he has declined to do so, his
supporters now see hope that he

Earlier, stunned delegations of
Likud activists came to Begin's
office, together with representa-
tives of Begin s Likud-led coali-
tion, and begged Begin to stay in
office to assure continued Jewish
settlement of the West Bank.
They also told the Premier that
the majority of the people wanted
him to stay in office.
SOME OF the delegations
blamed the Cabinet ministers for
placing obstacles in Begins way
and with having made life for him
as Premier "unbearable." Begin
indicated he was not convinced
by these remonstrations. but
agreed to postpone his answer.

Fifteen Days Remain For
1983 Federation Campaign
All members of the Jewish community are
pouraged to make a contribution to the Tampa
Trish Federation campaign before Yom Kippur.
"The 1983 campaign will be the most successful
the history of our community because more people
ever before are accepting responsibility for
"ng." said Campaign Chairman Les Burnett. "We
ft* that at least 300 more people will respond to
Js final call for a contribution."
The monies raised in Tampa support the United
wish Appeal, which provides funds used for the
Clal welfare needs of Israel and remnant Jewish
imunities in Europe.
Locally the campaign supports the Jewish
Jmmunity Center, Tampa Jewish Social Service,

the coalition, who attended the
meeting with Begin, emerged to
tell reporters that Begin had
made no comments on the ap-
peals but simply had listened.
Shapiro said no mention had been
made of a possible successor be-
cause the assumption of those
making the appeals was that
Begin should remain. An Aguda
Knesset member, Menachem
Porush, was more optimistic, de-
claring that Begin had "opened a
gate of hope."
Aguda Knesset deputy, said the
trouble was that no one knew
why Begin had decided to resign.
Lorincz said he had told the Pre-
mier that "rather than that we
spoke for hours," Begin "should
have told us what he thought."
He said he also told Begin that an
explanation would have made it
easier to persuade him to with-
draw his planned resignation.
But, Lorincz reported, "Begin
laughed when I said that and
would not disclose his reasons for
resigning.'' The Premier told the
Cabinet he intended to resign for
"personal reasons."
Despite Begin s indication, he
did not at first go immediately to
President Chaim Herzog to offi-
cially submit hia resignation, but
political analysts here were
nevertheless reported to be con-
vinced that he would do so.
Uri Porat, Begin's press ad-
viser, said after a meeting that
Begin had been deeply impressed
by the arguments for his staying
and had simply asked for more
time to think it over. Ehud
Olmert, a Likud deputy, said
after the meeting that he thought
Begin intended to proceed with
his resignation but that the insis-
tence of hia supporters that he
remain Premier had created a
heavy dilemma for him.
The dilemma was resolved
shortly thereafter whatever
the dilemma waa. The Prime
Minister is now an "ex."

20th anniversary of King's
historic "I have a dream" speech
in Washington, D.C.
The Committee for the Dr.

Forest in Israel announced that
the tribute took place at a Galilee
hillside near Nazareth. The in-
terfaith group recalled that King
had expressed a desire to visit
Israel, and voiced hia admiration
for its democracy and progress.
The 10,000-tree King Memorial
Forest, established by the Jewish
National Fund of America, is now
in its seventh year of planting.
When the forest was first es-
tablished, every Black and
Jewish member of Congress
agreed to serve as an honorary
sponsor, and Congressional
sponsorship has continued over
the years.

IDF Colonel Aids JNF
Israeli Army officers work to
defend their country. Put another
way, the security of Israel is the
prime concern of the Israel De-
fense Forces. Sometimes this se-
curity work is a long way from
the expected role of'army person-
Who would think of a career
officer, a colonel, based in Hous-
ton, working with the Jewish Na-
tional Fund, as being involved in
the defense of Israel? But that is
exactly what Col. Meir Doron has
being doing during his two-year
"tour" with JNF.
Col. Meir Doron's JNF work
recently brought him to Tampa
to meet with the JNF director,
Larry Wasser, and the volunteers
who are trying to raise $150,000
from the Gulf Coast Council to
purchase 150 dunims (that's ap-
proximately 35 acres) in the Gali-
lee. That's not 35 acres in one
plot, but rather, bits and pieces of
land throughout the Galilee
That's land which is on the hill-
tops and high ground and can be-
come Mitzpim or settlements.
Doron explained, "These set-
tlements made up of seven or
eight families establish a mitz-
pim. Some will grow into kibbut-
zim or moshavim. And through
this method we are moving more
of your Jewish people into the
Galilee. This area was 72 percent
Arab in 1975 and today is 64 per-
cent Arab. We are trying to reach
a goal of 50 percent.
To date the Gulf Coast Council
has raised $45,000 for this pro-
ject. "JNF doesn't build houses,"
Col. Doron states emphatically.
"The Jewish Agency through the
United Jewish Appeal is involved
with this. In Israel these agencies
work very closely together. And
all are needed."
The settlers for these mitzpim
come from the young people just
out of the army, he explained.
Some are new olim (recent
citizens of Israel from other
countries), and n are from
neighboring moshavim.
Col. Doron explained that JNF
and the IDF Army work very
closely together. "The security

Likud Made Strenuous
Effort to Reverse
Tami Move to
Likud leaders, led by Premier
Menachem Begin, made
strenuous efforts last week to
persuade Tami Party officials to
change a decision made by the
party's secretariat to quit the
coalition, but without success.
Tami leaders, led by Labor and
Social Affairs Minister Aharon
Uzan, met with Begin and argued
strongly against government
plans for a 10 percent increase in
the sales tax on consumer goods,
asserting that many of the items
which will be affected by the in-
crease are not in the luxury cate-
gory and that the tax would hurt
low-income families. The propos-
ed increases are part of a series of
major changes in government
income and outlays aimed at
bringing Israel's runaway infla-
tion under control.
BEGIN did not reply to the
complaints by the three-member
Knesset faction but asked Uzan
to postpone action to permit
further talks in the hope some
arrangement could be made by
which Tami would remain in the
Likud-led coalition. Uzan said hi
did not believe any Treasury ac-
tion could change Tami's pullout
decision unless the proposed ad-
ditional sales tax on luxury items
was cancelled.
Tami leaders also are unhappy
about some of the budget cuts
Aridor has proposed, one involv-
ing plans to charge an estimated
330-Shekel education fee monthly
The cancellation of increased
sales taxes was indirectly reject-
ed by Finance Minister Yoram
Aridor who emerged from a self-
imposed silence during the swirl
of controversy created by his
proposals to cut the next govern-
ment budget by 55 billion
DEFENDING his economic
budget proposals. He also criti-
cized those whq proposed budget
cuts and then, when such cuts
were introduced, continued to
criticize the government.
Uzan denied that Tami has
started talks with the Labor
Alignment opposition to form a
new government if the Likud-led
coalition falls, declaring that
Tami did not intend to bring
down the government only to
create an alternative govern-
by JNF. The trees, by which JNF
is known, make up only about
three percent of the work of JNF.
Asphalt roads prevent mines
being planted in roads during the

Rabbi Frank N. Sundheim
Heads TRA
The Tampa Rabbinical
Association president for 1983-84
is Rabbi Frank N. Sundheim of
Congregation Schaarai Zedek.
"We have grown to be a group of
six colleagues sitting down
together once a month," Sun-
dheim said. "The cohesiveness of
this group holds well for the
whole community."
During the summer, the TRA
met with all professional heads of
the local agencies. "We left that
meeting encouraged by the
strength of the Jewish
professional community in
Tampa. With so many new
people assuming positions, it was
wonderful to share the common
bonds we have and to feel the
vibrancy of our growing city,"
Rabbi Sundheim stated.
Last week the TRA met with
the Pinellas Board of Rabbis.
"This change in programming is
healthy for us all. We need to
reach out to the community as a
group,'' Sundheim added.
Intercongregational Sabbath
has been set for April 20 at
Congregation Schaarai Zedek.
He has served as chief instructor
of the Command Staff College,
and his career has been devoted
to artillery.
His time in the United States
has been spent speaking for JNF
and working with the Israel Con-
sul. "I was stationed before and
will return to the Galilee," he
said. "My time in the states is di-
rectly connected with the secu-
rity of Israel We truly are oae.
And the success of this work here I
will directly relate to the security I
of the Israeli people."
Larry Wasser, speaking f or thai
local JNF volunteers said CoLl
Doron's presence emphasizes the!
importance of JNF's work. "Wt
do so much more than ;
trees, and Col. Doron makes
all understand that."

Friday. September;
He Stunned His Cabinet
Likud Leaders Appeared Dumbfounded by Begin's Decision
In a move that shocked
, the Cabinet and stunned
f the nation, Premier
Menachem Begin announc-
ed Sunday that he intended
to resign. He made the
announcement at the end of
a relatively brief Cabinet
session. Likud leaders and
spokesmen appeared
dumbfounded by this un-
expected development.
Begin surprised the ministers
at the end of the Cabinet session
when he asked to make a "perso
nal statement." He declared: "I
came to the Cabinet session this
morning to tell you about my
intention to resign. This an-
nouncement has nothing to do
with today's session or with other
sessions that took place recently.
The reason for my resignation is
personal." The other sessions he
was referring to were those deal-
ing with the government's new
economic austerity budget.
visibly moved. Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir reportedly was
trembling when he told Begin:
"We have followed you through
thick and thin. Everything you
had asked for. we did and we
shall do." Other ministers spoke
about Begin s special place in the
State of Israel and among the
Jewish people. The ministers
enumerated the achievements of
the present government, and
added: "There is more to do."
The ministers told Begin that
he was the only person who could
rule the country at this time. But
Begin reportedly made no com-
mitments. "I will consider your
stand, but I do not promise any-
thing." he reportedly told the
ministers. According to one
report. Begin told the ministers
after the Cabinet session: "I do
not feel I function the way a
person who holds a job as respon-
sible as mine should function."
Begin did not indicate when he
would submit his resignation to
the President which by law is
mandatory to make the resigna-
tion legally binding. The Premier
agreed to meet with the leaders of
all the parties that comprise the
Likud coalition Monday morning
before making any further an-
BEGIN'S associates said that
his decision was not sudden, but
was formed gradually within the
past few months. The first
substantial indication that
"something was going on" was
Begins surprise decision to
cancel a visit to Washington to
meet with Reagan in July for
"personal reasons." It was also
recalled that Begin had declared
a long time ago that he would re-
sign at the age of 70. His 70th
birthday took place several weeks
Since the death of his wife,
Aiiza, last November, Begin has
been in a state of depression and
has gradually tapered off involv-
ing himself in day-to-day activi-
ties. He has spoken out less
frequently in public, and when he
has done so, he has appeared
tired and withdrawn.
The Premier is also known to
be depressed over the stalemate
in Lebanon and the continuing
toll of dead and wounded Israeli
soldiers there. He has also been
buffeted by the mounting econo-
mic crisis and the growing
animosity between the Sephardic
and Ashkenazic communities. In
addition, he is known to be dis-
heartened by the Reagan
Administration's persistent
criticism of his government's
West Bank settlement policy.
Only Saturday, President
Reagan, in his regular Saturday
address to the American people,
reaffirmed that Israel's West
Bank settlement policy posed
"an obstacle to peace" in the
Middle East. In his address,
delivered from his ranch house
near Santa Barbara, Calif..
Reagan declared that "the future
of these settlements can only be
dealt with through direct nego-
tiations between the parties to
the conflict. The sooner these
negotiations begin, the greater
the chance for a solution."
REAGAN ALSO made it clear
that he feels his Mideast peace
initiative, which he offered last
year and which has been viewed
in diplomatic circles here and
abroad as having failed, "is
definitely alive and available to
those parties willing to sit down
together and talk peace."
That initiative, rejected by
Israel, called for negotiations
involving Israel and Jordan and
leading to the eventual establish-
ment of an autonomous Pales-
tinian entity in the West Bank in
association with Jordan. The
initiative, which also criticized
the West Bank settlements, was
considered moribund since
Jordan refused to participate last
Shortly after the Cabinet
meeting Sunday, Cabinet Secre-
tary Dan Meridor issued a state-
ment which said: "At the
Cabinet meeting today, after
discussion of several issues, the
Premier informed the Cabinet of
his intention to resign from
office. After the announcement of
the Premier, all the ministers
asked the Prime Minister to
retract his announcement, and
stay in office."
LEGALLY, the resignation of
the Premier once it is submitt-
ed officially to the President is
at the same time the resignation
of the entire government. From
that moment on, the government
is considered a care-taker govern-
ment. Although such a govern-
ment is by nature transitory, it is
politically stronger in that it can-
not be toppled by a vote of no
confidence, nor can any minister
resign. A care-taker government
remains in power until it is re-
placed by another government.
A new government can be
formed by one of two ways: the

Volume 5 Number 28
WITH PRESIDENT CARTER: triumphant achievement.
President can ask any Knesset
member, including Begin, to try
and form a new coalition; or the
Knesset can pass a law calling for
new elections. Traditionally, the
President has asked a
representative of the largest
party in the Knesset to form the
Presently it is the Labor
Alignment which, since the last
elections, has been enlarged by
two defectors from the Likud.
But given the general disarray of
the Alignment and its lack of a
clear program on vital issues, it is
not clear that the Alignment
could actually form an alterna-
tive coalition.
This makes the option of new
elections a greater possibility. It
is assumed that if Begin decides
on new elections he could rally
sufficient support in the Knesset
to pass a law calling for new and
early elections. Begin's an-
nouncement of his intention to
resign did not make it clear
whether he would remain politi-
cally active after he leaves office.
said Sunday that he would not go
back on his decision. Begin left
the Premier's office shortly after
the Cabinet session and drove off
to his residence. He made no
statement and would answer no
The assumption that Begin's
decision was final was buttressed
by Science Minister Yuval
Neeman of Tehiya. He told
reporters that Begin's move was
motivated by "an unexpected
personal reason," and therefore
he would not reconsider his move.
All efforts to persuade him to
remain in office would be useless,
Neeman said. He did not explain
what the "unexpected personal
reason" was.
However, Education Minister
Zevulum Hammer expressed the
hope that Begin would recon-
sider. He said the National
Religious Party, of which
Hammer is one of the leaders,
would continue its partnership
with Likud even if Begin resigns.
But he did not rule out a future
partnership with the Alignment.
Deputy Foreign Minister
Yehuda Ben Meir, also of the
NRP, said: "Whatever happens,
our party will remain loyal to the
partnership with Likud, because
this is the mandate which it
received from its electors."
LABOR PARTY leaders meet
ing in Tel Aviv said they would
watch the situation closely and
try to weigh the political options
ahead. Because of the number of
question marks surrounding
Begin's next steps, Labor Party
leaders said thay would refrain
from making any further im-
mediate public statements, until
further consulations which were
to begin between party leader
Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Rabin,
Haim Barlev and Victor Shemtov
of Mapam, an Alignment par-
The most likely group for any
immediate partnership with the
Alignment would be the three-
member Tami Knesset faction. It
was Tami's threat last week to
leave the government because of
its discontent with the Finance
Ministry's latest economic cut-
back package that hung heavily
over the Cabinet. In fact, Tami
leader Aharon Uzan, who is also
Labor and Social Affairs
Minister, said he did not attend
Sunday's Cabinet session
because he anticipated Begin's
resignation, and he did not want
to be blamed for it.
The crisis with Tami might
very well have sparked Begin,
decision. It is possible -
although there is no clear evi-
dence that Begin saw no way
out of that crisis. Rather than
have a three-member Knesset
faction cause his government's
fall by reducing its present majo-
rity to 61 members in the 120-
member parliament, Begin might
have decided to create a situation
whereby Tami could be out-
EVEN IF Tami resigns from
the government and becomes an
Alignment partner in a new coali-
tion, and even assuming that
Shinui, with its two Knesset
members, would join an Align-
ment-led government, such a
government would have only 55
Knesset seats. The Communist
Party (Hadash) could promise to
be a silent partner of the Align-
ment, thus giving an Alignment-
led government 59 Knesset seats
but still two seats short of the
necessary minimum of 61 votes in
the parliament.
Thus, the political reality
seemed to be that if Begin re-
signed, this would probably lead
to new elections, with a Begin-led
caretaker government ruling
until those elections were held. If
no majority is found in the Knes-
set for early elections, such a
caretaker would rule until the
next scheduled elections, at the
end of 1985.
The report on Begin's action
instantly prompted pro-and-anti-
demonstrations. A gathering in
support of the Premier, urging
him not to resign, developed
Sunday outside Begin's residence
in Jerusalem's Talbiye quarter.
Peace Now demonstrators as-
sembled, urging Begin to stick to
his planned resignation. Police
created a separation zone bet-
ween the two groups of
demonstrators to avoid clashes
between them.
ACCORDING TO one report,
a movement of "Citizens for.
Begin" was quickly formed,
which organized free transporta-
tion to Jerusalem to demonstrate
solidarity with the Premier.
Political observers speculated
that if Begin does quit political
life, the internal struggle within
Begin's Herut party could inten-
sify. The possible heirs are
Foreign Minister Shamir, Deputy
Premier David Levy, Defense
Minister Moshe Arens and
Finance Minister Yoram Aridor.
The observers said one public
figure former Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon should not be
ruled out of consideration.
Asked about that possibility in
a radio interview, Sharon said,
"The Herut movement always
had free competition and elec-
tions." If Begin sticks to his re-
signation, Sharon said, he hoped
Begin would "lead Likud in the
election campaign." He said
Likud would win a major victory
if an election took place.

Peace by Direct Negotiations Only

in the Middle East "is by
direct negotiations between
Israel and the Palestin

West Bank, addressing the
88th annual convention of
the Jewish War Veterans,
"We are Palestinians living
under occupation; we call for a
termination of that occupation,
but the only means to achieve
that end is through direct
negotiations." Dodin, who
claimed that the Village Leagues

and are "the only ones leading
the masses," said, "We accept

cause they were an indigenuous,

One is a 60-mm gun mounted on a swivel which can be
attached to a standard armored personnel carrier or other
vehicle. The gun has a high muzzle velocity which its
producers say enables it to put out of commission the
heavy Soviet-made T-72 tanks now in use by the Syrians.
The other product is a multi-barrel Katyusha-like
rocket launcher which can fire either 18 or 36 rockets
simultaneously or in close sequence. The 160-mm rockets
have a range of 30 kilometers. The multi-barrel launchers
are at present intended only for export.
Klarsfelds Say France Employed
Former Nazis in Post-War Years
Nazi-hunters Serge and
Beate Klarsfeld have ac-
cused French intelligence
organizations of having
employed notorious former
Gestapo and Nazi officials
in the post-war years.
In an interview with Le
Monde the Klarsfelds said that
America "was not the only
country to have used former
Nazis" and said that several
French intelligence outfits, in-
cluding one investigating
wartime Nazi crimes, had em-
ployed former Nazi officials. The
Klarsfelds called on France to
follow America's example and
appoint an investigating com-
mission to throw all possible light
on these practices.
Murphy, Begin Meet
Richard Murphy, the U.S. Assist-
ant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs
met with Premier Menachem
Begin and Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir here last Wed-
nesday. Following the meeting,
Murphy said the three talked
mainly about the situation in the
Mideast and the possible role of
Saudi Arabia in a settlement of
the crisis in Lebanon. Murphy's
recent nomination by President
Reagan as Assistant Secretary is
awaiting Congressional approval.

ing to have King Hussein come to
the peace table with PLO chief
Yasir Arafat's approval. Having
been a political advisor to
Hussein for five years, Dodin
observed "You will wait 100
years before King Hussein will
come forward with Arafat." for
Arafat would get all the credit
and Hussein would lose his king-
DODIN ALSO charged that
the U.S. State Department has
met with terrorists of the Middle
East, but has refused to meet
with his group. He believes,
however, that the United States
is the "only third country which
can contribute to peace."
Urging that the time is ripe for
fruitful negotiations, he en-
visoned an ultimate solution to
involve a return to pre-1967
borders. Since the Egyptians do
not want Gaza, he said. Gaza
should be part oi a West Bank-
East Bank state.
Dodin further stated, "Jeru-
salem should not be divided
again; Arabs and Jews should
contribute to an administrative
council for the city."
When asked by JWV delegates
if he rejected the idea of a West
Bank confederation with Israel
and Jordan, Dodin said he did
not reject this idea and at one
time had discussed positively
with Hussein the idea of "can-
DECLARING "we don't want

Bank would be a good idea. He

believe in the brotherhood of
man. of Arab and of Jews. God
meant for us to live in peace."
Stanley Zwaik, national com-
mander of the JWV, said his
organization did not agree with
all of Dodin's statements, but

that the Village League leader
had made the long journey from
Hebron to bring his message of
peace to Americans.

Election Director Told 'To Quit'

municipal election director, who has been preparing
Mayor Shlomo Lahat's campaign for the local council
elections later this year, handed in his resignation
Monday after a reportedly stormy meeting with Lahat.

should also be applied in Israel against the Arabs.
Lahat told Halpern he was strongly opposed to these
sentiments and demanded his resignation, which was

Ceausescu Says
War Misfired

created more difficult and com-

manager for North America, David Schneider.
Schneider, at his New York headquarters, is, of
course, referring to the last minute rescue of El Al
which put its planes back in the air last Jan. 30.
The "new" El Al took wing last winter amidst
fears that travelers who had grown accustomed to
other airlines during the various El Al strikes and
work stoppages might not return even if El Al
As, M. J. Rosenberg, editor of Near East Re-
port, notes in a "Back Page" article headlined "El
Al: Bouncing Back," it is now clear that the El Al
passenger is a faithful one. Despite the number of
airlines now flying to Tel Aviv including
several cut-rate charter outfits El Al's passen-
gers are filling its 15 jets to capacity. It even
appears that the airline's new Sabbath policy is
not hurting it; Orthodox Jewish passengers who
had been flying other airlines are now returning to
show appreciation for the Sabbath policy.
And El Al has become a leading cargo carrier.
"To maintain and expand on that position,"
Schneider said, "we have appointed Efraim Lanir,
49, as cargo manager for North America; Joseph
A. Czyzyk as cargo manager and sales manager,
U.S.A., who has developed El Al's business on
the West Coast, and Lois B. Costo as cargo sales
manager for the Western Region with headquar-
ters in Los Angeles."
LANIR, HAIFA-BORN, started with Israel
Aircraft Industry in 1969, then joined El Al in
1971 as systems and methods department
manager, later becoming cargo airport manager
at Ben (iurion Airport.
He replaces Yaacov Riesenberg, who is
returning to Israel after serving six years with El
Al in the United States.
"Over the past six years" Schneider said, "El
Al's cargo operations have grown substantially
thanks to the extraordinary efforts of Yaacov
Riesenberg. He will be missed."
Czyzyk is credited with generating in excess of
$7 million revenue through its Los Angeles and
San Francisco cargo handling facilities during the
1982-83 fiscal year.
On Aug. 15, El Al began regular weekly
commercial flights between Israel and Spain. El
Al Israel Airlines President Rafi Mariev called
this "an historic moment, signalling a new era of
cooperation between our respective countries."
He added: "Spain is a favorite destination for
Israelis, and we are confident that this decision
will result in a steady flow of visitors to Israel
from the Iberian peninsula."
BUT THE BIG NEWS. Rosenbergs Near
East Report article points out is that "El Al's
survival is important news for all travelers and
would-be travelers to Israel."
Efraim Lanir
He points out:
"A recent flight on El Al demonstrated that
flying on Israel's airline is still a unique ex-
perience. While still on the ground at New York's
Kennedy airport, the atmosphere on board was
already "Tel Aviv." Passengers crowded the
aisles greeting old and new friends. High school
kids on a youth group trip burst into spontaneous
song. Small Israeli children, flying home without
their parents, allowed themselves to be tem-
porarily adopted by friendly strangers. The
happy din never let up.
"The flight itself was, as flights are supposed
to be, uneventful. The non-stop run took
10'i hours just 15 minutes longer than
scheduled. The food and service were excellent.
"But it was in the flight's conclusion that El Al
showed its touch. As the 747 descended, the pilot
came on to say that passengers on the left side of
the plane could now glimpse the coast of Israel
out of their windows. The entire plane in-
cluding travelers who had made the trip a dozen
times strained to take in the sight. The pilot
came on again to welcome his passengers "to our
home, Israel." Then came the prerecorded tape of
"Hevenu, Shalom Aleichem," the passengers and
crew singing and clapping, and flight 004 was on
the ground. For this airline, a flight to Israel is
still something to sing about."
Hollings Raps Reagan 'Errors'
Sen. Fritz Hollings (D.,
S.C.) told the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations
that the Reagan Adminis-
tration had made "funda-
mental errors" which have
"dissipated the advantage
gained by the signing of an
Egyptian-Israeli peace
In the first of a series of Presi-
dents Conference forums with
Presidential candidates, Hollings
charged that United States
policy in "refusing" to activate
the United States-Israel agree-
ment on strategic cooperation, its
resistance to establishing nec-
essary liaison between United
States and Israeli forces in Leb-
anon, and withholding delivery of
long-promised F-16 fighter planes
had sent "the wrong signals" to
the Arab world and the Soviet
"I HAVE warned for many
years against the danger of
giving even the merest impres-
sion of wavering in our commit-
ment to Israel's security, and
have said repeatedly that if Israel
were allowed to appear weak in
the eyes of the world, grave
consequences would ensue,"
Hollings said.
The Senator, in answer to a
question following his talk, said
he had supported for the past five
years the moving of the United
States Embassy in Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem. "Our country should
treat Israel not as a client state
but as a sovereign nation,"
Hollings declared.

t. The nation's only Jewish-
i, nonsectarian liberal arts
kution of higher learning.
jndeis today is widely
nized by leading educators
lone of the country's finest
Vate liberal arts universities.
LTHOUGH it has no medical
ool, Brandeis students
sistently are accepted at
nical schools at a rate that far
ds the national average.
fcough it has no law school,
indeis students have
orically been sought after by
Ibest law schools in the nation.
nd although it is a small
|nrsity enrolling about
undergraduates and 700
graduate students Brandeis
combines the breadth and range
of academic programs usually
found at much larger universities
with the intimate educational
atmosphere of an undergraduate
college. The student-faculty ratio
is approximately 10 to 1.
The Brandeis success story is
one that, ironically, was born of
failure the dissolution of a
medical and veterinary college,
Middlesex University in
Waltham, Mass., that previously
occupied the Brandeis site.
Fortuitously, at the same time
insolvency loomed for Middlesex,
a committee of public-spirited
Jews in New York City were
seeking a campus for their plan to
establish a Jewish-founded
plight of Middlesex, and
following a series of negotiations
between the two parties, the
campus and the charter passed to
the committee with no purchase
Although the group had to
assume many of Middlesex's out-
standing obligations, Jews in
America could be "a host at last"
to gifted young men and women
scholars. But the committee
there were eight founding
trustees had no money, no
constituency, and no educational
objectives except the conviction
that the school represented a gift
from the Jewish people to
American higher education.
"In the past 35 years, the
precious gift has been sustained
by Jews and non-Jews alike,"
said Sachar, who served for 20
years as president and for many
years thereafter as chancellor.
In order to represent a lasting
bequest to America by the
"people of the book," Brandeis
felt it had to epitomize the best.
It had to strike boldly for the top
rank immediately, using as
models the Harvards, the Prince-
tons, the Stanfords, and others of
the traditional elite.
"That was a conscious decision
by the eight founders," explained
Sachar. "They wanted the best
students, the most distinguished
faculty, and the most adequate
facilities. They were not about to
accept anything less."
Brandeis' first entering class in
1948 the same year Israel was
founded consisted of 107 intre-
pid young men and women and
13 equally adventurous faculty.
Today, the nearly 3,500 under-
graduates and graduate students
scholarly legatees of the 1948
pioneers freely choose an ener-
getic intellectual atmosphere, a
distinguished and international-
ly-known faculty, and an insti-
tution that has, from its in-
ception, maintained the highest
academic standards.
BRANDEIS' commitment to
excellence was swiftly recognized
by Phi Beta Kappa, the national
honor society, which granted
recognition to Brandeis just 13
years after the university was
founded the youngest institu-
tion so honored in over 100 years.
Recently, Brandeis was one of
only 12 universities in America
ranked among the top 10 in the
country in three or more of six
undergraduate disciplines
Similarly, several of Brandeis'
graduate departments have been
rated among the nation's best,
and the moat recent survey of
professional school deans ranked
its Florence Heller Graduate
School for Advanced Studies in
Social Welfare fourth in the
country among schools of social
The university's multi-million
dollar Rosenstiel Basic Medical
Sciences Research Center, built
in 1973, enhanced Brandeis'
growing reputation in the
physical sciences and attracted
leading researchers to probe
arees in the bio-medical field.
The four schools in the under-
graduate college at Brandeis
Science, Social Sience, Humani-
ties, and Creative Arts offer
about 900 courses in 32 fields of
concentration and several
specialized programs. Brandeis
undergraduates men and
women of diverse ethnic, reli-
gious and racial backgrounds
come from virtually every state
in the union and over 40 foreign
countries. They are able to parti-
cipate in research normally of-
fered only in graduate programs
at other leading colleges and
graduates receive part of their
training from senior faculty
members. From the beginning,
Brandeis felt that its academic
"stars" which have included
such giants as historian Henry
Steele Commager, composer
Leonard Bernstein, psychologist
Abraham Maslow, and Judaic
scholar Nahum Galtzer should
enrich the undergraduate ex-
At a time when many colleges
and universities have abandoned
or cut back their commitment to
liberal arts in favor of technical
training, Brandeis has actually
strengthened its traditional com-
mitment to the liberal arts. "As
our society becomes more
complicated and increasingly
technologically oriented," said
one Brandeis administrator,
We Urge You to Join and Support
A Synagogue off YouriChoice
"the ability to learn how to learn
and apply knowledge both
hallmarks of a liberal arts
training will become even
more valuable in the future."
For the overwhelming majority
of the nearly 17,000 men and
women who are Brandeis alumni,
such a philosophy has equipped
them for leadership positions in
business, medicine, the law, the
arts, and nearly every other
professional endeavor.
Tourism From
U.S. to Israel
'Breaking All
Tourism from the U.S. to Israel is
breaking all records, according to
Moshe Shoshani, Israel's new
Commissioner for Tourism to
North America. "We welcomed
30 percent more American
visitors this May and 46 percent
more in June than in the same
months of 1982. Overall, we
expect to end 1983 with some
320,000 American tourists
visiting the country, 15 percent
more than last year ... we have
already surpassed the previous
record set in 1980."
Discussing the tourism figures,
Shoshani said that quite apart
from the surge of travelers
visiting Europe, there is a
growing perception amongst
Americans that Israel is an
exciting, interesting and enjoy-
able country to visit over and
above the country's "traditional"
religious and historic attractions.

"Personal attack" and "politi-
cal editorial" broadcasting regu-
lations "are vital tools for ensur-
ing that the public remains in-
formed on controversial issues
and should not be repealed," ac-
cording co tne Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith.
The League is objecting to the
Federal Communications Com-
mission's proposal to lift the two
rules under which air time is
granted for opposing viewpoints.
In a letter to the FCC, Justin
J. Finger, director of ADL's Civil
Rights Division, said the public
access rules guarantee diversity
of opinion and the free and open
discussion of ideas protected by
the First Amendment.
Finger challenged the FCC's
point that rebuttal to a personal
attack which focuses on vindicat-
ing the individual's reputation
does not necessarily clarify a
public issue.

. The American Jewish
community did .ot come
collectively to ,ue help of
Julius and Ethel Rosenberg
between 1951 when they
were tried for conspiracy
and 1953 when they were
executed because of ex-
treme sensitivity over the
Jewish issue in the case.
That is the considered opinion
of Ronald Radosh and Joyce
Milton in their survey of the trial.
In their book, "The Rosenberg
File" (Holt Rinehart and Win-
ston). Radosh and Milton, having
obtained access to hitherto
classified materials, come to the
conclusion that the organized
Jewish community was so fearful
of an anti-Jewish backlash, that
it fought against clemency for the
American Jewish Committee to
support the Rosenbergs in any
way has been used over the years,
say Radosh and Milton, to prove
that there was not a taint of anti-
Semitism during the trial and
sentencing of the suspected
atomic spies.
The authors suggest, however,
that there might have been a kind
of reverse anti-Semitism during
the hearings. Howard Fast "sug-
gested that the handling of their
case by a Jewish judge and
prosecutor (Kaufman and
Saypol) was the result of some
undefined but sinister con-
spiracy. Jews "have been judged
by Jews' and sent to death by
other Jews,' Fast charged.
'Exactly the old technique of the
Jewish Tribunal employed by
Hitler." "
Radosh and Milton reveal in
their study that when the jury
room was cleared, a note was
found there on which the word
Jude appeared. The note was
handed over to the FBI because a
court official believed that its
public release could be man-
ipulated by the press to make it
appear that the Rosenbergs had
been victims of an anti-Semitic
juror. The note was finally
handed over to prosecutor Say-
pol, who did not reveal its exis-

least one jury member. Vincent
Lebonitte. who is quoted by
Radosh and Milton as saying: "I
felt good that this was a strictly
Jewish show. It was Jew against
Jew. It wasn't the Christians
hanging the Jews.''
Authors Radosh and Milton
speculate that both Judge Kauf-
man and prosecuting attorney
Saypol demanded an un-
precedented death sentence
(Klaus Fuchs, the German spy
received ten years for a far more
heinous offense) from an
exaggerated sensitivity to the
possibility that the Rosenberg
case would precipitate a new
wave of anti-Semitism in the
United States. In fact the court
did receive an abundance of hate
mail during the trial.
The American Jewish commu-
nity did not merely stand aside in
the petitionary activity for
clemency on behalf of the Rosen-
bergs; it went out of its way to
argue against the clemency cam-
paign and for the death penalty.
intellectual argued that Jews
must not support the clemency
campaign, "even for purely hu-
manitarian reasons." The writer
in question said that the Com-
munist Party was now attempt-
ing to use Jews "as it had long
used blacks as part of its war on
Even a thousand-to-one chance
that Ethel or Julius Rosenberg
might eventually confess, "could
not be sufficient reasons for
sparing their lives since to'
back down from the death sen-
tence would carry with it the ap-
pearance of caving in to the Com-
munists' moral blackmail.
The kind of concern expressed
by the writer was also reflected in
a lengthy memorandum prepared
by a staff member of the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee on July
31, 1950 just a short time after
the Rosenbergs were arrested.
The memorandum entitled
'Public Relations Effects of Jew-
ish Atomic Spies," acknowledges
that the presence of so many
Jewish names among the accused
makes for a potentially danger-
ous situation for Jews.
The author of the memo-
randum advocates the infiltrat-
ing of leftist organizations "using
our knowledge to scare off Jews."
In addition the brief argues that
the American Jewish Committee
eschew defensive kinds of pro-
paganda in favor of a more ag-
gressive "propaganda of fact."
propaganda are provided in the
brief and include statements
about Soviet persecution of Jews,
their recruitment of spies and ef-
forts in North America to fight
Communist infiltration. Israel's
support of America in the Korean
War and the Jewish state's con-
trol of Communists are also cited
as positive propaganda responses
to the Rosenberg-generated
Radosh and Milton point to
Rabbi S. Andhill Fineberg's book
"The Rosenberg Case: Fact and
Fiction," as a representative
American Jewish view. Published
in 1953 (with the imprimatur of a
semi-official government
document) Fineberg's study,
while accurate in its demolition of
much of the pro-Rosenberg case,
suffers, say Radosh and Milton
