ENCOUNTER THE JEW IN YOU

One of the ironies of modern culture is that with all the stress on self,
self-improvement and self-knowledge, so few seem to successfully navigate
this voyage of self-discovery. For contemporary Jews, especially those with
very limited backgrounds in Judaism, this problem can be particularly acute.
Any endeavor for self-discovery which ignores a crucial element of self
is naturally doomed. The Jew's Jewishness is a vital part of his experience,
even if dormant and suppressed. But it is there, and like Everest, it must
be "climbed," because it is there.
How do we define "Jewishness"? How can a Jew relate to it? Can a
Jew deny it? Duo non Jews have something similar to it? Does a secular Jew
fit in the picture?
The Chabad-Lubavitch Organization invites you to spend a Winter
Wonderland - Shabbaton weekend with Lubavitcher Chassidim.
This weekend will explore these questions and your questions through
seminars, infQrmal discussion and study groups, tempered with Chassidic
music and dance. A program of winter sports — tobogganing, ice skating,
cross-country skiing, etc. — will be available on Sunday.

THE JEWISH NEWS

15 Jewish Candidates
Are On Canadian Ballot

Toronto — At least 15
Jewish candidates scattered
across Canada's provinces
will be on the ballot when
voters go to the polls Monday
to elect a new parliament.
A number of issues of
Jewish concern, which affect
Canadians in general, also
are on the ballot. These in-
clude hate literature, the ar-
rest and trial of war criminals
and multiculturalism.
Jews are represented in all
national parties, including
Prime Minister Brian Mulro-
ney's Progressive Conser-
vative Party; the Liberal Par-
ty led by John Turner; and
the New Democratic Party
headed by Ed Broadbent.
While Mulroney won by a
landslide in the 1984 elec-
tions, the latest polls indicate
that Turner will be the next
prime minister.
The Jewish hopefuls among
the 1,500 candidates for a
seat in Ottawa include former
British Columbia Premier
Dave Barrett, who is making
a political comeback via the
NDP in British Columbia;
NDP veteran David Olikow,
who is running in Winnipeg,
Manitoba; Robert Kaplan of
Toronto, a former solicitor
general of Canada; and
Liberal veteran Herb Gray, of
Windsor, Ontario.
Although the major issue is
the U.S.-Canadian trade
agreement, which has turned
many voters against the
Mulroney government, social-
policy matters have not been
ignored.
In a pre-election address,
Broadbent outlined his par-
ty's multicultural program,
which would include
strengthening the criminal
code and human rights code
to deal with hate propaganda.
Turner also promises to
amend the criminal code to
ensure stronger provisions
against hate propaganda.
Since January 1988, the
Mayor's Community and
Race Relations Committee in
Tbronto has been trying to
prohibit importation of the
book Why Is One Holocaust
Worth More Than Others?,
which allegedly contains
anti-Semitic passages.
The federal government has
refused to ban the book.
Minister of National Revenue
Elmer MacKay said it does
not fall under customs
guidelines that define hate
propaganda.
The minister's position,
made clear in a letter last
February, is that "although
the book may contain some

passages that could be con-
sidered anti-Semitic, taken as
a whole, it does not constitute
hate propaganda."
The Liberal program would
delete the legal requirement
to show intent to promote
hatred.
During the Conservative
administration, the criminal
code was amended to allow
Canadian courts to prosecute
war criminals for crimes com-
mitted on foreign soil.
At least 20 Canadian
residents have been identified
as Nazi war criminals and
200 more are under
investigation.

3 Terrorists
Are Caught

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli
troops wounded and captured
three heavily armed Palesti-
nian terrorists Sunday night,
as they were attempting to in-
filtrate Israel through the
southern Lebanese security
zone.
The three were identified as
members of the Democratic
Front for the Liberation of
Palestine, a Marxist, pro-
Syrian group headed by
Nayef Hawatme.
The infiltrators were equip-
ped with LAW shoulder-fired
missile launchers, Kalachni-
kov assault rifles, grenades,
ammunition and wire cutters.
According to the Israel
Defense Force, documents
were found on the terrorists
identifying them as "freedom
fighters" on their way to sup-
port the Palestinian uprising
in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip and to free comrades
held in Israeli prisons.

Soviet TV
Crew In Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A televi-
sion crew from Soviet Georgia
has arrived in Israel to film a
documentary on the absorp-
tion of Georgian Jews who im-
migrate to Israel, Haaretz
reported Tuesday.
The Soviet filmmakers met
with Rafi Bar-Lavi, secretary
general of the Association of
Immigrants from Soviet
Georgia.
They also reported the elec-
tion of Ephraim Gur, an im-
migrant from Georgia, to the
Knesset on Nov. 1. Gur was
elected on the Labor Party
ticket.
