information
Services, the five-day-a-week re-
port by the U.S. government of
its monitoring of foreign broad-
casts and publications.
But it is clear that Sadat is
offering a message to the Arab
world and particularly the Pales-
tinians. It is that if there is to be
a solution to the Palestinian
problem the way to achieve it is
through diplomatic negotiations
with Israel as Egypt is attempt-
ing. The tragedy is that no one in
the Arab world is listening, not
even those countries that Wash-
ington likes to call "moderate."

Rabbi Berman assumed her

We wish her well."
The Other Israeli Challenge
Editor's Note: Rabbi Jeffrey
Foust, new director of Hillel at
the University of South Florida,
was in Israel this past summer
with the Jewish Student Press
Service Israel Seminar. He shares
some of those experiences with
"Jewish Floridian" readers.
Hillel Director, USF
As we constantly read in the
press these days, Israel is beset
with terrible problems and chal-
lenges from her economy to her
continuing state of war, to bitter
internal dissension. The problems
within Israel are all too real, but
ironically in my third and most
recent trip to Israel (June 10-July
10), I felt a kind of challenge not
generally talked about: one
coming from a place of strength
in the Israeli character and chal-
lenging us in the Diaspora.
Despite all the problems and
some Israelis leaving the coun-
try, the vast majority of Israeli
Jews still seem very actively en-
gaged and committed to ad-
vancing the lot of the country.
And this community concern re-
mains strong even in the face of
increased individualism and
materialism. Israelis simply
don't stand back and let prob-
lems slide by. At times they can
carry this too far, but then there
are also others who try to check
the excesses. During the elec-
tions, some sadly even turned to
violence (physical rough-housing
and a Molotov cocktail exploded
outside the Labor Party Head-
quarters). Also at some rallies
people got carried away and
called for Begin Melech Yisrael-
King of Israel. There were many
others, however, who vigorously
stood up to condemn such ap-
proaches and election day itself
was very peaceful with over 80
percent of eligible voters voting.
This is a far cry from the barely
50 percent turnout we experi-
enced in the United States for our
last Presidential election.
Also, aa much aa we have dif-
ferences of opinion in the Ameri-
Judge Reverses Ban On
Original Nazi Propaganda
German Federal Justice Minister
has reversed the long-standing
policy of the ruling Social Demo-
cratic Party (SPD) to ban propa-
ganda material that was rife
under the Nazi regime, including
Hitler's book "Mein Kampf,"
Goebbels' anti-Jewish speeches
and the notorious anti-Semitic
newspaper "Der Stuermer."
At the same time, Justice Min-
ister Juergen Schmude said his
ministry is preparing to ban
recently published Nazi propa-
ganda material, including those
imported from abroad. He said be
is also preparing a bill that would
make it possible for state
prosecutors to charge persons
who either deny or justify the
organized murder of Jews and
other groups under the Nazi
Schmude said his reason for
reversing the SDP policy was
threefold: the amount of original
Nazi propaganda material being
circulated is relatively limited;
the trade in this material is
mainly among collectors rather
than politically-oriented groups;
the ban would create problems in
the area of scientific research into
the Nazi era.
The Minister's announcement
in an interview with the leftwing
daily Frankfurter Rundschau
surprised prominent members of
his own party, especially since he,
himself, recently reaffirmed his
support of the ban on original
Nazi material. Observers here
said that Schmude reversed the
policy as a result of pressure by
rightwing elements.
can Jewish community, our
major problem is not dissension,
but the lack of involvement and
concern by so many.
As part of the Jewish Student
Press Service Israel Seminar I
participated in, we covered the
International Holocaust Sur-
vivor's Gathering, including the
meetings of the Second Genera-
tion. It was a panel discussion of
this second generation group that
aroused me to think about the
nature of Jewish involvement in
the Diaspora.
A very eloquent young Israeli
woman greatly stirred the crowd
in a call for all second generation
survivors to make aliyah to
Israel. On the one hand, her
appeal represented the standard
short-sided Israeli vantage point
that the only place there can be
active and meaningful Jewish life
is Israel. On the other hand, there
was a lot of truth to her remarks,
particularly those directed at the
passiveness of many American
Jews towards Jewish issues and
to the way many of us only define
our Judaism vicariously through
support of Israel.
Despite all of Israel's prob-
lems, the continued active in-
volvement of her people help
insure her continued vitality The
biggest Israeli challenge is for the
Jews of the Diaspora to do the
same. It is something we cannot
leave to others. We Jews in
America, just as those in Israel,
will only thrive to the extent we
actively involve ourselves in bet-
tering our quality of life locally
and abroad, and whether in re-
gard to social political or spiritual

Very Special Person
Rebecca Wohl was a very special person. Her death this
week is a loss to Tampa.
"Beck' left her mark throughout the community not just for
her devotion and hard work, which were synonymous for Beck
Wohl, but for the gracious, ladylike manner with which she
carried out her service to the community.
National Council of Jewish Women was her pet project. As
Honorary President and a member of the National Board, she
faithfully served NCJW. No honor meant more to her than being
the recipient of their Hannah G. Solomon award.
A 25-year member of the board of the Visiting Nurses
Association, a 17-year member of the City Planning and Zoning
Board, founder of the Civic Music Association (later the Com-
munity Concerts Association), it is easy to see why in 1955 she
was named "Woman of the Year" by the Tampa American
Association of the University Women.
The United Fund budget committee, the League of Women
Voters, the Jewish Community Center, and most of all, Congre-
gation Rodeph Sholom and Rodeph Sholom Sisterhood, all
benefitted from her wit and wisdom.
Beck Wohl has left a void in Tampa.
A Difference In Perspective
The signing of the accord on the Sinai does two things
in the process of the implementation of the Camp David
agreement. Most obviously, it establishes a peace-keeping
force according to the terms of the agreement, which the
Soviets have done everything in their power to frustrate.
While the force will not be a genuinely United Nations or-
ganization, with international representation to maintain.
the provisions of the historic Israel-Egypt accord, this
may in itself be a positive outcome of the Soviet maneu-
vering and a more certain guarantee of its success. In
retrospect, the Soviets have merely assured their isolation
from the peace-keeping process, a result which both signa-
tories and the United States are likely to applaud.
The second thing that the signing of the accord does
is to set up the machinery that will have Israel cede the
last part of the Sinai in April. 1982, thus returning the
entire peninsula to the Egyptians, which the Israelis cap-
tured in the 1967 war and have occupied since then, piece-
meal most recently.
Now that the signing itself has occurred, the Middle
East comes into an even more dangerous period vis-a-vis
peace between Israel and Egypt than existed before. The
reason is rooted in the different perspectives held by the
signatory parties on the meaning of the ceding of the Sinai
in the first place.
Egypt makes no bones about its view of this final
step in the agreement. Ambassador Ashraf Ghorbal. for
example, sees next April. 1982 as the final step in the
return of Eg? to the Sinai in its entirety, a procedure
that began with the signing of the Camp David agreement
in March. 1979. He sees it as the culminating achievement
of Egypt's purposes with respect to Israel which it has
wrested from its aborted Yom Kippur War. In this sense,
Egypt is playing the role of belated victor and Israel the
role of the vanquished.
On the other hand, the Israelis see the ceding of the
Sinai as a quid pro quo on the road toward normalization
of relations with Cairo, a process that the Egyptians have
been avoiding like the plague in their effort to walk the
treacherous fence of peace with Israel and all the benefits
peace has brought them at the same time that they hope
to mend their ties to the rest of the Arab world.
It is for this very difference in perspective that in-
creasing resistance is being noted in Israel against the
final step of withdrawal from the Sinai come next April. In
short, Israel does not see the normalization quid pro quo
as having come to pass, or indeed as coming at all in the
months ahead-
While the signing of the peace-keeping agreement is a
welcome move in the direction toward the final implemen-
tation of the Camp David process, we would not be sur-
prised to see a stalling in the process itself come next
April. Israelis are not likely to want to bear the whole
blunt of the burden. They don't want to wake up and dis-
cover that they have given up the Sinai and won nothing
in return for that dear concession. Not normalization and,
therefore, not peace.
In United States
Decline of Anti-Semitism
Semitism in America has
declined significantly in the last
two decades. Today only 34 per
cent of the non-Jews in the Unit
ed States are anti-Semites
compared to 45 percent in 1964.
At the same time there has been a
decline in support among Ameri-
cans for the State of Israel since
1977. While in 1977,66 percent of
the American public felt that the
continuation of Israel is im-
portant to the U.S., only 51 per-
cent feel the same today.
These are the major findings of
a survey on anti-Semitism in the
' United States just completed by
the opinion research company of
Yankelovich, Skelly and White.
The survey was commissioned by
the American Jewish Committee
and its findings were disclosed at
a news conference at the AJC
headquarters here.
chairman of the research com-
pany, said that the baseline for
comparison with current findings
was a similar survey conducted in
1%4 by a research team from the
University of California at
Berkeley, and published in 1969
under the title, "The Tenacity of
Prejudice." The conclusion that
anti-Semitism was declining, he
said, was based on an 11-item
index thul was used in both 1964
and 1961. The national survey
released July 28 was based on
1,215 personal interviews which
included 174 Jews and 127

cline in anti-Semitic beliefs was
most pronounced in terms of tra-

percent in 1981. or that Jews "are

22 percent.)
Ruth Clark, senior vice presi-
dent of the research firm, ana-
lyzing the survey's findings, said
that generally speaking, posi-
tive images of Jews are more
pervasive than negative ones. A
substantial majority of non-Jews
express the belief that Jews are
honest, hardworking, warm and
friendly, have a strong faith in

According to Yankelovich, the
decline in anti-Semitism in the
United States 'is not primarily
the result of changes in the view
of individuals, but the result of
nenerational change. In 1964, he
explained, older adults tended to
be highly anti-Semitic. Their
passing on and their replacement
by today's young adulta has
resulted in lower levels of anti-
Semitism, since young people
today tend to be relatively un-
prejudiced. It is the changing of
generations then and not the
changing of attitudes which is
primarily responsible for a
decline in anti-Semitism."
THE FINDINGS show that
only 16 percent of 18-29-year-olds
are prejudiced, compared to 31
percent of those 55 and over.

Semitism is more widespread a-

resident. He has always con-

left to the TOP Jewish Foun-
No matter what the value of
your estate, a Will is necessary, if
you want to devise property to,
certain individuals or make sure
that other individuals, whom you
do not intend to benefit do not
receive a share of your estate. Al-
though Florida law, like the law
of all of the other states, pre-
scribes the method for executing
a Will and makes provision for
the signature of witnesses, a Will
can be as simple as, "I leave
everything to my wife, Sarah,
and appoint her as Personal Rep-
resentative of my estate," to a
complicated document setting
forth trust provisions, guardian-
ship arrangements, powers and
duties of personal representative,
etc. What is important about the
relatively simple Will and the
complicated Will is that they
serve the same basic purpose.
They are both signed and wit-
nessed with the same formality;
and one is as important to a man
of great wealth as to the man of
modest means.
First and foremost a Will is the
means by which an individual
controls the dispostkm of his es-
tate after his death. In the
hypothetical example this may be
very important to Morris Donor-
witz. All states have Intestate
Laws. This is the law that
controls the disposition of one's
estate if he dies intestate (with-
out a Will.) Under Florida law if
Morris Donorwitz were to die
without having executed a valid
Will (intestate) his surviving wife
would not get his entire estate.
She would get the house, because
it is owned jointly and would get
all the insurance proceeds, be-
cause she is the named bene-
ficiary. But what about his coin
collection, stocks, personal ef-
fects, and perhaps the major part
of the estate, his business in-
Under Florida's Intestate Law,
if a decedent is survived by a wife
and one or more lineal de-
scendants (children or grandchil-
dren.) his surviving spouse gets
the first $20,000 of the decedent's
estate (exclusive of jointly held
property or insurance proceeds),
plus one-half of the balance of the
estate. The other one-half goes to
the decedent's lineal de-
scendants, each taking an equal
In Morris Donorwitz's case
this means, in addition to the
house and insurance, his wife
would get $20,000 plus one-half of
the balance of the estate, and the
children would get the rest. This
may NOT be what Morris had in-
tended! His son does not need the
money and he has no intention of
benefiting his daughter. Without
a Will spelling out his intentions,
his property that he worked so
hard to accumulate would be
disposed of according to the law,
not according to his wishes.
Another reason for having a
Will deals with estate tax plan-
ning. The federal government's
newly adopted tax program
contains provisions dealing with
estate and gift taxes, which have
yet to be interpreted, that will
lessen the estate and gift tax
burden. However, where an in-
dividual has substantial wealth,
there are still many tax ad-
vantages to be gained by sound
estate planning. Such planning
may call for trusts created during
one's lifetime, a redistribution of
assets from joint names to the in-
dividual names of husband or
wife, or any other number of tax
planning ideas. However, one
thing common to all estate tax
plans is a Will. Usually the
heaviest estate tax burden is felt
by the estate of the surviving
spouse, since certain estate tax
deductions are lost where the
surviving spouse does not re-
marry. With proper estate plan-
ning some of these estate tax
problems can be minimized.
Finally, a Will can be the
means of extending your in-
fluence over your assets, when
you are no longer there to ex-
ercise your own discretion over
financial or other matters. Trust
provisions in a Will can provide
financial management of your
assets after your death to insure
that the assets you've built up
over your lifetime are not
squandered or dissipated in a
reckless manner. Guardianship
arrangements for minor children
can be established in a Will. A
Will may also set out your wishes
for disposing of or continuing a
family business. Your Will may
also provide for a gift to charity
(like the TOP Jewish Founda-
tion) and may set out guidelines
for use of income earned over the
years on your charitable gift, i.e.,
a percentage to Federation, your
Synagogue and the like. In es-
sence it is the means by which
you leave your permanent stamp
on matters that you cannot per-
sonally control after your death.
One final point is that a Wfll
hasNO Legal Significance until
you pass away. Your relation-
ships with family members and
other potential beneficiaries can
change. Your financial worth
may go up or down. All of these
events may prompt you to revise
your Will to fit current cir-
cumstances. Therefore, you
should periodically review your
Will with your attorney so the
document that disposes of your
estate at your death reflects your
current situation.
There is no persuasive reason
why our hypothetical individual,
Morris Donorwitz, should not
have a Will. The myth that only a
wealthy man should have a Will
is just that a myth!

What's Tampa Jewry Noted For?
Tampa Jewry noted for? The
Museum of the Diaspora, located
on the campus of Tel Aviv Uni-
versity, has a computer whereby
you punch in the name of your
home town and out comes a
report of your city in the Dias-

travelers in Israel this summer,
we are grateful to the one who
brought this computer report
back. While it comes from the
"Encyclopedia Judaica", it cer-
tainly needs to be updated!
Tampa, the largest city on the
West Coast of Florida, estimated
Jewish population approximately
5,200 out of a general population
of 274,359 (1970). Originally an
Indian settlement, Tampa is first
mentioned in the 16th Century as
one of the places visited by Her-
nando De Soto. Some Marranos
or even Jewish merchants and
traders accompanied this expe-
dition, since references were
made to "Judas" (Apostate
Jews) and their dealings with the
Tampa's modern Jewish
history dates from the coming of
the cigar industry about 1886,
the year the city was chartered.
Both Cuban Jews and Key West
cigar makers followed Vincente
Ybor, who showed that Tampa
was ideal for the trade. The
names of Annis, Gottsagen,
Regensberg, Hammer, and Seck-
bach played an important part in
Tampa's growth.
As industry and commerce
grew so did Tampa's Jewish
population. The early merchants
migrated from Georgia and
South Carolina, opening stores to
serve the growing population.
The names of Maas, Falk, Stein,
and others are in the chronicles of
Tampa's history.
The Jewish population in
Tampa was numerous enough by
1894 for the incorporation of
Congregation Shaarai Zedek.
This Congregation became
Reform and joined the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
in 1903. Congregation Rodoph
Sholom was formed in 1904 and
was Orthodox for many years
before becoming Conservative.
Manny Garcia'
Congregation Beth Israel was
founded in 1917 as the Hebrew
Free School, later changing its
name to Knesseth Yisrael, and
then to its present name; it is an
independent Orthodoxnity-Con-
servative Synagogue. The Jewish
Community Center served the
cultural and recreational needs of
the entire community. The
Tampa Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion served as the coordinating
agency for charitable and phil-
anthropic work in the Jewish
community under the Tampa
Jewish Community Council
(formed in 1969).
Since Tampa was a cosmopoli-
tan community from the outset, a
minimum of anti-Semitism is
found in its history. Only those
organizations which nationally
excluded Jewish members ever
followed suit in Tampa. Service
clubs, social gatherings, and golf
and yacht clubs accepted Jews as

family programs are called family

The 11-year-old day school
guidance program provides free
counseling to children in 60
yeshivas throughout the Greater

according to Wangrofsky. He
said the family programs, held in
the evening, is a more specialized
service that involves both the

for Middle East peace proposed
by Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi
But the Department's deputy
spokesman, Allan Romburg, said
that the United States has seen
nothing but press reports about
Fahd's proposal which said that
the Arab states would accept
United Nations Security Council
Resolutions recognizing Israel's
rights to "live in peace" if Israel
withdrew from the administered
territories and a Palestinian state
was established there.
Romburg also said that the
United States had heard "noth-

visit to the United States in

Both Israel and Egyptian

some progress in Fahd's proposal
to recognize the Jewish State,

nothing new. Instead, he urged
the Saudis to join in the Camp
David peace process.

Veal Stew
(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
Veal stew is a less expensive
way to serve veal and is less
heavy than a beef stew. In ad-
dition, veal is lower in cholesterol
than beef. Serve the stew with a
tossed salad, garlic bread and
fruit ice for dessert, to make a
meal that is a bit different from
the ordinary.

also marks a significant
ivelopment for the Zionist
vement; it is the first Ameri-
Zionist organization born
ng the era of Israeli state-
d, and the first to be founded
l major religious organization.
hie concept of a Zionist or-
zaiion for Reform Jews was
proposed by UAHC presi-
, Rabbi Alexander M.
ndler. Over the years, the
litutions of North Ameri
Reform Judaism had com-
banne Lynn Steinberg,
Ehter of Judge and Mrs.
i Steinberg, and Dr. Ronald
i Samson, son of Mrs. Molly

_j, were married on August

Ellen Steinberg was
l-of-honor and Rodney
len was best man. Brides-
Is were Marilyn Checkver,

ael Steinberg, Charles
', Dr. Barry Blass, and
Hitman. Flower girls were
and Rita Greenberg.

piled an impressive and ever-ex-
panding catalogue of Israel-based
and Israel-oriented activities. In
1973, the UAHC ammeded its
constitution to include among the
objectives of the Union "... the
enrichment and strengthening of
the State of Israel as a vibrant
exemplar of eternal Jewish
values." Rabbi Schindler urged
that there be a vehicle for Reform
Jews to express Zionist commit-
ment as a function of their Re-
form religious conviction, rather
than through the secular orienta-
tion of other Zionist
In Israel, an indigenous Re-
form Judaism has established
congregations, a youth move-
ment, the Leo Baeck Secondary
School of Haifa, and even its own
collective settlement, Kibbutz
Yahel. Despite this, Israeli Re-
form Jews were (and are!) treated
as second-class citizens under the
law: Reform rabbis are denied the
right to solemnize marriages;
officiate at funerals; accept con-
verts and serve as chaplains in
the Israel Defense Forces; Re-
form institutions are denied
government funding received by
the Orthodox. This tragic situa-
tion was abetted in part by the
absence of a strong Reform Jew-
ish presence in the World Zionist
Organization (WZO) to counter
the influence of the Orthodox
In 1975, Reform Judaism took
its first step toward Zionist affi-
liation when the World Union for
Progressive Judaism, the in-
ternational arm of the Reform
Movement, joined the WZO as an
Associate Member with limited
voting rights. Full voting rights
are reserved for Zionist member-
ship organizations, i.e., or-
ganizations which enlist in-
dividual members.
ARZA chapters are growing in
hundreds of Reform con-
gregations throughout the
country. Programs are many and
varied, including appearances of
outstanding Israeli personalities
brought to these shores on
ARZA -sponsored speaking tours.
ARZA has already assumed a
significant role in American
Jewry's effort to preserve our
country's unswerving commit-
ment to Israel's security. In 1979,
an ARZA petition containing
many thousands of signatures
demanding continuing American
commitment to a united Jeru-

the Presidim of the Zionist Gen-

The dream of building an in-

Zionist organizations has become
a reality. Kadima Canadian

was created by the same Biennia'
resolution that created ARZA
The existence of two Zionist
bodies under UAHC auspices is
dictated by WZO bylaws which

Australia and the Netherlands.

Goren said: "They don't care

about archaeology if they can
learn something about ancient

Jewish law about those graves."
Shilo rejected this charge as an
unwarranted slur on the entire
profession. "Do you think we are
really grave robbers? Do you
think we are just excavating
grounds like these just to find
bones and throw them to the
dogs?": he asked. "If we find
human bones, we deal with them
according to law, but just be-
cause you might find bones, not

authorities for reburial.
Goren says he stopped work at
the City of David site because
Shilo had broken a promise to
have a rabbinical supervisor
constantly at the site, even
though he knew all bones had
been removed from the area
decades ago by other non-Israeli
archaeologists. He said he feared
that present work might spill
over to a new site where graves
might be found.
Shilo responded by saying he
could not carry on his research
work under such conditions. "An
archaeological dig or site is not
like a kosher hotel or restaurant,
with a mashgiach," he said. Shilo
said he would continue his work
at the site, for which he has re-
ceived full government approval,
and charged Goren with "ulterior
motives" in trying to stop the
work. "They have their own
reasons for declaring this site as a
cemetery. They are using a reli-
gious pretext to move in a polit-
ical way," Shilo said.
Asked if this might not mean
the end of archaeological research
in Israel, Goren applied, "This is
their problem A place where
there is a chance of finding Jew-
ish graves will not be touched

Executive held a special meeting

the border region and holding

Dulzin and Agency treasurer
Akiva Levinsky said the special
grant would be in addition to
funds already budgeted for spe-
cial projects in the Galilee in gen-
eral and Kiryat Shemona in par-
ticular. Agency members said
after the tour that the main
problem appeared to be not so
much economic and financial as
Only about 10 percent of the
Kiryat Shemona population had
stayed in the township through-
out the two weeks of shelling.
Observers say the residents had
not been sufficiently prepared in
advance for the possible effects of
Israel air raids against terrorist
installations in Lebanon.
Soviet Jew Sentenced To
Two Years In Exile
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry has learned that another
Jewish emigration activist, the
second in two weeks, has been
convicted in the Soviet Union.
Evgeny Lein, a 42-year-old
doctor of engineering, was
sentenced in a Leningrad court to
two years of exile at hard labor
for allegedly "resisting a repre-
sentative of authority."
Lein was held in prison since
his arrest on May 17. On that day
he had attended a seminar on
Jewish history in a private apart-
ment, when uniformed policemen
and KGB agents burst in and ar-
rested several participants,
including Lein. He was accused
of "beating a policeman."
Lein defended himself at his
one-day trial yesterday, attended
by about 50 people. According to
activists, the procurator's wit-
nesses did not succeed in
, proving the charge. It was
shown that an injury to the po-
liceman's leg could not have been
inflicted inside an apartment.
Furthermore, a medical state-
ment produced by the procurator
was written 20 days after the
incident was to have occurred.
Three men who wished to testify
on Lein's behalf were not permit-
ted to do so by the judge because
of their friendship for the

Fascell Urges Housing Rule Change
Congressman Dante Fascell (D., Fla.) has
Budget Director David Stockman to ap-
Eive regulations which will permit the construe-
of 50 to 60,000 units of low-income housing
bund the nation.
In a letter signed by 63 Republican and
ocratic members of the House of Representa-
Fascell noted that delay in approving the
illations will stop the construction of nearly
I units of housing in Florida alone.
The regulations, known as the "Finance Ad-
tment Factor," would allow rents charged for
construction of low-cost housing units to be
sed to account for high financing costs
used by current interest rates.
be increase affects only the Federal rent sub-
which is paid for the units and would have no
t on the amount paid by the tenant.

A delegation from the Canadian Holocaust
Remembrance Association met with Justice Min-
ister John Chretien and presented him with a
.petition containing 30,000 names urging the gov-
ernment to prosecute war criminals residing in
Canada and to take action against white suprem-
acy groups, it was reported July 29. A brief ac-
companying the petition stated that the govern-
ment has a legal means to act and should imple-
ment the relevant laws. Sabina Citron, a leading
member of the Association, said Canada is obli-
gated under international treaties to prosecute
war criminals.

Research Being Conducted To
Combat Disorder That Strikes About
One in 2,500 Ashkenazi Jews
search efforts are underway to
combat Gaucher's disease, a little
known progressive and as yet in-
curable inherited genetic disorder
that strikes approximately one in
every 2,500 Ashkenazi Jews, ac-
cording to Marilyn Baumel, press
manager at the department of
public affairs for Mount Sinai
Medical Center.
An estimated one in every 25
Jewish people are otherwise
healthy carriers of the recessive
disease-causing gene. When two
carriers have children, there is a
one in four chance that a child
will receive the recessive gene
from each parent required to
cause the disease. In the New
York metropolitan area alone,
more than 1,000 Ashkenazi Jews
suffer from Gaucher's, and over
120,000 are carriers of the
Gaucher gene.
Patients with Gaucher's dis-
ease lack sufficient amounts pf
glucocerebroside, an enzyme
needed to break down and eli-
minate a particular fatty sub-
stance in cells. The result is a
rapid proliferation of abnormal
blood cells containing the fatty
substance, which accumulate
within the spleen, liver, bone
marrow and lung causing symp-
toms which include anemia, in-
creased susceptibility to in-
fection, abnormal blood clotting
' and bone pain and fractures,
Baumel said.
Developing Strategies to Treat
Research is currently being
conducted to develop methods to
identify carriers and strategies to
treat the disease. One approach
now seeks to inject a supple-
mental amount of the enzyme,
glucocerebrosidase, obtained
from human placenta, into the
body to replace the missing en-
zume, according to Dr. Robert
Desnick, director of Mount
Sinai's Center for Jewish Genetic
Desnick explained, however,
that the isolation and purification
of this enzyme is a difficult and
highly technical problem. To
date, the preliminary trials of en-
zyme replacement have not
proved convincingly effective. A
number of hurdles need to be
Baumel described the two
types of Gaucher's disease. Pa-
tients with Type I, the "Jewish
genetic disease," may display a
wide variety of symptoms and
symptom severity. Some of these
patients may live fairly normal
lives, while others die of the dis-
ease in their teens or during early
adulthood. The infantile form of
Gaucher's, or Type 2, is severe. It
strikes at four to six months of
age and causes death within two
years, according to Baumel.
Administration Offers
Rationale For AWACS
The Reagan Administration
appears to be basing its argu-
ment for the proposed sale of
AWACS reconnaissance planes
to Saudi Arabia on assurances to
Congress that the intelligence
information forwarded from the
planes to the ground will be con-
trolled by the United States.
This was indicated by Senate
Majority leader Howard Baker
(R., Tenn.) and Defense Secre-
tary Caspar Weinberger in
separate television appearances
in which they also indicated
Israel would also benefit from the
intelligence information.
"The actual crewing of the
planes is not nearly as important
as the staffing on the ground,"
Baker said. He said that the crew
on the plane does not really know
what information is being, sent
back to. the base. He said what is
important is "what access does
,he U.S. have or do the Israelis
Weinberger said that the Ad-
linistration is working out de-
ads on the use of intelligence
picked up by the AWACS. How-
;ver, he. stressed that this five
AWACS are being sold outright
to the Saudis. But he said this is
being done not only to help the
Saudis to prevent attacks on
their oilwelis, but also in the
overall interests of the Middle
East, "specifically including the
United States, specifically in-
cluding Israel."
Months Away
Both Weinberger and Baker
said the Administration would
begin the informal notification to
Congress on the proposed sale
after Congress returns from its
summer recess in September.
This would mean, according to
Baker, that the final 30 day
formal notification period would
end in October or November. The
proposed sale would also include
enhancement material for the 62
F-16s previously bought by the
Saudis and other sophisticated
military hardware would jro
through automatically unless
both houses of Congress adopt
resolutions to reject it.
