tices will be commonly ac-
cepted."
The three rabbis staked out
the accepted positions of their
denominations, but made no
headway in reaching
accomodation.

Soviet Jewry
At Center Stage

S

oviet Jewry was a focal
point of the Council of
Jewish Federations
meetings. With the Dec. 6
Washington Mobilization the
topic of several sessions, a ma-
jor resolution, and an early
morning Miami Beach run
were devoted to Soviet Jewry.
More than 250 delegates
participated in the five
kilometer Freedom Run/Walk
for Soviet Jewry at 6:30 a.m.
last Friday despite heavy
overnight rains and threaten-
ing skies at race time. The
CJF resolution calls Soviet
Jewry "a burning national
concern" and "we call on all
federations to provide
whatever resources are neces-
sary to ensure a maximum
representation" on Dec. 6.
Saturday night, the CJF
delegates participated in a
dialogue with recent Soviet
emigre Ida Nudel in
Jerusalem via a satellite
transmission. Nudel, who is
coming to Washington Dec. 6,
thanked the Jewish people for
supporting her during her
16-year struggle to emigrate
from Russia to Israel. In
halting English, she asked for
the same kind of support for
all Jews who remain in the
Soviet Union. "After the
Holocaust, we must save all
Jews in lands of persecution.
And I would tell (Soviet
Premier Mikhail) Gorbachev
that you can not make Jews`
into Russians."
The cause of Soviet Jewry
also received a boost from the
1960s folksinging trio Peter,
Paul and Mary, who perform-
ed at the Wednesday evening
plenary. Opening with their
popular "Blowin' In The
Wind," "If I Had a Hammer,"
and "Puff the Magic Dragon,"
Mary Travers then had the
crowd cheering as she describ-
ed her visit to the Soviet
Union in 1983 with a Union
of American Hebrew Con-
gregations delegation.
Describing herself as 'the
towering shiksa," Mary
dedicated a Hebrew song to
the Soviet Jewish refuseniks.
"It is a song that I have never
recorded," the fifty-ish grand-
mother said, "but the KGB
has." She asked the audience
to join her in Washington on
Dec. 6.
Peter Yarrows led the au-
dience in "Don't Let the
Lights Go Out," a popular
number which he said he

wrote for Chanukah and "as
an expression of my own
Jewishness."

U.S. Aid Cuts
A Mixed Blessing?

A

worrisome assess-
ment of Israel's out-
look for U.S. economic
and military aid was
presented by AIPAC Director
Thomas A. Dine. With the
U.S. federal deficit an increas-
ing concern, and federal
budget cuts almost assured,
Dine outlined several steps
that should be undertaken by
American supporters of
Israel.
He said Israel must be pro-
tected from drastic U.S. aid
cuts, but the prospects are
bleak. He said Israel's long-
range debt payments may be
relieved by privately refinan-
cing U.S. loans from the Yom
Kippur War. Israel's interest
payments of $1 billion per

Thomas Dine

year could be reduced by $150
million annually if Congress
approves the refinancing
plan.
Additional steps to offset
reductions in U.S. aid include
making the two-year-old free
trade agreement between the
U.S. and Israel as success, and
opening the U.S. and NATO to
Israel defense goods and
services.
Dine said Israeli exports to
the U.S. rose eight percent in
the first seven months of 1987
while U.S. exports to Israel
rose 30 percent. However,
there are glitches such as
Federal Aviation Adminstra-
tion rules which prohibit
Israel from bidding on
civilian aircraft repair con-
tracts. Dine said Israel's high
technology expertise can help
the U.S. and NATO countries
while offsetting the worst ef-
fects of the cancellation of the
Lavi jet fighter project.
Dine also advocated U.S.
support for Israel's new anti-
missile missile, the Arrow;
giving Israel a one-time ex-
emption to buy naval equip-
