Tampa Jewish Community Tribute
To Israel In a Weekend Celebration
Saturday night, May 2 at
Congregation Rodeph Sholom
at 8:30 p.m., a short memorial
ceremony for the Israeli fallen
soldiers will officially open the
weekend celebration for the
Israeli 39th Independence
The highlight of the evening
will be a concert by Yaffa
Yaffa Yarkoni has sung the
songs of both war and peace,
with a musky voice at times,
and soothing, soft, and strong
at the very same time.
Yaffa Yarkoni began her
career side by side with that of
the new Nation. The bat-
tlefronts of Israel were her on-
ly stage then and therefore left
a sort spot in her heart
forever. She went on enter-
taining soldiers and caring for
them all through her career,
while at the same time appear-
ing at Paris Olympia, New
York Carnegie Hall, Madison
Yaffa Yarkoni
Square Garden Center and
Avery Fisher Hall, New York.
"It is really a great privilege
to have an Israeli Songstress
of this caliber in Tampa," Said
Mrs. Hana Zohar, the
chairperson of the Israeli and
Shaliach Committee, which
organized the evening. "I am
sure that the audience and par-
ticipants at this event will have
a remarkable experience." The
second part of the evening will
give the audience the oppor-
tunity to enjoy themselves
with dancing to Orson Skorr's
Orchestra. A cash bar and hors
d'oeuvres will add to the even-
ing. The Saturday Night Gala
Celebration will be followed by
a Sunday Festival, which will
take place at the Jewish Com-
munity Center on Sunday
Tickets for Saturday night
will be available at the Jewish
Community Center, (North
and South Branches) Con-
gregation Kol Ami, Schaarai
Zedek, Rodeph Sholom, and

How A Nation Was Born
Two Presidents Examined Maps
Immensely frail, Chaim
Weizmann rose from his sick-
bed and, accompanied by the
Jewish Agency expert Eliahu
Epstein, traveled to
Washington by train. Presi-
dent Truman, in no doubt how
the visit would be considered
in the UN lobbies, insisted on
absolute privacy, if not
secrecy. He and the "old doc-
tor," as he called Weizmann,
pored over Epstein's sketch-
map of the area and talked for
half an hour.
That same afternoon, the
President telephoned his chief
delegate at Lake Success: the
southern Negev, with its
keyhole to the Red Sea, must
be kept within the Jewish
State. In return the Arabs
were to be compensated with
Beersheba and a strip along
the Egyptian frontier. The
Russians proved agreeable,
and the situation was saved.
One further week remained
before the final vote in the
General Assembly, and Weiz-
mann's suite at the Waldorf
Astoria now became the nerve
center of the campaign to
force the partition motion
THE LIST of likely op-
ponents and abstainers was
long and gave the Zionists
cause for grave anxiety. To
win the required two-thirds
majority, some minds had to
be changed. The Jews have a
way of advertising their inter-
national minority status as be-
ing a victimizing weakness. In
fact it can be a source of
strength. Geography and
economics locates them
strategically in their Diaspora,
granting them access to the
centres of political decision.
Weizmann now manipulated
this power as he had long done
in public life.
France was under heavy
pressure from the Arab world
to suppress her instinct to vote
for the Jewish State. Hr vote
was captured from under Arab
eyes by an assault from two
sides. Bernard Baruch, whose
war-time hostility to Weiz-
mann had changed to admira-
tion, advised the French
representative that American
aid to his country might be
withdrawn in the event of a
negative stand. The vote was
due to be taken on Nov. 26.
The evening before, Weiz-
mann telephoned a Zionist
friend in Paris, Marc Jarblum,
to transmit a message to Leon
Blum, now at the end of his
political and physical tether.
THIS SAID: "France's deci-
sion to abstain from voting has
caused painful dismay here,
and above all to the five-million
strong Jewish community. For
the first time, the two Great
Powers are in agreement.
French abstention could well
lead to others following her ex-
ample, and this may well
wreck the entire plan. If the
French government destroyed
the Jewish people's last hope,
it would bear a frightful
It was a midnight in Paris.
But Blum could not ignore the
plea. He had the message con-
veyed to President Vincent
Auriol, as well as to the
Premier, Paul Ramadier, and
the Foreign Minister, George
Bidault. France succumbed.
Less difficult to persuade
were those Central American
republics whose economic life-
blood depended on the United
Fruit Company, for this cor-
poration was owned by the
Zionist, Samuel Zemurray.
The Philippines were won over
when detective work tracked
down an American Jew in Lon-
don who had been physician
and friend to the President in
Manila. It was rumoured in the
lobbies that Liberia was moved
to a change of heart on a hint
from the Firestone Rubber
PASSAGE OF the resolu-
tion was still not assured,
when the Arab states re-
quested more time, and
Thanksgiving Day intervened.
Unexpectedly, the Jews found
themselves with three days
grace to continue their can-
vass. In this inverval, they won
over Greece, Belgium and New
Zealand. Nov. 29 was a Satur-

Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben-Gunon (right)
characterized the Israel Defense Force's approach to itsnew
recruits by declaring that 'A good soldier is an educated soldier.
He is shown here presenting a menorah to President Truman,
who led the United States as the first member of the United Na-
tions to recognize the new State of Israel.
Denver Considering Ways
To Save Golda's House
DENVER, Colo. (JTA) The City and County of
Denver are seeking proposals to redevelop and manage the
house here in which the late Israeli Premier Golda Meir liv-
ed from 1913-14 with her sister and brother-in-law.
Having fallen into disrepair, the house sits on tem-
porary footings in a local park. It has been the focus of a re-
cent battle between members of the City Building Depart-
ment of Appeals, who want to raze the structure, and
members of the Jewish community, who want to save it.

of new knowledge on how
Jews, Christians and Arabs liv-
ed and worked together in
peace in the early centuries of
the Christian epoch. Dr.

minister, has consistently par-
ticipated in and encouraged in-
terfaith and intercultural

meetings called "Living Room
Dialogues." She serves as a

that position, she had a promo-
tional film produced which has
become the college's most im-
portant tool in recent suc-
cessful student recruitment
fund raising efforts. She is
proud of her contribution to
"Shakespeare in the Park"
which played free of charge to
20,000 and "Shakespeare in
the School" which exposed
thousands of students in

The public is invited to at-
tend the awards banquet
which serves as the principal
source of funds for NCCJ's
community educational pro-
grams for interfaith and inter-
racial relations. The budget of
approximately $83,000 sup-
ports local NCCJ programm-
ing efforts during 1986-87.
During the bicentennial of
the U.S. Constitution, NCCJ is
sponsoring a popular "Sign
On" project. Numerous-Com-
munity organizations and
municipalities have conducted
patriotic "Signings." More
than 100,000 students in

in a variety of political and
community situations involv-
ing anti-Jewish bigotry.

Linnas in Estonia
To Face Charges He
Murdered 12,000
8 p.m Monday (Apr. 20), A
Czechoslovak airliner left New
York with accused Nazi war
criminal Karl Linnas aboard.
This put the cap on a long-
drawn-out procedure to effect
the deportation of the man
who was commandant of the
Tartu, Estonia, concentration
camp where over 12,000 men,
women and children were
murdered during World War
Linnas was flown to Prague,
and from there to the Soviet
Union, following a refusal
Monday by the U.S. Supreme
Court to stay Linnas' deporta-
tion. The high court voted
Monday morning 6-3 against
granting the stay. Justices
William Brennan, Harry
Blackmail and Sandra Day
O'Connor registered the
dissenting votes in favor of the
plane, the 67-year-old Linnas,
a coat covering his handcuffs,
shouted to the press: "Tell the
American people what they
are doing is murder and
In Moscow, Soviet Foreign
Ministry spokesman Gennady
Gerasimov said Tuesday (April
21) that Linnas may be allowed
to appeal his 1962 Soviet death
Linnas was sentenced to
death in absentia in the Soviet
Union in 1962 for wartime
atrocities. Since 1951, Linnas
lived quietly in Greenlawn,
Long Island. He was granted
U.S. citizenship in 1960, after
concealing his wartime ac-
tivities upon entering the
country under the Displaced
Persons Act of 1948.
Linnas was charged by the
U.S. Justice Department of
directing firing squads at
prisoners kneeling before pits
that served as mass graves,
and of personally shooting
camp inmates.
FOLLOWING investiga-
tions by the Justice Depart-
ment's Office of Special In-
vestigations (OSI), Linnas was
stripped of his citizenship in
July, 1981 by U.S. District
Court in Westburv, L.I., a
decision he appealed numerous
times through several courts.
He was ordered deported on
May 29, 1983. After losing a
bid to the Board of Immigra-
tion Appeal, he took his case to
the Supreme Court, which
refused four times since last
December to hear his appeal.
Representatives of Jewish
organizations blamed U.S. At-
torney Geneal Edwin Meese
tor refusing to sign off on the
deportation papers. Linnas
was represented by former
U.S. Attorney General
Ramsey Clark.
There had been charges in
some quarters that Soviet
evidence used in the Linnas
case may have been fabricated,
but FBI experts and the courts
which examined the evidence
verified its authenticity, Elan
Steinberg, World Jewish Con-
gress executive director,
pointed out.
"THERE HAS never been
one instance when a document
(in a war crimes matter) sup-
plied by the Soviet Union has
been fabricated or forged,"
Steinberg said. He added that
the OSI and the WJCongress
had requested the documents,
the Soviets never offered them
voluntarily. Last week, Linnas
came within hours of receiving
political asylum from Panama,
which retracted its offer after
the swift intercession of the
World Jewish Congress and
other leading Jewish legal ac-
tivists, including Menachem
Rosensaft, chairman of the In-
ternational Network of
Children of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors, and Brooklyn
District Attorney Elizabeth
Holtzmam, who as a con-
gresswoman authored legisla-
tion for the deportation of Nazi
war criminals.
WJC officials, who learned
during the first Passover seder
last Monday night of the deci-
sion by Meese to deport Linnas
to Panama, immediately con-
tacted Panamanian officials in
the U.S., as well as members
of the Panama Jewish com-
munity. On Tuesday, WJC
general counsel Eli Rosen-
baum, together with Holtzman
and Rosensaft, flew to
Washington to meet with of-
ficials at the Panamanian
Early Wednesday (Apr. 22),
the Panamanian Embassy an-
nounced that the deportation
{)lans would be delayed, and
ater that day the Panamanian
Consul General in New York
issued a second statement say-
ing that Linnas' request for
asylum had been demed. This
brought to 17 the number of
countries that rejected Linnas'
bid for asylum.

again refused, and Monday
night, while Linnas was
already on the plane, minutes
before departure, a final ap-
peal for a stay made to chief
Justice William Rehnquist was
denied, bringing Linnas' total
court appearances to 13.
"He has gotten every possi-
ble benefit of due process of
law," said Rosensaft, a senti-
ment echoed by Holtzman,
who said, "Karl Linnas has
had more than due process.
He's exhausted the entire
justice system."
Within moments of hearing
of Linnas' deportation, a
Holocaust survivor, Ernest
Zelig, president of Bnai Zion,
notified the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency of his
satisfaction on the case's out-
come, saying, "I am grateful
at the Supreme Court's deci-
sion to deport the convicted
Nazi war criminal, Karl Lin-
nas. He has received due pro-
cess, something he denied his
12,000 innocent victims at the
Tartu concentration camp."
dent of the American Gather-
ing and Federation of Jewish
Holocaust Survivors, who was
preparing to mention the case
Sunday at a commemoration in
New York of the Warsaw
Ghetto Uprising, said, "Thank
God. I think we should be pro-
ud of the action of our govern-
ment. It's not enough, and it's
quite late, but better late than
never. I would say that this
will probably encourage fur-
ther actions against Nazi war
criminals in the United States.
"This is not a question of
vengeance; it's a question of
going through the judicial pro-
cess. The books of the U.S.
should remain open, so that we
can't say that we did not take
action against known war
criminals, Nazi collaborators
and Nazi murderers." Meed
praised the "devotion" of OSI
director Neal Sher in seeing
through the process.
Rosensaft said he was "glad
it's over. I feel relief. I don't
feel any joy, I certainly don't
feel a sense of victory, but a
sense of having done the very
least and perhaps the only
thing we can do for Linnas'
victims and for all the other
victims of the Holocaust,
which is to bring their killers
to justice. We can't bring them
back to life, we can't make
their agony and their suffering
any less.
"THE ONLY thing we can
do for them is to make sure
that their murderers are
brought to justice and are not
able to live out their days in
freedom knowing they have
gotten away with it. We talk a
great deal about keeping alive
the flame of remembrance.
But we never forget that that
particular flame cannot exist
without the flame of justice."
Rosenbaum, a former war
crimes prosecutor for the OSI,
said it was "a great relief that
Karl Linnas' four decades as a
fugitive from justice have at
last come to an end, and that
history has finally caught up
with Karl Linnas. But it's inap-
propriate to say that anyone is
happy, because it's not going

Lili Kopecky, Committee Of
Survivors Of Auschwitz,
Visits Tampa
The Tampa Jewish com-
munity played host April 4-6 to
Israeli visitor Lili Kopecky,
Secretary General of the
Public Committee of Survivors
of Auschwitz and Other Exter-
mination Camps, who was in
the area as part of her
Holocaust lecture tour.
Kopecky's collection of lec-
tures, In the Shadow of
Flames, published by Emory
University Press, recounts her
captivity in Auschwitz from
July, 1942, to her liberation
from Glewe in May, 1946.
Kopeckv's current lecture
series included participation in
the University of Alabama
Holocaust Conference, a
presentation at the University
of South Florida Holocaust
and Genocide class, and a half-
hour presentation on WUSF
Channel 16. Her current col-
lection of lectures, to be
published by the University of
Alabama Press, goes beyond
her experiences in Auschwitz
to include discussions of neo-
Nazism and anti-Semitism in
today's world.
Kopecky is also editor of
Voice of Auschwitz Survivors,
a quarterly journal published
by Holocaust survivors. The
journal is published in English,
German, and Hebrew, and
features articles on Holocaust
education, new testimony con-
cerning the Holocaust,
reviews, and news from
around the world about to-
day's anti-Semitism. Those in-
terested in obtaining copies of
the journal should write to

Mahatir's Malaysia: A Classic Case of Racism

Mr. Foxman is associate national
director of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith and its
director of International Affairs;
Mr. Goldmann is director of
ADL's Paris office.
In recent months, Malaysia
has become one of the most
persistent and vitriolic at-
tackers of Israel and Zionism.
Its president, Dr. Mahatir
Mohamed, likes to speak of
"Zionist plots," and "interna-
tional Jewish media" and even
opposes the performance of
works by Jewish authors and
In November, 1986,
Malaysia bitterly criticized
other states of Southeast Asia,
and especially its neighbor
Singapore, on the eve of for-
mal visits by President Chaim
Herzog. Earlier in 1986, at a
meeting in Zimbabwe, Mahatir
Mohamed said that "the expul-
sion of the Jews from the Holy
Land 2000 years ago and the
Nazi oppression of the Jews
have taught them nothing. If
at all, it nas transformed the
Jews into the very monsters
that they condemn in their pro-
paganda. They have been apt
pupils of Dr. Goebbels."
Looking at the country's
policy towards its own
minorities, the reasons for
such racist attitudes become
evident. Under Mahatir,
Malaysia has become a racist
nation patterning its actions
literally after Nazi Germany.
The key term for policy toward
minorities primarily
Chinese (34 percent) and In-
dian (9 percent) is Bhumip-
tra. Just about half of the
population is Malay (Moslem).
The English translation of
Bhumiputra is "rooted in the
soil." In German, it is bodens-
taendig. This is the word
Hitler and his chief ideologist
Alfred Rosenberg used to
distinguish the native, bodens-
taendig, or "Aryan" popula-
tion from the minorities
mostly Jewish.
Under Mahatir Mohammed,
Malaysia follows the same doc-
trine as Nazi Germany in the
thirties. It distinguishes bet-
ween those who "have their
roots in the soil" and those
who, no matter how many
generations ago, were im-
migrants. Thus, people who
have completely absorbed the
majority culture, except for
religion, and have for genera-
tions considered themselves
equal members of the national
community, are no longer first
class citizens. Only Moslem
Malays enjoy this status. All
that matters is race, which is a
shorter version of "roots in the
Under this policy, Mahatir
Mohamed has established
quotas for reducing minority
shares in the ownership of pro-
ductive enterprises, public ser-
vice jobs, management posi-
tions and educational oppor-
tunity. In all these areas, the
Chinese, and to a lesser degree
the Indians, have had a share
far exceeding their proportion
of the population. Yet even to
start counting in these terms
when it comes to minorities
who have not had any special
benefits to help them achieve
their position, is to be a racist a
la Hitler.
He too, started by
hatemongering against the
"preponderant position" of
the Jews in the economic life of
Germany, in the universities
and the arts, as well as in the
political life of the Weimar
Republic. To be sure, Mahatir
Mohamed has not gone as far
as to write a Malay equivalent
of Mein Kempf or projected a
"final solution" for the ethnic
Perhaps and hopefully he
never will. Yet what he has
already done to discriminate
against Chinese and Indian
citizens of Malaysia is enough
to cause a steady exodus of
young Chinese to Australia,
Britain, Canada and other
Commonwealth nations who
treat their citizens as equals.
He has even forbidden the con-
struction of a Chinese universi-
ty. In this sense, too, Malaysia
follows in the footsteps of Nazi
Germany in the mid-thirties
when Jewish participation in

The "New Economic Policy"
that implements the
Bhumiputra principle has not
had the desired effects. Malays
have remained far behind the
quotas Mahatir Mohamed had
set for them in possession of
shares management positions
and educational accomplish-
ment. And while a good deal of
Malaysia's economic recession
of the past couple of years has
been due to falling world
market prices of its chief ex-

counterproductive effects of
Dr. Mahatir's administration
toward Malaysia's minorities.
Whether one likes it or not,
the enterprise of Malay-
Chinese has been the
locomotive of the nation's
economy. Modern Kuala Lum-
pur is a monument to this
spirit of productive investment
and hard work. Malaysians of
Chinese descent have been
among the country's most
loyal citizens and, as testimony
to their loyalty and sense of be-
ing rooted in the country, form
part of the majority coalition
headed by Dr. Mahatir and his
party despite the official

make an invaluable contribu-

manageable without

Yet racism is by its nature ir-
rational and, when it is domi-

and fairness are cast aside.

consequences for his own peo-
ple this implies.

Quality Of Excellence Makes Menorah Manor Shine
Menorah Manor in St.
Petersburg is in a class by
... That Menorah Manor is
the only home on the West
Coast of Florida that observes
Jewish tradition as a way of
... That the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Ser-
vices (HRS) has awarded
superior marks to the home
and staff for two consecutive
... That the $6-million facili-
ty was built and is maintained
through the financial generosi-
ty of the community.
Operating on the premise
that quality of life is a valued
commodity, Menorah Manor
has established a reputation
based on excellence since it
opened its doors two years
ago. Menorah Manor is a home
for the living, not a place to
come and die, and in that sense
alone, it should not be so
"The goal here is to help
residents maintain their digni-
Sf and to keep them as in-
ependent as possible," said
Edward W. Vinocur, the
home's executive director.
Menorah Manor residents
find little time for depression
and no tolerance for laziness,
thanks to a professional and
deeply caring staff. Each day,
residents are out of bed and
dressed in street clothes.
Meals are taken in the com-
munal dining room to simulate
restaurant dining, and each
resident is expected at his or
her table, unless they are ill.
Food service follows the
dietary laws of Kashruth, and
a mashgiach is employed to en-
sure the preservation of the
kosher atmosphere. This lends
to the overall commitment to
Jewish living the home has
striven to maintain.
Jewish cultural and religious
celebrations are observed with
activities, special foods and in-
tergenerational programs. At
Chanukah. the home
celebrated with services per-
formed by a different rabbi
each night. The Activity
Department held a potato
latka party, for which the
residents made applesauce and
fresh potato latkas. For Suk-
kot, a large sukkah was
erected and beautifully
decorated, giving residents the
opportunity to lunch outside.
Located next door to
Menorah Manor is the Pinellas
County Jewish Day School.
The children are frequent
visitors to the home, singing
Hebrew songs at birthday par-
ties and performing Israeli
dance for the residents. The
children also participate in
religious observances with the
Residents are also involved
in activities outside the home,
including attending cultural
events at Ruth Eckerd Hall,
championship wrestling at the
Bayfront Center, and lunches

notion that Palestinians would

bring Palestinians closer to the

Save Golda's House
THE GAZA incident arous-
ed fury among Jewish settlers.
On Sunday they drove a
motorcade through Gaza,
openly displaying their
weapons as a warning and
show of force.
Those developments, which
coincided with the end of the
PNC meeting, made it clear
that Israelis would have to re-
evaluate the political situation.
The severe blows inflicted on
the PLO in the Lebanon war,
and its fragmentation during
the years that followed, did not
bring Palestinian moderates to
the fore. Now, with the PLO
seeingly reunited, the
moderates have run for cover.
Shortly before the PNC, the
so-called Palestinian
parliament-in-exile, convened
for its 18th session in Algiers,
Peres met twice with local
Palestinian leaders, some of
them known PLO sym-
pathizers. So did Abba Eabn,
chairman of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
Those meetings yielded no
concrete results and Palesti-
nians and Israelis now appear
farther apart than ever.
This view was expressed by
several Ministers after the
weekly Cabinet meeting Sun-
day. Communications Minister
Amnon Rubinstein of the
Shinui Party told reporters the
meeting in Algiers
"strengthened those of us who
think the PLO and peace are
mutually exclusive. Energy
Minister Moshe Shahal, a
Laborite, said Israel and Jor-
dan would have to find other
Palestinians willing to come to
the negotiating table. Gad
Yaacobi, Minister of Economic
Coordination, also a Laborite,
thought the PNC meeting had
"created some setback in the
political process" but that it
wasn't "critical."

ARAFAT WON re-elections
to the chairmanship of the

only after agreeing to conces-

balked earlier in the day.
These included an enlarged
PNC executive committee in
which he will have to share
power with terrorist ex-
tremists, such as Abu Abbas,
accused of masterminding the
Achille Lauro hijacking. But
some Syrian-backed extremist
groups were excluded.

A third facet of Soviet policy

with an ability to guide both

There are obstacles, Blei
pointed out. The PLO's break
with Egypt so enraged Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak that he
ordered his observers home
from Algiers before the PNC's
deliberations ended. The of-
ficial Cairo weekly Al-Akhbar
stated in an editorial that it
was time for Egypt to end its
active support for the Palesti-
nians. "We have suffered
Mideast Peace Process Shouldn't
Be Hostage to PLO State Dep't.
The Middle East peace process
should not become "hostage to
the internal politics of the
PLO," a State Department of-
ficial has said. But Richard
Murphy, Assistant Secretary
of State for Near Eastern and
South Asian Affairs, admitted
that the Palestine Liberation
Organization's repudiation of
its 1985 accord with Jordan on
a joint approach to peace at its
conference last week in
Algiers may be "diversion"
from negotiatons.
"It (the repudiation) does
nothing to get the negotiations
started," Murphy said in
testimony before the House
Foreign Affairs Committee.
"It may prove to be a diversion
in getting the Palestinians to
the table in a joint Jordanian-
Palestinian conference."
HE ADDED, "We don't
think the peace process should
become hostage to internal
politics of the PLO and we will
continue our efforts to give a
hand to people in the region
who are suffering from a lack
of progress in the peace pro-
cess. "Murphy saicf a Jorda-
nian statement indicated that
the Palestine National Council
(PNC) meeting in Algeria
would not "change the princi-
ple that they're interested in
getting to negotiations."
Earlier, State Department
spokesman Charles Redman
refused to comment on the
PNC conference. But Redman
said the U.S. expressed to
Algeria its concern it has ad-
mitted to the country Abu Ab-
bas, the terrorist accused of
spearheading the October,
1985 hijacking of the Italian
cruise ship Achille Lauro in
which an American passenger,
Leon Klinghofier, was
murdered. The U.S. has no ex-
tradition treaty with Algeria.
Murphy described the PNC
conference as "the continued
mining by the PLO of that rich
vein of frustration and sense of
despair that they can't make
their voices heard and achieve
their rights." The repudiation
of the 1985 accord was an at-
tempt to "bring back to the
fold some radicals," he said.
But he noted that the con-
ference decided not to break
ties with Egypt.
raid April 19 into Israel,' in
which two Israeli soldiers were
killed, was clearly timed to
coincide with the conferences.
But he told the Congressmen it

PLO to open a major front in
On the subject of peace
talks, Murphy said U.S. at-
tempts to start direct talks
between Israel and Jordan
have been stalemated over the
issue of an international peace
"We are trying to iron out
the difficulties. Direct negotia-
tions have problems for the
Arabs who don't want negotia-
tions without an international
conference. They feel they
must have international
legitimization," Murphy said.
"But we're worried that the
conference could become a
political theater for excessive
rhetoric and make things
messy," he added.

Peres Threatens He'll Seek
New Elections on Peace Issue
ice Premier and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres said on
television last Wednesday
night (April 22) that he would
seek new elections on the
peace issue if necessary.
Peres said he was "sure"
that Jordan would enter into
direct negotiations with Israel
following an "international
opening' of a peace con-
ference with the participation
of all parties concerned within
and outside the region.
His advocacy of an interna-
tional conference for Middle
East peace has brought him in-
to open conflict with Premier
Yitzhak Shamir. He was assail-
ed by Likud last Thursday for
allegedly implying that Shamir
was anti-peace.
PERES CAME under sharp
attack from Likud Minister
Moshe Arens who accused him
of partisan pursuit of a policy
(an international conference)
which has not been approved
by the Cabinet.
The Vice Premier said he
hoped dissolution of the Labor-
Likud unity coalition govern-
ment and early elections could
be avoided. There may well be
Likud Ministers who would
support an "international
opening" followed by direct
negotiations, he said.
Peres recalled that a ranking
Likud leader, Deputy Premier
and Housing Minister David
Levy, broke with his party
three years ago to vote with
Labor for withdrawal of the
Israel Defense Force from

2nd Grade at Hillel School are holding Ben the Bookworm. Ben
the Bookworm is starting to go up the wall! Every time the
children write a book report they make a segment for Ben the
Bookworm. Some of the wide variety of books the children have
read are: United States of America, The Week at Grandma's,
Messy, and I can Read about Spiders. Watching Ben the
Bookworm grow is an exciting and educational tool.

Thoughts Of A Hillel Graduate
"Oh! Wow!" These were the
words of Mark Zibel upon
returning to Hillel seven years
after graduation. Intelligent,
ambitious and sensitive are the
words to describe this
delightful young man you
spoke so confidently of then
and now.
Mark attended Hillel from
4th through 8th grade. He was
accepted at Jesuit, but his
family moved to
Massachusetts and he entered
the public school system. As he
looked around the building,
one notices the warmth in his
eyes as he recollected some of
the memories.
Hillel was a second story
class at Rodeph Shalom, with
an empty lot as a playground,
supplied by equipment that the
students raised money to buy.
There were no shelves,
carpeting or cubby holes. Ser-
vices were held daily, and
lunch was eaten in the chapel.
Everyone attending the
Science Fair paid their way
and usually half returned with
medals. He remembered Adam
Sloan's chicken eating 20
weeks of plants with human
hormone, (Mark's Science pro-
Mark Zibel
ject) on the day of judging. He
also thanked Cantor Hauben
and the teachers who influenc-
ed a portion of his life as he
remembered all that he receiv-
ed from the school.
"It feels like home. The
building is different but the
feeling is the same. This looks
like a school." When Mark
first walked in he noticed the
shelves stocked with books,
learning materials, computers
and cubbyholes! "The Science
room is an actual room, not a
corner." He spoke candidly of
the values, which helped him
become the person he is today.
There was a great deal of in-
Math Students At Hillel School
Are Learning Some Basics Of Electronics
cuits, and the hardware and
In addition to their math
studies, the 7th grade math
class at Hillel School has been
working on an electronics pro-
ject. The project was the
assembly of a touch-control
switch. A touch-control switch
consists of a control unit and a
control plate. The purpose of a
touch-control unit is to turn on
an electrical device, such as a
lamp, fan, or TV set by remote
control. To operate an elec-
trical device, you simply place
your finger on the control
plate. One touch and the elec-
trical device comes on. Touch
again and the electrical device
turns off.
To build the touch-control
switch required the soldering
and assembling of over 85
parts with over 100 step-by-
step procedures. To do this
students learned the fun-
damentals of soldering. They
also became familiar with elec-
tronic components such as
resistors, capacitors, diodes
transistors, integrated cir-
winng necessary
for their
fluence from parents, teachers
and the school.
He learned responsibility for
actions, the need to help and
participate, rather than
criticize and the ability to try,
because if you don't, you'll
never know. And that is what
he did ...
Armed with monopoly
money "to buy" supplies,
Mark Zibel ran for president of
the class, and won... He
remembered the ioy of winn-
ing and the confidence it gave
him later on.
Drugs and drinking were a
shock to the 8th grader when
he moved up to Massachusetts.
"There was no such thing at
Hillel, we liked to get dressed
up and dance at parties on the
weekend!" and his comment
today, "just say no, you can't
be in charge if something is in
charge of you."
Mark, today is a junior at
Framingham State College,
majoring in Sociology. He
holds 4 part-time positions,
one of which is a "store detec-
tive," and hopes to join the
ranks of the Framingham
Police Department!
"It's not enough to say we
need something or voice our
displeasure. I want to help. I
want to do something. I need
to try!"
Go for it Mark... you can do
This evening may be dangerous
to your health!
