1986The Year To Make The Most of Your Charitable Deductions
When one contributes cash or
property to charitable organiza-
tions, it makes sense to arrange
the donations in such a way as to
save the most taxes. This year af-
fords taxpayers with a unique op-
portunity to maximize tax sav-
ings. Although the tax reform act
passed by Congress will not affect
most of the current rules on
charitable contributions, the
lowering of the rates will certainly
reduce the value of deductions in
future years. Thus, taxpayers can
benefit from making gifts now
and taking advantage of the cur-
rently favorable rates for
How Much Can Yoa Deduct?
As a general rule, individuals
who itemize can take a yearly
deduction of up to 50 percent of
adjusted gross income (AGI) for
contributions made to all qualified
(religious, educational, etc.). Ex-
amples of organizations that
qualify your gift for the 50 per-
cent limitation are the Jewish
Federation, TOP Jewish Founda-
tion, JCC, Jewish Family Ser-
vices, your local synagogue, and
your college alma mater.
However, certain types of pro-
perty donated to charitable in-
stitutions are not entitled to the
50 percent limitation. There is a
special 30 percent ceiling that ap-
plies to certain types of ap-
preciated property. Thus, if you
make a contribution to your
favorite charity of property on
which there is a long-term capital
gain, that property is generally
deductible up to 30 percent of
Gifts of Appreciated Property
When you make a deductible
charitable contribution, only part
of it comes out of your pocket; the
government, in effect, shares the
cost by reducing your income tax
up to one-half of the amount con-
tributed. In some cases, however,
costs can be reduced even more.
To accomplish this, you should
make your contribution in ap-
preciated property such as stocks,
bonds or real estate, etc. The
greater the appreciation com-
pared to the cost, the greater the
tax benefit. This rule applies
because a donation involving most
types of long-term capital gain
property entitles you to a
charitable deduction for the full
value of the property and allows
you to escape taxes on the ap-
preciation in value. The untaxed
capital gain is not considered to be
a "tax preference" that is subject
to the alternative minimum tax
for certain individuals. Giving the
property as a contribution would
allow you to eliminate the long-
term capital gains tax of up to 20
Getting a Charitable Deduction
Without Giving Up Income
It is possible to leave certain
types of property to a charitable
organization after your death (or
the death of yourself and your
spouse) in a way that gives you an
immediate charitable deduction
without a loss of income from pro-
perty during your life. This way,
you can get a deduction now for
such property, though, for prac-
tical purposes, you keep it for life.
The basic procedure for achiev-
ing this goal is (1) to transfer the
title of the property to a trust for
delivery to the charity, and re-
quire the trust to pay you a cer-
tain amount for life or for a set
period of years (up to 20); or (2) to
transfer the property to certain
"pooled funds" set up by charity
that give you a life income interest
with the charity keeping the re-
mainder at your death. This
maneuver provides you with an
immediate charitable deduction
for the present value of the
charity's remainder interest in the
property. For a non-pooled in-
come trust setup to work, it must
be structured using either of these

(2) A so-called "unitrust,"
which specifies that the income
beneficiary is to receive annual
payments based upon a fixed
percentage of the net fair market
value of the trust's assets as
determined each year.
Creating one of these trusts is
particularly advantageous this
year. The trust can be funded with
appreciated property as discussed
in the preceding section, thus
resulting in maximum utilization
of your charitable deduction under
the current tax law. However, the
future income distributed to you
and your family will be taxed at a
lower rate when the 1986 Tax
Reform Act becomes law. These
trusts provide a way of mBm a
gift of property to a charitable
organization this year, of max-
imizing the charitable deduction
and of deferring income to future
years at a lower tax rate. In addi-
tion, the trust could be funded
with municipal bonds since the

will be passed through to the

Scholars Urge End to Religious Strife
Refusenik Being Denied
Medical Help After Beating
By YITZHAK RAB1
NEW YORK (JTA) Dr.
Vladimir Magarik, the father
of Jewish Prisoner of Cons-
cience Aleksei Magarik, said in
a press conference here
recently that his son is being
denied medical attention after
he was brutally beaten in the
Siberian labor camp where he
is serving a three-year
sentence on trumped-up
charges of "drug possession.
Dr. Magarik said that he
spoke on the phone with his
son's wife, Natasha, in
Moscow, who informed him
that Aleksei has a severely cut
lip as a result of the vicious
beating he suffered when he
refused to join the labor
camp's internal police.
"My son was beaten because
I am a citizen of Israel and
because he applied to leave for
Israel. He is considered an
'enemy of the state' because
his father has an Israeli
passport," Dr. Magarik said.
HE POINTED out,
however, that his son, a
28-year-old cellist and a father
of a baby boy, was transferred
from the section for hardened
criminals in the camp to a sec-
tion of less dangerous
The press conference was
sponsored by the University
Service Department of the
American Zionist Youth Foun-
dation and the Coalition to
Free Soviet Jews.
The press conference also
marked the conclusion of a
two-month visit here by Dr.
Magarik and his daughter
Ghana to publicize the plight of
Aleksei, particularly among
students and young people
across the United States. The
visit was sponsored by the
University Service Depart-
ment of the AZYF, the North
American Jewish Students
Network, and the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry.
During their visit, Dr.
Magarik and his daughter
undertook a bicycle "Freedom
Ride for Aleksei." "We travel-
ed more than 1,000 miles on
bicycles across the U.S. as well
as tens of thousands of miles
or more on planes and car,"
Dr. Magarik said. He said that
he and his daughter were very
encouraged by the support
they encountered by
thousands of young Americans
on behalf of the plight of
DAVID DINKINS, the
Manhattan Borough Presi-
dent, who also addressed the
press conference, said that he
sent cables to Aleksander
Rekunkov, the Soviet
copies to Soviet Leader
Mikhail Gorbachev as well as
President Reagan demanding
the release of Aleksei.
"I also hope to travel to the
Soviet Union as soon as possi-
ble to meet with officials and
personally plead the case of
Aleksei Magarik and other
refuseniks and Prisoners of
Conscience," Dinkins said. In
the meantime, he added, "We
demand that he (Aleksei)
receive humane treatment in

noted Jewish scholar and com-

acts of extremists on all sides
of the religious rifts that have
erupted among Jews in Israel,
the United States, and
elsewhere, urged all Jewry to
strive to end the conflicts and
not leave "the issues of Jewish
survival to the theologians
Striking a note of mingled
hope and sadness, Rabbi David
Polish also expressed dismay

of several widely respected
books on Jewish thought,
spoke at a session of the
American Jewish Committee's
annual National Executive

cluded Nov. 1 at the Seattle
The discord of which Polish
spoke has included sometimes
violent conflict between
secular and religious Jews in
Israel over such matters as
public advertising that the
religious faction finds obscene.
It has also included bitter
disagreement between Jews
who hew to the traditional
Jewish law that says that a
person is a Jew only if was
born to a Jewish mother or is a
convert, and those who say
that Jewishness can be
transmitted through the father
as well as the mother.
Also causing rancor has been
the dissension between those
who say that a conversion per-
formed by any ordained rabbi
is valid, and those who say that
only conversions performed by
Orthodox rabbis are
Calling the conflicts "a
perilous fracture," Polish said
that "the Jewish people,
through its own leaders ana in-
stitutions, has an obligation to
intervene." Specifically, he
said, "we must help raise the
consciousness of mainline Or-
thodoxy to the perils confron-
ting it by its retreat before the
Along parallel lines, he con-
tinued, "Reform and Conser-
vative Jews have also ratified
this abandonment of hope.
Secular Jews in Israel have
most recently joined the strug-
gle by enraged acts of retribu
tion upon Orthodox institu-
tions, leaving us appalled by
the ferocity of frustration that
triggered these acts."
Castigating those who ques-
tion whether some Jews are
"really Jewish," Polish ex-
horted: "Who may say that a
Russian Jew who risks his life
for his Jewishness, or an
Ethiopian Jew who trudged in-
to the Sudan, is disqualified
from living as a free authentic
Jew? Who may say that the

force organized specifically to
deal with the problem of
disunity in Jewish religious
life. Chaired by AJC vice presi-
dent Alfred Moses and com-
prising lay leaders of the major
American Jewish religious
movements, the task force,
said Rosenman had been
meeting regularly and had
recently issued recommenda-
tions for ameliorating the con-
flicts. Among these recom-
mendations, he said, were
That there be "a return to
civil discourse" among Jews;
that the various Jewish
religious movements "renew a
commitment to joint action on
a common Jewish agenda"-
that "the educational pro!
grams of each movement
stress not only the beliefs and
practices of that movement
but also the factors that united
all Jews and promote mutual
respect"; and that American
Jewry consider establishing a
national beth din (Jewish
religious court), with local
branches, that could deal with
certain religious issues in a
way acceptable to all Jewish
Quebec Leads Canada in
By MICHAEL SOLOMON
MONTREAL (JTA) -
Anti-Semitic sentiments are
more prevalent in Quebec pro-
vince, and in its largest city,
Montreal, than elsewhere in
Canada, according to a survey
by B'nai B'rith. The lowest in-
cidence is in British Columbia.
The B'nai B'rith 1985
Review, just published,
reported that from 1983 to
1985, an average of 22.4 per-
cent of Montreal residents felt
Jews have too much power,
compared to 16 percent in
Toronto and 5 percent in
In Montreal, 14.2 percent of
respondents to a poll said they
would not vote for a Jew, com-
pared to 7.1 percent in Toron-
to and 4.5 percent in Van-
couver. On a province-wide
basis, 19.6 percent of Quebec
citizens would not vote for a
Jewish candidate. The percen-
tage was 7.1 in Ontario and on-
ly 2 percent in British
Although there has been a
decline in anti-Semitic in-
cidents nationwide, 16.4 per-
cent of Canadians in 1985
thought Jews have too much
power compared to 12.7 per-
cent in 1984 and 13.5 percent
Prof. H. Taylor Buckner of
Concordia University in Mon-
treal, who analyzed the poll
data, told a press conference
that "lack of contact between
Francophone Quebecers and
the Jewish community" ex-
plains the greater prevalence
of anti-Semitic attitudes in the
Buckner suggested that con-
tributing factors were
Quebec'8 history and the
teachings of the Catholic
Church. He noted that older
and less educated persons
tended to be more prejudiced
than younger persons and
those educated beyond high
school. The 1986 poll was con-
ducted among 2,059 adults.
On the plus side, anti-
Semitic incidents such as van-
dalism, attacks on synagogues
and on private Jewish proper-
ty, fell from 126 in 1984 to 95
in 1985, a 24.6 percent drop.

Terrorism From Within And Without
Friday, November 14, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 5
Editor's Note: Rabbi Kenneth R.
Berger granted the Jewish Flori-
dian permission to print his Kol
Nidre (57W) sermon which he
delivered at Congregation Rodeph
Sholom on the eve of Yarn Kippur.
The fallowing are excerpts from
his sermon: "Terrorism From
Within And Without." (Part t)
KENNETH R. BERGER
What most baffles me is the
quasi-terror we cause among our
own people. Believe me, you don't
have to go to Damascus or Tripoli
to hear anti-Semitic remarks. To
tell you the truth, the most
negative slurs about Jews I've
heard in Tampa, are offered by
the Jews of Tampa.
We are excellent at -judging, at
gossipping. at slander. This one's
a chince, that one's a ganof, he's a
shelep, she's a hazer.
No, these Jews are not about to
bomb synagogues, they just
detonate verbal explosions the
Reform Temple is a church, the
Orthodox Shul, fanatics, Conser-
vative and Reconstructionist
mishugah. There is a little Yiddish
expression which says it all es
past nit it's unbecoming of us.
In fact, I absolutely believe that
we have nurtured a new breed.
Silberman speaks of it in his
bestseller A Certain People. It
is called the self-hating Jew The
Jewish anti-Semite. Open a PLO
office on Kennedy, he'll be the
first to join.
Last winter, I gave a benedic-
tion at the United Fund luncheon
at the Hyatt I told a nice
Talmudic legend and ended with
the words of the Motzee which I
translated into English. After we
began to eat, one man approached
me and said, "Rabbi, did you have
to say words in Hebrew? This is
America your are not in a
synagogue now." He had that
pesukah face look. I thought a
member of the Tampa Ministerial
Association, which still does not
allow rabbis to be members. I ex-
plained to him this is our prayer
for breaking bread. He said, to my
surprise, "I know, my father said
the Motzee three times a day, but
we are among Gentiles and you
embarrassed me." Es past nit
sad, so very sad.
A few years ago, Marvin Hier, a
rabbi in Canada, was invited to a
reception honoring Queen
Elizabeth and Prince Charles.
Rabbi Hier was seated next to a
justice of the Canadian Supreme
Court, who noticed the yarmulka
on the head of the rabbi. "Do you
have to wear that here?" said the
judge. "Religion is a private mat-
ter. In Europe, my grandfather
always wore one, but we are in
Canada now." The Rabbi's ex-
planation fell on deaf ears.
Later, as the guests were each
introduced to the Queen and
Prince, Prince Charles saw the
yarmulka and said: "I see you are
wearing a head covering. I know
that is a sign of your being Jewish.
I have always admired people who
are proud of their ethnic and
When the media people noticed
that the Prince had stopped to
chat with the rabbi, they all
wanted to know the content of the
discussion they gathered
around the rabbi for an interview.
Our friend, the judge, ran up and
cried. "You can interview me, I'm
also a Jew."
Yes, with self-hating Jews
who needs an Arafat? Es past nit
it is so unbecoming. I'll tell you,
and I don't mean to offend, but I
have to tell it the way it is Tam-
pa Jewry worries me.
A few weeks ago we held a
memorial service at Schaarai
Zedek for those killed in Istanbul.
Hillel School's Eighth grade made
us all proud, as they participated
before TV cameras, and religious
leaders from the community.
Afterwards, one of the priests
from Jesuit High School was so
moved by the poise of the
youngsters, and he said Rabbi,
up to what grade does Hillel
School go I said 8th there is
no high school? That's a shame, he
continued, we've found in the
Jesuit system that the greatest
success in instilling religious
values comes in the upper grades,
when the kids are more mature. I
said, yes, I agree but we've not
been able in our community to
muster the funds. He gave me a
puzzling look, but remained silent.
That puzzling expression has
bothered me as well.
I do not understand a strange
phenomena in our Tampa Jewish
community. There are many
Jews, who give more money to
parochial schools and private
schools than to our religious
schools, Jewish education, or
Jewish charity. That bothers me.
Jews here give more money to
museums, to the symphony, to the
Performing Arts Center than to
our synagogues or the Tampa
Jewish Federation. You know
what I say about this es past
nit. It's not right. Now.there is
nothing wrong with any of these
important causes. They are all in-
deed worthy of our support, but I
have always learned "charity
begins at home."
Is it that we are ashamed of our
Jewishness? Is it that we are try-
ing to buy our way in or appease?
Or is it that we have, in the im-
mortal words of Pogo, "Met the
enemy and they is us?" I don't
believe it. Not this community
with its great potential, with a
small core who work with sweat
and tears for the synagogues, for
the JCC, for Hillel School, the
Jewish Family Service. Then,
what is it? Maybe nobody asked
you? Well, I am asking you. Give
more! Match you give to non-
Jewish charities, and provide for
your own people. If not, es past nit
it's a shandah.
I do know that this is 1986 and
we are becoming as they always
say about Tampa "The Next
Great City," but not for Jewish
kids. No Hebrew High School, no
Day School through 12th Grade,
es past nit.
It's so sad, a few people in our
community could make all the dif-
ference. All of us, with a little ef-
fort, can have it all for ourselves,
for our children, for all Israel.
The piyot tells us hayom tivar-
ehanoo. Today, we need the bless-
ing, not tomorrow, or next year,
For we have learned a simple
message: Without Torah, we can-
not survive. Our kids must know
who they are and what it means to
be Jewish, or they will hate who
they are and be attracted to some
other faith. This consequence is
much worse than anything Arafat
or Khadafy could ever have in
store for us.
This is Kol Nidre eve. The
holiest moment on the Jewish
calendar. There is not an empty
seat, you are standing in the back.
You are here, because you are a
Jew. You are here because you
care. Everyone must do his/her
part. Call me after yuntof. It is
time for a real Tampa erechanoog
(self evaluation). Firstly, plan that
long-awaited trip to Israel. No
more delay, do it hayom.
Secondly, give generously to
your synagogue, give to our
Federation, invest in Israeli
Bonds, and do it hayom, so that
we can overcome the es pas nit
aspect of our Jewry.
For its is not only the terrorism
from abroad that we have to
withstand, but the subtle little
squirmishes which invade our own
mind and hearts. On Yom Kippur,
we need to grow beyond where we
are now. For then, we shall
emerge as an echad, as one people,
and the words of our Mahzor will
become a reality.

survivors of the Holocaust but of
Like the patriarchs and pro-
phets, Wiesel dares to confront
and question God. He writes,
There are no answers to true
questions. There are only good
questions, sometimes painful,
sometimes exuberant. All I have
learned in life is questions, and
whatever I have tried to share
with friends is questions."

To Wiesel, the Jew is "the great
questioner." Among the many ex-
amples in the Jewish past, he cites
Abraham questioning his father,
Terah, about idols snd Moses
demanding of Pharaoh, "How can
you kill children?"
No wonder then that this saintly
man confronted President
Reagan, as the prophet Nathan
did King David, about the proprie-
ty of the Presidential visit to SS
graves at Bitburg. With Wiesel,
certain themes always emerge,
dominate the Holocaust, of
course, but also words, the mean-
ing of silence, Judaism,
Jewishness, Israel, anti-Semitism.
Wiesel is the voice of the
Holocaust and though he has suc-
ceeded in depicting it with greater
clarity and definition than all who
have tried, he feels inadequate
because "Auschwitz defies the
novelist's language, the
historian's analysis, the vision of
He writes: We question today
. .. how such crimes and horrors
could have been committed ...
We shall never know why. All
questions pertaining to Auschwitz
lead to anguish."
Yet he loves words and their op-
He says that he is "against
words" and then in another con-
text contradicts himself by
writing, "everything that has to
do with writing is sacred."
But his love for words is ap-
parent and cannot be hidden as he
exploits them to the fullest to con-
vey the full range of his meaning
with concise clarity. Words are to
be treasured, quoted and above
He also has a special affinity for
silence. It has a profound meaning
for him. The Holocaust survivors
chose silence, he said, because
they felt inadequate to the task of
communicating "with language
that eludes language." When he
went to the Soviet Union, he
described the community he found
as the "Jews of silence," but it
was silence on the verge of
Through him silence has a voice,
resonating with the absence of
God and the presence of the
6,000,000 slaughtered by the
His pride in Judaism and
Jewishness reverberates. His
references to his Chassidic
childhood, his early studies of
Judaic lore, are bathed in warmth.
He finds it "maddening that

Jewish writers have to justify
themselves for writing about Jews
and Jewish themes" while no one
questions why Faulkner for exam-
ple, wrote about the South. He
writes about the Jewish people
with exultation as "a people of
history" and whom "everything is
connected. Words spoken 8,000
years ago affect us today."
And: "Alone a Jew is nothing;
with other Jews he is a force
because automatically he inherits

all the despairs and all the joys of
Thus, there are depths beyond

He probes the Jewish heart and
soul and challenges the world's
moraility and ethical standards
Mom than an author, he is a
teacher without rabbincial ordina-
tion, teaching Judaism to our
generation and those to come.
He is a prophet not of the future
but of tightness, decency, humani-
ty, justice and civilization itself.
Throughout this collection,
although Wiesel speaks with
frankness and bleak dismay of
human cruelty and degradation,
his voice and vision are pervaded
In this book, Wiesel speaks to
the reader with frank simplicity of
the causes and events that con-
cern and involve him. It is not a
collection to be skimmed nor to be
read in a few sittings but one into
which one plunges as deeply as
one can in order to ponder, to
have one's mind cleared and
refreshed and to be reinspired
with one's heritage and one's
place in life's eternal struggle.
He speaks not only to Jews but
all of mankind aspiring to a better
life in a better world.

TEL AVIV Israel's
Volunteer Blood Donors'
Organization, a support group of
Magen David Adorn, Israel's Na-
tional Blood Service, recently
celebrated their Jubilee Anniver-
sary by issuing an appeal to the
Israeli public to donate blood on
their 50th birthday, or on any fix-
ed date each year, thereby assur-
ing Magen David Adorn of the
vitally needed blood and blood
products to help in caring for the
sick and the wounded.
The Volunteer Blood Donors'
Organization was founded in Tel
Aviv in June, 1936, during the
Arab riots. Its work over the past
five decades has continued to pro-
ve its merit in peacetime and
throughout all of Israel's wars
with an outstanding record in
blood contributions, which are
now made within the framework
of MDA Blood Services. Members
donate blood several times each
year, and are always prepared to
give their blood when called upon.
Through the organization's cons-
tant flow of blood donations to
MDA, tens of thousands of lives
have been saved.
The importance of this organiza-
tion lies in the fact that it ensures
availability of known blood donors
in any given emergency. This is
accomplished by precise records
that are kept by the organization
and MDA on all volunteer donors,
according to blood groups, which
are maintained in a computerized
filing system. In the last few
years, the organization's services
have been frequently required in
cases of complex surgery requir-
ing multiple units of blood, as well
as special units for patients with
rare blood types or diseases of the
blood or kidneys.
With the new $12 million MDA
National Blood Service Center
under construction in Ramat Gan,
the function of the Organization
will be even more vitally impor-
tant in securing blood donations
to be processed by the MDA Blood

Ambassador Netanyahu Calls On American Jewish Youth To
Emulate Telem, The Movement For Fulfillment Through Aliyah
NEW YORK Benyamin
Netanyahu, Israel's Ambassador
to the United Nations was the key
speaker at the dedication of the
new national headquarters of
TELEM, the movement for
zionist fulfillment through Aliyah,
at 37 East 67 Street, New York
City. He congratulated the young
members, each of whom has
pledged to make Aliyah, for being
part of "the only self-liquidating
Jewish organization." He urged
them to share their commitment
to self-fulfillment as future
Israelis with their American
Jewish contemporaries, and at the
same time called upon Jewish
youth in the United States to
follow their path to their
homeland Eretz Yisroel.
Ambassador Netanyahu em-
phasized the uniqueness of the
Jewish people. "Every people that
lost its land has disappeared. Only
the Jews have survived displace-
ment and returned to their
homeland to reestablish
themselves as a nation." He spoke
of standing before the Arch of
Titus in the Roman Forum and
watching tourist groups of Scan-
dinavians and Japanese looking at
the menorah and both exclaiming
He said: "It got me to think. All
these people sense something
that that arch and its candelabra
is the world's most potent symbol
of the reversal of the laws of
history. The Romans, conquerors
of Jerusalem, who built the arch,
and their empire are dead. But
Jerusalem and its citizens are
alive and well and vibrant, and the
KGB Agents Treat
Nudel Roughly on Bus
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Long-time refusenik Ida Nudel
was removed from a Moscow-
bound bus in the city of
Bendery last month while en
route to meet with Elie
Wiesel, who was visiting
Moscow, according to both the
Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry and the Long Island
Committee for Soviet Jewry.
Witnesses said she was pick-
ed up by her arms and legs and
thrown from the vehicle to the
ground by three KGB agents,
who then took her to their
headquarters. Nudel was
reportedly told there that she
was barred from leaving the ci-
ty until Nov. 10, when she
must report back to learn what
further restrictions will be im-
posed upon her.
HA PER a
Nudel, 56, has been living in
exile in Bendery, Moldavia,
since 1982, and occasionally
allowed to return to Moscow
for medical care. She has been
banned from living in Moscow
since 1978, when she was ar-
rested for hanging a banner
from her Moscow apartment
balcony that read, "KGB, Give
Me a Visa to Israel."
Nudel first applied to im-
migrate to Israel in May 1971
along with her sister, Dana
Jews are a people reborn." Am-
bassador Netanyahu stressed that
"we didn't want to conquer a new
land. We wanted to go back to our
own homeland. It was a desire and
determination that 20 centuries
could not erode. Instead, it grew
stronger. You don't hear in Chris-
tian prayers 'next year in the
To the Telemites, all of whom
are preparing to go to Israel, he
spoke of having trekked across
Israel during his five years in the
army. "My soles were literally on
fire. Again and again I came to a
stop, tingling before a historically
meaningful spot." He asserted:
"We came back for all the Jews
who suffered massacre, pogroms,
degradation. A tremendous ex-
hilarating, personally fulfilling ex-
perience awaits you. Your friends
don't feel that way when they
walk in Poughkeepsie."
Emphasizing that he wasn't
speaking against individual
careers, he said "you have an op-
portunity that didn't exist for
your grandfather, who could only
dream 'next year in Jerusalem.'
Ambassador Netanyahu spoke
of the European community as the
great cultural and spiritual heart
of Jewish history for two millenia.
"And suddenly six million were
destroyed and the heart of Euro-
pean Jewry was torn out. But out
of the ashes Israel became the
new heart of the Jewish people."
In an appeal to American
Jewish youth, he concluded:
"Those who want to secure the
future of the Jewish people and
their own future as Jews have a
personal commandment: join
Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Benyamin Netanyahu is sneak-
ing to Telem members at the dedication of its national head-
quarters at 87 East 67th Street, New York City. Sam Shube, na-
tional co-chairman of Telem is directly to the Ambassador's left.
Next to him is Consul General Moshe Yegar. All Telem members
are pledged to Zionist self-fulfillment through Aliyah to Israel.
