Henny Youngman was born in
London in 1906: his parents, Rus-
sian immigrants, settled in New
York when Henny was six months
old. Given a violin by an aunt, the
eight-year-old boy was forced to
take violin lessons. That violin re-
mains a prop in his rapid fire
monologue act. "King of the one-
liners" is a mantle bestowed upon
Youngman by the late journalist
Walter Winchell. In his patented
machine-gun style, he rattles off
gags like a 33 1/3 rpm comedy
album played at 78.
Truly a legend of our times, the
81-year-old Youngman has a men-
tal backlog of thousands of jokes
gathered from his 61 years in
show business.
You are encouraged to respond
early as reservations will be
limited.

TEL AVIV (JTA) The Reagan Ad-

companies to sign long-term contracts
with the Israel Air Force in connection
with the Lavi fighter plane project which
Washington wants Israel to abandon,
Haaretz reported
THE U.S. MAINTAINS there is no point in
entering long-term contracts while Israel ex-
amines alternatives to the Lavi which have been
proposed by the Pentagon.
The Lavi, a prototype of which had its first test
flights last month, is Israel's second generation jet
combat aircraft.
It is financed by U.S. military grants, but the
Pentagon insists production costs would be ex-
cessive. Haaretz noted that the Americans argue
that if Israel chooses an alternative to the Lavi,
contracts entered into would have to be cancelled,
requiring compensation for the American com-
panies that would only add to the cost of the
project.
ACCORDING TO Haaretz, the American move
has no practical significance at this stage and does
not affect continuing work on the Lavi.

The technicians said their

28.6 % Increase
Effective Feb. 20, the Tampa Jewish Federation will
have to cut back on the number of Jewish Floridians that
are distributed to the community.
Annually the Tampa Jewish Federation has spent in
excess of $18,000 to provide the Floridian to the identified
Jewish households in Hillsborough County. Our Campaign
in 1986 fell short of its goal resulting in the need to cu*
expenses. Federation realizes that the newspaper is an
important vehicle to disseminate Jewish community news,
and we would like you to continue to receive each issue.
Individuals who contribute at least $25 to the Tampa
Jewish Federation/United Jewish Appeal Campaign, will
receive the Floridian on a regular basis. Those who pledge
less will receive limited editions of the paper.
To ensure my receipt of the Jewish Floridian, enclosed

"anybody crazy enough to venture up there," says Celina in
Moreland Hills. Take care, and come back to visit soon!
There's at least three reasons to be very proud of Julie
Schwartz, daughter of Dr. Robin and Susan Schwartz. Not only
did the 5th grader at Northwest Elementary get straight A's, but,
she had her letter to the editor printed in the Tampa Tribune, too.
Julie wrote about vandalism, and her principal sent her a letter
commending her for taking a stand and being concerned. The
third accolade for Julie was winning a first place for her
Hillsborough County Science Fair project, "Optical Illusion."
Wow, what a terrific kid!

Super
Sunday
Super Sunday proved beyond a
doubt that "We are 'One People'
One Destiny."
On Sunday, Feb. 1, the Jewish
Community Center was the place
where the action was. Hundreds
of volunteers participated in the
annual Tampa Jewish Federation
Phonathon calling upon fellow
Jews to support the needs of the
Jewish community in Tampa, in
Israel and around the world.
"The Tampa Jewish community
responded generously and provid-
ed one of the most successful
Super Sundays ever held. The
results showed a 47.2 percent in-
crease on a card for card basis
over last year," stated Cathy
Gardner and Don Weinbren,
Super Sunday co-chairmen.
In addition, hundreds of new
gifts were obtained from in-
dividuals who never contributed
to the Tampa Jewish Federation.
"While this certainly indicates the
concern and commitment of a
growing Jewish community, we
still are far from the completion of
our campaign. There still is much
to do."
"The 1987 Tampa Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Appeal
Campaign will continue through
the end of March," added Walter
Kessler, 1987 Campaign
Chairman.

Terrorists Renew Threats Against
Lebanese Jews
By GEORGE E. GRUEN, PhD
Director, Middle East Affairs
International Relations Department
The American Jewish Committee
The radical Shi'ite Muslim
group that has claimed respon-
sibility for kidnapping and killing
seven Lebanese Jews in the past
21 months has now stepped up its
campaign of terror by again
threatening to kill all remaining
hostages unless its demands are
met.
What makes this particularly
ominous is that the renewed
threat by the self-styled
"Organization of the Oppressed
(Mustadhafin) in the World" was
delivered to the Beirut paper an-
Nahar on Jan. 6, only a week after
the terrorist group had announced
the execution of three Lebanese
Jewish hostages.
The Shi'ite terrorist group con-
tended that the men had been ex-
ecuted because they were "spies
for the Israeli Mosaad" who had
supplied Israel with information
on the Islamic Resistance, a coali-
tion of Lebanese anti-Israeli
groups. The tuning of the latest
executions, it said, was "in
retaliation for Israel's attacks
against the south and western
Bekaa (Valley) and the terrorist
attacks against our people in oc-
cupied Palestine." (A spokesman
for the Israeli Foreign Ministry
responded that "the gratuitous
murder of three innocents reveals
the true nature of terrorist
movements in Lebanon," and
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
vowed that Israel would seek out
and punish "these barbarians"
who again had "used defenseless
Jews as a means of hitting at
Israel.")
The latest victims were
reported to be Elie Srour, an elec-
trical engineer near 50, who had
been kidnapped on March 28,
1985; Youssef (Joseph) Benesti,
33, kidnapped mid-May, 1985; and
Henri Mann, a man in his fifties
who lived alone in Muslim-
controlled West Beirut. Until the
publication of Mann's photograph
and the announcement of his "ex-
ecution" by the Organization of
the Oppressed, there had been no
information that he had been
abducted.
The kidnapping and murder of
Mr. Mann provides further
evidence that the fanatical group
was deadly serious when it first
declared, on Dec. 28, 1985, that it
would strike against other Jews
"on whom we may lay our hands"
unless its demands against Israel
were met. That threatening state-
ment was issued at the time of the
murder of the first two hostages:
Haim Cohen, 38, a department
store accountant, on Dec. 24,
19857 and Professor Isaac Tarrab,
70, a retired professor of
mathematics, whose body was
found at the end of the month.
Neither Mr. Cohen nor Prof.
Tarrab was involved in partisan
Lebanese politics or in the Arab-
Israel conflict in any way. Indeed
it was precisely because they felt
themselves deeply rooted in
Lebanon that they and the other
Jews who have become victims of
Shi'ite terrorism remained behind
IMl
when the vast majority of
Lebanese Jews emigrated either
to Israel or to join relatives in
other countries during the decade
of turmoil that has engulfed
Lebanon. (Today fewer than 10
Jews remain in West Beirut, and
about 70 in East Beirut.) Dr.
Rosemary Cohen, the sister-in-law
of Haim Cohen, has declared that
he "was given the opportunity to
go to Israel. But he did not want
to go so as not to have to face the
possibility of killing his Arab
friends." A neighbor and former
student of Prof. Tarrab stressed
to me that he was not a Zionist
and in fact had virtually no con-
nection with Jewish life. "He was
not interested in anything but his
figures and his pipe." The killing
of this gentle old man, she said,
was "a senseless death."
The kidnap and murder victims
are of diverse backgrounds and
ages. They have only two things in
common: they were known to be
Jews and they had the bad fortune
of living in West Beirut, which
made them targets of opportunity
for the radical Muslim elements.
The third murder victim was
Ibrahim Benesti, 34, the brother
of Joseph. Ibrahim's body was
found by the police on Feb. 19,
1986. The coroner's office
reported that he had been shot
twice and strangled. The body
also bore signs of torture and
beatings to the head. Both
Ibrahim and the father of the two
men, Yehuda Benesti, 70, had
been kidnapped earlier in
February. It is tragically ironic
that when Joseph had been ab-
ducted the previous May, the
father at first did not report the
disappearance to the police,
because he believed that his
friends and customers of his shop
within the surrounding Shi'ite and
Palestinian communities would
discreetly intervene on behalf of
his son and secure his release.
The fourth victim was Dr. Elie
Hallak, 58, Vice President of the
Lebanese Jewish community. Dr.
Hallak was one of the four Jews
kidnapped over the last weekend
in March, 1985. Reportedly armed
men in uniform had dragged him
from his home on Friday night,
during the Sabbath meal. His "ex-
ecution" was announced in a
statement published on Feb. 19,
1986 in the Lebanese press. The
Organization of the Oppressed
said that it would not release his
body until Israel "stopped its
criminal operations" in southern
Lebanon, withdrew from "all of
the occupied territories" and
released "all our brothers detain-
ed in Khiyam," a South Lebanese
Army detention camp. The same
conditions were reiterated by the
group in refusing to release the
bodies of the latest three victims.
It is speculated that the bodies
have not been released either
because the Shi'ite terrorist group
does not want to reveal evidence
that it had tortured them too or
because they may have been killed
some time ago.
Mrs. Rachel Hallak still vainly
hopes'that her husband may yet

her husband, a noted pediatrician,
was known as "the doctor of the
poor," because he would not col-
lect fees from those who could not
pay, "whatever their religion."
His patients included many
Shi'ites in Beirut and in the
villages of the south. His
neighbors, she writes, all "could
bear witness that he was totally
apolitical for the simple reason
that his profession had shaped his
entire life." (In fact, one of his pa-
tients was the son of a prominent
PLO leader.)
The Organization of the Op-
pressed has stated that it is still
holding the following persons:
Isaac Sasson, 66, the President of
the Lebanese Jewish community,
who was kidnapped on March 31,
1985 on his way from the airport
in West Beirut on his return from
a business trip for the phar-
maceutical firm he directed, and
Yehuda Benesti, whose two sons
were among those murdered by
the group. It is generally believed
that the group may also be holding
Salim Jammous, 56, the
secretary-general of the Lebanese
Jewish community, who was ab-

West Beirut on Aug. 15, 1984.

The formation of a worldwide
organization under the name of
"the Party of the Oppressed" was
suggested by Ayatollah Khomeini
during a meeting with the Syrian
Foreign Minister on Aug. 16,
1979, in which Khomeini declared
it to be "the same as the 'Party of
God' (Hezbullah)." At a memorial
meeting in New York on Jan. 8,
1986 on behalf of the first two
Jewish victims, the Rev. Joseph
O'hare, SJ, President of Fordham
University, poignantly declared:
"It is once again a cruel irony that
the murderers of Haim Cohen and
Isaac Tarrab should dare to call
themselves representatives of the
oppressed of the world. No
greater human oppression is
possible than the reduction of in-
dividual human beings to
nameless symbols whose lives are
snuffed out in some sterile
political gesture."
From Rome, New Views On Old Issues
Friday, February 20,1987
Volume 9
21SHEVAT5747
Number 4
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This article
is based on a report written by
Rabbi Leon Klenicki, director of
the Interfaith Affairs Department
of the Anti-Defamation League's
Intergroup Relations Division.)
"The world continues to be
beset with acts of terrorism and
Your Holiness knows the ravages
only too well. Perhaps what is
needed ... is a day in which we
contemplate the evil of terrorism,
and as the site of such prayers ...
where more appropriate than in
the City of Peace, Jerusalem? And
personally led by whom, more ap-
propriately, than by your pro-
phetic voice of peace."
The invitation was extended to
Pope John Paul II by Nathan
Perlmutter, national director of
the Anti-Defamation League, as
part of his remarks at a private
audience with the Pontiff for par-
ticipants in the Second Interna-
tional Catholic-Jewish Collo-
quium, sponsored by ADL and
four Vatican institutions. The Col-
loquium was held at the Domus
Marine Conference Center in
Rome.
The complete text of Mr.
Perlmutter's remarks and the
Pope's greetings to the ADL
delegation were reprinted on the
front page of L'Osservatore
Romano, the official Vatican
newspaper. The invitation to the
Pope to go to Jerusalem also
received widespread media
coverage in the New York Times,
the Los Angeles Times and other
newspapers here and abroad.
Dr. Ronald B. Sobel, chairman
of ADL's National Executive
Committee and senior rabbi of
Temple Emanu-El in New York,
headed the delegation and
presented the Pope with a gift
from ADL, an inscribed sterling
silver box with a scene of the Old
City of Jerusalem in baa relief on
the lid. Rabbi Sobel told the Pope:
"Jerusalem and Rome: just as
the prayers of the two cities rise
vertically to God, so must the two
cities reach out horizontally to em-
brace each other in fullness of
love. In that act of love would we
find a redemption and salvation."
The theme of the Colloquium
itself was "Salvation and
Redemption in Judaism and
Catholicism," issues which for
centuries have been the cause of
confrontation with and persecu-
tion of Jews. Academics and
theologians of both faiths par-
ticipated in the discussions.
The sponsors, in addition to
ADL, were the Holy See Commis-
sion for Religious Relations with
Judaism, the School of Theology
of St. Thomas Pontifical Universi-
ty, Centro Pro Unione-Friars ol
the Atonement, and SIDIC
(Sisters of Zion, International
Jewish-Christian Documentation
Service). About 70 Italian, West
German, Israeli and American
academicians and theologians at-
tended. The three branches ol
Judaism Orthodox, Conser-
vative and Reform were
represented.
"It was ironic," noted Rabbi
Leon Klenicki, director of the In-
terfaith Affairs Department of
ADL's Intergroup Relations Divi-
sion, and one of the speakers,
"that a Dominican university
should be involved in the project.
Centuries ago, the Dominican
Fathers initiated forced confron-
tations with Jews."
Rabbi Klenicki went on to say:
"It is a sign of a new age when the
major center of Catholic in-
telligence and scholarship, St.
Thomas University, cooperates
with a Jewish organization in a
friendly academic colloquium."
The theme, "Salvation and
Redemption," was discussed in
papers presenting the traditional
Jewish and Catholic points of
view. The lecturers made
reference to the impact of the
Holocaust, the creation of the
State of Israel and the effect of
Vatican II and the Nostra Aetate
declaration upon Jews and
Catholics.
Special attention was given to
the "theology of liberation" in the
Third World, a recent develop-
ment within Catholic theological
thought which has crystalized
amidst the poverty and spirit of
revolution in much of Latin
America. This left-wing Chris-
tians for Socialism movement
started in Chile in the 1970s and
spread to other countries on the
continent as well as to Europe.
It was noted that much libera-
tion theology writings dwell on
the Biblical Exodus while ignoring
the rest of the Jewish experience:
the giving of the Torah on Mount
Sinai, the return to the Promised
Land, the Holocaust and the
present-day State of Israel.
Three main points emerged
from the papers and discussion: a
deepening sense of common
Biblical roots, a joint evaluation of
both positive and negative aspects
of liberation theology and recogni-
tion of the importance of the State
of Israel to Jewish life and
Judaism. One of the Catholic
speakers said that establishment
of Vatican diplomatic relations
with Israel is central to the pro-
cess of Christian understanding of
Judaism.
At a special session during the
Colloquium, the group honored
Dr. Joseph Lichten, who recently
retired as ADL's representative
in Rome, on the occasion of his in-
duction and investiture as Knight
Commander of the Pontifical
Equestrian Order of St. Gregory
the Great, only the second Jew to
be so honored. The papal recogni-
tion cited Dr. Lichten's "unique
contribution to interfaith rela-
tions" as ADL's spokesman on
Catholic-Jewish relations in the
United States, at the Vatican II
Council and as the agency's
representative in Rome.
Before returning home, the
ADL delegation went to Assisi,
where they met with the Abbess
of the Order of the Sisters of
Clarissa who, during the Nazi oc-
cupation, had provided sanctuary
in their convent for 800 Jews
among them the parents of Euro-
pean ADL leader Daniel Kropf.
The Abbess, who is now 94 years
old, saw the delegation from
behind the bars of the convent's
traditional cloistered atmosphere.
In response to ADL's expressions
of appreciation, she replied that
she had done "so little," that
there was "so much more to be
done."

High School Students Invited to Summer Science
Program at Israel's Weizmann Institute
Jewish Children's Service
Interest Free Educational Loans
A talent search is now under
way sponsored by the Weizmann
Institute of Science in Israel to
find 20 graduating high school
students in the United States who
show exceptional promise in the
sciences.
Those selected will be invited to
join an international group of 76
science-oriented students who will
attend the 19th Dr. Bessie F.
Lawrence Summer Science In-
stitute from July 6 to Aug. 6 at the
Weizmann Institute in Rehovot,
14 miles southeast of Tel Aviv.
Students chosen to participate
in the month-long program will
work closely with scientists and
researchers at the Weizmann In-
stitute in a laboratory environ-
ment. A field trip to the Negev
Desert is also part of the summer
project together with journeys to
Jerusalem and the Galilee.
"Student registration in the
United States is progressing
quickly, but a few positions are
still open for superior science-
oriented students who will be
graduating this June,' said Ber-
nard N. Samers, Executive Vice
President of the American Com-
mittee for the Weizmann Institute
of Science.
High Priest
Buried
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Yaacov Ben Uzi HaCohen, the
High Priest of the Samaritan com-
munity, was buried on Mt.
Gerizim in Nablus Monday (Jan.
26). He died at the age of 87.
Almost the entire Samaritan com-
munity of 528 attended the
funeral, along with HaCohen's
many Jewish and Arab friends.
"Merit-based scholarships,
some worth up to $2,500 including
transportation, are available for
teenagers of the Westinghouse
Science Talent Search Competi-
tion and similar caliber," added
Mr. Samers. "No outstanding stu-
dent will be denied access because
of financial need."
Last summer, some 79 students
from throughout the world came
to the Weizmann Institute for
study. One was a 17-year-old
Miami student, Wendy Kay
Chung, a graduate of Killian High
School and a Westinghouse Prize
Winner, who worked with Weiz-
mann scientists on the chemical
dopamime, the neurological con-
nector between neurons and the
brain.
The Weizmann Institute of
Science, now in its 52nd year, is
ranked among the world's
foremost centers devoted to
research and teaching in the
natural sciences. The Institute has
made major contributions in the
studies of cancer, multiple
sclerosis, children's diseases, ag-
ing, energy and industrial
research, to name a few.
The International Summer
Science Institute is named in
honor of Dr. Bessie F. Lawrence
who has endowed the program in
perpetuity. Dr. Lawrence, a
teacher, principal, District Super-
visor and Deputy Superintendent
with the Chicago public school
system for 40 years, resides in
Pompano Beach part of the year.
The deadline for applications for
this summer's Science Institute is
March 1. Applications and further

played by Damian Josefsberg. The children
are students at Hillel School of Tampa. (Pic-
tured right) Our young heroine, Jocelyn
Lewis, and her mother, Rachel Shalett, and
her father, Ted Nathan, make plans to
welcome their new friend, The Reluctant
Dragon.
Creativity At The Hillel School
Fourth and fifth grade
language arts students at the
Hillel School of Tampa have been
very busy lately. Both classes
presented special programs to
parents and fellow students. The
fourth grade's project was called
"Dinosaur Days' while the fifth
grade play was called "The Reluc-
tant Dragon." Mrs. Jewell
Knotts, their teacher, was very
proud of both her classes, "Both
classes completed their work in
less than two weeks time. I am
always amazed that the children
of Hillel can handle so much work
so smoothly and quickly, yet have
such a good time doing it! They
are a special school of kids!"
For "Dinosaur Days' each stu-
dent in the fourth grade research-
ed a dinosaur. From this research,
each presented a report, wrote
and memorized a poem and also
created a costume to represent his
or her dinosaur. Sara Ewen's
dinosaur, "Terry" the Pterodac-
tyl, led everyone through the pro-
gram, introducing visitors to all of
her friends: Ethan Kreitzer as
Brontosaurus; Janna Davidson as
Stegosaurus: Katie Sultenfuss as
Ankylosaurus; Heidi Roth as
Korosaurus; Noelle Wolfe-Berger
as Triceratops; and Brian Lancz
as the King of all dinosaurs,
Tyrannosaurus Rex. Then each
dinosaur gave away miniature
dinosaurs to all visitors to remind
them of their visit back millions of
years ago to "Dinosaur Days."
This is the fourth year the fifth
grade has put on the play "The
Reluctant Dragon" but the first
year they not only performed for
their parents and fellow students
but also entertained friends at the
Towers! This year's group created
a wonderful dragon, complete
with a startling head and usable
paws! The dragn, who was in-
troduced to his public by our
newest member of the fifth grade,
Leslie Frank, was made up of four
students: liana Berger played the
head; Shira Doron and Sarah
Davis-Zolinsky were the paws;
and Sam Linsky was the tail. Our
reluctant dragon, who was really
a very nice dragon, was forced in-
to fighting the famous St. George
as portrayed by Damian
Josefsberg. St. George and his
young friend, played by Jocelyn
Lewis, came up with a plan that
would keep the dragon safe and
prove to the villagers, played by
Rachel Shalett, Seth Craig and
Ted Nathan, that someone, even a
dragon, may appear to be bad on
the outside, but when you bother
to look inside, you may find he is
very nice. So, as happens each
year, there is a very happy ending
to the tale of "The Reluctant
Dragon"!
If you are ever visting the Hillel
School of Tampa, you just never
know what might come popping
out of a classroom to visit you .
it could be a dinosaur or even a
dragon!
Menorah Manor Welcomes New
Menorah Manor's new addition
to the activity department is Wen-
dy Gold, an activity therapist who
left her home of Rochester, NY
for the sunny climes of St.
Petersburg.
Ms. Gold, 23, began work at
Menorah Manor in December.
Working with the elderly is a new
experience for Ms. Gold, who
earned a bachelor's degree in
pediatric psychology at Syracuse
University, and was awarded an
internship in the same field at
Yale University. Before leaving
New York, Ms. Gold worked in
departmental psychology at a
hospital, dealing with physically ill
children, preparing them for the
hospital stay, sensitizing the staff
to psychological implications a
prolonged illness has on young
patients.
"I've gone the whole span, from
pediatrics to geriatrics," Ms. Gold
said. "The elderly have some of
the same needs as pediatric
patients."
She said lending support and
understanding helps the transi-
tion to a new life stage and living
environment. Maintaining active
minds and offering dignity and
respect are also key elements in a
private home atmosphere.
Ms. Gold also said she has
discovered that the elderly have a
lot to offer people, and that it is
important that they understand
that.
Therapist
"There is a lot to learn from this
age group," she said. "They have
a lot to share. The whole idea is to
help them continue with their nor-
mal life, doing things that are pur-
poseful and to let them know that
people need them."
The challenging part of her new
job, Ms. Gold said, is bringing out
the more reticent patients, involv-
ing them in activities and getting
them sensitized to their environ-
ment. "They are the ones that
really need it," she said.
Ms. Gold said she is impressed
with Menorah Manor and the com-
munity support it receives.
"Everyone works together as a
unit," she said. "They donate not
only their money but their time.
"They talk about the Menorah
Manor Family, and it really is that
a family," she said. "It's like
having 120 grandparents "
Grandmother Rockettes Kick Up
Their Heels For Menorah Manor
Residents
, The Grandmother Rockettes
tapped their way to center stage
last month in Menorah Manor's
dining room, wowing the audience
with their high-stepping kicks and
quick-spinning twirls.
The only difference between the
Grandmother Rockettes and the
ones from New York's Radio City
Music Hall is a "few years." The
eight-member dance troupe has a
combined age of 467 years. Still,
their enthusiasm was infectious
and their energy envied.
Four members of the Largo-
based dance group appeared at
the Home and presented an ex-
citing show of tap and jazz
numbers. Beginning with a
Charleston routine, the group
soon had the Residents clapping
and moving to the music.
Other routines the Grand-
mother Rockettes performed in-
cluded a quick jazz number entitl-
ed "One" from the Broadway
musical A Chorus Line, and a
rousing rendition of "Yankee
Doodle Dandee," complete with
red, white and blue outfits.
As the smiling, limber Rocket-
tes changed costumes for the next
dance, the Residents sang to the
piano favorites like "Daisy," and
"Let Me Call You Sweetheart."
The Grandmother Rockettes,
who range in age from 55 to 68,
came together four years ago
through a mutual desire to dance.
Now the group is booked for mon-
ths with commitments to perform
at local social and civic functions.
Goodbye, Old
Friend Council
Closet Close
Institutions like people seem to
have a life of their own. There is
the proud and hopeful birthing,
the organizing of the project, the
daily joys and sorrows of its
maintenance, and finally its sad
demise softened by the flood of
memories of its accomplishments
and of those who served to make
them happen.
So it is with the Council Closet.
On Jan. 22 the Closet doors were
shut permanently with a proud
bang not a whimper. For 53
years this institution provided the
funds that the National Council
Jewish Women, Tampa Section,
required to meet its local and its
national financial obligations. And
even at the very end NCJW
members and friends contributed
sufficient merchandise so as to
garner enough income from its
closing out sale to be able to cover
our financial needs through
1986-87.
This small but valient enterprise
is the reflection of a group of
valient volunteers. In 1938, dur-
ing Mrs. Joseph Wohl's ad-
ministration, Mrs. Wohl and Mrs.
Joseph Waterman organized the
original store known as the Coun-
cil Thrift Shop which name was
changed to The Closet in 1983.
From the beginning Clara Wohl
contacted merchants who did res-
pond generously donating good,
new merchandise for the store.
Sara Juster followed up diligently
with grateful thank-you notes.
One person, Cecile Liebman, was
hired to work in the store in
September of that year, 1938. She
earned the grand sum of $25 per
month.
Many dedicated volunteers
throughout the years gave
graciously of themselves and in so
doing developed a shared and en-
during comraderie. Among these
was Charlette Haliczer, who
managed the store for many years
while her husband, Sol, sorted and
mended the men's suits which
were donated. Another beautiful
volunteer was Gretchen Kotler
who for years took charge of the
daily receipts with which she ran
to the bank so often as to belie her
advancing age.
In 1969 Lois Tannen became
Chairman of the Thrift Shop. She
held this position until 1983 when
Doris Rosenblatt and Connie
Rosenberg Leamond took over.
Those who have been working
most actively with them are: Stef-
fi Gimpel, Lee Kessler, Dorothy
Greenberg, Sylvia Lander, Frieda
Rosenblatt, Rebecca Stanfield,
Lois Tannen, and Esther Weiss.
Throughout the years merchan-
dise, particularly clothing, that
did not move quickly, was donated
to those who could not pay. This
policy was practiced to the end
when all of the merchandise that
remained after the sale was
distributed among the Migrant
Farm Workers in Ruskin, the
MacDonald Training Center, The
Metropolitan Ministries, and The
Spring.
And even as Spring follows
Winter, a new fund raising project
must be created now so that the
work of Council continues. To this
end we urge all members and
friends to give this some thought.
All ideas are eagerly sought and
welcome. When that bright idea
strikes pick up your phone and
dial Herta Pila, 251-2081.

Federation, made 106 charitable
distributions in their last fiscal
year (July 1, 1985 to June 30,
1986) totaling $441,465.10.
"So many people ask me where
the money from our Foundation
goes," said Mark Glickman,
TOP's executfve director. "We
decided to compile a list of every
gift from last year. It is important
for every Federation member to
understand how our Foundation
works."
Each gift is made upon the
recommendation of one of TOP's
donors, and must be approved by
the five trustees from the reci-
pient community.
The trustees from Tampa are
Leslie J. Barnett, William Kalian,
George Karpay, Erwin I. Katz,
and Blossom Leibowitz.
During the past year, July
1-June 80, the following 10
organizations received $16,899.95
total charitable disbursement
form TOP. Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion, $10,000; Jewish National
Fund, $5,000; Tampa Jewish
Family Service, $600; Leadership

Israel, $200; Simon Weisenthal,
$100; American Friends Amal,
$100; Anti-Defamation League,
$100; and the National Institute
for Jewish Hospice.
The Jewish Community Center recently established two new TOP
Endowment funds. Jerilyn and Stuart Goldsmith, winners of the
Israel Fly-Away, donated their winnings to establish the Jerilyn
and Stuart Goldsmith JCC Camp Scholarship Fund. Making the
presentation were Jerilyn Goldsmith, Erwin Katz, Lee Tobin,
and Dr. Stuart Goldsmith.

Sentencing of Pollard, Wife
Postponed Until March 4
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
Sentencing of Jonathan
Pollard, a former U.S. Navy
civilian intelligence analyst
who has pleaded guilty to
spying for Israel, which was
to have taken place last
week (Feb. 10) has been
postponed until Mar. 4.
The delay was at the request of
the lawyers for Pollard, who could
be sentenced to a maximum of life
imprisonment. Also to be sentenc-
ed is his wife, Anne Henderson
Pollard, who has pleaded guilty to
conspiring to receive embezzled
government property and faces
up to 10 years in prison.
BOTH POLLARDS entered
their pleas last June before Chief
Judge Aubrey Robinson Jr. of the
United States District Court for
the District of Columbia. Pollard
has been in federal prison in
Petersburg, Va., while his wife
has been free on bail.
While Pollard has admitted to
receiving $2,500 a month for his
espionage activities, he has main-
tained in interviews and a letter to
a Boston doctor that he is a "loyal
son" of Israel and acted when he
discovered that a "new genera-
tion of ultra-sophisticated military
equipment" was going to the Arab
countries without Israel being told
about this new danger in its
security.
Meanwhile, it was reported thai
the Justice Department may move
against four Israelis implicated in
the Pollard espionage case which
Israel has officially called a
"renegade" operation.

Nobody Rings a Bell When it's time
to Sell!
By MINDY KLEIN
"Nobody ringB a bell when it's
time to sell!" so goes the old say-
ing about selling stocks. And it's
true.
"Buy" recommendations and
ideas are a different story. They
literally litter the landscape. They
come from every quarter. More
than any investor wants or needs.
But tough, hard suggestions to
sell? Like almost never. In fact, in
the brokerage side of the invest-
ment business firm selling recom-
mendations are almost an en-
dangered species. And in their
'heyday' they never really
flourished.
What's the reason? Search us! It
might have something to do with
being negative about a security or
the market itself. That sort of flies
in the face of an industry that
prides itself on being optimistic.
But what's important is simply for
the individual investor to
remember that this condition ex-
ists. And to have enough plans,
ideas, and strategies to be able to
make up his own mind.
We'd like to help in this effort.
Starting right now.
There are probably five or six
good reasons to sell a common
stock. And eight or ten bad ones,
by the way. Let's concentrate on
the good reasons. Somebody else
can help you with the bad.
Let's recognize, first of all, that
only three things can happen to
the price of a stock: it can go up,
down or stand still.
If the stock stands still, or goes
down, that means you either
bought it at the wrong time or for
the wrong reasons, or both.
The remedy to such a dilemma is
simple. Don't wait too long (like
over a year), and don't sit still for
a prolonged price drop (after ten
percent or so).
But let's now assume your selec-
tion and timing were correct. And
the price of the stock moves in the
right direction up!
How long should you enjoy the
ride? What signals should you look
for to end it?
Rule Number 1 Over a period
of time the price of a share of
stock establishes a "normal" rela-
tionship to its earnings per share.
It's called a P/E ratio. Let's say a
P/E of ten is normal for an issue
and the ratio surges to 20. This
should be good reason to sell
unless an unusual earnings gain is
in store. When ratios move up
suddenly, they are often
Beate Klarsfeld To
Speak March 24 at
Luncheon
The Women's Division of the
Tampa Jewish Federation will
sponsor a luncheon on Tuesday,
Mar. 24, 11 a.m. at the new Hyatt
Regency Westshore Hotel.
The guest speaker at this event
will be the courageous Nazi
hunter, Beate Klarsfeld, a non-
Jew married to a French Jew, who
has devoted her life to hunting
down Nazi war criminals.
Bobbe Karpay and Jolene Shor,
co-chairwomen of this event, ex-
pressed their excitement in being
able to bring Beate Klarsfeld to
Tampa. They ask that everyone
watch future editions of the
Jewish Floridian and their mail

Betar Winter Camp Big Success
And A Milestone For Betar
Activities In Tampa
\
Betar Winter Camp, which was
held during the last school's vaca-
tion indicates a milestone in Betar
Tampa activities.
"The way that the camp was
run, the unique program and the
methods that were used to imple-
ment the program, made our last
camp a big success," said Michael
Horwitze, the new Betar chair-
man. "I am 18 years old and I
grew up in Palm Harbour, Fla. In
the last eight years I was involved
in many Jewish youth groups, but
definitely the last Betar Camp
was something unique, and a very
enjoyable experience. I was struck
by the different way the camp
dealt with the topic of Jewish
heroes, and the way the program
was implemented, and the balance
of educational and social
activities."
"I am sure that the campers
have gained a lot of knowledge
while enjoying good activities.
Personally, the camp gave me a
great satisfaction, and I feel that
the Greater Tampa Bay area
needs this kind of program,"
Michael said.
"Betar is a Jewish Youth Move-
ment dedicated to caring for the
Jewish people and the state of
Israel," said Amos Doron, the
Betar Shahach.
"The concept of youth move-
ment is a movement geared to
serve the interest of young people
and it should be run by young peo-
ple," said Michael Horwitze. "All
the leaders and the counselors in
the movement are young and are
supervised and assisted by Amos
Doron, the Shaliach and our main
branch in New York."
Following the camp, Betar has
started a regular meeting every
first and 3rd Sunday of the month.
The meetings are open for boys
and girls ages 10-18 years old.
For more information about
Betar regular activities, as well as
Betar Summer Program please

vulnerable to reverse course, just
as suddenly. Prudence says, take
your profits and run.
Rule Number 2 If the com-
pany you bought because of its
consistent ability to grow sudden-
ly stops growing, or slows
significantly (sales and earnings
go flat), your reason for owning it
no longer exists.
Punt! Before it's too late.
So far, we've talked about
developments as they relate to the
individual security. Sometimes
bigger market forces are at work
and they can dictate selling deci-
sions that are even more
compelling.
Consider for example, an
economy that's throbbing along at
a very nice pace. And then out of
the blue it starts to slow down.
When that happens nearly all
stocks decline because the
possibility for poorer earnings is
an obvious prospect. No matter
how well your individual selec-
tions may be doing chances are
they will decline too, because the
collective attitude of investors
towards stocks becomes gloomy
(That's what bear markets are
made of.) Buyers stop buying.
Sellers start selling. Don't fijrht it.
It's bigger than you are. Look for
the nearest exit and don't be the
last one out.
Oftentimes a clue to an immi-
nent market decline can be rising
interest rates. When this occurs
(forget the reasons), it means
businessmen have to pay more for
the money they borrow (so they
borrow less) and fixed income in-
vestments (bonds and preferred
stocks) offer progressively higher
rates of return (so investors begin
to shift to them). Join the crowd.
And, like we said, don't be last!
Other helpful tools in determin-
ing when to sell can be charts.
Charts are the DEW (Distant Ear-
ly Warning) line of the investment
world. Price reversals become
graphically obvious on charts as
support levels and moving
averages are violated. They're
easy to read and understand. If
you're not familiar with them,
find someone who is. A 30-minute
lesson will make you an expert
and might save your investment
hide.
Another obvious reason to be a
seller of stocks is when your per-
sonal investment objectives
change. If you're going to retire
tomorrow (congratulations, by the
way!) you probably should
decrease your risk investments
(sell stocks! buy bonds!).
As a final (and hopefully,
forceful) selling guideline, may we
respectfully suggest that you
hitch your selling orientation
wagon to the most formidable fac-
tor of all: Inflation.
Remembering what happened
when inflation rates achieved
almost orbital velocity, it dawned
brilliantly on the investment
world that inflation's pace and
change of pace can move stocks up
and down with more force
(and violence to the unwary) than
almost all other factors put
together.
Accordingly, in the future when
inflation starts persistent and per-
nicious upticking, recognize that
the alarm bell you just heard is the
most insistent sell signal of all.
Drop whatever you're doing and
start moving out of the stock
marketplace with precipitate
haste, and then some.
When inflation accelerates in
the direction of double digits, you
should be outside looking in and
not the other way around. The on-
ly stocks that qualify for retention
at such a time are those that traf-
fic in natural resources (since they
aren't making any more). Golds
and silvers are good examples, but
there are others.
If you don't believe us, just go
back in to the archives of inflation
history and see for yourself. But
don't expect our company.

sultant for the investment firm of

The Jews of South Africa
Mervyn Smith is chairman of
M South African Jewish Board of
deputies Cape Council. This arti-
cle is excerpted from his address
lefore the Anti-Defamation
league's National Executive
Committee.
By MERVYN SMITH
After Crossroads, the terrible
ricident at the squatters camp
lutside of Capetown last May that
fcft 30 dead and 30,000 homeless,
[he Jewish community of
Capetown was supportive in a ma-
pr way. Some 200 refugees,
[romen and children, were housed
i a Reform temple. A campaign
used many thousands of rands
om the Jewish community to
elp support these people. The
ommunity took an activist stand.
Those actions were not surpris-
; since South African Jews have
en on the record calling for an
Ind to apartheid and the unjust
pws based on discrimination. But
he question is, as once asked by
Btalin of the Pope, "how many
livisions do you have?" There is
|nly the power of moral
ersuasion.
The South African Jewish com-
hunity numbers about 120,000,
he eighth largest Jewish com-
hunity in the world. In South
Ifrica, however, that's a
hiniscule figure because there are
pme 32.5 million people 25
billion black, 5 million white, and
he rest of mixed origin, or, col-
red, as they are called. The
pwish community is less than
he-half of one percent of the total
ppulation.
I Despite that, Jews have a very
Igh profile as a community of
thievers in the professions, in
bmmerce, business, art, sports,
t every endeavor of life,
lonetheless, the ability to in-
luence events especially
plitical is small.
[The community is overwhelm-
Igly Lithuanian in origin, very
aditional, mainly Orthodox, with
ut 15 to 20 percent Reform
lembership. There is no Conser-
f tive movement.

The South African Jewish com-
munity has not suffered the
ravages of assimilation and inter-
marriage as American Jewry has.
Very often, when there is inter-
marriage, the conversion is
toward Judaism.
South African Jews want to en-
courage capitalism. They want a
large middle class, including
wealthy blacks.
Black South Africans regard
South African Jews as part of the
white community, as capitalists,
and they connect them to an alleg-
ed "special" relationship between
Israel and South Africa.
Blacks in South Africa today are
overwhelmingly anti-capitalist.
Because they feel that they have
been exploited under capitalism,
they are anti-United States, anti-
imperialism and have fallen into
left wing groups.
Yet, black leaders are sup-
porters of Israel. They understand
that the state was born from a na-
tional liberation movement and
that it is the only democracy in the
Middle East. But Bishop Tutu, a
World Council of Churches man,
condemns Israel because of the
West Bank dispute and the ques-
tion of refugees.
On the left, the very large
Muslim community is anti-Zionist
and anti-Semitic. Articles in their
journals regularly deny the
Holocaust and use material
straight from the Palestine
Liberation Organization and
Libya's Khaddafi.
What is the reality of South
African Jewry? The Progressive
Federal Party it supports and
which stands in the forefront of
opposition to apartheid, has not
been in government for 58 years
and is not likely to be there, unfor-
tunately, for the next 58 years.
South Africa is not like Western
democracies where there is an ebb
and flow of Republicans and
Democrats and Tories and Labor
and Jews can be in all political par-
ties with access to government.
When South African Jews, a
minor part of the white popula-
tion, go to the government, it is
without political clout or in-
fluence. The Jewish community
observes the law; its members
don't march, don't throw stones
or bombs. Does that mean there is
no protest? No, they do protest
and criticize, but they are not
about to join the revolution nor be
part of the revolutionary process.
There is uncertainty in the
Jewish community, talk of
emigration ... in fact, more than
just talk. It is being referred to as
a community on the move. Where
is it moving to? South African
Jews have always had a strong
Zionist commitment. About
15,000 now live in Israel. Many
fought in the War of In-
dependence. Some 1,500 were
said to have fought in the Yom
Kippur War. A strong, binding
case is being carved for South
African Zionist emigration, but,
regretfully, the Zionist message is
not necessarily succeeding.
This is the moment critique for
the Zionist movement in South
Africa. Will South African Jewry
go to Israel? Will Zionist ideology
fail or succeed? When the history
of Zionism and its impact on
Western communities is written,
there will be a special chapter
about South Africa Jewry, a com-
munity that Israel leaned over
backwards to welcome. Israel has
appointed special prime
ministerial committees to make all
kinds of benefits available to
South African emigres.
Still, it is much easier for South
African Jews to relocate to a com-
munity similar to what they have
known, hence Australia and the
United States are popular. And,
many younger South African
Jews have become "yuppies."
They want material comforts. It is
difficult to sell them on a country
for its ideology. Even so, a large
number of South African Jews are
going to Israel.
South African Jews face the
same future and same fate as all
white South Africans. South
African Jews want change
meaningful change before it is
too late.

ferences that still exist between
the Church and the Jewish people.
I do not believe that the Cardinal
understands the Holocaust,
although I do believe that he feels
that the Holocaust caused horren-
dous destruction to the Jewish
people and to others who were
swept up in this greatest tragedy
of our century. The Cardinal does
not understand that Israel, grow-
ing out of the Holocaust, is for
Jews not only a political fact and
an historical reality, but also a
theological reaffirmation of the
linking in Jewish theology of God,
Israel and Torah, with Israel
meaning both land and people. We
were literally a "ghost nation"
after the Holocaust's massive an-
nihilation of sue million of our
brethren. Israel's reconstitution
was a result of more than political
machination on the part of the
super-powers and the Zionist
Movement. It was for many Jews,
especially the survivors, a reaffir-
mation of God's presence in
history. Israel has, for most Jews,
a profound theological connota-
tion. It implies that the Jewish
people is not dead but that Am
Yisrael Choi, the people of Israel
live. To understand that
theologically brings a direct head-
on clash with Catholic theology
which still anticipates the second
coming of the Messiah. Historical-
ly, Jews who refused to accept
Jesus as Messiah were punished
for that rejection and had to re-
main present to recognize the
Messiah on his second coming. In
contemporary Catholic theology,
the Church has replaced "the old
Israel" with itself as the true
witness to the Messiah; therefore
it is hardly possible for the
Vatican to recognize Israel for
what it is theologically, because
validation of Israel would in-
validate the Vatican's historic ex-
pectation. Those who invited Car-
dinal O'Connor should not have
expected the Cardinal to abandon
classic Catholic theology and em-
brace the Zionist Movement.
Israelis who fervently wish for
Vatican recognition beyond the de
facto recognition fail to realize
that it is an impossible response
within Catholic theological struc-
ture. Therefore, the rapproche-
ment evolved by Teddy Kollek
was brilliant. The office of Mayor
Kollek, visited by the Cardinal,
was determined to "be the ad-
ministrative rather than the
political center of Jerusalem. This
talmudic reasoning penned for
Catholic casuistic thinking is a
very fruitful avenue of explora-
tion until the theological moun-
tains separating Judaism and
Christianity are more easily
reconciled, perhaps at another
time.
Cardinal O'Connor's remarks
were made within the context of
his Catholic theology, of his own
notion of suffering, of his own
perception of the plight of the
Palestinians. For Jews, he spoke
unfamiliar words. His frame of
reference was unknown to them.
His observation about the need for
a Palestinian homeland was a
human reaction to the plight of
refugees. He did not place that
plight in its historic context, nor
did he elucidate the role of Arab
nations in maintaining refugee
camps for their political and pro-
paganda reasons. And, yet,
despite all of this, there is the
human element and it is that to
which we are all sensitive: those of
us who have been refugees, as I
have been, and those of us who
understand the complex struggle
that Israel engages in for its sur-
vival and continued existence. Did
the Cardinal commit a sin deserv-
ing the censure of the major
Jewish organizations? I think not.
Let us its down and reason
together. Let us try to understand
one another's hearts more com-
pletely. Let us strive for a new
beginning based upon mutual
understanding of that which
unites us and that which keeps
Judaism and Catholicism as
separate religious communities.

To Examine Personnel
Problems For Small Businesses
Last year, approximately
200,000 new businesses were
started in Florida, supporting the
employment of about 600,000
workers. The most important
resource for any venture but
especially a small one is its
employees. How you manage
them can make or break the
chances of success for your small
business.
The Small Business Develop-
ment Center will present "How to
Overcome the Most Common Peo-
ple Problems for Small
Businesses," an all-day program
designed to help current and pro-
spective entrepreneurs learn to
select, hire, pay, motivate and ap-
praise workers.
This comprehensive seminar
will be held Friday, Feb. 27, at the
Rusty Pelican Restaurant, 2425
Rocky Point Drive in Tampa (just

Israeli Children To Tour Florida For Benefit Of
Israel Tennis Centers
A group of tennis-playing
Israeli youngsters will be touring
Florida in March for the benefit of
the Israel Tennis Centers Associa-
tion, a non-profit organization
which provides free public tennis
facilities, instruction, clothing and
equipment for the children of
Israel.
The children of the Israel Tennis
Centers will play an exhibition
here in Tampa on Tuesday, March
10 at 7 p.m. at the Carrollwood
Golf and Tennis Club. The event is
being hosted by Sanford and Carol
Mahr, and Charles and Aida
Weissman. Hors d'oeuvres will be
served, and anyone interested in
attending is encouraged to do so.
After changing the quality of
life within the framework of a ten-
nis and sports concept for 80,000
youngsters over the past 10 years,
the Israel Tennis Centers Associa-
tion offers more than just tennis.
It is a remarkable project that
serves as a most successful effort
at linking Jewry all over the world
with Israel.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
On the evening of Tuesday, Feb.
3, at Eckerd College in St.
Petersburg, Elie Wiesel, a winner
of the Nobel Prize for Peace,
delivered a most enlightening, un-
forgettable, and mesmerizing lec-
ture entitled, "Building a Moral
Society." There was a standing-
room only crowd, a few of them
from Tampa.
Seven years ago, another Nobel
Prize winner, LB. Singer, gave a
lecture in Tampa. A small group
of people attended this lecture at
the Tampa Theatre. The Jewish
Floridian took no note of either of
these events. We continue to be
appalled at the Floridian inability
to serve the needs of this Jewish
community.

sidized in the short 10 years of its
existence religion or color has
no barrier. With tennis rackets in
hand, dressed in sneakers, shorts
or dresses provided free of charge
by the Israel Tennis centers, it is
not unusual to see Moslem playing
with Orthodox Jew or a newly
settled Ethiopian playing with a
Roman Catholic or Protestant
playing across the net from a
Reform Jew.
Yes, it is a mix and match
sociological dream built out of
the need to provide a respite for
Israeli youth from being forced to
live in fear of continuous war or
only to look forward to their com-
pulsory military service.
All the Centers are build with
Canadian, French, English, South
African and American voluntary
contributions; and they are not
subsidized in any way (except
grant of land) by the Israeli
government.
In its brief years of existence,
80,000 children have gone
through its program. By pro-
viding paraplegic wheelchair ten-
nis, a program for deaf children,
high school dropouts, drug users
and delinquents, juvenile crime
has dropped as much as 50 per-
cent in the low income areas
where all the centers are
constructed.
In order to build a new genera-
tion through sports in Israel, the
Israel Tennis Centers organize ex-
hibition tours that not only raise
funds, but illustrate what their
young children have learned.
The children of the Israel Ten-
nis Centers will be in Tampa on
Tuesday, March 10 at 7 p.m.
Come see them, they will thrill
you with not only what they have
accomplished, but how they have
been taught to conduct
themselves. It has been labeled
Israeli's "outstanding sociological
project."

BUSINESS COMMUNICATOR
"GOES PUBLIC"
After 20 years of writing,
speaking, doing research, and pro-
ducing training programs for
organizations as an employee,
Donna Davis has opened her own
business. "It's my version of 'go-
ing public,' she says.
The business, simply named
DONNA DAVIS, is located in
Tampa at 3304 Walleraft
Aveaae, phone 831-1036.
As a "hired pen", Davis will
write or edit brochures, reports,
public relations materials,
speeches, manuals, grant pro-
posals, resumes, and do technical
writing (make complex informa-
tion clear and understandable for
the lay person). Individualized
research for clients and training
programs on a wide variety of sub-
jects including: marketing, the
older consumer, career develop-
ment for outplacing, and ad-
ministrative law, are also
available.
Says Davis, "Most businesses
have staff who can and do per-
form almost any task needed. But
sometimes their priority lists may
be jammed with a lot of "A" items
and writing (or research or train-
ing) may be one of those. By call-
ing in a 'hired pen' the organiza-
tion only pays for products it
needs, when it needs them."
Jewish Floridian readers may
recognize Donna Davis as the JCC

1979-1984.

Ask Your
Congressman .

Friday, February 20, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 13
Again, this year, Congress will
ss hundreds of bills and resolu-
Dns. Part of the challenge of
^presenting an area as diverse as
urs is knowing how the voters
about each issue. Over the
ears I have learned that one of
he best ways to listen to my con-
diments is through the mail.
I sometimes receive thousands
If pieces of mail on a single sub-
feet. Usually mail in such massive
uantities is at least in part
he result of national campaigns
hat ask you the voters to send
legislators a postcard or form Jet-
er that they provide. While mail
enerated by these groups can
provide useful feedback, I believe
much more reliable measure of
kublic opinion can be found in the
Amount of "personalized mail" I
ceive. By "personalized mail," I
nean letters that someone has
ken the time to write using their
[vm words not form letters or
astcard campaigns. Such per-
:>nal expression shows much
nore depth of feeling than pre-
printed messages ever can.
Personal feelings about an issue
Expressed in a clear and concise
vay can make a difference. I can
ssure you that on several occa-
sions a single thoughtful and fac-
tual letter has changed my mind
Ir at least caused me to reex-
kmine my view on a particular
[ubject.
I appreciate all the mail I
eceive and would offer these sug-
gestions to help make your letters
|iven more effective when writing
i me or any other elected official:
Address the letter properly. A
[esident of the Seventh Congres-
sional District may address a
etter:
Congressman Sam Gibbons
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515
To write to one of our Senators,
ddress letters to Senator Lawton
thiles or Senator Bob Graham as
follows:
Senator (full name)
U.S. Senate
Washington, D.C. 20510
Identify the bill or issue you
e writing about. Give the bill
umber if you know it and
escribe the bill by a popular title
clean water, education, star
vars, etc.) at the beginning of the
letter. Iry to avoid making your
letter an outline of your entire
legislative agenda. It is always
easier to deal with one or two
issues at a time.
The letter should be timely if
possible. While I realize that it
may not always be possible for you
to write to me before Congress ad-
dresses an issue of concern to you,
your letters can have a bigger im-
pact if they reach me before a vote
is called.
Concentrate on your own
delegation. The representative of
your District and the Senators of
your State cast your votes in the
Congress and want to know your
views, but there is a "congres-
sional courtesy" procedure which
provides that all letters written by
residents of my District to other
Members of Congress will simply
be referred to me for reply, and
vice versa.
Be reasonably brief. I
recognize that many issues are
complex, but your opinions and
arguments stand a better chance
of being read carefully if they are
stated as concisely as the subject
matter will permit. It is not
necessary that the letters be
typed only that the text and
your signature be legible. Occa-
sionally, I am unable to respond to
someone who writes to me
because I cannot decipher the
handwriting.
Whatever form you legislative
letter takes I will welcome it.
Together we can work to make
this year in Congress one of the
most responsive to the needs of
the people here and throughout
the country.
It's Not Too Late For 1986 IRA
Contributions
Dear Congressman Gibbons:
I am very disappointed that the
President and Congress have seen
fit to restrict the use of Individual
Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
under the rules of the new tax bill.
Like many Americans I have been
contributing my year-end savings
to my IRA for several years as a
way of planning for my future and
reducing my taxable income, but
now because my wife has a pension
program where she works, I am
told I can no longer deduct my an-
nual IRA contributions from my

income tax. .
Sincerely, MA. A.
Dear M.A.A.:
I, too, was disappointed that the
new tax bill restricted the use of
IRAs for many Americans.
Although I supported the new tax
bill overall, I opposed the changes
to Individual Retirement
Accounts.
You should know, however, that
if you have not already made a
contribution to your IRA for 1986,
you still have until April 15, 1987,
to make that contribution under
the old rules. For the last time
barring a possible reversal by the
new Congress a wage earner
may make a $2,000 tax deductible
contribution ($4,000 for a working
couple and $2,250 for a taxpayer
with a non-employed spouse) to
an IRA regardless of whether he
or she is covered by another pen-
sion plan.
In the future, only people with
incomes below a certain level, or
those who are not covered by an
employer-sponsored pension plan,
may contribute to a tax-deductible
IRA. (If one spouse is covered by a
plan, the other spouse is not eligi-
ble for a full tax deduction on a
joint tax return.)
Single people with adjusted
gross incomes (AGI does not in-
clude deductions such as mor-
tgage interest) of $35,000 or more
will not be eligible for any deduc-
tion for an IRA contribution. Mar-
ried couples will not be eligible it
their adjusted gross income ex-
ceeds $50,000. Many other
Americans whose income falls
below these levels will only be able
to deduct a portion of their IRA
contribution from their income
taxes.
Most financial institutions will
be glad to help you determine
whether you should make a fully
or partially tax-deductible con-
tribution to an IRA for 1987.-
Reviewing your own personal
situation regarding an IRA is cer-
tainly worth the effort. I strongly
believe that IRAs are still the best
option when planning for your
future.
It is never too early to begin
saving for your retirement, and
IRAs still allow you to defer the
interest and earnings that ac-
cumulate on your contributions
until retirement or until you reach
age 59%.
I plan to work hard to improve
the laws affecting Individual
retirement Accounts and other
retirement plans because I believe
that Americans need to save more
money and plan ahead for their
retirement.

Nazi Hunter, John
Loftus To Speak At
Schaarai Zedek
On Friday evening, Feb. 27, im-
mediately following a brief
Sisterhood Sabbath Service at 8
p.m., Mr. John Loftus will speak
on "The Nazi Connection in
America."
Mr. Loftus is a former Trial At-
torney for the Justice Depart-
ment's Office of Special Investiga-
tions where he prosecuted Nazi
War Criminals and investigated
Nazi connections to U.S. In-
telligence. After leaving the
government in 1981, Mr. Loftus
wrote a history of the Nazi smug-
gling programs in America. After
his book, The Belarus Secret, was
declassified by the CIA, Mr. Lof-
tus appeared on a half-hour
special segment on "60 Minutes",
which won the Emmy Award. In
1985, CBS produced a movie of
the week entitled, The Belarus
File, based on Mr. Loftus' book.
Congressional Hearings arising
from allegations made by Mr. Lof-
tus were begun in October, 1985,
and resulted in the filing of House
Resolution No. 3814 to establish a
Congressional Commission to in-
vestigate Nazis in America. Mr.
Loftus has authored exposes on
Klaus Barbie, Kurt Waldheim, the
Vatican Connection, and helped
initiate Nazi investigations by the
governments of Canada and
Australia. In his spare time, Mr.
Loftus manages his own law firm
in Rockland, Mass.
Mr. Loftus is a graduate of
Boston Latin School and Boston
College.
John Loftus
In 1977, Mr. Loftus was invited
to join the Justice Department as
a member of the Attorney
General's Honors Program and
for two years worked on cases in
the Federal Appellate Courts and
in the Supreme Court of the
United States. After President
Carter created the office of
Special Investigations in 1979,
Mr. Loftus coordinated a Top
Secret investigation into Nazi
recruitment by U.S. Intelligence
agencies.
Saint Joseph's Hospital Needs
Cancer Screening Volunteers
Saint Joseph's Hospital is look-
ing for volunteers to help with a
community-wide colo-rectal
cancer screening program. Pro-
ject volunteers are needed during
February and March to help
record and process 75,000 cancer
tests.
The colo-rectal cancer screening
project is a cooperative effort bet-
ween Saint Joseph's, Eckerd
Drugs and WTSP-TV 10.
Free Hemoccult test kits are
available at Eckerd Drugs. After
preparing the test kits, individuals
mail completed tests to Saint
Joseph's for free analysis. Test
results will be mailed back to each
participant.
Colo-rectal cancer is the second
leading cause of cancer deaths in
America. And because it's nearly
painless in early stages, a screen-
ing test like the Hemoccult may be
the only alert that would signal
cancer or another bowel problem.
If cancer is diagnosed and treated
early, the cure rate is excellent
If you'd like to work on this life-
saving project, contact Genie
Kelley at 870-4188 or Sandy Mc-
Collum 870-4342.

WOMEN'S AMERICAN OUT
Gears Up For
Diamond Jubilee
After nearly six decades of
volunteerism, social activism, and
fundraising, Women's American
()KT may be the best kept secret
in the country, say its organiza-
tion leaders.
"It's not that people haven't
heard of us," explains Ruth Taf-
fel, vice president and chairman of
the recent 16th National Board
Conference in Atlanta. "We have
145,000 members around the
country. What we do find, is that
many people don't know the scope
of what we do."
The organization was founded
to support the ORT program of
vocational and technical training
overseas. Women's American
ORT is also actively involved in
such issues as the campaign on
l>ehalf of Soviet Jewry, the fight
for quality public education in the
United Staes, the fight to main-
tain church-state separation and
First Amendment rights, the'na-
tional literacy campaign, the farm
crisis, affirmative action legisla- .
tion. and the on-going fight i
against anti-Semitism.
Organization leaders at the con-
ference outlined a campaign
designed to heighten public
awareness of the group's ac-
tivities and support for its pro-
grams. It will be built around the
Women's American ORT 60th an-
niversary to be celebrated in 1987.
Plans include a national ad cam-
paign, special events, and com-
memorative materials.
ORT (Organization for
Rehabilitation Through Training)
was founded in 1880 in Russia, as
a self-help program to train Jews
"i agricultural, industrial, and
craft skills. Today, ORT is the
argest non-governmental
technical education system in the
world.
Women's American ORT is the
"argest of the ORT member
groups supporting its world-wide
network of schools. It also func-
tions as a grass-roots, activist
"rgamzation, advocating prin-
ciples of pluralism, democracy,
and individual liberties.

KOSHER WEEK
AT PUBLIX
The Mitzva of keeping Kosher
has always been at the essence of
Judaism. Kashrus distinguishes
the Jewish people from amongst
the nations of the world, as a na-
tion holy unto G-d. Even under
the crudest of conditions, and
through years of persecution,
Jews have gone to great lengths
to fulfill this special Mitzva. Today
keeping Kosher no longer
necessitates self-sacrifice or
inconvenience.
An effort is being made by
Chabad Lubavitch in concert with
the Publix in the Carrollwood
Village Center to promote and
make the public aware of the
great variety of Kosher products
that are available on a daily basis.
Kosher week at Publix will
begin on March 1, and continue
through March 6. There will be a
large kosher food display with
samples, kosher cookbooks,
literature on Kashrus, and Kosher
food pointers around the store.
Ready to Cooperate

sale, said that he is ready to cooperate with the U.S.
authorities investigating the affair.
ASKED BY an Israel Radio interviewer if he was
ready to give evidence to U.S. investigators, Kimche said,
"I am doing whatever the government of Israel asks me to
do. I shall certainly be very happy to cooperate. It is a
positive thing to cooperate."
