Agency programs funded by
the State which are run by our
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service include homemaker
services to the disabled and aged
of Pinellas and Pasco Counties
and residential and rehabilitative
services for seniors from the

The governor has also been
instrumental in his recent
support of Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service's efforts at
providing a new level of com-
munity residential care for 120
seniors and disabled who require
minimal medical care as well as
household and personal
assistance in order to avoid
nursing home placement. In
addition to support received from
our governor, this newest resi-
dential concept has considerable
support from both the State
Senate and State House of
Representatives. Of invaluable
assistance and support for the
concept has also been received
from the Florida Association of
Jewish Federations in efforts to
procure funding. The idea is
hailed as important to the needs
of the Jewish and general com-
munity. Also expected to attend

Arens Declares Saudis Don't

Minister Moshe Arens
maintains that Saudi
Arabia already has a
"very effective" defense
system and does not need
the 400 Stinger anti-
aircraft missiles which
President Reagan sent
them last week.
Arens made this assertion in
commenting to reporters after a
45-minute meeting with Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger at
the Pentagon. He noted that

Arens Again Denies Israel
Selling Arms Parts to Iran
American equipment, they don t
relations between the U.S. and
Israel "have never been better
than they are today."
THE TWO defense chiefs
discussed issues on which the two
countries agree and a few on
which they disagree, including
the Stinger sale. "I didn't ask for
any guarantees" on the Stingers,
Arens said.
He conceded that the "Saudis
have a problem" in the Persian
Gulf but said they have "a very
effective system" with the F-15
fighters, which he called the
"best aircraft in the world," and
the long-range Hawk surface-to-
air missiles. The shoulder-fired
Stinger has a range of three
miles, and the State Department
could not say how it would be
deployed to protect Gulf
shipping. The Israelis have
expressed concern that the
Saudis would use the weapons
against them or turn the mobile
missiles over to the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
In answering questions in
Hebrew from Israeli radio and
television reporters, Arens denied
that his visit here is connected
with the upcoming Knesset
elections. He was guest of honor
in the annual Salute to Israel
Parade in New York City
(JTA) Israeli Defense

Arens, answering questions
from reporters at a press confer-
ence, also denied that there are
any flights between Israel and
Tehran carrying weapons to Iran
directly or through a third
country. He repeated the denial
when asked the same question in
Hebrew by Israeli reporters.
ARENS, who met for 45
minutes earlier with Defense Sec-
retary Caspar Weinberger at the
Pentagon, said he expressed
Israel's opposition to President
Reagan's decision to send 400
Stinger anti-aircraft missiles to
Saudi Arabia.
"Our concern is that these mis-
siles could fall in the hands of ter-
rorist groups," he explained. He
said Israel feared the terrorists
would use the easily affordable
weapon against civilian aircraft,
and this "could be a danger to us,
but not only to us."
But Arens also stressed that in
the "escalating" situation in the
Persian Gulf in which ships are
under attack from Iran and Iraq
the shoulder fired Stinger would
not be effective, since its range is
only three miles.
THE ISRAELI official sug-
gested that the Saudis will not be
"effective" in defending the Gulf
as the U.S. is counting on them
to do. He noted that the Iran-
Iraq war has been going on for
nearly four years, and while the
Saudis have a great deal of
have the "capability, the desire
or maybe the motivation" to use
Arens, however, ruled out any
Israeli military involvement in
the Gulf. This is "not at all being
considered," he said.
In another matter, Arens said
that while he was on the scene
April 13 when Israeli troops
killed two Palestinian bus hijack-
ers, and captured two others, he
did not know that the two cap-
tured Palestinians had been
beaten to death.
"I WAS in the area during the
entire night while the bus and
passengers were held hostage,"
he said. "I was in the area when
the bus was taken over by the
Israeli armed forces, and I left
the area thereafter." He added
that just before he left he told re-
porters that two Palestinians had
been killed and two captured.

GRTS Program Touches j)r< Shrager Honored By Gulf Coast]
Jewish Community jewish Family Service at Annual Meei
Judith, now 75 years old, was
born in July 1909 in Auburn,
Maine. Adopted at a young age,
Judith was then raised by her
grandmother. Her childhood was
not extraordinary. She completed
high school and later worked in 5
and 10 cent stores and dabbled in
photography. Her attraction and
ability to work with and care for
animals was realized at an early
Upon marrying, Judith joined
her husband in The Shrine Circus
where they had a sea lion act.
After an adventuress life of
traveling worldwide with her
husband and The Shrine Circus,
Judith found herself alone, broke
and with no place to live. That
was the beginning of a string oi"
events in the following years that
eventually led Judy to Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service and the
GRTS Program.
In 1959, Judith's marriage
ended. For some time after that
Judith tried to make a life for
herself in Tarpon Springs.
However, due to the loss of her
trailer in a fire, with no job to
support herself, and with serious
medical problems, she needed
help from outside sources. It is
reported that after several
attempts to obtain assitance,
Judith was sent to Chatta-
hoochee State Mental Hospital.
During her stay in Chatta-
hoochee, a Rabbi from Talla-
hassee became interested in
Judith's case. Through efforts by
the Rabbi on Judith's behalf,
Judith was discharged from the
State hospital to a nursing home
in St. Petersburg. There she
remained for three months and
then was transferred to another
nursing home in St. Petersburg.
After being placed in a third
nursing home. Rabbi Susskind of
St. Petersburg began to assist
Judith and act on her behalf. In
the years following, Judith lived
with friends and occasionally on
her own. She did volunteer work
when possible; however, due to
her deteriorating state, Judith
was in need of assistance from
community support programs.
Twice follwing her stay in
Chattahoochee, Judith required
psychiatric care in local
hospitals. In August 1981,
Judith was referred to the
Pinellas Geriatric Residential
Treatment System of Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service for place-
ment in their program. GRTS, a
psychosocial program geared to
assist the elderly population who
have a psychiatric history, saw
that Judith could benefit from
the program. It has been nearly
three years since Judith came to
the GRTS program and during
that time she has done wonder-
Judith currently resides in the
third level of the program which
indicates her abilities and
motivation to live and go on are
present. When asked about her
current life situation in the GRTS
Program, Judith states, "It's the
most wonderful place I've ever
been. They do wonderful things
for people."
Perhaps it is unusual for an
individual to share as much
personal information for a news-
paper article as Judith has.
Judith explained that she did so
so that the Jewish community
could be educated regarding
important programs and how
they affect the lives of those who
need them in time of crisis.

Never a day goes by that his

Never waiting to be asked,
always mindful that his demands

with "foot dragging" or perhaps
opposition, Dr. Shrager never
falters in obtaining help for the
suffering in our community.

Immigration Judge Orders
Expulsion of Ukrainian
CLEVELAND (JTA) A U.S. Immigration
Court judge has ordered the expulsion of John
Demjanjuk, a Ukrainian-born retired auto worker whose
U.S. citizenship was revoked in 1981 after he was found
guilty of having lied about his collaboration with the
Nazis when he entered the U.S. 30 years earlier.
DEMJANJUK, who claimed when he came to the
U.S. in 1951 that he had been a draftee in the German
army during World War II, was identified as a former
guard at the Treblinka death camp where he was
involved in the torture and death of thousands of Jews.
His brutality caused him to be known as "Ivan the
Terrible" among camp inmates.
Judge Adolph Angelelli ordered Demjanjuk to leave
the U.S. voluntarily within 30 days or face deportation
to the Soviet Union. The order, issued on May 23, was
made public last week. Demjanjuk's lawyer, Mark
O'Connor, said the order would be appealed.
Immigration Service officials are proceeding in Federal

Israel's Aircraft Industries
Will Produce F-15 Fuel Tanks
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Defense
establishment's Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) has
completed manufacture of a series of special fuel tanks
for F-15 fighters in use with the U.S. Air Force,
designed to increase the plane's internal fuel capacity
by 70 percent.
IAI BUILT 50 SETS of the tanks for the American
manufacturer of F-15s, McDonnell-Douglas, under a $30
million deal as part of an agreement whereby the U.S.
orders parts in Israel to reciprocate for Israeli purchases
in the U.S.
Unlike conventional extra fuel tanks which are
placed under the wings of aircraft, the conformal tanks,
which are also produced in the U.S., are attached to the
plane's fuselage. They are specially contoured to
prevent additional drag at subsonic speeds and create
far less drag at supersonic speeds than the conventional
under-wing external tanks.

Muslim leader Louis
Farrakhan's recent threats
against Jews and a black
reporter and his praise of
Adolf Hitler are only the
latest incidents in his 20-
year record of racism,
anti-Semitism and
intimidation, acording to a
report issued here by the
Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith.
The report, which cited two
earlier threats against black
newsmen, was presented to the
League's National Commission
at its annual policvmakin?
meeting at the Grand Hyatt
FARRAKHAN, 51, has for
two decades been a leader of the
American Black Muslim move-
ment. When the movement,
known as the Nation of Islam,
split into two factions some six
years ago, Farrakhan kept the
original name for the smaller of
the factions, which today has a
reported 5,000 to 10.000
adherents nationwide. The other
faction, called the American
Muslim Mission, has a reported
100,000 followers and is headed
by Wallace Dean Muhammad.
Farrakhan was little known
outside of the black community
until his controversial involve-
ment in Rev. Jesse Jackson's
Presidential primary campaign
earlier this year, when his state-
ments containing anti-Semitism,
black racism and threats brought
him nationwide attention.
Seymour D. Reich, head of
ADL's national Civil Rights
Committee, said Farrakhan's
public utterances are of concern
to all Americans "because of the
dangers of the dangers to society
when bigotry and racism are
injected into the political
CITING Farrakhan's death
threat in March against Wash-
ington Post newsman Milton
Coleman for reporting Rev.
Jackson's "Hymie" remarks
about Jews, the League's report
gave these accounts of the
previous incidents of intimida-
tion of black reporters by the
Nation of Islam.
In 1965. Ben Holman, who had
written an expose of the Black
Muslim movement for the
Chicago Daily News, was
castigated in a speech by
"Minister Louis X." and then
threatened by participants at the
Black Muslim convention in
Chicago amidst cries of "Uncle
Tom" and "Kill him." "Louis X"
was the name then used by
The other incident involved
Paul Delaney, now deputy
national editor of the New York
Times, who became a target of
the Nation of Islam in the early
1970's when he was threatened in
the Black Muslim's newspaper
after writing a series of articles
on the group for the Times.
The ADL report included the
following as examples of
Farrakhan's hostility to Jews
and Israel.
DURING 1972 and 1973, a
bookshop run by the Nation of
Islam carried the long discred-
ited, anti-Semitic diatribe known
as "The Protocols of the Elders of
Zion" and an equally anti-Semitic
book titled "A History of Jewish
Crimes." published in Pakistan.
During the 1970's, according to
ADL, anti-Semitic and anti-
Israel propaganda was common-
place in the Nation of Islam
Muhammad Speaks publication.
In 1972, for example, an article
tried to justify the murder of 11
Israeli athletes that year at the
Munich Olympics, claiming that
they represented an "oppressive"
And Separatism
society that "cannot be regarded
as innocent."
In recent months, the report
stated, Farrakhan has:
Described Jews as "enemies"
of Rev. Jackson;
Made several allegations
about Jewish "control" of the
Told Jews that unless they
accepted Jesus, "then maybe the
angel of death will stop at your
door and kill the firstborn out of
your house."
FARRAKHAN'S attacks on
Jews and the State of Israel,
ADL said, should be viewed
against the background of Nation
of Islam links to Arab nations
Khaddafi's Libya in particular -
and the Palestine Liberation
The ADL report said Nation of
I slam ties to Libya go back more
than 10 years when Muhammad
Speaks revealed that Libya had
extended a loan of $2.9 million to
the organization. Only last year,
the Nation of Islam sent two
representatives to a conference in
Libya organized by President
Khaddafi. In February of this
year, Farrakhan, himself, in a
speech at the University of
California at Los Angeles, justi-
fied PLO terrorist activities.
Farrakhan's long record of
espousing violence and extrem-
ism culminated earlier this year
in attempts to intimidate the
black and white communities. In
addition to issuing threats
against Washington Post
reporter Coleman and American
Jews, Farrakhan declared in an
article in the February issue of
the magazine Essence:
"If America allows anything to
happen" (to Rev. Jackson) .
the covenant between black
America and this government
will be broken forever. That is
why white people ought to think '
carefully about how this brother
is handled. America must
remember that with the Armed
Forces full of young black
soldiers, the threat of rebellion
. .could become reality."
Farrakhan lashed out at black
leaders who do not share his
point of view. "Every (black)
leader," he was quoted as saying
in the press, "should be held
accountable at the cost of his or
her life. Death should be the
penalty for traitorous activity."
In April, the ADL report
noted, Farrakhan tried to justify
his threats against Coleman by
claiming that the implied 'death
sentence" he had pronounced on
him would only be carried out
under the jurisdiction of a future
black state guided by Islamic
law. "When divine law is
established," he said, "and our
nation is formed out of that law,
then these traitorous acts will be
punished by death."
At the philosophical core of
Farrakhan's Nation of Islam
group is separation of blacks and
whites and openly-expressed
hatred of the white race. In
March of this year, Farrkhan, in
a radio broadcast, told his
listeners that integration is a
"hypocritical trick used by white
people to deceive black people
into making us believe that our
400-year-old enemy had all of a
sudden become our friend." In
the same speech, he repeated the
Nation of Islam's oft-stated call '
for a separate black state.
GCFS Assists Israel Bound Students
Young students of Pinellas
County frequently turn to Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service for
assistance in planning for their
continuing education. These
high-school and college students
are somewhat unique, however,
for they are hoping to continue
their education in Israel. They
have made application to Youth
Aliyah and other such agencies
for admission to a school or
program in Israel. They are
advised by the agency that part
of their application must be an
evaluative report from a social
worker or psychologist. The
agency wants information about
the prospective student's family
relationships, the students
motivation for making the
application, his or her emotional
stability, maturity and other
factors that would assist in
determining whether this is an
appropriate plan for the student.
Interviews are held with the
student and the student's
parents and a report is sent to the
requesting agency.
Shirley Serbell
Our experience has shown that
these are intelligent, highly
motivated young people with an
unusually strong emotional tie to
Israel. Many of them have family
in Israel, have spent time there
and feel a strong urge to return
there. We are pleased to meet
with and assist these fine young
students and hope they will have
the opportunity to develop their
potential for making a positive
contribution to Jewish life

TOP Jewish Foundation To Sponsor
Real Estate Seminar
The TOP Jewish Foundation,
endowment and planned gifts
development arm of the Jewish
Federation of Tampa, Orlando
and Pinellas County, will be
sponsoring a special program for
real estate agents, brokers and
developers. The program will
focus on disposing of real estate
more creatively through
charitable giving. The presenta-
tion will focus on such topics as
tax and cash flow benefits, gifts
or mortgaged property, giving a
remainder interest in a personal
residence or farm and other
topics of interest to both the real
estate professional and his-her
"Over the past few years we
have tried to educate the tax
planning professionals in the
community to the unique benefits
of endowment and planned
giving for their clients," said Joel
Breitstein, Charitable Tax Plan-
ning and Endowment Develop-
ment consultant to the three
communities. "Real estate plays
a very important part in our
program. It is important for the
real estate professionals and
those who may only be casually
into real estate for investment to
appreciate how everyone can
come out a winner through a gift
of appreciated property to a
charitable organization."
One thing that makes this
program special, according to the
program planners, is that it will
bring together Jewish agents,
brokers and developers from both
sides of the Bay, since the
program is a joint project of the
Tampa and Pinellas Endowment
Joel Breitstein
Fund Boards. A side benefit of
this joint program is the net-
working that can develop. The
seminar will be held Tuesday,
June 26, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at
the Atrium, 2413 Bayshore Blvd.
in Tampa. Wine and cheese will
be served. This is purely an
educational program and there
will be no solicitation of funds.
Anyone who is a casual investor
or an agent, broker or developer
is cordially invited. A panel
consisting of Les Bamett, tax
attorney from Tampa, Bruce
Bokor, tax attorney from Clear-
water; and Joel Breitstein,
attorney and Charitable Tax
Planning and Endowment
Development Consultant will
present the program.

Committee. Committee members
included; Senator Childers, Palm
Beach and Hendry Counties;
Senator Crawford, Polk, Desoto,
Okeechobee and Highland
Counties; Senator Margolis,
Dade County; Senator Rehm,

Vogt, Brevard County.
Michael Bernstein joined Mr.
Elliot Stem from Douglas
Gardens Jewish Nursing Home
in Miami as speakers discussing
the importance of meaningful
community alternatives to help
elderly of the Jewish and general

Federation Delegation Attends
Workshop in Tallahassee
Members of the Government
.Affairs Committee joined with
other members of the Florida
Association of Jewish Federa-
tions in attending a legislative
workshop held recently in Talla-
hassee. The Government Affairs
Committee is a subcommittee of
the Community Relations Com-
mittee of the Jewish Federation
of Pinellas County and is chaired
by Ben Bush of St. Petersburg.
A highlight of the day occurred
during the Senate session, when
State Senator Peter Weinstein of
^ Coral Springs introduced a reso-
lution commemorating the Holo-
caust. The resolution was iden-
tical to one passed by the Florida
House of Representatives the
previous day. State Senators
Jack Gordon (Miami) and Pat
Frank (Tampa) delivered moving
speeches of support. Ten
members of the delegation repre-
senting the Florida Association
of Jewish Federations, led by
Chairman Jules Arkin, were es-
' corted to the podium to receive
copies of the Senate resolution.
The remainder of the delegation
reviewed the proceedings from
the gallery. The ceremony was
later broadcast state-wide on
"Today In The Legislature" on
Public television.
After the Senate session, over
75 legislators, aides, HRS
officials and human service
lobbyists joined with represen-
tatives from ten communities
representing Federations from
around the state for a luncheon in
the Capitol.
The legislators were unani-
_ mously impressed with the
caliber of community leadership,
who devoted their time and
energy to go to Tallahassee to
voice their concerns on behalf of
the Jewish community.

were Ben Bush, Harry Green.

A resolution urging the people of Florida
to |oin in commemorating the Holocaust.
WHEREAS, in the entire history of humankind, there has been no greater
violation of human rights than the Holocuast perpetrated by Nan
Germany, and
WHEREAS, the horror of genocide began for the Jewish people with
Adolf Hitler's rise to power in Germany in 1933, beginning with the
burning of books written by Jewish authors and the establishment of the
concentration camp at Dachau, escalating by 1938 to the burning of
synagogues and the pillaging of Jewish shops and businesses throughout
Germany, and further escalating by 1938 and 1939 to large scale killing as
German Jews were imprisoned and Jews living in conquered Eastern
Europe were forced into labor camps and sealed into ghettos, and
WHEREAS, the Holocaust has become a reminder to all men and
women who cherish liberty and justice that they should never be
complacent in that liberty or secure in that justice, and a reminder that
they must always honor the commitment to fight new forms of tyranny
lest these lead to new Holocausts, and
WHEREAS, the United States Holocaust Memorial Council is again
calling for a national observance with prayers, commemoration, and
study, to renew our determination to prevent the recurrence of genocide
against any national or ethnic group, and

Rabbi Foust of USF to speak at
Beginning June 19, a new
series of Dali graphics will be
exhibited in the gallery of the
Salvador Dali Museum. Entitled
the "Aliyah Suite," the suite is
comprised of 25 lithographs of
original gouaches, and was
executed by Dali in 1968 to com-
memorate the state of Israel as a
renewed country. The "Aliyah"
suite comes from the Museum's
reserve collection, and has not
been exhibited in St. Petersburg
before. Rabbi Jeff Foust of USF
will speak at the preview recep-
tion on Monday night, which is
open to the public for a nominal
Aliyah, literally translated,
means the migration to the land
of Israel. However, in terms of
recent Jewish history, it has
come to mean rebirth, transfor-
mation, or resurgence. The
"Aliyah" suite reflects moments
in history that have remained
crucial to the past, present and
future of the Jewish state of
Israel. Each lithograph is either
accompanied by a Biblical quote,
or is identified as depicting a
subject or moment important
during the years of the aliyah
Dali's "Aliyah" suite was a
commissioned work, one of many
executed between 1964-78. Each
set of the limited edition of
graphics were accompanied by a
letter of introduction by David
Ben Gurion, who wrote: "The
distinguished artist Salvador
Dali has succeeded through the
power of his great artistry in em-
bodying in a number of prints the
marvel of Aliyah, which in a
short time fahioned a renewed
people, a renewed country, and a
renewed as well as renewing
Rabbi Jeff Foust of the USF
faculty will be guest lecturer at
the exhibit preview and reception
on Monday, June 18, from 6:30-
8:30 p.m., and will speak about
the encompassing meanings of
aliyah. While free to Dali
Museum membes, this reception
is open to interested individuals
for a charge of $4 per person. For
reservations, please call the
Museum at (813) 823-3767.
The "Aliyah" suite replaces
the "Dali Halsman" exhibit in
the Museum gallery, and will be
on display through Jan. 13,1985.
Two refuseniks were
imprisoned for activities
connected with their applications
to emigrate to Israel.
both construction engineers from
Kiev, have been waiting with
their families over five years for
permission to leave. Cherniak, 35,
was sentenced to four years
imprisonment with foreclosure of
personal property for "forgery"
and "embezzlement" under
Articles 83 and 194 of the
Ukrainian Criminal Code, despite
the fact that all witnesses
testified in his favor at the trial.
His wife, INNA, believes he was
tried because he is a friend of
POC LEV ELBERT. Cherniak is
appealing the verdict. Otche-
retyansky, 44, served three
months in a labor camp in the
Fall of 1980, and was resentenced
in October 1983 for his refusal to
reclaim his passport, which he
had submitted to the OVIR office
with his initial application in
1979. His refusal to reclaim the
document appears to be a
symbolic renunciation of Soviet
citizenship, made to stress his
desire to leave.
In hope of obtaining a lighter
sentence for her incarcerated
ZUNSHArN, together with
fellow Riga activist
pealed on May 18 to the UN
Commission on Human Rights
through the Association for Co-
operation with the UN in
Moscow. The following day, after
reading the appeal over the phone
to a friend in Jerusalem, she and
Baiter were arrested by seven
KGB men, who forceably sent
them back to Riga after
searching them in a forest on the
outskirts of town and threatening
them with beatings.
In Riga, Tatyana was
summoned to the local
procurator, who threatened to
charge her with "parasitism" for
"making so much noise." She is
vulnerable to the charge because
her internal passport without
which she cannot get a job was
taken when she and her brother
were attacked in March
(NEWSBREAK, March 30,
1984). Concerning her husband,
the procurator said he would
"demand the maximum punish-
ment" at his trial.

More Attacks To Be Expected
Ehud Barak, Chief of Military
Intelligence, said that attacks on
Israel Defense Force personnel in
south Lebanon will continue for
some time. He said most of the
recent attacks have been carried
out by local Lebanese residents,
either for money or ideological
Barak said in a radio interview
that some of the groups attack-
ing IDF personnel acted on
orders from Lebanese influenced
by Iran and others affiliated with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. The attacks will
continue, he said, until a Leb-
anese armed force capable of
preventing terrorist activity is
formed to replace the IDF in
south Lebanon. That will take
some time, he said.
No Word
From Beirut
Israel has had no official notice
from the Lebanese government of
the possible closure of the Israeli
liaison office maintained in a
northern suburb of Beirut, the
Cabinet was informed by Uri
Lubrani the coordinator of Israeli
affairs in Lebanon.
The Cabinet decided to discuss
the issue only if and when an
official request is made by the
Lebanese authorities to shut
down the office.
Adverse economic
conditions in South
America are beginning to
affect members of the
Jewish community there,
particularly in Chile and
Brazil, according to
reports presented to the
Board of Directors of the
World Council of
Synagogues, the interna-
tional arm of Conservative
Discussing the situation in
Chile, Rabbi Angel Kreiman, the
Grand Rabbi of Chile's 30,000-
member Jewish community, said
that the economic situation in the
country "has never been so bad
before. The country suffers from
a 30 percent unemployment rate
which finds some families in our
synagogues without jobs and in
need of food, clothing and other
living assistance."
KREIMAN, who has been in
Chile for the past 15 years, said
that the sisterhoods of the three
Conservative congregations were
working closely with these
families to assure that they were
provided with every need. He
said there were at least 60
families in Chile on the poverty
level requiring assistance.
The rabbi also reported the
emergence of neo-Nazism in the
country. He said that there were
incidents of swastikas daubed on
billboards and that members of

One of the essential benefits of arranging a funeral
service prior to need is that all of the pertinent deci-
sions may be made logically and intelligently, when
vou want and how you want. In this way individual
preferences, from the selection of the casket and the
burial vault and other jdetails. may be assured.
We believe it is our professional responsibility to
offer families complete information on pre-arranged
funerals and pre paid plans We do so without cost or
obligation to you To arrange a visit, call or write us at
your convenience.

rightwing extremist groups wear
armbands with swastikas. He
said the Jewish community
maintained excellent relations
with government officials.
However, these officials do little
to discourage these Nazi
Kreiman said that there are
frequent pro-Palestinian demon-
strations, which are adding to the
tensions. Since there are 300,000
Arabs in Chile, the government is
"careful" in dealing with the
demonstrations and "does little
to discourage them," he said. He
expressed belief that the death
earlier this month of Nazi Walter
Rauff would do little to reduce
neo-Nazi activities in chile.
A SERIOUS situation in
Brazil was also reported by Rabbi
Marcelo Rittner of the
Congregation Israelite Paulista
in Sao Paulo. He said the nation's
estimated 20 percent unem-
ployment rate has caused a
number of Jews to lose their jobs,
particularly in well-paid profes-
sions such as engineering. He
emphasized, however, that condi-
tions had not yet reached the
poverty level in Sao Paulo or Rio
de Janeiro.
Rittner stated that many
Brazilians, including Jews, were
working for less than a minimum
wage merely to subsist. He indic-
ated that members of his
congregation had set up a job
bank to assist those in need of
employment, although no family
as yet had reached the poverty
proportions of Chilean Jews.

Community Invited to BAYPAC Meeting
BAYPAC. a bi-partisan
political action committee
composed of members of the
Jewish Communities of Tampa,
St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and
Sarasota. begins its third year
with an annual meeting Sunday.
June 17, at the Marriott Airport
Hotel at 10 a.m.
All members of the community
are invited to attend to learn
about BAYPAC's goals and
achievements and to listen to
Congressman Larry Smith.
Democrat of Florida, who will
discuss the current status of rela-
tions between the U.S. and
The purpose of BAYPAC is to
educate members of Congress
about issues relating to a strong
U.S.-Iraeli relationship and to
provide financial support to those
candidates who encourage that
BAYPAC's first priority
concerns members of Congress
from our local geographyc
districts: secondly, members of
the Congress and Senate from
Florida: and. lastly, members of
the Congress and Senate from
states with a small Jewish
One example of the success of
this process is that the 1985 U.S.
Foreign Aid Bill will provide
Israel with outright grant of over
$2.5 billion dollars.
Locally. BAYPAC has been
able to achieve excellent rela-
tionships in two instances: First,
Congressman Michael Bilirakis
of Florida's Ninth Congressional
District has proven himself to be
an outstanding friend of Israel.
Congressman Bilirakis has sent
letters to the President against
arms to Arab countries who
refuse to recognize and-or nego-
tiate with Israel; has adopted a
Soviet Jewish family for whom he
speaks on the floor of the
Congress; has co-sponsored a bill
moving the U.S. Embassy from
Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; and,
recently, in line with his view
that foreign aid should be sent
only to friends of the United
States, Congressman Bilirakis
provided a dicisive vote on the
1985 Foreign Aid BUI a bill
which passed the Housse by only
six votes.
Congressman Bilirakis has
visited Israel and speaks out with
personal knowledge of the issues.
Secondly. Congressman Sam
Gibbons of Florida's Seventh
Congressional District has
provided valuable assistance
with our endeavor to provide a
free trade zone between Israel
and the United States. As
Chairman of the House Ways and
Menas Sub-Committee on Trade,
Congressman Gibbons has been
instrumental in gaining support
for this bfll as it moves through
Congress. A free trade area is
vital to solving Israel's economic
problems. Although Congress-
man Gibbons did not vote for the
Foreign Aid Bill, both Congress-
men Bill Young (Pinellas) and
Connie Mack (Sarasota) did.
In 1983-84. BAYPAC will also
be involved in key national races.
BAYPAC will support Congress-
man Paul Simon in his effort to
defeat Senator Charles Percy in
Illinois and Governor James
Hunt in his effort to defeat
Senator Jesse Helms in North
BAYPAC will support (among
others) Congressman Clarence
Long, Senator Rudy Boschwitz
and Senator Carl Levin in their
re-election campaigns in
Maryland, Minnesota and
BAYPAC's goals for 1984-85
our third year is to increase
the group's membership to over
100 and increase the budget over
$25,000. That is why the annual.;
meeting on June 17 has been
opened to the entie community.
Congressman Larry Smith, the
speaker, is a member of the
House Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee and the important Sub-
Committee on the Middle East.
He will answer questions on our
Those in the community who
cannot attend, but wish to parti-
cipate in BAYPAC may call Ted
