Camp Shalom has been a great success.
Forty-four campers, along with Director
Mark Scarr, Assistant Director Elise
Mandel and counselors Toby Stein, Kelly Jo
Naterbury-Eichhorn, Rebecca Mersack, Josh
Cantor, and Naomi and Laurie Clewett,
enjoyed a delightful three weeks of
activities under the Bluegrass sun (and

Almost 1000 Visit Israel on UJA Missions
in First Charter of 1987;
$2.4 Million Raised for UJA/‘Community Campaigns

New York, NY, April 24, 1987 -- The
United Jewish Appeal’s Missions Department
has taken almost 1,000 Jewish community
leaders to Israel on 20 customized trips
in the first three months of 1987. The
participants, caucusing at the end of each
Mission, raised $8.4 million to support
humanitarian programs and social services
for Jews at home, in Israel and in 33
countries around the world. Based on UJA
statistics, each participant on a UJA
Mission increased his/her gift by a
card-for—card average of 114 percent.

Federations which have had community
and special group missions to Israel in
the first quarter of this year included
Atlanta, Boston (Physicians), Chicago
(Physicians, Mature Singles), Cleveland
(Leadership), Metrowest N.J. (Young
Leadership), New York City (women’s
Division, Wall Street, Hestchester Country
Club), Phoenix, and Pittsburgh (Future
Leaders, Next Generation).

There were also UJA national Missions
geared to specialized constituencies where
participants came from all sections of the
United States. These included Alloca-
tions, Gesher, Rabbinic Cabinet, Winter
Singles and Young Leadership.

National Missions Chairman Victor Gelb
of Cleveland hailed the substantial
increase in 1987 UJA Missions. “Our
trips,” said Gelb, ”are especially de-
signed to provide a unique adventure to
the land and people of Israel so that
donors can see what their gifts have
achieved. Going behind the scenes, and
meeting the people who have shaped and
shared Israel’s history, creates an
exciting experience that will always be
remembered. I am extremely proud of what
has been accomplished in the last three
months and I look forward to achieving new
heights in UJA Missions to Israel in

Additional information on UJA Missions
to Israel may be obtained by calling CKJF
Administrator Linda Ravvin or Alan Isaacs

Speaking of Missions .......... . ......

UJA’s National women’s Division Mission
to Israel is set for October 88 through
November 9, 1987. The Mission features a
ore-Mission stop in Romania.

Cost: New York/Romania/Israel and
return - $8400 ($400 single supplement);
Israel only — $1850 ($850 single supple-
ment). [No minimum pledge to the CKJF-UJA
campaign is required.]

Enter the power centers of Israel, the
institutions and programs to which the
"tourist" has little or no access. Meet
decision makers and government leadership
as well as Israelis from every walk of
life, arranged through visits to cities
and towns, moshavim and kibbutzim, and
Project Renewal neighborhoods. Begin with
a visit to Romania and witness history and
a vanishing culture of East European Jews.

Subsidies may be available through the
Federation. For more information, contact

 The Continuing Struggle
of Soviet Jews

Aleksey Magarik
Prisoner of Conscience

Born: November 86, 1958
From: Moscow
Occupation: Cellist
Applied to Emigrate: 1983
Arrested: March 14, 1986
Tried: June 6—9, 1986
Charge: ”Drug possession“
Sentence: Three years in a labor camp
Wife: Natasha Rather

Rusakovskaya 87-88

Moscow 107113


Even before having applied for exit
visas, Aleksey Magarik and his wife
Natasha Rather were well-known among
Moscow refuseniks as Hebrew teachers. A
cellist, Aleksey was unable to find
professional work since their application
in 1983. He participated in various
Jewish musical groups, none of which were
officially recognized, which specialize in
Hassidic and modern Israeli songs.

In response to their request to be
reunited with Aleksey’s father and sister
in Israel, they were told: "Your emigra—
tion from the USSR is not justified at the
present time".

On March 1%, 1986, Aleksey was at an
airport in Tbilisi on his way home to
Moscow. Upon searching one of his bags,
the official found several pipes and began
to question him about his smoking habits.
His other bag, already on the aircraft,
was recalled and searched. In it the
authorities claimed to have found a
cigarette pack containing four grams of
hashish. Aleksey immediately declared he
had never before seen the pack, but was
nonetheless held in custody and charged
with possession and trafficking in drugs.
Searches were conducted in Aleksey’s home
and in the home of his mother. An old,
empty plastic bag and a piece of newspaper
were confiscated.

In a trial held on June 6—9, 1986, in
Tbilisi, the judge said that since this
was Magarik’s first offense and that he
was of ”previous good character”, he would
give him "only three years in a labor
camp“. Aleksey tried to read a statement
he had written in his own defense, but,
after interrupting him repeatedly, the
judge did not allow him to continue past
the first part.


Aleksey maintains that he has been
framed and slandered. As he attempted to

state in his defense speech: “Citizen
judges!...You have committed a judicial
error. I will be given a maximum punish—
ment for a crime I did not commit...I am

In April 1987, Natasha was informed
that Aleksey’s sentence had been cut in
half and he would be released in

Action Requested:

Aleksey’s father, Vladimir Magarik, who
is now touring the United States on behalf
of his son, has asked for a massive
postcard campaign to win his son’s earlier
freedom and right to emigrate to Israel.
In response, a campaign has been coordi-
nated by the National Conference on Soviet
Jews and the Coalition to Free Soviet
Jews. Various Jewish groups are working
in this campaign. A massive printing of
postcards has been generously underwritten
by a private donor, Ed Goldenberg of

86—87 Forum
Comes to a Close
With a Growing Audience

The efforts of this year’s hard working
Forum Committee were justly rewarded with
a tremendous turnout for the final presen—

tation —- a lecture by celebrated author
Gloria Goldreich. This event, the second
annual Elizabeth Rosenberg Memorial

Program, capped an exciting year.

From sociologist Debra Dash Moore’s
lecture and dance troupe Reguesh’s ener-
getic performance, to Goldreich’s lecture,
all Forum events have drawn compliments
and attracted an enthusiastic audience.

Forum Committee Chair Susan Cantor
says, ”we want to thank the entire commu—
nity for their support. The committee was
pleased with the excellent attendance at
all three events, and because of this
response, our efforts paid off.” Invited
to chair the committee again, Mrs. Cantor
has agreed and is already exploring the
interesting program possibilities.

The success of CKJF Forum Series events
is due in large part to the volunteer
efforts of members of the community. Your
active participation is welcome in the
areas of ticket sales, publicity,
receptions and planning. Please contact
Susan (869-9112) to volunteer your time
and talents.

The 1986-87 CKJF Forum Series was made
possible by community support of the
annual CKJF‘UJA fund raising campaign. An

Jewish Federation.

The Jews in Romania Today

Bucharest, Romania -— David Moses
Rosen, Chief Rabbi of Romania, is sitting
in his Bucharest office, his face unlined
and seamless: only the eyes portray his 76
years. Besides being the country’s Chief
Rabbi, he is a member of the Communist
Party, and is also the man most responsi-
ble for helping 380,000 Jews emigrate to
Israel. ”we’re Jews —— where else should
we go?” he says, half-jokingly.

Before the Holocaust there were 800,000

Jews in Romania. Half survived. Today,
fewer than 24,000 remain, and of those,
more than 50 percent are over 65. Each

year, close to 1,000 make aliyah (mostly
the young, with university degrees), 500
die, and fewer than 70 are born. And
although the end of Romanian Jewry is but
a few decades away, the country’s Commu-
nist government has allowed Rosen and his
staff to set up one of the world’s most
extensive social—aid programs for those
remaining. He did this with $4.5 million
a year raised by UJA/Federation Community
Campaigns throughout America, and dis-
bursed by the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee.

Twenty—ton trucks deliver kosher food
packages eight times a year to 64 Jewish
communities. Clothing, blankets, and
shoes are sent twice annually; money is
sent as needed. Eleven kosher restaurants
feed 3,000 people a day. There are kosher
butchers and in Bucharest, 700 hot meals
are delivered daily. Synagogues are

Aside from free walk—in clinics, there
are four old age homes, including the
Rosen Nursing Home in Bucharest, a $2.5
million showplace of medical technology
built with American Jewish funds.

Rabbi Rosen makes frequent goodwill
trips to America, visiting American-Jewish
leaders and Nashington policy makers. His
grace and charm hide the fact that for
much of his life, he nimbly stayed one
step ahead of the Nazis, and in the early
19505, two steps ahead of Romania’s


As for anti—Semitism, at least in the
old sense, Romania has moved on. The
economy is currently suffering from a
series of natural disasters and an over—
long dependency on Stalinist—type heavy
industries. With a whopping debt to the
West, results fall heavily on the man in
the street. Lines for bread, meat, and
gasoline are extensive. Oil and sugar are
rationed. A single 40-watt light bulb is
allowed per room. There is high unemploy—

This has, in turn, translated into
jealousy of the Jews of Romania, who are
leaving the country at a steady clip, and
are provided excellent medical care, not
to mention inexpensive (or free) meals
should they qualify. Romanian
anti—Semitism today is best encapsulated
by a sign outside of Rabbi Rosen’s office.
"we take no conversions to Judaism. It is
pointless to ask."

CJF Continues to Watch
Jewish Agency Programs

The Council of Jewish Federation’s
board of directors recently passed several
resolutions and recommendations to be
forwarded to the Jewish Agency.

Affirming that ”an effective budget
requires a detailed, thorough and timely
preparation” of all relevant financial
information, the CJF urged timely distri-
bution of data so that the allocations and
decision-making bodies have ample time to
become familiar with the budget items.

Disclosure on the implementation of the
1986 Jewish Agency resolutions was re-
quested. CJF was particularly interested
in the status of the studies and findings
undertaken by the Jewish Agency with
regard to the funding of non-Zionist and
anti—Zionist institutions in Israel. CJF
has also requested information on steps
the Jewish Agency has taken to implement a
“set of guidelines calling for equitable
treatment of funding requests for programs
from the various branches of Judaism."

In other recommendations, CJF upholds
the role of United Israel Appeal to
continue to ”monitor and evaluate the
programs, services and activities of the
Jewish Agency.”



Jewish Inmates
Respond to Article

In response to our article in the
previous CKJF Bulletin, "FCI Lexington
Fills Religious Needs of Jewish Inmates”,
(Vol. X, No. 4), members of the FCI Jewish
population wrote to CKJF and enclosed two
in—house memos.

The Jewish inmates at FBI are a unique
community with special needs. In order to
inform you of these needs, we reprint
parts of their correspondence to us here.

June 5, 1987

As the leaders of the Jewish inmates
here at FCI, we were very pleased to see
your recent article. We are a small but
very active group that is doing our best
to preserve and enhance our Jewish heri-
tage and faith. Our religious leader is
Rabbi Shalom Kalmanson.

In life it is a rare treat to meet a
rabbi such as he, a teacher who is attuned
to modern problems and to how these
problems relate to Torah study.

The Rev. Dr. Schave is the staff
advisor of our Jewish community, and he
holds a weekly meeting with our Jewish
Advisory Board. These meetings are held
so that we can express our needs, and he
guides us through the bureaucratic jungle
so that we can best achieve fulfillment of
our goals and needs in the most efficient

We have currently undertaken the task
of refurbishing and improving our Kosher
kitchen. We have just received a new oven
which was sorely needed (we’re sure you’ll
agree it’s a bit ironic for Jews to be
seeking an oven). Now we are working on
acquiring a mixer, a toaster, and a
fryalator as we have none of this equip-
ment available for our use.

Mary Birenbaum has been doing a great
job as a volunteer. She makes our female
congregants feel that they are still a
part of Judaism and that somebody cares.

Our religious services shift slightly
with the influx of congregants. One month
we are more observant and lean toward the
orthodox, and the next we may include more
English in our observances. As Rabbi
Kalmanson puts it, "It is not necessary to
place a label on a group". We are reli-
gious Jews who care; we believe in G-d,
Torah, and the Mitzvahs. We do not wish


to waste our time here and we appreciate
the opportunity to learn and grow both
culturally and religiously.

Dur FCI Jewish community would certain-
ly appreciate and could use your support.
We would very much like to have active
visitors. We would also like to have the
opportunity to form an ORT or B’nai B’rith
chapter, but this would require a fair
amount of advice for us to proceed with
such a plan.

We are drastically in need of good
Jewish literature, books for study of
Hebrew, Torah, and history, as well as
tapes or records with either cantorial or
Yiddish music.

In conclusion we can only add the
following, that the FBI Jewish community
has become an extremely functional and
active group through the help and support
of wonderful people such as you. We have
grown from only a few men attending
services to an active congregation that
cares about our community. What was once
only the dream of a couple of congregants
has turned into an active, vital group
that wishes to set an example for others
to follow.

Once again, our sincere thanks for your
kind concerns and generosity for our
people here, and we will be highly appre-
ciative of any efforts you might make on
our behalf.

Yours truly,

The Chaplain’s Committee (Jewish)
Marvin Glass, Irwin Holtzman, Anne
Pollard, Alan Wolfe, Mark
Weinstein, and Gerald Schall.

Dear CKJF,

He never thought we would be writing to
you so soon after our first letter. The
congregants of the FCI—Lexington facility
have a real problem this year concerning
the High Holy Days.

This is our problem. We hope you have
some suggestions for a solution. Ne need
a rabbi for the High Holy Days. The
chaplain’s office said we could probably
get one if Rabbi Kalmanson or Rabbi Litwin

Our next problem would be how and where
to house and feed a rabbi. If you or your
readers have any ideas, please contact
Rabbi Sholom Kalmanson in Cincinnati
(513-821—5100) or Rabbi Litwin in Louis~

We know the High Holy Days sound far

off, but we really must resolve this
problem. Rabbi Kalmanson and Rabbi Litwin
could probably find a volunteer rabbi.

Rabbi Litwin suggested that we might be
able to find someone who could donate a
Winnebago so he could stay on the grounds
or just outside. If you have any other
ideas or can help us, please contact
either rabbi immediately.

EVE-lat Kind Of (AxllieS?

Eleven Kuwaiti oil tankers are to be
flying the American flag soon as they ply

the waters of the Iraq—Iran war zone. If
Iran is not deterred by the Stars and
Stripes —- and it was not when its ”stu-

dents" seized the Tehran Embassy, when its
surrogates blew up the Beirut Marine
barracks or its devotees took hostages in
Lebanon -— and it threatens one of these
re—flagged tankers, U.S. Navy vessels
presumably will steam to the rescue.

But they apparently will do so without
American air cover, making them as vulner—
able as the USS Stark. The Gulf is too
small for aircraft carriers to operate in
and maintain acceptable safety margins.
So for the last decade Washington has
tried, intermittently, to win the right to
base American fighter planes and other
forces in littoral countries. Those who
have refused include Kuwait and Saudi

Now, by bringing the Soviets into
re-flag three tankers, the Kuwaitis
smoothly availed themselves of U.S.
protection as well, giving nothing in
return. Next door, Saudi Arabia has
received tens of billions of dollars worth
of sophisticated U.S. weaponry in the past
ten years to help “stabilize” the region.
But the Saudies failed to force down the
Iraqi plane which fired on the Stark.
Facilities the United States operated at
Dhahran, starting in World War II, have
been off—limits as an American base for 25
years. In general, Saudi Arabia does
little to help us patrol the Gulf.

Kuwait and Saudi Arabia make curious
U.S. allies. while the former looks to
the American flag -- and American Gl’s -—
for protection, its news media continue
virulently to attack this country, most
recently accusing President Reagan of
being responsible for the attack on the
Stark because he ”participated directly
and indirectly in fomenting, escalating
and continuing the [Iraq—Iran] war."

Saudi Arabia remains the most unreli-
able link in Washington’s chain of “moder—
ate” Arab states -- funding the PLO,
refusing to assist Egypt to reenter
inter-Arab politics, and warning Jordan


against direct peace talks with Israel.
The American response? More arms sales,
including the current proposal to sell
another dozen F-15 fighters worth
half—a-billion dollars.

Former U.S. Navy Secretary John Lehman
recently estimated the Central Command ——
which grew out of the Rapid Deployment
Force -~ to protect U.S. interests in the
Gulf costs American taxpayers approximate~
ly $40 billion annually. Yet to be
credible, it needs land bases. However,
of the six—member Gulf Cooperation Council
(GCC) -- Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman,
Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab
Emirates -- only Oman allows the United
States to use its bases.

Yes, GCC countries face danger from
Iran. Yes, the United States has strong
national security interests in the region.
But it is Japan and the nations of western
Europe, with good-sized navies of their
own -- not the United States -- which
depend on Gulf oil. And no, the Saudis
and Kuwaitis do not behave like American
allies. Uncle Sam may be about to become
a Persian Gulf patsy -- for friends, foes
and frauds alike.

Fears About Arab Investment
in U.S. Prove Groundless

The fears of the 1970’s that Arab
states would buy up key American companies
with petrodollars and wield tremendous
economic and political power in the U.S.
have proved groundless. Foreign direct
investment in the U.S., i.e., ownership of
at least ten percent of the equity of a
company, totaled $183 billion in 1985.
But the total direct investment of the 13
members of OPEC only accounted for $4.6
billion, or 2.5 percent of all foreign
direct investment. Of the $4.6 billion,
one country, Kuwait, accounted for 87
percent or $4 billion of all OPEC direct
American investment.

Arab Investment, continued

Kuwait, because of its tiny size, was
unable to follow the Saudi Arabian example
and spend its billions on internal devel—
opment. Instead, Kuwait pursued what
appeared to be a strictly commercial
policy of investing where its return was
highest and its risk lowest. The only
major U.S. company purchased by Kuwait was
Santa Fe International, an oil exploration
enterprise. with the infusion of Kuwaiti
capital, Sante Fe began to develop its oil
lands more rapidly.

Saudi Arabia used the petrodollars it
accumulated in excess of what was needed
for its internal development to purchase
U.S. Treasury securities and to keep its
money on deposit in U.S. banks.
