Bobbe Karpay and Jolene Shor,

that "when it was announced that
Beate Klarsfeld was going to be
the guest speaker, it generated so
much interest in the community,
that the decision was made to also
invite gentlemen to give them the
opportunity to hear this one-
woman crusader speak."
"Courage, Conviction, Decency,
Justice and Self-Sacrifice these
are words that come to mind when
one hears the name Beate
Klarsfeld .. To Israel and the
Jewish people Mrs. Klarsfeld is a
'Woman of Valor' a title that
has no peer in the Jewish tradi-
tion." Golda Meir

French Resistance and who died
Beate Klarsfeld
in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.
Vowing that she will not rest
until she has brought to justice the
murderers of millions of Jews,
Beate, with her husband, has com-
piled a list of several hundred
suspected Nazis who are still at
Beate Klarsfeld has dedicated
her life to the moral rehabilitation
of Germany and support of the
State of Israel. She is one of the

and was responsible for locating

Ethnicity And Survival Of The Family
Theme Of Susanne E.W. Brav Brunch
Following a Sunday morning
brunch on March 29, Tampa
Jewish Family Services will pre-
sent its second annual Susanne
E.W. Brav Family Life Education
program at the Tampa Airport
Marriott Hotel, states Audrey
Haubenstock, president of the
Tampa Jewish Family Services
Board of Directors.
Two nationally-known speakers,
Joseph Giordano and Irving M.
Levine, will address the topic:
"Roots, Identity, and Survival of
the Jewish Family."
Giordano and Levine together
are founders of the Institute on
Pluralism and Group Identity
which is located in New York.
This duo had addressed audiences
across the nation on the topic of
ethnicity and ethnic identity.
Many individuals who come from
traditional families into a larger
society encounter much stress in
terms of knowing and understan-
ding who they are. For genera-
tions, Jews have walked the line
between wanting to assimilate in-
to the world at large and wanting
to retain their roots and tradi-
tions. Mental health workers to-
day acknowledge the fact that em-
phasis must be placed not only on
the individual, but also on the
ethnic and cultural context with
which the individual identifies.
Mr. Giordano is currently the
Director of the American Jewish
Committee's Center on Ethnicity,
Behavior, and Communications.
In this position, Giordano is
responsible for creating programs
designed to stimulate awareness
of the relationship between
ethnicity and mental health. He
has served on many government
commissions and has published
numerous articles on mental
health and ethnicity which have
appeared both in journals and in
newspapers. He has appeared on
many radio and television talk
shows, including The Phil
Donahue Show.
Irving M. Levine has served
both as the Director of National
Affairs and as the Director of the
Institute for American Pluralism
for the American Jewish Commit-
tee. In addition to serving as a
consultant and trainer in a variety
of settings, including schools,
mental health centers, and
government agencies, Levine has
also published many articles deal-
ing with ethnicity and identity.
NBC's documentary entitled "the
Ethnic Factor" which was the
recipient of an Emmy Award
featured Levine as its narrator.
Levine has also lectured at
Hunter College, New York
University, and Columbia
Elaine Viders, the Brunch chair-
man, and Goldie Shear, the Sue
Brav Endowment Fund chairman,
have mailed invitations to the
greater Tampa Jewish communi-
ty. The cost for this program, in-
cluding the brunch, is $9 per per-
son. Checks may be made payable
to Tampa Jewish Family Services.
For additional information about
this event, call Karen Shilit, chair-
man of the Family Life Education
Committee at 251-0083.

Preparations For Israel's 39th
Independence Day Gala
Full Steam Ahead
"The way that the various
segments of the community
responded to the Israeli In-
dependence Gala Celebration last
year, the very positive feedback
that we received and the fact that
many members of the community
used this opportunity to show
their solidarity with the state of
Israel and its people, encourages
us, the members of the Israeli and
Shaliach Program committee to
put even more effort and energy
in this year's program," said Mrs.
Hannah Zohar, the chairman of
the committee.
The well-balanced combination
of short memorial ceremony for
the Israeli fallen soldiers and a
concert by an Israeli songstress
proved to be well accepted by the
"This year's program will be
even more attractive than the
previous one. That is due to the
fact that this time we will have a
rare opportunity to enjoy an even-
ing of song with Yaffa Yarkoni,
recognized by many Israelis as
their national singer," said Zohar.
The celebration will be held at
Congregation Rodeph Sholom,
Saturday evening, May 2 at 8:30
p.m. Tickets at $15 per person in-
clude hors d'oeuvres. Tickets will

Affirmative Action:
Answers And More Questions
Three major rulings handed
down by the U.S. Supreme Court
last term identify the Court's con-
cerns and offer limited approval
to race-preferential hiring and
promotions. Once again, the
Court leaves employers, the
government and civil rights ad-
vocates with unanswered ques-
tions regarding the legal limits of
affirmative action.
The three cases Wygant v.
Jackson Board of Education,
Local No. 93 International
Association of Firefighters v.
Cleveland and Local No. 8 Sheet
Metal Workers International
Association v. EEOC were
handed down late in the Court's
term and involved, respectively,
(1) public school layoffs, (2)
firefighter promotions and (3)
union admission. The differing
facts and employment settings in
the cases allowed the Court to
consider a variety of issues which
left little unanimity the three
decisions included a total of 17
separate opinions by concurring
and dissenting justices.
The Court struck down race-
preferential layoffs by a school
board (Wygant), upheld a union
admission goal i.e. quota (Sheet
Metal Workers), and recognized a
court's authority to approve
racially-based promotions
(Firefighters). The complexity of
the rulings is apparent when one
compares the cases more closely.
The Court clearly distinguished
between layoffs and other conse-
quences of affirmative action,
such as failure to be hired or
receive a promotion. In Wygant,
the school board had established
set percentages of minority facul-
ty. When forced to lay off
teachers because of financial pro-
blems, layoffs were ordered accor-
ding to race to maintain those
percentages. The Court
Then-Chief Justice Warren
Burger and Justices Lewis Powell
and William Rehnquist stressed
the burden and unfairness of
employement layoffs in ruling
that the school board acted un-
constitutionally when it laid off
teachers by race. Justice Powell,
author of the plurality opinion,
noted the serious financial and
psychological effects of layoffs.
The school board had argued that
maintaining a racially-balanced
faculty provided role models for
minority students, justifying
racially-based layoffs. Not only
did the Court reject the role model
argument, three Justices stated
that the layoff scheme "was not a
legally appropriate means of
achieving even a compelling
While adamant on this issue, the
Court appeared more concerned
with the intrusiveness of employ-
ment layoffs than with the racial
basis of the school board's
scheme. In fact, Justice Powell,
writing for the Court, expressly
distinguished layoffs from hiring
goals based on race, which he said
Jill L. Kahn is an assistant
director of the Legal Affairs
Department of the Anti-
Defamation League's Civil Rights
"simply do not impose the same
kind of injury that layoffs
This hint of approval in Wygant
for racial goals foreshadowed the
Court's decisions in Sheet Metal
Workers and Firefighters, less
than two months later. In-
terestingly, two Justices who join-
ed the Wygant opinion hinting at
acceptance of goals, Chief Justice
Burger and Justice Rehnquist,
refused to sanction the racial
quotas in the later cases. These
two Justices, along with Justice
Byron White, who joined the
plurality in striking down racial
layoffs in Wygant, were consis-
tent in voting against race
preference in all three cases.
The presence and degree of
prior discrimination by an
employer has emerged as a signifi-
cant factor in the Court's approval
of race-preferential affirmative
action. Virtually the entire Court
agrees that prior discrimination is
a necessary predicate for any type
of race-conscious affirmative ac-
tion. Yet there appears to be
significant differences in the
precise nature, degree and
evidence of past discrimination
necessary to sustain a plan. In
Wygant, the school board had
argued that its affirmative action
plan was an attempt to alleviate
the effects of prior general
societal discrimination. The Court
majority rejected this argument
as insufficient under the Four-
teenth Amendment to justify
racial classifications. Instead, the
Supreme Court said there must be
"some showing of prior
discrimination" by the govern-
ment employer (in this case the
school board). Justice Powell
found no evidence in the record of
prior discrimination by the school
board, which would have justified
a race-conscious remedy. Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor articulated
a more lenient standard. She
would require only that a public
employer have a "firm basis for
determining that affirmative ac-
tion is warranted," which could be
shown by a statistical disparity
between the work force and the
relevant labor pool. Although
there was some evidence ofsuch
disparity in Wygant, Justice
O'Connor voted with the majority
in striking down the school
board's action.
At the other extreme, in Metal
Workers, following 20 years of
litigation, the Supreme Court
upheld a contempt order against a
union, based in part on its failure
to achieve a minority admissions
quota. The history of persistent
and systematic discriminatory
recruitment, training and admis-
sion practices by the union was a
significant factor in the Court's
5-4 decision.

Thurgood Marshall, Harry A.
Blackmun and John Paul Stevens,
who joined in a plurality opinion,
focused on repeated instances of
the sheet metal union's "per-
vasive and egregious discrimina-
tion" and its "bad faith attempts
to prevent or delay affirmative ac-
tion." Justice Powell, who had
voted against the Wygant racial
layoffs, provided the fifth vote
sanctioning the court-ordered
union quota because of the union's
particularly egregious conduct.
The Firefighters case gave the
Court an opportunity to
distinguish between an
employer's voluntary affirmative
action efforts and court-ordered
relief. Voluntary, race-conscious
affirmative action by a private
employer was upheld in United
Steelworkers of America v. Weber.
The question in Firefighters was
whether a promotion quota in the
settlement agreement was volun-
tary or constituted a court order.
Prior litigation against the city's
Fire and Police Departments
established judicial findings of
discriminatory hiring. When the
Fire Department's promotion pro-
cedure was challenged as
discriminatory, the city settled
the litigation by agreeing to imple-
ment a minority promotion goal.
The firefighters' union objected to
the settlement agreement, but the
lower Federal court ordered it in-
stituted. Despite the facts, which
showed that the city agreed to the
quota in order to avoid litigation
and that the court, in approving
the settlement, ordered the quota
implemented, the Supreme Court
characterized the settlement as
voluntary action.
The significance of this
characterization is that the quota
was challenged under a provision
of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act
of 1964 which prescribes the
authority of a court to order relief.
Because the Supreme Court decid-
ed the quota was voluntarily im-
plemented, the challenge was re-
jected. The Court's narrow
holding in Firefighters is impor-
tant: the decision focuses only on
a lower court's authority to ap-
prove a settlement agreement,
rather than on the merits of the
promotion goal. In fact, Justice
Brennan, who wrote the plurality
opinion, stated clearly that the
racially-based promotion scheme
would still be subject to challenge
under the equal protection clause
and Title VII by nonminority
firefighters. In that case, in order
to justify race-preferential
employment decisions, the
employer would presumably have
to show the need for affirmative
action as a remedy for prior
What is clear from the Court's
decisions is that affirmative action
need not be limited only to iden-
tifiable victims of discrimination.
Class-based relief, in which
minorities enjoy the benefit of
preference without having to
show specific, individualized in-
jury, was upheld in Firefighters
and Sheet Metal Workers. In-
evitably, extending a benefit to
one group of individuals
minorities imposes some hard-
ship on another group non-
minorities. Rejecting the layoff
scheme in Wygant, the Court
drew a limit on the burden which
can be imposed on nonminorities
under an affirmative action plan.
But the validity of promotions by
race, a question the Court avoided
in Firefighters, remains
unanswered. The Wygant opinion
seems to indicate that hiring deci-
sions impose less of a burden on
non-minorities than layoffs. Pro-
motions would arguably fall closer
to hiring than layoffs. The Court
will face this question squarely
during the current term in
Johnson v. Santa Clara Transpor-
tation Agency.
The plurality opinion in Sheet
Metal Workers offered further
limits on class-based relief. In
upholding the union quota in that
case, the Court stated that such
relief is not always proper.
Specifically, the Court pointed out
"Congress' concern that race-
conscious affirmative measures
not be invoked simply to create a
racially-balanced work force."
However, Justices Brennan, Mar-
shall, Blackmun and Stevens
agreed that a court "may have to
resort to race-conscious affir-
mative action" if an employer
engages in "persistent or
egregious discrimination'' 0r tn
"dissipate the effects of pervagivp
Despite the multiple opinion rul-
ings, the Court's decisions settle a
part of the legal controversy over
affirmative action. The view that
affirmative action is essentially an
emphasis on remedy, rather than
individualized compensation, has
been accepted, quieting the
counter-argument that only
specific victims of discrimination
may receive redress. Lower
courts have increasingly followed
this principle in recent years, en-
dorsing temporary race-conscious
plans based on flexible numerical
oals. Endorsement by the
upreme Court provides further
security for axiministrators of
such plans as long as racial
preferences do not entirely
eliminate anyone's expectation of
employment (as in a layoff) and as
long as employers can show a suf-
ficiently reasonable basis for
remedial affirmative action.
The Court's decisions will also
encourage employers to settle
discrimination lawsuits by im-
plementing affirmative action
plans. This area of "voluntary"
action was emphatically endorsed
by the Court in Firefighters and
affords employers much broader
discretion in fashioning plans than
that accorded courts under Title
VII. The three decisions should
help clarify the limits of affir-
mative action under the Constitu-
tion and federal civil rights laws
and instruct employers and at-
torneys on how far and under
what circumstances race may be
used as a basis to hire, promote or
fire employees. Yet narrowly
focusing on these recent
guidelines and on the specific
features of quota plans, it is easy
to lose sight of the larsrer issue.
Public Invited To 'Sign-On'
The U.S. Constitution
The National Conference of
Christians and Jews (NCCJ),
Tampa Bay Chapter, is launching
a drive to get all citizens, adults
and children to Sign On the
United States Constitution.
Sept. 17 will be a significant day
in our nation's history. It marks
the 200th anniversary of the day
39 courageous people signed the
U.S. Constitution forming a bold,
new government. NCCJ is offer-
ing each man, woman and child
the opportunity to join those
original signers.
With the endorsement of the
Commission on the Bicentennial
of the U.S. Constitution, NCCJ
has provided enrichment
materials to public schools in
Hillsborough, Orange, Pinellas,
Polk and Sarasota Counties.
WCU also is encouraging com-
munity groups, schools, service
clubs, veterans groups and other
organizations to schedule pro-
grams to observe this milestone in
our history. NCCJ will provide
sign-on materials, give talks and
help organizations to conduct
their own "sign-on" ceremonies.
It is the hope of NCCJ national-
ly to collect millions of signatures
on the specially prepared Con-
stitution replicas. The signed
sheets will be presented at official
ceremonies in Philadelphia on
Sept. 17 and made part of the of-
ficial archives. Those who sign-on
will be able to take pride that they
are included when they watch the
activities on television.

groups who wish to conduct Sign

We Jews are a very unusual peo-
ple. We never want to forget what
our enemies tried to do to us; yet
at the same time, we never want
to let the darkness of that memory
overshadow the joyous realization
that despite all the persecution,
we have survived.
Traditionally, Sukkot, Peaach,
Yomim Norim (Rosh Hashonah
and Yom Kippur), have been our
most important holidays. But
looking back from the perspective
of 4,000 years of Jewish history,
one would have to conclude that it
is the Festival of Purim which
most captures the spirit of the
alternating helplessness and
hopefulness of our tumultuous
The story of Purim from the
Book of Esther is the story of our
people in almost every generation.
An anti-Semite like Haman
decides that we are a potential
threat to society because our
traditions are strange and dif-
ferent. Acting on that fear, he
calls for our destruction and gains
support from an acquiescent ruler
and an irrational populace. Ten-
sion mounts as our lives hang in
the balance. We plea with the
reigning powers to reconsider.
We send emissaries who have in-
fluence like Esther to intercede.
Then we sit and wait, hoping that
some unexpected turn of events
will once again miraculously avert
the fatal decree.
In life, this hoped for redemp-
tion is never certain. But through
the symbolism of the Book of
Esther, it is made to seem preor-
dained. For if centuries^ later,
Mordecai, the hereditary great
grandson of King Saul, could
defeat Haman, the direct descen-
dant of Agag, the Amalekite who
Saul had earlier defeated, then
surely we Jews could have the
faith that God would rescue us as
he did our ancestors in the past.
Purim, then, is the one day a
year that a Jew can laugh in the
face of anti-Semitism and rejoice
in the quirks of fate that have
enabled him to survive. It is the
one day a year that he can eat,
drink and be merry, secure in the

The Do's And Don'ts
Of Purim Celebrations
From Hebrew Union College
1. Make Purim a family celebra-
tion. Don't merely focus on the
juvenile aspects of the holiday. In-
stead, learning and study for
children and adults of all ages.
2. Don't treat Purim as if it is
simply a Jewish Halloween. Plan
Purim masquerade parties; en-
courage children to dress up like
the characters relevant to the
Purim story. Purim carnivals
should reflect festival themes, as
3. Teach songs whose implict
values we want to encourage.
Avoid songs that take human life
and religious freedom for granted.
4. Encourage the creation of
new family traditions for Purim
such as family debates on the
"latke vs. the hamantaschen."
5. Sponsor a contest for making
the most unusual groggers in your
synagogue. Include a fine art and
home-made category.
6. Reteach the story of Purim
for adults, making explicit all of
the underlying issues in the
festival. For example, Vashti
should be recognized as a hero for
not wanting to flaunt herself in
the presence of a drunken king
and his companion.
7. Have a hamantaschen baking
contest focusing on the frivolity
of the festival:
8. Make shelakmones (miahloach
manot) baskets for neighbors,
friends and family. Get everyone
at home to bake, fill the baskets
and deliver them. Be creative with
the baakets. Make them different
sizes and shapes.
9. Each year, try a new filling
for your hamantaschen maybe
chocolate chips or peanut butter
this year.
10. Give tzedakah to poor peo-
ple. Or, as a family, choose a par-
ticular charity and make a dona-
tion to it on Purim.
11. Plan a Purim Fair this year
with make it/do it booths for
masks, groggers, hamantaschen
and more.
12. Create a living megillah (ala
"living people" exhibits). Each
family would be responsible to
create a scene in the megillah.
IS. Point to the meaning of the
holiday that speaks to the contem-
porary world.
14. Develop a drama troupe to
tell the story that "tours the com-
munity" several weeks prior to
Purim. Libraries and community
centers are great places for
15. Bake a great hamantaschen
and have a community eat-in at a
local park.
16. Build a giant Haman pinata
that can be beaten and broken
during the reading of the
Interest Free Educational Loans
The Jewish Children's Service,
based in Atlanta, Georgia, is a
social service agency that pro-
vides interest free educational

Hillel Students Reading Torah
With Trope' Cantillations
Tradition attributes the
"Trope" (ta-amay ha-mikra) to
"laws from Sinai." Some say it is
the work or' Ezra, the Scribe after
the return from Babylonian exile.

The "Trope" shows various
emotions and points to the syllable
to be accentuated. There are some
places in the Torah that we find
the trope inverted, instead of plac-
ing the (note) trope above the
word where it normally belongs, it
is placed below. The purpose of
this deviation is to show a change,
something happening that is con-
trary to the normal. It may signify
surprise or even horror. For ex-
ample: "And wherefore doth the
Lord bring us unto this land to fall
by the sword? Our wives and our
children will be for prey, were it
not better for us to return to
Egypt?" (Numbers 14:3).
Under the word "better" (Tov)
the note "Gershayitn" which nor-
mally is always above a word is in
this verse placed below the word.
After the Israelites, in the
desert, heard the report of the
scouts that had been sent to spy
upon the inhabitants of Canaan,
(the promised land), they decided
that slavery in Egypt was much
better than to fight for freedom.

Ben Barnett, Dina Gefon, Leanna Bass, Kevin Mock, Liz
Schneider and Daniel Vermess.
The note (trope) "Gershayim"
(")was placed under the word tov
to show "horror."
In. Hillel School we teach trope,
starting with the third grade.
Every Monday and Thursday the
entire school assembles for the
morning services (shachrit). The
service is run in its entirety by the
students from the 2nd Grade
through 8th Grade.

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.

On these days the Torah service
is read each week by different
students, from various classes, at-
tended by their parents and
grandparents who come to hear
and "shep nachis."
The Torah ends with the word
"yisruel" the last letter of this
word being a "lamed." The Torah
begins with "beraishis" first let-
ter being a "bet." These two let-
ters form the word "lev," which
means "heart." To emphasize
that the beginning and the end of
Torah, of all knowledge must be
gained with the "lev" (heart). For
it is the symbol of heart, love,
mercy and consideration of others
that all knowledge has its bases.
This important lesson is taught to
all students who read Torah at
Hillel School of Tampa.
Planting Trees
At Hillel
Hillel students and teachers rolled
up their sleeves and acted like
true "Chaltuzim" as they planted
trees in celebration of Tu-Bishvat
on Feb. 13. Ten pine trees, one
Holly tree and one Water Oak
were added to the landscaping of
the Hillel building. In addition,
over 25 trees will be planted in
Israel on behalf of Hilell students,
through the Jewish National
Fund. A Tu-Bishvat Seder,
catered by the Parents' Associa-
tion ended the day on a festive
The planting was coordinated
by Priscilla Taylor, Ad-
ministrative Assistant and

'How To Raise A Street-Smart Child,' On HBO Mar. 8
How To Raise A Street-Smart
Child is a groundbreaking
documentary that offers parents,
for the first time, simple and
straightforward tips on how
children can better protect
themselves from potential
dangers in today's society. Using
a unique "how to" style that ex-
plains 10 direct ways to prevent
children from becoming an unfor-
tunate statistic, the exclusive
special debuts Sunday, March 8
(10-11 p.m. ET), on HBO. Hosted
and narrated by Emmy Award-
winning actor Daniel J. Travanti
("Hill Street Blues"), the ex-
clusive program is based on the
popular book of the same name by
author and educator Grace
"Replacing fear with power,
and helplessness with knowledge
is the objective of the program,
and HBO advises that very young
children watch it with a responsi-
ble family member present. Using
candid interviews with children
and law enforcemnt authorities.
How To Raise A Street-Smart
Child offers the following 10 sim-
ple, but crucial "street-smart
tips" that can save a child's life:
1) Make sure your child knows
how to dial "911" or "0" and ask
for help.
2) Make sure your child knows
his or her name, address and
phone number.
3) Make sure your child knows
exactly what a "stranger" is.
4) Make sure your child knows a
secret code word only you share.
5) Make sure you play "What
if?" games with your child.
6) Make sure your child does not
wear personalized clothing, which
would make him or her an easy
7th UJA National Super Sunday Raises
$25.4 Million In 87 Communities So Far
NEW YORK The United
Jewish Appeal's seventh annual
Super Sunday phonathon has rais-
ed a total of $25,411,841 from
161,746 gifts to the 1987
UJA/Federation Campaign in the
87 communities reporting to date,
according to Michael M. Adler of
Miami, UJA Super Sunday Na-
tional Chairman.
Sixty-three communities held
their events on Feb. 1, the na-
tional Super Sunday date; 45 of
them have reported that over
10,000 volunteers tallied $11.8
I million in pledges. Bergen County
(N.J.), Los Angeles and New York
City each raised more than $1
I million.
"These results are consistent
I with successes in the 41 com-
munities that held their
Iphonathons before the national
date," said Adler, a UJA National
[Vice Chairman. "Those com-
munities raised $13.6 million. The
I million-dollar communities includ-
led Boston, Chicago, MetroWest
l(N.J.), Philadelphia and
[Washington. Some 40 com-
Imunities Miami, Denver, Palm
iBeach, Pittsburgh, San Francisco,
Dallas and Cleveland among them
I- will hold their Super Sundays in
the weeks and months to come."
Adler attributed the early suc-
cesses of Super Sunday '87 to the
new "Donor Motivation-Based
Fund Raising" training program
for telephone solicitation, which
was recently introduced by UJA's
Developmental Services and New
Gifts Department and is now in
use in many communities.
It's dear," he said, "that with
this effective training program
working at the volunteer's side of
the phone call, and the growing
understanding at the donor's end
of how his or her increased pledge
meets Jewish needs everywhere
we're going to have one of the
most successful Super Sundays

7) Make sure your child knows
the difference between "good
touch" and "bad touch."
8) Make sure your child knows
how to say "no" to adults.
9) Make sure your child knows,
if lost, to look for a person in
uniform, such as a police officer or
bus driver.
10) Make sure your child knows
to trust his or her instincts, and
knows that if something
suspicious happens, he or she
should act on it ... run to a
crowded place and shout for help.
Although most parents teach
their children not to talk to
strangers, How To Raise A Street-
Smart Child proves that most
children think a stranger is so-
meone threatening or evil-
looking. Photographs are
displayed of "nice," normal-
looking people who are revealed
as convicted child molesters, and
Travanti urges parents to teach
children "that a stranger is
anyone they don't know ... no
matter how nice a stranger looks,
no matter how nice a stranger
acts, no matter what a stranger
says stay away." Also stressed
is that children should not give out
information to someone they don't
know, on the street or on the
The startling fact is that child
abusers often use psychological
pressure rather than physical
force, and that 70 percent of sex-
ually abused children are abused
by someone the child knows.
Detective Rick Papke, who has
been investigating child abuse and
molestation cases for the Los
Angeles Police Department's
Juvenile Division for 20 years,
claims during the special that,
"Child molesters are policemen
and firemen and teachers and
religious leaders and they come
from every walk of life."

Raise A Street-Smart Child ex-
plores how these criminals entrap
children. "It was like spinning a
spider web and before you know

Henry. "Most of my victims were
easy targets. If you re into it, real-
ly, and you want to pick up kids
off the streets, you pick one that's

they trusted me."
Are we scaring our children by

Children's Act of 1982, which led
to the creation of the National
Center for Missing and Exploited

April Is Tay-Sachs Prevention Month
Be Aware Be Tested
Tampa Section, National Coun-
cil of Jewish Women, will, as it
has done for the past nine years,
pay the costs for Tay-Sachs
genetic screening at the Universi-
ty of South Florida Medical School
or at Dr. Tedeaco's second office
adjacent to Humana Women's
Hospital. This service is open to
residents of Hillsborough County
and surrounding areas during the
month of April. The cost of the
test.done at other times, is $30
per person.
Tay-Sachs is a genetically in-
herited fatal disease which affects
young children by causing
destruction of the nervous
system. Infants with Tay-Sachs
look and behave normally at birth,
but at about six months of age,
muscular weakenas becomes evi-
dent. Physical and mental
deterioration follow rapidly.
Death usually occurs between the
ages of three and five years. The
defective gene which causes this
tragic chain of events is carried
primarily by individuals of Jewish
There is no longer need to suffer
the heartache of learning that a
beautiful, seemingly normal
healthy child is doomed to early
death. A simple blood test can in-
dicate if you are a carrier of Tay-
Sachs. Since 1978, more than 600
people have been tested in the
Tampa area. For most of them,
the test revealed the good news
that their babies would not be
born with Tay-Sachs. The others
were able to avail themselves of
counseling in regard to family
Referrals are made to the
genetic program by physicians

Salutes The Jewish Woman
In a world where women are
asserting their "equality" and the
Jewish mother is stereotyped The
Chabad Women's Organization is
reversing these impressions with
a series of events, scheduled
simultaneously throughout the
world called "The Week of the
Jewish Woman." From New York
to South Africa, these programs,
designed by women for Jewish
women everywhere announce,
"come celebrate being a Jewish
Throughout Jewish History,
there are numerous accounts of
how the insight, self-sacrifice, and
courage of Jewish women were
responsible for saving the Jewish
people. The best example of the
trust placed in the Jewish woman
is the commandment to Moses to
first prepare the Jewish women
for the giving of the Torah, for in
their hands rests the responsibili-
ty for all future generations.
The goal of these events is to
stimulate general awareness of
the vital role that women play in
shaping the world, as wives,
mothers, educators, and to aid in
their contribution to maintaining
and transmitting their heritage.
The programs are designed to
awaken the spark in the heart and
soul of every Jewish woman,
revealing her joyous connection to
the past, and increasing her
understanding, which will lead to
a more common commitment and
unity in the present.
The Chabad Women's Organiza-
tion of Tampa, Jewish Women for
Jewish Survival proudly joins the
international salute to women.
Their program titled "The Make-
Up of the Jewish Woman" is
scheduled for Monday, March 9,
at the home of Diane Levine. The
highlights will include guest
speaker, Mrs. Eileen Weiss of
Miami, succesful business woman
and mother of 15, plus a profes-
sional makeover and color
analysis by Total Look
An additional feature will be a
new and exciting multi-media pro-
duction, "Close-Ups in Courage."
It portrays the lives of five Jewish
women, both single and married,
professional and homemakers.
One of the women portrayed is the
central character of the best-
selling book "Holy Days." The
women will be speaking for
themselves about their ex-
periences and thoughts, creating
woman-to-woman communication.
Refreshments will be served.

Adopts Sixty Refnaeniks
National board members of

unanimously, at their recent 16th
National Board Conference, to
"adopf'an unusual group of sixty
refuseniks presently living in
The group calls itself za-
imapomosh, which translated,
means "mutual aid." A year ago,
they formed a kind of community
- very like the Kehillah Move-
ment in turn-of-the-century New
York to provide communal sup-
port for one another. They are 20
families, mostly adults in their
early 40's, or younger, and their
children. Although there is a great
deal of diversity in ideology,
religious observance or non-
observance, interest, and profes-
sions, the group shares a fervent
desire to leave the Soviet Union.
They meet once a month for
discussions and cultural pro-
grams. Group members see
themselves as apolitical, not seek-
ing to change the Soviet system,
just to be allowed to leave.
As is common among
refuseniks, most of the adults
once educators, doctors,
engineers, and performers have
been forced to work in menial jobs
or positions for which they are

on Soviet Jewry, which asked
Women's American ORT to take
on responsibility for com-

include correspondence,

ble, visits to lessen the
refuseniks's sense of isolation
from Jews in other parts of the
world. In addition, Women's
American ORT will serve as ad-
vocates with American officials,
on the group's collective behalf.

The Road To Wealth Is Simpler Than You Think!
What's the sure road to fame
and riches? Is there a glory trail
open to each who would take it?
The "fame and glory" part we
can't comment on. Sorry. They
have eluded us with almost con-
spirational effectiveness.
But the "riches" part is another
story. Though this too, has
escaped our personal clutches,
we've had a front row seat to the
phenomenon where others are
concerned. We've witnessed
many as they successfully scaled
the heights to different plateaus
of financial success. And there
are, we're happy to report, a
number of roads available to the
proverbial pots of gold. Further-
more, the roads are sufficiently
accessible so that anyone can
undertake the journey. This hap-
pens to be one of the many nice
features about our society.
The first and most prominent
road to riches is the selection of a
career that will enable one to earn
a lot of money. As simple as this
sounds, it is often overlooked by
many, and pursued by even fewer.
If the career choice is sufficiently
correct so that the amount of
money coming in the front door is
greater than the amount being
shoveled out the back, almost no
other financial decisions or non
decisions are important.
A second source of major wealth
occasionally comes to a chosen
few by windfall. An extraordinary
bit of luck at the gaming tables, a
lottery ticket, or a surprise in-
heritance from a distant relative,
all can dump wealth in astonished
laps and toss financial worries to
the winds.
But financially wise career
choices and big breaks from life's
wheel of fortune somehow
manage to avoid most of us. For
the most part we have to settle for
Ask Your Congressman
We Must Stay The Course
Fighting Drug Abuse
Dear Congressman Gibbons:
At a time when drug addiction
in America is reaching epic pro-
portions, I fail to see the wisdom
in reducing funding for drug en-
forcement and drug prevention
programs. Nevertheless, I was
not surprised to wake up this mor-
ning and read that the govern-
ment plans to roll back authorized
spending levels for programs to
fight drug abuse programs.
Your observation that drug
abuse has reached epic propor-
tions in the United States is cor-
rrect. When Congress passed the
"Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986"
authorizing badly needed law en-
forcement and drug-abuse pro-
grams, the measure was praised
by the President and law enforce-
ment officials as providing in-
dispensable help in combating
drug-related crimes. Unfortunate-
ly, when the Administration sent
its budget plan for Fiscal Year
1988 to Congress this year, it fail-
ed to include adequate spending
levels for these essential
As you may know, the
legislative process requires
several separate steps to establish
needed programs. In addition to
the legislation required to
authorize programs, Congress
must also pass and the President
approve budget and appropria-
tions bills to provide funding for
these programs. Supporting
authorization for a program is
meaningless if you do not back it
up with the necessary funding.
In response to the President's
budget, I joined with all 19 Florida
Congressmen and both Senators
in protesting to the Administra-
tion its failure to include full fun-
ding for the Anti-Drug Abuse Act
for Fiscal Year 1988. In attemp-
ting to demonstrate our strong
commitment to the fight against
drug abuse, we pointed out that
almost 60 percent of all street
crimes in Florida are drug related
and that only through law en-
forcement, education, and drug
prevention and treatment pro-
grams, can America meet the
challenge presented by drug
Because so much of the nation's
drug traffic flows through our
State, Florida's lawmakers have
been forced to take the lead in the
battle against drug abuse. The
Florida Congressional Delegation
has pledged to work hard to in-
sure that necessary funding for
anti-drug abuse programs is in-
cldued in our nation's budget as
long as the need exists. We
strongly believe that we can both
meet the budget targets and pro-
vide a drug free future for our

pedestrian economic roles, and
labor long and hard for the bucks
that ultimately become ours. Our
financial accumulations come
about through blood, sweat, and
tears and perhaps an occasional
bout with Mr. Inflation.
But no matter how ordinary our
income happens to be, there is a
special highway we can travel to
financial success that many never
realize is attainable.
First, let us introduce you to an
unfamiliar creature in many
households. It's called thrift. And
basically it means not spending
not only what you don't have, but
not all of what you do have, as
well. No small task, by the way.
In a nation committed to con-
sumerism through such ingenious
creations as credit cards and in-
stallment purchases, thrift has
become not only a stranger but
has never even been introduced in
many family budgets.
Ben Franklin described the
practice of thrift best when he
said, "Spend one penny every day
less than thy clear gains." This
practice, once initiated, can be one
of the most "wealthful" steps
ever undertaken, irrespective of
income. If practiced persistently it
can make modest savings swell to
Gargantuan proportions and open
the door to a whole range of addi-
tional wealth generating forces.
Saving money can be ac-
complsihed any number of ways
but most of the techniques have to
be both resourceful and ingenious,
so great is the temptation to
spend in our society.
Some have money automatically
moved from checking to sayings
account on a periodic basis
monthly, weekly, whatever.
Others have funds automatically
deposited into one type of savings
receptical or another at payday
time. By this process the funds
are never conveniently available
for easy spending.
Some buy U.S. Treasury bonds
automatically on payday. But the
vehicle for savings dollars is not
merely as important as the
discipline to effect the savings
and the determination to leave the
funds untouched.
We have known spendthrifts
who finally got bitten by the thrift
bug and converted their spending
techniques into saving habits. The
experience was so satisfactory, as
a matter of fact, the savings habit
went on and on.
Once the thrift and saving habit
is initiated and maintained,
wealth accumultes far faster than
most realize. The saved dollars
generate new income and these in
turn earn still more dollars. It's
called compounding and it's one of
the very special roads to wealth.
Of course, the accumulated sav-
ings wealth can be redeployed in
any number of conservative or ag-
gressive investment programs,
(keep reading this column for the
best strategies). And the results,
even if only a little bit of conser-
vatism and prudence are observ-
ed, will pour even more wealth in-
to your coffers.
But none of this wealth ever oc-
curs without the simple practices
of thrift and savings. It s a one-
way highway that leads straight
to prosperity.
By the way, if you want to know
what else Ben Franklin had to say
about wealth and thrift, please
note carefully the following
"I will acquaint all with the true
secret of money catching the
certain way to fill empty pockets
and how to always keep them full.
Two simple rules well observed
will do the business. First, let
honesty and toil be thy constant
companions. Second, spend one
penny every day less than thy
clear gains. Then shall thy purses
begin to thrive, thy creditors will
never insult thee, nor want op-
press, nor hunger bite, nor
nakedness freeze thee. The whole
hemisphere will shine brighter
and pleasure spring up in every
corner of thy heart. Now hereby
embrace these rules and be
