Shamir Criticizes
Pope, Waldheim

Jewish leaders denounce Vatican meeting
for Austria's ostracized president

Jerusalem — Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir last Sunday told
reporters that Israel considiered Pope
John Paul II's scheduled audience
with Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim to be an "unfriendly act."
Shamir also said that the audience
"could be explained in the world as a
kind of legitimization of the (Nazi)
crimes . according to the various
accusations!"
However, although Shamir's Likud
party had sent a telegram to the Pope

asking him to cancel the audience,
Shamir said that because Israel and
the Vatican do not have diplomatic
relations, "Israel can do nothing but
express its unhappiness and regret
about this negative move.,,
In other developments, the Vatican
said that it is "surprised and pro-

In an exclusive interview,
Jonathan Pollard's family
breaks its silence

The Jewish Community Council
of Metropolitan Detroit will take a
unique approach to its 50th anniver-
sary celebrations this fall. The Coun-
cil is going to match 200 Jewish
families with 200 families from the
Arab, black, Polish and Hispanic com-
munities in the Detroit area for three
anniversary events.
"We wanted to make it a little
more than the usual pat-ourselves-on-
the-back kind of thine said Jewish
Community Council president Leon
Cohan. The major celebration Oct. 22
at Orchestra Hall will be preceded by
two meetings in Septemeber between
the Jewish and non-Jewish families.
On Sept. 8, the families will meet at

an informal gathering sponsored by
the Council. On Sept. 20, the Jewish
families will host their non-Jewish
counterparts.
The Sept. 20 meetings in Jewish
homes will be devoted to informal
discussions, Cohan said, "so that peo-
ple can get to know each other per-
sonally on a one-to-one basis. They
will talk about our community's
aspirations and their communities'
aspirations."
The anniversary celebrations are
being co-chaired by Carole Rossen and
Berl Falbaum. Falbaum told The
Jewish News that Cohan has em-
phasized the theme of reaching out to
the community during his term as
