Soviet Jews coming home to Israel.
Hundreds of thousands of them. Israelis
receiving them, helping them become a part
of the country. And American Jews helping
too, playing our part in the drama.

The American Jewish effort to help
Soviet Jews settle in Israel is called
Operation Exodus. Like the Biblical Exodus,
a great mass of Jews are moving from
slavery to freedom. And Jewish life will
never be the same again.

The Soviets have relented, and Soviet
Jews are free to leave for a life of
freedom, as Jews in the Jewish homeland,
Israel. Moving from slavery to freedom --
from oppression to liberty: this is a
recurring theme in Jewish history.

The very idea that people could end
their oppression and change it through
struggle to freedom -— that idea was a
revolutionary concept introduced to human
culture by the Jewish people.

Who are the Soviet Jews now preparing
to leave the USSR or already arriving in
such large numbers in Israel? They have
lived in conditions of modern oppression --
but they have struggled to be free. They
are a generation worthy of freedom. They
have earned it during their decades of
wandering in the Soviet wilderness. There
was no straight line to their freedom. And
there is no straight line to their new
lives in Israel.


In their dream of freedom, in our dream
of an end to the oppression of Jews, our
responsibilities begin. We were
responsible for helping free Soviet Jews.
Now we must be responsible for helping them
build new lives as free men and women, as
free Jews in the free Jewish land.

Operation Exodus is our way of sharing
in the dream and the responsibility. The
special UJA/Federation $420 million
campaign is our share in enabling Israel to
settle more than 800,000 Soviet Jews. The
money is desperately needed for the costs
of transporting Soviet Jews from Moscow to
Israel and to help with the cost of
settling them during their first year in

Operation Exodus is our way of helping
this true exodus of Jews move from
oppression to freedom, to new lives in the
State of Israel.

Pmeldent’s Message

We are witness to the most momentous
changes in world political systems since
World War II. Soviet domination of Eastern
Europe has ended and democratic governments
are emerging. A united East and West
Germany will join NATO and be the strongest
nation in the new European community. In
Russia the Communist dictatorship is
struggling to create democracy and free

What do these events mean to the
several million Jews in Russia? What do
they mean for Israel and the Middle East
conflicts? What do they mean for U.S.

This year 40,000 Soviet Jews are coming
to the U.S. and 200,000 to Israel and more
will likely follow. For the initial years
the resettlement costs will be great for
housing, jobs, education and care. In the
longer term the great reward of a stronger
Israel with a larger and more skilled
Jewish population will far outweigh the
costs. Israel absorbed hundreds of
thousands of immigrants in its early years
under much more adverse conditions and
today they are productive citizens. Now
Israel again will absorb large numbers of
new immigrants who will in future years
find a rewarding life and strengthen

Moreover, we should be thankful (as we
remember the world prior to the creation of
Israel in 1948 and the highly restrictive
immigration policies of the U.S. and other
countries) that a free and democratic
Israel exists to welcome these Jewish
refugees, and that Jewish communities
throughout the U.S. also welcome the
resettlement of many.

Yes, we are called upon again for a
special campaign ~ Operation Exodus. But
how fortunate this time that our support is
to resettle Jews in Israel and the U.S.,
rather than to rebuild an Israel damaged by
war as in 1967 and 1973. And, let us
recall that for many of us it was only one
or two generations ago that our ancestors
fled Eastern Europe and Russia. Our
ancestors brought us the blessings of
Jewish life in the U.S., and we now have
the unique opportunity to provide the
blessings of Jewish life in Israel and in
the U.S. to many others.

The crowd was out in force to watch and participate in a set of baseball

The two graphs on the reverse side show
“Where the Money went." Figures represent
collections and subsequent expenditures
during 1989.

The first graph, 1989 Campaign
Collections, shows the designated areas
into which collections fall. Campaign
expenses come from each area of campaign.
Approximately 2% of all collections went
back into the process of raising money.

The 1989 campaign was conducted under
the expert leadership of Simone Salomon.
Men’s Campaign for that year was led by
Steve Caller, Women’s Division Campaign by
Ellie Goldman, Cheri Rose, and Marilyn
Gall; Super Sunday by Judy Baumann and Mark
Hides; Israel Bonds Campaign by Charles
Stern; and the Project Renewal Campaign by
David Kaplan.

A full report of the 1990 CKJF-UJA
Campaign will be released in the spring of
1991. The 1990 chairs are hard at work
completing the solicitations for this
campaign year.

In addition to the money collected and
disbursed by CKJF for campaign, UJA and
local programs, we have other assets which
remain as “reserve funds."

These are listed as follows as of

December 31, 1989:


Ampal—American Israel Corporation. $4,400

City of Louisville ................ 6,360
State of Israel ................... A7,?87
Joseph Wolf Endowment Fund ........ 17,554
Rosenberg Endowment Fund .......... 17,075
Catastrophic Needs Fund ........... 17,784

The second graph, 1989 Disbursements of
Funds Collected (After Campaign Expenses),
shows how funds collected in 1989, minus
campaign expenses, were allocated.

The money going to United Jewish Appeal
consists of 70 percent of the General
Campaign; Project Renewal, Passage to
Freedom, and Israel Only money. UJA in
turn uses these funds to support the non—
military needs of Israel and the needs of
Jews throughout the world.

Money retained by Central Kentucky
Jewish Federation is used within our local
community for programs maintained by the


Executive Committee, Community Relations
Committee, Social Services Committee
Cammunity Activities Committee, and Budget
and Allocations Committee. In addition, a
major portion is disbursed by CKJF to other
charities as listed below:

Judging Israel

J ews are news. It is an axiom of journalism. An indispens-
able axiom, too, because it is otherwise impossible to ex-
plain why the deeds and misdeeds of dot-on-the-map Israel
get an absurdly disproportionate amount of news coverage
around the world. If you are trying to guess how much cover—
age any Middle East event received, and you are permitted
but one question, the best question you can ask about the
event is: Were there any Jews in the vicinity? The paradigmat—
ic case is the page in the Intemational Herald Tribune that de-
voted seven of its eight columns to the Palestinian uprising.
Among the headlines: “Israeli Soldier Shot to Death; Pales-
tinian Toll Rises to 96.” The eighth column carried a report
that 5,000 Kurds died in an Iraqi gas attack.

Whatever the reason, it is a fact that the world is far more
interested in what happens to Jews than to Kurds. It is perfect-
ly legitimate, therefore, for journalists
to give the former more play. But that
makes it all the more incumbent to be
fair in deciding how to play it.

How should Israel be judged? Spe-
cifically: Should Israel be judged by the
moral standards of its neighborhood or
by the standards of the West?

The answer, unequivocally, is: the
standards of the West. But the issue is
far more complicated than it appears.

The first complication is that al-
though the neighborhood standard
ought not to be Israel’s, it cannot be ig-
nored when judging Israel. Why? It is
plain that compared with the way its
neighbors treat protest, prisoners and
opposition in general, Israel is a beacon
of human rights. The salient words are
Hama, the town where Syria dealt with
an Islamic uprising by killing perhaps
20,000 people in two weeks and then paving the dead over;
and Black September (1970), during which enlightened .Ior-
dan dealt with its Palestinian intifadeh by killing at least 2,500
Palestinians in ten days, a toll that the Israeli intifadeh would
need ten years to match.

Any moral judgment must take into account the alterna-
tive. Israel cannot stand alone, and if it is abandoned by its
friends for not meeting Western standards of morality, it will
die. What will replace it? The neighbors: Syria, Jordan, the
P.L.O., Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Ahmed Jabril, Abu Nidal (ifhe is
still around) or some combination of these—an outcome that
will induce acute nostalgia for Israel’s human-rights record.

Any moral judgment that refuses to consider the alterna-
tive is merely irresponsible. That is why Israel’s moral neigh-
borhood is important. It is not just the neighborhood, it is the
alternative and, if Israel perishes, the future. It is morally ab-
surd, therefore, to reject Israel for failing to meet Western
standards of human rights when the consequence of that re-
jection is to consign the region to neighbors with considerably
less regard for human rights.

Nevertheless, Israel cannot be judged by the moral stan—
dards of the neighborhood. It is part of the West. It bases
much of its appeal to Western support on shared values,
among which is a respect for human rights. The standard for
Israel must be Western standards.


But what exactly does “Western standards" mean? Here
we come to complication No. 2. There is not a single Western
standard, there are two: what we demand of Western coun-
tries at peace and what we demand of Western countries at
war. It strains not just fairness but also logic to ask Israel,
which has known only war for its 40 years’ existence, to act like
a Western country at peace.

The only fair standard is this one: How have the Western de-
mocracies reacted in similar conditions of war, crisis and insur-
rection? The morally relevant comparison is not with an Ameri-
can police force reacting to violent riots, say, in downtown
Detroit. (Though even by this standard~the standard of Ameri-
ca’s response to the urban riots of the ’6OS—Israel’s handling of
the intifadeh has been measured.) The relevant comparison is
with Western democracies at war: to, say, the US. during the
Civil War, the British in Mandatory Pal—
estine, the French in Algeria.

Last fall Anthony Lewis excoriated
Israel for putting down a tax revolt in
the town of Beit Sahour. He wrote:
“Suppose the people of some small
American town decided to protest Fed-
eral Government policy by withholding
their taxes. The Government respond—
ed by sending in the Army. . . Unthink-
able? Of course it is in this country. But
it is happening in another. . . Israel.”

Middle East scholar Clinton Bailey
tried to point out just how false this
analogy is. Protesting Federal Govern-
ment policy? The West Bank is not Sel-
ma. Palestinians are not demanding ser—
vice at the lunch counter. They demand
a flag and an army. This is insurrection
for independence. They are part of a
movement whose covenant explicitly
declares its mission to be the abolition of the state of Israel.

Bailey tried manfully for the better analogy. It required
him to posit 1) a pre-glasnost Soviet Union, 2) a communist
Mexico demanding the return of “occupied Mexican" territo-
ry lost in the Mexican War (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona,
Utah, Nevada and California) and 3) insurrection by former
Mexicans living in these territories demanding secession from
the Union. Then imagine, Bailey continued, that the insurrec-
tionists, supported and financed by Mexico and other commu-
nist states in Latin America, obstruct communications; attack
civilians and police with stones and fire bombs; kill former
Mexicans holding US. Government jobs (“collaborators”);
and then begin a tax revolt. Now you have the correct analogy.
Would the US, like Israel, then send in the Army? Of course.

But even this analogy falls flat because it is simply impossi-
ble to imagine an America in a position of conflict and vulner-
ability analogous to Israel’s. Milan Kundera once defined a
small nation as “one whose very existence may be put in ques-
tion at any moment; a small nation can disappear and knows
it." Czechoslovakia is a small nation. Judea was. Israel is. The
US. is not.

It is quite impossible to draw an analogy between a small
nation and a secure superpower. America’s condition is so
radically different, so far from the brink. Yet when Western
countries have been in conditions approximating Israel’s,





when they have faced comparable rebellions, they have acted
not very differently.

We do not even have to go back to Lincoln’s Civil War sus—
pension of habeas corpus, let alone Sherman's march through
Georgia. Consider that during the last Palestinian intifadch, the
Arab Revolt of 1936-39, the British were in charge of Palestine.
They put down the revolt “without mercy, without qualms,”
writes Middle East scholar Fouad Ajami. Entire villages were
razed. More than 3,000 Palestinians were killed. In I939 alone,
the British hanged 109. (Israel has no death penalty.)

French conduct during the Algerian war was noted for its in-
discriminate violence and systematic use of torture. In compari-
son, Israeli behavior has been positively restrained. And yet Isra-
el faces a far greater threat. All the Algerians wanted, after all,
was independence. They were not threatening the extinction of
France. If Israel had the same assurance as France that its exis-
tence was in no way threatened by its enemies, the whole Arab-
Israeli conflict could have been resolved decades ago.

Or consider more contemporary democracies. A year ago,
when rioting broke out in Venezuela over govemment-
imposed price increases, more than 300 were killed in less than
one week. In 1984 the army of democratic India attacked rebel—
lious Sikhs in the Golden Temple, killing
300 in one day. And yet these democra-
cies were not remotely as threatened as
Israel. Venezuela was threatened with
disorder; India, at worst, with secession.
The Sikhs have never pledged them-
selves to throw India into the sea.

“Israel," opined the Economist,
“cannot in fairness test itself against a
standard set by China and Algeria while
still claiming to be part of the West.”
This argument, heard all the time, is a
phony. Israel asks to be judged by the
standard not of China and Algeria but
of Britain and France, of Venezuela
and India. By that standard, the stan—
dard of democracies facing similar dis-
orders, Israel’s behavior has been mea-
sured and restrained.

Yet Israel has been treated as if this
were not true. The thrust of the report-
ing and, in particular, the commentary is that Israel has failed
dismally to meet Western standards, that it has been particu-
larly barbaric in its treatment of the Palestinian uprising. No
other country is repeatedly subjected to Nazi analogies. In no
other country is the death or deportation of a single rioter the
subject (as it was for the first year of the innfadeh, before it be-
came a media bore) of front—page news, of emergency Security
Council meetings, of full—page ads in the New York Times, of
pained editorials about Israel’s lost soul, etc., etc.

w hy is that so? Why is it that of Israel a standard of behav-
ior is demanded that is not just higher than its neigh-
bors‘, notjust equal to that of the West, but in fact far higher
than that of any Western country in similar circumstances?
Why the double standard?

For most, the double standard is unconscious. Critics sim-
ply assume it appropriate to compare Israel with a secure and
peaceful America. They ignore the fact that there are two
kinds of Western standards, and that fairness dictates subject-
ing Israel to the standard of a Western country at war.

But other critics openly demand higher behavior from the
Jewish state than from other states. Why? Jews, it is said, have
a long history of oppression. They thus have a special vocation
to avoid oppressing others. This dictates a higher standard in
dealing with others.


Note that this reasoning is applied only to Jews. When oth-
er peoplc suffer—Vietnamese, Algerians, Palestinians, the
French Maquis—they are usually allowed a grace period dur-
ing which they are judged by a somewhat lower standard. The
victims are, rightly or wrongly (in my view, wrongly), morally
indulged. A kind of moral affirmative action applies. We are
asked to understand the former victims‘ barbaritics because of
how they themselves suffered. There has, for example, been
little attention to and less commentary on the ISO Palestinians
lynched by other Palestinians during the inttfarlch. How many
know that this year as many Palestinians have died at the
hands of Palestinians as at the hands of Israelis?

With Jews, that kind of reasoning is reversed: Jewish suf-
fering does not entitle them to more leeway in trying to pre-
vent a repetition of their tragedy, but to less. Their suffering
requires them, uniquely among the world‘s sufferers, to bend
over backward in dealing with their enemies.

Sometimes it seems as if Jews are entitled to protection
and equal moral consideration only insofar as they remain vic-
tims. Oriana Fallaci once said plaintivcly to Ariel Sharon.
“You are no more the nation of the great dream, the country
for which we cried.” Indeed not. In establishing a Jewish state,
the Jewish people made a collective de-
cision no longer to be cried for. They
chose to become actors in history and
not its objects. Historical actors commit
misdeeds, and should be judged like all
nation-states when they commit them.
It is perverse to argue that because this
particular nation~state is made up of
people who have suffered the greatest
crime in modern history, they, more
than any other people on earth, have a
special obligation to be delicate with
those who would bring down on them
yet another national catastrophe.

That is a double standard. What
does double standard mean? To call it
a higher standard is simply a euphe—
mism. That makes it sound like a com—
pliment. In fact, it is a weapon. IfI hold
you to a higher standard of morality
than others, I am saying that I am pre—
pared to denounce you for things I would never denounce
anyone else for. i

If I were to make this kind ofjudgment about people of
color——say, ifI demanded that blacks meet a higher standard
in their dealings with others—that would be called racism.

Let’s invent an example. Imagine a journalistic series on
cleanliness in neighborhoods. A city newspaper studies a
white neighborhood and a black neighborhood and finds
that while both are messy, the black neighborhood is clean-
er. But week in. week out, the paper runs front-page stories
comparing the garbage and grafliti in the black neighbor-
hood to the pristine loveliness of Switzerland. Anthony
Lewis chips in an op—ed piece deploring, more in sadness
than in anger, the irony that blacks, who for so long had deg-
radation imposed on them, should now impose degradation
on themselves.

Something is wrong here. To denounce blacks for misde-
meanors that we overlook in whites—that is a double stan-
dard. It is not a compliment. It is racism.

The conscious deployment of a double standard directed
at the Jewish state and at no other state in the world, the will-
ingness systematically to condemn the Jewish state for things
others are not condemned for—this is not a higher standard.
It is a discriminatory standard. And discrimination against
Jews has a name too. The word for it is anti-Semitism. I

A big thank you to all who worked on
CKJF’s Mitzvah Sunday ”schlepping", driving
or inventorying for our Soviet Resettlement
effort. without all your help Mitzvah
Sunday would not have been such a huge

Those who participated were: Doug
Harrison, Steve Schwartz, Jerry Nurmser,
Jimmy Mischner, Gene Doren, Ted Friedman,
Myrna Rosen, Penny Miller, Harold and Kaye
Frankel, Steve Caller, Alan Stein, Jack
Sharer, Rabbi Jon Adland, Sandy Adland,

Broudy, Martin Friedman, David Nachtel,
Bruce Peltzer, Lee Baer, Steve Schwartz and
his crew, Cherie and Eddie Adkinson, Bill
Riske and Larry Silver. And a special
thank you to all who donated items to our
new Soviet families.

Susan Caller’s efforts in organizing
the entire event are especially appreciated
~ without her cheerful and organized
presence, the event would not have flowed
as smoothly as it did. Steve Caller is
also to be thanked for his generous
donation of storage space for the items

Ne are doing an inventory so that all
items will be ready for our anticipated
families and we may call upon volunteers to
assist in the effort. Of course, when our
families actually arrive, community
participation in integrating them into
American society will be essential.



Despite a 90% chance of rain forecast
and despite a continual deluge of storms,
the CKJF Summer Picnic was held and turned
out to be a huge success. Though original
plans for dodge ball, a tug of war and a
game of softball were not held; face
painting, water balloon toss, dancing and
singing were enjoyed by many.

We would like to thank all those who
participated, and a special thanks to Jana
De Benedetti for leading group singing and
Elise Mandel for leading dancing.
