Neo-Nazi Group
Gets Postal OK

Bonn (JTA) — West Ger-
many's largest neo-Nazi
organization has launched a
nationwide propaganda out-
reach via a junk mail cam-
paign, and postal authorities
say there is nothing they can
do to stop it.
Postal authorities say that
after careful study, they con-
cluded that Frey has violated
no laws.
"Beyond protests," the
spokeswoman said, "there is
nothing we can do."
A spokeswoman for the
postal service say they are
bound by law to deliver the
mail regardless of its content.
Protests against delivering
the mail, initially from mail
carriers in Kiel who refused
to deliver the material, have
now spread to the postal
workers union.
Bundestag member Arne
Boernsen of the opposition
Social Democratic Party pro-
mised to initiate a parliamen-
tary debate on the matter.
The controversy first surfac-
ed several weeks ago, when
the junk mail campaign was
started by Gerhard Frey, a
Munich-based publisher and
longtime neo-Nazi activist.
Frey began mass mailings
to recruit new members for
his German Peoples Union,
the largest neo-Nazi party.
Frey, who also publishes the
neo-Nazi weekly German Na-
tional Newspaper, has mailed
about 28 million letters to in-
dividuals all over the country.
They are urged to help
"stop the infiltration of Ger-
many" by Turks and other
minorities.

Jewish Doctors
Meet In Berlin

West Berlin (JTA) — For the
first time in 50 years, Jewish
physicians from several na-
tions gathered at a conference
in West Berlin. The purpose
of the meeting was to
establish a relationship be-
tween current issues in
medical ethics and the tradi-
tion of the Halachah.
Hosted by the Organization_
of Jewish Doctors in Berlin,
the First International
Jewish Congress for Medicine
and Halachah attracted 300
physicians and psychologists
from 14 countries.
Ulf Fink, the Berlin senator
for health who addressed the
conference last month, recall-
ed that the city's first
hospital, founded in 1756,
was a Jewish hospital. Fink
said that before World War II,
2,800 of the 6,800 area doc-
tors were Jewish.

Due to the success of our Fall series of Sundays at the Midrasha, we are again offering an ongoing series of four
lectures open to the community which will raise important issues in our lives as American Jews. Our goal is to
provide a forum for discussion of matters of Jewish interest.

The Theatre of the Heart: The History and Development of the Yiddish Theatre

Although the Jewish people have existed for thousands of years, it was only a little over a hundred years ago that
the art of theatre emerged. It took so long to get here, and was so quick to disappear. We will take a historic and
anecdotal look at the history of the Yiddish Theatre and its colorful, lively stars.
