guests. Mohammed

Hiry, refused to give an un-
conditional renunciation of
violence in pursuing the ambi-
tions of the Palestinian people.
The two PLO men were here
in a joint delegation with two
Jordanian ministers.
The farcical last-minute
cancellation of the meeting
with Howe was the latest in
the series of events surroun-
ding the Palestinian capture of
the Italian cruise ship Achille
Lauro, the murder of an
American Jewish passenger,
and the subsequent mid-air
capture of the four hijackers.
The cancellation was receiv-
ed here with quiet satisfaction
by Israeli Ambassador Yehuda
Avner. Later he described the
PLO visitors as represen-
tatives of the godfathers of in-
ternational terrorism. The
PLO visit had seriously strain-
ed UK-Israeli relations. But
following the cancellation
there was a much better
climate for the visit which
Israeli Premier Shimon Peres
is due to make to London early
next year.
The Arab world, by contrast,
is incensed by what it sees as
Britain's total submission to
pressure by the United States
and Israel. Unless Britain
moves quickly to contain the
diplomatic damage, it is feared
here that British citizens and
property will be increasingly
vulnerable to Arab terrorist
The two PLO men were in-

Dr. Joyce Brothers To Keynote
Jewish Women's Assembly
Penny Beers and Carole
Klein, co-chairs of the 7th an-
nual Jewish Women's
Assembly of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, have announced that
Dr. Joyce Brothers will deliver
the keynote address at the
event Sunday, Nov. 24 at the
Hyatt Palm Beaches.
In addition to Dr. Brothers'
speech, women attending the
assembly will have the oppor-
tunity of participating in one
of two concurrent morning
sessions conducted by
sociologist Dr. Rela Monson
and Ms. Evelyn Sommer,
president of the Women's In-
ternational Zionist Organiza-
tion (WIZO).
Dr. Brothers, a noted
psychologist, columnist,
author, business consultant,
wife and mother who can be
heard five days a week on the
NBC radio network,
graduated from Cornell
University and received her
PhD from Columbia
After serving on the
faculties of Hunter College
and Columbia University, Dr.
Brothers became one of the
most popular guest lecturers
on women's issues in the
Dr. Brothers will address the
topic of Emerging Choices for
the Jewish Woman in the 80s.
In a recent interview with the
"Macon Telegraph," Dr.
Brothers shared some of her
insights into womanhood in
general by saying, "Women
are trained to focus on their
faults instead of their virtues,"
and she defined success for
herself as "bringing up my
daughter, being married 34
years to the same man and be-
ing in love more today than
before, and helping other
Dr. Brothers, who has
authored six books, the latest

claims that her career comes
third after her husband and
daughter. Nevertheless, she
stresses that women should
not feel guilty for taking the
time to nurture a successful
career or for seeking time to
be alone.
Part of Dr. Brothers'
popularity stems from her non-
didactic approach. "I never tell
anyone what to do," she said.
"I instruct them on the
behavior situation and let
them make the decisions on
their own."
Prior to Dr. Brothers' lun-
cheon address, women atten-
ding will have the choice of

educational sessions. Dr. Rela

Battle Over Arms
! Sales Continues
WASHINGTON (JTA) Overshadowed in the news media recently by the
hijacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro and its aftermath, were the
ongoing and gradually accelerating campaigns here for and against the ad-
ministration's proposed sale of advanced arms to Jordan.
In the past two weeks both Secretary of State George Shultz and Israeli Depu-
ty Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir have put their opposing
cases before members of Congress. Meanwhile, opponents of the sale in both the
House of Representatives and the Senate were collecting signatures for what
they hope will ultimately turn into a Congressional veto of the arms package if
the administration refuses to back down.
President Reagan gave Congress informal notice on Sept. 27 of his intent to
sell Jordan an arms package that includes 40 F-16 or F-20 jet fighters, 300
AIM-9P-4 air-to-air missiles, 12 improved Hawk anti-aircraft missiles with 36
reloads, and 32 Bradley fighting vehicles.
The Arms Export Act provides for a 20-day informal notification period, after
which formal notification can be made to Congress, which then has 30 days in
which it can veto the sale. Senate Democratic Whip Alan Cranston (D., Calif.)

Two important outreach/educational pro-
grams leading up to the Jewish Women's
Assembly on Nov. 24 were held recently by
the Women's Division of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach County.
Outreach Day on Oct. 9 consisted of eight
informal coffees in various locations
throughout the county, and the Presidents'
Coffee, held on Oct. 15 at the Morse
Geriatric Center, gathered together over 30
leaders from Jewish women's organiza-
tions. Both programs focused on the
dissemination of information, effective net-
working and the reaffirmation of the need
to strengthen the bonds of Jewish women
throughout the community.

News Briefs
JERUSALEM (JTA) Egypt's President Hosni
Mubarak has written to Premier Shimon Peres to assure
him of Egypt's determination to thoroughly examine the
tragic event in the Sinai on Oct. 4. The message referred to
the shooting by an Egyptian soldier or policeman of seven
Israeli campers at Ras Burka.
Egypt subsequently said the assailant had run amok.
Egypt's leader assured Peres, moreover, that he would
personally follow the course of the investigation.
Mubarak instructed the envoy to tell Peres that Egypt's
concern over the affair was no less grave than Israel s.
The Premier's office clearly hopes the Egyptian Presi-
dent's statements so different from his initial dismissal
of the affair as a small accident would help ease the
strains that have developed in relations between the two
countries as a result of the killings.
JERUSALEM (JTA) President Richard von Weiz-
saecker of West Germany placed a wreath on the tomb of
Theodor Herzl recently. The first German chief of state
ever to come to Israel, von Weizsaecker arrived on a four-
day official visit.
Within an hour after landing at Ben Gurion Airport he
paid a solemn visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial
in Jerusalem.
Earlier, as he stepped from his special Lufthansa
airplane, the West German President spoke forthrightly of
the Holocaust. "We Germans will certainly not thrust away
remembrance of the past," he said, speaking in English.
"The Jewish people were subjected to untold persecution.
The past cannot be wiped out."
JERUSALEM (JTA) Former Democratic Vice
Presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro called for an in-
ternational convention against terrorism and urged the
United States government to act instead of merely talk
about this scourge.
Ferraro, a former member of Congress, made her
remarks at a luncheon given by Deputy Foreign Minister
Ronnie Milo, a Likud MK.
In a meeting with Premier Shimon Peres, Ferraro
reported on her lengthy discussions in Moscow recently
with President Andrei Gromyko.
She later told reporters that she had found the Soviets
unexpectedly "open" on the issue of Soviet Jewry.
However, she cautioned that it does not mean there would
necessarily be a relaxation in emigration policy.
Ferraro said she would announce next month whether
she would run for the U.S. Senate next year.

States, according to diplomatic
sources, warned that if Arafat
was invited. President Reagan
would not come to address the
special session.
Diplomats here declared the
turn of events as a severe blow
to the prestige of the PLO,
which has observer status at
the UN. Arafat appeared once
before at a General Assembly
session in November, 1974.
After the announcement was
made, Israel's Ambassador to
the UN, Binyamin Netanyahu,
issued the following
"The removal of the pro-
posal to invite the interna-
tional terror organization of
the PLO and its leader, Yasir
Arafat to the 40th anniversary
celebration of the UN is a sign
of a soberizing process in the
Western world regarding the
real nature of the PLO and the
moral distortion which such an
invitation to Arafat would
have constituted. The UN
would have fulfilled its real
obligation by bringing the PLO
and Arafat to an international
court that would judge them
for their terrible crimes
against the Jewish people and
Diplomats here noted that
Arafat, theoretically, can still
be invited to the UN General
Assembly to participate in the
Middle East debate and the
debate on the Palestinian issue
after the special anniversary
session ends.
Another possibility, though
very remote according to the
diplomats, is that the Arabs
and their allies introduce a
new resolution to invite Arafat
to the special anniversary

NJCRAC Urges Action To Prevent Arms Sale
(The following statement was
issued by the Israel Task Force
of the National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory
As the media reported, the
Administration gave Congress
informal notification of its plan
to sell Jordan new advanced
arms. (The expected Saudi
package has not yet been
presented to Congress.) The
proposed Jordanian package
includes 40 F-16 or F-20 air-
craft, 12 batteries of mobile
Hawk missiles (each battery
contains multiple missiles), 72
Stinger missiles, 1,000
Sidewinder air-to-air missiles,
and 32 Bradley fighting
vehicles that carry TOW anti-
tank missiles and 25mm.
machine guns. The package
will cost $1.5 to $1.9 billion,
depending upon the aircraft
chosen, and a substantial part
of this bill will be paid for by
the American taxpayer
through military credits.
The informal notification
period lasts 20 days, during
which time Congress can take
steps to persuade the Ad-
ministration not to proceed
with the sale. The Administra-
tion is expected to give formal
notification of the sale soon.
Congress then will have 30
days to pass legislation to
block any part or all of the pro-
posed arms package. A majori-
ty in both Houses is needed to
stop the sale.
A joint resolution of disap-
proval aimed at barring the
sale of weapons to Jordan is
circulating in the House and
the Senate. It is recommended
that your Congressmen and
Senators be contacted im-
mediately, in person, by
phone, or in writing, and urged
to sign the resolution.
While there is no bill number
yet, Senators should contact
Senators John Heinz (R-PA) or
Edward Kennedy (D., Mass.),
and Congressmen should con-
tact Representative Larry
Smith (D., Fla.) or Represen-
tative Vin Weber (R., Minn.).
The new joint resolution, if
enacted, is binding legislation,
as distinguished from the
earlier non-binding resolution
introduced by Kennedy and
Heinz. It is felt that we cannot
assume that members who
signed onto the earlier resolu-
tion will automatically sign on-
to the new measure.
Contacting Members of Con-
gress is particularly important
now, given King Hussein's
own lobbying efforts to obtain
arms. Reports indicate King
Hussein made a positive im-
pact on Capitol Hill recently.
We understand that Hussein
met with 20 members of the
House and as many as 50
Senators. The New York
Times, for example, reported
Representative Robert hard questions of why he won't that opposition, members of

traditionally supportive of
Israel, said Hussein "made an

gresspeople and Senators have
reacted similarly. We've been
told that Hussein was not

Soviet participation, or why he

Klinghoffer's Friend Says
He Was Killed Because He Was A Jew
Maurice Blond, a boyhood
friend of Leon Klinghoffer of
New York, the only passenger
on the Italian cruise liner
Achille Lauro to be murdered
by the Arab terrorists hi-
jackers, said that there was
"no question" that Klinghoffer
had been slain "because he
was a Jew."
Blond, who is chairman of
the Board of the Israel Bond
campaign's New York Division
of Organizations, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that Klinghoffer was a regular
contributor to New York
synagogues and was always
"very generous" in giving to
Jewish causes.
Blond said his friend has
been very active in the
Brotherhood Synagogue in
Greenwich Village where Kl-
inghoffer had resided, and a
consistent contributor to
synagogues on the Lower East
Side where the two men had
been active as youths in the
Grand Street Settlement
House, a gathering place for
Jewish immigrants. Blond said
that Klinghoffer had been "a
great believer in Judaism."
Klinghoffer and his wife,
Marilyn, had celebrated their
36th wedding anniversary on
Sept. 18 and had at the time
talked excitedly about the
cruise they would take, Blond
recalled. Marilyn was not
aboard the ship when the ter-
rorists seized it and later shot
Klinghoffer and threw his
body overboard. She had re-
mained in Egypt with other
passengers to go sightseeing.
Blond said that the news of
his death, after initial reports
that none of the passengers
nor crew members had been
hurt during the two-day
orderal, was "the worst thing
for his family and friends to
have to accept.
Klinghoffer's daughters, Ilsa
and Lisa, stayed in the
bedrooms of their homes, cry-

since the PLO as a "fighting
army" was destroyed as a
result of the operation in
Lebanon. "But terrorism is
difficult to prepare for," Elan
said. "You have to take all
measures possible, including
using advance knowledge of a
terrorist attack. One might ex-
pect the PLO to escalate the
present chain of terrorist at-
tacks that we've been seeing
over the past 12 months. But
the minute the PLO stops
these terrorist attacks, we'll
stop retaliating and then
perhaps we can sit down and
talk peace; however, if they
decide to escalate, it will be to
their disadvantage in the long
run. The cost to them will be
much higher than the cost to

force made up of many

The Major said it was impor-
tant to realize that the SLA is
not officially recognized by the
Beirut government and is
therefore supported by the
South Lebanon, Elan admitted
that Israel initially misjudjed
the demographic reality of the
area. "We at first put all our
eggs in one basket, with the
Christians. But with the
Palestinians out, the majority
of the population in the area is
Shiite. We now have an ongo-
ing dialogue with the Shiite
community. However, they're
an extremely fundamentalist
group whose religious leaders
hold an almost mystical .in-
fluence. They don't think in
Western terms, and they res-
pond emotionally, not intellec-
tually. Therefore it is impossi-
ble to tell how South Lebanon

"This will not stop the odd
katyusha rocket being fired
over Israel, but it will prevent
any kind of organized incur-
sion," said Elan.
Israel's economic recovery is
dependent largely on reduced
government spending, and the
military is not an exception.
As Major Elan noted, the
government austerity pro-
gram enacted a mandatory 3
percent cutback in civil service
manpower, and because
soldiers are considered part of
the civil service, there has
been a "trimming of the excess
fat." Elan insisted that the
"standing army is the
backbone" of Israel's defense
and that only military jobs pro-
viding services such as educa-
tion, research, and work in

Myra learned that funeral service
between Florida and New York was
less expensive than she thought.
Thanks toThe GUARDIAN PLAN^program.
Myra believed in being prepared.
That's why she looked into buying cemetery property in Florida
where she had retired. Her two sisters, her children and her grandchildren
still lived in the Mew York area. And if the truth be known, Myra would have
preferred to have funeral services held in Mew York. But she thought that
would cost too much.
Luckily Myra learned about The GUARDIAN PLANthe insurance
funded, prearranged funeral program. She liked what she heard, so she
decided to talk to The GUARDIAN PLAN counselor. He told her about
RIVERSIDE and the other members of the guardian family of Jewish
and JEFFER who honor The GUARDIAN PLAN program in Florida and New
York. Myra decided that The GUARDIAN PLAN program would make things
a lot easier on her family up north.
So Myra settled all the details in advance with the help of her
counselor. Everything was arranged as she wished. And at a cost she felt
was right for her.
She feels better because now she has more time to concentrate
on living.

"Qualitatively," Elan con-
tinued, "today the Arab ar-
mies, especially Syria, Egypt

are of equal quality with those

the training, expertise and

military presence in Judea,
Samaria and Gaza, Major Elan
claimed, "In most West Bank
cities the military is not involv-
ed in the everyday life of the
citizens, Jewish or Arab." He
observed that routine security
and policing is handled
primarily by local police forces
comprised predominantly of
local Arab residents.
"Only in those areas where
there are disturbances or at-
tacks against civilians does the
local government decide
whether there is a need to br-
ing in military assistance. The
presence of IDF units in Judea
and Samaria is only noticed in
certain areas and at certain
times when it is necessary to
show a presence to maintain
the normal life for the
civilians. So in the casbah in
Hebron you have to station
soldiers all the time or people
will get knifed, while in
Bethlehem you never see any
military personnel because
there's no need for them,"
Elan said.
Since morale is an important
element in military effec-
tiveness, the major was asked
to comment on this topic with
regard to Israel's armed
"The Israeli soldier knows
that he's not fighting for a con-
cept, idea or social system, but
for his home," Elan began.
"He knows that every inch an
Arab army advances toward
Jerusalem, Tel Aviv or Haifa is
bringing them closer to his
"However," Elan continued,
"there was talk in Israel and
abroad about a decline in
morale in the Israeli army dur-
ing the operations in Lebanon.
This was a misunderstanding
of the fact that Israel, being a
free and democratic society,
allows argument, disagree-
ment and political debate
amongst its citizens in all
walks of life. Since the bulk of
the Israeli army, including
units that served in Lebanon,
is made up of reservists, the
prevailing debates that sur-
rounded the operations in
Lebanon continued when the
men and women were called
up for active reserve duty."
"This is not to be confused
with demoralization," insisted
Elan. "Today, having com-
pletely pulled out from
Lebanon, we do not see
evidence of demoralization or
demotivation in the IDF. On
the contrary, in a survey com-
pleted four months ago, we
found that the number of new
recruits volunteering for

said that a more significant rift
has taken place between
Egypt and Israel following the
massacre of seven Israelis on
holiday in the Sinai.
Elan provided detailed infor-
mation received from
eyewitnesses. Although it is
still uncertain who the
perpetrator was, it is clear
that the shooting was done by
a uniformed Egyptian, either a
border patrolman or a soldier.
Elan also reported that an
Israeli ballistics report in-
dicated that there may have
been more than one gunman
responsible for the killings.
The firing reportedly lasted
for three hours, and two in-
dependent eyewitnesses said
they saw Egyptian soldiers
near the scene laughing while
the slaughter took place.
Parents and an Israeli
medical student were pro-
hibited by Egyptian soldiers
from ministering to the seven
wounded Israelis who even-
tually died, four of whom were
children and five of whom had
no more than superficial
wounds, but who died as a
result of blood loss due to lack
of medical attention.
Claiming that in addition to
gross violations of peace
treaties such as this the Egyp-
tians have not adhered to the
spirit of the Camp David ac-
cords, Elan suggested that
more action on Egypt's part
needs to be taken before a true
"The Arabs
earnestly and
recognize and accept hnZ
right to exist in the Middle
East as a Jewish state and
must renounce all belligerent
intentions toward Israel"
Elan declared.
"The Arab countries must
agree to sit down with Israel
and with those Palestinians
who renounce the PLO cove-
nant, which calls for the
destruction of Israel, in order
to solve together the Palesti
man problem," continued
Elan. "Israel has continuously
declared its desire to end all
warfare in the Middle East and
work together with the Arabs
in the scientific and economic
development of the area."
Elan concluded by saying
"As long as the Arab nations
as a whole and the so-called
Palestinian leadership in par-
ticular, continue to proclaim
that peace will come when
Israel expels all the Jews that
arrived after 1948, along with
their descendents, and in their
stead accepts as full citizens all
the Palestinian Arabs who ran
away in 1948, along with their
descendents, there will be no
"Israel is a realistic coun-
try," Elan observed, "not a
suicidal one."

Israel's First Ecological Engineers To Graduate
Eleven students at the
Hadassah Community College
in Jerusalem will soon become
the first practical engineers in
ecology and environmental
sciences to graduate from a
new two-year program that is
the only one of its kind in
In addition to required sub-
jects in the college's
laboratory assistant course,
the program includes studies
in air and water quality, noise

dustrial waste, hygiene and
Israeli environmental law.
Course coordinator Miryam
Bairey-Alburqueque, a native

aliyah to Israel and is a lec-
turer on water technology,

Shamir Affirms Jews Oppose
Apartheid, Racial Discrimination
"To be a Jew means to be
against apartheid. To be a
Jew means to be against
racial discrimination,"
declared Yitzhak Shamir,
Deputy Prime Minister and
Foreign Minister of Israel.
Shamir stated categorically
that the position of Israel, the
State of Israel, and the govern-
ment of Israel on South Africa is
clear: "We are against apartheid,
we oppose any racial discrimina-
tion, and we have said it openly
before other governments ever
dared to say anything on this
Addressing a group of civic
leaders and government officials
convened by the Jewish Communi-
ty Relations Council of New York,
Shamir asserted that the system
of apartheid could never be accep-
table to Israel because it stands in
opposition to its moral principles.
"Apartheid is against all of the
lessons of Jewish history,"
Shamir said, and Israel has com-
municated this to the South
Africans at all appropriate inter-
national forums.
IN RESPONSE to a question
from the publisher of the Amster-
dam News, a leading black weekly
published in New York, Shamir
stated that Israel maintains
diplomatic relations with Pretoria
largely because of the need to
maintain contact with the Jewish
community in South Africa which
has clearly stated its opposition to
However, the Foreign Minister
made it very clear that beyond
diplomatic relations, all other ties
with South Africa are "constrain-
ed and very reduced more so than
with almost all Western and some
African countries."
Shamir expressed his disap-
pointment with the failure of the
global community to give enough
importance to solving the famine
ravaging the African continent
which "may be the most impor-
tant international problem after

Soviet Union in the Middle East,
the Foreign Minister said that
although he has detected a change
in style, there have been no
changes in the policies of the
Soviet Union in regard to Israel

Shamir said he believes that
Soviet bloc countries are altering
their attitude toward Israel and
he stressed that they must be
given every oppourtunity "to take
such a step even if they are
IN VIEW of this positive trend
among those aligned with the
Soviets, Shamir expressed the
hope that "in the interest of Israel

governments will "encourage any
sign of change in the intransigent
and stubborn positions of the
Soviet Union."

Ce LiTed There Too. By Ken-
neth Libo and Irving Howe.
New York: St. Martin's/Marek,
1984. 347 pp. $24.95.
Too small for the coffee table
ind too large for the bookcase,
his effort to tell about the Jews in
he Western United States just
poesn't come off. It relies on let-
:ers, diaries, poems, newspaper
nicies and pictures. But the pic-
ires are often blurry and the
Documents frequently refer to
pews on the Atlantic seaboard
ather than the West.
The book is divided into three
kverlapping sections: Sephardim
lid Ashkenazim 1630-1830; The
Central European Experience
1830-1910; East European Jews
180-1930. This unhelpful division
les little to illuminate the theme
f the book. It only leads to confu-
pon and repetition, especially bet-
ween the second two sections.
I Some material occasionally cap-
ures the reader's interest, but it
l hard to read the book straight
trough. Even dipping into the
book from time to time won't help
much. On the plus side, there are
two essays by Irving Howe which
open and close the book. His con-
cluding statement is a penetrating
analysis of American Jewrv to-
day. It goes far beyond the subject
of the book. However, five
thoughtful pages of epilogue can-
not atone for the uncoordinated
hodge-podge which precedes
God in the Teachings of Conser-
vative Judaism. Edited by
Seymour Siegel and Elliot
Gertel. New York: The Rab-
binical Assembly, 1985.
Distributed by Ktav Publishing
House. 278 pp. $20.
Judaism is often said to be a
religion of deeds rather than
creeds and that, therefore,
theology plays a subordiante role.
This book richly demonstrates
that theology is alive and well in
Judaism. It brings together 20
essays, most of which were
previously published in journals or
as book chapters. They were writ-
ten during the last 50 years, most-
ly in the 1950's and 1960's. The
authors are leading Conservative
rabbis and teachers associated
with the Jewish Theological
Seminary. They include such
luminaries as Mordecai Kaplan,
Robert Gordis, Abraham Heschel
and Milton Steinberg.
The essays deal with approaches
to God in Conservative Judaism
and show how varied these ap-
proaches are within one sector of
Judaism. Seymour Siegel, one of
the editors, has written an ex-
cellent introduction and both
editors have provided useful cap-
sule summaries cf each essay.

Over the next few months The Jewish Floridian will highlight the
activities, programs and people which make up the family of agencies of
The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. Our hope is that our
readers will discover some of the beneficial uses to which the funds rais-
ed in the 1986 Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County/United Jewish
Appeal/Project Renewal campaign will be put.
Whether you witness the gratitude and camaraderie of senior
citizens as they enjoy a hot kosher meal or see a group of pre-
schoolers singing Hebrew songs and clapping with joy, you will
know by the especially caring atmosphere that there is something
unique going on at the Jewish Community Center.
Talk to someone who has found a companion through the Part-
ner Connection, or to a boy or girl from a single-parent home who
has had life enhanced with a Big Friend through the Chaverim pro-
gram, and you will become aware that JCC programming, which of-
fers something for everyone in our community, is a major element in
the quality of Jewish life in Palm Beach County.
The miracle of it all is that so many positive things have happen-
ed to so many people in such limited space. The professional and
volunteer staffs have worked wonders under the most stringent
logistical conditions. Yet, when we see the successes of the past, we
can easily dream about the miracles the future will hold for the JCC
in its new location.

"The preschool is a warm, loving environment geared to enhancing the
self-concept and Jewish awareness of the children. We look forward to ex-
pansion with the expansion of the JCC.
Connie Berry, chairperson
Early childhood is a time to look, a time to grow, a
time to feel and a time to love. It is working
together and making new friends. It is the joy of
creative expression and the pride of "doing it
myself." The Early Childhood program of the JCC
is based on the developmental needs of individual
children. The basic goals of early childhood educa-
tion include creating an environment which pro-
vides opportunities for children to aid in their
physical, social and intellectual and emotional
The Jewish Community Center's Staff works

an essential part of living and growing and we en-

building, manipulative toys, fine

"I'm proud of the programming
that comes out of this little place,"
said Harreen Bertisch. assistant
executive director of the JCC.
Originally hired five years ago
as a children's worker, Harreen
has seen the growth in the Jewish
community reflected in the
growth of the Center's programs.
Having been involved in most of
the phases of JCC operation.
Harreen has found programming
to be the most exciting: "1 really
enjoy helping people search and
enrich their lives Judaically. It's a
wonderful feeling when program
needs are fulfilled; I love creating
new programs."
Harreen joins the rest of the staff
and lay leadership, whom she
describes as "excited and hard-
working," in looking ahead op-
timistically: "This center can cer-
tainly become the hub of Jewish
life in the county."
Noting the importance of net
working with other groups and
agencies in the Jewish communi-
ty, Harreen adds, "It's exciting to
work with other groups and agen-
cies. It's good to share ideas
because that's what makes a
Jewish community work."

train but also to dedicate, to con-
secrate. The Jewish Community
Center of the Palm Beaches is
developing programs that will of-
fer every adult the opportunity to

understand, and appreciate our
Jewish heritage.
Health & Physical Education
"By combining a broad range of programs with interesting specialty
events, such as the planned superstars competition, the health and
physical education committee hopes to increase the participation in JCC
activities and maintain a high quality of programming."
Stuart Gottlieb, chairman
Under the proper guidance and supervision, health takes on more
of a connotation than just freedom from disease and expands itself to
total fitness, including elements of proper muscle tone, endurance,
agility, coordination, flexibility, body awareness, and relaxation. Pro-
perly supervised physical activity also tends to encourage sports that
can be continued throughout life and stresses the creative expression of
the use of leisure time in a quality way.
"Every activity of man should be purposeful and the purpose of
physical activities is to serve as a means towards the achievement of
man's major purpose in life." (Maimonides)

encouraged to participate.
"We started as a small senior
social group," Jean Rubin, direc-
tor of CSSC, remembered. Then
in 1977 a federal grant was receiv-
ed and services expanded to in-
clude transportation, education
and recreation.
Three years ago a hot. kosher

rently this program serves

Jean Kubin
125-200 seniors a day at two loca-
tions, not including the home-
delivered meal service, which
helps feed about 60 people daily.
The CSSC provides essential
"life-support" as well as cultural
and recreational enrichment op-
portunities. "The retirement
years can be difficult," Mrs. Rubin
observed, "and we feel that we
have the responsibility to develop
programs and services that will
help our elderly grow and main-
tain their independence."
As with all JCC activities,
volunteers play a critical role.
Many of the volunteers who work
with- the seniors are seniors
themselves. "This enables them to
feel needed and worthwhile, and
their generosity enhances the pro-
gram," said Mrs. Rubin.
Like all the JCC leaders, staff
and members. Jean Rubin is fond
of peeking into the future: "In our
new facility we'll be able to pro-
vide more things for all people of
all ages. That's our dream."

Reagan Will
Cranston warned recently that
President Reagan "faces almost
certain defeat" by the Congress in
his announced plan to sell U.S.
;irms to Jordan.
At a press conference held in
Westwood, Cranston also ex-
pressed deep concern about the
announcement by Great Britain of
a proposed $5 billion arms sale to
Saudi Arabia.
The President has proposed
a $1.5 to $1.9 billion sale of
advanced combat fighters and
other weapons to Jordan. King
Hussein of Jordan addressed the
United Nations and met
with President Reagan and Con-
gressional leaders in Washington
FULL TEXT of Cranston's
statement reads:
"I am deeply concerned about
the President's announcement to
sell from $1.5 to $1.9 billion in
arms to Jordan and a previous an-
nouncement by Great Britain that
it intends to sell $5 billion in com-
bat planes and other weapons to
Saudi Arabia.
"These two events, occurring
within two days, could result in a
dangerous new escalation of the
arms race in the Middle East.
"Both are unacceptable and,
while the Congress can have no
direct effect on the British
government, we do have the legal
authority to stop the Reagan Ad-
ministration from selling lethal
weapons to the Arabs.
"PRESIDENT Reagan faces
almost certain defeat from the
Congress if he proceeds with his
plans to sell advanced fighter
planes and other weapons to
"A resolution opposing sales to
Jordan, which I am supporting
and will work for in the Senate,
already has 70 Senate signatures.
"And in recent days, I and Sen.
Bob Packwood of Oregon have
secured almost 60 signatures in
the Senate opposing U.S. arms
sales to the Saudis.
"So clearly the Senate has
grave concerns about the arms
buildup in the Middle East both by
the Arabs and Israel.
"King Hussein and President
Reagan will be meeting in
Washington to discuss the Middle
East. The King has also indicated
that he will talk with Congres-
sional leaders.
Recently, before the United Na-
tions, the King pledged his sup-
port for new peace talks with
Unrelated incidents of violence in

Brenner was attacked from

He was treated for cuts at a local
hospital and sent home. His
assailant was not caught. Brenner
said he would continue to shop in

American security interests and
to our taxpayers. To meet the
threat of new arms by their Arab
neighbors, Israel will be forced to
increase its defense spending, fur-
ther exacerbating its already
serious economic problems. This,
in turn, could lead to requests for
more economic aid from the
United States.
THE HISTORY of the Middle
East is a history of the futility of
arms buildups which have only led
in one direction to war and
endless death and bloodshed.
"The United States and Great
Britain, both of which have long
involvement and experience in the
Middle East, should know better.
"It has to stop someplace,
"I will do my part to stop it
Sen Alan Cranston
"The King will learn that the
Congress also supports a genuine
new peace initiative in the Middle
"But any peace move must be
based on two unalterable
"First, the Arab nations must
drop their long-standing state of
war against Israel and agree to
recognize its existence as a nation
under United Nations Security
Council resolutions 242 and 338.
"Second, they must agree to
negotiate directly with Israel on
terms of a peace agreement.
"Until these conditions are met,
there should be no new arms to
the Arabs and there can be no real
peace effort in the Middle East.
"PRESIDENT Reagan has
said that his proposed arms sale to
Jordan is necessary because of a
threat to that nation from Syria.
"That is an unacceptably
misleading attempt to rationalize
an escalation of the arms race in
the Middle East that will under
mine Israel's security.

Random Thoughts
Come with me back to a
bygone age, the world of New
York in the 1930's and 1940's.
There were no street gangs,
no muggings, no graffiti, no
heavy traffic, no housing shor-
tage, no fear, and no money.
We did have lots of people and
plenty of togetherness. The
Jewish family unit represented
strength and security. It was a
devastating depression era but
since everyone was in the
same boat, a closeness and a
caring for others seemed to
prevail. It was the scene of my
childhood and I'd like to share
some memories with you.
Although strictly middle
class, we were considered
"allrightnicks" because my
father owned a business as
well as a car. After six long,
hard days in a retail store, it
was his pleasure to drive us
around the city on Sunday. To-
day such a trip would be im-
possible with cars double and
triple parked all over the place.
But in those days the pace was
easier, the streets were emp-
tier, and gas was 19 cents a
Daddy knew the city in-
timately and drove through
side streets that most people
never knew about. We had a
1935 Chrysler, big, black, and
built like a tank. It demanded
respect wherever we went. To
me it represented sheer luxury
and I did not know until many
years later that it had been
bought nearly new for only
My father was Romanian by
birth and naturally gravitated
towards the lower East Side.
In addition to open stalls,
there were stores that sold
items of Judaica, and
wholesale linen shops (closed
on Saturday but open on Sun-
day). Mostly we frequented the
Romanian restaurants such as
Moscowitz and Lupowitz or
These were more like social
clubs where patrons would re-
main for many hours just to
converse in their native
tongue. If we stayed till even-
ing, I have recollections of be-
ing put to sleep on two chairs
pushed together seat to seat. I
never minded; just being there
was a rare treat.
Those gala dinners are as
vivid as though they happened
just yesterday. Appetizers of
ikra (fish roe with lemon juice)
and potlejellah with maslinehs
(eggplant salad and wrinkled
black olives) were openers.
Then came mushk steak (strip
tenderloin) and carnotzlach
(sausages made of ground beef
and chopped garlic). The only
green vegetable we ever saw
was a sour pickle, but fried
potatoes were always served.
PALM BEACH 832-0211
Each table boasted several
blue glass bottles of seltzer.
What fun we kids had with
those shpritzer handles!
When we were at Joe's, we
loved the swarthy gypsy who
played the piano rather badly
but plenty loud. He wore one
earring which caused all kinds
of comment in those days.
Who could ever forget him and
his aura of mystery?
If we went for early dinner,
everyone piled in the car and
we headed uptown afterwards.
We drove up the Grand Con-
course, east on 170th Street,
and onto Claremont Parkway.
Then a sharp left to Bathgate
Avenue and there it was .
pushcart heaven.
Block after block was
covered with pushcarts filled
to overflowing with every kind
of merchandise. Crockery and
china, boots and shoes, hard-
.ware and cut glass, books and
magazines, used furs and
clothing, linens and carpet
remnants, plus groceries and
vegetables. Hawking vendors
bargained over prices and
tried to cajole customers into
increasing their purchases.
These vendors were not
above a bit of trickery either.
On one visit my mother bought
some seedless grapes (10 cents
per pound or three pounds for
a quarter). When the seller
picked up a bag and started to
fill it, daddy insisted in filling
the bag himself. Apparently it
was common practice to have
about a half pound of loose,
undesirable grapes stashed
away in the bottom. You would
pay for three pounds but ac-
tually only two and one half
pounds were edible. Trust my
father to know the ropes.
We walked from street to
street, from pushcart to
pushcart. It was a dream
world of abundance. The
voices still ring in my ears .
Yiddish, Polish, Russian and
German. It's all a part of the
past and a long ago that will
never return.
Since then I have visited
many countries and cities,
eaten in countless restaurants,
and shopped in many stores,
but nowhere, no place, offers
the nostalgia of those Sunday
family outings throughout
New York City.
You can keep your bargain

Battle Over Arms Sales Continues continued from p*^ 1
said at a press conference at the end of September that Reagan "faces almost
certain defeat" in his plan to sell the weapons to Jordan.
Cranston and five other Senators Edward Kennedy (D., Mass.), Rudy
Boschwitz (R., Minn.), John Heinz (R., Pa.), Daniel Inouye (D., Hawaii) and
Robert Kasten (R., Wise.) have enlisted substantial bi-partisan support for a
resolution disapproving of the sale. By the end of last month, the senators said
they had over 70 signatures.
In addition, a "Dear colleague" letter co-sponsored by 12 representatives, in-
cluding Dante Fascell (D., Fla.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee, and Larry Smith (D., Fla.), began circulating in the House at the beginning
of this month and, according to Smith, has won some 75 signatures to date. Reps.
James Florio (D., N.J.) and Norman Lent (R., N.Y.) have enlisted 76 co-sponsors
for a sense of the Congress resolution opposing the sale until Jordan negotiates
with Israel.
The administration has given no indication so far that it will be" deterred by the
strong opposition it faces in Congress over the arms package. To the contrary,
Shultz made it clear in a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that
the president would press ahead on schedule, in spite of requests that he
postpone the debate for at least another few months, pending developments in
the Mideast peace process.
In his testimony, Shultz repeated earlier arguments by the Administration that
Jordan's King Hussein has fulfilled the requirements set out in the 1984 Foreign
Aid Act for the transfer of new U.S. arms to Jordan. The legislation links any
such sale to public commitment by Jordan that it recognizes Israel and will
negotiate with it "promptly and directly." It also requires the President to cer-
tify that these conditions have been met when the administration proposes a ma-
jor sale.
Shultz noted, in particular, the King's statement during his recent visit here
that he was willing to negotiate "promptly and directly" with Israel under the
"appropriate auspices." However, Hussein stressed that such auspices would be
an international conference in which the Soviet Union would participate. Both
the U.S. and Israel have rejected this framework.

Jewish to best serve the Jewish people. Florida's other major funeral
organization, the Riverside, is part of a non-Jewish owned and operated
Houston conglomerate. Here are some other differences:
We're family owned and operated ... so our family can serve

warmth and human understanding are of utmost importance.
We have more Jewish funeral directors than the other major
funeral home in Florida.
We respect the Sabbath; we conduct no services on any Jewish
You cannot get better service or better value anywhere in
We think religious tradition is what makes us Jewish. If you
demand a non-conglomerate, family owned, totally Jewish service,
we're the choice in Florida.
