THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Jewish Visitors to Mexico Will Discover Kashrut Observance

By DAVID KAYE

NEW YORK—When Jew-
ish people travel, chances
are they head for a world
capital with its cosmopoli-
tan atmosphere, or to a re-
sort area with an abundance
of sun, sand and surf.
I have never made a trip
that offered more of both of
the above than my recent
trip to Mexico.
The excitement started
with the breathtaking
mountains that stretch as
far as the eye can see, as our
Aeromexico jumbo jet flew
towards Mexico City.

Its wide boulevards with
countless fountains, mon-
uments, and well kept
lawns and shrubbery give
Mexico City a decidedly
continental atmosphere.
Add to this an endless
number of hotels, restau-
rants, and smart shops,
and you'll have an idea of
how exciting a big city can
be.
After we unpacked we
headed a few blocks west on
Paseo de la Reforma to the
Tel Aviv Restaurant, a small
friendly spot with sidewalk
tables. Sitting at that side-
walk cafe in Mexico City
was remarkably like sitting
in the sidewalk cafe on Di-
zengoff St. in Tel Aviv.
In Mexico City there are
many kosher restaurants. A
few that we sampled in-
cluded the Tel Aviv, the Old
Vienna Delicatessen, the
Kineret, and the restaurant
in the headquarters of Keh-
illah Ashkenazi at Acapulco
70.
In addition to the above,
Mexico City has more fine
restaurants per square
block than any city in the
world. They range from
spectacular architectural
achievements like Del Largo
to, many charming old ha-
ciendas that are now restau-
rants but retain all of their
former style and charm.
Mexico City has an end-_
less number of Chinese

restaurants. There are
also French, Spanish, Jap-
anese, Italian, Scandina-
vian and Hungarian res-
taurants as well as
English pubs. The kosher
kitchen at the Maria Isa-
bel Hotel can cater to par-
ties of several hundred.
The famed Zona Rosa or
Pink Zone of Mexico City is
filled with elegant shops
featuring the leading names
in watches, leather goods
and high-fashion clothing.
Many shops feature Mexi-
can crafts.
Mexico is the world's larg-
est silver' producer and its
master craftsmen working
in sterling and silverplate
produce an impressive array
of silverware and jewelry.
Countless museums and
art galleries abound and the
National University of Mex-
ico is a showplace as well as
probably being the largest
university in the world. The
University of Mexico was in
operation for almost a cen-
tury when American's old-
est college, Harvard Univer-
sity, was founded. But the
pride of Mexico's cultural
life is the famed archeologi-
cal museum in Chapultepec
Park.
In a series of fascinating
exhibits arranged around
a huge plaza, Mexico's
rich heritage comes to life.
This heritage can also be
found at the many archeo-
logical sites in Mexico in-
cluding some near Mexico
City. One can explore pyr-
amids and lost cities that
date back several thou-
sand years through the Az-
tec and Mayan periods.
Other cultural activities
include the Mexican Folk
Ballet, concerts and thea-
ter.

There are in Mexico sev-
eral settlements of Indian
Jews of Marrano ancestry.
Part Indian and part Span-
ish, they are Jewish in their
religion and their culture.
They follow the Bible, the

Torah and the basic Jewish
prayers. A rabbi from one of
the major congregations in
Mexico City travels to and
serves these authentic In-
dian Jews.
If you're a member of
Hadassah, ORT, Bnai Brith,
or almost any major Jewish
organization, chances are
there is a chapter in Mexico
City for you to visit. For Fri-
day night or Saturday
morning services you'll be
welcomed at your choice of
Reform, Conservative, or
Orthodox congregations.
Mexico City also is the
site of the Jewish Sports
Center, an unusual complex

of athletic facilities for the
Jewish community includ-
ing a huge pool that Mexico
uses to train its Olympic
swimmers.
Jewish tourists are also
welcome at the Kehillah
Ashkenazi which is the
hub of Mexico City's Jew-
ish life. This large build-
ing houses a number of
organizations and also
contains a kosher restau-
rant that is open to the
public.
Nestled off to one side of
the Kehillah Ashkenazi is
the Centro Del Libro Hebro,
a well-stocked store for Jew-
ish books and gifts.

From Mexico City it was describing an outdoor seder
just over' a half-hour flight under the stars at the Po-
to Acapulco. You've never sada Del Sol. If you're ever
seen a resort quite like Aca- in Acapulco for Passover, be
pulco. Sunshine is almost sure to celebrate the seder
guaranteed all year round in this unique setting.

Dutch authorities noted
that even if Aaronson held
dual citizenship — and
there is no evidence to bear
this out — he was still a
subject of The Netherlands
where he was born and
where his wife, children and
parents live.

Dutch Leaders Protest Execution
of Leon Aaronson in Baghdad

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
The leaders of all Dutch pol-
itical parties expressed out-
rage over Iraq's execution of
a Dutch-born Jew, Leon
Aaronson, and that coun-
try's insistence, until last
week, that Aaronson was
alive although he was
hanged in Baghdad three
months ago.
The permanent foreign
affairs committee of the
Dutch Parliament has sub-
mitted a number of ques-
tions on the matter to For-
eign Minister Max Van Der
Stoel who is currently on a
official visit to Turkey.
The Iraqis, who finally
admitted carrying out their
death sentence against Aar-
onson, continued to insist
that he was an Israeli spy.
The Iraqi Charge d'Af-
faires at The Hague, Is-
mail al Kandi, told news-
men that "It has been
proved that Aaronson is an
Israeli citizen and as a
Zionist spy who caused my
country much damage and
suffering, he was sen-
tenced to death by an Iraqi
court and executed."
Aaronson, a male nurse,
was on a medical mission to
the Kurds in .northern Iraq
when he was seized by Iraqi
soldiers last March 24.
