Presidents' Conference
Leader Denies Split
In Jewish Community
_ Julius Berman, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
has denied that there was
any split within the Ameri-
can Jewish community as a
result of recent Israeli
He also attacked Presi-
dent Reagan's Middle East
plan for Israeli-Arab peace
as a violation of the spirit of
Camp David and accused
the President of going back
on his election campaign
promise to American Jews
that he would always sup-
port a unified Jerusalem
under Israeli rule.
BERMAN addressed a press
conference here following a meet-
ing with Premier Menachem Be-
gin which he described as an "ex-
cellent conversation." He would
not disclose the contents of their
talk, however, and refrained from
making any comments on the in-
ternal political situation in Israel,
particularly the many calls for
the resignation of Defense Minis-
ter Ariel Sharon.
Berman insisted that Ameri-
can Jews were, as always, deeply
committed to the security of Is-
rael and took pride in Israel's
democracy. The commitment to
Israel's security went beyond
personal and political divisions,
he said. "There is no split, no rift,
no division of the love for Israel,"
Berman declared.
He said he had told Begin that
the Jewish people in particular
were deeply distressed by events
in Lebanon, specifically the mas-
sacre of Palestinians in two west

Former Supreme Court
Justice Goldberg to
Speak At USF Act. 19
Arthur Goldberg, who gave up
a lifetime position as Associate
Justice of the Supreme Court to
become a United Nations ambas-
sador, will speak at the Univer-
sity of South Florida at 7:30
p.m., Oct. 19, in the gym. His
topic will be "The Supreme
Court: Once Again Under Fire.
Justice Goldberg was appoint-
ed to the Supreme Court by Pres-
ident John F. Kennedy in 1962.
He had served as Secretary of
Labor in Kennedy's Cabinet.
When UN Ambassador Adlai
Justice Arthur J. Goldberg
Stevenson died in 1965, President
Lyndon Johnson asked Goldberg
to step down from his Supreme
Court position to replace Steven-
son as the U.S. Ambassador to
the United Nations. Johnson said
at the time that he wanted to fill
the ambassadorship with another
liberal of great prestige. Gold-
berg resigned from the UN post
in 1968 to direct Hubert Humph-
rey's presidential campaign.
Goldberg had previously
served as general counsel for two
labor unions the Congress of
Industrial Organizations (CIO)
and the American Federation of
Labor (AFL). He was instru-
mental in bringing about the
merger of these two organiza-
tions into one powerful union.
He has served in distinguished
professorships at Princeton,
Columbia, and American Univer-
sities and presently practices law
in Washington, D.C. He is the
author of several books, includ-
ing "AFL-CIO: Labor United,"
"Equal Justice: The Warren Era
of the Supreme Court," and "The
Defenses of Freedom: The Public
Papers of Arthur J. Goldberg."
Goldberg's speech, sponsored
by the University Ucture Series,
in cooperation with the USF
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation,
will be free and open to the pub-

What do Peer Facilitators.
Safety Patrols and Student Gov-
ernment leaders at Tampa's Mil-
lei School have in common? The
desire to serve classmates, care
for others, and strengthen their
leadership abilities.
Remember, Peers were spec-
ially selected students in grades
five through eight, identified last
spring as being concerned and
caring individuals, capable of
facilitating growth and under-
standing among schoolmates.
The group has been busy this
new school year assisting new
students with orientation, and
functioning as "Secret Buddies."
Credit to Egypt
An agreement to provide $68 mil-
lion in short-term credit to Egypt
to increase its private sector pro-
duction has been signed by the
United States and Egypt.
It was a mysterious experience
receiving anonymous notes of
concern and caring, until Sept. 30
when new students enjoyed a
lunch with newly-introduced
buddies. The transition to a new
school was surely more fun and
new friendships a surprise bonus!
Caring for others is a daily
concern for school safety patrols,
too. Student Officers Shawn
Weinfeld, Adam Silverman, Todd
Buchman and Robert Solomon
and their active patrol members
have been directing student hall
traffic, keeping walkways safe
and assisting schoolmates in
crossing busy Barcelona Street.
Learning about traditions
meant moving across beautiful
Bayshore Boulevard to the
water's edge. The scene was eye-
filling as newly elected student
government officers and the
entire school led a recent Tashlich
ceremony. (See photo) President
Matt Milk, as well as officers
Shawn Weinfeld. Orly Mallin and
Joshua Kreitzer have been busy
guiding and planning school
events, learning to interpret poli-
cies and goals, and supporting
fund-raisers. An Oct. i

was fun and full of surprises

The Brandeis National Women's Committee is currently
starting a chapter in our city and YOU can join! This is an
organization that runs study groups based on various syllabuses
prepared by the Brandeis University faculty. Each study group
selects one of these study programs offered (i.e. Jewish Short
Story) and devotes its study to that subject all year. Each study j
group will probably meet on a monthly basis and can decide for
themselves whether they want to choose one leader out of the
group to always take charge of the discussion or to take turns
among its members. Men may also participate in a study group,
however the parent organization may only be joined by women.
Through membership fees, the parent organization is dedicated |
to support the Brandeis University Library. This is also done:
through an occasional project such as a book sale. What a mind-

JDC programs in Lebanon, re-
ported that the JDC had the
"cooperation of Lebanese and
Israeli authorities," and that
"the major concern now is the
provision of suitable winter
shelter and clothing for the
homeless.'' He described the
problem as being "of such pro-
portions as to require an interna-
tional response by governmental
and voluntary agencies."
Goldman noted that in recent
weeks JDC had delivered 20 tons
of winter clothing collected in
Jerusalem, had "helped inoculate

Ben Bella Says Arabs
WUl Never Accept Israel
Ahmed Ben Bella, the for-
mer president ot Algeria
who was imprisoned for
many years under the
regime of Houari
Boumedienne, said in a re-
cent interview with the
French periodical "Politi-
que Internationale" that
the Arabs will never accept
the Zionist fact.
"I am an Arab, and Palestine
does not only concern Palestin-
ians; it concerns all Arabs. Even
if the Palestinians are forced to
accept some kind of solution, the
Arabs in general will never accept
the State of Israel," he said.
ASKED IF some territorial
compromise was possible, Ben
Bella replied that acceptance of
the Zionist being would imply a
legitimacy to a non-Arab entity
in the Mideast.
"The Zionist State by its inter-
nal logic," said Ben Bella, "pre-
supposes economic, political and
cultural control over the entire
region. For us this is synony-
mous with sterilization and a loss
of identity that no self-respecting
Arab could accept."
Ben Bella, released from an
Algerian form of house arrest
only a year-and-a-half ago, said
that while individual Arab
leaders might go to Jerusalem to
conclude some form of peace with
Israel there would always be a
Moslem who would arise "to
liquidate traitors."

ceived letters and parcels from

have written home.
But Israel army spokesmen

scribe Israel, Ben Bells predicted
that the Israel problem would be
solved in about 20 years.
Quoting Israeli statistics re-
garding immigration and emigra-
tion, Ben Bella noted that in
1981, 22,000 Jews had left Israel
while only 11,000 had entered the
country. The Arab population
was already 750,000 and growing
faster than the Jewish one.
The former Algerian President
pointed also to the technological
gap which once separated Jews
and Arabs. "The Arabs are be-
ginning to have their own tech-
nicians, scholars, their own
brians," said Ben Bella.
"SOONER OR later they will
have the atomic bomb; this is in-
evitable. At that point we will
weigh down so heavily on the
Israelis that they will be unable
to resist us. They don't have a
Asked whether this line of
thinking did not justify an Israeli
pre-emptive strike against the
Arabs, Ben Bella said: "That's
the classical threat. We are con-
stantly told: Watch out the
Israelis have nuclear weapons,
they will blow up everything.

I Following Italian Jewry's Lead
Let no political or religious leader utter now
hypocritical words of sadness for the victims of last
Saturday's machinegunning on the steps of Rome's
beautiful and historic synagogue in the heart of that
city's ancient ghetto.
Let their messages be heaped with scorn upon the
ashes of the condolences offered the Jewish com-
munity there by the Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization's Yasir Arafat. From the very Vatican to the
sweaty halls of Italy's labor unions, from the
mechanical grinders of public opinion in Bonn and
London to their mendacious counterparts in the
White House in Washington, let the words of
sympathy die unborn as spittle from the viper.
For everywhere, the object is the same: to separate
the people of Israel from the government of Israel; to "
separate the Jews of the world from the people of
Israel. Then, it is the hope of the hypocrites. Israel
will lie back in lassitude and pass away.
No Gentile can feel separated from what happened
in Rome last weekend. All bear the burden of their
responsibility back to the beginning of Jew-hatred.
For what their ancestors said of Jews yesterday, they
say again today. And what they say today, their
children will repeat tomorrow.
Neither is this, simply, a perspective of history we
offer as backdrop for the agony of the death and the
suffering experienced by Jews outside of the
synagogue in Rome last Saturday as they emerged
from prayer. It is also an explanation rooted in the
events of the past months involving the war in

The outcry for publicity of the

EDITOR: The Jewish Floridian
The November referendum for
Sports, Arts and Recreation is
great news for Tampa Bay, the
best news being that the "good
life" is for everyone, regardless of
age, income, educational level,
county or city residence.
In our growth market enviorn-
ment, the package of performing
arts center, senior citizen and
handicapped facility at USF,
high school stadiums, wilderness
park and roads will advance by a
quantum leap the area's standing
as an already desirable place to
live and work. All Tampa and
Hillsborough County residents
will benefit, both now and in gen-
erations to come, whether in the
opportunity to contribute
towards their construction
through this limited-duration tax
or in the opportunity to use these
improvements once they are
In particular, the performing
arts center will be a major region-
al facility used not only by local
residents but also by residents of
Pinellas and by visitors to the
entire region, much the same as
our fine airport and stadium are
used by these broad and diverse
groups. As an example of such
regional support, as much as 40
percent of the Tampa Ballet's
tickets are sold to patrons across
the Bay. By backing this tax we
will be acknowledging the far-
reaching scope of influence the
center will have in reality, and
the multiplier effect it will have
on jobs and the economy
throughout the county.
Without this tax which
covers building costs up front,
without the added burden of
years of expensive interest that a
bond issue would require other
means of fund-raising would be
more dramatically necessary. The
tax, instead, provides a painless
way to spread the cost of these
projects among a wide, popular
base. For every $10,000 spent on
taxable goods, the $100 yield
amounts to less than the cost of a
cup of coffee per day. That is a
small enough amount for any of
us to be willing to cast our votes
in favor of the referendum.
Since families in higher income
brackets with more disposable
income will shoulder a greater
percentage of the revenue-pro-
ducing responsibility, there is
also an implicit opportunity to
unify some of the longer estab-
lished elements of the community
with a newer, rapidly growing su-
burban areas. And it is important
to remember that each penny of
sales tax comes out of one's
actual expenditures, not applied
to one's total annual income.
The community that is willing
to tax itself for such capital im-
provements that cater to its
citizens' needs is saying not only
that it believes it has a future,
but also something about that
future. Let's vote YES on Nov. 2
to finance these projects with a
one-year, one-cent tax, and show
our young people, senior citizens,
and outside observers that

ecutive Director of the Jewish
Community Center of Tampa. I
will be assuming my new respon-
sibilities as Executive Director of
the Jewish Community Centers
of South Broward County in mid-
October. Jane, Steven, Evan and
I are very excited about our new
life and the challenges facing us
in the months ahead.
Along with our sense of excit-
ment also comes a feeling of
regret in leaving the many
friends and acquaintances we
have made in Tampa over the
past seven years. We thank you
all for truly making Tampa our
What I will miss most is our
Jewish Community Center, its
fine staff and the many volun-
teers that made it work. We have
witnessed tremendous growth at
the Center over the past years in
program, services, membership,
physical improvements and
community stature, but the job
has just begun.
I have often said, "We are a
community of Jews, not a Jewish
Community." When Tampa, as a
UNITED Jewish Community
sets priorities, educates itself, es-
tablished goals and gives of its
time, and yes, its money, Tampa
will begin to realize its potential
as a Jewish Community. When
the Tampa Jewish community
expects and demands its citizens
to support its synagogues, Fed-
eration, Center and organiza-
tions, Tampa will become what it
has the unique and tremendous
potential to become.
The Tampa Jewish community
has to believe in itself and its in-
situationa and then ACT on those
beliefs. I believe it waa Theodore
Herzl who said "If you will it, it
is no dream." Make the dream
come true for yourself, your chil-
dren and the future of Judaism.

we met with the former Prime
Minister, Yitzhak Rabin and Ye-

Menachem Begin. The next days
were spent at a kibbutz in the
north where we worked and
partied with Israeli kibbuUniks.
The last five days were the most
moving, however. They were
spent in Jerusalem. Not only did
we have a chance to visit the old
city and pray with the Hasidim
at the western wall, but we ac-
tually climbed Masada and spent
the night there. I can not even

Stunned and Angry
Italians Shun Condolences
Friday, October 16, i$j
And DAVID LANDAU I Jerusalem)
Italy's stunned and angered Jewish community
mourned the victims of Saturday's terrorist attack on
worshippers outside of Rome's main synagogue as a police
dragnet sought the perpetrators who killed a two-year-old
child and wounded 37 other persons, many of them
The synagogue, where
thousands of Jews gathered
for a prayer vigil Sunday,
remained under heavy
guard and security was
tightened around synago-
gues and other Jewish
institutions in Italy. Mes-
sages of condolence and
condemnation poured in
from all over the world, in-
cluding statements from
the Vatican and the top
Italian leadership.
BUT ITALY'S Jews would not
be mollified. They blamed the
outrage directly on the audience
granted by Pope John Paul II
last month to Palestine Libera-
tion Organization chief Yasir
They also denounced President
Sandra Pertini and Foreign
Minister Emilio Colombo who re-
ceived Arafat and the harsh criti-
cism of Israel by the Italian
media following the massacre of
Palestinians in west Beirut.
Many Jews saw this as an ill-dis-
guised campaign of anti-Semi-
tism which created a climate for
violence against Jews. State-
ments by Israels two chief rabbis
and by the Cabinet in Jerusalem
seemed to confirm that view.
The terrorists struck at noon,
Rome time, Saturday, hurling
hand grenades and firing
machineguns into a crowd of
some 500 people attending Sab-
bath and Simchat Torah services
at the main synagogue, an histo-
rical landmark in the old Roman
AMONG THE 50 children in
the crowd, two-year-old Stefano
Tache was killed instantly and
his sister was seriously wounded.
Eyewitnesses described the ter-
rorists as five to seven men of
"Mediterranean" type. Descrip-
tions such as "dark skinned" and
"swarthy" were given.
Police set up road-blocks
throughout the city. According
to unconfirmed reports Saturday,
three suspects two men and a
woman were arrested for ques-
tioning. But the search con-
Italy's Premier Biovanni
Spadolini and several ministers
rushed to the scene of the attack.
By then, most of the victims had
been taken to nearby hospitals.
But blood still spotted the side-
walk outside the synagogue
which was littered with prayer
books, prayer shawls, eye glasses
and other personal belongings of
the victims.
PERTINI AND Spadolini ex-
pressed shock and anger over the
attack and sent messages of
sympathy to the Jewish commu-
nity and Chief Rabbi Elio Toaff.
They promised the police would
do all in their power to track,
down and arrest the killers.
The Pope sent a telegram to
the Papal Vicar of Rome asking
him to relay to the Chief Rabbi,
the leaders of the Jewish commu-
nity, the victims and their fami
lies his "firm condemnation fo
his criminal act, all the mor
serious because it took place ii
the house of worship of the Jew-
ish community "
But the messages of sympathy
were met with stoney anger by
the 15,000 Jews of Rome whc
have pulled invisible shutters
around them and preferred to re-
main isolated in their grief
Words serve little purpose, and
the facts of the utmost gravity
are unfortunately what they are,"
Ravvi Toaff declared.
HE ACCUSED the Interior
Ministry of ignoring his pleas for
more police protection for Jewish
institutions, especially after the
Sept. 30 attack on the Jewish
community center in Milan. Both
Pertini ind Spadolini had warned
after that incident against allow-
ing ang'T over the Beirut massa-
cre to lead to acts of anti-
Semitism. But Toaff said his re-
quests for more protections were
treated as "inopportune" by the
Italian authorities.
The Jewish community polite-
ly but firmly turned down a visit
by Pertini after the tragedy and a
government offer to hold an offi-
cial funeral for the dead child. No
Italian authorities were repre-
sented at the burial rites.
The self-imposed isolation of
Rome's Jews from the rest of the
city was a form of bitter reproach
for what they perceived to be the
use of actions by the Israeli gov-
ernment in Lebanon which
most Jews fully supported as
an excuse for anti-Semitic on-
slaughts. Posters with messages
of sympathy and solidarity from
Rome's City Hall were ripped
down almost as soon as they were
put up near the synagogue.
THIS WAS a response to
Rome's Communist Mayor, Ugo
Vetere, who led several pro-PLO,
anti-Israel marches through
Rome in recent weeks. Those
demonstrations were seen as
incitement not only against the
government of Premier Menach-
em Begin and Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon but against Jews in
Similarly, Jews rejected mes-
sages of sympathy from Italian
trade unions, several branches of
which had demonstratively re-
fused to service El Al planes at
Rome's airport and Israeli ships
at Italian ports after the Beirut
They treated with contempt
messages of sympathy from the
PLO representative in Rome,
Nemmer Hammad: a message
from Arafat to Pertini expressing
condolences to the Italian people
and the families of the victims in
the name of the PLO; and a mes-
sage from the Rev. Hilarion
Capucci, the Melchite archbishop
who served a prison term in Is-
rael for smuggling arms to Pales-
tinian terrorists while he was
serving as head of his church in
Jerusalem a decade ago.
BUT THE most serious reper-
cussions of the latest tragedy
may be in the realm of relations
between Jews and the Vatican.
The audience the Pope granted
Arafat Sept. 14 was viewed as a
legitimization of an international
terrorist and arch-enemy of Israel
by the leader of the Roman
Catholic Church. The Israeli gov-
ernment and Jews the world over
had tried strenuously to prevent
it, but to no avail.
The Israeli Cabinet made
oblique references to it in a state-
ment issued Sunday condemning
the Rome synagogue attack. The
statement deplored "encou-
ragement (given terrorism) in
words and deeds by (Italian gov-
ernmental and other circles."
Asked to identify those "circles."
Cabinet secretary Dan Meridor
told reporters, "Take a look at
Arafat's itinerary these past few
weeks." He was clearly hinting at
the PLO leader's meetings with
the Pope, President Pertini and
other Italian statesmen
Israel's two Chief Rabbis,
Shlomo Goren and Ovadia Yosef,
were more direct. Ashkenazi
Chief Rabbi Goren. in a state-
ment Saturday night, called the
Rome synagogue attack "the re-
sult of incitement by the media,
begun by the Pope's granting an
audience to the master-butcher,
the head of the PLO ... He (the
Pope) welcomed him with a right
royal arm." According to Goren.
the Papal audience was "intend-
ed to influence public opinion
against the Jews."
YOSEF, the Sephardic Chief
Rabbi. charged that "The
(Italian) leaders are responsible.
The Pope gave a reception for the
chief assassin and so did the
President of the country."
The Israeli Foreign Ministry
issued a statement Saturday say-
ing all Israelis shared the grief of
the bereaved families. The
"criminal act perpetrated by ter-
rorists demonstrates once
again the base nature of those
who plot against Jewish worship-
pers on their festivals. It is time
for the enlightened world to unite
against terror and no longer sur-
render to it," the Foreign Minis-
try said.
There was a reaction to the
Chief Rabbis' condemnations
from Terrence Cardinal Cooke,
head of the Archdiocese of New
York, who termed the attack on
the Pope "absurd" and "slander-
ous." Expressing "outrage" over
the Rome attack, Cooke declared:
"We call upon religious leaders
in our own community not to be
engulfed by vengeful and absurd
words of slanderous recrimina-
tion. Now is the time for words
and works of peace, not vio-

IN ROME, the recently form-
ed Christian-Jewish Friendship
Association sent telegrams to the
Jewish community and the fami-
lies of the victims offering coop-
eration for any eventuality.
"With profound sadness and
anger we participate in your in-
describable pain for this massa-
cre," the message said.
"We wish to solicit the
churches, the politicians, the
press, the Interior Ministry,
Town Hall and unions to give
forth less rhetoric and instead
examine their consciences: All of
the aforementioned are re-
sponsible for having created a cli-

The European branch of the
World Jewish Congress made a
similar declaration to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency in Rome
Sunday. "In solidarity with the
Jewish community of Rome and
with the families of the victims to
whom it extends its heartfelt
sympathies, the World Jewish
Congress European Branch ex-
presses its determination,
together with the Union of
Italian Jewish Communities to
press instantly for immediate and
effective measures by govern-
ments to combat international
terrorism whose racist and clear-
ly anti-Semitic nature threatens
democratic society itself.
"It solemnly warns all general
and religious authorities of the
danger of appeasing terrorist
action and of the risks inherent in
giving any form of political
recognition to those whose lan-
guage is that of hatred and
violence against Jews and other
minority groups," the WJC
statement said.
IN NEW YORK, United Na-
tions Secretary General Javier
Perez de Cuellar expressed
"shock and revulsion at the at-
tack in Rome." In the statement,
issued by his spokesman, the
Secretary General extended his
sympathy to the families of the
In New York, Maynard Wish-
ner, president of the American
Jewish Committee, sent a cable
to the president of the Union of
Jewish Communities of Italy,
Otto Lenghi, expressing grief for
the synagogue tragedy. "Let us
hope, pray and work that the
world draw from this tragedy to
seek an end at last to terrorism
and to the anti-Semitism that
feeds it." Wishner said.
Hyman Bookbinder, the
AJCommittee's Washington rep-
resentative, and Rabbi Joshua
Haberman, president of the
Washington, D.C. Board of
Rabbis, signed a message Lai
delivered to the Italian Amff
sador, Rmaldo PetrignanL l,
said, in part: "
"WITH DUE regard for fa
precious principle of withholding
judgment about who is guilty 3
this heinous crime until the
criminals are identified and
apprehended, we feel compelled
to express our conviction that
contributing to this crime has
been the hostile, intemperau
reporting by the Italian media of
recent Middle East development*
and the extraordinarily friend-
ly hospitality extended recently
to the acknowledged leader of
anti-Jewish terrorism, Plq
chairman Yasir Arafat."
Nathan Perlmutter, national
director of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, also con-
demned the Rome attack as "an
explosion of hate without a trace
of humanity. But spare us ex-
pressions of sympathy from gov-
ernments and religious leaders
who only a few weeks ago ap-
plauded and comforted in this
very same city (Rome) terror-
ism's personification, Yasir Ara-
fat. He would appreciate such
hypocrisy: for Jews it is sore
Ivan Novick. president of the
Zionist Organization of America,
also denounced the Pope for
receiving Arafat. "Those who
capitulate to terrorism, be they
spiritual leaders, officials of Italy
or world powers, must assume
their share of guilt for giving
acceptability to terrorism in con-
tradiction of all that is holy and
humane," Novick said.
Emanuel Muravchik, director
of the Jewish Committee, in a
telegram to President Pertini,
said Saturday's act of terrorism
came "on the heels of your own
embrace of terrorism's arch
architect (Arafat), in addition to
the anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli
actions of the Communist-domi-
nated trade unions (that) helped
create the climate, the climate
which has brought Italy to this
moment of deep sorrow."

After School Education
If you're a parent trying to
help your child struggle through
a subject such as math that you
haven't had to do for 20 or 30
years, the experience can be very
But there's a way around such
touchy situations. "ASAP" -
the "After-School Achievement
Program" is a course planned
specifically to alleviate that kind
of tension. Designed to help a
child master troublesome sub-
jects and improve academic per-
formance, the course is one of
several offered at Tampa Educa-
tional Center. Instruction begins
this fall and will run throughout
the year.
"This is preventive main-
tenance," says Center Director
Illyce Mendelsohn. "Don't wait
until later in the year when your
child's grades may have suffered
and self-esteem may be low as a
The program provides a place
where children can work on their
assignments and get extra help in
a small group setting of two to
six students.
In a busy home-family en-
vironment, parents may realize
there's a problem but not know
how to correct it. They may be
unfamiliar with a subject or how
to teach it. Tampa Educational
Center's staff members who
know the course content teach
and explain it to the student,
recognizing quickly where the in-
dividual's weaknesses may be.
Certified teachers analyze how
and why errors are made and
where the difficulties are. Then
they design an individual pro-
gram and teach concepts and
techniques that strengthen and
reinforce academic skills.
"We can watch a problem un-
fold and catch it before it's too
late," she says. Ms. Mendelsohn
further explains that teacher
guiding as few as two or three
students at a time is an asset for
the individual, as the child is with
peers in a supportive learning en-
viomment tailored to his or her
needs. '
Ms. Mendelsohn further ex-
plains that teacher guiding as few
as two or three students at a time
is an asset for the individual, as
the child is with peers in a sup-
portive learning environment
tailored to his or her needs.
"The child is in school and the
parent is at work all day long.
When they reconvene it should be
a positive time," Mrs. Mendel-
sohn says. Time at home can be
kept relaxing by having the child
work out many acadmic problems
at Tampa Educational Center be-
fore going home to be with the
By using quality instructional
materials, learning games, a
variety of backup resources and a
positive approach, Mrs. Mendel-
sohn says the program creates
enthusiasm for learning. Children
respond well to the center's
"warm, personable" atmosphere,
she says.
Part of the program's success
derives from teaching the same
concept in many different ways,
not just from "the same old text-
book." Changing the environ-
ment "it's not school and it's
not a desk at home or the kitchen
table" is one way children at
all levels of learning can be en-
couraged to want to learn, ac-
cording to Mrs. Mendelsohn.
The benefit to the entire family
is that the child comes from the
center either free of homework
obligations or, at least, relieved
of the :nost strenuous work. The
child learns to understand aid
digest the content, grasp ;a'eas
better, complete assignments
correctly. That leaves time to "do
his or her own thing" the rest of
the evening.
Students may be enrolled in
"ASAP" for one or more days per
week, with the exact course of
study individualized according to
need. There may be organized
study to prepare for tests,
quizzes and exams, or an oppor-
tunity to strengthen outlining
and note-taking or other study
organization skills. The rate of
learning will be at the child's
pace. The fee for "ASAP" is
S8.50 per hour.
Tampa Educational Center
staff comprises certified teachers,
certified speech pathologists,
clinical social workers, learning
disability specialists, clinical and
counseling PhD psychologists,
and foreign language specialists.
In addition to the "ASAP" pro-
gram, the center offers individual
tutoring, gifted and enrichment
classes, speech evaluation and
therapy, a learning disabilities
program, foreign language in-
struction including English as a
second language, family counsel-
ing, and SAT preparation.
Tampa Educational Center
teachers also act as a liaison with
( the child's classroom teachers.
Referrals for enrollment may
come from concerned parents or
from public and private school
The center has two locations,
at 13930 N. Dale Mabry Hwy.,
Suite 3, in Carrollwood, and 3601
Swann Ave., Suite 205. For more

tween 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Hasidic Jew Elected to Office
In Gotham Is Lubavitcher
The first Hasidic Jew to be
elected to a public office in
New York City is Rabbi
Yisrael Rosenfeld, a mem-
ber of the Lubavitch move-
ment who has been for
many years executive di-
rector of the Crown Heights
Jewish Community Council
of Brooklyn.
Rosenfeld was elected district
leader for the 43rd Assembly
District in the Sept. 23 primary,
making him a member of the
state committee. He was elected
as one of the candidates put
forward by the Brooklyn Hasidic
area's first political action com-
mittee. Rosenfeld said the politi-
cal action committee had the
formal name of the Committee for
Community Unity.
HE SAID this was the first
time such a political action com-
mittee had been organized for the
Crown Heights voters. He said
three other candidates backed by
the new political action commit-
tee also were elected. Mary Pin-
kett was elected to the city coun-
cil. Joan Gill was elected state
committee woman and Marty
Markowitz was reelected State
Senator. The candidate for State
Assembly, Ozzie Fletcher, lost.
Asked whether his duties as an
elected official might hamper his
work as community council exec-
1 utive director, Rosenfeld told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, "on
the contrary, it will help. I will
continue to do as a district leader
what I have been doing as execu-
tive director, but my elective post
should give me more clout in
serving the Crown Heights com-
Asked whether the primary
election choices did not have to
run in the November general
elections, Rosenfeld said that he
and Gill were named in the pri-
mary as Democratic members of
the state committee. He added
that Markowitz, the State Sena-
torial candidate, and Ms. Pin-
kett. the City Council candidate,
had won in the Democratic pri-
mary and that, in his district,
winning the Democratic primary
was tantamount to election, Re-
publican being a minimal politi-
cal factor.

But many Third World nations have joined Wet

THE U.S. has warned that it would not participate J

Israel Issues GPN,
Military Assistance Data
The State of Israel has issued
figures for its gross national pro-
duct from 1973 to the present, as
well as economic assistance and
military assistance from the
United States from 1962 until the
present. These figures were re-
leased by William Jackson, Di-
rector of the State of Israel Bond
Office in Tampa.
In terms of GNP. Israel has
more than doubled its GNP in the
last 10 years. Economic assis-
tance consisting of loans and
grants, has remained fairly
constant at about $800 million
per year during the last five
years. And military assistance
has been at $1.4 billion each year
with the exception of 1979. the
year in which the Egyptinals-
raeli Peace Agreement was
signed, when the military assis-
tance was $4 billion to take care
of redeployment of military bases I
from the Sinai to the Negev.
Israel is spending approxi-
mately twice as much for civilian J
imports as it is receiving in
economic aid. All the military as- >
sistance is spent on import of
arms and military equipment
from the U.S.
$3 Billion of which are a multi
annual appropriation for rede-
ployment of the Negev, out of
which $800 Million is in the form
of grant and the remainder in the

Tough Talks

meetings were not publicized," he
disclosed, "at the requests of the
Foreign Ministers."
He said that in his meetings he
was surprised to find "a better
atmosphere" from the one he had
expected. "It has become evident
to me that a lot of the criticism
toward Israel (because of the
Labanese crisis) has subsided,"
Shamir said.
He asserted that a great deal of
the anti-Israeli criticism was
based on "unreliable media
reports." He said that when he
confronted the diplomats with
the facts, many of them were
"somewhat defensive" and said
part of their information was
based on reports in the Israeli
press or Israelis writing abroad.
"THERE ARE elements in Is-
rael who do not consider the in-
terests of Israel when the criticize
Israel abroad," Shamir said in his
briefing, contending that no
other nation is criticized abroad
by its own citizens as is Israel.
Asked about a report by col-
umnist Jack Anderson that he is
the major advocate in the Israeli
government to favor renewed ties
with the Soviet Union, Shamir
said Israel is interested in having
ties with all countries, including
the Soviet Union. He pointed out,
however, that the Soviets broke
these relations with Israel during
the Six-Day War, and since they
initiated the break they are the
ones to restore the ties between
the two countries.

Moshe Levinger, leader of the
Kiryat Arba-Hebron settlers,
charged that Hammer had "be-
trayed" the cause for which he
was elected and demanded that
he resign from the Knesset.
Hammer was also attacked by
NRP rightwinger Rabbi Haim
Druckman, a Knesset member
and Gush Emunim leader.
Several Gush Emunim settle-
ments on the West Bank inform-
ed Hammer that he was now
persona non grata in their midst.
BUT THE Education Minister
was strongly defended by his col-
league. Deputy Foreign Minister
Ben-Meir. Although Ben-Meir
has often supported the Gush
Emunim position, he publicly
blasted them this week for advo-
cating "endless war" for Israel
and a policy which would mean
that "we would police the world
with the blood of our children."
He said it was the Gush Emunim
rather than himself and Hammer
who had deviated from the
principles of religious Zionism.
Both Hammer and Ben-Meir
have long been considerably more
hardline on foreign policy mat-
ters than the NRP's elder states-
man, Interior Minister Yosef
Burg. Burg, for his part, was
sharply critical of Begin when the
Premier, initially resisted the
creation of a formal commission
of inquiry to investigate Israel's
role if any in the massacre of
Palestinians in west Beirut last
There appears to be much soul-
searching at this juncture within
the NRP which, though a
minority party, has always held
the balance of political strength
which enabled the larger parties
to establish viable coalition gov-
HAMMER, in his TV inter-
view last week, hinted that the
NRP's "special message" was
perhaps being blurred by the
partnership in Begins coalition
between the even more Orthodox
Aguda Israel party and the even
more nationalist Likud.
The implication was that the
NRP, as a national religious
movement, might be better off in
partnership with the moderate
Labor Alignment, a role it held
for some 30 years, before Labor
was unseated by Likud in 1977.
The NRP suffered serious
losses in the last elections in
June, 1981 from which it emerged

there is nothing zero obli-

Sharon, Peres, Rabin, right-

with that irreplaceable jewel,
whether in the interest of some
illusory political gain or the
momentary titilation of the
flagellation post, had better hope
he never has to face his maker.
TO SAY all this is in no way to
belittle the dimensions of the
tragedy that took place in Beirut,
or the incredible manner in which
the government initially con-
fronted it. Let the totally inde-
pendent commission of inquiry
Begin so unwisely opposed pro-
ceed to its appointed business.
Let all errors of judgment, omis-
sion and commission if any
be exposed along with their per-
If the government is thereby
discredited, then let it resign. Be-
gin and Sharon are not Israel
anymore than Golda and Dayan
were, though it bears pointing
out that neither of the latter two
did resign, even as their adminis-
tration presided over the' most
traumatic episode in the history
of the state, the loss of 2,600 of
Israel's brightest and best in the
Yom Kippur War.
A nation deep in mourning but

Commission to speak its peace
before delivering its own verdict.
come the present situation as a
sense of proportion. To concede
that Lebanon is a place where
massacre has been a way of life
for at least seven years is not to
excuse Israel's involvement,
however substantial or tenuous,
that might prove, in the events of
Sept. 16-18 in Beirut. But it is
also not to declare the end of the
world at hand. What the murder
of three million Cambodians and
the "yellow rain" poisonings of
tens of thousands of Afghanis
and Laotians have not yet
wrought, will surely not be
wrought by Israel's proximity to
a scene in which one group of
Arabs killed another group of
Arabs in settlement of some old
and new scores.
Nor does it suffice to say that
those in the West who ignored
terror and massacre in Lebanon
for so long and recently couldn't
wait to extricate their forces from
the country for fear of one of
them contracting a fatal hangnail
are hardly in a position to sit in
judgment on Israel. That wul not
mitigate any failings in carrying
out the responsibility Israel as-
sumed when it undertook to fill
the vacuum created in Beirut by
the departure of the multina-
tional forces.
AGAIN, however, there is a
need to be mindful of the his-
torical context of the Lebanese
tragedy and to be especially
vigilant against that most dan-
gerous of all syndromes emo-
tional self-indulgence. If there is
one thing Israel with its crushing
economic, military and security
burden and large, unfinished
social tasks can least afford, it is
an open-ended emotional binge.
As a function of pure remorse,
it might be understandable
within limits but there is de-
veloping around it the menacing
vacuity that personified the ex-
cesses of the American "pro-
testors" of the late 60s and early
70s which did so much to under-
mine that nation's will and values
and to prepare the ground for the
catastrophic events that followed
in Southeast Asia.
The enemy may well be smell-
ing blood in Israel for the first
time. What he has failed to win
through wars, terror, the oil wea-
pon, boycott and a billion dollar
propaganda siege Israel's ex-
tinction a reborn Jewish death

Protests Anti-Semitism
To Tunisian Ambassador
France's Chief Rabbi Rene
Sirat has protested to
Ambassador Hedi Mabruk
of Tunisia about the attack
on Jewish homes and shops
in the small cities of Zarzis
and Ben Gardane on the
eve of Rosh Hashanah and
called on the government to
take all necessary steps to
ensure the safety of the
4,000-member Jewish com-
Sirat also protested to the Am-
bassador that the synagogues in
the two cities had to be closed
during the High Holy Days in an
attempt by the community to
avoid further disturbances. The
Jewish homes and shops were
looted and set afire, but there
were no casualties.
MABRUK TOLD Sirat that all
necessary measures have already
been taken to protect the two
Jewish communities and that his
government is sending additional
police forces to areas where
similar incidents might occur.
President Habib Bourguiba of
Tunisia, who was in the Embassy
building when Sirat called on
Mabruk several days ago, gave
the Chief Rabbi his personal as-
surances on the matter.
Bourguiba, who was in Paris on a
private visit, conferred with
President Francois Mitterrand
and reportedly called for Israel
and the PLO to mutually
recognize each other.
The incidents in Ben Gardane
and Zarzis took place after pro-
Palestinian elements demon-
strated in the centers of both
cities against the massacre which
had taken place in the Palestinian
refugee camps of Sabra and
Shatila in west Beirut. An official
Tunisian communique later said
that more than a dozen demon-
strators were arrested.
sources quoted by the French
news agency, Agence France

very important not to repeatedly

However, Berman insisted that
Reagan's Mideast plan was not
constructive and weakened the
American position as an honest
mediator in the Middle East. He
contended that as a result of Rea-
gan's proposals, the Arabs were
now negotiating with the Ameri-
can position rather than with Is-
HE SAID that Reagan had
promised American Jewish
leaders before the 1980 elections
that he would always support a
unified Jerusalem under Israel's
rule. His new plan is a deviation
from that promise, Berman con-
tended. Reagan, announcing his
proposals Sept. 1, said the future
status of Jerusalem was to be de-
termined by negotiations.
Berman claimed there was an
American Jewish consensus on
five major points: "Israel cannot
return to its pre-1967 borders and
we will strongly oppose any effort
that will require it to go back to
those indefensible frontiers; We
will oppose any change in the
long-standing American policy of
refusing to deal with the PLO; A
unified Jerusalem is the capital of
Israel; An independent Palestin-
ian state on the West Bank and
Gaza will be a dagger pointed at
the heart of Israel; American
Jews will continue their efforts to
ensure continued American sup-
port for Israel."
Begin also had a meeting with
Greville Janner, MP, president of
the Board of Deputies of British
Jews. Janner told reporters later
that his delegation wanted it
understood that all Israeli ac-
tions had a direct effect on Jew-
ish communities abroad. "At this
moment it is very difficult to say
a good word for Israel without
being shouted down," he said.
JANNER SAID he told Begin
that "although Israelis tended to
regard events here as matters
totally of their concern, when
there is massive concern in the
world over Israel's action, this
has an almost immediate reflec-
tive impact on the Jewish com-
munities of the world and on peo-
ples' attitudes towards the com-
munities and toward the Jewish

Timerman's Son in Jail
TEL AVIV (JTA) Daniel Tiinerman, son 1
Jacobo Timerman, the former Argentinian journal
imprisoned for several years by the Argentine authoritie
has been sentenced to 28 days in an army prison forrefi
ing to serve inside Lebanon, on grounds of conscience.
HIS FATHER said that is was strange that in a cou
try where a young man or woman could get out of 1
service on grounds of religion, his son could not refuse I
serve on grounds of conscience. He said he had left Argea
tina to avoid such practices.
Daniel Timerman, 31, who said he had served in..
anon for one week but had been "shocked by what he I
seen," stated that he was fully prepared to serve
where within Israel.
