Consequently the communities

never learned how to assimilate or
ask for Israel's assistance. Their
Israeli communities existed as
islands with inhabitants sinking
into poverty.
"It wasn't like with the Ethio-

referring to organized Israeli and
World Jewry efforts (including
the Pinellas Federation) to help

"Project Renewal isn't an ongo-

said. "It's meant to be over and

"It's not just building new
apartments so people who are liv-

size of our two-car garages can
live. It's fixing up neighborhoods,
providing sewerage, services,
telephones.
"It's teaching mothers how to
play with toys so they can teach
their children what toys are and
what to do with them.
It's care of the aged. It's

A SI,450.000 Combined Jewish
Appeal 1986 campaign goal was
adopted by the Jewish Federation
of Pinellas County's board of '
directors at its September
meeting.
"As they say in Israel, we really
have no choice," said Federation
president Stanley Newmark, who
is also one of three coordinators
for the 1986 campaign. Board
members Reva Kent and Charles
Rutenberg also serve as '86 cam-
paign coordinators.
In approving the goal, the board
noted the 1986 goal is simply a
catch-up figure plus modest in-
creases to compensate for infla-
tion and increased local, national
and international needs.
"In 1984, the campaign raised
$1 206,000, but then in 1985, we
detoured and the total raised
dropped to $1,100,000 down
irom the previous year although
the needs had increased,"
Newmark said.
"So the board decided to borrow
although at a good interest rate
$100,000 so we would not have
to cut allocations to the
beneficiary agencies." he said.
"Now just to stay even and repay
the loan we would have to raise
$1,300,000 and that would be
keeping everyone at the same per-
formance level."
"I don't think as a thriving,
growing and exciting Jewish com-
munity, we can afford to let ser-
vices stay where they were,"
Newmark told the board. "New
people are moving in all the time."
Newmark said everyone would
hope that no one in the community
needs financial help, that
everyone is healthy and all the ag-

Serious Pun With Math At The Jewish Day School
'Memo From The Presidei
Touching and seeing concrete
objects (manipulatives) are part of
experiencing the world of
mathematics at the Pinellas Coun-
ty Jewish Day School. The Jewish
Day School has acquired a variety
of manipulative materials for
primary mathematics instruction.
These materials complement the
many teacher-made math learning
center activities.
Among the new materials
adopted are Unifix cubes, number
scales, a simulated supermarket,
number value blocks, and
Cuisinaire rods. In addition,
records, which combine hearing
and movement activities,
stimulate understanding of
number concepts. Catchy tunes
are helping second through fourth
graders memorise addition, sub-
traction, multiplication and divi-
sion facts. Push button number
grids light up with answers to
number fact problems.
Problem solving and critical-
thinking skills are enhanced by
the addition of resource materials
for grades four through seven.
These materials support the many
different computer software pro-
grams being used in these grades.
Students are challenged to
discover relationships between ob-
jects, and to record their
discoveries through representa-
tional graphing.
"Mathematics is best learned
through concrete discovery," ac-
cording to Dr. Lenore Kopelovich,
director of General Studies at the
school. "Mathematics is going
shopping for a dozen eggs, and
three pounds of sweet potatoes, or
sharing your granola bar among
five friends. Mathematics is sav-
ing a quarter out of your
allowance to give Zedakah."
"Every child comes to school
with a rich background for
mathematical understanding. This
background is as yet unorganized
in the Child's mind, but it is a rich
resource for a teacher who wishes
to help the child gain a real and
lasting understanding of numbers
and all their varied relationships,"
said Mary Baratta Lorton, early
childhood math educator. Jewish
Day School teachers support this
approach to learning
mathematics.
The Pinellas County Jewish Day
School is a beneficiary of the Com-
bined Appeal of the Jewish
Federation of Pinellas County.
Campaign '86 Goal: $1,450,000

ed have someone to take care of
them. "Unfortunately, it's not
true. We've got to help those peo-
ple who need help," Newmark
said.
Helping and serving Jews is the
role of the Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County.
Reva Kent explains.
"When we think of Federation,
we think of fund-raising.
However, that is not the role of
Federation."
Federation's role is assistance.
Federation is helping Jews na-
tionally and worldwide through
the United Jewish Appeal.
Federation is assistance to
Pinellas Jews through local
Jewish groups and organizations.
For instance, in Pinellas,
Federation is the Jewish Day
School, the Jewish Community
Center of Pinellas County, the
Gulf Coast Jewish Family Service
and the Kent Jewish Community
Center. These are the Federa-
tion's beneficiary agencies.
Federation means providing a
multitude of vital human services
from birth and continuing through
every stage of life.
The annual Combined Jewish
Appeal campaigns provide the
"how" for the Federation to
"do." Individual Jews, through
their contributions, provide the
"we" that gives the Federation
meaning.
"Services are costly," Mrs.
Kent explained. "In order to pro-
vide services for our community
as well as for overseas needs, it is
incumbent upon us to set our
goals high and to use a concerted
effort to reach these goals."
"In Federation, we save lives
and build a nation."
An Alert To The Effects Of Stress
By SHIRLEY SERBELL
At Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service, we see many people who
are suffering the physical and
psychological consequences of
stress. This is the first of two ar-
ticles discussing stress and ways
in which one can cope with it.
Stress is part of everyday life.
Burning the supper, living with
divorce, hosting a party, receiving
a promotion, moving, losing a
child, going on vacation, living
alone. Stress is a fact of life.
Stress is not the pressure from
the outside the divorce, the
burned supper, the vacation, etc.
Those are stressors.
Your response to those situa-
tions constitutes stress. Some
stress is good. Everyone needs
stress sometimes. Fighting for
your rights, preparing for the
holidays, making it through a
crisis, walking into a room full of
strangers, all demand the stimula-
tion of positive stress. Stress can
pump you up, give you energy,
supply a zest for living.
But. stress can also become
destructive. It can turn into
distress. We recognize the stress
of divorce or the death of a child,
but distress can also come from
less traumatic events such as
fighting with someone you love,
Shirley Serbell. ACSW
expecting too much of yourself,
turning every little setback into a
crisis. Stress is like spice in the
right proportion it enhances the
flavor of a dish. Too little pro-
duces a bland, dull meal, too much
may choke you. Everyone has an
appropriate level of stress. The
trick is to find it.
How will you know when stress
becomes distress? There are
physical symptoms such as a tight
throat, sweaty palms, an aching
head, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, a

vague uneasiness. Your weight
may go up or down dramatically.
Your sleep patterns change. Your
personal relationships may no
longer be satisfying. You may feel
more tired, depressed, frustrated
or restless than usual. All these
may suggest that you are ex-
periencing too much or too little
stress. Generally, you'll know
which one.
The results of ignoring Street
can be physical and or emotional.
Stress has been found to be
related to certain physical
ailments Buch as headaches,
ulcers, arthriti>. diarrhea
ima. heart problems, sexual
problems, circulatory problems,
muscle tension and other.- Street
may result in anxiety, anger,
depression or guilt.
It appears clear that it is
necessary to reduce the stress in
one's life, not only for the greater
enjoyment of life, but also as a
way to participate in creating a
healthier life.
There are techniques one can
learn to use to reduce stress which
can be effective if used regularly.
Stress reduction takes effort but
it is an effort well worth it for
your physical and emotional well
being. In a subsequent article en-
titled "Techniques for Dealing
with Stress," suggestions for
stress management will be
detailed.

QACKAGING
Of all the social programs born
of the partnership between world
Jewry and the Jews of Israel,
none has generated more excite-
ment than Project Renewal.
It has been called "the single
most important program in Israel
today." Project Renewal attempts
to remove one of the last barriers
to a just and equitable society in
the Jewish Homeland.
Project Renewal is a com-
prehensive program that pairs an
American Jewish community with
a twinned Israeli neighborhood.
Our community is Tel Mond. This
is a town of 4,000 people located
northeast of Tel Aviv.
I was fortunate to visit Tel
Mond and meet with the mayor,
city council and hundreds of
residents. This is a town of Asian
and African Jews who came to
Israel in the late 1940s and early
'50s. These people need help
they need it desperately.
There is a lack of recreational
and social facilities in Tel Mond. It
is believed that this has created a
disproportionately high incidence
of psychological problems. This is
particularly noticeable among the
youth. The youth of Tel Mond are
not proud of their town. They
didn't invite friends because
"they don't have facilities their
friends will enjoy."
Tel Mond needs a community
center, day-care centers, youth
clubs, a library and much more.
Diaspora Jewry has accepted
the responsibility and is raising
funds from American Jews,
through UJA and Jewish com-
munities throughout the world.
Project Renewal is based firmly
on the principle of grassroots par-
ticipatory democracy. Involve-
ment of the Tel Mond residents is

Kollek said he had also lost a
personal friend whom he had
known for more than 20 years.
Springer regarded Jerusalem as
his second home, Kollek said. He

Street. Kollek recalled that Spr-
inger used to come to Israel at her
most difficult times, such as the
first days of the Six-Day War and
the Yom Kippur War.
He used to defend the case of
Israel in every form and every
forum. He was a central fighter

;irms to the Arab countries. He
did his utmost to prevent the Sal*
of Leopard tanks to Arab arm.
There was not one Speech ill which
he failed to mention Jerusalem.

The Jews of Hope
By Martin Gilbert
Reviewed by Louise Ressler
Martin Gilbert went to the
Soviet Union in 1983 to see for
himself the true situation of the
"refuseniks." More than 10,000
Jews in Russia have applied for
emigration permits and have been
rejected with various trumped-up
reasons of "security risks." Some
are given no explanation what-
soever, and told NOT to re-apply.
But they remain undaunted.

Gilbert is an accurate historian
and he blends the history of the
age-old persecution of Russian
Jews with these personal accounts
and memoirs of the refuseniks
whom he interviewed.
He highlights the reawakening
of Jewish identity that took place
in Russia after the Arab-Israeli
war in 1967, and the upsurge of
Russian anti-Semitism and
government, retaliation. As the
many applications for emigration
were made, the government dis-
qualified the requests and took
stringent reprisals. Many were
under the watchful eye of the
KGB, and were dismissed from
work and in constant danger and
often arrested. In these "false ar-
rests." Gilbert describes the
sentences, long prison terms or
exile to labor camps.
Through his interviews. Gilbert
developed some friendships with
these underground refuseniks and
made a solemn promise to spread
their message to the world.
The Jews of Hope is his answer.

CHAMBER GROUP
TO PERFORM
"SACRED SERVICE"
A rare musical event will take
place on Oct. 27 at 8:15 p.m. in
Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall
in Sarasota, when the Gloria
Musicae professional chamber
chorus will present a performance
of Ernest Bloch's "Sacred Ser-
vice*' (Avodath Hakodesh).
The "Sacred Service" is the
first large scale choral work by a
noted composer to set to music
the Sabbath morning service ac-
cording to the liturgy of the Union
Prayer Book as used by American
Jewish congregations. First per-
formed in 1933, it is a milestone in
choral history.
Rabbi Max Roth of Temple Beth
Sholom, Sarasota, has graciously
consented to act as the Narrator
for this special performance that
is dedicated to the memory of Dr.
Samuel Traeger, noted Longboat
Key civic leader and a friend of
the Gloria Musicae ensemble.
The baritone soloist for this con-
cert is Peter Schwender of
Venice. Born in Stuttgart, Ger-
many and trained in the Stuttgart
Conservatory and Opera School,
Mr. Schwender has performed
leading roles throughout Germany
and other European opera houses
as well as in the United States and
the Far East. He is a noted soloist
throughout Florida's Suncoast.
The Gloria Muscae chorus is
composed of classically trained
singers, many of whom have
graduate degrees in music, and is
under the baton of Dr. Stephen
Hodge of the University of South
Florida in Tampa. The group is a
member of the Association of Pro-
fessional Vocal Ensembles.
This marks the first time that a
choral organization has presented
a performance of this glorious and
inspirational Hebrew work in a
major public concert hall in the
Tampa Bay area.
In addition to the "Sacred Ser-
vice.*' Benjamin Karp. principal
cellist for the Florida West Coast
Symphony, will play the "Kol
Nidre." Also on the program is a
Brahms motet "0 Heiland Reis
Die Himmel Auf and the very
