' ormer Soviet Jews:
Gorbachev Not Likely To Change Anything
I JERUSALEM (JTA) Jewish emigrants from
leSoviet Union have warned that it was foolish and
Ingerous to assume that the change of leadership in
le Kremlin would end repressive measures against
s in the USSR.
[Addressing a press conference here, members of
le Israel Information Center on Soviet Jewry
aintained that with respect to Jews, the policies of
l*U' Soviet leader' Mikhail Gorbachev, would be
different from those of his predecessors. They
Jke scornfully of the view expressed in some
lestern circles that Gorbachev, the youngest Soviet
*der since Stalin seized the reins of power on
pm s death, heralded a new, better era in Soviet
I HE MAY be good looking, well dressed, and so
is his wife," speakers said, but that has no bearing on
his policy towards Jews. They described Gorbachev
as a bureaucrat who began his career in the Stalin era
and could therefore be described as a disciple of the
late Soviet dictator.
Worldwide optimism over his ascencion to power
is misplaced, serves Soviet interests and allows them
to continue their repression of Jews, they said.
Yosef Mendelevich, chairman of the Center, who
served time in Soviet prisons for his activism on
behalf of Jewish emigration rights, said the swift
elevation of Gorbachev to the office of General
Secretary of the Communist Party within hours of
the death of President Konstantin Chernenko should
serve as a warning that no changes are in the offing.
ACCORDING TO Mendelevich, Gorbachev was
the de facto leader in recent months when Chernenko
was immobilized by ill health. In that period, he
noted, there was not only no improvement in the
situation of Soviet Jews but it in fact deteriorated.
Other speakers cited individual cases as examples
of the worsening treatment of Soviet Jews in recent
months. Dan Shapiro, a Jewish activist who asked
for and received Israeli citizenship while living in the
USSR, was arrested. The conditions under which
Aleksandr Kholmiansky and Yosef Bernstein are
imprisoned have worsened.
In the past six months, Kholmiansky went on a
hunger strike. He was force-fed. Bernstein was at-
tacked by inmates serving time for criminal offenses
and almost lost his vision. The prison authorities
transferred him to a labor camp where, despite his
poor health, he is forced to do hard labor.

memorated the 40th anniversary
of their historic victory at Iwo
Jima, Roland Gittlesohn, Rabbi
Emeritus of Temple Israel of
Boston, Mass., shared with this
reporter his battlefield recollec-
tions of that bloody struggle.
Gittlesohn, the only Jewish
Chaplain of the Fifth Marine
Division, landed on D-Day Plus
Two. Like the other Marines, he
immediately dug in, to protect
himself against withering Japanese
fire. Then, during the first tem-
porary surcease of the mortar and
artillery attacks, he moved out to
be with men in the fox holes.
The rabbi estimated that there
were approximately 1,500 Jewish
Marines on the island of whom at
least ISO were killed and 400
wounded. The number of Jewish
casualties many have been
proportionately higher than the
non-Jews, because of the large
number of Jewish Navy medical
corpsmen who suffered especially
heavy losses as they administered
first-aid under battle fire.
GITTLESOHN spent five
weeks on Iwo Jima serving Jew
and Gentile alike. He recalls
vividly trying to get a special Red
Cross message to a Jewish Marine
named Herman with the good
news that his wife had just given
birth to a baby; by the time he
found him, the new father was
Mass burial ceremonies were
conducted on an interreligious
basis because "so many of the
bodies were simply pieces of bone
and shreds of flesh in sacks."
After the victorious battle, the
senior division chaplain selected
Gittlesohn to deliver the sermon at
the dedication of the 5th Marine
Division Cemetery. All the
division Catholic chaplains and
most of the Protestant chaplains
threatened to boycott the
ceremony with their men if the
Jewish chaplain gave that sermon.
When Gittlesohn learned of this
threat, he immediately asked to be
relieved of the assignment to avoid
a controvery that might endanger

Israeli Film Wins Major
Critics' Award In Venice
The eternal problem of
Jewish-Arab relationships in
the Middle East, is portrayed
in the recently released Israeli
movie, "Beyond the Walls,"
which focuses on criminal and
political prisoners in an Israeli
maximum security prison.
Directed by Israeli film
director Uri Barabash, the
film has won the International
Film Critics' Prize in Venice,
as well as Israel's Oscar for
best movie of 1984.
The film itself tells the story
of love, hatred and the
prisoners' struggle against
their fate. Yet what starts out
as a marked confrontation
between Jewish criminal and
Arab political prisoners turns
into a realization of who their
real enemy is: the prison
Straight out of the prison
genre, "Beyond the Walls"
has the additional element of
focusing on the Jewish-Arab
conflict. Its implication that a
Jewish-Arab dialogue would
be possible without the
"authorities" did not prevent
this film from receiving
government aid and
representing Israel abroad.
The movie centers on a
small group of prisoners:
Uri played by Arnon Zadok,
rebellious, sentenced to 12
years imprisonment for armed
robbery and the leader of the
Jewish prisoners; Assaf,
played by Assi Dayan,
youngest son of the late Moshe
Dayan, an Israeli ex-
paratrooper convicted of
being in contact with the PLO;
and Issam, played by
Muhammed Bakri ) tall, lean,
fair and blue-eyed con-
victed for terrorist acts in the
service of the PLO, and the
leader of the Arab political
The set for the film was
built in an unused warehouse
in Jaffa, and here the story is
played out: from powerfully
depicted microcosms of Israeli
society, such as the Sephardi-
Ashkenazi problem and the
Jewish-Arab conflict,
"Beyond the Walls" explores
examples of corruption,
blackmail, drug-dealing,
family relationships and the
question of loyalty.
Director Uri Barabash,
interviewed on the thoughts
and motivations behind the
movie, said, "It's not a
biography, but it's intimate
film. To live in Israel, in the
Middle East, nowadays,
you're put in a Jewish-Arab
dialogue For me, war is
not just a theoretical
argument, it means whether
I'm going to live or not .
"In our film, no one tries to
escape, but at the end,
everyone is free, because they
make a choice. You can be
behind bars and still be free.
It's not only physical walls but
also the walls of prejudice."
Work on the movie included
six months of intensive
research in an Israeli
maximum security prison in
the Town of Ramie. Barabash
said they spend days and
nights with the prisoners in
order to get a realistic idea of
prison life. Yet, his film

Dwight Baber made telephone calls to solicit dollars for the campaign. Rick
Reinkenas, his opponent in the recent election, was also on hand to greet the
volunteers and lend his support to the effort.
During the Federation sponsored TV program, "Mosaic," which was
scheduled to be broadcast live (due to technical difficulties it was taped for
presentation on the following Sunday), several presentations were made. Rabbi
Howard Shapiro of Temple Israel and three representatives of his confirmation
class, Alissa Debs, Jill Cohn and Amy Fine, presented a check for $552 which
was collected during the Students' Plea for Ethiopian Jewry sponsored by the
class. Barbara Steinberg, director of the Jewish Community Day School,
brought a check for $258 that was collected by the day school students for Super
Sunday. The last presentation consisted of a check for $141 that was earned by
youth from the Jewish Community Youth Council during their car wash.

ADL Demands End To
Egyptian Anti-Semitism
NEW YORK The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith has called upon
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak to act against the
"vicious anti-Semitism"
emanating from his country.
"It is unlikely," the League
said, "that a secure lasting
peace will be achieved as long
as anti-Semitism remains a
significant factor in Egypt."
"Although anti-Semitism is
not an official policy, there is
an anti-Jewish undercurrent in
Egypt today which is found at
all levels of society and in-
fluences political attitudes,"
according to an article
prepared for the ADL
Bulletin, the League's national
H. Foxman, ADL's associate
national director and head of
its International Affairs
Division, and Kenneth
Jacobson, director of the
Middle Eastern Affairs
Department, the article
declares that "some of the
most vicious anti-Semitic
writings to be found anywhere
have come out of Egypt
"The threat of this anti-
Semitism cannot be measured
quantitatively," Foxman and
lacobson write. "The problem
eally lies in its stubborn hold
>n society and in its use in the
political arena."
The article reports that
President Mubarak told four
visiting U.S. Congressmen last
year that he totally opposed
the expressions of anti-
Semitism found in Egyptian
media. The expressions
diminished for a few months
and then continued at an
increased rate.
IT STATES that although
ADL has been aware of the
level of anti-Semitism present
in Egypt, the agency looked to
the Sadat peace treaty for
indications of emerging new
pragmatic attitudes in Egypt,
not only for the Jewish State
but for the Jewish people.
However, the article goes
on, Egypt has increasingly
"made a mockery of the word
'normalization' between the
two states." Trade, cultural
exchanges, diplomacy and
tourism are at a standstill.
The ADL spokesmen charge
that while some attribute this
to Israeli political activity in
Lebanon and on the West
Bank, "it would be a serious
miscalculation to blame
politics alone as the cause of
current strains."
THEY NOTE that the
Islamic world has long ac-
corded an inferior status to
Jews and that the link between
attitudes toward Jews and
toward Israel is profound.
"Although Anwar Sadat
broke through that ideology of
rejectionism, the current
manifestations of anti-
Semitism," they say, "appear
to be not only a reflection of
Egypt's unwillingness to move
toward a new posture vis-a-vis
Israel, but to be the root of
that unwillingness to change."
The authors cite numerous
instances of blatant anti-
Semitism in writings, in the
media, both government-
controlled and the opposition
press, as well as in books from
the '60's and '70's. In ad-
dition, new books are ap-
pearing with centuries-old
anti-Semitic motifs.
"It is critical," Foxman and
Jacobson declare, "to expose
this poison and to insist that
Egyptian officials begin to
make serious efforts toward
discouraging anti-Semitic
outbursts and to educate their
people about living on equal
terms with Israel and the Jews.
"Anti-Semitism," they
conclude, "will not disappear.
What is called for is an ex-
tensive education effort aimed
at the Egyptian people."
an Israeli prison. It's an
imaginary story everything
is out of our imagination but it
was inspired by our research
. It's a detailed reality
which we created ..."
Work on the film was not
always so easy, Barabash said.
"We knew we were going to
have a set with Jewish and
Arab actors, some of whom
were ex-prisoners. It was
almost a time-bomb, since
some of the jailers were real
Yet the movie works
through a series of highlights
in a dramatic and moving way
with excellent acting and re-
occurring haunting music. The
arrival of Assaf, the Israeli
convicted of covert contacts
with the PLO, evokes a violent
response on the partb of the
Jewish prisoners, who regard
him as a traitor.
From then on, each
character provokes a different
part of the story. "The
Nightingale," played by
Israeli singer Boaz Sharabi,
for example, performs in the
Israeli Song Festival and wins
second prize with his Ten li
yad (Give me your hand). It is
during the festival that a news
broadcast reports a terrorist
attack, provoking conflict
between the two sets of
prisoners and indirectly
leading to Hoffman, a Jewish
prisoner's, death.
A shadowy, ominous-
looking Arab obviously

trouble carries out the deed

inciting violence between
Jewish and Arab prisoners and
casting the blame into the
Arab camp.

prison authorities, but it takes

With a budget of about
$450,000, "Beyond 2
Walls" offers a rare and
optimistic conclusion to the
Jewish-Arab puzzle: With the
casting for the movie
Barabash tried to avoid type'
casting by having a dark-
skinned Jew (Uri) and a fair
blue-eyed Arab (Issam) -
contrary to the usual images
However he added that the
actors were chosen "because
they're good actors."
A test of just how good they
are will come early in 1985
when the movie is distributed
by Warner Brothers to Europe
and the United States. In
Israel, meanwhile, the two
leading stars, Arnon Zadok
and Muhammed Bakri. have
already proved themselves by
jointly winning Israel's best
actor of the year prize. The
film also received the best
director, scriptwriter and
supporting actor awards.
"Beyond the Walls" is
impressive photographically
and makes a tremendous
emotional impact on the
viewer. All this is in spite of
several points where the
question of reality is com-
pletely suspended and yet
the movie works.

Milton Kurland Defines
Mitzvah Therapy' for Chaplain
The meeting room at Jewish
I Federation of Palm Beach
County was filled to over-
flowing as Milton Kurland,
MSW, presented an interesting
concept of Chaplain Aide
.work, "Mitzvah Therapy," at
the third seminar meeting of
the Jewish Federation
Chaplain Aide- Program.
Confessing that he picked up
the term "Mitzvah Therapy"
at a lecture by Sol Gordon,
Kurland described the benefits
derived by Chaplain Aides as
I they perform their good deeds
I at homes for the elderly and at
I hospitals.
Quoting from Pirke Abot,
[wisdom of the Fathers, the
[Daily Prayer Book and the
Torah, Kurland established
[the obligation of performing
I mitzvot even when we are not
I in a loving mood. "We learn
I to love those whom we help,"
Jhe said. He made the analogy
[between the palindromic
[Hebrew word "Natan" to
[give, which is the same read
[forward or backward, to make
[ihc point that when you give
[you also receive in the same
After defining the shades of
mitzvot commandment,
good deed, act of charity
and giving the Greek origin of
therapy which relates to
philanthropy love of
mankind, Kurland listed the
specifics of Mitzvah Therapy.
He asked that the Chaplain
Aides analyze their feelings as
they wheel residents around a
nursing home. He suggested
1- "You will experience
feelings of ego satisfaction
. .feel needed."
2- "By showing the Jewish
nursing home residents that
they are not forgotten that
the Jewish community cares,
the Aide is giving them
'Kavod,' honor and respect
the 'Kavod* is returned to the
Chaplain Aide in the same
3- "By performing the
"Mitzvah," the Aide is
contributing to the Divine
Plan of Creation."
4- "When the 'Mitzvah' is
performed, the Aide is setting
an example for his children,
grandchildren, and all
mankind that will lead to a
better world."
5- "We listen to the Rabbis
who say that by performing
Mitzvot we can gather the fruit
in this world and still have the
principal remain in the world
to come."
Kurland, who has spent 47
vears in social work, was
inspired by gemulet chesed
(performing kind deeds)
displayed by his grandmother
who.^pn Friday mornings, on
110th Street in New York City,
distributed Shabbat candles
and Challah to the poor. His
father's work for the Hebrew
Free Loan Society in which
young Milton was occasionally
called upon to help, was also
an inspiration. Kurland has
worked as a clinician and
instructor, having taught at
Columbia University, City
University of New York,
Hunter College, Lehman
College and Adelphi
University. He was also senior
case supervisor for New York
City Department of Social
Services and Director of Social
Services at Four Winds
Hospital in Katona, New
York. He is now adjunct
instructor in Continuing
Education at Palm Beach
Junior College and has his
own private practice. Kurland
holds degrees in social work,
education and gerontology.
Milton and his wife Ruth
are members of the Chaplain
Aide Program. They conduct
Sabbath services at Waterford
Nursing Home and Jupiter
Convalescent Center. They are
members of Temple Beth
David, located in North Palm
Beach where they reside.
Milton serves on the ritual
committee, teaches adult
education classes and is part
time Bal Koreh, reader of the

not only are they alcoholics but
they're Jewish alcoholics, a
stigma that might be keeping
thousands from seeking help. But
they've been told all their lives
that Jews don't drink. That it's a
disgrace, a shanda, for Jews to
drink too much. The stigma and
guilt have, according to the
experts, done more harm than
good to Jewish society.
Alcoholism, the third biggest
killer in the U.S., is a genetically
related disease that is curable. It
has nothing to do with social
upbringing or culture. It's a
sickness. And until more Jews
come out of their deadly closet,
chances are good they'll

their families and their careers.

Debbie, who talks as if she's been
your best friend for years. "I
used to help my husband with his
business. I'd drink a little before

why worry?

"Finishing up" meant drinking
herself into a stupor.
"The attitude out there is 'so
you drink a little bit, don't worry
about it.' "
DEBBIE WAS an active
Jewish charities volunteer even
while she drank.
Her drinking started to bottom
out after she was pulled over by a
county police officer and given a
warning. She said the next day
she went out to think over her
situation over cigarettes and
booze. She decided on her own to
stop drinking and get help.
"For any woman who goes out
for a three or four cocktail lunch
at the country club, well, she'd
better take a good look at herself.

Random Thoughts
For almost 40 years 1 have
maintained an open door
policy. In fact, it has often
been suggested that I hang out
a "Ramada Levitt" shingle.
No matter what state we have
lived in, and let me tell you
that we have moved around a
lot, relatives and friends seem
able to find us no matter
where. Even friends of friends
have beat a path to our door,
and we have entertained more
company than anyone I know.
Considering the variety of
relatives and widely diverse
cross section of people who
have shared our table, I have
become a self-appointed
authority on the different
kinds of eaters that comprise
our society.
First 1 have keenly observed
the strict dieters and con-
scientious food objectors.
They are usually extremely
cautious and careful about
what they ingest. No fats, no
starches, no sugars, and very
little else passes their lips.
Mostly they are picky-picky
eaters who leave more on the
plate than was originally
placed there. I haven't quite
figured out how they ac-
complish this feat, but
somehow they manage. I
wouldn't mind the long list of
dietary no-nos if they didn't
cast dark and malevolent
glances on those others at the
table who seem to be fressing
it up and enjoying their
dinner. Don't you hate to eat
with dieters? They make you
fell guilty about every forkful
that you lift to your mouth.
After the dieters come the
food faddists. They claim to
be healthy because they eat
only grains, beans, and
growing things. Plates are
heaped with lots of grassy
looking stuff which bears a
suspicious resemblance to my
front lawn. I apoligize, gang,
but 1 cannot wax enthusiastic
over alfalfa sprouts and soy
bean curd. It simply doesn't
turn me on. I don't knock it
. I just don't dig it.
My next category is the
bunch who insist on fish or
fowl. The fish must be un-
seasoned and broiled. Chicken
must be white meat, never
dark. So tell me please, what's
so interesting about broiled
fish or boiled chicken. I
suppose it has merit since this
is basic protein and that
certainly can't be bad. It is one
way to avoid cholesterol and
that is surely a plus factor. But
show me the piece of naked
fish that has "tarn" or the
chicken breast that is exciting.
Maybe this is goodie time for
some, and to them I wish good
luck and happy eating.
The last group are my all
time favorites. These are the
folks who really delight my
Jewish mother instincts and,
of course, they are the zottig
fressers. They don't know
from food fads and they care
less about diets. All they crave
is a great big juicy meal from
soup to nuts. These gorgeous
people devour everything but
the legs on the table, and they
eat like they are going to be
electrocuted the next day.
Their compliments make me
feel like the logical successor
to Julia Child. They merely
need to tell me that my
chopped liver is sensational,
my knaidlach are fantastic, my
brisket is incredible, and my
pie is heaven sent. And if that
isn't enough to make any cook
delirious, I don't know what
Let the northerners visit us
in winter, let the southerners
come in the fall, and let the
relatives frequent frequently.
Ramada Levitt welcomes one
and all. As long as they enjoy
my home style Jewish cooking
and make me feel like a
gourmet hostess, the big time
fressers will always be number
one on my culinary hit parade!

you'd rather

Death is inevitable But funerals are the last thing people want to
hear about We understand
However, it makes sense to plan tor the unfortunate day when a
funeral becomes necessary In fact, it's just as sensible as writing
out a will or taking out a life insurance policy Because when you
pre-plan your funeral you're relieving your loved ones from mak-

So, it makes sense to visit Gutterman-Warheit Memorial Chapel
and lind out about their Sentinel Plan It's a program where you
pre-arrange and prepay in installments for your funeral You pre
arrange to save your family the difficulty of decision making, you
pre-pay to freeze your price

Clark Expresses Canadian
Support For Israel
External Affairs Minister Joe
Clark has reaffirmed
Canadian support for Israel's
right to live within secure and
internationally recognized
borders while at the same time
indicating support for the
right of the Palestinians to a
home on the West Bank.
Clark also stressed in an
address to the annual con-
ference for members of
Parliament in Ottawa that the
Canadian government will
continue to pursue a policy of
strengthening ties with Israel
on both political and
economic grounds. The
conference was organized by
the Canada-Israel Committee.
had conferred with Israeli
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir who arrived here for a
six-day visit. He held talks
with government officials,
including Clark, although not
with Prime Minister Brian
Mulroney, who went to
Moscow to attend the funeral
of Soviet President Konstantin
In his speech, Clark noted
that Shamir and he had dif-
ferences on the various aspects
of the Middle East. But, he
said, Canadian policy sup-
ports efforts made by Israel to
implement the troop with-
drawal from Lebanon, and
"we stress again Israel's right
to secure land and the right of
the Palestinians for a home on
the West Bank."
The Canadian official
announced that the govern-
ment will soon release a
"green paper" on foreign
policy in which for the first
time, he said, Canada will
publicly stress Israel's security
and well being. He said the
paper will specifically un-
derline the international and
economic conditions between
Canada and Israel.
Clark noted that a special
economic and technological
agreement would be signed
this week between Canada and
Israel. It will grant for the first
time El Al, Israel's national
airlines, with landing rights in
Toronto. El Al had requested
this of the Canadian gover-
nment for many years, Clark
said. El Al has been flying to
Montreal for more than a

Lewis Optimistic By 'Stirrings Of |
Peace* As Post In Israel Nears End1
Samuel Lewis, ending an
eight-year term as U.S.
Ambassador to Israel, has
expressed optimism here over
the "stirrings of peace" in the
region. "The ice floes in the
Middle East are beginning to
crack," the veteran diplomat
told 360 guests attending a
farewell dinner given in his
honor by the Association of
Americans and Canadians in
Israel (AACI) at Kfar
"The rumblings (of peace)
in the distance scare some
people, but it is the harbinger
of summer," Lewis said. The
American envoy, who began
his tour of duty here in 1977,
the year of Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat's historic visit to
Jerusalem, said "the peace
process has been the high
point of my life."
Reviewing his tenure as
ambassador, he said his

Gittlesohn, Charles Cun-
ningham of Hinsdale, 111., a
former combat correspondent
of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
on Iwo Jima, told this reporter
he will never forget how the
rabbi went from foxhole to
foxhole while the murderous
battle raged. Cunningham's
voice shook with emotion as
he said: "He was a down-to-
earth genuine guy. Although
we're not of the same religion,
he was a man whom I shall
always revere and respect. His
sermon was the most moving
dedication to the dead I have
ever heard."

active retirement, is past
president of the Central
Conference of American
Rabbis, and founding
president of the Association of
Reform Zionists of America.

longer living with crazy
nationally known expert in the
field of substance abuse, heads
the substance abuse program at
the Sheppard Pratt Hospital. Dr.
Miller defines alcoholism as a
disease that is most probably
genetic. (Statistics show that
more than two-thirds of
alcoholics had alcoholic parents.)
He also calls it a disease that can
be cured through abstinence and
discipline. There is no vaccine for
alcoholism. Only mnoculations of
therapy and abstinence will cure
the alcoholic.
"We're pretty sure that
alcoholism is partly caused by
heredity." Dr. Miller said. "We
think it takes a genetic foun-
dation for alcoholism to happen.
On top of that you've got all the
stresses that everybody's got in
life If an individual is prone
because of his genetics to respond
to things through alcohol or
through drinking, he is a
potential candidate for
"If the individual is without
the genes for alcohol. I don't care
what you dump on them, they
may get into trouble, and they
may have some serious
psychological disorders, but they
won't be an alcoholic."
WHEN A person takes a drink
of liquor, beer or wine, it goes
through his system and intestinal
wall rapidly before it enters the
bloodstream and bathes virtually
even, part of the body, including
the brain. The body is able to get
rid of alcohol at the rate of an
ounce an hour. Anything more,
and you're asking for trouble.
And trouble comes when ex-
cessive alcohol depresses the
brian cells and the central ner-
vous system
"Alcohol depresses the cortex
and the higher functions of the
brain." Dr. Miller said. And
because it does that, it can cause
certain difficulties in judgement,
perception and reaction time.
"You have some people who
absolutelv hate the effect of
alcohol. Dr Miller added. "I
don't think it's because they're
such wonderful people. I think
it's because they don't have the
right biology to get into trouble.
The individual who is biologically
capable of developing alcoholism
has a different biology. And for
them, the effects of this stuff are
not unpleasant, they're pleasant.
Why? No one knows.
have a choice. He has such a
rearranged chemistry that he's
simply not able to do without it.
He con stop, but it isn't a simple
act of will or good judgement, it
takes treatment. The non-
alcoholic has a choice to do it or
not to do it. He can choose to
have a drink or not to. The
alcoholic has lost that. The booze
is in control, he isn't
Alcoholics, accordaig to Dr.
Miller, have a tremendous power
of denial. They constantly
convince themselves that they
have no drinking problems. They
call it chpnaeion or even a
nervousbnasdi.iw ii.
"I think there are some real
problems with Jews and alcohol.'
Dr. Miller added. "I'm sure that
alcoholism b a terrible stigma for
ail people. But for Jews, he
says, alcoholism is an even
p stigma. "Jews are not
sappuxd to be alcoholics. Good
Jews are not alcoholics. So if you
are, you are not only sack, you're
also a bad Jew You not only
have an fliiiai you've also
forsaken your heritage. And with
that kind of a guih load on them,
k really gets difficult to go for
is that
AA meetings take place in
churches." Dr. Miller continued.
"For some Jews that alone is
totally unacceptable. The AA
philosophy does feel like a
Christian philosophy, but it isn't.
It is really broad based."
THERE ARE at least three
avenues of recovery for the
Jewish alcoholic. These include
AA, the Jewish Alcohol and
Drug Abuse Service (JADASI.
and the Jewish Alcoholics.
Chemically Dependent Persons
and Significant Others Foun-
dations, Inc.. better known as
JACS. a national organization
based in New York.
The oldest and most famous of
all alcohol abuse programs is
Alcoholics Anonymous, a peer-
support group that has an
estimated roster of 53.000 groups
with over one million members in
110 countries, including Israel.
There are AA groups all over
the Baltimore area. There is.
however, only one in the
"Jewish" area, and that is the
Shalom chapter that meets each
Wednesday night at Har Sinai.
Many of the Jewish alcoholics
interviewed said they and others
are concerned about attending
the Shalom group because they
don't want their identities
known. It is ironic that the
majority of the Shalom group
members are not Jewish.
AA MEMBERS are united by
a common theme, and that
theme, simply stated, says that
there is a spirit bigger and more
powerful than they are. They are
asked to realize that they were
powerless when it came to
alcohol, and it is more important
to turn their problems and lives
over to the higher spirit. This
theme is prominent in the 12
steps that the alcoholics are
asked to follow.
An A A meeting begins with
the prayer. "God grant me the
serenity to accept things I cannot
change, the courage to change
things I can. and the wisdom to
know the difference
The Shalom meeting is run by
a recovering alcoholic named
Jim. He introduces himself by
saying. "I'm Jim, and I'm an
alcoholic." The other 36 or so
people in the room respond, "Hi

JACS, based in New York with
the help of that city's Board of
Rabbis, offers a more spiritual
answer to addicts and their
families. It ia a national
organization that seeks to bring
Jewish addicts and their families
together to "reconnect with
Jewish traditions and explore
resources and values within
Judaism to enhance their
"There is a need for a fesling
about being Jewish," one JACS
member said. "A lot of the time
Jewish alcoholics have the feeling
that the religion has turned away
from them. There's more of a
stigma in the Jewish community
toward alcohol than there is
toward drugs. I think it's this
stigma that is the biggest
problem. Some Jewish alcoholics
will not go to an AA meeting in
this area, because they're afraid
of who might find out. So then
you have .lews attending A A
meetings in Towson or Dundalk
(suburbs of Baltimore). It's an
insidious problem. We want
JACS to be there for the Jewish
alcoholic. We want them to know
that they're not alone."
AND INDEED, they are
hardly alone. JACS has its own
national journal. In the winter
1984 edition, there were reports
of new chapters being formed in
Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia,
Pittsburgh, and the southern
region of the country.
JACS also conducts retreats
and support programs for Jewish
alcoholics and provides com-
munity outreach programs. It is
strongly interested in the effects
of substance abuse on the Jewish

context, the Jewish alcoholic in
an AA program may take
spiritual refuge in Christianity as
do those around him.
"The problem which many
people have in placing a Jewish
content in their progress," writes
David Steinman, an Orthodox
rabbi and drug counselor in New
York, in the current JACS
newsletter, "ia that one can only
be solved by the individual in his
or her continuing study of, and
growth through, Judaism."
Similarly, Rabbi Shlomo
Porter, director of the Etz Chaim
Institute in Baltimore, notes that
while many Christians in AA
may find Jesus, "searching
Jewish alcoholics have little to
fall back on. A lot of Jews are
afraid of God or spirituality.
They just don't see Judaism as
being able to offer it."
PORTER IS strongly con-
sidering forming a study and peer
support group through his adult
education programs of Etz
"The ethical approach to
Judaism is very close to the 12
steps," Rabbi Porter said. "I
think the 12 steps, themselves,
are steps that should be followed
by non-alcoholics. But listen,
here's such an opportunity for
Jewish education, why waste it?"
Rabbi Donald Berlin of Oheb
Shalom, who is a local leader in
counseling Jewish alcoholics,
says he has no Jewish problems
with AA but he is highly
critical of the organized Jewish
12 Steps Toward Overcoming Alcoholism
1. We admit we are so powerless over alcohol that
our lives have become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a power greater than
ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives
over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory
of ourselves.
5. Admit to God, to ourselves and to another
human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. We are entirely ready to have God remove all
these defects of character.
7. Humbly ask Him to remove our shortcomings.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and
became willing to make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such people whenever
possible except when to do so would injure them
or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory, and
when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to
improve our conscious contact with God, as we
understood Him, praying only for knowledge of
His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result
of these steps, we try to carry this message to
alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all of
our affairs.
community for ignoring the
problem of Jewish alcoholics.
"I'm willing to bet," he said,
"that a number of Jews who went
to A A did convert to
Christianity. There was probably
pressure put on them because
God was talked about more there
than they experienced in their
pasts. But that has nothing to do
with AA. That's a Jewish
"We've patted ourselves on the
backs and said Jews don't drink,
for too long," Rabbi Berlin said
with anger in his voice. "We've
been afraid to approach these
people. So, what do they do?
They run off to Dundalk and look
for help. The community has
done a number on itself. And
until recently, no one knew where
to turn."
WHILE HE praised the local
JADAS program, he noted that
"Jews are drinking more and
more. We know that Jewish teen-
agers are drinking. Because of
the level of acceptance of
drinking alcohol in moderation,
those who get high on drugs
support their habits with
Rabbi Berlin did say that the
Jewish community is reaching a
point where it can deal more
effectively with the Jewish
alcoholic. He added that it was
important for the rabbi and the
alcoholic to work together to take
care of the recovering person's
Rabbi Berlin's Yom Kippur
sermon was on the rise of sub-
stance abuse in the Jewish
"These people are shamed,
alone and Jewish," Rabbi Berlin
said. "It is possible that 15 to 20
percent of all Jews are alcoholic.
And here we are feeding the poor,
helping Israel and being involved
in so many wonderful charities,
but we're not doing our best for
the Jewish alcoholic."
Or as one alcoholic who was the
president of two Jewish women's
organizations said, "Alcoholism
is a disease, not a disgrace."
A local program in Baltimore,
the Jewish Alcohol and Drug
Abuse Service (JADAS) is
currently making proposals for a
second year of operation after
receiving a one-year grant for
new and innovative services.
JADAS is operated through
the Jewish Big Brother and Big
Sister League with specific
counseling administered by social
workers Howard Resnick and
Vicki Mermelstein. JADAS
offers community education, in
service training to counselors and
social workers, actual intake,
evaluation and diagnosis and
referral and treatment.
FOR MANY Baltimore area
Jews, JADAS was the first step
on the road back to recovery. The
service not only provides
counseling but also important
educational programs. One such
progam is a skit for school-aged
children entitled "Choices,
The skit, which covers decision
making skills and the ability to
cope with peer pressure, goes
"long with the substance abuse
education offered in 10
congregations last fall.
"I think it's important for the
Jewish alcoholic to realize it's
okay to come out of the closet,"
Rnick said. "You know that
only three to five percent of
alcoholics are skid row bums. The
her 95 percent look just like
anyone else, except that they
"jay have a bottle underneath
their car seat."
"Ten percent of any American

Mubarak Concedes Talks Failed
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak, on an official visit
to Washington, appeared to
have heard more questions
than answers from President
Reagan about the Egyptian
leader's effort to push forward
a new Middle East peace
initiative with renewed U.S.
Although both Reagan and
Mubarak spoke positively
about their discussions,
neither mentioned any sub-
stantive results or new areas of
agreement on how to proceed
toward expanding the peace
IN HIS statement at the
White House, following the
meeting, Reagan alluded to
recent proposals by Mubarak
which have included a call for
direct negotiations between
Israel and a joint Palestinian-
Jordanian delegation, as well
as a subsequent suggestion to

Administration officials have
appeared leary about pursuing
Mubarak's idea of preliminary
talks, but have not discarded it
out of hand.
Calling the Egyptian
President's recent suggestions
"a positive contribution"
Reagan said, "We note
particularly your realistic
assessment that the path to
peace between Israel and its
Arab neighbors is through
direct negotiations."
Reagan stressed that "as
was affirmed in my initiative
of September 1, 1982, the
United States also believes that
the outcome of this process
must also recognize the
legitimate rights of the
Palestinian people."
REAGAN'S statement on
the Palestinians was similar to
the one made following a
meeting with the Egyptian
President during a visit to
Washington last year.
Mubarak is said to have
embarrassed the
Administration at that time,
by calling on Reagan publicly
to recognize the Palestinian
Liberation Organization and
its leader, Yasir Arafat.
No similar appeal was made
in Mubarak's departure
remarks. But Mubarak did
indicate that he had failed to
move the American President
on pursuing his suggestions.
"Destiny has chosen you to
lead this great nation at a time
when a golden opportunity for
peace is available," Mubarak

Direct Talks Needed
Or There'll Be No Peace Progress
American Jewish leaders
last week told President Hosni
Mubarak of Egypt that "no
possible progress toward
peace" could be made in the
Middle East unless Israel were
involved in direct talks with its
Arab neighbors.
Mubarak was urged "to
demonstrate to his fellow
Arab leaders the advantages of
peace with Israel by giving
genuine content to that peace
by returning his
Ambassador to Israel and by
fulfilling the commitment to
trade, tourism and cultural
exchanges contained in the
treaty between Egypt and
"Only if the Arab world
recognizes that peace with
Israel can bring political and
economic dividends will the
circle of peace grow wider,"
said Kenneth Bialkin,
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
BIALKIN LED a group of
some 20 leaders of American
Jewish organizations in an
hour-long meeting with the
Egyptian leader at the
Madison Hotel. Mubarak last
week began a three day official
visit to Washington which
included meetings with
President Reagan and other
senior Administration of-
Bialkin, addressing
reporters after the meeting,
described as "spirited and
friendly," said the Egyptian
leader repeated his com-
mitment to peace with Israel
and voiced confidence that
progress would be made in
three areas so that he could
return his Ambassador to
Israel and promote trade and
tourism with Israel.
The tree areas referred to by
Mubarak were: a complete
Israeli withdrawal from south
Lebanon; some movement on
the Palestinian problem; and a
resolution of the dispute over
Taba, the 800-square-meter
enclave south of Eilat that is
claimed by both Egypt and
Mubarak, according to
Bialkin, expressed satisfaction
at Israel's decision to with-
draw from Lebanon and
understanding that the
Palestinian issue posed great
difficulties for any Israeli
BUT BIALKIN reported
that Mubarak appeared

Jacobson Proposes
Bonier Peace
Charlotte Jacobson, president
of the Jewish National Fund
of America, called on
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak to participate in
planting a peace forest on the
Israel-Egyptian border.
Jacobson raised the idea at
the end session of the JNF
Assembly last week. She said
the project would express the
wish of the two peoples to
coexist in peace, and it would
allow Israel and Egyptian
citizens to raise their children
without the fear of wars and
hostile acts.
dispute over Taba. Mubarak
said that Egyptian public
opinion was not yet ready for
the return of its Ambassador
to Israel, withdrawn following
the massacre of Palestinians at
the Sabra and Shatila refugee
camps in September, 1982.
In turn, the Jewish leaders
urged Mubarak to "exercise
genuine leadership" by
helping to mold public opinion
in his country to understand
the advantages of normal
relations with Israel.
Mubarak insisted that the
absence of the Egyptian envoy
from Israel did not mean an
absence of contact and
dialogue with the Jewish State,
Bialkin reported. "Mubarak
expressed confidence that his
envoy to Israel would be
returned and that trade,
tourism and cultural ex-
changes would follow," said
Bialkin, adding, "He kept
telling us to 'be patient,' and
he repeated that Egypt
'respects its commitments to
Israel 100 percent,' and never
thinks of going back on the
peace treaty."
delegation that he recognized
there could be no solution to
the Arab-Israel conflict unless
both sides sat down with each
other and talked. "Mubarak
justified his proposals for a
American meeting as a way of
making a 'psychological
breaking toward peace. We
told him this idea was a non-
starter and would serve to
delay the peace process, which
could only advance when
Israel met directly with Jordan
and a non-PLO delegation of
Palestinian Arabs."
The delegation of Jewish
leaders was especially
disappointed, according to
Bialkin, by two statements by
Mubarak. "One was his
defense of (PLO chief) Yasir
Arafat as a 'moderate,' a
description we told him we
could not accept," Bialkin
"The other was his rather
offhand response to a question
we raised on what Egyptian
children read in their text-
books and learned at school
about Israel and the Jewish
people. Mr. Mubarak
dismissed the question as one
that would take care of itself
once normal relations with
Israel were restored. Our
response was that a better
understanding" of Israel and
"the people who live there was
essential to such a peace,"
Bialkin said.
