ciation on behalf of
kellas County Jewish com-
[nity to Marvin Feldman, the
I general campaign chairman,
his efforts last year. Stan
tvmark gave a brief report on
i progress of the newly formed
din is t ration committee, of
|ich he is chairman. He ex-
ssed confidence that efficient
re-organized office
lures would soon be in-
luted.
chechter introduced Gerry
sin, executive director of the
rish Federation of Pinellas
jnty, who explained where the
dollar is spent. He em-
phasized the need for additional
funds, not only in Pinellas
County and in Israel, but also to
support life-giving services
provided for Jews in Iran,
Argentina, Syria and all around
the world where Jews need help.
"Our business is not raising
money," he said, "but saving
lives and building a nation. The
money we raise is a means to that
end."
An enthusiastic discussion of
the Campaign followed, and it
was agreed unanimously that a
concerted effort be made to
motivate more people to take an
active part in the campaign. It
was proposed that the total
Jewish community be educated
as to where their money is spent
and who is benefited locally,
nationally and internationally.
There was a lively exchange of
ideas about the functions and
social events to be held during
the coming year and how to make
them both productive and ex-
citing.
Everyone present was con-
fident that the 1981 campaign
would be challenging,
stimulating, and ultimately, the
most successful campaign ever
held in Pinellas County.

Chairman Volunteer Committee
Jewish Family Service Receives
Funds for Treatment Program
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service received a $600,000
budget from the Pinellas-Pasco
District Mental Health Board to
provide a system of four separate
residential homes and a Day
Treatment Program geared to
allow 55 older adults to leave
long-term mental care facilities
and return to successful living in
the community.
After the first two years of
operation, the system will also
serve to allow isolated older
adults who need various levels of
support care to remain in the
local community, rather than
stay in long-term care in-
stitutions.
Murray M. Jacobs, president,
stated that there are many
seniors, both in the Jewish
community and the community
at large, who are experiencing
mental problems such as senility,
severe depression, etc., who have
been "trapped" in mental
hospitals. Currently, there are
government-subsidized HUD
projects which provide housing
such as Menorah Center;
however, there are many elderly
who need more comprehensive
care than is offered.
THE PROGRAM will employ
a professional staff of ap-
proximately 40 which will include
social workers and mental health
technicians who will have the
support of a part-time
psychiatrist, medical doctor and
some nursing staff.
Harry Green, chairman of the
house committee, firmly stressed
that the agency will utilize homes
in residential neighborhoods that
will complement a home-like
environment for each resident.
Green explained the hectic plans
ahead to find suitable homes and
to assure proper renovations such
as bathrooms equipped for the
handicapped with rails, etc.,
geared for older adults.
Green added, "All homes will
be renovated to provide dignified
and sound housing for all
residents." Funds received from
the District Mental Health Board
will allow the program to care for
senior residents who often have
only SSI or Social Security in-
come and could not normally
afford such care in the com-
munity.
Michael Bernstein, executive
director, mentioned that the
program is officially known as
the Geriatric Residential
Treatment System and will
provide care based on the in-
dividual resident's needs.
EACH HOME will ac-
commodate approximately 12
residents. "We wish each
resident to view it as his home
and serve as a support towards
fellow residents." A professional
group home will offer psycho-
social treatment with some
support nurse staff. Other homes
will offer a team of mental health
professionals. Satellite apart-
ments will serve four residents
each. Clients will be assisted with
training in the basics of daily
living, such as grooming and
personal care, use of money, etc.
Residents will move to various
levels of care as able, and also
move on to independent living.
The residents will be encouraged
to utilize outside recreational and
such service agencies as able.
Chairman of the Volunteer
Committee Henry Elkind
describes the committee as in-
strumental in the quality of care
for residents. "We have
professionals, including doctors,
dentists, psychiatrists,
psychologists and lawyers who
will offer their services on a
regular basis to assure proper
treatment plans and medical
care. We are confident that our
commitment to personalized care
will make the project quite in-
novative and successful.
Bernstein is currently in the
process of hiring a project
director and fiscal manager. Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service
plans for the opening of the first
home to be in December of this
year, with all homes and the Day
Treatment Program fully
operational before July 1981.
Bernstein credited an involved
and dedicated board of directors,
along with the strong support of
the Jewish Federation as the
main reason this project is
getting off the ground.

Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service provides a wide range of
social service programs. These
include individual and group
psychiatric and marital and
family counseling by trained
professionals. The agency also
offers emergency homemaker
service for the elderly and
disabled, interest-free college
loans and outreach for the
elderly. Confidential services are
provided at 304 S. Jupiter Ave.,
Clearwater, and 8167 Elbow Lane
N., St. Petersburg. Call 381-2373
or 446-1006.

Dr. Segal Chosen 'Man of the Year'
The board of directors of Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service Inc.
has unanimously chosen Dr. Sam
Segal to receive the first annual
Man of the Year award.
Dr. Segal has practiced general
medicine in the St. Petersburg
area for over 14 years. "He has,"
according to Paulene Korman,
vice president and Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service chair-
woman, "given unselfishly of his
professional time to help
children, adults and seniors who
have experienced medical
emergencies."
Murray M. Jacobs, president
of Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service, stated that professional
Dr. Sam Segal
volunteers such as Sam Segal
have proven to be the heart and
soul of services provided by Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service.
A cocktail party honoring Dr.
Segal will be held Nov. 1 at the
home of Harry Green, member of
the executive board of Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service at which
time a plaque will be presented to
Dr. Segal. Hors d'oeuvres will be
served and there will be en-
tertainment featured. Donations
are $100 a couple with all
proceeds going towards servicing
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service clients. Reservations can

Raising Money Is the Means
Saving Lives, Building a Nation
Editor's Note: Recently, a group of concerned individuals met to
start the planning process for the 1981 Combined Jewish Appeal
Campaign of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas County. It was
evident that there is a prevailing feeling throughout the com-
munity that Pinellas County has not done its best in educating
the community as to what the Combined Jewish Appeal is all
about.
Below is an interview with Gerry Rubin, the new Executive
Director of Federation, who is assisting Saul Schechter, the 1981
Campaign Chairman, in preparation for what is hoped to be the
most successful campaign in Pinellas County's history.
IMM Gerry, last week you
related the experience of a family
fleeing from a "place" to freedom
in Israel. Many readers com-
mented that this family "made
it," so to speak.
Gerry: If you think that our
responsibility ends when we
remove a Jewish family from
persecution and degradation, you
are mistaken. Many of our
survivors would face a lifetime of
problems if it were not for the
generosity of American Jewry
through their gifts to the annual
UJA-Federation campaign.
Suzanne: Once in Israel, what
problems could a family have?
Gerry: The economic problems
in Israel, spearheaded by ram-
pant inflation in a country that
diverts most of its own funds to
defense causes untold hardships
on not only its native born
population but more so on the
thousands of Jewish souls
"saved" from religious genocide.
Suzanne: Can you be more
specific? From your agency files,
which our Combined Jewish
Appeal supports, could you
enlighten The Floridian
readership of one such experience
of one family, no, one person who
we helped bring to their new life
of freedom in the democratic
state of Israel?
Gerry: The story of "Ruti" is
synonomous with the plight of
thousands of Jewish
who have grown to rely for
very survival in Israel on an
agency aupported by the
Combined Jewish Appeal
In most ways "Ruti" is a
typical Israeli 16-year-old
vibrant, awakening to the
possibilities of learning, filled
with expectations for tomorrow.
But Ruti is also important for
what she is not.
She is not a drug addict, or a
prostitute, or involved in other
serious crime. She is not wasting
these formative years wandering
idly through the streets of the
distressed neighborhood she still
calls home, barely able to read or
write, with no job skills and no
hope of escape to a better life.
The brutal realities of such a
life are not unknown to Ruti.
Many of the young girls who
were her "friends" in Sderot, a
small town between Beersheva
and Jerusalem, are caught up in
the deadening cycle of poverty,
illiteracy and crime, and until a
few years ago, Ruti was likely to
become just one more of its
nameless victims.
RUTI WAS born in
Casablanca, and her family
settled in Sderot when she was a
year old. One of nine children,
Ruti says of her mother only that
she is "a good woman, but things
got beyond her." Of her father,
Ruti says even less. Frequently
out of work and with no skills
readily marketable in Israel's
economy, Ruti's father sought
solace in drinking and playing
cards with his friends.
Soon Ruti was avoiding home
where her family of 11 oc-
cupied two rooms as much as
she avoided school, where other
children seemed to grasp things
more quickly than she, and
language and cultural differences
made her feel an outsider.
Ruti's life began to change
when a social worker suggested
she attend school in a Jewish
Agency Youth Aliyah village in
Kiryat Yearim, a few miles from
Jerusalem. Ruti, whose life held
little to be enthusiastic about,
was skeptical, but she agreed to
take a look.
"I CAME for a visit and I
loved it," she says now. "Here
were trees and greenery and
fresh, beautiful air. For the first
time in my life I felt I could
breathe'

Ruti joined 50 girls and 150
boys who live and attend classes
at Kiryat Yearim, all of them
from strikingly similar
backgrounds. More than 90
percent are the children of
parents from North Africa, and
virtually all are from large
families. They share bitter ex-
periences of broken homes,
troubled parents, difficulties in
school and problems with the
authorities.
Ruti was placed with one of ten
groups at the school made up of
youngsters of equivalent
scholastic standing. Her program
was carefully structured to
reinforce and to build upon her
own incentive to learn, and used
techniques to help youngsters
like Ruti achieve breakthroughs
in the classroom.
"The more I could read, the
more I wanted to read," Ruti
recalls. "Jumbles of words and
numbers began to mean
something, something I could use
to learn more and to be more. I
began to find out about art and
music, things I knew nothing
about. Even organized sports
were new to me."
KIRYAT Yearim is built
around a total educational en-
vironment, of which formal
classroom instruction is only a
part. Here, the emphasis is on
expanding students' minds while
simultaneously providing
healthy doses of both discipline
and affection something few
students have ever known.
"Our students live here; they
don't just come by to attend
classes," says administrator Hi
Ophir in discussing the
program's success. "Every
activity is important, and some
of our most serious learning takes
place outside the classroom."
Ruti and her classmates attend
plays staged by professional
actors and produce their own.
They are frequent visitors to the
theaters and museums of
Jerusalem, and many are
sculpting, painting, making films
and performing in school
programs.
Equally important, the
programs at Kiryat Yearim
enable children like Ruti to
appreciate the links between
themselves and their country.
Students spend several days each
year touring the country and
visiting Jewish historic sites to
better understand the in-
separable relationship between
the Jewish people and the land of
Israel.
TODAY Ruti is a voracious
reader and writes with a grasp of
the language, and of life, beyond
her years. Art and music hold a
special attraction for her, and she
is developing into a promising
soccer player.
Ruti, like her classmates, has
learned to set herself apart from
the life she knew in Sderot, and
now is capable of shaping her
own future and of becoming a
productive citizen of Israel. She
is growing up.
"I go home to Sderot every
other Shabbat," Ruti says.
"Some things have improved.
My father is not as bad as he was,
tout all in all, the situation is not
that good.
"I think I under stand now why
my father felt helpless to change
things, even though I don't agree
with him. And I try to help my
mother cope with the pressures
on her. At least now I feel there is
something I can do, that there is
a chance to make things bettor
than they are."
RUTI HAS almost completed
Kiryat Yearim's two-year
program and plans to continue
her studies. But for thousands of
"Rutis" in distressed neigh-
borhoods and towns throughout
Israel, the future is clouded.
Youth Aliyah, feeling the
pressures of inflation and a
shortfall in world campaign
income, has been forced to put a
ceiling on its programs for the
coming year.
Two thousand youths will be
turned away from
facilities like Kiryat Y
unless the flow of fun_
world Jewry to the
Agency increases swiftly
dramatically.
They will remain in the u,
of Israel's cities function,
illiterate, unemployable
search of diversion, wonderi
their chance will come and i
they will do if it never does.

Looking to the Future

man and Gerald Benstock.
Boker is enthusiastic about the
future of the Endowment Fund.
"People who make philanthropic
gifts are generously rewarded by*
our tax laws in the form of special
tax deductions, and it is im-
portant that information con-
cerning this method of per-
petuation of Jewish community
life come to the attention of our
community.
"It is the intention of our
committee to seek out persons
who have the ability to take
advantage of the Endowment
Fund Program, so they can see
how they can best benefit from
donations of property during
their lifetime and receive a tax
deducation while they retain
income from the property, and
how they can receive a sub-
stantial deduction from their
estate taxes by making gifts
through their wills," stated
Boker.
"Our committee intends to
work with trust officers, at-
torneys, accountants and fife
insurance agents to encourage
this method of giving, and we
also intend to help these
professionals by providing the
proper language that needs to be
used to take advantage of
existing tax laws."
A substantial among of
logistical support for the
establishment of this
Endowment Fund has come from
the Council of Jewish
Federations. The current
chairman of the Endowment
Fund development committee of
the "Council" is Norman A.
Sugarman. Sugarman is a
Cleveland, Ohio attorney who
formerly headed the office of the
Internal Revenue Service dealing
with charitable organizations.
Sugarman has made numerous
visits to the Pinellas County
area, and he compared the
situation in Pinellas County to
that of Phoenix, Ariz., because of
the number of retirees and the
similar business interests of the
two communities. Phoenix
established an Endowment Fund
in 1973, and now has ap-
proximately S3,000,000 on
to help fund the vital needs <
local Phoenix community and t
needs of Israel.
Mrs. Kent explained that i
Endowment Fund wi
established with the Tampa i
Orlando communities in order t
share costs and reduo
duplication of work until
time that it is advisable
separate the cities. Mrs.
added that a gift to
Endowment Fund by a memb
of the Pinellas County
munity would be used forl
Pinellas County needs and thtl
needs of Israel, unless the dora]
decided otherwise.
Furthermore, she said,

since the Fund is in the process oil

numerous members of thtl

Dear Mr. Bernstein:
My mother is age 89 and has been living on her own suc-
cessfully for over 14 years. Suddenly, she has become frightened
by a diagnosed heart condition and is afraid to sleep alone at
night.
I live up north and have no room, and my husband is opposed
to a lack of privacy it would create. Can I find someone to live
with her at a reasonable rate? Mrs. C.
Dear Mrs. C.
With a large number of Jewish elderly living in Pinellas
County, we receive a number of calls each week requesting such
help. We live in a lonely society with loss of "mishpacha" as we
knew it years ago. Jewish Family Service does offer emergency
homemaking services for several hours a week and psychiatric
counseling. On occasion, we have been able to locate dedicated
individuals willing to live with clients for a modest fee.
Unfortunately, there are not enough qualified live-in com-
panions to tackle the high number of requests. Hopefully, there
may be individuals reading this column who may be willing to
work as a sleep-in companion and will call at 381-2373. You may
also wish to consider the availability to rent subsidized senior
housing in the area. These projects offer support systems, in-
cluding congregate meals and special safety features. Call
Jewish Family Service for further details.
Sincerely,
Mr. Bernstein

Sen. Stone's Successor
We are unhappy about the outcome of the ejections,
particularly that incumbent U.S. Sen. Richard Stone was
not returned to his seat as Florida's senator on Capitol
Hill. And that he will not return to his chairmanship of the
Subcommittee on Middle Eastern Affairs of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.
In our view, much was left to be desired in the
Senator's reelection campaign machine. Apparently, it
failed sufficiently to arouse voter thinking among his
supporters, many of whom are our readers in South
Florida, as well as readers of our other publications
throughout the state.
But if many more did not go to the polls to be
counted, it seems to us that they were not sufficiently
impressed with the vital need to retain Sen. Stone on
Capitol Hill, and particularly in his key post. It was this
failure to inform and motivate them that may well have
made the difference.
Now we are reexamining the campaign for Stone's
vacant seat, which will be decided in the November
elections. This final campaign also shapes up as a cliff-
hanger.
While we intend to make our recommendation i
another editorial as to whom our readers might best
consider, we are impelled to repeat that a large voter-
turnout will again be essential. After all, in November the
die will be cast.
The Right to Speak
Whether ne is for or against the reelection of
President Carter in November, we are appalled by the
response of militant Jews to the Presidents appearance in
a Long Island. N.Y. synagogue last week during which
the militants engaged in a shouting spectacle designed to
drown the President out.
We have ourselves used these very columns since the
1976 election campaign that put him into office to set our
own disappointments with the President before the eyes of
public examination.
If the President's most important foreign policy
achievement in office was the Camp David accord we
have not hesitated, and we do not hestitate now. to declare
that the accord is divisive and dangerous. It aids Egypt's
aims immensely; it shrinks Israels possibilities for
fl^ii JU8t as unmen9ely i the prospects for peace in the
Middle East are not aided by the accord even one jot.
This is our view. But it is a far cry from shouting
epithets at President Carter and showing disrespect for 8
the office of the presidency by engaging in the kind of
exhibitionist behavior that the militants engaged in
during Mr. Carter's appearance at the Long Island
synagogue.
As President, he deserved the respect of his audience
to be heard. We are embarrassed by those who would have
denied him the right to speak a right shared by all
Americans. '

Pope Deplores Paris Bombings
As 'Unworthy' of Christians
ROME (JTA) Pope John Paul II has deplored
the bombing of a Paris synagogue as an act "unworthy of
man and even more of Christiana." His feeling was ex-
pressed in a telegram to Cardinal Francois Marty of Paris,
sent on the Pontiffs behalf by the Papal Secretary of
State, Cardinal Agostino Casaroli.
The message stated: "The Holy Father shares your
indignation and that of all the French before the act ol
terrorism directed against the Jews joins in prayer for
the innocent victims and wishes to express his words of
solidarity and comfort to the relatives of the victims and
to the wounded. Moreover, he expresses ardent hopes that
similar acts of violence may be definitely banished as un-
worthy of man and even more of Christians."
A new wave of terrorism is
eping over Europe, its roots
embedded in a nostalgic
reversion to the Hitler era and
the leadership principle. Unlike
the extreme leftist and nihilist
variety of terror which preceded
it, the new terrorism is
xenophobic, racist and violently
anti-Semitic. It has a definite
objective the establishment of
nghtwing, authoritarian regimes
in West Germany. France, Italy
and some of the smaller countries
on the continent.
The old terrorist organizations
were loosely knit in an in-
ternational network in which the
Palestine Liberation
Organization was the binding
factor. Members of West Ger-
many's Baader-Meinhof gang,
the Provisional Irish Republican
Army, the French "student"
rioters and others were trained in
PLO camps and some of them
were armed, partly financed and
"coordinated" through the PLO
which, in turn, received sub-
stantial funds, arms and some
direction from the Soviet Union.
THE LEFTIST and nihilist
zealots did not seek to establish a
new political order. Like the
Weathermen of the '60's in this
country, their goal was todeetroy
all existing government and
social institutions and then let
some new form emerge from the
ruins. It was as if. in an insensate
rage, they wanted to destroy
whatever held the world fabric
together.
Their distorted idealism and
their hopes for humanity did m|
deter them from inflicting mJ
and torture on the innocent J
from such Crimea as kidnappja.
Self-proclaimed foes of ^
government, they nevertheleal
gratefully accepted help from thfl
Soviet Union channelled laraatl
through the PLO. The KremS
was not concerned with thail
objectives; it was interested only
in their ability to create tnM I
and dissension in the Western
world.
The terrorist bands never had i,
large membership; they wen
small and conspiratorial a
structure and it was only B
France that the student agiuton
could stir up tens of thousands to
participate in demonstrations. In
Europe, therefore, dealing wita |
the terrorists waa largely il
security matter and, ultimately,
the police got control of the'!
situation.
IT IS- a different situation
today. The terrorist groups of the
right are small in number, but
they have large reservoirs of
sympathy for their aims in the
general public. In Germany,
there has always been a sub-
stantial, if covert, residue of Nan
sympathy and of anti-Semitism
which has been concealed because
it is not politic or popular to I
display it now. Indoctrination of
hatred to the extent that the
Hitler regime gave the German
people is not to be eradicated in i
single generation or even two or
three.
Neo-Nazi organizations have
existed in Germany almost u
long as the republic itself; the
authorities took the position that
in a democratic state they had
the right to exist. Until recently,
the security agencies insisted
they were not a danger to the
state; more recently, they have
changed their mind, and last
January they banned the most
notorious of the lot, the "Defense
Sport Group Hoffmann." It
continued to operate clan-
destinely, and one of its members
waa held responsible for the
death-dealing bomb at the
Munich Oktoberfest.
OUT OF the investigation of
Coatinwed on Pa*e 8
Professionals Want Foggy View
HAIFA Israel television
and radio, operated by an in-
dependent Broadcasting
Authority, have been under
considerable criticism. In their
news reporting, they seem to
emphasize the seamy side of life
and spotlight all the faults and
Daws they can uncover on the
local scene. Some of their
muckraking is first-class jour-
nalism, and publicity they have
ahed on scandalous situations
has undoubtedly been respon-
sible for important im-
provements. But there can also
be too much of a good thing.
Evening news broadcasts are
sometimes a lugubrious recital of
everything wrong, with only an
occasional positive feature.
In their defense, the broad-
casting people maintain that this
is what makes news. A little old
grandma sitting in a rocking
chair might make a pleasant
picture, but its not news
compared to, say. the sex-crazed
father who rapes his own
daughters.
THERE HAVE also been
charges that those who write and
edit the broadcast* permit their
personal political bias to in-
fluence the programs, many of
which appear intended to make .
the Begin Government look as
bad as possible. It almost seems
as if there is a deliberate cabal tc
build up a popular mood o
dissatisfaction coincidentally
just as the country prepares for
next year's elections.
Tha defense to this is "freedom
of communication;" there must
be no censorship or tampering
with the absolute freedom of the
"professionals" to present things
the way they see it. Any shifting
of personnel in the broadcasting
services is condemned as
government "interference)."
At this stage, someone had a
bright idea: Let the propheta of
gloom and destruction continue
wth the programs which they
treat aa if their private property,
but perhaps there is room on the
sir for at least one bright, op-
tunietic feature a program
which can greet the citizens daily
with "Boker Too, Israel."
THE MINISTRY of Edu-
cation, which has sponsored the
idea, ia coiffident that there will
be ample interesting and even
newsworthy material in every
area of the audio and visual
media. The variety show which is
contemplated will stress the
happy, encouraging and positive
side of life in education, culture
the arts, defense, tradition, spirit
of wkuttariMn. pioneering.
settlement on the land, national
service, work ethics, honesty,
quality of life.
Song and dance and camera
and drama can combine to make
the program appealing and heart-
lifting. It will lift the spirits and
make people appreciate the better
side of life in Israel. It will arrest
what the Chief of Staff charged
was a deterioration in confidence,
morals and morale among the (
youth of Israel caused by the .
kind of fare offered now by radio
and television.
A great idea? Not according to
the leftists and the parties in
opposition to Begin and the
Likud What's wrong with the
proposed program? It will be run
by the government, that's what's
wrong with it It will therefore
serve narrow government
propaganda purposes narrow
purposes like building public
morale and irmtillipg patriotic
feelings.
FURTHERMORE, even
before they have seen the
program, the ciritics charge that
it will be saccharine in Ha efforts
to present everything in rosy
tints. Besides, it will coat a tot of
money.
The educators are in favor, the
nay is fa favor, totaUigent
parents are in favor, the
government is all for it Opposed
re the professionals who exercise
tight control over broadcasting,
snd tha opposition parties which
expect to come back into power if
they can convince the public how

Pinellas County Jewish Day School News
The four species (palm, citron,
willow and myrtle) that are
central objects in the observance
of Sukkoth can grow in many
places throughout the world.
Traditionally, Jews try to import
the citrons and palm from Israel.
Oddly enough, the bulk of the
world's citrons are grown in
Cyprus, not Israel. They can be
grown here in Florida as well.
Few are grown, however, as
citrons do not have much of a
market value.
The lulav is traditionally the
central stalk from the top of a
date palm. However, any palm
that has a central stalk can do.
These bits of information came
to light in a conversation between
Rabbi David Susekindof Temple
Beth El and Edwin R Frankel.
principal of the Pinellas County
Jewish Day School.
Looking around the streams in
our area, one will find plenty of
willows. For myrtle one ought to
look harder, but it is around as
weU.
Indeed the school purchased a
set of the four species from Israel,
but it was also given a native set
by Rabbi Susskind. The citron
etrog is from a tree in the rabbi's
yard. Frankel watched the rabbi
clip the lulav at the synagogue.
Why all the fuss? Because in
the day school it is important to
show the students that Judaism
is neither distant nor difficult.
Students will be shown how to
plant a citron tree in their own
yards, how to raise willows, and
how to find a living lulav.
In this way, students will be
given a chance to see the objects
of Jewish practice in their natural
state, experience them, and
understand more about how they
came to receive them.
Building a Sukkah
The challenge was how to make
the building of Sukkah (booths)
for the holiday of Sukkoth (the
Jewish feast of Tabernacles) a
realistic goal for the students of
Pinellas County Jewish Day
School.
; According to the Jewish
tradition, every family should
have its own sukkah. but this is
not always done. Still, if every
family could have a sukkah .?
It was with this in mind that
the day school sponsored its first
Miniature Sukkah Building
Contest. Rather than building a
full size Sukkah a temporary,
outdoor booth large enough for a
family to use for dining the
students were asked to make
smaller models. The models were
small enough to be used as
centerpieces on the families'
festival tables. To encourage
participation in the contest,
prizes were offered.
The contest bore fruit. More
than one-third of the students
went home and built miniature
sukkahs. Each of these students
was presented with a custom-de-
signed certificate to mark the
occasion at an assembly held on
Oct. 1 at the home of the school's
principal. Where at his home? In
the sukkah. of course.
Local Resources
The students of the Pinellas
County Jewish Day School are
provided with a top notch
education. To achieve this, the
school relies heavily upon the
availability of local resources.
To enrich the study of library
science, and to encourage the
students to read, the children
visit the Tyrone branch of the St.
Petersburg public library every
two weeks.
When studying the holiday of
Sukkoth. and to show the
students that not only schools
and synagogues build sukkahs.
but also families, the students
walked to the borne of their prin-
cipal to participate in an
assembly held in his sukkah. (A
sukkah is a temporary booth in
which Jews commemorate the
booths in which their forefathers
dwelled during the 40-year trek
from Egypt to the Promised
Land.)
The students also benefit from
the larger community. Grollier
Inc. has provided the school with
special materials for classroom
use. They have sent their
representative. Mr. Perkins, to
delight students with magic and
reading skills.
The school also benefits from a
highly qualified teaching staff.
With its continued emphasis on
individualization and integration
of Jewish and general studies, the
school provides a warm atmo-
sphere where students can
mature into functioning, well-
rounded Jews.

Berkowitz, a twin who survived
Josef Mengele s experiments at

survivors who were children in

Berkowitz says he was known
f Mano Adler and nicknamed
'little Putyu" at Auschwitz
Mengele, the "angel of death"
who is reportedly fcfcBMj in
Paraquay, selected some 400
children, especially twins, for his
"medical" experiments. Six pairs
of these twins wen liberated,
ccording to Berkowitz. In
addition to himself and hie sister,
he beleives only three other pairs
of twins are now still alive.
Berkowitz, 48, lives in New
City with his wife and children,
and his sister lives in New York

Victor Bienstock
Terrorism Recalls Hitler Era
Continued from Page 4
that incident emerged highly
interesting and important fact:
according to the Bavarian
Ministry of the Interior, there
have been contacts between the
Hoffmann group and the PLO
Karl Heinz Hoffmann, the
group's "Fuehrer," flew to
Beirut, headquarters of the PLO,
in July. The Hoffmann group is
believed to have received arms
and funds from the PLO and to
have assisted the PLO in some
operations.
There is a disturbing irony in
this. We see the Soviet Union,
through the PLO, aiding a Nazi
organization which would topple
the West German Government
whose leaders are the strongest
advocates today of detente and
who are the most zealous sup-
porters of the PLO demand for
political recognition.
The Germans have tried to
conceal the anti-Semitism sur-
viving and to draw the curtain on
the nation's Nazi aberration.
There are too many people in
Germany even today who were
associated with the Nazi ap-
paratus (the president of the
republic is a former party
member), and they would prefer
to see the past forgiven and
forgotten. But voices have been
raised to protest that the
authorities do not act with the
same vigor against the neo-Nazi
elements that they showed in
crushing the leftist terrorists.
This reluctance, it is charged,
encourages neo-Nazi
manifestations.
THERE IS a difference in the
German and French situations.
By and large, the German people
feel that with reparations and
restitution and such means, they
have paid for the sins of the
Hitler regime and have relatively
clean consciences. The French
have never been able to come to
terms with themselves, for of all
the peoples on the continent who
were subjugated by the Nazi war
machine, the French collaborated
with their conquerers most
readily and the French and Poles
gave the Nazis most support in
their efforts to destroy the
Jewish people.
Details of French
collaboration, of the betrayal of
French Jews and of the
thousands of foreign Jews who
had sought refuge in France,
have been getting considerable
attention in recent years. It is not
a' pretty picture, and the French
have not been gladdened by what
this retrospective research has
brought to the surface.
Their sense of guilt, some
observers deduce, is one reason
why the French have turned on
Israel; they can subordinate this
guilt to the anger aroused by the
alleged Israeli mistreatment of
the Arabs. And then there are oil
and the policy of the Giscard
d'Estaing government to seek to
establish a powerful French
influence in the Arab world.
TENS OF thousands of
Frenchmen served in the in-
famous Vichy Milice under
Marshal Petain and Pierre Laval,
and the Milice served Hitler more
loyally than many of his Storm
Troop battalions. Thousands of
the Milice are still alive, and they
and their families can justify
their past conduct by continuing
to brand the Jew as the enemy of
France.
The French authorities have
not been overly-diligent in
tracking down rightwing
terrorists in recent years, par-
ticularly those who make the
Jews their target. President de
Gaulle had a problem because so
many of his officer corps
strenuously opposed his policy on
the liberation of Algeria. This
administration apparently has a
grave problem in that numbers of
police officers who should be
fighting the terrorists are
themselves members of terrorist
organizations who would replace
che Fifth Republic by a fascist,
authoritarian regime.
Anti-Semitism, in politer
forms, perhaps, has always been
endemic to the French. There has
hardly been an era in which in one
form or another anti-Semitism
has not been evident in France.
That was true long before the
Dreyfus scandal (it made it
possible) and was true even in the
days of Leon Blum and the
Popular Front. During the past
half-century, there has been a
whole succession of anti-Semitic
organizations in France.
IN MY working career, I have
reported on Leon Daudet's
royalist Camelots du Roi, the
infamous Cagoulards, Col. de la
Roque's Croix de Feu and many
others. There have always been
newspapers and periodicals
devoted to anti-Semitism. The
Vichy regime had no trouble
setting up a Jewish affairs
department from among these
activists; their zeal was tempered
only by their bureaucratic
inefficiency.
f Yet. to be fair, not all French-
men are or have been anti-
Semitic; there were many in-
stances in World War II in which
entire villages cooperated to
conceal Jewish refugees,
sometimes, not so much out of
love for the Jews as out of a
desire to frustrate their Nazi
overlords. Although Paris has
always been the mecca of young

William Dolgoff was recently named 'Kiwanian of the Year'
the Kiwanis Club of Boca Ciega.
Not many Jews have been
accepted as part and parcel of the
French people. The current anti-
Jewish activities will create a
wider gap between Jew and non-
Jew in France, even though its
leading newspaper, Le Monde,
said editorially: "Every French-
man, and particularly, every
policeman, should feel himself
wearing the Yellow Star."
William Dolgoff was taken by
surprise when he was named the
"Kiwanian of the Year" by the
Boca Ciega St. Petersburg
Chapter of the Kiwanis. The
honor came at the 32nd annual
installation meeting, held at
Spotos Restaurant on Thursday,
Oct. 25.
The selection of the "Kiwanian
of the Year" is done by secret
ballot and is not announced until
the installation meeting. After
the installation of officers and
