Super Sunday 988
By TALI BOBO
And
KIM MILLER
On March 20, the Tampa
Jewish Federation is schedul-
ing the annual phone-a-thon
for raising much needed funds
for the United Jewish Appeal.
This year volunteers will be
gathering for an Olympic style
Super Sunday at the Jewish
Community Cener. We need
all the volunteers to help con-
tact as many households as
possible, on Sunday and for
follow-up phoning during
Super Week.
Last year more than
$100,000 was raised by the
Federation and over 200
volunteers devoted their time
and energy to participate in
our community's efforts. With
your help and enthusiasm we
are striving to increase those
numbers and set new records
of successful fund-raising in
1988.
Child care will be available
for children who are two years
and above, and dinner and
refreshments will be catered.
So come, pledge, and get con-
nected to our Jewish communi-
ty and the progress and well
being of the Jewish people.
Remember, the only ring not
connected is YOU, so get in-
volved with SUPER
SUNDAY!

come true for the individual
bidder as well as the Jewish
Community Center."

Center at 872-4451.
Sol Ribner, compared the
strength and nature of the
commitment of those with
"intensive" and "less inten-
sive" Jewish educations. In
both groups, the majority of
the respondents were conser-
vative Jews.
The intensive group was bet-
ter able to integrate Jewish ex-
periences into secular life.
They belonged to more Jewish
organizations, contributed
more heavily to Jewish causes,
and were more likely to have
visited Israel than the less in-
tensive group. They were
significantly more likely to
make Judaism an integral part
of their family lives, and show-
ed greater interest in their
children's future commitment.
Contrary to widespread
belief, the hours spent at
Jewish studies did not adverse-
ly affect general educational
achievements. Ninety-four
percent of the intensive groups
graduated from college, com-
pared to 72 percent of those
with a less intensive Jewish
education. Ninety-five percent
of the intensive group were in
professional or managerial
positions.

Volunteers for Israel Join JNF
in Campaign To Replant Destroyed Forests in Israel
The Jewish National Fund of
America and Volunteers for
Israel recently joined forces in
an effort to replant Israel's
forests devastated by fire in
1987.
"JNF is extremely fortunate
to enlist the aid of Volunteers
for Israel volunteers from
throughout the world to aid
our reafforestation efforts in
Israel," said Dr. Joseph P.
Sternstein, JNF president. He
continued, "Volunteers for
Israel is expressing its great
love for Israel's land through
its determination to offer us
essential aid in this matter of
national urgency."
Sampson Giat, Volunteers
for Israel president, stated,
"Volunteers for Israel wishes
to increase its moral support
for Israel at such a critical
time, when its image in world
press is particularly low. In
this spirit, we are most happy
to cooperate with JNF in help-
ing to rehabilitate those
forests in Israel devastated by
fire. In many cases, the con-
flagrations were caused by
politically-motivated arson, an
insidious form of terrorism."
Mr. Giat explained that
through the promotion of
volunteer work to rebuild
Israel's forests, the
JNF/Volunteers for Israel
joint venture seeks to
strengthen the unity of the
Diaspora with the land and
people of Israel.
JNF recently embarked on a
$10 million national campaign
to meet Israel's increased
firefighting needs, including
the development of advanced
means of fire prevention and
detection. Studies show that
Israel experienced an average
of 925 fires per year, for the
past 10 years. The JNF cam-
paign gained greater urgency
following events on July 29,
1987, when four different fires
near Jerusalem ravaged 1,150
acres of forests, including
80,000 trees, at damage cur-
rently estimated in excess of
$5 million.
Consultations between JNF
and U.S. Department of
Agriculture officials resulted
in a task force being sent to
Israel in December 1987 to
study the Jewish state's fire-
fighting needs. Mike Rogers,
forest supervisor, Cleveland
National Forest, and leader of
the task force, recently
presented the group's findings
at JNF's All Day Conference
in Washington, D.C. At the
event, a Citation of Apprecia-
tion was presented to "Mic"
Amicarella, director of the
Fire and Aviation Manage-
ment Division of the USDA
Forest Service.

gram, contact Volunteers for
Israel, 40 Worth Street, Rm.

reclamation and the building
of roads, parks and recreation
areas in Israel.

Judges and Lawyers Mission to Israel on June 29
The Honorable Jacob D.
Fuchsberg, former New York
Supreme Court justice and
senior partner of the Jacob D.
Fuchsberg law firm, will lead

sions director, "to have Judge
Fuchsberg, an accomplished

sion, lead our annual Judges

legal figures, including a
reception with government of-
ficials; special Fourth of July
ceremonies at the American
Independence Park near
Jerusalem; a visit to "The
Center for the Fallen In-
telligence Community," and a
unique archeological tour and
seminar.
Judge Fuchsberg served
nine years on New York
State's highest court. He has
been a principle force behind
the development and growth
of many legal organizations,
including The Association of
Trial Lawyers of America, The
National Institute of Trial Ad-
vocacy, The Roscoe Pound
American Trial Lawyers
Foundation, The U.S. Legal
Services Program (OEO), Trial
Magazine, New York Universi-
ty and Touro Law Schools and
the Inter-Professional Com-
mittee of Doctors and Lawyers
of New York. Judge
Fuchsberg has lectured at
almost every law school in the
U.S.
He has provided leadership
to such diverse activities as the
movement for Soviet Jewry;
the founding of the Jewish
Community Center of Har-
rison, NY; archaeological ex-
plorations of Israel's Negev
and negotiating the freeing of
hundreds of Moroccan Jews at
the behest of David Ben-
Gurion.

Friday, March 18, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 3
After nine-and-a-half years
as the professional leader of
the Tampa Jewish Federation,
I have agreed to write a col-
umn (on a monthly basis,
possibly bi-weekly) of some of
my thoughts and the issues
confronting our Tampa Jewish
community. How it will turn
out I do not know but
your thoughts and input will be
most welcome. After all this
is your community this is
your newspaper and we do
want to hear from you.
Gary S. Alter
It is perhaps most fitting that this first column deals with
Super Sunday, which occurs this weekend. Super Sunday is both
a blessing and a curse. Let me explain. It does provide the
Federation an opportunity to reach out to approximately 2,500
families and individuals to invite them to join the over 2,500 cur-
rent contributors to our annual community campaign.
What it does not do is allow us the opportunity to meet with
each and every Jewish individual in our community face to face
and explain in person the tremendous needs we are asked to
meet here in Tampa and throughout the world. A telephone call
does not make the personal contact and connection that we
would like to develop with the Jewish community. It has been
stated that the invention of the telephone has not been an aid to
fundraising.
Nevertheless, Super Sunday has raised millions of dollars for
Jewish communities throughout the United States. Here in Tam-
pa, from a monetary point of view, we also have been very suc-
cessful. But I know we can do better. Perhaps next year we will
have ten times the number of campaign workers so that we can
make the personal contacts. When your telephone rings this
Sunday, answer cheerfully, answer positively, and understand
that our desire is to meet with you in person maybe you too
will become involved in our efforts to raise the level of commit-
ment and Jewish consciousness.
Shalom.

SPor%ftion...ErmaRuffkegg
By Audrey Haubenstock
Being a charter member of a
new congregation can be ex-
citing, rewarding, and a lot of
hard work, but leaving town
and returning to an establish-
ed congregation brought an
overwhelming feeling of ac-
complishment to Erma Ruf-
fkess, the president of Con-
gregation Kol Ami.
"It is exciting being presi-
dent and reaping the benefits
of hard working predecessors.
This is a year of making an im-
pact on the community. After
the first eight years we are
again in the process of a
building drive. Our expansion
started with a Sponsor's cam-
paign which Bill Kalish and
Marc Perkins co-chaired. Our
first step was redesigning the
rabbi's and administrative of-
fices," said Ruffkess.
Besides the offices the Spon-
sor's campaign, with a com-
mitment over a five year span,
has reduced the mortgage on
the building, allowed for
capital improvements, and the
renovation of the sanctuary.
The "living menorah"
honoring the 18 original spon-
sors of Congregation Kol Ami
will soon be in place in the lob-
by. The second phase will put
the new sanctuary chairs in
place.
Erma's involvement with
the congregation at the very
beginning was to develop the
Religious School with Helene
Silverman, as they taught
classes and Hebrew. Now the
Religious School is an integral
part of the synagogue.
Erma Ruffkess
we are deeply disappointed
and saddened by the fact that
David and Natalie Rose will be
leaving in the summer, the
change will provide us with the
opportunity of taking stock
and redefining our goals and
aspirations. We will continue
to strive for that illusive con-
tinuity and stability through
the commitment of our strong
leadership. Rabbi Rose has
given this congregation a
sense of community, he has
made us a truly viable
synagogue."
This year the emphasis has
been on adult education, ex-
plained Ruffkess. There is a
Learner's Minyon, which takes
place one half hour before
Saturday morning services,
teaching the aspects of prayer
in the service; a Sunday morn-
ing "Breakfast Series"; and a
"Passover without Panic"
workshop.
At this time there is not a
formal confirmation class but
with expanded faculty that
could change. The classes
Aleph through Hey (the
Bar/Bat Mitzvah class) meet
three times a week and the
students conduct either Friday
evening or Shabbat services
during the year, with parents
preparing the Oneg Shabbat or
the Kiddush luncheon.
The Religious School has an
annual Shabbaton where the
weekend revolves around a
theme, this year's theme is the
prophets, and where the
students learn through study
and drama.
During the six months that
Erma has been charged with
the presidency there are some
forced changes that are taking
place within the congregation.
Said Ruffkess, "Although
"I am excited about the
Joint Basic Judaism course
which is sponsored by Con-
gregations Kol Ami, Rodeph
Sholom, and Schaarai Zedek.
The participants are pursuing
their quest for Judaic
knowledge. The classes meet
each week in the respective
synagogues and about once a
month together. I find this a
positive step in erasing any
polarization of our Tampa
community," said Erma.
She continued, "Since we
are a new congregation we de-
pend on the volunteer services
of our congregants. I see a

"I'm happy to contribute to
such a facility as Menorah
Manor, which has become
known around the country as a
quality nursing home,"
Handler, 25, said. "Hopefully,
in a short time, I will be involv-
ed with all facets of Menorah
Manor's operation on a day to
day basis."
Currently overseeing En-
vironmental Services and the
business side of Administra-
tion, Handler said he will also
act as a liaison between Ex-
ecutive Director Ed Vinocur
and the staff.
"I want to act as a resource
for the staff, and to be
available to them and give sup-
port when needed," he said.
Handler has been deeply in-
volved in the Jewish faith from
a young age. He attended
Jewish primary schools, and
participated in two work study
programs in Israel, where he
learned Hebrew, worked on a
kibbutz, and met his wife,
Cassi.
He received his bachelor
degree from the University of
Cincinnati School of Social
Work, and is a graduate of an
intense course study in Nurs-
ing Home Amdinistration
from Ohio State University.
Handler hopes to share his ex-
tensive background in social
work with the staff and
Residents of Menorah Manor,
and believes it will prove to be
an asset in helping depart-
ments work together as a
cohesive unit.
Handler also believes that
staff attitudes can affect
Residents in a positive
manner.
"We have a future to look
forward to," he said. "What
we have to do here at Menorah
Manor is instill in them that
there is a future ... that
they've got tomorrow to look
forward to, and we can do it
through activities and through
nursing."
Related work experience in-
cludes a nine-month internship
with Jewish Family Services,
coordinating programs and
seminars at the Interfaith
Holocaust Foundation of Cin-
cinnati, and teaching Hebrew,
Judaic History and culture to
primary school students.
How should a Jewish author
relate to what is currently hap-
pening in Israel? Night after
night television pictures show
us Israeli soldiers chasing
Arab youngsters. They tell us
about the oppression, anger,
hopelessness, and futility of
the young Palestinians, almost
to the point of justifying their
violence.
Then they ask us, "How can
you, the Jewish intellectuals,
live with this?"
There is hardly a discussion
without the Israel-Arab con-
flict being at the center with
Israel being put-down or in-
sulted. In short, Israel is ex-
periencing bad press. Of late,
it is far more popular to de-
nounce her.
Clearly, my popularity in
certain circles has declined.
The reason is very simple I
refuse to blame Israel. I have
always refused. As a man liv-
ing in the Diaspora, I believe I
owe something to Israel; to
stand at her side and identify
with her. Always.
There are those who do not
like this. Let it be. Every man
has a right to his "quirk." My
"quirk" is loyalty to Israel.
Since the current distur-
bances in the West Bank and
Gaza, newspapers and televi-
sion stations have tried to get
me to denounce Israel's
policies. This is what I answer,
"Of course I follow the events
with anxiety, but I have faith
in Israel because I have faith in
her humanity."
By ELIE WIESEL
On French television I
declared, "Compared to other
countries, Israel need not be
ashamed, and she is not in
need of lessons from anyone.
After all, who is judging her?
France, with her Algerian
past? Britain, with her colonial
policy? The U.S.A., whom we
all remember in Vietnam?
Russia, still occupying a
number of conquered
nations?"
I raise this because I want
my views to be clear. I love
Israel far too much to hide my
position. Does this mean that
all Jews in the Diaspora should
adopt this position? I give ad-
vice to no one and speak in no
one's name. I speak only for
myself.
With my background and ex-
periences I cannot, from afar,
begin to judge Israel and tell
her what to do. I can only
share her hopes as I share her
difficulties.
I do not know what the solu-
tion to the Palestinian problem
is. I do not think anyone
knows.
How to compromise betwen
Israel's need for security and
the Palestinian desire for
independence?
How to defend Israel's life
and honor without being
apathetic to the Palestinian
anguish?
Difficult questions, without
an immediate solution. Still,
we cannot lose hope. We do
not have the right.
There is
no reason
to hesitate.

CONGREGATION
BETH AM
Seeks Full Time Rabbi
By a unanimous vote at its
February meeting, the Board
of Directors of Congregation
Beth Am voted to begin the
search for a full-time Rabbi to
serve the needs of their grow-
ing congregation.
Dr. Ralph Golub will chair
the committee to be composed
also of three members from
the Board and three members
from the congregation at
large. Persons interested in
serving on the search commit-
tee should phone Dr. Golub at
961-7522.
Although a full-time Rabbi
represents Beth Am's most
immediate need, other long
term plans are also under con-
sideration. According to con-
gregation president Dr.
Maurice Shaw, "... the Board
is carefully considering the
most appropriate time to pro-
ceed with the purchase of land
and the building of a perma-
nent home. The Board is also
taking steps to ensure that our
Financial planning is sound so
that Congregation Beth Am
will continue to grow from
strength to strength."

MYTHS AND FACTS
ON VIOLENCE IN THE TERRITORIES
Myth: Israeli soldiers are brutalizing innocent Palestinian civilians
without reason.
rACT: Palestinian radicals have been rioting violently for close to
two months in the Israeli-controlled 'West Bank' and Gaza territories.
These riots are not mild-mannered college campus demonstrations. They
are lethal. Street gangs are hurling Molotov cocktails, crowbars, bottles
and rocks. They're blocking traffic and forcing the closure of commercial
districts by burning tires and setting cars afire. Several Israelis have
been stabbed or fire-bombed and seriously wounded. Israeli security
forces have responded with harsh but carefully measured action design-
ed to restore law and order.
Myth: The Palestinian masses are merely acting out their pent-up
frustrations, understandable after so many years of occupation.
rAC I : To a certain extent these disturbances do reflect Palestinian
dissatisfaction with Israeli rule. But the rioting has been sustained by
radical activists and instigators from both outside who seek the
perpetuation of violence for the sake of violence. Militants representing
various Palestinian terrorist factions and Islamic fundamentalist groups
all of whom have no interest in a settlement with Israel have wont-
ed assiduously to incite the Arab population to violence. And, as one
Palestinian leader said: "Every dead Palestinian youth is worth his
weight in gold." As long as the TV cameras are arouind, these radicals
care little about the human cost of continued rioting.
Myth: Israeli security forces have acted with shocking viciousness in
dealing with the rioters.
r AC 1'. In most cases the IDF has acted with restraint, according to
strict, long-standing guidlines governing the conduct of troops facing
protestors. In some isolated instances it appears that IDF discipline may
have broken down, with regrettable results. Remember: Israeli army
personnel are trained for battle with Israel's Arab enemies, not in the
suppression of violent mass rioting.
Myth: Israeli forces are shooting and killing Arab rioters indiscriminate-
ly. They've been mercilessly beating Arabs too.
rAC 1 : Even in the face of severe provocation, Israeli troops are
under strict instructions to use rubber bullets, water hoses and tear gas.
They are permitted to use live ammunition only as a last resort, if their
lives are in danger, and only after they have fired warning shots in the
air. Had troops used live ammunition indiscriminately, hundreds of
rioters would have died during the first weeks of the disturbances.
Because of critical international reaction to the deaths of approximately
40 rioters, the Israeli Defense Minister has now cut back even further on
the use of live ammunition. Israeli patrols must now employ night-sticks
and clubs to subdue and arrest violent demonstrators. Where excesses in
the use of force have occurred, IDF leaders have responded with
disciplinary and corrective action. Israeli leaders are committed to
restoring order with whatever force is necessary but as humanely as
possible.
Myth: Thousands of Palestinians have been taken into detention, in-
cluding many children.
rAC 1 : Over 1,000 rioters have been arrested in Israel's crackdown
on the violence. All youths under fifteen years of age have been released
their parents promising to keep them out of trouble. Hundreds of
others have been questioned and released as well. Some 350 rioters are
standing trial for their actions in full accordance with the international
law governing Israel's military rule in the territories. A small number of
rioters and Palestinian leaders have been placed under administrative
detention for six months in order to prevent their participation in any
further violent activities.
Myth: Israel is deporting hundreds of Palestinians from their homeland
in violation of international law.
rAC 1 : Nine chief investigators of the violence have been singled out
by Israeli authorities for expulsion from the territories. Four of them
have been banished to southern Lebanon. All nine have long records of
subversive and even criminal activity including direct participation in
terrorist activities in some cases. Some of them convicted terrorist
are free from jail thanks only to an Israel-PLO prisoner swap in 1985.
Several years ago, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled, on the basis of many
important opinions in international law, that selected expulsion of
subversive elements from the territories does not contravene clause 49
of the Fourth Geneva Convention (which forbids the mass transfer or
deportation of civilian populations from occupied territories.).
Myth: Israel is a brutal occupier intent on indefinitely oppressing a suf-
fering Palestinian people. Israel seeks to permanently rule over a hostile
population in the West Bank and Gaza.
rAC I : Israel came into possession of the 'West Bank' and Gaza Strip
as a result of its victory in a war self-defense (the Six Day War of 1967).
This occupation was not of Israel's choice, nor does Israel intend to rule
Palestinians by military means any longer than they (the Palestinians)
make it necessary. Since 1967, Israel has held the status of these ter-
ritories in abeyance pending a settlement of the future of the lands and
their inhabitants in a peace treaty between Israel and its neighbors.
Israel has not annexed, extended its rule of law, nor in any way changed
the status of these areas. At the same time, Israel's security demands
that the IDF maintain a presence in the strategic heights of the West
Bank and along the Jordan Valley. This strategic imperative must be
taken into account in any regional settlement.
Mvth- Israel is not interested in changing the situation. It refuses to talk
about effecting change with any Palestinians.
FACT" Israel seeks an urgent, negotiated and peaceful resolution of
thVsituation in the territories and of the continuing war situation it faces
with.other Arab countries. The protracted Mideast regional stalemate is
the result of continuing Arab refusal, over the past fortv years, to
recognize Israel and negotiate peace with her It is the absence of a
Palestinian capacity to compromise with Israel that perpetuates Israel s
twentv-vear-old rule in the territories. Palestinian notables willing to
settle with Israel have all too often been silenced by a reactionist and
violent Palestinian leadership, Until a moderate Arab leadership steps
forward to negotiate in good faith with Israel, the present impasse will
unfortunately continue.
Myth: Israel just hasn't offered enough opportunities for peace to the
Palestinians.
FACT: There have been so many golden opportunities for equitable
Arab-Israeli compromise; Arab states and Palestinian leadership (with
the exception of Egypt) have scorned every one of them. In 1947 the UN
partition plan offered a Palestinian state (as well as an Israeli one) -
they said NO. After the Six Day War Israel offered to trade land for
peace they responded with the three famous NOs: NO negotiations,
NO recognition, NO peace with Israel. Camp David offered Palestinian
autonomy in the territories leading to a more permanent settlement
they said NO and rejoiced at President Sadat s assassination. In 1985
King Hussein offered Jordanian-Palestinian cooperation in direct talks
with Israel the PLO eventually said NO, causing the King to denounce
the PLO in the harshest terms. The plain truth is that Israel remains
ready for immediate and direct talks with any Arab leader willing to
commit himself to peace with Israel.
Myth: Most Palestinians want to live in peace alongside Israel. Israel just
has to talk with their leaders.
FACT: Unfortunately, most Palestinian leadership is rejectionist: the
PLO remains committed to the destruction of the State of Israel. Those
few Palestinians courageous enough to buck the PLO line and seek salva-
tion for their people through accommodation with Israel, have little mass
following. Nor do they live long. Meanwhile, the PLO's Yasir Arafat con-
tinues to do linguistic and diplomatic acrobatics, while encouraging
stepped-up terrorist activity against Israel.
Myth: Israel is responsible for the Arab refugee situation. Its creation
displaced the indigenous Palestinian Arab population, and forced these
people into refugee camps.
r ACTS: Arab leaders rejected the UN plan to partition Mandatory
Palestine, instead launching a war of annihilation against the young
Israel. Many Arabs left the Jewish-populated parts of Palestine at the
behest of their leaders who sought a clear path for their armies of
iihad against the Jews. Ever since, Palestinians have been purposefully
left to fester in refugee camps by Arab nations cynically intent on using
them as political pawns in their campaign against Israel. While Israel ab-
sorbed over 600,000 Jewish refugees from Arab lands, twenty-two
wealthy Arab nations have found themselves unable to resettle a similar
number of Palestinians over the past forty years!
Myth: Israel is quite satisfied to keep Palestinians locked up in refugee
camps. It doesn t care about their living conditions.
FACT: Despite the fact that from 1948-1967 Arab nations did nothing
to change the refugee-camp life of Palestinians, over the last twenty
years Israel has repeatedly sought to resettle Palestinians out of the
refugee camps into modern new homes and neighborhoods. At every at-
tempt, every year, Israel has been condemned by the United Nations
which has demanded that Israel "desist from the removal and resettle-
ment of Palestine refugees from the Gaza Strip" (see res. 41/69E); and
that Israel "abandon those plans and refrain from any action that leads
to the removal and resettlement of Palestine refugees in the West Bank"
(see res. 41/69J). Only Israel and the United States have opposed these
resolutions. For Israel it amounts to this: damned if you do and damned
if you don t.
Myth: If only Israel would pull out of the Gaza Strip and hand it over to
the Lgyptians, peace and order would be restored.
rAC 1 : Left to its own devices, Gaza would quickly become a terrorist
haven and launching base for PLO activists and Islamic fundamentalist
radicals. Egypt doesn t want it back; President Sadat reportedly made
that clear during the Camp David negotiations, as has President
Mubarak today. Gaza is unsuitable as a separate entity it's little more
than an elongated sandbar. Its future and that of its inhabitants,
therefore is inevitably connected to a broader peace settlement between
Israel and Arab leaders over the West Bank.
Myth: For Palestinians, the West Bank under Israel is a hellish place to

Legislative Breakfast
Airs Social Issues
TAMPA State legislators
told Jewish community
members Feb. 24 that an issue
dear to Jewish hearts social
spending faces an uphill bat-
tle in the upcoming state
legislative session in
Tallahassee.
Speaking at the annual
legislative breakfast spon-
sored by the Governmental
Task Force, heads of Jewish
social agencies pleaded for
more money with which to
help the sick, the poor, the
young and the elderly. But
legislators delivered the tough
news that big gains in state
social spending can't be ex-
pected in a year when lobbying
by special interests defeated
the brand-new services tax
and that new tax sources,
possibly a state income tax,
may have to be sought.
"We have a quiet revolt
against additional taxes sitting
out there in the county, in the
state. We have to be very
careful that we don't get that
revolt activated," said State
Senator Pat Frank.
"Human services will be cut
terribly" this year, while roads
and infrastructure receive
preference, said Rep. Helen
Gordon Davis.
"There is a crying need for
the people in this room to push
the legislature for major tax
increases," said Rep. Ron
G lick man.
Frank, Davis and Glickman
said they all supported
meeting social needs
enumerated by Jewish agency
leaders. Frank and Davis voic-
ed sympathy for another issue
significant to Jews, although
one not as critical as social ser-
vices: prayer in schools and
public meetings.
Davis noted that House rules
now schedule roll call after the
prayer, which many legislators
object to. They can show their
opposition by not appearing at
their seats until after the
prayer, she said. Republicans
and conservative Democrats
recently undid such a provision
in the Senate, said Frank,
leaving the Senate with "a
long way to go" on the issue of
religious sensitivity.
Anschel Weiss, director of
Tampa Jewish Family Ser-
vices, outlined a long list of
dire needs for both public and
non-profit social services
agencies.
More affordable day care is
needed to help keep single
parents off welfare, he said.
"There are single and two-
parent families where it
almost doesn't pay to go to
work," Weiss said.
Certain welfare benefits
need to be extended to cover
the poor even after they find
work, Weiss said.
Too often, a onetime welfare
recipient loses a job shortly
after getting it and after be-
ing stripped of benefits like
Medicaid in the meantime.
Weiss targeted a number of
issues affecting elderly people:
funding home care of the in-
firm elderly; the need for more
adult congregate living
facilities, which provide a level
of care halfway between the
home and the nursing home;
the need for stricter laws
regarding abuse of the elderly;
more safe houses for elderly
abuse victims.
Jewish Family Services
draws 33 percent of its clients
from the general public and
along with other private agen-
cies helps ease the%workload of
the state Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Ser-
vices, Weiss said. Frank said
she supports expanded day
care. But new day care slots
now being provided are being
"robbed" from another
category day care for the
working poor, she said.
One state program for
welfare recipients has the
peculiar effect of encouraging
single mothers to go on
welfare to qualify for the day
tf
Being Single and Sexual
in the 80's"
Tampa Jewish Family Ser-
vices is sponsoring a new
discussion series for single
adults on Monday evenings
from 7:30 to 9 p.m. once mon-
thly at 112 S. Magnolia Street,
Tampa. The group will begin
meeting on March 28. Group
facilitator will be Janice
Perelman, MA, a staff member
of Tampa Jewish Family Ser-
vices. "Being Single and Sex-
ual in the 80's" is just one of
the topics which will be ad-
dressed. Participants in the
group will help to determine
the topics to be discussed at
following sessions.
This group is an outgrowth
of a recent discussion group
for Jewish singles which was
sponsored by Tampa Bay
Jewish Singles Council.
A fee of $3 per person, which
may be paid at the door, will
include the discussion group
and refreshments. For more
information, call 251-0083.
The Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion/Community Relations
Committee sponsored the
2nd Annual Legislative
Breakfast Wednesday, Feb.
24 at the Embassy Suites
Hotel. Some of those in at-
tendance were State
Representative Ron
Glickman; Doug Cohn, presi-
dent, Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion; Sandy Mahr, co-
chairman of this event; Linda
Goldstein, co-chairman; Rab-
bi H. David Rose, chairman
of the Community Relations
Committee; and Dr. Maurice
Shaw, president, Congrega-
tion Beth Am.
Sharing ideas and exchang-
ing information dealing with
legislative issues of mutual
concern were the following:
Charlotte Sims, legislative
aide for Senator Pat Frank;
Marcia Chandler, legislative
aide for State Representative
Jim Hargrett; Eric Schot-
tenstein, Community Rela-
tions Committee; Don Wein-
bren, Community Relations
Committee; State Represen-
tative Helen Gordon Davis;
and Susan Swift, Tampa
Jewish Federation Business
and Professional Women's
Network.
care aid they need in order to
then get a job, she said.
Davis said she also favors aid
to some other sectors. One is
"displaced homemakers,"
women who are suddenly
divorced after years of being
out of the job market, she said.
"But I don't think we'll get
additional money for addi-
tional programs." she said.
Glickman said the legislature
ought to resist Gov. Bob Mar-
tinez's budget priorities, and
fund roads through the gas tax
instead of through general
revenues.
"Unless there is a major
reevaluation of priorities,
which we three agree on but
other members (do not), ...
we are not going to fund these
(social service) needs," said
Glickman. "Roads are sexy,
social services tend not to be."
"To raise more money/we'll
have to put up with an income
tax without a service tax,
there's no other way,
"Glickman said.

Women Refuseniks Hold
Hunger Strike
Friday, March 18, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 11

| The women, who have form-

Tomen For Emigration And

STATEMENT OF WOMEN
10 PARTICIPATED IN
THE HUNGER STRIKE
MARCH 6-8
To protest the continued ar-
litrary and illegal actions of
loviet authorities to us and
problem, we women
jfuseniks announce a three
ay hunger strike coinciding
nth International Women's
)ay. There were in the past 76
iromen from nine cities who
participated in a similar
|unger strike trying to obtain
ie right to emigrate. During
lis past year many of the par-
ticipants of the first hunger
strike were, at last, able to
leave the country with their
families. Still many of us re-
main. We and our families con-
tinue to find ourselves in the
same state of uncertainty and
stress which is affecting our
health, strength and profes-
sional capabilities. The state of
refusal is an artificially created
My family will be marking
another doleful anniversary on
March 10. This year it will
mark the 17th anniversary of
the day we first applied to
leave the Soviet Union. We are
refused permission to go
because I once had access to
so-called sensitive informa-
tion. That was on my job at the
Automation Research In-
special problem contradictory s*-tute m the City of Sverdlov-
both to the spirit of interna-
tional understanding and
perestroika. The only factors
necessary for the complete
solution to this problem are
good will, humanity and com-
mon sense. We appeal to the
Soviet authorities to bring to
an end this illegality and
tyranny.
Give us and our families exit
visas. We appeal to all people
of good will; demand the
Soviet Union cease their policy
of refusal and halt the suffer-
ing of human beings.
SIGNED: Participants of the
Hunger Strike: Moscow, Cher-

National Response
To Hunger Strike By
Yuli Kosharousky, Moscow
A teacher and activist, Yuli
[osharousky, 46, has been in
le forefront of the struggle
)r Aliyah for two decades. A
lebrew teacher and Jewish
ctivist, he last worked in a job
nth access to classified infor-
lation in 1968. But even as
the Soviet authorities have
llowed so many of his friends
leave recently Slepak,
Judel, Lerner, among others
they continue to stubbornly
lold onto this heroic man and
lis family. Just a few weeks
jo, on Feb. 12 he was again
refused on the grounds of
'secrecy."
Kosharousky's interest in
Israel and things Jewish dates
Wk to the event that was
irninal to the dawning of
Jewish consciousness among
Soviet Jews in the modern era:
ie 1967 Six Day War. As
(artin Gilbert quoted
Cosharousky in the Jerusalem
ost last month: "The Soviet
lewspapers said Israel was be-
ing crushed. That thousands of
Israelis were dead. That Israel
'as being swept away in an
Lrab sea. I made a big antenna
my house to try to get infor-
lation. I couldn't; I felt a
slow. I wanted to die with my
sple. Then the official news
changed. Israel had won, but
only as the agressor, using
overwhelming force against a
defenseless foe. It was a clear
|>e against my people."
With so many of the leading
lights of the Refuseniks, the
lebrew teachers, religious
id cultural activists, the pro-
onets of aliyah, having finally
been allowed to emigrate, our
attention must turn to nurtur-
ing the new generation which
is beginning to clamor for con-
tact with world Jewry. But we
cannot forget those pioneers
who remain behind and still
need our encouragement and
support. Yuli Kosharousky's
time for freedom must come.
Yuli Kosharousky's state-
ment follows. To learn more on
how you can get involved with
Soviet Jewry contact the Tam-
pa Jewish Federation at
875-1618.
sk between 1965 and 1968. Ac-
cording to instructions receiv-
ed from the Institute, I have
been no security risk since
May 1971, 17 years ago.
My family's case is an elo-
quent example of the unlimited
arbitrary refusal of permission
to emigrate for reasons of
secrecy. No rational person
would suspect a need to worry
about state security for all
these endless years that we
have been refuseniks. It is
likewise impossible to explain
why eminent scientists and
engineers possessing access to
far more important sensitive
materials have been allowed to
leave, while a person like me,
an ordinary engineer 20 years
ago is still being held here.
I lost my job right after I ap-
plied to leave. So did my wife.
All these years, we have been
compelled to wage an intricate
struggle for survival. As
refuseniks, we experienced
numerous arrests, house sear-
ches, detentions, and vicious
libel in the mass media. Our
oldest son, Mikhail, 20 years
old today, grew into adulthood
as a refusenik. Two younger
sons, Eli, 9, and Moti, 6, were
born refuseniks. They witness-
ed and experienced all the
tragic events in the life of both
our family and those of other
refuseniks. How can one help
shuddering to see how their
defenseless young lives are
crippled for the sole reason
that we want to live in a coun-
try of our own among our
relatives? Just listen to a six
year old's repeated and ever
more frequent question,
"When are we going to get out
of here?"
We have applied to all offices
concerned. These include the
Emigration Office, the
A Press Statement
Supreme Soviet, the Foreign
Ministry, and the Communist
Party. Everywhere we came
up against frankly insipid red
tape, deceit, and mystification.
We have been shown quickly
and clearly that glasnost and
democratization are not for us.
Things being as they are, we
have decided on a desperate
step. On March 10, the 17th
anniversary of our application
to emigrate, we begin an
unlimited hunger strike.

Hillel School
Of Tampa
EXCELLENCE AND FLEXIBILITY
The Hillel School program works, because we combine only
the best in Jewish and General studies through the eighth
grade. National testing indicates our students achieve well
above their grade level in every area.
Our program is flexible as well as excellent. Students may
enter even the highest grades with little or no knowledge of
Hebrew. Through a dual-track system they take Jewish
studies in English until individual instruction brings their
Hebrew up to a sufficient level.
If you're planning a Seder
and would like to leave the
cooking to someone else,
Sherry and Glenn Phillips of
DESIGN CATERING at 3911
W. Waters Ave. will make it
easy for you. They have a
special Passover Menu that in-
cludes all the traditional dishes
from soup to dessert.
As a special for our Jewish
Floridian of Tampa readers,
they will give a 10 percent dis-
count on orders that are placed
with deposit by March 22.
Call them at 961-8986 to
order early for your Holiday
needs.
Weizmann
Speaker
At Dinner

Professor Ruth Arnon, the
distinguished immunologist
and scientist of Israel's Weiz-
mann Institute of Science, will
be the guest speaker at a Din-
