Congressman Sam Gibbons to Receive JNF
'Tree of Life' Award On December 15
Congressman Sam Gibbons will
be presented with the Jewish Na-
tional Fund's coveted "Tree of
Life" award at a gala Dinner-
Dance to be held on Monday, Dec.
15 at the Tampa Hyatt Regency
Hotel, Downtown. In announcing
the selection of Congressman Gib-
bons for the JNF's highest award,
Dr. Joseph Sternstein, President
of the JNF, cited Congressman
Gibbons' continued and devoted
efforts toward the Bay area and
the betterment of life for so many.
Sam Gibbons is now serving his
12th term in the U.S. House of
Representatives where he is se-
cond only to the Chairman on the
powerful Ways and Means Com-
mittee. A Ways and Means Com-
mittee assignment is often called
the most sought after in the Con-
gress because of this committee's
responsibility for all revenue mat-
ters, including taxes, and 30 per-
cent of the federal government's
spending programs including
social security, medicare,
unemployment compensation,
public assistance, international
trade, and the specialized areas of
highway and airway development.
Mr. Gibbons also serves on the
Joint Committee on Taxation.
This is a statutory joint House-
Senate Committee composed of
the top members of the House
Ways and Means Committee and
the Senate Finance Committee.
This Committee plays an impor-
tant role in the decisions- that are
made concerning tax policy and
Elected to the Ways and Means
Committee in 1969, Mr. Gibbons
is now Chairman of the Trade
Subcommittee which has jurisdic-
tion over approximately $500
million in international trade. In
the area of trade expansion, Con-
gressman Gibbons was the prin-
cipal sponsor of the Caribbean
Basin Initiative program. Many
credit him as the driving force in

passage of this legislation. He
received special recognition from
President Reagan for his suc-
cessful effort.
Mr. Gibbons also received
Presidential commendation for
sponsoring the Trade Remedies
Reform Act. President Reagan
said the Trade Remedies law
"represents the most important
trade law approved by Congress
in a decade." The Act provides
that the U.S. as a matter of na-
tional policy will counteract any
foreign subsidy practices.
It is fitting that the Jewish Na-
tional Fund, which has planted
over 170,000,000 trees in Israel
... built mammoth systems of
roads and highways ... greened
the Negev into an agricultural
miracle and converted the barren
hillsides of the Galil into orchards
and farms ...- has established a
"Tree of Life" award. The tree
represents life itself.
The award is given in recogni-
tion of outstanding community in-
volvement. Some former reci-
pients of the JNF's "Tree of Life"
Award include President Gerald
R. Ford, Governor Nelson
Rockefeller, the Rev. Martin
Luther King, Bob Hope, Senator
Alfonse D'Amato, Senator Paula
Hawkins, Governor Bob Graham,
Donald Trump, Ted Turner, Ben-
jamin Holloway, Mayor Bob Mar-
tinez, and George Karpay.

Hiiiel Players To Present
'Chanukah At Oz' Dec. 14
A Chanukah show and dessert
party will be held on Sunday, Dec.
14 at 2 p.m. in the Jewish Com-
munity Center auditorium.
A play "Chanukah at Oz" will be
presented by the Hillel players
under the direction of Mary Lane
Goldman. Mary is known to many
in the community as a teacher and
drama specialist at the JCC sum-
mer camp.
In the story it is the eve of
Chanukah and Rachel and her
brother and sister are looking for-
ward excitedly to celebrating
Chanukah with a beautiful new
Menorah they will buy with the
pennies they have been saving all
year. Not to be! Mean old Mrs.
Gold, owner of the General store,
arrives to announce that she has
sold the Menorah. Although the
children cry and call her a "wick-
ed old witch," it is too late.
Rachel sings of going
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
to find a Menorah for the family's
Chanukah celebration. Suddenly a
tornado whisks Rachel, Daniel
and Sara over the rainbow to the
land of Oz, where they encounter
good witches, Munchkins, the
Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the
Cowardly Lion, the Wicked Witch
and her flying monkeys and, of
course, the Wizard of Oz.
Will the children find a Menorah
in Oz? You bet! Join all these
familiar characters in a delightful-
ly different version of this well
known story as they sing and
celebrate Chanukah in Kansas.

Musim tovim means "good deeds," and that's an understate-
ment when you're talking about Barney Anton. A resident of
Tampa for 45 years (formerly from Israel), Barney was recently
honored by Rodeph Sholom and Kol Ami when both congrega-
tions placed leaves on their Tree of Life as tokens of their ap-
preciation for all the wonderful things he does everyday. This is
the 37th year that Barney has made daily hospital visitations at
six Tampa hospitals. He's the one proudly wearing his "visitation
coat" with the Mogen David on the pocket.
Barney, who has one son, Leonard, and five grandchildren, ask-
ed us to especially thank Rabbi Rose and Rabbi Berger and their
boards and congregations on his behalf for the leaves. We're hap-
py to pass on his appreciation, and add ours to an outstanding
Happy 4th Birthday, Mary Walker Apartments. It must have
been quite a celebration when the residents of the Mary Walker
Apartments paid tribute to their board and volunteers at a recent
champagne dinner.
Honors and appreciation went to Juliet Rodriquez, for making
her dream a reality; to Sol Walker for his endowent and con-
tinued contributions and involvement and to Ron Rudolph for
serving as president of the board of directors for the past four
years. All the volunteers (and they could sure use some more!) and
past presidents and board members were recognized for their in-
valuable help.
There was lots of laughter and toasts and gratitude. Merv
Snyder, classical pianist, and Joseph Maxxone, Italian vocalist,
performed after dinner. Mazol Tov, and many happy returns.
AZA elects new officers. Congratulations to the new slate of
officers of AZA. They are president Brent Kleinman, son of Toby
and Leonard Kleinman, 10th grader at Berkeley Prep; Howard
Seelig, program vice president, son of Harriet and Mark Seelig,
11th grader at Chamberlain; Clay Rosenberg, membership vice
president, son of Madelyn and Stanley Rosenberg, an 11th
grader at Jesuit; Jason Kerban, treasurer, son of Lois Kerban
and Alan Kerban, 11th grader at Chamberlain; David Geigar,
secretary, son of Nancy Geigar, a 9th grader at Jesuit; and
Stephen Viders, corresponding secretary, son of Elaine and Ar-
thur Viders, and a 10th grader at Tampa Prep.
The group meets every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish
Community Center, North Branch, with adviser Al Aronovitz.
New members in 9th through 12th grade are always welcome; call
Brent at 961-6908 for more information.

Why The
Lion of Judah?
Through the centuries, the Lion
of Judah has come to symbolize
not just Judah and his tribe but
the entire Jewish people. Jewish
women in nearly 100 communities
currently wear the Lion of Judah
pin symbolizing their commitment
to their people. The program was
introduced in Miami in 1972. Prior
to that time there were no women
giving a gift of $5,000. That first
year they had 42 new gifts at that
level. Since then it has grown 650
percent with 320 women in 1985.
Here in Tampa the Lion of Judah
was started in 1983. Initiated by
Bobbe Karpay, 14 women made
their commitment of a $5,000 in-
dividual gift to the Women's Divi-
sion campaign. Since then Nellye
Friedman, Blossom Leibowitz,
and Janet Kass have chaired this
division. This year Lee Kessler
and Lili Kaufmann are chair-
women. This gift represents a
very special commitment it is
not made as a one time gift but
rather as an ongoing commit-
ment. Each year the gift is
repeated, a diamond is added to
the Lion of Judah pin. Those
women who contribute $10,000
and over have a ruby added. This
reminds us of a most famous
reference to women in the scrip-
tures, proverbs 31 "A woman of
valor seek her out for she is
valued above rubies." We current-
ly have two women in our com-
munity at that level of giving,"
Lee Kessler, Co-Chairwoman says
adding "both women who wear
the Lion of Judah pin can be look-
ed upon as the mainstay of the
Women's Division campaign. We
can look upon them are lionesses,
in that they are fierce in their
defense of those who depend upon
When Prime Minister Shimon
Peres welcomed Anatoly Sharan-
sky, he referred to A vital saying,
"She fought like a lioness." It cer-
tainly serves as a dramatic
reminder that one woman, if she is
sufficiently determined, can make
a significant difference in our
Jewish life today.
We salute the 20 women who

The Lion of Judah or Aryeh
Yehudah is first mentioned in the
Bible in the Book of Genesis,
Chapter 49, verse 9. The
Patriarch Jacob has called his 12
sons together and is prophesying
as to what he thinks will become
of them and their descendants. He
refers to his fourth-born, Judah,
as a "lion's whelp" ("gur aryeh")
who crouches down and springs
on his enemies. He likens him to
the king of beasts whose anger is
to be feared. Of Judah, his father
says that he will maintain the
sceptre of the ruler and be the
recipient of tribute and homage
from his people. It is said, in fact,
that the House of David comes
from the Tribe of Judah.
Through the centuries, the Lion
of Judah has come to symbolize
not just Judah and his tribe, but
the entire Jewish people. This lion
is frequently depicted on our
ritual objects such as rimonim
(Torah crowns or finials), yadaim
(Torah pointers) and parochot
(Torah mantles).
The Kings of Ethiopia proudly
referred to themselves as The
Lion of Judah as they believed
they were directly descended
from Menelik, the son of King
Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.
This queen was, of course, a black
Ethiopian woman.
Among Jews, names deriving
from the Lion of Judah are very
popular. There is often a mixture
of the Hebrew and Yiddish ver-
sions. Do you know someone nam-
ed either Judah Aryeh, Judah
Leib or Aryeh Leib?

Focus On Issues
And Then There Are None
Jewish people faces a calamitous
situation brought on not by its
traditional enemies but by a seg-
ment within Jewry itself which
divides the world first into
"them" and "ua" and invariably
rejects "them" and ends with
"us" alone.
This "dichotomous thinking,"
as Rabbi Harold Schulweis termed
it, is dangerous because "it will
rip us apart until there is only the
solipsiatic cult of one."
The consequence of "the
acrimony, the biting rhetoric, the
incivility that threatens the
delegitimation of persons, the
di8enfranchisement of
movements" was sounded by
Schulweis, the spiritual leader of
Valley Beth Shalom in Los
Angeles, at the 55th General
Assembly of the Council of Jewish
Addressing a plenary session of
the GA, which was attended by
more than 3,000 Jewish com-
munal leaders from North
America and abroad, Schulweis,
who was the scholar-in-residence
at die GA, pinpointed the source
of the "dichotomous thinking" as
the "anger in us; a cumulative
anger which has broken loose of
its traditional constraints, a long-
festering rage against Jewish im-
potence which has reached its
breaking point; a resentment not
against specific targets but
generalized against a whole range
of things. The anger, long repress-
ed, strikes out against any accessi-
ble target, including our-
Focusing on this anger, Schulweis
observed that it has been
engendered by a world which has
brutally terrorized and relentless-
ly assaulted Jews to a point where
it has produced a "massive
psychic trauma." The twin
elements in the traumatic process
are the Holocaust and the betrayal
and abandonment of the Jews by
the world at large in the time of
their greatest need.
"Now, forty years after the
volcanic earthquake that shook
the foundation of Jewish trust, the
tremblors continue to explode,"
Schulweis said.
"But now they reveal more than
Nazi-fascist atrocity. In recent
years, documents record the
betrayal of allies, the callousness,
the abandonment of the Jews by
prelates, princes, presidents; by
putative allies in Foreign Offices,
Parliaments, Congress even by
the 'great Jewish hope* of those
years, the apotheosis of non-
Jewish friendship, Franklin
Delano Roosevelt."
Jewish anger, Schulweis con-
tinued, "spreads out not only
against Nazism or Fascism. Post-
Holocaust anger is against the
whole of Western civilization
liberalism, rationalism, univer-
salism, pluralism, humanism,
democracy, the gods that failed at
Gentile history has bequeathed
to the Jewish people "blood libel,"
"ghetto" "pogrom," "decided"
and "genocide," he observed. And
the Jewish response by some Jews
to Western civilization, Schulweis
said, is: "we have nothing to learn
from you and your ethos. How
dare you lecture to us about
morality, freedom of conscience,
the treatment of minorities, the
mandate of pluralism after
Dachau, afer Treblinka, after the
White Paper, after the Bermuda
Conference, after the Struma and
the St. Louis? After Buchenwald
and Birkenau, Western civiliza-
tion has forfeited all claims to
moral credibility. We are exempt
from your hypocritical double
standards for us."
More and more Jews view
Westernization as betrayal and
those who accept its values as col-
laborators in the destruction of
Judaic tradition, Schulweis said.
This leads to exclusivism of
"them" versus "us" and is even-
tually internalized as "some of
us." But which "some" now
begins to fester as suspicion of
fellow Jews who do not adhere to
the cultist "us."
Schulweis pointed out that this
erosive and corrosive process
leads Hebrew schools, yeshivot,
day schools, summer camps,
youth programs, nurseries and
toddler programs to be denomina-
tionally segregated. The
denominations do not fraternize,
he noted.
"They do not sing, or dance or
play and certainly do not pray
together," he said. The denomina-
tions claim common festivals and
fasts but do not celebrate them in
common. The end result,
Schulweis declared, is "denomina-
tional apartheid."
Jewish anger has its place if it is
a catharsis to unite, he said. But
excessive and obsessive anger
threatens to tear the Jewish peo-
ple apart. Finding the proper
target for anger mobilized psychic
and physical energies to combat
the forces which menace and
threaten the survival of the
Jewish people. But generalized
anger indiscriminate anger is im-
potence turned inward against
"some of us." It leads to the aban-
donment of the world and to self-
proclaimed cultist purity,
Shculweis declared.
This, however, he said, is a
sterile form of existence. "How
we define ourselves and others,
whom we include and exclude,
with whom we choose to relate
and whom we choose to ignore,
determines our agenda and our
future," he said. "The post-
Holocaust question before us is
not who is a Jew or who is a rabbi
or who is my neighbor or who is
my brother or sister, but what
shall be the character of
To live in the world "is to live in
a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural,
multi-religious universe. To live
with Egyptians and Syrians, with
Blacks and Chicanos. The world is
our place, even as God is the place

of the world," Schulweis said. To
be engaged in the world "means
to related to non-Jews Chris-
tians, Moslems, gentiles, nations,
churches and with a vision and
wisdom to turn a new leaf in
Jewish history."
There are changes in attitudes,
statements and conciliar declara-
tions of the churches and "We
must take advantage of these
changes," he stated. "Something
new is happening among leading
theologians. We and our children
must read and hear new voices in
old institutions."
Schulweis referred to the chur-
ches' position on the conversion of
the Jews, the understanding of
the spiritual and emotional mean-
ing of Israel, the internal ques-
tioning of Christian prejudices,
the change of teaching texts in
Chrisian schools, the respect and
relevance of Jewish tradition and
"I am more interested in the
changing attitudes and teachings
of the churches' contemporary
leaders than in their ancestors'
failings; more in the churches'
descendants than in the churches'
ancestors ... I am more in-
terested in gaining new friends
and in fixating on old enemies,"
he said.
Schulweis said that for too long
a time Jews have spoken about
"the consipiracy of evil." It is now
time to begin speaking about "the
conspirary of good."
In an impassioned plea to the
assembled Jewish leaders at the
General Assembly, Schulweis call-
ed attention to "a muted part of
contemporary Jewish history," to
the "tragic neglect of uncounted,
unknown, unsung, unbefriended
gentiles who risked their lives and
the lives of their families to
shelter, feed and protect our
hounded people during the Nazi
Schulweis referred to "zechor,"
the Jewish imperative to
remember. This imperative he
pointed out, refers not only to the
evil but also to the good. It is not
fair that the goodness of the gen-
tiles who helped be forgotten, he
"We properly hunt down the
predatory criminals and their col-
laborators and bring them to the
bar of justice. We need our peo-
ple needs a Simon Wiesenthal
to search out the rescuers, record
their lives in our history, help
them and raise them to high
He pointed out that few young
Jews know about the Christian
families who hid Anne Frank; the
heroism of Mother Maria of Paris,
Father Bernard Lichtenberg, and
the villagers of Le Chambon who
were responsible for the rescue of
thousands of Jews in Nazi-
occupied France; the leaders of
the Bulgarian Othodox Church
who refused to deport Jews to the
Nazis; the Portuguese Consul
Aristides de Sousa Mendes who
saved thousands of Jews from
death and deportation; the Italian
army's rescue of thousands of
Croation and Yugoslav Jews; and
the sewer workers of Lvov wh
protected 17 Jews for 14 months
living in the sewers of Lvov, in-
fested with vermin, rats and cold.
Why, Schulweis declared,
"should Jewish children know on-
ly the killer of the dream and not
the heart and hand of gentile
rescuers?" Knowing this, he con-
cluded, would permit mercy to
control anger and offer a more
hopeful vision and heritage to the
next generation.

Peres Briefs Foreign Affairs,
Security Committees on Iran
Members of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Securi-
ty Committee were briefed
at a closed meeting by
Foreigh Minister Shimon
Peres Monday on Israel's
alleged involvement in the
Reagan Administration's
clandestine shipments of
arms to Iran.
They were clearly disgruntled
over the government's long delay
in filling them in on a subject that
has been making headlines in the
world media for weeks. But they
did not divulge the content of
Peres' briefing, inasmuch as clos-
ed meetings of the committee are
classified under the law.
MORE LIGHT may be shed on
Israel's policies toward the Iran-
Iraq war and the hostile regime in
Tehran when the Knesset plenum
opens debate on those matters.
The Cabinet Sunday withdrew its
objections to a Knesset debate on
the subject.
Yossi Sarid, of the leftist
Citizens rights Movement (CRM),
told reporters after the session
that it was ludicrous that the
Knesset was kept in the dark
while reports, true or false, were
circulated in the world media of
Israeli arms sales to Iran. He
maintained that, in any event,
such a policy was doomed to
But Ehud Olmert, a Likud
Herat MK, thought it was in
Israel's interest to help Iran to
make sure Iraq did not win the
six-year-old Gulf War. According
to Olmert, Iran, however hostile
to Israel, was fighting an arch
enemy of Israel. Nevertheless, he
criticized the government for not
briefing the Knesset until now on
such a crucial matter.
PERES, who was Prime
Minister at the time the alleged
arms shipments were made, told
reporters he gave the committee a
detailed report, including the ra-
tionale for Israeli policy. He said
there was no general policy to sell
arms to Iran. He refused to com-
ment when asked if Israel had
made an exception at the behest
of the U.S.
Readers Write
EDITOR; The Jewish Floridian:
The "Censorship Crusade" as
reported in the Tampa Tribune on
Nov. 16 poses a growing threat to
the civil liberties that we enjoy.
There has been a considerable up-
surge in attempts to restrict, ban
and censor books, magazines and
music. According to the Tampa
Tribune, "most censorship cam-
paigns are led by Fundamentalist
Christians and conservative
groups .." These people object
to an ever growing list of books on
the grounds of what they consider
to be immoral or anti-Christian
themes. Such books include
"Romeo and Juliet "
Shakespeare's "MacBeth," works
by William Faulkner and even the
Merriam-Webster's College
Censorship poses a serious
threat to anyone who cherishes
freedom. What happens if Fun-
damentalists decide that Jewish
authors and/or books that portray
a Jewish perspective are also ob-
jectional because they do not
promote Christianity?
Impossible you say! Well, con-
sider these facts: Lake City,
Honda, banned Chaucer's "The
Millers Tale." Ten years ago
Miami banned "Mother GoosT"
Numerous school systems have
banned or attempted to censor
Ihe Catcher in the Rye," "Our
Bodies Ourselves," Sid Simon's
values Clarification Handbook"
and even Steinbeck's classic "The
Grapes of Wrath."
While censorship is a concern to
all who value freedom, it is of par-
ticular concern to the Jewish com-
munity. As American Jews, we
treasure our religious freedom.
We need to exercise our "freedom
of expression" and inform our
elected officials that censorship is
unAmerican and poses a serious
threat to the very existence of our
free and democratic society.
Several countries have suc-
cessfully launched censorship
campaigns Cuba, Iran, Russia
to name a few. We must never
forget that the early days of Nazi
Germany began with book bann-
ing and censorship. Then it was a
gradual process of Jews and other
minorities losing their rights and
eventually their lives.
While it is true our rights are
protected under the U.S. Con-
stitution, even this is under at-
tack. Bob Simonds, head of the
National Association of Christian
Educators, claims the idea that
church and state are separate is
"a complete fabrication by the
ACLU ..." Any attempt to void
the separation of church and state
would mean an end to the
religious freedom we have in this
country. This is a situation that
cannot be ignored.

Israel Votes Against Condemnation
of U.S. Raid On Libya
(JTA) The General
Assembly condemned last
Thursday the United States
for its aerial raid on Libya last
April. Israel joined the U.S.
and other Western countries
in voting against the anti-
American resolution. The vote
was 79-28 with 32 abstentions.
Ambassador Yohanan Bein
of the Israel UN Mission,
justified the American attack
on Libya as a war against in-
ternational terrorism. "The
free world will not surrender
to intimidation and ter-
rorism Bein told the General
Assembly. He vowed that
Israel will continue to fight in-
ternational terrorism and will
respond mainly against the
"planners and organizers" of
world terror, such as Libya.
The Israeli diplomat disclos-
ed that in February 1986,
about a dozen terrorist groups
from around the world met in
Tripoli, Libya, for a special
"congress" on international
terrorism. The "congress,"
Bein asserted, nominated a
nine-member committee to im-
prove the international net-
work of terrorist organizations
with Libya, Iran and Syria ser-
ving as a "war cabinet" for
that purpose.
"They declared war against
the West, against democracy
against all those who would
not bend to intimidations and
threats," the Israeli envoy
said. He compared interna-
tional terrorism to organized
crime, calling the Libyan
leader, Muammar Khadafy,
"the godfather of interna-
tional terrorism."

her Synagogue's Board for 25
years and is a member of the
Board of Directors of the Nor-

A graduate of City College,
where she studied education and
accounting, the new president has

Jewish Book Month has become
a widely observed date on the
calendar of North American
Jewry, with Jewish Community
Centers, synagogues, Jewish
schools, libraries, organizations
and entire Jewish communities
staging Jewish Book Fairs and
other special book programs to
focus attention on the latest books
of Jewish interest.
The history of Jewish Book
Month goes back to 1925, when a
Boston librarian named Fanny
Goldstein set up a Judaica exhibit
to mark the first Jewish Book
Week. It later gained national ac-
ceptance and popularity. By 1943,
when the Jewish Book Council
was formally organized, the week-
long event had expanded into
Jewish Book Month. This year,
Jewish Book Month will be pro-
claimed as an official observance
in the State of New York.
The JWB Jewish Book Council
confers the annual National
Jewish Book Awards and library
citations, publishes a trilingual
Jewish Book Annual, syndicates
Jewish Books in Review, publishes
Jewish Book World, participates
in international, national, and
regional book fairs, conducts
Jewish book conferences, issues a
wide variety of annotated Jewish
bibliographies, and provides con-
sultation on setting up Jewish
Book Fairs.

Lazarus, the American Jewish
poet whose sonnet is embossed on
the pedestal of the Statue of
Liberty, was late in discovering
her Jewishness, an article in
Volume 44 of Jewish Book An-
nual, just published by the JWB
Jewish Book Council, asserts.
Titled "From Parnassus to
Mount Zion: The Journey of Em-
ma Lazarus," the article is
authored by Dr. Carole S.
Ressner, assistant professor of
comparative literature and Judaic
Studies, State University of New
York at Stony Brook.
Emma was born into a family
that was aware of its Jewishness,
but not observant. Secular educa-
tion was emphasized over Jewish
education. Emma was drawn to
Hellenism, Ressner writes, and
her first volume of poems reflects
this pull.
(That is the reason for the "Par-
nassus" in the title of Ressner's
article. Parnassus was the moun-
tain in Greece sacred to Apollo
and the Muses in ancient times.
Parnassus was also the title of the
anthology of poems that Ralph
Waldo Emerson, Emma's friend
and advisor, had compiled without
including anything by Emma,
making her bitter.)
It was two related events that
fired Emma's poetic and social im-
agination: 1) the Russian pogroms
of 1879 and the concomitant in-
famous May Laws of 1881, and 2)
the resultant mass emigration of
Eastern European Jews to the
Emma began to study the
Hebrew language, read Graetz's
History of the Jews, read Hebrew
literature, and, Ressner writes,
"perhaps most important," ab-
sorbed George Eliot's novel
Daniel Deronda in which the
great English woman made an im-
passioned and reasoned defense of
the need for a Jewish homeland in
Contained in "The New Col-
ossus" is the key to the extraor-
dinary history of Emma Lazarus'
personal journey of self-discovery.
In the first eight lines of the son-
net which begins, "Not like the
brazen giant of Greek fame ..."
lies a rejection of the Hellenism
which had attracted her and in its
place, Ressner writes, "an asser-
tion of the power of womanhood,
the comfort of motherhood, the
Hebrew prophetic values of com-
passion and consolation."
Herman Wouk's Inside, Outside
is seen as a liturgical novel by Dr.
Joseph Lowin in another Jewish
Book Annual article.
In "Herman Wouk and the
Liturgical Novel," Dr. Lowin,
Hadassah's national director of
adult Jewish education, asserts
that Wouk's latest novel is "in a
Jewish key, in the key of Jewish
tradition, Jewish wisdom, Jewish
study, arid Jewish practice."
Throughout his analysis, Dr.
Lowin demonstrates how the
motivations of the narrator in In-
side, Outside, Israel David
Goodkind, have a liturgical basis
that liturgy is central to his text
because it was central to his life as
a boy growing up in New York.
Dr. Lowin writes that Wouk
"has also taken the liberty to por-
tray the Jews in an unfavorable
light." He concludes, however,
that "Herman Wouk has given
readers a truthful account of the
Jewish experience in America...
by drumming Jewish awareness
into his readers, he has given us
the best thing he has."
For the first time, some
neglected writings of the popular
Yiddish writer Sholem Aleichem
are analyzed in "Sholem
Aleykem's First Feuilleton
Series" by Dr. Leonard Prager,
who teaches literature at the
University of Haifa.
The neglected works are The In-
tercepted Letters stolen cor-
respondence between Reb
Leybele "fun yener velt" (from
the next world) and Reb Velvele of
Prager writes that these
feuilletons (light, popular pieces of
writing) "are an experimental
workshop where we find the
monolog, the dramatic sketch, the
secular sermon, the short story,
the gossip column, the epistolary
genre and more."
There are 10 letters in all. The
first letter exploits the mechanism
of the corpse observing his own
funeral; the second is based on the
comic formula of the man who
tells the truth and is disbelieved.
The letters contain social satire,
reveal the young writer's commit-
ment to the Zionist ideal, moralize
on the theme of hypocrisy, and
poke fun at Hasidism.
Prager concludes that at the

Refusenik Dead At 68
For reservations please
973-0922 by Dec. 12.
Haim Elbert, a 68-year-old
Red Army veteran who with
his family had been denied exit
visas since they first applied in
1976, died in Kiev Nov. 8, the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry reported here.
His death came two days
after he learned that the latest
visa application for himself, his
wife, their sons and their
families had been rejected, the
NCSJ reported. Elbert suf-
fered heart attacks and a
stroke in recent years.
According to the NCSJ, his
son, Lev Elbert, a former
Prisoner of Conscience, was
recently summoned to OVIR,
the visa office, expecting the
application to be granted. In-
stead, he was told it was
denied on grounds that he had
failed to disclose "a former
marriage" in a previous ap-
plication. The charge was
false, the NCSJ said.
Haim Elbert was a graduate
of the Stalingrad Military
Academy and served as a com-
pany commander in the
Caucusus during World War
II. He was captured in 1942
and escaped from a German
prisoner of war camp after two
unsuccessful attempts. He sur-
vived in the POW camp by con-
cealing his identity as a Jew.

Historic 'Week of Dedications' In Jerusalem Hosted By
Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
More than 300 leaders of the
world Jewish community conven-
ed in Jerusalem this month for an
historic "Week of Dedications"
sponsored by Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of
Religion and marking the formal
opening of the greatly expanded
Jerusalem campus of HUC-JIR.
Gathered from throughout the
United States and around the
globe were members of the col-
lege's Board of Governors and
Boards of Overseers, members of
The Associates of HUC-JIR, and
delegates of the World Union for
Progressive Judaism.
"This is the most significant
single development in the history
of the college in our generation,'
Dr. Alfred Gottschalk, President,
stated. "The success of our
building program in Israel will be
paralleled by a programmatic ex-
pansion that will enlarge the col-
lege's educational outreach into
the Jewish world."
During the Week of Dedica-
tions, the college opened the Skir-
ball Center for Biblical and Ar-
chaeological Research, which will
house the Nelson Glueck School of
Biblical Archaeology, the Skirball
Museum, and a new classroom
facility; the World Union for Pro-
rive Judaism dedicated the
eit Shmuel Youth
Center/Hostel. In addition, con-
struction is continuing on the S.
Zalman and Ayala Abramov
Library which will house a
repository of literary treasures to
be shared with both the college s
constituency and the scholarly
community of Israel.
In addition to the dedication
ceremonies, other highlights in-
cluded an Academic Convocation
at which Dr. Gottschalk conferred
the honorary degree of Doctor of
Humane Letters upon Mayor Ted-
dy Kollek of Jerusalem and at
which Deputy Prime Minister
Shimon Peres delivered a major
address on "Tolerance and Coex-
istence in Israel"; a symposium on
"Religion and State in Israel"
featuring leading members of the
Israeli Knesset and other govern-
ment officials; the ordination of
Rabbi Uri Regev, the fifth Israeli
to complete the college's special
rabbinic program designed to pro-
duce native-born, Progressive
spiritual leaders for Israel; and a
festive banquet at the Knesset
during which Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir delivered the Prin-
cipal address.

tion's oldest center of higher
