Court Prayer Decision
Jewish Leaders Hail Law Defeat
The Supreme Court decision
by a vote of 6-3 striking
down an Alabama law
authorizing a daily one-
minute of silence for prayer
or meditation to public
schools is being hailed by
American Jewish
The American Jewish Commit-
tee, American Jewish Congress,
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, and B'nai B'rith In-
ternational say they view the
court's decision as a major victory
in the fight against efforts to
establish state-sponsored volun-
tary prayer in public schools.
The court's ruling is a strong
reaffirmation of its historic 1962
decision taken by the Warren
Court, that banned officially spon-
sored vocal prayer and Bible
reading in public schools, partly
because such activities implied
state sponsored support of a
religion or of one religion over
court ruled against the Alabama
"moment of silence" law, it sug-
gested that such statutes which
exist in varying versions in some
25 states, including New York,
New Jersey and Connecticut, may
be constitutional and not violate
the First Amendment's prohibi-
tion of an official establishment of
The Alabama law, however, was
struck down because it endorsed
religion as a "favored practice,"
the court said, adding that "the
legislative intent (of Alabama
lawmakers) to return prayer to
the public schools is, of course,
quite different from merely pro-
tecting every student's right to
engage in voluntary prayer."
Writing for the majority.
Associate Justice John Paul
Stevens also said that the
Alabama lawmakers' "endorse-
ment" of prayer as a "favored
practice" is "not consistent with
the established principle that the
government must pursue a course
of complete neutrality toward
William Rehnquist, in his dissen-
ting opinion, declared, "Nothing
in tne establishment Clause re-
quires government to be strictly
neutral between religion and ir-
religion. It would come as much to
the shock of those who drafted the
Bill of Rights as it will to a large
number of thoughtful Americans
today to learn that the Constitu-
tion prohibits the Alabama
legislature from 'endorsing'
The court decision last week
centered upon a portion in 1981
Alabama law which declared, "At
the commencement of the first
class of each day in all grades in
all public schools, the teacher in
charge of the room in which each
class is held may announce that a
period of silence not to exceed one
minute in duration shall be observ-
ed for meditation or voluntary
prayer, and during such a period
no other activities shall be engag-
ed in."

Sudan Plans Airlift Charges
LONDON (JTA) Sudan has formally begun a
judicial investigation seeking to charge those involved in
the clandestine airlift of thousands of Ethiopian Jews to
Israel, the World Jewish Congress reports. The airlift was
halted last January following its public disclosure.
WJC MONITORING SOURCES here reported that
Radio Khartoum said that "the file of Ethiopian Jews
Falashas (sic) case is judicially opened here." The broadcast
said that the ousted Vice President, Umar Muhammad al-
Tayyib, who directed the state security apparatus during
the former regime of President Gaafar al-Nimeiry, is being
charged with treason and espionage with the case.
An official source in the investigating committee said
that separate suits on political and economic corruption will
soon be filed against al-Tayyib.

Lee Tobin was installed as
resident of the Tampa Jewish
ommunity Center at the combin-
annual meeting of the Tampa
lWjsh Federation and its agen-
es. The youngest president is br-
ig many years of contact with
JCC with him. He and his
rothers, Glenn and Harris, spent
ny, many hours playing all the
irts available before he assum-
this new responsibility.
Lee's total commitment and
of the Jewish Community
>r impels him to try to create
inviting atmosphere, involve
re people, and thereby increase
mmunity awareness and
embership in this agency.
Tobin sees this as an opportuni-
for meeting the challenge by
ining in Jewish activities and
renting relationships between
jt Tampa Jewish Community
>nter, the Tampa Jewish
Federation, and the Hillel School
of Tampa. All of these organiza-
tions occupy one large campus.
According to Tobin there is not
a need at this time for a full ser-
vice center someplace else in Tam-
pa, but he would like to see a
satellite center on the north side
of town for special events and
Lee said, "I am looking forward
to an agreement with Memorial
Hospital for a Wellness Fitness
program, monitored by their
staff, to take place at the Jewish
Community Center. The Memorial
staff is already monitoring LIFE

cise) for Seniors twice a week.
Lee Tobin is a graduate of the
University of Florida and is
employed with American Interna-
tional Container, Inc. Most

Kreitzer's involvement with the
Hillel School began when their
son, Joshua, started school and
has continued and grown ever
since. She was president of the
Parent's Association and a vice
president of the school. Last year
Laura was the chairman of the
groundbreaking ceremony for the
new building on South Habana

becoming an agency of the Tampa
Jewish Federation was the
school's entrance into a larger
community life.
"Ideally the total Jewish com-
munity will share and participate
in Hillel programs," and Kreitzer
spoke of the recent lecture which
was sponsored by the Hillel School
and the Tampa Jewish Social Ser-
vice, which they would like to see
become an annual event.
Looking to the future, Kreitzer
said that priorities are continuing
to service the needs of the
children, increasing the enroll-
ment of the school, and creating a
chapel within the building so that
the students can continue to
sharpen their synagogue skills.
"A place to be for women of vi-
sion" is the slogan of the new
president of the Tampa Jewish
Federation Women's Division.
Jolene Shor was installed as presi-
dent at the combined annual
meeting of the Tampa Jewish
Federation and its agencies at the
Marriott Hotel.
Shor -has a background of
sophisticated leadership training
from the Young Women's Leader-
ship Council of the Associated
Jewish Charities and Welfare
Fund of Baltimore. She would like
to see an intensified Young
Leadership Training program
happen in Tampa which would
strengthen community participa-
tion and commitment. Shor said,
"This type of leadership develop-
ment would not only enlighten the
board but teach a greater
awareness of where Tampa fits in-
to the total Federation picture."
Shor said, "I have seen wonder-
ful leadership improvement in the
Women's Division since I have
been involved. We have taken
great strides and doubled our
campaign commitment. Women's

with Natalie Goldburg, president
of the Tampa Jewish Federation

Women's Network. This two year
old program for the working
woman has been very successful
in developing the commitment to
the community and networking of
the Jewish business woman.
Shor's vision of meeting the
challenge of the next few years
would be to develop a Young
Teenage Division and involve the

children in the Women's Plea for

Sharon At Center ofStru\
Demand Grows for Inquiry Into Lebanon War
Demands for an official in-
quiry into the Lebanon war
are mounting here following
U.S. Ambassador Samuel
Lewis' assertion that Ariel
Sharon disclosed plans for
the Israel Defense Force to
invade Lebanon to special
U.S. Middle East envoy
Philip Habib on December 4,
1981 when Sharon was
Defense Minister. The inva-
sion occurred six months
later, at the beginning of
June, 1982.
Sharon, now Minister of Com-
merce and Industry, denunced
Lewis' version of the meeting
with Habib as "a gross lie." But
the State Department, after first
refusing to comment, confirmed
that the Lewis account was
ty spokesman, Edward Djerejian,
responding to a question, declared
in a prepared statement, "We can
confirm that Ambassador Lewis
has described the United States'
position on this matter with com-
plete accuracy. We strongly ob-
ject to any suggestion to the
Djerejian did not say whether
the Administration at the time
had voiced any objections to the
Sharon plan or whether it had con-
sulted with Israeli government of-
ficials other than Sharon about
the posibility of the plan being im-
plemented. But the spokesman's
emphasis on Sharon's role at the
time as Defense Minister, ap-
peared to suggest that U.S.
diplomatic exchanges on the mat-
ter did not initially extend beyond
"I think we all have to
remember that Mr. Sharon was at
the time the Minister of Defense
of the Israeli government; to wit,
we were talking with the Israeli
government, in the person of its
Minister of Defense," Djerejian
HE ADDED that Habib, then
President Reagan's special
emissary to the Middle East, "ex-
pressed the United States govern-
ment's views fully to the govern-

Military Command HQ in the
center of Gaza was defused suc-
cessfully last week. Alert troops
noticed the suspicious car parked
near the building. It had been

ment of Israel, and we continue to
do so."
Lewis, who ended his eight-year
tour of duty as U.S. Ambassador
to Israel last week, disclosed the
Sharon-Habib conversation in an
interview broadcast on Israel
television. He said:
"Minister Sharon described in
some hypothetical detail the con-
cept for what ultimately I guess
was called 'Big Pines.' Habib was,
as I was and others of us were,
rather dumbfounded by the
audacity and the political concept
that this seemed to involve. And
Habib reacted at that point very
vehemently ... He made it ex-
traordinarily clear to Sharon that
this was an unthinkable proposi-
tion as far as the U.S. government
was concerned."
"Big Pines" was the code name
for the IDF's invasion of Lebanon,
its drive to Beirut and its goal of
destroying the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization in Lebanon,
driving out or forcing the Syrian
army to pull out of Lebanon and
setting up in Beirut a Lebanese
Christian government friendly to

Sharon and he has been accused in
fact of withholding details of the
operation and its ultimate objec-
tives from other Cabinet ministers
at the time. His conversation with
Habib was reported in detail by
Zeev Schiff, military editor of
Hoaretz, and Ehud Yaan, Arab
affairs correspondent for Israel
television in their book, "Israel s
Lebanon War." ,
Ambassador Lewis was the first
American diplomat to confirm
that Sharon had in fact outlined
his plans to Habib long before the
invasion. According to the
writers, Sharon maintained that
the Americans would have to
make peace with the idea that
nothing could stop Israel from
carrying out its aims in Lebanon
and that the U.S. would become
reconciled to it and reap its own
benefits from the Israeli action.
Sharon's immediate reaction to
Lewis' disclosure was an angry at-
tack on the outgoing American en-
voy whom he held responsible,
along with Habib and Habib's
aide, Morris Draper, for the
ultimate failure of Israeli ambi-
tions and American policy in
Achronot has quoted Sharon as
saying: "It's too bad that in his
final appearance, the American
Ambassador didn't feel the need
to tell the truth and express
remorse over the fact that he,
together with Philip Habib and
Draper here and (former Assis-
tant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs
Nicholas) Veliotes in Washington,
were the cornerstones of the
failure in Lebanon."
Sharon added, according to the
newspaper, "High-ranking
figures have already expressed
themselves concerning the

Hillel School Graduation
On Wednesday evening, June
12 at the Jewish Community
Center, the Hillel School of Tam-
pa graduated its first class since
moving into new facilities at 501
S. Habana last August. This
year's graduates were fortunate
to be able to conclude their
elementary school education in
Hillel's beautiful new home.
Graduating this year were the
following eighth grade students:
Jeffrey Barlis, Marc Dickman,
Shoshanna Korn, Alia Libman,
Sheri Smargon and Stephen
Graduation exercises included
many special awards and presen-
tations. The highlight of the pro-
gram was the presentation by the
graduates themselves. It focused
on the difficult subject of what it
means to be a Jew by depicting re-
cent efforts by world Jewry to
airlift the entire Ethiopian Jewish
community to Israel. The
graduates' presentation, called
"Shared Responsibility Shared
Pride," was written by Mrs.
Rochelle Lewis, Jewish studies
faculty member at Hillel.
Several important distinctions
and awards were announced at
the graduation exercises, in-
cluding the following:

achievement given to a 7th grade
student) Jonnie Kolodner;

where 26 Israelis were gunned
down, and many other murderers.
Prisoner exchanges in the past
were usually marked by joyous
outbursts. But this exchange trig-
gered an unprecedented barrage
of criticism, renewed appeals for
capital punishment, and embroil-
ed the coalition government in a
controversy over amnesty for a
convicted ring of Jewish
While the Israeli Government
was apparently united on the ex-
change despite the high cost en-
tailed, the reaction of the media,
public opinion leaders, and most
Israelis canvassed was decisively
critical of the deal. Many voiced
their view that Israel gave too
much to Ahmed Jabril's popular
front and, had the government
been more patient, could have
struck a better deal. Of particualr
concern was the release of hun-
dreds of Palestinians to the West
Bank and Gaza.
Several commentators felt the
security risks did not justify the
exchange and would undermine
Israel's anti-terror effort. "After
the release of hundreds of
murderers who are allowed to re-
main among us, our leaders have
lost their moral right to order
soldiers to risk their lives in stor-
ming objectives," said Ze'ev Shiff,
the respected military correspon-
dent of Ha'Aretz, referring to the
Entebbe rescue and other IDF
counter-terror assaults. Terming
the agreement "humiliating and
frustrating," Shiff claimed the ex-
change is "another layer in
Israel's psychological enfeeble-
ment which began with the war in
Yediot Ahronot, the country's
largest daily newspaper, chided
the Israeli POWs families for
their incessant pressure for an ex-
change. Calling the release date
"a holiday for the parents and the
POWs, but a trying one for their
country," the paper criticized the
families for "preferring to en-
danger Israel's security rather
than wait another year or two for
their loved ones."
The government's decision, on
the other hand, won some backing
for giving preeminence to the
ethical considerations involved.
"Sensitivity to human life is what
differentiates Israel from its
neighbors," opined Hatzofeh, the
religious party daily. "This extra
sensitivity sometimes weakens
Israel's bargaining position .
but stems from greatness," said
its editors.
Several security experts felt the
heavy price paid by Israel in the
exchange compromised the state
in its stand against international
terror. "Never again will Israel be
able .to condemn other countries
for submitting to blackmail," said
General (res.) Shlomo Gazit,
former IDF chief of military in-
telligence. "We can no longer say
Israel is in the forefront of
fighting terror," he added.
Some officials in the defense
establishment believe that the ex-
change will fuel further terror at-
tacks against Israel. "Now, an
Arab terrorist setting out on a
killing spree knows if he is cap-
tured alive he will only sit in jail
for a few years, until a prisoner
swap is concluded," said a veteran
counter-terrorist operator.
The controversial exchange
gave rise to demands for the death
penalty for terrorist killers. "Ex-
ecutions are preferable to the kill-
ing of prisoners by our own
soldiers or the release of
murderers out of surrender," said
Ze'ev Shiff. Others, however,
disagree on the deterrent value of
capital punishment, noting the
spate of suicide terrorist attacks
in Lebanon recently.
The release of so many
dangerous terrorists by Israel
generated pressure, and in-
evitably created a more favorable
political climate for the pardoning
of the Jewish terror conspirators.
With the "Jewish underground"
trials wrapping up soon, the Gush
Emmunim settlers' lobby and
other nationalists have mounted a
campaign for the pardon of those
Jews already convicted of ter-
rorism against Arabs and release
of those still facing proceedings.
Their argument "Why should
Jews goaded into counter-terror
sit in jail while the worst
murderers are set free?" has
gained considerable support, par-
ticularly in Likud circles.
Several Likud officials, among
them party leaders Yitzhak
Shamir and Ariel Sharon, have
called for the release of the Jewish
underground members.
Significantly, they did not receive
the backing of former Prime
Minister Begin who said that the
prisoners' exchange and Jewish
underground issues ought not be
linked. Peres was able to quell a
brewing coalition crisis by
threatening to resign over the
clemency issue.
Despite the criticism in Israel
over the release of the Arab ter-
rorists, there was no widespread
support for pardoning the Jewish
underground. "It is one thing to
give in to blackmail to save inno-
cent lives. It is quite another to
exonerate Israeli citizens who
acted as vigilantes," said a
Jerusalem educator.
Echoing this view, the
Jerusalem Post editorialized that
"the price of three Israeli soldiers
has been painfully high, but it
should not now be used as an ex-
cuse to rip up Israel's legal
Some people fear that the
release of the terrorists will also
fuel Kahanism and anti-Arab feel-
ings in Israel. "The image of
Israel as being 'soft on terror' is
just the kind of issue that can win
Kahane new followers," said one
former Likud official.
Has Israel gone soft on terror?
Surely in its intentions it has not,
but what the implications will be
only time will tell. "Each issue
must be considered on its own
merits," said Rabin, who as Prime
Minister in 1976 gave the order
for the Entebbe rescue. Israel's
frustration and despair over the
high cost of freedom for its cap-
tured soldiers should not be con-
fused for lack of resolve to stop
terrorism. This is an attitude
Israel can ill afford. The debate
over the hostage exchange will
soon come to an end. The terrorist
threat against Israel and its in-
habitants, unfortunately will not.

Tax Simplification or
Dear Congressman Gibbons:
I have only one car which I have
to use for both business and per-
sonal purposes. Like many other
small businessmen, I have a great
deal of records to keep straight for
my business. Often I find myself
working 15 hours a day just trying
to keep up with the paperwork.
Now I understand that the IRS
wants us to start keeping detailed
records of how we use our cars. I
don't mind paying my fair share
of taxes, but why not be
straightforward about it. It is
enough that the IRS is taking my
money without taxing my time. So
much for tax simplification!
Dear I.R.H.:
I don't blame you for being
upset about the recordkeeping re-
quirements for the mixed use of
vehicles for business and personal
use. You will be pleased to know
that, as your representative, I op-
posed passing these requirements.
The new rules were the result of
the Deficit Reduction Act of 1984.
This legislation was designed to
help reduce the Federal deficit by
closing tax loopholes and beefing
up compliance with tax laws. The
law mandated that as of January
1, 1985, taxpayers who claimed
tax breaks for their businesses
would have to keep detailed
"contemporaneous" logs of their
business and personal use of their
automobiles and other equipment.
Small business owners and
farmers complained that these
new rules would require multiple
entries in a log each day. Others
would also have been affected by
the new rules. Large businesses,
public utilities, public safety, and
law enforcement agencies would
all be required to keep records
even when their employees are
"on call" for emergency

assignments that require them to
take official vehicles home.
Auto recordkeeping re-
quirements are arduous to comply
with. I agree with you that it is un-
fair to expect taxpayers to take on
added paperwork at a time when
we are trying to simplify the tax
system. The current laws are too
numerous and difficult to unders-
tand for most people. In answer to
the public outcry opposing these
burdensome requirements the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee agreed to repeal them. The
Senate Finance Committee pass-
ed a similar repeal bill, but the dif-
ferences had to be resolved in a
House-Senate conference in which
I participated as a House con-
feree. Both bodies of Congress
agreed to the conference report
repealing the auto recordkeeping
rules and the President signed it
into law on May 24, 1985.
To cover some of the expected
loss of revenue from repealing
these requirements, new legisla-
tion will limit tax breaks for
business use of so-called luxury
cars. The new law lowers the max-
imum investment tax credit allow-
ed for a business car from $1000
to $675, and lowers the maximum
depreciation on the car in the first
year from $4,000 to $3,200 and
from $6,000 to $4,800 in each
subsequent year. These limits
were indexed to increase with in-
flation beginning in 1989. You
should know that the provision ap-
plicable to cars that cost more
than $11,250 affects autos placed
in service after April 2, 1985.
I am all for tax reform, but any
proposals should be scrutinized
from the standpoint of their im-
pact on American industry's abili-
ty to be competitive both in the
domestic and international
