Dear Friends,
Passover. Seder. Family.
These are some of the strongest
memories that move us as Jews.
Memories "connect use to parents,
family, friends, community, to
the warmth and caring that begin
in the home and reach out around
the world.
Memories bind us to the chain
of Jewish generations since the
time of Abraham, and genera-
tions that carried the commit-
ment to live as Jews and to show
the world a model of life. These
memories are our Jewish con-
What will ensure the memories
of the future? We are living in one
of the greatest, freest societies of
all time. We even can choose the
memories we want for ourselves
and our children. As an organized
Jewish community our programs
offer vital experiences, so
memorable that we can choose to
live richer lives as Jews, choose
to build an even stronger com-
munity that, in turn, nurtures
Jewish identity.
As we sit down to share our
Passover Seder with family and
friends, let us rededicate our-
selves to give the kind of support
to our community that will build
a stronger Jewish connection.
Help us to build that vital link to
world Jewry where no longer will
Jews continue to be harassed,
threatened and imprisoned. Join
with us and help us to build a
better Jewish world together.
With sincerest best wishes
during this Passover season.

Sharon Wins Stunning
Upset at Herut
Central Committee Vote
JERUSALEM (JTA) Former Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon won a stunning upset here when the Herut
Central Committee gave him 41 percent of the vote in his
bid to replace Premier Yitzhak Shamir in the top spot on
the Likud election list.
Shamir, who won 59 percent of the vote, a very poor
showing for an incumbent Prime Minister and party
leader, will head the Likud list in the July 23 elections.
But Sharon is now assured of a powerful position at the
top level of Likud and a senior Cabinet post should Likud
head the next government.
AFTER THE vote, both men were warmly welcomed
into the hall. Sharon delivered a speech praising Herat's
democratic process and seemed conciliatory toward
Shamir. He was applauded when he called for "a
unanimous open vote" for Shamir as the next Premier, to
affirm the results of the secret balloting.

Then, Israeli soldiers shot out the

including the driver, escaped.
Soon after the hijacking, the
Arabs released two pregnant
women from the group of 36
passengers, one of whom died in
the IDF counter attack.
The attack came ten days after
three terrorists opened fire on a
Jerusalem street, during which
48 persons were wounded.
In Damascus, Syria, the
Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine, headed by the
radical PLO leader, George
Habash, claimed responsibility
for the attack. It was imple-
mented by the Martyr Guevara
Group of Gaza, which takes its
name from Guevara of Gaza; the
nom de guerre of a PFLP member
killed some ten years ago, who in
turn was inspired by Ernesto Che
Guevara, the Cuban Communist
leader killed in Latin America in
the 1960a.

The week in which we celebrate
the Festival of matzohs. the
Festival of Our Freedom, is
surely the right time to reflect
more deeply on the various
iaspects of Pesach (Passover).
' Beginning with the central point.
that the exodus from Egypt, in
essence the redemption from the
exile in Egypt, is connected with
the redemption from the present
exile, and as it is written: "As in
the days of your going out from
the land of Egypt I will show you
wonder" meaning that G-d
assures the Jewish people that
just as it was in the days of the
Exodus from Egypt, so will he
show wonders at the last redemp-
tion, the true and complete
redemption through Moshiach
The question has been asked.
Why does it say "In the days of
the Exodus." in the plural, being
that the Exodus from Egypt took
place in one day.
One of the explanations is that
as from the day on which the
Jewish people came out of Egypt,
out of the house of bondage, they
were taken out forever of the
category of slavery, transposed
into a new category, that of free
However, the transition from
slavery to freedom is not a
onetime happening, but a conti-
nuous process. It demands
frequent and constant reflection
so as to experience once again, in
a personal way. the coming out
from slavery into freedom, and to
make the proper conclusions
therefrom, conclusions that have
to be expressed not only in
thought and in words, but espe-
cially in a deep penetrating
feeling which permeates the
whole being, down to actions, to a
corresponding conduct in all
details and aspects of the every-
day life.
Hence, although the Exodus
from Egypt 01 each and every
.lew. together with their posses-
sions, etc. took place in one
day. the true liberation, the spiri-
tual liberation, including also
from all constraints and limita-
tions, is something that is ac-
complished through daily reflec-
tion and remembrance, as it is
written. "In every generation,
and in even.- day. a Jew should
consider himself as though he
personally came out this day
from Egypt."
This is in keeping with the
obligation to remember and
mention the going out of Egypt
every day. and in a manner in
which a remembrance in Torah
has to be observed, namely.
"Remembered and done, as has
often been emphasized.
Although we live in a mat-
erialistic world, in the midst of a
highly competitive society,
facing a desperate struggle for
economic survival, how can you
escape subservience to the idol-
atry of the land be it the
dollar, or the fear to be "dif-

Passover Message
P"lent HUC-JIR
Dr Alfred Gottachalk
President of Hebrew Unioi
Co lege-Jewiah Institute ol
Religion, issued the following
Passover statement.
For Jews, the ever present
theme of peace and freedom is
particularly poignant during the
Passover holiday as we remember
and retell through the Haggadah
(Passover story) our ancestors
deliverance from Egyptian
bondage. The Haggadah also
reminds us to reach out to those
that are in need and "let all who
are hungry come and eat
Hunger and unemployment
threaten more and more indi-
viduals each passing day. For
those of us who are fortunate
enough to live without depriva-
tion, helplessness and hopeless-
ness we have an obligation to
respond to these needs.
As Jews who value the real
meaning of freedom, we cannot
be truly free until we work to
alleviate the plight of others.
Observing Passover is an act of
faith and affirmation in a just
and equitable today and ex-
presses the hope of an even
stronger tomorrow.
Czech Jews To Get
Their Own Rabbi
This summer, for the first
time since World War II,
the Jewish community in
Czechoslovakia is going to
have its own rabbi. "This is
a major cause for celebra-
tion for us," Dr. Desider
Galsky. president of the
Council of Jewish Commu-
nities in Czechoslovakia,
told a group of Jewish lead-
ers, members of the World
Jewish Congress-American
Section, at a meeting here.
He said that a young Czecho-
slovakian Jew will be ordained as
a rabbi on June 10 at the Jewish
Seminary in Budapest, Hungary.
"We are going to open a Talmud
Torah and revive Jewish life,"
Galsky said.
There were about 350,000 Jews
in Czechoslovakia before the war,
he pointed out As a result of the
Holocaust there are less than
20.000 today, mostly elderly
Jews who survived the Holo
most of the Jews in Czechoslova-
kia today lead "good, comfor-
table lives." He said that what
they need most of all is to be re-
lieved of the feeling of isolation
from other Jewish communities
in the world. "We are not poor,
helpless Jews," he said. "For us.
the most important thing is to
know that we are not isolated."
He welcomed visits by Ameri-
can Jewish individuals and
groups to Czechoslovakia. He
said that the Jewish community
in Czechoslovakia also has
contacts with Israel despite the
absence of diplomatic relations,
since the Six-Day War, between
Jerusalem and Prague. "We
receive information and newspa-
per from Israel," Galsky said.
He stated that Jews in Czecho-
slovakia "are not discriminated
against any more than any other
minority group in the country."
He said that the problem of anti-
Semitism is marginal. "But if
there is any anti-Semitic attack
against us. we respond to it
GALSKY SAID that not long
ago a vicious anti-Semitic article
appeared in the weekly, Tribuna.
accusing the "Zionists" of being
responsible for the deaths of Jews
in the Holocaust. "We sharply
protested to the editor of the
paper and demanded a retrac-
tion," he said, adding that indeed
recently, in the same column in
the paper, there were a few ar-
ticles favorable to the Jews.
Galsky said, in response to a
question, that the Jews, as any
other citizen in Czechoslovakia,
are not allowed to emigrate. He
noted, however, that two months
ago a Jew was allowed to leave
for Israel after seeking an exit
visa for more than five years.
"This is the one and only dissid-
ent we had." he said. Galsky and
Arthur Radvansky. the secre-
tary-general of the organized
Jewish community in Czechoslo-
vakia, were in the United States
as representatives of the Czecho-
slovakian government for the
opening in the U.S. of the
"Precious Legacy" exhibition of
Judaica and Jewish life from the
State Museum in Prague The
meeting with the World Jewish
Congress leaders took place at
the Park East Synagogue, whose
spiritual leader is Rabbi Arthur
Schneier, chairman of the WJC-
American Section.
Israeli soldier was slightly
wounded by a hand grenade
thrown at his patrol in Nabatiya
in south Lebanon. Five local resi-
dents were hurt by the blast.
Security sources are blaming
ayria for the recent increase in
attacks on Israel Defense Force
personnel in Lebanon. According
to the sources, there were at least
70 attacks or attempted attacks
dunng the past month which
resulted in four Israeli soldiers
dead and 32 wounded. There have
been 16 attacks since the begin-
ning of April.
The sources say this is due to
Syria s failure to restrain terror-
ists operating from areas of
Lebanon it controls.
