ency Treasurer Akiva Lewin-

leaders on the current Mid-
ast crisis in a special meeting

pact on the programs and serv-

principal beneficiary of fund allo-
Bted from UJA-Community
"Dramatic events in the
liddle East have created a new
fet of priorities and challenges for
he American Jewish communi-
v," Loup saia in announcing the
peeling. "It is essential that our

Against Jews, Institutions
Michael L. Levine, President of the Tampa Jew-
ish Federation and Gary Alter, Executive Direc-
tor, returned from a special UJA mission to Israel
which took place Aug. 1-5. While there they spent
a day in Lebanon. Upon their return there have
been numerous radio, television and newspaper
interviews where they were able to describe what
they saw. Levine addressed the members of Con-
gregation Rodeph Sholom on Friday evening,
Aug. 6, and Alter reported his impressions at
Congregation Schaarai Zedek also on Aug. 6. The
editorial below is a result of an interview with
Tampa Times editor Jim Tally and Gary Alter.

WAR IS HELL, especially
when you see it in bloody color
every evening on the 7 o'clock
news. In our longest of wars, the
winless one in Vietnam, the car-
nage and the defoliation and the
destruction were awesome
enough to spur an inglorious end
to it. Today the network cameras
are dutifully recording those
blasts of bomb, rocket, mortar
and artillery shell in the heart of a
once-beautiful Lebanese city,
We see pictures of mothers
fleeing with children in their
arms. We see scenes of pain and
death in hospital wards. We see
puffs of white smoke from the ar-
tillery and black smoke from the
tanks. We see Israeli soldiers fir-
ing the guns into the western pits
of the city. We see Yasser Arafat
smiling for the camera and vow-
ing to fight until death with his
6.000 besieged Palestine Liber-
ation Organization guerrillas.
But is what we see what really
is taking place in Lebanon? Is it
fair for the whole world to turn
against Israel in her fight with
the PLO? Even in the United
States there seems to be an un-
usual outpouring of support for
terrorists who have plagued the
towns of Galilee for years, people
who have organized into sophis-
ticated army brigades with the
expressed intention of crushing
Israel. Instead of waiting for this
to happen and continuing to suf-
fer the indignities of PLO border
attacks, Israel invaded Lebanon
and quickly pushed the PLO
northward. Perhaps half the PLO
forces were killed or captured.
Apparently many of the leaders
ran for Beirut, there to hide be-
hind the half million civilians in
the western part of the city.
For weeks now, while Presi-
dent Reagan's special envoy
shuttles around trying to stop
the killing, the Israeli troops
have been at the doorstep of the
PLO, gradually squeezing the
vise-grip. The President's well-
intentioned overtures for peace
have served to give the PLO a
sense of false hope. But if there is
eventually a negotiated settle-
ment and the PLO is allowed
to march out of Lebanon it will
be because Israel kept the pres-
sure on and not because Mr.
Reagan kept suggesting that the
Israelis cut and run from their
cornered quarry.
With this backdrop, Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
hosted 190 Americans who are
prime supporters of the United
Jewish Appeal. They flew just
this last week to Israel, then to
Lebanon, for a first-hand look at
what they've been reading about

Boy! Were we excited to hear that Brian Robert Linsky had
finally arrived. We know that his parents, Robin and Elliott
Linsky, are downright thrilled too. This little fellow made his
appearance Aug. 3 at Womens Hospital, at 5:30 p.m. He
weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and was 21" long. The proud
grandparents are Tampans Eugene and Gerry Linsky and Pearl
Steam, Miami. The Great-Grandmother is Tampan, Eva
Linsky. Much happiness and many good wishes to all of you on
this wonderful event.
Well, when Robyn Brinen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Phil
Brinen, and Dr. Bob Kessler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter
Kesaler, were married on Sunday, Aug. 1, with approximately
100 out-of-town guests in addition to their many Tampa friends
and relatives celebrating with them, it was not before they had
been royally feted and entertained.
A Kitchen Gadget and Recipe Luncheon-Shower was hosted
by Harriet Krentzman, Esther Latnik. Frances Shearer, Betty
Solomon, Louise Walker, and Esther Weiss.
The Friday Night Shabbat Dinner was hosted at Congrega-
tion Schaarai Zedek by Margie and Bernie Bernstein, Ina and
Howard Haubenstock, Shirley and Jay Hoffman, Gerry and
Eugene Linsky, Lena and Jack Pila, Herta and Solomon Pila,
Helen and Moses Reiber, and Doris and Frank Rosenblatt. The
Oneg Shabbat. following services, was hosted by Pauline
Rosenau, Laurie and Milton Boniuk, and Janet and George
Waas, all relatives of the Groom's Mother. Extra goodies baked
for the Oneg Shabbat and for the Hospitality Room at the hotel
where the guests stayed were made by Eve Gilbert, Nancy
Linsky, Karen Linsky, and Jan Bloom.
A Saturday Brunch was hosted by Theresa Kessler, and
Rostyn and Richard WHtcoff. The Saturday Rehearsal Dinner
was hosted by Lee and Walter Kessler at the Tower Club.
A Sunday Brunch was given in the Grand Ballroom at the
Host International Hotel by Beverly and Mel Fruit, Janet and
Michael Kass. Elaine and Otto Weitzenkorn, Fred and Bill
Witkoff, and Ann Bowman.
Amazingly enough Robyn and Bob were not so full that they
couldn't walk down the aisle. A very beautiful portion of their
wedding ceremony was the poem that the bride and groom spoke
to each other, which was specially written for them be Robyn's
uncle Dr. Fred Witcoff. Also, due to a last minute illness, the
groom's cousin from Houston, Texas, could not serve as a
groomsman, so good friend Jeffrey Bloom stood in (and conven-
iently fit in the same size tux!) It was truly a beautiful (and
breathless) weekend!
We sure will miss Dr. Norman and Jane Rosenthsl, and their
two sons, Danny and Jesse, who just moved to Miami five days
ago. Norman has become Chief of Radiology at South Shore
Hospital. The Rosenthals will be residing on Normandy Isle, in
Miami Beach, and want all of their Tampa friends to be sure to
call them when they get down to Miami. Jane will be continuing
with her Public Relations and Marketing Consulting business.
"Rosenthal and Associates" in Miami, and at the same time will
be maintaining her office here in Tampa. On her frequent trips
back here she will not be maintaining his private practice of
Radiology in the Carrollwood area, and has recently taken on an
associate Dr. Pedro Soler. So I guess we won't really be com-
pletely losing the Rosenthals afterall, rather, we will just be see-
ing them on a part-time basis. Lots of luck to all of you in your
new city.
The Tampa Evening Chapter of Women's American ORT will
honor their re-enrolled members with a poolside fashion show on
Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the home of Wendy and Erwin Katz in

off right. At 9 p.m. at the home of Dr. Arthur and Sue Formaa,
the parents will gather for a secret auction and patio buffet.

Eleven year old Lisa Stevens, daughter of Dr. Michael end
Beverly Stevens really really did shine at the closing ceremonies
at Dunbar Sixth Grade Center. Out of five classes, Lisa was the
only student to receive a special certificate of achievement in the
Newbery Club, (an award established by the school librarian to
be given to any student who read at least 20 of the Newbay |

The Jewish Community Center is certainly elated to welcome |
back Marilyn Thibodeau. This time she will be serving as Ad |
rrunistrative Assistant to the JCC Pre-School Director, Barbara
Richman. Marilyn, mother of Linda Omen Crain (who taught at
the JCC for a number of years) has been a part of the working
staff of our center, in one capacity or another, off and on (mostly
on), since 1962, when the JCC was still located in Hyde Park.
She has worked in various office jobs, was office manager, and in
general could do almost anything that needed to be done,
throughout her many years of her service. So, needless to say,
Barbara is thrilled to have such a capable person on her staff-
Marilyn will be systemizing and organizing the Pre-School of-
fice, books, and paperwork. In addition, she will be dealing with
the parents, answering their questions, etc., in hopes that Bat>
bara can have more time to hold private conferences, work wif"
the teachers, observe in the classrooms, etc. Marilyn will be I
the JCC Main Branch, five mornings a week. In the afternoon*,
Jania Heustis, Head Teacher at the JCC North Branch, will be
coming in to serve at Barbara's Assistant. We all look forward
lo an extremely productive and organized year at the marvelous
JCC Pre-School.

Rodeph Sholom Sisterhood Celebrates 65th Anniversary
At a special Birthday Celebra-
tion Meeting, Rodeph Sholom
Sisterhood celebrated its 65th
An original "This is your life,
Sisterhood" script was prepared
by Ethel Field. Past Presidents
and officers contributed with
their memories of years of service
and a history of the organization.
On August 14, 1917, a Ladies
Auxiliary to Temple Rodeph
Sholom was formed. The first
president was Mrs. J.L. Mairson.
The aims and purposes were: "To
perpetuate traditional Judaism
by helping our Congregation
socially, finadally and religious-
ly." In the 1920s dues were .50
cents- a month. In the 1930's a-
closing luncheon was .75 cent a
plate. In the 1940's the Gift Shop
was instituted, the religious
school was run by Sisterhood and
the first community Seder was
established. With the '50s came
the birth of USY and the year-
book was published with added
In 1960, during Ann Zack's
presidency, the Interfaith Teas
were established along with
Torah Fund, Art shows and
dinner dances. In the 1970's. cat-
ering committees, Mitzvah
luncheons and fashions shows
and circles were added.
On June 21, 22, 23, 1980 Con-
gregation Beth Israel and Con-
TJF Shalom-Tampa Hosts
Newcomer Party
gregation Rodeph Sholom
merged, so did the Sisterhoods.
"Sisterhood has grown in 65
years our community has
grown. We are faced with the
same problems now as then: not
enough people to do the work,
poor attendance at meetings, col-
lection of back dues, donations to
the Building Fund to avoid pay-
ing a higher rate of interest on
the note that had come due. Our
budget has grown from hundreds
to thousands, our membership
from teens to hundreds. But our
basic purpose is still to perpetu-
ate traditional Judaism by help-
ing our Congregation socially, fi-
nancially and religiously. At this
our 65th Birthday Party, we
must fulfil our obligation to those
who came before us by preparing
for those who will come after us
so that in another 65 years our
children and grandchildren will
say thank you to us as we are
now saying thank you to our pre-
decessors for the legacy of hope
and love we are now enjoying."

Those Fancy French
When would-be assassins made their at-
tempt on the life of Israel's Ambassador to
Great Britain Shlomo Argov, the police gave
chase and caught them. Lucky? Well, per-
But the murder by terrorists in Paris many
months ago of Israeli envoy Jacob Barsiman-
tov and the repeated bombings of Jewish in-
stitutions and the terrorist slaughter of Jews
and non-Jews accidentally in the neighbor-
hood of their activity leave French authori-
ties baffled. Unlucky? Well, perhaps.
In fact, following the shoot-out at the Gold-
enberg restaurant in the Marais section of
Paris a week ago Monday, police found and
detained eight persons of the notorious left-
wing A.D. organization with a strong Arab
base suspected of perpetrating that murder-
ous operation. They were released for lack of
evidence of implication.
The very next day, after their release, Wed-
nesday of last week, members of that same
terrorist organization struck again, this time
at a building housing commercial firms linked
with Israel and a Jewish-owned bank, causing
heavy damage and seriously injuring a
The French are really no more selfish in
their national interest than any other Euro-
pean people. What makes them so sleazy,
however, is their imperiousness. their unre-
lenting pretention to cultivation and morality
about which they ceaselessly lecture the rest
of the world.
At the same time, their anti-Semitism has
been irrepressible in the face of modern Euro-
pean history. In this, they remind us of the
Russians and the Poles whose ignorant
medievalism, however, is more understand-
able given the oppression under which they
We find small hope in the flood of state-
ments issued by international organizations
and personalities deploring the events in
France. They are senseless. French authori-
ties appear determined "to find no evidence."
The agony of French selective morality will
not be assuaged by these statements. The far
more bewildering turn of events is the simul-
taneous selection of the French as the first
force to enter Lebanon in the coming disen-
gagement in Beirut.
For that is the same as leaving a contingent
of PLOor Svrian forces behind.
250 Arrive From U.S. To
Begin Semi-Military Training
group <>f some 250 young men
and women trom the New York
area have arrived in Israel and
begun semi-military training for
a few days before serving as
volunteer- in settlements on the
iolan Heights from which many
regular members have left their
work to answer their reserve call-
up orders. Another group of 250
- due to join them next week.
The 5 nave volunteered are mainly be-
tween the ages of 1^ and 30. but
then art- also some married
couples in their late 40s who have
also joined the group. All partici-
pants are paying their own fares
to and from Israel, but their stay-
in Israel is being borne by the
kibbutzim where they will work.
Jews from the U.S. and other
countires have always volun-
teered to help the kibbutzim and
farmers in Israel in previous
wars. But this is the first time
they are also being offered a form
of basic military training This,
however, is of greater pay-
chological value to the partici-
pants than it is of actual mili-
tary value to the army.
The Real America Is Still Alia
An Arab in kefayah looks
from the balcony of his suite at
the Inn here across the road and
up toward Mt. Washington
where, at the hotel in 1943, some
40-odd nations met to stabilize
the international monetary
system after World War II predi-
cated on the price of gold at $35
All of that is changed. These
days, gold sells for ten times
that, or thereabouts. And, in ret-
rospect, the Allied powers
achieved nothing but a reprieve
from violence now turned into
global terrorism. As for the Arab
peering from his balcony hardly
40 years later up toward the hotel
on Mt. Washington, his presence
at least for me contributes to
making the brisk 60-degree sum-
mer breeze even brisker. Colder.
I GET the sense that his
analytic eyes beneath beetling
brows assess the worth of the
mountain and of the historic ho-
tel, and that he is preparing in his
mind to make an offer for the
whole shebang.
Araby is everywherethat
was my obsessive feeling as I
flew north some three weeks ago.
Here, it strikes me that from the
post-World War II Gold Stan-
dard, we have come to an Oil
Standard with infinitely greate
intimidations. But driving day
after day in New England since
then, through Maine and New
Hampshire and Vermont, the
feeling dissipated. The Arab on
the balcony was but a momen-
tary lapse into obsessive fears
from the new hope and vigor I
have been imbued with here. Or
until newer fears of even more
immediate challenges to the na-
tion's well-being took over after
In fact, I should like to report
that America is alive and well
and living in New England. And,
I suspect, in other such tradition-
al enclaves elsewhere in the mid-
dle and great northwest. In re-
cent years. South Florida has
joined the peripheral geographic
areasthe states along the
Mexican border and the Califor-
nia coast to become a part of
the cutting edge of our national
discontent, where cultural and
linguistic change rapidly engulfs
and overturns the temper of
America so that the atmosphere
becomes heated, volatile and
often desperate in the more
phlegmatic Anglo-Saxon mind.
IT IS precisely the absence of
this intemperate cutting edge
here in New England that 1 find
so soothing, even therapeutic.
Shakespeare, in The Tempest,
speaks of men who "doth suffer a
*>a-change Into something rich
and strange."
At Bretton Woods, and later in
Franconia Notch, it is. of course
a mountain-change. I get the
sense in memory returned of pas-
toral weeks spent at Murren in
Switzerland, high over Lauter-
brunnen that, from our own bal-
cony, the Jungfrau and the F.iger
seemed deceptively eager to be
touched by just reaching out our
Hands to them.
From another balcony of ours
at the Notch, the mountains are
gentler, but no less inviting, no
less divine and awe-inspiring. If
the history of Bretton Woods is
not in them, neither is the failure
of Bretton Woods. Nor is there
the inscrutable eye of Araby ap-
praising its worth. These moun-
tains and all that has occurred
upon them are beyond history.
They are eternal, temperate,
priceless. They are not for sale.
THIS SAME immortal quality
stamps the face of the New Eng-
ender even-where There is a
Kranite quality to the chin of the
lighthouse-keeper at Pemaquid
Point in Maine. I see it as well in
diners at a tiny fish house on the
inlet at Boothbay Harbor, also in
Maine, in the determined talk of
an art shopkeeper in Damariscot-
ta, here in New Hampshire; and
in the face of a farmer standing
near his huge woodpile he is beef-
ing up against the coming winter
just outside of Stowe, in Ver-
Surely, all of this is America aa
once the whole nation waa, a
gathering of independent people
guided by the Protestant virtues
of Old Testament theology with
which a Jew, given the right con-
ditions, can feel some affinity,
some sense of harmony, a unity
whether with the wild northeast
sea or the enduring mountains.
Driving past village after vil-
lage, church after church, town
city hall and library one upon
another in serene assemblage, I
am literally forced to notice the
absence of even a single cross,
either on houses of worship or in
the cemetery.
THIS IS the world of the Puri-
tan who. from the beginning of
the Reformation, fled the power
of the papacy with the kind of
fear one would have thought only
a Jew could feel, a Jew still steep-
ed in the terrifying menace of the
Inquisition, the Romanist
slaughter in the name of some
strange, divine love.
This is the world that set the
stage for the life of a mighty
American nation freed from such
repulsive absolutist religious
doctrines that popped out the
eyes of dissenters as though they
were so many cherries, that
stretched and cracked the bones
of disbelievers on the wrack.
It is not that there was no ab-
solutism here of another kind
from the very beginning, or that
there is no absolutism here of
some sort even today. H.L.
Mencken characterized the New
England Puritan as living in con-
stant nerve-shattering fear that
sometime, somewhere there
exists a Protestant who is exper-
iencing pleasure.
STILL, driving through this
part of America. I am forever
conscious of being away from the
cutting edge of unhappy change.
More, I am increasingly fearful
that the cutting edge follows
us from Florida, from Texas
and New Mexico and Arizona,
from the coast of California. It
follows us to bring back the
creches and the crosses, the
plaster casts of gods and saints
and madonnas, to overwhelm the
nation in an eradication of Ji
present and a resurrection of I

Tampa Jewash Federation, and
Gary Alter, executive director of
the federation, came home from
the three-day whirlwind trip con-
vinced that Israel is right in its
6ght and taking a bum rap from
world critics and the news media.
They visited the burn center at
Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Tel
Aviv, talking with Israeli soldiers
who had lost arms and legs and
noting that there also were a-
mong the injured Arab Lebanese
and even Palestinian prisoners.
They seemed to sense strong
support, even among the injured,
for the Israeli excursion into
The visitors boarded three
U.S.-built Hercules C-5s, just like
the ones used in the famous
Rescue at Entebbe in 1976, pro-
peller-driven troop and cargo car-
riers which have the rear-end
loading ramps. A 30-minube
flight took them to a captured
PLO airstrip east of Sidon. They
looked for the destruction they
had seen on TV and about all
they saw, at first, were shell holes
left from the 1976-76 civil war
when 100,000 Moslems and
Christians died. They saw white
(lags of peace on homes or the
Lebanese flag of red and green
with the Cedars of Lebanon tree.
T-shirts were on sale on the side
of the road. The only "new" des-
truction was a three-block area in
the center of the city. It once was
a PLO enclave.
They saw the PLOs who are
I prisoners of war, some 5,000 of
I them in tents. There were few of-
ficers. Apparently the officers
had headed north. Many of the
POWs are 13 and 14 years old. In
Sidon apparently the Israeli
warning for civilians to go to the
beach was obeyed, saving count-
less lives. In Beirut the problem
seems to be that the civilians to a
great extent are being held hos-
tage by the PLO.
Mr. Alter and Mr. Levine ate
their box lunches with a bivou-
acked brigade of Golani soldiers
who had helped capture Beirut

the soldiers talked with their
American Jewish visitors. The
next day these teenagers were a-
mong those who were sent into
battle in west Beirut for the
fiercest day of fighting in the
Mideast war. Nineteen Israeli
soldiers died and 65 were wound-
ed. "I do wonder if Yoran, he was
18, one of the kids I talked with,
if he made it," said Mr. Altar.
"He was glad to be here. The
PLO rokets had fallen on his vil-
lage of Kiryat Shomna."
Further up the Mediterranean
coast, the visitors entered
Damour, an empty town which
was demolished in the 1975-76
civil war when PLO terrorists
massacred hundreds of Maronite
South of the airport, the Amer-
icans drove in buses up a, moun-
tain road, which overlooked the
airport. From their vantage point
they could hear the Israeli ar-
tillery rounds whining overhead
to the north end of the runway,
maybe two miles away. They
also saw the puffs of smoke from
PLO rokets.
The visitors saw huge caches of
ammunition and weapons, cap-
tured documents of future invas-
ion plans of the PLO, evidence
that the PLO was indeed engaged
in learning terrorism from the
Soviet Union and exporting it
around the world.
Prime Minister Begin spoke to
the group, contending that the
Israelis had gone out of their way
to be humane in their approach to
the civilian population, warning
ahead of time, concentrating fire-
power only in parts of buildings
where the PLO was hiding.
The American visitors heard
Mr. Begin as the rest of us did
on TV say that no one will
bring Israel to her knees, "that
Jews only kneel to God." His ref-
erence was to the preachments of
Sen. Charles Percy (R-Ill), but
the statement also came after
President Reagan applied more
pressure for Israel to pull back.
So what has been obvious from
the start, and what the visiting
Tampans found, is that wars kill
people, including innocent peo-
ple. They came away realizing
that while war solves no political
problems war does provide op-
portunities for solving problems.
They also concluded that there is
a bias in America, especially
among some news media, against
the Christians of Lebanon be-
cause they are viewed as rich and
rightwing. They believe the bias
also extends to favor the be-
draggled PLO because they are

Position Paper on Israel
The State of Israel is the only
Democracy in the Middle East.
Historically, she has been our
most reliable and valued friend in
the region. She represents
strength and stability in an area
of constant turmoil and is a
strategic ally in our effort to safe-
guard freedom and dignity for all
Clearly, the turbulence in the
Middle East cannot by attributed
to the existence of Israel. One
need only look at relations be-
tween Iran-Iraq, Libya-Egypt,
Syria-Egypt, and Syria-Lebanon
to understand that the Middle
East is a complicated network of
tense relationships between Arab
Israel's existence is vital to our
national interest. It is important
that our support be considerable
both in the realm of economic and
military assistance. Israel should
serve as a base of operations for
United States' military personnel
in the region and, in conjunction
with Egypt, allow us a strong
presence in the Middle East.
We must work to achieve peace
in the Middle East through the
Camp David process, the only
method yet to bear fruit. Israel
must not be forced to negotiate
with enemies who refuse to rec-
ognize Israel's right to exist. It is
incredible to suggest that nations
and groups sworn to the destruc-
tion of Israel be considered in any
serious way in this process.
In addition to recognizing our
own national interests in the
strength of Israel, we must also
realize we bear a moral commit-
ment to support a nation of the
Jewish people built on the rem-
nants of the Holocaust. The
struggle of Israel at this point in
history parallels our own struggle
as a young nation, seeking only
the right of free men and women
to live their lives gaining what
fulfillment and satisfaction they

poor and left-wing.
Obviously Isreetlias proved to
have a competent military
machine, one which can most
efficiently operate the finest wea-
pons of war which can be pro-
duced by the United States of
Israel also has provided
another reminder to the world
that she is a poor public relations
practitioner. She's still prickly on
the outside and sometimes not
too soft, like cactus, on the in-
side. She still has a population of
what seems like two million de-
fense ministers and two million
prime ministers.
Maybe her invasion into Le-
banon has been something of an
overkill. But maybe Israel has
done the free world a great favor
by neutralizing the terrorist
PLO. Even remembering that our
Tampa visitors heard the "party
line" when they visited Jerusa-
lem and the outskirts of Beirut,
maybe they caught a piece of the
truth which reminds us that not
everything we see and hear on the
nightly news is exactly the way it

ground PLO arms bunker built into the side of a

amount of ammunition the PLO had stored there

senal they had built up."

1. For seven years, Israel tried
through diplomatic means to end
PLO attacks from Lebanon. But
no sovereign state can tolerate
indefinitely shellings and raids
from neighboring territory. In-
ternational law specifically pro-
vides, in such a case, that the
victim has the right of reprisal
and intervention to end the
2. Israel's actions will bring
peace not only for the Israeli
communities which were being
subjected to repeated attack by
the PLO, but also for the people
of Lebanon who will at last be
freed from the tyranny of armed
guerrillas in their midst. Lebanon
had been, before the PLO and
Syrian invasions, an island of de-
mocracy in a sea of Arab
tyrannies, and a state at peace
with Israel. The PLO plunged the
country into civil war and turned
it into the world headquarters of
terrorism. Israel has stopped the
decline of Lebanon into anarchy,
and created an opportunity to re-
store order and rebuild a demo-
cratic society.

Soviet Union's closest allies in

the Middle East and sworn
enemies of the United States.
Israel has dealt a major setback
to these instruments of the
Soviet Union, reducing the in-
fluence of Moscow in the region
and creating new opportunities
for American diplomacy.
4. At the same time, Israel has
weakened significantly the
radical and rejectionist camp
within the Arab world. It may
now be possible for King Hussein
to challenge the PLO's claim to
be sole representative of the
Palestinians and become in-
volved in the Camp David negot-
iations. Egypt will regain a
central position in the Arab
world. Negotiations for peace will
be given a boost if the Arab mo-
derates seize this opportunity to
break the straglehold over diplo-
matic compromise that has been
held by PLO assassins.
5. The PLO is the hub of the
international terrorist network.
It is permanently committed to
the destruction of Israel and pre-
tends to "compromise" only to
achieve short-term tactical gains.
It has a long history of violating
written agreements, such as the
Cairo (1969), Malkert (1973), and
Shtaura (1977) agreements in
which it promised the other
Arabs it would not conduct
armed operations from Lebanon.
It does not negotiate in good
faith. It must leave Beirut and
Lebanon altogether for there to
be peace in that country.
6. While civilian casualties in
any war are tragic, American
understanding of Lebanon has
been confused by the uncritical
acceptance of wildly inflated
casualty figures emanating from
the PLO "Red Crescent," which
is headed by Arafat's brother.
Even the highest estimates of ci-
vilian casualties since June 6 put
them at less that 10 per cent the
loss of civilian life which resulted

Jewish Social Service Rose Segall
Award winner, busy sorting and
packaging this donated food in
the auditorium of the Jewish
Community Center.
These packages are filled with
fresh produce and staple items
which are available that week.
Since the Food Bank usually pro-
vides the fresh or frozen
groceries, the Jewish community
is asked to provide the staple
items, such as canned goods, rice,
beans, cereal, flour, sugar, etc.
There is a staple food list avail-
able for all the congregations and
organizations to interest their
members in bringing an item a
week to a central point.
The campers at the Jewish
Community Center Day Camp
were encouraged to participate in
this tzedaka. Tzedaka is the Jew-
ish way of giving.
The Food Pantry is in need of
more volunteers who are commit-
ed to caring and sharing and
would like to participate in this
program. Those interested should
contact Robin King at the Tampa
Jewish Social Service, 251-0083.

Generals See 'Little' Civilian Damage
ByJTA Services
TEL AVIV Five retired
American army generals who
have just completed a tour of Is-
rael and Lebanon at the invita-
tion of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith say they
were amazed by what they des-
cribed as "relatively little civilian
damage" caused by the fighting
in Lebanon.
Harry Kinnard, a former com-
manding general of the U.S.
Army Combat Development
Command, said that, compared
to anything in his military exper-
ience, the damage to civilians was
minimal. His statement was sup-
ported by other members of the
group which included George
Patton, son of the World War II
hero; Richard Carr; Sidney
Barry; and Lewis Perls te in, a
member of the U.S. Annv Na-
tional Advisory Board.
Anti-Israel Rally
Reported in Rio
timated 300 PLO supporters par-
ticipated in an anti-Israel rally in
the center of the city last Friday.
The participants shouted anti-
Zionist slogans and denounced
Israeli Premier Menachem Begin
and Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon. When a group of Bnai
Akiva youngsters sought to dis-
tribute leaflets depicting PLO
atrocities, they were attacked by'
the crowd. Leaders of the rally
called off a scheduled march on
the U.S. Consulate after police
persuaded them not to stage the
protest march.
The rally, which was sponsered
by some leftwing groups, includ-
ing the illegal Communist Party
and some members of the Peace
Now movement, was denounced
by Katan Rezwan, president of
the Lebanese League in Brazil. In
a statement published in Jomal
do Brasil, he termed the leaders
of the rally as "false spokesmen"
because they are "supporting the
PLO and terrorism." The rally
had been advertised as "a mani-
festation for peace in Lebanon."
Hold Sharon Fire,
Begin Advises
Menachem Begin has called on
Cabinet ministers to "hold the
fire" against Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon in order to preserve
the unity of the government at
this delicate state of the negotia-
tions to get the PLO forces out of
Begin sought to cool down
tempers over the weekend follow-
ing the confrontation between the
ministers and Sharon at a Cabi-
net meeting last Thursday, a
meeting that was described as
the most tense and bitter session
ever held.
Sharon, who found himself al-
most completely isolated at that
session, was under fire for the
heavy bombardment of west
Beirut earlier in the day, a bom-
bardment which almost all the
ministers criticized as not in ac-
cordance with government decis-
Egypt Honors Peace
Pact, Shamir Says
honored its peace treaty with Is-
rael despite recent strains over
the war in Lebanon, Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir told Is-
rael Radio. Nevertheless, after a
meeting several days ago with
Egypt's Ambassador to Israel,
Saad Mortada, Shamir conceded
that there were "certain prob-
lems" in the relations between
the two countries.
The Foreign Minister indicated
that Israel was displeased with
anti-Israel comments in the
Egyptian news media and by
Egyptian leaders, but empha-
sized that Egypt remained loyal
to the peace treaty. "We don't
see any signs of a deterioration of
the peace relations" between the
two countries, Shamir said.
Another Anti-Israel
Incident in Italy
ROME Police officials in the
village of Terni have arrested a
local grocery store owner for
"slandering a foreign state,"
after he placed a sign outside his
shop saying "Zionists are not
welcome herewe are for the
The incident which incited the
store owner to place the sign, oc-
cured after Israeli tourists from
the nearby village of Piediluco,
where six Israeli atheletes are
participating in the International
Canoeing Championship, ventur-
ed into the shop to purchase
several bottles of mineral water.
In the store they confronted
the owner who was reading a
newspaper with an anti-Israel
slant on the situation in Beirut.

The organization has had the
all important task of providing
the Israel Defense Forces with its
total blood needs (By law, the
MDA is responsible for 100 per-
cent of the IDF's blood require-
ments both in wartime and
peace!). To this end, MDA has
conducted a special blood drive at
all of its stations to fulfill the mil-
itary's needs. Its staff has then
rushed this vital cargo of blood to
Lebanon as well as hospitals in'
Israel receh ing the war wounded.
Of course, MDA has continued
to offer all Israeli citizens emer-
gency medical attention through-
out the country most especial-
ly in the Galilee region. The
Kiryat Shmona and Metulla
stations have been on full alert
since Jun 4 with ambulances
and incre od personal. These
two stati" treated 10 shelling
casualties 'uring the first few
days nf the operation from Katy-
usha rocku attacks on Galilee
settlements. MDA is also respon-
sible for the underground shelters
in Israel which have, unfortu-
nately, been needed all to often in
recent years in the region.
Magen David Adorn has been
actively involved in helping the
Lebanese civilian population.
Recently 20 MDA ambulances,
one bloodmobile and 10 ten ton
trucks filled with medical sup-
plies, blankets, and clothing went
into Lebanon to help the
civilians. This MDA convoy was
staffed by MDA doctors, para-
medics, and volunteers targeted
to give medical aid to the cities of
Tyre and Sidon.
The organization has worked
untiringly in asking the Israeli
population for blankets and
clothing for those in need in Leb-
anon. All 46 major MDA emer-
gency stations have been over-
flowing with these needed items.
MDA has also campaigned in
Israel for cash contributions to
purchase other needed supplies
for Lebanon.
Currently, MDA stands ready
to help where needed. Some 20
ambulances have been damaged
since the fighting has begun, yet
this has not detered the mission
towards a greater peace for the
region and MDA's willingness to
assist where necessary.

Organization over the
kend and last week.
States wanted all foreign
to withdraw from

[following the resolution of the
arut situation, we will be look-
; to the overall Lebanon situa-
with the objective of helping
establish a Lebanese central

the territory of Lebanon," a
al he indicated required "with-
awal of all foreign forces."
He said "our view is clear that
Li would want all foreign forces,
hcluding the Israelis, to leave
lebanon." He added that he
buld not comment on the quee-
ion of the withdrawal of the
|yrian forces from west Beirut,
l which Israel has insisted.
Romberg was asked why

Bnt Reagan and Shultz "have

j, on what might be done," in the
Bnlext of "the broader Middle
ist question," to address "not
nly the entire Lebanese question
also the Middle East peace
those discussions, Reagan asked
Shultz to "seek the views of
members of Congress. He is now
actively engaged in doing that."
Shultz attended a Senate Repub-
lican leadership luncheon today
to seek the views of the Republic-
an Senators "on the Middle East
situation, particularly the Pale-
stinian question."
Asked about restoration of
basic services to west Beirut,
Romberg said that "water has
been flowing to the city fb*r the
last several days and we under-
stand that the Israel Defense
Force has permitted Internation-
al Red Cross medical convoys to
enter the city." He said the
United States "continues to
notice there are problems in as-
suring regular deliveries" to west
Beirut "of fuel supplies." He
added "we are working on this
problem, particularly with
respect to assuring delivery of
fuel to hospitals."
Romberg was asked about a
report that Israel's Defense Min-
ister Ariel Sharon had indicated
he wanted to visit Washington,
presumably to confer with U.S.
officials about the situation in
Lebanon, but had been refused an
invitation. Romberg said that the
question of such a visit by
Sharon had been raised.
HE SAID that while the
Reagan Administration felt that
"Minister Sharon is welcome at
any time," the point "was made
clear, however, that Ambassador
Habib is our negotiator and has
the confidence of both the Presi-
dent and Secretary (of State) and
communication with Washing-
ton." Romberg said "that is
where the focus on that particular
discussion rests."
Romberg said he had no details
on why Sharon wanted to come
but that reports about a "frosty
reaction to the possibility of a
Sharon visit here were "not ac-

The army spokesman pointed

The Syrians gave the Red
Cross the names of three of them

Israel hopes to recover the one
Israeli pilot held by the PLO in
west Beirut, whose release Jeru-
salem is demanding as part of the
deal whereby PLO terrorists will
be allowed to leave Beirut.
(JTA) Shimon Peres,
chairman of Israel's oppo-
sition Labor Party, said
last week that while he was
concerned about the recent
difficulties between Israel
and the United States, he
believes if the Lebanese
situation is resolved peace-
fully, the "rift will pass
Peres said that during a 30-
minute meeting with President
Reagan at the White House the
President told him that negotia-
tors were "very near solving" the
problem of getting some 6,000
PLO terrorists to evacuate
Peres said that the meetings
with Reagan and earlier with
Secretary of State George Shultz
at the State Department were
"very friendly." He said Reagan
had not expressed any "dis-
pleasure" with Israel. Peres, who
also met with Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger at the Penta-
gon, said the only message he
would bring back to Israel from
Washington was of "friendship
and cooperation."
PERES SAID he expressed to
Reagan his "regret" for the loss
of life in Lebanon. But he noted
that Israol wants a peaceful solu-
tion and has allowed the negotia-
tions to go on for eight weeks,
even though militarily it could
have taken over all of Beirut in 24
hours, in order to allow for a
peaceful solution.
Peres said that Shultz had
pointed out that some of the
Arab countries are concerned
about Israel's intentions in Leba-
non the sooner the better," Peres
He said he agreed with Reagan
when the President told him that
the Lebanese situation has
opened an opportunity for the
"continuation of the peace
mementum in the Middle East."
The Israeli official said he
stressed that "we feel the time
has come to solve the Palestinian

that the weakening of the PLO
may encourage the residents of
the West Bank and Gaza Strip,
and perhaps Jordan as well, to
participate in the negotiations for
a settlement of the Palestinian
there is a need to "return to the
Camp David agreement, not to
lose the Egyptian participation. I
think it is tremendously import-
ant that Egypt continues to play
Shimon Peres
a key role in continuing the peace
process." He said that because of
improved relations between
Jordan and Egypt, Egypt
may be able to bring Jordan into
the negotiations.
As for the negotiations for the
PLO evacuation from Beirut,
Peres said that the agreement
has been worked out except for
the detials. He said that Syria
Jordan and Iraq have agreed to
take some of the terrorists, but
Egypt's agreement is conditional
on solving the Palestinian prob-
lem. This will take a long time,
Peres noted.
Shortly after Peres" meeting
with Reagan, the White House
issued a statement welcoming the
Israeli Cabinets approval in
principle of a U.S. plan to end the
crisis in Lebanon.
by Deputy Press Secretary Larry
Speakes. said, "We welcome the
Israeli assessment as an essential
element in getting the problem
solved in Beirut. We are en-
couraged by the momentum and
the peace process continues to
build. ."
The statement added: "We re-
main cautiously optimistic that
outstanding issues can be worked
out ... It is our belief that nego-
tiations and best move forward
when the ceasefire is carefully ob-
served by all parties.
(In New York, JTA corres-
pondent Yitzhak Rabi reported
that Peres told a luncheon meet-
ing of the United Jewish Appeal
at the St. Regis Hotel, "I believe
that as Jews we are not in-
terested in governing 1.2 million
Palestinians (on the West Bank
and Gaza Strip) against their
will." He warned that if the
"domination" of Israel over the
Palestinians continues, Jews

Twenty two youth leaders from
Florida Region B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization recently at-
tended the 1982 Southern Area
BBYO Machon held in late June
at Camp Blue Star in North
Carolina. The program for the
Southeast portion of the Untied
States was coordinated by Susan
Samberg from Hollywood and
Brian Bomstein from Coral
Springs. Both are recent past
presidents of Florida Region
B'nai B'rith Girls and Aleph
Zadik Aleph, respectively. The
director for the Machon program
was Steve Klein, the Florida Re-
gion BBYO Director.
At first the day at the World's
Fair in Knoxville was just going
to be an added bonus to the
Machon Program. However, two
weeks before the start of Machon.
the Machon Director, Steve
Klein, was told that, at the Fairs
Saudi Arabia exhibit. Middle
Last maps completely ommitting
Israel were being distributed
daily to thousands of visitors.
This information triggered a
series of telephone conferences
with the leaders in the Knoxville
Jewish Community; the Anti-
Defamation League Regional Of-
fice in Atlanta; the International
BBYO Shaliach. Joe Perlov; Cot-
ton States Regional BBYO
Director, Rachel Shankman; and
most important, the two BBYO
youth leaders. Stephen Rosen
and Beverly Silverstein who were
coordinating the Southern
Machon's visit to the Fair.
The major issue was not only
how to counteract the Saudi
Arabian "map,'' but should the
BBYO Southern Machon delega-
tion take an "action stand'' dur-
ing its World's Fair visit?
The Machon staff and youth
leadership quickly decided that
BBYO should take advantage of
the presence at the Fair of 85
BBYO members and their staff
from Florida, Georgia, South
Carolina. North Carolina. Ten-
nessee, Louisiana, and Texas.
Suggestions for action included a
demonstration at the Saudi
Arabian exhibit, a TV-News-
paper press conference, mass dis-
tribution of literature and correct
maps; and finally, the plan that
everyone liked: A BBYO Salutes
Israel booth!
Everyone worked quickly tc
breathe life into the idea of mak
ing a positive statement about
Israel to the World's Fair
visitors. Steve Klein rented booth
space for Thursday, June 17,
then arrangements were made to
have Israeli materials shipped
from National BBYO in Wash-

New Process for Personal Growth
I Am: Inner Awareness
Mastery, The Crystillization of
Self, is a new unique process de-
veloped by Dr. Barry J. Naster.
Dr. Naster puts it simply, "I Am
helps me to find out who I am.
Assisted by Ms. Jan Harvey, a
rehabilitation-dance therapist,
they utilize the techniques of
body movement, dance, medita-
tion and exercises in self-explora-
tion to allow the individual to
understand the causes behind
feelings, problems, and stress,
and to use them as vehicles for
I Am is not a process to be
learned but an adventure to be
experienced. Participants exper-
ience how to direct their own
lives. I Am is for those who have
the courage to look within and
the strength to travel into self.
Both Dr. Naster and Ms.
Harvey have been involved ex-
tensively in conducting work-
shops, seminars and training
programs throughout the coun-
try and in the local community.
Dr. N aster's training as Clinical
Psychologist and Ms. Harvey's
training as Rehabilitation Pro-
gram Director at the Florida
Mental Health Institute at the
University of South Florida, has
led them to create, publish and
implement many successful self-
awareness programs.
They bring into their work-
shops many skills acquired
through their professional activi-
ties and their own high level of
self-awareness and charisma.
I Am offers weekend retreats
amid beautiful rustic scenic sur-
roundings. The next retreat will
be held at the Moon Lake As-
sembly Lodge in New Port

staff gathered tables and chairs
from the Knoxville Jewish Com-

The BBYO Israel Booth at the
World's Fair became the focal
point of the day. Hundreds of
visitors to the Fair stopped to
talk, take literature and buttons,
and to say. "so glad there is an

All day long, teams of staff and
Machon youth volunteered to

the Knoxville Jewish community
pioudly rallied round the Booth,

JCC Pre-School Evaluated
by USF Professors
As part of its continual striv-
ing for excellence, the Jewish
Community Center Pre-School
was evaluated this spring by a
team of Early Childhood profes-
sors from the University of South
Florida. Team members were Dr.
Patricia Hartley, Dr. Ronald
hinder and Dr. Jeffrey Gelfer.
The following statement about
the JCC Pre-School was issued
by the team after visiting the pre-
school and reviewing its program
at both the main and north
branch locations:
. "The child-oriented preschool
at the Jewish Community Center
reflects the administration and
staffs perceptiveness of the de-
velopmental needs of young chil-
dren. A well-rounded curriculum
of activities and projects are
planned to enhance the child's
social, emotional, physical, and
intellectual growth. They provide
a variety of opportunities for
children to learn: .
1. To make choices and deci-
sions and to solve problems;
.2. To develop pre-reading and
reading skills through story time,
fingerplays. songs, and many
language experiences, such as,
writing charts and stories;
.3. To develop language con-
cepts through interaction with
competent and caring adults;
. 4. To develop science and math
competencies through stimulat-
ing discovery and exploratory
. 5. And to be socially competent
through interactions with other
children the same age.
. The program is academically
sound and intellectually
stimulating for young children
and is comparable to the hist
preschool programs in the area.,
. The recommendations offered
by the USF consulting team were
designed to enable a good pro-
gram to become even better and
' to support the teachers in their
efforts to remain abreast of the
most current professional de-
velopments. In this manner, the
Preschool can continue to be one
of Tampa's best programs for
young children."
For more information about
the preschool, please contact
Barbara Richman at 872-4451. .'
JCC Senior Power
"We just aren't aware of the
personal, social and political
power that we already have,"
says Ellen Wolf, the Senior
Power program coordinator.
"And even if we do suspect the
amount of power that we own, we
often don't know how to use it ef-
fectively." .
Mrs. Wolf has designed a
series of programs that will both
help us, as senior adults, to define
our own political power as well as
will teach us how to influence the
current events that effect our

Men and women who like
people, wish to be of community
service and would like to be part

Reform Would Sit 'Shiva' Over Denial
"We'd sit ahivo," says Gerard Daniel, presi-
dent of the Reform World Union for Progressive'
Judaism, when asked what he and other Reform
Jews would do were the Law of Return amended
to deny Israeli recognition of non-Orthodox con-
Daniel is a 66-year-old industrialist who spent
10 years in Israel, before the founding of the
state, after leaving his native Germany. He now
lives in New Rochelle, N.Y. Such an amendment
to the Law of Return, he asserts, would be "disas-
trous for the Jewish people."
Daniel maintains that the effect of a narrower
interpretation of the Law of Return would be
"devastating" not only in places like Argentina,
Brazil and Europe, where there is high intermar-
riage, but also in better-organized Jewish com-
munities in the U.S.
An action directly beneficial to Soviet Jewry
and Jews in Arab lands emerged from the meet-
ing of UNESCO in Mexico City with submission
of a resolution giving firm support to "freedom of
religion" and respect for "cultural identity." The
resolution, submitted by the United States, had
its basis in a draft formulated by the delegate of
the World Jewish Congress, Dr. Leon Kronitz,
and supported by numerous other delegations, in-
cluding several Muslim states.
According to the text, the resolution declares
that restrictions on the free exercise of religious
activity are "against the interest of the indivi-
dual, the member states, and the international
community." Adoption of the resolution came at
the end of the World Conference on Cultural
Policies which had been in session for two weeks.
The National Council of Jewish Women has
moved to urge the Federal government to main-
tain enforcement of nursing home regulations.
NCJW signed on to a statement issued by the
National Citizens' Coalition for Nursing Home
Reform to Secretary of Health and Human Ser-
vices Richard Schweiker which urged the govern-
ment "to maintain its leadership and fulfill its
responsibilities in working to assure a high qual-
ity of care and life for the nation's 1.3 million
nursing home residents."
The American Jewish Congress has announced
its opposition to the balanced budget amendment
backed by the Administration.
In a letter to President Reagan, Jeffrey Cohen
and Michael A. Pelavin, co-chairmen of the Jew-
ish organization's commission on urban affairs,
said that "available avenues" already exist to
balance the budget. A balanced budget amend-
ment would lead to "inflexibility" in economic
policy-making at the federal level, they added.
They pointed out that the federal budget "is
essentially a forecast of expectations based on
programs, objectives and judgements concerning
the behavior of the economy for the coming fiscal
year." Since a budget does not become effective
until nine months after being recommended by
the President, a balanced budget amendment
would make it extremely difficult for the nation to
respond quickly to changing economic circum-
stances, they asserted.
Ludwig Jesselson, a leading industrialist and
philanthropist, has been elected associate chair-
man of Bar-Ilan University's Global Board of
Election of Jesselson, chairman of Phillip
Brothers and executive vice president of Philbro
Corporation, took place at the Global Board's an-
nual meeting at the University in Ramat Gan, Is-
rael. Phillip Stollman of Detroit, chairman of the
Global Board, made the announcement.
Mrs. Jane Stern of New York, president of the
American Board of Overseers, was reelected vice
chairman of the Global Board.
Rabbi Joseph P. Sternstein, president of the
American Zionist Federation, singled out the
American television networks for "setting a new
standard of shallowness in news coverage of the
war in Lebanon."
He said that "While newspaper coverage of
events has often shown balance and depth and
debated the complex problems that led up to the
war, network television has failed entirely
through incompetence, or neglected entirely
through intention, to cite and analyse the factors
which brought about the current military situa-
He alleged that network cameramen filmed
rubble in Lebanon that was caused before the cur-
rent Israeli military operation, misleadingly attri-
buting it to the Israelis. He alleged that some ear-
ly war pictures of families fleeing with their be-
longings were actually families heading back
home to the South, rather than fleeing from the
Israeli advance, as was implied.
President Reagan has appointed Michael Rich-
ard Gale as Deputy Special Assistant, serving in
the Office of Public Liaison under Elizabeth Dole.
Mr. Gale will act as liaison to the American
Jewish community and will be responsible for ad-
vocacy briefings, meetings and conferences for
the Office of Public Liaison.
The Office of Public Liaison is President Rea-
gan's major outreach program at the White
House. Its mission is to ensure that the views of
key groups are considered by the President in
developing his agenda.
I Gale has been a legislative liaison for the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee in
Washington, D.C. since the late fall of 1960.
Divorce Equity
New York Law Will
Adjust Wife's Disabilit
Continued from Page 1
presenting Manhattan's Lower
East Side, told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the bill was
the product of months of careful
drafting to avoid any possibility
of conflict with the Constitution-
al church-state separation doc-
Under Jewish religious law
(halacha) a wife refused a get has
the status of an Agunah,and may
not remarry religiously even after
winning a civil divorce.
SILVER explained that the
principle behind the bill is that "a
matrimonial action is an action in
equity. One of the doctrines of
equity is that the court should
leave the parties with equal
status." He added that the mea-
sure permits one party to allege
that "if this (divorce) court dis-
solves this marriage, civilly I will
have a barrier to remarriage."
The barrier will be the husband's
refusal to give his wife a get,
though the measure makes no re-
ference to that religious action.
The measure provides that
when one party to a civil divorce
action complains of a barrier to
re-marriage imposed by the other
party, the issue may be submitt-
ed to a fact-finding and mediation
panel which will have the func-
tion of determining whether such
a barrier exists and, if it does,
whether either party can remove
The measure provides for the
judge hearing the divorce case to
name the panel which can make
recommendations for removal of
the barrier. The panel is thus an
agency of the court. The court
may, at its discretion, withhold a
final judgement on the civil di-
vorce if the party seeking the di-
vorce in such cases, the Jewish
husband fails to comply with
the recommendation of the panel
presumably to give his wife a
THE PANEL has 30 days to
make its recommendation. To
avoid legal problems, the
measure was written to withhold
intentionally any authority for
the judge to hold in contempt the
divorce party rejecting the
panel's recommendations. The
clout the judge can exercise for
the wife of a recalcitrant Jewish
husband is to refuse to give him
and his wife a civil divorce.
Silver was asked what recourse
the wife has if the judge, exercis-
ing his discretion, gives the hus-
band and wife a civil divorce des-
pite his panels recommendations
that the civil divorce be withheld
on grounds the wife will have a
barrier to re-marriage.
Silver replied that, under stan-
dard procedures in the State
Supreme Court, which has juris-
diction in divorces, the wife can
appeal to the next highest state
court, the appellate division.

law professor who is chairman of

and Civic Action of Agudath
