I as well aa local effort to
reach more people and raise more
money for Jewish survival on a
single day than ever before in
history. Hundreds of volunteers
will be calling their fellow Jews in
Pinellas County this Sunday to
ask them for their contributions
to the 1984 Federation Combined
Jewish Appeal campaign. Tens of
thousands of volunteers in other
communities across the country
will be making similar calls.
"We're out to reach almost
every Jew in Pinellas County,"
said Joe Charles. "Some indi-
viduals have already made their
'84 pledges while others are being
contacted through various divi-
sions of the campaign, but we'll
still be trying to reach over 90
percent of our Jewish families on
Super Sunday' itself. We'll be
asking them to support the life-
saving work of Federation and its
beneficiary agencies and services
here at home, in Israel and
around the world.
"I'd like to make a personal
appeal to every Jew in Pinellas
County," continued Joe Charles.
"Please when you are called
don't regard it aa a nuisance.
We're not trying to sell you
something; we re offering you the
opportunity to help ensure Jew-
ish sur ival to help ensure the
survival of your own children and
grandchildren. Please remember
that the person calling you is a
volunteer. He has already made
his pledge to the campaign and is
simply asking you to do the
same. Everyone can afford to
give something and any amount
you give will help other Jews."
The Jewish Community Cen-
ter, of which Joe Charles is Vice
President, is organizing this
year's "Super Sunday" as a
demonstration of its concern and
support for the welfare of the

NEW YORK A lead-
ing American military
authority expects expanded
strategic military coopera-
tion between the United

admirals to Israel held Dec 4-11,
Lt. General (Ret.I Harry Kin-
nard, former commander of the
U.S. Army Development Com-
mand, said that the Jewish State
would contribute combat expert-
ise and experience and the U.S.
its global view
He pointed out that although
"the Israelis are very, very good
at some things we've had
worldwide experience, and I
think we can still teach the Is-
raelis a great deal."
Li General (Ret.) William Nel-
son, former commander of the
12th Air Force, said that he wel-
comed the joint training of
American and Israeli combat
IN SIMILAR vein, retired Ad-
miral Maurice "Mickey" Weis-
ner, former U.S. Navy command-
er in chief. U.S. Pacific Fleet, said
that "there's been a substantial
exchange of information on
tactics and procedures, how we
go about the various parts of
Admiral Weisner contrasted
the different naval missions of
the fleets of each nation, observ-
ing "Israel has hundreds of kilo-
meters of coastline to protect and
must protect its commerce as
well, while the U.S. Navy has a
world role and different goals."
He added, however, taht "they
can cooperate and exchange
extent and "w of increased
strategic cooperation remain to
be worked out, the American of-
ficers anticipated that a great
deal of progress in this area will
be made at a joint U.S.-Israeli
military political meeting sched-
uled to assemble in Washington
in January.
In a press conference in Tel
Aviv following a visit to the
Rambam Hospital in Haifa, Is-
rael's noted burn and trauma
center for combat wounds, the
American military men said they
were convinced that the hospital
was capable of caring for burn
casualties resulting from the
October bombing of the Marine
headquarters in Beirut and did
not know why the victims were
not flown there for treatment.

ers who toured Israeli defense in-
stallations and visited troops at

The Jewish Community
Major Gifts Dinner A Huge Success
We have for some time now
een concerned regarding the
edition of American Jews and
Judaism. All indications suggest
eeneral dissipation of Jewish
Jakes in the life-style of Amer-
Jews. As a matter ot tact, I
cently read of an independent
oil that revealed that the per-
nt of Americans who identified
jemselves as Jews went from
Ive percent to two percent a
artling drop in the total U.S.
opulation which cannot be ex-
ained merely by a declining
lewish birth rate.
Who or what is responsible for
his? There are some who would
Le to place this at the door of
vnagogues and Rabbis. "Syn-
ogues and Rabbis make few
lemands on our constituents
eyond the financial" so goes
he condemnation.
It is a serious indictment, but
othing could be further from the
uth. The synagogue and its
tabbLs make demands; it is the
Bnk and file who fail to comply.
the demand is not the test of
lewish authenticity; compliance
t And many a Rabbi has learned
om bitter experience that when
I or she takes the congregation
task on the one or two occa-
hons when it is assembled in
Lumbers, not only is this exercise
kieffective, it is bitterly resented.
lews want their Judaism when
Bey want it, how they want it,
nd on their terms. Minimalist
Judaism is not the invention of
|he Rabbi or the synagogue it
the invention of the Jewish
lecular establishment.
Rabbi Arthur I. Baseman
If there are few demands
beyond the financial, it is because
institutions other than the syn-
agogue have set the style for such
a development.
The fact that synagogues oc-
cupy a lower rung in the Jew's
consciousness is not due to its
lack of making demands. Perhaps
the reverse is true. Precisely be-
cause it applies a test beyond the
financial one, the synagogue has
become a tiresome bore. If truth
be told, in comparison with the
financial demands made by
others, the synagogue is a piker.
As I see it. the synagogue sets
the standard for optimum Jewish
values. And its function is not so
much to demand them as it is to
personify them.

Agreement With U.S. Is Mirror Image of Egypt 'Peace'
It is highly likely that the strategic
cooperation agreement between Israel and
the United States will fall into the same
category of conditions as the peace treaty
between Israel and Egypt. That is to say,
there will be agreement between Jerusalem
and Washington only so long as Israel does
what pleases the Reagan Administration.
When Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
objected vigorously last week to the
President's pronouncement that he was
pleased with the meeting in Cairo between
Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak and the
now twice defeated Yasir Arafat, whom
even the Arabs no longer regard as of any
consequence, Mr. Reagan and all his men
promptly gave Shamir a lecture on what, as
they saw it. is good for Israel.
That's what counted. How Mr. Reagan
saw things, not Mr. Shamir. At least, in
this case, the Israelis didn't have to give
back the Sinai Peninsula to be treated to
one more fountain of wisdom that gushes
whether they want it to or not.
Still. the gushing fountain in
Washington spills nothing but more Israeli
concessions the same formula that
makes up the Egyptian brew for peace and
friendship the Israelis can be treated to in
Shame on Georgia
The State of Georgia must be made to feel the
shame of its perverseness. The State Board of
Pardons and Paroles, by its decision to deny
posthumously a pardon to Leo Frank, shows
precisely the kind of bigotry in its genes that
motivated a lynch mob to drag Prank out of his
prison cell and lynch him back in 1915 on trumped-
up charges that he raped Mary Phagan. a 13-year-
old girl, on Apr. 23.1913. Frank was tried by jury
and judged guilty of the crime the following Aug. 13.
The anti-Semitism of that outrageous event has
been amply documented by Akmzo Mann now 85
vears old. who last year told reporters that he tad
'seen with his own eyes another man. one Jim Conley
dragging the limp body of the girl to a factory
ba^ment. Mann fearful of testifymg then, said he
wanted to go to his grave in peace.
No less an interested party than the Governor of
Georgia John Slaton commuted Frank s sentence
some two years later on the ground that he sniffed
out the anti-Semitism in the case. It was thisithat
led to the lynching on Aug. 16. 1915
and to the
subsequent wrecking of Slaton s <
Little, it appeara, has changed in Georgia since
then In 1917, the raciflt politician, Tom Watson,
writing in his weekly Jeffereonian Magazine,
demanded execution for Frank, whom he called "the
filthy, perverted Jew of New York."
On Dec. 22,1983, only two weeks ago, Georgia's
State Board of Pardons and Paroles declared that it
is impossible to decide conclusively the guilt or
innocence of Leo Frank," and so denied Frank s
exoneration. Its fancier talk, maybe. But it might
just as well have been published in the Jeffereonian

High Hopes for the New Year
Friday. January 13. 1964
Volume 5
I AM generally not interested
in making a lot of New Year's
resolutions which can just as well
be made, and then broken, at any
other time. But for me the New-
Year is a winter's rite of passage,
and to salute it. I prefer
something akin to a resolution.
yet not exactly like it.
What I have in mind is just as
likely to be far-fetched in terms of
realistic possibility. Still, it has
the socially redeeming value that
its purpose is far less egotistical
and selfish than the resolution,
and that its implementation
would be a boon for the nation
if not. indeed, for all mankind.
Herewith, then a list of my
fondest wishes for the New Year:
finally come to know, in full,
what he is talking about and
what the implications are of his
groundless. sweeping state-
ments, assumptions and
decisions well before he makes
them. Consider, for example, his
taking the blame for the poor
security that led to the terrorist
bombing of Marine headquarters
in Beirut on Oct. 23.
In effect, the President pulled
the rug out from under the
Pentagon inquiry into the
bombing that spurred Secretary
of Defense Weinberger's order of
reviews that might have resulted
in reprimands for some of the
career officers responsible for the
security of the Marine contingent
in Beirut.
In this instance. Mr. Reagan
erased all military accountability
for the tragic consequences of the
Oct. 23 bombing by grandiosely
taking upon himself political
accountability for it. This was. of
course, a meaningless and at the
same time dangerous gesture
that has the potential for even
more tragic consequences than
the bombing itself: It suggests
that military' failures as a result
of negligence should not be
subject to punishment.
ALSO IN the Middle East. I
am reminded of the President's
televised press conference with
the media before he left for his
vacation in California. In
response to a question from
reporters. Mr. Reagan reasserted
his support of his Sept. 1. 1962
"peace initiative," which Yasir
Arafat, the perennial Lazarus of
Islam, once again rejected only
last weekend.
But during the course of his
statement. the President
reviewed the history of Lebanon
since 1976. He needs, as his
statement showed in embarras-
sing proportion, some serious
lessons in the tacts, and until be
get* them, someone ought to tell
him to hold his peace.
In this same area of the world.
I profoundly wish that the Kev.
Jesse Jackson, one of a flock of
Democratic candidates for the
presidency this year, will come to
act like an American and not a
member at-large, say, of the
United Nations General Assem-
bly, where "Get the Stan and
Stripes" is a game played by the
so-called Third World aa a

We may be delighted that

getting the release on Monday of
Lt. Robert Goodman, the naval
officer downed by the Syrians
over Lebanon. Still, Jackson's
handiwork reminds me of "The
Man Wh Came to Dinner," in
which an egomaniac sets up his
own domestic arrangement
within the confines of another
man's domicile.
Isn't it agonizingly interesting
that in the TV interviews from
Damascus following the an-
nouncement of Goodman's
release, only Rev. Jackson did
the talking? Goodman, when he
was given the opportunity, acted
in the best tradition of a disin-
terested officer. U.S. Ambas-
sador Robert Paganelli, of course,
was not even invited to say a
word. Jackson's egomania in
Damascus experienced its finest
OTHER OF my high hopes for
the New Year include the follow-
A just-announced shrinkage
of 2,000 persons in Dade County.
Fla. between April, 1982 and
April, 1983 is attributed to
"negative publicity" about crime
and civic problems. In other
words, people simply ran away.
Perhaps the powers in the county
will, in 1984, come to accept the
fact that the shrinkage is due to
the crimes and the problems
themselves not the negative
publicity. For what other kind of
publicity can possibly attend
these things?
Charles Potter, for 12 years a
fugitive from a Florida chain
gang, is now back in prison in
Florida after losing his battle
against extradition from
Maryland where, for more than a
decade, he lived quietly aa a
furniture restorer.
Undoubtedly, his return to the
chain gang will make him a better
citizen, wont it? On the other
hand, take President Ford, who
pardoned the criminal activities
of President Nixon. Or President
Reagan, who pardoned the
convicted FBI officials, Mark
Fek and Edward Miller, who had
authorized illegal break-ins
during the course of their FBI
These crimes are. of course, far
more acceptable to society than
Potter's armed robbery that put
him into the Florida chain gang
as the first place back in the
1960V Or are they?
Lastly, there is a New Year
1984 hope I have that already is
frustrated. Still. I pray that what
is involved won't work for long

to crush the indomitable will of

created and broadcast libels

Conn. Asked to Reject 'Get'
Requirement for Divorce
American Jewish Congress
has asked the Connecticut
state legislature to reject
proposed legislation that
would require a Jewish
spouse to grant a religious
divorce or "get"
before a civil divoi. 8 can be
Testifying before th judiciary
committee of the state's House
and Senate on Dec 9, Marc
Stern, assistant director of
AJCongress' Commission on
Law and Social Action, said that
while his organization is sym-
pathetic to the problem of
agunot" women who cannot
remarry because they have not
received a Jewish divorce it
believes the legislstion under
consideration violates the consti-
tutional requirement of
separation of church and state.
STCRN SAID his organization
views the "agunot'' issue not as a
civil matter but as an internal
problem of the Jewish religion.
He offered assistance to Con-
necticut legislators in devising
statutes legalizing pre-nuptisl
agreements that would contain
provisions designed to minimize
get problems without violating
constitutional principles.
The proposed legislation would
amend Connecticut s exists I
procedures for conciliation m
divorce cases. Currently, ei

"WE SEE no constitutional
difficulty if the mediator raaet
problems coticerning the giving
of the "get' along with any other
problems which might affect
poet-divorce relations between
the parties." he said. But under
the proposed amendment. Stem
added, the mediator would be
required to inquire into the reli
gious beliefs and practices of the
parties since the state could not
grant a civil divorce unless i
"get" were granted as well.
"The bill would condition i
civil remedy a divorce on
compliance with a religious act,"
Stern declared. Consequently,
AJCongress believes the legis-
lstion to be in violation of the
constitutional principle of
church-state separation, he said.
