Shamir Says Israel Will Know
About Peace in Two Weeks
! Israel will know within
I two weeks whether an
agreement with Lebanon is
at hand, Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir has re-
portedly told the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Securi-
ty Committee.
He said the pace of the tripar-
I titc talks among Israel, Lebanon
and the U.S. has been accelerated
to four meetings a week. The
negotiating teams had been
meeting on the average of twice
weekly for the past four months,
alternating between sites in Leb-
anon and in Israel. Shamir con-
firmed to the Knesset members
that the outstanding unresolved
issue is the future status of Is-
rael's ally in Lebanon, Maj. Saad
seemed to share Shamir's view
that an agreement could be im-
minent. Avi Pazner, spokesman
for the Israeli delegation, said
after the round of talks in Kiryat
Shemona, that the sin qua non
for Israel's agreement to with-
draw from Lebanon was a Syrian
commitment to pull out its forces
at the same time.
Pazner said the head of the Is-
raeli delegation, David Kunche,
made that point forcefully and
urged the Lebanese to convey it
unequivocally to Syria.
Shamir reportedly gave the
Knesset committee his analysis
of Andrei Gromyko's references
to the Lebanese situation at a
press conference in Moscow.
Gromyko, formerly the Soviet
Foreign Minister, was recently
promoted to First Deputy Prime
Minister of the USSR.
SHAMIR NOTED that he had
referred to the withdrawal of all
foreign forces from Lebanon and
implicitly criticized extremist
Arab governments that refuse to
recognize Israel's right to exist.
Israeli officials have privately
welcomed Gromyko's remarks.
But they noted that the Soviet
statesman was apparently
making it clear that the Soviet
Union must be taken into ac-
count in a negotiated withdrawal
of foreign forces from Lebanon.
By echoing the American for-
mulation, Gromyko was estab-
lishing common ground between
the two super-powers on the Leb-
anon negotiations, the Israeli of-
ficials suggested.
No Attack on Syria DueArens
Defense Minister Moshe Arens
iissured Knesset members Sun-
day that Israel had no intention
i" attack Syria, though he warn-
<<1 (hut if Syria escalated the
siluatktn in the north, for what-
ever reasons. "The scope of the
Israeli reaction would be dictated
>y Israel."
Arens called on Syria's leaders
to confer with Israeli leaders over
peace talks between the two
countries. He also called on King
Hussein of Jordan to join the
peace process with Israel but re-
jected a freeze on Jewish settle-
ment activity in the occupied
territories as a condition for Jor-
dan's participation.

In celebration of Artswatch
'83, The Playmakers Theatre
Company will present the
shocking and powerful drama,
The Transfiguration of Benno
Blimpie," on Saturday, April 16.
The production, being staged by
Playmakers' artistic director,
Robert Hatch, will be presented
at 4 p.m. at the David Falk The-
atre, located on Kennedy Boule-
vard directly across from" the
University of Tampa campus.
Admission to the show is free.
The one act play by Albert In-
naurato deals with' a sensitive,
- 400 lb. young man who is metho-
dically eating himself to death.
Barricaded in a room,-Benno tries
to justify his own suicide by
sharing with the audience painful
scenes from his childhood.
The author, Albert Innaurato,
has been recognized as one of
America's most innovative
young playwrights. His most
famous work, "Gemini," ran for
over 1,000 performances on
Broadway. "Benno Blimpie" was
presented in the Astor Place The-
atre in New York in 1977 and is
currently enjoying successful
revival at Playwrights Horizons
in New York City.
The play contains strong lan-
guage and scenes of deviant sex-
ulity. and The Playmakers warn
that the production is not in-
fendpd for children or those who
might be offended by such

trie Clinic and in the Pediatric
Cancer Clinic.
Under her leadership Camp
Kemo, a summer camp for
children being treated for cancer,
has become a reality. What began
in 1980 as a day camp has now
become a week-long experience
for children who would probably
otherwise miss out on a summer
camp experience.
Ms. Friedman was one of many
to dream of a Ronald McDonald
House for Columbia. She has
been actively involved
as a
member of the board of directors
of Pediatric Family Services of
the Midlands, Inc., the non-profit
organization responsible for the
house. The Ronald McDonald
House will be a home away from
home for children and their
families being treated for serious
illnesses at area hospitals.
This year marked the fourth
annual statewide competition for
the Outstanding Young Woman
Award. Ms. Friedman was
selected by out-of-state judges
from a field of 12 entries.
The current Playmakers pro-
duction, "A Lesson From Aloes,"
raises issues about political rep-
ression in South Africa, and the
human costs of surviving in a po-
lice state generally. On Friday,
April IE and Sunday, April 17,
audience members attending
those performances will be in-
vited to remain in the theatre fol-
lowing the show to hear or partic-
ipate in a panel discussion about
these issues.

Youth Aliyah Eases Absorption of Ethiopian Youngsters
"It's good to be among Jews,''
Abraham declared. "We want to
be good soldiers, good citizens,
and sports champions. Israel will
be proud of us."
Abraham is one of 35 Ethiop-
ian Jewish youngsters who spent
last summer in "camp" at Tal-
piot Hadera Youth Aliyah Vil-
lage. Like the others in the group,
he'd arrived in Israel two years
before, and spoke fluent Hebrew.
Recalling his arrival, he said, "It
was like a dream. We clapped our
hands and we sang. The older
ones kissed the soil of Eretz Isra-
el. Israeli authorities were
waiting for us, they invited us to
eat and provided us with accom-
What were the first real diffi-
culties? "The language," Yossef
replies. "I understood nothing
around me. At school it was very
difficult, but the Israeli kids
helped us a lot."
David, when asked how he
liked life in Israel, answered, "I
enjoy it here. I study in the
Youth Aliyah school during the
year. Here, in Talpiot Village, we
mix with Israeli kids and that's
very important to me. We want
to be like Israeli youth, exactly
like them."
Daniel spoke enviously of sev-
eral of the older boys who were
leaving Talpiot Hadera; they'd
been accepted in theYemin Orde
Village in the Galilee, where they
will study electronics.
David started to talk about his
family who were living in the
south of Israel. He'd come to Tal-
piot Hadera from the Netiv Ha-
Maale Youth Village, located
near his family's home. In Ethio-
pia. David had attended a non-
Jewish school, and studied
English. Did all the parents send
their children to school? "No,
most of the young ones in our
place were shepherds." Was there
any Jewish life at home? "Oh,
yes." replied Daniel, "we kept
shabbat. We did not work, did
not light any fire, and we lit can-
dles on Friday evening and made
Kiddush. On Shabbat morning
we went to pray in our synajro
gue." ^*
Like most young healthy chil-
dren, the boys at Talpiot Hadera
are active in sports, especially
basketball. The various Youth
Aliyah Village teams play
against each other, tournament-
style. "My team," says Yossef
proudly, "is the football youth
champion of Israel." "We played
against the Maccabi Hadera
team." adds Solomon, "and we
won twice. We got two medals!"
The boys are proud of their
sports prowess, and they are
confident that Ethiopians will be
Israel's future champions.
When asked for suggestions on
how to make integration easier
for future Ethiopian Olim. the
boys all agreed, "Let them meet
other Ethiopians like us who
have already integrated. Then,
tell the parents that if they want
to settle in Beer Sheva or Netivot
(in the South) because they can
Swiss Radio Told Airing
Of Begin-Sharon Invective
Was Bad Program Decision
GENEVA (JTA) A commission set up to
consider a Jewish protest against a German-language
Swiss Radio broadcast which said Premier Menachem
Begin and former Defense Minister Ariel Sharon found
justification for Israel's invasion of Lebanon in "Mein
Kampf," ruled this week that the radio had no mandate to
broadcast such a comment.
THE SAME COMMISSION, however, rejected a
complaint by Jews in Zurich that a French-language
television film on the war in Lebanon was biased because
it showed only the destruction caused by Israel's armed
iorces. The commission concluded in that case that the
tilm only tried to show the reality in Lebanon.
The protest against the radio broadcast was filed by
the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities with the
director general of Swiss radio and television. The
program in question was a satirical radio "magazine'' on
world events.
Army Officers Receive Medals
JERUSALEM (JTA) Eleven army officers and
soldiers received medals at ceremonies at the President's
residence here Thursday for bravery in action during the
war in Lebanon last summer. Another 11 were awarded
citations at separate ceremonies at Air Force and
Intelligence Corps bases.
The air men and intelligence officers were not
identified to the public for fear of possible consequences
should they ever fall into enemy hands.

find work there, let them send
their children to the Youth Ali-
yah Villages. It's better not to be
left alone with your own group.
It's better to mix with Israeli
kids, they help us with our home-
work, and make friends with us."
Who would be willing to be a
"madrich" (group leader) for new
immigrants? Their hands shot
up. "Well do it. We'll do it,"
they shouted.
Despite the hardships in-
volved, and some setbacks, Israel
has developed an effective
program for integrating their
newest immigrants. Youth Ali-
yah, which has been caring for
immigrant Jewish youth since
1933. when it was established to
bring the endangered Jewish
children of Germany to Palestine,
is a major factor in helping the
Ethiopian youngsters adjust to
their new environment. Close to
400 children and adolescents are
in attendance at 21 Youth Aliyah
schools, where they are receiving
language instruction, education,
and vocational training. The
voung children (6-12) attend the
local religious state schools.
Youth between the ages of 12-18
are taken to Youth Aliyah's reli-
gious schools after a period of ad-
justment at an integration cen-
ter, the first stop for all newcom-
ers. Six integration centers were
operating rest Spring, serving
over 900 Olim.
While the majority of young,
people in Youth Aliyah today are
born in Israel, and come from
disadvantaged families, Youth
Aliyah still regards its task in
absorbing and educating new im-
migrant children as a major ob-
jective. The Ethiopian children
who arrive in Israel are often un-
dernourished, illiterate and ter-
ribly frightened. Youth Aliyah
helps them regain a sense of se-
curity and of self-esteem, bridg-
ing the gap between them and
other children.
As Israels social problems
changed over the years, Youth
Aliyah adapted its programs to
meet the new challenges. Its
basic strategy has, nonetheless,
remained consistent: caring for
children mainly in residential in-
stitutions, youth villages, and
kibbutzim. In 1982. dose to
18.000 young people, mostly in
the 12-18 age group, were cared
tor in 34 youth villages and
boarding schools, 109 yeshivas
(the largest group in Youth
Aliyah), over 200 kibbutzim, a
number of moshavim, and 20 full-
day centers. Students unable to
cope with the usual educational
framework are cared for in six
residential educational insti-
tutions operated and financed by
Youth Aliyah.
Youth Aliyah s activities and
facilities are funded from various
sources. Over 90 percent of its
*52 million budget for fiscal year
1982-83 came from the United
Jewish Appeal-United Israel
Appeal in the U.S., and similar
campaigns world-wide. Special
Youth Aliyah committees raised
about $5 million toward the total.
The Jewish Agency contrib-
utes between 60 percent 100 per-
cent of the actual cost of main-
tenance of youngsters in Youth
Aliyah. according to the type of
institution, and whether or not it
a owned by the Agency. In those
facilities where Youth Aliyah
students make up at least 40 per-
cent of the population, the
Agency also contributes to the
costs for renovations and repairs,
m addition to food and clothing
expenses, celebrations (Bar Mitz-
vahs. etc.) and a variety of
miscellaneous expenditures.
This year Youth Aliyah is cele-
brating its Golden Jubilee,
marking 50 years of service to the
Jewish people. Through the
programs and facilities of Youth
Aliyah, supported by the Jewish
Agency and others, over 200,000
Jewish youngsters from all over
the world have found new lives
and hope for a better future, in

three and thirty days ... But if she bear a maid-child, then she

of her purification are fulfilled ... she shall bring a lamb of the
first year for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtle-
dove, for a sin-offering, unto the door of the tent of meeting
unto the priest" (Leviticus 12.2-6). Suspected lepers are to be
brought to the priest, who quarantines the case for seven days.
A careful description of the varieties of leprosy is followed by
rules for the leper's identification and isolation. "And the leper
in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and the hair of
his head shall go loose, and he shall cover his upper lip, and shall
cry: 'Unclean, unclean.' All the days wherein the plague is in
him he shall be unclean; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone
without the camp shall his dwelling be" (Leviticus 13.45-461.
"And the priest shod look, and behold, if the plague of leprosy
be healed in the leper"
METZORA This portion describes the laws for the purifica-
tion of the leper after he is healed. "Then shall the priest
command to take for him that is to be cleansed two living clean
birds, and cedar-wood, and scarlet, and hyssop. And the priest
shall command to kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over
running water. As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the
cedar-wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them
and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over
the running water. And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be

sr and chairman of the
Holocaust Memorial

(day that if the world

about it.
Wiesel, who noted that on
11, 1946, he was one of the
ivors liberated at Dachau by
U.S. Army, said that for
years after 1946, "the
Rvors were like outcasts" and
' story was not being heard."

le as some 16,000 survivors
their children arrived in
shington for the first Ameri-
Gathering of Jewish Holo-
st Survivors. The four-day
tiering, which also commemo
the 40th anniversary of the
rsaw Ghetto Uprising, of-
]]y opened with a ceremony
[the Capitol Centre in Land-
fer, Md., which was addressed
iPresident Reagan; Benjamin
i, president of the gathering;
el, its honorary chairman;
I others.
Earlier, a "Survivors Village"
opened at the Washington
avention Center with the
_ of a mezuzoh. Thousands
ersons, from elderly survivors
)abes in arms, walked through
Center meeting people they
not seen in years, searching
relatives and friends through
omputer system especially set
up for the Gathering.
In his press club address,
Wiesel noted that the greatest
shock for the survivors after their
liberation, was when they learned
that the world had known what
was happening. He told the
reporters present that their
precedessors had done their job
in reporting the various atrocities
committed during World War II
but the leaders of the free world
had failed to act.
"I THINK OP this country
with pride," Wiesel said. But he
said that during the Holocaust
period the actions of the U.S. and
particularly of that of its Presi-
dent, Franklin Delano Roosevelt,
were not moments worthy of
praise. He especially pointed to
the episode of the St. Louis, the
ship filled with Jews fleeing Ger-
many which was turned away
from the U.S.
Wiesel criticized the U.S. and
British for not bombing the death
camps. He said that when he was
in Auschwitz, he and others could
see the nearby munitions fac-
tories being bombed and prayed
the planes would also hit the
camps, but they didn't. He added
that the Soviet Union also has to
be criticized because its troops
were even closer to tbe camps and
they too did nothing.
Wiesel said the museum which
the Holocaust Council will build
near the Washington Monument
will be a living memorial to the
Holocaust. He said it is needed to
educate future generations. Vice
President George Bush officially
turned over the keys to the land
at a ceremony at the Capitol
Wednesday. Wiesel stressed that
Falashas Celebrate
group of Israelis celebrated Pass-
over with Falasha Jews in Ethio-
pia in a visit organized by a Tel
Aviv tour company. Among
them was Labor MK Ora Namir.
This was the first time since 1974
that such a visit was undertaken.
The group brought with them
wine and matza for distribution
among the local Jews. The group
is due back this weekend.
the museum will be built entirely
with U.S. funds.
HE SAID the U.S. is the only
country outside of Israel to have
a memorial to the victims of the
Holocaust because the U.S.
government end people recognize
that "whatever happens to one
people, affects all people"
When asked why the memorial
is only to Jewish victims, Wiesel
replied: "Only the Jewish people
were destined for total destruc-
tion by their killers." He said
that only the Jews were singled
out "to die" just for being Jew-
ish. "If we remember the Jewish
victims, we remember the
others," he said
Wiesel noted that he
popularized the term "Holo-
caust" to be used for the tragedy
that befell the Jewish people, tn
World War II. He said he was
now "sorry" he had done so
because the word was 'being
"trivialized." He pledged to see
to it that a "memorial-museum
that is to be built in Washington
will not be trivialized or "politi-

1983 National Jewish Book
Award for History, was pub-
lished because of the foresight of

Book Awards on Professor
Yerushalmi and the other win-
ning authors on Sunday, April
24, at 2:30 p.m., at the Central
Synagogue Community House in
New York City.
Zakhor is made up of four lec-
tures, originally delivered by
Yerushalmi at the University of
Washington as the Samuel and
Althea Stroum Lectures in
Jewish Studies.
Stroum, a businessman, com-
munity leader and philan-

Steven is attending United

Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi
Jewish Federation of Greater
Seattle, established the Samuel
and Althea Stroum Philanthropic
Fund. Recognizing the Stroums'
deep interest in Jewish history
and culture, the Federation's
Board of Directors, in coopera-
tion with the Jewish Studies Pro-
gram of the University of Wash-
ington, established an annual lec-
tureship at the University known
as the Samuel and Althea Stroum
Lectureship in Jewish Studies.
Murray Shiff, executive direc-
tor of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Seattle, related the back-
ground to JWB. Some years ago
Shiff approached Stroum with
the proposal for a lectureship in
Jewish studies at the University
of Washington. He had made
similar proposals to others.
"Many individuals are persons
of affluence." Shiff told JWB,
"but it took someone who is also
a person of vision Samuel
Stroum to see the importance
of this Jewish educational ap-
proach and to provide the endow-
ment to help make it happen."
In Zakhor, Yerushalmi con-
fronts the reader with an ap-
parent paradox: although Ju-
daism throughout the ages was
absorbed with the meaning of
history, historiography played at
best a subordinate role among
the Jews and often no role at all.
Concomitantly, while memory of
the past was always a central
component of Jewish experience,
the historian was not its primary
Yerushalmi writes: "We
should at least want to know
what kind of history the Jews
have valued, what out of their
past they chose to remember, and
how they preserved, transmitted
and revitalized that which was
