The Supreme Court has rejected
an appeal by four men suspected
of ambushing an Arab bus that
they be allowed to see their
lawyer while in police custody.
The men were remanded by a
Jerusalem magistrate who denied
them the right to confer with
counsel at the request of police.
Such requests are rare and the
presiding judge must be
thoroughly satisfied that it is
justified before endorsing it.
The suspects are believed to be
the masked gunmen who opened
fire on a bus carrying Arab day
laborers from the West Bank to
their jobs in Israel early last
Sunday morning. Six of the 18
passengers were wounded, one
Schechter, appealed the decision
which was ruled on in closed
session by a three justice panel
headed by Supreme Court
President Meir Shamgar.
Schechter was engaged to defend
the suspects by Rabbi Meir
Kahane, head of the militant anti-
Arab "Kach" movement.
A similar appeal has been filed
on behalf of three men remanded
in custody as suspects in an
unsuccessful attempt to plant
explosives on the Temple Mount,
site of two major Islamic shrines
in East Jerusalem, last January.
They too have been denied access
to counsel while their appeal is
Redeployment Options Discussed
Premier Yitzhak Shamir has held
consultations with top ministers,
army generals and Foreign
Ministry officials on options for a
redeployment of the Israel
Defense Force in south Lebanon.
Israel Radio, reporting this at
midday, said the decisions would
now be taken "quickly" in the
wake of the Lebanese abrogation
of the Israel-Lebanon agreement
earlier this week.
The radio said the army was
being requested to submit
concrete options for a new line of
deployment to the Cabinet
possibly in time for its next
meeting Sunday. The new line,
the radio said, would facilitate a
thinning out of Israels armed
presence in south Lebanon.
Chief of Staff Gen. Moshe
Levy told the Knesset Foreign
Affairs and Security Committee
that there were "no miracle
solutions in Lebanon," either to
the terrorist threat or to the
potential Syrian strategic threat.
He said a quick withdrawal to the
international border as the
Labor Allignment is advocating
with increasing firmness and
urgency would not solve
Israel's problems.
Levy disclosed that some 2,000
PLO men had by now infiltrated
back into Beirut. He spoke with
satisfaction of the "understand-
ings" which Israel had with
Druze and other forces regarding
the area north of the Awali River.

Egypt to Host
Palestine Meet
is to be the site of a conferenu
"in support of the Palestinian
people" to be held at the end of
this month, the World Jewish
Congress reported.
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization chief Arafat is to
attend the meeting to be con-
vened in Cairo on Mar. 30, ac-
cording to a broadcast carried by
Radio Cairo earlier this week,
which was monitored here by
WJC sources. Preparations were
reportedly already underway for
the event.
The conference is being
organized by the Egyptian
Committee of the Afro-Asian
People's Solidarity Organization

long held a violently anti-Israel
orientation and its stated aim is
to "coordinate the struggle of the
Afro-Asian peoples against
imperialism and colonialism."
Kenya Worried
About Recent
Activities of
Arab Diplomats
LONDON (JTA- Govern-
ment officials in Kenya have ex-
pressed concern over recent
activities of Arab diplomats in
that country, according to
reports by Radio Nairobi received
here by the monitoring sources of
the World Jewish Congress.
Shariff Nassir, Assistant
Minister for Lands and Settle-
ment, and Emmanuel Maitha, a
member of the Mombasa
Municipal Council, complained
that Arab envoys are interfering
in local affairs and urged them
"to stop creating divisions
among Moslem followers." The
two officials said they were
troubled that inter-Arab disputes
were being pursued in Kenya at
the instigation of representatives
from Arab countries.
According to Radio Nairobi
"Political events in the Gulf
states should not be brought to
this country to divide the
Moslems because all Kenyans
want to live together as broth-
ers." Maitha said "No foreigners
should involve themselves in
local affairs as it is not their

From The Rabbis Desk
Is the prevention of an atomic
war a Jewish problem? If it is not
prevented will there be Jews or
Somehow the seriousness of
the atomic threat appears to us
heightened in 1984. The following
words don't they seem
current, immediate?
"Behind the black portent of
the new atomic age lies a hope
which, siezed upon with faith, can
work our salvation. If we fail,
then we have damned everyone to
be the slave of Fear. Let us not
deceive ourselves: We must elect

"Science has torn from nature
a secret so vast in its poten-
tialities that our minds cower
from the terror it creates. The
terror created by weapons has
never stoped man from em-
ploying them. For each new
weapon a defense has been
produced, in time. But now we
face a condition in which ade-
quate defense does not exist ."
This warning was first spoken
in 1946 in the very shadow of
Hiroshima and Nagasaki by
an American Jew on behalf of his
government seeking to inter-
nationalize atomic control.

contemporary and urgent?

GCJFS Offers
Marriage Counseling
Did you know that the Tampa
Bav area has the second largest
divorce rate in the country? And
did vou know that the divorce
rate'among Jewish couples is
higher than the national average.
The natkinal average is now
almost peaking at 50 percent of
all marriages.
"Clearlv we are in a crisis."
says Iris Lee. Director of
Counseling and Outreach at Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service.
Inc. Over half of the counseling
cases at Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service. Inc. are for
marriage counseling and a good
portion of the other are for help
with divorce adjustment.
"I am an optimist." says Mrs.
Lee. "I have seen that couples
who want to make their marriage
work and really try, are usually
able to solve their problems."
Not all marriages can be saved,
but people are capable of working
out even major problems given
the proper help.
Couples fight over many dif-
ferent issues but the biggest ones
seem to be finances and children.
Also when two strong willed
people live together, power
struggles develop quickly and
feelings get injured easily.
Communication gets messed up
when feelings are hurt and
husband and wife can't hear each
other any more.

All these problems lead to
conflict and can cause couples to
look for help. We at Gulf Coast

Rabin Speaks At Bond Meeting
The possibility of Germany
selling weapons to Saudi Arabia
shocks the Israelis, said former
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
"It is inconceivable that Ger-
many will be in a position to
supply to any country the means
by which Jews can be killed,"
commented Rabin at a news
conference prior to a dinner at the
Safety Harbor Spa.
The former Prime Minister was
guest of honor at a banquet on
behalf of State of Israel Bonds,
hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Bernard
Zises of Clearwater.
With regard to the withdrawl
of the Marines from Lebanon,
Rabin said that the U.S. was not
asked by Israel to send in the
Marines, nor were they there for
Israel's security. "The United
States must do what is best for
the United States," he said.
"Israel can take of its own
Yitzhak Rabin is one of the
major Jewish leaders of our time:
a statesman and soldier who has
played a decisive role in the
Yitzhak Rabin
creation, establishment, security
of the State of Israel.
In a career spanning over four
decades, he served as Prime
Minister for three years and for
five critical years he was Israel's
Ambassador to the United
States. He has strengthened the
bonds of friendship between the
peoples of our country and Israel
and has won the respect, ad-
miration and friendship of us all.
His contributions to his nation
began in 1941 when he joined the
Palmach, a crack unit of the
Haganah. After an outstanding
career as a military officer, he
was Israel's Chief of Staff prior to
and during the Six Day War.
Israel Bonds was founded by
the government 33 years ago so
that it could sell its government
bonds and debt securities to
individuals and institutions, such
as banks, union pension plans,
community funds, insurance
companies, etc.
State of Israel Bonds rep-
resesnts the third most widely-
held security in the world behind
U.S. government bonds and
AT&T. The loan of this money is
used by the government for its
economic development budget in
the infrastructure of the economy
such as roads, bridges, utilities,
railroads, airlines, etc.

ADL Update
The National Socialist
Liberation Front
The National Socialist
Liberation Front, a very small
but violent neo-Nazi splinter
group, has recently established a
chapter in St. Petersburg. Their
claimed membership of nine
individuals is, quite possibly, an
exaggeration. The NSLF local
leader, Bob Johnson, has been
associated with right-wing anti-
Semitic organizations for many
Because of their recent press
release, as well as wide
distribution of a flyer introducing
a "white powder hotline," they
have received much media
publicity. The ADL has been
active both working with law
enforcement to monitor the
activities of this organization and
educating the media as to how
not to cross the fine line between
educating the public to a real
concern and being used as a tool
of an extremist organization.
If you receive any of the NSLF
propaganda, please send it to the
ADL office with a note explain-
ing where you got it. Also, please
Do Not Call The Hotline. They
keep records of the number of
calls and use it in their
ED. NOTE: The above in-
formation was received from the
newly opened office of the Anti-
Defamation League in Tampa.

U.S. Says Israel's Security
Concern Is Clearly 'Legitimate'
(JTA) The Reagan
Administration has warned
that it would not take part
in any discussions on
Lebanon that did not in-
clude Israel's "legitimate"
concern for the security of
its northern border.
"We would not participate in
any discussion or negotiations
that did not take that priority
into affect," State Department
spokesman John Hughes said.
He indicated the warning was
aimed at Syria whose "influence
in Lebanon seems to be on the
upcourse" as a result of the
announcement by the govern-
ment of Lebanon that it is
abrogating its May 17 agreement
with Israel.
welcomed the statement by the
Lebanese Cabinet that it would
consider means of safeguarding
Israel's northern border. "How
that will be done remains to be
seen," he added. But he stressed
that "I don't think any fair-
minded person would dispute"
that Israel has had and continues
to have "legitimate concerns"
about terrorist attacks from
Lebanon across its northern
Hughes' remark came after he
read a statement expressing
"regret" over Lebanon's abroga-
tion of the agreement and in-
dicating that the U.S. now
believes that the next step in the
negotiations is up to Syria and its
supporters in Lebanon who
forced the government of
President Amin Gemayel to
break the agreement.
Noting that the U.S. played a
"facilitating role" in negotiating
the agreement and witnessed its
signature, the statement said the
May 17 agreement "still repre-
sents the only agreed formula for
insuring both Israel's withdrawal
from Lebanon and Israel's legi-
timate security interests in
manner consistent with Lebanese
sovereignity. Lebanon needs
peaceful relations with all its

Friend of Israel
Passes Away
LONDON Hugh Fraeser, one of Israel's
strongest and most influential
friends in Britain's ruling
Conservative Party, died here
Mar. 6. He was 66 years old.
A member of Parliament for
the past 30 years, during which
he held several ministerial
positions, he helped to found the
Conservative Friends of Israel in
1974. He was the first chairman
)f its Parliamentary group and
iince 1982 had been the organ-
zation's national president.
Michael Fidler, the organ
nation's director, described Sir
fugh as "one of Israel's sincerest
ind most devoted friends."
tive negotiated formula for
bringing about Israeli with-
drawal," the statement added.
Hughes indicated that the U.S.
will wait and see what happens
before taking any new initiative.
The statement, however,
stressed, "The U.S. does not
intend to abandon the people or
the legitimate government of
Lebanon." Hughes said, "We will
continue to be engaged" in diplo-
matic efforts and stressed that
the U.S. ships will remain off-
shore. He noted that Lebanon
will continue to receive economic
and military aid as well as
military training consistent with
its ability "on the ground" to
receive it.
"Our long-term goals remain.
The restoration of a sovereign,
independent, unified Lebanon;
the removal of all foreign forces
and the security of Israel's
northern border," the State
Department statement said. "We
oppose the partition of Lebanon
which could only lead to greater
instability. The Middle East is a
region of vital importance to the
United States and our allies. The
United States will continue to be
deeply concerned and involved in
efforts to resolve the Arab-Israel
problem and other critical issues
in the Middle East."
clear that the U.S. intends to
continue to protect American
lives and property in Lebanon.
Hughes rejected the sugges-
tion that Secretary of State
George Shultz considers his
efforts in Lebanon a failure. "He
thinks it is not a failure to have
been presented with a challenge
in a country that has been tearing
itself apart for many years, to
have given considerable
American effort and lives to
bring about peace in that country
and perhaps not to have brought
that about in the same way that
many others have not brought it
about," Hughes said.
He added that the effort was a
"worthy thing to have done even
though the desired results have
not been achieved" and said he
believes that the British, French
and Italians, who made up the
multinational force along with
the Marines, feel the same way.
Silberman, 60,

Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, past president

Jewish Federation from 1976 to
1978, vice president of Federation

Volunteers Join Adopt-A-Grandchild
The "Adopt-A-Grandchild"
Project of Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service is honored to
recently receive the volunteer
grandparent services of Caroline
and Dr. H. L. Schlesinger.
Several weeks ago they were
formally introduced to seven-
year-old, Naomi, from north St.
Petersburg. The subsequent
weekly visits have proven
rewarding and totally enjoyable
for both families. Naomi, a single-
parent child, needs the very
special attention and support she
is now receiving from the
Schlesingers who are retired and
living a coast away from their
natural grandchild. We all look
foward to the progress of this
new "match."
"Adopt-A-Grandchild" is
available to children and senior
citizens residing throughout
Pinellas County. Children from
infancy to age 16 are individually
"matched" with senior volun-
teers on a once a week basis.
"Adopt-A-Grandchild" is
designed as a "prevention
program" to help emotionally
troubled or potentially troubled
children cope successfully and
feel valued and loved.
We currently have children on
our waiting list waiting to be
matched with "grandparents"
who have some very special time
to spare and share while strolling
on the beach, during long walks
in a park, or simply in the
comfort of home.
" Adopt-A-Child" "grandpar-
ents" and "grandchildren" are
doing so much to enrich each
others' lives. The Schlesingers.
our newcomers, have been telling
their friends the very same thing.
Families and seniors won't
you join us? Please contact Ms.
Carol Ungerleider, Project
Director, at 381-2373.
The "Adopt-A-Grandchild"
Project is funded jointly by the
Juvenile Welfare Board and the
Jewish Federation.
Silberman was serving aa
president of AIPAC at the time
of his death, the American
Jewish community's sole lob-
bying organization dealing with
issues pertaining to Israel.
Appointed to the position in
May. 1982, during his tenure as
president, the organization's
membership grew 500 percent
and its visibility and impact
increased significantly.
His leadership and contri-
butions to the American Jewish
community were recognized
through various awards he
received during the past two
decades, including the prest-
igious Human Relations Award
of the American Jewish Com-
Jewish Community benefited
immeasurably from the out-
standing leadership Mort Silber-
man provided," said Norman H.
Lipoff, president of the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation. "The
qualities of strength, honesty and
forceful commitment he demon-
strated as one of the architects ot
our Jewish community, coupled
with his remarkable accomplish-
ments on the national level serve
as a model of the talent, wisdom
and dedication needed to build a
strong Jewish community."
Silberman was secretary-
treasurer of East Coast Supply
Company. He lived in Miami for
the past 17 years. He is survived
by his wife, Phyllis; two
daughters, Adria and Margie;
and a brother, Lewis.

Chapter Fingerprints
Members of the St. Petersburg
Evening Chapter of Women's
American ORT, known in
Pinellas County for its commu-
nity involvement. recently
fingerprinted 185 children at the
Nina Harris Exceptional Student
Center. ORT was the only
organization which offered to
fingerprint these special young-
sters, all of whom are mentally
and-or physically handicapped.
Additionally, ORT volunteers
fingerprinted students from
Cross Bayou Elementary School.
This group included in its
number students from the deaf
program, as well as students in
the regular elementary program.
The purpose of fingerprinting
is to provide identifying infor-
mation which parents can use if a
child is lost or kidnapped. In the
case of handicapped children, this
identification has additional
importance, as many of those
youngsters are unable to commu-
nicate effectively or identify
themselves verbally.
The public is aware that ORT
is providing this service, as
recognition was given in the St.
Petersburg Times. The St.
Petersburg Evening Chapter of
ORT had many enthusiastic
volunteers for the fingerprinting
program, and will continue to
provide this worthwhile service
to the community.

A youth hostel is soon to be
built on the coastline of Denmark
on a site from which thousands of
Danish Jews escaped the Nazis.
The hostel will be a unique living
memorial to the great human-
itarian efforts of the Danish
In 1943, after the German
Army took over all power in
Denmark, Hitler ordered the
7,000 Danish Jews rounded up
and deported to Germany. The
Danish people reacted with one
opinion: the crimes against
Jewish citizens would not be
permitted. The Christian
population took immediate action
and gave the Jews shelter.
Systems of routes, safe houses,
and shipping were improvised.
Geographically, Denmark is
separated from Sweden by a body
of water only a few miles wide
called "the Sound." The Danes
used yachts, fishing boats, row-
boats and many other vessels to
ferry Jews across the Sound to
safety in unoccupied Sweden.
The actual sailing was done by
professional fishermen who
risked their lives in the rescue
effort. Although almost the
entire population in the nearby
towns was aware of the rescue
effort, the Germans did not
intercept more than one or two
boats. More than 6,000 Jews were
saved from the Nazis by this
network of escape routes.
The youth hostel being built on
the site where so many Jews
escaped will be a permanent
reminder of the courage and
humanity of the Danish people.
The memories of Passover's gone by. The reading of The Haggadah-
The KkWush-The Matzoh-The MaNishtanah-The stories of the Exodus,
the Afkomin, and above all the singing of the traditional songs and
melodies that are part of the Passover seder.
However, there is still one more tradition which has become a part
of the family Seder table- Manischewitz wine. Manischewitz wine always
graced every holiday table, particularly the
Passover Seder table. It spans
generations and somehow symbolizes the
continuity of the family Seder.
The "flavor" of Passover would not be
the same without Manischewitz Kosher Wine.
