Tampa Jewish Community Hosts
Wife Of Soviet Activist
On Wednesday Dec. 9, the
npu Jewish Federation and
|tbe B'nai B'rith Women jointly
sponsored the annual observance
(of "Women's Plea for Soviet
I Jewry." The date corresponded
I to the national date designated as
Soviet Jewish Solidarity Day.
[This was in conjunction with the
[international Human Rights Day
[scheduled for Dec. 10 around the
Tampa's guest was Faina
If'Ina") Tsukerman, wife of
Iviadimir Tsukerman, former
Soviet Naval official from
Kishinev Moldavia SSR. Mrs.
[Tsukerman, who emigrated to Is-
[nel in 1978 with her parents and
[ton, is on a speaking tour of the
lUnited States attempting to get
I support for her effort in freeing
I Vladimir from prison. He was ar-
rested in 1978 for "disturbing
public order" when he staged a
peaceful demonstration outside
I the emigration office in Kishinev
in response to the repeated re-
fusals of the Soviet authorities to
grant him an exit visa to join his
wife in Israel. The official Soviet
explanation was that since he
was a naval official, he might
have been privy to "state mili-
tary secret*." This charge bears
no weight when one considers
that he was discharged from the
Navy in 1975 and was only a
minor official anyway.
The Women's Plea for Soviet Jewry was observed in Tampa at a pro-
gram at the Jewish Community Center, jointly sponsored by the
Tampa Jewish Federation-Women's Division and B'nai B'rith
Women, ((left to right) Connie Spitolnick, president, B'nai B'rith

sion, photo; Audrey Haubenstock
Mrs. Tsukerman arrived in
Tampa in the afternoon and pro-
ceeded to the mayor's office
where a petition decrying condi-
tions in Russia for Jews wishing
to leave was signed by George
Pennington, chief aide to Mayor
Bob Martinez. An attempt is be-
ing made to secure one million
signatures by Jan. 15 and send
the petition to Soviet President
Brezhnev. Pennington presented
Mrs. Tsukerman with an official
City of Tampa momento and
pledged his support for her cause.
A copy of the petition is re-
printed within this paper. You
are requested to sign it and re-
turn to the Tampa Jewish
The day's activities concluded
with a rally in the evening at the
Jewish Community Center,
addressed by Mrs. Tsukerman.
At. the close of her presentation,
Mrs. Tsukerman graciously met
with the Russian community of
Tampa. A question and answer
period completed the evening.
The meeting attended by almost
100 participants was co-chaired
by Franci Rudolph, president of
the Tampa Jewish Federation
Women's Division and Connie
Spitolnick, president of the B'nai
B'rith Women of Tampa.
Kids' Rights Center of Litigation
A custody battle in Man-
hattan Supreme Court in
which a court order has
been issued which specifi-
cally requires that the reli-
gious rights of the affected
children be protected in
resolving the custody dis-
pute was reported today by
the National Jewish Com-
mission on Law and Public
Affairs (COLP A).
Howard Zuckerman, COLPA
president, said this appeared to
the first time such a stipulation
has been made in a custody
hearing. He said Manhattan
Supreme Court Justice Martin
Stecher has ordered appointment
of a special guardian for the two
Jewish children, boys aged 12
and 13, with that stipulation.
HE SAID COLPA had sub-
mitted a friend of the court brief
in the case and that Dennis
Rapps, COLPA executive
director, argued Nov. 17 before
Justice Stecher in support of the
The unique court order
emerged in the reopening of the
issue of which parent should have
custody of the children. After the
parents were divorced in 1975,
the mother, a resident of the Boro
Park section of Brooklyn, agreed
to a grant of custody to the
father, a research chemist now
living in East Orange, N. J.
Rapps said the names of the
parents and the children were
being withheld to protect their
privacy pending the forthcoming
re-hearing of the custody issue.
He said the two boys ran away
from their father to rejoin their
mother. The father reclaimed the
younger boy but the older one
remained with the mother.
WHEN THE mother refused
to surrender the older child, the
father moved before Stecher to
regain custody of the older child
and to have the mother held in
contempt of court for refusing to
obey the original custody agree-
The mother came to COLPA,
declaring that the father had
become non-observant since the
divorce, and was not adequately
providing for the religious
rearing and education of the boys
in accordance with the parental
separation agreement.
Rapps said the mother, in con-
testing the father's effort to
regain custody of the older boy,
submitted a statement to the
court from the boys in which they
objected to their inability to
practice their religion as obser-
vant Jews and asked the court to
grant them status as parties to
assert this right, independent of
the wishes of their parents.
the case, not in support of either
the father or the mother, but in
support of the principle that
where there is a custody dispute,
children of mature age are en-
titled to standing to assert this
right in a litigation which will
affect their education and up-
bringing, and ability to observe
their religion.
Zuckerman said there have
been a number of recent court de-
cisions which have recognized
and applied the principle that a
child's interest in a custody pro-
ceeding may require individual
child representation of the
premise that the parents cannot
be relied on to put aside their
partisanship for the welfare of
their children.
But, Zuckerman said, the
Manhattan hearing appeared to
be the first instance in which a
guardian appointment has been
ordered in which religious
practice is the basic issue.

Kennedy Demands Reagan
End Mideast Impasse.
Bring Linowitz Back
Edward Kennedy (D., Mass.) has
called on the Reagan Ad-
ministration to end "months of
inaction" by appointing a new
Middle East negotiator to suc-
ceed Sol Linowitz in the Israel-
Egypt peace talks.
"In pursuing these nego-
tiations, the United States must
reaffirm that the Palestine
Liberation Organization must
never play a part in the peace
talks until it has abandoned
terrorism and renounced ab-
solutely and forever the oath to
destroy Israel," Kennedy said in
an address to 4,000 delegates
attending the biennial assembly
of the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations (UHAC), the
association of Reform syna-
gogues, and the National Federa-
tion of Temple Sisterhoods
KENNEDY SPOKE in accept-
ing a Torah Scroll for the Kenne-
dy Library here from UAHC
president Rabbi Alexander
Schindler. The Torah Scroll had
originally been presented by the
UAHC to the Senator's brother,
President John Kennedy, in 1962.
After Kennedy's assassination,
the scroll was placed in the
UAHC's religious action center
in Washington.
In his address, Kennedy de-
clared: "We must hold a steady
course on the Camp David path
to peace. We muat not permit the
Soviet Union or its surrogates to
subvert that process. We must
not set the accords aside in a
futile effort to appease those
sworn to an unholy war against
the Holy Land of Israel."
Continuing, the Senator said:
"And we muat unequivocally
repudiate the incredible
suggestion that the United
States should recognize or deal
with the terrorists of the PLO."
"It is wrong," Kennedy states,
"to lavish praise on the so-called
Fahd peace plan, which fails to
recognize the State of Israel, fails
to accept Israel's right to live in
peace with secure and defensible
borders, and fails even to accept
United Nations Security Council
Resolutions 242 and 338. We
must insist that the (Reagan)
Administration reject the Saudi
demand for a new Palestinian
state, with Jerusalem as its
cent approval of the sale of
AWACS reconnaissance planes
and other sophisticated weap-
onry to Saudi Arabia "the most
dangerous and damaging arm*
sale ever sought by any Ad
ministration." He called the deci
sion "wrong for our own national
security, wrong for the cause of
peace in the Middle East and
wrong for the people of Israel."
The Senator also denounced
statements made during the
AWACS debate which, he said,
"in effect questioned the patriot-
ism of American Jews who op-
posed the sale. We must condemn
tactics that raise the spectre of
religious prejudice that blame
dissent over public policy on
diversity of religious faith."
He said "the Administration
complained that Jewish Ameri-
cans were vigorously expressing
their views. But where were the
Administration's complaints
about the corporations that
lobbiedhard for AWACS because
of the business it would bring.?
And why were there no com-
plaints about Saudi princes
gliding through the halls of Con-
"I believe that no Americans
are any less American because
they care about Israel or
understand that the security of
Israel is vital to the security of
the United States."

where he is in the fifth grade, and again at Friday evening Shab-
bat services at Congregation Rodeph Sholom. by Rabbi Kenneth
Berger and by his scoutmaster, Charles Hair. Joel has been a

awards including the Top Weblos Scout Award and the Arrow of
Light Award, which is the highest award in cut scouting. He will
continue this excellence in scout achievements when he transfers
into Boy Scouting in the near future. In addition. Joel likes to

Israel Desks Turns on Americans to Jewish Identity
NEW YORK American
Jewish youth are "turning on" to
Iheir Jewish identity in ways
they never thought possible, ac-
cording to the cover story in the
December issue of the magaime
jWB Circle. A network of
community-baaed Israel Pro-
grams and Information Desks,
gpearbeadsd by Jewish Commu-
nity Center* and-or Jewiah Fed-
erations on the local level and
sponsored on the national level
by JWB, is credited with the
writing phenomenon.

raise the Jewish consciousness of
American youth through long-
term of short-term experiences in

JWB Circle is the bimonthly
magazine that interprets the
Jewish Community Center move-
ment and JWB's place as the
central address and headquarters
for JCCs, YM AND YWHAs and
camps in North America.
Masback is a member of the
Long Beach Israel Desk Commit-
tee. Green is the Israel Desk di-
rector. Their jointly authored
cover story tells how, under the
general direction of Committee
Chairperson Shimon Kaufman, a
sub-committee headed by
Seymour Gates was asked to
organize an exhibit to make the
wide range of opportunities
available in Israel come alive to
the Long Beach Community.
The result was a 10-day, multi-
madia opportunities in Israel"
exhibit which dramatically
presented information on travel,
tody, temporary stay, em-
ployment, business and Aliyah.

Tampa Linked to Tel Aviv
Via Museum Posters
Dr. Robert L. Leslie, 96, has
loaned the Jewish Community
Center of Tampa 25 posters an-
nouncing the various exhibits at
the Tel Aviv Museum over the
last decade. The posters, on
display through January, were
hung in the Center auditorium by
Sara Richter and Center staff.
This exhibit will show in art
form, the varied offerings of the
Tel Aviv Museum.
It is not as easy to see and
thank Dr. Leslie a man of
equally diverse background. In
New York's High School of Art
and Design, "Doc" Leslie,
honorary chairman of their
Advisory Commission, has been
described as: typographer,
physician, author, graphic ar-
tisan, bibliophile, typophile, bril-
liant orator, public health pio-
neer, teacher, benefactor, philan-
thropist and printing afficionado.
Having been bom in poverty
on New York's Lower East Side
in 1886, he worked as a printer to
help finance his education. After
graduating John Hopkins in
1908, he spent over 60 years as
physician and educator before
"retiring" in 1970.

says Philadelphia Chairperson
Shirley Shils.
A "dramatic increase" in the
number of Buffalo, N.Y., persons

"The unique thing about the
Israel Desk concept is that it is a
North American Jewish respon-
sibility," according to JWB
Executive Vice-President Arthur
Rot man. "The concept grew out
of the realization that en-
couraging these extensive experi-
ences in Israel, of benefit both to
the North American Jewish com-
munity and to Israel, are and
should be the responsibility of
American Jews."
"The Israel Desk is sponsored
by the local Jewish Community
Center and-or Jewish Federation.
The directors, knowing the
American "consumer,' provide on
the basis of their knowledge of
programs in Israel a tailor-made
program for each American Jew
interested in a living experience
in Israel," Rotman said.
"The Israel Desks are not in-
tended to supplant the Israel
programs and projects of other
Jewish organizations. The Israel
Desk is not an additional or
competing program. Rather, it is
the one place in the Jewish com-
munity where anyone interested
in experiencing Israel can come
and get information on Israel
programs offered by all organiza-
tions," the JWB executive vice-
president said.
In North America, JWB pro-
vides training opportunities for
lay leaders and professional
personnel of Israel Desks (the
Desks have a variety of names),
makes available a manual of
guidelines and materials, dissem-
inates the latest information
about Israel programs to local
Desks, and is helpful in other

Susie Selcer of Minneapolis,
chairman of the JWB Israel Pro-

Intelligence No Surprise
The report that Israeli intelligence was largely
the source of US. information that the Libyans had
been plotting the assassination of President Reagan
and other top-level Administration officials should
come as no surprise.
Israeli intelligence has often been the source of
information about the Arabs passed onto other
Western governments. In fact, Israeli intelligence
has m the past shared intelligence data about Arab
governments or Arab movements even with the
Arabs themselves.
There was for example, the assassination plot
agamst President Sadat in 1974-75 that Israel's
supersleuths uncovered and passed on to officials in
Cairo a gesture that helped encourage ties bet-
ween the two countries and ultimately led to what is
popular called the "Sadat peace initiative."
Before that, Israeli intelligence figured in Jor-
dan's successful struggle in the early 70's against the
takeover efforts of the Palestine Liberation
Organization an example of a good turn to which
King Hussein responded with his usual ineptitude.
Although it is not yet confirmed, there is at least
some evidence that Israeli intelligence knew of the
last plot against President Sadat that took his life on
Oct. 6 information on which Sadat failed to act
with sufficient seriousness of intent to break it up be-
cause, by his own admission, he was by then deeply
involved in metaphysical transcendalism; he had
come to confuse historic immortality and his own
apparent charisma with what assassins can do to
alter political fortunes by outright murder.
We permit ourselves to muse on this now be-
cause of the media's tendency to make light of the
latest Israeli intelligence as inaccurate at best or
even a ploy at worst to soften American public
opinion to some subsequent Israeli military action of
its own against the Khadafy regime should it be
If the Reagan Administration is using Libya as
a smokescreen to dim the American public's view of
its own unhappy political and economic cir-
cumstances these days, that is one thing. But to
suggest that the Khadafy threat is without sub-
stance because Israel's intelligence was without sub-
stance is quite another unacceptable and danger-
ous conclusion.

No Word Was Spoken of 'Arab Lobby
THERE WAS a great deal
heard about the "Israel" and or
"Jewish lobby" during the recent
debate over the sale of AW ACS
surveillance planes and F-15
enhancement equipment to Saudi
Arabia. What seemed to be for-
gotten by the critics that this
lobby is nothing more than a
group of Americans voicing their
legitimate views on an issue that
is important to themselves and
which they believe is in the
national interest of the United
Now that efforts to block the
AW ACS sale were defeated by a
52-48 vote of the Senate, more
and more people are pointing out
that the "Jewish lobby," as
powerful as it is supposed to be,
never had a chance against the
pressures from the oil companies
and other business interests,
which unlike the American
Jewish community fought the
battle mostly from outside public
The lecture circuit will be full
of speakers pointing this out
during the upcoming weeks and
months. But one of theclearcut
explanations was presented
recently by Hobart Rowen, the
Washington Post's astute
economic analyst, who earlier
documented how the Saudi
Arabian efforts to keep the price
of oil down were for the benefit of
the Saudis and not out of friend-
ship for the United States.
IN ONE of his recent Sunday
columns, Rowen dismisses the
view that it was President
Reagan's personal effort with
individual Senators that reversed
the almost sure defeat for the
AWACS sale into a victory for
the President.
"The real pressure behind th.
sale of AWACS is not^

hower's farewell warning? on
the move. Against that kind of
power, don't lose too much sleep
over the 'Jewish lobby.'"
Rowen says that a "primary
source of the financing for the
growing conservative majority"
in Congress is the oil industry
which contributed $4.5 billion to
congressional campaigrsin 1980,
double its contributions in 197&
The columnist says that the
industry now hopes to help the
Republicans win control of the
House in 1982, according to
Harold Scroggins, a lobbyist for
the Independent Petroleum
Producers Association. "We
came to a decision some time ago
that the only way we could
change the political fortunes of
the petroleum industry was to
change Congress,'' Scroggins is
quoted as saying
ROWEN ALSO points out

Women May Wear Prayer Shawl
.eturn petitions to Tampa Jewish Federation.
Two Conservative rabbis have
expressed the view that there is
no prohibition in Jewish religious
law against women wearing
prayershawls One of the re-
ported that some members of the
Committee on Law and Stan
dards of the Rabbinical Assem-
bly wanted to recommend that a
special prayershawl for women be
The question was discussed in
separate articles by Rabbi Martin
Sandberg of Santurce. Puerto
Rico, and Rabbi Jonathan Porath
of Clark, N.J., in the fall issue of
Outlook, the quarterly publica-
tion of the Women's League for
Conservative Judaism.
SANDBERG declared that
"careful study of Halachic
sources seems to offer a clear
theoretical possibility of women
putting on tallitot and, according
to one view, they may even be
required to do so."
Sandberg also examined the
argument of Beged Ish. the
Torah ban against the wearing of
women of men's clothing. He
asserted that "this line of argu-
ment is not used in the tra-
ditional sources against the use
of a tallit by women, with one
minor exception. Custom today
has made the tallit a male Dero-
gative but there is nothing in the
garment itself which makes it ex-
clusively male."
He said the Rabbinical Assem-
bly's law committee had con-
sidered the matter in September,
1978 and concluded "there is no
prohibition against a woman
wearing a tallit.'' He said the idea
of designing a special tallit for
women was one some committee
members wanted to recommend
to the Women's League. So far,
he added "no such tallit has come
into popular use."
traditional sources, more out of
unfamiliarity with this practice
than anything else, counched
their objections to women
wearing a tallit in social and
cultural, rather than Halachic
He declared that "Jewish tra-
dition views clothing as bearing
a message. To the rabbis, one's
garments reflect a sense of tzini-
yut,' modesty and humility
before God." He said that by
putting on a special garment,
Jews separate "the holy from the
Porath suggested that the
question for Conservative
Judaism was not "May women
bedeck themselves in special
prayer garments?" but rather
"What should the appearance of
that women's special garment
He suggested that, through
custom and use. the traditional
prayershawl used in synagogues
is a male prayer garment. He
added that "we should not want
our young girls and women to be
taught from infancy and Bat
Mit/vah on, that 'maleness' or
being like one of the boys is the
model for women's behavior and
practice "
PORATH advocated a special
prayer garment for women, with
four corners and ritual fringes,
but with a different appearance,
reflecting "women's sensitivity
and eye for design, pattern and
color." He expressed the hope
that "this kind of parallel reli-
gious development" would do
much to help resolve the "ten-
sion" created by a number of
controversies Conservative Ju-
daism is facing "regarding the
proposed expansion of women's
ritual participation and role."'
The most divisive issue cur-
rently is whether women should
be admitted to the rabbinical
school of the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America. After
several years of sharp debate be-
tween the Rabbinical Assembly,
which has repeatedly endorsed
the idea of Conservative women i
rabbis, and some key personali-
ties in the seminary faculty who
strongly oppose it, the issue has
been shelved for the time being

have heard the argument
made by Jews that they see
nothing wrong with placing these
luminaries as for them it has no
religious significance and it is
simply a beautiful custom which
they see no harm in following. It
has also been felt by some that
there is no harm in helping ones
neighbors celebrate Christmas by
decorating the block.
I can see to some extent the
validity of such arguments.
However, I can also see that we
must not allow ourselves or any
of our brothers and sisters to be
forced into following a practice
against their belief. Freedom of
religious choice and practice is a
cornerstone of democracy.
We must deplore the harass-
ment of those who are so insensi-

they could hate us because of
them. All of us must stand in

who wants to follow the dictates
of his own heart when it comes to

Friday. Deccnbe
Jewish Stadeat Center, U.S.F.
The Jewish month of Kialev is
before us. In it we celebrate one
of the most joyful and festive
holidays of Thanksgiving
Chanukah. It is the holiday
which commemorates the great
struggle of the Jewish people to
preserve their faith from the
attempts of the Syrian-Greek
empire of ancient times to wipe
out the last vestiges of Judaism.
It is the anniversary of the little
remnant of oil which continued to
burn for eight days and which
would not be extinguished. Here
is the story of Chanukah.
"More than 20 centuries ago,
the Jews lived in the land of Is-
rael, or as it was then known, the
land of Judea. They had their
own land, their own government,
their own Sanhedrin (supreme
court), their own Holy Temple.
However, there arose a great
kingdom in the world Greece,
which under its leader, Alexander
the Great, swept throughout
Asia Minor, conquering country
after country, and people after
people. Judea too. fell before the
mighty Greek armies, but
though they lost their poli-
tical freedom, they were allowed
by Alexander to observe their
faith in the manner that they
were accustomed to.
Alexander, however, died while
still very young, and upon his
death his generals fell to quarrel-
ling among themselves as to who
would be the heir to the king-
dom. Bloody and cruel were the
wars that were fought among the
Greeks themselves, but in the
end, the kingdom was divided
into three main parts and the tiny
kingdom of Judea fell to the
Syrian Greeks.
There soon arose among the
Syrian-Greeks, a vain and cruel
king by the name of Antiochus.
He was hungry for power and
honor and he sought to obtain
this by wars and conquests.
He conquered tens of king-
doms together with their rulers,
setting them aflame and
ravaging the inhabitants. Since
the days of Alexander, there was
no Greek in the area of Asia
Minor whq inspired so much fear
and dread as the evil Antiochus.
Antiochus was determined
that all the peoples under his rule
would bow to the Greek idols and
also accept him as a deity. He
was angered beyond all reason
when the Jews refused to do so.
He and his advisors therefore
determined to enact a series of
decrees which would once and for
all put an end to the Jews stub-
born refusal to give up their faith.
They thought that if they would
make life unbearable enough for
the Jews that they would surely
give in. They declared that from
that time onward, no Jew was
allowed to bolt or lock their
doors. They hoped by this to
open the houses of the Jews to
burglars and thieves, to refuse
them minimum of privacy when
they slept, and were at home.

The Jews suffered terribly
from this decree, and they were
able to see the fulfillment of the
prophecy of the Torah (Bible).
"And thou shalt fear day and
night." "How much longer can
we hold out?" They pleaded with
the Lord. And yet, hold out they
did for three years. At the end
of the three years, the Greeks saw
that the Jews were clinging firm
to their faith in spite of the
decree, and so they decreed.
"Every Jew that owns an ox or
cattle shall engrave on its horns
the following words: "We have
no part in the G-d of Israel." This
decree would surely bring the
Jews to their knees they thought.
For if they did not wish to deny
their tie to G-d, they would have
to sell their cattle, leaving them
without meat, dairy products, or
cattle to till the soil. But the Jews
refused saying, "heaven forbid
that we deny the essence of G-d
and our ties to him. we will sell
our cattle."
The suffering of the Jews
continued, and so they turned to
G-d and pleaded, "how much
longer must we suffer?" The Al-
mighty answered them, saying
"Because of your sin in neglect-
ing my commandment of going
up to the Holy Temple on the
three festivals of Passover,
Tabernacles and Shavuot are you
being punished. "However, I see
that you have glorified my name
by refusing to deny it, and so I
will relieve your sufferings."
Causing all the kosher beasts and
birds to come to their doors.
When the Greeks saw that this
decree was failing, they decreed
that every bride who was plan-
ning to marry must first be
possessed by the commander of
that town. Great was the despair
of the Jews when they heard this
decree. Gathering together they
decided with sad hearts that
there was only one thing left to
do. They would be unable to
marry anymore!
So matters continued for three
years and eight months. Young
girls and young men, deeply in
love, were unable to marry. The
Greeks mocked the Jewish
maidens for growing old without

Federation Launches 'Count Up For '81*
Cash Drive: National Goal $310 Million
The Tampa Jewish Federation
has joined communities across
the nation in "Count Up for '81,"
a United Jewish Appeal program
to collect $310 million in the 1961
UJA-community campaign by
Dec. 31, Meyer Frank, cash
chairman announced today.
"Locally, our goal is to collect
$400,000 in cash to meet the im-
mediate needs of our people
served by the Jewish Agency in
Israel, the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee in
30 nations worldwide and our
communities," Frank said.
The program will focus on
securing cash payment of 1981
and earlier outstanding pledges
and pre-payment of 1982 pledges
in this calendar year.
"Our failure to provide a time-
ly and adequate flow of cash has
forced the Jewish Agency to
slash programs and services to
A t Harvard
young and elderly and* to call a
halt to the development of vital
settlements in the Galilee and the
Negev," Ed Cadden, national
cash chairman said. "Cash short-
fall also resulted in borrowing at
high interest rates debts that
must be repaid at the coat of sore-
ly needed programs. The Ameri-
can Jewish community pledged it
would meet its goal of $310 mil-
lion in cash by the end of this
calendar year. We must keep our
Frank added that the new
Economic Recovery Act of 1981
affords donors substantial tax
savings if pledges are paid in
cash this year.
Additional information about
the cash collection program, and
tax advantages under the
Economic Recovery Act of 1981,
is available from the Tampa Jew-
ish Federation, 872-4451.

Polish History Goes on Exhibit
thousand years of Polish Jewish
history was put on view at Har-
vard's Widener Library with the
opening of "Jewish Art and Arti-
facts: Lost and Rediscovered," a
loan exhibition sponsored by the
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations (UAHC) under the
terms of an unusual cultural ex-
change agreement with the
Polish Government.
At a dinner, given by Harvard
University president Derek Bok.
Poland's Minister of Religious
Affairs, Jerzy Kuberski, hailed
the exhibition as "testifying to
the creativity of Jews living in
Poland" and expressing the hope
that the exhibition would "mark
further cooperation and serve the
common need for friendship and

Kuberski, who is also president
of the International Association
for Januscz Korczak, Polish Jew-
ish author and educator who
went with 200 children to the gas
chambers at Treblinka, said the
exhibition demonstrated "the
contribution of Polish Jews
scholars, artisans, writers, rabbis
and zadikim to the repository
of human achievement.
"The thousand vear history of
Polish Jewry depicted in this
exhibition,'' he said.'' is
testimony to the existence of
Jewish and Polish lives, so
tragically broken and sanctified
by the death of millions.''
RABBI Philip Hiat, assistant
to Rabbi Alexander Schindler.
UAHC president, praised the Po-
lish government and Catholic
church authorities in Poland for
their cooperation in making
available the rare examples of
Jewish art for the loan exhibition.
Among the items on view, which
Hiat helped to choose during
three visits to Poland this year,
are: a silver and gilt Torah Crown
inlaid with semi-precious stones;
a Torah mantle of silk and
metallic thread: a 13th century
Codex: and a 14th Century
holiday prayerbook.
The exhibition will travel
across the United States, begin-
ning with a private showing at
the Knoedler gallery in New York
and including the Skirball
Museum in Los Angeles, and the
Spertus Museum in Chicago.
In his remarks, Kuberski said
also that a major exhibition of
Jewish contributions to Polish
thought, art. literature and his-
tory would be held in Cracow and
Warsaw in April 1983 to mark
the 40th anniversary of the
Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

Minister Rene Levesque of
Quebec expressed disgust here
that the Parti Quebecois which he
heads invited two Palestine
Liberation Organization officials
to attend its convention here last
weekend as observers.
"The invitation is nothing else
but kindergarten infern-
ationalism," Levesque told a
press conference in Quebec City.
He indicated it was a gesture by
the party 8 radical majority to
discredit him.
But Levesque was equivocal on
the nature of the PLO when he
appeared on a television inter-
view last Saturday night. Asked
by the host, Pierre Nadeau, if he
was aware that the PLO is a
terrorist organization, the Prime
Minister replied: "There is an
element of terror in the PLO. But
let us not forget that the State of
Israel itself was born out of
LEVESQUE called his press
conference to dissociate himself
from "any inuendos" arising
from the convention. He repeated
his threat to resign from the Parti
Quebecois where he is presently
embroiled in a struggle with
radical secessionists who, he said,
want to circumvent the demo-
cratic process.
The invitations to Edmon
Omran, attached to the PLO's
information bureau in Ottawa,
and Abdullah Abdullah, another
PLO spokesman, were the first
from any political party in North
American to PLO represen-
tatives. Omran said "the PLO
receives its greatest support in
Canada from Quebeckers who
share with it a fight for national
identity ... When we were
presented to the delegates the
reception we received was so
tremendous that we felt that the
Quebecois are really behind us."
Levesque noted at his press
conference that the convention
also gave a "standing ovation" to
Jacques Rose, a convicted
Canadian Terrorist free on parole.
He and his brother, Paul Rose,
still in prison, received life
sentences for the assassination of
the Liberal Party Quebec
Minister Pierre I,a port in 1970.
president of the Parti Quebecois.
said after the convention that the
invitation to the PLO did not
signify direct support for the Pal-
estinian cause. "Invitations were
sent to all the progressive parties
in the world, including the Israeli
Labor Party," Simard said.
The Parti Quebecois and the
Quebec government have never
taken an official position on the
issue of a Palestinian homeland.
Levesque, before coming to
power, had advocated creation of
a homeland for the Palestinian
people. The Federal government
does not recognize the PLO. Its
information bureau in Ottawa is
technically part of the Arab
League's information office there.

Filling in Background
Memo Raised MK's Very Hot Tempers
Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon assertea that the
U.S. Israel memoran-
dum of understanding: on
strategic cooperation
means "a real change" in
Israel's international
standing. In a tough Knes-
set speech in reply to four
motions of no confidence,
Sharon accused the opposi-
tion of deliberately "per-
verting" the accord in order
to criticize it. He called on
the nation not to listen to
the opposition "doom-
say ere."
The four no confidence motions
were submitted to the Knesset by
the Labor Alignment, Commu
nist Party, Shinui and Telem fol
lowing the signing of the U.S.
Israel memorandum of un
derstanding by Sharon and Sec
retary of Defense Caspar Wain
berger in Washington.
The four Knesset factions con-
tended that the government gave
away more than it received by
signing the memorandum; that
Israel was now what amounted to
a satellite of the U.S.; and that
Israel was allied with the U.S.
against the Soviet Union making
Israel a target of the USSR in
any superpower confrontation.

first Premier, died eight years
The Labor Alignment failed in
an attempt to seek a court order
nullifying Savidor's decision to
begin the debate utter.
Sharon, in his address to the
Knesset, said the memorandum
of understanding was "not an
accord for the newspapers" and
hinted (despite official U.S.
denials) that there was a secret
part detailing concrete fields of
cooperation. "No one would
expect ua to publish details of
how many tanks or how much
ammunition (is to be stored) or
what sort of intelligence (is to be
exchanged)," Sharon said.
HE ACCUSED the opposition
of "hypocrisy" in "pretending
that Israel's defense is solely
against the threat from the Arabs
and not against the Soviet
Union." Hurling invectives,
especially at "past generals who
pretend to be statesmen" (a
reference to Labor Alignment
Knesset members Yitzhak Rabin
and Mordechai Gur), Sharon said
the accord would pave the way
for Israel's inclusion in a regional
strategic framework led by the
U.S. "against threats we cannot
face alone." The framework he
added, might in time become an
economic regional grouping, too.
Sharon contended that the ac-
cord could be invoked if the Sovi-
ets intervened directly on the side
of the Arabs in a future war
against Israel, or if they helped
the Arabs in such a war. Labor
Knesset members shouted from
their seats that this was not so:
the accord specifies threats "from
outside the region" only.
Sharon shouted back that in
1956 Israel had withdrawn from
Sinai under a Soviet threat, and
in 1973 the Soviets had threat-
ened to intervene if Israel went
ahead to destroy the Egyptian
Thrid Army.
"Whom are you trying to kid
(that Israel is not faced by a So-
viet military threat)?" Sharon
taunted the Labor benches.
"Whom are you pretending to
... I know it hurts to be in oppo-
sition ... to see someone else
reaching an agreement ... but
you will have to get used to this
frustration for a long time to
THE ACCORD, he continued,
would "put an end to the hopes of
our Arab enemies" that with the
help of the USSR they will even-
tually be able to annihilate Israel.
It was also "a basis for ties with
countries in Asia and Africa
which fear Soviet expansionism
. and you'll be hearing much
more on that in the future."
(Sharon recently toured several
African countries, according to
foreign reports.)
There was no importance in the
opposition argument that this
accord, unlike any previous pact
(even NATO. CENTO and
SEATO) specifically mentioned
the Soviet Union and was there-
fore a gratuitous and dangerous
orovocation. Other facts spoke of

was reducing Israel to the
level of Taiwan.
Sharon for his part said the ac-
cord meant that after years of
often humiliating requests by
Israel for U.S. military aid, the
relationship had now been put on
a footing of reciprocity "as be-

HE "promised faithfully'' that

whole episode "hasty, un-
balanced and purposeless." He
mocked Sharon's claims (made in
Washington) that there was a
secret part to the pact. "It is so
secret that even the Americans
don't know about it," Eban said.
Sharon said in Washington
that the memorandum of under-
standing was "unclassified" and
presented to the press. He said
that the working groups and co-
ordinating councils which will
work out the US-Israel agree-
ment may decide on details that
will be classified. Responding to
reports on Israel Radio that there
was a secret codicil to the agree-
ment, Sharon stressed that the
agreement was public and only
some of the later arrangements
might not be publicized.
Both Eban and Am non Rubin-
stein (Shinui) pointed out that by
pledging to help Israel against
forces "outside the region," the
U.S. could be said to have actual-
ly weakened its commitment to
help Israel against its Arab
enemies ("the real enemy," said
Eban) inside the area.
THE SAME point was made
earlier in a press interview by
Minister Without Portfolio Yitz-
hak Modai. He said it had
"occurred to him" only after the
accord was signed. The accord
stated that it "is designed
against the threat to peace and
security of the region caused by
the Soviet Union or Soviet-
controlled forces from outside the
region introduced into the
region" and "is not directed'
against any states within the
Eban hit at the specification of
the USSR. The Americans, he
said, would be negotiating with
Soviets on arms control and other
tension-reducing measures. "We
will be left only with the aggres-
sive and provocative rhetoric" (of
the accord), he said.
Meir Wilner (Communist
Party) warned that Israel was
needlessly baiting the Soviet
Union which had never wavered
in its basic suport for the sover-
eignty and independence of the
Jewish State but opposed only its
occupation of Arab lands. "You
will yet have need of the Soviet
Union," Wilner warned. The ac-
cord, he said, made Israel a
primary "American base" for'
attack against local Arab states. '
argued that the accord would
necessarily constrict Israel's
freedom of military action in the
future. An action such as the raid
on the Iraqi reactor or the "Litani
Operation" would have to be ap-
proved first by Washington, he
noted. But such approval would
not be forthcoming, and if Israel
went ahead without it there
would be a confrontation with the
U.S., Neeman warned.
Both Neeman and Rubinstein
contended that by making an
overt enemy of the Soviets,
Israel's government had heed-
lessly endangered the fates and
future of the Soviet Jewish
commmunity. Rubinstein asked
whether this element was ever
taken into consideration in the

Israel to Proceed With Canal Project]
Despite UN Vote Requesting Halt
JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Energy Minister Yfchatf
Berman announced that Israel intends to proceed with it
plan to build a canal between the Mediterranean and the
Dead Sea despite a vote Monday in the United Nations
General Assembly's Special Political Committee request-
ing Israel to stop all moves to build the canal.
THE VOTE on the Arab-sponsored resolution was
114-2 with three abstentions. Israel and the United States
cast the two negative votes. The Arabs contended that
Israel, as an occupying power is not permitted by in-
ternational law to change the physical nature of the terri- *
tory it holds. Part of the canal is to be built on territory
captured by Israel in the Six-Day War.
Berman said that Israel was willing to discuss the
project with Jordan which has objected to the construc-
tion of the canal.
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
. "find it came to pass, when Joseph was come wito his
brethren, that they stripped Joseph of his coat" (Gen. 37.23).
VAYESHEV Jacob and his sons dwelt in the land of Canaan
as shepherds. Of all his sons, Jacob loved Joseph best. His
obvious favoritism, and Joseph's account of his grandiose
dreams, produced hatred and jealousy among the brothers, Jo-
seph's brothers sold the hated favorite to some Ishmaelite
merchants, who took Joseph to Egypt with them. There Poti-
phar, an officer of the Pharaoh end captain of his guard, bought
Joseph ss a slave. The Hebrew lad quickly rose to a position of
responsibility in his master's household. However, Joseph
rejected the advances of Potiphar's wife; she slandered him, and
he was imprisoned. But in prison, too, God was with Joseph, and
he won the confidence of the jailers. He became known as an in-
terpreter of dreams by correctly reading the significance of the
dreams of the Pharaoh's butler and baker when they were his

HIAS Will Cooperate With Jewish Agency for Now
have sought HIAS'
response to a personal appeal
from Israeli Premier Menachem
Begin, HIAS the Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society has
agreed to cooperate on a trial
basis with a Jewish Agency plan
for the handling of Soviet Jews
arriving in Vienna. The plan,
under which HIAS will assist
Soviet Jewish emigrants only if
they have first degree relatives in
the U.S. or other Western
countries, was introduced by the
Jewish Agency last August.
HIAS participation, some
terms of which are still to be ne-
gotiated, was approved by its
board of directors and was an-
nounced by Edwin Shapiro the
organization's president.
test the plan for a three-month
period starting around Jan. 1 "in
the hope that it will result in a
heavier flow of Jews from th
Soviet Union." He noted that
only 1,136 Jews had left the
USSR during the past three
months "the lowest number in
the last 10 years."
"At the end of three months,"
Shapiro said, "the results will be
evaluated and a determination
made abut continuing the new
policy." He disclosed that he and
HIAS executive vice president
Leonard Seidenman had met with
Begin in Jerusalem Nov. 22. At
PLO Seeks
Ties With
QUITO, Ecuador (JTA) -
Issam Besseiso, the Palestine
Liberation Organization rep-
resentative for the Andean region
of South America, has requested
authorization from the Ecua-
dorian National House of Rep-
resentatives to open a PLO office
in Quito as the first step towards
recognition of a "Palestinian
Besseiso, who is based in Lima,
Peru, where the PLO is not ac-
corded diplomatic status, met
last week with the Legislative
Commission on International Af-
fairs in Quito. The Commission's
president,'Alejandre Carrion, de-
clared, in reference to commonly
accepted international principles
of co-existence "shared by the
Ecuadorian and Palestinian peo-
ples," that "there will be a con-
crete response to each one of the
petitions presented."
PLO approach to the Ecuadorian
government was laid last May.
Gil Barragan, then Vice Presi-
dent of the Ecuadorian House of
Representatives and leader of the
Congressional delegation that
toured the Middle East following
the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border
flare-up of January, was reported
to have stated, in an interview
with the Kuwaiti News Agency,
that Ecuador supported the
Palestinian cause.
When questioned whether
Ecuador would permit the PLO
to open an office, to represent its
interests, in Quito, the legislator
explained: "The Parliament will
support that question if it's ap-
proved by the Minister of
Foreign Relations."
Ecuador, the smallest member
of the Organization of Petroleum
Exporting Countries (OPEC),
has made a strong overture for
support to the Arab nations in
1981. Informed sources in Quito
maintain that this move is mo-
tivated by the need for an ex-
panded market for its goods,
credit with which to finance its
burgeoning internal development
and diplomatic backing in its un-
resolved territorial dispute with
raeli-Ecuadorian relations may
cool noticeably if Ecuador recog-
nizes tba legitimacy of the PL*.
that meeting the Israeli leader
appealed to the organization to
try out the plan.
In a statement issued here,
HIAS explained that under a
long-standing arrangement be-
tween the Jewish Agency and
HIAS, Jewish refugees arriving
in Vienna from the Soviet Union
have been met by Jewish Agency
workers and urged to continue on
to Israel. Until Last August, if
they declined to do so, the Jewish
Agency referred them to HIAS,
which provided assistance in
emigrating to lands other than
"IN AUGUST, however, the
Jewish Agency unilaterally an-
nounced it would no longer refer
to HIAS those Soviet Jews who
on their arrival in Vienna chose
not to go to Israel, "the HIAS
statement said. "The only ex-
ceptions were those who had
spouses, parents or children in
the U.S."
HIAS responded at that time
that it was "not prepared to
refuse its services to Soviet Jew-
ish emigrants who have not been
specifically referred by the Jew-
ish Agency." Since August,
HIAS has been assisting such
emigrants who have sought its
help on their own initiative.
Under the trial plan, the HIAS
statement noted, it is expected
that Soviet Jews who do not wish
to go to Israel will seek the help
of other refugee and resettlement
organizations, both Jewish and
non-Jewish. Funds for Soviet
refugee resettlement to the U.S.
are furnished largely by the
U.S. Government.
zin, chairman of the Jewish
Agency and World Zionist Or-
ganization Executives, welcomed
the decision by HIAS to co-
operate with the Jewish Agency
instead to the anti-Zionist &?
mar HasidK Rav Tov ore,i
tion. Dulzin told Israel &
that even if fewer Soviet jj?
sought Rav Tov's aid under th,
new HIAS arrangement, Jewish
organizations in the Unit*i
States should organize them
plan. This arrangement had been ^fo^ against Rav Tov. "Hue

then dropped by HIAS. he noted.

many Soviet Jews who would

JDC Adopts $39.5 Million
Budget to Help Jews Worldwide
1982 budget of $39.5 million was
adopted by the Board of
Directors of the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee at
ts annual meeting here; and
-lenry Taub, New Jersey
nisinessman and communal
leader, was reelected JDC
president for a second one-year
Ralph Goldman, who was
reelected JDC executive vice
president, reviewed the achieve-
ments of JDC in 1981 and
reported that more than 500,000
persons had been helped around
the world with a total 1981 ex-
penditure of $39,523,000.
IN HIS address Taub spoke of
the "opening windows and
closing doors of Eastern
Europe." Most gratifying, he
said, was the return of the JDC to
Czechoslovakia and Poland in
1981 after an absence of 30 years
in Czechoslovakia and fourteen
years in Poland. Other windows,
he said were opened in previous
years in Hungary, Rumania, and
"IN ALL," Taub said, "some
130,000 to 150.000 Jews in East
European countries are now back
to direct contact with us. On the
other hand." Taub continued .
great big door has closed
Emigration from the Soviet
Union has plummeted from over
4,000 a month to under 400."
The largest item in the 1962
budget of $39.5 million is for
relief and welfare which, at $13.7
million, constitutes 37.1 percent
of the total. The second largest
item in the budget. Jewish
education, at $9.4 million is 25.5
percent. Among the other budget
items by category are services to
the aged, $4.2 million or 11.4
percent, and health services at
$3.4 million or 9.2 percent.
The Diminishing Pledge
The Pledge
Paid 1 year late I Paid 2 years late
Value $390.00 i Paid 3 years late
Value $85.00
To keep Jewish Agency programs going, a substantial amount of
money must be borrowed each year, which is repaid when pledges
are collected.
The prime rate is 18 percent. Loans today are made at .5 percent
over prime or 18.5 percent.
Inflation runs in excess of 12 percent a year.
This adds up to a loss in value on uncollected pledges of no less
than 30.5 percent each year.
For thousands of men, women and children who depend on the
redemption of our pledges, this is a promise unkept a trust betrayed.
Cash is Needed Now. More Than Ever.
