The hatred of the Jews had
been whipped up in Bessarebtz,
Kishinev's only newspaper,
whose editor, P. Krushevan, was
financed from a slush fund by
Von Plehve, the Russian Interior
Minister. The caper's minting
house had published the blood
libel pamphlets which were used
to trigger the massacre.
The government believed that
by fomenting hatred against the
Jews it could divert the rising
tide of revolutionary feeling
throughout Russia.
AS SOON as the news was
published, large protest meetings
were held throughout Europe and
North America. The German
Kaiser and the Austrian Emperor
sent personal protests to Czar
Nicholas II.
A joint resolution was passed
by both houses of Congress, and
President Theodore Roosevelt
voiced his country's horror in a
personal letter which the Czar re-
fused to accept. In Russia itself.
Count Leo Tolstoy arraigned the
government as the chief culprit.
The deepest impact, however,
was on the Jews themselves, and
especially on the newly-launched
world Zionist movement.

Secret Collaboration
Between Israel and India
LONDON (ZINS) The London newspaper. The
Observer, has recently published some sensational news
on collaboration in secret between the governments of
India and Israel. The background is as follows: News that
Moslem Pakistan aims at producing an atomic bomb has
alarmed Israel, as well as India.
ACCORDING TO the newspaper, India, which has
practically no diplomatic ties with Israel, has attempted
to sound out the Jewish state about its intentions con-
cerning this development. In very secret talks that took
place in Jerusalem, Indian diplomats asked whether the
Israelis are prepared to deal with the Moslem bomb in
Pakistan the way they dealt with the atomic reactor in
As The Observer put it, the Pakistani atomic project
has brought India and Israel closer together. In a very
discreet way, the Indian government is prepared to assist
Israel if it decides that the Pakistani atom reactor has to
be put out of commission.
CITING WHAT are described as highly reliable
sources, The Observer says that India's leadership would
be delighted if Israel were not to remain silent (notwith-
standing that India already has an atomic bomb and can
on its own threaten its Pakistani foe).
The Observer further writes that rumors on this secret
Israeli-Indian collaboration have already reached the ears
of the Pakistanis, via American intelligence, and that they
have, for the time being, deferred plans for the testing of
an underground atom bomb.
Israel-Lebanon Talks Appear

United States have entered
another round of negotia-

background of deadlock
over the future role of south

Negotiating sources in all three
delegations say this is the last
major obstacle, but it could th-

it is resolved. These sources con-

THE DEADLOCK was high-
lighted at a lengthy meeting in
Jerusalem between U.S. special
envoy Philip Habib, Israeli For-

and Defense Minister Moshe

the session said no progress was
ahieved on the matter of Haddad.
Habib transmitted the firm
Lebanese refusal to have the
Major continue at the head of
security units in the south.
Shamir communicated Israel's
adamant insistence that Haddad

We were just thrilled to hear about the arrival of little Rachaet
Sara Stem, first child of Richard and Sara Stern. Rachael
arrived on Jan. 10. She weighed 6 lbs. 13 ozs. and was 19Vt
inches long. This little miss has some mighty thrilled Grand-
parents who just can't wait to start spoiling her. They are Col.
Sidney and Revs Stern of Reddington Beach and Helen Russell
of Clearwater. Rachael's baby naming took place at the Stem's
home on the evening of March 27, with a reception following.
Rabbi Prank Sundheim officiated. All of our love and bushels of
congratulations on this jouoys occasion.
Our friend Ruth Kirschner. who resides in the Jewish Towers,
had a mighty exciting trip over Passover so we'd like to share
the details with you. Ruth traveled to Minnesota to visit her son
and daughter-in-law and their three children. It was a special
treat because she was going to see her brand new grandchild.
Considering the fact that Minnesota is almost the other end of
the earth, Ruth is wisely going to stay for three weeks. Some of
you may remember Ruth's son from when he taught at the Hillel
School. Well sounds like a marvelous way to spend Passover
we hope you had a super time. Ruth. Thanks for sharing the
news with us.
What vacation plans are you making for the spring or
summer, and how about your kids, what are they going to be
doing when school is out??? We are really interested, so please

April 7. Eleven o'clock is cocktail hour and lunch and the fashion
show will follow at 12 o'clock. During the cocktail hour, jewelry

creations. The magnificent designer fashions of the "Boulevard"
will twirl, swirl, and glitter down the runway for all of those in

Kan tor and Barbara Garrett, owners of the Boulevard, are really
planning a spectacular show that we are sure you are not going
to want to miss. So contact the Tampa Museum now at 223-8130

prepared by expert chefs Ethel Rothenberg, Lucille Falk, Leslie
Osterweil. Miriam Einhorn, Miriam Marcos, and Carol Ziekmka.
The dinner tables looked perky and colorful with flowers
arranged in tennis cans by Carolyn Heller. It was really a terrific

Meet Don Glassman who moved to Tampa in July from Ft.
Meyers. Don originally hails from Miami, but after graduating
with an accounting degree from the University of Florida, he
went to work for a Ft. Meyers real estate development firm,
Coastland Corporation, in accounting. However, this year the
firm moved its offices to Tampa, thus Don's move to our fair
city. Don spends his free time playing racquet ball and getting to

The Tampa Jewish Federation
Women's Division under the
expert leadership of Bobbe Kar-
pay and Jolene Shor, 1983 Co-
Chairmen, has reached its pro-
jected goal of $175,000 with an
additional S 19,000 for the Israel
| Special Fund!
"Some of our divisions still
have outstanding cards and we
hope these will be completed
shortly to add to our record-set-
ting total," Karpay and Shor
stated. "If you have not made
your 1983 decision or have not
been contacted yet, we sincerely
ask that you contact the Federa-
tion office immediately. We pur-
posely structured this year's
Campaign so that we would not
drag out the time with the
Federation staff's assistance, we
were organized and no one is
"burned-out." The total amount
pledged last year was $151,655;
we set our goal realistically and
have reached it with the help of
the women in our community. We
are so very proud of our division
chairmen and their workers
they have done an outstanding
job and will be recognized later in
the year."
The women in the community,
knowing the local and overseas
critical problems have reached
out to show they care. Their gift,
like their time and energy, is an
expression of personal commit-
ment to the survival of the Jew-
ish people. With our help, the

To Back

The 10 member-states of
the European Economic
Community (EEC) have
called on the Palestinian
people and the Palestine
Liberation Organization to
back President Reagan's
Middle East peace initia-
tive and to empower King
Hussein of Jordan to enter
peace negotiations in the
The official statement, issued
at the EEC summit conference
here, also urged the Arab states
to take "full advantage" of the
current opportunity to try to
reach a peace settlement in the
Middle East.
AT THE same time, it reaf-
firmed its "past statementa"
which include the Venice declara-
tion of June, 1980, and specifical-
ly called for the implementation
of the rights of the Palestinian
people "with all that this im-
plies." The Venice declaration
had called, among other things,
for PLO "association" in any
Middle East peace process.
Despite a heavy work schedule
complicated by Western Euro-

Third World Nations Aligned Selves Behind Blindness

The leaders of the 101 Third World na-
tions and organizations who compose the
so-called non-aligned movement met the
other week in New Delhi. They have a habit
of blaming the worlds problems on every-
thing but themselves, viewing the world
through blinders and seeing nothing of the
chaos around them. They argue that the ills
of the world are a result of 'Yankee im-
perialism" and "Zionist aggression," and
because of this, their respective
'revolutionary movements" have not
succeeded in bringing prosperity and good
fortune to the masses. The hollowness and
even stupidity of these accusations was
best exemplified by Fidel Castro, principal
stooge of the Soviet Union and immediate
past chairman of the non-aligned group,
and Indira Gandhi, leader of the India host
During a two-hour tirade, the United
States was accused by Castro of plotting to
assassinate him, of encouraging "execrable
adventurism" by Israel in Lebanon, of "aid
and abetment" of South African domina-
tion of Namibia, of aggression against
Libya, of "genocide" in Central America, of
military expansionism in the Indian Ocean,
of "irresponsibly" imposing high interest
rates on the world market.
The Third World nations seemed either
not to care or else maintained a short
memory of the actions of its members:
Syria's crackdown in the town of Hamma
with uncompromising military force, death
toll in that carnage, some 20,000; the con-
tinuation of the Iran-Iraqi war, which
further exacerbates the tensions in the
Persian Gulf and which is taking thousands
of lives; and no one at the Summit meeting
had a word of concern about the violence in
India's northeastern state of Assam where,
while the meeting was being held, reports
said up to 2,700 people had been killed in a
month of ethnic violence.
Neither was there mention of the martial
law crackdown in Poland that has so easily
slipped from view of the leaders who claim
to represent the workers. No mention of the
continued occupation by some 100.000
troops of the Soviet Union in the once sov-
ereign nation of Afghanistan. No mention
of anything related to means by which to
cocperate with one another and relieve the
oppression of people of the Third World na-
A true appraisal of the conference of the
Third World nations and their revolution-
aiy mi. .iiicnts might conclude that they
have done little rv-ore than lead their people
down the path of suffering and chaos with
little hope in sight for an entrance into the
20th Century, and only 17 years left to
accomplish that.
Indian Surprise
W hatever old adage you can think of
ibout politics that they make strange
bedfellows, that they are simply politics
applies at this point. Having just said what
must be said about the Third World
conference, we must deal with a report
which comes now from London.
In that ancient city, The Observer tells
us that there are secret goings on between
the governments of India and Israel.
Keally? But Indira Gandhi, in her
welcoming address to the conference, took

out after Israel and Zionism as the ultimate
bete noir of the planet Earth.
Not to worry. In matters of the
production of atomic bombs, politics make
strange bedfellows, etc. India, fearful that
Pakistan is making one of its own bombs, is
now playing footsie with the Israelis
sounding them out about maybe pulling
another lightening reactor attack in
Pakistan similar to the one they pulled w
back when in Baghdad. ^
Observes the observer: The Indian
government is prepared to assist Israel if k
decides that the Pakistani reactor must so
In the Third World, at least the Zionists are
good for something. But what we wonder is
what the Gandhi forces mean by "assist" in
a search-and-kill operation against a Third
World colleague.

Reagan appears in tails, suitably,
at the tail-end of a conga line. He
dons props composed of serape
and two-foot-wide sombrero and
sings a ditty to the thrilled
Site of all of this gaiety is the
98th annual dinner of the
Gridiron Club in Washington last
week. Reagan, a third-rate actor
in his heyday, cant resist the
third-rate scenario
AT A TIME when the govern-
ment is scratching for every pos-
sible penny, except of course in
the garden of the makers of war
machines, one is appalled by the
IV.-.idem s lavish lifestyle and.
e\en more, by speculation about
the salary of the unidentified
federal employee or employees
who were paid with taxpayers'
money to devote time to writing
the clever witticisms that Mr.
Reagan mouthed at the Gridiron
shindig. Certainly, they weren t
his own witticisms. For example:
"You ask me if I'll run again.
Well I II reveal tonight. I've got a
big announcement that I bet
you'd love to write. When every-
thing recovers and the country's
on the go. I'll come out on the
White House lawn and tell you
yes or no."
Imagine the creativity here.
Consider the effort that went into
the President's memorizing these
lines. Surely, it must be worth
whatever it cost. And in contrast,
to be sure, there is dour, old Yuri
Andropov who is these days in a
power struggle with the Krem
Una No. 2 bossman. Konstantin
Chernenko, reportedly Leonid
Brezhnev's personal choice of
successor to the fount of Soviet
power, who has yet to make it as
No. 1.
Dour, old Andropov, hither
more, is ill with kidney and heart
disabilities. Maybe that is why he
has been so cranky in bis re-
sponse to President Reagan's
outof space speech last week
the one before this surprise ap-
pearance at the Gridiron fes-
tivity, the one about meeting the
Soviet nuclear threat with a cost-
ly anti-ballistic missile system by
the next century.
THE BUCK Rogers one. of
course the one that would
employ lasers and microwave de-
> ices to explode incoming, hostile
nuclear weapons in flight well
before they reach their target
If Andropov weren't so crankv
and so sick, he would take it ail
with good cheer instead of con-
cluding that the President's aim
to get the drop on the Soviet
Lnion s military superiority con-
travenes every jot and tittle of
the already existing arms control
agreements between our two
countries. Maybe. If Andropov
could only have been at the
Gridiron thing, he would under-
stand that Ron means no true
otfense. Not a man in tails and
serape and sombrero. Maybe.
Anyway, isn't it much more
fun to have a leader who ap-
pears at the tail-end of a conga
hne in tails and serape and Isom-
T^ ** Commies just quoting

weight ui Plutonium.
CERTAINLY, he's a lot more
fun than dour, old Andropov.
And if you don't think so, then
Mr. Reagan ought to segue into a
cary song just lor you. Maybe.
After all. in these matters. Mr.
Kasgan has a singleminded pur-
pose. He will defeat the root of all
evil that lies in the Soviet Union
no matter what. Never mind the
root of any evfl that lies in the
United States.
In this, the President will not
be swayed. In one secret tele
phone conversation he has had
with an unnamed world leader re-
cently. Mr. Reagan addressed
himself to just this singleminded
purpose of his. Through secret
sources. I have obtained a snip-
pet of tape containing a recording
of thus most revealing snippet of
the conversation:
Ron: I have a singleminded
pur|Kse alMHil that. Your High-
ness 1 will not be swayed.
Unnamed World Leader: Mia
Ron: Yeah, that too. We must
come to recognize the Soviets as
the center of Sin City

that the detonation and fall-out

that next time he visits Your
Royal Highness in Riyadh.
Unnamed: What about
your own missiles. Mr. Presi-
dent? As things stand today,
what if they were somehow fired
by accident? Or maybe by the in-
ternational Zionist intrigue to
take over the world? It's every-
where, you know. Anyway, would
you abort them in mid flight,
thus saving tens of millions of
lives? Except, of course, if you
maneuvered them first over Tel

eservations may be made with
the NCCJ office at 223-2721.
In announcing the program,
the NCCJ material states:
In recent months, events in the
Middle East have transpired
which have led to an increase in
tension and the diminishing of
communication between the
Christian and Jewish commu-
nities. Two such events, the aud-
ience granted by Pope John Paul
II to Yassir Arafat of the PLO
and the invasion of West Beirut
by Israeli forces, have been es-
pecially disruptive of Jewish-
Catholic relations.
Our program today is designed
to provide dialogue and inter-
action between our panelists (2
Jewish, 2 Catholic), concerning
these events and their effect on
the constituencies each
represents, for the purpose of
promoting better understanding
and clarification of the per-
ceptions of each.
"We thmk about discharge from
the day of admittance. For aome,
it's a long and rocky road. But to
see someone return to a full Ufa
after leaving the hospital's care
that's worth all tha time, all
the effort, all the money."
For Hiya, Verter ia certain that
day will come soon. After 10
years of residential and outpat-
ient treatment, aha ia only
months away from living com-
pletely on her own again
thanks to the supporting, reha-
bilitative approach of the hospi-
tal's staff and to the use of new
and beneficial medications, some
of them developed in Ezrat Nas-
him's own laboratory.
Simple and no larger than an
average apartment, that
laboratory has an international
reputation. Its research focuses
on the psycho-biological causes
of mental illness and the devel-
opment of drugs to assist in
cures. An ambtioua new research
program, currently unfunded,
will seek effective treatment for
Alzheimer's Disease, a degenra-
tive brain condition causing
severe and premature senility in
people as young as 46.
Dr. Oppenheim, who will head
the program, explains its impor-
tance: -Nobody iroowe whjftbrain
cells die prematurely' With the
aging population in Israel and
in America and throughout the
world increasing so rapidly,
this research could contribute
towards preventing a major
worldwide public health prob-
It ia still, however, in indivi-
dual care and prevention suc-
cesses that Ezrat Hashim excels.
Hiya will soon come to terms
with her haunting past and live
fully "on the outside." Yacov,
however, will never be that for-
tunate. The trauma of his con-
centration camp experience runs
too deep and was. left unattended
for too many years after his
arrival in Israel from Poland in
1948. Progress for him ia
measured at a different tempo.
"When Yacov first came to
us." Verter recalls, "ha couldn't
do anything or become interested
in anything. Ha didn't respond to
anyone. He couldn't even ait
The long, patient, intensive
process required for Yacov'a
social retraining revealed the
strength of the Ezrat Naahim
staff. "We worked with him step
by step," says Verter, "slowly
building his confidence aa we in-
troduced him to other people, the
activities, the social clubs. Whan
it was too much for him, we let
him pull back but not for long.
Two steps ahead, one back.
"Today he goes to the music
club and cooking classes. He
talks to the other patients and
he's very concerned about
keeping track of the calendar. He
loves the holidays and every-
body enjoys observing them with

restored, another's eased. Hope
for a global breakthrough cure.

menta that sustain Dr. Dasberg

Israel Independence Day Plans
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
We Americans have always
had the freedom to move freely
within our national boundaries
and abroad, the freedom to seek
out career opportunities without
government limitations, the
freedom to live and worship as we
please without government
Too often we forget that not all
people on this planet have these
same freedoms.
No where wOl you find a crueler
example of government mistreat-
ment of a segment of its society
than in the way Jewish people in
the Soviet Union are treated.
We have all read and heard
accounts of how the Soviet Union
has restricted the freedom of its
Jews, those same freedoms that
we so often take for granted. We
all know the statistics of how
many Jews have been allowed to
emigrate from the Soviet Union
fewer and fewer each year
since 1979.
The emigration figures and the
personal accounts filtering out of
the Soviet Union show clearly the
Soviet government's lack of
regard for international law and
the accords on human rights it
has signed.
We Americans, who have
always spoken out against op-
pression, the loss of personal
freedoms, and the denial of basic
human rights, have an obligation
to speak out against the mis-
treatment of Jews in the Soviet
This is not a question of
Democrat versus Republican, or
Conservative versus Liberal.
This is a simple case of right
versus wrong. We must bring
pressure to bear on the Soviet
Union to comply with interna-
tional standards of basic human
rights, and to permit those Jews
who wish to emigrate to do so.

Thank you for sending me the

Everything was a very nice
reminder to me of the wonderful
visit to your country, which
brought me the warm feeling of
the constant support of our
brothers over the ocean.
You can't overestimate the
importance of their noble efforts,
because the situation with Jews
in Russia aggravated so much,
that people over there feel really
depressed. All kinds of help
moral, material, political is of
great importance now.
If you need any kind of in-
formation on refuseniks in Lenin-
grad, please write to me. Maybe
you will have a chance to send
there some materials (books,

nice if you'd inform me. I could

gate these materials among many

Hillel School Three
Festive Celebrations
The Hillel School Model Seder
held at Congregation Rodeph
Sholom on Monday, March 21,
was more than just a festive meal
and exemplary ritual experience.
Highlighted were additional
literary selections and an extra
place set at the head table.
These efforts were taken as af-
firmations, symbolic of the cur-
rent plight of Soviet Jewry and
the 40th anniversary of the War-
saw Ghetto Uprising. The head
table was unique because it was
comprised of student* from dif-
ferent grades (1-8) who helped
conduct the Seder. Matt Hilk,
Dorina Schuster, Adam Silver-
man, Laura Gordimer, Naomi
Sobel, Jeremy Schulman,
Shoshanna Base, Caron Jacob-
son, Danny Kotodner, and Teddy
Nathan led both English and He-
brew readings and the songs.
Students, teachers and the in-
vited guests from the varisus
Jewish agencies sat as families do
at Shabbst tables. They were
served a delicious meal by volun-
teer mothers from the Hillel
School Parents Association.
For Alia Iibman, 6th grader,
the morning of Wednesday, April
13, promises to be a joyous cele-
bration time. Alia will celebrate
becoming a Bat Mitrvah on Rosh
Chodesh-Iyar. Her Rabbi, Rabbi
Frank Sundheim of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek, will be present
and participating in the service
planned for her and Hillel School
classmates and friends.
Alia and her family are recent
Russian immigrants to the U.S.
and she had no previous religious
training prior to attending Hillel
School. Lynn MacDonsld is busy
helping organize s reception to
follow the Torah Service.

According to the sponsoring
group, "This film uses military
film of the two cities and of the
survivors plus interviews with
the survivors to depict clearly the
horrors of nuclear war. This film
is a must for all who would
understand the world in which we
live. It is a clear call to peace-
making in a nuclear war
threatened era."

Columnist Questioned
Allegations Denied UJA Funds Establish Settlements
By Detroit Jewish News
tions, in a Detroit Free
Press article from Wash-
ington by James McCart-
ney, that United Jewish
Appeal funds are used by
Israel for the establishment
of settlements in Judea and
Samaria, commonly refer-
red to as the West Bank,
were disputed here in a
statement by Max M.
Fisher, chairman of the
Board of Governors of the
Jewish Agency.
In the lengthy McCartney
article in the Free Press, the
statement is made, among other
comments, that "the settlements
probably would not exist without
these indirect U.S. subsidies,
which involve both public money
and tax deductible private
was headlined, "U.S. Funds
Help Israel Build More Settle-
ments." It claimed that indirect
U.S. subsidies to Israel total $1.5
billion over the last decade.
McCartney did not establish a
direct link between the U.S.
funds and the settlements, but
says the settlements are opposed
by U.S. policy. He uses unnamed
"Mideast experts within and out-
side the government" for his
source for the dollar amounts.
McCartney asserted that U.S.
foreign aid for Israel's economy
frees Israeli money for the settle-
ments. He also stated, "Private
contributors, whose donations fi-
nance the Jewish Agency and
other Zionist organizations, get
tax benefits. The organizations
Editorial Sizzler
Reportorial Hatchet Job 'Venomous'
The Detroit Jewish News, in a Front Page edi-
torial entitled "Reportorial Hatchet Job Need-
less Venom." declares:
"Sensationalism makes the front page, but it
doesn't justify subjective reporting.
A Detroit Free Press Washington correspon-
dent has a long record for being notorious in his
selection of data-of-his-choice that inevitably
smears Israel.
In last Sunday's report, aimed at poisoning
many minds on the subject of 'who finances the
Israeli settlements,' the reporter's sensation-
waving accredited it to Israel-supporting funds
from the U.S. It selected Israel from a global list
of countries whose financial incomes from the
U.S. are used for a multitude of internal appropri-
ations, some relating to the military and to the
in turn finance the settlements."
In a letter addressed to Free
Press Editor David Lawrence,
Fisher took exception to the
McCartney statements and de-
United Jewish Appeal and to
'other Jewish fund-raising or-
ganizations in other countries are
not in any way used for purposes
outside the 'Green Line' estab-
lished at the close of hostilities
ending the Arab-Israeli War of
June, 1967. The so-called Green
Line' separates Israel proper
from the territories administered
by Israel since the 1967 war.
Philanthropic contributions are
used for social welfare and educa-
tional purposes by the Jewish
Agency for Israel within Israel
proper and only within the 'Green
human rights differences with this country.
Israel, for the Free Press reported, was the means
of stabbing-in-the-back with distortions about the
United Jewish Appeal and Israel Bonds. It
smacked of means of appealing to prejudice over
tax deductions granted to charitable causes.
Max M. Fisher creditably refutes the major
distortions in that article. In the main, the report
thus questioned was an inexcusable hatchet job.
It doesn't do credit to a newspaper of great merit.
It was reporting meriting severest condemnation.
While Mr. Fisher's comment is all-too-gentle-
manly as a treatment of a distress-inspiring
report from the nation's capital, it creditably
symbolizes the need for facts rather than fiction,
and the Free Press stands rebuked for injuring
fair-play approaches in the treatment for foreign
Judge Avem Conn and Wayne
Feinstein, respectively president
and executive vice president of
the Jewish Welfare Federation,
asked for proof of the contentions
that McCartney colored and dis-
rupted the facts in his article.
The Free Press this week was
provided with reports from the
Comptroller General of the
United States and the accounting
firm that audits the United Israel
Appeal (UI A).
According to the report to
Congress bv the Comptroller
General, the office is
that U.8. assistance for i
Soviet refugees is in

the Passover holiday. He was 86
years old. The funeral took place
the next day in Jerusalem. A me-

Lieberman s notable record as
a scholar and a teacher included
world recognition as the discov-
ery of one of Maimonides' major
works on ancient Jewish law
which had been lost for more than
seven centuries.
He received the Bialik Prize in
1956 and is the only non-Israeli to
hold the Israel Prize, the highest
award of the State of Israel. This
was presented to him in 1971 in
recognition of his total literary
output, and especially because of
his then most recent, "Siphre
Zutta: The Midrash of Lydda."
In 1976, he was the third Jew
to receive the Harvey Prize. This
prestigious award usually recog-
nizes achievements in medicine or
the sciences, but was awarded to
Lieberman for his studies of the
civilization of the Middle East. In

general editor of the Concordance

"Secondly, the Jewish Agency
is neither an arm of the World
Zionist Organization nor an
agent or 'collaborator' of the
government. I was directly in-
volved in the reconstitution of
the Jewish Agency in the late
1960s and early 1970s establish-
ing its independence from the
government of Israel, both in
terms of purposes and opera-
tions. Today, the Jewish Agency
for Israel is the instrument of the
Jewish community outside of Is-
rael to aid in meeting social wel-
fare and educational needs of the
people of Israel that are not met
by the government.

ter. 1983 edition just off the
theme section poses three
low does the Jewish Com-
ity Center today help the
cation of the Jewish family?
What role does it (the JCC

strengthening Jewish conscious-
ness among family members?
3) What programs have proved
effective in deepening Jewish
awareness and bolstering Jewish
family life?
What follows are answers

And, speaking of old age, the
Leo Yassenoff Jewish Center in
Columbus (Ohio), presents two
short but thought-provoking ac-
counts of life's traumatic cross-
roads "Dealing With Death
and Divorce" and "Aging Two
Sides of the Coin."
From the JCC on the Palisades
(Tenafly, N.J.), JWB Circle
readers learn that workshops
"Exercises in Jewish Awareness"
have served as a catalyst to
bring Jewish residents of all ages
together to discuss common
problems and concerns.
From the South Area branch
of the JCC in Greater Boston
comes a narrative of Yiddishkeit,
a report on Jewish family life as
enriched by children through the
"Let's Celebrate" program.
South Area's "Let's Cele-
brate" creates a real understand-
ing of the Jewish holidays and
the part they play in developing
warm family feelings and a sense
of seasonal joys and memories.
"The simple act of learning
how to make jelly doughnuts
(sufganiotl for Hanukkah and the
more complex one of assembling
a Haggadah that has special
meanings for a specific family,"
JWB Circle's theme states, "are
among the ways parents ... are
learning how to inspire a life of
Judaism in their families through
our'Let's Celebrate' program."
Also featured in the current
JWB Circle is "Israeli Teens Go
for JCC Youth," an account of
American JCC youth making fast
friends among teen counterparts
in Israel, and "JCC Mural: Labor

project with nostalgic and his-
toric value in Baltimore.

wants to appoint Haddad

American proposals presented to
Shamir during his talks in Wash-
ington early last week are de-
signed Ul meet Israel's security
requirements in the border area
without the need for Haddad to
stay on in command of forces
there. The sources said Shamir
and Secretary of State George
Shultz disagreed over Haddad
during their talks in Washington.
On the Israeli side it was pla...
it I the expectation was for a
trade off involving Israel's de-
mands that Haddad should re-
i in exchange for Israel's
waiver of its demands that the
IDF maintain manned military
l.--i>- in south Lebanon for a con-
siderable period of time following
the IDF's withdrawal. Shamir in-
dicated in Washington that Is-
rael is prepared to forego the
second demand. Israel hoped that
in return for this concession, the
I^banese would waive their ob-
jections to Haddad.
This did not happen and Habib

The measure was a source of
bitter dispute in Israel and
among overseas Jews for many
years. Reform and Conservative
rabbinical and lay groups in the
U.S. and elsewhere had been
urging its defeat.
The Liberal MKs who voted
with the opposition were Sarah

Justice Dep't. Reversal
U.S. Probes Ties to Former Nazis
IJTA) The Justice De-
partment, reversing an
earlier position, has an-
lounced that it will conduct
'a comprehensive investi-
gation" into allegations
that Nazi war criminal
[Klaus Barbie, now in cus-
tody in France, was em-
ployed by U.S. government
agencies after World War
111 and helped by them to
|escape from Europe.
The Department's announce-
icnt said it viewed the allega-
tions "with deep concern" and
that a study of government files
Indicated a full scale investi-
gation was "warranted." The
)epartment, earlier, had refused
lo go into the case despite
[mounting evidence of the U.S. in-
[telligence community's involve-
[nunt with the former Gestapo
|chief in Lyons, France.
THE JUSTICE Department's
[reversal, reportedly under strong
pressure from Congress and the
White House, came just one
Imonth after the Jewish Tele-
(graphic Agency published the
Ifirst of an exclusive three-part
[series of articles by Charles
Allen. Jr.. an internationally
[prominent authority on surviving
INazi war criminals, exposing the
(clandestine U.S. involvement
|wilh Barbie.
Allen wrote on Feb. 16 that
IBarbie "was aided in his escape
[from Europe in late 1949 and
early 1950 by the Vatican, the
JUS. Army's Counter Intelligence
[Corps (CIC) and the Interna-
Itional Red Cross." He said he ob-
tained his information "from
various documents, including the
(Slate Department's" which de-
fied "Barbie's movements since
lis first utilization by the CIC in
11947 until his expulsion from
[Bolivia 36 years later."
for the JTA, published Feb. 18.
Allen wrote that "During the
same period he (Barbie) con-
tracted work with the CIA" and
acted "at the strategic direction
of a post-World War II SS under-
ground, Die Spinne (The
Spider)," as a "consultant" to
rightwing Latin American mili-
tary dictatorships supported by
the U.S.
with the CIA was confirmed by
Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld who
charged, in an article in the Paris
daily Le Monde of Feb. 15, that
the CIA not only employed
Barbie as a special agent but
enabled him to flee to Latin
America by granting a "tem-
porary travel document" regis-
tered under the name of Klaus
Altmann, the name under which
he illegally obtained Bolivian
citizenship in 1952.
According to Klarsfeld, the
CIA document enabled Barbie to
obtain an International Red
Cross pass in Genoa. Although
twice sentenced to death in ab-
sentia by French courts for the
deportation of French Jews and
the murder of French resistance
leader Jean Moulin, Barbie ap-
parently visited the United
States on more than one occasion
after his escape from Europe
without interference from U.S.
Reports that he visited New
Orleans and Miami under the
alias Klaus Altmann were said to
be supported by U.S. Immigra-
tion Service documents. Last
Nov. 11. one Robert Wilson, a
self-admitted international jewel
thief told ABC-TV News that he
knew Barbie in Bolivia and that
the Nazi "freely confessed" his
war crimes and his involvement
with the CIA.
ACCORDING to Wilson,
Barbie claimed he visited New
Orleans and San Francisco in the
course of his work for the CIA,
travelling on a Bolivian diplo-
matic passport. The CIA refused
to comment at the time.
The JTA reported on Mar. 8
that nine Congressmen wrote to
President Reagan urging him to
initiate a special investigation of
charges that the U.S. govern-
ment protected Nazi war
criminals after World War II,
Barbie in particular. The letter,
drafted by Rep. William Lehman
(D.. Fla.) and signed by seven
Democrats and two Republican
Congressmen, followed publica-
tion of the allegations by the JTA
and the other disclosures.
Attorney General William
French Smith reportedly was re-
luctant to enter the case but
Herzog's 61-67 victory
clearly the result of defections by
seven coalition MKs who cannot
be identified because the vote
was by secret ballot. Begin urged
his Likud supporters to forget
the indignity of defeat as quickly
as possible and exhorted them
not even to consider the idea of
resigning or forcing early elec-
tions. Likud's term of office ex-
pires in 1985.
BUT MANY staunch Likud
loyalists are furious over what
they regard as a betrayal of some
coalition members who, they fear,
cannot be trusted to support the
government in the future. MKs
Ronni Milo and Eliahu Ben-Elis-
sar, both of Likud's Herut fac-
tion, have called for the break-up
of the coalition and new elections.
Milo announced that he was
resigning as deputy chairman of
the coalition Knesset faction be-
cause the coalition could not
function in an atmosphere of dis-
trust. But Begin, though visibly
stunned when the election results
were announced, has taken a
philosophical view. "C'est La
Vie," he is reported to have re-
marked to his colleagues soon
after the vote.
He told Likud MKs that their
response to the defeat should be
to recognize that it was part of
the democratic process and to
send their best wishes to Presi-
dent-elect Herzog. The Likud
Knesset faction formally offered
its congratulations st a late ses-
BEGIN'S AIDES said that he
will not seek early elections
without the consent of all of his
coalition partners. At least two,
the National Religious Party and
Tami, are fearful that early elec-
tions would be disastrous for
Begin is also said to be con-
cerned that if he resigns, forcing
early elections, some of Likud's
coalition partners anxious not to
go to the polls at this time, would
bolt and set up an alternative
coalition with the Labor Align-
ment. Such a move could estab-
lish a Labor-led government
without elections.
That concern is believed to be
uppermost on the minds of most
Likud MKs because of the coali-
tion defections. Likud loyalists
have branded them "renegades."
Their suspicions are directed at
the smaller coalition parties
although one or two members of
Likud's Liberal Party faction are
believed to be among the seven
ONE THEORY heard in the
Knesset lobby was that some of
the defectors were NRP members
who supported Herzog as a
gesture of appreciation for
Labor's support of the NRP-
backed candidates for Chief
Rabbi in last week's Chief Rabbi-
nate elections.
Senate Adopts Resolution
Declaring Remembrance
Week Apr. 10-14
WASHINGTON (JTA) The Senate has
adopted a resolution declaring the week of April 10-16 as a
a-'mfstage'-rm WUharcffi Week of Remembrance for the 40th anniversary of the
the Presidents National Security Warsaw Ghetto uprising. The House is expected to adopt
a similar resolution which also calls on the President to
Adviser. The Justice Depart-
ment's initial position was said to
be based on the belief that no
prosecution was likely to result
from an investigation of events of
nearly 40 years ago.
Justice Department sources
said the investigation probably
would be conducted by Allan
Ryan Jr.. head of the Depart-
ments Office of Special Investi-
gations (OSI). Ryan has been re-
sponsible for the successful
prosecution of Nazi war criminals
living in the U.S. resulting, in
several cases, of revocation of
citizenship and the initiation of
deportation proceedings.

THE RESOLUTION, introduced by Senators
Charles Percy (R., 111.) and Claiborne Pell (D., R.I.) and
co-sponsored by 45 other Senators, notes that the uprising
"by the besieged and outnumbered Jews of the Warsaw
Ghetto*' demonstrated "their courage and heroism" to the
world and "showed the world for all time that the forces of
freedom and liberty cannot long be suppressed by the
forces of tyranny.'' It added that "their valor and their
faith gave urgency to the creation of the free State of

statesman: "Think of it. Seven
million outlawed human beings
who have begun to tremble. After
what has happened we have no
right to reproach them with their
fear. Thev dare not arm. they are
not defended, they feel them
serves surrendered up and to
what a rabble."
IN HIS anguish at failing to
win Palestine for the persecuted
Jews, Heral toyed that year with
accepting a British offer of a
"temporary" Jewish homeland in
East Africa, an idea which almost
wrecked the Zionist movement,
founded only six years earlier.
Chaim Nachman Bialik, then
30 years old. drew different con-
clusions from Herzl. After visit-
ing Kishinev to interview the
survivors, he felt that the Jews
could at least have tried to defend
themselves and his over-riding
emotion was one of shame.
In his poem, "In the City of
Slaughter," he thundered:
"Great is the sorrow and great is
the shame and which of the
two is greater?"
AMONG THOSE stirred by
his words was Vladimir
Jabotinsky, like Bialik, an
Odessa Jew, but one who until
then had devoted himself to
Russian culture and letters. After
Kishinev, Jabotinsky identified
himself entirely with his fellow
Jews, with Zionism and the need
for self-defense.
The Kishinev ma an acre and
Bialik *s poem, (Jabotinsky was
to write 21 years later) marked
"the birth of a new Jewish men-
tality." It was the first time in
modern Jewish history that the
main feeling provoked in the
community was one of shame
rather than horror and grief, he
wrote in an introduction to an
English edition of Bialik's works.
"The revival of Maccabean
tendencies in the ghetto really
dates from that poem: the self-
defense organizations which
sprang up everywhere in Russia
to meet the new pogrom wave
two years later, the shomrim
movement in Palestine, even the
Jewish Legion which fought for
the Holy Land in 1918 they are
all Bialik's children," Jabotinsky
wrote. Had he lived long enough,
Jabotinsky would doubtless have
added the uprising in the Warsaw
Ghetto to that list.
DESPITE THE immediate
shock caused by the Kishinev
pogrom, it was far from an iso-
lated incident, in the months
which followed programs erupted
one after the other in White
Russia and the Ukraine, abating
only when Russia found itself at
war with Japan the next year and
when Jews were being pressed
into the Czar's armies.
There was also a second
pogrom in Kishinev in October
1906. In some places, though,
Jews began to show more
courage. In August 1903. Jewish
defenders acquitted themselves
well when a pogrom broke out at
Gomel, in White Russia, where
20,000 Jews farmed half the
town's population.
Despite its blood-stained
name, though, Kishinev seems to
have retained a magnetic attrac-
tion to Jews in southern Russia.
There had been 60,000 Jews there
in 1902. Many imigrated after the
BUT EVEN so, there were
some 66,000 Jews in the town at
the time of the Nazi invasion of
the Soviet Union in 1941. Of
these, 53,000 were murdered and
by 1947. there were ordy 6.000
Jews in Kishinev.
Amazingly. the Encyclopedia
Judaica put the 1970 figure back
at 60.000. though this has cer-
tainly been depleted by the large
scale-emigrations of the past 13
Israel Denies Selling Weapons
To Palestinians for Self-Defense
Recent reports that the Is-
rael Defense Force has
issued arms to Palestinians
in southern Lebanon to
enable them to protect
themselves against a pos-
sible attack by Lebanese
Christians are denied by Is-
raeli military sources. The
sources say that such
weapons have neither been
supplied nor even re-
They admit, however, that
many Palestinians, especially
those living in the camps around
Beirut and in Tyre and Sidon, are
probably afraid of violence
against them on the part of the
Lebanese, particularly the right-
wing Phalangists.
"For vears. the Lebanc
Christians had been attacked and
mistreated by the Palestinians
who had settled amongst them
and finally, under the PLO, had
slaughtered many of them,
wiping out entire villages and
towns such as Damour south of
Beirut," the sources say. "The
Christians were the underdogs
for years. Now their position is
reversed and it might be only
natural that some of them might
think of revenge."

the IDF can do to protect all the
Palestinians in the camps. This is
a task for the Lebanese central
government, with its army and
police force.
But the Israelis are obviously
doing more than they will admit
openly to keep their eyes and ears
open in and around the camps
and to take action if required.
They recognize that, whatever
happens and whatever the legal
limits of what Israel can do, Isra-
el would be blamed if there were a
Christian attack on Palestinians,
such as happened in the camps.
ISRAEL'S MORAL responsi-
bility though no direct respon-
sibility was involved led to the
establishment of the commission
of inquiry and the implementa-
tion of its proposals.
The Palestinians are, in any
case, probably not entirely de-
fenseless. Despite what happened
at Sabra and Shatila, and despite
widespread IDF searches for hid-
den PLO arms caches, both
Christiar.s and Palestinians
probably have more weapons
than they are prepared to admit.
And this may be the reasons
they have not formally asked the
Israelis for arms even though
the legal receipt and possesion of
weapons would be of more value
than arms obtained and held ille-
Military sources admit that a
dozen or so bodies, mainly of Pal-
estinians, were discovered near
camps a month or so ago. But
since those widely-published re-
ports, no more murders have
come to light. The sources say
that it is still not clear whether
those deaths were due to Leba-
nese revenge in an organized
manner, or the result of indivi-
dual acts of revenge, or even of a
family vendetta.

Lawyer Denies Barbie
May Attempt Pardon
On Medical Grounds
Klaus Barbie's court ap-
pointed lawyer, Etienne de
la Servette, angrily denied
that the Nazi war criminal
will attempt to obtain a
pardon or Presidential
grace on medical grounds.
De la Servette, refering to
some newspaper reports
published here said "such
rumors are baseless."
The papers had said Barbie's
daughter. Mrs. Ute Messner,
would try to obtain a pardon. De
la Servette retorted that "such
rumours only provoke hate
against an innocent woman
whose only fault is to have Barbie
as her father."
Barbie, who underwent sur-
gery for an intestinal
obstruction, was reported to be
recovering "as well as can be ex-
pected." His surgeon. Dr. Roger
Lombard-Platet, said "he ob-
viously has a strong constitution
for a 69-year-old man."
BARBIE WAS expelled from
Bolivia on February 5 and turned
over to French authorities. He is
awaiting trial on a charge of
"crimes against humanity" for
his war-time activities while
serving as gestapo chief for Lyon
in 1942-44.
The investigating magistrate's
office said that the preliminary
hearings will have to be post-
poned until Barbie leaves the
hospital and returns to his prison
cell at Lyons St. Joseph's high
security jail. He is convalesce
at the Edouard Henriot Me&
cal facility, where he ia Q. |
