No Menorah At City Hall
By AUDREY HAUBENSTOCK
Several weeks ago the Tampa Tribune reported
stories about the request from.Rabbi Yossie
Dubrowski, executive director of Chabad
Lubavitch of Tampa, to display and light the
Chanukah menorah at City Hall Plaza beginning
with the lighting of the first candle on Dec. 15 and
continuing through Dec. 22. This request was
denied.
On Dec. 4 the City of Tampa received a summons
in a civil action from the United States District
Court, Chabad Lubavitch of Tampa, Inc. versus the
City of Tampa. Chabad Lubavitch claims that ban-
ning the display of the menorah violates their con-
stitutional rights of expression. The date of the
hearing had been set at the time this article was
written.
According to Gary Alter, executive vice presi-
dent of the Tampa Jewish Federation at a meeting
two years ago with Rabbi Dubrowski and represen-
tatives of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith and the Tampa Jewish Federation Com-
munity Relations Committee community leader-
ship, an attempt was made to encourage Chabad
Lubavitch to place the menorah in a prominently
located area that was not public property, such as
the NCNB Plaza or TECO Plaza. Help was offered
in securing these locations but the offer was re-
jected in favor of placing the menorah on public
property. A similar request was made again this
year but was also rejected.
When Rabbi H. David Rose, chairman of the
Tampa Jewish Federation CRC was contacted he
stated that, "All members of the Community Rela-
tions Committee unanimously support the National
Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council
(NJCRAC) position which holds that the best in-
terests of Jewish communities are served by the
distinct separation of church and state. We believe
that no symbols, Jewish or non-Jewish, should be
erected on public property."
The Joint Program Plan of NJCRAC, is the in-
strument througn which the voluntary association
of Jewish community relations agencies jointly
determine the issues of concern, what positions
they should take on these issues, and how they can
most effectively carry out those positions.
NJCRAC has long held the position that the
publicly supported displays of religious symbols,
accompanied by other objects or standing alone,
violate the Establishment Clause of the First
Amendment.
As president of the Tampa Rabbinic Association
Rabbi Rose stated that all the rabbis, except one,
strongly feel all religious symbols should be kept
out of the public sector, including the school
system. The rabbis wish a compromise could have
been reached before this issue reached the public
sector.
Mark Friedman of the American Jewish Con-
gress in Miami replied to a telephone call that they
were waiting to see the official complaint papers
and then would make a determination if they
should intervene in the case for the City of Tampa.
They will make the case if it meets the re-
quirements that the menorah is a religious symbol
and not a secular symbol.
Friedman said, "We believe that it is clearly un-
constitutional, and we would hold the position if
the symbol were a cross or a creche. The Lubavitch
argue that this is not a Jewish issue, but an issue of

By CAROLE HENNING
The festival of Chanukah
honors an event that took
place in the ancient world in
the year 164 BCE.
In that ancient time, the
Greeks controlled most of the
known world. Their
philosophy, their art and their
pagan religion dominated all.
The rules of the ancient world
were simple. Lands were con-
quered, all valuables taken,
people subjugated (a portion
were slaughtered, a portion
enslaved and the remainder
humiliated). Fear ruled. The
people of Judea had gotten us-
ed to conquest. Domination by
the Greeks was not important.
Although the Jews still wor-
shipped their "One God," the
Greeks had the best of
everything. They had money,
power, culture, art. They
seduced the young people with
their glittering possessions
and introduced pagan ways in-
to the Jewish rituals.
A small group of "radicals"
objected to the seduction of
the Jews by the Greek culture.
The radicals rebelled by at-
tacking those Jews who acted
in complicity with the Greek
rulers. Antiochus, the Greek
king reacted by indiscriminate-
ly slaughtering a portion of the
population, and inviting
pagans to Jerusalem to dilute
the Jewish population. But
then he went a little further,
he outlawed the Jewish Sab-
bath and the ritual of circumci-
sion. Anger smoldered. When
a Greek official tried to make
an old Jewish priest sacrifice
to the Greek Gods, the anger
exploded.
Antiochus assumed that this
was just a rebellion of zealots.
He sent in a special combat
unit and figured it would be
over in a matter of weeks. But
instead of a victory, the Greek
forces were smashed. Instead
of a small group of rebels, the
entire population of Judea was
in revolt. Antiochus couldn't
afford this kind of publicity
now. The Romans to the west
were becoming a problem.
These Jews had to be crushed
and crushed quickly. An-
tiochus sent in a huge army.
The army marched through
Jerusalem confident of vie-
Chanukah
tory. But in battle after battle,
the Greeks lost retreating
back. In 164 BCE the city of
Jerusalem fell to the Jewish
forces. The Holy Temple had
been ransacked by the Greeks.
Pagan rites had been con-
ducted on Holy ground. The
floors and walls of the Temple
splattered with the blood and
guts of pagan sacrifice. The
eight days of cleaning and
^dedication of the Holy Tem-
ple forms the basis of the Holi-
day of Chanukah.
not prepared to deal with
people empowered by an i and dedicated to a god. SuS
people had no fear. Ancient
warfare depended on fear.
But, Chanukah, only in its
simplist sense, is a war vic-
tory. This war was unlike any
of the wars of the ancient
world. The Jews fought for an
idea and they fought for
religion, unheard of in those
days. The ancient world was
For 25 years, the war raged
on. The sands of Judea soaked
with the blood of Jews and
Greeks. With final victory the
Jews secured for the future
the perpetuation of a religion
based on morality and the
belief in One God.
The course of history was
changed. The ancient world
had experienced its first Holy
war fought relentlessly,
fearlessly.
The significance of
Chanukah is a people's dedica-
tion to the power of an idea
and to their unwavering faith
in One God.

A Chanukah Message
From RABBI
STEVEN J. KAPLAN
Hillel Jewish Student Center
Reconstructioniat
Community Charurah
Chanukah is the Festival of
Lights. As a child I have fond
memories of lighting the
Chanukiah, receiving
Chanukah Gelt, doing the
same skit at Hebrew Day
School and eating latkes (with
sour cream ... who uses
applesauce?!)
As a Rabbi I have come to
almost dread this holiday. Not
due to the expected problems I
anticipated as a Jewish parent
in December, with Christmas
and all that entails. I can live
with that. What I dread are my
own feelings of frustration,
seeing Jewish households with
Christmas trees, Christmas
lights and/or Chanukah
bushes. Often the rationaliza-
tions families use are, "it's not
religious symbol, besides,
him he couldn't sit on Santa's
lap. A hundred kids were lined
up! They're too young to
understand anyway!"
My response to these
statements usually take the
form of, "if Christmas, a most
holy day of Christianity, has
become too commercial, it's
Christianity's problem, not
Judaism's. It's still a Christian
symbol of a Christian Holy
Day." To the Santa issue, I
state, "A child is not too young
to* associate the Santa ex-
perience to a pleasurable feel-
ing. Why begin a habit? No
child ever died by not sitting
on the lap of a fat man in a red
suit with a long beard!"
What is my point? The word
Chanukah means rededication.
Tied in with rededication is a
sense of pride in oneself, one's
roots, one's traditions. It is
foolish to join fraternity "A" if
you wish to use the rituals of
fraternity "B." If you want

with one difference. Rather
than leave the faith as in the
fraternity example, why not
rededicate ourselves to it?
Why not learn to talk with
our children on issues we have
discomfort with, or find con-
fusing? Why not share in the
pride of lighting candles, sing-
ing Jewish songs and eating
special foods? Why not feel
good about being a Jew at
whatever level of observance
you choose and walk with head
held high, practicing Jewish
customs?
Chanukas status is that of a
minor holiday. Yet, if this con-
cept of rededication can pro-
mpt us to have naches in our
heritage, if this concept can
rekindle a flame in us allowing
us to kvell rather than shy
away from our tradition, this
minor holiday's status is
elevated ten-fold.

Chanukah Soars To New Heights
By DIANE TINDELL
And TALI BOBO
Peals of laughter, hustle and
shuffle of small feet, and the
high level of excitement
resonate throughout the halls
of Hillel on "rehearsal days."
What appears to be chaos on
this particular day will be
transformed into a spectacular
Chanukah performance. On
Dec. 13, at 2 p.m. in the JCC
Auditorium, the HS of Tampa
will bring in the Holiday
festivities with two very
special Chanukah Plays. They
will be directed by Mary
Goldman and Sylvia Sutton.
Mary Goldman is returning
to direct her third Hillel
players production. "The Lit-
tlest Maccabee" is a delightful
retelling of the Chanukah,
dedication of the temple. The
people of the village hurry to
the temple to help Judah Mac-
cabee clean and decorate it
after his victory over the
Syrians. When there is no oil
for lighting the menorah, Ben-
jamin (the littlest maccabee)
saves the day.
The young cast of 16 Hillel
students (Kindergarten
through third grade), is led by
five-year-old Bryan Blackburn
as Benjamin. Contributing to
the constant-commotion are
"veterans" Ellen Stenzler,
Brett Gomberg, Mira and Nili
Peled as well as a host of
others.
Just half way through
rehearsals, the enthusiastic
players have learned their
lines, a Chanukah poem, and
are polishing the dance steps
for Cherkassiya and of course
everyone has learned
maoztzur.
Mary can be seen around
Hillel and the JCC most of the
year. She has taught creative
dramatics at second home for
three years and is on the staff
of JCC summer camp as drama
camp, among many other ac-
tivities. Last year's colorful
"Chanukah in Oz" and rollick-
ing "Gingerbread House" in-
volved more than 50 Hillel
students and 100 parents too!
"There is a fine line between
creativity and chaos," says
Mrs. Goldman." Children's
theater is a process which
must include freedom and in-
teraction as it develops, you
guide it toward a goal, which
generally, is a production for
an audience. This becomes
somewhat of a paradox, it
seems.
The interaction, self-
expression and socialization
build the framework for a
IMC

positive drama experience for
the children. It is vital to the
children's self-concept and self
esteem.
"Spontaneity is really what
it's all about," she feels. Wat-
ching her eyes twinkle as she
directs each little "star," you
become aware of her vitality at
work. The bubbly little Meryl
Streep's and Dustin Hoffman's
eagerly focus their 16 sets of
eyes upon Mary awaiting their
cue ... and soon the magic
begins...
"The Chanukah Show" is a
beautiful 30 minute play about
silence. It's a story about a
woman named Deborah
Cohen, who dies and goes to
heaven just before the first
Chanukah candle is lit. Her
life's struggles are told as she
awaits heavenly judgement.
She will be inscribed in the
Good Book immediately
because of her humbleness,
gentleness, and silence during
her life; despite her obstacles.
The message is clear and
profound.
The cast of Ms. Sutton's play
consists of students from
grades four to 8. They have
participated in more ways than
just acting. They have helped
with the writing, costumes,
and most of all their great en-
thusiasm. The children know
that Ms. Sutton is their direc-
tor as well as a friend. She
believes in treating the cast
with respect and
professionalism.
Ms. Sutton has encouraged
the children to feel good about
themselves by appreciating
what each person has to offer.

"Participating in school
drama is one of the greatest
ways to build confidence and
self-esteem," said Ms. Sutton.
When a child is given an outlet
for self-expression, he/she
learns so much about
understanding feelings, at-
titudes and ways that may be
different from his own. This
enables a child to build his own
sense of character, determina-
tion, discipline and respect.
If your child is a ham and
wants to get involved in ac-
ting, Ms. Sutton believes that
parents should find a school
that shys away from just put-
ting on plays. There is a pro-
cess involved in studying the
craft of acting, and its that
process that enables children
to unfold their creativity, sen-
sitivity, and talent.
New to Hillel, the Chanukah
play is Ms. Sutton's first pro-
ject at Hillel. A native of Tam-
pa, she has an extensive career
in acting-covering stage, com-
mercial voice-overs, television
and films. Ms. Sutton has
taught acting to students of all
ages and most recently opened
Tampa School of Acting. In
the future, she hopes to par-
ticipate in other school
projects!
Teaching children the ex-
ploration of their feelings of
self-worth and achieving goals
through the craft of acting are
only two of the many reasons
that we are so fortunate to
have Sylvia with us!

Be On Your Toes
With Women's Wednesday
Women's Wednesday is
back! Co-Chairmen Vicki Paul
and Sharon Siegel have plann-
ed this year's program to be an
experience to remember.
"Women's Division strongly
endorses making continuing
Jewish education a priority
and Women's Wednesday
plans to fulfill this goal," com-
mented Paul. The program
scheduled for Wednesday, Jan.
6, at the Harbor Island Hotel
will feature Professor Larry
Berger, who recently returned
from a Fulbright grant year in
Jerusalem. During his tenure
in Israel, Professor Berger had
an opportunity to initiate a
course on the history of dance
in the 20th century at the
Rubin Academy of Music and
Dance in Jerusalem. In addi-
tion to his teaching, Berger
learned a great deal about
Israeli culture and society. At
the Jan. 6 program, Berger
will sahre his personal ex-
periences from a cultural
viewpoint.
"Examining a segment of
Israel's society is especially
timely for our program since
Israel will be celebrating its
40th anniversary this year,"
commented Siegel. "We en-
courage all women and
spouses to attend," Siegel
added.
If you are looking for a mor-
ning of fun, socializing, educa-
tion and good food, put
Women's Wednesday on your
calendars. The program beings
at 10 a.m. and the cost is $20
per person. Please RSVP to
the Tampa Jewish Federation
875-1618, by Dec. 19.

These Boots Were Made For Walking
Menorah Manor's new Walk-
ing Club is a definite hit among
Menorah Manor Residents,
especially with centenarian
Jacob Marx.
"I don't want to sit. I don't
want to sleep. I want to walk,"
says Mr. Marx, who is always
prompt for the Tuesday morn-
ing jaunts. "You know, I don't
like staying inside all the time.
I sit outside three, four hours a
day."
The Walking Club was form-
ed over two months ago for a
variety of reasons. Walking is
a fine form of exercise, and it
enables Residents to spend
time outside, where they can
socialize with other Residents.
"Mainly, it's good for them,"
said Ray Teasdale, activity
therapist, who initiated the
program. "Most of the elderly
have walked for a lot of years,
and when they enter a nursing
home, they stop."
"When I was young they
for fKU rtcipe book stnd adfeddttttcd stomped envelope
to <3ok, Dept F, 905 McDoneW Avenue, iroohlvn. NV 118
didn't have elevators. I walk-
ed," Mr. Marx said em-
phatically. "It keeps me young
and healthy."
Although they are supervis-
ed, walking gives the
Residents freedom and the op-
portunity to do something on
their own.
"They feel so good about
themselves because they are
doing it on their own, and
aren't being pushed," said
Ray. "It gives them self-
confidence."
Located in the Activities
room is the "Walking Club
Wall of Fame" poster, listing
Residents who participate in
the program. They are:
Charles Friedman, Miriam
Israel, Jacob Marx, Sarah
Shapiro, Doris Speilberg,
Julius Buckman, Ida Cutler,
Sara Schniderman, Mary
Levine, Irene Fiedler, and
Charlie Rosenvaig.
Keep up the good work!
Anyone interested in becom-
ing a Menorah Manor
volunteer to help with ac-
tivities such as the Walking
Club, please call Director of
Volunteers and Activities
Renee Krosner at 345-2775.

Dr. Israel Eldad (left) with Mrs. Shlomo Argov, wife of the former
Israeli diplomat, and Eryk Spektor, chairman of the Jabotinsky
Foundation, at the 1987 'Defender of Jerusalem Award'
ceremonies, held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City
on Oct. 28. Dr. Eldad, a principal architect of the State of Israel,
and Shlomo Argov, a former Israeli Ambassador to Great Bri-
tain who was seriously wounded in a terrorist attack in London
in 1982, are two of this year's recipients. The others are: former
Soviet dissident Ida Nudel and the late civil rights leader Bayard
Rustin. In memory of Mr. Rustin, who died in August 1987, a
scholarship that will provide black students with the opportunity
to study in Israel was established by the Jabotinsky Foundation.
The $100,000 prize has been awarded by the Jabotinsky Founda-
tion since 198S to people who have stood up in defense of Jewish
rights.

Let 's get ready for Chanukah
We'll all have lots of fun
With holiday songs and dreidels too
And laikes for everyone!
And that's just what's happening at the Preschool these days.
We are all getting ready for Chanukah! The children are learn-
ing the story of Chanukah and enjoying the holiday traditions
through art, music, cooking and stories. Some of the classroom
activities include cooking latkes, cookies, yummy Chanukah gelt,
constructing Menorahs, table centerpieces and Judah Maccabee
shields, designing our own Chanukah gifts and wrapping paper,
and dreidel lacing cards. Two wonderful parties are planned to
complete our Chanukah festivities. Each Preschool class will
celebrate with Moms and Dads special foods and gifts will
highlight this event. In addition, the entire Jewish Community
Center will celebrate together at the Family Chanukah Festival
on Wednesday evening, Dec. 16 at the North Branch. Please be
sure to attend and join in the fun and festivities of the holiday.
Lest we forget November .. .
We held our first open Parent Association Meeting ..
Preschool teachers had an evening workshop .
We had parent-teacher conference day a positive, enlighten-
ing experience for all ..
Classes went on field trips to see "The Animal," Seminole In-
dian Reservation, and Alessi's Farmer's Market. .
We received notice of a new seatbelt law: All three year olds
(and younger) must be in carseats not just seatbelts when we
go on our field trips! Many thanks to all the parents who have
cooperated when we've needed extra carseats and extra
drivers. .
Our Chanukah giftwrap fundraiser began. Some items are still
available. Call for Chanukah paper, bows, etc... .
We celebrated Thanksgiving with wonderful feasts of muffins,
pumpkin pudding, fruit salad, pumpkin bread and vegetable
soup. Placemats, teepees, and centerpieces adorned the tables.
Headdresses and pilgrim hats adorned our children. A very
special thanks to the teachers for all their hard work in prepar-
ing for these feasts and to the terrific mothers who helped us set
up and clean up.

NEW
TODDLER GYM
The Jewish Community Center is expanding its Moms and Tots
program with our new Toddler Gym class. This program of move-
ment education for the young child and Mom and Dad is designed
to:
1. Enhance the natural motor skills of the young child.
2. Develop increased flexibility, coordination and strength.
3. Stimulate and reinforce learning and language development
principles through movement.
4. Work on balance, body movement, gross motor skills and
socialization.
5. Provide parent and child with the pleasure of sharing move-
ment experiences.
These goals will be attained through the use of special equip-
ment such as balance beam, climbing apparatus, tunnel, slide,
mini-trampoline, parachute, balls, hoops, musical, instruments,
bean bags and more.
The one hour class will consist of a combination of open gym
time, circle time (songs and movements, circle games, exercises)
special attention on individual equipment. All age-appropriate for
the very young child. (Song sheets will be provided so you can suc-
cessfully sing with your child at home.)
Toddler Gym will be taught by Debbie Saavedra who has recent-
ly joined our staff from Miami. Debbie ran the Mommy and Me
program at Temple Beth Am in Miami and Play Activities (for
children under 2) at Miami Dade Community College before mov-
ing to Tampa.

Volunteer Of The Month
Danny Salin has been a member of the JCC since 1969.
He was first involved with the Food Co-op, but he gradually
began donating his time to other Center activities. In 1979

Danny has also worked with the Youth Program,
transporting children of all ages to different activities and
field trips in the area.
He is always here to lend a helping hand to anyone who
needs it, and he works very hard to support the Center.

Jewish Endowments Reach $1.7 Billion
Friday, December 11,1987/The, Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 11
TOP The big endowment
news at the CJF General
Assembly in Miami was that
the total holdings for all
Federation endowment foun-
dations in the U.S. and Canada
has (as of June 30) reached a
total of $1,744 billion. It is an-
ticipated that by Dec. 31 this
year, that figure should ap-
proach $2 billion.
Equally exciting is the fact
that over $235 million in
grants were distributed from
these foundations in 1986-87.
To put that into perspective,
only ten years ago, when CJF
started doing annual surveys
on foundation assets, the com-
bined assets totaled about
$235 million.
CJF has set a goal of raising
$10 billion in endowments by
the year 2000. If current ratios
of assets to grants are main-
tained, approximately $1.5
billion in grants will be
distributed, equaling the
amount raised in Federation
annual giving campaigns this
year.
The TOP Jewish Foundation
reported $7.7 million in total
assets as of June 30. This is
broken down into the following
assets for each community:
Tampa $1,942,280
Orlando $2,429,279
Pinellas $2,757,830
(Managed Funds-$ 587,311)
For comparison purposes,
here are the figures for some
other communities:

'In Whose Name, Amen' A Huge Success
The 2nd Annual Joint Pro-
gram between the Young
Adult Division and the
Business and Professional
Women's Network of the Tam-
pa Jewish Federation titled
"In Whose Name, Amen" pro-
ved to be a very thought pro-
voking and stimulating learn-
ing experience for the 50 plus
attendees. The topic covered
the many aspects within the
framework of the relationship
between separation of Church
and State.
Led by moderator Jim Fried,
co-chairmen of the Young
Adult Division's Social Action
Committee, the far reaching
discussions included the
Honorable Linda Saul-Sena,
Tampa City Council member
(at large, District 3); Alice K.
Nelson, Esquire, a local civil
rights attorney; and Dr.
Nathan Katz, PhD, Associate
Professor of Religious Studies
at the University of South
Florida.
The first speaker, Dr. Katz,
spoke about the world perspec-
tive of church versus state
relationships. The different
solutions to such issues as
basically exemplified in three
ways:
1. e.g., the Soviet Union
uses suppressive means to con-
trol their religious state
environment;
2. e.g., India supports and
cultivates such interaction;

3. the U.S. practices ex-
treme neutrality in such areas.
Ms. Nelson, a Tampa at-
torney, helped put this rela-
tionship of Church versus
State in a legal and constitu-
tional perspective. The
Supreme Court's decisions
regarding the free exercise of
religion as state in the Con-
stitution are constantly under
stress by both secular and non-
secular forces.
Ms. Saul-Sena, the final
speaker, related her own ex-
periences in trying to get the
City Council of Tampa to adopt
a neutral prayer before each
council session. The significant
lack of support for this in-
itiative shows further the en-
croachment that religious in-
fluences are having on govern-
mental affairs.
The program was well
received and gave each partici-
pant a better understanding of
the historic, legal and practical
relationship between the
issues regarding Church ver-
sus State.

With the intervention of
Providence, a lease was signed
just two days before Rosh

simultaneously a Torah was
flown in from Miami. A
sizeable gathering of young

together to usher in the New
Year.
As a contemporary, tradi-

No Menorah
Continued from Page 1
what is acceptable according
to the hirst Amendment.
If we accept the Lubavitch
argument that the menorah is
just a secular symbol, as a
Christmas tree is a secular
symbol, is that what we really
want? Do we as Jews really
mean the menorah to be
regarded as just another
secular symbol?
"I suggest that the strategy
of placing the menorah in
public places is a giant step
backwards for the Jewish com-
munity. Using the argument of
equal time we run the risk of
haying our government
facilities looking like religious
trinket stores.
In an interview with Arthur
Teitelbaum, ADL Southern
area director in Miami he said,
"ADL believes that the gran-
ting of permission to place a
menorah on public property is
a clear violation of the Con-
stitutional mandate of church-
state separation. This
menorah then violates all three
constitutional tests applied to
such cases, it unconstitutional-
ly entangles government in
religion; its primary purpose is
religious rather than secular;
and in practice it has the effect
of advancing religion, where
the Constihition commands
government to be neutral with
regard to religion, neither ad-
vancing it or prohibiting its
free exercise."
"We find it unfortunate and
troublesome that the
Lubavitch insist on engaging
in symbol wars. It is witn good
reason that the mainstream of
Jewish communities is deeply
committed to the concept of
church-state separation.
Teitelbaum added, "We
have had plenty of experiences
in history that have
demonstrated how serious can
be the problems when govern-
ment is seen to endorse one or
another religion. It is distress-
ing to note that the Lubavitch
movement has a record of
misleading public officials by
claiming that the menorah is
not a religious symbol."
When Rabbi Dubrowski of
Chabad Lubavitch was con-
tacted by The Jewish Flori-
dian he stated that he had no
comments.

banking for seniors
