Phonothon Raises 30% f
Increase Over Last Year
The women's phonethon was
successfully launched when over
1,000 people were contacted for
their 1981 pledges to the Com-
bined Jewish Appeal-United
i Israel Appeal-Israel Emergency
' Fund Campaign. This year's
Women's Campaign, which is
chaired by Maureen Rosewater,
conducted its phonethon on
March 31, April 1, 2 and 5. The
phonethon was conducted out of
space donated by Superior
Surgical of Pinellas County
located on Seminole Blvd. The
Women's telethon, chaired by
Sandy Silverman, Toni Rinde,
and Carol Nelson, ran from
March 31 to April 5. The purpose
of the telethon is to call every
person whose last gift ranged
from zero to $49.
"The more money we raise col-
lectively here, the more Wash-
ington will be willing to loan for
Israel defense", said Maureen
Rosewater. "But the other
number is equally important
the more people we have listed on
our rolls of contributors and as
active Jews interested in the
survival of Israel, the more
lobbying power in Washington
we have. Thus the phonethon is
of great importance in eliciting
the change from zero to some-
thing. Our biggest forces in
combating anti-Semitism and
helping Israel are solidarity in
numbers, both in money and in
people." stressed Mrs. Rose-
water. Mr. Saul Schechter 1961

added the hope that the receiver
of a telethon call would be cordial
and understand that the caller is

time, energy and dollars.
"Receive them cordially, as a
good friend, because they are,
yours and mine ..." he said. Mr.
Schechter continued by stating
that a clean-up telethon will be
held at a later date, at which time
all the Jews of Pinellas County
who have not had the opportuni-
ty to contribute to our campaign,
the greatest humanitarian cause
in modern Jewish history, will be
given the opportunity to con-
tribute, and by doing so declare
in unison with Jews throughout
the world that never again will
Jewish life be held cheaply, never
again will Jews forsake Jews in
need, never again will Jews stand
by idle as other Jews less for-
tunate than ourselves are made
to suffer solely because of their

authorities deny that he is alive.
"For 36 years now, the Soviet
Union has refused to account in a
credible manner for the
whereabouts and fate of Raoul
Wallenberg," Pell said. He noted
that in 1957 the Soviets finally
conceded that he had been taken
prisoner but claimed that he died
in 1947. "More recent reports
from former Soviet prisoners
indicate that Wallenberg may
still be alive today," Pell said.
"The U.S. owes a debt of
gratitude to Raoul Wallenberg,"
Pell declared. "Since his
humanitarian actions were
undertaken at the behest of our
government, it is appropriate
that we express our appreciation .
for his unprecedented courage on J

JWV Urges Federal Legislation to Control Handguns
Jewish War Veterans of the USA
believe the time has come to
enact strong federal legislation
on the indiscriminate sale of
handguns according to a state-
ment by National Commander
Irvin Steinberg of Miami Beach,
Steinberg expressed shock
over the assassination attempt
against President Reagan and
over the violence committed on
his Press Aide Jim Brady, on the
Secret Service Agent Timothy
McCarthy, and on the D.C.
Policeman Thomas Delehanty.
"While all Americans pray for
their speedy recovery, we must
find ways to end such senseless
violence across our land," he
Arguing against the notion
| that legislation to control hand-
guns would only remove these
dangerous weapons from the
hands of honest citizens, not
criminals, Steinberg asserted, "if
a man like James Hinckley. who
had previously been arrested for
illegal possession of firearms in
an airport, had to get a license to
buy his handguns and was fully
investigated before being issued
a permit, the recent tragedy
might have been averted."
Commander Steinberg further
noted that all the assassinations,
both attempted and realized,
against our national leaders, save
one the Oswald shooting of
Kennedy have been committed
with handguns. While other
types of guns are used for sport, a
handgun has a singular purpose
directed against human beings.
"Yes," Steinberg declared, "an
I individual has a Constitutional
right to bear arms. But just as a
person must show competence to
drive an automobile, so should an
individual have to show com-
petence to own a handgun."
State laws are ineffective,
according to Steinberg, as the re-
cent tragedy in the District of
Columbia shows. D.C. has very
strong gun control regulations
but there is no way to control
interstate traffic from states with
weak or non-existent legislation.
Steinberg concluded, "The
JWV asks again, as it has since
1975, for the U.S. Congress to
enact legislation to bring an end
to easy, unfettered access to fire-
arms. People with guns kill
people something can and
must be done to limit the avail-
ability of the weapons they use."

Jews have always chosen
freedom When we have been able
to win a struggle for release from
oppression, we have chosen to
make our way to our promised
land or to other lands which
respect and support our rights as
individuals and as a people.
When we have been hemmed in
by oppression, we have chosen to
fight back: no matter the odds,
no matter the consequences.
The first day of Passover also
coincides, as always, with the fall
of Masada. A major media event
early in April reminded us and
millions of our fellow Americans
of that tragic event twenty
centuries ago.
The lesson to be drawn from
what we viewed on our television
screens does not lie in the clash of
personalities and viewpoints we
saw in the course of the drama,
nor in the tragic choice at its
climax. Rather, it is contained in
the fiery Hebrew words ablaze at
the end words that express our
choice, our determination today:
Masada Shall Not Fall Again.
The Jewish choice is to serve as

For the past three, and four, and five years,
hundreds of campaign donors have been giving the
same ten dollars, the same hundred dollars, the same

the face of inflation, rising costs, and escalating
needs, the same contribution as last year is actually a

Joe Charles
When this writer first approached Joe Charles about a
Pinellas Profile, Joes response was typical of his unassuming
altitude. "Why me", he said. "What Have I done to warrant a
profile." Joe characteristically shuns publicity, while he gives
unselfishly of his time and energy to any organization that
requests his services.
Joes dedication to the survival and strength of the Jewish
people is a direct result of personal experience. Joe was an eye-
wii ncss to the upheaval and havoc caused by Hitler in pre-World
War 11 Europe. He was born and lived in Vienna, Austria until
he was IS years old. when his family recognized the dangerous
e\ ilfi being perpetrated throughout Europe by Hitler. Joe and
hi* sister escaped Austria, came to the United States and settled
in Indianapolis. Indiana. His parents fortunately got out in time
and made their way to Caracas. Venezuela and finally to the
United States, but the remainder of Joes family, aunts, uncles,
.iin) cousins, perished during the Holocaust.
Joe moved to New York City, met his wife Jeanne, and after
In- service in World War II, they moved to St. Petersburg. The

a strong and unified Jewish community. The United States

ly, not only in Jewish affairs, but whereever a minority is in-
volved so that we can fight bigotry and promote better under-
standing between people." The Jewish Federation, Joe believes,
serves a major function because it is the umbrella organization
and solicits cooperation and unity from the total community in
.in effort to strengthen and solidfy the Jewish people.
Among the organizations which have benefitted from Joes
commitment are B'nai B'rith, which he served as President for
I In if terms, and the Jewish War Veterans, of which he was
Commander three times. He is a state officer of the JWV and a
past president of the West Coast Council of B'nai B'rith. The

Special Report to
Pinellas County Community
Dear Friend:
The 1981 Combined Jewish
Appeal-United Israel Appeal
Campaign is now under way, and
the reports are most encouraging.
We can be proud of the positive
beginning we've made. Initial
gifts are 50 percent greater than
last year.
I must also report, however,
that all over the world, anti-
Semitism is on the rise, and our
fellow Jews from Florida, Israel,
and from Europer are in greater
need and greater danger than any
time since the Holocaust. KKK
hoodlums appear on national TV
in prime time to tirade against
Jews; a Freedom Medal is given
to the Saudi Arabian King who
has just called for a Holy War
against Israel; Neo-Nazis in
Germany threaten to kill Jews; in
the U.S., desecrations of Syna-
gogues occur more and more
It is, therefore, no longer a
igame; it is no longer a question of
whether to give it is a question
of how much to give! It cannot be
a question of commitment It
must be a question of how we
commit ourselves!
We are attempting to reach
every member of the Jewish
Community during the 1981
Campaign, to share, to educate,
and yes, to solicit.
For those who were not
reached this year, I suggest a
self-gift be sent with the enclosed
brief pledge card. Remember, this
is a sefl-solicitation, a must-
solicitation to insure our future
and the future of our children.
For only in unity and in strength
can we continue to feel safe and
I urge you most strongly to
join me in this solemn and vital

From the
For many people, including most Jews perhaps, the story of
Jewish Freedom is enveloped in miracle. It is indeed, but it is
definitely not the miracle of the wondrous crossing of the Red
Sea when the turbulent tides subsided at the moment Moses
smote the waters. Then as we confidently proceed with the
narrative, the pursuing Egyptians sank and the Israelites
crossed over dryshod and sang a song of triumph for the free-
dom they had achieved.
True the Biblical account tells about the abnormal experi-
ence, the remarkable event that miraculously culminated in
Israel's victory.
But I want to suggest that while this is an unusual account
that defies rational explanation, I contend that this was not
really the essence of the miracle. The real miracle was the
seemingly less supernatural explanation of what the Israelites
accomplished when they defied danger and fear and struggled
courageously to win freedom.
Some of our teachers explained that at first nobody wanted to
\ enture into the water. Everybody became terribly polite and
urged his fellows to plunge first into the sea. All resisted. Finally
one man decided to take the plunge. Others followed and then
the column moved forward resolutely. At first the waters rose
higher and higher. It was not until the waters reached up to the
nostrils and the men defiantly moved forward that the water
be tan to recede.
And here you have the real miracle the wonderful
triumph that indomitable will can wrest from even a seemingly
hopeless situation. Given faith in the Tightness^ of a cause,
confidence that somehow right must triumph and a readiness to
defy the elements, the Children of Israel finally triumphed. Now
this is the essence of the miracle.
This type of faith not only dries waters. It even moves
mountains. And this was the kind of faith that sustained the
Children of Israel in the course of their remarkable saga
throughout history-
I would like to go one step further and suggest that his type
of natural miracle that we tend to take for granted is actually the
true miracle. We tend to dismiss it because it is a daily oc-
currence and not a "miraculous" miracle.
We Jews will have to look to ourselves if we are to know real
freedom. That is the way God operates in our lives.
And at this Season of our Freedom we pray that freedom
will ring out for us and that cooperating with God, using the
resources He makes available to us, we will usher in an era of
peace and freedom, decency and righteousness for ourselves and
for all people.

Gauntlet on the Hill
AW ACS to Saudis?
Hardly' is Secretary of State Alexander Haig
home than the gauntlet has been thrown down on
Capitol Hill. Senators like California's Alan Cran-
ston and Michigan's Carl Levin are already letting it
be known that the AW ACS to Saudi Arabia are out
of the question.
It is sad that the issue will be debated in the
mishmash of traditional State Department
diplomacy, which dofts its cap to all things Arab and
holds its nose at all things Israeli.
For the issue of the AW ACS goes far beyond
Israel tragically far beyond the Saudis' capacity
to destroy Israel should the Senate consent to the
transfer of the AW ACS to them. At stake is the
same unrest in Saudi Arabia that toppled the Shah of
Iran and brought much sensitive and even secret
American I military technology into the hands of this ]
nation's enemies when the AyatoUah Khomeini took*
The fact is that the Saudi regime under King
Khalid may well suffer a similar fate. And then
what? We have only to recall the nearness of a
Russian trawler to Cape Canaveral on Sunday in the
obvious Russian bope of retrieving the jettisoned
Columbia's booster rockets within moments after the
world's first space shuttle took off.
The Russian thirst for American technology is
boundless. The AW ACS is one of this nation's most
advanced specimens of that technology. \
The issue is precisely here. It is far less an
Israeli issue, but we fear that it will be debated as
such in the days ahead.

doumi's visit last month as part
of its efforts to become "directly
acquainted with all points of view
by all parties concerned in the
Middle East Conflict."
The Jewish leaders' meeting
with Silverstrini was described as
"cordial." Thev discussed the
Christian Jewish dialogues, the
"question" of Jerusalem and the
Palestinian refugee problem.
THEY ALSO raised with the
Vatican official the "intense
political activity of Archbishop
(Hilarion) Capucci as an ex-
ponent of the PLO, an activity at
variance with the purely pastoral
duties to which the Holy See had
promised Capucci would be
limited after his release from
prison in 1977."
B'riths Washington-Maryland
regional office, said that the ADL
is "dismayed" by the Mayor's
remark and described it as
"particularly insensitive and in-
appropriate" when "overt anti-
Semitism is significantly in-
creasing in the Washington area
and throughout the country."
The ADL statements said,
"The Mayor's subsequent expla-

Alan Grip, Barry's press secre-
tary, said that Barry "is not
trying to say that whites don't

his perception is that had they

Haig was reported from
Rome as saying that his

Haig ended his Middle East

have requested from the U.S. At
the same time, correspondents
traveling with Haig reported that
the Secretary had stressed to the
Saudis that the U.S. would
ensure Israel's qualitative edge
over the Arab states militarily.
THIS WAS seen as an opening'
gambit in what is expected to be
a strong drive by the Reagan Ad-
ministration starting this week to
persuade Congress to support the
sale of the AWACS TO Saudi
. Arabia in addition to extra fuel/
tanks and air-to-air Sidewinder

Iran Jews Air Appeal
TEL AVIV (JTA) Radio Teheran has broadcast
a message from a group calling itself the "Jewish Union,"
appealing to Jews in Iran to hold only religious ob-
servances on Passover, according to Israel Radio
monitors. The group said that Jews throughout Iran
should not hold celebrations this Passover, in view of the
war between Iran and Iraq.
Instead, funds which would have been spent should
be donated for the good of war refugees, the broadcast
said. Only a small Jewish community is left in Iran,
following the emigration of many Jews since the fall of the
Chatter Box
Mike Gallant and Phil Wallace had more difficulty bringing
the Zamir Chorale from an engagement in West Palm Beach
than in their trip from New York. After appearing in concert
halls in Israel and the United States, this was the Chorale's first
trip to Florida, where they were enthusiastically received.
Among the sellout crowd enjoying the music were the Irv
Bernateina, Rosa Lews, Abe Katies, Larry Inrina and Jack
Goldbergs. The young ladies in the Chorale were concerned that
their bright red sun burns would clash with their purple blouses,
but they looked and sang beautifully. The message of one of
their Russian songs was that we should be afraid of no one but
Almighty G-d. How true!

Post 246 JWV
On Sunday. March 26 after the
monthly breakfast meeting, the
Abe Adar Post 246 Jewish War
Veterans and Auxiliary had as
their guest speaker Gerry Cole-
man. Sheriff of Pinellas County.
Sheriff Coleman has had a very
impressive career, rising through
the ranks of the St. Petersburg
Police Department, and thereby
having a thorough knowledge of
every phase of police procedure.
Sheriff Coleman was born in
New York and followed in the
footsteps of his father, who was a
police officer for 37 years. He
graduated from the FBI National
Academy in 1974, and was
elected Sheriff in 1980. In his
speech he stressed the fact that
I'inelLis County is number one on
the list in the country for the il-
legal entry of dope, and
although lacking sutticient hinds
and personnel, his staff is doing
their utmost to stem the tide
which menaces the health of this
After Sheriff Coleman's
speech, two members of the
JWV, Anthony Laurelli and
Felix DreihlSS, received Certifi-
cates of Merit from Commander
Ix-onard Greenberg for thtir
volunteer work at the Bay Pines
Veterans Hospital.
The monthly breakfast of the
Abe Adar Post 246 Jewish War
Veterans of U.S. and Auxiliary
held at the Jewish Community
Center in Elbow Lane North, St.
Petersburg, on Sunday April 12
was made more interesting by the
presence of State Attorney
James T. Russell who was intro-
duced by Chairman of Guest
Speakers, Morris Watnick.
Mr. Russell delivered a very
interesting and informative talk
on criminal activity and the lack
of space to house those convicted.
He took to task the Parole Board
system for freeing felons who
should have served their entire
sentence, and urged the audience
to write to their respective legis
latures to abolish the Parole
Mr. Russell, s native of St. Pe-
tersburg, graduated local
schools, and Stetson College of
Law, where he received his LLB
Degree; he served as Assistant
State Attorney from 1966 to 1969
at which time he was appointed
State Attorney by the Governor
of Florida. In 1980 he was elected
as State Attorney

donated by her and raffled off,
the proceeds to be used to
purchase Passover baskets for
the indigent families. Due to the
holidays, the usual monthly
breakfast was held in the middle
of the month instead of the last
Sunday, therefore the attendance
didn't come up to our expecta-
tions, and Greenberg generously
donated the required amount.
A very pleasant surprise con-
cluded a pleasant morning when
Commander Lenny Greenberg
presented a lovely plaque en-
scribed to both Mr. and Mrs.
Morris Watnick. This lovely
couple gave of themselves for
many years to the Abe Adar Post
and may they enjoy this award
for many years in good health.

Dayan Launches Election Drive
Former Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan said that he
saw no conflict between
continuing efforts to re-
solve the Israeli-Arab
dispute and the formation
of regional strategic
defenses against Soviet
interventionism in the
Middle East which is the
larger American concern.
Dayan. who announced that he
will run in the June 30 Knesset
elections at the head of a new
political party called Telem
I Movement for National
Renewal), also stressed that Is-
rael would play its role in regional
defense with or without a mutual
defense treaty with the U.S.
Appearing life from Tel Aviv
on the ABC-TV "Issues and
Answers" program. Dayan said
in reply to questions that he did
not think it would be too com-
plicated to coordinate the differ-
ent local countries together with
Israel to meet the Soviet threat
while seeking a solution to Arab-
Israeli issues, the largest of
which is the Palestinian problem.
"WE SHALLplay our role" in
the event that the Soviets at-
tempt to expand in the region
"by itself or through someone
Is*- Israel will fight for its in-
dependence with our forces." he
Dayan said, however, that he
considered the Reagan Ad-
ministrations intention to pro-
vide sophisticated weaponry to
Saudi Arabia to be a "wrong
step. I personally am totally
against it." he said. "They (the
Saudis) don't need it and can't
use it." He said he was concerned
that the Saudis might provide
the equipment to a third party to
attack Israel instead of using it
to defend themselves against th
Russians. He said the sanw
applied to the supply of so phisti
cated weapons to Saud Arabia by
West Germany.
Dayan said he favored an
Amercian presence in the Middle
Fast and that any Israeli govern-
ment would provide facilities.
Hut he was not in a position to
say what form the American
presence should take because he
was not acquainted" with that
ment would provite facilities. But '
he was not in a position to say
what form the American presence
should take because he was "not
acquainted" with that aspect.
HOWEVER, he strongly sup-

thought the force should have

'out 4.000 men. half of
vouM be supplied by the
S rid the rest by other
countries. He mentioned Canada
\ustralia and New Zealand ir
that connection.
He said, in reply to a question,
that if agreement is not reached
on a multi-national force by next
year's deadline, he would re-
commend that Israel not with-
draw from Sinai. "We must havt
a force to rely on. not just under-
takings by Egypt." he said.
precipitate a crisis with Egypt,
Dayan said he did not think it
would come to that. Because of
Israel's position, he predicted
that the Egyptians would reach
an agreement on the multi-
national force even if they were
not happy with all of its aspects.
He said that the Egyptian-Is-
raeli peace treaty had lived up to
his expectations, adding that he
hadn't "expected too much .
that we'd be kissing each other
twice a day." But, he observed.
"There are diplomatic relations,
free traffic ... I don't think even
after (Israel's) withdrawal is
completed and if (Anwar) Sadat
is replaced by another President.
I don't think he peace treaty will
be shaky. It will hold. It is a firm
Asked why he has returned to
politics after saying, when he
resigned as Foreign Minister in
October. 1979. that he would not
seek another term in the Knesset.
Dayan said he was motivated
mainly by the need to resolve the
Palestinian issue.
HE SAID two major planks in \
his new party's platform were "to
implement autonomy for the
Arabs without agreement, right \
away, which the present govern-
ment won't do. and not to allow
the Labor Party to withdraw
from some parts, ot' the West
Bank without a peace treaty."
That would be "a bad mistake,
he said.
He said he was aware that the
Arabs on the West Bank and
IGaza Strip "want much more.
They want total withdrawal and
a Palestinian state. But not able
o achieve this, they would like
very much that we let them
control their own life in their own
villages He said implementa-
tion of autonomy meant with-
drawal of the military ad
ministration from the territories
but not Israeli military forces.
Dayan also insisted that Israel
has the right to keep its settle-
ments on the West Bank "for
good, forever and ever." to ex-
pand existing settlements and
build new ones. "I don't think
t his is a major obstacle or a minor
obstacle" to peace with the
Arabs. "They realize we have to
live together, as in Jerusalem.
We are not after replacing them
or driving them away." Dayan
DAYAN SAID he did not
agree with Secretary of State
Alexander Haig's position that
the Soviet Union is behind all in-
ternational terrorist movements.
"I'm not sure Soviet Russia is
directly responsible, though the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization is being trained in
Soviet Russia." he said. He said
he thought the U.S. should define
terrorism and "try to stop i,
"*^"" ** *y touiT,
forbid it. '
In that connection he observed
that Lebanon would neW-
resolve its problems as long
armed terrorists are allowed 2
roam freely there. With respect tn I
Syria's presence, he said "I don, I
think we should try to takeover
Lebanon to push Syria back Bu
