New AZF leader
seeks more visibility
for Zionists in U.S.
Washington (JTA) — Benjamin
Cohen, the new president of the
American Zionist Federation
(AZF), believes that the "biggest
misconception" among American
Jews is that the Zionist organiza-
tions do not play a major role in
the American Jewish community.
"It really bugs me," he said in
an interview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency shortly after
being elected head of the umbrella
organization at the end of its
eighth biennial convention in
Washington in early September.
Cohen, of New York, vice
president of the Labor Zionist Al-
liance, said that out of some 5.2
million Jews in the United States
more than one million are mem-
bers of the various Zionist groups.
"These same people who are lead-
ers in the Zionist community,"
especially in the smaller com-
munities, he stressed.
They are the "movers and shak-
ers" in local federations and the
United Jewish Appeal, Cohen
said. He said while they may not
be among the "big givers" they are
the presidents, vice presidents,
secretaries, treasurers and other
activists in the local communal
Cohen said the problem is that
when they participate in the gen-
eral Jewish community, "nobody
recognizes them as Zionists. The
take it for granted they are
Zionists, but the others don't
realize where they come from."
At the start of his two-year
term, Cohen would like to see this
misconception changed. "We have
to start announcing who we are,"
he said of Amercian Zionists.
"People will start to realize that
without us there would be very
very large gaps in the welfare
boards, the local federations and a
lot less work would be done."
Cohen noted that "everybody
who gives a dollar to the UJA calls
himself a Zionist." But he said
"there is quite a difference" be-
tween those who support Israel
and those aligned with Zionist
organizations. "Zionism is our
major activity," he explained.
"Support of the State of Israel is
paramount in our day-to-day ac-
out of U.S.
Washington — The mayor of an
Austrian town, honored in Miami
Beach on Friday while promoting
tourism, has been ordered to leave
the U.S. by the Justice Depart-
Franz Hausberger, mayor of
Mayrhofen, has been identified as
a sergeant in a Nazi SS brigade .
during World War II. Hausberger
claims he was cleared of any war
crimes by a post-war tribunal, but
Neal Sher, director of the Justice
Department's Office of Special In-
vestigations, said Hausberger's
unit was "very notorious."
Sher said it had been estab-
lished "beyond any doubt" that
the First SS Brigade "engaged in
the wholesale murder of Jews,
gypsies and other civilians."
Sher said how Hausberger ob-
