First 8th Grade To Graduate
Makes Day School History
It was like Hanukah in June,
when eight bright candles, in the
persons of the first graduating
class of the South County Jewish
Community Day School, were lit
last week.
Networking For
The Sick Elderly
Developing a network of people
who will serve the sick elderly in
South Florida was the purpose of
a one-day conference held June 9
at the Tamarac Jewish Center.
Called the "Interfaith
Caregivers' Training Con-
ference," it was jointly sponsored
by the Southeast Region of United
Synagogue of America, the Inter-
religious Liaison Office of the
American Association of Retired
Persons, the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale and the
National Interfaith Coalition on
The challenge of caregiving for
a rapidly aging population ap-
pears to be one of the central
issues confronting our society to-
day, said the Conference's
keynote speaker, Dr. Milan Dluhy,
associate director of the
Southeast Florida Center on Ag-
ing at Florida International
University. Currently, he said,
caregiving is still largely a matter
for family, friends and volunteers.
Saying that we are already in
the midst of the aging revolution
phenomena, Dluhy read con-
ference participants a few of the
Dr. Milan Dluhy
things demographers are saying
about the year 2060. Children
bom today, he said, will be at
retirement age (65) that year.
Their life expectancy will be 100
years, compared to 75 today.
Lifespans of 115 to 125 years are
not beyond comprehension, he ad-
ded. Thirty-six percent or one out
of every three people will be over
65 in 2050, where only 12 percent
are today.
For the social security system,
this means there will be four per-
sons over age 65 to every five
workers then.

IDF Head Encourages U.S.
To Continue Travel to Israel
Lt. Col. Osnat Mardor, head
of public relations for the
Israel Defense Force, said
here that she came to the
United States to encourage
American Jews to continue
traveling to Israel and not
let Libyan leader Muammar
Khadafy be their "travel
Mardor, a 17 year IDF career
officer, said in an interview with
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that her message to American
Jews is "don't raise your hands,"
don't surrender to the fear of
News reports in Israel speak of
a growing problem in the economy
because of the drop-off of
American Jewish tourists to
Israel, Mardor said. The drop in
tourism became more evident
with the onset of summer, usually
the prime time for tours and trips
to Israel.
dropoff to a fear of flying because
of recent terrorist acts. But, she
said, the timely discovery of a
bomb in the luggage of a woman
about to board an El Al plane in
London shows that El Al is still
the safest airline.
"You can't stop enjoying your
life because of this threat," Mar-
dor said. Israel has lived with the
problems of terrorism for years
and Israelis continue to go shopp-
ing, to the beach and live normal
Mardor assessed the security
situation in Israel today from the
point of view of a ranking IDF of-
ficer. The greatest security threat
today comes from Syrian Presi-
dent Hafez Assad and the military
buildup in Syria, she said.
"We must keep our eyes open
all the time maintain our army
efficiently and develop unique
weapons systems," she said. For
this reason, Israel needs to build
the Lavi jet fighter despite
American misgivings about the
project, Mardor said.
DURING HER 17-year military
career, Mardor worked in in-
telligence and served as secretary
to the Chief of Staff of the Army
before joining the public relations
department five years ago.
The eight students, first to
graduate the Eighth Grade of the
Day School, were likened to the
Hanukah candles' symbolism by
their principal, Burt Lowlicht,
who described emotionally how
far the school has come in just the
past four years since he has joined
By numerical comparisons, the
number was modest: eight
students and an audience of some
150 relatives and friends. But, as
Rabbi Bruce Warshal, the Federa-
tion's executive director put it,
the germ of the idea for the school
was only seven years old. He
recalled how a small handful of
parents got together for the first
planning meeting on the school, at
the home of Karl and Shirley
"We had no money, no books,
and practically no kids but we
had hutzpa. ." he said. The
school was started with around 30
children; Bruce and Lynn Warshal
had three, constituting 10 percent
of the school body. This year, the
school has 237 pupils enrolled for
the Fall, so far.
Warshal described how under
Marianne Bobick as president of
the school this was before she
became president of the South
County Jewish Federation a
proposal was made to the Federa-
tion's Board that it take over the
school. The board passed the
resolution by a vote of 11 to 10,
with one abstention, he recalled.
"Today, such a proposal would
probably pass with no dissenting
votes at all.. ."
This Federation, he added, is
unique in the country in owning
and operating its own community

South African Bishop Des-

Jews for fighting oppression
part of their common
heritage with blacks and
called on Jewish support in
the battle against apartheid.

Security was tight and bags
were checked for the Bishop's
talks, part of the week-long Arts
Against Apartheid Festival in
Toronto. Tutu was in the city for
three days and attended various
IN A STIRRING speech, Tutu
said many times that he and other
religious leaders have been accus-
ed of mixing religion with politics.
"Almost always, it is when you
have stood up to speak against a
system which you believe is incon-
sistent with the law of God. If
Bishop Tutu was to have stood up
here in Toronto and said he didn't
think apartheid was too bad, I can
bet you my bottom dollar none off
my erstwhile critics would say he
was mixing religion with politics,"
Tutu said.
"I have not yet heard the vic-
tims of apartheid say, 'Bishop
Tutu, you are too political.' If
anything, they would say, 'You
are not political enough.'
The Anglican Bishop received a
standing ovation upon entering
the synagogue, to the strains of
Shalom Alekhem, sung by the Ho-
ly Blossom Temple Choir. Accom-
panying Tutu was entertainer

plause by singing the Jewish folk
song flawlessly along with his

Belafonte, who said Jewish in-
volvement in the days of civil
rights marches in the United
States would not be forgotten.
Belafonte alluded to the "strains"
between blacks and Jews in the
U.S. at a time when the two com-
munities should be coming closer
Holy Blossom president Gordon
Wolfe reminded the crowd of
1,200 of the 1962 visit to the
synagogue of slain United States
civil rights leader Martin Luther
King, Jr., who said segregation
was morally wrong.
Tutu said what motivates him is
not politics but his faith "the

has a great deal to thank God for

The Workshops,
Alzheimer's/Respite Care
Friday, June 27, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
Networking For The Sick Elderly
Dr. Samuel B. Strang, a resear-
cher and social scientist from
Boca Raton, updated conference
caregivers in Tamarac on the
latest developments in
Alzheimer's research. He began
by explaining that Alzheimer's
Disease is probably a heading
under which there are several
kinds of Alzheimer's disease.
First, he spoke of genetic and
familiar transmission the
tendency to be an inherited trait
in many families. Current
research is demonstrating that
even with the early onset of the
disease, it is still the same disease
and chances are 30 percent
greater that family members will
acquire it. He noted also that
Downs Syndrome patients are fre-
quently living into their 30's and
40's and then developing
Alzheimer's Disease.
There is talk, too, of
Alzheimer's being a toxic disease
especially linked to aluminum
toxicity. The thinking today, said
Strang, is that there is probably
an impaired metabolic process in
some individuals which results in
an accumulation of metals.
More popular current thinking
Dr. Samuel B. Strang
focuses on Alzheimer's as a
metabolic genetic change. He said
that a protein has been found in
Alzheimer's patients long before
any other symptoms appear. It
may be an actual change in the
DNA structure of the cell, or, it
may be a viral infection which in-
cubates slowly over a period of
years. However, said Strang, ef-
forts to transmit the virus from a
laboratory animal to a culture
have been unsuccessful.

positive and negative sides of the
issues involved with this
phenomenon. On the positive side,
the age period of 50 to 75 is now
being labeled by gerontologists as
"the third age." These are years
when people are still healthy,
winding down on careers, but still
have 25 healthy, productive years
of life left. It is predicted that one
out of every three people will be in
this situation by the year 2000.
"What will we do with these
people?" Dluhy asked. "We have
no plans or expectations for them
as a society." They might catch up
on travel, they might be attached
to the labor force or they might
serve as volunteers, he suggested.
"This is an opportunity for people
in the caregiving business to think
about how to organize and utilize
people," he emphasized.
On the problematic side of the
issues, Dluhy mentioned the
astronomical growth of the age
85-and-over group. With over
160,000 people of this age group
in Florida today, he noted, this
group is being looked at in the
same way that the age 65-and-
over group was being looked at 20
years ago. This is the age when
physical and mental problems
start to occur. "How can we con-
tinue to give them a high quality
of life in a non-institutional set-
ting?" he queried.
Because of this movement, from
a three-generational society to a
four-generational society (with
children, their parents, grand-
parents and great-grandparents),
the challenge will be the greatest
for the group directly behind this
group, the 50 to 75-year-olds.
Another negative pheno-
menon developing today and
never seen before, according
to Dluhy, is the growing number
of elderly living alone. Projections
are that 45 percent of the elderly
will live alone by the turn of the
century. Eighty percent of these
people will be women, living on
fixed or limited incomes. Already
today, he said, 40 percent of those
living alone are at or near poverty
level. He reminded par-
ticipants that people living alone
tend to have more problems of
depression, alcohol and drug
abuse and physical needs which
tend to isolate them from their
social networks. They are less
likely to drive and they are the
least satisfied with their lives.
These groups present the greatest
challenge for caregivers.

Bereavement and Grief
Among other subjects, a
workshop on "Bereavement and
Grief dealt with the victims of
AIDS and bereaved parents.
Father Fred Tondale, executive
director on AID on 12th Ave. in
Fort Lauderdale, told of "how ug-
ly it is to die from this disease,
physically, socially and
psychologically." He noted that
the victims were usually young.
A typical reaction, he said, can
be seen in the case of a victim he
knew who wrote his mother:
"Please Mom, I need you." When
the mother finally came, it took
her five days before she would
even touch him. Another mother's
reaction when her son was even-
tually institutionalized was:
"Please don't bring him back
here. I don't want to know when
he dies."
These people will later need
guilt counseling, said Father Ton-
dale. "It's the people who are
committed to the support of AIDS
victims who require ongoing pro-
fessional support." He called
AIDS "the greatest challenge to
humanity since leprosy."
Edith Kaplan, director and
group chapter leader, and a
bereaved parent herself, heads
The Compassionate Friends, Inc.
a self-help organization offering
friendship and understanding to
bereaved parents. Kaplan came to
the conference to let people know
that such a group exists.
She spoke of the unique grief of
a parent after the death of a child
"a grief that could never be
comprehended by those who have
never experienced this. It's the
most intense grief. No one ex-
pects to bury a child. A child is the
Kaplan explained that Compas-
sionate Friends operates on
several different levels. The group
serves on an individual basis or
with monthly meetings, with a
monthly newsletter, a library,
literature, social activities and a
24-hour hotline. Friends also
works with hospitals and lectures
in the community.
Friends chapters are available
in Dade, Broward and there is one
in Boca Raton. For information,

or member fees. The groups de-

Of the several speakers in the
"Support Groups" workshop,
Sandra Crain, social
worker/counselor at the Focal
Point Senior Center in Deerfield
Beach, centered her discussion on
"Resources Available in the
She wanted to make conference
participants aware of the ways to
link into community services for
people who are frail and home-
bound. She specifically mentioned
services as: vistting nurses, Meals
on Wheels and home heath agen-
cies. The Yellow Pages are most
handy for this type of resource,
she said, under the heading of
Crain also advised the group on
how to establish support groups
within houses of worship. There,
the elderly can meet with other
people who could understand and
share knowledge about similar
problems of the aging process.

Exploiting the Pollard Case
As expected, the Pollard spy
case is giving Israel's usual critics
a field day. The Washington Post,
probably the most consistently
anti-Israel daily newspaper in the
country, continues to carry the
most negative aspects of this
story, prominently, on its front
In Congress, John Conyers,
Democrat of Michigan and one of
five congressmen identified as
"most anti-Israel" in the House of
Representatives, has announced
plans to begin an inquiry on
"Israeli espionage" in the United
States in his subcommittee. For-
tunately, in spite of many years in
Congress, Conyers is not taken
seriously by his Congressional
peers but the media is expected
to provide fulsome coverage.
Continued exploitation of an un-
fortunate but thankfully isolated
occurrence only serves the in-
terests of our nation's most im-
placable foes. The sooner the
United States and Israel put the
Pollard case behind them, the bet-
ter for both countries and Middle
East peace. Until then, the
American public will be subjected
to the distortions and exaggera-
tions of those who regularly crawl
out of the woodwork whenever an
opportunity presents itself.

to these pro-Israel activists, and
his relative ineffectiveness in the
Senate has been noted by a varie-
ty of Washington observers. They
are now reconsidering future sup-
port since Hecht more so than
many of his colleagues had
reason not to switch.
Hecht, up for reelection in 1988,
is considered vulnerable based on
his overall lackluster perfor-
mance. Hecht, who explained his
switch in order to protect "the
prestige of the Presidency," has
seriously undermined one of his
natural bases of support.
The other Jewish Senator who
voted with the Administration
(and one of only five Democrats to
do so) was Ed Zorinsky of
Nebraska. Zorinsky was less of a
surprise since he voted in favor of
the Saudi sale in the earlier vote,
and is rarely supportive on Israel-
related issues. While Zorinsky has
not actively sought support from
Jewish sources in the past, he may
now be assured that there is an
additional reason why it will not
be forthcoming in the future.
Bending Over Backwards
The Senate vote to override the
President's veto of a resolution
disapproving the latest arms sale
to the Saudis was scrutinized
closely in Washington in order to
see which senators would switch
their votes to give President
Reagan the 34 Senate votes (100)
he needed.
While this particular sale was
not viewed as being crucial to
Israel's security, there were valid
arguments advanced against the
sale based on the Saudi's lack of
support for U.S. objectives.
However, friends of Israel,
despite the lack of organized lob-
bying, clearly did not like seeing
additional sophisticated U.S.
weaponry going to an avowed
enemy of Israel.
The most notable switch enabl-
ing the sale to go through was
first term Senator Chic Hecht of
Nevada. Hecht, Jewish and an
ultra-conservative Republican
Lightning Strikes
Contributions to candidates
running for Congress from the
National Association of Arab
Americans' political action com-
mittee are increasingly becoming
embarrassments to recipients.
One of the latest contributions
sent back to the NAAA was from
the Republican candidate for an
open House seat in Maryland,
Bobby Neall. Neall, who is facing
an uphill battle against popular
Democrat Tom McMillen, a
former professional basketball
star and Rhodes Scholar, claimed
he did not know that the NAAA
supported PLO positions. Press
reports pointed out. however, that
Neall attended a major NAAA
event some months earlier and
had accepted contributions from
individual NAAA board members.
But obviously Neall finally realiz-
ed that association with PLO
backers would not be popular with
the voters. On the whole, this
episode should make congres-
sional candidates more selective
in accepting help from all comers.
Perhaps the only good thing to come out
of Kurt Waldheim's election to the
Austrian presidency was that it forced the
Soviet Union to abandon all pretense of
revulsion over the Nazi legacy. There has
not been much good to say about the
Soviets since they seized power in 1917,
but there was one thing. They fought the
Nazis valiantly losing almost 20 million
people in the process and were at the
forefront of those dedicated to seeing that
Nazi crimes against humanity not be
To a large extent, that has changed in
recent years. Moscow's East German
puppet state routinely placedex-Nazis in
high positions. Unlike its democratic
neighbor, the Federal Republic of Ger-
many, it neither went through a process
of "denazification" nor made any attempt
to offer amends to the Jewish people.
(West Germany paid Jewish survivors of
the Holocaust and the State of Israel
several billion dollars in so-called repara-
tions and proclaimed its need for a
"special relationship" with Israel.)
East Germany also followed Moscow's
lead in utilizing Nazi-like rhetoric against
Zionists, Jews, and Israelis. The Soviets
were probably the first to equate Zionism
with fascism and racism, often going so
far as to make analogies between Israel
and Nazi Germany. At the same time,
Moscow tried to maintain its historic anti-
Nazi credentials. Its anti-Jewish, anti-
Israel rhetoric was obscene but Moscow
attempted to balance it with blasts of anti-
Nazi oratory second to none. It had little
choice. There was hardly a Russian family
which had been left untouched by the Ger-
man onslaught of the 1940's. The average
Russian was in no mood to forgive and
That all appeared to end on the day that
Kurt Waldheim won the Austrian elec-
tion. One might have expected the Soviets
to oppose Waldheim even without the
allegation about his war criminal past.
Waldheim was the candidate of a right-
wing party while his opponent was a
socialist. Of course, Moscow tends to
despise social democrats even more than
it "does conservatives. Beyond party
labels, however, was (or should have been)
Waldheim's record during World War II
Throughout the Austrian campaign, the
Soviet press ignored reports that
Waldheim may have committed war
crimes. It ignored them even though some
of Waldheim's alleged victims were pro-
Soviet, anti-Nazi fighters in southern
Europe. (At this point, one hardly expects
Moscow to expend any concern over the
Nazis' Jewish victims.)
Moscow only broke its silence after the
election. Tass (June 8) dismissed evidence
of Waldheim's Nazi past as concocted by
the "U.S. Administration and Zionist
circles" to discredit Waldheim because of
his anti-Israel record while at the United
Nations. It called the revelations about
him "personal hostile attacks" which
were "unjust and slanderous" and "in no
way confirmed by the documentary
Instead of examining that evidence
Tass^ praised the Austrian for his "active
role" in securing the passage of UN
resolutions adopted "after Israel's ag-
gression against Arab countries in 1967 "
According to the New York Times (June
9), Tass "placed Moscow unambivalently
behind the new President."
It is an interesting development. The
Soviets, who often remind Americans of
the anti-Nazi alliance between our two
countries between 1941 and 1945, are
now so anti-American and anti-Semitic
that they would rather embrace alleged
Nazis than stand on the same side with
the United States and Israel. This, in a
sense, represents the real end of the post-
war era. Moscow has applied its famous
revisionism to World War II and, in this
instance, switched sides. It's not terribly
sad Gorbachev and Waldheim deserve
each other. But it is evidence of the
lengths to which "anti-Zionism" can push
people and nations. Moscow (like the
voters of Austria) should be ashamed,
i ou can be certain that they are not.

In medieval times it was the
fashion to keep about a memento
mori. often a skull, as a reminder
of how short life is, how precious,
and how soon death comes,
perhaps even of how life well lived
transcends death. Such preoc-
cupations would seem morbid in a
time whose spiritual boundaries
sometimes seem marked by Jane
Fonda's Exercise Book on one
side and the Phil Donahue Show
on the other. But now, 53.9 per-
cent of Austria's electorate has
given the world a reminder of the
brevity of life, the realm of death,
and the nature of moral choice. On
front pages and television screens
the world over, there was the pic-
ture of Kurt Waldheim, elected to
a six-year term as Austria's presi-
dent, holding flowers.
Dr. Waldheim doubles as a sym-
bol of forgetfulness. There he is,
the picture of good fellowship and
Austrian gemutlichkeit; he might
be having his picture taken at an
Oktoberfest. Who would associate
this portrait of a winner with the
memory of deportations, execu-
tions, atrocities? He himself had
forgotten all that, at least for of-
ficial purposes: "After being
wounded on the eastern front and
being incapacitated for further
service on the front, I was unfit
for front duty for a very long
time. This allowed me to finish my
law studies in 1M4." Only later
would he remember that he had
Paul Greenberg
served in the Balkans, too, but on-
ly as an interpreter, and that he
had known nothing of atrocities
occurring all around him.
The Army Group to which he
was assigned in 1942
(Heeresgruppe E) was responsible
for a massacre of Yugoslav par-
tisans in the Kozara Mountains in
^nnJction with which Lieutenant
Waldheim received a decoration
for bravery "under enemy fire."
The decoration was only a sym-
bolic gesture, he would explain
something they handed out to
He turned out to have been not
just an interpreter but an in-
telligence officer on the staff of a
general hanged for war crimes.
Dr. Waldheim explains that his
job was only to certify the unit's
actions, not commit them. He is
being unduly modest. His
signature turned up on two war-
time reports alerting his com-
mand to partisan activity "on the
Stip-Kocane road" in Yugoslavia.
Two days later, the Wehrmacht
would burn three villages along
the road, murdering 114 civilians
in the process. Lieutenant
Waldheim would duly conclude his
report for that month, October of
1944, by recording a total kill of
739 "bandits" but the seizure of
only 63 weapons.
Kurt Waldheim was still
dissembling even in his hour of
victory, assuring his countrymen
that only some individuals were
raising questions about his past,
not governments. Meanwhile, his
case was being investigated by
this country's Justice Depart-
ment; an official inquiry was con-
tinuing in Israel; and in London
some MPs were demanding
answers to their questions about
the fate of British commandos
who had been captured in the
Balkans and subjected to "special
handling" Heeresgruppe E's table
of organization lists Lieutenant
Waldheim as head of an in-
telligence section responsible for
processing reports, issuing

EDITOR. The Jeurish Floridan:
Shalom! Shalom!
We have just returned from our
sixth trip to Israel, the very best!
It was the most exciting holiday
we had, anywhere, and the safest.
From the moment we set foot
on the Canadian Nordair plane to
Montreal and then onto the El Al
plane to Tel Aviv, we were totally
protected by El Al security. We
realized that we felt safer than if
we had set off to any other coun-
try, including our own.
It soon became apparent that all
flights designated for Israel are
manned by Israeli security.
We stayed at Herzleria by the
Sea, renting a car and traveling
the length and breadth of Israel.
We visited Taba, the disputed
area at the tip of Eilat, the West
Bank including Jericho, East
Jerusalem, and Jerusalem. We
traveled freely among the Arabs,
visiting the "Shuck" (bazaar) in
the Old City; not for one moment
did we feel apprehensive.
Throughout the entire trip, we
were repeatedly greeted with
"Nu? Where are the Americans?"
As a reminder to us all, we
brought home a T-shirt imprinted

Club Conference, Henry Duffy,
President of the U.S. Airline
Pilots Association is quoted as
favoring further tightening of
U.S. security at airports, which
would include background checks
of airport personnel. "I don't
think we need an Israeli type of
security yet and I hope we'll
never need it," he said.
Yes, we all know that, unques-
tionably, Israel has the world's
toughest security, at its airports
and on any plane destined for
Israel. We wonder, therefore,
why we encountered so many
European tourists and so few

I returned from a three-we< k
visit in Israel on Friday, May 30.
As always, the first paper I read is
my copy of The Jewish Floridian,
and when I opened to page 5 of
the May 30 edition, to my sur-
prise, I find an article about Malka

Faragon's home in the Old City of
Jerusalem. Everything in the arti-
cle is exactly what she told us
about her life in the Old City. She
is indeed an intelligent, learned
woman, and we learned much
listening to her. The walls of her
home are covered with books from
ceiling to floor. I wish we could
have spent more than two-and-a-
half hours with her.
Mrs. Faragon met us at the gate
to the walled city at 8 p.m., and
walked us back to the gate at
10:30 p.m. At no time did anyone
of us have any fear while walking
there, or at any time or any place
while we were in Israel. There
were many German, French,
Swedish and Canadian tourists,
and so many young people from
foreign countries, but unfor-
tunately very few Americans. We
were a group of 31 Americans,
four Christians, one Japanese-
American and all of us loved and
enjoyed every minute of our visit.
This was my third visit and the
best! Yes, indeed, Israel is a place
to visit without fear. This year in

The Senate tax plan looks like
it's going to be close to the mark.
The high tax bracket is likely to be
between 27 percent and 30 per-
cent. This means that your
charitable donations are going to
cost more in after-tax dollars. For
example, a $1,000 contribution
this year, assuming you're in the
50 percent bracket, costs you
$500. After the new law, it will
cost you $700.
Suppose you have a charitable
obligation over the next three
years. "Pay as you go" is going to
cost you more in after-tax dollars.
What to do? Set up a Philan-
thropic Fund with Jewish Com-
munity Foundation. Make your

Anti-Religious vs. Ultra-Orthodox
Counter-violence by anti-
religious extremists against
ultra-Orthodox zealots who
have been burning and
defacing bus stops in recent
weeks erupted in Tel Aviv,
Jerusalem and other cities
over the Shavuot holiday
last weekend as the govern-
ment made strenuous ef-
forts to effect a reconcilia-
tion between secular and
religious Jews.
Vandals broke into Hidushei
Harim Yeshiva in the Ramat
Hayal quarter of Tel Aviv and
went on a rampage destroying
prayer books. Bibles, copies of the
Talmud and phylacteries. The
walls of the yeshiva, which is run
by the Gur Hasidim, were daubed
with slogans such as "Khomeini-
ists," a reference to the Ayatollah
Ruholla Khomeini who imposed a
theocratic government on Iran;
"Organization Against Blacks," a
reference to the black garb worn
by ultra-Orthodox Jews; and
"Down with the Black Parasites."
THE INCIDENT was the worst
in the series of anti-religious at-
tacks that began with arson at the
Bnei Benjamin synagogue in Tel
Aviv last Wednesday (June 11).
The walls of the Great Synagogue
in Tel Aviv were daubed with
swastikas. Swastikas also ap-
peared on cars and house walls in
the Neve Sharet religious quarter.
Mayor Shlomo Lehat of Tel
Aviv said he was shocked by the
"terrible and dreadful" violence.
Aguda Israel MK Avraham
Shapira demanded life sentences
for the perpetrators.
In Jerusalem, a burial society
Awaken Party
ternal elections held recently in
the National Religious Party
(NRP) appeared to have
strengthened the Young Guard
faction of the party's Secretary
General and former Education
Minister, Zevulun Hammer.
Whether that evolution is ac-
curate will not become clear until
the NRP national convention in
July. If it proves to be correct, it
will be a blow to the longtime
NRP leader, Religion Minister
Yosef Burg. Burg, 75, has in-
dicated he plans to step down
from his NRP leadership post and
from tne Cabinet.
Observers said Burg had hoped,
and continues to hope he will be
able to install as his successor
former Knesset member Avraham
Melamed. But Hammer, ap-
parently strengthened by the elec-
tion, is expected to make a bid for
party leadership at the NRP July
THE INTERNAL elections
were the first to be held by the
NRP in more than 13 years, a
period marked by a steady decline
in NRP fortunes. From a party of
10 to 12 Knesset seats, the NRP
has been reduced to four seats,
due to defections of several blocs
and disillusionment over a bitterly
divided leadership.
Other observers considered the
election results a hopeful sign for
the NRP because they signalled a
return to the fold by the Matzad
bloc, a break way group currently
a part of the Morasha party Mat-
zad is currently led by Yosef
Shapira, a Minister-Without-
Matzad leaders also claimed
they had done well in the internal
elections. Observers commented
that if all the claims of NRP fac-
tions were totaled, they would
provide 120 percent of the votes.
van was attacked by anti-religious
elements. Religious books were
destroyed in a school in Yavniel
and slogans were painted on the
walls of the school building and on
homes denouncing the local rabbi.
Ultra-Orthodox zealots have,
for weeks, waged relentless war-
fare on bus shelters in Jerusalem
and elsewhere because of adver-
tising posters they consider "inde-
cent." More than a score of ar-
rests have been made, but secular
Jews have complained that the
police are not tough enough with
the religious vandals. Mayor Ted-
dy Kollek of Jerusalem in fact
predicted there would be counter-
violence by anti-religious
Orthodox Jews have
demonstrated regularly during
the past year against Friday night
cinema performances, an il-
luminated map of the city was
sprayed with black paint and
slogans attacking secular Mayod
Dov Tavori. In Rishon LeZion. a
bus carrying advertising posters
was burned.
Premier Shimon Peres has been
trying desperately to prevail on
reliidous and secular elements to
end the violence. Last Thursday.
he and Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir convened a meeting of
Cabinet ministers. Knesset
members, the two Chief Rabbis,
the Police Inspector General and
media representatives.
They agreed to establish a
"special council to discuss con-
troversial issues" and released a
statement rejecting "with disgust
the use of violence to influence
decision-making or to express pro-
test." Peres said at the meeting
that "both religious and anti-
religious coercion" are inadmissi-
ble. Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Avraham Shapira warned that
violence and the destruction of
property are forbidden by the
Shamir said after the Thursday
meeting that the danger lies in the
support fringe groups have
managed to mobilize lately among
wider circles. He urged isolating
the fringe groups that are involv-
ed in acts of violence.
BUT, Shamir observed, in his
view the status quo on religious
observance had been eroded by
certain mayors. Police Minister
Haim Barlev said the first priority
is to restore respect for the law.
He sh;. -ly criticized Aguda Israel
MK M, achem Porush for saying
publicly recently that he personal-
ly would deface offending adver-
tisements on bus shelters.
Police Inspector General David
Kraus said he met with the rabbu
of the ultra-Orthodox Eda Haredit
sect which has been involved in
the attacks on bus shelters. He
said he had the impression they
were trying to calm tempers.

One Couple's Search For Peace of Mind
For her 30th birthday, Karen
Albert made a substantial gift re-
quest of her husband, Michael.
She wanted to make her home
kosher and join the Orthodox
Boca Raton Synagogue.
Seventy-five guests from the
major streams of Judaism attend-
ed Karen's birthday party. All
participated in the "kashering" of
her kitchen, including some 25
children. Many brought gifts of
new kitchen-related items. "I in-
vited so many hoping to ignite a
spark in others. It worked!" she
Karen, the Early Childhood
Director for the Levis JCC and
Michael, a dentist and owner of
the 9 to 9 Family Dental Center in
Boca Raton, have been married
for 10 years. They have two
children, a boy, 8, and a girl, 6,
The couple, who were married
in a Lubavitch Yeshiva, regarded
themselves as non-observant
Reform Jews until recent years.
When they moved to Boca Raton
almost four years ago, they joined
a Reform synagogue for six mon-
ths, "found it unfulfilling," said
Michael, and joined a Conser-
vative congregation for the next
two-and-a-half years. "Still, we
kept feeling as if we needed
more," said Karen.
Karen explained that she had
been going through a difficult
period in her life. She sought help
in self-hypnosis, psychology
and reading self-help books. "But,
I couldn't find peace of mind."
Then, one day, "in my desperation
for peace of mind, I opened a book
given to me by my father five
years before the Pentateuch
(the five 'books of Moses'). The
book was a gift for having made
him a grandfather," said Karen.
"I had never opened it. But
from that day I knew I had
found what I was looking for. I
found G-d, Judaism and for me,
that which would give my life
great meaning."
Karen called her father the next
morning to share her spiritual ex-
perience. He stopped her, kindly
saying he already knew why she
was calling. The morning before,
as he put on Tefillin, he had
prayed that Karen might find
Haahem ("The Name" Or-
thodox reference to G-d) and form
a relationship with G-d. In the
evening, she finally opened the
For Michael, the approach to
Orthodoxy was "a personal need
to surround myself within a dif-
ferent structure. I wanted to be a
part of a more traditional ex-
istence. I wanted to participate in
more of the rituals as putting on
Tefillin daily."
Karen sees in her husband "an
enormous devotion and commit-
ment to his beliefs. When I watch
him put on his Tefillin each morn-
ing and I see him close his eyes to
Police Search
For Thieves
Police are searching for the
thieves who broke into the Lek
Street Synagogue here on the
night of June 4 and stole silver
ritual objects insured for $40,000
but considered of much greater
value. It was the second such theft
at the synagogue in two years.
The items taken include seven
Torah crowns, seven Torah
shields and several silver pointers.
Police said the burglars were ap-
parently well acquainted with the
pray, I know that he is with G-d at
that moment."
Karen and Michael both feel
that Rabbi Mark Dratch, former
spiritual leader at the Boca Raton
Synagogue was instrumental in
helping them "to bridge the gap"
from Conservatism to Orthodoxy.
"He was willing to accept us at
our own level then and help us to
grow from there."
The early period was a
vulnerable one. If the Rabbi had
been "harsh" with them, they
might have been "intimidated,"
Karen said. She spoke of the
discomfort in walking into an Or-
thodox synagogue and not know-
ing any of the rituals. "But Rabbi
Dratch was never judgmental,"
she added.
Both Alberts say their
backgrounds were assimilated,
although Karen's background
evolved during her childhood from
traditional to assimilated Reform
Judaism. Yet, she adds, her father
still helps his children to grow
In describing the new dimension
that Orthodoxy has added to her
life, Karen said: "Now that I've
found G-d, I find sheer delight in
helping others. Before, I lived life
for my own selfish needs. The op-
portunity to help another human
being is a mitzvah for me."
Karen, who had worked former-
ly in sales and management,
changed careers at this turning
point. She feels that working with
children fulfills the promise of the
Torah that children will bring the
parents back to Judaism.

the students.
The graduation exercises were
enhanced by entertainment from
the school chorus, led by music
teacher Ruth Etkin, who accom-
panied them on the piano. Cantor
Martin Rosen of Temple Beth El
opened the ceremonies with the
singing of the anthems; Rabbi
Theodore Feldman delivered the
benediction and Rabbi Joseph
Pollack the D'var Torah. Rabbi
Merle Singer blessed the students
with the traditional Blessing of
the Cohanim.

Gen. Yosef Peled assumed com-
mand of the northern front last
Tuesday, replacing Maj. Gen. Ori
Orr who has taken a year's leave
of absence from the Israel
Defense Force.
Peled, 45, was born in Belgium
and came to Israel with his
mother in 1947. His father died at
a concentration camp. He grew up
in Kibbutz Negba and holds a
bachelors degree from Tel Aviv
University. Peled is married and
has two sons, the older now serv-
ing in the IDF.
Looking back at his two-and-a-
half years in command of the nor-

Council of Jewish Federations has
inaugurated a new North
American Jewish Data Bank
which will serve as both a prac-
tical tool for Jewish communal
planning across the continent and
a vital resources for scholarship.
It will provide basic and essential
Jewish demographic data that will
offer Federations throughout the
United States and Canada an
overview of regional and national
trends and a wider perspective on
Jewish communal life.
The Data Bank is the result of
an agreement reached between

Friday June_27, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of^Soi^C^unty_PagP 9
Planning Committee chaired by
Mandell L. Berman of Detroit
and the Graduate Center of the
City University of New York to
create a North American Jewish
Data Bank through which
research data on the Jewish
population will be collected and
analyzed. It is being established in
response to recommendations
made at the CJF-sponsored Collo-
quium on Jewish Population
Studies in 1984.
In addition to the Graduate
Center the Data Bank, which will
be headed by Dr. Barry A. Kosmin
of CJF, will be working
cooperatively with the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem and with
Brandeis University.
The gathering of Jewish
demographic data has a long and
impressive history going back to
Biblical times. As the demography
of the Jewish people changed with
the major movements of the
Diaspora and with evolving
political and social environments,
the history of Jewish data gather-
ing changed as well.
After the Enlightenment, the
Jews of Europe used data banks
for the practical planning of effec-
tive and efficient Jewish com-
munities that were not only
vibrant social entities in and of
themselves, but also in touch with
the mainstream of contemporary
social reality.
The first task of this new na-
tional repository will be to collect
the tapes, code books and
technical reports from various
community studies sponsored by
local Federations during the last
few years. This process will re-
quire cooperation in order to
establish a basic Data Bank that
will build on what has already
been done and then move

HAIFA A new drug for use in
treating Parkinson's disease
AGN 1135 has been discovered
by Prof. Moussa B.H. Youdim and
his research team at Technion-
Israel Institute of Technology's
Faculty of Medicine and Depart-
ment of Pharmacology. Empirical
studies show that AGN 1135
potentiates the pharmacological
action of L-dopa (L-
dihydroxyphenylalanine) and is
devoid of side effects associated
with other monoamine oxidase
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a
degenerative syndrome involving
the nerve cells in the brain which
make the substance dopamine. It
generally strikes people in their
fifties and sixties and can result in
slowed movement, tremors,
rigidity, dementia, and death.
There is no known cure, although
symptoms can be partially reliev-
ed by the drug L-dopa.
According to Technion's Pro-
fessor Youdim, L-dopa opened up
a new era in PD treatment. But it
soon became evident that long-
term use incurred several pro-
blems. After the first two or three
years of treatment, patients
began to lose response to the drug
and developed side effects i.e.,
the "off/on" phenomenon
where sometimes the drug works
and sometimes it does not,
resulting in psychosis, confusion
and other symptoms. Further-
more, L-dopa alone does not
modify PD's progression: the
disease continues to run its
natural course becoming more
and more debilitating.
In 1975, in an effort to mitigate
these drawbacks, Professor
Youdim and his colleagues
pioneered the use of deprenyl, a
monoamine oxidase type B
(MAO-B) inhibitor, in conjunction
with L-dopa. for treatment of
Parkinson's disease. The potentia-
tion of the anti-Parkinson action
of L-dopa by deprenyl has since
been confirmed by medical resear-
chers in Europe and the U.S.
Furthermore, in a recent open,
uncontrolled study of 900 Israeli
PD patients treated for nine years
by Professor Youdim and his co-
workers, deprenyl was shown not
only to maintain patient response
to L-dopa and lessen the incidence
of sid*> effects, but also to
significantly increase life expec-
tancy by possibly slowing PD's
AGN 1135, also an MAO-B in-
hibitor, has all the chemical and
pharmacological actions of
deprenyl plus the added advan-
tage that it is not metabolized by
the body into I. amphetamine, as
is deprenyl.
MAO-B inhibitors such as AGN
1135 hold out great promise for
the future. Some researchers
believe they may even prevent
further PD neuron degeneration,
and if PD were detected early
enough, the use of MAO-B in-
hibitors could possibly arrest its
progression. Recent data indicate
that the earlier MAO-B inhibitors
are included in PD treatment, the
greater the survival rate.
Professor Youdim's ongoing
research at Haifa's Technion is
now focusing on the development
and testing of other more effec-
tive monoamine oxidase B
Agricultural experts from
Israel's Negev. the country's
desert region with climate similar
to Africa's sub-Sahara, are
holding out hope for long-lasting
solutions to Africa's famine.
Responding to the United Nations
special session on the economic
crisis in Africa, they emphasized
their readiness to share expertise
at a May 29 symposium on "The
Israeli Experience in Agriculture
and Arid Zone Research"
presented by Israel's Mission to
the UN in cooperation with Ben-
Gurion University of the Negev.
Responding to the words of
Senegal President Abdou Diouf,
chairman of the Organization of
African Unity, that "Agriculture
is the priority of priorities,"
Israel's Ambassador to the UN,
Benjamin Netanyahu, told the
symposium, "Israel stands ready
to share its experience as a coun-
try that less than 40 years ago
was mostly desert."
Emphasizing concrete solutions,
the panel of Israeli agricultural
experts from Ben-Gurion Univer-
sity and the Ministry of
Agriculture described the Negev,
Israel's arid southern region, as a
laboratory for arid land
agriculture and for combatting
the spread of desert in Africa.
This laboratory has already pro-
duced results, such as the ongoing
cooperation between Israel and
Egypt in an arid land agriculture
program funded by the U.S.
Agency for International Develop-
ment, according to symposium
speaker Bobbie Abrams of the
American Associates, Ben-Gurion
University of the Negev.

Jewish Community Day School
The Beit Yeladim (Preschool)
jlminated their very successful
(ear with a Shabbat dinner held at
he Rose and Adolph Levis Jewish
Community Center on Wednes-
day, June 6. The Preschoolers led
le Shabbat service to the amaze-
ment of their family and friends
irho were surprised to hear a se-
md language (Hebrew) pouring
lut of the mouths of these
Joungstere. A catered dinner was

Although the dinner was splen-

preschoolers perform. They were
lot to be disappointed. This year's
theme, "Creation" was enacted
through songs, poems, and one-
liners which explained the biblical
story. The colorful artwork
decorating the room was that of
the students, drawn throughout
the year.
As the Preschool Shabbat Din-
ner came to an end, both the
students and their parents
recognized the ritualistic meaning
- that another school term had
passed, that they had progressed
to the next level. As family and
friends silently questioned where
the time went, the Beit Yeladim
closed the show with the recently
released song by Whitney

The U.S. which is paying for

1 similar position.
But executives of Israel Avia-
>n Industries (IAI), manufac-
Irer of the Lavi, warned that
bandonment of the project would
lean the dismissal of between
1000-4,000 engineers.

enough. Preschool director An-
drea Mossovitz believes in hands-
on education and with the
assistance of dedicated mothers, it
is often used as learning tools.
The Preschool studied the topic
of transportation. To further their
understanding, a field trip was
planned to include three different
types of transportation; a bus, an
automobile, and a train.
The train ride, a first for many
of the children, was an exciting
and informative experience. The
students learned about luggage as
they brought a small carry-on
piece themselves. They toured the
train, visiting the dining car, the
snack bar and of course the
bathrooms. Instant fame greeted
them as they pulled into West
Palm Beach. A reporter and a
news camera from Channel 12
awaited the excited students. The
interview was part of the 12 noon
news and was also seen on
newscasts later that day.

Israel, Greece Sign New
Agreement for Tourism Campaign
ATHENS (JTA) Israel and
Greece were expected to sign an
agreement for a joint tourism
advertising campaign in the
United States during the five-day
visit here of Israel's Minister of
Tourism, Avraham Sharir, which
began Sunday.
Sharir is the first Israeli
Minister to visit Greece in an of-
ficial capacity since Abba Eban's
visit in 1962 as Minister of Educa-
tion. He was greeted at the air-
port by Pabliotis Roumeliotis,
Undersecretary of National
Economy. Sharir expressed hope
that his trip would be a turning
point in Israeli-Greek relations.

The two countries have never ex-
changed Ambassadors and Israel
is represented here on the Con-
sular level only.
Roumeliotis responded that
Greece is willing to cooperate with
Israel in the areas of tourism and
economy. Sharir was scheduled to
meet with the Minister of
Economy, Kostas Simitis, and
with Karolos Papoulias, the
Foreign Minister. He carried a
message from Premier Shimon
Peres to Greek Prime Minister
Andreas Papandreou, but it was
not known whether he would
deliver it in person or through
other channels.
Both Greece and Israel have suf-
fered a sharp decline in American
tourism this year because of the
terrorist threat and the weaken-
ing of the U.S. Dollar. In addition
to a common advertising cam-
paign, Greece was expected to in-
crease the foreign currency
allowance for its citizens who visit
Israel. It will be raised to the
levels allowed by the other Euro-
pean Economic Community
(EEC) countries.
Sharir was to visit the island of
Rhodes, one of Greece's major
tourist attractions. His talks at
the Foreign Ministry, however,
were not expected to result in any
major changes on bilateral and
Middle East issues. Nevertheless,
Sharir's trip has some diplomatic
significance. It is a direct result of
the visit here last January by
David Kimche, director general of
the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

Israeli Club Gathers Momentum
Tzavta, the Israeli club spon-
sored by the Levis JCC, chalked
up its third successful activity
with a party to mark the Festival
of Shavuot, last Saturday night.
Some 90 participants, many of
them "new faces," attended the
wine-and-cheese party which was
reminiscent, to many, of a get-
together in a kibbutz Dining Hall.
The party doubled as a farewell
gesture to four couples who are
returning to Israel this month, as
well as honoring Father's Day.
Entertainment was provided by
the Golan duo, who sang, danced,

A New Age of Inability to
Recognize Crime
No, no one has yet proven
fore some international tribunal
hat Kurt Waldheim is a criminal
by the requirements of the
Nuremberg Trials. Indeed, this is
an age which is growing unable to
recognize a crime apart from
some specific article and section
of a legal code. The idea of a crime
against history, for example, is all
but lost. A President of the United
States lays a wreath at Bitburg in
honor of the heroes of Malmedy.
Who remembers Malmedy?
Reasons of state dictate a certain
prudent forgetfulness. The
Soviets did not hesitate to con-
gratulate Dr. Waldheim, indeed to
hail his election. That is
understandable: The Soviet Union
once made its own pact with
Hitler for reasons of expediency,
and it was not they who broke it.
Moscow understands the advan-
tages of historical amnesia.
But wherever Kurt Waldheim
goes now, he will stir the past.
That is why the spectacle that
makes some shudder Kurt
Waldheim as president of Austria
for the next six years, receiving
foreign dignitaries, kissing babies,
and, most conspicuous of all, mak-
ing official foreign visits can be
a useful thing. It will remind. Wait
till he visits the German
chancellor in a little Anschluss of
his own. In France, it would be
most appropriate if he could take
the waters at Vichy. Do you think
he'll visit Moscow? Maybe he'll
stop by and see V.M. Molotov
wherever they keep the unpersons
and swap impressions of Von Rib-
bentrop. Or he might hop across
the border and spend some time in
Yugoslavia, swapping war stories.
Will he go back to Salonika in
Greece, and this time see what is
happening? How far is Auschwitz
from Vienna could he make a
day trip to it?
If there were stricter laws
against obscenity in this country,
it might not be possible to conjure
up such scenes in print. But wait
till they actually occur, again and
again, and are duly recorded,
transmitted, seen the world over.
If there are some who are offend-
ed by a skull upon the nightstand,
or a death's head pictured on the
wall, perhaps it is because they
have not thought on the
usefulness of such images as a
reminder of the nature of life, of
death, and of moral choice. If one
only looks, such reminders are all
about. The most obvious one for
the next six years may be the grin-
ning visage of Kurt Waldheim.

That, he said, is why Israel exists,
"so that Israel should be a light to

With his arms outstretched and
his hands over his head, Tutu call-
ed on Jews "to join this wonderful
enterprise of setting my people
free. Will you?"
Holy Blossom Temple responded
by assuring Tutu that Jews will
battle apartheid because "we
know oppression and are commit-
ted to fight it. As victims of the
Holocaust, we know racism."
Many were expecting it but
Tutu made no reference to Israel's
trading with South Africa, for
which he has in the past singled
Israel out for criticism. In fact,
the Bishop's own relations with
South Africa's Jewish community
have been frosty, while rumors
persist he has sympathies for the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion. Last year, Tutu criticized the
U.S. Senate's decision to de-
nounce the United Nations

Israel Bonds
American Jews Urged
to Visit Israel Now
In a full-page ad in last week's
New York Jewish Week, Jack D.
Weiler, International Chairman of
the President's Club of State of
Israel Bonds, said he was shocked
on a recent visit to Israel to
witness the sharp decline in
"Today," he said, alluding to
concerns about terrorism, "the
streets of Israel are much safer
than those of New York, Chicago
or Los Angeles."
Citing cancellations of visits to
Israel as "a victory for ter-
rorism," Weiler urged com-
munities, congregations and in-
dividuals to organize trips there.
In his ad, Weiler. noted that
visitors from every country in
Europe were touring Israel.
Prime Minister Thatcher of Great
Britain was one of them.
"The Europeans are not
afraid," said Welier. "Why are
we? Where are the American
In a "personal plea to the Jews
of America and especially the
Jews of New York," Weiler urged
that the Libyan madman Kadafy
not be handed a victory.
"Wake up Jews of America! I
know you love Israel as much as I
do. It is time to prove it."
From a tourist's point of view,
Israel's attractions were
manifold, said Weiler.
"Israel's beauty enchants. Its
archaeological and cultural sites
fascinate. Its hotels, resorts and
recreational facilities are superb."
The ad cited international
mayors who, after a recent visit to
Israel, urged "visiting, vacation-
ing and traveling to the great
democratic nation of Israel."
The mayors from the U.S.,
Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg
and Norway, pointed to their own
"very constructive and personally
rewarding experiences" there.
They praised Israel's security
and urged their countrymen to
show support for peace in the
region by touring every part of
Said the mayors in a resolution:
"We unanimously join together
to promote and encouage our
citizens, our fellow countrymen,
and all the people of the world to
endorse our ideals and hopes for
an overall peace in this area of the
world by visiting, vacationing and
traveling to the great democatric
nation of Israel."
"Tours sponsored by local con-
gregations will be using the Israel
Bonds office as a clearing house,"
stated Rabbi Gregory Marx,
Chairman of Tourism. "If you
wish information, please call

In The Synagogues
And Temples ...
Anshei Shalom Gets
New Prexy, Charter
Friday, June 27, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 15
When Ben Simon was installed
as the new president of Temple
Anshei Shalom in Delray, just
before the Festival of Shavuot, it
was a doubly pleasant occasion for
every one concerned: for Ben,
because his son the rabbi con-
ducted the installation; for the
congregation as a whole because
on the same occasion they were
presented with their charter from
United Synagogues of America.
Outgoing president Edward
Dorfman stepped down after five
years in office, during which time
the synagogue was founded, and
grew, and became established in
its new spacious building on
Atlantic Avenue. It was Dorf-
man's last act in office, to receive
the charter from United
Synagogues' vice president
Robert Rapaport. Along with it
came a scroll of merit presented
by Harold Wishna, United
Synagogues executive director for
the region, and substantial checks
to the synagogues from the
Sisterhood and the Men's Club.
The ceremonies were planned
and led by chairman Jack M.
I.tvine, and co-chairperson Sarah
B. Dorfman. Jewish War
Veteran Post 266 and their color
guard, and the temple's Cantor
Louis Hershman with his 24-voice
choir played major roles in the
program, enjoyed by nearly 300
Rabbi Sam Silver of Temple
Sinai, with his inimitable humor
and incredible ability to employ
puns even in transposition bet-
ween languages lauded the ac-
complishments of Dorfman and
the congregation, part of "the

Bob Rapaport, in presenting the
charter to the synagogue, describ-
ed the various benefits and affilia-
tions available to a congregation
that is a member of the conser-
vative movement, the United
Synagogues. Introduced as inter-
national vice president and as
publisher of a Jewish weekly
paper in West Palm Beach,
Rapaport reminded his audience
that he is a veteran resident and
land developer in South Florida,
who used to have his office across
the street from the present
synagogue, in the area he helped
build as the Kings Point develop-
ment. He also pointed out that he
maintains a vacation home in
To which Rabbi Nahum Simon
of Hollywood, in his remarks prior
to installing his father Ben,
retorted that though he lives here,
his real home is in Jerusalem,
spiritually and emotionally.
The evening's program was
smooth and interesting, and end-
ed with a collation. Edward Dorf-
man, whose valedictory address
reviewed the highlights of the
synagogue's growth along with
that of the community, made it
clear his support will not lag
under the new president.
Offers Classical Courses
A course in the Bible accom-
panied by the classic commentary
of Rashi is conducted daily Sun-
day through Friday at 7:45 a.m.
A class in the classical Judaic
Codes is given daily at 6:30 p.m.
A Seminar "In The Ethics of the
Fathers" is presented every

The above courses are con-
ducted by Rabbi Dr. Louis L.
Sacks and are offered to the com-
munity at large without charge.

200 Suspected
Terrorists Held
toine Lehad who commands the
Israel-backed South Lebanon Ar-
my (SLA), confirmed last Thurs-
day that he is holding 200
suspected terrorists prisoner in
the south Lebanon security zone
and defended his refusal to permit
representatives of the Interna-
tional Red Cross to visit them.
Lehad said that 75 percent of
the prisoners belong to the ex-
tremist Shiite Moslem Hezbollah
group, said to be influenced by
Iran. They are being held at the
El-Hiam prison which the Israel
Defense Force used for detainees
before its withdrawal from
Lebanon a year ago.
Lehad said he banned visits by
the IRC because other groups in
Lebanon impose such bans. He ad-
ded however that no visits would
be permitted until the
whereabouts of the three SLA
soldiers kidnapped by Hezbollah
are made known.
He said he occasionally allowed
prisoners visits by family
members who live outside the
security zone. Lehad said he
recently freed 42 prisoners in
honor of the Moslem holiday of Id-
El-Fitr. Lehad is a Christian

Senator Childers Replies To
Ethnic Campaign Concerns
He would never tolerate an
ethnic election campaign, Florida
State Senator Don C. Childers
said, adding that rumors of a
church-run campaign in his behalf
are only rumors. Childers was in
Boca Raton last Tuesday at the in-
vitation of the Rabbinical Associa-
tion of South County.
In remarks after his presenta-
tion to the rabbis, Childers cited
his 12-year record in office as
evidence in his defense. He at-
tributed the rumors to a lack of
issues on his opponent's side.
Some of Childers' views on
school issues blended into the con-
troversy. The rabbis had been con-
cerned about Childers' positions
on school prayer, values clarifica-
tion and after-hours utilization of
school facilities.
Childers remains a strong ad-
vocate of silent prayer in the
public schools. "I am totally in
favor of separation of church and
state," he said. "Students should
have the opportunity to have a
moment of personal devotion."
As to values clarification,
Childers insists that parents be
the guiding forces in their
childrens' lives, rather than the
schools. He pointed out that the
County's values clarification text
teaches that if a child feels good
about doing something, they
should go ahead and do it, even if
it's against the parents' wishes.
For example, he said, "if parents
tell a child to not stay out past 11,
and the child feels like staying out
till 3, then there's a conflict.
Parents should have the decision-
making capabilities in this
Barbara Hegler, public informa-
tion officer for the Palm Beach
County Schools, who was con-
tacted about Childers' statement,
said that there has never been a
values clarification text in the
county. She said that the "book"
to which Childers alluded was pro-
bably a 7th Grade health text
which certain parents found objec-
tionable because of suggested ac-
tivities and discussion questions at
the ends of chapters. The health
text is still being used in some
county schools, she added. In
other schools, two new health
books are being piloted.
On the matter of after-hours use
of school facilities by the public,
Childers insisted that if schools
are called community schools,
then they should be utilized after
hours by the taxpayers who sup-
port them. At the Rabbinic
Association meeting, Childers had
been asked about the possibility of
fringe groups making use of the
schools as Satanic groups, pot
smokers and others who might
call themselves religious groups.
Childers' response was an
acknowledgment of the
guarantees of the First Amend-
ment. "By our Constitution, we
must make freedom of speech
available to everyone even if we
have a distaste for the fringe
groups." ^
Then, calling himself a longtime
supporter on issues of aging,
Childers mentioned a recent trip
to Grenoble, France, where he
went as a Florida representative
to attend a conference on geron-
tology. "To my surprise, Florida
was looked to there as a leading
state in developing programs for
the elderly. He referred to the
state's many "innovative pro-
grams" such as community care
for the elderly, meals on wheels,
and Alzheimer's Disease treat-
ment programs.
Asked about the lack of educa-
tional infrastructure at the state's
colleges and universities to sup-
port gerontological programs,
Childers replied that Florida has
had such a population explosion in
recent years that the state is lack-
ing in the educational programs
necessary to train students. "I
would hope to be able to put addi-
tional funds into this educational
Childers also stated that he was
responsible for the $176,000 ap-
propriation made for the
Alzheimer's Disease programs in
Palm Beach County a few weeks
ago. The programs are for the ac-
tual treatment of the disease and

crime prevention and social ser-
vices for the needy? Childers said
that legislators are looking at pre-
sent sales tax exemptions with
the exceptions of medical care,
religious contributions, groceries
and farm products. "If we can
eliminate tax exemptions on other
items, which would not be any
new taxes, then we could raise
funds amounting to approximate-
