WJC President Stresses Jewish Assertiveness

JOHANNESBURG
(JTA) — Edgar Bronfman,
president of the World
Jewish Congress (WJC)
urged Jewish communities
throughout the world to as-
sert their Jewishness and
Jewish values, to abandon
illusions and to "prove
through our commitment to
human betterment that
existence as a minority does
not mandate a marginal
role in human affairs."
Bronfman, addressing
the 32nd national congress
of the South African Board
of Jewish Deputies here last
weekend, spoke at length of
his "dreams" for world
Jewry and for Israel. He re-
called that at the WJC's
Governing Board meeting
in Washington last 'Feb-
ruary, "I said — among
other things — that one

guish dreams from illu-
sions. I quoted Herzl, who
said that the right dream
can come true if it is willed
hard enough.

The WJC leader noted
that he and his colleagues in
the WJC "have pursued the
quiet ways of diplomacy in
seeking to sever the issue of
Soviet Jewry from the com-
plex diplomatic jostling of
the superpowers. We are
striving to convince the
Soviet leaders that Jews
should not be held hostage
in this 'second cold war.'
"At the same time, we
have welcomed the more
vocal support of those
who care about human
rights," he said.
Finally, Bronfman said,
"I dream of a world where
anti-Semitism, not only in
its blatant brutality but in

City Council members have
called upon President Rea-
gan to press for efforts to
end the persecution of some
25,000 Jews living in
Ethiopia.
At the same time, Brad-
ley, at a press conference in
City Hall several days ago,
offered temporary refuge to
Falashas Simcha Desta, his
wife Rachel and their child
who were recently reunited
in Los Angeles after their
dangerous exit from
Ethiopia while they proceed
with their emigration to Is-
rael.
City Councilman Dave
Cunningham, who had met
Desta at a black-Jewish
dialogue conference spon-
sored by the Jewish Federa-
tion Council, presented the
family with a resolution on
behalf of his colleagues
which expressed their grave
concern regarding the
plight of Falashas still liv-
ing in isolated villages in
Ethiopia's rural areas.
The resolution noted
that the Falashas are
barred from practicing 6,
their religion, prevented
from emigrating, and live
under constant threat of
arrest and physical tor-
ture.
The resolution called
upon Reagan to express the
concern of the United States
and its citizens for the
human rights of Ethiopia's
Jews — including the right
to emigrate freely — to "re-
levant foreign govern-
ments" and to seek ways to
assist them to emigrate.

The Cabinet Out of Israel?

TEL AVIV (JTA) — So
manyCabinet ministers are
traveling abroad, or about
to leave, that the next
Cabinet meeting may have
to be held in North America
if a quorum is to be ob-
tained, some commentators
suggested Tuesday.
Former Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon, now a
minister-without portfolio,
departed for Canada with a
small army of bodyguards
because of the hostile recep-
tion he was expecting from
Canadian critics of his
policies in Lebanon and orr
the West Bank. Deputy
Foreign Minister Yehuda
Ben-Meir is in Washington
for on-going talks on the
Lebanese and Middle East
situation.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir has been in Europe
since last Friday in an effort
to improve Israel's relations
with the European Eco-
nomic Community. He is
visiting Luxembourg, Bel-
gium and Italy.
Defense
Minister
Moshe Arens left for
France to attend the
Paris Air Show. Arens is
an aeronautical
engineer.
Several other Cabinet
ministers have announced

plans to visit the U.S.
shortly on behalf of Israel
Bonds and the United
Jewish Appeal.
Government spokesmen
said Tuesday that the mass
exodus of ministers sup-
ports Israel's belief that it is
not at the brink of war with
Syria in Lebanon.
