The annual ISRAELI CHAS-
IDIC FESTIVAL, enjoyed by
Jewish community of Tampa
many years, returns once
in Wednesday night, Dec. 16
the Jewish Community Center.
The spectacular musical pro-
iction of song, dance and music
rfnrmed by top Israeli stars
is underway at 7:30 p.m. in the
liter's auditorium. If the past

The Festival comes to Tampa
ith songs that have been prize
inners over the past 14 years,

tion and choreography, with the
opportunity to hear, feel and live
the old Jewish tradition in the

Originated in 1969, the Festi-
val was a contest for the best
music set to Biblical verses, and
every year since, composers from
"fund the world enter their
wks in the spirited competition.
Intended to be a one-time con-
tot, the overwhelming success of

The Festival's international
debut was at New York's Car-

time, scores of cities on four con-

This year marks the Festival's
Uth visit to North America with
58 performances scheduled for

Fourteen festivals have pro-
duced 14 LP record albums, 140
new songs among them: "Shema
Israel," "Shehecheyanu," "Ani
Ma'amin," "Adon Olam." and
"Makhutcha." The Festival
attained immortality as its songs
became a part of the daily serv-
ices. Passages of the prayers
which were recited for hundreds
of years are now being sung to
the new melodies which origi-
nated in the Chassidic Festival.
And in some cases, the new
melodies have even replaced the
traditional ones.

Untrue Andropov is Jewish
London Chronicle Syndicate
Western newspaper re-
ports about the alleged
"Jewish origins" of Yuri
Andropov, the successor of
Leonid Brezhnev as general
secretary of the Soviet
Communist Party, may
well be an indication that
the Kremlin power struggle
is far from over, since the
reports appear to emanate
from Soviet sources in
Moscow. These sources al-
most centainly belong to an
anti-Andropov group.
In the same way, anti-Brezh-
nev Soviet sources "revealed" to
Western correspondents in Mos-
cow as recently as June of this
year, that Mrs. Brezhnev is Jew-
This, unlike the story that An-
dropov is of Jewish origin, is
true. It has also been known to
Jewish emigrants from the Soviet
Union for many years and was,
indeed, published in Israel in
THE POINT is however, that
it was not until Brezhnev and his
supporters were defeated by Mr.
Andropov and his supporters at a
plenary meeting of the Soviet
Communist Party's central com-
mittee in June, that the Jewish
ness of Mrs. Brezhnev was publi-
cized by Soviet sources.
In other words, so long as
Brezhnev's position was unchal-
lenged, Mrs. Victoria Brezhnev's
Jewish birth was considered irre-
The matter over which the
Brezhnev faction was defeated
was the succession. Brezhnev and
his faction had wanted Konstan-
tin Chernenko to succeed him,
but Andropov and his supporters
were too strong for them.
NOW THAT Andropov has in-
deed succeeded Brezhnev, his op-
ponents in the Politburo are us-
ing the same tactics against him
as he and his supporters used
against Brezhnev.
Hence the statement in The
Sunday Times that Andropov's
"mother's family was almost cer-
tainly Jewish." There is no evi-
dence to support his claim.
A day earlier, the Times, in its
diary column, described An-
dropov as "an educated man,
speaking four languages, includ-
ing Yiddish," who "unusually
dared to marry a Jewess at the
height of Stalin's anti-Semitic
Jewish Congressman
Rep. Elliott Levitas (D., Ga.) was
reelected by a two-thirds margin
to his fifth term, bringing the
number of Jewish Congressmen
in the next House of Representa-
tives to a record 30. Seven of
them are newcomers. The next
Senate, to take office in January,
will also have a record number of
Jews eight, of whom two are
Yuri Andropov
THERE IS nothing "unusual"
about Andropov marrying a Jew-
ish woman during Stalin's rule. A
Soviet leader said in the 1950s
that he and his colleagues could
not be anti-Semitic, because
"most of us have Jewish wives."
This was true of at least five
Viacheslav Molotov, a former
Prime Minister and Foreign
Minister; Andrei Andreyev, a
member of the Politburo, and
three heads of State: Marshal
Kliment Voroshilov. Nikolai
Podgorny and Leonid Brezhnev.
As for Yiddish, it is extremely
unlikely that Andropov knows a
word of it.
Not only is he not of Jewish
origin, but he was born in a vil-
lage near Stavropol, in the north-
ern Caucasus, where there were
no European Jews, because they
were not pen.iitted in Tsarist
times (Andropov was born in
1914) to live in villages outside
the Pale of Settlement.
MOREOVER, the indigenous
Jews of the area have never been
Andropov worked for the So-
viet Communist .Party in the
Karelo-Finnish ruMbllc between
1940 and 1951. .'.*.'*.'
Between 1954 and 1957, he was
Soviet Ambassador in Budapest.
He was then put in charge of
the central committee's depart-
ment for "liaison with Com-
munist and workers', parties in
the Socialist countries." Since
these included East Germany, he
probably learned German.
He is also said to have a good
knowledge of English.
In 1967, Andropov was ap-
pointed chairman of the State
Security Committee (KGB
security police), a post he held
until May of this year, when he
was succeeded by Colonel-
General ViUay Fedorchuk,
formerly head of the KGB in the

Congregations Kol Ami and
Rodeph Sholom and the Tampa
Jewish Federation Women's
Division. The program will be
held at the Jewish Community
Center, Thursday. Dec. 16 at 7:30

April together with her family,
her husband, two children and
mother. They now live in Israel.
Since 1979, Bella and her
family have been involved in
Zionist activities in Leningrad,
attended lectures on Jewish his-
tory and culture and studied He-
brew. They have participated in
various seminars including
Jewish language. Bella will speak

This year's Women's Plea is
especially important in high-
lighting the plight of all Soviet
Jews, because Jewish emigration
from the Soviet Union is at the
lowest point since 1971. Special
efforts must be made on behalf of
the Soviet Jewish Refuseniks. A
petition will be available for sig-
natures whkh will then be for-
warded to Russia's government.

Being a Jew In December
Of Congregation Schaarai Zedek
Any Jew who does not feel 8
dilemma in the month of Decem-
ber is indeed fortunate. I am not
one of those fortunate few. As a
young person I joined with others
in my High School Glee Club as
we went through the neighbor
hoods singing (quartet or octet)
Christmas carols. I helped
decorate dozens of Christmas
trees in the homes of my non-
Jewish friends. On the other
hand, I recall so vividly my feel-
ing of estrangement when we
would sing the same carols in
school, and being in view of
everyone I knew I had either to
sing such lines as "O Come let us
adore Him, Christ the Lord," or
"Christ, the Savior is born."
Ieither had to sing them, or hum
the lines in a way that it looked
like my lips were moving, so I
would not be forced to sing the
words that were contrary to my
religious beliefs. Somehow, I did
not mind it when carolling in the
streets, because I chose to be part
of that fellowship, and no one was
telling me what I had to do or
suffer the embarrassment of non-
In addition, I love the music
(Handel's "Messiah" is always a
spiritual as well as musical ex-
perience for me even if the the-
ology is not mine). The midnight
mass with its pageantry is a
beautiful thing indeed, and I
have experienced everything
from the High mass of the
Catholic and Episcopal churches
to the folk masses of some of the
more Humanist communions. I
have loved them all.
I have loved all of this as a Jew
looking in from the outside. But I
know that it is not my own fes-
tival. In the spirit of friendship I
have enjoyed and been inspired
by another religious culture while
remaining myself.
The problems enter when
forces, subtle, or not so subtle en-
ter to confuse anyone concerning
his identity. That is why I could
enjoy carolling with my friends
but resented having to sing the
same songs in school assemblies.
And quite frankly, that is why
joint Chanukah-Christmas pro-
grams of any variety disturb me.
They are often arranged with the
best of motivation, but the result
of such programs can lead to con-
fusion. I feel this way most
strongly within the public
schools where by law, religion
and education should be kept
separate. This is a matter about
which we Jews, as a religious
minority, continue to be sensitive
and alert.
It also bothers me to see Jews
celebrating Christmas in their
homes (even though no religious
content may be intended). I
would also resent, as a minister,
to see Chanukah celebrated in a
non-Jewish home.
As a rabbi, I have expressed
these feelings many times to both
Jewish and non-Jewish audi-
ences. Often, the non-Jewish
audience has been more recep-
tive. This simply highlights the
difficulties that one finds being a

Jew in the month of December.
To participate in Christmas
somehow is said to be disloyal to
the continuity of Judaism, and
not to participate sets the Jew
apart from his neighbors, which
is considered to be undesirable. It
is a "puzzlement" and anyone
who thinks the answers are easy
is simply not thinking. To resist
the beauty of Christmas seems to
be unrealistic and unfriendly. To
participate is to risk the confu-
sion of identities. It is always dif-
ficult to be a Jew. Sometimes it is
more difficult than at other
times. December is one of those
And it also is this concern for
non-confusion of identities that I
would suggest to be the basis for
a positive approach during
December. It is not that Chanu-
kah and Christmas usually come
close enough so that some real
distinctions can be blurred.
Whatever we make of Chanukah,
it can in no way be the Holy Day
that Christmas is for Christians
(the second most important Holy
Day of the Christian calendar).
But that's not the problem. We
don't try to imitate the religious
meaning. We follow its jollity.
Some do it by having vestiges of
Christmas in their homes. That
can lead to confusn Others
outdo their non-Jewish tru-nas in
lavish giving. I prefer this latter
way (although there an. obvious-
ly certain aspects of my value
system that are offended by it).
Why do I prefer the latter way?
Because it is OUR holiday and
thus it is a way of performing one
more MITZVAH. Also it is a
good time to emphasize an ap-
proach to being an American
Jew, namely, that it is a good
time to emphasize an approach to
being an American Jew, namely,
that in the general community,
we participate fully (even if at
Christmas time it can get a little
hairy) but our homes our our
special sanctuary. In Hebrew, the
home is called the Mikdash Mat,
the small sanctuary. It is in our
homes that values are taught or
not taught. And it is from our
homes that our children subtly
learn to what we say "YES" and
to what we say "NO." NOT to
t">ve symbols of other religions
(even their secular symbols) is a
positive expression of our Jewish
identity as is also (obviously)
the full observance of what is
ours. My personal experience has
been that our little darlings do
not suffer severe or long lasting
trauma by being denied Santa
Claus in their home. We adults
suffer more of the trauma and
truth to tell, often foist our own
insecurities onto our chil
Our code expression is"im
doing it for them."

Look for Susan Marenus and Jackie Walker (if vou can find
them behind the puppets) as budding television stars on PM
Magazine, Channel 44, at 7 p.m., on Dec. 13. As active members
of National Council of Jewish Women, they are two, of a number
of women from that organization, who work in conjunction with
the Tampa Police Department in the traveling "A-OK (Alert
Our Kids) Puppet Show." This 25 minute show, featuring the
well known and loved "Officer Ollie" puppet, travels to the
various schools in the Hillsborough County Public School
system, to teach "Stranger Danger" to the youngsters. NCJW
wanted to work with the police department in such a program as
this, so they contacted the department, learned how to work the
puppets, syncronize with the tape, follow along with the script,
etc. and now a dozen women are trained and ready to go
whenever the police department is scheduled for a show. Susan
and Jackie are especially thrilled about the upcoming showing of
their performance at Children's Nest Day Care Center, as PM
Magazine is truly a tool by which to reach many more children
with their important message, than they could ever hope to in
one puppet show. So be sure to tune in with your children and
grandchildren then while you are being entertained, your
young ones will also be learning some valuable lessons.

and where we are supposed to be) I don't know how you find the
time to do anything else, much leas take on the presidency of an
organization. At any rate, lots of luck on your new position, and
our wishes for a successful and productive year.

Congregation Rodeph Sholom college students are inviud
to join together on Friday night, Dec. 24 for a special college
student reunion. It will be a perfect time to go visit with old
friends and meet some new ones. An informal oneg shabbat will
follow in honor of the students.
Lou Zipkin, president of the Brotherhood of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek informs us that that ever popular annual
"Sports Night" is just around the corner. The men of the Broth-
erhood are invited to bring their children to this dinner meeting
which will be followed by a sports oriented program. It's an
event that is always looked forward to by Dads and Kids alike!
Mary Kanter, Religious School Administration at
Congregation Kol Ami, informs us about such a special "at
tivity day" that the school recently had that we thought you
would enjoy hearing about it too. The Religious School students
staged a Chassidic Wedding. Stephanie Lynn (the bride) and
Kevin Cross (the groom) were "wed" in the traditional Jewish
ceremony. The attendants, family and friends were represented
by the other members of the Hey Class. The Dalet Class set the
tables and did all of the serving at the reception. Greta and Saul
Schiffman prepared an absolutely beautiful wedding cake for the
event. The Gimmel Class all pitched in and decorated the
Huppah. The Alef and Bet Classes learned two dances and
performed them for the guests, under the instruction of Sandy
In wood and Mary Schemo. The second graders sang a lovely
song for the bride and groom wishing them good luck. The first
graders designed and artistically colored a giant Ketubah
(marriage certificate) while the kindergarten class helped
decorate the social hall and make the kiddush cup. The pre-
school classes worked on the table decorations and the "mazel
tov" sign. Everyone was involved and had a great itme. Even
Larry Schultz (photographer and daddy of student of the
Religious School) came in and photographed the wedding. This
was truly a living learning experience for the children and for the
parents who came to observe and share in the festivities.
The week of Dec. 13 will certainly be a special one for both
children and parents at the Jewish Community Center Pre-
school. Each class, on various days, will present a Chanukah
breakfast for their parents. The chhildren will make their own
invitations, cook their own food, present hand-made gifts to
their parents, and entertain their guests with candle lighting,
songs, and some groups will even present a play. The delicious
breakfast that the children will make and share with their
parents includes: latkes, applesauce (made from scratch), eggs,
and Chanukah cookies. What a special way this will be to share a
very special holiday with the little ones. I certainly look forward
to attending my daughter, Ashley's, Chanukah breakfast in the
"Yellow Room" maybe I'll see you there attending your
child's party.
Judy Baach, Cradle Roll Chairman for the Sisterhood of
Congregation Schaarai Zedek, informs us that this year's ac-
tivities are in full swing. The Cradle Roll program includes all
Schaarai Zedek children from birth to their enrollment in the
kindergarten class of the Religious School. Children receive their
own enrollment certificate, special birthday cards for each birth-
day, and they are invited to participate in scheduled holiday
parties at Sukkot, Chanukah, Shavuot, and Passover. This
year's Chanukah party, which will be chock full of games, ac-
tivities, stories, songs, and yummy holiday foods to munch on.
will take place at the Temple on Saturday, Dec 11, at 10:30 am-
If you are a member of Congregation Schaarai Zedek and your
preschool age child has not been included in the Cradle Roll
Program, then contact Judy right away at 877-1015.

First Chanukah Candle To Be Lit Friday Evening
Jews throughout the world will be
lighting the first Chanukah candle on Fri-
day night. These days, it's difficult to
quote the French, but one of them hit it on
the head a long time ago when he said that
the more things change, the more they re-
main the same.
The story of Chanukah is centered on a
small supply of oil that last eight days
when it should have lasted only one. With
the advent of the Maccabee victory, the
Temple had been cleansed of its Graeco-
Assyrian profanation, and it had been re-
dedicated that is the meaning of Chanu-
kah in Hebrew.
The sacred oil lasted just long enough
for more sacred oil to be produced so that
the Eternal Light could continue aflame
uninterrupted after its rekindling. No one
thought it would.
Since then, the Festival of the Lights,
enshrined in the Chanukah Menorah or
Chanukiah, has become what is by now a
millenial tradition. So what is new?
Israel today is the cleansed and re-
dedicated Temple, cleansed and redidicated
from its profanation by thousands of years
of alien squatters upon its land. But the
meagerness of its resources keep Israel on
the spit of a single day's supply of oil not
oil merely in the true sense of the word, but
of resources it must acquire from elsewhere
in order to survive.
It is the dedication of world Jewry to Is
reel that helps keep the true miracle of
modern Israel alive today the people of
Israel who daily achieve the unachievable
in the variety of their endeavors that spark
a modern nation.
For how long will the Chanukiah of
modern Israel remain lit, the daily celebra-
tion of its rededication after two millenia of
alien profanation? We hope forever.
Jewish Self-Criticism
In the spirit of Chanukah, the 30th
World Zionist Congress is meeting in Israel
now, and reports from Jerusalem show just
how unsettled Jews are today. Largely,
there is the uncomfortable feeling that the
Israeli operation in Lebanon has exposed
them to criticism from other nations of the
world for their seemingly uncritical support
of the Jewish state.
Whether or not Israel deserves
criticism for its campaign in Lebanon is a
question we have talked about in these
columns frequently in the past. Our single
consideration now is rather to observe with
growing embarrassment just how uncom-
fortable Jews are and that this discomfort
apparently lies like a pall over the agenda
of the World Zionist Congress in Jeru-
This is a pity. Predominantly, for
example, it gives strength of heart to the
Reagan Administration as it stand deter-
mined to persuade Congress not to increase
United States military and economic aid to
Israel beyond the $2.5 billion
We do not suggest that the President
and his aides would be persuaded very
much to change their mind were the atmos-
phere in Jerusalem different. It more
probably is true that nobody on Capitol
Hill really cares about the deliberations in

Jerusalem one way or the other. And that
there is not too much concern for just how
American Jews feel about the Administra-
tion's anti-Israel actions these days either.
But the fact is that the timidity of
heart Jews feel about Israel and Lebanon
will be used against them as a bottom line
argument when the Administration finds
need for one at some future time. On that
certainty, we can bet.
None of this means that Jews, like
anyone else, do not have the right to dis-
sent. Rabbi Alexander Schindler, of the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations,
said as much in Denver this week before a
Reform Jewish gathering. He argued that
Jews who dissent are not guilty of treason
either. There is no doubt that he is correct,
but that to have raised the question of
treason was an unfortunately excessive
example of zeal one which may bite all
our backs someday by those bent on mis-
chief against us.
But what it does mean is that in being
plus perfect in our examination of Israel in
Lebanon, both before and during the
WJCongress gathering in Jerusalem, we
may be setting a damper on the Chanukah
Menorah even before its first candle is lit
Friday night.

IT WOULD be hard to say,
what President Reagan reads, or
whether he reads. As in the case
of most Americans, the likelihood
is that he does not read at all,
perhaps even can not not in a
literate sense anyway. Neverthe-
less, his attitudes are straight out
of Ralph Waldo Emerson.
In Emerson's essay on "Self-
Reliance," he writes: "Society
everywhere is in conspiracy
against the manhood of every one
of its members. Society is a joint-
stock company, in which the
members agree, for the better
securing of his bread to each
shareholder, to surrender the
liberty and culture of the eater.
The virtue in most request is con-
formity. Self-reliance is its aver-
WHAT EMERSON says here
is that, if we attempt to guaran-
tee the greatest good of the
greatest number, a principle de-
fined by his British counterpart,
Jeremy Bent ham, then we are in
fact giving up our right to free-
dom of personal choice and ac-
This is a notion that artists
have always understood. That is
why they have traditionally
starved or feasted, depending
upon whether they were ignored
or adulated. There was never an
in-between for them, a pandering
to bourgeois principles in order to
get along until success struck
them. For the right to the free-
dom of personal choice, they have
always been willing to suffer the
consequences of failure.
Philosophers are in the same
tradition as artists. Both are in-
dependent of mind at the same
time that neither embarks on a
practical livelihood. They reject,
therefore, what Emerson des-
pised in "conformity." But while
artists have tended to uphold the
so-called majesty of the poverty
of their roots, even romanticizing
them as, say, Charles Dickens
did, this is what Emerson had to
say about poverty:
'THEN AGAIN, do not tell
me, as a good man did today, of
my obligation to put all poor men
in good situations. Are they my
poor? I tell thee, thou foolish
philanthropist, that I grudge the
dollar, the dime, the cent I give to
such men as do not belong to me
and to whom I do not belong.
There is a class of persons to
whom by all spiritual affinity I
am brought and sold; for them I
will go to prison if need be; but
your miscellaneous popular
charities; the education at college
of fools; the building of meeting-
houses to the vain end to which
many now stand, alms to sots,
and the thousand-fold Relief So-
cieties; though I confess with
shame I sometimes succumb and
give the dollar, it is a wicked dol-
lar, which by and by I shall have
manhood to withhold."
In all of his sentiments on this
subject, Emerson talks about
"manhood," in effect its compro-
mise, if he is drawn into con-
sideration of what Jean-Paul
Sartre, the 20th Century French
philosopher, called "the Other."
word with a capital-letter to indi-
cate the paramount importance
of "the Other." For Sartre, all
men are condemned to be free,
and therefore the freedom of each
of us depends upon our obligation
to struggle for the good of all.
Sartre's view of the relation-
ships among men is a contem-
porary one, governed by an
awareness of a far more inter-
dependent world than Emerson,
in his New England transcenden-
tal isolation, ever dreamed would
exist within little more than a
century after his death.
And yet it is Emerson's senti-
ments with which President Rea-
gan would agree, not Sartre's,
whether or not he has read either
philosopher before. The Presi-
dent's Thanksgiving Day mes-
sage to the nation is a case in
point, in which he urged that un-
employment compensation be
taxed in order to discourage what
Emerson called "alma to sots."
THIS IS little different from
Mr. Reagan's earlier statements
on unemployment in which he
pointed to the Help Wanted
columns of the nation's classified
advertising as an excellent source
for the job-hunter today.
There were, he advised at the
time, oodles of positions availa-
ble. All an unemployed person

NJ. (JTA) A resolu-
tion proposing action for
the immediate reduction in
the size and deployment of
the nuclear weapons arsen-
als of both the United Sates
and the Soviet Union was
adopted by the 1,200 dele-
gates and guests attending
the 84th anniversary na-
tional convention of the
Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of America
at the American Great
Gorge Hotel.
In proposing reversal of the
Reagan Administration policy of
stockpiling more nuclear weap-
ons and of escalating the produc-
tion of such weapons, the dele-
gates urged immediate
ratification by the two nuclear
superpowers by treaty agreement
to achieve such reductions.
the adoption of the resolution
made the UOJCA the first Amer-
ican Orthodox Jewish organiza-
tion to come out in public dis-
agreement with the Reagan Ad-
ministration's policy of nuclear
weapon expansion and deploy-
ment. The resolution stressed
that any such United States
action to reverse the nuclear arms
race must be bilaterial with the
Soviet Union.
The resolution urged the 1,000
member UOJCA congregations
to become involved in the issue of
control of nuclear weaponry. The
resolution urged rabbis of
member congregations to learn
more about "the possibilities of
peace as well as the potential for
nuclear war in our lifetime."
A UOJCA spokesperson added
that the UOJCA program in this
area will advocate working with
other national and local groups
which favor bilaterial reductions
in weaponry, and that the
UOJCA plans to join in commu-
nicating the concerns to Wash-
ington of the Jewish community
on this life and death issue.
that the UOJCA supports "the
ultimate goal of the SALT
(Strategic Arms Limitation
Talks) and START (Strategic
Arms Reduction Talks)" as steps
toward "a bilateral reduction in
the size and deployment of
nuclear weapons." The resolution
authorized the organization "to
testify in favor" of ratification of
a nuclear arms treaty.
Ambassador Moshe Arens of
Israel told the convention that
President Reagan's September 1
peace initiative, which calls for a
federation of the West Bank with
Jordan, resulted from a "differ-
ence in perception" between the
U.S. and Israel. Declaring that
Israel will not yield to pressure to
give up Judaea and Samaria,

tration "does not understand the

WJCongress In Jerusalem
Wrangling Launches Gathering
- The 30th World Zionist
Congress opened Tuesda\
night in Jerusalem as sche
duled. It is "an important
gathering of the entire Jew-
ish people," World
Organization Executive
Chairman Leon Dulzin an-
nounced here.
Wrangling over the number of
delegates from each Zionist party
following disputed elections in
Britain and France and the fail-
ure to bold elections in the United
States altogether are to be re-
solved by the Congress' Zionist
Court. A decision to this effect
was taken by the requisite 75
percent majority of the Zionist
General Council in a special ses-
sion here and this enabled the
Congress to convene as
of the Congress' organization
committee, said there would be
550 delegates representing po-
litical parties and an additional
200 delegates representing non-
party Jewish-Zionist organiza-
tions such as synagogual bodies
and Macabi.
Dulzin said he would submit a
detailed proposal to the Congress
for the "thorough reorganiza-
tion" of the WZO so that it will
henceforth be based on "a re-
gional basis not a party basis."
Another proposal Dulzin said he
intends to submit will be for the
immediate doubling from
8.000 to 15.000 of the number
of youth the WZO brings to Is-
rael for study periods each year.
The new target will include a
doubling of foreign Jewish uni-
versity students. Dulzin said. At
present there are some 2,000 in
Israeli universities. Dulzin said
he wanted to see the figure in-
crease to 4.000 by the 1963 aca-
demic year if possible, and con-
sultations with university deans
seemed to show this was possible.
THE KEY theme of the 30th
Congress is anti-Semitism, with
entire days devoted to discus-
sions on this topic in the wake of
what is widely seen as a revival of
crude anti-Semitism this year in
many and disparate countries.
Aliya will also be stressed, with
the Zionists spearheading a new
effort to open up the gates of the
Soviet Union again to Jewish
Dulzin took the opportunity of
a pre-Congress press conference
to reiterate his oft stated view
that "neshira" (Jews who opt to
go to countries other than Israel
once they emigrate from the So-
viet Union) had caused the clos-
ing of the gates this past year or
He warned that if the gates
were reopened which he be-
lieves would happen and the
dropout rate increased, the gates
would again be closed. "Since the
State of Israel came into being
there are no more Jewish refu-
gees." Dulzin said by way of re-
jecting the view among some
American Jewish leaders that
Soviet Jewish emigrants are
refugees. Soviet Jewish emi-
grant: arc net refuge- .-
they have visas to go to Israel
and they ought therefi. e to go
there. Dulzin asserted.
HE SAID frankly he did not
envisage massive aliya from the
West but nevertheless believed
that the rate of 10.000 annually
over the past decade could cer-
tainly be "doubled and tripled."
He called as he has so often in
the past for a unified aliya ab
sorption system operated jointly
by the government and the WZO.
and said that the dearth of rental
housing in Israel was one key ob-
stacle to immigration from the
Dublin said he discerned a new
interest in Zionism among Is-
rael's youth, thanks in large
measure to the work of the Zion-
ist Council in Israel in the schools
and in the youth movements.

One of the main points of Pres-
ident Reagan's Middle East

1, was a call on Israel to immedi-
ately freeze settlement activity in
the occupied territories. That was
promptly rejected by Premier
Menachem Begin.

what Ralph Waldo Emerson
would think of Mr. Reagan's
views of self-reliance were he here
to witness it today. After all,
characteristic of Emerson's life
was growth. It was in search of
growth that Emerson traveled all
the way across the Atlantic to
visit the German poet and
philospher, Goethe.
Although like Emerson,
Goethe too was an elitist, his
work suggests that he would not
in the end agree with Emerson's
belief that one's "manhood" is
compromised by concern for the
poor, a view that may well have
affected Emerson for the cosmo-
politan better.
Perhaps then there is a more
apt parallel for President Reagan
in another "artist" who is also
gone from today's scene, but
whom he knew personally and
well. When John Wayne, with
blazing guns in his hands, would
give the emergency command to
"circle the wagons," he was in ef-
fect playing the role of self-reli-
ance against the "Injun" guerril-
las of his day.
ARE THEY my poor?, he asks
with Emerson in each of those
films he made, shooting his way
out of the menacing cries of the
victims of poverty and persecu-
tion. For their part, the attacking
"Injuns" see the wagon trains as
nothing less than invaders, and
they engage in battle in the name
of political, social and economic
justice. In prevailing against the
"Injuns," is Wayne not also
shooting his way out of the re-
sponsibility for the needs of
"sots" and "fools"?
Mr. Reagan and John Wayne
were contemporaries and col-
leagues. They were, as many
Americans still are, bridges be-
tween the present and our na-
tional past, when manifest des-
tiny depended upon Emersonian
self-reliance, a philosophical prin-
ciple also espoused by Teddy
Roosevelt as late as the first
decade of the 20th Century.
In this sense, Mr. Reagan's
economic realities are not as dis-
tant as one might prefer to be-
lieve. But in matters of the oast.
how far past is not the issue, just
as in matter of death how long
dead (except for the first brief
moments of death) is largely, say,
a bureaucratic or an academic
WHEN THE Wayne-Rea-
ganites refuse to grow, what does
that say of them? It is fruitless
for Mr. Reagan to believe he can
resurrect the pre-FDRooseveltian
order. No matter how much he
believes that things ought to De
the way they once were, for
example, transcendental New
England or the Far West of John
Wayne, the practicalities of Real-
politik suggest they are not that
way anymore.
This retrograde streak in the
elitism of Mr. Reagan, an aristo-
cratic manner to which he was
not born, merely offends other
nations and fires a profound dis-
pleasure in our own.
Whether it is rarified Emerson
or crude Reagan one considers,
the question of self-reliance in
1982 is the stuff of which future
revolutions are right now being

Reagan Urged
Respond to Growing U.S. Joblessness
American Jewish Commit-
tee, responding to the
announcement that unem-
ployment had hit a record
10.8 per cent, is calling on
the Administration to make
the fight against unem-
ployment its highest
priority, and to combat
joblessness by setting up
"comprehensive jobs
programs that would create
enought jobs to reach the
groups most in need."
Noting that more than 11
million Americans are now out of
work, and that "women and
minorities struggling to develop
a basic level of economic
security" are the chief victims of
unemployment, Maynard I.
Wishner, AJC national president,
declared that "until the private
sector provides sufficient job op-
portunities for those seeking
work, it is the government's duty
to 'promote the general welfare'
by direct action on the jobs

"The strength of a democratic
society." continued Mr. Wishner,
"can be measured by its ability to
ensure social justice by caring for
those who are disadvantaged.
poor, and in distress. Today, the
number of those in distress has
reached epidemic proportions as
our economy falters and whole
communities have been
decimated .
"Jews, like many others, have
been affected by these develop-
ments, especially Jews in small
businesses or the helping profes-
sions teachers, social workers,
counselors, etc .
"In addition, the groups
hardest hit by unemployment are
those who gained opportunities
for equality only recently
women and minorities But
as the last hired, they are also the
first laid off."
"THESE COSTS," he con
tinued, "are to be measured in
broken families, brokwi hearts,
and broken hopes. They are re-
flected in heightened community
tensions and intergroup conflicts,
and they lead to loss of con-
fidence in our democratic system.
America cannot afford these
Urging that the nation adopt
"policies that could simultane-
ously put people to work, provide
needed improvements for our
communities. and stimulate
economic recovery." Mr. Wishner
conceded that "there could be
proper questions raised about
how to pay for massive jobs
programs." However, be said,
"properly designed and imple-
mented, job programs could soon
start paying for themselves as
the economy strengthened."
"A comprehensive attack on
joblessness." he continued,
"must provide for the many
skilled Americans who can do
much to rebuild the American in-
frastructure. It must provide
first opportunties for many es-
pecially minority youth who
have never been given the op-
portunity to enter the labor torce.
It must provide opportunities for
women whose belated entry into
the labor force is now

declared Mr. Wishn*" "Vomhine
to make a major attack lessness the highest priority for
our nation. We rail upon the
President and the Congress to
put aside partisanship and
ideology and to work together to
put America and Americans back
to work."
Wishner announced that state-
ments similar to AJC's were
being considered and endorsed by
a wide range of national organiz-
ations under the sponsorship of

D'Amato Says He Pushes
Bigger Grant to Israel
Alfonse D'Amato (R..N.Y.)
announced here that his amend-
ment to restore $12 million to the
American Schools and Hospitals
Abroad program, which provides
aid in 34 countries including
Israel, has been accepted by the
Senate Foreign Operations Sub-
committee and is expected to be
taken up by the full Senate next
week. The program provides
financial assistance to American
sponsored hospitals and schools
and these in turn provide educa-
tion, health care and vocational
training services.
D'Amato also told a Zionist
Organization of America
Brandeis Award Banquet here
that the Senate subcommittee
also recommended that a greater
chunk of the aid during fiscal
year 1983 be in the form of a
grant rather than a loan, as was
the case in fiscal 1982.
THE SENATOR told the 300
banquet guests that during fiscal
year 1982. assistance totaled SI.4
billion of which $550 million was
in the form of a direct grant to
Israel. "The President had re-
quested a funding level of $1.7
billion for similar assistance
during fiscal year '83," D'Amato
said. "According to the Presi-
dent's proposal, $1.2 billion
would have been in the form of a
10% Discount With This Coupon

loan while the remaining $5
million would have been provided
through grants."
The recommendation by the
Senate subcommittee "stipulates
that $850 million be provided in
the form of a loan and an addi-
tional $850 million will serve as a
grant," the Senator said. "There-
fore. Israel will benefit from an
additional $350 million in grants
according to the subcommittee's
recommendation. This will result
in a 21 percent increase in
military assistance to Israel."
In addition, during fiscal year
1982. non-military and economic
support to Israel totaled $785
million and the Administration
requested continued funding at
that level for fiscal year 1983.
D'Amato said. But the Senate
subcommittee also recommended
an increase of economic support
programs to Israel at the full
authorization of $910 million, he
dent, said that Israel's friends in
Washington and in local com-
munities will have to work harder
and more skillfully "to balance
the misinformation and the lack
of information about Israel" and
to counter "unprecedented funds

He stated that there is no
reason for Jews to feel ashamed
of Israel and its leaders. "Let us
not gnaw away at it foundations,
let us not undermine its morale,
let us not malign its leaders,"
Novick declared. "There is no
reason no reason whatsoever
for Jews to sit 'shiva' for
Israel's soul. Neither the Jewish
State nor the Jewish leaders have
lost their souls."
On the contrary, he said, it is
"the soul of the world that is
mutilated when it continues to
encourage the PLO to believe
jthat it has a future" by such
1 actions as Pope John Paul II em-
bracing PLO Chief Yaair Arafat.

"WHAT WE are questioning
is an unusual lobbying effort that
ultimately resulted in approval of

plained Will Maslow, general
counsel of the American Jewish
Congress, who is directing the
campaign. "It now appears that
the AWACS sale was saved from
Senate defeat by massive, unpre-
cedented corporate lobbying."
He contended that many of the
corporations involved had no
stake in the sale of the AWACS
or had no business links to Saudi
Arabia. They involved them-
selves in the lobbying, he ex-
plained, "because they were led
to believe by the Administration

Maslow said corporate efforts

Israel at Fault
State Dep't. Explains Stalled Talks
(JTA) Deputy Secretary
of State Kenneth Dam has
blamed Israel's insistence
on Jerusalem as one of the
sites for the Israeli-Leba-
nese talks for the delay in
beginning negotiations on
the withdrawal of foreign
troops from Lebanon.
"The current Israeli position is
unacceptable to the Lebanese
government,'' Dam told the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee. "The success and the
stability of that government de-
pends on the support of those
within Lebanon and throughout
the Arab world for whom the
status of Jerusalem remains a
critical issue.
"The United States acknowl-
edges the importance of Jeru-
salem to Israel and to all Arab
states. But insistence on a Jeru-
salem venue should not be made
an obstacle to the start of talks
on the withdrawal of external
forces from Lebanon."
DAM. in testifying before the
committee on the situation in
Lebanon, seemed to go further
than the State Department's offi-
rial statement in which it said it
was not taking sides on the Jeru-
Bl venue issue. Dam. who was
icting Secretary of Suit.- whils
eorge Shultz is out of the court-
acoompanying President
in Latin America, has
i ly on the Lebanese
In his testimony. Dam said
Bl tin Start of Israeli-Lebanese
ilks could provide the stimu-
lus'' for talks to begin between
Lebanon and Syria and between
Lebanon and the Paelstine
Liberation Organization for the
emoval of their forces.
"The continued occupation of
Lebanon by foreign forces
forces that imperil Lebanese
overeignty and threaten Israeli
ecurity is dangerous and

ons rausi oegin.
ONCE THF. talks began. Dam
I he doubted it would take
h time for arrangements for
adrawai. and he believed it
still possible to accomplish
this bj he end of the year as the
Administration had hoped. He
said the U.S. has had high level
talks with Syria and is convinced
that Syria will withdraw its
troops because it wants Israel to
withdraw its troops from Leba-
Dam said the PLO forces that
are protected by the Syrian
troops would also leave^ There
might be some delay with other
PLO forces, since arrangements
for finding them a new country to
go to. such as was done for the
PLO in Beirut, would have to be
made. Dam said.
He conceded that some PLO
fighters" who evacuated Beirut
have infiltrated back into the
Bekaa valley. But he put the
figure at hundreds not the
thousands Israel claims.
DAM NOTED that once there
is a withdrawal, the multina-
tional force (MNF) now in Beirut
may have to be expanded to fill
the "vacum" that mav be created
before the Lebanese army could
take full control of security. He
said this vacum "could endanger
Lebanese sovereignty and Israeli
Lebanon asked for an increase
of the MNF, and Dam admitted
that the U.S. was asked to double
its Marine contingent to about
2,400 men. But he stressed that
no decision would be made until
agreements have been reached on
the withdrawal of foreign forces.
Sen. Charles Percy (R. 111.), the
Committee's chairman, and other
Committee members stressed the
need for the Administration to
closely consult Congress on the
use of U.S. troops in Lebanon.
Percy praised the democratic
manner in which Israel was con-
ducting the investigation into the
Beirut massacres keeping the
public informed of the evidence.
HE ASKED Dam if he could
say anything about the secret in-
vestigation the Lebanese Attor-
ney General was conducting into
the massacres. Dam couldn't but
said, he was assured it was as"
"serious" as that investigation
being conducted by Israel. He
stressed that the U.S. at this
time must show "confidence" in
the new Lebanese government
"in every way."
Dam said that while the Leba-
nese situation and Reagan's Mid-
easi peace initiative wen belli*
pursued by the Administration
by "separate tracks, "there was a
relationship between them. That
relationship is symbolized by the
President's appointment of Am-
bassador Philip Habib as his spe-
cial representative with a new
mandate involving Lebanon and
the broader peace process.
Dam insisted that progress
was being made on the peace
initiative. He said King Hussein
of Jordan in his public state-
ments has been "more forthcom-
ing," although he has not taken
"the final step" on agreeing to
represent the Palestinians in the
autonomy negotiations. Dam
noted that "if King Hussein
comes to the table, we are confi-
dent that the Israeli government
will not refuse to negotiate."
MEANWHILE, it was re-
ported today Amman, Jordan
that the PLO has agreed to par-
ticipate in a commission with
Jordan to draw up proposals for
Middle East peace talks which
will be presented to Reagan when
Hussein meets with him in
Washington Dec. 21.
Reportedly, the commission
will propose a Jordanian-Pales-
itnian delegation for the negotia-
tions which will include such
Palestinians as the ousted

Nissim is relaxed, surrounded
by his family of four children and
the two teenagers from problem
families they are adopting. "No, I
don't think I was really changed
by the war. I'm the same."
He laughs when Eti says, "But
you have changed." She explains.
"His family means even more to
him now. I feel we're all more
deeply in his heart. I feel life
means more to him now."
Life also means a great deal
more to 20-year-old Yoram
Benita who is happily and
healthily back at work in the
apple orchards. Four months ago
he wondered if he'd ever see those
orchards again.
One of the first soldiers to
enter the PLO-infested refugee
camp of Rashidiya, outside of
Tyre, Yoram was shot in the
shoulder by a boy no more than
14 years old during house-to-
house combat. "I saw him and
then I was hit. Naturally, by in-
stinct, I shot back, but I don't
know what happened to him. We
were all shocked seeing kids like
that ready to fire their Bazookas
at us. It was something we never
imagined or could have expected.
Who would think of anyone using
kids that way?"
After dragging himself to
safety, he was jolted by bullets
hitting the ground around his
legs while he was attempting to
apply first aid to his arm.
Having no other option, he
entered a building and suprised
two terrorists. Fortunately, he
was able to hold them off until
two of his fellow soldiers arrived.
He was flown immediately to
Rambam Hospital in Haifa.
Yoram pauses. He is having
difficulty recounting the agony of
those days. Unlike Nissim, it was
his first actual experience in
battle, his first confrontation
with the horrors of war. It was
filled with all the tension of hav-
ing to make split-second
decisions that trembled between
life and death: especially how to
avoid harming civilians.
"I know it was on everyone's
minds. None of us wanted to be
responsible for hurting innocent
women and children."
Now that it's finished, Yoram
is pursuing his previously-made
plans: a year off "to see the
world," and then back home, "a
safe home," he emphasizes. Yes,
he reflects, his attitude towards
life has changed.
"I guess I want to live more
I realize how short life can be. It's
like a little space, and I want to
enjoy experiencing every bit of

His subsequent efforts to re-
establish a "USSR-Israel Friend-

Appeal of
Camp Guard
The U.S. Supreme Court declined

concentration camp guard who
was tripped of his American citi-
zenship in 1981 because he lied
about his Nazi past when he ob-

Demjanjuk have been tentatively
set for February 10,1983, exactly
two years to the day after his de-

Demjanjuk, now 62, was iden-
tified by witnesses as a guard at
the Treblinka and Sobibor con-
centration camps in Poland in
1942-43, where some 900,000
Jews and others were killed.
Some of the witnesses, including
death camp survivors now living
in Germany, Israel and Uruguay,
pointed out the defendant as the
guard known as "Ivan the
Terrible" because he tortured
thousands of prisoners and
herded them into the gas cham-
Demjanjuk denied the charges
and maintained he had been a
German prisoner of war at the
time. But Federal Judge Frank
Rattisti ruled on June 23, 1981
that his citizenship be "revoked,
vacated and cancelled" on
grounds that Demjanjuk falsified
his background when he applied
for naturalization in 1958. Dem-
janjuk, an employee of the Ford
Motor Co., had lived in the
Cleveland area since 1952.
Prisoner of Conscience Anatoly
Sharansky, has been hospitalized
in Moscow as a result of extreme
emotional etrOM
ACCORDING to the Con

due to concern about her son who

authorities of his correspondence

ble by prison authorities since
Sharansky began his fast, 65
days ago.
Mrs. Milgrom and her other
son. Leonid, were scheduled to
depart for Chistnpol on Nov. 19.
The sudden collapse caused the
75-year-old woman to postpone

l^id deliberately left unra-
ted pending the five-year au-
omy period.
[Another symbol of the change
the worse: The Administra-
i's "sudden and unjustified"
ccupation with the settle-
its issue. The Israeli govern-
t quarters contended that
had been no quickening of
pace of West Bank settle-
its of late that could have
gered the spate of American
ucism and condemnation.

attitude was the U.S. Ad-

Public American references to
this is- as a matter of a "loyal-
ty oath" were plainly tendentious
and were intended, the Israeli
quarters claimed, to "hint
towards the PLO."
In fact, the quarters continued,
the thrust of American policy,
though ostensibly focused to-
wards Jordan's King Hussein,
was actually directed towards
wooing the PLO because the
Americans knew full well that
Hussein could not move without
PLO approbation.
In this connection, the quar-
ters noted critically a media
report to the effect that U.S.
special envoy Philip Habib had
spoken of the need for an Israel-
Egypt-Jordan-U.S.-PLO nego-
tiation. Washington, the quarters
said, had "returned to Arafat the
key to Mideast negotiation which
operation Peace for Galilee
deprived him of."
OBSERVERS here noted that
highly placed U.S. government
sources have explained that Rea-
gan administration policy has
been consistent. There has been
no sudden change: Just a readi-
ness now to dwell on contro-
versial issues, a readiness which
did not exist to such an extent
before the completion of the Sinai
withdrawal earlier this year.
These U.S. sources said the
Administration had planned to
get into the nitty-gritty of the
Palestinian autonomy issues
after the Sinai withdrawal was
completed but the Lebanon
war had put those plans out of
joint. The basic intention,
however, remained.
Israeli officials, cleaving to
their downbeat analysis, said it
"does not bode well" for the U.S.-
Israel relationship. The planned
summit talks, therefore, between
Reagan and Premier Menachem
Begin early next year would be
extremely important.
Meanwhile, the Cabinet has
approved instructions to Ambas-
sador Moshe Arens in Washing-
ton to lobby intensively both
with Congress and with the Ad-
ministration in favor of the aid
increases recommended by the

Right-Wing Lebanese Says
Treaty With Israel Should Be Signed
Ettienne Sacre, leader of
the ultra-rightwing
"Guardians of the Cedars"
movement in Lebanon,
declared here that Lebanon
should not only sign a
formal peace treaty with
Israel but also a treaty of
mutual defense, and fully
backed Israel's terms for
withdrawing its forces from
Sacre, a Maronite Christian
also known as Abu Arz, demand-
ed that all Palestinians be forced
to leave Lebanon and claimed
that the Syrians and the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion "are now already coming
back to Beirut."
He refused to condemn the
massacre of Palestinians in the
Shatila and Sabra refugee camps
in west Beirut last September,
calling the killings a Lebanese
reaction to "eight years of bloody
fighting and killings" which
culminated in the assassination
of Lebanon's President-Elect
Bashir Gemayel, leader of the
Christian Phalangists.
DURING HIS two-day visit to
Israel, Sacre and his associates
were received by Premier
Menachem Begin and met with
officials of the Foreign Ministry
and members of the Knesset
Foreign Affairs Committee.
The far-right movement he
heads was founded in 1973 as a
military and political force aimed
at ousting all foreigners from
Lebanon. The movement is de-
scribed as a small, tightly knit
unit among the various Christian
militias of which Gemayel's
Phalangists are the major force.
Sacre attacked Lebanon's in-
cumbent Moslem Prime Minister,
Shafik A-Wazzan, as a member of
the "old guard of corrupt
politicians" and denounced him
for making anti-Israel state-
ments. He endorsed the Israeli
position that negotiations with
Lebanon on the withdrawal of
foreign forces should take place
"on a very high level, in Beirut
and in Jerusalem, leading not
only toward peace but toward a
defense treaty."
SACRE AGREED with Israel
that the withdrawal of the PLO
and the Syrian army should
precede withdrawal by Israeli
forces. "Otherwise the Syrians
and the PLO will come back to
Beirut, and they are now already
coming back to Beirut."
He said he would like to see all
Palestinians out of Lebanon be-
cause "They abused Lebanese
hospitality and posed a
demographic problem for the
(country. Let them go to the Arab
countries. They are rich and
empty," Sacre said.
In other developments,
Lebanese Druze leader Walid
Jumblatt narrowly escaped an
assassination attempt when a
bomb exploded close to the car he
was driving in west Beirut.

Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, cur-
rently visiting New Delhi, called

for the immediate withdrawal of
Israeli forces from Lebanon and
warned Israel not to try to
achieve a peace treaty with
Lebanon while its troops occupy
a large part of that country.
Speaking at an official dinner
in the Indian capital, Mubarak
said the Palestinian problem was

El Al Cargo Planes Find Problems
As They Land in Airports
impending liquidation of El Al
has created problems for the
airline's cargo service, the only
branch still operating. One cargo
jet was held up for debt payment
at Frankfurt airport, and another
was delayed at Cairo airport.
Both were released after the
Israeli government assured El Al
creditors that it assumes full re-
sponsibility for payments due.
The aircraft which landed a
cargo of agricultural produce at
Frankfurt was detained by the
authorities against some
$240,000 owed by El Al to the
airport. Local officials said the
plane would not usually be held
for such a relatively small debt,-
except for the uncertainly of El
Al's future.
cargo plane which brought cows
from Amsterdam to Cairo was
unable to take off because the
European company that supplies
its fuel demanded immediate
payment in cash. The Transport
Ministry in Jerusalem contacted
the European head office of the
fuel supplier to guarantee
Ministry officials said they
were trying to make suitable ar-
rangements at Amsterdam and
New York to avoid delays when
El Al planes land there .

Hatfield Confirms Reagan's
Anti-Israel Aid Knife
fly JTA Report
Hatfield (R., Ore), chairman of
the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee, confirms that the Reagan
Administration has urged his
committee to reject the S475
million his subcommittee has
added onto the Administration's
request for Israel. He said that
Philip Habib. the Administra-
tions s special Mideast envoy,
had called him from Europe, and
National Security Advisor
William Clark had asked him at

program, and who had also
opposed the. additional aid. said
he agreed to the Administration's
request not to have a vote on the
Israeli aid. The Isratii allocation
was passed as part of the full
foreign aid bill which was
adopted by voice vote.
Hatfield noted that the Senate
wanted to finish the appropria-
tions procedure even though the
House has no appropriations bill
yet and so the Israeli aid issue
will not come up this year. He
also said that the additional aid
to Israel was a reflection of the
"strong support for Israel in the

Teller in Israel To
Advise on Nuke Reactor
TEL AVIV Dr. Edward
Teller, the "Father of the
Hydrogen Bomb," has arrived in
Israel on his 12th visit to this
country, to advise Prof. Yuval
Ne'eman. Minister for Science
and Development, on plans for
construction of a nuclear power
Teller said he thought Israel
has the proper know-how for con-
struction of an atomic power
plant but requires some equip-
ment and materials from abroad.
Taken on a tour of the West
Bank by his host, who plans to
bring as much science-based
industries to the occupied areas
to support as large a Jewish pop-
ulation as possible. Teller said he
fully supported the idea of
massive Jewish settlement in
Judaea and Samaria, with scores
of Jewish settlements dotted
about the Arab areas.

TEL AVIV Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon left last
weekend for a brief visit to the
U.S. and Honduras. In the U.S.,
Sharon will be addressing Israel
Bond audiences and aides said no
arrangements had been made for
him to meet with Reagan Admin-
istration officials.
His three-day visit to Hon-
duras is as guest of that coun-

Replying to questions at Ben

JERUSALEM About 1.200
Arab students at Bethlehem Uni-

protest orders by the civil admin-

The orders were issued last
Friday to four American and four
British instructors who refused
to sign a commitment not to "aid

zation or any other hostile
organization." The pledge is a re-

Civil Servants Go
On Strike in Israel
Ministry was virtually deserted
Monday as more than 1,000 dip-

members observed a 24-hour
strike in a dispute over wages
and working conditions. A two-
day general strike by some
400.000 civil servants in all gov-
ernment departments began
Tuesday following the collapse of
wage negotiations between the
Treasury and Histadrut.
Civilian employees of the
Defense Ministry observed a non-
day strike Sunday, the first to hit
Israel's defense establishment
since the State was founded.
Only Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and Director General
David Kimche were at their
offices in the Foreign Ministry
today. Everyone else stayed
home, according to staff commit-
tee activists who toured the
premises the morning and
reported with grim satisfaction
that "the place is desolate."

Court Puts El Al Airline
Into Official Liquidation
TEL AVIV (JTA) The El Al national
was officially put into liquidation Sunday,
the Jerusalem District Court agreed to an appeal bvl
shareholders and appointed Amram Blum, the
ministrator general and official receiver, as teron
receiver for the airline. The Histadrut and the El
employees committees have therefore lost all their
of fights to prevent the El Al windup.
BLUM IS is expected to try to get part of the i
back into the air again, believing that an operatingl.
will be a more attractive buy for possible investors if I
decided to sell the airline to private individuals or grou
Assisted by Rafi Har-Lev, a former El Al
president, Blum is expected to try and operate someofj
more profitable lines while keeping others closed.

return to work at management request or instr
unless all employees are rehired or suitable arrange
made for those wishing to leave the company. He
