China also is expected to have
a major part in the coordination
efforts, it was said. The cost of
the doctrine, however, may prove
prohibitive unless the oil-pro-
ducing countries contributed.
Pakistan has already notified the
U.S. it wants long-term aid with
its military cooperation. Egypt
has not been shy in seeking eco-
nomic and military aid.
With President Anwar Sadat
of Egypt having made it clear
that his government will not
grant bases to any foreign
country on Egyptian soil, but will
allow its "facilities" to be used,
the Carter Doctrine is expected to
center on U.S. pledges of support
and the visitations of American
warships and aircraft in various
countries at various times in
accordance with a general plan of
continued preparedness.
EGYPT'S pivotal role has long
been forecast in Washington in
defense of the oil fields and a
massive military aid program for
Egypt has been broached to Con-
gress. A series of developments
has enhanced the prospect of
Egypt's key role and Israel's
downgrading as a strategic asset.
Among them are the talks be-
tween Israel Prime Minister
Menachem Begin and Sadat in
Aswan several weeks ago and
Washington's coolness towards
Israel's offers of assistance to
American military forces in case
of need.

Tampa Community Awaits
Big Marvin Kalb Dinner
By IRV EDELSON
TAMPA On Feb. 9, CBS-
TV news comes into Tampa live.
It will be in the person of Marvin
Kalb presenting a picture of
current world affairs to the
Tampa Jewish community.
The veteran newscaster, an
expert on international affairs,
will be the principal speaker for
the Tampa Jewish Federation's
1980 campaign Inaugural Dinner
at 8 p.m. at the Host Inter-
national Hotel.
"The Saturday evening dinner,
to be preceded by a 7 p.m.
cocktail party, hopefully will be a
catalyst propelling the Tampa
Jewish Federation toward its $1
million goal," 1980 campaign
chairman Michael Levine said.
Persons attending the elegant
affair make a minimum commit-
ment of SI,000. A private
reception is another stimulus for
a successful campaign. Those
who attended and have the
opportunity to meet Kalb per-
sonally make a $5,000 or more
commitment to the Federation's
1980 campaign.
Close to 300 supporters of the
1980 TJF campaign are expected
to attend the dinner, culminating
the efforts of many volunteer
workers who have coordinated
and planned this major social and
philanthropic event on the
Tampa Jewish community
calendar.
Federation president Ben
Greenbaum praised the efforts of
the various chairmen planning,
developing and bringing the
Marvin Kalb
inaugural dinner campaign to its
present state of maturity.
Joining with Greenbaum was
TJF Campaign Chairman
Michael Levine, who cited the
efforts of Mrs. Herbert Fried-
man, in charge of dinner
arrangements; Sue Sutker, who
is assisting Mrs. Friedman with
the dinner; Hope Barnett,
chairman of invitations; Dick
Turkel, vice chairman of special
events who will chair the
evening's program; Sandy
Turkel, chairman of
arrangements for the $5,000-and-
over cocktail party, and Judy
Rosenkranz, chairman of the
Federation's Women's Division.

Italy Seen Linked To
Palestinian Terrorists
By LISA PALMIERI
ROME (JTA) Seven-year prison sentences pro-
nounced here last Friday on three former members of
Parliament and a Jordanian businessman for col-
laborating with Palestinian terrorists, officially closed a
case that had been shrouded in mystery since the arrests
were made last November.
But it opened to public scrutiny an unsavory record
of Italian government appeasement of Palestinian ter-
rorist groups since the early 1970's. Ironically, one of the
chief authors of that policy was the late Aldo Moro, leader

the campaign's inaugural dinner,
the Federation has obtained one
of the most informative men on
the contemporary news scene.
His expertise covers not only
Israel and the Middle East, but
Russia, China, Iran, and the
Washington front as well.
"If anyone can describe the
crowded conditions in Israel, the
decimated household budgets
caused by inflation and national
defense, the terrors of a market
place bombing on a Sabbath eve
or the wanting eyes of a poorly
dressed new immigrant, it is
Marvin Kalb, a man whose on-
the-scene reporting has carried
him to the sands and streets of
the Middle East," said campaign
chairman Levine.
In many trips abroad some
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.
Americans have viewed his
reports on Korea and Vietnam,
the Nixon-Krushchev "kitchen"
debate, the Kennedy-Krushchev
confrontation in Vienna, the
Cuban missile crisis, the Nixon-
Brezhnev summits, the shuttle
diplomacy of Henry Kissinger
and the evangelistic foreign
policy of Jimmy Carter.
Kalb is a member of the
Council on Foreign Relations, is a
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 fic-
tion, the best-selling thriller. In
The National Interest.
He has recently broadened his
concentration on Soviet-
American relations and the
Middle East to include the effects
of the energy crisis on U.S.
foreign policy.
Kalb joined CBS News in 1957
after working for the U.S.
Embassy in Moscow and
studying and teaching Russian
and Chinese history at Harvard
University.
His reports have appeared
regularly on the CBS Evening
News with Walter Cronkite and
on the CBS radio network. His
interpretation of foreign news has
won him more than a dozen
awards.

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Friday, p
<*nJ
By IRV EDELSON
A new sense of "belonging is
sweeping the sprawling Jewish
community in Tampa.
That mood is being manifested
in a series of parlor meetings
scheduled in key residential areas
where Jewish women many
for the very first time are
being asked to become involved
in Jewish activities.
Typical were the scenes
recently at the Carrollwood home
of Mrs. Paul (Gail) Pershes and
the Culbreath Isles residence of
Mrs. Byron (Nancy) Verkauf
where groups of women with an
average residency of three years
in Tampa comforted themselves
on chairs, sofas, a piano stool and
cross-legged on the carpeting for
a warm and enthusiastic get-
acquainted session.
The worker training meetings
Women Train For A Successful
Essential Division Fund Drive
were tor the Essential Division, a
part of the Women's Division in
the 1980 Tampa Jewish
Federation UJA campaign for
funds to support local, national
and overseas needs of the Jewish
I people.
. The spirit of involvement cut
I through the air at the
Carrollwood meeting. Marsha
Sherman, who came to Tampa
five years ago from Hollywood,
went through an enthusiastic
role-playing performance with
Cindy Sper, prodding the women
to pose questions about the needs
of the Jewish community in
Tampa.
Mrs. Sherman is vice chairman
of the general Federation
campaign, in charge of worker
training. Mrs. Sper is a co-
chairman of the Essential
Division.
Cindy's enthusiasm is the type
that's contagious, and she

It's a new year and once again I'm filled with resolves and
many calories. This is the year I've decided to lose ten pounds
Last year I lost one hundred pounds. It was the same te
pounds, lost and regained. This year I have sworn to keep it off,
How? No more chocolate! I am a chocolaholic. One nibble
pound makes so I'll go cold turkey! .
January 3
To make certain I wasn't tempted, I finished off the remainde
of a sixteen-layer chocolate fudge cake, and the stale chocolate!
Chanukah gelt. Now that they're gone, I can relax. The tenf
pounds will slip away like hot fudge syrup on cold vanilla ice|
cream topped with .
January 5
I was doing beautifully until I went to the movies today and
sal next to a little boy eating M & Ms. 1 smiled at him, hopin,
he'd offer me some. or at least, one. Instead, he got up a
told the usher I was bothering him.
January 8
I lost one pound. To celebrate I decided to treat myself to a
new blouse. The saleswoman blew it by saying that she had a
marvelous selection in chocolate brown. "It's the most delicious
color," she said. Obviously I couldn't eat the blouse so I did
the next best thing. Always the thoughtful mother, I ate a
family-size chocolate bar (with raisins and walnuts).
January 14
The world.seems set against me. I'll never lose weight. I went
to work today and met the new secretary. Marshall Brown. He's
from Hershey, Pennsylvania! All day long I kept fantasizing
marshmallows and Hershey bars. I went home and ate the entire
box of semi-sweet cooking chocolate.
January 21
I dreamed I tried to end it all. I walked into an ice cream store,
put my head down on the counter with my mouth directly under
the hot fudge spigot. 1 hated to wake up.
January 28
It's getting to me. I s^e chocolate mousse when I gaze at
storm clouds; trees in the distance remind me of giant Milky
Way bars; even manhole covers resemble chocolate-covered
mints. This mania isn't new. When I was a little girl, I refused to
fly up into Girl Scouts. I adored being a Brownie!
February 1
Only thirteen more days until Valentine's Day and all those
chocolate hearts; only sixty more days until Passover and
Barton's milk chocolate Sedar plates. And, this is Leap
Year which means there's one extra day to enjoy fudge,
semisweet chocolate for cooking, milk chocolate, cocoa what
about my diet? Oh, that! Well, I just came across a study by a
team of doctors who claim that chocolate is beneficial to your
health, eyesight, intelligence, etc. Believe me, it wasn't easy to
find them!

"1 think this is the first time

asked to participate. 1 think we
are now aware that there are so
many new families in Tampa that
we must be concerned with in-
volving them at whatever level
possible. 1 saw women who had
not participated before and I
think they were enthused and
ready to assume a share of the
responsibility of fund raising,"
the said.
Hostess Gail Pershes said
Tampa women in attendance "are
vary excited to see the new
growth of Jewish families, at the
north end of Tampa and seem
very willing to volunteer time
and support to see new programs
and activities come about."
Another Carrollwood meeting
guest. Susan Pross. in Tampa six
years, noted that some of the
women "didn't even know
anything about the Federation. I
think there is an awareness that
we will get back so much more
than we can give (by supporting
Jewish Federation programs). If
we can build a strong, viable
Jewish community, we will at-
tract other Jewish families, and
we will all benefit."

chairman Ann Zack said that
many church auxiliaries and
synagogue sisterhoods have been
invited and the public is welcome
to attend. Babysitting will be
available at the synagogue.
Meetings are planned for
morning and evening in order to
accommodate the schedules of
those invited. Judy Tawil will
host an 8 p.m. meeting Wed-
nesday, Feb. 6 at her home in
Beach Park. Lili Kaufman will
host a second coffee at 10 a.m.
the following day in her
Carrollwood residence.
Mrs. Epstein's 17 missions and
other visits to the centers and
vestiges of Jewish life in Israel,
Hungary, Rumania, Poland, ,
Italy, Austria and Greece are a
partial measure of her com-
mitment to the cause of aiding
and sustaining Jews everywhere.
In Atlanta, Mrs. Epstein is a
past Campaign chairman and
now an active member of the
Board of the Jewish Welfare
Federation. Recipient of the
Federation's 1973 Young
Leadership Award, she has also
given volunteer leadership to
Atlanta's Juvenile Diabetes
Foundation, Baby Clinic and
Symphony Guild.
In addition to Mrs. Epstein's
talk and discussion, a presen-
tation will be made detailing the
recent expansion of services by
the Tampa Jewish Federation,
necessitated by the un-
precedented growth of the Jewish
community in the last five years.
A vital part of the overall TJF-
UJA campaign, the Sustainers
Division incorporates the
commitments that fall within the
$365 and over category.
Co-chairmen of the Sustainers
are Ruth Wagner and Lili
Kaufman. Sue Greenberger is
serving as advisor.
Congregation Beth Israel will
present the fifth annual program
of Melave Malka, "Escorting the
Queen," a term used to describe
the meal and festivities at the end
of Shabbat.
This gesture of farewell to the
"Queen" (Shabbat) is designed
as the counterpart of the fes-
tivities, which greeted her
arrival.
One of the favorite hymns of
the Melave Malka is "Eliyaho
Hanavee," "Elijah the Prophet,"
who according to legend will
announce the salvation of Israel.
To relive this tradition, Con-
gregation Beth Israel will present
to the Tampa Jewish community
Martin Ehrlich in "Songs of My
People."
Ehrlich is a baritone whose
music and humor have been per-
formed throughout the United
States and enjoyed by numerous
audiences.
This program will be presented
at Congregation Beth Israel,
2111 Swann Ave., Saturday, Feb.
16, at 8 p.m. Dancing and
Martin Ehrlich
refreshments will follow the
program.
The Melave Malka assumed
the image of a voluntary ex-
tension of the Shabbat.
The Kabbalist and Hassidim
were so reluctant to relinquish
the honored Shabbat guest that
they used the Melave Malka as a
means of prolonging the Shabbat
day as long as possible. They
used the occasion to chant and
relate Hassidic tales.

"Adventures in Attitudes" will
begin in late February at the
Tampa Jewish Community
Center.
The ten-week course, which
will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. weekly,
will be offered by Dr. David and
Rudina Richter, certified co-
ordinators of the program.
The course will be offered on
either Thursday or Sunday
evenings, depending on the
preference of those enrolling.
The class will be divided into
small groups, which will allow
each participant to experience an
effective "whole person" ap-
proach to self-discovery, growth
and self-realization.
The" students are guided to
interact in small group projects
through use of printed work-
sheets, supplementary readings
and cassette tapes.
The major topics of the course
include: communications, at-
titude awareness, mind manage-
ment, understanding people,
confidence, personality, human
relations, group dynamics, belief,
time management and goal-
setting.
Dr. Richter said that the
course "is entirely positive in its
approach. It conditions thinking
for happy, successful living for
understanding and getting along
with others, and for putting self
in harmony with work, social
environment and future."
Real Estate Course to be Rerun
The University of Tampa has
scheduled a "rerun" of its recent
seminar, "How To Analyze
Income Real Estate."
When offered in September
and again in November, its
limited enrollment was oversub-
scribed. Besides investors and
realtors, the seminar also at-
tracted attorneys, accountants,
doctors, builders, and
prospective buyers of income
property.
"Naturally, we were gratified
at the reception and the en-
thusiastic reaction of the par-
ticipants," said Melvin Garten,
director of management
programs at the university.
"In Dr. Francis Mueller, who
developed the seminar and wrote
the student materials, we have a
rare blend of experienced
educator, highly published
author, and knowledgeable real
estate professional."
The "rerun" will meet on
campus Tuesday and Thursday
evenings, from 7 to 9:50 p.m.,
Feb. 5, 7, 12 and 14. Information
may be obtained from the Office
of Continuing Education.

Congregations May Merge
Amidst all the activity and excitement in,
Tampa these days, there is going on, quietly, a
series of meetings with very great consequences
for our Jewish community.
Congregation Beth Israel and Congregation
Rodeph Sholom are discussing the possibilities
of their merging. To date this has been approved
by the executive committees of both con-
gregations. Now committees are working to
establish just how this would all take place.
Needless to say, there are many, many
facets of such a move. One side note with all of
this is that it could result in Hillel School having
the Beth Israel building. This would mean that
remodeling could suffice instead of building and
it would be across the street from a city play-
ground (for physical education classes) and also
would be close to the Jewish Community Center.
While there is not a thing definite at this
time about this entire proposal, it does look as
though it will become a reality. It is a broad step
for Congregation Beth Israel. Their leadership
should be congratulated for being willing to
discuss such a merger, and in so doing
strengthening conservative Judaism in the
Interbay area.
In this day of bureaucratic red tape, any
body that sees its way clear to merge with
another and avoid duplication of services is to be
very much applauded.
Spotlighting Nazis
The recent ABC television documentary, Escape
from Justice: Nazi War Criminals in America, may
have served to inform a much wider public in the
United States about the scandalous situation in
which more than 200 Nazi war criminals have been
allowed to live safely in this country, some of them
for over 30 years.
Up to now, outside of the Jewish community,
only a few Americans have been concerned about this
issue. In fact, many have not been able to understand
the need to prosecute these war criminals. They have
argued, why bother a bunch of old men, many of
them now popular in their local communities, about
something that happened years ago?
The ABC documentary described the crimes
committed by these people. It reached an audience
that had already learned something about it by the
NBC-TV series Holocaust. But more important it
presented the shocking story of how many of these
people lied their way into the U.S. some of them with
the help of American government officials. It
demonstrated the scandalous inaction of the
Immigration and Naturalization Service for over 30
years and the even more upsetting fact that some of
these alleged war criminals were protected by
government officials.
A few people have labored over the years to get
government actions non-Americans such as Simon
Wiesenthal, the Vienna-based Nazi hunter, and
Rumanian Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen; and Americans
like Dr. Charles Kramer, the 82-yearold retired
dentist who has worked for over 20 years almost
singlehandedly on the case of Bishop Valerian Trifa.
Also, such writers as Charles Allen Jr. and Howard
lum, and officials such as Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman
P., N.Y.).
But the ABC documentary may result in wider
public support for these investigations and
prosecutions. Perhaps this is why Assistant Attor-
ney General Philip Heymann has announced that the
Justice Departmt it has set a deadline for disposing
of the 250 cases already pending for the end of this
[year.

By HERMAN HERST. JR.
For a quarter century, the
United Nations Postal
Administration has issued
postage stamps which call at-
tention to significant an-
niversaries, individuals who have
furthered the cause of peace, and
accomplishments of the UN itself
in making the world a better
place to live
Now. if the General Assembly
has its way. the UN will debark
from this principle and use its
stamps for propaganda purposes.
This in itself is not so bad; for
many years, nations have been
using their stamps for
propaganda, even this one. Rut
the United Nations Postal
Administration has been ordered
to produce a set of stamps to call
the world's attention to the
"inalienable right of the
Palestinian people to a homeland
in Palestine."
STAMP COLLECTORS are
up in arms over the proposed
issue. Not only is the UN PA
flooded with letters, but the office
of Secretary-General Waldheim
has received tens of thousands of
protests. Never before has the
UN itself permitted the use of its
postal paper to attack another
member of the IN

UN stamps to collectors. Linn's
Weekly Stamp News, the hob-
by's largest newspaper, with a
circulation of 100.000. has asked
its readers to bombard Kurt
VValdheim's office at the UN with
letters
The United Nations
Organization has never revealed
the amount of money it makes
from the sale of its stamps, which
have been popular the world over,
but there is no doubt that it runs
into the many millions of dollars.
It is pure profit to the UN, since
only the merest fraction of those
sold are ever used on mail.
The UN has a contract with the
United States Postal Service to
operate its postal system, but the
United States is reimbursed the
full value of all UN letters which
actually go through the mail. The
money from the sale of stamps
for philatelic use remains with
the UN.
AMBASSADOR Donald F.
McHenry. the U.S.A.
representative to the United
Nations, has pointed out that the
proposal for a PLO stamp is
opposed by this country, since we
consider its release "as an un-
necessary politicization of the
United Nations Postal
Administration."
There are hundreds of stamp

ra/w/ia 7*86/1 Sce/iei
By LESLIE AIDMAN
What is there for Tampa teens to do on the
Jewish scene? We wondered this too. We surveyed
the synagogue youth groups, and present to you the
results of our findings on grades 7 through 12. We
will have a report on youth activities which are not
congregation-affiliated in a future edition.
CONGREGATION KOL AMI
Young Judea is the overall name of all sections of the youth
organizations at Congregation Kol Ami.
However, also there is a club name "Neshicot" (meaning
kisses) which was selected by the members. The "Bogrim
Group" is for students in grades 9-12. Adviser of this group is
Karen Cheater and the officers in the organization include-
president Tammy Fox, programmer Michelle Levine, and Juiie
Malkin, secretary treasurer.
There are 12 members who pay an annual dues of $8 each.
This group is only two years old, but has already participated in
a number of fruitful and fun activities including: regional
conventions, "Nosh With Neshicot" (their ongoing fund raising
synagogue and individual catering and clean-up service),
programs with Hadassah Clubs, a four-day camping trip, and a
regional banquet.
Young Judea is a Zionist youth group and its philosophy is
Jewish awareness, your own Jewish identity, and learning how
to help others. It is a youth movement run for and by the youth.
Their meetings are held every Sunday night at the homes of
members. They are associated with Camp Tel Yehudah in New
York.
The "Tsofim Group" is for seventh and eighth grade
students. It has 10 members who each pay an annual dues of
$5.50. The advisors and the officers were yet undecided at the
time of this writing. This youth group meets every Sunday
afternoon for discussion and games.
Through these games and "rap" sessions, they are learning
the fundamentals of Jewish history. They also participate in
various group social activities that are frequently planned, such
as bowling and an annual parent-child activity.
CONGREGATION RODEPH SHOLOM
United Synagogue Youth, whose adviser is Diane Levine,
consists of 40 members, all of whom are in grades 9-12. They
each pay an annual dues of SI 1.
Officers include: Gary SmBowiU, president; Steve Gotler.
executive vice president; David Sugar, religious vice president;
Julie Sandier, membership vice president and fund raising: Jeff
Richman, program vice president; Craig Smilowitz, treasurer;
Jill Sandier, recording secretary; Stuart Levine, corresponding
secretary, and Eliae Richman, past president.
This group meets weekly and always has a program and
usually a meal at their meetings. Also, on the first Saturday of
each month, they join together for Shabbat services, lunch, and
discussion. Their activities include Megillah reading at Purim.
Sports Day, Tikuna Olam Fund Raising Day, opening banquet,
Disney World Day, and Interchapter weekend. Their
philosophies and goals include religious, social, and educational
involvement of the Jewish teenager (striving to achieve a well-
rounded balance of all three).
In addition to participating in a week-long annual leader-
ship training institute (this year being held at Camp Blue Star
for the southeastern region), USY is affiliated with Camp
Raman in Massachusetts.
The Kadima group at Congregation Rodeph Sholom is for
students in the seventh and eighth grades. There are 30
members each paying $10 annual dues. Ruby Sugar is adviser
for the group. Officers include Jon Wittner, president; Terri
CONGREGATION SCHAARAI ZEDEK
SCHZFTY (Schaarai Zedek Federation of Temple Youthl
consists of 35 members all in grades 9-12. Jan and Al Silverman
and Joan Altahuler are advisers of this group. Each member
pays an annual dues of $14.
Officers include: Sara Sundheim, president; Rhonda
Zamore, executive vice president; Michael Baron, religious vice
president; Beth Osiaaon, project vice president; Lisa Meyer
publicity vice president; Harry Tiahler, membership vice
president; Lynnette Solomon, treasurer; Diane Stiegel, corres-
ponding secretary; Gary Dolgin, recording secretary; Anne
Krawitz. Youth Council representative; Nancy Cohen and
Annette Jenkins, senior representatives to SCHZFTY board;
Caroline Falk and Atyssa Horn, junior representatives; and
Jack Roaenkranz and Joe Goldstein, sophomore representatives.
Activities include: Yom Kippur Creative Service, annual
Temple Sleep-In. a camp retreat, end of the year installation
banquet. Purim Carnival, and a progressive dinner. Also, newly
created this year, is an on-going blood drive in conjunction with
the Temple Brotherhood. SCHZFTY meets two times a month
for a dinner or brunch and meeting.
Their goal is to get the youth of the Temple and other in-
terested Jewish youth together to develop friendships and at the
same time participate in planned activities that are both fun and
learning experiences. They participate in SEFTY camp held
annually at Camp Coleman in Cleveland, Ga.
Congregation Schaarai Zedek's Junior Youth Group is for
students in seventh and eighthgradea in the Temple Religious
School (as it is a direct offshoot of the religious school). It is an
open organization with no yearly dues or officers. The adviser is
Barry Kaplin. There is always a planned monthly activity such
as bowling. It is basically just an avenue for getting the seventh
and eighth graders together socially. Congregation Schaarai
Zedek is associated with Camp Coleman, in Georgia, therefore,
many of the Junior Youth Group members spend part of their
summers at this camp.
CONGREGATION BETH ISRAEL
The Youth of Beth Israel has 15 members inclusive of ages
13-18 years old. The group's advisers are Larry Waaeerberger
and Rabbi Nathan Brynn. Each member pays approximately
$13 a year in dues. They are in the process of electing new of-
ficers at the time of this writing, therefore, for the time being,
the group is being led by its advisers.
Some of their activities include a Purim Carnival, car
washes, a "Lollipop Sale," a trip to River Country, serving at
some of the synagogue's Sisterhood and Men's Club's social
events, and attending conventions in Miami and in Clearwater.
The Youth of Beth Israel meet every other Wednesday at the
homes of various members. Their basic reason for existing is to
get Jewish kids together and at the same time strive to keep
Judaism alive and active among these young adults, through
social events.
Sugar, religious vice president; Susan Levine, program vice
president; Paula Troner, membership vice president; Missy
Perry, secretary; Glenn Taylor, treasurer; and Lee Mezrah. ath-
letic director.
They meet every Sunday and this includes services, break-
fast, cantors classes for future Bar Bat Mitzvaha, discussion
groups, and a meeting period.
Their activities include a Friday evening service andOneg
Shabbat at the Jewish Community Center held for the senior
citizens, a Walk -a Thon for Tikun-Olam. Shabbat retreat at
Lake Keystone. Megillah reeding for Purim, end of the year
banquet, and a Disney World weekend with the St. Petersburg
Kadima group. Kadima means, in Hebrew, forward! Kadima
strives to integrate religion, education, and social activities with
the Jewish child. They also participate in L.T.I, camp at Camp
Blue Star in North Carolina.
This Rabbi Is A Little Bit Different, Isn 't She]
By JUDITH ROSENKRANZ
We had the opportunity to
meet a visiting rabbi the other
day. And she was charming.
Rabbi Rosalind Ann Gold of
Congregation B'rith Kodesh,
Rochester, New York, was in
town as the speaker for the
annual Meyer Kotler Memorial
Lecture at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek.
The family of the late Meyer
Kotler funds this program to
bring each year to Tampa a
speaker of note in the Reform
movement.
BESIDES BEING one of only
16 women who have been or-
dained as rabbis. Rabbi Gold has
a direct Tampa connection, being
the first cousin of Golda
Brunhild. (Mrs. Gordon
Brunhild). As a spokeswoman for
a small number of dedicated
Jews, the female rabbinate,
Rabbi Gold manages very well.
"I don't think of myself as a
woman-rabbi,' but some
members of the congregation still
address me that way,' explained
Rabbi Gold. "And the personally
exciting parts of mv career to
date are those that would be true
of any new' rabbi. I mean
things such as the first time a
congregant asked for me to of-
ficiate at a life-cycle occasion
(funeral, wedding, brisl rather
than my officiating just because
the senior rabbi was out of
town."
Rabbi Gold explains very
articulately that the problems
faced by rabbis who happen to be
female are not all that much
different from those problems
faced by the ever increasing
numbers of women who choose
careers as doctors, lawyers or
business executives.
"CONGRSGATIONS are still
very reluctant to hire women
rabbis." said Rabbi Gold, "and
mobility after the first position
seems to be more difficult. But
the real test is just beginning. In
three to four years, if no woman
rabbi in the Reform movement
has her own pulpit, that will be a
problem."
Rabbi Gold cites as an example
Rabbi Sally Priesand the first
woman to be ordained.
Rabbi Priesand. after serving
as an assistant and associate
rabbi at the Stephen Wise Free
Synagogue. New York City, for
seven years, resigned her position
to seek a pulpit all her own. She
was unable to do so. Today she
serves a small New Jersey
congregation as a part time rabbi.
That was the best position
available to her.
One woman rabbi does have a
pulpit of her own. In the Recon-
struct lonist movement, which
has ordained six women, there is
a woman rabbi at a Reconstruc-
tionist congregation in Penn-
sylvania.
Laughing at the questions put
to her about being single and a
woman rabbi as opposed to the
problems whkh face a single man
rabbi. Rabbi Gold said, "A social
life is possible, you just have to
work at it. Unfortunately singles
generally do not join
congregations. My contacts tend
to be with congregation mem-
bers."
RABBI GOLD'S visit to
Tampa and her lecture, so very
well delivered, brought the whole
area of woman rabbis to focus in
Tampa.
As said by many people after
that evening. Ten years from
now. we will look back on this
ght as something out ofj
dark ages. Everytl
tonight will be so
we will laugh at our*W
taking it as something P
be discussed."

As detailed in a recent past column, Rabbi Rosalind Gold,
assistant rabbi, Congregation Brith Kodesh (Rochester, N.Y.)
was guest speaker at Congregation Schaarai Zedek on the oc-
casion of the Meyer Kotler Memorial Lecture. Her topic, "We've
Gone a Long Way Or Have We?" was delivered most ar-
ticulately with impact, wit and charm.
Rabbi Gold said that the two most frequent questions asked
her are "How Does It Feel to be a Female Rabbi?" and "What
Do You CaU a Female Rabbi's Husband?"
In answer to question number one, Rabbi Gold retorted,
"Well, I've been a female my entire life, so I feel pretty good
about that, and after studying for five long years to become a
rabbi, I can assure you that I feel pretty good about that"; and,
in answer to "What do you call a female rabbi's husband?"
Lucky, of course!''
Well, to continue, those in attendance were surprised to find
out that Rabbi Gold is a first cousin of a member of the con-
gregation, Golda Brundhild. Rabbi Gold will be traveling back
to Tampa in June to assist Rabbi Sundheim in officiating at the
marriage of Vikki Brundhild (daughter of Golda and Gordon) to
Bruce Silverman. Golda informed me that Vikki and Bruce's
wedding will be one of the first in many years between two fellow
congregants of Congregation Schaarai Zedek.

before graduating in 1977, has
made the Lady Gator basketball
team at the University of Florida
after trying out as a walk-on this
quarter.
"I heard the team had lost two
players so I got in touch with the

Karpay. "When the average
height of the other players is five
feet and ten inches, the half inch
is important," she said.
"I haven't played in a game

When Karpay does get on the

"""Hi
The Havdalah Ceremony Is A Jewish Traditi
10]
By RABBI NATHAN BRYNN
Congregation Beta Israel
Havdalah is a blessing at the
end of Shabbat or a festival
which separates the sacred from
the ordinary
The Babylonian Talmud says
that the Havdalah blessing was
originally included in the
Amidah. but as times passed .
they instituted that it should be
said over a cup of wine.
Three different possibilities
concerning the origin of the
Havdalah blessing are mentioned
in the Jerusalem Talmud.
First, originally the Havdalah
blessing might have been in-
cluded in the Amidah and then
transferred to the cup of wine
"for the benefit of the children
(ibid).
Secondly. the Havdalah
blessing may have first been
recited with the wine or. thirdly,
it may have been instituted in
both the home and the synagogue
simultaneously
In accordance with most of the
Tannaim (rabbis of Palestine
before 200 CE whose in-
terpretations are found in the
Mishnah and other sources
contemporary with it), the
practice is to recite the Havdalah
blessing over the cup of wine,
while only mention of it is made
in the Amidah.
Later, in the medieval period.
the custom began of also reciting
Havdalah over a cup of wine in
the synagogue in order to exempt
those who had no wine.
In the Havdalah ceremony
today, the blessing over the wine
itself stems from the duty to
recite Havdalah over a cup of
wine The wine is permitted to
flow to the brim of the cup to
symbolize the overflowing
blessing hoped for in the coming
week.
According to Maimonides. a
blessing over spices is said in
order to cheer the soul, which is
saddened at the departure of the
Shabbat. Just as the spices
aroma lingers in the air. it is
hoped that the memories of
Shabbat will infuse future hours.
While reciting the blessing over
the spices, it is customary for a
box of aromatic spices to be

because spices, which came
from the Orient, were so valuable
that they had to be stored in the
castle or city hall"
i Encyclopaedia Judaica) Human
and animal figures were also
placed around the towers of spice
boxes.
To emphasize the conclusion of
Shabbat. when work is again
permitted, the blessing over the
light is recited. A twisted or
braided candle of several wicks is
used because more light is given
off than with an ordinary candle,
thus stressing the distinction
between light and darkness iThe
Jewish Catalog)
The final blessing of the
Havdalah ceremony is the
Havdalah blessing itself, which
distinguishes between Shabbat
and the other days of the week.
When a festival immediately
follows Shabbat. the spices and
Havdalah candle and their
blessings are omitted because
the soul is rejoicing for the
coming festival. In this case, the
wording of the Havdalah blasting
over the cup of wine is 'Who

and holy. a<- opposed to the

is recited at home, an in-
troductory paragraph consisting
of verses from Isaiah. Psalms and
the Scroll of Esther ithe only
time this work is quoted in the
prayerbooki is said:
Behold. God is my deliverance;
I will trust, and will not be
afraid: truly the Lord is my

delivered me indeed Joyfully
shall you draw upon the foun-
tains of deliverance It is for the

After this prayer is said, the
blessing over the full cup of wine
is recited, but the wine is not
drunk
Praised are You. O Lord our
God. Ruler of the universe, who
creates the fruit of the vine Then
the blessing over the spices
said, and the spice box is passed
around Praised are You. O
Lord our God. Ruler of the
universe, who creates fragrant
spices.
The blessing over the light of
the fire is then said: Praised are
You. O Lord our God. Ruler of
the universe, who creates the
lights of fire
The Havdalah blessing, the
fourth and final blessing said at
the ceremony at the end of
Shabbat. is then recited:
Praised are You. O Lord our
God. Ruler of the universe, who
makes a distinction between the
holy and the normal, between the
"ght and darkness, between
Israel and the nations, between
the seventh day and the six days
of creation. Praised are You. O
Lord, who divides between the
holy and the normal."
Then the person reciting the
blessings drinks the entire cup of
wine or may pass it around for
everyone to taste. A few drops of
wine should be poured onto a dish
and the candle extinguished in
the wine.
Dipping the index fingers into
the remaining wine and
spreading it over the eyelids is a
custom followed by some which
alludes to Psalm 19:19 where
God's commands are
"enlightening the eyes'" (Bir-
nbaum. Philip. A Book of Jewish
Concepts). Sometimes the
remaining wine is brushed over
the participants garment
pockets, symbolizing the wish for
prosperity.
After the Havdalah ceremony.
it is proper to wish everyone a
shavuah tov (good week).
Shabbat is viewed as the
foretaste of the coming of the

we send him our blessings and we
demand his release. We join free
people throughout the world in
this demand," Begin said.
The Prime Minister's remarks
reflected outrage over the Soviet
government's treatment of
Sakharov and mounting concern
in Israel that this may herald i
new crackdown on dissidents in
general and on Jews seeking to
emigrate.
Rafael Kotlowitz, head of the
Jewish Agency's immigration
and absorption department,
appeared uncertain as to whether
or not the recent decrease in the
number of visas issued to Soviet
Jews is a manifestation of the
same wave of oppression that
engulfed Sakharov. Kotlowitz
says the drop in visas may be due
to the fact that most Jews
leaving the Soviet Union are
going to the U.S.
Syria threatened to invade
Jordan in 1970 during the up-
rising against Hussein by
Palestinian Arabs.
NOW, HOWEVER, Israel, for
the present period, appears to be
largely left out of the U.S. cal-
culations in the joint overall
strategy although it will continue
to be a bastion of strength in its
own defense. Egypt is using the
Palestinian issue to ward off any
overtures for Israel to be part of
the overall preparation.
Egyptian Defense Minister
Kamal Hassan Ali indicated this
when he rejected Israel's offer of
strategic cooperation. Ali said,
"As long as we do not solve the
Palestinian issue there will be no
strategic cooperation between
our two countries." In addition,
according to information here,
Egypt rejected Israel's offer of
exchange of information between
Israeli and Egyptian intelligence
services.
Egypt is being pictured here as
becoming the region's most
reliable ally of the U.S. and the
past association of Egyptian
politicians, and military with the
Soviet Union is not being
recalled. Instead, reports em-
phasize joint American-Egyptian
aerial exercises with U.S. aircraft
using the air bases near Cairo and
Kina airbase near Luxor.
'There is strategic cooperation
in the Middle East, but
Menachem Begin and Israel's
intelligence are left out of it,"
according to one report. This,
however, may be at least some-
what off the mark. Israeli intel-
ligence and military craftsman-
ship continue qualitatively to be
the Middle East's best and
analysts consider Washington is
unlikely to neglect them com-
pletely.
What is being suggested is
that Washington is hoping that
Moslem reaction against Moscow
will be helped by the U.S. down-
playing Israel and thereby
shatter the anti-American mood
of the countries opposing the
Camp David accords. In this
vein, the Carter Administration
is being advised by analysts to
move "with sensitivity and dis-
crimination" and thus possibly
induce even Soviet friends like
Syria, Libya and the PLO to con-
demn the Soviets for entering
Afghanistan.
EGYPTIANS also are
reported training and supplying
Afghan rebels fighting Soviet
forces and Egyptian commando
officers in Oman and North
Yemen to train local units to
oppose revolutionaries. In ad-
dition, Cairo is said to be sup-
plying weapons to Morocco that
is opposing the Polisario rebels
backed by pro-Soviet Algeria.

Methodical mysticism of numbers loses itself in the fog

into this subject the name of Pythagoras (580 B.C.E.), a
Greek philosopher and mathematician.
He is best known for the Pythagorean Theory that
states that the square of the hypotenuse of a right-angled
triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two
sides. A right triangle is one in which one angle equals 90
degrees. The Hypotenuse is the side opposite the right
angle. c2 equals a2 + b2
It seems the ancient Egypt ions wanted to lay out square
corners (90 degrees) for their fields.
Workmen took a loop of rope knotted into 12 equal
spaces; then took three stakes and stretched the rope to
form a triangle around the stakes. They placed the stakes
so the triangle had sides of 3,4, and 5 units.
The side of 5 units was the hypotenuse and the angle
opposite it equaled 90 degrees.
Around 400 B.C.E. a group of Greek philosophers
known as the Pythagoreans generalized the above theory
and applied it to all right triangles (Pythagorean
Theorem). In 300 B.C.E. the Greek mathematician Euclid
provided the proof of the theory.
Pythagoras taught that numbers were the essence of all
things. He mystically associated numbers with virtues,
colors and many other similar ideas.
The rabbis of the Talmud use similar theories in
numbers; teaching that numbers were the elements out of
which God constructed the Universe.
All the various forms and phenomena of the world have
numbers for their bases and their essence. Thus on the
foundation of numbers an entire cosmogony was con-
structed.
For example, the power of 7. This number was not only
prominent amongst Hebrew writings but also amongst
F.gyption, Assyrian and Persian scrolls because of the
then prevalent worship of the seven heavenly bodies; the
sun, moon and the five planets.
The number 7 has an unrelated character in the series of
1 to 10, thus making it unique or outstanding.
In the Bible this number 7 is connected with many
events and things. The clean beasts allowed into the Ark
by Noah.
"Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee 7 pairs of
each, the male and his female -." (Genesis 7:2)
Leprosy: (use of 7) "And it shall be on the 7th day. that
he shall shave off all his hair, his head and his beard, and
liis eyebrows, even all his hair shall wash his clothes, he
shall wash his body in water, then he shall be clean."
(Leviticus 14:9)
Bilam and King Balak (use of 7) "And Bilam said to
King Balak. build me 7 altars and prepare for me 7 but-
tocks and 7 rams." (Numbers 23:1)
Manv other examples of the use of 7 can be found in the
Bible, too numerous to continue to mention in this paper.
However let us cite one example from the Talmud where
the number 7 is used for its mystic, healing powers.
"R. Huna said, as a remedv for a fever that reoccurs
every other day. one should procure 7 prickles from 7
palm trees. 7 chips of wood from 7 beams, 7 pegs of wood
from 7 bridges, 7 small heaps of ashes from 7 ovens, 7
small mounds of earth from under 7 door-stops, 7 pieces of
tar (pitch) from 7 ships, 7 handfuls of cumin (aromatic
seeds from an annual plant that grows wild in Syria, and 7
hairs from the chin of an old dog. tie all these together
around the neck of the patient with a white twisted
string. "(Shabbota 67 a)
Thus we see the Talmud ascribing magical or healing
properties to the number 7. regarded as a most sacred
number. The commentaries on the Talmud, state that the
power of 7 is in the fact that Numbers 3 and 4 that total 7.
were in themselves held sacred
The rabbis, though opposed to superstitious practices in
general, were nevertheless children of their time and
recognized their influence.
(to be continued)
May the L'd grant that this paper guide the reader to a
deeper appreciation of the knowledge embodied in the
majestic treasury of our literature.
"May abundant peace be to those who love Thy Law
and may they not stumble therein." (Psalm 99)

in their eyes; it is we who are the
untouchables, not the Russians,
with whom our freedom-loving
democratic friends in Europe and
the Orient can come to terms at
whatever cost.
WHAT IS intolerable is the
cost of freedom, not the cost of
doing business with the mob.
That is what it comes down to.
and our "allies" have made it
eminently clear just which bill
they prefer to pay.
So that the President's
wagging mouth has really hurt
no one so far except us. And
except, of course, the American
military and security establish-
ments, which once again are
riding high in a big way. like
Batman and Robin, against the
forces of evil. Rut Gotham Town
would much rather suffer the
forces of evil than the noisy, nosy
liberators, and we must make no
mistake about that.
What I object to most in this is
the definition of our "vital
American interest." If it is not
vital American but rather vital
European Japanese, and they
have a better way of defending it
than our own war dance, then
what is the President really
talking about?
The answer is important
because, without the answer, we
have already called for military
registration to defend not a
national interest but a
supra national interest. The area
upon which the President has
thrown down the American
gauntlet is vital to Exxon and
Shell and the other global powers
with absolutely no patriotic com-
mitment to a specific country,
only to profit.
WHlf SHOULD American
men and possibly women be
called upon to shed their blood in
the cause of Exxon? If it is indeed
a "vital American interest" that
is at stake, then let it become
American: let it cease being
Exxonian. Short of that, threats
of conflict in the cause of private
corporate profit are a crude
throwback to the Punic wars, and
as any student of history knows,
commercial wars are the least
satisfactory and the least suc-
cessful.
In the end. the potential
draftee will say, Why should 1
fight for something that the
Europeans, with the most to
benefit, don't want to fight for
themselves?
And he will say. Let the energy
struggle become an American
struggle with the pain now and
the reward later for Americans to
suffer and to enjoy. Let it not be
a struggle to guarantee Exxon's
profits.
Otherwise, he will say. Let
Exxon engage the Russians at
the Straits of Hormuz. I>et the
old no longer pay their dividends
with the blood of the young.

technician at the University of
Rome Hospital, had been active
in the past organizing the trans-
portation of medical items to
Palestinian refugee camp. His
name was found in Abu Salgh's
address book.
The connection of the Italian
extremists with Habash's group
was revealed only after the
PFLP's letter was made public
by their defense attorneys. This
led to an expose in the Italian
press of what had been an open
secret in some circles the
Italian government's col-
laboration with Palestinian ter-
rorists since 1972 when a
series of terrorist acts were oc-
curring on Italian soil.
Gen. Vito Miceli, former chief
of the Italian Secret Service
(SID), revealed details of this
collaboration in an interview
published in the weekly
'L'Espresso. "At that time
(1972), there was the danger of
Palestinian terrorism, an excep-
tional situation that had to be
met with exceptional means,"
Miceli said.
"On the basis of precise orders
by the government, of which all
ministers were informed, we
contacted the various Palestinian
groups and made arrangements
whose purpose was to avoid
(terrorist) attempts that would
involve Italy."
THE PERSON who rep-
presented the Italian authorities
in these negotiations over the last
eight years is Col. Stefano
Giovannoni, a diplomat stationed
in Beirut. Giovannoni was men-
tioned by Moro, in letters written
during his captivity by the Red
Brigade terrorists, as the ideal
man to bargain for his release.
Moro was the head of the
Italian Foreign Ministry when
"deals" with the Palestinian ter-
rorists were made, and it was
under his direction that all Pales-
tinians detained in Italian jails
were eventually freed. These
included two terrorists who had
attempted to down the El Al
plane. They were secretly flown
out of the country on an Italian
military aircraft which exploded
mysteriously on its way back to
Italy, killing its crew.
Similarly, five other terrorists
arrested in possession of Strela
missiles in 1973 were released on
payment of 60 million lire bail
and flown to Algiers accom-
panied by an official of the SID,
presumably Antonio La Bruna.
IN HIS letters from captivity,
Moro pleaded with his own
Christian Democrat Party to
follow the example of past
governments that compromised
with Palestinian terrorists in
order to save his own life. But the
government and the Christian
Democrats took a hard line in the
Moro case which proved fatal to
him.
L'Espresso observed that the
latest "missiles case" revealed
three facts of prime importance:
"This is the first time a Pales-
tinian organization (PFLP) has
officially admitted importing
arms into Europe and having ties
with the Italian government to
hide the fact that a non-aggres-
sion pact (probably verbal) exists
between the Italian Secret
Services and Palestinian groups,
involving hands-off planes and
Italian air space in return for
benevolent assistance by Italy to
the Palestinian cause. And this is
the first time the Italian govern-
ment has admitted some of these
facts."
Observers here say the case
must be viewed in terms of the
closer official relationship of the
Italian government with the
Palestine Liberation
Organization which "sup-
posedly" does not include the
PFLP, and the shifting oil power
interests in the confused Middle
East situation.
