[Jewish history is the story of a small people seeking freedom

The story of Hanukkah is a story of man's indomitable wish to

BUENOS AIRES (JTA)
This is a superb, proud ci-
ty, easily the most cosmopo-
litan, after New York, in the
Americas, and its Jewish
community of more than
200,000 possesses the vitali-
ty and sophistication of the
city it so proudly inhabits. It
also shares the socio-
economic woes of the new
democracy that dawned in
1983 after the long night of
Despite prior estimates of twice
the amount, the actual number of
Argentine Jews, including the
50,000 residing outside Buenos
Aires, appears to be a bit less than
a quarter of a million, still one of
the largest communities in the
diaspora. The vast majority are
Ashkenazi, but the 10 percent who
are Sephardic (primarily Jews
who originated in Aleppo, Syria)
are Orthodox and tightly organ-
On the economic scale, 15 to 20
percent are well-do-do, and about
the same number are poor, suffer-
ing from high unemployment and
a bare subsistence level. The 60
percent comprising the middle
class are finding it more difficult
to maintain their status and are
being forced to eliminate many of
the comforts of life.
A serious problem for many is
the inability to afford membership
in Jewish clubs, and expensive
Jewish schools for their children,
who are now attending the ex-
cellent public schools in increasing
A staggering paradox is that the
government of Israel has been
forced twice in recent years to
disburse $1 million to the Buenos
Aires community to prevent the
closing of the schools, and
negotiations are now in progress
for an extra $750,000 subsidy
from hard-pressed Israel.
Another anomaly is that the
wealthier Argentine Jews refuse
to support basic Jewish institu-
tions and stand by silently, while
Israel must dig down deep into its
nearly depleted treasury to bail
out a far-distant enclave.
A major problem, according to
Dr. David Goldberg, president of
the DAIA (Delegacion de Asocia-
ciones Israelites Argentinas), the
representative body of 130 institu-
tions, is that only one-third of the
community is involved in suppor-
ting Jewish clubs, schools and
Jews hold office in the House of
Representatives, and the Cabinet,
and are officers of the Central
It had to be borne in mind, said
Goldberg, that Argentina is 90
percent Catholic, and that there is
no separation between church and
"Our community," he added,
"not only here, but in the cities of
Cordoba, Mendoza, Rosario, and
throughout, operates within the
framework of a Catholic nation,
but our relations with the Church
are improving slowly."
Israel's former Ambassador to
Argentina, Dov Schmorak, points
out that this is one of the very few
Jewish communities with a pro-
letariat, that "12 to 14 percent
live below the poverty line."
Organized Jewish life here, he
asserts, has not been very helpful
to the 20,000-30,000 in this
The AMIA (Asociacion Mutual
Israelite Argentina), the central
Ashkenazi community, has tried
to assist them. A daily sight at its
headquarters on Pasteur Street is
a long line of able and healthy
young men and women waiting
their turn to see if a job is
available. The aliya department
stands ready, says Schmorak, to
help them leave for Israel, but few
are willing to begin a new life in a
far-off land without some funds to
provide a viable head start.
There has been an extremely

Jews and Israel throughout the
years, declared Schmorak, and he
alluded not only to the many kib-
butzim organized by Argenti-
nians, but to the current and in-
tensive traffic between the two
nations, the cultural exchanges,
and the medical and technical con-
tributions, such as solar energy,
made by Israel to this South
Schmorak deplored the fact that
the considerable Argentine in-
terest in Israel is not reflected in
its attitudes in international
organizations such as the United
Nations, where its voting pattern
with regard to Israel has not im-
proved with the recent change in
When asked what he considers
as his most important achieve-
ment, Schmorak's response was
swift and unequivocal: it was sav-
ing the lives of Jews detained by
the previous regime. There was
nothing he could do about the
"desaparecidos," those who were
picked up in their homes, most
often in the middle of the night,
and who were never seen again.
During those years, the waiting-
room of the Embassy was full of
wives, mothers, and grand-
mothers of those who had "disap-
peared." They were there to seek
information concerning their lov-

Kirkpatrick Decries Press' Role in Hostage Crisis
The media's apparent sympathy
for Shiite terrorists during the re-
cent hostage crisis has
strengthened efforts to brand the
United States and Israel as
scapegoats by those who "Seek to
make legitimate what is il-
legitimate," Jeane J. Kirkpatrick,
former U.S. Ambassador to he
UN, said in a recent address at Tel
Aviv University's Jaffee Center
for Strategic Studies.
Mrs. Kirkpatrick's remarks
came during a recent seven-day
visit to Israel, coordinated by the
Harry Walker lecture bureau of
New York, during which she
delivered a personal message
from Secretary of State Shultz to
Israeli Prime Minister Shimon
Peres and met ith key govern-
ment officials and former Prime
Minister Menachem Begin.
Mrs. Kirkpatrick will be speak-
ing the Community Pacesetters
Dinner Dance on Feb. 22 at the
The former U.S. envoy to the
UN also met with Tel Aviv
University officials to discuss
plans for the Jeane J. Kirkpatrick
Institute for Public Leadership
and Public Policy at the Universi-
ty. The Institute, established
earlier this year when Mrs.
Kirkpatrick accepted an honorary
doctorate defree from Tel Aviv
University at an academic con-
vocation in New York, will train
men and women for leadership
roles in Israeli government
Terming the media's seeming
empathy with the Shiite cause "a
manifestation of the strange doc-
trine of moral equivalence," the
former UN envoy expressed
alarm that many reporters seem-
ed to take the position that the hi-
jacking was really Israel's fault.
This attitude produced feelings,
both in the U.S. and Israel that,
despite the brutal victimization of
the hostages actions she brand-
ed as "violating the most basic
moral values of Western civiliza-
tion one ought nevertheless to
try to understand the terrorists'
point of view, she said.
Mrs. Kirkpatrick also termed
the "victimization of Israel inside
the United Nations" as another
clear example of the effort "to
make legitimate the illegitimate
use of violence against Israel in
the name of various kinds of
Noting that both her first and
last acts at the UN had been to de-
fend Israel against what she term-
ed "totally unfair and unbalanc-
ed" Security Council resolutions
against her, Mrs. Kirkpatrick
said: "I learned that at the UN
Israel is always guilty, and that
Israel, unlike other governments,
has no right to self-defense."
These resolutions, she sug-
gested, represent an effort by a
coalition of Moslem, Communist
and Third World states to "isolate
economically, militarily and
technically in order to make
Israel a total pariah state."
Noting that this coalition had
sought unsuccessfully to expell
Israel from the UN by defining it
as "not a peaceloving state," and
as a "settler state," Mrs.
"Israel is subjected to the
wildest and falsest charges at the
UN and is systematically
discriminated against within that
body. It is clear that the efforts
against Israel at the UN aim at
nothing less than total
delegitimization of the State of
While UN resolutions against
Israel might seem ineffective, she
explained, "there is some sense in
which it is very dangerous for a
people and state to be branded as
illegitimate ... by a great global
body. Legitimacy does not deter-
mine survival in the short run, but
every important political
philosopher and thinker who has
considered the survival of states
has given central importance to
the question of legitimacy."

Hillcrest Big Gifts Announces:
Clary to Speak At Hillcrest
For 36 years I kept my ex-
periences during the war locked up
inside myself. but those who are
attempting to deny the Holocaust,
my suffering and the suffering of
millions of others have forced me
to speak out Young people
must know what happened, for
their own sake.
Robert Clary is perhaps best
known as Louis Lebeau on the TV
series Hogan's Heroes and his
role on the TV Soap Opera Days
of Our Lives.
But Robert Clary was 14-years-
old when Germany invaded
France in 1940. Two years later,
Clary was shipped to the first of
four concentration camps.
"We had only 10 minutes to col-
lect our belongings and prepare
for deportation. My mother urged
me to hide in a neighbor's
bathroom with my sister. I could
not leave my mother, so I wrap-
ped some clothes in my blanket
and proceeded to the deportation
center with her," Clary has said.
Clary will be bring his message,
his recollections to South
Broward where he will speak at
the Hillcrest's Big Gifts Cocktail
Buffet on Jan. 7 at 5:30 p.m. at
the Hillcrest Country Club.
"Robert Clary brings a sen-
sitivity as an artist and performer
to his recollections of the
Holocaust. His story will touch
all," said Joseph Raymond,
Hillcrest 1986 chairman.
"Clary's story is both poignant
and interesting. Everyone at
Hillcrest should attend," Ray-
Clary and his mother were plac-
ed in a cattle car with 100 other
French Jews. They traveled for
three days and two nights before
they reached the concentration
"Upon arrival at this camp, SS
guards with dogs and clubs in-
structed the men in the train to
get out and sit on the platform. I
was asked how old I am, but could
not answer because I did not
speak German. Someone told the
SS officer that I was 16 old
enough to wmtk as a slave laborer
for the GeraMM," Clary said.
"If not, I would have been put
back on the train with my family
and sent to Auschwitz to be gass-
ed," he added.
It was "pure luck," Clary claims
that he did not meet the fate of six
million other Jews who were
murdered by the Nazis during the
war. Thirteen members of his im-
mediate family were deported
from Paris to Nazi concentration
camps; Clary was the only one to
He was liberated from Buchen-
wald in 1945 by the U.S. Army.
After the war, Clary went back
to Paris to start his life again. He
started singing professionally
again. The success of his singing
career brought him to the United
States in 1949, where he eventual-
ly gained recognition in all fields
of entertainment night clubs,

Will South Africa Jews
Emigrate to Israel?
By MARTY ERANN
Will the situation in South Africa lead to a substantial increase
in Aliyah from that country? There have been reports that some
South African Jews have started relocating to Australia, Canada,
England or other Anglo-Saxon countries.
Apparently, there are those in the Israel government who think
- or hope such an increase will come about. Prime Minister
Shimon Peres reportedly has asked some of his ministers to
prepare a plan for the absorption of such an immigration.
While South African Jews are generally well off, emigrants are
resticted by law to taking out no more than 100,000 rands from
there the equivalent of leas than $40,000. However, once out of
the country, the emigrants, unlike those from other western coun-
tries, are not eligible to receive pension.
Meanwhile, there are some 20,000 Israelis ("yordim" or
emigrants and businessmen) living in South Africa, (from The
The average American reader could get easily confused, if the
press were to carry full reports on daily occurrences in Southern
Lebanon. In fact, if often appears that the main reason they do
not report so fully from that area, now that Israel has withdrawn,
is that even the news pros are often confused .. Now only major
car bombs and militia clashes in Beirut are reported .
There are several items worth mentioning in this context, and
the conclusions or interpretation of their significance should be
* Recently, for the first time since the withdrawal, Israeli
troops penetrated into Lebanon, north of the security belt ocn-
trolled by the South Lebanese Army (the Christian SLA militia
backed by Israel). They imposed a curfew on three villages, while
searching for suspected Shiite terrorists who took part in recent
attacks. One of these attacks was the launching of Katyusha
rockets into Galilee three days earlier. Indeed, the IDF found ad-
ditional Katyusha rockets and launchers, as well as explosives,
weapons and ammunition in great quantity.
* Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin stated that this operation
(the IDF withdrew after about eight hours) was a warning to the
Shiite Amal militia that Israel would not tolerate any expansion of
their activities across the border. However, military analysts in
Israel say that the action was directed primarily against the more
extreme Hezbolla Shiites, who are trying to establish control in
Southern Lebanon. There have been reports of clashes between
the larger Amal militia and the more radical Hezbolla group, as
well as between Amal and Palestinian elements which tried to re-
infiltrate into Southern Lebanon.
* Another incident recently involved the capture by Israel's
Navy of a boat carrying a squad of Palestinian Fatah terrorists
(from the Arafat camp of the PLO), on their way to Sidon in
Southern Lebanon, with plans to infiltrate into the Galilee to
carry out a terror operation. These terrorists have been trained in
Algeria during the past year for this operation. It was the second
time such a unit was captured in less than three weeks the first
was caught by the Amal militia in Sidon.
* Any doubts about Syria's role in the suicide bombings which
have taken so many hundreds of lives in recent years were dispell-
ed recently when Damascus Television aired an interview with a
Syrian suicide volunteer, taped before he set out on his mission.
The suicide "hero" repeatedly talked of the "teachings of Assad"
(Syria's president) calling for, sacrifice in the Pan-Arab cause, be
it in Syria, Lebanon or in Palestine. The very broadcast of the in-
terview by the state-controlled television is an indication of en-
dorsement of the suicide bombings, apart from what the terrorist
had to say.

NEW YORK The halls of the
United Nations, a traditional bas-
tion of anti-Israel rhetoric, were
filled recently with over 700 of
Israel's friends, leading one Arab
diplomat to declare that "the UN
is being invaded by the Zionists."
The Nov. 10 Conference on Israel,
Zionism and the United Nations
was held on the tenth anniversary
of the infamous General Assembly
resolution equating Zionism with
The 1975 resolution, which
labeled Zionism "a form of racism
and racial discrimination," was
passed by 72 to 35 with 32 absten-
tions. Support came from the
Soviet bloc (with the exception of
Romania) and Arab blocs along
with many of the "non-aligned"
In a recent speech at the United
Nations' 40th anniversary, Presi-
dent Reagan called the resolution
"a total inversion of morality."
And he sent a message to the con-
ference pledging his support for
"the removal of this blot from the
United Nations' record."
Last year, both the House and
the Senate passed a resolution
which repudiated the Zionism-
racism resolution and called upon
legislatures in other democratic
countries to do the same.
The conference was co-
sponsored by the Israeli Mission
to the United Nations and the
Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations.
Participants included former and
current UN ambassadors from the
United States, Israel, Ireland, and
Costa Rica (nations which had
fought against the resolution's
Benjamin Netanyahu, chief
Israeli delegate to the world body,
stressed the significance of the

a whole people from the rest of

Vernon A.-Walters, the United
States representative to the UN,
referred to the resolution as "an
obscenity, a falsehood, and a
slander of mammoth proportion."
He reaffirmed America's refusal
to sit in a General Assembly that
excludes Israel. Walters insists
that "an attack on Zionism is an
attack on Western values
Jews, who have suffered from real
and deadly racism and an*'

that the anniversary "marked the

rights ... nor is anyone a greater
enemy of racism than the Jewish
Rep. Major Owens (D-N.Y.), a
member of the Congressional

that the observance be a "reaffir-

Walters noted that "the General

told MBit that opponents of the

Soviet Jewry Update
Less Than Two Lines Devoted to
Human Rights in Joint Statement
By TAMAR LEVY
And EDWIN EYTAN
GENEVA (JTA) The United
States and the Soviet Union
issued a joint statement at the end
of a tw
President Reagan and Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev which
contained a one-and-a-half line
reference to human rights and, by
implication, Jewish emigration.
The statement said that the two
leaders "agreed on the impor-
tance of resolving humanitarian
cases in the spirit of cooperation."
American sources here said
Reagan and other members of the
American delegation raised this
subject on several occasions.
However Secretary of State
George Shultz and other uniden-
tified American officials refused
to supply the slightest details on
the human rights issue, causing
speculation that the Soviets must
have been highly sensitive to this
The only public mention of the
issue of Soviet Jewry was during
an imprompty 45-minute face-to-
face exchange between the Rev.
Jesse Jackson and Gorbachev.
The militant civil rights leader,
who also addressed Gorbachev on
a number of other subjects, press-
ed the reluctant Kremlin chief on
the Soviet Jewry issue. Gorbachev
responded by noting that "Jews
are part of the Soviet people,"
that they "are fine people ...
very talented people" and that
"the so-called problem of Jews in
the Soviet Union does not exist."
Five Jewish Activists
Arrested at Summit Talks
Leaders of a number of national
Jewish organizations in the U.S.
praised Jackson for his appeal to
Gorbachev and criticized the
Soviet leader for obfuscation,
evasiveness and deception.
The joint U.S.-USSR statement
also said that the two countries
recognized "that exchanges of
view on regional issues on the ex-
pert level have proven useful" and
"agreed to continue such ex-
changes on a regular basis."
Shultz later said that these
meetings will be at expert level
but also at the level of the two
countries' Foreign Ministers.
Meetings between the Secretary
of State and the Soviet Foreign
Minister are provided for by the
joint statement. Shultz and Soviet
Foreign Minister Edouard
Shevardnadze are expected to
hold regular meetings in the

GENEVA (JTA) Five Jewish
activists were arrested during the

office of Aeroflot, the Soviet
airline, were later ordered

They had been charged with
criminal trespass and damage to
property. But the magistrate ap-
pointed to examine the case in a
pre-trial hearing decided there
was "no case" for the five to

their immediate release, they

term Jewish prisoner, Anatoly
During the sit-in, prayers were
chanted along with the Russian
word for freedom, svoboda, a
word Reagan claimed recently did
not exist in the Soviet vocabulary.
Weiss blew a shofar.
Many more Jewish activists
from uie U.S., Israel and other j
countries, including former
prisoners like Mendelevich, con-
tinued' to protest the treatment of
Soviet Jews despite a Swiss ban
on public demonstrations during
the summit meeting. They heckled
Soviet speakers at press con-
ferences, distributed leaflets and
petitions and attempted, unsuc-
cessfully, to present letters to
Gorbachev and to his wife, Raisa.
Avital Sharansky tried to hand
a letter to Raisa Gorbachev asking
for her husband's release and the
right of all Soviet Jews to
emigrate. She appealed to her as
"one woman to another" to in-
tercede on behalf of Anatoly
Meanwhile, the Union of Coun-
cils for Soviet Jewry of
Washington, D.C., which opened a
temporary office here for the
duration of the summit, sent its
own appeal to Reagan and Gor-
bachev not to avoid dealing with
the issue of Jewish emigration
from the USSR.
According to some observers,
the pressure and heckling by
Jewish activists became so intense
that Soviet officials were forced to
limit attendance at press con-
ferences despite their desire for
maximum media coverage.

The Women's Division Awareness Seminars have started off on
a very positive note. More than 125 women attended the Metro
Central's First Seminar at Orangebrook Country Club where Dr.
Tamara Cohen spoke on "Sex and the Huppah."
We now know that when G-d made man he wasn't entirely
satisfied with the situation and for that reason tried to improve it
by making woman. We are here not to follow man, but to help him
in anyway he or we want.
Dr. Cohen recommended reading "Jewish and Female" by
Susan Weidman Schneider, who will be a guest speaker at the
Dec. 9 Women's Division program. Her topic will be "Jewish and
The Jewish Woman, the Jewish Mother, has become the
stereotype of all stereotypes in present-day American Literature.
What is it about the Jewish female that has made her become
satirized and the butt of many jokes and remarks, such as in Port-
noy's Complaint. It harps back to a misunderstanding that may
not be clearly perceived by those outside the cultural aspect of the
Jewish community. Some women do carry it a little too far, some
smother their children and some use it for their own gains. But
the fact still remains that for the Jewish Woman love is the cen-
tral theme. It is she who teaches the next generation the ethics
and morals of our people. It is she who teaches the next genera-
tion what it means to be Jewish and most important it is she who
teaches the next generation that they must Remain Jewish. So in
spite of the stereotypes and the jokes, that quality that we call the
Jewish Woman is something fine and good and will insure the sur-
vival of our people.

leadership, Temple Sinai has
established such new and in-

Temple Sinai has also the good
fortune to have Misha Alexan-

The Home Start program is

of course, for Hanukkah.
The eight-day Hanukkah holi-

about home start. "Nothing is left
to chance," siad Mrs. Ross, who
called the program a "delightful

very own holiday mail. Each
delivery is keyed to an important
date in the Jewish year. Eacfc*
package has stories, games, and
things to make. It is fun. But more
importantly, it is designated to
subtly teach the child some basic
elements of Judaism and the cen-
tral place of the family within that
tradition. For parents who do not
have the requisite skills, Home
Start provides them. For parents
who once knew how, but forgot,
Home Start reminds them.
An exciting element of Home^

that there is no deadline for join-

Missions to Washington
Help Improve Relations
By MORRIS J. AMITAY
Increasingly, more American
Jewish organizations are holding
their large annual meetings here
in Washington. But another less
visible phenomenon in recent
years smaller "missions" to
Washington from cities all over
the country is also having a
i significant impact.
The American Jewish com-
munity's political activism is pro-
bably second to none but there
is nothing quite like coming to the
nation's capital and seeing for
oneself why and how the Potomac
now ranks with the Jordan as
Israel's defense line.
One can read two or three daily
newspapers, a local Jewish com-
munity publication such as this
" one, and subscribe to the
Jerusalem Post and the Near East
Report but still gain a great
deal by physically being in
Washington and meeting and
hearing from the key players who
shape U.S. foreign policy in the
Nowhere can this be felt more
acutely by comparing a briefing at
the State Department from a
Near East Bureau Deputy Assis-
tant Secretary with meetings on
Capitol Hill. The pro-Arab bias of
the State Department officials
permeates the institution. It is
f reflected in their cold, decidedly
followed by evasive answers to
direct questions. The atmosphere
on "the hill" is just the opposite
as most representatives and
Senators express strong pro-
Israel sentiments and tend to view
the Arab-Israel conflict in less
complex, but essentially accurate
terms "who's with us and who's
The obvious enthusiasm, ac-
tivism and commitment displayed
by participants in the missions as
they meet with their elected
representatives has a positive
reinforcing effect on the pro-
Israel views of the legislators. At
the same time constituents get a
better appreciation of the wide
range of issues any Represen-
tative or Senator has to deal with
each day. Only then can they ap-
preciate the importance of the op-
portunity they are getting to
educate someone who will be
voting on aid and arms issues vital
to Israel's security.
A Representative or Senator
from Texas is genuinely impress-
ed when a federation mission from
San Antonio, for example, com-
posed of lawyers, educators, doc-
tors and businessmen take the
time to come to Washington to
call and to pledge their own
tangible support for Israel. This is
not the same as a visiting out-of-
town group representing a com-
pany in their Congressional
District, or a trade association
where the bottom line is private
gain. In the case of a UJA mission
the participants are giving of
themselves in support of a cause
the security and survival of
Israel, an ally of the United
States, whose well-being is in the
best interests of the United
This is an argument that not
every special interest group seek-
ing to influence Congress can
The succession of visits to
Washington these past four years
has been instrumental in
demonstrating grass roots sup-
port for increased aid levels for
Israel and in slowing down the
sales of sophisticated U.S.
weapons to Israel's enemies.
By gaining a better awareness
of how policy is made in
Washington, the visitors are also
becoming better informed citizens
who help increase the level of
political sophistication of their
As Israel's most important and
powerful friend, United States'
policies toward Israel and the en-
tire region assume life and death
proportions for Israel. That is why
Israel's "secret weapons" com-
mitted, dedicated American Jews
must continue to come to
Washington in greater numbers
to become better informed and
thereby become more effective in
promoting what they believe in.
So if you haven't yet please pay
us a visit soon. And if you have,
you should not need much convin-
cing to come again.

Profiles in Courage:
The Refuseniks of Russia
University of Miami
Professor of International
and Middle East Studies
The dramatic impact can only
be felt by directly experiencing
the event. The father, a young up-
coming scientist and Soviet
Jewish refusenik, readmits me to
the family's one-room apartment,
turns on the light, and across the
room in bunk beds along the wall,
fast asleep, are the six- and two-
year-old daughters. A wholesome
beauty exuded from the two
youngsters as yet unaware of the
tortuous events that surround
their persecuted family life in the
On my first entry into the apart-
ment that evening, before the
youngsters' bedtime, I was over-
whelmed by the setting. An entire
family life of four human beings
was crowded into this single
room. The bunk beds clung to the
wall that also had the lone window
in the room. Beneath the window
was a table used as the young
scientist's work desk. It also serv-
ed as their kitchen eating table.
On the opposite wall, sitting on
the parent's sleeper couch, I was
entertained graciously during the
evening. Local wine, coffee con-
tributed by foreign visitors, and
baked goods represented a
generous outpouring of total
gratitude for the precious time
devoted to them. What they
shared with me was not surplus
but their scarce daily fare. It was
impossible not to feel guilty. A re-
jection would have assaulted the
refusenik's fundamental dignity.
On the other side of the door en-
trance was the small refrigerator
and tiny two-burner stove. The
wall to the left had a combination
panty and book shelves. On my
right, as 1 sat talking to the fami-
ly, I noticed the semblance of a
china closet and containerized
clothes closet (right out of the
1920s). All the family valuables
were on display in these two com-
partments. A few children's toys
sat in the middle of the room. Life
seemed to thrive in this
16-by-16-foot impeccably clean
and thoroughly organized room.
The six-year-old had already
partaken in a remarkable act that
day when she joined her
courageous mother, wearing a
black T-shirt emblazed in silver
lettering with "New York City,"
in openly meeting an American
from abroad at the Metro station.
Although the shirt was intended
to facilitate recognition, it was a
Ik>IH act of disdain for Russian
society in the midst of an
officially-sponsored vitrolic anti-
American campaign, unly a
month before the American consul
in Leningrad had been attacked
by three KGB agents after
visiting a Soviet refusenik. It was
fortunate I knew nothing of this
until I left Leningrad (and the
Soviet Union). Aside from
American high visibility while
traveling about Moscow and Len-
ingrad, the event might have in-
timidated me from visiting
refuseniks, as has happened with
other foreign visitors.
AH Americans can attest to the
ease with which they are iden-
tified by the ordinary Russian. It
is reflected in their sizing you up
from a distance, casting their eyes
downward glumly or deliberately
avoiding you when approaching
close up. Other evidences are the
cautious, daily solicitations for
American jeans, athletic shoes,
small appliances, or even black
marketeers seeking to exchange
Russian rubles for dollars. The lat-
ter acitvity is a dangerous game
since it can entail deliberate en-
trapment by Soviet authorities,
especially during the 1984 anti-
American campaign period.
By meeting me at the station,
dressed as she was, the refusenik
wife, the daughter of a professor
of Marxism who refuses to grant
her permission to migrate, was
audaciously announcing to
everyone that she and her hus-
band had opted to hear about the
outside world of ideas and events
from a foreigner. Not only
refuseniks, but all Russians suffer
daily news scarcities and distor-
tions. When she brazenly ap-
proached me in front of a large
Metro audience and asked me in a
heavy accent "You from Miami,
U.S.A.," I had a powerful glimpse
into the intensity of convictions of
this special breed of people. She
was intent on escorting me, the
self-evident American stranger,
almost protectively through public
street after street, with everyone
watching, to their one-room apart-
ment. What an unexpected joy as
the little doll-like youngster walk-
ed between her mother and I,
holding our hands softly and
unassumedly. I was filled with
emotion just watching her skip
along, this smiling and unsuspec-
ting child caught up in one of life's
modern day tragedies. Older
Jewish children are not so for-
tunate. To exude such a bubbling
personality and then for all of us
to walk into that one room that
conveyed the image of a cage, if
not a large prison cell, for four
human beings, was to understate
it, a profound and traumatic
Despite this setting, here were
four ebullient, accommodating, in-
teracting and giving people
managing under incredible
After several other refuseniks
showed up, making our gathering
either legally questionable, or at
least politically undesirable by
government standards, we talked
at length. I found myself giving a
monologue on world affairs, on
events we Americans take for
granted as daily and routine fun-
damentals. They questioned, they
joked, they commented, they gave
undivided attention to every little
detail. I often found myself having
to elaborate what seemed a minor
point that seemed ancient and ob-
vious history for me, an
Data gaps and deficiencies were
quite remarkable given the high
level of intellectual curiosity I
found among the refuseniks and
the exceptionally informed net-
work of information they possess-
ed about internal Soviet
developments. Within the initial
24 hours of my first stop in
Moscow, I was authoritatively in-
formed that Sakharov had begun
a hunger strike to force Soviet
authorities to grant his wife, Y.
Bonner, the opportunity to go
abroad for special medical atten-
tion, both inadequate and
unavailable in the Soviet Union.
Despite the 250-mile distance gap
and confinement of the Sakharovs
in Gorky, the network of contacts
came up with minute details that
eventually were disseminated to
the West and produced a major
reaction to the Soviet persecution
of the couple. Once again the
refuseniks had proven the sen-
sitivity of the Soviet regime to
publicity and foreign reaction pat-
tern to their abuse of people
within their jurisdiction.
Considering the one-sided
polemic of the radio World Press
Service (English), Tass each mor-
ning and the all-day Russian TV
fare propagating the evils and
brutality of the United States,
refuseniks remain one of the few
groups that resist these fulmina-
tions out of sheer abuse and
mistreatment by the regime. Yet,
on occasions, as I found out, the
overpowering nature of the Soviet
media monopoly and repetitive
assertions is sufficient to distort
the refuseniks information base
and interpretation of outside
events. The deep cultural imprints
of Russian distrust of the outside
world would crop up in conversa-
tion, even while castigating Soviet
misbehavior somewhere. This was
most apparent in discussions per-
taining to Afghanistan (of which
little to nothing accurate was
known), China and Middle East
events, where Russian explana-
tions were often accepted as part
of some "conspiracy theory"
directed against the motherland.
They found it difficult to drop all
Russian values while
simultaneously undertaking a
break with the society. This is why
the critical stress on a Jewish
identity is all the more important.

A discarded value system needs
replacement and reinforcement
by another system if a person
wishes to survive and ultimately
thrive. It was logical to expect
that Jews by birth who
rediscovered their origins and
that Christian dissenters, also
found in considerable numbers in
Leningrad, would emphasize their
own value systems, to the
displeasure of the Soviet regime.
In each case the Soviet authorities
view alternative or pluralistic
values as competitive value
systems to those officially espous-
ed by the regime. Jewish values
are considered such a dire threat
that it produces a fierce response
from ostracism, to job
dismissals, to peer pressure
castigation, to not so public trials,
to outright physical threat and
assaults,' to imprisonment, to
displacement (popularly known as
internal exile) to mental

based suspicions, negative views
of strangers and a paranoid fear
of outside values.
*- Interesting insights abound as a
result of my visit. I can only touch
upon a few. The anti-American
campaign caught me by surprise.
It was both systematic and well
orchestrated, but only discernible
to a conscious and deliberate
observer with some background in
Russian affairs and language.
Tourists are unaware unless they
spend time on radio-TV and the
press, rather than a prescribed
and largely controlled itinerary.
I was astounded at the "disin-
formation" campaign that accus-
ed America of large-scale troop in-
tervention in Nicaragua and link-
ed the Grenada invasion as a
justification for so-called "defen-
sive" Soviet behavior in
Afghanistan. The brutal descrip-
tions of our behavior were
outright fabrications on top of the
initial lies. But the Soviet
^ citizenry, lacking alternative
sources, was unable to disprove or
contest the state's allegations.
Though an abysmal perfor-
mance in its own right, "disinfor-
mation" has a devastating
spillover impact on the refuseniks.
Jews are labelled as dangerous
"cosmopolitans" or Zionists, mak-
ing them automatic allies of the
United States and West threaten-
ing the motherland. At a
minimum it means the ordinary
Russian citizen is insensitive to
the plight of the persecuted Soviet
Jews. More frighteningly, Rus-
,m sians agitated by the virulent anti-
American campaign, turn much of
their anger against the
defenseless Jewish refusenik,
viewed as an extension or resident
expression of the dangerous ex-
ternal enemy. With a simple twist
of media exploitation, an ever-
present anti-Semitic tendency
from past history, is merged with
the anti-American campaign and
unleashed on the Jewish
>** The curiosity seeking or pro-
Soviet American tourist is com-
pletely divorced from these ac-
tivities. Instead, they are sub-
jected to the propaganda of the
"Revolution" and the "workings
of the communist system" by the
Intourist Guides. The ritualistic
propaganda, which I have com-
pared with previous visitors,
typically plays up the heroic sup-
port of the Bolshevik Revolution
by the sailors aboard the Aurora
cruiser (then anchored on the
Neva R. in Leningrad) and com-
pletely omits the Kronstadt
sailor's revolt against the
Bolsheviks. Or the impression
constantly offered the American
tourist is that the Bolshevik
Revolution overthrew a reac-
tionary Tsarist monarchy rather
f than a Provisional Government of
Socialists and Liberals that had
replaced the autocracy some time
The specific campaign against
the Jewish refuseniks has taken
many forms. To the outside world
the Soviet authorities (Gromyko
and Gorbachev recently) proclaim
^, all the Jews that sought to leave
, ^S^l have already gone, despite the
best available data indicating
400,000 currently and openly are
seeking emigration. Considering
there are between 2-3 million
Jews in the USSR, this figure only
addresses the first layer of the
potential Jewish migrants, no less
the issue of other interested and
dissenting groups in the USSR
(Baltic nationalities, Volga Ger-
mans, Christian sects, etc.).
Internally the Soviets belie their
assertion of Jewish contentment
by the recent intensified cam-
paign of threats, intimidations
and harassments of refuseniks. As
of July 1, 1984, the simple act of a
Soviet citizen helping any foreign
visitor obtain transportation (a
taxi or train?) after a visit is now
considered a criminal activity.
When I refelct on those occasions
when this is exactly what occur
red, I shudder at the implications.
The vagaries of interpretaion at-
tached to regulations, for which
the authorities are notorious,
makes for even greater uncertain-
ties in the future, a very desirable
outcome for the Soviet regime.
The preoccupation with Hebrew
language literature and religious
materials on entry is nothing
short of paranoid and obsessive by
Soviet customs agents. The arrest
of teachers and breakup of
religious study sessions indicate
the pronounced fear the regime
has of alternative or a plurality of
Refuseniks often find
themselves in a Catch-22 situation
because of government regula-
tions and policies. One young
Jewish scientist related a typical
story. Upon filing for permission
to migrate to Israel, he was
dismissed from his position at a
scientific institute. With the ob-
vious classification as a new
refusenik, no less labelled as a Jew
by his internal passport,
everywhere he applied in his pro-
fession was met by refusals. At
the same time, he was confronted
by Soviet regulations that specify
a member of society must be gain-
fully employed or else they will be
viewed as a "social parasite."
After approximately four months
failure to obtain employment,
local police authorities can arrest
such,, a person as an anti-social
criminal. The regime had placed
him in a totally contradictory
situation. Confronted by the ob-
vious dilemma, the young scientist
boldly went to the police station in
his district, and after surprising
the police chief, pronounced
himself ready for work, any kind
of work, including the most
menial and degrading labor. At
local levels this work is performed
by the numerous alcoholics and
the criminal elements of society.
The stunned police chief respond-
ed by saying he would have to
think about it. By the time I
departed the Soviet Union, the
young sicentist had about 30 days
left before his deadline was up.
Assuredly, he had not heard from
the local police chief.

As a matter of concern for the
Jewish refuseniks, and out of per-
sonal/professional curiosity I was
quite concerned with the "food
situation" in the two largest
Soviet cities, Moscow and Len-
ingrad. Prior to leaving the
United States, I was aware of our
government's announced projec-
tions of a poor 190 million tons
grain harvest for Soviet
agriculture. The perceptive inter-
nal intelligence network of
refuseniks viewed my figures as
too high. Ultimately they proved
to be correct, as the more ac-
cepted data indicated a 1984
harvest of 170-175 million tons.
Corroboration in crude form came
by visitations to food stores and
butcher shops. The most
remarkable comments by the
refuseniks pertained to the con-
trasts between the departed Yuri
Andropov regime and K.
Chernenko's ascendancy to
preeminence. Despite the inten-
sive dislike for KGB's Andropov,
the refuseniks indicated that his
pressure for increased and im-
proved productivity had led to a
15 percent rise in goods on store.
Considerable speculation also
revolved around the question of
preferable approaches to dealing
with the Soviet regime namely
"quiet diplomacy" or "intensive
publicity." Basically, they knew
the answer themselves but
wanted to discuss it with a social
scientist in open fashion. They
knew circumstances varied accor-
ding to specific developments, but
only consistent publicity compell-
ed Soviet responses. As the con-
sensus concluded, letting up for
one moment conveys the wrong
message to the Soviets. They
would simply conclude they had
outlasted their critics.
The most provocative discussion
revolved around the activities of
Dr. Bernard Lown, a consistent
visitor to the Soviet Union on
behalf of the "anti-nuclear physi-
cians movement." As scientists,
the refuseniks were particularly
disturbed with him on three
counts. One, they were upset at
the failure of Dr. Lown's segment
of the scientific community to visit
them as a way of dignifying their
cause, holding out hope, and shar-
ing scientific courtesies. Second,
they were distressed at Lown's
unwillingness to make representa-
tions in his meetings with Soviet
leaders against the repression.
Finally, they had difficulty in com-
prehending Lown's failure to deal
with the moral issue of "human
rights" in consistent fashion.
Many of the refusenik scientists
were committed to ultimate
nuclear disarmament or arms con-
trol policies for the Great Powers.
The right of the human race to
guarantee its survival was part of
the "human rights" agenda that
guaranteed them the right to per-
sonal beliefs and migration. I was
expected, as an academician, as
an American, as a moralist, to ex-
plain the peculiarities of Lown's
behavior. My answer was that of a
political scientist that has dealt
with the phenomenon as part of
socio-political movements in
American society. The answer
was: "They engage in selective
No single exposition can do full
justice to the horrendous scenario
being enacted by the Soviet
regime against a remarkable
group of people. Much of the
publicity focusses on distinguish-
ed personalities under durress.
Yet there are manv more oreinary
people who daily continue a heroic
struggle against the machinations
of an all-powerful and encompass-
ing totalitarian state. The ex-
posure of Soviet violations of
human rights, demanding their
right to leave, and outside help is
all that stands between their total
subordination and ultimate disap-
pearance as a distinct group
Jews and human beings.

Israel's Unsung Heroes
Bu FERN ALLEN
Special to the Federation
JERUSALEM A bag left in a
bookstore suddenly draws the at-
tention of a clerk. "Whose is
this?" she yells frantically.
When no one answers, she
quickly calls the police. Within
minutes bomb-squad sappers ar-
rive. Police evacuate the premises
so that the explosives experts can
examine the suspicious object.
Like many other calls the bomb
squad receives, this turns out to
be a false alarm just a forgetful
customer who will later sheepishly
return to inquire about the bag.
But in light of the tragic terrorist
attacks Israel has experienced in
the past, no one wants to take a
chance with an unattended object.
After a bombing, the Jerusalem
sapper unit is besieged with calls
from citizens and security guards
who have spotted suspicious ob-
jects such as packages on the
street, a bicycle left unattended
for a long time, a car that hadn't
been moved for days, an unusual
item in a garbage can or an at-
tache case left on a bus.
"We don't want a bomb to ex-
plode even once a year," said
Shlomo, commnder of the sapper
unit in Jerusalem. "We have
selective activities from time to
time. That way the enemy never
knows where we are.
"This is an effort on everyone's
part, because we can't check
everything. We try to find the
middle road so that people can live
normally. We don't want to put
superficial impositions on the
public, but we do want to do all we
can to prevent injury."
Public awareness has paid off
many times. Once a man
discovered a bomb inside a loaf of
bread. He knew immediately that
the food was suspicious, because it
was found during Passover, when
bread is scarce in Israel.
Bombs aren't always planted by
Arab terrorists. About half the ex-
plosives are planted by local Jews
or Aral I'mm the criminal under-
bid. The bomb squad can often
determine who planted the bomb
by an; sing whom it was meant
"Criminals are out to get so-
meone specific. Arab terrorists
plant bombs in public places like a
bus where they don't know who
will be hurt," Shlomo said. Either
way. sappers are exposed to the
With the help of technology,
sappers are able to reduce the risk
by using a robot to dismantle most
bombs. But many times they have
to dispense with the robot because
it simply cannot reach very high
or low places. The sappers then
perform their race against time to
save their lives as well as the lives
It's a job that requires intensive
training and steady nerves. Of the
100 recruits who begin each five-
mnth course, only 20 make it into
the police sapper unit. Most sap-
pers join after their army service
where they usually have had ex-
perience dismantling explosives.
They generally stay in the unit for
three to four years until they
marry and establish families.
"Once a sapper gets married, he
usually decides that he doesn't
want to do this any more because
he is afraid he might do it too long
and then he won't be able to do
anything else," Shlomo noted.
"It's also rare that someone
leaves a good job to join the bomb
squad. They don't want to look for
Commanding officers are sen-
sitive to the pressure sappers and
their families are under. Their
hours are long six shifts a week,
with at least one overnight shift
and two evening shifts a month.
Although their pay, about $500 a
month, is high in relation to most
Israeli salaries, it doesn't compen-
sate for the danger they en-
counter every time they hold a
"We'll notice if someone isn't
relaxed enough to work properly.
We won't let them continue to
work," Shlomo said.
He noted that during the past
year four sappers have been
removed from their jobs because
they couldn't take the pressure.
"I'm glad we haven't had to do
this often," he said.
Sappers wear protective
headgear, vests and leggings. At
the scene of a bomb scare, the
regular police are in charge of
clearing the area of curious
onlookers so sappers can concen-
trate on the technical aspects of
dismantling the bomb.
During the past few years there
have been eight injuries in the
Jerusalem bomb squad. Two sap-
pers were killed when bombs they
were working on exploded.
While having a son work as a
sapper is not what most Jewish
mothers dream their children will
do, sappers' families generally ac-
cept their decision to work on the
"No one is very satisfied with it,
but they make peace with it,"
He noted that in order to com-
fort the families, the sappers hold
many social gatherings so that the
bomb squads feel like family units.
The families are also briefed on
precautions sappers take so that
they feel involved in the work.
Despite these gestures, the ten-
sion of having a loved one work as
a sapper remains. But as long as
terrorist and criminal bombs re-
main a bitter reality of Israeli life,
someone's son or husband will
have to be on hand to dismantle

CJF General Assembly
Jewish Leaders Debate
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Whether it is dangerous for the
Jewish community to be con-
sidered a single-issue group,
primarily interested in Israel, was
debated at a session of the 54th
General Assembly of the Council
of Jewish Federations.
The issue was discussed before a
packed standing room crowd of
delegates to the Assembly by
Hyman Bookbinder, director of
the American Jewish Committee's
Washington office; Marshall
Breger, former White house
liaison to the Jewish community;
and Thomas Dine, director of the
America Israel Public Affairs
"Support for Israel is indeed the
highest single priority on the
Jewish agenda and nobody should
feel the slightest embarassment
or awkwardness or guilt in pro-
claiming this priority,"
But, he stressed, "Israel's cause
is in substantially good shape to-
day not because of the two-and-a-
half percent of Americans who are
Jewish and have demonstrated
their support for Israel, but
because another 50 or 60 or 70
percent of non-Jewish Americans
have manifested this support."
For this reason, Bookbinder
argued, Jews have to support
issues for the general good, not
only because they are right, but by
doing so the Jewish community
gains sympathy and allies for its
own causes, including Israel.
But Breger, now chairman of
the U.S. Administrative Con-
ference, charged that Jews want
"guilt-free political activity" in
which they can participate in the
political process "but not with
people we don't like." He said
Jews want to take moral stands
rather than engage in practical
In addition, Breger said that
Jews diminish their political
leverage by "not focusing on
priorities." He said that when
Jewish groups meet with a
political leader they bring up
whatever issue is of immediate im-
portance. He said making
everything a "life and death
issue" confuses politicians and the
Jewish community must learn to
He said when Jews contribute to
a Political Action Committee
(PAC) for Israel, politicians who
receive the funds understand this.
But they do not understand when
they then add a host of other
issues, according to Breger. He
suggested contributing to pro-
Israel PACs and if other issues
are important to an individual, he
should split up his money among
PACs focusing on those issues."
Bookbinder rejected the "guilt-
free" charge. He said Jewish
tradition has always been not only
to help fellow Jews but others as
well. He noted that general issues
impact on Jews, too, pointing out
that a cut in the social security
cost-of-living allowance would ef-
fect thousands of elderly Jews.
Dine said that a IPAC's job is to
focus on the issue of Israel and
how other foreign policy issues ef-
fect the Middle East and the peace
He said support for Israel has
grown in Congress and noted the
overwhelming majority in the
Senate and House who supported
delaying an arms sale to Jordan
until March 1 and are ready to re-
ject the sale if no progress is made
in the peace process.
Dine noted that in the upcoming
1986 Senate and House elections
both the Democrats and
Republicans "want us on their
side. It looks like- the gate to the
country club has finally come
Reiterating his often made call
for Jews to be politically active on
the local, state and national level,
Dine said Jews can demonstrate
their political clout by rewarding
Breger urged Jews to concen-
trate on winning new friends
especially in the South and
Southwest and among the Chris-
tian right. He said instead of at-
tacking conservative Senators
and Congressmen for their views,
Jews should try to meet with
them. He said they will have a bet-
ter understanding of Jewish con-
cerns and they can be moved on
issues, although probably not all
the way many Jews would want.
Bookbinder said that he
welcomed the support for Israel
from such conservatives as Sen.
Jesse Helms (R., N.C.) who
formerly were not favorable to the
Jewish State. But he said at the
same time, Jews should not desert
the many liberals and Democrats
who for years were the mainstay
of support for Israel in Congress.
In elections, anyone considered
"to be hostile or even indifferent
to Israel's needs cannot expect
any Jewish support," Bookbinder
said. But, he added, while a can-
didate must be pro-Israel, he must
also be for other issues important
to the Jewish community.
"We should not be in the
business of discouraging pro-
Israeli aspirants from running
against an incumbent solely on the
ground that the incumbent is pro-
Israel," Bookbinder stated. There
have been reports that several
persons considering races against
Sens. Robert Dole (R., Kans.) and
Robert Packwood (R., Ore.) have
been discouraged from running by
pro-Israel PACs for this reason.
Dine said being pro-Israel was
the sole criterion AIPAC used in

Dig Uncovers Gold Hoard
TEL AVIV (JTA) An an-
cient synagogue collection box
containing some 500 coins, half of
them gold and the rest bronze hid-
den for well over 1,000 years has
been uncoverd during an ar-
chaeological dig of the ancient set-
tlement of Merot in eastern
Archaeologists, who have kept
the find secret for many months
until completion of the current dig
and removal of the coins for ex-
hibition in a museum, declined to
put a value on the unique find. The
gold hoard was found in a collec-
tion box carved in the floor of a
storeroom attached to the side of
the synagogue. The hole was plug-
ged by a close-fitting stone which
apparently saved the collection
from being plundered through out
The synagogue had apparently
been damaged several times by
earthquakes, which presumably
led to abandonment of the town
an its place of worship. The ar-
chaeologists believe that the
treasury had been used to pay for
reconstruction work, as building
materials brought to the site but
not yet used were found nearby.
The synagogue site is well pro-
tected now. It is in an IDF ar-
tillery firing range, and special
permission is required to visit it.

Hadassah Renews Ties
In Developing Nations
Professor Chanan Zauberman,
who heads the Eye Department of
Hadassah's Medical Center in
Jerusalem, recently addressed na-
tional leaders, and brought some
In the treatment of high
myopia, which affects 3 percent of
Israel's population, the use of a
special instrument removes a
piece of the cornea, which is then
shaped and sutured, to improve vi-
sion among the young, as well as
Hadassah doctors have also in-
troduced the technology of
treating cataracts in babies. The
cataracts are removed, and a new
lens is implanted. This has been
done with adults, but it is a
pioneering process with the in-
fants. At first it was thought the
eye would grow and implants
would have to be changed from
time to time. However, it was
found there is no need to do so
because the eye models itself
around the lens.
For years, Hadassah has been
recognized as an important center
of learning for developing coun-
tries. After the 1967 war many of
these governments cut off rela-
tions with Israel because of Arab
blackmail threatening to stop
oil shipments if they did not break
relations. Now they are again re-
questing assistance from
Hadassah Medical Center.
In the past, trainees stayed 5 to
6 years. Tanzania, Ethiopia and
Lesotho have doctors in their eye
clinics who were trained by
Hadassah. They can speak
Hebrew, and are in constant touch
with the Eye Department in
Despite the difficult economy,
Hadassah is once again expanding
its training courses with the help
of the Foreign Office and Interna-
tional Foundations. One large
department is in Liberia on the
west coast and the President of
Liberia himself requested Israel
to renew ties with them. The
other is in Swaziland.
Dr. Zauberman said he would be
going to Kenya where the British
are giving Hadassah Hospital the
money to operate an eye clinic
In the very near future the doc- w
tors of Hadassah's Eye Depart-
ment will open a clinic in Malawi
also with British financial sup-
port. The Royal Commonwealth
Society for the Blind is giving the
money in collaboration with the
Trainees from countries in-
cluding Mexico, Santa Lucia and
Columbia are also being trained at
Hadassah's Eye Department. Ad-
ditional help from International
Foundations have made this possi-
ble. The need for these doctors is
therefore being met with Israel's
and Hadassah's assistance. These
trainees return to their own coun-
tries and fill a growing need there
for doctors and eye eye clinics.
