Latin Expert Says Jews Are in Danger

JO°

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Jacobo Kovadloff, director
of South American Affairs
for the American Jewish
Committee, has described
Latin America as "a society
in ferment, facing unprece-
dented challenges of social
justice, freedom and vio-
lence, along with ongoing
terrorism and repression."
Jews are especially vul-
nerable in unsettled condi-
tions such as exist in Latin
America at present, Kovad-
loff pointed out. Often, he
said, they are victims of
endemic anti-Semitism and
neo-racism.

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Gifts and pledges totalling
some $8 million — high-
lighted by a new $1 million
from Leonard Stern, chair-
man of the board of Hartz
Mountain Corp. — were an-
nounced at Yeshiva Uni-
versity's 58th annual
hanuka dinner.
The dinner, at the Wal-
dorf Astoria, attended by
more than 1,000 people,
honored Ghity Stern, widow
of Max Stern, noted philan-
thropist, founder of Hartz
Mountain, and long-time
vice chairman and member
of the university's board of
trustees. Max Stern died
last May.
One of his first major gifts
to the university resulted in
the establishment of Stern
College for Women, the na-
tion's first undergraduate
liberal arts and sciences

school for women under
Jewish auspices.

The $1 million pledge
from Leonard Stern will
be used to build an ath-
letic center on the uni-
versity's main center
campus.

Other projects honoring
the memory of Max Stern,
including the following:
• A $3.75 million gift
from the Max Stern Found-
ation. will fund the largest
single scholarship program
ever established at the uni-
versity, the Max Stern
Scholars Program.
• The board of trustees of
the Rabbi Isaac Eichan
Theological Seminary, an
affiliate of the university,
has renamed the seminary's
community service arm the
Max Stern Division of
Communal Services.
• Many gifts of $100,000
or more were made to the
university to endow the Di-
vision of Communal Serv-
ices and other projects.
Another announcement
at the dinner was a major
contribution by Hermann
Merkin, president of Mer-
kin and Company, Inc., a
member of the Yeshiva
University Board of Trus-
tees, board member of both
the university's Benjamin
Cardozo School of Law and
Albert Einstein College of
Medicine, and co-chairman
of its $100 million Century
Campaign.
In recognition of Merkin's
contribution, the university
will rename its Teachers In-
stitute for Men as the Isaac
Breuer College of Hebraic
Studies in honor of Merkin's
late father-in-law, Isaac
Breuer, an intellectual
leader of German Jewry, an
attorney, and a founder of
the Poalei Agudat Israel, of
which he became president.
Born in Hungary in 1883,
Breuer was brought to
Germany as a child. In
1936, he left Nazi Germany
and settled in Jerusalem.
He died in 1946.
Proceeds from the dinner
went towards the univer-
sity's Century Campaign,
an effort initiated in 1979 to
raise $100 million to com-
memorate the university's
centennial in 1986.

gap between classes, the
friction between developed
and undeveloped countries,
and the ongoing clashes be-
tween guerrillas and armies
were among the major prob-
lems facing Latin America.
"The conflict between
liberalism and conser-
vatism in Latin America is
not simple or clearcut,"
Kovadloff said. "It involves
aspects of social democ-
racies, Christian democ-
racies, Socialism and Mar-
xism, as well as the rightw-
ing movements of neo-
Nazism and indigenous fas-
cists; populism, de-
magogism and militarism."
The Spanish heritage,
embodying absolutism,
monolithical societies and
civilian/military regimes, is
still strong, Kovadloff
stated, adding that "Pan-
Americanism remains the
un-attained dream."
Kovadloff formerly di-
rected the AJCommittee

Buenos Aires, his native
city, from which he was
forced to flee in June 1977,
as a result of anti-Semitic
threats to the lives of him-
self and his family.
