Over 500 Attend
Jewish Women's Assembly

..J women recently attended the 4th An-
jJewish Women's Assembly, sponsored by
the Women's Division of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County at the Hyatt Palm Beaches.
Assistant News Coordinator
Women have a responsibility
to educate themselves about Is-
rael, to make their voices heard,
and to insure positive United
States policy towards Israel. This
was the clear message delivered
at the Jewish Women's Assem-
bly on Nov. 3 at the Hyatt Palm
Beaches. Women's Division of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County sponsored the
Fourth Annual Assembly with
over 500 women in attendance. In
her welcoming remarks, Julie
Cummings, Women's Division
Education vice president,
stressed that "to improve the
world we must be educated and
aware and Women's Division is

Israel's First Jet Lab
Opening at Technion
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Tark-Recu Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, the first of its kind in Israel, has
been opened at the Haifa Technion. It will be used for
research and the training of Israeli scientists and
engineers and to increase the self-sufficiency of Israel
Aircraft Industries.
RESEARCH WILL be continued on several current
projects in coordination with American firms such as the
developments of dust separators for gas turbine propelled
helicopters and the production of expendable jet engines
for pilotless drone aircraft.
The new lab is named in memory of the late L. Shirley

In her plenary address,
Marillyn Tallman, noted adult
educator, implored the women to
continue the "chain of tradition
of Jewish women." She fas-
cinated them with lively excerpts
from the lives of Jewish women
throughout the ages who served
as models of courage and com-
mitment. "Will we be models for
our daughters in the future?,"
she challenged. Jewish women
must turn toward their fellow
Jews in their community and
throughout the world and say,
"We he ir you we are coming."
Dr. Seymour Liebman, his-
torian, university lecturer and
author, spoke candidly about
current Israeli issues. According
to Dr. Liebman, the greatest
challenges facing Israel today are
the PLO, Arab nationalism, and
the question of theocracy versus
democracy. He reminded the
women that as Jews they have
the responsibility to learn about
and understand the devisive is-
sues that are occurring in Israel
today. "People who are com-
mitted to a unified Jewry must be
educated about all sides of an is-
sue so that they can be moved to
positive action based on knowl-
edge and not on emotional factors
alone," he said.
"The truth became the first
casuality in the war with Leba-
non," stated Barbara Shulman,
one of the workshop leaders. She
said that "newspapers write copy
that sells," informing the women
about the role the media played
in America's perception of Israel.
According to Shulman, inflated
numbers of Palestinian casual-
ties were reported as truth but, in
fact, were outright fabrications
gathered exclusively from PLO
sources. "The actual number of
casualties, Israel's reasons for
being in Lebanon, and the true
facts about the invasion were dis-
torted and ignored," said Shul-
man. Barbara Shulman is a mem-
ber of Women's Division's Na-
tional Board and was the 1962

The atrocities are much more
poignant when one visits the site
of human destruction and cruel-
ty. Although Therisienstadt was
a "way station" for Auschwitz
and other extermination camps,
the death tolls were in the tens of
thousands. Famine, sickness,
rampant diseases, were only a
few causes for the demise of a
minority. Seventy Jews in one

Temple Beth David Youth to 'Twin' B'nai Mitzvot
Each year, the Soviet Union
shuts the doors of more
synagogues. Inside the open
ones, government informers spy
on the worshippers. The result is
that Jews live in fear of express-
ing their Jewish identity openly.
Most young people in the Soviet
Union are growing up ignorant
of Jewish life.
To focus attention on this
problem and to provide a
symbolic gesture of unity, Tem-
ple Beth David of Northern Palm
Beach County will become the
first temple in this community to
participate in twinning, the joint
observance of B'nai Mitzvot
between Jewish youngsters and
their Soviet Jewish counterparts.
On Nov. 27, Jeffrey Schimelman
will become a Bar Mitzvah and
symbolically join with his twin,
Kiril Umansky, of Leningrad.
Andrea Lebenson will share her
Bat Mitzvah with Marina Levin,
also of Leningrad, on Dec. 18.
Rabbi William Marder,
spiritual leader of Temple Beth
David, has encouraged his Bar-
Bat Mitzvah students to identify
with the problems of their Soviet
Jewish twins. "American Jewish
children of Bar Mitzvah age are
'me' oriented. Twinning will help

BONN West Germany's re-
lations with Israel appear to have
improved significantly in the five
weeks that the new coalition
government of Chancellor Hel-
mut Kohl has been in office. Is-
rael's Ambassador to Bonn, Yitz-
hak Ben Ari, said on a State
Radio interview that a large-scale
political and diplomatic dialogue
is under way between the two
At the same time, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency learned that
preparations are being made to
sign a 140 million Mark loan for
develpoment projects in Israel
despite recent calls by some West
German politicians to suspend
aid to Israel because of its actions
in Lebanon.
Ben Ari, who is presently in
Jerusalem for consultations after
a meeting with Kohl here recent-
ly, said he was confident the
dialogue now in process wil result
in benefits for both countries. His
talk with Kohl covered the Arab-
Israeli conflict and German-Is-
rael bilateral relations.
The envoy thanked the Bonn
government for its support of Is-
rael in the United Nations
General Assembly and other UN
agencies against recent attempts
to oust or suspend Israel.

Jewish identity and become
aware of people by bring-
ing them out of themselves
and focusing on the life and
problems of their Jewish peers
elsewhere, particularly in the
Soviet Union." Furthermore,
Rabbi Marder contends that
"when we try to teach Jewish
history including the Holocaust,
the magnitude is so large that
hildren need a more personal
avenue to understanding. Twinn-
ing provides a one on one ap-
proach to this aspect of Jewish
history today."
The Soviet Jewry Task Force
of the Community Relations
Council of the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County, who
sponsors this project, suggests
several methods to implement
and enhance twinning in the
synagogue. These activities
include corresponding with the
Jeffrey Schimelman
twin prior to and after the actual
occasion, mentioning the twin in
the invitation, leaving an empty
aisle in the synagogue for the
twin's family, placing a tallit and
kipah on the bimah for the twin,
calling the twin to the Torah, an-
nouncing that the twin is partici-
pating by proxy in this shared
ceremony, sending the twin a
tape of the Bar-Bat Mitzvah and
attempting them.
"Jeffrey and Andrea are to be
commended for their participa-
tion in the initial twinning
project in our community and for
their efforts in bringing attention
to the plight of their Soviet Jew-
ish brethren," stated Shirlee
Blonder, chairman of the Soviet
Jewry Task Force. For further

Sherman, Community, Relations
Council Director, at 832-2120.

but it is equally important to put
pressure on Congress as it pro-
vides the bulk of sustenance for
Israel," Bloom concluded.
The keynote speaker, Gloria
Schaffer, former Secretary of
State and State Senator of Con-
necticut, said that when women
are in disagreement with Israeli
policy, they are afraid to pose
questions, not wanting to seem
disloyal. But women can applaud
the disagreements within Israel
by realizing that "debate within
the ranks will strengthen us," she
assured those present. "The com-
mitment to keep Israel alive is for
eternity and won't waiver."
According to Regina Parness
of Tikvah Hadassah, one of the
500 women present at the Fourth
Annual Women's Assembly, the
forum was very informative. "I
thought that the speakers and
the discussions that followed
were very helpful because I will
be able to bring back current
knowledge to my Hadassah
chapter. I appreciate this oppor-
tunity to learn about issues af-
fecting Jewish women today."

Aliza Begin's Passing
Under any circumstances, the death of a wife of
nearly half a century is a profoundly sad occurrence.
In the case of Aliza Begin, the implications of her
passing go beyond her marriage relationship to a
Prime Minister of Israel.
Surely, Mr. Begin will suffer inordinate sorrow
complicated by feelings of guilt that he was not at his
beloved Aliza's side when she died last weekend. He
had gone on a ten-day tour of the United States
spurred by her assurance that she was all right, that
the tour was of supreme importance, and that she
would await his return.
And yet, when aides came to Mr. Begin's suite
in a Los Angeles hotel to announce the sad event, he
said simply, "I know. She is dead." To what extent
this sense of guilt will help the Prime Minister
through his bereavement is yet to be determined.
But in the background lie complicated matters:
the ongoing commission of inquiry into the Sabra
and Shatila massacre; the tragic occurrence in Tyre,
where near 90 Israelis lost their lives in the explosion
that brought Israeli military command headquarters
in southern Lebanon to the ground; the worsening
relationships with Egypt; and U.S. President
Reagan's determination to see a freeze on Israeli
settlements on the West Bank.
To this must be added Mr. Begin's clear
awareness that the United States, his country's only
ally, is now grimly determined to squeeze Israel back
into its pre-1967 borders. Let alone the fact that his
"Operation for Peace" in Lebanon has, from a public
relations point of view, boomeranged disastrously to
portray Israel as the mindless invader of an other-
wise "peace-prone" Arab nation.
There can be little doubt that Aliza Begin, a
severe asthmatic, did not react well to the scorn and
contumely heaped upon her husband as Prime
Minister, and that her health may have been sorely
compromised by this. Add to it his sense of guilt
that, fearing the worst, he had nevertheless left her
side so that his wife died without his presence, and it
is not possible to say just what Mr. Begin will do in
the months ahead.
Grief is a strange thing, and despite current
assurances to the contrary, the world Jewish com-
munity should not be surprised if the Prime Minister
packs it all in.
The Middle East:
A View From Washington
Here in the United States, the
situation has been unusually
shaky. There has been some divi-
sion in the Jewish community.
The Administration has proven
less supportive than we had come
to expect from the 1980 cam-
paign. And reports from Leba-
non, however inaccurate, have
taken their toll on the American
There has been a sizeable
negative reaction; you've seen it
in the media,-I've seen it in my
mail. In several places, anti-
Semitism has raised its ugly head
I sense, though, that the-
majority of Americans are still
basically supportive of Israel, re-
gardless of recent events. When
you get down to it, the same
general principles apply as al-
ways Israel is our only reliable
ally in the Middle East; its citi-
I zens share our democratic values,
our pioneering spirit, and our
Judeo-Christian heritage; we also
share important geo-strategic in-
terests. With all the ups and
downs, I 'm still confident that we
will remain the best of friends.
For years now, Lebanon has
been torn by civil war, bickering
internal factions, foreign troops,
and the PLO. It seems we seldom
see good news there without a
tragedy following at its heels.
Recently, though, the situation
has quieted down a bit. Israel has
pulled its troops out of Beirut, to
be replaced by Lebanese civilian
and military authorities. In the
meantime, peacekeeping forces
from Italy, France, and the
United States have had a
stabilizing effect.
Things appear to be looking up
again, as they were before the
brutal murder of Lebanon's
President-elect Bashir Gemayel.
Life there is as close to normal as
can be expected under the cir-
cumstances. Israel's northern
settlements are free from the
threat of a PLO terrorist and
military presence across the
border. At the very least, the
guerilla group has had the wind
knocked out of it. The leaders of
Lebanon's many factions seem to
be leaning toward moderation,
Senator Law ton Chiles
and newly elected President
Amin Gemayel, is trying to pull
things together. Hopefully, we'll
be able to get back on the road to
negotiating the withdrawal of
PLO, Syrian, and Israeli troops
from Lebanese soil. That alone
would do a lot to help stabilize
the central government in Beirut.
The problems in Lebanon are
far from being solved, though.
The chances of quickly conclud-
ing a peace treaty with Israel are
less under the new president than
they were under his brother. And
the tensions in Lebanon are deep-
rooted and strong. Amin
Gemayel does show promise
toward being able to draw the
different factions together. If he
can also maintain a cooperative
attitude toward Israel, we may be
back on track.
A lot of people, both friends
and foes of Israel, have been con-
cerned about the impact of the
events in Lebanon on civilians
there. As conscientious people,
Israel's citizens and its sup-
porters here are doing a good deal
of soul-searching these days. Of
course, we all realize that the
PLO hid behind innocent men,
women, and children in Lebanon.
In contrast, the Israelis took
care to try to minimize civilian
casualties. But it's obvious by
now that some tragic mistakes
were made. I'm glad to see that
the Begin government has re-
sponded to the popular call for an
independent investigation of the
massacre in the Sabra and
Shatila refugee camps. It's a
clear sign of democracy at work

The 1982 tax law bears the
awesome title "Tax Equity and
Federal Responsibility Act" and
carries the acronym "TEFRA."
One of its controversial
provisions is a withholding tax
on interest and dividends. This
does not create a new tax on such
items, but is meant to close the
compliance gap by inducing tax-
payers to report interest and
dividends, so that they may take
credit for the tax withheld. In
order to ease the burden on low
income individuals and senior
citizens, the act provides for
certain exemptions which are
described herein.
As of July 1,1983, a 10 percent
withholding tax is levied on
taxable interest and dividends
paid to individuals, partnerships,
estates and trusts. Exemptions
from withholding may be claimed
as follows:
Under the age of
Age 65 and over-
Only one spouse

There Are Jews In All My Songs
At 10 o'clock on a Thursday
morning, an ordinary workday, I
enter a factory. Within half an
hour, I feel as if I am in a syna-
gogue. Because of the singing.
Because of the loud, brave, sad
songs of Jewish men and women
who carry our collective history
in their voices.
Picture this room, a large, bare
open floor. More than 150
physically, emotionally or men-
tally handicapped people are
seated at work tables. Six to a
table. Four. One. All ages. In all
conditions. One thing in com-
mon: they need help.
Like them, another 6,300 Jews
are cared for throughout Israel in
Hameshaken sheltered work-
shops for rehabilitation of the
handicapped. It costs $14.8 mil-
lion annually for basic main-
tenance of these programs, in-
cluding $5.5 million in subsidies
from the Jewish Agency. These
funds do not cover the cost of
new construction, purchase of
new machinery or training of spe-
cially qualified technical staff.
The people I see before me are
all busy. But with what?
By hand, they are making file
folders. Sold to the Government
of Israel, to the Ministry of De-
fense. Two hundred thousand a
month, month in and month out.
Not a very dazzling occupation
but useful.
I begin to walk past the work
tables. A woman smiles, inviting
me into her life.
Who is this woman?
"Sara," she tells me. An immi-
grant from Russia. Her hair is
dark, her eyes spark when she
tells me that for 15 years she was
a singer on Russian television.
She does not mention the blue
numbers on her arm, from a con-
centration camp. The other de-
tails spill out one after the other.
In her 40's. Divorced. Three chil-
dren. A daughter in school. Two
sons in combat in Operation
Peace for the Galilee.
And she, Sara. Why is she here
in this sheltered workshop,
Hameshakem? High blood pres-
sure. A heart condition. Battered
nerves. She lacks the physical
stamina to put in an eight-hour
day, five and a half days a week
in the competitive, open market-
Here, she works from 7:30 in the
morning till 1 in the afternoon,
with half an hour break for tea.
She receives National Insurance,
a pension, medical insurance and
a salary of about 80 cents an
hour. Subsidized, all of it.
Why does she not sing on Is-
raeli television?
There is no place for her .
not on the one and only channel
Israel has.
Well, then, will she sing for me

a iiJ let me record her voice on my
tape recorder?
Yes, Sara will sing. In Russian.
Bucharin. Georgian. Uzbeki.
But where, in a sheltered work-
shop, without disrupting the
work of 150 others?
In Jerusalem, anything is pos-
sible. We walk out behind
Hameshakem, to stand in a
stoney little alleyway between
two buildings.
"There are Jews in all my
songs," Sara says. And in her
songs, I hear a parade of them
pass by, from 2,000 years ago,
from today, crossing the snows of
Russia, the severe mountains of
Turkey. Walking to Israel. I hear
Jews, singing. Surviving.
When we return to the work-
shop, Sara asks that I play my
tape back for her. Mr. Pesler, Is-
rael Director General of Hame-
shakem, and Mr. Veeder, Jeru-
salm Regional Director, join us
and indulge this request.
Sara's song fills the room. Like
a magnet, her music pulls others
to her table. They are from many
countries, some wearing the
flowered summer dresses or
striped pajama-like trousers and
shirts of Arab lands from which
thev came, some in the heavy
wool pants, sweaters and peaked
workmen's caps of Eastern
There is a spontaneous out-
pouring of joy. Two dozen men
and women come to sing with
Sara, to dance and sway and snap
their fingers, even to send out the
highundulatingwail of the North
African and Far Eastern Jews.
Their smiles are so real, their
mouths so brilliantly proud with
gold teeth that I forget where I
am, in a room where every person
is hurting.
Unexpectedly, from behind,
man taps me on the shoulder. A
short man, about 60, wanting
something very badly.
"Please," he says, "I want to
sing the Kol Nidre for you."
In Jerusalem, anything is pos-
sible. Even this most somber,
this holiest of holy songs can be
sung in the middle of a sheltered
workshop where the work of the
day is making file folders.
Aryeh and I retreat to a
storage room. There are grey
metal shelves ranked along the
walls, boxes stored all along their
length and height. We stand in
an aisle, facing each other. Aryeh
plants his feet firmly on the bare
floor. He strikes a proud stance
that makes him taller.
"I was a cantor," he tells me.

Maxwell House* Coffee
Is After Shopping Relaxation.
Shopping for a "good buy" has be-
come one of America's favorite pas-
times. Its always fun to find new
things, see the new fashions and
perhaps pick up something new for
the house or family.
Another favorite pastime is to come
home from shopping, kick ofT the
shoes and relax with a good cup of
coffee. Maxwell House* Coffee. The
full-pleasant aroma and great-
tasting, satisfying flavor is
the perfect ending

a Prague Congregation of ap-
proximately 70 people. The most
touching aspect of the evening at
shul was watching the eleven
children walking with their
Chinese lanterns because they
weren't allowed to carry the Is-
raeli flag. Israel is not recognized
by Czechoslovakia. And
where Simchat Torah is usually
at home, a very happy ceremony,
this was a very mundane and
subdued one. The children fol-
lowed the Torahs being carried
by town men, approximately six
of them, up the center aisle and
around the Bimma seven times.
After services our group sang Is-
raeli songs joined in by the
townsfolk after two or three
choruses and danced and brought
a new glimmer of hope to these
oppressed people. After, a few
members of our group started
talking to these people in German
and Yiddish about life and their
heritage. There is a vast distinc-
tion between heritage and life in
this case. One woman remarked,
"there is no life." Another wom-
an who had no family, no hus-
band, no children, no one to join
in on the happy moments, if there
are any, remarked that "life is
Hell." We touched these people,
if for a brief moment, to give
them hope for other Jews around
the world. These people have suf-
fered and will continue to do so
until liberated from this oppres-
sion. One woman remarked that
it was the beet Simchat Torah
service they have had since the
war. Their faith is stronger than
ever. They are hardened by state
control and want desperately to
live in a free environment. But
they can't get out.
We left Prague with a tear in
our eye and a determination to
spread the word of their plight. I
would urge any of our readers to
join one of the next three mis-
sions to this Iron Curtain city.
While you are there, understand
your fortunes and reach out to
bring a glimmer of hope to this
suppressed society. After all,
wouldn't it be unfortunate to live
your entire life in a bubble with-
out touching your brothers and

Local Delegates to attend
Women's American ORT Nation-
al Board Conference in New York
The 14th National Board Con-
ference of Women's American
ORT will meet in New York City,
Nov. 28 to Dec. 1. Delegates from
the North Palm Beach County
Region will join 800 of their col-
leagues, representing 145,000
members of Women's American
Organization for Rehabilitation
through Training, to gather and
develop the means for expanding
the global ORT program.
Local delegates who will par-
ticipate in the conference are:
Caroline Ring, President; North
Palm Beach County Region;
Helen Bilawsky, Executive Com-
mittee Chairman; Sylvia Gayl,
Vice President of Education;
Blanche Silverman, VP Jewish
Community Relations; Esther
Sugarman, VP Membership. The
delegates are all National Board
In the light of recent events
around the world, it is more es-
sential than ever to expand ORT
facilities and programs, to
combat anti-Semitism, and to
cope more effectively with the
pressing problems in American
education and society.
ORT, the vocational and tech-
nical education program of the
Jewish people, has been in opera-
tion since 1880. Over two million
people have been trained by ORT
since its inception. Today, the in-
ternational ORT network is
comprised of some 800 vocational
and technical schools located in
two dozen countries on five con-
tinents, with an annual enroll-
ment in excess of 100,000. The
Bramson ORT Technical Insti-
tute in New York City and ORT's
recent entry into the Jewish Day
School movement in Florida are
bringing ORT's expertise to the
American scene. Women's Amer-
ican ORT, founded in 1927, is the
largest of the membership orga-
nizations in 40 nations which
support the global ORT program.
The 14th National Board Con-
ference was originally scheduled
to be held in Paris, however, the
escalating terrorism in Europe
posed a security problem and
compelled us to change the site of
the Conference to the United
States. The original purpose for
going to France was to afford our
leadership an in-depth, real-life
view of ORT France in action, as
well as to express our deep soli-
darity with the Jewish commu-
nity of France, which is the
largest Jewish community in
western Europe. Hopefully, the
15th National Board Conference
of Women's American ORT will
take place in Paris in 1984.

The greatest need today is for

threat is not anti-Semitism, it is
the growing trend towards the

bankruptcy of Jewish family.
The true dimension of Jewish
identity can be summed up as be-
ing represented by the centrality
of the family. As the sanctuary of
Jewish customs, traditions,
values, religious perception, and
next to synagogue, it is the prin-
cipal force in shaping the future
of Judaism.
The family home is the guiding
light for the spiritual and moral
leanings of our children. If our
progression as a people is to be
purposeful and eventful we must
keep alive the spark of Yid-
dishkite in our children, especial-
ly during their early developing
years. Just as the forester and
farmer stake the young sapling to
grow straight and strong, so it is
that the heart, mind, and soul of
our young will be enriched by
what they see at home, hear at
home, and learn at home.
I am reminded of a phrase that
came out of WWII: "There are
no atheists in the fox holes."
Which I interpret, the spark of
one's faith, and belief in the
Almighty, is never extinguished,
it waits to be reawakened.
Whether we leave a legacy for
tomorrow's fulfillment of our
dreams and hopes will depend on
what we do today.

It should be obvious by now
that Israel cannot afford to trust
"implied" recognition of its right
to exist. In 34 years of all-out
conflict, only one Arab nation,
Egypt, has offered to make peace
with the Jewish state.
The late President Sadat had
the courage and the political in-

Prime Minister Begin indirect
negotiations, with no precondi-

raelis responded generously.
Basically, that's what it's going
to take. King Hussein and the
other Arab leaders are going to
have to realize that Israel is a
fact, a permanent fixture in the
Middle East. If any Arab leader
really wants peace, he is going to
have to recognize, and deal with,
that fact.

Report From the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee

Contributions received from
Jewish communities, institutions
and individuals, adults and
school children, in sums large and
small, have raised the amount
available to JDC for Lebanon re-
lief to over $350,000. Gifts-in-
kind, such as blankets, medi-
cines, and other supplies have
brought the total value of the
program to more than $1 million.
American Jewish participation in
I^ebanon relief began in mid-June
with a JDC commitment of
Preparations For Winter
With winter rapidly approach-
ing, JDC has undertaken to play
a key role in the provision of
shelter in the camps in southern
Lebanon by purchasing 2,500
kerosene heating stoves and ex-
ploring with the government of
Israel, the government of Leba-
non, and UNRWA, a variety of
In addition JDC is stockpiling
blankets and warm clothing con-
tributed by groups and indivi-
duals in the United States and
Israel. These are held in storage
facilities near the camps so that
when the need arises they can be
distributed in a matter of hours.
Recent JDC Activities in Leba-
non Include:
The delivery of approxi-
mately 20 tons of used clothing
collected by the municipality of
Jerusalem and distributed on
Sept. 14 to Christian groups in
Sidon and to Palestinian refugees
in the Ain El-Hilweh camp.
An emergency campaign to
inoculate all children in south
Lebanon against polio following
the discovery of three polio cases.
The program covered 60,000 chil-
dren up to the age of three and
was conducted in August in co-
operation with the Lebanese Red
Cross and UNRWA. JDC pro-
vided funds for the purchase of
supplies, rental of minibuses to
reach remote villages, and addi-
tional public health personnel.
Anti-polio serum was provided
by the Ministries of Health of
Lebanon and Israel.
Six thousand packets of oral
rehydration solution were pur-
chased for shipment to south
Lebanon in August, urgently
needed for the treatment of
dysentery, the number one killer
of children. The solution and
Arabic-language posters on its
proper use were distributed to
both Lebanese government hos-
pitals and UNRWA outpatient
JDC purchased supplies for
the eight outpatient clinics and
hospitals in south Lebanon
operated by the Lebanese
government and UNRWA so
that these could quickly resume
normal operations. The purchase
included five kidney dialysis
JDC enabled the City of
Tyre to lease bulldozers and
heavy trucks to remove debris
from 36 of the worst sites identi-
fied by the mayor and members
of the Tyre City Council. The
clean-up was a necessary first
step in the reconstruction of
housing and water and sewage
As one of the first interna-
tional voluntary relief agencies to
arrive in south Lebanon, JDC
rushed aid to homeless and to
communities to begin cleaning
up. JDC distributed 3,000 foam
rubber mattresses, 900 cartons of
cooking and eating utensils each
providing for a family of six,
15,000 plastic garbage bags and a
variety of brooms and other
cleaning equipment. In addition
6,000 donated woolen blankets
and 500 donated mattresses were
also transported by JDC and

Principles and Organization
In its relief efforts in south
Lebanon, JDC assists all
civilians in need, regardless of re-
ligion, politics or national affilia-
tion. Furthermore, all assistance
is channeled through duly consti-
tuted local Lebanese agencies
and government departments.
Israeli government representa-
tives are kept duly informed of
JDC activities and the coopera-
tion of the chief of civilian relief
for the Israeli government is con-
tinuously elicited. Any material
assistance, however, whether in
the form of supplies or funds, is
effected through Lebanese,
rather than Israeli, frameworks.
JDC coordinates its efforts
with thoee of other voluntary,
non-government agencies func-
tioning in Lebanon (to date, JDC

(JTA) Premier Mena-
chem Begin's sudden re-
turn to Israel because of the
death of his wife t,
has prevented the Reagan
Administration from put-
ting personal pressure on
the Israeli Premier to freeze
the establishment of Jewish
settlements on the West
Bank. Begin is not ex-
pected to return to the U.S.
Reagan made it clear at his na-
tionally televised press confer-
ence last Thursday night that he
would discuss his request for a
settlement freeze with Begin
when the two were to meet this
Friday as scheduled. "I'm sure
that he and I will have some talks
on that as well as other sub-
jects," Reagan said in response
to a question on the settlements.
"We do think that it is a hind-
rance to what we are trying to ac-
complish for the peace move-
HE OUTLINED these objec-
tives as bringing the Arab states
and the Arab leaders and the Is-
raeli leaders together at the
negotiating table to resolve the
difference between them and that
begins with them recognizing
Israel's right to exist."
The American effort received
support from Egyptian Foreign
Minister Kamal Hassen Ali, who
after a two-and-a-half hour meet-
ing with Secretary of State
George Shultz at the State De-
partment last Friday, said he
hoped that Begin's visit to
Washington would "mark a be-
ginning of a change of policy and
Ali said that "it is unfortunate
that at a time when the United
States government was actively
seeking broader participation in
the peace process, Israel rejected
the President's (September 1
peace) initiative and declared its
intention to build new settle-
ments in the occupied West
Bank." He said that Israel plans
to settle 1.3 million people on the
West Bank over the next 30 years
and charged this would result in
the "annexation" of the territor-
MEANWHILE, Reagan at his
press conference again ruled out
using sanctions against Israel to
force a freeze. "I don't think it
would be good diplomacy to be
threatening or anything," he '
said. "And I don't believe it is
necessary. I think that all of us
recognize that peace is the
ultimate goal."
When it was suggested that
the U.S. cut its aid by the
amount Israel spends on its West
Bank settlements, estimated at
$100 million by the questioner,
Reagan said he did not know
what the figure was although he
could find out. But he said, it
would be neither "helpful" nor
"fruitful" to discuss this possi-
He noted that "progress" was
being made in bringing more
Arab states into the negotiations,
as demonstrated by what he
called the "unique" visit to him
by a delegation of the Arab
League last month. "There's a
need now for Israel to itself rec-
ognize that they must play a part
in making it possible for negotia-
tions," he said. He indicated that
a settlement freeze would also
help Lebanese President Amin
Gemayel in his task of reconciling
Lebanese Moslem groups to his
new government.
ALI, after the meeting with
Shultz, said that Egypt wants
the peace process started at
Camp David to "flourish and
widen as to encompass every one
m the area." He said Egypt was
"deeply concerned over the loss
of momentum" but praised
Reagan's peace initiative as a
"positive step toward a just,
lasting and comprehensive peace
in the Middle East."
ON LEBANON, Reagan said
he could not say when the U.S.
marines could leave that country.
He said they and the other mem-
bers of the force, the French and
Italian troops, would stay there
until the U.S. could accomplish
two goals, first, when it was clear
that the Gemayel government
was able to "stabilize and be able
to take charge of its borders,"
and secondly, the withdrawal of
the Syrian, Palestine Liberation
Organization and Israeli forces
from Lebanon which Reagan said
the U.S. was working to accom-
plish as "fast as we can."
Ali, who said he discussed the
Lebanese situation with Shultz,
told reporters that Egypt "would
like to see s speedy withdrawal of
Israeli and other foreign forces
from Lebanon. It is imperative
that no obstacle be put in the im-
plementation of this undertaking.
He said the Egyptian Ambas-
sador to Israel had been recalled
to Cairo after the September Bei-
rut massacre and would return to
Israel when there was a change in
the "atmosphere," and it waa
"clear" that Israel would with-
draw its forces from Lebanon.
ALI, who called briefly on
Reagan Friday to give him
letter from Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak, said he and
Shultz also discussed the Taba
dispute. He said Egypt wants a
"peaceful settlement" of this dis-
pute with Israel and hopes it can
be accomplished with the help of
the U.S.
The Egyptian offficial said he
also urged Shultz that the U.S.
should begin talks with the PLO.
But he said that during his meet-
ing with a PLO official in Paris
recently, the PLO had not offered
to recognize Israel in return for
Israel recognizing it as has been

Its huge oil fields (and still
larger oil reserves) are the main
source of supply for our NATO

oil now constitutes only 3.7 per-
cent of the oil consumed in the

tial supporters. Any country

The $8 billion of U.S. goods

to slacken the Saudi thirst for
American goods and services.
The huge construction con-
tracts awarded each year to
American giants like Bechtel,
Fluor and others create still

porate supporters. The fact that
American firms must compete for
these contracts with construction
companies all over the world only
makes them more vulnerable to
Arab governments' pressure. The
drying up of construction in the
U.S. serves to make the Saudi
contracts even more attractive;
some of these exceed $1 billion

posit in American banks a sum
estimated at least $25 billion.

Jewish Day School Objectives
Over many centuries, those
who are concerned with teaching
have attempted to define the goal
of education. To learn, to live
comfortably in the world, to
develop one's greatest potential,
to appreciate beauty, to
manipulate the forces of nature,
to discover the secrets of the uni-
verse all of these have been
put forward as desirable aims of
the educational process.
For Jews the goal has been the
same down through the ages.
Whether in the east European
classroom (Chedar), in the home
of the teacher, or in the modern,
well-equipped room in a modern
building, the aim of Jewish edu-
cation has always been to train
the child to know the Torah and
to live by its principles.
The sages of old recognized
that the mere accumulation of
facts is not the greatest good of
life. The ability to solve an
algebraic or geometric problem,
to recall the dates of great events,
to know the earth's geography, to
speak foreign languages, to be
familiar with great literature
none of these, nor all of them
together can prepare people to
live happy, useful lives unless
this accumulative knowledge is
directed to promote one's own
happiness and that of others.
In a well-known statement, the
rabbinic attitude towards learn-
ing was succinctly summarized.
"Not learning (Midrash) is the
important thing, but deeds
(Maaseh)." Hitler's scientists
found it easy to twist their learn-
ing to demonstrate the racial
inferiority of Jews and then to
devise scientifically the means of
efficiently ending the lives of six
million Jews. Their knowledge
was used for amoral ends.
There is an interesting
Talmudic statement that while
"knowledge" (or "wisdom") is
possessed by other nations, only
among the Jewish people can one
find "Torah." What is the mean-
ing of this strange statement? To
me it seems that what the ancient
rabbi meant was that among
other nations there is ample
learning and scholarship, but
that knowledge which is infused
with moral purpose (Torah) is to
be found only among the Jews.
This may be a gratuitous as-
sumption on his part, but it is a
brief statement of the aim and
purpose of Jewish education.
Recently, the move of our local
Jewish Community Day School
to its own campus was quietly
accomplished. It was so low key
that many in our Jewish com-
munity were hardly aware of the
change-over. More important
than any fanfare is that, the
study of Torah continues. To
those who are attending the Day
School in its handsome new
quarters, we offer our best
wishes. We hope they achieve the
ambitions which they cherish.
But we admonish them always to
remember what we have tried to
teach them is not merely "Choch-
mah" but rather "Torah"
knowledge aglow with righteous-
ness. May they use their acquired
learning and skills to improve the
quality of their own lives as well
as the lives of others. May they
always turn their "Chochmah"
into "Torah."

According to reports from the
Tunisian Civil Protection Coun-
cil, more than 100 people have
been killed in the floods and
many thousands made homeless.
The flooding took place in and
around the southern city of Sfax
and the northern city of
Zaghouan on Oct. 30 and 31.
JDC Executive Vice President
Ralph I. Goldman reported the
small Jewish community in Sfax
was "well and safe," and the rest
of the 6,000 Jews of Tunisia,
most of whom live in the city of
Tunis, were not directly affected
by the flooding.
The JDC, the overseas relief
arm of the American Jewish com-
munity, has an annual budget of
$40.3 million for aid to Jewish
communities in more than 30 na-
tions around the world. Other
non-sectarian disaster relief pro-
grams supported by JDC are in
Lebanon, Thailand and for Cam-
bodian refugees, and, previously,
in Italy, Rumania and Yugos-
lavia for earthquake victims.
The Joint Distribution
Committee is the major Ameri-
can agency serving Jewish
agencies abroad. The JDC re-

announcement that it will build
five new settlements on the West
Bank "raises questions about
Israel s willingness to abide by
the promises of (United Nations
security Council! Resolution 242
that territory will be exchanged
for true peace."
The strongly worded state-
ment, read by Department
deputy spokesman Alan Rom-
berg in reply to a Question about
the announcement by Israel also
implied that Israel was seeking to
hamper U.S. efforts to bring
other Arab countries into the
Middle East peace process, a
major element of President Rea-
gan's "fresh start" for the Middle
East announced last Sept. 1.
Reagan, who in his peace ini-
tiative urged Israel to freeze set-
tlements, is expected to make
this point strongly when he
meets Premier Menachem Begin
at the White House. Meanhwile,
Israel's Ambassador to the U.S.,
Moshe Arens, was to meet Secre-
tary of State George Shultz late
this afternoon at Arens' request.
Romberg noted that Reagan,
in his nationally televised ad-
dress September 1, and other
U.S. officials in public and
private, have made clear the
"strength of the feeling" in the
Administration of the "unhelp-
fulness of settlement activity to
peace process."
This latest clash between the
U.S. and Israel over settlements
followed the announcement by
Deputy Premier and Housing
Minister David Levy last night
that five new settlements will be
built on the West Bank. Levy
spoke at the dedication of
another new settlement near the
Arab town of Ramallah. He said
the five new settlements would be
built with their own infrastruc-
ture and that 2,000 more housing
units were presently under con-
struction for Jewish settlers in
the occupied territory.

berg said: "The United

to begin work on additional set-

Nation of a Pales-
TORONTO The head of
Canada's largest Protestant de-
nomination has expressed his
shame at the spectacle of "Chris;
tians" perpetrating "a pogrom"
in the Shatila and Sabra refugee
camps in west Beirut.
In a sermon delivered in Ac-
tion, Ontario, the Rev. Clarke
MacDonald, recently elected
Moderator of the United Church
of Canada, declared: "The elo-
quent, almost total silence on the
part of the Christian community
in Canada regarding events in the
Middle East, especially the mas-
sacres which took place at Shatila
and Sabra, speaks volumes. As
one of the leaders in that com-
munity I admit complicity in this
silence, although I would reject
the notion that it is a conspiracy
of silence."
Christians, MacDonald stated,
"must share deeply the sense of
shock that has shaken the Jewish
community. While we may pro-
test against the media use of the
adjective 'Christian' to define the
Phalangists, yet we cannot deny
that likely 90 percent or more of
these people have been baptized
in the name of Jesus Christ. That
such persons should be the per-
petrators of a pogrom against
helpless women, women with
children, and old people ... is in-
comprehensible to anyone who
tries to have that mind which is
in Christ."
MacDonald said the tragedy
raises a question. "How can we
emphasize our common
humanity?" By raising this ques-
tion, "among many others to
which I would like to see us ad-
dress ourselves ... we may make
some contribution to 'humaniz-
ing our distant tomorrows' and
prevent the recurrence of a holo-
caust anywhere on the planet

bers who began a fast in soli-
darity with the Soviet Jewish
Prisoner of Conscience Anatoly
Sharansky, who is serving a
13-year prison term, began an in-
definite hunger strike in the
notorious Christopol Prison on
the eve of Yom Kippur. The ac-
tions in front of the Soviet Mis-
sion were coordinated by the
Student Struggle for Soviet Jew-
ry, which has conducted a daily
vigil at the Mission since
Sharansky began his fast.
Rabbi Avraham Weiss, of
Stern College and the Hebrew In-
stitute of Riverside (N.Y.), who
was in the third day of his hunger
strike (Nov. 2) told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that he will
continue to fast "as long as I am
physically able to do so. The con-
science of the world must be
aroused to the tragic plight of
Sharansky." He also said he had
received a pledge from Sister
Rose Thering of Seton Hall Uni-
versity (South Orange, N.J.) that
she and other nuns would also
stage a hunger strike.
While the sympathy hunger
strike continues in front of the
Soviet Mission, classes are also
being conducted by other rabbis
from Stern College and prayer
services are being held.
NEW YORK The United
States should demand an inde-
pendent investigation of the re-
ported use of the United Nations
Relief and Works Agency's facili-
ties by PLO terrorists in Leba-
non, the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith said. Burton
Levinson, chairman of the ADL's
national executive committee
said that if the inquiry turns up
evidence of links between
UNRWA and the PLO, the U.S.
should withhold financial support
for the relief agency.
A resolution calling for the in-
quiry was passed unanimously at
the closing session of ADL's
national executive committee,
the agency's policy-making body,
which met Oct. 28 through Oct.
31 at the Westin Galleria Hotel
in Houston, Texas. By law, the
ADL resolution noted, "the
United States is prohibited from
making contributions to the
United Nations Relief and Works
Agency unless it 'takes all possi-
ble measures to assure' that no
funds reach persons receiving
military training by the PLO or
