Moscow Jewish Center Opens
The Jewish Cultural Center
that opened in Moscow,
though certainly welcome, has
not garnered rave reviews
among Soviet Jews or their
supporters in the West.
But those who want some-
thing Jewish of substance
in the Soviet Union, are quick
to acknowledge this center as
a first step.
"At the moment, it's all
they've got," said Glenn Rich-
ter, national coordinator of the
Student Struggle for Soviet
But Richter and others
pointed out one ominous note,
that the much-reviled Anti-
Zionist Committee of the
Soviet Public has not been
disbanded, despite promises
that it was.
This fact tempered the opti-
mism over the center and of
the recent articles in the
Soviet press supporting Jew-
ish life and aspirations.
Last week, the Soviet Com-
munist Party weekly, Argu-
ments and Facts, published a
long article by the co-chairman
of the Anti-Zionist Committee,
Gen. David Dragunsky, attack-
ing the cultural center.
Richter said last week that
"although Jewish activists in
Russia have a very small say in
this cultural center, it's far
from adequate."
But hoping that it one day
will, leaders of Soviet Jewry
groups in the United States
flocked to the opening, to rub
shoulders with foreign ambas-
sadors and refuseniks.
Yuli Edelshtein became the
first former prisoner of Zion to
return to the Soviet Union,
returning from his home in
Israel to participate in the his-
tory-making event.
Isi Leibler, vice president of
the World Jewish Congress, is
the main person responsible
for the Solomon Mikhoels Jew-
ish Cultural Center.
Both Micah Naftalin, the
executive director of the Union
of Councils for Soviet Jews,
and the group's president,
Pamela Cohen, were there, as
were Shoshana Cardin, chair-
woman of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry,
and Myrna Shinbaum, the
National Conference's out-
going director.
Shinbaum, in a telephone
conversation from Vienna,
characterized Sunday night's
event as a mixture of joy and
Shinbaum described a tumul-
tuous scene at Taganskaya
Square, in which hundreds of
people packed the inadequate
theater that was most recently
the Moscow Jewish Musical
Theater and which accommo-
dates only 300.
Outside, teeming crowds
gathered to witness history,
dancing horas and singing in
The five-hour program,
MEZUZAH IN MOSCOW. The recent opening of Moscow's first Jewish community center

which began at 5 p.m. with the

BONN (JTA) The neo-
Nazi Republican Party claims
it can block the re-election of
President Richard von Weiz-
sacker of the Federal Republic
of Germany by fielding a candi-
date of its own.
Franz Schoenhuber, chair-
man of the Republicans, said in
Munich that his party would
nominate candidates, but he
offered no names.
According to Schoenhuber,
many of the ruling Christian
Democratic Union would vote
for an alternative to von Weiz-
The CDU lost ground in the
West Berlin elections while
the Republicans won nearly
eight percent of the popular
vote, for 11 seats in the 128-
member municipal parliament.
They will also eet two seats
in Bundestag, the federal par-
liament, as of the autumn of
1990. West Berlin is repre-
sented in the Bundestag on the
basis of party strength in its
own legislature.
The Republicans, the first
neo-Nazi party ever to sit the
Bundestag, will be entitled to
participate in the vote for the
president who is chosen by the
Federal Assembly.
The Assembly is composed
of all members of the Bundes-
tag plus several members from
the various state parliaments.
Von Weizsacker has been a
popular president at home and
abroad. He has frequently
remarked on the failure of
many Germans to acknow-
ledge their guilt for the Holo-
caust or admit what they knew
was being done to the Jews
during the Nazi era.

Smith Seeks Refugee Status
For Soviet Jews
Seeking an end to the plight
of Soviet Jews waiting in Italy
to enter the U.S., Cong. Larry
Smith has written to Secretary
of State James A. Baker, urg-
ing him to do whatever is
necessary to allow all Soviet
Jews to enter this country
under refugee status visas.
Smith has also written to
Attorney General Richard L.
Thornburgh and Commis-
sioner of the U.S. Immigration
and Naturalization Service
(INS) Allan Nelson with his
Previously all Soviet Jews,
as persecuted individuals,
were automatically given "ref-
ugee status" visas, entitling
them to federal aid for trans-
portation and resettlement
costs and making them eligible
for U.S. citizenship.
As increasing numbers of
Soviet Jews, Armenians and
other minorities have received
Soviet exit visas under glas-
nost, however, the INS has
unofficially changed its long-
standing policy and, rather
than requesting additional
funds to deal with the
increased costs, has begun
denying refugee status visas to
many Jewish refuseniks.
Soviet Jews can still emi-
grate to the U.S. with "parole
status" visas. Under "parole
status," they must pay their
own transportation costs and
Cong. Larry Smith
have a written affidavit of eco-
nomic support from a sponsor
in the U.S. For some refuse-
niks, finding a financial spon-
sor in the U.S. is a difficult
task, made more so because
they are thousands of miles
away in either Rome or Mos-
cow. Although parole status
emigrants may enter the U.S.
with authority to work, it is
nearly impossible for them to
obtain American citizenship.
As a result of this new pol-
icy, emigre families are being
separated, as some members
are granted refugee status
visas while others are inexplic-
ably denied. Those who are
denied refugee visas have been
waiting in Rome to appeal
their cases.

Yad Vashem
Society President
David Blumenfeld, who has
served as executive director
for the New York Holocaust
Memorial Commission since
1983, has been named execu-
tive vice president of the Inter-
national Society for Yad
Concerns Assuaged
After Brown's Election
leading Jewish Democrats
moved swiftly to assuage con-
cern in the Jewish community
over the election of Ronald
Brown as chairman of the
Democratic Party.
They also sought to assure
Brown, who managed the Rev.
Jesse Jackson's campaign for
the presidency last year, that
as of now, he has the support
of Jewish Democrats.
Brown was elected unani-
mously by the Democratic
National Com
first black to head either major
political party.
"We offer you our congratu-
lations and our readiness to
cooperate with you in the shap-
ing of policies and strategies
that will merit the continuing
overwhelming support of Jew-
ish Americans, along with that
of all Americans," the six, all
of whom were co-chairmen of
f the National Jewish Leader-
3 ship Council in support of the
"Dukakis-Bentsen campaign,
xtold Brown.
5 They pointed out that Jews
- gave more than 70 percent of
ffl their vote to Massachusetts
gGov. Michael Dukakis in his
S campaign for the presidency as
S well as to Democratic congres-
x sional candidates.
Their message was in the
S form of a letter delivered to
Brown by Hyman Bookbinder,
s former Washington represen-
| tative of the American Jewish
S Committee and a special ad-
viser to Dukakis on Jewish
affairs during the campaign.
Although all other candi-
dates for the chairman's post
dropped off during the last six
weeks, opposition to Brown
did not only come from Jews
concerned about his role in the
Jackson campaign.
The chief opposition, partic-
ularly from Southern Demo-
cratic leaders, was that
Brown, who also worked in the
campaigns of Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass.), would pre-
sent too liberal an image.
In his acceptance speech,
Brown stressed that as chair-
man, his job is not to set policy,
but to win elections for Demo-
"I accept this responsibility
beholden to no individual,
afraid of no faction, and
pledged to no institution
except the Democratic Party
and our members," the 47-
year-old Washington lawyer
Bookbinder said that Brown
promised that the Jewish com-
munity will have complete
access to him.
"I've known Brown for over
20 years and he has always
understood the Jewish inter-
est, Jewish concerns," Book-
binder said.

Agudath Israel
Opens Soviet Wing
years of clandestine efforts on
behalf of religiously observant
Soviet Jews, Agudath Israel
has announced the official for-
mation of a member organiza-
tion in the Soviet Union.
Representatives from sev-
eral cities in the Soviet Union
gathered in Moscow last
December to sign an official
declaration of establishment.
They met with Mordechai
Neustadt, who heads the Vaad
L'Hatzolas Nidchei Yisroel
division of the world Agudath
headquarters in New York, to
discuss plans for Torah educa-
tion in the country.
Agudath first began its con-
tact with the Soviet Jewish
ba'alei teshuvah, or newly
observant, community in re-
sponse to the request of for-
mer refusenik Yosef Mende-
levich, upon his release from
the Soviet Union in 1981.
Manning, 36, were accused in
the 1980 mail bomb murder of
a secretary at a local computer
Federal prosecutors say they
have been trying to obtain the
extradition of Robert Manning
in the case since his wife was
arrested at Los Angeles Inter-
national Airport last June.
In a new development,
Assistant U.S. Attorney
Nancy Wieben Stock said that
American authorities have
lately received positive indica-
tions from the Israeli govern-
ment that Robert Manning will
be extradited.
"I see no legal barrier to the
extradition, nor has anybody
officially turned us down on
the request," Stock said.

Human Rights Report
It is an example of bitter irony that Israel's
restraint in dealing with the intifada in
the administered territories has resulted in
American recriminations.
Had the Jewish state adopted truly brutish
practices against the civil disturbance -- as in
the case elsewhere in the Arab world then
the 14-month-old uprising might well have
been contained and resolved by now.
Instead of crushing the rebellion, Israel has
attempted to deal with it. Granted, an armed
force is not necessarily trained to respond
appropriately to civilians throwing firebombs
and natural rock missiles.
Hut what needs to be stressed is that
the force meted out to IDF foot soldiers
can be deadly force, no matter the age of the
It is curious that of all the nations measured
in the newly released "Country Reports on
Human Rights Practices," Israel received the
lengthiest coverage despite the caveats of its
otherwise sterling record as the lone demo-
cratic state in that region of the world.
It should be noted that it is the very fact of
Israel's open society that leaves it vulnerable
to indictment.
Hungarian Thaw
The continuing news of a diplomatic thaw
emanating from Hungary seems to be on track
with the Soviet Union's recent posture.
In a series of announcements, the Eastern
European nation has intimated that diplo-
matic ties with Israel will be restored by late
spring or early summer. Hungary has relaxed
its exclusion of Hebrew from the school
system and now allows it to be offered in some
of Budapest's high schools on par with English
and Russian.
Additionally, the first institute for Judaic
studies in that part of the world is located at
the University of Budapest. At the only
rabbinical seminary located in the Eastern
bloc, training will be offered to potential
teachers of Judaica as well as to clergy.
Given the pariah status attached to Israel
for its refusal to negotiate with the Palestine
Liberation Organization following Yasir
Arafat's declaration which recognized Israel
and renounced terrorism, these warming
trends can only work toward Israel's benefit.

The Symbol Sanctified
The announcement last
week by European Catholic
authorities that the Carmelite
convent is being moved away
from the grounds of Auschwitz
to a nearby new center is a
constructive move in the right
In 1984, 10 Carmelite nuns
took over a former Nazi ware-
house in Auschwitz in which
Zyklon-B gas was stored for
use in gas chambers.
They converted the ware-
house into a convent to pray
for "martyrs and the uncon-
Nowhere in their fund-
raising literature did they
refer to the Nazi's massacre of
more than a million Jews in
that death camp.
Jews clearly are not opposed
to the Carmelite's prayers.
And most Jews understood the
appropriateness of their hon-
oring Polish Catholic victims
of Nazism.
But Auschwitz was built by
the Nazis for the primary pur-
pose of exterminating Euro-
pean Jews. Rather than an act
of reconciliation, the convent
became a gesture of appropria-

to a new center of prayer and

Auschwitz is a monument to
barbarism and anti-Semitism
and it must remain intact as a

Letters from our readers:
The life imprisonment sen-
tence with no chance of parole
that was imposed on Jonathan
Pollard, and the five year sen-
tence of his wife, Anne, is
unjust and without conscience.
The stench of anti-Semitism in
this case is reminiscent of the
infamous Dreyfus case.
After sentencing, Jonathan
Pollard was incarcerated in a
mental ward; then, for the past
few years, in solitary confine-
ment in a windowless cell, with
prison conditions drastically
different than other prisoners
convicted of similar crimes. Be

Anne's five year sentence
could turn out to be a death
sentence. She has been denied
necessary medical care, and
been chained hands and feet to
her bed.
In contrast: John Walker, a
naval officer, and members of
his family, spied for the Soviet
Union for 17 years. Walker
will be eligible for parole in 10
years. Sgt. Clayton Lonetree

in 10 years.
There are others who have
seriously compromised our na-
tional security. All will be eligi-

Pollard who has never been
charged with damaging U.S.
What is Pollard's 'crime'?
He gave to Israel information
which helped to save countless
lives, while Walker's crime
took lives. The information
Pollard divulged was not about
the United States. It was
information vital to Israel's
security and which, as an ally,
Israel was entitled to under
agreements with our country.
There is a vast difference
between spying for an ally and
saving lives, and spying for an
iron-door country and taking
The Pollard case cries out
for equal justice. The facts
must be re-evaluated. Both of
these tortured humans have
already more than paid for
their "crime."
The pursuit of justice is the
foundation of Judaism.

dismissed a three-year-old law-
suit brought by Jews for Jesus
against the Jewish Community
Relations Council of New
The group, which prosely-

tended it was a victim of dis-

1985, cited pamphlets distri-
buted by JCRC's Task Force
on Missionaries and Cults to
some Long Island rabbis. The
task force is chaired by Julius
The pamphlets urged the
rabbis to call on their Christian
colleagues of the clergy not to
permit Jews for Jesus to use
their facilities for Hebrew;
Christian "Passover services."
Edwards ruled that distribu-
tion of the pamphlets "consti-
tutes free speech and is not
actionable" and not illegal.

No Break With PLO
Friday, February 24, 1989/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 5
United States is not prepared
to break off its dialogue with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization, despite urging
by Israel to do so.
Secretary of State James
Baker indicated, however, that
attacks on Israeli military or
civilian targets, inside or out-
side of Israel, would deeply
trouble the Bush administra-
The State Department
apparently has decided that ;.
clash between Israeli troops
and Palestinian infiltrators a
week ago did not fit that cate-
The Israel Embassy in
Washington appealed to the
United States to break off con-
tacts established with the PLO
on Dec. 15 by former Secret-
ary of State George Shultz.
The State Department
remained non-committal over
whether the incident breached
the agreement reached with
the PLO last year.
Baker, speaking to reporters
aboard his Air Force jet, was
making his first public com-
ment on the issue. He said the
department was still in the
process of gathering informa-
tion about the episode.
"And we are not prepared to
say at this time that this con-
stitutes an action by the PLO
which would cause us to break
off the dialogue."
He added, "We made the
point that actions such as this,
directed against civilian or mil
itary targets inside or outside
of Israel, was something that
gave us trouble."
The Israelis claimed the PLO
violated its commitment to
Shultz to renounce terrorism.
They cited what they said
was an attempted terrorist
infiltration of Israel last week-
end by members of George
Habash's Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine.
Israeli forces killed five of
them in the southern Lebanon
security zone. Equipment and
documents found with the bod-
ies showed their mission was
to attack targets in Israel, the
Israelis said.
Although Habash broke with
PLO chief Yasir Arafat in
1974, he is still a member of
the PLO's executive commit-
No Roadblock to Entry
The Bush administration
affirmed its commitment to
"freedom of choice" for Jews
leaving the Soviet Union.
State Department spokes-
man Charles Redman also said
there is no review underway of.
the U.S. position that Soviet
Jews who emigrate on Israeli
visas should be free to go
somewhere else than Israel.
While noting that large num-
bers of Soviet Jews in Rome
are waiting to enter the United
States, Redman said that "no
one is being stranded" there
because U.S. immigration laws
will not grant entry.
He explained that they can
enter the United States in one
of three ways: as refugees, as
parolees or as regular immi-
grants. Since the beginning of
the fiscal year in October, the
United States has issued refu-
gee status to 4,600 Soviet
emigres and parole status to
198 others in Rome, he said.
Redman admitted that
"there are delays of process-
ing due to the unexpectedly
large numbers of Soviets per-
mitted to depart from the
But he also attributed the
backlog in Rome to the deci-
sion by some immigrants de-
nied refugee status to appeal
those decisions. Instead, they
could come to the United
States without delay if they
accepted the attorney gen-
eral's parole status, he added.
HIAS, the Hebrew Immi-
grant Aid Society, has urged
Soviet emigrants not to come
to the United States under
parole status, because it is
difficult to obtain permanent
U.S. citizenship via that route.
In addition, those who come
under parole status are not
entitled to the U.S. financial
assistance for transportation
and resettlement given to re-
HIAS believes that all Soviet
Jews meet the U.S. govern-
ment's test that refugees must

directly on the denial of refu-
gee status to some Soviet
Jews. He said the Justice
Department's Immigration

not the State Department, is

Young Israelis To Play Exhibition Tennis Matches
During the last 1 1 years,
9O.(H>0 Israeli youngsters -
representing a cross-section ol
I heir country's diverse popula-
tion have been learning to
play tennis and, in the process,
to live together.
Built anil funded by volun-
tary contributions from
the U.S., France, England,
Canada ami South Africa, the
Israel Tennis Center is a pro-
ject that has linked Jewry all
over the world with Israel, and
Israeli with Israeli.
Hungarian-Israeli Diplomacy
In sneakers and with rackets
in hand, Orthodox .lews and
Moslems meet across the nets;
newly settled Ethiopians are
matched with Roman Cathol-
ics, and Protestants play with
Reform .lews.
Virtually non-existent in
Israel more than ten years
ago. tennis is rapidly becoming
the most popular public pas
time among the young. More
than 100 public tennis courts
have been built at eight tennis
centers throughout the coun-
try, since the idea tiegan with
Ian Froman, a South African
dentist, who had .nice been a
non-plaj ing member of his
nation's Davis Cup team.
While Froman and his Amen
can and English co-founders
raised the needed funds, the
teaching end was supplied by
former Wimbledon champion
Dick Savitt, wini taught poten-
tial coaches, who would be
working at the centers.
The first Israel Tennis Cen-
ter opened in 197(1 at Ramat
Hasharon. In the first three
months. 3000 children came
and were each given eight frvi'
lessons. Then the ones with
the best eye-ball coordination
were selected. One of those
first-chosen youngsters was
Amos Mansdorf, now at age 23
Israel's top-ranked player and
number 2'.\ in the world.
Froman believes that the
current political unrest in
Israel has made tennis even
more crucial for its young peo-
ple. He explains that for any
possibility of peace youngsters
have got to learn to under-
stand each other's way of life.
He calls the tennis courts a
"common ground" on which to
mix people.
The Israeli youngsters tra-
veling throughout the U.S. this
year, as in past years, conduct
exhibitions and attend fund
raisers to keep the Israel Ten-
nis Centers going. Lessons at
the Centers are free; funding
is by voluntary private contri-

American Jews Urged To Help
JNF's Replanting Campaign
Friday, February 24, 1989/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 7
JNF To Replace Burnt Trees Three To One
Rabbi Isaac L. Swift, author,
lecturer and scholar,
addressed a recent gathering
of Jewish organizational lead-
ers at a Tu B'Shevat celebra-
tion at Jewish National Fund
(JNF) headquarters in New
York City.
The rabbi, a past vice presi-
dent of JNF and the Zionist
Federation of Australia and
New Zealand, emphasized the
historic, religious and cultural
significance of the holiday
which marks the Jewish new
year for trees.
In response to the large
number of forest fires which
plagued Israel this past year,
JNF proclaimed Tu B'Shevat
1989 as Shabbat Ha'aretz.
During the summer of 1988,
arson claimed 1.25 million
trees planted by the Jewish
people through JNF. JNF
emergency crews were called
upon to extinguish more than
1,200 fires, which consumed
over 40,000 acres, totalling
financial damage of more than
$40 million.
JNF, which has made tree
planting one of its endeavors
Bond Rate Rises
The interest rate on State of
Israel Variable Rate Issue
(VRI) Bonds has risen to 9
percent as of Feb. 1. This rate
will be paid to July 31, 1989,
and will apply to bonds pur-
chased through June 30, 1989.
The minimum initial invest-
ment must be $25,000.
In making the announce-
ment, David Sklar, South
Broward chairman of Israel
Bonds, noted that from the
first issue in Nov., 1980 until
Jan. 31, 1989, a total of
$852,703,500 has been in-
vested in VRI Bonds.
Variable Rate Bonds are
available to and are owned by
individuals; banks; insurance
companies; profit-sharing
plans; IRAs; jointly-admini-
stered pension plans; union
health and welfare funds; pri-
vate, corporate and public
foundations; corporations;
endowment funds; and cul-
tural, educational and religious
The bonds mature in 12
years. However, they may be
redeemed by an employee ben-
efit fund after three years
from date of issue and by any
other original registered
owner after five years.
Like all State of Israel
Bonds, the VRI Bonds is a
direct and unconditional obli-
gation of the State of Israel for
payment of principal and inter-
est. Proceeds from Israel
Bonds sales are invested in the
nation's economic develop-
To Settlements
stantial majority of Israelis
oppose the establishment of
new settlements in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, accord-
ing to a new poll conducted by
the Pori organization.
Among the 1,200 ques-
tioned, 49.9 percent opposed
new settlements and 32.7 per-
cent approved of diem.
While 9.9 percent had no
opinion, 7.5 percent of the
respondents said their opin-
ions were influenced by the
current situation.
The Jewish National Fund
(JNF) will plant three million
trees in Israel this year to
replace the one million dest-
royed by arson last summer.
The afforestation activities
will also expand established
forest reserves, according to
JNF World Chairman Moshe
Rivlin, who has announced
that a total of 6,250 acres will
be planted at 119 forest sites
across Israel.
During summer 1988, JNF
emergency crews were called
upon to extinguish more than
1,200 fires, which consumed
over 40,000 acres, nearly four
times more than in 1987. Sixty
percent of the fires occurred
during May and June, after
which the number progres-
sively declined, due to im-
proved coordination between
the Israel Defense Forces, the
Fire Department, the Police
Department, the Society for
the Protection of Nature and
other agencies.
Financial damage for 1988
totaled more than $40 million.
To help restore the forests, a
worldwide "A Tree for a
Tree" campaign has been
organized. Some 500,000
Israelis have already partici-
pated in the planting activities.

BONN (JTA) West Ger-
many's Jewish community is
divided over the decision by
Defense Minister Rupert
Scholz to excuse young Ger-
man Jews whose grandparents
suffered under the Nazis from
compulsory military service.
It may also face legal tests in
The issue was raised by
Heinz Galinski, chairman of
the Central Council of Jewish
Communities in West Ger-
many, at a meeting with
He argued that many young
Jews refused to be drafted on
grounds that members of their
families were once persecuted
by Germans in uniform.
But the community is not of
one mind on the issue. Some
Jewish representatives say it
is perfectly justified to seek
exemptions as long as Nazi
victims are still alive.
But others maintain that
special treatment of Jews
gives Hitler a posthumous vic-
They recall that one of his
first edicts when the Nazi
came to power in 1933 was to
exclude Jews from the German
armed forces.
Until now, the West German
army has granted individual
requests for deferments by
Jews whose parents suffered
in concentration camps.
But lately, it has insisted on
drafting those whose grand-
parents were Nazi victims. By
now, more young Jews are
likely to have grandparents
rather than parents who suf-
fered under the Nazis.
The defense minister's deci-
sion has aroused resentment
among non-Jewish youths sub-
ject to the draft.
"If they choose to live here,
they should be ready to share
the burden of defending this
country," one young recruit
said on a television interview.
"The Jews got so much
money from Germany," said
another recruit. "Now that
they are being called to serve
the country, they quote the
Holocaust and the Nazi past.
That is absolutely wrong."
But a young Jew also inter-
viewed on television said he
could not imagine visiting his
grandmother in uniform.
"She suffered in Auschwitz
... I just can't do it," he said.
Last year, several young
Jews who were drafted sued
the ministry but lost. The
courts ruled they had no right
to refuse military service
because relatives had suffered
in the old Germany.
Martin A. Wenick, officer
with the U.S. career foreign
service and present deputy
assistant secretary of state for

served in Moscow for four
years, has been director of
both the department's Office
of Northern Europe and East-
