feel about becoming the

for which Resnik has trained

Thirty-five-year-old Resnik,

well-known, grew up in
Akron, Ohio, and graduated
from Firestone High School

day visit to Moscow as the
personal guest of President
I rancois Mitterrand.
Klein was the first Jewish
leader ever invited by a head
of government to accompany
him on an official visit to the
Soviet Union. He told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that Mitterrand's gesture
served to make public opi-
nion more aware of the
plight of Soviet Jewry and
probably made the Soviet au-
thorities more conscious of
the gravity with which the
West views this issue.
Klein expressed the hope
that the heads of other

and invite Jewish leaders to
accompany them to the

functions in Moscow. At his
request, Foreign Minister
Claude Cheysson raised the
issue of Soviet Jews at his
meetings with Soviet officials,
especially Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromyko who is
regarded by many in the
West as currently the most
powerful man in the USSR
after President Konstantin
Cheysson referred specif-
ically to the cases of five
Jewish activists considered
most urgent. Klein refused to
name them however nor
would he say what the Soviet
response was.
He told the JTA that he
himself managed to meet
with a Jewish refusenik in
Moscow. He did not identify
the man who, he said, has
been waiting 10 years for an
exit visa. But he said he was
told by the refusenik that in
recent months the situation
has worsened for Jewish
activists and many now fear
that the Soviet authorities
might ban exit visas altogeth-
er. They attribute this at least
in part to the worsening of
East-West relations, Klein
On .Friday night, the CR1F
president attended services at
Moscow's main and only
synagogue where he found
only a handful of elderly
people. According to Klein
most Moscow Jews probably
knew of his presence but
were discouraged by the au-
thorities from trying to ap-
proach him. He said he was
told that attendance at the
Friday night services was less
than normal, probably for
that reason.

campers at Camp Shalom as they eagerly
rushed from the buses. The 55-member staff
under the direction of Hareen Bertisch was
ready with rainy day activities until the sun
belatedly made its appearance later in the day.
"We have an amazing staff which has made
this first day flow so smoothly. The children
are having a ball. With only one stubbed toe,
we're off to a great start," Mrs. Bertisch said.
Ruth Dillenberger, the Israeli Scout, was in
great demand with all the campers as the day
progressed. She will have each group come
together with her twice during the week to

Mrs. Bertisch related each year the Scout
has a completely different personality which
adds to the children's fascination with the
representative of Israel. The Scouts also get
very involved and attached to the children.

Professionals Choose
Life As Unwed Mothers
Two massive changes in
American social patterns
the emergence of a growing
number of upwardly mobile,
well-paid women profes-
sionals, including Jewish
women professionals, and the
unprecedented liberalization
of sexual mores may have
produced a development
unique in western society: an
organized and growing group
of American women who
choose to have children out
of wedlock.
Many of them are members
of Single Mothers by Choice
(SMBC), a kind of mutual
aid society organized by Jane
Mattes, a New York City
psychotherapist, who
described the development
and functions of SMBC at a
luncheon sponsored by the
American Jewish Committee
last January and elaborated
on the rationale and activities
of the group in several tele-
phone interviews with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
She said SMBC has a
mailing list of about 1,000
women and holds monthly
meetings at a nearby church
for which attendance
fluctuates. She said 20
members is considered a
small attendance and 40 a
large attendance. The group
holds "thinkers series"
sessions three Monday nights
a month, on alternate
months, to discuss the pros
and cons of unwed mother-
hood. She said attendance at
those sessions is restricted to
ten women so that their
concerns can get thorough
The group also holds two
social events each year and 65
members attended the most
recent one. Indicating she did
not know the personal
histories of many of the
members, including a number
of out-of-town members, she
estimated that about half of
the unwed mothers are

She told the JTA that
about 75 percent of the
unwed mothers use artificial
insemination because they
feel it is not fair to involve a
man in such a situation. She
said a great deal of informa-
tion is available about the
donor of the sperm, including
whether he is Jewish, his
race, his family background
and related information.
The group, small in
number initially, began
meeting in 1981 and was
incorporated as a non-profit
organization under state law
in 1983. Dues are S45 a year,

Once a woman has
attended a thinkers series

monthly meetings, Ms.
Mattes said. The goal of thai

realities of unwed mother-
hood to women thinking
about it.

altcrnoons a week. After two
vveeks of a particular activity
they may choose to tackle
another area.
All children will be able to
participate in the Discovery
Room where they will expe-
rience a hands on approach
to diflcrent facets of science
and nature. The Science
Museum and Planetarium of
Palm Beach County has
made available their traveling
kits and ideas on subjects
from geology to astronomy.
Mrs. Bertisch noted that
parents can also contribute
by lending collections; small
animals, like hamsters;
magnets; microscopes, etc.
As the first day drew to a
close, Jason Wanuck, 10, a
veteran camper of seven
years, compared notes with
his friend, Craig Mazer, who
was attending Camp Shalom
for the first time. Jason likes
the Sabra division the best
because, although he is a
sports enthusiast, he likes the

whelming since she moved to
this community a few months
ago. "I had expected to get
out into the community for
the first several months to let
people know I was available
and how I could help them
but, because of the demand,
I have been in this office
dealing with clients exclu-
sively mainly in the area
of unemployment."
One such client is a 35 year
old married man with one
child. He was working in
distribution management,
earning a salary in the $30's.
He has a Bachelor's degree in
business from a fine univer-
sity with 10-12 years of
extensive warehouse and
retail experience at manage-
ment levels.
After relocating to this
area, the firm he worked for
went out of business.
Although he was able to get
another job in the same field,
he is underemployed because
he is making a salary in the
lower teens. However, he
now realizes he will have to
improve his job searching
skills and, most likely, will
have to relocate once more to
find a job near his original
responsibilities and salary.
To assist people like this
client and others who have
suddenly found themselves in
similar situations, Ms.
Chabon is developing
resources within the Jewish
community to locate jobs.
"I'm looking for a Jewish
response either by the organ-
ized Jewish community or by
businessmen and executives
who are in the position to
reach out and help the
unemployed and under-
employed," Ms. Chabon
"I am asking employers to
list their openings with me so
that a job bank can be
created. I will screen and
make the appropriate referral
but will not send anyone for
an interview who would not
match the employer's
requirements as it would be a
waste of time. I want to
provide success for both,"
she said.
Ms. Chabon noted that she
was not asking Jewish
employers to hire a person
only because they are Jewish,
but because they are qual-
ified. She wants them to be
given a chance to compete, to
be able to get their foot in
the door.
Ms. Chabon explores
several options with those
who seek her help. Retrain-
ing, or learning new skills, is
a viable alternative for many.

The luscious, if expensive,
tomatoes which some Israeli
families are eating this winter
came from Natti's and his
neighbors' flourishing new
hothouses. With the guidance
of field advisors from the
Ministry of Agriculture and
the installation of ultra-
modern equipment, this
group of highly motivated
young farmers, nearly all of
them new to the field of agri-
culture, have mastered the
delicate and precise art of
irrigated hothouse farming.
This marks another Israeli
advance in the adaptation for
farming in the off-season. In
addition to tomatoes, they
grow squash, peppers,
cucumbers, melons, mangoes
and grapes, as well as flowers
which are exported by air
daily throughout the winter
to European markets.
"The 'pioneers' of today
are hardly the same as the
founding fathers we learned
about in school," says Natti.
"My mother's father, for
example, was a real idealist.
He was an historian and
translator who came here
from Soviet Georgia in 1925
and insisted on doing manual
labor to participate in
building the country. He died
of overwork and disease
while still a young man. But
today, look at what we have
here. It's something special."

Nalti takes in his small but

Israel's Frank Talks
With De Cuellar
It was not necessary for United
Nations Secretary General Javier Perez
De Cuellar to go to Israel in order to
know just how that country and its
people feel about the UN. But go to
Israel he did on his just-concluded nine-
day visit to the Middle East.
While talking to Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, the UN Secretary
General was told in no uncertain terms
that Israel specifically and Jews generally
had not heard the kind of anti-Semitic
denunciations of them, and their Zionist
ideals, since the days of Adolf Hitler as
can be heard on any day during any
debate in the halls of the "world peace
Furthermore, Shamir told the Secretary
General, the distrust Israel feels for the
United Nations is rooted in the very fiber
of its people and their government. De
Cuellar never denied that he knows this,
and the Israelis were careful during his
visit to express their own admiration of
him personally as a thing apart from the
organization of which he is the
administrative head.
At the same time, De Cuellar felt it
necessary to repeat one of his unalterable
beliefs: that a convening of an
international parley on the Middle East
conflict sponsored by the UN could help
facilitate discussions toward a resolution
of the Israel-Arab dispute and a
settlement of the plight of the Palestinian
In all of this crosstalk in Jerusalem,
there lay a Catch-22. How can Israel
participate in such talks when Israel, its
people and their government distrust the
UN so overwhelmingly? This issue apart,
when last did an Arab nation not walk
out when Israel rose to address the
He Vows Support
The upshot of all of this, of course, was
a quiet Israeli demand: De Cuellar must
do something about toning down the
vitriolic anti-Semitism voiced on every
possible occasion by Arab delegations
specifically and their Third World stooges
generally in the halls of the United
Furthermore, Shamir was careful to
distinguish between the anti-Semitism
and the anti-Israel sentiments of these
sources so that De Cuellar should
understand that no one is equating
criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism.
Are Israel's feelings about De Cuellar
personally misplaced? We think not. We
hope not. No sooner did he return to New
York than De Cuellar met with a B'nai
B'rith delegation led by President Gerald
Kraft, who repeated Shamir's sentiments
about the United Nations so far as Israel
and Jews are concerned.
It is gratifying to note that De Cuellar
called anti-Semitism "shameful and
unacceptable" and that he would use
means avaUable to him to prevent future
anti-Jewish attacks at the UN.
"You can always rely on my support,"
said De Cuellar.

Jewish Community Must Face Court Ruling Head On
The 6 to 3 Supreme Court ruling on
affirmative action that grew out of the
Memphis case appears to be leaving the
Jewish community in a state of
puzzlement. What should it feel?
Despite anything Jesse Jackson may
have said to the contrary during his
frenzied campaign in the Democratic
primaries, Jews have long been in the
forefront of the American civil rights
movement. As such, their credentials are
sterling so far as standing at the side of
minorities, including blacks, is concerned
when it comes to guaranteeing more than
their equal right to employment
On the other hand, there have been
repeated instances when Jews and the
many organizations representing their
sentiments made pointed statements
about one of the less attractive end-
products of affirmative action programs:
reverse discrimination.
Many minority groups, again including
blacks, are already on record as believing
that charges of reverse discrimination are
a less than secret signal of affirmative
action disapproval. According to them if I

discrimination, ergo you are against
affirmative action.
But this is not necessarily so, and
those who believe it is are apparently at
the root source of the current Jewish
ambivalence toward the Supreme Court', I
ruling in the Memphis case.
What the Jewish community must doi
clear: so far as the ruling is concerned j
must stick to its guns. As in the past it I
must show its time-honored support of
equal opportunity. It must, at the same
time, feel free to be critical of individual
cases of flagrant reverse Discrimination.
Does the Supreme Court ruling render
this entire quandary as moot? Not
necessarily. Equal opportunity will
continue to need strong proponents of thai
principle it holds dear for a long time to
come. The court's ruling does not nullify I
that principle. It would be a pity if Jews!
were intimidated away from offering its
support on the basis that many of the
public now believe that the ruling casts
doubt even on this.

Tali is learning, very early

Israel Seeks Social Workers
The Israeli government,
responding to the country's
increasing need for qualified
social workers, will offer a
special orientation course this
fall for those interested in
emigrating to Israel.
The course, scheduled to
begin in September and last
eight months, is open to
individuals with a master's
degree in social work,
according to Yitzhak Ganor,
acting director of the Israel
Aliyah Center.
"The program is designed
to place immigrant social
workers on the same footing
as their Israeli-born counter-
parts by acquainting them
with the practice of their
profession in Israel," Ganor
"Participants also will have
had the benefit of meeting a
good number of contacts, in
part, through field place-
ments with social agencies."
The course includes a five-
month Hebrew ulpan for
those requiring further study
in the language. There will
also be up to four months of
lectures about the profession
and practical work experience
through field placements.

The problem with
funeral arrangements is the
person who should have
made the decisions didn't?
Most people have no idea what a
funeral entails. Or how much one costs.
Until the funeral. And then a spouse or
other loved one may have to make the
decisions alone under conditions which
may prove most limiting and stressful.
The GUARDIAN PLAN* Insurance
Funded Prearranged Funeral Program*
is changing all this for thousands of
families. For four simple reasons:
1. It spells out the alternatives and
cost in advance, in the privacy of your
home or office.
2. You determine the type of
funeral service you want, instead of
leaving that burden to a loved one, and
you decide whether to fund your pre-
arranged funeral in advance.
3. When fully funded, the pre-
arranged funeral you have selected is
guaranteed to be supplied and paid for
whenever needed.
4. For those funding their pre-
arranged funeral in advance, there are
several payment plans available, includ-
ing a convenient monthly installment plan

De Cuellar Visit to Israel May
Have Eased Strained Feelings
Israel's frequently strained
relations with the United
Nations may have been eased
somewhat but there were no
indications of a meeting of
minds during the 48 hour
visit here of UN Secretary
General Javier Perez de
Although the talks between
de Cuellar and Premier
Yitzhak Shamir and other
government officials were
cordial, basic differences
remain in their respective
long term and short term ap-
proaches to the Middle East
conflict. The Secretary
General rejected a proposal
by Shamir that the United
Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL) be
deployed as a buffer between
the Israel Defense Force and
the Syrian army which face
each other in eastern
According to de Cuellar,
such a move would further
weaken Lebanese sovereignty
and lead to partition of that
country. Shamir, for his part,
forcefully rejected the Secre-
tary General's long standing
proposal to convene an in-
ternational peace conference
on the Middle East under UN
auspices. Israel objects most
vehemently to any peace
process that would include
the Soviet Union and the
Palestine Liberation Orga-
nization, as envisaged by de
Nevertheless, de Cuellar
told the Israeli leaders that he
would make an effort to
improve Israel's relations
with the UN and to end the
anti-Israel campaign at UN
forums. He was referring to
Israel's complaint, conveyed
to him on his arrival at Ben
Gurion Airport by David
Kimche. Director General of

of violence and planned acts
of violence against Arabs on
the West Bank and East
Jerusalem. According to the
prosecution, the contession

Kimche, in fact, informed
the Secretary General imme-
diately on his arrival that
1 "there exists a sense of dis-
appointment and disillusion-
ment" in Israel over the UN
role in the Middle East.
De Cuellar's stopover in
Israel marked the end of his
first Middle East tour since
taking office. He visited
Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and
Jordan in that order. He
said, on his arrival, that he
hoped to achieve "something
of benefit to Israel and the

earnestly hope that we may
together be able to agree on
some constructive, positive,
just steps in order to improve
the present situation in the

he fielded questions
ine the experiences of his
audience with his, "Rabbi,
it's not easy for me to speak
about 20 years, because when
I was 20 years old, I felt like
I was 90!"
Thus, the writer of
dybbuks, seances, thieves and
penitents brought his
perennial nonagenarian's
views to bear on Jewish life
in the shtetl and America,
and shed some well-received
hopefulness on the continua-
tion of Jewish culture in a
land where he himself once
felt lost.
Reminiscing on his arrival
in America in 1935, Singer
said he encountered "so

Socialism, Capitalism" that
he then described the Jew.-
"an idolatrous
People, he said

But, he continued, he
didn t come here "with a
message to improve America.
I came to improve myself."
Focusing on the nostalgia
for the shtetl which forms a
backdrop for so much of his
popular works, Singer
couldn't resist a tease about
its new-found glamour and
remarks about its possible
resurrection. "It would be
very silly to build a shtetl in
New Jersey. To resurrect a
shtetl so that tourists will
come, that would be verv
silly." '

Weizman, who quit Herut
some years ago over policy
differences with then Premier
Menachem Begin, resumed
political activity recently
when he announced that he
would stand for election in
July at the head of a new
party, Yahad (Together).
He declined to comment on
the possibility of an alliance
with the Liberal Party. He
said he would welcome in
principle a strong centrist
liberal bloc. "This is what I
expected Likud to be but
since it did not fulfill the
expectations, we formed
Yahad," Weizman said. He
said he would wait until the
last minute before publishing
Yahad's election list, a hint
that a deal with the Liberals
may be in the making.
Some Liberals are upset
over a split with Herut.

the party's Tel Aviv branch
said, "I am not concerned
over the agreement with
Herut but I am concerned
that if Likud does not

The Herut Central Com-
mittee had scheduled a
meeting to decide whether or
not to go to the polls in July
without the Liberals. Begin,
who has been in virtual seclu-

August, has taken no posi-
tion on Likud's internal
crisis. In one of his rare
interviews, he told a Voice of
Israel Radio reporter that it
was up to the party's insti-
tutions to decide the issue.
Some observers believe a
split in Likud may well spell
defeat for the government
party in July. But the opposi-
tion Labor Alignment has
troubles of its own, not much
different in nature from those
of Likud.
The Labor Party is inter-
ested in making room for

"We write about them,"
said Singer, "as we cannot
resurrect anything. We can be
writers, not magicians."
And, Singer emphasized, it
isn't enough to just know a
person to write about him.
"You must know his roots."
Elaborating on the legacy
left by the Jews who suffered
through the most difficult
travails. Singer said he
believes the ghetto taught the
Jew to survive. The Jews who
"lived through all the bad
times are the basis of all of
us. And the longer we can
exist, the more we can learn
from this."
Singer's reflections on the
diaspora as a whole are
equally optimistic. Although
he agreed the diaspora "was
bad from a physical point of
view," it was "very good
from a spiritual point of
view," he opined. "I don't
say it's better that we
wouldn't have been thrown
out of our land," he went
on, "but that doesn't mean
that Joshua ben Nun and the
others were any better than
us." In fact, he suggested
"the diaspora has done the
Jew a great favor."
On his most recent
published work, "The
Penitent," a tale of a New
York man whose family and
business problems lead him
on the path of religious self-
redemption to Jerusalem,
Singer pointed out that the
story's protagonist finds
solace only within the ultra-

of Tel Aviv and the kibbutz,
the penitent felt just as much
lost as he did in New York.
"The religious Jew doesn't
care where he is," said
Singer, "he cares what he is.
I wouldn't say a person who
wants to be religious must go
to Israel. He can lead a
religious life anywhere. We
didn't lose our Judaism in
the diaspora.'
He also proffered a hope
that "the people in Israel
would be united in our
He cautioned, however,
that he "cannot convince
anyone to believe in things in
which I myself have doubts."
Asked if he had resolved the
conflict between the world of
the yeshiva and the secular,
Singer replied, "I've lived
long enough to know that
you can't resolve anything."
Among the unresolved
questions in the literary world
of which Singer has become a
lauded member. Singer tried
to unravel the puzzle of the
definition of a Jewish writer.
Many American Jewish
writers, he said, claim they
are American but "happen to
be Jewish." For Singer, being
Jewish "is the very essence of
my life." But what is Jewish
writing? "If a Christian
writes about a Jewish theme,
does he then become a Jewish
writer?" he asked rhetoric-

Researcher Finds Social Gap Narrows,
Ethnic Tensions Rise
Although tension between
ethnic communities in Israel
became more acute in the
past few years the actual
social gap narrowed,
according to Professor
Yohanan Peres, a lecturer in
the University of Haifa's
Department of Sociology.
Peres made this claim during
a recent forum marking the
tenth anniversary of the Unit
for Bridging the Gap at the
University of Haifa.
The Unit helps students
Kibbutz Called Ideal for Closing
Social Gap, Integrating Youth
The kibbutz is the ideal sup-
portive setting for a long
range program aimed at
closing the social gap in
Israel and integrating
Oriental Jewish youth into
Israeli society, according to
Dr. Ivan Frank, a PhD who
is an education speicalist in
Frank, who has worked
vith high risk and juvenile
lelinquents at Kibbutz
>iachal Oz in Israel, is the
author of "The Cycle of
Learning: A Unique Educa-
tional Approach in Kibbutz"
just published by the Project
for Kibbutz Studies at
Harvard University.
He states that "The
kibbutz can create
constructive citizens of what
we call welfare cases or slum
youth." He added that
various American programs
are initiating unique peer
group methods such as the
ones employed on the kibbutz
to further integration of
underprivileged cases in
American urban environ-
According to Frank, new
programs and reforms must
continually be initiated and
evaluated in order to close
the social gap in Israel. The
drive for social integration of
Oriental youth "is a means to
strengthen the democratic
institutions of the young
Israeli state, since assimila-
tion and acculturation have
not yet succeeded as witnes-
sed by fears of growing
violence in Israeli society,"
Frank said.

According to Peres, the
social gap in economic and
educational areas narrowed
considerably in the last ten
years. A greater awareness of
ethnicity and improved
education is credited with
much of the success.
In line with these changes,
the difference in income
levels between Ashkenazim
and those whose origins lie in
Middle Eastern, African or
Asian countries dropped
from a high of 35 percent in
the 1960's to 19 percent
today. In addition, 36 percent
of those with oriental origins
now complete their high
school education. This is
double the I960's figure.
Following these trends, the
gap in birth rates between
communities is also closing.
Today, families of oriental
origin have an average of 3.6
children per family
Ashkenazim have 2.8.

Rabbi Joel Levine returns
to the pulpit with a teaching
sermon on the Torah portion,
"Balak," Friday, July 6, 8
Rabbi Levine will discuss
the theme of prophecy,
specifically, the role of non
Jews in prophecy as seen
from Biblical, rabbinic, and
Reform Jewish perspectives.
The graduating class of
Temple Beth El traveled to
Key West June 10-13 as a
special treat in recognition of
their continuing their Jewish
studies after Bar-Bat
Mitzvah, through the
completion of 8th grade. The
students were accompanied
by Ruth Levow, Education
Director and Cantor Elaine
Shapiro. Each morning the
boys and girls participated in
Shaharit services before
The graduates visited Key
West's only synagogue
B'nai Zion, and were only
made very welcome by the
rabbi of the synagogue,
Rabbi Louis Gorod and the
immediate past president,
Jack Einhorn. They heard the
history of the Jewish com-
munity in Key West which
goes back to 1887. There are
only 40 Jewish families
affiliated with the synagogue
today. They have a one-room
school, and sometimes that
small room is too big for the
number of students attend-
Einhorn told the group
that he is a "conch" which
means a native-born Key-
Wester not too many Jews
can claim that honor. The
students were also interested
in a glimpse of the Jewish

The Yiddish Cultural Group of Cresthaven, with deep
sorrow, advises of the passing of their founder and
president, Goldie Lazarus, on June 12.
Goldie Lazarus was an inspiration to all who knew her
and she will be sadly missed.

Youth Aliyah At fifty Years
among the artists who design
its greeting cards, Yehuda ii
deeply conscious of his debt:
"1 was very lucky to find, in
my time of need, the best
people who could help me,
living examples to show me
that there was still hope.
From my experience ... the
help you can give a child at
the right moment is1
enormous and has far-
reaching consequences for his I
whole life." I
Now a senior lecturer at
Bezalel. Yehuda has had
more than 31 one-man shows
of paintings and drawings.
For years, his work reflected
the pain and horror of the
Holocaust, but gradually
these themes were
supplemented, then replaced
by lighter, mystical motifs. A
resident of Jerusalem,
Yehuda is married to a
teacher at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem and
has two sons.
In 1961, during the trial of
Adolf Eichmann, Yehuda
took his vividly-detailed
Auschwitz sketches out of
their dusty portfolio. He had
been called to testify, and his
drawings, compulsively
labored over so many years
before, were entered into the
record as documentary
evidence eloquent
witnesses to the horror he
had survived.
First Jewish Astronaut Judith Resnik
fWldhuiPf 1
she was selected by NASA in
1978, she was a senior
systems engineer in product
development with Zerox
Corp., at El Segundo, Calif.
Since completing her one-year
training as an astronaut
candidate, Resnik has worked
on many projects in support
of Orbiter development.
Somehow she still found
time to become a classical
pianist and enjoys bicycling,
running, and flying during
her free time. She is unmar-
ried perhaps career
demands have put marriage
off for the present.
RESNIK'S" Jewish back-
ground goes back to Kiev,
Russia, which her paternal
grandparents fled in the late1
1920s. They first settled in,
Palestine where her father
attended a yeshiva.
Later the family moved to'
Cleveland, Ohio, where her
grandfather, Jacob, was a
shochet, and her grand-
mother, Anna, worked for
many Jewish organizations.
Her father, optometrist Dr.i
Marvin Resnik, is also active
in many Jewish causes.
In Cleveland, Resnik at-
tended Hebrew school and a
photo recently published of a
preteen Judy shows her
blessing Sabbath candles in
Sunday school. She became
bat mitzvah but is not strictly
observant today.
In a pre-flight press con-
ference that NASA permitted
with ABC News on May 22,
the intricate details of Shuttle
Mission 41-D were explained
by Commander Henry Harts-
field and his crew: pilot Mike
Coats; mission specialists
Mike Mullane, Steve Hawley,
Israel Unveils,
Two New Weapons
The defense establishment,
which traditionally unveils a
new item in its arsenal each
Independence Day, this year
disclosed two locally-
developed and produced
One is an improved war-
head for the TOW wire-
guided anti-tank missile
which can destroy the most
modern Soviet-made tanks in
the Arab arsenals. The other
is a new four-barrel 290 mm.
artillery rocket system
mounted on a modified
Centurian tank. The system
can fire four Katyushas
within 10 seconds, or singly,
to distances of from 10 to 40
The first Israel-made
Katyusha rockets made
available to the Israel1
Defense Force shortly after
the 1967 Six-Day War fired
short-range 240 mm. rockets.
Jud> Resnik; and pay load
specialist Charlie Walker
from McDonnell Douglas
ON THE telecast, Resnik
confidently discussed many
of the scientific tests to be
conducted on board the Or-
biter Discovery in technical
language only an engineer
could comprehend complete-
ly, demonstrating clearly how
fully prepared she is for this
monumental undenaking.
Some of the other "firsts"
lor Discovery's 173-mile orbit
will be the first commercial
pharmaceutical processing in
space; testing of a large solar
arrav; first flights of a new
satellite, the SVNCOM. and
a large mapping camera to be
used wuh the space shuttle in
ihe future.
Youth Aliyah
We are honoring Youth Aliyah
Serving its 50th year,
A beacon of hope to children in need
Rescued from hardship and fear
It began in 1934 when Recha Frier in Germany
Saw Jewish children torn from parents' arms
And sent to Hitler's terror camps.
They had to be saved from harm.
She implored Henrietta Szold to help her
And with great courage and resolution
They spirited the children to Palestine
Snatched from Hitler's final solution
From the time of that reign of horror
Henrietta Szold's Youth Aliyah has been there
Bringing light where there was darkness
And hope, to replace despair.
Children are our future!
They must grow strong and brave to grasp
Israel's Torch of Freedom
And fight to make it last.
And the diaspora Jews the world over
Must help Youth Aliyah remain
A shining haven for children,
"The keepers of the flame."
Brave souls have died but their ideals live on.
We still struggle to keep Israel free;
And it's the power and strength of Israeli youth
That will ensure this destiny.
And when this wondrous land of our forefather*!
Is at last free from danger and strife
The very angels in Heaven will join our songs
In praise of our peaceful life!
