forts to begin working with
the man. There is absolutely
no indication that this will
prove to be a problem."
The question of Jewish con-
cern about Brown has always
been a murky one. According
to several observers, Jewish
resistance to Brown has been
exaggerated by groups whose
opposition to Brown has been
based on other factors.
"Southern Democrats have
a long history of trying to in-
volve Jews in their problems
with the black Community,"
said Steve Silbiger, Washing-
ton representative for the
American Jewish Congress.
"In the 60's they blamed Jews
for their own civil rights prob-
lems; now they're pointing to
the Jewish community be-
cause of their own lack of
responsiveness to Ron
Brown's candidacy."
And Democrats who feared
Brown's liberal connections
with Sen. Edward Kennedy,
(D-Mass.) — the leading icon
of the liberal wing of the par-
ty — have worked to stir up
the Jewish pot in an unsuc-
cessful effort to derail the
Brown bandwagon.
Despite hints of acrimony
from the Jewish activist com
munity, Brown has received
support from some Jewish
leaders — including Rep.
Sander Levin (D-Mich.). He
has received important en-
dorsements from the AFL-
CIO and New York Governor
Mario Cuomo.
Recently he has been in
contact with a number of
Jewish activists, setting up
meetings intended to patch
up their real or exaggerated
differences.

Applications Up
For JINSA Tour
To Israel

When a Jewish group in
Washington began planning
their annual tour that brings
U.S. and Israeli military of-
ficers, they received a sur-
prise that casts some in-
teresting light on the continu-
ing U.S.-Israeli strategic
relationship.
"What we feared was that
the trouble in Israel would
keep people away," said
Shoshana Bryen, director of
the Jewish Institute for Na-
tional Security Affairs
(JINSA). "What we found was
exactly the opposite; we had
more applicants than ever."
The annual JINSA tours
are designed to give U.S.
military people a first-hand

glimpse of Israel's security
problems — and the ways the
Israeli Defense Forces are cop-
ing with these problems. In-
creasingly, Israeli forces are
relying on technologies
developed in joint programs
with the American defense
establishment.
U.S. military officers, Bryen
said, tend to have two very
different misconceptions
about Israel.
"Either they have this
`cowboy' view of Israel as the
little nation who can do ab-
solutely anything — or they
see it as a client state that
needs endless help from this
country. One purpose of these
tours is to puncture both
myths; we want them to see
that Israel has some very real
needs, but also that it has a
lot to offer this country in
return."
Bryen admitted that she
had no real explanation for
the surprising turnout for
this year's tour. "In part," she
said, "it has to do with the
fact that our military recog-
nizes from their experiences
in Viet Nam that you can't
settle a political situation
with military solutions. I
think there's a deep under-
standing of Israel's dilemma
— and a desire to learn more."

Bracelets Aid
Ethiopian Jews

Washington (JTA) — Jewish
students are selling specially
designed silver and leather
bracelets to help raise money
and heighten awareness of
the plight of famine-stricken
Ethiopian Jewry.
The project is being under-
taken by the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundations in
cooperation with the World
Union of Jewish Students and
the American Association for
Ethiopian Jews.
Between 10,000 and 15,000
Jews remain stranded in
Ethiopia, in urgent need of
relief. About 1,500 Ethiopian
children live in Israel as or-
phans while their parents
languish in Ethiopia.
The bracelets can be
ordered for $18 each or at a
student price of $10. If bought
in lots of 10 or more, they are
$8 apiece. Add $2 postage for
each order. All proceeds will
go toward the campaign.
Orders should be sent to
B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tions, 1640 Rhode Island Ave.,
N.W., Washington, D.C.
20036, or phone (202)
857-6564.
