But Not to Israel
France Ready to Replace Iraq's Nuclear/Reactor and Sell Arms
PARIS (JTA) France is ready
to replace the Iraqi nuclear reactor de-
stroyed by Israel last month, Foreign
Minister Claude Cheysson told the
Beirut daily Al Nahor. Cheysson said
that if Iraq makes the request, France
will replace the reactor "on the terms we
apply to other countries."
Earlier, he said that France will
"multiply checks and controls to ensure
that civilian reactors are not used for
military purposes."
CHEYSSON ALSO said France will
sell arms to Middle East countries but
not to Israel. He added that arms will
not be sold to countries with totalitarian
regimes or which are at war. "As far as
the Middle East is concerned, only the
second restriction is applicable," he said.
As a consequence (of the restriction) we
shall not deliver arms to Israel."
Cheysson named Saudi Arabia,
Iraq, the Persian Gulf States, Egypt and
North Africa as countries to which
France is prepared to sell weapons. Last
week, he told the weekly Le Nouvel Ob-
seruateur that arms exports are "vital
for our industry" and that 300,000
people are directly employed by it. He
said that the export of weapons is essen-
tial to French industry and to the coun-
try's defense.
France's recognition of the Palestine
Liberation Organization as "one of the
representatives of the Palestinian
people," saying that the Palestinians do
not have, under current conditions, the
possibility to democratically chose their
representatives. He said the PLO might
emerge as the sole Palestinian repre-
sentative "when conditions become
adapted to their free, democratic
French officials refused to comment
on Cheysson's declaration. Only State
Minister for Foreign Trade, Michel
Jobert, confirmed Paris' readiness to re-
place the Iraqi reactor "on certain condi-
tions and if Iraq makes the demand."
When asked whether the training of
a nuclear generation in Baghdad might
not by itself endanger ultimate peace,
Jobert said "there is no stopping pro-
gress. All over the world, an increasing
number of countries and scientists are
about to enter the nuclear age." Jobert
did not comment on Cheysson's declara-
tion barring Israel from the French arms
The Case of Vikor Brailovsky
Viktor Brailovsky was sen-
Itenced to five years' internal
exile, after a two-day trial on
June 18 in Lublinsky People's
Court in a southeastern section of
Moscow. He was convicted on
charges of alleged "fabrications
which defame the Soviet state
and social system," under Article
190-1 of the Criminal Code of the
USSR. Maintaining his in-
nocence. Brailovsky refused the
sen.'ices of a lawyer and defended
I himself. After the sentencing, he
I declared his intent to appeal and
I was returned to prison, pending
Ithe outcome. The place of banish-
Iment, likely to be Siberia, will be
I decided by the Interior Minister
[after the appeal, which could take
|two months.
Brailovsky's wife, Irina, and
their 20-year-old son, Leonid,
ivere permitted into the court-
oom which was filled by the au-
thorities with hand-picked
people. Diplomats from the
United States, Canada and Great
Britain, Western correspondents
and about 40 friends and sup-
porters were effectively barred
from the hearing, and stood
outside the courthouse.
Irina, who had not seen her
husband since his arrest on No-
vember 13, 1980, said he looked
haggard and ten years older, and
"was really another person." The
45-year-old computer scientist,
who was held incommunicado in
Moscow's Butyrskaya Prison
since his arrest, will have to
spend about three years in exile.
Under the law, every day of pre-
trial detention in prison is equal
to three days in exile.
Mrs. Brailovsky reported that
the charges read against her hus-
band centered on his role as co-
editor of the unofficial journal,
Jews in the USSR, and on two
letters he wrote in 1976 to the
United States Congress, and
President Jimmy Carter, seeking
support for Soviet Jews trying to
emigrate. The only items of
evidence introduced were the
letters and several issues of the
journal, which ceased publication
18 months before Viktor's arrest.
According to Mrs. Brailovsky,
the judge read from a charge
sheet that stated the journal had
"left an impression of a general
decay of culture in the Soviet
Union, of a deterioration of
ideology, of a great-power
chauvinism in the Soviet Union
and of discrimination against
Jews in the country."
Mrs. Brailovsky said that the
charges were also presented in
generalized summaries, which
alleged that the letters "gave an
impression that Soviet author-
ities were going to suppress the
emigration movement" and that
it was impossible to counteract
official violation of the law. She
mentioned that despite the seven
months during which the state
was purportedly gathering
evidence, it was surprisingly
scant, as was the testimony.
Even the judge, in sentencing
Viktor, commented on this fact.
Of the four witnesses called by
the prosecutor, one refused to
testify, another said he could not
remember evidence shown him,
and a third said he had never read
the journal. The fourth witness
testified that he had once at-
tended a scientific seminar at the
Brailovsky apartment, and that
it had dealt soley with mathe-
matics and physics. The prosecu-
tor, however, alleged that topics
which defamed the state had been
Since 1972, when Brailovsky
was refused permission to
emigrate to Israel, he partici-
pated in weekly Sunday scientific
seminars for unemployed refuse-
nik scientists, later hosting them
with Irina in their apartment.

Legislation Urged To
Make Religious Vandalism
A Federal Crime
Alphonse D'Amato (R, N.Y.)
called on Congress to speedily
enact legislation that would make
it a federal crime to vandalize
religious property or to inti-
midate a group or individuals
exercising their right to practice
D'Amato, joined by Rep.
Mario Biaggi (D., N.Y.) and
members of the Jewish com-
munity, declared at a press
conference in front of the U.S.
Courthouse at Foley Square that
"what we are dealing with here is
a basic human right some-
thing that is guaranteed by the
Constitution the right to
worship uninhibited."
Protection Act, co-sponsored by
D'Amato in the Senate, would in-
clude fines of up to $10,000 or im-
prisonment of up to five years or
both to persons convicted of de-
facing or destroying religious
articles. In a case of bodily injury
inflicted on another party,
convicted persons could be fined
up to $15,000 or serve up to 15
years in prison.
According to D'Amato, the
legislation is in response to recent
reports of an alarming upsurge in
anti-Semitic threats and violence
in this country. He pointed out
however, that this is not just
important to the Jewish com-
munity but to "all other religious
communities who have too long
tolerated criminal acts of those
who deface and destroy religious
He said federal participation to
deter such criminal activity was
essential to secure the right of
religious freedom in this country.

director of the Jewish Com-

noted that acts of religious

Reagan Will Push Jewish Issue
President Reagan gave his per-
sonal assurances that the fate of
Soviet Jews will continue to be on
the United States' agenda in any
negotiations with the Soviet
Union. In a telephone call to
Theodore Mann, chairman of the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ), the President said
he has already communicated
this fact to Soviet President
Leonid Brezhnev in a personal
The President's telephone call
was in response to a letter of June*
16 from Mann, in which the
American Jewish leader con-

recent trip to the Soviet Union by
15 Jewish emigration activists
from several cities in the USSR
THE MESSAGE expressed
gratitude to the President for his
recent meeting with Avital
Sharansky, wife of Prisoner of
Conscience Anatoly Sharansky,
and a recently released former
prisoner Josif Mendelevich.
In his discussion with Mann,
the President said he waa "work-
ing on the issue" of Soviet Jewry,

wiser not to deal in headlines, but
in a more direct manner.

specialists have joined force* to
establish an International Evalu-
ation Team for measuring the im-
pact of Project Renewal, the
worldwide Jewish program for

Currently in operation in 70
seperate locations, Project Re-

Chairman Professor Arnold
Gurin of Brandeis University will
"develop an objective research
program that will help to identify
weaknesses and evaluate suc-
cesses in the Project Renewal
Other American members of
the team, which held its first
meeting in Jerusalem in late
March, include Dr. Rashi Fein of
Harvard, Dr. Bernard Frieden of
MIT, Professor Richard Nathan

children in distressed neighborhoods throughout the Jewish state.
Raising Money Is the Means,

Team was initiated by the Re-
newal Department of the Jewish
Agency, utilizing the resources of
American Jewish communities
linked to Israeli Project Renewal
neighborhoods. The Social Policy
Team of the Deputy Prime
Minister's office was also enlisted
in developing the academic re-
search group.
Professor Reichman observed
that Project Renewal has
brought some revolutionary ideas
to Israel: "Not because it is go-
ing to 'clean up the cities,' but
because it encourages partici-
pation at the grass roots level."
"The lessons of America since
the War on Poverty began in
1965 can be helpful." added Dr.
Thurz. "Hopefully Israel can
avoid the same mistakes that
were made in the U.S."
"Yet, every society is diff-
erent," cautioned Professor
Nathan. "While there are lessons
to be learned from the American
experience, they must not be
viewed in a way that fails to ac-
count for these differences."
In order to increase its per-
spective, the team decided at its
March meeting to seek to recuit a

speaking European and perhaps
a non-Jew. The next team meet-
ing will take place in Jerusalem

"The government, the Jewish

what is done with their money
and what kind of success or fail-
ure is experienced.
"Our plan is not simply to pro-
duce a retrospective about an ex-
perience that Israel entered in
1978, but to provide some useful
mechanism for researchers and
management to keep Project Re-

Schwartz Appointed Executive VP of Council of Jewish Federations
NEW YORK CJF President
Morton L. Mandel has an-
nounced that Canni Schwartz

Executive Vice President of the
Council of Jewish Federations aa
of September 1, 1961, as ap-
proved by a unanimous vote of
the CJF Board Directors.

cupied the post of CJF Associate
Executive Vice President
since 1979, will succeed Robert I.
Hiller. Mr. Hiller has served in
CJF's top management position
for the past two years in accord-
ance with the management plan
agreed to by the Board. He will
continue with Council as a con-
sultant to his successor following
his retirement in September.
Prior to joining CJF, Canni
Schwartz spent four and one-half
years as Executive Vice

Zeal, But Not Fanaticism
(XXV, 10-13.)
Our Sidra, P. Pinchos, commences with the heavenly re-
ward of peace meted out to Phineas for his courageous zeal in
cleansing in a most decisive drastic manner, the Israelitiah
camp. The hankering lust displayed after the immoral Midianite
women, to whom obscenity was associated with worship,
displayed a jaundiced and distorted mind not at peace with
oneself, because of the wrong set of values it attached to
emotions and objects.
Peace, as the Hebrew word Shalom connotes, meant being
whole, complete, seeing life steadily and seeing it whole, putting
first things first and last things last. By his zeal in the cause of
G-d, Phineas restored peace of mind, stability and goldiness in
the camp. This state of calm can only be achieved after much
inner struggle and self-adjustment. Like the glider, man climbs
higher after the bumps received.
The glory of achievement and the conquest of peace must be
sought after and pursued. But zeal must not be mistaken for
fanaticism, on which Judaism frowns, because its course leads to
intolerance and arrogance. A Rabbi in the Talmud asks: Why
is the Torah likened to fire?" And he replies: "To teach us that
man must not go to extremes. For just as one is burnt when he
touches it, so is he frozen when he places a great distance be-
tween him and it. Let him therefore, be equidistant in all
By rewarding Phineas for his prompt action in averting the
spread of moral rottenness among the people, G-d rewarded him
with the covenant of peace. The nature of this reward is
significant, showing as it does that zeal, even when directed in a
heavenly cause, must alway be exercised in the direction of
peace. If zeal in any cause leads to a disruption of unity in the
community, when its 'reward is lost in its damage', as the Perek
graphically puts it. Especially in priesthood and leadership is
peace most essential. Like Aaron, the High Priest, the leader
must be a lover of peace and a pursuer of peace. (Perth 1,12.)
Many are the teachings of Peace in Jewish life and litera-
ture. The last words of the Talmud are that no vessel can contain
anything unless there be peace therein. No Jewish home,
however much the wealth and the architectural designs whfch
have gone into it to make it palatial and luxurious, can exist for
long unless it is crowned with Shalom Bayit, with family peace-
Interesting in this connection, is the MMraahic comment on
the familiar verse of the Psalms XXIX, 11, the Lord gwes
strength unto His people: Yea, the Lord will bless HUptapk
with peace. Whereas other nations have applied their strength
for belligerent purposes, in massing nuclear weapons and in the
invention of atomic and hydrogen bombs, the Jewish nation
must ever use their spiritual supremacy in the interests of mtsr-
national peace and goodwill among all men.
The Prophetic reading this week, recalls the Tahnudkbettsf
that Phineas is Elijah. Both were fired with the same spirit. Our
Sidra records in a most graphic manner how Phineas. byhto
promptness and courage, stayed the moral plague which threat-
ened Israel's character as a holy nation, and our Haphtaran
describes the sequel of the momentous scene on Carmel, where
the prophet of storm and fire proved for all ttaass that Lord,
HeisQ-d, Both were moved to righteous hw'gnattrm whentney

have a greatly expanded and en-
riched agenda as compared to
that of 60 years ago, when the
Council of Jewish Federations'
the Federations' national or-
ganization was formed. "At
that time the mail goal for
Federations was the provision of
services for Jews in need, and
that remains and always will re-
main our central purpose," Mr.
Schwartz said. "As long as Jews
require the community's assist-
ance and support, we will respond
whether those in need sre here
in our local communities or in Is-
rael or in any distressed commu-
nity in any part of the world.
"But," he continued, "we now
recognize that building local
Jewish communities ready and
able to respond to Jewish needs is
in itself s very complex, very
critical endeavor. Today
Federations are directing in-
creasing attention to this process
of community-building. Helping
Jews in North America develop a
sense of Jewish identity and res-
ponsibility as individuals, as
members of local communities, aa
members of the Jewish people, as
citizens and in deepening their
relationship to the State of Israel
is now a high priority in the
Carmi Schwartz
Federation program.''
Federation, Mr. Schwartz
stressed, is not a static institu-
tion; it is a conscious community-
building process. "Federations
help members of the community
interact effectively and meaning-
fully with each other, and with
the Jewish people wherever they
may be. Enhancing human rela-
tionships, human compassion,
human commitment, is at the
heart of the Jewish tradition.
Jewish Day School Ready
The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School is fully staffed and
ready for the beginning of its
second year of operation. New
additions to the staff are Miss
Ethel Tark, who will be the
Jewish Studies teacher for grades
K, 2, and 3, and Mrs. Barbie
Mehler, who will be the school's
art and music specialist. Michael
Remkus will continue as the Day
School's physical education
specialist. The General Studies
staff will again include Peggy
Lucier, teaching first grade,
Audrey Struchen, teaching
grades 2 and 3, and Karl Tram-
mel, who as Director of General
Studies will teach kindergarten,
and serve ss a specialist in math-
ematics and silent reading. Mr.
Edwin R Frankel continues as
Principal and Director of Jewish
The Day School's spokesper-
son recently announced that Mr.
Frankel, the school's principal,
has been accepted as a member of
the auspicious Council for Jewish
Education, an organization of
administrators of Jewish educa-
tional agencies in the United
States, Israel and Canada.
The Day School will reopen on
August 31. Several student posi-
tions are still available. For de-
tails call Dr. Michael Phillips at
The Pinellas County Day School

Combined Jewish Appeal Cam-
I Federation is there to nourish
this system of caring and
, relating," he emphasized.
The Council of Jewish Federa-
tions aids local Federations in
i this process of community-
I building by bringing together
local leaders in a national organi-
zation to share experiences, by
providing tools, resources and
consultative services for the use
of local communities, and, where
< appropriate, by representing
local communities in their
concerns regarding national, in-
ternational and Israeli issues.
Mr. Schwartz believes "the local
Federations and the local com-
munity is where Jewish life is
acted out. Facilitating the enact-
ment of Jewish life in our local
communities is the goal of CJF."
The Council of Jewish Federa-
tions is the association of 200
Federations, Welfare Funds and
Community Councils which serve
nearly 600 communities and em-
brace over 96 percent of the
Jewish population of the United
States and Canada. Established
in 1932, the Council serves as a
national instrument to
strengthen the work and the im-
pact of Jewish Federations
through leadership in developing
programs to meet changing needs
in the Jewish community;
through the exchange of success-
ful experiences to assure the most
effective community services;
through establishing guidelines
for fund raising and operation;
and through joint national plan-
ning and action on common pur-
poses dealing with local, regional,
national and international needs.
KKK Operates in West Germany
With Neo-Nazi Organizations
BONN (JTA) The Ku Klux Klan is operating in
West Germany and maintains liaison with neo-Nazi or-
ganizations, the weekly news magazine Stern reported.
According to Stern, the racist group has about 1,000
members and restricts its activities to U.S. military bases
where attacks on Black soldiers have increased. Stern said
its information was confirmed by the Federal Criminal In-
vestigation Bureau and the Rhineland -Palatinate Interior
KKK ACTIVITIES are centered in the Rhineland-
Palatinate and Hesse, the magazine reported but the In-
terior Ministry said Germany's hands were tied because it
operates at U.S. military installations. The German Klan
maintains ties with the outlawed Wehrsportsgruppe
Hoffmann, a neo-Nazi paramilitary organization that
masqueraded as a sports club and with other rightwing
extremists sought by police in connection with the bomb-
ing at the Munich (Oktoberfest) last year.

Conservative Logistics
The Moynihan-Packwood-Roth legislative pro-
posal calling for a tax assist of $250 the first year and
$500 thereafter to parents of private school children
poses an interesting problem for the conservative
policies of the new Reagan Administration.
On the one hand, there is no doubt that the
President represents a clear sense of identification
with matters of family life and religious affiliation. In
this set of circumstances, the right-to-life forces
trumpeting their anti-abortion cause and the
religious organizations pressing for greater ex-
pression of religious practice in the public schools are
being given a deckled boost to their causV
The Moynihan-Packwood-Roth proposal is a
clear example of that cause, and one would think that
it has clear sailing ahead.
On the other hand, the President's fiscal policies
aimed at cutting back government spending and, as
Mr. Reagan puts it, "getting the government off the
backs of the people," militate against this proposal.
And so the question narrows to this: should the fed-
eral government budget as an expense the loss of re-

new conservatism wins.
It's All the Same
The signals from France are mixed. There was
great jubilation in the Jewish community there when
Francois Mitterrand unseated Valery Giscard d'Es-
taing. Now, French Jews are considerably cooled,
and they are prone to second thoughts.
Mitterrand's reaction to Israel's attack on the
Iraqi reactor took them back to the icy days of the
elegant, aristocratic Giscard, whose affection for
Araby put the finishing touches on the old Charles de
Gaulle decision to put Israel low down on the French
totem pole. That was, perhaps, to be expected.
But those fancy Mitterrand statements about
Israel he made before the elections are now no more
than a footnote to history. Now that he is comfor-
tably ensconced in the Eh/sees Palace, Francois Mit-
terrand pursues French-Arab ties with a vengeance.
It was the French themselves who said it: The
more things change, the more they remain the same.
The dizzy flight from Giscard to Mitterrand was
change enough. But nothing really has.
Do Hosts Bait Hate-Callers into Slurs?
15 TAMUZ 5741
Number 15
pioneering study of racial
and religious bias on radio
call-in programs has found
that both hosts and callers
on these programs
frequently make negative
remarks about various
racial and religious groups.
The overall finding of the
research, conducted here is
that disparaging comments
about different ethnic
groups outnumber compli-
mentary statements by
more than 8 to 1 on the
specific programs that were
analyzed. The study found
also that hosts on these
shows' sometimes seem
deliberately to "bait" their
listeners into making racial
THE RESEARCH, which was
sponsored by the Philadelphia
Chapter of the American Jewish
Committee, and conducted by
Dennis T. Lowry, associate
professor of communications at
Temple University, consisted of
an analysis of three Philadelphia
talk shows. Prof. Lowry s report
on his findings has just been
issued by the A JC.
In the preface to the report, Dr.
Murray Friedman, director of the
middle Atlantic Region of the
AJC, notes that there has been
little examination of the call-in
shows "as a factor in intergroup
relations." even though these
shows have wide audiences, deal
often with racial and religious
matters, and have the potential
to influence listerners' views on
these matters.
These broadcasts, declares Dr.
Friedman, could "promote
(lightened awareness of social
and political issues and motivate
personal involvement in the
democratic process," but they
"often seem to attract the most
bigoted callers." Therefore, he
goes on. since "many people feel
most comfortable when they
share majority views, students of
the media must ask whether this
skewed sampling of opinion
about minorities on radio call-in
shows does not mUlwH some
listeners into believing that prej-
udice is the norm in American
TO COLLECT the data for the
study. Prof. Lowry says in his re-
port, he monitored two morning
shows for 10 mornings each and
one all-day show for Five days,
and noted every statement made
by a host, guest, or caller
about 12 "target groups":
Whites, Blacks, Puerto Ricans,
Mexican-Americans, Cubans,
Haitians, Protestants, Catholics.
Jews, Christians, (unspecified as
o whether Protestant or
Catholic), minorities (unspecified
as to race, ethnic group), and
'elfare recipients (unspecified as
d ethnic group.
He then categorized every
, statement aa "positive" or
negative," and. aa a check on
Himself, assigned another com-
munications specialist to cate-
gorize the same statements in-
He and the other researcher, he
states, agreed substantially aa to
which statements were
"negative" or "positive."
Their basic finding rontinims
Prof. Lowry, was that the shows
they had monitored contained a
total of 741 "negative assertions"
about the 12 "target groups," aa
against 86 positive statement*
about the same groups.
THUS," the report says, "the
three stations were serving
primarily as a forum for hosts,
callers, and in-studio guests to
make negative assertions about
the 12 target groups. To put it
another way, there were 8.6 nega-
tive assertions for every positive
However, the paper goes on,
the 8.6-to-l ratio was an overall
figure, and the individual ratios
of the three stations differed sig-
nificantly from each other. On
one program. Prof. Lowry notes,
the negative assertions out-
weighed the positives 34-to-l,
while the statistics for the other
two shows were, respectively, 4.9-
to-1 and 2.2-to-l.
Prof. Lowry"s analysis also dis-
closed great variations in the fre-
quencies with which the three
programs aired negative re-
marks: on one show such com-
ments were made more than ten
times an hour, as compared to a
respective five times an hour and
0.7 times an hour on the other
ANOTHER variation noted by
Prof. Lowry was that the pro-
grams aimed in different
directions, with Whites heir* b.
prime targets on two shows and
wing of Protestantiam, 1
evangelicals. fundamentalists
etc.") holding that position on
the third. Blacks, Prof. Lowry
points out, were the No. 2 object
on all the shows, but the degrees
to which they were targeted
varied among the three stations.
Prof. Lowry's figures show
also that welfare recipients were
high on two lists and un-
mentioned on the third, and that
Cubans and Jews possessed
diverse degrees of unpopularity
on the three shows.
Turning to the question of
" who was making the negative
assertions," Prof. Lowry says
that "the hosts led the way" in
making derogatory statements
about Protestants, while the
callers made the greater number
of "negative assertions aimed at
Catholics. Christians, and Jews."

community and played a promi-
nent role in the Jewish emigra-
tion and cultural movement. His
sentence of banishment from
Moscow has dealt a severe blow
to the activists, some of whom
fear that his trial could well
signal the Soviet's intention to-
wards the entire refusenik
activist community.
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry strongly protests the sen-
tence and urges you to implement
the following suggestions. We
believe we can have an impact on
the Brailovsky appeal as
evidenced by the recent sentence
of exile rather than labor camp.
We must let Soviet authorities
know of our unwavering support
for Soviet Jews. Soviet author-
ities must hear from all of us im-
mediately to know that our con-
cern is not only promissory. We,
therefore, urge the following ac-
tivities, calibrated over the next
few weeks.
1. Have your constituents and
colleagues cable or write their
protest, urging that the sentence
be overturned on appeal, and that
Viktor and his family immedi-
ately be permitted to join their
relatives in Israel. Send these to:

b) Communicate their concern
for Brailovsky to Ambassador

Dear Miss Y:
It a very normal response to feel
depression when ending a relations
sense of loss and
tionahrp with someone you car*
about. If you find yourself constantly focusing on or dwelling on
perceived negative qualities and generally put yourself down
when something goes wrong in a relationship, you amy wish to
seek counseling.

The Jewish Florldian ofPinellas County
The Old Neighborhood is a
flashback of the life of Steven
Rabbins, a Bronx boy who be-
comes an achiever in all walks of
life. He is the son of incompatible
parents; the father is "too nice to
succeed" and is the manager of a
haberdashery. Hia mother is an
agressive nagging woman, whose
main concern with her son is that
he not follow in the footsteps of
his father, and she reiterates
constantly "What ia to become of
you?" Steven begins to feel that
hs is the only 17 year old boy in
high school that doean't know
what to do with himself. In
pursuing his career goals with
Mr. Beale, hia vocational
counselor, he realized that he
cannot become a doctor, lawyer,
or engineer because, while hia
friends are applying to Brandeis
and Fordham, hia only possible
school of higher learning is the
City College of New York. There-
fore, the only feasible career for
him is that of a businessman. He
considers himself a complex per-
son, one part business minded,
I one part intellectual, so he deter-
mines to become a successful well
rounded corporate executive.
After graduation, in order to
I find employment, he finds it ex-
pedient to do hia stint in the
Army. In try after try, he finds
himself disqualified by his poor
address. After great effort, he
lands a job in advertising, with
an odd ball Californian and con-
[sequently must move to the West
Icoast. When hia mother hears
[this news, she nearly goes into a
coma, but there is no alternative-
and Steven leaves feeling like a
Book Notes
successor to William Holden.
Once settled and gainfully
employed, he looks around for a
social life, and attends a square
dance at UCLA where he meets
blonde Beverly HOlman, from
Sacramento. The Hillmans are in
real estate and are Western style
Jews. Beverly and Steven fall in
love and insist on an early wed-
ding which the Hillmans protest,
but accede to. They are married
in the fall, and Stevens parents
fly out for the wedding, which is
the social event of the season.
Throughout their stay, the
Robbing are dazed by the Califor-
nians. They do not fit into the
lavish surroundings of the Hill-
mans, and with the scorching
weather, they are out of step
completely, even as to their
clothing, which is New York style
and wool. Time and life marches
until beset by death, and
Steven is shocked when his
mother dies at 51, a desperate
unhappy woman. After this
sobering passing, the Rabbi, at
Stevens request reads from
Ecclesiastes, which makes sense
to him more in a literary than
religious way. Steven and
Beverlys marriage is a real
success story. Beverly, an over
educated housewife, conceives
and operates the Nassau Art
Institute and Camp for Tots, an
unusual preschool. Stevens
career soars with success, and to-
gether they rear two daughters,
Sarah and Amy, both ac-
complished girls.
With all this success, life
should have been perfect, but
conversely, everything sours.
The marriage goes on the rocks
and they are unable to retrieve
their original Utopia. Family
relationships are strained, and
visits to a marriage counselor do
not help. The relationship is
doomed, and Steven and Beverly
decide to part.
Dogged by loneliness and un-
happineas, Steven tries to cope
with his problems, and it be-
comes an ego trip for him. He
takes out his old box of
possessions and is haunted by
the memorabilia. He decides to
return to the old neighborhood,
where he had once been happy,
and try to find himself again.
This novel is penetrating, and
at time rollicking with humorous
passages. It is a very human
work. The author, Avery Cor-
man, was born and educated in
New York City. He and his wife
Judy have two children, Matthew
and Nicholas. His previous
successes are "Oh God" and
"Kramer Versus Kramer." The
author has piercing insight, and
this book is highly recommended.
It is a real nostalgia trip.

JDC's Role in Italian Earthquake
In bringing you up to date on
the American Jewish communi-
ty's response to the November,
1980 earthquake in Italy, I am
pleased to advise you that a
formal dedication of the JDC-
supported social service center
for pre-school children took place
on May 1 in the mountain town of
Potenza, which is located in the
earthquake area, has special
meaning for Jews. Jews were
interned here during World War
II, and were hidden from the
Nazis by local residents.
Attending the dedication
ceremony were Mr. Emilio
Columbo, the Italian Foreign
Minister, who is himself a native
of Poi*-;:za; leaders nf the Italian i
Red Cross; the Mayor of I
Potensa, Mr. Di Pasca and the'
JDC Representative in Rome,
Mrs. Eleonora Eibenschutz.
Mayor Di Pasca expressed his
deep appreciation for the
generous contribution of
100,000,000 lire ($108,000) made
by the American Jewish commu-
nity through the JDC. The local
President of the Italian Red
Cross also thanked American
Jewry for its support, saying that
it was "in recognition of the
friendly hospitality' extended to
the Jews in the area during the,
very difficult period of the perse-
The children served by the
center come from a nearby "Con-
tainer Village" which houses 400

instrumental in forming another group here.

both held hearings. The senate
Committee has not decided yet
whether to hold further hearings
or whether to issue a report. But,
as Senate Majority Leader
Howard Baker iR Tana)
pointed out st the outset, no one
expects the Congress to vote to
cut off military aid to IsraeL
MEANWHILE, none of the
dire consequences of the Israeli
raid predicted by Administration
spokesmen and other critics of
Israel have occurred. The Ad-
ministration's main worry was
that the Israeli action would
wreck the efforts of special envoy
Philip Habib to ease tension over
the situation in Lebanon that has
resulted from Syria's placement
of SAM-6 anti-aircraft mimnl^
there and Israel's threat to re-
move the missiles Yet tension
has eased.
Carter Aide
Results Won't Matter
To Talks Outcome
(JTA) Harold Saunders.
Assistant Secretary of
State for Near Eastern and
South Asian Affairs in the
Carter Administration,
predicted that no matter
who won the elections in
Israel it would not "pro-
duce an easy job" for
American officials who
want to "press forward"
with the Middle East peace
Answering questions at a
luncheon of the Women's
National Democratic Club, Saun-
ders explained that Israel is not
"united" over what to do about
the West Bank and Gaza Strip
and any solution will result in a
"national trauma of some sort."
HE NOTED that the present
government of Prime Minister
Menachem Begin may provide
more difficulties in the "long
run" than the opposition Labor
Party because of its claims to
sovereignty over the West Bank.
But at the same time, a strong
rightwing government mumt
have a greater capacity to deliver
concessions. "Five years ago no
one would have predicted that
Prime Minister Begin would have
presided over the compromises
and agreements that were
achieved in 1978 and 1979." he
Saunders. who was involved in
the Camp David agreements and
in all Egyptian-Israeli negotia-
tions from the interim agree-
ments in 1974. said the Camp
David accords "cannot be
scrapped," although the U.S.
may have to go beyond them to
involve other parties, particularly
to Palestinians.
He stressed that "neither a
Palestinian settlement nor an
Arab-Israeli peace will ensure
stability in the Middle East."
But be said there could be no
Middle East solution or perman-
ent peace for Israel without
solving the Palestinian problem. I
SAUNDERS, who is now a :
resident fellow at the American
Enterprise Institute, said that
whether a Palestinian solution
requires direct involvement of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization is something the
negotiators will have to deter-
mine among themselves.

Committees about the concern of
the U.S. for the "embarrass-

Egyptian President Sadat, since '
it occurred only three days after
Sadat met with Begin. Yet in
Cairo. Michael Sterner, Deputy
Assistant Secretary of State for
Near East and South Asian
Affairs, announced that Israel,
Egypt and the U.S. had reached

majority in both the House and
Senate opposed to the sale.
They urged the President to

Administration spokesmen
maintained that the Administra-

proposal and that once the final
package was unveiled it would
meet the concerns of the Senators
and Congressmen.
It is widely believed that the
Administration plans to send the
proposal to Congress in Jury. But
late last week Sen. Charles Percy
(R., 111.) urged the Administra-
tion, in view of the strong opposi-
tion in Congress, to postpone the
submission date to allow time "to

No Reports to Confirm
Rumor Syria Moved Missiles
TEL AVIV (JTA) Army sources said they had
no information to confirm reports by Christian Phalangist
radio stations in Beirut that the Syrians had moved their
SAM-6 missiles away from the Zahle area of Lebanon.
THE REPORTS followed an announcement that
Lebanese army units had replaced Phalangist forces in the
Syrian-surrounded town, which might have led to a
lessening of tension. It was the presence of the missiles
there, following the downing by Israeli planes of two
Syrian helicopters, which had sparked the missile crisis.
Prime Minister Menachem Begin has threatened to
remove the missiles by force if they are not removed
through the quiet diplomacy undertaken by U.S. special
envoy Philip Habib.
Falwell Raises Ever More Questions
Crisscrossed by contradictions.
Rev. Jerry Falwell s religio-
political thundering herd
Moral Majority. Inc. appears
now to be raising more questions
than it can answer.
Frequently citing love for
Israel and Jews everywhere.
Moral Majority seems to have
flashed the wrong signals to Rev.
Dan Fore, chairman of its New
York State Chapter and pastor of
the Metro Baptist Church
Brooklyn. Clergyman Dan
recently said he loves the Jewish
people dearly, but then went on
to utter a condemnation
reminiscent of opinions held by
America's late super-anti-Semite.
Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith. Said
Mr. Fore: "Jews have a God-
given ability to make money,
almost a supernatural ability to
make money. They control the
media, they control the city."
THEN THERE'S the matter
of political clout. Does Mr. Fal-
well, who estimates that the
homilies he sends out to some 15
million over 400 stations bring in
165 million a year, get into
politics with his Moral Majority
steamroller or doesn't he?
Early in the game, there was
an undisputed claim that up in
Alaska, Moral Majority had
taken over the Republican state
organization. But a few weeks
ago. when Mark Siljander won a
Primary fourth Congressional,
Michigan fight to seek David
Stockman's seat. Moral Majority '
trumpeted Siljander as its boy
only to have the winner declare
he was sick and tued about hear-
ing of the Moral Majority. Seems
MM didn't send any staff people
into the district after giving S&
j ander a 100 percent rating.
In his own full-page advertise-
ment lor support. Mr. Falwell
spalls it out this way: (A) We

Dallas, warned that the kind of
effort represented by Moral Ma
jority "is an illegitimate attempt
to judge a person's Christianity
on the basis of his agreement or
disagreement with the conserva-
tives on a narrow list of moral
competency. And further con-
fusing the innocent observer. Mr.
Falwell has stated flatly that one
reason Moral Majority doesn't
endorse candidates is the fear of a
loss at the polls.

Small wonder that Moral Ma-
jority backfire is heard frequently
now. Lota of Americans, in-
