"This will be the only showing

"It is something that I en-

Mike Levine, President of the

the program and Rabbi
teneth Berger, President of the
Tampa Rabbinic Association will
introduce the film. The proceeds
of the ticket sales will benefit the
Simon Wiesenthal Center and
further the local Holocaust edu-
cational activities. The film was
produced by the Wiesenthal Cen-
ter and is narrated by Elizabeth
Taylor and Orson Welles. The
funds raised will enable the
Wiesenthal Center to widely dis-
tribute the film throughout the
United States raising the level of
awareness as to the facts and
events of the Holocaust.
According to the Wiesenthal
Center, the experience is
dramatic, compelling, drawing,
shocking, sometimes heart-rend-
ing, and even wrenching. But its
purpose is to challenge and in-
spire. To be sure, it is not an easy
story to assimilate; but our
future and the future of our chil-
dren depend on how well we tell
it. This is why Elizabeth Taylor
and Orson Welles have donated
their time, their voices, and their
considerable talents in narrating
"We expect a large turnout on
May 16 from the Jewish and non-
Jewish community and you are
encouraged to purchase your
tickets in advance," Kalish said.

Editor's Note: Dr. Hans Juer-
gensen prepared this special
report on the Washington, D.C.
Holocaust Survivors Gathering
for The Jewish Floridian of
Tampa. We present it now as
Tampa prepares to "remember"
with the presentation of the film
"Genocide" on Monday evening,
May 16. We thought it would be
necessary to "trim" the article.
In truth, we submit every word
as submitted by Dr. Juergensen.
By DR. HANS JUERGENSEN
Special Adviser to the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council
It was a unique historical
event. Between 11 and 12
thousand survivors and their
children even grandchildren
came from all over the nation to
commemorate the Warsaw
Ghetto uprising and to be present
when the President, Vice Presi-
dent, and the Speaker of the
House pledged their support for
the future Holocaust Memorial
The Washington Convention
Center, a huge complex, housed a
"Survivor's Village," exhibits of
books and art works and message
centers where participants could
trace long-lost friends through
Meeting rooms were set aside
for films and lectures. The second
generation had its say in large
and small sessions, while their
survivor parents listened.
The Press. Radio and T.V.
were everywhere in evidence, in-
terviewing and reporting. Cere-
monial occasions were both
solemn and impressive. There
were tears; there was also laugh-
ter. Every imaginable emotion
What was most evident and
heartwarming was a joy of life
among these men and women
who had gone through the still
unbelievable crucible of the con-
centration camps. The human
spirit remains unquenchable in
these remarkable people.
As a special adviser to the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council I
had certain perogatives and spe-
cial security clearance, this
meant that I was physically close
to the main speakers during the
ceremonies and could roam about
the meeting areas. My "Adviser"
tag was taken seriously by sur-
vivors who came up to me and in-
quired: "Pliz. sir, where is de bat
room?" Or the telephone .
however, I also could direct them
to the message centers and com-
puters. Thus amused and
amazed, I met many individuals,
some of whom told me their story
and asked me for mine.
Among the thousands, I finally
espied Judy Pressman, Alfred
Wasserberger and Rabbi and
Mrs. Bryn (formerly of Tampa,
now of Miami).
(On Tuesday, the Holocaust
Council met for an extended
planning session on the Museum.
We have the building. Now we
need funds to rebuild the in-
On Monday evening, the Jew-
ish masses were (bussed) to
Maryland where we filled the
Bullets' Arena to hear President
Reagan and Elie Wiesel. Mr. Ben
Meed, the organizer of the
gathering and a Ghetto fighter,
introduced the proceedings.
President Reagan gave what
many considered as the best ad-
dress of his career. He em-
phasized the importance of the
gathering and, at one point, ad-
mitted that the free nations had
been guilty of indifference toward
the fate of European Jewry. He
also included a brief commercial
for funds toward the Memorial
Museum. When he pledged sup-
port for Israel, voices were heard
demanding fighter plans.
The President and Mrs.
Reagan then received a scroll
with 15,000 names of survivors.
The Navy Band played
"Hatikvah" and "The Star
Spangled Banner." I have never
heard these two anthems sung
with greater fervor.
Elie Wiesel next addressed the
assembly in his inimitable style.
He strongly urged the President:
"Do not pressure Israel!"
The rest of the evening, all four
hours of it, was taken up by other
prominent speakers and musical
presentations as well as a multi-
Tuesday was filled with pro-
grams on post-Holocaust prob-
lems. The evening featured a con-
cert of Jewish music. Theodor
Bikel was one of the performers.
"I would pay a hundred dollars
for that treat," I was told over
and over again.
On Wednesday morning, the
survivors visited Arlington
Cemetery to "thank those
Americans who fought and died
for our freedom."
By 11:30 a.m., the west front
of the Capitol was roped off to
seat VIP's and to accomodate a
platform for Vice President Bush,
Speaker "Tip" O'Neill, Elie
Wiesel and other participants in
the transfer of the Old Audit
Building from the Government of
the United States to the Holo-
caust Memorial Council. In front
of the platform stretched a sea of
survivors, sitting and standing
on the lawn. The cherry blossoms
glowed: the sky was clear; the
temperature comfortable. Seated
beside the speaker's dais, in a
section for council members and
members of Congress, I thought
of how truly marvelously this day
exemplified the best our Ameri-
can Democracy represents.
Three rows behind me, Senator
Ted Kennedy had joined the pro-
ceedings for a while before re-
turning to his committee meet-
Vice President Bush, in a fine
speech, re-emphasized the im-
portance of the need for "remem-
bering the Holocaust" and he
handed an enormous key to Elie
Wiesel. It was another great
moment. "Tip" O'Neill added his
sentiments in his own beautifully
worded address, and this time,
though other speakers followed,
no one repeated what had been
Unfortunately, I had to forego
the final ceremonies of the
gathering because of my return
flight. But, even so, I was full of
awe at the significance of these
three days. And I am deeply
grateful for the opportunity of
being a witness to one of Jewry's
most positive experiences.

Center for Disease Control in At-

initially either by psychological
factors or by sub-toxic exposure
to H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide). Its
subsequent spread was mediated
by psychogenic factors. Newspa-

contributed to this spread. The
epidemic ended after West Bank
schools were closed."
deputy spokesman Alan Rom-

the 36-page report and its 12
pages of supplementary material
except to read the conclusions by
the two American epidemiolog-
Landrigan and Miller said that
the epidemic began Mar. 21 when
"approximately 50 cases of acute
illness of unknown origin oc-
curred among adolescent girls in
a secondary school in the village
ot Araba, northern West Bank."
They noted that among the char-
acteristics of the illness were
headaches, blurred vision,
vertigo, nausea, abdominal pain
and weakness of the limbs.
By Apr. 3, when the epidemic
ended, there were 943 cases in
widely separated towns on the
West Bank: 660 of the cases were
among high school girls. The
others who were ill were adults
and a small number of Israeli sol-
diers on the West Bank. The two
Americans stressed that "no one
died" and that none of the ill-
nesses were reported in refugee

Were we thrilled to hear about 10 year old Joshua Kreitzer,
son of Dr. Stephen and Laura Kreitzer. Joshua, who is in the
sixth grade at the Hillel School, competed in the Annual Hills-
borough County Spelling Bee on April 30, held at the Tampa
Theatre. Josh had arrived at this final competition by first com-
peting to represent his school, and then going through several
elimination rounds in the county competition. We are very im-
pressed and proud to add that Joshua came in third in the finals!
What a feather in your cap, Joshua- we think you are simply
marvelous (spooled t-e-r-r-i-f-i-c)!

rabbinical leader said that a
resolution on parental
. transmission of Jewish
identity to children of
mixed marriages, adopted
last month at the conven-
tion of the Reform rab-
binate, has been widely
' misinterpreted, misunder-
stood and misreported by
the media, both general and
Rabbi Joseph Glaser, execu-
tive vice president of the Central
Conference of American Rabbis
(CCAR), said that the intent ol
the proposal was to give both the
non-Jewish and Jewish parent an
equal opportunity to arrange for
conditions to help assure a Jew-
ish upbringing for their child.
HE EMPHASIZED that the
resolution, approved at the
CCAR's 94th annual convention
in Los Angeles, did not seek to
restore partrilinear transmission
of Jewish identity, as had been
widely reported by the print and
What the resolution does pro-
pose, Glaser said, is that the child
of a mixed marriage is to be con-
sidered with the consent and
the cooperation of both parents
to be under the "presumption"
of Jewish descent and that this
"presumption" is to be validated
"through appropriate and timely
public and formal acts of identifi-
cation with the Jewish people."
The resolution listed the
mitzvot which constitute re-
Suired acts of validation as in-
uding entry into the covenant,
which Glaser said meant ritual
circumsicion of the male infant;
study of Jewish sacred lore;
acquisition of a Hebrew name;
and Bar and Bas Mitzvah par-
ticipation. Parents are required
to maintain a Jewish home.
GLASER said that the judge
who, for a particular individual,
will determine that the
"presumption" has been vali-
dated by adequate performance
of such "public and formal act* of
identification," will be the
Reform rabbi who becomes in-
volved in such a situation,"such
as a case in which the child, as an
adult, may wish to join his con-
gregation or to be married by him
to Jewish mate. \
The troublesome iseue for
Reform Judaism of the problem
of whether a child of a mixed
marriage may be considered Jew-
ish had been codified in two
earlier actions. One is a resolution
adopted by a 1947 CCAR con-
vention. The second is a state-
ment in the 1961 edition of the'
CCAR Rabbis Manual.
Glaser stressed that both the
1947 resolution and the Rabbis
Manual statement focussed on
mixed marriages in which the
mother was Jewish and the father
was not. He said emphatically
that there was no question in
those two documents about the
Jewish mother determining the
Jewish identity of her children.
THE CURRENT radical break
with past practice in such mar-
riages, Glaser said, is that the
1983 resolution makes both
parents equal in accepting the
"presumption" that their child is
Jewish and that the "presump-
tion" of Jewish identity must
bewith the consent and par-
ticipation of both parentsvali-
dated by such public acts, even if
the mother is Jewish.
The validity of the ancient
practice still stringently ob-
served in Conservative and
Orthodox Judaism that the
mother transmit Jewish identity,
is continued in the 1947 resolu-
tion and in the 1961 Rabbis
Manual, but it is terminated in
the 1983 CCAR resolution.
The 1961 manual declares that
"Jewish law recognizes a person
as Jewish if his (or her) mother is
Jewish, even though the father is
not a Jew." Such a child may be
admitted to synagogue member-
ship and enter into a marital rela-
tionship with a Jew "provided he
(or she) has not been reared in or
formally admitted into some

GLASER SAID that he and
many of his Reform rabbinical
colleagues had considerable "am-
bivalence" about this admittedly
radical departure from Jewish
tradition. He said that two con-
cepts were central to an under-
standing of the motivations for
the approval of the 1983 reso-
lution. He said one was "oppor-
tunity" and the other was "com-

IN PACT, he said, since
Reform Judaism started an "out-
reach" program several years
ago, more and more congrega-
tions are taking in mixed married
couples and, correspondingly, the
key rabbinical and congrega-
tional Reform officials are getting
more and more questions.
He said these include queries
on such matters as to whether a
non-Jewish mother could be ac-
ceptable for membership in the
Sisterhood; for office in the Sis-
terhood; and for office on the
congregation's Board of
Trustees. There is also a grow-
ing stream of questions as to
whether a non-Jewish father
could be called to the Torah or
participate in a Bar Mitzvah.
Glaser was asked whether any
system of records was being
planned, so that there could be
some kind of documentation to
guide the Reform rabbi in the
future who might be called upon
to determine whether an adult

1983 CCAR resolution.
Klaperman declared that the
resolution contained "the seeds
of schism creating two 'kinds' of
Jews, who would not be per-
mitted to marry one another ac-'

declared that this "new defini-
