lErika Boyd, the volunteer

Boyd also told the JTA that
the purpored tax-payers group
had collected 7,000 signatures to
put Proposition E on the June
ballot, adding that only 5,000
signatures were required. She
said there is another initiative on
the ballot calling for a nuclear
that "the people of the City of
Berkeley call on the United
States government to reduce its
yearly aid to Israel by an amount
equal to what it determines to be
the most accurate approximation
of what Israel spends annually on
its settlements in the occupied
territories of the West Bank,
Gaza Strip and Golan Heights."
In response to the placement of
the initiative on the June ballot, a
group of Berkeley residents
organized "The Coalition for
Middle East Peace and Justice,"
with headquarters across from
City Hall. Among leaders of the
coalition are two Berkeley City
Councilmen, James Sweeney and
John Denton. Boyd stressed to
the JTA that the coalition,
though it has three rabbis among
its members, is not a Jewish-
sponsored organization.

Council members have an-

Your Community Capital
Gift $'s At Work
Wednesday, May 9, was a very
exciting day in the history of the
Tampa Jewish community. It
probably went unnoticed by the
majority of the population but it
is certainly noteworthy. The first
section (pictured above) of the
soon to be Hillel School Building
was delivered by truck to the site
of the Jewish Community Center.
Other pre-fabricated units are
soon to follow and the Hillel
School of Tampa will be occupy-
ing their new facility in time for
the 1984-85 school year.
The Jewish Community Center
has also made excellent use of the
Capital Campaign dollars. A new
roof (an absolute necessity) has
been installed. Other improve-
ments include refinished bath-
rooms and locker rooms, painting
of hallways, classrooms and the
gymnasium, landscaping, new
cool deck around the swimming
pool, additional chaise lounges,
and a modern, up-to-date tele-
phone system. Other renovations
are in the planning stages as
more dollars become available.
Both the Jewish Community
Center and the Hillel School of
Tampa will need additional
dollars to complete the work that
has been started. There are still
many individuals in the commu-
nity who have not participated in
the Capital Gifts Campaign.
Your help is needed now to
complete the effort to raise
$400,000. Contact the Tampa
Jewish Federation. 875-1618, to

Veronica Fucson have remained
silent on the issue. Prof. Edward
Epstein, chairman of "No on E,"
is Jewish. Also opposing the ini-
tiative are members of the All
Berkeley Coalition, Berkeley's
Citizen Action and Berkeley
Democratic Club.
opposing the measure, Boyd said,
are John George, chairman of the
Alameda County Board of Super-
visors; Ira Heyman, University
of California Chancellor; the Rev.
Michael Blecker, president of the
Graduate Theological Union in
Berkeley; and the three rabbis
Martin Ballanoff of the Univer-
sity of California Berkeley Hillel
Foundation; Avi Levine and
Joseph Leibowitz.
Sweeney said he "questions
the motives" of the initiative
sponsors because it "does not
once mention face-to-face nego-
tiations, does not mention the
notion of justice."
Denton, posing the question of
the purpose of the initiative, said
it was "a contrived measure" to
"stigmatize Israel and embarrass
American Jews."
Boyd, asked just what action
the initiative required, if
approved by the voters, said it
mandates Mayor Newport to
send a letter to President Reagan
informing him of the action.
She also was asked whether
there was any view among coali-
tion backers that approval of the
proposition could not in any way
effect United States policy in the
Middle East. She said there was
substantial opinion to that effect
and that it was generally
regarded as a propaganda device,
as Denton had labeled it.
Ceausescu Says He'll
Monitor Anti-Semitism
President Nicolai
Ceausescu of Rumania has
promised Chief Rabbi
Moses Rosen that he will
personally see to it that
"such things do not happen
again." Ceausescu, who
met with Rosen for nearly
one hour last week, was
referring to the publication
of virulently anti-Semitic
articles in a number of
Communist Party papers
and in a book of poetry.
Rosen, who arrived in Paris on
his way to Casablanca where he
was guest of the Moroccan
Jewish community and part-
icipated in the First National
Conference of Moroccan Jewish
Communities May 13 and 14, told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that Ceausescu told him that as
soon as he was informed of the
anti-Semitic nature of some of the
works in a book of poetry
published a few months ago, he
personally ordered it seized and
withdrawn from circulation.
ROSEN SAID the President
also told him that the author,
Corneliu Valerian Tudor, was
reprimanded "within the (Com-
munist) Party framework as was
the editor in charge of the book's
publication." The Chief Rabbi
said his meeting with Ceausescu

Lag B'Omer: Thoughts of 'Yiddisha'Mardi Gras
With the arrival of Lag
B'Omer, my mind inevit-
ably busies itself with the
bittersweet thoughts of my
youth. At my Jewish Day
School, this minor holiday
was awaited with all the
fear and trembling
normally reserved for the
Days of Awe.
Lag B'Omer was our "field
day." We were fearful rain would
spoil our park outing, and
trembled at the prospect of not
winning even one of the many
athletic contests. We busied our-
selves with games, played with
bows and arrows, ate hot-dogs
prepared on an open fire. Though
hardly ever paying attention to
the tacher's perfunctory "signi-
ficance of Lag B'Omer" talk, our
youthful imaginations were
somehow always kindled by tales
of huge bonfires, dancing and
singing and free haircuts given
on some faraway hill in the
remote, exotic sounding Galilee.
THE FIFTY days between the
Exodus from Egypt and the
Giving of the Torah, between the
ripening of barley and the
harvesting of wheat, between
Pesach and Shavuot are, in
Judaism, commemorated by the
"counting of the Omer." Due to a
number of tragic events which
befell the Jewish people at this
season, this period is tradi-
tionally one of mourning.
Weddings are forbidden, haircuts
and shaving prohibited, and
festive celebrations are severely
On the thirty-third day of the
Omer, however, nearly every-
thing goes. Music is played, bride
and groom are united, and it is
customary, within the ultra-
Orthodox community, to give a
three year old boy his first
haircut. Although shrouded in
mystery, a number of explana-
tions exist as to the festive
origins of this one-day's joyous
Some commentators maintain
that it was on this day, over 1,800
years ago, that the forces of Bar
Kochba, rebelling against a
tyrannical Roman regime,
pushed back Hadrian's oppres-
sive forces, fortified Jewish
towns and, for but a fleeting
moment recaptured Jerusalem.
Others, including the Talmud,
attribute Lag B'Omer's festive
nature to the belief that on this
day there was a brief cessation of
a devastating plague which
decimated the ranks of Rabbi
Akiva's disciples.
IN ISRAEL, however, Lag
B'Omer celebrations center

around the life and times of yet
another great Mishnaic person-
ality: Rabbi Simeon bar Yohai.
Tradition maintains that on Lag
B'Omer Rav Simeon, a central
figure in mystical Jewish liter-
ature, died. Though not custom-
ary to celebrate on the anni-
versary of a tzadik's death,
legend has it that a great light
and joy surrounded Rav
Simeon's deathbed because on
this day he revealed to his
disciples the hidden and mystical
meaning of the Torah.
The tomb of Rav Simeon,
situated on Mt. Meron, has been
the focal point of Lag B'Omer

pilgrimages since the late u
Century. With increasing joy
fervor, the tradition of a |Lu

According to Fonda, Nudel told
her that the visit made her "safe"
and will probably prevent the
Soviet authorities from harassing
Fonda vowed to continue her
activity on behalf of Soviet Jewry
in general and Nudel in
particular. She stated: "those of

Soviet Union, abuses which are
unworthy of a powerful nation. I

Jews who wish to emigrate, and
for a humanitarian gesture

has no intention of attacking Syria. He was responding to
Syrian Defense Minister Tlas' claim, in a broadcast
speech, that Israel and the U.S. were preparing to attack
his country.
Tlas said Syria would repel such an attack with the
aid of the Soviet Union and other Arab states. Arens
suggested that Syrian war talk was intended to
camouflage internal tensions over a possible successor to
President Hafez Assad who is believed to be ill. He
warned, however, that the need to divert attention from
an internal power struggle might tempt the Syrians to
war like adventures.

Rabbi Joan Glazer To
Join Schaarai Zedek
When Rabbi Joan Glazer
Farber joins Congregation
Schaarai Zedek as assistant
rabbi, it will be a first in many
ways. There have been no other
assistant rabbis in the area.
Rabbi Frank Sundheim joined
Congregation Schaarai Zedek as
Associate Rabbi to Rabbi David
L. Zielonka, the difference being
that Rabbi Sundheim was the
designated successor to Rabbi
Zielonka. While she is the first
woman to be a permanent rabbi
in the Tampa Bay area. Congre-
gation Schaarai Zedek had Rabbi
Susan Berman serve as summer
rabbi, two years ago during
Rabbi Sundheim's sabbatical.
Rabbi Joan Glazer Farber, who
will join the staff of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek in July, is a
native of Baltimore, Md., and is a
confirmand of Baltimore Hebrew
Congregation. Her family's in-
volvement in Reform Judaism
has been deep and of long
standing. As a teenager, Rabbi
Farber was Vice President of the
Baltimore Hebrew Congregation
Youth Group and was the chap-
lain of the Middle Atlantic
Federation of Temple Youth
Rabbi Farber is a graduate of
the University of Pittsburgh and
will be ordained on May 27 by the
New York School of Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Institute of
Religion. In addition to her
rabbinical ordination, she will
simultaneously receive a MA in
Secondary Education from New
York University. During Rabbi
Farber's years in college and
rabbinical school, she has con-
tinued her interest in youth and
education. She has taught in reli-
gious schools and has been a
Program Coordinator for youth
programs in various commu-
nities. She has also served on the
faculty of UAHC, Camp Harlam,
and was coordinator of the
Learning Center at the NFTY
National Kutz Camp in Warwick,
She has served student pulpits
in Canton, N.Y.; Staunton, Va.;
and presently in New Castle, Pa.
One of her particular interests
has been in the field of counsell-
ing. She has been a participant in
several courses in bereavement
counselling sponsored by the
New York Board of Rabbis, and
presently is a chaplain at the
Memorial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center in New York City.
During her years in the New
York School, she has won several
honors for academic excellence
and has recently submitted her
thesis on the "ubject of intermar-
riage as reflected in some of the
rabbinical interpretations of the
Biblical Book of Ruth.
Rabbi Farber is married to An-
drew Farber who is a senior con-
sultant in the New York firm of
Peat, Marwick, Mitchell and
Co.'s Information Systems
Services group. He specializes in
computer security.

But there was divergence over

Jews could be strengthened by
adhering to the charter of the Fez
conference of the Arab League in
October, 1982, shortly after Pres-

Bonn Calls on EEC For
New Mideast Initiative
BONN (JTA) The Bonn government has called
for a new Middle East initiative by the European
Economic Community (EEC). According to Deputy
Foreign Minister Juergen Moellemann, such a move is Jew and Arab h*w m_m
necessary to promote peace in the 8gion and to make the example ^^^dp^gf
voice of Europe heard and respected there.
Moellemann's remarks reflected a major departure
from the past position of Chancellor Helmut Kohl's
government. Kohl himself had declared, on taking office
in October, 1982, that Europe should coordinate its ac-
tions in the Middle East with the United States and not
embark on independent initiatives.
KOHL'S RULING Christian Democratic Party
(CDU) is also on record as having rejected the EEC's
June, 1980 Venice declaration on the Middle East which
called for, among other things, the Palestine Liberation
Organization to be associated with the peace process in
the region. Kohl, a member of the Bundestag at the time,
led the opposition in debate over the Venice declaration.
Now, according to Moellemann, a speedy resumption
of the European-Arab dialogue is called for. So far, the
dialogue has been a failure because of rivalries in the Arab
world and because the Arabs demand that it concentrate
on political rather than economic issues.

He told the JTA at the time that
he found most of Rumania's
29,000 Jews scared, some
actually panicky, about the anti-
, Semitic diatribes in the official
press and the book of poetry.
The book of poetry, which
appeared last December and was
widely distributed, contained
material reminiscent of the worst
| war-time anti-Semitic literature.
The material in the book said
that Jews were "cursed" for
being "thieves and corrupters,
people with no conscience and no
sense of loyalty, who have no
patriotic links whatsoever to
their country and only think of
how to exploit it."

Semitic campaign in March,
several prominent Rumanian
leaders, including First Deputy
Prime Minister Ion Dinca, Reli-
gious Affairs Minister Ion
Roseanu, and the Secretary of the
Communist Party's Central
Committee, Petru Erale, met
with Rosen to assure him that the
publication of Valerian Tudor's
book had been an "accident"
which will not occur again.
Rosen, who at one time
thought of resigning from the
Rumanian National Assembly in
which he has been a member for
the last 27 years, had called
during all his meetings with the
Rumanian officials for the
authorities to launch public legal
proceedings against those
charged with anti-Semitic insults
and incitement to racial hatred-

"We could hope that at somp
point the negotiations are joined
by King Hussein of Jordan."
The WJC leader stressed that
"before such renewed sessions
take place, it would be most
helpful if relations between
Egypt and Israel were restored to
a condition that is more in
keeping with the peace treaty."
He said it was-"disturbing" that

The issue of Jerusalem could
prove a stumbling block to any
Arab-Israeli dialogue at this time
and to a subsequent visit to
Israel by Hassan. The Moroccan
ruler heads the Al Quds commu-
nity (Al Quds is the Arab name
for Jerusalem), an organization
fiercely determined to preserve
the Arab status of the city Israel
declares as its capital.
Moroccan officials reportedly
warned the Israeli delegation
that Israel would face new
problems if it persisted in urging
other countries to transfer their
embassies to Jerusalem.
BRONFMAN, in his speech,
hailed Hassan as a moderate and
a "humanitarian influence." He
observed that "Here in Morocco,
Green Party Expels Founding
Member Abromeit as Nazi
BONN (JTA) The Green Party has expelled
one of its founding members, Tristan Abromeit, on
grounds that he supports Nazi ideas. He is the fourth
party official forced to resign or to leave high posts
because of alleged Nazi sympathies.
THE GREEN PARTY, based in Lower Saxony, is a
coalition of pacifists and ecologists and a member of the
opposition in the Bundestag. Abromeit, 50, has found
himself increasingly out of tune, with the party's guiding
principles in recent years.
The Green secretary announced that he would not be
allowed to retain his membership card. Abromeit recently
published unflattering comparisons between the Greens
and the Nazi Party in the 1930s.

23 Jewish Cadets to be Commissioned As Officers
NEW YORK, N.Y. Twenty-
three Jewish cadets, including
two women, are among this
spring's graduates from five U.S.
service academies. The 23 are
being commissioned as officers,
according to Rabbi Barry H.
Greene, of Short Hills, N.J.,
chairman of the JWB Commis-
sion on Jewish Chaplaincy.
JWB representatives will
present complimentary copies of
the new Jewish Publication
Society translation of The Torah
(The Five Books of Moses) to the
Jewish officers at the bacca-
laureate services.
The presentation of Jewish
books to the cadets is part of the
intensified year-round program of
outreach and service provided the
Jewish personnel at the
academies by the JWB
Chaplaincy Commission and local
Jewish communal leaders.
"The Jewish consciousness of
the cadets has been raised
considerably by the work of
JWB, the Jewish chaplains, and
Jewish lay leaders," Greene said.
"By doing this we heighten
their receptivity to the role of
Jewish lay leadership," he added.
"The cadets will not only be in
positions of Jewish leadership
within the armed forces. They are
also potential leaders for posi-
tions in their civilian commu-
nities after they leave the
