Thousands Expected
For Washington Rally
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Planes are already booked
solid in many cities and hun-
dreds of buses in New York
are chartered to bring Jews to
the Mobilization to the Summit
march and rally scheduled
here Dec. 6.
The demonstrators intend to
show their support for Soviet
Jewry on the eve of the
meetings between President
Reagan and Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev, according
[to David Harris, the AJCom-
mittee's Washington represen-
tative and coordinator of the
I mobilization.
He said all flights arriving
[here from Dayton, Ohio, and
Kansas City have been booked
for that weekend and that
Philadelphia and Baltimore
are expected to send 10,000
demonstrators each. Miami
has chartered two jetliners and
is holding space on commercial
flights in anticipation of its
contingent.
Harris spoke to reporters
following a day of briefings in
Congress and the administra-
tion for about 25 represen-
tatives of a dozen
communities.
They met with Richard
Shifter, assistant secretary of
state for human rights and
humanitarian affairs; Rozanne
Ridgway, assistant secretary
of state for Europe and
Canada; Rep. Dante Fascell
(D., Fla.), chairman of the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee; and Sen. Daniel
Moynihan (D., N.Y.).
Theodore Ellenoff, AJCom-
mittee president, said the of-
ficials were highly supportive
of the mobilization plans, and
indicated that the demonstra-
tion should not be "modest."
Fascell showed strong interest
in attending, stating "his pas-
sionate belief in human liber-
ties," Ellenoff said.
COME TO WASHINGTON
But If You Can't...
The rally, to be held from 1
p.m. to 4 p.m. that Sunday,
wiii' call on the Soviets to per-
mit the emigration of all Jews
who seek it, and to allow those
that want to remain in the
Soviet Union to practice their
religion without reprisal, he
said.
The demonstrators will
assemble at the Ellipse, near
the White House, starting at
11 a.m. and then march to the
Lincoln Memorial.
Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel is
honorary chairman of the
event. Commitments to attend
have been received from
leading former refuseniks
Natan Sharansky, Ida Nudel
and Vladimir and Maria
Slepak.
Gorbachev is not expected to
arrive here until the following
evening. He then is scheduled
for talks with Reagan on Dec.
8 and 9 and to leave
Washington on Dec. 10.

The Gathering In Washington
Sunday, Dec. 6
BE THERE!!!
The Soviet Jewry movement in the United States will
have its best opportunity to demonstrate the meaning and
justice of its cause to the widest possible audience when
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and his entourage arrive
here for the summit on Dec. 6. The American public and
media, the Reagan Administration, world public opinion,
even the Soviets, will be expecting a massive expression of
that concern. Thus, the critical need for a good national
mobilization in Washington.
The American Jewish community, and others who share
our concern for Soviet Jewry, will be called upon to come to
Washington in great numbers: caravans of buses cun verg-
ing on Washington from the many Jewish communities
along the Eastern seaboard; a special "Freedom Train"
winding its way down the northeast corridor; chartered air-
craft flying plane loads of committed activists from cities
large and small throughout the country. Tampa can do this
too!
All will gather on Sunday, Dec. 6 at the Ellipse in the
back yard of the White House where the march will begin.
There, leaders of the struggle, leading public officials,
former Refuseniks, prominent artists, writers and enter-
tainers will each, in his or her own way, tell the story of
Soviet Jewry and expose to the spotlight of world opinion
the repression they suffer. The day will demonstrate the
commitment not only of the participants but also of the
many others who could not come to Washington. The par-
ticipants will return home that evening knowing their
presence sent a dramatic message to the President of the
United States and the Secretary General of the Soviet
Communist Party: that the plight of Soviet Jewry is a vital
concern of all Americans.
For additional information on how to become a part of
this historic event, call Sherri Kramer at the Tampa Jewish
Federation, 875-1618.
As you are well aware by
jnow, Sunday, Dec. 6 will be
I another important date for the
[history books. It will be
remembered as the day
lousands upon thousands of
aple from all corners of the
Jnited States, along with our
neighbors in Canada and Mex-
ico, came to our Nation's
Capitol to show their support
bf the plight of all people in the
Soviet Union who were denied
tie freedom to practice their
hosen beliefs or to immigrate
i a country where they could.
This demonstration of
olidarity will show Secretary
eneral of the Soviet Com-
bunist Party that this issue
fill not go away. That we as
December 7
Americans are concerned
about the human rights of all
people and are excited that
Glasnost has opened the door
to the communication which is
so critical to the resolution of
this problem.
If you are not able to show
your support in Washington
you are urged to attend a rally
being held at Ruth Eckerd Hall
on Sunday, Dec. 6, from 6:30
p.m. to 7:30 p.m. preceeding
the Chassidic festival.
COME, show your support!

You're so dramatic Drama students from Berkeely
Prep earned Superior and Excellent ratings at the District
IX Thespian Competition held recently at Florida Southern
College in Lakeland. The students who participated are
members of Berkeley's Advanced Drama Workshop under
the direction of Michael Locklair, Fine Arts Department
chairman. David Leibowitz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward
Leibowitz, and in grade 11, received superior for his entry
in Monologue category. Julie Turkel, a Senior, earned an
excellent rating with her partner for Duet Pantomine.
Julie is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Robert Turkel.
Michael Shimberg, a tenth grader, and his partner also

noted that it is being held on a
Sunday, which means people
can attend without having to
take off from work or school.
In addition, he said, the
mobilization "will have suffi-
cient reverberations to last all
the way through Monday,"
since Gorbachev's people
"read the press, observe the
streets, (and) listen to the
radio and TV." The summit
will mark Gorbachev's first
visit to the United States.

Central Florida Council For Soviet Jewry Forms
A unified voice for Soviet
Jewry in this area the Cen-
tral Florida Council for Soviet
Jewry has been borne out of
the hard work of a small group
of people.
"Before we officially an-
nounced ourselves we wanted
to define ourselves as an
organization, our goals and to
establish specific guidelines
for action," said chairman
Susan Davis. "We have ac-
complished this and more. We
have set the wheels of pro-
gress in motion and have laun-
ched into the community."
Community members so far
include representatives from
almost every temple and
synagogue in Pinellas County.
The committee is also working
with Rabbis from Daytona
Beach, Orlando and Lakeland.
Work is under way to enlist
representatives from the
various organizations such as
Hadassah and ORT. In addi-
tion Ms. Davis is a member of
Gorbachev's declarations of
glasnost (openness) and
perestroyka (economic
restructuring) have created
challenges, such as to discern
the real changes taking place,
they also present opportunities
to live up to their own declara-
tions in this new "spirit of
openness."
The Council is assisting with
the Community Soviet Jewry
Rally and in the Washington

"We also believe that the
United States and our Move-
ment have never been in a
stronger position to press for
Soviet Jewish emigration,"
Ms. Davis said. "While Mikhail

tee. "We are working with
them in an atmosphere of uni-
ty and strength to help Jews
trapped in the Soviet Union.
At this time we are in the pro-
cess of forming a relationship
with Hillsborough's Tampa
Jewish Federation, Communi-
ty Relations Committee," she
said.
Central Florida Council for
Soviet Jewry believes the
single most effective advocate
on behalf of Soviet Jewry is
the U.S. government, and the
Council's job is to let the
government know that we are
very concerned about human
rights and Soviet Jewry in the
Mobilization.
On a recent visit to
Washington D.C. Ms. Davis,
representing the Central
Florida Council for Soviet
Jewry, was welcomed by
Natan Sharansky, voice of the
Soviet Jewry Movement. "Mr.
Sharansky reemphasized the
importance of our support to
the refuseniks who are engulf-
ed in their struggle for
freedom," she said.
While in Washington, Ms.
Davis visited Capital Hill to
lobby for Soviet Jewry.
"Senator Lawton Chiles and
Congressman Michael
Bilirakis are taking an active
role in supporting our council's
efforts. Both have adopted
Refusenik families that we as a
council have adopted. In addi-
tion, Sen. Bob Graham has
generated correspondence for
us."

The Words of A Young Woman On Her Bat-Mitzvah &5^^&eSSS
By MARNI SHOR
Two weeks ago I became a
Bat Mitzvah. One of the most
special parts of this occasion
was being a Bat-Mitzvah twin.
I chose to take part in twinn-
ing because I felt I needed to
help children my age who can
not have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah
share and learn about one
through the Bar/Bat Mitzvah
twinning program.
Here is an example of what
is happening to the Jews in the
Soviet Union who wish to
leave Russia and practice their
religion freely.
Dana Lariosky, my Soviet
twin, comes from a family of
four. Her father lost his job,
the family barely has enough
money to live, and every time
they request permission to
leave Russia, rights are taken
away from them. Dana's fami-
ly is one example of the
thousands of families who are
having to deal with the same
problem because they are
Jewish and wish to emigrate.
Dana is a 13-year-old girl I
have been writing to for
several months. I don't know
whether she has received my

letters or not and I probably
will never find out. I wro'ite to
her telling her about my fami-
ly, my life in the U.S., our Bat-
Mitzvah. She is not allowed to
freely practice her religion
because she is Jewish.
We take being able to go to
Hebrew School and celebrate
Jewish holidays for granted. If
we stopped to think about
religious freedom, we would
realize how lucky we are. This
is a problem that we in the
United States should be very
concerned about.
However, there are ways to
show our support for our
fellow Jews.
One way is to wear the
Refusenik bracelet. A
Refusenik is a person who ap-
plies to leave Russia. Because
they want to leave they loose
their job and they are followed
and harrassed by the govern-
ment of the USSR.
Until I receive word that
Dana and her family have per-
mission to leave Russia and
emigrate to a life of freedom, I
will continue to wear this
Refusenik bracelet, which is a
reminder of my friend who is
being denied basic human
rights only because she is
Jewish.

Begun Under
House Arrest
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Long-
time refusenik Iosif Begun was
among at least a score of
Jewish activists who were
placed under house arrest and
had their telephones discon-
nected for several hours Sun-
day. Reports from Moscow
said the house arrests would
be "for at least one day."
But Begun contacted the
Israel Defense Force radio by
phone Monday morning. He
said his telephone was recon-
nected Sunday evening but did
not say whether he was still
under house arrest.
These developments occur-
red some hours after Begun
spoke to the newspaper
Maariv by telephone Sunday
to report that his son, Boris,
with his wife and children,
have been promised exit visas
by the Soviet authorities. He
said the entire family will be
coming to Israel soon.
Begun had been among a
group of at least 20 activists
who planned to protest outside
the Soviet Foreign Ministry's
press center in Moscow
X'nst the recent increase in
cially condoned anti-
Semitism in the USSR.
The KGB learned of the
plans and its agents swooped
down on the activists' homes.
The activists had requested
permission for a demonstra-
tion several weeks ago, but
were turned down and cancel-
ed their plans at that time.
Begun himself was granted
an exit visa a few months ago,
but refused to leave without
the rest of his family. This
gave rise to reports that he in-
tended to remain in the Soviet
Union to work for the right of
Jews to practice their religion
and culture without hindrance
or harassment.
But Begun denied the
reports. His son, Boris, was
refused a visa because his in-
laws would not sign a docu-
ment consenting to their
daughter's departure from the
country. They have still not
signed it.
But, according to Begun,
Boris was summoned to OVIR,
the Soviet emigration office,
over the weekend and told that
he and his family would get
visas. Begun told Maariv he
had no idea why the
authorities decided now to
allow his son to leave.
Readers Write
Dear Editor:
Jewish periodicals often
cover the cult and missionary
problem, but readers are
almost never told where to go
for help. Below is a partial list
of counter-cult & counter-
missionary groups which may
be able to provide assistance to
those in need, such as: counsel-
ing, family support, rehabilita-
tion, lectures, classes and
seminars, consulting, campus
programs, newsletters and

grams, information and refer-
ral services, and literature.

Tampa Jewish Family
Service Helps
'Towers' Residents
Friday, November 27, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 5
By JANICE PERELMAN
Anyone who has ever had a
friend die has experienced a
sense of loss, of sadness, of
emptiness, and even of anger.
You pay your respects by at-
tending a service, perhaps
even by accompanying the
casket to the cemetery to see it
laid to rest. You say prayers.
You cry.
What happens when this
scene is repeated? How do you
feel if you lose five friends in
only one month's time? This is
what happened recently at
Jewish Towers. Unfortunate-
ly, a number of elderly people
were mourned there recently
when five of our senior citizens
died within a short span of
time.
In order to help the residents
of Jewish Towers deal with
such a catastrophe, Tampa
Jewish Family Services sent
one of its professional staff,
Toby Krawitz, to organize a
bereavement group. Posters
placed on each floor of the
building resulted in a group of
20 people who assembled
ready to begin the discussion
group at the appointed time.
Toby, a social worker, led
the group which was composed
of both men and women. They
discussed death and dying
openly. Toby asked questions:
Do we fear death or do we fear
dying more? Is it the fear of
pain that frightens us? Can we
face the topic of death openly?
Participants were told to use
each day and to appreciate
each day and leave with no
regrets. They also learned a
saying that goes, "Those who
love life most, fear death
least." Dying, then, could not
be discussed without also
discussing living. And they
realized as well that anxiety
and stress, which can be caus-
ed by fear, are often expressed
as body pain, and none of them
wanted to live in pain. Each
group member had the oppor-
tunity to allay his or her fears,
to face truths, and to share
feelings.
As a result of this group
discussion, the participants
decided that they would like to
continue with a possible series
of meetings. At the next ses-
sion they would like to discuss
"Putting your House in
Order." Tampa Jewish Family
Services hopes to continue
with sessions including a
funeral director and a legal
services representative.
What Tampa Jewish Family
Services began as a bereave-
ment group for a specific situa-
tion has turned into a more
comprehensive service for the
residents of Jewish Towers.
"FLY-IN LEADERSHIP" Pictured above
are some of the Tampa Jewish Federation
campaign leaders who will participate in a
"Fly-In" program on Dec. 9 and 10 with

ship cabinet from around the country who will

Don't Play Games
With Your Finances
Playing the game of chance
with your financial matters is a
gamble few can afford you
may end up the loser.
For those interested in put-
ting their money to work, and
save dollars when Uncle Sam
comes calling in April, help is
on the way. Menorah Manor
Foundation and the Jewish
National Fund (JNF) are co-
sponsoring an educational
seminar entitled "Don't Leave
Your Money To Chance."
The program will feature
speakers from the business
community who will illustrate
how to make a substantial
charitable contribution and
save money at the same time.
It will be held at 5 p.m. on
Tuesday, December 1 at the
Sheraton Grand Hotel
(formerly the Lincoln Hotel),
at 4860 W. Kennedy Blvd.,
Tampa.
The free program will be
moderated by B. Terry Aid-
man, managing partner in the
accounting firm of Laventhol
& Horwath. A variety of
speakers will discuss bequests,
lead trusts, endowments and
planned giving. Those
speakers include Bruce H.
Bokor, of Johnson, Blakely,
Pope, Bokor, Ruppel and
Burns, talking on "Charitable
Giving A Horn of Plenty."
Stanley J. Abrams, of Karen
Kayemeth Leisrael, Inc., will
speak on "A Gift You Can Give
and Receive." Sanford Sher,
of Laventhol & Horwath will
explain "A Premium Return
For You."
There will be no solicitation
at this program. Hors d'oevres
and drinks will be served. For
additional information, contact
Menorah Manor Development
Director Jolene Shor at

Page 8 The Jewish Floridian of Tampa/Friday, November 27, 1987
Dear Janice:
My husband has a successful
business and has been doing
really well at it for the past
two years. Now he has decided
to open up a new branch in
another town. All I hear about
is the new store. I don't
understand why, when things
were finally going well, he has
to take this new risk. Why
can't he be satisfied with one
success?
Risky Business
Tampa Bay Jewish Singles
Council Addresses CJF
i

The focus was on "singles"
at the recent General
Assembly session of the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations at
the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami
Beach on November 19.
The Council of Jewish
Federations invited represen-
tatives from seven singles
groups across the country to
address the General Assembly
on the topic of "Integrating
Now Open
\ D'^sicns l^T
8
Singles into the Jewish
Community."
Among the groups selected
to present was Tampa Bay
Jewish Singles Council (TB-
JSC), represented by Dr.
Anschel 0. Weiss, director of
Tampa Jewish Family Ser-
vices, and Janice Perelman,
M.A., TJFS staff advisor to
the singles group. Each of the
seven presentations provided
individual models serving a
variety of communities. The
emphasis was on innovation
and individuality.
There was opportunity for
sharing following the presen-
tations as the speakers were
available to provide individual
consultation to members of the
audience .
Dear Risky Business:
Some people really enjoy
challenges and even get
bored when all is going well.
It sounds as though your
husband needs the
challenge of opening the se-
cond store to see if he can
do well in another area.
Since he has proven that he
can be successful at what he
does, why not try to relax
about it, and just let him try
his wings? When he goes on
and on about the business,
you may try to change the
subject, but don't count on
being successful at it if he is
really engrossed in his new
venture. After it takes off,
he is sure to come down to
earth again and be more at-
tentive to your needs.
Dear Janice:
My next-door neighbor is a
very pleasant person, but she
frequently pops over without
calling, and she certainly
chooses the most inopportune
times to visit, usually when I
have just sat down to watch
my favorite TV show. I like her
company, but at other times
than she chooses. I don't want
to hurt her feelings.
Tired Neighbor
Dear Tired Neighbor:
There are a variety of things
you can try. First, you can
model for her the way you
would like her to behave;
that is, call her before you
visit at her home to make
sure it's a good time for her.
Second, if she arrives unan-
nounced at a bad time, you
can say, "I'm really glad to
see you, but I was about to

The holidays are once again
upon us, ready to bestow good
cheer and love to all. At

Generation is going to make
sure we all take part in the
festivities.
As the newest group to join
our Menorah Manor Family,
the Next Generation is throw-
ing a Chanukah party to bring
young and old together in the
spirit of the holiday season.
Everyone is invited to bring
their families, friends and
significant others to Menorah
Manor Friday, December 11 at

ner. It is guaranteed to be an
evening of great fun, with
entertainment planned,
draedles and Chanukah gelt
abounding, and a gift ex-
change with the Residents.
There is a $3 charge for adults,
and children under 12 are free.
The evening will also feature
the dedication of the Next
Generation Wall, which will be
located in the Home's lobby,
across from the Founders
Wall. The next Generation
consists of sponsors under the
age of 45 who are concerned
with the issues of aging and
care of the elderly. The Next
Generation Wall will be adorn-
ed with plaques listing those
sponsors who have pledged
$5,000 (for couples; $2,500 for
singles) to the Home. Of the 48
plaques to be dedicated at the
Chanukah party, 19 represent
new or increased gifts,
resulting in a Next Generation
pledge.

of delicious food, great com-
pany and a grand time with
family and friends. Please call

NEW YORK (JTA) The
Anti-Defamation League of

argue against quotas and
"preferential" treatment in
the work place based on race,
gender or ethnicity, despite re-
cent amendments to its
longstanding policy of
opposition.
According to ADL officials
here, recent actions taken by
the agency's National Ex-
ecutive Committee represent
only "modifications" of the
organization's basic opposition
to quotas as a means of ensur-

By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel refrained from its
scheduled deportation Friday
of Palestinian activist
Mubarak Awad apparently to
avoid aggravating friction
with the Americans over his
case.
Awad, a Jerusalem-born
Palestinian, is a naturalized
American citizen. He went to
the United States in 1969 and
returned to Israel in 1985 to
found the Palestinian Center
for the Study of Non-Violent
Resistance, in East Jerusalem.
Awa, who never held Israeli
citizenship, was advised last
August that his status as a
resident alien was revoked.
The Interior Ministry refused
to extend his tourist visa,
which expired Friday, and was
about to issue the deportation
order.
Awad said he would not
leave the country voluntarily.
The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv
intervened on his behalf. In
Washington last Wednesday,
State Department spokesman
Charles Redman described
Awad as a "leading advocate
of change through non-
Leadership and

The Community Relations
Committee of the Tampa
Jewish Federation is conduc-
ting a special workshop,
"Leadership and Politics: How
to Interact Effectively with
Key Government Leaders in
Tallahassee and Washington."
This program will feature Al
Effrat, Florida Regional
Director, American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) and Bernie Fried-
man, Director, Government
Affairs, Florida Association of
Jewish Federations.
This special event will be
held at the Tampa Club on
Tuesday, December 1, at 7:30
a.m. It will conclude by 9:00
a.m. as not to interfere with
your work day. Please join in
this special workshop and en-

violence" who has "served as a
moderating influence in a
potentially volatile area."
The American position was
made even more clear when a
press conference held by Awad
here Wednesday to protest his
expulsion was attended by the
deputy U.S. consul general in
East Jerusalem, Edwin Cub-
bison. Cubbison publicly ex-
pressed hope Awad could be
allowed to remain.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry
claimed in a letter to the U.S.
Embassy that Awad did not
limit himself to non-violence,
but rather advocated
sabotage. Nevertheless, the
Friday deadline passed
without the Interior Ministry
issuing a deportation order.

A ministry spokesperson
said later that it hoped that
Awad, "an advocate of non-
violence and observance of the
law, will abide by the law and
leave."
Instead, Awad sought sup-
port Saturday at Kol
Haneshama, a Reform
synagogue in the Baka quarter
of Jerusalem, where many of
the congregants are American
Jews who have immigrated to
Israel.
He was invited by its rabbi,
Levi Weiman-Kelman, who
heard of Awad's plans to visit
a mosque, a church and a
synagogue to plead his cause.
