Iranian threat already surfaces as hot issue in Israeli elections By Leslie Susser JERUSALEM (JTA) — Iran maybe just months away from being able to produce a nuclear bomb, and a fierce debate is raging in Israel over how to react. The critical date could come in March, when a series of develop- ments will converge: • It will be too late to stop Iran from making a bomb, according to Israel's chief of military intelli- gence, Maj. Gen. Aharon Farkash-Ze'evi. • The International Atomic Energy Agency is due to issue a report that month on Iran's nuclear dri...

(JTA) — There were two separate minyans at last week's biennial convention of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism: a large egalitarian minyan, where most of the women as well as the men wore kippahs, that prayed with gusto three times a day in the main conference hall; and a much smaller, heavily male, non-egalitarian minyan that dav- ened more soberly down the corridor. The dual prayer services may symbolize a movement in crisis, split by divergent opinions on key issues such as the role of women, the ordination of gay and lesbian rabbis and the status of non-Jewish family members in synagogue life. But they also demonstrate that the Conservative tent is large enough to encompass a variety of views and practices, and that the leadership is willing to tak...

Berger WASHINGTON (JTA) — Presi- dent Bush brought his controversial support for school vouchers and char- itable choice to a receptive Jewish audience, and expressed support for opportunities to help Jewish day schools. Bush met Dec. 6 with 13 Jewish educators and day-school leaders, and focused the talk on his support for school vouchers and other education initiatives. Later in the day he hosted the White House's annual Chanukah party, attended by several hundred Jewish leaders. The event was held before the holiday this year because Bush won't be available later in the month. Bush's annual Chanukah meeting with representatives of the Jewish community has been controversial in past years because of who was invited and who was snubbed. Bush has brought congregational rabbis and politica...

But one Jewish group wasn't happy with the vote, and didn't mind spending many thousands of dollars to make the point. This week the Repub- lican Jewish Coalition (RJC), a partisan group, began a series of full-page ads in leading dailies — including the New York Times and Washington Post — and Jewish newspapers across the country. Featuring a photo of an Iraqi woman with a purple- stained finger indicating she had voted, the ad, with the caption "To the Union for Reform Judaism," expressed strong backing for the Bush administration's Iraq policies.

Liberals should listen to conservative whining about the 'war on Christmas' Whenever the calendar turns to December, the air usually becomes thick with the sound of Jews whining about the holiday season. For some of us, this is the time of year when we are forced to confront the reality that, despite living in a country where Jews are free not only to assertively practice (ornotpractice) their faith, we are still a small minority. That means wherever we move about this free land, we are subjected to the ever-pre- sent sight of Christmas trees and Santas while our ears are assaulted by the non-stop playing of saccharin carols. Though such displays are a manifestation of the desire of mer- chants to move consumers to buy things, rather than any lurking conver- sionary agenda, that hasn't prevented the "December dilemma" industry from making...

Leynor has discovered that his most productive and satisfying rabbinic niche is in pastoral care rather than any full-time pulpit. As a trained bereavement facili- tator, he brings his expertise to senior centers and hospices, and provides support for all who must resolve issues of grief and loss — the terminally ill, their families, and caregivers. He's also certified in mediation and anger resolution therapy and, as a victim chaplain, trained to respond to violent crimes and disasters; he traveled to Israel in the summer of 2004 for army training in responses to terrorist attacks and situations with mass fatalities, and locally was called to help at the scene of the bus explosion in the wake of Hurricane Rita.

And, as Carolyn Starman Hessel of Jewish Book World points out, the roster of publishers is evolving as much as the books they publish. According to her estimate, about 160 new Jewish children's titles were published last year, by a growing number of mainstream and religious publishers. This reflects a national growth among religious-themed books. Ilene Cooper, the children's book editor of Booklist, a trade magazine published by the Amer- ican Library Association, says that several years ago, Booklist began publ...

And can it go it alone, as it did against Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor in 1981? Most leading Israeli pundits are skeptical. And some fear election rhetoric could compromise Israeli policy hurt Israel's international standing and generally prove counterproduc- tive, Iranian statements over the past few months underline just how dan- gerous the threat to Israel could be. In October, Iran's hard-line Pres- ident Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Israel should be "wiped off the map," and earlier this month he said Israel should be dismantled and re- established in Europe. Israeli officials say a bomb in the hands of leaders with ideas like these adds up to a rogue regime with a predisposition and the means to destroy Israel. Israel's dilemma is acute: how to get the internation...

Along with the encouraging early report, Pacesetters heard a message of hope and personal responsibility from George Zimmer, who is the founder, chairman and chief executive officer of The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. Zimmer built his $ 1.7-billion business around the advertising slogan, "I guar- antee it!" Zimmer gave everyone a copy of "The Soul of Money," written by a friend, Lynne Twist.

The former commander of the Israeli air force, reserve Maj. Gen. Eitan Ben-Eliyahu, said that if there is an attack some time in the future, Israel would only be part of a larger force — partly because the job is just too big for Israel to handle alone. Reuven Pedatzur, a strategist at the Netanya Academic College, said he doubts that any such joint action will ever materialize. Nor is it likely that Israel or any of the other players will take action to stop Iran alone. Israel's deterrent capacity is impressive. Its Arrow anti-missile defense system is the most advanced of its kind in the world. Israel, according to foreign sources, also has an impressive second-strike capability: F-15 fighter bombers that can reach Iran without refuel...

Jordan TBILISI, Georgia (]TA 'i — In one of the most affluent pockets of a Soviet Union that vowed to eradicate class differences, Maia Bartkulashvili and Lev Mikhailovich Neiman once enjoyed very different standards of living in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. Take the size of their apartments, where they continue to live today Bartkulashvili, 79, a retired Russian-language teacher, lives in the same spartan, one-room apartment she was raised in. Unmarried, she shared the place with her older brother, David, until his death five months ago. Neiman, on the other hand, lived a life of relative privilege: He was the lead violin soloist in the Tbilisi Opera House for a half-century, while his wife was a ballerina there for 25 years. The opera gave the couple an elegant, three-room apart...

"As it stands right now, we simply can't offer non-Nazi victims levels of ser- vices that are even close to what we can provide for those classified as victims." Those who approach JDC for help in the former Soviet Union must fill out a questionnaire spelling out where they were during the war and what they were doing. A locally appointed committee then deter- mines the application's validity Then the unseemly question is posed: Did this person suffer enough to qualify? "It's a terrible situation — to have to decide who shall live, who shall die," Schwager says. The breakdown of JDC clients in the former Soviet Union between Nazi victims and non-Nazi victims is roughly even. In Georgia, how- ever, just 110 of nearly 2,500 Hesed clients are Nazi...

"And it was when her soul was departing, because she was dying, that she called his name Ben-Oni (the son of my travail); and his father called him Ben Yamin (the son of my right hand)" (Gen. 35:27) Is it not strange that father Jacob would change his son's name from the one given by his beloved wife in such difficult circumstances? And why do we read in the very next verse, "And Rachel died; and she was buried on the road to Efrat, which is Bethlehem"? Gen. (35:28) After all, Efrat is barely 15 miles from Hebron, the ancestral burial place. Why not travel the extra distance and bury her together with the Abrahamic family, next to the hus- band who worked so hard for her hand in marr...
