Israel Embassy in Quito
Hit by Terrorist Bomb
QUITO, Ecuador, -
(JTA) The Israeli
Embassy here was rocked
by a powerful explosion
last week that left
two people dead and a third
seriously wounded. Israeli
Ambassador Eliecer
Armon, who was at work in
his office but escaped
unharmed when the
dynamite charge went off,
denounced the bombing as
a "criminal act which has
caused innocent victims."
. The Embassy was cordoned off
by the national police immediate-
ly after the 10:40 a.m. explosion,
while bomb experts from SIC, the
Ecuadorian security agency, and
Intarpol searched the building for
more explosives.
ACCORDING to eyewitness
reports, a young man entered the
four-story building, in which the
Israeli Embassy occupies the top
floor, carrying a suitcase. On the
third floor, he opened the suitcase
and to the astonishment of the
people who were in the corridor at
the time, he lit several sticks of
dynamite and started to climb
the staircase towards the
Embassy offices.
Raising the alarm, they scared
the terrorist who abandoned the
suitcase and ran downstairs and
into.the street.. In the ensuing
panic, Ambassador Armon and
the rest of the Israeli diplomatic
staff, along with the employees of
several commercial offices, es-
caped from the building.
Two Ecuadorian national civil
policemen, Manuel Gilberto
Jimenez Soto and Vicente
Ramon Jimenez Torres, who were
posted in guard stations of the
building's entrance, ran back into
the building in search of the
dynamite when the first workers
reached the street yelling,
"Bomb, Bomb."
the smoking suitcase on the third
floor and descended to the lobby
in an attempt to throw it out into
the street. The high power
charge, smelling strongly of
sulfur, exploded when they were
15 feet from the door. The impact
killed Jimenez Soto instantly and
seriously wounded his comrade,
Jimenez Torres, and an
unidentified woman passerby in
the street. The second policeman,
Jimenez Torres, died later in the
day at the Military Hospital
while having his legs amputated
in an attempt to save his life.
Antonio Samaranch, presi-
lof the International Olympic
"Tiittee. is unhappy with the
bition of Israel from partici-
*> in the Asian Games, now
way here. But he says he
ands why the ban was
not satisfied, but I am
of the reasons for barring

here Sunday. "Israel is a
I member of the International
Pc Committee and wfll be
i to the Olympic Games in
[.Angeles in 1984 and to the
competition slated for
>. South Korea," Samaranch
He did not specify what
ught the reasons were for

M contest.
HCIALS HERE reaponsi-
tor organizing the Asian
have stated repeatedly
| the problem is security. In
connection they cite the
of Israeli athletes at the
Olympics in Munich by
Palestinian terrorists. But others
have indicated that the real
reason for barring Israel is the
$10 million grant given to India
by Kuwait to help underwrite the
costs of the Asian Games.
Meanwhile, the Olympic flag is
flying from Nehru Stadium in ac-
knowledgement of Samaranch's
presence in India's capital. This
is incongrous because the
Olympic Committee which he
heads has not recognized or ex-
tended patronage to the Asian
Games because Israel was ex-
cluded, in violation of the
Olympic charter. The charter
states specifically that the
organizers of regional games,
such as the Asian Games, must
invite every nation in the region

The Case for the 1983 Campaign
CHALLENGE: How does Federation plan its budget?
RESPONSE: Together Federation volunteers and professional staff. .
1 work and plan to attend to the community's needs. Our Jewish community is
$ growing faster than our services can keep pace. Allocations are the result of
thoughtful study and careful decisions made by the Allocations Committee and
approved by the Board of Directors.
CHALLENGE: How is the Federation dollar allocated?
RESPONSE: The Federation dollar is allocated to more than 48 agencies and
services here at home, across America, in Israel and around the world. Thirty-
. five percent of the dollar stays in this community, 2 percent is sent across
S America, and 63 percent is allocated to Israel and around the world. Each dollar
i touches a wide spectrum of Jewish concerns: Jewish education, health, rescue,
rehabilitation, children, families, parents, singles, college youth, elderly,
emigres, community relations and more.
CHALLENGE: What is meant by Federation's constituent agencies?
RESPONSE: Each Federation constituent agency is self-governed and
autonomous but is the beneficiary of the greatest allocation of Federation's

Member 10'
Oianukah Miracle At Lake Worth
Chaplain Aide Program
She is a diminutive lady,
somewhat younger than her octo-
genarian peers at the nursing
home where she resides. Her
solemn face with tiny features
has a doll-like appearance. She
would smile benignly when ad-
dressed, but that was the extent
of her response. She didn't talk.
Although she agreed to being led
to the various activities, she took
no active part.
As one of the five or six Jewish
residents at the nursing home,
she would attend the occasional
Friday Sabbath services, con-
ducted by Federation's Chaplain
Aide Program. She seemed to en-
joy the services in an impassive
way. One might have guessed
that she was a victim of some de-
gree of senile dementia. She was
put mnized by her fellow residents
and service personnel; treated as
a pet someone to pat on the
head or greet affectionately with-
out expecting a response.
The Chanukah program last
year at the nursing home includ-
ed, among the members of the
Chaplain Aide Program, an ac-
cordionist who played Jewish
songs and lively Israeli dance
music. Chaplain Aides tried to
entice some of the residents to
join in the dancing. They all re-
fused, except one the silent lit-
tle lady. She arose reluctantly,
but soon stepped gracefully in
perfect time to the animated
music. The number over, her
cheeks flushed, her eyes glisten-
ing she sat down, but jumped up
as the music started again. Fear-
ful for her health. "Aides" led her
l>ack to her chair, only to watch
her return and continue dancing.
An Aide stopped her on the floor
and asked whether she was en-
joying herself. To the amazement
of all. she answered vocally,
"Yes." very clearly. This was the
first time in all the years at the
home that she had spoken. And,
she continued to speak and sing.
The self-imposed silence, probab-
ly induced by depression, had
l>een broken by the Chanukah
The Chanukah holiday,
notorious for the miracle of the oil
and dedication to freedom, will be
celebrated this year in sixteen
nursing homes and retirement
centers in Palm Reach. Members
of the Chaplain Aide Program, in
conjunction with the Hornstein
Jewish Community Day School,
will conduct Chanukah parties
for all residents of the institu-
Chanukah candles will be lit
and goodies consumed. There will
lie others in the Palm Beach com
munity, representing synago-
gues, temples, youth groups and
various Jewish organizations
who will be visiting the elderly
during the holiday. The dedica-
tion of these people to freeing for
a moment at least, the institu-
tionalized elderly from the de-
pression of a humdrum existence,
is often rewarded with results
that seem like miracles.
The Federation Chaplain Aide
Program is under the direction of
Rabbi Alan R. Sherman, Chap-
lain for Palm Beach County.
Members of the program visit
hospitals, nursing homes, retire
ment centers and conduct Sab-
bath and Holiday services. Per-
sons interested in visiting the in-
stitutionalized on a one-to-one
basis or wishing to help in con-
ducting services may call the of-
fice of the Chaplain at 832-2120.

Case History
Can a price be put on a human
life? For the people of Israel,
every life is precious, no price too
high. During Operation Peace for
Galilee. Commander Ronnie

of medical ingenuity and courage
on Commander Cohen's part, but
today, Ronnie Cohen can walk

learning to walk." says Ronnie.
I le's determined to make it to the
Hebrew University School of
Agriculture, too, and study there,
"even if I have to walk there."
Ronnie is one of many Israeli
soldiers injured during the cam-
paign in Lebanon, hundreds of
whom will live normal lives

use of multiple conference rooms
is the Care Giver-Care Receiver

Facing a Truism
The grim truth is that nations do not
survive on the basis of fulfilling the in-
terests of others alone. As with individuals,
the self is the starting point, even in
matters of profound love between two
people. The rule is simple: Love yourself
first, or you will never be able to love the
What Israel must be cautious about is
pursuing its inquiry into Shatila and Sabra
with an eye on U .S. public opinion. Sen.
Henry Jackson's view of the matter over
national television recently which
suggested that the inquiry is scoring many
points for Israel on Capitol Hill, should be
beside the point.
Because on Capitol Hill, as in the self-
interested capitals of Europe and in the
hearts of Israel's Arab enemies, the inquiry
merely sustains the growing propagandist -
ic picture of Israel as a racist entity bent on
genocide of the Palestinians. The com-
mission of inquiry is but a surrogate for
Nuremberg doing a suicidal job.
Those who like Israel's silly Attorney
General merely cry, "Damn the torpedoes;
full speed ahead.'' seem to be blind to the
fact that the torpedoes are making full
speed. Right on Jerusalem.
Jews Press Canadians to
Seize Suspected Nazis
TORONTO A Jewish group
here has threatened to make pub-
lic the names of at least 10 men
living in the Toronto area who it
says are Nazi war criminals, un-
less the Government arrests
them within four weeks.
The group, the Canadian Holo-
caust Remembrance Association,
said it was taking the stop be-
cause of its belief that Ottawa
has been lax in tracking down
and punishing Nazi war
criminals. The group contends
that as many as 1,000 of them
live in Canada.
The number of suspected Nazi
war criminals who have sought
haven in Canada is not known.
The West German Government
and Simon Wiesenthal, the
Vienna-based hunter of Nazis,
have put the total at 1,000. But
the Mounties and the Canadian
Jewish Congress say they have
only 75 to 100 names in their

Shoshanna and The Rabbi

Staff Correspondent
JERUSALEM What is an
old age home like in Jerusalem?
It is a living history. Of Israel. Of
Jewish life. Of people who used to
be alone. Who were either willing
to ask for help, or too proud to
ask. Living now at the United
Home for the Aged. People like
Shoshanna and the rabbi.
Shoshanna, past 80, white
haired, white skinned: who could
believe there is such feeling runn-
ing beneath the light blue veins?
She speaks with an intensity
bordering on passion.
"We built this country, we

for Independence, my only son,
my dearest- He fell in the battle
for our holy land, our land

woman, she was a builder. One of
the gates of Mea Shearim is
named after her, The Gate of
Sara from Brisk. And some of the
houses, too, they are called Sara's
"Of course when I was young,
I didn't imagine that in my old
age I would live in an institution
but things don't happen to
you the way you imagine.

wouldn't be alone. But in the end
when I had an attack, there was
nobody to help me.
"Here, there's plenty of help.
Only three weeks ago, on
Shabbat, I had another attack.
The nurse was called right away
and I was taken to the hospital.
It happened to me again, in
synagogue. I got dizzy and they
carried me out in their arms."
We all have "our rabbi." It
doesn't occur to us to ask: who

Endowment Fund Planning
Various Compliance Provisions
of the 1982 Tax Law
Previous issues have discussed
the new withholding require-
ments for interest, dividends, an-
nuities and pension payments.
The purpose of the withholding
provisions is to close the "com-
pliance tax gap" and does not of
itself create any new tax.
There are other provisions,
mostly in the reporting area, and
similarly designed to ensure that
taxpayers will report income and
thus further close the "compli-
ance gap."
One of the more important
amendments is called "backup"
withholding. Starting in 1984 a
withholding rate of IS percent
(rather than 10 percent) is im-
posed on payments to a taxpayer
who has failed to furnish his Tax-
payer I.D. number to the payor,
or with respect to whom IRS has
notified the payor that the num-
ber furnished is incorrect. This
requirement applies to payments
of rents, salaries, wages, commis-
sions, fees, profits or income, in-
cluding payments to independent
contractors, interest, dividends
and payments by brokers.
Presently, payors of interest of
$10 or more must file an informa-
tion return. These current provi-
sions do not apply to interest on
obligations of the U.S. The re-
porting requirements are now ex-
panded to include interest on
U.S. obligations, interest on
bearer bonds, or any other in-
terest payments which IRS
regulations may specify. The re-
porting requirement is placed
upon the entity making the pay-
ment to the ultimate payee, such
as brokers or other financial in-
stitutions. Interest paid by
natural persons is not included in
these new rules, which become ef-
fective for 1983.
Starting with 1963, brokers are
required to file information re-
turns regarding capital gains
transactions. The method used is
the subject of regulations to be
issued by the IRS.
Studies by the Internal
Revenue Service have indicated
that there is a substantial "com-
pliance gap" by taxpayers per-
forming services for a trade or
business. This might apply to
services such as truckers,
painters, electricians and profes-
sional persons. Commencing with
the year 1983, payments of $600
or more made by a trade or busi-
ness receiving the performance of
services are to be reported on an
information return.
Certain salespersons salesper-
sons selling merchandise, such as
door to door salesmen, for exam-
ple, Avon, or in house parties, for
example Tupperware, now, for
1983, must be reported by the
direct seller if the gross pur-
chases of the salesperson are
$5,000 or more.

How Riverside made its name.
It takes years to build a name that is
It takes nearly 70 years of experience
and commitment to Jewish tradition.
L It began with Riverside's founder,
paries Rosenthal. He believed that being a
Jewish funeral director was more than just a
business. It was a very special calling that
demanded absolute integrity, genuine
compassion, true charity and a dedication and
deep involvement in Jewish life.
Today, Charles Rosenthal's beliefs are
Riverside's policies. People like Carl Grossberg,
Alfred Golden, Leo Hack, Andrew Fier and a
new generation of Jewish management are
seeing to it.
At Riverside, we've always tried hard
to be the best. And to us that means no let-up of
effort. No compromising of standards. And no
cutting of service.
That's how Riverside got its name.
That's how we intend to keep it.

Hanukah: Myths, Facts, History, Blessings, All You Need to Know
ALEXANDER the Great had
died, and his great empire was
broken into four kingdoms. There
was war between two of these
kingdoms, Syria and Egypt, and
for almost 100 years, Palestine,
which Served as a land bridge,
was torn between the invading
armies. At last Syria possessed
Palestine, and then there was
peace in the Holy Land. And
then, one day, the whim of a Syr-
ian king destroyed the peace once
and for all. Many years of fight-
ing followed. At last, the great
bravery and heroic courage of our
forefathers, who were ready to
lay down their lives for our faith,
brought victory to the Jewish
people and requited in the glori-
ous festival of Hanukah.
Became King of Syria in 175
B.C.E. He believed he was God
and he determined to destroy the
Jewish religion. He gave orders
forbidding anyone to observe
Jewish ritual laws. His soldiers
looted the Temple in Jerusalem,
and tore down homes. In the
Temple above the altar was
placed a statue of Jupiter
designed to look like Antiochus.
Who was not even a member of
the priestly family, was ap-
pointed High Priest. He was a
man who had no sympathy for
Jewish tradition. When the Tem-
ple treasury did not contain
enough money to pay Antiochus
for his appointment, he sold some
of the holy vessels of the Temple.
On the 25th of Kislev 168 B.C.E.,
he permitted a pig to be sacrificed
in the Holy Temple. This was
more than the Jewish people
could bear.
One day an aged priest in the
little village of Modin rose to defy
the Syrians. Angered by the
sight of a Jew performing a
pagan sacrifice at the order of one
of Antiochus' captains, Mattat-
hias the Hasmonean killed both.
Forced to flee, he escaped to the
hills with his five brave sons.
One of the old man's sons was
called Judah Maccabee. Leading
his brothers and faithful bands of
patriots, he defeated the Syrian
armies. In 165 B.C.E., on the
2.r)th of Kislev, our forefathers
regained the Temple. With a little
cruse of oil they lit the great
Menorah. The oil lasted for eight
days, and today we still light
candles on the Feast of Lights
and we call the festival which cel-
ebrates the triumph of freedom.
After the return of the Jews
from their exile in Babylon, they
succeeded in re-establishing
themselves in Palestine under the
wise leadership of Ezra and Neh-
emiah. Under the rule of the Per-
sians and the later invincible
Greeks led by Alexander the
Great, the Jews were permitted
to live in peace and happiness al-
though subject to foreign rule.
When Alexander died, his empire
was divided and Palestine
became a part of the kingdom of

Canadian Parliament Urges
USSR to Free Sharansky
TORONTO The Canadian
Parliament, by unanimous vote,
has urged the Soviet Union to
free imprisoned activist Anatoly
Sharansky who has been on a
hunger strike since Yom Kippur
in Moscow's Christipol prison.
The Secretary of State for Ex-
ternal Affairs, Charles Lapointe,
called Sharansky's continued in-
carceration a "fundamental de-
nial" of his human rights. He told
Parliament that the Canadian
government has made direct rep-
resentations to the Soviet
authorities to release Sharansky
who was convicted in 1978 for al-
leged espionage and is serving a
13 year sentence.
Before the vote, Flora
MacDonald of the opposition
Progressive Conservative Party,
a former External Affairs Secre-
tary, said the release of
Sharanskv was a condition for
the resumption of the Canadian-
Soviet dialogue abandoned after
the invasion of Afghanistan in
1979. She said this was made
clear to Soviet officials by a
Jewish Film
Canadian delegation presently
visiting Moscow.
TEL AVIV An Israel sol-
dier was killed and two others
were wounded when assailants in
a passing car opened fire on their
jeep about one kilometer north of
Sidon in Lebanon on Friday. The
slain soldier was identified as
Karim Ali Amar. 23, of the Druze
village of Hurfeish, a number of
whose Druze residents have been
killed in the Lebanon war. Amar
had been called up for reserve
duty only three days before his
ascended the throne of Syria and,
urged on by Hellenized Jews, at-
tempted to force the Jews of Pal-
estine to abandon their religion
and language, to accept the
Greek idols and Greek language
instead. When the Jewish people
resisted, Syrian soldiers were
sent to enforce the king's orders
even venturing into the Temple
in Jerusalem to set up idols and
to offer up pagan sacrifices of the
sacred altar. Resistance brought
martyrdom to many Jews includ-
ing the aged sage Eliezer, who
was killed when he refused to eat
swine meat; and the Jewish
woman Hannah who lost her
seven sons rather than urge them
to bow down to Greek idols.
Open revolt against this sav-
agery began in the town of Modin
when an old priest named Mat-
tathias and his five sons broke up
an attempt to enforce idol
sacrifices, and, with the slogan
"Whoever is for the Lord, follow
me!", scattered the king's sol-
diers and then fled to the hills.
Around this family of the Macca-
Im-i's grew up a company of fear-
less patriotic men who waged
guerrilla warfare from the caves
in the mountains. When the aged
Maltathias died leaving leader-
ship to his son Judah Maccabee,
warfare was taken into the open
in a series of successful battles,
culminating with the great victo-
ry of Emmaus. The Syrian armies
were routed. Right had won out
against brute might. The power-
ful kingdom of Syria had to rec-
ognize the independence of the
little state of Judea. The walls of
the city of Jerusalem were re-
paired, the holy Temple was
cleansed and rededicated to the
worship of God, and peace and
order were restored to the land.

It is permissible to perform
regular work on Hanukah.
The major religious observance
consists of lighting the lights of a
Hanukah menorah each night of
the holiday.
The Hanukah menorah is an
eight-branched candelabrum,
with an additional place for the
"service" light. It is designed
either for candles or oil wicks.
The lights are lighted with the
"service" candle or light (called
the Shamash candle). The

Romberg noted that the two
special U.S. envoys in the Middle
East Philip Habib and Morris
Draper have been working
with Israel and Lebanon in an
effort to solve the differences
between them that have been
holding up the negotiations.
THE ISRAELI Cabinet mean-
while dropped its insistence that
the talks be held on a ministerial
level but maintained that the two
as Lebanon wants.
But Israel also insists that the
talks be held in Beirut and Jeru-
salem while Lebanon wants them
in communities along the border.
"The question of holding
negotiations in Jerusalem is
obviously a matter of great sen-
sitivity to all parties concerned,
Romberg said. While Romberg
did not explain what he meant by
sensitivity," he stressed the
U.S. was not taking a position on
this issue. "We hope that all the
remaining problems can be
worked out," he said.

High-ranking sources here
have expressed concern that the
Syrians will give Habib a difficult
time. The Israelis cite the pro-So-
viet orientation of Syrian Presi
dent Hafez Assad's recent
rhetoric as an indication that as-
siduous American diplomatic ef-
forts in recent months have failed
to produce a thaw in relations be-
tween Washington and Damas-
The Israelis also express dis-
may over statements by Assad
and the Syrian Defense Minister
vowing that they will not pull
their own forces out of Lebanon
before the last Israeli soldier has
left that country. Israel has con-
sistently demanded the simul-
taneous pull-out of Israeli and
Syrian forces to be preceded by
the withdrawal of the estimated
7.000 Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization fighters from Leba-
tain, however, that the Syrians
traditionally take a very hard line
at the outset of negotiations for
its phychological impact on pros-
pective negotiating partners, but
later modify their stance. They
recall that diplomatic efforts to
get Syrian and PLO forces out of
Beirut appeared to be hopelessly
bogged down last July and
August, but succeeded in Sep-
tember. That analogy is only par-
tially applicable since Israel was
bombarding west Beirut at the
time. It clearly does not want to
resort to military force at the
present juncture.
Israel's dim view of the Syrian
stance is matched by its disap-
pointment with the strong, per-
sistent negative attitude toward
Israel of President Amin
Gemayel of Lebanon since he
took office after the assassination
of his brother, President-Elect
Bashir Gemayal last September.

I for the first time its inhabi-
can remember, there is a
of real peace in Kibbutz
to on the Lebanese border.

[ Kibbutz Manara's history has
i fraught with PLO shelling,
jsional infiltration of terror-
i and endless nights in bomb
lelters. The isolated Jewish 8et-
tment is surrounded by barbed
and has been patrolled
plainly for years.
I The residents were under the
stant tention of being on a
Irsonal 24 hour alert without
IA trip to Kiryat Shmona, the
: town, was filled with fear,
cially at night. Yoav Ramati,
km on the kibbutz, says, "If I
psolutely had to, I would drive
night, but I had second
oughts about ever taking my
nily with me. Some people here
uldn't even consider going out
night. The kibbutz suffered
Jom this Some people left. They
1st couldn't take the tension we
pre living under."
INow, Manara can feel the
knefits of "Operation Peace for
Vlilee." Nonetheless, the kib-
pu lived with its own personal

i of its members were called up

ured but miraculously, all
I Nissim Mizrachi, 32, was the
ply kjbbutznik serving in a com-
pi unit who also had the respon-
bilities of a family. He moved to
[ianara six years ago from Tel
In his words, he moved "be-
leuse I wanted to live in a place
ihere I was needed. Yes, it waa
pealistic. I wanted to feel that I
helping to strengthen the
orders of my country."
And being from a border kib-
butz, were his feelings as a soldier
any different from those of his
"Everyone fighting was think-
ing the same thing. We wanted to
stay alive. We all felt we were
fighting for home. Everyone
knows what's been going on. We
went with all of our hearts."
Comparing his own war experi-
ences, Nissim continues. "This
was my second war in combat.
Personally, there were differences
this time around. My oldest son
was born during the Yom Kippur
"He was telling people on the
kibbutz that I had gone to kill the
bad people who come to hurt us
during the night. I was thinking
a lot about him because he under-
stood the most. And I was think-
ing about my wife and the other
children. I knew they were in the
shelters day and night for the
first days of the war. There was
no choice.
"We had to do it for ourselves
as well as for the Lebanese:
they're good people and they
want to live in peace with Israel
The PLO brought pain to all ol
Eti recalls the mood and
anguish of the kibbutz.
"Everyone cares if even one
boy goes to the army. Anything
that happens here to one, hap-
pens to all of us. You could feel
the worry and fear here with so
many people fighting. Personal-
ly, I was frantic. ."
Nissim is relaxed, surrounded
by his family of four children and
the two teenagers from problem
families they are adopting. "No, I
don't think I was really changed
by the war. I'm the same."
He laughs when Eti says, "But
you have changed." She explains.
"His family means even more to
him now. I feel we're all more
deeply in his heart. I feel life
means more to him now."
Life also means a great deal
more to 20-year-old Yoram
Benita who is happily and
healthily back at work in the ap-
ple orchards. Four months ago he
wondered if he'd ever see those
orchards again.
One of the first soldiers to en-
ter the PLO-infested refugee
camp of Rashidiya, outside of
Tyre, Yoram was shot in the
shoulder by a boy no more than
14 years old during house-to-
house combat. "I saw him and
then I was hit. Naturally, by in-
stinct, I shot back, but I don't
know what happened to him. We
were all shocked seeing kids like
that ready to fire their Bazookas
at us. It was something we never
imagined or could have expected.
Who would think of anyone using
kids that way?"
After dragging himself to safe-
ty, he was jolted by bullets hit
ting the ground around his leg;
while he was attempting to apply
first aid to his arm.
Having no other option, he en-
tered a building and suprised two
terrorists. Fortunately, he was
able to hold them off until two of >
his fellow soldiers arrived. He'
was flown immediately to Ram-
bam Hospital in Haifa.
Yoram pauses. He is having!

they would like to contribute to

with representation involving the

the college was represented by

Professor Bottosto. It was agreed
not only to make a formal presen-
tation of the books, but to include
the subject of the Holocaust in
some of the history courses of the
college curriculum. Inasmuch as
five million non-Jews as well as
six million Jews were destroyed,
it is felt that the student popula-

that involved the entire commu-

Administration on his earlier
meeting with PLO officials in
Paris, "The PLO representative
in Washington was contacted

BUT THE report fell short of
stating that U.S. officials made
the contact. The Reagan
Administration recently denied
an assertion in the Israeli press
that U.S. officials were holding
indirect contacts with the PLO
through representatives of
certain Arab countries.
Meanwhile. Egypt and the
PLO took another step toward a
rapprochement between them, as
Foreign Minister Ali met with a
visiting PLO delegation Monday.
Ahmed Dajani, whe headed the
PLO delegation, told reporters
following the meeting that Yasir
Arafat was planning a visit to
Egypt as part of a tour of several
Arab states. But he said no date
had been set.
PRESIDENT Hosni Mubarak,
however, in an interview
published in the Kuwaiti journal
Al-Siyassu was quoted by Mena
as saying that if Arafat wanted
to come to Cairo, "He should
bring with him a scenario for a
Middle East peace settlement
that 1 could take to America."
Mubarak will visit Washington
in January. The President also
rejected out-of-hand any future
PLO effort to establish a
Palestinian broadcasting station
in Cairo, saying that "we will not
allow any party to mount broad-
casting campaigns in Cairo
against anyone else."

Italy since 1945.
In a letter to his fellow Social-
ist, Bettino Raxi, secretary of the
Italian Socialist Party, Kreisky
noted that Reder is presently
detained at Gaeta prison under
"conditional liberty" and has
only a little more than two years
of his sentence to serve.
Kreisky said the Austrian gov-
ernment made an official request
to the Italian authorities last
March to allow Reder to return to
Austria. He appealed also on hu-
manitarian grounds, citing
Reder's illness and physical disa-
bilities. He suffers from arterio-
sclerosis and one forearm and
most of his stomach have been
removed by surgery.

Presses Should Avoid Printing PhD Dissertations
American Immigrants in Is-
rael: Social Identities and
Change. By Kevin Avruch.
Chicago: University of
Chicago Press, 1981. 241
Jewish Floridian Book Editor
Most publishers, including
university presses, are reluctant
to accept PhD dissertations in
order to make books out of them.
For some reason which defies
comprehension, the University of
Chicago Press, a generally well-
regarded university publisher,
chose to overcome this reluctance
and brought out American Immi-
grants in Israel.
The result proves that one
should not ignore a good princi-
ple. In this instance, the excep-
tion does not prove the rule. On
the contrary, the book is so bad
as to confirm the rule and to
make you wonder what on earth
persuaded this reputable pub-
ishsr to violate the rule.
WHAT IS particularly frus-
rating about the book is that the
subject is an interesting one. We
would like to know what hap-
i>ened to those few American
.lews who decided to settle in Is-
rael. But, if you expect to find out
by reading this book, forget it.
The few kernels of information
vhich the author offers are so
deeply buried in complicated
jargon and convoluted language
as to make it well nigh impossible
>.o dig them out.
What we have here is a good
explanation of why PhD dis-
sertations make bad books. The
trappings of scholarship are
overwhelming. Footnotes, statis-
tics, quotations, foreign words
and tables are all designed for the
doctoral candidate to impress
professors, but they simply
/V press the usual reader.
What is even worse, however,
are the arcane language and ob-
scure references. For example,

of American Jewry. They tend to
be young, female, single, ob-
servant and well-educated, both
secularly and Jewishly.
"the omnibus, Tylorean concep-
tion?" As an anthropologist, I
happen to know that Avruch is
referring to the 1871 definition of
culture by the British anthro-
pologist, E. B. Tylor. But this is
hardly a piece of information that
ought to be required if the reader
just wants to find out how
American Jews fare if they immi-
grate to Israel.
MAYBE ONLY those who
possess this piece of information! new immigrant in
should attempt to read the book, the beauracracy.
But alas, even they will find it
tough-going. For example, while
1 know about Tylor, 1 had a hard
time with the following sentence:
"A hyperinvestment in ethnic
identity, leading to the inten-
sification of this identity in rela-
tion to a total social identity, can
thus be described as the primor-
dialization of a social identity."
Talk about gobbled ly-gook.
With effort, one can glean that
from 1950 to 1975, about 45,000
American Jews moved to Israel.
It is not clear how many returned
to the United States. Estimates
vary from 15,000 to 33,000. The
15,000 immigrants are not typical
The system for encouraging
American Jews to immigrate and
for receiving them in Israel is
confused, unreliable, bureau-
cratic, politicized and disorgan-
ized. Acquiring personal influ-
ence (proteksia) and learning to
use it is very important for the

likely to make a successful ad-

commitment to Zionism.

Americans who move to Israel
attempt to make Israel over in
the image of a modern state.
However, one reason for immi-

from all that is wrong with
modern conditions in America.
The paradox with which the
author leaves us, then, is this: to

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Supermarket With That Special Feeling
On October 12,1982 the largest
independently owned supermar-
ket in Palm Beach County
opened for business. The Village
Market is located at Haverhill
and Okeecobee Boulevard in
West Palm Beach.
Ira Feder and his partner Al
Bakst are the guiding forces be-
hind this new venture. For Feder
it's been a long pull. Feder owns
the kosher Century Market on
Okeechobee Boulevard. For 26
years he has enabled the area's
Jewish population to continue
their way of life in an alien ter-
rain. Now at 46, his success with
Century Market has enabled him
to take the next big step for
lovers of Jewish food, the first
Jewish-oriented full-service
Feder began his career at 13
when he helped out in his father's
Bronx butcher shop. Two years
later the family moved to Miami
Beach and Ira assisted his grand-
father at one of the first kosher
meat markets in the area. By 19,
Feder was manager of a super-
market, the kosher Food Fair in
Miami. But the urge to be his
own boss impelled him to give up
his secure job for the chancey un-
dertaking of opening a kosher
market in West Palm Beach. He
had been invited to do so by
Rabbi Landman of Temple Beth
El. The rest is history, history
linked with the growth of a
vibrant community.
The new Village Market will be
a general supermarket, with a
distinctly Jewish flavor. "We'll
be able to carry many brands of
Jewish packaged groceries,"
Feder says, "not just one or two.
Over 800 feet of Jewish, kosher
and Israeli food." But to insure a
wide appeal, the Village Market
will be similar to other markets in
its ranee of products. Items
found at other area markets can
be found at the Village Market.
Al Bakst is in charge of pre-
pared foods at the Village Mar-
ket. Bakst also comes to Palm
Beach County from Miami.
Bakst is the restauranteur who
founded the highly regarded
Bakst Catering in Miami, and
owned the famous 5-star "Tut-
tles" in the Charter Club there.
Al jokingly blames his son Andy
for his short lived retirement and
return to "the business." Andy, a
graduate of the Culinary Insti-
tute of America, will be working
alongside his father as he over-
sees the food preparation for the
Village Market Restaurant. They
are serving breakfast; lunch and
dinner and there is a catering
service. Bakst has brought Chef
"Paco" Franciso Cruz to the res-
taurant, from the Epicure in
Al and Ira's goal for the V*
lage Market is to provide the
community with a store that re-
flects their wants and needs
favorite products and brand
names at competitive prices, in a
warm friendly atmosphere. "The t
large chain stores lost their per-
sonal touch," says Al Bakst,
"they lost their feeling for people.
Our aim here is to keep that per-
sonal touch and always stay
aware of what the people want."
The Village Market is striving to
be that store with that special

Jewish Girl Scouts
Receive Lehavah Awards
On Friday evening, Nov. 19,
six Jewish Junior Girl Scouts,
members of Palm Glades Girl
Scout Council and Temple Beth
David, were honored during
family services for their success-
ful completion of the Lehavah
Award Program. Congratula-
tions are in order for Laura
Siegal, Cynthia Falk, Bonnie
Falk. Michelle Goldberg, Elaine
Goldberg and Laurel Mayer, all
residents of Palm Beach Gardens
who received recognition for
earning the Lehavah Awards.
The program, written for Jewish
Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts
under 12 years of age, is one of
the many programs made availa-
ble to Girl Scouts of all religions.
It provides girls with the opport-
unity to become better members
of the Jewish faith and to estab-
lish a more meaningful, personal
understanding of their religious
background and beliefs.
Consultants Rabbi William
Marder, Milton Kurland, and Co-
ordinator Carol Mayer adminis-
tered and helped the girls meet
requirements of this special Girl
Scout Jewish Award Program.
Girl growth developed through
participation in various activities
focused on family relations and
heritage, the functions of the
Rabbi and individuality pertain-
ing to Judiasm.
As it is written in the Lehavah
Award Program Guide, "It is our
hope that as the Girl Scout-Girl
Guide explores this new world,
she will come to relize that she is
Lehavah, the flame which will
keep Girl Scouts-Girl Guides a
vital part of their community and
their country."

proposed by the Lebanese gov-
ernment which were brought here
from Beirut by U.S. special Am-
bassador Philip Habib last
Thursday. The compromise over
the level of the talks was pro-
posed by Premier Menachem Be-
gin after 10 of his Cabinet min-
isters balked at demands by De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
that Israel adhere to its original
They were backed by Chief of
Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan who at-
tended a Cabinet session. He ob-
served that Israel had won all of
its wars militarily, and this time
it should reap the political gains.
Had that been the case in the
past, the political situation would
be much different. Eitan said.
The compromise agreed to was
seen here as meeting the Leban-
ese halfway. Beirut, however, has
already announced the appoint-
ment of a Brigadier General to
head its negotiating team, which
would also contain some ranking
civilians. Habib suggested, at his
meetings here last Thursday that
the talks be held outside the two
capitals, in places such as Halde,
just south of Beirut, and Maale
Hahamisha, a kibbutz near Jeru-
reflecting the Lebanese position
on venue.
Habib arrived in Cairo Sunday
for talks with Egyptian leaders.
He was in Amman Saturday to
meet with King Hussein of Jor-
dan about recent Middle East de-
velopments and the status of
peace efforts in the region. U.S.
Embassy sources in Amman said
President Reagan's Mideast ini-
tiative and the Arab peace plan
adopted at Fez, Morroco figured
prominently in the talks. They
also discussed Hussein's schedu-
led visit to Washington next
month, the sources said.
The U.S. sources stressed that
Habib did not meet with Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
chief Yasir Arafat who also
arrived in Amman Sunday to see
Hussein. Reagan's plan, an-
nounced last Sept. 1. proposed
that the West Bank and Gaza
Strip be governed by Palestin-
ians in association with Jordan.
Arab participation in negotia-
tions over the plan appears to
hinge on whether Arafat will
agree that Hussein serve as
spokesman for Palestinian in-
terests in negotiations with Israel
and the U.S.
BUT THE PLO's Central
Council, a 60-member consulta-
tive group issued a statement in
Damascus Thursday night de-
nouncing the Reagan plan for
Palestinian self-rule because it
specifically rejected a Palestinian
state on the West Bank and Gaza
Strip. The PLO group claimed
the American position does not
"satisfy the inalienable national
rights of our people." But it did
not say the Reagan plan was un-
acceptable in its entirety, as the
most extreme elements of the
PLO inist.

Yet parents (and even grand-

might save a life or a throat or a

Don't panic.

dead wrong.
Immediately, get out any-

A Holiday to be Celebrated In Its Own Right
Coordinated by
Rabbi Alan R. Sherman
This year the 25th day of
Kislev begins at sundown on Fri-
day, Dec. 10 when we will kindle
the first Chanukah candle.
Imagine that; Chanukah is early!
And when on the eve of the
eighth day all the candles in oui
menorahs are aglow it will be one
whole week before Christmas!!
Chanukah, the Feast of Lights,
the eight day celebration of the
first battle ever fought for reli-
gious freedom, this year may be
celebrated in its own right.
What will those Jews do this
year who in past years have put
their wreathes on the door and
their electrified menorahs in their
windows? Will the Chanukah
bush be taken down when the
Feast of Lights has ended, or will
it remain standing for another
week or two in observance, I sup-
pose, of the Festive Season.
With Chanukah concluded a
whole week before, how will those
Jewish parents explain their chil-
dren's gifts usually presented on
Christmas Day when it falls dur-
ing Chanukah: "Oh here's a gift
we forgot to give you during
Chanukah, dear. Do open it to-
day!" Perhaps in another home
the approach may be: "Remem-
ber the Chanukah present we had
to exchange? Well, here it is in
the right size, all gift wrapped,
just for you today!"
It never ceases to amaze me to
what extent some otherwise in-
telligent Jewish parents will go to
make their children (sic!) feel
more comfortable and more ac-
ceptable in their non-Jewish en-
virons during the Season of the
I recall an engineer who so des-
perately wanted his home to be
like everyone else's on the block,
he electrified and set in motion a
spinning, klinking musical
dreidle in his front yard. It was
an ambitious project that cost
him much time and money.
In another Jewish home I en-
tered years ago in a small South-
ern town, there was a white plas-
tic tree decorated with blue glass
balls and blue lights. I will never
forget the look of absolute em-
barrassment on the face of the
little girl whose father, grinning
with utter satisfaction of his ef-
fors, asked me how I liked their
Chanukah Bush!
Those who try so hard to as-
similate our faith and heritage
Rabbi Edward L. Cohen
with others rites and symbols
during this Season, seem to me to
miss the message of Chanukah
completely. The Macabbees led
our people in revolt against those
who by force attempted to as-
similate us into adapting their
ways. For several years the battle
was waged. And when at last our
ancestors were victorious against
the Hellenists, our freedom was
secured, and our religious rights
How much more meaningful
this season would be if our chil-
dren could experience the real
value of that religious freedom
taught in the Chanukah story.
Were we to utilize our own sym-
bols and establish our own rites
within our homes how much we
would offer our children. Were we
to give gifts to our children al-
lowing them to know we do so be-
cause we love them, it would no
longer necessitate the gift-giving
from "the jolly old elf." And just
imagine the loving warmth of a
family together lighting the
1 Chanukah menorah and singing
Maotzur before the gifts.
I know a family who for years
invited their non-Jewish neigh-
bors to their home for the first
night of Chanukah. Their neigh-
bors helped them kindle the first
light, sang "Rock of Ages," ate
latkes and brought Chanukah
presents to their Jewish friends.
On Christmas Eve, the neighbors
invited their Jewish friends to
their home to have dinner and
help decorate their tree. The Jew-
ish family brought Christmas
presents to place under their
friends' tree.
In respecting each other's holi-
days, there was no need to cele-
brate them as their very own. In
relating the Chanukah story the
lesson of history became clear:
had it not been for the victory of
the Macabbees, there never could
have been a Christmas 167 years
How fortunate that we live in a
land where religious freedom is
respected. How wonderful an op-
portunity we have to teach our
children the values of religious
differences in a pluralistic society
such as ours. And how much
more then are we to be grateful
for when Chanukah can be cele-
brated for its own merit in its
own eight days.
This year, if you haven't be-
fore, try a little honesty and in-
tegrity with yourself and your
family. See what a joyful experi-
ence Chanukah can be without
the trappings of Christmas
under whatever guise in your
home. Tell the age old story,
shower your family with love
as well as presents and have a
Happy Chanukah!

Lesher said with a smile. "Seri-
ously, the Palm Beach County
Campaign and campaigns around
the country are undertaking a
special cash collection to reach
the $6 billion mark in December;
which is the month that Sam
Rothberg is retiring after forty
years of dedicated service to the
State of Israel."
The $6 billion mark represents
| total cash proceeds for Israel's
economic development since the
inception of the Bond Organiza-
tion in 1951.
"This intensive effort to
convert all unpaid Bond commit-
ments into cash for Israel is being
undertaken to assure that
urgently needed Bond dollars will
help offset the effect of the war
with Lebanon," Lesher said. He
added that the proceeds from
these unpaid commitments are
needed to begin a new era of
industrial and agricultural devel-
opment in the Galilee, now free of
terrorist attack, and to continue
expanding the economic infras-
tructure in the Negev.

eight days, families celebrate the
Feast of Lights by kindling

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Likud Ml< Threatened
After Calling for Inquiry Group to Quit
A Likud member of
Knesset who publicly called
for the resignation of the
commission of inquiry into
the Beirut camps mas-
sacres after the commission
sent warning notices to
Premier Menachem Begin
and eight other senior offi-
cers, has been sharply up-
braided by Attorney Gen-
eral Yitzhak Zamir.
Zamir called MK Yitzhak Zey-
ger's statement a "prima facie
act that requires a police criminal
investigation." But the MK's
parliamentary immunity pre-
vents this.
Zeyger, a member of the Liber-
al Party wing of Likud, argued in
his statement that the Cabinet
and its ministers were not subject
to the jurisdiction of the commis-
sion which was part of the judi-
cial branch of the government
and could not therefore pass
judgement on the executive
branch. In addition to Begin,
warnings were sent to Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon and For-
eign Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
BUT ZAMIR and other top
academic lawyers flatly rebutted
Zeyger's assertions. Some of
them maintained that Zeyger
plainly fails to understand the
basic nature of a judicial commis-
sion of inquiry. A commission,
these jurists pointed out, is not
part of the judiciary, but a sui
generis institution, set up bv the
government itself under statute
to conduct an objective inquiry
into an issue which the govern-
ment determines to be worthy of
such inquiry because of its public
interest and importance.
Zeyger's statement, according
to Zamir, was an apparent of-
fence against the sub judice law
which forbids the publication of
anything calculated to influence a
commission of inquiry in its
Several of the men formally
warned by the commission last
week that they "may be harmed"
by its findings have been seeking
legal advice in preparation for re-
buttal efforts.
BEGIN, however, has let it be
known that he will probably not
avail himself of the statutory
right now offered to all nine men
to reappear before the commis-
sion, to review all relevant
material pertaining to them-
selves, to cross-examine wit-
nesses and to adduce evidence
and witnesses of their own to
strengthen their own cases.
The sources close to Begin
point out that the commission
plainly accepted his version of
the facts pertaining to himself:
that he knew nothing of the mas-
sacre while it was in progress
since none of the reports that did
come in were relayed to him.
BEGIN MUST answer for
what may be adjudged a lapse or
failure of judgement. He is not in
the position of having to buttress
his own testimony in the face of
contradictory testimony
another witness.
Beyond the Premier's decision
on how to handle the commis-
sion's formal letter of warning,
the sources close to him stress
that he will demand early elec-
tions if the commission in its
findings attribute any negligence
or wrong doing whatever to him.
These sources say Begin is con-
fident and would be returned
with an increased majority.
Neutral observers say there is
a certain validity in this ap-
proach, in terms of pure princi-
ples of democracy. They doubt,
though, whether the majority of
the electorate would in fact re-
store Begin to power if he were
faulted by this prestigious
inquiry commission. Some ob-
servers contend that a political
