'84 Campaign Goal Tops Two-Thirds Mark
The Tampa Jewish

Appeal 1984 Community
Campaign has exceeded the two-
thirds mark on its way to the $1.2
million goal," reports John
Osterweil, general campaign
chairman. Over $800,000 has
been raised to date and that
represents a 19 percent increase
over last year. More than $20,000
has been added to the campaign

Precious LegacyA Celebration to Life
Federation's B&P Network and CRC
Invite Community to Special Evening
Monday, Feb. 27, at 7:30 p.m.
at the Marriott Hotel, Cypress at
Westshore, the Women's
Division, Business and Profes-
sional Women's Network, and
Community Relations Committee
of the Tampa Jewish Federation
will co-sponsor a special slide
presentation for the community
on the "Precious Legacy A
Celebration to Life," to be
presented by Professor Mickey
Teicher, art historian on the
faculty of Florida International
University, Miami.
The "Precious Legacy"
Exhibit currently on view at the
Bass Museum in Miami, is on
loan from the Czechoslovak State
Museum through a special
arrangement between the Smith-
sonian Institution and the
Czechoslovak government, and is
touring select cities in the United
States. The exhibit contains 360
religious and secular objects,
ranging from works of superb
craftsmanship to folk art, which
document the artistic, cultural
and historical tradition of the
Jews in Bohemia and Moravia
from the Middle Ages to the
Reservations have closed for
the community trip on March 4.
For those who cannot make the
trip to Miami, this is a chance to
see and hear about this exhibit.
For those planning to go on that
trip, Professor Teicher will
provide a preview and better
awareness of the ceremonial
objects of our Jewish heritage
from Eastern Europe.
Although there is no charge for
the evening, space is limited,
contact the Tampa Jewish
Federation at 876-1618 early to
make a reservation. In addition, a
limited number of copies of "The
Precious Legacy," edited by
David Altahuler, will be available
that evening.
Community will continue to
respond and our 1984 goal can be
reached," Osterweil stated.
The theme of the 1984 Cam-
paign "Share the Vision" is
illustrated through the programs
and services supported and
sustained by the annual Tampa
Jewish Federation Campaign.
Focusing on present achieve-
ments and hopes for the future in
Tampa, in Israel and wherever
Jews live throughout the world,
the Campaign has provided funds
in Tampa for recreational and
cultural activities, Jewish educa-
tion, community relations, and
social services for all ages. The
Federation allocates money to
support a full range of services
for the elderly, including
sponsorship of the Jewish Towers
and the Mary Walker apart-
ments. Senior Programs,
counseling, Kosher hot lunch
program, and River Garden
Home for the aged in Jackson-
ville. A wide range of youth acti-
vities from pre-school through
college age are beneficiaries of the
Federation campaign.
In the future, with contri-
butors' help, Federation plans to
continue its active program of
welcoming Jewish newcomers
through the Shalom Tampa
program; to provide the "Jewish

Chile Urged to Extradite Rauff
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith has
called on Chile's Minister of
Interior, Sergio Onofre
Jarpa, to act affirmatively
on the request of his
country's Jewish commu-
nity that Nazi war criminal
Walter Rauff be expelled
from Chile. During World
War II, some 250,000 Jews
were murdered in Europe
by the movable gas vans
invented by Rauff.

FOXMAN ALSO cabled West
German Justic Minister Hans
Engelhard calling on his govern-
ment ot request that Chile expel
Rauf so that the Federal Republic
of Germany could bring him to
trial there. Engelhard replied
that his government "is now
investigating what measures can
be taken or solution found"
regarding Rauff s expulsion or
extradition to the Federal
Republic. Foxman said.
Meanwhile Foxman disclosed
a number of other developments
in connection with Rauff:
B'nai B'rith of Chile, acting
on behalf of B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional presented a letter to
Interior Minister Onofre jarpa
urging him to favorably consider
the request of the government of
Israel that Rauff be expelled.
Leaders of the Peruvian
Jewish community met in Lima
with Chilean Embassy officials to
also call for Rauff s expulsion for
his "crimes against humanity."
They told the Chilean diplomats
that the statute of limitations
does not apply to such crimes.
There has been increasing
support from the non-Jewish
community of Chile to expel
Rauff with demonstrators
outside his home calling him a
"Nazi assassin" and demanding
he be tried for war crimes.
Foxman said that because the
government forced thousands of
Chileans into exile for political
reasons many in Chile, the war

deprived of their nationality and
forced to live outside of Chile?"

Through their commitment to
the 1984 campaign, Tampa's
Jewry can help Israel to maintain
its preeminence in the fields of
high technology by helping to
train scientists, researchers and
skilled technicians, assist the
Jewish Agency and the Joint
Distribution Committee in filling
the gaps due to government
welfare and spending cuts. They
can help maintain Youth Aliyah
programs, thus providing
residential education to children
from distressed families and
support social programs geared
to close the gaps between
Ashkenazic and Sephardic
populations. Tampa's contri-
butions can help provide
sheltered workshops for the
elderly and retarded, and
maintain day-care centers for
45,000 children.
Hillel School of
Tampa To Break
Ground At JCC
The Hillel School of Tampa wul
bold groundbreaking ceremonies
for its new classroom facility on
Sunday, March 4 at the Jewish
Community Center from 10 to 12
noon. The ceremonies will be at
the classroom site.
The Hillel School wul occupy
the northeast corner of the
Jewish Community Center
campus at the corner of S.
Habana Avenue and W. Horatio
Street. The classrooms will be
ready for occupancy by August.
The modular construction
plans call for a single building
containing 9,360 square feet of
classroom and administrative
space including a science
laboratory. The JCC will also
make available the auditorium,
library, gym athletic fields and
"Having children from the
Hillel School of Tampa here will
be delightful," said Marty Pear,
Executive Director of the Jewish
Community Center. "We anti-
cipate after school programming
geared to the Hillel School's
schedule, making ft convenient
for all. It will be good for Hillel
and good for the JCC."
The $42,000 project,
to a spokesman for the
School of Tampa, is mad* pos-
sible by the support of friends in
the community and the coopera-
tion of Congregation Rodeph
Sholom and the former Beth
Israel Congregation. It was the
merger of these two congrega-
tions which provided the impetus
for Hillel School to have a
building of its own.
Richard Gordimer is President
of Hillel School and Stanford
Solomon is chairman of the
Building committee.
"This is a fantastic move
forward for the Tampa Jewish
Community. It will benefit the
Hillel School of Tampa and the
Jewish Community Center. It
will enable Hillel School to
continue providing the high
quality education we expect. The
Tampa Jewish Federation is
proud of the role it has played in
bringing this about," said Gary
After, Executive Director of the
Tampa Jewish Federation.
The groundbreaking will
feature community, local, state
and federal dignitaries. Refresh-
ments wul be served and the
entire community is invited to
share in the celebration.

"U.S. policy toward the status
of Jerusalem is riddled with
contradictions," claims the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC). "It is a
policy which from its very incep-
tion never corresponded with
Jerusalem's changing reality."
In an eye-opening study,
entitled "U.S. Policy Toward
Jerusalem, the Capital of Israel,"
AIPAC researcher Sara M.
Averick traces the history and
examines the inconsistencies
found in Washington's present
For example, in no other
country in the world is the
American Embassy located
outside the administrative
capital; even the American
Embassy to communist East
Germany is located in East
Berlin although the U.S. does not
recognize Berlin as the capital of
the German Democratic
Thus, says AIPAC. "the
United States has one consistent
rule for the rest of the world,
including a member of the
Warsaw Pact, and another
unjustified rule for Israel, a
friend and ally."
Other inconsistencies include
the fact that Washington has
since 1967, espoused the principle
of an "undivided" Jerusalem,
refusing to acknowledge the
reality that the city is already
unified. Moreover, the U.S.
insists that the city be both
united and yet subject to nego-
tiations, implying that even west
Jerusalem could be handed over
to the Arabs.
The study also analyzes the
development of this policy,
breaking it down into three
stages. For 19 years, between
1948 and 1967, Washington
refused to acknowledge the
partition of the city between
Israel and Jordan, choosing
instead to support "a completely
imaginary alternative" in-
After Jerusalem was reunited
in June 1967 until 1969. the U.S.
declared its commitment to a
united city whose status was
"subject to negotiations." Since

"A change in this anomalous
and anachronistic policy is long
overdue," concludes AIPAC.
"For more than three decades.
U.S. policy has avoided the
reality that Jerusalem is, has
been, and always will be the
capital of Israel."
The study reveals that most
Americans accept this reality.
Drawing upon public opinion
polls, AIPAC shows that a size-
able majority of Americans not
only supports Israeli control over
a unified Jerusalem, but also
believes that Jerusalem should be
recognized as the capital of

hearings on legislation to move

director, observes that "senti-
ment has been building among
many members of the United
States Senate and of the House of
Representatives to end this
affront to the Jewish State and to
bring U.S. policy in line with the
reality that Jerusalem is and will
remain the capital of Israel... It
is time for the U.S. to recognize

Israel's Anger With
Gemayel Seems
Entirely Justified
Israel's anger at the Gemayel govern-
ment's scrapping of the Israel-Lebanon
accord worked out so carefully last May 17
is both justified and understandable.
It brought an instant retaliatory military
operation last Sunday, when Israeli
warplanes pounded three Lebanese villages
in attacks upon guerrilla strongholds. Two
of these attacks were against targets east
of Beirut. The other was against the
southern Lebanese town of Damour.
Since the fatal change in the balance of
power in Lebanon and what appears to be
the imminent demise of the Gemayel
regime, it has been clear that Palestine
Liberation Organization terrorists are once
again filtering back into Lebanon to add to
the confusion in that hapless nation divided
by ancient enmities among Shiite and Suni
Muslims on the one hand and Maronite
Christians on the other.
All of this civil war has been com-
pounded in its problems by the Alawite-led
Syrian activity against Gemayel to get
him to abrogate his accord with Israel. In
this five-pronged struggle, the PLO plays
the role of sixth wheel a wheel Syria's
President Assad sent careening out of
Tripoli and rolling toward a second PLO
exile in almost as many years the first
having been Israel's destruction of the
PLO's forces in Beirut at the start of the
All of these complexities apart. Israel
must now deal with the arrogance of a
situation that finds a duly-signed political
instrument between itself and another
Arab nation scrapped as a result of the
inspired warfare by a second Arab nation.
With the stark image in Israel's mind of
the absolutely unbelievable behavior of
Egypt's Hosni Mubarak in Washington
last week, which now suggests the
abrogation of the Camp David accord itself,
no wonder the Israelis sent their jets out
storming in a warning to the Lebanese:
Abrogated accord or no abrogated accord,
Lebanon cannot return to its previous
status of a staging area of terrorism
against northern Israel.
French Nazi Collaborators

Barbier. Jacques Vasseur and
Joseph CortiaJ were reduced to 20

pleting their sentences there no
was possible reason to keep them
in jail."
Barbier. now 64. was sentenced

the French gestapo faction in
Grenoble. He had also been a
member of the Waff en SS and
served on the Russian front

arrested in 1963 after hiding

The Effort to Cosmetize Assad
NOW THAT President Reag-
an has decided to move the
Marines from Beirut to naval
vessels off the shore of Lebanon,
there will be an increasing public
relations effort to show Syria as a
possible partner in the solution of
the problem that divides the
various factions of ultimate
Lebanese sovereignty.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson's
crude efforts to present President
Hafez Assad as a responsible
leader anxious to do business
with the United states if only
those darned Jews weren't in the
way as a political hurdle in a
presidential election year is
hardly what I have in mind. But
there are variations on the
Jackson theme, including degrees
of the same approach.
FOR ONE thing. President
Assad wants this image of
himself as an Arab leader who,
above all. can be counted on to
keep his word we have already
been hearing about Assad's
alleged reliability for some
months now. It is a convenient
way for the Administration to
rationalize the President's new
and violent reversal of his
Lebanese policy.
Already, we see the result of
the reveral. The Israeli bombings
Sunday in the Damour area were
greeted with the kind of
judgmental cable and network
television reporting that was
totally absent when the Shiites
and Christians were laying waste
to Beirut in their own struggle for
power a struggle that cable
and the networks found eq-
ually boring up until that tinv
Only Israeli bullets kill.
Apparently, no one else's in
Lebanon does. Furthermore, in
the view of these journali
minds, the hell with the (iemayel
decision to scrap the Lebanese
accord with Israel to which the
Reagan Administration was the
godfather. The Reagan reversal
of policy must inaugurate our
newest experiment in Middle
Eastern humanitarianism with
Israel, of course, as scapegoat.
BUT A State Department
report submitted jointly to the
House and Senate Foreign
Relations Committee in
February, 1983 suggests that we
ought not to be so positive about
the Syrian role in Lebanon or
about Assad as a mild-mannered
Clark Kent, now that the Marines
are being instructed to turn tail.
For instance, the 1983 State
Department report, with respect
to Syrian torture, declares that
"There have been numerous
credible reports of torture being
used (in Syria), primarily during
arrest and interrogation peri-
ods commonly used methods
of torture in recent years include
I l
beatings, whipping of'prisoners
suspended in tires, beatings on
the soles of the feet, cigarette
burns, sexual molestation and
electric shocks."
Perpetrators of this govern-
ment policy are members of
Syria's "Special Services," which
is a modernized version of the
Nazi Gestapo run by President
Assad's brother, Riffat Assad.
DURING 1982, the report to
the Senate and the House by the
State Department, ever ready to
rationalize Arab excesses, never-
theless declares that "the Syrian
regime continued to suppress
freedom of speech, press,
association and assembly and to
limit participation in the political
system. It pursued dissident
elements, carried out cordon-and-
search operations without judi-
cial safeguards large-scale
arrests, in many cases causing
persons to disappear. and
continued to engage in torture
and ot her brutal practices.''
the report: 'For the
third light year, anti-regime
:t\ !)> trie Musiim Brother-
hood in Hama resulted in harsh
repression by government forces.
The suppression of the 1982
uprising was particularly severe,
remitting in the destruction of
major parts of the city, the death
of thousands of people (personal
romment: International
Amnesty figures place this mild-
mannered assessment at 100,000-
plus) and the injury of many
Freedom of religion, a sup-
posed right in Assad's Syria,
fares no better. Says the report:
"The Syrian government is
dominated by members of the
Alawite sect, a minority (10
percent) of the population, which
is predominantly Sunni Muslim.
Alawites hold a disproportionate
share of prominent political and
military positions, and Sunni
Muslim. Christian, Druze and
Jewish citizens face varying de-
grees of discrimination The
Syria Jewish community, now
approximately 3,600-4.000
persons, exists under dose
governmental scrutiny and is
denied political participation."
THIS CLOSE "scrutiny-
includes the hideous case of Mrs.
Lillian Abadi. a Jewish Syrian
who was murdered in Aleppo on
Jan. 4. At the time of her murder.
she was pregnant. Murdered with
her were her two young children.
All were savagely mutilated
Mrs. Abadi's stomach, for
example, had been ripped open.
In totality, an Amnesty
International report, on the basis
of which some of the State
Department report was written,
in discussing human rights
violations in Syria, argues that
"There is overwhelming evidence
that thousands of Syrians not
involved in violence have been
harassed and wrongfully
detained without a chance of
appeal and in some cases have
been tortured; others are
reported to have 'disappeared' or
to have been the victims of ex-
trajudicial killings carried out by
the security forces," meaning
Riffat Assad's bully-boys.
For its own obvious purposes,
the Reagan Administration only
last week still clinging to the
May. 1983 Israel-Lebanon ac-
cord, is now willing to cut
Lebanon away as significant to
Middle East peace.
THIS MEANS that the
Reagan Administration is
prepared to condemn Israel for
taking the position that the
accord is central to its own
perspective of peace in the area
The reporting on television
already amply reflects this
reversal in policy trend in the
form of a renewed ant i-Israel
What must not be forgot t
this regard is Amnesty Inter-
national's argument that the
Syrians are of late guilty or
methods of ill-treatment and
torture reported by former
detainees. including electric
shocks, burnings, whipping-
braided steel cable, sexual
violations and the forcing of
detainees to watch relatives
being tortured or sexually
For example, one 15-year-old
boy "had been whipped and
his" interrogator had threatened
to gouge out his eyes if he did not
reveal his father's whereabouts."
ACCORDING to Amnesty
International, all of this is earned
out in "a sound-proofed torture
chamber in Aleppo equipped with
'torture tools.' including elec-
trical apparatus, pincers,
scissors, a machine used for
sexual violation and an im-
plement for ripping out
Aleppo, of course, is where
Mrs. Abadi met her brutal end.
Israel has just cause for its
concern about the Syrians m
Lebanon even if the Reagan
Administration no longer shares
this concern. Israel has just cause
if only from this point of view

nndon, a native of Madison,
I., brings with her a Masters
tee in Gerontology from the

nsrup during the summer of

uring this time she directed a
Brig and reminiscence group

She is in the process of
king on a grant for the
da Kndowment for the
panities entitled "Remini-
ce and Values." London ex-
ed this as "deeply satisfying
Ihe participants. It is rein-
ing and validating to one's
I life, reaffirming feelings and
i lences."
Ir more than 10 years Judy
led as a professional actress
major roles in works of
ht. Strindberg, O'Neill,
finl, and others on stages in
I York City, Boston, Wash-
|n. D.C., and London. As she
ded off her ambitions in the
Judy London
theater, she decided that this was
no longer satisfying to her.
But. she took her theatrical
experience to the Lighthouse for
the Blind with a project spon-
sored by the Arts Council of
Tampa and funded through the
Fine Arts Council of Florida, and
created and conducted a drama
improvisation workshop for
persons 50 and over with visual
and mental impairment.
Her main concern at this time
with the Seniors program will be
to continue to maintain the high
level of services and staff at the
Jewish Community Center and
learn about the program and
service needs of the community.
London feels that mental
health is closely connected to
spiritual well-being and plans to
develop programs toward that
She would like to see more vol-
unteer involvement in the
community and would like to
give the volunteer the op-
portunity of raising his level of
caring and growth. Communica-
tion will be the basic structure of
many programs.
The importance of Gerontology
fans the spark of London's in-
terest. She hopes to creatively
develop the inner growth of a
person's later years. This will
lead her to contacting the
isolated elderly and helping them
to establish meaningful supports
in the community.

too rare on the public scene
THERE IS general agreement,
Kayston observed, that the JTA
played an important and vital
role during these turbulent years
in collecting and disseminating
news affecting Jewish lives
everywhere. Little is known,
however, of some behind-the-
scenes stories in which JTA was
One such story, Kayston
recalled, was the deportation of
Boris Smolar, then JTA's chief
foreign correspondent, from
Berlin in 1937. He went to Nazi
Germany in 1933 to stay for a few
days to do a series of articles on
the plight of the Jews in Ger-
many and stayed for four years.
"His stay there was fraught
with danger. Propaganda
Minister Joseph Goebbels
alluded to this when he said that
Smolar was a 'courageous man'
for daring to send out reporters
about the Nazi regime. "
Kayston also recaneu that in
1945, immediately after the
Allied victory in Europe and the
liberation of the concentration
camp inmates, JTA was able to
obtain lists of survivors in
various countries under Nazi
occupation and sent them for
distribution in the United States
and other countries so that
relatives could get in touch with
the survivors.
Ther is no question, Kayston
said, "that the
ghts on the world he helped reporting of Smolar, JTA's chief
lhape. He expressed his belief foreign correspondent during the
1920's and 1930's, from Europe
and the Middle East helped to a
large extent to establish JTA s
credibility with the general
KAYSTON ALSO reported to
the Overseas News Agency
(ONA), founded in 1940 as a
subsidiary of the JTA. AT that
the past half century "is the
|t momentous period in
history. The two most
srtant events during that
id which profoundly affected
sh life," he said, "were
ler's murder of six million
the Holocaust, and the
i of the State of Israael."

time, some of the daily
newspapers which subscribed to
the JTA news service, especially
The New York Times, felt they no
longer could use the "Jewish
Telegraphic Agency" slugline,
because the name was too
"parochial" and implied biased
news reporting.
Partly as a result of this, Jacob
Landau, founder of the JTA and
its managing editor, enlisted the
help and expertise of such
prominent journalists as Herbert
Bayard Swope and William Allen
White in establishing a general
"non-Jewish" news agency. Hy
Wishengrad, JTA editor at the
time, became editor of the ONA
and Victor Bienstock its chief
foreign correspondent.
Within a year, ONA news was
carried by more than 50 daily
American and Canadian
newspapers. Its reporters and
correspondents included out-
standing journalists and writers
such as Theodore White, Meyer
Levin, David Schoenbrun, Elie
Abel, and Gabe Pressman.

"Throughout all my 48 years

had to fight for its independence.
Hardly a day passes when one or
another Jewish organization, or
some political faction in Israel,
does not want to dictate to JTA
editors how to run the agency
and what news to print and which
stories to suppress. JTA's inde-
pendence and its impartial
reporting are its most valuable
asset. If it should ever deviate
from this policy, it would lose its

its "political stability."
Patt stressed to the Americans
that whUe Israel would now be
getting all of its military and

Syria Blamed
For Worsening Mideast Situation
(JTA) Secretary of State
George Shultz blamed
"Syrian-sponsored vio-
lence" for the worsening
crisis in Lebanon, affirmed
U.S. support for the May
17, 1983 Israel-Lebanon
withdrawal and security
agreement, and pledged
continued U.S. "material
support for the Lebanese
armed forces as circum-
stances permit."
Shultz made his remarks at an
unscheduled press conference at
the State Department as reports
from Lebanon indicated a
worsening of the Lebanese ar-
my's position against Syrian-
backed Druze and Shiite Moslem
forces and the possibility that
President Amin Gemayel may
soon announce the abrogation ol
the May 17 accord as the price of
Syrian cooperation toward
national reconciliation in
"We continue to support the
May 17 agreement the Sec-
retary of State stressed. "Those
who would dispense with this
agreement must bear the respon-
sibility to find alternative for-
mulas for Israel's withdrawal"
from Lebanon he said.
Middle East conflict as a whole
Shultz reiterated that President
Reagan's September 1 1982
peace formula based on Security
Council Resolution 242 and the
Camp David agreements "was
and remains the most hopeful
workable and feasible approach
to a solution to the Palestinian
problem. There is no other ap-
proach that will get anywhere "
Shultz said.
He added "There is no
military option. No other
mediator has recovered one inch
of Arab land." an apparent
allusion to U.S. mediation of the
1979 peace treaty between Israel
and Egypt and its mediation,
through his own personal inter-
vention in May 1982 of the
Secretary ShulU
Israel-Lebanon withdrawal
Shultz also made it clear that
there is no chance for Middle
East peace without Arab accept-
ance of Israel.
"THE POLICIES of rejection
and violence have utterly failed "
he said. "There is no possibility
that groups refusing to accept
the existence of Israel will ever
achieve anything. Those who
refuse to face this reality are
helping perpetuate the explosive
flow of current events. The
absence of negotiations per-
Etuates injustice and anger. We
lieve it is time to move for-
ward. President Reagan's
commitment remains solid and
the American people will whole-
heartedly support progress
toward peace."
Shultz was equally vehement
in rejecting the idea of a U.S.
dialogue with the Palestine
Liberation Organization urged
last week by President Hosni
Mubarak of Egypt in remarks
following a luncheon meeting
with President Reagan and King
Hussein of Jordan at the White
"Conditions for any diagogue
between the PLO and the United
States have been very clearly
stated many times Shultz said.
"The PLO should recognize
Resolution 242 and should state
its recognition of the right of the
State of Israel to exist and under
those circumstances the U.S. will
conduct discussions with the
SHULTZ acknowledged that
the situation in Lebanon has
deteriorated. "In Lebanon we
face a new situation brought
about by military pressures
against the legitimate govern-
ment he said. "This Syrian-
sponsored violence against the
government has presented us
with difficult choices in vehv of
the legislation and other con-
straints under which our forces
are operating.
"We are nonetheless
proceeding to provide material
support for the Lebanese armed
forces as circumstances permit to
respond to those who attack or
threaten the safety of our per-
sonnel and to redeploy our
Marine detachment on the ships.
The longer term problems in
Lebanon can only be solved by
political means."
Shultz appeared lukewarm
toward current French efforts to
persuade the Security Council to
send a United Nations force in
Beirut to replace the multi-
national force presently con-
sisting of American French and
Italian troops.
"There is activity at the UN to
agree on a UN role in Lebanon "
Shultz said. "A UN presence
would be useful throughout
Lebanon particularly for such
purposes as protecting the Pales-
tinian refugee camps. Beyond
this a significant UN role pre-
supposes a return of stability, a
balance of forces and some
measure of political accord."
