Federation Combined Jewish
Appeal Campaign Chairman
Stanley Newmark and Health
Services Division Chairman Dr.
John Kinde have announced that
1984 campaign contributions
from physicians, dentists, op-
tometrists, podiatrists and other
health professionals in Pinellas
County are at an all-time high.
"We have already raised over
$120,000 from our health
professionals," said Newmark
and Rinde. "This is $8,000 more
than we raised all last year and
we still have many mnore people
to contact. At this rate, we
should end up with at least a
$30,000 increase over last year in
the Health Services Division
Stanley Newmark
which, thanks to the anonymous
benefactors who are matching
our increases, will result in an
actual addition of $60,000 to the
campaign. We need increases like
this if we are to meet the pressing
human needs of our fellow Jews."
The Combined Jewish Appeal
is the annual fundraising cam-
paign of the Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County on behalf of
Jewish needs here, in Israel and
around the world. The campaign
supports the United Jewish
Appeal as well as local agencies
and services, including the
Jewish Community Center, the
Jewish Day School and Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service.
Tribute Luncheon This Monday
more than a month to admit to
the offensive remark and finally
did so less than 48 hours before
the nation's first Presidential
primary.
Jackson, an ordained Baptist
minister, explained that "When
confronted by the charge, I
hesitated," to prevent a
disruption of his campaign. He
compared his struggle over
whether to admit or deny the
charge to Jacob's wrestling with
an angel.
"IT'S HUMAN to err, divine
to forgive," Jackson told his
audience. "I appeal to you
tonight as a Jewish community
to find yourself in the rainbow
coalition," he said referring to his
coalition of supporters both
Black and white." I categorically
deny that I am either anti-
Semitic or anti-Israel," Jackson
said. Meanwhile, Jackson has
refused to dissociate himself from
the remarks made by Louis
Farrakahn, described as the
minister of the Nation of Islam
who introduced Jackson last
Saturday night at a rally of
10,000 persons at the annual
Savior's Day event in Chicago.
Farrakahn told the rally that
there have been more than 100
threats against Jackson's life. "I
say to the Jewish people who
may not like our brother, when
you attack him you are attacking
the millions who are lining up
with him. You are attacking all of
i ;s ... If you harm this brother, I
warn you in the name of Allah,
this will be the last one you do
harm," news reports quoted
Farrakahn as saying.
QUESTIONED by reporters
before an appearance at New
Hampshire College to address a
forum on hunger, Jackson was
asked for his reaction to Farra-
kahn's remarks. He was quoted
as saying, "Ask Farrakahn about
his own introduction."

audience here that he
indeed made insulting

Inth but insisted that

br anti-Israel."

The Federation Women's Divi-
sion Tribute Luncheon will be
held this Monday, March 12, at
Spoto's Restaurant in Seminole,
according to Women's Division
Chairperson Elisa Greenberg.
The luncheon is open to all
contributors of $366 or more to
the 1984 Women's Division
campaign. Author Gerda Klein
will be the featured speaker at the
luncheon.
Gerda Klein was born in Bielitz
(Bilsko), Poland, where she lived
with her parents and brother at
the time the German armies
occupied Poland in 1939. She and
her family were all sent to
concentration camps. She alone
survived.
Her first book, All But My
Life, is a personal account of her
suffering and survival. Her
second book, The Blue Ron,
which made the Children's Books
Best Seller List, introduced one
"different" child to her peers as a
Elisa Greenberg
"Blue Rose" a child to be
tended, not cast aside. Her third
book (just published), Promise Of
A New Spring, is a gently
eloquent introduction to the
Holocaust, written for children.
Mrs. Klein lives in a suburb of
Buffalo with her husband. They
have three children and several
grandchildren. She writes a
weekly column, "Stories For
Young Readers," for the Buffalo
News, and is one of the founders
of The Blue Rose Foundation,
which hopes to provide a facility
in western New York for mentally
retarded young adults to farm,
care for animals and operate a pet
shop.
Mrs. Klein travels and speaks
throughout the country for many
different organizations.
Last minute reservations for
the Tribute Luncheon can be
made by calling the Federation
office at 446-1033.
Arens Says IDF Will Not Leave Southern Lebanon
" By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Israel Defense
Minister Moshe Arens has
made it clear that the
Israeli army would not
leave southern Lebanon
until there was a govern-
ment in Beirut that could
ensure the security of
Israel's northern border.
"As long as there is not a
Lebanese government that can
provide a credible commitment
that it will prevent terrorist
action against Israel from
southern Lebanon, Israel has no
choice but to keep its army
deployed in southern Lebanon,"

COMMUNITY CAMPAIGN RALLY
Wednesday Evening, May 2
Spotos Restaurant, Seminole
Arens said in an interview on
ABC-TV's "This Week with
David Brinkley."
"We have to protect the lives
and the safety of the citizens in
the northern part of Israel," the
Defense Miister stressed.
ARENS NOTED that
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization terrorists have been
infiltrating back into Lebanon,
some of them fighting alongside
the Druze in the Shouf moun-
tains. He said there have been
some rockets fired at Israel, but
they have been "few and far
between" and have not caused
any injuries.
Arens said the presence of the
Israeli army in south Lebanon
has prevented the type of shelling
that existed before Israel went
into Lebanon in June, 1962. He
added that Israel has warned the
Druze to prevent the PLO from
moving south.
Arens said that the withdrawal
of the U.S. Marines will not help
the government of President
Amin Gemayel, adding that the
past few weeks has shown that
maybe nothing could help
Gemayel, "so maybe it doesn't
really make a difference."
BUT HE warned that Syria
and the Soviet Union believe the
West Britain, France and
Italy, as well as the United
States do not have the
"staying power" and are not
willing to make the commitment
to see the Lebanese situation
through. He said if this is true, it
will be "only a question of time
until (Syrian President) Hafez
Assad and the Russians behind
him will win."
Arens said that if Syria does
gain control in Lebanon and
places a Syrian "stooge" in
Beirut it will then turn south
either against Israel or Jordan.
"I hope they know, I hope they
realize that Israel has the staying
power. We are in the area to stay
. .. We have the perseverance,
we have the stamina, we have
strength to beat anyone who tries
to attack us," Arens warned.

Where Your CJA Dollars Go
Package Program Alleviates Rigors of Winter
ByTEDFEDER
Country Director, Rumania
"Rumania is undergoing a
hard, cold winter. Lines for food
continue to form early in the
morning. In the open air market
there are some apples, very
limited amounts of carrots, beets,
potatoes and onions, and not
much else. Our packages are no
longer supplementary but a basic
part of the diet, and our priority
has become to get food to those
who need it most as fast as
possible. We have moved up
distribution of our packages to
coincide with the worst rigors of
the winter. After these supplies
have been used up we will assess
what we have left in our budget
for the summer months.
"The January parcel included
five cans of sardines, one unit of
cheese, three packages of
biscuits, 24 eggs, sugar compote,
jam, noodles, rice, honey, soap,
powdered soup. The February
parcel will contain the same, but
with additional eggs and three
cans of meat (900 gr.). Approx-
imately 4,800 packages will be
distributed monthly over the
next five months.
"When invited to a special
children's celebration of the
Festival of Tu B'Shvat in the
synagogue, I thought it only
right to bring a present from
JDC, I commandeered a car to
take me to the Intercontinental
Hotel 'dollar shop' where I
bought 60 bars of Swiss
Toblerone chocolate and rushed
back to the synagogue just in
time to enter as an honored
guest. The choir of about 50
children aged from four to 14 was
joined by about 75 spectators.
The JDC brings new hope to
Rumania's Jewish elderly
through its far reaching health,
social and welfare programs.
"As always, the children sang
a dozen songs in Hebrew, Yiddish
and Rumanian about Tu B'Shvat
and Israel. They listened respect-
fully to the speeches, keeping
their eyes on the big boxes of
gifts which would be presently
theirs. There were three gifts, one
a cellophane bag with an orange,
an apple and a few nuts from the
Community. The second cello-
phane bag, containing dried fruit
and nuts from Israel, was a gift
from the Israeli ambassador,
while the third gift was the bar of
Toblerone chocolate.
Jewish Day School Scholarships
The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School is committed to
providing an excellent educa-
tional program for qualified chil-
dren, regardless of the families'
ability to pay full tuition.
Currently one-quarter of the
Jewish Day School families
receive some scholarship aid. As
the school's student population
and tuition continue to increase,
the need for scholarship assis-
tance will also grow.
To meet the growing need for
scholarships, the school's Board
of Directors has established two
levels of scholarship gifts for the
school. Gifts of $2,000 and $1,000
will be recognized as full and half
scholarships, respectively.
Scholarship donors will be appro-
priately recognized by the Pinel-
las County Jewish Day School.
The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School is affiliated with the
Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools and is a member of
the Solomon Schechter Day
School Association.
The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School is a recipient agency
of the Combined Jewish Appeal
of the Pinellas County Jewish
Federation.

"In the Rosen Home electricity
is cut for two or three hours in the
morning to save energy and the
institution is striving to maintain
standards. The meals are
nutritious and varied. The staff
took great pride in the fact that a
patient with bed sores had been
cured while under their charge.
She had been transferred to the
Home from a prestigious
geriatric clinic.
"We have expanded the
physiotherapy program by the
purchase of a very modestly
priced ultrasonic diathermy
machine which has been very
useful in treating the various
aches and pains which beset our
patients. I have put the Rosen
Home in contact with the
Cantonal Geriatric Hospital in
Geneva so that they can receive
the most up-to-date literature on
research being carried out there.
"The community does its best
to keep the people in the Home
busy with recreational activities.
They were given a television set
with a video cassette player. I
was able to bring them 'GoIda,'
and 'The Life of Horowitz.' On
my next trip I hope to bring 'La
Traviata,' 'Fidelio,' and 'The
Tales of Hoffman.' Artists who
occasionally visit from the
Jewish Theater or groups are
sent out by bus to attend special
performances. During my stay
the community was able to
prevail on the Rumanian army
'USO Entertainment Unit' to put
on a show at the Rosen Home.
There were 14 actors, singers and
dancers, and the show lasted for
two hours. It might not have had
Jewish content, but the old
people loved it.
"For once I visited the Rosen
Home on a Friday instead of a
Sunday. As I want from one floor
to another, I was puzzled by a
box of sand about three feet by
two feet that I saw on each floor.
It turned out the boxes were used
each Friday by over 100 of the
women in the Rosen Home who
put their candles there for the
Sabbath blessing.
The Rosen Home had approx-
imately 200 inhabitants in
January, 1983. In the course of
1982 there were 62 deaths.
Replacements kept the total high
and 1984 began with 195.
"I do not like to think what
would have happened had we not
decided to establish an old age
home system for Rumania's
aged. Here at the very least these
elderly Holocaust survivors, who
have suffered so much in their
lives, are given a chance to finish
their years loved and with
dignity."
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Agency receives
funds from monies raised in the
annual Combined Jewish Appeal
campaigns.

Henry Kissinger To Speak At
USF in The Sun Dome Mar. 13
Former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger will speak at the
University of South Florida at 8
p.m. Tuesday, March 13 in the
Sun Dome. His speech will be
titled "An Evening With Henry
Kissinger."
Dr. Kissinger served as
Secretary of State from Sep-

during the Nixon and Ford
administrations. He also served
as Assistant to the President for
National Security Affairs from

Begin Rejects Proposal
He Sign Declaration
JERUSALEM (JTA) Former Premier
Menachem Begin Sunday rejected a proposal that he add
his signature to Israel's Declaration of Independence. The
proposal was raised by Deputy Housing Minister Moshe
Katzav in a letter to Premier Yitzhak Shamir.
KATZAV SAID that Begin was denied the privilege
of signing the Declaration in 1948 because the Labor
establishment was opposed to the Irgun, which Begin had
led during the pre-State days. Reacting to the proposal,
Begin told Maariv: "One cannot add a signature
retrospectively. Those who signed, signed. Those who
didn't sign, didn't sign."
Begin said the proposal surprised him. He said that
had Katzav consulted him in advance, he would have
asked him not to raise it.
From the Rabbis Desk

By RABBI
MORRIS KOBRINETZ
Rabbi Emeritus,
Congregation Beth Sholom
"Remember to keep the Sab-
bath Day Holy. You have six
"days to labour. But the seventh
' day is a Sabbath of the Lord your
God."
In the modern world we at
times think that because we do
not worship idols of wood and
stone we have overcome idolatry.
But the essence of idolatry, as
Eric Fromm writes, "is not the
worship of this or that particular
idol, but is a human attitude."
He means the attitude of cen-
tering one's life around things,
instead of living only for the best
and highest, which is God.
We can understand another
reason why the Lord God made
His Sabbath a law. He asks us to
rest from our labors on the
"s seventh day because He wants to
protect us from the misery of idol
worship. He commands us to
take shelter from the dash and
clatter of the weekdays so that
we may meditate upon matters of
the "soul." He gives us the law of
the Sabbath, so that, by having a
special time to reflect upon what
is true, we may be saved from
what is false.
The statement of this law is the
fourth commandment, recorded
yln both Exodus and Ueute-
* ronomy. This proclamation helps
us to see that the Sabbath day
aims to bring wholeness to life.
In Exodus 20 the command-
ment urges the keeping of the
Sabbath because "in six days the
Lord made heaven and earth, the
sea, and all that is in them, and
on the seventh day He rested."
Therefore, God Blessed the Sab-
bath Day and declared it Holy.
God has made the Sabbath to
memorialize His creation, and
asks us to share it with Him.
God invites us to share a holi-
day with Him, giving us each
week to cheer our hearts. We turn
to the question what the Sabbath
4sks us to be. It asks us to be
friends with God us He is friends
with us.
The Exodus commandment is
that purpose of the Sabbath
holiday to celebrate the Creation.
The day reminds us that we are
partners with God; having given
us a world. And because the
Sabbath is a day of "rest," we
.hwyp limp to thinlr nur nurtiuw.
ship with God and to orient our-
selves "anew" toward the true
center of our existence.
In Deuteronomy, God's de-
liverance of His people from
Egyptian bondage is emphasized
as a reason for Sabbath-keeping.
And for that reason the Lord
your God commanded you to
keep the Sabbath Day.
The Sabbath is more than a
day to cheer our hearts, it is also
a day to remember our duty.
What does the Sabbath ask you
to be?
1. You share with the Creator
that the Sabbath asks you to
participate with God the building
of a world.
2. You share with the Deliverer
that the Sabbath asks you to
participate with God in the con-
quering of evil.
3. The Sabbath asks you to be
obedient to God, the truest,
highest Authority in the uni-
verse.
The mercy of this God has
made the keeping of His Sabbath
a "law." It makes us stop and see
what true life really is.

National Survey Dramatizes Importance of
Endowment Development To Federations
From TOP Jewish Foundation, Inc.
The annual Council of Jewish
Federations' survey on endow-
ment development has just been
published. The survey details
endowment development for the
67 Federations nationwide that
have endowment and planned
gift development programs. The
figures are not only impressive,
they are dramatic.
The following table shows the
history of endowment develop-
ment since 1975, which was the
first year that statistics were
compiled.
remaining $26.3 million went to
non-Jewish beneficiaries, such as
Vocal symphonies, hospitals,
colleges and universities and
other unspecified non-profit
organizations. What importance
are these national figures to the
endowment development efforts
in Tampa, Orlando and Pinellas
County?
First, these figures tell our
Federation and community lead-
ers that endowment development
is becoming the second most
important source of Jewish
Second, theae figures tell our
leadership that endowment
development is by its nature a
slow process. Many of the
millions of dollars that came in
over the years have developed
through bequests from wills,
being named as beneficiary in a
life insurance policy or having a
remainder interest in a trust
mature. However, a significant
portion of these annual additions
also come through current gifts
of real estate, closely held
business interests or other capital
assets. Because the donor can do

It is interesting to note the
breakdown of the $119.6 million
in grants made during the 1982-
83 reporting period: $36 million
went to Federation annual
campaign; $12.9 million went to
Federations for general purposes;
$27.5 million went to Federation
affiliated agencies; $2.7 million
went to other Federation bene-
ficiaries; $14.2 million went to
other Jewish beneficiaries. The

annual campaign. In order to
have a well balanced and growth
oriented fund raising program,
endowment gift development
must be promoted and not
viewed as an expendable item in
the Federation's budget. Rather
it should be viewed as an im-
portant investment for
discovering new and increased
revenue sources.

some income tax, gift tax and
estate tax planning, this type of
giving necessitates education and
an awareness on the part of the
leadership of how to spot an
endowment gift opportunity.
Finally, these statistics say
something else. They say that if
the community leadership and
the communal professionals are
creative in their overall approach
to fund development, more
dollars will be attracted into the
ewish communities. Community
tanning can become a reality,
rather than just a handful of
dreams. Agencies can loosen
their belts rather than tighten
them and offer more and better
programs for the youth, elderly
and all those in between. By
taking advantage of tax op-
portunities for current en-
dowment giving and encouraging
deferred giving, we will build for
a better tomorrow.

display included Judaic treasures
from the State Jewish Museum in

years and more. We were all most
impressed and came away with a
better understanding and appre-
ciation for the heritage and
history of this Jewish culture.
After the tour we boarded our
bus again for the trip to Lake
Wales where we dined at the
beautiful Black Forest Restau-
rant and then returned to the

next trip?
PLAYGROUP
Greetings from Playgroup! We
would like to welcome Lindsay
Geffon to our group. She is the
newest member of the group.
Play group's enrollment is
really climbing. There are 13 chil-
dren attending on Monday, 12
children on Wednesday, while
Tuesday and Friday have six and
Thursday has seven. There is still
a lot of room for new members on
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
The free one day visit is still in
effect and is open to children
between the ages of two and three
years old.
The children were very busy
this week creating their own
'Koolaid-flavored" Playdough.
They made cherry, grape, orange
and punch-flavored Playdough
and had lots of fun mixing it with
their hands. Each child has his
own container with his own Play-
dough that he may keep until the
end of the school year.
During the first week of
March, the children will be
preparing for Purim. They will
hear the Story of Purim and
make paper bag puppets and
costumes representing the
characters related to Purim. They
will also be able to wear their
costumes if they choose to attend
the Purim Carnival which will be
held here on Sunday, March 11,
from 1-4 p.m. Hope to see you
there.

Suncoaet Section
The missing Children's
act of 1982 promoted a new
awareness of a vast heart
wrenching problem of children
that become victims of foul play
and cannot be identified. U.S.
Senator Paula Hawkins has
targeted six communities in the
United States to develop a model
plan to address the concern for
child safety. The goal is to
develop activities relating to
child safety and to create public
awareness of the need for child
safety. National Council of
Jewish Women, Suncoast Section
is participating in a countywide
finger-printing program. On Feb.
6, several hundred children were
fingerprinted in five pre-school
day care centers throughout
Pinellas County with parents'
consent. NCJW women were
there helping the Juvenile
Welfare Board as requested. As
this project progresses, acti-
vities, photographs, body
characteristics charts and dental
charts will be made available.
Fingerprinting will continue each
Monday and Wednesday with
NCJW's help until all the city's
preschools have been visited.

WE SUPPORT
WALTER MONDALE
l >+>
For almost 20 years in the Senate and
as Vice-President Fritz Mondale has
been a vocal and staunch supporter
of the State of Israel.
As President he would move the
U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, Israel's
eternal capital.
As President he has pledged to
sharpen America's competitive edge
so that all of our children may share
in a better tomorrow. He will reduce
the budget deficit by more than half
during his first term. He will launch
an ambitious program to reinvest in
education, science, and training.
As President he will once again
make the White House a beacon of
compassion for all who seek a fair so-
ciety. Most of his life Walter Mondale
has fought for healthy neighbor-
hoods and family, for civil rights and
equal rights.
As President he will take charge of
our foreign policy using America's
great strength to build hope for a se-
cure future, not to destroy it.
And as President he will bring to
the Presidency the sound under-
standing of the
Middle East that has been absent
during this administration. He be-
lieves and his actions demonstrate
that a strong U.S.-lsrael relationship
is indispensable. He says, "America
must never waver from its historic
commitment to Israel. It is the only
stable democracy in a volatile region,
and its borders must always remain
secure."
