Jewish Astronaut Dies In Shuttle Tragedy
Dr. Judith Resnik
Mubarak Talks Tough
on Mideast Issue i
President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt, addressing the Euro-
pean Parliament here last
week, took a tough stance on
Middle East issues. He called
for an international conference
with participation of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion and stressed several times
in his speech to the 21-nation
assembly that in his view, the
PLO is the only legitimate
representative of the Palesti-
nian people.
His speech contained no
references to the peace pro-
cess with Israel or to his
predecessor, the late Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat, who in-
itiated it in 1977. It was broad-
cast live over Egyptian Radio.

Egyptian officials here
refused to comment on press
reports that Mubarak had been
scheduled to meet with Israeli
Premier Shimon Peres. They
were also mum on the meeting
Mubarak held in Cario with
Ezer Weizman, a member of
Peres' Cabinet. '
In his address, Mubarak said
Western Europe could and
should play an activjs role in
helping prepare an | interna-
tional peace conference on the
Middle East. He said| the con-
ference should be convened
without preconditions and
should be based "on trje equali-
ty of rights between; the two
sides and the necessity to
establish an equilibrium bet-
ween Israel's right to fexist and
the Palestinians' righjt to self-
Mubarak also called for an
international conference on
means to combat terrorism.
He urged the international
community to adopt stringent
laws on the subject. But he
condemned as "a grave
mistake the tendency f accus-
ing the Palestinian people of
terrorism or to accuse certain
religious sects." He!was ap-
parently referring to ihe Shiite
Moslems, who are j believed
responsible for most pf the ter-
rorist acts connected) with the
ongoing crisis in Lebanon.
(JTA) The explosion of
the space shuttle Challenger
about a minute after launching
here took the lives of all seven
aboard, including Dr. Judith
Resnik, the first Jewish
woman astronaut.
The 100-ton, multi-million
dollar spacecraft lifted off in
what officials of the National
Aeronautics and Space Agen-
cy (NASA) said was a '^perfect
launch." About a minute later
it burst into a fireball, and
smoking debris plunged into
the Atlantic about nine miles
In June, 1984, Resnik, then
35, became the second woman
to go into space. She and five
male crewmembers of the Or-
biter Discovery were on a
seven-day scientific mission.
Born in Cleveland, she grew
up in Akron. Ohio and earned a
bachelor's degree in electrical
engineering at Carnegie-
Mellon University in 1970. She
was subsequently employed as
a design engineer by RCA and
it that capacity worked on
several NASA projects.
From 1974-77, Resnik was a
biomedical engineer and staff
Fellow in the Laboratory of
Neurophysiology at the Na-
tional Institutes of Health in
Bethesda, Md. In 1977 she
received a doctorate in elec-
trical engineering from the
University of Maryland.
Before her selection by
NASA for space flight training
in 1978, she was a senior
systems engineer in product
development with the Xerox
Corp. at El Segundo, Calif.
After completing her year's
training as an astronaut, she
worked on projects related to
development of Orbiter
Resnik's paternal grand-
parents came from Kiev. They
left Russia in the late 1920's
and settled in Palestine before
coming to the U.S. Her father
attended a yeshiva in
Her family moved to
Cleveland where her grand-
father, Jacob, was a shochet,
and her grandmother, Anna,
worked for Jewish organiza-
tions. Her father, Dr. Marvin
Resnik, was active in many
Jewish causes. Resnik attend-
ed Hebrew school in Cleveland
and was Bat Mitzvahed there.
The disaster that overtook
space shuttle Challenger
followed a series of cancelled
launchings due partly to
technical problems and partly
to weather conditions. There
were no immediate indications
as to what caused the
spacecraft to explode.
Palm Beach Division
Mayfair House to Hold Minimum Gift Event
Mayfair House, located at
3589 and 3590 South Ocean
Boulevard, is a Palm Beach
landmark for various reasons,
not the least of which is that it
has been a flagship building
over the years in the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County/United Jewish Appeal
campaign. Residents of
Mayfair House were the first
on Palm Beach to organize a
building-oriented Federation
campaign, and they have been
at the vanguard ever since.
Thanks in large part to the
efforts of Murray Kern, who
enlisted George Howard and
Leonard Kahn in 1982,
Mayfair House has built up a
core of effective leadership
and a committee of active
This year's Mayfair House
committee members are
Nathan Berk, Harold Bloch,
Louis Kates, Murray Kern,
Bernard Rackmill, and
William Wilarsky.
Mayfair House was the first
Palm Beach building to
organize a mini-mission tour of
the four Federation-supported
local agencies, ana the
residents there inaugurated
the now-traditional Palm
Beach cocktail event, a late
afternoon cocktail reception
for building residents during
which local and overseas needs
of the Jewish community are
explained by prominent
American and Israeli
Pursuing their tradition of
staying one step ahead, the
residents I at Mayfair House
will launch the first ever
minimum-gift event for the
Palm Beach Hi-rise campaign
on Feb. 25. This will be a $180
minimum gift event featuring
a buffet and cocktail reception.
The group will be addressed by
Erwin Blonder, president of
the Jewish Federation, and
B.Z. Sobel, Dean of the Facul-
ty of Social Science at the
University of Haifa and author
of Hebrew-Chtfotianity: The

News Briefs
Murphy: Hussein Won't Move Without PLO
WASHINGTON (JTA) Assistant Secretary of State
Richard Murphy told a Congressional subcommittee last
week that while Israel and Jordan have narrowed the gap
on how to reach the negotiating table, Jordan's King Hus-
sein will not move into negotiations without "acquain-
tance" from the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Murphy, who appeared before the House Foreign Affairs
Committee's Subcommittee on Europe and the Middle
East, urged the approval of plans to sell Jordan a $1.9
billion arms package that faces continued opposition in
both Houses of Congress. A resolution passed by the House
and Senate last fall barred the sale until March 1, unless
"direct and meaningful peace negotiations between Israel
and Jordan are underway."
With the deadline approaching and Congress scheduled
for a week-long recess next month, Murphy was in Europe
recently for separate meetings with King Hussein and
Premier Shimon Peres of Israel, both of whom were there
on visits. Peres, who is facing the possibility of a change of
government in Israel, has also been pushing for a new
peace initiative.
New York Legislature Passes Resolution Con-
demning the UN Zionism Equals Racism
ALBANY, N.Y. (JTA) A resolution sponsored by
Assemblyman Arthur Kremer (D. Long Beach) unanimous-
ly condemning the 1975 United Nations resolution that
"Zionism equals racism" has been adopted by both houses
of the state legislature. New York is the second state in the
nation to adopt this resolution.
"By wrongly equating Zionism with racism, UN Resolu-
tion 3379 encouraged the expression of anti-Semitism and
is an offense to all citizens of a democratic society," said
Kremer. "In the 10 years since its passage, it has given an
unwarranted legitimacy to those who want to attack Israel
or Jews in other countries. It is time that the legislature of
the country's most important state come out forcefully
against it.'
The resolution, passed in the Senate during a special ses-
sion last month, was sponsored by Senators Manfred
Ohrenstein (D. Manhattan) and James Lack (R-C East Nor-
thport). Last year the U.S. Congress also condemned
Resolution 3379.
2 Israeli Soldiers Killed, 2 Wounded in an Am-
bush in the Jordan Valley
TEL AVIV (JTA) Two Israeli soldiers were killed
and two were wounded in a gun battle with an infiltrator in
the Jordan Valley last week. The Israelis were on a routine
patrol when they were ambushed from a dry river bed near
Mehola. The infiltrator was killed by reinforcements who
rushed to the scene. Mehola is in the West Bank.
The dead soldiers were identified as Sgt. Ronen Reichel,
20, of Holon, and Cpl. Shay Singer, 19, of Upper Nazareth.
The wounded men were helicoptered to Hadassah Hospital
in Jerusalem where their condition was reported
The infiltrator was in civilian dress jeans, a checkered
shirt, and kefiya on his head. Documents found on his body
identified him as a soldier in the Jordanian army, but Israel
Defense Force sources were not certain of their authentici-
ty. A search of the ambush area indicated the infiltrator
crossed the Jordan River near a Jordanian army post.
Maj. Gen. Ehud Barak, Commander of the central
region, told reporters later that it was too early to im-
plicate the Jordanian army in the incident or to say
whether Jordan has changed its policy of many years to
prevent incursions against Israel from Jordanian soil. He
noted that the Jordan Valley has been quiet since 1981.
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Chief of Staff Gen.
Moshe Levy visited the scene^f the clash. The Israel Air
Force attacked Palestinian terrorist bases in south
Lebanon shortly after the Jordan Valley incident, ap-
parently in response to it.
Sharon Reaches Out-of-Court Settlement with
Time Magazine
TEL AVIV (JTA) Ariel Sharon, the controversial
former Defense Minister, has reached an out-of-court set-
tlement in his libel suit against Time magazine in a Tel Aviv
district court.
The amount of the settlement was not disclosed, but according
to Israel Radio it is a very considerable sum, far in excess of the
legal expenses incurred by the Likud Minister.
Sharon, who is Minister of Commerce and Industry in the
Labor-Likud unity coalition government, said in a radio interview
that he was satisfied with the outcome of his three-year legal bat-
tle with Time. He said he regarded the settlement as a victory
for truth and freedom of expression for the press."
Brotherhood Day Observed At JCDS
What is it like to be blind or
to lose the use of your hands?
In what ways are all people dif-
ferent? How are they alike?
The children of the Jewish
Community Day School and
the four-year olds from the
Jewish Community Center
Pre-school got together on
Monday, Jan. 20 for
Brotherhood Day. They
discussed these questions and
participated in activities
together as they learned about
Each child in the upper
grades had a "little friend"
from the JCC or a young stu-
dent from the Day Schoool.
Together they learned what it
is like to be different. The
youngsters did foot painting to
learn how it feels to lose the
use of one's hands. Then their
friend was blinfolded and had
to reach a destination based on
verbal commands. The
children began to understand
the plight of the handicapped.
Teachers led discussions
about the ways in which people
are alike and how they are dif-
ferent. To coincide with Mar-
tin Luther King Jr.'s birthday
the students talked about civil
rights and equal treatment for
all people. One first grader
noted, "Everyone is the same.
Just because a person is a dif-
ferent color or can't see, he is
the same as us inside."
That's a nice lesson to learn.

attempts to reach his destination.

Peres, Kohl Establish Closer Links
Chancellor Helmut Kohl said
last week that an important
political aim of West Germany
is to help safeguard Israel's
future and maintain its viabili-
ty. He spoke at a dinner honor-
ing Israeli Premier Shimon
Peres, who wound up a three-
day visit to West Germany
with a visit to West Berlin.
Stringent security measures
were taken there.
Kohl announced earlier the
creation of a joint German-
Israeli research and develop-
ment foundation to be head-
quartered in Israel. He said
the Federal Republic would
make available 75 million
Marks (about $30 million) for
the project and the Israel
government would provide a
matching sum.
Kohl, appearing with Peres
at a press conference, said
several of his Cabinet
ministers will visit Israel
shortly to discuss details of the
enterprise. He said research in
medicine, biology and irriga-
tion will be among its major ac-
tivities. One of the aims of the
new foundation will be to
develop products and pro-
cesses based on Israel's ex-
perience in settling desert
Kohl and Peres seemed to go
out of their way to demon-
strate German-Israeli friend-
ship and minimize their dif-
ferences on political and
diplomatic issues. Peres spoke
of international terrorism, say-
ing that the European coun-
tries which have condemned
terrorism and decided not to
supply arms to Libya are on
the right track.
He said he had discussed
briefly with Kohl proposed

German arms sales to Arab
countries and stressed Israel's
opposition to arms shipments
to any country technically in a
state of war with Israel.
The German Chancellor said,
"We feel closely linked with
Israel and therefore it is our
practical duty to assist in
Israel's development ad to
stand by her. We do this in our
bilateral relationship, within
the European framework and
within the United Nations."
Speaking of the Arab-Israeli
conflict, he said the difficulty
in resolving the issue lies in
reconciling .the right of Israel
and all nations in the region to
live within recognized and
secure borders, with the right
of self-determination for the
Palestinian people. He added,
however, that the right of self-
determination for the Palesti-
nians is limited by Israel's

U.S. Jewry Has A Role In
Spain-Israel Relations
Monday, Jan. 13, my Spanish-
speaking colleague, Jacobo
Kovadloff, and I sat in the of-
fice of Ambassador Manuel
Sassot, Consul General of
Spain, discussing the status of
the much-reported plan of the
Spanish government to
establish diplomatic relations
with Israel. Now, those rela-
tions have been formally
While the conversation was
warm and friendly, we told the
Ambassador that many in the
American Jewish community
were becoming frustrated over
the repeated promises to
Jewish leaders by Spanish of-
ficials that diplomatic ties
would soon be established, but
that for more than a year
nothing has happened.
Ambassador Sassot, who
formerly directed the Middle
East desk of the Spanish
Foreign Ministry, sat back in
his chair, and declared firmly,
"I can tell you now that the
decision has been taken. I have
just spoken with our Foreign
Ministry in Madrid, and it will
happen within the next
Recently, Spain and Israel
exchanged diplomatic for-
malities in The Netherlands
when Prime Minister Felipe
Gonzalez and Premier Shimon
Peres, who are personal
friends, met in The Hague.
That development rightly
deserves to be characterized as
"historic." But there ought
not to be any euphoria, for a
rocky road lies ahead with the
Arab world. The rockier that
road becomes the more impor-
tant will be the role of
American Jewry in helping
sustain Spain's rightful
Spain has been subjected to
intense pressures from the
Arab League and its members
states threatening reprisals
were Spanish-Israeli
diplomatic accords realized.
The ugliness of that pressure
is reflected in a Spanish-
language publication issued at
the Saudi Embassy in Madrid
which declared, "Do you want
to establish relations with a
racist, fascist and terrorist
But more serious than the
propaganda warfare carried
out against Spain by Arab na-
tions is the brute fact that the
Arab world has become one of
the largest buyers of Spanish-
made weapons. In the first
three quarters of 1983, Spain
exported $2.5 billion in goods
to the Arab world while total
imports came to $5.2 billion,
mostly in oil.
Saudi Arabia currently buys
$150 million in Spanish arms
annually, and Madrid is seek-
ing to increase that to $250
million by the end of next year.
Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and
Libya are the major Arab in-
vestors in Spain, with large
holdings in real estate, hous-
ing, and tourist-related in-
dustries. Spanish exports to
Arab countries include steel,
trucks, heavy machinery,
chemicals, and increasingly,
military hardware.
In contrast, trade between
Spain and Israel is relatively
insignificant. Indeed, they are
competitors in the world
market for the sale of oranges
and other fruits and
vegetables. However,
technical and cultural ties have
been steadily increasing.
Israeli water experts have
been called into Spain's
southermost region to help
solve the crippling drought
problem there. Last year,
Iberia and El Al signed an
agreement lauching direct
flights between the two
While Felipe Gonzalez is
known to be a genuine friend
of Israel's, it is realistic to ex-
pect that Arab pressures,
especially economic leverage,
will force him continuously to
make gestures to the Arab
world. Thus, in a letter he
wrote to the Arab League on
April 25, 1985, he assured the
Arab government that not on-
ly will Spain's gesture not en-
tail support of Israel's policy,
but that it may, in fact, benefit
Arab interests.

But American Jews have an
important role to play in help-
ing counterbalance these in-
evitable Arab pressures
against Spain in the months
ahead. Spain has gone through
a decade of industrial crisis as
a result of the 1973 OPEC-
induced oil crisis. The official
unemployment rate is around
2.9 million, or almost 22 per-
cent of the available work
force, the highest rate in
Western Europe.
While Gonzalez's govern-
ment has made significant
strides in lowering inflation
and the trade deficit, Spain is
in urgent need of major in-
vestments in industry and
technology, as well as in in-
creased trade and commerce.
As is the case with West and
East European governments
which have sought American
understanding and support,
Spain very much needs the
sympathetic interest of
American Jews in helping to

Fueling The Fire
Saudi Arabia's outspoken support for Libya's Colonel
Qaddafi does not seem to have cost it any friends in the
State and Defense Departments. It seems hardly to matter
that King Fahd reportedly told Qaddafi that Riyadh would
back Libya in any showdown with the United States. Nor is
there any apparent outrage over Saudi sponsoring of anti-
American (pro-Qaddafi) resolutions at both the Arab
League foreign ministers' meeting and the Islamic
The only thing that matters the only thing that ever
seems to matter is Saudi wealth. That wealth goes, in
part, to support PLO terrorists. But even more of it is
strategically invested throughout the West in general and
the United States in particular. For much of official
Washington, that wealth and those investments speak con-
siderably louder than Saudi backing for Qaddafi and the
PLO. Petrodollars have bought respectability in
Washington in very much the way that Libyan investments
in Italy have nought Italy's long-standing silence in the face
of Arab-backed terror. Money still talks, and loudly.
That is why few people in Washington are really surpris-
ed at the Reagan Administration's apparent decision to sell
another $1 billion in sophisticated weapons to our Saudi
"friends." According to press reports, President Reagan
will soon be proposing an arms package which will include
1,600 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, 800 Stinger anti-
aircraft missiles, 95 Electronic Countermeasure Systems
for F-5's and F-15's, and upgrade kits for 60 F-15's.
The decision to sell new arms to the Saudis contradicts a
pledge the Reagan Administration made during the
AW ACS battle of 1981. At that time, President Reagan
promised (in a letter to then-Senate Majority Leader
Howard Baker) that future arms transfers to Riyadh would
only take place if there had been "significant progress"
toward Middle East peace "with the substantial assistance
of Saudi Arabia."
You don't have to be an expert on the Middle East to
know that Saudi Arabia has done nothing but obstruct the
peace process. It funds the PLO and offers support to Qad-
dafi. Perhaps even more sign if cant has been the Saudi role
in ostracizing Egypt for making peace with Israel and its
continuing effort to keep King Hussein away from the
peace table.
Saudi Arabia's opposition to peace with Israel has been a
consistent one. Even King Fahd, not known for his radical
rhetoric, has promised that "the day will come when Israel
will be finally liquidated." Last February, he said that
"armed confrontation against Israel" remains "an existing
So why is the Administration proposing to sell arms to a
nation that could very well use them against our ally,
Israel? The answer again lies with Saudi economic power.
Appreasing the wealthy Saudis is one of the few
Washington practices that is bipartisan. President Carter
sold them F-15's and said that those planes would somehow
entice the Saudis into the peace process. President Reagan
sold them AW ACS and put his promise about Riyadh's
future good behavior into writing.
None of this changed Saudi behavior at all. Nor will a
new Saudi sale. All more arms will accomplish is to help ad-
vance the day when the Saudis can transform the rhetoric
of jihad into its reality. _______________

As the Congressional budget-

Dear Helen Thomas:
At his Jan. 8 press con-
ference, you asked President
Reagan whether Israel would
accept the existence of the
Palestinians. An important
question but you transposed
the subject and the object.
As a veteran White House
corespondent, you must know
that the 40 years of Middle
East problems you mentioned
stem from the refusal of most
Arab states and the
organization which claims to
represent the Palestinian
Arabs, the PLO to accept
the existence of Israel. When
Egypt finally broke the solid
wall of Arab rejectionism and
signed a peace treaty with
Israel in 1979, the other 21
members of the Arab League
expelled it, and they have not
yet readmitted it.
The Arab refusal to accept
Israel has been clear and con-
sistent. In 1948, a day after
the Jewish state was proclaim-
ed in accordance with UN
resolutions, the Secretary
General of the Arab League
said as five Arab armies in-
vaded Israel "this will be a
war of extermination and a
momentous massacre ..."
With the exception of Egypt,
not much has changed. PLO
Chairman Yasir Arafat
asserted just three years ago
that "it is in my interest to
have a war in the region,
because I believe that the only
remedy for the ills of the Arab
nation is a true war against the
Zionist entity."
Perhaps you forgot that the
PLO was formed in 1964 not
by Palestinian Arabs on the
West Bank and Gaza but by
Arab states. Its mission was
not to "liberate" the West
Bank and Gaza, then occupied
by Jordan and Egypt respec-
tively, but to conduct ter-
rorism against the Jews in Tel
Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem. To
this day the PLO boasts of
"operations" terrorism -
against men, women and
children in "occupied
Palestine," meaning Jewish
towns like Ashdod, Afula and
Kiryat Shemona. That doesn't
sound like acceptance to me.
Ms. Thomas, you asked the
President how the Palestinians
should attain their "legitimate
rights" and "how do they rid
themselves of foreign occupa-
tion? Should they emulate the
U.S.-backed freedom fighters
in Afghanistan, the contras in
No doubt inadvertently, you
insulted freedom fighters
everywhere by the implied
analogy to the PLO. The
Afghan mujahedin do not, as
policy, shoot up buses full of
civilians in the Soviet Union as
part of their fight, as the PLO
does in Israel.
Although evidence on the
contras may be a bit murkier,
apparently they too do not
make it a rule of struggle to
knife cab drivers in the back,
as the PLO does in Israel.
When the Hungarians -
who popularized the term
"freedom fighter" bravely
took on the Russians in 1956,
they fought as guerrillas and
citizen-soldiers against a col-
onial army, not as gangsters

Ten Years Of Slurs
It is ten years since the
United Nations passed Resolu-
tion 3379, which condemned
Zionism as a form of racism.
Conventional wisdom has it
that the UN is a debating
society whose resolutions are
not to be taken seriously, but
the reality is far more com-
plex. The resolution has had an
impact, and enough time has
passed for an accurate
The Equation of Zionism
with racism was intended to
delegitimize Israel and
stigmatize Jews who sup-
ported it. It has been effective
in the Soviet Union, where
newspapers constantly iden-
tify Zionism with Nazism. The
resolution gave the Soviets a
new weapon with which to
discourage Russian Jews from
applying for exit visas to
But in the United States,
Resolution 3379 helped
Americans face the fact that
the United Nations, as
presently constituted, is utter-
ly without moral seriousness.
The event helped pave the way
for a reappraisal of American
involvement in such UN
organs as the International
Labor Organization and
The UN Resolution has
singled out for condemnation
one particular form of na-
tionalism, Jewish nationalism,
from all others. It reminded
Jews of the days when Hitler
had singled them out, first for
abuse, then for genocide, while
the rest of the world abandon-
ed them.
Modern Zionism, though
rooted in a religious tradition,
began as a political movement
to establish a national
homeland for the Jews. But
the overtones transcend or-
dinary politics. The State of
Israel was established only
three years after the
Holocaust, and so it came to be
seen as an affirmation of
Jewish life in the face of death.
Even secular Jews saw in it a
kind of national Jewish resur-
rection. Jews, more than most
others, have suffered from
racism, and so its identifica-
tion with Zionism was par-
ticularly galling.
Israelis, having been vilified
by Arabs for decades before
the resolution was passed,
took little notice of the resolu-
tion; their most eloquent
response came years later,
when they air-lifted thousands
of black Ethiopian Jews to
The Most Devastating effect

BONN (JTA) Premier
Shimon Peres of Israel laid a
wreath at the Jewish memorial
monument on the site of the
Bergen-Belsen concentration
camp near Hannover last
week. A cantor recited Kad-
dish, the prayer for the dead.
The Israeli leader visited the
documentation center where
he examined photographs and
fragments of literature at-
testing to the atrocities com-
mitted there more than 40
years ago.
Peres walked along the rows
of deserted barracks, vestigial
remains of the Holocaust. He
said little. He was visibly mov-
ed and fought to hold back
tears. At least 20 members of
his family were among the
hundreds of thousands of Jews
and others who perished at
Peres' visit to the site was
described as private,
something quite apart from
the political and economic
aspects of his official three-day
visit to West Germany.
Although he was accom-
panied by a ranking politician,
Prime Minister Hans Albrecht
of the federal state of Lower
Saxony, on his tour of Bergen-
Belsen, their conversation con-
cerned the past and plans to
expand the documentation
center into a research and
educational facility that will
serve as a meeting place for
German youth, the post-war
generation with no memories
of the Third Reich.
Peres said after the visit that
he went to Bergen-Belsen in
part to promote understanding
and reconciliation with the
German people. He spoke of
the new democratic Germany
with which Israel wants to
establish cooperation and pro-
mote understanding.
The Israeli Premier said he
was primarily interested in
launching a dialogue but this
could not be done unless
memories of the past are kept
alive. In an interview with the
German newspaper Bild,
Peres said of the Holocaust
that Israelis and Jews all over
the world "cannot forget or let
this be forgotten." He added
that "a new Germany has
arisen from that hell and that
gives me reason for hope."
Peres also met with Ger-
many's Foreign Minister
Hans-Dietrich Genscher. He
postponed his other official
meetings until after the visit to
Bergen-Belsen. But he hosted
a breakfast for West German
Jewish leaders at the Schloss
Giemnich near Bonn, the of-
ficial residence for guests of
the government.
In addition, Peres was
greeted by Chancellor Helmut
Kohl and the two reviewed a
military guard of honor out-
side the Chancellor's office. A
military band played the
Israeli and German national
anthems and the two leaders
met privately for half an hour.
German sources said Peres'
talk with Genscher was focus-
ed largely on Bonn's reluc-
tance to join the American-
imposed sanctions against
Libya, which the U.S. insists
was behind the terrorist at-
tacks on the Rome and Vienna
airports last Dec. 27. Genscher
reported on tneir meeting to
his colleagues of the European
Economic Community (EEC).
Peres said in a newspaper in-
terview that he failed to
understand why Europeans
fight terrorism in their own
countries but refuse to join the
battle against international

Hadassah Helps Integrate
Ethiopians Into
Modern Industrial State
Last year the world's eyes
were turned to the dramatic
airlift of 13,000 persecuted
Jews from drought-stricken
Ethiopia to the modern State
of Israel. This year the eyes of
leaders around the world are
on Hadassah's pioneer Health
Education program for Ethio-
pian youth that many hope will
provide the answers to the
special problems faced in in-
tegrating a pre-industrial,
almost pre-biblical civilization
as full citizens of a westerniz-
ed, technological land.
Hadassah commissioned Dr.
Emanuel Chigier, director of
Medical and Psycho-Social
Services of the Youth Aliyah
Agency, to create a multi-
disciplinary team to find new
approaches to the Ethiopian's
integration when traditional
programs used for absorption
were not adequate. Each of
the specialists in adolescent
and pediatric medicine, den-
tistry, health education nurs-
ing, social work and
psychology had found that,
unlike emigrants from the
western or Arab nations, the
total Ethiopian experience was
foreign to the culture of an in-
dustrialized, democratic state.
The newest emigres, often*
severed from family and
friends, had no cognitive or ex-
periential context in which to
place the concepts of medicine,
dentistry, hygiene, nutrition
and society that they needed to
Drugs and medicine were
new to them. So were toilets
and water taps, They'd rarely
eaten meat, let alone Kosher
Big Macs. And few had
cavities because they didn't
have sugar. But the biggest
changes were the Western
concepts of individualization
and differing opinions. Used to
the extended patriarchies of
their subsistence-level outcast
farming villages, where the
law was the oral tradition of
village elder and Torah, the
Ethiopians were not prepared
for the individual respon-
sibilities and the choices the
Western world entail. Nor
were their Israeli hosts
prepared for their unique
The program started with a
series of conferences last spr-
ing promoting the view that
any absorption plan would con-
tinue to fail unless based on an
anthropological approach. On-
ly by seeking to begin to
understand the radical dif-
ference of Ethiopian cognitive
reality could the basics of the
integration process take hold.
The result was the pilot pro-
gram for health education that
will travel to the Youth Aliyah
villages and centers where
2,100 young Ethiopians live or
study. The program is based
on anthropolitical data con-
tributed from the experts who
have been working with the
Ethiopian community and with
Ethiopians who emigrated to
Israel. Working every step of
the way with the team, they
have designed a program that
is non-judgmental, pragmatic
and geared to special dif-
ficulties in their reaction to
change while their basic
premise is that Israel is not
"better,"nor Ethiopia
"primitive;" there is a need for
healthy understanding and
changes in valid behavior to
adapt to the world in which
they now live.
Out of this premise the team
developed five health educa-
tion units dealing with
menstrual hygiene, fertiliza-
tion, sexual behavior in a per-
missive society, mental health
(isolation, cultural differences,
peer pressure) and drugs and
medicine. Hadassah health
education team members are
already traveling to Youth
Aliyah villages to train onsite
nurses and house staff to take
charge of new units. In the
spring a second phase of the
program, a health education
van purchased, equipped
and staffed by contributions
from Hadassah chapters will
begin traveling from center to
center to continue training and
supervision and present new
units as they are developed
and amended.
Obviously, the results are
not yet in. But to countries all
over the world, who are now
faced with integrating large
numbers of alien cultures, the
initial efforts of the Hadassah-
convened team has proved in-
valuable in defining the issues
and questions that vitally need
to be addressed.

I Thanks To U.S. Jews
Project Renewal Is Working
UJA Watch Desk Editor
(Third in a UJA Watch Desk
Series on Project Renewal)
Most visitors to this town of
14,000, 50 miles north of
Jerusalem, come to see ruins
of a Roman amphitheater.
They learn how Philistines
locally displayed the
desecrated body of the slain
King Saul. And they hear from
guides how PLO fighters used
to shell Bet Shean from Jor-
dan, seven miles to the east.
But the Los Angeles Jewish
community knows that today
the real story, and main
enemy, in Bet Shean is
unemployment. And, through
the United Jewish Ap-
peal/Federation's Project
Renewal Campaign, they are
doing something about it.
Even when unemployment
was low nationally, just four
percent two years ago, it was
high here and in all Renewal
Neighborhoods. Now that
Israeli unemployment has
doubled, and will likely in-
crease, it is 16.6 percent in Bet
Shean. That means 753
workers here have no jobs.
L.A. Jews could have rested
on their laurels, but didn't.
Since 1979, when Renewal
began, they met a separate
$3.5-million goal for Musrara
near Jerusalem. But they also
raised $2.8-million for Bet
Shean constructing and
staffing a child development
center, providing programs
for all segments of the local
population, and beginning to
build a community center. This
year they are contributing
$400,000, a sum in effect mat-
ched by the Israeli govern-
ment. And they are stepping
up their drive to reach their
$5.5 million goal for Bet
Here are the additional pro-
UJA's '85 Cash Collections
Top $400 Million
United Jewish Appeal has col-
lected $400.8 million for 1985,
the largest cash collection of
any peacetime year in UJA
history, according to a special
announcement by UJA na-
tional chairman Alex Grass.
Calling the record cash col-
lection "a magnificent achieve-
ment," Grass added that "it
was a landmark year made
even more extraordinary by
the fact that the vast majority
of communities throughout the
country exceeded their 1984
cash remittances. "Further-
more," said Grass, "this is on-
ly a part of what was collected,
since millions of dollars were
utilized for urgent local com-
munity needs."
In citing cash highlights,
Grass mentioned that on Dec.
31, the UJA received $36.4
million in cash, the largest
amoung ever received on any
December 31 since the
establishment of the UJA in
1939. In December, 1985 $90.2
million was collected, the se-
cond highest amount ever
received in any December.
(Operation Moses was respon-
sible for the higher total
amount of $101.2 million
received in December, 1984.)
Grass paid special tribute to
Bernie Borine, the UJA's na-
tional cash chairman, for his
"innovative leadership and
dedication in seeing a complex
task through to a successful
While noting that the final
surge of money coming in has
prevented seriously threaten-
ed cutbacks in UJA lifesaving
programs, Grass emphasized
that the same level of collec-
tion intensity is required at the
same time the '86 Campaign
increases its momentum.

promote increased commerical
ties between the United States
and Spain.
Spanish Embassy officials
have freely volunteered that
American tourism is one of the
largest producers of much-
needed foreign currency, and
they are aware that American
Jews are among the largest
groups of tourists to Spain.
Beyond the natural interest
of American Jews in wanting
to assure the strengthening of
Spanish-Israeli diplomatic and
other human contacts, Jews
have a profound interest as
Americans in helping sustain
the democratic institutions
and values that have emerged
out of the darkness of Franco
Spain just some 12 years ago.
Those democratic com-
mitments, as well as Spain's
recent firm opposition to ter-
rorism, deserve to place Spain
high on the foreign policy
agenda of American Jewry.

curtail local unemployment:
Vocational education, to
retrain workers and to con-
vince employers to remain in
the town
Business skills, to help
mom-and-pop stores survive
adverse effects of national
Counseling aid, to assist
youngsters about to enter the
work force.
Additionally, L.A.
businessmen visit here often
and provide ideas.
Bet Shean's population had
been declining since the late
1970's when the spinning mill
and other key local factories
began to close, but it has
stabilized now, instilling hope.
No longer do youngsters
automatically leave to compete
for jobs in Tel Aviv, 75 miles
southeast of here, as soon as
they are able to do so. Yet,
problems remain.
"I am tempted to see the en-
tire budget spent in the jobs
area," Ami Shmuel, Bet
Shean's on-site renewal
manager told UJA Watch
Desk. "But the elderly, small
children and others need our
help too. In the long term, we
need a competent work force
and profitable industry and
services to finance our pro-
grams. In the short term, we
need local economic develop-
ment and provision for current
social needs."
David Gill, the L.A. Federa-
tion's project Renewal chair-
man said, "We've helped a lot,
but we're not finished yet."
Bet Shean is just one
Renewal success story in pro-
gress. Neve Israel and Shaviv,
Herzylia, are others. Jews
have provided $5.2-million
toward an $8-million goal,
through the Combined Jewish
Philanthropies of Greater
Boston. Facilities and services
have improved and the
neighborhoods' population
flow to Tel Aviv has ended.
And in Gil Amal and Giora,
inland from Herzylia, the talk
of the town is education

Daimler-Benz Commissions Study of Its War-

BONN (JTA) The Daimler-Benz A.G., the
Stuttgart-based automobile giant which manufactures the
prestigious Mercedes, has commissioned an independent
study of the company's history which includes the utiliza-
tion of slave labor during the Nazi era.
A company spokesman has told reporters that the study
may leaa to the payment of reparations to surviving slave
laborers, many of whom are Jews, or to their families. He
said the company expects to have a full account of the mat-
ter sometime next fall and will decide then how to proceed.
He stressed that the question of reparations will not be
limited to the legal aspects.
According to Hans Pohl, an advisor to the Society for
Business History, Daimler-Benz used POWs and concen-
tration camp inmates to expedite military production after
the start of World War II.
According to his preliminary study, about 20,000 slave
laborers from 20 Nazi-occupied countries were forced to
work for Daimler-Benz at its various plants.

Women's Division $365 Event
Speakers Will Explore Images
Of Contemporary Jewish Women
Friday, February 7, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 11
Deborah Schwarzberg and
Marcia Shapiro, co-chairs of
the Women's Division $365
minimum commitment event
at the Garden Club in Palm
Beach on March 6, have an-
nounced that the featured
speakers at the luncheon in
support of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach Coun-
ty/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign will be Kylene Barker
Brandon, former Miss
America, author and fashion
consultant, and Carol Effrat,
Florida regional director
United Jewish Appeal.
"Since our theme for the
luncheon will be 'Images of
Contemporary Jewish
Women,' our distinguished
speakers will focus on the im-
age projected by Jewish
women today," said Mrs.
"Ms. Barker Brandon will
discuss the changing image of
women in our culture, par-
ticularly as it is manifested in
terms of dress and ap-
pearance," added Mrs.
Shapiro. "Mrs. Effrat will
complement that view with a
presentation on the self-image
of today's Jewish woman, so
that the 'outer' and 'inner'
aspects are fully explored."
"Ultimately," Schwarzberg
concluded, "we'll be in-
vestigating how Jewish
women today express
themselves as individuals and
as Jews. We're expecting an
Nine More Jewish Activists Found Guilty X
Judge Accepts Written Testimony From Witnesses
Nine Soviet Jewry activists,
including a Soviet Jewish
emigre who became a
naturalized U.S. citizen last
fall, were found guilty of con-
ducting an illegal demonstra-
tion in front of the Soviet Em-
bassy here.
But for the first time since
the District of Columbia court
began trying the groups of ac-
tivists arrested at seven Soviet
Jewry demonstrations since
last May, the judge admitted a
lengthy written account of
what the proposed witnesses
would have said in their*
testimony about the persecu-
tion of Jews in the Soviet
In an unprecedented move in
the Soviet Jewry protest hear-
ings, the judge also agreed to
postpone the probation
sentences of the defendants
pending appeal.
Most of the nine convicted
were attending a conference of
the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews when they were
arrested at a rally in front of
the Soviet Embassy last Oc-
tober. One hundred and thirty-
two people have been arrested
in Soviet Jewry demonstra-
tions at the Embassy since last
spring for violating a local
statute that bans demonstra-
tions within 500 feet of an
Like all but one of over 50
activists convicted to date
including primarily rabbis, but
also a Lutheran minister, can-
tors and Jewish lay leaders
the latest group was given a
15-day suspended sentence,
sue months usupervised proba-
tion and a $50 fine. Last
December, five of the rabbis
decided to go to jail rather
than accept the probation
sentence, as a way of
dramatizing the Soviet Jewry
issue. They were released
after 12 days, three days short
of their actual sentence.
The attorney for the group,
Seth Waxman, attempted, as
did those representing the
earlier groups, to plead the
case by demonstrating that
persecution of Jews in the
Soviet Union is so severe and
their situation consequently so
critical that the demonstration
was perceived by the activists
as necessary to save Russian
Jews from further harm. In a
lengthy statement, he cited
State Department reports on
Soviet rights violations and
Although the iudge, Joseph
Hannon, refused to hear the
proposed defense and conse-
quently ruled out testimony
from witnesses about Soviet
persecution of Jews, he ac-
cepted a written account of

said had they been allowed to

teacher in the Soviet Union
and principal of a secret
Hebrew school. He has lived in
Boston since he was allowed to
emigrate five years ago.
One of those convicted most
recently, Rusty Frank, a
Soviet Jewry activist in San
Francisco, considered going to
prison rather than accept the
probation sentence. But in
consultations with Waxman,
Hannon urged her not to force
him to hand down a jail
sentence, which he said he
would postpone in any case.
In deciding to postpone the
probation sentence, Hannon
said that although he could not
prophesy what the outcome of
the group's appeal would be,
the statement submitted by
Waxman was "indeed a
remarkable record," and he
suggested that the case might
have sufficient merit to win an
Kylene Barker Brandon
outstanding response to what
will certainly be an enlighten-
ing luncheon event."
Kylene Barker Brandon won
the title of Miss American in
1979 and during her reign
traveled over 350,000 miles,
pearing on several television
ows and touring Germany
and Iceland with the USO.
Having earned a degree in
apparel design and fashion
merchandising, Ms. Brandon
is a dominant force in the
fitness, fashion and beauty
fields. In addition to her
responsibility as an image con-
sultant for Clairol, she owns
and operates d. Kylene, Inc., a
fashion boutique on Worth
Avenue in Palm Beach.
The former Miss America,
who believes that fitness,
fashion and beauty go hand-in-
hand, is also the author of
Southern Beauty, and she
recently signed a contract as
fashion consultant for NBC's
Today Show.
Carol Effrat's numerous ac-
complishments in the realm of
Jewish communal service
began with work at the Jewish
Community Center in Plain-
field, N.J. and a position as
assistant director of the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation at
Boston University.
Mrs. Effrat has also served
Carol Effrat
as executive director of two
Jewish Federations, one in
Danbury, Connecticut and
another in Orange County,
In addition to her respon-
sibilities as UJA Florida
regional director, Mrs. Effrat
serves as a national consultant
to the United Jewish Appeal,
and she has assisted the
United States government as a
human relations consultant.
Mrs. Effrat received a
Jewish education from Gratz
High School in Philadelphia
and attended Boston Universi-
ty, the University of Penn-
sylvania, and the Hebrew
Teacher's College in Boston.
Mrs. Effrat has expressed
the belief that the inner image
Jewish women have of
themselves is largely derived
from their strong commitment
to Jewish values and to their
fellow Jews.

fit Praise Of Jewish Values
!uomo Keynotes JTS Centennial
Peppering his remarks with
musing anecdotes from his
outhful days in Jamaica,
eens, New York Governor
ario Cuomo addressed a
arge gathering at the
reakers on Sunday, Jan. 26,
uring a Centennial Luncheon
arking the 100th anniversary
f the Jewish Theological
eminary of America.
Prior to Gov. Cuomo's ad-
dress, Ruth and H. Bert Mack,
long-time and devoted
benefactors of the Seminary,
received a Centennial Medal
for their unique love and devo-
tion to Judaism and Jewish
causes. The medals were
presented to the Macks by Dr.
Gerson Cohen, Seminary
Cuomo began by praising the
Macks for so generously shar-
ing their good fortune and by
praising the Jewish
Theological Seminary for its
"In the realm of politics,"
Cuomo asserted, J,it is rare to
find such a small core of people
so loyal to their
Describing himself as a
"Shabbas goy" who grew up in
the "polyglot mosaic" of
Jamaica Queens, Cuomo spoke
nostalgically of amicable
ethnic interrelationships.*
"Mrs. Kessler taught my
mother how to count," Cuomo
remembered, "and my mother
taught Mrs. Kessler how to
make tomato sauce without
the pork."
Recalling fondly how he
would often run errands for
observant Jewish neighbors on
Friday nights and Saturdays,
Cuomo described the "sweet
confusion" of hearing can-
torial chants from the
Synagogue on the corner and
the Gregorian chants at Mass
on Sunday.
"On Friday nights, I heard
Hebrew I didn't understand
and on Sundays I listened to
Latin I didn't understand,"
Cuomo remembered.
"Growing up where and
when I did," he continued,
"helped me to understand the
shared truths that unite us
(Catholics and Jews), that
make our destiny one."
Cuomo then repeated a story
about the first Greek transla-
tion of the Old Testament, told
him by a rabbi friend.
"The Septuagent was
prepared by 70 Jewish sages
sequestered in separate
rooms," Cuomo said. "When
they finished, all the transla-
tions were exactly the same,
and the King proclaimed a
miracle. But a Jewish servant,
with tongue in cheek, said that
a truer miracle would've oc-
curred if the 70 had worked
together and come out with the
same thing."
Cuomo said that the Jewish
Theological Seminary
"represents the legacy of
Jewish facts and culture, and
he applauded the "vibrant
diversity and intellectual
richness of Jewish life," citing
the Seminary's biggest
achievement as an "adherence
to Jewish life that transcends
any and all differences."
Noting that he spoke with
both a sense of privilege and a
sense of urgency, Cuomo cited
"two central Jewish ethical
values which have lately come
under attack."
"Firstly," he said, "there
has been an attack on the ethic
rbolized by the Macks, one
has been precious for over
5,000 years, the injunction to
Claiming that "the compas-
sionate heart of our civilization
is a gift from Judaism,"
Cuomo went on to say that
"Jews have always been a peo-
ple with a passion for justice.
They have relieved suffering,
stood against injustice and
have always been present at
the forefront of labor
movements, struggles for civil
rights, educational reform,
and social justice."
However, Cuomo noted that
recent trends in political and
popular thinking reject these
altruistic views.
"Today, there is a strong
and prevalent view that
government should now aban-
don this ethic," he said. "It's
hard for me to understand how
this refusal to care for one
another could prevail, but let's
look at the facts."
For Mario Cuomo, the facts
include eight million
Americans out of work and 33
million poor, including one out
of every two black children
under six years old.
Cuomo claimed that there
are presently "more homeless
in this country than at any
time since the Depression.
Social Darwinism threatens to
replace Jewish values."
The other ethical precept
coming under attack, accor-
ding to Cuomo, is "our social
commitment to toleration, to
respecting differences. Jews
have placed a special value on
toleration; they know that
racial epithets, for instance,
aren't just words."
At the international level,
Cuomo said, "the problem of
intolerance rages, especially
for the Jews."
Recalling the Holocaust,
Cuomo declared, "Forty years
ago, we prayed that anti-
Semitism had come to its last
awful conclusion. After
Auschwitz, who could believe
the lies that led to such
unspeakable inhumanity?"
Yet, the lies continue to be
spoken, said Cuomo, especially
in the Soviet Union and at the
United Nations.
"The enemies of Israel and
the Jewish people have
repackaged their propagan-
da," he observed ."Hatred for
Jews has become anti-Zionism,
but there is no difference bet-
ween anti-Zionism and anti-
Semitism. In each case, Jews
are accused of being Jews."
In the face of such virulent
attacks on traditional Jewish
values, Cuomo sees two possi-
ble reactions.
"We can ignore it," he ad-
mitted. "But to do this would
be to turn our backs on both
the Jewish and Christian
The other alternative,
Cuomo said, is "to resist,
vocally and consistently,
whenever and wherever
"We can do it together," the
Governor said optimistically,
"as believers in human com-
passion and with a common
faith that tzedakah and
tolerance represent G-d's
wishes for humanity."
Cuomo closed his remarks by
drawing an analogy between
the Jewish Theological
Seminary and the Jewish peo-
ple as a whole.
"In both," said Cuomo, "we
see the quiet, spiritual and
moral force that never sleeps
and does not permit others to
"May the Jewish Theological
Seminary continue its sacred
work," he concluded.

Old and New Battles In Congress
Continued from Page 4
it received last October when
the U.S. turned over a $1.2
billion economic assistance
package approved by Congress
for fiscal year 1986.
The amount represents the
4.3 percent that the govern-
ment will have to trim from
U.S. foreign aid programs for
every recipient country when
automatic spending cuts go in-
to effect in March. Unlike
other countries receiving U.S.
aid, Israel was awarded the en-
tire amount in a lump sum at
the beginning of the fiscal
Another slice out of the
Israel aid package approved by
Congress for the current fiscal
year will almost certainly be
taken in March, with Israel's
$1.8 billion package of military
aid laid out on the chopping
board together with security
assistance programs to other
Israel has not yet received
the bulk of its military grant
and the Reagan Administra-
tion has said that all fiscal year
1986 military aid will be cut,
including that of Israel.
What happens to Israel aid
for fiscal year 1987 appears to
be anybody's guess. The Presi-
dent is expected to present his
budget to Congress next
month, and his resistance to
raising taxes suggests that the
entire amount required by the
Gramm-Rudman law to be cut
from the federal deficit over
$50 billion for 1987 will be
trimmed from the budget.
But protests are already be-
ing heard from Congress that
more of the brunt should be
borne by the military sector
while new revenue-raising
strategies are adopted to save
some needed programs. If the
White House and Congress
can't agree, new automatic
cuts could resolve the issue
next fall.
In the meantime, Israel has
requested about the same
amount in aid for 1987 that it
was awarded for this fiscal
year $1.2 billion in economic
assistance and $1.9 billion in
military grants. The request
for military aid represents a
$100 million increase over the
fiscal year 1986 level.
Sounding out the Israel Em-
bassy for expectations about
U.S. aid for Israel in fiscal year
1986 evoked expressions of
cautious optimism from its
Economic Affairs Minister,
Dan Halperin, that the White
House will seek an aid package
from Congress at approx-
imately or slightly less than
the levels requested. Others
are less sanguine about how
pernicious the Gramm-
Rudman knife might prove to
Another charged issue cer-
tain to come up within the next
few weeks the Administra-
tion's proposed arms sale to
Jordan appears to be facing
a swift and almost pre-
determined outcome.
The plan to sell Jordan a $1.9
billion package of
sophisticated American
weapons, including 40 advanc-
ed fighters (F-16s or F-20s),
108 Stinger surface-to-air
missiles and 12 improved
Hawk surface-to-air missile
units will, by all indications, be
overwhelmingly reiected and
the expected Presidential veto
overriden, according to a staff
member at the office of Sen.
Richard Lugar (R. 111.). Lugar
is chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.
Unless the Administration
opts to back down or to seek
some sort of new compromise,
the aide said, the President
might well face a humiliating
defeat on the issue a defeat
that senior Republican leaders
had earlier sought to avoid.
The Jordan arms sale was
temporarily put aside last fall
as part of a compromise bet-
ween staunch opponents of the
bill and those who hoped to
avert an embarrassment to
President Reagan in the face
of overwhelming Congres-
sional opposition to the sale.
A resolution passed by both
Houses prohibited the Presi-
dent from selling the proposed
arms package until March 1,
unless "direct and meaningful
peace negotiations between
Israel and Jordan are
In a recent press briefing,
however, Lugar said that the
"faltering" Middle East peace
process would result in the in-
troduction of a disapproval bill
well before the March deadline
and probably soon after the
resumption of Congress last
week. He said the Foreign
Relations Committee would
hold a hearing on the peace
process almost immediately
after the recess.
Lugar and Senate Majority
Leader Robert Dole (R. Kans.)
are currently seeking support
for a resolution that would ex-
tend the March deadline,
allowing the White House to
buy some more time while it
works to push the peace pro-
cess ahead.
The Administration's deci-
sion to send Assistant
Secretary of State Richard
Murphy to Europe three
weeks ago for separate
meetings with King Hussein of
Jordan and Israeli Prime
Minister Shimon Peres has
been interpreted in part as a
final attempt to avert a Con-
gressional resolution blocking
the arms sale by
demonstrating some progress
toward peace talks.
Even if Murphy brings back
with him some new evidence of
movement, however, it would
have to be substantial to
change minds in Congress,
especially in light of the
budget worries on post
Gramm-Rudman Capitol Hill.
In testimony before the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee last fall, Secretary
of State George Shultz
acknowledged that the U.S.
would probably be asked to
foot most of the bill for the
arms package to Jordan.
In any case, Murphy is
already reported to be warn-
ing from Europe that no
"dramatic" breakthroughs
should be expected from his
Meanwhile, some members
of Congress have already
begun gearing up for another
battle over arms to the Middle
East a battle that the Ad-
ministration has not yet of-
ficially launched.
A new "Dear Colleague" let-
ter that began circulating in
the House during the winter
recess says the Administration
is trying to sell Saudi Arabia
$1 billion arms package that
includes Sidewinder missiles,
Stinger missiles and laun-
chers, Blackhawk helicopters,
Harpoon missiles, and elec-
tronic components to enhance
the offensive capability of
Saudi fighter aircraft.
The letter, circulated during
the recess with 12 signatures,
seeks co-sponsors on a resolu-
tion to reject the sale should
the President notify Congress
of his intent to go ahead with
the proposed package.
In the Senate, Alan
Cranston (D., Calif.) announc-
ed earlier this month that he
would lead the opposition to
the Administration's still unof-
ficial proposal, charging that
the Saudis are actively giving
aid and comfort to Libya while
they continue to bankroll Syria
and the PLO. Cranston called
on the Reagan Administration
to abandon plans to provide
the Saudi kingdom with addi-
tional American arms.
Also on the foreign affairs
agenda is a 37-year-old inter-
national agreement that Jews
and others would like to see
the Senate finally give its

tion Outlawing Genocide was

But this time it appears that
Hecht will be taking the lead in
blocking ratification, with
vigorous support from Helms.
Hecht had a "heated ex-
change" with Sen. Howard
Metzenbaum (D. Ohio), in
which the Nevada Senator said
he would bring strong
documentation to the Senate
President except Eisenhower, floor supporting his claim that
But conservative opposition,
most recently led by Sen. Jesse
Helms (RNC), has blocked
ratification of the treaty, con-
tending it would compromise
U.S. sovereignty. Helms voted
in favor of the ratification bill
approved by the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee
last spring, after reservations
were included that addressed
some of his long-standing con-
cerns. But when Dole tried to
bring it to a vote at the end of
last session, Helms turned
around and blocked it again.
Dole has since made clear
that he would make every at-
tempt to get the bill on to the
floor early in this session, in
spite of a feared filibuster led
by Helms and Sen. Chic Hecht,
a conservative Jewish
Republican from Nevada with
whom Helms recently visited
the Convention could be used
against Israel, according to a
staff member at Hecht's office.
Israel is a signatory to the
genocide treaty, and Jewish
groups have long been urging
its ratification. Some
Republicans who supported
the reservations endorsed by
the Administration and which
is now attached to the ratifica-
tion bill, appear confident that
a conservative filibuster can be
overcome as long as no similar
attempt to block a vote comes
from liberal Democrats who
maintain that the reservations
have watered down the spirit
of the treaty.
But an aide in Lugar's office
said he thought it unlikely that
supporters of the treaty would
permit another delay by oppos-
ing the reservations.

It is only available to members of the American Jewish Congress.
Since we inaugurated our International Travel Program in 1958, some
350,000 members have participated in our tours to Israel, as well as to
40 countries on six continents. Tours which have earned the reputation
of being, quite simply, the best there are.
What is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive for the creation of a
Jewish homeland in Palestine; to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
Jews throughout the rest of the world.
That was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
of Israel is unqualified and fundamental. We have been, and remain, an
integral part of the Mid-East peace process. At home, we are not afraid
to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
the courts and out, all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
What does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration of our concern for, and interest in, world Jewry would be to give
our membership the opportunity of traveling to Israel and many other
countries with Jewish communities. Since then, we have become the
world's largest Jewish travel program.
What is so special about traveling with AJCongress?
Our tours are renowned for excellence, sophisrication, innovation,
style and unrivaled value. Our members travel together, never with com-
mercial tour groups. Everywhere we go, we arrange unusual and special
events, briefings on local Jewish life, meetings with Jewish communities
plus visits to each country's most popular sites and attractions.

Our thanks to the talented
Mandolin Ensemble of Cen-
tury Village, who performed at
the Jewish Community
Center's Kosher menu pro-
gram on Monday, Jan. 20.
This group is composed of 18
older adults; 16 mandolin
players and two pianists. They
feel that their lucky number of
18 is CHAI symbolizing LIFE,
which is just what they bring
to the audiences for whom
they perform. They play
for various organizations:
children's group, nursing
homes and anywhere they can
bring joy into the lives of
The director, Morris Bell,
also plays the cello and is
responsible for re-arranging
all the music for this group.
The mandolin ensemble began
14 years ago and we hope they
will continue their fine work
for many more years to come.
They are a beautiful group and
it was a privilege to have them
at the JCC.

against innocents. That was,
with very few exceptions, how
the Jews won their part of
Palestine from the British and
assorted Arab enemies and
how American patriots
established this country. Presi-
dent Reagan himself has label-
ed the PLO a terrorist
organization and Secretary of
State Shultz has refuted the
slogan that "one man's ter-
rorist is another man's
freedom fighter." Probably
you just misspoke.
As to the "foreign occupa-
tion" the Palestinian Arabs
are under, as a reporter you
must find it curious that this
issue was never raised when
Jordan held the West Bank
from 1948 to 1967 even
though only two nations,
neither Arab, recognized Jor-
dan's annexation. Israel came
to control the West Bank and
Gaza after winning the Six-
Day War, a war of self-defense
it launched when Egypt closed
the Gulf of Eilat and, along
with Syria and Jordan, massed
troops on Israel's borders. So
under international law, Israel
remains the legal ad-
ministrative authority and will
until Jordan and Syria (which
lost the Golan Heights) are
ready to recognize Israel and
negotiate a compromise.
That's what Egypt did and it
received the entire Sinai in
Meanwhile, the Palestinian
Arab residents of the West
Bank have a much higher stan-
dard of living, a lower rate of
infant mortality and higher
levels of education than they
ever did under Jordanian rule.
And even under Israeli
military censorship, they have
the freest press in the Arab
world. Had they chosenjo par-
ticipate in had the PLO

to self-rule. You asked the
President if there was a
peaceful way for them. There
was, and they blew it.
Nonetheless, the Israeli
government has made clear it
is still ready to negotiate these
issues with Jordan and
representative Palestinians
who are not terrorists or
members of terrorist organiza-
tions. Time is wasting. As
Secretary Shultz noted at his
press conference Jan. 9,
"Violence and terrorism in the
Middle East have not achieved
anything for the Palestinian
people. The only thing that can
really get anywhere is a
negotiated solution. The states
involved have to be ready to sit
down with Israel and negotiate
out their differences ..."
Before I close, Ms. Thomas,
I should mention two other
points. There are two Palesti-
nian peoples the Palestinian
Arabs and the Palestinian
Jews. For decades, until well
into the 1950's, when someone
said Palestinian he or she in-
variably meant the Jews who
were reclaiming part of their
ancient land. The bulk of the
Palestinian Mandate ad-
ministered by Great Britain
more than 75 percent
already had been set aside for
the Arabs of Palestine in the
1920's as Transjordan, now
And although about 500,000
Arabs left the new state of
Israel in 1948, 800,000 Jews
living in Arab land fled their
ancient homes leaving near-
ly everything behind and
made their way to Israel. Such
population exchanges on
much more massive scales
took place between India and
Pakistan, between Poland and
Germany, Turkey and Greece,
and elsewhere around the
world after 1945. Only the
Palestinian Arabs came to pre-
sent an insoluble problem
epitomizing the Arab states'
refusal to recognize Israel.
When the acceptance you ask-
ed about replaces that refusal,
even this part of the problem
may be solved.

Self respecting nations and

Lake Worth Jewish Center Acquires Land For Building
The dream and hard work of
a pioneer group of residents of
suburban Lake Worth to
establish a Conservative
Synagogue in their area is
becoming a reality.
The Lake Worth Jewish
Center, born in the fertile
mind of Mrs. Robert Schwartz
of the Town Homes in the
Poinciana Golf and Racquet
Club, is now a fledgeling con-
gregation already grown to a
fully paid membership of over
450 people. It is an accredited
member of the United
Synagogue of America and has
been fortunate to engage the
full time services of one of the
outstanding spiritual leaders
in America, Rabbi Richard K.
Rocklin, formerly of Charlotte,
North Carolina.
All this has been accomplish-
ed without a home. The Lake
Worth Jewish Center has been
holding Friday evening and
Saturday morning services
through the kind cooperation
and brotherhood of two local
churches. For more than a
year it used the facilities of the
St. Lukes United Methodist
Church on Ohio Road in
Florida Gardens, before turn-
ing to the present interim
home, the Free Methodist
Church on Dillman Road, just
off Jog Road between Forest
Hill and Summit Blvds.
The next major move has
been completed. The
synagogue is proud to an-
nounce that it has purchased a
parcel of land on which to
erect its own temple. It is
ideally located for the best con-
venience of a large segment of
its present members, a four-
and-a-half acre plot on Jog
Road, immediately south of
Lake Worth Road, on the east
side, just north of Melaleuca
With the purchase of its own
land, the final and most impor-
tant step now faces the Lake
Worth Jewish Center: the
creation of a building fund to
complete a building necessary
to serve the community for its
spiritual and social needs.
Janet Schwartz, who served
as the Center's first president;
Murray Milrod, who succeeded
her to the presidency; and Clif-
ford Storch, chairman of the
large and eager Building Fund
Committee, are hard at work,
formulating programs design-
ed to reach a goal of about
$500,000 to start construction.
The Lake Worth Jewish
Center is in need of the fullest
cooperation of its present
members, a long list of pro-
spective members, condo
developers in the area,
business leaders and other
assorted angels.

Libya: Training
Center For Terrorists
Libya has established more
than 20 training camps for ter-
rorists where more than 7,000
terrorists from all over the
world are receiving training in
terror, assassination, subver-
sion and sabotage activities,
according to a 43-page booklet
on Libya s connection to inter-
national terror, just released
by the Israel Defense Force
spokesman's office.
It says that since Muammar
Khadafy seized power in 1969,
Libya has given support to
almost every terrorist group

throughout the world. The
booklet is based in part on
surveys of media reports
throughout the world and on
statements by Khadfy himself
and by terrorist organizations.
It details Khadafy's at-
tempts to subvert govern-
ments and Arab opponents, his
offer of money, weapons and
training for what he calls na-
tional liberation movements
around the globe.
The Libyan link goes
through Africa and the Middle
East to Europe and on to
Latin America. It involves Li-
byan support and help not only
for a variety of Palestinian ter-
rorist organizations but also
for others, such as the
Japanese Red Army, the
Italian Red Brigades and the
West German Red Army Fac-
tion, the IRA in Ireland, the
Basque ETA, and various
groups in Latin America.
The book claims that
Khadafy also set up his own
terrorist group, the Arab Na-
tionalist Youth for the Libera-
tion of Palestine, which car-
ried out some major airline at-
tacks soon after its establish-
ment in the early 1970's. But
little has been heard of this
group of late.
The IDF review lists a long
record of contacts between
Khadafy and Abu Nidal, in-
cluding talks between the two
in Libya last September con-
tradicting Khadafy's own
claim that he has not met Abu
Nidal for more than a year.
Khadafy is said to have been
distributing as much as $100
million a year to terrorist and
subversive groups around the
At camps in Libya, terrorists
and Liberation groups receive
training for a variety of ac-
tivities. According to a list in
the IDF booklet, Tunisians,
Moroccans and Sudanese train
at three camps; Africans from
Nigeria, Chad and Zaire,
among other African coun-
tries, are located at two other
camps; and Palestinians, Euro-
peans and others are being
trained at more than a dozen
camps all over Libya.

Soviet Aliya Activist Arrives In Israel With His
TEL AVIV (JTA) A Soviet aliya activist who
became a self-taught Orthodox Jew while still in the Soviet
Union has arrived here with his wife, three children and his
wife's parents. Ilya Essas, described as a bed teshuva, was
granted an exit visa after World Jewish Congress presi-
dent Edgar Bronfman intervened with the Soviet
authorities on his behalf. His parents immigrated to Israel
several years ago.
Essas is the recognized leader of a Jewish religious
revivalist movement which apparently is functioning in the
USSR despite Soviet official opposition to all religions. His
halachic knowledge, gained without benefit of formal in-
struction, is such that he is consulted by observant Jews all
over the Soviet Union on religious matters. His following
inside Russia is said to closely resemble the Hasidic sects.
