One of the Midrashic sources
(Numbers Kabbah 14:8) relates
that the Almighty Himself pro-
vided the wandering Israelites
with the Sukkah shelters because
their forefather Abraham had
provided shelter for travellers in
his day. Another source tells us
that Jacob built and lived in a
Sukkah after he fled from Laban.
ACCORDING to this latter
association, the Sukkah would
thus be a symbol of the wander-
ing of the Jewish people. This
idea would thus remind the Jews
never to be overconfident with

Many Israeli drivers were re-

squad rescued other police when
the police station in Shafir Amr
village was set afire by rioters. A
police officer was injured when
some 5,000 demonstrators hurled
rocks at police vehicles on the
Wadi Ara road. A constable was
hurt when the local police station
was attacked in the Israeli Arab
village of Taibe.
Serious rioting also broke out
in Nazareth, the largest Arab city
in Israel. Police fired into the air,
but several Arabs were reported
wounded. In Jaffa, police arrest-

comes for them to be forced to
move from their current dwel-
lings and locations.
Another Midrashic source
(P'sikta D'Rab Kahana 28), tells
us that the practice of sitting in
the Sukkah comes after Yom
Kippur because if the judgement
that was actually rendered on
Yom Kippur contained a decree
that the people would again be
homeless, then they dwell in the
Sukkah for the duration of the
Sukkoth holiday week so that
this experience would fulfill the
decree and they would be then
spared further homelessness.
There is still another explana-
tion of the Bible's reason for
Sukkoth. Instead of explaining
that the Almighty had the
Hebrews live in booths this
source says that the Sukkoth
represent the Divine Clouds of
Glory with which the Almighty
protected the Jews in the wilder-
ness and through which the He-
brews knew what direction to
take by following these clouds
which flourished above them and
led the way.
explained that when the Jews
worshipped the Golden Calf in
the wilderness these clouds dis-
appeared. Later, after Moses
constructed the tabernacle of
worship in the wilderness these
clouds reappeared.
The date of their reappearance
happened to come out on the 15th
day of the Hebrew month of
Tisrei which is the first day of the
Sukkoth holiday. According to
this description, the Sukkah is
the symbol of the constant po-
tential of the Almighty's reoccur-
ing protection from overhead

for their sins (that is, after Yom

Rabbis Express Outrage
The following statement was issued Thursday
afternoon, September 23. Some Rabbis were not sig-
natories because they could not be contacted. At
least one Rabbi chose not to sign the statement.
On the eve of our most solemn holy day "Yom
Kippur," nine Rabbis of Pinellas and Hillsborough
Counties wish to express our moral outrage of the re-
cent massacres in Beirut. We condemn all who are re-
sponsible. We call on the present government of Is-
rael to initiate a full impartial investigation into this
event, and if culpability is found, to punish all who
are found responsible.
We express our continued support for the State of
Israel and its people. And express our solidarity with
their wishes to live in peace with their neighbors. We
applaud the democratic and moral efforts to seek the

A Message From
Marlene Linick

Tampa Jewish Federation
Women's Division
With the start of the New
Year, it is a good time to examine
again the importance of our com-
mitment to the Jewish people the
world over. We are part of a heri-
tage that is rich in history, cul-
ture, and the tradition of always
taking care of our own.
In the difficult times ahead of
decreasing government funding
for social welfare projects and
prices affecting the economy of
the world, we will all have added
responsibilities. These demands
will require each of us to try even
harder than ever before.
It is necessary that we educate
our youth, not only in our faith,
and its meaning, but also to
understand and to put into prac-
tice the concept of tzedakah as a
way of life. This is vital, as there
will always be needs in the Jew-
ish community. The aging popu-
lation continues to grow with its
increasing problems and de-
mands. The high level of services
given to all our community pro-
jects must be maintained.
Quality of life for Jews every-
where, and even life itself in some
countries, requires an increased
effort on our part.
With renewed dedication, with
increased strength, and with
openhanded generosity we will
meet the challenges of the year

Tampa Jewish Federation
Women's Division
The Women's Division of the
United Jewish Appeal was es
tablished in 1945 as an extension
of the annual campaign. Ter.
years later as women began tf
express a need to be better in
formed about the programs sup-
ported through contributions,
education became a major facet
of the organization. It was
evident that through educational
opportunities provided by the
Women's Division that women
could become informed and con-
vey the purposes and needs of
fellow Jews to their families.
This year, everywhere you
look, our Women's Division will
create excitement and inspire
commitment. From past achieve-
ments to future plans, the
sharing and deducation will con-
tinue. Won't you join us?
Congratulations to all the
women who worked tirelessly in
1982 with President Franci
Rudolph and Campaign Chair-
man Lois Older. We topped the
successful 1981 campaign for a
gratifying total of $151.000. Indi-

Tampa Jewish Federation 1963
Campaign Chairman Les Barnett
has announced that over $73,000
has been raised so far for the Is-
rael Special Fund inaugurated at
the community Solidarity gath-
ering held on Sept. 8.
The Israel Special Fund was
adopted by the Federation's
Board of Directors to provide
vital social, health and educa-
tional services that cannot be met
unless world Jewry responds by
raising over 300 million dollars.
"The response to date has been
most gratifying," according to
Barnett, who reports that checks
are being received daily by the
Federation office. Many indivi- .
duals have brought checks to the '
office and many have responded
to appeals that have been made
during the high holy day services
of the synagogues.
"We are grateful to the Presi-
dents and Rabbis who have
brought to the attention of their
congregants this special Israel
fund and appreciate their sup-
port," Mike Levine, Federation
President stated.
A second line will be added to
the 1983 campaign to provide an
opportunity for each individual
to participate in this effort on be-
half of human support programs.
viduai gifts increased substan-
tially and the women who partici-
pated have reason to be proud.
Women's Division, '83 is
marked by a unique balance of
experience and vitality in its
leadership. We have a superb
blend of ability and enthusiasm
among all our volunteers, paving
the way for another exciting year
for the year round Women's Di-
vision. Please join President
Marlene Linick, her officers and
board, and myself for a new and
satisfying year-

We were thrilled to hear about the birth of Marian and Dr.
Paul Winter's third child Alan Lawrence Winters. Alan was
born Sept. 7 at 2:40 p.m. at Women's Hospital. He
weighed 7 lb. 9 oz, and was 19 inches long. Alan joins his
two older siblings fiveand-ahalf-year old Lara and two-and-
a-half year old Megan. The happy Grandparents are Tampans,
Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Winters and Mr. Aaron Shapiro of Fort
Lauderdale. His proud Great Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Maslan, New York, all of whom traveled to Tampa for
Alan's bris held on Sept. 15 at the Winter's home. Loads of
congratulations to all of you on this joyous occasion.
We reported the 25th anniversary party of Millie and
Walter Woolf last week, but failed to tell you what a truly family
affair it was. Hosting the party were Millie's mom.Lil Weinberg
Walter's mom, Betty Woolf, and Millie's twin sisters and their
husbands, Jodie and Fred Widerman, Cocoa Beach and Nancy
and Bob Mayes. now of Hawaii (courtesy of the Navy). The
Mayes were hosting in absentia as they were getting settled into
their new home in Pearl City at Pearl Harbor.
Some happy "tidbits" about a few of our friends:
Congratulations to former Tampans Robin and Gary
Eiaenberg, who now reside on the east coast of Florida, on the
birth of their daughter, Mauriaa. Robin was the Religious School
Director at Congregation Schaarai Zedek.
Our best wishes to Sandy and Craig Liepper, on the birth of
their daughter, Rita Beverly.
Congratulations to Dr. and Mrs. Robert Haas on the
engagement of their daughter, Robyn, to Rick Pekala.
Welcome to Nancy Abroms, who was recently been ap-
pointed Director of Youth Activities for Congregation Schaarai
Zedek. Nancy is a native of Athens, Georgia. She attended the
University of Georgia, and now attends USF. She will be in
charge of both Schzfty activities and those programs involving
the youth of the seventh and eighth grades.
Some of our friends spent the summer traveling Tammy
Fox had a marvelous vacation in Israel: Rabbi Leonard and
Judy Roatatkal visited family and friends in California; as did
Patti and Bill Kalish, with daughter, Jill, while daughters,
Jennifer and Julie were at camp.
Happy 40th Birthday to John Osterweil. Hope your day
was terrific!
Three cheers for Brenda Hamberg, who recently graduated
from Nursing school.
Good Luck to Dr. Jerald Zakem, whose specialty is
Rheumatology and Internal Medicine, on the opening of his new
The Downtown Rotary Club heard Rabbi Frank Sundbeim
at their weekly meeting on Sept. 21. He spoke on the tradition
and origin of Jewish Holidays.
Shelley Herzog, president of the Sisterhood Congregation
Kol Ami, informs us that they had a truly "uplifting'' first
meeting of the year. Dr. Lewis Burger, renowned Plastic
Surgeon, spoke of the subject of Cosmetic Surgery." A subject
that crosses the mind of many of us ladies (and you men too,
come-on, admit it), this really must have been an interesting
talk, followed by a question and answer period.
On Oct. 17 there will be a very special event at 7 p.m. at the
University of South Florida. Dr. Jim Strange, of the University,
will present a slide lecture on the Dead Sea Scrolls. He will also
report on Tampa's Museum of Living Bible History, which is in
the planning stages, to feature both Old and New Testament
sites. He will further report on his archeological digs in Israel,
from which he has just recently returned.
A fabulous statewide "Seniors" weekend is being planned
for Nov. 7, 8. and 9, to be held in Orlando. This "get-away'' will
include such events as an evening of jazz music, an entire day's
visit to EPCOT at Disney World; a cultural evening of great
Jewish Theatre "From Shtetl to Stage Door," which is a i
nostalgic, multi-media, musical journey featuring memorable
folk songs, and the Jewish influence on the American Musical
theatre; a visit to the "Stars Hall of Fame," with an opportunity
tor some of the seniors to take part in a screen test,; and many
other wonderful social plans. So if you are interested in at-
tending this weekend, contact the Jewish Community Center
now! It sounds absolutely fantastic.

Note of Encouragement
In the midst of Israel's agony, it is heartening to
note that the Jewish nation stands solidly behind a
campaign to inquire into the events surrounding the
Shatila and Sabra massacres outside of Beirut on
Sept. 16 to 18.
Israelis and Jews throughout the world are
paying heavily for this most disastrous occurrence.
Particularly for Israel, the political consequences are
Still, that is another issue from the ancient Jewish
impulse to come to moral terms with actions that are
deemed unacceptable. In these dark days, instead of
feeling profoundly disturbed, we should be en-
couraged by Israel's determination to discover the
This determination is a sign of courage the
courage to pay even more than the obvious political
consequences should an inquiry conclude that the
fault lies elsewhere than with the Christian
Phalangists gone berserk following the assassination
of Bashir Gemayel.
The Sukkoth Holiday
Jews throughout the world will celebrate Sukkoth
beginning with the first day of the holiday on
Saturday, Oct. 2. Also known as the Feast of the
Tabernacles, Sukkoth commemorates the temporary
booths in which the ancient Israelites lived during
their wanderings in the desert after the exodus from
According to the Bible, the holiday is a
thanksgiving festival. In Lev. 23:39-43, it is com-
manded that the people should live in booths for
seven days in order "that your generations may
know that I made the Children of Israel to dwell in
booths, when I brought them out of the land of
And in the Book of Nehemiah (8:17), it is said:
"Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches,
and branches of wild olive, and myrtle branches, and
palm brances, and branches of thick trees, to make
booths as it is written ..."
Either way, Sukkoth is rooted in the holiest of our
writings as a festival in celebration of historic divine
acts in which Jews participated in ancient times. As
such, with its symbolic use of "the four species (of
plant)" and the "fruit of goodly trees," including the
etrog and the lulav," Sukkoth is a happy holiday
denoting rejoicing and deliverance.
These certainly are feelings we need today, when
modern Israel finds itself beleaguered again in a
world seeking its being brought to heel and even
IT IS not the hypocritical Rea-
gan Administration we have to
I fear now so far as Israel is con-
cerned. We certainly don't have
1 to fear the Arabs either, those ex-
' quisite moderates in whose
1 mouths butter will not melt these
days. We know where all of them
NO. it is Jews we have to fear,
the Jews of Israel and the Jews of
America. So far as the Jews of
America are concerned, they are a
miserable and cowardly lot.
These days, Lebanon makes
them uncomfortable socially, and
in too many cases, it frightens
them economically. They want
the 'friendship" of their Gentile
peers who have so recently come
to accept them into some of the
boardrooms and at some of the
golf courses and men's rooms of
the nation's choice clubs.
THE PRICE being exacted of
them is that they must come to
accept Menachem Begin as "in-
transigent'' or "irresponsible" or
even as a "terrorist." Joined by a
mangey lot of American Jewish
intellectuals like, say, Noam
Chomsky, who long ago let it be
known that they have more im-
portant things to do than even to
be a closet Zionist, let alone
openly Jewish, they are ap-
parently willing to pay the price.
Suddenly, for example, the
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations' Rabbi Alexander
Schindler is whimpering all over
the place about the Lebanese war
and about Israel's role in it. War
is hell and beastly, he concludes,
and so Israel ought to withdraw.
Menachem Begin ought to re-
sign. Ariel Sharon ought to be
drawn and quartered.
Then there is Roland Gittel-
sohn, another reformer of the
American Jewish conscience, who
demands an Israeli psychiatric
self-examination before we return
to the ranks as wholehearted
supporters of that hapless nation.
But why name names? Have you
seen a single rabbinical board
statement in your community
saying: Israel is in trouble now,
and this agonizes us, but we are
at Israel's side unconditionally?
Have you seen, except for the
usual pitches for funds, a single
statement by a Federation or an
Israel Bonds organization of this
sort? On the contrary, so voluble
are they in their usual Brother-
hood grist issued to pander to the
non-Jewish community, that
their silence by contrast in the
current unpleasantness stands as
a terrible accusation.
THERE ARE. in fact,
Schindlers and Gittelsohns, et
a/., in every major Jewish com-
munity in America, wringing
their hands, flinching before the
assaults of various religious lead-
ers, Roman Catholic mainly these
days, who are out to punish us all
with the threat of unleashing a
renewed anti-Semitism in the
wake of the Begin response to

In lieu of destruction we can
celebrate the union of each of our

one rainbow of people. In the

President's Message
What is important today in this fast paced world we live in is to
Hind ways to convey the excitement, the romance, the uniqueness
|of Judaism and the Jewish people from nursery school to the age of
llOO to keep people in this open society committed to remaining
Jews'* These words of Esther Leah Ritz, Jewish Welfare Board
(President, are the very essence of why our Jewish Community Cen-
|ter exists.
In reading our Program Guide, I find myself proud of what we
Ihave to offer as well as disappointment in what we could be offering,
[but what is most important is that we continue to strive to make
[the Tampa Jewish Community Center the best. Please read your
|Guide. It's super!
There are many changes happening as with everything
Ichanges are inevitable. Unfortunately, Edward R. Finkelstein,
Executive Director for the past six years, has left. We wish him the
|very best in everything.
A Search Committee is looking for the very best. Until a new
lExecutive Director has been found, the lay leadership will fill the
I void.
Any problems, concerns, help or praise, please do not hesitate to

Tampa Players Bring Top Plays To JCC
A local amateur theatre group, the Tampa Players, have announced five plays
for their 1982-83 series with the play "Terra Nova" set for October 14-31. All plays

"Terra Nova" is a play about five Englishmen and five Norwegians, who in the
winter of 1911-12, raced each other to the bottom of the earth. Only the five Nor-
wegians returned.
This is the story of the Englishmen.
Tickets are available through season ticket subscription or on individual play
basis. From previous years, the Center's auditorium has been filled to capacity for
the Tampa Players, so get your tickets early.

works with the youngsters at both the

fortunate to have a music specialist at each

music, but in Jewish music, as well.
We are happy once again to have Loretta
Jordan with us as a volunteer. She is back
for her eighth year and has become the

welcome a new volunteer, Mira Koren, who
was a pre-school teacher in Israel. Her
knowledge of Israel and of the Hebrew
along with her love of young children will
be an asset to our program.

tor an individual, aa our in-
ment in Vietnam and its af-
_iath have amply demon-
lied. The Vatican, for exam
\ never concerns itself about
lers the Pope, after all, is
Jble by definition.
Hence, the Vatican never be-
comes traumatized in the strug-'
gle between politics and morality.
For the Vatican, the choice is al-
ways clear, as Pope John Paul's
meeting with Mr. Arafat amply
demonstrates: Ditto the French
and the British and the Germans
and the Russians. And, of course,
our own country, which is far and
away better than the others in
this matter, but which is never-
theless far from pure.
But if we are to talk about Is-
rael's blunders of recent date,
then we must start with Mr.
Begin s unilateral and uncondi-
tional gift of the Sinai to Egypt
in 1979, with the toothy peanut of
prophecy, Jimmy Carter, looking
on. Between this and the Israeli
return to Beirut, lie countless
other political and military
blunders that have finally
brought us to Ronald Reagan's
euphoria in which he dreams that
he can impose a peace settlement
on Israel and feel downright
sanctimonious about it. After all,
the chutzpah of David suddenly
becoming Goliath, just like the
rest of the Goliaths all over the
place, including the White
CAN HE? Yes, the President
pose to turn around the 1967 Six-
Day War and bring Israel back to
1948. And to return Jerusalem to
King Hussein and Pope John
Paul. This will be the ultimate re-
sult of the war in Lebanon if the
Judenrat reconstitutes itself
can impose a peace settlement,
particularly if Jews in Israel and
abroad continue to act with the
kind of cowardice they have
shown in recent weeks. The little
minds among them are at work
again, joining the baying dogs of
the press and the hypocrite poli-
ticians as they suddenly get reli-
gion and point accusing fingers in
moral outrage.
Shall we join this chancrous lot
by self-flagellation and self-de-
precation? The stakes are too
high for such genocidal behavior
in the doubtful name of morality.
The Reagan Administration has
already rewritten the outcome of
the war in Lebanon and Israel's
best intentions in launching it.
The U.S. rewrote the 1973 Yom
Kippur War in the last hours of
that brilliant Israel return from
near-defeat to overwhelming vic-
tory. So brilliant was the rewrite
that Anwar Sadat, in October,
1981, stood before a military par-
ade at the moment of his assas-
sination celebrating Egypt's

Reagan again, whose Sept. 1

tions against them leveled by ac-
cusers who are themselves mur-

mental dimension that they de-
serve our profoundest contempt,

among the citizens."' Feres as-
sured the huge rally that it was
important to protest Israel's
moral outrage and shock in
reaction to the massacre.
Prime Minister Begin had failed
to utter even "a word of sorrow or
of condemnation of the killers.''
Instead, he said. Begin had called
the killing of Arabs by Arabs as
"Why do you describe it aa a
natural disaster instead of a
policy disaster?" he asked.
At the same time, Eli Geva,
the brigade commander dis-
missed from the army for
refusing to lead his troops into
West Beirut in July, declared
Saturday that Israel's "house is
on fire." He said that most of the
officers in the army he knew were
opposed to entering West Beirut,
but did not speak out.
Geva said that "I am referring
to a country which is in a type of
deterioration, or landslide, and
everyone who believes in this
country has to contribute to
stopping the landslide." He said
that "anyone who believes in
trying to stop it should make his

had been given, I wouldn't have
dared to violate it. But until it
was given, I decided to do
everything to stop it being
Minister Ariel Sharon accused
Geva of prolonging the war in
Lebanon. According to Sharon,
Geva gave the Palestinians a
signal to believe they would not
have to leave Beirut in the first
Geva's response has been that
he supported the war in its- origi-
nal objective to stop Palestin-
ian fire on Israels northern Gali-
lee settlements. "About this,
there was no choice," but "I
don't believe Beirut is a primary
danger to the security of the
Galilee, and therefore I don't
believe it is a reason for spilling
our blood."
As multinational forces in Bei-
rut took up their positions,
American troops hung back as
late as Tuesday, with 1,200 off-
shore U.S. Marines refusing to
land until all Israeli Defense
Forces were out of the city.
Larry Speakes said at the White
House Tuesday that "We expect
the Israeli Defense Forces to be
out of Beirut by Mid-week, in-
cluding the airport area. No (Is-
raeli) force of any military signi-
ficance is expected to remain in
the airport area."
Small Israeli units remained at
the airport as late as Monday, as
well as at the seaport, but Israel
vowed on Sunday they would be
out by Wednesday. Still, Israel
was insisting on maintaining a
"presence" at the airport, and

there was speculation as late as

States and Israel would agree to
allow Israeli civilian. not

controller to be in the airport
The Knesset meeting in Jeru-
salem to examine ways of launch-
ing an inquiry into the massacre
at Shatila and Sabra came as Is-
raeli papers continued their in-
vestigation into the events at the
Sabra and Shatila refugee camps
in west Beirut, with a comparison
of statements by Defense Minis-
ter Ariel Sharon especially in
his Knesset speech and Chief
of Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan, on the
one hand, and on the spot inter-
views with Israeli officers and
soldiers, Lebanese army officers
and refugee camp residents, on
the other.
The general feeling is that
many questions arise from the
statements of Sharon and Eitan,
which contradict each other on
many points. Thus, Sharon told
the Knesset that Phalangist
forces had entered the camps
from the west and south, and
nothing had been learned of what
went on until Friday afternoon.
But Eitan said the Phalangists
entered from the east (where
there were no Israeli forces) and
the Israelis only learned what
was happening on Saturday
THESE contradictions were
seen as the reason for opposition
by both Sharon and Eitan to the
establishment of an independent
legal committee of investigation.
Eitan is said to have threatened
to resign if such a committee was
But the descriptions of both
men appear to be at variance with
information obtained by Israeli
journalists in conversations with
Israeli soldiers from units near
the camps.
According to these conversa-
tions published in many papers,
the Phalangists had entered the
camps in full coordination with
Israeli officers, who had, indeed,
stressed that their mission was to
seek out terrorists and not to
harm civilians.

Hughes had no coj .merit on
the Israel government's refusal
to hold an inquiry on the massa-
cre at two Palestinian refugee
camps in west Beirut, saying this
was a question for Israel alone to
decide. While saying that the
U.S. is collecting information on
what happened, he backed away
from using the word "inquiry."
HOWEVER IN Congress,
many of Israel's strongest sup-
porters were upset over the Is-
raeli government's refusal to
create a commission of inquiry.
Reps. Benjamin Rosen thai and
' Stephen Solarz, both Democrats
from New York, were quoted as
saying this was a mistake. Sen.
Henry Jackson (D., Wash.) urged
Israel "to submit the matter to
an international investigation."
Hughes stressed that Secre-
tary of State George Shultz has
ruled out any cuts in economic or
military aid to Israel. However,
on Capitol Hill, observers believe
that while Israel is expected to
get the same $2.2 billion in eco-
nomic and military aid it received
this year, there is little chance of
getting the increase it has re-

that he would never negotiate
with the government of Premier
Menachem Begin. But Hughes
stressed, "We deal with the legi-
timate government of Israel who-
ever that might be."
The King also said he would
not negotiate within the Camp

Gittelsohn Demands Inquiry
To Restore Israel's Credibility
NEW YORK_ The leader
of Reform Jewish Zionists,
in a Yom Kippur letter to
rabbis and leaders of his or-
ganization, called this week
for an "impartial and inde-
pendent inquiry" into
charges of Israeli responsi-
bility for the massacre of
Palestinian civilians in
refugee camps in West Bei-
Rabbi Roland B. Gittelsohn,
president of the Association of
Reform Zionists of America, said
such an investigation was an
"urgenf necessity ... to estab-
lish the truth and to restore the
credibility of the Government of
He said that once Israel had
made the decision to enter West
Beirut, it could "no longer
completely absolve itself of all re-
sponsibility for the massacre
which ensued.
"WE HAVE NO right to
expect the Israelis to be either
angels or martyrs. We have both
a right and a duty to ask that
they do everything humanly pos-
sible to exemplify and im-
plement the moral imperatives
of Judaism."
Rabbi Gittelsohn. who is rabbi
emeritus of Temple Israel in Bos-
ton, and regarded as one of the
leading senior figures in the
American Reform rabbinate, said
in his letter that he had "agon-
ized through restless days and
nights over recent events in the
Middle East.
"I deplore the violence which
has scarred Lebanon," he wrote,
adding that "for the most part,
that violence has been forced
upon Israel by a world which
would by now have exterminated
a pacifist Jewish state.
"The tragic casualties in-
flicted on civilians in Lebanon
became inevitable once the PLO
had concentrated so much of its
military might in residential
areas. The subsequent inexcus-
able massacre of unarmed Pales-
'r.ians in the refugee camps of
West Beirut might never have
occurred had the PLO not vio-
lated its promise by hiding in
those camps many of its fighters
which it had agreed to send out of
Lebanon." He added:
"HAVING SAID this much,
however, as I do with total con-
viction, my conscience still nags
at me, denying me all rest.
"My Jewish heritage compels
me to add that military force can
never be more than a means to
larger and more important ends.
When the means are mistaken for
ends, neither democracy nor de-
cency nor Judaism can survive.
"Unbridled militarism, an in-
satiable appetite for more terri-
tory, an obsessive search for ab-
solute physical security these
always have yielded and always
will yield, catastrophe."
Rabbi Gittelsohn continued:
"Military strength, divorced
from an incessant search for jus-
tice, inevitably becomes cancer-
ous. Our own Jewish history
provides an instructive and
frightening paradigm."
called that the military strength
of the Maccabees had restored
political and religious freedom to
the Jewish commonwealth of the
time, some 2,150 years ago.
"In subsequent centuries,
however," he added, "the Has-
monean descendents of the Mac-
cabees confusing means with
ends, obsessed with their
physical power, blinded to the
moral dictates of their heritage,
caused their state to decay and
"We must not I repeat
must not permit anything like
that to happen again."
Rabbi Gittelsohn wrote that he
did not know "whether it was
necessary for Israel to occupy
West Beirut after the assasina-
tion of Bashir Gemayel."
However, he added, "I do know
that, once the decision to enter
West Beirut was made, Israel
could no longer completely ab-
solve itself of all responsibility
for the massacre which ensued."
His letter continued:
"WE HAVE no right to expect
the Israelis to be either angels or
martyrs. We have both a right
and a duty to ask that they do
everything humanly possible to
exemplify and implement the
moral imperatives of Judaism.
"There is an urgent necessity
for an impartial and independent
inquiry to establish the truth and
to restore the credibility of the
Government of Israel. These
imperatives dictate immediate
withdrawal of Israel from West

But Trade Goes on With
Merchants of Israel

Lebanese commerce with
Israelis has been going on for the
past five years, since the opening
of the "good fence" on the Israel-
Lebanese border, a wide-open
crossover point. Before Israel
sent its forces into Lebanon on
June 6. most of the Lebanese
traders came from the south

Maj. Saad Haddad and his Chris-
tian militia. Since then, officials

INITIALLY, the merchants
from Tyre and Sidon received
special permits to go to the "good
fence'" border points where they
bought products from Israeli
tradesman. Later, they received
permits to enter Israel proper to
make purchases.
The Lebanese tradespeople
buy mostly food, medical sup-
plies, construction materials, as
well as electrical appliances,
American cigarettes, batteries
and similar items. Officials said
the $4 million in purchases a-
mounted to more than the value
of all business transactions be-
tween Israel and Egypt since the
two countries signed their peace
treaty four years ago.
Before the war,: Lebanese
buyers purchased products from
Israel at a volume of $500,000 to
$700,000 a month. Zvi Amit, di-
rector general of the Israel
Chamber of Commerce Associa-
tion, said "this is only the be-
ginning. These are only feelers.
Lebanon is a huge market, which
serves as an intermediary market
to the entire Arab world."
