Effect of Wall Street Crash
On Tel Aviv Exchange
Tel Aviv Stock Exchange
bounced back again last week
in brisk trading, recovering
five to seven percent of the
18-20 percent it lost in share
prices following the Wall
Street crash. But observers
said it was still too early to
forecast how the exchange
would behave in the coming
The Bank of Israel reported
that conversion to cash orders
for some 66 percent of the
commercial bank shares which
had been frozen totaled 1.4
billion shekels ($875 million)
out of 2 billion shekels ($1.25
billion) held by the public. The
funds will be deposited in the
investors' accounts on Oct. 30.
Capital markets commis-
sioner Yehuda Drori said he
expected no dramatic effect*',
on the economy from the large
amounts of cash that will be in-
jected by the end of the month
with the share payments.
He estimated that half of the
sums cashed-in will be
deposited almost immediately
in savings plans or be invested.
The balance would not
necessarily be used to finance
consumption, he added.
Dan Halperin, formerly
Israel's economic affairs
minister in Washington, wrote
in Maariv Wednesday that
since the U.S. government's
fiscal year is just beginning,
the Wall Street decline will
have no effect on U.S. aid to
It is reasonable to assume,
however, that the ability of
Jewish philanthropists to
fulfill their donation pledges
will be affected, since most of
them have a great deal of their
money invested in the stock
market, he wrote.
Yediot Aharonot quoted
Deputy Finance Minister Adiel
Amorai as saying that the en-
tire $1.2 billion in U.S. non-
military aid for this year will
be transferred to Israel in
another 10 days, and will not
be affected by the American
financial crisis.

A Roast and a Toast. Carol Peckett was surprised
with a party in her honor, celebrating her service with the
Arts Council. Carol retires from her position as Director of
the Artists in the Schools program after 14 years of ser-
vice. She started the program with Hillsborough County
School Board's Coordinator of Visual and Performing Arts
Joe Testasecca in 1973 with one pilot project in poetry for
2,400 students and 80 teachers. Since then, the Peckett-
Testasecca team has expanded the program to reach over
100,000 children yearly in all 131 Hillsborough County
schools with music, filmmaking, theatre, dance, creative
writing, photography, sculpture and folk arts. The Arts
Council, the schools and the children deeply appreciate
Carol's contributions to the cultural vitality of the schools
and the community. She will be greatly missed. Hats off to
Chicago, Chicago Women's American ORT
(Organization for Rehabilitation Through Training) recent-
ly had its 29th Biennial National Convention in Chicago,
celebrating its 60th year. Some of the panels which the
delegates attended were: First Amendment Rights at Risk;
American Jews and Israel: Our Relationship and Respon-
sibility; Inter-ethnic Conflicts, Tension, Solutions; and
Career and Family. Attending from this area were Ruth
Klein, President of the Tampa Bay Region; Lynne Billing,
Chairman of American and Jewish Affairs for the Tampa
Bay Region; Gail Reiss, who serves on the District Ex-
ecutive Board; Gail Titen, Treasurer/Financial Secretary

New Family Life Education
"Good family is never an acci-
dent but always an achieve-
ment by those who share it."
James S. Bossard
To help children obtain their
highest level of well-being, it is
important that they be expos-
ed to adults who can help pro-
vide healthy positive examples
and reinforcers of these at-
titudes to them. Elementary
children are in their formative
years and in order to meet the
challenge of today's society,
they must be provided with
more than current, coping
Family Life Education
Series, taught by Robin King
of the Tampa Jewish Family
Services, will do just that. It is
a six-week discussion group to
help preteens study issues that
affect their own personal
growth and development.
As we help our youth struc-
ture their identities and
understand their role-value
system, it must be realized
that there are new values for
today's youth as compared to
those of adults. Social, emo-
tional, physical and academic
areas are all integrated, em-
phasizing the need for such a
class and the total well-being
of the student.
Problem areas such as family
life, substance abuse, alcohol
education, and smoking are
"difficult" to address because

Congress Considering Actions
Affecting Non-Profits
Executive Director,
TOP Jewish Foundation
TOP The U.S. Congress is
reviewing two possible courses
of action that could have ma-
jor impact on non-profit
organizations throughout the
A Congressional staff op-
tions paper on possible new
taxes included a 4 percent ex-
cise tax on the net investment
income of nonprofit organiza-
tions and a 50 percent reduc-
tion in the value of itemized
deductions for charities. The
negative impact of those two
proposals and several others
which affect charitable giving
would be between $8-9 billion
annually, according to
research commissioned by the
Independent Sector and con-
ducted by Professor Lawrence
Lindsey of Harvard. The pur-
pose of the staff options paper
is to provide Congress with a
long list of ways by which ap-
proximately $19 billion could
be raised to meet the deficit
reduction requirements of the
Gramm-Rudman legislation.
There is no evidence that
Congress will seriously con-
sider reducing the value of
itemized deductions. However,
Senator Lloyd Bensten (D-
TX), Congressman Pickle (D-
TX), and Congressman Stark
(D-CA), all key members of
Congressional tax-writting
committees, have indicated
varying degrees of interest in
the 5 percent excise tax on
nonprofits. The tax would be
imposed on the investment in-
come of all tax-exempt
organizations; that is, on the
sum of gross investment in-
come (including interest and
dividends) plus net capital
gain, less the expense of earn-
ing such income. The tax
would apply not only to 601
(cX3) organizations, but also in-
cluding foundations, to pay ex-
cise taxes of an estimated $1
billion dollars.
In addition, U.S. Senator
John Melcher has introduced
Senate Bill No. 929, the
"Volunteer Protection Act of
1987" (also introduced in the
House by Congressman John
Edward Porter of Illinois as
HR 911). Within certain
states, volunteers have recent-
ly been less willing to offer
their services. There is a
perception that they may be
putting personal assets at risk
in the event of liability actions
against the organization they
Liability insurance costs for
Boards of Directors are in-
creasing by one-half or more
every year. Particularly at risk
are organizations dealing with
youth, the aged, mental
health, hospitals, and social
service agencies.
The bills being considered
provide immunity for
volunteers from civil liability
if: "(1) such individual was ac-
ting in good faith and within
the scope of such individual's
official functions and duties
with the organization or enti-
ty; and (2) such damage or in-
jury was not caused by willful
and wanton misconduct by
such individual."
Twenty-two States have
already enacted volunteer pro-
tection laws. Florida is not one
of them.
Frankfurt Prosecutor
Actively Pursuing
Alois Brunner
Washington, D.C. Sen. Lawton Chiles, (D.,
Flo.), (right) met Wednesday with Moishe
Nissim, Israeli Minister of Finance (left).
Chiles told Nissim he will ask the Senate Ap-
propriations Subcommittee on Foreign
Operations to authorize the refinancing of the
high interest part of Israel's American debt.
About one billion dollars of Israel's $10 billion
official debt to the United States would be af-
fected, Chiles said. The refinancing would be
at rates about two percent lower than at pre-
sent. Affected debt is from military sales. The
subcommittee will meet on the matter in mid-

Mr. Fritz Weinschenk, New
York Commissioner for the
District Attorney's Office in
Frankfurt, Germany, advises
that the Frankfurt prosecutor
is actively pursuing the case of
Alois Brunner, who heads the
list of major Nazi war
criminals still at large. In this
connection, witnesses are
needed to Brunner's wartime
activities in Berlin,
Czechoslovakia, and Greece.
All replies should be directed
to Mr. Weinschenk. His ad-
dress is Hamburger,
Weinschenk, Moinar and
Busch, 36 W 44th St., Suite

Weinschenk's telephone

lect calls will be accepted.
George Washington called it
the "precious depository of
American happiness." Thomas
Jefferson said it is "the result
of the collected wisdom of our
country." For Abraham Lin-
coln, it is "the only safeguard
of our liberties."
They were all referring to
the U.S. Constitution, the
backbone of our government.
And, years later, their words
still hold true.
As we celebrate the 200th
year of the U.S. Constitution,
we Americans can boast that
our Constitution is the oldest
written instrument of national
government in the world still
in use.
What amazes me most about
the Constitution is its durabili-
ty in a country that has chang-
ed so dramatically since its
beginnings. The Constitution
was written for an agricultural
society of some 4 million peo-
ple. Today, that same docu-
ment applies to a complex,
technological society where
most people live in cities or
suburbs. During civil war,
world war, prosperous times
and hard times, it has endured.
It is truly a living document.
In spite of the countless
changes in society, only 26
amendments have been added
to the Constitution. I think the
general wording in the Con-
stitution has helped make it
adaptable to our changing
country. But we must never
try to change the basic prin-
ciples establishment by our
founding fathers.
It is easy to take for granted
the freedoms and principles in-
cluded in our Constitution. But
for the sake of the framers
who created it, the genera-
tions who have respected it
and the citizens who are af-
fected by it, we should unders-
tand and appreciate it.
The observance this year of
the U.S. Constitution marks
the first year of a five-year
celebration of the writing and
ratification of the Constitu-
tion, the founding of the
federal government, and the
adoption and ratification of the
Bill of Rights. Each of us
should become involved in the
celebration of the Constitu-
tion, which affects our lives
each day. It is hard to imagine
what we would be without it.

Another Generation Traces
The PathWith Betar
"Whenever I Travel,
I Am Traveling
To Israel"
Vice President and Director
of Jacksonville, Florida Jewish
Federation, who accompanied
the Betar group to Poland and
The Jacksonville Jewish
Federation's first Israel Betar
Teen Experience was filled
with high adventure, excite-
ment, pathos, and emotion. I
was privileged to be able to ac-
company this truly special
group of young people from
Jacksonville, Sarasota and
New York. I offer a series of
thoughts to convey the ex-
perience that our teens have
just had.
Birkenau Death Camp.
Here 18,000 Jewish souls
perished daily at the bidding of
Dr. Mengele's selekstia (selec-
tion) process. One swing of the
baton: to the left: death, to the
right: temporary respite. To-
day all is silent as Betarim
from Florida walk along the
railroad tracks that brought
the cattle cars filled with Jews.
Near the demolished
crematoria the Polish govern-
ment is placing new roofs on
barracks that housed the camp
inmates. A surreal atmosphere
Nonetheless, or maybe
because of it, our children are
not weeping. They are not
overcome by the pain and hor-
ror of what happened here.
They walk its pathways as pro-
ud, happy, uplifted Jews. Has
America's happy-go-lucky
culture gone too far?
A few days later we discuss
the theological implications of
the Holocaust. How can we, as
a people believe in G-d, in
anything our tradition teaches,
after what occurred only 50
years ago? The group refuses
to even accept the basis of this
"How can you ask such a
question?" they exclaim. Here
we are sitting in what was
once Gestapo headquarters
free Jews. We have survived.
We have Israel. The Germans
are gone. We have won.
A superficial response, a lit-
tle too glib, perhaps naive?
Maybe. Later I hear a New
York teen say to one from the
Betar Florida group "Maybe
I'll see you next week in
Jerusalem." So natural today,
yet so totally bizarre only
yesterday. We sing the "Par-
tisan Lied," the Partisan song,
in the hallways of the Europe-
jski Hotel: "Never say that you
have gone the last road ..."
What would the SS have said?
What can we say? This is how
we act today even in
Auschwitz and Birkenau! Yes,
we have won!
Shabbat, the Warsaw
Synagogue. A young girl
hesitantly, apprehensively
watches the proceedings just
outside its entrance. Growing
increasingly suspicious and
worried, we confront her. Her
name is Tatiana, 15 years old.
Her mother is Jewish, her
father, a Pole. She says that
she is the last Jewish teenager
left in Warsaw. She fervently
wants to make aliyah, to live
freely as a Jew in Israel. Her
mother encourages her, she
also wants to leave Poland, but
she is afraid. Fear and suspi-
cion, feelings that intrude into
many conversations in Poland.
Our trip to Poland has under-
taken an added urgency as
Betar in Israel and I, through
the joint Distribution Commit-
tee in New York, will in-
vestigate the possibility of br-
inging Tatiana to a youth
aliyah village in Israel. If we
succeed, maybe it was for this
supreme mitzvah of saving a
Jewish soul that Jacksonville's
"From Tragedy to Triumph"
teen trip was destined.
Shabbat services continue,
but now our focus shifts to an
old shabbily-dressed woman
who sits down beside me. She
asks if, by chance, I have any
lemons or oranges. Such fruit
cannot be found in Warsaw.
They soothe her nervous con-
dition. Ross tells her story.
Once as a young girl in Cracow
during a program, she saved a
Sefer Torah, a Torah scroll,
from a burning synagogue.
During the war, when the Ger-
mans entered the city, half of
her family, including her
parents, were shot on the spot.
The remainder of the com-
munity was removed to the
Jewish cemetery "the living
above, the dead below" she
tells me.
As those who remained were
collected for extermination,
Rosa escapes, injuring her
back and legs. That evening,
half-dead, sleeping in the
woods, her mother appears to
her in a dream. Because of the

explains, Rosa was spared to-
day. Since the end of the war,
Rosa comes to shul every
Shabbat to kiss the Torah as it

Upon returning to Jackson-

responsibility. Every month it
will send lemons and oranges

Maidanek. A death camp on
the outskirts of Lublin. Its
gate lies on the mainroad from
Zamocz to Lublin. Its
crematorium functioned less
than half a mile from the road.
Three hundred sixty thousand
Jews perished there. Today,
their ashes are collected
together in a monument where
no mention of Jews can be
found. A few thousand feet
from the barracks that once
housed inmates, new apart-
ment houses rise from where
Poles can look out of their
bedroom windows daily at this
living atrocity.
Poles similar to our bus
driver, Bogdan. ... to those
familiar with the rythms of our
tragic past, the name brings to
mind a heinous lineage
Bogdan Chmielnicki, the in-
famous Cossack who began a
series of pogroms during the
17th century that killed hun-
dreds of thousands of Jews.
But of course Bogdan the bus
driver has little to do with
these matters. He just drives a
bus on the road into Lublin,
the road where his father or
uncle or grandfather may have
passed while the crematorium
burned and burned.
Warsaw. The Jewish
Historical Institute, a museum
of Judaica on the site of the
Warsaw Ghetto. Displayed in
it are Channukah menorahs,
Torah scrolls, silver Torah
crowns, a host of Jewish ob-
jects collected from
throughout Poland. The
significance of each is explain-
ed by a Polish guide who is a
member of the museum staff.
On Saturday evening we at-
tend a production of the Polish
Yiddish Theater an adoption

tors are Poles, the audience is
A strange unsettling feeling
descends on us all. We are
witness to the remains of a

Germany. We have no choice
but to transfer to another
flight here. We are happy to be
out of Poland, but are troubled

us want to even touch its
ground. As Amos, the Israel
Shaliach, and I eat lunch, an
obviously wealthy couple sits
down opposite us. Hearing our
Hebrew, the gentleman in-
troduces himself as an Israeli.
His wife, who seems to unders-
tand the substance of our con-
versation, is German.
This double fence, once patrolled by Nazi guards, marks the
perimeter ofthe Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in Poland.
"You are a tourist?" "No,
I've lived in Germany for 19
years. I commute often to
Israel. I work in Germany, but
I play in Israel." "How can you

"Why not? It's a new country,
a new generation. What is
done is done. We must go for-
ward." The man's smile is
reflected in the heavy gold
chain around his neck. We can
barely finish our lunch.
Thirty-minutes later we are
talking to the El Al security
guard. We tell him about the
trip to Poland. "Why did you
have to go through Ger-
many?," he asks. We explain
that we had no choice. "How
long must you be stationed
here?," we ask. "Too long," he

The Song of Songs. Before long
he is busy weaving his own

Solomon refers to the eternal

evening, in a gift shop, I hear

begin to speak about intermar-
riage, "We have lost too many

"Why do we have to lose more

to echo.

After two years as assistant
director with the Tampa
Jewish Federation, Lisa Bush
has added a new hat and taken
on the duties of coordinator of
the Women's Division.
"In being able to use my
resources and expertise to give
direction and growth to this
division, as we work in part-
nership, we will be sensitizing
the community and educating
effective leaders. This will
allow me to broaden my scope
in the campaign arena and to
translate this into Jewish
dollars," said Bush.
"In setting priorities for the
coming year I want the com-
munity to perceive the
Women's Division as the "in"
place to be, and I want every
woman to feel that she can
stand and be counted as her
own person. Women must no
longer be naive about giving
out of the goodness of their
heart; they must give out of a
commitment to a cause."
Lisa continued, "About 25 to
30 percent of the community
dollars are raised by this divi-
sion. Women need to realize
that the Jewish vote in Con-
gress is very powerful and that
the United States government
in designating funds for Israel
looks not only at the dollar
amount given to the UJA, but
also to the number of con-
tributors. Therefore, increas-.

The Women's Division,
under the leadership of Ann
Rudolph as president, seems to
be heading in a new direction.
A major goal will be building
community through education

Using a series of task forces,
the Women's Division hopes to
involve more members of the
Shalom Tampa will again
identify newcomers and
recruit them into Jewish com-
munal activities by
disseminating accurate infor-
mation about the many Jewish
services the community pro-
vides. The co-chairmen of this
task force are Debbie Albert
and Amy Scherzer.
Two other task forces rais-
ing awareness and con-
sciousness will be the
Women's Plea for Soviet
Jewry and the Women's
Forum. The latter will involve
the presidents and leadership
of women's organizations pro-
viding a forum to address per-
tinent women's issues as they
affect the community or the in-
dividual organization.

one of the most successful productions in ex-
istence today. This much-anticipated musicale
began in 1969 and in the intervening years
there have been over 1,200 performances
throughout the World. From New York to
Johannesburg, Jerusalem to Vancouver, the
FESTIVAL is an annual event on three con-
tinents, seen by more than 150,000 people in
70 cities. Few attain this level of popularity
and acclaim.
FESTIVAL, in 1969, was intended to be a
one-time contest for the best music set to
Biblical verse. However, due to the over-
whelming response, the course of history
changed for this musical event. Since then,
composers from all over the world have
entered their works in this spirited competi-
tion and the outstanding result brings joy to
The 18 years of the ISRAELI CHASSIDIC
FESTIVAL have produced 180 songs, at
least half of which have become "hits," not
only in Israel but in Jewish communities
everywhere. Songs such as "Adon Olam,"
"Yedid Nefesh," "Halleluya" and "Shema
Israel" are Biblical verse set to contemporary
music. They express the heart and soul of the
Jewish people, the modern form of their an-
cient heritage.

come out to dance and songs fill the air with
the soul of Israel; make sure you're there

Page 8 The Jewish Floridian of Tampa/Friday, October 30, 1987

Dear Janice:
I moved to Florida about five
years ago and I've kept in
close touch with my mother up
north since then. We visit
twice a year, with me going up
north in the summer time, and
her visiting me here for a
month during the winter. And
we talk every weekend. Most
of the time I enjoy talking to
my mother, and we share the
news and events of the week. I
tell her about what's happened
here with the kids, their school
events, etc., and she tells me
about where she has gone for
lunch with the other senior
citizens, about her bingo
games, and about her friends.
Every once in a while, we have
what I call a "difficult" talk.
That is, she becomes illogical
and doesn't make sense. And
when this happens, she also
won't listen to reason or to
anything I have to say. This is
what happened this week: She
asked me to send her a sum of
money which is hers, but which
is in my name. She doesn't
really have any need for this
money, because she refuses to
buy herself much more than
the necessities. She said she
just wanted me to send it; it
was her money; and she
wanted it in her house. I tried
to talk her out of it. If she had
a good reason and really need-
ed it for something, I would be
glad to send it to her. But I'm
afraid that she'll just set the
check aside and do nothing
with it, possible lose it. And all
that time, it will be losing the
interest it could be accruing in
the bank. While I don't want to
take a chance with her money,
I still want her to know that it
is hers, and that she can have
it for a worthwhile expense.
How can I make her
Dear Money-Managing
Have you sent her a copy of
the bank statement showing
what she has in it? And
could you send her small
amounts of money, perhaps
the interest, and see how
she spends it? You want to
protect your mother's
assets without letting her
waste it or lose it, and that
is understandable. She
needs to feel that she has
power over her own assets,
that she can do with them as
she wants. She wants to feel
independent. Maybe there is
a third person who lives
near your mother who could
be trusted to share in this
issue, someone with whom
your mother feels comfor-
table, and who could help
her to see that it is
beneficial to leave the prin-
ciple alone until she has a
specific need for it. It may
be that by your next conver-
sation with your mom, she
will have calmed down and
begun to think logically on
her own.
Dear Janice:
A friend of mine, more like
an acquaintance, has asked me
to play tennis with him on
several occasions. Every time
we schedule a game,
something comes up that
causes him to postpone the
game. He seems to be sincere
in wanting to play with me, but
he just doesn't know how to
say no to spontaneous requests
for his time that come along.
The first time he cancelled out,
I was not really bothered by it.
But by the third time this hap-
pened, I was really teed off.
How do you make someone
understand that they're being
rude to one person in order to
be nice to another person? And
I'm tired of being the one who

Dear Janice:
I have worked in my office
for four years and just recently
was promoted to head book-
keeper. All my former co-
workers are supervised by the
office manager, but I am
supervised by the boss. All of
the women who I used to look
on as friends have stopped ask-
ing me out for lunch and don't
seem to want to make small
talk with me any more. I really
feel left out, and I miss the
contact I used to have with
them. How do I let them know
that I'm still the same person
now that I was before?
Dear Left-Out:
Your former co-workers pro-
bably see you now as more
closely aligned with the
boss, and they may be afraid
that you confide in him. This
would make them hesitant
to share anything intimate
with you now. Let's look at
the options: First, you could
ignore the situation and just
be on your own, but that's
really lonely. Secondly, you
could talk to the office
manager and ask her to help
you to solve the problem.
Lastly, you could talk to
your former co-workers and
assure them that you will
not betray their confidence
to the boss. Good luck in
choosing the right answer
for you.

A Short Memory in the Gulf
'American Umbrella' For Iraqi Interests?
Middle East scholar visiting
the United States has
wondered at the naivete of
Americans vis-a-vis the Per-
sian Gulf, and the perception
that Israel wants the Gull War
to continue.
Dr. Yossi Olmert, a research
scholar at the Dayan Center
for Middle Eastern Studies at
dent Kurt Waldheim has
denied overseas media reports
that he was recruited by the
Office of Strategic Services
(OSS), precursor to the CIA,
after World War II. A
spokesman for Waldheim call-
ed the reports "untrue and
According to the reports, the
OSS began recruiting German
officers who had held key in-
telligence posts during the
war. Waldheim served as an
intelligence officer in a Ger-
man army unit that carried out
atrocities in the Balkans, in-
cluding the deportation of
Greek Jews. He deals with in-
formation about the Yugosla-
vian resistance, British com-
mando activities in the
Mediterranean and later
Soviet armies in the Balkans.
The OSS was said to have
sought German intelligence
personnel familiar with Soviet,
Communist and other leftist
Meanwhile, the Austrian
Foreign Ministry announced
that it would ask the U.S.
State Department, on behalf of
Waldheim, for the president's
CIA file, which the Central In-
telligence Agency has refused
to make public so far.

Tel Aviv University and a lec-
turer at the school's Depart-
ment of Middle Eastern and
African Studies, was in the
United States recently for a
lecture series sponsored by the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
In an interview at the JTA
offices, the 38-year-old
scholar, who is the youngest
brother of Likud M.K. Ehud
Olmert, sat and marveled at
the long-time insistence of
Americans to view the Arab-
Israeli conflict as the dominant
policy issue facing the Middle
East while ignoring other
areas of potentially dangerous
contention in the region.
Now, he noted, Americans
are being unavoidably con-
fronted by other Mideast
dynamics through daily news
dispatches from the Persian
Olmert also expressed skep-
ticism that America has a
clear-cut, intelligent approach
to its elevated involvement in
the Persian Gulf.
"I hope that they have a
strategy, not just tactics. I
hope they have a reasonable
measure of cooperation with
their allies," he said. "There is
no reason for America to be
deeply involved in the Gulf,
enabling countries like Iraq to
cause trouble. That would
deteriorate the situation."
Olmert wanted to ensure
that Americans remembered
who, indeed, struck the first
blow that began the now
seven-year-long Gulf War.
"The Iraqis attacked Iranian
shipping. If America really
wants to protect free naviga-
tion in the Gulf, they have to
be event-handed in that sense,
to make sure the Iraqis don't
go crazy."
He took aim at America's
short memory in the Gulf, say-
ing "America seems to forget
that Iraq killed 36 Americans.
"His suggested response?
"Tell the Iraqis and the Ira-
nians that they can expect the
same treatment from
America. Instead, what is hap-
pening in reality is that the
Iraqis have an American
Commenting on Israel's
position on the war, Olmert
said, "The general perception
that Israel wants the Gulf War
to continue is incorrect. We
are not very much interested
in a war that is taking place
between two of our worst
enemies." However, he admit-
ted that "We have no reason
to wish Iraq to win the war."
Touching on the clandestine
scheme to sell arms to Iran,
Olmert said Israel had "very
good reason" to take part in
the largely American caper.
"First of all, Israel does not
sell very many arms to Iran.
But Iranians are very short of
aircraft and spare parts, and L
Iran and Israel use the same
American planes and the same
American arms." But even
more important, explained
Olmert, \s the existence of
Iranian Jewry. What is Israel
if not a Jewish state?" The
presence of a Jewish communi-
ty anywhere is reason enough
for Israel to get involved
somehow in that country, he
Glabal political reasoning
also plays an obvious part,
Olmert observed, echoing
responses now familiar to
American ears. "Look, there
are many Israelis who believe
that the Khomeini regime is
not likely to last forevermore.
There may be another
upheaval in Iran," he said, and
while there could be a Western
element, there also could be a
Soviet takeover.
"We don't want to see a pro-
Soviet regime in Iran, nor does
America, he pointed out.
"Just imagine the Soviets in
Iran. There is no question that
Iran is lost now, but is it lost
forever? There must be some
thinking for the future."

Hillel School 'Goes Hollywood*
For 1987 Gift of Gold Benefit

On Saturday, tyov. 21 at 7:30
p.m. parents and friends of the
Hillel School of Tampa will
gather to celebrate their starr-
ing and supporting roles in the
1987 Gift of Gold benefit as
"Hillel Goes Hollywood." The
Parents' Association is again
sponsoring its annual major
fund-raiser which will
culminate with an "on loca-
tion" party at the Tampa Air-
port Marriott Hotel.
Filmdom's greats, near-
greats, and has-beens are ex-
pected for an evening of
glamour and suspense. Guests
are encouraged to dress as
favorite movie stars or
characters for the event,
which will feature music,
champagne, a Kosher dinner
buffet, and the awarding of the
grand prizes of $5,000, $1,000,
and $500.
The Gift of Gold '87
represents the continuation of
a tradition begun in 1975
whereby the parents accepted
the responsibility of raising a
significant sum to be used for
the enhancement of the
school's educational programs.
Through the efforts of parents
and board members, and the
gracious support of the com-
munity, the project has grown
each year, and is now regarded
as an essential part of Hillel's
annual revenue.
All interested friends are in-
vited to participate in the Gift
of Gold with a $100 contribu-
tion or fractional portion
thereof. Information- and
tickets are available through
any parent, board member, or
the school office, 875-8287.
Susan Forman and Laura
Kreitzer are chairing the Gift
of Gold and are seeking to
build upon the successes of last
year's chairmen, Laurie
Hanan and Jan Wuliger, who
are coordinating the
Tinseltown decorations.
Carole Ewen is Parents'
Association president. Party
reservations at $20 per person
may be made by calling
286-8133 or 286-8276.
TOP Endowment Opportunities for Hillel School
The Tampa Orlando Pinellas
Jewish Foundation, Inc. (TOP)
is the endowment arm of the
three Federations. Its primary
goals are to provide a finan-
cially secure future for all of
the Jewish agencies, and to
facilitate the process of Jewish
donors making gifts to the
agencies in which they are
The most important form of
endowments are designated
funds. These funds may be
named for a particular in-
dividual or family. The prin-
cipal is never touched, but
rather is invested. In perpetui-
ty, all interest income earned
on an annual basis is sent to
the particular agency for the
purposes outlined in the fund
agreement document. For ex-
ample, there is currently a
fund that has been designated
for scholarships, and another
for books and other materials.
A Hillel School Field of In-
terest Fund can be started
with a minimum gift of $2,500.
Once established, additional
gifts of any amount may be
made to this fund. Funds may
also be organized for a specific
purpose such as "Hebrew
education," "building endow-
ment," or "gifted student
Individuals may also alert a
personal advised philanthropic
fund. It is called an "advised"
fund because you and anyone
else you may appoint may give
advice to your local distribu-
tion committee to make
charitable distributions in your
fund's name based on your
charitable interests. A few ex-
amples of suggested distribu-
tions that have been made are:
to supplement one's annual
federation support; to give ad-
ditional support to one's
synagogue/temple; to support
a communty capital funds pro-
gram; to support the local sym-
phony, medical research pro-
gram or literally any non-
profit organization that is af-
forded public charity status by
the Internal Revenue Service.
