U.S. Won't End
Talks With PLO
WASHINGTON (JTA) Despite a U.S. rebuke of the
political program adopted last week by the main branch of the
Palestine Liberation Organization, the State Department said it
would not terminate its eight-month-old dialogue with the group.
State Department deputy spokesman Richard Boucher said
that PLO reaffirmation of its commitment to take practical steps
toward peace was "a very principal focus of the dialogue," but
he added that, "We didn't say if they don't (reaffirm the
commitment) we will stop" the dialogue.
At a meeting last week, also in Tunisia, Al Fatah, the main
PLO branch, approved a program that advocates "intensifying
and escalating armed action and all forms of struggle to
eliminate the Zionist Israeli occupation."
The State Department last week said the program contains
"derogatory rhetoric" and raises questions about Fatah's
commitment to peace.
A major U.S. topic at this week's meeting the fourth formal
U.S.-PLO meeting in Tunisia was urging the PLO to support a
dialogue between Israel and Palestinians.
Auschwitz Protests Mount Around World
Convent Strains Jewish-Catholic Relations
long-promised removal of the
Carmelite convent from Aus-

postponed by a Polish Catholic
cardinal, a move that Jewish
leaders say will severely strain
Catholic-Jewish relations.
Cardinal FraTiciszek

Krakow, announced on Vati-

built off the site of the former

The campaign, Macharski
said, was the work of "certain
Western Jewish circles."
Jewish organizations have
reacted with outrage, not only
at Macharski's nullification of
the agreement to move the
convent, but at the wording of
his statement.
Numerous Jewish organiza-
tions have publicly protested
for the convent's removal, and
demonstrations have been
mounted at the convent itself.
Last month, seven New
York Jewish activists climbed
over the fence surrounding the
convent, and asked to speak
with the nuns. They were

led the demonstration at Aus-
chwitz, called for Jewish lead-
ers to "freeze dialogue" with
the Vatican until the convent
is moved.
Weiss, who released his
statement from Israel where
he is visiting, also said the
Polish government should bear
responsibility for the convent,

of Poland by Israel and world

New Director Busy Recruiting For High School In Israel
Seama Barat's reasons for
taking the position of Director
of Admissions for the Alexan-
der Muss High School in Israel
had everything to do with her
son's positive experience as a
participant in the program last
"The High School in Israel
program is unlike any Israel
program I've ever heard of,"
Mrs. Barat said. "It gave my
son an incredible new sense of
self and completely heightened
his whole sense of traditional
Judaism and Israel," she
explained. "I was so turned on
after my son's experience that
when the position opened up, I
knew I wanted it."
The Alexander Muss High
School in Israel is a carefully
planned eight-week study pro-
gram that gives 11th and 12th
grade American students the
opportunity to learn the his-
tory of western civilization in
the most magnificent class-
room in the world the land
of Israel.
A mother of two teenagers,
Barat has always been
involved with Jewish educa-
tion. When she lived in Miami,
she taught at her Temple's
pre-school and after moving to
Palm Beach County six years
ago, she started the pre-school
at Temple Beth David in Palm
Beach Gardens. Before that
she was the Hebrew School
Coordinator at the Temple. In
addition to her new Director of
Admissions position, she and a
partner have owned their
own business for four years:
The Dapper Wrapper, provid-
ing gift and gourmet food bas-
kets and party design and
Currently, Mrs. Barat is
recruiting students for the

of whom are students at Mid-

Israeli Authorities
Considering Penalties
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli authorities are considering
penalties against a correspondent of the Sunday Times of
London for filing a story which claimed that two Israeli
soldiers held hostage by Hezbollah in Lebanon are long
dead, Ha'aretz reported this week.
The story, widely quoted here and abroad, was not
submitted to the military censor.
Davar quoted a reliable diplomatic source in Washington
as saying that Israel has information indicating that the
soldiers held by Hezbollah were alive several months ago.
Contrary to the Sunday Times story, the IDF never
informed the families that the men died in captivity, Davar

Religious Wars May Soon Be Over
religious wars between two
ultra-Orthodox factions may
soon be over.
Both sides have made peace
overtures promising an end to
the bitter feud between the
Hasidim and Mitnagdim,
which reached a peak during
last year's Knesset election
Rabbi Pinhas Menachem
Alter, chairman of the Agudat
Yisrael party's central com-
mittee and brother of the
aging rebbe of Gur, made the
first move with an appeal for
peace published Friday in the
party newspaper, Hamodia.
The rival newspaper, Yated
Ne'eman, published a front-
page reply Sunday, welcoming
Alter's call.
The paper is the mouthpiece
of Rabbi Eliezer Schach of
Bnei Brak, head of the Mit-
naged faction and the Degel
HaTorah party. The editorial
stressed Schach's own public
protestations that he seeks
peace and dialogue.
Relations between the two
factions of the ultra-Orthodox
community reached an all-time
low recently, when both camps
announced plans to establish
separate schools so their chil-
dren would no longer study

Railroads Led To Nazi Death Camps
A railroad freight car used
to transport thousands of Jews
to Treblinka, Nazi killing cen-
ter in Poland in 19U2-U8, has

Museum by the Polish Govern-
ment. The freight car, one of a

In his classic work, The
Destruction of the European
Jews, the noted Holocaust
scholar Raul Hilberg writes
that the implementation of
Hitler's prophecy, the destruc-
tion of the Jewish population,
was "a vast administrative
undertaking" and that the rail-
roads played an integral role in
the destruction process.

camps was almost invariably
accomplished by railway,

Nearly three million Jews
and thousands of other victims
were transported to the death
camps via rail. Jews who lived
in villages were marched or
brought by truck from their
homes to larger towns with
train stations.
Numerous German and non-
German agencies, both local
and national, uniformed and
civilian, were involved in the
deportation process, but, Hil-
berg writes, the two agencies
directly involved in the mass
murder operation were the

The deportation of Jews,
referred to as "passengers"
and transported like cattle,
became part of regular proce-
dure with respect to schedul-
ing and billing. In fact, the
security office was the agency
billed for the one-way tickets
for "passengers" on the trains
leading to death.
Theoretically, freight cars
used in deportations were to
hold 60 to 70 people as well as
their belongings. In practice,
they were often packed with
twice that number. Although
death was to be implemented
in gas chambers, life often

could not absorb the number of

The Lesson of Lebanon
As the combined forces of Syrians, Druze
and Palestinians wage an increasingly all-out
war against the Lebanese Christian army and
militia units, there is a painful lesson being
brought home to those who advocate unilat-
eral movements by Israel for peace.
France is sending one frigate "to increase
the French naval presence" off Lebanon and
has offered to help any French nationals
remaining in the war torn nation which is
Israel's northern neighbor. But France, which
held a League of Nations mandate over
Lebanon at the same time Great Britain ruled
Palestine, has done precious little else.
Neither the Vatican or any of the predomi-
nantly Catholic nations of Europe has come to
the aid of the Christian minority in Lebanon,
even as the horror of the constant artillery
bombardment reduces Beirut to little more
than a pile of rubble.
What, then, could Israel rely on if it turned
its fate over to an outside power or combina-
tion of nations should her Arab neighbors
again unite against the Jewish State?
That is why Israeli statesmen constantly
state they would rather lose the public rela-
tions war then set the stage for what could
become the end of the reborn State of Israel.
Egypt made peace with Israel when Sadat
became convinced that he could never achieve
his country's goals through force. Other Arab
countries, and the Palestinian Arabs, likewise,
can only be expected to come to the bargaining
table with a strong Israel.
As to those who said that if Israel kept its
hands off the struggle between the Christians
and the Moslems-Druze combine, then it would
not take long to reach a solution, the "final"
battle for Beirut gives lie to that unrealistic
In fact, Israel's self-proclaimed security
zone in southern Lebanon has kept the major
fighting well away from the Israeli border
even though the south of Lebanon is home to
PLO competing factions, Shiite competing
factions and other components of the complex
Lebanese mix.
Iraq, seeking to "get even" with Syria for
its backing of Iran in the recent Persian Gulf
war, is supporting the Lebanese Christians
with sophisticated weapons. These may pre-
vent the genocide of the Christians, but hardly
add to the prospects for peace.
And then there's the matter of the nearly
50,000 "peace-keeping" forces of Syria in
Lebanon. No one can really doubt that they
are there as part of Damascus' never-ending
dream of a "Greater Syria." In case you've
forgotten, "Greater Syria" includes all of
Lebanon, all of Israel and all of the Israeli-
administered territories.
The lesson of Lebanon is all too clear.

Allies Against Terror
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir sent a letter to President
George Bush last week prais-
"ing the President for his han-
dling of the hostage crisis.
Shamir said that Israel is
working to secure the release
of all the hostages held by
terrorists in Lebanon. He also
emphasized that Israel wants
to work more closely with the
United States to resolve the
situation. Shamir followed up
the letter with a 12-minute
phone conversation last Wed-
nesday during which he
repeated his message.
The Shamir-Bush communi-
cation was the latest indication
that the two allies are once
again working in concert. The
same day, the Boston Globe
published a transcript of an
interview with the President
in which Bush stressed Ameri-
can support for Israel.
Bush said the United States
has a different policy than
Israel for dealing with hos-
tages. But, he said, "we are
not going to permit this hap-
pening tor the moment to
drive a wedge between Israel
and the United States. I'll
make that point clear ... But
the fundamental strategic
relationship will be kept funda-
mentally strong."
When asked if, in hindsight,
he believed Israel was wrong
to abduct Sheik Obeid, Bush
said: "No. I can*t say it's
wrong and I can't say it's
He was also asked if the
United States would ever
engage in such an action. Bush
said he would sanction an
abduction if the United States
"could find somebody where
the evidence was overwhelm-
ing and would stand up in
court and where there was an
indictment and proper proce-
dures before our law.''
A reporter suggested
Israel's behavior showed that
U.S. and Israeli interests often
diverge. "Sometimes the
interests may not dovetail on
something of this nature,"
Bush said. "But the point I
want to make is that the over-
all fundamental relationship
with Israel and the United
States is very important and
will transcend any difficulties
that might come from a lack of
dovetailing. But, sometimes,
you do have differences with
friends." Bush added that he
did not believe any reasses-
ment of the U.S.-Israel rela-
tionship was in order.
Some congressmen have cal-
led for Sheik Obeid to be extra-
dited. Bush said he did not
know if Obeid was implicated
in the kidnapping of Col. Hig-
gins, but stated: "I would try
to bring to justice anybody
who had anything to do with
the kidnapping ..."
Israel's skillful abduction of
one of Hezbollah's key leaders
has renewed hope for the
release of American and
Israeli hostages. The West
now has some leverage over
the terrorists responsible.
Together, the United States
and Israel have an opportunity
to strike a blow against terror.

The American public is jus-
tifiably preoccupied with the
welfare of Americans held hos-
tage in Lebanon. Some rushed
to blame Israel for the murder
of Lt. Col. William Higgins,
though intelligence officials
here and in Israel are fairly
certain Higgins was killed long
before the Israeli abduction of
Sheik Obeid. Now the terror-
ists are hoping to capitalize on
what they view as a wedge
between the two allies. By
suggesting that American hos-
tages might be released if
Israel frees Obeid and
hundreds of Shiite and Pales-
tinian prisoners, kidnappers
hope to put Israel in the posi-
tion of abandoning its missing
soldiers or risking American
The American public should
understand that one of the
reasons Israel captured Obeid
was to obtain the release of
three soldiers. Israelis believe
that their soldiers must go into
battle knowing their govern-
ment will do everything in its
power to secure their freedom
should they be captured. Con-
sequently. Israel has explored
every possible avenue to gain
the release of the men in
Lebanon, but nothing worked.
The decision to seize Obeid
was part calculated gamble
based on past precedent and
part desperation.
Americans are accustomed
to seeing the families of hos-
tages on television making
appeals, but they do not see
the Israeli families who are no
less aggrieved. The wife of one
of the Israeli soldiers came to
Washington recently hoping
that someone here in or out of
the government might be able
to do something to free her

Behind The Headlines:
Peace Process Appears Stalled As
Both Sides Harden Positions
peace process aimed at ending
the Intifada seems to have
foundered in the past week as
both Israelis and Palestinians
made moves that indicated
hardened positions.
These developments have
exposed a paradox in Israeli
policy in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
While authorities say they
want to build up local Arab
leadership that would replace
the Palestine Liberation
Organization, they have taken
actions that seem almost calcu-
lated to have the opposite

When Alter and other Agu-
dah leaders refused, Schach
broke away to set up his own
party, Degel HaToran, and his
newspaper, Yated Ne'eman,
which pursued a vigorous
offensive against Chabad.
Chabad threw the weight of
its influence to Agudah, which
emerged from the elections
with five Knesset seats. Degel
won two seats, considered a
good showing for a party that
did not exist a few months
before Election Day.
Rabbi Alter, in his call Fri-
day for "peace and unity,"
noted that in rabbinic tradition
the Temple was destroyed
"because of needless hatred."
He recalled that Agudah's
Council of Torah Sages had
urged a reconciliation and that
the founders of Agudah early
in the century were leaders of
the Hasidic camp.
His father, who was the
rebbe of Gur, and the Chafetz
Chaim, always worked "in
close harmony and mutual
respect," he said.
Now he proposed to convene
the Council of Torah Sages to
hear "all sides and all issues."

lic figures now hope that a
roundtable can soon be set up
which will end the schism."
territory, Yitzhak Mordechai,
imposed harsh measures
against the local population.
Mordechai was sending a
clear message to the local pop-
ulation: Regardless of political
developments, they would suf-
fer collective punishment.
If past experience is any
indication, the Palestinian
response will be an escalation
of violence.
Indeed, the local leadership
of the uprising circulated Leaf-
let 44 on Tuesday forbidding
Palestinians from holding
talks with Israelis who do not
"support the Palestinian
demand for self-
determination" meaning
That directive, if obeyed,
would put an end to the recent
semi-secret, informal talks
between influential Palestini-
ans and ranking Israelis,
including Prime Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir.
In the past, the Intifada
leadership subjected such talks
to approval by the "authorized
bodies," meaning the PLO.
The latest directive could
mean that the radical elements
in the local Palestinian leader-
ship have won.
In that case, the dialogue
with Israelis will end and with
them the chances of Israel

U.S. News And World Report
11 was heartbreaking to watch American hostage
Joseph Cicippio plead for the release of the
captured terrorist Pitiful to see an American citi-
zen so reduced by captivity Galling to know that
once again terrorists were exploiting the platform of
television. And shaming, for a time, to think that
pity and despair might be the sum total of the
American response It seems now that we were
preparing a military strike, but the initial state-
ments from the President and others fell well short
of the bravery of Colonel Higgins. He understood
what wearing an American uniform is all about.
Before his abduction and murder, he said: "We can
be kidnapped. We can be shot at. But this is a
part of our daily lives." He is part of a
long tradition of American honor.
Thousands captured in war have en-
dured mental and physical torture rath-
er than betray their comrades or their
country. In times of war, America un-
derstands something fundamental
that it is in the nature of warfare that
some are sacrificed and that their sacri-
fice is legitimized and elevated by the
preservation of our future and our chil-
dren and our values.
America is at war todaya war
against terrorism This war has killed hundreds of
U.S. citizens241 blown up in the Marine barracks

Colonel Higgins: 63 killed in the Beirut embassy
explosion: 270 civilians murdered by the bomb on
Pan Am 103.
!: is no wonder we -re a targe; foe terrorism. We
area powerful nationbut when attacked we wring
our hands. We seek to rationalize why we cannot
act. We seem to be governed more by our fears than
by our principles. Our scruples are genuine enough.
Responding to terror does nsk innocent lives, n
does raise a variety of moral principles But not
responding risks more in human life and moral
principle. We are not dealing with enemies who
behave rationally by our code of conduct What is
restraint to us is weakness to them
Terrorism will not be stopped bv appeasement. If
all the terrorists need to do is to threaten an
"execution" -murder is the accurate wordthey
will announce executions forever. If we are going to
be paralyzed every time a hostage is threatened or
killed in this war, we might as well roll over now.
The weakness of will has been manifest in the
response to Israel's capture of a terrorist leader.
Israel, knowing too well the animus of the terrorist,
sought a bargaining chip for the release of its own
soldiers and perhaps even the citizens of other
countries. How proud we would have been had U.S.
forces been capable of such a coup against the
kidnappers of Americans. For this, the Israelis
should have been cheered. Instead, we had Bob
Dole blaming Israel in one of the more repulsive and
craven statements since Munich, and the President
himself seeming to equate Israel's capture of a
terrorist with a terrorist kidnapping of
an innocent. The President and Secre-
tary of State rebuked Israel with the
statement that kidnapping and violence
do not help the cause of peace. The
cause of peace! What in the world do
they think these terrorists are about? It
is akin to rebuking the Chinese students
for causing the bloodshed in Tienanmen
Square. How morally shameful that we
present ourselves as treating terrorism
and its victims in an evenhanded way.
America must make clear that we
will exact a price for acts of terrorism, from the
terrorists and from those who support and encour-
age them President Reagan understood this when
he bombed Libya, forcing Muammar Qadhafi un-
derground: when US jets forced down the murder-
ers of the Achille Lauro: when we capturednot
kidnapped an Arab leimnsi and brought him to
trial. America supported all these actions with a
bold heart. It was only when Reagan tried through
appeasement and bribery to buy back American
prisoners that he and the Presidency sorTered
It is only when America is not terrorized by
terrorism that terrorists are paralyzed No wonder
the terrorists did not announce the execution of
Israelisonly of Americans. Terrorist brutality
will not lose its capacity to shock America 8.000
miles away as we looked on the body of Colonel
Higgins. Let us act in his memory. That is why we
have a Commander in Chief. That is why the
American eagle has the olive branch of peace in one
claw and the arrows of war clutched in theother.
300 professionals from 27 dif-
ferent countries including
Israel and every part of the
Diaspora, Eastern Europe,
Australia, and Latin America.
With "Continuity and
Change" as the symposium's
major theme, the concrete
problems addressed included:
The best way to deal with the
rising number of disabled
elderly; the implications of the
changing family for commun-
ity service needs; how to har-
ness the potential contribution
of the many able-bodied
elderly and the increasing
number of young retirees and
how to advance intergenera-
tional ties and promote a feel-
ing of solidarity in meeting
total community needs.
A special evening session
was held to honor JDC for its
75 years of assistance to the
Jewish elderly. Bert Rabinow-
itz, member of JDC's Board of
Directors and Executive Com-
mittee and Chairman of its
Brookdale Committee, in
opening the session, pointed
out that while JDC has always
been action-oriented, it has
increasingly emphasized the
importance of professional
research to further its objec-
tives. "This symposium,"
Rabinowitz said, "dedicated to
the process of learning from
experience and to the disse-
mination of what we will have
learned, is another expression
of that commitment.
Rapidly Aging World Examined
The Jewish world is aging
more rapidly than any compar-
able Western population
group, with one out of every
six Jews currently over the
age of 65. In the Diaspora, the
percentage of elderly Jews is
even higher, with almost one
in ten expected soon to be over
the age of 75. And while the
total world Jewish population
is expected to decline from
some 13 million today to 12
million by the year 2010, the
number of elderly Jews over
the age of 75 is increasing.
"This aging process has pro-
found social and economic
implications for Jewish com-
munities around the world,"
said Jack Habib, Director of
the JDC-Brookdale Institute of
Gerontology and Adult Human
Development in Israel, "and
the challenge it poses was the
focus of attention at the
Second International Sympo-
sium on Aging in the Jewish
World that convened last week
in Jerusalem." Organized by
JDC-Israel, JDC-Brookdale,
and the International Coordin-
ating Council on Aging in the

Message From
The President
The mission of a Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service is uniquely and dramatically
challenging, for it is our mandate to enhance
the quality of living for everyone searching
assistance, spanning the entire economic,
familial and cultural spectra. On the most
fundamental level, we assist those whose
lives are in physical threat, be the problem
starvation (which does exist in Palm Beach
County), illness or isolation. These are the
gutwrenching dilemas which our community
collectively faces continuously in attending
to the concerns of those less fortunate,
responsibilities which our professionals
accept with grace and dedication.
That same mandate, though, directs the
Service to sensitively focus on issues
impacting on our potential to sustain those
value systems inherent within 'Yiddishkeit'
to strengthen our family unit, maintain the
links between generations and empower the
community to look not only reminiscently to
the past but expectantly to the future. We
counsel, we educate, we train, we lecture
and along with those whose lives we touch,
we grow.
Our Governing Board is proactive, involved
and aggressively fine-tuned to current needs.
Through their creative enthusiasm and the
imaginative persistence of our Executive
Director, our JF&CS has succeeded in devel-
oping a revolutionary program to help fami-
lies coping with the demands of Alzheimer's
Disease. We have become a national focus
for consultation in geriatric social work,
while at the same time excelling in child and
single or dual-parent family counseling.
And we continue to grow! With each year
the successes become more exciting, and
our Board and Committees expand with
people enthusiastic to give of their time,
insights, and of course, opinions. I look
forward, over the coming years and years, to
further growth and to the pleasure and
inspiration of meeting people moved by the
reward of improving their society.

Message From The
Executive Director
1988/89 (5749) has been an exciting year
for Jewish Family and Children's Service. It
saw the success of our innovative Neighbor
helping Neighbor (hiring and training retirees
to provide respite care for Alzheimer's fami-
lies), the development of an Alzheimer's Day
Care Program at Temple Israel, thanks to a
grant from Brookdale Foundation, Work/
Family Foundation, and the Lowe Founda-
tion, and the expansion of many other pro-
grams, not only for elderly but for children,
young families and everyone else.
The excitement will continue into this next
year. The state has agreed to continue our
Neighbor helping Neighbor and our other
programs also seem promising.
The importance, however, of these pro-
grams and the other services provided by our
agency, is not their unique and innovative
nature, nor the fact that they are flowers in
the desert.
They represent an oasis of social service
for the elderly in what can at best be
described as a semi-arid land.
This community, our community, is the
11th largest Jewish community in the United
States. But the level of public and voluntary
service provided both within and without the
Jewish community would be inadequate for a
community half our size.
We at Jewish Family and Children's Ser-
vice pledge ourselves to work, imagine and
build the services to meet our community's
desparate needs. We hope you will join with
us, as a volunteer, as a contributor, or just
with your prayers.
And remember, if you need us, we'll do
everything in our power to be there for you.

Volunteers For Israel
By Lenny Rom
and Larry Wartell
The Volunteers For Israel
program started in 1982 when
630 American Jews went to
work on settlements in the
Golan Heights to alleviate a
manpower shortage brought
on by the Lebanese War.
The operation proved suc-
cessful and has continued and
expanded up to the present.
The minimum requirements
for participation are that you
be between 18 and 70 years old
and in good shape. The age
range of our group was
between 33 and 69 and about
20% were repeat participants
and 60% were from the U.S.A.
Almost every religion was rep-
resented among us. We each
chose to spend our three-week
volunteer period either work-
ing in a hospital, on a kibbutz
or in the army (our choice).
Our El-Al flight left Miami
on May 2nd, 1989, with 102
volunteers from South Flor-
ida, Orlando, Tampa, St. Pet-
ersburg and about half a dozen
from elsewhere. (A special air-
fare is usually offered to volun-
teers depending on the time
of year they travel.) We
arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport
in Tel Aviv the next evening
and split up into seven groups,
each headed for a different
Our group of 26 was sta-
tioned on an army tank main-
tenance base. When we
arrived, we went straight to
our new home: a three-story
barracks with assigned rooms,
men on one side women on the
other. The married women
who came with their husbands
were particularly happy when
they realized they wouldn't
have to wash their husband's
clothes for three weeks.
Our first day was spent
climbing in and out of army
fatigues and boots until we
each found something that fit.
Afterwards, we were sent to
work wherever we were
needed. The jobs ranged from
painting fences, fixing carbur-
etors, working in the mess hall
or cleaning the barracks. I
worked at the quarter master
building, collecting dirty uni-
forms and handing out clean
ones. We also gave the soldiers

on maneuvers.
The workday was 8 a.m. to 4
p.m., four and half days a
week. One day a week we went
sightseeing (the Rothchild win-
ery, Haifa, Caesarea, Jerusa-
lem, etc.) and on Friday and
Saturday some of us checked
into a hotel facing the ocean in
Tel Aviv for a weekend of
beach, sun, water and fun.
Others went to stay at a kib-
butz or a moshav or just rested
up in camp and wrote mail or
We ate in the dining hall
with the soldiers and wore the
same fatigues they did. We got
to know some of them and
experienced how they live.
Among ourselves, we formed
some close friendships, cele-
brating a birthday, sharing
medicines, offering sympathy
and exchanging information
and opinions on how to
straighten out the world as we
sat in our "coffee-library rest
room." While we shared camp
life together, our work experi-
ences and our evenings and
weekend excursions differed
so that each of us came home
with a unique set of happen-
ings and memories to share.
Aside from feeling we were
making a worthwhile contribu-
tion of our time and effort, our
group found that the real trea-
sure in the Volunteers For
Israel program was in the uni-
que vignettes gathered
through our contact with the
people. It's an experience you
must experience. I can't say
more than that.

Israelis Taunted In German Stree'

which lasted some 20 minutes, the Israelis felt threatened
and left.
The three neo-Nazis, described as Skinheads, shouted at
the Israelis "Juden Raus" and urged them to leave the

unprecedented Soviet invita-
tion to the relatives of Raoul
Wallenberg has left activists
hopeful of uncovering the fate
of the Swedish diplomat, who
disappeared behind the Iron
Curtain soon after rescuing
some 100,000 Hungarian Jews
during World War II.
In Stockholm, Soviet
Ambassador to Sweden Boris
Pankin invited Nina Lager-
gren and Dr. Guy von Daniel,
Wallenberg's half-sister and
half-brother, to come to Mos-
cow in October for meetings
with high level Soviet govern-
ment officials.
The move represents the
first time since Wallenberg's
arrest by Russian secret police
in January 1945 that the Sovi-
ets have acknowledged Wal-
lenberg family members'
requests for a meeting.
"The main thing that we
have is the opportunity to see
and talk" with officials, said
Lagergren and von Dardel, in
a communication with their
supporters in the United
States. "In our interviews in
Sweden, we stressed the
importance of the whole
world's interest in, and work
for, Raoul."
International efforts on
behalf of Wallenberg, a Lut-
heran, have been spurred by
the breadth of his rescue activ-
ities on behalf of Jews during
the Holocaust.
In early 1944, Wallenberg,
then 32, joined the Swedish
diplomatic corps in Budapest
at the request of the United
By the time the Russian
army entered Budapest in Jan-
uary 1945, at least 120,000 of
the city's 230,000 Jews had
eluded the Nazis's deporta-
tions, 100,000 directly as a
result of Wallenberg's actions.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
Six tribes each, atop mount Ebal and mount Gerizim, with the
Ark in the valley between.
. "Thou shall set the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the
curse upon mount Ebal"
(Deut. 11.29).
RE'EH "Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a
curse: the blessing, if ye shall hearken unto the commandments of
the Lord your God, which I command you this day; and the curse,
if ye shall not hearken" (Deuteronomy 11.26). When the Israelites
enter Canaan, six tribes are to stand upon Mount Gerizim and
bless all those who will keep God's commandments, and six tribes
are to stand on Mount Ebal and curse all those who will disobey
God s commandments.
Sacrifices are to be offered only in the place that God shall
choose. He who wishes to offer a meat sacrifice which he may eat,
and lives too far from the proper place of offering, may slaughter
the offering in his own house, but it will not be considered a
sacrifice. He must be careful not to consume any of the blood.
Those who incide others to idolatrous acts are to be extermin-
ated. The portion goes on to state the rules defining purity and
impurity in regard to animals, fish and fowl the bask ritual
dietary laws. The portion also contains the rules regarding tithes,
and regulations regarding the Hebrew slave, the first born of
animals, and the three pilgrim festivals.

Conservative Leaders Urge
Unity On Conversion
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.
Following the Israeli
supreme court's decision last
month that Conservative con-
verts must be registered as
Jews in Israel, Conservative
leaders again urged leaders
from each branch of Judaism
to help develop a unified and
mutually respected approach
to conversion.
According to Franklin
Kreutzer, president of United
Synagogue of America, it is
clear that despite the decision
by the High Court of Justice,
Conservative converts con-
tinue to suffer discrimination
in other areas.
For example, Rabbi Mena-
chem Porush, head of the
ultra-Orthodox Agudath Israel
party, spoke of the potential
need to open "a book of real
Jews and a book of doubtful
In addition, Orthodox con-
version certificates are still
required for marriages per-
formed in Israel.
In searching for possible
solutions to the problem,
Rabbi Jerome Epstein, senior
vice president of United Syna-
gogue, suggested, "the liberal
factions within the Jewish
community must be willing to
require converts to follow the
traditional guidelines for con-
"The traditional faction," he
added, "must also be willing to
recognize that it is the process
that should determine the
validity of the conversion,
rather than the pedigree of the
supervising rabbi."
Kreutzer affirmed the Con-
servative position that all con-
versions must be performed
according to halachah, but ins-
isted that activities of Dias-
pora rabbis must be accorded
appropriate respect and dig-
"Conservative Jews will not
accept second-class Israeli citi-
zenship," he said.
