Women's Division 1985-87
In a recent interview Mollie
Fitterman reflected upon her
term as Women's Division
President from 1985 to the
present. "I'm leaving with ex-
cellent memories," she said.
"Federation is my life." No
wonder Women's Division has
made great strides these past
two years.
The sense of commitment
that women are demonstrating
to the Federation and the total
community is very important
to Mrs. Fitterman. Her efforts
have been directed towards
making Federation and
Women's Division "a good
place to be. Women from all
areas of the community are
now working together. There
is a feeling of friendliness and
camaraderie," she said.
To further this philosophy by
expanding the number of
women who support the aims
and objectives of the Federa-
tion, a series of outreach cof-
fees and open board meetings
were held in many
geographical areas throughout
the county from Eastpointe
in Palm Beach Gardens to
Atlantis to Wellington and
many other places in between
during Mrs. Fitterman's
Under her guidance,
Women's Division continued
to illustrate its commitment to
communal unity and solidarity
among the more that 90
Jewish women's organizations
in the county by holding the
Jewish Women's Assembly, an
annual education day, attend-
ed by close to 400 women. In
1985 Dr. Joyce Brothers gave
the keynote address, "Emerg-
ing Choices for the Jewish
Woman in the 80's." This past
year "Generation to Genera-
tion: Our Link With Tradi-
tion" brought Jewish
genealogist Arthur Kurzweil
to this community.
These past two years, the
Mollie Fitterman (center) is
year's Pacesetter Luncheon,

Business and Professional
Networking Group continued
to offer educational programs
specifically designed to main-
tain the communal involve-
ment of working women. Last
year they expressed their
deepening commitment to
Jewish causes by holding their
own first Campaign event.
One of the areas of which
Mrs. Fitterman is most proud
is leadership development. She
was very involved in
strengthening the process by
which members work their
way up through the ranks to
assume top leadership by first
serving on the committee
level. "We have now
developed a leadership who
have moved right on up
through the various levels,'
she said.
Now about to end her two
year term, Mrs. Fitterman
paid special tribute to her
Campaign Vice President,
Carol Greenbaum, who "ran
the best Campaign in the coun-
try. Our fund-raising was
superlative," she said. During
the past two years, the Lion of
Judah $5,000 minimum
category has grown tremen-
joined by the hostesses of this
Doris Newberger (left) and Vi
dously. "And this year," Mrs.
Fitterman said, "our Paceset-
ters event ($1,200 minimum)
which previously had been held
in public establishments, was
held at a Palm Beach home
with two very gracious
hostesses. It was a successful,
warm affair."
Mrs. Fitterman, a former
teacher who has been a
"Federation wife" (her hus-
band, Bob, is a former Ex-
ecutive Director of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Dayton
and now is acting Endowment
Director of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County)
and helped develop the
Women's Division in Dayton,
is committed to working on
behalf of Federation. "No mat-
ter what other organization I
have worked for, there is no
other place like Federation to
tie us all together and make a
community viable," she said.
This long-time devotion to
Women's Division and Federa-
tion has brought a wealth of
experience and dedication to
her two-year term as Presi-
dent. She can proudly say, "I
feel we're regarded as one of
the best Women's Divisions in
the country."
Israeli Tank Base Commander To
Address Israel Task Force
Israeli Tank Base Com-
mander, Colonel Yakov Hod,
will address the upcoming
monthly meeting of the Israel
Task Force of the Community
Relations Council of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County on Thursday,
April 23, 12:30 p.m., at the
Federation office, 501 So.
Flagler Drive, Suite 305, West
Palm Beach.
The announcement was
made by Dr. Mark Rattinger,
Chairman of the Task Force,
who noted that the Task Force
has been holding a series of
specialized meetings this year
about Israel's economy,
military, and other overall
issues of concern to American
Jewry. "Our last two meetings
featured our new Israel Consul
General for the Southeast
Region, Rahamim Timor, who
gave us an update on Israel's
economy and geo-politics. For
our April meeting, we are very
pleased to welcome Colonel
Hod who will give us a briefing
on the military issues facing
Israel today. We are fortunate
to have this opportunity to
dialogue with one of the
leaders of Israel's military
establishment who will be in
the United States for only one
week before returning to his
command. All members of the
community who are welcome
to attend this special meeting
are asked to make reserva-
tions in advance," Dr. Rat-
tinger said.
Colonel Yakov Hod was born
in Russia and began his
military career as a
paratrooper. He was the se-
cond in command of the Tank
Corps during the 1982 inva-
sion of Lebanon.

Unique Mission To Israel And Bucharest
Celebrates Israel's 40th Anniversary
Jeanne Levy, General Chair-
man of the 1987 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
Countv-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign, has announced that
this community is being given
a "once in a lifetime" oppor-
tunity to participate in the up-
coming National United
Jewish Appeal 40th Anniver-
sary Mission to Europe and
Israel. "I urge those who are
eligible not to miss this unique
mission which is set for Oc-
tober 18-28," stated Mrs.
Levy. It is open to those mak-
ing a $10,000 minimum com-
mitment to the 1988 Jewish
Federation-UJA Campaign.
Mrs. Levy noted that "since
we are eager to see a large
representation of residents
from the Palm Beaches accept
this invitation, our Federation
will provide a subsidy to cover
half the cost of the mission for
those who meet the eligibility
requirements. In addition, Na-
tional UJA will be subventing
the other half of the trip. For
the first time, if a husband and
wife each give a minimum of
$10,000 to our 1988 Campaign,
both will be eligible for

will be celebrating its 40th an-
niversary, we are pleased to
have the chance to participate
H. Irwin Levy To Chair
New Jewish Agency Committee
Irwin Levy takes time out to answer the telephone while
discussing his new role as Chairman of the newly created
Jewish Agency Committee.
Over the past 65 years, the
world Jewish community
through the Jewish Agency
has had to invest monies in
businesses and commercial
operations in Israel in order to
develop the country and pro-
vide employment for new
At the February meeting of
the Board of Governors of the
Jewish Agency in Jerusalem,
H. Irwin Levy, a member of
the Board of Governors and an
active leader in the Jewish
community of the Palm
Beaches, was appointed to
chair a newly established Com-
panies Committee to evaluate
these assets and companies
and to make critical decisions
about restructuring manage-
ment and control of these
"We really believe," stated
Mr. Levy, "that we ought to
go over all of the inventory of
these businesses and take a
look at which ones the Agency
no longer has a reason to own.
We should then try and
dispose of them in the best way
possible in order to receive the
highest reasonable price and
use the money to reduce the
world Jewish debt."
According to Mr. Levy, all
these businesses had real,
legitimate, and proper reasons
for having been started in the
whole enterprise of helping to
build a nation. "Our activities
have almost all been directed
towards assisting immigrants
in settling on the land and
building a lifestyle finding
jobs and helping them become
productive citizens."
As an example Mr. Levy
cited the historical develop-
ment of the most well known
of these businesses.
"Somewhere around 1921 or
1922 the head of the Zionist
groups, primarily Chaim Weiz-
mann then living in England
and forming what is now the
Jewish Agency, realized that
they had to create a way to
help finance people to move to
Israel and to start a life there.
So they set up a loan society.
The loan society eventually
became the Jewish Colonial
Trust which developed into
Bank Leumi."
Mr. Levy went on to recall
other examples including

in an exciting and meaningful
mission of this magnitude. In
addition to having a unique in-
siders' view of Israel through
dialogue with leaders in the
fields of government, educa-
tion, and industry, our com-
munity members will also have
the opportunity to take part in
a pre-mission to Bucharest,
Romania. There, they will visit
the remnants of a once
flourishing Jewish communi-
ty," stated Mrs. Levy.
"It is my hope that our ma-
jor contributors will want to
join with other Jews from
throughout our nation to see
first-hand how their contribu-
tions are critical to supporting
social service programs in
Israel and overseas. I am
especially pleased to note that
participants from Business
and Professional Women's
Networking Groups
throughout the United States
will be joining with this mis-
sion for the first time and I
prevail upon women from our
own B and P group to join in
this most exciting adventure,"
she said.
Mrs. Levy cautioned those
who are strongly considering
participating in this mission
not to delay in making their
decision. "The UJA offices
have informed me that there
has been a tremendous
response to the mission, and
for that reason, I encourage all
those who are interested to get
their reservations in as quickly
as possible," she said.
Reservations are on a first
come, first served basis. Ap-
plications and deposits must be
received by May 15. For more

tion office, 832-2120.

Paga 4 The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County/Friday, April 17,1367
Why Jews Are Forbidden To Hate Egyptians
The stirring of activity in the
Arab-Israeli impasse are par-
ticularly welcome in this
season of rebirth and renewal.
For the dynamics of hope, as
well as the politics of peace,
preoccupy the minds of Jews
preparing to celebrate the
Passover, which began on
April 14 and commemorates
the deliverance from Egyptian
bondage some 3,300 years ago.
And while mixed signals
emerge from Cairo, we may
well ponder the complex and
ambivalent relationship that
has existed between Israel and
Egypt since the very dawn of
Jewish history. This interac-
tion is noted in the commen-
tary of the "Feast of
Freedom" the new 144-page
Haggadah published by the
Rabbinical Assembly, the in-
ternational organization of
Conservative rabbis.
SINCE FAMINE first im-
pelled the patriarch Abraham
to journey to the land of the
Nile, Egypt has played a pro-
minent and sometimes domi-
nant role in the lives of
Abraham's children. In seek-
ing cultural and commercial in-
terchange, Israel's govern-
ment is following a long stan-
ding royal precedent. For
Solomon married an Egyptian
princess and made a trade
treaty with her father. The
Book of Kings chronicles the
results, often catastrophic, of
Egypt's intermittent interven-
tion in the affairs of the
Kingdoms of Judah and Israel.
The ancestors of President
Hosni Mubarak were
characterized by the Prophets
as weak reeds not to be relied
on. Nevertheless, for over
three thousand years Jews
have been conditioned to
cultivate a pro-Egyptian at-
titude rooted not in history's
harsh reality but in the Bible's
clearly articulated morality.
On the face of it, the ancient
Hebrews has every reason to
loathe the ancient Egyptians.
It was a Hebrew, Joseph, who
had formulated the far-sighted
food conservation program
that saved the entire popula-
tion from starvation. And it
was at the specific invitation of
a reigning pharaoh that
Joseph s brothers had come to
stay in Goshen.
The new immigrants, min-
ding their sheep and their own
business, were devoted
patriots (the rabbis tell us) who
saved their newly adopted
homeland from defeat in a
series of major battles. We will
never know why they were
singled out for destruction.
ALL WE KNOW is that
when Joseph died, the record
of his good works died with
him. A new king arose who
"knew not Joseph." Gradual-
ly, systematically, he deprived
the "resident aliens" of their
civil rights, instituting a pro-
gram of mass enslavement and
child murder that constituted
calculated genocide. In terms
of art and architecture, the an-
cient Egyptians were highly
advanced. In terms of human
values, they were sadly defi-
cient. Rabbinic writings
describe the wanton brutalities
of the overseers, the
psychological and physical
maltreatment of the hapless
slaves. And the historian
Josephus notes that it was in
Egypt that we first encounted
organized anti-Semitism.
Yet Jews are categorically
commanded not to respond
with hatred. Local customs,
idolatrous and immoral, are
not to be adopted; the prac-
tices are to be regarded with
antipathy but the practi-
tioners. The Torah tells us.
"You shall not abhor the
Egyptians" (Deuteronomy
23:8). And it is surely one of
the most positive negative
commandments ever written

into a moral code.
The Exodus from Egyptian
servitude was the cataclysmic
event that gave birth to the
Jewish nation, a nation wedd-
ed inextricably to the concept
of one God, invisible, indivisi-
ble, universal, the God who is
'the Redeemer of the oppress-
ed, the Liberator of the enslav-
ed, the Defender of the weak
against the strong." The
memory of the Exodus is im-
printed on our national con-
sciousness, threaded through
our liturgy, recalled on every
Sabbath, linked to every
festival. It is mentioned every
day, in the blessing recited
after meals.
IN FACT, it is more than a
memory. The Haggadah, the
text that is the blueprint for
the Seder, the liturgical feast
at the heart of the Passover
celebration, requires us to
relive the poignant details, to
taste the bitter herbs of bon-
dage, to partake of the
unleavened 'bread of
We are bidden to keep the
Exodus experience fresh
because it is pregnant with
promise, the promise of
ultimate redemption that has
sustained Jews through the
seemingly interminable cycles
of oppression and liberation,
danger and deliverance. We
are enjoined to remember past
persecutions for the most con-
structive of purposes in
order that we may always ally
ourselves with all who are
Repeatedly, the Bible makes
this point. "You shall not op-
press a stranger, for you know
how it feels to be a stranger,
seeing that you yourselves
were strangers in the land of
Egypt" (Exodus 23:9). Precept
after precept is coupled with
the pointed reminder that we
who had endured such misery
in Mitzrayim must be sen-
sitive to the pain of others,
that we who had endured in-
justice must deal justly (and
generously) with our fellows.
The Exodus set us free
forever. Yet Jews remain the
willing "prisoners of hope." In
defiance of the problematic
present, we continue to dream
of (and to pray for) the great
day of reconciliation, envision-
ed by one of the world's great
dreamers, when Israel and
Egypt will live in true accord
and amity, "a blessing in the
midst of the earth" (Isaiah

What ItTakes

It takes years.
It took nearly 60 years to
build trust in a name. It took
leadership who helped set the
standards for Jewish funeral service
decades ago. Throughout the
years leaders such as Charles
Rosenthal and Carl Grossberg
exemplified their belief that Jewish
funeral service is not merely a
business, but a solemn trust held
by funeral directors on behalf
of the families they serve.
Today the
Riverside tradi-
tion continues
under the
leadership of Kenneth J. Lassman
and a new generation of caring
managers. And today the name
Riverside, nurtured through six
decades, remains the most
respected name in Jewish funeral
service in the world.

Attorney Sues To Force Elite Beach
Club To Reveal Member And
Guest List Restrictions
Prominent local attorney
Robert M. Montgomery, Jr., of
Montgomery, Searcy and Den-
ney, PA, filed a complaint
April 10 against the Beach
Club of Palm Beach, a
private membership club, to
force the club to define what
he says are "ambiguous and
potentially discriminatory"
membership and guest prac-
tices. The complaint seeks no
monetary consideration but
asks the Circuit Court to re-
quire the club to define its
rules in writing.
"When I was invited to join
the Beach Club in 1979, there
were Jewish members," said
Montgomery, "but recently,
signs have been posted that
warn members agains bring-
ing a guest 'who such
member might reasonably
believe would not be accep-
table as a member.' I'm con-
cerned about what this means,
and I haven't been able to get a
straight answer."
According to Montgomery,
his written and verbal requests
for explanation of the sign
and the Club's full policy on
membership, have been
denied. Although he is a
stockholder in addition to be-
ing a member, Montgomery in-
dicated that the Club also
refused his repeated requests
for minutes of a recent cor-
porate Board meeting.
"Unfortunately, private
clubs are still somewhat
beyond the reach of civil rights
legislation," Montogomery
said. "However, I've spent by
whole life defending the rights
of the individual."
"If any organization I'm
associated with has
discriminatory policies, I want
to know them," said Mon-
tgomery. "If I can't end the
discrimination, I can at least
resign and urge others to do
the same."
"It saddens me that such
practices might still exist on
the island of Palm Beach when
we've tried so hard to over-
come the prejudices of the
past," said Montgomery. "I
hope no discriminatory prac-
tices exist. This lawsuit is to
ascertain that no such prac-
tices exist; and if they do, I do
not want to be a member."
AIPAC To Examine U.S.-Israel
Partnership At Policy Conference
Chiles Says Time Ripe
For Modern-Day Exodus
Noting that conditions look
promising for the large-scale
emigration of Soviet Jews,
Senator Lawton Chiles, D-Fl.,
announced April 3 that he is
adding long-term refuseniks
Aba and Ida Taratuta to the
list of cases with which he is
personally involved.
"With the Kremlin hopefully
on the verge of relaxing its
strict emigration practices, the
key for all of us concerned
about Soviet Jewry is to not let
up on our efforts at this crucial
time," Chiles said.
Chiles said that he became
involved with the case of the
Taratuta family after their
situation was brought to his at-
tention by the family's many
relatives living in Florida and
by Soviet Jewry activists. He
said that the plight of the
Taratuta family is represen-
tative of the 11,000 long-term
refuseniks who have endured
great hardships for simply
wanting to be reunited with
their families and observant of
their religion.
"With the arrival of
Passover, Jewish families
across the free world will mark
the exodus of their ancestors
from Egyptian slavery to
freedom and pray that the rest
of the Jewish family in Russia
will be permitted to make its
exodus to freedom," Chiles
"This year's Passover
celebration may be the first
time in this decade that
prayer 'next year in
Jerusalem' will be fulfilled for
the large numbers of Soviet
Jews seeking to emigrate,"
Chiles said. "The time w ripe
for a modern-day exodus."
Chiles pointed to two recent
developments which may
signify a relaxation of the
Soviet Union'8 tight grip on
Jewish emigration. First,
Chiles noted, 470 Jews were
allowed to emigrate in March.

cording to the Co-Chairmen,

the citrus industry which were
started in this manner. The
operation of most of these
businesses, according to Mr.
Levy, has been under the
direction of the Chairman of
the Executive who is responsi-
ble for running the Jewish
Agency on a day to day basis.
"The feeling was that the
Chairman of the Executive,
with his man v other duties and
activities, really is not able to
effectively administrate all
these businesses. The Board of
Governors has concluded that,
notwithstanding the original
propriety of starting those
businesses and the need for
them, there may no ionger be a
real reason for the Jewish
Agency to continue to own
and/or manage them," stated
Mr. Levy.
Mr. Levy will not have an
easy time trying to sort out all
the complexities involved.
"The ownership is very com-
plicated," he said. "In some in-
stances, we own all of the
business, sometimes we own
part of a business and
somebody else owns part of it,
sometimes we have control
and have no economic interest

"Since Israel is more
sophisticated today than it was
30 years ago, it is possible that
some of (the Jewish Agency's)
businesses could be sold to
Israelis and continue to be
operated by them," he said. He
also said that others could be
sold to the public.
Next month in London Mr.
Levy and his high powered
committee will begin the pro-
cess of going over the inven-
tory of all the businesses to
recommend a future course of
action to the Board of Gover-
nors. "Obviously, if we reduce
the debt, we have less interest
to pay and more money
available for that which is on
our agenda such as immigra-
tion, absorption, education,

not forgotten. When they
receive our packages, this will
be another message to them to
continue their hope that one
day they will be allowed to
emigrate. In addition, the
Soviet government will be
reminded once again that
there are people throughout
the world who will not rest un-
til they change their op-
pressive policy. They cannot
deny their Jewish citizens
human rights when the
spotlight continues to shine on
In order to maximize the
chance for the matzoh
packages to get through
Soviet censorship and reach
their destinations, the ad-
dresses and customs declara-
tions have been written in Rus-
sian by George and Irene
Spivak. In addition, since mat-
zohs are strictly forbidden to
be sent to the Soviet Union as
it is considered a religious
item, the customs declaration
is marked "crackers" in the
hope to get past the censors.
According to the Co-
Chairmen, those refuseniks
who were chosen to receive the
matzohs live in various areas
of the country. "By sending
the packages to people in cities
in addition to Moscow and
Leningrad, we anticipate a
greater chance of the matzohs
getting through," Rabbi
Levine said.
Other criteria for selection
included having been a
refusenik for ten years or
more, large families with
children, or singles with no one
else to support them.
Rabbi Levine commended
those who participated in this
Passover Appeal. "As a result
of their sponsorship, we will be
one step further in
highlighting the plight of our
fellow Jews trapped behind the
Iron Curtain. Next year we
plan to conduc* *his appeal on

crease participation," he said.

Passover Seders Celebrate Exodus,
Also Mark Exodus Of Chaplain Aide Volunteers
: Jeanne Rabbi Alan Sher-
man and you have com-
pleted arrangements for
Passover Seders at institu-
tions for the elderly. What's
next on the Chaplain Aide
: Yes. Chaplain Aides will
conduct Passover Seders at
26 nursing homes and two
retirement centers. Next, is
our Annual Recognition
Luncheon at the Morse
Geriatric Center on May 5.
But, uppermost in my mind
right now is the summer
doldrums for nursing home
: Please explain.
L:Even as the Seder
celebrates The Exodus from
Egypt, we are faced with
the unhappy fact that this
season marks the exodus
from Palm Beach of many
volunteer Chaplain Aides.
: How many leave?
: About 50 percent. Some go
for the entire summer;
others come and go for a
week or a month at a time.
: Most of us can escape the
summer heat for some time,
at least. How about nursing
home residents?
: They are virtually tied to
their residences and their
numbers remain the same
throughout the year.
: With fewer Chaplain Aides,
how do you manage?
: Unless we can get summer
replacements, we will have
to curtail our service to the
homes. For instance, where
we now go once a week for
Friday Shabbat services, we
may go every other week or
in some cases, once a
Claire and Aaron Kazinec of
Wellington, announce the
of their son, Andrew
cott, 8 lbs. 7 oz. on April 4 at
rood Samaritan Hospital.
randparents are Manuel and
Ilinore Kazinec of Singer
Island and Raymond and
..ydia Wilson of Cleveland.
Claire is a member of the
foung Adult Division Board
id sits on the Leadership
evelopment Committee of
ie Jewish Federation of Palm
Jeach County.
Q: That's too bad. The
residents look forward to
the Sabbath service, don't
A: Yes, they do. They enjoy
sacramental wine, Sabbath
Challah and the lighting of
the Sabbath candles. The
accompanying prayers, as
well as songs, create a
Jewish atmosphere that is
great for the morale of the
elderly. Just as important,
is the stimulation they
receive through interaction
with persons from the out-
side. One-on-one relation-
ships between Chaplain
Aides and residents of nurs-
ing homes improve the
quality of life for both.
Q:Well, what's the bottom
line? How can the situation
be improved?
A: By an all out effort to
recruit people of all ages
who spend all or part of
their time in the Palm
Beaches during the summer
Q: You've been a founder of
the Chaplain Aide Program
and have watched it grow
four-fold in the seven years
of its existance. What
motivates people to become
chaplain aides?
A: It's hard to say why any
particular person joins our
group. I'm sure some con-
sider the mitzvah involved.
What better way to observe
the fifth commandment
than honoring the mothers
and fathers of people we
don't even know? This gives
the Chaplain Aides a
tremendous sense of fulfill-
ment. In fact their favorite
expression is, "I get more
than I give."
Q: Why do you think more
people don't come forward
to do this rewarding work?
A: Some don't understand
what we do. Others think
they can't handle it. But
when they try it, they find it
so satisfying they stay on
for years.
Q: What is the Chaplain Aide
A: We rarely lose a volunteer
other than through some
misfortune or they move
from the Palm Beach area.
Q: You've probably had some
interesting experiences at
the nursing homes. Can you
recall any?
A: I remember one in par-

Jeanne Glasser
ticular a lady resident
who was a regular attendee
at our Sabbath Service in a
nursing home. She lit the
Sabbath Candles every Fri-
day for years, until she suf-
fered a stroke which left her
unable to speak. She chose
to remain in her room and
did not use her voice for
communication. After some
months she agreed to at-
tend the Friday Services
again. She was wheeled to
the Sabbath candles and to
the amazement of all, she
proceeded to recite the
benediction in a loud clear
voice, as in the past.
Q: I guess there are many such
A: The other day, I was told by
a Chaplain Aide of a
90-year-old man who hadn't
been communicating with
anyone; no inter-personal
relationships, no participa-
tion in social activities. One
Friday at the Sabbath Ser-
vice, there he was, singing
the hymns, reciting prayers.
He seemed to be enjoying
life again. That's the most
rewarding part of Chaplain
Aide work and that's the
reason volunteers stay on.
Q: How about the material
A: Of course, there's the An-
nual Recognition Luncheon
at which we distribute Cer-
tificates of Honor to the
Chaplain Aides for their
work at nursing homes,
retirement centers and
hospitals. This year, for-
tunately, Cantor Norman
Brbdy of Temple Beth El
has agreed to present a
musical program at the lun-
cheon. In addition, three or
four times a year we con-
duct seminar meetings with
guest speakers. This pro-
vides the Aides the oppor-
tunity to socialize with each
other and share their
Q: Sounds great! Does a
volunteer need any special
A: No. The most valuable
talent is the ability to relate
to another human being .
just being able to listen.

This is the highest monthly

Chiles said, is the Soviet's in-

Soviet Jewry and the Con-

"These developments stem
primarily from the Soviet
Union's desire to gain
favorable trade and arms con-
trol agreements with the
west," Chiles said. "We must
uphold our commitment,
reflected in laws such as the
Jackson-Vanik amendment,
that all agreements must be
linked to real progress in the
area of human rights."
Chiles recently wrote to

other Soviet officials re-

nounced that he is joining the

After reviewing a guard of
honor, Herzog was flown by
helicopter to Villa Ham-
merschmidt, the official
residence of President von
Weizsaecker. There, German
army units passed in review
and the national anthems of
Israel and West Germany
were played. The two
Presidents had a brief talk and
were then flown to Hannover,
capital of Lower Saxony, and
from there by helicopter to

where some thought no Presi-

thank Herzog for accepting
Bonn's invitation. "Of course I
understand those who voiced
criticism," he told reporters

rival. He said the visit by the
Israeli chief of state was "an
extraordinary event of an ex-

people the precept of life, the

would the Jew be a helpless
