\Main assembly hall of new Jewish Campus with seating capacity of450.
A Jewish Campus that will
house the Federation and Family

Geneva Conference Reaffirms
Lebanon's 'Sovereign' Statehood
By TAMAR LEVY
GENEVA (JTA) -
The conference aimed at
| national reconciliation in
Lebanon has produced a
draft agreement which de-
fines Lebanon as "a sov-
ereign state" which "be-
longs to the Arab world"
and "is a founding and
active member of the Arab
League."
It was not immediately clear
whether all of the parties to the
Lebanese conflict were in agree-
ment on the text or whether it
implies renunciation of the with
drawal and security agreement
signed by Lebanon and Israel
last May 17.
THE DRAFT text reads:
"Lebanon is a sovereign state,
independent and united in its
land, its people and its institu-
tions inside borders defined by
the Lebanese Constitution and
internationally recognized. It be-
longs to the Arab world, it is a
founding and active member of
the Arab League. It is bound bv
all those treaties and the State
will apply these principles in all
domains, without exception."
Sources close to President
Amin Gemayel said the draft
agreement changes nothing with
respect to the accord with Israel
and suggested that it was com-
posed as an incentive to Oruze
leader Walid Jumblatt not to
walk out of the conference.

Israel Votes With U.S. at UNations
By YITZHAK RABI
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) Israel waa one of a
handful of countries to join with the United States in
opposing a General Assembly resolution deeply
deploring" Americas "armed intervention m Grenada.
The vote was 108-9, with 27 abstentions. Those voting
against the resolution included Antigua and Barbuda,
Barbados, Dominica, El Salvador, Jamaica, Saint Lucia
and Saint Vincent, and the Grenadines.
AMBASSADOR Yehuda Blum of Israel, in response
to a question by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency on
Israel's vote, said: "As a result of Israel's own experience
we naturally understand and identify with all other states
who are confronted with the danger of subversion and
destabilization. Certainly all states must be guaranteed
the freedom to elect their own government and determine
their own future without fear of external subversion."
Obstacle to Peace
Administration Blows Hot and Cold About Israel
NEW YORK- (JTA)-
America's continued "hot
and cold" policy toward Is-
rael and the dominant pro-
Arab voices in the State
Department were described
here as obstacles to achiev-
ing lasting peace in the
Middle East.
In remarks prepared for deliv-
ery to the Synagogue Council of
America's annual Covenant of
Peace Award dinner, Rabbi
Mordecai Waxman, Council pres-
ident, said, "We are disturbed by
Israel Bonds Board of
Governors in Formation
Julie Jackson, field representa-
tive for the South County Israel
Bonds drive announced that the
Board of Governors is now being
formed.
According to Jackson, "The
Board of Governors is a prestig-
ious group of Jewish community
leaders who are interested in Is-
rael's economic development
through the purchase of Israel
Bonds." Jackson continued to
stress the importance of Israel
Bonds and stated, "We must
help Israel meet a number of
pressing economic challenges in
this, Israel's 35th Anniversary
year."
The Board of Govenrors will
serve as an advisory board and
help with plans and offer advice
to the South County area. An
InauKural Breakfast is now being
planned for the first meeting of
the Board of Governors.
Four members of the board
have been announced and they
include: Leo E. Brink. Delray
Beach chairman; Martin Gross-
man, Boca Raton chairman;
James Baer. Boca Raton assoc-
iate chairman, and Edward
Bobick, Boca Raton associate
chairman.
Jackson also stated, "Israel
Bonds are a major source of de-
velopment capital for Israel,
having provided over $6 billion
since its inception to help build
every aspect of the nation's eco-
nomy. I am thrilled that the
South County Board of Gover-
nors will be comprised of
dynamic community leaders who
will help Israel Bonds achieve
even greater heights."
the hot and cold policy which
successive American Admin-
istrations have followed in rela-
tion to Israel allies and friends
must be consistent in their
behavior."
THE CONSERVATIVE Jew-
ish leader asserted that "the back
and forth shifts, the approval and
disapproval, the friendly today
and not very friendly tomorrow
U.S. attitude must end. Amer-
ican Presidents must stop listen-
ing to pro-Arabists in the State
Department and adopt a long-
range policy which will involve
Israel as an ally in the search for
a durable peace."
Waxman said that American
policy of recent years, whether
described as "even-handedneas
or re-evaluation, has served to
prevent stability in the Middle
East and has been harmful to any
peace process." He cited aa a re-
cent example the U.S. refusal to
accept Israel's "humanitarian of-
fer" to provide hospital care for
those marines wounded in the
Beirut bombing Oct. 23.
He added that the need for a
binding and firm relationship
with Israel in no way implies that
"America should not seek to have
good relations with various Arab
nations, or that it be totally un-
critical of Israeli policy." Despite
these reservations, Waxman
stated that American Jews were
Hwy. on Spanish River Blvd. in
Boca Raton, will be the site of the
new Jewish Campus.
The existing building will be
renovated and remodeled to meet
the needs of the Jewish Com-
munity Center, The Family
Service and the Federation. Two
tennis courts, a basketball court
and a junior Olympic swimming
pool will be added to the grounds.
The campus also affords open
play fields for various sports.
Marianne Bobick, president of
the Federation, indicates that the
contract provides that the church
will have use of the property until
Jan. 31, 1984, and that the
Jewish community can expect
occupancy sometime in February
or March. The contract to
purchase and the use of the land
is subject to approval by the
zoning authorities in the City of
Boca Raton.
Mrs. Bobick stated that due to
extremely favorable financing,
the Federation is able to purchase
this Jewish Campus with expen-
ditures being equal to what is
being spent for rentals on
ejBjjsjpM office space at the
Federation agencies. Mrs. Bobick
further said that the purchase of
this property waa facilitated by
the local branch of NCNB.
"NCNB made this economically
feasible by working with us and
demonstrating a commitment to
community service rarely found
in the financial world. NCNB has
been enormously helpful to the
local Jewish community."
By unanimous vote which
included a standing ovation by
the Board, the new campus will
be named the James and
Marjorie Baer Jewish Campus in
honor of the Federation's

On Sunday, Oct. 30, Leader-
ship Development 1984 convened
for an exciting day to learn about
the South County Jewish Com-
munity. Sixteen participants,
along with eleven of their
children, began with brunch,
singing and the grace after meals.
Margaret Kottler, Chairman of
the South County Jewish Feder-
ation Women's Division, was one
of the special guests. She came to
discuss the unique UJA Young
Leadership Conference to be held
in DC, March 11-13,1984.
At the Conference, young Jew-
ish leaders from all over the
country will gather to meet with
dignataries, politicians and
Judaic scholars to get a glimpse
of Washington as an insider and
first-hand.
The program of the day was
called "Our Local Jewish Com-

Director of the Jewish Commun-
ity Center of South County,
Spencer Gellert, Executive Di-
rector of the Jewish Family and
Children's Service and Burt Low-
licht. Director of the South Coun-
ty Jewish Community Day
School. Everyone on the panel
spoke for approximately ten
minutes about their respective
organizations.
The Leadership Development
participants were geared up and
challenged to hear of the growing
needs of the South County Jew-
ish Community and how these
needs are being met by the ser-
vices offered. For example, the
Day School has grown from an
enrollment last year of 60
children to the present 127
children (and still growing).
The Hot Meals Program serves
lunches both in service locations
and as a delivery service to those
who are homebound. The Jewish
Community Center has been org-
anized and is in the process of
developing programs for adults
and children including a singles
program with three age groups to
serve over 900 adults on their
mailing list. A group from the
Federation has just returned
having participated in one of the
most successful and inspiring
Missions to Israel ever.
Questions and answers were in
abundance as excitement was
generated about participating in
the community, whether that be
in the capacity of fundraising.
Missions, JCC, sending children
to the Day School, or using the
Jewish Family and Children,
Service. All Leadership DeveW
ment people and their families
can look forward to sharing iaj
celebrating Chanukah together in
a house party. The next program
will be held on Jan. 22,1984 when

rael Lobby in D.C.), will speak
about "Tfce Impact of AIPAC on
Jewish Survival."

-| Anti-Semitic Wave Hits Argentina
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) A world Jewish
leader decried what he
described as a new wave of
violence and anti-Semitism
in Argentina. Dr. Daniel
Thursz, executive vice
president of B'nai B'rith
International, said here
that his organization
"condemns these crude ex-
pressions of hatred" that he
indicated may have been
inspired by "rightwing ex-
tremists seeking to thwart
Argentina's return to
democratic rule."
Thursz was responding to
reports of rising sales of
tiruli'iilly anti-Semitic publica-
tions, anti-Jewish radio broad-
casts including one on a gov-
trnnunlowned station and
sporadic, but increasing, in-
cidents of mob violence. In one
such attack, which occurred this
year two days before Rosh Hash-
anah, more than one dozen people
carrying axes and other sharp
instruments, vandalized a syna-
gogue in the town of Commodoro
Rivadavia on Argentina's south-
east coast.
THE MOST visible signs of
rising anti-Semitism are the in-
creasing sales of anti-Jewish
publications, which have stepped
up their attacks on Jews, accord-
ing to reports from Buenos Aires.
Nu/.i and extreme rightwing
trails are openly sold in news-
paper kiosks throughout down-
town Buenos Aires. One book,
"The International Jew," sold
out within a few weeks of hitting
the stands, kiosk owners
reported.
In addition, several radio pro-
grams in Buenos Aires and the
provinces recently have featured
avowedly racist and Nazi
speakers, assailing Argentina's
Jewish community and Israel
and praising Adolf Hitler.
Jews have also been the target
of a stepped-up campaign of tele-
phone threats. Last month the
far-right Giacchino Commando
Group issued a communique
calling on Argentines to arm
themselves and fight the
traitors."
THURSZ SAID that "B'nai
B'rith recognizes that the politic-
al situation in Argentina is fluid
and that the government is in a
state of transition. We offer our
fullest support for the elections of
Oct. 30," which were to install
the first democratically elected
government in a decade. "We
firmly believe that democracy is
the best safeguard of the rights of
Jews, other minorities, and all
Argentinians."

to resolve. However, he believed
that this can be accomplished
during the next few months.
He stressed that U.S. foreign
policy "must contain a peace plan
for the Middle East; U.S. inter-
ests require a peace process."
Habib added that "without a
plan for peace such rational Arab
states as Egypt and Jordan can-
not move towards the peace
table." The U.S. diplomat felt
that any American long-range
peace plan for the Middle East
should still be based on the Camp
David agreements and the pro-
posals set forth in September
1982 by Reagan.

Suicide Attack in Ture
Israel Beefs Up Security Measures
By GIL SEDAN
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA)
The Cabinet has begun
consideration of further se-
curity measures in south
Lebanon in the aftermath
of Friday's suicide truck
bomb attack on Israeli mil-
itary headquarters in Tyre.
Proposals to seal off south
Lebanon from the rest of
the country by closing the
Awali River bridges were
deferred to a later session
for decision at the request
of Premier Yitzhak Shamir.
According to Israeli army
figures, 28 Israeli soldiers and
border policemen and 32 Leba-
nese, mostly detainees awaiting
interrogation but some of them
employes at the Israeli installa-
tion, were killed. Of the 28 Israeli,
13 were Druze. Twenty-nine Is-
raelis and 12 Lebanese were
injured. Among the Lebanese
were relatives of the detainees
who had been waiting outside of
one of the buildings hit. Five per-
sons were extricated from the
rubble.
THE ATTACK was almost a
replica of the suicide truck
bombings that hit U.S. and
French military headquarters in
Beirut on Oct. 23, killing 230
American and 53 French service-
men and wounding scores more.
Israeli military sources said
the death toll at Tyre would have
been much higher had not a
border policeman guarding the
compound fired at the speeding
pick-up truck, killing the driver
and causing the explosives to
detonate outside rather than in-
side the building. The amount of
explosives contained in the truck
is still undetermined.
A group calling itself the "Is-
lamic Jihad" (Holy War! claimed
responsibility for the attack in
Tyre. It is the same group that
took credit for the attacks on the
multinational force in Beirut last
month and on the U.S. Embassy
there last April.
ISRAELI ARAB affairs
experts identified the group as
extremist Shiite Moslems, allied
to Iranian Shiites. They have
been fighting alongside the
Syrians and elements of the Pal-
estine Liberation Organization
against the Lebanese army.
Israel launched swift retalia-
tion for the attack which occurred
at 6 a.m.. local time, Friday.
Waves of Israeli fighter-bombers
blasted Syrian and terrorist
targets at Behamdoun on the
Beirut-Damascus main highway
and Mansouriya, to the south.
These were described as terrorist
bases established after Israeli
forces evacuated the region two
months ago to more secure lines
south of the Awali River.
Reports from Beirut Friday
said tanks and three Syrian
artillery batteries were destroyed
in the bombing and strafing
attacks. An Israeli military
spokesman said all planes
returned safely to their bases.
SHAMIR WARNED that the
terrorist erred gravely if they
thought the attack would force
Israel's total withdrawal from
Lebanon. "We shall leave Leba-
non only once we are convinced
that our leaving will not unleash
waves of terror," he said. "We
are strong, and we shall not leave
Lebanon before we reach our
goals which are sovereignty for
the Lebanese and security for
Israel."
(A similar statement was made
in Geneva last week by David
Kimche, director general of the
Israeli Foreign Ministry. He told
reporters that if the Syrians
think Israel was too preoccupied
with its internal affairs and un-
willing to fight, they were badly
"misreading" the mood in Jeru-
salem. )
Shamir informed the Cabinet
that he had received a message
from President Reagan sent Fri-
day expressing the support of the
American people for Israel at this
grim hour. Reagan said he hoped
Soldiers Wounded by Explosive
Charges Detonated Near Vehicle
TEL AVIV (JTA) Three Israeli soldiers were
slightly wounded when an explosive charges detonated
near their vehicle on a road in south Lebanon east of the
Zaharani River. Concern is mounting, meanwhile, over the
fate of the six Israeli soldiers held prisoner by the
Palestine Liberation Organization because of renewed
fighting between PLO dissidents and forces loyal to Yasir
Arafat.
DEFENSE MINISTER Moshe Arens reiterated that
Israel holds the PLO and its leaders directly responsible
for the safety of the Israeli POWs. Reports from Beirut
said fierce fighting broke out near Tripoli in northern
Lebanon between pro-and -anti -Arafat elements of the
PLO, the latter aided by Syria.
The Syrians were said to be pounding residential
areas of Lebanon's second largest city and nearby camps
with GRAD and other missiles.
that America's "deep sense of
sympathy" with Israel in the
Tyre bombing would "ease the
loss that the people of Israel
feel."
THE PRESIDENT'S message
stated: "Today I participated in
a memorial service for the
casualties suffered by American
forces in Beirut. Our sense of loss
was made even greater by the
knowledge that your forces have
suffered today casualties in the
same kind of terrotist attack."
News of the Tyre bombing
reached the President at Camp
LeJeune.i N.C., where he was at-
tending services for the Marine
dead.
U.S. Undersecretary of State
Lawrence Eagleburger, who was
in Jerusalem Friday after win-
ding up two days of talks with
Israeli officials, described the
attack as "murderous terrorism
of the worst kind" and said every
effort should be made to stamp
out such acts.
The Cabinet was briefed on the
Tyre attack by Chief of Staff
Gen. Moshe Levy, Air Force
Commander Gen. Amos Lapidot,
and chief of military intelligence,
Gen. Ehud Barak. The meeting
opened with the ministers rising
for a minute of silence for the
dead in Tyre. Shamir offered his
condolences to the bereaved fam-
ilies and wished the wounded a
speedy recovery.
DISCUSSION of Finance
Minister Yigal Cohen-Orgad's
austerity program to resolve Is-
rael's severe economic crisis,
originally the top agenda item at
Sunday's Cabinet meeting, was
postponed until Monday when
the Cabinet convened again in
special session.
The ministers were divided
over the wisdom of sealing off the
Awali River bridges to improve
the security of Israel-occupied
south Lebanon. Some senior min-
isters objected to the idea for fear
of negative political and security
implications.
Shamir, Defense Minister
Moshe Arens and Deputy Pre-
mier David Levy were said to
have argued that a closure would
not guarantee an end to
sabotage. Interior Minister Yosef
Burg and Science Minister Yuval
Neeman urged total segregation
of south Lebanon from the north.
Although Shamir postponed a
decision, the military is applying
stricter controls over the Awali
bridges. Traffic has been sharply
curtailed but the crossings
remain open for the time being.
ISRAEL IS also expected to
launch a campaign among the
Shiites in south Lebanon to warn
them against assisting terrorists
while reiterating Israel's interest
in maintaining a good relation-
ship with that community.
The suicide attack caused ex-
tensive damage to the military
headquarters compound. One
building, housing general securi-
ty services, was completely
demolished. Another, housing
border policemen, was partially
destroyed as was a third where
Arab detainees were being held.
One ot the buildings served as
a storage for explosives which
continued to detonate after the
initial blast, complicating rescue
operations. The dead and
wounded were pulled from the
rubble within 12 hours by a new
technique, developed after a gas
leak caused an explosion which
destroyed an Israel army head-
quarters building in Tyre a year
ago. with heavy loss of life.
SPECIAL equipment was
flown in from Tel Aviv to help in
the rescue work. This included
specially designed pneumatic
lifts capable of raising concrete
slabs of up to 20 tons, inflatable
rubber pillows to support the
slabs while the wounded were ex-
tricated, and long tubes to pump
oxygen into the rubble.
Lt. Col. Aharon Gonem, the
army spokesman for the Sidon
region, said the same equipment
was offered to the American
forces in Beirut after the bom-
bing of the Marine headquarters
on October 23. The Israeli offer of
technical and medical aid wu|
rejected by the U.S.
Eye-witnesses to Friday's at-1
tack, which occurred shortly after)
dawn, said an unidentified pick-
up truck was seen speeding I
toward the headquarters com-l
pound, zigzagging between con
crete blocks which had been I
erected as a security measure.
A BORDER policeman, identi-1
fied an Nakad Sarbach, opened
fire on the vehicle as it swerved
ulong the approach road. He said |
later he believed he shot
killed the drive before the vehicleI
blew up just short of the head-1
quarters buildings. Sarbach him-
self was hurled into the air by the I
blast but was alert enough to re-
capture several Arab prisoners |
who had seized the opportunity
to try to escape. Doctors said |
Sarbach, who was treated for in-
juries, suffered nothing worse |
than punctured eardrums.
The dead and wounded wereall
identified by Saturday morning.
Israel army burial squads assist- i
ed in identifying the Lebanese
victims whose bodies were turned
over to the International Red
Cross to be returned to next of |
kin for internment.
A hoard of inquiry was imme- i
diately set up by Chief of Staff
Levy to study the lessons of the
attack. An immediate measure
taken was the replacement of the |
concrete blocks by phalanxes of.
parked vehicles around thef
perimeter of the military
quarters.

JERUSALEM (JTA)
Undersecretary of State
Lawrence Eagleburger has
concluded talks here with
top Israeli officials on
closer political and stra-
tegic coordination between
Israel and the U.S., and ap-
parently the talks went
well.
Israeli sources disclosed that a
high level Israeli ministerial del-
egation will visit Washington in
"the next couple of weeks." They
did not say who would comprise
the delegation, but it may include
Premier Yitzhak Shamir. Shamir
told a visiting group of Israel
Bond leaders here last week that
he hoped to confer with President
Reagan in the not too distant
future.
THE SOURCES characterized
the talks with Eagleburger as
good and thorough and focused
mainly on Lebanon. Eagleburger,
who is Undersecretary for Poli-
tical Affairs and the third rank-
ing diplomat at the State Depart-
ment, said the U.S. believes Syria
eventually will agree to an
arrangement that will preserve
lA-banon's sovereignty and in-
tegrity.
He said the U.S. was doing
everything in its power to make
the Lebanese national reconcilia-
tion talks a success.
According to Eagleburger, Sy-
ria's attitude toward the Leban-
ese ceasefire has changed of late
from outright rejection to a
growing recognition that the
multinational force in Beirut and
the Lebanese government intend
to stand firm and defend it.
He insisted, however, that this
assessment does not contradict
Washington's deep suspicion
that Syria, or certain Syrian of-
ficials, knew in advance of the
terrorist bomb attack on U.S.
Marine headquarters in Beirut
Oct 23 which took the lives of
230 American servicemen and
wounded scores more.
EAGLEBURGER said the
U.S. was still examining the
evidence and had very persuasive
proof that Iranians were involved
in the attacks on the U.S. ana
French military headquarter*
Hut he would not say whether tM
Iranians were agents <
country or irregulars
Other U.S. sources here ijjj
that President Reagan I pW

the outrage was a matter i

Iarael were jointly pUnnin.
retribution, then to be it.
The sources asserted, however,
that the U.S. will in no way see*
Israeli help of involvement in any
punitive measures it might con
template. 'This is our business,
the sources said.
EAGLEBURGER strongly *
firmed American support for t
May 17 withdrawal and secunty
agreement between Israel i
Lebanon in his talks with Shtfg j
Ministry
and top roreign m' j

SL the Women's Division
2, Bobick said, "Because of
!' dedication, work and
^mmitment of James and
Mariorie. we now have a cohesive
wish community. Jim truly is
,5- founder of our Federation.
Naming the campus for Jim and
Margie is but a small token
-fleeting our gratitude and
Aspect for their continuing
leadership"
Mrs. Bobick indicated that the
new campus on Spanish River
n|vd is intended to meet the
needs of the South County
Jewish community for the
interim period until the projected
20 acre Jewish Campus can be
built in western Boca Raton. On
the larger campus a major Jewish
Community Center as well as
expanded Day School, Family
! Service and recreational facilities
will be provided. Mrs. Bobick
further commented. "We are
indebted to Dick Siemens for the
donation of the 20 acres of land
on State Road 441 that will
ultimately house the Jewish
Community Campus. However
projections indicate that this will
not be a reality in the immediate
futun since much effort will have
to be expended within the Jewish
community to raise the needed
capital funds. The Spanish River
Boulevard Campus is intended to
meet the immediate needs of our
expanding Jewish community
which should not wait three to
five years, or whatever time it
will take to build the larger in-
stallation."
Mrs. Bobick continued, "By
the purchase of this property on
Spanish River Boulevard the
Jewish community is making
history in South County. We will
have an area that is suitable in
the near future to service the
immediate needs of the Jewish
community. We finally will have
an outstanding campus for Camp
Maccabee next summer. Our
newly formed Jewish Community
Center will thrive within this
Jewish Campus. The Federation
offices and the Family Service
will gain added space that is
needed, and our Day School will
have expansion room from its
present building which is only 2'/a
blocks away. What is most
important about the James and
Marjorie Baer Jewish Campus is
that it brings our central Jewish
communal institutions together
fostering unity and allowing
interaction between the various
agencies of the Federation."

Campus will sit.

Campaign Training Seminar Kicks-Off
UJA/ Federation Men's Campaign
On three recent evenings, 40 of
the Men's Campaign leaders as-
sembled to sharpen their skills
and to study the needs of world
Jewry and Israel for the 1984
UJA-Federation Campaign.
This in depth training seminar
for the chairmen of divisions and
areas within the Men's campaign
was moderated by Dr. Larry
Charme, the chairman of the
Men's Division.
Dr. Charme directed an inten-
sive training program these three
evenings that concentrated on
the needs of world Jewry, the
commitment of the chairmen, and
their skills in their message to
their workers and to the people
within their areas. Dr. Charme is
state-wide chairman for worker
training for the United Jewish
Appeal and a past member of the
Young Leadership Cabinet.
Assisting in the evenings was
Dora Koth, a Holocaust survivor
and a top liaison for Project Re-
newal in the State of Israel.
The division chairmen who
participated in the seminars also
heard Gladys Weinshank, Gener-
al Campaign Chairman, speak of
the totality of the campaign.
In commenting on the three
training sessions, Dr. Larry
Charme said, "Commitment it-
self is not enough. We have to
translate this love of Judaism
and other Jews into effective ac-
tion. The key word is effective.
We are attempting to train our
leadership so that they can com-
municate within their divisions
the need for continued support of
Israel and Jews throughout the
world. We have fantastically
devoted Jews heading our divi-
sions. I have been inspired by
their commitment throughout
these training sessions."

Eastern Europe (Ashkenazim). It
was brought over with the Jewish
immigrants from Russia and
Poland, at the turn of the
century, and filled the streets of
the Lower East Side and other
Jewish neighborhoods at
weddings and landsmanshaftn
social balls.
Though dormant for some
time, there is a strong revival of
interest in this art form through-
out the Jewish community.
Significant in its symbolism, this
music expresses ties to the ethnic
heritage that Jewish men and
women in the Soviet Union can
not now enjoy.

composed of four uniquely

An exciting event has occurred
at the South County Jewish Fed-
eration. On Tuesday, Oct. 26, a
first kickoff meeting of the Family
Division Campaign Cabinet was
) held at the Federation office. This
was a particularly special meet-
ing because for the first time in
the history of the South County
Jewish Federation, the Family
Division has its own chairman
1 separate from the Men's and
Women's Divisions.
This separation has developed
to meet the growing needs of our
family areas. Appointed as its
chairman is Benjamin Bussin,
along with four associate chair-
men (Henry Chasen, Al Krop,
Morris W. Morris, and Charlie
Seibel) and a Special Events
chairman (Joe S. Schenk). Milton
Krestsky will be serving as the
chairman of this year's Family
Division Luncheon.
Present at this meeting (in
addition to Benjamin Bussin, Al
Krop, Morris W. Morris, Charlie
Seibel, Joe S. Schenk, and Milton
Kretsky) were Gladys Wein-
shank, general chairman of the
1984 Federation-UJA Cam-
paign), Gloria Massry (chairman
of Super Sunday 1984), Sam
Eckstein (Highpoint), Hy
Henkin (co-chairman of Century
Village), Ben Karpen (co-chair-
man with Morris W. Morris of
Palm Greens No. II), Harold Kay
(Leisureviue), Al Ostrick (chair-
man of Villages of Oriole), Irving
Seid (chairman of Coco Wood
Lakes), Arnold Waldman (chair-
man of Lago Del Ray) and Lester
Weinberg (co-chairman of Coco
Wood Lakes).
The slogan "Give to Life" was
announced as the theme for the
1964 Family Division Campaign
An innovative idea was
presented in which all contribu-
tors to the South County Jewish
Federation Family Division
Campaign will receive blue and
white decal, picturing a chai in a
Torah Scroll, to put on one's
door, window or car. The purpose
of this decal will be to show pride
in one's gift and to show others
.that they have given to a very
worthy cause.
All participants at the meeting
were very excited about the
prospect of using the decals.
Among the events discussed
were the Family Division Lunch-
eon, the UJA Synagogue Sab-
baths, the Temple Breakfasts, as
well as, Super Sunday.
Also discussed at length was
the Theory of Solicitation. Bussin
placed an emphasis on education
as the key to the Campaign.
Weinshank stressed the goal of at
least $2 per week from each con-
tributor. "Let no Jew suffer
because of me-you," said Wein-
shank.
Great enthusiasm was gen-
erated st this meeting as all the
chairmen shared their thoughts
and expressed their creative
ideas. Under the experienced and
capable leadership of Benjamin
Bussin and his Associates and
chairmen, the community can
look forward to and expect a
most successful campaign for the
Pamfly Division.

Rabbi Joseph Noble
"Your name shall no longer be Ya-akov, but Yiara-El"
By RABBI JOSEPH NOBLE
The Torah portion read this Shabbat deals with our patriarch
Jacob. Jacob prepares to meet his brother Esau from whom he
fled after Esau threatened his life accusing him of stealing their
hther"s blessing. There is a strange story in the Torah of the
night before this eventful meeting. "That same night, he (Jacob)
arose, and taking his two wives, his two maidservants, and his
eleven children, crossed the ford of Jabbok (probably so named
after this incident). Jacob was left alone and a "man" wrestled
with him until the break of dawn. When he saw that he had not
prevailed against him, he wrenched Jacob's hip at the socket.
Then he said: Let me go for dawn is breaking. Jacob answered: I
will not let you go unless you bless me. What is your name? he
asked. He replied: Ya-akov. Said he: Your name shall no longer
be Ya-akov, but Yisra-El for you have striven with beings divine
and human and had prevailed."
Many explanations have been offered trying to understand
these events. To some, the entire story has but one purpose
the origin of the prohibition not to eat "the thigh muscle that is
on the socket of the hip, since Jacob's hip socket was wrenched
at the thigh muscle." The Jerusalem Aramaic Tar gum
translates: Jacob fought with a man an angel in the form of
man. In Biblical accounts, this not unusual like the three angels
who appeared to Abraham in human form. The difficulty all face
is an answer to the question: why was Jacob's name changed
twice and so close to each other? Each change has within it a dif-
ferent reason and thus changes the Hebrew origin of the name
Yisra-El. The first change is derived from "fought with God
(angel) and with men" and the second probably from "prince of
God." Maimonides claims that the entire incident was a pro-
phetic vision.
I would like to think along with the Commentators who felt
that this was a struggle our Patriarch Jacob had within himself.
After staying away for twenty years, Jacob prepares to come
home; but in doing so, he must meet up with his brother Esau
from whom he escaped. He sends his wives and children across
the river and he is left alone. Alone with God; alone with
himself. All night he struggles with his fears; all night he
struggles with his faith. Remaining alone in the dead of night,
he suddenly realized that he must make peace with himself be-
fore he faces Esau. His conscience bothered him. Did he do the
right thing having Esau sell his birthright for "bread and lentil
soup"? Did he do the right thing disguising himself as Esau to
receive their father's blessing? Even though his mother con-
vinced him that it was he and not Esau who was destined to
carry on their father's tradition, was it morally right to deceive
and old, nearly-blind father? Jacob had to eradicate these
thoughts of guilt before he met Esau. All night he struggled
with his conscience. Even his father told Esau, "Your brother
came with guile and took away your blessing." To which Esau
replied, "Is he not rightly named Ya-akov? First he took away
my birthright and now he has taken away my blessing."
All night long, he struggled. He no longer wants to be Ya-
akov the conniver. He must remove that image before he faces
his brother. It was a long silent night; but the night of struggle
was not in vain. When dawn came Jacob felt strong in his faith.
Gone were the doubts. Jacob proved himself a worthy successor
to Abraham and Isaac. Prom that moment on, he was no longer
Ya-akov the man who succeeded over his opponents by his
wits, by his cleverness and shrewdness. From now on, he is
Yisra-El the man who came through with fuH faith.
There is a great lesson for all of us in this Biblical account.
How many of us struggle with guilt feelings because we are not
truly honest with ourselves even in acts which seem justifiably
permissable but are ethically or morally wrong? How often do
we condone our wrongdoings by believing that "the means
justify the end"? We must think twice before we so act because
somehow, sometime it will plague us and we will have to account
to ourselves and live by these acts.
We must struggle with whatever Ya-akov-thoughts we have
of ourselves, cleanse our conscience, and ultimately emerge
Yisra-El a prince of God.
ZOA Holds Southeast
Regional Elections of Officers
The Southeast Region of the
Zionist Organization of America
met in the classic setting of the
Boca West Country Club (Boca
Raton) to elect a slate of officers
for the 1983-1985 term. The
meeting was attended by over 60
regional leaders who represented
districts in North Carolina, South
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama,
Mississippi and Florida.
Elected were: Rabbi Samuel
Silver of Del ray Beach as
regional president; Rabbi Irving
Lehrman of Miami Beach as
regional vice president; Hon. Ben
Kaplan of Hollywood as regional
treasurer; Hon. Bernadt Oolie of
Lauderhill as regional recording
secretary; Dr. Alvin Colin of Fort
Lauderdale as regional corres-
ponding secretary; and Hon.
Alan Taffet of Jacksonville as
chairman of the board.
Elected as area vice presidents
were Mrs. Rose Shapiro of Miami
(Dade); Mrs. Anne Rosen thai of
Hallandale (Broward); Mr. Irv-
Rabbi Sam Silver
ing Seid of Delray Beach (Palm
Beach); and Dr. Joseph Honig-
man of Jacksonville (Jack-
sonville).
'Silent no more'
Soviet Jewry update
Ninety-one Jews left the Soviet
Union in October, the lowest '
monthly figure since January.
This brings the total for the year
to 1,162, les than half that for the
first ten months of 1982.
Suffering from acute hypertro-
phy of the left ventricle, former
heart attack victim POC ALEK-
SANDR PARITSKY was taken
to the camp's hospital on Oct. 4.
Since then, he has neither re-
ceived nor sent any letters. An
October meeting with his wife,
POLINA, was cancelled because
he "failed to show up for daily
physical training;" a brief en-
counter chaperoned by a guard is
scheduled for Dec. 23.
Charging that the cancellation
is a violation of Soviet law,
Polina sent protest letters to the
authorities demanding that she
be able to renew her correspond-
ence with her husband and send
him warm clothes. Their 17 year-
old daughter DORINA, mean-
while, was denied permission to
continue her education.
A two-part feature in the
Vladimir Party Daily vilified
POC IOSIF BEGUN. Headlined
"Formula for Treason: the
Failure of Another International
Zionist Operation," the article
claimed that he was refused
permission to emigrate for
"security reasons," and that he
"chose" to commit "serious
crimes" against the state. Unable
to find a lawyer, Begun is prepar-
ing his appeal himself after
having received an official copy
of the verdict. The deadline for
submitting the appeal was
extended.
Informed that he will never re-
ceive a telephone, former POC
BORIS CHERNOBILSKY was
refused for reasons that were
"well known to him." Having re-
ceived no letters over the past
year, his mail has also apparently
been cut off. The KGB has
stepped up its harassment by
making periodic calls to his
supervisor at work.
Leningrad Hebrew teacher
YAKOV OORODETSKY asked
the authorities to "release" him
, from his Soviet citizenship so
that he can emigrate to Israel. In
other news from Leningrad,
several Hebrew classes were dis-
rupted and the names of all
present were recorded.
In the last two years there has
been a great interest and re-
surgence of membership in the
Zionist Organization of America
throughout the Southeast
Region. Dr. Michael Leinwand,
regional director, attributes this
growth to a better understanding
by the Jewish community in its
needs to express its will concern-
ing Israel through an organiza-
tion that devotes its full time
energies to the strengthening of
Israel.
The ZOA has led the Jewish
people in America for the last 85
years in their ongoing mission of
maintaining an independent and
secure Israel. ZOA has been the
outspoken leader in the develop-
ment of strong ties between Is-
rael and the United States. It has
focused all of its activities to
educating the Jewish and Chris-
tian communities to the impor-
tance of Israel as the one true
friend and ally of the United
States in the Middle East.
The meeting ended with the
following resolutions which were
passed unanimously:
Request the President of the
United States to support Israel in
its quest for peace in Lebanon.
Request the United States
Congress to continue United
States financial aid to Israel as a
vital component of United States
foreign policy.
The Southeast Region is
outraged by the unjust treatment
of Russian Jews who are being
denied their rights to immigrate
to join their families in Israel. We
ask the United States Congress
to call upon the Soviet Union to
discontinue its cultural genocide
and persecution of its Jewish
minority.
We support the President in
his efforts not to allow terrorism
to become the determining factor
in the Middle East in general and
specifically in Lebanon.
Dedicated to Serving our Jewish Community'"
