leaders of the Lebanese Jewish
community were kidnapped in
a scries of abductions carried
out by armed men in Beirut.
The kidnappings have been
confirmed by the Beirut
police, but no group has
publicly claimed responsibility
nor have family members been
contacted with ransom
According to information
obtained by the American
Jewish Committee from its
Paris office and from other
reliable sources in the U.S.,
Europe and the Middle East,
the following is known about
the kidnap victims and the
circumstances of their ab-
Dr. Elie Khallak, 59, a
prominent physician, was
kidnapped from his home in
West Beirut on Friday, April
1, by armed men in uniform.
Haim Cohen, an elderly
member of the community
whose functions include
distribution of kosher meat.
Elie Srour. 68, whose
community functions include
preparing the dead for burial.
Both were abducted near the
synagogue in the Wadi Abu
Jamil old Jewish quarter.
They are not wealthy. They
were also kidnapped during
the Sabbath. Since Srour is
Khallak's father-in-law it is
quite possible that he was
visiting Khallak and they were
kidnapped at the same time.
Isaac Sasson, the president
of the community, was kid-
napped by armed men on
Sunday. He had been out of
the country on a business trip
and was dragged away by
three armed men when he
arrived at the airport in
Moslem West Beirut. (This
information is different from
that in the Associated Press
dispatch from Beirut of March
31, which says that he was
dragged from his home in
Wadi Abu Jamil.)
Sasson, 68, is director of the
pharmaceutical department of
Khalil Fattal and Fils, a major
Lebanese trading company.
Friends sought to warn him
not to return to his home in
West Beirut but to go directly
to the relatively safer Christian
section of the city, but his
abducters, who obviously
knew of his travel plans,
intercepted him either im-
mediately as he got off the
plane or in the vicinity of the
airport. Sasson suffers from
Khallak and Sasson are well
connected in Lebanese society.
Khallak's patients include
prominent members of the
various ethnic and religious
communities. He has
scrupulously stayed out of
politics, and, in fact, the son
of one of the Palestine
Liberation Organization's
leaders was treated by him.
Sasson also has contacts
among Moslim as well as
Christian business circles.
The two led a Jewish
delegation that met with
President Amin Gemayel on
August 23 last year to discuss
the deteriorating situation of
the dwindling Jewish com-
munity, which is now
estimated at less than 100.
The Lebanese authorities
and friends of Sasson and
Kahllak inquired about their
whereabouts with the various
armed militias, including the
Amal, the main Shiite militia
organization, but no trace of
them was discovered.
This has led to speculation
that the four Jewish men were
abducted by persons con-
nected with the Shiite fun-
damentalist group, Hezballah
(the Party of God). This group
is closely aligned with the

New Cantor At
Temple B'nai Jacob
Julius Levine, president of
Temple B'nai Jacob of Palm
Springs, has announced the
engagement of Hyman Lifshin
as the new cantor of the
congregation. He has chanted
the liturgy in prominent
congregations in New York,
Brooklyn and Long Island.
For the past nine years he was
affiliated with the Israelite
Center Temple in Miami, prior
to which he served at the
Suburban Park Jewish Center,
East Meadow, New York for
12 years.
According to Levine,
Cantor Lifshin is renowned
for his fine lyric tenor voice.
"Cantor Lifshin has ^ fine
portfolio of renditions of the
liturgy, and a wide range of
traditional melodies. Even as a
child," Levine continued, "his
cantorial talent manifested
itself, and his entire adult life
has been devoted to being an
illustrious 'Sheliach Tzibur.'
His liturgical repertoire in-
cludes thrilling melodies
absorbed from the late, world-
famous Cantor Yossele
Rosenblatt. Cantor Lifshin
was a member of the Meyer
Posner Choir which sang in
conjunction with Cantor
Rosenblatt. It is anticipated
that the 'singing congregation'
of Temple B'nai Jacob will be
enriched by the talents of
Cantor Hyman Lifshin."

Behind the Headlines
The Other Face of Israel
Israel's economy is an equal
opportunity victimizer. All
segments of the population
workers and businessmen,
moshavim and kibbutzim, and
the young and the old,
especially those living on
pensions and fixed incomes
are adversely affected.
People are bewildered not
only by the devaluation of the
Shekel but by its daily
fluctuation. In a period of two
weeks this month, the Shekel
went from 771 to the dollar to
792. No one knows from one
day to the next what the
prices of commodities will be
except that it will in all
probability be higher.
Every morning and every
afternoon people line up in
front of banks to get the latest
Shekel readings. It's un-
nerving for Israeli consumers
but a paradise for tourists.
Merchants and tourists are
both armed with pocket
calculators to translate prices
of goods into the tourists'
home currency. Many shops
and hotels will offer a 10
percent discount and
elimination of the 15 percent
value added tax if the con-
sumer pays in foreign
Dollars are being hoarded
by Israelis and kept in safe
places in the home or in bank
safe deposit boxes. A case in
point: some safe deposit boxes
were recently broken into in a
Jerusalem bank and the
owners declined to come
forward to identify the
contents. The assumption was
that the boxes contained
undeclared dollars.
To cushion the debilitating
effect of the Shekel
devaluation and fluctuation,
Israelis have developed bleak
jokes. One is: Israel no longer
needs the law of gravity. It's
been replaced by the law of the
Shekel. Everything falls
within its vicinity. Another
joke: If the shaky position of
the Shekel continues, it is
going to be renamed the
Shokel. And, a variation of an
oldie but a goodie: In
America, money talks. In
Israel, all the Shekel says is
The economic "balagan"
(total chaos) has been at-
tributed to the peace with
Egypt, which cost Israel at
least $5 billion, not including
the oil lost in the Sinai; the
war in Lebanon at an
estimated cost of $3.5 billion;
defense outlays; repayment of
foreign debts, and a general
mismanagement of the
economy over a period of
Israelis tend to react to
these explanations very much
like the poor Jews in the shtetl
who had become accustomed
to receive a weekly stipend of
five groshen from a wealthy
local Jew. One week the
stipend was reduced to two
groshen. "Why?" asked the
poor Jew. "Because I had a
bad week," the wealthy one
responded. "You had a bad
week, so I have to suffer," the
poor Jew complained.
But jokes aside, the
economy with unbridled
inflation at 800 percent and
seven percent unemployment
at this time next to the war
in Lebanon, is an explosive
issue for the government. In
fact, when Premier Shimon
Peres and Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin addressed
meetings of the United Jewish
Appeal Ambassadors'
Mission they stressed this is
the most crucial task Israel
has to deal with.
In February, for example,
the consumer price index rose
by 13.5 percent. It was the
first double-digit inflation
figure since November. Retail
prices in January had climbed
by 5.3 percent. The Histadrut
is seeking a cost of living
increment of about 14 percent.
But by the time this in-
crement is implemented, some
10 percent of it will have been
One segment of the
population most seriously
affected by the economic
turmoil are the old who live on
fixed incomes and pensions.
For these people, writes
D'vora Ben Shaul in The
Jerusalem Post, "Life is a
never-ending struggle for
survival. The hand-to-mouth
existence forced upon this
sector of the economy
deprives its members not only
of peace of mind but even of
the basic essentials of proper
diet as well as adequate heat
in the winter months For
many of these pensioners the
dream of the golden years has
turned into a nightmare of
Some 300,000 people receive
old-age pensions from the
National Insurance Institute.
Half of them are living below
the Institute's official poverty
line. While about half of those
receiving old-age benefits
from the Institute have of-
ficial supplementary incomes
in the form of jobs, private
pension funds from their
former jobs or taxable
dividends, "the other half eke

Ben Shaul writes.
In several neighborhoods in
Jerusalem, some of the old
people gather quietly on the
eve of the Sabbath to receive
some meat, fish, fruits and
vegetables from the managers
of the supermarkets. Their
dignity doesn't permit them
to ask for food; they stand by
inconspicuously and wait for
the managers to motion to
them to pick out what they
Unemployment is on the
rise. Employment in in-
dustries oriented toward the
domestic market has come to
a near stand-still. There are
some jobs available in
research and development and
in ex port-oriented industries.
Gad Yaacobi, minister of
economics and planning, said
recently that this trend is
expected to continue. "I have
little faith that work openings
will be created soon in any
great number in any other
sector than ex port-oriented
industries," he stated.
Earlier this month Labor
Minister Moshe Katsav
complained bitterly about the
jobless situation. "Not only is
the commitment the gover-
nment undertook for full
employment not being carried
out, but no body has even
been formed to create em-
ployment or to prevent
unemployment," he wrote in a
letter to Premier Shimon
Coping with unemployment
is exhausting and frustrating.
But some jobless find
ingenious and inventive ways
to deal with the situation. In
Jerusalem, two women have
founded the Jerusalem
Bartering Club where
members can swap their
unwanted possessions for
goods and services they would
otherwise have to buy.
According to the co-
founders of the club, Rhoda
Elovitz and Theresa Terry,
"In the beginning, before
Shekels, there was bartering.
Early man traded furs for
weapons and food. We feel the
Israeli economy has come full
circle and it's time again to
reinstitute this primitive, yet
efficient, system." The club,
they point out, was founded as
a mutual support group to
help those struggling to make
ends meet.
Merchants are also affected
by the gyrations of the
economy. While many of them
are enjoying brisk business as
consumers, on a spending
spree, are buying household
and luxury items now as a
hedge against price hikes later,
they are also being hit by
spiralling municipal property
In Haifa, for example,
private businesses, factories
and shops staged a one-day
close-down protest against
increases in municipal
property taxes. A week earlier,
the City Council approved rate
increases of 600 to 900 percent
above last April's assessments.
Haifa's Chamber of
Commerce Secretary Arieh
Mehoulal charged that the
increases, slated to take effect
next month, would make the
city a more expensive place to
live and to run a commercial
enterprise than Jerusalem or

businesses would be paying
more in municipal property
taxes next month than in sales
and other taxes.
The moshavim, which have
been suffering economic
hardships for some years, are
facing more problems.
Hundreds of Galilee
moshavim members blocked
the road between Safad and
Moshav Meron and dumped
thousands of eggs on the high-
way on March 10. Police used
force to break up the
demonstration which moshav
movement leaders said was
part of a campaign to force the
government to give aid to
needy settlements.
The protestors, including
hundreds of moshav children,
chanted slogans, including,
"Bread and work" and "The
Katyushas have not made us
leave the northern border, but
the subsidies will." According
to Rahamim Yakuti, secretary
of the Galilee moshavim,
changes in recent years in the
poultry industry, with the
emphasis turning from raising
chickens for meat to raising
them as egg producers, has
caused serious financial
problems for the farmers.
There is now a surplus of 40
million eggs and there is no
way moshav farmers could
raise prices, he said. Subsidy
money has not been forwarded
to the producers for four
months and some 25
moshavim are now in the red
by a total of $10 million, he
added. Other demonstrations
are being planned "\

who had been part of the

The day after the wedding
there were reports in the
newspapers about thousands

traditional Purim parade.
They couldn't find it because
it was cancelled as a budget-

The Kidnapping
Continued from Pagel
followers of Ayatollah
Khomeini of Iran and has been
implicated in attacks upon
Americans and other Western
installations in Lebanon.
Later, rumors were cir-
culating that a fifth member of
the Jewish community,
Clement Dana, 80, had also
been taken captive.
This well organized wave of
kidnappings has filled the
Jewish community with fear
and has raised deep concern
among Jewish communities
around the world. It is to be
noted that even during the
height of the civil war, which
broke out in 1975 and has
continued intermittently ever
since, the Jewish community
as such was not targeted'.'
Most of the Jewish com-
munity has left because of the
uncertain economic situation
and the physical danger of
living in a war zone. There are
no special restrictions upon
the community, which has
been free to practice its
religion and was protected by
the authorities to the extent
that there was any functioning
central authority.
In June 1967 some 6,000
Jews still lived in Lebanon,
but because of the
psychological, political and
economic pressures generated
by the Six Day war in the
neighboring countries, the
Lebanese Jewish community
shrank to half by the end of
the year. Additional
emigration occurred during
subsequent periods of turmoil.
By 1981 the community had
declined to about 200 and it is
believed that the community
today is only a fraction of that
number, with some estimates
as low as several dozen. In
many cases most family
members have established
residence abroad and only the
breadwinner remains in
Lebanon to continue his
business or profession.
The first prominent-
Lebanese Jewish leader to be'
kidnapped was Albert Elia,
the secretary-general of the]
community, who was dragged |
into a car as he was w'alkihgto
his office in the synagogue on
September 6, 1971. Sub-
sequent investigations
disclosed that the kidnappers
had been working for Syrian
intelligence. Elia died after
having been tortured in theal-
Mazeh prison outside of
But there were no cases of
Lebanese Jews being kid-
napped by Lebanese elements
until last year. On July 1,
Raoul Sobhi Mizrahi, 54, an
electrical engineer who ran an
electrical supply company,
was kidnapped by three armed
gunmen from his apartment in
West Beirut. There were no
ransom demands. He was
beaten to death and his body
was discovered on July 3.
A group calling itself the
"National Resistance Army-
The Nation's Liberation
Faction" said it had killed.
Mizrahi "because he was an
Israeli agent." His family
firmly denied this, but noted
that the Amal Shiite militia
had warned Mizrahi that his
life was in danger if he
maintained commercial ties |
with Israel.
On August 15, three armed
gunmen kidnapped Sahrn
Jammous, who had t>"
secretary-general of the Jewisn
community, from his car near
the main Beirut synagogue in
the Wadi Abu Jamil quartet-
No group claimed respon-
sibility and it is possible tn
he is still being kept captive-
The AJC has been in contw
with the U.S. government an
other diplomatic and human
rights channels in efforts w
locate and obtain the reiea
of the kidnapped Lebanese
Jewish leaders.

nursing home residents who
are so emotionally or mentally
impaired that they appear to
be "living in another world,'
suddenly come to to the 'here

sometimes succeeds when
traditional medicines have
failed especially for Jews
living in non-Jewish in-

be observed daily making the
rounds from room to room,
seeking out Jewish patients,
offering an encouraging word,
helping with a prayer when
requested, and referring
special problems to Rabbi
Sherman if the patient is
unaffiliated with a synagogue
or temple. Hospital personnel
attest to the efficacy of their
work, improvement of minds,
and quicker healing.

Jews, Christians Held 'Freedom Seder
For Soviet Jews* Outside Soviet Consulate
An estimated 100 Jews and
Christians gathered last week
outside the Soviet Consulate
here to hold a "Freedom Seder
for Soviet Jews," according to
the Bay Area Council for
Soviet Jews.
The noon, hour-long
demonstration, which cen-
tered around a fully-set
Passover table, was organized
to draw parallels between the
suffering of Jews in ancient
Egypt and the present suf-
fering by Jews in the Soviet
Union, said Lillian Foreman,
president of the Bay Area
Chairs around the table,
which was placed across the
street from the Soviet Con-
sulate, were left empty.
Enlarged photographs of
Soviet Jewish Prisoners of
Conscience were set in a row
down the center of the table.
Foreman said, "Jews in the
Soviet Union cannot celebrate
Passover, so we are doing it
for them."
Demonstrators sang
Passover songs, listened to
talks by rabbis and Christian
leaders and heard messages of
support from Mayor Dianne
Feinstein and many California
Congressmen. Before
dispersing, three rabbis left a
seder plate and three boxes of
matzohs on the Soviet
Consulate doorstep.

Ketubah Designed
For Temple Israel
I n honor of t he ordinat ion of
their son, Jeffrey Perry Marx,
from the Hebrew Union
College in 1983 as a Reform
Rabbi, Bob and Anne Marx
have donated to Temple Israel
a new Ketubah which was
designed and created by Betsy
Platkin Teutsch in con-
sultation with Rabbi Howard
A Ketubah is a marriage
contract which is signed by
both bride and groom and
read at their wedding. The
Ketubah originated as a legal
form following the destruction
of the Temple. The text, which
was originally written in
Aramaic was set by the year
200 BCE, and was meant to
protect the rights of a woman
in marriage. The contract
specified the groom's financial
obligations, including a
minimum inheritance and a
minimum divorce settlement.
This original format is still
used in Orthodox and many
Conservative wedding
The Reform movement has
rediscovered the Ketubah
both as an art form and as a
meaningful concept in the last
few decades. The Reform
Ketubah is equalized (both
bride and groom make the
same commitments to one
another). The Reform
Ketubah is sensitive to the
spiritual and psychological

components of the marriage
contract every couple makes
whether they verbalize them
or not, whether they sign a
Ketubah or not. The Ketubah.
which couples who marry at
Temple Israel will sign, is
Reform in spirit and context.
In ancient times, Ketubo
were a major Jewish art form.
They were beautifully lettered
and decorated, often reflecting
the time period and country of
origin of the artist. Betsy
Platkin Teutsch is ah ac-
complished Jewish
calligrapher and artist
residing in New York. The
Ketubah which she designed
for Temple Israel is in the
shape of a wedding ring, with
Jerusalem at top and the
symbols of a Jewish marriage
surrounding the text. It is
multi-colored in browns,
pinks, purples, green and
"The Temple is indebted to
the Marxes for their
generosity and patience in
seeing this project through. It
was at times complicated,
always challenging, definitely
unique and worthy," declared
Rabbi Shapiro. The Ketubah
will be dedicated during the
Sisterhood Shabbai Service
on Friday night, April 19.
