Elisa Greenberg To Lead 1985 CJA Campaign
I Elisa Greenberg has been sp-
linted chair of the 1985 Jewish
deration-Combined Jewish
d Campaign, announced
Schechter, Federation
sident. "Elisa is recognized in
community as a doer and a
prker. Her record in a variety of
lies is one of achievement, and I
\e\ certain that Elisa will lead
Cr campaign to new levels of
fcccess.' said Saul.
[Elisa served as 1984 Women's
Jvision Campaign Chan-, and
rough her leadership that
vision raised more funds than
before, surpassing the
157,000 mark. Prior to that,
was chair of the Federa-
tion's Community Relations
Committee, and was instru-
mental in expanding that com-
mittee to serve the needs of a
growing community.
In assuming the chair of the
campaign, Elisa commented, "I
am honored and privileged by
this appointment. Our CJA cam-
paign serves a very important
purpose. Not only does it try to
alleviate the financial burden of
Jews throughout the world, but it
also helps strengthen our per-
sonal bond with world Jewry.
When a Jew says: 'Yes, I will
work, yes, I will give,' he is in
fact saying: 'Yes, I am an inte-
gral part of this Jewish family
and I recognize my responsibil-
ities as such.' "
Elisa continued, "Finally, but
not less importantly, campaign
has a unifying effect on the local
community. When a community
of people come together for the
purpose of helping other less for-
tunate people, immediately that
cause becomes a unifying factor
for that community. We may
argue, naturally (because Jews
argue as a matter of principle,
practically), but we argue as
members of a family would argue
about family matters: the argu-
ment is always about the means,
such as how or who can best
achieve our goals. But it is never
about the goal itself, whether or
not we should help other Jews.
"In an effort to reach our goal,
all personal feelings, ideologies,
all divisive factors are cast aside
and we became one."
Elisa concluded, "To this effort
I pledge whatever physical or
intellectual resources I may have,
so that we may be successful in
helping fellow Jews in unity and
in love."
Elisa was born in Cuba and
educated in the United States.
Her family moved to South Flor-
ida in 1960, where she lived until
1975. Elisa and her husband
Lester live in Clearwater with
their children Melissa and Benja-

Mr. Rutenberg noted Askew's

Addressing the General As-

repeat, any people or state that is
interested in the evacuation of
the Israeli army from Lebanon
must see to it that the terrorist
organizations expelled from Leb-
anon by Israel do not return to
our borders to renew their at-
tacks. This is an essential condi-
tion for peace. Israel is ready to
cooperate in any serious effort
toward a fair solution to this

problems with Israel.

AS FOR the overall solution of
the Middle East conflict, Shamir
noted that recently the idea of
convening an international con-
ference on the Mideast was "re-
surrected." He pointed out that
the idea is promoted by the
Soviet Union which "has no
diplomatic relations with Israel
and that recommends the partic-
ipation of a terrorist organiza-
tion," the PLO, in the conference.
Israel, Shamir declared, is
against such a conference be-
cause it "would strike a blow at
the principle of direct negotia-
tions which has proved to be the
only means of producing agree-
ments between Israel and its
neighbors, from the time of the
general armistice agreement in
1949 through the Camp David
accords in 1978."
Shamir called on "member-
countries that have the interest
of peace at heart to bring their in-
fluence to bear on our Arab
neighbors" to seek peace with
Israel through direct nego-
MOST OF the Arab delegates,
except Egypt, walked out of the
Amsembly Hall as Shamir
started his speech. The Soviet
delegation, as well as some
African and Communist coun-
tries, were also absent from the
hall during the Israeli diplomat's
Shamir blasted international
terrorism and called on the inter-
national community to make the
war against terrorism one of its
major targets. "This is a war of
self-defense in its true sense, a
campaign that the free world
should undertake on behalf of its
peoples and the entire human
race," Shamir declared.
He said that Israel has been
waging an unrelenting war on
Arab terrorism. "The so-called
PLO, which had established its
own mini-terrorist state in Leb-
anon, from which it carried out
and assisted terrorist acts in five
continents, was expelled from
that country. But Israel cannot
be expected to shoulder alone the
burden of international terrorism.
Since we are all potential victims
of terror, we must fight it
together. If we do not, terrorism
will endanger our basic freedoms
and all the standards of civilized
behavior for which this organiza-
tion (the UN) stands."
SHAMIR SAID that Israel
has been calling repeatedly on
Jordan to join us in negotia-
tions for peace." He said that
Israel is interested in deepening
and strengthening its peace with
Egypt. But the Israeli diplomat
noted that reaching peace bet-
ween Israel and the Arabs must
be viewed in the context of the
realities in our region."

commended the Jewish Com-
munities of Central West Florida
for understanding "that the
measure of our civiliation is not
how big a building we can
build or in how much we can ac-
cumulate, but rather, the
measure of our civilization will be

The ADL received several
complaints when the Tampa
Chamber of Commerce an-
nounced their annual meeting
with special guest, Gov. Bob
Graham, that was scheduled for
Sept. 28, the second day of Rosh
Hashanah. Bob Becker,
Chairman of ADL's Regional
Board, sent a letter to the
Chamber expressing concern at
the choice of date. We received an
immediate response from
Chamber officials who apologized
for any inconvenience and ex-
pressed complete willingness to
work together in the future.
The recent passage of legisla-
tion entitling all student groups,
including religious and political
ones, to have "equal access" to
school property during school
hours will have a tremendous
impact on both studnets and
parents. Students will be bom-
barded with a proliferation of
organizations seeking their
membership and parents will be
required to be especially diligent
in helping their children to keep
track of these groups. Two
groups which have recently been
brought to the ADL's attention
as being active in this area are
Young Life and Campus Life.
They are both Christian proselyt-
izing organizations that seek to
recruit, and then convert, Jewish
students. Please warn your
students about the dangers of
this type of organization and
report any encounters your
children have with representa-
tives of these groups to the ADL.
In addition, should you have any
questions about these or any
other organizations, please call
the ADL at 875-0750.

House OK's Free
Trade for Israel
The House has approved the
establishment of a free trade area
with Israel by a 416-6 vote. The
Senate earlier adopted a similar
bill by a 96-0 vote. Differences
between the two bills will have to
be ironed out by a conference
committee, but the final legisla-
tion was expected to be adopted
by Congress before it adjourned.
The only concern about the
Free Trade Act, which was
sought by the Reagan Admin-
istration, came from some of the
areas whose products could be
hurt by Israeli competition.

Book Review
Jewish Authors-Friends or Foe?
(Part II)
The authors who have vilified
Jews in fiction are numerous.
Philip Roth may well head this
list. He is best known for Good-
bye, Columbus, his first work
(i959). which won the National
Book Award, and Portnoy's
Complaint 11969). He has been
called anti-Semitic in his writing,
and dangerous, because of the
impact of his works. Rabbi
Emanuel Rackman in an address
to the Rabbinical Council of
America, condemned him for
creating a "distorted image of the
basic values of Orthodox
It is further maintained that in
so doing Roth adds fuel to the
fires created by anti-Semites,
thereby lending them support.
Jewish audiences hearing him
speak, challenge him, and beg
him to let the Jews alone. He
admits to these accusations, but
sees no reason to be ashamed or
even defensive of his writing. In
self-justification, he answers that
he is only presenting the truth, a
real slice of life. Perhaps he does
not object to this notoriety; it
may sell copy!
Portnoy's Complaint, like
Goodbye, Columbus is another
negative account of Jewish
family life; vulgar, invidiously
revealing, sex-oriented at a time
when sex was not the rage it is
today in books and theater. Roth
was avant garde in this instance.
Despite all these facts, and in the
face of deadly public opinion,
Portnoy's Complaint survived a
storm of venomous criticism and
protest and sold!!
In conclusion re: Philip Roth.
His short story "Defender of the
Faith" appeared in the April
issue of the New Yorker
magazine in 1959. It concerns
two Jews in a training camp in
Missouri. First Sergeant Nathan
Marx and a recruit, Sheldon
Grossbart. Indignant readers
wrote to the editor stating that
Roth was doing the Jews irre-
parable harm. Once again the
Gentile's conceptions of the Jews
as liars, cheats, villains, and
connivers were compounded. The
Anti-Defamation League re-
ceived a letter asking, "What is
being done to silence this man??"
Philip Roth a fellow Jew, is he
an ally or an enemy?
We also have Mordecai Rich-
ler, a Canadian author, who does
not help our cause. He is a
perceptive writer despite his
brash style. His Canadian Jewish
readers have been aghast at some
of his fictional characters. In The
Apprenticeship of Duddy Km-
vitz, Duddy's father Max ap-
pears despicable. Another indiv-
idual in this same work, Jerry
Dingleman, a drug dispenser, is
depicted like a character in The
Godfather, a member of the
Jewish Mafia. In St. Horsemen
two individuals tear down Jewish
traditions and practices
ruthlessly. A recent novel
Joshua, Then and Now is Joshua
Shapiro's story from child, to
adult, to parent. It revolves
around his family's background
of poverty, and his marriage to
Pauline who shows him the other
side of life; a contrast, that of the
Gentiles. This book has every-
thing: love, sex deviations, fi-
nancial involvements and hur-
dles. It is of the moment, vulgar,
absurd, entertaining, dimen-
sional! Notwithstanding, an un-
desirable view of Jewish lifestyle
is again in the public eye. Is Mor-
decai Richler an accurate spokes-
man for the Jews for Canadian
and other reader? May not some
Gentiles take these views as
Gospel, and thereby reinforce
their ingrained misconceptions?
Temple by Robert Greenfield is
not just another expose of Jewish
life with its insights into Jewish
stereotypes. It is a very sharp,
revealing exposure of some Jews
at their very worst, heightened
by Greenfield's keen appreciation
of his subject matter. His eyes
and ears are really tuned in, and
his pitch in story-telling is ac-
curate and enlightening. At least
Greenfield also allows his charac-
ters to have virtues at times.
How about the oldie What
Makes Sammy Run? by Budd
Schulberg? Part of the scenario
takes place in the Lower East
Side, and this author presents a
character who in the beginning, is
a son from a poverty-level family.
He worked selling papers for a
year before he entered school, a
puny, pitiful appearing
youngster. The world had put a
chip on his shoulder, and then
would knock it off, as he grew.
Sammy was ready to accept the
challenge all by himself, and this
was a fight to the finish. The
author of Sammy is presenting
the premise that economics is the
basis for the vulturous actions,
yet he offsets the evils in
Sammy's makeup by creating his
brother Israel, who suffered these
same ills, yet he remained in the
slums and became a social
Jerome Weidman in / Can Get
It For You Wholesale written in
1937; (another novel nearing a
50th birthday) gave us Harry
Bogen. a business cheat who
gloats over his successful capers.
American-born Bogen entices a
top designer away from a compe-
titive firm, by offering him a
partnership. There is nothing re-
deeming about Harry Bogen s
character. Note the date 1937
the heyday of Nazism. Weid-
man was cautioned to slacken his
sharpness, after he produced a
sequel: What's In It For Me? He
agreed, realizing his stories could
be misunderstood and misused.
Years later Wholesale became a
highly successful musical
In conclusion: Jews and all
people have their faults, and their
virtues. If Roth's, Richler's,
Schulberg's and Weidman s (and
many other authors') characters
were a composite of these human
traits, a mix, there would be no
ground for challenge. It is their
stressing of the vices, the vul-
garity, the pretentiousness, the
constant striving to be "first,"
that we resent.
Ergo: Are authors of such high
caliber and capability helping or
hurting our cause? What do you

Why did the King reject Isra-
el's peace feeler out of hand?
Optimists theorized that Hussein
needed to draw a hard line to
mollify rejectionists angry over
his decision to re-establish
diplomatic relations with Egypt.
According to this scenario,
Hussein figures that because
negotiations are unlikely prior to
the U.S. presidential election, he
could afford to take a stand now
without jeopardizing the
possibility of progress later,
when the United States renews
its initiative. Sudden policy
reversals are not uncommon in
the Arab world, particularly as
Arab rulers often say one thing to
foreign journalists and
something contradictory for local
One hopes the foregoing
scenario is not fantasy. But it is
no less probable that Hussein
finds himself in the same position

radicals who threaten to topple
him should he move toward
establishing peace with Israel.

One thing that is certain about
this episode is that readers of the

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
you want and how you want. In this way, individual
preferences, from the selection of the casket and the
burial vault and otherjdetails, 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.
