International Peace
Congress Endorses
Reaffirming the un-
precedented position taken by
its Governing Council in
September, 1987, the
American Jewish Congress
passed a resolution underscor-
ing its belief that "the status
quo in the Middle East cannot
realistically be maintained and
morally ought not to be main-
tained." The resolution on the
Middle East peace process also
urged Israel to welcome and
pursue energetically the
Shultz initiative.
The earlier position stated
that "if no political ad-
justments are effected (regar-
ding the West Bank and Gaza
demographic imperatives will
force Israel to choose between
becoming a non-Jewish state
or a non-demoncratic state.
Neither choice is acceptable."
Celebrating the 70th an-
niversary of the American
Jewish Congress and the 40th
anniversary of the State of
Israel, delegates at the 1988
National Biennial Convention
adopted this resolution ap-
plauding U.S. Secretary of
State Shultz's initiative to pro-
mote Arab-Israeli peace
negotiations. The resolution
noted that the preference of
many Israelis is for bilaterial
negotiations with Jordan
which "if it were available as a
political reality would be a
preferable course to follow."
Since bilateral negotiations
are not currently possible the
resolution called on Israel "to
display the boldness and im-
agination required for the
achievement of genuine pro-
gress toward peace."
Observing that "the Palesti-
nians have never missed a
chance to miss an opportuni-
ty," the resolution also
challenged the Palestinians
"to make those minimal com-
mitments that Israelis have
every right to expect of them
recognition of Israel and
renunciation of violence."

Reagan to Meet Gorbachev
What Can You Do To Make Your Voice Heard?
Summit IV has been an-
nounced, and President
Reagan will definitely meet
General Secretary Gorbachev
in Moscow, May 29th to June
3rd. This will be the first time
in 14 years that a United
States President will be in
Moscow. It will certainly be a
major world event, with all
eyes focused on Moscow dur-
ing those days. The hope of
Soviet Jews is once again on
the rise.
In a communique to the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry, Yuli Koshovarsky, then
on the 14th day of a hunger
strike said, "We look forward
to President Reagan's visit.
We hope it will bring the
welcome news of the release of
many of us waiting so many
years to go to our homeland."
Eugenia Kalendariov, of Len-
ingrad, a 14-year Refusenik
added that, "We will go to
Moscow to see the President.
We will make our voices
We must be certain that the
issue of Soviet Jewry is includ-
ed on the agenda, and that the
President carries a strong and
clear mandate from the
American people. We must be
certain that we focus press at-
tention and public opinion on
the issue of Soviet Jewry.
What we, the Soviet Jewry
Task Force of the Tampa
Jewish Federation want you to
do is start a letter writing cam-
paign to President Reagan.
Communicate to the President
that you support his long-held
position that human rights and
Soviet Jewry are of paramount
importance to the American
people. Include the nine
points, approved by the Na-
tional Council on Soviet Jewry,
which is a priority list of issues
to be resolved in seeking a
redress of those abuses affec-
ting the Jewish minority in the
Soviet Union. These are:
1) Emigration of all
2) A substantial and sustain-
ed level of emigration involv-
ing new applicants.
3) Elimination of the re-
quirements that perspective
emigrants receive invitations
from first degree kin abroad.
4) The establishment of a
reasonable time limitation for
use of the "State Security"
denial of exit visas.
5) Broadening opportunities
for freedom of religious and
cultural practices including
Jewish culture, and particular-
ly the study of Hebrew, as well
as the opportunity for Soviet
Jews to form associations with
Jews in the USSR and in other
6) Provision of direct flight
for Jews emigrating to Israel.
7) Evidence of equality of op-
portunity for Soviet Jews, par-
ticularly with respect to access
to institutions of higher
8) The non-jamming of VOA,
Radio Liberty and Kol Israel
broadcasts to the USSR.
9) Elimination of all forms of
official and public anti-
semitism, and action against
the neo-fascist, xenophobic,
and anti-Jewish groups which
are proliferating.

U.S. To Sell
Israel Planes
The Reagan administration in-
formally notified Congress
that it intends to sell 75 F-16
fighter planes to Israel, worth
$2 billion, a Capitol Hill source
The sale originated last year
as a way to help offset Israel's
cancellation of the Lavi fighter
plane project.
The administration must for-
mally notify Congress of the
sale. Congress then has 30
days to vote to block the sale.
If it does not vote on the mat-
ter, the sale will go through
The source said that the
planes, which will be built by
general Dynamics, will be
delivered in 1990.

Reactions... to the Washington Conference
In a tremendous show of
support and feelings towards
their country and Israel, along
with Jews worldwide, more
than 3,000 young Jewish
leaders converged on
Washington from March
13-March 15 for the sixth na-
tional Young Leadership
The Conference, which is
held biannually, has grown
from a few hundred leaders 12
years ago to the largest tur-
nout ever, this year at the
Washington Hilton Hotel.
And with the growth of the
Conference comes the growth
of numbers representing Tam-
pa this year 25 young
leaders were present, second
only to Miami in numbers from
one city in Florida.
"The Conference has shown
what a driving force it is on
our young leaders of this coun-
try," said Lee Tobin, who
along with Laura Kreitzer
chaired the recuitment for
Tampa delegates. "It deals
with political activities and
social activities that affect our
lives everyday as Americans
and Jews and the lives of our
family in Israel."
Several highlights of the
Conference included a speech
on Monday night by Israel's
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and speeches by such
Senators as Edward Kennedy,
Robert Packwood, Frank
Lautenberg, George Mitchell,
Daniel Patrick Moynihan and
Daniel Inouye as well as the
opening speech by Nobel
Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel.
"There is such an exciting
feeling at a Conference of this
nature," added Kreitzer. "the
friendship, comraderies and
learning experience is
something that you can never
Other delegates from Tampa
included: BUI Kalish, Jolene
Shor, Lisa Bush, Don Wein-
bren, Sandy andBarry Bercu,
Dan and Debbie Albert, Mike
and Debbi Eisenstadt, Steve
Kreitzer, Arthur and Susan
Forman, Mark Carron, Lori
Karpay, Jim Fried, Lois
Greenbaum, Karen and Keith
Schilit, Valerie Jacobs, Eric
Schottenstein, Steffie Hoff,
Cindy Spahn, and Nancy
Reaction to the Conference
was nothing but favorable
from the Tampa delegation
and the followng is a sample of
that reaction:
"I am heartened by our fast
pace of Jewish commitment
shown by our young leaders.
This commitment has been
demonstrated very simply by
the evolving nature of the
number of participants atten-
ding this Convention. In 1984,
all of us had will be told by
each of us to our friends and to
the community in general.
This is a Conference like no
other. Consider that there
were 3,000 young Jewish men
and women from around the
country that all met in
Washington, D.C. Frankly, it
is unheard of in any generation
where so many young Jewish
leaders meet in the Capitol of
the world's strongest country.
Members of Congress seek out
the opportunity to address and
participate in the Conference.
A quick review of the schedule
bears witness to the member
of influential Senators and
Congressman participating.
There were in addition to the
plenary sessions numerous
breakout sessions throughout
the convention. It is unfor-
tunate that I could not attend
all of them because each had
wonderful speakers with the
opportunity of learning so
much. The ones I attended on
the media, Israel politics and
Yiddishkeit in the home were
very informative. I intend to
convey my impressions to
others in Tampa who were
unable to attend the Con-
ference. Of course, it is a
wonderful opportunity to meet
and talk with the other
members of the Young
Leadership Cabinet who at-
tended. Without a doubt, the
members of the Cabinet are
among the most committed
young leaders in their respec-
tive Jewish communities in the
The first two words which
came to mind when I was ask-
ed to give my impressions of
the Washington Conference
were Unity and Pride.
Pride because during the
educational seminars, the
senatorial speeches, the ad-
dresses from Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, Nobel Prize
Winner Elie Wiesel, and all the
others, and even during the
Palestinian Liberation
Organization demonstration, I
could actually feel the pride
emanating from this group of
dedicated individuals. Pride is
being American Jews
dedicated to learning and do-
ing all that could be done to aid
the survival of our ideals and
our homeland, from helping to
raise money for UJA, to
visiting our Senators and Con-
gressmen on Capitol Hill to do
a little individualized lobbying.
Unity because from the mo-
ment I stepped through the
door at the Washington Hilton
and entered a meeting room
filled with a standing-room-
only crowd of nearly 3,000
young, Jewish leaders, I was
overwhelmed with a sense of
strength and commitment to
the common purpose which
... showing our support for
Israel and her people.
This experience makes a
tremendous impression on all
who choose to attend. It
definitely made one on me.
The Young Leadership UJA
Washington Conference was
truly a delightful surprise. It
was a great pleasure to see
3,000 young Americans so
committed to the basic issues
of community social service in-
volvement, Israel's security,
Jewish survival and Russian
Jewry. I was impressed with
the tremendous number of
young leaders from around the
country who have not only
been to Israel at least once, but
who traveled to the Soviet
Union to visit Refusenik
Tampa's contingent grew
closer and closer as the con-
vention progressed. We lob-
bied our Congressman
together, we celebrated
Israel's achievement together
and we shared many emotional
moments. The feelings were
not unlike the closeness of a
summer camp experience. We
grew as individuals and we
grew in our desire to
strengthen Tampa's position
on the UJA map.
One cannot participate in the
Washington Conference and
be unaffected by the over-
whelming experience of being
with 3,000 Jews of varied
backgrounds who have come
together in one place to learn,
to laugh, sing, cry, be stunned
by dynamic and indescribable
oratory, to be demonstrated
against by Palestinians outside
of our hotel, to make our sen-
timents known to our con-
gressmen and senators, and
most importantly, to be solidly
molded into a strong, un-
wavering, unified voice in sup-
port of Israel and her right to

Why...Visit Israel Today
Today more than ever it is
important to express our
solidarity with ISRAEL and
its people. If we fail to do so we
will find ourselves encourag-
ing the Arabs to continue the
violence and to put ISRAEL
under pressure to reach a solu-
tion immediately which will ef-
fect ISRAEL'S ability to sur-
vive. The current situation in
ISRAEL has already damaged
ISRAEL'S image and brought
the Palestinian question to the
headlines, and on the other
hand brought the peace in-
itiative to the area. Those are
some of the political outcomes
of the situation. There is just a
little that we can do from here
to interfere with this political
But the above are not the on-
ly results of the uprising. One
of the main effects of these
uprising is the economic effect
on ISRAEL. Before the upris-
ing started, over 100,000 Arab
workers used to come to work
in ISRAEL'S construction and
manufacturing industry.
These workers were essential
to ISRAEL'S economic well-
being. Their not being there
will have an adverse affect on
the economy.
Last year 1.5 million tourists
visited ISRAEL which was a
record year in the ISRAELI
tourism industry. The total
revenue derived from this was
2.5 billion in U.S. dollars. This
ranked tourism as ISRAEL'S
number one export industry.
Since the disturbances started
the tourism industry has slow-
ed. Hotel and other tourist ser-
vices are almost out of
business, but more important
than this is that ISRAEL feels
abandon by its friends in a
crucial time.
Being an ISRAELI I am
definitely aware of ISRAEL'S
geographical makeup and the
location of the tourist attrac-
tions. I know that those attrac-
tions are far from where the
riots are taking place. I can
state with confidence that
everyone can still enjoy
ISRAEL with its fascinating
historical sites, warm climate
and scenery, and its open and
warm ISRAELI welcome
without any risk of any kind.
Jerusalem and the rest of
ISRAEL is safe as ever. A
small refugee camp in Gaza
which may have a disturbance
has never been a tourist at-
traction. You as a tourist
would not be able to get near it
even if you wanted to.
Two weeks ago an El-Al
jumbo jet with 500 volunteers
flew to ISRAEL. These
volunteers will be working on
army losses, kibbutzim, and
development towns. This is a
real way to support ISRAEL
and express solidarity in this
important time. Summer is
nearing and most of us are
finalizing our plans for this
summer. Many of us intended
to visit ISRAEL and due to the
current political situation are
wondering if this is the best
decision. Yes, there has not
been a better time to visit
ISRAEL than now. Come join
us in ISRAEL for the 40th An-
niversary Celebration.

Building to Be Named After
WASHINGTON (JTA) The Senate has approv-
ed a bill to name the federal office building in
Omaha, Neb., after Sen. Edward Zorinsky (D-
Neb.), who died March 6, 1987, at age 58. Elected
to the Senate in 1976, Zorinsky was the first Jew to
win a statewide election in Nebraska.

ed and in 1986, 13 represen-
tatives attended. This year we
were fortunate in having 25
dedicated members of the
Tampa Jewish Federation at-
tended the Conference. If
nothing else, the numbers
alone are helpful. However, we
know very well that the value
in these kinds of numbers are
in geometric proportion to the
impact they will have on other
members of the community.

existence is not a topic for

resolution emphasized that
"the PLO has not earned the
right to participate in peace

PLO persists in refusing to
abolish its infamous Palestine
National Covenant which calls
openly for Israel's destruction,
the Israelis will have nothing
to talk about with that
organization." Until the time

right to exist, and renounces

Safeguards for Israel which
were earlier agreed to by
Foreign Minister Peres and
King Hussein of Jordan and
which were incorporated by
Shultz in the most recent pro-
posal were considered by the
delegates to be an integral
part of any peace plan. The
safeguards upheld that "To
participate in an international
conference, all prospective
participants will be obliged to
acept UN resolution 242 and
338 and renounce violence and
terrorism." Furthermore,
"the conference will not be
able to impose solutions or
veto agreements." The
delegates confidence in an in-
ternational conference was
bolstered by President
Reagan's declaration that "the
United States will not leave
Israel standing alone, nor will
it acquiesce in any effort to
gang up on Israel." The Presi-
dent continued by asserting
that "peace will not be impos-
ed by anyone but will and must
come from the genuine give-
and-take of negotiations.
The delegates stressed that
"concern for the well-being
and safety of the people of
Israel is a matter of para-
mount importance to
American Jews and Jews
throughout the world."

Do you ever get the feeling
that things aren't right in the
world? Sometimes it seems as
if we are bent on self destruc-
tion. The teenagers are com-
mitting suicide in record
numbers. So many young peo-
ple are dropping out and turn-
ing to drugs and violence. We
are being hit with moral ques-
tions about the right to die and
the obligation to live. It seems
as if nothing is ever right or
wrong anymore. It's just
Well, the larger society has
always had problems, but we
Jews didn't share most of
them. We had our laws and our
tightly woven social structure
and it gave us protection. But
something seems to be happen-
ing. Despite the condemnation
of the Rabbinate, Jews are
marrying non Jews. Despite
the efforts of the Jewish social
structure, Jews are divorcing
each other in large numbers or
never even marrying at all.
Pessimists say we are being
assimiliated. Optimists say this
is just a social adjustment. I
don't know, but I know I do
Recently the Jewish Family
Services sponsored the Sue
Brav brunch. They brought in
a speaker who said alot of
pessimistic things. He talked
about how our Jewish social
structure is breaking down.
We have more alcoholism, we
have more divorce. We have
fewer children. We have an in-
creasing anger at our elderly.
We have more adult children
forced by economic cir-
cumstances to live at home.
And family issues not resolved
when the child went to college
are coming back to rip the
family apart. We are seeing
the sandwich generation (30's
and 40's) struggling to support
(financially and emotionally)
their aging parents as well as
their own children. We see our
children being raised by out-
siders. The list of problems is
It is always sad to hear
depressing things, but it is not
always bad. In fact sometimes
we have to hear them in order
to redefine ourselves, our
values, our priorities.
Sometimes we have to hear
them in order to accept change
and to make it a change for a
better world.
The speaker said that the
Jewish community is always
on the "cutting edge" of
change. He suggested that the
symptoms of change are what
we are seeing. What he didn't
do was offer any solutions.
Why? Maybe because the
change must come from us.
Maybe because there is no
quick and easy solution. If we
were to pick one of the above
problems to solve, which one
would it be? If we as a com-
munity were to decide to
devote our power and money
to one of these, which one
would we chose?
We have our traditions
which can help us decide, but if
the Jewish community isn't in
agreement, the traditions will
not be followed. We have our
law and our history, but if no
one knows them or believes in
them, they will not help us. So
where do we go? There are
many answers, but which one
will move the Jewish people as
a community. And what of our
people meanwhile. We must
support each other and we
must support our own (Jewish)
social services.
Funny thing, the speaker
never considered the possiblity
that the Jewish community
would not survive. Maybe
that's the key. As long as we
believe that we will survive,
we will find the inner strength
to discover the answer. Maybe
in the agony of change, we will
find a rebirth. Throughout our
history we always have.
One of the main concerns of
our Organization is to Honor
and Respect the graves of
those that have served our
We desire to decorate these
graves with American Flags.
In that vein we are requesting
Synagogues and Temples, or
Individuals with loved ones
buried in cemeteries in the
Tampa Area, to let us know
their names and the locations
of the cemetery.
We would appreciate hear-
ing from you, as soon as possi-
ble so that we may complete

Rabbi Kaplan Space Filling Fast at Hillel
Accepts New
By now, millions of words
have been written, stated,
restated ad infinitum about the
current crisis confronting the
State of Israel. While I do not
claim to have the answers or
solutions to a very complex
and troubling situation, there
are a few comments I would
like to add.
First of all, it is important to
recognize that the root of to-
day's crisis extends far beyond
current events. It flows from
40 years of Arab refusal to ac-
cept the existence of the State
of Israel and 40 years of
organized attempts to drive
the Jewish people into the sea.
Today, debate rages as to
the causes of the uprisings, the
appropriateness of Israel's
response, and the method of
resolving the conflict.
However, on one issue I feel
confident that there is over-
whelming agreement that
we in Tampa stand firm with
world Jewry in our commit-
ment to the State of Israel, its
survival and security. Even
when we criticize her (and I
firmly believe that the
American Jewish community
has a right to express itself to
Israeli leadership) we do so out
of love and concern for her
future not from a lessening
of our support. Israel is a
democratic country. The
responsibility for resolving the
problems lies in the hands (and
the votes) of the people who
live with them on a day to day
The Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion through its Community
Relations Committe has
devoted much time and energy
to inform our community and
add context and balance to the
television stories, news ar-
ticles and editorials which
have abounded. Additional
reprints of "myths and facts"
recently published by the CRC
in the Jewish Floridian are
available by calling the
Federation office. This effort
will continue to assure a well
informed community to com-
bat what is frequently a biased
and unduly harsh treatment of
Israel by the media.
Let us not allow the
headlines to obscure the fact
that Israel represents for K'lal
Yisrael, the community of
Israel, a unifying symbol of the
Jewish people. We must not
forget why we have aided her
these past 40 years. We must
and will continue to give our
unwavering support to our
brothers and sisters, the peo-
ple of Israel.
Martin F. Stein, National
Chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal stated in a re-
cent letter to community
leadership: "In the final
analysis it all boils down to one
simple lesson: 4,000 years of
history have taught us that if
the Jewish people do not take
care of each other, no one else
will. We learned this in the
1930's, when the countries of
the world quickly shut their
doors to those fleeing the 'final
solution,' and we learned it
again in 1948, as Israel valiant-
ly fought for its survival and
the world's democracies re-
mained strangely silent. Even
in difficult times, we will con-
tinue the ingathering, resettle
the land, provide every
youngster with the opportuni-
ty to develop in a wholesome
environment, and renew the
dignity of life for families in
distressed neighborhoods."
I ask you to join us in our ef-
forts to help our brethren at
home, in Israel, and
throughout the world.
Elder Support Network
Bernard B. Nebenzahl,
president of the Association of
Jewish Family and Children's
agencies, has announced that
the Association's Elder Sup-
port Network project has
received the Seventh Annual
award "Voluntarism in Action
for the Aging" (VIAA). This
award is sponsored by the Na-
tional Voluntary Organiza-
tions for Independing Living
for the Aging (NVOILA), and
affiliate of the National Coun-
cil for the Aging (NCOA). It
was presented to represen-
tatives of the Netwoork at the
NVOILA'S Annual Meeting in
Washington, D.C., on April 15,
as part of NCOA's 38th annual
The Elder Support Network
is a telephone "bridge" design-
ed to link concerned family
members of frail elderly
relatives in distant cities with
Jewish Family Services that
can provide needed support
and help for these "at risk"
loved ones. The Network has
been gaining tremendous
momentum in recent weeks,
with the number of referrals
rising from 2 to 3 per week
during initial stages of opera-
tion last summer to 12 to 15
per week currently. Selection
of the Elder Support Network
for this honor was the result of
two factors. The Network pro-
ject had the ability to create
heightened awareness of the
needs, interests, and
capacities of older adults, and
its potential as a model to
other national organizations.
Secondly, the Elder Support
Network is unique.
Made up of 75 Partner agen-
cies through North America,,
the Elder Support Network is
a service of the Association of
Jewish Family and Children's
agencies. Tampa Jewish Fami-
ly Services is such a partner.
The Association is the
membership organization of
135 Jewish Family Services
agencies in North America.
Rabbi Steven J. Kaplan,
director of the Hillel Jewish
Student Center of Tampa, will
be leaving that post to accept
the position of Rabbi at Tem-
ple Beth-El of Bradenton. In
the five years that Rabbi
Kaplan has been with Hillel, he
has taken what was a flounder-
ing chapter at U.S.F. and turn-
ed it into the most vibrant and
active unit in the State. Addi-
tionally, Kaplan founded
chapters at the University of
Tampa, Stetson University
College of Law, and
Hillsborough Community Col-
lege, as well as having begun a
graduate group. AEPi, a
Jewish fraternity, was found-
ed by him in 1984, S.D.T., a
Jewish sorority, in 1987, and a
faculty/community chavurah
affiliated with the Reconstruc-
tionist movement in 1984.
A published author and ad-
junct faculty member at USF,
Rabbi Kaplan was appointed
as the first chaplain at USF'S
Florida Mental Health In-
stitute. "Leaving Hillel will
not be easy", says Kaplan. "I
have a great emotional in-
volvement and investment
with the students. However,
given the direction of where I
see my energies and talents in
various areas, the move to
Beth-El is best. My programm-
ing ideas and the congrega-
tion's goals seem to be a
perfect marriage." Rabbi
Kaplan and his family will still
be residing in Tampa.
The Hillel School of Tampa
is still accepting applications
for enrollment for 1988-89
school year. Space remains for
students in the upper level
classes although lower grades
have been filling up quickly.
Aside from receiving in-
dividualized attention from
highly qualified caring
teachers, Hillel offers the
stability of low staff turnover.
Teachers return each year to
Hillel's warm, nurturing and
enriched environment.
The results of the superior
academic program is proven
by students scoring well above
grade level on the California
Test of Basic skills.
Expansion of music, art and
physical education depart-
ments, computers in each
classroom, and an expanded
and refined curriculum further
enhances our goal of ex-
cellence in education.
"The secret of education lies
in respecting the pupil."

comes to a close, another class
gets ready to graduate. And at
the Hillel School of Tampa, the

about their upcoming
matriculation and plans for the
The whole graduating class

Ian Davidson, Caron Jacob-
son (student council presi-
dent), and David Schuster
started at Hilel School in the
first grade. Joshua Ewen and
Rachel Greenhawt have been
students since the second
grade. They all said that they'd
be leaving the school with very
positive memories. They will
remember the clubs, the com-
puter studies, the science and
book fairs, the Hannukah
Speakers Bureau, the Jewish
studies, the music and mostly
the fun. Rachel Greenhawt
said, "she worked hard, but
enjoyed it." Ian Davidson said,
"he didn't want the 8th grade
to end, it's been an exciting
year." David Schuster said,
"he would never forget
Hillel." Joshua Ewen said, "he
loved learning from his
teachers experience and
knowledge." And Caron
Jackson,, said, "she gained so
much from the Speakers
Bureau that she plans to go on
with speech and communica-
tion." All the kids agreed they
would come back to visit.

students who receive intensive
Jewish educations feel
stronger bonds to their Jewish
identities and lifestyles. They

Look At The Bottom Line
After all has been said about our
innovative bicultural program, one
thing is still more Important Our
students learn better.
In recent national testing, Hillel
students finished well above their
grade level in every category. The
table below indicates, for example,
that our seventh graders read at a
twelfth grade level. In some areas,
they did better than more than 99
percent of their peers throughout
the nation.

At this time in the year, it is
always enlightening to stop
and take a look at our children
to realize how much they
have grown and developed.
It's hard to believe that these
are the same children who
began JCC PreSchool in
They have, of course, grown
physically. But their develop-
ment goes beyond just the
physical. They are more in-
dependent; they have stronger
self-concept; and they are bet-
ter able to function as part of a
group. Their verbal expression
has increased; their congnitive
experience have broadened;
and they have learned so much
about the world around them.
Learning at the JCC
PreSchool occurs through
first-hand experience, hands
on exploration, play and
discovery, and planned pro-
jects. All the dimension of our

benefit from the wonderful
participation of the rabbis, and
we thank them for their time
and enthusiasm.

Interfaith Community Prayer Brunch Wedding Announcement
The Tampa Bay area has
grown significantly over the
years. Residents are no longer
just from the traditions and
cultural backgrounds of Chris-
tianity and Judaism. Large
numbers of people practising
Baha'i, Buddhism, Hinduism
and Islam now live and work
here. Native American Indians
with their own rich religious
traditions also are included.
The Tampa Interfaith Com-
mittee is an ad hoc group form-
ed by a number of individuals
and organizations for the ex-
press purpose of recognizing
and celebrating the religious
diversity in the Tampa Bay
Area. The Committee
challenges everyone to
demonstrate a similar will-
ingness to stand up for inter-
religious respect and freedom
as contained in the First
Amendment of the U,S.
Non-pork and non-meat
choices will be available to ac-
commodate the spectrum of
religious dietary needs.
Individual tickets are $10
each. Groups may reserve
tables of ten at $100 per table.
Gifts or contributions which
exceed the ticket price are en-
couraged to help underwrite
attendance by youth and the
financially disadvantaged. For
information about the brunch
contact the National Con-
ference of Christian and Jews
at 223-2721 in Tampa.

munities in the area.

Arab Received Jewish Kidney
Still Hates Jews!
Post Science
And Health Reporter
Reprint Jerusalem Post
(International Edition) April
2, 1988
The staff at a Jerusalem
hospital last week very reluc-
tantly treated a 19-year-old
Arab woman with kidney pro-
blems who openly cursed Jews,
although she had received a
kidney five years ago from a
yeshiva student murdered by
terrorists in Hebron.
The patient, from Nablus,
was admitted to the same
hospital where she had
undergone dialysis before the
transplant. Staffers recalled
that, as a girl, even after
receiving the life-saving
kidney, she shouted epithets
against Jews, and said she
wished more Jews would die to
provide organs for Arabs. The
yeshiva student's parents had
offered his organs for
transplant, and the Arab girl
was the only potential reci-
pient with the suitable tissue
The staffers who
remembered her thought that
after having received the gift
of life from a Jew, she would
have changed her tone, if not
her mind. But they were as-
tounded to hear her as vocally
anti-Jewish as before. She also
insisted on wearing a T-shirt
with Arafat's picture on it.
Some staffers said they were
reluctant to treat her, but did
so because of their legal and
moral obligations to provide
the care any patient needs.
Meanwhile, at the same
hospital, an East Jerusalem
woman was admitted this
week with a broken hip she
had suffered during a visit to
Jordan. According to the
woman, the Jordanians had
refused to treat her, saying
she should go to an Israeli

smile never left Mr. Chechik's
face as he walked from the ac-
tivity room with a new found
friend, heading to the chapel
for a game of checkers.
"After my home, this is the
place I like to be," said Mr.
Chechik, smiling broadly. "I
enjoy every minute of it.
There's always something in-
teresting to do."
Mr. Chechik is a participant
in Menorah Manor's Day Resi-
dent Program. The program,
which began Feb. 2, offers
structured daily activities for
the elderly living in the com-
munity who need a caregiver
during the day. Participants
are provided with motivation
and stimulation through ac-
tivities such as music, dance,
current events, intergenera-
tional programs, discussion
groups, baking, field trips and
much more. Enhancing in-
dependence, making new
friends and meeting new
challenges in a supportive at-
mosphere are also definite
goals of the program.
Such programs are not
readily available in many com-
munities, although the need
clearly exists. The Day Resi-
dent Program has been design-
ed not only for the participant,
but also for the family, who
sometimes need a break from
the position of fulltime
"Respite time for the
caregiver or spouse is a vital
component of the Day Resi-
dent Program," said Nancy
Isaacson, program director.
"It is also important for them
to have time by themselves to
attend to their own interests
and their own lives, without
feeling guilty about neglecting
their loved one."
Mrs. Chechik agrees that the
program has had a positive im-
pact on her husband's attitude,
and on her own. She said her
husband feels comfortable and
content with the program, and
looks forward to the days
spent at the Manor.
"I'm very happy with the
program," said Mrs. Chechik.
"In our case, it's just really
perfect for Sam right now. He
really enjoys it, and it shows."
Mrs. Chechik also said that
the program enables them to
spend more quality time

"With Sam here during the
day, I do a lot of the things I
didn't have time for, like er-
rands and taxes but it
gives us more time together to
share," she said. "I also know
that he is getting the atten-
tion, love and care he needs,
along with a daily routine."
This routine begins at 10
a.m. with a 'good morning'
meeting in the chapel, and con-
tinues with a newspaper
reading group. The par-
ticipants are also mainstream-
ed into the daily activities of
Menorah Manor residents,
which allows for additional
peer socialization. Usually
after lunch, those in the pro-
gram share quiet time talking,
reading and watching televi-
sion while relaxing in lounge
Meals are provided during
the course of the day, in-
chiding a light continental
breakfast, lunch and an after-
noon snack. The cost per day is
$20; rehabilitative and an-
cillary services are offered at
an additional charge.
Hundreds of brochures have
been distributed throughout
the community publicizing the
program. Posters have been
designed, printed and are
displayed at area temples,
restaurants and human service
agencies. Those interested in
displaying the brochures or
posters, or anyone interested
in attending the program
should contact Ms. Isaacson at

Non Jews in the Soviet Union
An alarming negative
development has accompanied
and flourished under Gor-
bachev's policy of "glasnost"
the proliferation of na-
tionalistic anti-Semitic groups
such as Pamyat and
Fatherland. The openness of
glasnost has provided these
hate groups with an opportuni-
ty for a public forum to spread
their message.
Soviet Refuseniks are very
concerned and are sending let-
ters of appeal to the western
world for help, to demand an
end to this wave of anti-Jewish
propaganda. "Twenty years of
anti-Zionist propaganda in the
mass media have now born
fruit. Anti-Semitic fires which
have smoldered in the depths
of Soviet society have now
burst into the open in the form
of Pamyat. In seeking reasons
for the destruction of tradi-
tional Russian culture and
social order, Pamyat has found
a suitable and defenseless
enemy to be blamed for all the
failures and mistakes of the
past years the Jewish

Soviet Jews released an

of an "open letter" by non-

to Secretary Yakovlev, head of
the Central Committee of the
Communist Party, and to

ing the pervasive anti-

The signators were compelled
to write and send the docu-
ment to the West: "For us,
Soviet citizens of non-Jewish
extraction, our silence may

The authors write: "In the
existing instability, aggressive
Russian nationalism the
manifestations of which are
not limited to "Pamyat"
aspires to become a real
political force and suggests its
own national-socialistic form
of "perestroika." In such a
situation, Soviet Jews have
reason to be apprehensive,"
according to the nine signers
of the document.
Pamela Cohen, president of
the UCSJ action says, "This
action, taken by prominent
non-Jewish intellectuals inside
the Soviet Union, is an ex-
traordinary, courageous and
principled act of conscience.
They have perceived it to be
their responsibility to speak
publicly against their govern-

risk they have taken must be
viewed as a measure of the
severity of the potential
