movement may be crushed in the
near future," Anatoly Khazanov,
who was permitted to emigrate
two months ago after a five-year
wait, told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency in an interview.
MEANWHILE, Edgar Bronf-
man, president of the World
Jewish Congress, arrived in
Moscow, a participant at the
World Conference meeting told
the JTA. Bronfman, who was in-
vited by the Soviet government
early this year, had planned a visit
last spring, but called it off
because of the death of Konstan-
tin Chernenko.
According to British historian
Martin Gilbert, who recently
visited the Soviet Union and at-
tended the World Conference
meeting, Bronfman went to
Moscow for a two-day visit. No
confirmation was obtainable from
the World Jewish Congress.
Bronfman's visit would come at
a time when the movement for
Soviet Jewry is urgently appeal-
ing to the Reagan Administration
to press the question of Jewish
emigration from Russia at Presi-
dent Reagan's upcoming meeting
with Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev. Delegates to the World
Conference meeting conferred
with Reagan last week.
KHAZANOV was one of the
signatories of a letter to Bronf-
man last spring outlining the con-
cerna of refuseniks. In
Washington for the World Con-
ference meeting, he said in his in-
terview with the JTA that he had
no idea "in what capacity" Bronf-
man went to Moscow.
At the same time, many of those
still waiting to emigrate have
taken the step of formulating
terms for an exit visa agreement
that they would like to see the Ad-
ministration present to the Soviet
Union. The suggested terms were
submitted to Gilbert, a professor
at Oxford who has been active in
the campaign for Soviet Jewish
emigration, when he visited the
Soviet Union last month.
"There the feeling is that the
Administration here must now be

significant need for an expand-
ed Jewish Community Center
facility to help provide for the
social, recreational, cultural,
creative and educational needs
of what is one of the fastest
growing Jewish communities
in the country. In order for us
to build and maintain such a
facility, we must settle for no
less than total community in-
volvement and we are en-
couraged by the responses to
this project which show
unanimous support. There are
presently long waiting lists for
every JCC program offered
and hundreds of requests for
programs that are not offered.
A new facility will help meet
these needs."
At the recent board of direc-
tors meeting of the Jewish
Community Center it was pro-
posed that the new facility be
constructed on a 28 acre site
located on Military Trail and
12th Street, about one mile
north of Okeechobee
Boulevard. The board of direc-
tors decided to offer for sale
the original 16 acre site on
Haverhill Road. The new
parcel of land is a gift from the
Robert D. Rapaport family of
Palm Beach.
The Jewish Community
Center and the Jewish Federa-
tion are presently engaged in
recruiting leadership from all
areas to nelp in the campaign
effort. As part of the total
community wide effort, the
services of Jay Epstein, direc-
tor of development and public
relations of the Joseph L.

been secured to help direct the

Ethiopian Olim Entering
Second Stage of Absorption
NEW YORK (JTA) Some 700 Ethiopian Jewish
families have now begun to enter the second stage of their ab-
sorption process in Israel and will by Febraury be in permanent
housing accommodations outside the absorption centers, accor-
ding to a senior Israeli official involved in Ethiopian absorption.
The official described this development as one of substantial
significance inasmuch as "most of the families are still in absorp-
tion centers" since having arrived in Israel after fleeing their
homes in Ethiopia in past years. More than 2,000 families remain
in at least 30 absorption centers used exclusively for newly-
arrived Ethiopian Jews.
"Perhaps the best proof that Ethiopians are being well absorb-
ed in Israel is that they already know where they want to go and
where they want to live," said Chaim Aron, head of the immigra-
tion and absorption department of the Jewish Agency and the
Aron spoke with reporters during a breakfast briefing recently
on recent developments in the Ethiopian Jewry absorption pro-
cess, sponsored by the United Jewish Appeal and the Israel
Aliya Center of North America. Aron was in the U.S. having at-
tended the recently concluded two-day meeting in Washington
of the International Council of the World Conference on Soviet
The second stage of the absorption process includes moving to
permanent housing which is expected to be located in areas
around the central cities such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa.
The first stage includes training in skills, languages, medical
care and the establishment of household possessions. There are
also some 2,000 Ethiopian teenagers living in Youth Aliyah
villages located across Israel.
Rabbis Rally Against Kahane
WASHINGTON (JTA) Representatives of Jewish
organizations converged outside the National Press Club
building recently in demonstrations against Rabbi Meir Kahane,
who was preparing to address journalists at a press luncheon in-
side the meeting.
Carrying placards that read, "Kahane Does Not Speak for
Me" and "Zionism: Yes, Kahane: No," some 25 demonstrators
from the Washington Board of Rabbis, which represents mostly
Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist rabbis in the
metropolitan area, appeared at the protest with a prepared
statement calling Kahane's ideas "antithetical to the essence of
"As religious leaders of the Jewish community, we reject
Rabbi Kahane as a spokesman for our community and affirm

whether it comes from the extremist Kahane, Prime Minister

Klaus Barbie Trial
Postponed to Early Next Year
Bomb Blast Investigated
Alleged Nazi War Criminals Targeted
PARIS (JTA) The trial
of Klaus Barbie, supposed to
have opened last spring and
then rescheduled for
November, has been postpon-
ed to early next year. The pro-
secution says a new investiga-
tion is required because some
documents recently found in
the State archives differ from
documents supplied by Nazi-
hunter Serge Klarsfeld.
Barbie's lawyer, Jacques
Verges, who has promised a
fierce fight on behalf of his
client, said there were
discrepancies between the list
of names of Jewish deportees
in the Klarsfeld documents
and those in the archives. The
key list is that of Jews
deported on August 11, 1944
aboard the last "death train"
to leave Lyon.
Barbie, whose activities as
Gestapo chief in Lyon during
World War II earned him the
sobriquet "Butcher of Lyon,"
faces charges on three counts
of "crimes against humanity."
These include deportation of
650 Jews on August 11, 1944;
the arrest and deportation of
86 members of the Lyon Com-
mittee of French Jews on
February 9, 1943; and the
April 6, 1944 arrest and depor-
tation of two Jewish teachers
and 52 children who were hid-
den by their parents in a
Jewish orphanage in Izieu.
In the latter case, Barbie is
charged with "kidnapping
minors followed by death," il-
legal detention and complicity
in murder.
The investigating
magistrate, Christian Riss, has
dismissed charges which fall
under the statute of limita-
tions. Thus, war crimes cannot
be prosecuted 20 years after
the events. Crimes against
humanity are not covered by
the statute of limitations.
The newly discovered
documents will have to be sub-
mitted to all parties to the
case, including hundreds of
groups and associations which
have filed civil actions against
The former SS officer, now
72, has been in custody since
early 1983. He escaped from
Europe shortly after the war
when he was sentenced to
death in absentia by a French
court. He found haven in
Bolivia where he prospered
under the alias, Klaus Altman.
He was expelled in 1983,
^ after Bolivia's ruling rightw-
Klaus Barbie
ing military junta was over-
thrown, and handed over to
French authorities. He has
since been incarcerated in the
same Lyon prison where his
victims were confined, inter-
rogated and tortured by the
Gestapo while they awaited
deportation, usually to
His victims were not only
Jews but members of the
French resistance. Barbie is
held responsible for the
murder of Jean Moulin, a
resistance leader. His pending
trial is expected to have
political repercussions.
It probably will coincide with
France's parliamentary elec-
tions to be held next spring or
early summer.
Barbie is being held in isola-
tion. His jailers say he spends
his time reading. He and his
lawyers have protested
vigorously against a govern-
ment plan to install him in a
bullet-proof glass box during
the trial.
His Gestapo cohort, Adolf
Eichmann, was similarly pro-
tected during his trial in
Jerusalem in 1961. Barbie's
lawyer has told Justice
Minister Robert Badinter,
"We will never agree to a cir-
cus atmosphere."
Israel Ambassador Says
Siliconize Northern Israel
future of northern Israel lies in
advanced technological
development, according to
Binvamin Netanyahu, Israel's
Ambassador to the United Na-
tions. The area has few natural
resources and Israel, like
Japan, must fully develop its
human resources, he declared
in an address to the American
Friends of Haifa University
here recently at the Friars
Haifa University, Israel's
newest institution of higher
education and the only liberal
arts college in northern Israel,
is particularly important to
this end, he said.
Netanyahu used the term
"siliconization" to describe his
vision of northern Israel as a
counterpart of California's
"silicon valley" where
microchips and other advanced
electronic components are
developed and manufactured.
He noted that the region is
presently underpopulated by
Jews and is the home of 70 per-
cent of Israel's Arab citizens.
But, according to
Netanyahu, it is a secure
region. "I guarantee that
there is no threat to northern
Israel," he said.
Netanyahu, who is marking
his first anniversary as Israel's
envoy to the world organiza-
tion, said that although the UN
has become a forum for
"everyday slander and
vituperation" against Israel, it
is important that the Jewish
State remain in the world
body. For one thing UN
membership lends a country
international legitimacy. For
another, the UN offers Israel
links with African, some Arab
and other countries with which
it has no formal diplomatic
relations, the Ambassador
Federal and local police
authorities are continuing
their investigation of a bomb
blast outside the front door of
the Long Island home of
Elmars Sprogis, a 70-year-old
former Latvian policeman
once accused by the govern-
ment of Nazi war crimes.
While Sprogis and his wife
escaped injury, a passerby,
23-year-old Robert Seifreid,
was seriously injured. Seifreid
had gone to the front door of
the home to alert the couple
that it was on fire. He ap-
parently set off the blast when
he kicked a small object as he
was leading the couple out the
door of the home.
Following the explosion, the
Long Island newspaper News-
day received a phone call in
which a male voice said,
"Listen carefully. Jewish
Defense League. Nazi war
criminal. Bomb. Never again."
The message sounded, accor-
ding to Newsday reports, as if
it had been taped.
The blast outside Sprogis'
home was similar to that which
occurred last month outside
the Paterson, New Jersey
home of Tscherim Soobzokov,
a 61-year-old former member
of the Nazi SS. Soobzokov,
who was seriously injured by a
bomb blast when he emereed

JERUSALEM (JTA) President Chaim Herzog has
granted clemency to Uri Maier, a member of the Jewish terrorist
underground in the West Bank, who was serving a 30-month
sentence. He was immediately released from jail.
Maier underwent spinal surgery recently and his medical
condition was the primary factor in the decision to grant him ".' ,YAF'CS!*>g nis aamira-

press conference that there

The Secretary, who had
headed the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget and was
Secretary of Labor in the Nix-
on Administration, noted that
"it used to be that I thought
economics was important." He
added, "It's a new day."
After all, as Shultz pointed
out, he had just announced
that Israel is to receive im-
mediately half of the $750
million in supplementary
economic aid for the 1985
fiscal year. He also praised
Premier Shimon Peres, Modai
and their Cabinet colleagues
by expressing his "admira-
dation Herzog acted, made it clear that this case will not set a
precedent nor does it indicate any change in policy toward the
Jewish underground.
Maier is the first of the more than 20 members of the
underground serving sentences for crimes of violence against
Arabs in the West Bank to receive clemency. He was convicted
for his role in the June, 1980 car-bomb attacks on three Arab
taken in Israefs austerity
"It is quite apparent that
they have taken strong and
necessary measures which I
believe as they are fully im-
plemented, will do a great deal
to return the economy of Israel
to the kind of stability and set
the groundwork for prosperity
that is perfectly capable" of
taking place in Israel, Shultz
He said the supplementary
appropriation is "designed to
be helpful at a time when the
government of Israel is taking
decisive and difficult measures
to help tide over in that period
so that the measures will have
a chance to operate in the
fullest way."
He said the U.S. will work
with Israel for long-term
economic gains "for I'm sure
that's when the real pay-off
comes in the growth and
economic prosperity."
Modai, thanking Shultz,
President Reagan and Con-
gress, said Israel's measures
are designed to put his country
back on "our own feet." Later,
speaking to reporters from the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
and The Washington Jewish
Week at the Israel Embassy,
Modai said there was still "a
lot to be done" in order to
stabilize the Israeli economy
and begin a period of growth.
Modai conceded that the
U.S. was correct earlier this
year in not being pleased by
the Israel government's
economic proposals "because
we did not have a comprehen-
sive plan." But, he added,
Now they are very pleased
with the plan and its im-
plementation up to this stage."

As outlined by Modai, the
plan calls for cutting the rate
of inflation and eventually
eliminating it, maintaining

Reconstructionist rabbi who
accompanied Eric Strom and
his family to Poland for the
first Bar Mitzvah celebration
in Cracow in some 35 years
recently described the visit
with mixed emotions.
"I think the experience had
lots of pain as well as joy," said
Rabbi Emily Korzenick, in a
telephone interview from her
home in Scarsdale, N.Y. While
visiting the remnants of the
once thriving Jewish communi-
ty of Cracow she said "we
were also seeing memorials to
that which was."
At the same time, Korzenick
appeared to brush aside the
significance of the dispute
which erupted among Or-
thodox rabbis here over the
prospects of having Korzenick
participate in services in an
Orthodox synagogue in
Cracow. "I had not come there
to make waves," she asserted.
Korzenick accompanied Eric
Strom on his journey to
Cracow for his Bar Mitzvah,
an idea that developed after a
visit here last April by a group
of Federation of Jewish
Philanthropies trustees and
leaders on a UJA-Federation
Campaign of New York trip.
While on that trip, an elderly
woman of the Cracow Jewish
community asked the Federa-
tion leaders to "Send us a Bar
Mitzvah. Send us life." Ar-
rangements were made, and
on Sept. 2, 13-year-old Eric,
his 9-year-old sister, Holly, his
parents, Barry and Margery
Strom, three of his four grand-
parents, Korzenick, and
Auschwitz survivor Edward
Blonder, departed for Poland.
There was some controversy
over the selection of the Remu
Synagogue in Cracow. The
Rabbinical Council of America
issued a statement saying "it
would be a betrayal of Jewish
history" if the Jews of Cracow
allowed a Reform or Conser-

meeting with Netanyahu, to
fight and strongly resist any
attempts to turn this
Assembly into an unruly anti-
Israeli arena. "This could
gravely harm the UN," the
Secretary reportedly said.
The first speaker, who open-
ed the "General Debate" of
the Assembly last week, was
President Reagan. King Hus-
sein of Jordan will address the
Assembly on September 27,
and Israeli Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir on October 2.
But some 90 other heads of
states and governments will
also address the Assembly dur-
ing a special Commemorative
Session, to mark the UN's
40th birthday, from October
14-24. This will be one of the
largest international gather-
ings of heads of states ever
held, with hundreds of behind-
the-scene contacts and ses-
sions of quiet diplomacy.

to address the Com-

scheduled meeting with
Reagan, Peres hopes to meet

Israel. He also hopes to meet

With all the guarded op-
timism of some diplomats that
the UN will not be "obsessed"
with Israel this year, the provi-
sional agenda of the 40th
General Assembly does not in-
dicate that trend.
Of 144 items, some 12 items
pertain to the Middle East,
most of which are or could be
related to Israel, including a
nuclear free zone, cooperation
between the UN and the Arab
League and financing UN
peace-keeping forces.
Most of the items concerning
Israel on the agendas of
previous Assemblies are found
here as well. Anti-Israel
resolutions are, therefore, ex-
pected to be adopted by the
General Assembly on items
such as the "Question of
Palestine" and "The Situation
in the Mideast" with a call
for total Israeli withdrawal
from the territories and the
establishment of a Palestinian
"Israeli Nuclear Arma-
ment" and the "Israeli Ag-
gression Against the Iraqi
Nuclear Installations" in 1981
are also on the agenda, for the
fifth time since the attack took
One of the agenda items
shows clearly the intentions of
the Arabs to assail Israel "at
any cost," as one observer
noted. Despite the fact that
Israel publicly announced that
its plan to construct a canal
between the Mediterranean
and the Dead Sea has been
cancelled, the Assembly has
nevertheless scheduled a
discussion on: "Israel's deci-
sion to link the Mediterranean
to the Dead Sea" (Item 81).
Apart from marking the
40th anniversary of the UN,
this General Assembly also
marks the 10th anniversary of
the infamous Assembly resolu-
tion equating Zionism with
racism. Will this Assembly
dredge up this resolution and
seek to inject it into its
Diplomats here say that they
are encouraged by the results
of the End of the Decade
Women's Conference in
Nairobi this summer where the
Arabs' attempt to inject this
resolution into the con-
ference's final document on
strategies to the year 2000
was defeated. "We hope this
trend will continue here,"
Netanyahu says, but is quick to
add that he will not be surpris-
ed if the Arabs will try to find
new grounds to defame Israel
and slur the Jewish people.
On the eve of the 40th ses-
sion of the General Assembly,
Netanyahu assesses Israel's
situation in the world
organization as being
"relatively better than it has
been for many years." He
points out, for instance, that
while in 1980, the Security
Council met at least 40 times
Tinst Israel, at the request
Arab countries, in 1984
there were only six Security
Council meetings concerning
Israel, and in 1985 only two

It Is Happening Here
Anyone who thinks that "it
can't happen here" should
take a look at the campaign
that is being waged to defeat
Congressman Mel Levine (D-
Calif.), a second term
representative from the Los
Angeles area. Levine is being
challenged by Rob Scribner, a
right-wing extremist who was
defeated by Levine in the 1984
Scribner announced his can-
didacy against Levine in an
amazing letter to 250
ministers in California.
Scribner, who is himself a
pastor, wrote that he has little
choice but to run against
Levine. He wrote: "A year
ago, G-d did a rather unique
thing He called on me to run
for Congress in California's
27th district."
The Almightly's alleged
decision to become involved in
California's 27th district Con-
gressional race is no surprise
to Scribner. For him, the cam-
paign against Levine is a
religious crusade. He told his
fellow ministers that defeating
Levine would "literally take
territory for our lord Jesus
It has not escaped Scribner's
attention that Mel Levine is
Jewish. On Aug. 8, he told the
Los Angeles Times that "ol>
viously, our Representative
(Levine) would be intolerant of
the beliefs I might have
because they're different than
his." But he claims that he
does not oppose Levine
because of the Congressman's
religious views but for his
political ones.
This does not square with
what Scribner wrote in his let-
ter to the pastors. In the letter
he said that Levine is
"diametrically opposed to
nearly everything the Lord's
Church stands for in this na-
tion." In his campaign
literature, Scribner says that
Levine rejects the "traditional
American belief in G-d."
As for Scribner's political
program, it is the standard far-
right agenda: opposition to
foreign aid and abortion, sup-
port for school prayer and the
death penalty. But Scribner
goes further than some others
who share his views. For him,
there is no room for disagree-
ment over these issues. To op-
pose the radical right's agenda
is, quite simply, to oppose G-d.
Accordingly it makes sense
that Scribner does not accept
the Constitutional principle of
church-state separation. As he
puts it, "nothing in our Con-
stitution says that there should
be a separation of church and
The startling thing is that
despite these views Rob
Scribner received 42 percent
of the vote against Levine in
the 1984 election when he was
the Republican candidate;
88,896 voters in sophisticated
southern California supported
Scribner although Levine won
with 116,933 votes. It's a little
frightening, especially when
one considers that Mel Levine
is far from the only member of
Congress being targeted by
the radical right.
But there is good news too.
Rob Scribner's views are being

Number 29
TEL AVIV Small-scale
attacks on individual Israelis
in the West Bank, Gaza Strip
and even behind the pre-1967
armistice lines signal a change
in the nature of PLO terrorism
not a change in the policies
of the organization itself.
According to sources within
Israel's military command for
the administered territories,
the destruction of the PLO's
infrastructure in Lebanon and
increased security along
Israel's northern border (part-
ly due to the security zone in
southernmost Lebanon) forced
the terrorists to shift attention
"to the eastern front" Jor-
dan and the West Bank. In ad-
dition, the fact that a
Jordanian-Israeli peace pro-
cess is under discussion
creates a deadly competition
among PLO factions for
headlines and "veto power"
over the peace process itself.
"After the Feb. 11 agree-
ment (between Yasir Arafat
and King Hussein) Jordanian
authorities allowed the PLO to
open offices in Amman," an
Israel Defense Forces (IDF)
officer told Near East Report.
However, to avoid a repeat of
the PLO's 1970 "Black
September" civil war against
Hussein, Jordan "did not allow
an armed infrastructure." But
with their presence in Amman,
only a few dozen miles across
the Jordan River's open
bridges from the West Bank,
PLO leaders enjoy easier ac-
cess to the local Palestinian
Arab population than they had
from headquarters in Beirut or
Instead of attempting to in-
filtrate groups of terrorists or
to launch rocket barrages
across the border at kibbutzim
and towns, the PLO command
in Jordan tries to impart
"general direction and inspira-
tion" to some West Bank and
Gaza residents, the IDF officer
explained. Fully half the cases
of terrorism and civil distur-
bance are now caused by local
inhabitants. Between April
1984 and April 1985, 397 in-
cidents took place, resulting in
eight Israelis killed and 10
wounded. Since then another
seven have been murdered by
terrorists most recently
reservist Avraham Sorek, 37,
stabbed while on patrol in
"No doubt the release of the
prisoners (Israel exchanged
more than 1,100 convicted ter-
rorists and suspects for three
Israeli prisoners-of-war earlier
this year) had some deleterious
effects on our deterrent
posture. It also probably per-
suaded some of the local in-
habitants there was a more
permissive atmosphere," the
officer said.
But the population of the ter-
ritories as a whole probably
has not been radicalized, he ad-
ded. "The majority of our in-
formation shows that most of
the population is dormant
even despairing" regarding
the possibility of achieving
Palestinian nationalist aims
through terrorism. Hence the
pressure on the PLO to grab
publicity by attacks on "point
Palestinian Arabs apparent-
ly still consider Arafat their
most important symbolic
leader, the source said. "But
at'the same time they unders-
tand that he no longer
possesses a military option as
they believed before Lebanon.
There is a sobering up. His in-
ability to dictate to the
residents because of the splits
in the PLO and the fact that he
does not possess the force he
did before allows many of
the (local) leaders to take a
slightly more independent
stand vis-a-vis the PLO."
In addition, he said, "a slight
pro-Jordanian gain" is seen in
statements and newspapers on
the West Bank and Gaza.
"Hussein has to watch his
legitimacy in the Arab world"
and not appear to be outflank-
ing the PLO, but "the question
is who really is going to lead
negotiations" with Israel. "I
think Hussein is moving
cautiously to the position
where he will call the shots."
The security situation would
be worse if the general Palesti-
nian Arab population was
more supportive of terrorism,
the IDF suspects, because of
the number of weapons believ-
ed to be concealed in the area.
As a rule they have not been
smuggled in by the PLO but
stolen from Jews or purchased
from Israeli gangsters. The
gap "indicates this (new ter-
rorism) is not a widespread
grassroots phenomenon." In
fact, while the small-scale at-
tacks and number of murders
have increased, the episodes of
large-scale civil disturbance
have declined.
Since the withdrawal from
Lebanon, Israel has bolstered
security personnel in the West
Bank and Gaza. "We've

Outreach Day To Encourage Friendship, Increase Awareness
On Wednesday, Oct. 9, at
eight different locations
throughout Palm Beach Coun-
ty, the Women's Division of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County will
simultaneously be extending
warm greetings to Jewish
women from all walks of life.
Lasting friendships will be
forged and information about
Women's Division activities
will be imparted.
This date will mark the first-
ever Outreach Day, an event
designed to "have women
meet their neighbors and meet
us from Federation in an
amiable, social atmosphere,"
according to Adele Simon,
Women's Division vice-
president for outreach.
Approximately 1,000 invita-
tions have been mailed inviting
non-involved Jewish women to
a coffee in their
"neighborhood," where a
hostess will serve
refreshments and where two
facilitators, active leaders in
Women's Division, will pre-
sent information and answer
questions about Federation ac-
tivities. Mrs. Simon further ex-
plained the role of the
facilitators by saying, "They
will serve as matchmakers bet-
ween the Federation and the
women attending."
Jeanne Glasser, who along
with Esther Szmukler is co-
chair of the inaugural event,
emphasized that Outreach Day
is not a fund-raising event.
"We simply want to emphasize
that Women's Division is open
to Jewish women from all
walks of life and in all corners
of Palm Beach County," she
"We hope to raise friends,
not money," reiterated Esther
Szmukler. "While making
friends with one another, we'd
also like to create a friendship
between the women attending
the coffees and the Federa-
tion. We'd like to share the ex-
citement and rewards that
we've gotten from working in
the Women's Division," she
Hosting the coffees on
Outreach Day will be Ina
Baron in the Palm Beach
Gardens/PGA National area;
Margot Brozost in Jupiter;
Florence Geller in the Button-
wood/Greenacres City area;
Esther Gruber at the Foun-
tains; Florence Kieff on
Singler Island; Judy Schimmel
in Wellington; Doris Singer in
North Palm Beach; Peggy
Vegosen in Palm Beach.
Emphasizing the "open
door" philosophy of Outreach
Day, Mrs. Simon noted that
the women attending the cof-
fees will be among the first to
hear about plans for this year's
Jewish Women's Assembly, to
be held on Nov. 24. That event,
a community-wide program, is
unique in that it is the single
largest educational project
held in Palm Beach County for
Jewish women. "Our hope is
that the women attending the
coffees on Oct. 9 will come to
the Jewish Women's
Assembly," said Mrs. Simon.
The women involved in
Outreach Day will have a third
opportunity to learn more
about the Jewish community
and Federation's role in it at
the Women's Division open
board meeting on March 5.
"Through this three-
pronged program of educa-
tion, we'd like to get more
women involved in the process
of sharing knowledge and
ideas," added Mrs. Simon.
The ultimate goal of
Outreach Day, as described by
co-chairs Glasser and
Szmukler, is "to inspire all our
new friends to work together
to build a strong Jewish com-
munity in Palm Beach

Rabbis Rally Against Kahane
Continued from Page 1
The rabbis were supported in their protest by the Jewish
Community Council of Greater Washington, which distributed
its own statement denouncing Kahane.
The statement by the rabbis, which culminated in a blowing
of the shofar as a symbol of the new Jewish year and of "eternal
Jewish values of equality and justice," was somewhat over
shadowed by the handful of demonstrators from lesbian, anti-
nuclear and other groups, who were shouting anti-Kahane
slogans nearby, as some 30 members of pro-Palestinian groups
prepared to begin their own demonstration which followed that
of the rabbis.

to some internationally recogniz-
ed timetable," Gilbert told the
DURING HIS two-week visit in
Moscow and Leningrad, Gilbert
held at least 20 separate meetings
with over 50 refuseniks, including
Galina Zelichenok, wife of
prisoner of conscience Roald
Zelichenok, and Ina Begun, whose
husband Iosef is also imprisoned.
Among the specific terms strong-
ly urged by the refuseniks, Gilbert
said, was the immediate granting
of exit visas to those in refusal for
10 years or more, with those
waiting five to 10 years being
allowed to leave by the end of
After that, emigration would be
managed according to a controlled
rate of exit visas for new ap-
plicants, up to an agreed-upon an-
nual limit. One group of
refuseniks suggested that the
West should propse 50,000 as an
annual maximum.
A timetable, possibly based on
the length of time already served
in prison, was suggested for the
POC's as was the immediate gran-
ting of exit visas to former POC's
who are still waiting to emigrate.
also suggested that a maximum
time period be set for the granting
of visas to someone who has held a
position regarded as security-
related. Gilbert presented the pro-
posed terms to the World Con-
ference meeting.
Only 29 Soviet Jews the
lowest number in years were
permitted to emigrate to Israel
last month. In June there were
four arrests of Jewish activists
the most in a single month since
the harassment of Jewish leaders
in the Soviet Union was stepped
up last year.
Reflecting on reasons why the
Soviets under Gorbachev have
disappointed so many who had
reluctantly hoped for an improve-
ment in the situation of Soviet
Jewry, Khazanov, a social an-
thropologist who will begin lectur-
ing at the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem this fall, had no pat
"I am not a professional politi-
cian. I became a refusenik against
my will and I prefer not to be in-
volved in all kinds of political
discussions," Khazanov said.
"The one thing I know for certain
is that if no drastic urgent
measures are undertaken on
behalf of Soviet Jewry if the
Soviets in one way or another will
not be persuaded that they should
change their attitude toward the
Soviet Jews, the refuseniks
then very sad things might be hap-
pening, not only to certain per-
sons, but to the movement in
SAYING HE had little grounds
fo- optimism, Khazanov was hard-
ly wide-eyed over some recent
gestures by Moscow toward Israel
and Soviet Jewry. These gestures
have included a meeting between
the Soviet and Israeli Am-
bassadors in Paris last summer
that was subsequently leaked to
the Israeli press, and the invita-
tion to Bronfman earlier this year.
The unreliability of single
gestures as an indicator of where
Soviet policy is going was
highlighted by Gilbert's visit to
the Soviet Union last month. The
official biographer of Winston
Churchill, Gilbert, who has also
written on the plight of Soviet
Jews, was invited there for a con-
ference by the Soviet Academy of
Sciences the same institution
that revoked Khazanov's member-
ship shortly after he applied to
emigrate to Israel.

Near East Report
Sam learned about
The GUARDIAN PLAN, program and
changed his mind about
buying cemetery property in Florida.
' Like your family. Sam's family also had strong traditions. One of those was
burial in the family cemetery property in New York. But now that he and his wife
have retired to Florida, he was led to believe that his family tradition was no
longer practical, even though he would prefer to have funeral services back
home. Sam was worried about the emotional burden on his family. And frankly,
he was worried about the cost.
Then a friend told him about The GUARDIAN PLAN, insurance funded
prearranged funeral program.* Here are the facts Sam got.
He learned he could have funeral services in New York at a very reasonable -
price He learned he could arrange all the details in advance and set the price
he could afford to pay for the services he wanted. And The GUARDIAN PLAN
program would guarantee the amount would never increase. He also learned he
could select RIVERSIDE or one of the other guardian family of lewish funeral

A Time To Partake Of The Bountiful Harvest
Since Sukkot, also called the Feast of the Ingathering, is
celebration of the earth's bountiful harvest, nurtured by
CjJ'b benevolence and the toil of human hands, it is a
festival intimately associated with food, which the Biblical
laws say should be eaten inside the sukkah, the temporary
Wiling which reminds us of the 40-year desert wander-
ngs of the ancient Hebrews who were seeking the Promis-
id Land.
To help our friends further enjoy the festive significance
Lf this holiday, upon which the Puritans patterned
Thanksgiving, we offer the following Sukkot recipes.
Whether you're providing sustenance to your family
.while decorating the snkkah or entertaining guests during
this week-long festival, sweets should be in ample supply.
Symbolically, sweet foods, such as the traditional apples
Ud honey, represent our hopes for a sweet, peaceful year
.ahead. Here are some baked confections which will please
Ithe palates of everyone.
I3 eggs (use 3 eggs whites, 1 yolk)
|l cup oil
|2 cups sugar
|l teaspoon vanilla
12 cups grated zucchini
11 teaspoon baking soda
lite teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons cinnamon
Ite cup nuts
|3 cups flour
In a mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, oil, sugar, and
ivanilla for 1 minute. Add the zucchini and mix it with the
lother ingredients. Combine the baking soda, baking
(powder, cinnamon, nuts, and flour. Mix well and then blend
linto the zucchini mixture. Pour into two greased 9"x3"x3"
Iloaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees F. until firm and golden
brown, about 1 hour. Let cool before removing from pans.
I Makes two loaves.
1 cup molasses
lte cups water
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup corn oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs whites, slightly beaten
12'/4 cups flour = '
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons cinnamon
In a large saucepan, combine the molasses, water, and
baking soda and brinjr to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Let cool.
In a bowl, mix together the corn oil, sugar, and egg
whites; add to the molasses mixture. In a large mixing
bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, ginger, and
cinnamon. To the dry ingredients, add the molasses mix-
ture. With an electric mixer, on low speed, beat for 2
minutes. Pour into a greased 8"x8"x2" pan. Bake at 375
degrees F. until firm, about 40 minutes. Makes 12 squares.
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
lte teaspoons baking powder
te teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
'/cup margarine
V cup orange juice
1 tablespoon orange rind
1 egg, beaten
"6 cup nuts (walnuts, pecans, filberts, or almonds), chopped
2 cups fresh cranberries, chopped
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking
soda, and salt. Cut in the margarine until particles the size
of small peas form. Add the remaining ingredients, blen-
ding well but not overmixing. Pour into a greased and
floured 9"x5" loaf pan, spreading the batter higher in the
corners and along the sides, since it has a tendency to
become very high in the middle. (This recipe can also be
doubled and baked in an angel-food pan.)
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or
until a straw or cake tester poked into the bread comes out
clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then
tum the bread out onto the rack and continue cooling. As
with most breads of this sort, it tastes better the second
Along these same sweet lines comes a novel idea which
"ay look too good to eat, a gingerbread sukkah.
j/3 cup vegetable shortening
cup light brown sugar
' cups molasses
f3 cup water
J cups flour
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
J teaspoon cinnamon
_^ teaspoon powdered ginger......
Blend the shortening, sugar, molasses, and water
together thoroughly. Add the remaining ingredients, mix-
ing well. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead
for a few minutes. The dough can be used immediately, but
it is easier to handle if it is wrapped tightly in plastic and
refrigerated overnight. Allow it to sit at room temperature
for 20 minutes before using.
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until 3/8"
thick. Cut it into one 7" square, two 7"x9" rectangles, and
one 7"x4" rectangle. The square is the back, the two large
rectangles sides, and the smaller rectangle is half the front,
allowing for a 3"-wide doorway. The sukkah will be 7"
high, 7" wide, and 9" deep.
Cut two arched windows into one of the sides, one arched
and one round window into the other side, and an arched
window into the front panel.
Place the pieces on lightly greased cookie sheets. Allow
space between the shapes, since the dough does spread.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees about 15 minutes.
Cool on the cookie sheets on a wirerack. When completely
cooled, assemble the sukkah, using your favorite frosting.
Lay pretzels across the top, attaching them to the side
panels with a little frosting. Ornament with candy spear-
mint leaves and anything else you can think of.
Because Sukkot celebrates the "plenty" of the harvest,
both stuffed and round foods are traditionally served as
main courses. Here are two relevant and delicious

pers with the mixture and place them in a large baking

45 minutes in a 400 degrees F. oven. Serves 8.
Variation: A meatless version is also delicious. Fill the
peppers with garbanzo beans and/or corn, pour over
tomato sauce, and bake as directed above. When peppers
are done, uncover the dish and top each pepper with a slice
of mozzarella cheese. Place under the broiler until cheese
melts, about 1 minute.

A Time For Joy
Temple Beth Zion
The festival of Succoth,
which lasts eight days, is
called Z'man Simchateinu,
the Season of our Joy, in the
liturgy, being the only
festival so designated.
_ The reason for this is as
follows: There are three
verses in the Torah enjoin-
ing the Israelites to rejoice
during the festival of Suc-
coth. There is only one verse
giving this injunction to re-
joice in connection with the
festival of Shavuoth, and no
reference to joy whatsoever
when the Bible refers to
Judaism recognizes the
natural instinct of joy and
makes no attempt to
repress it, but rather to en-
courage natural self-
expression, but there are
certain sects which affirm
that the true worship of G-d
can be achieved only
through deprivation and
rigid asceticism.
The Nazarite was com-
manded by the Scriptures to
bring a sin-offering when
the term of his Nazariteship
had lapsed, and the reason
given for this by Rabbi
Eleazer Hakafar was that
abstention from wine, which
the Nazarite vow involved,
was sinful. To draw away
Rabbi Seymour Friedman
from a natural instinct of

joyeth not what his eyes
have seen will have to
answer for it on High.
Once a Jew in great
tribulation came to the
Besht (Bal Shem Tov, the
founder of Hasidim) and in-
quired, "How many days
have I to fast to make atone-
ment for a grievous sin?"
The Besht replied, "Not
through fasting is the ire of
G-d averted, but through joy
of which the Psalms are h-
arbingers. Recite the
Psalms with inward rejoic-
ing, and you will be quit of
your sin."
The Besht held that it was
his aim and essence on earth
to show his brethren by liv-
ing demonstration how one
may serve G-d with merri-
ment and rejoicing. For he
who is full of joy is full of
love for men and all fellow
It was the genius of the
teaching of our Torah which
gave the inspiring message
that joy as a human instinct
is not proscribed,, but it
must not be allowed to run
wild so that it degenerates
into abandonment. The Bi-
ble enjoins us, V'somachto
lifnei hashem elochicho.
"And thou shalt rejoice
before the Lord thy G-d."
The presence of G-d must
be perceived in the midst of
rejoicing over the material
things of life. Succoth
became a vital commentary
on the art of enjoyment. The
Jew was taught through the
festival that real joy is a
blending of the material and
the spiritual.
Thus let us joyfully with
mirth and song greet this
happy festival as we partake
of food in the succah, carry
the Lulav and Ethrog about
the sanctuary and raise our
cups of wine, thankful for
G-d's many gifts bestowed
upon us.

had not prepared themselves
to confront the Orthodox rab-
bi, Nachum Elbaum, a New
York businessman and travel
agent, who along with an
unidentified cantor arrived in
Poland shortly before the Fri-
day evening services began.
Elbaum conducted Friday
night services, and the Satur-
day morning services. There is
no rabbi in Cracow.
Blonder, who served as a
translator on the visit, read
the Torah portion Saturday.
At the closing of the service,
Eric signalled for Korzenick to
come to the Bima as he was
preparing to recite his Haf-
torah portion, from Isaiah.
Korzenick had helped to train
Eric in his Haftorah portion.
Korzenick came down to the
Bima, she recalled, and had a
prayer shawl she was going to
place over her shoulders snat-
ched away by Elbaum. Eric's
grandfather, meanwhile, hand-
ed her another tallit. When she
began her commentary,
Elbaum said several times,
"But ladies cannot speak in
synagogue." Korzenick said
the elders in the synagogue did
not take up the chant.
In her English commentary,
Korzenick quoted Isaiah to the
effect that "violence shall no

public in spite of the cuts in
subsidies, the reduction of
government employees, higher
taxes on luxury items and the
travel tax which, he said,
reduced by half the number of
Israelis who went abroad this
summer as compared to the
summer of 1984.
Modai said Israel has just
about reached its goal for the
current fiscal year which
began April 1 of bringing the
rate of unemployment to 7.4
percent or 92,000 jobless. He
said the aim is to reduce
unemployment in the next
fiscal year.
The Finance Minister said he
did not believe higher
unemployment would con-
tribute to social unrest in
Israel. But he conceded it
might increase the number of
Israelis leaving the country.
He said this happened in 1980,
the last time unemployment
rose, but "after the situation
improved, many of them came
more be heard in the land, and
the sun shall no more go down.
Neither shall thy moon
withdraw itself, for the Lord
will be thy everlasting light,
and the days of mourning shall
be ended.'
But moreover, Korzenick,
spiritual leader of the
Fellowship of Jewish Learning
in Stamford, Conn., the
synagogue with which the
Strom family is affiliated,
asserted that the Bar Mitzvah
was an expression of Jewish
"oneness and concern."
She said "one thing I did see
was little tiny germs of
possibility for the future" of
Jewry in Cracow. She noted
that some 20 young Polish
Jews had attended the Bar
Mitzvah, and that some of the
elderly persons in the com-
munity have tried to increase
the study of Jewish and Yid-
dish culture.
She also said that during her
brief visit, which included a
show at the Yiddish Theater in
Warsaw, she felt that the
Polish government appeared
to be encouraging efforts by
the small Jewish community.
Some 15,000 Jews are
estimated to live in Poland.
Cracow's Jewish population
prior to the Holocaust was
some 60,000. It is now several
Korzenick explained that
Polish Jewry is not in a
desperate state. They have
chosen to stay, she said,
though many have family
elsewhere, including in Israel.
As for Eric, Korzenick said,
"He understood he was there
as a symbol of joy."
mercy airlift, sponsored by
the American Jewish World
Service (AJWS), left last week
with $750,000 worth of grave-
ly needed medical supplies to
drought and starvation-
ravaged Mozambique, accor-
ding to an AJWS announce-
ment here at a press
"In 1984 we estimated that
four million people of a popula-
tion of more than 12 million
were at risk of famine," ex-
plained AJWS president,
Larry Simon. "More than
100,000 people have died of
starvation in Mozqmbique in
the past year," he said of the
ailing country, reported by the
United Nations to be one of the
six African nations most
devastated by drought.
"Millions will die and it is
our fault," asserted Elie
Wiesel, chairman of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council
and a member of the AJWS
board. He pointed out that
"there is enough food and
medicine in this country to
help the sick and poor" in dis-
tant nations and "if they die,
we are guilty."
This mission, inspired by Dr.
Paul Epstein, a physician who
was the Chief of Medicine at
Central Hospital in Beira,
Mozambique in 1980, will be
the first major medical relief
effort of the AJWS.
Last January, when Epstein
returned to Mozambique after
a five-year absense, he noted
that "There were hospitals
and rural clinics that had no
medicines whatsoever. I spoke
with doctors who could do
nothing at all to help the peo-
ple they were treating ..
many of whom were dying."
In response to the emergen-
cy conditions in Mozambique,
the AJWS designed a twofold
project. Simon explained that
the chartered aircraft, donated
by the London-based Live-Aid
Foundation, was part of the
short-term plan that would
distribute the antibiotics, anti-
malarial and anti-parasitic
drugs, supplied primarily by
pharmaceutical firms, to as
many of the victims as
Simon emphasized that the
AJWS had worked in conjunc-
tion with the Ministry of
Health and UNICEF to assure
the speedy delivery most
likely within a matter of days
of the medicines, utilizing
various forms of transporta-
tion such as light aircraft,
truck convoy and boats.
The AJWS is also coor-
dinating a long-term develop-
ment project to meet Mozam-
bique's basic needs, including
the production of low cost
latrines to prevent con-
taminated water and plans for
two intravenous production
units will provide IVs for the
entire country within two
years. Simon also mentioned
the goal of creating an element
of self-sufficiency by working
on agricultural development
and incorporating women into
that development. He express-
ed the hope of preventing a
"recurring famine situation"
by building longer-term com-
munity projects.
Calvary Temple To Hold Special Celebration
A celebration sponsored
by the Calvary Temple
honoring the close rela-
tionship between the
TJ.S.A and Israel will be
held at the Hyatt Hotel in
West Palm Beach, 630
Clearwater Park Road, on
Wednesday, Oct. 2.
The festivities of the
evening will begin at 7:30.
Participating in this
evening will be represen-
tatives of the Israeli
government and our own
public officials, Bridges for
Peace and other Christian
organizations, along with
local churches. Lively
entertainment will be
presented by singing
groups, instrumentalists,
folk dancers and by
representatives of the
Palm Beach Ballet.
After the celebration
refreshments in keeping
with the Jewish traditions
will be served.
It will be an evening to
remember and the Jewish
community is urged to join
with the Calvary Temple
in this expression of love
to Israel!

American Dollars Bolster Israel's Foreign Currency Reserves
American Jews contribute to
UJA/Federation campaigns,
they directly meet
humanitarian needs in Israel
but also indirectly help all the
people of Israel as well.
One example of this is in
helping Israel build its foreign
currency reserves, a critical
basis of the country's economic
survival, but often glossed
over by Americans more
familiar with other economic
concepts such as inflation,
unemployment and balance of
trade. American Jews help
Israel solve its reserve pro-
blem simply by paying their
These reserves are moneys
from overseas, especially
dollars, that Israel needs to
purchase raw materials and
crude oil from abroad, which
comprise 92.5 percent of
Israel's overseas buying.
These imports make industrial
and agricultural production
and therefore exports possi-
ble, helping Israel improve its
balance of trade position.
While campaign dollars are
converted and spent as
Shekels by the Jewish Agency
and Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, the actual U.S. curren-
cy remains for a time in the
Israeli economy.
Uri Oren, an Israeli Consul
who becomes an assistant to
the Deputy Prime Minister
this month, said the presence
of these dollars has helped
stem a dangerous decline in
reserve levels. Last spring,
reserves dropped to barely $2
billion, long considered the
minimum to keep the economy
sound. Two years ago,
reserves were $3.5 billion.

Israel Enjoys Tourist Boom
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israel has enjoyed a boom in
tourism over the past 12 months and leaders of the industry are
confident they can repeat the success and do even better in the
year ahead.
They told a press conference here recently that a record
865,000 tourists visited Israel in the period January-July, a 19
percent increase over the same period last year. In the last 12
months, 1.5 million tourists came, representing $1.5 billion in
Rafi Farber, director general of the Ministry of Tourism, said
Israel could increase its tourist business without investing in a
larger infrastructure. He pointed out that there are now some
30,000 hotel rooms in the country which can accommodate more
than two million tourists a year. This means Israel can absorb an
additional 600,000 visitors without building more hotels.

Israel's Small Size Makes Attack
Possibilities Super-Dangerous
Because of Israel's small
size, even strategically im-
portant targets are within
close proximity to enemy
ground forces. This lack of
strategic depth transforms
long-range artillery and
short-range surface-to-
surface missiles, weapons
normally considered tac-
tical, into strategic weapons
able to reach many of
Israel's air bases. Equally
important, such weapons
can also attack surface-to-
air missile batteries, radars,
command posts, and other
facilities that protect the
airfield, thus endangering
the air defenses that protect
the air bases from air
Surface-to- surface missiles are
a threat of increasing concern to
Israel. Although Arab countries
have had such weapons since at
least 1907. it is only recently that
they have acquired surface-to-
surface missiles with the range,
accuracy, and lethality to destroy
hardened targets deep inside
Israel. The procurement of
weapons of this type, such as the
SS-21s supplied by the Soviet
Union to Syria in 1983, has pro-
vided Arab military forces with
new capabilities that pose a
serious threat to Israeli security.
DURING THE past twenty
years, the Soviet Union has sup-
plied Arab countries .with more
than 200 surface-to-surface
missile launchers that could be us-
ed against Israeli air bases, in-
cluding FROG-7, SCUD-B, and
SS-21 systems. These weapons
have sufficient range to reach
strategically important targets in-

fairs Committee.
side Israel. Until recently,
however, they posed only a
marginal threat to Israel's air
bases, despite the large inven-
tories. Older weapons, like the
FROG and SCUD-B missiles, had
limited accuracy and reliability, in
contrast to the significantly
greater capabilities of SS-21s
Developed to replace the
FROG-7, the SS-21 is one of a
family of new surface-to-surface
missiles that have entered service
with the Soviet armed forces dur-
ing the past few years. The larger
SS-23. which replaces the
SCUD-B, has not yet been sup-
plied to any Arab country, but un-
doubtedly wui be provided by the
end of the decade. Western of-
ficials believe that both the SS-21
and the SS-23 are capable of inflic-
ting serious damage to airfields.
Syria now has as many as 24
SS-21 missiles, and additional
numbers are reported to have
gone to Iraq. The 120 kilometer
range of the SS-21 allows it to be
used against targets too distant
for the FROG-7. When fired from
Syria, the SS-21 can reach only
one of Israel's large air bases,
Ramat David, though several
smaller airfields also could be at-
tacked. If deployed in Jordan,
however, every Israeli air base
could be brought within range.
Coupled with this longer range is
improved accuracy. The SS-21 is
reported by many sources to have
a CEP of about 800 meters at
maximum range.
The Artillery Threat to Israeli Air Bases
Ma|Or Air

A Bases
IN ADDITION, SS-21 missiles
are armed with warheads of
modem design believed to be
highly effective against airfields.
Besides a cluster bomb warhead,
it has been claimed that there is a
special warhead designed to
destroy runways. Even without
such a warhead, spelling of the
runway by SS-21 bomblets would
make runways too rough for jet
aircraft to use. According to a
U.S. Department of Defense
"The SS-21(s) ... are inxpen-
sive weapons that can be used to
destroy multimillion-dollar air
defense weapons, or more expen-
sive airfields loaded with fighters,
shops, spares and munitions using
conventional warheads. They
could be employed to pin down
NATO and U.S. air bases."
While it is unlikely that SS-21s
could totally incapacitate Israel's
well-protected air bases, they
could easily destroy anti-aircraft
defenses to ease the path of at-
tacking aircraft, damage runways
to prevent defending aircraft
from taking off to intercept at-
tackers, and destroy unprotected
facilities. If reports of an anti-
runway warhead for the SS-21 are
correct, then it is possible that the
missile could suppress runways
THUS, it appears that SS-21
missiles launched from sites in
Syria could inflict considerable
damage to runways at Ramat
David and other smaller airfields
and could destroy air defense
systems needed to protect the air
bases from air attack. These at-
tacks would be especially
dangerous if launched during the
first few minutes of a surprise of-
fensive. Syrian and Iraqi SS-21s
launched from Jordan could hit air
bases throughout Israel. Although
Arab inventories of the SS-21
missile are still relatively small,
Syria's existing stocks are pro-
bably sufficient to inflict serious
damage to several Israeli air
In addition to modern SS-21,
Arab armies continue to operate a
large number of older weapons
that would have some value in a
future conflict. Several Arab
countries operate the FROG-7, in-
cluding Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait,
Libya, and Syria. During the 1978
Arab-Israeli War, the Syrians
fired FROG-78 against Ramat
David and other Israeli air bases.
These FROGs were able to tem-
porarily prevent Israeli aircraft
from landing at one of the attack-
ed air strips. In addition, the
Egyptians reportedly fired
FROGs against Israeli air bases in
the Sinai. Little or no damage was
inflicted, and most of the
warheads landed at a distance
from the airfields.
Although FROG-78 can tem-
porarily prevent aircrafts from
taking off or landing, they pro-
bably cannot inflict substantial
damage to air base facilities.
First, the FROG-7 is extremely in-
accurate (CEP of 500 to 700
meters), making it unlikely that a
FROG-7 could accurately hit pro-
tected facilities at an Israeli air
base. Second, its 70 kilometer
range is so short that only two
Israeli airfieleds can be hit by
missiles fired from Syria. Finally,
its high explosive warhead was
not designed for use against pro-
tected targets, and probably can-
not inflict serious damage to
hardened facilities. Nevertheless
as was shown in the 1973 fighting]
the FROG can temporarily close
air bases, and Arab countries have
substantial inventories that would
allow large quantities to be fired.

be increased to 44 kilometers
when firing rocket assisted projec-
tiles. According to a recent
report, Iraq may have purchased
100 G-5 155mm guns from South
Africa. This weapon has a range
of 37.5 kilometers without use of
rocket-assisted ammunition.
The effectiveness of the ar-
tillery can be enhanced by the use
of new types of munitions. Guns
and howitzers now can fire im-
proved conventional munitions
(shells filled with bomblets) and
artillery-delivered mines are now
a reality. Thus, not only has the
lethality of artillery increased, but
it also has been improved by the
availability of new munitions that
could be of use in air base denial.
For example, anti-tank and anti-
personnel mines delivered by ar-
tillery could prevent aircraft from
using an airfield, and at the same
time inhibit efforts to repair run-
ways. While no Arab country cur-
rently has artillery-delivered
mines, it seems certain that they
will have such weapons by the ear-
ly 1990s.
Besides the tube artillery, Arab
countries have begun to acquire
rocket artillery in significant
numbers. Artillery rockets with a
range of 20 kilometers are now
widely available, and systems with
ranges of up to 40 kilometers are
becoming increasingly common.
For example, Egypt has the
Sakr-30 with a 30 kilometer
range; Iraq and Syria reportedly
have the Soviet 220mm BM-27
multiple rocket launcher with a 35
to 40 kilometer range; and Saudi
Arabia has expressed a strong in-
terest in the American-built
MLRS with its 40 kilometer
Significantly, several Arab
countries have acquired an ar-
tillery weapon with a range of
nearly 70 kilometers: the
Brazilian-made Astros 2 long-
range bombardment rocket.
When fired from positions in Jor-
dan, the Astros 2 could hit most
Israeli air bases. Iraq has taken
delivery of a number of Astros 2
systems, and Libya reportedly
also ordered it. Saudi Arabia is
the latest Arab country to acquire
the Astros 2, and apparently in-
tends to co-produce it. When
equipped with the SS-60 rocket,
the Astros 2 has a range of about
68 kilometers.
The increasing capability of ar-
tillery weaponry has profound
strategic implications in an en-

Cair bases so close to the front
. Under existing conditions,
any Israeli air base within 30
kilometers of Arab-held territory
can be subjected to intensive ar-
tillery bombardment from guns
and rockets. Air bases located up
to 40 kilometers from Arab
ground forces could be subjected
to artillery fire sufficiently in-
tense to prevent aircraft from tak-
ing off or landing. Even air bases
located up to 70 kilometers from
Arab artillery positions are now
vulnerable to attack from conven-
tional artillery rockets.
Because only one Israeli base is
within 40 kilometers of Syria, and
only two are within 70 kilometers,
Syrian artillery has only limited
opportunities to attack Israeli air-
fields, Syrian SS-21 missiles pose
a more significant threat, but one
that is still limited by geographic
considerations. Only four Israeli
military airfields are within range
of the SS-21, and this includes on-
ly one major air base. While the
Syrians also have the longer-
ranged SCUD missile, the effec-
tiveness of that weapon must be
considered doubtful. Thus, ar-
tillery and missile fire would pre-
sent a serious but not crippling
threat to Israeli air bases in the
event of an Arab-Israeli war that
involved only Syria, or if the
fighting was restricted to Syrian
territory only.
soil, SS-21 surface-to-surface
missile launchers from Iraq and
Syria and Astros 2 rocket laun-
chers from Iraq, Libya, or Saudi
Arabia would provide an Arab
coalition with the range, accuracy,
and lethality to strike every one of
Israel's air bases. At the.very
least, these weapons could pre-
vent aircraft from using the run-
ways, effectively neutralizing the
air bases. Thus, during the crucial
opening minutes of an attack,
Arab forces could keep a signifi-
cant portion of Israel's air force

become increasingly vulnerable to
Arab ground weaponry as the
1990s approach. The inventories
of existing sophisticated long-
ranged weapons, like the Astros 2
and the SS-21, will continue to
grow, and it is likely that other ad-
vanced weapons will be acquired.
It is possible that by the end of the
decade the Soviets could supply
SS-23 missiles to Syria and Iraq.
Sophisticated weapons also could
be obtained from Western sup-
pliers. NATO countries in par-
ticular have shown considerable
interest in developing new
missiles and rockets specifically
designed to carry anti-runway
munitions. For example, the U.S.
has examined modified surface at-
tack versions of the Lance and
Patriot missiles that would be

THE THREAT would increase
if the Soviet Union decided to sup-
ply Syria with the SS-23 surface-
to-surface missile in moderate
quantities. SS-23s launched from
Syria would have sufficient range
to hit any of Israel's air bases, and
would be able to inflict sufficient
damage to runways to temporari-
ly incapacitate even the best pro-
tected facilities.
If Jordan becomes involved in a
conflict, however, the threat pos-
ed by artillery and missiles
becomes significantly greater,
since all of Israel's air bases are
within 75 kilometers of Jordan.
Although only one Israeli air base
is within range of Jordan's ex-
isting artillery, Israel's antiair-
craft defenses and radar sites
would still be vulnerable. By at-
tacking air defense sites, the Jor-
danians would ease the way for
strike aircraft.
Expeditionary forces deployed
in Jordan and equipped with
surface-to-surface missiles and
long-range artillery would pose a
particularly serious threat. When
moved to positions on Jordanian
armed with antrrunway muni-
tions. It is possible that some of
those weapons might be made
available to Arab forces by the
early 1990s.
In the final analysis, however,
the magnitude of the threat will
be determined less by the
weapons themselves than by the
question of whether or not they
are deployed against Israel from
Jordanian soil. When based in
Syria, most of these weapons lack
the range needed to attack more
than a few Israeli air bases. In
contrast, the same weapons fired
from Jordan can hit strategic
targets throughout Israel.
Even when Arab forces acquire
effective long-range missiles, like
the SS-23, Jordan will still offer
important geographic advantages
to an attacking Arab force. There
will always be far more of the
weapons with shorter ranges, and
the closer an Arab force can come
to its intended targets, the more
damage that can- be done. It is this
vulnerability to attacks launched
from Jordan territory that largely
explains the sensitivity of Israeli
military planners to efforts by the
Jordanians to enhance their offen-
sive capabilities.

Temple Folk Tale Inspires 'Evil Eye' B By SANDRA COY
Wayland-Weston Town Crier
Seated at the computer
where she logged in 50 cen-
turies of Jewish superstitions
and bits of folk wisdom col-
lected over four years for her
book "How to Avoid the Evil
Eve." Brenda Rosenbaum of
Wayland, Mass. is all smiles.
"The whole thing is fun,"
she said. "I have been doing
editing for many years on
foreign affairs for Harvard,
Johns Hopkins and the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania. It's a big
change to see my name on the
front of a book instead of in the
credits. I typed my name in at
the Library of Congress when
we were there last month and
was amazed to find the book
was already on file."
Rosenbaum is married to
Paul Rosenbaum, a business
executive, the mother of Neil,
who will be a sophomore at
Wayland High School this fall,
and Glen, who will be a
freshman at Stanford.
Rosenbaum said the idea for
the book came in 1980 when an
amusing Jewish old wives tale
came across her desk in the of-
fice of Temple Beth El's
religious school in Sudbury
where she edited their journal.
"I wondered if anyone had
thought to collect these tales,"
she said.
"I've always had a strong in-
terest in Jewish history and I
also have a humorous way of
looking at things. So I checked
out book stores and card
catalogs for a humorous ap-
proach to the subiect, and
found that apparently no one
had done it," she said.
Over the next four years,
Rosenbaum researched
sources at Brandeis University
where she is administrative
coordinator of a program for
Jewish leadership and com-
munal service at the Hornstein
School. She also searched the
Library of Congress, and
libraries in Framingham and
New York City for materials.
She said the book draws most-
ly from old beliefs of eastern
and southern Europe, the
Mediterranean and the Middle
"To bring in a contemporary
view I wanted naive, black-
and-white drawings
throughout the text, but I
couldn't do them myself. I
decided to contact Stuart
Copans in New Hampshire
whose illustrations for the
Jewish catalogs were the
perfect style.
"Stuart loved the idea and
began work immediately. We
met periodically to collaborate
at the Holyoke Mall halfway
between us both. He is a child
psychiatrist as well as an il-
lustrator. What makes the
book funny, I think, is how
Stuart's contemporary
psychological and topical in-
sights work with the text of
old beliefs." The bizarre old
maxims paired with cartoon
come-backs depicting "new-
bizarre," form a running
dialogue between old and new.
Rosenbaum's favorite car-
toon is on page 58. "I asked
btuart to draw a picture of my
grandfather and one of the
superstitions I grew up with
that drinking the Havdalah
wine at the end of the Sabbath
would make hair grow on my
chest and chin. I never touched
the wine so far so good on
the hair!"

Brenda Rosenbaum enjoys perusing her recently-publisU
humorous book on Jewish superstition, "How to Avoid tk
Evil Eye." The giant salt shaker was a congratulatory rill
from a friend.
The Evil Eye
What is the "Evil Eye"?
"It's a glance of anger or envy
thought to alter reality," says
Rosenbaum. "The glance can
harm people, crops, farm
animals, children anything
precious. The concept was so
strong that people would clear
the streets if someone who was
believed to cast the evil eye ap-
peared. My grandmother s
generation used methods to
divert the evil eye such as red
ribbons, jewelry, amulets, veils
and tatoos." Conversations
were liberally sprinkled with
"kinahora" (no evil eye). Some
spat in threes for protection.
According to therapist
Madelvne Bailey, a friend of
Rosenbaum's, the evil eye is a
phenomenon of projection
attributing one's own feelings
to another. Said Rosenbaum,
"I think the fact that 'eye' and
T are homonyms is no coin-
cidence. The sense of evil is
"Superstition is universal,"
Rosenbaum said. "People
believe that something good
will be spoiled or taken away.
Superstitious beliefs and prac-
tices were largely connected
with passages in life birth,
marriage, childhood, and
especially death. People our
grandparents' aee and earlier
felt very vulnerable. Theyu,,
superstition to control or intal
pret what they didn'l
"We can afford to poke fal
at superstition now becaux]
we have scientific explanation,!
like the germ theory to explain
a baby's death, for example." [
Others helped
Rosenbaum said many peo- j
pie helped her at strategic
points. "A friend met Ml
Novak, author of 'Iacocca,' it|
a Bar Mitzvah in Newton i
mentioned my book," she said. I
Novak read her proposal and I
suggested she contact literary I
agent Helen Rees in Boston.
"Being a first-time author, I
was lucky she took me on,"
Rosenbaum said. Novak later
gave Rosenbaum the job u
managing editor of New Tradi- J
tions, the annual journal of I

editor. "I enjoy working with |
him," she said. "He has an ex-[

Kahane Says He Will Become
Prime Minister of Israel
labbi Meir Kahane, leader of
he extremist Kach Party in
Israel, predicted recently that
L will become Prime Minister
If Israel because the Israel
?overnment is unable to pre-
sent Arab terrorism.
Kahane, answering ques-
30ns after delivering a speech
a National Press Club lun-
ieon here, said that
American Jewish leaders are
''terrified" of him and that
kheir greatest fear is that some
day they will have to be at
Washington airport to geet
Prime Minister Kahane."
In his talk to the National
Press Club, Kahane used
humor and a more subdued
one than usual to present his
jriews to what was probably his
largest non-Jewish audience
The American-born rabbi,
#ho recently resigned as head
of the Jewish Defense League
which he founded, strongly
jdenied that he was a racist,
declaring that he is against
Iracism "with every fibre of my
Ibody." He said he was offend-
led by Israel President Chaim
iHerzog's recent statement
Icomparing his views with
Ithose of the Nazis. He said his
policies are not "Kahanism, it
|: Judaism."
Kahane maintained that
Ithere is a basic "contradic-
Ition" between the State of
Israel being both a democracy
[and a Jewish State. He argued
I that Israel cannot be a Jewish
I State if the Arab population,
I having a vote, outnumbers the
| Jewish population.
Kahane said that is why he
I wants to expel all Arabs, from
Israel proper as well as Judaea
and Samaria. He said he would
allow Arabs to stay in Israel
with full personal rights if they
would give up the right to
vote. But, he said, no self-
respecting Arab under the age
| of 40 would accept this.
At the same time, Kahane
[maintained that if the Arabs
left Israel, the country could
remain a democracy for Jews
since while he would prefer a
Jewish state ruled by the
Torah, he would never impose
the will of a minority on the

Kahane denounced a law
pending in the Knesset outlaw-
ing from participation in
Knesset elections parties
preaching racism or which are
opposed to democracy or to
Israel being a Jewish State. He
called the law, which is seen as
aimed at Kach, "stupid and
amateurish" and said if it was
introduced in the U.S. Con-
gress, American Jewish
organizations would be "climb-
ing the walls."
But when asked what he
would do if Kach was outlaw-
ed, he replied, "If I am bann-
ed, like (Charles) de Gaulle, I'll
go home to wait for the people
to call for me."

typeface I was using didn't
look good. Paul with incredible
patience went through all of
the fonts on the word pro-
cessor until he found that an
all-capitals, italic typeface
worked beautifully really
giving that part of the pro-
posal a professional look."
What's next
"I'm getting invitations to
speak," Rosenbaum said.
"Right now I'm preparing a
talk for a temple group in my
hometown, Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
They want to know what's on
the cutting room floor more
about the beliefs behind the
superstitions. I plan to go into
the various motifs of supersti-
tion I discovered which sur-
round the beliefs in evil spirits,
demons and the Evil Eye.
"Also, Stuart and I are
working on another project
but I'm too superstitious to
talk about it!" she said.
Does Rosenbaum believe in
the Evil Eve? "Of course
not! .. Kinahora.
"I guess my attitude is best
expressed by the Hasidic say-
ing, 'One should not believe in
superstitions still it is best
to be heedful of them."
