Blue and White Ball
Planning In High Gear
Marion and John Joseph,
chairs of the Blue and White Ball,
have announced that planning for
the gala event is in high gear.
A planning luncheon will be
held on Thursday, Jan. 24, at the
home of Ida and Stan Michels.
The luncheon will be the kickoff
to the active recruitment of
volunteers and the organizational
efforts leading up to the Ball.
The Blue and White Ball has
become a central event in the
Pinellas County Jewish com-
munity. This year the ball will be
held on Sunday, Feb. 24 at the
Holiday Inn-Surfside. It will be
open to all individual contri-
butors of $1180 or more to the
1985 Combined Jewish Appeal
Campaign.
Over 250 people attended the
Ball last year and Mrs. Joseph
said that 300 people are expected
this year.
The Combined Jewish Appeal
is the annual fundraising camp-
aign of the Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County, held on behalf of
Jewish needs here at home, in
Israel, and around the world. The
campaign supports the United
Jewish Appeal, as well as our
local agencies and services, in-
cluding the Jewish Community
Center, Jewish Day School, Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service,
and Marshall and Reva Kent
Jewish Center.
The Mitzvah of Super Sunday
We've Got
Your Number,
Pinellas County
If you are Jewish and living in
fellas County, you will prob-
be receiving a phone call this
nday. Jan. 27 from one of your
^nds or neighbors, according to
Margolis, executive director
^he Jewish Community Center.
1 should know, for he is one of
most active organizers of
er Sunday "85.
[toper Sunday '85 is a local as
as a national effort to reach
people and raise more
ney for Jewish survival on a
jle day than ever before.
lundreds of volunteers will be
led for their own commitment
ore calling their fellow Jews in
ellas County to ask them for
^tributions to the 1986 Federa-
B-Combined Jewish Appeal
npaign. Tens of thousands of
nteers in other communities
ss the country will be making
ilar phone calls. Volunteers
| still needed for the 3:30-6 and
shifts. Please call the
Peration office at 446-1033 to
anteer.
ean and Julie Malkin are
er Sunday chairs. Mrs.
|kin commented "We'll be
ng to reach over 90 percent of
Jewish families on Super
Way. We'll be asking them to
port the life-saving work of
leration and its beneficiary
ncies here at home, in Israel,
I around the globe."
On Super Sunday, you will
have an opportunity to do a
Mitzvah. Through your generous
giving, you will touch the lives of
many other Jews. You will help
provide a dignified and caring
home for the elderly and ill at a
Joint Distribution Committee
center in Roumania, you will help
to educate a child at the Jewish
Day School or in a vocational
program in Israel. You will fight
anti-Semitism, help Soviet and
Ethiopian Jews, support Israel,
and provide the funds to continue
our support of our local agencies.
How can you do all this world
of good? How can you be a
Mitzvah maker? The answer is
through your tzedakah.
Tzedakah is not a charity.
Derived from the Hebrew root
meaning justice, it is related to
the word tzaddick a person
who lives a righteous and giving
life.
Tzedakah even more than
charity carries the connotation of
obligation. It is a mitzvah a
requirement, a commandment.
Tzedakah is one of the oldest and
worthiest of Jewish concepts. It
gives us the opportunity to do
something important to help
others to give life.
All Jews and those attached to
them are like brothers, as it is
said, "You are the children of the
Lord Your God" (Deuteronomy
13:18) "and if a brother will not
show mercy to his brother, then
who will have mercy on him? And
to whom can the poor look for
help? They can look for help only
to their brethren."
Tzedakah is a joyous, humane
and just action. On Super
Sunday. Jan. 27, when one of
your neighbors calls you, answer
generously.
Alfonsin: No PLO Office In Argentina
BUENOS AIRES -
(JTA) President Raul
Alfonsin has assured the
DAI A, the representative
body of Argentine Jewry,
that there is "no possibili-
ty" that the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization will be
allowed to open an office in
Argentina.
A delegation of the DAIA,
which is the World Jewish
Congress affiliate here, was
received by Alfonsin for an hour-
long meeting described af-
terwards as "very cordial." The
delegation was headed by the
newly elected president of the
DAIA, David Goldberg.
Fred Margolis,
director, JCC.
executive
Mr. Margolis continued, "I'd
like to make an appeal to every
Jew in the country. Please, when
you are called, don't regard it as a
nuisance. We are offering you the
chance to help ensure Jewish sur-
vival."
The Jewish Community Center
is helping to organize Super
Sunday as a demonstration of its
concern and support for tne
welfare of the overall Jewish
community and the state of
Israel.
Shultz Aired Soviet Jewry
Issue During Gromyko Talks
TEL AVIV (JTA) Secretary of State George
Shultz raised the issue of Soviet Jewry several times with
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko during their
arms control talks in Geneva, according to Mark Palmer,
a senior State Department official Shultz sent here as a
special envoy to brief Israeli officials on the Geneva talks.
Palmer is deputy assistant secretary of State for
European and Canadian Affairs. He reported to Deputy
Premier and Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir that Shultz
dwelt specially on the plight of Jewish refuseniks such as
imprisoned Anatoly Sharansky and Yosef Begun in the
course of his two days of talks with Gromyko and that he
urged the Soviet Union to halt its persecution of those
activists and of other Jews in the USSR who study
Hebrew.
THE PURPOSE of the
meeting was to express concern
to Alfonsin over the PLO propa-
ganda offensive which began
Nov. 29, the "International Day
of Solidarity with the Palestinian
People." It culminated with a
New Year's Day statement by
the president of the Argentine-
Arab Foundation that it was
"quite likely" that the govern-
ment would allow the PLO to
open an office in this country in
1985.
Goldberg said after the
meeting that Alfonsin had
assured the DAIA that his
government would not give
official backing to "any initiative
which might introduce problems
that are alien to us and which
would harm national unity."
Pacesetters Luncheon March 14
Rie annual Women's
Metter Luncheon will be held
Thursday, March 14, at the
|e of Mr. and Mrs. Irwin
le". according to Edie
nan and Jackie Jacobs,
s of the luncheon. The
Peon, held on behalf of the
9 Combined Jewish Appeal
?paign, is open to all indi-
vidual contributors of $1,0)0 or
more to the Women's Division.
Margie Green will once again
chair the Chai Division. In its
second year, the Chai division is
open to all individual contri-
buters of $1800 to the Women s
campaign, whi will join with the
Pacesetters at a combined
luncheon, where they are recog-
nized as Chai members.
Mrs. Jacobs commented, "My
major concern is educating every
woman of the great importance in
making her own gift, and sup-
porting the Combined Jewish
Appeal campaign. Without that
support, our local needs suffer,
and our beloved Israel suffers.
Mrs. Seligman continued,
"The Pacesetter luncheon is very
well received and attended. We
grow every year, and that is a
tribute to the women in our com-
munity. I'm sure with the
cooperation of our community,
that growth will continue this
year."

An Absorbing Year
-
*
\
"The State of Israel shall be
open to Jewish immigration and
the ingathering of the exiles."
Israel Proclamation of Inde-
pendence, 1948.
Those words have often meant
more than a new and better life.
They have meant life itself for
those able to reach Israel from
lands of distress. This has been
dramatically illustrated by the
heroic airlift of Jews from Ethio-
pia and neighboring countries.
Many thousands of Ethiopian
Jews have been taken to Israel in
recent months, and it is hoped
that thousands more will be
rescued within the next several
months. The following is the first
in a series chronicling the Ethio-
pian absorption process in Israel.
The First Days
They arrive in the Jewish state
"quiet, proud, happy and beauti-
ful, regal in their rags," says
UJA National Vice President
Elton Kerness, who, with UJA
national vice chairmen Alan
Shulman of Palm Beach and
Martin Stein of Milwaukee, met a
group of recently arrived Ethio-
pian Jews in an Israeli absorption
center in late November. "Most
of them had no shoes. Babies lay
without diapers. All they owned
was on their backs. And no one
seemed afraid or even con-
fused."
The second long journey of
Ethiopian Jews begins in one of
several Jewish Agency absorp-
tion centers set aside exclusively
for their use. Their guides are the
representatives of the Jewish
Agency's absorption and Youth
Aliyah departments, the Kupat
Holim Health Fund, and the
ministries of Absorption, Health
and Education who will lead
them carefully and gradually into
Israel's industrialized, techno-
logical society.
The Agency's welcome begins
with a blessing, as the im-
migrants are greeted with the
ringing words: "You're in the
land of-your forefathers now!"
Their first meal consists of boiled
potatoes, rice, bread and hot tea
fare prescribed by doctors be-
cause so many Ethiopians arrive
exhausted and ill.
"They have great dignity and
self-possession despite the
traumas they've experienced,"
Spelling Wizards At
Jewish Day School
"Unconstitutional," "shriek-
ing," and "necessarily" were a
few of the words included in the
third annual spelling bee held at
the Pinellas County Jewish Day
School on Friday, Jan. 25.
Students in first through sixth
grades participated in this year's
event, organized by Christine
Cain, director of general studies.
The Jewish Day School is
planning its first Hebrew
Spelling Bee for later this year.
The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School is a beneficiary
agency of the Combined Jewish
Appeal of the Jewish Federation
of Pinellas County.
says Stein. "They were hungry
but didn't eat until invited .
until a certain decorum was ob-
served."
Health checks and registration i
follow, that day or the next.
Malnutrition, eye and stomach
problems are most commonly
diagnosed and treated if pos-
sible, at the absorption center
with Amharic speakers on hand
to explain what is going on.
Clothes donated by the local
community fill a room in each
absorption center, and the new
arrivals are invited to choose
what they want.
"Some, especially the older
women, stay in traditional dress,
or at least keep their large woven
cloaks wrapped over their
Western-style clothes," says a
Jewish Agency social worker.
"But the men willingly pick out
jeans and shirts. Children who
have never heard of television
sport Superman T-shirts,and
infants are swaddled in Pad-
dington Bear baby clothes."
"I am proud and impressed by
the Jewish Agency people and
social workers who, with such
sensitivity and deep concern,
assist and care for the new ar-
rivals," says Shulman. "Each
time a group arrives they work
around the clock to begin the
long and complex task of absorp-
tion properly."
The Next Ten Months
With the first essentials taken
care of, the 10-month absorption
program double the length of
that provided Israel's other im-
migrants begins in earnest.
Rina, a Beersheba housewife, is
one of dozens of paraprofes-
sionals co-opted to help.
From the Rabbi's Desk
By RABBI
JACOBLUSKI
Congregation B'nai Israel
A recent survey is said to have
ascertained that the average
Ameican citizen spends 20 years
at work, 20 years sleeping, 16
years playing and five years
shaving and dressing. He also
spends five years eating and five
years just "waiting." During his
lifetime he will spend 8,760 hours
a complete year tele-
phoning.
Most of us now average some
3,000 free hours a year. What are
we doing with the rest of our
wakeful hours?
Apropos of these statistics,
there is a story in Greek
mythology in which the hero
observes, "The living are also
dead."
We live when we realize our
potential, and conversely, we die
when we subvert or repudiate our
y. own talents, capacity or
i capability. We undermine our
very existence when we needless-
S ly waste our time or ignore our
abilities.

Gulf Coast Jewish Family Service Receives Check
From National Conference Of Christians and Jews
Harry Green, president of Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service,
was proud to receive a check in
the amount of S260 from
members of the National Con-
ference of Christians and Jews.
f The check represented the
1 group's recognition and support
for the services that the Jewish
Family Service offers to the
indigent, the elderly, children and
families in times of crisis. Green
explained that this check, like so
many received from concerned
individuals and organizations,.
will be given to the Koved Fund
of the Jewish Federation which
was specifically set up to raise
funds for unbudgeted emer-
gencies.
Green explained that wherever
possible the organization makes
use of volunteers, whether
professionals such as doctors,
dentists and lawyers, or friendly
visitors, to assist with their
donated services before turning
to the Koved Fund.
Through the efforts of profee-

our community Combined Jewish Appeal campaigns, KindergQJ
and nursery schools introduce Ethiopian Jewish children to iS]
worlds of educational opportunity.
"The Beersheba absorption
center contacts me when new ar-
rivals are due," she says. "I go
along once they come in, and I'm
assigned to three or four families.
All I do that first day is go with
them to their absorption center
apartments and show them how
water comes out of the faucet,
how the toilet works, and so on.
"I go back next day, to take
them to the supermarket. I show
them what foods and cleaning
materials to buy, how to pay for
them and the safe way to cross a
busy street. Then we go back to
the apartment and learn how to
prepare and store the food and
how the stove works."
Two to three weeks are allowed
for this initial settling in. Then
infants begin kindergarten,
children are sent to school and
adults start at Ulpan.
Kindergarten is in the absorp-
tion center. "This is a different
kind of aliyah," says a Jewish
Agency kindergarten teacher.
"These children have never
played with toys before. At first,
they're frightened of dolls. But
they learn very fast. It's always
easiest with the kids."

Paradoxically speaking, during
our lifetime, we die many deaths.
We die when we forego our
powers of discernment and
perception, our feelings for
honesty and fair play, and when
we allow our prejudices and
biases to prevail. We die when we
insulate ourselves from all that is
good, decent and human, and,
therefore, become impervious to
the needs of others and the
pleadings of the less fortunate.
Yet, when we are receptive to
fresh and stimulating ideas, we
live many lives usefully and
wisely. We are truly alive when
we recognize that jostice and
liberty are as vital to our neigh-
bors as to ourselves. We live
when we realize that retaining a
youthful state of mind and
leading a worthwhile life are the
consequences of our own spiritual
consciousness.
Is there life after birth? Your
synagogue family can certainly
help you answer the question.

Who Cares For The Jewish Poor?

k to come to the awareness

inaccurate. Many Jewish
are too proud to come
|rd until absolutely

i is real and prevalent.
question then becomes:
lean we do as a community
i individuals to remedy this
ii? It is important to note
npressive first steps have
./ been taken. The Federa-
ls significantly increased
cation to the Gulf Coast
Family Services, the
r that primarily deals with
this problem. The Koved Fund, a
special fund designated for the
poor, has been given $10,000 with
an open-ended understanding
that if that money is used up,
more will be provided. The
Federation and its allocations
committee are to be commended
for this decision.
However, there is much more
to be done and we can do our
part.
First, our synagogues or
organizations must have special
sensitivities to the plight of the
poor. Every synagogue or organ-
ization should have its doors
open to the poor. Any Jew who is
turned away from a synagogue or
Jewish organization because they
cannot "afford it" impoverishes
our whole community. Some
Jewish organizations actually
limit in their constitutions the
number of poor and indigent
Jews who will be admitted. This
is a disgrace and most un-Jewish.
Further, we must be willing to
sponsor less fortunate people
within synagogue or organiza-.
tional life. We must be sensitive
to that elderly person who wants I
to go to the synagogue dance but'
cannot afford $25 or the Jewish
teenager who wants to go on the
class trip to "Shalom 85" but
who cannot afford the $12.50 for
the ticket. We must cease to
make a Passover Seder a fund-
raiser and make it a spirit raiser.
Most especially, we must never
ever turn aside the Jewish child
who wants to attend religious
school, but whose parents cannot
afford tuition or books. We and
our organizations shall be known
as we treat the least of these.
Another way to help is to have

UMITtD tNRCHlMENT
your synagogue or organization
sponsor a food basket. Congreg-
ants and school children can be
asked to bring canned food,
cereals and baby food. When suf-
ficient amounts are gathered, the
Gulf Coast Family Service or
Religious Community Services
will pick up the food and distri-
bute it to the needy.
Finally, there is you personal-
ly. If each one of us would open
our eyes and look beyond our-
selves we would see a person in
need. Personal assistance on a
one-to-one basis is the most vital,
effective means of tzedakah.
Maimonides taught us the
highest form of charity is to make
a person sell-sufficient. This is
most true today. When you see a
person out of work, help them
find a job. Become personally in-
volved. When you see a family in
need of low cost housing, help
them personally to find that
housing. When a child needs tui-
tion or books for school, pay that
bill also.
The performance of this
personal one-to-one mitzvah is
like a stone cast into a flat pond.
The ripple emanates from the
splash touching the whole pond
and lapping on its shores. The
small mitzvah of charity done
one-to-one ripples through the
community, making us all more
worthy of a messianic age.

guest speaker at the Brotherhood
breakfast at Temple Beth-El, 400
Pasadena Ave. S, Sunday
morning, Feb. 10 at 10 a.m.
His topic will be "The Lifeline
Letters," a project which
Richardson and his newspaper
launched a year ago in

Jews.
Names and addresses of
hundreds of Jews who were
imprisoned or under house arrest
in the Soviet Union because of

they sought to emigrate to Israel
were published. There was an
immediate response from thou-
sands of persons in Florida, who
wrote letters of hope and en-
couragement to the imprisoned,
persecuted and harassed people.
Richardson was the recipient of
the prestigious National Media
Award from the American Jewish
Committee "for initiating a the
Lifeline Letters and for out-
standing contributions to the

CAMP KADIMA UPDATE
According to camp committee
chair Beth Resnick, this year's
enrollment for Camp Kadima
gives all indications of being the
best year yet. Enrollment is very
high and many smart parents
have taken advantage of one-time
only Early Bird fees to sign their
children up. Beth cautions others
to remember that the Early Bird
fee is only good until Jan. 31, and
then regular camp fees will be in
effect.
After publication of our Camp
Kadima brochure, we discovered
that an omission had been made.
Grade levels for individual camp
groupings had not been
published. As this is the means
by which children are grouped,
we would like to list these grade
levels for your reference now in
order to avoid any confusion:
KINDERCAMP ages only
as shown
JUNIOR KADIMA -
children entering Kindergarten,
1st or 2nd grades in Sept. 85.
SENIOR KADIMA -

CAMP KADIMA REUNION
ENJOYED BY ALL
A large group of Camp Kadima
alumni and their parents enjoyed
our annual Camp Kadima
reunion at the JCC on Sunday,
Jan. 6. Acceding to camp com-
mittee chair Beth Resnick, it was
the best reunion in years.
The highlight of the day in-
cluded the apperance of "Michael
Jackson" (in this case cleverly
impersonated by James Scocca).
He had the whole reunion up on
their feet learning a routine to
"Thriller." After we had all be-
come professional break dancers,
thanks to "Michael's" lessons,
we enjoyed making our own ice
cream sundaes.
Many door prizes were given
out and all the children in atten-
dance were treated to prizes by
Fred Margolis, camp director.
