Super Sunday Breaks Record;
Raised in 12 Hours
SUPER SUNDAY Margo Reines was one
of hundreds of volunteers who called South
Broward Jewish residents on Super Sunday
1986. A record-breaking $515,000 was rais-
ed in just 12 hours, making this the most
successful Super Sunday in South
Broward's history.
Thank you friends.
The generosity and spirit of the
South Broward Jewish communi-
ty helped make Super Sunday
1986 the best ever a record-
breaking year.
In just 12-hours, more than 500
volunteers took over the offices of
the Jewish Federation of South
Broward and called more than
10,000 Jewish families in South
And their phone calls were
answered generously.
Our Super Star volunteers rais-
ed $515,000 a new all-time
record for Super Sunday in South
Broward. Super Sunday '86 easily
surpassed 1985's record total of
$350,000, and even surpassed the
goal of a half a million dollars.
But Super Sunday '86 was the
climax of a fantastic week for the
1986 United Jewish Ap-
peal/Federation Campaign, begin-
ning with Super Synagogue Week
when volunteers from South
Broward's 10 shuls called their
fellow members. South Broward's
10 synagogues raised $65,000 dur-
ing Super Synagogue Week.
And that brought the grand
total for Super Synagogue Week
and Super Sunday to $580,000.
And that's a record too.
The week-long events reached a
festive spirit when hundreds of
volunteers and supporters
celebrated "super week" on
Super Saturday Night at the
Hallandale Jewish Center.
Danny Tadmore and his Israeli
rock band performed, the "Sabra
Dancers" danced and radio per-
sonality Barry Farber spoke about
the soul of the Jewish people and
why it is their responsibility to
But it was Super Sunday '86
which served as a climax to a
super week.
Volunteers kept coming in
throughout the day. There was an
overflow crowd of volunteers
manning the more than 40 phones
at the Federation. Volunteers
were clamoring for open phones.
Outside lines were at a premium.
"I go $500 ... I got $200 ... I
got $100..." volunteers
repeatedly shouted throughout
the day.
"I think it's stupendous," said
Bobbi Gotkin, a co-chairperson for
Super Sunday '86. "I never knew
so many people cared so much."
Mrs. Gotkin said people not only
gave money, but they gave of

Interesting Questions and Answers About Purim
Purim is truly unique. It is a
holiday whose message and
power have endured for over
2,000 years.
The special quality of Purim is
reflected in the. intriguing
customs associated with both its
synagogue and home celebration.
"Blotting out" Hainan's name,
the greggar, masquerading,
mishloach manot, Purim spiels
and becoming slightly inebriated
are all part of the rich and colorful
tradition of this holiday of
1. Why do we make noise
when Hainan's name is read
from the Megillah?
The custom has fascinating
Biblical origins. Exodus, Chapter
17, describes a bitter battle in the
wilderness between the Israelites
and the soldiers of King Amalek.
Although Israel prevailed, the
Torah records G-d saying to
Moses: "Write this for a memorial
in the book ... I will utterly blot
out the remembrance of Amalek
from under the heavens." (Ex-
odus 17:14) In Deuteronomy
25:15, this curse on Amalek is
repeated: "... You shall blot out
the remembrance of Amalek from
under heaven; you shall not
forget." The sense of the passage
is clear. G-d is telling the Children
of Israel that the descendants of
Amalek will always be their
enemies and thus to "blot them
Indeed, history proved that to
be true. Many years later, Agag,
then king of Amalek, became a
bitter foe of the Jewish people, a
slaughterer of women and
children. In fact, King Saul was
dethroned for sparing Agag's life
after Israel's military victory over
the Amalekites. The prophet
Samuel executed Agag, and the
name of Amalek was "blotted
out" once more.
All of which brings us to
Hainan. Turning to the Book of
Esther (3:1), we see that Hainan is
identified as "the son of Ham-
medatha the Agagite," in short, a
direct descendant of Amalek! It is
reasonable to assume that the
author of Esther deliberately
forged a bond between Amalek
and Haman so as to accentuate
Haman's evil character.
Remembering the ancient injunc-
tion to "blot out" Amalek's name,
the Jews proceeded to do just that
not by violence, but through
noise. The custom of "blotting
out" the name of Haman was thus

Klaus Barbie Trial Postponed Until 1987
By Edwin Eytan
PARIS, March 5 broadening the charges against Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie,
has set back his trial date by at least a year. Barbie, who has
been in French custody since his ouster from Bolivia in
February, 1983, will not go on trial until early 1987, at the
soonest, according to court sources here.
The Appeals Court decided that the former Gestapo chief in
Lyon, responsible for the mass deportation of French Jews and
other atrocities during World War II, can be charged with war
crimes as well as crimes against humanity for which he has
already been indicted. The court acted on the request of five
associations of former resistance fighters and individual sur-
vivors of the anti-Nazi French underground.
Crimes against humanity, for which there is no statute of
limitations, includes crimes committed against civilians, in Bar-
bie's case mainly Jews. War crimes, which are governed by a
statute of limitations, include crimes against resistance fighters.
The court, by its ruling waived the statute.
The Appeals Court also ordered that a new investigating
magistrate, Jean Pascal, the Court President, undertake the
war crimes investigations, replacing magistrate Christian Riss
who completed the investigation of crimes against humanity
some time ago. Court sources said the new investigation could
take months.
The Appeals Court decision, which means another postpone-
ment of Barbie's trial after several previous postponements, has
not been linked to the legislation elections scheduled for Mar.
16. But many commentators here have said the government was
anxious to avoid a possible political scandal during the pre-
election period.
Barbie's lawyer, Jacques Verges, has warned that he in-
tends to "shed all the light" on the betrayal of France's wartime
resistance leader, Jean Moulin, who was murdered by the
Gestapo. He has implied that he has evidence that other
resistance leaders turned Moulin over to the Nazis for personal
and political reasons. Many of them are still alive ana occupy
respectable positions in the French establishment.
Barbie, 73, has been confined to Mont Luc prison in Lyon
since his arrival ii France on February 5, 1983. Known as "the
Butcher of Lyon," he was twice sentenced to death in absentia
in 1952 and 1954 by French military courts. But those
sentences are now void because of the statute of limitations.

Herut Party
Is In Serious
By David Landau
15th convention of Herut found
the party in its most serious state
of disarray since Menachem
Begin's sudden resignation from
the Premiership in 1983.
The festive ceremonials hardly
masked the bitter internal power
struggle that had not been resolv-
ed up to the time the 1,900
delegates and distinguished
guests took their seats in the huge
Jerusalem convention center.
It is a three-way struggle pit-
ting party leader Yitzhak Shamir
and his close associate, Minister
Without-Portfolio Moshe Arens.
against Housing Minister David
Levy, a rising star in Herut, and
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry Ariel Sharon, its most
outspoken hardliner.
Shamir, who is Deputy Premier
and Foreign Minister, is expected
to become Premier next October
under the rotation of power agree-
ment of the Labor-Likud unity
coalition government. But he
faces a powerful challenge from
the Levy and Sharon factions
which are allied, if only
Shamir insisted in a radio inter-
view that the internal differences
are "organizational and personal
not ideological" and therefore
not "so important."
The party leadership failed,
however, in a last-minute effort to
arrange a truce. It rejected a de-
mand by Sharon for a three-way
split of representation and
power at the convention bet-
ween the Shamir, Levy and his
own factions. Shamir and Arens
dismissed the idea, maintaining
that their strength exceeds that of
Sharon and Levy combined. Now
they must prove it.
Levy launched his most bitter
public attack to date against
Shamir in a radio interview
recently, only hours before the
convention opened. He accused
the party leader of using
undemocratic tactics to pack the
convention with his supporters.
The climactic moment is expected
to come when the delegates cast
ballots for the next Herut
Nominally, Begin still holds that
position. But he has been living in
seclusion since his retirement, has
not taken an active role in party
affairs and is not attending the
convention. Nevertheless, he is
the much revered founder of
Herut, the leader who brought it
out of the political wilderness nine

Evil In History
(A Purim Poem)

Bat justice still cries. "The story of Evil Regimes most be
Told and retold until youth can build a world of reason and
of compassion
Lest we are doomed to more burnings.
History has its mountaintops where human spirit and
brilliance give a vision of what is possible.
History has its pits of despair where human degradation
sinks beyond belief
The schools most teach both.
So that students can recognise evil and overcome it.
So that students can identify truth and possess it.
For the lesson of Evil Regimes is meant for those of every
race, religion, creed.
Indifference before cruelty is to begin one's own
The individual may be literate, well adjusted in home and
community, obey the law, and yet fall short of being an ade-
quate citizen if he fails to make the welfare of all people his
proper responsibility.
It is right that Evil Regimes be included in social studies
because teachers must extol the sanctity of life. Until that
learning takes hold, stability and contentment will remain
When the common welfare is the concern of each, then
perhaps, the victims of Evil Regimes may find meaning in
their sacrifice.
Then perhaps, justice will be done
As children, at last, look without fear into their future and
Pause in their play to wonder at the miracle of a butterfly on

the day's outcome.
"We raised more money than I

gratitude to a "very warm and

Throughout the day, local

State Rep. Fred Lippman, State
Rep. Irma Rochlin, Hollywood
Mayor Mara Giulianti and
Hollywood Commissioner Guy

Approximately 70 percent of

Begin is an unabashed sup-
porter of Shamir, and in a
message read from the podium, he
urged the delegates to unite under
the leadership of Shamir. It was
an explicit endorsement of Shamir
to succeed him. But Levy's sup-
porters were unfazed. When the
young Deputy Premier and Hous-
ing Minister entered the conven-
tion hall he was greeted by a lusty
chorus of "David, King of Israel."
If Shamir is not elected party

NEW YORK, N.Y. The celebration of the joyous holiday of
Purim provides the theme for the latest edition of "Jewish Televi-
sion Magazine," a monthly magazine-format program produced
by the Council of Jewish Federations. The series is currently be-
ing seen in over 35 markets across the United States and Canada.
The Jewish Federation of South Broward sponsors "Jewish
Television Magazine" on two local cable TV companies.
Hollywood Cable airs the program on Channel 14 (k>) on Mon-
days at 4:30 p.m. Selkirk airs the show on Channel 30 on Mondays
at 3:30 p.m. and Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m.
The March program begins with a look at some of the quaint
and interesting ritual art objects associated with Purim, including
some noisemakers that date back for centuries arid have par-
ticular aesthetic or historical significance.
The second segment shows what happens to Jewish ritual ob
jects and sacred books when they are old and worn and can nc
longer be used. For centuries, such items have been buried in
what is called a "geniza." The segment takes viewers to Chicago,
where the traditional "geniza" ceremony was recently reenacted
at a Jewish cemetery, with local Hebrew school children par-
ticipating in this profoundly moving service.
Children are also featured in the program's third segment,
which highlights an exciting new program that teaches
youngsters in Israel how to play tennis. A growing network of
Israel Tennis Centers enables youngsters from all over the coun-
try to learn the game, to make friends, to have fun even to
become world-class tennis champions! In a country frequently
beset by wars and terrorism, this free program provides children
from all social and economic backgrounds with "rackets, not
The March edition of JTV is rounded out with a segment show-
ing children in Israel excitedly preparing to celebrate the holiday
of Purim.
Hosting the series is film and television actor Stephen Macht,
currently best known to viewers for his featured role on "Cagney
and Lacey."
The Council of Jewish Federations is the national association of
200 Jewish Federations, the central community organizations
which serve nearly 800 localities embracing a Jewish population
of more than 5.7 million in the U.S. and Canada.
Established in 1932, CJF helps strengthen the work and the im-
pact of Jewish Federations by developing programs to meet
changing needs, providing an exchange of successful community
experiences, establishing guidelines for fundraising and opera-
tions and engaging in joint planning and action on common pur-
poses dealing with local, regional and international needs.

The Terrorist Sideshow Middle East Human Rights
By M.J. Rosenberg
Near East Report
Not everyone is convinced that mindless terrorism was behind
the outrages at Rome and Vienna airports last December. In fact,
one California-based Middle East analyst, Peter Borden, argues
that the airport attacks were strategically staged "to provoke a
confrontation between Israeli-operated U.S. weapons systems
and Soviet SAMs" in Lebanon's Bekaa valley. In his view, the
goal of the terrorists was to ignite an Israeli-Syrian war rather
than to merely stage a spectacular act of mass murder.
Borden makes a persuasive case. He says that the "seeds" for
the recent acts of terror were sown during the first days of the
1982 Lebanon war. At that time, Israel confronted a network of
Syrian anti-aircraft missile batteries in the Bekaa. "In the
resulting battle," he writes, "Israel destroyed 19 batteries,
severely damaged four, and downed 86 MiG fighters without the
loss of a single plane Simply put. the Soviet air defense
systems and tactics were proven totally inadequate, which placed
great pressure on the Soviets to modify and re-test them under
similar conditions." A terrorist-provoked war could provide the
test conditions the Soviets and Syrians may want.
Borden asserts that this is not the first time that Moscow and
Damascus have attempted to use diversionary attacks to either
instigate a war or to draw attention from war plans already made.
In September, 1973, three weeks before the Yom Kippur War,
Syria engaged Israeli pilots in an air battle during which the
Israelis downed 13 MiGs. He notes that "the press and Israeli in-
telligence incorrectly interpreted increased Syrian military
moves which were actually final war preparations as a
response to this air battle. Then, 16 days later, two terrorists
belonging to the Syrian-controlled Saiqa branch of the PLO hi-
jacked a train carrying Soviet Jewish refugees from Moscow to
Vienna." Prime Minister Golda Meir flew to Austria and, like
most other Israelis, was preoccupied with a hostage drama while
the Syrians and Egyptians finalized their war plans. She returned
to Israel on Oct. 3 just in time for the surprise attack that
almost destroyed the Jewish state. The Syrian diversion had paid
off handsomely.
Borden points out that last December's attacks like 1973's
were carried out by Syrian-backed terrorists. Italian authorities
testify that they flew to their European destinations from
Damascus. Borden plays down the Libyan connection, believing
that it is Syria not the largely irrelevant Libya that calls
most of the radical shots in the Middle East. He believes that
Syria expected Israel to retaliate against Syrian missile sites in
the Bekaa, thereby revealing the "state-of-the-art" of Israeli
technology vis-a-vis Soviet air defense systems.
It didn't happen. In Borden's view, war was averted by two
decisions. "First, whether intended or not, the Reagan Ad-
ministration's early threats of a military response against Libya
and reports of naval movements in the Mediterranean
diverted public pressure for a quick response by Israel." Second,
the Israelis understood the Syrian's strategy and were determin-
ed not to play into their hands. It will deal with the Syrian missile
threat at a time of its choosing, not of Syria's. Borden believes
that both the U.S. response to Libya (itself diversionary) and
Israel's restraint were appropriate. They reduced tension and
averted war.
However, neither Israel's problem nor Washington's is
over Both the Soviets and Syrians still need to test their air
systems against "competently-handled Western weapons. Since
the Middle East is the only possible locale for this test, the
Syrians and Soviets can be expected to press Israel and the
I nited States until one occurs." He concludes that it "would Ik-
naive to think that because terrorism did not achieve its aims this
one time. Syria and the Soviets will drop it from their ban of
future options."
Borden's view can be described as depressing or even cynical.
But a better word is realistic. In any event, cynicism about the
Soviets and the Syrians is warranted by 40 years of their Middle
East trouble-making. One can only hope that this time the cynical
view will be proven overly pessimistic. Not likely though.

Assistant Editor
Near East Report
One item from the Middle East
stands out among all others in the
State Department's new Country
Report on Human Rights Prac-
tices for 1985. Citing the listings of
Freedom House, a New York-
based human rights monitoring
organization, the report ranks 11
members of the Arab League as
"not free" and 10 plus non-
member Egypt as "partly
free." As in past reports, in 1985
the only Middle Eastern state
described as "free" is Israel.
Of Israel's neighbors, Syria.
Saudi Arabia and Iraq fall into the
"not free' category. Egypt. .lor

In Syria, "Hafez Assad, as
President, Commander-in-
Chief. and Secretary General
of the Syrian Ba'ath Party, wields
virtually absolute power." The
party functions mainly to
legitimize Assad's dictatorship.
The "ferocity" with which
Assad's minority Alawite regime
repressed the Sunni Moslem
Brotherhood in Hama in 1982
killing as many as 20,000
residents "remains ever-
present in the minds of the Syrian
people and has apparently suc-
ceeded in discouraging anti-
regime activity." Police and
security officials pervade Syrian
society; the regime permits no
public criticism. Detention
without charge of trial and torture
and disappearance of suspects ap-
parently is routine.
Similar conditions prevail in
Iraq. President Saddam Hussein
"holds decisive power as Presi-
dent of the Republic, Chairman of
the Council and Secretary
General" of the Iraqi branch of
the Arab Ba'ath Socialist Party.
Tight domestic controls imposed
for security reasons as a result of
the war with Iran help keep
political and individual rights
"sharply limited."
Iraqi news media are censored.
"To control the dissemination of
political leaflets, typewriters and
photocopying machines must be
registered." In addition, "anti-
regime activity is dealt with har-
shly, often by extralegal means
employed by a large and feared in-
ternal security police force and
the intelligence services ... Ex-

method" for dealing with those
Hussein sees as opponents.
Saudi Arabia continues to be
ruled by the sons of its founder,
King Abd Al Aziz (Ibn Saud). They
"have preponderant influence" in
choosing a new monarch when a
vacancy occurs. "There are no
elected assemblies or political par-
ties, and non-religious public
assembly and demonstrations are
not permitted."
The systemic brutality of the
Syrian and Iraqi police states is
absent from Saudi Arabia.
However, the Saudis follow
Islamic law (Shari'a) which
"makes no provision for bail or
habeas corpus. Prisoners may be
held for months while an in-
vestigation proceeds before being
either charged or released." Saudi
Arabia "imposes capital punish-
ment for the crimes of
premeditated murder, adultery,
apostasy from Islam and, depen-
ding on the circumstances, rape
and armed robbery." Last year
executions in the first nine mon-
ths rose to 34 from no more than
five for the same period in 1984.
Public flogging can be ordered for
infringement of some Islamic
precepts, amputation of a hand
for thieves convicted of repeat
Riyadh is believed to employ "a
wide network of informants .. .
Criticism of Islam and the ruling
family is not allowed." The press
is privately owned but in practice
is under government control. By
religious and social custom,
"women do not enjoy equality
with men."

By Morris J. Amitay
In 1977, when Georgetown
University in Washington ac-
cepted a $750,000 donation from
Libya for endowment of a chair of
Arab culture, Art Buchwald, the
humorist, was prompted to ask in
his column whether the Universi-
ty might also set up a "Brezhnev
Studies Program in Human
Rights" or an "Idi Amin Chair in
Genocide." Johns Hopkins
University's School for Advanced
International Studies, located
near Washington, also accepted a
grant of $1 million from the Arab
world for Middle Eastern studies.
Last October the Saudis
graciously offered the Smithso-
nian Institute a $5 million grant,
but with stipulations. The Saudis
wanted an entire wing devoted to
Islamic culture. Considering the
size of the gift, the size of the re-
quest and the relatively small size
of the museum the gift caused
some controversy.
Frederick Dutton, Washington
counsel to the Saudi government,
clarified the Saudi perspective
"what annoys me is they've got
this Holocaust thing (museum)
here, and fine, they should have it,
but they don't want a quality
Islamic thing that would be under
the Smithsonian's control.
But academia and the arts are
not the only areas in which Saudi
Arabia throws money around in
Washington. Besides generous re-
tainers to lobbyists like Dutton to
represent their interests here, the
Saudis entertain in grand style.
Earlier this month the Saudi
Embassy threw a spectacular
reception which even impressed
the jaded social writers of the
Washington Pott. The Post story
reported that, "Money was spread
like the sands of Arabia and glit-
ter gushed like an oil well when
His Royal Highness Prince Ban-
dar Bin Sultan, the Saudi Arabian
ambassador, entertained last
The Post specualted that this
was probably the city's "most ex-
pensive single event ever" to
display a nation's "culture in
this case this included cast and
crew of 200 with no less than 70
Just how long the Saudis will be
able to continue to display their
opulence is a matter of conjecture
with crude oil prices on the spot
market dipping below 12 dollars a
barrel. Already huge development
projects in the desert kingdom are
being cancelled or modified and
foreign contractors complain of
late payments. But this apparent-
ly has not dampened the Saudi ap-
petite for the latest in U.S.,
British and French arms. Under
consideration now is a Saudi re
quest for some $850 million in ad-
ditional missiles. One of these is
the latest air-to -air Sidewidner
missile. While the r.s. Air Foi
makes do with about a do
reloads per aircraft in its fighter
inventory, the Saudis would have
three times as many another
example of the "if you've got it
flaunt it" mentality that seems to
pervade Saudi thinking.
But winning friends and influen-
cing people here in the United
States is not always a matter of
money. A Saudi Embassy official
at the bash described above was
quoted as saying, "We hope to
have many more parties like this
one. We want the American peo-
ple to know what Saudi Arabia is
really like."
Fortunately, more and more
Americans realize exactly what it
is really like and that is why it will
be increasingly difficult for the
Saudis to sell their anti-Israel line
in this countr\
Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor:
This holiday celebrates the rescue of the Jews in ancient Persia
(present-day Iran) over 2,000 years ago.
The story tells us of Haman. the right hand man of the Persian
emperor, who cast lots for a certain day, to slaughter, and an-
nihilate, all the Jews, throughout the empire, governing 127 na-
tions from India to Ethiopia. His sinister plan was thwarted by
beautiful Esther, a Jewess, who was the emperor's queen, and
aided by her uncle and guardian Mordechai. Haman, himself with
his offspring, were hanged.
Purim is one of the most popular secular holidays, based on the
teachings and events of the Scrolls of Esther. Those scrolls are
unique in their form because they happened in the Diaspora the
Jewish dispersion. It links the destiny of the Jews the world over.
We celebrate the courage, bravery, unity and harmony of the
Jews against the eternal animosity towards us, as portrayed by
the wicked Haman.
Purim stresses, strength, self pride, resistance to anti-
Semitism, which changes in form, style or approach. Purim is a
yearly reminder to us that we have enemies, and they in the end,
can not, and will not triumph and succeed to destroy us.
Haman, himself a descendant of Amalek, was not the first, nor
the last mortal enemy of the Jews. The ancient amalekites, tried
to destroy us at the dawn of our national existence as a people.
There were four infamous anti-Semites (among others) with
names starting with "H." They were:
1) Haman
2) Hmielniclri, a Polish renegade, turned Ukrainian Chieftain,

Jacob Javits Political Maverick Dead at 81
By Susan Binbaum
NEW YORK (JTA) Funeral
services were held in New York's
Central Synagogue for Jacob
Javits, four-term United States
Senator from New York, who died
earlier this month of cardiac ar-
rest while on vacation in West
Palm Beach. He was 81 years old.
Thousands attended the services
which were held at Central
Synagogue in Manhattan.
Javits, the son of Jewish im-
migrant parents, rose from pover-
ty on the Lower East Side of New
York to become the longest-
serving Senator in the U.S. Con-
gress and one of the biggest vote-
getters in American history. A
political maverick, he ran as a
liberal Republican in every
political race, beating out well-
known Democrats in overwhelm-
ingly Democratic bastions.
Always a minority in the minori-
ty party, Javits became a cham-
pion of liberal causes, borrowing
the sensibilities of his youth in
New York's Jewish ghetto and ex-
panding them to embrace all
minorities. He was a moving force
behind the civil rights movement,
fair treatment for the poor and
elderly, guaranteed pensions for
retired persons, and, in the end, of
the right to die with dignity.
His career was a true American
dream. Jacob Koppel Javits was
born May 18, 1904 in a Stanton
Street tenement where his father,
Morris, was the janitor. Morris
Jawetz from Galicia, who changed
the name's spelling in America lik-
ed to say he believed the name's
origin lay in the Biblical family of
scribes of Jabez, near Jerusalem.
His mother, Ida Littman, was a
native of Safed in Ottoman
Palestine, who came to America
by way of Russia. She helped sup-
port the family by peddling sun-
dry wares from a pushcart.
The family moved to Brooklyn
and then Washington Heights,
later to be Javits' stepping-off
point in his political career. He put
himself through Columbia Univer-
sity and New York University
Law School nights while working
days in a print shop and a pipe fac-
tory. He passed the New York Bar
while clerking in his brother Ben's
law firm, then joined the
Republican Party with the cam-
paign of New York City Mayor
Fiorello LaGuardia. He chose, he
said, the party of Lincoln, which
he considered the "party of
His political career began in
1946 when he surprised all by win-
ning the 21st District of. New
York, the Washington Heights-
Inwood area of upper Manhattan
heavily populated by German
Jews. After two terms as Con-
gressman, Javits was elected New
York State Attorney General. In
1956, he won his first term as
Senator. Javits' strong Jewish
sentiments and his staunch sup-
port for the Jewish State made
him an unsurpassed favorite with
Jewish voters across the political
spectrum. At no time in his long
career of public service did he
ever forget or fail to mention his
origins. He was a long-time
member of several major Jewish
organizations. He was active in
B'nai B'rith and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, for which he served as
honorary vice-chairman more
than 25 years. In 1981, Javits was
awarded the ADL's Haym
Salomon Award.
In January 1985, Javits received
a special presentation of the Com-
munity Achievement Award of
the American ORT Federation
(AOF). Javits was an AOF Board
member since the 1940's, when he
visited ORT training centers in
the German DP camps immediate-
ly after World War II. His
testimony before Congress helped
focus attention on the plight of the
refugees, and an ORT's help in
preparing them for their new
In October, 1984, Javits receiv-
ed a Public Service Achievement
of the United Jewish Appeal-
Federation of Jewish Philan-
thropies of New York. Earlier this
month, the first Jacob Javits
Humanitarian Award of the UJA
Young Leadership was awarded
to Elie Wiesel, chairman of the
United States Holocaust
Memorial Council. Javits was also
active in the Zionist Organization
of America, the American Jewish
Committee, UJA-Federation, and
the America-Israel Cultural
Javits' record in Congress
bespoke his overriding involve-
ment with his Jewish heritage.
"I've always felt close to
Judaism," he remarked in an in-
terview with The Jewish Week
(New York). "Its precepts
animated my public and private
careers ... My heritage is the
stuff of the Prophets."
Asked to comment on his
perception of the American
Jewish community, Javits
responded that he felt it was
"healthy and vigorous ... I
believe there is an enhanced con-
sciousness of the position of Jews
on earth."
Addressing the issue of black-
Jewish relations, he said "it is
regrettable that a strain has
Sen. Jacob Javits
developed between the black
minority and the Jewish communi-
ty. But I believe that time and
good work on both sides will heal
that breach and again secure the
natural alliance for human rights
and for civil rights and liberties.
On Israel, he remarked, "I
believe Israel will live to see a day
when it is a real leader in the af-
fairs of mankind, and this goes for
science, technology and health, as
well as moral and spiritual leader-
ship and international security."
Maintaining his rights as an
American Jew. however, he
counseled that "Jews in the
United States should not be in-
hibited respecting criticism of
Israel while we should give
our full support to Israel for
security and economic well-being,
we must recognize its right to
have an independent point of view
and policy."
In 1980, Javits suffered his first
defeat at the polls, losing his
23-year Senate seat to then-
unknown Alfonse D'Amato, a
Supervisor from Hempstead,
Long Island. Javits was then
beginning to show the signs of the
debilitating motor neuron disease
from which he suffered
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS), more commonly known as
Lou Gehrig's Disease, after the
baseball player who died of the
then-unfamiliar illness.
Javit's loss of his Senate seat
cost him the prize he had sought
so long, the chairmanship of the
Foreign Relations Committee, the
post that would have been his as
the Republicans became the ma-
jority party in the Senate for the
first time in his career.
Javits' colleagues bid farewell to
their longtime colleague in an
hour-long tribute on the Senate
floor, saying goodbye not just to a
Senator but to a legend.

will spark the festivities as he
entertains at Temple Beth

Rabbis to Promote
Tourism to Israel
More than 200 Convervative,
Reform and Orthodox Rabbis
from 52 Jewish communities in
the United States and Canada,
who attended on short notice a
special Rabbinic conference in
Israel on expansion of tourism,
have pledged to organize a total of
390 tour groups this year "as part
of our identification with Israel
and our heritage."
During the three-day con-
ference, the Rabbis met with
Prime Minister Shimon Peres,
President Chaim Herzog, Finance
Minister Yitzhak Moda'i, Tourism
Minister Avraham Sharir and
other leading members of the
Israel Government, as well as
representatives of Israel's
tourism, travel and hotel in-
dustries. The conference was
organized by the Israel Bond
Organization at the invitation of
the Israel Ministry of Tourism and
received the cooperation of the
Synagogue Council of America
and El Al Israel Airlines.
In his address at the closing con-
ference dinner, Prime Minister
Peres stressed that "nothing
equals the effect of actually
visiting Israel in strengthening
Jewish identification," a theme
which was also echoed by Minister
Calling the Rabbis "the discern-
ing eyes of your communities,"
President Herzog said: "It is a
great experience to personally
feel the pulsing life beyond the
headlines in Israel. To see, savor,
understand and identify with
Israel is surely one of the chief
positive experiences of the
modern Jew."
The Rabbis also met with Dr.
Yosef Burg, minister of religious
affairs and Tel Aviv Mayor
Shlomo Lahat, and participated in
workshops with representaties of
the Tourism Ministry, El Al, the
Israel Hotels Association and tour
promotion companies.
David B. Hermelin, interna-
tional campaign chairman of
Israel Bonds and co-chairman for
tourism of "Operation In-
dependence," summed up the con-
ference by saying that "we are all
deeply convinced that the com-
bination of a visit to Israel and
travel via El Al must be the safest
and most rewarding way of spen-
ding holiday time anywhere in the
world today."
The special conference was
chaired by Rabbi Stanley Davids,
of Worcester, Mass., chairman of
the National Rabbinic Cabinet of
Israel Bonds, and Rabbi Mayer
Abramowitz, of Miami Beach,
cabinet co-chairman and chairman
of its toursim effort.

and deeply committed supporter.
He was an extraordinary journalist, combining a gifted clarity
of expression with a rare depth of Jewish learning, general
knowledge and penetrating analysis.
He not only reported history, he helped shape it. He saved many
Jewish lives, often with amazing courage and with great danger
to himself. Only some of these actions are recorded in his inspir-
ing book, In the Service of My People. Many will never be known.
He ardently believed in the goals and principles of CJF. He
never missed a General Assembly so long as his health permitted.
His presence was always welcomed by his host of friends among
the community and national leaders in attendance who consulted
him and learned from him with great appreciation.
The quality of his accounts of the General Assemblies was un-
surpassed, filling the pages of JTA's daily bulletins. He took
special interest in observing and reporting CJF's Board meetings
and quarterly sessions. Throughout the year he was a frequent
visitor at the CJF offices, interviewing CJF presidents and staff,
studying CJF reports, and reporting CJF actions in his weekly in-
ternationally syndicated columns and in JTA news bulletins and
He honored CJF by donating the royalties of one of his books to
advance CJF's work. And CJF was privileged to honor him by
establishing the annual Smolar Awards to recognize and en-
courage the highest standards of Jewish journalism, focussed on
North American Jewish communal developments.
The core of all that he was and did was his impecable integrity
and saintly personality kind, considerate, civilized, generous.
We shall all miss him, greatly.

Purim A Day of Feasting, Gladness Readers Write
The story recounted in Megillat Esther
(Scroll of Esther) took place during the reign
of King Ahasuerus of Persia. When Queen
Vashti refused to obey the order of the King
to appear before him at an eleborate ban-
quet, he deposed her. After a long search for
a queen, the King chose Esther, the beautiful
cousin of Mordecai, a Jew, to replace Vashti.
It happened that Mordecai, who sat in the
King's courtyard to learn of the well-being of
Esther, heard of a plot to kill Ahasuerus. He
revealed this to Esther who informed the
King. This event was recorded in the royal
book of chronicles.
Shortly thereafter, Haman, the favorite
minister of Ahasuerus, sought to annihilate
the Jews in the kingdom in revenge against
Mordecai, who because of religious scruples,
refused to bow down before him. To select
the day for destroying the Jews, Haman cast
lots (purim) which fell on the 13th day of
Adar. Hence, the name of the festival is
Haman approached Ahasuerus with the
plea: "There is a certain people scattered
abroad and dispersed among the peoples in
all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their
laws are diverse from those of every people;
neither keep they the King's laws; therefore
it profiteth not the King to suffer them. It if
please the King, let it be written that they be
destroyed; and I will pay 10,000 talents of
silver into the hands of those that have
charge of the King's business, to bring it into
the King's treasuries."
Neither Haman nor Ahasuerus knew of
the relationship of Esther and Mordecai, and
so the King readily granted the request of
the extermination of the Jews. Orders were
published to executive this sinister design on
the 13th day of Adar.
Mordecai sent a message to Esther asking
her to implore Ahasuerus to spare her peo-
ple. Although it was forbidden for anyone,
even the Queen, to appear before the King
unless summoned, Esther went to him. She
asked him to attend a party she had planned
for him and Haman.
It happened that night that the King could
not sleep. He asked that the Court
Chronicles be read to him. As a result of the
reading, he was reminded that Mordecai had
once saved the King from death at the hands
of conspirators, and was surprised that
Mordecai had never been rewarded for this
As was his custom, the King consulted
Haman as to what should be done for the
man whom the King desired to honor.
Believing that the King was thinking in
terms of honoring him, Haman suggested
that the honored man be permitted to wear
the King's clothes, and ride on the King's
horse around the city. Imagine Hainan's
chagrin when he discovered that the man to
be so honored was not himself but his enemy,
Mordecai, the Jew. Even more distasteful to
him was the fact that Haman had been
designated to lead the horse and his rider
through the city.
The second night of her party Esther im-
plored the King to spare the Jewish popula-
tion and pointed out that she too must die if
the edict were carried out. Shocked by this
revelation, Ahasuerus reversed the decree
and ordered Haman to be hung on the very
gallows which Haman had prepared for
Mordecai. Mordecai now became the Prime
Minister. The King caused letters to be sent
throughout the land that the Jews should
prepare to defend themselves on the ap-
pointed day. So ably did the Jews protect
themselves on the 13th of Adar, that the
following day was "a day of feasting and

almost succeeded in destroying us.
4)Homeini our modern-day persian Haman, who together
with the Arab Moslem world, would like to follow in their
footsteps, but is deterred by the strength and resolve of the
mighty, heroic Israeli Army.
Purim is a holiday of deliverance, especially meaningful in
modern, reborn Israel, where we Jews, once more rose, like the
legendary Phoenix, from the ashes of near extinction of the
Holocaust, to determine our own future, our own destiny, in our
own free, independent homeland, Israel.
Let us tell to the world, to our few friends, and to our many
enemies alike, that we are still alive, we will endure, we will not
We are the eternal Jewish people, governed by moral codes and
laws, which are still the base of universal law and justice. The
message of Purim stresses our eternity, the ultimate victory over
all enemies of Israel, ancient, modern and future. Israel and the
Jewish people it's genius shall live until the end of times.

born and endures today.
2. Where did the greggar
"Greggar" comes from a Polish
word meaning "rattle." Beginn-
ing about the thirteenth century,
Jews throughout Europe sounded
the greggar whenever the
megillah mentioned evil Haman.
The greggar was by no means
the only way in which the con-
gregation expressed its glee at
haman's downfall. Jews of
Talmudic times burned Haman in
effigy, a custom which continued
in some countries well into the
19th century. Thirteenth-century
European Jews drew Haman's
picture or wrote his name on
stones which they banged
together. Others wrote his name
on the soles of their shoes and
stamped them on the ground. Still
others would write Haman's name
on a slip of paper and erase it!
Haman stood for every tyrant,
every dictator, who had ever tried
to destroy the Jews. Purim
customs such as these served to
declare: "We are still alive! We
endure! We will not disappear! We
are the Jewish people!"
3. Why do we wear costumes
on Purim?
Purim borrowed freely from the
pagan carnivals of ancient times,
and especially from the later
Roman carnivals. Beginning
about the 15th century, European
Jews adapted the gala costumes
and processions of these carnivals
for Purim. Dressed in colorful
masks and attire, children would
march through the town, with tiny
Mordechais, Esthers, and
Hamans, parading in joy from
street to street.
Most congregations today carry
on that custom through Purim
carnivals, costume contests, and
other similar events. Children in
the State of Israel celebrate
Purim in grand fashion. If you're
ever in Tel Aviv on Purim day,
you'll see hundreds of beautifully
costumed youngsters.
4. How did Purim spiels start?
Purim plays, or Purim spiels,
originated about the 15th century
in Germany. Certain of these
slapstick spoofs became classics in
the communities where they were
first performed, and many of the
origianl manuscripts have been
5. Are you really supposed to
get drunk on Purim?
According to the Talmud, yes.
The exact quotation is: "On
Purim, one should drink until he
can no longer tell the difference
between 'cursed by Haman' and
'blessed be Mordechai.'"
(Megillah 7b)
This runs counter to normative
Jewish teachings which generally
condemn intoxication as unseem-
ly. But Purim was exempted from
the usual rules. The custom of
allowing excessive drinking was
probably a result of Purim's
Biblical status as a Mishteh
(Literally "feast" but also mean-
ing "drink"). The rabbis
monitored the seeming per-
missiveness carefully, but, so long
as individuals did not become
abusive or destructive, Purim was
a time when almost anything was
6. Why do we eat Haman-
tashen on Purim?
Hamantashen originated in
Europe. The term derives from
two German words: mohn (poppy
seed) and taschen (pockets). The
association with Purim was
solidified by substituting the name
of Haman for mohn. There are
those who hold that the Haman-
tashen symbolize the three-
cornered hat which Haman wore.
Actually, there are many foods
which came to be associated with
Purim, but Hamantashen emerg-
ed as the most popular delicacy.
The three-cornered pastry, filled
with poppy seeds, apricots or
prunes, has become an essential
Not since the matzo bail has

7. Why do we send gifts and
give charity on Purim?
The Book of Esther (9:22) en-
joins the Jews to "make days of
feasting and gladness, and of sen-
ding gifts to one another
(misloach manot), and gifts to the
Poor." It is typical of Judaism
that, even during a holiday of
revelry, we remember others,
especially those less fortunate
than ourselves. It is customary to
send two gifts to at least one
friend and to give a single gift to
at least two poor people. Even the
poorest Jew is expected to share
with others. Thus we learn that
Tzedakah, at all times and in all
places, is a religious duty.
8. Esther's Hebrew name was
Hadasaah. Is there any connec-
tion between her and the great
women's organization of today?
Yes, after a visit to Palestine
the great Jewish leader Henrietta
Szold decided to form a Zionist
organization for women. She envi-
sioned this group working for the
health of women and children in
what was to become the modern
State of Israel.
The founding meeting was held
at Congregation Emanu-El of
New York. The date Purim,
1912. The women constituted
themselves as the Hadassah
chapter of the Daughters of Zion.
Eventually the name would
become simply: Hadassah. The
Biblical woman, who centuries
before had delivered her people,
thus gave her name to a new
generation of women who would
seek to emulate her noble
Purim teaches us that history -
can be capricious. But, while
others may seek to determine our
fate by "lots," it will ultimately be
Jewish strength, commitment,
and faith which ensure a bright
future for our people.
9. What is the meaning of
The Hebrew word "purim"
derives from the old Person word
"pur," meaning "lots." It refers
to the "lottery tickets" used by
Haman to determine a date for his
planned destruction of the Jews of
10. Where is the story of
Purim found?
The story of Purim is contained
in the Scroll of Esther, Megillat
Esther. There are for other
Biblical megillot, each read in the
synagogue on a holiday compati-
ble with its theme. Esther is read
, on Purim, Ruth on Shavuot,
Lamentations on Tisha B'av, Ec-
clesiastes on Sukkot, and Song of
Songs on Pesach. Only in the case
of Purim, however, does the
megillah relate the holiday's basic
Purim is unusual in many
respects. First, it has many
secular interesting aspects.
Esther is the only book of the Bi-
ble in which G-d is not mentioned
at all!
The elevation of Purim to a ma-
jor holiday in the eyes of the
Je'vish people was a result of the
Jewish historical experience. Over
the centuries, Haman became the
embodiment of every anti-Semite
in every land where Jews were op-
pressed. Jewish communities
throughout the world, when
delivered from tragedy, often
wrote their own megillot and
celebrated local Purims. Even the
enemies of the Jews recognized
their identification with Haman.
In an eerie prophecy, in 1944,
Adolf Hitler declared that, if the
Nazis lost the war, the Jews would
celebrate a second Purim.
The significance of Purim, lies
not in how it began, but in what it
has become a thankful and
joyous affirmation of Jewish sur-
vival against all odds.

Rabbi Daniel B. Syme.)

New Charges Against Kurt Waldheim

By Yitzhak Rabi
World Jewish Congress recently
charged that Kurt Waldheim,
when he was Secretary General of
the United Nations in 1980, block-
ed access to UN documents and
files on Nazi war criminals by an
agency of the U.S. Justice Depart-
ment investigating Nazi war
Israel Singer, secretary general
of the WJC, told a press con-
ference at the Halloran Hotel that
the UN has an archive on some
42,000 Nazi war criminals and
that access to those files requires
special permission from the
Secretary General.
According to Singer, Waldheim
prevented the release of the
documents to representatives of
the Justice Department's Office of
Special Investigations (OSI) after
the chief of the, UN archives sec-
tion had agreed, at a meeting with
two OSI officials, to release them.
Singer provided a copy of a let-
ter dated April 28, 1980 from the
then-U.S. Attorney General Ben-
jamin Civiletti to Waldheim,
thanking him for permission
granted by At Erlandsson, chief of
the UN archives section, and John
Scott, of the UN Secretariat, to
two OSI representatives, George
Garand, chief historian of the OSI,
and Arthur Sinai, deputy director
of the OSI, to examine UN
documents relating to Nazi war
But, in actuality, Singer charg-
ed at the press conference, the ex-
amination did not take place and
was prevented, in effect, by
Waldheim. Singer said he spoke
recently with Neal Sher, current
head of the OSI, who said the OSI
was not given access to the UN
Civiletti's letter to Waldheim
stressed that the UN records on
the subject of Nazi war criminals
"may prove to be of significant
assistance to the Department of
Justice" which was investigating
suspected war criminals living in
the U.S., and said he was
"therefore pleased to learn from
Allan Ryan, Jr., director of the Of-
fice of Special Investigations, that
Mr. Scott and Mr. Erlandsson
have agreed to provide access to
this material to representatives of
the OSI" at their meeting on April
3, 1980.
Waldheim, who served two
terms as UN Secretary General
(1972-1981) and is now a can-
didate for the Presidency of
Austria, was accused by the WJC
recently of having been on the
staff of a Werhmacht general who
participated in the mass deporta-
tion of Greek Jews from Salonika
to death camps in Poland in 1943.
The WJC also cited documents
from the Austrian War Archives
showing that Waldheim joined the
National Socialist Student
Organization and the Nazi SA
(Storm Troopers) in 1938, shortly
after the Anschluss.
Singer confirmed at the press
conference that Waldheim called
WJC president Edgar Bronfman
to assure him that he had never
been involved "in any sort of
Jewish deportations or cruelties"
but he conceded that he was in
Salonika and in Yugoslavia during
the period when Nazi atrocities
against Jews occurred there, as
charged by the WJC.

Jewish War
The Jewish War Veterans of
the USA celebrated its 90th an-
niversary earlier this month as the
nation's oldest, active veterans'
organization. In 1896, a group of
Jewish Civil War veterans first
met and pledged to fight the
malicious, anti-Semitic slanders
that painted Jews as unpatriotic
parasites who didn't serve their
country. Those Jewish veteran
present at that first meeting had,
between them, not less than 218
medals awarded for their part in
the Civil War and they
represented less than one third of
one percent of the Jews known to
have served. Jews have been in-
volved in America's military
history from this country's pre-
Revolutionary War beginning and
have served this country, faithful-
ly and valiantly, in every military

"The extradition of John Dem-

single fund-raiser, OUR RACE

annual Special Event drew record
crowds and profits at Gulfstream
Park, Hallandale, in South Florida
for a day of luncheon and racing
under sunny skies. The newly
renovated and expanded facilities
provided colorful and comfortable
surroundings as guests enjoyed
the spectacle of thoroughbred rac-
ing against a background of
tropical gardens and an enlarged
lake. The day was planned for
months by a group of 80
Hostesses working under the
chairmanship of Carrie Saktkoo,
all of Hollywood. More than 900
tickets were sold, in addition to
numerous ad-donations for the
Program Book, which also con-
tained Memorials of lost friends
and relatives. Proceeds expected
to reach the $60,000 mark will aid

Calling the term creationism
legislative legerdemain, the
American Jewish Congress today
called on Gov. Bob Graham to res-
cind his order that a Textbook
Selection Committee find a
biological book which balances the
scientific theory of evolution with
"Whether it is called simply
creationism, Biblical Creationism,
scientific creationism or creation
science, the doctrine it refers to
the belief in the literal interpreta-
tion of the Biblical story of Crea-
tion is a religious one, a matter
of religous dogma which, if ac-
cepted, is accepted as a matter of
faith," stated Linda J. Ehrlich,
chair of Commission on Law and
Social Action.
"We believe that this is a viola-
tion of the Constitution's mandate
of church-state separation," Ms.
Ehrlich added.
Recently, there have been calls
to "balance* the teaching of Dar-
winian evolutionary theory with
"scientific creationism." It is
clear that school officials may not
prohibit the teaching of evolu-
tionary theory Epperson v.
Arkansas, 309 U.S. 941 (1967).
Those who, for religious reasons,
object to Darwin'8 theory of evolu-
tion have responded with calls for
equal treatment of "scientific
creationsm" and evolutionary
theory in science classes.
The courts have so far been
unanimous in rejecting such
claims, including most recently an
Louisiana "equal time" statute.
They have done so after determin-
ing that the doctrine of creation-
sim is a religious doctrine without
scientific basis.
The Constitution does not forbid
teaching about religion.
Therefore, there would be no con-
stitutional objection to teaching a
philosophy course on the origins
of either the solar system or
humankind, or both, provided that
the religious theories of origin are
indentified as such, not passed off
as science, and not endorsed by
the school.
"The Constitution stands as no
bar to the simple statement by
teachers (including science
teachers) that there are religious
groups which disagree with the
theory of evolution. Such
statements might do much to
defuse the controversy over the
teaching of evolution in the
schools," Ms. Ehrlich concluded.
As we get older, regular
checkups become increasingly im-
portant. For men over 50, the
American Cancer Society recom-
mends a prostate exam as part of
regular checkups, because
chances of prostate cancer in-
crease with age.
