Grenada Hanuka: Jewish Chaplain Visits U.S. Soldiers

handing out candles to the
local children, Goldstein
said he was not recognized
as a Jew despite his beard
and camouflaged yarmulka.

The chaplain said the
major service held during
the holidays for the Jew)h
soldiers was conducted in
what was formerly the
Cuban Embassy compound.
He said the participants
sang songs and exchanged
Hanuka "gelt." One Jewish
soldier exchanged quarters
with him, the only money
she had with her at the
time.
Goldstein said he saw
some significance in the fact
that the services were held
in the Cuban compound, in
that it formerly symbolized
anti-religious forces and
had now been turned into a
place of worship.
On the eighth day of
Hanuka, Goldstein said
he was walking near a
building where a 19-
year-old Jewish soldier

was manning his post.
The youth called out to
him and Goldstein
wished him a happy
Hanuka. The young
soldier didn't realize it
was Hanuka. Goldstein
provided him with a
menora and candles and
tefilin. The youth put on
the tefilin, something he
told Goldstein he had not
done since his Bar
Mitzva.
Goldstein told the JTA
that he hopes to organize
Grenadians living in Brook-
lyn to ship clothes to the
Caribbean island. He said
that while he was in Gre-
nada he observed kosher
dietary laws by bringing
some food with him from the
U.S. and also eating local
fruit.

KEREN KAYEMETH LEISRAEL

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Don- ald
Rumsfield,
President Reagan's special
envoy to the Middle East,
conferred with Israeli lead-
ers here last Friday follow-
ing meeting in Damascus a
day earlier with Syrian offi-
cials, but not President
Hafez Assad.
The American diplomat
was in Cairo Sunday.
Rumsfeld met with Pre-
mier Yitzhak Shamir and
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens. He reportedly
sought an Israeli promise
not to interfere with the
evacuation of Palestine
Liberation Organization
chief Yasir Arafat and 4,000
of his men from Tripoli in
northern Lebanon.
A Foreign Ministry
spokesman said before
Rumsfeld's arrival in
Jerusalem that Israel
had not guaranteed safe
conduct to Greek ships
expected to begin. the
PLO evacuation.
Rumsfeld made no state-
ments to reporters after his
meeting with Shamir, say-
ing that any comment
might "hurt the cause."

German Tourism
to Israel Rising

BONN (JTA) — German
tourism to Israel, which
dropped sharply last year, is
rising again and there is a
good chance that the down-
ward trend may be re-
versed, according to Eli
Noy, director of the Israel
Government Tourist Office
in Frankfurt.
He reported that 17,000
German tourists went to Is-
rael in October, up 17 per-
cent from the same month
last year. The figure for all
of 1983 is expected to be
108,000, compared to
107,500 in 1982.
Tourism from other coun-
tries to Israel also fell last
year but the decline from
Germany was steepest. Un-
like the United States,
Britain and France, Ger-
many has few Jewish
tourists to send to Israel.
Jews are' the only tourists
who will travel to Israel in
times of political strain and
image problems.

Lubavitch Hasid, entered
the army seven years ago.
He is now with the New
York National Guard and
was called up on assign-
ment for the Hanuka holi-
day to assist soldiers of the
82nd Airborne Division. In
civilian life, Goldstein is
chairman of the Commu-
nity Planning Board No. 9
in Brooklyn and also works
for the Bureau of Emer-
gency Housing Services, a
relocation operation.
Goldstein was also in-
volved in the legal action
against the army to permit
a Lubavitcher Hasid, who
went to medical school at

the army's expense, to wear
a beard and skullcap during
his three-year commitment
to military service as a doc-
tor.
The legal action, initiated
by the National Jewish
Commission on Law and
Public Affairs (COLPA),
was dropped after the army
yielded on the issue last
summer.

Rumsfeld met with
President Hosni Mubarak
for two hours in Cairo Sun-
day, mainly to allay Egypt's
concern over the U.S.-
Israeli military and eco-
nomic agreements reached
at President Reagan's meet-
ings with Shamir and Arens
in Washington earlier this
month.
Mubarak was quoted as
telling reporters after meet-
ing the American envoy
that Rumsfeld's explana-
tion of the U.S.-Israel rela-
tionship was "convincing"
to "a certain extent." He
added, "We will still ex-
change views."

Israel Denies
Levy Met With
Hussein in Paris

JERUSALEM(JTA) —
Government officials flatly
denied an Israel Radio re-
port that Deputy Premier
David Levy met with King
Hussein of Jordan in Paris.
Knowledgeable sources
here dismissed the report as
highly unlikely.
The report originated
with the state-owned radio's
Paris correspondent after
Levy, who was in the
French capital for a meeting
with President Francois
Mitterrand last week,
abruptly cancelled plans to
return to Israel to attend
the weekly Cabinet meet-
ing. He also cancelled, on
short notice, an interview
on Radio Monte Carlo.
The latter said it was told
that Levy had been called to
an important political meet-
ing. Levy gave no reason for
his change of plans.
