1988 Campaign
Approaches $1 Million
For the fourth con-
secutive year the Tam-
pa Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
Campaign will top the one
million dollar mark. The major
question facing Federation
and agency leadership is "how
close can we come to reaching
our 1988 goal of $1,370,000?"
According to Walter
Kessler, 1988 Cam-
paign Chairman, "it is
conceivable that this current
campaign can reach its stated
goal if those remaining in-
dividuals who have made their
commitments will give at an
increased level. The Women's
Division has been able to main-
tain a 20 percent increase and
should reach its $300,000 goal.
If the remaining cards in the
general campaign do as well,
then the goal will be in sight,"
Hadassah Spring
Region Conference
Kessler concluded.
All campaign workers
have been asked to
complete their cards
and several clean-up telephone
sessions have been scheduled
for May.
Anyone who has not
been contacted is en-
couraged to call the
Federation office at 875-1618
to make their 1988 pledge.
There are too many peo-
ple depending upon our
support to let down on
our efforts at this point,"
stated Doug Conn, President
of the Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion. "We will'double our ef-
forts," Conn continued, "until
we are satisfied that every
Jewish family in our communi-
ty has been given the oppor-
tunity to participate in this im-
portant campaign. We cannot

Holocaust Memorial At MacDill
Members of the Tampa Jewish community who are survivors of
the Nazi Holocaust are pictured above participating in the candle
lighting ceremony in memory of the six million Jews and over one
million Christians who died in concentration camps. The
ceremony is always a very emotional and moving portion of the
annual community Yom Hashoah observance.
BASE. Fla. The MacDill Air
Force Base Chapel held an
observance for Holocaust Day
of Remembrance Wednesday
April 20 at 11 a.m. The obser-
vance was open to everyone on
Guests included Rabbi Ken-
neth R. Berger and Holocaust
survivor Cantor William
Hauben. Rabbi Berger led the
reading and comment on the
Holocaust. Cantor Hauben
also participated in the
ceremony and talked about his
experiences associated with
the Holocaust. Both men are
from Rodeph Sholom in
The remembrance was in
honor of the 9 million innocent
civilians, 6 million of whom
were Jews, that were exter-
minated in Nazi concentration
camps during World War II.
The Holocaust ended when
allied forces under Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
liberated the concentration
camps in 1945.
President Ronald Reagan
said of this year's observances,
"Remembrance has a power
for good that is all its own. Let
us make remembrance then,
always in the manner and the
spirit of those who liberated
the concentration camps and
freed and cared for survivors.
These soldiers came not in con-
quest but in compassion, not to
kill and enslave but to free and
to heal. Let our remembrance
ever be thus and it will be a
resolution true and noble:
Never again."

visiting the sick, helping the synagogues and dedicating
himself to others, according to his long-time friend and part
of the committee to honor Barney, Sy Wolf. Jacob
Steinberg was chairman of the committee and he was
recently installed as the new post Commander. A wonder-
ful honor for a very deserving man. Congratulations!

Two Rejoin
Labor Party and the Likud
each added a minister to the
unity coalition government by
mutual agreement. They .are
familiar faces.
Moshe Arens, a former
defense minister and close
associate of Premier Yitzhak
Shamir in Likud's Herut wing,
returned to the Cabinet as a
minister without portfolio, the
rank he held when he quit the
government seven months ago
because of its decision to scrap
the Lavi fighter plane project.
Former Health Minister
Mordechai Gur, a Laborite,
also re-entered the Cabinet
without portfolio. He had
resigned in October 1986,
refusing to serve under
Shamir, who took over as
prime minister at that time
under the Labor-Likud rota-
tion of power agreement.
Neither man will serve in the
10-member Inner Cabinet,
Israel's top policy-making
body, consisting of five Labor
and five Likud ministers.
AACHEN, West Germany
The Jewish community
was stunned by the arrest
here of an Israeli citizen and
Hebrew teacher, Shimon
Or, on charges of spying for
the KGB, the Soviet secret
service. Or was one of four
immigrants among six West
Germans taken into custody
for allegedly passing
classified information to the
KGB about a Eurojet
fighter-plane project.
Hillel Students
Sunday, May 1 the
students of Hillel are having
their first annual musical
showcase at Schaarai Zedek.
The program is under the
direction of Mrs. Allyson
Petrone, co-ordinator of the
music program at Hillel. She
has divided the concert into
three parts. The younger
students, kindergarten and
first grade, will sing a few
Hebrew and English songs.
The second, third and fourth
grades will perform a Broad-
way song and songs from the
Charlie Brown musical. The
older groups, fifth, sixth,
seventh, and eighth grades
will sing a medley of 50's
songs, a couple of Broadway
selections, and a spiritual. We
will also hear a few violin and
piano solos.
The performance will start
at 3 p.m.; a reception will be
held following the program.
All are welcome.
Clockwise from top, David Anton, Tampa attorney speaks to
Men's Club about estate planning. Listening intently are Martin

Add Life To The Years
Enhancing Life
Through Menorah Manor's
Day Resident Program
Menorah Manor wants to
make sure quality of life does
not cease when people become
The home is reaching out to
the community through its
Day Resident Program. The
two-month-old program offers
not only respite for caregivers,
it also offers friendship, good
times and new experiences for
the active elderly living
The program offers an alter-
native to becoming home-
bound, bored and lonely. It
was initially geared toward
older persons living with a
caretaker who need struc-
tured, stimulating and motiva-
tional programs. Day residen-
cy is also ideal for active older
people living independently in
the community who want ac-
tivities and socialization with
other people. Half the current
participants belong to the lat-
ter group, and agree the pro-
gram fills their days with
quality time.
By increasing their socializa-
tion level, the program has had
an impact on the participant's
daily lives. The program may
replace a significant role that
is lost through retirement or
the death of a spouse. Par-
ticipants have also formed a
strong bond of friendship
among each other.
"The supportive atmosphere
we have here has really
fostered warm, caring rela-
tionships between the par-
ticipants," said Program
Director Nancy Isaacson.
"We're pleased to be able to to
give the participant a good
feeling coming to the program.
They really look forward to it
and enjoy it."
One of the more popular ac-
tivities is the Men's Club,
which meets each Monday
morning and usually features a
speaker. Last month's topics
of discussion included politics,
estate planning and sexuality.
This gives the male par-
ticipants a feeling of com-
radery, and provides them
with an opportunity to speak
freely about problems. The
time is also spent exchanging
ideas, playing-poker or wat-
ching sports videos.
"I do enjoy the time I spend
here," said participant Louis
Cox. "We always have
something to keep us busy and
Ms. Isaacson and therapist
Bonnie Haire keep par-
ticipants involved and in-
terested through a variety of
activities, including lectures,
baking, card games, current
events and field trips. The
group has recently picnicked
at Straub Park, visited John
Pass Boardwalk, and St.
Petersburg Historical
Museum, and the beach.

Isaacson at 345-2775.

Seek Direct Flights To Israel
Israel is now issuing invita-
tions that Soviet Jews need to
apply for exit visas with the re-
quirement that they go direct-
ly to Israel via Romania. The
move is an effort by Israel to
stop most Soviet emigrants
from going to other countries,
including the United States.
But an Israeli Embassy
source, who confirmed that the
new invitations have been sent
out for the last month, stress-
ed that for now, there is no
change in how Soviet Jews
who receive exit visas leave
the USSR.
Emigrants can go to
Bucharest, as a small number
have done for the last six to
eight months, or to Vienna, as
most emigrants do, and then
on to either Israel or another
If the Israeli requirement
were to become mandatory,
those who receive invitations
would not receive their exit
visas until they reached
Bucharest and would thus
have no choice but to go on to
Karl Zukerman, executive
vice president of HIAS, sug-
gested that this mandatory
policy would not go into effect
until Israel is allowed to open a
mission or consulate in the
Soviet Union.
Negotiations have been go-
ing on for some time between
Israel and the Soviet Union,
which broke diplomatic rela-
tions after the 1967 Six Day
The Dutch Embassy in
Moscow continues to handle
the invitations from Israel,
and no changes have been
made despite the new wor-
ding, according to Jerry Good-
man, executive director of the
National Conference on Soviet
Both Goodman and the
Israeli Embassy source said
the new requirement would
not prevent Soviet Jews who
have relatives in the United
States, Britain, Canada or
other countries from seeking
to join them. Since last July,
the Soviets have permitted
persons with relatives in the
United States and other coun-
tries to receive invitations
from them, and not just from
Israel, as was the previous
Goodman noted that for the
past year-and-a-half, the Na-
tional Conference has ad-
vocated a "two-track" ap-
proach whereby Soviet Jews
who want to go to Israel can do
so directly, while those who
want to go to the United
States or another western
country can also go there
directly without the subter-
fuge of asking for a visa to
Israel. Morris Abram, chair-
man of the National Con-
ference, and Edgar Bronfman,
president of the World Jewish
Congress, raised the Roma-
nian route directly with Soviet
officials when they were in
Moscow in March 1987.

Kate Douglas Wiggin
At a time when society is
looking for answers for the
future, and we as parents seek
to achieve our promise of
dedication to the uniqueness of
each child; Hillel offers ex-
cellence in education by sup-
porting the total child in his
progressive movement toward
realizing his full potential.
As parents, we look at our
children to fulfill dreams of the
future. We want them to love
learning, love school, and be
loved. We hope life offers them
the opportunity to be intellec-
tually curious, develop values,
be able to question, and to ex-
perience our living heritage. In
pursuit of these goals, each
family offers the child the op-
portunity to be special and ex-
perience the singularly rewar-
ding relationship that a family
As a family's experiences
are all interrelated, so are the
many aspects of human
development. Physical, social,
cognitive, emotional and
ethical aspects of behavior all
act upon and react to one
another extensively and in-
spearably. We cannot produce
any type of change in one area
without giving sufficient con-
sideration to the prerequisite
or consequences in the other
areas of development. All
these areas are interrelated
with culture, physical growth
and psychology of the growing
child to make him/her unique.
It is thus uniqueness in each
child that we must provide for
as we select a school with a
distrinct educational
philosophy and purpose suited
to that individual.
Hillel is a superior academic
institution where excitement
and enthusiasm for learning
are visible daily. Small classes
with individualized instruction
provide a comfortable learning
environment for each child.
The students are offered an in-
tellectual challenge in secular
and Judaic study that builds a
strong foundation for meeting
the expectations and demands
of the best public and private
schools. Hillel school places
heavy emphasis on in-
dividualized study. The
development of responsibility
for learning is shared by the
student. The evidence suppor-
ting its success is apparent by
the standardized test results in
which each class performed
two grades above the national
norms. The statistics tell us
that the majority of day school
graduates, not only excel in
their chosen fields, but go on
to become leaders in their com-
munities as well. With its pro-
ven record of top academic
achievements, Hillel has cer-
tainly'equipped'it's graduates
to succeed in' tHeir^careers.'.
The children actively par-
ticipate in extracurricular ac-
tivities, fine arts, community
projects and sports. We en-
courage our youngsters to care
about each other. Cross-grade
friendships are common, and
there is a sense of nurturing
between older and younger
students. Human values are
held in esteem, and our feel-
ings of "family" are evident to
any visitor.
For students who have had
an extensive background as
well as those with a mdre
limited one, an individualized
Judaic studies program can be
offered. Integration of Jewish
vales with the American socie-
ty is conceptualized as part of
the Hebrew program.

Sigma Delta Taus is the first

Executive Vice President
Tampa Jewish Federation
If Not Now- When?
There are many things we do to express our
"Jewishness." We join a synagogue, keep Kosher,
attend services, send our children to Sunday
School, contribute financially to many important
Jewish causes, to mention just a few. But, there is
one item, that should also join our list of "expres-
sions of our Judaism." That is a visit to the State
of Israel.
We take trips, vacations to all kinds interesting
places but the one area that has not been high on
our priority list is to visit Israel. It doesn't mat-
ter with who or how you go to Israel, the important
thing is to go! A fabulous trip recently returned
from Israel with Rabbi Birnholz and Congregation.
Schaarai Zedek members. Rabbi Berger and
Rodeph Sholom members have had several suc-
cessful group tours. So has the Jewish National
Fund and Israel Bonds. And, of course, there have
been and will be numerous missions to Israel
through the Tampa Jewish Federation, and the
United Jewish Appeal.
While there is no scientific survey of the number
of individuals living in Tampa who have been to
Israel, it is probably safe to say that it is less than
10 percent of our Jewish population.
What an opportunity we are missing for
ourselves and our children. What an opportunity to
show our solidarity with the people of Israel. One
of the last official acts as Israel's Ambassador to
the United Nations, Benjamin Netanyahu cir-
culated the following letter: '
"Many of the recent reports from Israel are
distorted and unbalanced. One of these distor-
tions is the position of American Jews. Israelis
are led to believe that most are either hostile to
Israel, or, at best, indifferent to its plight and its
struggle. Nothing could be further from the
truth.- The overwhelming majority of American
Jews are constant and unwaivering in their sup-
port for Israel. They are politically active, they
offer material support, they correct media
But there is one other way in which Jews today
can express their solidarity with Israel, a direct
way that powerfully reinforces the ties between
the Jewish State and the Diaspora. I refer to the
UJA/Federation Missions to Israel. By touring
Israel, visiting its towns and villages, seeing the
fruitful work of how the UJA/Federation Cam-
paign aids so many persons through the Jewish
Agency and the JDC, and meeting Israelis in all
walks of life, young American Jews will see an
Israel different from the one commonly por-
trayed in the media. They will see a people com-
mitted not only to survive but to thrive as Jews in
the Jewish homeland. And in the act of express-
ing solidarity with their people in a time of trial,
these Jews will reaffirm their own Jewish identi-
ty the indispensible compass to give meaning
and purpose to their lives. This is why I am pleas-
ed to endorse UJA's important missions program
at this crucial time."
There are a number of Federation UJA spon-
sored missions available in the near future. They
include: June 26 July 6, Summer Family Mission;
July 10-20, Summer Family Mission; October 9-19,
Jubilee Pre-Mission and Israel; October 22-31,
Young Leadership Mission.
Information on the above Israel trips can be ob-
tained by calling the Tampa Jewish Federation.
Act today! If not now when?

Senator Inouye
Addresses JNF
"Anyone with a knowledge
of the struggles of the Jewish
people throughout history can
recognize the importance of
the State of israe," stated
Senator Daniel Inouye of
Hawaii to 200 professional and
lay leaders from the United
States, Great Britain and
Canada at the recent Jewish
National Fund National All-
Day Conference, held at the
Mayflower Hotel in
Washington, D.C.
Senator Inouye related his
support of Israel and his ap-
preciation of JNF for its role in
the revitalization of Israel's
land. He spoke of his ex-
periences during World War II
and his awareness of the con-
centration camps as they were
liberated by Allied troops. He
emphasized Israel's strategic
importance as the United
States' most reliable friend in
the Middle East, and touched
upon Israel's cooperation in in-
telligence information as the
best return on the U.S. invest-
ment in Israel. Senator Inouye
served as the first chairman of
the select Senate Committee
on Intelligence and as chair-
man of the "Iran-Contra"
Among the dignitaries sen-
ding greetings to the con-
ference were President
REagan, Vice President Bush
and Israeli President Chaim
Herzog. Raymond Patt, JNF
national missions chairman,
served as chairman of the
Also addressing the con-
ference was Moshe Arad,
Israeli Ambassador to the
United States, who presented
an analysis of the current
unrest in the territories and
reaffirmed his confidence in
the strong ties between the
U.S. and Israel. He praised the
support demonstrated for
Israel by its American friends,
and singled out JNF of
America, lauding its donors'
sponsorship of crucial land
reclamation and afforestation
Moshe Rivlin, JNF world
chairman, came from
Jerusalem to deliver a stirring
address on "The New National
Priorities of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund." He contrasted
the newborn state of Israel 40

Using T.O.P. for
Charitable Bequests
TOP Just as the Federa-
tion is the central Jewish ad-
dress in our community, the
Tampa Orlando Pinellas
(T.O.P.) Jewish Foundation is
the endowment and bequest
umbrella for all of our Jewish
organizations and synagogues.
Why would someone want to
leave a gift to their favorite
Jewish agency through T.O.P.,
instead of directly to the
organization itself?
One reason is knowing that
T.O.P. will establish an endow-
ment fund and make gifts in
perpetuity in his/her name.
"Our organization has had
varying degrees of stability
and financial security over the
years," said one agency presi-
dent. "I'm afraid that if I leave
$25,000.00 to the organization,
it will be 'blown' on carpeting,
electric bills, or other
operating expenses in a year
or two." By putting a bequest
in her will, she was able to
establish an endowment that
will provide an annual gift and
ensure that her family's name
will be perpetuated.
Another attractive aspect of
using T.O.P. is the ability to
name several beneficiary
organizations, with the con-
fidence that it will be managed
properly. In 1985, a Tampa
donor passed away, leaving
her entire estate to T.O.P. Her
will stipulated that the
$230,000.00 bequest should be
used to establish an endow-
ment, and that all interest
earned each year be divided
among five agences (including
the Federation) and two
As T.O.P. continues to
receive similar permanent en-
dowments from generous be-
quests, it will provide a finan-
cial cushion for services to the
needy, the elderly, youth and
special projects that are
developed in our community.
It will also provide for a stable
future for the institutions
which we cherish during our
Bequests to charitable
organizations are tax-
deductible, and provide an ex-
cellent opportunity for reduc-
ing your estate taxes. In May,
T.O.P. will be offering a free
one-hour seminar on wills and
bequests. For more informa-
tion, contact your attorney, or

credited JNF for much of the
monumental growth
throughout Israel. He called
upon conference participants
to join in meeting JNF's future
The conference luncheon
was held in honor of Avrum M.
Chudnow, Milwaukee lawyer
and land developer, who has
spearheaded a campaign for
the establishment of a major
JNF tourist center at Timna
Valley National Park, site of
the famed King Solomon's
pillars and cooper mines. For
his commitment to JNF and
support of the Timna project, a
JNF plaque of appreciation
was presented to Mr. Chud-
now and his wife, Anita.
A detailed report was
presented by U.S. Forestry
Service representatives
Michael J. Rogers, forest
supervisor of the Cleveland
National Forest, and Kimberly
A. Brandel, fuels specialist,
Fire and Aviation Manage-
ment, on the results of their
examination of the
devastating forest fires that
took place in Israel last year,
and of the general situation
regarding fire prevention in
Israel. In appreciation of their
efforts, which will aid in JNF's
upgrading of Israel's fire-
fighting systems, a special
JNF award was presented to
Al West, deputy chief of the
State and Aviation Forestry
Division of the U.S. Forest
The JNF National All-Day
Conference is held biennially;
during alternate years, JNF of
America convenes its National
Assembly in Israel. The next
Assembly in Israel is schedul-
ed for March 1989.
In order to keep our records up-to-date, we would appreciate
those persons returning to the North for the summer months, to
notify the Jewish Federation office of their summer address.

Letters To "Dear Janice"
I don't know what is wrong with me, and neither does my
doctor. That is why I am writing to you. Sometimes I have
headaches, not just a single headache, but often several
over a period of three or four days. I take pain medication,
and that sometimes gives me an upset stomach, and I end
up with stomach pains. And periodically, even when I
haven't been exercizing or doing any strenuous work
around the house, my back goes out of whack, and I get ter-
rible lower back pain. The last round I had with my back
laid me up in bed for almost a veek. I can't afford to miss
days at work like this. I have a very stressful job in human
relations, and I deal with difficult people all day long. There
isn't anyone else around at my job to do the work if I'm out
sick, so I pay a penalty by being out because there's always
more to do when I return to work. Don't tell me to get
another job, either. It's very hard to get a job with the
salary and benefits I have with this company, and I already
have so much time invested in my retirement, that I could
never duplicate it anywhere else, and I'd lose all of the time
invested in this retirement plan. My doctor says my pro-
blems are caused by "nerves." I'm afraid that I'm falling
apart, and I'm only 42 years old. What do you think?
First of all, a complete physical is in order if you have not
already had one. While you say that you have seen a physi-
cian, you don't mention what kind, and I have no idea what
kinds of tests he or she may have given you. You should be
aware that illnesses such as the ones you describe, whether
caused by psychological stresses or by physical causes still
hurt the same. Headaches, lower back problems, and
stomach problems are all problems that can be caused or in-
creased by stress. And your job is highly stressful. A
psychiatrist might ask, "What is the reward for you when
you get sick? You have to take time out from work." And
this may be what you need. Can you take a vacation? Have
you considered a stress reduction course to help you handle
your job more easily? Have you thought about short-term
counseling to help you over the hurdle? Give these con-
sideration, and let me know how you make out.
My parents are in their early seventies and fortunately,
they are able to take care of themselves physically and
financially. They have just about everything that they need.
In a few weeks, my dad will be celebrating his birthday
again, and this is the problem. Every year, I have tried to
buy something that my mom or dad would like, or at least
that I thought and hoped they would like for their bir-
thdays. But every time I buy them a birthday present, they
tell me they "have everything", and just send them a card.
My parents have always been good to me, and to me a card
is not enough. But I also feel rejection every time I buy a
birthday present that they return to the store. I know they
will not accept a check, so that is out, too. What can I do to
show my mom and dad that I honor their birthdays without
buying a gift?
It is certainly refreshing to know you care enough to give
each of your parents a birthday remembrance. There are
some other things you can try, other than a gift or cash.
You could take them out to eat in the restaurant of their
choice, or you could give them tickets, or go with them, to a
show they might enjoy attending. Some people who read,
or enjoy browsing, like magazine subscriptions which con-
tinue giving all year long. 5 they own a VCR, they might
enjoy your giving, or renting, them some movies to see at
home. How about a simonize job on your dad's car if he still
drives? If you think creatively, you're sure to come up with
something they will accept. And your dad and mom should
be grateful that you want to do soomething for them and
not return a gift given in good faith.
Letters to "Dear Janice" should be mailed to the Jewish
Floridian or to "Dear Jancie," do Tampa Jewish Family
Services, 112 S. Magnolia Street, Tampa, Florida.
Dream Comes True
After 16-Year Wait for Exit Visa
NEW YORK Alexander
Lerner, 74-year-old world-
famous Soviet cyberneticist
who became a refusenik and
waited 16 years for permission
to leave the USSR, has em-
barked on a brand-new scien-
tific career at the Weizmann
The Weizmann Institute of
Science is recognized as the
foremost research center in
Israel and enjoys wide respect
in the international scientific
Alexander Lerner
"Coming to Weizmann was
my hope since 1971," Lerner
said during a brief New York
stopover this week on his way
to lectures in California, New
Zealand, and Australia.
"When I first sat down in my
new office at the Institute in
Rehovot, it was like a dream. I
was afraid I would wake up
and find myself back in
At Weizmann, Lerner is pur-
suing many new ideas he
developed during his long
period of banishment from the
official Soviet scientific
"Never in my life were my
research results as good as
when I was a refusenik," he
observed. Alone or in coopera-
tion with other refusenik
scientists, Lerner developed
new approaches to sociological
theory and to the use of
mathematical tools in medicine
and biology. One of his prin-
cipal areas of concentration in-
volves plans for improvements
in the design and construction
of artificial hearts.
Up to 1971, Lerner was the
director of the Department of
Large Systems Control
Theory at the Soviet Academy
of Sciences and Professor at
the Moscow Institute of
Physics and Technology. He
enjoyed many privileges, in-
cluding the freedom to par-
ticipate in scientific meetings
in the U.S. and elsewhere out-
side the USSR. But when he
applied for an exist visa to
Israel, everything changed.
He was dismissed from all
his posts and deprived of
laboratory and computer
facilities. Under conditions of
severe harassment by the KGB
and other Soviet authorities,
Lerner conducted weekly
seminars of refusenik scients
at his Moscow apartment and
kept abreast of world
developments in his field.
Friends from abroad smuggled
in books and journals.
At the same time, Lerner
became the "foreign minister
of Aliyah" for the refusenik
community in Moscow.
Distinguished visitors came to
his home to discuss civil rights
and emigration prospects for
Soviet Jewry.
Among these were public
figures such as Sen. Ted Ken-
nedy, the late Sen. Hubert H.
Humphrey and Australian
Prime Minister Bob Hawke.
Born in 1913 in the Ukrai-
nian town of Vinnitsa, Lerner
a widower left Russia
with his son Vladimir and
family. His daughter Sonya
had preceded him in 1975, ear-
ning her PhD in mathematics
at the Weizmann Institute.
In addition to Prof. Lerner,
two other family members are
proud to be working at the In-
stitute: his son-in-law in the
atomic accelerator program,
and his sn in one of Weiz-
mann's pioneering solar
energy projects.

Florida Commissioner Conner
Visits Israel
Israeli agriculture is on the
move and competing effective-
ly in the European market by
providing quality products
which command premium
prices, according to Commis-
sioner of Agriculture Doyle
Conner, at the invitation of
the Minister of Agriculture
Aryeh Nehamkin, toured the
country's agriculture last
week to study the production,
processing, marketing and
research methods used to pro-
duce many of the same pro-
ducts grown in Florida.
Conner commended the
foreign agriculturalist from
"taking a dry country and
making it productive."
Through innovative irrigation
methods, for which the coun-
try is world renowned, Conner
said a minimal volume of water
yields the optimum in results.
Production yields are among
the highest in the world.
After touring various
facilities throughout Israel,
the Commissioner said he
looks for more favorable ex-
changes between Israel and
Florida, leading perhaps to a
joint research agreement,
similar to Israeli agreements
with Texas and
Commissioner Conner-said
"although we produce many of
the same commodities and
have similar growing seasons
which make us competitors on
the world market, we can still
learn a lot from each other."

Menorah Manor now has an
American flag waving proudly
outside the building, thanks to
a presentation made to the
Residents and the Home.
The Gulf Coast District
Council of Jewish War
Veterans of America spon-
sored the presentation, and
Manor founder Mrs. Jackie
Jacobs donated the flag to the
Home in loving memory of her
late husband, Murray Jacobs.
Many of the Residents left
their wheelchairs to stand
many of them saluting dur-
ing the Pledge of Allegiance to
the new flag.
Members of the Gulf Coast
District Council attended the
presentation, made to the
Residents before lunch. Mrs.
Jacobs spoke of her husband's
extensive community involve-
ment, and of the impact his
philanthropy had on the
building of Menorah Manor.
"He spent a large part of his
life setting down roots," said
Mrs. Jacobs of her husband,
who was a member of Jewish
War Veterans for many years.
"He spent a lifetime doing
mitzvah for others."
The Jewish War Veterans
are quite involved in the com-
munity, working in schools,
hospitals, and homes like
Menorah Manor.
"Tnis is one 6f our
Americanism programs," said
Ben Wisotzky, Gulf Coast
District commander. "We are
the patriotic voice of American
Jewry. We let the community
know we are Jews who fought
for our country."

Diaspora Jews Will Not Be Disenfranchised
Jews of the Diaspora have a
responsibility to express their
vies on the safety and security
of Israel, even if these views
diverge from those of one of
Israel's major political parties,
said the executive director of
the American Jewish
Henry Siegman, giving the
"state of the union" address at
the organization's 1988 Na-
tional Biennial Convention in
Philadelphia, told delegates
that to disagree with Prime
Minister Shamir's plan for
Middle East peace "does not
make us accomplices of a 'non-
Jewish, anti-Israel front," as
Mr. Shamir had said to a
delegation of American Jewish
leaders in Jerusalem earlier
this month.
"The difference between the
views of the Prime Minister of
Israel and the views of that
half of Israel's population that
disagrees with him has been
falsely presented as one bet-
ween those who worry about
Israel's physical security and
those who worry about it's
soul," Mr. Siegman said.
"Both sides are concerned
about Israel's physical survival
and security, and the children
of both sides, not only those
who belong to the Likud, have
fought and died in israel's
Mr. Siegman pointed out that
important elements in the
coalition that supports the
Prime Minister have publicly
disparaged the importance
they attached to democratic
values and humanitarian con-
siderations, which are likely to
be eroded even further in the
event the occupation of the
territories persists indefinite-
ly. "Speculation about forced
mass transfers of population
has moved from the Kahane fr-
inge to more centrist elements
in that coalition," Mr.
Siegman said. "Religious par-
ties, so important a backbone
of the determined opposition
to territorial compromise
openly affirm the supremacy
of religious law over
democratic values."
"For these reasons, many
American Jews, deeply attack-
ed to democratic values, have
declared their solidarity with
that part of Israel's citizenry
that more closely affirms their
values. Surely, this is no
reason to charge them with in-
terference in a politically par-
tisan way in Israel's internal
Directing his remarks to
Prime Minister Shamir, Mr.
Siegman declared that every
Jew has the "right to speak up
when he believes certain
policies profoundly violate a
legacy that belongs to the
Jewish people collectively,
even if finally only the citizens
of Israel will vote and make
those decisions on which their
security depends. No one will
read us out of the Jewish peo-
ple, or sever our ties of love
and devotion to the State of
Israel," Mr. Siegman said.
"The precious capital of our
2000 year legacy belongs to
the entire Jewish people and
no one person or political party
may dispose of that precious
capital as they alone see fit."
Mr. Siegman noted that the
Palestinians may not be will-
ing to negotiate with Israel.
"They may not only refuse
reasonable political com-
promise in the territories but
may hold out for the dismantl-
ing of all of Israel." That is
precisely why the Likud
party's hardline position is so
unfortunate, he said, "for it
deflects the world's attention
from Palestinian rejectionism
and fixes it unfairly on Israel.
Mr. Siegman issued a call for
a "new Zionism" as a goal for
the American Jewish Congress
in the coming decade. He con-
cluded with the proposal that
"in the days and months ahead
the Americn Jewish Congress
work towards a reconvening of
a world Zionist congress that
will not only be world Jewry's
response to the U.N.'s in-
famous "Zionism is Racism"
resolution, but that will ar-
ticulte a new vision of Zionism
that is inclusionary and
Mr. Siegman called for the
rejection of a Zionism "that is
exclusionary, that
distinguishes even within
Israel itself between the so-
called "national camp" and
political parties that are im-
plicitly smeared as traitorous;
that distinguishes between the
Jewish people in Israel and
Jews outside of Israel, who
risk being accused of making
common cause with anti-
Semites if they express dissen-
ting views; that sees the Gen-
tile world as a monolith bent
on the Jewish people's destruc-
tion that is a Zionism of the
galut (exile), of an uncertain,
unproud and unfree people."
As the American Jewish
Congress delegates gathered
at the Convention embark on
their eight decade of existence
and on Israel's fifth decade,
Mr. Siegman called on them to
"dedicate themselves to a new
Zionism that is inclusionary;
that unites and does not
divide; that reflects the op-
timism, confidence and open-
ness of a truly free people."

No Ties
To Israel
People's Republic of China will
not establish diplomatic rela-

its policies, Haaretz reported
from London quoting the
Chinese foreign minister, Wu
"The time is not right at pre-
sent to establish diplomatic
ties with Israel, given the ex-
isting situation," the minister
said, according to Haaretz's
London correspondent.
He said China is interested
in participating in an interna-
tional conference as a solution
to the Middle East conflict.
But he would not say whether
the Beijing government would
recognize Israel as a precondi-
tion for its participation,
Haaretz reported.

PBS Special The 'Real' Julia
Muriel Gardiner's Story
In a memoir which became a
Hollywood film, American
author Lillian Hellman wrote a
"true" story about a heroine of
the Austrian resistance
Julia. The 'Real' Julia
Muriel Gardiner's Story, air-
ing Friday, May 13 at 10:00
p.m. on Channel 3, proposes
that Hellman's story was bas-
ed on the life of Dr. Muriel
Gardiner. As a medical student
in the 1930s, Gardiner risked
her life to help Jews and anti-
Nazis escape Hitler's terror.
While the film deals in part
with a literary controversy,
the story of Muriel Gardiner
stands on its own as an ac-
count of an heroic woman.
Although she came from great
wealth, Dr. Gardiner took a
stand for oppressed 'people
throughout her life. Her
modestry and her deep sense
of justice are revealed in inter-
views with colleages and
friends. Poet Stephen Spender
and former Austrian
chancellor Bruno Kreisky, are
among those interviewed in
the program.
At the age of 83, Dr. Gar-
diner tells much of her own
story. Among her
reminiscences is a meeting
with Sigmund Freud. Archival
footage is used here and
throughout the documentary
to portray the sweep of
dramatic pre-war history. The
Germans had invaded Austria
and the Socialsit party had
been outlawed. These events
provide the background for
Gardiner's story and she inter-
prets the fascist atmosphere of
1930s Italy and Germany. She
describes her gradual involve-
ment, while a medical student,

Gardiner carried out many
dangerous assignments. Once
she obtained false passports in

Muriel Gardiner, an
American psychiatrist and
psychoanalyst who, while a

amines the premise that Gar-

character "Julia" portrayed

The documentary points to
striking similarities between
the lives of Hellman's Julia
and Muriel Gardiner. Both
came from wealthy families,
studied at Oxford. They later
went to Vienna to seek
analysis with Freud and to
study medicine. Finally, both
worked heroically in the
Austrian underground. The
film also reveals how Hellman
learned of the Gardiner story.
In 1981 the Austrian govern-
ment awarded Dr. Gardiner
the Austrian Cross of Honor
for Science and Art, 1st Class.
In 1985, Wellealey College
honored her as a Distinguished
Alumnae with the following

AJCongress Pledges Welfare Reform
Asserting that the current
welfare system is "inadequate
(for) enabling the poor of
America to lead productive
lives," delegates at the Na-
tional Biennial Convention of
the American Jewish Congress
today voted unanimously in
favor of a resolution calling on
the Federal government to
enact legislatioon focusing on
the needs of the family unit.
The resolution asked the Ad-
ministration to extend welfare
eligibility to two-parent
families; initiate a more
agressive program to ensure
child support from absent
parents; provide education and
job training as well as place-
ment assistance to allow those
living below the poverty line a
chance to improve their lives;
maintaining eligibility for
Medicaid and child care ser-
vices to the working poor; pro-
viding minimal housing needs;
and setting up a system of i-
ymum standards and suppor-
ting apprpriate ocal in-
itiatives and experiments.
The Jewish orgaizatin ex-
pressed its belief that such
revisions are urgently needed
and pressed the government to
address the broader needs fr
low-income housing, economic
development, full e-ployment,
health benefits and other
domestic issues.
"AJCongress pledges to
work in coalition with other
concerned groups to make
welfare reform a top national
priority," the resolution
The National Biennial Con-
vention of the American
Jewish Congress was held in
Philadelphia from March 20-23
at the Sheraton Society Hill
Hotel. Delegates from zcross
the nation gathered to help
mark the 70th anniversary of
the Jewish organization.
Arabs Enter Missile Race
Israel's Arab neighbors, ex-
cept Jordan, have entered the
missile race, according to Gen.
Dan Shomron, the Israel
Defense Force chief of staff.
But the IDF possesses the
defensive and offensive power
to deter their use, Shomron
said in an Israel Radio inter-
view. He did not go into
details, but indicated the Arab
states were aware of Israel's
means of retaliation.
Shomron said the danger of
the missile race was the
tendency to develop chemical,
biological or nuclear weapons.
The Chinese-made CSS-2 in-
termediate range missiles
recently acquired by Saudi
Arabia are capable of carrying
nuclear warheads, but both
China and the Saudis have
denied they are so armed.
According to Shomron,
Israel's ability to strike back
has deterred the Arab states
from using chemical weapons
in their wars with Israel.
Egypt used chemical weapons
during its campaign in Yemen
in the 1960s, but not in the
1967 war with Israel, Shomron
pointed out.
Similarly, Syria had
chemical weapons at the time
of the 1973 Yom Kippur war,
but neither the Syrians nor the
Egyptians employed them
against Israel, even when their
armies on the ground were in
serious difficulties, the chief of
staff said.
The Arabs knew that Israel's
capability to hit back was far
greater, he said. Nevertheless,
there are gas masks available
for every Israeli citizen, should
the need arise. But the danger
of chemical warfare against
population centers is exag-
gerated, according to
Shomron. By closing doors and
windows the danger is greatly
reduced, he said.
Shomron also supported
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin's point made that air
power, in which Israel excels,
is a more effective attack
system than missiles. He noted
that while Syria's Soviet-made
Skud missiles can carry 100
tons of explosives, a warplane
Yom Hashoah and
Israel's 40th Year of Sisterhood
Where is the cake, a
symbol of sweetness
and what are the
candles burning for? Yom
Hashoah, commemorates the
Holocaust and this year we
commemorate Israel's 40th
year of statehood. Is a birth-
day cake with candles
Last month, March of
1988,1 visited Yad Vad
Shem, the Holocaust
Museum in Jerusalem along
with 500 other people, who
were in Israel for the
Volunteers for Israel program
Sar-El, the national project for
Volunteers for Israel. These
people came from the U.S! and
Canada to show solidarity for
Israel. To let Israel know, we
are with them in their hour of
trial, to show them we are con-
fident of their essential decen-
cy and love of mankind. We
share their commitment to
democratic values, and
recognize their yearning to
live in peace with their
neighbors. As we hear echoed
in the words of Foreign
Ministry Deputy S. Peres
when he called on Palestinians
for self-restraint, "We would
like to listen to our Palestinian
neighbors, but we hear no
messages. Stones are not
messages and messages do not
need the threat of stones."
Together with BOO
volunteers I visited Yad
Vad Shem to light the
candles within ourselves to see
and remember. The first
building we entered was the
Children's Holocaust Museum,
commemorating the one
million children who were kill-
ed in the Holocaust. In the
outer room beautiful childrens'
faces flaashed on a movie
screen, faces that reminded
me of my own children when
they were small. And then I
thought Yes, these faces are
my children; for all of those
who perished in the Holocaust
are the children of all the
world. Then we entered a
room pitch black, where we
walked around holding a hand
rail to help us keep our
balance. This room made you
feel as if you had stepped into
the galaxy of stars; into the
heavens. The only voices you
heard were the names of
children being called out, along
with their ages at death and
where they came from. I also
heard the stiffled sobs of the
grown men and women who
were in the room with me.
Yes, we all were lighting the
candles in our hearts in
As we left the Childrens'
Holocaust Museum we
walked along a path
where trees were planted to
commemorate the righteous
Gentiles, who hid Jews and
helped them escape, at the cost
of death for themselves and
their families. It was comfor-
ting to know; not all of the
world watched and stood idly
by, while millions of people
(Jews and Gentiles alike) went
to be slaughtered and gassed
at the death camps.
Many of the volunteers
for Israel asked, "why
of all the places in
Israel were we taken to visit
this ghastly place?" As we
gathered around the eternal
flames burning in a building
commemorating the Holocaust
the names of the camps were
read out loud: Auschwitz,
Dauchau, Buchenwald, Babi
Yar ... I was very aware of
the other volunteers crowded
around me, so close the air
seemed stifling. I felt very
claustrophobic and a nausea
swept over me. I wondered
how it must have been for
those who gathered close
together in the gas chambers,
with no way out.
And then simultaneously
we read: In the
presence of the flame, a
symbol of the slaughter.... In
the presence of the flame g
symbol of eternal memory....
In the presence of the flame
which we kindle our souls....
We join our sanctified six
million. We share in the
darkness of their fate, and in
the depths we sing their song
of hope.
The ceremony ended with
all of us singing Ani Ma
Amin, "I Believe" and I
could feel the hot tears roll
down my face. In the face of
slaughter and oppression that
crushed human feelings, we as
Jewish people and Israel as a
nation can still sing, "We
Believe"; in a better world, in
better times for all human be-
ings. There together we took
an oath: To remember it all, to
remember, not once to forget!
An oath, no morning shall see
us at flesh pots again. Lest
from this we learned nothing.
Where is the cake, a
symbol of sweetness
and what are the
candles burning for? The cake
is Israel, made from ingre-
dients of people from all over
the world. And the candles are
burning for peace, a wish yet
to come.

that carries five tons is much
more accurate.
Rabin said that Israel's air
force could drop 100 tons of
high explosives on enemy
population centers for every
ton delivered to Israel in a
missile attack.
Shomron maintained that
missiles cannot determine the
outcome of a war. He recalled
in that connection the stratgic
failure of V-l and V-2 rockets
Germany used to attack
British cities during the final
year of World War II.
Asked if Israel has joined the
missile race, Shomron replied,
"That's what I read in the
