Israel. Most of those attending
the luncheon have been to Israel
themselves."
TAMPA WOMEN attending
the luncheon will find Mrs.
Hassenfeld an exceptional
woman.
"Enthusiasm ha9 been
gratifying," Mrs. Saul added.
"This year our campaign
response is almost 50 percent
above last year's commitments,
compared to the same pledges in
1979," she declared.
A dynamic leader of the
American Jewish community,
Mrs. Hassenfled is an articulate
spokesperson, now playing an
increasing leadership role in
Jewish community campaign
activities. She's immediate past
chairman of the United Jewish
Appeal's National Women's
Division and its current
president.
In keeping with the occasion,
both decor and food will be extra
special. "We're trying to have the
luncheon as elegant and special
as our guest of honor," said Mrs.
Linick.
Flowers, arranged by Roberta
Golding, will be on the tables and
at various places throughout the
house. A selection of fine
California wines will be served.
For those attending, a special
"bonus" can be expected, co-
chairman Mrs. Saul pointed out:
"IT'S A FEELING each
person there has. All feel in-
volved in something above and
beyond the ordinary. A special
comraderie develops among the
people attending the luncheon."
"There's a special kind of
satisfaction that comes from
knowing you are making an
extraordinary gift," Mrs. Saul
said. "Anyone can go out
and spend a lot of money on a
gift. But to give it gladly and
willingly to this particular effort
provides a special sense of
satisfaction. It makes the people
attending the Pacesetters
Luncheon kind of special in their
own right."
Mrs. Saul then extended an
open invitation "to women in the
Jewish community to join with
us in this very fulfilling en-
deavor."
Mrs. Herbert J. (Nellye)
Friedman, one of Tampa's most
respected community leaders,
has been appointed chairman of
the arrangements committee for
the Tampa Jewish Federation's
1980 campaign inaugural dinner
by Mike Levine, General
Campaign Chairman.
CBS television newscaster
Marvin Kalb, a specialist on
affairs of Israel and the Middle
East, will be keynote speaker for
the dinner, to be held at the Host
International Hotel Feb. 9.
Assisting Mrs. Friedman on
the dinner committee is Mrs.
Harold (Sue) Suther, well-known
gourmet cooking teacher.
A native of Oca la and resident
of Tampa since 1931, Mrs.
Friedman has distinguished
herself as successful chairman of
several major community fun-
ctions. Her most recent
achievement was the chair-
manship of the 85th anniversary
of Temple Schaarai Zedek. She is
also chairman of the dedication

Concern Mounts Over
Syria War on Israel
By GIL SEDAN
And YITZHAK SHARGIL
JERUSALEM (JTA)
A senior American
source said that there was
no reason to fear that Syria
is heading toward war with
Israel. The source, quoted
by Kol Israel Radio, was
apparently responding to
expressions of concern by
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin over the growing
Soviet presence in Syria
and the continued flow of
Soviet weaponry to that
country.
According to Kol Israel, the
American source acknowledged
that Syria has received large
arms supplies from the USSR but
said there were no indications
that the size of the flow has in-
creased in the last few days. The
source was also quoted as saying
that if Israel is attacked, there is
no reason to doubt U.S. readiness
to help her.
THE SOURCE added, how-
ever, that if Israel were to initiate
diplomatic moves on the Pales-
tinian issue, it should help cool
down any unrest in the neigh-
boring countries.
The potential threat from Syria
was referred to by Begin twice in
the last two days. He spoke of it
to a group of visiting British Par-
liamentarians. He repeated
Israel's concern to reporters after
briefing President Yitzhak
Navon on his summit meeting
with President Anwar Sadat at
Aswan.
Begin said Syria has drawn
closer to Moscow which con-
tinues to supply it with arms and
therefore Israel must remain
alert. According to Begin, the
Soviets seek to create tension
along the Israeli-Syrian border in
order to divert internationa'
attention from theirincunion into
Afghanistan.
ISRAELI SOURCES esti-
mated the number of Soviet
military personnel in Syria at
1,500. The sources said they had
no confirmation of foreign press
reports that an additional 500
Russians arrived in Damascus
last week. Russian officers and
other ranks were said to be
helping the Syrians absorb the
new weapons which reportedly
include MIG-25 fighters and T-72
tanks.
Campaign
Reaches
$350,000
As of Jan. SI, Michael
Levine, 1980 Federation
Campaign General chairman,
reported the campaign has
reached S350.000
representing 130 con-
tributors. Levine noted this
represents a 51.2 percent
increase for the same pledges
in 1979.
"Our campaign leadership
has responded to our
message of urgency to meet
the rapidly growing needs of
our local community and
world Jewry. We are con-
fident that the entire Jewish
community will respond in
like manner so that we will
attain the $1 million goal so
vital to fulfilling the needs of
our community," Levine
said.

Attitudes 'Adventure' To Be Held At JCC
"Adventures in Attitudes" if
scheduled to begin Sunday, Feb.
24, 6 to 9 p.m. at the Tampa
Jewish Community Center.
It is open to anyone from age
16 and up.
Classes will be conducted by
Dr. David and Rudina Richter,
who are certified coordinators.
"Some people spend more time
maping out a trip to Bush
Gardens than mapping out their
lives," according to Dr. Richter.
Adventures in Attitudes is a
positive, nonthreatening ap-
proach using group involvement,
the printed word, self develop-
ment projects, and audio tapes to
more fully utilize human effort
and potential.
It is a 30-hour programmed
experience in the change and
mastery of attitudes,
imagination, and personal skills
to achieve motivated ef-
fectiveness in family, work and
social situations.
The ten major units of the
seminar are:
The Dynamics of Attitudes;
Managing Your Thinking;
Personal Motivation and How it
Affects Your Job; Under-
standing People and Their
Problems; Personality Traits and
The Challenge of Change;
Interpersonal Relationships;
Effective Communications and
Listening; Attitudes Toward
Your Profession; Setting Coals

Mrs. Friedman Will
Chair Kalb Dinner
Continued from Page 1
upon her discharge in 1946.
She served as assistant
director of the Jewish Com-
munity Center (1946-48),
president of Schaarai Zedek
Sisterhood (1962-63) and
chairman of the Women's
Division, Tampa Jewish Welfare
Federation, in 1967. She was
appointed to the state Welfare
Board in the mid-60s by then
Governor Hayden Burns.
Mrs. Friedman, secretary
treasurer of Southern Mill Creek
Products, is the wife of Herbert
J. Friedman, president of
Southern Mill Creek Products,
which they founded.
The Friedman's have four
children: Mary (Mrs. Theodore
A. Kramer) of Seminole, Fla.:
William, who lives in St.
Petersburg and is married to the
former Susan Berkowitz of St.
Petersburg; Frances, a
recreational therapist in
Columbia, S.C., and Frank, a
dental student at the University
of Florida.
The Kramers are the parents of
the Friedmans' three grand-
children, Robert C, Rebecca, and
Jennifer Nan.
Those attending the Kalb
dinner will have made a minimum
commitment of S1,000 to the 1980
Tampa Jewish Federation UJA
campaign. The Tampa goal for
this year's drive is S1.000,000.
Michael Levine, 1980 Tampa
Jewish Federation campaign
chairman, said a cocktail party
beginning at 7 p.m. and dinner at
8 p.m. will precede Kalb's talk.
DISTINGUISHED looking
and authoritative in his remarks,
Kalb has been with the CBS
broadcast family more than 20
years. He joined CBS in 1957
after working for the U.S.
Embassy in Moscow and
studying and teaching Russian
and Chinese history at Harvard
University.
With the current shaky
situation caused by Russia's
military excursion into
Afghanistan and its potential
threat to the oil fields of Iran
filling the air waves with daily
drama and apprehension, a
speaker of Kalb's background
and authority is considered a

A member of the prestigious
Council on Foreign Affairs, Kalb
has spoken before similar groups
in the United States, Western
Europe, Japr a and the Middle
East, providing insights into the
personalities and policies of the
last six American ad-
ministrations based upon his own
observations and experiences.
His 20-some years in the news
field has helped Kalb develop into
a magnetic lecturer and prolific
writer. He is the author or co-
author of five works of non-
fiction, including his best-selling
biography, "Kissinger," and one
work of fiction, the best-selling
thriller, "In the National
Interest."
IN ALMOST three decades of
news gathering traveling
abroad with presidents and
secretaries of state Kalb has
reported on the wars and the
summits that have affected the
lives of two generations of
Americans, including Korea and
Vietnam, the Nixon-Kruschchev
debate and confrontation, the
Cuban missile crisis, the Nixon-
Brezhnev summits, the shuttle
diplomacy of Henry Kissinger
and the evangelistic foreign
policy of Jimmy Carter.
Kalb has been awarded more
than a dozen prizes for "Best
Interpretation of Foreign News"
on radio and television. He has
written long reports for The New
York Times Magazine and is
currently involved in a new novel
about treachery in the White
House.
Tickets are now on sale at the
Jewish Community Center office
for the JCC preschool spaghetti

; to Irwin Field, national
lan.
iportant issues have
[to create the increased
or. They are: "Tran-
Peace," "Growing
ewish Migration," "The
of Inflation" and
I Renewal."
I world of atomic bombs,
of peace has been
rusly high for America,
cause peace can only
come with a strong national
defense. That is especially true in
Israel, where its borders be so
close to traditional enemies. It is
estimated the terms of the treaty
with Egypt will cost as much as
$10 billion over the next three
years.
THE AVERAGE American
has no concept of what Israel has
to concede in the interest of
peace. Redeployment of Israel's
defense forces air bases, early
warning systems, port facilities,
installations and personnel
from the Sinai to the Negev will
cost Israel from $4 to 14 5 billion.
Israel is suffering another
great loss one Americans can
understand today: Oil. Yielding
Sinai oil fields means giving up
22 percent of Israel's supply:
developing alternate sources will
cost an estimated f 160 million a
year.
U.S. assistance for re-
deployment will be a maximum
of S3 billion. All but $800 million
is in the form of loans which must
be repaid. That means a new
indebtedness aggravating an
already crushing national debt.
Does peace mean a reduced
national defense budget? Not
hardly. In the face of continued
PLO terrorism and con-
frontation, national defense will
continue to consume at least 30
percent of Israel's gross national
budget.
The sum $300 million seems
like a staggering amount. But
that's what it will cost to move
Sinai settlements to the Negev.
Populating the Galilee will
require millions more. When
priorities in the national budget
are weighed, it is inevitable that
social programs will suffer.
THE JEWISH Agency is
being called upon to take up this
slack. It is assuming greater

responsibility for inaugurating a
special plan for development of
19 new settlements in the Pithat
Shalom In the Negev and
planning 28 mini-settlements in
the Gauilee in the next three
years. American Jewry's share of
the 1980 start-up cost for the
Pithat Shalom plan is 116
million.
Growing Soviet Jewish
migration is another reason why
our Tampa Jewish Federation's
campaign must be successful this
year. Israel needs $36 million
from its fellow Jews in America
to help absorb and expand social
programs for double last year's
total of Soviet immigrants.
Inflation, the villain that
delights in cutting dollar value
almost daily, passed the 13
percent figure in the United
States in 1979. And Americans
are crying the blues. But in
Israel, the annual inflation rate
was close to 50 percent in 1978.
In 1979, the figure has hit the 100
percent mark!
America's Jewish community
has made a $400 million com-
mitment to help rejuvenate 160
distressed urban neighborhoods
in Israel over the next five years
and give new hope to 300,000
immigrants. Project Renewal is
becoming a reality, thanks to
American help.
SUBSTANTIAL con-
tributions are needed toward that
$400 million goal. Residents of
the depressed neighborhoods
have launched a grassroots ef-
fort, with active self-help
programs and solid planning.
Now. More than aver. The need
for commitment, here and
abroad, is in evidence.
In Israel; Ongoing and ex-
panded human-support programs
$36 million. The special peace
program $16 million.
In Transit; Aid to Soviet
Jewish transmigrants in Vienna
and Rome $8 million.
At Home; Increased cost of
resettling Soviet Jewish im-
migrants $19 million. Over-
coming inflationary increases and
expanding local programs to
meet the growing needs of our
families, our elderly and our
youth $19 million
This commitment weighs
heavily on the conscience of
Tampa's Jewish community,
committed to raise $1 million in
1980 just as it faces Jewish
Federations in cities throughout
America this year.
Now. More than ever.
Rabbi Ralph Kingsley of
Temple Sinai, Miami, will be the
guest of the Tampa Jewish
Federation Young Leadership
Development, Group II program,
"Jewish Agenda for the 1980's,"
to be held Feb. 2, at the home of
Dr. Norman and Jane Rosenthal.
This is the third program for
this group so far. Past programs
have included, Aaron Rosenbaum
from Washington, D.C.,
discussing "Myths and Facts
Surrounding the Arab-Israeli
Conflict" and Stephen Sussman,
National Young Leadership
Cabinet chairman from
Philadelphia speaking on Jewish
history "a continuum through
the ages." Approximately 40 to
60 persons attended each fun-
ction which is usually hosted by a
member of the cabinet.

Israel and the Olympics
Just as we suspected, and suggested in our
columns before, President Carter's plea for a boycott
of the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow is perhaps the
most important recommendation of the many he
made to pressure the Soviets out of Afghanistan.
We note with some considerable regret Israel's
inclination not to comply. The Israelis have already
indicated that their participation in the games might
serve as a quid pro quo for Russian concessions on
the fate of the dissidents.
We think not. The Muscovite thumbscrews set
upon Andrei Sakharov this week, one of the Soviet
Union's most distinguished scientists, suggests that
the country's leaders would hardly be amenable to
making deals involving Jewish dissidents .Moreover,
as we understand it, there is something self-deluding
in the view that the Israelis may have of the worth of
their participation in the 1980 Games.
To begin with, considerable pressure was placed
upon the Soviets to send the Israelis an invitation in
the first place in the name of the greatest delusion of
allthat politics play no role in the Olympics.
More important, it is incontrovertibly true that,
however noble their efforts and however proud of
their participation we may be, the Israeli athletes are
not top drawer, and it would be no loss to the worth
of the Games were the Israelis not to participate in
the same sense that it would be an absolute disaster
were the Americans not to participate.
As distasteful as this may seem to us, Israel's
participation in the Games is something that the
dictator hosts are merely suffering, and this attitude
hardly suggests that the Soviets would be amenable
to making trades in the cause of guaranteeing ac-
ceptance of the invitation.
By now, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Samuel
Lewis has met with Prime Minister Begin in
Jerusalem to discuss just this issue, and we hope
that Israel stands at the side of the United States.
The contemptible prospect of having the Olympics in
Moscow should have been sufficient to put par-
ticipants off in the first place, Afghanistan or no
Afghanistan.
Sadat's New Bellicosity
The vehemence with which Egypt has rejected
Israel's most recent recommendations for autonomy
for the Arabs in Gaza and the West Bank is merely a
sign of things to come. Add to this, President
Sadat's provocative statements about the need for
the Moslem flag frying over East Jerusalem,
meaning the division of Israel's capital city once
again.
What everyone prefers taforget isthatPresident
Sadat is getting, without firing a shot and with the
help of "my good friend, Jimmy I Carter.'' every
possible concession he has wanted from the hide of
Israel. Why should he not be friendly?
As the concessions will come harder and har-
derthese on issues relating to his attempt to
reestablish himself as the leader of the Arab world, it
should not be surprising that he will become more
and more bellicose. Sadat has not parted from his
erstwhile view of the role of Egypt in Araby. Nor has
he parted from his friendships in that world except
temporarily in the cause of facilitating his peaceful
conquest of Israel's domain.
Once that is achieved, the honeymoon will be
over. We anticipate no real marriage at all. Is this too
harsh? Perhaps so. But the signs are already there,
the Jan. 26 normalization heralding a new era not-
withstanding.

Justice Douglas:Personal Mei
FOB ALL the wrong reasons,
the dearth of Justice William O
Douglas leaves me in a state of
Md reverie. In April. 1967 I
shared the American Histadrut
Foundation's Isaac Hemlin
Memorial Award with Justice
Douglas, which was presented to
both of us at a stellar banquet.
For him, the occasion must
have been but a slender strand on
the richly-textured fabric of his
miraculous existence. For me, it
was a high point of achievement;
although I recognize that my own
participation in it was almost
surely an accident of choice
forged in the vacuum of pro-
fessional whim.
STILL. I savor the memory
and especially the opportunity
that was given to me by the
occasion to speak with Justice
Douglas fo- hours beforehand
about some oi the landmark cases
in which he wrote those long and
scholarly opinions of his foot-
noted by references to the
Talmud or Camus, English or
Roman law, even to the
Upanishads. It did not matter to
him. the sources of wisdom. His
was an intellect that saw great-
ness in the mind of man wherever
man lives and whenever man
lived.
In this sense. Justice Douglas
was himself a representation of
universal mankind, not of narrow

There were not many Jows left

First Temple.

By
LINDA GOLDSTEIN
44-year-old man recently
e to Ow Tampa Jewish Social
ice asking for help.
e was out of jail on bond,
owing his arrest on a morals
ge, and was "extremely
ressed and suicidal," ac-
rding to Social Service
utive director Anne Thai.
["Initially, we arranged some
>rt-term hospitalization, then
on-going counselling, plus
istance in getting the ap-
priate legal counsel to fight
charge," Thai recounts.
OBVIOUSLY, this kind of
ident is' far from a front page
ry.
ut what makes it unique to
iy people in the Tampa
ish community is that the
described above is Jewish.
Jewish people have a ten-
cy to believe that they are
une from those kind; of
blems.
You .don't,' want to believe it of
s, yet they're poor, their
th fails, they Deat their
as, they are suicidal, they
k, and they need a place to
'Thai says.
And when, they're in trouble,
have a place to go in Tampa
the Tampa Jewish Social
ice.
[AFTER RELYING on
lunteers for 20 years, Tampa
ish Social Service was
jrganized along professional
bs in 1974, with Anne Thai as
cutive director.
Ms. Thai now directs a staff of
four full-time and two-part time
people to offer professional social
service to the community.
The agency's responsibilities
include counseling for Jewish
citizens of all ages, ranging from
pre-schoolers or Hillel students
who may need evaluating to
families who seek group therapy
to senior citizens who need
counselling.
Tampa Jewish Social Service is
also responsible for coordinating
the Russian Resettlement
Program, which supervises the
integration of Russian families
into the Tampa Jewish com-
munity. To date, 13 Russian
families have settled here, in the
three-and-a-half year duration of
the program.
"IN A SMALL community, an
agency like ours is really all
things to all people," Thai ex-
plains, citing functions such as
resettlement, administering a
massive caseload, addressing the
special needs of the elderly, and
focusing on vocational problems,
through a Job Corps to match up
people looking for work with
employers seeking staff.
One clear indication of just
what Thai means is by reviewing
a "typical" day at Tampa Jewish
Social Service. The cases cited
below are slightly camouflaged to
protect the identities of the
persons needing help.
But here is a sampling of who
comes to Social Service on a
given day:
9 A 74-year-old woman who
had been widowed not too long
ago turned to alcohol for refuge.
One of her friends, concerned that
the woman could not control her
drinking, contacted Social
Service for assistance.
A 16-vear-old girl
Social Service Helps Others
heavily into drugs and wanted to
drop out of school. Her parents
came to Tampa Jewish Social
Service seeking help for her drug
problem and family counselling,
enabling all members to bridge
the communication gap that had
developed.
An elderly gentleman who
was having trouble with his
medicaid assistance for the last
six months appealed to Social
Service; he was illiterate in
English and couldn't read the
letters the government had been
sending him.
Again, all of the above people
are Jewish, as are those involved
in the 200 cases that are currently
open at Tampa. Jewish Social
Service. About 75 of those cases
involve senior citizens.
THERE ARE approximately
100 families also seeking
guidance at Social Service.
"One of the things we've been
concerned about is the 'blended
family,' Thai says. This is
where the marriage is the second
for each party, and conflict arises
in establishing a new family
structure with the children from
previous marriages.
Tampa Jewish Social Service
has still another function: it acts
as an intermediary between
Jewish people and the public
agencies that may be strangling
them with red tape.
"People who have trouble with
medical or social security
problems came to us for help with
the system," Thai explains.
Social Service is assisted by
several dozen volunteers, who
undergo training programs
before they actually assist the
staff.
ONE OPERATION extremely
dependent upon volunteer
'support is the Russian Resettle-
ment Program, where Tampans
provide services ranging from
transportation, translation, to
medical and dental care. About
70 doctors and dentists have
donated their services to the
Russians.
Even so, the Russian Resettle-
ment Program is costly,
averaging about $3,500 to settle a
family of four in Tampa for three
months.
The Tampa Jewish Social
Service operates on a limited
budget, with all funds received
from the Tampa Jewish
Federation.
The only outside assistance
comes from grants, such as the
one the agency receives from the
Older Americans Act, which
significantly supplements the
kinds of services it can provide
for senior citizens.
ONE OF THE assets of the
Tampa Jewish Social Service is
its location. Thai feels.
"So much of what we've done
has been special because of the
cooperative effort between us and
the Jewish Community Center
and Tampa Jewish Federation."
Since all are housed on the
same grounds, the support
network is that much stronger
when a crisis arises. And like any
agency of its kind, Social Service
has more than its share of
emergencies. But the important
thing, according to Thai, is that
members of the Tampa Jewish
community know that there is
somewhere special for them to go
when a crisis befalls them.
By stopping by Social Services
headquarters at 2808 Horatio
Street or calling the office at 872-
4451, they can take that crucial
first step toward getting the help
they need.

Gladys Leitman of "Two's Company" might be just the
person you are looking for, as she is providing a much needed
service in the Bay area. Gladys has been called upon many times
to help friends find that something special they were looking for.
A love for fashion and a demand for her talent led to the for-
mation of "Two's Company."
Her services start with a wardrobe analysis and build on
what the client already owns. From there, she consults with the
client to determine what the needs and desires of the owner
might be. She has helped with wardrobes for special occasions
such as Bar Mitzvahs, weddings, and vacations. Others, she
says, want their clothes inventoried seasonally, trying to keep
up to date with fashion. This she feels, is the most practical and
economical way to save and to utilize what you already own.
Gladys aids in pulling your existing wardrobe together by
adding an item or two. She says that seeing a client look and feel
attractive gives her a great sense of satisfaction. So if you don't
know where to turn with your wardrobe, or don't have the time,
or have a special occasion coming up, call Gladys Leitman of
"Two's Company."
Also, you men, if you need a little help in buying that very
special present for your wife or girlfriend, Gladys can help!
On Wednesday, Jan. 8, Helen Gordon Davis was presented
the Hannah G. Solomon award by National Council of Jewish
Women at their annual luncheon. In attendance to see Helen
receive this momentous honor were her husband. Gene, and her
son, Gordon, and his wife Janet. Helen and Gene's two
daughters, Stephanie and Karen, were unable to attend as they
live out of town.
While speaking to me about this special day and how she
felt after receiving such an honor, Helen related this anecdote:
She moved to Tampa in 1947. National Council of Jewish
Women was the first service organization that she ever joined.
The first committee that she co-chaired with Miriam Hirach was
called "Service to Foreign Born."
What this committee would do is find and furnish an apart-
ment; then proceed to the train station to meet incoming Jewish
refugees, take them to their apartment, leave them two fully
cooked, hot kosher meals to welcome them to their new home-
land, and then say goodbye and leave them to begin their new
life.
Helen related that not only was this a tremendous learning
experience, but she is so thankful to NCJW for enabling her to
have these experiences. It is obvious that someone such as
Helen Gordon Davis, who has been giving of herself for so long,
richly deserved this award; but what is so especially nice is that
Helen, in turn, is equally as appreciative to National Council of
Jewish Women for what they have given her.
For all of you prospective campers, on Sunday, Feb. 3,
Camp Blue Star (located in Hendersonville, N.C..) will be

pany. Brian is a member of AZA We are so glad that the
Harrises chose Tampa when they made the decision that they
wanted to move away from the New Jersey weather and come to
a more casual lifestyle.
Until next week .
'Project Share Yourself'
Helps Train Volunteers
"I've been going to workshops
for many years and this was the
best workshop I've ever at-
tended," says Theima Karp, one
of the Project Share Yourself
volunteers at the first of a series
of training sessions for friendly
visitors and nursing home
volunteers held recently at
Tampa Jewish Social Service.
Practical, sensitive and
enlightening experiences as well
as role-playing were part of the
first training in the series.
Twelve hours of orientation
and training on the practical
elements of understanding and
helping the older disabled person
are scheduled.
Those attending all of the
training sessions will receive a
completion certificate from
Tampa Jewish Social Service.
The idea of Project Share
Yourself was conceived by
Congregation Beth Israel
Sisterhood, who later decided to
invite other concerned people to
join them.
Betty Jo Blauner, Tampa Bay
rehabilitation speech therapist, is
the project chairman and Harriet
Cohen, senior social worker of
Tampa Jewish Social Service,
will act as the training coor-
dinator for the project.
The workshops will be held on
the first Monday of each month
at the Jewish Community Center
from 10 a.m. to noon.
The second workshop will be
held on Monday, Feb. 4.
Anyone interested in par-
ticipating in Project Share
Yourself and the training
program may contact Betty Jo
Blauner, 879-1931, or Harriet
Cohen, 872-4461.

Hillel School's tenth an-
niversary will be observed
Saturday night at a gala party.
One parent reflects back on those
difficult days "way back then"
when Hillel School began with 29
students.
By BONNIE HALICZER
According to the laws of
success, it should never have
opened with more than two
grades. More is too much to bite
off,the experts advised.
But then, those who shouted
that a Jewish Day School
shouldn't be at all were so vocal
in 1970. The fact that Hillel was
starting with grades one through
four gave the objectors one more
reason to decry the idea.
There were so many reasons it
would never work, people
claimed:
Tampa wasn't ready. Jewish
kids would be ghettoized. Thev
wouldn't know about the rest of
the world. They would become
too Jewish. Secular studies would
suffer because of time spent on
Judiac lessons. The children
would ruin the synagogue. The
arguments seemed endless.
The negatives really didn't
matter much to the people who
believed that Tampa needed a
Jewish school offering excellence
in Judiac and secular studies.
Especially after visiting the
Hebrew Academy in Miami to
get an idea of what a Jewish
school was like: watching 10-
year-olds converse in Hebrew and
Listening to students joyfully
singing Hebrew tunes after lunch
that opened and ended with
Jewish prayers instead of the
"Lord's Prayer" most of us had
repeated in our own school days,
we were convinced that a Jewish
school would go in Tampa.
Hillel opened September 1970,
with three general and 2 Judaic
studies, teachers, 29 students,
and a tuition fee of $500 per child.
Would you like to be the lucky winner of this 1980 Cadillac
Coupe de Villef Hillel School will announce the winner at its
10th anniversary celebration Saturday night. Call Jerilyn
Goldsmith or Roberta Zamore (pictured above with Robbie
Zambre) for details
Our concerns then were
recruiting enough students to
separate the combined third and
fourth grades, and convincing
people in the community that the
school had merit.
Ten years later, entrance is on
a first-come, first-serve basis for
qualified applicants. 135 children
in grades one through eight are
now spilling out of the
classrooms at Hillel.

Origin of Numbers
Women Read From Tori
At Congregation Servic<)
NUMEROLOGY
By RABBI THEODORE BROD
The origin of numbers, their
usage and meaning has always
been a fascinating study.
In Judaism, Biblical numbers
are primarily based on the
decimal system. The Israelites in
biblical times did not take a
special interest in mathematics:
what little they did use was based
on Egyptian and Babylonian
methods of counting.
In the Torah we find the four
basic methods of arithemetical
operations: addition, sub-
traction, multiplication and
division.
For Example: "And there
remained Two men in the camp,
the name of one was Eldad, and
the name of the Other Medad:"
(simple addition) (Numbers
11:26)
"Perhaps there will lack Five
of the Fifty rightous; wilt Thou
destroy ail of the city for the lack
of these Five? And He said, "I
will not destroy, if I find there
Forty and Five." (subtraction)
(Genesis 18:28)
"And thou shalt number unto
thee Seven Sabbaths of years,
Seven years Seven times; and the
space of the Seven sabbaths of
the years shall be unto thee Forty
and Nine years." (multiplication)
(Leviticus 25:8)
"And thou shalt Divide the
plunder captured, between those
that carried on the war, who went
out to the army, and between all
the people." (division) (Numbers
31:27)
All of the above examples are
of simple arithmetical operations
but not the method used
However we find that they did
have a fairly good knowledge of
the use of fractions.
In the Bible when using
fractions, complementary
fractions are the more frequent
(fractions in which the)
numerator is one leas than the
denominator.
For Example: "And it shall
come to pass in the harvest
times, that ye shall give the Fifth
part unto Pharaoh; and Four
parts shall be your own, for the
seed of the field, and for your
food, (4/5 fraction) (Genesis
47:24)
For Example: "And he
commanded them, this is the
thing you shall do: A Third part
of you shall be keeping watch at
the King's house; And a Third
part at the gates of Sur; and a
Third part behind the runners, so
that ye keep watch, aa a defense.
And Two Part's of you, they shall
keep watch in the house of the
Lord around the King." (2/3
fraction) (2 Kings 11:5-7)
Parts of the human body are
used to express Fractions or
Multiplications in the Bible.
For Example: "And he sent
portions unto them before him;
but Benjamin's p rot ion exceeded
the portions of all of them. Five
Hands (Fivefold) (Ya-Dote). And
they drank and were merry with
him." (Hand is being used as
Times, Multiplication) (Genesis
43:34h
"And the Lord opened the
mouth of the Ass and she said
unto Bilam, "What have I done
unto thee, that thou hast smitten
shall perish, but the Third Part
shall be left therein." (Mouth is
being used for Part or Fraction)
(Zechariah 13:8)
Originally the term Pee-Shi-
Na-Yim meant 2/3 but as the
Hebrew Language developed it
was used for "Twice as Much"
(Two Mouths)
For Example: "And it came to
pass, when they passed over, that
Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I
shall do for thee, before I shall be
taken away from thee. And
Elisha said, Let there be, I pray
thee a Double Portion (Pee-
Mouth) of thy spirit upon me."
(Pee-Shi-Na-Yim is being used as
Twice As Much-Two Mouths
Full).
The term Rosh (Head) is used
frequently in the Bible to mean
the Total.
For Example: "When thou
takest the Sum (Roah-Head) of
the Children of Israel of those
who are to be counted, then shall
they give every man a ransom for
his soul unto the Lord, when they
count them, so that there be no
plague amongst them when they
count them." (Rosh-Head is
being used as Sum or Total)
Exodus 30:12)
To be continued:
"Help us, 0 Lord to consecrate
our lives to thy teachings,
devotion and service to all
humanity. Endow us with faith in
thee to number our days in
wisdom." (Philo-Judaeus)
Shabbat Sholom!
Congregation Rodeph Sholom
Sisterhood conducted services
last weekend including the Torah
reading.
Now, this may not seem too
unusual a statement, until you
realize that this had never
happened before.
There have been rare (and
recent) occasions when women
have read from the Torah. but
this is something special.
This is a class of trained Torah
readers from the Sisterhood.
They have studied under Cantor
William Hauben and last week
was their debut.
"Never did I think such a thing
would happen in Tampa." said
Cantor Haub.ii speaking proudly
of his students. "It is like a
dream come true."
Marilyn Wittner. Dottie
Weinstein, Bella Taylor and
Sylvia Rkhman took their turn
reading the Torah regularly along
with the usual Torah readers in
the congregation.
A survey of Tampa
congregations showed that
women read from the Torah in
Congregation Schaarai Zedek,
where it has never been
prohibited, and at Congregation
Kol Ami, where it was approved
by a vote of the congregation
during the past year.
At the B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundation at the University of
South Florida women also
participate fully in the service,
including the Torah readings.
At Congregations Beth Israel
and Temple David, women are
not permitted to read from the
Torah.
At Chabad House-USF.
women are not permitted to read
from the Torah in a joint service.
Saks of handcrafted articles
from SACS (Senior Arts and
Crafts Shop) are paying the
utility bills of many people age 55
and over in Hills bo rough County
this winter.
In all, 115 older Floridians now
sell their wooden serving trays,
handmade sweaters, useful and
decorative items for the home
and much more, Monday through
Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at
SACS, at 214 North Blvd. in the
City of Tampa Recreation Center
(one block north of Kennedy).
Payments to seniors each
month range from under five
dollars to over one hundred
dollars, according to the staff of
the Senior Citizens Project of the
Jewish community Center which
co-sponsors the shop with the
Tampa Recreation Department.
"Business boomed during the
holidays, as we expected," says
Elena Kellogg, the volunteer who
manages the store with an all
volunteer staff.
"But it's doing well in
January, too, probably because
word-of-mouth about the quality
and prices of our products is our
best advertisement," she added
"The public is finding out you
can make your money go far at
SACS."
Shuffleboard For Seniors
Everyone 60 or older interested
in shuffleboard and other outdoor
games is invited to join the fun at
the Jewish Community Center,
Mondays from 1 to 3 p.m.
This program, called the
"Shuffle Board Social," began
Jan. 21 and will continue weekly.
"It's a good, mild form of
exercises and a great way to
enjoy our good winter weather
and to meet people," says
Marjorie Amoldi, recreation
specialist with the Senior
Citizens Project of the Jewish
Community Center.
According to
Rivlrin, "Women caul

News in Brief
Fr. Drinan Calls for
Boycott of Olympics
WASHINGTON U.S.
Congressman Robert F. Drinan
(D., Mass.) has forwarded to
President Carter petitions
compiled by the Union on
Councils for Soviet Jews con-
taining 66,000 signatures
which urge that the site of the
Olympics be moved from Moscow
to another location.
Drinan has for over a year
called for the removal of the
Olympics from Moscow because
of the "Soviet Union's disregard
lor the Final Act of the Helsinki
Accords, failure to assure news
agencies that they will be able to
report the games without cen-
sure, and failure to provide
adequate assurances that all
participants in the 1980 Olympics
will receive proper protec-
tion. ."
"The Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan has added a new
impetus to the growing number
of people in this country who
support removal of the games,"
Drinan wrote to Carter.
NEW YORK An Argentine
Jew who was imprisoned for
seven months and subjected to
torture and brainwashing has
told officials of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith that help for the thousands
of his countrymen who have been
jailed or have "disappeared"
remains urgent.
Alejandro Deutsch, 59, who
was released by Argentine
authorities in 1978 and emigrated
to Los Angeles with his family,
expressed his gratitude to ADL
for spearheading the campaign to
free him that finally involved
President Carter. He. his wife
and three daughters had all been
incarcerated. _________
SAN FRANCISCO New
evidence that the Soviets have
been lying about the fate of
Swedish diplomat Raoul
Wallenburg, savior of more than
100,000 Jews from the Nazi
holocaust, has been released for
the first time at a press con-
ference at the San Francisco
Press Club.
Jack Rees, acting chairman of
the local Free Wallenburg
Committee, and immediate past
state executive director of the
California Teachers Association,
reported that a Jewish refugee
from the Soviet Union informed
Thorsten Orn, Swedish
Ambassador to Israel, that the
partially-drunk son of a senior
IUB official had told him that he
had under his control in the
Russian prison system a Swedish
prisoner of more than 30 years.
The only Swede known to be in
the hands of the Soviets is
Wallenburg. The date was May 1,
1978, but the Jewish refugee was
not able to give the report until
last November. The identity of
the refugee cannot be released
because family members still in
Russia could be victimized by
vengeful officials who informed
the world in 1967, that
Wallenburg had died ten years
before.
PHILADELPHIA Jewish
leaders paid tribute here to th
memory of Martin Luther King,
Jr., amid pleas for restoration of
the "Black-Jewish alliance" at
the annual assembly of the
National Jewish Community
Relations Council in the Fair-
mont Hotel.
Four-hundred delegates from
106 local Jewish communities
and 11 national Jewish
organizations applauded Althea
Simmons, director of the
Washington office of /the
NAACP, whin she declared: "I
don't believe there is a Black -

Jewish 'split,' but if there is one I
will do everything in my power to
repair it. Jews and Blacks need
each other too much and the
country needs us too much to men(

Cohen, chancellor of the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, declared that the vote
last month by a majority of the
Seminary's Faculty Senate to
table a proposal to admit women
to the Seminary as rabbinical
candidates "must not be taken as
a defeat of the idea of women in
the rabbinate," and he urged a
long-range effort to "create a
climate of opinion" in the
Conservative movement to bring
about seminary approval of such
ordination.
Three-Way Alliance Links
Ayatollah, Assad, Arafat
Continued from Page 1
by Syrian Airways. They and
later arrivals will presumably be
nabled to enter Lebanon by
Syria's occupation forces, despite
the fact that the Lebanese
Government announced that
they had been debarred from
entering Lebanon.
For Arafat, the alliance with
the Iranians is very important.
His popularity with the Arab
masses is undiminished, but he
has run foul of several Arab
leaders in recent months, in
particular Col. Qaddafi of Libya.
The growing links with Iran
will reinforce his position as an
important figure in Arab ruling
circles. On the other hand, this
development could well cause
King Hussein of Jordan to re-
think his policy of ever closer co-
operation with the PLO.

was quoted as saying 16 years
ago. He had bought a house in
Israel. I suppose that some day
I might use it myself, but just
now I don't think so."
Almost every Jew in
Afghanistan had family in Israel.
Some had been here as tourists,
but had gone back to their
prosperous businesses and
comfortable homes.
The community had for the
most part been highly religious.
Almost all of them knew Hebrew,
and some business men kept their
commercial records in Hebrew.
The centuries went by. and the
now familiar story of Jewish
history has repeated itself once
again. Those who wished to do so
left when they could. And those
who were left "it is as if they

high on the blandishments of
their pleasures. These are a power

Justice Douglas understood all
of this. He kept a watchful eye on
the industrial giants and the
money-traders, as well as on the
growing cadre of their drones,
from whom he demanded the

interpreted it as an assault upon
the viability of the nation itself.
Worst of all, he saw partisans of
the assault within the Nixon
High Court itself those very
justices against whose legal and
linguistic illiteracy and contempt
for bask human freedoms ha
fought as hard as he fought
illiteracy of every sort on the
outside.
