Soviet-Israeli Talks End
Described as 'Frank and Correct'
The West Point Jewish Chapel received a significant honor,
the United States Department of Defense's '4986 Award for
Design Excellence.' Shown is an exterior view of the
Chapel's towering sanctuary. The building provides a clear
religions presence. The Tablets, adorning the facade, are et-
ched with the symbols of the Twelve Tribes. With more than
three-million visitors to West Point annually, the Jewish
Chapel is becoming one of the most visited Jewish sites in the
Israeli-Soviet talks wound up
in one short 90-minute session
in Helsinki, the Finnish
capital, Monday, Aug 18.
Neither side would say that
the talks had broken down,
and political sources steered
away from any negative
description of the meeting.
Israeli delegation
spokesman Ehud Gol indicated
that the brief session was in-
evitable as the Soviet side had
an extremely narrow mandate
- to state the Soviet case,
listen to the Israelis and then
report back to Moscow.
Israeli spokesmen were at
pains to emphasize that the
talks had not broken down.
The very fact of the direct
meeting between official
Soviet and Israeli diplomats
was important, they stressed.
The Israeli delegation said
they had anticipated the talks
would not last longer than
"one or two days."
In telephone interviews from
Helsinki with the prestigious
New Evening news, an inter-
view television program
operated by educational televi-
sion, and the radio station of
the Israel Defense Force, and
later with Israel Radio, Gol
said that the meeting had been
"frank and correct... held in
a pleasant atmosphere." The
conversation was carried out
in English.
"At the request of the Finns,
we set aside two days for the
talks. But there was no agen-
da, and we did not know how
long the talks would last," he
Gol said the Soviet delega-
tion outlined its three points
dealing with the proposed
dispatch of a Soviet delegation
to Jerusalem to discuss Rus-
sian property matters, and the
Israelis had read out their ver-
bal statement stressing the
right of Russian Jews to
emigrate to Israel to join their
families and the freeing of
Jewish Prisoners of Zion, and

Local Rabbis Respond to
Temple Mount Controversy
Assistant News Coordinator
Several local rabbis were asked their comments by the
Jewish Floridian concerning Israel's former Chief Rabbi
Shlomo Goren's efforts to allow Jews to pray and erect a
synagogue on the Temple Mount. (See related article on
page 11).
Raising the issue of building places of worship on the
Temple Mount is "just another example of Rabbi Goren's
continual grandstanding and of Israel's political orthodox
extremism," says Rabbi Steven Westman of Temple Beth
Torah. "It was very nice when Rabbi Goren blew the shofar
at the Western Wall immediately after the Six-Day War in
1967 and attracted international media attention, but this
action is inflammatory." He noted that playing by Rabbi
Goren's own rules, no person has the right to build the

"The Jewish Mother: The
Reality Behind the Myth" is a
new program being offered
through the Jewish Family
Life Education Program of the
Jewish Family and Children's
Service and is available to any
group or organization without
The one to two hour pro-
gram features discussion and
other methods designed to
help people deal with the
moral issues confronting
Jewish mothers and
"The Jewish mother
caricature first burst upon us
in the early 1960's, when
Jewish writers and comedians
discovered in their immigrant
mothers useful targets for
both their humor and their
anger. Since then, the Jewish
mother has come to be viewed
as the embodiment of a
parent's worst impulses. As a
result, all mothers have learn-
ed to be self-conscious and
cautious in their child rearing
"I believe the time has come
for us to take a new look at the
Jewish mother stereotype. G-d
knows we don't seem to have
improved much as parents
since we began renouncing the
Jewish mother's way. Our
adolescent suicide rate has
doubled in the last two
decades, teenage pregnancies
rise year after year, drug
abuse continues to plague
many families, and cults lure
the innocent and insecure.
Perhaps we can find some in-
sights we overlooked within
those very qualities we have
ridiculed and rejected for the
last 20 years." (From "Hooray
for Jewish Mothers," by Fran-
cine Kleegbura, in March 28,
1985 Newsweek.)
Technological and social
changes threaten to erode
family life. The strengths of
the Jewish family have
guaranteed the survival of the
Jewish religion and people in
the past. Yet, the Jewish fami-
ly is subject to the ills ex-
perienced by the general socie-
ty. Jewish Family and
Children's Service provides
services to strengthen Jewish
Family Life. The program
bureau provides Jewish Fami-
ly Life Education programs
with the family in mind.
The above excerpt from
"Hooray for Jewish Mothers"
urges one to examine tradi-
tional values of Jewish paren-
ting in making families suc-
cessful. This is what the pro-
grams are designed to do
through lectures, vignettes,
and discussion, a fresh look is
taken at certain aspects of the
family to discover positive
methods of coping with com-
mon problems. The discussion
generated by programs on
Self-Esteem, (irandparenting
Single Parenting, and Inter-
marriage broadens perspec-
tives and reaffirms values.
When group participants
share their experiences, the
Jewish family is enriched. Pro-
blems of singles, Jewish elder-
ly, etc. can be confronted
creatively as a community.
Traditional values can serve a
function in increasing family
cohesiveness. They can be
adapted to modern lifestyles.
Despite societal change, peo-
ple still have the needs for in-
tergenerational connection,
belonging, and spiritual mean-
ing. Jewish heritage is rich in
meaningful values in each
stage of life.
Let Jewish Family and
Children'8 Service's staff
design a program topic for
your group with the Jewish
family in mind. Programs can
address the following issues
and more: "Enrich Your Mar-
riage What Every Husband
Wishes His Wife Would Know
and Vice Versa," "The Most
Final Separation
Widowhood Grieving and
Recovery," "Mothers and
Daughters A Special Bond,"
"Grandparenting: Nurture the
Bond Between Generations,"
"Over Sixty and Still Sexy,"
"Goodbye Ma: About Dying,"
"Choosing A Career," "Feel
Like a Million Dollars Self-
Esteem (for Children or
Adults)," etc.

Case of Teacher Promoting Bias To Be Reviewed
Brunswick (JTA) In a
dramatic turnaround, New
Brunswick Attorney-General
David Clark announced he
would review his decision not
to prosecute school teacher
Malcolm Ross of Moncton for
allegedly promoting hatred
against Jews because a book
by Ross that was said to be
unavailable was found on local
library shelves.
Previously, Clark had
announced New Brunswick
would not institute charges
against Ross, based on the
results of a 13-month police
Clark ruled that Ross could
not be charged with wilfully
Sromoting hatred against
ews under section 281.2(2) of
the Criminal Code because two
of his books did not fall under
the definition of hate
literature, while the third,
"Web of Deceit," probably did,
but was "unavailable to the
public," having been out of
print for five years.
ONLY A FEW days after
the announcement, several
journalists in New Brunswick
were able to get copies of
"Web of Deceit" from local
libraries, forcing red-faced
justice officials to reconsider
their decision.
The 106-page book, it seems,
was easily available from
libraries in Moncton, Frederic-
ton, Saint John and the
University of New Brunswick.
One journalist employed by
the Canadian Broadcasting
Corp. (CBC) said it was "easy"
to get the book, which was
located in regular library
stacks and not within
reference material, making it
available for general check-
Dr. Mary Travis, regional
librarian at Saint John
Regional Library, said "Web
of Deceit's" popularity has in-
creased in the past few mon-
ths. In one library, she noted,
the book had been checked out
just five times in eight years
and not at all since 1982. Now,
however, "you can rest
assured" the book has become
popular. Travis added there
are no plans to pull the book
from the shelves.
CLARK WAS unavailable
for comment on the several
days his office was contacted.
A department offical had no
comment on the matter.
Dr. Julius Israeli, who filed
the original complaint against
Ross last summer, was ex-
uberant at the decision to
reconsider. "It's a gift from
heaven," he said. "I feel
great." Israeli had not heard
officially from the Justice
Department, but he said he's
aware the sudden turn around
doesn't necessarily mean Ross
will be charged. "It could take
several more weeks" of in-
vestigation, Israeli said, and
the same decision could be ar-
rived at again.
Clark told a New Brunswick
newspaper immediately after
his ruling that his first decision
not to prosecute was "the
most difficult" he has had to
make as Justice Minister and
Attorney-General. He said the

Robin Weinberger, Program
Chairperson of the Business
and Professional Women's
Group of the Women's Divi-
sion of the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County, has an-
nounced that Gene Greenz-
weig, Executive Director of
the Central Agency for Jewish
Education in Miami, will be the

nors Club, Phillips Point, 777
South Flagler Drive, West
Palm Beach.
Ms. Weinberger and Ms.
Shubs noted that "as contem-
porary Jewish women, it is im-
perative for us to understand
where we are and where we
are going. Gene Greenzweig
will discuss the role of 'Jews in
America' and where we fit in.
We encourage career women
to ioin us and larn more ahnut

perienced educator."
Prior to assuming his pre-
sent position with the Central
Agency for Jewish Education,
Mr. Greenzweig served as
Director of Youth Programm-
ing for CAJE for three years.
In this position he expanded
the youth program to over
1,500 students in the formal

more in informal programs af-
filiated with the Jewish youth
movements and for non-
affiliated teenagers of the
For a five year period before

Although "Web of Deceit,"
written in 1978, is widely
available in New Brunswick, it
is not stored in the Metro
Toronto Library, Canada's
largest municipal library. But
the book is available to almost
anyone via an inter-library
loan from the National Library
of Canada, according to
spokesperson Ruth Lawless.
She said in an interview that

his practicing law, spent
several years in the business
world as president of an
automobile dealership and as
chief executive officer of a pro-

staff, Mr. Klein was an active
lay leader in the Jewish com-
munity of Cleveland where he
served as a member of the
Speakers Bureau of the Jewish
Federation, and as Chairman
of the Federation's Domestic
Anti-Semitism Task Force. He
was also a Board Member of
the Bureau of Jewish Educa-

A Free Market Boycott
Hard Words of Moderation
Major Japanese corpora-
tions continue to abide by the
Arab League boycott of Israeli
goods and services. Japanese
firms are not only reluctant to
trade directly with Israel, but
have also avoided involvement
with American companies
dealing with Israel which have
been black-listed by the Arab
League. Japan is more
vulnerable to oil pressure than
most West European nations
because of its primary
dependence on Persian Gulf
crude. But Jess Hordes, a
boycott expert with the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, says the Japanese are
more fearful of the boycott
than they need to be.
Hordes told NER that the
Japanese frequently go beyond
the boycott requirements in
their desire to keep Gulf con-
tracts. Japanese executives
see larger export markets in
the Arab world than they do in
Israel. Recently, Japan has
taken a more evenhanded ap-
proach to the Middle East, at
least diplomatically. This was
evidenced by Israeli Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir's
September visit, and a similar
trip by Minister-Without-
Portfolio Moshe Arens several
months ago. But, a Japanese
minister has yet to visit Israel,
part of a pattern in which, for
example, Israeli ships may
regularly land at Japanese
ports, but Japanese ships
decline to call on Israel.
Even before the 1973 Arab
oil embargo, however, low
levels of trade prevailed bet-
ween the two U.S. allies. Cur-
rent levels stand at $200
million, and diamonds make up
most of Israel's exports to
Japan. It is not so much actual
loss of business as it is the
"potential benefit" to both
countries. "No one is asking
for a hand-out from Japan,"
argued Hordes, only for
natural and unencumbered
levels benefiting both
Members of Congress,
notably Dan Glickman (D-
Kan.) and Mel Levine (D-
Calif.), have raised the issue
separately in meetings with
Japanese officials. Glickman
met in Japan last January with
Kiichi Miyazawa, Chairman of
the Liberal Democratic Party,
and expressed concern about a
news release by the Mazda
Corporation. The statement
said that Madza had been
"hesitant" about stengthening
its ties with the Ford Motor
Company while it was on the
Arab League's blacklist, but
now could "cooperate on a
worldwide scale since Ford
had been removed from the
Glickman was lobbied by
representatives of Mazda, who
assured him the press release
was inaccurate and "took
pains" to dispel any fears. But
telexes which American com-
panies have received from
Japanese firms cite the Arab
League boycotts as the reason
for curtailing trade. These
blacklisted American pro-
ducers avoid public disclosure
for fear of losing more
Glickman finds it "difficult
to believe" that Japanese in-
dustry could act without
government acquiescence. As
a close U.S. ally, Glickman told
NER, Japan "should respect
the integrity of Israel,"
another close ally.
Japan is a major economic
force, said Hordes, and par-
ticipates in the boycott "more
than any other industrialized
country in the world."
Observers say legislation
could damage relations with
Japan, and that contacts like
those made by Glickman and
Levine with Administration
support are the best course.
They say the Shamir and
Arens visits show potential for
improving the trade relation
ship. But Japan still has far to
go in fulfilling the demands of
a "free market," partly
because of its overestimation
of the threat posed by the

Mohammed Nasser sounds
like the kind of moderate many
Israelis and Americans envi-
sion when they call for direct
negotiations between Israel
and Palestinian Arabs. But the
bodyguards who flanked him
when he welcomed guests to
his spacious home earlier this
summer testified to the
dangers of "moderation." And
his own vision of a political set-
tlement highlighted the intrac-
tability of the conflict.
An electrical engineer,
Nasser lives with his family in
a village south of Hebron. He
said that he returned to the
West Bank from the Gulf oil
states in 1974, where he had
been an "extremist," active
"in the Palestinian move-
ment." But back in the Israeli-
administered territories "I
found a big gap between the
slogans and the realities. Un-
fortunately, Arab propaganda
and maybe Israeli propagan-
da gives a bad picture for
both sides." Nasser said that
the majority of Israelis and
Palestinian Arabs (on the
West Bank and Gaza Strip) do
want to coexist peacefully.
"I don't blame a Palestinian
living in Syria if he does not
think wisely. He has to think
as (Syrian President Hafez)
Assad thinks. A Palestinian in
Jordan has to think as King
Hussein does. So Palestinians
in the West Bank have to be
the main factor in any peace
process," Nasser told a group
of English-speaking visitors.
He insisted that unlike some
better-known West Bank and
Gaza "moderates" what he
says in English he also says in
Arabic to Palestinians.
"Without educating our own
people, without convincing
them, we can't proceed to any
Those "in Jordan and Iraq
can say, 'I will wait 100 years
to regain Jaffa,' Nasser said.
But for West Bankers and
Gazans, "it is in our interest to
end the occupation. .. even if
it is a so-called liberal military
occupation. And Israelis feel
that military occupation is cor-
rupting their society. .. So
things nave to start here" with
talks between the two sides.
Nasser said that expecting
the PLO to make peace with
Israel is futile. "Even the
Israeli left doesn't understand.
They are waiting for (PLO
Chairman Yasir) Arafat and he
can't come, he won't come";
Arafat cannot make peace
because it would mean his
political ouster or assassina-
tion. And, he charged, "the
Israeli right doesn't want any
Arabs to come'' to
Assassinations, like those of
the Mufti of Gaza and Nablus
Mayor Zafer al-Masri, in-
timidate the majority in the
West Bank and GaAza, Nasser
said. Al-Masri was killed
"because he proved that the
Palestinians have people who
can lead them without
Kalashnikovs (Soviet-made
rifles). Thousands of people at-
tended his funeral but a few
dozen pro-Arafat students
with banners and posters
"gave the world the impres-
sion it was a PLO rally."
Nasser, who held a publiciz-
ed meeting with Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin and
several Knesset members this
spring, said Israel should per-
mit residents of the territories
to organize politically. After a
period of organization new
groups might defeat PLO can-
didates in local elections. Then
Israel would have someone to
negotiate with and Hussein
might find a Palestinian part-
ner to certify Jordanian talks
with Israel.
While saying that the
Palestinian Arabs should
recognize Israel and negotiate
with it, Nasser asserts that "I
am not going to give up my
rights for the Israelis.' But
even in his scenario the pur-
pose of talks would be
something few Israelis could
countenance arranging
Israel's total withdrawal from
the territories gained in 1967,
including east Jerusalem, with
Jewish settlements remaining
under Arab sovereignty.
Nasser expects that the West
Bank and Gaza would be
federated with Jordan if on-
ly because the Arab states
would not, in the final analysis
permit an independent Palesti-
nian entity to exist.
Some Israeli administrators
questioned Nasser's activities
They pointed out that although
he has talked openly of the
need for political organization,
he has not applied tor the re-
quired permission. In addition,
they doubted whether he was
speaking for anyone but
An American analyst, also
doubtful of Nasser's political
significance, said that the
older generation of pro-
Jordanian "notables" was los-
ing influence. Meanwhile, half
the Arab population of the ter-
ritories is under 16 and poten-
tially volatile. However
sincere, the middle-aged
Nasser may be speaking into a

(Near East Report)
Unconventional Wisdom
American interests and
Middle Eastern stability will
be served better if Washington
gives the region less, not
more, diplomatic attention. So
argues Richard Haass, a lec-
turer at Harvard University's
Kennedy School of Govern-
ment and former Defense and
State Department staffer.
In an article in the August
issue of Commentary, Haass
asserts that the idea of "ter-
ritory for peace" the
assumption that the Arab-
Israeli conflict could be solved
by Israel's return of most or all
the land gained in the 1967
Six-Day War in exchange for
peace from its Arab neighbors
"stands little chance of be-
ing realized." (Reaffirmed by
State Department Spokesman
Bernard Kalb on Aug. 1, the
territory-for-peace formula
has underpinned American in-
itiatives from the Rogers plan
of 1969 through the Reagan
plan of 1982.)
Despite the "continuing
allure" of the formula, the con-
ditions on which such a settle-
ment could be achieved do not
exist. Haass argues that
Israel, disillusioned by the
stunted peace with Egypt and
in a "brooding" mood follow-
ing the 1973 Yom Kippur and
1982 Lebanon wars, will not
repeat a major territorial con-
cession like the return of the
Sinai Desert to Egypt. In addi-
tion, he notes the political rise
of the "nationalist Right" and
"militant religious sentiment"
in the post-1973 era. This
means that for many Israelis
the argument now focuses not
on whether the Jordan Rift
should be the country's defense
border but whether it should
be the political one as well.
And developments in the
Arab world deeply undercut
the territory-for-peace model.
Haass writes that "the univer-
sal Arab rejection of Egypt,
and Sadat's subsequent
assassination, bode ill both for
long-term Egyptian-Israeli
ties and for the prospect that
any other Arab leader would
risk as much for peace." Jor-
dan's King Hussein, too weak
to stay out of the war in 1967,
has never become strong
enough to make peace. Syria's
implacable President Hafez
Assad is an even more unlikely
negotiating partner.
Also contributing greatly to
"the current stalemate have
been the politics of the PLO."
Its internal divisions, refusal
to recognize Israel and its con-
tinued embrace of terrorism
make it "an organization with
the power to undermine but
not to contribute to the pro-
spects for peace."
Meanwhile, the Soviets
criticize U.S. peacemaking ef-
forts and go on arming key
Arab states hostile to com-
promise. According to Haass,
Moscow's actions support "the
perception in the Arab world
that a military option still ex-
ists and that time works for

rather than against the radical
Arab cause."
But Haass disputes the con-
ventional wisdom that the
current stalemate is inherently
unstable and, without a U.S.
diplomatic initiative, will slip
toward war. If Egypt remains
on the sidelines, "only Syria
has the ability to engage Israel
militarily. If it does, "the reali-
ty is that Syria would lose bad-
ly. .. What is emerging in the
Middle East, then, is a state of
no peace-no war..."
U.S. interests in the Arab
world do not have to suffer in
such a situation, even with
Washington and Jerusalem
closely allied. Haass notes that
"in the Middle East and
beyond, the world teems with
examples of states able to
coduct a wide range of.. .
business dealings notwithstan-
ding deep political divides."
Pressing the territory-for-
peace model will produce only
frustration. That is because
"the maximum that Israel
could be expected to proj
in any (land-for-peace) pacl
would fall short of the
minimum any Arab state or
the PLO could be expected to
In fact, "visible U.S. efforts
aimed at a comprehensive Mid-
dle East settlement will help
perpetuate the escapist and
self-serving illusion in the
Arab world that the key to
regional settlement lies not in
Arab willingness to com-
promise but in American will-
ingness to pressure Israel."
Instead of focusine on the
ultimate status of the West
Bank, Haass says the United
States should promote "a mix-
ture of home rule and func-
tional ties between Palesti-
nians and both Jordan and
Israel... There is sense in con-
fronting only those issues for
which a consensus may be
fashioned, while postponing
those which are simply too dif-
ficult to address."

'I Just Can't Stand it Another Minute ...'
Friday, August 29, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 7
A Personal view from
the Jewish Family
and Children'8 Service
(All case names mentioned in
these articles are fictitious;
client information at Jewish
Family and Children's Service
is held in the strictest of
"I just can't stand it another
minute." That is a phrase
counselors frequently hear
during the first interview. It
may be that "it" refers to the
way a husband is behaving, or
how a child acts, or in-
terference from in-laws, or the
boss on the job.
When the counselor asks:
"How long has your husband,
or your child, or mother-in-
law, or boss been acting this
way?" the answer frequently
is: "Oh, all that has been going
on for years." So why has the
situation suddenly become
unbearable? In other words,
what particular straw broke
that particular camel's back?
Sometimes it turns out to be
an apparently quite unrelated
event that turns a long-term
problem into an immediate
crisis. For instance, Mrs.
Silver has been living in a state
of undeclared warfare, inter-
rupted only by an occasional
declared truce, for years. Her
fnRia, Mrs. Levy has a similar
problem. Every morning at 10
a.m., the two ladies discuss
their situation on the
telephone, cheering each other
up, commiserating with each
other, and generally agreeing
that men are a much overrated
sex. One fine day, Mrs. Levy
announces that her family is
moving to Sheboygan, where
Mr. Levy has been
Now, Mrs. Silver might be
expected to be sad because she
lost her friend and confidant.
Somehow writing out all her
woes and sending them air-
mail to Sheboygan is not near-
ly as satisfying as discussing
them on the phone. But Mrs.
Soldiers from Norway's con-
tingent to the United Nations
Interim Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) "detained a squad of
four Palestinian terrorists who
were on their way to carry out
an attack in the Galilee ...
The terrorists possessed a
large quantity of explosives"
(Kol Yisrael, July 28). After
disarming the terrorists,
members of a pro-Syrian fac-
tion, the UNIFIL troops "set
them free."
(Near East Report)
Silver goes further than that:
she comes to counseling an-
nouncing that she just can't
stand her husband one more
day, and she is moving out. In
her own mind, she did not con-
nect the sudden crisis in her
marriage with her friend's
move to another state, but the
counselor did.
Eventually, Mrs. Silver was
convinced that her telephone
coffee klatch with Mrs. Levy
had really allowed her to
postpone solving her real pro-
blem the relationship with
her husband. She set to work
on it with the counselor, who
was just as sympathetic as
Mrs. Levy, but a great deal
more constructive and helpful.
In recent months the Silver
family has been much happier,
and Mrs. Silver has found a
number of new friends with
whom she can discuss topics
besides the natural inferiority
of males.
Mr. Hyman has been holding
down the same job for 15
years. He didn't particularly
like his boss, but as he put it:
"After all, I just work for the
guy." Two months ago the
company decided to install
new accounting equipment.
Ever since then, Mr. flyman
has been getting into shouting
matches with the boss. He has
already been told that if he
doesn't watch it, he'll probably
be fired. After a few inter-
views in which the accounting
equipment was not even men-
tioned, the counselor asked
whether any changes had oc-
curred in the office recently.
Mr. Hyman said yes, they had
hired a new pretty secretary,
new curtains had been install-
ed in the waiting room, and
that an expensive, fancy com-
puter had been brought in ...
and placed right outside his of-
fice door. It soom became ap-
parent that Mr. Hyman con-
sidered the computer a rival.
Didn't his boss trust his
calculations? And besides, if
they could afford that
machine, they could afford a
long overdue raise for him.
Again, after several sessions
with the counselor, Mr.
Hyman realized that the com-
puter was not a threat to him
... it did completely different
work. He then got up enough
courage to ask for a raise. Now
he is back on the same track he
took in the pre-computer days
cool and courteous, but not
exactly friendly. This was all
that was required of him.
In a sudden crisis, it's impor-
tant to understand what has
precipitated the immediate
problem. Often it is the

Teen-ace immigrants from Ethiopia receive their first in-
troduction to Israeli life in an immigration-adsorption
Page 8 The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County/Friday, August 29, 1986
Israeli Researchers Seek Ways to Close
Culture Gap for Ethiopian Immigrants
Hadassah-funded studies
underway here are seeking
ways to speed the absorption
into Israeli society of 8,000
Ethiopian Jews about 2,000
of them children who were
rescued from the Sudan last
The research is being carried
out by Youth Aliyah, Israel's
renowned child rescue and
rehabilitation agency, and
Hadassah's Vocational
Guidance Institute. Both are
searching for ways to bridge
the vast cultural differences
that are frustrating efforts to
provide the immigrants with
work and social stalls essential
to their adjustment to their
new environment.
Dr. Chaim Rosen, an
American-born anthropologist
and former Peace Corps
volunteer in Ethiopia, and Dr.
Emanuel Chigier, a pediatri-
cian and Director of Youth
Aliyah's Medical and Psycho-
Social Services, are finding
that the most difficult pro-
blems arise less because of the
contrasts in technological ad-
vancement between the Israeli
and Ethiopian cultures
although they are enormous
but rather because of the dif-
ferences in the ways that in-
dividuals from both cultures
view themselves and the world
around them.
Dr. Rosen is working with
the Vocational Guidance In-
stitute, which tests learning
and vocational skills and ad-
vises on career choices, to
adapt existing psychometric
tests to the unique culture and
life experiences of the Ethio-
pian immigrants. Although
Ethiopians are known to be
highly intelligent and quicker-
than-average learners, ex-
isting tests are so skewed
culturally they cannot ade-
quately measure the im-
migrant's educational and
career potential.
Dr. Chigier, who is responsi-
ble for a range of Youth Aliyah
programs in medical care and
health education, is working
with adolescent Ethiopian
girls for whom the transition
to a new life in Israel is prov-
ing especially difficult.
In her native culture the
young Ethiopian girl "had no
adolescence in the Western
sense," Dr. Chigier says, "no
opportunity to make decisions
and no education towards
decision-making. To use
Kychological terminology, she
s no internal locus of
Dr. Chigier explains that as
children, Ethiopian girls are
instructed by their elders and
do as they are told. Marriages
are arranged when girls reach
puberty, and their husbands
and their in-laws make all deci-
sions for them for the rest of
their lives.
In Israel's egalitarian socie-
ty, however, these young
women suddenly are over-
whelmed by the choices they
must make and the freedom
they have to make them, Dr.
Chigier says.
His research team is ex-
perimenting with the use of
stories illustrated with
thotographic slides to help
Ethiopian girls understand the
kinds of choices they must
make, the process involved in
making them and their conse-
quences. The stories range in
content from situations based
on Ethiopian folklore to con-
temporary sexual behavior.
A Youth Aliyah psychologist
disucsses each story in detail
with the girls and, over time,
helps them understand how
personal decisions are made
and how to live with and rec-
tify bad ones all within the
context of Israeli social values.
It is a process that can require
a substantial amount of time,
but has shown positive results.
"The stories are designed to
help the girls to cross the
bridge from Ethiopia to
Israel," Dr. Chigier says.
"We're after evolution, not
Dr. Chigier and his staff also
are currently engaged in a pro-
ject to educate Ethiopian
youngsters in modern
medicine and personal health
and hygiene. With funds from
Hadassah, teams of doctors,
nurses, technicians and
teachers travel to Youth
Aliyah villages in a specially -
equipped van called a
"Healthmobile" to bring the
Ethiopian youngsters practical
demonstrations in dealing with
medical practitioners and facts
about curing illness and stay-
ing healthy.
Dr. Rosen, who also serves
as a consultant to human ser-
vices professionals working
with the immigrants, says that
the sources of misunderstan-
ding between Ethiopians and
Israelis are often as surprising
as the friction they can create
like the issue of names.
"Most Ethiopians have
several names," he notes, "a
religious name, the name
given to them by parents and
other names bestowed over
the years by family members
and others that are used to ex-
press various aspects of their

Names also play a role in
conflicting standards of social
etiquette, Dr. Rosen has
found, which is highly struc-
tured and formal in Ethiopia
and much less so in Israel.
Israelis, eager to get on a first-
name basis with the
newcomers, were surprised
and felt rejected, when Ethio-
pians were appalled by such a
social faux pas.
Most problems, however, are
more substantial and have
more serious consequences for
the Ethiopians' adaptation to
Israel. But Dr. Rosen suggests
that patience and a willingness
on both sides to work things
out can overcome most
"What the problems come
down to is that it is not our
tools that make us different,
but our understanding of who
and where we are.
"Of course, we also have a
lot going for us," Dr. Rosen
concludes. "After all, we're
both Jewish."

Religious Intolerance High This Election Year
already seen more instances of
religious intolerance than oc-
cur throughout most election
years, according to a report
released by People For The
American Way, a quarter-
million-member nonpartisan
constitutional liberties
Based on the experience in
this year's party primaries,
caucuses, and conventions,
People For's study warns,
"This year may see some of
the most intolerant and decep-
tive campaign tactics in recent
People For's President An-
thony Podesta said, "This ear-
ly in the year, most instances
of religious intolerance and un-
fair campaign tactics have
been confined to intra-party
battles, such as the extremism
and conspiracy theories of the
LaRouche movement within
the Democratic Party and the
increasingly deceptive and in-
tolerant tactics of the
Religious Right operating
within the Republican Party."
"Considering the unfair tac-
tics used in this year's intra
party skirmishes, there is
great cause for concern about
what will happen when
Republicans and Democrats
square off in this fall's elec-
tions," Podesta warned.
In its review of the first half
of 1986, People For's report
found that instances of
political intolerance ranged
from "the anti-Semitism of the
LaRouche movement within
the Democratic Party, to an at-
tack on a Christian Scientist in
a Republican Congressional
Primary in Texas, to demands
that candidates in several
states answer questionnaires
about their religious views,
and even prayers for the death
of political opponents."
The report found that the
Religious Right continues to
practice "a new form of in-
tolerance which says there is
only one way for godly people
to vote, declares Biblical prin-
ciples require adherence to a
narrow set of political opi-
nions, and claims divine en-
dorsement for political

HIAS Calls for Increase in Immigrant Admissions
statement presented on July
30 before the House Subcom-
mittee on Immigration,
Refugees and International
Law, HIAS (the Hebrew Im-
migrant Aid Society) express-
ed support for the overall
thrust of the current legal im-
migration program. However,
the agency called for certain
changes that would strengthen
the family reunification orien-
tation of the present system
and provide increased oppor-
tunities for the admission of
professionals and skilled and
unskilled workers. Speaking
for the organized American
Jewish community, Karl D.
Zukerman, HIAS Executive
Vice President, urged an in-
crease of 80,000 in the overall
numbers of immigrant
Mr. Zukerman opened his
remarks with an historic over-
view of Jewish immigration to
America, and stressed that
although, for over a century,
HIAS has been the interna-
tional migration agency of the
organized American Jewish
community, the efforts of the
agency have not been ex-
clusively on behalf of Jews.
HIAS has helped non-Jewish
Ethiopians, Poles, Cubans and
others to find refuge in this
land. "In recent years," he
said "we were proud to join
other migration agencies in of-
fering assistance and support
to the great wave of migration
frm Southeast Asia."
"Today's immigration
system was designed to bring
standards of fairness to the ad-
missions process," Mr. Zuker-
man stated. "It off era equal
access under equivalent
criteria for potential entrants
from every part of the world.
The United States is one of the
few countries of the world of-
fering admissions oppor-
tunities for people without
regard to race or religion and
without differentiating among
geographical origins.
The following is a summary
of Mr. Zukerman's statement
to the Subcommittee,
highlighting several of HIAS'
major concerns.
Family Reunification
Emphasizing strong support
for family reunification as the
cornerstone of U.S. immigra-
tion admissions policy, the
HIAS statement notes that the
health and well-being of the
family are nurtured by law and
policy in the U.S., that our
policymakers have long realiz-
ed that vital, well-functioning
families contribute to
economic growth, community
stability and spiritual and men-
tal health.
The HIAS statement further
explained that since 1965
(when U.S. immigration law
abandoned national origins
quotas and substituted a fami-
ly reunification policy) im-
migrant admissions from
Latin America and Asia have
increased dramatically. This
has broadened the areas of
origin of immigrants to this
country presenting further
evidence of family reunifica-
tion as both color blind and na-
tionality neutral.
The Preference System
Currently, the preference
system allocates the total
available number of 270,000
immigrant visas among
several categories of ap-
plicants. In the interest of fur-
thering the goals of family
reunification, HIAS endorses
the current system, voicing
the following concerns:
From time to time, at-
tempts have been made to
restrict or to eliminate the se-
cond and fifth preferences
the second preference admits
spouses and unmarried sons
and daughters of lawful per-
manent residents, the fifth ad-
mits siblings of adult U.S.
citizens. HIAS categorically
opposes restriction or abolition
of these categories.
First preference aliens
should not be counted among
the preference admissions,
rather, these unmarried adult
sons and daughters of U.S.
citizens should be admitted as
immediate relatives, without
numerical limitation.
20 percent of total im-
migrant visas, now allocated
to the first preference should
be divided among those
categories most seriously
backlogged the fifth and
labor-related preferences.
Immigrant Admissions
In regard to immigrant ad-
mission numbers, HIAS sup-
ports the practice of admitting
immediate relatives outside of
any numerical limitation, and
subject to no overall cap.
HIAS also backs the recom-
mendation of the Select Com-
mission on Immigration and
Refugee Policy that the pre-
sent preference admissions
cap of 270,000 be raised to
350,000. Such an increase is
seen as furthering the aims of
U.S. immigration policy
without incurring severe
economic or social cost.
The agency further urges
that a moderate increase in ad-
mission numbers be allotted to
the third and sixth
preferences, which provide for
the admission of professionals
and! skilled and unskilled
workers who have special abili-
ty, or whose services are in

recommends that some of the

HIAS also recommends the
following changes to the Sub-
committee in order to further
the goals of family reunifica-
tion and streamline the admis-
sions system within the con-
text of U.S. national interest:
1) that beneficiaries of approv-
ed visa petitions in over-
subscribed categories for
whom visa numbers are not

are in life-threatening situa-
tions, immediately be paroled
into the U.S. on humanitarian
grounds with work authoriza-
tion. (Their status would be ad-
justed only when their im-
migration petition becomes
current.); 2) that minor
children of beneficiaries of im-
mediate relative parent peti-
tions be granted the same
status as their parents; and 3)
that a special panel be conven-
ed to address the increasing
backlog in certain preference
categories, especially the
backlogs from Mexico and the

Arab Anti-Semitic Literature Protested
Simon Wiesenthal Center has
lodged protests both in the
U.S. and abroad against the
recent reemergence and pro-
liferation of anti-Semitic
literature in the Arab world.
Rabbi Marvin Hier and Rab-
bi Abraham Cooper, the
Center's dean and associate
dean, respectively, met Vice
President George Bush Tues-
day, Aug. 14 to document this
trend for Bush upon his return
from the Middle East.
Hier said they showed Bush
a particularly disturbing
Bublication by the Syrian
'efense Minister Mustafa
Tlas, "The Matzah of Zion," a
revival of the traditional anti-
Semitic blood libel. The cover
of Tlas's book depicts two
Jewish caricatures with large
noses and beards, and one of
them holding a knife cutting
off the head of a non-Jew into a
HIER SAID Bush called the
book "outrageous and repug-
nant" and after examining the
cover, hurled the book across
the room.
The Wiesenthal Center
discovered "The Matzah of
Zion" about seven weeks ago
and translated it into English.
They sent a copy of the book
and English excerpts to
Secretary of State George
Shultz and also delivered a
copy to Bush at the meeting.
Shultz, in a letter, told Hier
he would forward the book to
the U.S. Consulate in
Damascus with instructions to
investigate this trend.
Hier said the book shatters
the Syrian facade of an official
policy of anti-Zionism rather
than anti-Semitism. Hier
noted that Tlas is in the
mainstream, not the fringe of
the Syrian political hierarchy.
"Mustafa lias is the second or
third most important person in
Syria," Hier said. "He is at the
pinnacle of power and has a
regular dialogue with Western
officials," he said.
TLAS IS A self-proclaimed
poet who has published 34
books to date. To become
Syrian Minister of Defense,

President Assad's brother
Rifat for the key political
Tlas, in remarks published,
said U.S. officials have become
hostage to Israel, and force re-
mains the only Arab option to
resolve the Middle East
Tlas also said Syria rejected
Bush's request to visit Syria to
discuss issues of terrorism on
his recent trip to the Middle
East. Syria replied that it had
nothing to do with terrorism
and thus nothing to talk about
with Bush on this topic.
The Wiesenthal Center also
sent a letter of protest to the
President of France's Sor-
bonne University calling on
the prestigious institution to
bar an upcoming doctoral
thesis by Tlas. The French
press reported that Tlas's
thesis is an analysis of Soviet
strategy, but this has not been
confirmed. The Center urged
the Sorbonne not to give
legitimacy to Tlas in light of
his "intellectual dishonesty"
as evidenced in "The Matzah
of Zion."
Sorbonne President Jacques
Soppelsa responded to the
Center's letter saying a doc-
torate would be granted or
denied solely on the basis of
the scientific merits of the
thesis in question.

Ethiopian immigrants are

jobs, according to the report
presented in a meeting with
Labor and Social Affairs
Ministry directors.
Absorption Ministry Direc-
tor General Meir Shamir told
the directors at the meeting
that all the Ethiopian youth
are within an educational
framework. About 4,700
children are studying in the
school system, 2,400 are in
Youth Aliya programs and
about 1,000 older students are
in the student authority pre-
academic programs or profes-
sional training courses.
Most of the employed im-
migrants do some type of out-
door work, others work in fac-
tories or attend courses and
Hebrew classes.
The Ministry heads met to
discuss reducing the numbers
of unemployed immigrants
and improving integration into
the work force for those im-
migrants who have not been
trained. The discussions focus-
ed on organizing a comprehen-
sive program of training prior
to transferring the respon-
sibility of the needy Ethiopian
population to local welfare
Shamir advised the other
Ministry heads to avoid setting
up separate social service net-
works for new immigrants
because this could make them
permanently dependent on the
absorption system and might
hinder their integration into
the society.

Rabbi Westman
Local Rabbis Respond to
Temple Mount Controversy
Continued from Pa*e 1 Twnp,e ^fore ^
Messiah comes. "There are enough ten-
sions in the area without this adding to
"I'm all for it," declared Rabbi
Howard J. Hirsch of Central Conser-
vative Congregation of the Palm
Beaches and Congregation B'nai Jacob.
He sees no reason why Jews shouldn't
gather for prayer on the "holiest site of
Jewish worship." But, at the same time,
he realizes that Moslem sensitivities
have to be taken into consideration.
"We had the same problem at the Tomb
of the Patriarchs in Hebron and a plan
was worked out where prayers can be
held on the site and not be in conflict
with Moslem worship." Although he has
long been convinced that Rabbi Goren is
correct in knowing where the altar is (so
Jews, according to Jewish law, would be
allowed to pray there), he demured on
the possibility of building the Third
Rabbi Hirsch Temple. "That is a different proposal
and, with the current inflammatory
climate (between Jews and Arabs), I
wouldn't be in favor of it."
Rabbi Emanuel Eisenberg of Temple
Beth Sholom in Lake Worth believes
that Jews have the Western Wall at
which to pray and "that is enough."
Building a synagogue on the Temple
Mount will "just cause trouble between
Jews and Arabs and, at this time, the
proposal is out of line not proper.
When there is peace, we should discuss Kabbl k,8enbrg
the issue." He also pointed out that Rab-
bi Goren is the former chief rabbi and
that the current chief rabbi has not voic-
ed an opinion. "I say leave it alone."
"I am distressed by the proposal,"
commented Rabbi Alan L. Cohen of
Temple Beth El. "It's not that I think
Jews should be precluded from praying
anywhere, but the volatile political ex-
plosiveness of the Mideast prevents us
from pushing for a public place of
prayer." He also feels that building the
Third Temple would divide Jews more
than unite them. "There are class struc-
tures between religious and secular
Jews in Israel. Who would administer
the Temple?" asks Rabbi Cohen. Fear-
ing that the Orthodox rabbinate in
Israel would be in charge, he believes
that as a Conservative rabbi, they could
exclude him from having a role. He sees
Israel as being the cohesive element for
the dispersed Jewish community and
that a Temple would not serve a
"positive purpose in Jewish life."
Although he feels, according to Jewish
law, a Temple should and could be built
on the Temple Mount, Rabbi Leon B.
Fink of Congregation Beth Kodesh of
Boynton Beach doesn't believe that it
should be built in the midst of so much
controversy. "A synagogue should be a
place of quiet and repose but where
there is a guarantee of controversy like
there would be, I think it is not the
recommended path."
Rabbi Howard Shapiro of Temple
Israel agrees that Rabbi Goren and his
associates may be correct in terms of
Jewish law, but he believes that "they
are ignoring centuries of history in
which the Al Aksa Mosque and the
Dome of the Rock have been erected on
that mount. They are feeding into the
hands of Moslem extremists and there is
no way that anybody can convince me
that the prayers offered on top of the
Temple Mount are heard any faster than
the prayers offered anywhere else in
this world."
The strife between the religious factions in Israel is of
primary concern to Rabbi Joel Levine of Temple Judea.
"Israel need* to settle her internal religious problems bet-
ween the ultra-orthodox and the non-orthodox before they
think of anything else to do." He offers the following
analogy which emphasizes his thoughts, "They need to put
their own house in order before they start building a House
of God."

group of rabbis led bv former
Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Shlomo Goren launched earlier
this month a renewed cam-
paign to allow Jews to pray
and to erect a synagogue on
the Temple Mount.
Jewish prayer on the site
here of the two destroyed
Jewish Temples has been ban-
ned following a 1967 govern-
ment decision to continue the
status quo on the Mount, run
by the Supreme Moslem Coun-
cil. Also in effect is a ruling by
the Chief Rabbinical Council
not to allow prayer there for
fear that Jews will enter the
Holy of Holies, the chamber
which was entered only by the
high priests.
But Goren and a number of
other prominent rabbis called
for a gathering 10 days before
the fast of Tisha B'Av to
demonstrate that by Jewish
law, Jewish prayer on the
Temple Mount is not only per-
mitted, but desired.
The gathering was held at
the newly built Idra Raba
Yeshiva, overlooking the
Western Wall. The Yeshiva is
directed by Goren, who ex-
plained there was no need for
Jews to be concerned over
prayers on the Temple Mount.
Goren argued that most of
the dissenting rabbis have not
studied the matter thoroughly.
He said that following
thorough research, he had no
doubt that the Mount contains
a large plot on which the Tem-
ple was not erected, which
could be accessible to Jews.
The Temple was known to
r 7,680 square yards, and
size of the Mount was
twice that. Therefore, he
noted, the entire southern sec-
tion, presently the site of the
Al-Aksa Mosque, could be
open to Jews.
The meeting ended with a
halachic (Jewish legal) ruling
that Jews were permitted to
go on the Temple Mount. It
called on the government to
lift the ban, erect synagogues
there and halt what it called il-
legal building by the Moslem
authorities on the Mount. The
gathering established a new
body calling itself the Supreme
Rabbinical Council on the Tem-
ple Mount.
Among those attending the
meeting were the Chief
Sephardic Rabbi of Jerusalem,
the Chief Rabbi of Givatayim,
a member of the Chief Rab-
binical Court and the head of
the Kiryat Arba Yeshiva.

Volunteers For Israel Share Experiences
June 16 was the commence-
ment of new experiences for
my wife, Sylvia, and I for
several reasons. First, we used
Tower Air instead of El Al; se-
cond, we worked in different
areas of the program; third,
we worked and lived like kib-
butzniks for 11 days.
Over the years, we worked
on different archeological digs
where the volunteers used
Tower Air. Why did we use
Tower Air instead of El Al?
June is a heavy travel month
to Israel. El Al did not have
room for all the volunteers
who applied. The main office
of "Volunteers" therefore,
had to use Tower Air. To our
surprise, the food and service
was comparable to El Al. The
trip is also non-stop to Israel.
Sylvia opted to serve in the
Wolfson Hospital in Cholon, I
went with the other volunteers
to Beer Sheva.
Her assignment in the
hospital sterilization room was
to prepare the necessary in-
struments and various ban-
dages for surgical operations.
My work in the Israel
Defense Force warehouse was
that of a stock clerk. Working
with the Israelis, I put away in-
coming equipment and
withdrew inventory to fill re-
quisitions from other bases..
The modern way of main-
taining the inventory
fascinated me at this
warehouse. Every piece of
equipment had a location file
that was maintained on index
cards. In addition a computer
maintained the perpetual in-
ventory for each item.
The group of 22 volunteers
(18 under the age of 25) came
from Texas, Oklahoma,
Chicago, New York, Connec-
ticut, Florida and Iceland. The
volunteer from Iceland in-
dicated that she is considering
making Aliyah as her love for
Israel is unabounding.
At the end of service, five
opted for a second period of
service. Information regarding
the Volunteers program can be
obtained at 6501 Sunrise
Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
33013. The office is open Mon-
day, Tuesday, Thursday and
Friday from 1 to 4 p.m.
Sylvia and I had been invited
to spend as much time as we
wanted in Kibbutz Malkeya in
the Galilee. We took advan-
tage of this offer.
There is only one bus a day
that goes to Kibbutz Malkeya
in the Galilee from Haifa. It
services all the Kibbutzim and
Arab villages along the route.
What would have been a
hum-drum ride turned out to
be a very exciting one. The
beauty of the land, the or-
chards, the farms, the fish
ponds, the forests all came into
view as the ride progressed up
the mountain. The bus driver
sensing our excitement
became our tour guide poin-
ting out different places of in-
terest. For example: in the
easterly direction, you can see
the Hulah Valley, then the
Golan Heights, and in the nor-
theast Mt. Herman, Lebanon
was on the other side of the
fence next to the road we were
Jackie, our hostess met us at
the bus stop. As we walked the
kilometer to her home, we
wondered about our accom-
modations; will we be comfor-
table in our new environment;
what would we do; where do
we eat; what kind of people
live on the kibbutz; what is
their relationship with one
another; their cultural and
demographic backgrounds?
We could not believe our
eyes as we approached the
home of Bob and Jackie (Bob is
a psychologist and Jackie is a
bio-chemist). The homes in the
area were modern town houses
painted white with red
shingles on the roofs. The
landscaping of grass, flowers
and trees made the surroun-
dings similar to that in any ful-
ly landscaped neighborhood in
the United States.
The interiors were equally as
beautiful. The first floor had a
den, small kitchen, a dining
room-living room combination
and a patio. The upper floor
had two bedrooms and a se-
cond patio. Was this the way a
kibbutznik lives or were we
dreaming? The reality is that
some Kibbutzim are more ad-
vanced than others. We were
lucky to be guests at Kibbutz
families and 350 children plus
volunteers live in Malkeya.
The original group came from
Iran in 1948. They took over
an abandoned British Army
Camp on top of the mountain.
As of 1986, members come
from 12 countries.
Their life style is enviable,
the family unit is a cohesive
one. Parents hugging and kiss-
ing their children, the children
responding in a similar
fashion. Families in American
have lost this touch of one for
all, all for one.
Children start early with
responsibilities. They have to
work a certain number of
hours a year, to fulfill then-
obligation to the kibbutz. Shel-
ly, the daughter of our hosts
(16 years old) worked in the
fields. Saturday is Kibbutz
visiting day no invites just
knock on the door and say
"Shabbot Shalom."
Education is important to
the Kibbutz, not only for the
children but for the adults as
well. Malkeya had their own
primary school staffed by
teachers who live there and a
centrally located high school
shared with other kibbutzim.
The high school teachers are
also Kibbutzniks. The adult's
education in college is financed
by the Kibbutz.
Members have many profes-
sional backgrounds. There are:
PhD's, college professors, a
conservative rabbi (he went to
the Seminary in NYC with
Rabbi Josiah Derby's son
Levi), psychologists,
agronomists, economists, civil,
mechanical and electrical
engineers, an orthonologist,
nurses, computer technicians,
a micro biologist, poets (with
published works), etc.
The Kibbutz produces cattle
for beef, chickens for meat (as
compared to egglayers) one
half million per year, 60 tons of
Keewees (this is being enlarg-
ed), 2,500 tons of different
varieties of apples, 285 tons of
plums, fish from the fish
ponds, pears, wheat, com, cot-
ton and educational games.
It's a tall order to achieve so
much production with a limited
membership. Volunteers are,
therefore, welcome. Current
volunteers come from Den-

Sixteen female soldiers lived
on the Kibbutz as part of their
army training. Their period of
sevice ended while we were
there. As a final gesture, they
presented a show for the
members. The details, the
songs, dances and scenery
were all taken care of by the

guests shared in the party
preparations; they brought
cakes, fruits and candy to the

from high school also
presented their own version of

with them to the homes of the
students to offer congratula-
tions. It was a great feeling to
be part of that community.

factory (Orda). She assembled
the components that make up

ABA Upholds Agreement with Soviets
forts to break off an agree-
ment between the American
Bar Association (ABA) and a
government-guided Soviet
lawyers group were defeated
Tuesday (Aug. 12) at an ABA
convention here. This followed
a vigorous debate in which the
Soviet organization was de-
nounced by supporters and op-
ponents of the agreement alike
for fostering anti-Semitism
and human rights abuses.
The cooperation agreement
between the ABA and the
Association of Soviet Lawyers
(ASL) had been strongly
criticized by ABA members
and Jewish organizations
because of the Soviet group's
reputation as a propaganda
tool of the Kremlin. The ASL
has been involved most
notably in the publication of
anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic
THE ASL recently publish-
ed, together with the Anti-
Zionist Committee of the
Soviet Public, The White
Book, which bitterly de-
nounces Soviet Jews who seek
to emigrate.
Delegates to the convention
defeated a resolution to
abrogate the accord in a voice
vote after the ABA's policy-
setting body, the House of
Delegates, had recommended
that the agreement be main-
tained. But the 433 member
House is still scheduled to vote
this week on two resolutions
providing that "appropriate
opportunities" be taken to
raise human rights issues in
discussions with the ASL.
The vote in the House of
delegates to maintain the ac-
cord came after its proponents
acknowledged that the ASL
had a poor record on human
"I don't think that any of us
are under any illusions about
the ASL," said Judge Frank
Kaufman, a member of the
steering committee on ABA-
Soviet relations, to the
433-member body. "If there's
anything in the world that is
close to or even maybe worse
than the Goebbels propaganda
ministry, it's the ASL."
But Kaufman maintained
that "if you're going to talk on
an organized basis with Soviet
lawyers, you're going to have
to talk with the ASL."
ABA President William
Falsgraf said it would be "un-
thinkable" and "morally
reprehensible" for the
American lawyers organiza-
tion to "pass up the opportuni-
ty to bring attention to human
rights issues" in talks, made
possible by the agreement,
with "the top leadership of the
Soviet government."
The controversial agree-
ment, called a "Declaration of
Cooperation," was adopted by
the ABA Board of Governors
two months ago to replace a
much criticized accord con-
cluded in May, 1985. The new
version includes statements on
the commitment of both
lawyers organizations to the
rule of law. The agreement
provides exchanges of visits,
joint seminars, an exchange of
publications and other
cooperative activities.
Morris Abram, a lawyer and
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, de-
nounced the earlier agreement
in opening remarks to the
ABA convention as "an exer-
cise in unpardonable naivete
by ABA leaders." But he said
the modified version was "a
somewhat better-drafted
declaration of cooperation"
than the original because it
"sets the rule of law, human
rights and the improvement of
justice and legal services high
on the agenda."
"We should not scrap this
admittedly small advance
without putting it to the test,"
Abram told the ABA
delegates. He urged that the
agreement be used to raise
issues of human rights, in-
cluding Soviet Jewish emigra-
tion, with Moscow.
But Patience Juntwork, a
co-sponsor of the defeated
resolution to abrogate the ac-
cord, said she thought the
modified version was worse
than the original, because it
states that the ASL is "pledg-
ed to advance the rule of law in
the world."
"Actually, the Declaration of
Cooperation is even more ob-
jectionable than the original
agreement," Huntwork said.
"It gives the Soviets credit for
laudatory goals which in reali-
ty are not observed within
their legal system." Huntwork
referred specifically to the
"goals" section of the Declara-
tion, which attributes to the
Soviets, among other things,
the goals of promoting human
rights through law and of
assuring the highest standards
of ethical conduct by Soviet
Huntwork's view was
echoed by Morey Schapira,
president of the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews, who
said the modified version is
"lacking substance and serves
only the interest" of the ASL.
But Huntwork said she was
satisfied that her efforts
helped to sensitize the ABA to
Soviet violations of human
Fradokova Released
Nadezhda Fradokova, the only
woman Prisoner of Cons-
cience, was released from
prison last week and is now in
Leningrad, according to Lynn
Singer, Advisory Board
chairperson of the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews.
Fradokova had served two
years in a Soviet labor camp
for parasitism. She was refus-
ed a visa on the pretext of her
father's "access to state
secrets." Fradokova, a
mathematical linguist, staged
a number of hunger strikes
beginning in March, 1983.

Aggressive Treatment Improves Outlook for Stroke Victims
gressive" new techniques for
treating stroke in its acute
stage are resulting in about 50
percent of victims surviving
the initial attack and recover-
ing to function independently,
according to physicians at the
Hadassah-Hebrew University
Medical Center.
New diagnostic technology
that enables doctors to
monitor the course of a stroke
more accurately and im-
mediate treatment of abnor-
malities in breathing, blood
chemistry, metabolism and
other body functions are
credited with greatly improv-
ing the chances of recovery
among those suffering a stroke
for the first time, Dr. Eldad
Melamed, senior physician, in
the Medical Center's
Neurology Department,
Dr. Melamed and his medical
team at Hadassah recently
reviewed the histories of more
than 200 stroke victims who
were hospitalized at the
Center over the past five
"Once the stroke has occur-
red," Dr. Melamed says, "we
are achieving a lower in-
cidence of death due to the
supportive therapy we adopt
for treating the acute stage of
stroke in the first weeks, when
the patient is brought into the
hospital with not only his
brain, but his whole body in a
"If the patient
through the storm
developing complications, then
the chances for recovery are
very good," Dr. Melamed
adds. "With patients who have
a second stroke, however, the
prospects are worse."
The CAT scanner is enabling
doctors to diagnose damage
caused by stroke with greater
clarity and accuracy, and to
learn much more about how
the brain responds to hemor-
rhaging and damage or
destruction of nerve cells.
Physicians have found that
when circulation is restored,
nerve cells sometimes revive
to resume normal function.
More often, they say, other
cells take over.
Dr. Melamed cites the case
of an 80-year-old woman who
suffered a massive hemor-
rhage of the left rear portion
of her brain and severe
neurological impairment
partial paralysis, incoherent
speech, confusion and other
classic stroke symptoms. After
"aggressive" treatment by
Medical Center physicians she
was released from the hospital
to lead an independent life.
Subsequent examinations
revealed that while the damag-
ed area of the brain had
atrophied, the patient showed
no adverse neurological symp-
toms, and was functioning
"completely normally without
limitations," Dr. Melamed
He adds that doctors are
seeking ways to reduce
neurological damage caused by
strokes in their initial stages,
much as heart attack victims
are treated while enroute to
the hospital. A sudden surge in
blood sugar level is a special
danger to stroke victims and
not only those with diabetes.
Stroke victims with high blood
sugar levels are three times
more likely to die, he says.
"Generally there is a great
deal of research still to be done
before we understand how the
most mysterious of organs
the brain can return to nor-
mal after the damage caused
by a stroke," Dr. Melamed
He notes that the incidence
of stroke has declined
dramatically in the last decade
because people are eating less
animal fat, smoking less, exer-
cising and controlling

Hadassah 's 72nd Annual Convention
Assistant Secretary of State Discusses Soviet Jewry
Ambassador Richard
Schifter, Assistant Secretary
of State for Human Rights and
Humanitarian Affairs, ad-
dressed the opening banquet
of the 72nd annual convention
of Hadassah, the Women's
Zionist Organization of
America, which met at the
Fontainebleau Hilton Hotel in
Miami Beach.
"We see no significant signs
of improvement in the present
status of Jews in the Soviet
Union," Ambassador Schifter
said. "On the contrary, the
trend continues downward."
Looking at emigration
figures for the month of July,
1986, only 31 Russian Jews
were allowed to leave the
country equal to one percent
of the number allowed to
emigrate in 1979.
Close to 3,000 delegates
from throughout the United
States and Puerto Rico par-
ticipated in Hadassah's con-
vention in Florida, represen-
ting 385.000 members in 1,700
chapters nationwide. Several
members from the Palm
Beaches who sit on the Na-
tional Board were also in at-
tendance. They were Dorothy
Brill, Florida Atlantic Region
President; Dorothy Kaye and
Terry Rapaport.
Ambassador Schifter said,
"We need to be concerned that
the Soviets are now putting us
through a process of condition-
ing to get us to accept
gratefully and joyfully a few
minor high-profile human
rights gestures."
He said, "That is not what
we have in mind when we say
that we are looking for com-
pliance with international
agreements in the field of
human rights."
Closing his speech, Am-
bassador Schifter stated that
"It is incumbent upon every
citizen of the free world who
has contact with Soviet of-
ficialdom or prominent Soviet
citizens to drive home the
point that Soviet human rights
violations are unacceptable to
In addition to Ambassador
Schifter's remarks, the pro-
gram also included an address

bassador to the United States,

Students Organize for Israel
across the
activists from
tion gathered recently at the
University of Maryland to
create strategies for pro-Israel
political action this fall.
Discussions centered on Cam-
paign '86, lobbying Congress
for foreign aid appropriations
id edu
for Israel, and educating
classmates about Mideast
issues. "Your job is to make
America's campuses an asset
for Israel," Jonathan Kessler,
Political Leadership Coor-
dinator of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC), told the students.
The 140 students had come
together for the sixth annual
National Political Leadership
Training Seminar (NPLTS).
AIPACrs Political Leadership
Program, which Kessler
heads, sponsored the two-day
seminar to give pro-Israel
students needed tools to fight
for the "hearts and minds' of
America's next generation of
Summer interns in
Washington, D.C. joined the
student leaders from across
the country. "For the D.C. in-
terns, it was the culmination of
their internship on the Hill,
they learned the legislative
process; here, they learned
now to get involved," said
David Marchick, a junior at UC
San Diego interning in
"Pro-Israel students must
have the tools to organize, to
fight back against anti-Israel
propaganda, said AIPAC Ex-
ecutive Director Thomas A.
Workshops dealt with basics
such as "Getting Started"
(developing a pro-Israel
organization on campus);
"Organizing for Influence,"
and "Working with Campus
Media." Students also par-
ticipated in a panel discussion
on "The Campaign to
Discredit Israel," a workshop
on "Propaganda Response,'
and role-playing exercises led
by AIPAC student interns.
"Responding is not enough,"
said Dine. "You must reach
out, get involved in the
political process, make your
voices heard."
The students worked with
experts to design effective
campaign and lobbyini
strategies. They discuss*
ways to become involved in the
most important campaigns of
this election year. Daniel
Cohen, an AIPAC lobbyist,
shared his expertise on how to
present cases to congressmen.
Political professionals who
were formerly AIPAC student
activists shared strategies and
anecdotes about campus
"Hearing about the hurdles
they faced, and how they over-
came them, makes me see it
can be done," said Deborah
Rosen of Philadelphia, a
Brandeis senior.
Said Rachel Weinberg,
AIPAC's campus coordinator,
"When Congressional can-
didates see pro-Israel
volunteers working in their
campaigns, when Con-
gressmen receive letters from
scores of students in their
districts urging a pro-Israel
vote, Israel's case receives a
favorable hearing. And that
makes a world of difference."

Children's Clothing Needed
The response to the request
by the Single Parent Family
Committee of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County for donations of
clothing has been overwhelm-
ing. "We are having a tremen-
dous response from senior
citizens in the community but,
with the beginning of school,
we are really in need now of
children's clothing," stated
Linda Elias, Chairman of the
Single Parent Family
A "clothing bank" has been
established in cooperation with
Secondhand Rose of Park
Avenue, Inc., 939 Park
Avenue, Lake Park. The com-
munity is being asked to
donate clean and wearable
women's and children's
clothing which will be sold at
Secondhand Rose. The pro-
ceeds of these sales are being
put into an account for single
parents with reduced means to
enable them to purchase any
clothing in the store, not just
what is being donated by the
Jewish community.
Now the emphasis is on the
donation of primarily
children's clothing. "We would
like to be able to notify our
single parents that they can go
back to Secondhand Rose and
will find a great selection of
children's clothing," Ms. Elias
said. "I feel I can say this with
confidence because of the suc-
cess of our initial response.
When our community knows
what we need, I believe they
will continue to respond. It is
very gratifying to know that
we can count on a caring
Donations of clothing can on-
ly be made by contacting Ms.
Elias at 627-7777, not Secon-

The Gold Coast Council of
the B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization has selected the
new 1986-87 Chairpeople for
its Six Million Pennies Project,
now entering its seventh year.
Andrea Lebenson, Tracy Nor-
man and Scott Silverstein, all
of B'yachad BBYO in Palm
Beach Gardens are now at the
helm and intend to spur the
drive forward.
BBYO's Six Million Pennies
Project was created in 1979 by
the BBYO's youth leaders as a
way to commemorate the six
million Jews who perished in
the Holocaust. Those who in-
itiated the project found it dif-
ficult to fully comprehend the
magnitude of the figure "six
million" and thus embarked
upon a plan to collect six
million pennies in order to help
them to visualize its
At present, after six years of
constant collection efforts, not
only by BBYO but by the local
B'nai B'rith and B'nai B'rith
Women's groups, the total
figure stands at 1.7 million.
But the members have not
been discouraged; on the con-
trary, they have become more
determined than ever to in-
crease their efforts. And, of
course, the sheer length of the
project has indeed taught them
well the enormity of the
tragedy which the Jews suf-
fered at the hands of Nazis.
Said one member, "It's hard
Chaverim Looking
for Big Friends
The Jewish Community
Center's Big Friend/Little
Friend (Chaverim) Program
needs the community's help.
There are children between
the ages of 5-15 who are in
need of an adult role model...
guide ... friend (18 years old
and over). A Big Friend con-
tributes approximately two
hours per week doing various
activities with their Little
Friend. There is no cost to the
Big Friend except the cost of
the activities.
This relationship is one of
caring and sharing, according
to Eileen Klein, coordinator of
the Big Friend/Little Friend
(Chaverim) Program. "You
are on your own. You will not
be a baby sitter, parent
substitute or social worker,
but a Big Friend."
Anyone interested in par-
ticipating in this program, con-
tact Ms. Klein at the JCC,
to believe that after all these
years of collecting hundreds of
jars full of coins, that we still
haven't even approached our
final goal. Sure, it's
frustrating, but it certainly
forces you to think about just
how many individual lives
were actually lost in that total
of six million."
When the project is finally
completed the resulting
$60,000 will be allocated by the
Gold Coast Council youth to
organizations which work to
preserve the memory of the
Holocaust and to strengthen
the Jewish community.

Waldheim Kept Nazi War Secrets
Kurt Waldheim personally
kept under lock and key the
most sensitive secret
documents and papers of
Hitler's army in the Balkans
during the final year of World
War II.
So sensitive were these
documents a record of the
Nazi's secret communications
and orders that they were
all destroyed by the Germans
prior to their surrender.
This top secret records-diary
was given into the safe-
keeping of Oberleutnant (First
Lieutenant) Kurt Waldheim
according to a secret duties
schedule dated February 15,
1944 which was located among
captured war documents
stored in the U.S. National Ar-
chives. The document, found
by World Jewish Congress
researchers, has been
transmitted to the U.S. Justice
The document, labelled
"Geheim" ("secret"), was
issued from the headquarters
of the "High Command of Ar-
my Group E." It set forth
changes in the "work alloca-
tion of the High Command" of
this army group.
Among the changes in in-
dividual tasks specified in the
document were those of the
"03" intelligence officer at the
High Command. Waldheim
as he acknowledged to the
U.S. Justice Department in his
memo of AditI 6 was the
designated 03 officer.
(AS 03, he "was the deputy
of the chief intelligence officer
... responsible for all opera-
tional intelligence and the con-
trol of the intelligence staff."
- From the declassified study
"German Military In-
telligence" by the U.S. War
Department's Military In-
telligence Division, 1946.)
The document orders an ad-
dition to the work assignment
schedule which details the 03's
tasks. Responsibility for the
"VS-Brieftagebuch" (Records-
Diary) is assigned to the OS ac-
cording to this document,
which states that the ap-
propriate notation is to be in-
serted in the 03's work
schedule in the column prior to
where his responsibility for
assessment of the "enemy
situation" is specified.
"The VS (verschluss sachen)
Brieftagebuch" were the
army's most sensitive
documents kept "under lock
and key" (verschluss sachen
means literally, "locked up
According to the noted
historian Gerald Fleming,
(author of "Hitler and the
Final Solution"), "VS contain-
ed the record of secret orders
and communications and were
all destroyed by the Germans:
there is no knowledge of any
such record books surviving.
Beyond secret war plans,
orders such as those relating
to Jewish deportations and
reprisals were examples of the
kinds of confidential records
held in safe-keeping, Fleming
The WJC noted that the
work assignment order is in
fact confirmed by a previously-
released Nazi war document.
According to a December 1,
1943 organizational chart of
Army Group E, the hand-
written notation "VS Brief -
tagebuch" is located beneath
Waldheim's name in 03
Fleming stressed that
responsibility for the VS
records-diary was delegated
by the High Command "to the
most trusted officer within in-
telligence. "These locked-up
secret record-diaries were so
sensitive that a special con-
troller Regierungsinspektor
(government inspector) used
to check on the way they were
locked away by unexpected

visits," Fleming pointed out.
"For Kurt Waldheim to have
received this responsibility in
February, 1944, indicated the
High Command's complete
proven trust in him," Fleming
observed. The 1944 secret
work schedule also links
Waldheim with the "Abwehr"
(counter-intelligence), since
the order specifically assigns
Waldheim responsibility for
"personnel matters" of the
"Abwehr Troop."
In releasing the document
Thursday, the WJC again call-
ed on Attorney General Edwin
Meese "to enforce the law and
place Waldheim on the 'watch
list' of aliens excludable from
the United States." In April,
the Justice Department's Of-
fice of Special Investigations
concluded that under
American law, Waldheim
should be excluded as a "Nazi

High Holiday Ticket Donations
Benefit Single Parents

When Donna Kepnes heard
that the Single Parent Family
Committee of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County was once again asking
synagogues and temples for
donations of High Holiday
tickets for single parents, she
was thrilled. "How wonder-
ful!" she exclaimed. "Other-
wise, we wouldn't be able to
attend and we really enjoy go-
ing to services."
Local houses of worship are
responding affirmatively to
the request for ticket dona-
tions, according to Linda
Basch, Chairman of the High
Holiday Ticket Committee.
"We are beginning to hear
from temples and synagogues
as to what they can do this
year. They are also letting us
know if day care will be
available. Once we receive all
the replies, we will be able to
let single parent families know
that tickets will be available
for them."
To be eligible to receive the
tickets, single parents must
presently reside in Palm Beach
County and have children
under 18 years of age.
Ms. Kepnes, who has been a
single parent for five years,
had been affiliated with a tem-
ple previously. However,
because of other financial
responsibilities, she did not
pursue membership in a con-
gregation until recently. "We
go often to services and I am
working on trying to get the
children into a religious school
program," she said. Ms.
Kepnes has two daughters,
Michelle, 10, and Jill, 9.
Last year Ms. Kepnes, who
works as an aide at the Jewish
Community Center's Pre-
Schcol, heard about the High
Holiday ticket program
through the JCC. She received
tickets for herself and her
dauirhters, who sat with her at
services, to attend Temple

Syria, Libya, Iran Camouflaging
Terrorist Operations
AVIV (JTA) Syria, Libya
and Iran, the three Moslem
countries most closely involv-
ed with international ter-
rorism, have become more
careful about direct implica-
tion in terror activities against
American or Western targets,
according to Dr. Ariel Merari,
of Tel Aviv University's Jaffee
Center for Strategic Studies.
Merari, director of the
Center's Project on Terrorism,
was speaking at a press con-
ference presenting its Inter
'85, the second annual project
on terrorism covering the year
The three countries were
more careful to camouflage
any aid to international ter-
rorist operations, he said,
following the American air
strike against terrorist bases
near Tripoli, Libya, last year.
Moreover, he noted that the
raid had not been followed by
the anticipated outbreak of
anti-American revenge
BUT HE added that the
three nations doubtless con-
tinued to aid terrorism by
financial and training aid and
the provision of weapons and
sabotage equipment.
Merari cited an increase in
murderous and indiscriminate
terrorist activities carried out
by PLO groups in 1985 and
early this year, including
several "shop window" at-
tacks such as the onslaughts at
Rome and Vienna airports, the
Larnaca, Cyprus, massacre of
Israeli yachters, and the killing
of Israeli sailors in Barcelona

and the Achille Lauro attack.
The incidence of PLO at-
tacks was more than twice
that of previous years, he
noted, and the attacks were
more indiscriminate.
The 130-page Inter '85,
published for the Jaffee Center
by The Jerusalem Post, opens
with a statistical survey
describing the primary
characteristics of terrorist in-
cidents that took place
throughout the world during
THE SECOND part of the
volume surveys the main
trends and foci of interest
reflected in the statistics. It
focuses on three subjects
Shiite/Fundamentalist ter-
rorism, Palestinian terrorism
and the attitude adopted by
Western states to the dilemma
posed by international
It closes with three appen-
dices 18 detailed statistical
tables, a chronology of signifi-
cant international terrorist in-

South Africans will be allowed
to continue investing in Israel
up to a maximum of 40 million
Rands (about $15 million) dur-
ing the coming year, govern-
ment sources said.
Agreement on the continua-
tion of South African invest-

days of economic talks held by
Israeli officials in Pretoria
The Israel Finance Ministry
said that the negotiations,
which took place under a vir-
tual news blackout by the
Israeli government, had dealt
with credit lines for South
African exports to Israel,

"There is concern that the
South African government is
trying to use its commercial
agreement with Israel to
bypass a possible ban by some
