The Honeymoon Is Over
Hussein-Arafat Rift May
Increase Chances For Peace
Anatoly Shcharansky during a physical examination at
Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem. After the ex-
amination, Prof. Mervyn Gotsman (right), head of the Heart
Institute at Hadassah Hospital, diagnosed a slight heart
defect, a slight trembling in one of his hands and some dental
problems. 'Only a man with a special physical and mental
strength could have stood up to such harsh conditions,' said
Prof. Gotsman about Shcharansky.
- (JTA) King Hussein's
forthright announcement that
he has ended his fruitless year-
long efforts to bring the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion into the peace process
because of continued PLO in-
transigence was hailed by
Israeli leaders last week as an
"historic opportunity" for the
Palestinian people to "take
their fate into their own
Premier Shimon Peres,
speaking at Tel Aviv Universi-
ty, called on the Palestinians in
the administered territories to
"seize the moment." Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin, in a
television interview, urged the
Palestinians in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip to cut
themselves away from the
PLO and "stand up for
yourseivaji, tahc care of the
1.25 million Palestinians in the
territories and join Hussein in
a move to peace."
Peres, declaring that the
prospects for peace have im-
proved, summoned the Palesti-
nians to act immediately. The
Jordanian ruler, he said, did
the right thing by "exposing
the truth about the PLO," and their word becomes their bond,
a great deal will now depend characterized by commitment,
on the inhabitants of the oc- credibility and
cupied areas .. Will they let
time pass, eating away at their
fate, or will they take the op-
portunity, take their fate into
their own hands?"
Hussein, in a lengthy televi-
sion address to the Jordanian
people, expressed in unam-
biguous terms his frustration
with the PLO and its leader,
Yasir Arafat. "I and the
government of the Kingdom of
Jordan announce that we are
unable to continue to ccor-
diante politically with the PLO
leadership until such time as
Hussein said.
Peres warned the Palesti-
nians that "to follow the PLO
is to go nowhere and get
nowhere. They'll kul a few
more people; a little more ter-
rorism. But basically they're
killing their own future," the
Premier said. Hussein's an-
nouncement came as "no sur-
frise to me .. Two weeks ago
saw already that the Hussein-
Arafat talks were a total
failure." The public rift bet-

Army (SLA) was also kidnap-
ped and two SLA soldiers
were killed in a convoy ambush
inside the security zone.
Military sources identified
the slain sailor as Daniel
Amar, 19, a naval rating from
Nethanya. He was the victim
of a sharpshooter who fired at
the patrol boat from a beach
near Tyre. He was the third
Israeli military fatality since
the IDF was withdrawn from
south Lebanon eight months
The identities of the kidnap-
ped soldiers have not been
made pubic nor were details of
the massive search operation
announced. But reports from
the Lebanon border area said a
large IDF force consisting of
hundreds of armored person-
nel carriers, halftracts, tanks
and busloads of soldiers
entered south Lebanon. IDF
helicopters were also par-
ticipating in the search.
The reports said a number of
suspected terrorists were de-
tained. They are understood to
be members of Hisbullah (Ar-
my of God) an extremist Shiite

Board of Governors of the

meeting here last week with a
declaration on behalf of Anato-
ly Shcharansky, read to him by
telephone to Jerusalem by
Jerold Hoffberger, Board of
Governors chairman, while
more than 300 participants at
the meeting listened.
The declaration stated: "The
Board of Governors of the

civil liberties are extended to

Senate Ratifies
Genocide Convention
WASHWGTON (JTA) Sen. William Proxmire (D., Wis,), who has urg-
ed Senate ratification of the Genocide Convention every day the Senate has
been in session since January 11,1967, said last Thursday he was "delighted" it
had finally occurred. But he added, "It's a great shame that it took 37 years.
The Senate ratified the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and
Punishment of the Crime of Genocide by an 83-11 vote. The vote came almost 37
years after President Truman, who signed the treaty on December 11,1948, sub-
mitted it to the Senate and after 97 other countries had ratified it. Proxmire said
he hoped the United States will use the treaty to stop acts of genocide wherever
they occur in the world.
But he said he was disappointed that the effect of the treaty has been weaken-
ed by the inclusion of reservations maintaining the right of the U.S. not to submit
certain matters covered by the Convention to the World Court and preventing
the treaty from superseding the U.S. Constitution.
Proxmire said he hoped a future Administration would delete these provisions,
because by including the reservations the U.S. has joined the Soviet Union in say-
ing it is above international law.
The treaty, which declares genocide, whether in peacetime or wartime, a crime
under international law, defines it as killing or harming national, ethnic, racial or
religious groups or members of those groups.

Super Sunday '86
Youth Volunteers To Wash Cars for Hod Ha Sharon
To help supplement the
Jewish Federation's Super
Sunday Magic community-
wide effort to help Jews ui
need, concerned Jewish teens
will hold a community car
wash on Sunday, March 2,
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the
Okeechobee Mobil station on
the corner of Okeechobee
Boulevard and Spencer Drive
in front of Pantry Pride.
"Last year we raised money
for Operation Moses," said
Paul Tochner, Super Sunday
teen co-chair, "This year we
want to raise money for our
peers in Hod HaSharon, our
Project Renewal twin com-
munity in Israel."
"The young people of Giora
and Gil Amal will benefit in
many ways fsom our support,"
added Super Sunday teen co-
chair Roneet Weingarten, who
made several friends in Hod
HaSharon as a result of her
participation in the High
School in Israel program. "It's
important for our friends in
Hod HaSharon to know that
people of all ages in our com-
munity care about their

ment by
youth, a collection "bank" has
been set up at the Wednesday
night Midrasha-Judaica High
to this commit-
our community's
School. The proceeds from the
bank and the car wash will be
presented by the teen
volunteers during Super Sun-
day phonathon on March 16.
Tochner and Weingarten
emphasized that the car wash
and collection bank were pro-
posed and organized by the
teenagers with no outside
help. They also noted that
most of the young people who
have volunteered to wash cars
on March 2 have also offered
their services on Super Sun-
day, March 16.
The Super Sunday teen co-
chairs encourage everyone in
the community to support the
car wash effort, and interested
teenage workers are urged to
show up at Okeechobee Mobil
Station Sunday morning
March 2 to lend a hand in the
effort to build a future for the
youth of Hod HaSharon.

in our county grows, so do the
needs of all our citizens, and it
is up to us to meet those
needs," said the Evenchiks.

Not Jiist A Film
Shultz On Aid, Peace Process
Sitting through the 9V2 hour
film Shoah (Hebrew for
holocaust) is an excruciating
experience. An hour into the
film which is being called
the definitive documentary
about the Holocaust I
wanted to escape. But walking
out of Shoah seems like a
betrayal. One can't help but
feel that if the six million had
to live the Holocaust and die
in it the least we can do is
watch a film.
It isn't easy though. Director
and producer Claude Lanz-
mann subjects his viewers to
horrifying images. They are
not of the dead. The entire film
was made in the 1980's and no
archival footage is included.
Its horrifying images are of
people in Poland and Germany
today who seem as if they
would perpetrate another
mass murder now if they
had the chance and if a sizable
Jewish population could still be
found in eastern Europe.
Other jarring images are of
the places where the Holocaust
took place. Lanzmann takes
the viewer to railway stations
and death camps. A train pull-
ing into the Auschwitz station
is shown again and again. This
particular shot leaves the
viewer with the sickening sen-
sation that he is on the train.
The image and its seemingly
endless repetition has the
feeling of a nightmare. You
want to wake up. You want to
get out of that theater. But
you can't.
Shoah is not, by any stretch
of the imagination, entertain-
ment. It is, rather, entertain-
ment's opposite. It is op-
pressive. It takes the almost
meaningless term
"Holocaust" and breaks it
down into its component parts.
Six million people were not
just whooshed away by a
storm. No, they were killed in
a mechanized, almost in-
dustrial process. Shoah shows
how it was done. And it shows
that the hatred that made it
possible still exists. See it. But
don't expect even the satisfac-
tion of easy tears.
One of Shoah' main points is
that the Holocaust was unique.
After seeing it, one cannot
casually compare other
tragedies to what befell Euro-
pean Jews between 1933 and
1945. In the Feb. 17 New
Republic, writer and survivor
Primo Levi explains that uni-
queness. He says that he would
not even compare Stalin's
Gulag to the Nazi death camps.
The Nazi camps were "gigan-
tic death machines. Gas
chambers and crematories
were deliberately planned to
destroy lives and human
bodies on a scale of millions.
The appalling record belongs
to Auschwitz with 24,000 dead
in a single day, in August
The Soviet camps represent
different "models of hell." The
"principal difference lies in the
finality." Levi writes that
"one entered the German
camps .. never to emerge.
No outcome but death was
foreseen." In the Soviet
camps, the death of prisoners
was not "expressly sought. It
was a very frequent occur-
rence, and it was tolerated
with brutal indifference, but
basically it was not expressly
intended. It was a by-product,
rather, of hunger, cold, infec-
tions, hard labor." He says
that it is this difference that
led to a 30 percent mortality
figure in the Soviet camps but
to a 98 percent death rate in
the Nazi camps.
Levi makes an important
distinction. Nazi Germany's
slaughter of the Jews was not
a war atrocity; not was it
similar to the mass incarcera-
tions common in other
totalitarian states. For the
Nazis, the slaughter of the
Jews was an end in itself. Jews
were not imprisoned to silence
them or to stop them from op-
posing the system. Jews were
incarcerated as a prelude to
their mass extermination.
There was nothing Jews could
do no religious practice they
could renounce or ideology,
they might adopt that would
save them or their children
from the gas chambers. This is
where the Holocaust, the
Shoah, differs from most of the
century's other horrors. The
Jews of the Holocaust sought
no "human rights" except to
live and that is the right that
was denied them.
Aid for Israel and the health
of the U.S.-promoted Middle
East "peace process" were on
the minds or House Foreign
Affairs Committee members
recently as Secretary of State
George Shultz presented a
global preview for the coming
In welcoming Shultz, Com-
mittee Chairman Dante
Fascell (D., Fla.) said that the
Administration's budget envi-
sions much more for interna-
tional programs than Congress
has authorized already for
fiscal 1987. Fascell noted that
one of his subcomittee
chairmen "has warned that
the (Gramm-Rudman-Hollings)
balanced budget legislation
could mean between a 25 per-
cent and a 50 percent reduc-
tion in foreign aid .. ."
Shultz was asked what
would happen if the White
House and Congress could not
agree on specific cuts to comp-
ly with Gramm-Rudman-
Hollings. Would aid to Israel,
Egypt, and countries in which
the U.S. holds rights to bases,
such as Greece, Turkey,
Pakistan, Portugal, the Philip-
pines and Oman, be protected
from required across-the-
board reductions? If it is, he
was told, little or no funds
would be left for approximate-
ly 40 other countries.
But, of course, we know all
that. Why would we need to
see a 9% hour film like Shoah?
For Primo Levi, the answer is
simple: so that we don't
forget. "Because what hap-
pened could happen again."
Another murderous force
"with its trail of intolerance,
abuse, and servitude, can be
born outside our country and
imported into it, walking on
tiptoes and calling itself by
other names ... At that point,
wise counsel no longer serves,
and one must find the strength
to resist. But then, too, the
memory of what happened in
the heart of Europe, not very
long ago, can serve as support
and warning." At this point,
all we can do is remember.
"I suppose that's the pur-
pose of the ... Act," the
Secretary said. "To confront
us all with something clearly of
great difficulty if not unaccep-
tability ... We will, somehow
or other, put together a
reasonable plan so that that
doesn't come into effect."
Pressed to clarify his position
on foreign aid cuts if Congress
and the Administration do fail
to reach a budget compromise
a failure many observers ex-
pect Shultz said, "I don't
want to respond to 'iffy'
He did note that by agreeing
to return $51.6 mUion in
economic aid for fiscal 1986 so
that other countries would not
suffer larger cuts, Israel
already has chosen "in a sense
not to single itself out... The
point of all this is to try to
work out the problems in a
sensible way so a process that
doesn't make as much sense
(across-the-board slashes) does
not come into effect."
Rep. Lee Hamilton (D.,
Ind.), chairman of the Subcom-
mittee on Europe and the Mid-
dle East, observed that "it has
been four years since there
have been any Middle East
peace talks." He said that 1985
showed some hopeful signs,
but that after Israeli Prime
Minister Shimon Peres' en-
couraging U.N. speech in Oc-
tober and some positive
statements by King Hussein,
"my perception is that the
leading actors in the Middle
East are backing away" from
diplomatic initiatives.
Shultz replied that "whether
the situation looks immediate-
ly promising or not, we need to
keep the effort going ..
There is still very much alive a
strong effort and I think it is
up to us to keep pushing it. I
don't think we should ever get
in the position of saying well,
the odds are against
something constructive hap-
pening and therefore we might
as well turn our attention
In response to a question
from Rep. Ben Gilman (R.,
N.Y.), the Secretary did not
give details but said American
willingness to make arms sales
to Saudi Arabia "is very much
in our interest ... We believe
that being willing to make
sales to Jordan to help King
Hussein support his own
security is also of great impor-
tance.* He suggested that
Congressional opposition
which forced the Administra-
tion to back away from its
latest Jordan arms sale "is a
major detriment to our efforts
to move the peace process
Shultz said that on the whole
Saudi Arabia has been helpful
in U.S. peace efforts in the
Middle East. In the past,
members of the Committee
have charged that Saudi finan-
cial support for the PLO and
Syria and continued opposition
to Egypt's return to the Arab
League prove that Riyadh
obstructs U.S. diplomacy in
the region.
Capitol Hill sources told
Near East Report that the
failure of Arafat and Hussein
to reach agreement on PLO
acceptance of U.N. Security
Council Resolutions 242 and
338 after days of intense talk
meant that their Feb. 11,1985
"accord" was dead. "Coor-
dination will continue,"
predicted one analyst, "but

Letter to the Editor
77ie Jewish Floridian:
In 1940 six million Jews and
others were murdered in Nazi
Concentration Camps.
During those dark days a
brave Swedish Diplomat in
Budapest, Hungary, risked his
life to save thousands of
Hungarian Jews from death.
Now the whole world knows
the heroic deeds of Raoul
Wallenberg, the righteous
Gentile. He was arrested by
the Russians on January 17,
1945. It is a sad anniversary of
Wallenberg's abduction.
The Raoul Wallenberg com-
mittees of the world and
Wallenberg's family, in the
absence of hard evidence that
he is dead, continue to believe
that he might still be alive!
The Raoul Wallenberg Com-
mittee of Palm Beach County
is keeping alive the tragic
story of Wallenberg. The Palm
Beach County Commission
roclaimed '' Raoul
allenberg Day" since
January 26, 1983. Last year
we joined the worldwide
tribute to remember Raoul
Wallenberg on January 17.
We can't forget the painful
horrors of the Holocaust. We
can't forget the heroic deed of
Raoul Wallenberg. He is an
Honorary Citizen of the U.S.
through the efforts of Tom
Lantos, Congressman from
California, who as a young boy
was saved by Wallenberg and
formed a worldwide organiza-
tion in behalf of Wallenberg.
Recently Canada bestowed
Honorary Citizenship to
Wallenberg. By the act of the
U.S. House and Senate, the
street in Washington D.C.
where the U.S. Holocaust
Museum will be built, will be
named Wallenberg Place.
On January 21, on behalf of
the Raoul Wallenberg Com-
mittee, I appeared before the

Random Thoughts
Have you ever given a
thought to the mysterious way
in which Jewish babies are
named? This has long been a
puzzlement to me, and I have
come to believe that there are
cycles of popularity which
repeat themselves through the
Of course, it is a beautiful
tradition to perpetuate the
memory of a loved one by giv-
ing the name to a newborn*.
But let's examine this closely
and maybe we can figure out a
pattern. For instance, so-
meone who has passed on may
have been called Herschel a
perfectly good and balabatesh
name. The classy father and
mother of the brand new baby
might think twice about rais-
ing a Herschel in our society
today, so they opt for Harmon
or Harvey or Hadley. Of
course, this is their
prerogative but what these
names have to do with good
old Uncle Herschel is anyone's
Some 60 odd years ago
(don't breathe a word about
my age!) when I came upon the
scene, my mother decided to
call me Marie after an aunt
who never made it to America.
When my grandma got the
word, she gave a geshrei,
"What kind of a name is Marie
for a nice Yiddisheh
maideleh?" Ever obedient, my
mother changed the name to
Muriel and where she got
that one I still don't know.
Grandma was satisfied but I
can't imagine why. It was a
name she was never, ever able
to pronounce from day one.
I have always been quite
happy about my name because
I used to think it had a
theatrical ring. Most of my
peers were Sylvias, Ruths,
Miriams, and Ethels. Those
were the popular names of our
era and Muriel was somewhat
of a standout. To make it even
more unusual, my middle
name is June and there
weren't too many Muriel Junes
running around 60 years ago in
the Bronx of Kingsbndge
Road. My mother was certain-
ly avant garde in her choices of
Gentle readers, do you
remember when all your boy
friends were called Sam, Sol,
Hy, Irving or Max? I surely do.
All of a sudden those names
seemed to disappear and in
their place came Steven,
Michael, Richard and Robert.
Boy, did we assimilate quickly!
I recall my mother having
friends whose names all ended
with "ie" like Bessie, Tillie,
Sadie, Mollie, Rosie and Min-
nie. You rarely hear these
sweet names any more and
if you do, they usually belong
to seniors. I still think they are
lovely names with charming,
old world flavor to them. They
have grace and beauty much
like their owners.
And then came World War
II and we were treated to a
whole new generation of An-
drews, Alans, and Craigs who
seemed to pop out of nowhere.
The little girls were all called
Susan, Linda or Carole. My
relatives were no different,
and these names appear on
every branch of our family
Of course, now and then you
come across a name that's a
dilly. I actually went to school
with a Jewish girl named Fleur
de Lis Gottbaum. I even met a
Carmencita Leibowitz and an
Abraham Lincoln Kirschbaum.
What gets into a mother's
mind when she lays these
heavy names on an unsuspec-
ting infant? The poor kids go
through life saddled with
handles that often bring
laughter from their peers.
I also wonder about dolly
names like Penny and Wendy.
Some day these itty-bitty
babies will grow up, have their
own children and then grand-
children. What then? Can you
picture a little kid looking up
to talk to her "Grandma Pen-
ny" or "Grandma Wendy?"
Somehow such names belong
to little girls not bubbehs or
am I wrong?
Well, at long last the table
seems to have turned. We are
now pretty much finished with
the cutesy-pie names and have
gone back to the classic bibical
names that have depth, mean-
ing and character. Look
around you and be prepared
for Joshua, Daniel, Jed and
David. Happily, Esther,
Rebecca, and Naomi have
never been more popular.
As for me, I am proud to tell
you my two grandsons bear
the beautiful bible names of
Jonathan and Adam. Maybe
we'll have a maideleh soon and
if she could be a Sarah or a
Judith, wouldn't that be
peachy keen? Then my cup
would surely runneth over!
Frozen Peace
The latest word from Cairo is that the Mubarak government is
having second thoughts about the Taba arbitration process. Not
' only that, some Egyptian officials are saying that even resolu-
1 tion of the Taba dispute won't necessarily lead to normalization
1 of relations with Israel. One official said that there must first be
'major improvements on the West Bank. Another mentioned
| unhappiness about Israel's administration of Moslem holy places
in Jerusalem.
In short, Egypt is still finding excuses for not living up to the
terms of the Camp David peace treaty. It has now been more
than three years since Egypt removed its ambassador from Tel
Aviv. At that time Cairo said that the ambassador would return
when Israeli troops left Lebanon. Israel withdrew from Lebanon
last spring but there is still no ambassador at Egypt's embassy in
Israel. Each time it appears that Cairo will have no choice but to
send him back that its conditions have been met it finds
another reason not to. And slowly, slowly Israel's belief in
Egypt's good will is dissipating and along with it the Camp
David dream.

two countries, the Minister of
Health of Spain's Andalusia

Hebrew University Medical

Dr. Palo Recio Arias had
brought a team to Hadassah
because of the Medical
Center's reputation in Nuclear
Medicine and Radiology.
"Medicine is one of the main
areas in which Spain would
like to have a close cooperation
with Israel," he said. "Today's
visit is just the beginning of
what we hope will lead to
many exchanges of ideas in the
field of medicine."
Dr. Arias and his team were
greeted by Dr. Zvi Stern,
Deputy Director-General of

tribution to medicine in the

'A Promise for the Future'
The Endowment Fund Of The
Jewish Federation Of Palm Beach County
Declarations of Intent
Friday, February 28, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 7
i A Dream Comes True
Endowment Director
During the past several
weeks we have begun to
review the numerous existing
vehicles by which an individual
or family can become a part of
our Endowment Program.
However, thus far, we have
not spent much time talking
about how an individual might
think about beginning his or
her commitment to the En-
dowment Program, and how
that commitment will come to
represent the backbone of the
Jewish community for genera-
tions yet unborn.
One way to begin is with a
Letter or Declaration of In-
tent. What is a Declaration of
Intent? A Declaration of In-
tent is the first step in the pro-
cess of helping to ensure our
Jewish community's future.
Declarations of Intent have
been signed by thousands of
people all over the country.
Some have made their
Declarations of Intent public;
others have requested
anonymity. Signing a Declara-
tion of Intent is not a legal
obligation, but, rather, a
positive statement, a moral
commitment that each person
has made to take the next step
to becoming a partner in en-
suring our Jewish future for
generations to come.
Our Jewish future is yet to
come, but not too many years
ago when the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County
was created, the Jewish future
was today. Endowment gifts,
both modest and substantial,
generated through the
Declaration of Intent program
have helped build substantial
endowments in many com-
munities across the country
and in these communities have
helped constituent agencies of
Federations meet the
challenge of expanding capital
needs and program needs;
and, of course they have pro-
vided instant funds to meet
emergency needs both at
home, in Israel and in other
countries where Jews needed
help. Today, Endowment
Funds are needed more than
ever to provide a deep finan-
cial reservoir for the future of
our Federation, its affiliated
agencies and services they

already signed a Declaration of
Intent, and at the appropriate
time implementing that intent,
you will be" helping to add
another link in the long chain
of tradition that our people call
A Declaration of Intent can
be a very simple document and
will show that you want to do
your share to aid future
generations and to ensure the
continuity of services of our
Federation and its affiliated
agencies. Here is what a
Declaration of Intent might
look like:
I believe in the future of our
Jewish community. Building for
that future takes both an annual
commitment and an intent to
become a partner in helping
generations to come. Therefore,

Print or type name
If you have questions which I
hope this short piece has pro-
voked, please do not hesitate
to get in touch with me, for the
Declaration of Intent is in
many instances how an En-
dowment commitment begins.
Whether ultimately you choose
to establish a Philanthropic
Fund, make a gift of life in-
surance, include the Federa-
tion in a bequest in your Will,
establish a trust fund or foun-
dation, the thought process
can begin here. Simply stated,
your "Promise for the Future"
can be made today.

In Palm Beach County
BONN (JTA) The Mayor of a West German town
who suggested that "a few rich Jews should be slain" in
order to balance the budget, has resigned under a barrage
of criticism. Wilderich Von Mierbach of Korschenbroich, a
town of 27,000 in North Rhine-Westphalia, said he was
quitting to avoid further damage to West Germany's image
abroad and to the process of German-Jewish reconciliation.
Von Mierbach made the anti-Semitic remark at a meeting
of the town council's budget committee last December. The
local newspaper, owned by a member of the Christian
Democratic Union (CDU), the Mayor's party, suppressed it
but it came to general media attention last month and trig-
gered outrage.
Von Mierbach offered an apology. But the Jewish com-
munity in nearby Dusseldorf filed a lawsuit and calls for his
resignation came from non-Jewish as well as Jewish
The Mayor finally said he'd had enough and could no
longer take the media pressure. Word from headquarters
of the CDU in Bonn that he could no longer rely on its sup-
port apparently prompted his decision to leave office.
Ann Lynn Lipton, Jewish Education director of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, welcomed
Barbara Steinberg, executive director of the Jewish
Community Day School, Sam Steinberg, and Hank
Grossman to the open house for the Community Media
Resource Center on Sunday, February 16.

community media center some seven years ago.

Interfaith Couples
Discussion Group
Being Formed
As they build their lives
together, all married couples
must confront certain issues,
such as separation from family
and working out a balance bet-
ween the need for closeness
and the need for individuation.
In a marriage between a Jew
and one of another faith, dif-
ferences in background and
experience may create an addi-
tional challenge in the working
out of these concerns. Often an
interfaith couple must deal
with these issues without
much support or background
information from the family or
the community.
To help unaffiliated inter-
faith couples meet in a com-
fortable, non-judgmental en-
vironment to share their per-
sonal concerns about children,
families and expectations, the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregation (UAHC) is spon-
soring an eight-week discus-
sion program entitled "The
Times and the Seasons: A
Jewish perspective on Inter-
faith Marriage," which will
meet on Thursday evenings.
During the course, which is
coordinated by Rabbi Rachel
Hertzman of the Southeast
Council of UAHC, participants
will also have the opportunity
for study of Jewish traditions,
beliefs and practices.
This program, taught by
Ann Lynn Lip ton, who also
serves as Jewish Education
director of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County,
was so successful last spring
that the couples involved have
stayed together as a support
group and hold frequent infor-
mal meetings.
All unaffiliated interfaith
couples who are interested in
joining a group dialogue and
learning experience which will
deepen their relationship are
encouraged to call Rabbi Hert-
zman at 592-4792 so that a
core group can be formed and
another successful session of
"The Times and the Seasons"
can begin.

Liturgical Culture Foundation Schedules Cantorial Concert
The Palm Beach Liturgical
Cultural Foundation, with the
support of six area
synagogues, will sponsor a
Cantorial Concert featuring
four of the world's greatest
Cantors and the Beth Torah
Choir from North Miami
Beach on Wednesday, April 9,
at 7:30 p.m. at the Palm Beach
According to Max B.
Shapiro, chairman of the
Liturgical Culture Founda-
tion, Cantors Zvee Aroni,
David Bagley, Benzion Miller
and Sol Zim will display their
virtuosity and diverse talents
in a concert he calls "a land-
mark cultural event for Palm
Beach County."
Synagogues working in
cooperation with the

Cantor Zvee Aroni, current-
ly the cantor of the prestigious
Beth Torah Congregation in
North Miami Beach, began his
musical studies as a child in
Jerusalem, performing in the
Holy Land for concerts and
holidays. Upon arrival in

IDF Search For Kidnapped Soldiers

group linked to Iran. Hisbullah
is believed responsible for the
ambush of the three-car con-
voy carrying IDF and SLA
soldiers near Beth Yahun
village and is probably holding
the kidnapped soldiers
1 Premier Shimon Peres vowed
that Israeli operations in south
Lebanon will continue until its
objectives are achieved, in this
case the rescue of the kidnap-
ped men. "Israel will exhaust
every possibility to find them.
Every person in Israel is a
world on his own and dear to
us all," Peres said.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who visited the scene of
the ambush, told reporters
that large caches of arms have
been uncovered in many south
Lebanon villages being search-
ed for missing soldiers. He said
that when the operation is
completed, the IDF troops and
equipment will be returned to
routine duties in Israel. Only a
small number of IDF person-
nel will remain in the security
zone to act as liaison and in-
structors with the SLA, Rabin
He said the 3 to 12-mile
security belt, established when
the IDF pulled out of Lebanon
last June, had proved its
worth. He added, however,
that it has become obvious that
the defense methods and
equipment used must be
changed from time to time in
1 i gn t of changing
During the operation,
helicopters showered leaflets
on Lebanese towns and
villages warning the popula-
tion not to be drawn into
hostile activities against the
IDF. The Hisbullah is probably
the most militant and fanatical
of the anti-Israel groups in
south Lebanon.
According to Iraeli experts
familiar with the Shiite popula-
tion, the kidnappings of the
soldiers and the taking of
hostages from among the tiny
Jewish community in Beirut
are the work of Hisbullah. The
kidnappers of the Beirut Jews
call themselves "The
Organization of the Oppressed
of the World," but according
to the experts, Hisbullah
operates under a variety of
names in order to create confu-
sion and deflect blame.
The Israeli experts say the
latest rash of kidnappings has
angered Amal, the main militia
and political organization of
the Shiite majority in south
Lebanon. The extremists are
trying to show up Amal as soft
on Israel, the experts say.
Amal has been the chief source
of attacks of the IDF when it
still occupied south Lebanon
but became more restrained
after the IDF left.

Senators Seek
Arafat Indictment
The effort to have the Justice
Department seek an indict-
ment of Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasir
Arafat for the murder of two
American diplomats in the
Sudan in 1973 has taken on in-
creased weight with a letter
signed by Senators urging At-
torney General Edwin Messe
to initiate the action.
"We urge the Justice
Department to assign the
highest priority to completing
this review and to issue an in-
dictment of Yasir Arafat if the
evidence so warrants," said
the letter written by Sens.
Frank Lautenberg (D., N.J.)
and Charles Grassley (R.,
Both the Justice and State
Departments have said they
are studying the matter since
it was first proposed late last
year by Charles Lichtenstein,
a senior Fellow at the Heritage
Foundation, who is a former
Deputy Ambassador to the
United Nations.
The letter to Meese from the
Senators noted that the
Justice Department has
received information linking
Arafat "to the brutal 1973
slaying of Ambassador Cleo
Noel and Charge D'Affaires G.
Curtis Moore in Khartoum."
The Senators pointed to
reports that "the U.S. govern-
ment has a tape recording of
an intercepted message in
which Arafat allegedly
ordered the assassination" of
the two Americans, who were
taken hostage when the Saudi
Arabian Embassy in Khar-
toum was seized by Palestinian
terrorists on March 2, 1973.
An indictment "would send
a clear signal to the world of
our unfaltering commitment to
see justice done and terrorism
punished," Lautenberg said.
He said it would be "a new
avenue to fight terrorism"
which "can be taken
unilaterally by the United HadOSSOh WomOtl Of Valor LUFlCheOfl

of the audience. He said he
would continue together with
American Jews to fight for the
freedom of the remaining
Prisoners of Zion in the Soviet
Union and other Jews who
want to emigrate."
The aliya activist and dissi-
dent who was released from a
Soviet prison and flew to
Israel, spoke, in addition to
Hoffberger, to Leon Dulzin,
chairman of the Jewish Agen-
cy Executive, and to other
Board members.
The meeting was the first
time the 74-member Board
met in the U.S. and the first
time their meeting was open to
other Jewish leaders from the
U.S. and Canada and to the
press. More than 200 Jewish
leaders from the U.S. and
Canada joined the Board
members for the twe-day
Topping the agenda was the
budget for fiscal year 1986/87
and plans for the annual
Jewish Agency Assembly in
Jerusalem June 22-26. The
projected budget is $381
million, in addition to $48
million for Project Renewal.

Appointed Venezuela's

President of Venezuela has ap-
pointed Paulina Gamus as the
nation's Minister of Culture,
the first time in the country's
history that a Jew has achiev-
ed a Cabinet-level post, the
World Jewish Congress
The appointment of Gamus
is engendering particular en-
thusiasm within the Jewish
community, not only because it
represents a further example
of the growing participation of
Jews in Latin American public
life, but also because of her
widely-known identification
with the country's Jewish com-
munal activities.

problems they face.
In addition, if Arafat was in-

ficult for him to travel in
Western Europe and other
countries, Lautenberg said.

measure of mobility and access
to international support," he

At Women's Division Pacesetters
Blitzer Analyzes Events In Israel
Admitting immediately that
"there is so much to talk
about," Wolf Blitzer,
Washington bureau chief for
the Jerusalem Post, focused on
the repercussions of Anatoly
Shcharansky's release, the
peace process and Israeli
politics in a luncheon address
to approximately 60 women at
the Jewish Federation
Women's Division Paceset-
ters' event on Wednesday,
Feb. 12.
Regarding Shcharansky's
freedom, Blitzer said, "all of
us are thrilled and moved,"
and he went on to praise Avital
Shcharansky's commitment
and describe the joyous
celebrations that accompanied
Shcharansky's arrival in
"Unfortunately," Blitzer
reminded the audience, "there
are many more like Shcharan-
sky who are still suffering. We
may hope that his freedom
represents an indication of the
easing of Soviet policy towards
refuseniks, and prisonera of
conscience and a decrease in
the harassment and intimida-
tion of those who strive to
practice Judaism, but we
shouldn't get carried away
with optimism."
Blitzer suggested that the
Soviet Party Congress held
this month may have signifi-
cant ramifications on future
Soviet policy toward Jews, but
he admitted that the overall
number of Jewish emigrees
would probably remain low,
although he added that it was
likely that a few more well-
known refuseniks will be
released in the near future.
Blitzer emphasized that
Israel is concerned with ar-
ranging direct flights from the
Soviet Union to Israel for
Soviet Jews released in the
"It is very important for
Israel that these Jews come to
Israel," he said, referring to
the significant percentage of
"dropouts" who end up in
Europe or America. Blitzer
noted that there are over
200,000 Soviet Jews already
living in Israel who would help
ease the absorption process for
a new generation of Soviet
Jews, and he cited the impor-
tance of Soviet Jews learning
firsthand that the anti-Israel
propaganda which flourishes
in the Soviet Union is not true.
"But it wouldn't be cheap to
absorb these refugees," the
journalist warned. "Those of
us in America would be asked
to pitch in to make this aliyah
successful. Hopefully, we'll be
faced with such a challenge in
the future."
Blitzer expressed doubt that
the, Soviet Union will
reestablish full diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel soon, but he
was of the opinion that in-
creased diplomatic contact at
lower echelons is likely to con-
tinue despite Arab opposition.
Turning to the domestic
situation inside Israel, Blitzer
described Israel's need to
Benefits of Networking To Be Explored
At B&P Women's Forum
As a noun, "network" is
defined as "anything resembl-
ing a net in concept or form, as
by being dispersed in intersec-
ting lines of communication."
More recent usage has expand-
ed the meaning of "network"
to include a verb definition,
which might read something
like this: To interconnect or in-
tercommunicate among a self-
contained, integrated group or
From a less abstract
perspective, networking is the
utilization and sharing of
human resources by other
humans, and it is with this end
in view that the Business and
Professional Women's Group
of the Jewish Federation's
Women's Division is sponsor-
ing a Networking Forum at
the Hyatt Palm Beaches on
Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m.
Lois Frankel, a well-known
local attorney and political
leader, will be the featured
The evening's program is
designed to give business and
professional women the oppor-
tunity to explore ways in
which the shared information,
contacts and skills acquired
through networking can
benefit today's women both
professionally and personally.
Reva Steinberg, chairperson
of networking for the Business
and Professional Women's
Group, explained, "We are
trying to make women aware
of what networking is all
about, the kinds of resources
they can seek easily and how
, they might go about it. We also
hope to provide Jewish women
with the opportunity to net-
work with one another."
Ms. Steinberg observed fur-
ther that "men have tradi-
, tionally had such resources
made available to them and
have been conditioned to work
as 'team players.' We hope to
make women as aware of the
importance of networking as
men are."
Lois Frankel described the
Lois Frankel
message she will be trying to
convey during the forum by
saying, "A woman's best
friend is another woman. In
the establishment today, in-
cluding the financial and
political power structures,
men tend to run things by tak-
ing advantage of their own,
well-established networking
system, which includes the
sharing of skills and contacts,
referrals and returned
Ms. Frankel went on to say
that one goal of the forum is to
explain that networking
among women is an excellent
way of advancing business and
professional careers and stay-
ing on top of changes in any
given field.
Both Steinberg and Frankel
also emphasized that social
networking is as important
and rewarding as networking
on the job and that the two
often complement one
"It seems that as a result of
inexperience women have
hesitated helping each other
by failing to become involved
in the networking process,"
said Lois Frankel. "The forum
is intended to nurture that
"Hopefully, we'll all tap into
what each of us has to offer
and become willing to share,"
concluded Reva Steinberg.
Couvert for the Business and
Professional Women's Net-
working Forum, which in-
cludes dessert and the pro-
gram, is $5. Reservations may

Stoller, assistant Women's
Division director, at the

proportional to increased arms
procurement by the Arabs,
and he cited such security
demands as one of the primary
causes of Israel's economic
Nevertheless. Blitzer
reviewed the miraculous
economic strides achieved by
the National Unity govern-
ment over the past year, em-
phasizing the dramatic reduc-
tion of inflation and the im-
provement in Israel's balance
of payments.
However, Blitzer cited
Israel's unemployment rate,
now above eight percent, as a
factor in "exacerbating social
tensions and promoting
emigration out of Israel." He
also pointed out that "in real
terms, the average Israeli has
lost 20 percent of his income,"
as a result of the government's
austerity program.
Still, Blitzer praised the Na-
tional Unity government for
creating "a fair and equitable
plan which spreads the
sacrifice" and for negotiating
in good faith with Histadrut to
avoid major strikes. "The
government educated the peo-
ple about the gravity of the
problem and the people have
been willing to cooperate,"
said Blitzer.
Blitzer observed that the
Unity government structure
turned out to be the only effec-
tive way to implement the
austerity program because it
assured bipartisan
Asked whether the reins of
leadership will be passed on to
Yitzhak Shamir in October as
scheduled, Blitzer admitted
that "no one knows for sure."
He suggested that a govern-
ment crisis could cause a
reshuffling of power resulting
in an unpredictable outcome,
and he even raised the
possibility of Shimon Peres
calling an election, though he
said such a move would be
"If there isn't serious move-
ment in peace negotiations
between now and October, if
Hussein continues to sit on the
sidelines, the rotation will pro-
bably take place on schedule,"
opined Blitzer.
With regard to the peace
process itself, Blitzer admitted
that he was more optimistic
about the possibility for peace
last fall that he is now. He
described King Hussein's
untenable position by saying,
"Jordan's king has Syria on
Wolf Blitzer
one border, Iraq on another, a
kingdom which is 60 percent
Palestinian, and he's simply
afraid of his political and
physical survival. Hussein has
yet to make up his mind
whether or not he's going to
bite the bullet."
Blitzer lauded Shimon Peres
for his willingness to go to any
lengths, short of accepting the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion at the negotiating table, to
achieve peace.
Blitzer ended his remarks by
attempting to explain "what
makes Israel tick. He recent-
ly toured Israel's borders with
Chief of Staff General Moshe
Levy. He described "chaos in
Lebanon with no end in sight."
Syria, he noted, is massively
armed and its leader, Hafez
Assad, is ruthless. The five-
year-old Iran-Iraq war has
resulted in over one million
Arab deaths and 12,000 people
reportedly were killed during
the recent coup in South
"When Israel sees all of this,
plus Kadaffi," Blitzer said, "it
has to ask itself a fundamental
but ominous question: If
Israel's Arab adversaries are
capable of committing heinous
crimes against each other,
what are they capable of in
terms of antagonism against
Blitzer claimed that this
cognizance "helps explain why
Israel may at times seem in-
transigent and why it
retaliates strongly against ter-
rorist provocation."
Noting also that many
Holocaust survivors fled to,
helped create and currently
live in the State of Israel,
Blitzer observed that "these
Israeli citizens have greater
appreciation of man's ability to
be cruel."
"We should appreciate all of
this when we try to unders-
tand the nature of Israel to-
day," he concluded.

Sharansky: I Am Afraid To Wake Up
Anatoly Sharansky, who
changed his given name to
Nathan when he arrived in
Israel, told of the brutal
years incarceration.
"I think I will have pro-
blems, but these aren't very
difficult problems ... But it is
too early to make concrete
punishments he endured dur- plans," Sharansky said. Asked
ing his nine years in the Soviet if he planned to enter politics
Gulag and spoke of his plans
for the future in his first televi-
sion interview here.
He said he expected his
mother, Ida Milgrom, and his
brother, Leonid, to join him in
Israel "within a month." "I am
hoping for this. This was part
of the deal" for the East-West
prisoner exchange of which he
was a part, Sharansky said.
The 38-year-old, slightly
built, balding mathematician,
computer expert and
cybernetics scientist proved
deft in his responses to ques-
tions on matters that are
fiercely controversial in Israel.
Asked if he was "a religious
man," a matter that has in-
trigued Israelis because his
wife, Avital Sharansky, seated
by his side, became Orthodox
since she immigrated to Israel
in 1974, the aliya activist gave
no direct reply.
But in the course of the in-
terview, he recalled that he
was punished by 130 days in
solitary confinement in his
Soviet prison because he had
gone on a hunger strike to pro-
test the confiscation of a book
of Psalms.
Asked his opinion of the
"Eretz Israel" issue, the ques-
tion of whether Israel should
retain all of the Arab lands it
conquered in the 1967 war or
trade land for peace, Sharan-
sky said he reserved judgment
because he still had much to
learn about the subject, to
which the TV anchorman in-
terjected, "Don't worry, you
Sharansky said he hoped to
resume his profession in Israel
he was a computer and
cybernetics technologist at the
Moscow Research Institute
before his dismissal in 1975 for
applying for an exit visa but
he was concerned that his
knowledge is outdated con-
sidering the rapid advances in
those fields during his nine
in Israel, he replied, "I certain-

perience in order to help other

unique than mine," he said.
With respect to the ongoing
controversy in Israel and
world Jewry over tactics in the
State Henry Kissinger. "But
on the other hand, pressures
without diplomacy are also in-
effective," he said.
On the subject of his health,
Sharansky said, "I had some
very bad periods ... problems
with my heart and my eyes.
This was the result of their
holding me in solitary confine-
ment for more than 400 days
in all... Today I told a doctor
here about conditions in
solitary, and he was frankly
stunned and asked how it was
possible to survive such
Sharansky noted that under
Soviet penal law, 15 days was
the longest time allowed to
keep a prisoner in solitary con-
finement. But his warders ig-
nored the law. "For instance,
when they took away this little
book of Psalms, claiming I was
not allowed to have religious
books, I began a hunger strike.
And (as punishment) for that
they put me in solitary for 130
days. After 92 days I
Recalling his years in prison
and labor camps, Sharansky
said, "Many times in my
dreams I would see how I ar-
rive in our land and how Avital
greets me. Each time it ended
the same way: I woke up. Now,
too, though this dream is
lasting for three whole days,
since they took me from the
KGB prison in Moscow, I am
afraid to wake up."

Soviet Jewry. shultz for the role they played
Addressing a special in bringing about Shcharan-
meeting of the Conference of sky's freedom, Dulzin said that
Presidents of Major American Shcharansky is a "symbol" of
Soviet Jewry as a whole in its
Jewish Organizations in
celebration of the release of
Anatoly Shcharansky, Dulzin
said that "the lesson" of
Shcharansky's release is that
"we should never give up our
struggle and efforts to
release the other Prisoners of
Zion in the Soviet Union and
help all other Soviet Jews who
want to emigrate to Israel to
do so.
Expressing "gratitude" to
President Reagan and
Secretary of the State George
continued fight for human
rights and emigration. "Mazel
Tov, it's a day of celebration
for all of us," Dulzin said,
referring to Shcharansky's
release and his beginning of a
new life in Israel.
Morris Abram, chairman of
the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, who also ad-
dressed the meeting, said that
Shcharansky's release is not a
signal that the oppression of
Soviet Jews is about to end,
and that the fight for Soviet
Jewry must continue.
Observing that Shcharan-
sky's departure was the result
of "quiet diplomacy" on the
part of the Reagan Ad-
ministration as well as the
public campaign and protests
in the United States, Abram
called "to keep the pressure"
of the public campaign in order
to give the President the
"backing" he needs when he
negotiates with the Soviets.
He said that Congress should
demand that the issue of
Soviet Jewry be brought up
again at the U.S.-Soviet sum-
mit meeting scheduled for
later this year.
Kissinger Receives Honorary Doctorate At TAU
Former U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger was
awarded an honorary degree
of Doctor of Philosophy of Tel
Aviv University, in a
ceremony held at the Univ-
ersity during Dr. Kiss-
inger's recent visit to Israel,
announced Lauren Azoulai,
the executive director of the
South Florida office of the
American Friends of Tel Aviv
University. The degree was
conferred by the University
President, Professor Moshe
Many, and the Rector, Pro-
fessor Yehuda Ben-Shaul.
According to the citation
read at the ceremony, Dr.
Kissinger was honored for
distinguished scholarly
achievement, for his role in
laying the groundwork for
peace between Israel and
Egypt, and for his continuing
influential and dominant role
in world affairs.
Professor Many and Ben-
Shaul, as well as the chairman
of the University's Board of
Governors, Sir Leslie Porter,
and Economy Minister Gad
Ya'acobi, praised Dr. Kiss-
inger for his role as negotiator
in the Arab-Israeli conflict,
especially his efforts to con-
clude the Israel-Egypt
agreements following the Yom
Goldsteins to
Leave USSR
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ) has confirmed
that Isai and Grigory Goldstein
of Tbilisi have been given per-
mission to leave the Soviet
Union. They are expected to
go to Israel. The Goldsteins
were among the founders of
the present-day repatriation
movement among Soviet Jews.
The Goldsteins, both of
whom are physicists, have
been refuseniks since 1971.
Over the years, they were
periodically harassed and
questioned by the KGB.
Grigory, the older of the two
brothers, was arrested for
"parasitism" in 1978 and
sentenced*to one year in a
labor camp. Although fired
from their jobs, they have been
working as television
repairmen and in other related
technical jobs.
Recently the brothers,
together with Isai's family,

mother, were on a list of 19

Dr. Kissinger said that the real
honor belongs to the
statesmen of the Middle East,
who had the courage to act in
the cause of peace.
Noting the presence of
Egyptian Ambassador Charge
de'Affaires Mohamed Abdel
Aziz Bassiony in the audience,
Dr. Kissinger said that the
peace process has made ex-
traordinary advances, even
though much remains to be
done. Bassiony's presence
would have been "a distant
dream a decade ago," he said.
Outlining some of the cur-
rent obstacles to the continua-
lsrael's neighbors could take

ficult choices." He suggested
that "partial agreements,"

JCDS Students Participate In
Temple Beth David Shabbat
On Friday evening, Feb. 8,
the students of the Jewish
Community Day School whose
families belong to Temple Beth
David were honored by par-
ticipating in services and shar-
ing their thoughts about Shab-
bat and Torah with the
One of the participants,
Shawron Weingarten, made
this observation. "I thought it
was nice that the Rabbi chose
the JCDS students to read a
part from Shabbat Friday
night services, and it was an
honor to read our thoughts
about Shabbat and the weekly
Mrs. Barbara Steinberg, ex-
ecutive director of the JCDS,
spoke on the topic, "Education
as a Jewish Pursuit." Rabbi
William Marder of Temple
Beth David officiated.
Children from Temple Beth David who attend the Jewish
Community Day School and who participated in Shabbat ser-
vices are Adam LeRoy, Ira Weissberger, Shawron We-
ingarten, Mariana Kay, Jeffrey Weissberger, Joshua LeRoy,
and Michael Marcus.
Following services he said,
"I felt the congregation in
general was very impressed
with the quality of Jewish lear-
ning and Hebrew knowledge
on the part of the Day School
students. On a personal note, I
felt is was important to make
the connection in the minds of
the children between their
Temple and their school."
Hussein-Arafat Rift
Continued from Page 1
ween Hussein and the PLO is
"something to rejoice over,"
he added.
Rabin stressed in his televi-
sion appearance that he spoke
"as Minister of Defense, the
man in charge of the ter-
ritories, in appealing to die
Palestinians in the territories
to come forward and, together
with Hussein, negotiate with
Israel." He called Hussein's
speech "an opening to peace."
Rabin observed, "If only five
or six West Bank figures

leadership call, realizing that
the PLO has consistently foil-
ed peace efforts, this would br-
ing a breakthrough. What are
they waiting for? A miracle?
Here is a golden opportunity,"
Rabin declared.
In private conversations
later he said West Bank
Palestinian leaders will have to
admit the PLO has led them in-
to a dead end. "I hope they will
come forward now and say this
publicly and move ahead
without the PLO," he said.
The off-and-on negotiations
between Hussein and Arafat,
encouraged by the United
States during the past year,
and similar contacts over the
last few years were aimed at
finding a formula by which
Jordan and the PLO could
negotiate with Israel on behalf
of the Palestinian people. A
minimal condition, insisted on
by Israel and the U.S., was
PLO acceptance of United Na-
tions Security Council Resolu-
tions 242 and 338 which would
imply recognition of Israel and
renunciation of terrorism.
Hussein said he told Arafat
last October that he needed a
written agreement to the
American conditions. "Hing-
ing on this agreement, of
course, was an immediate
opening of an American-
Palestinian dialogue on the
basis of which we would have
continued our efforts for con-
vening an international peace
conference, to which the PLO
would be invited to participate
as a representative of the
Palestinian people," Hussein
"But our brethren in the
Palestinian leadership surpris-
ed us by refusing to accept
Security Council Resolution
242" even though American
assurances "met the PLO's re-
quirements'' and "reflected a
significant change in the
United States position" by ac-
cepting a PLO role in peaceful
talks, Hussein said. "Thus
came to an end another
chapter in the search for
peace," the Jordanian
monarch declared.
Yet Hussein's speech was
not "a final divorce*' from the
PLO, but rather "a move
designed to challenge the
PLO's claim to exclusive
representation of the Palesti-
nians," according to Tel avw
University's Prof. Asher
Suser, a leading Israeli
political analyst.
"He does not want to slam
the door completely on the
PLO, but he wants to create
new conditions in which
cooperation with the PLO,
together with forces from in-
side the territories, would
erode the PLO's exclusivity,"
Susser said.
He noted that Hussein, in
fact, reaffirmed Jordan's ac-
ceptance of the 1974 Arab
League summit conference,
decision in Rabat, Morocco,
that the PLO is the sole,
legitimate representative of
the Palestinian people.

Letter To The Editor
Continued from Pag* 4
tion for the role the County
Commission is playing keeping
alive the Wallenberg Story.
We must remember Raoul
Wallenberg. The World must
remember him. It would be fit-
ting and proper that the next
Nobel Prize should be an
Award To Raoul Wallenberg.
The Raoul Wallenberg
Commission of
Palm Beach County
Temple Beth Zion signed a
construction contract Monday,
Feb. 3 with Grana Construc-
tion of Hollywood for their
home. Site preparation is ex-
pected to start soon, and the
building should be completed
in time for the High Holidays.
Phase I is a structure of
5,500 square feet exclusive of
the entrance portico. It will
contain the social hall,
classrooms, rabbi's study, of-
fice and kitchen. The social
hall will also be used as a Sanc-
tuary until the main Sanctuary
is completed in Phase II at a
later date.
The planners and engineers
for this project are Ronald M.
Ash and Associates of West
Palm Beach and Providence,
R.I. The architect is Alan
Strassler of Palm Beach
An artist's rendering shows plans for the two-phase building
project being undertaken by Temple Beth Zion.
The land for the Temple at
125 Sparrow Drive was
donated 'by the developers,
Royal Palm Beach Colony. It is
situated just south of the police
and fire complex on Royal
Palm Beach Blvd.
The program to build the
Temple started in May 1983.
The conceptual design was ap-
proved by the congregation in
October 1984 and final ap-
proval was given in January
The building committee
members are Nat Crandall,
Beatrice Mishkit, Joe Rivin,
Bill Rachles, Irving Greenspan
and Sherry Ehrenfeld.
