National Cash Chairman
ard Borine stated that "This
sive effort will examine un-
I pledges for 1982 and earlier
to our Regular Campaigns, the
Israel Special Fund and Project

can't rest on our accomplish-

throughout the world, and in
answer to those who would be
pleased to see us fall short of our
goals, we must intensify our ef-
forts to see that services are
maintained, at least at the
minimum level that has been
promised by our pledges."
Palm Beach County has agreed
to participate in the program,
and has accepted the minimum
goal for the four-month period of
$525,000. To date. Palm Beach
County has collected $250,000 for

that any such United States

The resolution urged the 1,000

that the UOJCA program in this

Challenge and Response
| The Case for the 1983 Campaign
Challenges: What are some of the challenges in our local community
! that must be met through the 1983 Jewish Federation campaign?
Response: Jewish education is one of the major challenges in this
community. Your 1983 Federation campaign dollars will help educate
our Jewish youth at the Jewish Community Day School and the
Midrasha-Judaica High School. These schools provide a quality learning
environment to enhance the study of Jewish heritage.
Response: The needs of the elderly are a community challenge that
must be met through the 1983 Federation campaign. Dollars are needed
for programs which assist the elderly in our community including the
Chaplain Aide Program, the JCC's Comprehensive Senior Service
Center, the Jewish Family and Children's Service Geriatric Quick
Response Program and the Jewish Home for the Aged now under

Jewwh Family and Children's Service recently moved Into new
fen at 2250 Palm Beach Lake. Blvd., Suite 104, West Palm
V The JFftCS, through Its staff of professionally trained
""tors, offers a varied program of services to the community.
Response: The challenge of Jewish community relations is directed
toward enhancement of social conditions conducive to secure and
creative Jewish living. The Community Relations Council of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach County, through its Local Concerns Task
Force, seeks to promote equality of opportunity, without regard to race,
religion, ancestry or sex; to secure freedom of thought, opinion and
association; to insure freedom of religion and separation of church and
state; and to encourage amicable relationships between all groups. Your
donation to the 1983 Jewish Federation and campaign helps meet this

Case History
Hannah Agree lives in Harbin,
a city of two million people in
northeast China. Hannah, in fact,
is the last Jew in Harbin. She is
only one of a handful of Jews in
the entire country. Once there
were 10,000 Jews in Harbin.
Most of them, like Hannah's
parents, came from the Soviet
Union. Hannah was born in
Harbin, but it has not been easy
for her. During the Cultural
Revolution, the Red Guards
stoned her as they did all foreign-
ers and only her age tempered
their response. For the past 36
years, Hannah has lived! in the

Super Sunday-83
Countdown Begins For UJA Third
Annual National Super Sunday
less than two months remaining
before United Jewish Appeal's
third annual National Super Sun-
day on Jan. 23, 1983, (Feb. 6 in
Palm Beach County, see box),
planning is moving into high
gear, according to Jerome J
Dick, UJA Super Sunday nation-
al chairman.
On Super Sunday '83, which
marks the opening of the "public
phase" of the 1983 UJA-commu-
nity campaign in many areas,
volunteers all over the United
States will make tens of thous-
ands of telephone calls in an at-
tempt to reach as many Jewish
households as possible and seek
their commitments to the Regu-
lar Campaign and Israel Special
"Super Sunday '82 was a huge
success," said Dick, a UJA na-
tional vice chairman who was al-
so chairman of the first two na-
tional phonathona. "More than
35,000 volunteers in 139 U.S.
communities raised almost $26.9
million to meet Jewish needs in
Israel, around the world and in
their own communities. That was
a record amount for a one-day
mass appeal.
"Our goal for Super Sunday
'83," he continued, "is to involve
160 communities and raise $30
million to reach more people
and raise more money in a single
day than ever before. Our goals
are higher because Jewish needs
are greater. Super Sunday this
year will seek crucial additional
pledges to the Israel Special
Fund to help the Jewish Agency

maintain vital humanitarian and
educational programs endanger-
ed by the enormous economic
impact of 'Operation Peace for
Galilee.' "
With such a mandate, in addi-
tion to the record demands of the
Regular Campaign, Dick said,
"Super Sunday represents a
challenge and an opportunity
of historic proportions."
Among the event's attractive
and proven campaign benefits,
Dick indicated, is its effective-
ness in reaching out to potential
new volunteers and new givers
and in creating community-wide
Although most communities
are holding Super Sunday on the
Jan. 23 national date, some have
scheduled the event for other
dates, depending on their own in-
dividual campaign calendars.
Super Sunday Changes to Feb. 6
Marilyn and Arnold Lampert, Super Sunday '83 co-chairmen,
have announced that the date lor Super Sunday has been
changed from Jan. 23 to Feb. 6,1983. Super Sunday is the com-
munity-wide phonathon to contact more households ami ream
more dollars on a single day in the Palm Beach County Jewish
community for the 1983 Jewish Federation-United Jewish
Appeal campaign.
Historically, explained the Lamperts, Super Sunday wa* held
a week prior to the Super Bowl because no football games were
played on that day. As a result of the NFL strike this year, the
football schedule has been rearranged. la an effort not to inter-
fere with people attending games or watching them on TV, the
Campaign Cabinet and the Super Sunday committee decided to
change the date to Feb. 6, one week after the Super Bowl game.
The day will consist of carloads
of kids from various youth
groups meeting at the JCC in the
morning. Each car will go from
place to place to help preassigned
households. At the end of the
day, a supper party will be held
so that the youths will have the
opportunity to socialize with new
friends made that day.
According to Sherri Mittledorf,
adult co-ordinator for the Jewish
Community Youth Council,
"Mitzva Day" will have a dual
purpose. It will be the Youth
Council's contribution to sup
porting Super Sunday '83 and it
will also provide interaction
among the various members of
the youth groups and non-
affiliated Jewish youth through-
out Palm Beach County. Mittle-
dorf concluded, "The Jewish
youth of the city are banding to-
gether in support of the needs of
the community and Israel. Please
encourage them by supporting
their efforts."
The Jewish Community Youth
Council presently consists of
adult advisors and youth repre-
sentatives from Jewish youth
groups of the following: Temple
Beth David USY, Temple Beth
El USY, Temple Beth Torah
SAFTY, Temple Israel SEFTY,
Temple Judea SEFTY, Young
Judea and other individuals in
the community and is coordi-
nated by the Jewish Community
Center. Anyone interested in

Jewish Self-Criticism
In the spirit of Chanukah, the 30th
World Zionist Congress is meeting in Israel
now, and reports from Jerusalem show just
how unsettled Jews are today. Largely,
there is the uncomfortable feeling that the
Israeli operation in Lebanon has exposed
them to criticism from other nations of the
world for their seemingly uncritical support
of the Jewish state.
Whether or not Israel deserves
criticism for its campaign in Lebanon is a
question we have talked about in these
columns frequently in the past. Our single
consideration now is rather to observe with
growing embarrassment just how uncom-
fortable Jews are and that this discomfort
apparently lies like a pall over the agenda
of the World Zionist Congress in Jeru-
This is a pity. Predominantly, for
example, it gives strength of heart to the
Reagan Administration as it stand deter-
mined to persuade Congress not to increase
United States military and economic aid to
Israel beyond the $2.5 billion
We do not suggest that the President
and his aides would be persuaded very
much to change their mind were the atmos-
phere in Jerusalem different. It more
probably is true that nobody on Capitol
Hill really cares about the deliberations in
Jerusalem one way or the other. And that
there is not too much concern for just how
American Jews feel about the Administra-
tion's anti-Israel actions these days either.
But the fact is that the timidity of
heart Jews feel about Israel and Lebanon
will be used against them as a bottom line
argument when the Administration finds
need for one at some future time. On that
certainty, we can bet.
None of this means that Jews, like
anyone else, do not have the right to dis-
sent. Rabbi Alexander Schindler, of the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations,
said as much in Denver this week before a
Reform Jewish gathering. He argued that
Jews who dissent are not guilty of treason
either. There is no doubt that he is correct,
but that to have raised the question of
treason was an unfortunately excessive
example of zeal one which may bite all
our backs someday by those bent on mis-
chief against us.
Chaplain Aide Program
A kind, compassionate lad>
enthralls the hearts of the elderly
every Friday afternoon, as she
sings songs and chants the
Shabbat service at nursing
homes and retirement centers for
the Federation Chaplain Aide
Program. Any statements one
may honestly make about Ilse
Mollen, the lyric soprano or Ilse
Mollen, the person will sound like
hyperbole of the first order.
The story of Use's experiences
and her work, has many of the
earmarks of "sound of music"
drama, irony, frustrated ambi-
tions and eventual realization of
many of her dreams. The saga
begins in a little town of
Goeppingen, outside of Stut-
tgart, Germany when six year old
Ilse and her eight year old broth-
er were acclaimed by the congre-
gation for their duet during the
High Holy Days. "At that
moment," Ilse recalls, "I decided
that I wanted to be a soprano
soloist some day."
Encouraged by her parents,
both of whom came from a back-
ground filled with music and
musicians, (her father's uncle was
a "heldentenor," who was
knighted by King Wilhelm of
Wuerttenberg for his operatic
performances), Ilse devoted her-
self to the study of musk for
many years. At last, her big
debut! She was selected as
"soloist" with her choir on radio
in celebration of 100 years of
emancipation of the Jews in
Wuerttenberg. The enthusiastic
critical notices in the newspapers
are still among her most che-
rished memorabilia.
Ironically, it was not long after
the celebration of "100 years of
emancipation" that her soaring
career was interrupted by the
repressive measures of Hitler.
Ilse had to confine her concert
and operatic work within the
Jewish communities. She
traveled to the large cities
Berlin, Mannheim, Stuttgart,
where all-Jewish orchestras were
hastily organized.
In 1938, married and sensing
that the Nazi situation was
worsening, with the help of her
older brother, an engineer in
America, she procured a visa to
emigrate in August. However,
faithful to her professional obli-
gations, she had decided to stay
through November to complete
her concert bookings for the Jew-
Use Molten
ish Cultural Society of Stuttgart.
Ilse describes November 9, the
infamous Kristalnacht," "the
cruel, senseless burning of all
synagogues, homes, businesses
my own home completely
ruined, furniture, carpets, paint-
ings, all art pieces." Her husband
managed to escape to Holland
and Ilse followed him there two
weeks later from where they emi-
grated to the United States.
Undaunted by her shattering
experiences at the hands of the
Nazis, Ilse picked up her profes-
sional singing career in the
U.S.A. Through the "Musicians
Emergency Fund" she found
work on radio programs, operet-
tas, Broadway musicals includ-
ing a solo in the Radio City Eas-
ter Program. Then, settled in
New Rochelle, New York, she
traveled to New Jersey for 16
years to sing as soloist at Temple
B'nai Abram, working with Can-
tor Abraham Shapiro, the cele-
brated Rabbi Dr. Joachim Prinz
and the great Jewish composer
and conductor Max Helfman.
Uses husband, Jack Reis
never recovered from his Nazi
experiences and passed away.
Use's devotion to the synagogue
and friendship with Rabbi Wein-
berger at Anshe Sholom, New
Rochelle, led to her marriage to

perhaps even can not not in a
literate sense anyway. Neverthe-
less, his attitudes are straight out
of Ralph Waldo Emerson.
In Emerson's essay on "Self-
Reliance," he writes: "Society
everywhere is in conspiracy
against the manhood of every one
of its members. Society is a joint-
stock company, in which the
members agree, for the better
securing of his bread to each
shareholder, to surrender the
liberty and culture of the eater.
The virtue in most request is con-
formity. Self-reliance is its aver-
WHAT EMERSON says here
is that, if we attempt to guaran-
tee the greatest good of the
greatest number, a principle de-
nned by his British counterpart,
Jeremy Bentham, then we are in
fact giving up our right to free-
dom of personal choice and ac-
This is a notion that artists
have always understood. That is
why they have traditionally
starved or feasted, depending
upon whether they were ignored
or adulated. There was) never an
in-between for them, a pandering

to bourgeois principles in order to
get along until success struck
them. For the right to the free-
dom of personal choice, they have
always been willing to suiter the
consequences of failure.
Philosophers are in the same
tradition as artists. Both are in-
dependent of mind at the same
time that neither embarks on a
oractical livelihood. They reject,
therefore, what Emerson des-
pised in "conformity." But while
artists have tended to uphold the
so-called majesty of the poverty
of their roots, even romanticizing
them as, say, Charles Dickens
did, this is what Emerson had to
say about poverty:
"THEN AGAIN, do not tell
me, as a good man did today, of
my obligation to put all poor men
in good situations. Are they my

philanthropist, that I grudge the

This program encompassed so
much more than studying and
learning. High School in Israel
helped me to strengthen my iden-
tity as a Jew, to know where I
came from and where I am going,
and to realize what is important
to me in my life. For many, the
High School in Israel opened up a
love for Israel and a proud feeling
for being Jewish. I have always
had a strong love for
Israel and been proud of being
Jewish. This past sum-
mer has given me something
more. It has enforced my love
and pride, but it has also enabled
me to grow as a person. The
feelings that were shared this
summer cannot compare to any
feelings I've ever felt before.

Thatcher Refuses to See
Arab League Delegation
LONDON (JTA) The refusal by Prime Minister
largaret Thatcher to receive a leading PLO official has
bused the postponement, for a second time, of a visit to
Iritain by an Arab League delegation led by King Hassan
I Morocco.
The king was here last week with the seven-member

embers of the United Nations Security Council.
THE DELEGATION has already seen President

kports that the Queen, still smarting over being discourt-

me. We visited the Western Wall
many different times. We were
there along with thousands of
other Jews on the eve of Tisha
Ba'av. We also held the most
beautiful and touching Shabbat
service together as a group there.
Part of our last night in Israel
was spent beside the Wall, which
was very significant to all of us.
Before I left for Israel, I was
told many things about the High
School in Israel Program. People
told me, "It will be the greatest
experience of your life," and "I
can't explain it, but you will love
When I first arrived and for a
couple of weeks, I had no idea of
what these people were talking
about. All I kept thinking was
that I could be at the beach or
playing tennis, instead of sitting
in a class in the middle of the
desert or climbing a mountain
with the sun beating down on my
head. It took a while to realize
how much I actually learned from
that class, and how good I felt
when I reached the top of that
In my group there were about
sixty people. We were divided
into three classes with excellent
teachers, who became our friends.
We had classes in a classroom
three days a week. The other
days we went on tiulim, which are
field trips. Every other weekend
was free. On my free weekends I
stayed with very close friends,
the Nadels. By living with an
Israeli family, I was able to really
know how it feels to live in Israel.
High School in Israel planned the
weekends that weren't free. Our
first and last weekends were
spent on campus. One weekend
was spent in Jerusalem. It was
during these weekends that
friendships developed and
became strong.
As for my future with Israel, I
plan to spend my Junior year of
college there. I also plan to make
Aliyah as soon aa I can. We all
know the United States is a great
country to live in. However,
Israel is also a great country
which needs me much more. I feel
that I need Israel and Israel is
where I belong. Life is harder
there, I know, but it is all worth-
while, because Israel is home-
It is impossible for me to ex-
plain all of the experiences that
affected me throughout the sum-
mer. When the time came for us
to go back, I didn't want to leave.
My love for Israel and what it
stands for had grown even
stronger and the relationshipa
that had formed were very
special. The knowledge, under-
standing, pride and love I gained
this summer at the High School
in Israel are worth much more
than words can express. I hope
everyone who reads this can get
an idea of what I experienced,
and if possible, should visit Israel
as much as he can. Israel needs
young people to help her survive.
Every Jew owes it to himself to
make the trip and support the
country that unites all Jews and
contains our history in its soil.

In recognition of its courag-
eous work for the world's
Prisoners of Conscience who are
mercilessly tortured, Amnesty
International has been the recipi-
ent of the Nobel Peace Prize. In
the name of numanity, your sup-
port is urgently needed now.
Worse than the evils that
Amnesty International uncovers,
would be indifference to it.

In case you havn't heard: Is-
rael now sells perfume to the
French, beer to the Germans,
chocolate to the Swiss, and tulips
to the Dutch. This, while they are
creating an agricultural miracle
in the Negev desert, showing a
hungry world how new irrigation
and growing techniques can turn
sterile, arid land into a winter
vegetable basket for Europe. Is-
raeli scientists are growing won-
der crops with hitherto ususable
salty water in areas once called
uninhabitable. They share their
research with needy, developing
nations. Israel is also achieving
wonders in solar energy, bio-
medical research, making water
run uphill (the Dead Sea Canal
Project, to provide needed
energy), etc. In Israel, if you be-
lieve in miracles, you are a realist.
On the home front: A resur-
gence of the Klan in our society is
growing in strength and belli-
gerence. The threat they pose is
deadly serious. They boast
thousands of members, including
children whom they train to "kill
Jews and niggers in the coming
race war." One Klan leader
stated: "I'm not going to hang
up my robe until the last Jew is
deported to Palestine or exe-
cuted." That this happens in
America, should fill us with dis-
gust and outrage. When any so-
ciety begins to lose its mind,
minorities stand to lose their
lives. Americans of good will
should combat this evil.
Only nine-tenths of one percent
profits have been contributed by
the corporate sector in 1980,
when five percent was allowable,
to compensate for cuts in Federal
funding for essential human
services. This is a devastatingly
low response from corporate re-
Our tax system still allows
major corporations to pay vir-
tually no taxes at all. Thirty-
three companies with United
States earnings in excess of 100
million dollars, paid no Federal
taxes in 1981. When one segment
of society is not paying its fair
share of taxes, it means the rest
of us have to carry the load. Citi-
zen pressure is the answer to re-
ducing the number of tax prefer-
ences, which also results in bil-
lions lost to the U.S. Treasury
which could be put to good use
for needed human services.

There were, he advised at the
time, oodles of positions availa-

had to do was not to be so picky
and take any single one of them.
It was merely a matter of pride
and of self-reliance.
Statistics have shown, since
Mr. Reagan first delivered this
sermon from his mount, that the
way in which Administration
spokesmen read these classified
columns yields a spuriously op-
timistic view of an otherwise dis-
mal employment picture.
No matter the President
long before that delivered what
he believed to be his most scath-
ing attack upon his critics when
he charged them with endlessly
waving before him the dismal un-
employment figures in "South

IT WOULD be hard to say just
to witness it today. After all,
characteristic of Emerson's life
was growth. It was in search of
what Ralph Waldo Emerson
would think of Mr. Reagan's
views of self-reliance were he here
growth that Emerson traveled all
the way across the Atlantic to
visit the German poet and
philospher, Goethe.
Although like Emerson,
Goethe too was an elitist, his
work suggests that he would not
in the end agree with Emerson's
belief that one's "manhood" is
compromised by concern for the
poor, a view that may well have
affected Emerson for the cosmo-
politan better.
Perhaps then there is a more
apt parallel for President Reagan
in another "artist" who is also
gone from today's scene, but
whom he knew personally and
well. When John Wayne, with
blazing guns in his hands, would
give the emergency command to
"circle the wagons," he was in ef-
fect playing the role of self-reli-
ance against the "Injun" guerril-
las of his day.
ARE THEY my poor?, he asks
with Emerson in each of those
films he made, shooting his way
out of the menacing cries of the
victims of poverty and persecu-
tion. For their part, the attacking
"Injuns" see the wagon trains as
nothing less than invaders, and
they engage in battle in the name
of political, social and economic
justice. In prevailing against the
"Injuns," is Wayne not also
shooting his way out of the re-
sponsibility for the needs of
"sots" and "fools"?
Mr. Reagan and John Wayne
were contemporaries and col-
leagues. They were, as manv
Americans still are, bridges be-
tween the present and our na-
tional past, when manifest des-
tiny depended upon Emersonian
self-reliance, a philosophical prin-
ciple also espoused by Teddy
Roosevelt as late as the first
decade of the 20th Century.
In this sense, Mr. Reagan's
economic realities are not as dis-

Mayor Refuses to Recall
Ousted Jewish Professors
BONN (JTA) The university authorities in Kiel
have been taken to task by Mayor Karl Heinz Luckhardt
of that north German city and by the Social Democratic
parliamentary faction of Schleswig Holstein for
refusing to establish a foundation in the names of former
professors, most of them Jews, who were ousted from
their jobs during the Nazi era.
THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS called the university
position "an alarming manifestation of disregard for the
fate" of Nazi victims.
The idea for the foundation originated with students
who did research on the Nazi era in Kiel. Their report
noted that the city and the university in particular, were
among the earliest strongholds of Nazism in Germany.
They proposed the establishment of a post-graduate
scholarship on the Nazi era to be awarded once every five
lieve. But in matters of the past.
how far past is not the issue, just
as in matter of death how long
dead (except for the first brief
moments of death) is largely, say,
a bureaucratic or an academic
WHEN THE Wayne-Rea
ganites refuse to grow, what does
that say of them? It is fruitless
for Mr. Reagan to believe he can
resurrect the pre-FDRooseveltian
order. No matter how much he
believes that things ought to be
the way they once were, for
example, transcendental New
England or the Far West of John
Wayne, the practicalities of Real-
politik suggest they are not that
way anymore.
This retrograde streak in the
elitism of Mr. Reagan, an aristo-
cratic manner to which he was
not born, merely offends other
nations and fires a profound dis-
pleasure in our own.
Whether it is ratified Emerson
or crude Reagan one considers,
the question of self-reliance in
1982 is the stuff of which future
revolutions are right now being

Rabbi's Message
The Free Synagogue, Boca Raton
I share with you a story which
illustrates that wisdom, then as
now, can save the day. There is a
laughing anger, and we call it wit.
There is a laughing wisdom, and
we call it humor. And there is
blended of the two, a laughing
banter, which we call satire. The
Jew lived and survived by these
gifts from on-high. Even now, wit
is the best safety valve modern
man has evolved; the more civili-
zation, the more repression and
tension, and the more need there
is for wit (or even laughing at
The use of the Hanukah dray-
del (svivon) was also a maneuver
to insure Jewish (religious) sur-
vival. The Hanukah draydel,
saved the day. Says the poet:
"Stronger than the giant still are
tongues that gently speak.
Nothing will malice kill like
tender and wise words and meek.
Here is such a story:
Rabbi Simon Schreiber, the
learned Rabbi of Krakow, son oi
the renowned "Chassam
Sopher," was also a member of
the Austrian Parliament, and
was once invited by the late
Emperor Franz Josef to visit him
at the palace on a Sabbath after-
noon. The Emperor handed the
Rabbi a cigar, which the Rabbi
was naturally obliged to accept.
On account of the Sabbath
customs whereon Orthodox Jews
don't light any fire on that day,
the Rabbi kept it unlighted in his
Graf von Pfuffendorf, a noto-
rious anti-Semite who also
happened to be present, thought
he saw an opportunity of em-
barrassing the Rabbi. He soon lit
a match, and approached the
Rabbi, saying, "I know you are
accustomed to smoking, Rabbi;
will you not have a light?"
"No, thank you," answered the
Rabbi. "Perhaps," said von
Pfuffendorf, maliciously, "the
Emperor's cigar is not good
enough: His Majesty will then
order some better ones."
At this remark the Emperor
himself (danced up with surprise.
There was only one way out for
Rabbi Schreiber, to follow the
advice of David, who said, "I will
also speak of Thy testimonies,
before kings and not be
ashamed," and tell the Emperor
that it was the Sabbath, and that
it was forbidden to smoke But
the Rabbi did not wish to raise
the Sabbath law as an excuse, as
it would imply that the Emperor
had been lacking in tact by of-
fering a cigar to a Rabbi on the
Sabbath. Rabbi Schreiber, there-
fore, turned to Graf von Pfuf-
fendorf, and said, "My dear
honorable Graf, would you think
it right for me to let Hia
Majesty's present to me vanish
in smoke?" and putting it away
in his pocket very reverently, he
said, "I will keep it for an ever-
lasting remembrance."
At this neat parry, the good
Emperor Franz Josef smiled,
"and confusion covered Hainan's
face," or rather von Pfuffen-
dorf's, who scowled at Rabbi
Schreiber, without any ready

individual worth rests largely
upon her ability to be a good wife.
When a man beats his wife, he is
making an explicit statement
about his belief in her ability to
be a good wife. The husband
blames the wife for the beating,
as if it were her fault for his rage.
This pattern reinforces the wife's
Anything can lead to violence
sexual jealousy, money, ex-
pectations about domestic work
and children are just a few. Many
altercations may appear trivial or
insignificant but the violence
must be considered in terms of
the relationship between the
husband and wife. Couples
usually argue over the same issue
during their marriage. The
husband does not like the wife's
opinions, actions or beliefs during
a verbal confrontation and
quickly responds to such chal-
lenges with force. The husband
feels threatened regarding his au-
thority, power and control and re-
establishes his dominance by
physical force.
Unfortunately, family
therapists have come across too
many of these situations in their
work. Whenever possible the
therapist will try to involve the
husband in counseling and save
the marriage. It's essential that
he see his role in maintaining the
violence. If this fails, the
therapist must help the wife get
away from the husband. In other
words, It's quite likely that he
will become physcially violent
again; and one never knows how
abusive the next attack might be.
Such concerns as fear of
loneliness, insecurity about the
future, and a belief that the
husband will change must be
dealt with in therapy. These
emotional factors can easily sway
the wife back into a dangerous
situation. Fortunately, the com-
munity has responded to some of
the needs of the abused spouse,
i.e., housing, legal help, counsel-
ing. The therapist should become
aware of these supports so that
the wife can begin to look ahead
instead of going back to what
must be a living nightmare.
