is Campaign Cabinet and their
workers for a final effort in
rinding up the 1979 campaign.
"The month of May is crucial

an help put us over the top in
fur intensive efforts to help those
our brothers and sisters less
Drtunate than ourselves."
Michael A. Blank, a local
attorney, has accepted the
chairmanship for the Phone-A-
Thon which will continue through
this month. During this time all
prospects will be called for their
commitment. Blank has or-
ganized his workers and commit-
tee and expressed confidence that
people will respond when asked.
"We cannot afford the luxury of
letting down," Blank said. "The
daily headlines constantly
remind us that although men of
good will talk about peace, there
are still elements who would
destroy us. We know that we will

Major Saad Haddad. the com-

Ilodding Carter said he had seen
reports of the "creation of some
independent buffer state" in
Lebanon. "Without knowing the
reality whether that state is more
than a P.R. (public relations)
statement or whether it has come
into existence or not, our general
policy is that we would oppose
anything which threatens the
territorial integrity of Lebanon or
which would have the effect of
subdividing it or impeding the
extension of I^ebanese authority
throughout the land." Carter
This development came as a

That coupled with face-to-face
visits by our key workers to their
prospects will mean more help for
more people. Israel and the local

maximum effort.

for volunteers who are willing to
help in making calls. "I stated

Site for New Facility
On Sunday, May 27, the
Jewish Community Day School
will dedicate the site for its new
school on Haverhill Road, south
of 45th Street. The portion of the
site is a part of the Federation-
owned Gladstone tract, acquired
by the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County as a result of the
generosity of the family of the
late Fred Gladstone.

a three-acre tract of land. The

Barry Krischer, president of
the JCDS, in announcing plans
for the dedication, expressed his
gratitude for' the wholehearted
support ot the Federation, its
Executive Board and Site
Planning Committee. "I know of
very few communities in which a
day school has enjoyed such fine
cooperation. The fact that the
community sees the need of a day

significant. We hope that the

Many of the speakers pointed
to the link between the Holocaust
and Israel. Yehuda Blum, Israel's
Ambassador to the UN, who
celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in the
Bergen-Belsen concentration

the Stale of Israel" is important
not only because it is the realiza-

also because it includes a "vow"
that "Jewish blood will no longer

Florida's Federations Meet
There is no doubt about it. The rapid rate of
growth of the State of Florida is little short of
phenomenal. Time was when we thought of the
Jewish community as being situated in a complex
cluster along the southeastern shore of the state.
But a gathering in Orlando last weekend of the
executives and professionals of nine Jewish
federations throughout Florida, joined by their lay
leadership, indicates that as the state grows, so
grows the Jewish community.
Fact is, we can no longer speak of a single
Jewish community cluster. The nine federations at
the Orlando planning conference represented a whole
new series of growing Jewish communities ranging
from the southeast coast to the north and west of
What the federation leaders met to do was to
determine the need for a program of interchange of
ideas from all the communities involved on problems
common to all of them Jewish education, the aged,
youth, integration of Soviet Jews.
There is no doubt that this input can be of
benefit to all of the Jewish communities of Florida as
they meet the challenges of growth and the com-
plexities of a highly-detailed Jewish civic, philan-
thropic and traditional consciousness.
Independence Day, 1979
Israel will be celebrating its Independence Day
May 2 in an atmosphere completely different from
that which previously marked this day. For the first
time in its 31-year history, the State of Israel has a
peace treaty with one of its Arab neighbors, Egypt.
Independence Day will indeed mark the begin-
ning of a month of momentous events which will be
highlighted by meetings between Prime Minister
Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat at Beersheba and El Arish. This month also
marks the opening of the borders between Israel and
Egypt, an event that may result in benefits yet
Israel will not forget the price in lives it has paid
to reach this point. In fact, the day before Indepen-
dence Day is always observed as Memorial Day to
pay tribute to Israel's fallen soldiers.
A STRATEGY reportedly
attributed to National Security
Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski
defines the new Middle East
detente in terms of three circles of
concentric escalation. The first is
the one just concluded: wringing
the lifeblood out of Israel through
radical amputation of the Sinai
and the achievement of an accord
with Egypt.
The second circle is the one for
which Israel is now preparing:
negotiations over the autonomy
question, which she will be bound
to lose, thus returning Israel to
her essentially pre-1967 borders.
This will bring Egypt back into
the good graces of the other Arab
nations, except perhaps for the
moat recalcitrant of the con-
frontation states, which no longer
will be able to claim that Egypt
betrayed Araby.
THE SECOND circle also
includes the reestablishment of
U.S. preeminence in the Middle
East as a benevolent supporter of
pan-Arab interests, with a dis-
membered Israel as prima facie
evidence that Washington no
longer'supports the Zionist state
The third and last circle of the
so-called Brzezinski strategy is
by far the most complex. It
focuses on the Soviet Union. The
Muscovites have had no role in
the new "peace treaty" as a con-
sequence of a bungling diplomacy
of which they are not often
guilty: losing the game by
playing so flamboyant a hand
that they were invited to leave
the table, or at least not invited
back to it after intermission.
Now, therefore, or so the third
of the concentric circles in the
strategy alleges, an adjustment
must be made in the Soviets'
favor to soothe their wounds for
having wanted and failed to win
everything their way at another
Geneva. In the end. or so the
strategy alleges, there can be no

peace in the Middle East without
Soviet approval.
BESIDES, when Israel finally
loses the autonomy negotiations,
she will be in exactly the same
position that the Kremlin had in
mind for her in the first place.
The Kremlin will have won, even
if the Kremlin will not be
acknowledged as the winner. It is
American friendship with Israel
that will have succeeded in
reducing Israel to a shadow of
herself, not the Draconian
honesty of frank Russian anti-
Zionism. The results will be the
same Israel victimized.
But, of course, it makes a vast
difference as to who can claim
credit for the achievement. The
Soviets know that, in this, they
have lost a major round, but we
mustn't rub it in. And anyway,
they are by no means ready to
concede the game There are
other tricks ahead, and it is these
that Brzezinski has in mind.
For example, when Israel
finally loses the autonomy
struggle, that does not neces-
sarily mean the triumph of Yasir
Arafat (PLO) or George Habash
(PFLP), both of whom Egypt's
Anwar Sadat fears and despises
as much as do the Israelis.
THIS MAY be good enough
reason for, say, the State Depart-
ment to seek alternate solutions
to the "Palestine problem,"
particularly because their
principal clients want one. But
neither Arafat nor Habash nor
any of their prototypes will give
up just because Egypt and Israel
can not be counted on to deal
with them. At the
same time Moscow may be
depended upon to make sure that
they do not give up precisely
because they suit neither party to
the "new peace," nor the U.S.,
The struggle in Lebanon
today, with the thinly disguised
Syrian pro-Soviet role in it,
attests to that. So do the
escalating PLO terrorist forays
into Israel from Jordan, whose
King Hussein for a third time
since the 1967 war is choosing the
wrong side with which to align
Then there is Iraq, different
from, say, Libya, but which one
also finds it hard to conceive of as
ever accepting the Brzezinski-de-
signed Middle East detente no
matter how miniscule Israel is
made as a consequence of it. The
part Moscow will play in this
grand refusal is no insignificant
AND FINALLY, if only to
mention a third condition of
Middle Eastern reapotitik to
match Brzezinski's own three
concentric circles, the political
realignment in Saudi Arabia
today anticipates one of the
west's greatest fears: a revo-
lution in that country along the
lines of the revolution in Iran.
While Iran's large and power-
ful middle class created a vacuum
against Marxist enterprise into
which the Khomeini religious
forces could burst to seize the
reins of power, no such middle
class exists in Saudi Arabia, and
therefore no such immunity
against a Marxist takeover.
To forestall a possibility

Director, Middle Eastern

ASIDE FROM Sadat's sense
of the economic benefits to his
country by virtue of peace with
Israel, fear of Soviet ex-
pansionism in the region served
as the major catalyst toward
Egyptian-Israeli reconciliation.
Israel had been warning for
some time of the threat to pro-
Western regimes from the
Soviets; it took developments in
Ethiopia, South Yemen, and
Afghanistan to persuade Sadat
that he no longer could afford the
luxury of the struggle against
Jim Hoagland of the
Washington Post put the Soviet
factor in proper perspective in an
analysis of the Camp David
meetings (Sept. 24): "In a
metaphorical sense, the Russian
Menace occupied the fourth chair
at Camp David." Sadat had
opted for full cooperation with
the United States, including
movement toward normalization
of relations with Israel, to place
his country under the protection
of the American, anti-Soviet
And indeed, in the intervening
months since Camp David, it is
evident that Sadat continued to
see the Soviet and SovieUbacked
threat in the region as a major
element in the signing of the
treaty. His requests for massive
military aid from the U.S. are
predicated on that threat and on
Egypt's potential role in the area
BUT IT was not only the
Egyptian reaction to the Soviets
that was perceived as a force for
peace with Israel; officials of the
Carter Administration following
Camp David pointed to the
Soviet factor as the key to the
Saudis and Jordanians joining
the process. Faced with the
Sadat or abandoning him for the
radical camp of Syria-Iraq-Libya
with Soviet backing, Jordan and
Saudi Arabia would surely
choose the moderate path.
The Iranian revolution,
however, produced startling
developments. The inability or
unwillingness of the U.S. to save
the Shah raised doubts in the
minds of Saudi leadership as to
the reliability of their American
friend. If the trend in the region
were to be a radical trend, seemed
to reason the Saudis, then we
ought not to distance ourselves
too much from those factors.
Hence the Saudi leadership
responded coolly to Secretary of
Defense Brown's offer of a U.S.
military presence in the area;
hence Prince Fahd called off a
visit to the U.S.; and reports
circulated that the Saudis were
toying with the idea of
establishing relations with the
Soviet Union.
The double-message: 1) The
Soviet menace has acted and will
act as a force toward moderate
Arab-Israeli reconciliation; and,
2) Saudi reaction to the
revolution in Iran indicates
possible pacification of, not
alliance against, the Soviet-
backed radical forces in the
Middle East.
Finally, the Israeli people and
representatives see a double-
message in the autonomy plan for
the West Bank and Gaza.
FROM THE perspective of the
government, this plan was an
attempt to find a functional
solution to the problem of the
West Bank, inasmuch as the
Arabs have repeatedly rejected
Labor's territorial compromise
proposal, the Allon plan. It also
was intended to leave open the
question of sovereignty of the
area for five years, and to prevent
the rise of a Palestinian state
through Israeli veto over the
form autonomy takes.
Many Israelis, however, fear
that autonomy could very readily
lx' transformed by the Arabs into
the dreaded Palestinian State.
What would prevent the self
governing authority from
declaring itself a state? How
could Israel offset the growing
demand for full Palestinian self
determination once the process is
set in motion?
Increasingly, there is an
awareness in Israel that
autonomy, which has often been
attacked by the Arab world is an
example of Begin's alleged
"intransigence," carries with it
the seeds of a PLO victory. The
need to monitor autonomy* at
every level, to establish
modalities which will indeed
grant self-rule but will assure an
Israeli military presence becomes
crucial. The resolution of the
West Bank problem, whether as
an area of Arab-Jewish
cooperation endangering no one,
or as a base for the PLO en-
dangering the stability of Israel,
Jordan, and the whole region, has
yet to be determined.
The double-message: U
Autonomy as self-rule for the
Arabs and security for the Jews;
and, 2) Autonomy as the seed of a
PLO state.
IT CAN only be the hope ol
Israel and all friends of Israel
that the positive sides of these
double-messages come to pass:
that Sadat will indeed make real
the treaty with Israel irrespective
of the decisions of Arab rejec-
tionists; that the U.S. aa a "full j,
partner" will function as a
constructive factor to encourage
reasonable solutions; that
pragmatism will triumph over
extremist Islamic ideology tnai
moderates in the area will
coalesce against radical ex-
pansionism rather than to seek
the counterproductive path of

IPalm Beach County Mission Delegation
Director of Publk Relations
While people around the
world watched the historic
signing of the Peace Treaty
between Egypt and Israel
on March 26, 18 represen-
tatives of the Palm Beach
County Jewish community
took part in a massive cele-
bration in Tel Aviv, Israel.
When Dr. Richard Shugarman,
Associate Campaign Chariman,
and James B. Baer, South
County Campaign Chairman, co-
leaders of the Mission sponsored
by the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, planned their trip,
they had no idea that the treaty
would be signed while they were
there. (This was not the first time
this type of coincidence occurred.
In November 1977, the first
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County community mission wit-
nessed Anwar Sadat's un-
precedented visit to Israel.) Most
of the 18 participants were "first
timers" and found the trip to be
an eye-opening experience.
"My most lasting impression
of the State of Israel was the
nationalism and devotion of its
citizens .," stated Richard P.
Zaretsky, a local attorney. "Our
mission taught me that Israel has
problems that all nations ex-
perience, but because of its
advanced technology and small
size, such treasures as flocks of
immigrants create a special prob-
lem specifically the cost and
time needed to train the im-
migrants to fit into the Israeli
society. The immigration
problem is not new to Israel. Our
mission brought us to areas of
the country settled by im-
migrants 20 years ago. These
same areas, although beautiful in
their exterior, house difficult and
recurring social problems and
overcrowding. The country, with
the help of the United Jewish
Appeal and other agencies, is
trying to alleviate these
problems ..."
"WE HAD a common goal and
it was fulfilled by being together
. .," said Dr. Peter Wunsh. "We
were all excited and thrilled at
the prospect of being in Israel"
(at the time of the treaty
signing). "We spoke with the
people of Yamit (a settlement
town on the Mediterranean
border of the Sinai) who have to
give up their homes. These people
are very much affected by the
peace treaty, and yet in talking to
a soldier he commented that he
would rather give up Yamit than
have to fight the Egyptians
Norman Stone, a stockbroker
from Boca Raton, felt that the
peace treaty was being better
received by the younger Israelis
as opposed to the middle-aged
and the elderly "who have
suffered through several wars
and don't seem to believe that
this will amount to anything but
a beautiful gesture on the part of
Egypt. Our visit to Yamit at the
base of the Sinai was very
emotional for me. I had been
there l'/ years ago when Sadat
made his first trip to Israel. At
that time I became friendly with
the woman who runs the restau-
rant at Yamit. Her name is Carol
Rosenblatt from Miami. She
came there as a divorcee with two
young children, planning to live
the rest of her life there. In the
past she has been vehemently
opposed to the peace treaty
signing if Yamit and other settle-
ments of its type had to be given
back. But her feelings in the last
three or four days had changed,
and she stated that if she had to
give up this life at Yamit, she
would go for the sake of peace."
James Baer, co-leader of the
mission, noted, "It was very
exciting to be in Israel and to
reaffirm my own belief in our ties
with the people of Israel;
however, it was most thrilling to
the members of the Mission
. UlbliJ

who had never been to Israel
come alive, become involved and
participate." During a briefing
with Gen. Avraham Orley, we
were informed that the danger
still exists in Israel and that the
Israeli forces must be retained
and even enlarged. The recent
attack by the PLO is a perfect
example that the problem still
exists. While the money we
donate does not go toward
defense, it does allow the Israelis
to use their own dollars to help
protect themselves. The growth
of the campaign in the South
County area is a measure of our
commitment, and we only hope
that this will continue in the
Dr. Richard Shugarman, co-
leader of the mission, said: "We
visited the moshav and a town in
the Sinai, both of which will
become part of Egypt in the next
three years. We shared the bitter
disappointment of these people
who risked their lives and their
careers to found these settle-
ments and defend Israel's bor-
ders, only to be told that they
must leave and return inside
Israel. It's one thing to talk
objectively about settlements
and how to handle them, but it is
quite another thing to deal face to
face with those human beings
whose lives are involved first-
the real value of
is in the making of
contacts between
and Israeli Jews. We
American Jews suddenly realize
that being Jewish doesn't mean
living in a certain neighborhood
or belonging to a certain Temple
or going to a certain country
club, but that there is a univer-
sality of Judaism which makes us
all brothers regardless of our skin
color, educational background,
nationality or whatever,"
Shugarman concluded.

Reward for Info About Amin
TEL AVIV (JTA) A reward for information
leading to the arrest of deposed President Idi Amin of
Uganda was offered by the family of Dora Bloch. The
elderly British-Israeli woman was killed in Kampala,
Uganda, after an Israeli commando team freed more than
100 hostages July 3, 1976, including dozens of Israelis
who were being held by Palestinian terrorists at Entebbe
Airport after they hijacked an Air France airliner.
IN LONDON, British MP Grevflle Janner, a close

Remember The Holocaust Lessons
Should we teach our children
the grim, and not so pleasant,
story of the Holocaust? This past
week we observed Yom Hashoa
(Holocaust Day). These past
months we have lived scenes of
massacre in Southeast Asia and
in Iran. Our newspapers have
featured pictures of shiploads of
refugees. They are, reminiscent of
three decades ago, being turned
away from havens of refuge. Is it
not therefore appropriate that we
insure that every Jewish child
indeed every child be taught
the lessons of that terrible time
so that we might hope that Holo-
causts will not be repeated with
any people any place on this
The pin that one receives on
visiting Yad Va Shem contains
the one pointed word Zachor. Re-
member at the very least our
children should know the im-
portant facts.
In five short years between
1941 and 1945. the German state
led by Adolph Hitler murdered
six million Jews in Europe. Ever
since that terrible time, people all
over the world have struggled to
Jewish Education
out of the ashes of the crema-
toria. All this and more is in-
volved in remembering the
events of the Holocaust.
Recounting the final solution
of the Holocaust is not a pleasant
Mordecai Levow
understand: How could it have
happened? How could a modern
state destroy innocent men,
women, and children just because
they were Jews? How could so
many people allow themselves to
be killed? How could the modern
world let this mass murder take
easy answer. World War II tore
Europe apart and left deep scars
on all those who survived it. Over
35 million were killed, more than
in any previous war. Two-thirds
of all the Jews in Europe died.
These are facts. History will
always remember them but not
fully understand them.
Part of this story is the tragic
struggle of the Jews in Europe, to
work together and give strength
to one another, whatever their
final terrible fate. Part of this
story is the remembrance of the
Tzadikei Umot Haolam, the
righteous of many nations, whose
hereoism saved thousands of
Jews. Part of this story is the
emergence of the state of Israel

RABBI RONE also comes to
I led ford prison to help celebrate
most .Jewish holidays. Editor
Schneider said he presided at a
Seder in the prison last Passover.
The rabbi is not at the prison for
the Sabbath, but he makes
candles available for the women
who want to go to the chaplain's
office on Friday afternoons to
light them.
He also provides memorial
candles. The Bet Torah cantor
visits the prison to lead a weekly
evening discussion with the
women prisoners on Jewish
The visits, the candlelighting
and the holiday celebrations take
place in the small chaplain's
office or at a slightly larger at-
tached office which is part of the
prison chaplaincy facilities.
Karen Ramos, 36, described
the impact of prison life on a
Jewish woman who, Schneider
suggested, probably would not be
in the prison were it not for the
state's severe drug law. Ms.
I tamos said there was a "tre-
mendous culture shock" in
coming to the prison society,
adding she had known Blacks
"on the outside" but "never in
such numbers."
SHE SAID that "when Blacks
began to talk to me about slavery
and white oppression, I tried to
explain my position as a Jew"
and that "I consider Jews op-
pressed people," a stance which
apparently had little effect on the
anti-Semitic stereotypes of her
Black fellow-inmates.
She works in the prison law
library and was instrumental in
setting up the Committee
Against Life for Drugs, ex-
plaining she intended to make
law reform her career both in
prison and after she gets out.
Madeleine Pinetta, 36, has
been serving since 1970 a 25-year
- to life term as a first offender
accused of "owning and selling
cocaine," a charge Schneider said
she denied, adding that, at most,
she was only a facilitator in
allowing her home to be used in a
cocaine sale but that she could
not say anything in court to save
herself from conviction.
She wears a small gold Mogen
David on a chain around her neck
despite prison rules that jewelry
must be hidden under a shirt.
ONE OF the painful anxieties
of the women prisoners who are
mothers is what to do about their
children. When Madeleine was
first imprisoned, her baby was
two months old; her daughter,
one year; and her son, four. After
her husband deserted her, her
mother began caring for the
Lack of privacy hurts, the
prisoners said. Shari, 25, con-
victed of conspiracy to murder
and later released on parole, was
so terrified by the prison at-
mosphere that she managed for
ten months to stay in the hospital
Schneider reported "total
agreement'' among the Jewish
prisoners on the problems they
face in an overwhelmingly Black
aiul Christian atmosphere "If
jon are a Jew in jail, you're
treated worse by the guards
and by the prisoners. They think
that if you are Jewish you must
have money, and you mustthink
miii are better" than the other
prisoners. Southern Israelite
A personal view from the

(All case names mentioned in

strictest of confidence.)
In my previous two articles, I
touched upon problem marriage

center upon the mature marital
Dr. Peter Martin has offered a
typology which concludes with a
description of the normal mar-
riage, which I for one, personally
delight in. To illustrate:
"Visualize in your mind's eye
driving down a city street on a
hot summer's day with the sun
beating down on you. Suddenly,
you look to the side and see a
street with a row of trees on each
side whose branches and leaves
form an arch which makes a
sheltered, cool, peaceful, shady
lane. The trees also give shade to
the sidewalks and houses chil-
dren can be seen playing in this
peaceful setting. The trees on
each side are deeply rooted in the
soil, sturdy and upright in their
growth, and in forming the arch
together, create something which
neither tree could do alone.
Underneath the earth, their roots
may be intertwined."
UNLIKE the other marital
patterns previously discussed,
where only one tree may stand
upright, or as in the case of the
"parasitic" pattern both
"trees" are strewn about as if
demolished in a hurricane in
the "normal" relationship there
is uprightness, strength and the
ability to shade and nurture. The
deep roots denote a strong sense
of identity and feelings of
strength. A strong arch is formed
by the boughs of both trees. Love

The individual's capacity in six
areas largely determines whether
or not he / she is capable of con-
tributing to the formation of a
strong arch:
1) Capacity for independence
2) Capacity for supportiveness
3) Capacity to accept support
4) Capacity for lust
5) Capacity for sensuousness
6) Capacity for love
As is true for every case I have
ever dealt with; there are varying
degrees to which the above-men-
tioned capacities are executed by
people. The job of the familv
counselor is to help individual;-
develop their potentials, so thai
an arch and a bond which is both
secure and cool is formed.
