BBtn Arab World Reacts To Israeli Elections PARIS (JTA).-The Arab world appeared to take an almost perverse satisfaction in the failure of the Israeli elections to give a clear-cut vie- . tory to either Labor oi Likud. A survey of the Arabic press arid reports by the French media from Arab capitals indicated a degree of relief that the Labor Party, widely assumed to be more amenable to compromise than its rival, was not given a mandate to form the next government. This attitude was especially strong in Syria where the French press quoted officials as saying that the election of Labor Party leader Shimon Peres to be Prime Minister probably would . have given new impetus to the Reagan "peace plan" of Sept. 1,1982, which excluded Syria. It would have resulted, these sources said, in a new American attempt to push Israel and Jordan into negotiations from which Syria would be excluded; Election Results Disappointing © West Bank Arab Leaders Sakharov's stepdaughter, Tatyana Yankelevich, is discussing the fate of her parents with former President Jimmy Carter in San Franciso.

Sakharov's Stepdaughter In San Francisco During Democratic Convention Tatyana Yankelevich, the stepdaughter of Soviet human rights activist Andrei Sakharov, was in San Francisco during the Democratic House Hospice Unit Is Part Of Expansion Plans The philosophy of Heritage Village to provide a "Life With Dignity" assumes increased significance for those members of the community who must cope with the realization that they, or a loved one, are dying. The Heritage House Hospice unit has been designed to meet the special needs of those persons in the final phases of terminal illness. When completed, Heritage House will be the only skilled nursing facility in this area and only one of a handful of long term care facilities in the country to offer residential hospice care. The continuous staffing and therapeutic programs enhance the quality of life during one's-illness and provide emotional, sprititual and social supports to the family Unit. Medical, therapeutic and conselling staff provide continuous loving attention to the dying older adult, as well as to his or her family. The nine-room wing will be located on the new 50-bed nursing unit and will also include a kitchenette and overnight accommodations for family members. The creation of the hospice unit is only one of the many important components of "We Are Their Children," the Heritage House Expansion Program. Additional therapeutic areas for the Special Care Pavilion, the creation of four dining areas and a modernized kitchen and the long-awaited addition of multipurpose program areas for the home's residents are also major aspects of the expansion plans. "The Heritage Villlage Auxiliary looks forward to being involved in the building and expansion of Heritage House, which includes this sensitive approach to the physical and psychological needs of the dying person," states Betty Tieman, auxiliary past president and co-chairwoman of the Auxiliary Division of the "We Are Their Children" Campaign. Members of the Heritage Village Auxiliary who would like to learn about the hospice program or any other components of the Expansion Program should contact Mrs. Tieman at 891-2981. fr Tisha x B'av 9th Day of Av August 7,1984 Fast Day Commemorating The Destruction Of The Ancient Temple & Jerusalem' 1 2.500 Years Ago Convention seeking support for her parents, neither of whom have been seen since early May. Prior to her arrival in San Francisco, Yankelevich learned from "reliable sources in Moscow" that her stepfather has been administered mind-altering drugs for the past month and-a-half in a closed hospital ward in Gorky, 250 miles east of Mos- (CONT.INUED ON PAGE 10) ry...- t JERUSALEM (JTA) - West Bank Arab leaders are disappointed by the inconclusive'results of Israel's July 23 elections. While most of them had taken an aloof attitude, maintaining that there is little difference between Labor and Likud as far as Palestinians are concerned, it was clear last week that a Labor victory had been hoped for to ease the tense atmosphere in the territory'and perhaps, increase chances |for a political settlement. Mayor Elias Freij of Bethlehem, one of the few West Bank leaders who had publicly expressed his hope for a Labor victory before the elections, said that he was not only disappointed but depressed. "There is not much hope now for the residents of the occupied territories," he said. He was seriously disturbed by the election of Rabbi Meir Kahane to the Knesset which he described as "a dangerous and ugly"phenomenon. According to[ Freij, "Kahane" is a~ racist," calling for the expul- ^ sion of Arabs from the land where they have lived for centuries. How could that happen?" he asked. Freij expressed some satisfaction with the success of the Arab-Jewish Progressive List for Peace, a new. faction which won two Knesset seats in its first try for parliament. But Al Quds, the leading Arabic daily in-East Jerusalem, observed that no government that may emerge from the elections would be strong or stable enough to take bold decisions. The leftist Arabic daily A- Shaab said the elections gave the government a mandate to continue the "policy of repression" in the territories. One of its editors told the Israeli daily, Haaretz, "We now fear for the fate of our holy places, especially the Al Aksa mosque and the Tomb of the Patriarchs after the rise of extreme fanatics in Israel^ particularly Kahane's party." Bashir Barghuti, leader of the Communist Party on the West Bank, said the election results showed that Israel was suffering a deep ideological, political and economic crisis. It also showed, according to Barghuti that there is hardly any interest among the Israeli public to seek a solution of the Middle East conflict. Cantor Chomsky To Conduct Special Tisha B'Av Service Monday evening, Aug. 6, at 8:30 p.m., Cantor Jack Chomsky of Congregation Tifereth Israel, will conduct a special service to mark the start of Tisha B'Ay, the 9th day of Av. Traditionally, Eicha, the - Lamentations■- of Jeremiah, are read on Tisha B'Av. Cantor Chomsky will be assisted in the mournful renditions of this book by several congregants, Dr. Jerry Benis, Anne Bonowitz, Jennifer Field, Shari Robins and Pam Swedlow. ~ Jewish Organizations Develop Strategy, Policy To Deal With Equal Access Law Jr NEW YORK (JTA) - The National Jewish Community Relations Advisory. Council (NJCRAC), representing a wide range, of 11 national Jewish organizations and 111 local Jewish Community Relations Councils, is arranging for seminars in eight cities to work out policy and strategy at the local level for dealing with the effects of the newly-enacted equal access law, Albert Chernin, NJCRAC executive vice chairman, reported last week. The proposal, approved by the Senate last May, and approved 337-77 by the House in ' a second vote on the measure, would permit religious groups, to hold meetings in public schools; but only before and after regular class hours. Since President Reagan, at his July 24 press conference, listed the measure as one of six'he particularly wanted adopted by Congress before adjournment, his signature is assured. Chernin told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that the NJCRAC planned to hold a consultation in New York City on Sept. 9 with the American Jewish Congress, to coordinate the eight regional conferences. The AJCongress, in a statement denouncing the House action*, said it would ' 'carry the fight to the courts to have this legislation invalidated." An AJCongress spokesman told the JTA it was. too early to determine how such a fight would be implemented. Many Jewish officials questioned by the JTA noted that one of the problems involved yras that the issue would not be joined until the 1984-85 school year begins and planned monitoring started of such public access by church groups would indicate whether fears of Jewish groups of proselytizing of Jewish school children materialized. Agudas Achim Sets Service On Monday evening, Aug. 6, the Agudas Achim Synagogue will usher in Tisha B'AVj a fast commemorating the destruction of the Temple, "at;a Candlelight, Service in the sanctuary at 8:30 p.m. Rabbi Alan G. Ciner will lead the Service. Moises Herszage will read "Eicha." Cantor Baruch Shifman will sing the liturgical selections.

Continuing the tradition of last year, families are invited to participate in this service so that all may recall a moment in history. Teens visiting from Jesse Cohen of Holon, Israel, will join the congregation in observance of Tisha' B'Av. The community is invited to attend. Cantor Jack Chomsky This year, Tisha B'Av coincides with Hiroshima Day. Cantor Chomsky has selected additional readings on the potential tragedy of nuclear annihilation. Members of the congregation will be invited to participate in these readings.
