Michael Burrows and Irving
Kaufman, co-chairmen for the
Gala Community Dinner
Celebration given on behalf of
the 1983 Jewish Federation of

announced that the Honorable
Moshe Arens, Israel's am-
bassador to the United States,
will be the keynote speaker at
the event. The dinner will be
held on Tuesday, January 18,
1983 at the Breakers in Palm
Beach with a minimum $1,000
commitment to the campaign.
Michael Burrows and Irving
Kaufman stated, "We are
fortunate that Ambassador

Myron J. Nickman, general
campaign chairman for the
1983 Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County-United
Jewish Appeal campaign,
urged the community to
support the Gala Dinner Cele-
bration. "We must continue
to provide needed humanitar-
ian social services both in our
community and in Israel
through our regular annual
campaign. In addition, this
year it is necessary to make an
extra one-time effort to raise
funds for the 1983 Israel
Special Fund."
One hundred percent of the
monies collected on the second
line of the 1983 pledge cards,
Special Fund, will be allocated
to Israel to provide for social
welfare services that were
curtailed in carrying out
"Operation Peace for
Galilee." The Israeli govern-
ment, which had to redirect
funds which had been
projected to support these
social welfare programs, is de-
pending on overseas Jewry to
lend an additional helping
hand so that these initial
programs can be maintained.
Ambassador Arens, born in
Kaunus, Lithuania im-
migrated to the United States
in 1933 and made aliyah to
Israel in 1948 where he joined
the underground Irgun Zvai
Leumi, headed by Menachem
Begin. Ambassador Aren's
Irgun activities of organizing
self defense in Jewish com-
munities in North Africa and
Europe were influential to his
later political career.
In 1951, Ambassador Arens
returned to the United States
for studies at the
Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and then at the
California Institute of
Technology where he received
his degree in aeronautical
engineering. He worked for a
time in the aircraft industry in
the United States, then
returned to Israel to teach at
the Technion in Haifa and
become deputy director and
head of the Israel Aircraft
Ambassador Arens was
deputy chairman of Herut and
was a member of the Knesset
since 1974. He was appointed
as ambassador to the United
States in January 1982.

Israel Drops Its Demand
The Cabinet announced that
Israel has dropped its demand
that negotiations with Leba-
non be held alternately in
Jerusalem and Beirut and
stated that "the venue of the
negotiations will be deter-
mined in contacts between the
governments of Israel and
The announcement ap-
peared to remove a major ob-
stacle to the start of formal
negotiations between the two
countries for the withdrawal
of foreign forces from Leba-
non and security arrange-
ments. It followed a statement
by Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon that he had personally
achieved a "breakthrough"
on negotiations in talks with
undisclosed Lebanese leaders
in Beirut recently.
It also followed comments
to the media by President Rea-
gan in Washington over the
weekend characterizing the
armies of Israel, Syria and the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization forces still in Leba-
non as "armies of occupa-
tion," a description which he
seemed to apply most em-
phatically to the Israeli army.
In addition, U.S. special en-
voy Philip Habib delivered a
letter from Reagan to Premier
Menachem Begin in which the
President forcefully urged Is-
rael to pull out of Lebanon
without further delay.
The contents of Reagan's
letter were not disclosed, but
informed sources said it put
the onus primarily on Israel

Challenge and Response
The Case For The 1983 Campaign
Challenge: Why does the Women's Division hold a separate Annual
Campaign to raise funds for the Jewish Federation-U JA campaign?
Response: At campaign time, this question often arises. By a woman giving
in her own name, she is making her own statement her own value judgement
her owncommitment to the ideals of the survival of the Jewish people.
Challenge: What events does Women's Division hold to support the
Response: As part of the effort to provide for Jewish needs locally, in Israel
and throughout the world, Women's Division has planned several events. These
include the $1,000 Minimum Luncheon (already held), the $5,000 Lion of Judah
Inaugural Luncheon on Jan. 12, the $8,500 National Palm Beach Luncheon on
Jan. 19, the $4,000 National Palm Beach Luncheon on Feb. 7, a $500-$999
Event on March 9, Women's Division Tennis Cup on March 25 and the

enhance its Annual Campaign?
Response: In addir >n to the creation of the Lion of Judah, $5,000
minimum category, a new portfolio to research new and existing gifts and to
include follow through with personal solicitation has been initiated. Women's

Chaplain Aides and Day School Students
Bring Chanukah Joy To Elderly
Chairman, Chaplain Aide
The children of the Benjamin S. Hornstein Jewish Community Day School
are still excited about their Chanukah experiences at residences for the elderly.
And many of the elderly recall with great pleasure, the Chanukah melodies
brought to them by the children and members of the Federation Chaplain Aide
Program. Chanukah programs, many complete with latkes, doughnuts and
other Chanukah treats, were presented at seventeen facilities for the elderly
during Chanukah week.
The joyous spirit of the holiday was captured in the blaze of Chanukah
candles, the enthusiastic singing and dancing of the Day School children, grades
one through eight, their teachers, the school choir, talented members of the
Chaplain Aide Program and other members of the community. Both Jewish and
non-Jewish residents at the centers for the elderly heard explanations of the
holiday and its traditions, including why we eat latkes on Chanukah.
Cantor Elaine Shapiro Zimmerman of Temple Beth El appeared at one
center for the Elderly and put on a delightful program with her guest, Cantor
Abraham Barzak, from Patterson, New Jersey. Rabbi Alan Sherman presented
a Chanukah program at Glades Prison.
Members of the Chaplain Aide Program who participated in the programs
throughout the week were Ida Mae and Nat Allweiss, Sylvia Berger Ida
Blauner, Isadore and Yetta Dein, Alec Jacobson, Selma Horowitz, Jeanne
Glasser, Herman Linshes, Bea and Murray Kern, Use Mollen, Belle Lasher.
Helen and Bernard Fine, Pauline Edelson, Eddie Starr, Al Stillman and Phillip
Slier. Teachers from the Benjamin S. Hornstein Jewish Community Day School
participating were: Maya Gabriella, Renee Seal, Roslyn Pomerantz, Rachael
Stem, Soshana Walner and Jack Rosenbaum.

The Chaplain Aide Program is made possible through contributions to the Jewish Federation ot Palm Beach County/United Jewish Appea

First Mini-Mission
Tours Local Agencies
All aboard! Taking a cue
from the successful Jewish
Federation sponsored missions
to Israel which provide a first-
hand opportunity to learn
about the needs of Israel and
how our dollars are spent
there, the Women's Division
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County inaugu-
rated a Mini-Mission Bus Tour
to accomplish similar aims on
a local level. Recently,
Women's Division board
members toured the Fede-
ration's four beneficiary
agencies, the Jewish Com-
munity Center and Camp
Shalom, the Jewish Family
and Children's Service, the
Jewish Home for the Aged
(under construction), and the
Jewish Community Day
The directors of the agencies
discussed the growing and
changing needs of the Palm
Beach community. The
women learned where the
future dollars have to be put in
order to serve the community
with new and better programs
while continuing to provide
the present level of services.
Margie Berg, Women's
Division Vice President,
stated, "We wanted our board
members to actually see the
local agencies and to become
familiar with the services and
programs that our local Fede-
ration dollars support. Some
women on our board have
never had the opportunity to
visit every agency and are
surprised to see all the work
that is being done in our com-
munity." She explained that
women who have attended this
program will be able to spread
the word about how important
and vital the work of every
agency is. "This has been a
very successful program. We
hope it will continue as an
ongoing program as the
women had a very fulfilling
experience," concluded Mrs.
Plans are underway to
involve presidents of
organizations and members of
various Jewish groups in up-
coming mini-missions. "We
ultimately want to involve the
general community in our
mini-missions to educate them
to the importance of volunteer
and financial support for the
changing needs of our growing
Jewish population," stated
Karen Hyman, chairman of
the Mini-Mission Bus Tour.

Nothing Illegal About
Corporate Lobbying
An ambitious program designed to
prevent a repetition of the business lobby-
ing efforts for certain Middle East policies,
particularly arms sales to Mideast Arab
states, was announced by the American
Jewish Congress. Clearly the program
could not have come at a better time. King
Hussein of Jordan was due in Washington
this week, and it is widely expected he
would bring along a shopping list of U.S.
armaments he desires and present it to the
Reagan Administration.
The A J Congress program, which will
work through shareholders resolutions, will
ask management to report to stockholders
on what concrete steps were taken to in-
fluence Congress and public opinion on the
AW ACS package; the estimated amount of
company funds spent on AW ACS lobbying
during 1981 and for other Mideast issues
during the past year; what part of these
lobbying expenses will be claimed as tax
deductible because they are legitimate
business expenses; projected management
plans for additional lobbying activities on
Mideast matters in the next 12 months;
and how lobbying on Mideast issues has
advanced the interests of the corporations.
Some of the 23 companies that have
sought to influence the Senate for the arms
package, which was approved in
November, 1981 after a heated discussion
between Washington and Jerusalem, have
clear interests in Saudi Arabia. These
companies include Boeing, Mobil, United
Technologies, Westinghouse Electric and
the Northrop Corporation.
But other companies that have been
targeted by the program such as
Greyhound and Ford Motor Corp. may not
have such clear ties to the Saudis. The
response of these corporations will indeed
be interesting as they attempt to
rationalize how their individual company
benefited from the AWACS arms package.
Overall, there is nothing illegal about a
company lobbying on behalf of interests it
determines to be to its advantage. But
some members of the Jewish community,
still very disturbed over the ugly tone of
the debate and the Administration's
solicitation of these corporations to exert
pressure on Capitol Hill for the arms sale,
would like to see these activities halted.
Shareholders have a right to know for
what purpose funds are being used, par-
ticularly when used without prior con-
sultation with shareholders and often in
contradiction to their views. While there is
nothing illegal about lobbying, the un-
precedented actions of the corporations
during the AWACS debate did present a
leaning towards moral bankruptcy.
For the first time its inhabitants can
remember, there is a sense of real peace in
Kibbutz Manara on the Lebanese border.
Eti Mizrachi recalls the night during
"Operation Peace for Galilee" when her
husband Nissim came home on a day's leave
after a terrible week of no word from him. "I
cried when our little girl put his hat on, held
his clothes and said 'Daddy, you can stay
home. I'll go and fight for you.' But it's over,
and it was worth it.
"My children have had nightmares for
years and now they know that they're safe. In
their words, 'Daddy got rid of the bad
people.' We feel as if we've had a knife at our
throats and it's finally been removed."
Kibbutz Manara's history has been fraught
with PLO shelling, occasional infiltration of
terrorists and endless nights in bomb shelters.
The isolated Jewish settlement is surrounded
by barbed wire and has been patrolled
vigilantly for years.
The" residents were under the constant
tension of being on a personal 24 hours alert
without letup.
A trip to Kiryat Shmona, the nearest town,
was filled with fear, especially at night. Yoav
Ramati, born on the kibbutz, says, "If I
absolutely had to, 1 would drive at night, but
1 had second thoughts about ever taking my
family with me. Some people here wouldn't
even consider going out at night. The kibbutz
suffered from this. Some people left. They
just couldn't take the tension we were living
Now. Manara can feel the benefits of
"Operation Peace for Galilee." Nonetheless,
the kibbutz lived with its own personal terror
during those weeks. Forty-six nf;,

the case were not complicated.
The taxpayer sent her 11 year
old son to a summer camp and
claimed the expenses were em-
ployment-related. Internal
Revenue objected. The Court
found that the expenses were
incurred to enable the tax-
payer to continue working
during the summer school
vacation. The fact that the
form of care chosen assured
the child of enjoyment did not
diminish the prime motive.
However, the Court warned
that the opinion is based upon

Mitzva Day'
Momentum Growing
The Jewish youth of Palm
Beach County need your help
to make "Mitzva Day" a
success. Coordinated by the
Jewish Community Youth
Council in conjunction with
Jewish youth groups
throughout the community,
teen-agers will be performing
odd jobs on January 9 to earn
money to donate to the Jewish
Federation in support of Super
Sunday. Youth are continuing
to ask for commitments for
jobs to be done on "Mitzva
"Mitzva Day" is in fact a
double mitzva, one, being the
chores that will be done for
those who may not otherwise
be able to do them themselves,
and two, raising funds
through donations for the
chores done which will be con-
tributed to support local needs
and in Israel.
Joyce Lampert, chairman of
"Mitzva Day" for the JCYC,
stated, "Job offers are be-
ginning to come in and we are
very happy to see the response
of the local community.
However, we need many more
to make the day a success. All
the youth groups are working
hard to support this effort."
Explaining the reason behind
the concept of "Mitzva Day,"
Joyce said, "We don't have
much money of our own to
donate to Super Sunday so
working for it means so much
more to us. We see our parents
contributing to the Super
Sunday effort and we want to
do something too. Since we
cannot solicit on the phones,
we have found our way to

On February 6, Super

the funds that they have raised
to the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County at Super
Sunday. "We of the Jewish
Community Youth Council
will accept your contribution
at the time of our services to
you. You can help to en-
courage our youth by ordering
services, before "Mitzva
Day," to be done on "Mitzva

continue to support Israel and
our local Jewish community,
and therefore perpetuate
Judaism," stated Sherri

Cupis Propaganda
The "PLOV National
Council is hard at work on
America's College campuses
trying to stop Jewish students'
support of Israel. This is a
frightening indication of the
importance placed by the
"PLO" on influencing the
next generation of American
policy-makers, as well as the
future leadership of the
American Jewish community.
Think about this.
Israels Value lo The
On the Lebanese battlefield,
Israel proved that Soviet arms
are second rate. As a result,
America's position in the vital
and strategic mid-East has
been strengthened and Soviet,
PLO influence considerably
Will the new Soviet regime
now be willing to demonstrate
moderation and good will?
This could well be done by
easing Jewish emigration re-
strictions, and by releasing
prisoner of conscience,
Anatoly Sharansky, whose
desperate plight symbolizes
the anguish of all Soviet Jews
wishing to emigrate. A group
of intellectuals, including
Nobel prize winners, have ap-
pealed to world public opinion
to intervene in behalf of
Sharansky. The Soviet Union
is a tough place to live and a
tough place to leave. Write to

The recently dedicated

Vietnam is a simple, sculpted

It is a reality every Israeli
family knows well. After 34
years of existence, Israel is still
plagued by surrounding
enemies determined to an-
nihilate her. Is it any wonder
that Israel, in return for her
repeated sacrifices, will settle
for nothing less, than clear
recognition of simply its right'
to exist in peace.
Syria has ignored the ap-
peals of Israel and the United
States to return Israeli soldiers
captured during the conflict in
Lebanon. Syria is also pre-
venting the International Red
Cross representatives from

Study today'; issues. Then
study your conscience. Are
you involved? Are you doing
your share? Faith, courage
and wisdom are needed. Learn
the facts. And, paraphrasing
the language of our Bible,
speak them when thou liest
down and when thou risest up;
when thou walkest by the way
and when thou sittest by the
pool Wherever you are
speak the facts.
It's noteworthy that while
many nations have a standing
army, Israel has no army, per
se. It has a DEFENSE
FORCE. In her 34 years of
existence, Israel has been con-
stantly attacked by surround
ins enemies. Israel's Defense
Force consists of shop assis-
tants, farmers, bus drivers and
professional men who pas-
sionately hate war and killing,
but who a remitter mined to de-
fend their families and country
when necessary.
World-Wide Cannibalu-atioa
Of Israel
Yehudi Menuhin criticized
"world-wide hypocrisy" for
singling out Israel to blame for
the Lebanon conflict.
Menuhin stated that other
countries were trying to relieve
their own guilt feelings in this
ay. (The Holocaust, Hiro-
shima, Vietnam, Uganda, Af-
ganistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria,
Central and South America,
Poland, England, Argentina
and the Falkland*, Cambodia,
Ireland, plus unanswered ter-
rorist attacks in France, Italy,
Austria, Germany, Brussels
and Venezuela.) All this is ob-
vious and overlooked. The at-
tention of the world is kept
riveted on tiny Israel. How
come? Let he who is perfect,
cast the first stone.

Dr. Aaron Klug of England,
was awarded the 1982 Nobel

Contributions to Woody
Allen's mail appeal for the
formation of the National
Political Action Committee
indicate that Americans recog-
nize the importance of work-
ing through direct political
action to stem erosion of sup-
port for Israel. Commitment
to the security of Israel goes
hand in hand with America's
strategic interests in the Mid-
East. There is an annual credit
of SO percent of political con-
tributions on Federal tax re-
turns. NATPAC members in-
tend to show our representa-
tives that we are alert and
ready to support in 1984 those
candidates dedicated to sup-
porting the reasonable and
just claims of our ally, Israel.
Chaim Herzog, former Is-
raeli Ambassador to the
United Nations and a General
in the Israeli defense forces,
who has been involved in every
one of Israel's wars of de-
fense, said that despite heavy
Israeli losses and world wide
criticism, the recent Lebanon
conflict was a significant step
forward towards peace. Com-
ing from a military expert and
leader of the Labor opposi-
tion, his views are important
and encouraging.
A survey conducted by the
Union Bank of Switzerland of
the world's major cities com-
paring the average price for a
basket of food, showed that
Tel Aviv is one of the least ex-
pensive cities in the world. To
buy an average basket of food
in Tel Aviv, a person needed
$128 a month, compared to
$554 in Tokyo, $307 in
Geneva, and $245 in Los

provide America with bases so

vided us with just such protec-
tion without ever requesting or
requiring that a single Ameri-
can soldier set foot on her soil.
The result has been that very

marked by a gala concert here
described by some music olo-
gists as "the greatest concert
in the history of the violin,"
with the participation of six of
the world's greatest violinists.
The Israel Philharmonic
Orchestra, which Huberman
founded in 1932, has honored
the great violinist with a spe-
cial week of concerts, under
the baton of its musical direc-
tor and conductor Zubin
Mehta. The violinists who
played were Isaac Stern,
Pinhas Zuckerman, Yitzhak
Perlman, Ida Haendel,
Shlomo Mint/ and Ivry Gitlis.
A seventh violinist to have
taken part in the final festive
concert was Henrik Schering,
whose father a Warsaw
businessman, has paid the
fares of many Jewish members
of the Warsaw Symphony
Orchestra in 1936 to go to
Palestine to help found the

Nevertheless, there was

ack from Beirut, confirmed
Israeli officials that there

nd Lebanon might begin in a

kcking down by Israel, Begin
Isisted, according to Cabinet
Wees, that the announce-
ment be made straight for-
ardly and clear.
He insisted that the national
kierest required that Israel
fake the concession so that
Sreements already concluded
formally with Lebanon can
' formalized without delay.
Israeli sources did not reveal
M identities of the "very
fcnior Lebanese figures" with

let for several weeks. They
Cknowledged that there are

Defense Minister in a solo ef-
fort without the help of the
Americans. According to
Sharon's circles, Habib and
Draper were "surprised" by
Sharon's success.
The sources emphasized
that the U.S. role would be
vital, not only in mediation
between Israel, Syria and the
I'LU lor total withdrawal but
also in the protracted formal
negotiations between Israel
and Lebanon. The sources
said several Cabinet ministers
had expressed their apprecia-
tion of the American efforts.
They stressed that Israel was
pot being asked by the U.S. or
by Lebanon to pull back its
force unilaterally. They said
simultaneous withdrawal by
Israel and the Syrians was un-
der consideration, probably in
stages, to begin after the PLO
pulls out its estimated 6-7,000
armed men.
Reagan's comments in
Washington indicated that he
was fast losing patience over
the lack of movement in Leba-
non. He told the Washington
Post in an interview published
recently that "the time has
come now for the foreign
forces that are there Syria,
Israel and the remnant of the
PLO" to pull out of Lebanon.
"For these countries to delay
in getting out now places them
in the position of being oc-
cupying armies," he said, ac-
cording to the Post.
He added, the Post re-
ported, that for Israel to be in
Lebanon on invitation or
when it was being attacked
from across the Lebanese
border was one thing, but for
them to be there now was
something else. "The Leba-
nese government has enough
confidence in itself that it has
asked them (the Israelis) to
leave and to not leave is, as 1
say, to make themselves an oc-
cupying force," the President
was quoted by the Post.

Congratulations to Edwin and Barbara Scher of Lake
Worth on winning a Dream Vacation Contest sponsored
by AAA-Florida. Their prize was an all expense trip to the
Magic Kingdom and Epcot for five fun filled, wonderful
days. There was nothing Mickey Mouse about this trip.
They stayed at Travelodge Towers in Lake Buena Vista
and dined at The Contemporary, The Polynesian Village,
and The Walt Disney World Village Restaurant.
Barbara was Director of Public Relations and Adver-
tising Manager for Young Israel of Sunnyside (Queens).
She wrote TALK OF THE TOWN for New York Voice for

Albert Einstein Archives Transferred
To Hebrew University
The Albert Einstein Archives,
containing 43.000 documents
including much of the scient-
ist's correspondence and more
than 30 unpublished scientific
manuscrips, has been trans-
ferred to its ultimate home at
the Hebrew University of Je-
rusalem. Scholars at the uni-
versity will immediately begin
work with the papers, said
Prof. Reuven Yaron, who has
overall charge of the archives.
Since Einstein's death in
I9SS, the papers were housed
at the Institute for Advanced
Studies in Princeton, N.J.,
where the scientist spent the
last yoars of his life. They were
flown to Jerusalem few weeks
ago. According to Yaron, the
Hebrew University will under-
take the preparation of a de-
tailed catalogue of the con-
tents of the archive which, he
said, he hoped will be pub-
lished by Princeton University
The Princeton University
Press is editing and publishing
the Einstein papers, a project
which is now a joint effort
with the Hebrew University.
The Hebrew University plans a
full program involving the
papers, considered by many to
begone of the greatest scienti-
fic, cultural and historical col-
lections extant. The archives
will be housed in a special sec-
tion of the Jewish National
and University Library,
located at the university's
Givat Ram campus in Jerusa-
"We will pursue a liberal
policy of access to the pa-
pers," Yaron said, adding that
most work would be done
from photocopies, while
access to the original docu-
ments are also available at
Princeton University.
The university, he said, will
continue the process of ac-
quiring additional material for
the archives, either copies or
originals or original
documents and in some cases
will purchase the originals.
Plans are also being made, he
said, for a major Einstein ex-
hibition in April, 1985, mark-
ing the 30th anniversary of
Einstein's death.
Some Of The Documents
Einstein gave several impor-
tant documents to the univer-
sity during his lifetime, includ-
ing the original manuscript of
the 1916 article outlining his
theory of general relativity.
The 43,000 documents
which arrived in Jerusalem in-
clude scientific and non-
scieniific material, with the
non-scientific items outnum-
bering the scientific by a
margin of about three to two.
The great majority of the ma-
terial has never been pub-
lished, including most of the
Einstein corresponded with
many of the world's leading
figures fellow scientists,
political leaders, philosophers.
The archive's scientific corre-
spondence includes letters to
and from such personalities as
Niels Bohr, Max Planck and
H. A. Lorentz.
The archives contain more
than 30 unpublished scientific
manuscripts, both complete
and incomplete, as well as
several notebooks from his
student days in Zurich. An in-
complete list of the world
figures with whom Einstein
corresponded and whose
letters are found in the ar-
chives includes Sigmund
Freud. Mohandas Chandi. Al-
bert Schweitzer, President
Franklin Roosevelt and
Eleanor Roosevelt and George
Bernard Shaw.
Among the historic docu-
ments in the archives is a copy
of Einstein famous 1939 letter
to President Roosevelt
warning him of the military
potential of atomic energy, as
well as the original of Roose-
velt's answer, informing Ein-
stein that he was convening a
board to investigate the situa-
tion, a step which led to the
Manhattan Project and the
eventual development of the
first atomic bomb.
Einstein identified closely
with his Jewish heritage and
was active on behalf of the
Zionist movement. The ar-
chives include a large amount
of correspondence with Chaim
Weizmann. He was closely as-
sociated with the development
of the Hebrew University and
served on its Board of Gov-
ernment for several years.
He was honorary president
of the American Friends of the
Hebrew University, and the
archives contains correspond-
ence reflecting his deep con-
cern for the organization's
activity on behalf of the uni-
versity in the United States.
Affected By Perseetk>
Of Jews
Germany's persecution of
Jews in Europe deeply af-
fected Einstein. One letter sent
to Eleanor Roosevelt in July,
1941. pointed out the diffi-
culties faced by Europeans
trying to find a haven in the
United States.
The letter told her of a
"policy now being pursued in
the Stale Department which
makes it all but impossible to
give refuge in America to
many worthy persons who are
the victims of fascist cruelty in
Europe." The archives
contains her reply stating that
she had brought the letter to
the attention of her husband.
Yaron is a professor of
Roman Law and ancient Near
East Law. From 1967 to 1971,
he served as dean of the
Faculty of Law at the Hebrew
University and from 1973 to
1978 as director of the Jewish
National and University Li-
brary, which serves as I

WZCongress Assembly Ends With No
Consensus On Settlement Policies
The 30th World Zionist Con-
gress ended here on an uncer-
tain note. No consensus was
reached on the fiercely contro-
versial issue of the govern-
ment's settlement policies in
the occupied territories and in-
ter-party wrangling over the
composition of the new World
Zionist Organization Execu-
tive continued to the very end.
Leon Dulzin, who ran un-
opposed, was unanimously re-
elected chairman of the WZO
Executive which, it was
agreed, will be composed of 35
members. There was some re-
shuffling of portfolios but the
final allocations were not
completed when the weary
delegates wound up the Con-
gress with the singing of
Hatikva. It was supposed to
have ended the night before.
The issue of settlement
policies came to a head when
the Labor Zionists and the
World Confederation of
United Zionists, comprising a
majority of the Plenum, ap-
proved a resolution pointing
to the dangers of increasing
Jewish settlements in the
heavily Arab-populated re-
gions of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
The Congress presidium re-
fused to accept the resolution
and a "good-will" subcom-
mittee made up of delegates
from all of the major parties
went to work to try to reach a
formulation acceptable to all.
But after laboring for two
days, the Congress declared
that it "could not reach con-
sensus on the settlement sub-
It approved instead a
general resolution expressing
hope lor the establishment of
peace "based on secure and
defensible borders, a peace
that will allow blossoming and
creativity" in the territories.
Begin Intervenes For Tami
Congress sources confirmed
that Premier Menachem
Begin's personal intervention
helped secure one Executive
seat for Aharon Abu-Hat-
zeira's Tami faction although
on the basis of its Knesset
strength it sent only 18 dele-
gates to the Congress, five
short of the minimum neces-
sary for representation on the
WZO Executive. Abu-Hat-
zeira reportedly threatened to
pull his three-man Sephardic-
based faction out of Begin's
coalition government if Tami
was denied a place on the
Similarly, Mizrachi retained
its three seats on the WZO
Executive despite the fact that

LONDON The World
Jewish Congress has released
an investigative report docu-
menting the growth of Arab
influence in American univer-
sities during the past seven
years. The report, issued here
by the WJC research arm, the
Institute of Jewish Affairs,
traces the rise of Arab influ-
ence to the power of petro-
dollars felt throughout the
world after the unprecedented
oil price increases following
the 1973-74 embargo.
Universities in the U.S. fac-
ing falling enrollments and
reduced funding engaged in a
scramble for these Arab petro-
dollars. The report was written
for the Institute by Will
Maslow, general counsel of
the American Jewish Congress
and the American Section of
the WJC.
THESE OIL revenues were
used to establish chairs and
centers for Arab studies which
have been used as Arab propa-
ganda mills, according to the
author of the report. There are
indications that Saudi Arabia
and Libya have pressured uni-
versities to bar Jewish faculty
members from participating in
these programs. This has led
to concern that the Arab
grants are endangering aca-
demic freedom and the educa-
tional process in the United
The first case to arouse ap-
prehension was that of
Georgetown University in
Washington, famous for
training future U.S. diplo-
mats, which accepted grants
from Oman and the United
Arab Emirates to establish a
Center for Contemporary
Arab Studies.
Clovis Maksoud, the Arab
League representative in
Washington, taught there,
"while it was made clear that
no Israeli professor would be
hired." Georgetown has re-
ceived over $3.3 million for
the Center from eight Arab
governments but returned
some $600,000 to Libya last
year citing "Libya's continued
accent on violence."
LARGE ARAB grants have
been accepted by Harvard,
Columbia, Duke, Johns Hop-
kins, New York University,
and the University of Southern
Harvard University has ac-
cepted $1 million from an un-
identified Saudi Arabian
businessman to establish a
professional chair in Arab
studies. Part of the grant is to
be used to finance a part-time
research position for Walid
Khalidi, described by the New
York Times as a PLO sym-
pathizer, raising the question
whether the academic prin-
ciple of not permitting donors
to specify who will fill posi-
tions has been violated.
Similar problems have
arisen in Canada where the
faculty of Concordia Univer-
sity in Montreal voted in
April, 1982 to oppose an ex-
change agreement with King
Faisal University of Saudi
Arabia after reports that Jew-
ish faculty members would not
be eligible for assignment to
the Saudi university.
Flagler's success is partially
because of its tough policies.
The bank doesn't give
anything away. Nor does it
worry about meeting and
passing every new rate and
term its competitors come up
with. Instead of luring the
small depositor with the legal
mimimum money-market-
fund type account and free
checking, Flagler aims pro-
grams towards the bigger in-
vestor. "We're not looking for
minim urns," Rossin stated.
The bank's success is such
that new branches are planned
for the coming year. A site is
now being negotiated in
Delray Beach, and prospects
in western Boynton Beach are
also being investigated.
Also planned are branches
in eastern and western Boca
Raton, the western suburbs of
West Palm Beach, and the
45th Street area of West Palm
Beach. Northern expansion is
next. These guys really do
think big.
Flagler is now in the process
of converting into a bank
holding company.

But politics does intrude,
and there are controversies
and discussions. During the
war in Lebanon, Israel's
popularity slipped. However,
there was no visible sign of any
anti-Israel feeling among
Italians here. There was an
attempt by a small subversive,
illegal leftist group, Com-
munists Organized for Pro-
letarian Liberation (COLP),
to bomb the Jewish com-
munity center on the night of
September 29, but this was
severely condemned by of-
ficials and the public.
The official Communist
Party itself undertook a pro*
paganda campaign against
Israel and every night sent out
a sound truck blaring anti-
Israel statements. As the truck
travelled through the city,
nobody seemed to listen;
nobody seemed to care. The
war was far away and there
were pleasures at hand to
attend to.

He said he'd call, and he
didn't. There could be any one
of several reasons why. He]
forgot. He worked late. He;
had a car accident. He fell in I
love with another woman.
"Why do women always
think it's that?," the last
reason, asked psychologist
Penelope Russianoff. At a
Johns Hopkins lecture series,
Dr. Russianoff sketched her
message of "undependence,"
the theme of her recently
published book, "Why Do I
Think I'm Nothing Without A
THE BOOK'S catchy title
alone would have drawn a
crowd. But Dr. Russianoff, a
Baltimore native who now
lives in New York City, has
become something of a guru to
single women, starting with
her role a few years back in the
movie, "An Unmarried
Woman," as Jill Clayburgh's
sympathetic psychiatrist and
continuing with the lecture
circuit, TV and radio talks
shows, and interviews in
newspapers and, proof of
celebrity status, "People"
So the faithful or curious
turned out in force, a polite,
multi-generational mob from
jeans-clad students to
fashionably fall-suited
matrons, the smattering of
men (six, to be exact) conspic-
uous by their presence.
Dr. Russianoff, a tall,
angular woman with grey-
streaked dark hair who has a
private practice as well as
being a faculty member at the
New School for Social Re-
search softened her sharp
message with a witty manner.
IN THESE supposedly en-
lightened times, according to
Dr. Russianoff, sophisticated
and successful, albeit single,
women continue to act as
though they were heroines in a
Gothic novel. They pin
romantic dreams on a man
whose greatest goal is likely to
be no entanglements. When he
disappoints their impossible
expectations, they are devas-
tated, interpreting it as a de-
lect in themselves.
Dr. Russianoff sees a lot of
this kind of behavior in her
practice, comprised in good
portion of successful, single
career women. "When you
scratch the surface," she said,
"many of these women feel
empty and alone without a
man. They feel they haven't
'won' in life, that they are de-
fective because they don't
have a man."
Women will deny this empty
feeling, or they will acknow-
ledge the feeling but deny the
cause. "But then they fear
buying a house because 'he'
may come along and not like
it," Dr. Russianoff continued,
"or they don't want to get too
involved in their careers
because 'he' may come along
and they'll have to move."
SOME WOMEN even deny
themselves the pleasures of life
because they don't have a man
to accompany them to the
theater or a restaurant. "One
women told me, after a
vacation at the beach, that she
couldn't enjoy the lovely
sunsets because she didn't
have a lover to enjoy them
with," said Dr. Russianoff,
outraged at such foolishness.
"That's ridiculous. You've
got eyes, the sunset is there."
Dr. Russianoff lays the
blame for this behavior
squarely on two shoulders.
"Centuries of brain-washing
by society," she cites one
reason, and the other,
"women accepting the role of
being inferior to men."
Even Dr. Russianoff could
not escape society's brain-
washing, and she had what
would now be considered a
"feminist" upbringing. Her
father, a Hopkins professor,
and her mother, a career
woman, encouraged her to
pursue a profession and
through it, financial in-
YET AS A young girl grow-
ing up, she related her major
aim was to become a sex
object despite her almost six
foot height. "1 had a fantasy
life you wouldn't believe even
though I went to a Country
Day School and there were no
men around."
It was also clear to the
young Dr. Russianoff that, as
she remembers, "I was
doomed to be an old maid"
notwithstanding her mother's
reassurance that women as tall
as she did indeed get married.
Society's message, she
summarized, "was you are
only successful if some man
wants to take care of you. In
other words, be sweet and
clean and pretty, nice and not
fat and dumb."
THE MESSAGE had a dire
side, too, "that it's dreadful to
be alone. Why," Dr.
Russianoff shuddered, "you
might even die alone although
that always puzzled me
because if you're dead, pre-
sumably you don't care

Now, women have an added
burden. They are up against
odds decidedly unfavorable.
Half of all marriages in the
United States end in divorce.
Men die at an earlier age than
women. Just in New York
City, it has been estimated
there are a million more single
women of marriageable age,
roughly 16 to 60, then com-
parable single men.
"IT IS characteristic of
women to get depressed," Dr.
Russianoff observed,
"because they don't have a
pool of eligible bachelors and
they don't have meaningful,
exciting work that absorbs
But some women are fight-
ing back, a move Dr.
Russianoff applauds. You
don't have to sit home feeling
sorry for yourself. If you've
got only one life to live, she
suggests, sounding like a
Clairol commercial, you might
as well enjoy it. "Women are
finding resources they never
thought of before." She
points out specific examples.
Female friends are an
important resource. "Female
friendship has been pooh-
poohed. In our culture, men
are jealous of female friend-
ships. The will say, 'we're
married now. I'm your best
friend.' But you shouldn't give
up your female friends when
you marry. The fact is, women
enjoy their friendships.
Women can laugh and cry
with each other. Women
friends are nonjudgemental."
AN EQUALLY important
resource is platonic male
friendships. These may be
harder to form then female
friendships, she noted,
"because sex is expected in re-
lationships now. After three
dates, women think, if he
hasn't attacked me yet, he
must not think me attractive.
Men know women are think-
ing this, and they feel they are
being judged. It messes up
platonic relationships."
Another resource would be
to have exciting, meaningful
work "so when you jump out
of bed in the morning, it's
because you have something to
look forward to," she said,
adding "hopefully, your work
pays money, because in our
society financial independence
has a special aura." Should
your livelihood depend on a
drudge of a job, an alternative
is to find an exciting, mean-
ingful hobby.
The next step on the road to
"un-dependence" involves
nothing less than changing
your way of thinking about
yourself. Women tend to be
hard on themselves, "con-
tantly scolding themselves
with an endless list of I should
have-shouldn't have' worn
that dress, stayed home for the
phone call, made that com-
ment, gone to that party," Dr.
Russianoff said.
INSTEAD OF accentuating
the negatives, exaggerated or
imagined, in your life, she
advised, "evaluate yourself
realistically. That's not being
sarcissist. Discuss things with
Dr. Penelope Russianoff
yourself out loud you'd
better to this when you're
Furthermore, she said,
when you are with a man, or
another woman, overcome the
inclination to focus on
yourself. "Women are raised
to think about themselves, the
physical impression they
make. How do I look? How's
my hair, my outfit? Rather
than looking inward, force
yourself to pay attention to the
other person."
But there are more im-
portant aspects to Dr.
Russianoff s message than the
ability to be a good conversa-
tionalist, to appear interested
in and pleased with a man.
"Whatever you can do to feel
good about yourself, do it,"
she said, getting to the heart of
the issue. "But don't give that
responsibility to make you
feel good about yourself to
another person. Don't pivot
your feeling of self-worth
around a man."
JUST ASshe asks women to
look at themselves realistical-
ly, Dr. Russianoff asks women
to view men the same way. In
Victorian times, women were
trained to act helpless, to faint
at the bumps in life. "Men
arent' interested in rescuing
ladies anymore. These days,
they are interested in surviv-
ing," she observed.

How to Tackle Life's Problems
B'nai Torah Congregation
Boca Ralon, Fla.
It might be that there are
many lessons of life one can
learn from a football game.
Let's mention some examples
for our own edification. One
might learn how to tackle life's
problems, how to accept the
kicks of life, thai it is also nice
to receive, how important it is
to keep in line, that one should
always have a goal in mind,
that even the best fumble
sometime, that one should
measure carefully to see pro-
gress in life, that if yon want
to be on the team of life, sitt-
ing on the sidelines is not
much fun, etc.
The observance of the
secular New Year is usually as-
sociated with alcohol,
parades, and football. One has
to dig deeply in American
culture to find any lasting
significance to the ritual of the
American New Year.
Americans have chosen to
mark this passage of time in a
manner seemingly devoid of
any lasting impact (except,
perhaps, a hangover).
Our Jewish value system, as
we all know, does not preclude
the concept of having fun and
rejoicing. In fact, there is great
emphasis in our tradition on
celebration. The difference, I
believe, between American
celebrations and Jewish
"simcha" is the purpose for
which it is done. "Simcha,"
rejoicing, as Jews, is to have a
quality of elevation and fervor
that carries over into every
aspect of our life. Each Jewish
"simcha" emphasizes two
levels of celebration. One
would be the momentary feel-
ings of exhilaration, the other
would be the lasting impact of
the spiritual reason for
There are so many occasions
on the Jewish calendar and in
the Jewish life cycle during
which we celebrate Births,
Bar-Bat Mitzvah, Weddings,
Shabbat, Sukkot, Simchat
Torah, Chanukah, Purim, etc.
Notice, please, that one major
occasion is obviously missing
from this list. That occasion is
the New Year. Rosh Hashanah
has such a different meaning
in Jewish life. The passing of a
year of life is a cause in our
tradition for introspection and
evaluation. Without football
games, without intoxication,
e are bidden at that point in
time to take life and how we
live it very seriously. It is a
time of thankgiving for the
gift of life and a recognition of
the miracle of creation.
Perhaps on the secular New
Year, while we are celebrating
in some fashion with our
fellow Americans, while some
are glued to the television
screens for parades and
football, we can pause to
reflect on the passage of time
and realize that the joy of life
in our tradition comes in a
oneness with God and in a
sense of unity with all of
God's creation. A touchdown
may be a cause for momentary
rejoicing, but it is a sense of
meaning in life that brings
"simcha" to one's lasting
Bar Mitzvah
Sean Frydman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Irving Frydman of
West Palm Beach will be bar mitzvah at Temple Beth El on
Jan. 1. 1983. Rabbi Howard J. Hirsch and Cantor Elaine
Shapiro will officiate.
Harold S. Kushner, author
of "When Bad Things Happen
to Good Reople" wrote his
book out of a personal need to
come to terms with a rare pre-
mature aging disease that
struck his only son who died
two days after his 14th birth-
day. Through his despair, he
worked out answers that are
helpful to people of all faiths.
His book has been on the best-
seller list for many months and
is a Book-of-the-Month Club
Rabbi Kushner, who is the
spiritual leader of Temple Is-
rael in Natick, Mass., will
speak at Temple Emanu-EI in
Palm Beach on Wednesday
evening, Jan. 12 at 8 p.m. The
rabbi will deliver the first Dr.
Henry T. Silberman Memorial
Lecture. The series is named in
memory of a prominent mem-
ber of the Temple who passed
away earlier this year.
Rabbi Kushner is a native of
Brooklyn, N.Y., and a grad-
uate of Columbia University.
He was ordained at the Jewish
Theological Seminary in 1960
and was awarded a doctoral
degree in Bible by the Semi-
nary in 1972. He has also
studied at the Hebrew Univer-
sity in Jerusalem and the Har-
vard Divinity School.
In his book, which will pro-
vide the basis for his talk at
Temple Emanu-EI, the rabbi
draws upon his years of coun-
selling experience, and the
hundreds of human dramas he
has known. He deals with the
age-old idea that suffering is
ennobling. He also cites the
old Iranian proverb: "If you

tacts with ho. The call was in-
cluded in a resolution ovo-

by a vote of 8"-22 with 31 ab-
Thu resolution was pan of a
score of resolutions which
sharply criticized Israel and its
occupation of Arab territorio.
The resolution also called for
unconditional withdrawal by
Israel from all tenitorio it has
occupied smce 1967. The
resolutions said that unless Is-
rael wahdrew, there can be no
just aad tasting sotlement in
the Middle East.
The same resolution also
strongly condemned the nega-
tive voto of the United Stato
in the Security Council on
resolutions regarding the Mid-
dle East. The roolutions said
that the United States veto
presents the Council from
taking appropriate measures
to solve the Middle East con-
flict. The resolution also de-
manded that Israel rescind Us
decision to impose its laws and
jurisdiction on the Golan
Heights and reiterated a previ-
ous General Assembly state-
ment that lsrad was not "a
peace-loving member-state."
Another resolution adopted
condemned the massacre of
civilians in Beirut and called
for the strict respect for Leba-
non's sovereignty. Israel
joined the vote condemning
the massacre but voted, in a
separate vote, against the pro-
vision that said that the mas-
sacre was an act of genocide.
