dson to a high post at the
Department of Health and
Human Services. Richardson

Gejdenson strongly urged the
administration to adopt a

enhancement equipment to Saudi
Arabia, and voted against the

TOP Jewish Foundation Over
$4 Million in Endowment Funds
,"
The excitement level was high
at the TOP Jewish Foundation's
recent quarterly trustees'
meeting. The trustees from
Tampa, Orlando and Pinellas
County learned that as the bell
tolled closing out calendar 1984
the endowment assets of the
Foundation had grown to over $4
million. This represents an in-
crease of over $2 million since
June 30, 1984 (the close of the
Foundation's fiscal year), when
endowment assets stood at just a
little over $2.2 million dollars.
Les Barnett, Tampa trustee
and newly-elected president of
the Foundation, commented that
each community should be very
proud of what was accomplished.
Speaking on behalf of Tempa,
Blossom Leibowitz reported that
Tampa gifts during the month of
December totaled $383,880
bringing its total component
endowment funds to $688,682.
Orlando reported an increase
during the month of December of
$626,605 which increased its total
endowment funds to $1,970,207.
Reporting for Pinellas County,
Bruce Bokor told the trustees
that gifts totalling $896,250 came
in during the month of December
which swelled the Pinellas part of
the TOP endowment pie to
$1,733,103.
"It's too bad every month
can't be December," stated Joel
Breitstein, Charitable Tax
Planning-and Endoment
Development consultant to the
TOP Jewish Foundation. "A
number of the gifts that came in
during this period were the result
of hard work throughout the
year. A number of the gifts into
the Foundation coincided with
tax planning. I might have met
with someone for the first time in
January, 1984 and as a result of
year end tax planning the person
realized that an idea we discussed
several times during the year
could help solve a particular
financial planning or tax
problem." Breitstein posed the
question, "Why should the
government get it. When it can
be put to much better use
through the TOP endowment
fund program for the benefit of
each participating Jewish
community?"

We Are Saving Lives Absorption
After the First Year Part 2
Kiryat Shemona's 250
Ethiopian Jews have been in
Israel for a year now. The Ulpan
course is over, and 30 of the men
and 15 women are ready to go out
to work.
"In Ethiopia they were proud
farmers and craftsmen," says
Shimon Asor, Kiryat Shemona's
employment coordinator. "But in
terms of Israel's work market,
they are unskilled. What we must
prevent is their sinking to the
bottom of the work pyramid."
An industrial sewing course
has been opened at Kiryat
Shemona's A ma I School for 15
Ethiopian women.
"They're aged 18 to 60," says
A trial principal Hanoch Ehrlich,
"and the idea of the course is to
teach them how to use the sewing
machines and to develop good
work habits like arriving on
time in the morning. We've taken
them to some of Kiryat
Shemona's textile factories, so
they can see what actual working
conditions are like, and we also
throw in classes on health, civics
and Hebrew language. It's the
first such course, and we're still
feeling our way."
The men are being offered
similar training in metalwork and
carpentry, but Shimon has more
ambitious ideas for them.
"We're trying to arrange
technical instruction in com-
puters and electronics," he says.
"That's the only real way to
ensure that the Ethiopians find
their true level in Israel."
Israel's nationwide shortage of
3,000 engineers and technicians,
recently announced by Absor-
ption Minister Yaacov Tsur,
suggests that Shimon is on the
right track. Young Ethiopians,
graduating from Youth Aliyah
schools, are trying a preparatory
year at the universities in
Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and
Beersheba but greater hopes
are vested in an engineering
course at Beersheba s College of
Technology.
"Ethiopia's system seems to
be biased toward learning by
rote," says an Israeli high school
teacher who has been working
with Ethiopian students. "Less
emphasis is placed on applying
knowledge or an abstract
thought. The younger Ethiopian
immigrants will study in Israeli
schools, so this educational
tradition will not handicap them.
But it seems that technical work
will suit the older arrivals better
and Israel certainly needs
that."
The very best of Ethiopia's
Jewish community is coming to
Israel, says Shimon. "Because of
the traumatic journey, it's only
those who are highly motivated
and fired with idealism who
come. They constitute a vital
resource that mustn't be
wasted."
Perfect Match: Federation

By BERNICE BRESSLER
We would like you to meet
Jamie. Like many first
generation American-Jews whose
parents immigrated to New York,
Jamie's life had its roots and was
committed to his family, the
work ethic and his religion. Jamie
fondly recalls that he has always
been involved in some form of
synagogue or Jewish community
endeavor.
Then, all of a sudden, or so it
seemed, illness struck and Jamie
was told that he had degenerative
multiple sclerosis. Medication,
therapy and the inevitable ac-
ceptance of a life style bound by
physical limitations were to
become a way of life.
Jamie's determination and a
natural zest for life have been and

continue to be his strength. There
are times, of course, of fear and
insecurity, but I have never
heard Jamie complain or bemoan
his fate. He just does not have
the time. On any given day,
Jamie may be seen at the Kosher
Congregate Dining program at
the Jewish Community Center or
volunteering his time at the busy
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service office. Jamie also enjoys
giving of his time at the Jewish
Community Center office by
helping with some of the clerical
duties. On Super Sunday, Jamie
worked right along with all of the
other dedicated volunteers in
Pinellas County.
As he sits and reflects, Jamie
sees his role in terms of a "double
mitzah" in which he and the
Jewish community are partners,
each contributing one to the
other. We see a highly principled
man with a strong sense of moral
obligation. He refuses to be a
taker without making every
effort to return help with service.
For the past few years, Jamie
has from time to time, received
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service Homemaker Services,
emergency financial help to pay
for expensive life sustaining
Jamie Nicholson
medications from the Koved
Fund, GCJFS counseling and
primary care and ongoing agency
supportive casework.
According to Jamie, all of this
and more have truly carried him
over the rough spots and have
given him the courage to con-
tinue.
Jamie is one of hundreds in
Pinellas County who benefit from
the combined efforts and
generaity of Federation, the
concerns and services of Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Services
(GCJFS) and the participation of
the Jewish community.

Thank you. Pinelias County!!
hose words were echoed by the
red but happy volunteers at the
L of SUPER SUNDAY, when
was announced that over
kO.OOO was raised on that one
BV
I Super Sunday is the annual
llephone marathon conducted
Federation and the United
fewish Appeal to raise funds for
Ews in need locally, in Israel,
td around the world.
I Over 300 volunteers gathered
at the Jewish communitv center
in St. Petersburg and" at the
offices of Superior Surgical
Manuiacturing Company in
Seminole to call their friends and
neighbors for their 1985 gift to
the annual Combined Jewish
Appeal campaign.
Jean and Julie Malkin
chairpersons of Super Sunday,
said, "We are overwhelmed by
the response of the community to
Super Sunday, and want to thank
everyone who made a gift when
thev were called. Because of this
great humanitarian etfort, needy
Jews in all corners of the globe
ill benefit from our efforts.
Julie continued. "Special
thanks to all the volunteers who
served on committees, made
calls, did clerical work, and
helped in so many ways. We
could not have succeeded without
their involvement."

lloridian for a list of all the Super
Sunday volunteers.
Menorah Manor
Approves Operating Budget
"Many of us have had
nhappy experiences with
Wsing homes in West Central
Borida, as well as in other parts
Jthe country. These have left us
Kth the determination to have
lenorah Manor achieve the
ghest quality of programs and
vices possible," stated Irwin
liller, president of Menorah
lanor, at a recent Board of
lovernors meeting. Miller
essed that the goal for "Our
lome for Jewish Living" is to be
[quality facility for all members
the Suncoast Jewish Corn-
unity. The Manor has been
olded after the finest Jewish
omes throughout the country
^d will operate on the basic
emise of the dignity and
pithiness of each individual,
dicated to helping each person
Ihieve a maximum potential and
Lei of independence.
|The Board of Governors
jcently approved the first year's
era ting budget and established
costs for care. Edward W.
nocur, executive director,
|vised that the Home will follow
tradition of other Jewish
omes and provide services to all
feidents, regardless of their
iility to pay. Secondly, he noted
that the board developed an
inclusive cost of care, so that a
resident or resident's family
would not be burdened with
receiving numerous or confusing
bills. This would make it possible
for each resident to benefit from
varied programs, treatments and
services without attaching a
financial cost to each.
Vinocur further stated that
many local homes publish a basic
rate which only covers room and
board, and then bill the resident
for each additional service,
therapy or supply separately.
Menorah Manor's average cost
of approximately $75 per day
becomes extremely competitive
when the total cost of long term
care is compared. The cost of care
provides the full range of services
including routine and specialized
nursing care, treatment by the
Home's medical director and
staff psychiatrist, kosher meals
and snacks, all therapy services,
programs, activities, laboratory
services, all medical supplies and
non-prescription medications.
The only additional charges
would be for prescription
medications, barber-beauty shop,
dry cleaning, long distance or
private telephone services, or
outside medical attention.
The Rescue of
Ethiopian Jews
It has been widely reported in
I general media that premature
fclicity brought an untimely
It to the airlift rescue of
tiiopian Jews.
Because of the delicate nature
the operation. The Pinellas
vish Federation and The
vish Floridian chose not to
bort on the rescue efforts over
ipast weeks.
The issue remains a sensitive
b. and in the hope that means
will be found to complete the
rescue, we will not print anything
that might endanger these ef-
forts.
In the meantime the Jewish
Agency is deeply involved in
caring for those Ethiopian Jews
who have reached safety. We can
all take pride in the fact that
Israel, despite her many
problems, continues to place the
highest priority on human lite
rather than economic concerns.

Pinellas County Homemaker Services
From a small beginning just a
few years ago, the homemaker
program has grown to provide
some 3,500 service hours per
month in support of 300 clients
throughout Pinellas County.
The clients are largely shut-ins
because of age, infirmity or
disability. Regrettably, too many
of these people have no relatives
to help, and some are even
without a friend.
The homemaker quite often
serves as a consoling companion,
in addition to rendering
necessary support functions,
including housecleaning,
preparing meals, shopping and
running errands.
Some 45 homemakera are
presently at work in geographical
areas arranged to keep travel
expenses to a minimum
Pinellas Homemaker Program
is funded through a state con-
tract with the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative
Services; the City of St.
Petersburg General Revenue
Sharing, and the Community
Trust Fund Program, Pinellas
County Social Action Fund and
the Jewish Federation.

The weekend of Jan. 18-20 was
designated Federation-UJA
Weekend by Temple Ahavat
Shalom in Dunedin. David
Bowman and Paul Hochberg,
temple members, were chairmen
of the events, assisted by Rabbi
Jan Bresky and Bobby
Rosenberg, temple president.
The events began at Shabbat
services when Saul Schechter,
Federation president, was
speaker. Mr. Schechter addressed
the congregation about the role
Federation plays in the com-
munity and how the Federation,
synagogues, and Jewish
organizations work cooperatively
as a family to take care of Jewish
needs.
Rabbi Bresky spoke about the
responsibility of the American
Jewish community to support the
Combined Jewish Appeal
Campaign and thereby help Jews
in distress wherever they may be.
Also present representing
Federation were Sidney Wemer,
treasurer; Elisa Greenberg, 1985
Campaign chair; and Dr. Joel
Shrager, chairman, Human
Relations Committee and
Synagogue Outreach.
On Sunday morning a break-
fast was held at the temple.
Rabbi Bresky, Mr. Schechter,
Paul Levine, executive director of
the Jewish Federation, and Elisa
Greenberg spoke. Mrs. Green-
berg told about the need to raise
money to help Jews in distress in
all parts of the world, to support
our local agencies who provide
services here at home, and of the
heroic effort being made by Israel
to rescue Ethiopian Jews.

| to the man of the cloth, so
eak, the rabbi or the
er as is the case. His story
hne follows the events of the
tunes as they occur in the 50's,
the 60's and the 70's, starting
with his arrival in 1948. His first
objective is to firmly establish his
newly-created temple in the
community. The first death that
he encounters is that of his
father-in-law. Herbert Spendler.
The Spendlers had always been
very diffident about religion, and
had no ties with a synagogue.
Rabbi Hartman decides to bury
him in Leighton Ridge. Con-
currently with this happening,
the small temple, which has been
converted from its original state,
that of a church, is desecrated
and defaced with red paint. The
name plate TEMPLE SHALOM
is spray painted and blatantly
splattered with signs of
swastikas on the outside. Inside,
a similar pattern of defacement
on the pews, and also on the
tablets with the Ten Com-
mandments is discovered, even
the cover of the Scroll of the
Torah is marred and ripped. This
is viewed as an overt act of
hostility and anti-Semitism and
investigated by the local police.
The solution is a simple one, but
the hate is there; Rabbi Hartman
despairs, but carries on coupled
with his father-in-law's sudden
funeral and the grief that Lucy
and her mother are experiencing,
Rabbi Hartman is thoroughly
initiated into the depth of his
position, and the importance his
religious involvement. He must
be able to cope with not only the
many problems but he must, in
addition, guard himself to face
the pressures of the world outside
Temple Shalom.
In the 50's, the dire effects of
McCarthyism are far reaching,
and Leighton Ridge experiences
the imprint. The case of the atom
spies attracts a great deal of
attention and the community is
divided as to their guilt or in-
nocence. When the action moves
to the 60s, the problems of the
Negro are dealt with, and
segregation is an issue. Flagrant
are the memories of the riots and
violence, the police intervention,
the state troopers and the
jailings. Just such an incident is
described in detail in The Out-
siders, and Rabbi Hartman is
shoulder to shoulder with many
ministers as they join together to
participate. The exact details are
cloaked in some mystery as to the
area, but the "Cause" is un-

mistakable. Another incident of
consequence is the march in New
York City against the war in
Vietnam. Once again, the rabbi
joins forces in a long vigil
protesting this movement. It is
especially relevant that he is
involved at this time, because
many, many ministers, priests
and rabbis demonstrated in anti-
war stands.
The author takes into con-
sideration people and their
feelings, as well as historical
events. He includes reactions to
world events on both sides of the
ledger. It is in no way a great
book or an important work, but it
is, possibly. Howard Fast's first
novel to date. David Hartman,
chaplain and rabbi, is the main
character and his career as
related to his profession and the
times is the main thrust of the
plot. The Outsider has its own
theme, and it strikes many a
familiar note and chord that rings
out in the reader's memories.

YOUNG JUDAEA
Clearwater Chapter is once
again alive and operating at full
steam. Young Judaea is a
Hadassah-sponsored Zionist
youth movement. Members
handle all meetings, program-
ming and activities with limited
guidance. Willie Harris is ad-
viser.
The club already has 11 en-
thusiastic members. In the past
several months activities have
included a weekend trip to the
Gainesville chapter, a cookout at
Brooker Creek Park and a
Chanukah party. Attendance has
been excellent and four members
even went to the Southeastern
convention in December in
Alabama.
The club is flourishing due to
the efforts of president Donna
Bernknopf. Her persistence has
encouraged other members to
become active including
programmer David Eisenberg
and vice president Pamela Rolfe.
Co-treasurers Richard Harris and
Rayah Bernknopf are planning a
fundraiser for February or
March.
Upcoming events include a
roller-skating party and a
weekend get-together with the
Gainesville and Orlando clubs in
Clearwater.
The club is seeking more
members of high school age.
Anyone interested call Willie
Harris at 796-5010.
Donna Bernknopf is also
sponsoring a third to fifth grade
club. She can be reached at 786-
4404.

There's so little
time now.
I wish
we had
taken
the time
then.".
For many people, the first moment they think about a
funeral and its related costs is when they have to. But by
then, they may be neither emotionally nor financially
equipped to deal with the situation.
To eliminate this problem, more and more families
arc coming to us today for information on pre-arranged
funerals and pre paid plans. One such monetary plan is
called a funeral trust agreement, by which the money
allocated in trust, which is deposited in an insured
financial institution, still belongs to you and may be
withdrawn at any time.
Feel free to ask us for the facts on funeral planning
prior to need, available now without cost or obligation.
