He noted that there must be
more emphasis on "the collective

said, "will mean a new look at
things like pooling our resources,
creating new linkages, gearing up
to react to crisis, streamlining
and reallocating our human and
financial resources on the basis of

CITRIN, who was presenting
his "thoughts and perspectives
on the major goals of our North
American Jewish community"
after three years in office, made it
clear that the old way of doing
business zealously guarding
"local autonomy in setting
priorities and objectives" is no
longer adequate to meet current
and developing problems and op-
Citrin listed four major dev-
elopments which underline and
determine "our total Jewish
communities' changing needs
and priorities:
'"Today, 80 nations are
ranged against us and make
no mistake they are against us
as Jews and not just those of us

The Masada Division, part of the Men's Division in the
Federation-UJA Campaign, has been so named as a symbol of
the historically famous stand by the Zealots at Masada, and the
modern vow, "Masada shall never fall again."
This division holds a dinner during each year's campaign as
part of the Men's Division Major Gifts events, chaired this year
by Abner Levine. Attendance is open to those who pledged gifts
of $6,500 or more to the campaign.
Men's Division chair Larry S. Charme, MD, has appointed
Robert Rieder to chair the dinner for 1985. See Page 7 for the

Israel, Lebanon Talks Bog Down;
Lackluster Session Key to Deadlock
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
and Lebanese military teams
continued their talks at Nakura
under United Nations auspices.
But the search for an agreement
was sidetracked by Lebanese
charges that the Israelis were
undermining the negotiations for
the withdrawal of the Israel
Defense Force from south Leb-
anon and security for Israel's
northern borders.
In the latest development, the
head of the Lebanese delegation,
Gen. Mohammed Al-Haj, ac-
cused Israel of reneging on agree-
ments reached at previous ses-
sions. The Israelis rejected the
charge, and the talks recessed to
allow them to formulate an of-
ficial reply.
According to Al-Haj, Israel
has backed off from its earlier
agreement to allow the Lebanese
regular army to deploy in several
areas to be evacuated by the IDF
on grounds that those areas are
too close to the border. Al-Haj
also demanded a detailed map of
all Israeli deployments in south
Lebanon, an exact date for the
start of the IDF withdrawal and
a timetable for the pull-out of
Israeli troops.
The Israeli delegation present-
ed a detailed plan for security in
the northern sector between the
Awali and Zaharani rivers. Israel
proposed that the region be
staffed by the United Nations
Interim Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) but would not object if
Lebanese regulars were also de-
ployed in that region in conjunc-
tion with the UNIFIL force.
Israel has been insisting all
along, however, that the zone
closest to its border be policed by
the South Lebanon Army (SLA)
commanded by Gen. Antoine
Lehad, a largely Christian force
supported by Israel. The
Lebanese to date refuse to recog-
nize the SLA.

AS A RESULT, Citrin stated,
"We cannot deal with the

enemies of our nation of Israel, or
with the in-gathering of our

our disadvantaged, or the

The establishment of two en-
dowed professorships in Judaic
Studies at Yale University has
been made possible by a major
gift from the Jacob and Hilda
Blaustein Foundation of Balti-
more, according to A. Bartlet
Giamatti, Yale president.
Giamatti said the Jacob and
Hilda Blaustein chair in Hebrew
Language and Literature will be
held by a senior faculty member
and that the university seeks a
distinguished scholar for the
chair, expected to be named in
The second chair is the Jacob
and Hilda Blaustein Professor-
ship in Judaic Studies, specific-
ally for visiting scholars who will
hold the title for the term of then-
Yale appointments.
Ismar Schorsch, professor of
Jewish History at the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, is the first scholar to
hold this Chair. During the
current semester, Prof. Schorsch
is giving a course for undergra-
duates and a faculty seminar.
Giamatti said the Blaustein
Foundation gift is the largest
single gift to the S7.4 million
Judaic Studies Development
campaign at Yale. The campaign
has topped the 17 million mark
and is seeking funds to under-
write a curatorship of the uni-
versity's Judaic collections and
Started in 1980, Judaic Studies
is an interdisciplinary program in
the undergraduate college and
the graduate school. The
program was designed to make
use of the university's consider-
able resources, which include the
university's rare and extensive
Judaic a collections, as well as
courses in the literature and rel-
igious studies departments and
at Yale's divinity school.
This year there are eight un-
dergraduates majoring in Jud-
aica Studies and more than 600
students enrolled in the history,
literature, religious studies and
language courses which consti-
tute the program's field of study.

News Digest
The Jewish Week in an article
by Joseph Polakoff of Wash-
ington foresees a "change of atti-
tudes between Israel and U.S.
Jewry.*' The main example cited
is the establishment of a
Business Group for Middle East
Peace and Development by
wealthy U.S. Jews and some
Arab Americans. The group
plans to invest in banking, in-
dustry and hospitals in the
Administered Territories
(Judaea. Samaria and the Gaza
Strip). It is led by social psycho-
logist Stephen Cohen of CUNY,
who spent several years in a
study of Arab-Israeli relations
under grants from the U.S.
Agency for International
Development and the Ford
Foundation. While the Likud
government opposed establishing
a bank in the territories, the new
unity government under Premier
Shimon Peres and Defense Min-
ister Yitzhak Rabin is said to
favor it. as does the U.S. State
Other examples Polakoff cites:
the call by Dr. David Gordis.
executive head of the American
Jewish Committee, for an "equal
partnership" between Israel and
American Jewry; establishment
in the U.S. of an "Israel National
Fund" to aid in settlement of
Jews in the Administered Terri-
tories, since Israel is strapped for
funds: and the position taken by
the Jewish Federation of San
Francisco that it wants to have a
say on how Israel spends funds
raised in its campaign.
Another item of interest in The
Jewish Week: a story about
Brooklyn District Attorney
Elizabeth Holtzman joining with
Bishop Rene Valero and Beate
Klarsfeld to hunt for Nazi war
criminal Dr. Josef Mengele in
Paraguay. Mengele. who is
responsible for the death of more
than 400.000 Jews in Auschwitz
and for brutal "medical" experi-
ments, was a citizen of Paraguay
from 1959 until 1979. when his
citizenship was revoked. Holt-
zman, a former congress wo man.
and her companions planned to
meet with officials there to "get a
more satisfactory answer than
that they cannot locate him."
The S'ational Jewish Post and
Opinion reports in a front-page
article on an economic plan for
Israel outlined by economist
Daniel Doron at the General As-
sembly of the CJF in Toronto.
The plan, which the paper says
was heard by only a handful of
people, sounds remarkably
similar to the one outlined in the
pages of The Jewish Floridian of
South County last week by Dr.
Joseph Rom of the Technion.
Given Doron's credentials as an
economist, it seems that Israel
will eventually be forced to move
in that direction despite the
government's reluctance;
c I especially since, as Doron put it
"the Israeli people are ahead of
11 the leadership."
And in the Israeli papers
almost all other topics are still
overshadowed by the stories and
articles on the economic crisis,
and the aftermath of the govern-
~ ment's economic measures, insti-
New Quota Low
29 Jews were granted exit visas

ber, the lowest monthly Jewish
emigration in more than 20 years,

Soviet Jewry reported. The figure

tuted at the beginning of
Yediot Aharonot with the
largest circulation, reported last
week on threats by teachers and
hospital employees to go on
strike if they do not receive psy
adjustments to compensate for
the in flat ion-caused erosion of
their paychecks. (The finance
minister, a week earher, declared
that no pay supplements should
be made, as has been customary,
during the three-month freeze
period.) This issue, the existence
of enormous amounts of "black"
money (that is. undeclared cash,
usually in foreign currency), and
the threat of growing unemploy-
ment both in the public and
private sectors, appear to be
growing threats to the efficacy of
the three-month freeze on prices
and wages
Yediot is also running a series
of reports from Dr. Amnon
Kapeliuk who has recently
visited the remnants of the
Jewish community of Yemen.
While the bulk of that com-
munity was airlifted to Israel en
masse in an operation named "On
the Wings of Eagles" shortly
after Israel became independent,
it seems that approximately
1.000 Jews remained there, and
are enjoying full protection from
feudal-like Yemeni lords, for
which the Jews pay a very
nominal annual fee the equiv-
alent of $20. As a result, not only
are they not persecuted, but are
accorded better treatment than
the average "unprotected" cit-
izen of Yemen. The only thing
they cannot do is bear the tradi-
tional dagger ("Jambiya") all
Yemenis wear at their belt. The
Jews may bear firearms, for
which no license is required.
According to Kapeliuk, all the
Yemenite Jews are observant, as
they have been for hundreds of
years: the sons receive a tradi-
tional education while for the
girls it is deemed unnecessary:
they cannot buy agricultural
land, but may purchase plots for
their homes and businesses. One
of the most interesting vignettes
told by Kapeliuk was that these
Jews recently received a ship-
ment of Hebrew text books and
religious articles arranged for by
the Satmar Hassidic group of
Brooklyn (notoriously anti-
Zionist and associated with the
extremist Neturei Karta in
Israel), which had asked repres-
entatives of the PLO to help
them in delivering the shipment.
Ma'ariv reports widely on "tax
commando" raids, which have
sought to catch tax evaders and
have concentrated on specific
sectors such as nightclubs and
entertainers, with staggering
results, especially on unreported
income from services provided for
weddings and Bar Mitzvah
It also tells of growing con-
flicts both within the government
and between it and representa-
tives of the Histadrut, on one
hand, and the "employers" on
the other. For example,
Histadrut secretary-general
Israel Keisar was holding a series
of meetings with Finance
Minister Yitzhak Modai, to per-
suade him to pay at least a
straight eight-percent pay
supplement in addition to the 13
percent which employees will get
for October, when inflation was
24.3 percent (as was supposedly
agreed on in a "package deal
just before the freeze was im-
posed). Modai reportedly insisted
that it should be paid only after
the "freeze" is over. Elsewhere,
Likud Knesset Members Yitzhak
Sieger and Yigal Cohen, in the
Finance Committee, refused to
approve transfers of more than 10
million shekels for subsidies for
milk and eggs in November. Said
Deputy Agriculture Minister
Avraham Katz-Oz, "We can't
have all the farmers ceasing to
supply the country with milk and
eggs because Sieger and Cohen
decided to go crazy."
Ma'ariv also reported that
Premier Shimon Peres said the
government had no intention of
causing greater unemployment
in fact, Peres is quoted, there
are as many jobs open as there
are unemployed workers. He
asked a joint meeting of govern-
ment, labor and industrialists'
representatives to form com-
mittees to redirect available labor
to available jobs. The statistics
for November, according to
Ma'ariv, indicated Peres was
right there was no massive
increase in unemployment and
the "hysteria" was not justified.
The Jerusalem Post reports on
the demise or at least the tem-
porary shelving of the
Mediterranean-Dead Sea Canal
project (known as the Med-Dead
Project), following an adverse
report on its progress submitted
by the state comptroller.
The Med-Dead Project was to
create a canal between the
Mediterranean and the Dead Sea,
using the great difference in
elevations to produce
hydroelectric power and
replenishing the receding
waterlevel of the mineral rich
Dead Sea, as a result of the in-
creased use of water from the
Jordan and Yarmuk rivers. The
project had been approved by the
government in 1980, and a
company was created a year later
to plan and execute the project.
According to the state comp-
troUer s special report, subn
to the Knesset Watchdog
mittee at its request, t
pany's feasibility study j.,
published this month 0mi
recommendations have al
met with incredulity from
of the experts. The state cm.
troller adds that purchase
Israel Bonds should haveitn,
clear to them that the state S
obligated to spend bond pr
on this project, an imphai
that might have been craJall
some cases. '
The Jerusalem Post adds irn
editorial that the $15 ^
spent so far on this project
"money down the drain"
that Israel may count itself lu
that "much more money is
going to be thrown out in i
of. a chimera."

He emphasized that he was not
calling for an end to "our plura-

Jewish institutions and organiza-
tions, but rather a recognition
and understanding of this subtle,
yet critical change in the dynamic
of how we must work together in
the future as opposed to how we
have worked together in the
CITRIN underscored that the
time has come "when each re-
sponsible member of our North
American Jewish community
must realize our essential inter-
dependence and must come to
grips with what this means to us
in our local Federations and in
our national organizations."
He listed "four great goals of
our North American Jewish
community, four pillars of pur-
pose that are the foundation of
our work together." These are:
" "To build and strengthen
the religious and cultural values
of our tradition (to) insure our
continuity in the generations
' "To make our Jewish
community an ever more positive
force for peace and prosperity for
our country, and justice, oppor-
tunity and fulfillment for all who
live there.
' "To strive for freedom from
oppression, bondage, ignorance
and want for Jews everywhere
an end to Jewish prisoners,
whether economic prisoners or
political prisoners, whether in
Odessa or Addis Ababa, whether
in Teheran, Hatikva or The
' "Our goal, or more accurate-
ly stated, our prayer, our resolve
is to see a safe, secure, flourishing
State of Israel."
CITRIN declared. "There are
obviously shadings of difference
among us on the interpretation of
these goals, but we all face
generally in the same direction of
these major concerns and we all
march if not to the same tune,
at least to the same theme in our
journey to hoped-for realization
of these aspirations."

The invitation, which said it

30 South County Reps Attended General Assembly
Almost 150 workshops,
seminars and discussion groups
were scheduled at the 53rd
General Assembly of the Council
of Jewish Federations held in
Toronto last month, in addition
to 11 larger-scale forums and six
plenary sessions. Almost every
one of these could produce a story
of interest to the American
Jewish community, although the
only widespread story >o reach
most readers of the Anglo-Jewish
press was that of a small group of
zealots who stubbornly domin-
ated the opening session in order
to ensure that the plight of
Fthiopian Jewry was given top
priority by the assembly.
(This only goes to prove that
the Jewish press is guilty, no less
than the general media, of suc-
cumbing to the sensational in
presenting the news.)
There were well over 2,000 del-
egates, representing some 200
Jewish Federations or communi-
ties, large and small, from all
over the U.S. and Canada. They
represented a cross-section of
every facet of Jewish life and
composition and it is safe to say
that the vast majority took part
Merchants To Do Business on Sunday
Sabbath-observing own-
ers of small stores in
Quebec have been given the
right to conduct business
on Sundays under certain
conditions. A new provin-
cial government regulation
permits observant Jews to
open their shops on Sunday
if they close Friday before
sundown and all day Satur-
day. They must have no
more than three employees
working in the store on any
day it is open.
For almost a decade, the
Canadian Jewish Congress has
been pressing the Quebec
government for a change in its
business hours legislation which
would recognize the right of Jews
to conduct their business accord-
ing to their religion.
HOWEVER, the CJC is not
satisfied with the new regulation
for several reasons. It believes
there should be no restriction on
the number of employees work-
ing. It has also asked the govern-
ment to put into law a general
principle of tolerance toward any
group which does not observe the
traditional Christian sabbath.
The CJC has argued that forc-
ing a Jew to close down his busi-
ness on Sunday, despite being
shut down on another day of the
week, is an infringement of
freedom of religion and con-
science as guaranteed under the
Canadian Charter of Human
Rights, part of the Constitution
signed in November 1981. B'nai
B'rith's League for Human
Rights has called it discrim-
The CJC is also unhappy with
the fact that the new regulation
requires that business owners
apply to the government for
permission to open Sunday and
obtain a letter of recommenda-
tion from the CJC. But CJC offi-
cials say their organization is not
a central religious authority for
the Jewish community and that
it does not want to, nor it is cap-
able of investigating the religious
practices of merchants.
THE CJC QUEBEC chairman.
Bernard Finestone, sais this
requirement will turn the CJC
into an "unpaid agency of the
government." The situation has
assertedly been made even more
absurd by the fact that, because
the regulation does not specify
Jews, it is conceivable that other
groups, such as the Seventh Day
Adventists who observe the same
sabbath, will have to come to the
CJC for a recommendation for
the exemption.
A member of the opposition
Liberal Party in the Quebec
National Assembly (legislature),
Herbert Marx, who is a consti-
tutional lawyer and the party's
justice critic, said the Quebec
government should clear up the
matter once and for all and take it
to the highest provincial court,
the Quebec Court of Appeal.
In the neighboring province of
Ontario home of the largest
number of Jews in Canada its
Court of Appeal, by an
unanimous decision of five
justices, ruled in September that
the Lord's Day Act does not
apply to observant Jews. The
Lord's Day Act, passed in 1908,
is federal legislation which pro-
hibits just about every type of
commercial activity on Sundays.
However, each province has the
right to pass legislation making
exceptions to the Act.
THE ONTARIO court judg
ment was based on sections of the
Canadian Charter of Human
Rights dealing with both freedom
of religion and the principle of
multiculturalism (an expression
used in connection with the many
ethnic and religious groups which
make up Canada's population.)
In June, the Quebec government
passed a bill amending its exist-
ing commercial hours law. While
more types of small stores are
now allowed to open seven days a
week, the new legislation also
includes much higher fines for
those who do business illegally.
in as much of the heavily sched-
uled program as they could
and most enthusiastically.
From South County, 30 repres-
entatives attended. Jim Baer,
former president of the South
Conty Jewish Federation and a
member of the national board of
the CJF, chaired one of the ses-
sions, examining Israel-Diaspora
relations, with Dr. Mervin Verbit
as the main speaker. Dr. Mitchell
Ghen, who serves as South
County's chair for the General
Assembly, and Robert A. Watkin
received awards as members of
the UJA Young Leadership
Cabinet, and Stephen Melcer was
the recipient of the James and
Marjorie Baer Young Leadership
Award of the CJF. South County
Federation was further honored
at the General Assembly by the
CJF Young Leadership Division.
It would be an injustice to the
organizers and the participants in
this, the largest representative
gathering of Jews on this con-
tinent, to fail to mention at least
some of the major topics and
noted speakers on the assembly's
program. Apart from the burning
issue of Ethiopian Jewry (on
which, among others, were heard
both representatives of Ethiopian
Jews and spokesmen for the
Jewish Agency), other subjects
included: Syrian Jewry, Soviet
Jewry, and Israel-related issues;
local budget issues, leadership
training, Jewish education, the
family, aging, career planning

and other issues concerning com-
munity services. Among the
noted speakers: Dr. Henry
Kissinger, Israel's former pres-
ident and current education min-
ister Yitzhak Navon, Jewish
Agency chair Leon Dulzin,
Ambassador Eugene Douglas
(U.S. coordinator of refugee
affairs), Rabbis Haskel Lookstein
and Gunther Plaut, author
Chaim Potok, Dr. Gerson Cohen
of the JTS, Theodore Bikel.
Morris Abram. and the list goes
on and on. And though many of
the stories won't be publicized,
the results of the General As-
sembly will certainly be seen in
the work of this Federation as
well as the others in the course
of the year.

On A Mission.. .And A Theme

County October Mission,

things which he saw to write the
following article.
The dictionary defines a

en a mission, whose theme has
en interpreted and expounded
, many different ways. The
ollowing is an interpretation of
mission which I derived from
recent trip to Israel, from
Ivhich I returned last month.
Since its inception as a people,

trials and tribulations

; at their journey through time,

hips, or on the good things; but

that propels the Jewish
ople into the future.
Through it all, we remained a
[mall yet determined people. Our
lumbers shrank many times, as
r tribulations were thrust on us
m outside and many were
treated from within during dif-
ficult times. What has become
flear is that the Jewish journey
[hrough time is a cycle of life,
leardeath experience, and
This is the theme that stands
but in Jewish history. At times
[he Jews were decimated, leaving
small remnant, yet the people
Survived to flourish again in the
rebirth process. From a man
named Abraham a small nation
was born, grew, was nearly
destroyed many times and yet
survived. All the pogroms and
destructions need not be re-
counted suffice it to cite one
example: in the year 1800 it is
estimated there were a little over
2.5 million Jews in the world, yet
just before the Holocaust, 140
years later, the Jewish people
numbered between 18 and 20
An analogy can be drawn
between the Exodus story and
the first 40 years of the modern
State of Israel, of which 36 years
have passed so far. We are told
we were in bondage in Egypt for
nearly 300 years, and presumably
most of the Jewish slaves knew
little of the Lord, or of the culture
and traditions of the Hebrew
people. Yet when Moses appeared
to deliver us, the small core of
those who did gave him their
support. We do not know exactly
how many fled into the desert,
but we do know that from this
remnant was reborn the nation of
For 40 years we went through a
purification process in the desert,
learning the new laws of the so-
ciety that would create equality
and justice and a form of demo-
cracy. During the 40 years, as the
older generation passed on, the
new one was taught a new vision
and a rebirth of that universal
spirit, and when Joshua led the
Children of Israel back to their
home they had a vision of the
future and were prepared to fight
for it if need be.
Looking at Israel's first 40
years, we may find similarities to
that rebirth process. As in
Egypt, we have risen from the
ashes of bondage and death of the
Holocaust, like a phoenix, to
come back to our home, ready to
B'nai B'rith Helps Firemen
Celebrate Holiday
Twenty-seven firemen in Boca
laton on active duty during

Ible to celebrate the holiday with
tar families, thanks to the B'nai
I'rith Boca Teeca Lodge.
B'nai B'rith made it possible
y donating a sizeable turkey to
ach of the city's five fire-rescue
'ations, for the second consecu-
year. Fire Chief John Win-
ow, who was on hand to re-
eive the gift along with some
nembers of the fire-rescue teams,
Pmmented, "We have some ex-
tent cooks to help prepare the
pianksgiving meal at our de-
tment." He said he and the

fight if need be. And Israel
represents not merely a physical
haven, but plays a major spir-
itual role in our rebirth process.
An example of the spirit of the
people was in hard evidence
during the State's first 10 yers,
while resources were scarce and
even food had to be rationed, yet
the country absorbed more than
500,000 Jews from all over the
world. During those years the
people pulled together and over-
came odds that many predicted
would not be overcome.
In the 60's and the 70's, the
older generation propelled Israel
into a "taste of prosperity," but
because of forces from without
and within this was not to last
and the people of Israel now
again have entered a state of
"material hardship." There is
again tension and anxiety among
the people, and the problems of
Lebanon and Judaea, Samaria
and the Gaza Strip weigh
Since 1948, we have been wit-
ness to a process of rebirth
still in progress of the physic-
al-material state, of Jewish intel-
lect, economy, technology, agri-
culture and military adeptness.
Can a spiritual rebirth be far
behind? Following the "rebirth
cycle," it should be near. Israel's
physical and material problems
cannot be solved by physical and
material means alone. It seems
that the time is coming for Is-
raelis and Jews around the world
to begin to control ego, to give up
worship of segmented ideologies,
and to sit down with a new
psychological set and spiritual
willingness to solve the chal-
lenges together.
During this moment of what
appears to be great darkness and
strain, we can see the greatest
hope; for in Jewish history before
the light shone it was always
darkest. There were good signs of
this to be seen in Israel recently.
People were more open, affec-
tionate, searching for common
grounds to decide on issues and
to push together in unity in order
to solve problems.
And it is not merely an Israeli
problem there is not one
Diaspora community that is
increasing in Jewish population;
on the contrary, we are losing
Jews. So if we look at Israel as
the "front line," and the rest of
us scattered throughout the
world, we must conclude that it is
a problem for all the Children of
Israel to solve.
According to the life near
death rebirth cycle, the stage
is now set for the rebirth of the
spirit the Holy Spirit, if you
will for this is the only thing
that can enable us to sit together
in the right frame of mind to
create the society that the coven-
ant itself promised we would do.
It is not a matter of Orthodoxy,
Conservative or Reform, or even
ritual, though all these may be
important. It is a matter of a
mind set to understand where in
this moment of history we stand,
and where we stand this moment
in the 40-year process of Israel's
As it will be written in 1988 on
Israel's 40th anniversary in the
modern era, the Hebrew calendar
will read "Tismah" (from the
word "Simha") which means "re-
joice." It is my firm conviction
that we are about to pull together
in order to work for the common
good and create the society that
will truly become a "light unto
the nations." When 1988 comes
around and we rejoice our tasks
will not be finished, but we will be

October Mission to Israel in
which South County Jewish Fed-
eration broke several records
have appeared in the past issues
of The Floridian. Here is a
broader pictures of the mission,
which was chaired by Ed Bobick
and had not only the largest
contingent ever from South
County, but the largest of any of
the 21 federations taking part.
Another record broken:
participants from South County
increased their campaign pledges
for this year by 114 percent
card for card over last year!!!
This was the largest increase of

Kings Point Campaign Decentralized
Looking at the ruins in Jerusalem's ancient city.
Kings Point in Delray Beach
boasts 6,653 Jewish households,
with 4,069 Federation-UJA Cam-
paign givers in 1984 or a 61
percent response, according to

This means that about 39 per-
cent of the households in Kings
Point made no contribution to
the UJA-Federation campaign
last year. Both Sol and Joe Mas-
ters, the Kings Point East Chair,
hope to rectify this situation
during the forthcoming 1985
campaign. In an attempt to in-
crease both the number of gifts
and gift size, this year's cam-
paign will be decentralized: chair
people will be appointed in each
community to run' independent
campaigns in the hope that this
will produce more manageable
According to Joe, Kings Point
is like a small city and must be
approached that way. Sol
Lapidus says this year's Kings
Point campaign will have a
theme; "In this, the 36th anni-
versary year of the State of
Israel, let everyone pledge at
least "Double Chai" or $36. We
at Kings Point are proud to be
Jews and to do our part for our
community, the State of Israel,
Jews at home and Jews abroad,"
added Joe.
In addition, in the spirit of
"Double Chai," the emphasis of
this year's campaign will fall
during 36 working days between
mid-January and early March.

The Adolph and Rose Levis
Jewish Community Center
kicked off the social season with a
major fund raising event last
month at the Royce Hotel. Over
500 people attended the dazzling

and merriment flowed all evening

door prizes was awarded to
guests. The door prizes and the
donated items auctioned by Jay

$70,000 in value.
Six months of planning by
Verna and Buddy Himber, who
co-chaired the event, and over
100 other volunteers, made the
Gala the grand success that it
was. "It was a labor of love," said
Verna, adding that "everyone
seemed to enjoy the evening
tremendously They all came
together to celebrate the new
season and the new JCC!"

Israel Bonds Gets
Into High Gear
South County's State of Israel
Bonds recently held its opening
board meeting, directed by new
chair Eugene Squires, with a
wealth of new programs and
ideas planned for the year.
One new approach to the bond
campaign has been instituted by
a dynamic newcomer to Boca
Raton, Roche lie Levy, formerly
of Wilmington, Delaware, who
recently became a year-round
resident at Boca Pointe.
^.A's part of the build-up for a
gala dinner, she has developed a
"travelling trunk fashion show'
from Israel.
The fashion show, a real treat
itself, will be held on Dec. 9 at the
home of Janet and Andrew
Whitehill. A pre-sale of bonds for
the gala on Dec. 20 will take
place. (Another pre-sale was
hosted by Marlene and Jimmy
Batavia and Sue and Howard
Zipper at the Zippers' home in
Woodfield Hunt Club.)
The dinner on Dec. 20 at Boca
Pointe will honor Marianne and

The following is brought to our
readers by the South County
Rabbinical Association. If there
are topics you would like our
Rabbis to discuss, please submit
them to The Floridian.
Rabbi Ted Feldman
B'nai Tor ah Congregation
Complacency is a most dangerous state of being and it is very
easy to get there. Most human beings would probably choose a place
of isolation free of problems and troubles if the choice were to be made.
Unfortunately, such is not the way of the world.
We strive for peace, yet it is elusive.
We strive for security, yet there always seems to be a threat.
We strive for strength, yet there are always weak moments.
We strive for health, yet there always seems to be sickness.
We strive for goodness, yet we always confront evil.
We strive for love, yet we often find hate.
We strive for the material, yet upon gaining it we decide that we
need more.
We strive for God, yet we ennoble the powers of the human being.
The dynamic tension of life should preclude the possibility of
complacency, but it is still possible. Our worlds are in great need; we
live in many of them. There is hunger and poverty. There are those
still in bondage and those who lie low with illness.
There are Jews in the Soviet Union yearning for the freedom that
is ours; there are people in Ethiopia craving for morsels of food that sit
before us daily.
Complacency must be shattered and the lights of freedom,
compassion, and justice made to burn.
Our ancestors taught us a lesson and we celebrate that lesson
soon. On Chanukah the lights burn brightly within the Jewish home
piercing the darkness of our world. They remind us of the struggle and
yearning of the brave Maccabees; they remind us of freedom and
May the lights of Chanukah pierce the complacency of our lives
and may we become that beacon of light that brightens the world
around us.
