Caution was urged, however,
by Jewish Agency secretary
general Harry Rosen, in a
telephone call from Israel to cash
chairman Cadden.
Rosen emphasized the shortfall
of $47 million in the budget for
the current fiscal year, which
ends in five months, and the
resultant need for even stronger
cash collection efforts.
Collections to date for
December, according to Cadden,
have reached $10 million, against
a projected goal of $100 million
for the month.
The remaining $90 million is an
achievable figure, Cadden said,
urging all communities to tum to
cash receivables, reserves and
endowment funds to produce the
cash necessary to reach that goal.

and goals for the Tampa Jewish
community in the 1980s," an-
nounced Richard Turkel,
Federation campaign vice
chairman and forum chairman.
"This event marks a landmark
for us as an organized Jewish
community, by providing an
opportunity for our leaders to
address themselves to our
development in the coming
decade. We are not only laun-
ching the 1980 campaign; we are
coming together to decide the
form and substance of the Tampa
Jewish community for the next
several years." Turkel said.
Participating in the session
will be campaign chairman
Michael L. Levine; forum
chairman Turkel; campaign vice
chairman Hope Barnett; cam-
paign vice chairman Marsha

TheThances of Peace
The passing of the Abortion Law amendment,
which gives Prime Minister Begin's coalition a
breather in terms of its slender thread of survival,
casts some unhappy light on the Israel-Egypt peace
In itself, this may not be so. Except for
essentially minor differences between the Prime
Minister and his most potent opponent, Labor leader
Shimon Peres, a change in the Jerusalem govern-
ment would constitute no major threat to the accord.
But taken together with President Sadat's own
status in Cairo, there ought to be some careful
thinking done about the future.
It is no secret that President Sadat is in trouble.
Egypt's economic condition is going from bad to
worse. Israel's own economic woes are nothing to
sneeze at, but they are of a different order from
Egypt's, where the extremist Moslem Brotherhood
has been exploiting the country's problems with an
eye toward unseating Sadat and scrapping Egypt's
history from November, 1977 onward, the date of
Sadat's flight to Jerusalem.
With both men knocked out of power, what
would that portend? The answer lies in just how
personal a document the accord hammered out at
Camp David is. Is it a continuing thing beyond the
individual leaders who signed it a national com-
mitment by the two countries involved to a peaceful
future? Or is it durable only so long as both men are
in office to see it through to a time in the future when
that will be so?
Had Prime Minister Begin tripped over the
challenge of the Abortion Law to the survival of his
coalition, the test might already have been upon the
Middle East peace, and possibly to its detriment.

have received many inquiries
from members of the Tampa
community on the subject of
public religious celebrations and
the problems which annually
arise at this season. As Jews, we
always feel a sense of uneasiness
at Christmas time, and each of us
must respond as a Jew when
problems face us.
As chairman of the Com-
munity Relations Committee of
the Tampa Jewish Federation. I
view the "December Dilemma"
as follows The separation of
church and state is a basic-
foundation upon which our
country was founded. We must
work to preserve this principle at
all times. We see the celebration
of any religious occasion on
publicly funded property as a
violation of the separation of
church and state and therefore to
be opposed by the CRC.
Whether the celebration is at
the county courthouse or at City
Hall, both are violations of the
separation of church and state.
As Jews, it is our responsibility
to preserve the rights of all
religions to practice their beliefs
as they choose within their own
institutions, homes, and private
facilities; however when the
observance is on government
property, there is an in-
fringement on the rights of all
The CRC is prepared to assist
whenever any member of the

Lawsuit May Decide Patterns
Lawsuit in a\New'York\courtlto
block the sale of an abandoned
but still usable synagogue
building, described as the first
lawsuit of its kind, may stimulate
inquiries to determine the
validity of such transactions
extending far beyond New York
State, according to Howard
Zuckerman, president of the
National Jewish Commission on
Law and Public Affairs.
In response to that lawsuit,
filed in State Supreme Court in
Manhattan, Judge Martin
Stecher ordered a trial to
determine whether conditions of
the sale of the Kalvarier
Synagogue, on Manhattan's
Lower East Side, to the Eastern
Buddhist Association for
* 180.000 had been made in ac-
cordance with the state's
Religious Corporation Law.
THE SALE was made by
three Jews Abraham
Gulker and Saul Goldstein, of
Brooklyn, and Seymour Shyman,
of Manhattan claiming to be
trustees of the congregation.
The 75-year-old synagogue
building had long been aban-
doned by its original congregants
but was being used for regular
weekend worship by some 25
Jews in the area who contributed
to the upkeep of the

H olocaust Lessons Must be Learned
About a year ago I visited the
infamous Nazi death camp at
Auschwitz. Words can never
express the revulsion and horror
I felt there Even now. almost a
generation after the terror of the
Holocaust, the appalling reality
of what happened during those
dark days is still beyond com-
The Holocaust was an enor-
mous tragedy, but it would be an
even greater tragedy if we failed
to learn the lessons it can teach
us. It would be blind optimism to
declare it could never happen
WHATEVER the lessons of
that terrible period may be they
must be learned and relearned in
each generation if a second
holocaust or a third or fourth
is to be avoided.
That is one reason why the
'Holocaust' television series is an
important and valuable
production. Not only does it
dramatically recount those tragic
days but it forces us to ask,
"What responsibility do we have
today to make sure such a
monstrous evil does not happen
What are some of the lessons
we must learn from the
Holocaust of Hitler's Germany?
First, we must learn what
happens when we refuse to accept
responsibility for those who
suffer injustice and oppression,
whatever the reason may be.
LIKE THE men in Jesus'
The Holocaust television series.
which has aroused tretnendout

by the renowned evangelical
preacher, Hilly Graham,

Parable of the Good Samaritan
who passed by on the other side
and refused to aid the injured
man, so the world by and large
refused to come to the aid of the
Jewish people in Nazi Germany
until it was too late.
Yes, there are many examples
of courage on the part of in-
dividuals who rescued both Jews
and non-Jews who were marked
for death. But far too many gave
silent assent to Hitler's schemes,
although his planned ex-
termination of the Jewish race in
Germany was clear.
This was true not just for those
under Hitler's rule, but for
leaders and nations who refused
to take steps to help the Jews
until it was too late.
learn from the Holocaust is the
reality of evil in our world.
Germany was one of the most
advanced and sophisticated
societies the world has ever
Its people were educated, and
some of its leaders held advanced
of all this, Hitler's twisted
philosophy persuaded some of his
nation's finest minds.
How could it happen? There is
no rational answer to explain the
hatred and barbarism which
characterized the Third Reich.
There was instead something
demonic about the evil which
permeated those days.
THAT PERIOD of history
should warn us against the very
real presence of evil which lurks
just beneath the surface of our
lives, and which must be
recognized and fought. The
Holocaust, ultimately, was a
spiritual issue, just as evil in
every generation is spiritual.
As a Christian, I believe evil
can only be fought with spiritual
strength strength that comes
from bevond man's own
resources, from God Himself. 1
A further lesson we must learn
is the frightening consequences
which come when God is ex-
cluded from life. From the Judeo-
Christian tradition have come the
moral and spiritual values which
have undergirded western
civilization for centuries. From
the Ten Commandments and the
Sermon on the Mount have come
convictions about right ana
wrong which have influenced our
whole legal system.

e was asked to serve as Cam-

When I heard about a most creative unit that the kin-
dergarten class at the JCC pre-school recently covered, I just had
to tell you about it. During a study on careers, these 5-year-olds
enjoyed the knowledge and know-how of ten willing and en-
thusiastic parents:
Tony Albano, of Tropical Market, showed the children
different cuts of meat and marked prices on their hands with his
pricing machine.
Cindi Sirverman, a speech pathologist, demonstrated the
machine she uses for hearing tests and let the students hear
their voices on her tape recorder. *
Dr. Gary Laxmorebrought in tools of his trade including a
stethoscope, a machine to take blood pressure, and some x-rays.
Bob Kehoe, of Trend Publications, brought an artist from
his magazine who drew cartoons for the class.
Vic Borod, a salesman for Nikon, showed the children how a
camera compares to the human eye and he took pictures of their
Jeff Davidson, a CPA, let each student try his adding
machine and gave them blank tax forms and pencils on which to
practice their numbers.
Jerityn Goldsmith, a housewife, discussed her occupation
which is really a combination of many jobs such as cook,
chauffeur, and nurse.
Dr. Stuart Goldsmith, applied a cast to one of the children's
Carol Leiber and Carol Weinstem taught them aerobic
Also, the kindegarten class toured the JCC where each staff
member talked about his job.
Our heartiest congratulations to Dr. and Mrs. Fred Shafrin
on the birth of their first child, Jason Todd. Jason was born on
Dec. 10 at Women's Hospital and weighed 7 pounds, 8 ounces.
The proud grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Morris Paley and Mr.
and Mrs. Alan Shafrin, all of Wisconsin.
On Dec. 13, a 5th anniversary celebration (tea and
desserts), was held in lieu of the bi-monthly management
meeting at the Jewish Towers. At this time, Juliet Rodriguez,
manager of the Towers, awarded numerous certificates,
medallions, and holiday gifts to the many people who so faith-
fully aid the successful running of the Towers.

Why a Bar Mitzvah ati72?
Nathan I. Gordon will observe his second Bar Mitzvah this
evening at Congregation Schaarai Zedek. Gordon explains the
reasons for his doing so for the benefit of the readers of "The
Jewish Floridian of Tampa."
If you wonder why I'm having a Bar Mitzvah at age 72, I
have good reasons.
Reason One: I never had the experience of being a Bar Mit-
zvah in today's fashion. In Europe, the Orthodox tradition is
that an orphan becomes Bar Mitzvah at age 12.
In 1919, our small shtetel was under the rule of the newly
formed Polish government. Our area was in the process of
recovering from the ravages of four warring and changing
Food became less scarce at this time. My older brother
arranged for me to come to the bimah in the small shtibl and
recite the brocha. That was that.
Reason Two: The Mishna tells us, "Increase your knowledge,
or you decrease it." In preparation for my talk, I began
studying the Torah in more detail. In so doing, Rabbi Sundheim
gives me the opportunity of sharing my thoughts with the
congregation. In sharing, I gain. It is my thinking that the Holy
Scrolls (the Torah) give great guidelines for today's being. This
is my message.

Elaine Fantle Shimberg is author of "How to Be a Successful
Housewife / Writer: Bylines and Babies Do Mix" (writer's
Digest Books) and is presently co-authoring a book on double
career marriages for Prentice-Hall. She is a Tampa free-lance
writer and the mother of five children.
There must be a special place in heaven reserved for wives
who have nursed their husbands through flu or colds.
Mother counseled me on a number of things on my pre-nuptial
eve "Never starch his shirts"; "Cook pot roast the way his
mother does"; "Don't move the furniture around more than once
a month" but she neglected to mention how to cope with a
sick husband.
All literature (male) proclaims that the female is the nurturing
sex put on earth to fuss over babies, raise children, and tend
to the sick but other than a casual mumble about "in sickness
and in health" at the wedding ceremony, most of us had no idea
that white stockings and a white starched uniform was part of
our trousseau.
IT CAME to me gradually. For years I noticed that when
women gathered together they usually compared notes on who
had the longest labor, who had the most stitches and whose
arthritis was most painful. But the star of any gathering, the
woman who won the most votes of sympathy, the "heroine of
the year," was she who said, "My husband is sick with the flu."
No one could top that.
"Men are terrible patients." That litany is as familiar to me as
"Have a nice day," and "God bless you" to a sneezer. But did
you ever consider that possibly just possibly women are
terrible patients too? It's just that we can't take the time to find
out. Nobody takes care of sick mothers!
Recently, I visited a woman friend of mine in the hospital.
Her head was swathed in bandages. "I love the feeling of being
waited on and cared for," she said. "How long can I stay?"
The hospital world revolved around her. She had become
introspective. Was that pain more or less? Was her temperature
higher or lower? She hadn't had so much attention since her
SHE LOOKED forward with unashamed delight to the meals.
(Someone else cooked, served and washed up afterwards.) Even
choosing the meals was fun did she want bar-b-que peppers or
creamed steamed cabbage? Cold cream-of-corn or melted ice
cream? She pondered over her menu selections like a high school
student over her SAT.
"Even the blood lady with her tray of tubes, bottles and
needles was a welcomed respite," my friend responded. The
daily visit of the doctor was, too (although 87.9 percent of all
patients report that they either were in the bathroom or at X-ray
when the doctor made his appearance).
Her day drifted on like fluffy clouds on a spring day. The
rabbi came to call; she watched the worst of television offerings;
she admitted that her mind was turning to watery jello (like the
stuff they served at snack time).
"I forgot to ask you," I said. "What happened to your head?
Why are you here?"
SHE TURNED her deep-set eyes towards me, her face lined
with exhaustion. "It's a concussion," she said. "My husband
had been home sick with the flu for two weeks. The day he went
back to work, he slipped and twisted his knee. The doctor
prescribed a week of bed rest at home. So I did what any red-
blooded American woman would have."
I patted her hand sympathetically. I would have knocked my
head against the wall, too!____________,_______________

Daf Yomi
Nervus Ischiadicus
The Torah states: "The sun rose upon him as he (Jacob)
passed over Peniel, and he limped upon his thigh. Therefore, the
children of Israel do not eat the sinew of the thigh-vein (sciatic
nerve) which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day;
because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh, even in the
sinew of the thigh-vein (sciatic-nerve)."
The Torah forbids the eating of the Gid-Hanashe sciatic
nerve which runs through the hind-quarter of the animal. The
hind-quarter of the animal is as kosher as any other part of the
animal that has been ritually slaughtered. When the sinew and
its adjoining blood vessels are removed, the meat may be eaten.
However, since the vein and the nerve system which travels
down the back of the leg are so complex, it takes a great deal of
skill to purge this section of meat and yet leave the hind-quarter
intact. In our country most butchers do not possess this skill;
therefore, the hind-quarter is sold with non-kosher meat. In the
State of Israel there are special men called minakrim who
remove the gid-hanashe expertly and thus the hind-quarter of
the animal is sold in the kosher butcher shops.
THERE ARE many reasons given as to why the gid-
hanashe (sciatic nerve) was forbidden to be eaten, together with
other arteries and tendons.
Jacob had been living with his father-in-law, Laban, and
working as a ahepard for 20 years. During this time, he married
Leah and Rachel. Each of the brides received a maidservant
from her father, Laban, as a wedding present. Jacob's marriage
to Leah was a trickery practiced by Laban, substituting under
the cover of darkness, the older daughter for the younger
daughter, Rachel. This act was determined by Divine
Providence, for from this union issued the Priesthood from Levi
and the Davidic Monarchy from Judah, both sons of Leah.
After the birth of Joseph, father Jacob decided to return
home for he had heard his mother Rebeccah had died, and his
father Isaac was old and blind. On his journey home, he heard
that his brother Esau was coining to meet him with an army of
400 men. Uncertain of the reception he would receive from his
brother Esau, he made extensive preparations to appease him as
well as to prepare for the worst. He forded the River Jabbok and
sent his family and belongings ahead. Returning to pick up some
things he left behind, he found himself wrestling with a heavenly
being, a mysterious stranger, who, desperate to get away before
dawn, changed Jacob's name to Israel but also left him limping,
caused by a dislocated thigh.
Maimonides (Rambam) is of the opinion that this whole
event was a Prophetic Vision.
IN THE DEAD of night, Jacob was alone with God.
There in the darkness, full of anxieties and fears, God's
messenger wrestled with him who had so often himself wrestled
with men and had won by sheer persistence. This mysterious
encounter of our Patriarch Jacob has become the universal
human allegory of the struggles on the eve of some dreadful
crisis. Jacob prevails and becomes Israel (Prince of God).
As the sun rises, Jacob is limping on his thigh, injured
during the struggle with the angle. He was injured because his
family left him alone. From this we learn the lesson that we are
responsible to look out for the safety of others. The prohibition
of the gid-hanashe is a reminder of this lesson.
Some commentaries say that this restriction is to remind us
of the everlasting struggle Israel must wage when living in the
dark in Guloth away from his home and land. The thigh is in-
cncative of children who are the most vulnerable to the
surrounding cultures in which they reside, thus making them
limp when it comes to their own spiritual and cultural heritage.
With the modern packaging of kosher meats, we have lost
much knowledge of what methods are to be used for observance
of Kashruth and with it the loss of "Nikur," the removal of the
sciatica nerve." Ask Your rabbi.

Welfare Funds and Community
Councils which serve nearly 800
communities and embrace over
95 percent of the Jewish
population of the United States

Established in 1932, the
Council serves as a national
instrument to strengthen the
work and the impact of Jewish
Federations through leadership
in developing programs to meet
changing needs in the Jewish
community: through the ex-
change of successful experiences
to assure the most effective
community services; through
establishing guidelines for fund

through joint national planning
and action on common purposes
dealing with local, regional,

U.S. Can't Decide Israel

their five-day meeting here that
"American Jews should
remember the ancient teaching
that Jews should not put their
trust in princes. As American
citizens we should support our
government if we conceive it to
be right. We should oppose it if
we deem it to be in the wrong."
The former Ambassador, who
served as Secretary of Labor
under President Kennedy and
was appointed to the U.S.
Supreme Court by President
Johnson, cautioned against any
"confrontation" between Israel
and the United States.
"There may be and there are
differences, inevitable in matters
of foreign policy where no one can
be sure of the correct answers,"
he said. "But there must never be
a severance of the special
relationship that exists between
Israel and the United States."
"avoidance of such a severance
requires sensitivity and restraint
both on the part of our gover-
nment and the government of
Israel. Israel must recognize that
the United States has global
interests and concerns," he said.
"The United States must be
sensitive to the fact that Israel is
a sovereign country with
democratic institutions which
chart the nation's course."
American Jews must also "ac-
cept this reality," Goldberg said.
He added: "It is academic to
argue whether American Jews
should speak publicly about their
differences with the decisions of

Israel's democratically elected
government. American Jews, like
all Americans, are accustomed to
the right of free speech and,
rightly or wrongly, will exercise
it. But in the final analysis,
Israel's leadership elected by
its democratic processes must
make the final determination on
the peace issue and all others
affecting its sovereignty."
ON THE identification of
American Jews with Israel,
Goldberg said: "Israel is central
to Jewish life in America and
wherever Jews exist. There is no
need either to deny this or
apologize for what is an in-
disputable fact. The concept of
dual loyalty is not even wor-
thwhile discussing, except to say
that it must and should be

TV Debate
Buckley Refutes Jackson Middle East Stand
William Buckley, the
conservative author and
syndicated columnist, and
Rev. Jesse Jackson, head
of Operation PUSH, have
locked horns over the issue
of whether the United
States should recognize the
Palestine Liberation
Their debate, before
faculty, students and
guests at Hillsdale College,
Hillsdale, Mich., was
featured on the television
program, "Firing Line,"
televised here by Chan. 13
of the Public Broadcasting
"Resolved, the United States
Should Deny Recognition to the
PLO." Buckley spoke in favor of
that resolution. Jackson, who
aroused a storm of controversy
when he visited the Middle East
and met with PLO chief Yasir
Arafat following the resignation
of the U.S. Ambassador to the
UN, Andrew Young, was op-
Other participants in the
debate included Prof. Allen
Weinstein, a professor of history
at Smith College, and Abdeen
Jabara, chairman of the Palestine
Human Rights Campaign.
Buckley, at the outset, ex-
pressed skepticism of the PLO's
claim to represent "four million
Palestinians," a figure he said
that was supplied by Jackson,
who are scattered among a dozen
countries in the Middle East and
remains bound by its Charter,
adopted in 1964 and revised in
1967, which holds that armed
struggle is the only way to
achieve Palestinian goals, that it
is the overall stragegy, not a
tactical phase and that by the
liberation of Palestine, the PLO
refers to the entire State of Israel.

Buckley noted, in that con-
nection, that the PLO Charter
holds as "illegal" not only the
1947 Palestine partition
resolution of the United Nations
but the Palestine Mandate and
the Balfour Declaration as well.
He also emphasized that the
PLO is an umbrella organization
covering 13 or 14 fedayeen
groups that engage in in-
ternational terrorism as a matter
of policy. He noted that one of
those groups, Dr. George
Habash's Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine (PFLP),
has been linked by U.S. Air Force
intelligence to terrorist groups
active in 14 countries, not
necessarily associated with the
Middle East conflict.
JACKSON maintained that
the American public is not told
the "whole story" of the Middle
East. He claimed that the PLO

has offered a secular democratic
state in Palestine, including
Israel, in which Christians, Jews
and Moslems could live in amity.
Since this was rejected by
Israel, the PLO is willing to
compromise and accept a
Palestinian state on the Gaza
Strip and the West Bank which
comprise only 23 percent of the
territory that was Palestine in
1948, Jackson said.
According to Jackson, the
central strategy of the PLO is not
terrorism but diplomacy. "The
PLO does engage in terrorism
and we deplore that," he said.
"But it is just one dimension of
their activity." The real power in
the PLO is not the terrorists, he
said, but the educated
Palestinians, doctors, lawyers,
businessmen and skilled workers
who make valuable contributions
to the countries in which they

Fulton J. Sheen.

Cardinal Cooke, Rabbi Tanenbaum recalled his
participation with Archbishop Sheen in one of the
first Catholic-Jewish dialogues following Vatican
Council II. Quoting from Archbiship Sheen's
remarks made in Rochester at that gathering,
Rabbi Tanenbaum declared that the Archbishop
had spoken of his determination to "educate our
own people to a deeper understanding of our faith
and how much we owe to the Jewish people ... I
tell you Christian people that to deny this
heritage and this background would be like
denying your own heritage."
Rabbi Tanenbaum added: "I will never forget
those moving words nor will I ever forget the life
and warmth of my friend, Archbishop Sheen."
