aptly summed up the situa-
tion in its front page head-
line: "Divided We Stand."
The election results based on
actual vote count differ only
slightly from the computer-
ized projections based on exit
poll samplings which were
broadcast shortly after the
polls closed.
The final count, which
includes the soldiers' vote, is
expected to have a minimal
effect, if any, on the
composition of the next
Knesset. But as some
observers cautioned, even a
shift of one seat could be
The line-up of Knesset
seats is: Labor, 44; Likud 41;
Hadash Communists,
National Religious Party,
Shas and Tehiya, four seats
each; Shinui, Civil Rights
Movement and Yahad, three
seats each; Aguda Israel,
Morasha and Progressive List
for Peace, two seats each;
Tami, the one-member
faction of Yigael Hurwitz
and Rabbi Meir Kahane's
Kach Party, one seat each.
IN TERMS of possible
coalition partnerships, the
left of center Shinui and the
leftist CRM are considered
"natural" allies of Labor.
Similarly, the ultra-nationalist
Tehiya Party is Likud's ally.
On the far left, the anti-
Zionist Hadash Communists
are automatically excluded by
Labor from any coalition it
may head; nor can Labor
invite the Progressive List for
Peace, a coalition of nation-
alist Israeli Arabs and leftist
Jews who advocate a Pales-
tinian state.
Likud for its part has made
clear that it will not have
anything to do with the
Kahane faction which calls
for the forcible ouster of all
Arabs from Israel and the
occupied territories.
five religious factions which
appear to have won 13
Knesset mandates between
them. The NRP has served in
both Labor and Likud-led
governments since the found-
ing of the State but emerged
from the elections in a
weaker condition than ever.
Shas is a new religious
party, sponsored by former
Sephardic Chief Rabbi
Ovadia Yosef. The fact that
it scored as well as the
veteran NRP in its first run
for the Knesset is considered
a plus in its favor. Yosef is
regarded as a political dove
and may be amenable to an
alliance with Labor.
Morasha, another new reli-
gious faction, comprises
NRP, Emunim and Poalei
Aguda defectors and may
have hawkish leanings which
could put it in the Likud
camp. The Aguda Israel, a
member of the outgoing
Likud coalition seems to have
lost two of its four seats in
the elections and is therefore
in a weakened condition.
Tami, a religious-oriented
Sephardic faction, did even
worse, dropping from three
to one Knesset mandate.
Former Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman's new Yahad
Party performed poorly on
its first outing. Weizman
insisted that he would not be
part of any coalition and
urged the establishment of a
national unity government.

From Israel Air Force
U.S. Navy To Lease 12 Kfir Jet Fighters
Hv lAtndon Chronicle Syndicate
The U.S. Navy's expected
decision to lease 12 Kfir
fighters from the Israeli Air
Force will be accompanied by
the largest deal which Israel
Aircraft Industries (IAI) has
ever made with the U.S.
For IAI, well-informed
sources here said, the
contract to service and main-
tain the Kfirs in the United
States is worth between $65
and $75 million over the next
three years.
The U.S. Navy wants the
Kfirs because the Israeli-made
fighters are thought to do an
excellent job simulating
Soviet-made MIO-21s in
combat training exercises.
The New York Times has
reported that the Navy is in
the final stages of concluding
a separate deal with China to
buy some MIG-21s, but those
aircraft are unlikely to be
made available to the U.S.
before 1986-87.
quoted a U.S. Navy
spokesman as saying that
pending the contract with
China and the actual delivery
of the planes, the Navy will
lease the Kfirs.
"Under the terms of the
loan," it added, "Israel Air-
craft Industries will be paid
to maintain the aircraft, but
Israel will retain ownership."
In a complicated
transaction, the 12 planes will
be taken from the Israeli Air
Force. They will be leased to
the U.S. at no cost. Under a
separate contract, IAI will be
exclusively responsible for
servicing the planes at an Air
Force base in Virginia.
Navy cannot enter into any
formal barter arrangement

Air Force War on Yarmulkes: Front and Center
NEW YORK Six major Jewish organizations have
asked a federal appeals court to throw out anAir-Force
prohibition on the wearing of a skull cap or **

liberty while providing no real military benefit.
An amicus or friend-of-the court brief filed in the

permitted by his commanding officers to wear such a
head covering during his first three and a half years in
the military service. At no time was he informed that
such a practice presented a problem, even though the
wearing of a head covering indoors was technically a
violation of an Air Force dress regulation.
However, introduction of a new policy of strict
enforcement of the dress regulation led to a ruling by the
commanding officer to ban the wearing of the skull cap.
Capt. Goldman brought suit in federal district court,
claiming that his right to practice his religion was being
The court upheld him, finding that the yarmulke was
"unobtrusive" and did not interfere with his duties. The
district court decision also held that permitting an excep-
tion to the uniform regulations in this particular case did
not "erode morale and obedience," as contended by the
Air Force.
THE AIR FORCE took the case to the U.S. Court of
Appeals which reversed the lower court finding. The
appeals tribunal held that because of the Air Force s
interest in uniformity, it was permitted to use a strict
policy in enforcing the dress code, even though the
regulation itself was "arbitrary."

Israel Scout Enlightens Campers
About Jewish Homeland
Assistant News Coordinator
Forth-nine Scouts from
Israel are spending their
summer working in Jewish
day camps throughout the
United States. Selected from
a field of 400 applicants, the
young adults highlight the
Jewish homeland through
songs, games, stories, arts
and crafts, and discussions.
As in past years, the
Jewish Community Center's
Camp Shalom is once again
hosting an Israel Scout, Ruth
Dillenberger. Ruth, who has
been interacting with the
youngsters at Camp Shalom
since the middle of June, is
philosophical about her role.
"I just provide an overview
of Israel. They're too young
for me to get them to make
aliyah," the 17 year old said
with a twinkle in her eye.
Ruth thinks the Camp
Shalom kids are terrific.
"They inquire about the
posters on Israel that I made
and hung up around the
room and are always asking
me how to say words in
Hebrew," she said.
Ruth, who lives in Kfar
Shmaryahu, a town of 1500
people north of Tel Aviv, has
been an Israel Scout since the
fourth grade. Now, a senior
in high school, she co-leads
her own eighth grade scout
group. "The Israel Scouts are
part of the Zionist move-
ment. We focus a lot on Israel
and current events. Half of
our time is spent in discus-
sions, half in activities,
Ruth said.
Although she has made
many friends here with whom
she plans to keep in touch,
she has found that the
subject of their conversations
are not the same as with her
friends in Israel. "Israeli
teenagers are more aware ot
politics and of what's hap-
pening around them. The
teenagers here don't have to
go into the army. At 20 years
old thev are still living at
home. In Israel, they are
more independent," Ruth
Ruth has also discovered
that American youths drink
more alcoholic beverages
than their Israeli counter-
parts. "Drinking is not the
main thing in Israel. There
are more parties, more
dancing and more dating as
couples, not groups," she
Food is another area in
which Ruth made compar-
isons. She didn't hesitate in
stating her dislike of peanut
butter and McDonald's
hamburgers, but really has
taken a liking to cream
cheese. "I like all kinds of
cheeses but we don't have
anything like cream cheese in
Israel. I love it," Ruth said.
What does she substitute for
peanut butter and jelly

t challenge of devel-
the day school into a
of the finest education
available for Jewish children
anywhere. "The highlights of
the school's tradition that at-

Mrs. Steinberg.
Mrs. Steinberg, who served
as director of the Solomon
Schechter Day School of
Raritan Valley, East
Brunswick, N.J. since it was
established in 1981, is
impressed with this area's
extremely involved Jewish
community which holds
Jewish education as a priority
and the day school as a par-
ticularly strong concern. "I
also am pleased that this day
school is truly a community
school in that we will
represent and teach our
students about all the move-

will give them a broad under-
standing of the variety of
Jewish experiences," she

tter From Refusenik Sparks Excitement
Shifrin's aging
grandparents were allowed to
emigrate to Israel with the
assurance that within a few
months after their departure,
their son would be permitted
to join them. Mrs. Berger
notes that the destruction of
the family unit continues as
the letter she received made
mention that the families
have even been separated
within Russia.
Vladislav's wife, Ludmila,
is a 29 year old English
teacher. Both the Shifrins
have been denied the right to
practice their professions.
"I'm concerned about them
because they speak of their
move to a new town which
indicates to me that they may
have moved to an inferior
place. He's no longer
practicing and it's obvious
from the letter that she is not
working at her profession
either," Mrs. Berger said.
As a member of the Soviet
Jewry Task Force, Mrs.
Berger is aware of the need
for steady correspondence,
not only with the adopted
family but with Soviet and
American government
officials. To increase the
amount of contacts on behalf
of the Shifrins, Mrs. Berger
has involved two organ-
izations in which she is most
active. Members of Olam
Chapter of B'nai B'rith
Women of which Mrs. Berger
is the Public Affairs chair-
man, have sent postcards to

been returned to me so this
was so unexpected. Now, to
increase their chances of
receiving my correspondence,
I plan to send duplicate
letters, one by registered mail
and one by regular mail,"
Mrs. Berger said.
Mrs. Berger, who was an
elementary school supervisor
berfore retiring with her
husband, Sidney, to this area
in 1978, received information
on her adopted family along
with their picture from the
Soviet Jewry Task Force.
"When I saw the picture, I
thought I would cry. I have
pictures of my own sisters
going back 75 years with
bows in their hair just like
the Shifrin daughters have,"
Mrs. Berger stated. Simona
Shifrin is eight and her sister,
Anna, is sue.
Their father, Vladislav
Semyonovitch, a 32 year old
gynecologist who has been a
refusenik since 1979, is also
the son of a refusenik.
Although he received an
invitation to be reunited with
his grandparents in Israel, his
application was refused on
grounds that "grandparents
are not direct relatives.
Shifrin's father was also
refused, even though he is the
son of the parents with whom

From Russia, With Love
The following letter was received by Sylvia
Berger from her adopted Soviet refusenik
Dear Mrs. Sylvia Berger!
We were very glad to receive your letter.
It was the second letter we have received
the first was sent by our grand-parents
from Israel. Our address now is: USSR,
Lytovskaya SSR, Kaunas, ul. Medvegalio,
23, DV. 43. Shifrin Vladislav Semynovitch.
We are very glad that you have now the
picture of our family. We would be glad to
have the picture of yours too. We send our
best wishes to your all so fine family and
hope to meet once. But this hope is
diminishing with years, and now I often
think about what to do. We have only
grandparents in Israel, and they are very
old: grandfather is 90 years old, and
grandmother is 85 years. They are very
alone now. They went to Israel five years
ago in hope that we soon shall be there.
But, we didn't receive the exit visa permit.
The reason of refuse was: "the
insufficiency of relationship."
My husband's parent's lived in Charckov,
now they will live in (Zdahov) Azov Sea.
We don't know what to do now.
Kaunas is a beautiful town, very original.
There are many interesting things there,
especially in old town. Maybe you our your
children could ever visit us we'll glad to
see you, whenever you come!
Dear Mrs. Sylvia Berger, you are asking
about our birthdays. They are: Simona,
6.27.1976; Anna 2.3.1978; my husband,
7.27.1951; mine, 5.31.1953. We should like
also to send you birthday greetings and so
please send us your birthdays.
I'll hope, you excuse my English I've
forgotten almost at all, and was to use the
dictionary to write this letter.
Sincerely yours,

year term.
stances, it is considered likely
that Labor and Likud would
press jointly for legislation
aimed at reducing the number
of small parties in the
Knesset. This can be done by-
raising the threshold above
the present one percent of the
vote necessary for a Knesset
Politicians also predict
moves within Labor and pos-
sibly Likud to replace their
current party leaderships
before a new election
campaign begins. According
to some analysts, Shimon
Peres, who failed in three
elections to lead Labor to a
decisive victory, will be
replaced by former Premier
Yitzhak Rabin; possibly,
former President Yitzhak
Savon, who, being of
Sephardic origin, ma> be best

She's An Avid Supporter of Israel

Rep. Gcraldine Ferraro
(D., N.Y.), who was selected
by former Vice President
Walter Mondale as his
running mate in his campaign
for the Presidency, is one of
Israel's most avid supporters
in Congress.
Mondale announced the
selection of the 48-year-old
mother of three as the first
candidate for Vice President
of a major party in
Minneapolis, breaking
precedent by naming his
choice for Vice President
before his official nomination
by the Democratic national
convention in San Francisco.
Ferraro, who represents a
district in the New York City
Borough of Queens, has
voted 100 percent in favor of
Israel during her six years in
Congress. She is among the
first to sign any bill sup-
porting Israel, including the
current measures to move the
U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv
to Jerusalem and to create a
free trade area between Israel
and the United States.
This spring, she visited
Israel in the company of
Reps. Barbara Kennelly (D.,
Conn.) and Barbara Mikulski
Continued from Page 1
The amicus brief asks the
appeals court to rehear the
case and uphold the district
court decision in favor of
Capt. Goldman. The case, it
says, pits the constitutional
right of religion against the
interests of military discipline
and raises the issue of
"whether an Orthodox Jew
who wishes to serve his
country is unwelcome in the
Air Force."
Citing previous Supreme
Court decisions, the brief
notes that restrictions on the
free exercise of religion
"must be scrutinized strictly
and must be justified by a
compelling governmental
interest." Only interests "of
the highest order" can over-
ride legitimate claims to the
free exercise ol religion, it
points out.
THL BRIEF notes that
Capt. Goldman had been
permitted to wear a yarmulke
during his first three and a
hall years ol service and that
the practice had proved so
innocuous and unobtrusive it
had created no morale
problems and had not inter-
fered with his performance of
his duties.
If the Air Force had a
"truly compelling" interest in
the challenged regulation, the
need to enforce it might have
been so critical as to justify
keeping Orthodox Jews out
of that branch of the service,
the brief concedes. But it
maintains that such a
"compelling interest" is not
present in the Goldman case
and the Air Force is thus not
justified in violating the
constitutional guarantee of
religious freedom.
The amicus brief was
prepared by Ronald A.
Krauss, Lois C. Waldman
and Marc D. Stern of the
American Jewish Congress
legal staff.
Ferraro is chairman of the
Platform Committee of the
Democratic National
Convention which has recom-
mended a strong pro-Israel
plank, including a pledge to
move the U.S. Embassy to
Jerusalem. The platform was
voted on at the convention.
Ferraro has strong ties with
the Jewish community in her
district and is considered very
sensitive to Jewish issues.
One story that she has been
telling is that after she hired
a young Jew in her district
office, his mother was espe-
cially pleased by her practice
of attending services every
Friday night in a different
synagogue since her new aide
has to accompany the
Congresswoman. "It has
taken an Italian woman to
get my son to go to syna-
gogue," the mother said.
The selection of Ferraro
may help counteract the
damage in the Jewish
community to the Mondale
campaign, caused by the Rev.
Jesse Jackson. Mondale said
that he could not select
Jackson as his Vice Presi-
dential running mate because
of the deep differences
between them.
Mondale, in naming
Ferraro, said that although
the choice had been difficult
at first, it became easy be-
cause of the basic message he
wanted to stress in the
upcoming campaign against
President Reagan. "We must
go into the future together as
one indivisible community,"
he said. "America is not just
foi some of us America
is for everyone who works
hard and contributes to our
blessed country."
l-erraro, who was accom-
panied by her husband, John
Zaccaro, also stressed this
theme. "American history is
about doors being opened,
doors of opportunty for
everyone no matter who you
are as long as you are willing
to earn it," she said.

Israel: The High Cost Of Security
Since its emergence as a
sovereign state 36 year* ago,
Israel and its people have
paid a heavy price to live in
security and independence. In
Israel's longest and costliest
war, the War of Indep-
endence (1948-49), the 6,000
dead represented one percent
of the population of the new
state. Since then, the Israel
Defense Forces (IDF) has
fought five wars the Sinai
Campaign (1956), the Six
Day War (1967), the War of
Attrition on the Suez Canal
(1969-71), the Yom Kippur
War (1973) and the recent
Peace for Galilee War against
the PLO in Lebanon (1982).
Throughout this period,
Israel has, in addition, been
engaged in a continuous war
against Arab terrorist attacks.
A Heavy Price
While the financial cost of
war cannot, of course, be
compared with the price paid
in dead and wounded, the
economic demands that
defense exacts from Israel's
limited resources is never-
theless staggering.
Israel's Gross National
Product (GNP) of some $25
billion annually is the per
capita equivalent of Great
Britain, a highly developed
country. Bui Israel currently
spends 33 percent of its GNP
on defense. This is, by far,
the highest proportion of
expenditure by any western
industrialized nation. By
contrast, the United States
spends only some 6-7 percent
of its GNP on defense. Israeli
citizens pay for this with the
highest taxes in the world.
The massive defense costs
inevitably affect Israel's
economy, its standard of
living and its ability to
achieve economic indep-
endence. The implications for
the economy of the fact that
Israelis up to the age of 53
serve on reserve duty in the
army is also readily apparent.
An Expensive Military
A recent press release from
the Israel Defense Forces
spokesman's office proves an
unusual insight into the day-
to-day expenditures of the
army. The IDF spends $1.50
per day to feed each soldier,
while battle rations cost $2.50
per day. A pair of boots is
priced at $44, a winter jacket
costs $34 and a flak jacket is
valued at $303. A standard
Galil rifle costs $515, while
each bullet is worth 16 cents.
These relatively modest costs
accumulate rapidly when
multiplied by the tens of
thousands of soldiers serving
in the IDF.
Expenditures in other areas
are even larger. A Merkava
(Israel-made) tank costs a
million dollars and eats up
$300 of gas an hour. A
missile boat consumes $1,000
worth of fuel an hour, while
helicopters can use up
between $500 to $1,500 of
gas per hour.
Most expensive of all in the
army's inventory is aircraft.
An American-manufactured
F-16 jet fighter costs $36
million, while an F-15
fighter-bomber is va'ued at
$52 million. Flying the F-15
for an hour costs $7,000.
The High Cost of Military
The costs for even the most
sophisticated weapons
systems pale when compared,
for example, to the expen-
ditures involved in
construction of an airbase.
When Israel withdrew from
the Sinai in 1982, billions of
dollars had to be invested in
new facilities to replace those
vacated in accordance with
the provisions ol me
Egyptian-Israel peace agree-
ment. Uvda, just one of the
three new airbases con-
structed in the Negev costs
one-and-a-half billion dollars
to build.
Can Israel Maintain Its
Qualitative Edge?
As long as the Arab states
maintain their state of war
with Israel, there seems little
hope of curbing Israel's costs
for defense. As each year
passes, military hardware
becomes more sophistiated
and the cost of preserving
Israel's qualitative advantage
over its Arab adversaries
Israel had always been able
to preserve a qualitative mil-
itary edge over its opponents
because of such factors as
morale, motivation, training
and technological advance-
ment. But with the huge
Influx of sophisticated arm
to Israel's Arab neighbors, i
is difficult to measure a
what point quantity might
overwhelm quality.
A recent report published
by the U.S. Arms Control
and Disarmament Agency on
The "World Military
Expenditures and Arms
Transfers 19L72"1982'
indicates that the arms
imports of Iraq, Syria Saudi
Arabia. Libya. Kuwait.
Jordan and Egypt have
exceeded those of Israel by a
ratio ranging from 7.4-to-l,
up to 17.9-to-l. every year
since 1978.
In 1982 alone. 42 percent
of the world's $36.5 billion
worth of arms transfers went
to Middle Eastern countries.
Almost 40 percent went to
Arab states, while less than
thre percent went to Israel.
Arab States The World's
Leading Arms Importers
The world's five leading
arms importers and the
amounts they received in
1982 were in billions:
Saudi Arabia
Israel imported about SI
billion worth in weaponry in
As another recent report
commissioned by the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee notes,
Israel's qualitative edge is di-
minishing as the Arab states
continue to modernize their
armed forces and increase
their numerical arms advant-
age. As the author of the
report, a military analyst at
Tel Aviv University's Jaffee
Center for Strategic Studies,
writes: "Israel does not stand
a chance of bridging the
quantitative gap," while its
qualitative lead is being
systematically reduced" a<
he Soviet Union, Europe anj
he United States provide the
the Arab nations.
The study indicates that
between 1976 and 1980, the
five Arab states of Syria
Iraq Jordan, Saudi Arabia
and Egypt outspent Israel in
arms imports by more than
475 percent! l~
The Syrian Example
Syria alone is currently
being supplied with an
unprecedented list of the
latest Soviet military hard-
ware, some of which has
never before been deployed
outside the Warsaw Pact, it
is in America's interest, aiso,
to enable Israel to counter
such weapons that pose a
threat not only to Israel, bui
to U.S. interests in the region
as well.

EARLIER THIS year, in a
major development, the navy
purchased Israeli-made pilot-
less reconnaissance aircraft.
There have also been
increased U.S. Sixth Fleet
visits to Haifa.
Israeli officials cited the
political importance of
having the U.S. Navy incor-
porate Israeli-made aircraft
fighters a further indica-
tion of the improved state of
military ties between Wash-
ington and Jerusalem.
Holding up the actual
signing of the Kfir lease is the
final Congressional approval
of the navy's 1985 appropria-
tion budget.
Moshe Arens, meanwhile, has
expressed hope that Israel
eventually will be able to
export its new-generation
Lavi fighter to the United
In an interview with the
Wall Street Journal, Arens
said the "amazing" flight of
the Lavi is just beginning.
"It could conceivably
happen if the airplane turns
out to be as good as we hope
it's going to be," he said,
referring to possible export
sales to the U.S.
No Lavis are expected to
be ready for export until well
into the 1990s, after the plane
is introduced into the Israeli
Air Force.
Arens said that sales of
what he called "the big
systems" will multiply Israeli
military exports in the
coming years. Already, Israel
is reported to sell worldwide
some $1 billion a year in mil-
itary equiment.
"We want to be in a situa-
tion where we're reasonably
independent, where it's dif-
ficult to put the clamps on us
as the result of dependence,
of one sort or another, on
another country," said

Fanny Schwartz, president of Lake Worth Chapter,
announced that the four Groups Aliya, Chai, Lee Vassil
and Henrietta Szold will send 23 delegates to the 70th
National Convention of Hadassah which will meet at the
San Francisco Hilton Hotel, Aug. 26-29.
This year, the annual convention, which is the policy-
making body of Hadassah, will elect a new national
president. In addition, the delegates will adopt positions,
set goals, approve budgets for the year ahead, and
participate in seminars and workshops. The delegates
also will honor distinguished personalities and hear
addresses by government leaders and international
authorities in fields related to Hadassah's activities.

Judy Matz, chairman of
the Adopt-A-Family program
for the South Florida
Conference on Soviet Jewry,
affirms that over the ten
years of the program's
implementation in South
Florida, perseverance pays
off. Of the 150 adopted
families, about one-quarter
have been heard from.
"However, whenever anyone
gets an exit visa, we hear that
this program has been crucial
to their morale. People's
letter writing efforts do
afford the refuseniks
protection. The Soviet
government does not come
down as hard when they
know these families are
remembered by those in the
West," stated Mrs. Matz.
The letter Mrs. Berger
received will not only keep
the Shifrins visible locally.
but throughout the West. In
addition to notifying Mrs.
Matz, Mrs. Berger wrote to
Secretary ot State George
Shultz whose office asked for
updated information on the
status of the Shifrin's exit

also be sent to the
grandparents in Israel.

addresses of refusenik
families and begin their own
correspondence. They will
provide a lifeline between
courageous Soviet Jews who
seek to live feely as Jews and
we who live in freedom."

Each camper's name as well as the name and address
of the camp had been printed on a postcard which
was then attached to helium filled balloons. The
finder of the ballon was asked to mail the postcard to
the camp.
Released amidst a chorus of "oohs" and "aahs,"
the brightly colored balloons rose to the West. The
child whose card denotes the furthest postmark will be
declared the winner.
How far did the balloons travel last year? A coun-
selor-in-training offered the answer. "The only one
that was received was from Lake Worth." May the
winds and the ones who find a balloon be favorable
this year! ---------
UPDATE: Hareen Bertisch, Camp Shalom director,
contacted prior to publication noted that the staff was
\ery excited about the receipt of three postcards
already. The contest extends to the last day of camp
but the furthest postmark received to date was from
three miles north of Morehaven, Fla. That card be-
longs to Dan Melman, a junior counselor at the
camp. Eight year old Danny Kotok's postcard came
from Okeechobee while the card of camper Gregory
Atrani.i, seven, came from Ft. Pierce.

Tisha B* AvThe Ninth of Av
Tisha b'Av (Tuesday,
Aug.7) marks the end of a
three week period of semi-
mourning beginning with the
17th of Tammuz, also a fast
day. The nine days from the
beginning of Av to Tisha
b'Av mark an intensified
mourning period; many
people abstain from meat and
wine, refrain from shaving,
from buying new clothes, and
from varius forms of enter-
Tisha b'Av is a fast day in
commemoration of the
various disasters and trage-
dies which have befallen the
Jewish people throughout
history. The central mourning
is over the destruction of the
Temple an event which
marked the initiation of the
exile. This has both physical
as well as spiritual dimen-
sions. As Israel was divided
from the land, so too was the
Shekhinah the Divine
Presence. To the kabbalists
the day represented the
nature of the world's
incompleteness and the great
need for tikkun repair
(returning the Shekhinah to
her place). Although there is
a temptation to concentrate
on the Holocaust, this should
be resisted, so as not to blur
distinctions or lose sight of
the essence of the day.
Aspects of the day include:
The fast begins at sundown
(Monday, Aug. 6 ).
No leather is worn.
The Book of Lamentations
is read at night while sitting
on the floor or on low stools.
Candlelight is used for the
After the chanting, kinot
_ a form of dirge are
said. These are also said in
the morning.
Tallit and tefillin are not
worn for Shaharit.
At Minhah, tallit and
tefillin are put on and there is
a Torah reading.
In both services, there is an
addition to the Amidah that
makes special reference to
Tisha b'Av.
One is supposed to study
on Tisha a'Av only those sec-
tions of the Talmud which
deal with the destruction of
the Temple.

Youth Aliyah Today
This last part of a series on
Youth Aliyah profiles a
young adult living in Israel
today who was "rescued"
from a life of neglect and
poverty by Youth Aliyah.
"My father had five
daughters," explains Orly
Zamir, "and each time, he
wanted a son. 1 grew up
convinced that 1 could never
do anything to please him. 1
guess I just gave up."
The youngest child of Ira-
qi immigrants who came to
Israel in 1960, Orly lived in
Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv.
Only six months after Orly
was born, her mother suf-
fered a painful miscarriage
and withdrew into stony
silence a "nervous condi-
tion," the neighbors called it.
Rejected by her father and
receiving no support from her
mother, Orly grew up over-
dependent on her sisters, a
clinging child, easily driven to
tears and unable to establish
friendships on her own.
Depression and lack of
confidence interfered with her
ability to learn, and she did
poorly in school.
When the school social
worker visited the Zamir
home, she found it clean but
cold and uninviting. Orly was
referred to the residential
Youth Aliyah school of
Kiryat Yearim. Her first
hurdle was acute home-
sickness and loneliness for
her sisters. But eventually,
she settled in and made her
first tentative approach to
some girls in the group. Two
years later, having overcome
emotional and learning
difficulties, Orly left Kiryat
Yearim for an agricultural
high school.
While she was there, Orly
learned that her mother had
recovered. Orly went home
for a while, to prove to her
father that "a girl can also
do something, and he should
no longer be sorry that he
doesn't have sons."
Orly has now completed
her IDF service and is study-
ing painting at Tel A\i\v
University. A serious student,
poised, in control of herself
and in command of her life,
Orly remains profoundly
grateful to Youth Aliyah, the
Youth Aliyah of the 1980's,
for guiding her to emotional
and intellectual maturity.
Divorce-Intermarriage Link
Continued from Page 2
* riage has increased, among
the third native-born genera-
tion of American Jews, to
one in three "but contrary to
popular stereotype, divorce is
no more frequent among
mixed marriages than it is
among the partners of mar-
riages between born Jews."
Winer asserted that all the
evidence indicates that the
"Jewish future" is best
served by marriage between
born Jews, adding that
Jewish identity "uniquely
combines ethnic solidarity
and religious observance" of
Jewish traditions, while
partners of mixed marriages
"show little concern for both
these facets.
He contended that
"mounting evidence suggests
that a previous divorce is the
most powerful predictor of a
future intermarriage.
Research has shown that
intermarriage is four to ten
times more prevalent among
second marriages than among
first marriages. Jews who
would not consider interfaith
marriages in their first mar-
riages accept it readily in
their remarriages."
Winer suggested three
explanations of why divorce
may lead to intermarriage.
He said the first is that most
persons entering second mar-
riages have completed their
child-bearing and the matter
of religious training for their
children is moot.
He said a second is that
despite its increased inci-
dence, divorce is still consid-
ered "deviant" behavior in
our society. Divorced Jews

typically experience a sense of
being outsiders in
synagogues, which are gener-
ally structured around the
life-style of the intact family.
"Their divorces facilitate
involvement in a second form
of deviant behavior: inter-
Winer said the third
explanation involves what
sociologists call
"propinquity, the availability
of potential marital choices
within one's age group and
geographic area. Previous re-
search has shown that the
highest rates of Jewish inter-
marriage occur in the areas
with the lowest Jewish
population." Also, divorced
Jews encounter "a far lower
number of Jewish marriage
prospects than were available
before they first married."
Winer concluded that syna-
gogue leaders "can act to
alter future intermarriage
statistics by helping Jews who
have been divorced to feel
less 'deviant' within the com-
munity. Through singles
programs which will counter
the propinquity problems
among single Jews,"
synagogues may be able to
"maximize the concentration
of potential marriage choices
within various age groups. To
a remarkable extent doing
what's right for Jewish
singles may turn out to be the
most successful strategy for
reducing the increase in
Jewish intermarriage."

longer tethered to the Com-

of the coalition headed by
former Premier Pierre

a stronger pro-Israel stance
than its predecessor, diplo-

Although foreign policy is
the exclusive province of the
President under the French
Constitution, President
Francois Mitterrand had been
