the often-stated accusation that
Israel is the "mighty empire that

"On the contrary," he said,
"Israel's trade with South Africa
is dwarfed in comparison with the
business conducted between
South Africa and the Arab
nations."

ed International Monetary Fund

Africa's trade with Israel totalled
$110 million in 1984, its trade
with the Persian Gulf states in oil
alone amounted to a minimun of
$1.5 billion, or close to 15 times
Israel's trade figures.
In addition, Netanyahu revealed
that an estimated 75 percent or
more of all tonnage arriving at
South Africa ports, in violation of
the UN imposed ban, came from
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other
Arab countries. In contrast,
Israel's trade represents less than
0.5 percent of South Africa's total
trade figures.

these findings available,"
Netanyahu asserted, "not only in
preparation for the UN General
Assembly but because this is an
issue that is going to dominate the

Federation President Marianne
Bobick also praised the intensive
work done by Senator Hawkins
and Congressman Mica. "The ef-

mense need for such housing in
our area."
Mrs. Bobick felt much credit
was due Siemens as well. "No one
worked harder on this project
than Dick Siemens. His devotion,
commitment and immeasurable
time spent on it were major
reasons for this success. This
101-unit facility will be a cor-
nerstone of our new West Boca

"We have had a commitment, in
this Federation, to providing ser-
vices for the aged," she added.
"We have done this through our
Chaplaincy Service and the
Jewish Family Service. Now we
will also be able to provide hous-
ing for the elderly who need it.
"This news is a wonderful way
to start the year of 5746. It will be
a unifying force in our
community."
The loan guarantee is provided
by HUD under section 202 of the

Israel Fears Britain's Move To Sell Arms to Saudis
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel has expressed serious
concern over Britain's 3
billion Pounds Sterling arms
deal with Saudi Arabia and
its proposed sale of advanc-
ed weapons to Jordan,
where Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher has been
visiting.
The British will sell Saudi
Arabia 48 of its highly-rated Tor-
nado jet fighters the attack ver-
sion of the plane according to
reports from London plus 40
Haw training jets. The Foreign
Ministry, noting that both Saudi
Arabia and Jordan are "formally
in a state of war with Israel,"
warned that the weapons could be
used against Israel even though
this was not the seller's intention.
Moreover, the Foreign Ministry
said, the sales will upset the
military balance in the Middle
East.
THATCHER reportedly is try-
ing to interest the Jordanians in
Tornado jets. They may be
amenable to her sales pitch in
view of the looming battle on
Capitol Hill if Jordan sought to
buy equivalent weaponry from the
U.S. But the Reagan Administra-
tion indicated that it plans to go
ahead with major arms sales to
Jordan despite strong Congres-
sional opposition.
The Administration is holding
off. however, on the sale of
weapons to Saudi Arabia, except

This, apparently, is because it
wants to avoid a major battle with

Press Digest
(Compiled from Israeli dailies
and the English-language Jewish
Press, by MARTY ERANN,
Director of Communications,
South County Jewish
Federation)
An anti-missionary group in
Israel, called Yad La'achim, has
been demonstrating: in
Jerusalem daily against the con-
struction of a branch of the Mor-
mon Brig-ham Young: University
on Mount Scopus.
They are convinced that
despite the Mormons' declara-
tions that this center will not
serve as a base for missionary
activities, this will nevertheless
be its real purpose. Their fear is
supported by internal Mormon
church documents which
describe methods of proselytis-
ing Jews.
A pledge by Brigham Young
University president Jeffrey
Holland, say the opponents, is
not legally binding, and
Jerusalem's Mayor Teddy
Kollek has been blinded by gifts
made to the Jerusalem Founda-
tion (a charge which his
spokesman dismisses as utterly
ridiculous). The Jerusalem
Foundation, for which Mayor
Kollek raises funds personally
on frequent visits to the U.S. (in
small home gatherings, usually),
is supported by Jews and Chris-
tians throughout the world. It
has been responsible for much of
the restoration, park develop-
ment, library and other public
service projects in the city.
Walter Ruby an American
Jewish journalist who serves, in-
ter alia, as a correspondent for
The Jerusalem Post, recently
visited the Soviet Union, spon-
sored by the Long Island Commit-
tee for Soviet Jewry, with the in-
tention of visiting a number of
refuseniks. Ruby and a compa-
nion, David Rier, had no trouble in
Moscow; but in Leningrad, after
leaving the home of a refusenik
late at night, they were jumped by
two hooligans (a favorite Russian
adjective) who robbed them tak-
ing their film and notes along with
other things.
Ruby is convinced this was no
simple mugging, although U.S.
consular officials and a leader in
the U.S. Council for Soviet Jews
think it probably was.
A conclusion reached by Ruby
from his visit: the refuseniks are
just about, the only truly free peo-
ple living in the Soviet Union to-
day they have already lost just
about everything, and do not fear
losing anything else. (The
Washington Jewish Week)
Gush Emunim. which in the
1970'? under the Labor govern-
ments gained great momentum
in its efforts to settle Jews in
Judea and Samaria, last week
tried to hold a memorial meeting
for the slain Andre Aloush in
Tulkarm. This led to a new clash
with the military authorities, now
under Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who banned such a rally.
Aloush, a Netanya resident, was
murdered by an Arab terrorist
two weeks ago, adding to the
growing list of such killings in
ATab cities recently. TuHcarm,
situated just across the "Green
Line" from Netanya in Samaria,
has generally been considered a
safe town, benefitting greatly
from trade and business with
Israelis. Its mayor, a known PLO
supporter, condemned the attack
along with the mayor of Jenin
(further north), where another
Israeli, Uri Ovad of Tiberias, was
shot and gravely wounded on the
same day as Aloush.
The PLO news agency WAFA
said the General Command of the
Forces of the Palestine Revolu-
tion, situated in Yemen, took
"credit" for the attacks saying
they killed Israeli "secret service
officers."
Israel, meanwhile, has increas-
ed the deportation of known PLO
activists "who cannot, for one
reason or another, be charged in
courts," and has also taken more
residents of the non-Israeli "West
Bank" into administrative deten-
tion. This has led to some
demonstrations by leftist groups
in Israel who contend that the
measures violate due process and
principle of civil rights. (The
Jerusalem Post)
Amid the gloomy reports of
the economic situation in Israel,
there's a bright spot in stories
from the southern Red Sea port
city of Eilat, which is said to be
a boom town, experiencing a
growing prosperity. Hotels in
the city of 20.000 are bursting at

Eilat has also been declared
sort of a "free trade aone"
not really free, but with
substantially reduced taxes, as
of October 1. This is expected to
reduce the cost of living there by
as much aa 20 percent, and will
draw large numbers into the
area. In addition, the mayor,
Kafi Hochman. is hard at work
trying to draw light industry in-
to the town and his prospects
appear to b e good. He expects
Eilat's population to more than
double in the next five years.
For the past year there
have been innumerable
predictions of the im-
minence of the collapse of
the Labor-Likud Unity
Government. Indeed, many
crises over issues as well as
personalities often made it
appear the government
could not survive.
Still, not only has the
government just celebrated
a full year of hard work it
has actually managed to ac-
complish ,a great deal ...
Naturally, both major com-
ponents, the Labor Party
and the Likud, will attempt
to take the credit for
achievements while blaming
each other for failures .
A number of crises are
still pending, and, given the
age-old animosity and basic
differences of philosophy
between the two camps, any
one of these can still lead to
a breakup of the coalition.
Observers feel and this is
supported by various hints
from the top that as the
time grows closer for the
turnover, this breakup
becomes more likely. (The
coalition agreement calls for
Premier Shimon Peres to
hand over the reins to Vice-
Premier Yitzhak Shamir,
who will serve as premier
for the second half of the
4.5-year term.)
The threats to break up
the coalition, as often as
not, have been voiced by
Cabinet Ministers, unhappy
with the need to com-
promise on various issues.
Peres and Shamir, however,
realizing that a broad coali-
tion was essential to deal
with such major problems as
the withdrawal from
Lebanon (since completed)
and the economic crisis,
have kept the partnership
going.
The crisis currently threatening
the coalition is the issue of Taba,
the tiny strip of beach at Eilat,
which both Israel and Egypt claim
as theirs. This is a minor border
dispute, in itself not' very crucial
except that Egypt has turned it in-
to a major excuse for putting off
restoring its ambassador to Israel
and continuing to develop normal
relations as provided for by the
peace agreement between the two
countries.
The inclination of Peres and his
Labor Party has been to go along
with Egyptian demands on pro-
cedures for handling the issue.
The Likud, on the other hand, is
extremely wary of any steps
which will indicate in advance that
Israel is willing to concede. The
"inner cabinet," consisting of 10
of the 25 ministers five Labor
and five Likud was divided
down the middle on a proposal by
Peres to inform Egypt that Israel
would agree to a period of con-
ciliation, following which i

essential for laboratory research
on the human eye, has been
developed by Dr. Ahuva Dovrat of
the Technion-Israel Institute of
Technology's Department of
Biology.
Previously, it was impossible to
preserve these eye lenses intact in
vitro for more than a week, since
without adequate nourishment the
cells of the lens die and are of little
value to researchers. The new
procedure makes it possible to
maintain them for as long as 40
days.
Dr. Dovrat observed that the
outer and the inner curved sur-
faces of the lens not only have dif-
ferent functions in the living eye
but are bathed by different
body fluids. Consequently, lenses
in the laboratory may have
deteriorated relatively rapidly
because they were submerged in a
single culture medium which, at
best, could properly nourish only
one lens surface but never both.
By supplying two different
culture mediums, one situated
above the lens and the other
below, Dr. Dovrat discovered that
both surfaces could receive the re-
quired nourishment. Her techni-
que will be instrumental in advan-
cing research to impede and even
reverse some of the natural aging
processes that rob the elderly of
their eyesight: the loss of
transparency as changes in cell
metabolic activity affect light
transmission (as with cataracts)
and the lens' loss of flexibility as
cells lose their ability to change
their shape with age.
Dr. Dovrat and her associates at
Technion are developing tests to
objectively measure lens health.
They are currently working on a
computerized system where a
scanning laser beam will impact
on sensors to measure lens
transparency. This project is like-
ly to be of major significance in
studying the harmful effects of
otherwise valuable medications on
the eyes.

Shamir Rebuked
For Attack on AJCong. Mission
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
A Cabinet colleague has
sharply rebuked Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir for
his remarks blasting the re-
cent American Jewish Con-
gress mission to Cairo and
Amman and his attack on
World Jewish Congress
President Edgar Bronfman
for going to Moscow for
talks with Soviet officials on
Jewish emigration rights.
YOSEF BURG. Minister of
Religious Affairs, veteran leader
of the National Religious Party
and the most senior minister in
the unity coalition Cabinet, told
this reporter he was "astounded
by Shamir's criticism and even
more astounded that he chose to
make it public.
NOTING THAT neither the
AJCongress group's visits to
Cairo and Amman earlier this
month nor Bronfman's trip to
Moscow were undertaken behind
the back of the Israel government,
Burg declared, "If Shamir was
against the missions, he could
have aired his criticism in the
Cabinet."
Shamir, who is Deputy Premier
and leader of Likud, indicated in
an exclusive interview with this
reporter that he thought the
AJCongress group and Bronfman
were trespassing on what he view-
ed as Israel's primacy as
Dr. Yosef Burg
negotiator and policy leader not
only where its own national in-
terests are concerned but as
representative of "the Jewish peo-
ple on Jewish prohlems."
Shamir peppered his remarks
with denigration of the
AJCongress as a "peanut-size
organisation," and personal
disparagement of former
AJCongress president Howard
Squadron. He rapped Bronfman
for undertaking negotiations "on
behalf of Israel and the Jewish
people" for which he was "not
authorized."
"WHY DENIGRATE them in
public?" Burg asked." At least he
(Shamir) should have remembered
that sometimes we need them."
He added that "There is certainly
no moral or political value in a
public attack made a posteriori
and the personal denigration of
Bronfman was just plain wrong."
Sources close to Burg described
Shamir's attack as "typical Herat
bluster." It was recalled that the
creation of the World Jewish Con-
gress in 1936 occasioned a great
sense of hope among Jews at a
time of events that foreshadowed
the Holocaust; that years later the
WJC succeeded in opening chan-
nels in many countries inaccessi-
ble to both Israel and the World
Zionist Organization, such as
Poland, Czechoslovakia and
Yugoslavia.
The AJCongress group, led by
Harvard Prof. Henry Rosovsky,
issued a statement here express-
ing confidence that Egypt and
Jordan seek urgently to broaden
the Middle East peace process.
They based their conviction on
their talks with President Hosni
Mubarak of Egypt and King Hus-
sein of Jordan on which they brief-
ed Premier Shimon Peres.

After being held for eight days,
Grigory was charged with
"parasitism and malicious evasion
of socially useful work," and was
released pending trial after sign-
ing an undertaking not to leave
town. His trial took place in
March, 1978. and he was sentenc-
ed to a year in labor camp. He
served the sentence in the Ar-
changel Region near the White
Sea, where his health deteriorated
because of the hard labor he was
made to perform.
While Grigory was waiting for
his trial, Ishai was told his case
would be reviewed. At about the
time Grigory was sentenced,
Ishai's passport was returned to
him, along with threats of exile.
Ishai and Grigory's family were
not notified of Grigory's
whereabouts they happened to

and learned where he was being
sent from him. He then managed
to visit him in June and once more
in January, 1979.

where KGB agents met them on
arrival. Two days later, uniformed
men came to the apartment where
they were staying, and ordered
them to leave Moscow immediate-
ly, as they were in violation of a

. They went to the police sta-
tion and verified that their tickets
were valid until 10"p.m. that
night. Then, at 10 p.m., they left
Moscow and went into hiding.
A few days later Grigory return-
ed to Moscow, to take part in a
press conference arranged at
another refusenik's apartment, to
publicize statistics on emigration
and the plight of particularly
severe cases of persecution. In the
subsequent months Ishai twice
received call-up papers for
military service, to which he
reponded by saying he was not
eligible as an Israeli citizen. Short-
ly afterward, he and Ilizaveta
were officially divorced so that

Kabbalat Shabbat. the Day
School's Shabbat service, is a
ritual to which students and facul-
ty alike look forward. Shabbat
candles are lit, the prayers said
after which challaJi and grape
juice (symbolizing wine) are serv-
ed. This enjoyable addition to the
students' daily activities was prac-
tically taken for granted until one
Shabbat when Rabbi Richard
Agler from Congregation B'nai
Israel, Mrs. Frenches Sacks,
chairman of the Community Rela-
tions Council and wife of Rabbi
Louis Sacks of Congregation An-
shei Emuna, and Geri Gellert,
director of the CRC, shared in the
festivities. They had come
specifically to sensitize the
students to the plight of the
Soviet Jews in conjunction with
the community theme "Into The
21st Century, One Dream, One
People, One Destiny."
Mrs. Sacks discussed why Jews
are unable U> leave the Soviet
Union. She drew a vivid portrait
of a "Refusenik," one who re-
quests emigration from the Soviet
Union and is denied. The students
expressed anger and sympathy
for the difficulty a Refusenik fami
ly experiences in obtaining higher
education, secure employment,
etc.
Rabbi Agler described a Jewish
family in the Soviet Union and
what events led them to seek im
migration to Israel. Although they
knew of the stigma attached to
Refuseniks, they could not
tolerate the Soviet dictates which
forbid them to study Hebrew and
practice their religion or celebrate
their Jewish tradition.
Geri Gellert presented an orien-
tation of what Jews in the United
States can do to help the Soviet
Jews to freedom. Letter-writing
campaigns to local and federal of-
ficials are the primary focus at
this time. She explained that there
is considerable optimism with the
appointment of Premier Gor-
bachev, that Jews will once again
be granted emigration status. The
students of the Day School
responded overwhelmingly to
Mrs. Gellert's overture to assist
the Community Relations Cojrfl
in their campaign for ^
Jewry.

WRITINGS FROM THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK
Because of the covenant we entered into with G'dwe have often times
communicated His Message to each other and to the world. These are
referred to as sacred texts. Our scholars and rabbis have commented on
these texts throughout our history. Legends and other forms of literature
have been utilized to explain the message.
We have also been a historical phenomena amongst the peoples of the
world. The pageantry of the Jewish experience has also been a source of
many books. This course will survey a whole panorama of books, sacred
texts and commentaries. Each rabbi will take a different book and
analyze its meaning to the Jewish people.

JUDAISM AND PERSONAL WELL BEING
Often times we have relegated the study of Judaism to historians,
sociologists and the like. However, Judaism can be understood in many
ways and renders a total perspective of life.
In an era full of stress, anxieties, and problems. Judaism offers not only
ways to cope with these facts of life but also establishes a method for
celebrating the joys and beauties inherent in the total human condition.
Six major topics will be studied over a six week period each will be
dealt with by a different rabbi. Rabbis applying Jewish text history,
philosophy and culture to these topics will help the Academicians gain
an insight into both the answers Judaism offers and the possibilities
available within the context of Jewish life.

On Reincarnation
Pat Corrington, MSW, will
deliver a lecture on reincarnation
at the Levis JCC next week,
followed by a series of six classes
in which the subject will be ex-
plored in depth.
Throughout history, according
to Mrs. Corrington, some of the
most brilliant minds have believed
in reincarnation. These have rang-
ed from Aristotle, Galileo and
Leonardo da Vinci to Ben
Franklin, Thomas Edison and
Albert Einstein, to name a few.
An emerging western view of
reincarnation offers a
philosophical framework in which
to understand human behavior,
and additional tools for self-
exploration and growth and
this is Mrs. Corrington's approach
to the topic.
She has been working with rein-
carnation and past-lives regres-
sion since 1979. Her
undergraduate degree was in
History and Government, but
because of her interest in cor-
relating reincarnation with
psychology and traditional
religions she re'jrned to earn
Master's degrees in Social Work
and Business Administration (the
latter because of the belief that
spiritual concepts and values have
an important place in the business
community as well).
Mrs. Corrington was featured
on Channel 5's "Focus," and was
a guest on Channel 4 s "South
Florida A.M." She has just
returned from a lecture engage-
ment in Dallas, Texas. Pat Corr-
ington serves on the Palm Beach

IDF, Engineers Join Fight To Save Lives
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Civil defense specialists and
Israel Defense Force
engineers were in Mexico
City to assist in ongoing
rescue operations following
the major earthquake that
devastated the heart of the
Mexican capital with a
death toll estimated bet-
ween 3,000 and 5,000.
The first group of civil defense
experts left just before the IDF
engineers departed, taking with
them not only sophisticated equip-
ment but know-how gained in
Lebanon, rescuing people buried
in the rubble of buildings blasted
by terrorist bombs.
ISRAEL'S ACTION was in
response to a general appeal for
help from the Mexican govern-
ment. Israeli amateur radio
operators (hams) have already
established a communication net-
work with Jewish radio hams in
Mexico.
They have volunteered to pass
messages between Mexico and
Israel, transmitting information
and inquiries among concerned
citizens of both countries.
The Israeli rescue teams also
carried communications equip-
ment by which they keep in touch
with Israel via the Israel em-
bassies in Mexico City and the
U.S.
THE EQUIPMENT in Mexico
with the Israeli specialists in-
cludes sensory devices which can
pinpoint the faintest sounds com-
ing from beneath rubble;
specially-designed inflatable air-
bags to be used as jacks to careful-
ly lift fallen masonry or steel
girders weighing as much as 54
tons.
This equipment enables
rescuers to crawl beneath rubble
to extricate survivors or the
bodies of victims.

Federation/UJA Campaign '86 Update
From The Diary Of... A South County 4Missionai^e,
By MIRIAM BAT-DAVID
(Note: This is a continuation of
the local mission story begun on
Sept. IS.)
We were asked to assemble in
the Knesset Assembly Room of
the Day School and informally
formed a semi-circle with our
chairs. We were introduced to
Spencer Gellert, director of the
Jewish Family and Children's
Service.
Spencer told us that the offices
of his agency are on Federal
Highway at 32nd Street, but the
missions do not stop there since it
might interfere with confidentiali-
ty and privacy of clients. He was
there to tell us about the social
services his agency renders in the
community.
My first reaction was: "Oh
brother! after the emotions we
felt during the visit at the Day
School this sure is going to be
boring."
Spencer talked of counseling of-
fered to individuals, families,
single parents, children,
teenagers and senior citizens,
both on individual and group
basis. The agency is staffed by
licensed clinical social workers
and augmented by psychologists
and psychiatrists who are con-
sultants. (Standard stuff?
Maybe .)
But then he went on to describe
a variety of programs which are
an outreach to meet the needs of
the Jewish community, including
a Family Life Education program
with workshops, seminars and
discussion groups on such varied
subjects as: intermarriage,
adolescence, parent/child relation-
ships and many others. There are
senior adult services and even a
Widowed Persons' Support

Women's Division Holds
Leadership Workshop
Over 100 people attended the
1985 United Jewish Appeal
Women's Division Florida
Regional Conference. Entitled
Task Force for the Future, the
Conference was stimulating, live-
ly and thought-provoking. Varied
workshops were presented, cover-
ing a smorgasbord of subjects
which included Education Pro-
grams, Speaker Training, Cam-
paign Ideas, a Business and Pro-
fessional Forum, Leadership
Development and How to
Facilitate a Program. The
keynote speaker was Debra
Lipstadt who, with humor and
wisdom, guided her audience to a
deeper understanding of their
"Task for the Future."
A workshop will be held on
Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the Federa
tion offices to discuss the Con-
ference and how to best imple-
ment the ideas for our coming
1985-8H Campaign. Anyone
wishing to attend this workshop,
please call the Women's Division
at the Federation office.

New Year
Celebration
Was Aired
MONTEVIDEO (JTA) The
celebration of Rosh Hashanah in
Montevideo had a very significant
impact in the general population
of Uruguay, thanks to the in-
itiative of B'nai B'rith in this
country.
Alfredo Neuburger, B'nai B'rith
International's director for South
America, reported that three
special programs on the
significance of Jewish New Year
were aired by three of the four
television stations.
The programs included a
presentation by Vito Atijas, ac-
ting president of the Uruguayan
district of B'nai B'rith. and
Eduardo Kohn, executive direc-
tor; greetings by the Israeli Am-
bassador in Uruguay, Dr. Maria
jem Carmi; and films showing
Jewish life in Israel and the
diaspora.
Univ. Picks Gartner
NEW YORK (JTA) Donald
Gartner has been named ex-
ecutive vice president of the
American Associates, Ben-Gurion
University of the Negev, accor-
ding to Jack Spitzer, American
Associates president. Gartner has
been executive director of the
American Associates since 1982.
It occurred to me that anyone in
our community (Spencer explain-
ed that the agency is non-
sectarian, although most of his
clients are Jewish) with a problem
could receive help, or at the very
least be referred to the proper
program in our community
through the referral system. At
least two of the Family Life
Education Programs about which
he spoke were of interest to me
personally, and judging from the
nods and comments from the
other "missionaires", I was not
alone in my feelings .
(Spencer briefly referred to the
Kosher Connection, an on-site,
hot kosher meals program, but
our mission leader indicated that
we would see this program
ourselves later on. A meals-on-
wheels program, for those home-
bound, unable to provide meals for
themselves, is also provided by
this agency.)
The Family Service charges fees
for its services based on ability
to pay. Its major source of income
is from allocations from the
Federation, and it also receives
grants from the United Way and
Community Chest.
There is an emergency fund to
aid those in financial distress. As
an example, Spencer told a story
of a single Jewish parent, living in
a trailer with two children, who
called his office. FPL was coming
to turn off their electricity that
day for non-payment of the elec-
tric bill, and there was no money
for food. The agency provided in-
terim financial help. It was dif-
ficult for me to fathom that this
was actually happening in our
community. Not her.

Page 10 The Jewish Floridian of South County/Friday, October 4, 1985
A Rabbi
Comments
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.
"If Not Now ."
Quality Jewish life is the theme
of many a rabbi's sermon. Calls
for greater observance of
Kashrut. Shabbat and Mikvah are
often heard. Exhortations for
more time set aside for the study
of Torah are frequent. Yet, the
most serious problem we face as a
Jewish community is not one of
quality, but rather, one of
quantity.
We, in South County, are for-
tunate to live in a rapidly growing
.Jewish community. Thousands of
Jews are added to our ranks year-
ly. Our local demographic success
should not, however, blind us to
the national and global reality.
Due to intermarriage, assimila-
tion and a devastatingly low birth
rate, our numbers are rapidly
decreasing. Even if we reject the
extreme conclusions of certain
demographers who predict the
virtual extinction of the American
Jewish population within the next
100 years, there is no question
that the threat of population
decline is very real.
Negative population growth will
have cataclysmic impact on the
ability of synagogues, federations
Rabbi Mark Dratch
and community centers to operate
effectively. Important issues such
as Jewish unity, religious obser-
vance, Israel and anti-Semitism
will become moot in the near
future if there are few Jews left to
deal with them.
Hillel said, "If I am not for
myself, who will be for me?" We
Jews have an obligation to in-
crease the sizes of our families. No
longer will one or two children
families suffice. While concerns of
over-population and world hunger
are important, Jewish survival
must also be a vital concern.
"If I am only for myself, what
am I?" Perhaps we must forgo
some of those luxuries to which
we aspire in order to raise another
child. But, if we are to insure the
continuity of Jewish tradition and
values, we must ensure the ex-
istence of a Jewish family through
which that tradition can be
perpetuated.
"And if now now, WHEN?"
RABBI MARK DRATCH
Boca Raton Synagogue
Hebrew U.
Develops
Artichokes
New varieties of artichokes and
methods for growing them, which
promise to revolutionize this
branch of agriculture, have been
developed by scientists at the
Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Yehuda Basnitzki and Prof.
Daniel Zohary of the Department
of Genetics at the University's
Alexander Silberman Institute of
Life Sciences have succeeded in
breeding seed-propagated
varieties of artichokes.
Until now, artichokes have been
propagated vegetatively, by plan-
ting cuttings. With the new
agrotechniques, artichokes can
now be treated as any other an-
nual, seed-sown vegetable. The
result is a one-third saving in
labor costs without loss of quality
or yields.
The scientists' work has concen-
trated on the globe artichoke, a
vegetable consumed mainly in
France, Spain and Italy and by
people originating from there,
although a taste for it is develop-
ing among others as well.
Farmers in those countries
already have expressed an in-
terest in the seed-planted globe
artichokes developed at the
Hebrew U.
Traditional practice has been
for artichokes to be grown by
separating basal stumps (suckers)
from taproots, and planting these
by hand in the field, where they
remain for a period of four to five
years. After the second year, yield
and quality decline and weeds and
pests increase.

B'nai Mitzvah
BRIAN MAKOFF
On Saturday morning, Oct. 5,
the Sabbath in Sukkot, Brian
David Makoff, son of Sandra and

Chapter 23).
Bran will be sharing his Bar

Bagrat Prober of Odessa, USSR.
who is prohibited from engaging

iking about his efforts to con-
tact his twin and to inform the
public of the repressive Soviet
policies.

Israel's GNP At $22 Billion
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel's gross national product
(GNP) is estimated between
$22-$23 billion, and one quarter of
it goes to defense and defense-
related needs, according to Prof.
Eitan Berglass, a leading
economist, in a report to a joint
panel of the Knesset's Foreign Af-
fairs and Security Committee and
Finance Committee. Berglass
noted that Israel pays to the U.S.
each year about $1 billion in in-
terest and principal on military
aid loans. That burden has been
eased.

Jewish Community Day School
An Agency of South County Jewish Federation
The South County Jewish Com-
munity Day School held its first
Open House/Meet the Teacher
night, on Sept. 18 and 19 for the
Day School and the Satellite cam-
pus respectively. This introduc-
tory meeting served to acquaint
parents with their children's
teachers and the methods they are
using in their classrooms.
Each evening began with the
distribution of the secular and
Judaic curriculums which prin-
cipal Burt Lowlicht urged parents
to use as a guide and a teaching
tool: "It makes a big impression
on your child if you know what
text books he or she is using and
what they are studying at specific
times." Burt Lowlicht discussed
the Day School inception and
Growth as well as future goals.
The philosophy of the school was
explained to both new and veteran
parents.
After the opening statement
and introductions of faculty and
staff, parents visited with their
children's teachers for two half-
hour sessions. This was arranged
so that parents with more than
one child attending the Day
School could have the opportunity
to meet with both children's
teachers. The new Middle School
with its many departments and in-
structors found the two 30-minute
sessions provided ample time for
parents to visit different
classrooms and view the new
facilities.
Many parents who had not yet
seen the renovated building on
NW 35th Street expressed their
excitement. Mrs. Emily Gould,
whose son attends the Middle
School and whose daughter at-
tends the elementary school,
stated: "I am delighted to see the
numerous improvements to this
building. Now that the Day School
encompasses the whole facility
they have been able to add a
gorgeous garden, a
Media/Resource room and a
larger library. The school looks
fantastic. I never expected so
much change to happen so
quickly!"
Faculty presentations were
followed up with a general
question-and-answer period. Cof-
fee and cake were served. Both
evenings presented an excellent
Opportunity for parents to become
more familiar with the school, the
faculty, and other parents.

There are about 600 Jews in

Herald-Voice of Houston read:
"Congregation ... in Waco plans
Aliyah Dinner ..." and said three
members were to be honored. It
appeared that a Jewish-American
miracle was afoot; that an entire
congregation was about to make a
public fete to honor three of its
people who decided to go on aliyah
to Israel. .. but that was not the
case. The item referred to the
synagogue's annual fundraising
event, in which members bid for
the honors of aliyot to the Torah
reading. Too bad. In past
generations, in Europe, entire
communities indeed held public
farewell festivities to see off peo-
ple who had decided to migrate to
the Holy Land ..
