By JUDITH KOHN
A former Jewish dissident
who emigrated from the
Soviet Union five years ago
has criticized the Rev. Billy
Graham for his conduct
during and following a con-
troversial trip to the USSR
The former dissident, Mark
Azbel, confronted Graham dur-
ing a panel discussion last
Sunday on ABC-TV's "This
Week with David Brinkley,"
following an interview with the
minister that was televised by
satellite from London. Azbel's
appearance was broadcast from
ABC-TV's studio in Washington,
GRAHAM, whose trip to the
Soviet Union has been denounced
by critics as a propaganda
triumph for the Soviet govern-
ment, had been invited there to
attend a Soviet-sponsored world
gathering of religious leaders op-
posed to nuclear war.
The minister was feted by Sov-
iet officials and at Christian
churches, where he preached the
Gospel of Jesus. Traditionally an
outspoken critic of the Soviet
Union, Graham suggested to the
press in Moscow that some re-
ligious freedoms are enjoyed in
the USSR, pointing to what he
said were the large numbers of
people who attend church serv-
In a bitter interchange with
Graham, the former Soviet dissi-
dent challenged the minister's
authority "t'o tell what goes on
with freedom of religion in Russia
attempts by Graham to respond,
Azbel attacked the minister's
suggestion that his meetings
with "the Jewish leadership" in
Moscow and with the city's chief
rabbi was anything more than a
sham. "The Jewish leadership
does not want to talk about
has nothing to do with Jews in
Moscow or anywhere," he told
Graham. "The chief rabbi in
Russia is not even qualified to be
a rabbi. You don't know that."
Azbel, whose emigration from
the Soviet Union was permitted
only after a five-year battle with
the authorities, was a founding
member of the Moscow Sunday
Seminar, established for
scientists whose positions had
been revoked by the government
upon their application for emi-
gration visas, as a way of up-
dating one another on develop-
ments in their fields.
Azbel pressed Graham to ac-
knowledge that his trip to the
USSR did not provide him with
authoritative information on the
state of religion and religious
practices in the Soviet Union. In
a lengthy emotional statement,
"WOULD YOU mind putting
it straight? You met leaders. You
bring the message from leaders
who are opposed to the people,
and this is the only thing you
know of. You do not know the
opinion of the people in Russia.
Have you met 10 common Jews
who pray, 10 common persons
who pray? Have you met people
who are in prison? Do you have
any knowledge but the knowl-
edge of the official who ap-
proached you? And if not, can
you speak in the name of the peo-
ple who are desperate in Russia
without you undermining their
The minister, interrupted at
every pause, insisted that "there
are millions of people in the Sovi-
et Union that go to church on
Sunday." But he conceded that
"restrictions" on religious prac-
tices have been in existence since
the revolution. Referring to
Soviet worshippers affected by
those restrictions, Graham
added, "... sometimes they
become stronger; sometimes they

Azbel is a professor at the
University of Pennsylvania's De-
partment of Physics. He ap-
peared on Sunday's television
panel together with Methodist
minister Edmund Robb, chair-
man of the Institute on Religion
Although Robb's comments
were less emotive than Azbel's
sharp tonguelashing, he was no
less critical of Graham's visit to
the Soviet Union.

Daniel told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the situa-
tion surrounding the Tel Aviv
synagogue was one example why
members of the Reform move-
ment feel threatened by the at-

religious life is dominated by the

ACCORDING TO the Reform
leader, Israelis were not suffi-
ciently aware of the resentment,
not only among American Jews,
but hundreds of thousands of
Jews in other countries such as
France and Argentina, caused by
the strengthening of anti-Reform
measures by the Orthodox estab-
lishment in Israel.
He said the synagogue project,
in which the World Union of
Progressive Judaism has already
invested $80,000, was approved
by the city planning and zoning
commission in Tel Aviv and by
the municipality which provided
the land unconditionally. It is
being held up by the district
commission, he said.

The Shavuot Holiday
We begin the celebration of Shavuot on Thursday
evening, followed by two days of the observance Fri-
day and Saturday. The holiday falls within a week of
the international observance of Jerusalem Day, offi-
cially marked last Friday, in honor of the unification
of Jerusalem during the Six-Day War of June, 1967.
Both oberservances echo Israel's return to free-
dom Shavuot comes seven weeks after Passover,
the holiday that marks the Exodus from Egypt.
Shavuot, among other names, is known as Hag ha-
Kazir ("Harvest Feast"), thus underscoring its sig-
nificance as one of the three pilgrim festivals (Deut.
16:16), and marking the end of the barley and begin-
ning of the wheat harvest.
But Shavuot is also known as Z'man mattan Tora-
tenu (" the time of the giving of our Torah"), in com-
memoration of the Ten Commandments which were
presented by God to Moses on Mount Sinai. In any
case, it was during the Jewish wanderings in the
desert in preparation for the return from slavery in
Egypt that the ancient Israelites became the recipi-
ents and keepers of God's law.
It is the coincidence of this aspect of the return to
freedom and the celebration of Jerusalem Day, the
reunification of a divided Jerusalem 15 years ago.
that both observances today emphasize their highest
Mr. Reagan's Afterthought
All of the social and economic issues embodied in
the four major amendments to the United States
Constitution that the Administration is pressing for
today are controversial to the point of white heat.
Efforts to control abortion, prayer in the schools,
busing and a balanced budget encourage enthusiastic
debate to the point of public anger on both sides of
The argument has already been made that the Ad-
ministration, especially in the case of the proposed
amendments on abortion and prayer in the schools,
appears to be emphasizing these particular social
items because President Reagan has thus far been
unsuccessful in his economic programs designed to
control a runaway budget.
Those who make this point seem to want us to
know that the President is in effect attempting to
pay back political debts he owes to the extreme
rightwing which he incurred during the 1980 cam-
Be that as it may, the proposed prayer amendment
gives nothing to any of the social and economic is-
sues embodied in the other amendment proposals
either in heat or controversy.
Whatever reason Mr. Reagan has to press for
prayer in the schools, he is a difficult man to convince
otherwise once he has put his stamp on an issue.
Some are questioning whether or not the President's
stature and knowledge give him the authority sin-
cerely to believe that the imposition of voluntary
school prayers would not pose a type of emotional
threat to youngsters in a classroom.
Still, Mr. Reagan joined the issue with his now
famous (or infamous) statement: "No one will ever
convince me that a moment of voluntary prayer will
harm a child or threaten a school or state." Whatever
the President may think, however, is beside the
point. The Constitution spoke on this basic issue
long before Mr. Reagan ever really thought about it.
So have the courts.
Ah Ed Asner, SayJt^Ain 't So
THE DISTINGUISHED la-
bor columnist, Victor Riesel. baa

Rkssel argues that Asners
claim is specious that he and his
network series. 'Lou Grant." lost
their jobs to a new national
blacklist force reminiscent of the
Joe McCarthy era. particularly.
as McCarthy and his henchmen
focused on what were purported
to be Communist activities a-
mong Broadway theatre and
Hollywood movie stars.
RIESEL IS especially irritated
by Asners reference to the new
biaddisters as Yahoos, those per-
haps not too fictional figures in
Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's
Travels.' who are crude and vul-
gar and uneducated and who
therefore ride tall in the saddle of
On the contrary, says Rieael.
Asner and the "Lou Grant"
series went out of business be-
cause the series was "dull, unreal,
and a weird characterization of
city editors few of us ever knew in
our city-room days." a television
critique weird in itself to be made
by a sightless person.
If this is in the category of
cruel commentary, then consider
that Rieael is himself cruel, if not
downright inaccurate. One may
perhaps consider that Asners
charge that there is a new black-
list, by which he really means a
new Ronald Reagan enemies list,
to be in the nature of something
concocted in Asners own fantasy
world, a fact in the form of fic-
tion, pure speculation at best and
still to be documented.
BUT ONE can not rewrite his-
tory, as Riesel has done in his Ed
Asner column, to downgrade the
power or the danger of the old
blacklist days under the fiery
aegis of Joseph R. McCarthy.
For example, argues Riesel. it
is not true that "leftists were
driven from their Beverly Hills
swimming pools into exile ... To
the contrary. anti-Communists
were blacklisted by the left, and
where this wasn't possible, the
anti-Communists were harassed,
maligned and often lost starring
roles and the sales of movie
scripts that would have brought
them scores of thousands of pre-
in Ration dollars."
If you don't believe him. de-
clares Riesel. just consider that
"Today there are still those in
Hollywood and one man in the
White House who remember
how the late Western stars. Ward
Bond and John Wayne, suffered
under constant assault."
The sad professional ex-
perience of Larry Parks, whose
career died overnight after it was
launched by his highly-successful
performsnce in "The Jolson
Story." sets the fie to Riesel's
myth-making. Does the man in
the White House remember
Parks, too? Or the life and work
of the harmonica virtuoso. Larrv
AND YOU have only to reread
the experienced perceptions of
one of America's distinguished
dramatists who lived through it
as a first-hand observer. Lillian
Hellman, to know just how real
the McCarthy impact was on
Broadway and Hollywood. And,
m the end, just how wild and
irresponsible Riesel s column is
on this subject
In affect, Rieael casts the vil-
lain as victim and the victim as
villain, a process he seems to be
learning moat effectively from
the very people who got Ed As-
ner in the fust place, and whose
stooge Riesel ought not to be. not
if he is to continue in his role as a
journalist martyred in the cause
of the common man
Riesel's alliance with the Res
ganites in this "ntr is very
real indeed. Already, he speaks
the language of their ambiguities
and innuendo Arguing further
that it was the leftists who did all
the damage in the McCarthy as-
sault on Hollywood and Broad-
way, not the anti-Communists.
Riesel writes: "The leftists
smeared one Jewish star as an
anti-Semite. Only his fame and
talent kept him in pictures."
WHY THE sudden ano-
nymity? Why the sudden eoft
treatment? The answer is that to
speak specifically of John Gar-
field would be to lay the question (
to rest by sound, not subjective,.
explanation. It is precisely the
generality of Riesel's statement
that rekindles in the average
reader's mind the canard that all
Jews are Communists except
those rare birds like Gsrfield who
aren't, or weren't, and they are
victimized in the end by their
own co-religinists who label them
Riesel s propagandistk equa-
tion is stated in the negative: a-
mong Jews, to be anti-Com-
munist is to be anti-Jewish It is,
in its own way, as Yahoo as any-
thing else, including Riesel's per-
sistent references to the
McCarthy vultures as anti-Com-
munist and their victims as left-

are Communists: when, in fact,

nist; while McCarthy and his ilk.
far from being anti-Communist,
were simply unmentionable, if
And. in this context, need any-
one be reminded that Ed Asner
is. of course, Jewish?
I AM MOVED here to argue
that what disturbs me most
about the entire affair is the pres-
sure that wss brought to bear on
CBS-TV to fire Ed Asner and
drop the series in which he
starred. Riesel-type arguments as
to the dramatic success or failure
of the series are quite irrelevant
in an electronic wasteland of tele-
vision where the Yahoos reaf/y
ride tall in the saddle, where con-
siderations such as artistic or
social merit are a profound obsce-

wicked if it weren't so divinely
But even more important than
these considerations is why CBS-
TV succumbed to the pressure.
Needed is s public examination of
the nature of the pressure. It is
by now widely acknowledged
that the White House has a sys-
tem of teletype monitors that
permits it to preview corres-
pondents' copy in transmission
and to argue newspapers out of
publishing the copy or into
"softening" it even before the
newspapers themselves have had
a chance to make their own deci-

crisscrossed the country in that
mad President's cause. la the
perennial FCC threat not to
renew a broadcaster's license the
next weapon in the Reagan Ad-
ministration's escalation of the
war against free speech?
Was "Lou Grant" an early vic-
tim of such First Amendment re-
pression? That is what the public
needs to know. Without this
knowledge, efforts such as Rie-
sel's to dskn that the show fell
victim to the TV audience's
boredom with its alleged dullness
are an absurdity. Mainly, it does
not square with the initial CBS
reaction to the Kimberiey-Clan:
cancellation of the aeries, who,

California freelance writer John

This sounds like a line out of any
old "Lou Grant" script, it is thit
inspired. Then Asner adds: "I
also know, and am delighted,
that most people in this country
aren't fooled by 'that election

THE TRUTH more nearly is
that most Americans wouldn't

frankly: "I think most of the
negative response to me comes
from people who have been afraid
to open their mouths all their
lives. The way I used to feel
about Jane Fonda when she was
stirring up that hornet's nest in

T7i Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Andrew Osiason Named Plant Valedictorian
By JUDITH ROSENKRANZ
It is a fact. Andrew Osiason, son of Burton and
Lorna Osiason. will be the fifth consecutive
valedictorian of H.B. Plant High School who is a
member of Congregation Schaarai Zedek.
Not only is it a matter of synagogue affiliation,
all five have been confirmands of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek. In 1978, it was Robin Haas; in
1979. Tom Barkin; in 1980. Beth Osiason
(Andrew's first cousin); in 1981, Brad Haas and
now it is Andrew Osiason.
Now. there have been other high schools with
Schaarai Zedek valedictorians. We mention Lisa
Meyer at Leto High in 1982 and Sam Weiner at
Jesuit in 1980, but they were not part of a line of
succession such as this one.
Rabbi Frank Sundheim, rabbi of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek for the past 16 years, commented,
"I note with pride that five consecutive confir-
mands of our temple have been recognized for
their scholarship at Plant. Besides being bright,
they are all very fine young people of whom I'm
Andrew will graduate May 31 from Plant High
with a 4.662 average out of a possible four points.
That's right. The extra points derive from taking
honors classes. He *as selected by the senior
class as Most Likely to Succeed and was the de-
signer of the cover of the yearbook. At the senior
awards assembly, he received a Golden Panther in
math indicating his being the top math student.
He was also honored for being captain of the
Alpha Math Bowl Team. He was a participant in
the Math Bowl all three of his high school years.
Andrew is president of Mu Alpha Theta, math
honor society, treasurer of National Honor
Society and a member of I Dare You. a society for
students who have made straight As in two
consecutive quarters. He also is a member of Gold
and Black which represents service to the school,
scholastics, citizenship and athletics.
"Being valedictorian is something 1 always
wanted to be. but I really didn't plan on it. I did
my best, but didn't compete with anyone.''
Andrew told us. He was quick to add that of his
years in school, his senior year was by far the
Providence. R.I. and Brown University is
Andrew's next stop, but that wilLtaot be un-
familiar territory. Providence is 4us mother's
home town and her school. Pembroke (now part of
co-ed Brown) was the girl's college of Brown. "I
didn't even apply to my dad's alma mater,
Wharton. I really wanted to go to Brown.'' said
Andrew. He knows there are aunts, uncles,
cousins and a grandmother, Ida Paster, in Provi-
dence who are delighted that he will be there.
Selected as one of the Tampa Times honor stu-
dents, he is considering pre-med as his course of
study and feels that computer science and
engineering and math will be his back ups should
he change his mind.
This summer Andrew will be returning to
Camp Coleman in Cleveland. Ga. for this tenth
summer. He will be a counselor, swimming in-
structor and tennis teacher. "I teach better than I
play it." Andrew laughingly said.
Neal. Andrew's brother, is a senior pre-law stu-
dent at the University of Florida in Gainesville
and Lauren, their sister, is a junior at Emory Uni-
versity Nursing School in Atlanta.

Ghorbal Suggests U.S. Dialogue
(JTA)- Ashraf Ghorbal,
Egypt's Ambassador to the
United States, suggested
that the Reagan Adminis-
tration conduct a "dia-
logue" with the Palestine
Liberation Organization as
a means to induce the PLO
to "take the steps" toward
recognition of Israel. At the
same time, Ghorbal warned
Israel against continuing
its assistance to Iran in its
war against Iraq.
"The United States is not at
war with the PLO," Ghorbal said
in a wide ranging discussion on
Middle East issues sponsored by
the American Enterprise Insti-
tute, a conservative think-tank.
The PLO, Ghorbal said, "seek
only an understanding, a psycho-
logical umbrella, a dialogue be-
tween the U.S. and the PLO
which will be destined to help the
PLO be convinced that they take
the steps that we all want them
GHORBAL POINTED out
that the PLO has but "one trump
card," that of recognition of Isra-
el, and "if they give that away,
they have nothing to use in nego-
tiations." The United States'
policy for years has been to with-
hold any direct negotiations with
the PLO until the organization
recognizes Israel's right to exist
and accepts United Nations
Security Council Resolutions 242
The Egyptian envoy also said
Israel "should rethink its atti-
tude" of providing assistance to
Iran in its war with Iraq. "Israel
must look at the situation not
simply as the enemy of my enemy
is my friend but what augurs for
the Middle East in the case of the
(Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhol-
lah) Khomeini fire sweeping the'
area," Ghorbal said. He did not

Normalized relations between
Egypt and Arab rejectionist
states, Ghorbal argued, should be
seen as a benefit to Israel because
Cairo could now serve as a
"broker" between the Jewish
State and the Arab countries in
the region. He said the peace
treaty with Israel was part of a
"strategic course" for solving the
Referring to the continued
violence on the West Bank, the
Egyptian Ambassador urged Is-
rael to "tone down its rhetoric
and action" in the occupied terri-
tories, noting that this was im-
perative as negotiations were
scheduled to begin for autonomy
for the 1.3 million Palestinian
Arabs in these areas. He urged
the United States to "again
activate its role as a full partner"
in the autonomy negotiations.

Hit List Prove
Link to PLO
ROME -tfTA) A
list that included Israel's
Ambassador to Italy,
Moshe Allon, and the
Military' Attache of the
Israel Embassy in Rome
was cited by an Italian
Judge as clear evidence
of the collaboration be-
tween the Red Brigade
and the Palestine Libera-
Judge Pino Amato, the public
prosecutor in the trial of Red Bri-
gade terrorist Antonio Savasta
who is charged with the murder
of former Premier Aldo Moro,
said the one fact in Savasta's tes-
timony that must be given com-
plete credibility was that
regarding the PLO-Red Brigade
agreement by which the PLO
smuggled weapons and explo-
sives to the Red Brigade in ex-
change for terrorist acts by the
latter against Israel.
ACCORDING to Savasta's
confession, a PLO-Red Brigade
attempt on the lives of the Israeli
diplomats was planned over a
year ago under the terms of the
agreement. Judge Amato said
the proof was an incident in the
fall of I960 when two Italian ter-
rorists, Nicoletti and Bruno Seg-
hetti, were arrested in Naples and
found to be carrying notes with
the names, telephone numbers
and other details, written in Eng-
lish, of the Israeli Ambassador's
dairy schedule in Rome and the
schedule of the Military Attache. .

Our sages had a special name
for the Biblical festival of
Shavuot. They called it
"Atzeret" meaning "conclusion."
Their implication was that
Passover was the beginning of a
special season of the year and
Shavuot was its conclusion. They
perceived of an intimate connec-
tion between the two holidays.
On an agricultural level,
Passover celebrates the beginn-
ing of the Spring Harvest. As the
sun warms the earth, the grain
begins to ripen in the field and
summer fruits begin to soften
and become edible. By Shavuot
the harvest has begun in earnest
and on the holiday itself
"Bikurim," the first fruits were
brought to Jerusalem and offered
to God when the Temple was in
existence. Thus Shavuot is the
"Atzeret," the culmination, of
the harvesting process begun on
Shavuot is Friday, May 28
and Saturday May 29.
But there is also an intellectual
connection between the festivals
as well. Passover celebrates the
Exodus from Egypt. After years
of slavery and oppression the
Israelites were at last free to
leave Egypt, worship as they
pleased, and eventually enter the
Promised Land. However, short-
ly after they began their desert
adventure, exactly 50 days after
they left Egypt, on the festival of
Shavuot, they found themselves
standing at the base of Mt. Sinai.
There they received the Ten
Commandments and responded
"Na' aseh V'nishma", "All that
we have heard we will faithfully
By calling Shavuot "Atzeret"
our sages also informed us that
there is an intimate connection
between the Freedom the
Israelites savored on Passover
and the Law they received on
Freedom is a wonderful human
right. Freedom, however, not
tempered by law and restraint
can be disastrous for a society.
True freedom does not mean that
one can do whatever one pleases
whenever one wants, but rather
that one may exercise his-her
options within a legal, ethical and
moral framework. True freedom
does not mean social and politi-
cal anarchy, but rather that one
must accept responsibility for the
fate of his-her fellow human
beings if society is to function
equitably and harmoniously.
Leaving Egypt, the Israelites
were a mixed multitude. They
were a free but unorganized and
unmotivated people. At Mt. Sinai
they felt God's commanding pre-
sence and accepted his Torah,
His "blue print" for life. They be-
came a society when they learned
that their newly found freedom
carried with it the responsibility
and imperative of their protect-
ing the rights of others.

trees will be planted in the

During the first few weeks after the introduc

1981. anti-Semitic propaganda was widely des-
seminated throughout the country, and despite
fficiai assurances that the government would
"combat anti-Semitism resolutely. Polish Jew-
ish organizations suffered unpleasant incidents of
mistreatment when martial law was declared.

military regime in Poland is analyzed by Dr.

Fully 10 per cent of all cases submitted to the

He was addressing the closing dinner of the

The forests planted in Israel for decades by the
Jewish National Fund are in danger of destruc-
tion from a combination of air pollution, pests,
and natural processes of degradation. Landscape
ecologists in the Faculty of Agricultural En-
gineering of the Technion Israel Institute of
Technology are researching plants that could bet-
ter withstand these forces. The JNF has estab-
lished a recreational forest in the lower Galilee
based on the work of the Technion team.
"The success of the Jewish National Fund's
Forest Division, in planting, maintaining and
utilizing these pine forests, even in the harshest
conditions, has given the mistaken impression
that we can fool nature' by creating closed, re-
latively long-lived, productive conifer forests like
those in subalpine climates in Europe." says Prof.
"However, in forests aged 40 to 50 years, there
are alarming signs of early decline, and the future
production of even younger stands is severely
threatened by combined impacts of air pollution j|
and pest infestation."
Reform synagogues across the country are
gearing up to implement a recent call by the

convert the non-Jewish partners of mixed mar-

Alexander M. Schindler. About 30 percent of the
150 Reform synagogues affiliated with UAHC are
initiating projects to educate intermarried
couples and involve them in Jewish life.
The synagogues are responding to a decision by
UAHC last December to launch a nationwide
campaign aimed at "spreading the message of
Judaism to non-Jewish partners in mixed mar
riages. to the children of such marriages and to
persons of no religious preference."
The historic action, says Rabbi Schindler.

Weinberger Given Lasl
On Jordan by Cabinet
By HUGH ORGEL
And GIL SEDAN
The Cabinet has accused
U S Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger of pay-
ing 'lip service" to Israel s
security while advocating
the sale of advanced
American weaponry "to the
enimies of Israel Jordan
The charge was contained in a
statement released after the
weekly Cabinet session during
which Premier Menachem Begin
assailed Weinberger for saying
that the sale of sophisticated air
defense systems to Jordan was in
the strategic interest of the U.S.
Weinberger spoke at a luncheon
of the Foreign Policy Association
in New York last Friday.
HE REPORTEDLY said that
Jordan needed the American
weaponry becuase was
squeezed between hostile Syria
and Iran. According to the
Cabinet secretary. Begin told the
ministers. "I am sorry to say this
is a misleading statement.'" He
claimed that Jordan was not
squeezed because Iran is not a
neighbor and the two countries
are separated by a large desert
and the territory of Iraq.
According to Begin. Jordan
decided of its own accord to join
Iraq in an aggressive war against
Iran. "The real reason which
moved Jordan to ask for modern
sophisticated weapons from the
US is neither Syria nor Iran, but
Israel." Begin reportedly said.
He added: "It is true that lip
service has again been paid to as-
suring the so-called edge of Is-
rael. But how can it be main-
tained if only a score of miles

marks. "To give such weapons to
