He said that the Council was ar-
rogating unto itself the role of the
Knesset determining what was
legal and what was illegal. Peres
added that the statement had also
sought to "sow an atmosphere of
fear instead of balanced debate."
The Premier also denounced the
settlers' council statement as a
perversion of the government's
position by attributing to govern-
ment leaders baseless statements.
Peres said he was confident that
many Jews in Judaea and Samaria
would reject the Council's tone
and tenor as would most citizens
of Israel.
General Yitzhak Zamir is review-
ing the article in Aleph Yod to
determine if there are grounds to
sue the publication for having in-
cited the settlers to rebellion.
Zamir is acting on a request by
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
Sources at the Defense Ministry
said that if Zamir ruled that there
was a violation of the law, the
publication will be ordered closed
and the editor will be sued.
Rabin was reported to be ex-
tremely angry with the article,
which called for civil disobedience
and resistance, even if it meant
fighting with Israel Defense
Force soldiers, in case a peace set-
tlement would require a territorial
compromise in the West Bank.
There was also widespread
anger in government circles
because the settler's council state-
ment termed anyone ceding ter-
ritory a "traitor" to Israel and
said that any leader who cedes
soveriegn territory should be
treated the way French leader
Gen. Charles de Gaulle treated
Marshall Henri Petain, who had
collaborated with Nazi Germany.

Cardinal O'Connor Asked To Press
Pope on Recognition of Israel
John Cardinal O'Connor,
the spiritual head of two
million Catholics in the Ar-
chdiocese of New York, was
urged here to press the
Vatican toward the
establishment of diplomatic
recognition of the State of
The dramatic appeal, believed
to be the first direct public request
to the Cardinal on the issue from a
prominent Jewish leader, was
made by Edgar Bronfman, pr-
esident of the World Jewish Con-
gress, at a dinner presenting
O'Connor with the first Cardinal
Bea Interfaith Award of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. Some 700 guests attended
the event.
"PLease convey to Rome the
importance to Jews everywhere
for normalizing relations between
the Vatican and Israel whichis the
home for so much of Jewish
culture and so many of the world's
Jews so that all of us Jews
and Catholics alike may work
together for a better world,"
Bronfman declared:------
THE CARDINAL, after receiv-
ing the award, did not refer to
Bronfman's appeal in addressing
the guests at the Marriott Mar-
quis Hotel. However, he told
reporters later that the decision
on diplomatic recognition of Israel
is solely that of the Vatican.
While the Cardinal told
reporters he "had no hesitation at

the Pope, he added: "It would be
presumptuous of me to think that
I could do more than that, to ex-
press the feelings of the Jewish
community that I meet here in
New York. And I have great trust
for the understanding of the ques-
tion on the part of the Holy See."
The Vatican has been urged on
numerous occasions by Jewish
groups and even members of Con-
gress to extend formal diplomatic
recognition to Israel. Last year,
26 Jewish and Roman Catholic
members of the House Represen-
tatives issued a letter urging that
Pope John Paul II recognize Is-

Despite Rumors
Only 124 Jews Came West
From Soviet Union in October
"Despite rumors of an accelerated
rate of emigration from the
USSR, only 124 Jews from the
Soviet Union arrived in the West
during October," according to
Jerry Goodman, executive direc-
tor of the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ). The data,
compiled by the NCSJ Research
Bureau, reflects the norm
established in 1984. when 896
Jews left the Soviet Union.
According to the NCSJ. "there
is no evidence, based on perfor-
mance, of any changes in Soviet
practices, despite rumors and
statements made by Secretary
General Mikhail Gorbachev in
Paris last month." The organiza-
tion noted that only two weeks
ago Leonid Volvovsky of Gorky
was sentenced to three years in a
labor camp, for circulating
material allegedly "defaming the
Soviet State."
Volvovsky is one of the prime
advocates of Hebrew teaching and
study, a cause which is assumed to
be his "real crime." In the last
year, one Jewish activist per
month was sentenced to prison or
labor camp. Virtually all of them
were from among the
unregistered Hebrew teachers,
the NCSJ re[M.rted.
While there is a great deal of
speculation, on the eve of the sum-
mit meeting between President
Reagan and Gorbachev, about the
movement of Jews from the
Soviet Union, "this cannot be
documented at this time," Good-
man said.

Spotlight On Natalie Merkur Rose
Grandparents are very impor-
tant people to have around, and
Natalie Merkur Rose knows that
having her grandparents close
while she was growing up fostered
her love of older people.
Rose has joined the staff of the
Tampa Jewish Family Service as a
gerontology specialist. While
spending her Junior year in col-
lege in Israel, Natalie worked as a
volunteer for "Lifeline for the
Elderly," a sheltered workshop
for the elderly and disabled. This
initial work with older people
grew into her decision to pursue a
social work career.
Rose is a native New Yorker
and in 1983 received a joint social
work degree from Columbia
University and a master's degree
from the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America.
Since Rose's area of interest
and expertise is with the elderly
she will be working side by side
with Dale Johnson, a specialist on
aging at the Tampa Jewish Family
Service. She hopes to incorporate
these interests in providing for
the social service needs of the
residents of the Jewish Towers.
Another portion of Natalie's
work in the Tampa community
will be with the Mitzvah Corps.
The Mitzvah Corps provides
volunteers to visit the elderly

portunity for their growth," she
The Masadas of
High School In Israel
Climbing Masada is but one
geographic milestone for students

academic programs.
Milestones in personal growth
may differ for each student, but
the gains of self-confidence and in-
creased understanding of self may
affect spheres of academic, emo-
tional and spiritual accomplish-
ment as well.
The investigative work,
readings, discussions, essay
writing, sharing of experiences,
and of living space all contribute
to the enhancement of self-
reliance and expanded insights.
Western civilization is studied
through the disciplines of

During the years that Natalie ,1
and her husband, Rabbi David
Rose of Congregation Kol Ami,
lived in Seattle, Washington, she
worked for the Interfaith
Volunteer Caregivers Program.
This program dealt with helping
the home bound elderly with their
daily tasks, making it easier for
them to stay at home.
In keeping with her intense
Judaic feelings, Rose developed a
program which provided consulta
tions for the staffs of non-
sectarian agencies that were se-
rving the Jewish elderly. She
taught them the uniqueness of
working with the Jewish elderly
so that they could be more
successful in dealing with their
Natalie's social work has encom-
passed many different groups
within the aging population. She
has worked with blind seniors and
spent much time bringing the
sighted and non-seeing togetheij
and teaching them acceptance of
each other. By using stories by
Jewish authors she was able to
create sensitive discussions about
the issues these stories triggered.
Looking toward the future Rose
said, "I would like to do some pre-
retirement planning through the
Tampa Jewish Family Service or
through private business in the
areas of finances, housing, work
or the loss of work, community in-
volvement, and relationship
issues. These tender issues delve
very deep and may deal with in- I
tergenerational problems; or]
channelling the guilt of long
distance relationships, especially
in this community where there are
so many nuclear families; and the'
problem of coping with a spouse
who is suddenly home all day."
Rose concluded by saying, "the
problems of the elderly are many
and it will be a challenge to me
and to the Jewish community to
deal with these for everyone's

Tax Reform
May Undermine Philanthropic Giving
President Reagan is now
intensifying his efforts to
secure passage in Congress
of the tax-reform proposals
submitted by the Treasury
Department to the Senate
and the House of Represen-
tatives. Some of the pro-
posals undermine fund-
raising by institutions enjoy-
ing tax deduction. They are
strongly opposed by Jewish,
Catholic, Protestant and
other non-profit organiza-
tions and institutions stan-
ding to lose some $6 billion
annually in contributions, if
the new tax structure pro-
posed by the Administration
is passed by Congress.
There is today a coalition of
about 600 central Jewish and non-
Jewish bodies philanthropic,
welfare, cultural, educational,
religious which sponsor fund-
raising for communal causes and
are fighting the Administration's
tax reform plan, jointly and in-
dividually. They all make it clear
that they are not against tax
reforms in general, but are con-
cerned exclusively with the provi-
sions in the Administration's pro-
posals that repeal, or cut,
charitable deductions. They deal
only with the adverse impact of
these provisions on charitable
Federations is one of the founders
and leading members of this coali-
tion. It includes the Red Cross,
Salvation Army, National Council
of Philanthropy, United Way of
America, American Hospital
Association, American Council of
Education, and practically all
groups in the country conducting
fund-raising, including the Na-
tional Conference of Catholic
Philanthropies and the National
Urban League. A study under-
taken for this coalition established
that the Treasury plan would br-
ing about a reduction of 28 per-
cent in the level of cash-giving to
charity and a 38 percent decline in
gifts of securities and other ap-
preciated property.
The Jewish Federations, which
raise more than $600 million an-
nually, would stand to lose about
$125 million a year. The United
Jewish Appeal would lose in
substantial contributions from
large givers whose federal tax is
currently limited to 50 percent of
their income, but will be reduced
to 35 percent under the Ad-
ministration's tax proposals,
thereby discouraging the incen-
tive of giving to tax deductible
Many of the tax-payers in the
category of the reduced 15 per-
cent tax might be tempted to
benefit for themselves from this
reduction. Other Jewish causes
which raise a total of about $130
million a year under the present
tax-deductible system will also
THERE IS ALSO an important
aspect in the Administration's tax
reform structure which evokes
special concern of Jewish
organizations engaged in fighting
anti-Semitism and preventing
conflicts between Jews and other
ethnic groups the proposal to
eliminate the deductibility of state
and local taxes from the federal
tax return.
All leading Jewish organizations
interested in preventing tension
^mong racial and ethnic
minorities fear that this provision
would exacerbate intergroup con-
flicts as competition for scarce
funds intensifies.
A joint statement opposing this
proposal was submitted to both
Houses of Congress by the
American Jewish Congress on
behalf of the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC) and the Na-
tional Urban Coalition (NUC).
The joint statement emphasizes
that the constituent groups of
these two umbrella organizations
of the community relations agen-
cies "are not only concerned with
the potential for substantive
budget cuts which the Administra
tion's tax structure would bring,"
but "also with how these would af-
fect relations between racial and
ethnic groups." Deductibility of
state and local taxes from federal
income tax has been a part of the
Internal Revenue Code since 1913
with the adoption of a federal in-
come tax.
"The Treasury Department's
proposal to repeal the deductibili-
ty of taxes paid to state and local
governments would severely
hamper their ability to fund vital
programs for their residents and
would almost immediately fire a
revolt by taxpayers to lower state
and local taxes since they would
become more costly in after-tax
dollars," the joint memorandum
warns. It predicts that "such a
revolt would have a strong chance
of success." Some 33 million
households take the deductions
for state and local taxes.
defending the Administration's
proposal to eliminate state and
municipal taxes from federal in-
come tax, says this is necessary
for the reduction of the huge
federal deficit in the shortest
possible time. The Treasury
Department asserts that without
the substantial revenues from
elimination of state and local tax
deductions, the whole tax reform
package would be in jeopardy.
The constituent organizations of
the National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council and of
the National Urban Coalition re-
ject this formulation. They assert
that deductibility could be retain-
ed, if adjustments were made in
other parts of the Administra-
tion's proposal, including a
substantial tax on import oil.
How would the shifting of
responsibilities and functions
from the national level to state
and local government affect
schools, hospitals, welfare and
other institutions which have
already cut their budgets earlier?
The National Association of
Counties, analyzing the strong
negative impact which the
elimination of deductibility would
have, came to the conclusion that
the loss of deductibility "would
wreak havoc on state and local
consider that the Administra-
tion's proposal is "a mere shifting
of responsibilities without the
financial means to provide for
their implementation, and that
states, cities, counties would find
it impossible to implement these
There are serious differences
between the Senate and the
House of Representatives with
regard to some parts of the Ad-
ministration's tax plan. Experts
believe that it will take a long time
before a joint committee of both
Houses, now negotiating the dif-
ferences, will reach a compromise
decision which will bring the
measure to a vote on the floor of
the Congress.
Israel Asks To Extradite
Nazi Brunner from Syria

Syria should "hand over Brunner
to an impartial international
tribunal that will try him for his
crimes against humanity."
NOTING THAT Brunner, a
former captain of the Nazi SS, "is
responsible for sending more than
120,000 Jews from Austria, Ger-
many, France, Slovakia and
Greece to their deaths in Nazi con-
centration camps," Netanyahu
said that after the war Brunner
escaped to Syria, "posing as
business associate of Adolf
Eichmann, using the alias Georg
During the war, Eichmann, the
Israeli envoy continued, "was so
impressed with Brunner's 'effi-
ciency' that he put him in charge
of the Zentralstelle fuer Juede
Auswanderung, the infamous
bureau responsible for 'cleansing'
Nazi Germany of Jews."
Recently, the German weekly
Bunte interviewed and
photographed Brunner in his villa
in Damascus. Despite this and
other evidence, the Syrians con-
tinue to deny that Brunner is liv-

he was a security adviser' to

a precedent-setting action, the
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations (UAHC) endorsed the
principle of Reform Jewish day
schools as a "valid educational op-
tion" while rejecting public funds
for the support of private
By a two-to-one margin,
delegates to the UAHC's 58th
biennial convention voted to
develop curricula and materials
for "full-time Reform Jewish
schools," and to prepare training
programs for teachers and ad-
ministrators. The 3,000 delegates
also voted "to provide guidance
and counsel to those congrega-
tions and communities that are
considering the establishment od
such schools."
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
president of the UAHC, hailed the
adoption of the resolution, declar-
ing: "The vote moves our religious
community toward a future of
greater self-reliance. It gives us a
way to harvest the fruits of our
deepening commitment to
Judaism without (straying our
universalist concerns." A similar
resolution had been defeated
twice before at previous UAHC
The resolution said, in part:!
"The UAHC reaffirms its commit-1
ment to the principles of public!
education and calls upon our
gregations and our Commission I
on Social Action to develop pro-
grams aimed at encouraging our
congregants to involve
themselves actively and directly in
efforts to strengthen their local |
public systems."
The resolution opposed tuition
tax credits for privatp schools and
called for more federal funds for I
education programs designed to I
help minority, disadvantage!! andj
disabled students. The resolution I
added: "Today many public
schools are plagued by economic,
educational and social problems.
It is incumbent on the Jewish com
munity to be deeply involved in
the struggle to strengthen and re-
invigorate our public schoolj
The resolution noted with'
"pride and appreciation" that
about 10 Reform Jewish day
schools are already in operation,
and that other congregants are
currently exploring the establish-
ment of such schools.

The musical production had its beginning in 1969
as a contest in Israel for the best music set to
biblical verse. It was so successful that it has
become an annual event. Composers from the
world over submit their work to be judged by the
people of Israel who select the winners. Such now
familiar melodies as "Oseh Shalom" and
"Malchutcha" were originally festival hits.
This show is in combination of old and new
favorites, totally new numbers and old lyrics set to
new music. The moods of the songs range from un-
bridled exuberance to somber beauty to high
On previous American tours, the festival was
described as "dynamic, innovative and attrac-
tive." The New York Post referred to it as
"something of a miracle." The New York Times
praised its "infetiously open spirit" and "foot-
tapping rhythmic lilt."
As one member of the case said, "This music is a
part of us, and it is important that it be
remembered and kept alive." Under the direction
of Danny Litai, the performers reach out and
touch their audience, whether Jewish or not,
through energy, talent and sincerity. They exhibit
a sincere willingness to share their unique heritage
and identity which is compelling.

Jewish Agency Seeking To Develop
Tourism To Aid Economy In Galilee
UJA Watch Desk Editor
Seeking to build on nature's
blessing of majestic mountains
and the serene Sea of Galilee, the
Jewish Agency Settlement
Department plans to develop
Israel's Upper Galilee as a major
overseas vacation center.
Moshe Gourelick, the Agency's
Upper Galilee Settlement direc-
tor, said in an interview in this an-
cient city with 50,000 current
residents, that 10 to 15 tourism-
based Moshavim could be initiated
in the next five years, "more if
funds are available."
"Our budget is $16 million and
we initiate two to three new set-
tlements a year," said Gourelick,
whose region encompasses
400,000 acres west and south of
the border with Syria, well within
Israel's pre-1967 borders. "For
each additional $1-1.5 million, we
could initiate another settlement.
We could put $9 million more to
work within a year if we have it."
Gourelick said tourism's
development here would provide
jobs for farm-reared youngsters
without non-agrarian skills; diver-
sify Israel's northern economy,
which is increasingly high-tech
west of here and north of Haifa;
increase Jewish population in
Israel's North, down to less than
50 percent even counting the
heavily-Jewish cities of Nahariya
and Acco; and encourage Israelis
to vacation, and spend disposable
income, at home.
Nearly all the 150 Galilee set-
tlements, including 50 under
Agency care, have a mix of ec-
onomic activity, but overall the
economy of the Moshavim is
The region's tourism prospects
include the Sea of Galilee, ideal
for boating and beachfront
development, and framed by
beautiful mountains amenable to
hiking, climbing, picnicking and
horseback riding. Year-round
temperatures are usually brisk to
warm and, Gourelick noted,
"There is no rainfall from Pesach
through Succot."
American Jews can help convert
blueprints into a vacation
dreamland by contributing to the
Jewish Agency Settlement
Department through the Tampa
Jewish Federation United Jewish
Appeal Campaign, the main
source of Jewish Agency funds.
Perhaps many of them will come
here to vacation, in time, and will
be able to say proudly, "I helped
make this dream come true."

3 Israelis To Testify
At Egyptian Inquiry
Three Israelis were ex-
pected to testify before an
Egyptian inquiry into the
killing of seven Israeli
tourists in Sinai last month
- allegedly by an Egyptian
soldier, the Foreign
Ministry announced.
However, two of the three
I is were not expected to at-
tend the inquiry on the scheduled
since that day marks the 30th
.fter the'murder of one of the
witness' sons in the tragic inci-
dent at Ras Burka, some 40
kilometers south of Eilat.
The Foreign Ministry said
Sarah Baum and her 12-year-old
son, Ehud, together with Gera
Koren, would give evidence at the
inguiry in Neviot in the Sinai. But
Baum indicated a conflict with
scheduling, saying she will be at-
tending a memorial service at the
gravesite of her other son,
10-year-old Amir, a victim of the
Sinai attack.
EHUD, her other son, said he
refused to enter the area again
unless he was accompanied by a
large force of armed Israeli
soldiers to ensure the security of
his family.
Meanwhile, Sarah Baum and
other eye-witnesses said that the
ngrsons called to give evidence to
the Egyptian inquiry are not the
right people to describe what hap-
pened and give an accurate ac-
count of the delays by the Egyp-
tians in administering first aid to
the wounded, which some experts
said would probably have saved
the lives of at least five of the
seven people killed in the attack.
These eye-witnesses said that
others present at the foot of the
sand dune or in the vicinity could
see more than the three persons
summoned to appear before the
inquiry, who had been pinned
down by the soldier's fire and the
orders of other Egyptian soldiers
on the spot.
Egyptians do not want to hear
eye-witnesses whose evidence will
unmask glaring mistakes by the
Egyptians, and she blames the
Israeli Foreign Ministry for not
pressing the Egyptians enough to
complete a speedy investigation of
the incident.
She suggested that the Israeli
government does not want to em-
barrass Cairo and hamper any
peace negotiations. The Foreign
Ministry rejects the charges.

Some 300 delegates from
the Latin American conti-
nent and the Arab world
met here in the Seventh
Congress of the Federation
of American Arab Organiza-
tions, where they adopted a
program aimed at advanc-
ing the cause of the PLO on
the continent, the World
Jewish Congress reports.
The Colombian press reported
that the meeting considered two
main issues: the organization of
joint Chambers of Commerce link-
ing the Arab countries with those
in Latin America where they do
not yet exist, "for the economic
cooperation between the Arab and
American peoples"; and an ag-
gressive pro-PLO and anti-Israel
propaganda campaign including
the defamation of Zionism.
THE LATIN American branch
of the WJC quoted one of the
delegates as saying that "the
struggle against Zionism is not
fought only in Palestine or any
other Middle Eastern place, but
everywhere. The battle is not only
one with weapons, but a social,
cultural and spiritual war."
The president of FEARAB?
Rams Chacra, called upon all the
affiliates on the continent "to
make a major effort in the strug-
gle against the common enemy, so
as to incite the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization, sole represen-
tative of the Palestine people, to
unite its forces towards the crea-
tion of a free and sovereign
Palestinian state."
Chacra added that the holding
of this Congress in Colombia is
"not accidental" but the result of
several factors, such as the impor-
tance of the Arab communities ir.
the country and in Central
America, according to the El
Espectador newspaper.
Another daily El Tiem\,.
reports that during the meeting,
Jose Name Teran, former presi-
dent of the Colombian Parlia-
ment, "gave his most explicit sup-
port to the Arab cause, particular-
ly the struggle of the heroic
Palestinian people."

stitute. As such, students will do
much of their course work as par-
ticipants in the Program.
The principle ingredient re-
quired of all participants is a trust
in the expertise of the staff. All
who have experienced this pro-
gram will testify to their ex-
cellence. Thus, each student
comes with a commitment to fully
participate, agreeing that classes,
both at home base and in the field,
are not options to choose and
select; however, it is the option of
the student to take notes, to read
the text and to study.
Analysis of Teaching (EDG
5325) will examine the teaching
environment and the teaching act
resulting from careful planning,
staff development and teacher
skill and talent. This course will
cause students to focus upon the
teachers and teaching/learning
situations they will find
themselves in while participating
in the Educators Program in
Israel. Special attention will be
paid to teacher effectiveness.
Students will be provided with
selected reading material and
observation/log sheets which will
serve as the theoretical basis for
analysis and criticism of the
teaching acts observed.
The educators will be housed in

The Opening Plenary, which
will take place at the Kennedy
Center on Wednesday evening,
Nov. 13, will include a dramatic
presentation, "The Golden land
A 100-Year Journey Through the
Changing Lives of Jewish Im-
migrants to North America." The
keynote address on "The Coming
of Age of North American Jewry:
Strengthening our Communal Af-
firmation" will be delivered by
CJF President Shoshana S.
This year's Assembly will in-
clude 11 forums, consisting of for-
mal presentations made by ex-
perts and panels, with oppor-
tunities for questions and
answers. The forums will deal
with the following topics: "The
Search for Peace in the Middle
East," "New Lifestyles and
Jewish Populations at Risk,"
"Soviet Jewry," "Creativity and
Continuity," "Planning Jewish
Education," "European Jewish
Communities," "Meeting Human
Service Needs," "Ethiopian
Jewry," "Major Domestic Issues
Facing American Society," "Shif-
ting Alliances Within the Arab
world" and "The Jewish
Two of the forums, "New
Lifestyles and Jewish Populations
at Risk" and "Planning Jewish
Education," will be followed by
workshops enabling participants
to explore these topics in greater
depth. In all, close to 100
workshops have been scheduled
throughout the Assembly for
discussion and interchange on a
wide variety of topics, including
politics, church-state issues, anti-
Semitism and anti-Zionism, black-
Jewish relations, Ethiopian
Jewry, the Jewish family, Jewish
education, child day care and
meeting the needs of Jewish
singles, adolescents, the elderly,
the poor and near poor, the disabl-
ed and Soviet immigrants.
In addition, this year, the
Assembly will include a special
ceremony commemorating the
40th anniversary of the liberation
of the concentration camps and
honoring the survivors. Each of
the over 200 Federations across
the U.S. and Canada have been
asked to delegate one survivor to
stand in the audience with a lit
candle at the Thursday evening
plenary to represent all the sur-
vivors in that community. In addi-
tion, six survivors will stand on
the stage, each representing one
million of the six million Jews who
perished during the war, and be
joined by six children who are
descendants of survivors to light a
menorah symbolizing survival and
the future.
Because the Assembly im-
mediately precedes President
Reagan's Summit Conference
with the Soviet leadership,
Presidents and Executives of
Jewish Federations will be pr-
esenting letters at the Soviet Em-
bassy on Thursday and Friday
mornings, Nov. 14 and 15, pro-
testing the failure of the Russians
to permit emigration of Soviet
Jews. It is hoped that this
demonstration will ensure con-
sideration of this issue at the
Sumit Conference.
The Council of Jewish Federa-
tions is the national association of
200 Jewish Federations, the cen-
tral community organizations
which serve nearly 800 localities
embracing a Jewish population of
more than 5.7 million in the U.S.
and Canada.
Established in 1932, CJF helps
strenthen the work and the im-
pact of Jewish Federations by
developing programs to meet
changing needs, providing an ex-
change of successful community
experiences, establishing
guidelines for fund raising and
operations and engaging in joint
planning and action on common
purposes dealing with local,
regional and international needs.

Parliament Supports Peres
European Parliament voted to
back "with all its available
means" Israeli Prime Minister
Shimon Peres' peace plan. The
Parliament, which represents the
10 European Economic Communi-

Jordan to heed the Israeli
Premier's calls.
The resolution, proposed by the
Socialist group and backed by the
Italian Communists, also called
for the recognition of the
Palestine Liberation Organization
as the representative of the
Palestinian people and said it
should take part in the Middle
East peace process. The resolu-
tion was adopted by a show of
hands without an actual vote

Of Reading
Congregation Kol Ami's
Sisterhood is excited about a very
special program which will take
place at their next meeting on
Nov. 20 at 7:45 p.m.
Recognizing the importance of

and pleasure which merits, Wen-

on Reading. In addition to having

motivation techniques, the
benefits of reading aloud to
children and will offer a suggested
reading list divided into various
age levels.

great value to all parents who are

cultivated in children and will help
them in so many phases of their
Chanukah Celebration Scheduled
For Sunday, Dec. 8 at The JCC
"This years' Chanukah
celebration offers something
special for everyone," commented
Leah Davidson, chairman of the
Chanukah commitee for the
Jewish Community Center.
Scheduled for 3:30-6 p.m. at the
Jewish Community Center, ac-
tivities will include family wor-
shops (menorah making, dreydle
painting, games and latke mak-
ing), group singing and dancing, a
Soviet Jewry march, and will con-
clude with a community candle-
lighting of the Menorah.
"The march and the candle
lighting, organized by the Young
Adult Division of the Tampa
Jewish Federation, will display
the unity that many Tampa Jews
feel towards their brethren im-
prisoned in the Soviet Union,"
commented Steffie Hoff, chair-
man of the march. A brief service
will occur at 5 p.m. prior to the
march to bring many of the
refusnik's names to the com-
munity's attention. Following the
service, "we will march in
solidarity," added Hoff, "around
the block, back to the JCC, where
children from the Hillel school will
present their Soviet Jewry banne-
rs and youth groups will lead
songs in a friendship circle." The
community candle lighting will
conclude the festivities.
Everyone in the community is
invited. For more information,
please contact the Tampa Jewish
Community Center, 872-4451.
