Chasidic Rabbi
Eli Carlebach

Before you take another bite, think about the fact that a diet high in cholesterol and fat can load
your blood with cholesterol, which raises your chance of heart attack. In fact, more Americans
may die by the fork than by any other weapon.

FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 1990

New York (JTA) — Eli
Chaim Carlebach, co-rabbi
with his twin brother Shlomo
of the small Upper West Side
synagogue Kehilath Jacob,
died of a heart attack March
23 at the age of 65.
Inheriting in 1967 the
small shtiebel-like brown-
stone shul from their father,

Naphtali, who until the rise
of Hitler was the chief rabbi
of Baden, Austria, the twin
Carlebachs were famous for
bringing a little Chasidic
spirituality to the Upper West
Side. The shul on 79th Street
became a bastion of Chasidic
prayer in a modern 1960s-
type setting.
Eli Carlebach also held a
pulpit at the Hillside Jewish
Center in New Jersey, and
was the founder and editor-in-
chief of Zecher Naphtali, a
research institute and
publisher in Jerusalem that
has published over 40
Chasidic works.

Wants Arab Ties

Brasilia (JTA) — Brazil's
new president seems to have
retreated from assurances
he made to Jewish leaders
on his position toward the
Middle East.

speech that his government
would condition its policy on
the Middle East on the coun-
try's economic ties with the
Arab world.
Collor, 40, was sworn in as
the first Brazilian president
elected by direct vote in 29
Arab immigrants and
their descendants in Brazil

number of Jews living there
is variously estimated at
between 80,000 and 120,000.
In January, Collor assured
leaders of the World Jewish
Congress in New York that
he would reconsider his
country's support for the
1975 U.N. resolution
equating Zionism with
He told WJC President
Edgar Bronfman that he was
considering an initiative to
revoke the anti-Zionist vote.
Collor asked Bronfman, a
business leader, to help en-
courage American in-
vestments in his country.
Reliable sources say,
however, that Collor's for-
eign minister , Fransisco
Rezek, told a Brasilia jour-
nalist that this matter had
no priority at all in his
During the campaign, Col-
lor angered some of his Jew-
ish voters by bowing to Arab
pressure and withdrawing
from a previous statement
that he would not permit the
opening of a PLO office in
Meanwhile, Collor has
decided to include a Jew in
his cabinet.
