According to the constitution of CKJA,
seventy percent of all general campaign
funds received must be forwarded to the
United Jewish Appeal for allocation. Monies
received which have been designated for a
specific purpose, such as Project Renewal
and Operation Moses, are sent directly to
the UJA and are not included in the general
campaign total.

A portion of the remaining funds are
used for operating expenses which include
the many activities sponsored by CKJA com—
mittees such as Camp Shalom, Speakers Bureau,
the Forum, Interact, Shalom Lexington, etc.

Finally, even pre—dating CKJA's exist—
ence, come the allocations to ”other chari—
ties”. These allocations represent our

‘mmunity's participation in the welfare of
.e local community as well as the American
and world Jewish communities.

Several years ago, in an attempt to more
clearly define the areas of our responsibi—
lity and concern, the committee divided all
requests into five broad categories: Preser—
vation of Jewish & Judaic Learning, Welfare,
Medical Social Action, and Jewish & Israeli

This year's Budget & Allocation Committee,
chaired by Evelyn Geller, examined the multi—
tude of requests and, with some adjustments
made by the CKJA board, arrived at the list
presented below. As always the decisions
were made after intense discussion by the
committee and the board. Serving with Ms.
Geller on the Budget & Allocations Committee
were Martin Barr, Vinnie Dubilier, Steve
Gall, Alvin Goldman, Leonard Lerner, Judy
Levine, Erle Levy, Stan Rose, and Ricki

The Washington Mission

The Washington Mission, deemed a major
success by the leadership of CKJA, allowed
Jewish leaders from Lexington and Louis—
ville to meet their lawmakers and decision—
makers in Washington.

The trip also had a side advantage as
the Lexington delegation was joined on the
plane and in Washington by a delegation of
leaders from Louisville. This allowed the
two groups not only an opportunity to meet,
but a chance to work together for what is
hoped will be a closer relationship in the

The mission participants, after a late
arrival in Washington due to a plane delay,
packed the day with visits to a number of
agencies as well as meetings with a large
part of the Kentucky legislative delega—
tion. The schedule included speeches by
Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator Rudy
Boschwitz, both of whom told the delega-
tion of the continued need for support of

Others also addressed the Kentuckians,
including Senator Wendell Ford, who ad—
dressed the importance of Israel and its
continued safety; Representatives Larry
Hopkins, William Natcher and Romano Mazzoli,
who discussed the events of the day. A
brief appearance was also made by Indiana
congressman Lee Hamilton.

During the busy day in Washington the
group met with Mark Talisman, who gave a
dramatic speech, called by many delegates
the day's highlight. Talisman, director of
the Washington office of the Council of
Jewish Federations, told the Kentuckians of
the importance of their visit.

He stressed the need for more similar
delegations to come to our nationis capital
and urged them to make the trip often.
Talisman said there is a need for someone
to look out for the Jewish interests in
Washington, and he noted that our presence
is required to counter a very expensive and
well-organized Arab lobby.

The highlight of the day for others was



a briefing by the American Israel Public


Affairs Committee in Washington in the
Rayburn House Office Building, where
Leslie Levy and Julie Spiegel made pre—

Also outstanding was a Pentagon brief—
ing by Richard Dudley and Lt. Col. Jim
Carney, the two members of the Pentagon's
Israel Desk.

Mission participant Steven Kesten
described the Pentagon visit as follows:

”We walked down a long hallway. The
walls were covered with the flags of the
50 states and numerous framed newspaper
frontpages and magazine covers depicting
the events of #0 years ago; the deaths of
Roosevelt, Hitler, and Ernie Pyle; the
end of the war in Europe and the presi-
dency of Truman.

We were ushered into an austere brief-
ing room where we listened to Richard
Dudley, a bright young man who shares the
Israel Desk for International Security
Affairs with Air Force Colonel Jim Carney.
Dudley seemed very knowledgeable; he has
seven years of experience in Middle-East
affairs and spends a great deal of time in

. Dudley assured us that first and fore-
'most our government is committed to the
sovereignty and security of Israel. Our
dollar commitment in fiscal year 1986 is
at an all time high and this figure
fluctuates with need. We are involved in
a number of joint efforts with Israel such
as the Strategic Defense Initiative or
”Star Wars”. We trade information on ad-
vanced weapons and Russian or Arab aggres-
sion in the area.

Israel has the third biggest air force

in the world with 550 combat aircraft.
The F-16‘s cost 20 million dollars apiece
and in fiscal year 1986 Israel will have
150 of them. It costs $2,000 per hour to
fly this plane and one million dollars to
train each pilot.

The Senate says, ”no Hawks (missiles)
without talks,” referring to Jordan. The
Defense Department position is that the
sale of Hawks and jets to Jordan would not
jeopardize Israel's security. Dudley said
that they would merely be a replacement for
1960's jets, to an Air Force with only #0


. The arms race in the Middle-East takes
a third of Israel's budget and is the
major reason for an inflation rate that
was 20% in AprilJ'

From a more peaceful standpoint, dele—
gates also traveled to the State Department,
where Ms. Barbara Bodine, political officer
in the Office of Israel and Arab—Israeli
Affairs discussed the peace process in the
Middle East.

The Community Relations Committee (CRC)
of CKJA continues to be active on a number
of fronts. The entire community should be
aware that the Committee encouraged all
members of our community to write to our
Senators and President urging our govern—
ment not to provide additional military
technology to the government of Jordan
until it commits itself to meaningful par—
ticipation in the Middle East peace process.
As a result of letters from our community
and others, President Reagan has announced
that he does not intend to submit such a
request to the Senate at this time. We
were all pleased to learn that both of our
Kentucky Senators cosigned the letter to
the President urging the action that he
finally took. The CRC thanks everyone in
the community who did write.

Discussions between members of the CRC
and the central administration of the
Lexington—Fayette County school system
resulted in the fact that for the first
time no high school graduation ceremony
this year included a reference to any
particular religious belief. To the best
of our knowledge no invocation or benedic—
tion at the graduation ceremonies included
or concluded with phrases such as "in
Christ's name we pray.”

The Committee continues to maintain its
school liaison program. There are a number
of members of our community who have volun—
teered to act as liaisons between the Jewish
community and the public schools. These
persons routinely meet with the school
principals to review schedules of activi—
ties to make sure they do not conflict with
religious holidays. All of the principals
continue to be willing to work with the
Committee. Any member of our community who
has a problem of a religious nature with a
particular school is urged to contact
Charlotte Baer who heads the Liaison Pro—
gram. She may be reached in the evenings
at 277—3072.

We continue to encourage members of the
community to contact the CRC if they believe
they might be of some help with a particular
problem. It is only through the constant
effort of all of us that we will be able to
continue to have our Jewish community thrive
in Central Kentucky.




Even in the press of recent headlines
and crises of concern around the world, we
must never forget the situations of our
brothers and sisters in the Soviet Union,
who are also hostages of a sort. Their
”crime" is their desire to practice their
religion and to emigrate from the Soviet
Union to Israel.

The plea below concerns Yuli Edelshtein,
prominent Moscow Hebrew teacher, sentenced
December 19, 1984 to three years on false
charges of illegal drug possession. It is
based on information just received by the
National Jewish Community Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC).


The phone rang Sunday morning at 9 a.m.
-— the voice said, ”Sheila, this is Boris
Klotz calling. I have Tanya Edelshtein
with me, she just returned from a two-day
visit at the labor camp.

YULl NEEDS HELP —- He is beaten every

day -- the camp administrator told him,
'1 will have you beaten every day until all
your crazy religious ideas are expelled out
of you.’

His siddur has been destroyed. The camp

inmates do not allow him near his bunk until
it is time to go to sleep.

The fear is that they want to maim him or
physically annihilate him —— This was ex-
pressed by the statement 'Heaven forbid he
could become another Berenshtein and have
his eyes gouged out or worse -.'”

Please give Tanya and her husband Yuli
moral support. Send letters and telegrams
of concern to the head of the camp adminis—
tration requesting intervention on behalf
of Yuli Edelshtein to prevent his physical
destruction. Send telegrams of solidarity
to Yuli at the prison camp.

York, has been named Director General of
United Jewish Appeal operations in Israel
commencing September 1, 1985. Lavie suc-
ceeds Chaim Vinitsky who will retire after
50 years of distinguished service as the
United Jewish Appeai's representative in
,‘ Naphtali Lavie will bring his consider-
.Wfle talents to an exceptionally challen-
ging assignment. His appointment marks a
new phase in the interaction of the United
Jewish Appeal and its widespread American
Jewish constituency with the people of

“Through United Jewish Appeal,” said
Lavie, ”American Jews express their soli-
darity with other Jews and with the values
of our tradition. I have long admired the
United Jewish Appeai's magnificent accomp-
lishments and commitment to Jewish causes,
and consider it a privilege to serve in
this new capacity.”

Lavie, the son of a rabbi, was born in
Poland. He spent the war years in Nazi
concentration camps and was freed from
Buchenwald in 19A5. immediately there—
after, he and his brother went to Israel.

In 1946, he joined the Haganah and
fought in Israel's War of Independence.
After the establishment of the State, he
was sent to Eastern Europe to assist in
bringing Jewish refugees, including many
children, to Israel.

I.\, Beginning a career as a journalist, he

.-ater served for 14 years as news editor
and senior correSpondent for Haaretz, one
of Israel's leading newspapers.

He also served as spokesman and advisor
to the Minister of Defense. In 1977, Lavie
was appointed spokesman of the Foreign
Ministry and Advisor to the Foreign Minis-
ter on Public Affairs. Lavie participated
directly in all phases of the peace nego-
tiations between Egypt and Israel.

In 1981, he was appointed Consul General
of Israel in New York where he was an arti-
culate advocate of Israel's causes.

As Director-General of UJA's operations
in Israel, Lavie will direct a wide range
of activities including programs of over-
seas missions, public relations, Project
Renewal, and leadership seminars.

Lavie is the author of the first bio-
graphy of Moshe Dayan, published in 1968.
He is married to the former Joan Lunzer
of London. They are the parents of four





The Shari Eldot Fund continues to grow
while Shari continues to wait for a new
heart. The total in the fund now stands
at over $8300. This money will be used
for Shari's medical expenses. We hope
the match will be made soon!

Mark Rosenzweig, the young boy from
Massachusetts who underwent a bone marrow
transplant at the U.K. Medical Center, is
now at home and progressing satisfactorily.
His family is most appreciative of the
support our Central Kentucky Jewish com-
munity provided.

Following our two recent experiences
with the bone marrow transplant patients,
a recent meeting of the presidents of all
the Central Kentucky Jewish organizations
decided that a memo should be sent to all
presidents whenever a Jewish patient is
admitted to the unit and they will help
find volunteers to assist the families.
The Social Services Committee heartily
endorsed this proposal, and the Bone
Marrow Transplant Unit has been asked to
contact CKJA Administrator Judy Saxe so
that she can activate this network.

How good it is to know that our com-
munity is willing to reach out to our
fellow Jews here at home as well as

Dear Friend, MaY30.1985
A little over two months ago, I wrote to you regarding a series of talks between Israel 81"

the U.S. aimed at creating a free trade area between the two countries. By that time, an
agreement initialed by former U.S. Trade Representative Bill Brock and Israeli Finance Minister
Yitzhak Modai had been turned over to the Congress for approval. Because of the incredible
trade implication for Our two countries, we put that agreement on a ”fast track” to win
Congressional approval.

As chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over trade issues, I was
especially pleased to help bring this important matter to a speedy resolution. The Senate
Finance Committee held a hearing on March 20 and subsequently adopted my compromise for those
trade areas considered to be sensitive to the domestic market. The House of Representatives
approved identical legislation and the Senate gave final approval on May 24, well within the
prescribed time mandated by law.

This agreement to create a free—trade area is an important advance in both political and
economic ties between the United States and Israel. The goal of the agreement is to eliminate,
in phases, all tariffs imposed on products traded between the two countries by January 1, 1995.
Under this agreement, most Israeli imports would receive duty—free treatment immediately.

I am delighted to have contributed to this successful conclusion that symbolizes the U.S.‘s
ongoing commitment to Israel's continued growth and stability. This agreement further
strengthens U.S. ties with a strategic, democratic friend in a volatile region of the world.

A proposed amendment to the CKJA By—Laws
calling for a minimum of 10% of funds re‘
ceived without restrictions to be alloca-
7ed to support other charities and organi-
zations was presented to the CKJA board

in April, discussed in May and June‘ and
was voted down at the June meeting.








Following intensive discussion at the June
board meeting of a second proposed amend-
ment to the By—Laws, which had been pre-
sented in May, it was decided that because
it dealt with the system of bookkeeping
within the organization, an amendment to
the By-Laws was unnecessary. Therefore,
the amendment was withdrawn and a simple
motion was substituted and passed. The
motion reads as follows:

"The expenéeA 05 the Campatgn Commtttee

Therefore, if ten percent of funds re-
ceived are designated for Project Renewal,
then ten percent of campaign expenses would
be deducted from Project Renewal receipts.

CKJA Board of Directors and their spouses

A new treatment for infertility has been
discovered! it is so new, and has such a
direct bearing on our people that we are
being asked to spread the word now.

We all know of people who are childless
who may benefit from this discovery. A
simple blood test might be all that is
necessary to bring great joy and delight
into the lives of people who have given up

Our source is an article scheduled to
appear in The American Journal of Human
Genetics, titled ”Discovery of a New
Genetic Disease in Ashkenazi Jews.”

”We have recently discovered an extra—
ordinarily high frequency among Ashkenazi
Jews of a genetically transmitted hormonal
disease called ”nonclassical adrenal hyper-
plasia.” This condition, involving an
enzyme deficiency, results in chronically
elevated adrogenic (male) hormone levels
and consequent impairment of fertility in
both males and females. Other manifesta-
tions of the disorder include premature
sexual development in children and un-
wanted facial hair growth, severe acne,
and baldness in young women. According to
our preliminary studies, as many as one in
every thirty individuals of Ashkenazi
Jewish descent may be affected with non—
classical adrenal hyperplasia and one of
every three is a carrier of the trait.“

”Diagnosis of the disease state by hor-
monal blood tests can be accomplished in
childhood. Medical therapy can then be
instituted in order to avert the tragic
consequences of infertility in later years.

Once diagnosed, treatment reverses the
symptoms. in the Ashkenazi Jewish popula—
tion we suspect that a significant number
of individuals with infertility may di—
rectly benefit from these investigations.”

Coleco industries donated the dolls ——
1000 black Cabbage Patch Kids. El Al
lsrael Airlines airlifted them free.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL's assiciate national
director, distributed them to Ethiopian
Jewish refugee children in absorption cen-

The airlife, “Operation Childhood”, was
conceived by Mr. Foxman when he visited
some of the children at an absorption
center. “They were in a new home, totally
different from the old and there was also
a language barrier.”

From idea to agreement by Coleco, to
airlift, to delivery of the dolls in Israel,
to distributing them at the absorption
center, took less than a week.

Said Mr. Foxman: ”Handing out the
Cabbage Patch Kids and watching the ex-
pressions of the children receiving them
was pure pleasure. They hugged them and
kissed them and talked to them. They
smiled and laughed -- some for the first

time'” fi/Lom the ADL Butte/tin, June, 7985 Q
