Metropolitan Chairman Marvin Feldman Allan Katz Named
"Marvin Feldman has been
appointed Chairman of the
Metropolitan Division of the
Jewish Federation Combined
Jewish Appeal," said Saul
Schechter Campaign Chairman.
Ron Diner has been appointed
Metropolitan Co-Chairman and
will work with Mr. Feldman in
this ilivision. The Metropolitan
Division encompasses all Jewish
organizations, synagogues, and
agem ies of Federation.
Mr Feldman, a resident of
Clearwater, has been an active
and committed member of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County since its inception and is
past general campaign chairman
of the Combined Jewish Appeal.
Mr. Diner, who is a member of
the Federation Board of
Directors, a member of the
Administration committee, also
serves as the secretary of the
"These men assume leadership
roles at a critical time. The
challunges facing us are great
because of the rise of anti-

Semitism and the increasing
isolation of Israel from the other
nations of the world," explained
Mr. Schechter.
Mr. Feldman added, "We hope

Kissinger's Shuttling
Urges Role for Jordanian Talks
Former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger suggested
here that President-Elect
Reagan should meet
separately with Prime
Minister Menachem Begin
and President Anwar Sadat
after he takes office, to be
followed possibly by a tri-
partite summit meeting. He
said he was pleased with
the progress of Israeli-
Egyptian negotiations to
date but thought the
meetings he outlined would
help advance the movement
toward an agreement.
Kissinger arrived here Sunday
night after several days in Egypt
and an unscheduled side trip to
Somalia. He insisted that his
current trip to the Middle East is
private and unofficial.
"I AM here as a private
citizen, but I will certainly talk to
President-Elect Reagan and with
Secretary of State-designate
Alexander) Haig about my im-
pressions of this visit," he said.
Kissinger is traveling with his
wife. Nancy, and with William
I'aley, president of the Columbia
Broadcasting System (CBS)

The former Secretary of State
scotched speculation that he
might replace Sol Linowitz as the
special Presidential envoy to the
Middle East after Reagan is in-
augurated Jan. 20. He said he
was not looking for a job in the
new Administration and did not
want to become involved in day-
to day negotiations.
"But I have said I would be
ready to undertake special
missions at critical periods, if
such will occur in the Middle
East, which is difficult to predict
at this moment," he said.
Allen, Reagan's appointee to
head the National Security Coun-
cil, said that Kissinger would
serve as a special adviser to the
President on foreign policy
matters and that his duties might
include missions abroad. Kissin-
ger's present trip is said to have
been undertaken with Reagan's

Chairman Of Professional
Health Services Division
Dr. Allan Katz has been ap-
pointed Chairman of the Pro-
fessional Health Services
Division of the Jewish Federation
of Pinellas Countys 1981
Combined Jewish Appeal, ac-
cording to Saul Schechter,
Campaign Chairman. Dr. Stan
Rosewater will work with Dr.
Katz and serve as Co-Chairman.
The Professional Health
Services Division will include all
medical physicians, osteopathic
physicians, dentists, psychi-
atrists, psychologists, and medi-
cal suppliers.
Dr. Katz, a Radiologist, is on
the staff of the St. Petersburg
General Hospital, and is a
member of Temple B'nai Israel.
Mr. Schechter expressed pleasure
about Dr. Katz accepting this
position because of the respect he
enjoys throughout the com-
munity. Dr. Katz has diligently
reorganized and improved the
Professional Health Services
Division. "We will be working
closely with the Metropolitan
Division this year in order to
assure that we will approach

diplomat met with senior army
officers and flew to the Etzion air
base in Sinai which Israel will
turn over to Egypt next year.
Observers suggested that he
visited the air base in order to
formulate proposals to Reagan
for eventual American use of the
facility, said to be one of the most
sophisticated in the world and
certainly in the region.
ISRAEL IS known to favor
such a strong American presence
just across its border, but Sadat
has refused to entertain such
suggestions, at least until after
the entire Sinai is returned to
Left wing Civic Group
PARIS (JTA) The leftwing organization, "Movement
Against Racism, anti-Semitism and for Peace" (MRAP), is
.iliDiu to expel one of its members who has agreed to act as
defense attorney for Robert Flaurisson, a French historian who
has written u book in which he contends that the Nazi gas
chambers never existed and that the number of Holocaust
victims hus been "grossly exaggerated."
The former professor, who was dismissed from his post at
Lyons University in the wake of a scandal caused by one of his
prev ious books on the same theme, is being sued by eight civic
organizations for spreading "racist theories." Flaurisson claims
that he is neither anti-Jewish nor pro-Nazi but that his "historic
research" has led him to promulgate his view.
The attorney, Yvon Chottard, a veteran member of MRAP,
claims that Flaurisson has a right to express his opinions, how-
ever shocking these may be, and has a right to legal defense,
t'liollard says his position is similar to that of Noam Chomsky,
the American writer who is famous for his works on linguistics,
who has written a foreword to Flaurisson's book as a gesture
towards "freedom of expression."
MRAP executive committee members said that Chottard's
expulsion will be discussed and most probably decided at the
organization's annual congress. They said that acting for
Flaurisson and belonging to an anti-fascist organization is a
coiitrudktion. MRAP members said they also intend to re-
examine the French government's policy towards members of
the righlwing racist organizations. Some MRAP members
!>clieve that the judiciary branch of the government is far too
lenient with such individuals.
Famed former Prisoner of Conscience Edward Kuznetsov,
speaking at Columbia University, emphatically reminds his
listeners to work for the release of his Leningrad Trial co-
defendant Joseph Mendelevich, whose photo is seen behind

Struggle for Soviet Jewry. He was released from the Gulag in
1979 as part of a dramatic U.S.-USSR prisoner swap. (Photo by

most Dr. Gordon Saskin, a
voung professional who
gives of himself almost full
lime to the Jewish com-
munity is such a person. Dr.
>.i-kni leaves one with the
distinct impression that he is
,i man who is not afraid to
gel involved." A long-time
uiivist in a variety of
causes, Dr. Saskin explains,
"People often support one
organization which may have
limited impact on universal
Jewish issues. Because of
lIns, individuals often miss
ihe "big picture.*'
Dr. Saskin's many faceted activities include the Jewish Day
School of Pinellas County of which he was a co-founder. He looks
fi irw ard to the school's expansion into the third grade next year,
and a large enrollment in the kindergarten. He believes Jewish
education is an important concern and that increasing numbers
ill Jewish parents will want their children in the Day School
'especially in light of the Supreme Court ruling allowing
Christmas programs in public schools, and the Fundamentalist
Christian resurgence." Dr. Sakin also believes that advocacy of
our political positions must be a position of informed advocacy,
and is therefore active in the American Israeli Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC), headquartered in Washington, D.C., and
Is t he only lobby for Israel in the halls of Congress.
Cordon was a co-founder of the Young Leadership Division of
the Jewish Federation of Pinellas County and is on the National
United Jewish Appeal Young Leadership Cabinet. He is a
dedicated volunteer with the Jewish r'ederation and serves as
chairman of the Community Relations Council. As such, Gordon
monitors the political and social Issues that may affect, both
positively and negatively, the total Jewish community, for
example the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and the rise in anti-
Semitism. He also serves Federation as a member of the
Campaign Cabinet and the Long Range Planning Committee.
Dr. Saskin's involvement in the leadership of Jewish activities
has earned him a listing in the "Who's Who of World Jewry."
(ordon was born and grew up in Indianapolis, and received
lii-> education through high school in the public school system
there. He received his BA from Indiana University and his MD
Irom the Indiana School of Medicine. Post graduate work was
completed at Duval Medical Center, Jacksonville, at Christ
Hospital in Cincinnati, and the University of Cincinnati Medical
(enter. Gordon practices in St. Petersburg as an ear, nose and
throat specialist, and as a plastic surgeon. He is on the staff of
the St. Petersburg Medical Center, Bayfront Medical Center,
Day Surgery, All Childrens Hospital, and St. Anthony's
In liXiH, while he was in Miami, Gordon metl lelene Freifeld on
i blind date. They were married a year later and when Gordon
completed his schooling they moved to St. Petersburg where
i lelene grew up and her family resides. The Saskin's have two
children, Sonya seven and a half, and Marcus five. They are a
close and sharing family and maintain their togetherness by
often combining family vacations with Jewish programs,
whether it be in the Poconos where they attended a conference
on UJA National Youth Leadership, or in Washington, D.C.,
where AIPAC activities require their presence.
Dr. Saskin's dedication and commitment represent the Jewish
component of political action at its best. He looks upon himself
as a Jewish survivalist. "I believe the Jewish community is an
endangered species. We have problems surrounding us politi-
cally, socially, religiously, and economically. Our first means of
defense is to know one's own people, its history, religion, and
culture.'Once this is understood, one should be a 'proud ac-
livist," maintaining and improving the structure of our Jewish
community both at home, around the world and in Israel. With
this in mind. Dr. Saskin adds. "I am a strong supporter of
federation. The Federation is the sum of all parts of the total
Jewish community."

Pain Relief
Machine Stimulates Muscle
TEL AVIV An advanced
transcutaneous electrical nerve
stimulation (TENS) unit which
combines muscle rehabilitation
for the first time with pain relief
has been developed here by an
Israeli kibbutz industry.
The new nerve stimulator, the
size of a pocket calculator, has
been developed by Agar Elec-
tronics Ltd. of Kibbutz Ginosar
together with the Hadassah
Hospital, Jerusalem, after five
years of research and application
in Israel and abroad.
The medical electronics
system, called Neurogar IV,
provides the electrical stimulus
which among other impulses is
said to prevent pain signals from
various parts of the body from
reaching the brain while at the
same time activating damaged
muscles. The small seven-ounce
unit is designed for use by
patients themselves (under
medical supervision) by
physiotherapists, as well as in
clinics, doctor's offices and

target muscle, creating the
blocks between sensory and
motor nerves. It is especially
applicable when the patient
cannot voluntarily or is unwilling
to activate muscles.
The advanced Neurogar
system is effective in easing the
pain of rheumatism sufferers,
creating new muscular
facilitation for post-operative
patients, and even aiding stroke
victims to the extent that
movement is achieved despite
paralysis. The efficiency of these
units for muscle rehabilitation, it
is claimed, is being proven in
sports medicine with athletes
here utilizing them for the ef-
fective treatment of pulled
muscles. Victims of fractures are
said to be able to activate the
broken members immediately
after removing their casts with
the application of Neurgoar
during all phases of treatments.
The Israeli developed system,
it was also noted, will usually
obviate the needs for pills and
injections which are often
poisonous or habit-forming for
many patients.
A VARIETY of clinical studies
of treatment with Neurogar are
available based on clinical and
statistical research of patients in
Israel and abroad.
Mass-produced at the Agar
plant on the shores of the Sea of
Galilee, in coordination with
Prof. Florella M agora of the
Dept. of Anestheseology, and
Joseph Tannenbaum of the Dept.
of Bio-Medical Engineering of
Hadassah Hospital, the units are
already in use in thousands of
hospitals, clinics, and patients'
homes throughout the world.
Neurogar IV operates on a
simple 4AA Alkaline battery on
one electric channel and weighs
220 grams (7.7 ounces). The
personal pain relief Neurogar 111
instrument weighs 100 grams.

all of us and near impossible
for others. Anti-Semitism is
on the rise. Terrorism has
become a way of life. Israel,
as always, stands alone.
Morality on both a personal
and international level seems
to be non-existent. How,
then, in a world filled with
apathy and antipathy, in the
midst of so much despair can
we be expected to maintain
our faith?
The Torah portion for this week, Beshalach, contains one of
the oldest triumphal songs on record. On this Shabbat Shirah we
read the Song of Moses, sung by Moses and the Children of
Israel on the shores of the Red Sea itself. As the Children of
Israel stood on the banks of the Red Sea with the army of
Pharaoh rapidly coming upon them, they were filled with dread
and despair. Had they been miraculously brought forth from
Egypt only to die here, by the sea? At the Lord's command,
Moses stood before the people and stretched his staff over the
waters. But, says the Midrash, the sea was divided only after
Israel had stepped into it and the waters had reached their
noses. Only then did it become dry land. Hence we read: "The
Children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry
ground." (Exodus 14:22)
Thus the Song of Moses celebrates not only their deliverance
from danger but also their supreme act of faith. In the face of
I overwhelming odds, in the midst of despair, the Children of
! Israel had to demonstrate that their faith did not waiver and
| that they would not wait for God to act in their behalf.
Faith is not an easy commodity to find. It requires self-search
! and, like the Children of Israel, self-sacrifice. But with faith we
can face the hopeless and find it less so. Faith can give us the
1 courage and the will to face life and then to live and experience it
fully. So as our ancestors discovered at the Red Sea, so we may
discover today.

Community Effort Bring Joy
And Meaning to Chanukah
A Nose for Oil
Wouldn't you know it?
Now, Sen. Charles Percy, who'll be heading the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee when the
Reagan administration takes over on Jan. 20, has
been quoted in Chicago as saying that he does not
support Yasir Arafat as head of Palestinian state.
We understood that he said precisely that in an
interview with Communist Party Chief Leonid
Brezhnev in Moscow. At least, we understood that
until Percy corrected the record about two weeks ago
that he had made his statement not to Brezhnev but
to Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko.
Now comes the latest correction of the record. All
that stuff about poor old machinegun-toting Arafat
wanting an eentsy. teentsy, weenie state of his own
to head up and play with, and Percy's agreeing with
Brezhnev that Arafat just ought to have it well,
none of that was correct. Not even in the amended
version (No. 1) that the agreement was with
In the latest version (No. 2), Percy has told
Chicago Jewish leaders that all he envisioned was
some sort of "Palestinian entity" to be created in the
form of something less than a state."
By now. who cares? The damage has already been
done. As in all these vicious anti-Israel things in
which politicians and the general press engage these
days, neither truth nor historical accuracy is the
What is the issue? Well, we've said it a thousand
times in a thousand different ways. In the end, it
always spells oil and, as a good corporation man,
Percy has a sure nose for it.
All Those Warnings
All those warnings outgoing Middle East Envoy
Sol Linowitz issued during his farewell trip to Israel
made huge headlines in the press.
Israel must refrain from annexing the Golan
Heights. Israel must refrain from announcing any
more settlements. Israel had best be prepared for
more concessions when the autonomy talks resume
under the Reagan administration. Israel ought to
heed Egyptian President Sadat's warning of his own
that he would take poorly to the prospect of a Reagan
administration tilt toward Israel. And Mr. Reagan
ought to pay attention to that, too.
The warnings have been legion.
Now comes the story of a Linowitz statement that
President Carter's envoy believes Israel has received
no credit worth talking about for all the sacrifices it
has made thus far in the entire Camp David process
in the cause of peace.
International Liberators9
Planned for 1981
Professor Elie VViesel,
distinguished author and
Chairman of the United States
Holocaust Memorial Council, and
himself a survivor of Auschwitz

the December 10, 1960, Council
meeting that the Council will
sponsor the first International
Conference of Liberators of
Concentration Camps. It will
take place in the fall of 1981 ir
the Nation'8 Capital. The con-
ference will honor and pay tribute
to the Allied Forces who liberated
Nazi concentration camps The
United States, the host country,
is the home of over 5,000 sur-
vivors of these camps.
The United States Army
Center of Military History,
ommanded by Brigadier General
James L. Collins, Jr., will provide
liaison between the Department
of Defense and the Council.
Every effort will be made to
locate medical corps personnel,
military correspondents and

brimming with pride when
describing the joy and ap-
preciation of the children,
famines and elderly who had
received toys and food for
Chanukah. Among those groups
who worked to help Jewish
families celebrate the holiday
were the Women's Auxiliary of
the Jewish War Veterans, the
Pacesetters group of Ahavat
Shalom, the United Synagogue

Research Group to Study Immigrants
NEW YORK Russian
Jewish immigrants living in 14
American cities will soon be
asked to participate in a National
Research Study sponsored by the
Council of Jewish Federations.
Directed by Professors Rita and
Julian Simon of the University of
Illinois, the Study will give these
new Americans the opportunity
to assist the Jewish community
in assessing the progress of its
resettlement efforts.
Covering many aspects of the
emigre experience, the Study will
concentrate on socio-economic
adjustment, and integration into
American society and the
American Jewish community.
The project is supervised by the
CJF Jewish Resettlement
Committee, chaired by Bernard
Manekin of Baltimore, and is
financed by a grant from the
Federal Government. Fieldwork
will be conducted by Audit &
Survey. Inc.. a national research
firm, and the data analyzed by
Drs. Rita and Julian Simon.
Over the next several months,
700 interviews of emigres who
arrived since 1972 will be con-
ducted in New York. Chicago,
Los Angeles. Philadelphia.
Cleveland. Boston. San Fran-
cisco, Milwaukee, Houston.
Kansas City. Rochester. Atlanta,
Columbus and Worcester. Each
90-minute interview will gather
information on the entire family,
relating education, training and
employment in the Soviet Union
with current vocational, social,
educational and personal adjust-
ment. Data will also be gathered
on Jewish identity and in-
volvement in Jewish communal
activities. Identities of those
taking part in the Study will be
strictly confidential.
Since 1972, 50,000 Jews have
left the Soviet Union. From Oct.
I 1978 to Sept. 30. 1980, over
46.000 settled in the United
States, where a comprehensive
resettlement program has been
implemented with the assistance
of $46.7 million from the Federal
Block Grant. Through this
nationwide effort, Jewish emigres
from the Soviet Union have
received financial assistance,
vocational counseling, language
and vocational training, health
services and personal counseling
in multifaceted programs co-
ordinated by local Federations.

Dear Mr. Bernstein:
My mother is a widow living on her own for the last two
years. She recently broke her hip and has other medical prob
Jems. The doctor says that she will need a nursing home place
ment. What will we do when Medicare paymeaU ran out? Am I
Financially responsible as her daughter since she lives in her own
apartment? Where is the Jewish Nursing Howie located?
DwirMrs. D.
If your mother has a limited income and savings below
*1.500 she will be eligible for Medicaid coverage for nursing
home bills after Medicare is exhausted. If she has lived in a
separate household the last few years, you do not have a legal
obligation to assist with such bills. Thanks to an agreement be-
tween the Jewish Federation and Rivergarden Nursing Home in
Jacksonville, your mother may be eligible for placement in a
Itwish environment. There is a wide range of public nursing
homos in the area to choose from. Call our office for any further
assistance Our numbers are 446 1005 or 381-2373.
Mr. Bernstein
Special thanks to a reader who responded to our article
which dealt with ways of socializing and contacting other Jewish
individuals and families in the area. She has resided in our area
lor tm eral decades and pointed out:
If readers think it is, difficult to socialize and contact
Jewish individuals now. imagine 30 years ago when I havarecol
unions of approximately 16 Jewish families living in the entire
community. '
Thank you. Mrs S foryour interesting comment.

and that, for a person's
retirement benefits to depend "on
such false information would be a
cruel disservice to these sur-
vivors of the Holocaust."
Under the new procedures, the
Social Security Administration
will work with U.S. embassies
abroad and through any other
available channels to locate and
obtain the early records of age or
birth. If no birth certificate or
early evidence of age can be
found, social security will accept
a written statement from the
applicant describing the circum-
stances under which the age was
falsified. This statement will be
used in lieu of a birth certificate
in determining a person's real
date of birth.
For these special rules to
apply, an applicant must be able
to prove that he or she adopted
an incorrect age to escape perse-
cution, confinement in concentra-
tion camps, or extermination.
There are many different kinds of
evidence that the Social Security
Administration will accept as
proof that a person is a survivor
of the Holocaust. Included are
copies of correspondence from or
depositions to the West German
Government under indemnifi-
cation procedures, official war
records, identification papers or
passports identifying the holder
as Jewish, and evidence of resi-
dence in a Nazi-controlled
Even if a person does not have
evidence of survivor status, it is a
good idea to contact Social
Security. There may be other
records, for instance, with sur-
vivor study organizations, which
Social Security can help locate.
Holocaust survivors who
believe they are old enough to
retire should contact a Social
Security office as soon as possible
because the date the applications
are filed may determine the date
benefits begin. It is estimated
that there are between 2,000 and
10,000 Holocause survivors of
retirement age who will be af-
fected by these new procedures.
