Brings 'Clear Message' to Reagan
NEW YORK (JTA) President
"haim Herzog of Israel arrived here
londay bringing "a very clear message"
M> President Reagan and other
Vdministration officials from Premier
fitzhak Shamir. He told reporters at
Kennedy Airport, however, that his 10-day
visit to the U.S. is "apolitical." He meets
rith Reagan on Tuesday, Nov. 22.
Herzog, accompanied by his wife, Ora,
as greeted by Meir Rosenne, Israel's
Ambassador to the U.S., Yehuda Blum, the
..sraeli Ambassador to the United Nations,
the Israeli Consul General in New York,
iNaphtalie Lavie, and other Israeli officials
[and American Jewish leaders at a reception

Herzog said, in response to a question by
[the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, that he is
also bringing a message for American
|jewry which he will deliver when he ad-
[dresses various American Jewish forums in
[the next few days. He mentioned that
before leaving Israel, he met with Shamir
and Defense Minister Moehe Arena to
discuss his trip.
Herzog met Mayor Edward Koch of New
York at his Regency Hotel suite here
Tuesday and also met with a representative
of Gov. Mario Cuomo and with Lane
Kirk land, president of the AFL-CIO. He
addressed the UN General Assembly on
Wednesday and the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish
Organizations here Thursday before flying
to Atlanta for his speech to the CJF
Thursday night.
The Israeli chief of state said his original
purpose in coming to the U.S. was to
address the 52nd General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federations in Atlanta
which had invited him some time ago to be
the major speaker. Subsequently, he said,
he decided to broaden his visit to include
meetings with Reagan and other
Administration officials and American
Jewish leaders and to address the United
But He Gives No Date
For Exit of Forces
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Yitzhak Shamir
said that Israel may be nearing the end of its presence in
Lebanon but refused to say just when this would be.
Rejecting the view that Israel is somehow trapped in
Lebanon, Shamir said in a television interview last
Wednesday that the end was in sight. "However, there
are some obstacles which must be overcome."
HE STRESSED that Israel has achieved its main
objectives in Lebanon, destroying the Palestine
Liberation Organization's infrastructure in that country
and keeping the terrorists far from its borders. "We have
no interest to continue the war, but must make sure that
we are not attacked by the terrorists once we leave," he
Shamir noted that there already has been a substantial
reduction of Israel's presence in Lebanon. The Israel
Defense Force occupies a smaller territory and is
deploying smaller forces. He expressed hope that in the
near future, the Israeli presence could be reduced even
more. "We are looking into every possible way which
would allow us to reach an agreement on security
arrangements which would enable an IDF withdrawal
from Lebanon," Shamir said.
Percy Call W. Bank
Settlements 'Provocative'
Arabs Bilked U.S. Customers of Billions
I JTA) Rep. Clarence
Long (D., Md.), who has
been the target of a radio
commercial by an Arab
group for his leadership in
providing U.S. aid to Is-
rael, has charged that the
Arab oil-producing
countries have "extorted"
billions from the U.S.
I "Isn t it ironk that Arab-ai-
piiated organizations are com-
plaining when the OPEC nations
jave extorted $335 billion in ad-
ditional revenues from American
consumers as a result of the oil
P^e increases begun in 1973."
ng said as he received the
tmunah Women of America's
Man of the Year award in New
* last Wednesday night.
"That's almost twice as much as
the current U.S. deficit."
LONG SAID the radio com-
mercial sponsored by the Na-
tional Association of Arab Amer-
icans U.S. aid for Israel and Long for
supporting this aid, "is a hate
The 74-year-old chairman of
the House Appropriations Com-
mittee's subcommittee on foreign
operations has been a leading
proponent in Congress of provid-
ing aid to Israel. "Our support of
Israel is not only based on moral
and democratic grounds, but also
on the fact that Israel is our key
strategic asset in the Middto
East." Long told the Emunah
The NAAA commercial was
refused by radio stations in
Baltimore where Longs Con-
gressional district is located, but
was played by WTOP-AM in
Washington, D.C.
"AT A TIME when there's less
for all Americans, when unem-
ployment affects millions, when
we are suffering the tragic effects'
of Israel's invasion of Lebanon, is
it fair for Congress to give $2.6
billion to Israel?" the commercial
It answers its own question.
"This is not fair; this is out-
rageous. Congressman Clarence
Long is at the forefront of this
more for Israel' campaign." The
commercial asks listeners to
protest to Long.
A spokesman for Long said he
was concerned about the com-
mercial. He said there were re-
ports that it will be played
throughout the country and was
thus being heavily financed. Re-
districting in 1982 removed most
of the Jewish-populated areas
from Long's district.
Sen. Charles Percy (D.,
111.), calling Israel's
"extensive" West Bank
settlements "provocative,"
told a group of Jewish
leaders that the settlements
discouraged Jordan from
entering into peace
negotiations with the Jew-
ish State. He said he had
been assured that King
Hussein wants to enter into
negotiations with Israel.
Percy, chairman of the Foreign
Relations Committee, spoke to a
closed meeting of the Conference
of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations. The
meeting with the some 100
Jewish leaders was requested by
Percy, who is seeking reelection.
THE SENATOR said he op-
posed the establishment of an
independent Palestinian state
but asserted that the Palestinian
people needed a national
homeland, which he said should
be in some form of confederation
with Jordan. He said he regarded
Yasir Arafat, the Palestine
Liberation Organization's chief,
as a "relative moderate compared
with George Habash," the leader
of the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine."
The senior Senator from
Illinois also defended his support
for the 1981 sale of AWACS
reconnaissance planes and other
advanced weaponry to Saudi
Arabia, which he termed as a
"moderate" Arab state "com-
pared with Libya and Syria." He
said the military balance had not
shifted against Israel as a result
of the U.S. arms sale to the
On other topics, Percy was
reported to have appeared un-
comfortable with a question
about why the U.S. did not move
its Embassy to Jerusalem. He
said "the time was not ripe" for
such a move and that he would
not seek to push the Reagan
Administration into such a step
at this time.
PERCY SAID he strongly
opposed any demands by Syria or
its surrogates in Lebanon that
the government of President
Amin Gemayel abrogate its May
17 security and withdrawal
accord with Israel. The Adminis-
tration, he said, was strongly
opposed to any such action. He
said that he had personally urged
President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt to return his Ambassador
to Israel and to resume progress
toward normalization between
the two countries.

Association for Welfare of Soldiers in Israel
On a windswept mountaintop
on the northernmost border of Is-
rael there is a watchtower. In it
several soldiers continuously
scan the horizon with binoculars.
Hour after hour they endure the
cold, the boredom and the isola-
tion to guard their country
against any surprise attack from
hostile neighbors.
Suddenly, a truck pulling a
generator appears on the road to
their tower. It is bright orange
and on its side it bears the words
"The Association for Welfare of
Soldiers in Israel." The young
soldiers put down their bino-
culars and shout: "The Associa-
tion is here!" Smiles appear on
their faces as they rush outdoors
to greet the vehicle.
From it emerges a driver and a
white haired woman, greetings
and good wishes for a happy
Hannukah are exchanged. The
Association volunteers bring out
brightly wrapped gift packages
and platters heaped with jelly
donuts, Israel's traditional
pastry for Hannukah. The sides
of the truck are opened to reveal a
television screen for watching
videotapes or a live broadcast;
there are stacks of books and
games which can be selected to
help pass the lonely hours. After
the gifts have been opened and
the coffee and donuts served,
pleasant conversation takes
place. The volunteers of A.W.S.I.
tell the soldiers how much the
people of the country and Jews
everywhere appreciate what they
are doing and how proud they are
of them. They also tell them how
aware they are of the difficulties
of duty in this isolated spot.
After an hour or so, they leave to
reach the next outpost before
Day after day, whether in the
cities or the far flung borders, the
Association for Welfare of
Soldiers in Israel helps in dozens
of ways to make the life of Is-
rael's brave, young soldiers a
little easier. More importantly, it
is the presence and link with
civilian life that shows the
soldiers that they are appreciated
and loved by the Jewish people
The Association, now consist-
ing of over 13,000 volunteers in
Israel and supported by Jews and
non-Jews around the world, was
created forty years ago. It began
its work when Jews, in what was
then Palestine, organized the
Jewish Brigade to fight the Nazis
alongside the British Forces.
Since then, the Association has
with the blessing of the govern-
ment of Israel provided the sup-
port system that helps sustain
the high morale and splendid
spirit that has been the hallmark
of the Israel Defence Forces.
Clubhouses, rest and recrea-
tion centers, books and gift
parcels, religious articles, low
cost hotels in cities, roadside
shelters and canteens are but
part of the vast program the As-
sociation finances and admin-
isters to benefit Israel's young
men and women while they serve

embarked on its largest project to

TOP Holds Tax
Planning Seminar
The TOP Jewish Foundation,
endowment and planned gift
development arm for The Jewish
Community, sponsored a tax
planning seminar for lawyers,
accountants, insurance advisers
and investment advisers. The
topic presented was "Tax Plan-
ning Through Philanthropy" and
focused on the estate tax, income
tax and financial planning
objectives that can be
accomplished through a
charitable giving device.
The featured speaker at the
seminar was Mr. Paul Feinberg, a
noted tax attorney from Cleve-
land, Ohio. Paul is a partner in
the nationally known firm of
Baker and Hostetler. Prior to his
joining the firm, Mr. Feinberg
was Director of Corporate
Development of Premier Indus-
trial Corporation in Cleveland.
He also served for six years as
Assistant General Counsel for
The Ford Foundation in New
York. In addition to his profes-
sional credentials, Mr. Feinberg
has served on the board of the
Cleveland Federation and is
actively involved on the Legal
and Tax Committee of the
Federation's endowment fund.
Mr. Feinberg emphasized to
the professionals the key role
that they can play as a catalyst in
the area of community philan-
thropy. Since their clients come
to them for tax planning,
investment or financial planning
advice, it is imperative that they
be in a position to give their
clients all tax saving sugges-
tions, including those associated
with philanthropy. Feinberg used
examples from his experience and
that of his colleagues to show
how some very significant tax
and financial planning goals can
be achieved by tying in a creative
charitable gift.

fund program works and how you

planning objectives by making

Teacher Dismissed for Propaganda
Menken, a 46-year-old teacher at
the government-run navigation
school in Stade, Lower Saxony,
has been ordered dismissed for
disseminating anti-Semitic pro-
paganda in 1979.
Menken claimed that the gas
chambers were a lie and, in ar-
ticles in local newspapers, ac-
cused Jews of preparing a plot to
annihilate the German people.
Government authorities in Lower
Saxony took no disciplinary mea-
sures against Menken until
forced to by public opinion.
When the matter was finally
brought to the court, the punish-
ment asked for was a 10 percent
cut in his salary for an 18-month
period. The panel of judges or-
dered him fired. He may appeal.

Media's Double Standard
The tragic history of the Palestinian
people lies in the fact that when they are
slaughtered by their own people and other
Arabs, the world remains silent. Such as
has been the case clearly demonstrated by
the fierce fighting which has erupted in and
around the coastal Lebanese city of Tripoli.
50 miles north of Beirut.
Palestine Liberation Organization Chief
Yasir Arafat and several thousand of his
supporters engaged in combat with Syrian-
backed dissident members of the PLO. The
outcome is heavy with casualties: more
than a thousand civilians including women
and children are reported to have been
killer and wounded.
Arafat has been having difficult times
with his hold on the leadership of the PLO
since he was ousted from Beirut in the
summer of 1982. From there, he and his
entourage moved to various locations only
to take refuge near Tripoli. This, he did,
while at the same time becoming an in-
ternational media star, flirting with
President Reagan's Middle East peace
initiative and all the while claiming
unqualified victory for the Palestinians. He
was backed into a corner in Beirut and '
finally into Tripoli. No matter what the
outcome, the events present a stark lesson
in international diplomacy.
The Arab states, contrary to public
statements, never paid much attention to
the Palestinian people.
The United Nations, which kept
busy last year condemning
Israel over and over again during the Peace
for Galilee operation, has not once called for
a UN session on the fighting in Tripoli.
The double standard applied to Israel
has again been demonstrated. The editorial
writers in Washington and New York have
been silent, and it takes little recall to
remember the vicious anti-Israel attacks
almost daily in American newspapers. The

Arabs Must Feel Israel's Permanence
Friday, November 18,1983
Volume 5
Number 39
NABHI BERRI is the leader
of Amal. This is the outfit that
was originally thought to be be-
hind the terrorist bombing on
Oct. 23 of the Marine compound
in Beirut. Now, the State Depart-
ment isn't quite so sure.
Amal represents most of the
Shi'ites in Lebanon, and Bern is
anxious to separate his faction
from what is conceived of as the
more intransigent Shi'ite com-
munity in Iran.
BERRI, for example, explains
his view of Israel: "We (the Leb-
anese) have good weather and
agriculture, and we need Arab
markets. At the same time, the
Israelis are our adversaries in
this respect. They have good sea
and good weather, and their ap-
ples are better than ours. They
are our competition, so it's in our
interest to be with the Arab
world, not with the Israelis."
Isn't that cute? Apples these
are what place the Jewish Slate
into an adversarial relationship
with the Arab world. Apples, no-
thing more. Surely, Berri must be
a sweet man. For him, the infi-
nitely complex tangle involving
the Israel-Arab impasse over
which four bloody wars have been
fought since 194^ is nothing more
than a case of sweete: apples.
No wonder the State Depart-
ment now has reason to remove
Amal from the list of suspects for
the terrorist bombing of the
Marine compound. Apples. What
sort of damage can they do? Es-
pecially if you can forget Adam
and Eve, for the moment,
AN ARTICLE Oct. 18 by Ben-
jamin Netanyahu in the Wall
Street Journal suggests an alter-
native view. Says Netanyahu:
"The belief in Israel's perman-
ence is the key to peace between
the Jewish majority and the Arab
minority" in Israel.
Just so long as the Arabs are
led to believe that Israel can be
erased from the map of the Mid-
dle East, they will continue to
make every effort to do the eras-
This is why the ambivalent
U.S. attitude toward Israel is so
especially dangerous an ambi-
valence marked particularly since
the war in Lebanon, but in fact a
Ehenomenon that seemed to be
Dm in the Yom Kippur War and
that emerged in unmistakable
terms during the Carter Admin-
istration's passionate love affair
with Anwar Sadat.
WHAT THE Arab leaders do
is to read into this ambivalence a
flagging U.S. commitment to Is-
rael's permanence. But not even
the most bitter critics of suc-
cessive U.S. administrations be-
lieve such a flagging commitment
really exists. Furthermore, the
U.S. commitment in the cause of
Israel is based on far more than
merely jaundiced domestic poli-
tical expediency. There is a
strong moral component in-
Still, troni the Arab point of
view, it is not hard to read other
messages into the cold realities of
U.S. foreign policy where the
expediency does lie and is so
often punitive of Israels highest
For example, the rejection of
Israel's offer of medical assist-
ance to Marines wounded in the
Oct. 2i terrorist bombing of their
compound in Beirut .mil a Penta-
gon spokesman s frank assertion
published in the New \urk Tunes
that the relusal was based on an
American unwillingness to offend
the Arabs.
NETANYAHU'S point in the
Wall Street Journal is therefore
oi extreme importance, and he
applies the issue ol permanence
to Arabs on the West Hank, as
well as to Israeli Arabs not in the
so-called occupied territories,
who constitute the Arab minor
ity's conviction that Israel is here
to stay."
It is this conviction,
Netanyahu believes, that ex-
plains "the absence of subver-
sion, or of any Israeli concern
about it," among them.
Argues Netanyahu: "This con-
viction is the foundation on
which the Arabs of Israel have
built their lives, despite incessant
anti-Jewish agitation and Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
terrorist threats" against them
for accepting the hegemony of Is-
rael as a reality.
Netanyahu couples this view
with an attempt to refute claims
that Israel cannot hold onto the
West Bank without becoming
militaristic and otherwise
politiciaUy oppressive. And,
indeed, without losing Israel's
Jewish identity because, ultim-
ately, the Arabs will simply out-
populate them by a highly fecund
NATANYAHU says flatly
that "Malthusian projections of
Arab population trends, so un-
critically accepted, are un-
convincing. It is not inevitable
that the Jewish majority will be
engulfed." In Netanyahu's view,
the Arab birthrate "has been de-
clining steadily. It fell to 5
children per family in 1981 from
8.4 in 1965, and it is expected to
approach the Jewish rate (now
leveling off at 2.7) in the next 15
to 20 years."
Whether or not Malthusian
theory with respect to Arab po-
pulation trends works for or
against Israel, Netanyahu's
other premise with respect to
terrorism in Israel and the territ-
ories is startling. Whatever the
media make of occasional minor
incidents, it dn*s appear that
Netanyahu argues pertinently
when he explains this by the fact
thut "the Arabs living there
recognize the irreversibility of a
Jewish presence."
Not even the encouraging
pronouncements by outsiders
'that a transfer of power (in the
territories) to the FLO or Jordan
is still a possibility" shake these
Arabs of their view of Israel's

Reagan Plan Need
Department suggested that the
violence over the weekend in the
West Bank demonstrated the
need to work toward implement
ing President Reagan's Septem

At the same time, Department
deputy spokesman Alan Ron-
berg placed part of the blame for
the unrest in the West Bank on
the concern of the Palestinians
there over the righting in Tripoli
between Yasir Arafat's
decimated Palestine Liberation
Organization force and Syrian-
backed dissident Palestinians
"We very much regret the in-

U.S. Aid Up Over Last Year
By JTA Services
JERUSALEM Israeli offi-
cials are deeply gratified over the
US. military and economic aid
package for fiscal year 1984
which the House of Representa-
tives approved last Thursday.
It is not only the largest
amount of aid ever voted for
Israel but allows the Israelis to
U9e S550 million in military
credits toward building their
aecond generation jet fighter-
bomber, the Lavie, an issue
which had generated controversy
within the Reagan Administra-
tion and among American mili-
tary aircraft manufacturers.
The aid package which the
House approved by a 224-189
vote totals (2.61 billion,
compared to $2.48 billion in fiscal
1983. The new allocation contains
11.7 billion in military credits and
$910 million in economic grants.
Of the military credits, $850 mil-
lion is "forgiven" meaning it
does not have to be repaid.
The use of military credits to
develop the Lavie was approved
over the objections of Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger
who argued that the warplane
would not increase Israel's mili-
tary capability but would be an
economic asset inasmuch as it is
designed for export.
cappv Denies opposing
strategic Tie
Secretary Caspar Weinberger has
denied that he has opposed ef-
forts by the Reagan Administra-
tion for strategic cooperation
with Israel. "We have had Israel
as a strong ally and a strategic
working arrangement with them
has been in effect for many years,
almost since the creation of the
State," Weinberger said in
response to questions at the
Foreign Press Centei here last
Thursday. "There is no change
whatsoever in that relationship,"
hi1 stressed.
There have been repeated
published reports that Weinber-
ger has sought to block Secretary
of Slate George Shultz's efforts
for closer ties with Israel. No De-
fense Department official accom-
panied Under-secretary of State
Lawrence Kagleburger during his
recent visit to Israel.
By plo Are well
TEL AVIV Representatives
of the International Red Cross
visited six Israeli prisoners of
war held by the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization in Tripoli, Leb-
anon, last week where Yasir
Arafat and his loyalists were
making a desperate last stand
against attacking PLO dissidents
backed by Syria.
According to reports from
Geneva, the six Israelis are well
and are in the hands of pro-
Arafat elements. But the Red
Cross has not been able to visit
two other Israeli POWs held
captive by Ahmed Jibril's Popu-
lar Front for the Liberation of
Palestine-General Command, an
extremist, anti-Arafat terrorist
group under the PLO umbrella.
Creeks Seen More
Friendly to Israel
BONN Greece's attitude
toward Israel has become more
friendly and open since that
country succeeded West Ger-
many in the rotating chairman-
ship of the European Economic
Community's (EEC) Council of
Ministers, diplomatic circles here
have noted.
Among the EEC member
states, Greece was the most out-
spoken critic of Israel, especially
after the invasion of Lebanon ;on
June, 1982. The Israelis were
therefore pleasantly surprised
when, under the chairmanship of
Athens, no new EEC initiatives
were launched against Israel, and
the "financial protocol"
providing EEC credits to Jerusa-
lem was implemented.
A Greek diplomat posted to
Bonn told an Israeli representa-
tive that his government, bow-
ever sympathetic to the Arab
cause, has reassessed some of its
positions on Middle East issues.
The diplomat explained, ac-
cording to sources here, that the
Arab world, and the oil producing
countries in particular, have done
nothing to reward Greece politi-
cally or economically for its long-
standing support.
Ties to Bonn Clouded
By weapons to Saudis
eign Minister Yehuda Ben-Meir
warned of a "cloud" that could
darken Israeli-German relations:
the possibility that Bonn might
sell advanced weaponry to Saudi
Arabia or other Arab countries.
Delivering a keynote speech on
the opening day of the annual
meeting of the Israel-Germany
Friendship Associations, Ben-
Meir said Israel could not agree
with nor acquiesce in such a
prospect. Israeli sources forecast
intensified diplomatic action by
Jeruslem in the weeks ahead
designed to forestall any arms
Recently, following Chancellor
Helmut Kohl'8 visit to Saudi
Arabia, German officials sought
to distinguish between offensive
weapons such as the Leopard 2
tank, and defensive weapons
such an anti-tank devices and
anti-aircraft systems. But Israel
has declared tirmly that it recog-
nizes no such distinction.
Israel Must Talk
Business to Syria-Oz
BOSTON Amos Oz, the Is-
raeli novelist and peace activist,
said here that Israel must "talk
business with Syria" if it is to be
able to withdraw its troops from
Lebanon. "Lebanon is irrestor-
able," he told a group of students
several days ago. "I think it is
doomed. I think Syria is going to
have it one way or another."
He noted that Syria had lived
up to its part of the 1974 Golan
Heights agreement and had
maintained an "enduring cease-
fire" there. Israel, Oz contended,
should offer to recognize Syria's
"claims in Lebanon in return for
a durable ceasefire or more" on
Israel's northern border.
Oz spoke to the students fol-
lowing a speech he gave at Har-
vard University, sponsored in
part by the Boston Friends of
Peace Now, entitled, "Certain Is-
raeli Perspectives." He is cur-
rently in the United States to
promote his new book, "In the
Land of Israel."

Graphic Works of Israel Opens
Friday, Nov. 18 At The Grintei
Galleries Univ. of Florida
An exhibit of contemporary
lithographs by Israeli artists
entitled "Graphic Works of Is-
rael" will be on display at the
Grinter Galleries from Nov. 18
through Dec. 16. This exhibit is
sponsored by the Embassy of
Israel, the Institute of Students
and Faculty on Israel, and the
Israel Club. There will be an
opening reception on Thursday
evening, Nov. 17, 7:30 p.m., at
the Grinter Galleries.
The Israeli artists featured in
this exhibit are Igal Tumarkin,
Gad Oilman, Pinhas Cohen-Gan,
Noemi Smilansky, Moshe Hoff-
man, and Ziva Lieblich. This
exhibition was organized by the
Israeli Ministries of Foreign
Affairs and Education and
Culture to show a wide public
both in Israel and abroad, the
accomplishments of the cor
porary Israeli artist.
Most of the works are abs
in form, stemming from Pop-i
and conceptual art. Although |_
aim of these artists is to create i
art which knows no politi
boundaries, there is a sin
attempt to create a specif,
Israeli art that will point
direction in which contempon
Israeli art is heeded, and eva
more, paint a portrait of Isr
society in general.

[critical of the Admin-
istration's policy in Central
f America.
THE REFORM leader charged
that President Reagan's foreign
policy is one of "an obsession
with force," imposing "military
solutions on crises that are
political, economic and social in
their essence." Schindler said
that while it is true that the
Cubans and Russians "cynically
exploit" the miseries of the
peoples of Central America,
Reagan's response was "largely
counter-productive" because the
Administration has its eyes
"fixed on the superpower game
while ignoring all the local
I pawns."
He said that the Reagan
Administration policies "are
neither principled nor pragmatic.
They sow the wind with guns and
bullets and anti-Communist
rhetoric and have already reaped
the whirlwind of violence, death
and anti-American reactions."
Schindler called for "an end to
IJ.S. military intervention in El
(""Salvador and Honduras" and "an
end to the covert war against
Nicaragua." He proposed,
instead, that the Reagan
Administration "seek a
negotiated solution, proffer
support" for
Central American
"and make a
commitment" in
economic reform and social
SCHINDLER was also
sharply critical of the Reagan
Administration policies in the
Middle East. He said Israeli
officials with whom he met
recently, including Premier
Yitzhak Shamir, President
Chaim Herzog and Knesset
members, "were much concerned
about the vagueness and the
vacillations of American
diplomacy." He added that "the
constant and capricious shifts" in
U.S. policy "perplex them."
Commenting on the repeated
changes of Reagan Adminis-
tration policy in regard to Israel's
activities in Lebanon, Schindler
said he feared that the "fragile"
May 17 Israeli-Lebanese agree-
ment on the withdrawal of Israeli
forces from Lebanon and security
arrangements to follow "will be
the price that Israel is asked to
pay for success in the current
Geneva talks" on Lebanon's
national reconciliation.
He declared that the Reagan
Administration "must not broker
agreements one day and on the
next collaborate with one of the
sides to break it," an apparent
reference to Syria.
Focusing on the domestic
policies of the Reagan Adminis-
tration, Schindler noted that at
the UAHC assembly in Boston in
1981, the Reform movement
expressed doubts about the
course the U.S. was following
under Reagan. In his address in
Houston, he observed that "our
apprehensions were fully
justified. Reaganomics has
tightened this nation's belt
around the necks of the poor."
The inflationary cycle "has been
broken, but only by means of a
most severe recession," Schindler
THE REFORM leader also de-
nounced the policy of the Soviet
Union toward its Jewish citizens.
He termed the Soviet regime
"brutal" and "primitive" and
"frightened by the human spirit"
demonstrated by Soviet Jews
enduring persecution and abuse
for seeking to emigrate. He said
Reform Jews must "speak up for
the rights of Russian Jews and
for Ethiopian Jews, too."
Turning to the role of Reform
Judaism in the area of religious
activities, Schindler urged the
delegates to approve a new
Reform Jewish unit to study all
phases of conversion to Reform
He described the goal of the
present UAHC Outreach Task
Force as that of a "positive effort
to come to grips with the reality
of intermarriage, to contain the
loss it threatens to our numerical
strength, and, if at all possible, to
convert that loss into a gain. He
said that the goals of the Out-
reach program were "to make
certain that the majority of inter-
faith marriages will result in the
conversion of the non-Jewish
partner to Judaism, and that the
majority of the children issuing
from such marriages will, in fact,

Highest Level
Israel. Egypt Hold Talks;
U.S. Hand Reported
JERUSALEM (JTA) The highest level
diplomatic dialogue between Israel and Egypt since the
outbreak of the war in Lebanon in June, 1982, is taking
place in Cairo.
David Kimche, director general of the Foreign
Ministry, is in the Egyptian capital for political talks
which Israeli sources said cover the entire gamut of
Middle East issues and a review of bilateral relations
between Israel and Egypt.
KIMCHE LEFT for Cairo, and was expected to
return ,. soon. He is accompanied by the Ministry's
legal aide, Elyakim Rubinstein. The two Israeli officials
are scheduled to meet with Egypt's Foreign Minister,
Kamal Hassan Ali, and to hold working sessions with top
officials of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry. Kimche may
also call on President Hosni Mubarak, though no meeting
between them was announced.
The Israeli sources said the visit emerged from
"Bilateral diplomatic contacts." They conceded, however,
that the United States has been applying pressure on
Egypt for some time to thaw the "cold peace" that has
existed since Israel invaded Lebanon. The sources firmly
denied that Kimche's visit was connected in any way with
the current tension in the region involving Syria and the

our work with non-affiliated
mixed marriage couples is
encouraging," Schindler said the
effort "established beyond doubt
that they, too, need not be lost to
us, that we can, if we but try,
regain them for our people." He
added that "there is no dilution
of our Jewishness when others
join our ranks. Quite the
contrary, our Jewishness is
enhanced because of them."
Noting that he had proposed
the Outreach program to the
Reform movement five years ago,
Schindler said a Joint Com-
mission on Outreach had been
created by the UAHC and the
Central Conference of American
Rabbis (CCAR) "to carry
forward" the Outreach program.
Dr. Mordecai Kaplan
Passes Away at Age 102
Dr. Mordecai Kaplan, the
founder of the Reconstruc-
tionist movement and con-
sidered one of the most in-
fluential scholars in the his-
tory of Judaism, died Nov.
8 at the Hebrew Home for
the Aged in Riverdale, N.Y.
He was 102 years old.
Many of the key developments
in Jewish life today are based on
concepts Kaplan developed
during his long career
concepts like the organic Jewish
community, Judaism as a
religious civilization with its
spiritual center in Israel, the syn-
agogue center and summer camp
movements, Jewish community
centers, the public celebration of
Bat Mitzvah, and an American
version of the European self-gov-
erning Jewish community
KAPLAN'S ideological history
was one of a struggle between the
Orthodox beliefs he was taught
and by which he lived, until he
decided that such a Jewish out-
look was incompatible with the
outlook of Jews born and raised
in the unique freedom of Ameri-
can life. Out of that struggle, the
Reconstructionist philosophy
emerged. He was denounced by
the Orthodox who put him in
herem (excommunication), a
somewhat less than drastic ban
in an open society.
Kaplan originally developed
Reconstructionism not as
another branch of Judaism but as
a stimulation to thinking in non-
Orthodox forums. His ideas pro-
foundly influenced Reform and
Conservative Judaism. But the
pressures for change which his
teachings generated lad to the
crystallization of the movement
in its own institutions.
One was the Society for the
Advancement of Judaism (SAJ),
the pilot Reconstructionist con-
gregation in Manhattan, which
Kaplan founded and served as
rabbi even while continuing his
teaching duties at the Jewish
Theological Seminary of America
and his busy schedule of writing
and lecturing.
KAPLAN ALSO founded the
Reconstructionist Rabbinical
College in Philadelphia and
taught in it. The Reconstruction-
ist movement also has a network
of congregations in many parts of
the United States and Canada, in
addition to the Mevakshei
Derech synagogue in Jerusalem,
and its own journal, "The Recon-
structionist. '
With the publication in the
1930's of his major work, "Juda-
ism aa a Civilization," Kaplan
delineated the basic structure of
his outlook, in which he defined
the elements of an "evolving reli-
gious civilization." This was to
be developed in his prolific
writing over many decades. A
bibliography of his printed works
on the occasion of his 100th
birthday included over 700 items.
Born in Lithuania, Kaplan
came to the U.S. with his parents
at the age of eight. A student at
the JTS from the age of 12,
Kaplan was ordained in 1902 and
began to serve as "minister" of
Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun
in New York. Later be became
the rabbi there after receiving his
ordination on a trip to Europe in
Kaplan was considered an in-
tellectual giant and was one of
the key figures, along with Judah
Magnes, Israel Fried lander and
Samson Benderly. in the devel-
opment of various intellectual
circles in New York before World
War I. One of his earnest acts
was the founding of Young
Rabbi Alexander Schindler
But Schindler stressed that the
Reform movement had done very
little research on the aspects of
conversion and he was therefore
proposing the creation of an Ins-
titute for Reform Jewish Public
Policy, jointly undertaken by the
UAHC. the CCAR and the
| Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion, the Reform
seminary, "to undertake such a
comprehensive study" of all
elements of mixed marriages and
Schindler declared that American
Reform Jews must do everything
possible to support Israel
"economically and politically and
with every resource at our
command." He said he was
making this statement despite
the refusal of the Orthodox-
dominated rabbinate in Israel to
recognize Reform Judaism.
He stressed that he "had
nothing against Orthodox Jews
per se. What I denounce is the
politicized element within
modern Orthodoxy that appeals
to the coercive power of (the
Israeli) State rather than to the
conscience of the individual
Noting that the discrimination
by the Orthodox establishment
against non-Orthodox Jews is
"a mockery" and "a perversion,"
Schindler said that "these
narrow-minded attitudes and
schemes are destructive of
Orthodoxy itself." He said
Reform Jews would have to fight
such conditions in Israel until
achieve that full equality
is our entitlement aa

Code Started Mobilization
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel Radio repeatedly
broadcast 14 code words Nov. 9 ordering military
reservists to report to predetermined assembly points.
The mobilization exercise for service personnel and
vehicles was planned some time ago, and military
spokesmen stressed it was not hostile in intent or a
response to the mobilization of Syria's reserves ordered
last week
THAT MESSAGE was directed especially toward
Damascus in an effort to reduce the tension which
escalated after the truck bomb attack on Israeli military
headquarters in Tyre. The Israelis held Syria responsible,
at least indirectly, but insisted that Israel was not
threatening any country.
Military spokesmen said the mobilization drill would
be of short duration.
