Bombing Attempt Foiled
Palm Beach Hi-Rise
Campaign Raises
$1.6 Million
In praising the dedication
and diligence of the Palm
Beach Council of the 1986
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County/United Jewish
Appeal campaign, Arnold L.
Lampert, general chairman,
announced that this year's
highly successful hi-rise cam-
paign in Palm Beach raised
$1.6 million.
"This figure represents an
outstanding 50 percent in-
crease over last year," said
Lampert, and he emphasized
that the $1.6 million figure
does not include gifts to the
Federation/UJA campaign
which were received from
Palm Beach residents not liv-
ing in hi-rise buildings.
"We were able to organize
sue cocktail events this year,
twice as many as last year,"

many more Palm Beach
residents than in the past, and
this year's campaign totals
reflect the highly effective
educational programs organiz-
ed by the Palm Beach
Lampert also noted that the
first-ever minimum gift event
in a Palm Beach hi-rise was
held this year at the Mayfair
House. "I hope this kind of
event becomes a tradition in
Palm Beach," he said.

young woman was arrested
at Heathrow Airport last
Thursday morning after at-
tempting to board an El Al
747 airliner with a large
amount of plastic
The woman, in her 20's,
described as of "European
appearance," was seizwl by
police after the explosives
were found concealed in her
luggage at the El Al check-
in counter in a secluded part
of the airport's terminal,
which was immediately
cleared of all passengers. A
man who was thought to be
with her ran off before he
could be detained. He was
described as of "Middle
Eastern" appearance.
The woman, who was not
immediately identified, was
trying to board Flight
LY016 bound for Tel Aviv
which arrived here from
New York. After the ex-
plosives were discovered in
a false bottom of a suitcase
tagged for the aircraft's
cargo hold, flights out of
Heathrow were suspended
for about 4 V2 hours.
Police Superintendent
Stewart Higgins said the ex-
plosives, weighing about 10
to 20 pounds, contained a
timing device "that could
have been set to explode at
any time." He credited an
El Al security guard with
averting a tragedy at the
airport. Higgins said the
guard "wasn t happy with
the appearance of the lug-
gage. It appears it was
discovered through the keen
eye of El Al security." Bag-
gage handlers said the
woman was only about 30
yards from boarding the El
Al plane when the discovery
of the explosives was made.
Later in the day, British
police disclosed that the ex-
plosives were intended to
destroy the aircraft shortly
after it left the airport. They
said it would have killed the
more than 400 passengers
and crew aboard and could
have caused many casualties
on the ground. Police also
said that the woman who
carried the concelead ex-
plosives may have been ig-
norant of the contents of the
luggage given to her by the
man who fled. She herself
had said after she was de-
tained that the man had ask-
ed her to do him a favor and
to take the luggage with her
to Tel Aviv.
The incident heightened
fears that Britain as well the
United Staes will become
the target of renewed ter-
rorist incidents following
the U.S. air strike against
Libya. The Heathrow Air-
port incident coincided with
Thursday morning's rocket
attacks on the British Am-
bassador's residence in west
Beirut and the discovery of
three bodies believed to be
those of kidnapped Britons.
Cabinet Crisis Resolved
Switch Involves Modai And Nissim
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Cabinet approved an exchange of portfolios
last week that preserves the Labor-Likud unity coalition government and the
prestige of Premier Shimon Peres. The climactic session lasted two minutes.
The week-long crisis which threatened to bring down the 19-month-old
government was resolved by having Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai switch jobs
with Justice Minister Moshe Nissim.
Modai and Nissim are both Likud Liberals and each admits freely that he has
neither experience nor expertise in the other's job. But the unlikely Cabinet shuf-
fle was the only way to satisfy Peres who had announced that he intended to fire
Modai. Had he done so, in violation of the coalition agreement, Likud would have
had no choice but to leave the government. Peres, for his part, could not and
would not back away from his insistence that Modai leave tne Treasury.
An earlier formula which would have had Modai switch portfolios with
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir was rejected by Peres because Modai would
have returned to the Treasury when Shamir becomes Prime Minister after the
rotation of power next October 13.
The rotation of power, only six months away, spurred Likud to pressure
Modai and Nissim to accept the exchange which neither of them likes. Nissim, by
his own testimony, never in his "wildest dreams" expected to take over respon-
sibility for Israel s shaky economy.
He was prevailed upon to accept it by two young Likud MKs, Ehud Olmert
and Dan Meridor, who argued the case for preserving the coalition. Even so, he
did not agree before consulting his wife, Ruth. Modai, too, was reluctant to give
up the Treasury where he achieved considerable success. His economic austerity
program is credited with reducing the rate of inflation to single digits for the
first time in years.
But Peres wanted him out because of remarks published in newspaper inter-
views recently which the Premier construed as deliberate attacks on government
policy by Modai.

Jewish Leaders Hail
U.S. Action Against Libya
Israel's leaders are hailing
America's punitive air raids on
Libya as an act of self-defense
against international ter-
rorism, but they express
repeatedly that Israel was in
no way involved and had no ad-
vance knowledge of U.S.
Premier Shimon Peres,
questioned by reporters while
visiting Nazareth, said he does
not know yet what results the
American action might have,
but "I know the reasons for it.
Libya was undoubtedly behind
the bombing of American
soldiers at the discotheque in
(West) Berlin, and it doesn't
surprise me that the United
States takes steps in its own
self defense," Peres said.
zhak Rabin told reporters after
an appearance at the Hebrew
University that the U.S. action
in Libya was "a determined
and daring action against a
country which took the lead in
the encouragement, finance
and support of international
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir said in an Israel Radio
interview that the American
action was an act of defense of
the U.S. and the free world
against international
"It is clear to everybody that
terrorism can succeed only
when it has the support of
countries like Libya, Syria and
others, and if we want to put
an end to terrorism we have to
punish these countries and to
convince them to change their
way of action in this regard,"
the Likud leader said.
BUT EXCEPT for Britain,
Israel was alone among
America's allies in expressing
unqualified support for the
U.S. air strike. It was deplored
even by the moderate Arab
states, including Egypt which
has long considered Libyan
leader Moammar Khadafy a
Peres said he "reserved
judgment" when asked if he
thought the U.S. action went
far enough toward eliminating
terrorist acts such as the
discotheque bombing, the bom-
bing of a TWA airliner over
Greece, and the machinegun
and grenade attacks on the
Rome and Vienna airports last
December, all of which the
Reagan Administration claims
were masterminded by
Responding to a condemna-
tion of the air strike by
Nazareth's Communist Mayor
Tewfik Zayyad, Peres asked
what else did he expect the
Americans to do when they
had proof that Khadafy was
planning to kill more
Americans, "sit back and
praise the Lord?" Asked to
comment on the Soviet charge
of State-sponsored terrorism
by the U.S., Peres remarked,
"The USSR has a language of
its own."
he said, "We were not invited
(to participate in the air
strike), and we played no role
in it." He warned, however,
that Libyan and Palestinian
terrorism would not solve
anything. "The Palestinians
are not our enemies, and Israel
is interested in solving the
Palestinian problem through
negotiations," he said.
Rabin, too, stressed that the
strike at Libya "was an
American action. Israel was
not involved and was not
notified about it." But, he add-
ed, "It is an attempt to deal
with the sources of terrorism,
not only with those who carry
it out."
"Therefore, as a matter of
principle, I believe that every
country that believes that
something has to be done
against international ter-
rorism, in coordination with
the democratic free world,
should come and say that it is a
justified action," Rabin said.
He dismissed concern that a
world war could evolve from
the American action.
MEANWHILE, the Foreign
Ministers of the 12 member
states of the European
Economic Community (EEC)
met in Paris last Thursday to
evaluate the consequences of
the American air strike. Ac-
cording to Western diplomats,
a majority of the 12 with the
notable exception of Britain
are opposed to the raid and
hope to convince he
Americans to abstain from fur-
their military actions against

Project Renewal Chair Assesses Future Of Hod HaSharon
"I saw a whole new deter-
mination among the communi-
ty leaders in Giora and Gil
Amal," commented Marva
Perrin, Project Renewal
chairperson for the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, upon her recent
return from a budget consulta-
tion with Project Renewal
directors, professional staff
and community leaders.
"We in Palm Beach County
have helped lay a good founda-
tion, and with a few more
years of support the residents
of our twinned neighborhoods
will be on an equal footing with
their peers in Hod HaSharon,"
she concluded.
Along with Project Renewal
leaders from the South
Broward Jewish Federation,
Mrs. Perrin met with Ziona
Kemelman, Project Renewal
director in Hod HaSharon;
Elizabeth Homans, our com-
munity's Project Renewal
liaison; and Rafi Amichai, the
Project's regional director.
"The budget process con-
sisted partly of program-to-
program and building-to-
building visits, during which
professional staff discussed
their budgetary requirements
and their concerns about the
gradual phase-out of diaspora
financial participation over the
next few years," Mrs. Perrin
For the American par-
ticipants, one highlight of the
budget consultations was a
meeting between the elected
community leaders of Giora
and Gil Amal and Mayor
Eliyahu Shimoni of Hod
"It was significant that this
time the Mayor came to us,"
Mrs. Perrin said. "We went
over the budget line by line,
and the Mayor was very recep-
tive," she continued, noting
that the municipalities which
are partners in Project
Renewal have accepted the
responsibility to maintain Pro-
ject Renewal buildings and to
take over at least a portion of
the programming budget.
Mrs. Perrin then joined Pro-
ject directors in final budget
consultations with Gideon
Witkon, Project Renewal's
general director, at the Jewish
Agency offices in Jerusalem.
"We took the rough-hewn
budget worked out in Hod
HaSharon and put the
finishing touches on with Mr.
Witkon," Mrs. Perrin said.
She added that a long-range
plan for our community's par-
ticipation in Project Renewal
up to 1990 is in the works.
Marva Perrin
"This is a plan for the transi-
tion and phase-out of diaspora
funding, Mrs. Perrin em-
phasized, "and it will not call
for an increase in our com-
munity's overall commitment,
but will rather extend the com-
mitment already made over a
longer period of time."
The evolution of capable
community leadership in the
once-alienated neighborhoods
of Giora and Gil Amal was the
element of the budget process
Jeanne Glasser To Chair
Chaplain Aide Program
Capping seven years of ser-
vice as a member of the Jewish
Federation Chaplain Aide Pro-
gram, Jeanne Glasser was
named chairperson by Federa-
tion Chaplain, Rabbi Alan R.
Sherman. Rabbi Sherman also
appointed Nettie Stein and
Sylvia Berger co-chairpersons.
Glasser served as Chaplain
Aide co-chair since 1981 and
succeeds Nathan Alweiss, who
has served as chairman of the
program for two years. She
has been active in Chaplain
Aide affairs since the inception
of the Chaplaincy in 1979,
recruiting volunteers and con-
ducting services with Chaplain
Aide Ilse Mollen at various
health facilities. Previously,
with her late husband Louis,
Glasser helped found a com-
munity Friday Shabbat Candle
Lighting Service for nursing
and retirement homes.
Glasser and her family pro-
vided the funds for a Sabbath
Prayer Book especially design-
ed for use in homes for the ag-
ed. The book, dedicated in
memory of her husband, has
served as a model for other
Jewish communities in the
United States and was named
the Best Special Publication in
1982 by the Council of Jewish
Since 1976 when the
Glassers arrived in Palm
Beach from Tyler. Texas,
Jeanne has been among the
busiest ladies in the Palm
Beach Jewish community. Her
present activities include
membership on the board of

Co-chair Sylvia Berger and
her husband Sidney are active
at Morse Geriatric Center and
other nursing homes. Berger is
a member of the Jewish
Federation Community Rela-
tions Council, the Soviet
Jewry Task Force, the
Regional executive board of
Women's American ORT and a

Bergers came to Palm Reach
from New Jersey.
Co-chair Nettie Stein is

Women's American ORT. She
is a volunteer member of
Jewish Family and Children's
Service, making visitations to
shut-ins. In addition to her
Chaplain Aide work with her

In recognition of their work
for the elderly, members of the
Chaplain Aide Program have
been invited by the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County to a luncheon to be
held at the Joseph L. Morse
Geriatric Center on Monday,
May 5. The Chaplain Aides will
be presented with Certificates

ment will be provided by pro-

that most impressed Mrs.
"By attending leadership
development seminars and
courses in budgeting and book-
keeping, community represen-
tatives from both
neighborhoods are learning
how to work effectively with
their peers and with the
political system," said the Pro-
ject Renewal chairperson.
"Just as significant is the
fact that these leaders, who
emerged from neighborhoods
once completely disenfranchis-
ed from Hod HaSharon, are
learning about the rather com-
plex funding and allocation
structure .. and they are
beginning to understand
where to go when they need
Mrs. Perrin added that the
vision of these community
leaders is also expanding.
"They are beginning to see
beyond the here-and-now, and
are starting to think in terms
of long-range goals. They
know that they will have to
stand on their own in a few
years, and they realize the im-
portance of developing strong
community leadership, just as
we do in Palm Beach County."
Mrs. Perrin also marveled at
the dedication of the profes-
sional staff who run Project
Renewal's very successful
educational and social
"The professionals work
very well with each other, and
without exception they have
seen wonderful results in all
areas. Their present concern is
how to handle the phase-out
now that their programs are
thriving. The professional
staff is planning right now to
make cuts in an effort to
prepare for the future."
Noting that the people-to-
people relationship initiated by
Project Renewal transcends
fiscal matters, Mrs. Perrin ad-
ded that programming staffers
in Giora and Gil Amal are anx-
ious to establish closer ties
with professionals in Palm
Beach County.
"The potential for such
cooperation is great," said
Mrs. Perrin. "Giora and Gil
Amal are experiencing many
of the same community
challenges we are, and a more
intimate connection would
benefit both communities."
Emphasizing other
possibilities of citizen-to-
citizen relationships, Mrs. Per-
rin noted that the senior
citizens in Gil Amal, who will
soon be utilizing the Ribakoff
Senior Center, the ground-
breaking for which is schedul-
ed this summer, are making a
large wall-hanging to decorate
our community's Morse
Geriatric Center. Mrs. Perrin
also pointed out that an
epistolary friendship has been
established between the sixth

At AIPAC Conference
Kennedy, Heinz Speak On Middle East
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D.,
Mass.), in a banquet address to
the recent AIPAC policy con-
ference, praised the American
pro-Israel community for be-
ing active "in one of the
noblest causes of our times or
all time the security,
freedom and future of the
state of Israel and the people
of Israel." Sen. John Heinz
(R., Pa.), the other featured
speaker, proclaimed that
"Israel's struggle is a struggle
forever bound together with
that of the United States for
freedom, democracy, dignity
and peace." Both voiced con-
tinued support for the rights of
Soviet Jewry, including the
right to emigrate to Israel.
Kennedy and Heinz were the
principal Senate sponsors of a
resolution opposing the Ad-
ministration's $1.9 billion Jor-
dan arms sale. Seventy-four
Senators signed the resolu-
tion, causing the Aministra-
tion to put the sale on hold.
Kennedy welcomed the deci-
sion by Jordan's King Hussein
"to abandon his nefarious pact
with the PLO. It is possible to
find encouragement in the
King's long overdue embrace
of a fundamental truth in the
Middle East, that it is impossi-
ble to negotiate with a ruthless
terrorist like Yasir Arafat. ..
The time has now come for
King Hussein to stop talking
about peace in the abstract and
start talkir..? with Israel direct-
ly at the conference table."
In addition to threats from
PLO terrorists and "madmen
like Khadafy," Kennedy cited
a second danger to an Arab-
Israeli peace process
"another unacceptable round
of arms sales" by the Ad-
ministration to the Middle
East. "Instead of trafficking
recklessly in numbers like
F-15, F-16 and F-20 (designa-
tions of advanced U.S. war
planes)" the Administration
"should be tirelessly pursuing
the two most important
numbers in the Middle East
UN Resolutions 242 and 338."
Kennedy asserted that
"Israel has made its choice for
peace, and it is time for die
Arab nations to do the
same ... Israel has returned
the Sinai to Egypt. It's time
for Egypt to send its am-
bassador back to Israel." And
he quoted his brother, Presi-
dent John Kennedy, who on
Israel's eighth birthday in
1956 said the Jewish state
would "live to see an 80th, and
an 800th, for peace is all Israel
Heinz, referring to the
Carter Administration's vote
for an anti-Israel resolution at
the UN, stressed the "restora-
tion" of U.S.-Israel ties under
the Reagan Administration's
economic and defense policies,
Heinz said that a stronger
America is able to be a
stronger friend of Israel. He
cited the ground-breaking
Free Trade Agreement bet-
ween the two countries, the
$1.5 billion supplemental aid
program which assisted in
Israel's economic recovery,
and strategic defense coopera-
tion between the two nations
"unique outside of our formal
alliances such as NATO."
Heinz said that good U.S.
relations with many Middle
Eastern states are essential to
help promote the peace pro-
In Light Of Cuts
Service Agencies Discuss
Future Funding
In a unified effort to prepare
for imminent cuts in the
federal budget which will
significantly affect the
delivery of social services in
Palm Beach County, the Ad
Hoc Coalition for Human Ser-
vices, of which the Jewish
Federation's Community Rela-
tions Council is a founding
member, met last week to
discuss ways to deal with the
funding crisis.
Buddie Brenner, steering
committee coordinator for the
coalition which includes 185
human and social service agen-
cies, said, "It's devastating
because a great deal of what
has been accomplished over
the years is about to be wiped
out.' Brenner's fears were
echoed by county government
and health officials who said
that budget restrictions impos-
ed by the Gramm-Rudman act
will severely cut and possibly
eliminate some services.
Dr. Lance DeHaven Smith,
associate director of the
Florida Atlantic University-
Florida International Univer-
sity Joint Center for En-
vironmental and Urban Pro-
blems, noted that approx-
imately 3 percent of the
population in South Florida
will soon be living at or below
the poverty level for three con-

like military and economic aid
to Egypt and economic aid to
Jordan, "to help those who
move the peace process for-

Heinz said U.S. Middle East
policy should rest on four main
points: close moral and
strategic relations with Israel;
no negotiations with terrorists
and insistence that "the other
side must renounce terror,
recognize Israel and its right
to exist and acceptance of UN
Resolutions 242 and 338
before negotiations begin; that
only direct negotiations bet-
ween Arab and Israelis can
lead to lasting peace, and that
the U.S. cannot buy peace with
arms sales. Taken together,
these four principles
guarantee the survival of
Israel behind secure and
recognized borders.

Strong U.S.-Israel Ties Create 'Revolutionary Era'
Fnday-. April 2;V1J*86
Volume 12
' .aiiin l>
Number 17
Not only is the relationship
between the United States and
Israel "excellent," it has
entered "a revolutionary era"
in which the ties are being in-
stitutionalized to survive
changes in Administrations
and to continue to grow.
Thomas A. Dine, executive
director of AIPAC, described
the new level of relations in an
April 6 speech to the organiza-
tion's annual policy con-
ference. Dine asserted that
President Ronald Reagan and
Secretary of State George
Shultz "are going to leave a
legacy that will be important
to Israel's security for decades
to come."
Citing the Secretary of
State, Dine said that institu-
tional arrangements are being
built now to solidify close
U.S.-Israel ties, even if a
future Secretary does not
wholly concur. AIPAC's ex-
ecutive director emphasized
that "the old order in which
Israel was regarded as a liabili-
ty, a hindrance to America's
relationship with the Arab
world, a loud and naughty
child that order has crumbl-
ed. In its place, a new relation-
ship is being built, one in which
Israel is treated as and acts
as an ally, not just a friend,
an asset rather than a liability,
a mature and capable partner,
not some vassal state.
As evidence of the revolu-
tion in the relationship, Dine
pointed to the U.S.-Israel
strategic cooperation agree-
ment, including joint military
exercises and pre-positioning
of military equipment in
Israel. Such a connection
"sends a strong deterrent
signal to radical forces in the
Arab world and to the Soviet
Union. It tells them that any
thought they might have had
about driving a wedge bet-
ween the U.S. and Israel,
about isolating the Jewish
state in order to destroy it, is
Dine said that strategic
cooperation will increase
Israel's access to "the most ad-
vanced American
technologies, crucial when the
few face the many."
He said that "a similar pro-
cess is taking place in the
economic arena." The Free
Trade Area agreement gives
Israel important economic ad-
vantages in trading with the
United States, and with Com-
mon Market nations as well,
Dine explained. Although the
benefits will take some years
to materialize fully, "this trea-
ty will have an enormous ef-
fect on Israel's export
Also testifying to the change
have been the shift in U.S.
military and economic aid to
Israel from part loans and part
grants to all grants under the
Reagan Administration, sup-
plemental economic aid during
Israel's economic reform pro-
gram and Administration ad-
vice on recovery, and firmer
diplomatic support for Israel.
This goes "beyond defending
Israel to actively opposing and
undermining the anti-Israel ef-
forts of the Arabs.
"We are in the midst of a
revolution that is raising
U.S.-Israel relations to new
heights. In the process, a
whole new constituency of sup-
port for Israel is being built
"in precisely the area where
we are weakest among of-
ficials in the State, Defense
and Treasury departments, in
the CIA, in science, trade,
agriculture and other agen-
cies." These officials "are now
learning, through personal ex-
perience, the value of Israel to
the United States" and they
are tho people "rti [eatable for
W-fESjaTj p"l;"y (l1> ,M
plementing it."
But Dine warned against
complacency, noting that
revolution in relations "has on-
ly just begun. The gains are
not yet secure." He noted that
Congress, reflecting "Israel's
standing among the people of
America," remains "the
bedrock of the U.S.-Israel rela-
tionship." He stressed the
Congressional role in securing
"the most generous Israel aid
package ever" and the impor-
tance of Congress in blocking
arms sales to Arab countries
still hostile to Israel.
Dine explained AIPAC's dif-
ficult decision not to actively
battle the scaled-down $354
million sale of anti-aircraft and
anti-ship missiles to Saudi
Arabia. He said a variety of
military experts concluded
that "this package would add
little of consequence to the ex-
isting overall threat to Israel"
and that numerous major
Jewish organizations "felt we
would not be justified in moun-
ting a major campaign to con-
front the Administation's
policy in this particular case."
Underlying the organiza-
tion's success in Washington,
Dine said, was the commit-
ment of its members, its
grassroots work in Congres-
sional districts across the
country and its young leader-
ship development program. He
lauded the presence of more
than 500 pro-Israel college ac-
tivists the largest ever to at-
tend a policy conference. And
he praised AIPAC members in
general, "Jews and Christians,
young and old, white and
black, liberals and conser-
vatives, Democrats and
Republicans," working
through the American political
process "to expand, to deepen,
to enhance the partnership

A Promise For The Future
The Endowment Fund of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
Supporting Foundations
Endowment Director
In our last column, we spoke
in detail about the burgeoning
growth in the number of
Philanthropic Funds within
the Endowment portfolios of
federations nationally. Some
comparisons were drawn to
the advantage of establishing a
Philanthropic Fund over a
Private Foundation. It would
be appropriate for this follow-
up column to present some
comparisons between the
Private Foundation and
another endowment vehicle
which we have spoken about in
detail previously, the Suppor-
ting Foundation. The sum-
mary contained here reflects
statutory changes made by the
tax reform act of 1984. It is
based on the current state of
the law and does not take into
account any changes which
might be forthcoming from
pending tax reform legislation.
1. No 2 percent excise tax on
the investment of a Suppor-
ting Foundation.
2. Contributions of any type
of long-term appreciated pro-
perty to a Supporting Founda-
tion, including closely held
stock, are deductible to the ex-
tent of 30 percent of the
donor's "contribution base."
3. Contributions of cash to a
Supporting Foundation are
deductible to the extent of 50
percent of the donor's con-
tribution base.
4. A Supporting Foundation
can hold a significant interest
in any business, including the
donor's business.
5. Transactions between the
Supporting Foundation and
the donor or related parties
(including entities controlled
by the donor) are permissible,
provided that transactions are
at arm's length and are
reasonable. (For example,
stock owned by a Supporting
Foundation may be redeemed
by a corporation controlled by
the donor; a Supporting Foun-
dation may purchase stock
from the donor's estate and
may sell stock to members of
the donor's family.)
6. Costs of operating a Sup-
porting Foundation may be
reduced when a federation
assumes administrative
responsibility for its operation.
7. Restrictions on a Suppor-
ting Foundation's investment
activities are less stringent
than those applicable to a
private foundation.
8. A Supporting Foundation
controlled by a federation may
accumulate income for a
reasonable period for future
charitable projects; no specific
annual payout requirement.
9. Participation of the
federation's representatives
on the board of the Supporting
Foundation helps to assure
continuity and operation in a
consistent manner and helps to
provide guidance to younger
Generation members of the
onor's family who become
members of the board.
10. A Supporting Founda-
tion is in the more favored
"public charity" category and
is less likely to be subject to
adverse tax legislation in the

Supporting Foundation might
be appropriate for you and
your family, please contact me

matter in further detail at
A Passover Message
Passover message, Howard I.
Friedman, president of the
American Jewish Committee,
stated that terrorists must be
found and thwarted, whether
they operate abroad or in the
United States.
"Even in our own country,"
Mr. Friedman said, "there are
those who identify themselves
with the destroyers, who seek
to pit religion against religion,
race against race, the native
against the foreign-born."
He added: "We must never
stop seeking to bring about
freedom complete and
unrestrained wherever it is .
Among the things that Jews
have to be thankful for in the
year 5746, Mr. Friedman said,
were the release of Anatoly
Shcharansky from the Soviet
Union; the U.S. ratification of
the Genocide Convention; the
emigration of 14,000 Ethio-
pian Jews to Israel, and the
posthumous pardon of Leo
Frank, who was lynched in
Georgia in 1913 for a crime of
which he was innocent.
Remarking that
"lawlessness still haunts the
world," Mr. Friedman said:
"We cannot lessen our efforts
on behalf of Israel's security
because we know she is sur-
rounded by remorseless
enemies who live only for her
destruction. They have allies
both outspoken and hidden
and we cannot stop listening
for the watchmen's voices."

Keeping Track Of JCDS Alumni
Where have all our
graduates gone? What are
they doing now? Since 1977,
when the Jewish Community
Day School had its first
graduating class, our school
has sent close to 100 young
people off to various area high

UJA To Sponsor National Tour
Of Auschwitz Exhibition
NEW YORK The United
Jewish Appeal announced
recently that it has signed an
agreement with the Polish
government to provide for a
two-year nationwide tour of
Holocaust artifacts and other
documents under UJA
The agreement, which was a
major goal of UJA National
Chairman Alex Grass, was
achieved in association with
the World Jewish Congress
and provides for a tour of
materials from the Auschwitz
State Museum.
The exhibition is called,
"Auschwitz: Crimes Against
Mankind." It consists of 80
items such as suitcases, human
hair, oven parts and 135
photographic panels. The ex-
hibition was on display at the
United Nations this winter in
commemoration of Human
Rights Day, and was seen by
70,000 persons. The exhibi-
tion, which was organized in
Poland by the Auschwitz State
Museum and the International
Auschwitz Committee, tells
the tragic story of the
Auschwitz death camp in
Poland from 1940 until its
liberation by Alliled troops in
The agreement, however,
represents two further ad-
vances in the ongoing UJA ef-
fort to ensure that the realities
of the Holocaust are never
forgotten so as to prevent the
possiblity of a recurrence.
"Unlike the exhibition as
displayed at the UN," Grass
said, "the display from now on
will be accompanied by a
catalog completely revised for
us in which the Polish govern-
ment recognizes the centrality
of the Jewish tragedy in the
Holocuast. That is, the Polish
government agrees that while
others died in the Holocaust, it
was an organized, methodical
let me add, evil program
to kill all the Jews in Europe.
Six million Jews died including
one million children only for
the fact that they were Jewish.
"Second, this exhibition will
be brought to communities
across the U.S., and placed in
museums and other public
areas so that all Americans,
Jews and non-Jews, especially
those too young to remember
the Holocaust, will know it
really happened, that it was
horrific and that it could
happen again."
"By sponsoring this exhibi-
tion," Grass added, "we are
enabling people who cannot
visit Yad Vashem in Jerusalem
or the site of Auschwitz in
Poland to directly experience
the reality and impact of a con-
centration camp whose very
name has become synonymous
with Nazi crimes and Jewish
Grass added that in addition
many Americans would
understand more about Israel
and its importance to all Jews
when they recognize that
Israel rose from the ashes of
the Holocaust to guarantee all

Interfaith Freedom Seder Held Outside the

SAN FRANCISCO (JTA) Under the watchful view of
Soviet surveillance equipment, an interfaith group of local
clergy staged a "Freedom Seder" last Tuesday outside the
Soviet Consualte here. The seder included a fully set
Passover table in the street directly in front of the Con-
sualte gates.
"G-d hears the cries of Soviet Jews and we must also,'
said the Rev. Emil Authelet, north coastal area minister of
the American Baptist Churches of the West. "Yet His cry

Anti-Israel Films Flooding U.S.
Anti-Israel films produced by
the PLO some of them using
themes and footage from Nazi
anti-Semitic films are
flooding college campuses,
private clubs and church
froups across the United
tates, a leading Israeli expert
on propaganda said recently.
More than 400 of the films,
offered as documentaries and
entertainment, have been pro-
duced and distributed by the
PLO since 1972, reported
Baruch Gitlis, director of the
Harry Karren Institute for
Propaganda Analysis and
senior lecturer in the
gsychology of propaganda at
ar-Ilan University in Ramat
Gan, Israel.
Gitlis showed and analyzed a
number of PLO films and ex-
cerpts from others at public
seminars here at the conclu-
sion of a six-city tour spon-
sored by the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America. The seminars
at Cleveland State Universi-
ty, the Sheraton Hotel in
Beachwood and at Case
Western Reserve University
are designed to teach par-
ticipants how to counter anti-
Israel, anti-Semitic and anti-
Zionist propaganda.
The PLO films, which run
from five to 45 minutes, in-
clude some that incorporate
Nazi-produced footage. One,
for example, makes use of clips
from "The Eternal Jew," an
infamous anti-Semitic film
made during the Hitler era.
Gitlis recently conducted a
four-day international con-
ference on Nazi propaganda
films at Bar-Ilan University,
and is showing excerpts from
some of them on his current
The U.S. seminars include
showings of the 1982
"Memories and Fire," a catchy
five-minute salute to the PLO
made expressly for American
audiences, and "The Making of
a Revolutionary," which runs
11 minutes and consists only of
music and image, thus
eliminating the need for multi-
language narration or
"The PLO films are
sophisticated and of good
technical quality," Gitlis said,
"and they are extremely effec-
tive among audiences that
don't know the true historical
facts. Although some films use
Nazi film clips, the propaganda
line employed by the PLO is a
product of the Kremlin."
At the ZOA seminars, Gitlis
also discussed the image of
Israel projected by American
TV networks. He declared:
"Most Americans form their
opinions about nations, people,
issues and events from what
they see and hear on televi-
sion, so it is not surprising that
millions of U.S. citizens con-
sider Israel a belligerent,
racist, cruel and oppressisve
state. This distorted and un-
warranted view is largely the
result of the presentation of
Israel, in words and pictures,
that viewers derive from wat-
ching the major networks."
Gitlis observed that the view
of Israel as a "swaggering
tough guy with little concern
for the rights and feelings of
Arabs living under its thumb"
has been especially evident
since the war in Lebanon. He
says, however, that the anti-
Israel picture projected by the
networks began nearly 20
years ago, "when TV stepped
up its coverage of the Middle
East and decided that it would
give 'both sides of the story.' "

"This is only the beginning,"
said Shimshon Welner, the
energetic manager of the pro-

winemaking in Israel until now
has been "old fashioned" and
likens the excellent grape-

be planted there. The rocky,
volcanic soil combined with the
cool summers and plentiful
sunshine provided perfect con-
ditions for an excellent wine
grape, he said. Welner,
together with a group of kib-
butzim, took the advice.
By 1981, using sophisticated
agricultural technology in-
cluding drip irrigation, they
started looking around for a
way to turn their bountiful
crops into wine.
The first efforts were
discouraging, if not disastrous.
Large Israeli wine consor-
tiums refused to pay a
premium price for the grapes
and so Welner attempted to
have the grapes made into
wine by a little-known vintner
here. The result? It tasted
pretty bad. Some professional
tasters doubted if it was wine
at all.
It was then that professional

"What makes this wine ex-

characteristic for Israel and
reminiscent of better Euro-
pean and California bottles.
There is virtually no trace of

Starr was at first put off by
the prospect of managing an
unproved winery located in the
rough and rocky Golan
Heights on Israel s Syrian
border. But after Stern con-
vinced the young vintner to
taste the new sauvignon blanc,
"it started to sound in-
teresting," says Starr.
Andrew Starr, however,
must be the only winemaker
who is not allowed to touch his
own winemaking equipment or
wine before bottling. He may
be a Jew, but he is not
religiously observant, and so
he gives orders to religious or-
thodox Jewish winery
workers, many times in sign
language since he is not fluent
in Hebrew.

hasn't seemed to affect the ef-

to taste wines in various
stages of fermentation (poured
from the fermentation tanks
for him, of course, by a
religious worker). He leaves in

Black Lawmaker Says
Black-Jewish Coalition Is A Two Way Street
A coalition is "a two-way
street," and the Jewish-black
coalition in America can be
bolstered through increased
support from American Jews
on issues important to the
black community.
This was the message of
Mickey Leland (D., Texas),
chairman of the Congressional
Black Caucus, who addressed
the 27th Annual Public Policy
Conference of the American
Israel Public Affairs Commit-
tee (AIPAC) recently.
"I don't help Israel because I
want you to help us. I would
help Israel whether you help
me or not," Leland said,
stressing that his appeal was
not a question of "quid pro
role played by many Jews in
the civil rights movement of
the 1960s, Leland urged
greater Jewish input in the re-
maining battles that concern
American blacks. "I find it
comforting to know that the
majority of the Jewish
members of Congress support
us to the hilt on almost every
social program that we fight
for," he said.
But he called on Jewish in-
dividuals and groups to play a
larger role, by contacting
those members of Congress
"who don't understand our
plight necessarily, who don't
nave the empathy that you
have for our plight."
The former student militant
who has visited Israel several
times once touring on a bicy-
cle and who sponsors a sum-
mer program there for black
and Hispanic American youth,
also called on the Jewish State
to end its dealings with South
"I'M NOT one who stands
as a black leader in this coun-
try to say that Israel ought to
be condemned because it's do-
ing business with South
Africa," he said, adding that
some African nations and the
United States itself also main-
tain trade relations with that
country. "But allow me to
create the dialogue inside
Israel that will bring about a
campaign against apartheid."
Here at home, the founda-
tions for a strong black-Jewish
coalition may well have been
strengthened, Leland sug-
gested, by the anti-Semitic
"hate mongering" of the Black
Muslim leader Louis Far-
rakhan. and the tensions it
caused between the black and
Jewish communities.
"We can't be responsible for
Minister Farrakhan any more
than you can be responsible for
Rabbi (Meir) Kahane," the ex-
tremist Jewish leader who
emigrated to Israel from the
U.S. But the positive outcome
of the tensions over Far-
rakhan's emergence, he said,
was that it reinvigorated a
black-Jewish dialogue that had

meeting at The Hague last
week before the U.S. launched
its bombers against Libya,
made clear that they favored
diplomatic and political
measures before resorting to
force. After the raid, the
Foreign Ministries of the EEC
states were either critical or
Only British Foreign
Secretary Sir Geoffrey Howe
maintained, in a BBC address,
that the U.S. "has exercised
its right to self-defense." Bri-
tain allowed a part of the
American strike force F-lll
longe-range bombers to use
NATO bases on British soil.
BUT BRITISH opposition
parties, especially Labor, con-
demned the raids. Labor Party
leader Neil Kinnock said he
was "horrified" by the
American action and maintain-
ed that there were "other and
more effective ways to fight
Denis Healy, Labor's foreign
policy spokesman, accused
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher of "grovelling
subservience" to President
Reagan and warned that Bri-
tain would now become more
of a target of Libyan terrorism
than it was. According to op-
position spokesmen, Khadafy
now has more friends than he
had before the action.
The French Foreign
Ministry refused permission
for the American bombers to
overfly French territory on the
way to Libya and expressed
regrets over the raid, which it
said would "escalate"
THE RAID was also con-
demned by West Germany's
Foreign Minister, Hans-
Dietrich Genscher. Another
member of Chancellor Helmut
Kohl's Cabinet, Economics
Minister Martin Bangemann,
called the raid "inappropriate
and incomprehensible." The
Dutch and Italian govern-
ments were also highly critical.
In the United States, Jewish
organizations expressed full
support for the air strike
against Libya.
In a telegram to President
Reagan Tuesday, Kenneth
Bialkin, chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions, hailed the action against
"We support your policies in
defense of freedom and in re-
jection if intimidation," the
telegram said. "Only when in-
ternational terrorists are
made to realize that they must
pay for lawless conduct and
are accountable for the conse-
quences of their acts will there
be a return to the rule of law.
Until then, your efforts should
be appreciated by all of us who
understand the dangers of
national director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, sent a telegram to
Reagan saying, "We applaud
and fully support your decision
to attack Libya." He added:
"There is no simple, short-
term way to deal with ter-
rorists. Rather, it requires
hard decisions, risk-taking
over a period of time. We
stand behind you in this dif-
ficult but necessary effort."
Sidney Kwetel, president of
the Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of America,
also sent a telegram to the
White House in which he said
his organization "applauds the
courageous action taken by the
U.S. in its effort to combat
Libyan-inspired and sponsored
terrorism. We fully support
the Administration in its
worldwide war to end the
scourge of terrorism."
The leaders of the Herut
Zionists of America, the Betar
Zionist Youth Movement and
the Tagar Student Zionist Ac-
tivist Organization, jointly
sent a letter to United Nations
Secretary General Javier
Perez de Cuellar Tuesday urg-
ing him to mobilize the "na-
tions of the world in a united
effort to punish the sponsors
of international terrorism."
THE LETTER stated, in
part: "The United States
yesterday (Monday) took a
courageous and important step
in the campaign to eliminate
the cancer of international ter-
rorism. Through military ac-
tion against Libya, President
Harold Jacobs, president of
the National Council of Young
Israel, strongly endorsed the
U.S. reprisal attack on Libya
and stated: "We must be
prepared to confront not only
Libya, but all other interna-
tional terrorist havens, from
the Syrian-controlled Bekaa
Valley in Lebanon, to Tehran,
to the terrorist training
centers behind the Iron

perative that other govern-
ments of the free world aban-
don their policy of appease-
ment and join the United
States in the war against in-
terantional, state-sponsored
Rabbi William Berkowitz,
president of the American
Jewish Heritage Committee,
sent a telegram to Reagan ex-
tolling the strike against Libya
as an "historic and courageous
action that strikes at the very
center of the terror kingdom.
The United States has
demonstrated by this direct ac-
tion its resolve to stand firm
aganst the evils of terrorism,"
Berkowitz said.

cooperation in the effort to ful-

Hadassah Leader: Don't Allow Travel To
Israel To Become Hostage Of Terrorism -
NEW YORK (JTA) The national president of
Hadassah, Ruth Popkin, issued a call Thursday to all
Jewish leaders and organizations, as well as to non-Jewish
friends of Israel, to promote tourism to Israel by their
groups and by personal example. Popkin, who will be atten-
ding meetings in Jerusalem this summer together with
other officers of Hadassah, said it was important not to
permit travel and tourism to Israel to become the latest
hostage of terrorism.
"If we allow our travel plans to be dictated by terrorists,
we hand them a victory and penalize Israel and other
democratic countries they have targeted," she said.
Stressing the strict security precautions enforced by the
Israeli authorities as well as all those involved in caring for
visitors, Popkin said the best response to the terrorists is to
heighten vigilance and help make this a banner year for
tourism to Israel.
To this end, Hadassah will call on all its members to make
it part of their plans to visit Israel with their families and
friends and thus express their solidarity with Israel and
their support for her people and her economy.
Publicity chairmen for organizations that make sub-
missions to the Jewish Floridian should note that with
this issue the Floridian will publish bi-weekly until
September. Material is still due at least two weeks prior
to publication date.

Pope's Visit Lauded By U.S. Jewish Groups
NEW YORK (JTA) The visit by Pope John Paul II to the main
. nagogue in Rome was hailed by American Jewish groups as a major step in the
tocess of reconciliation between the Catholic and Jewish faiths. They also ex-
^essed hope that it would lead soon to Vatican recognition of the State of Israel.
The American Jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress declared in a
bint statement that the Pope s visit "and the content of his eloquent remarks
bnstitute an important and hopeful new chapter in the history of Catholicism's
elations with Judaism.
"The Pope's formulation of that relationship bespoke an unusual warmth and
Hendship that embrace and confirm the considerable progress that has occurred
i the past 20 years since Vatican II. More important, it holds the promise of fur-
\\er progress in that relationship," the AJC and WJC said.
THE STATEMENT, released in the name of Henry Siegman, executive
lirector of the AJC and newjy named chairman of the WJC's Commission on In-
lerreligious Affairs, hoped that the Pope's warm words of friendship will find
Expression before too long in the normalization of relations between the Vatican
M the State of Israel."
Rabbi Alexander Schindler, president of the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, the congregational arm of Reform Judaism in America, delcared
that the Pope "has given flesh and blood to the pronouncements of Vatican Coun-
hil II and, in so doing, has given heart to Catholics and Jews alike who seek to
deepen their understanding of each other."
Schindler added, however, that "this does not mean overlooking or ignoring
\he differences bewtween us that still remain. Jews can disagree with the
/atican on abortion and on diplomatic recognition of Israel and still work with
Catholics on racial equality, economic justice, world hunger and nuclear disarma-

secutive years, with countless
others hovering dangerously
close. "With over 700 people
moving to Florida every day,
Dr. Smith said, the strain on
social service delivery systems
will increase drastically."
"We must integrate social
services with planning, zoning
and land-use alternatives to
avoid economic segregation in
our community and to assure
that the poor have access to
employment opportunities,"
Smith said.
Discussing the probable im-
pact of federal deficit-
reduction measures on the
local community, Edith
Hoppe, administrator for the
local region of the state
Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services (HRS),
said budget cuts "will force
HRS to prioritize many ser-
vices into categories when in
fact they are ail very essen-
tial." Hoppe said the state and
each South Florida community
will have to make difficult deci-
sions about taxation and the
quality of life.
County Commissioner Ken
Adams outlined the specific
nent," Schindler said.
RABBI ARTHUR Schneier, president of the Appeal of Conscience Founda-
tion and spiritual leader of the Park East Synagogue in New York, called the
Pope's visit "a significant and symbolic act that will serve as the basis for
broadening and deepening the relationship of Catholics and Jews, including
eventual recognition of the State of Israel by the Vatican." :
Schneier also expressed confidence that the Pope's condemnation of anti-
Semitism in all of its forms and from any source "will have a profound effect on
the attitude of Catholics to Jews and Jews to Catholics for generations to come."
Dr. Ronald Sobel, chairman of the Intergroup Relations Committee of the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, said in a statement that the Pope's visit
was "both a symbol and reality testifying to the revolution that has taken place
in Catholic-Jewish relations during the last quarter of a century."
Sobel, who is senior rabbi of Temple Emanu-El in New York, added, "The
Pope's recognition and reaffirmation of the irrevocable call to the Jewish people
by God also stands as an eloquent witness to the growing sensitivity that
permeates the dialogue process between Catholics and Jews.
RABBI MARVIN Hier, dean of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal
Center, said, "This short journey from the throne of St. Peter to the central
synagogue of Rome assures Pope John Paul II a special place of honor in Jewish
history. Had such a journey been made by Pious XII, it is unlikely that Hitler's
'Final Solution' would have reached its demonic proportions."
Hier added, "Having ascended the steps of reconciliation with the Jewish'
people and vigorously condemned anti-Semitism, John Paul II should now ascend
the final step by establishing full diplomatic relations with the State of Israel."
areas that would be affected,
noting that substantial cuts
would occur in housing, senior
services, Head Start, transpor-
tation and summer youth pro-
grams. Estimating that Palm
Beach County stands to lose
anywhere between $8.5 to $11
million in federal funds,
Adams said, "We will see the
elimination of federal revenue-
sharing programs in Palm
Beach County," and he added
that an increase in local taxes
by 25 percent is likely to occur
to make up for some of the fun-
ding cuts.
Commissioner Adams sug-
gested other measures which
could be enacted to reduce the
fiscal impact, including im-
proved governmental efficien-
cy, the imposition of user fees,
the leasing of county-owned
property and more effective
lobbying by social service
"We must prostitute com-
munity pride in order to obtain
state and federal dollars for
our needs," Adams admitted.
County Commissioner Ken
Spillias stated that the County
Commission has agreed to in-
clude social services in the
county's comprehensive plan.
"The importance of human
services should be on the same
par with roads, sewer and
other necessary services," he
All of the human and social
service agencies represented

their attempt to contend with

tempt to garner community
support in dealing with the
budget crisis.

Antidote to Neo-Nazi Propaganda
BONN (JTA) A visit to the site of a former con-
centration camp has been declared mandatory for all pupils
in state-run schools in Bavaria, partly as an antidote
against neo-Nazi propaganda.
The precedent-setting decision was taken by the ruling
conservative Christian Social Union (CSU) in cooperation
with the opposition Social Democratic Party (SPD). The
idea originated with an SPD member of the Bavarian
legislature, Peter Kurz, a trade union activist.
It is part of the preparations for and studies about the
Nazi era and may include student meeting with survivors of
Nazi persecution. Kurz said the timing of his initiative coin-
cided with the increased efforts by neo-Nazi groups to at-
tract members among German youths.

Book Review
'The Siege': Best Book On Israel
Sternstein Inaugurated
It is said that one should not
speak in absolutes. There are,
supposedly, no "bests" and
"worsts despite the
predilection of some magazine
editors for naming the best
Chinese restaurant in town, or
the worst dry cleaners. Never-
theless, I will defy this pro-
bably wise adage by stating
that The Siege by Conor Cruise
O'Brien is the single best book
on Israel that I've ever read.
The Siege (Simon and
Schuster, 1986) is a most un-
common book by a most un-
common author. O'Brien, as
his name indicates, is an Irish
Catholic. A writer and editor,
he first became interested in
Israel while serving as
Ireland's ambassador to the
United Nations. Because
Ireland is fixed alphabetically
between Iraq and Israel,
O'Brien's seat in the General
Assembly was located between
his two Middle Eastern
counterparts. He became
friendly with the Israeli and,
ultimately, fascinated with the
story of Israel's rebirth.
The Siege tells that story in
strong, clean, hard-hitting pro-
se. For O'Brien, the re-
establishment of Israel and
its survival in the face of the
siege waged against it is
"inherently perhaps the
greatest story of modern
times." O'Brien begins at the
beginning, with word portraits
of Theodor Herzl, Chaim Weiz-
mann, Vladimir Jabotinsky,
David Ben-Gurion^Menaqhem ,
Begin, Abba Eban and the
other key figures who helped
create and preserve the
modern Jewish state. They are
not presented as heroes
sculpted in marble but as real
people some of whom dislik-
ed each other intensely who
somehow managed to pull
together in one historic com-
mon effort.
O'Brien believes that
Zionism is oiw of history's
great success stories. Not only
was the Jewish state establish-
ed, but that state has helped
reduce the anti-Semitism that
has dogged the Jewish people
for 1,900 years. In O'Brien's
view, it is the existence of a
strong Israel that helps pre-
vent attacks on Jews even in
the Diaspora. It is only in
periods when Israel appears
weak that the anti-Semites
smelling blood come out of
their closets.
O'Brien describes various
moments during the last 38
years when Israel was weak,
dangerously weak. His
description of the 1956 Sinai
campaign period when
Israel was threatened with
nuclear attack by Moscow
while the Eisenhower Ad-
ministration pointedly looked
the other way is particularly
Equally disturbing is
O'Brien's description of the
role he alleges that Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger
played during the disastrous
Yom Kippur War. O'Brien
believes and presents sup-
porting evidence that it was
Kissinger who encouraged
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat to "htat up" the con-
frontation with Israel in the
fall of 1973. O'Brien writes
that Kissinger apparently sug-
gested to Sadat that "only by
going to war (could he) induce
the United States to put
enough pressure on Israel to
secure the return of his ter-
ritories." Later, once the war
was under way and going
badly for Israel "Kissinger's
policy" was to "stall on the
resupply of arms to Israel so as
to soften Israel up for the
ultimate peace negotiations."
In the end, writes O'Brien,
Prime Minister Golda Meir had
to "bypass" the unsupportive
Secretary of State and appeal
directly to President Nixon for
the arms necessary to stave off
defeat. It was Nixon who
"ordered the great airlift"
that helped save the Jewish
There is more to O'Brien's
book, much more. Even his
discussion of the Lebanon war
and of the PLO's role in inter-
national terror provides either
new information or a new
twist on things the reader
already knows.
His conclusion, while not op-
timistic, is realistic. O'Brien
does not expect any com-
prehensive "solution" to the
Middle East conflict. Like the
Irish "troubles," it gives every
indication of being one of those
near-permanent international
problems. Israel cannot give
up the West Bank and
Jerusalem; the Arabs can ac-
cept nothing less than a settle-
ment that would strip Israel of
both, and probably much more.
The answer for O'Brien then
is some sort of shared rule on
the West Bank. The Israeli
military presence would stay
but the Palestinian Arabs and
Jordan would take the lead in
matters relating to civilian life.
In fact, that is happening
already. Peace, real peace, will
have to await the day when the
Arabs agree to end the siege.
That, says O'Brien, won't hap-
pen soon.

Yom Ha-Sho'ah: A Tribute To
Unconquerable Jewish Spirit
Temple Beth David
The upcoming trial of John
Demjanjuk the alleged
"Ivan the Terrible" of the con-
centration camps has arous-
ed an emotion-filled and
fascinating controversy in
Israel. It is a debate which also
has implications for the entire
world Jewish community.
On the one hand, there is the
understandable need for the
state of Israel, as the embodi-
ment of Jewish political
sovereignty, to bring to justice
Nazi war criminals who have
participated in crimes against
the Jewish people. But articles
in the Israeli press have also
raised questions concerning
the necessity for, and the ad-
visability of, another major
trial along the lines of the
Eichmann trial.
These articles have especial-
ly questioned the effect of such
public spectacles on Jewish
youth, since they portray Jews
as victims, slaughtered and an-
nihilated. What kind of iden-
tification with the Jewish peo-
ple will our youth want, one
writer wonders, after seeing
the helplessness of Jews at the
hands of the Nazis? The up-
coming trial would only serve
to alienate young Jews, not
because of their lack of sen-
sitivity, but precisely because
they would refuse to identify
themselves with a Jewish peo-
ple unable to control its fate or
to have a hand in its destiny.
As the world prepares to
mark Yom HaSho'ah,
Holocaust Memorial Day, once
again this year, and as our
Rabbi William Marder
local Jewish community plans
its observance, we too are
plagued by the questions and
the issues raised by this con-
troversy in Israel.
Furthermore, as Jewish
educators and leaders have
known for some time, the ef-
fects of learning and studying
the Holocaust have had mixed
reactions at best among
Jewish youth. It is no longer
effective, if it ever was, to use
the anti-Semitism of the
Holocaust as a motivating fac-
tor in retaining Jewish identi-
ty. Both the American and the
Israeli experiences have
stressed Jews who are self-
reliant, with power and in-
fluence, whether political,
diplomatic, or military. Our
generation recoils at the image
of the Jew as victim, as a
helpless pawn. As a result we
distance ourselves even fur-
ther from the Holocaust and

from the important and crucial
lessons we can learn from it.
There is a lesson from a
Passover Seder, however,
which has much to teach us in
regard to Yom HaSho'ah pro-
grams. The Talmud relates
that the recitation of the
Jewish experience at the
Seder table begins with g'noot
with degradation, with
humiliation. For that reason
we recite avadim hayinu
"we were slaves unto Pharaoh
in Egypt" which talks of
physical oppression, and the
passage that begins mitchilah
"at the outset our ancestors
were worshippers of idols"
which talks of spiritual
But, the Talmud continues,
the recitation at the Seder
must end b'shevach with
praise, triumph, with hope.
No sooner has Passover
gone by than we turn to Yom
HaSho'ah, and the lesson of
beginning with humiliation but
ending with pride ought to
stay with us and be present in
all our Holocaust observances.
True, we remember at that
time the physical destruction
wrought, the six million killed,
the helplessness of the Jewish
communities. But we must
always remember to include in
our thinking about the
Holocaust a note of pride and
praise. We must inculcate the
fact that Jews did not go calm-
ly and helplessly to their
deaths, but rather that there
were uprisings and
resistances. The Warsaw
Ghetto uprising, which Yom
HaSho'ah commemorates on
the 27th day of Nisan every
year, was not an isolated
event. In fact, as Abba Eban
pointed out in the Heritage
series of television programs,
there were uprisings in 105
ghettoes and resistance in
most concentration camps!
And we have to stress what
resistance meant under such
circumstances. Not necessarily
acts of armed resistance, but
small braveries committed dai-
ly under the threat of immi-
nent and extreme punishment,
heroisms repeated time and
time again. We should note
that in Israel the day is called
Yom HaSho'ah vehaGevura,
Holocaust and Heroism Day.
We have to remember always
that the Jewish spirit was
then, and is now,
By ending on a note of praise
to the indomitable Jewish
spirit we do honor to all those
swept up in the Holocaust and
to those generations of the
Jewish future who want to find
pride in their identity.
Let this be our effort and our
emphasis for Yom HaSho'ah:
pride, dignity, the inex-
tinguishable spirit of the
Jewish people.

3,000 Jews had to cross the en-
tire city to the ghetto from
where they were then
deported. "Even the stones of
Salonika knew of the drama of
the Jews," he added. "Is it
possible that Waldheim did not
see the yellow stars on our
chests, the Jewish cemetery
destroyed by the Germans, the
shops displaying Jewish pro-
perty signs, and the Nazis stor-
ming into our homes?

have observed these things,
even a simple German, and
Waldheim was much more. He
was a secretary to the General

In Memory Of David Katz
David Katz, of Palm Beach, died recently,
leaving behind an outstanding legacy of commit-
ment to Jewish values and causes.
Having resided in the Palm Beaches for
almost 60 years, Katz was born in an Austrian
htetl and lived as a pioneer in Palestine during
the early 1920s. With little money and no
knowledge of English, he arrived in New York
and worked in the clothing and fashion industry. David Katz
Upon arriving in South Florida in 1926 Katz immediately set
out to fight rampant anti-Semitism and unify the small Jewish
community. He served on the district committee of the Anti-
Defamation League and was the first president of the United
Jewish Appeal in the days before the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
Katz was one of the most generous benefactors our Jewish
community has ever known, naving made major gifts to the
Jewish Community Day School and the Morse Geriatric Center.
He also donated a Torah to Ten-role Emanu-El and served as a
member of the board there.
He is survived by his daughters, Letita and Mignon, his sister
Clara, and two grandchildren.
"You have to put logs on the fire or it will be extinguished,"
Katz said in an interview last summer. Despite his passing, the
