The story broke in the media
after a report on Frankel's
column was sent from New York
by the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy. The Labor Party flatly denied
Frankel's report, but government
figures lashed out at the oppo-
sition for lack of patriotism.

that now dominate politics in
telephone interview with The Je-
rusalem Poet, refused to identify
his sources. But the Post corre-
spondent wrote that Frankel "in-
dicated strongly that they were
top leaders not secondary
iparty functionaries."
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, addressing a national
convention of the ultra-rightist
Tehiya Party in Jerusalem, said:
"Some of our critics at home even
want to invoke overseas pres-
sures to be brought to bear on the
government but never fear.
They will not succeed. The
government of Israel will never
surrender to pressure "
Shamir called on Tehiya to
give its "verve, enthusiasm and
zeal" to supporting "the govern-
ment of Israel our govern-
ment ... it is an Eretz Israel
government." He said the
government was under attack at
home and abroad for "strength-

reduced to begging America to
break Mr. Begin's political
power. And it now advocates
means that would have been
unthinkable even a few weeks
ago. The startling plea by many
leading Israelis (is) that the
United States reduce its econo-
mic aid to their nation."
Frankel stated that Begin's
opponents "acknowledge poli-
tical weakness, which is mainly
due to Mr. Begin's success in
rallying the large, resentful com-
munity of Middle Eastern Jews
against the affluent or socialistic
elites of European origin." The
opposition, therefore, according
to Frankel, wants the U.S. to
help them topple the Begin
And to that end, leading oppo-
sition figures now risk political
oblivion by counselling sharp
cuts in America's non-military
aid of $800 million a year," Fran-
kel wrote. He concluded by
noting: "American diplomats in
Israel resist this anguished
counsel But that so many
prominent Israelis should be
inviting bankruptcy to rescue

| Challenge and Response
( The Case for the 1983 Campaign
! Challenge:
What is the 1983 Jewish Federation-United Jewish Appeal
= Response:
1 Federation's task is focused on translating our historic,
g ethical values into effective action. This is done by raising funds
I by reaching out to the approximately 60,000 Jews of Palm
E Beach County. The funds are allocated to programs and
= agencies here at home, across America, overseas, and in Israel.
E Challenge:
What is the 1983 Special Fund for Israel? How is it different
E from the regular-campaign?
|j Response:
I The human and financial cost of carrying out "Operation \
s Peace for Galilee" has been tragic and painful for Israel. The I
| Israeli government has had to redirect funds which were pro- !
I jected to support social welfare programs. Overseas Jewry, [
| through the 1983 Special Fund for Israel, will be asked to lend I
= an additional helping hand to ensure that certain social welfare \
I programs will not be terminated.
=, Challenge:
|..Why give to the 1983 Jewish Federation-United Jewish I
I Appeal Campaign?
E Response:
| You can be proud of giving to belonging to. and help- \
= ing to ensure the future of a strong Jewish community. It is a j
I way to express your solidarity and commitment to "do some- :
= thing" about problems Jews and Israel face today. And you i
= have the comfort of knowing the Federation agencies are there i
S for all of us even if you don't need them right now. You are

L'Chayim-The Jewish
Listeners Digest
L'Chayim a toast "to life"
but so much more for-listeners
of radio station WPBR 1340 AM
Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.
People who have never tuned in
to "L'Chayim" owe it to them-
selves to experience this 30
minute weekly series billed as the
"Jewish Listerners Digest." Pro-
duced in New York by the Jewish
Education in Media and hosted
by Rabbi Mark S. Golub, it
broadcasts the most dynamic
people, ideas and events in the
Jewish world plus a short seg-
ment of important Palm Beach
County happenings.
The magazine and talk show
format enables a variety of sub-
jects and personalities to be
presented on each broadcast -
Such outstanding personalities
as Abba Eban, Isaac Baahevis
Singer, Theodore Bikel. Elie
Wiesel. Elizabeth Holtzman.
Chain) Potok and many more are
regularly heard.
During a recent visit to the
Palm Beaches, Rabbi Golub was
asked which Jewish personalities
whom he has interviewed during
the four years of "L'Chayim"
have impressed him the most. He
unhesitantly responded, "I per-
sonally am concerned with
awakening a greater sense of
Jewish identity and commitment
among those Jews who know in-
tuitively that there is something
precious about being Jewish but
who can't articulate it and who
never had the opportunity to
study the Jewish traditions on an
adult level. Therefore, the people
who have moved me the most
whom I have interviewed are
those who touched upon what it
really means to be Jewish."
Eli Wiesel is considered by
Rabbi Golub to be the rabbi of
modern Jewish life. "It is very
moving to me when Wiesel ex-
plains why he continues to ob-
serve Jewish commandments af-
ter the Holocaust because he feels
Jewish tradition cannot end with
him." The author, Joseph Heller,
is another personality whom
Rabbi Golub finds outstanding.
"When Heller describes his re-
turn to Jewishness, he is so re-
flective of what is happening in
American Jewry today- His
definition of what it means to be
a "mensh" (acting responsibly,
Rabbi Mark S. Golub
not for reward but out of a!
of it being the right thing wj
is most meaningful to me."
Jacob Timmerman also
pears on the rabbi's most in
sive list. According to f
"Timmerman is a non-obs
Jew for whom his Jewish id
and love for Jerusalem susti
him during his terrible prds
an Argentinian prison."

Their philosophy concerning in-
volvement with Jewish causes is,

The Lady Wanted to Be an Engineer
HAIFA The lady
wanted to be an engineer,
but fate decreed otherwise.
Instead, she carved out an
unusual career in the army,
and then became the first
woman to head a major
bank in Israel. Those are
only the bare details in the
story of Dvora Tomer, who
as head of a mortgage
bank, never in her life fore-
closed a mortgage. There is
more to the story than that.
Her family brought her to
Israel when she was only one year
old. Her father was a house
painter, and the family resources
were limited. At the age of 14 she
was already a member of the
Haganah. Her ambition was to
enroll at the Technion and
become an engineer, but the
expense was more than the
family could bear. On the eve of
her compulsory military services,
in 1949, she took a chance course
in economics, just to fill the time.
"I WASN'T even quite sure
what economics was all about,"
she said, but once the course
began she found that it appealed
to her. She was able to combine
her military service with univer-
sity studies, and majored in stat-
istics and management. Then,
back into the army she went. In
1956, she was assigned to the
office of the financial adviser to
the Army Chief of Staff,
becoming assistant to the head of
the office and reaching the rank
of Colonel.
GHQ noted that the slightly-
built woman had a talent for
finance, for human relations and
for administration. In 1970, she
was appointed to the highest post
a woman can hold in Israel's
Defense Forces, commander of
the Women's Corp (Chen) a
position she held for three years.
Private industry then
beckoned. Completely free of any
political background or af-
filiation, and indeed apolitical in
her views, she nonetheless ac-
cepted invitation to join the staff
ol Israel's Labor Bank, Bank
Hapoalim, as director of savings
accounts. Within a few years, she
became head of Mishkan, a Bank
Hapoalim affiliate, and the
second largest mortgage bank in
the country, with a present
balance sheet in excess of
S350.OO0.0O0. That was not the
EARLIER THIS year, Dvora
Tomer was elevated to the post of
deputy managing director of the
entire Bank Hapoalim complex.
Higher than that, no woman had
ever risen before in Israel's
financial world.
The lady is a banker, but one
would never suspect that was her
profession. She is quiet, pleasant,
modest, soft-spoken; she is
motherly, but not matronly, and
possesses an air of obvious ef-
She consented to our interview,
but hastened to protest that she
was not a prodigy or a wun-

George Shultz declared last week. The issue is not
academic freedom, but aiding and abetting terrorist
acts against a democratic ally.
In fact, comments Morris J. Amitay, whose politi-
cal columns appear in The Jewish Floridian, the
teachers were not asked to sign "loyalty oaths" at
all. Says Amitay, all they were asked to do was
"pledge not to aid an organization dedicated to the
violent overthrow of Israel and actually at-
tempting to do so."
We agree. And Amitay comes specially-equipped
to know, not only as a columnist and Washington
observer these days, but also as a consequence of his
previous long tenure with the America Israel
Political Action Committee there.
Amitay conjectures that the Shultz | press confer-
ence remarks are a bellwether of new Administration
policies geared toward confrontation with Israel.
Indeed, the distinct possibility is that Shultz's ob-
servations during his conference were a last-minute
substitute for the inauguration of these policies
intended to be made by President Reagan during his
talks with Prime Minister Begin talks cancelled
when the Prime Minister suddenly flew back to Israel
when his wife, Aliza, died.
What seems to be occurring these days, is a
sudden toughening of American foreign policy
toward Israel, but we agree with Amitay that "Israel
is unlikely to cave in, the Arabs are unlikely to come
to the negotiating table, and the U.S. interest in a
genuine peace is unlikely to be advanced."
All except, of course, for the media, whose new
anti-Israel mode will give them something to raise a
fuss about. Intransigence, and that sort of thing. In
this, the Administration will serve at least some
West Germany Calling
To say that Israeli Premier Menachem Begin and
West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt had a
falling out may be an understatement. After a series
of bitter personal exchanges last year, diplomatic
relations between the two countries fell to a new low
and reconciliation seemed far off in the distance.
Schmidt's position in the Middle East dispute,
supporting the nearly dead European Economic
Community Venice Declaration of 1980 calling for
the "association" of the PLO in peace negotiations,
did not sit well in official Israeli leadership circles.
But now with the fall of the long ruling Schmidt
coalition government and the rise of Helmut Kohl,
leader of the Christian Democratic Union, initial
indications are signaling toward a time of better
relations between the two governments.
Since coming to power last September, Kohl has
maintained a low keyed approach toward the Middle
East. But recently, meeting with a group of Jewish
leaders in New York at the tail end of a visit to the
United States, Kohl enunciated some policy direction,
toward Israel, indicating a more sympathetic view
toward the Jewish State.
Kohl said he supports the Camp David process,
which he indicated to the Reagan Administration in
his meetings earlier. Overall, Kohl's position seems
congruous with many in the American Jewish
community who realize that strong diplomatic
relations between West Germany and Israel can only
enhance the prospect for a just and lasting peace in
the Middle East.
On The Front Burner:
Confusion overtook much of
the American-Jewish community
with regard to Israel, as a result
of recent events in Lebanon.
Media attacks are intended to
weaken the resolve of American
Jews to support Israel. We must
guard against attempts to divide
The moral reaction in Israel
following the situation in Leba-
non, is a measure of Israel's de-
cency. A people who are indiffer-
ent and amoral would not care.
They would shrug everything off
and go on with their day by day
tasks and concerns. But Israel is
a vibrant democracy, unafraid of
the truth
How many nations in the world
would go through such a self-
reckoning process?
Most Lebanese are wondering
what the noise is all about.
Decades of blood letting has
hardened them. But Israel is not
indifferent. Her people care. And
because they care, they deserve

Bitter Irony:
Someone once suggested to
Helen Keller that being born
blind was the worst tragedy that
could befall an individual. Miss
Keller disagreed. "No," she said,
"the worst things is to be born
sighted, but to lack vision."
Not The First Time:
The Christians in Lebanon
continue repeating that only the
State of Israel came to the rescue
of the Christians. This led Rabbi
Menahem Hacohen of Israel to
observe that now, as once before,
the savior of the Christians is a
At the International Council of
Christians and Jews held in
Berlin, Monsignor H. S. Har-
fouche of Lebanon, spoke of the
thousands of Christians killed by
the Palestinian terrorists, and of
his personally seeing many
priests and nuns butchered in
their own homes by these terror-
ists. Yet, the Pope and the world
remained silent. The Monsignor
said not one European or Arab
country extended its hand to
help. Israel, he said, was the only
country who helped them from
being exterminated by the Pales-
tinian terrorists.
Dr. Franklin H. Littell, a Unit-
ed Methodist Minister and Pro-
fessor at Temple University,
speaking as president of the Na-
tional Christian Leadership Con-
ference for Israel, which includes
Protestants, Fundamentalists,
Roman Catholics and others,
commented that it was good to
see a government (Israel) not
ashamed to protect the well-being
of its citizens.
In the "PLO" arms caches, Is-
rael found many cases of am-
munition still containing the
original shipping instructions:
"From the U.S. Government to
the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia."
On the Home Front:
Joseph Churba, former mem-
ber of our State Department and
now president of the Center for
International Security a
private think tank in Washing-
ton, D.C., stated: "The pentagon
is seeking solutions to problems
which Israel has clearly solved.
We could save hundreds of mil-
lions, perhaps billions of dollars,
by tapping into Jewish tech-
nological genius. Instead, we are
pursuing an Arabs-First policy."

TEFRA, which is the acronym
for the 1982 tax revenue raising
measure generally requires with-
holding from, payments for pen-
sions, annuities, profit sharing or
other plans deferring the receipt
of compensation, as well as on
IRA's and commercial annuities.
Unlike withholding on interest
and dividends, which commences
July 1, 1983, the program on the
payments enumerated above will
start on Jan. 1,1983.
T..e method of withholding
used depends upon the type of
payment. Periodic payments are
treated as wages for withholding
purposes. The amount withheld
is based on the wage withholding
tables and determined in accor-
dance with the retiree's withhold-
ing certificate. If none is in effect,
it is presumed that the payee is a
married individual claiming three
exemptions. This will effectively
exclude from withh6kting a
monthly payment of S460 or
85,400 on an annual basis. If a re-
tiree receives more than one pen-
sion, providing combined
amounts in excess of 15,400,
though each person is below that
amount, it might be prudent to
request withholding in lieu of
paying estimated taxes.
Non-periodic distributions are
subject to a different withholding
rule. A non-periodic distribution
would include a total lump sum
withdrawal of a participant's
amount in a profit sharing plan,
or a partial surrender of an an-
nuity. Here the amount withheld
is determined under Internal
Revenue Service supplied tables
that will reflect special methods
of computation, such as 10-year
forward averaging. A 10 percent
rate is used for withdrawals from
IRA's and other non-periodic dis-
tributions which are not lump
sum distributions.
Withholding from interest and
dividends is mandatory.
However, a recipient of any pay-
ment described herein may elect
out of withholding. Unless there
is an affirmative election out,
withholding is mandatory. To
elect out, an exemption certifi-
cate must be filed with the payor,
which will be supplied by him.
Pension trustees will be re-
quired to explain the new
procedures to all pensioners in
two separate notices, one in
advance which will presumably
explain how the election out will
be made, and one with the first
The decision to elect out is a
personal one, depending upon the
tax status of the recipient. The
amount withheld is considered as
a payment for estimated tax.
Failure to file an estimated tax
for 1983 will carry very substan-
tial penalties. If the payments are
monthly, for example, the loss of
the use of the withheld amount
should be weighed against the
problems involved in preparing
and paying a quarterly estimated

ovations. And with each concert
came the acclaim that the Soviet
Emigre Orchestra is unique in its
musicianship and ensemble. Led
by Maestro Gosman from the
concertmaster's chair, the or-
chestra performs works from
Vivaldi to Shostakovich in this
rare European tradition.
The feeling of freedom and joy
infuses both orchestra and

Israeli officials, worried about
the deterioration in relations with
the new Lebanese government,
are heartened by signs that not
all Christian Lebanese officials

approach toward Israel.

paper, Al A ma I, is urging Leba-

toward Israel. Kol Yisrael de-
clares that this is the first call of
its kind since Amin Gemayel be-

way and a wrong way. Just about
a year ago in this space, I said
that a teaching guide on the Ku
Klux Klan published by the Na-
tional Education Association and
the Council on Interracial Books
for Children was an example of
the wrong way, despite some
very useful historical materials
that it contained. But now we
have a far more extensive tool for
teachers on the same subject,
published by the Anti-Defama-
tion League of B'nai B'rith, the

Klan and other extremist groups.
ADL does it right.
Teachers know there is need for
such materials. There has been an
apparent increase in Klan ac-
tivity around the country, and
young people are especially
targeted in recruitment drives. It
is important to arm students
with the facts.
The ADL curriculum is design-
ed, says its introduction, "to help
educate young people to the
dangers posed by extremist
groups, to aid them to learn the
dire consequences of racism and
totalitarianism, and to arm them
with the skills and knowledge
they need to reject the appeals of
those who would destroy our
freedoms and our democratic
society." It is an extremely use-
ful tool. Teachers may order it for

derkind of any kind. To the
contrary, she told us, she had not
even been first in any of her
classes just an ordinary
student, though it appears that
the advances in her career were
based on recognition of genuine
ability, rather than on any luck.
SHE IS not a crusading
feminist, and believes that
women must find the golden path
between family's home and
career. She does not favor women
over men, nor lean over back-
wards against them. Still, when
in the army, she was responsible
for righting certain injustices. In
the early days, men were given
enlistment grants women not,
until she changed the policy.
Career soldiers were given help in
obtaining an education, and she
insisted that the same benefit be
extended to the girls.
She recalls when, not so very
long ago, women's signatures
were not accepted on mortgages
in Israel, not even as co-signers.
Women who want a career
should not do so at the sacrifice
of family life, she feels. Under-
standing is required by husband,
by the children, and by the
employer as well. Conflict can be
avoided if acceptance of major
outside responsibilities is
deferred until the children are old
enough not to miss their mother's
personal care and attention.
Banking in Israel is highly
competitive, and we asked her
what, in her opinion, distin-
guished Bank Hapoalim from the
IN THE first place, she said, it
seeks to provide banking services
where most needed, and was the
first to open branches in
provincial and border towns even
where there was little commercial
motivation. And in the second
place, it puts the accent on
service to the small depositor
the wage earner. Thus, it
initiated in Israel the privilege of
end-of-month overdraft for wage

Dvora Tomer laughed. "It's
true, but neither have most other
bankers in Israel. In this country
every mortgage is underwritten
by three guarantors, and if the
mortgage holder cannot pay,
somebody else will. So there are
no evictions."
"And have you ever regretted
that you did not study

Neither of her two children,
ages 20 and 24, is interested in
either banking or engineering,
but they have reached an age
which does free their mother to
accept major responsibilities as
the highest ranking woman

Historian Hillel Arzieli
Dead in Rome at 74
HOME (JTA) Prof. Hillel Arzieli. a teacher of
Hebrew, Talmud, Kabbalah and Jewish history in Rome
for the past 15 years, was buried on the Mount of Olives in
Jerusalem Nov. 18. He died here at the age of 74. His body
was flown to Israel for burial.
Born Uyusha Ivasoff in Tiflis in the Russian province of
Georgia, he came to Palestine in 1923, making a long
march through Turkey with his parents, grandparents
and three brothers. He had been teaching in Rome since
1907 under the auspices of the Jewish Agency and was

News in Brief
Draper Begged Israel to 'Stop Massacre'
By JTA Report
dan, the representative in Beirut
of Israel's Foreign Ministry, in
testimony before the board of in-
quiry into the Sabra and Shatila
massacre, reported Sunday that
special U.S. envoy Morris Draper
telephoned him the morning of
Saturday, Sept. 18, to insist that
Israel "stop the massacres" by
Lebanese Christian forces.
In a report from the Washing-
ton Post Service, Draper is
quoted as having accused Israel
in stern language of respon-
sibility for the "terrible" and
"obscene" massacres.
Kashdan told the committee of
inquiry that Draper had called
him to warn Israel against allow-
ing the Christian militia into the
camps. The Kashdan testimony
was believed to have made public
the first official U.S. reaction to
the events at Sabra and Shatila.
According to the Washington
Post, Draper's call preceded by
only hours the statement by
President Reagan in which he ex-
pressed his "outrage and revul-
sion" to the massacre.

Cohen said, "There is already
religious pluralism in Israel, but
we are seeking to make that
pluralism perceived. Above all,
the Conservative Movement is
concerned to see that the

Reports of Jewish Schism
'Grossly Exaggerated,' CJF Assembly Told
(JTA) Reports of a
schism between world Jew-
ry and Israel in the wake of
the war in Lebanon and the
massacre of Palestinians in
west Beirut refugee camps
have been grossly exagge-
rated. In fact, just the
reverse is true, Martin
Citin, ^ president of the
Council of Jewish Fed-
erations, said here.
Addressing some 3,000 Jewish
leaders and activists from the
United States and Canada at the
gala 50th anniversary General
Assembly of the CJF at the
Bonaventure Hotel here, he
"What we have lived through
in the last several months has
strengthened us. Let those who
feel otherwise understand clearly
that there is not now, never has
been and never will be a single
crack in the support of all of
world Jewry where the con-
tinuing strength and security of
the nation of Israel is imperiled."
CITRIN, whose address dealt
with "insuring the commitment
of the next generation," em-
phasized that to assure that
commitment, it is necessary to
create a joint agenda "for the
people of Israel, the Jewish
people, with the nation of Israel."
Furthermore, he said, the basic
element in that agenda "is to do
what we can to help insure peace
for that beleaguered land."
Rut. Citrin pointed out, there
is another side to this joint
agenda "As American Jews we
must work with our Israeli broth-
era and sisters to help them
understand us and we them."' he
said. "As we salute the saga of
' heir accomplishments
unequalled in modern times as
we seek to continually under
stand and share their fears and
concerns, so must we help them
understand us our love of
country, home and birthplace to
most of us."
He added, however, "This does
not in one iota lessen the cen-
i rainy of Israel in our spiritual
and cultural lives. This does not
lessen the resolve and energy
that we hold ready to pour out in
full measure for the security end
fulfillment of every single one of
our Israeli brothers and sisters."
joint agenda, Citrin said, "are our
deep concerns about anti-
Semitism and relationships here
in North America and world-
wide. We have recently lived
through and continue to live
through, a period of violence and
shocks that have caused us to
take a new sobering look at the
ugly turn that world events have
taken the very real effort to
delegitimize the State of Israel,
to equate racism with Zionism,
terrorist acts in France and Italy
which seek to put the Jewish
communities of the world at peril
of their very acceptance and
While Jews around the world
find themselves in a generally
perilous situation, "the prophecy
of Abraham has come to full
fruition here in North America,
lor the people of Israel," Citrin
pointed out. "At no time or
place in their history have Jews
.s a people a group been so
iree, affluent, accept vd, in-
luential and satisfied as now in
\orth America."
Their status and impact in
Vorth America is even greater
ban it is in Europe, Citrin said,
vhere the Jewish legacy includes
wo Premiers of France, a Prime
vfinister of Austria, a Mayor in
Ireland. Germany s most lamou
poet, and intellectual a-
scientific iriants like Sigmunu
Freud, Albert Einstein, Marc
Chagall, Jonas Salk and Martin
North American Jewish com-
munity has in no small part been
due to the work of the communal
Federations in organizing and
institutionalizing "an in-
comparable network for human
services for our own people and
for the disadvantaged of this
continent and beyond," Citrin
To show how well the
Federations system has done,
Citrin offered some comparison
data 1932 versus 1982. "As a
base line reference," he said, in
1932, the Jewish population in
North America was 4,380,000; in
1982, 6,263,000, an increase of
some 43 percent. In 1932, there
were 125 Federations although
the majority of these were welfare
funds only and not full-fledged
Federations. Today, there are
200 full-fledged Federations in
North America.
Continuing, Citrin pointed out
that there were 3,500 synagogues
in North America in 1932 and
5,400 today; 2,000 Jewish schools
in 1932 and 2,500 today. Within
those numbers, there were 12 day
schools in 1932, compared to 600
today; student enrollment num-
bered 200,000 in 1932, compared
to 360,000 today.
IN 1932, Citrin said, Jews in
North America raised $17 million
in their annual campaign; in
1982. Jews in North America will
have raised through Federation
campaigns, including Project
Renewal, $640 million. Starting
from an organization of 13
Federations in 1932, it has grown
to 200 Federations today.
What of the next 50 years?
Citrin asked. What will be the
North American agenda and how
will it be implemented? The
approach to this will require "a
new element of creative and
expansive thinking." It will
require, Citrin added, experi-
mentation, blazing new trails,
taking risks and bringing to bear
"the full force of our people and
dollar resources" in "new and
daring ways."
The first priority on the agenda
of total concerns in Jewish
education, Citrin said. "Without
Jewish education, there is no
Jewish people, he observed. "Our
best bulwark against assi-
milation, our best nourishment
for healthy Federations and
healthy Jewish communities is
Jewish education."
WHAT WOULD it mean,
Citrin asked, "if we could provide
a free Jewish education for all
Jewish children and adults?
Suppost we had in North
America Jewish day schools of all
persuasions of the caliber of an
Eton or Exeter in every major
Jewish community? What an
impact this would have for our

of Jewish concerns, Citrin said, is

since March and that Iraqi

later did. Zipori elaborated on the

the commission went into closed

claimed credit for the attempt on

invasion of Lebanon.
Nidal broke with the Palestine
Liberation Organization in 1972
over what he considered a too
moderate stance. He was sen-
tenced to death in absentia by El
Fatah for ordering attacks on
PLO officials. He has also been
responsible for attacks on Pales-

IN OTHER matters, Hughes
said the reason talks have not
started between Israel, Lebanon
and the U.S. on Israel's with-
drawal from Lebanon is that
some issues between Lebanon

But he said the U.S. was "en-
thusiastic about an early start
and very enthusiastic about early
withdrawal" of all foreign forces
from Lebanon.
Hughes said that Philip Habib,
who was the U.S. special envoy
for the crisis in Lebanon, was in
Washington for talks at the State
Department. But there are no
plans to send him back to the
Middle East although that was
"always possible," Hughes said.

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Jewish People and Places
Weizmann President to Speak
Just a few hours of watching
TV, wfll bring onto your screen
the words, "Captioned For the
Hard of Hearing." A look at the
listings of programs in your local
newspaper will identify with a
symbol, all programs that have
been adapted for those with a
hearing deficiency.
It has been estimated that at
least 6,000 Jews in the United
States are deaf and non-vocal.
The expression "deaf and dumb"
is no longer an acceptable term or
manner in which to indentify
these men, women and children.
Many young people of the Jewish
faith who have been born with
this form of handicap or upon be-
coming afflicted through a
disease or accident at an early
age, long to be part of the Jewish
community and to be able to fol-
low the spoken prayers.
What can be done for a boy
who yearns to be Jew in every
way, but is denied the chance to
learn his Bar Mitzvah lessions
and therefore in the eyes of the
community has not reached man-
hood in his parent's Congrega-
tion? What of those young men
and women who are unable to re-
cite the Kaddish for a deceased
parent at the graveside or on the
anniversary of their parent's
death, and for those that are un-
able to recite the marriage vows
and understand the blessings of
their Rabbi?
There has been a growing trend
to bring the Torah into the lives
of all these people including
the blind. It has been growing
slowly throughout the country.
For too long, religious teaching
and biblical quotations placed the
deaf in the same grouping with
minors and the incompetent.
That is, those people who could
not be held responsible for their
actions. Rabbis considered deaf
people too difficult to manage
and in many instances courts
would not allow afflicted persons
to serve as a witness or to be in-
vovled in property transactions.
In 1956, Jewish deaf people
who craved for Judiasm, joined
together and formed the National
Congress of Jewish Deaf,
Every two years since then
they have hosted a National con-
vention which has brought to-
gether the Jewish deaf com-
munity and interested hearing
Jews and educators from all over
the United States and Israel. One
main concern of the NCJD is the
encouragement of Rabbis to work
with the deaf by learning the sign
language through which they are
able to communicate. A scholar-
ship fund was established to aid
in this effort but an unfortunate
accident caused the death of the
first candidate in the progiam.
Alton Silver, a deaf graduate of
Gallaudet College, entered He-
brew Union College to become a
Reformed Rabbi. He died shortly
before he was to be ordained.
One of the most suitable insti-
tutions for the education of the
hard of hearing is Gallaudet Col-
lege located in the northeastern
part of Washington D.C. Al-
though it is not affiliated with
any religious group, there are on
campus at least seven religious
clubs. In addition to many
fraternal organizations there is a
Hillel House to serve the needs of
the Jewish student. It is spon-
sored by the Washington D.C.
B'nai B'rith Lodge. Of the en-
rolled 1,227 students last year, a
full 1,200 were declared as legally
handicapped. The tuition and full
room and board fee has risen to
more than $3,000 ayear for each
student and grants and loans
have been given to at least 90
percent of the students. There are
seven residence buildings on the
93 acres since 98 percent of the
student body comes from outside
the area. There are about 160
students that come from other
countries and the Black and His-
panic enrollment account for
about 11 percent of the student
body. The efforts of the Hillel
House is truly a remarkable en-
deavor to bring some Jewish life
into the lives of these young peo-
ple who have more than lonliness
to combat in living away from
home and acheiving their educa-
tional goals. The school sponsors
plays, lectures, dances, art exhi-
bits, panel discussions and
drama, all in sign language for
this co-ed institution that has
been independent since 1865. Of
the number that apply for admis-
sion each year, the acceptance
rate is more than 49 percent of
the applicants.
Hopefully, more Jewish
students will be attracted to the
subject to the subject of
Theology and will aspire to the
Rabbinate. This would represent
a most difficult choice, for few of
the students have had contact
with their faith before their so-
cializing with other Jewish men
and women at the Hillel House.
It is through this facility that
they are able to communicate on
matters relating to their heritage
and become interested in subjects
beyond the usual liberal arts and
business courses.
There are more than a dozen
chapters of the National Con-
gress of Jewish Deaf and they are
located all over the country. The
Hebrew Association of New York
has over 750 members in it's
group. Temple Beth Or of the
Deaf in New York is supported
by 125 families and functions as a
traditional congregation. Chap-
ters are located in Brooklyn with
about 100 members and in Phila-
delphia there are about 75 mem-
bers. Congregations are also
found in Baltimore where more
than 70 congregants have banded
together and Cleveland, Ohio,
among it's 80 member, has 30
couples mostly over the age of 55.
Congregation Bern Shalom in
Chicago has a Mi-time Rabbi
who knows sign language. He is
seen on local TV each morning
giving the daily news to the deaf
community. This group also
boasts of a choir since they have
many young people in their
group. They sing by using sign
language and have designed their
own form of prayer books. The
desire to be practicing Jews has
passed over the country to Los
Angeles where High Holy Day
services were conducted by a
membership of more than 100
through the services of a Rabbi
and an interpreter who followed
the service in sign language for
all. A few miles up the coast in
Van Nuys there is Temple Beth
Solomon of the Deaf, with it's
own building and since there are
only adults they do not have any
school age children to provide for
as part of the teachings to all
ages. Sometime ago the Boston
area too had a membership of al-
most 75 Jews that used the facili-
ties of St. Andrews Center for the
Deaf and holds services one
Saturday each month.
The Jewish deaf are isolated
from the main-stream, but they
are quite motivated and struggle
with the problems that must be
resolved to be part of a religious
experience. The hearing Jews of
the world can gain much from ob-
serving the unique efforts of the
Deaf Jewish community. Con-
sider the experience of spending a
morning in prayer performed in
sign language, or the opportunity
of witnessing a Wedding or Bar
Mitzvah service. Seeing the Jews
that have lost their sight, reading
from a Seder printed in Braille
and those communicating in
prayer by sign language would be
moments to long remember by
those who have been blessed with
the ability to see, speak and hear
the prayers and observances of
our faith.
Prof. Michael Sela, President of
the Weizmann Institute of Israel,
will be featured speaker at the
1982 annual dinner tendered by
Florida supporters of the
prominent scientific center, to be
held Saturday evening,
December 11, at the Fontaine-
bleau Hilton here.
In making this annoucement,
Jay W. Weiss, general chairman
of the Florida Division of the
American Committee for the
Weizmann Institute, noted that
an attendance of 400 is expected
at the dinner-dance. Guests will
include notables of government,
industry and academia, and com-
munity leaders from across the
state as well as Puerto Rico and
the Virgin Islands. A noted film
personality who has long
identified himself with Israel is
also scheduled to speak at the
dinner, he said.
Prof. Sela is flying in specially
from Israel to address the guests
on advances made by the Insti-
tute in the areas of high
technology, science-based in-
dustry and combatting disease,
including cancer and multiple
sclerosis. He will also speak on
major research being conducted
there on the biology of aging.

OCT study of the terrorism notes
that over three-quarters of the

from Guatemala, Colombia,

Greece and Japan.
Speaking of these terrorists,
the ADL report observes that
"Allied terrorist movements are
alleged to have held ceremonies

assaults in order to demonstrate
their international solidarity and
mark their defiance of anti-ter-

folly in the extreme. The threat

another time, but it did. It can
happen here again.
THE BURDEN on us all is
doubly heavy. At a time when
major church institutions are
finally coming officially to regret
their silence during the genocide

the silence throughout the world
in the face of this new terrorism is

other segment of the American
community is similarly threat-
ened, we can expect neither un-
derstanding nor support in our
own dalayed agony here.
In fact, the fictionalized
reporting of the war in Lebanon
has turned the nation's sympath-

It may well be because of these

that Frankel's report might be "a

But Justice Minister Moshe

Nissim noted that Frankel had
told the Post that he "would not

The night before each holiday the Jews in the Scottish town
of Ayr regularly gather together in their town's tiny shul. So tiny is
their house of worship that it really isn't a house at all. It's part of a
hotel known for Kosher food!
Now if such arrangements make the Jews of Ayr unique,
certainly another of their traditions is more universally observed: the
toasting of special occasions with fine scotch whisky. In America the
favorite is J&B Rare Scotch. Blessed with a flavor that's smooth and
subtle, J&B is the scotch that whispers. So if this Erev Yontiff finds
you at home or even visiting in some quaint hotel, you'll find that
J&B is the holiday spirit to be raised without reservation!

One thing was for sure, Mary
Phagen was dead, but who did it?
Was it the black man, to get
money for drink? Was it the Jew,
to get money to go to the brothel
across the street? Much was sus-
pect throughout the trial. In fact
the only other certainty besides
Phagen's death was Frank's
death, occasioned by Governor
Slaton's being so unsure of the
court's decision based on the
facts as he saw them that he
commuted Frank's death sen-
tence and set off the raging mob
that went to revenge the honor of
little Mary.
The hanged Frank was re-
covering from a wound inflicted
by a prisoner who nearly suc-
ceeded in slitting Frank's throat
with a razor blade. Slaton's
career died along with Leo Frank.
HOW THE modern request for
pardon came to be is equally as
fascinating as is the Frank story
itself. There had been a 13-year-
old eye-witness, Alonzo Mann.
Through a variety of suspect cir-
cumstances, Mann's testimony
was never taken. He lived for 70
years with his guilt and suddenly
unburdened himself. But to
whom? To Nashville Tennessean
reporter, Jerry Thompson.
Mann had followed Thomp-
son's expose on the Ku Klux
Klan. In one part of it, Thompson
mentioned the Frank case. Mann
could no longer bear it. Gravely
ill with heart disease, he called
Thompson and said, "I can't go
to the grave with this knowledge.
I must unburden my soul."
Thompson flew to North Carolina
and grilled Mann so extensively
it would have made Perry Mason
proud. It nearly killed Alonso
Having worked with me on the
Klan story and knowing that I
had spent eight years in Atlanta,
Thompson called me one night
and said, "Swear you won't re-
veal what I'm going to tell." So I
swore. "I can prove Leo Frank is
innocent." This time I swore dif-
ferently. "Jerry, you better be
damm sure. People still come to
blows in Atlanta over that trial."
FOR THE next several weeks,
Thompson did what will be
known as the definitive research
on the Leo Frank case. He and
his colleague, Bob Sherbourne,
became obsessed. They proved
that Mann was telling the truth,
and the Nashville Tennessean on
Sunday March 7, 1982 thun-
dered: "An Innocent Man was
Thompson flew to Atlanta and
addressed a packed, hushed,
crowded Jewish Community
Center. His iron-clad research
and his passion to see justice
done infected several community
leaders who rallyed to the leader-
ship of a prominent local native
lawyer, Dale Schwartz. It became
a cause celebre, an issue in the
Governors race.
On September 17, 1982, the
letter quoted above, signed by
representatives of ADL, AJC,
and the Jewish Federation, was
addressed to the Honorable
Mobley Howell, chairman,
Georgia State Board of Pardons
and Paroles.
quest for a posthumous pardon
ended by saying, "We submit our,
application to you with the same
motivation that impelled the
Georgia Senate to adopt Senate
resolution 423 in its 1982 session:
to finally right an historic injus-
tice by exonerating Leo Frank,
thereby demonstrating that our
legal system can indeed be called
upon to find the ultimate truth
and proclaim it. This case
presents a rare opportunity for us
to obliterate a terrible stain
which history has ascribed to the
Georgia Judicial system because
of the injustice done to Leo
Frank. We should not let this op-
portunity pass. We believe, as we
know you do, if following the
biblical injunction. 'Justice.' Jus-
tice thou shalt pursue."
But will the Parole Board
grant the pardon? Should it? At
best it's no better than an even
bet. The Board would have to
make decisions based on testi-
mony given by people long since
dead save Mr. Mann who is ill. In
doing so, it would again bring
face to face, or at least, story to
story, the relatives and friends of
Leo Frank and family, the rela-
tives and friends of Mary
Phagen, and the relatives and
friends of flame throwing United
States Sen. Thomas Watson.

Leo Frank isn't guilty, someone
else is. The Board may be unan-

Yet who was guilty is not the is-

guilty. Justice demands at least
that question be answered. I
doubt few care to pursue who was

The Real Obstacle to Peace
Community Relations Council
Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County
The Reagan Administration
has taken the position proclaim
ing the West Bank settlements
an obstacle to peace. The theory
goes that if only Israel would
stop building settlements, King
Hussein would likely come to the
negotiating table. The King
would therefore be given the hope
and assurance that Israel intends
to negotiate in good faith. I have
come to the conclusion following
my visit with leaders of the Is-
raeli government, including
Prime Minister Begin and mem-
bers of the opposition party, that
this position is entirely false. The
only question that is worth ask-
ing is whether Jordan is prepared
to negotiate without pre-condi-
King Hussein has made the

West "Bank settlements a pre-
condition to his joining the nego-
tiating process. Much of the pub-
lic believes that Israel must in-
duce the King to join the Camp
David process. Yet, how many

Israeli inducements are enough
(Dayenu) for the King? Were Is-
rael to declare a moratorium on
settlements for six months, the
King would respond why not a
year? Were Israel to completely
stop building settlements, Hus-
sein would probably focus his at-
tention on dividing Jerusalem. In
short, the King's strategy is
never to say Dayenu.
It is clear to me that King
Hussein has consistently fol-
lowed the long-standing Arab
posture of refusing to shoulder on
themselves the burden of finding
a solution. They would rather
delegate this burden to the
United States, to the United Na-
tions, or some other party. It was
only President Sadat who broke
from this position and achieved
peace through direct negotiations
without pre-conditions.
It is unfortunate that Hus-
sein's refusal to negotiate direct-
ly with Israel is accepted by the
world-at-large. The sooner the
United States abandons Hus-
sein's game, the closer will be the
time for Jordan's arrival at the
negotiating table. Progress will
only be made when the United
States demands of King Hussein,
and perhaps more importantly,
Saudi Arabia whose support the
weaker Hussein requires, to drop
all pre-conditions.
The agreement reached at
Camp David demands of all
parties to the conflict that pre-
conditions to the negotiating
process are not acceptable. Israel
has always indicated its readi-
ness to negotiate under this
framework. For the United
States to advance Jordan's pre-
conditions is not in the spirit of
Camp David, which is perhaps
why Prime Minister Begin rejects
the President's peace initiative.
There is still time for the
Palestinian problem on the West
Bank to be solved. Prime M mis-
ter Begin told our group of Com-
munity Relations leaders that the
final result of this problem must
be delayed until after the five
year autonomy period. He stated
that "the term 'non-negotiable'
should never be used (referring to
Judea and Samaria)." He further
clarified that only after the five
year autonomy period would the
parties to the conflict then put
forth their positions. While it is
true that after this period Prune
Minister Begin will likely main-
tain that Judea and Samaria re-
main part of Israel, he nonethe-
less is prepared for other conclu-
At the present moment there is
agreement in Israel to continue
building West Bank settlements.
The disagreement put forth by
the opposition who favors terri-
torial compromise on the West
Bank only concerns the location
of the settlements.
Right now, the United States
and the world seem preoccupied
with pressuring Israel to change
their settlement policy. In my
opinion; these efforts will likely
prove unsuccessful. For progress
to be made, world pressure and
attention must be redirected in
the direction of Jordan. King
Hussein is scheduled to meet
with President Reagan in Wash-
ington later this month. If you
agree with my perspective, please
write our President and let him
know how you feel, at the address

Chafets is a personal friend of
Rabbi Joel Levine of Temple
Judea. When Rabbi Levine
learned that Chafets would be in
the United States for a brief visit,
he arranged this program for
Temple Judea on very short no-
tice. Chafets was responsible for
press coverage and relations
during Operation Peace for Gali-
lee and subsequent events which
-followed. Due to his personal
stature and prestige, he was
granted a "leave of absence to
write a book" by the Israeli gov-

ernment. He plans to give our
community an inside view on
press coverage, a source of deep
controversy, which affected Isra-
el's world image.
Chafets and Rabbi Levine were
students in the first Hebrew class
offered by The University of Mi-
chigan. Chafets served as a na-
tional leader of the Reform Youth
movement. When Joel Levine
continued his Hebrew education
at the Hebrew Union College in
the rabbinic program, William
Chafets made aliyah to Israel.
Chafets became one the few
Americans who successfully rose
as a high official. He is constant-
ly quoted in the Israeli press and
has intimate knowledge of the
workings of the government.
Due to his extremely busy
schedule as well as family com-
mitments, he had to limit his
speaking engagements. Two
weeks after his visit with Temple
Judea, Chafets will return to Je-
rusalem and continue working on
his book which will detail the
press controversy associated
with the war in Lebanon.
For more information, call the
Temple Judea office.
Rabbi Kahane to address
After careful consideration,
Temple Beth Zion has invited
Rabbi Meier Kahane to speak at
one of its lecture nights.
Rabbi Kahane is considered a
political activist and has sub-

United States and Israel. Rabbi
Kahane heads up both the Jewish
Defense League in the United
States and the KACH movement
in Israel. The Theme of his lec-
ture is "Jewish Pride Not Guilt
Jewish Power Not Weakness."
