The general appraisal of lead-

come to Washington, appears to
have been well-founded. Shamir

on the redeployment plans, Meri-

happens in Lebanon, but we still
intend to go on with our decision
to redeploy our forces."
According to political circles in
Jerusalem, the Reagan Adminis-
tration wants Israel to halt its re-
deployment until the fate of the
government of President Amin
Gemayel becomes clear. The cir-
cles say that the U.S. believes
that the Gemayel government
faces a real danger of total col-
lapse and that the purpose of the
Syrian-led military and political
campaigns against the Lebanese
government is to hasten its
demise. According to this assess-

We know that 21 year old Aileen Miller must be absolutely on
"Cloud 9" as she begins her law studies at Harvard Law School.
Aileen, the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Norman Miller, graduated
from the University of Michigan, in April, with Highest
Distinction Honors in History (which was her major). Her
proud parents were in Ann Arbor for Aileen s graduation. Aileen
is spending the summer living and working in Boston (so that
she can acclimate herself to her new city before the school term
begins). She is living with her 26 year old sister, Judi, who just
finished her second year of law school at Boston College.
Aileen was president of her Tampa BBG Chapter in 1977-78
and President of the North Florida Council of BBG in 1978-79.
She attended Congregation Schaarai Zedek where she was a
Confirmand and graduated from Chamberlain High School. Well
Aileen, your future certainly sounds exciting and bright. We
wish you a real successful year.
Our friends at Congregation Kol Ami have certainly been
busy lately with various activities:
One thing they have been doing is making the size of their
congregation grow! Congratulations to Karen and Andy Berger
on the birth of their son, Alexander Robs, to Lisa and Alan
Cohen on the birth of their daughter, Tara Melissa, to
Jacqueline and Aron Arson on the birth of their daughter, Sarah
Rachel, and to Janet and Arthur Simon, on the birth of their
daughter, Ashley Lauren.
Some recent trimmer travelers include Rich and Mary Kanter
who spent their vacation with their children at a dude ranch
(how sore are your legs ) and Helen* and Stu Silverman. who
had a wonderful time touring San Francisco and surrounding
areas while their children, Deborah and David entertained their
grandparents in Deerf ield Beach.
Lastly, we would like to welcome back to Tampa Dr. Steve
and Shelly Hirechorn and their children. Ami, Scott, Jessica,
Kurt, and Megan. The Hirschorn clan has returned after a two
year hiatus in Ann Arbor, Michigan where Steve was training
for an additional specialty. We're glad you're back!
Many congratulations to Marjorie Wittcoff, daughter of Mr.
nd Mrs. Richard Wittcoff, on her acceptance to the University
of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine. Our wishes for a most
successful and productive year in Gainesville.
In our last column, we welcomed Andrea Rebecca Levin,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Levin and granddaughter of
Flossie Cranor. Somehow we failed to mention that lucky
Andrea has another grandparent, too. Spencer is the son of
Claire Levin and the late Alfred Levin and Claire is a mighty
proud grandma!
Congratulations to Leon Mezrsh who was named "Agent of
the Year" for Pacific Mutual Ijfe Insurance Company. He is

month ago from Los Angeles. Stuart moved to L.A. as a teen-
ager but was born in New York. Cindy, the daughter of Na and
MarahaU Levinson, grew up in Tampa and moved to L.A. about
12 years ago to go to. school. She and Stuart met at California
SUte University at Northridge where Cindy was getting her

Floridian Spotlight On
Rabbi David Brusin
The new principal of The Hillel
School of Tampa. Rabbi David
Brusin, comes to Tampa from
Skokie, 111., where he taught at
the Solomon Schechter Day
School and was Director of Edu-
cation at the Niles Township
Jewish Congregation.
Speaking of his enthusiasm for
his new position in Tampa, Rabbi
Brusin cited the ... tremen-
dous potential of this Jewish
community. And the people I've
met." He smiles broadly as he re-
calls the day he spent in the
classrooms of Hillel School of
Tampa prior to his accepting the
position. (He.emphasizes that he
would not have considered taking
this position were he not able to
spend a day in the classroom.)
"What rapport there was be-
tween the students and the
teachers! And between the stu-
dents themselves. The learning
which was going on was mar-
velous. Even surpassing my
present school. It was wonder-
ful." He continued, "Maybe
we're too small, and that we will
have to build. But there are many
advantages to a small school, you
Rabbi Brusin, 38, and his wife
Sandra and sons Joshua, 10, and
Jonathan, one, have purchased a
home in Carrollwood and antici-
pate being active congregants at
Congregation Kol Ami. "I have
served as a congregation rabbi,"
said Rabbi Brusin, "And prefer
working in education for one
reason, so I don't have to work on
the Holidays." His is obviously a
close family who enjoy their holi-
days and Shabbat time together.
The Brusins met in college
when they both were students at
the Chicago Circle Campus of the
University of Illinois. He gradu-
ated in Philosophy and she re-
ceived her degree in Secondary
Education, English. Rabbi
Brusin earned his MA degree at
Temple University and was
ordained in 1974 at the Recon-
structionist Rabbinical College,
Rabbi Brusin and Rabbi Ken-
neth Berger of Congregation
Rodeph Sholom were classmates
in rabbinical school. "I first
learned there was an opening in
Tampa via the listing with the
Placement Bureau of the Recon-
structionist Rabbinical Associa-
tion," said Rabbi Brusin.
Speaking of his immediate
plans at Hillel School of Tampa,
Rabbi Brusin emphasized that he
is working to learn as much as he
can about the students, parents
and teachers. He is enthusiastic
about the potential relationship

agencies to have their staff mem-
bers in such proximity," he said.
His long range objectives in-
clude the integration of the Jew-
ish and general studies curricula.
"There is much that can be inte-
grated for instance, the Lan-

"but," said Rabbi Brusin, "I feel
the school will sell itself." Rabbi
Brusin .was very impressed with
Dr. Arthur Shapiro, of the Uni-
versity -of South-Florida College
of Education, who is chairman of
the Hillel School of Tampa edu
cation committee.
Prior to coming to Tampa to
interview, Rabbi Brusin and his
wife had never been to Florida. "1
expected it to look more like Isra-
el," said Rabbi Brusin. The
Brusins are water oriented and
hope to spend their time on and
around the beaches.
He is also pleased with beiuj
the Eastern Time Zone, "p
we'll be able to watch the ev

to watch it at 6 p.m. Now itig

During the "Skokie sit.

There Was Little to Say
Why were Arens and Shamir summoned?
Take your choice. There are explanations
aplenty all of them beginning with
Prime Minister Begin's telephone call to
President Reagan a week ago Tuesday
announcing that he was cancelling his July
27 appointment at the White House with
the President "for personal reasons."
Our own impulse is to go with the more
popular theory that Begin really had
nothing to say to Mr. Reagan. He knew
there would be pressure about the
redeployment. He is committed to
redeployment, agonizing with deep
emotional pain as he has been over the
deaths and injuries of Israeli soldiers trying
to keep peace in a Lebanon bent on tearing
itself apart. What would there be to gain in
the meeting?
So, when we used the word, "sum-
moned," so far as Shamir and Arens are
concerned, we bet it accurately reflects
exactly what occurred. If not Begin, then
the next two from the peak of Israeli power
that is how the Reagan Administration
must have figured it.
In effect, Shamir and Arens were called
in to take the brunt of the Administration's
anger that Israeli redeployment is the first
step toward a permanent partition of
Lebanon, since President Gemayel, the kid
who doesn't know that he isn't making it,
won't be able to keep the peace long enough
to consolidate the civil war-bent elements
in his country.
Making of HistoryAgain
This is not good news. If Israel redeploys
no matter what, as Minister Patt declared,
then we can look forward to another storm
of Reagan anger and media fire and
brimstone. If Israel succumbs, then
everything is lost so far as Operation Peace
for Galilee was concerned.
What we hope that Shamir and Arens
reminded the President is just this: During
Israel's best hours in Beirut, when its
victory was absolute, the purposes of the
war had been achieved. The PLO was
destroyed, and Syria was thoroughly
But, at American insistence, Israel gave
Syrian troops safe passage along the
Damascus Highway back toward Syria.
What occurred thereafter is history:
Syria reconstituted itself in the Bekaa
Valley. The Russians replenished all of the
Syrian losses in armaments. The Syrians
cuddled the PLO to its bosom, where it has
since increased alarmingly in numbers as a
result of the return of PLO terrorists from
abroad in violation of the ceasefire
agreement, which scattered the remnants
of the Palestinian forces into exile.
In short, just like in most every war
Israel ever fought to bring peace to its
people, it is the United States that
engineered the peace to erase the victory
and its fruit. This time by saving the hide
of the PLO and the Syrians.
As Mr. Reagan put the pressure on his
Israeli guests this week, to what extent did
he know his own culpability in the Syrian-
PLO resurrection?
That is why we say we hope Gideon Patt
knew whereof he spoke.
HERE IS the just-appointed
Kissinger Commission on Central
America. And here is former Sen.
Richard Stone, whom President
Reagan recently named as special
U.S. envoy to roughly the same
area, roughly here meaning that
Stone's mandate takes him to the
big Latin nations to the South, as
Both men are Jews. This
makes me nervous. Whether this
was even considered when the
President tapped them is a mat-
ter for pure speculation. The
likelihood is that no official would
ever publicly affirm or deny it,
and so we may never be
privileged to know this, except in
private moments of candor with
Dr. Kissinger or Ambassador
Stone themselves.
I HAVE MET both personally.
I am not inclined to believe that
Dr. Kissinger is physically or
emotionally able to be privately
candid about anything. I believe
Ambassador Stone can be, but he
has grown a whole heap since his
earlier days in the Senate, and I
am prepared to bet on the fact
that he wouldn't sound too much
different from Dr. Kissinger on
i his question.
So we are left with speculation
of another kind. Why did Presi-
dent Reagan choose these men at
all? The answer lies in the Presi-
dent's changed perspective.
When Mr. Reagan ran for
office in the 1980 campaign, he
attacked U.S. policy in Central
and Latin America as being bog-
ged down in the old Banana Re-
public mentality at a time when
the Moscow-Havana Axis was
becoming increasingly effective
in its covert "liberationist" cam-
paigns there. What is more, he
placed the blame for this diplo-
matic shortsightedness square-
ly at the feet of his most imme-
diate precedessor, Jimmy Carter.
THE RESULT was a Repu-
blican assault on Democratic
policy, with the implication that,
alect Reagan, and he would do
better. Well, the nation did elect
Mr. Reagan, and he really has
done far worse.
As the GOP gears up for the
1984 campaign, what better way
to help the nation forget their
man's 1980 oratorical folly than
to evolve a new bipartisan Cen-

ever decisions are to be arrived

consensus irrespective of political
Enter, therefore, Ambassador
Stone. His primary credential is
that he is a Democrat. After that
comes his reported fluency in
Spanish. As a U.S. Senator, he
was a member of a Senate sub-
committee on Middle Eastern
affairs in what always seemed to
me to be a sop to his strong Jew-
ish background. How this quali-
fies him for his Central and Latin
American mandate now is
another matter.
IT MAY still be speculation,
but Dr. Kissinger's appointment
to the Commission on Central
America is easier to explain. Like
him or not, he was a strong
Secretary of State during the
Nixon-Ford years. His was a
dominant role in the resolution of
the 1973 war between Israel and
Egypt. Before that, he negotiated
long and hard against North
Vietnam's Le Due Tho in Paris to
bring an end to our involvement
If the results were a disaster, it
is that the entire involvement
was a disaster and could end in
no other way than disastrously. I
do not personally like the kind of
power brokerage that Kissinger
represents, but he ought not to be
blamed in this instance for what
was not really his fault.
These considerations apart,
there is Kissinger's strong tie to
Richard Nixon until Nixon s very
bitter end. The tie continues to be
a significant one because some of
Nixon's strengths in foreign
affairs represent among the best
a President has given us in a long
time. In fact, it would be difficult
to know which of these men to
credit for this there are those
who declare that it was most
often Kissinger who led the way
even when it was Nixon who was
doing the talking. The Nixon
"triumph" in China is frequently
used to illustrate this.
THESE considerations apart,
as a Republican, Kissinger rep-
resents the other half of the new
Reagan bipartisan approach to
Central and Latin American af-
fairs, a man of many paradoxes,
who is quoted as once having
dismissed the entire southern
hemisphere because nothing
worthy of mention ever came
from it.
Not that Ambassador Sone
doesn't have paradoxical situa-
tions in his own experience, as
well: the alleged "conflict of
interest" in his seat on the Senate
subcommittee and, more
recently, his discussion with
Sandinistas who, in a gross act of
anti-Semitism, kicked out the
entire Jewish community of
Managua from the country after
expropriating much of its proper-
ty. What must Stone have
thought and felt during these
But it is Kissinger who is now
being called upon to deal with a
set of facts entirely at variance
with the genuine metaphysical
meaning of his perception of the
essential inferiority of Latin
America if only because, if
nothing else, it is trouble, and
trouble aplenty, that is coming
from Latin America. It is
Kissinger who must now be
prepared to deal with that vast
area and even vaster flash-point
of world anguish as suddenly
having profound and obvious
meaning to the United States and
globally, as well. There is nothing
ever inferior about trouble.
STILL, my original ob-
servation stands. Both men in
their most prominently-exposed
roles are Jews, and I am un-
comfortable with that. One
reason for this, I suppose, is that
both of their missions are bound
to fail. Although they are entirely

What had begun as an

reasons. From the covert anti-

In the wake of the rage that

for peace in Central and Latin

campaign, which is hardly likely,
it would be a short step from,
say, David Rockefeller and his

after a strategy meeting with

it would be the object of U.S.
policy and of the Commission to
avert a "Vietnam-type of crisis."
On the other hand, in typical
elliptical, professorial style,
Kissinger qualified his statement
by suggesting that "A great deal
depends on how one views what
Vietnam was." Such a meta-
physical analysis of his own
intentions, so clearly muddled,
appears to leave the door open for
what he said the Commission
would seek to avert: the "Viet-
nam-type of crisis.'*
Indeed, it is almost as if his
analysis was frighteningly
symbolic, of the confusion that
Vietnam represents today in the
frightened American mind. With

in El Salvador, the nation is not

Israel's Peace Plan

Gemayel Warns Newsmen It Can 'Endanger' Peace

declared here that Israel's
decision tr redeploy its
troops in Lebanon is
"unacceptable" and warned
that it could "endanger"
the peace process and the

At the same time, Gemayel,
answering question* at a break-
fast sponsored by the National
Press Club, warned Syria that
unless it stopped its bombard-
ment of Beirut, Damascus could
also be vulnerable.
"I don't know when the
Syrians will atop such signs of
neo-terrorism," Gemayel said of
the shelling that has been going

one thing, that if they will not

of intensive talks with the
All, Or Nothing At All,
Administration Declares
WASHINGTON (JTA) The Reagan Administra-
tion appeared to warn Israel that its decision to redeploy
its troops in Lebanon could "complicate" the already
"very difficult tasks" of the government of President
Amin Gemayel. State Department spokesman John
Hughes stressed that the U.S. was still "consulting" with
Israel in order to learn the details of its decision which
have not yet been made public.
"Israel, of course, makes its own decisions,'' Hughes said. "But our
position on partial withdrawal of all foreign forces has not changed.
Our basic objective is the full withdrawal of all foreign forces from
Lebanon. Any partial withdrawal, therefore, should be within the
framework of that objective and should not complicate the very
difficult tasks facing the government of President Gemayel" the
State Department spokesman said.
THE ADMINISTRATION has reportedly been opposed to any re-
deployment by Israel unless it is part of a timetable for hill withdraw-
al. Israel has held a decision in abeyance pending the visit of Premier
Menachem Begin to Washington. However. Begin telephoned Presi-
dent Reagan to postpone that visit for "personal reasons." Hughes
appeared to see no link between the postponement and the Israeli
Cabinet s redeployment decision.
Meanwhile, Hughes underscored the warning against complicating
Gemayel s problems by making a strong statement about the
heavy shelling of Beirut from the Shouf mountains area, the very area
Israel is believed ready to vacate.
"This brutal and indiscriminate shelling of populated areas is
especially distressing at the very moment the Lebanese President is
engaged in talks here in Washington aimed at the withdrawal of all
external forces leading to national reconciliation and the extension of
the Lebanese central government's authority throughout the coun-
try. Hughes said, "This latest incident poignantly underscores the
necessity for the speedy withdrawal of all foreign forces which remains
the key and paramount objective of our efforts with all the parties."
Redeployment Plan Approved
The Cabinet has unanimously
approved a plan to redeploy Is-
raeli troops in south Lebanon.
The announcement, after a closed
session of the Ministerial Defense
Committee, contained no specif-
ics but empowered Premier
Menachem Begin, Defense
Minister Moshe Arens and For-
eign Minister Yitzhak Shamir to
"determine the details."
lines in Lebanon was approved in
principle by the Cabinet several
weeks ago. But no date was ever
set and it was generally believed
that there would be no move until
Begin's meeting with President
Reagan in Washington, which
had been scheduled for July 27
when the Prime Minister unex-
pectedly cancelled his trip for un-
explained "personal reasons.''
The official communique
stated: "As proposed by the
Prime Minister, the Cabinet has
unanimously approved the plan
for redeployment of the Israel
Defense Force in Lebanon as pre-
pared and submitted by the IDF
General Staff."
THERE WAS NO indication
where the new lines in Lebanon
will be. But Chief of Staff Gen.
Moshe Levy said on a television
interview that the line would
follow the Awali River which
enters the sea just north of Sidon
in south Lebanon.

lighted by his White House
meeting with President Reagan.
In his speech to the Press Club,
Gemayel did not mention the
redeployment issue but noted
that Israel signed an agreement
to withdraw its troops from
Lebanon and had ended the state
of war between the two countries.
His strongest words were
reserved for Syria.
He said that "nothing" in
Lebanon's consultations with
Syria during Beirut's nego-
tiations with Israel "led us to
believe that Syrian opposition
would be so violent ... We are

in the meantime the lives of our
people and the integrity of our
efforts to get Syrian withdrawal

talks with the Reagan Adminis-
tration. An Administration
official, briefing reporters, said
that the "key problem is Syrian
refusal to contemplate with-
drawal" of its troops from Leba-
non and all other problems,
including that of Israeli
redeployment, "are symptoms"
of the Syrian refusal.

Gemayel, responding to a
question, said that a partial with-
drawal by Israel could leave the
"impression" that U.S. efforts
have failed, and it could thus be
"exploited" by those opposed to
U.S. policy in the Mideast. But
above all, he expressed the fear
that partial withdrawal could
lead public opinion in Lebanon to
believe that the country would be
partitioned. At the same time, he
stressed "partition will not
happen because the Lebanese
people will not accept it"
official said that the Israelis have
"reiterated publicly and privately
their opposition to the partition
of Lebanon. We hope the Syrians
feel the same way." But the of-
ficial noted that in announcing its
decision, Israel "certainly en-
sured that the subject was
discussed" with Gemayel in
Washington. The official stressed
that the "urgent" aim of the
talks with Gemayel was to keep
the "sense of momentum"
toward national reconciliation
alive in Lebanon.
Gemayel also stressed that
Lebanon is a pluralistic society
with a "delicate balance" be-
tween the various groups in
country. "If we are left to
selves, we shall work out
internal problems throu",
consultations and dialogue.'
He noted that where the]

On the Palestinians, Gemayel
said he supported "the legitimate

"We cannot, of course, let Leba-

"We shall not allow Lebanon to

more. No Palestinian armed

to operate in Lebanon."

Cabinet ministers.
Romberg refused to comment
on the U.S. position on the pro-
posed redeployment of Israeli
troops. But the Administration,
despite reports hero to the
contrary, applied heavy pressure
on Israel to postpone the rede-
ployment to give Gemayel a
chance to consolidate his country
and to allow McParlane to try his
hand at getting Syria to with-
draw its troops from Lebanon.
Gemayel made his opposition
to the redeployment known last
week, but it seemed to be based
chiefly on his fear that it would
give the Lebanese people the im-
pression that it would allow the
country to be partitioned.
ON THIS POINT, the Admin-
istration took aim at the decision

Hadassah Receives Bequest
The Tampa Chapter of Hadas-
sah announces it has received a
bequest in the amount of
$105,818.89 from the estate of
RacheUe Wilderman.
In accordance with her will, the
money is being used at the
Hadassah-Hebrew University
Medical Center located in Ein
Karem, Israel. In recognition of
this very generous legacy, and as
requested in Miss Wilderman's
will, a plaque is being affixed on
the Endowments and Grants
Wall at the Medical Center in
memory of Abraham and Ida
Wilderman, and Adam and
Regina Katz. Miss Wilderman's
name is being incised on the
marble Founders Wall at the
Medical Cantor.
In addition and in accordance
with Hadaaaah's usual practice.
her name is being inscribed on
the Bequest Memorial located in
the reception area of the Medical
Center and in the Book of Be-
quests at National Hadassah
Headquarters in New York.
The Wilderman family settled
in Tampa about 1900 and had a
boy's wear store in Ybor City,
and later moved it to downtown
Tampa. RacheUe, the last survi-
vor of her family, never married
and neither did her late brothers.
A perpetual yahrseit has been
established for RacheUe and her
brother Harry in the synagogue
at the Hadassah-Hebrew Univer-
sity Medical Center.
Miss Wilderman's bequest was
her way of expressing her love for
Israel and her people.

onite Christian, and former Prime
Minister Rasid Karami, a Mos-

National Salvation Front in op-

"We hope that parties in Leba-
nese recognize the importance of
national reconciliation behind a
strong central government in the
pursuit of common national
goals," Romberg said when
asked about the new group.
"We also emphasize again our
hope that senseless violence in
Lebanon will end in the interests
of furthering the worthy goal of a
united, independent and sover-
eign Lebanon, free of all foreign
forces. Continued strife and
bloodshed serves no ones inter-
est*." Jumblatt has admitted
that it was his forces which
shelled Beirut International Air-
port hut week.
GEM AYEL'S strongest words
last week were reserved for Syria
as he accused Damascus of
reneging on its promise to with-
draw its troops once Israel had
agreed to pull out its forces. It is
apparent that Gemayel and
Reagan agreed to the next step in
Lebanon to concentrate on
seeking the removal of the PLO
terrorists and Syrian forces. The
appointment of McFarlane was
admittedly an attempt to put a
"new face" on the diplomatic ef-
fort rather than coming up with
any new plan.
The new face was necessary
because Syrian President Hafez
Assad refused to allow Habib to
come to Damascus after the Is-
raeli-Lebanese agreement was
signed May 17. A State Depart-
ment official noted that Habib
was seen as a "symbol" by Syria
to its opposition to American
support of the Israeli-Lebanese
HE NOTED that when Shultz
went to Damascus in June he
wanted to take Habib along, but
Habib convinced him that it
would be better if he did not ac-
company him. However, all
Shultz obtained from Damascus
was continued rejection of the
agreement accompanied by the
willingness to continue the "dia-
logue" and the agreement for
Syrian-U.S. working teams which
have not yet met.
The Administration's hope that
Syria will eventually agree to
withdraw its troops is based on
what they see as Syria's willing-
ness to continue the dialogue. Al-
though McFarlane himself ad-
mitted that he has not yet re-
ceived assurances that he will be
welcome to Damascus, Adminis-
tration officials stressed that Mc-
Farlane expects to go to Syria
when he goes to the Mideast,
probably next week. When Rom-

Detroit Arabs Picket Gemayel's Talk
Sad Tale Told With Melancholy Humor
The Rabbi's Life Contract. By
Marilyn Greenberg. New York:
Doubleday and Company,
1983. 231 Pp. $14.96
Jewish Floridian Book Editor
This book may be seen as a sad
tale told with humor or a funny
story filled with melancholy.
Whichever way you see it, Mari-
lyn Greenberg, a rabbi's wife, has
woven wit and woe together to
produce a readable and entertain-
ing novel. As a rebbitzin, she has
special sensitivity for all of the
characters in her story, but par-
ticularly for the rabbi and his
The story opens as the rab-
binical couple returns home after
a year's sabbatical in Israel,
granted to them by their con-
gregation on completion of the
rabbi's twentieth year since he
founded the synagogue in "New
Saxony, Illinois."
BEFORE HE has even had an
opportunity to unpack, let alone
to rest after the long journey, the
rabbi is peremptorily summoned
to the home of a board member
and told that he is being fired.
The three board members who
are present insist that the
congregation is behind them in
their decision and that they in-
tend to carry it out even though
the rabbi has a life contract.
The prime mover in this action
is Dr. Milton Winegarten, an
English instructor at the local
community college who is himself
an ordained rabbi. He is also an
eccentric bigot and, though mar-
ried, has homosexual tendencies.
What follows is the story,
sometimes sad and sometimes
comical, of how the rabbi fights
this decision to let him go. Many
congregants rally round the
rabbi, especially two lawyers who
coach him and handle his "case."
The rabbi's family, his wife and
six grown children, as well as a
local minister, also support him.
The congregation is split, as is so
typical, between the friends of
the rabbi and the enemies of the
Still fulfilling his rabbinical re-
sponsibilities, the rabbi officiates
at a Bar Mitzvah, and we are
treated to a hilarious description
of the party which follows the
synagogue ceremony. On a sad-
der note, there is depicted the
rabbi's ministrations to a dying
congregant and his family, as
well as his conducting the funeral
taking hardens as the story
moves to the congregational
meeting where the rabbi's fate is
to be determined. The meeting
quickly descends into a farce with
speakers shouting their views
and serving as prototypes of typ-
ical shut balabatim. Many of the
rabbi's supporters leave in dis-

The supporters begin to orga-
nize a new congregation and hold
a service at the church of the
minister who has befriended the
rabbi Meanwhile, Winegarten
has trouble at the college, and his
cohorts begin to disagree among
themselves. Their situation de-
teriorates as Winegarten loses his
job and evidence appears regard-
ing his personal problems; his
marriage goes downhill. In
despair, he kills himself. The
rabbi presides at the funeral with
great grace, compassion and for-
The story ends with the de-
cision to ask the rabbi back.
Winegarten s widow expresses
the general sentiment: "just tell
him we need him and we want
him. Just tell him we love him."
ALTHOUGH the writing can
hardly be described as mem-
orable, it is quite serviceable. The
author uses one effective literary
device. She intersperses the
narrative with letters, some of
which are satires of the pro and
con feelings in the congregation.
Others deal with the usual re-
quests made to a rabbi which
seem incongruous and laughable
coming at this time of stress. One
of the saddest letters of all, offer-
ed with special irony, comes from
the rabbinical placement office,
announcing openings in
Australia, New Zealand and a
"part-time position in Curacao."
Obviously, the story has .a
moral: support your rabbi, and
don't be so quick to join the in-
evitable segment of any congre-
gation with grievances against
the rabbi real or imaginary.
And what the story finally shows
is that there is too much truth in
that old joke: being a rabbi is no
job for a Jewish boy.

The Bloodmobile of the South-
west Florida Blood Bank will be
at the Jewish Community Center
on Thursday, August 4 from 9
a.m. to 7 p.m. "The need is so
great and donations are down,"

JCC's Pre-School and a member
of the Tampa Jewish Social Serv-
ice board.
"The hours are set to enable
parents to donate when they
bring their children to Camp, or
when they pick them up. People
will be able to donate during their
lunch hour or on the way home
from work. Even those coming to

be able to donate blood and so
will those who attend the Family
Dinners on Thursday night,"
said Altshuler.
Anyone who needs to make a
set appointment time may do so
by calling Michelle Winnick at
the JCC, 872-4461.
All donations will be credited

short of the peace treaty Israel
had expected.
MOST SERIOUS, from the
standpoint of Israelis, the IDF,
more than a year after the war
began, remains in occupation of
large areas of Lebanon, forced to
perform arduous, dangerous and
unwanted policing duties to
maintain its own security and to
try to keep peace between in-
cessantly warring Christian,
Moslem and Druze factions
obviously beyond the control of
the Beirut government. As a
result, the IDF is suffering
The death toll since the in-
vasion of Lebanon began 13
months ago stands at over 500
and more than 2,000 Israeli
soldiers have been wounded.
According to Begin's intimates,
each IDF death causes him
visible physical pain. He is deep-
ly perturbed by his personal
responsibility and by his personal
need to bring the Lebanese
episode to a speedy and secure
All of this helps explain his
doleful mood, his seeming lethar-
gy and self-imposed near-
seclusion. The changes in Begins
personal style have been evident
lo the public for some time and
widely reported by the media.
Although Begin has had periods
of depression before, he always
bounced back to confound politi-
cal opponents all too ready to
write him off.
BUT HIS present slough of
despondency is the deepest and
longest. He has limited his public
appearances to the bare mini-
mum in recent months. When he
does deliver a brief speech or an
address to the Knesset, the old
lire and fight are missing. He has
flatly refused, interviews even to
the most eminent foreign
journalists. He was never
generous with interviews to the
Israeli press which he considers
endemically hostile to him and
his policies.
The Premier's failure to go on
television to explain his decision
to cancel his Washington trip has
worried his supporters and
perplexed the Israeli public. The
opposition Labor Party is still
wary of raising the issue of
Begin s health it has backfired
on them before given the
Premier's still enormous popular-
ity with wide sections of the
But Labor leaders believe there
is no alternative this time. Labor
Party Chairman Shimon Peres
brushing aside the official ex-
planations of Begin s decision not

that it "raised serious questions
sbout his (ability to) function."
BEGIN MAY still pull out of
his despondent mood. He and his
senior ministers hope that the
partial pullback of Israeli forces
in Lebanon will reduce casualties
and costs and will ease the
burden of prolonged service on
army reservists. If this is
achieved, it would certainly
improve the governments
standing at home and might give
Begin the needed lift to recapture
his lost energy and joy in political
But much can go wrong. There
is no guarantee that the rede-
ployment will substantially
reduce IDF casualties. Most of
the recent casualties in Lebanon
have been the result of terrorist
ambushes and hit-and-run at-
tacks within the designated
security zone of south Lebanon to

There is no way of predicting
whether or not the fighting will

I who was forced into exile.
According to Rosenthal,
| Reagan told the briefing organ
lized by the White House Out-
reach Group on Central America
that the repressions against the

the consequence of a "self-
proclaimed blood unity between

McFarlane Replaces
Hablb in Mideast
Keagan has named Robert
McFarlane, a deputy assistant
for national security affairs, to
replace Philip Habib as his
personal representative in the
Middle East. McFarlane, who, as
Habib did, will carry the personal
rank of ambassador, is expected
to leave for the Middle East
within a week.
The surprise announcement
was made by Reagan last Friday ,
as he concluded a 90-minute
White House meeting with
Lebanese President Amin
Gemayel. Reagan said that
Habib "must return to his
business and academic duties."
But Administration officials
later conceded that one of the
reasons is to bring in a "new
face" in the United States diplo-
matic process in the hope that
this will aid the U.S. effort to
convince Syria to remove its
forces from Lebanon. Habib has
not been welcome in Damascus
and it is hoped that the Syrians
will now receive his replacement.
Canadians In Big
Gift to Qurion Univ.
MONTREAL The Canadian
government has donated $60,000
to the Canadian Associates of the
Ben Burion University of the
Negev toward its sponsorship of
the first "Right to Food" confer-
ence to be held in Montreal May
25-27. 1984.
The check was presented by
Agriculture Minister Eugene
Wheian who declared in the
House of Commons, "The Cana-
dian Associates of the Ben
Gurion University are to be
congratulated for taking this
initiative." He noted that the
conference "is intended to inform
the public that hunger can be

Soviets Export
Propaganda Film
NEW YORK The National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
(NCSJ) reported that a new film
made by the Soviet government
for export abroad, particularly to
the United States, links Zionism
with Nazism and racism.
According to the NCSJ, the
film, "Babi Yar: the Lessons of
1 lisjory,'. is disturbing because it
represents an attempt to expand
the ongoing Soviet propaganda
campaign personified bv the
three-and-a-half month old "Anti-
Zionist Committee."
Narrated in near flawless
English and of high technical
quality, it was apparently sent
out to a wide variety of media
outlets, including CBS News, the
Simon Wiesenthal Center and
private individuals involved in

Friday, juiy a,
Zielonka Heads Schaarai Zedek
Many leaders of congregations
are said to have been "born into
the congregation." For no one
could this be more true than in
the case of Carl L. Zielonka,
DDS, the new president of Con-
gregation Schaarai Zedek.
Carl is a native Tampan, the
son of Carol Zielonka and the late
Rabbi David L. Zielonka, Rabbi
of this same congregation for
over 40 years. Carl, today quickly
points out, "This is a totally dif-
ferent congregation today from
the one I grew up in. Just look at
the difference in size!"
And "grow up in" is exactly
what Carl did. He was president
of the Temple Youth Group (a
fact he shares with past Schaarai
Zedek president Maril Jacobs)
and he was president of the I
Temple Brotherhood (a fact he
shares with past president Simon
Dingfelder). Only one other pres-
ident has been a dentist, Carl's
"Uncle Dan," the late Dr. Daniel
Carl was an Eagle Scout in
Troop 44 which met at the Jewish
Community Center with Scout-
master, Sonny Rosenblatt.
(Another fact he shares with
Eagle Scout, Simon Dinfelder.)
The Zielonka boys (Carl's
brother is Rabbi David M.
Dr. Carl L. Zielonka, President
Congregation Schaarai Zedek
Zielonka of Gastonia, N.C.) at-
tended the Gorrie-Wilson-Plant
schools of Tampa. Carl then went
to Duke University, receiving his
BA in Sociology in 1963 before
attending Emory University
from which he graduated in 1967
with DDS. He then served two
years as a Captain in the Air
Force at Vandenberg AFB, Calif,
before returning to Tampa.
Hillel School to
Get New Home
Continued from Page 1
Gifts Campaign. "It is the very
least amount we can raise and
still provide quality facilities at
the Jewish Community Center
and finance the relocation of the
Hillel School to the Center's
Levinson stressed the "top
priority of this campaign if the
Jewish Community Center is
going to continue to serve as the
heart of Jewish community life in
Tampa. That is why we have
selected the theme, "From Gene-
ration to Generation.' It des-
cribes perfectly what the Center
means to us as the linkage be-
tween the different generations of
Jewish people in Tampa, from the
preschool age children to the
senior citizens who flock to its
As for the specific targets of
the money, Levinson pointed out
that the Center "has had no
major repairs since its was first
built 20 years ago. It is in dire
need of a new roof, a new gym-
nasium floor, resurfacing of the
tennis courts and swimming pool,
painting and general repairs.''
"Hillel School," Levinson
explained, "can no longer serve
its growing number of students.
By moving Hillel from its current
location at Congregation Rodeph
Sholom to the Jewish Com-
munity Center, we will
strengthen the hub of our Jewish
community and allow the stu-
dents full use of the Canter's
"We on the Board of Hillel
School owe a special debt of
gratitude to Building Committee
Chairman Sandy Solomon and
his members." said Richard
Gordimer, president of Hillel
School of Tampa. "His com-
mittee tackled the arduous task
of supervising how to bast inte-

structure that has bean designed
is that it is flexible. The portable
modules are built to look like one
structure but they are movable.
At some point, if the community
decides, the school can be moved,
which gives it the flexibility for
growth which is essential."
"We at the Jewish Community
Center are looking forward to the
enrichment of the Center with the
addition of Hillel School," said
Leah Davidson, president of the
Jewish Community Center.
"With the completion of these
vitally needed capital improve-
ments, we will have the first-class

While in Atlanta he met Paula
Shapiro from Shreveport, La. She
was teaching school, having
graduated from Sophie New-
combe College. They married
prior to his Air Force Days.
Today the Zielonka family has
grown to include 15 year old Ste-
phen, who will be
grade at Tampa Preparatory
School this fall and 12 year old
Caryn who will be in the seventh
grade at Berkeley Preparatory
School. Between Caryn's gym-
nastics (she practices six days a
week in Largo) and Steven's bas-
ketball games, the Zielonka's
stay busy with sports activities.
"I feel very good about con-
tinuing the family tradition,"
Carl pointed out. He refers not
only to the mother's and fathers
involvement with Schaarai
Zedek, but also to his grandfath-
er Zielonka who was a rabbi in El
Paso, Tex. "And I feel very good
about having an impact of my
own on the congregation."
Zielonka said he intends to
concentrate on adapting the con-
gregation to the idea of an assis-
tant rabbi. He would also like to
see more congregants involved
within community activities and
not just within congregational
things. "I would also like to de-
velop more intercongregational
activities, maybe revitalizing the
Synagogue Council," he stated.
The over all Jewish community
has been the recipient of the ef-
forts of Carl and Paula Zielonka.
Paula is a past president of
Tampa Jewish Social Service and
now serves on the board of the
Jewish Family and Children
Agencies. She is on the board of
the Tampa Jewish Federation
Women's Division and the Young
Women's Leadership Cabinet of
Carl was chairman of Leader-
ship Development of the Tampa
Jewish Federation, on the Na-
tional Young Leadership Cabinet
of UJA and was Florida Regional
Young Leadership Chairman. He

for two terms.

trips to Israel but the one they
