Arabs, Jews
Visit Auschwitz

Amnesty Slams
Israel, Palestinians

Tel Aviv/JTA — Some 300 Israeli
Arabs and Jews toured the former
Jewish district of Krakow, beginning a
visit that aims to help Muslims under-
stand what Jews suffered in the
Holocaust.
The group of 150 Israeli Arab intel-
lectuals, athletes and businessmen,
joined by as many Jews, were to spend
the next two days touring and learning
about what happened at Auschwitz.
'Arabs have asked to learn about the
Jewish suffering," Eleonora Lew, a
Jewish participant on the trip, told the
Associated Press in a telephone inter-
view from her home in Tel Aviv before
departing for Poland.
A delegation of about 200 Arabs and
Jews from France also are set to join the
group.

Washington/JTA — Both Israel and
the Palestinians are committing war
crimes, according to Amnesty
International.
The group's annual report cited what
it termed Israel's unlawful killings,
obstruction of medical assistance and
targeting of medical personnel, exten-
sive and wanton destruction of proper-
ty, torture and cruel and inhuman
treatment, unlawful confinement and
the use of human shields.
The group also cited armed
Palestinian groups for deliberate target-
ing of civilians and the Palestinian
Authority for arresting scores of people
for political reasons, even executing
some of them. The report also criticized
the U.S.-led crackdown on terror, say-
ing it has made the world a more dan-
gerous place.

Chandra Levy
Laid To Rest

Washington/JTA — A private Jewish
burial was held for Chandra Levy in
California. Between 75 and 100 people
attended the service, which was held
just days after Washington police
turned over Levy's remains to her fami-
ly.
The case of Levy, who disappeared in
April 2001 in Washington at the age of
24, received widespread media atten-
tion because of speculation that she was
having an affair with then-Rep. Gary
Condit, D-Calif. Condit has denied the
affair.
Her body was found in a Washington
park in May 2002.

Historic Shuls
May Get Grants

Washington/JTA — Historic syna-
gogues in the United States are now eli-
gible for federal funding. Churches and
religious places designated as historic
sites are now eligible for such funding
after the change in policy was
announced by Interior Secretary Gale
Norton on Tuesday in Boston.
The change is seen as another step in
President Bush's plan to allow govern-
ment funding of religious organiza-
tions. An official with the historic
Touro Synagogue said the synagogue
already had requested a $750,000
grant. The Orthodox Union praised the
decision.

London/JTA — Madonna reportedly is
finding a new building for the London
Kabbalah Centre.
The singer, who in recent years has
become a student of Jewish mysticism,
and her husband, film director Guy
Ritchie, donated nearly $6 million to
help the center move into a 10,000-
square-foot building. Madonna also is
writing a series of children's books
based on kabbalistic parables.
