Campaign Chairman Walter H.
Kessler has announced a pledge
total of $677,000 as of Jan. 1 for
the 1987 Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal Cam-
paign. This represents a 30 per-
cent card-for-card increase over
1986. "Not only are we more than
a third of the way toward our
goal," Kessler stated, "but we are
1400,000 ahead of where we were
at this time last year."
Kessler pointed out that these
record-breaking statistics are the
results of a dedicated corps of
solicitors and a high level of com-
mitment from our contributors.
"We are also grateful for the
response of our major beneficiary
agencies Board of Directors who
have helped to set the pace with
their increased giving," Kessler
Goal Setting
the 1987 Campaign and Federa-
tion leadership, in an attempt to
realistically establish a goal for
the 1987 campaign, embarked on
a two-fold approach. First, the
recipient agencies were asked to
prepare a budget for 1987-1988
based on needs. Secondly, the
Federation Board of Directors
and the agencies Boards of Direc-
tors were then asked to make
their individual commitments to
the 1987 campaign.
The agencies results are ex-
tremely encouraging, with
percentage increases averaging
over 40 percent. The leadership
was in agreement that unless
those involved in the community
agencies are willing to increase
their financial participation, then
they could not expect the rest of
the community to also respond.
After a review of the projected
budgets, a goal based on needs
totaled $1.5 million. The cam-
paign cabinet and the Tampa
Jewish Federation Executive
Committee have recommended a
minimum 1987 goal of $1.4 million
which would be approximately 30
percent higher than the 1986 cam-
paign. The Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion Board of Directors will
ultimately set the goal at the end
of January, and are expected to
adopt the $1.4 million
The beneficiaries of the 1987
Tampa Jewish Federation/United
Jewish Appeal Campaign will in-

UNITED JEWISH APPEAL ... The Uniied Israel Appeal is the major beneficiary of
fund* raised by (he United Jewish Appeal. As such, it evaluates programs and projects carried out by the
Jewish Agency for Israel and determines the appropriate use of these funds tor the Agency"s work in im-
migrant absorption, housing, health care, job training, education, senior citizen programs, agricultural
settlements, and youth services.
Additionally, Uniied Jewish Appeal funds support the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee
(JCD). Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS). and New York Association for New Americans (NYANA).
The JCD which includes ORT, provides a wide range of health, welfare and cultural services to needy Jews
in 43 countries around the world. HIAS helps Jewish immigrants in countries other than Israel; NYANA
does so in the greater New York area, where the majority of U.S. resettlements take place.
TAMPA JEWISH FEDERATION ... The Tampa Jewish Federation is the modern
expression of thousands of years of Jewish communal history. Crucial in this history is a system of ethical
and moral values which express the fundamental principle of Tzedakah justice and righteousness, con-
cern for one's fellow man.
The Federation is the community instrument for meeting our responsibilities to provide essential services
for our people, whatever the needs may be. Improving the quality of life for people at all social and economic
levels is the goal of each of the services and programs conducted by the Federation, its affiliates and
Working together through the Tampa Jewish Federation can and does make an important impact on
Jewish life everywhere in the world.
JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER The Tampa Jewish Community Center provides
a meeting ground for individuals and groups of different ages and backgrounds, and offers the entire family
rewarding use of its leisure time. Parents and children can come together here, strengthening family ties
by sharing their hours of relaxation. Children can find constructive outlets for their energy and projects
for their minds, through the Jewish Community Center's nursery school program, day care, summer camp
programs, after school, and extensive sports activities. Senior adults can embark on new ventures, make
new friends, develop new interests, and lead busy and productive lives through the many programs offered
at the Center. The Jewish Community Center's educational and cultural program fulfill a wide variety of
needs for the entire Tampa Jewish community.
TAMPA JEWISH FAMILY SERVICES ... The critical importance of family life is
basic to the Jewish tradition. The Tampa Jewish Federation, through the Tampa Jewish Family Services,
supports and enriches the basic structure of Jewish family life, with community support systems to aid
families in crisis and help families maintain their strengths.
The Agency provides counseling for families as the pressures of living in today's world becomes more
complex. Basic services include counseling for marital difficulties, family life education programs, counsel-
ing for family problems, parent-child relationships, behavioral and school problems, services to the aged,
I manual and employment difficulties, and counseling for individual adults and adolescents under stress
or with emotional problems.
HILLEL SCHOOL OF TAMPA Hillel School is now serving over 100 students from
Kindergarten through 8th Grade at its new campus located on the grounds of the Jewish Community Center.
The Hillel School has a dual track program offering an enriched general studies and Judaic studies cur-
riculum. The general studies curriculum consists of language arts, mathematics, science, the social sciences,
computers, and the fine arts. The Judaic studies consists of Jewish history integrated with world history,
religious ritual and celebrations. Torah and Prophets, Hebrew language and Rabbinic literature. In a relatively
short period of time, the Hillel School has gained wide community recognition and continues to strive for
excellence in the services it offers.
See I9W. Campaign Allocahom for complete list.
There's Still Time
The Tampa Jewish Federation is the central coordinating and social planning agency
for the Tampa Jewish community. Through the Tampa Jewish Federation, Tampa's
Jewry unites for a common purpose: to help fellow Jews live as Jews with pride, in
safety and without want, wherever they may be.
In 1986, the Tampa Jewish community fell short of its campaign goal. As a result,
many programs and services have been curtailed and we have not met our obligation
to national and overseas Jewish responsibilities.
The 1987 Tampa Jewish Federation/United Jewish Appeal Campaign will test our
ability to provide a full share of the funds required to meet the totality of Jewish needs
throughout the world.

Relations In Brazil
National Bishops' Conference
of Brazil has issued a 187-page
"Guide for a Catholic-Jewish
Dialogue in Brazil," according
to Rabbi Henry Sobel, coor-
dinator of the National Com-
mission for Catholic-Jewish
Dialogue sponsored by the
Bishop's Conference there.
Sobel, who heads the com-
mission of five Jewish and five
Catholic leaders, is rabbi at
Congregacao Israelite Paulista
in Sao Paulo, the largest
synagogue in Latin America.
The guide was prepared by
the commission and
distributed last month to
Brazi's 229 Catholic ar-
chdioceses and dioceses by the
National Bishops' Conference,
and it covers such subjects as
Israel, Jewish history, the
Holocaust, roots of anti-
Semitism, Judaism in Brazil,
and interfaith cooperation,
Sobel said during his visit to
New York last week to speak
to the American Jewish
BRAZIL HAS the largest
Catholic population in the
world, some 117 million, and
the Jewish population is only
about 150,000. "The mere fact
that the Catholic Church
reaches out to the small Jewish
minority reflects theological
and political sensitivity, com-
mitment and vision,' Sobel
Most significant is the fact
that the book acknowledges
the legitimate existence of the
State of Israel within secure
boundaries, Sobel said. He em-
phasized, however, that the
Bishops' Conference does not
have within its powers the
ability to recognize or not
recognize Israel. "This can on-
ly come from the Vatican,"
Sobel said. "But the mere fact
that the Brazilian Bishops
speak of 'the right of the Jews
to a peaceful political existence
in their land of origin' reflects
tremendous sensitivity."
The introduction to the
guide says its objective is
"helping Catholics in Brazil to
understand better the
historical, religious and na-
tional aspirations of the Jewish
Written in simple language,
the guide is designed to
stimulate discussion on
Judaism in the Catholic chur-
ches and schools in Brazil.
Suggested questions include:
Does anyone know a Jew? Are
there prejudices in this socie-
ty? To what extent is the
figure of Judas used to
strengthen prejudices against
Jews? The manual points out
the sources of traditional and
continuing distrust between
Catholics and Jews.

political activism for social
justice in Brazil. In addition,

and action and deeply commit-

community," according to
In November, 1986, in com-
memoration of the 20th an-
niversary of No8tra Aetate, the
first Pan-American Con-
ference on Catholic-Jewish
Relations was held in Sao
Paulo, under the sponsorship
of the Brazilian Bishops' Con-
ference. Seven resolutions
were adopted, including one
that stated "Zionism is not
racism," to mark the 10th an-
niversary of the United Na-
tions General Assembly adop-
tion of the infamous Zionism is

In his remarks te the

Readers Write
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I believe your readers may have
an interest in what the Jewish
community does to assist Jewish
prisoners. Unlike most other
denominations, the answer is
generally nothing, with the
notable exception of the Lubavit-
cher organization. Having just
celebrated Chanukah with their
assistance the contrast became
apparent and the need to com-
municate it, immediate.
Lubavitchers have been the only
consistent Jewish contact
available to myself and fellow
Jewish prisoners during the past
four years. They have provided
much needed moral support and
guidance as well as intellectual
outlet. Prison is not meant to be
pleasant, but it need not be moral-
ly debilitating, if a support system
is available. Lubavitchers are, to
the extent possible, providing that
Your time and interest are

Former Denver Home Of Golda Men-
May Face Demolition This Month
DENVER (JTA) The City of Denver
may succeed in doing what the combined
Arab armies never could destroying Golda
Meir's home. The Denver Building Depart-
ment board of appeals was set to vote Thurs-
day whether to order the demolition of the
Golda Meir House, the home of the late Israeli
premier from 1913-14.
The board decided last month to postpone
its final decision of an appeal by local
residents Mel and Esther Cohen of a demoli-
tion decision reportedly backed by Mayor
Federico Pena.
THEY WERE representing the Golda Meir
Memorial Association. To save the house, the
board ordered the association to demonstrate
by Jan. 15 that it can restore, relocate and
utilize the building, entailing an extensive list
of conditions that could cost up to $150,000.
Meanwhile, the association must provide
additional security for the ramshackle struc-
ture, now stored on girders in the park here.
Building Department inspectors told the
board that the house is dangerous because of
structural weakness that could not practically
be restored due to deterioration.
Paul Hoskins, director of the city's Com-
munity Development Agency, said that the ci-
ty has spent upward of $27,000 and staff time
on utilizing the house over the last six years.
THE ASSOCIATION asked for six months
to begin its efforts to create a memorial to
Meir with the house. It now is seeking fun-
ding from foundations as well as voluntary
labor. A structural engineer it hired said the
building would not immediately collapse and
could be restored.
There was better news regarding the Pearl
Street Temple here, which the City and Coun-
ty of Denver plan to purchase.
Mayor Pena called the building historically
and architecturally important. It was the
center of the Jewish community for 60
years," said Rabbi Raymond Zwerin.
The city will invest $1 million. The Pearl
Street Temple Emanuel Foundation, the
organization formed in 1983 to prevent the
scheduled razing of the building, must raise
$250,000 to finalize the purchase.
Renovation of systems and addition of han-
dicap access will be funded by a $200,000 city
grant and $350,000 from the foundation,
which hopes to create a community center.

"OUR MOST urgent task in
Brazil today is not only to com-

trends. Brazilians are among a
most tolerant people, and con-
sequently, anti-Semitism is not

task is to motivate Jews to re-
main Jews."
Sobel emphasized that he
was not discounting dif-

the Israeli operation in
Lebanon as a excuse to itensify

Israel Touring Program Designed
To Challenge College Students
A touring program designed to
challenge the intellect of college-
age students by presenting a
glimpse of many aspects of Israeli
life is being offered this summer
exclusively by the American
Zionist Youth Foundation's Israel
Program Center.
Called, simply enough, the Col-
lege Summer Program, this uni-
que offering presents a com-
prehensive picture of Israel, its
history, development and politics.
According to Amos Doron of the
Israel Program Center, specially
selected and trained guides will
lead participants through four
weeks of touring. "Designed and
refined over many years by par-
ticipants themselves, the College
Summer Program accomplishes
the perfect blend of discovery,
education and fun," Mr. Doron
The basic 30-day program may
be lengthened by five days with
selection of an option which in-
cludes five days in a kibbutz guest
house or five days with an ar-
chaeological dig and moshav.
Participants in the program are
offered the option of extending
their stay in Israel following the
formal itinerary or stopping off in
Europe before returning to the
United States. It is open to
students 18-22, with medical cer-
tification of good health. Ap-
plicants must complete a formal
application and a personal inter-
view which will be held in major
cities throughout the U.S.
"The AZYF is an educational
foundation working in close
cooperation with the Youth and
Hechalutz Department of the
World Zionist Organization in
Jerusalem," Doron explained.
"Parents can feel secure in the
knowledge that the Israel Pro-
gram Center brings more youth to
Israel every summer than all in-
dependent groups combined. Last
year, Youth and Hechalutz profes-
sionals who are responsible for the
programming and security for
young people from all over the
world, hosted more than 5,000
young Americans. El Al is the ex-
clusive carrier of the Israel Pro-
gram Center."

other unique programs in Israel

Several generations of

The only day that the
mag8himim conference in-
tersected with the official four-
day Zionist Assembly, the
Ciger generation had some
h words for the elders.
Joel Sweet, a member of
Garin Gal Hadash and
Habonim, criticized the Jewish
Agency which funds the
Zionist youth movements.
Following an appeal for aliya
by Leon Dulzin, Chairman of
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion and of the Jewish Agency
Executives, Sweet said, "I am
really beginning to doubt the
integrity of the men who run
the Jewish Agency." Sweet
told Dulzin that the youth
movements still have no
budgets for educational cam-
paigns and group activities.
"If you really think we're rele-
vant, don't tell us, show us."
vention was a waste of
resources because almost all of
the mag8himim are already
committed to aliya. "We are
still walking back to our
groups with empty pockets,"
he said. Gonen Hacklay,
Treasurer of Habonim Dror of
America, told Dulzin, "Zionist
youth movements waste much
of their time worrying about
where funds will come from
for their next activity ... The
money used to plan this
seminar could have been bet-
ter used to support the youth
movements in Batim (collec-
tive Jewish housing on cam-
pus) and in summer camps."
Simmy Zivel, Director of the
United Kibbutz Movement of
North America, said the
Zionist establishment called
the conference because "The
Zionist organizations in
America no longer have a
monopoly on issues related to
"Everyone in the Jewish
community realizes that some
relationship with Israel is the
single most important compo-
nent in most American Jews'
identity. So people, non-
Zionists, will naturally ask the
Zionist organizations, How are
we different?
"The only way the Zionist
movement can justify its ongo-
ing existence is by dealing with
the one issue that non-Zionists
are not able to make an
ideological stand on namely
MANY OF the magshimim
expressed resentment at being
brought in as a showpiece, a
display for the professionals.
But Becky Rowe, an
organizer of the magshimim
conference and the Director of
the Progressive Zionist
Caucus (PZC), explained the
necessity of the conference.
"It is important to show that
there's a youthful contingent,
that there's vitality in the
AZF," Rowe said. However,
she added, "The hotel is a hor-
rible statement. The shlichim
(emissaries) said this is not for
us, it's a busha (embarrass-
ment). The movements have
no money and they (AZF)
waste so much money. But the
Jewish professionals want

DULZIN, responding to his
youthful critics, acknowledged
the generation gap. "I don't
claim to represent you," he
said. "There is a gap in age, in
time and in temperament. But
nobody will decide aliya for
you but yourself. We will assist
you, we will give you all our
help. But you have to work out
programs of activities and we
will give you our support."
Akiva Lewinsky, treasurer
of WZO and the Jewish Agen-

A belated happy first birthday to the Tampa Bay Family

graphics; Lisa Cohen, Ruth Rogg, Beth Stoller and Becky

One of the new columns to be published starting this spring will
feature a "superstar"; each issue will profile a really exceptional
child who has made a mark in the community. We'll enjoy reading
that, and congratulate this group of committed volunters. For
more information, or to get involved, call 877-0127.

The family service that took
place on Asarah B'teves, tenth
day of the Hebrew month of Teves
which is a public fast day, was
very rewarding. The parents
came with their children so that
they too could experience daven-
ing during the week in a shul. As a
result the children asked many
questions such as: "What are
Tefillin? Why do we read the
Torah on a weekday? Why are
there special prayers said on that
day?" It was explained to them
the significance of this fast day be-
ing the beginning of the destruc-
tion of the Temple. Bais Tefilah is

Dear Friends,
On Sunday, Feb. 1 your phone will ring with the most important phone call you will
receive this year.
The phone rings, the caller identifies himself and explains the purpose of the call.
Then you are asked for a contribution.
Now it's up to you. Will you say no and hang up, possibly feeling guilty or angry?
Will you say yes to the smallest donation you can think of "just to get rid of the pest"?
Or, will you choose to listen thoughtfully to wliat the caller has to say and then give as
generous a contribution as you can to the 1987 Tampa Jewish Federation/United Jewish
Appeal Campaign.
If the third response is your choice, you will be assured of making a difference in the
quality of Jewish life for Jewish men, women and children in Tampa, in Israel and around
the world.
How you answer, what you tell the caller and how you respond along with others in
the community will spell the difference between caring and not caring, and between suc-
cess and failure at a time when failure could cost in terms of human lives and living
This one contribution you make to the Tampa Jewish Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal Campaign helps support local, national, and international Jewish agencies. The
largest beneficiary is the United Jewish Appeal, which provides urgently needed human
services to Jews in Israel and in lands of oppression. The Federation comes to the Tampa
Jewish community just once a year to request this vital donation.
While we are all free to choose whether and how much to contribute who will care
for the elderly, the jobless, the troubled persons in our Jewish community if not Jewish
men and women who, with their contributions, support the Federation and its constituent
Cutbacks in government-funded services and the impact of recent economic trends
have taken their toll. Increased funds are needed to support social services agencies which
provide counseling and other assistance for those in distress.
The only hope of Jews in the Soviet Union and in other countries where Jews are op-
pressed is the continuing involvement and support of Jews in communities such as Tampa;
they cannot be forgotten.
Super Sunday begins at 10 a.m. Sunday, and will end 11 hours later at 9 p.m. More
than 800 volunteers from all segments of the community, working in 2%-hour shifts, will
participate in phoning assignments, doing whatever is required to keep everything func-
tioning smoothly.
When a representative of the Jewish people calls you on behalf of Jews in Tampa
Israel and throughout the world Don't be a tero!
President Campaign Chairma
...When Your Phone Line Becomes o Lifeline


Super Sunday is a very special day. All over the
nation on that day, people will make thousands of
telephone calls in an attempt to reach every house-
hold in the American Jewish community.
On Super Sunday, you will receive a call from one of
your neighbors asking you to help Jews in need at
home, in Israel and around the world.
When your telephone rings, answer the call. Your
support is essential to the quality of Jewish life in the
years ahead.
