Generals Say Israel
Could Safely Relinquish Territory

m

ore than 80 percent of Israel's
reserve generals and former
intelligence chiefs believe Is-
rael can safely relinquish most of Judea
and Samaria, given specific security ar-
rangements, according to a recent re-
port in the Israel
daily Ha'aretz.
The majority
of the men said that continued Israeli
sovereignty in the territory will likely lead
to another Arab-Israeli war and believe
that peace treaties between Israel and
the Palestinians, Jordanians and Syri-
ans are possible.

In addition, 71 percent of those in-
terviewed believe Israel's safety will be
guaranteed even if it returns to Syria
"significant territory" on the Golan
Heights, and 58 percent would agree to
the eventual creation of a Palestinian
state.
The first ever to be conducted
among Israel's highest ranking reserve
generals and former intelligence chiefs,
the survey was administered by the
Council for Peace and Security, a group
of defense analysts and reserve officers
from the Mossad and Israel Defense
Forces.

Fighting Anti-Semitism
By Teaching Judaism

Goldburgerstein,
Are You Out There?

he Association for the Study of
Jewish Languages is compiling
information for a book on Jew-
ish family names and would like to hear
from Jewish families with unusual sur-
names.
Send information, including all
known spellings and the story behind
the name, to David L. Gold, 67-07 215

n an effort to combat anti-Semi-
tism, the Jewish Chatauqua Soci-
ety (JCS) in the 1992-1993
academic year will sponsor more than
180 courses on Judaism at universi-
ties and theological seminaries across
the United States and Canada.
Founded in 1893 as the educa-
tional arm of the National Federation
of Temple Brotherhoods, JCS has,
since 1948, established lectureships
at schools from Alaska Pacific Uni-
versity in Anchorage to the Universi-
ty of Nebraska in Lincoln.
"Our aim is to foster multicultur-
alism in higher education today," said
JCS Chancellor Roger Jacobs. "More
than 2 million students have attend-
ed JCS-sponsored seminars and lec-

tureships. While JCS focuses on mak-
ing Jews and Judaism more acces-
sible to non-Jews, we also encourage
Jews to have a greater appreciation
of other religious and ethnic tradi-
tions."
The first JCS resident lectureship
was established in 1948 at Howard
University, originally an all-black col-
lege in Washington, D.C.
Courses emphasize history and
philosophy and often include field
trips to local temples, where students
participate in Shabbat services. At Dil-
lard University in New Orleans, the
JCS sponsors a seder. conducted by

Center.

CAJE Publishes
Sephardi Catalog

here would you go to find an
article or a book about the
classic Hebrew poets of me-
dieval Spain, or the recent history of
Balkan Jewry? How would you find a
Sephardic Haggadah or cookbook, or
locate a film dramatizing the contem-
porary situation of Jews in Arab lands?
The answer: The Whole Sephardic
Catalog: A Resource Guide, a bibliog-
raphy of references and resources on
Sephardic Jewry, recently published by
the Coalition for the Advancement of
Jewish Education (CAJE).
This year of the observance of the
quincentennial of the Spanish exile has
produced a proliferation of resources
about Sephardic Jewry. The Whole
Sephardic Catalog includes more than
740 entries describing these resources.
For information, contact CAJE Pub-
lications, 261 W. 35th St., Floor 12A,

Estee Lauder Means
More Than Just Beauty

osmetic giant Estee Lauder is
sponsoring a campaign in sup-
port of Breast Cancer Awareness
Month, which lasts through the end of
October.
The drive is being spearheaded by
Senior Corporate Vice President Evelyn
Lauder, a longtime advocate for breast
cancer research and education.
Born to Austrian-Jewish parents,
Mrs. Lauder is a member of the board
of overseers at Memorial Sloan-Ketter-
ing Hospital in New York, where she
spearheaded the fund drive to build and
equip a new breast and diagnostic cen-
ter. One of every nine women in the
United States will develop breast can-
cer.
Among the honors Mrs. Lauder has
received for her philanthropic work was
the 1991 Spirit of Achievement award,
given by the Yeshiva University Albert
Einstein College of Medicine.
As part of its campaign, which is be-
ing cosponsored by Self magazine, Es-
tee Lauder is offering free pink ribbons,
to be worn as a symbol in support of

C

the issue. The ribbons are available
throughout metropolitan Detroit, wher-
ever Estee Lauder cosmetics are sold
(with the exception of Saks Fifth Av-
enue). Those who accept the ribbons
will be asked to complete a brief form.
At the end of the month, Self will send
the names of all those who participat-
ed to President Bush, to express sup-
port for continued funding for breast
cancer research.

Yes. Count me in.

Here's my Commitment to Breast Ca

Awareness. Please send my name
