The 1986 Israeli Chassidic Festival
18th 'Chai' Anniversary
The Jewish Community Center
is proud to announce the for-
thcoming visit of the 1986 Israeli
Chassidic Festival. This spec-
tacular musical production of
song, dance, and music, perform-
ed by top Israeli stars, is coming
to The Tampa Theatre on Dec. 18
for one performance only!
Eighteen years have passed
since the first curtain went up
revealing what was destined to be
the greatest annual event in the
musical world of Israel "The
Israeli Chassidic Festival."
Thanks to the support of au-
diences all over the world, this
year the Festival celebrates its
"Chai"(*) anniversary 18 years
of song, dance and music over
1,100 performances throughout
the world 18 LP albums over
180 songs, most of which have
made the Israeli Hit Parade, and

Young Adult Division Hosts
Soviet Jewry Program
Sunday, Dec. 28, the Young
Adult Division of the Tampa
Jewish Federation will host, in
cooperation with the Jewish Com-
munity Center's annual Chan-
nukah celebration, a program
focusing on the plight of Soviet
Jews. According to co-chairmen
Andy Hirsch and Karen
Schulman, "it is significant that
our community participates in the
joyous festivities of Channukah,
while recognizing that their Rus-
sian counterparts are denied this
privilege." While we are laughing
and celebrating the third night of
Channukah, thousands of Jews re-
main in the Soviet Union. These
"victims" are unable to receive
exit visas and they are refused the
right to practice freely their
culture and religion.
In keeping with the Soviet prac-
tices, Rabbi Birnholz will dedicate
an "underground synagogue" in
the Soviet Union. Students from
the Hillel Day School will sing
songs and read their winning
essays, describing what Chan-
nukah means to them. Bobby
Brown, who is a Shaliach for the
Jewish Agency in New York will
recount his experiences in the
Soviet Union. Following Brown's
presentation, there will be a silent
vigil and candlelighting ceremony.
Persons interested in obtaining
more information about this pro-
gram should contact the Tampa
Jewish Federation at 875-1618.

Two Former Israel Military Chiefs
Assess Arms To Iran Deal
former chiefs of Israel's
military intelligence see ad-
vantages for Israel in the supp-
ly of arms to Iran but differ
over whether Israel would
benefit if Iran won its six-year-
old war with Iraq.
Res. Gen. Aharon Yariv,
Director of the Yaffee In-
stitute for Strategic Studies at
Tel Aviv University, believes
Israel's interests would be
served if the war continues, or
at least ends in a stalemate
because there can be no
Eastern front against Israel as
long as the war continues.
But Res. Maj. Gen.
Yehoshua Saguy, a member of
Yaffee Institute staff, said
President Reagan was right to
supply arms to Iran, even
though he failed in trying to
explain it to the American peo-
ple. Yariv and Saguy recently
participated in a seminar on
the Gulf war.
Israel has an interest in an Ira-
nian victory in the Persian
Gulf war because there is at
least a chance it would then re-
main in the Western orbit.
Yariv, however, said a victory
for the regime of the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini would be
"a disaster" for Israel.
Yariv said a good case could
be made for Israel to supply
enough arms to Iran to pre-
vent an Iraqi victory, but not
enough to ensure a victory for
Iran. He admitted he did not
know what had happened with
respect to arms for Iran.
Reagan got into deep trouble
with his supporters and adver-
saries alike when he conceded
that the White House had been
secretly sending arms to Iran
in hope of gaining ground with
"moderate" elements who
might succeed Khomeini.
HE ALSO admitted, after
denying it in a nationally
televised press conference
recently, that a "third coun-
try" had been involved in the
clandestine operation. Reagan
did not name the country but
White House aides had said
earlier in the week that it was
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
refused to confirm or deny
this. He has said that it "has
never been, and is still not,
Israel's policy to disclose
anything about arms sales to
other countries." He also said
he had no sympathy for either
side in the Gulf war.
Reagan insisted the supply
of arms to Iran was not a quid
pro quo for the release of
American hostages held by
Lro-Iranian groups in
ebanon, but admitted that
White House emissaries has
mentioned the hostages to
their Iranian contacts.
the President did or did not
say something, the point is
hostages were freed. And from
our point of view, if the U.S.
approaches us for help and if
and I don't say it happened
this way someone, an Israeli
or a Jew, has an idea how to
get them freed, all this I can
understand. I can also see the

sound to old Biblical verses.
The first Israeli Chassidic
Festival, in 1969, was intended to
be a one-time contest for the best
music set to Biblical verses.
However, due to the overwhelm-
ing response, the course of history
changed for this musical event.
Since then, composers from all
over the world have entered their
works in this spirited competition.
Top Israeli performers present
these songs to the people of Israel
who select the winners.
The Israeli Chassidic Festival is
one of the most successful of pro-
ductions in existence today. Tins
much anticipated musicale prides
itself in being an annual event in
so many cities around the world -
not many companies can ignite
this degree of popularity and
On previous American tours,
the Festival was described by the
New York Post as "something of a
miracle." The New York Times
wrote "These Israeli melodies
have an infectiously open spirit as
well as the foot-tapping rhythmic
hit so characteristic of the coun-
try's many dances."
This year's Festival presents
two hours of thoroughly enjoyable
entertainment for the entire fami-
ly, performed by top Israeli enter-
tainers, outstandingly arranged
and choreographed in the spirit of
this special 18th anniversary pro-
duction a nostalgic show which
brings back 18 years of memories.

cient verses, make sure you're

He explained that even' if
Iran does not win the Gulf war,
and whether or not it con-
tinues to have differences with
its neighbors, "we have an in-
terest, in the long term, in
relations with Iran/'
Yariv said he understood
"that we sell arms to Iran
when she is in a difficult situa-
tion, and since we have no in-
terest in an Iraqi victory.
What I do not understand
and I hope this did not happen
would be the sale of arms to
Iran in quantity and kind
which could result in victory
for the Khomeini regime,
because this could be a disaster
for us. We are not talking
about monetary gain but about
helping a great friend and
preparing the ground for rela-
tions (with Iran) without giv-
ing Khomeini victory."
HE SAID Israel had lessons
to learn from the Gulf war,
particularly Iraq's use of
chemical weapons, which have
not been used since World War
I, except by the late Egyptian
President, Gamal Abdel
Nasser in his military adven-
ture in Yemen in the 1960's.

Anti-Semitic Propaganda
Prevalent In Argentina
Despite Argentina's shift to a
democratic regime, anti-
Semitic propaganda is still
prevalent and used by rightw-
mg elements as a tool to under-
mine the new government, ac-
cording to a report released by
the American Jewish
Jacob Kavadloff, author of
the report titled "The Jewish
Invasion A Case History of
Anti-Semitic Propaganda in
Argentina," states that the
Argentine media have
disseminated many "bizarre
falsehoods" about alleged in-
ternational Jewish con-
spiracies against Argentina.
Kavadloff, who is Director of
South American Affairs of
AJC's International Relations
Department, cited a recent ex-
ample involving a supposed
"Jewish plot" to colonize
Patagonia, Argentina's
sparsely populated southern
region. He chronicles the
following events:
LAST JANUARY and again
in March, a major Argentine
news agency distributed a
story saying that disguised
Israeli explorers were survey-
ing a region of Patagonia for
the settlement of 10,000
Israeli and 30,000 Soviet Jews
over the next 10 years. The
story alleged that this project
was approved by the national
and local governments.
Several influential papers,
some well-known vehicles for
rightwing anti-Semitic pro-
paganda, publicized the story,
using headlines such as
"Patagonia the New
Representatives of the
Delegation de Asociaciones
Israehtas de la Argentina
(DAIA), the umbrella
organization of Argentina's
Jewish community, were
unable to uncover any informa-
tion regarding the source or
the validity of the original
President of the DAIA called
the story "one of the many lies
spread by certain organiza-
tions with clearly anti-Semitic
leanings and a general anti-
democratic stance." Last
August, the DAIA published a
46-page booklet titled: "The
Jewish Invasion A New
Anti-Semitic Fraud."

Israel High tech: In Fashion A 'Shocking' Legal Ruling

exports reaching $350 million,
and total sales in excess of $1

since 1977. Prof. Alon is
recognized in both academic
and research circles as a
motivating force in the ongo-

passes large, vertically in-

as Polgat (whose exports in
1985 were just under $100
million), medium-sized con-
cerns, and smaller, family-
owned and operated firms. All
aspects of the trade are
Advanced technology is of
primary importance, especially
in the selection and manipula-
tion of shade and color. Today,
one can introduce a color sam-
ple into a computer fabric,
thread, or even a piece of
paper will do and the system
will immediately deliver the
formula for an exact duplica-
tion of the color. It also sup-
represented, from the growing plies the variations in formula
and harvesting of cotton and
the processing of raw fibers to
the spinning of threads and
yarns, dying and weaving, and
the final stages of producing
textiles and apparel.
Among the first industries to
be established in Israel, the
textile enterprises were con-
ceived to absorb the flood of
new immigrants into the work
force. The principles of cut-
ting, sewing and assembling
were easily communicated via
demonstration, thus allowing
thousands of immigrants from
diverse backgrounds to be
smoothly integrated into ex-
isting factories with little need
for in-depth language and
technical training.
In the 1950's and 1960's,
textiles remained a small in-
dustry totally dependent on
local cotton for spinning and
weaving. Its primary functions
were to provide jobs and
secondarily, supply the modest
demands of a not very fashion-
conscious market.
By the end of the 1960's,
however, the reality of com-
petition and the potential for
developing a genuine local in-
dustry became clear.
Economically, Israel could not
compete with the textile in-
dustries of the Far East, with
their large pool of cheap labor
and mass-production techni-
ques. Instead, Israel's textile
sector underwent a dramatic
change, concentrating on the
design and implementation of
technologically advanced
equipment, and emphasizing
quality rather than quantity.
After the 1967 war, the in-
dustry became modern and
sophisticated, using high
technology, high-level design
and quality to compete on the
world market.
Among those Technion-
trained scientists who have
had an enormous impact on
Israel's textile and fashion in-
dustries is Professor Gad
Alon, President of the Shenkar
College of Textile Technology
and Fashion in Ramat Gan
needed for different illumina-
tions or materials. It can even
interface with a computer
thousands of miles away. A
color sample from across the
world may be fed into the com-
puter for analysis and a for-
mula obtained without the
sample leaving the laboratory.
Technology is evident in all
three branches of the textile
industry: home textiles, in-
dustrial textiles, and the
fashion industry itself. In addi-

durable, waterproof, heat-
cold-, and fade-resistant, and
easy to care for. In the ongoing
search for the perfect fabric,
professional textile chemists
are pivotal.
Concomitantly, there is a
growing market in Israel for
industrial textiles like those
used in transportation, the
military, and civil engineering.
Finally, the geotextiles field
addresses the increasing con-
cern for preserving land and
water, and the frequent need
for strength and durability
without added weight, such as
reinforcing runways and
roads. Medical textiles have
been critical to such successful
medical innovations as ar-
tificial blood vessels, heart
valves, and artificial tissue for
cosmetic reconstruction. And
disposable textiles have reduc-
ed infection rates in hospitals.
In the rapidly changing
world of fashion and textiles,
quixotic art blends with
pragmatic technology with
surprising ease. The industry's
mercurial nature has helped it
gain a foothold in Israel
tion to design and color con- where high tech is always in

Austria Parliamentary
Election Winners
Freedom Party, a coalition of
rightwingers and liberals,
emerged the clear winner in
last month's Parliamentary
elections, under the. leadership
of a charismatic young na-
tionalist, Joerg Haider.
Haider, who took over the
reins of the party from
Norbert Steger only three
months ago, raised concern in
Jewish and liberal circles for
the unabashed chauvinism of
his campaign. While he
carefully avoided overt neo-
Nazi or anti-Semitic
statements, he drew the
loudest cheers when he said he
opposed the "downgrading" of
the wartime generation.
Observers believe it was not by
chance that he chose Braunau,

seats, giving it a bloc of 19 in
the 183-member Nationalrat

were at the expense of the
Socialist Party, headed by
Chancellor Franz Vranitzky,
which is expected to have 80
seats in the new legislature,
down from 90; and the conser-
vative People's Party of Presi-
dent Kurt Waldheim which is
headed by Alois Mock, down to
76 seats from 81.
The ecology-oriented Green
Party won eight seats. It will

munist Party was ousted by
the voters in 1959.

It was Haider's ascension to
power that caused Vranitzky
to break the coalition and call
for early elections. Normally,
the elections would have been
held next spring. Vranitzky
maintained mat by elevating
Haider to leadership, the
Freedom Party shifted too far
to the right to continue as a
partner of the Socialists.
The People's Party would
have surpassed the Socialists
had it not been for the votes
siphoned off by Haider. It saw
the danger early on and waged
a campaign in which resent-
ment against Israel and
against Jewish organizations
that exposed Waldheim'aNazi
past during last summer's
Presidential campaign were a
strong element.
Austrians are rankled by
Israel's refusal to appoint a
new Ambassador to Vienna to
replace Michael Elizur who
retired several months ago.
Rabbi David Saperstein, Co-
Director of Reform Judaism's
Religious Action Center here,
has called "shocking" the
justification by a federal judge
of a creche on Chicago's City
Hall grounds on the basis that
the United States is a Chris-
tian country.
"The language of the deci-
sion" on Nov. 5 by U.S.
District Court Judge Frank
McGarr in Chicago "is even
more outrageous than the deci-
sion itself, Saperstein said.
McGarr rejected a challenge
by five national Jewish
organizations and a group of
individuals to the presence of a
creche, and a menorah spon-
sored by the Lubavitch move-
ment on public grounds.
McGarr's decision is expected
to be appealed before a higher
McGarr said: "The truth is
that America's origins are
Christian with the result that
some of our fondest traditions
are Christian, and that our
founding fathers intended and
achieved full religious freedom
for all within the context of a
Christian nation in the First
Amendment as it was adopted,
rather than as we have rewrit-
ten it."
Saperstein charged that the
McGarr decision violates 200
years of Constitutional doc-
trine. He said McGarr used his
"rationale not only to justify
the creche, "but to call as well
for the state to participate
freely in religious celebration
of Christmas.'
But, he noted, "in order to
protect himself under the cur-
rent constitutional standard
set out by the Supreme Court
in the Lynch v. Donnelly
(Pawtucket Creche) case, the
judge also determined that the
creche has become a symbol of
secular national holiday devoid
of its religious context."
that "the uniqueness of the
American vision was that
freedom of religion would be
protected by separating
church and state and that all
religions would be treated
equally. It was in this context
that religious life in America
has flourished with un-
precedented freedom
throughout our history."

Barnett 1986
Award Winner
NEW YORK Douglas B.
Cohn, Tampa Jewish Federation
president has announced that
Leslie J. Barnett, of Tampa, has
received the 1986 Endowment
Achievement Award of the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations (CJF).
CJF is the national resource and
policy-making body for the Jewish
Federations of North America.
The Endowment Achievement
Award is presented annually to
those who have, through their
leadership, vision, and dedication,
helped in the successful growth of
their Federation's endowment
"This award is testimony to the
recipients' dedication and concern
for the future of their community
and Jewry worldwide," stated
Neal Kurn, National Chairman of
the Endowment Steering Com-
mittee of CJF.
"This year, nationwide, we ex-
pect Federation endowment funds
to reach a value of almost 1.5
billion dollars. The creative and
outstanding leadership of the En-
dowment Achievement Award
recipients have helped make this
Barnett was named by the Tam-
pa Jewish Federation as the 1986
recipient of the Endowment
Achievement Award. Cohn noted
that his efforts on behalf of the
Federation's endowment fund
were particularly noteworthy
because of the progress the TOP
Jewish Foundation has made dur-
ing the past year.
Endowment funds provide
resources for the future of our
Jewish communities for in-
novative and important programs
and to. meet emergencies. These
funds serve as an additional
resource for Federations to use in
the delivery of communal services
now and in generations to come.
The Council of Jewish Federa-
tions, which makes this award, is
the national organization
representing 200 Jewish Federa-
tions and serves a Jewish popula-
tion of more than 5.7 million in the
United States and Canada.
Established in 1932, CJF helps
strengthen the programs of
Jewish Federations by developing
techniques to meet changing
needs, providing an exchange of
successful community ex-
periences, establishing guidelines
for fundraising and operations
and engaging in joint planning
and action on common purpose.

Children's Literature Has Key
Role In Attitude Formation
NEW YORK, N.Y. Children's
attitudes are formed by the books
they read, Dr. Blanche Serwer
Bernstein, clinical psychologist
and author, told her audience at
the Third Jewish Children's Book
Conference, which the JWB
Jewish Book Council, with the
Commission on Synagogue Rela-
tions of UJA Federation of New
York, conducted at the UJA-
Federation Building.
"There is an intense interaction
between society and books and
books and the child," Dr. Bersn-
tein, who is on the staff of Payne-
Whitney Psychiatric Clinic, said.
"Books exert a powerful influence
in counteracting prejudices and
creating positve lifestyles."
Asserting that "The Middle
East can become a powder keg,
which can explode into World War
III," Dr. Bernstein said that
Arab-Jewish relationships are one
area where books could bring
children to a better understanding
and appreciation of one another.
Another fertile area for children's
books is the Holocaust, she said.
Approximately 120 authors,
editors, illustrators, publishers,
librarians, literary agents,
educators, and book retailers at-
tended the children's book
Panelists discussed the impor-
tance of literary and artistic
freedom, the difference between a
Jewish writer and a writer who
happens to be Jewish, the
characteristics of children and
Tampa Ballet

Tampa Ballet will present
"Cinderella" at Tampa's David
Falk Theatre, 428 West Kennedy
Blvd., on Dec. 26, 27, 28, 29 and
30 at 8 p.m. and on Dec. 26, 28,
and 30 at 2 p.m. Tickets to see the
familiar fairy-tale ballet about the
lovely orphaned step-child who is

children and senior citizens are
half price and special group rates
are available. For additional ticket
information, please call the
Centertickets at NCNB Box Of-
fice at (813) 221-3223 or call the

"Cinderella," danced to Sergei
Prokofiev's bitte t eet score, is a
three act classical ballet which will
feature Tampa Ballet's principal
dancers Patricia Renzetti and
Elizabeth Nesi alternating in the
roles of Cinderella and the Fairy
Godmother. Osama Maksoud, a
special guest artist from Egypt,
will perform the role of Prince
Charming. Margie-Nan Elias and
Patricia Deasy will be seen as the
Ugly Stepsisters and Patrick
Doyle will be their wicked
Tampa Ballet's production of
"Cinderella," choreographed by
the company's artistic director,
Martin Fredmann, is inspired by
the original 1946 Russian produc-
tion by Rostislav Zakharov. Fred-
mann's version is a streamlined
rendering of the popular story
that both sustains the poetic line
of the tale and explores the bit-
tersweet atmosphere evident in
Prokofiev's score. According to
Fredmann, his choreographic ap-
proach gives "precedence to the
fulfillment of Cinderella's dream,
with a romantic and dramatic con-
tinuity that fulfills the audience's
childhood dreams as well."
childhood, the technique of mak-
ing literature universal by being
specific, the need for presenting
American Jewish life honestly in
literature for children, changes in
marketing and retailing children's
books, and the functions of editors
and agents.
Paula G. Gottlieb, director,
JWB Jewish Book Council, said
the goal of the conference was to
explore the concept of Jewish
children's books in making con-
nections connections between
children's books professionals, the
child and parents, other children,
and the world around the child.
Dr. Marcia W. Posner, library
consultant, Federation of Jewish
Philanthropies of New York,
defined a Jewish children's book
as one dealing with the whole
scheme of Jewish experiences
the Jewish family, the Mitzvot
(Commandments), pleasures in
sharing joys and sorrows, pro-
blems facing Jews, and the like.
Program participants were:
Communicating: Carol Snyder,
award-winning author of the "Ike
and Mama" series; Steven

American Hebrew Congregations;
Amy Schwartz, award-winning

The 55th General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations
was the setting for a live satellite broadcast from Israel which per-
mitted Natan Sharansky to address Assembly delegates. Par-
ticipating in the special session were Vice President George Bush,
who voiced strong support for the State of Israel and pledged con-
tinued Administration effors to forge an agreement with the
Soviet Union to permit emigration of Soviet Jews. The Vice Presi-

Israel To Submit Taba
Dispute To Arbitration
Cabinet has formally ratified
an agreement with Egypt to
submit the Taba border
dispute to international ar-
bitration. It rejected pre-
conditions proposed by
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry Ariel Sharon.
The arbitration panel, con-
sisting of three international
jurists and one representative
each from Israel and Egypt,
will convene in Geneva later
this month. The agreement
was reached last September to
resolve the issue by arbitra-
tion, favored by Egypt, in-
stead of conciliation, preferred
by Israel. It followed more
than a year of on-again-off-
again negotiations that failed
to settle the dispute.
The Israeli-Egyptian peace
treaty of 1979 provides for
either arbitration or concilia-
tion in cases where the two
countries cannot reach
bilateral agreement. Sharon

Vanunu Facing Lengthy Trial
Mordechai Vanunu, accused of
passing State secrets concern-
ing Israel's alleged nuclear
weapons arsenal to a foreign
newspaper, will remain in
custody pending a hearing on
the Prosecutor's request that
he be held in jail until the end
of his trial, Jerusalem District
Court Judge Zvi Tal ruled last
Sunday. No date has been set
for the hearing.
Tal also rejected a request
by Vanunu's attorney, Amnon
Zichroni, to hold the hearing in
public. The trial, when it
begins, is expected to last
about six weeks. Seven
witnesses will appear for the
prosecution and five or six for
the defendant, according to
Zichroni. Most of them will be
from abraod and probably will
testify as character witnesses.
Vanunu, a former technician
at the Dimona nuclear facility,
is accused of giving a British
newspaper information alleg-
ing that Israel has been
manufacturing nuclear
weapons for 20 years and now
possesses a sufficient number
to rank sixth among the
world's nuclear powers.
The charge sheet against
him was formally submitted to
the District Court and it ap-
pears less than likely that
Vanunu will face the death
The charges cite two sec-
tions of the Criminal Code.
Section 99 assistance to an
enemy in time of war pro-
vides the death penalty or life
imprisonment for "a person
who, with intent to assist an
enemy in war against Israel,
commits an act calculated so to
assist him."
But a separate section of the
Penal Code makes clear that a
death sentence can be imposed
only in time of active
hostilities. Legal authorities
believe that the prosecution
will not request the death
sentence because, while Israel
remains technically at war
with several Arab states, there
is no actual warfare in
The charge sheet also cited
Section 113 of the Penal Code
which provides life imprison-
ment for "a person who
delivers any secret informa-
tion without being authorized
to do so and with intent to im-
pair the security of the State.
It provides up to 15 years' im-
prisonment for anyone who
"obtains, collects, prepares
records or holds possession of
any secret information ... and
thereby intends to impair the
security of the State.
Vanunu was present in court
last Sunday under heavy guard
by police and security agents.
Scores of reporters and media
photographers were on the
scene as he was driven to and
from the courthouse in a
civilian pick-up truck. None
was able to get near him.
Unrest Continues
Anti-Arab violence and van-
dalism continued in the Old Ci-
ty. A molotov cocktail was
thrown at an Arab-occupied
house in the moslem quarter,
causing slight damage but no
casualties. Several more blaz-
ing gasoline bombs were found
in the neighborhood, near the
Shuvu Banim yeshiva where
stabbing victim Eliahu Amdi
had been a student.

Gondar Revisited
The future of Ethiopian Jewry
its survival as a community, the
"Operation Moses" rescue to
Israel and absorption into Israeli
society has been long discussed
and debated in the Jewish
I visited the Ethiopian Jews in
Gondar province in 1982. This
past June, I went back to Gondar
to revisit this time the rem-
nants of that community some 18
months after thousands had
escaped government and religious
oppression by making their way to
Sudan and the airlift to Israel.
On my first visit, as the Anti-
Defamation League's represen-
tative in a National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory Coun-
cil delegation, we were unable to
obtain official permission to enter
any Jewish village. Arranging a
two-day excursion into the Simien
National Park, we left the main
road and walked to the village of
Benkar. There we learned of the
problems the Jews faced, of
hatred directed at them by their
Christian neighbors, the dif-
ficulties in trying to teach Hebrew
and the community's desire to
leave for Israel.
This year the situation was dif-
ferent. The war continues. Ter-
ritory north of Gondar city is clos-
ed to travelers under tight securi-
ty but Jewish groups continue to
tour Ethiopia, bringing desired
foreign exchange. In return, now
many are allowed to visit the re-
maining Jews.
I returned as part of a mission
organized by the North American
Conference on Ethiopian Jewry
with 17 participants from the
United States and Israel. We flew
from Tel Aviv to Cairo to Addis
Ababa and finally boarded a small
aircraft to Gondar. Seeing the
lush, green countryside and the
flourishing crops, it was hard to
imagine the drought that had
scourged the land.
Gondar seemed nearly the same
except for increased military
After checking into the hotel, in-

congruous in its elegance, we
boarded the bus for the ride to the
Jewish village of Wolleka. Since it
was in the security zone north of
the city limits, we had to show a
travel permit to soldiers guarding
the road.
Children ran quickly to an-
nounce our arrival. Wolleka is the
only Jewish village with a tourist-
oriented commercial enterprise,
originated by ORT, selling black
clay figures. The project is being
furthered by the government with
the recent opening of a factory-
We went directly to the
synagogue, painted white, a
Mogen David on the roof. We
were met by the Kess (the spiritual
leader) who conversed in Hebrew.
Children sang Hebrew songs for
us. Considering the experience
this village has had as a showpiece
for groups like ours, I mentally
questioned how genuine this
display was. Still, I appreciated
the attempt to maintain some
Hebrew and Jewish identification.
People thrust photographs at us
of family members in Israel. Some
held letters yellowed and torn at
the edges. The women cried when
they pointed out their children in
the photos, but seemed proud of
their clean, modern clothing and
their healthy look. This was in
stark contrast to the children still
in Wolleka, dressed in rags. We
took pictures, along with names
and addresses, to give to their
families in Israel. We saw very
few males between the ages of
16-30, the age group most able to
make the trek to Sudan and the
"operation Moses" airlift.
Later, we drove to Aba An-
tonius, a small village with some
200 people, all Jews. Living condi-
tions were extremely poor and the
people sickly and malnourished,
though far healthier than the hor-
rible scenes of famine-induced

Missouri accompanying us, notic-
ed that the entire village was suf-
fering from conjunctivitis, the eye
disease commonly known as "pink
The synagogue, as in Wolleka,
was white and clean. There was a
Sefer Torah and some prayer
books. The old men spoke almost
no Hebrew but when they learned
that I had come from Jerusalem,
their eyes lit up and they smiled
warmly. One tapped his leg over
and over again. Finally it came
through: he would walk to
Jerusalem if he could. Again, we
were swarmed by people with
photographs and letters from
relatives in Israel. Here the
children knew no Hebrew; some
knew English.
We learned that many people
had tried to leave for Sudan, giv-
ing up land and livestock. Turned
back at the border, they returned
only to find their possessions in
the hands of Christian neighbors.
Again, there were no young
men. Some said they were in Gon-
dar studying. The Kess, however,
said many had left for Israel.
The next morning we went back
to Wolleka for Shabbat. The
synagogue was filled within
minutes, men to the right, women
to the left. Children in between.
The service was in Hebrew but
with Ethiopian melodies and pro-
nunciation. The children joined in
the prayers and many of the songs
all in Hebrew. We counted
about 250 people but only about
20 adult males, most over the age
of 45.
While singing Hebrew songs
with some of the children out-
doors, suddenly we were inter-
rupted by three strangers in
western clothing. A 14-year-old
boy whispered to me in English,
"Enough." We carried on in-
nocuous conversation as they ap-
proached. One said that he was
from the Education Administra-
tion in Addis Ababa. Later, the
same boy told me he was "securi-
ty." They stayed for 20 minutes,
looking around the synagogue
windows and watching our
We visited the family of Matti
Fanta, a man who appeared in
ADL's film, "Operation Moses." I
recognized him from the pictures
his grandmother and sister
displayed. The tukel (house) was
neat, but filled with smoke from
the Shabbat fire. There was a
separate corner with one raised
bed, a vat for Wot, the Ethiopian
spicy goulash, and anjera, the
pancake-like sour bread eaten dai-
ly. I was offered special Shabbat
Two windows offered little ven-
tilation. Floors and walls were
mud, the roof thatched straw.
Chickens claimed much of the
floor space. Earthen benches
were covered with skins. The only
decoration, outside of beautiful
utilitarian baskets and
photographs of family in Israel,
were two matzoh boxes. (I would
see those same decorations in
other villages.)
After lunch, we returned to Aba
Antonius to minister some
elementary eye treatment to the
entire village. The villagers were
helpful in dividing the population.
Some men assisted, holding thel
children's arms, calming the]
mothers and translating. My only
sentence in Amharic: "Eye nan-\
chehu b'janchu a tinku" or
"Don't put your fingers in your
eyes!" The children were frighten-;
ed, soothed somewhat by the can-
dv we offered.

Operation Moses" changed the
lives of the Jews remaining in
Ethiopia their physical and
economic well-being, the ways
others deal with them and their
psychological and spiritual
outlook. There was ample
justification for the dramatic and
long-awaited rescue, but we can-
not ignore those left behind.
Some observations:
No family is undivided and
the breakdown of the traditionally
strong family unit affects every
community member. Beyond the
smiling faces and the proud
thrusting of photographs of loved
ones in Israel we saw when we
first arrived, one could also see
despair in their eyes and perhaps
an undercurrent of fear that they
have been forgotten.
There is a dearth of leader-
ship. Kessim and Hebrew
teachers, for the most part, are in
Israel. The community has almost
no spiritual guidance and little
potential for educating the next
generation or sustaining Jewish
identity. Whatever meager learn-
ing goes on is "underground."
Jewish culture in Ethiopia is not
likely to survive another

Cults Still A Danger To Jewish Youth
Jewish membership ranks in Cults
continues at an annual rate of 12
percent among such groups as the
Moonies and Hare Krishnas.
Jewish women were told to be on
guard against Cult activities, now
more dangerous than ever" since
these organizations are operating
today with a low profile."
These words from Rabbi
Maurice Davis, Jewish Communi-
ty Center, White Plains, a
specialist on Cults, to 2,000
delegates who attended the Bien-
nial Convention of the Women's
League for Conservative Judaism
last month.
"Our kids today are lonely and
scared." Rabbi Davis said, "We
must learn, as parents, to com-
municate with them, offering love
and our confidence.
acknowledged that teenagers
don't know how to communicate
with their parents: "a teenager is
something in transition."
Despite this obstacle, Rabbi
Davis, who has personally rescued
187 young people from Cults, ask-
ed those who are parents to
"listen and be patient." "They
desperately are hungry to be
respected and want to be heard.
Above all young people seek ex-
changes and dialogue with their
own parents."
As an example, he cited the
results of a confidential question-
naire where he recently asked
confirmation age youngsters to
write on a piece of paper what
concerned them about their rela-
tionship with parents. Rabbi
Davis said that he was "shocked"
when the first 15 papers all had
written on them, "Do you love
me? Do you trust me? Do you want
me?" He urged members of the
Women's League to continue
their battle against Cults.
Women's League delegates par-
ticipated in a convention session
covering a number of contem-
porary issues cults, drug abuse,
Jewish singles and domestic
violence. The discussions led by
experts were preceded by a mutli-
media visual, "It happens In The
Best of Families" depicting case
studies of a 37-year-old cocaine
addict, an 80-year-old abused
woman, a 32-year-old single
parent and a young adult cult
member who have a common
thread the need for community
action and development of sup-
port groups.
Israel Foreign Minister Shimon Peres was the special guest of
the Council of Jewish Federations at its Overseas Plenary Thurs-
day evening, Nov. IS, during the 55th General Assembly in
Chicago. Seen with Peres at the session are CJF President

The Preparatory School, a
division of Achieve, Inc., opened
its doors in September for the
first time with a total of 10
students in grade levels 6-12.
Located at 3418 Swann Avenue,
The Preparatory School offers an
alternative to the traditional
private school education. The
school director, Helen V.H.
Baines, PhD, a graduate of the
University of Georgia, felt Tampa
needed a school that provided in-
dividual attention and dealt with
the problem of stress. Dr. Baines
saw too many schools that used
too much homework, too much
lecturing, and too much testing as
their primary means of teaching.
The Preparatory School offers a
wide variety of subjects and a stu-
dent may take extra lab work in
basic skills, such as writing,
reading, spelling, and math. The
school day is based on modular
scheduling. This enables the stu-
dent to be in school for the normal
amount of hours, but the periods
are longer making them more
meaningful units of time. At this
time, French is the only language
offered, along with all the tradi-
tional subjects. Art is offered on a
part-time basis.
The two fulltime and five part-
time faculty members cover all
the traditional material while
engaging the students in as many
real life experiences as possible.
The school paper, Culture Club,
and student government are used
as learning tools as well as extra
curricular activities. Computers
play a major part in the learning
experience and the school is very
proud of its ample supply of
Physical education is taught
through the use of the YMCA
facilities. At this time, rowing is
offered as an afterschool sport.
Five students, in conjunction with
the Tampa Rowing Club, are lear-
ning how to crew. The
Preparatory School hopes that
other schools will eventually join
them in making rowing a more
popular sport.
For the student who is unsure of
his or her future goals, the school
store provides hands on ex-
perience in marketing, profit
margins, and inventory. Two
students run the store for a
specified length of time, enabling
every student to learn retailing
first hand. Math skills are
strengthened while the students
learn how hard it is to make a
All students who are college
bound are being prepared to take
national examinations, including
the PSAT and the SAT, with
achievement tests. The school
does follow the same curriculum
standards as accredited schools
and college counseling is provid-
ed. The Preparatory School at
Achieve Inc. is fulfilling the re-
quirements and hopes to receive
accreditation in the required three

of annuity known as the tax-
deferred annuity is one of the
specialized products. It features
not only a good rate of return on
your investment but throws in a
tax advantage in the bargain.
According to reports, their
popularity is growing due to the
diminishing attractiveness of the
IRA under tax reform legislation.
"Unit Trusts" are another pro-
duct that can be found on
brokerage office shelves these
days. They just may be the hottest
investment in town. And there's
good reason. They offer a very
competitive rate of return, and
monthly payouts, all from a pro-
fessionally selected portfolio of
bonds corporate and municipal.
By the way, the portfolio of
bonds is placed in a bank trust and
thereafter is untouched by human
hands. In other words, what you

If it's good, the fee is a matter
of total unimportance. If it's bad
it would be expensive even if
free. Is it something you should in-
vestigate? Probably, especially if
you're one of those hot and cold
investors that shifts gears every
time there's change in the
speculative wind.
All kinds of valuation services
are another new wrinkle at the
local broker. These are designed
to help the investor measure his

mance with a lot of different yard-

is to shine so much light on the

will be virtually impossible. That's

New Generation
Of Orthodox
Jews Assailed
U.S. Orthodox Jewry is now able
to provide "alternative leader-
ship" to American Jewry in lieu of
those leaders who have abandon-
ed Jewish tradition, according to
Rabbi Moshe Sherer, president of
Agudath Israel of America.
Speaking here recently at the
opening of the Orthodox organiza-
tion's 64th national convention,
Sherer hailed the ascendancy of a
new generation of Orthodox Jews
committed to the Torah and ac-
tivism on its behalf.
He criticized what he said was
an "unholy alliance" of secular,
Conservative and Reform Jewish
leaders to change the policies of
non-Zionist yeshivoth in Israel by
attempting to cut off their Jewish
Agency funding raised through
the United Jewish Appeal.
USF Needs Cancer
For Drug Study
G. Byron Hodge, MD, a
urologist on the faculty of the x-
USF surgery department, is con-
ducting a randomized study on an
experimental drug for the Na-
tional Cancer Institute and needs
newly diagnosed prostate cancer
patients to participate in the
Patients whose prostate cancer
has metastasized to bone or soft
tissue and who have not been
treated yet should ask their physi-
cians to refer them to Dr. Hodge
as possible subjects to test
The traditional treatment for \^
prostate cancer includes surgery
and the administration of hor-
mones. Undesirable side effects
such as strokes and heart attacks
can result from hormone therapy,
however. This study seeks to test
whether this new drug will im-
prove the survival rate of these
cancer patients without reliance
on hormone therapy.-
There are 87,000 new cases of
prostate cancer in the United
States each year. No more than 20
percent of these patients are
potentially curable. Eighty per-
cent have metastatic disease
(mainly spreading to the pelvic
bone) and need treatment. For
these patients, 24 months is the
median survival rate.
Interested patients and physi-
cians may call Dr. Hodge at
974-2411 for more information.
