Happy Chanukah
Politicians Examine Fault
For Terrorist Attack
'State Secrecy'
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin told the Knesset Mon-
day (Nov. 30) that the Israel
Defense Force high command
has issued strict orders to all
units aimed at preventing a
recurrence of the events on the
night of Nov. 25, when a single
glider-borne terrorist killed six
soldiers and wounded seven at
an IDF encampment near
Kiryat Shemona in upper
He assured the lawmakers
that the matter would not be
dropped "until the proper
lessons of that unfortunate in-
cident are fully learned."
Chief of Staff Gen. Dan
Shomron, meanwhile, assured
settlers in northern Israel that
the IDF is correcting the
security failures that allowed
the attack to succeed.
He said the IDF has the ap-
propriate means to deal with
future terrorist attempts to in-
filtrate Israel by air and that
the military high command will
take the proper disciplinary
measures. He stressed
however that the IDF will not
act hastily to "make heads
The incident, which has
severely shaken Israelis' con-
fidence in their northern
defense system, was the sub-
ject of sometimes heated
debate in the Cabinet at its
regular weekly session.
The ministers were briefed
by Rabin. But Rabin was at-
tacked by Commerce and In-
dustry Minister Ariel Sharon,
a Likud hardliner, who main-
tained that the problem was
not a lack of alertness at the
encampment but the absence
of "clear directives from the
political echelon to the defense
forces to wipe out terror."

Grounds For Denying Emigration Comes Under Scrutiny
(New York)
(JTA) Seventy
distinguished scientists from
12 countries called on the
Soviet Union to stop denying
exit visas to Jewish scientists
on grounds that they possess
state secrets.
The appeal was made in
Brussels at a one-day sym-
posium of the International
Federation of Scientists for
Soviet Refuseniks, a London-
based organization. The guest
of honor was Viktor Brailov-
sky, a computer scientist from
Moscow who was allowed to
leave for Israel in September
after waiting 15 years for an
exit permit.
A resolution adopted at the
gathering urged the Soviet
Union "to promulgate a law
defining national security and
the effect of knowledge of
'state secrets' on individual
rights." It also called on the
Soviets to establish a limit to
how long they could prevent
people from leaving the coun-
try for possession of classified
material and to inform all

scientists of this before they
begin their work.
The period a scientist is
denied emigration permission
should not exceed one year
from the time the individual
last had access to national
security information, the
resolution said. A copy will be
sent to the Soviet authorities.
At a similar gathering in
Eugene, Ore., this week, 175
scientists participating in the
annual meeting of the
American Physical Society
Division of Fluid Dynamics
petitioned Soviet scientific and
government officials to allow
the emigration of two col-
leagues, Benjamin Charny and
Leonid Dilrii, who have been
refused permission to
emigrate since 1979.
About 239 Jewish scientists
in the USSR reportedly have
been forced to wait years for
exit visas, during which time
they are denied access to scien-
tific institutions and are not
allowed to attend meetings in
their particular fields. The
families of these scientists are
often impeded from leaving
the country.
On Nov. 23, more than 100
refuseniks convened in
Moscow for a seminar on the
state secrecy problem, the
Coalition to Free Soviet Jews
reported in New York. With
members of the international
press in attendance, overflow
crowds in a two-room apart-
ment met in workshops to
discuss Soviet laws ana pro-
cedures governing emigration,
comparing these regulations
with those of other countries.
Many participants denied hav-
ing ever had access to
classified material.
One of the seminar's
organizers, Pavel Abramovich,
a 16-year refusenik, was fired
from his job as an electronics
engineer in 1971. He is
presently compiling the second
of two journals containing ar-
ticles on the issue of "state
secrecy." He hopes to have the
second volume of over 60 ar-
ticles published in the West.
Shevardnadze: Soviets Back
International Conference
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze told reporters
here that the Soviet Union
believes an international con-
ference "is the only approach"
to Arab-Israeli peace.
"This approach is shared by
all the UN Security Council
members and the Arabs," he
contended at a news con-
ference following talks here
with U.S. Secretary of State
George Shultz.

conference bilateral negotia-
tions are impossible. I know

Federation IVJA 40th Anniversary Mission
Seeing Israel Through Different Eyes
After participating in two
previous missions to Israel as
well as visiting the Jewish
homeland two other times, one
would think that there was lit-
tle Dr. Norma J. SchuJman
could learn on her latest
United Jewish Appeal 40th
Anniversary Mission to Israel
in October. Not true. Although
the Mission for contributors of
$10,000 or more to the Jewish
Federation-United Jewish Ap-
peal Campaign attracted 200
people from all over the United
States, Dr. Schulman was part
of a smaller group of 30 who
were given an in-depth
political orientation of the
myriad of problems Israel
faces as a democracy in the
Middle East.
"We were asked to see mat-
ters from many differing
perspectives," Dr. Schulman,
a member of the Board of
Directors of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, said. "The mission
participants were people who
had been to Israel before and
were deeply committed per-
sonally and financially. This
mission allowed us to broaden
our experience and understan-
ding of the issues."
Dr. Schulman, a
psychotherapist, sees herself
professionally trained to iden-
tify and define problem areas
with the purpose of
negotiating differences. This
was the perspective she
brought to the mission. Her
rapid delivery underscored her
enthusiasm for this mission
during an interview with the
"Jewish Floridian." "It was
made clear to me that those
who have an interest in resolv-
ing the critical geo-political
situation in the Middle East
start from differing defini-
tions. There is no agreement
to what the definitions are;
therefore, finding solutions
becomes even more
Dr. Norma J. Schulman
Moreover, the conflicts
within Israel demand the
wisdom of a Solomon to
resolve; for example, the issue
of demography versus
democracy, according to Dr.
Schulman. "If given a vote,
the growing Arab population
could, in time, out vote the
Jewish population. The cur-
rent Jewish majority in Israel
is divided into those who want
Israel to be an exclusively
Jewish state, those who want
Israel to be a democracy, and
those who are trying to find a
way for Israel to be a Jewish
state and a democracy. Israel
wants to be secure but not at
the price of being a garrison
state," Dr. Schulman said.
Religious plurality conflicts
continue to plague Israel. Not
only are there varying opi-
nions among the Orthodox,
Conservative, and Reform, Dr.
Schulman said, but relatively
new political parties advocate
their own answers to Israel's
problems. Dr. Schulman cited
as an example the Tehiya
(Rebirth) party which was
formed in 1979 to renew
Zionist commitment. Tehiya
sees aliyah as the answer. On
the other hand, Rabbi
Kahane's Kach party's answer
is to expel Arabs from Israel.
From her years as a social
worker, Dr. Schulman
understands the difficulties in
solving Israel's ongoing inter-
nal social problems, and is
most impressed by the suc-
cesses of Project Renewal.
This people-to-people program
was started in 1977 to upgrade
Israel's depressed
neighborhoods through a part-
nership among the residents,
the Israeli government, and
communities in the diaspora.
Dr. Schulman was unable to
visit Hod Hasharon, this com-
munity's Project Renewal
neighborhood, on this trip,
although she has seen the
remarkable progress made on
previous missions. "What I see
is the finest of social work
principles being put into ac-
tion. There is a vitality there.

Dr. Lorber To Head Federation/UJA Campaign
At Fountains For 7th Consecutive Year
After serving six straight
years-as chairman of the an-
nual Jewish Federation/United
Jewish Appeal Campaign at
The Fountains, it was only
natural for Dr. Jerome W.
Lorber to have harbored
thoughts of a sabbatical.
However, all such thoughts
gave way to a profound sense
of duty when called upon by
General Campaign Chairman,
Jeanne Levy, to again lead the
drive at the expansive Lake
Worth residential complex.
Dr. Lorber's acceptance of
the chairmanship for the
seventh consecutive year at-
tests to his understanding of
the importance of the Cam-
paign to the survival of Israel
and the well-being of the
Jewish community of the Palm
Beaches. Mrs. Levy's an-
nouncement of his acceptance
further noted that his reap-
pointment underscores the
need for consistency and
retention of leadership in the
annual Campaign. She
reported that during Dr.
Lorber's six years as chair-
man, the drive at The Foun-
tains more than quadrupled
and last year topped all major
divisions in percentage of in-
creased giving.
Since moving to The Foun-
tains in the early 1970's from
New York City, Dr. Lorber has
continued his interest and in-
volvment in Jewish philan-
thropies, communal affairs

and commitment to Israel. For
his efforts locally he has been
singled out for several com-
munity service awards and
Much of the effectiveness
and progressive growth of the
Campaign at The Fountains is
attributed to Dr. Lorber's
ability to recruit and maintain
a team of responsible
associates and workers. Addi-
tionally, he has keyed the drive
around two popular events: a
Special Gifts Cocktail Party
and a Golf Tournament/Lun-
cheon. This year the Cocktail
Party is scheduled for Jan. 13
and the Golf Tournament/Lun-
cheon on Jan. 24.
Heading this year's Cam-
paign with Dr. Lorber are
Associate Chairmen Albert
Schnitt and Dorothy Fried-
man; Special Gifts Co-
chairmen Alexander Gruber

Conflict On Brandeis Menu
The story broke first in The New York
Times, followed by reports and breast
beating around the country: Brandeis
University, that bastion of Jewish academe
and intelligentsia had opened its Waltham
kitchen to treifl Pork and shellfish were be-
ing served in the same line as a more tradi-
tional Jewish diet.
Proponents of either side of the
gastronomical issue issued passionate
statements on the rightness of a university
to be free and hospitable to all or to be ex-
clusively Jewish in its victual offerings.
Neglected in the provocative headlines
were the facts; Brandeis, in its 39th year,
had been founded as a non-sectarian school,
open to all. Its dining room policy had
always been sensitive to the observant Jew
but, at the same time, had always offered
non-kosher meals, as well. The fact, the
university's board of trustees argued, is that
lobster and bacon, differed not in kind from
the availability of a cheeseburger.
So. The school, which is perceived as
'Jewish' actually serves a student body com-
prised of 'only' 60 percent Jewish students.
It is and has been a campus founded with a
great deal of Jewish support-read, financial
support. While a university should and is, in
the best sense, a place of freedom and in-
tellectual investigation, it is also one
frought, saddled and/or enriched by
Brandeis, even if it was not intended,
wears a mantle of Jewishness. If it now in-
tends to uncloak itself, or shrug off the
perception of that mantle, then surely if will
suffer the consequences.
Witness the formation of "True Diversi-
ty" and "BADJ" Brandeis Anti-
DeJudaization Coalition, two groups com-
prised of Brandeis undergraduates who
have chosen to protect their school against
the perceived onslaught of assimilation.
They see the ebb of the school's Jewish
character in the menu change and in the
neutralization of an otherwise Jewish
It is probably a measure of the very
freedom that an American college campus
should provide that the conflict is ongoing.
The story started with 'Brandeis serving
up pork and shellfish.' It had a frivolous tone
to it. The results are proving to be far more
than inconsequential. And, we believe that
the move was unnecessary.
Arab States Too Vocal
On Terrorist Strike
Only days after the Arab League summit
conference ended with the Israel-Palestinian
dispute and PLO leader Arafat virtually ig-
nored, terror from the skies visited Israel s
northernmost settlements.
Six Israeli soldiers died in a hang glider at-
tack, and immediately Arab governments
competed with each other in a rush to ap-
plaud the success of the strike from
Such a wanton display of ongoing hatred
for the Jewish state warrants an official
United States reaction. If we do not de-
nounce terrorism supported by nations, we
weaken the pressure within Israel which
urges peace negotiations. Washington must
not further delay speaking out against what
is virtually certain to escalate military con-
frontation in the Middle East.

Arizona Governor: Christian
Ideals Make U.S. Good For Jews
Gov. Evan Mecham recently
added two logs to the political
fire burning around him, ac-
cording to the Greater
Phoenix Jewish News.
The newspaper took the
Republican governor to task in
an editorial for comments de-
nying the separation of state
he reportedly made during a
celebration of the bicentennial
of the U.S. Constitution.
"(T)his is a great Christian
nation that recognizes Jesus
Christ as the God of the land,"
the governor recently told the
National Center for Constitu-
tional Studies convention in
Salt Lake City. "It is the best
place in the world for Jews,
Hindus and atheists ... and
everybody else because ...
(the Constitution) is human
rights and freedom to all."
The Jewish News noted that
"Mecham obliterated the Con-
stitutional mandate for separa-
tion of church and state,
established an official 'God of
the land ... and gave the en-
tire country a paternalistic pat
on the head for being so ac-
commodating to 'Jews, Hindus
and atheists ..."
The constitutional studies
center is headed by his political
crony, W. Cleon Skousen, who
wrote a textbook in which
black children are described as
That speech closely followed
a Sept. 26 presentation by
Mecham to the Constitution
Awareness Conference in
Richardson, Texas. Elaine
DeRosa of the Jewish News
reports that other speakers
there espoused views blaming
Jews for the nation's pro-
blems, and that anti-Semitic
materials were distributed.
Mecham denied he knew of
the anti-Semitism.
The conference was spon-
sored by the American Liberty
Association, whose list of
books reportedly includes
writings by Eustace Mullins,
described by Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith staffer
Joel Breshin as a writer and
speaker against Jews since the
The list also includes an arti-
cle published by the Lord's
Covenant Church of Phoenix
in which Jews were blamed for
foisting the 1976 Swine Flu
epidemic upon non-Jews.
Mecham's press secretary,
Ken Smith, said the governor
denied "guilt by association"
and that his talk, on the Con-
stitution, is one he regularly
He said the governor ac-
cepted the invitation to speak
from George Hansen, a former
U.S. Representative from
Idaho, and that Mecham did
not attend any other talks at
the conference. Mecham con-
firmed that in a letter to the
Jewish News.
"Please rest assured," the
governor wrote, "that in no
way do I personally support,
condone or tolerate such anti-
Semitic materials."
Mecham's term has been
marked by controversy for his
cancellation of the state
celebration of Martin Luther
King Day and his political
alliances with alleged
criminals and ultra-right-
wingers, A citizens' group has
mounted a statewide petition
drive to begin impeachnment
proceedings against him.

The First Struggle For Religious Freedom
Chanukah week, which Jews
all over the world will be
celebrating for eight days by
the lighting of candles, by
special prayers and by the giv-
ing of gifts, once again serves
to remind us that Jews were
the first nation known to
history who put up a fight for
religious freedom and won.
Chanukah celebrates the
revolt led by Judas Maccabeus
and his four brothers in the
year 165 BCE, more than two
thousand years ago, against
the tyrannical Greek-Syrian
King, Antiochus Epiphanes,
who was then ruling Palestine
and wanted to impose Greek
pagan rites upon the Jews and
destroy their own
monotheistic religion.
One of the means for ac-
complishing this which An-
tiochus adopted was to order
some of his soldiers stationed
in Jerusalem to defile the
Jewish Temple there, since the
Jerusalem Temple was the
very center of Jewish religious
life in the country.
After a short but bitter
struggle, the Maccabeans won
the fight against the hordes of
Antiochus, cleansed the Tem-
ple and relighted the candles,
which by a miracle, so tradi-
tion has it, burned for eight
days instead of the one day
they would normally burn.
That is why we call Chanukah
the Festival of Lights.
The story of the Maccabean
revolt is told in the Book of
Chanukah celebrates the
revolt led by Judas Mac-
cabeus and his four
brothers against the
tyrannical Greek-Syrian
King, Antiochus
Epiphanes, who was then
ruling Palestine and
wanted to impose Greek
pagan rites upon the
Jews. ..
Maccabees, one of the
Apocryphal books which did
not get into the authorized Bi-
ble at the time it was decided
which of the writings
historical, legalistic, prophetic,
poetic which had been ac-
cumulating in the Jewish
religious tradition over many
centuries, should be canonized
as part of the Jewish Sacred
Scriptures, the Hebrew Bible,
which Christians later called
the Old Testament.
Apparently, the Book of the
Maccabees was considered too
recent, too new, to be included
in the Hebrew Bible. But it is a
curious fact that the Roman
Catholic Church does include
the Book of the Maccabees and
other Apocryphal writings in
its Bible. Though the Jews did
not take in the Book of the
Maccabees in their Bible, they
did decide to commemorate
the Maccabean revolt and the
rededication of the Jerusalem
Temple by celebrating an
eight-day semi-holiday every
year, beginning with the 25th
day of the Hebrew month of
The struggle for religious
freedom, for the right to wor-
ship according to tine dictates
of one's conscience, has been
going on for the past two thou-
sand years at various times in
various parts of the world. The
early Christians were
persecuted by the pagan
authorities of the Roman Em-
pire because they wouldn't
regard the Roman Emperor as
a sort of god and wouldn't bow
down to his image.
In later ages, Orthodox
Christians themselves began
persecuting all who dissented
from the officially endorsed
Christian creed, and that in-
cluded not only Jews and
moslems but also Christians
who interpreted the teachings
of Jesus differently from the
Orthodox Catholic Church.
The Inquisition was set up in
Spain, and Jews and others
were burned at the stake; in
France, there was the St. Bar-
tholomew Day massacre of
thousands of Protestants (call-
ed Huguenots) by Roman
Catholics in the 16th Century.
Jews were forced to live in
ghettoes, and in the 17th Cen-
tury, less than a hundred years
after Luther in germany had
led the Protestant revolt
against Catholicism, there was
a Thirty-Years War in the
German-speaking countries in
which for three decades
Catholics and Protestants kept
murdering each other because
of their differing religions.
It was only toward the end
of the 18th Century, with the
coming of the American and
French revolutions, that the
idea of religious toleration
began to dawn upon the
populations of the Western
world. But this toleration, this
revolt against religious
fanaticism, which denied
freedom of expression to any
sect but its own, started, we
have to admit, with a revolt
against all the historic
religions Christianity, both
Catholic and Protestant, and
Judaism, out of which Chris-
tianity had sprung.
In the newly formed United
States of America, which, had
become an independent
republic after overthrowing
British rule, Thomas Paine, a
very influential revolutionary
writer and propagandist, in his
pamphlet 'fThe Age of
Reason" attacked all historic
In France, the revolutionists
of 1789, or rather the intellec-
tual leaders of Hhe Revolution,
went even further than some
of the intellectual leaders of
the American Revolution.
While the intellectual leaders
of the American Revolution
called themselves Deists, that
is, believers in One God, but
disbelievers in the authority of
any Church, the French in-
tellectual rebelds were really
atheists who, when they took
over the power from the
French monarchy and nobility,
tried to enthrone a "Goddess
of Reason," abolished Chris-
tian holidays and even the
Christian calendar.

Random Thoughts
There isn't a Bubbeh or
Zaydeh alive who doesn't look
forward to a visit from their
kinder and the adorable
avnecklach. When you lived up
North, there was always a
gang for any Shabbat dinner
or a Passover Seder. You set a
magnificent table, fed them
regally, enjoyed everyone en-
thusiastically, and then said a
temporary goodbye. But now
that you reside permanently in
Florida, it's a whole different
ball game.
When they visit you down
South, it's not just for a meal.
The gang flies to sunshine
land, settles in for a vacation,
and the minimum stay might
be from a week ranging all the
way up to an entire season. I
am sure you love them dearly,
but there are certain things
that you should know about
this situation. I have been
there and, once more, I am a
self-appointed authority on the
subject of entertaining
Concerning food, give them
no choices. If you do, they'll
make you meshugah! One kid
is a vegetarian and eats no
meat, just stuff that grows,
and preferably it should be
organic. Another one is heavy
into broiled fish and chicken.
Still another wants whole
grains and natural foods. Take
a deep breath and then do your
own thing. Make your gedemp-
teh brisket with a mountain of
potatoes and gravy! Show
them how delicious real old-
fashioned Jewish cooking can
be. Let them rediscover kugel,
and tsimiss, and knaidlach.
You'll have converts in ab-
solutely no time at all.
Forget restaurants. Our
Yuppies don't know from early
birds or twofers. Better they
should all dine together at

Mother: "Johnny, it's time

Mother (a little louder):

No action.
Mother (louder): "I SAID
No action.
Several minutes later,

Sound familiar? How often do
you find yourself in this situa-
tion with your child? Studies of
communication show that if
the message you are giving is
not acted upon after the first
or second time it is given, it
will not be responded to at all,
no matter how many times you
repeat yourself. All that hap-
pens is you, the parent, has
raised your blood pressure and
lost control of the situation.
In order to improve this
situation, a parent does have
alternatives. You need to
remember that you are the
parent, not the child, and
therefore, you have the right
to make the rules for your
family. You also need to treat
your child with respect. When
your child misbehaves, express
strong disapproval. For exam-
ple: rather than calling your
child a wild animal, reply "I do
not like how you are behaving!
Do not run around the
restaurant!" If this is unsuc-
cessful, give your child a
choice. For example, "Either
stop running around or you are
going straight home and to
your room. It is extremely
important that once the choice
is given that you carry through
with the alternative if your
child continues to disobey you.
Your child needs to know what
your expectations are and
what will happen if the expec-
tations are not adhered to.
Alternatives for not follow-
ing the rules are time out (sen-
ding a child to his/her room, to
sit on the stairs, etc. for a few
minutes); taking awav a
privilege or a special toy for a
short period of time; or going
to bed early. Physicial punish-
merit-jp ../fliyrW fjF&frN*
alternative. It is also impor-
tant for you to explain to your
child why his/her behavior is
unacceptable so that he/she
will learn right from wrong.
Also reinforce with your child
that you still love him/her even
though you are angry at
him/her at that moment.
These suggestions will usual-
ly work if you, the parent, can
be consistent and remain firm
on the rules and carrying
through with the negative
alternatives. Remember you
are the adult! Anyways, some-
day soon your child will grow
up and all of this will just be a
distant memory.

Besides, nothing offered com-
pares with our beaches, ocean

them go their own way,
without formal plans or

Sleeping accommodations
sometimes pose peculiar pro-
blems. My solution is to give
the grown-ups the beds to
sleep in, but young ones do
very nicely on air mattresses
or even on the carpet. When
kids are tired, they will sleep
anywhere and a firm floor
never hurt anyone's back.
All of us want to shower
grandchildren with gifts and
presents. If the kids are
grown, the most practical ac-
tion is to give them cash. They
can hit the malls, window
shop, and buy what they like.
The fads and fashions of to-
day's youngies are unique.
Better they should handle it
than you.
Even buying for little ones
can become difficult. I have
bought toys for my grandsons
and they ended up playing
with the boxes and ignoring
the contents. My solution to
this particular situation is to
collect a variety of inexpensive
items. My boys have the ability
to break any toy manufactured
in record time. So if it's go-
ing to get broken anvway. go-
ing the cheapest route is cer-
tainly more practical.
Most of all, you must keep
cool and stay relatively calm
during the onslaught. The
house will be a complete
shambles, mountains of laun-
dry will pile up, and you'll
think you are buying food for
the Polish army. Be of good
cheer and keeping smiling.
You love them all, but try to
remember that it's just a short
term situation. Before you
know it, the visit will be over
and many tearful goodbyes
will occur. Of course they will
be missed, but blissful peace
and quiet is the aftermath for
you to treasure.
Speaking of kisses and good-
byes, I have come up with a
way to become an instant
millionaire. How about taking
all those hugs and kisses and
packaging them for future
remembrance. Just think how
exciting it would be to open a
box and receive an embrace
from your absent child.
Wouldn't it be incredible to
receive a kiss in absentia? A
veritable fortune would be
made if you could market such
an invention. I guess I'm just a
mother who dreams up im-
possible delights.
Well, it just can't be done
and I realize that I'm whistling
Dixie, but my imagination
often runs away with me. I
guess I'll just have to wait for
their next winter visit. .. and
let me tell you, even with the
chaos, the noise, the crowding,
and the schmutz, it will be
more than worth it. You've
had your share of company,
and I know you agree.

What the Sages of The Talmud Said About The Candles
The sages of the Talmud, we
are told, debated the question
of the Chanukah candles.
Beth Shamai, the more con-
servative school, held to the
view that on the first night of
Chanukah, all eight candles
should be lit and progressively
reduced by one on each suc-
ceeding night. This was in ac-
cord with the doctrine of the
Beth Shmai, which stated that
Israel must always look back
to the old as the time of
greatest splendor.
Beth Hillel, however, held to
the contrary view. On the first
night of Chanukah one candle
should be lit and on each suc-
ceeding night another candle
added, as the house of Hillel

believed that Israel must
always look to the future as
the time of its greatest glory.
The adopted rule is in accor-
dance with the liberal school of
Hillel; that the past, however
great that past was, is to be
eclipsed in the future.
The doctrine of Hillel is
radical. Israel has witnessed
many great miracles. The Bi-
ble and the prayer book recite
the stories of these miracles of
the past. Yet Hillel, the great
man among the rabbis of two
thousand years ago, went so
far as to suggest that they
were to be outdone in the

The Jews seemed about to be
wiped out. But in a little
obscure town some 20 miles
from Jerusalem, there was a
devoted Jew, Mattathias, who
raised the banner of
resistance. He but lit a small
candle and the enemy was
done for. The weak made

We have witnessed in our
own day a miracle equaling
that of the glorious Maccabean
victory. Some might even say
that in accordance with the
doctrine of Hillel, that it even
transcends it. A whole host of
nations this time, abetted by
the powerful Kremlin state,
sought the destruction of
Israel. But God has not ceased
to work miracles.

Present Argentina With Documents On Schwammberger

and atrocities in the ghettos
and slave labor camps of
Przemsyl, Rozwadow,
Stalowa-Woda and the concen-
tration camp in Mielce.
But the authorities here
acknowledge there may be dif-
ficulties. The main obstacle is
that Schwammberger holds

authorities can find a way to

The Oil Wick
The Oldest Symbol Of Chanukah
It's Chanukah time again.
And to understand it best we
can go back to its oldest sym-
bol, the oil wick burning for
eight days amid the ruin and
destruction of the Temple.
What does the oil wick burning
for eight days amid the ruin
and destruction of the Temple
teach us? It teaches us that
despite the apparent havoc
and breakdown of all things
around us, if there is some liv-
ing fire left, some living spark,
some flicker of hope still alive
that using that, that lit-
tleness of littleness, we can
make it through and come out
confident again and make it
through to the winning side.
The oil wick burning for
eight days amid the ruin and
destruction of the Temple
teaches us never to despair ut-
terly, never to give up utterly,
never to doubt utterly, and
never to lose faith utterly. It
teaches us that no matter how
bleak things seem, no matter
how broken and ruinous things
seem, if we can keep a small
light burning, then hope there
still is! It teaches us never to
doubt completely, never to
give up or give in completely.
Who would have thought
that after two thousand years
our people would have regain-
ed the grounds where two of
our Temples formerly stood?
Who would have thought that
after two thousand years it is
now possible to see a third
Temple rise on the very site
where formerly two other
Temples stood and fell in ruin?
Who would ever have thought
that in the Chanukah of the
future we may celebrate it not
for the oil wick that burned for
eight days but for the actual
rebuilding of the Temple on
the very spot where two prior
temples were once destroyed?
Do not fancy this a foolish
thought. There are many
stable heads now considering
this very possibility.
There are many who believe
in the rebuilding of the Temple
now. Can you imagine how we,
the Jews all over the world,
will celebrate that Chanukah
on the day of which the foun-
dation stone for the third Tem-
ple will be laid?
That Chanukah will be the
United Synagogue of America Offers
Shabbat And Chanukah Kits
The United Synagogue of
America announces the
availability of a Shabbat kit
and a Chanukah Package.
Both are designed to enhance
the experience of United
Synagogue youth in their
observance of these days on
the Jewish calendar.
Rabbi Jerome M. Epstein,
United Synagogue Senior
Vice-President and Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer, stated that
"for a long time, we have been
concerned with enabling our
young Jewish population, no
matter where they are, to live
a Jewish lifestyle. These kits
provide them with the oppor-
tunity to observe these special
days and it is our hope that
they may be motivated to do
so. We do not believe in an 'all
or nothing at all' approach.
Every mitzvah observed
strengthens the individual and
thereby strengthens the
Jewish community."
The Shabbat Kit comes com-
plete with candlesticks,
candles, challah cover, grape
{'uice, silver-plated kiddish cup,
lavdallah candle, United
Synagogue calendar, and
USY songster. The total cost
for the entire kit, including
mailing, is $15.
"The Chanukah Package is
another essential means of
communicating to our young
people the vital message that
being away from home and
family does not preclude obser-
vance of the Jewish holidays
and festivals," according to
United Synagogue Interna-
tional President, Franklin D.
Kreutzer. "We must utilize

The development, which

the Camp David accords with
every means at our disposal to
equip our youth to combat
those influences they en-
counter which would lure them
from the practice of Judaism."
Two Chanukah Packages are
offered: both include a wooden
dreidel, Chanukah pen, the
story of Chanukah, instruc-
tions for dreidel games,
Chanukah recipes and songs,
appropriate Berakhot, and
chocolate gelt. The package
which sells for $5 contains, in
addition to the items already
listed, a box of candles, a
chrome menorah, and a
ceramic Chanukah tzedakah
Both the Shabbat Kit and
the Chanukah Packages are
available from the Department
of Youth Activities of the
United Synagogue of America,
and are ideal gifts for high
school and college students.

The greatest Chanukah to be
celebrated on this earth since
Chanukah was first started to
be celebrated. May our
children and grandchildren
come to witness it soon.
So again we are taught
not to yield to darkness, not to
yield to the decimation of
faith, not to yield to loss. Know
that the light bums not only
for eight days, but that it
burns always, for you and
yours. Yes, it burns forever.

From The Demographic Study
Current Jewish Identification
Orthodox 2%
Respondents to the Demographic Study
sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County were asked whether they con-
sidered themselves Orthodox, Conservative,
Reform, or "Just Jewish." It is important to
realize that this is a philosophical definition,
and not one that is necessarily based upon
synagogue membership. Part-year residents
are somewhat more likely to call themselves
Conservative than full-year residents. The
percentage of Conservative Jews is highest in
Boynton Beach (50 percent), Century
Village/Golden Lakes (46 percent), and Well-
Just Jewish"
ington/Royal Palm Beach (44 percent). The
percentage of Jews calling themselves
Reform is highest in Jupiter (52 percent) and
lowest in Century Village/Golden Lakes (21
percent). The study found that the percen-
tage of those who are Orthodox increases
with aee: whereas, the percentacre of "Just
Jewish" decreases with age. Forty percent
of households with children in the Palm Beach
study area (Boynton Beach to Jupiter/Te-
questa) call themselves "Just Jewish," 40
percent Reform, 18 percent Conservative,
and 3 percent Orthodox.

Three Varieties of Fruit?
Yes, you know apples and oranges are fruit, but did you know that Kasha
is made from buckwheat, and that buckwheat is a member of the rhubarb family
(pink stalks and all!)
Buckwheat is the best source of high biological protein in the entire plant
kingdom very close to the protein level of whole milk solids. Kasha,
the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel, is rich in potassium,
phosphorous, fiber and vitamin B, and NO CHOLESTEROL. Thus, it is
an economical food high in balanced protein and it's delicious, too!

Hadashot reported that the
terrorists themselves have for-

high alert for an IDF reprisal.
Reports from the Sidon area

"Israel is likely to undertake a

close offshore. They have also
mobilized their anti-aircraft
defenses, which consist
primarily of Soviet-made
SAM-7 ground-to-air missiles.
The Christian radio station
"Voice of Lebanon" was
quoted by Hadashot as saying
that an IDF tank column was
seen moving along the coastal
highway north of Nakura in
the direction of Tyre. The
report was not confirmed.

A Memorable Event In Jewish History
The year 168 BCE is one of
the most memorable in Jewish
history. The fate of Judaism
depended on the decision made
by a small band of Jews in that
At no time previously did
Judaism confront a force
which deliberately set out to
destroy it, as when it faced
Hellenism, brought into the
land by the successors of con-
queror Alexander the Great.
Jews were never afraid of
new ideas, regardless of their
source. Every novel idea which
appealed to them and which
they borrowed from their
neighbors, they assimilated, as
a blood transfusion, only for
the refining and reinforcing of
their own.
First, Hellenism was not be-
ing discriminatelv absorbed by
Jews for the enhancement of
their outlook, but was rather
imitated in every detail. This
process of imitation led to the
weakening of Judaism and the
gradual emergence of a new
but not improved pattern of
Second, while Hellenism was
at first, left to displace
Judaism by its own appeal and
penetration, because of An-
tiochus' desire to hasten the
program of Hellenization, it
later was declared a culture by
decree, the official culture of
the land. Hence, Judaism was
tried in two crucibles. One
which was fashioned by the
Jews themselves, ana the
other which came from the
outside. On the one hand, Jews
in substantial numbers
weakened the faith of their
fathers by adopting Hellenism
as their mode of life, and on
the other hand, the conqueror
imposed this culture by force
on the entire citizenry.
Even though it must be said
in all fairness that Hellenism
had much to offer in enriching
Judaism by its philosophy,
drama, poetry, architecture,
and sports, it at the same time
lacked much to make it com-
pletely desirable.
Observing the amphitheater
where human beings were
done to death for the amuse-
ment of bloodthirsty mobs, the
Jew concluded, as Walter
Pater did centuries later,
"what was needed was the
heart that would make it im-
possible to witness all this; and
the future would be with the
forces that could beget a heart
like that."
Jewish culture developed
such a heart, and it is this
heart that made itself felt
through the heroic decision of
the Hasmonean family and a
small group of staunch sup-
porters of the Torah to free
Israel from its Hellenistic
War to the end was declared
on Hellenism. The battle lasted
three years. Judea regained
her soul. Judaism triumphed.
Through the ages, the Hasmo-
nean victory is commemorated
in the home and the synagogue
for eight days as a festival of
light and gladness, a festival
which does not especially pay
homage to the leaders of the
battle, although their heroic
feats of courage are not
forgotten, but rather one
which stresses the value of
light and freedom of the soul.
Like our ancestors under the
impact of Hellenism, Jews to-
day find themselves living in
two cultures, their own and
that of their environment.
They have a choice to make.
They can either turn to the ma-
jority culture for their pattern
of behavior and thereby lose
their identity, individuality
and self respect, or they can ab-
sorb the finest elements of the
majority culture for the
enhancement of their own
spiritual treasures, and thus
remain true to themselves.
The Chanukah lights speak
softly and confidently the pro-
mise of victory to the brave,
free, independent souls, who
under test and trial, choose to
remain true to themselves.

Greece: Cannot Ask For
Brunner's Extradition

Senator Edward Kennedy receives con-
gratulations from Simon Wiesenthal upon
receiving the Simon Wiesenthal Center's
Distinguished Service Award, at the Fifth
Annual Eastern Regional Dinner in New
York City. With them are (left to right)
Greek government favors br-
inging Nazi war criminals to
justice but cannot demand the
extradition of Alois Brunner,
because it is bound by laws
passed during a previous ad-
ministration, government
spokesman Yanms Roumbatis
The Greek Jewish communi-
ty had made a formal request
to the government a year ago
to seek the extradition of
Brunner from Syria, where he
has lived for more than 20
Brunner, a deputy and chief
aide to Adolf Eichmann, arriv-
ed in Salonika, Greece, in
February 1943 and immediate-
ly signed orders for the exter-
mination of the 46,000 Jews in
the city.
Roumbatis said that two
laws Nos. 3933 and 4016 -
adopted in 1959 when Greece
was ruled by the conservative
government of Konstantinos
Karamanlis, suspended the
prosecution of war criminals in
Greece and transferred that
right to West German legal
According to Roumbatis, the
present socialist regime head-
ed by Premier Andreas Papan
dreou is unhappy with this
situation and wants it made
clear that those laws do not
reflect current government
"The intention and wish of
our country is that those war
criminals that are running
around free in the world be
caught and brought to
justice," he said.
On Nov. 25, 1986, the Cen-
tral Jewish Board of Greece,
an umbrella organization of
the country's 5,000 Jews, ask-
ed the government to seek
Brunner's extradition. The
central board, an affiliate of
the World Jewish Congress,
made the request after it was
firmly established that Brun-
ner was living in Damascus.
Brunner confirmed it
himself in an interview with
the West German magazine
Bunte in 1986 after living for
years under the alias Georg
Fischer. Bunte claimed at the
time that Brunner was
prepared to give himself up as
long as he had assurances he
would not be handed over to
Nelson Peltz, Samuel Belzberg, Rabbi Mar-
vin Hier and Frances Belzberg. The Simon
Wiesenthal Center is the largest institution
devoted to preserving the memory of the
Holocaust and to combatting anti-Semitism
and bigotry in their manv forms and guises.

The original
Declaration of Independence.
Chanukah is The Jewish Festival of Lights. It is a yearly recurring declaration of mankind's
independence, a memorable reassertion of the God-given right of human beings to live and worship
in freedom. The Chanukah candles illuminates justice. They are pure light of freedom that glows in
the heart of Man. They are what makes us Jews.

First Struggle For Religious Freedom

substituting for it a new calen-
dar of their own.
After turmoil of civil war
died down in France, and
Napoleon Bonaparte declared
himself Emperor and took all
governmental powers in his
hands, the historic religions
reestablished themselves in
the country, but church and
state were separated, and
religious toleration for all sects
was proclaimed.
In North America, this
separation of church and state
and consequent toleration of
all religious groups had been
proclaimed years earlier in the
Bill of Rights which was at-
tached to the Constitution of
the United States and is still
In this 20th Century, the
struggle for religious liberty
has suffered some severe
reversals, particularly in Com-
munist Russia, where the Jews
are the main sufferers from
Pre-Historic Human
Bones Unearthed
Human bones that experts
date back some 8,000 years
were found recently at the site
of an ancient submerged
village on the Mediterranean
seabed offshore from the town
of Atlit.
The discovery was made by
Professor Avraham Ronen and
researcher Ehud Galili of
Haifa University. The marine
archaeologists spotted the
bones after a storm that
cleared away layers of sand
that had covered them. They
were reported in an "excellent
state of preservation."
Examination of one of the
skeletons detected signs that
the person suffered from an
ear infection common among
sea divers. If this is proven
correct, it would be the first
evidence that human beings
dived for fish in prehistoric
The village itself, under 46
feet of water, was discovered
four years ago. It is believed to
have met its fate at the end of
the last Ice Age when rising
Jewish Theater
Gets Major
Endowment Grant
A Traveling Jewish Theater, a
decade-old acting troupe baaed
here, has been awarded a
$72,000 matching grant from
the National Endowment for
the Arts.
The Northern California
Jewish Bulletin reports that
the infusion of funds will allow
the addition of a fourth
member to the ensemble, the
hiring of a director and
research writer for new pro-
ducts and permit the troupe to
perform more than one work
at a time.
The troupe has performed
for more than 100,000 people
throughout the United States,
Western Europe and Israel.
The new funds also will
mean an increase in artists'
salaries, frozen at $16,000-per-
year, and add substantially to
its $300,000 annual budget.
The grant, an NEA Ongoing
Ensembles award for 1988-89,
must be matched with
$200,000 from other sources
over five years and is
renewable for up to five years.
flooded the coastal
the fanaticism of a secular
religion the religion of com-
munism which is the official
creed and persecutes the older
theistic religions. Judaism,
which in the Soviet Union re-
mains entirely Orthodox, is the
greatest victim of this persecu-
tion because the Communist,
regime is afraid of Judaism's
international connections, and
so it tries to pulverize Judaism
by denying rabbis the right to
be present at international
Jewish conferences and by
even forbidding the formation
of a national federation of
synagogues, an intercom-
munication of Jewish con-
gregations, within Russia
Why it forbids the Jews to
form such a national federa-
tion and to communicate with
their brethren abroad while
allowing these things to such
Christian sects as the Greek
Orthodox, the Baptists and the
Armenians, remains a puzzle
to those of us who are living in
free democracies.
Russian Jews cannot even
formally protest against such
treatment. Only an indirect
protest, such as the presence
of thousands of Jewish young
men singing and dancing on
Simchat Torah in front of one
or two Moscow synagogues a
symbol of resentment of the
treatment of the Jewish
religion there, is permitted by
the authorities.
And so the fight for the
equal treatment of Judaism
with the other religions in the
USSR must mainly be carried
on from abroad, must be con-
ducted by the Jews of the
United States and the other
free democracies.
Thus we see that the strug-
gle for religious freedom on
the part of Jews and others in
various parts of the world has
not been completely won. In
several Latin American coun-
tries, Protestants are not per-
mitted by the authorities to
carry on missionary activities
in these overwhelmingly
Catholic lands. Even here in
the United States, where
religious toleration is fairly
widespread, some Christians
sects like the Old Amish and
Jehovah's Witnesses occa-
sionally complain of religious
discrimination against them by
governmental authorities and
the public generally.
We can only hope for the ar-
rival of a time in the near
future when both government
and the public will grant full
rights to all religious groups
who observe the elementary
decencies, the ethical prin-
ciples which are common to all
mankind, to worship God as
they please and to live the kind
of life which they believe that
God has ordained for them.
