Support for Israel
at Record High
By MITCHELL G. BARD
American support for Israel
in the latest Washington Post/
ABC News poll reached an
all-time high of 69 percent.
This is even higher than the
level of support in the heady
days following the Six-Day
War when everyone seemed to
love Israel (the figure then was
56 percent). This finding
demonstrates once again to
Israel's critics, who pounce on
any downturn in public opinion
for evidence that Americans
are turning against Israel, that
such declines are invariably
temporary responses to nega-
tive events. It also shows that
American support for Israel
has not eroded as a result of
This result is more meaning-
ful than most because it repre-
sents the most consistently
measured index of public atti-
tudes toward the Middle East.
Given the more than 20 years
that the question has been
asked, it is safe to say that it
provides a reliable picture of
the long-term depth of support
Israel enjoys among Ameri-
What is also striking about
the data is how little support
exists for the Arab states (16
percent). Despite all the
media-hype about public atti-
tudes shifting toward the
Arabs in general and the
Palestinians in particular,
Israel continues to enjoy a
more than 4-to-l advantage
over the Arab states in the
hearts of Americans. When
asked if they sympathize more
with Israel or the Palestinians,
Israel was favored by 63 per-
cent of the respondents, nearly
three times the figure for the
Two other questions indicate
that support for Israel remains
solid. One asked for impres-
sions of varoius countries 60
percent responded they had a
favorable opinion of Israel.
The second asked if Israel is a
reliable ally 51 percent said
yes. When asked if the United
States should strengthen its
ties with Israel, 89 percent
said they should be strength-
ened or kept the same (24
percent said strengthened),
the same figure as in January
1987, before the beginning of
On the question of foreign
aid, 66 percent said the level of
assistance to Israel should
remain the same. A majority
favored the current level even
when the question wording
was changed so that people
were informed that Israel
receives more aid $3 billion
than any other country.
Typically, when questions
include the cost of programs,
Americans believe that prob-

UJA Has Won Zionist Support
For "Passage To Freedom'- Drive
NEW YORK (JTA) The
United Jewish Appeal appears
to have won support for its
"Passage to Freedom" cam-
paign from sectors of the Zion-
ist establishment that had pre-
viously criticized the $75 mil-
lion special fund-raising effort
for Soviet Jewry.
The Jewish Agency Execu-
tive issued a statement after
its meeting in Washington,
affirming "its unqualified sup-
port" for the special UJA cam-
paign, "in the spirit of the
unity of the Jewish people."
The statement was signed by
Simcha Dinitz, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization-
Jewish Agency Executive, and
Mendel Kaplan, chairman of
the Jewish Agency Board of
Complaints had been echoed
by leaders in the American
Zionist movement that the

Midrasha Students To Perform In Honor Of Yom Hashoah
In honor of Yom Hashoah,
Holocaust Day, Temple
Israel's Shabbat services this
evening will include a special
dramatic program honoring
Jewish resistance. Performing
will be drama students from
Midrasha Judaic High School.
There was a strong Jewish
resistance. It included young
men and women who partici-
pated in uprisings in ghettos
and concentration camps.
Jews who joined underground
movements. Jews who knew
that certain death awaited
them, but who wanted to
demonstrate the courage of
the Jewish people, brave indi-
viduals who sacrificed their
lives to rescue other civilians
who disobeyed the laws of the
German authorities, or tried to
sabotage the goals of the final
solution. Struggling to stay
alive was a form of resistance.
Escaping from the ghetto or
hiding in a bunker was resis-
tance. A son or daughter who
stayed in a ghetto to care for
parents, or for the sick or
elderly, was a resistance figh-
ter. A child who, throughout
the war years, clung to his or
her dream of becoming a
writer, a doctor, a rabbi, a
teacher, was resisting the
Nazis. Resistance was giving
birth to a child in a ghetto,
sharing food with others, pray-
ing in a congregation, singing
in a chorus, studying the Bible
or Talmud, planting flowers in
the ghetto, keeping archives
and diaries under the shadow
Some of the resistance fight-
ers who will be dramatized in
the program will be: Janusz
Korczak, an educator and
writer of children's books who
directed a Jewish orphanage in
Warsaw for over thirty years.
Although he was exempted
from the deportation order
that sent children in his
orphanage to the death camps,
Korczak chose to go with
them. All the two hundred
children were prepared for the
journey, washed, dressed in
clean clothes, and given a
small bag with food and a flask
of water. In perfect order, in
total silence, they marched to
the deportation train, with
Korczak leading them.
Hannah Senesh was a high
spirited girl and a gifted poet-
ess. At eighteen she went to
Palestine and studied at the
Nahalal Agricultural School.
In 1943 Hannah joined the
gallant band of volunteers
from Palestine who para-
chuted into Nazi-occupied
Europe on rescue missions.
She was 23 when she was
captured by the Nazis. For five
months the Gestapo tried to
break her body and spirit.
They failed. Hannah was
secretly murdered on Novem-
ber 7, 1944.

dish diplomat is credited with

Yom Hashoa Remembrance
How ironic that while we observed Yom
Hashoa, Holocaust Remembrance Day, on
Tuesday, May 2, we were fresh from the
centenary of Adolf Hitler's birth.
Incredibly, in commemoration of that date
April 20, 1889 news reports brought us
face-to-face with a different kind of revision-
ism. Instead of the unfortunately routine news
that historians of questionable background are
attempting to rewrite the Holocaust or
prove that the Holocaust did not happen
there were some who wished to celebrate the
100th birthday of the architect of 20th century
Analogous reports from Germany, from
Brazil, from this nation's West Coast, suggest
that there are those Neo-Nazis whose refrain
is Once Again instead of Never Again.
It is now 44 years since the destruction of
the Reich that was to last 1,000 years. It is
also 44 years since the destruction of Eastern
European Jewish life.
There are those who see a distorted merit in
the observances of Hitler's centennial year. It
focuses our joint attention on the plagues of
many Hitlers: those who spout racist philo-
sophies and win legislative seats; those who
use a false pulpit to preach false faiths; and
those youths who see their bravado mirrored
across the land in Skinhead activities.
How meaningful that we can show our
collective strength while demonstrating our
collective anguish for the deaths of the Six
Israel's Labor Practices
For months, the general media was rife with
reports of alleged non-compliance by Israel in
regard to its labor practices. In the balance
was Israel's standing to continue receiving
special trade privileges under the GSP
Generalized System of Preferences.
The jury is in that Israel is, indeed, in
compliance. It should be no surprise, there-
fore, that the accuser was the American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination Committee-ADC. As a
petitioner charging violations of workers'
rights, the ADC attempted to rob Israel of its
ability to export goods to the United States
The salacious accusations were investigated
thoroughly; and the charges dismissed.
There were political ramifications in addi-
tion to those associated with encouraging
trade on the international market. Recogniz-
ing the administered territories as part of
Israel would have jeopardized the U.S. long-
standing policy toward the region. The U.S.
wisely would not be pushed into such a
Instead, the United States looked at the
facts pertaining to this special trade status
and reaffirmed that the State of Israel was
appropriately entitled to its GSP standing, an
entitlement we applaud.

bluntly asked me, "Why do the
Jews observe every year this
Yom Hashoah? Isn't that ob-

That was not an isolated
comment. One hears versions

president, died without a will. One wonders what Mary Lincoln thought when his
estate was divided into a third for her and a third for each of their two sons
one grown and the other only twelve years old.
All 50 states have blanket, all-purpose laws disposing of the property of any
person who dies without a will ("intestate," in legal jargon). As in Lincoln's time,
some still give only one-third to the widow, if there are children. Several other
states give her one-half. If there are not children, the widow may have to share
the estate with the parents of her husband. If no spouse or children survive,
state law rigidly determines one's heirs in other ways. (In nine states, the law
apportions a married couple's "community property," will or no will.)
Can the state legislature read your mind? Not likely. Instead, it's highly
possible the lack of a will can result in unhappiness and even financial distress
for those you care about. What's more, you'll lose other valuable rights: to name
your executor, to designate guardians for minor children, to avoid unnecessary
estate taxes, and to make bequests to cherished friends and institutions.
Sadly, the majority of people neglect to make a will. Yet, if the government
outlawed wills and insisted that all property pass according to strict rules,
Americans would be outraged at the loss of a privilege they take for granted.
Unbelievable? In some parts of the world, individuals have little say about the
disposition of their property at death. You have that right here, use it!
If you're considering a bequest to us, ask our representatives for ideas to
make it as meaningful as possible.

lems can be solved through
dialogue, so it is no surprise
that a large majority believe
Israel should talk to the PLO.
As has been the case in every
poll on the subject, however,
the response is contradicted by
the public's opinion of the
PLO. In this case, 81 percent
view the PLO unfavorably. In
addition, more than half
believe the Palestinians are
"to blame for the recent vio-
lence on the West Bank."
Perhaps the most revealing
finding in the survey was that
only eight percent of the
respondents are "very famil-
iar' with the conflict between
Israel and the Palestinians;
nearly half are unfamiliar.
Despite the media barrage and
the underlying assumption of
public interest, most
Americans are not particularly
interested or informed about
Middle East issues. It is,
nevertheless, evident that the
overwhelming majority sup-
port Israel and appreciate
U.S.-Israel ties. For the

Americans support for Israel

A Magical Place Called Israel
By LORI SCHULMAN
When Palm Beach County
and Israel connected last
month, sparks flew, bells
chimed and 125 people fell in
"The trip was beyond my
greatest expectations," said
Milton Gold, the trip leader.
"I had the most wonderful
time I could have imagined,"
Geraldine Zerden exclaimed
the day after she returned.
"I was on such a high during
the whole trip," Bob Goldberg
said, offering more accolades.
"It was the best time I've
ever had in Israel; it was really
a rare opportunity," Zelda
The Palm Beach/Israel Con-
nection left Miami at 7:30 a.m.
on March 29 and landed in Tel
Aviv ten hours later for a trip
that was unprecedented.
Never before had a group of
strangers, Jews and non-Jews,
elderly and young, experi-
enced and first-time visitors to
the Middle East joined
together from Palm Beach
County to demonstrate their,
solidarity with Israel.
"This was definitely the best
of the trips I've taken," Zelda
Schreiber said. She has visited
Israel twice before. "The Palm
Beach/Israel Connection had
everything to do with it; the
way it was organized gave it
such meaning. It was obvious
that the people we went with
really cared about the coun-
Mrs. Schreiber's original
goals for joining the tour were
to treat her daughter from
Brooklyn to her first Israel
trip ana visit a plaque that had
been erected at a nursery
school in Ein Kerem in mem-
ory of her late husband.
She achieved both and got an
eyeopener to boot. "It was
incredible to see what Israel
does for people: the schools,
the rehabilitative centers, the
absorption centers, hospitals,
youth centers. Israel does so
much and it is all very signifi-
cant," she explained.
The Palm Beach/Israel Con-
nection sponsored by the Jew-
ish Federation of Palm Beach
County filled three buses,
hired three guides, sent four
staff members and traveled for
twelve days to Jerusalem,
Tiberias, Tel Aviv, Haifa and
points in between. Basically,
people agreed, there were few
"The trip really met its pur-
pose," Milton Gold said. The
Golds were the initial impetus
behind the tour and they
helped coordinate it with the
Jewish Federation. After hav-
ing made 50 to 60 visits to the
Jewish state, Mr. Gold insisted
that it gets better every time.
As a well seasoned tourist and
life member of the General
Council of the World Zionist
Organization, Gold was able to
provide rare insight that few
people have had the opportu-
nity to experience. He said he
was most excited about the 92
people on the trip who had
never been there before.
"I think that everyone left
there with a very pleasant
feeling," Gold said. "As a
result of their Israel experi-
ence, we now have a lot of
people who will probably
become very involved with the
Jewish community here. That
was one of our major goals for
Geraldine Zerden's reputa-
tion preceeded her. She only
returned the day before the
Jewish Floridian contacted her
for comments on the trip, yet
the staff had already heard of
her endless vitality and stam-
ina, despite her handicap.
"I've always said, have cane
will travel," Mrs. Zerden
exclaimed. "In fact," she con-
tinued, "I just got back from
the doctor today and he told
me I don't ever have to use the
cane again. I'm healed." She
was thrilled. "I think the
Israeli air did it."
The last time Mrs. Zerden
visited Israel was 13 years
ago. "It was incredible to see
what they have accomplished
since then," she said. "So
much has been done."
After Israel she went to
Egypt and cruised down the
Nile for four days. "It was an
exciting experience," she said.
The food was good, the anti-
quities were amazing and a
camel almost went AWOL
with her in the saddle. "But I
can't wait to go back to Israel.
I felt I could live there and if
my husband were still alive we
would probably consider it, at
Bob Goldberg wants to go
back and teach Israeli children
for a few years. "I had never
considered doing something
like that before the trip, but I
really feel I have something to
offer that country. There is a
place for me there."
It was the visit to Hod Hash-
aron, Palm Beach County's
Project Renewal neighbor-
hood, that convinced him.
While the group participated
in the standard tour of the
neighborhoods, Mr. Goldberg
snuck into some classrooms
and sat in on a few lessons.
"It was wonderful," he said.
"There were about four teach-
ers for 18 students and they
were all excellent. I was so
inspired. Those children," he
continued, "are the future of
that country and I'd like to be
involved with them."
So there you have it, a sam-
pling of the unanimous rave
reviews participants have been
bestowing on the Palm Beach/
Israel Connection. It was an
experiment that worked and
succeeded in bringing this
Jewish community closer to
each other and to this magical
place called Israel. It's safe,
they all said; it's beautiful,
they agreed; and it feels like
home. The diagnosis is good
for future visits and there is a
good chance the Palm Beach/
Israel Connection will be going
again next year.

Holocaust where we attended a
Yizkor service at the Hall of
Remembrance and went through
the memorial to the one and half
million children killed where one
and half million lights were
reflected in memory and a voice
was calling out each child's name
very emotional. We then went to
the Israeli Military cemetary and
visited Golda Meier's grave left a
stone on It also a moving experi-
ence. We went back to the hotel,
dropped people off and proceeded
to area where Andy and I planted
trees in memory of our parents.
Had lovely Shabbat dinner at 6:30
p.m. There were two singers and we
danced around the dining room.
Morris did the "Birkat" and had a

how to do it properly. We all had a
lot of fun.
DAY 11 SATURDAY (4/8) -
WHAT A DAY! Had a very early
breakfast buses left at 7:30 a.m.
for Masada. Arrived at Masada an
hour and a half later and because of
one cable car not working, line was
very, very long. Laughed ourselves
silly and time seemed to go very
fast (2 hours). When we were almost
ready to go onto the cable car, Andy
"chickened'' out and decided to go
back to the bus, not knowing the
buses had gone to trie other side of
the mountain! We toured the top of
Masada and walked down the other
side of the mountain and lost Andy
somewhere. We then drove to a
restaurant for lunch and tried to
determine whether Andy was still
waiting for us at Masada or if he
had hitched a ride on another bus to
Jerusalem. After lunch, the bus
driver got a call on his CB that Andy
was still waiting at Masada and we
went back and picked him up
poor Andy was gone for hours and
was so tired and we all cheered and
clapped when he got back on the
bus. We then proceeded to the Dead
Sea where Andy and I went in up to
our ankles and took pictures and
then left to go back to the hotel
by this time we were all dirty and
hungry. Made up to meet at 7:45
p.m. for dinner.
Went to an Italian restaurant for
dinner (10 people) food wasn't bad.
DAY 12 SUNDAY (4/) -
Spent all morning shopping on Ben
Yehuda Street everybody bought
all their souvenirs. Returned to
hotel to relax before banquet dinner
at 7:30 p.m. bags had to be out of
room before dinner because we
were going to airport from dinner for
a 1:00 a.m. flight. Went to dinner
and Ronni had prepared a song for
the staff members to sing and ever-
yone got a big kick out of it and
Left on buses at 10:30 p.m. and
arrived at Ben Gurion airport in Tel
Aviv at 11:00 p.m. Thousands of
people and mass confusion ever-
yone was merging into one line to
be checked for security which took
hours. After security, hurried
upstairs to have passports stamped
to take shuttle to El Al plane.
Arrived at Kennedy around 7:00 a.m.
and customs went beautifully.
Arrived in Miami at 6:00 p.m. and
luggage and bus was waiting for us.
Drove to Airport Hilton, got our car
and after going home, Stacey called
and told us we took one of her
pieces of luggage by mistake
WHAT A DAY!
DAY IS SUMMARY
We had a magnificent trip this
was our first trip to Israel and I don't
believe we could have seen or done
anything more on any other trip
we met fantastic people and have
been keeping In touch with each
other. The spirit of the people In
Israel is unbelievable and It's no
wonder that they have accom-
plished so much in so little time.
Our tour guide was wonderful and
had as fantastic sense of humor
and made the trip most enjoyable.

Synopsis Of The
Weekly Torah Portion
. "Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment,
in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. Just
balances, just weights shall ye have"
KEDOSHIM "Ye shall be holy; for I the Lord
your God am holy. Ye shall fear every man his
mother, and his father, and ye shall keep My
sabbaths .. Turn ye not unto the idols .. And
when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt
not wholly reap the corner of thy field neither
shalt thou gather the fallen fruit of thy vineyard;
thou shalt leave them for the poor and the
stranger. ... Ye shall not steal; neither shall ye deal falsely, nor
lie one to another. And ye shall not swear by My name falsely....
Thou shalt not oppress thy neighbor, nor rob him; the wages of a
hired servant shall not abide with thee all night until morning.
Thou shalt not curse the deal, nor put a stumbling-block before
the blind. ... Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment. ...
Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer neither shalt
thou stand idly by the blood of thy neighbor. Thou shalt love
thy neighbor as thyself (Leviticus 19.1-18). "Ye shall be holy unto
me; for I the Lord am holy, and have set you apart from the
peoples, that ye should be Mine" (Leviticus 90.t6).
