Baker Says Israel Must Take
Next Step Towards Peace
Secretary of State James
Baker said that the United
States has done all it can to
advance the peace process in
the Middle East, and that it is
now up to Israel to take the
next step.
"We've really done pretty
much all we can do, we think,
from our end, and we are
awaiting a response from the
Israeli government," Baker
told a House Appropriations
subcommittee hearing.

To Move Forward

eminent umbrella organization

Secretary of State James
Baker "is deserving of a
response shortly," Seymour
Reich, chairman of the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions, told reporters before the
opening of the conference's
annual meeting.
He was referring to the Bush
administration's reported fru-
stration with Israel's inability
so far to agree on the terms for
an Israeli-Palestinian dialogue.
Reich acknowledged in a tel-
evision interview that Baker
had set a deadline for progress
in the Middle East, after which
he would turn his attention

are very critical," he said, add-

Sharansky Assails
NJCRAC Resolution
Soviet Jewry activist Natan
Sharansky denounced a resolu-
tion adopted by leaders of Jew-
ish communities across the
United States that warned
Israel not to settle Soviet Jews
in the West Bank.
A Jewish group should not
be highlighting an issue that
"simply doesn't exist," Shar-
ansky contended, citing Israeli
government statistics that
show only a tiny fraction of
Soviet immigrants choosing to
settle in the administered ter-
He spoke of his dismay at the
216-207 vote on the matter at
the National Jewish Commun-
ity Relations Advisory Coun-
cil's plenary in Phoenix, saving
that a Jewish group should not
be highlighting an issue that
has been overblown in the
news media.
Sharansky spoke, along with
a number of fellow Soviet
Jewry activists and recent
emigres, at the annual Israel
seminar of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Natan Sharansky
Jewish Organizations.
"Either you take the posi-
tion of wanting to find out the
truth, or you are concerned
about what the non-Jews will
think," Sharansky said of the
NJCRAC vote.
Both Sharansky and the
recent arrivals from the Soviet
Union related the now-familiar
stories of panic among Jews
there about recent threats of
anti-Semitic violence from
ultranationalist groups.
Israel's four top ministers,
known as the Forum of Four,
met to decide how to respond
to Baker's intention of holding
a trilateral meeting with Israel
and Egypt as the next step in
the process.
Baker's remarks came a day
after John Kelly, assistant
secretary of state for Near
Eastern and South Asian
affairs, told Congress he
expects such a meeting to
occur within the month.
Earlier, another State
Department Middle East
expert questioned whether
Israel and the Palestinians are
committed to making the
tough choices needed to adv-
ance current peace efforts.
"In our view, the question
right now is essentially
whether the parties them-
selves have the "political will to
continue in the process," said
Peter Eicher, deputy director
of the department's Office of
Egyptian Affairs.
Eicher, who is in touch with
Egypt, the main diplomatic
channel between the Palestini-
ans and the United States,
spoke at a panel discussion on
"Palestine: The Peace Pro-
cess," sponsored by the
National Association of Arab
The Bush administration is
on the "verge" of receiving
decisions from Egypt and
Israel on whether to attend a
trilateral meeting with Baker,
said Eicher. That meeting
would pave the way for the
first Palestinian-Israeli talks
to take place.
The United States has
devised "a simple agenda" for
Palestinian-Israeli talks
"which focuses on elections
and practical progress but
which allows each side the
opportunity to state its views
on the entire range of issues
with which the parties may
have to be dealing," Eicher

Arab Call To Curb Aliyah Condemned
Three world Jewish leaders

states to curtail immigration

here as the Arab Cooperation
Council prepared to meet the
in Amman, to adopt "a series
of practical measures" against
Soviet immigration to Israel.
Reports from Amman said
that the council agreed to con-

Jordan, which hosted the
meeting, has expressed conc-
ern that Israel intends to move
masses of Soviet Jews into the
West Bank, forcing Palestini-
ans into Jordan, where more
than half the population
already is Palestinian.
Many right-wing Israelis
insist that Jordan is, in fact,
the Palestinian state.
Two ministers of Israel's
Labor Party proposed at the
weekly Cabinet meeting Sun-
day that Israel offer assur-
ances to Jordan.
"Israel should declare pub-
licly and officially that she
does not intend to direct immi-
grants to the territories and
that she respects Jordan's
independence," Education
Minister Yitzhak Navon and
Mordechai Gur, a minister
without portfolio, declared in a
The statement condemning
the Arab campaign against
Soviet aliyah was signed by
Edgar Bronfman, president of
the World Jewish Congress;
Seymour Reich, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
Organizations; and Simcha
Dinitz, chairman of the Jewish
Agency and World Zionist
Organization Executives.
U.S. Shelves Study of Settlements
Bush administration shelved a
secret U.S. study on the legal-
ity of Jewish settlements in
the West Bank two weeks
after it was launched, the Jeru-
salem Post reported.
Post correspondent David
Makovsky said the study was
ordered two weeks ago by
either National Security
Adviser Brent Scowcroft or
White House Chief of Staff
John Sununu.
It was killed by Secretary of
State James Baker, Makovsky
reported. He attributed his
information to "U.S. sources."
According to one version,
Baker acted to avoid greater
friction with Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, at a time the
United States is pressing
Israel for significant conces-
sions to start an Israeli-
Palestinian dialogue.
Another reason suggested
for the cancellation was that
Baker was unsure of the
results of the study.

Sabbath Of Remembrance
Anniversary of the murder in 1974 of
four young Jewish girls, killed while
attempting to escape from Damascus, will
be marked March 9-10 with a Sabbath of

Observance of this Shabbat Zachor calls
to mind the plight of the 4,000 who still live
under the oppressive regime in Syria. It is
the only Arab country which since 1948
never has allowed its Jewish citizens the
right to leave.

Soviet Rabbi Fears
'Classic' Anti-Semitism
ROME (JTA) The chief
rabbi of Moscow, Adolf Shay-
evitch, says his overriding fear
is the emergence of classic
Russian anti-Semitism in the
new atmosphere of openness
and freedom of expression in
the Soviet Union.
The pogromist spirit is
already abroad in the "abso-
lute impunity" with which the
fascist Pamyat group conducts
its anti- Jewish ranting amid
silence on the part of the
authorities, Shayevitch said in
an interview with the Moscow
correspondent of II Messag-
But a leading Jewish author-
ity on Eastern Europe is con-
vinced that while the fears of
Soviet Jews are understanda-
ble, there will be no pogroms
in the Soviet Union, because
neither the Red Army nor the
KGB would tolerate them.
That was the opinion Dr.
Stephen Roth, former head of
the Institute of Jewish Affairs
of the World Jewish Congress
in London, expressed in an
address to the national conven-
tion of the American Jewish
Congress in West Palm Beach.
Shayevitch was one of the
signatories on a letter to
Soviet President Mikhail Gor-
bachev denouncing Pamyat's
activities and urging Gorba-
chev to use his full powers to

Sign Of New Understanding

Volume 16

Number 5
ders of the Polish Catholic
episcopacy and of the Solidar-
ity-lea government in Poland
have begun digging the ground
on which the new Carmelite
convent will be built during the
coming months.
Convent will be the first
structure to be constructed as
part of the interreligious cen-
ter for dialogue and study that
was agreed upon by European
Jewish leaders and four
Catholic cardinals meeting in
Geneva in February 1987.
In the face of the swirling
controversy and understanda-
ble anger throughout much of
the world Jewish community,
it must be recorded as a mat-
ter of historic record that the
present achievement is the
result of five years of difficult
but patient and tempered
negotiations involving key
European, American and
Israeli Jewish leaders, the Pol-
ish Catholic hierarchy, and the
new Polish government.
Central to moving this deci-
sive issue forward to a con-
structive resolution were peo-
ple of such stature as Sir Sig-
mund Sternberg of London,
Theo Klein of Paris, Tullia
Zevi of Rome and the Interna-
tional Jewish Committee for
Interreligious Consultations,
headquartered in New York
and Geneva. Certainly several
of the responsible demonstra-
tions by Belgian Jewish groups
and WIZO helped dramatize
Jewish concerns.
Those of us who were
involved in week-to-week con-
versations with Polish author-
ities knew as long as eight
months ago that all the ele-
ments were present then for
the current action. It was a
matter of money (in Poland,
even the Church is poor and
had to raise money from other
Catholic sources), land title
purchases, architects' plans
and finding productive wor-
kers before the present move
could be made.
"Shreiying gevalt" and
threatening lawsuits, many of
us believed, could only inhibit
the present action, not adv-
ance it.
Polish Prime Minister
Tadeusz Mazowiecki said in
London that he not only sup-
ported actively the decision to
move the Auschwitz convent
to a new site, but made two
other commitments:
First, he said that diplomatic
relations between Poland and
Israel would be resumed.
Second, he has set up an inter-
national commission of Poles
and world Jewry to redesign
the museum at Auschwitz, "to
do justice to the tragedy of the
Jewish people" and the other
If all parties manage to
behave in a serious, responsi-
ble manner during the coming
months and not seize on
Auschwitz as an occasion for
personal and/or institutional
publicity we may finally be
able to honor and do justice to
the memory of the 6 million
Jewish martyrs whose tragedy
has been denied or distorted in
Poland for more than 40 years.

Human Rights Advocate Helps Homeless Pets
Arthur Teitelbaum Pampers Pooches On Weekend
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
It's a doggone shame, but somebody
had to let the cat out of the bag.
There's a side of Arthur Teitelbaum
that not everyone knows, that adds
another dimension to the eloquent-
spoken human rights expert who has
long led the southern region Anti-
Defamation League from nis Miami
Every weekend for the past two
years, Teitelbaum has headed south of
Cutler Ridge to the Adopt-A-Pet ken-
nel, where he helps in the non-profit
organization's pursuit to find good
homes for abandoned or "rescued"
dogs and cats.
Although his love for pets dates back
to a childhood full of pets such as a
Rhodesian Ridgeback, Akita, Great
Dane and Springer Spaniel, it's inter-
esting to compare his present weekend
charitable work to nis suit-and-tie
weekday profession.
As a tireless proponent of prejudice
reduction and crusader against religi-
ous persecution, Teitelbaum has often
worked to tame some of the harsher
moral attitudes displayed by humans.
So listen to what he says he does at
Adopt-A-Pet. "I train and try to social-
ize dogs, particularly those that may be
either aggressive or fearful, so that
they can be adopted with confidence."
Sometimes his good intentions are
repaid by a dog bite. But for the most
part, Teitelbaum says he finds his
volunteer efforts very rewarding.
"The happiness that one sees in the
families who adopt dogs out of the
kennel is a source of great pleasure,"
he contends.
"Socializing a fearful or aggressive
dog so that he's capable of being
adopted is a source of satisfaction."
Because this particular kennel does
not like to practice euthanasia, some-
times dogs and cats are housed there
for months and even years.
There are about 70 dogs and cats in
the kennel, and they arrive in a variety
of ways. Some are brought in by
volunteers such as Teitelbaum, some-
times owners have to give pets up for
one reason or another, occasionally
some are released to their custody by
Animal Control and a few are simply
dropped over the fence in the middle of
the night.
Adopt-A-Pet, through funds raised
by private donors, pays for roughly
3,000 pounds of pet food a month,
spaying and neutering, shelter, shots
and medical attention.
They are certified to be in healthy
condition by the time they are released
from the shelter.
If there is a distressing aspect of the
job, it is seeing cases of animal abuse
and knowing that some 20,000 dogs a
year are put to sleep in Dade County
because they have not had responsible
owners or were results of irresponsible
It would seem to tug on his heart

Areas Tells Genscher
Israel No Longer Opposes German Reunification
BONN (JTA) Israel
appears to have done a sharp
about-face on the question of
German reunification, which it
strongly opposed only a few
months ago.
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens told Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich
Genscher at a meeting here
that Israel is no longer nega-
tive about uniting East and
West Germany, Israeli offi-
cials in Bonn said.
They said he told Genscher
that Israel has confidence in

Recall Guilt
ted Germany will have to
remember forever its collec-
tive guilt for the Holocaust,
the European Jewish Con-
gress declared in a resolution
adopted here.
German unification, rising
anti-Semitism in the Soviet
Union and the European Com-
munity's deteriorating rela-
tions with Israel were areas of
concern addressed by the EJC.
A two-day meeting was cal-
led to consider anti-Semitism
in various countries, in light of
the historic changes taking
place in Eastern Europe.
The EJC is the Western and
Eastern European branch of
the World Jewish Congress.
Its resolution on German unifi-
cation recalled the sufferings
of European Jewish commu-
nities at the hands of the Third
Reich and expressed concern
over the prospects of a united

forms of racism, anti-
Semitism, xenophobia and
exclusion be outlawed" in the

and its victims."
that have developed in the
Federal Republic over the past
40 years and is encouraged by
the broadening of the demo-
cratic base in East Germany.
Until fairly recently, Israeli
officials were speaking out
against possible reunification.
Perhaps the strongest state-
ment was made by Prime Min-
ister Yitzhak Shamir during
his visit to the United States in
Shamir said that when the
German people had been
united, "the great maiority" of
them "decided to kill millions
of Jewish people, and anybody
could think that if they will
have the opportunity again,
and they will be the strongest
country in Europe, they will
try to do it again."
Those remarks drew pro-
tests from Chancellor Helmut
Kohl, which led to an angry
exchange of letters with Sha-
The Israeli prime minister
wrote, among other things,
"We cannot forget the images
of the cheering crowds in the
'30s and what they produced.
We carry with us the memo-
ries of the Jews who were
massacred in the Holocaust."
Arens, on an official visit to
West Germany, met with
Genscher for 90 minutes.
The German foreign minis-
ter is reported to have told him
he opposes European Com-
munity sanctions against
Israel in the areas of trade and
scientific cooperation.
The sanctions were recom-
mended by the Parliament of
Europe, the E.C.'s legislative
body, to protest Israel's treat-
ment of the Palestinians in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip,
particularly the closure of
Palestinian schools in those
The sanctions were endorsed
by the E.C.'s Executive Com-
mission in Brussels last week.
According to Israeli and Ger-
man officials here, Genscher
said West Germany is opposed
in principle to sanctions as a
means to achieve political
ends. He promised to raise the
matter at the next meeting of
the E.C. Council of Ministers.
Arens reportedly stressed
that Israel would never sur-
render to sanctions and that
such measures by Europe
would only harm the peace
process and encourage Arab

The admission, made by
Energy Minister Moshe Sha-
hal during a question period in
the Knesset, was oblique. But
it clearly contradicted denials
by government officials,
including one made in Decem-
ber by Defense Minister Yitz-
hak Rabin, that Israel had any
contact with the Teheran
regime, which is considered a
bitter foe.
According to army radio,
Shahal, when questioned by
Likud Knesset member Ariel
Weinstein, said that Israel had
earned a $1.5 million profit on
the oil, although he was unwill-
ing to confirm the story, first
reported on NBC News.
Israeli government officials
had denied the American news
report, which said Israel had
paid Iran $36 million for two
million barrels of oil delivered
to Eilat in November.
Shahal was unwilling to sub-
stantiate the story because
Israel's policy is not to disclose
where it buys its oil.
Nevertheless, he was quoted
as telling Weinstein, "If you
refer to the oil shipment
referred to in the American
television report, Israel made
that profit, and the sum will be
transferred to the Treasury

Jewish Agency For Israel Seeks
To Block HIAS Moscow Office
Jewish Agency for Israel has
been actively seeking to keep
the Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society from opening an office
in Moscow, according to Sim-
cha Dinitz, chairman of the
Jewish Agency Executive.
A decision to take such
action was made by the Jewish
Agency Executive some weeks
ago, aides to Dinitz have dis-
Since then, Dinitz has
approached the Council of
Jewish Federations and vari-
ous other Jewish organizations
in North America, in an effort
to influence HIAS to forego
any plan to set up a Moscow
Dinitz believes that a HIAS
office in Moscow could trigger
a renewed spurt of interest by
Soviet Jews in immigration to
the United States.
The United States had been
the destination of choice for
the vast majority of Soviet
Jews prior to Oct. 1, when the
Bush administration changed
its policy on admitting refu-
gees to the United States.
Since then, it has refused to
consider Jews who leave the
Soviet Union on Israeli visas.

Soviet refugees now set at
50,000, the required American
visas are hard to come by.
Therefore, most Jews now
leaving the Soviet Union are
settling in Israel.
Under the old U.S. policy,
HIAS officials based in Vienna
and Rome assisted Jewish ref-
ugees who had arrived there
from the Soviet Union and
were interested in immigrat-
ing to the United States. Now
that such refugees must be
processed before they leave
the Soviet Union, HIAS wants
to set up an office in Moscow.
In New York, Karl Zuker-
man, executive vice president
of HIAS, strongly took issue
with the Jewish Agency's posi-
tion against the Moscow office.
HIAS is "not interested in
encouraging anybody to come
to the U.S.," he maintained.

Zukerman said he found it
"interesting that the Jewish
Agency Executive, which took
this decision several weeks
ago, has talked to all kinds of
organizations in the U.S., but
never to HIAS."
"If they had, we could have
explained to them exactly
what was going on, and their
concerns could have been
alleviated," he said.
Zukerman said that the
office HIAS hopes to set up in
Moscow would be designed in a
way that could not be possibly
construed as encouraging
Soviet Jews who might other-
wise go to Israel to hold out
hope that they would be per-
mitted to immigrate to the
United States.
The office, he said, would
only assist Soviet Jews who
had already overcome a major
hurdle toward being granted
refugee status and admission
to the United States: winning
an interview at the U.S.'
Embassy in Moscow.
Such an office would not
exclusively be occupied by
HIAS, but would be shared by
all voluntary organizations
that assist Soviets in their
immigration to the United
"The Department of State
has asked HIAS to run an
office on behalf of all the vol-
untary migratory agencies, to
assist persons who have
already applied to (immigrate
to) the United States and have
been scheduled for inter-
views," said Zukerman.
In any case, Soviet authorit-
ies so far have been opposed to
the plan and are "holding
strong in their refusals to
allow any of the voluntary
agencies into Moscow," said
Phillip Saperia, assistant exec-
utive vice president of HIAS.
The Soviets have a "a politi-
cal concern that they don't
view any citizen of the Soviet
Union as a refugee and they
don't want voluntary agencies

involved in processing people
from the Soviet Union as refu-
gees," he said.
Because the voluntary agen-
cies are denied access to Mos-
cow, the U.S. government and
Jewish federations are spend-
ing more on domestic resettle-
ment, Saperia said, since the
agencies cannot provide U.S.
communities with advance
information on refugees
destined to arrive there, such
as vocational, psychological,
social and medical histories.
To qualify for U.S. refugee
status, the Soviets must
demonstrate a "well-founded"
fear of persecution. Because
the number of would-be emi-
grants is astronomical, and the
number of refugee slots lim-
ited, the State Department is
giving preference to those
with immediate family already
in the United States.
Zukerman said that contrary
to the Jewish Agency's fears,
HIAS does not wish to send a
signal to Soviet Jews that
immigration to the United
States will become easier.
"We share (the Jewish
Agency's) concern that people
who do not have close family in
the United States not be
misled into thinking they will
be able to come to the United
States in the next several
years," he said.
The Jewish Agency's stand
against a HIAS presence in
Moscow is taking place amid
increasing Israeli resentment
of the money from American
Jewish philanthropy that goes
to HIAS and other agencies
handling resettlement of the
Soviet Jews in the United
Jewish Agency officials have
contended that substantial
funds should not be used for
the resettlement of Soviet
Jews in the United States at a
time when Israel is strapped
for funds for its own resettle-
ment effort.
Tension in the Jewish
Agency rose after reports
reached Israel from both
Washington and Moscow that
various Jewish groups had
begun lobbying the Bush
administration and Congress
to have the 50,000 ceiling
Secretary of State James
Baker has spoken of the possi-
bility of admitting approxi-
mately an additional 20,000
Soviets without government
funding, either under the
attorney general's parole
authority or under a proposed
law creating a new status of
JNF Returns To Budapest
Jewish National Fund has
returned to Budapest, follow-
ing a hiatus of some 50 years.
JNF, which first opened an
office in the Hungarian capital
80 years ago, came back to the
city on the Danube in mid-
February. Although it has not
yet been recognized as an offi-
cial organization, JNF will
function within the framework
of the Jewish Cultural Associa-
tion of Hungary.
JNF was active in Hungary
from its inception there in
1910 through the early 1940s.
A most successful event was held at Temple Israel of W. Palm
Beach on behalf of State of Israel Bonds. Daniel and Shirley
Forstein were presented with the Israel City of Peace Award at a
recent event held at Temple Israel of WPB on behalf of State of
Israel Bonds.
SynopaU Of The Weekly Torn* Portion
... "And thou sholt moke holy garments for Aaron they brother,
for splendour and far beauty"
(Exod. t8.t).
TETZAVEH Motes was told: "Thou shalt command the
children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure olive oil beaten
for the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually. In the tent of
meeting, without the veil which is before the testimony, Aaron
and his sons shall set it in order, to burn from evening to morning
before the Lord." For Aaron and his sons were to serve as priests
to God. The priestly garments are described in great detail, as
well as the various offerings that the priests were to bring on the
day of their anointment. lUs portion concludes with the laws
relating to the offering of incense on the altar.
(The recounting of the Weekly Portion of the Law Is extracted and
based upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by
P. Wollman-Tsamlr, pubhad by Shengokt. The volume Is available
at 45 Wast 46 Street, New York, NY 10036 (212) 2484011.)
Early indications are that
the U.S. government is hold-
ing potential Soviet immi-
grants to tough standards for
refugee status. In October and
November, two thirds of
Soviet Jews who applied for
U.S. refugee status m Moscow
were refused, said Saperia of
HIAS. He did not have any
updated figures.
