Aim to Improve Teaching About Jews
"We are facing the greatest
year-end cash collection challenge
in the history of the American
Jewish community. Our lifeline of
aid to our fellow Jews in Israel,
through the human support
programs of the Jewish Agency
and the Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, has been strained to the
breaking point," according to
Robert Loup, National Chairman
of the United Jewish Appeal, in a
message to Federation leadership
around the country.
"The financially beleaguered
government of Israel has already
been forced to cut back budget-
ary support for day care and
community center programs and
for university students, the
elderly, the handicapped, work-
ing mothers and pioneer settlers.
Thousands will be turning to the
Jewish Agency and the JDC to
take up the slack. As always, it is
those people least able to bear the
burden who are paying the high-
est price in human terms for the
economic instability in Israel.
The very people we have pledged
to help in our campaigns, are not
being helped enough because we
are not collecting and forwarding
enough cash," Loup concluded.
"Cash flow also affects the
ability of the Tampa Jewish Fed-
eration to meet its obligations,
and with over $60,000 in commit-
ments due from the Federation
each month for ongoing services,
there is a critical need for pay-
ment of pledges," Sam Blum

Canadian TV Dismisses
Newsman for Violation
TORONTO (JTA) The Canadian Television
Network (CTV) has dismissed its correspondent, Brian
Nelson, for an unauthorized appearance on a television
newscast in Abu Dhabi where he read a script that
referred to Israeli Premier Yitzhak Shamir as a "terrorist"
and to Israel as "the Zionist entity." The privately-owned
network said it was taking disciplinary action against
Nelson's field producer, Barry Bar net t.
NELSON CONFIRMED that he was fired and said
IJ* would consult a lawyer. Marjory Anthony, vice
I President for network relations, said that by agreeing to
I aPpear on the newscast, Nelson acted irresponsibly and
violated network rules by failing to obtain his employer's
The incident occurred while Nelson was covering
Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's visit to the
Persian Gulf states. According to Anthony, Nelson would
nave been dismissed even if there had been no derogatory
Jgmarks about Shamir and Israel in the newscast.
Federation Treasurer cited. Com-
mitments made to UJA and local
agencies were budgeted based on
promises made during the 1983
Campaign. Now is the time for
men and women who have not
completed their 1983 campaign
payments to do so.
Changes in federal income tax
rates make it advantageous for
most people to pay as much of
their campaign pledges to the
Tampa Jewish Federation as
possible before the end of 1983.
The individual giver benefits
because 1983 income tax rates are
generally higher than they will be
in 1984. Most contributors will
get a larger income tax deduction
from each dollar sent to the Fed-
eration prior to Dec. 31 than they
will for the same gift in 1984.
Maril Jacobs, Federation Vice
President and Cash Collections
Chairman urges anyone who has
not paid their 1983 pledge, or any
earlier campaign commitment, to
do so now. "A pledge is a
promise, and promises have
meaning only when they are ful-
filled. Cash payments, not just
pledges, help us keep the prog-
rams going," Jacobs concluded.
During the two-day conference,
two major local dailies, the St.
Petersburg Independent and the
Tampa Tribune, reporting on the
conference, published the names
of 150 refuseniks, most of them
.lews but including some Chris-
tians persecuted by Soviet of-
Speakers at the conference in-
cluded Rudin: Father John
Pawlikowski, professor of social
ethics at the Catholic Theological
1'ninn of the University of
Chicago: and Dr. David Taylor of
Orange Park, Fla.. a long-time
leader in the National and World
Council of Churches.
RUDIN SAID that perhaps
the most crucial battleground in
l he war against religious prejud-
ice is the classroom. Anti-Semit-
ism, racism and bigotry have no
place in our teaching materials
and school curriculums." He
described the work of the
AJCommittee in persuading
Christian educators to eliminate
anti-Jewish materials from their
texlliooks and teaching
Pawlikowski expressed
satisfaction that "many of the
traditional stereotypes of Jews
and Christians have disappeared
in recent decades" but he warned
that "a potential remains for con-
tinued distortion."
Taylor told the conference that
"our respective religious commit-
ments have tended to lead us at
limes to social and political
courses of action that set our
faith communities at odds with
one another," adding that
" maintaining 'faith without
prejudice' is crucial, both for our
religious self-identity for our
common life in society."
The conference was sponsored
by the Sarasota Ministerial As-
sociation, the Sarasota Jewish
Federation Community Relations
Council and the AJCommittee.
Greek Premier, Bronfman
In Talks in Athens
Contacts between
Greek and Israeli Socialists
were established for the
first time early last month,
and a private meeting be-
tween Prime Minister
Andreas Papandreou and
World Jewish Congress
President Edgar Bronfman
took place in the Greek
Premier's private home last
July, the WJC reports.
The meeting between Greek
and Israeli Socialists was held at
the Greek Foreign Ministry in
Athens and was disclosed by
"EEC Monitor," a digest of
European and European
Kconomic Community affairs
significant to the Jewish com-
munity which is published jointly
by the Britain-Israel Public
Affairs Committee and the WJC.
THE MEETING, which lasted
one-and-a-half hours, brought
together three officials of the
International Department of the
ruling Pan Hellenic Socialist
Movement (Pasok) and Dr.
Avram Rozinker, international
secretary of Mapam. According
to the "Monitor," the EEC has
applied pressure on the Greek
government to raise the level of
diplomatic relations with Israel.
Rozinker, who had taken the
initiative for the meeting, ex-
plained his party's views on the
issues arising from the Middle
East dispute. The two sides
agreed to continue these ex-
Bronfman's meeting with Pa-
pandreou was held at the Greek
leader's summer home in Corfu.
The two were joined by the pres-
ident of the Greek Jewish com-
munity. Joseph Lovinger, and
WJC executive director. Israel
Bronfman met with the Greek
Premier during a stopover on his
way to Israel to confer with the
then-Prime Minister Menachem
Begin. WJC sources reported
that Papandreou had indicated in
his conversations with Bronfman
a mnn> open-minded uttitndp on
relations with Israel than he had
in the past.

This new branch of Tampa
Jewish Social Service (TJSS) has
been made possible by a special

from the United Way of Tampa.
The goal of this project is to
make individual and family
counseling, designed to strength-
en and enhance personal and
family functioning, conveniently
available to the growing popula-
tion in the Northwest section of
Tampa, on a non-sectarian basis.
If the project is successful, there
is a good chance that this North-
west Counseling Service will be
funded by the United Way as
part of its regular support of
TJSS and service to the general
This new service office will also
enable Tampa Jewish Social
Service, as an affiliate of Tampa
Jewish Federation, to meet its
goal of increasing its ability to
offer needed and innovative
services to the Jewish and
general community. The TJSS
office remains at 112 Magnolia.
Segall also noted that a special
community advisory committee
under the chairmanship of Ronna
Fox, a resident of the area, has
been established to offer
guidance and direction to this
new project. Information
regarding the staff and specific
programs to be offered is ex-
pected shortly.
JNF Plans Tour To Israel
The Tampa Regional Office of
the Jewjsh National Fund has
announced that it will be con-
l, ducting its second tour to Israel.
The trip is planned for May 16
through May 30, 1984.
According to Judy Levitt, JNF
Tour Chairman, "This trip to Is-
rael will be unique. In addition to
visiting the prominent sites of Is-
rael such as the Knesset, Mas-
sada, Western Wall, Holocaust
Monument, etc., our tour will
also include spectacles of Israel
not normally visited. The Israeli
. agricultural miracle in the Negev,
[*-the new Pitchat Shalom settle-
ments created by settlers forced
to move in accordance with the
Camp David Peace Accord, the
new Outposts in the Galilee, and
much more. In addition, we will
have many opportunities to meet
with Israelis on a Kibbutz or
Moshav who work with the land
to insure Israel's survival."

to turn a barren land into one
which provides agriculture and
decent living conditions for the
residents of Israel. The JNF is

participants as to the "miracles
of Israel." The tour is planned so
that it will be just as exciting for

Frustrated by Failure
Administration Tarns from Courting Arabs
To Establishing Closer Ties With Troubled Israel
The Reagan Administra-
tion, frustrated by its
failure to get Syria to even
talk about withdrawing its
forces from Lebanon and to
persuade Jordan to join the
Middle East peace talks
based on President
Reagan's Sept. 1, 1982 ini-
tiative, came out of the
closet last week in its rela-
tions with Israel and
publicly announced that
the two countries were al-
This was how many here
viewed the announcement by
Reagan and Israeli Premier
Yitzhak Shamir following their
White House meeting Nov. 29, of
the creation of a joint U.S.-Israeli
political-military group as well as
several economic benefits for Is-
The Administration made it no
secret that the new closer ties
with Israel were aimed at sending
a message. It was a message to
Syria and the Soviet Union, an
Administration official said.
"And frankly to those that are
listening in the region," he ad-
"IT IS NOT a message of
threat of a military axis against
the Arabs," the official stressed.
"But we are both very concerned
about the great buildup of Soviet
weapons in Syria."
Another part of the message
came two days later, after
Reagan met with Lebanese Pres-
ident Amin Gemayel and reaf
firmed the U.S. commitment tc
the May 17 Lebanese-Israel
agreement for Israel's withdraw-
al from Lebanon. The President
rejected Gemayel s request for
changes in the agreement to ap-
pease Syrian-backed groups in
An official of the American Is-
rael Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) which has been pres-
sing for U.S.-Israeli strategic co-
operation for the past 18 months,
said that the agreement would
also convince the Syrians that
their aggression in Lebanon will
not succeed and convince the
various factions in Lebanon that
the Syrians will not give them
control of Lebanon "on a silver
THIS NEW approach of close
public strategic cooperation
between the U.S. and Israel was
opposed by the Arabists in the
State Department, by Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger
and others in the Defense De-
partment on the grounds that
such an open alliance would en-
danger U.S. relations with the
Arab countries. An AIPAC offi-
cial noted that up to now the
policy seemed to be to "work
with anyone but Jews."
The day after Reagan and
Shamir made their announce-
ment, Prince Bandar, the Saudi
Arabian Ambassador to Wash-
ington, brought Reagan a letter
from King Fahd and told re-
porters that "Israel is a strategic
liability to America."
Clovis Maksoud, the Arab
League representative here, was
quoted as saying, the Arabs will
have to make "a painful reassess-
ment of Arab-US. relations" and

King Hussein of Jordan, in an
interview in Amman with Amer-

when the U.S. and Israel signed
the aborted Memorandum of
Understanding on strategic co-
operation in 1961.
U.S. officials also emphasized
that Shamir was told that the
U.S. has to have friends in the
Arab world. They gave as
examples, Saudi Arabia, Jordan
and Egypt and explained that
from time to time it is necessary
to supply them with arms. Also
stressed by the Administration
was that both Reagan and Sec-
retary of State George Shultz re-
peatedly told Shamir that Is-
rael's policy of establishing
settlements on the West Bank is
an obstacle to the peace process.
An Administration official said
the Israelis made no secret that
they will not change this policy.
Shamir himself told the National
Press Club last Wednesday that I
Israel has never given a commit-
ment not to build villages and
cities in Judaea and Samaria.
ficial made a telling point on this
subject. "The Israeli position is
only going to be changed by the
arrival at the negotiating table of
another Arab" such as Hussein,
he said. While Shamir did not
confirm this, he did stress at the
National Press Club, that "We
are committed to negotiate about!
the political future of the politicall
status of these territories ofl
Samaria, Judaea and Gaza andl
we are faithful to this commit I
ment." He added that he believed
once negotiations resume and ifl
they are not interrupted again!
"we will be successful."
Last week's events have notl
left Israel or its supporters in the I
U.S. in a state of euphoria. Ac|
cording to the agreement out)
lined by Reagan, combined planj
ning, joint exercises and stock-
piling U.S. equipment in Israel I
are among the subjects to be]
considered by the joint group]
which will have its first meeting
in January in Washington.
Thomas Dine, AIPAC's ExeJ
cutive Director, said last weed
that the Reagan-Shamir meetingl
was an "important step forwardl
but it produced "a bottle hatfl
full." Whether the results will bel
"durable" depends on whether!
the agreements reached arel
implemented, he said. But bel
warned that the actual imple-l
mentation will be left to some of-1
ficials "who oppose any visible!
dealings with Israel."
noted that the incident after thel
terrorist bombing of the U5.I
Marine headquarters in Beirut inl
which the U.S. refused to sendl
wounded to nearby Israeli hos-l
pitals has convinced many in thel
Administration that this policy
of refusing visible alliances with)
Israel hurts the U.S.
AIPAC officials stress that I
they have been told that Reagan
is determined to see this new al-
liance carried through. The nen
few months will be critical as the I
groundwork is begun.
The Administration admitted |
last week that strategic coopera-
tion with Israel was necessary I
because it was in the interests of
the U.S., in addition to whatever
benefits Israel receives from it.
"If we are supported by the
United States it is because by our
existence, by our activities in the
Middle East we are suppor
also American interests," Shamir
told the National Press Club.
But if there is no movement in
Lebanon, if the Syrians continue
to refuse to leave, if Gemayel
makes no gains toward national
reconciliation, will the Admin-
istration then scrap the long term
benefits of strategic cooperation
because there are no immedht*
short term results? This is th
real test of last week's WWte
House announcement.

Rabbi Lewis C. Littman, Re-

Hebrew Congregations, will give
a benefit concert Saturday
evening, Dec. 17, at the St.
Petersburg Junior College Fine
Arts Auditorium on the Clear-
water campus.
The proceeds from the per-
formance will be used to purchase
books with Judaic content for the
on-going Jewish Studies program
at the University of South
John Lott Brown, President of
USF, said in a recent statement
that the State University System
libraries are sorely lacking in
many areas. It has become ob-
vious not only to students, but
also to professors in the College
of Arts and Letters and the So-
cial Sciences that one of the glar-
ing needs is for volumes and
periodicals with Judaic content.
The University is unable to fill
this void at the present time. As
a result many business and
professional people in the Tampa
Bay Area have stepped in to help
the library.
Rabbi Littman, served as
Cantor of Temple B'nai Israel in
Clearwater during the High Holi-
days, and has expressed his
excitement about the Jewish
Studies program at USF and is
delighted to perform in the Bay
Area on its behalf. The tickets are
$10 for adults, $6 for children
under 12. Tickets are available

Herzog's Remarks About POWs
Stir Wide Public Controversy
JERUSALEM (JTA) President Chaim He
has become involved in controversy since his public
mark that the six Israeli soldiers released in a prisoner
war exchange with the Palestine Liberation Organizati
had surrendered "shamefully" to the PLO when they w
captured in Lebanon in September, 1982.
HERZOG HAS MET with the parents of the s
soldiers. They have accused him of singling out their so
for unjust condemnation. The President said on a teli
vision interview that he had intended no person
criticism of the young men when he "absolutely agreed"
with former Chief of Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan that they didl
not deserve the heroes' welcome they received on theirj
return from captivity.
The Israel Defense Force must decide the dr-|
cuinstances of their case, Herzog said. He explained that
it was his intention only to stress the vital need to
maintain the IDF's high standards and traditions of
soldierly conduct.

goal of BBYO is to allow youth to

second major goal is to encourage
personal growth and leadership
skills through chapter, council
and upper level program experi-
ences designed to challenge and
nurture the young curious mind.
BBYO youth assume increased
personal responsibility in the
functioning of their group as they

in aliya has dropped sharply, and
it is expected that younger Jews
will lose interest in community
issues and will, instead, become
active in the general field.
ANOTHER development that
has clouded the picture concerns
foreign policy. The future For-
eign Minister, Dante Caputo,
stated to the Kuwait News
Agency that the constitutional
government of Argentina would
recognize the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization as the "legiti-
mate representative of the Pales-
tinian people," adding, however,
that it would not be granted dip-
lomatic status.
The return to democracy will
give Argentina a much more sig-
nificant role in Latin America,
Tenenbaum noted. It is likely
that Argentina will exert a
greater influence on the con-
tinent, and the attitudes which
the Alfonsin government takes in
international politics will have
great repercussions. Israeli
diplomats and the Jewish com-
munity are waiting not
without some concern for the
formulation of Argentina's new
government's position on the
issues of the Middle Eaat .
Youth participate in local and
international leadership training
institutes which are conducted by
professional staff throughout the
year. Michelle Fishman from
Tampa serves this year as
Florida State BBG Vice Presi-
dent and coordinated the annual
Leadership Training Conference
held in Miami in October. Tampa
youth will attend the BBYO Re-
gional Convention to be held in
December 19-23. This summer
youth will participate in interna-
tional summer Judaism and lead-
ership programs held at B'nai
B'rith camps in Wisconsin and
Pennsylvania and on tour in Is-
rael. The three week Internation-
al Leadership Training Confer-
ence held at B'nai B'rith Perlman
Camp has been described by a
senior vice president of A., T. and
T. as "The finest practical leader-
ship program in the country."
BBYO is open to all high
school Jewish youth. The oppor-
tunity for healthy, challenging,
educational and social experi-
ences is the drawing power of the
,BBYO program. Many members
may have lead a marginal Jewish
life prior to their participation.
Most are now aware of the total
Jewish community, with its
agencies and issues, as a result of
their participation in BBYO.
BBYO may be interested in
starting groups in the Carrol-
wood area if interest is present.
