Rabin: PLO Responsible For
West Bank Palestinian Deaths
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin charged last week that
the Palestine Liberation
Organization was responsible
for the deaths of young
Palestinians in recent clashes
with the Israel Defense Force
in the West Bank because it
was the PLO which incited
youths to riot and throw rocks
at Israeli security forces and
He also blamed the unrest on
Jordan's lack of response to
Israeli calls for peace negotia-
tions and on "residents of the
(administered) areas and other
Palestinians who are not
declared members of the PLO
(but) who refuse to accept
Israel's hand outstretched for
peace, to sit around the
negotiating table and reach

Dr. Kohane To Speak
At President's Dinner
Erwin H. Blonder, President
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County and Chair-
man of the President's Dinner,
has announced that Dr. Akiva
Kohane, American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee
Director for Poland and of its
transmigrant programs, will
be the guest speaker at the
dinner. The $10,000 minimum
commitment event, given on
behalf of the 1987 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign, will be held on
Thursday, Jan. 8, 6 p.m., at
The Breakers, Palm Beach.
Mr. Blonder, along with his
Co-Chairmen Lionel P. Green-
baum and Sidney Marks, noted
that "Dr. Kohane is one of the
world's foremost authorities
on Jewish life in Eastern
Europe and led in the effort to
reconstitute Jewish life in
Europe after the Holocaust.
He is an expert on the remnant
cultures of Jewish life in
Eastern Europe and the
policies of each Eastern bloc
country toward their Jewish

populations. We are very
pleased that such a rare in-
dividual, involved with the
welfare of East European
Jewry on a day to day basis,
will address our committed

Nablus. Rabin told the Knesset
that a forensic examination of

from a weapon not used by the
IDF or the border police.

fatal wounds before the IDF

Mercedes Car Firm Employed Slave Laborers
BONN (JTA) The Daimler-Benz Corp., manufacturer of the prestigious
Mercedes-Benz car, formally acknowledged that it employed thousands of slave
laborers during the Nazi era in a report prepared for it by an historian, Prof.
Hans Pohl, just released here.
The report, however, makes no reference to possible reparations for the sur-
viving slave laborers or their families. According to the report, some 5,000 slave
laborers were employed by Daimler-Benz in 1941 and the number rose to 18,000
in 1943, most of them recruited from among concentration camp inmates, in-
cluding large numbers of Jews.
The slave laborers received no compensation whatever and, near the end of
the war, were so badly treated that they could not work.
The company ordered the report last year after it was criticized for the way
it handled claims by former slave laborers. Daimler-Benz rejected them initially
on grounds that they had neither legal nor moral standing. But later it signaled
readiness to discuss the matter with Jewish and other organizations represen-
ting former slave laborers.

The Tishman Years 1969-70
The foundations of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County's current pro-
grams and services and its
beneficiary agencies were laid
down throughout the ad-
ministration of many Federa-
tion Presidents. And so it was
with Jerome Tishman who
served as President in
1969-70. He worked actively
from the early days of Federa-
tion to insure that the Jewish
community would be provided
with the institutions necessary
to take care of its youth, elder-
ly, singles and families as well
as its fellow Jews in Israel and
Mr. Tishman was the first
Chairman of the Camp Com-
mittee which undertook the
establishment of Camp Shalom
on Belvedere Road in 1962. It
was this need to provide for
the youth of the community
that initiated his involvement
in the newly reorganized
Jewish Federation. "I served
as Secretary under the first
President, Morton Silberman.
Many of us who worked closely
with him under his administra-
tion subsequently became
Presidents. Many things ac-
complished for our community
were done through the efforts
of many people, not just one in-
dividual, Mr. Tishman ex-
plained modestly.
At this time the first alloca-
tion of funds by the Palm
Beach Community Chest was
made to Camp Shalom. "The

Mr. Tishman was the first
Chairman of the Jewish Fami-
ly and Children's Service when
the community recognized
that there were many families
here who needed counseling
and other social service
assistance. When the JFCS
was established as an indepen-
dent agency, Mr. Tishman
served as its first President.
The Jewish Federation, dur-
ing Mr. Tishman's administra-
tion, expanded its activities to
include the Boca Raton Jewish
community. "We had our first
fund-raising event at the Boca
Teeca Country Club so that
residents of South County
would feel part of the overall
local Jewish community in
demonstrating their support
for local Jewish needs and
Israel. Eventually they felt
they could not adequately be
served by our Federation
because of the distance from
the West Palm Beach office
and they formed their own
organization," Mr. Tishman

Violence Poses Dilemma of Israel's Legitimacy
The Cabinet of Prime Minister Shamir's
Unity Government is meeting as a
Ministerial Defense Committee these days
to discuss the continuing violence on the
West Bank. As of early this week three
Arabs have already been killed by Israel
Defense Forces soldiers a 14-year-old boy
near Nablus and two 22-year-old students at
the Bir Zeit Unive -ty.
Obviously, a time jomb is rapidly ticking
away in this occupied region. It does little
good when Maj. Gen. Ehud Barak, the com-
mander of the central front, explains the
three deaths by declaring that in both in-
stances soldiers followed the approved pro-
cedure when the Arab rioting got out of
Approved procedure includes these steps
to be taken against Arabs involved in
violence: orders to cease; followed by firing
of weapons into the air if the orders are not
carried out; followed finally by firing at the
feet of rioters who have disregarded the
first two orders to emphasize that IDF or
border patrol personnel mean business.
An Unpleasant Parallel
But none of this explains how bullets aim-
ed at the feet of rioters in the end inflicted
fatal wounds on the three Arab youths. Nor
will these procedures ever do any good as a
means of appeasing Arab residents on the
West Bank. It may well be that nothing will
do any good to settle the volatile air of Arab
discontent, and as Israeli frustration mounts
in the matter of maintaining civil order, in-
creasingly oppressive measures are likely to
mount as well.
It is not a pleasant parallel, but the deter-
mination of the ruling South Africa govern-
ment to maintain its apartheid policies is in
the end bound to fail as it enforces these
policies against growing black civil disobe-
dience ana increasing pressure from abroad
to put an end to it.
None of this suggests that the parallel
holds in entirety. Israel is a legitimate na-
tion, and its government is legitimate within
specified geographic boundaries. Within
these boundaries, there are Arabs who con-
tinue to question this legitimacy by acts of
violence. Abroad, there are forces, for exam-
ple the Palestine Liberation Organization,
determined to put an end, not just to Israel's
legitimacy, but to its facticity as a nation.
Rut of Official Policy
In Israel's struggle to keep Israeli Arabs
as an allegiant part of the country's total
population, it has every right to defend itself
against disobedience that includes
everything from rioting to the murder of
Israeli citizens.
And in Israel's armed struggle against ter-
rorism from abroad, it has every right to
counter acts of warfare with acts of warfare
of its own.
It is in the occupied territories where pro-
blems arise where the questioned
legitimacy of Israel's claims on the West
Bank and in Gaza shifts the focus on Israel,
right or wrong, from a nation of order to one
of oppression. Just as the South African na-
tion, once regarded as a legitimate govern-
ment, has no right to deny blacks their
democratic rights, Israel must come to more
realistic terms with the destiny of the ter-
ritories than shape some of the fantasies

controlling its policies in the territories
^The fact is that every responsible Israel
government leader knows this but too
many of them remain in the rut of official
policy that suggests that the Arabs there
must be made to accept Israeli occupation as
an unalterable fact.
Time Bomb Ticking
For example, Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin said the other day that Israel must br-
ing Arab youths into service in the IDF;
otherwise, how would they ever be expected
to acquire a sense of citizenship within the
nation as a whole? And Minister of Com-
merce and Industry Ariel Sharon has
declared that the only way to counter Arab
rioting in the territories is to increase
Jewish settlement there.
Rabin's suggestion seems proper enough
on its face. But if Arab youths are disaf-
fected, indeed totally rebellious against the
thought of allegiance to Israel, then bringing
them to service in the IDF could be irrele-
vant as a solution to the problem, if not
downright dangerous.
So far as Sharon's recommendation is con-
cerned, it has been the backbone of Prime
Minister Shamir's West Bank policy since
his first prime ministership as an extension
of the policy of his predecessor, Menachem
Begin. And what good has that done?
The fact is that the violence escalates daily
in the territories. Some real movement in
the direction of solving the problem must be
made. And soon. Unfortunately, the current
international obsession with Iranscam, in-
cluding Israel's role in it as an agent of the
Reagan Administration, preoccupies the
leaders of both governments to the exclu-
sion almost of all other business.
Meanwhile, the West Bank time bomb
keeps ticking away.
U.S., Israel Urged
'Come Clean' on Iran, Contra Rebel Funds
Friday, December 19,1986
Volume 12
Number 40
Tom Dine, the
director of the American
Israel Public Affairs Com-
mittee, has urged Israeli
and American leaders to
"come clean" in divulging
every possible detail about
the controversial arms sales
to Iran and the
U.S.-supported Contra
rebels fighting to overthrow
the Sandinista government
in Nicaragua.
Speaking to supporters of
AIPAC (luring a fund-raising sw-
ing through northern California,
Dine stated that it is in the best in-
terest of U.S.-Israel relations to
answer the questions that Jews
and non-Jews alike have begun to
"Did Israel sell arms to the Con-
tras with the authority of the
President of the United States?"
Dine asked during one talk to 600
AIPAC supporters at the Fair-
mont Hotel in San Francisco.
"Did it circumvent American
law or manipulate American
foreign policy? By selling arms to
Iran, has Israel helped Iran's
leader, Ayatollah Khomeini,
spread his Islamic revolution?
These are serious questions, and
ones which require serious
BUT DINE, who stated that
"the truth hurts, but is better to
get it out in the short run," said he
is confident that Israel's Knesset
will get to the bottom of that coun-
try's involvement. "With an
unfettered press and a parliamen-
tary system, the truth will
ultimately win out," he said.
Regarding U.S. actions, Dine
said he hopes a bipartisan Con-
gressional committee soon will be
formed. Describing the Reagan
Administration's involvement as
"the most tangled web of national
and global interests I've seen in
my 20 years on Capitol Hill," the
former Congressional aide said he
is most concerned with how the
crisis will affect the conduct of
foreign policy.
Furthermore, he noted, "in the

disarray, some people close to the
President are dividing administra-
tion members into loyalists and
those "who are disloyal to the
President, and this is extremely
The main problem with this
"siege mentality," Dine said, is
that one of the major architects of
the U.S.-Israel policy, Secretary
of State George Shultz, who "has
been critical in advancing
U.S.-Israel relations in the last
two years," may be forced to
the consequences of a prospective
Cabinet shakeup. He noted that
with Vice Admiral John Poindex-
ter fired as the National Security
Council (NSC) chief, and with the
appointment of Frank Carlucci as
the new NSC chief, "we may be
seeing a lightly pro-Arab tilt in the
Carlucci, who worked for
Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger during the Nixon Ad-
ministration and early in the
Reagan Administration, was a
"strong supporter of arms sales,
especially AWACS, to Saudi
Arabia," Dine explained.
In the event that Shultz is forc-
ed to resign. Dine said,
Weinberger, a strong supporter of
arms sales to the Saudis, may
become a major foreign
policymaker, possibly even
Secretary of State. "No matter
how pro-Israel Reagan is, the
President has to have people in
the State Department whose sup-
port of Israel is unfaltering," Dine
REFERRING TO last year's
$3 billion foreign aid package, to
the Free Trade Agreement of
1984, and to the "strategic
cooperation" that now exists bet-
ween the United States and
Israel, Dine stated that it has been
nothing short of "amazing, in a
time of budget deficits, what the
Reagan Administration has done
to be supportive towards Israel in
terms of military and economic
"Clearly, this whole affair is
potentially tragic whan you con-
sider the extent of the bilateral
relations between Israel and the
United States that have been nur-
tured over the years."
It is precisely the un-
precedented cooperation between
the two countries that may be en-
dangered by the unfolding con-
troversy of arms sales to Iran and
diverted funds to the Nicaraguan
rebels, Dine said while noting that
Congress will be acting on foreign
aid appropriations as early as
March. "It's critical that both the
U.S. and Israel clear the air now

"Morse Home Health Agen-
cy has been established to
meet the pressing needs of
those individuals who require
care but are reluctant or
unable to be hospitalized or ad-
mitted to a nursing facility. In
home care the patient is im-

"Home health care, besides
rendering its primary services
to the patient, also offers the
family members emotional and
instructional support they
usually need. No one feels
'alone in this approach to

pressed how much he would
"love to find the time to visit
the Mount of Olives and Mt.
Scopus." Shamir replied "If
you love Jerusalem so much,
why don't you move your Em-

sighed and said "We have too
many problems without adding
that to everything else." "In
that case," persisted Shamir,
"what difference would one

troubling to think what could

campus of Cornell University,
stating: "I will use bullets and

reminds us of the enduring
power of hatred, the appeal of
scapegoating, and the "enter-

It also reminds us of the abuse
of free speech as the last

remembering is that anti-
Semitism in Germany did not
begin among ignorant masses,
but among the intellectuals.
They created a cultural base of
racism before hooliganism.
Hitler chanelled existing
hostility into a political and

Israel, for the PLO, is what
bread and circuses were for
the Caesars of Rome: a means
of making their people forget
their troubles at home: pover-
ty, pervasive ethnic hatreds,
religious intolerance and
fanaticism. Israelis must be
constantly vigilant, against
death and mutilation by Arab
terrorists. They leave psychic
scars which cannot be healed
by ethical pronouncements in

describes as, "paragons of

upon understanding terrorists

Mother-Daughter Relationships

Recently I led a discussion
on Mother-Daughter Relation-
ships for the National Council
of Jewish Women-Flagler Sec-
tion. The discussion started in
an upbeat way by nostalgically
remembering what Erma
Bombeck calls "Motherese"
a language passed down from
one generation of mothers to
the next. Expressions such as
"this is going to hurt me worse
than it hurts you," and "just
wait until you have children of
your own,' drew laughter and
recognition from the audience,
which consisted of mothers
and daughters.
Mother-daughter relation-
ships change over the life cy-
cle, and this group shared their
observations and memories.

PLO Breakout
After a two-month siege of
Palestinian Arab quarters in
Beirut, Sidon and Tyre which
has resulted in hundreds of
dead and wounded on both
sides, PLO gunmen broke
through Shi'ite Amal militia
lines to capture the mostly
Christian village of
Maghdusheh in the hills
overlooking Sidon. Voice of
Lebanon associated with the
Christian Phalange Party,
reported that "the Palesti-
nians cordoned off the police
post and captured weapons. A
large number of people have
been killed or wounded in this
The move, reportedly by as
many as 1,000 PLO members,
cut Amal supply lines and
might ease pressure on some
of the Palestinian districts. Ac-
cording to the New York
Times, Syria "pressed its allies
among the Lebanese leftists
... to crush the Palestinian
guerrillas in Lebanon." Druze
leader Walid Jumblatt,
previously an ally of the PLO,
declared: "We will confront
jointly and with all means any
possible attempt by the
Palestinians to expand outside
their camps." Amal later laun-
ched a heavy counterattack.

daughters. The experience of
leaving home to start one's
own household or to marry
were also memorable points of
transition. Daughters noted a
new closeness and deeper ap-
preciation when they had
babies. The discussion pro-
gressed to mature
daughter/aging mother crises.
Various participants shared
that what happened to their
relationships with mothers
when their fathers or grand-
mothers died, was a temporary
period of role reversal.
This particular discussion
helped some women clarify
their mother-daughter situa-
tions by hearing what others
had to say. As a matter of fact,
earlier in the week I had
rken to my own mother
ut problems in her con-
dominium association and her
need to get away. When I ar-
rived home the evening of the
discussion, I paused to
remember how many times my
mother had "been there" for
me, particularly after the
death of my husband. I dialed
the phone and invited my
parents over for the weekend.
The most important motto of
a healthy adult mother-
daughter relationship was
summarized, "Let both
mother and daughter lend a
hand to each other whenever
help is needed."

Dr. Kohane joined the JDC
staff in 1944 in Tehran, where
he directed a package relief
program to European Jews
who had fled Europe ahead of
the German armies and had
found temporary refuge in
Asiatic Russia. Dr. Kohane, a
native of Poland himself,
escaped just before his country
was overrun by the Nazis. He
made his way to Palestine in
1940 where he organized the
United Committee to Help
Polish Jewry.
After the war, Dr. Kohane
was named JDC Deputy Direc-
tor for Germany and held this
post until 1954 when he was
assigned to Brazil to organize
an integration program for the
Jewish immigrants who had
arrived since the end of the
In 1955 he was returned to
the JDC overseas head-
quarters in Geneva and given
responsibility for the
Reconstruction Department.
In 1959 he was named JDC
representative to Poland with
responsibility for relief and

remaining Jewish population.
Dr. Kohane was educated in
Cracow, Poland where he was
born and graduated from

National Campaign Consultant
To Assist Demographic Study
Stanley Brenner, Chairman
of the Demographic Study
Committee of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, has announced that
Norbert Fruehauf, Director of
Campaign Planning Services
for the Council of Jewish
Federations, will be assisting
this community in its upcom-
ing Demographic Study. The
study will survey the Jewish
community from Boynton
Beach to Jupiter to determine
its needs, practices, and
Mr. Brenner noted that Mr.
Fruehauf was in the communi-
ty recently to work with the
Federation leadership and
staff on portions of the
Demographic Study related to
the Federation/UJA Cam-
paign. "Mr. Fruehauf s input
will be invaluable in this area
and we are pleased that this
national campaign planning
expert will be assisting our
community in this endeavor."
Mr. Fruehauf stressed that
the results of the population
survey will reflect what this
community's future needs will
be. "The information your
community will be gathering
will show how upcoming Cam-
paigns can better respond to
the interests of the Jewish
community and plan for its
future viability."
The Campaign related ques-
tions will be an integral part of
the overall random sampling
telephone survey which will
begin on Jan. 22. Respondents
will remain anonymous and
the information they give will
be strictly confidential. "There
will be no way of identifying a
specific individual," stated Mr.
Fruehauf, "so people should
feel completely comfortable in
answering the questions."
"You have a tremendous
variety of people from other
communities who are residing
here now either full-time or on
a part-time basis. They bring
with them a wealth of informa-
tion and past involvment
which will help mold this
relatively new community.
Palm Beach will be serving as
a model for other sun-belt com-
munities," he said.
Mr. Fruehauf stressed that
it was most appropriate for
Federation to be undertaking
this Demographic Study. "The
Federation is the central plan-
ning agency of the Jewish com-
munity. The purpose of the an-
nual Campaign is not only to
raise money but to identify the

to such formalities.
Gilboa seemed more than
pleased when he emerged.
While he declined to say
anything about his talk with
Papoulias, he expressed
cautious optimism over the
warming of relations between
the two countries.
Greece has never extended
de jure recognition to Israel.
For that reason, the Israeli en-
voy presented his letter of ac-
creditation to the Foreign
Minister rather than to the
Greece, moreover, has taken
a consistently pro-Arab stand
in the Middle East conflict and
has, in fact, refused to go
along with its European
Economic Community (EEC)
partners' decision to impose
sanctions against Syria for its
involvement in recent interna-
tional terrorist acts.
The upgrading of Israel's
representation in Athens from
Consular level to diplomatic
mission, coupled with other re-
cent manifestation of Greek-
Israeli cooperation represents
a substantial advance in their
Gilboa in fact had cause to be
pleased with the cir-
cumstances surrounding his
meeting with Papoulias. For
one thing, his arrival in Athens
caught the Foreign Minister
on the run. Papoulias had just
returned from a three-week
visit to the United States and
West Germany and had to
report to Prime Minister An-
dreas Papandreou before leav-
ing that evening for a week-
long meeting of the EEC in
Foreign Ministry officials

Order Sank Israeli Sub
Israeli submarine Dakar,
posted missing with all hands
in 1968, was sunk at the orders
of then Egyptian President
Gamal Abdel Nasser, accor-
ding to a retired Egyptian
naval officer who says he com-
manded the operation.
Retired Vice Admiral Samir
Shalabi wrote in the current
issue of the Cairo weekly A-
Shaab that "We carried out
the mission near Egyptian ter-
ritorial waters west of tile
town of Al-Dakhila on January
25, 1968."
That was the date when the
Dakar, a British-built sub-
marine of World War II vin-
tage on its delivery voyage to
Israel with a crew of 69 was
last heard from. It was never
determined whether the
undersea craft foundered
because of the failure of its
pressurized hull or other inter-
nal difficulties, or was
destroyed by enemy action.
Until now, Egypt has denied
any knowledge of the fate of
the Dakar.
Earlier this year, Egypt
gave Israel permission to
search in its coastal waters for
traces of the submarine. The
search, carried out with the
help of U.S. Navy personnel
and equipment, was ter-
minated in October after
nothing was found.
Shalabi, in his account of
events nearly 19 years ago,
wrote: "Our underwater
detection system discovered a
hostile target. We reported to
President Nasser who ordered
the Naval Command to locate
the target and hit it. Nasser
was concerned over a possible
attack by Israeli frogmen.
Seventeen kilometers from
shore, we made contact with
the submarine. I gave the
order, and we dropped 36
depth charges on it, and
reported on our success."
The Admiral said
"helicopters that arrived on
the scene searched for remains
of the sub, but there were
Deputy Foreign Minister to
avoid waiting a week or more
to see Papoulias. Gilboa refus-
ed. When Papoulias was advis-
ed of this, he immediately ar-
ranged to see the Israeli.
That was something of a
precedent, for the new Egyp-
tian Ambassador had been
forced to wait a month to pre-
sent his credentials to the
President and the Chinese
Ambassador waited three
months. Papoulias' concur-
rence with the Israel's wishes
was seen as significant.
Also regarded as significant
was the fact that the two men
met with no one present ex-
cept Papoulias' translator.
Another indication that
Greece seeks to improve its
ties with Israel was the fact
that the meeting took place on-
ly a day after the United Na-
tions Security Council adopted
an Arab-sponsored resolution
condemning Israel for the
shooting deaths of two Palesti-
nian students at Birg Zeit
University in the West Bank
on December 4. Asked by
reporters if Papoulias had
referred to the incident, Gilboa
shook his head. Observers here
suggested that the courtesies
extended to the Israeli
representative stemmed from
the fact that he heads the
Foreign Ministry's World
Jewish Affairs Division in
Jerusalem and is therefore
quite close to American Jewish
leaders. The Greek govern-
ment is very sensitive to
American opinion.
The establishment of the
Israeli mission here followed
an exchange of visits between
the Tourism Ministers of both
countries which resulted in
agreement to launch a joint
Greek-Israel advertising and
promotion campaign to attract
American tourists. The agree-
ment was finalized in
Jerusalem last moth.
In addition, a delegation of
Greek agronomists, headed by
George Drys, Secretary
General of tile Ministry of
Agriculture in Athens, is leav-
ing this week on a visit to
Israel to discuss agricultural
problems and possible coopera-
tion. They are returning the

Dispute Over Tomatoes
An interministerial dispute
over tomatoes appears to be
resolved. The Agriculture
Ministry has decided not to im-
port them for the time being.
Acting Minister of
Agriculture Ezer Weizman
seems to have emerged the vic-
tor, though he walked off the
job in disgust recently when
the Finance Ministry announc-
ed over his objections that 100
tons of tomatoes would be air-
freighted from Spain.
The reason was the seasonal
shortage which has sent the
price of tomatoes soaring from
2-3 Shekels a kilo to 8-9
Shekels. Weizman, standing in
for Agriculture Minister Arieh
Nehamkn, who is abroad,
vetoed the import on grounds
that prices will drop sharply
when the Jordan Valley crop
reaches the market.
But Finance Minister Moshe
Nissim overrode Weizman
after counsulting with
Nehamkin by telephone.
Nehamkin ordered his aides to
Si ahead with the import. The
ini8try has since discovered
that Israeli families are buyng
tomatoes at the equivalent of
$2.50 a pound, despite urgings
from consumer organizations
to boycott them until the price
comes down.
The Ministry also discovered
that European tomatoes
available here are of a small
variety which is unpopular
with Israeli consumers. Jordan
Valley growers meanwhile
promised that their crop will
reach the market very soon.

A Home Away From Home
Senior at the University
of Florida, Gainesville
Majoring hi Public Relations
Even before freshman
Michelle Markovitz arrived in
Gainesville, she knew she
would have a home away from
home while attending the
University of Florida.
While other first-year
students take weeks or even
months to find their niche at a
new school, Markowitz was
sure she would feel immediate-
ly welcome in her new
Markovitz, you see, is a
Jewish student. The home she
found in Gainesville, is the
Hillel Foundation, a subsidiary
organization under B'nai
B'rith, which attempts to
reinstall the ideals of Judaism
in college students.
Hillel Foundations are na-
tionwide at campuses with a
substantial number of Jewish
students, and their programs
are especially directed toward
the needs of Jewish college
Rabbi Gerald Friedman,
director of the Hillel Founda-
tion in Gainesville, said the
Hillel programs are designed
to offer college students a "se-
cond chance to discover the
"wonders and mysteries" of
the Jewish religion.
"Most Jewish kids today
aren't comfortable as Jews
because they haven't been
shown how to be citizens of the
Jewish nation," Friedman
said. "The programs at Hillel
offer students a second chance
to become 'hot' about their
Friedman said he feels it is
important that this "second
chance" comes during the col-
lege years through Hillel.
"Today's Jews often do not
continue their Jewish educa-
tion past the Bar Mitzvah,'
Friedman said. "They spend a
lot of time growing up without
anything Judaic."
In the Jewish tradition, the
Bar Mitzvah is a ritual where
the young Jewish student
leads one religious service,
thus proving his knowledge of
the Hebrew culture, language
and religion.
"Hillel offers students the
opportunity to continue their
education spiritually, cultural-
ly and socially as young
adults," Friedman said.
Although the Hillel Founda-
tion of Gainesville seems like
the place every Jewish student
would enjoy, only 200 of the
approximately 6,300 Jews use
the programs on a regular
basis. Friedman said another
2,000 use the facilities once in
For example, Hillel held
Yom Kippur services in the
University of Florida
auditorium. The services were
conservative, and afterward, a
buffet-style dinner was served
at Hillel to break the fast. Over
the two-day period, many
Jewish students attended the
"Passover is another time a
large group of students come
to Hillel," Friedman said.
Although the students' in-
terest increase during holiday
time, Friedman said there is
still a great lack of interest.
He said he feels this lack of
interest has a lot to do with the
over-assimilation of the Jewish
community into the American
mainstream, and the increas-
ing materialism of the Jewish
"Many Jews come to
Gainesville instead of going
somewhere else because they
think they don't need or want
the (Jewish) life," Friedman
said. "There is no environment
in Gainesville where Jewish
people can talk."
Markovitz said she thinks
much of the students' apathy
comes from their fear of trying
something new.
"Hillel attracts a wide varie-
ty of people," she said. "Some
people are afraid to try it
because they aren't sure what
to expect."
"Or," she added, "they are
afraid to go because Hillel isn't
looked upon as a big social
group like fraternities and
sororities are."
Markovitz also said many
Jews may be trying to rebel
against their upbringing.
"The kids leave the home
and the parents who have
always imposed the religion,"
she said. "They take a total
swing to fry to prove
something, but they need it
(religion) now more than
Many people who come to
Hillel as freshmen were active
in Jewish youth groups in their
Markovitz, who had been ac-
tive in her B'nai B'rith youth
organization in high school,
has already experienced some
of Hillel's programs.
She recently was sent to
Washington, D.C. with a
group called Network for a
protest against Kurt
Waldheim, the President of
Austria. Waldheim was proven
to have Nazi connections, but
is not on the list that bans all
outsiders, with Nazi connec-
tions from this country. The
group wants his name on the
list. She became involved with
Network through Hillel.
"Hillel provides students
with a stepping stone to other
Jewish groups in the communi-
ty," Markovitz said. "That's
how I became involved with
Hillel offers culture pro-
grams such as Israeli dancing,
sponsors weekly religious ser-
vices and provides social op-
portunities for Jewish
students to meet and share a
common background.
Hillel is not necessarily
restricted to performing only
Orthodox, Reform or Conser-
vative services. Friedman said
he will perform one type of
service or all three depending
on the student interest.
"Gainesville," Friedman
said, "is a hard place to be an
Orthodox Jew. There are no
kosher markets and there
aren't too many true Orthodox
Hillel is the only place in
town where Jews who keep
kosher can buy kosher food.
Many of the students who
use Hillel do not originally
come looking for an Orthodox
environment. Many of them
often come for one specific
aspect of Hillel.
"Many of the people came
originally for the social aspect
of Hillel and are now involved
in things they never planned
on," Markovitz said.
Currently, members of Hillel
are workuia; on long-term pro-
grams such as helping the
University Services Depart-
ment plan for effective Jewish
programming on campus and
planning events such as the
^'Expression of Sorrow." The
Expression of Sorrow was a
gathering where Jewish
students were invited to wear
a black arm-band to express
their grief of terrorism,
especially the bombing of a
Turkish synagogue.
Markovitz said that it is
through these programs that
Hillel benefits the whole
Jewish community.
"It all overlaps," said
Markovitz. "Even though they
(Jewish students) may not
realize it, or even think they
want it, Hillel is still in their

major European currencies,
Israel's exports to America re-
tained the monetary level of
the previous year.
"In 1985, Israel exported to
the U.S. goods and services in
the sum of $2.2 billion. For
1986, the total sum of Israel's
exports to the U.S. will be
about the same, despite the
fact that we exported more
goods to the U.S. The reason is
the fact that the dollar was
* devalued by more than a third
in the last 12 months in rela-
tion to the European curren-
cies," Litvak explained.
The major items exported to
the U.S. from Israel are
diamonds, machinery, metal
products, electronics, textiles,
processed food and agriculture
6roducts, Litvak noted,
iamonds are so-^far the
largest item on the Israeli ex-
port list, amounting to a third
of the exports of the Jewish
State to America.
NOTING THAT Israel ex-
ports more to the U.S. than to
the European Economic Com-
munity (EEC), Litvak said
that by 1995, when the FTA
agreement will mature and all
tariffs and customs taxes on
Israeli exports to the U.S. will
be abolished, the Israeli ex-
ports to the U.S. will probably
triple and reach the estimated
sum of $7 billion. Presently,
Israel's total exports globally
are about $6 billion a year.
The FTA agreement also
opened the Israeli market to
American imports, Litvak
pointed out. He said that last
year Israel imported goods
from the U.S. in the sum of
$1.7 billion. "For 1986, we ex-
pect a slight increase in the im-
ports of American goods to
Israel," he said, adding that
Israel imports equipment,
worth about $600 million a
year, and grains in the amount
of $325 million a year. In addi-
tion, Israel imports various
equipment for its defense, he
The 37-year-old Litvak will
be coordinating export and
trade activities from the Israel
Trade Center headquarters in
New York and will oversee the
activities of the Israel Trade
Center regional offices in
Chicago, Los Angeles,
Houston and Philadelphia.
"The FTA agreement is a
key factor in the increasing
development of trade between
the U.S. and Israel, offering
long-term benefits to both na-
tions. For Israel, it enables her
to boost her exports and thus
reduce her dependence on
foreign aid," Litvak asserted.
"For the U.S. it provides a
duty-free gateway to Europe,
by virtue of Israel's tariff-free
pact with the EEC."

was estimated from officials of
Poland's Office of Religious
Beliefs that the Catholic
Church has 15,000 churches
throughout the country and
that new churches are spring-
ing up all over. They express
relief that the thorny issue of
the Carmelite convent at
Auschwitz had been resolved
during the Cardinal of
Cracow's meeting last July in
Geneva with Jewish and
Catholic representatives from
European nations. The Car-
dinal reportedly agreed to sus-
pend construction on the con-
vent, but the issue still appears
to be unresolved.
Andrzey Sawicki, the
representative of Poland's
Religious Office in Lublin
noted that a House of Seven
Faiths, including the Jewish
and Catholic, had been propos-
ed for construction, but that
after an architectural competi-
tion had already been held to
select the most appropriate
design, the Archbishop of
Lublin had suddenly been
directed by the Vatican to
withdraw his keen support for
the interfaith project.
It seemed quite clear to this
visitor that the Office of
Religious Beliefs is committed
to restoring and preserving
Poland's Jewish heritage. Its
program includes repairing
and renewing Jewish
monuments in cemeteries, and
rebuilding synagogues
destroyed by the Nazis, even if
only as museums to remind the
visitor of a once glorious past.

his desk in his downtown of-
fice, spoke passionately about
one person whom he con-
sidered to be a remarkable in-
dividual in espousing Federa-
tion's cause in its early years.
"Rabbi Irving Cohen, rabbi
emeritus of Temple Israel, was
instrumental in the founding
of Federation. He was a
magnificent orator who was
able to inspire his fellow Jews
to support Israel and local
Jewish needs. He helped bring
the community together dur-
ing the Six Day War, deliver-
ing a stirring plea for Israel at
the Royal Poinciana Theater
rally," stated Mr. Tishman.
Mr. Tishman's ac-
complishments were squeezed
into a one-and-half year term
of office instead of the
customary two year Presiden-
cy. "The by-laws were chang-
ed during my term of office to
have the officers and Board of
Directors begin their terms in
June after the election at the
annual meeting. Previously
they took office in January and
since that was right in the mid-
dle of the Federation-UJA
Campaign, the change was
made to allow maximum ef-
forts to be directed to the
Despite his abbreviated term
of office, Mr. Tishman was a
moving force in Federation
during its formative years. His
ability to inspire people to
work together harmoniously
served this community well.
Jerome Tishman moved
from his home town of
Brooklyn, New York to
the Palm Beaches via
South Florida in 1957 and
has been in the insurance
and financial planning
business since then. A
graduate of Florida Atlan-
tic University, he is a past
Board Member of Temple
Israel and served as a
Board Member of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County since its
reorganization in 1962 un-
til 1984. Mr. Tishman is a
past President of the In-
surance Board of the Palm
dating from 1780, in an outly-
ing Warsaw district, and
where 300,000 Jews were
buried, had been totally
destroyed by the Nazis. When
Sigmund Nissenbaum, a par-
ticipant in the Warsaw Ghetto
uprising, and a rare survivor
of Treblinka, come to Warsaw
from West Germany to attend
the 40th anniversary rites, he
went to Brodno to try to find
his family's graves. He was ap-
palled at the destruction.
There is now a Nissenbaum
Foundation, funded at more
than a million dollars, and
reconstruction is well under
way. A striking example of the
nationwide restoration pro-
gram is the synagogue at
Tykocin, 100 miles northeast
of Warsaw, between those
former citadels of Jewish
culture, Lomza and Bialystok.
Originating in 1642, the baro-
que temple has been lovingly
renewed, and visitors are
transported, as in a time cap-
sule, back to the shtetl of
yesteryear. Also restored is
the adjacent yeshivas, now a
museum, and the facades of
the houses facing the
synagogue, the former homes
and the shops of the pro-
sperous Jews of the vibrant,
teeming community, the pro-
totype of hundreds of great
Jewish communities housing
over three million Jews before
the cataclysm.
Another "must" for the
visitor is the National Historic
Institute, adjoining the Great
Synagogue destroyed by the
Nazis. The graceful building
housing the Institute was
rebuilt in the past few years,
and contains a remarkable ex-
hibit of the Holocaust, the
Warsaw Ghetto saga, and
religious and secular Jewish
art objects.
Sponsored by the Polish
Academy of Sciences, it is
privately administered, and its
archives are among the finest
in Europe. The library con-
tains more than 40,000
volumes in Yiddish, Hebrew
and Latin, and one has the
rare privilege of seeing the
original of the diary of
Emanuel Ringelblum, the
chronicler of the dark days of
Warsaw Ghetto life. He scrib-
bled his immortal story on
scraps of paper, now lovingly
preserved in the archives.
The Institute may well be
called the Yad Vashem of War-
saw, and it provides a moving
experience in a journey to this
country inhabited by the
ghosts of a turbulent past as
well as the current generation
of a relative handful of Jews.

Midrasha Issues Forum Involves
Teens In Dialogue On Addiction
Jewish teen-agers listened
intently as a panel composed
of former addicts and addic-
tion experts discussed their ex-
periences recently at the se-
cond Teen/Parent Issues
Forum sponsored by the
Midrasha-Judaica High
School. Afterwards, the
students and their parents
talked about how addiction
could affect them personally
when they were divided into
smaller discussion groups led
by one of the panel
The youth seemed to relate
most to the story of "Jim," a
31-year-old Jewish ex-addict
who had been involved with
drugs for 15 years. He came
from a middle class Jewish
family who did everything
they could to make life easier
for him. "However I began ex-
perimenting with drugs and
became an addict," he told the
Even though he admitted at
the beginning of his talk that
he was "scared" speaking in
front of a group, Jim said that
he was there because "it helps
me to help others."
As he urged them "don't do
drugs," he listed several
things that he had lost for a
long time as a result of his
drug addiction. "I lost myself -
respect, self-esteem, and the
trust of my friends, family and
employers. My aspiration to do
things was gone. I wanted to
go to college and do other
things that young adults do. I
got married but now my kids
are not with me. I spent time
in jail and treatment centers
and almost died twice."
Since he has been off drugs
for the last year and half, he
has had time to reflect on why
he became addicted. "I put
myself in a position where I
couldn't talk to people,
especially my family. My
father would kiss me every
night but I was unable to kiss
him back. He died during my
addiction. Maybe through
guilt, but mostly because I love
my mother very much, my
mother and I are close now.
Jim has back now many of
the things he lost during his
years of addiction. He stressed
to the teens in the audience
that they should get close to
their family. "The relationship
with yourself and with other
people is important. I had no
one to talk to because I
couldn't talk to anyone," he
Ivan Goldberg, head of the
Center for Recovery at JFK
Hospital, related that the is a
reformed alcoholic who came
from a caring family.
"Everyone who tries a drug
doesn't necessarily become an
addict," he said. "Some don't
like that feeling." He used
alcohol to mask his fears. "I
used it throughout my life to
alter my fears until I came to
grips with it."
"No one starts out to be a
drug addict," stated
psychiatrist Al Rosen who
counsels addicts in his private
practice. "It is a myth that
because a person uses drugs,
he is bent on self-destruction.
We try drugs and we are con-
vinced that we will not become
addicted. Some can do this but
many cannot."
Neil Newstein, Executive
Director of the Jewish Family
and Children's Service, urged
the students to learn from
each other tonight. "Share, be
open. The best drug is a hug."
Teen-agers are convinced that
nothing bad will happen to
them but life isn't like that,"
he said.
The evening was moderated
by psychotherapist Dr. Norma
Schulman who had taught at
Midrasha and had a good rap-
port with the students. Ann
Lynn Lipton, Midrasha Direc-
tor, commended Dr. Schulman
and her fellow panel members
by saying. "The issues that
face Jewish teens are ones
which deserve our attention.
We sincerely hope that
through forums such as these
we will foster increased stu-
dent awareness and parental
involvement. I want to com-
mend the members of the
panel for giving of their time
and knowledge to the

Rabin Looks At
Defense Spending
"The large cuts that have been made in the last few
years to the defense budget have exposed us to serious
risks," Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin recently
told defense reporters. "If this should continue it will
damage the defense of the state in the near and distant
In the past four years Israel's economic woes have forced
the country to reduce its domestic spending on defense
from an estimated $3.2 billion in 1982 to $2.5 billion in
1986. U.S. military aid, currently at $1.8 billion, is in addi-
tion to the domestic total.
The Minister points out that, for the first time in Israel's
history, this year the welfare budget is greater than the
defense budget. "There has been no other defense minister
who has made cuts like I have." He cited reductions in the
number of career army staff, fighter planes, tanks, ar-
tillery pieces, and combat units. He added that he has
reduced procurement as well as research and development.
The budget cuts have also meant a reduction in field exer-
cises throughout the armed forces. "Those who think that
the Israel Defense Forces will not pay the price in its com-
bat capability are sorely mistaken,' he said.
Rabin recently announced that he would request a 10 per-
cent increase in the defense budget for the coming year. "I
have come to the conclusion that we will not be able to
abide by this budget without substantially damaging the
quality of the remaining forces.
Jerusalem Poet defense correspondent Hirsh Goodman
has written that "all indicators projected relative
economic and population growth, procurment trends, and
future Israeli military budget forecasts point to the same
conclusion. Israel simply cannot keep up with the (Middle
East) arms race."
Defense analysts note that since 1983 Syria alone has ac-
quired substantial quantities of sophisticated military hard-
ware, including Soviet-built surface-to-air and surface-to-
surface missiles. Within the year the Syrians are also ex-
pected to receive Soviet MiG-29 fighter-bombers to rival
Israel's F-15's and F-16's.
Rabin noted that the Syrians spend half their national
budget on the army $1 billion more than Israel each year.
But ne added that with Syria the only country in the region
in a position to threaten Israel, "the situation in the Arab
world makes it easier for us."

Shamir Opposition Qualified
For International Peace Conference
BONN (JTA) Israeli
Premier Yitzhak Shamir has
qualified his long-standing op-
position to an international
conference for Middle East
peace in a wide-ranging inter-
view published in the West
German daily, Die Welt.
He also repeated Israel's
strong denial that it was in any
way involved with or
knowledgeable of the transfer
of funds paid by Iran for
American weapons to the Con-
tra rebels seeking to over-
throw the Sandinista govern-
ment of Nicaragua.
WITH RESPECT to an in-
ternational conference to
resolve the Arab-Israeli con-
flict, Shamir told Die Welt, "1
do not think, that such a con-
ference would contribute
anything to peace in our
region.,r He added, however,
"Under certain circumstances
I do not oppose such a
He explained that if it took
place "after we had reached an
understanding with one
neighbor or another, then, an
international conference could
maybe be helpful in confirming
the areas of understanding or
providing guarantees."
Shamir denied reports that
Israel and the Soviet Union
were engaged in direct con-
tacts aimed at improving their
relations. He insisted there has
been no follow-up of the brief,
unsuccessful meeting between
Israeli and Soviet represen-
tatives in Helsinki last August.
widespread reports that Israel
provided arms to Reagan
regimes in Latin America,
Shamir said weapons were
supplied to some countries in
the region, but only to
legitimate governments, not to
private groups such as the
Reagan-supported Contras.
He defended Israel's ship-
ment of arms to Iran as a favor
to the U.S. "With the United
States, we have a strategic
cooperation agreement and
when they ask us for help we
are ready to assist," he said.
Shamir said he knew nothing
of an alleged request by Iraq to
buy arms in Israel or of a re-
quest by Iran to blockade the
Gulf of Aqaba to prevent arms
from reaching Iraq from

Dinitz On Relations
With Egypt
Israel's relations with Egypt have improved, but have
not yet reached the level Jerusalem had hoped for in the
wake of the September meeting between Egypt's Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak and then-Israeli Prime Minister
Shimon Peres. But according to Simcha Dinitz, "the very
fact that dialogue has been opened and discussions are tak-
ing place ... is important after two-and-a-half years of a
total freeze."
Dinitz, a former ambassador to the United States, serves
on the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.
He told Near East Report recently that "there are some
- signs of an improvement. However, there are still some
obstacles to be overcome." One such obstacle is the conti-
nuing anti-Israel propaganda in the Egyptian press.
"There are two varieties," Dinitz noted. "One is in the
opposition papers, which attack Israel but mean Mubarak."
Tne other appears in government-controlled media and
sometimes criticizes Israel as a way to win points for Egypt
in the Arab world. Dinitz said it was worth noting the dif-
ference, "but both are unacceptable, and we are calling
Egypt's attention to this almost on a daily basis."
After the Alexandria summit, Egyptian officials painted
Peres' agreement to an international conference on the
Middle East as a major concession, one to which they in-
tend to hold Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir. But Dinitz
said "we must be clear what an international forum is and
is not." He explained that Peres agreed to an international
forum which would make it easier for Jordan's King Hus-
sein and non-PLO Palestinian Arabs to enter negotiations
with Israel.
However, Israel continues to believe that "the only way
to settle the dispute is through direct negotiations. The
reason we are searching for an international forum is to...
support such negotiations." Acceptance of such an ar-
rangement "was never intended to replace direct negotia-
tions." Dinitz said that what Peres had in mind was a
forum which would function "only as an opening act to the
commencement of direct negotiations."
Countries which did not have diplomatic relations with
both Israel and the Arab states involved should not par-
ticipate, he added. This was an apparent reference to Arab
demands that UN Security Council members participate in
any conference. Neither tne Soviet Union nor China, both
Security Council members, have formal ties with Israel.
Dinitz said that although Israel's national unity govern-
ment had achieved success in such tasks as controlling in-
flation, withdrawing Israeli troops from Lebanon, and im-
proving ties with Egypt, "I warn against people falling in
love with it .. The unity government is an exceptional
"While it might be convenient for politicians to have a
large, automatic majority (Labor, Likud and their allies
control about three-fourths of the Knesset), this is not
healthy. In a democracy you need a strong party in govern-
ment and a strong party in opposition."
However, Dinitz said that "as long as the government led
by Shamir follows the coalition agreement and realizes, as
the Peres-led government did, that this is not a Likud
government as that was not a Labor government," it could
finish its full term through fall 1988.
Dinitz also discussed the disappearance from Great Bri-
tain of Mordechai Vanunu the former Israeli nuclear
technician who sold information and pictures of Israel's
Dimona reactor to a London newspaper. Vanunu is now in
Israel, awaiting trial. Dinitz said that "to the best of my
knowledge there is no problem between the government of
Israel and the government of Great Britain.
He acknowledged that questions continued to be raised in
England by the press, "which has an appetite to explore a
colorful story, and by some members of Parliament who did
not need the Vanunu affair to criticize Israel." Dinitz
doubted whether those Parliamentarians would question
their own government if it "put its hands on a spy who had
gone abroad and sold secrets of British national security."

Swiss Ban Entrance To Neo-Nazi Propagandists
Justice Ministry has banned
entry into Switzerland of
Henri Roques and Pierre
Guillaume, French neo-Nazi
propagandists who deny the
Holocaust occurred.
The ban, to be in effect for
three years, is based on a 1948
law which prohibits political
statements by non-residents
without permission. Roques
and Guillaume held a press
conference here last month to
propagate their views though
they were denied permission
by the police.
The Justice Ministry acted
on the complaint of Geneva
Police Chief Bernard Ziegler.
Unlike France, Switzerland
has no law forbidding pro-
paganda against minority
groups because ot race or
religion. The Roques-
Guillaume incident may lead to
such a measure.

Israeli Court Ruling On Converts Hailed
Conservative and Reform
Judaism movements of
America have hailed as a vic-
tory for pluralism the Israeli
Supreme Court decision barr-
ing the label of a convert on
identity cards, but the Or-
thodox say they have merely
lost the battle, but not the
fight. The Israeli Supreme
Court ruled Dec. 2 that the In-
terior Ministry may not in-
scribe the word "converted"
on the identification card of
any person converted to
Judaism. The landmark ruling

Although the Supreme
Court decision on the case of
Shoshana Miller, a woman con-
verted in 1982 by a Reform
rabbi in Colorado, has en-
couraged the Reform and Con-
servative leaders, they admit
that the larger issues of
tolerance and religious
pluralism remain to be
three years after her conver-
sion and applied for citizen-
ship. The Interior Ministry
refused to register her as a
Jew but after she took her case
to the Supreme Court, the
Ministry agreed to register her
as a convert.
Although this label on an
identity card ostensibly con-
tradicts a Jewish law which
forbids distinguishing a con-
vert from other Jews, the Or-
thodox would require it
because in their view, persons
converted by Reform or Con-
servative rabbis are not really
Jews and shouldn't be granted
automatic citizenship.
"When it comes to identity,
there is no compromise," said
Rabbi Moshe Sherer, Presi-
dent of Agudath Israel of
America. "It is not a business
deal which can be settled by
everyone giving up some
points. It goes to the very
heart of Jewish survival," he
SHERER SAID the issue of
"Who is a Jew" is potentially
one of the most divisive. "The
issue will not die because at
stake is a question as to
whether the Jewish people
should be split into two
groups, which could not inter-
marry. This is a very possible
"This could happen if
Reform rabbis, who include
men and women who are ad-
mitted atheists and perform
intermarriages, would even-
tually transplant this chaos to
the Holy Land," Sherer said.
Sherer said the Conservative
movement has damaged itself
by aligning with the Reform on
this issue. But, in Sherer's
view, a Conservative conver-
sion is not acceptable either
although performed according
to halacha, because Conser-
vative rabbis do not ascribe to
the Orthodox belief that Torah
was divinely revealed to Moses
at Mount Sinai. "The Conser-
vatives have tampered with
halacha a Cohen can marry
a divorcee, they allow driving
to the synagogue on the Sab-
bath they have made it a
religion of convenience,"
Sherer said.
Rabbi Benjamin Kreitman,
executive vice president of the
United Synagogue of America,
Conservative, said the Or-
thodox objections center on
the question of who is really a
rabbi. "From our point of
view, there should be an accep-
tance of the pluralistic stan-
dard; we accept one another's
Chief Rabbinate of Israel was
the key decision maker on ac-
ceptability of conversions,
Kreitman said. Some of the
cases, like Miller's, have gone
to the courts. Others have
been required to submit to
"blitz" conversions, a one day
quickie conversion which
usually requires the woman to
go to the mikvah and the man
to let a drop of blood as a sym-
bolic circumcision. Many of the
Falashas were required to
have this type of conversion,
and objected to it as a
Kreitman proposed as one
solution a joint Bet Din (Rab-
binical Court) with Reform,
Conservative and Orthodox
Rabbis which would decide col-
lectively on the standards of
an acceptable conversion.
Kreitman said the Reform
movement should compromise
on conversions and "conform
to proper standards acceptable
by halacha." However, he said,
"we want to see some opening
up of the Israeli society ... To
identify any person as a con-
vert is an abomination; if they
do not want to accept the con-
version that's a different
RABBI Alexander
Schindler, president of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, Reform, said
although he is "exceedingly
pleased" with the ruling, he
fears that "those responsible
for carrying out the law will
find some way of contravening
it administratively." He said
even if the ruling led to the
withdrawal of religious parties
from the unity government, it
would not hurt the
"The bulk of the Orthodox
community does not want to
change the Law of Return it
comes mostly from Lubavit-
chers," he said.
Rabbi Charles Kroloff, presi-
dent of the Association of
Reform Zionists (ARZA), call-
ed the ruling "a giant step for-
ward for religious pluralism in
Israel" and "a victory for the
democratic spirit of the State
of Israel." ARZA financed
Miller's lawsuit. "The current
religious tensions in Israel can
be alleviated if all parties will
utilize the legal process and ac-
cept the judgement of Israel's

Jews Meet FarmersAnd
Understand One Another Senior News
Several local and national
Jewish agencies this past year
have begun to seriously ex-
amine how they can help
farmers across the nation
plowed under by debt.
Partly out of compassion,
partly due to concern that anti-
Semitic extremists are
recruiting the disaffected
agrarians, these agencies have
sought to organize events and
form coalitions with
agricultural organizations.
On Nov. 10, the Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council of
Indianapolis and Women's
American ORT joined with the
Indiana Rural Crisis, Inc. to
sponsor a public meeting at the
Jewish Community Center at-
tended by more than 50
farmers, some who drove 170
miles round-trip, and maybe
100 members of the Jewish
The two groups found they
understood each other well,
which was the goal of the
meeting, JCRC staff associate
Jim Borman and Crisis Line
president Susan Bright told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy. Borman said the Jewish
participants felt helpful just by
listening to the farmers
describe their predicaments in
small group discussions.
Bright, who said she often
counsels worried farmers on
her organization's toll-free
hotline, noted that farmers
very much appreciate "just
telling our story to someone."
"We came home very, very
high," recalled Bright, whose
own family farm in Center-
ville, Ind., is threatened with
closure due to debt.
"Psychologically, that meeting
did those farmers that came an
awful lot of good."
Indiana agriculture ranges
from livestock, poultry and
ducks to grain and specialty
crops like mint and popcorn,
Bright said, and only hog far-
ming is financially viable these

Former Slave Laborers Reminded
To File Compensation Claims
The United Restitution
Organization (URO) in
Toronto and Montreal is
reminding former slave
laborers who worked in the
factories of Flick-Dynamit-
Nobel during World War II
that they have unitl Dec. 31
to file compensation claims.
The giant Flick conglomerate,
now known as Feldmuhle Nobel
A-G, was taken over last year by
the Deutsche Bank, which made
available a lump sum fund of 5
million Deutschmarks to be used
as compensation for slave labor.
John Stahr of Montreal's URO
office cautions, however, that
these payments are for labor, not
for persecution. Stahr said all
claims must be fullv documented
Asian Gains
Israel's Pesident Chaim
Herzog, returning from an
18-day visit to the Far East,
Australia, New Zealand and
Oceania, said that Israel
should give preference to in-
creasing economic and
political ties with the region.
Herzog emphasized the impor-
tance of the area, which he
said had the world's "highest
economic momentum" for
Israeli exports.
He said demonstrations in
Malaysia and the recall of In-
donesia's ambassador to pro-
test his visit to Singapore
"would have no detrimental ef-
fect on Israel." (Both coun-
tries have large Moslem
populations.) Herzog also stop-
ped in Hong Kong, Sri Lanka,
Frji and Tonga. "The Prime
Minister of Tonga told the
President that Saudi Arabia
had offered substantial finan-
cial aid and Libya had pledged
to supply unlimited quantities
of oil if Tonga would sever its
diplomatic ties with Israel, but
the Prime Minister rejected
the Arab pressure.
(Near East Report)
and applicants must prove they
worked in the factories of Flick,
which manufactured everything
from explosives to toilet paper,
but the bulk of the payments will
go to survivors who worked in the
company's munitions factories.
THE BEST WAY to document
claims, Stahr said, is to enclose
proof that restitution for persecu-
tion has already been made by the
West German government. If so-
meone survived a certain concen-
tration camp and was compen-
sated for it 20 years ago, Stahr
gave as an example, he or she very
likely would have been put to
work in a Flick factory and is eligi-
ble for slave labor compensation.
URO has a list of camps whose
inmates were made to work for
Flick or one of its subsidiaries.
However, one slave labor camp
Malchow in Germany was left
off the original eligibility list.
Other German conglomerates
thatr employed slave labor during
the war such as I.G. Farben,
Krupp and Siemens have
already paid out compensation,
Stahr added.
PAYMENTS from Flick-
Dynamit-Nobel are still outstan-
ding because the company's
founder, Friedrich Flick, put off
paying compensation repeatedly
until he died in 1972 at age 90. It
was only after the Deutsche Bank
bought controlling interest in the
company in the largest corporate
takeover in German history, that
compensation payments were ap-
proved, at the urging of the New
York-based Conference on Jewish
Material Claims Against Germany
(Claims Conference).
Stahr said restitution is also
available for anyone who was sent
to Siberia by the Soviet govern-
ment, as a result of fleeing the
There is no deadline for such
claims. Although official proof is
difficult to acquire, Stahr said
other f^rms of proof could include:
a postmark (cancelled stamp) of
the place of imprisonment, show-
ing also the addressee's name, or
ideally, a marriage certificate or a
birth certificate of a child born in
the place in question.

Israel's Iran-Contra
Involvement Assessed
Rabbi Alexander Schindler has
questioned "the wisdom of
Israel's involvement in the
scheme" of the Reagan Ad-
ministration to sell arms to
Iran and divert the proceeds to
the Contra rebels in
Nicaragua. But he deplored
what he called the Administra-
tion's "attempts to scapegoat
Israel for this misadventure."
Schindler, President of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, spoke last
West Bank Realities
Israel's decision last month to expel Akram Haniyah,
editor of an east Jerusalem weekly, and to cancel the work
permit of Mohammed Shadid, a political science professor
at An Najah University in Nablus, refocused attention on
Israeli administration of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Israel gained control of the territories in the 1967 Six-Day
War, taking the West Bank also known as Judea and
Samaria after defeating a Jordanian attack.
The West Bank is home to approximately 800,000
Palestinian Arabs; about 500,000 more live in the Gaza
Strip. Since 1967 approximately 60,000 Israeli Jews have
settled in the territories as well. Judea and Samaria are the
heart of Biblical Israel and the area's strategic central
If the expulsion goes through Haniyah appealed to
Israel's Supreme Court, but the court has upheld all
previous orders the journalist will join more than 30
other people expelled from the territories since August,
1985. Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin reinstated deporta-
tion (suspended by the Begin and Shamir governments
from 1977 to 1984) after a wave of terrorism in the ter-
ritories and in Israel earlier in the year.
Expulsions are administrative, not judicial, punishments
by the military authority overseeing the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. They can take place without trials.
An Israeli military official was quoted as saying, "You
cannot find any connection between Akram Haniyah and a
pure terrorist action. But ... he was involved day and
night in order to deepen and enlarge the infrastructure of
Fatah there ... What Amnesty International would call
'political activity,' we consider hostile activity. You can
never point your finger at the moment when so-called
political activity stops and real terrorism begins."
Shadid conducted the public opinion survey last fall
which showed high levels of support for the PLO and for
anti-Israel terrorism among Palestinian Arabs in the ter-
ritories. He claimed that his work permit was canceled
after he refused a demand by Israeli military officials to re-
nounce the way the poll was presented in ALFajr, a spon-
soring east Jerusalem newspaper. But the authorities said
the action, which means Shadid will not be able to stay in
the territories, came as a result of the professor's involve-
ment with Fatah.
No doubt Israel's critics will advertise these steps as ex-
amples of "Israeli repression of Palestinian Arabs. But
the reality is quite different, Knesset Member Simcha
Dinitz explained in a Near East Report interview recently.
According to Dinitz the Haniyah and Shadid cases repre-
sent only one part of Israel's dual policy for the West Bank
and Gaza.
The crackdown supplements a decision to allow Palesti-
nian Arabs in general maximum control over their daily
lives, he said. Jerusalem hopes to increase 'the level of
moderation by allowing a greater degree of responsibility
on the one hand and by removing the obstacles the incite-
ment that extremist elements of the territories are conduc-
ting on the other."
Dinitz said that the appointment of Arab mayors to
replace Israeli military officers in all West Bank towns and
the decision to permit reopening- of the Cairo-Amman Bank
in Nablus and branches elsewhere are part of a
strategy meant "to increase economic development and in-
vestment." Increased prosperity should lead to increased
social stability, he said. In such an environment Palestinian
Arabs might be more likely to seek a peaceful settlement
with Israel and less likely to follow the PLO.
Meanwhile, Jordan has announced an ambitious five-year
development plan for the territories. It describes the pro-
gram for which it must seek international funding as
an effort to promote "steadfastness" of the Palestinians in
the face of what Amman calls the "harsh occupation.
Dinitz said Israel does not care how Jordan labels its efforts
"so long as the deeds strengthen the civilian infrastruc-
ture" and encourage moderation.
The PLO understands the threat to itself presented by
these complementary, if separate, Israeli and Jordanian in-
itiatives. Representatives of both extreme and mainline
wings of the organization warned Palestinians against
Success for the two-pronged Israeli policy remains uncer-
tain. But the effort gives the he to those who claim that
Jerusalem has embarked on a program of oppression.

Reich told Israeli reporters
at a press conference that
"The U.S. Congress has not
been critical of Israel's role"
though it has been highly
critical of the Administration.
"Several leading Con-
gressmen have in fact gone on
record to express their full
belief in Israel s explanation of
her activities," Reich said.
Israel has admitted
facilitating the shipment of
U.S. arms to Iran, at the
specific request of the Reagan
Administration, but has stead-
fastly denied any role in or
knowledge of the transfer of
monies to the Contras. Israel
was directly implicated in the
transfer by U.S. Attorney
General Edwin Meese at a
White House press conference
Nov. 25.
President Reagan, in an in-
terview with Time magazine
published Nov. 26, did a not
mention Israel by name'but

"another country" for diver-
ting profits from the arms sale

Schindler assailed Reagan's
remarks. "It is not Jerusalem
but Washington that has an
obsession with overturning the
Sandinista regime," he said.
"In the welter of rumor and
confusion surrounding this af-

acted at the behest of, with the
knowledge of, and with the
consent of the Reagan Ad-
ministration. It did so as a
faithful ally of our country. To
say otherwise is to pervert the
truth and to betray a friend.

for the various attempts to
scapegoat Israel for this

ing to supply arms to Iran,

"Israel, too, has long-term
geopolitical considerations at
play. It calculated that the
Persian nation distant from
Israel, hostile to many Arab
states is not as great a
threat to its security as is

Nevertheless, Schindler
said, "Israel was tainted by
the blunder of this multi-
nation gamble, and the moral
authority of its own stance
against state-sponsored ter-
rorism was severely im-
Jaired." Reich said in
erusalem that Israel must act
in accordance with her own in-
terests while respecting the
policies of a close ally such as
the United States.
On Jan. 25, Rabbi Isaac and Lacy Vander Walde, who will be

The Danger
Of Tunnel Vision
There is a danger that recriminations over the Reagan
Administration's opening to Iran and consequent person-
nel shake-up will obscure some important facts about
American Middle East policy in the past few years. That
policy, made and executed by President Reagan, Secretary
of State George Shultz, several national security advisers
and others has, in general, served this country well. The
current Washington drama of the Iran affair who said
what to the President and when should not blind either
policymakers or the public to the strengths of the Ad-
ministration's overall Middle East policy.
The Administration has come to understand certain
tough realities in the region. These include the use by
Syria, Iran, and Libya of terrorism to obstruct the peace
process and weaken Western influence; the fact that U.S.
diplomatic initiatives cannot substitute for the willingness
of some states in the region or lack of willingness among
certain Arab parties to reach a settlement; and the im-
portance of Israel as America's most reliable Middle
Eastern ally. These points may seem obvious, but they have
not been universally recognized by previous Administra-
tions, and their strongest advocates in this one have been
people at the center of the current controversy: President
Reagan, Secretary of State Shultz, Attorney General
Meese and others.
They correctly see the Middle East as an arena of
U.S.-Soviet confrontation. They appreciate Israel's role as
a strategic asset. This is crucial, because, important as they
are, the Iraq-Iran war and the examination of our attemp-
ted opening to Tehran are not the only issues in the region.
At least as important are developments in Damascus.
Syria's leader, Hafez Assad, gave a major address
recently in which he reiterated his intention to continue his
country's massive military buildup despite its
devastating economic effect. Assad also repeated his call
for "martyrdom or victory." Israeli Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir noted that "Assad believes we have no right
to exist, and he is preparing his army for a confrontation."
Defense Minister Rabin said Israel should "take seriously
the efforts of Syria to strengthen its army."
So should the United States. Some analysts here and in
Israel believe that Assad is planning a lightning attack to
regain as much of the Golan Heights as possible and to
"punish" Israeli cities and towns with missiles and long-
range artillery. Then, having transformed regional politics
to ms advantage, he would accept a Soviet-U.S. ceasefire.
An America suffering from monomania over Iran or a
self-induced foreign policy paralysis cannot send either
Damascus or its patrons in Moscow a credible message of
deterrence. Conditions have not changed; the Reagan-
Shultz overview is still valid. State-sponsored terrorism
highlighted again by the conviction of two Syrian agents
for a March bombing in West Berlin the Syrian-Soviet
axis and Iranian-backed fundamentalism challenge U.S. in-
terests. Israel remains America's most reliable ally in the
region. To lose sight of that now would be truly dangerous.

JNF Marks
In Helsinki
More than 2,000 people, most
of them Gentiles, recently at"
tended a David Ben-Gurion
centennial gathering in
Helsinki, Finland, under the
auspices of Jewish National
Fund World Chairman Moahe
Rivlin. The ghaJrm^n back
from a tour of Scandinavia,
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency last week that the in-
terest in JNF's work among
non-Jews in all the Scandina-
vian countries was
phenomenal especially in
view of the small Jewish com-
munities in those countries.
In Norway, he said, another
mass rally took place with a
Ben-Gurion-JNF theme. In
Denmark, Rivlin was welcom-
ed at the Royal Palace and
discussed with a clearly
fascinated Crown Prince
Frederik Israeli methods of af-
forestation and land reclama-
tion. Rivlin said the Prince was
both informed and interested
in matters of ecology and
quality of life in Israel.
At the gathering in Oslo,
Rivlin said: "Some 60 percent
of Israel's total area is the
Negev, and we are enjoined to
pursue David Ben-Gurion's vi-
sion of turning this barren
space into fertile and produc-
tive land."

Extradition Of Israeli Deferred
Candle lighting Time
Dec. 19 5:16 p.m.
Cabinet recently deferred
debate over a demand by Ab-
sorption Minister Yaacov Tsur
to overturn Justice Minister
Avraham Sharir's decision
against the extradition to
France of William Nakash, 25,
sentenced in absentia to life
imprisonment for the murder
of an Arab in the town of
Besancon in eastern France in
1983. The Supreme Court has
upheld extradition.
A sharp exchange developed
between the two ministers at
the session. Premier Yitzhak
Shamir ruled to postpone
debate until after a three-
justice panel of the Supreme
Court heard an appeal last
week against Sharir s decision.
The appeal was lodged by the
Civil Rights Movement (CRM).
AS A RESULT of Sharir's
stand, Nakash, an Orthodox
Jew, will go free. A law pro-

Israel Has 33
Cases Of AIDS
The Health Ministry has set up
seven blood testing centers
around the country to check
for AIDS Acquired Immune
Deficiency Syndrome which
can be transmitted through
blood transfusions. To date, 33
cases of AIDS have been
diagnosed in Israel, of which
17 were fatal according to
Ministry figures.
Dr. Moshe Mashiach of the
Health Ministry said 20 of the
diagnosed patients were
homosexuals, 10 were
hemophiliacs, one an in-
travenous drug user, and two
others were infected by
transfusions of contaminated
blood. Blood donated for
transfusions has been screen-
ed for AIDS since the beginn-
ing of the year.
SO FAR, 10 samples were
found to have the AIDS an-
tibodies and the donors have
been located and asked to
undergo further tests.
Mashiach pointed out that the
presence of the antibody does
not necessarily mean the car-
rier has the disease. But the
checking process has spared at
least 30 transfusion recipient

Jewish Underground
Escapee Detained
According to his lawyer,

Ira Rapoport, the only
suspected member of a Jewish
terrorist underground in the
West Bank to escape arrest,
was taken into custody at Ben-
Gurion Airport last week on
his return from the United
States. He was released on bail
by a Petach Tikva magistrate
pending formal charges.
He is expected to be charged
with membership in a terrorist
organization and participation
in attacks on prominent
Palestinians in the West Bank.
RAPOPORT, a resident of
the West Bank settlement of
Shilo, was sent to the U.S. as
an emissary of the Gush
Emunim. When the Jewish
underground members were
rounded up two years ago and
brought to trial, Rapoport re-
mained in the U.S. rather than
face charges.

Apart from homosexuals,
few persons have availed
themselves of the free blood
testing service. The govern-
ment's Special AIDS Policy
Committee, which initiated the
program, has recommended
that the testing centers accept
anyone producing an iden-
tification card without need
for referral by a doctor.

Legal circles here object to the
proposed measure on grounds
that it would jeopardize
Israel's extradition treaties
with other countries.
Sharir was under heavy
pressure from nationalist and
Orthodox circles in Israel to
reject the French extradition
request. They claimed the
murder was an act of self-
defense against anti-Semitic,
anti-Israel acts by Arabs and
therefore justified. The French
court that convicted Nakash
found that the murder stemm-
ed from a quarrel between two
business partners.
Another argument against
extradition was that Nakash's
life would be endangered in a
French prison where many of
the inmates are Arab. At-
torney General Yosef Harish,
who has decried the failure to
extradite Nakash, said.Sunday
that he would nevertheless do
his duty as Attorney General
and defend the Justice
Minister before the Supreme
Court "in accordance with nor-
mal procedures."

Iranian Jews Coming To San Francisco
Jews fleeing religious
persecution in Iran have reset-
tled in the San Francisco area
in the last few months, and
more are expected to join them
soon. Because of the new in-
flux, Jewish Family and
Children's Services (JFCS) in
San Francisco recently hired a
Farsi-speaking caseworker,
Karen Pliskin, to help resettle
the Iranians.
Within the last several mon-
ths, 15 Iranian Jews have
resettled here, and 35 more
are expected to arrive soon.
This marks the largest exodus
to the Bay Area from Iran
since the wave of Jews leaving
after the popular Islamic
revolution overthrew Shah
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in
early 1979, according to Gayle
Zahler, supervisor of emigre
services at the JFCS.
At that time, about 800 Ira-
nian Jews about 200 families
settled in the Bay Area. Ira-
nian Jews in the area now total
about 1,500. The Jews who will
be arriving in the next several
months will be coming from
processing points in Vienna
and Rome, explains Zahler.
About 60 to 70 Iranian Jews
headed for North America ar-
rive every week in Vienna, she
Most of the recent refugees
have been unable to take
money from Iran, asserts
Pliskin, noting that their situa-
tion belies the popular
misconception in the Jewish
community that Iranian Jews
have fled with all their wealth.
Pliskin works with relatives
to find refugees a home and a
job. Financial aid from the
agency can range from very
little if the family can afford
to support newly arrived
members to $1,000 a month
for a family of three, she
Many of the refugees speak
English, although some newly
arrived Iranian Jews do not,
Pliskin says, adding that few
have transferable skills even
though they have founded and
successfully developed their

He told reporters at the air-
port that he stayed there only
to be with his mother who was
ill with cancer. He said the
disease is now in remission,
and he decided to return to
Israel with his wife, Orit, and
five children because he wants
to raise his children in Israel.
Meanwhile, in Jerusalem,
Rabbi Moshe Levinger, the
Gush Emunim leader from
Hebron, and other West Bank
Jewish settlers continued to
maintain their vigil outside the
homes of Premier Yitzhak
Shamir and Vice Premier
Shimon Peres in support of
demands for Presidential par-
dons for underground
members still serving their

"These are the people who
really tried to stay on in Iran,"
says Pliskin about the new
wave of refugees. "Mavbe
they felt there was hope uiat
the economy would become
better. But the conditions have
become worse for all
She adds: "One of the major
problems is that the Iranian
Jews feel that there hasn't
been much outreach by toe
American Jews not much of

them and their culture not
as much as with the Russian
About 500 Jews are believed
to be jailed in Iran, many
because they are accused of be-
ing Zionists. The lone Jewish
representative in Parliament,
Manoucher Kahni Nikruz, was
arrested last month on what
has been characterized by the
Western press as trumped up
charges of sexual abuse. The
arrest is believed to be in reac-
tion to the American media's
publicizing Israel's role in
organizing secret deliveries of
American arms to Iran as part
of a White House plan to
secure the freedom of
American hostages being held
by pro-Iranian terrorists in
Although Israeli officials
report that some 40,000 to
50,000 Jews remain in Iran,
refugees place the remnant at
15,000 to 20,000, many of
them elderly people afraid of
uprooting themselves
despite daily harassment and
threats. According to emigres,
no terror campaign now is
under way against Jews in
Iran. What is taking place,
however, is the continuation of
a slow and systematic policy of
discrimination against all
religious minorities, says
The policy has anti-Semitic
and anti-Zionist overtones, she
reports. Jewish children atten-
ding mixed schools are forced
to chant "Death to Israel" and
other anti-Zionist slogans
before they can enter school
each day. Some, Pliskin says,
have been pressed to convert.
Jews also find it increasingly
difficult to get necessary
licenses for commercial ac-
tivities, Pliskin adds.
Jewish families, she says,
have become anxious about
spiriting their children out of
Iran because of what refugees
describe as attempts to indoc-
trinate them in school. A four-
year-old statute makes it il-
legal for children under the
age of 12 to leave Iran.
Iranian Jews coming to the
Bay Area report that many of
the Jews want to escape being
drafted into the army for the
war against Iraq. Those who
leave do so with a heavy heart,
explains Pliskin, noting that
Jews have been living in Iran
since 700 BCE.
Prejudice against the Jews
began before the State of
Israel was born, with the Jam
Abbasi laws which considered
Jews and other non-Moslems
to be polluted. Those laws
were repealed during the reign
of the Shah's father, who sup-
ported religious minorities.
When Israel became a State,
the Shah maintained
diplomatic contact with Israel;
many Iranians left for Israel,
but others came back to Iran
from their self-imposed exile.
The exodus of Iranian Jews
began in the tumultuous weeks
before Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini returned from exile
to lead the revolution against
the Shah. At the time, El Al
airplanes were permitted to fly
into Tehran and return to
Israel with thousands of Jews,
many of them wealthy
In his first speeches, Kho-
meini promised that Iran's
75,000 Jews would be
respected and protected. But
after the seizure of the
American Embassy in 1979,
grassroots revolutionary
organizations began harassing
Jews in Tehran and other
