death of Leon Klinghoffer, 69, the
American Jewish passenger shot
in bis wheelchair and dumped
overboard after the hijackers seiz-
ed the Italian cruise ship in Egyp-
tian waters last Oct. 7-9.
THE LIFE sentences were pro-

Magied I-Mulqi, a 23-year-old
Palestinian accused of killing Kl-
inghoffer and ordering crew
members to throw his body into
the sea, was sentenced to 30 years
imprisonment. According to
Italian legal experts, the facts sur-
rouding the murder were vague
and the evidence too circumstan-
tial to warrant a conviction for

custody, would in any case have
received a life sentence, the max-
imum penalty allowed under
Italian law.
THE VERDICT was decided

two magistrates who began their
deliberations Monday (July 7)
after a 17-day trial. It was read to

More Absurdities About
Reform From Lubavitch
Friday, July 25, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 3
The attacks of the Lubavitch
Hasidic Movement in Israel
against Reform Judaism have
reached a new level of intensity.
Lubavitch is the primary advocate
of an amendment to the Law of
Return which would exclude
Reform and Conservative Jews
from its provisions. When the
amendment was about to be con-
sidered by the Knesset, Lubavitch
took out ads in the Israeli press
which included the following com-
ments on Reform conversion prac-
tices, and on Reform support for
"Do you want your daughter
to marry a non-Jew who is
registered as a Jew on the authori-
ty of a Reform 'conversion cer-
tificate' which can be acquired in
the United States for $25, without
any serious effort on tile part of
the 'convert'?"
"Is assimilation a tragedy?
Reform Jews don't think so.
Reform Judaism displays 'real
concern' for the future of the
Jewish people. They have found
new methods to increase the
number of Jews. Fictitious, ins-
tant 'conversions' ('quickie con-
versions') are one way ..."
"From time to time different
groups try to threaten that amen-
ding the Law of Return will lead
to a cessation of support for Israel
by American Jews. Here are the
facts as stated by an objective
journalist: 'It should be noted that
most of the Jews who are
prepared to come forward to aid
Israel are not numbered with the
Reform camp of Rabbi Alexander
The intensity of Reform conver-
sion practices and the depth of
Reform commitment to Israel re-
quire no defense in these pages.
Furthermore, we feel it is strik-
ingly inappropriate that our devo-
tion to Zion should be questioned
by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who
has never set foot in Israel and
who has no intention of doing so.
The following letter is in
response to the article "More Ab-
surdities About Reform From
Lubavitch" which ran in the Spr-
ing issue ofARZA Newsletter. AR-
ZA is the Association of Reform
Zionists of America.
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
At a time when we are all con-
cerned with the future of Jewish
life through assimilation and in-
termarriage it is necessary to do
all we can to keep our young peo-
ple within Jewish life. They need
to be encouraged to participate
fully and we also must hold the

Eileen Zalkin and Glenn Mar-
shall Taylor were married Sun-
day, June 22 at the Tampa Airport
Marriott Hotel.
Eileen is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Max Zalkin of Temple

by a cocktail reception and dinner

Maid of honor was Brette
Zalkin, the bride's sister.
Bridesmaids were Eileen Kress of
Tampa; Rene Robinette of Deer-
field Beach; and Erika
Wunderlich of Nashville.

cluded the groom's brothers
David, Michael and Jeff Taylor,
and the the bride's brother, Bruce
Parties for the couple began
with an engagement cocktail par-
ty hosted by tile bride's parents. A
bridal shower was given by Linda
Zalkin, Gail Ebanks, and Caryn
Schwarz; the bride's sister,
Brette, hosted a Bachelorette par-
ty and dinner at CDB's, complete
with entertainment; a rehearsal
brunch was hosted by the groom's

door open to all those who sincere-
ly wish to be Jews.
Along comes the Lubavitch
Hasidic movement in Israel and,
in the name of Judaism, tries to
exclude all non-Orthodox Jews
from being eligible to come to
Israel under the Law of Return.
Not only are reform and conser-
vative Jews loyal supporters of
Israel, but they are attempting
boldly to interpret Judaism so that
it will attract people. They do not
insist that their way is the only
way, they claim there are many
ways one can be Jewish. Or-
thodoxy, Conservatism, Reform,
Reconstructionist, Zionism, Yid-
dishkeit with many combina-
tions of them are all valid ways of
being Jewish. Does the Lubavitch
movement want to define all of
these people out of Jewish life? (in
the name of Torah)
It is colossal arrogance to
assume that there is only one way
and it is a potential tragedy for
the Jewish people.
Perhaps the extreme Orthodox
should heed the words of Rabbi
Nachman of Bratslav whose Or-
thodox credentials needed no
criticism from anyone. His words
are displayed prominently in the
Bet Hatefutzot (Museum of the
Diaspora) in Tel Aviv. He said,
"What kind of God is He who can
be worshipped in one way only?"
To our Lubavitch brothers I say:
For the sake of Israel, Judaism
and decency, practice some of the
humility of your forebearers and
like the Bal Shem Tov, receive all
Jews with an open heart.

sentenced to 15 years and two
months. The others found guilty
drew sentences from six months

Spotlight On...
Bernice Wolf
This is the year of the woman,
and Bernice Wolf has been elected
the first woman president of Con-
gregation Rodeph Sholom. Com-
mitted to synagogue life and the
synagogue as a valued institution,
Bernice feels very comfortable in
her new role. Within this Conser-
vative congregation women have
full rights and they have enjoyed
the privileges of participating in
ail religious events for the past 10
Wolf, a Jacksonville native and
17-year resident of Tampa,
realizes the importance of
organized religion and feels that
most people take the institution
for granted. She said, "The Rabbi
is there when we need him,
religious services and life cycle
events are always available, and
the Religious School stands ready
for our children, so during my
term of office I would like to focus
on the importance of the
synagogue and educate the con-
gregants to the needs of the
synagogue community."
Involving more people and rais-
ing the interest level of participa-
tion is a high priority of Bernice's,
and she hopes to accomplish this
by creating new programming.
One idea is having an adult
weekend retreat to let par-
ticipants experience Shabbat and
religious study together in a relax-
ed atmosphere remote from the
formal building of Rodeph
A second plan is to have under-
writer sponsorship of a Scholar-
In-Residence weekend and host a
noted scholar to share his exper-
tise with the congregants and the
larger Tampa community.
Working with Wolf on the 30
member Board of Trustees are the
following elected officers: Louis
Morris, chairman of the Board;
Martin Solomon, president-elect;
David Linsky, vice president;
Michael Schwartz, vice-president;
Richard Gordimer, treasurer; Jay
Markowitz, financial secretary;
Sherry Friedlander, recording
secretary; and Michael Linsky,
corresponding secretary.
Bernice Wolf is employed as
mail systems manager for the
Clerk of the Circuit Court of
Hillsborough County. She is mar-
ried to Bob Wolf and they have
four children.
Refusenik Writes
Hebrew Textbook
Zeliger, a 37-year-old Leningrad
refusenik, has written a Hebrew
textbook which was recently
published in Israel. The original
manuscript was brought to Israel
from the Soviet Union, according
to the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry. The 671-page book
in Russian and Hebrew is con-
sidered by scholars to be "an ex-
cellent and fundamental tex-
tbook," one which has been lack-
ing in the Russian language.

The Din of Ideas
David K. Shipler, Domestic
Correspondent of the New York
Times Washington Bureau, was
keynote speaker at a recent one-
day conference on "Campus Media
and Minorities: Press Freedom
and Press Responsibility" at Col-
umbia University in New York.
The session was sponsored by the
New York Regional Office of the
Anti-Defamation League, the City
University of New York and the
Columbia Graduate School of
Journalism. Mr. Shipler's talk,
"Journalism in a Pluralistic
Society: Freedom and Tolerance,"
is excerpted in the accompanying
I am not objective about
ethnocentrism, racism and in-
tolerance. I am prejudiced against
the prejudiced, intolerant of the
I grew up in an all-white, pretty
much all-Christian town in New
Jersey called Chatham, where the
local establishment still manages,
as far as I can tell, to keep out
anyone darker than a lily.
This so appalled me that I made
it the subject of a college disserta-
tion in sociology ... a project that
brought me into abrupt contact
with an ugly reality lurking
beneath the pristine affluence of
my community. I interviewed a
range of residents including a real
estate agent, who criticized his
collegues in the house-selling
business, saying they've been "so
busy keeping the damn Niggers
out they let the damn Catholics
sneak in." This was my home
My family was different. They
constructed another environment
entirely. My grandmother, a
Maryland farm girl with little for-
mal education, was the most
educable person I have known.
She came from the South not
recognizing her own prejudices,
but even when she was in her 70s
she was able to grow and change

remember when Sen. Joseph Mc-
Carthy (R., Wise.) was abroad on

every nook and cranny of govern-

grandmother watched in the
darkened living room, steely with
indignation at this Senator with
the sliding eyes and the demented
smile smearing innocents. She
was a tough anti-Communist

She revised every impulse that
had been bred in her. And when

Imagine if you will, growing up
in that America, emerging from a
childhood infested with the neat,
good and evil dichotomy of the
Cold War, coming of age during
the civil rights movement, moving
into adulthood at the outset of the
war in Vietman, discovering the
grinding complexity of poverty,
seeing the values of your country
activated toward reform, then
corrupted in brutality and defeat.
Imagine leaving that America to
live elsewhere for 11 years, first
in Vietnam, then the Soviet
Union, then in Israel, and imagine
coming back to America in the
Reagan era.
The most precious attribute one
can have as a journalist or as a
citizen is the capacity to see that
your truth is not the only truth,
that your faith is not higher than
your neighbor's and that your
sense of yourself need not be
enriched by denigrating others
who are different from you.
These elementary principles of
human tolerance do not rule this
world. There is hardly a society in
the year 1986 that is not undergo-
ing a powerful movement into
separateness and exclusivity
along the lines of race, religion,
nationality and ethnicity.
What this means is that huge
masses of the world's population
are pulling inward, retreating
from the cross-cultural identifica-
tions that have bound diverse
groups into nations and interna-
tional communities. They are
withdrawing into ethnocentrism,
chauvinism, religious fundamen-
talism. They are emphasizing not
their commonality with the rest of
mankind, but their differences.
They are finding refuge and
security in their distinctiveness.
They are exalting their own
groups at the expense of others.
And while there is nothing in-
herently wrong in being proud of
your own heritage or in embrac-
ing your own religion in devout
and literal forms, our unfortunate
experience shows that when such
tendencies become mass
movements and especially when
they take on political overtones,
they breed hatred.
We have witnessed the bloody
results of the tribal self-
righteousness that has thrown
Sikhs against Hindus in the Pun-
jab, as it governed the Hindu-
Moslem conflicts in the India sub-
continent that resulted in the
creation of Pakistan and the
slaughter of thousands. We saw it
in the recent bombing of the Sri
Lanka plane. Speculation is that it
was done by Hindus. We see it in
South Africa's abhorrent system
of apartheid. We saw it in the
Jewish terrorists of Israel, who
proclaimed their rights to kill on
behalf of their militant, religious
nationalist vision, and we see it in
the Islamic fundamentalists of
Iran, who destroy their own peo-
ple and send shivers of apprehen-
sion through the region and other
Moslem societies. We see it in the
terrorism that murders a man, a
woman or child simply because of
the victim's nationality or race.
Thus an innocent librarian in
Lebanon pays the final price
because he happens to carry a cer-
tain passport. He is not a man. He
becomes an object, a crude sym-
bol. One can hardly find a war now
that has not been governed by
ethnic or religious hatred. And
this has been true for the most
part of this century. Iran, Iraq,
Eritrea, Lebanon, Biafra, Ireland,
we could all name many more.
In my most pessimistic
moments, I am afraid that we are
standing at the beginning of a new
Dark Age, the outset of a cycle of
history that may break human
civilization, dividing nations into
many parts, increasingly isolated
and hostile, tearing the fabric of
tolerance and leaving only
violence. It may be that the ex-
perience of Lebanon, whose
citizens no longer think of
themselves first as Lebanese, but
first as Shi'ites or Sunn is or Druze
or Maronites, will prove to be not
an aberration or merely a sick set-
back on the road to human pro-
gress. Rather, Lebanon may pro-
ve to be the future. Beirut may be
the model. When we look there
now, we may be looking into a
crystal ball.
If we could count the larger,
more powerful societies as being
free from these corrosive trends,
perhaps I would be more
sanguine. But one can see the
breeding of intolerance through
religion, race and ethnicity, both
in the United States and in the
Soviet Union. Here, both in the
Protestant fundamentalist
phenomenon and in the manifesta-
tion of anti-black and anti-Semitic
attitudes, there is a dangerous
propensity to imbue political ideas
with moral arrogance. We have
seen where this has led elsewhere.
Something similar exists in the
Soviet Union, although it takes
place beneath the surface of a
closed society. Among the tenden-
cies of thought in Soviet society,
there is one called Russian na-
tionalism or Russian chauvinism.
An underground movement of
ideas which has resonance high in
the political hierarchy, it has
potential power. Essentially it is
the notion that what is Russian is
better than what is not. Since the
Soviet Union has not only Rus-
sians among its population, but
Ukrainians, Georgians, Lithua-
nians, Armenians, Jews, Esto-
nians, Mongols and about 100
other nationalities, the drive to
exalt Russianness has some in-
teresting implications. It tends to
look down on Western things and
ideas as alien and destructive to
Russian culture. This includes
Marxism, by the way, which
Solzhenitzyn described as that
"great un-Russian whirlwind
from the west."
The most extreme Russianists
advocate that each ethnic group
live completely separately inside
the Soviet Union and that Rus-
sians reject anything non-Russian,
whether it be wine or literatute.
Russianists tend to embrace the
Russian Orthodox Church, which
puts them at odds with the Com-
munist authorities. But impulses
of insularity coincide with both
historical Russian attitudes that
began before the Bolshevik
Revolution and with contem-
porary Communist reflexes, in
which walls are built around
Soviet society in envy and fear
and contempt for the outside
If there is to be dramatic change
inside the Soviet Union which I
would not expect it would be
toward a tightening, not a
liberalization, toward a closing in
and a pulling back, a yielding to
the same currents of attitudes
that run through much of the rest
of the world.
I am not quite as morose as my
words indicate. I believe that man
has the capacity to make history
and to change its course, and each
of us has some share in this.
Everyone who writes for a
newspaper and who believes in
what he/she does must have enor-
mous faith in the intelligence of
the public. The best journalist has
respect for the readers, not con-
tempt, and has confidence in their
abilities to make up their own

Israel Tries Hand At Central America Peacemaking
Belize, Guatemala, Come to
Table at Jerusalem
JERUSALEM Israel is a fre-
quent customer for mediation ser-
vices by others between her and
her Arab neighbors, but seldom
can Israelis cast themselves in the
role of neutral conciliators. So it
was with some satisfaction that
local politicians and officials wat-
ched the first such effort get off to
a promising start.
Barely one day earlier, Prime
Minister Manuel Esquivel of
Belize had opened his official visit
here by asking Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
to exercise Israel's good services
between his country and its
neighbor, Guatemala. The latter
has since time immemorial claim-
ed the entire territory of Belize
(formerly British Honduras), and
when Belize rather reluctantly ac-
cepted independence in 1981 a
British regiment stayed behind to
deter any Guatemalan thoughts of
an invasion.
The next day, Shamir was to
hold a state luncheon in Esquivel's
honor. Protocol dictated inviting
the Dean of the Diplomatic Corps
who happens to be the
Guatemalan Ambassador. A
senior Israeli official presented
the invitation with some ap-
prehension; to his delight, the am-
bassador accepted immediately.
And so it was that the Prime
Minister and Ambassador of these
hostile countries broke every
precedent by sharing a table at
the King David Hotel, along with
Minister of Justice Yitzhak Moda'i
(substituting for Shamir) and
Labor Minister Moshe Katzav.
Neither Moda'i nor Esquivel
mentioned this modest bit of
history in their toasts, but the
visiting Prime Minister said in an
interview shortly after, "It may
be a first step. Your government
went out of its way to invite the
Ambassador, and he was very
friendly and co-operative ...
we're optimistic, as there is a new
government in Guatemala a
civilian one, the first in a long
time. The new president appears
to be a very reasonable person."
(And is also one of the next official
guests expected in Israel soon.)
The first indication of Israel's
possible intermediary role as a
friend of both the Central
American nations came several
months ago when Guatemala gave
its tacit approval for the establish-
ment of diplomatic relations bet-
ween Jerusalem and Belmopan,
Belize's new capital. Israel had
been a major supplier of military
hardware to the previous regime
in Guatemala, especially after the
Carter Administration cut off
military aid there because of
human rights violations, and Es-
quivel said that this naturally was
Qlft Certificates

a cause of concern to the
"The Guatemalan army consists
of about 25,000 men," he said.
"We could never match such a
war machine." (Belize has a land
area almost exactly the size of
Israel's, but a population of only
about 160,000.) "Therefore
anything that enhances their
military power concerns us. But I
think that from Israel's point of
view they feel that these arms are
intended for their own internal
security. We would certainly hope
that that is the case." So it ap-
pears that Esquivel has dropped
any hope of cutting off these sup-
plies entirely; only this spring a
shipment of ammunition and a
helicopter en route from Israel to
Guatemala came to light when it
was impounded in Greece.
For his own country, Esquivel
had only civilian aid in mind. "We
think that because of the expertise
that you have developed over the
past 40 years ... there is a lot
that we could learn from you.
Agriculture will remain a major
sector of our economy, and
however more efficient we make
it the better off we will be. So
we're looking in the area of
technical assistance." The
Foreign Ministry has already pro-
mised a survey mission to assess
Belize's needs, to be followed by
experts in the fields that are
selected. But Esquivel also made
an unabashed pitch for direct in-
vestment by Israeli private enter-
prise noting that his govern-
ment was offering entrepreneurs
even instant citizenship. "What
we're trying to develop is an in-
terest in Belize, particularly with
a view to investment on the part
of Israelis in our agriculture or
Leading the way in this respect
was the Japan-based international
business conglomerate of Saul
Eisenberg, who was recently nam-
ed as Belize's Honorary Consul in
Israel and won Esquivel's public
tribute for "helping to bring this
visit about." Eisenberg stuck to
his usual refusal to make any
press comment when asked about
his interests in Belize, but it was
learned that he was involved in
the oil extraction industry there
(vegetable oil, that is).
Israel's Honoray Consul in
Belize, the Prime Minister noted,
is a member of the country's
minute Jewish community of
which there was only one other
member he knew of. To which,
presumably, might be added Mrs.
Esquivel, the former Kathleen
Levy. The Arab community there
is larger: the veteran component
of it are Palestinians who
gravitated to Belize from all over
Latin America, and the rest are
Syrians and Lebanese, all Chris-
tian. So it is hardly surprising that
of the Arab countries Belize has
diplomatic relations only with
Lebanon, though Esquivel
ascribes this mainly to a lack of in-
itiative on the part of the others.
Neither did he make any con-

Hillel Students Score High
On Iowa Test For Basic Skills
The students at the Hillel
School of Tampa have done it
again!!! They have continued their
outstanding performance on the
Iowa Test of Basic Skills by scor-
ing in the top four percent points
on a national average.
There are three main goals for
taking these achievement tests: 1)
to measure the students' perfor-
mance, 2) to evaluate the effec-
tiveness of the teachers, and 3) to
assess how the Hillel School cur-
riculum compares with national
standards. The results of the Iowa
Test of Basic Skills help the Board
of Directors, the Education Com-
mittee, the Headmaster, the facul-
ty, and the parents judge how well
the students are doing and how
well the school is doing.
The 1986 test results once again
give clear evidence that the
students and the school are doing
very well since the marks were
very high. There is ample
evidence that the curriculum is at
a very high level and the teaching
methods are highly effective since
the class averages indicate that all
classes are performing at a
minimum of two years above
grade level.
The scores are reported in two
ways: grade equivalents and
percentiles. The percentdles do not
reflect individual test scores; they
are a means of comparing overall
performance. For example, the
third grade class at Hillel scored
in the 99th percentile nationally
and 99th percentile in comparison
to other Catholic and private
shools in the Southeastern states.
The sixth graders scored in the
96th percentile nationally and the
97th percentile on the Catholic
and private school norms.
The grade equivalent scores in-
dicate the average performance
for a class. An example of this is
the fourth grade class at Hillel.
The grade equivalent achieved
was 62.0 indicating that the
overall class is functioning as well
as students in the second month of
the sixth grade. The fifth grade
class achieved an average grade
equivalent of 74.6 indicating that
they were functioning as well as

students in the fourth month of
the seventh grade.
A summary of the composite
scores for all the grades clearly
show that the overall scftool per-
formance is in the 98th percentile
on the national norms and the
98.4 percentile on the Catholic
and private school norms.
Dr. Mitchell Silverman,
chairperson of the Education
Committee, made the following
comment after reviewing these
test scores: "This objective
evidence clearly shows that Hillel
students not only benefit from a
bi-cultural program but that they
are learning very well. Obviously

pare favorably with national

minds, without being spoon-fed
the right answers.
This is the heart of honest jour-
nalism and the heart of an open
society, too. By contrast, a
totalitarian system, such as the
Soviet, regards information as the
property of the state to be parcel-
ed out only in so far as it is
necessary for society to be ruled
in an orderly fashion. Hence, the
scarce early details on the tragic
nuclear accident in the Soviet
Information in such a society is
rarely distributed to provoke
debate, rather it is offered to
stimulate the correct responses.
This refusal to address problems
openly does not make them go
away. It allows them to fester.
There is no guarantee that our
method, by contrast, of turning
problems out into the sunlight will
cure them. But it is certain that
without such open display they
will not be cured. Nor can the peo-
ple exercise their power if they
are not informed.
We are different from the Rus-
sians in our political culture,
powerfully different. While I was
in Moscow, an American pro-
fessor, who was teaching a course
in American politics at Moscow
State University, got into a
discussion with a Soviet historian
about the American political
system. After the Soviet historian
asked a lot of questions about
American political parties and
how they worked, he shook his
head and said, "your system
sounds very weak. You have all
these different ideas flying
around. That's very bad for your
army. Now we," the Soviet said,
"we have one idea." He didn't
understand that the American
idea was the din or the clamor
of many ideas.
By not publishing statements
based on racist attitudes, they will
not disappear. But there are ways

In recent national testing, Hillel School
students finished two years above their
grade level in every category. The table
below indicates that our third graders
read as well as fifth graders. In their
composite scores our children did better

the nation.

of turning bigotry into the
sunlight without endorsing it.
There are ways of putting it on
display without trying to sell it or
spread it.
One way is to observe the tradi-
tion of die American press in
strictly separating news from opi-
nion. This is not a worldwide rule.
In Western Europe, for example,
editorial opinion is usually woven
into the news coverage. The same
is true in the Middle East. That
makes both Israeli and Arab
newspapers considerably less
useful to American cor-
respondents, for example, who
would like to know, first of all,
what is going on. And only
secondly, if at all, what the
reporter happens to think.
I have been accused by people
who have read my stories of hav-
ing many opinions that I do not
hold. And that is good. A reporter
should keep himself out of stories.
Every democracy is delicate.
We are no exception. As a society
of immigrants and with a legacy
of slavery, we carry a special
burden of prejudice and a par-
ticular obligation to continue
striving to eradicate that pre-
judice. Unlike some other places
on this earth, most people here do
not try to destroy others who
think differently. The survival of
democracy rests on pluralism, the
tolerance of many ideas, the din of

regard to the Palestinians and
what should be their fate par-
ticularly the concept of a Palesti-
nian homeland.
"One reason for our coming
here was to get a better grasp of
the situation; from all the way
across the Atlantic it's hard to
assess the various positions, and
since my government came to
power (in the election of
December, 1984) we have taken a
hands-off attitude because we
really felt we did not understand
them properly.
We now are in a better position
to understand, when calls are
made for a Palestinian homeland,
exactly what the various concepts
are whether it should be an in-
dependent state or part of another
one and therefore we are jn a
better position to make an in-
telligent decision as to what is the
most reasonable solution. The
Israeli concept, as it has been ex-
plained to us, does appear to be
very reasonable" although Es-
quivel stopped short of commit-
ting Belize to support that
n.Ha,S0 was the flaws in an analogy I tried to
draw between Israel and Belize:
hostile neighbors with designs on
our territories, small cultural
islands in vast oceans of other
languages and civilizations,
diverse populations of our own, a
common heritage of parliamen-
ry democracy from the days of
British rule. Esquivel gladly
acknowledged especially the lat-
ter parallel, though Israel's
iO-year British period hardly com-
pares with Belize's 860. But he
tended to stress the differences,
rather than the similarities, in
other respects.
Earlier, he had noted that as a
small country Belize could hardly
have global policies distinct from
its own direct interests. Israeli
sources, asked to sum up Belize's
voting record at the UN, said
"well, they aren't part of the
automatic anti-Israel vote."
Perhaps, by maintaining a friend-
ly neutrality, Belize can in her
small but proud way reciprocate
for the Israeli peacemaking effort
that was begun over a luncheon
table in Jerusalem.

North End Site at Congregation
Kol Ami is progressing "as fast as
we can and work began July 15 of
the actual building," according to
Barry Karpay, chairman of the
North End Building Committee.
MSR Construction has been
awarded the contract to build the
3600-square-foot building, one
that features a permanent-look
with the advantage of mobility.
"We looked hard at what the
best route to take as far as the
building goes," added Karpay.
"And MSR Construction showed
us how we could make a building
with concrete blocks and still be
able to move it should we need
The building features four
classroom/meeting rooms for ad-
ditional space that the JCC has
been looking for in the ever-
growing north end of Tampa.
Along with the four rooms, there
will be an office and conference
room, a storage room and a kit-
chen area in one of the
classrooms. Each room will also
be equipped with a sink and plenty
of storage area.
"Much credit needs to go to
Barry and his committee," said
JCC President Lee Tobin. "Many
hours have been spent in seeing
that the best use of the facility for
the least amount of capital outlay
be done.
"And I know that the entire
Jewish community will be proud
of this facility as a start of bigger
and better things for the North
The committee consists of Kar-
pay, Tobin, Leah Davidson, Jack
Roth, Sandy Solomon, Mark
Rosenthal and Marty Pear.
Assisting the committee on the in-
terior design is Sara Cohen.
"Congregation Kol Ami has
been very professional in their
help towards seeing that we get
everything going," added Karpay.
"And we look to October 1 to be in

T'was the Night of Fantasia
Twos the night of the auction and all thru the place,
were elaborate displays surrounded in lace
A mountain of merchandise was there to be bought,
"please let it sell" was our only main thought
The stuff had been sorted and marked and collected,
by people whose spirits by now were dejected
And you'd know what I mean, if one you'd been thru it,,
you had to be nuts to say you would do it'
More rapid than eagles, the bidders they came,
and thru cocktails and dinner it was more of the same
With twenties and fifties and hundreds they paid,
till over sixteen thousand dollars was made
Our feet how they ached us, our backs how they tired,
our hair stood on end as if it was wired!
And when it was over we fell plop into bed,
While thoughts of the auction spun around in our head
We could fall into sleep and be sure of good rest,
for with workers like you, we truly were blessed
I want to say thanks and to be quite specific,
for each one of you made Fantasia terrific
And I wish to exclaim now the goal has been won,
"A big thank you to all for job A so well done!"
