The ADL audit reported a
record number of serious in-
cidents in 1989. They in-
cluded 8 arsons, 4 attempted
arsons, 5 bombings and 21
cemetery desecrations. The
only event in this category
recorded in Michigan was
the vandalism of the Temple
Emanu-El sukkah. Loben-
thal says this should not
have been recorded in the
arson category.
The most serious incident

in the United States oc-
curred last July when a
Holocaust survivor was
stabbed to death by a man he
accused of scrawling
swastikas on his Brooklyn,

Washington (JTA) — Van-

Md., branch of the Yeshiva
of Greater Washington on
Jan. 2, causing thousands of
dollars in damage.

1990s Issues

While the vast majority of
Soviet Jewish emigrants opt
to settle in the United
States, 40 percent of those
who left the Soviet Union in
December chose to go to
Israel. In December 1988, 10
percent of the Soviet Jews
went to Israel, Aronson said.
The Jewish Agency's Sim-
cha Dinitz recently predicted
Israel would have to absorb
between 50,000-70,000
Soviet Jews annually in the
coming years. "The question
is, what is Israel going to do
with all those Soviet Jews"
who are often skilled
workers with medical,
technical and engineering
backgrounds, Aronson said.
"This is going to be a big
challenge and major prob-
lem facing the American
Jewish community and Jews
worldwide in the 1990s."
Aronson expressed concern
about how recent changes in
Eastern Europe could affect
relations between Israel and
the United States.
"If Eastern Europe and the

Soviet Union are removed as
players in the Cold War with
the United States, will Israel
lost strategic significance in
the Middle East?" he asked.

show in Israel.
"Many of those in the
younger generation are af-
flicted by the three A's: af-
fluence, assimilation and
apathy," he said. "They
have no sense of commit-
ment to their community or
to Israel.
"The generation that
witnessed the Holocaust is
moving out of active leader-
ship" and no replacement is
in sight, Aronson said. "The
question is, how do with
motivate that (younger) ge-
neration of people?"
Jews in the United States
are reassessing their view of
Israel, he said. The Jewish
state can no longer be touted
as "the perfect socialist
