According to Dr. Stanley

Federation Leaders Urge
CJA Pledge Fulfillment
I '
With 1976 about to end, the
rgent need for fulfillment of
ledges to the 1976 Combined
wish Appeal is self-evident,"
ated Lewis E. Cohn, president
South Broward Federation, at
December Board meeting of
... Jeration.
'Cash collections have been
lining at a high level in the
uth Broward area, neverthe-
ss, many individuals do wait
iiil the years end to fulfill
edges and it is, therefore, in-
mbent upon us to remind our
mmunity of the vital need for
sh to fulfill our obligations
ally, nationally, and in Israel,"
ntinued Cohn.
Reminder letters, along with
atements have been mailed by
the Federation to all with out-
standing balances. The letter
notes that, "The needs of Israel
have never been greater, and
fulfillment of dollar commitments
will insure the Jewish Agency the
financial support to meet vital
human needs. We, as American
Jews, have a responsibility to
ourselves and to the people of
Israel. To give but one example
of Israel's current economic
situation, the budget for edu-
cation has been reduced to the
point where it is doubtful that
Israeli children will be able to
receive a free education beyond
the ninth grade.
For the people of Israel today
there must be alternatives, for
their critical economic situations
strike at the heart of the delicate
social fabric that holds Israel's
society together. We must show
our support and let them know
that we care through our pledge
payments now."
Dr. Robert Pittell, Cash
Collections chairman for Fed-
eration, indicated that, "Though
South Broward has turned over
to the UJA more than a quarter
of a million dollars in December
we must provide a minimum of
$500,000 additional before the
end of the year to help support
the Jewish Agency's human-
itarian services for 600,000 people
in Israel. Cash is also needed to
fulfill commitments to domestic
and local agencies which must be
maintained for the aged, for
youth, for health and for edu-
cational services."
Payments may be made at the
Federation Office or by mail.
Commission Established To
View How Boycott Restricts
MONTREAL (JTA) A National Commission on
Economic Coercion and Discrimination was established Oct. 4
to investigate the application of the Arab boycott in Canada.
Prof. Irwin Cotler, of the law faculty at McGill University,
who is chairman, said the commission's purpose was to inquire
into the nature and effect of the Arab boycott in Canada with
the view to determine the manner in which the boycott
restricts freedom of trade between Canada and any other
country or between Canadian citizens in Canada.
HE SAID it would assess the extent to which the boycott
creates a discriminatory impact on Canadian citizens and
would also inquire into remedial steps, legislative and ad-
ministrative, to combat economic coercion and discrimination.
Cotler established the commission in connection with the
Association for Law and Public Policy, a nonprofit law group
he directs.

Sharon, who severed his ties with Likud last month and
munced that his new faction would seek Knesset seats in
it year's election, told foreign newsmen here that Israel
Duld negotiate with any Arab factions, including the
estine Liberation Organization.
A UNITED Arab delegation at Geneva would include PLO
resentatives but would allow Israel to maintain its policy of
jsing to negotiate with the PLO as such.
Sharon said he believed a settlement could be worked out

followed by a contractual peace agreement.
JERUSALEM -Owing to the
surprise resignation of Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin, last
week. President Ephraim Katzir
began to form a new government.
The first of a round of talks on
government formation, which are
required by Israeli law following
a Prime Minister's resignation,
began when Katzir met with a
delegation from the ruling Labor
Party on Sunday.
However, if the Knesset
dissolves itself and puts Rabin in
charge of a care-taker govern-
ment until new elections, the law
is bypassed and sources expect
just that to happen within the
next two weeks.
This emergency procedure was
precipitated when Rabin
abruptly dismissed the National
Religious Party from his Cabinet,
resigned, and thus opened the
way for early elections.
The Cabinet, without the NRP,
can command only a minority, 57
of 120 Knesset seats.
Rabin's move was approved by
a majority of the Cabinet but it
came as a surprise even to his
Labor Alignment colleagues. At
the opening of the weekly session
and without prior debate, he
informed Religious Affairs Min-
ister Yitzhak Rafael and Welfare
Minister Zevulun Hammer that
they could no longer serve in his
BOTH HAD abstained when
the Orthodox Aguda bloc pre-
sented a motion of no-confidence
in the government on Dec. 14 for
alleged Sabbath desecration. The
motion was defeated by a vote of
55-48 with nine abstentions. But
according to Israeli law, a
member of the government who
fails to oppose a no-confidence
motion is subject to dismissal by
the Prime Minister.
Rabin did not ask for the
resignation of the third NRP
member of his Cabinet, Interior
Minister Yosef Burg, who had
voted against the Aguda motion.
Burg said, however, that the
ouster of his colleagues gave him

heard reports of recent develop-
ments in major areas of JDC
operation from JDC executives
and overseas staff members.
They also heard reports of a
year-long JDC Study which
probed every aspect of the JDC,
and elected officers for the
coming year.
Jack D. Weiler, a New York
realtor and builder, was elected to
his third one-year term as presi-
dent; Donald M. Robinson, of
Pittsburgh, a private investor
and director of Revco Drug
Stores, Inc., was elected vice
president and president-elect. He
will assume the presidency of the
agency on Jan. 1,1978.
Weiler called attention to the
year-long study of the JDC by a
team of professional consultants,
which was distributed to the
Jewish leaders, entitled Com-
passion in Action, A Continuing
"The booklet summarizes the
first formal, in-depth study of the
Joint Distribution Commit toe in
its history," Weiler said.
"We have had other
evaluations and reports over the
years but we have never had this
kind of exhaustive, year-long,
area-by-area evaluation of our
work carried out by top con
sultanta and top lay and pro-
fessional leaders.' he said.
Ralph I. Goldman, JDC
executive vice president, reported
that in 1976 the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee aided over
425,000 Jews in over 26 countries
around the world. This included
health, welfare, educational and
religious and cultural programs
and involved costs of over $35.2
million, an increase of over 63.7
million over 1975.
About 31 percent of the
budget, almost 811 million, was
spent in Israel including JDC's
traditional program of aid to the
yeshivot and other religious and
cultural programs.
Of the expenditures, about
two-thirds for Western Europe
went for care and maintenance of
transmigrants, Jews who came
out of the Soviet Union and other
East European countries and
were en route to countries other
than Israel.
Goldman said he saw JDC's
role in Israel in the coming years
as helping to develop "com-
munity-based health and welfare
services of the highest quality."
These will be directed toward
care of the aged and the
physically and mentally ill,
services for the handicapped,
community center programs and
manpower training.
In Israel the JDC integrated
its last five directly operated
institutions, four old age homes
and a geriatric hospital, with
Israel's national network of
facilities for the aged by turning
them over to local authorities
The JDC will continue to provide
operating funds for the five
facilities for the next few year,
Goldman said.

Knesset dissolved itself. Likud
leader Menachem Beigin said
lections could be held in April
or. at the latest. May. He
recently introduced a motion
i-alling for elections May 3.
It was clear that Rabin did not
lire the NRP ministers in a
moment of anger over their
breach of coalition discipline. He
apparently concluded that the
religious faction was no longer a
reliable partner and would in-
creasingly oppose government
policies aa election day neared.
He is known to have sought the
"dvice of Justice Minister Chaim

strongest measures had to be
taken against the NRP lest its
defiance make a farce of the
coalition government.

The Planes Arrived
How does an Eagle F-15 jet fighter possibly translate
into a desecration of the Sabbath?
Easy. All you need is an F-15 to land in Israel 47
minutes before the Sabbath and before some 3.000
guests invited to view the arrival, no less.
Anxious for such an advanced and sophisticated piece
of military hardware or not. not even 25 of them, landing
just 47 minutes before the Sabbath, could save Israel from
charges that the Sabbath had been desecrated.
What it takes is a government coalition in flux the
Rabin coalition for example. Add to this the opposition's
attempt to unseal the government, plus an abstention by
the National ReUgious Party on a no-confidence vote, and
you have all the ingredients.
The rest is history, and now it has brought the Cabinet
down! In fact, the wording of the motion, itself, became a
source of debate: allegedly, it used God's name in vain.
Never mind that it is unheard of that a coalition bloc
member abstains from voting in the cause of maintaining
itself in power this is precisely what the National
Religious Party did.
Or that the no-confidence motion which caused the furor
with allegations of religious violation itself became guilty
of a religious violation.
Only in Israel can a political stranglehold be disguised
as a religious issue.
What is important is that the planes arrived.

Voters sensitive to the
potential for mischief inherent in
any effort to mix politics with
religion had good reason to be
disturbed by attempts to form a
third political party of "real
Christians only" during the 1976
presidential campaign.
This grandiose scheme, pro-
moted by Bill Bright, leader of
the Campus Crusade for Christ
International, and Congressman
John Coblan of Arizona, was
upsetting to those who have
studied continuing efforts to nail
down an amendment to the Con-
stitution declaring the United
Slates a Christian nation.

EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian:
The United Nations has
recognized the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization (PLO) as
the representative of the Pales-
tinian people and has invited a
spokesman to address the
General Assembly. We believe
the PLO to be a blood-stained
terrorist group whose leaders
should not be granted the privi-
lege of addressing the United
Nations. We deeply sympathize
with the plight of the Palestinian
refugees but we know very well
that the PLO does not represent
the Palestinians. The PLO was
created in 1964 by the Arab
League and, to this day. is
financed by the Arab League.
In 1973, the Arab nations
meeting in Algiers decided that
the PLO should be the "sole legi-
timate representative of the
Palestinian people,"
Of course, nobody bothered to
consult the Palestinian people,
indeed, the Arab nations who
claim to be so concerned about
the plight of the Palestinians
have never given a single cent of
their vast oil revenues to alleviate
the misery of the Palestinian

tinued existence of the State of

That is why anyone who is at
all concerned with the question of
human rights and with main-

The decision represents a grave
setback to the ideals of Inter-
national Brotherhood, peace, and
human rights which the United
Nations is supposed to represent.
It baa seriously compromised the
moral stature of the United

I don't know why you're
sending us the Floridian. Our
income is about $5,700 a year,
and the inflated value of our

and my mother didn't finish high

copalians and Catholics we know
retired on far higher pensions
than my father did, who never
had more than about $7,000 a

centages, 34 percent of Jews is
about two million people, but 16
percent of the Catholics amounts
to about seven million, and 14
percent of Protestants amounts
to about 21 million people, so as
far as numbers go Mr. Gannon is
right and after reading Edward
Cohen's column of Oct. 17 I'm
beginning to agree with Gen.
I've always been an unttr-

Question: Why do we eet
latkes on the Festival of
Charles Gendler
Answer: Chanukah, a Hebrew
word meaning dedication, is an
eight day celebration from the
twenty-fifth day of the month of
Kislev to the second day of the
month of Tevet.
This festival commemorates
the victory of Judah the Has-
monean called Maccabee, over
Antiochus Epiphanes, and the
subsequent rededication of the
Temple and Altar desecrated by
The rededication took place on
the twenty-fifth day of the month
of Kislev in the year 165 BCE.
corresponding to the year 3596 of
the Hebrew Calendar, the third
anniversary of its desecration.
Following the destruction of
the Second Temple by the
Romans in 70 CE. the festival
was linked with the miracle of the
single cruse of oil with the seal of
the High Priest, and enough oil
for the Eternal Light of the
Candelabrum of the Temple for
only a single day and which
burned for eight days.
The Rabbis of the Talmud
instituted the duty of kindling
the Chanukah lights for eight
days and decreed that there shall
be neither mourning nor fasting
during this joyous occasion.
(Tractate Shabbat 21b.)
According to the authoritative
Encyclopaedia Judaic a. food in
Ereu Israel during the Biblical
period depended mostly on the
food supply of the closed agri-
cultural economy. In their dis-
persion throughout the world.
Jews have adopted many dishes
of the countries in which they
found themselves, conforming
them to dietary laws. Economic
factors have have also played
their part in the development of
special dishes.
Among all peoples and cultures
there are dishes prepared with a
special flavor peculiar to a par-
ticular holiday.
The Jews have also developed
delicacies, often the ordinary food
of the country of their birth,
adapted to some special holiday
There are several explanations
for the custom of eating latkes on
"For Chanukah. Jews of all
communities eat pastry and
potato preparations fried in oil as
a reminder of the miracle of the
cruse of oil at the rededication of
the Temple. Ashkenazim called
them latkes ..." (Encyclopaedia
Judaica. vol. 6. p.1426).
"The special dish that
characterizes the Feast of
Chanukah is the latke, or pan-
cake. According to a legend this
food is served because Judah, in
his hasty pursuit of the Syrians
served pancakes to his famished
forces." {Gateway to Judaism, by
Albert M Shuiman. vol. 1, p.391)
"If lathes you would make.
Salt and eggs and flour kt;
Eat with jest and song
and rhyme,
At the festive Hanuhkah time."
IH anukkah the Feast of
Lights oy
Emily Sobs-Cohen, p.! 16)
One of the most impoitant
.spects of Chanukah is the cele-
bration of the victory of the spirit
over things material and not
merely the military victory.
"As part of the eternal world-
wide struggle for democracy, the
struggle of the Maccabees is of
eternal worldwide interest. It is a
struggle of the Jews of today as
well as of those of two thousand
years ago. It is a struggle in
which all Americans, non-Jews as
well ^l^tows. should be vitally
interested because they are
vitally affected.
"The Maccabees' victory
proved that the Jews then
already an old people pos-
sessed the secret of eternal
youth: the ability to rejuvenate
itself through courage, hope,
enthusiasm, devotion and self-
sacrifice of the plain people. This
will bring again a Jewish Re-
naissance." (From a speech de-
livered in Boston inl912 by the
late Louis D. Brandeis, 1866-
1941. former United States
Supreme Court Justice and
Zionist leader).
One of the most interesting
punliract ions to come out of
Israel is a three-volume pub-
bcation called Chronicle-News of
the Past, presenting Jewish
history in the modem style. The
three volumes contain 73 four-
page tabloid newspapers, written
as though they were published in
Jerusalem at the particular time
of the events as they happened.
Although published in the
modern journalistic medium,
these newspapers are based on
authentic Biblical acounts, the
mid rash, and other historical
sources including the latest
findings of archaeological ex-
plorations and research. The
issues also contain the pepper
and salt ingredients of every

the period from Abraham to

Pension Experts Urge
Israel Bonds Purchase
Nationally recognized tax
shelter and pension experts,
including Gary R. Gerson,
Greater Miami Israel Bonds
general campaign chairman;
Melvin L. Maisel of Pensions for
Business (New York); Albert
Livingston, of TSP Associates
(Los Angeles), and Eli Warach,
Esq. of Prentice Hall, have been
extolling the virtues of 5.5 per-
cent Israel Bonds for owners of
pension (Keogh) plans through-
out the country, according to
Milton M. Parson, executive
director of the South Florida
Israel Bond Organization.
Although many banks have
been advertising the tax shelter
features of retirement plans, it is
not generally known that a
growing number of banks and
other institutions permit the
purchase of Israel Bonds in pen-
sion portfolios, Parson said.
He added, "There are
numerous advantages in in-
vesting pension funds in 5.5 per-
cent Bonds, the foremost being
that Bonds are redeemable for
full principal and accrued interest
on 90 days' notice. This has made
the performance of these Bonds
better than many fluctuating
market investments of pension
funds in recent years.
"All agree that 5.5 percent

New Year's Eve Parties
'Conflict with Sabbath'
The Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami has issued a
statement concerning New Year's Eve observance this year.
The statement was issued by the Association's president,
Rabbi Avrom L. Drazin of Temple Israel of Miramar who said,
"The statement was issued in the interest of maintaining the
dignity of the Jewish community."
According to the Association's executive vice president,
Rabbi Solomon Schiff. director of Chaplaincy, of the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation, "Copies of the statement have been
sent to the various Jewish organizations requesting their
cooperation in the matter."
The statement follows:
The Rabbinicial Association of Greater Miami, the most
comprehensive rabbinic group in the community encompassing
Conservative, Reform, and Orthodox Rabbis, calls upon the
Jews and Jewish organizations of this area to respect the
sanctity of the Sabbath by refraining from sponsoring or at-
tending activities that conflict in any way with the observance
of the Sabbath and attendance at religious services.
Inasmuch as New Year's Eve occurs this year on Friday
evening, the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami
specifically urges the entire Jewish community to abstain from
planning or participating in parties and celebrations on that
evening. It further urges all Jews to attend the religious services
scheduled in their respective congregations as a manifestation of
their personal dignity and self-respect, as well as the spirit of
rededication to the principles of our religious faith and to our
spiritual regeneration. ____

Mission Participants Relate Experiences
Motivated by experiences on
South H reward's Community
Mission which recently returned,
several participants react:
Felice and Morton Zimmerman
"While the bus snaked around
the sides of the mountain on the
beautiful new roads, our friends
were exclaiming. fantastic,
unbelievable. magnificent,
miraculous.' These were some of
the adjectives used to express the
wonder of what we were seeing.
"The Israelis came here from
all walks of life. They came with
plans to make a homeland for
their people. They came and
bought land (through the Jewish
National Fund) from the Turks
and Arabs, who saw a chance to
sell, at inflated prices, what they
considered sandy wasteland. And
this is what we on the bus were
all excited about.
"We saw cities rising out of
sand We saw farms, towns,
ports. industry, universities,
museums, theaters, hospitals,
green valleys, and crops growing
on sandy soil. To bring all this
about took blood, sweat and
tears. But the people had a
dream, and with it the desire, the
will, the stamina, the fortitude,
the intelligence, the per-
severance, and the guts. And,
truly, we were very impressed.
"I am optimistic that in the
not too distant future, these
words of Ben Gurion and Theo-
dore Herzl will come true:
Ben Gurion "1 believe in
our own moral and intellec-
tual superiority, in our ca-
pacity to serve as a model for
the redemption of the human
race. The glory of the Divine
Presence is within us. in our
hearts and not outside us."
Theodore Herzl "The
world will be freed by our
liberty, enriched by our
wealth, and magnified by
our greatness."
"Amen," the Zimmermans
Gloria and Alvin Haa "Al-
though our joys reached new
highs, conversely our sadness
reached new lows during our
mission trip to Israel.
"And between our poles-apart
emotions, we found a matrix of
people; alert, beautiful and warm
in their welcome.
"Symbolic to us of Israel was
our visit to the recreated City of
Ashod It seemed to typify to us
Israeli courage and genius.
"That is, in order to satisfy a
need for survival, to rely on its
people of disparate cultures, eco-
nomic backgrounds, education
and cms tons of worship: to solve,
so to sposjk. an insoluble problem
by living and working together.
"BefoA we left Hillcrcbl
friend sailr 'My biggest regret is
that I can't see Israel again .
for the first time.'
"We seturned with a deep
unders ending of that la-^nt.

Bobbie and Phil Levin "How
do "first timers' describe their
visit to Israel? To do so in depth
would take pages of explanation,
so we would like to share just a
minute portion of our highs.'
What should take priority? The
nursing home at Malben where
old people aren't old because they
are made to feel useful the
absorption center where we met a
29-year-old Rumanian engineer
who said, 'These are only tem-
porary inconveniences. I will find
work, and now I am with my
"There was more the Good
Fence, the Golan Heights, kib-
butzim, moshavim.
"How can one describe
Jerusalem where history en-
velops every building and every
hill, or the experience at Masada
where we stood in the remains of
the synagogue and learned of the
plight of the Jews who once wor-
shipped there. Who would believe
Beersheba, set in the middle of
the desert which now holds a
beautiful university with modern
buildings and new techniques in
"We'll always marvel at our
trip across the expanses of sand
in the Negev to suddenly find
ourselves in the midst of seres of
green fields of crops (due to ir-
rigation), making one feel as
though he were traveling through
Kansas or Iowa. Every time we
saw something that had been ac-
complished, our comment was
unbelievable' but seeing is
"There is no doubt that there
are many problems in Israel and
we were not shielded from them.
We visited the industrial port of
Ashdod where the social gap is
enormous. We saw the border
settlement of Kiryat Shmoneh
where the inhabitants are in
danger of shelling more often
than not where young people
are not anxious to remain, not
because of the danger, but
because of inadequate job and
cultrual opportunities.
"Yes. we ssw problems, but we
got the feeling that none of these
are insurmountable to the Israeli.
They have such a love of life and
their country, and it is highly
contagious. We felt as though we
belonged. It is something one
really cannot describe. Friends
had told us that you had to go to
Israel to understand this feeling.
They were right. We can only say
that from the moment we stepped
off the plane, we were filled with
pride and a warmth that is still
with us and will never leave us."
Karen and John Meyer "It's a
marvelous feeling to find a cause
to believe in and work for. In the
world we live in. such causes are
hard to come by. A typical com-
ment from many of our friends
before our mission to Israel was,
'Oh! Anyone who has ever been
there comes back just loving it!'
"Now, we are the kind of
people who won't go to a movie
unless at least five people tell us
they really loved it. and it was
the same way with Israel.
However, in our wildest dreams,
we never imagined we would
return as excited as we are.
"Israel is an incredible country
a country that must survive!
One cannot return from there and
not feel a very special feeling, a
felling that almost can't be
expressed in words. The ex-
perience of visiting there is such a
powerful one that it is capable of
changing one's entire attitude
toward life.
"In ten days we saw more than
the average tourist must see in a
month. Tel Aviv, Haifa, Kiryat
Shmona. the Good Fence, the
Golan Heights and Syrian
border. Beersheba and the
Negev, Galilee. Ashod. Safed.
Masada and the Dead Sea,
kibbutzim, moshavim. Jerusalem
I could go on forever.
"If we could get every Jew to
visit Israel just once, the
country's future would be doubly
bright because each visitor would
become a missionary for Israel.
"In short they, too, would find
a cause to believe in, the survival
of the State of Israel, which, in
reality, is our own survival."
