"Update: Israel and Lebanon", a community wide
meeting of the Tampa Jewish community has been
scheduled for Wednesday evening, September 8, 7:30 p.m.
at the Jewish Community Center Auditorium, 2808
According to Mike Levine, President of the Tampa
Jewish Federation, sponsors of the "gathering", "this
meeting will enable Tampa's Jewish community to come
together to demonstrate solidarity with Israel and will
provide the Tampa community with first-hand reports of
the situation in Lebanon as witnessed by our three
congregational rabbis who will have just returned from
Lebanon and Israel."
Returning from Israel and presenting their impressions
will be Rabbi Frank Sundheim, Congregation Schaarai
Zedek; Rabbi Kenneth Berger, Rodeph Sholom Congrega-
tion and Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal, Congregation Kol
Ami. A United Jewish Appeal speaker will also participate
in the program.
The entire community is urged to attend this
"gathering" to demonstrate support for Israel, to hear the
latest update on Lebanon, and to find out what action
each person can take to make their opinion heard. An
opportunity will be provided to participate in the Israel
Special Fund to aid the humanitarian needs of the Israeli

Begin Optimistic War Over
Premier Menachem Begin has
expressed optimism that with the
departure of the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization from Beirut
proceeding as scheduled, the
military stage of the war in
Lebanon has concluded. But
Begin said that this should not be
taken as an indication to others
that Israel has foreclosed the
possibility of other military
At a meeting of the Knesset
Security and Foreign Affairs
Committee, Begin said Israel has
no intention to attack Syria,
whose occupation force continues
to occupy parts of eastern
Lebanon, or Jordan, which
warmyly welcomed several
hundred of the first PLO
evacuees from the Lebanese
capital. The Israeli Premier re-
mained firm on his position that
if attacked, Israel would not
hesitate to return fire.
The committee meeting was
also the scene of sharp exchanges
between Begin and opposition
Labor Party leader Shimon
Peres, who charged that the gov-
ernment had no need to go
beyond the originally stated at-
tentions of the "Peace for
Galilee" operation were to push
the PLO out of rocket and ar-
tillery range of Israel's northern
border settelments, an estimated
distance of 25 miles.
bombing of west Beirut, saving
the action, joined with the block-
ades imposed by the Israel De-
fense Force around the Lebanese
capital cutting off water supplies,
has caused damage to Israel's in-
ternational image. He said that
at no time during the Labor
Alignment governments of the
past had civilian targets been
Begin used the opportunity at
the committee meeting to settle
scores that have developed be-
tween the two factions concern-
ing the war effort. "One cannot
speak today of the Alignment,"
he charged. "Every member of
your faction is expressing a dif-
ferent view."
Begin explained that Israel
had no intention originally to
move into west Beirut but said
that if the government had de-
clared so publicly, the PLO would
have not been pressured to
evacuate the capital. He accused
the Labor Alignment of failing to
view the actions in Lebanon in
proper perspective and not being
able to admit to the govern-
ment's achievements in ridding
Lebanon of the PLO.
BEGIN SAID he could cite
"tens of examples" of where the
Labor governments "did just the
same" as his Likud leadership
acted in the Lebanon action. But
Peres replied: "Why even the
Deputy Premier demanded the
dismissal of the Defense Minis-
ter," Ariel Sharon.
According to Begin, no minis-
ter had made such a demand in
the Cabinet. But Peres retorted,
Although the name has not been
publicized, I believe the jour-
nalists who wrote that these
comments were made by a senior
minister." There have been in
recent weeks reports that the
Cabinet was sharply divided on
the 10-hour bombing Sharon
had ordered on Aug. 12 which
continued until President Reagan
called from Washington demand-
ing that the bombing cease.

Med-Dead Sea Canal Project Largest of its Kind in World
Beginning as an idea expressed*
by Theodore Heral in his novel.
"Altneuland" written in 1902,
the Mediterranean-Dead Sea
Canal is now becoming a reality.
Herzl had a vision of an ambi-
tious engineering venture that
would be an important source of
energy for the yet unborn State
of Israel.
This Interseas Water Conduit
or Canal will take a route begin-
ning approximately 6 miles north
of the Sinai border on the Med-
iterranean coast and travel east-
ward through the Negev, south of
Berrsheva, to a plateau overlook-
ing the Dead Sea.
Great economic, energy ana
natural resource benefits will re-
sult from the completion of this
project. For example, this project
will supply hydro-electric power
sufficient to meet about 15 per-
cent of Israel's total energy needs
by the end of this decade.
To fund this enormous en-
gineering undertaking, the gov-
ernment of Israel has asked the
Israel Bond organization to meet
the first $100 million of the pro-
ject. To accomplish this, a meet-
ing of Israel Bond leaders from
all over the United States and
Canada convened last year in
Jerusalem. Speaking to the con
Mary Walker Towers, spon-
sored by Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion Housing, Inc., has begun ac-
cepting residents. This is the sec-
ond senior citizen housing project
to be built in Tampa under
Jewish sponsorship. The Jewish
Towers opened seven years ago,
Feb. 1,1975.
Juliet Rodriguez, Administra-
tor of the Jewish Towers, will
serve in the same capacity for the
Mary Walker Towers with Diane
Nales as the Administrative As-
The Mary Walker Towers is
located at 4912 E. Linebaugh,
Tampa, 33612, on the edge of
Temple Terrace. All residence in-
quiries should be directed to
Diane Nales at the Mary Walker
Towers, 985-8809.

twn Kol Ami, recently left Tampa for the University of Miami
where he is enrolled in a special intensive two-year medical pro-'
gram. We will miss you but wish you success in your endeavor

the family will decide to return to Tampa when Steve completes
his residency program.
Ralph and Margot Marcadis have returned to Tampa to live.
This young couple has been married just over a year. Having
just completed law school, Ralph sat for the Florida bar exam
this summer. In addition, Aug. 1 he joined the tax department

Dr. Goldmann's Passing
In his last years as an elder statesman of world
Jewry, Dr. Nahum Goldmann made a wide variety of
controversial remarks about Israel that won him the
praise of some Jews and the animosity of others.
1 But Dr. Goldmann, who died on Sunday at age 87,
was no stranger to controversy throughout his life. It
was Dr. Goldmann, who after devoting the lion's
share of his younger years to Jewish survival in the
Hitlerian holocaust, and who played a leading role in
the founding of the State of Israel, later spent his en-
ergies debating with David Ben Gurion over who was
a Zionist.
Ben Gurion believed that no Jew who refused to
make aliyah was a Zionist. Dr. Goldmann, quite
simply, cried "Bunk!'
In his declining years, even but a few months ago,
Dr. Goldmann expressed his growing concern that
Israel had taken a "wrong turn" away from the loft-
ier principles of its reemergence out of the ashes of
the Nazi era.
Whatever position Jews may take about Dr. Gold-
mann now that he is gone, there will be unanimity on
at least one issue. He was as surely an architect of
the modern Jewish State as any other Zionist, a man
who helped Jews, both Israeli and non-Israeli, sur-
vive their holocaustic experience and rise once again
to positions of world prominence and prestige.
Arafat'8 'Victory'
Yasir Arafat's departure from Beirut suggests
that his posturing before the world press about his
"magnificent victory" can not be long sustained as a
series of incidents worth reportingnot even by that
press, whose corrupt reporting of the war in Lebanon
now leaves it in the lurch.
Arafat has been defeated, at least in Lebanon, and
he knows it. If he did not know it when he agreed to
leave, surely he knew it on his way to Tunis via
i reece, when he had time to mull over his last re-
qu< .sod by the Israelis, that he be allowed to
leave Beirut with all the diplomatic honors accorded
a statesman.
If nothing else, old Yasir sure tried to pull off yet
another piece of stagecraft, and he failed. Diplomatic
honors? For what? The PLO chief's main claim to
fame these days is that he held out longer against the
Israelis than any other Arab nation, or combination
of nations, or forces in the past.
Of course he did. He was holed up smack in the
middle of civilian centers the Israelis were loathe to
destroy. Such cowardly tactics deserve no diplomatic
honors. Not even the corrupt world media, with their
bastions of fiction-writers and photographers pur-
porting to be reporters, will be able to make much of
this Yasir Arafat "victory."
Not, at least, for the moment.
Tourism Minister Predicts
Post-War Rise in Travel to Israel
ham Sharir, Israel's Minister of
Tourism, predicted that once the
Lebanese crisis is peacefully re-
solved which, he said, is a "mat-
ter of a few weeks," American
tourists will be able to go on
pakcage tours to Egypt. Israel
and Lebanon."
Addressing some 120 travel
agents from the New York area at
a reception at the Regency Hotel
here, the Israeli Minister said
that in fact in recent weeks the
Lebanese-Israeli border has been
open for tourists from both coun-
He said that American tourists
can come now and "visit the
pyramids in Egypt, then come to
visit the Holy Places in Israel,
and from there continue to enjoy
the casinos of Lebanon."
Sharir said, however, that the
war in Lebanon, which started
June 6, has reduced the number
of American tourists to Israel by
about five percent this summer
compared with the same period
last year. He said that many
would-be tourists were scared be-
cause of the war in Lebanon and
wrongly thought that Israel was
an unsafe place to visit

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I had planned to go north for
the Rosh Hashanah-Yom
Kippur holidays. My wife and
son already had their airplane
tickets. I .was going to purchase
my ticket this week, but tonight,
what was to have been used for
my plane fare, was diverted to
another purpose to. help in
Tampa's drive to raise an emer-
gency $400,000 for Israel. I am
not making a pledge. I am giving
the cash.
In all of the rhetoric that has
been written and said about the
Israeli incursjon into Lebanon to
choke the final breath of PLO
terrorism, two statements lead
me to make this decision. One
was made by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin, "We bend our
knees to no one but God alone."
The other was made by one of
Tampa's own community leaders,
"I can not, nor would I want to,
send my son to fight in Israel,
but I can send my money."
I am told that Jewish commu-
nities across the country have not
responded financially as they.had
responded in 1967 and again in
1973. The Jews in Tampa, and in-
deed across the country, are not
breaking open their kosher piggy
banks and flooding the UJA cof-
fers to meet-jthe staggering finan-
cial needs this war has created.
Until tonight I have not felt the
emotional need to do without in
order to help.
I don't have to see Israeli sol-
diers returning from the Leba-
nese front minus an arm or a leg
to know this is a real war. I don't
have to taste the salt of a
mother's tears who just lost her
son. I don't have to smell the
stench of gunpowder nor listen to
the eerie whine of a rocket that
may or may not land in my
bunker. Blood is flowing, and it is
the same blood that courses
through your and my veins it
is Jewish blood.
The media may portray the
war in a different light that tends
to make us somewhat guilty or
apologetic. But you and I are
thinking people. We know that
Israel doesn't want this or any
wax. We know that one Israeli
soldier's death is too many. We
know that as resilient as we think
the Israeli economy may be, the
financial and economic loss re-
sulting from this war will wreak
havoc on an already burdened
For me the sacrifice was one
less trip north for the holidays.
For you it might mean one less
weekend at the beach, one less
suit or new dress for the year, or
it may mean no real financial
sacrifice at all.
Israel has already made its
sacrifice. Unlike Abraham who
was willing to sacrifice hi* son,
Israel has sacrificed manv of its
sons. The least we, as American
Jews living in Tampa can do, is
sacrifice our dollars. We can not
rally our army in a call to arms,
but we can rally our community.
Don't wait to be asked. Pick up
the only weapon available to the
American Jew your pen. Make
your check payable to the United
Jewish Appeal today and send it
to the Tampa Jewish Federation.

but God alone."

Kosher standards are tougher than the U.S. Government's.
But they're not tough enough for us.
Because while kosher law forbids many non-meat fillers
and additives in meat, it does allow by-products and artificial coloring.
We don't.
We not only make sure our hot dogs, bologna, salami,
and knockwurst are 100% pure beef, but we also make sure they're
100% natural. Qualities everyone has a taste for. .

On Aug. a. Stephen SegaU,
president of Tampa Jewish Social
Service received a letter from Jo-
seph Brown, vice president of al-
locations and admissions stating
that Tampa Jewish Social Serv-
ice had been approved to become
a full member agency of the
United Way for 1983. Although a
special grantee in 1982, TJSS had
been applying for full member-
ship since 1978.
In his response to Mr. Brown,
Segall stated. "We are proud and
pleased to be a United Way
agency and to uphold the stand-
ars for service delivery for which
the United Way stands."
The allocations committee has
tentatively recommended a
$7,000 allocation to TJSS for
1983 to support the vocational
services program. This is a 40
percent increase over the 1982
grant. The allocation is depen-
dent on the United Way
achieving its $3.4 million goal.

AJCommittee on 'The Jewish Sound'
William A. Gralnick, South-
Last Regional Director of the
[American Jewish Committee will
appear on The Jewish Sound
[Sunday, Sept. 5. The pre-record-
|ed interview is a first in a series
on the work of the American
Jewish Committee in the South-
Ieastern United States. The first
[program will cover the history of
|aJC and how it differs from its
[sister organizations, the Anti-
1 Defamation League of B'nai
B nth and the American Jewish
I Congress. The Jewish Sound
which is heard on WMMF in
Tampa and covers the Bay Area
hosted by Oded Salpeter. In
[the interview Gralnick also
Idiscusses AJC's outreach effort
[in the Bay Area and the fact that
la Bay Area unit is expected to be
Iformed within the year.
In discussing Committee's his
[lory, Gralnick points out how it
has managed to change and stay
the same. While at one time 8
I group of some thirty men, AJC
[has grown into a direct member-
ship organization. It has 50,000
members, in more than 80 chap-
ters, staffed by 32 offices. It also
maintains three offices overseas.
Gralnick points out however,
that an insistence on excellent re-
search, a low profile, and high
level behind the scenes contacts
all still are the hallmarks of
AJC's modern day operation.
Future programs are planned to
cover the issues of extremism,
Arab Anti-Jewish and Anti-Is-
rael Influence in America and
problems confronting the Jewish
family. Each will place heavy em-
phasis on the manifestations of
those issues in the South, partic-
ularly in the State of Florida and
the Bay Area.
William A. Gralnick has been
AJC's man in the Southeast for
nine years. Recently moved to
Florida when the Southeast Re-
gional Office was moved from
Atlanta to Miami, Gralnick has
spent eight years working with
and studying the Jewish Com-
munities of the Southeast. Dur-
ing that time he has formed three
off-shoots of The National Inter-
religious Task Force on Soviet
Jewry. Called "one of this
nations foremost Klan watchers'"
by Nashville Tennessean reporter
Jerry Thompson, Gralnick helped
prepare Thompson for his infil-
tration of the Klan. Gralnick
also helped the Tennessean staff
research an investigative series
prior to Thompson. Both series
won honorable mention in the
1981 Pulitzer Prize voting.
Founded in 1906, the American
Jewish Comittee is this country's
pioneer human relations organ-
ization. It combats bigotry, pro-
tects the civil and religious rights
of Jews at home and abroad, and
seeks improved human relations
for all people everywhere.

These Are Just Three Reasons To Re-Elect
To Hillsborough County Commission Sept. 7
Since 1978. Jan Platt has
been a voice of reason on the
County Commission. Her
votes reflect her commitment
to responsible, planned
growth. Her appointments
reflect the respect she has
earned from colleagues. She
is the first Hillsborough
County Commissioner in
tweleve years to head the
Tampa Bay Regional
Planning Council. She
recently finished a term as
chairman of the Commission.
She was the only county or
municipal elected official
named by Governor Reubin
Askew to the Constitution
Revision Commission in
Jan has always been a force
for stability and integrity in
local government. Her
elected service began with a
landslide victory to the
Tampa City Council in 1974.
She promised to construct a
modern, coherent, compact
city charter. Within a year,
she did it. I n 1976. she
headed the Seventh
Congressional District drive
for the Sunshine Amendment
(financial disclosure). She has
initiated the measure
requiring county
commissioners to disclose
financial dealings with other
commissioners or with
staffers. (And yes. she drives
her own car.)

Israel Cabinet, visited a stockade
where Israel was holding terrorist
prisoners. Outside the prison he
struck up a conversation with
two blond girls, both German-

their husbands were being held
unjustly. "We are Germans, -a
cultured people; would we marry

Histadmt Committee Makes Plans
To Protect El Al Workers' Future
The Histadrut has decided
to set up a special commit-
tee to plan future moves to
project what they term the
future of both the El Al na-
tional airline and its em-
ployes, in the face of the
government decision to halt
Sabbath and Jewish holi-
day flights.
Both the labor federation's
central committee and the El Al
workers were in an angry mood,
following action by the airline
management in summoning a
strong police detachment to oust
workers from the management
building at Ben Gurion Airport
where they had kept Transport
Minister Haim Corfu locked up ir
the office of El Al Board chair-
man Nahman Perl while they
were meeting, pounding on the
door to halt the conversation.
THE WORKERS have ac-
cused the management of not
being firm enough in opposing
the government decision, which
they claim will damage the airline
financially, merely to preserve
the Begin coalition.
The worker's action followed
the decision by the Knesset Fi-
nance Committee to approve the
Cabinet's action to ban El Al
Sabbath flights beginning Sept.
Premier Menachem Begin
agreed to the shutdown under in-
tense pressure from Agudat Is-
rael, a member of his coalition. El
Al representatives warned that
the shutdown would cause the
struggling airline to lose an esti-
mated $40 million annually, i
loss that could mean the end of E
The police, who brought up a
large detachment of the tough
border police and water cannons
to disperse the angry El Al work-
ers at the airport, arrested eight
members of the airline's workers
committee after the incident in
the management office but re-
leased them later to avoid a
Beginning: JCC Softball
Attention all JCC softball players! (and those who think they
can play a fun game of softball.)
Beginning Sept. 12, the JCC will hold their first fall softball
league for those who still want to get out and "swing." Games
will be held on Sunday mornings at 9:30 at Hyde Park field, and
if needed. Hunt playground.
Anyone over the age of 15 can play, and if you're interested,
call the JCC and Danny Thro (872-4451) as soon as possible.
Sign-ups will be limited, so you'd better do it now.
See you Sunday, Sept. 12.
threatened general walkout of all
airline workers.
THE AIRLINE is working
now. Management reported the
"normal number for this time of
the year" of cancellations of
bookings. It had been feared that
talk of industrial unrest following
the Cabinet decision, strengthen-
ed by an 11-10 vote in favor of
Sabbath shutdown by the Knes-
set Finance Committee last week,
would scare passengers off re-
serving future flights with El Al.
Among the steps reportedly
considered by Histadrut, at the
urging of the El Al workers com-
mittee and the committee of re-
presentatives of the major indus-
trial enterprises, are the enforced
closing of the airport on Satur-
days and a possible general
strike, especially of enterprises
which normally have to work on
Saturdays, such as the electric
corporation and the telephone
