Israeli Installations Are
Put on Worldwide Alert

TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli Embassies and
diplomatic missions around the world have been
put on alert for possible terrorist retaliation as the
country's leaders continued to debate the wisdom
of forcing a private Libyan plane to land at an
Israel Air Force base because top Palestinian ter-
rorist leaders were believed to have been aboard.
The plane, a Gulfstream executive jet enroute
from Benghazi, Libya, to Damascus, was released
four and a half hours after it was intercepted
following an identity check which determined
there were no terrorists among its nine passengers
and three-man crew.
The incident, in addition to being an embarrass-
ment to Israel, raised strong possibilities that ter-
rorists would launch new strikes at Israeli targets.
Libyan leader Col. Muammar Qaddafi has vowed
reprisals. Ahmed Jibril, one of the terrorists
presumed to have been on the plane, warned
civilians to stay off Israeli and American airliners.
A spokesman for El Al, Israel's national airline,
said there were no grounds to fear a terrorist
response because El Al maintains the most str-
ingent security measures, and its flight paths take
it far from Libyan airspace.
Several Cabinet members stressed they were not
notified or consulted in advance on the decision to
intercept the Libyan plane. Premier Shimon Peres
told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee that the decision had to be made in a
matter of minutes, leaving no time for general
discussion. Only he, Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, and Chief of Staff Gen. Moshe Levy were
consulted and all approved the interception.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, the Likud
leader, said he had not been privy to the plan but
would have approved it had he been asked. He
said, in an Israel Radio interview, that Israel
would continue to act against terrorist leaders by
every possible means, and he was convinced they
would ultimately be captured and punished.
Rabin made a similar statement, saying Israel
would continue to combat terrorism by every
means, even if sometimes it makes mistakes, as it
did last week.
But Minister-Without-Portfolio Ezer Weizman
said in a television interview that had he been con-
sulted in advance, he would have opposed the in-
terception. He raised what he said was a major
problem: What would Israel have done with the
terrorists had any been captured?
Putting them on trial, like captured Nazi war
criminal Adolf Eichmann, who was tried in 1961
and subsequently executed would only invite
more terrorist attempts to seize Israelis as
hostages and hold them for the release of the cap-
tured terrorist leaders, Weizman said. Others
made the same point. Police Minister Haim Barlev
noted that the Cabinet has thoroughly debated
how to fight terrorism, but has not yet discussed

Imp res aria to Speak at B&P Affair March 6
Judy Drucker Doesn't Know 'Plain People'
By Andrew Polin
Editor of the Jewish Federation
of South Broward
"It just proves you have to
be nice to the girls in the
chorus because you never
know when they will hire
you," tenor Luciano
Pavarotti has been quoted
as saying.
The "girl" in the chorus
Pavarotti refers to is Miami's im-
presario Judy Drucker.
Pavarotti is just one of
Drucker's "pals."
Judy Drucker will be the guest
speaker at the Business and Pro-
fessional Women's Network's
ATSMA'UT (Independence) fun-
draising event on March 6 at the
Seafair Restaurant.
"When people ask, 'Who are
your closest friends?' I sometimes
keep quiet because they think I'm
boasting," Drucker told The
Jewish Floridian this week.
"Frankly, I don't know plain,
normal people. My 'pals" are
Pavarotti, Itzhak Perlman and
Beverly Sills," Drucker said in her
office at Temple Beth Sholom
which is filled with photographs of
these "pals" of hers. "I never
dreamed that they would become
friends of mine."
BUT THEY have become
friends of Miami's First Lady of
the Fine Arts, a fringe benefit of
successfully bringing the world's
greatest artists to Miami during
the last 20 years. Drucker built
the Great Artists Series out of a
combined lecture and concert pro-
gram at Temple Beth Sholom into
a powerhouse Miami institution.
As a result of her endeavors, the
Miami Beach Jaycees have named
Drucker the 1986 "Woman of the
Year," an honor she will receive
Saturday night at the awards
ceremony at the Fontainebleau-
Hilton Hotel.
"You think nobody notices what
you're doing, and all of a sudden
someone honors you. It makes it
all worthwhile," said Drucker,
whose official titles are Temple

president of the JND Concert
Foundation. With the ap-
proaching 1985-86 season her chai

looked back on her life and how
she became "pals" with the great
performers of the world.
DRUCKER'S life now is a long
way from her childhood in
Brooklyn where her family lived
until they moved to Miami in
1941. "Here during the war years,
I recall the soldiers marching
down the street in front of our
house," Drucker said, who has an

Anti-Semitism: The Pathology of Hate
By Arnold Ages
TORONTO (JTA) It's been
more than five months now since
a jury of his peers found Eckville
high school teacher James
Keegstra guilty of violating
Canada's anti-hate statute.
Despite the conviction and the
fine imposed upon Keegstra,
there is little evidence that he is in
any way contrite or repentant
According to two journalist-
researchers, David Bercuson and
Douglas Wertheimer, in their new
book, "A Trust Betrayed: The
Keegstra Affair," this is not an
unexpected development because
the pathology of hatred which ac-
tuates Keegstra is deep-rooted.
Background Report
In their account of the affair,
Bercuson, a professor at the
University of Calgary, and Wer-
theimer, editor of the Jewish Star
of the same city, display a dispas-
sionate and highly commendable
objective attitude. There is a
minimum of editorializing in their
treatment of what was un-
doubtedly one of the most squalid
interludes in recent Alberta
Although the authors were
unable to secure an interview with
Keegstra himself, they were able,
through an unremitting diligence,
to track down and speak to almost
everyone else who was involved in
the incident.
Their treatise ecompasses far
more than the pedagogy 'of
Keegstra; it is an inquiry into the
nature of high school education in
Alberta, the canons of modern
journalism, the politics of the
Alberta Teachers Association
(ATA), the response of politial
personalities in the province, and
the reaction of Alberta's Jewish
communities to the threat of
The latter, of course, is the cen-
tral focus. Bercuson and Wer-
theimer display magisterial con-
trol of the literature of Judaism
and of its antagonist anti-
Semitism. They show in their book
that which newspapers were
unable to delve into the malig-
nant sources of so much of
Keegstra's virulent anti-Jewish
Tracing the history of anti-
Semitism to a radical fringe of
Christianity, they show how in the
medieval period a whole corpus of
literature developed depicting the

Evangelical Leaders Show Support for Israel

dreds of conservative evangelical
leaders gathered in a show of sup-
port for Israel at the recent fifth
annual National Prayer Breakfast
honoring the Jewish State.
In fire and-brimstone style,
some of the nation's most promi-
nent evangelist orators told of
G-d's special relationship with the
Jewish people and of the terrible
destiny that awaits those who
seek to crush the nation He has

Coinciding with the strong
Christian fervor was the ex-
pectedly unmistakable political air
in the overpacked ballroom.
Among the preachers at the dais
were the Rev. Jerry Fahvell,
founder of the Moral Majority and
of the recently created Liberty
Federation a political organiza-
tion devoted specifically to pro-
moting the views of the Christian
right and the Rev. Pat Robert-
son, who has long been considered
a likely contender for the
Republican nomination for
Interspersed among the
ministers and lay leaders who ad-
dressed the early morning diners
were conservative members of
Congress and some of Israel's
most vocal supporters. .
They included Rep. Mark Sil-
jander (R., Mich.); Sen. Albert
Gore (D., Tenn.), who recently
returned from his first trip to
Israel; Sen. Arlen Specter (R.,
Pa), and Sen. Chic Hecht (R.,
Nev.,) a staunchly conservative
Jewish senator who escorted Sen.

ter's first trip to Israel last
Hecht and Specter were among
a handful of Jewish participants
who were also either honored at
the dais or were there to receive
the fiery praise of the orators for
the Jewish people and their State.
They included the usual represen-
tation from the Israel Embassy
and some of the major American
Jewish organizations.
But the uneasy alliance that has
been forged between the
evangelicals and the Jewish com-
munity by a common declared
commitment to Israel also reveal-
ed the pressure that seem to work
at unhinging that bond. At the
heart of those pressures has been
the whole question of church-state
relations in this country.
On that issue, Robertson ad-
dressed himself to the American
Jewish Community, saying that
"it does not serve your ends to
strip the religious symbols" from
the "public squares of America,"
and that "it does not advance the
cause of Judaism to diminish the
faith of evangelical Christians"
who value those symbols.
He referred specifically to the
issue of school prayer, which has
been vigorously opposed by many
of the major American Jewish
Another speaker, evangelist
Moody Adams explained Arab
hostility to Israel by the fact that
there are "800 million people who
believe that G-d wrote a book call-
ed the Koran," which he said pro-
mises heavenly rewards to those
who kill Jews.
But the keynote speaker,
former Ambassador to the United
Nations Jeanne Kirkpatrick,
avoided reference to the Bible or
other Scripture, citing instead the
words of Libyan leader Muammar
Qaddafi and her memories at the
UN as reference points for her ex-
pressions of support for Israel.
If Qaddafi "were the only leader
and Libya the only nation
dedicated to the destruction of
Israel," Kirkpatrick said, "Israel
problems would be much simpler
than they really are." But other
states, she stressed, "are just as
dedicated as Colonel Qaddafi" to
the goal of liquidating the Jewish

Recalling what she said was the
flagrant imbalance in the UN's
treatment of Israel, Kirkpatrick
urged that the U.S. refuse to
cooperate on any UN resolutions

delegations which refuse Israel

Responding to thunderous ap-
plause, she observed that perhaps

Errors and NoFacts
By Morris J. Asutay
For twenty-three years, syndicated columists Rowland Evans and
Robert Novak have rarely missed an opportunity to criticize Israel and
its American supporters in Congress and the Administration.
Nowadays at the prospect of reading their column, pro-Israel readers of
the Post are less likely to cringe and more apt to chuckle in anticipation
of the column's convoluted logic. Evans and Novak, so consistently bias-
ed and critical, simply cannot be taken seriously when commenting on
the Middle East. Evans, who is regarded as the foreign policy "expert"
of this dynamic journalistic duo, conjurs up the bleak Middle East
scenarios caused by Israel's "intransigence". Novak, who is apparently
Jewish but has been known to deny it, is affectionately known in
Washington circles as the "Prince of Darkness" and concentrates on
domestic issues. But both are widely, and arguably accurately, referred
to here in Washington as "Errors and NoFacts".
A recent column which reinforces this appellation entitled "A Mideast
Opening for Moscow" was a case in point. Its thesis was that Jordan's
King Hussein, having been denied the sophisticated U.S. arms he re-
quested, would now align himself with Moscow, and that Jordan would
soon be swarming with Soviet agents and military advisers. Any serious
student of the Middle East knows that this is the last thing either Hus-
sein or Jordan's military want. But Evans and Novak having invented
their own facts can invent their own conclusions as well "the denial of
arms also deepens the death throes for the U.S. 'peace plan' for Israel
and Jordan". It should be obvious that it was lack of any progress in
getting peace negogiations started which led to the denial of arms not
vice vena. In fact, the pre-condition of negotiations prior to approval of
a sale was made clear by both the Congress and the Administration on
numerous occasions.
But "Errors and NoFacts" will undoubtedly continue to go on their
merry way distorting the truth and displaying the consistent anti-
Israel bias which has become a hallmark of their columns. While Evans
and Novak may continue to gladden the hearts of Israel's foes, they will
also continue to destroy their credibility as journalists.
Despite the ups and downs in U.S.-Israel relations during the Reagan
Administration, one consistent bright spot has been the development
relationship between the U.S. Navy and Isarel's armed forces. As with
most of die U.S Navy's seccessful modernization programs, the
cooperation is the work of Secretary of the Navy John Lehman. The
48-year old Lehman, widely regarded in Washington as the most effec-
tive Navy Secretary ever, came to his post with impressive academic
and government service credentials. Lehman, a PhD in international
relations, served previously in a senior position on the National Security
Council and as Deputy Director of the Arms Control and Disarmament
Perhaps his most visible accomplishment involved the leasing of
Israeli-made Kfir fighter bombers for use as an aggressor squadron in
the training of U.S, pilots. The Navy's experience with these Virginia-
based aircrafts has been so positive, another squadron of Kfirs (called
F-21s by the Navy) will soon be used to hone the dog-fighting skills of
Marine Corps pilots.
In Israel, U.S. Naval vessels make frequent visits to Haifa which fur-
ther symbolizes the growing military cooperation between the United
States and Israel. Despite occasional hostility from the Pentagon to
the deepening of U.S. strategic ties with Israel, in Lehman's case one
man has made the difference, and friends of Israel are deeply grateful.

Near East Report
Tom Friedman, the New York
Times Jerusalem correspondent
and probably the best foreign
correspondent in Israel has
written a landmark piece about
the Middle East peace process.
"No Illusions: Israel Reassesses
Its Chances for Peace" (New York
Times Magazine, Jan. 26) pro-
vides a crash course in the new
realism of the Middle East
Prior to being posted in Israel,
Friedman, like most distant
observers of the Israeli scene,
believed that any solution to the
Arab-Israeli conflit would be ter-
ritorial. Israel would exchange
land the West Bank and Gaza
for peace.
Now, however, after a few
years in Israel, Friedman sees
that the territorial option is dying
if not dead. In June, Israel will
have been in control of the West
Bank for 19 years, half the life of
the state and exactly as long as
Jordan possessed the territory.
No fence separates pre- and
post-1967 Israel. In fact, many
Israelis have little sense of where
pre-'67 Israel ends and the West
Bank begins. Dotted lines exist
only on maps.
Friedman believes that it is the
experience with Egypt after
Camp David that seriously
dampened Israeli enthusiasm for
Book Review
dividing the West Bank with Jor-
dan and the Palestinians. Fried-
man quotes one Israeli as saying
that Jerusalem expected peace
with Egypt to be something akin
to the U.S. relationship with its
neighbors. "But with Egypt. .
Israelis discovered that the op-
posite of making war was not
making war. And that 'peace' was
the relationship the United States
has with the Soviet Union, not
with Canada."
That has been a rude awakening
for Israelis. Few would trade the
state of "not making war" with
Egypt for its alternative.
Nevertheless, it is not surpris-
ing that in light of that example
Israelis are very skeptical about
what "peace" with Jordan would
And there is an important dif-
ference between Jordan and
Egypt, one that makes an
Egyptian-style settlement with
Jordan even less appealing.
Writes Friedman: "With Egypt,
Israel can afford to have a cold
peace. There is the vast Sinai
Desert separating the two coun-
tries and serving as a buffer bet-
ween armies and peoples. But on
the West Bank there can be no
cold peace; it has to be a peace
based on some kind of real rela-
tions, or nothing at all. The
distances are too small; there will
be no Sinai for both sides to sulk
He adds that few Israelis will
agree to a withdrawal from the
West Bank that does not allow for
continued access to the area. "It is
precisely for this reason that the
negative precedent being set bet-
ween Israel and Egypt is so
dangerous, and why the word
'peace' for most Israelis has to be
re-endowed with some content
and sense of joy before people can
even begin to consider a new in-
itiatve that deals with Jordan and
the West Bank."
But what sorf of "new in-
itiative" if territorial compromise
is ruled out? Friedman's answer is
similar to one that Shimon Peres
has been hinting at. In a speech in
London on Jan. 23, Peres said
that if King Hussein does not take
advantage of the chance for peace
"he might awaken one day to the
fact that the territories have been
given self-administration"
without him.
Peres was referring to the con-
cept of "functional autonomy"
an arrangement under which
Israel holds on to the territories
for the forseeable future but per-
mits the Palestinians to assume all
the aspects of self-rule except the
military. Functional autonomy
was first proposed under Camp
David, but according to Friedman,
it had one major flaw. Under
Camp David, West Bank
autonomy would only have been a
five year transitional phase after
which the territories' final disposi-

The Evolution of Synagogues
Synagogues of Europe: Ar-

More than 20 years have passed
since the publication of the last
serious survey of European
synagogue architecture (The Ar-
chitecture of the European
Synagogue by Rachel
Wischnitzer). New archaeological
discoveries, restorations, and
research in the intervening years
demanded a book like Carol
Herselle Krinsky's Synagogues of
The scope of the topic obviously
presented problems of presenta-
tion, even within the confines of a
457-page book. The diverse poten-
tial audiences, scholarly or public,
Jewish or Gentile, must have also
been a factor in determining the
organization of the material and
the contents. Professor Krinsky
has chosen an unusual format as
an answer to these questions. The
first 138 pages are devoted to
three essays: an introduction on
the origin and definition of the
synagogue which also includes a
comparison to other religious
buildings and to secular ones;
"Ritual Arrangements" which
discusses the perennial problem of
synagogue architecture the
relative arrangement of the Torah
ark and the reader's desk, as well
as lighting, spaces for women,
auxiliary spaces, and the place-
ment of pulpit, choir and organ;
and thirdly, an essay on the
history of the synagogue from an-
tiquity to modern tunes. These
essays are annotated, but accom-
panied by very few illustrations,
so that readers who are unfamiliar
with the monuments mentioned in
the text must turn to the second
half of the book, "Selected Ex-
amples," both for illustrations and
for examples which deepen their
knowledge of the general points
being made.
The organization of the second
half is entirely different. The
selected synagogues discussed are
arranged geographically under
nine headings: Austria-Hungary
and the Balkans (there are no
Greek synagogues in this section
or elsewhere), Eastern Europe
and the USSR, France and
Belgium, Germany and
Switzerland, Iberian Peninsula,
Italy, The Netherlands, Scan-
dinavia, and the United Kingdom.
Within areas, the synagogues are
listed by city, from the oldest to
the most recent. Each monument
is treated in a concise essay ac-
companied by a helpful
bibliography and illustrations.
One has the impression that this
part of the book is intended as a
ready reference for those plann-
ing a trip to a particular area of
Europe, an impression which is
reinforced by the "Notes for the
Visitor" at the back of the book, a
peculiar inclusion if the book were
intended only for a scholarly au-
dience. Yet, if the book is also aim-
ed for the lay public as it clearly is,
then it is unfortunate that there is
no glossary of architectural terms
to explain artesonado, penden-
tivea, Tuscan columns, and the
like. There is a glossary of
Hebrew terms, an extensive
bibliography, and two appendices,
a list of selected architects sub-
divided into Christian and Jewish,
and a list of extant Polish
synagogues and their present uses
(but no listing of extant Greek or
Italian synagogues or of any other
country whose Jewish population
was decimated by the war).
Synagogues of Europe is a very
well-written book. Carol Krin-
sky's sprightly prose carries the
reader along and, her text in-
cludes lively comments not usually
found in works by acad- Trie

fortunate to have had as
publishers the Architectural

Still, this is in some ways, an an-
noying book, particularly the in-
troductory essays of the first sec-
tion. The author often presents
sweeping generalizations based
on incomplete evidence. In ex-
plaining why her book focuses on
Central and Western Europe
synagogues instead of including
more material on Eastern Europe
Ms. Krinsky writes: "Adherents
of the ultraorthadox, mystically-
oriented Hasidic sect, which was
prominent especially in Eastern
Europe from the late 18th century
onward, profess indifference to
their surroundings during prayer
and devoted more attention to
rooms where they study" as if all
Hasidim were indifferent to ar-
chitecture, a fact disproved
elsewhere in the book or that all
East European Jews were
Hasidim. (For some inexplicable
reason, Ms. Krinsky keeps referr-
ing to the plural as Hasids.) Equal-
ly disconcerting in a book on
synagogues are the constant use
of terms "Holy Land," a name
with distinct Christological
references, and "ultra-orthodox,''
and adjective which is in-
discriminately used, even for the
Judaism of Rabbi Samson Raphael
Hirech (1808-1888) who advocated
a union of traditional Jewish life
with modernism. Despite short -
comings such as these,
Synagogues of Europe is a signifi-
cant work which will remain an
important reference.

Anti-Semitism The Pathology of Hatred
Continued from Page 1
Jew in demonic terms. By the
eighteenth century, there was a
full-blown library of books
denigrating not only Judaism and
the Talmud, but depicting Jews
(along with Masons and the II-
luminati) as conspiratorial agents
out to undermine Christendom
and supplant it with a Judaeo-
Masonic confederation.
The Bercuson-Wertheimer
volume is the first serious attempt
to explore the lunatic fantasies
which flowed from these theories
and which were adopted un-
visors, the media and the court
show quite clearly the way in
which the classical anti-Semitic
mind works and it does, with a
peculiar circular logic of its own.
Starting from the "revealed
truth" that Jews are part of a
demonic conspiracy to rule the
world, Keegstra reasoned that the
absence of this truth in conven-
tional history books was ipso facto
proof that the conspiracy has suc-
ceeded in capturing the book
publishing industry. Any pressure
brought to bear against him by the
school board, by the province or
critically and malevolently by an by the courts was interpreted bv
Eckville high scholl teacher who,
for more than a decade, taught as
unimpeachable fact what was
hysterical rubbish.
Despite assertions to the con-
trary, Keegstra used the trust
emplaced in him by an Alberta
school board to transform a social
studies classroom into a
laboratory with some very com-
bustible experiments in the in-
culcation of hate. The documenta-
tion which surfaced during the
hearings on Keegstra's dismissal
and during the subsequent trial
showed that any student who fail-
ed to regurgitate Keegstra's par-
ty line on Jewish iniquity was
penalized with low marks.
Failure to reproduce Keegstra's
delusional theories meant that
students had used materials found
in libraries rather than the anti-
Semitic pap which he made
available to his charges from the
library of anti-Semitica which he

Keegstra as additional evidence of
the diabolism of the agents of
One of the merits of the
Bercuson-Wertheimer volume is
the patient reconstruction which
they effect of the complaints
which were first lodged against
Keegstra, the warnings which
were issued to him and the hear-
ings which finally revoked his per-
mission to teach.
It seems astonishing that
Keegstra was able to use his
classroom for the inculcation of
hatred for Jews for more than a
decade before his performance
came under critical scrutiny. This
occurred because of a number of
contributory factors: the inertia of
the educational establishment, the
real affection which many
Eckville residents had for the
teacher (he was a sincere, honest
Christian, the refrain went) and
the reluctance of the ATA to sanc-
tion a dismissal of any teacher,
under any circumstances.
This latter somewhat delicate
issue is brought to the surface in
the Bercuson-Wertheimer
volume. The authors do not find
much integrity or moral stamina
in the ATA. They flatly reject the
organization's defense that it was
interested only in the question of
peremptory dismissal and that it
represented Keegstra as it would
any teacher in such
The authors cite chapter and
verse to show that the ATA has
more discretionary power than it
let on and that intervention is not
automatic on behalf of a teacher.
They conclude that the ATA is
more akin to an industrial union
out to protect job security than a
professional organization.
With regard to media profes-
sionalism, the Edmonton Journal
scores high in the inventory by the
two authors of the Alberta press
during the incubation, develop-
ment and bursting forth of the
Keegstra affair. While the authors
have some critical comments to
make about the reluctance of the
press in the province to play up
the affair as nothing more than a
local happening, they are com-
plimentary towards Steve Hume,
editor of the Edmonton Journal.
Hume's background in British
Columbia and his humanist con-
cern for the native peoples in that
province prompted him to see the
Keegstra affair in its true light as
an incitement of bigotry and hate.
He was led to this realization in
part by some of the phone calls he
received implying not so subtly
that Keegstra was correct.
Thanks to Hume's sense of in-
tegrity, the Edmonton Journal
more than any other Alberta
newspaper, began to utilize its
editorial page and op-ed sections
in order to sensitize readers to the
horrors of the Holocaust and its
breeding ground, anti-Semitism.
For this mature coverage, the
Journal won a prestigious jour-
nalism award.
One of the great quandaries ex-
plored in the Bercuson-
Wertheimer chronicle was the dif-
ficulty faced by Alberta's Jewish
community. When rumors of the
Keegstra affair began to drift into
the Calgary and Edmonton com-
munities, there was a tendency on
the part of the communal leaders
to ignore the whole thing for fear
of aggravating a potentially harm-
ful public ventilating of the con-
troversy. In the final analysis
those anxieties proved to be
predictive of what actually
The Jewish communities in
Alberta were slowly but ineluc-
tably drawn into the conflict by
the rush of events and by the
leadership of two main individuals
in Calgary and Edmonton who
resolved to fight Keegstra out of a
sense of injury and the belief that
resistance to outrage was better
than silent acquiescence.
One of the things which
emerges from the book, however,
is that the Jewish communities in
Calgary and Edmonton were very
poorly organized to deal with an
event of the Keegstra magnitude
and had, moreover very little
liaison between them. It took the
pressure of Keegstra to develop
an intercommunity sense of
camaraderie and a healthy rela-
tionship at the same time with the
Canadian Jewish Congress of
Toronto which helped the
Alberta communities with legal
opinions and other
The book which Bercuson and
Wertheimer have written is a fine
study of the sociology of hatred.
Their deliberate effort to avoid
hysterics and editorializing in the
recounting of the Keegstra affair
is both a merit and a failure. A
merit because it permits the
reader access to facts from which
he can draw his own conclusions.
It fails in one way, however,
because it does not confront the
central issue, namely, how is it
possible for a sincere practicing
Christian to entertain such
perverted ideas about Jews and
Judaism, and what is more alarm-
ing, to make that perverse preoc-
cupation the central preoccupa-
tion of his life? The answer to this
question may be impossible to pro-
vide, but in raising it the authors
would have added an additional
dimension to their discourse.
What did the Keegstra affair
teach? According to this book,
"bigotry will not be eliminated by
the Criminal Code of Canada."
The importance lies not in
Keegstra's conviction but in the
fact "that a handful of school of-
ficials, outraged parents, the
Jewish community and a sensitive
media were willing to wage a
public battle against the danger."
'Who is a Jew' Amendment is Defeated
sounding defeat sustained by the
"Who Is A Jew" amendment to
the Law of Return in the Knesset
its third defeat in recent years
was a major disappointment to
the religious parties which had
forced the issue once again to the
Knesset floor.
The fiercely controversial
measure was overwhelmed by a
61-47 vote, with two abstentions,
a far larger margin of defeat than
its sponsors had expected. The Or-
thodox Morasha party was embit-
tered by the failure of many Likud
MKs to support the amendment.
The disappointment of Shas, a
member of the unity coalition
government, was muted. The four
MKs of that ultra-Orthodox fac-
tion apparently do not consider
the defeat a reason to create a
crisis with Likud or within the
The Orthodox parties have been
pressing the "Who Is A Jew"
amendment for years. It would
define a Jew as anyone born of a
Jewish mother or converted to
Judaism "according to halacha."
The addition of the last three
words is the source of the conflict,
for it would in effect invalidate
conversions performed outside
Israel by other than Orthodox rab-
bis. The amendment has been
forcefully opposed in Israel and by
the Reform and Conservative
branches of Judaism in the U.S.
Premier Shimon Peres, who
spoke for the government in the
debate preceding the vote, warn-
ed that passage of the amendment
would have a divisive effect on
Jewish life in Israel and abroad.
"Is it in our interest to weaken the
bonds which grow steadily
stronger between the Conser-
vative and Reform movements
and Israel?" Peres asked, address-
ing himself to "my friends, the Or-
thodox members of the Knesset."
The Premier also spoke out
against a counter-amendment in-
troduced by the Civil Rights
Movement (CRM) which would
define a Jew as anyone declaring
themselves to be a Jew. That
amendment was also defeated.
Yosef Burg, veteran leader of
the National Religious Party who
is Minister of Religious Affairs,
was to have spoken for the amend-
ment. But Burg, who was visiting
the U.S., flatly refused pleas from
Orthodox colleagues as saying
that he had strongly advised
against introducing the amemd-
ment at this time, since there was
no assured majority for its
passage. Under the law, the
amendment cannot be reintroduc-
ed for at least six months.
The Orthodox parties were
rankled by the absence of two
Likud ministers, Ariel Sharon and
Moshe Arens, from the chamber
and abstentions by Rafael Eitan
of the rightwing Tehiya Party and
Ehud Olmert (Likud-Herut) -
especially Olmert, who in the past
had supported the amendment.
Olmert told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that he has
proposed a formula to resolve the
conflict to the satisfaction of all
three branches of Judaism. He
said he would create a Bet Din
(religious court) that would con-
sist of three Orthodox rabbis and
one each from the Reform and
Conservative movements. He
noted that the latter would have
to be personally observant in their
lifestyles and that the Orthodox
rabbis would constitute a quorum.
"It is not an ideal solution but
there are no ideal solutions,"
Olmert said. He claimed he
already has support for his pro-
posal among non-Orthodox
religious Jews in Israel and the
U.S. He named Rabbi Richard
Hirsch, president of the World
Union for Progressive Judaism, as
the Reform movement is known in
Israel, and mentioned leading
Conservative rabbis from the U.S.
whom he did not name.

NEW YORK (JTA) A 75-year-old
Westchester County man accused of war crimes
and collaborating with the Nazis during World
War II was provided entry into the United States
nearly 30 years ago by the Central Intelligence
Agency, despite agency knowledge of his past ac-
tivities, it was disclosed here recently.
According to the Village Voice, which made the
disclosure, Mykola Lebed of Yonkers, New York,
was brought into the country in 1948 under an
assumed name and was subsequently given perma-
nent residence under Section 8 of the CIA Act of
1949 which allows the CIA to bring 100 individuals
a year to the U.S. for national security reasons
regardless of their past The Justice Department's
Office of Special Investigations is reportedly look-
ing into the allegations. The CIA, maintaining
agency policy, declined to comment on the reports.
Several calls by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency to
Lebed's listed telphone number went unanswered.
He declined to discuss his past activities with the
Village Voice staff writers, the weekly newspaper
The Voice disclosed that Lebed is the same in-
dividual identified only as "Subject D" in a
40-page report issued last June by the United
States General accounting Office. The report
focused on the government's use of Nszi and Axis
collaborators for post-war anti-Communist In-
telligence work.
The GAO report on former Nazis and col-
laborators "with undesirable or questionable
backgrounds" whom the office found had been
assisted into the country by intelligence agencies
for anti-Communist operations, were not iden-
tified by name, but only as "Subjects A-E."
The GAO report, which devoted nearly two full
pages to "Subject D," and The Village Voice arti-
cle, written by Joe Conason, said Lebed was con-
victed in Poland in 1934 for plotting to assassinate
an East European official. This official was iden-
tified as Polish Interior Minister Bronislaw
Pieracki. His sentence was later commuted to life
According to documentation obtained by the
Village Voice, including heavily censored in-
telligence reports, Lebed was a leader in the
Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN),
described as a rightwing nationalist group. Lebed
reportedly ran the Sluzhba Bezpeky, "its reputed-
ly murderous security force," the Voice said.
Lebed also attended for a brief time the Gestapo
school in Zakopane, a district of Cracow, Poland,
according to.Counter Intelligence Corps files ob-
tained by the Voice. Complicity between the Nazis
and the OUN is confirmed by documentation pro-
vided by Yad Vashem in Israel.
Rabin, Arens Disagree on Peace Talks
By David Friedman
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
and his predecessor in that office,
Minister-Without-Portfolio Moshe
Arens, disagree on how Israel
should proceed in the peace pro-
cess and about its negotiating
position. The two Ministers, both
former Ambassadors to the
United States, expressed their
views, demonstrating the dif-
ferences between Labor and
Likud in the coalition govern-
ment, before the recent 50th
plenary assembly of the World
Jewish Congress at the Jerusalem
Hilton Hotel.
Rabin said that Israel should no
longer "wait for the telephone call
from the other side" but do what
it can to "facilitate" bringing
King Hussein of Jordan to the
negotiating table. But Arens said
Hussein had had an invitation
since 1967 and even before. He is
the "one man" who can decide
whether there are to be direct
negotiations between Jordan and
Arens suggested that Hussein is
more concerned sbout losing his
throne than any benefits he can
receive from negotiations with
Israel. Rabin stressed that if Jor-
dan allows either Syria or the
Palestine Liberation Organization
to have a "veto" on negotiations
with Israel, "there will be no
beginning of negotiations."
Rabin said the Jordanian
German Official
Expresses Concern
delegation should include Palesti-
nians from the West Bank and
Gaza, but no declared PLO
members. He said without Palesti-
nians participating, any agree-
ment will be somewhat "invalid."
Both officials agreed that there
must be direct bilateral negotia-
tions, although Rabin said he
would accept the "umbrella" of an
international forum if this was not
used for negotiations.
Rabin also rejected the call by
WJC president Edgar Bronfman
that the Soviet Union be included
in the peace process. He said if the
USSR had been involved during
the last 12 years there would have
been no Israeli-Egyptian peace
treaty. He said Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat went to
Jerusalem because President
Carter wanted to bring the
Soviets into Mideast talks.
Arens and Rabin disagreed
most on Israel's negotiating posi-
tion. Rabin said it was much more
important to have a Jewish State
than to "have the borders we are
justified in demanding." He
declared that "I prefer the
Jewishness of the State rather
than the Jewishness of the
But Arens said Israel must
maintain Judaea, Samaria and
Gaza for security reasons. He
noted that during the Yom Kippur
war these territories gave Israel
the depth it needed for protection
while the reserves were being
mobilized. He said the
demographic problems could be
solved by increased aliya.

American Jewish leaders.
Rau, who recently ended a
three-day visit to the U.S. replied

Semitic remarks recently made by
Hermann Felner, a leading
Bundestag member of the
Bavarian Christian Social Union
(CSU), and Mayor Wilderich Von

laborers of the Nazi regime who
seek reparations create the im-
pression that "Jews always show
up when money jingles in German
cashboxes." Von Mierbach, a
member of the CDU, told his town
council's budget committee that
the best way to balance the budget
was to "kill a few rich Jews."
Rau maintained there are "no
significant rightwing radical
groups" in West Germany today.
He added, nevertheless, such
groups as there are have to be
watched "very carefully." He said
he did not know why these expres-
sions of anti-Semitism were voic-
ed or if they signify a trend in Ger-
man society. "Personally, I felt
very sorry for them (the remarks)
and deeply regret them," he said.
Henry Siegman, executive
director of the American Jewish
Congress, who opened the press
conference, said Rau was invited
in the aftermath of the Bitburg
controversy because the Jewish
position on President Reagan's
visit to the German war cemetery
last May was misunderstood in
Jews and many others objected
to Reagan placing a wreath at a
cemetery where -nbers of the

Despite Silence This Troupe Dances to the Music
Special to the Federation
The clanking and drilling from a
car repair shop finds its way into
the Tel Aviv studio of the Kol
U'Demama dance company,
located above the garage. The
clamor annoys director Moshe
Efrati as well as many of the per-
formers who are trying to concen-
trate on the tempo of the classical
music. But half of the dancers are
undistracted by the commotion
and continue dancing in perfect
rhythm. They are deaf.
Efrati's company Kol
U'Demama (Sound and Silence) is
the only professional dance com-
pany in the world that combines
both hearing and deaf performers.
The deaf dancers know when to
move by body signals, such as a
tap on the back or a nod, or by
cues transmitted to their knees
through knocks on the wooden
The system was developed by
Efrati. He shrugs off any sugges-
tion that professional training
with the deaf is necessary to bring
them into the world of hearing
dancers. His formula for teaching
them is simple. He talks normally
to the deaf dancers while il-
lustrating the steps. Sometimes,
he lifts his fingers to indicate
numbers. They, in turn, watch his
lips intently and imitate his
"All you need is a special spirit.
The banging on the floor is simply
a meeting point between the deaf
and hearing. Two worlds meet
and communicate with each
other," said the curly-haired
Efrati after a long day of
The 15-member company was
founded five years ago when
Efrati merged his company of
deaf dancers "Demama." with his
hearing troupe "Efrati." The
company is jointly funded by the
Israel Deaf Assocition. the Kin-
neret Foundation and the Doron
To an observer, it is impossible
to discern which dancers are deaf
as the company performs modern
ballet pieces. The distinction can
only be made when the deaf
dancers perform alone on stage
without music.
Choreographed by Efrati, the
dances are based on Biblical
themes, philosophical dilemmas,
and the struggle between the deaf
and hearing communities to
understand each other.

Jewish Braille
Institute Makes
Special Haggadahs
Jewish Braille Institute will send a
free haggadah in either large
print or braille or on
audiocassette, to any blind or
visually-impaired adult or child
who requrests one, according to
an announcement from the
Two editions of the haggadah
are available from the Institute in
large print: the traditional seder,
edited by Dr. Philip Birnbaum,
and the Reform New Union Hag-
gadah. Four seders are available
in braille one edited by the late
Dr. Cecil Roth; a Conservative
and a Reform edition; and a one-
volume edition for children.
There is also a haggadah on
three audiocassettes, the Koren
Haggadah, recorded by the late
Cantor Paul Kwartin and the
choir of the Union Temple in
dancers, recalled how inhibited he
was growing up in a soundless
world. As a child, he saw Efrati
perform with the Bat-Sheva dance
company, in which he was then
the principal performer.
"I got very excited. But I never
thought I could express myself
like that. Years later, I met Moshe
and he encouraged me," said the
29-year-old Bouzaglo.
Bouzaglo, who is also a sculptor,
recalled that before joining the
company he had found it difficult
to meet hearing people. Now he
has not only developed personal
relationships with the hearing, but
has had opportunities to meet and
exchange views with celebrities in
the art world while traveling
abroad with the company.
"This has opened up so much for
me," he said. Many of the deaf
performers, like Bouzaglo, work
in other professions such as
diamonds and mechanical drawing
to supplement their incomes.
For Gabi Barr, one of the hear-
ing dancers working with Efrati
for the past 11 years, performing
with the deaf has made her more
aware of her onstage work. "You
can't be out of count or out of
rhythm. Concentration is ex-
tremely important," she said.
Michal Gross, a novice with Kol
U'Demama who is one of the hear-
ing dancers, finds the responsibili-
ty of signalling the deaf a bit of a
strain. Nevertheless, she feels the
experience is gratifying.
"We're closer, since we must
depend on helping one another.
I've learned to see not only myself
on stage, but to share what I'm
doing with others. This isn't
typical of most companies," she
Efrati's patience during rehear-
sals is undoubtedly a major reason
why his troupe has become such a
success and an inspiration to the
deaf, who often have coordination
problems. He estimates that it
takes from five to seven years of
training with him until the deaf
master the precision in balance
needed for professional dance.
Amnon Damti, the company's
principal deaf peformer, finds that
dance has given him new direction
in his thinking and new outlets to
Efrati, center, directing members of Kol U'Demama-the deaf
and hearing dance troupe. (Fern Allen)
express his feelings. Damti was a
metal worker on a moshav before
studying dance with Efrati 12
years ago. "Now I talk with my
body," said the muscular dancer
whose speech is slurred.
Damti "talks with his body" not
only on the dance floor, but off-
stage as well. He enjoyed im-
itating Efrati on a particularly
tense day. The dance master grin-
ned broadly as Damti mimicked
him shuffling papers and throw-
ing his arms into the air.
"Dance has given all of the deaf
much more confidence," mused
Efrati as he watched his star per-
former with a sense of pride.
"Now they look at life with their
heads up, not down."

for the Translation of Jewish
Literature, established here
recently to make the greatest
written works of the Jewish peo-
ple available to readers in the
English language, will sponsor
"The Library of Yiddish Classics"
as its first project.
At the same time, the National
Yiddish Book Center in Amherst,
Mass., is launching a Yiddish
translation project which will in-
itially focus mainly on works of
"ethnographic interest," primari-
ly memoirs.
At the YTVO Institute for
Jewish Research in New York, the
first fruits of its translator-in-
residence program, a collection of
Yiddish folktales from its vast ar-
chives, will be co-published with
Pantheon Books this year. The
folktales, culled from its library of
over 320,000 books, were
translated by Leonard Wolf, its
translator-in-residence, and
edited by Bina Weinreich.
The Fund for the Translation of
Jewish Literature was launched
by author Lucy Dawidowicz, who
serves as its president, with Dr.
Ruth Wisse, professor of Yiddish
literature at McGill University in
Montreal, as editor-in-chief. The
Fund will raise money to enable it
to commission translations of Yid-
dish works, and edit and prepare
them for publication by Schocken
Books here.
Dawidowicz told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the Fund
envisages a series of 20 to 25
volumes which will "represent the
best and the finest works of
modern Yiddish literature." Each
work, which will have a "standard
format" as part of the Library,
will include an introduction on the
author and his or her times.
The first volumes in the series
will be "representative and
significant" selections from the
works of Sholem Aleichem, Itzhak
Leib Peretz. Mendele Mocher
Sforim, and Sh. Ansky. Additional
works by these authors, and
others, and books from earlier
periods as well reprints of

round," Dawidowicz said.
The Fund, at POB 46,
Planetarium Station, New York,
N.Y. 10024, also envisages laun-
ching a series of cassette tapes of
"the spoken Yiddish word" drawn
from works it will translate and
publish, she said.
The National Yiddish Book
Center will draw on the 350,000
Yiddish volumes it has collected
from all sections of the world over
the past four years for its transla-
tion project. The Center, founding
director Aaron Lansky told JTA,
has "thousands of volumes of
memoir literature," out of which
it plans to choose 20 for
"Jews were great at writing
memoirs," Lansky said. Pointing
to the fact that the memoir
writers "some completely
unknown, many of them women"
- of the late 19th and 20th cen-
turies understood the importance
of the "historic moment" they
were living through, Lansky add-
ed that he envisioned these
translated works being used as
original source material in
modern Jewish history courses.
Describing the efforts as a
"grass roots translation" project,
Lansky said the Center has
already been in touch with many
talented translators all over the
country who are eager to work
with the Center, which will assist
them in getting funding. The
Center is located at Old East
Street School, POB 969, Amherst,
Mass. 01004.
YIVO, the central repository
and archive of materials on the
history, language and

Jews and their descendants in

New Flight Paths Used For Aircrafts
By Hugh Orjjel
Transport Ministry's Civil Avia-
tion Authority recently announc-
ed it has established new flight
paths for civilian aircraft arriving
at and departing from Israel. The
measure was taken in response to
threats by Libya, Syria and
various terrorist groups to
retaliate for the interception by
the Israel Air Force earlier this
month of a private Libyan plane
which Israel had reason to believe
was carrying top terrorist leaders.
Israel's intelligence proved false
in this case and the plane, a
Gulfstream Executive jet enroute
from Benghazi, Libya, to
Damascus, was released four-and-
a-half hours after it had been forc-
ed to land at an air base in nor-
thern Israel.
The reprisal threats were not
specific but they are taken
seriously here and in other coun-
tries. Terrorist leader Abu Nidal,
one of those presumed to have
been aboard the intercepted
plane, warned civilians to stay off
Israeli and American airliners. Li-
byan leader Muammar Khadafy
charged that the U.S. Sixth Fleet,
operating near Libyan waters,
had pinpointed the private plane
for the Israel Air Force.
Greek civil aviation authorities
who operate air traffic controls in
the eastern Mediterranean jointly
with Cyprus, have also assigned
new flight paths well away from
Libyan air space, Maariv
reported. A spokesman for El Al,
Israel's national airline, said the
Libyan threats have had no
adverse effects on bookings.
Israeli officials, meanwhile,
sought to justify the interception
as having been within Israel's
rights under international law.
Transport Minister Haim Corfu
issued a statement to that effect.
He cited the principles laid down
in a resolution of the International
Civil Aviation Organization
(ICAO), a United Nations agency,
in May, 1984.
He said the resolution recogniz-
ed the right of every country to
force the landing of a civilian air-
craft in its territory within the
framework of the right to defend
its sovereignty, if there is a
reasonable basis for believing that
the aircraft was being used for
purposes inconsistent with that
Israeli officials have pointed out
that the intercepted plane was not
a commercial airliner carrying
paying passengers on a regular
route but a private plane not sub-
ject to ICAO regulations
chartered to carry home par-
ticipants in a conference in
Tripoli, Libya where terrorist ac-
tivities were discussed and pro-
bably planned.
According to these officials,
there was sufficient intelligence
information to indicate that pro-
minent terrorist leaders were in
the plane and to justify the in-
tercept order.
Some sources said that Nidal
and George Habash, leader of the
Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine, may have actually
boarded the plane in Libya and
promptly left by another door to
mislead foreign agents who may
have been watching the aircraft.
Terrorist leaders have been
known in the past to switch planes
at the last minute.

The squad car would pick
Drucker up and take her to three
different shows where she would
perform. "I used to come home
with $30.1 hate to tell you how old
I was."
Drucker's first big job was sing-
ing at the Latin Quarter on Palm
Island three shows a night of
opera in the nightclubs. "I did my
homework between shows."
BY NOW a college student,
Drucker found herself studying
Russian with no time to do her

and sing Russian songs, she would
"After staying up till 3 a.m. I'd
come into class at 8 am. and sing
Russian songs. I got an 'A' in the
class," she added.
Back then, Drucker's main am-
bition was to be a singer, but she
gave up her professional career to
marry attorney David Drucker
and raise their three children.
David Drucker passed away
several years ago.
"Unless you approach it correct-
ly, it can be very damaging,"
Drucker explained, referring to
giving up her career. But she
stayed active as a singer in local
productions. When her children
were older. Drucker decided to
become more active outside the

coincided with Temple Beth

desire to establish a speaker's
series in which a heralded
theologian, political analyst and
author would be brought to the
"I said, 'How about one great
musician?' Drucker said.
That was the beginning.
As a novice impresaria,
Drucker brought in Martin Agron-
sky, David Halberstam and then,
an unknown, U.S. senator named
George McGovern. For the musi-
cian, Drucker found a young
violinist from Juilliard who she
had heard was very talented.
The violonist's name? Pinchas
"THE CONCERT gave me a
lot of self-satisfaction. It put me
back into the world of real music,"
Drucker said, adding that she saw
a great need for fine arts in Miami
at that time. The next year,
Drucker convinced Rabbi Kronish
to make the series a two-two split
two speakers and two
"It became so popular. It was so
great," Drucker recalled, adding
that she then asked Rabbi Kronish
to let her put on an entire concert
"Do you think we can do it?'
Rabbi Kronish asked. "I said,
'Sure.' The following year the con-
cert series' name became the
Great Artists Series of Temple
Beth Sholom.
"It caught hold," Drucker said,
adding that the series was held
nine years at the temple. The per-
formers had two shows each the
last year it was at the temple
because the concerts had grown
so popular.
IT WAS during this time that
the late tenor, Richard Tucker, at
the height of his fame as an opera
singer and cantor, approached
"Hey kid, I hear you run a con-
cert series. You ought to book
me," Tucker told Drucker.
"Mr. Tucker, I could't afford
you. Your fee is $5,000," Drucker
remembered saying."If you don't
make back double my fee, you
don't have to pay me," Tucker
replied and then handed Drucker
an IOU which she still keeps in her
"It was an offer you couldn't
refuse," Drucker added.
The concert was sold out in two
Tucker told Drucker to book him
into the 4,100-seat Miami Beach
Auditorium an endeavor that
made Drucker nervous.
"Don't worry. We'll do it
together," Tucker told her.
"We sold every ticket and could
have sold a thousand more," she

the logistics of booking a hall and
making a concert series suc-

developed, Drucker already had
experience. "I decided to move

AS A RESULT of this transi-
tion period, Drucker said the tem-
ple also is reestablishing an artists
series in its sanctuary, which will
focus on chamber music and
young talented performers.
Throughout the years, Drucker
has brought such artists as Isaac
Stern, Mstislav Rostropovich,
Joan Sutherland, Pavarotti,
Zukerman, Perlman, Leonard
Bernstein, Zubin Mehta and the
late Arthur Fiedler.
In 1980, Drucker brought about

with the performers on a more in-

Beverly Sills came down with a
cold, Drucker knew what to do to
make the concert a success. What
she did is a trade secret.
But it is this rapport with the
performers that marks her work.
She is close to them, and they are
close to her.

Drucker was going to leave Sills

Soviet Jewry Update
Friday, February 21, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 11
natoly Shcharansky: A Profile in Courage
By Kevin Freeman
eleaae last week of Soviet Jewish
isoner of Conscience Anatoloy
Ihcharansky as part of an East-
Vest exchange of prisoners br-
pgs to a close one of the most
elebrated human rights cases
Inch drew international atten-
lon and the concern of numerous
fovernment leaders and
Nearly nine years after he was
jndled into a car by Soviet secret
hce agents on Gorky Street in
loscow to later be tried on
of treason, in a move by
loviet authorities with few
dents since the days of
ftalin, Shcharansky's name
ne synonymous with Soviet
rights violations and the
realities of life for Jews in
he Soviet Union.
[Now, with his release, he has
en reunited with his wife A vital,
10 emigrated from the Soviet
fnion in July, 1974, just one day
they were married by a rabbi
Moscow, a marriage Soviet of-
cials later declared invalid.
Ithough she had not seen her
rid since that time, Avital's
ileas efforts on his behalf are
lited with keeping Shcharan-
's name in the forefront of ra-
tional public opinion.
orn in the Ukrainian city of
metsk on January 20,1948, the
i of a journalist and Communist
*arty member, Shcharansky
lusted from the Moscow In-
titute's Physics Department of
Computers and Applied
hematics in June 1972. An ex-
in computer technology and
emetics, he began work for a
esearch institute connected with
le oil and gas industry.
Shcharansky's application to
[emigrate was denied in 1974 on
the grounds that "it is against
i state interests." He soon became
the subject of continuous harass-
ment, surveillance and interroga-
tion as he joined the growing
ranks of Soviet Jewish refuseniks.
At times, as many as eight KGB
agents trailed him to monitor his
In early 1975, he was fired from
his job at the Moscow Research
Institute. In March 1975, after a
series of arrests, he was reported-
ly informed by the KGB: "Your
destiny is in our hands ... No one
in the West is interested in you
and what you are doing here and
nobody will say a word in the en-
tire world if there is one more
Prisoner of Conscience in the
Soviet Union."
Shcharansky became active in
the Helsinki Watch groups formed
to monitor Soviet compliance with
the Helsinki rights accords. More
important, he served as a key link
between Jews seeking to emigrate
and Russians and others wanting
to stay and liberalize the society.
David Shipler, The New York
Times correspondent in Moscow
when Shcharansky was arrested,
wrote in 1977 that "he was a con-
summate public relations man,
fluent in English and scrupulously
accurate with his facts, who acted
as a spokesman to the Western
press on behalf of Jewish
" As such, he was part of a chain
that Soviet authorities ... found
threatening, a chain of com-
munications that runs from the
dissidents through Western cor-
respondents to worldwide publica-
tions and back into the Soviet
Union again via foreign radio sta-
tions such as BBC and the Voice
<>f America."
In 1977, Shcharansky filed suit
rig with fellow activist Vladimir
Slepak whose emigration
-till no! i and
med thai Jews
imed as a result of the bro
casts of a blatantly anti-Semitic
television documentary, "Buyers
of Souls," which was apparently
aimed at the Soviet masses.
Shcharansky soon found himself
the subject of a vicious attack in
an article written by Dr. Sanya
Lipavsky, a former roommate,
and published in the Soviet
newspaper Izvestia. Lipavsky ac-
cused the Soviet activist of work-
ing for the Central Intelligence
Agency, a charge vehemently
denied by Shcharansky, and also
by then-President Jimmy Carter.
Ten days after the Izvestia arti-
cle, Shcharansky was arrested
and detained in Moscow's Lefor-
tovo Prison until his trial in July,
1978. He was convicted on
charges of "treason" and "anti-
Soviet agitation and propaganda"
and sentenced to 18 years in
prison and labor camps. He began
his term at Chistopol Prison, 500
miles east of Moscow.
Throughout his 18-month deten-
tion, while awaiting trial,
Shcharansky was held incom-
municado, unable to see or speak
to anyone except the Soviet secret
police. He was also not permitted
legal counsel, despite relentless
efforts by his family to secure an
attorney for him."
But Shcharansky defended
himself, despite being convinced
that his was "a hopeless case from
the very beginning all the more
so since I was declared guilty by
Izvestia a full year-and-a-half
before my trial took place and
even before the case was opened
and the investigation began.
"My people," Shcharansky con-
tinued, "have been oppressed all
over the world for 2,000 years.
Yet, in every place in which they
found themselves, they said again
and again, 'Next year in
Jerusalem.' Now, when I am fur-
ther than ever from mv people
and my A vital, when I face long
hard years of imprisonment, 1
turn to my people and my A vital
and say: 'Next year in Jerusalem.
Next year in Jerusalem.'"
Shcharansky's plight drew inter-
national attention and soon
became an issue continually plac-
ed on the U.S.-Soviet agenda.
Carter spoke out on his behalf, as
did numerous Congressmen and
lay and religious leaders. As the
Kremlin clamped down on Jewish
emigration, Shcharansky's pic-
ture soon adorned placards car-
ried by demonstrators urging his
freedom and an easing of the
plight of Jews in the Soviet Union.
In March. 1980, Shcharansky
was transferred from Chistopol to
the Perm Labor Camp in the
Urals. In April, his mother, Ida
Milgrom, and brother, Leonid,
were permitted to vist him for 24
hours the first time since his in-
itial imprisonment in 1978 that he
was allowed visitors. The follow-
ing September, they were again
granted a visitation permit for a
brief period, under heavy guard.
But Shcharansky's health began
to deteriorate. He wrote a letter
complaining of severe stomach
and back pains. In early 1981, he
was placed in solitary confine-
ment which, in addition to poor
food rations, led to a further
deterioration in his health. All of
his scheduled meetings in 1981
with family members were
abruptly cancelled, and his letter-
writing allotment was reduced.
In November of 1981, a surprise
transfer once again brought
Scharansky back to Chistopol
Prison. It was here, in September,
1982, on the eve of Yom Kippur,
that Shcharansky began a hunger
strike that would last 109 days.
The strike was to protest prison
officials' confiscation of his mail
and the refusal to allow him to
receive visits from his family,
despite such allowances under the
Soviet penal system. At the same
time, international support for
Shcharansky's release began to
gain momentum.
An appeal, one of the many, was
addressed to French President
Francois Mitterrand by exiled
Soviet physicist Andrei Sakharov,
urging the French leader to in-
tervene on Shcharansky's behalf.
There were also efforts to
negotiate an exchange of Major
Aleksei Koslov, a KGB spy held
captive in South Africa, for the
release of Shcharansky. That ef-
fort was unsuccessful. Meanwhile,
President Reagan also urged his
Shcharansky's hunger strike,
however, led to an unusual move
by then-Soviet leader Yuri An-
dropov. He sent a letter, dated
January 18, 1983, in which he
stated that Shcharansky "had
contact with his mother and ceas-
ed his hunger strike" in Chistopol
and that "there is not threat to his
life." The letter was in response
to an inquiry from French Com-
munist Party leader Georges
at the Concord

The hunger strike left
Shcharansky in critical condition,
and during a visit by his mother
and brother to Chistopol, he com-
plained of being unable to sleep
because of chest pains. In
January, 1984, he again went on a
hunger strike, though only for two
days, to protest the blocking of
mail sent to his wife, A vital.
In October, 1984, word was
received that Shcharansky had
been sent once again to the Perm
Labor Camp where he was im-
mediately hospitalized in a "pre-
heart attack" condition. He was
given medical treatment. Milgrom
spent two days with her son there
on January 14 and 15, 1985. In
January, 1986, Avital said her
husband had been sentenced to a
new six-month term in a labor
camp for going on still another
hunger strike, again protesting
restricted mail privileges. And
then it happened word was out
earlier this month that Shcharan-
sky would be released and allowed
to go to Israel.
Ref usenik Update
There is a curtain of silence regarding the situation of the
mathematician VLADIMIR LIFSHITZ, 48, who was arrested in
Leningrad on Jan. 8, and who is being investigated under Article
190/1 of the RSFSR Criminal Code "... Defaming the Soviet
State ..." ANNA LIFSHITZ, VLADIMIR'S wife, claims, in an
appeal addressed to her friends in the West that her husband's
defense is being deliberately sabotaged. She writes in part:
"The investigators refused to show me a paper written by
VLADIMIR concerning his wishes regarding a defense lawyer.
Thus they practically deprived him of his right to organize his
defense. I am sure that they do it intentionally. My numerous ap-
plications to Procurator General Rekunkov have brought no
results he never answered any of my telegrams. On Jan. 26 I
applied to the Dutch Embassy as an Israeli citizen and asked them
to ensure their participation in the case by having jurists from
Israel or Holland present at the trial. The same application was
sent to the Prcurator General of the USSR. I ask you to support
me in my efforts to organize the defense of VLADIMIR. Accor-
ding to our law, a person has the right to have several lawyers in
the courtroom.
"I beg you to apply to your governments to give us support. I
am afraid that in a short time it will be too late."
And in a cable to the First Secretary of the Communist Party
dated Feb. 1,1986, ANNA says:
"The Leningrad Procurator's office is conducting the investiga-
tion into the case of my husband VLADIMIR LIFSHITZ with
gross violations of the laws. The USSR Procurator's Office en-
courages these acts, not answering complaints. Now they intend
to try him on trumped-up charges.
"If these acts are not a matter of State policy to persecute Jews
who wish to emigrate to the State of Israel, I ask for your im-
mediate intervention."
Nineteen Leningrad refuseniks have signed a letter of protest
to the Procurator of the USSR regarding LIFSHITZ. They are:

tion would have been determined.
This caused some Arabs and
Israelis who "might have ac-
cepted some form of autonomy"
to block it "because they did not
want to deal with the ultimate
disposition that was to come at its
conclusion." Friedman favors
"open-ended" automony, under
which West Bank Arabs and
Israelis might slowly work out a
modus vivendi. Then, at some
point, an accommodation satisfac-
tory to both sides could be worked
Friedman would not agree that
functional autonomy is the
ultimate solution. On the con-
trary, he realzies that it would not
satisfy the maximum desires of
either side ." But it would be a
first step. And it would be one in
the right direction. In today's
Middle East even that would be
positively Utopian.

The featured topic is "The
Hassidic Lifestyle and Why it At-
tracts Jews From All
Backgrounds." "The stereotype
Hassid portrayed in novels by
cynical secular author has no
doubt confused the modern Jew
when he meets a modern Hassid
today" remarked Rabbi Raphael
Tennenhaus, coordinator of the
lecture series.
"So popular has the Hassidic
(especially Lubavitch) movement

Temple Beth El
On Friday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m.
there will be a "special" dedica-
tion of a Holocaust Torah from the
Kulturgemeinde in Prague by
Frank Steiner, who has spent his
retirement years travelling to the
cities and towns from which the
Holocaust Torahs originate.
This Torah is being donated by
Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Price in
honor of Theresa Schwarz and the
late Ernest I. Schwarz, parents of
Mrs. Price.
Steiner, our speaker, was born
in Czechoslovakia and became
associated with the H. Stern Com-
pany, the Caribbean jewelers in
St. Thomas, and as an executive
of its North American operation.
Through a coincidence, his
nephew in California visited a con-
gregation which was to dedicate a
Czech Torah received from the
Westminster Synagogue in Lon-
don. That Torah was from
Steiner's congregation in Ledec
and was the Torah used at his Bar
Mitzvah ceremony! As a result,
Frank Steiner and his wife Hana
have become involved with Project
Judaica, relating to The Precious
Legacy exhibit The two have
made countless trips to London
and are tracing the whereabouts
of the Torahs distribtued to con-
gregations and relating them to
the Czech communities from
which they came. The Steiners
have made it their responsibility
to learn as much about the cities
and towns from which the
Holocaust Torahs originate and
pass the information on to the
people whose Temples now house
the Torahs. They sift through ar-
chives and research materials of
the world's libraries, compiling
histories Czech communities.
They rely on a few historians and
Jewish organizations for help and
sometimes are lucky to find sur-
vivors and incorporate their
testimony in their research.
Returning by popular demand,
Max Janowski, one of America's
leading composers and educators
of Jewish music and an arranger
of Jewish liRurgy, sponsored by
the Weinstein Foundation, will be
the Composer-in-Residence on
Friday, March 14 and Saturday,
March 15. At Shabbat service on
Friday evening, at 8 p.m., Max
Janowski will give a concert with
our augmented professional choir.
Among the compositions to be
performed will be the Avinu
Malkeynu "Our Father, Our
King/(from the High Holy Day
Service), Sim Shalom, "Grant Us
Peace," Ashrey Hagafrur, "Bless-
ed Is The Match," (a Chanukah
Prayer) and Mah Y'didot
Miahk'notecha, "How Lovely Are
Your Dwelling Place." Professor
Janowski will also make a few
remarks about Jewish music and
he will lead the congregation in
the singing of some Hebrew
songs. At a special Shabbat ser-
vice on Saturday morning at 11
a.m., he will serve as the Cantor
and will continue his discussion of
liturgical music.
It is difficult to convey any idea
of the amount of Jewish musk
that Mr. Janowski has composed
individual liturgical pieces, folk
songs, music for choirs and
choruses, children's songs,
oratories based on the Bible, can-
tatas and Shabbat and Holiday
Service. More than a hundred of
his works have been published or
recorded and he has been commis-
sioned to write musical scores by
numerous congregations in honor
of some special occasion or of
some distinguished leader.
In addition to synagogues,
many colleges and universities
throughout the country have been
cognizant of the Jewish music
composed by Max Janowski and
have called upon him to lecture on
Jewish music. Much of his music is
now in the repetoires of their
music departments. His Avinu
Malkeynu and his Sim Shalom
(dedicated to the U.N.'s Ralph
Bundle in recognition of his con-
tribution to the Arab-Israeli ar-
mistice following the Israeli War
of Independence) are composi-
tions which have become cherish-
ed possessions of innumerable
synagogues and even of non-
Jewish religious groups.
Since Max Janowski's last visit
to Temple Beth El in 1983, he has
actively continued his composition
of Jewish music. He has composed
music for a new Service for
Neilah, the concluding Service of
Yom Kippur He has also compos-
ed music for Psalm 150
"Halleluyah, Praise G-d In His
Sanctuary." He has recorded
another album of his Jewish music
in Oakland, California, with Can-
tor Bruce Benson, a Chamber Or-
chestra and a Choir.
The Shabbat Service starts at 8
p.m. The public is invited.

Marilyn Klinghoffer Dead at 58
NEW YORK (JTA) Marilyn Klinghoffer,
the widow of Leon Klinghoffer who was
murdered by Palestinian terrorists during the
sea-jacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille
Lauro last October, died recently at Lenox Hill
Hospital, reportedly of cancer. She was 58
years old and lived in Manhattan.
Klinghoffer and her husband were among the
several hundred passengers aboard the cruise
ship when it was hijacked off the Egyptian
coast by Palestinian terrorists who demanded
freedom of Palestinians held in prisons in
Leon Klinghoffer became the sole fatality of
the two-day ordeal when he was shot and killed
by the terrorists who then dumped his body into
the Mediterranean. His body later washed
ashore on the Syrian coast and was subsequent-
ly returned to the U.S. for burial.
Klinghoffer's strength in the face of the inci-
dent gained her national attention. She recently
sought to sell the rights of her and Leon's story
of the Achille Lauro hijacking to a production
company for a television docu-drama.
Marilyn Klinghoffer worked since 1972 for
Gralla Publications in New York, beginning in
the circulation department and eventually mov-
ing up to become assistant personnel director.
She was also involved in Jewish organizations,
including B'nai B'rith.
Shortly after the Achille Lauro affair, the
President and the First Lady met with the en-
tire Klinghoffer family in New York. She also
appeared before the House Foreign Affairs
Subcommittee on International Operations,
where she declared,
"I believe that my husband's death has made
a difference in the way that people now
perceive their vulnerability. I believe that what
happened to the passengers on the Achille
Lauro and to my family can happen to anyone,
at any time, at any place."
The spokesperson said the Leon Klinghoffer
Memorial Foundation, established after the
Achille Lauro incident, will change its name to
the Leon and Marilyn Klinghoffer Memorial
Foundation, and that the family intends to con-
tinue on with the foundation's work of fighting
