Israeli Press, Colleagues React
To Appointment Of Envoy Arad
Moshe Arad, the career
foreign service officer
nominated to be Israel's next
Ambassador to the United
States, has been the subject of
less-than-charitable commen-
tary by the media which his
colleagues say is unfair. A car-
toonist in one major daily
depicted him as the pilot of a
tiny single-engine plane labell-
ed "Mexico"-about to take the
controls of a jumbo jet labeled
"U.S." Arad has just com-
pleted a tour of duty as Israel's
Ambassador in Mexico City.
The cartoon implied he is not
ready to take over Israel's
most important diplomatic
post abroad.
A Jerusalem Post editorial
said that with U.S.-Israel rela-
tions at an especially
"delicate" juncture, "nothing
less than the highest qualities
. .. would seem to be re-
quired" of an Ambassador to
Washington. The Post
acknowledged that Arad "is
certainly a capable diplomat"
but that "the Washington post
... calls for something more."
THE MEDIA reactions ap-
pear to have been influenced
by the fact that Arad's
nomination was a compromise
reached by Premier Yitzhak
Shamir and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres after months of
public wrangling over a suc-
cessor to Meir Rosenne.
Rosenne's four-year tour of
duty ended on May 31. He
declined to stay on, and
Shamir and Peres were forced
to agree quickly on a replace-
ment. Foreign service insiders
and observers consider the
media barbs unjustified. They
say Arad's selection, however
arrived at, was not a bad
choice and could turn out to be
a remarkably good one. Arad's
friends and colleagues hold
him in high regard for his in-
tellectual attributes and poise.
Shamir and Peres apparent-
ly were impressed by his pro-
fessionalism. Although he is
believed to be closer in his
views to Labor than Likud, he
is not politically active. Shamir
agreed to nominate Arad after
he vetoed a succession of other
non-political candidates pro-
posed by Peres.
AIDES SAID Shamir, who
has twice held the offices of
Premier and Foreign Minister,
values professionalism above
all. As Ambassador to Mexico
and in his earlier positions in
the foreign service, Arad

"solely for religious purposes"
to circumvent the separation
clause which bans organized
prayer in public schools.
The AJCongress brief was

Family Separation
Debilitates Many Young
Ethiopians In Israel
remarkable exodus of 15,000
Ethiopian Jews to Israel dur-
ing "Operation Moses" in 1985
has already occupied its page
in modern Jewish history. But
their story is not finished.
Many of them, particularly
the children and teenagers,
suffered pain and trauma. For
some, it never ceased.
Rabbi Nahum Cohen, direc-
tor of the Youth Aliya absorp-
tion center for Ethiopian
children at Hofim in northern
Israel and himself a 1966 im-
migrant to Israel from Scran-
ton, Pa., has witnessed the
plight of many of the Ethio-
pian children.
"Until the remaining Jews
of Ethiopia are brought to
Israel and are reunited with
their families, these Ethiopian
youngsters are going to be in
trauma." Cohen told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
recently while visiting here on
a speaking tour sponsored by
the United Jewish Appeal.
"As long as these children
and youngsters are separated
from their relatives and
friends, who remained back in
Ethiopia, their ability to func-
tion in society will be handicap-
ped. They simply cannot study
or work, Cohen asserted.
Official Israeli sources
estimate that 12,000-14,000
Jews still live in Ethiopia. Ac-
cording to American and
Israeli officials, the prospects
are dim that they will be allow-
ed to leave for Israel in the
near future.
Cohen said the absorption
center of Hofim has been serv-
ing as "a revolving door" for
Ethiopian youth, who after
completing various study and
training programs are sent to
other Youth Aliya centers in
According to Cohen, Hofim
houses 211 Ethiopians ages six
to 20, most of whom suffered
tragedy. "The average child at
Hofim lost more than four
relatives in the course of the
journey to Israel," Cohen
disclosed. "We have in Israel
45 Ethiopian children who are
orphans. Many, many others
have lost one of the parents or
a sister or brother and other
Cohen stressed that many of
the Ethiopian children are still
suffering from the trauma of
their 10-month odyssey to
Israel through the Sudan.
"During that journey they
were jailed, beaten, robbed
and raped," Cohen said.
He noted that the combina-
tion of the journey with the
shock of separation from fami-
ly members has caused many
of the Ethiopian youngsters
emotional problems they are
yet to overcome. "The kids
who were separated from their
families are still going to sleep
crying every night," Cohen
In addition to the emotional
problems, Cohen said many of
the young immigrants re-
quired treatment for various il-
lnesses such as malaria,
typhoid fever and stomach
parasites. Many suffered from
malnutrition as a result of the
Ethiopian famine. "Altogether
we had to hospitalize in Israel
106 Ethiopian children since
their arrival," Cohen
But despite all the hard-
ships, none of Israel's Ethio-
pian Jews want to return to

Inaugural Parlor Meeting Gets The Ball Rolling
Gilbert Messing, Chairman of the Jewish Community Campus
Capital Campaign, addressed community members about the
need for a Jewish Community Campus at an inaugural parlor
meeting held recently at the home of Barry and Marjorie Berg
in West Palm Beach.
After learning about the proposed JCCampus, 18 people at
the parlor meeting pledged their support for the project.
Eighteen members of the
Jewish community recently
gathered at the home of Barry
and Marjorie Berg in West
Palm Beach to pledge their
support to making the Jewish
Community Center Capital
Campaign a success. Their ac-
tion was in response to the
message delivered by Gilbert
Messing. Chairman of the fund
raising drive, at this inaugural
parlor meeting.
Mr. Messing spoke of the
need for a central Jewish ad-
dress for the activities of all
generations. He said, "Our
area is one of the fastest grow-
ing Jewish communities in the
country. It is imperative that
we take action now to insure
that our children, and all
generations to come, will have
a proper facility where they
can participate in social.
educational, cultural, and
physical activities linking them
to their heritage.
"In addition, our vision of
this community's future en-
compasses a place where
families, young adults, and
senior citizens will be able to
join in programs and activities
on one campus which will
house the Jewish Community
Center, the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County, and the
Jewish Family and Children's
Service. With your help, and
the support of everyone in the
Jewish community, we will
have a place for us."
Of those attending this in-
itial get-together, five couples
offered to open their homes for
additional parlor meetings
where they will reach out to
their friends and neighbors.
OUiers volunteered to per-
sonally ask their friends to
participate with them in the
$12 million campaign.
The proposed JCCampus
will be located on a site at
Military Trail and 12th Street
in West Palm Beach.

What Kind Of Allies
Eleven Kuwaiti oil tankers are to be flying
the American flag soon as they ply the
waters of the Iraq-Iran war zone. If Iran is
not deterred by the Stars and Stripes and
it was not when its "students" seized the
Tehran Embassy, when its surrogates blew
up the Beirut Marine barracks or its
devotees took hostages in Lebanon and it
threatens one of these re-flagged tankers,
U.S. Navy vessels presumably will steam to
the rescue.
But they apparently will do so without
American air cover, making them as
vulnerable as the USS Stark. The Gulf is too
small for aircraft carriers to operate in and
maintain acceptable safety margins. So for
the last decade Washington has tried, inter-
mittently, to win the right to base American
fighter planes and other forces in littoral
countries. Those who have refused include
Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
Now, by bringing the Soviets in to re-flag
three tankers, the Kuwaitis smoothly avail-
ed themselves of U.S. protection as well,
giving nothing in return. Next door, Saudi
Arabia has received tens of billions of dollars
worth of sophisticated U.S. weaponry in the
past ten years to help "stabilize the region.
But the Saudis failed to force down the Iraqi
plane which fired on the Stark. Facilities the
United States operated at Dhahran, starting
in World War II, have been off-limits as an
American base for 25 years. In general,
Saudi Arabia does little to help us patrol the
Kuwait and Saudi Arabia make curious
U.S. allies. While the former looks to the
American flag and American GI's for
protection, its news media continue virulent-
ly to attack this country, most recently ac-
cusing President Reagan of being responsi-
ble for the attack on the Stark because he
"participated directly and indirectly in
fomenting, escalating and continuing the
(Iraq-Iran) war."
Saudi Arabia remains the most unreliable
link in Washington's chain of "moderate"
Arab states funding the PLO, refusing to
assist Egypt to reenter inter-Arab politics,
and warning Jordan against direct peace
talks with Israel. The American response?
More arms sales, including the current pro-
posal to sell another dozen F-15 fighters
worth half-a-billion dollars.
Former U.S. Navy Secretary John
Lehman recently estimated that the Central
Command which grew out of the Rapid
Deployment Force to protect U.S. in-
terests in the Gulf costs American taxpayers
approximately $40 billion annually. Yet to
be credible, it needs land bases. However, of
the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council
(GCC) Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman,
Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab
Emirates only Oman allows the United
States to use its bases.
Yes, GCC countries face danger from
Iran. Yes, the United States has strong na-
tional security interests in the region. But it
is Japan and the nations of Western Europe,
with good-sized navies of their own not
the United States which depend on Gulf
oil. And no, the Saudis and Kuwaitis do not
behave like American allies. Uncle Sam mav
be about to become a Persian Gulf patsy
for friends, foes and frauds alike.

Fair Economic Winds
After two years of stabilization, the
Israeli economy may have entered a period
of growth, according to recent reports from
Jerusalem. During 1986 Israel's gross
domestic product rose by 2 percent with the
private sector showing a 4 percent increase.
These figures surprised the Central Bureau
of Statistics which admitted that it had
underestimated last year's growth.
Other good economic news included:
The cost-of-living index registered a 2.2
percent per month rise in April but the
economic ministries expect that inflation
figures will be lower in coming months;
The standard of living increased by 12
percent last year and continued to rise at the
same pace during the first quarter of 1987;
Unemployment declined from a high of
7.9 percent in mid-1986 to 5.7 percent dur-
ing the first three months of 1987;
A January devaluation of the shekel
stimulated an increase in exports
although imports exceeded exports by $1
billion during the first four months of 1987;
Israel's foreign currency reserves have
hit an unprecedented high and may reach $6
billion by the end of the year;
A U.S. government source said that the
past nine months have seen a rise in the pur-
chase of investment goods.
Nevertheless, analysts maintain that while
economic activity may have returned to
"normal" levels, many structural problems
must be overcome before large-scale
economic growth can ensue.
Martin Ingall, a Boston-based economic
analyst, explained that while these statistics
may not reflect a structural change in the
way Israelis do business, they may show
that "the business sector is approaching
critical mass the point at which it is large
enough to interact with itself and with
foreign concerns. It may not be large
enough to change the Israeli system quite
yet, but it may be big enough to develop a
new constituency for capitalism within
Since January, the Israeli government has
engaged in a revolutionary effort to roll
back its legacy of "quasi-socialist" involve-
ment in the business sector and to stimulate
private investment, according to Ingall. The
government deregulated the capital market,
sold some government-owned businesses
and lowered taxes.
The most painful aspect of economic
reform has been a reduction in the govern-
ment's budget. While this has resulted in the
elimination of some waste, it has also cut in-
to such vital areas as education and defense.
Ingall said that the Israelis' willingness to
make these sacrifices for stability and
growth has enabled the country to emerge
from the economic abyss, unlike Brazil and
Argentina which have also instituted
reforms in the past two years. In addition he
credits long-term faith in the government
and emergency U.S. economic aid for help-
ing the turnaround.
U.S. officials had hoped that the Israeli
government would introduce a balanced
budget in 1987 and they continue to
courage reduced expenditures.
Israeli officials and Western economists
are advising all sectors not to be carried
away by the positive developments. In a re-
cent speech to the Knesset, Finance
Minister Moshe Nissim called upon manufac-
turers and labor unions to resist the desire
to take advantage of growth and low infla-
tion by raising wages and prices.
Economists maintain that any event which
might threaten public confidence in the
government or the economy such as an
early election could trigger renewed

the world's most renowned
scientists, laments the fact the
Jews are not as prominent in
the world of science today as
they were a generation ago.
"Jews used to be the best
scholars and scientists. But
the young Jews of this genera-
tion go to Wall Street. They
make money. Now the best
scholars are the Orientals,"
the 89-year-old Rabi said in an
interview in New York.
But, he noted, Jews are still
contributing to the world of
science. "Ail I can say is that I
am pleased."
RABI, who was awarded the
Nobel Prize in physics in 1944
for his work on magnetic pro-
perties of atomic nuclei, was
asked to rank Israel's position
in the world of science today.
"Israel is a modern scientific
state. It is not a world leader,
but it plays a significant role in
the world of science. It is not
like France, the United States
or West Germany, but it can
certainly be compaed to
Austria, for instance, or be
placed above Norway or
Poland when it comes to
science," Rabi observed.
Rabi was born on July 29,
1898, in Rymanow, Galicia,
which was then part of
Austria-Hungary, to an Or-
thodox Jewish family. He im-
migrated to the United States
with his family at the age of 2,
and has ever since been living
in New York.
He has had a 63-year associa-
tion with Columbia University,
which in 1985 accorded him
the rare honor of creating a
professorial chair in his name.
In 1967 he was named Pro-
fessor Emeritus by the
STILL VERY much active
and alert today, he remains a
familiar figure on Columbia's
campus, where he meets with
students, attends seminars
and works in his office almost
daily. He is also a member of
Israel's Bar-Ilan University's
Science Advisory Committee.
Sitting in the living room of
his Riverside Drive apartment
overlooking the Hudson River,
Rabi reflected on the role of
science in modern times.
"Science is the most important
subject in the modern human
world," he said. "Science
gives you power over nature,
but this power implies ethical
responsibility. Therefore,
ethics must also come out of
Does the linkage between
science and ethics mean that
science can be misused?
Rabi replied in the affir-
mative. "Science can be misus-
ed when it is used to kill peo-
ple," he said, "or when the
science of psychology, to give
another example, is used to
manipulate people."

times there are just wars, such
as the war against Nazi Ger-
many, or Israel's wars against
its enemies.

"I was not against the mak-
ing of the atom bomb during
the war. We were in an
emergency then, trying to
save civilization. But a just
cause is hard to define ... You
have to use it (science) in self-
defense. It is a just war to
fight somebody like Hitler or
the Ayatollah Khomeini," Rabi
said, referring to Iran's
fanatical leader.
On the subject of science and
religion, Rabi said: "If you
mean a religion which is found
in the supernatural, it is very
difficult for a scientist to
follow, although some of the
scientists I know are devout
Jews and Christians. I am a
religious person in a sense that
I am a Jew. I am glad I am a

Comfortable Union in Their Traditions
This frisbee-shape head covering

I remember it quite well. It
was when I was 19 years old
and in corporal's course train-
ing in the Israeli army that I
made the conscious decision to
become a practicing Jew. As I
have learned since, the social
aspect of that decision had lit-
tle to do with putting on
tefillin, observing the Sabbath
and Halacha. Instead, the
significant element in becom-
ing observant was wearing a
knitted kippa from then on.
I have learned and observed
since, that this piece of knitted
cloth has become the focus of
much attention and especially
projections among persons I
encounter on a daily basis.
This frisbee-shaped head
covering seems to attract
some and deter others from
encouraging me based on my
personal merits and faults.

In the United States, I have
often tried to obtain support
for my school, Pelech. It seems
that in encounters with non-
Orthodox Jews, I have to
spend half my time dispelling
images of Kahanism, non-
Zionism intransigence, and in-
tolerance simply because I
wear a Kippa. The reality is
that Pelech is a progressive
religious school advocating
tolerance, Zionism and cohe-
sion within the Jewish com-
munity. Yet, I am constantly
on the defensive.
In interfaith encounters, I
am endowed with the scholarly
knowledge of great rabbis,
with characteristics of a saint
or guru. Why? Because I wear
a kippa.
DOES IT have its benefits?
Most assuredly so. My fellow
Jews and non-Jews as well
ascribe to me the quality of
strict religious practice. They
credit me with a more spiritual
existence and affinity to the
Creator. Literally on a daily
basis, I hear some joke about
my interceding with God for

ADL: Membership, Extremist
Groups' Influence Decline
Marilyn LeRoy serves Falafel to guests.
influence of American far-
right extremist hate groups
such as the Ku Klux Klan
(KKK), The Order and Aryan
Nations has declined markedly
and membership has reached
the lowest point in 10 years,
according to a report issued
Thursday by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. According to the
report, the decline of the hate
groups is an outcome of a
massive and sweeping federal
crackdown against their
criminal activities.
The report, "The Hate
Movement in America: A
Chronicle of Violence and
Disarray," revealed that KKK
membership now stands at ap-
proximately 5,000 down
nearly 20 percent from its
estimated total of more than
6,000 in 1984 and about half of
what it was in 1981. The ranks
of neo-Nazis in America have
also shown a 10 to 20 percent
decline since 1984 to between
400 and 450.
The ADL, which has
monitored Klan and hate
group activity for decades,
also reported that violence-
prone, anti-Semitic and racist
groups such as The Order and
Aryan Nations have been
seriously weakened with many
of their leaders in prison or
awaiting trial for criminal
The report was released at
the ADL's annual National
Commission meeting at the
Grand Hyatt Hotel here.
Criminal prosecutions of the
organized hate movement in
America have been triggered
by a wave of extremist
criminal violence in the past
three years, which according
to ADL chairman Burton
Levinson has exceeded the
amount perpetrated over the
past 20 years. These included:
Convictions and imprison-
ment of key members of The
Order, Aryan Nations, as well
as the Covenant, the Sword
and the Arm of the Lord,
which are members of the so-
called "Identity" movement
that claims Anglo-Saxons are
the "true Israel" and Jews are
"of the devil." Their leaders
have been prosecuted for
crimes, including several
murders, the bombings of two
synagogues, the attempted
bombing of a natural gas
pipeline and numerous armed
Indictments and pending
trials of 10-hate-movement
leaders charged with plotting
to overthrow the U.S.

prone Identity groups in

charges that include con-
spiracy to commit armed rob-
bery and issuance of death

Convictions of leaders and
other members of the White
Patriot Party, a hybrid Klan
and neo-Nazi group centered
in North Carolina also in
connection with proscribed
paramilitary training and for
conspiracy to acquire military
weapons stolen from the U.S.
Army. The group has recently
changed its name to the
Southern National Front.
In addition, there was $7
million damages award against
one of the largest Klan fac-
tions in this country, the
United Klans of America,
resulting from a civil lawsuit
brought on behalf of the family
of a black teenager murdered
by members of the organiza-
tion in Alabama in 1981. As a
result, recruitment has come
to a halt.
The report, which was
prepared by ADL's Fact Fin-
ding Department under the
direction of Justin Finger,
director of the agency's Civil
Rights Division, said the ex-
tremists' criminal activity has
stemmed in part from their
sense of desperation over their
failure to grow through pro-
paganda techniques. The ex-
tremists' violence, in turn, has
led to even greater isolation.
The report said the hate
groups have tried in recent
months to use racial tensions,
such as those in Forsyth Coun-
ty, Ga., and Howard Beach,
N.Y., as rallying points to
unite and energize their
beleaguered forces. But these
events "have provided only
brief periods of enthusiasm for
activists rather than any
lasting build-up in the ranks of
the Klan and neo-Nazi
groups," the report said.
In describing the current
status of the U.S. neo-Nazi
movement, the report said a
major segment of it has ex-
perienced difficulties during
the past two years. Two
"heirs" of George Lincoln
Rockwell, founder of the
American Nazi Party, have
changed the names of their
organizations and moved their
headquarters recently from
Arlington, Va., to rural areas
in West Virginia and

An Important Part Of Care At Morse Geriatric Center

"We're interested in serving

Thomas A. (Tom) Gaddis,
Food Service Director for the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric
Center since March, 1987, has
very strong feelings about all
that is involved in serving the
120 residents living in the
"I have told my staff," he
says, "You work for the
residents. This is their home.
If you satisfy them, then you
satisfy me.' "
Such a goal presents a
challenge to the dietary
department, especially when
one considers roughly 15 per-
cent of the residents are on
diabetic diets, another 11 per-
cent are on weight reduction
diets, and most have salt-
restricted diets. In addition,

Mr. Gaddis received training
in kashrut at the Jewish Home
for the Aged in Riverdale,
New York. "They have a
museum which explains the
history and reason for each
tradition involved in kosher
cooking," he says. "I've found
you can get someone to assist
you in the preparation of
kosher food as long as you
have a desire to properly serve
such food and a respect for
Jewish tradition. And I have a

The professional help provid-
ed by Gertrude (Gitel) Cross,

tor, is invaluable, Mr. Gaddis
"Gitel has a list of creden-
tials a half-block long and
knows kosher food preparation
on a first-hand basis. She has
lived the tradition all of her
life," he comments.
Mr. Gaddis repeatedly ex-
presses his appreciation for
the help and direction he
receives from Rabbi Joseph
Speiser, spiritual leader of
Golden Lakes Temple in West
Palm Beach. Rabbi Speiser is a
representative of the Palm

Speiser oversees the separa-
tion of all meat and dairy pro-
ducts their storage, the uten-
sils with which they are
prepared, the kitchenware in
which they are cooked, and the
dishes upon which they are
served. This separation is
achieved by maintaining two
kitchens, which includes
duplicated storage, refri-
gerators, freezers, stoves and
Rabbi Speiser also makes
sure that all products purchas-
ed fulfill requirements of
kashrut law.
A month after Mr. Gaddis
arrived at the Center he was
obligated to go through the
rigorous practice of kashering
the two kitchens for Passover.
Under the direction of Rabbi
Speiser, the kitchens were
cleaned .. and then steamed.
Following that, a torch was us-
ed to burn all kitchen surfaces
where pre-Passover food
residue may have remained.
Everything used before
Passover had to be placed in
sealed storage before anything
to be used during Passover
could be brought in.
"Further, we have four sets
of kitchen and dining ware for
food preparation and service,"
Mr. Gaddis explains. "Two
sets are maintained during
most of the year, and two addi-
tional sets are reserved for use
during Passover."
Mr. Gaddis remarks that,
"By observing kashrut, a

the next greatest challenge.
For achieving this bit of kit-

high praise for First Cook, Gus
"Gus is more than a cook, he
is a CHEF!" he says. He can
start with a recipe and convert
it to accommodate sugar-free,
salt-free and reduction diets.
Mr. Gaddis comments that Mr.
Kastanias also has a talent for
making food presentation ap-
pealing, even in the light of
such restrictions.

Shlomo was a celebrity when
he arrived in Israel nine years
ago. He was eight years old
and had escaped from Syria by
walking across the mountains
to Turkey. Everyone first at
the Netanya absorption
center, and then in Jerusalem
where he settled with his
parents seven brothers and
sisters wanted to hear his
But when the stories were
told, Shlomo no longer drew
audiences. Not even his
parents, struggling to build a
new life, had time to listen to
him. He fell behind at school,
skipped class and fell fur-
ther behind. His anger against
home and school mounted. By
the time he was 14, he was
rarely anywhere but on the
street, at the fringe of a gang
of older boys.
It's at this point that
Shlomo's story takes a dif-
ferent turn from that of an
estimated 15,000 to 20,000
Israeli teenagers, currently
heading down the road to
delinquency. He was befriend-
ed by a streetworker, who
brought him to the
Preparatory Center for Youth
Studies usually called the
Interim Station in
downtown Jerusalem.
"The Station's aim is to help
Shlomo and youngsters like
him to cope, both educationally
and socially to reach a level
where they can fit into socie-
ty," says Lisa Kaufman, coor-
dinator of Youth and
Technology Projects for the
American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee-
"It doesn't teach him a trade
or award him a diploma. There
are other places to do that.
What the Station does do is
make him believe in himself
and fit in: arrive on time, dress
tidily, and be part of a group,
without disrupting activities or
wrecking the surroundings."
"Shlomo was 16 when he
came to us," says Rami
Sulimani, the Station's direc-
tor. "He was big, tough and
angry. But protected inside a
very surly exterior was a hurt

Close to a million ballots were
mailed to members of
American Zionist organiza-
tions to elect delegates to the
31st World Zionist Congress
which will open in Jerusalem
on December 7, it was an-
nounced here by the American
Zionist Federation (AZF), the
umbrella group for all the
Zionist membership organiza-
tions in the United States.
Eligible voters will choose
from nine slates representing
a broad spectrum of views on
issues of concern to the Jewish
Benjamin Cohen, AZF presi-
dent, and Raymond Patt, Area
Election Committee chairper-
son, said recipients of the
ballots have until June 30 to
return them. While the AZF is
the coordinating body for the
election, voters have been in-
structed to mail their ballots
directly to the American Ar-
bitration Association (AAA)
which is overseeing the elec-
tion. Any member of the 16
AZF constituent organizations
who has not received a ballot
by May 30 should contact the
AAA at (212) 484-3220, Cohen
and Patt said.
According to the two of-
ficials, if a person is a member
of more than one Zionist
organization, that person may
receive more than one ballot.
But, Cohen and Patt emphasiz-
ed, "You may vote only once.
If you return more than one
ballot, your vote will not be
Patt called the balloting "a
remarkable democratic exer-
cise which allows members in
the U.S. Zionist organizations
to select their representatives
to the World Zionist Con-
gress." He predicted that the
response would exceed the
more than 200,000 ballots cast
in 1978, the last time elections
took place for the Zionist
"This is certainly the 'Year
of the Zionist,' Patt said. "We
witnessed a dramatic increase
in Zionist membership; we ex-
perienced a highly successful
American Zionist Assembly in
Philadelphia last January whih
was attended by some 1,600
people. And we are extremely
encouraged by a renewed in-
terest in Zionism, particularly
by young Jews."
Cohen said that "a strong
showing in this election will
serve as a reaffirmation of
basic Zionist principles and
also reinforce the Jerusalem
Program adopted at the 27th
Zionist Congress in 1968."
The Jerusalem program af-
firms that the aims of Zionism
are: "The unity of the Jewish
people and the centrality of
Israel in Jewish life; The in-
gathering of the Jewish people
in its historic homeland Eretz
Yisrael, through aliya from all
countries; The strengthening
of the State of Israel, which is
based on the prophetic vision
of justice and peace; The
preservation of the identity of
the Jewish people though the
fostering of Jewish and
Hebrew education and of
Jewish spiritual and cultural
values; The protection of
Jewish rights everywhere."
There are nine slates, in the
following order drawn by lot:
SLATE 1 Mercaz -
Strengthening Israel's Conser-
vative/Masorti Judaism
SLATE 2 Hadassah Bnai
Zion American Jewish
League Young Judea
SLATE 3 Zionist Organiza

SLATE 7 The Progressive
Zionist List Americans for

SLATE 8 Religious Zionist
Movement Amit Emunah
SLATE 9 Friends of Labor:
Na'amat. LZA, Habonim
Although all of the organiza-
tions are united on the basic
Zionist agenda, such as the
security of the State of Israel
and aliya, they differ on such
issues as pluralism in Israel,
the future of territories cap-
tured by Israel in 1967, and the
process for achieving many of
Zionism's goals, Cohen and
Patt said.

Hebrew is spoken by all at
Hofim, Cohen said, pointing
out that after three months in
the absorption center, "they
know enough to be in-
tegrated." However, some of
the Ethiopian kids still speak
their mother-tongue, Amharic,
Cohen noted.
According to Cohen, there
are 2,495 Ethiopian children

integrated with Jewish youth
from other countries. They are
mostly well adjusted and rare-

claimed. He said that the
Ethiopian Jews, who live in
about 68 different locations in
Israel, can generally be con-
sidered as a success story.

Galactic Mezuzah Now Earth- president of the sy"aKoKue ^^i^^^^-
Bound At Jewish Museum
mezuzah that has orbited the
earth 109 times came to rest
last month at the Jewish
Museum here. Astronaut Dr.
Jeffrey Hoffman, who took the
mezuzah into space two years
ago on the shuttle Discovery,
made the presentation of the
unearthly mezuzah to the
Jewish Museum.
Hoffman, an identifying Jew
and active member of a
synagogue in Houston, Texas,
said he "wanted to make this
special," referring to the tradi-
tion of taking personal posses-
sions into space to be brought
back as unusual mementos.
Other astronauts have
brought with them flags,
school banners and rings, all
manner of souvenirs that
become touched with a sense
of infinity as they pass through
the earth's stratosphere and
circle the heavens.
"I did something else," said
Hoffman, as he presented the
handsome mezuzah to the
museum. "Being a Jew and
making my first trip into
space," Hoffman said he was
aware of the Jewish history of
traveling, of moving from
place to place, he even joked
about one day establishing a
synagogue in space.
"As we go into space, we
carry our civilization and
culture with us. Being a Jew is
part of that," Hoffman said as
he handed over the mezuzah,
mounted on a framed collage
of his voyage, which includes a
drawing of the Discovery circl-
ing the earth, the American
flag traifing the craft, its red
and white stripes coming
around the globe nearly full
circle. The names of the crew
are embossed onto a NASA in-
signia with the name
"Discovery" running vertical-
ly down the board, the flight
number, 51-D, H-19 and date,
April 1985, at the top.
The cobalt navy blue ceramic
mezuzah, looking somewhat
like a model car, is mounted on
the left side of the tableau.
Around the mezuzah runs a
Hebrew phrase painted in
23-karat gold: "when I con-
sider the heavens, the work of
thy fingers, the moon and the
stars which thou has ordain-
ed." The verse is from the
Book of Prophets, 8:4.
"This is one of the most
unusual objects we've ever
received," said Joan Rosen-
baum, museum director, as she
accepted the gift.
Rosenbaum was flanked not
only by museum staff
members but by several
members of the family of
mezuzah craftswoman Marsha
Penzer, who was asked to
create several mezuzahs for
Hoffman by the J. Levine
Company, the well-known
purveyor of Judaica located on
New York's Lower East Side.
"It was wild," Penzer told
JTA when asked how she felt
two years ago when she stood
at Cape Canaveral with her
family and watched her han-
dicraft launched into space.
Penzer spoke about Hoffman's
extreme thoughtfulness in in-
viting her, her children and
parents to the lift-off. Since
then, he sent her a tape of a
radio interview he gave afer
the voyage which included a
tape he made aboard the
Discovery in which he describ-
ed his personal feelings and
Hoffman was also kind
enough, said Penzer, to per-
sonally call to invite her to the
museum for the presentation
of her mezuzah.
Penzer was contacted by J.
Levine in June 1984, after
Hoffman's rabbi in Houston,
Arnold Stiebel, met people
from the Judaica house while
in New York. Stiebel said that
Hoffman had insisted that the
parchment containing the
"shma" be kosher. He was
also asked by Hoffman to write
a prayer for him to say when
he circled the earth, as no
prayer yet existed to be
recited by an astronaut.
Stiebel, a Reform rabbi at
the Conservative congrega-
tion, Shaar Hashalom, fashion-
ed a short prayer for Hoffman
with the words "Blessed art
thou ..." preceding the last
verses of the "Aleinu" prayer:
"Praised art thou, Lord our
God, ruler of the universe, who
stretches forth the heaven and
lays the foundation of the
earth, whose glory is revealed
in the heavens above and
whose might is manifest in
the loftiest part." The prayer
was recited in Hebrew and
followed by the traditional
"Shehecheyanu," said when
experiencing something for
the first time.
Hoffman told JTA he recited
the prayer when awake at
night afer the other four
astronauts and Sen. Jake Gam
(R., Utah) who accompanied
them had gone to sleep.
Although it was his time to
sleep, as well, he said he just
wanted to silently watch the
magnificent celestial display
taking place all around him.
He was inspired to say the
prayer as he watched the beau-
ty of the earth below him and
thunderstorms swirling
around the skies.
The 42-year-old astro-
physicist, originally from
Scarsdale, in Westchester
County just north of New York
City, is an active member of
his synagogue in Houston, ser-
ving on the education commit-

already presented another of
the four mezuzahs he took with
him to the synagogue, where it

Edelshtein was released last
May because of poor health.
Before his imprisonment,
Edelshtein was a professor of
English in Moscow. He was
also a major teacher of
Judaism and Hebrew in the
underground Jewish education
In commenting on this latest
positive development, Rabbi
Joel Levine, who co-chaired
the Soviet Jewry Task Force
of the Community Relations
Council of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County this
year with Terry Rapaport,
said, "The Soviet Jewry Task
Force is gratified that both our
community refuseniks will
now be making their homes in
Israel and practicing Judaism
freely. However, we must con-
tinue our efforts and free
refuseniks like Yuli and Cher-
na who sincerely wish mean-
ingful Jewish lives."
Chema Goldort, this com-
munity's other adopted
refusenik, was given an exit
visa recently and is expected
to arrive in Israel the beginn-
ing of July. She will be met by
her two daughters and grand-
children and Sandra Goldberg,
a member of the Soviet Jewry
Task Force who was in-
strumental in securing her per-
mission to emigrate.
Tom Kelly, former editor of
the Palm Beach Post,
presented the case for Mr.
Edelshtein's adoption as a
community refusenik to the
Soviet Jewry Task Force.
When asked his reaction to the
whole family being granted ex-
it visas, he said, "I'm just over-
whelmed. I never dreamed
that our efforts locally would
be so successful so quickly.
Yuli is very meaningful to me.
I met with his wife and
daughter in their Moscow
apartment when he was on his
way to Siberia. It was the most
wrenching part of my visit to
the Soviet Union. To know
that he's now reunited with his
family and will soon be on his
way to Israel is terrific." Mr.
Kelly visited with the E"delsh-
tein family during his trip to
Russia in 1985.
Germany Probes
81 For
Nazi Crimes
Preliminary investigations are
pending in the cases of 81 in-
dividuals suspected of Nazi
atrocities during World War
II, and more than 1,000 cases
have come to court this year or
were turned over to state pro-
secutors, the Federal Office
for the prosecution of Nazi
Criminals in Ludwigsburg
But according to legal ex-
perts, only a small percentage
of the suspects will be tried
and even fewer are likely to be
sentenced. That is because as
time passes it has become
more difficult to prove an in-
dividual's involvement in Nazi
atrocities, the experts said.

Kippa, Coptic and Jew Find
A Link of Understanding
Senior News
Continued from Page 5
The non-Orthodox Jewish
community often makes me
feel like the Christian notion of
bearing the cross. I have to be
defensive and at times suffer
in order for others to evaluate
me based on my qualities and
frailities. Thus, the object I
wear on my head becomes not
a matter of my personal con-
viction and relationship with
God, but at the same time a
focal point for others to pro-
ject their biases and
perience more than a decade
ago. It was pre-Camp David
(Israel-Egyptian peace treaty).
I was in Nicosia, Cyprus and
had met a Coptic Egyptian
university student. The Cop-
tics also wear a head cover, a

the service that the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC) can provide
to Jews in Israel, Eastern
Europe, France and Moslem
countries, according to JDC
president Heinz Eppler.
Speaking to!the JDC semi-
annual board meeting here last
month, Eppler noted that the
1987 budget of $57 million was
based on currency exchange
rates of Dec. 1, 1986.
"Since then, the further
deterioration of the dollar has
resulted in an additional $1
million deficit," he told the
Outgoing executive vice
president Ralph Goldman

tional Development Program,

mine. This Coptic Egyptian,
and I got into the usual
rhetoric of blaming each
others' countries for all the
animosity between our
Since this was getting no
where fast, we decided to walk
through the Nicosia market
place. As we strolled through
these narrow streets,
shopkeeper after shopkeeper
peeked out of their respective
booths to look at the two
strangers in their midst. All
the shoppers seemed to stop
and stare. This bustling
market place had come to a
virtual standstill because of us.
Eventually, we realized
what was going on, and both of
us broke out into hysterical
laughter. In a matter of a few
minutes, the Cypriots had
managed to do what the two of
us could not manage. They had
bonded us together. Since we
were both wearing kippot
we were both strangers from a
similar place the two of us
"together" were a foreign
group. Through their projec-
tions toward our head-
covering (just about the only
thing we shared in common),
they assumed we were of the
same source.
POSSIBLY, this anecdote
can aptly describe what the
non-Orthodox community is
doing to the kippa-wearing
Jew. You assume we are
uniform when we are not. You
assume we are of the same
political orientation when this
is totally unfounded. And,
more often than not, you fail to
expend the energy to look
beyond or under the kippa. In
conclusion, it is my dream that
wearing a kippa be recognized
as a personal reflection of my
own religious observance and
not as an object which creates
boundaries between me and
my fellow Jews. This would be
a significant step in building
and bonding the Jewish com-
munity a priority which I
believe we all ascribe to and a
challenge for which all Jews
are equally responsible.

In Role As American and Jew

have no objection to the idea of
God, the Creator, but I find it
hard to follow the idea of God,
the Administrator. It is less
nobel than the grand idea of
God the Creator."
Although he was bom to an
Orthodox Jewish family,
whose many members perish-
ed in the Holocaust, Rabi says
he does not practice the rituals
of the Jewish religion. Asked if
he attends synagogue on Yom
Kippur, he said, "No."
RABI SAID he finds it
"wonderful" being an
American, and he feels very
comfortable as an American
Jew. "I am not suggesting that
there is no anti-Semitism here,
but I think it is natural. We
(the human race) are so built
that we do not like strangers.
We, the Jews, are different,
and no matter how much we
imitate the others, we are still
Jews," he said.
The Comprehensive Senior Center, through a Federal
Grant Title HI of the Older Americans Act, funded by
Gulf stream Area Agency on Aging, provides a variety of ser-
vices to persons 60 years or older, along with interesting and
entertaining educational and recreational programs. All
senior activities are conducted in compliance with Title VI of
the Civil Rights Act.
Did he encounter anti-
semitism during his academic
"Yes and no," he replied. "I
had a feeling that I would be
admitted to many elements of
society if I were not Jewish.
But once I was in the academic
world, I did not really en-
counter anti-Semitism. I
always made it clear that I am
a Jew. I found it an advantage
to be a Jew, to be part of a
great history ... and to the
non-Jews, Jews are a
mystery," Rabi observed.
He said that he is "first of all
an American. That's all I
know, that's the only ex-
perience I have." But he add-
ed, "I am very happy about
Israel, that the Jews were able
to create a state that makes
such significant contribution
to any element of civilization
and culture."

Two years ago it joined with

"We'd make a very complete
study of the existing rescue
frameworks in Israel," says
Kaufman. "There are a
number of them, run by dif-
ferent bodies. But we found
that they're uncoordinated,
and each gives only fragments
of help. Nothing provided a full
answer. We wanted to create a
new environment for these
troubled kids, not just fill in
the blanks."
Many of the ideas developed
by JDC's research teams were
shared by the Interim Station
staff and so the partnership
began. "We'd been learning as
we went along," says
Sulimani, "but we were always
under pressure. We work with
very troubled, difficult
youngsters, and we lacked
back-up financial and
academic. Now that the joint is
with us, we not only have their
close support, but they've also
brought in prestigious institu-

very great practical contribu-

ourselves differently. We've

Anti-Semitic Propaganda Accuses
Israelis Of Spreading AIDS
PARIS (JTA) A crude,
anonymous leaflet accusing
"young Israeli mercenaries"
of introducing and spreading
AIDS (Acquired Immune Defi-
ciency Syndrome) in Western
Europe and the rest of the
world, is being widely
distributed among French
high school students.
But there is more serious
concern over a pamphlet

which implies that Jews are
somehow responsible for the
fatal ailment for which no cure
has yet been found.
that Kaposi's sarcoma, one of
the earliest symptoms of
AIDS, is an affliction of elderly
Jewish patients. While the lat-
ter are not accused of
spreading AIDS, the inference
has been deplored by civil
rights organizations.
The tracts appearing in high
schools are clearly anti-Semitic
in intent. Some handwritten,
others badly typed, they are
signed by "The Anti-AIDS
Committee." The students are
urged to "pass on the word."
They accuse Israeli
"mercenaries working for
Mobutu" of having contracted
the disease and infected young
French women tourists
visiting Israel. The reference
is apparently to Mobutu Sese
Seko, the President of Zaire.

South Africa Aliya Spurs 1987 Increase
Aliya increased by 40 percent
in the first four months of 1987
compared to the same period
last year, Immigration and Ab-
sorption Minister Yaacov Tzur
reported to the Knesset. The
rise was due mainly to the ar-
rival of 630 immigrants from
South Africa since January. In
the same period of 1986, their
number was 286.
Tzur said he expected 1,000
immigrants from South Africa
by the end of the year. The
outlook for aliya from the
Soviet Union is not so good
although many more Jews are
leaving the USSR this year
than last year, he said.

arrived in Israel this year, the
dropout rate is still about 75

Jews who left the Soviet Union
since January is 2,500.
Tzur told the Knesset that
immigrants now have a
greater choice of residence
compared to the past. He said
his Ministry was making a
determined effort to simplify
bureaucratic procedures.
The religious MKs, David
Danino of the National
Religious Party and Shimon
Shlom of Shas, complained
that too little attention was
paid to the "spiritual absorp-
tion" of immigrants.
