"HOTEL TERMINUS"

won high critical
acclaim for the French
film's depiction of the
life and times of Klaus
Barbie, convicted of
Nazi atrocities.

JACKIE MASON, the comedian, was the focus of controversy for
his role in an ABC:1V sitcom, "Chicken Soup," in which his love
interest is a Catholic woman played by Lynn Redgrave.



positive results. Perhaps world
Jewry, shaken by the prospect
of a religious war, will confront
the Who Is A Jew issue with an
air of commonality and com-

gains this year, it is too early to
tell if Israel's response, in the
form of a proposal for elections

will come to fruition. But there
is a sense that the PLO cannot
be wished away, and it is impor-

held accountable for all of its
statements — not just its talk
of peace for Western consump-
tion but its reassurances to the
Arab world that Israel can and
will be dismantled.
The coming year will shed
more light on prospects for
peace in the Middle East, and
chances of strengthening unity
within the Jewish people. This

past year has been one of
trauma; may the new year be
one of peace. And may it start
within each of us. For those who
want to be forgiven must learn
to forgive. 0
