Weinberger Agrees UJS. Should Have
Strong Alliance With Israel
)efense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger affirmed that
the U.S. has and should
lave a strong alliance with
llsrael because "we are both
very helpful to each other."
jBut he refused to say, in an
I Israel Radio interview from
Washington whether the
J.S. will now sign a
[memorandum of strategic
[cooperation with Israel.
Asked about a strategic accord
I long sought by Israel, Wein-
berger replied, "I think the main
effort now ought to be on trying
to get the President's peace ini-
tiative adopted and the first step
of that is to get Lebanon on its
[{get as a strong sovereign nation
I with all foreign forces removed."
U.S. will not now lift the freeze on
| delivery of 75 F-16 jet fighters to
! Israel imposed when Israel in-
vaded Lebanon last June. Wein-
berger said there has been no
change as yet, and he knew of no
contemplated change with re-
spect to the deliveries.
He also observed that U.S. aid
to Israel would be better served
in other ways than by helping Is-
rael build its La vie fighter plane
"which would contribute little to
Israel's air power, considering
the planes it already possesses."
The U.S. defense chief made
the point that "America needs
several friends in the Middle
East, and I think Israel needs
several friends in the Middle East
so that we should broaden these
relationships and alliances."
He also told Israel Radio that
he got along well with former De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon and
with Sharon's successor, Moshe
Arens, who was the Israeli Am-
bassador to Washington before
he was named Defense Minister
last month. He indicated he
would like to maintain telephone
contact with Arens to avoid mis-
Swedens Press Case Of
Wallenberg With Soviets
The Swedish government
has again taken up with the
Soviet Union the case of
lissing diplomat Raoul
Wallenberg, it was learned
Swedish sources say it was
raised firmly" during a recent
visit to Moscow by Pierre
Schorri, the chief undersecretary
at the Swedish Foreign Office.
Hut he elicited no change in the
Soviet claim that Wallenberg,
who rescued thousands of Jews in
wartime Hungary, had perished
. in a Soviet jail two years after the
Sweden has massive evidence
that Wallenberg, who would now
be 70 years old, was alive many
years -after the date when
Moscow says he died of a heart
attack in the Lubyanka Prison.
THIS IS the first time the case
has been raised officially with the
Soviet Union since Yuri Andro-
pov, former head of the KGB,
succeeded the late Leonid
Brezhnev as chairman of the
Soviet Communist Party. It is
also the first official Swedish
move on the case since Olof
l'alme's Social Democratic Party
took office in Stockholm last

Campaign Update
1983 Campaign Tops $700,000
Les Barnett, Chairman of the
1983 Tampa Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal has
reported that the annual cam-
paign has reached the $700,000
mark. The Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign funds local,
national and overseas agencies to.
help meet Jewish needs at home
and abroad.
The $700,000 includes over
$100,000 for the Israel Special
Fund and represents a 38 percent
overall increase for the same
contributors to the 1982 cam-
paign. Barnett cautioned
however, that unless the com-
munity reaches the goal of
$1,200,000 for the regular
campaign, the Tampa Jewish
Federation will not be able to
fully meet its obligations to our
local agencies and to the United
Jewish Appeal regular fund.
"We are redoubling our efforts
throughout the month of March
as we participate in a national
program entitled March for
Israel: A National
Mobilization," Barnett stated.
The "March for Israel" program
encompasses a time period from
I'urim to Passover, a critical 37
days devoted to help the people
of Israel meet the cost of human-
support programs as well as
those right here in the Tampa
community who benefit from our
programs and services.
Programs underway during the
month of March include the
completion of 100 percent par-
ticipation from leadership and
board members of beneficiary
agencies, a concentrated effort
with new prospects, and in-
volvement of national United
Jewish Appeal leadership with
key prospects in Tampa.
Fulfillment or denial of real
human needs affecting the
lives of thousands of people
depend on our ability to ef-
fectively raise the levels of giving
in the 1983 Campaign." Barnett

lil>erty still enjoyed by many
Nazi war criminals.
The Committee noted that
Wallenberg was only a few
months older than Klaus Barbie,
the notorious Nazi "butcher of
Lyon" recently deported from
Bolivia to stand trial in France,
and that he was still too young to
be given up for dead.
IN ANOTHER development,
it was disclosed here that the
Israel government is planning to
issue a postage,' stamp bearing
Wallenberg's poHrait. The news
was announced f>y Kay Mayer, a
Danish Jew, who escaped to
Sweden in 1^43 and whom
Wallenberg helped and be-
friended before leaving for
Hungary on his mission of mercy.
In Britain, the campaign for
Wallenberg is currently focussing
on travelling exhibitions devoted
to his exploits in Hungary, where
he saved up to 100,000 Jews from
the death camps.
The exhibition, which opened
last October, has been seen by
tens of thousands of people in
London and the Midlands and
will shortly feature at a major
international arts festival in

catapulted to international atten-
tion three years ago when

Israel called on U.S. President
Carter to raise it at his Vienna

Department has distanced
itself from former President
Carter's meeting with two
officials of the Palestine

Hughes said that Carter, "as a
private citizen," can meet with
whomever he wants. He said that

Charges 'Ridiculous
West German Candidate Vogel Is Said
To Have Been Hitler Youth Member
Germany's election campaign has
generated new heat over allega-
tions that Hans-Jochen Vogel,
the opposition Social Democratic
Party's (SPD) candidate for
Chancellor, who lost his bid
Sunday, was an ardent Nazi
when he was a member of the
Hitler Jugend, the Nazi youth
movement, during World War II.
Most political observers
dismiss the charges as without
serious consequences, although a
spokesman for Vogel promptly
denied them. But the injection of
that issue into the campaign
triggered public discussion of the
political involvement of West
Germany's current leaders dur-
ing the Nazi era. Vogel, born in
1926, was a member of the Hitler
Jugend between 1941-43, after
which he served as a soldier in the
The weekly Bild Am Sonntag
reported that another former
Hitler Jugend member, Ernst
Holler, charged at an election
campaign meeting that Vogel
would intimidate hie comrades in
the youth movement and preach-
ed to them about loyalty to the
Fuehrer. >
Holler, a veterinarian, is an
active member of the Christian
Socialist Union (CSU), the
Bavarian sister party of the
ruling Christian Democratic
Union (CDU). He made his
charges against Vogel at a CSU
party rally. He claimed that
Vogel once had him reduced in
rank in the Hitler Jugend and
stated in writing that he was un-
suitable to participate in building
up National Socialism.
Vogel's brother, Bernhard
Vogel, a member of the CDU and
Prime Minister of Rhineland-
Palistinate, said it was ridiculous
to claim Hans-Jochen Vogel was
a Nazi loyalist on the basis of an
incident 40 years ago when his
brother was only 16.

First International Confj
On Soviet Jewry Due
Robert Merrill Guest Artist for
14th Annual Jewish Music Festival
JERUSALEM - first international Conference on
Soviet Jewry to be held in Jeru-
salem. Opening here Mar. 15,
will be attended by delegates
from 31 countries around the
world, it was announced by
Avraham Herman, president of
the Israel Public Council for So-
viet Jewry at a press conference
He noted that the two previous
world conferences on Soviet Jew-
ry, held in Brussels in 1971 and
1976, were followed by a marked
rise in Jewish emigration from
the Soviet Union and it is hoped
that similar results will follow the
third conference. But Harman
made it clear that Soviet emigra-
tion policy will have to change
.He said the purpose of the con-
ference is to demonstrate that
the plight of Soviet Jews is an in-
ternational issue that will not be
"From the cutdown of emigra-
tion from the Soviet Union of
Jews from 51,000 in 1979 to a
paltry few thousand in 1982, it
seems the Russians think that if
they continue with this policy,
the problem will get easier and
that people will forget it." Har-
man said. "People are coming to
Jerusalem from 31 countries in
order to demonstrate to them
(the Soviets) that people will not
According to Harman, present
estimate is that there are 2.5 mil-
lion Jews in the USSR of which
number 400,000 have requested
and received invitations from
relatives in Israel so that they
can begin the emigration process.
But they haVe not been granted
exit visas. About 7,000 of these
Jews are known to be refuseniks,
meaning Jews who have applied
for visas but have been denied
Harman said, "The only way
this matter may be put to rest is
for the Soviet Union to honor its
obligations. It is obliged under
the Helsinki Final Act to give
Jews the right of free movement;
to give them the right to be re-
united with their families; to give
them the right to cultivate their
culture and their language,"
Harman said.
The conference will be attended
by, among others Premier Mena-
chem Begin; Simone Veil of
France, former President of the
Parliament of Europe; former
Jewish prisoners in the Soviet
Union; former refuseniks, rela-
tives of refuseniks and Soviet
Jewry activists.

United States, conducted by such
greats as Leonard Bernstein,
Fritz Reiner, George Solti,
Leopold Stokowski, Eugene
Ormandy, and of course, Arturo
Toscanini. He has been acclaimed

ventured successfully into
another medium.

Johnny Carson Show, the Mike
Douglas Show and the Merv
Griffin Show, to name a few.
Merrill has also recorded shows

The American Israel Public
Affairs Committee, the well
known "Israeli Lobby" in
Washington, will hold a Florida
state-wide conference on political
action Sunday, Mar. 20 at the
Sheraton World Hotel in
Orlando. AIPAC is staffed and
supported by members of the
American Jewish community,
but its most effective weapon is
its membership; lay people
around the country who lobby
senators and congressmen on
behalf of Israel. The purpose of
this conference is to offer a
workshop to the members of the
Jewish community of Florida
who want to help with this vital
lobbying effort.
The program will begin
Sunday morning with an address
by Senator Lawton Chiles,
ranking Democrat on the budget
committee, who will speak on the
perspective of foreign aid in the
current U.S. budget. In the last
fiscal year, Congress increased
aid to Israel from $2.2 billion to
S2.5 billion. The keynote speaker
at lunch will be Congressman
Jack Kemp, a long time
supporter of Israel, and one of the
primary movers in Congress for
increased aid to Israel.
The actual workshop will
consist of three panels, which will
be repeated three times enabling
all attendees to the conference to
participate in each workshop.
The first panel will discuss "Nuts
and Bolts of Political Action."
The panelists are John Mica,
chief aide to Senator Paula
Hawkins and Don Lefton,
chairman of the Florida
Congressional Committee a
political action committee
supported by members of the
Jewish community of southern
Florida. The second panel will
discuss techniques of "lobbying"
on behalf of Israel. The panelists
are former Florida Senator
Richard Stone and Michael
Gayle, deputy special assistant
to President Reagan as liaison to
the United States Jewish
community. The final panel-will
review "Israel and American
Jewry." The panelists are Tom
Dine, director of AIPAC, and
Mort Silberman, president of

Presidents Who've Struck Out
We live in a unique time. Three ex-
Presidents walk among us. This may be a
tribute to medical science, which regularly
makes such progress in the field of aging
that all our life expectancies seem on the
increase. But not all of us are ex-Presi-
dents. When they live longer, they can con-
tinue to bring their collective wisdom to the
nation, gleaned by their broad experience,
even after they have left office.
Or they can ist there like exhausted
ducks, some of them symbolic of disgrace
or just plain repudiation, contaminating
the atmosphere of America's political reali-
Unfortunately for us, these days there
seems to be more of the latter than the
former from ex-Presidents Nixon, Ford and
Carter. Whether it be the greed and
rapaciousness for power that characterized
at least two of them, or the unrelenting
foot-in-mouth disease that continues to af-
flict the last of them, what we experience in
our surviving ex-Presidents is not so much
wisdom as wooliness.
For President Carter, the wooliness is
accomanied by a now wearying sense of
evangelism in his soul that he can best jus-
tify his four years in office by bringing
peace to the Middle East. There was con-
sumate arrogance in his belief that he could
do that in the first place when he sat in the
Oval Office.
Still, Camp David came closest to a
"success*' he could point to in his one term
a "success" that never quite disguised
his other abysmal failure: the humiliating
hostage-taking scenario staged in Iran, and
dilemma out of which Carter tried to crack
the nation with an even more humiliating
hush-hush military rescue operation that
died on the sands of the Iranian desert well
before it could get to Teheran.
Since the past galls Mr. Carter, he
spends so much of the present trying to
correct it. His book, "Keeping the Faith," a
mystifying fantasy devoted to his four
years in office, is one example of this. It is
history in a way that bears little relation-
ship to reality. Unfortunately, it devotes so
many pages to Camp David, but that is the
lopsided nature of the Carter years there
was too little to show for them. And so his
Weakness, contrasted by nothing, appears
all too glaring. Nor does the Carter ob-
session end now/
Hence, his trip to the Middle East this
week, which began with a stopover in Cairo
and some meetings with PLO people. It is a
" mark of Mr. Carter's diplomacy that he
steps into things long after everyone else
has stepped out.
And so, it escapes him that the for-
tunes of the PLO are these days on the de-
cline in Egypt and elsewhere in Araby,
too. For him, nothing has changed. If the
past must be justified and made to "work,"
then it must be done so on grounds that
only he can understand. They are yester-
day's, not today'8.
No wonder the State Department
shrugged and said little when it learned of
his meeting with the PLO. It was not so
much that U.S.policy remains not to talk
with the PLO until it recognizes Israel's
right to exist.
The Race
BEFORE, President Mubarak
embraced the Palestinian cause.
At the height of the Israeli
bombing of Beirut, he used the
embarrassment of the situation
to say nasty things, even about
Israel's alleged violations of the
Camp David accord. He then
violated the accord himself by
withdrawing Egypt's am-
bassador from Tel Aviv.
What Mubarak had in mind
was to ingratiate himself in
Araby and, ultimately, to bring
Egypt back to its former position
as spokesman in the West for the
Arab cause against Israel, of
course, but never stated that
way, since to state it that way
would be to make nonsense of
Egypt's role as a signatory to the
"peace" with Israel, which his
violation of it had already
Anyway, all that was before.
NOW, Mubarak is suddenly
tilting with the Palestinians. He
has especially in mind the PLO
people in his own midst who, like
all good revolutionaries, love
particularly to bite the hand that
feeds them.
By Mubarak's own count,
there are some 40,000
Palestinians living in Egypt
today, and only last week, he
accused them of inciting the
Egyptian people against the
government, meaning himself,
and the army, also pretty much
meaning the same thing. "I am
not prepared to have a state
within the state or above the
state," Mubarak declared.
One can only wonder whether
he had Lebanon in mind when he
said this, and what the PLO in
Lebanon did to the safety and
comfort of Israel that finally
moved the frustrated Israelis to
march into that benighted
country. Or would that have
made Mubarak's angry criticism
of Israel during the war in the
cause of his campaign to reelect
Egypt as mouthpiece of Araby
mere posturing?
IN ANY CASE, if Egypt
weren't facing such profound
problems at home economic,
religious and out-and-out
revolutionary whatever the
40,000 Palestinians were doing or
saying there could hardly count
for very much important enough
to get Mubarak so riled up in the
first place.
Mubarak's angry warning to
the Palestinians the other day
that he would begin mass
deportation of their numbers
unless they quieted down and
behaved themselves like cour-
teous guests rather than as
revolutionaries certainly em-
phasizes his awareness of their
true intentions.
But warnings are not action
not in the cause of Egypt in-
ternally; not in the cause of
Egypt'8 pan-Arabism; nor even
in Mubarak's ambition to forge
his image in Egypt as an
equivalent of his predecessors,
Sadat and Nasser. After all, in
the end, he must at least be able
to present himself as their equals
if he is to achieve either of the
first two causes, let alone both.
AND THAT is the trouble
with Mubarak, his essential do-
what our own
posturing in the Mediterranean
the other week was all about and
our sending of AW AC's to Egypt
and warnings to Libya's
strongman Khadafy not to
engage in any military ad-
venturism to Egypt's south. To
put it bluntly: we have Israel in
our hip-pocket. Now, how about
Egypt, too?
THE REAGAN Administra-
tion will say it is all being done in
the name of a peaceful attempt to
help Egypt unravel the tangle of
its domestic economic crisis. But
the fact is that, following a June,
1981 agreement, Egypt pur-
chased two nuclear reactors from
the U.S. of "relatively low" pow-
er in the 1,000 megawatt range
each, and for low-grade uranium
But the agreement included
technical and training assistance,
as well as the supply of services
for uranium enrichment, which is
a euphemism for converting
nuclear reactors from pur-
portedly electrical energy
(peaceful) purposes to military
To clarify the point: Just one
year later, on July 3, 1982, the
U.S. shipped Egypt a 1.5
megawatt nuclear laboratory, for
industrial electronic radiation,
more specifically, for handling
electrical cables and sterilizing
medical products. Or bow,,

Floridian Spotlight on Rabbi Prank N. Surtdheim, DJ).
Rabbi Frank N. Sundheim be-
|came a doctor last week.
Now, that did not say "Dr.
I Sundheim" because Rabbi Sund-
heim does not want to be "Dr.
Sundheim." He called himself by
his new title just once, in his bul-
letin article for Congregation
Schaarai Zedek this month. As he
stated, "This will be the first
and last time you will ever see
me refer to myself as "Dr. Sund-
heim" But for this once, permit
And qvell he did as he received
| his Doctor of Divinity, Honoris
Causa, degree from Hebrew
[Union College Jewish Insti-
tute of Religion at Founders' Day
Exercises at the Cincinnati cam-
I pus. "The D.D. degree, we used
j to joke as students, really stood
for Doctor of Durability," Rabbi
Sundheim laughed. "Now that it
is me on the receiving end, I cer-
tainly look at it a lot differently."
So do his friends and col-
leagues as exemplified by the let-
! ters of congratulations he has re-
[ ceived from all around the coun-
try. The D.D. degree is awarded
honorarily to those rabbis who
have served with distinction for
25 years. Rabbi Sundheim ex-
plained that HUC-JIR has two
earned doctorates, the PhD in
Judaic Studies (used primarily in
the teaching area, covers
philosophy and language, may be
earned by non-Jews) and the
DHL, Doctor of Hebrew Letters,
which is earned, but not at the
PhD level. This allows for indivi-
dual study by Rabbis occupying
pulpits as there is no residency
The Founders' Day Exercises
mark the recognition of the es-
tablishment in Cincinnati of the
first institution of Jewish higher
learning in America by Rabbi
Isaac Mayer Wise in 1875, and
the 1922 founding of the Jewish
Institute of Religion in New York
by Rabbi Stephen S. W.ise. The
subsequent merger 'of the two
schools took place in 1950. Today
the College-Institute includes
campuses in Los Angeles and
Jerusalem in addition to the Cin-
cinnati and New York campuses.
Dr. Alfred Gottschalk, presi-
dent of Hebrew Union College
conferred the honorary degree on
Rabbi Sundheim and ten other of
his classmates from the 1958
graduating class. In addition,
honorary Doctors of Humane
Letters degrees were awarded to
Abraham S. Braude, and Judge
George Edwards, both of Cincin-
nati, Ohio.
Prior to coming to Tampa as
Associate Rabbi at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek to serve with
Rabbi David L. Zielonka in 1966,
Rabbi Sundheim served at Con-
gregation Ohev Shalom, Hun-
tington, West Virginia and prior
to that he was a U.S. Army
Chaplain at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
* "I never wanted to be an assis-
tant or to have an assistant," ex-
plained Rabbi Sundheim. "My
goals were always modest. But
growth is essential even though it
limits personal relationships."
Today, he and his congregation
are discussing greater emphasis
on education and youth which
could possibly lead to the addi-
tion of an assistant rabbi at Con-
gregation Schaarai Zedek to
service the membership of almost
700 families.
One of the activities Rabbi
Sundheim enjoys most is his
work on the Social Action Com-
mission for Reform Judaism. His
involvement in Civil Rights in
Huntington, W. VA., led to a
congregant's remarking (upon
the Sundheim's leaving to come
to Tampa)," I disagreed with
everything you did hare, but I
would have been disappointed in
you if you weren't there."
Rabbi Sundheim, is also a lift
member of the Board of Directors
of the HUlsborough Community
Mental Health Center. Cocon-
venor of the Clergy Dialogue of
rabbinate and going more with
organizations, Hillel and teach-
ing. Many are leaving the rab-
binate and working in psy-
chology an counseling."
"Today the rabbi as 'symbolic
exemplar of a way of life people
have no intention of following'
doesn't necessarily hold true.
Spouses of rabbis have their own
professions and careers."
Changes in the rabbinate are
not the only changes he sees.
"The Jewish community doesn't
look as good to me. On the sur-
face the community is united,
united in indifference."
This is particularly frustrating
to a rabbi who continues to view
social action as the area most im-
portant to him. That action today
is centered around the Nuclear
Freeze issue. "It is the great

Congregation Rodeph Shalom
in Philadelphia is where Rabbi
Sundheim grew up and he found-
ry remembers "his" Rabbi Louis
Wolsey." He was a giant, a great
speaker, very controversial and
very anti-Zionist," Rabbi Sund-
heim recalls. "He was followed at
Rodeph Shalom by Rabbi David
Wise in my confirmation year.
He, too, was a great human
"Today there are no giants in
the rabbinate. No rabbis in the
mold of Wolsey, Stephen S. Wise
or Abba Hillel Silver." But Rabbi
Sundheim looks at this as not
only reflective of the rabbinate,
but of the times.
"It used to be that the rabbi
was one of the few truly educated
people in the congregation. The
sermon was of great importance.
Today congregations are made of
high ratio of professionals, most
are at least college graduates.
Television brings news of the
world and political scene into the
home. And there are documen-
taries on every subject through
Rabbi Sundheim also sees a
great difference in the view of
today's rabbis toward their pro-
fession. "They expect to be co-
parents, have more time with
their families and live their own
lives. They are less into the pulpit
issue of our day," said Rabbi
Sundheim, "It is a human issue,
a moral issue and therefore a
Jewish issue."
Rabbi Sundheim is working
with the Tampa Coalition for
Survival collecting signatures
calling for a City of Tampa re-
ferendum on the nuclear freeze is-
sue. "Our Temple board has ap-
proved the Social Action com-
mittees involvement in coalitions
favoring nuclear feeze and that is
the framework within which we
are working. The concept of civil
defense against nuclear weapons
is pure bunk."
The Joys of the Rabbinate are
expressed by Rabbi Sundheim as
"realizing you do have influ-
ence." Anyone in the rabbinate
who expected to have massive
doses of influence would be very

disappointed, he feels.
And the Frustrations of the
Rabbinate he sees as the inability -
to reach people. "Sometimes you
don't have what they want or
need. Sometimes you make mis-
takes or hurt unintentionally."
Being yourself is another dif-
ficulty he sees in the rabbirste,
"You never shake being the
rabbi, including at home." He
says he could never adequately
express the pressures on the
rabbi's wife and family.
Pride of his own wife carries
through all this rabbi's conversa-
tions. "To this day, she is the
only woman to address the
CCAR (Central Conference of
American Rabbis) plenary ses-
sion." Mrs. Sundheim (the
former Adrianne Bauer known to
her friends as 'A') spoke on "The
Personal Equation of the Rabbi's

Trees In The Desert Impossible! No, Reality!
Israeli forestry expert,
d by ancient desert
altural techniques, has
the brown rolling hills of
Negev desert with green
quets of thriving trees.
lideon Saphir, an executive of
Jewish National Fund, the
jiization responsible for land
elopment in Israel, is the man
nd a project to beautify
ert roads with man-made
i by capturing run-off rain
er during wet months.
eventeen years ago, Saphir
sted on initiating what may
called a "hare-brained
ne" of planting the small
ves in catchment areas
tiout resorting to artificial
ation. Today travelers and
Bouin shepherds can thank
for the precious shade and
pleasing splashes of color in the
sometimes bleak landscape,
where ten inches of rain fall
"The land in this area is
basically unfit for agriculture,"
says the khaki-dressed, tanned
forester who has worked for the
JNF out of Beersheva for the
past three decades. "But simply
by building a two-meter high
dam out of earth in a river-bed-
type area where water collects in
rainy winter months, anyone can
cultivate trees." Saphir estimates
that one person using a tractor
can complete the task in one day.
Selecting a spot where water
naturally accumulates, with
moderately steep hills
surrounding it, a worker levels
the site, builds the small dam,
digs a spillway on the side to
iluiiliultii !|iiiil|iiiimii"ii
M a*
relieve pressure from the dam
when rainfall has been unusually
plentiful, plants the trees and
then watches them grow. Only
minor repairs to the dam are
required over the years.
Israelis call the site a "liman,"
the Hebrew word for "Harbor"
(namal) spelled backwards. The
technique is similar to
agricultural practices of the
ancient Nabateans who farmed
the Negev desert further south
with the aid of "catchment"
Agronomists here have
determined that in order to usp
the technique effectively, the
ratio between the cultivated area
and the surrounding
"dominating" slopes must be at
least 1:30. Another important
factor is the quality of the earth
and its ability to absorb and hold
the rainwater over the months.
The Negev area enjoys a soil
crust called "loess" which forms
on top of the earth after the rainy
period and prevents evaporation
to a significant extent.
Generally speaking, the limans
have been planted with
eucalyptus trees, the first type of
tree planted by Gideon Saphir.
Over the decades it has proved to
be the most hardy for the project.
"The eucalyptus can stand for
months in water," explains
Saphir, relating that they have
been used in Israel's north to dry
up swampy areas, "and yet they
grow quickly in arid zones."
Among the other trees that have
been tried is the Jerusalem pine,
but Saphir feels its appearance
doesn't suit the natural setting of
the desert.
Asked about the possibility of
practical agriculture in the liman,
Saphir pointed out that some
Bedouins have planted fruit
trees, such as figs, in their own
limans with success. He ffels that
it might be possible to grow
grapes and pomegranates in
Saphir reminisces about the
first liman he planted, during a
wet desert winter in 1957 when he
was head of afforestation in the
Negev region. He was returning
with workers at the end of the
day in a downpour and saw a
catchment area filling with water
because it had been dammed by
the road. Taking off his boots and
socks, he spent several cold,
damp hours valiantly planting
seedlings in the mud. He
returned to the site a few weeks
later to discover that the trees
had taken root enough
evidence to convince his
superiors that it was feasible to
create more of these tree-planting
areas in the desert.
Berlin-born Gideon Saphir was
the only member of his family to
survive the Holocaust. His
mother managed to put him on a
special children's train to
Holland in 1940. From there he
wen(. to England and a short time
later came to what was then
called Palestine.
After fighting in the Negev
with the Palmach during and
prior to the 1948 War of
Independence, he began working
for the Jewish National Fund in
the early 1950s as a forester.
Today he is head of JNF in-
formation for the southern

CARTER WILL also visit the

Carter specifically asked the
Israelis not to provide an escort
on his visit to the occupied terri-
tories. He will entertain Arab
dignitaries from the territories at
a dinner in Jerusalem Saturday
to resign as Defense
Minister as a result of the fin-
dings of the commission of
inquiry into the Beirut refugee
camps massacre which the
Cabinet accepted in full.
BERMAN, a former Energy
Minister, resigned from Begin s
government after the massacres
in the Shatila and Sabra refugee
camps last Sept. 16-18 because
Begin adamantly opposed a
judicial inquiry into Israel's
possible culpability. The com-
mission was set up only after
tremendous public pressure was
brought to bear on the Prime
Berman announced that when
the issue of Sharon's continued
membership on the Defense
Committee is raised in the
Knesset plenary he will vote with
the opposition. Another Liberal
MK, Dror Seigerman, said he
would do the same. The decision
to retain Sharon was adopted by
the Cabinet at Begins insistence.
The vote was 6-1. A number of
ministers abstained.
Begin's position surprised
observers inasmuch as it was
assumed that he was not averse
to seeing Sharon out of the
frontline of policy-makers.
Cabinet sources said they knew
nothing of any agreement bet-
ween Begin and Sharon with
respect to his appointment to the
committee. They attributed the
decision either to party politics or
to Begin s personal conviction

News in Brief
Did Jewish Extremists Plant Bomb?
By JTA Report
extremist group is suspected by
police of having planted a bomb
at the entrance to the Temple
Mount last Friday as hundreds of
Moslem worshippers were on
their way to pray at the mosques
there. The bomb was discovered
and dismantled safely.
The incident was the second of
its kind in a week. A week earlier
a bomb exploded outside a He-
bron mosque where worshippers
were finishing their morning
prayers. No one was hurt, but
police' said the bomb would have
caused casualties had it detona-
ted a few minutes later when
people were leaving the mosque.
Arabs in the Hebron area
continue to complain of haras-
sment by Jewish settlers.
Leaders of the settlers have
denied any connection to the
harassment but warned they
would react strongly to rock
throwing attacks on Jews by
Jewish Student Conducted
Anti-Semitic Campaign
GENEVA A 23-year-old
Jewish medical student arrested
in Basel was described by police
as the perpetrator of a campaign
of virulent anti-Semitic graffiti,
harassment and death threats in
that city last month.
The disclosure by the police
last Friday that Philip Gotchel.
son of a prominent Jewish family,
was solely responsible for the
acts called unprecedented in
Switzerland, stunned Jews and
non-Jews alike. The Jewish com-
munity expressed deep sympathy
for the "shame and scandal to his
family.'* Gotchel has been placed
under psychiatric care.
The young man, nephew of a
leading physician, was said to be
an excellent student at the Basel
medical school. Most of the anti-
Semitic acts were directed
against Jewish fellow students,
their families and their non-Jew-
ish friends.
Burg Quits Rece

Premier Menachem Begin. He

he will not run because he insists

Burg, a veteran leader of the
National Religious Party, said he
did not want to win by a slender
majority which would be the case
because the opposition Labor
Alignment is pushing its own
candidate, Chaim Herzog, a for-
mer Ambassador to the United
Nations and one time chief of
military intelligence.
Some observers suggested that
Burg feared he could lose the
election which is conducted by
secret ballot.
Three Sentenced For
Shooting Envoy Argov
LONDON Three members
of a Baghdad-based Palestinian
terrorist group were sentenced to
30 and 35 year prison terms in
Central Criminal Court here for
the attempted assassination of
the Israeli Ambassador to
Britain. Shlomo Argov last June
Hassein Said. 23, a Jordanian
national who fired the shots that
left the 53 year-old Israeli diplo-
mat almost totally paralyzed,
and Marwan Bonna, 20, also of
Jordan, who drove the getaway
car, were given 30 year sentences
by Judge William Mars Jones.
Nauoff Rosan, 36, an Iraqi
citizen, described by the prose-
cution as the leader of the gang,
received a 35 year sentence.
The prosecutor said the three
were members of the Palestine
National Liberation Movement, a
breakaway faction of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization,
headed by Sabri Banna who is
known as Abu Nidal.
Only Jewish Minister
In France Defeated
PARIS Frances only Jew-
ish minister running in Sunday's
nationwide municipal elections,
Culture Minister Jack Lang, was
heavily defeated in Paris' predo-
minantly Jewish Third District.
Lang, a Socialist, had wooed
the Jewish electorate, which
seems, according to first poll
studies, to have failed him. His
competitor, Gaullist Jacques
Dominati, known as pro-Israeli,
did not specifically seem to court
the district's Jewish electorate.
Israel's main friend within the
government, Interior Minister
Gaston Defferre, failed to win in
Sunday's first round and will
have to face a second run-off elec-
tion next Sunday. It is the first
time that Defferre, who has
served Marseilles Mayor since
the end of the war, is in trouble.

Despite Reports of His Death,
Gauleiter Koch Still Alive
Erich Koch, one-time Nazi
gauleiter of the Ukraine, is
alive in a Polish prison des-
pite having been sentenced
to death in 1919, the Daily
Telegraph reported this
He was sentenced for the
murder of 72,000 Poles and the
official reason for him not being
executed was that he was in poor
health. But the Daily Telegraph
believes he may have bargained
for his life in return for a promise
to help locate Nazi plunder. He is
now 85.
Koch, who was also war-time
Reich defense commissioner in
East Prussia, is believed to be the
most senior Nazi in captivity
after Rudolf Hess. Hitler's
deputy, who is held in Spandau
Prison in West Berlin.
Robin Gedye wrote that Koch is
in a top security prison in the
picturesque village of Barczewd,
in Poland's northern lake district.
Koch was due to take charge of
Moscow had the Nazis captured
it. In the Soviet Union he was
wanted for the murder of four
million Russians and Jews and
for sending two million people to
forced labor.
As the war ended, he escaped
to Denmark before returning to
live under an assumed name near
Hamburg in West Germany. The
British found him there in 1949
and handed him over to the
According to the Daily
Telegraph, his wife set up a fund
for him in a Polish bank worth
some 10,000 Pounds Sterling a
year, from which he has bought

Eitan Says Israel
Will Not Attack SAM-5's
TEL AVIV Chief of Staff
Gen. Rafael Eitan told Israel
Radio that Israel had no inten-
tion of attacking the newly-
emplaced Soviet-made and
apparently Soviet-manned SAM-
5 missiles inside Syria.
In an interview with the army
radio, Eitan said: "I don't know
on what basis they (the Syrians)
are ascribing or announcing such
intentions. It may be that they
are simply making mistaken
assessments, and it may be that
with such words they are dis-
guising their own intentions."
He said he would not com-
pletely eliminate the possibility
that the Syrians, under Soviet
urging, might take "some sort of
initiative against Israel."
Some Israeli military leaders
have said recently that the
missiles are only a relatively
minor problem with them. But
the political aspects are said to be
more complicated and worrying.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And they came, both men and women, as many as were wUl-
ig-hearted. and brought. all jewels of gold"
VAYAKHEL Moses gathered the people together and in-
structed them in the holiness of the Sabbath. He also instructed
them in how to build the Tabernacle and its vessels. Bezalel and
Oholiab headed the skilled craftsmen working on the Taber-
nacle. The people gave liberally toward the sanctuary n
liberally. in fact, that it was necessary to ask them to stop. Ones
again, the details of the Tabernacle and its vessels are given, at
the end of this portion.
"Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of
the Lord filled the tabernacle"
PEKUDE "These are the accounts of the Tabernacle, even
the Tabernacle of the testimony, as they ware rendered accord-
ing to the commandment of Moses, through the service of the
Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest"
iExodus M21). "All the gold that was used for the work ...
was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty
shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary. And the silver of them
that were numbered of the congregation was a hundred talents,
and a thousand seven hundred and three-score and fifteen
shekels (Exodus 38.24-25). '' And of the blue, and of purple, and
scarlet, they made plaited garments, for ministering in the holy
place" (Exodus 39.1). With the conclusion of the Tabernacle,
Moses blessed the children of Israel. On the first day of the first
month in the second year since the departure of the children of
Israel from Egypt the Tabernacle was set up. A cloud covered it
and the glory of God filled the Tabernacle. When the loud rose,
the children of Israel continued on their journey through the
desert toward the Pr^mtved Land.

Bar-Han U. Studies Impact of Lebanon
Operation "Peace for Galilee" has left its mark
on Israeli universities, where a large number of
sludents have had to desert the campus and head
for the battlezone in Lebanon. The extent of
student mobilization during this war came as no
surprise to Dr. Mordehai Bar Lev and Dr. Perry
Kedem, both of Bar-Han University, who per-
formed a comprehensive research on the subject
I entitled "The Jewish World of Israeli Students."
The researchers conducted an opinion poll
[among 1,250 Jewish students (male and female)
selected from all six higher education institutions
in Israel The statistical assessment of the
analysis concluded that 33 percent of these
students served an additional period in the UN1
permanent army following their regular military
service. Some 68 percent of the students inter-
viewed served in IDF combat units, and a total of
80 percent served as officers or commanders.
While some analysis is predicting dire conse-
quences of an oil price collapse, others believe
that the lower crude prices will have a very posi
tive impact on the world economy, according to
the new issue of "Petro-Impact," bi-monthly
publication of the American Jewish Committee s
Institute of Human Relations that reports on
petrodollar influence in American affairs."
The publication attributes the favorable view
to, among others, former energy administrator
John Sawhill. whom "Petro-lmpacf quotes:
My feeling is the sharp increase we had in
energy prices really acted as a tax on American
business and consumers, and a decrease would act
as a tax deduction. I believe it would be very
stimulative to the economy."
Nine major U.S. corporations have agreed to
disclose to their stockholders the extent of their
efforts to influence American policy in the Middle
East. A number have also pledged not to engage
in such activities in the future.
The agreements have been reached as the result
of an intensive campaign by the American Jewish
Congress to compel major companies to reveal
such lobbying activities, particularly when it does
not advance the interests of the corporation or its
The corporations that have agreed to make full
disclosure of such activities rather than fight such
shareholder resolutions include Aluminum Co. of
America, American Airlines, Deere and Com-
pany, Eastern Airlines, Kellogg, NL Industries,
Kepublic Steel, SmithKline Beckman and West-
inghouse. A similar agreement is now being nego-
tiated with at least one other company, according
to Will Maslow, general counsel of AJCongress
who is coordinating the project.

The Jewish Sound
The voice of the "Jewish
Sound" radio program is a deep
gutteral one. laden with the ac-
cent of the host's native Hebrew.
Israeli born Oded Salpeter cele-
brated his second anniversary as
host of the "Jewish Sound" on
WMNF (FM 88.5) in January.
The program airs each Sunday
morning from 9-11. WMNF (FM
88.5) features the "Jewish
Sound" as well as many other
programs of music and informa-
tion that can't be heard on other
Bay Area radio stations. This
unique station is a non-commer-
cial operation based in Tampa,
broadcasting at 70,000 watts to
listeners throughout the Bay
Area, including St. Petersburg
and Sarasota.
Oded began solo hosting the
"Jewish Sound" in January of
1981 after having joined two rab-
bis, Lazar Rivkin and Yakov
Werde, who started the program
in April of 1980. As host, Oded
volunteers many hours each week
producing the weekly show. The
non-commercial radio station
exists on volunteer participation
and contributions by the listen-
ers. Oded's commitment to bring
Jewish culture to the local air-
ways is distinguished by the fact
that there are only some 35 other
Jewish radio programs across the
country, mostly in the major
The many aspects of Jewish
life and culture are explored on
the "Jewish Sound." Every week
you can hear interviews, news
from Israel, all types of Jewish
music, comedy, and even book
reviews and recipes. Many illus-
trious guests have appeared on
the program including: General
Moshe Dayan; his daughter,
author Yael Dayan; actor Her-
shel Bernardi; entertainer Geulla
Gil: comedian Joey Russell and
Jack Spitzer, international presi-
dent of B'nai B'rith. Local lead-
ers of most of the Jewish commu-
nity groups have also appeared
on the program to talk about
their group's activities. Repre-
sentatives from the Jewish Com-
munity Center, Hadassah. Hillel,
the Jewish Federation, National
Council of Jewish Women,
Jewish War Veterans, and others
have been interviewed on the
"WMNF is a Community Ra-
dio station, which means that our
airwaves are for the public I
would like to hear from more
Jewish people in the area who
have information to share or re-
cords to loan," said Oded. He is
also looking for musicians to
form a band which wll perform
klezmer and other Jewish music
live on the radio program. In par-
ticular, musicians who play the
trombone, viola and violin are
Music with a Jewish identity,
ranging from Yiddish musk from
the early 1,900's, to contempo-
rary Israeli rock. To Chassidic
music, is featured each Sunday.
Oded is well-versed in the various
musical forms, having grown up
playing the piano and singing in
Israel's largest school choir. He's
especially interested in what he
calls the "new wave" of Jewish-
American music. Far from the
"punk" music from England, or
the United States, this "new
wave" music by such groups as
the Diaspora Yeshiva Band.
Megania and Kapelye, is per-
formed in both Hebrew and Eng
lish, using many musical forms to
express their strong indent if ica
tion as Jews with Israeli. They
use folk, rock, blues and even
bluegrass and reggae rhythms.
Liturgical music is now being
performed in contemporary
musical styles. In New York City
this music can be heard regularly.
To date, only the Diaspora
Yeshiva Band has performed in
Tampa. They too were guests on
the "Jewish Sound."
Oded Salpeter
The program has also played
host to many of the talented mu-
sicians living in this area. Anne
Spector, noted soprano and di- ,
rector of the Towerettes of
Tampa, Bob Wilson's band from
St. Petersburg, and Israeli *
singers now living in the area,
have performed ,;ve on the .

The first Sunday of each
month is devoted to bringing to
life the Yiddish music of the past
with recordings by many of the
artists like Aaron Lebedif and
Molly Pickett, who toured on the
borscht circuit. "I get a great
response from the senior citizens
who remember these artists,"
said Oded. The last Sunday of
each month is the request pro-
gram. "I've gotten calls from all
over even such small commu-
nities like Gibsonton and Port
Charlotte. The response is fan-
The news aired on the "Jewish
Sound'' comes to WM N F directly
from the Israeli Broadcast Serv-
ice. "Israel Magazine" and
"Vistas of Israel" provide
WMNF with feature stories.
One of the proudest moments
in the history of the "Jewish
Sound" was on May 2. 1982, as
Israeli Independence Day was
celebrated live from the Pinellas
Jewish Community Center.
WMNF saw its first live remote
broadcast and the "Jewish
Sound" was expanded to three
hours to air the ceremonies live.
While not an easy feat to accom-
plish, co-hosts Joy Katzen, of
WPLP, Oded, and Pamela Tench,
of the Go Ida Meir Center, pre-
sented an exciting and
memorable program.
Upcoming specials planned for
WMNF's "Jewish Sound" in-
clude: a program on Jan Peerce,
famous tenor of the Metropolitan
Opera; a Passover special with
children from the Hillel Day
School; Jewish classical music;
and a program to discuss reli-
gious cults.
In order for the "Jewish
Sound" to flourish, Oded would
like to have more input from the
listeners. People can send in an-
nouncements tor the Jewish com-
munity, tell others to tune in and
listen, write letters with your
feedback on the program, con-
tribute records and become a
listener-sponsor to WMNF.
The annual rate of sponsorship
is just $20 a year, to which you
receive the WMNF monthly pro-
gram guide. You can call WMNF
at 226-3003. or write to 3838
Nebraska Ave., Tampa, FL

deductible and allow the station
to continue providing the excel-
lent service to the community.
