Elisa Greenberg To Lead
'86 CJA Women's Division
Ihe annual Jewish Federation-
Combined Jewish Appeal cam-
paigns ask husbands and wives to
make separate pledges, a tact dif-
ferent than some public
There's a reason, and Elisa
Greenberg knows why.
Mrs. Greenberg has been ap-
pointed 1986 Women's Division
Campaign Chair for the 1986
Jewish Federation-Combined
Jewish Appeal campaign by Stan
N'ewmark. president of the Jewish
Federation of Pinellas County.
The campaign goal for 1986 is
SI.45 million.
Mrs. Greenberg served as
General Campaign Chair for the
1985 campaign and as Women's
Division Campaign Chair for the
1984 campaign. She has also
chaired the Federation's Com-
munity Relations Committee and
was instrumental in expanding
that community to serve the needs
of a growing community.
In assuming her post for the
current campaign, Mrs.
Greenberg said, "As we proceed
with our campaign, we often have
wives question why they should
make separate pledges from their
But this seems to be a contradic-
tion from those who are so
forceful in seeking their rights in
business, in their professions, in
the arts and in the voting booths,
Mrs. Greenberg said.
"Why should these same women
then consider abdicating their
responsibilities in this particular
vital area of compassion and
humanity?" she asked.
"It is a moral responsibility that
we as Jews must assume simply
because we have no choice cer-
tainly not if we are concerned
with the Jewish survival of our
children and their children after
"The justification for Women's
Division is the same as for any
other women's organization.
Women are part of the communi-
ty, live in the community and have
a responsibility to the community.
'We are one' means exactly that
'one' men and women in-
dividually but together, not one
exclusive of the other," Mrs.
Greenberg said.
Women's Division is an arm of
the united Jewish community with
the Women's Division operating
its own fund-raising campaign and
educational programming to sup-
port the overall Combined Appeal
and the Jewish community.
"It seems like such a simple
description," Mrs. Greenberg
said, "but that is, in fact, our

Jewish women can make a dif-
ference in charting the course

reason to be our goal."
How does the Women's Division
accomplish these goals?
"First, in terms of the cam-
paign, the Women's Division,
under the very capable leadership
of Sue Schechter, had a very suc-
cessful 1985 campaign," Mrs.
Greenberg said. "With the new
divisions and new levels of giving

Once a Pledge is Made .
Memo From The President'
Supporters of the Pinellas
County Jewish community and
the State of Israel sometimes
don't realize that they can in-
crease the amount they contribute
without any increased expen-
diture on their part.
It sounds almost too good to be
true, but Irwin Miller, newly ap-
pointed chairman of Cash
Mobilization for the Pinellas
County Jewish Federation, says it
is really very simple.
"Once a pledge is made, all they
have to do is sit down immediately
and write their checks out and
mail them immediately." Miller
"If the cash is not received im-
mediately or shortly after a
pledge is made, this creates a dis-
count on the pledge." Miller said.
"The needs of the beneficiary
agencies and the funding is based
on the amounts pledged. If some
of the pledge money is not receiv-
ed, then the Federation has to
come up with the money from
somewhere else in the interim so
services will not be interrupted."
Sometimes the only interim
method available to the Federa-
tion is borrowing money. This
means the value of pledges-made-
but-not-received-yet is discounted
by the amount of interest the
Federation had to pay on the in-
terim loan. Miller said. Other dis-
counts can result because the in-
terest possible on pledges made
early is lost or inflation can
decrease a pledge's worth.
"The advantage to the con-
tributor can be a tax benefit, ac-
tually making the pledge payment
before the tax year changes," he
"Pledges are made and taken in
good faith," Miller said, indicating
most contributors are prompt in
sending in their pledge money. In
Irwin Miller
some cases, however, busy
schedules intervene and the time
lapse between the pledge and the
actual payment keeps getting
"We are just asking that people
be promt so that services to Jews
in need won't have to be inter-
rupted and the Federation can
make the best possible use of the
funds available," he said.
After all, pledges are actually
promises to help Jews in need
either locally or abroad through
the Federation. Payment of those
pledges is fulfillment of those
Miller, who has served two
terms on the Federation board of
directors, was recently appointed
by the board as vice president of
the Federation with a portfolio of
chairman of Cash Mobilization. He
has also served on the Federa-
tion's Budget and Allocation and
Large Gifts committees.
Miller and his wife are residents
of Vina Del Mar, St. Petersburg
Beach and formerly owned and
operated the Rellim, a kosher
winter hotel in St. Petersburg
Beach. The Millers are members
of Temple Beth El where Miller is
an active officer. Miller is also
president of Menorah Manor.

"Second, but certainly of equal
importance, we are establishing a
year-round educational program
along with the community ser-
vices program. Through this pro-
gram, we hope to carry at least
this message.
"It is within the capacity of the
Jewish people to chart its own
destiny That we. the Jewish
women of Pinellas County, do
make a difference in charting this

the quality of life of our needy,

"That's our role, and our

Dear Fellow Concerned Jew:
As newly-elected president of
the Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County. I am committed to follow
through and to build on the past
Presidents' achievements. Ac-
complishing this will assure a bet-
ter future for all Jews.
After all, the principles of car-
ing for our extended mishpocha
across the street and around the
world, have laid the cornerstone
of modern-day ethics for Jews and
non-Jews alike. My dilemma re-
mains how to explain to you as
President the meaning of involve-
ment in the Jewish Federation. As
a culture, we have never been
brighter, better educated or more
multi-dimensional people. We are
involved at many levels to help in-
dividual families and the society
we live in.
This is not a request for money.
It is. however, a request for com-
mitment and involvement.
The goals of our Federation are
numerous. We help Jews locally,
nationally and internationally. I
need everyone's help in building
the strength of our Federation so
that we achieve our important
goals. The bottom line is we
must help needy Jews.
Volunteers have been actively
meeting and setting up the 1986
campaign structure. The 1986
goal is $1,450,000. This is an in-
crease of $350,000 over 1985. It

iFor over two decades, leader-

been a concern of increasing
priority to the organized North
American Jewish Community.
Modern leadership programs
began to appear in the aftermath
of the dramatic events of
From the very onset, leadership
development programs filled a
two-part need: "They provided a
means by which key members of
the community were exposed to,
and actively involved in, Jewish
issues, thoughts and behaviors
and. they developed and trained
new leaders to carry out func-
tional goals within the federation
structures and Jewish community.
Leadership development pro-
grams continue to address
themselves to both of these impor-
tant communal needs: The need
for education and information
about the role of Jews as they
relate to others in the world, na-
tional and local communities: and
information and education about
the way they relate to their own
identity as Jews.

This, according to Dr. Lenore
Kopelovich. director of General
Studies, "Lets the children know
that we consider reading to be a
very important skill. The fact that

high regard. What we're finding is
that children are carrying over
their enjoyment of reading from
school to their houses."

We are grateful to the Jewish and Catholic writers who
have so generously shared their expertise on the topics
asked of them in this project.
These articles are not meant to answer all questions in
continuing relations between the two faith communities
but rather to raise points of dialogue. It must be
understood that in the beginning stages of discussion, each
side's perception of reality is very different. It is in ar-
ticulating these perceptions and in listening to the other's
perceptions that progress toward understanding is achiev-
ed. It is the purpose of this forum to present divergent
views with the hope that an increased knowledge of one
another will be a step toward the ideals of "mutual har-
mony and esteem" set forth in the "Nostra Aetate"
Why no Vatical
with State of |<
By Father Jerome Vereb, CP
Special Writer
VENICE A recent statement by
American ambassador to the Vatican,
William Wilson, highlighted the dialogue
between religion and diplomacy:
"Religion is a constant in the world of in-
ternational affairs because it is a constant
in the lives of men and women."
Mr. Wilson cited the examples of
religious motives as factors of diplomatic
exchange in the countries of Central and
South America, Northern Ireland, and
Iran. He did not mention what is perhaps
the most vivid of all 20th century in-
stances, that of Israel, the Middle
Eastern,nation which has stood for the
vitality of Jewish tradition in history. No
other country dramatizes more the need
to examine the place of religion in the
dialogue between nations in the post-
nuclear age.
Since the time of Vatican Council II, the
Roman Catholic Church has dealt with in-
ternational Jewish organizations and af-
fairs primarily througl its Commission
for Religious Relations with the Jews.
Headed by Cardinal Willebrands of the
Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Chris-
tian Unity, the daily business is conducted
by Argentinian Msgr. Jorge Mejia.
Msgr. Mejia stated that the Jewish af-
fairs are not limited to the State of Israel,
but that they might involve cases of anti-
Semitism in both Eastern Europe or the
United States. However, in general
Israel, despite claims to a secular style in
government, is viewed as the focal point

Catholic theology must deal with reality of Israel
By Rabbi Ira S. Youdovin
Special writer
Twenty years after the publication of
"Nostra Aetate," the Vatican's policies
toward Israel remain a thorn in Jewish-
Catholic relations.
Jews are both puzzled and somewhat
angered by the Church's refusal to
establish full diplomatic relations with
the Jewish Sfite, its ambiguous position
on Jewish rights in a united Jerusalem,
and its apparent softness of PLO ter-
rorism against Jewish civilians.
At a time of celebration, it might be
tempting to sweep this tension under the
rug. But evasion rarely accomplishes
anything good.
In 1967, as Jews and Catholics were still
basking in the warm afterglow of Vatican
II, dialogue almost died a-borning when
the Church remained silent in the face of
Arab genocidal threats against Israel,
reminding both Jews and Catholics that
the consequences of Vatican passivity
during the Holocaust could not be over-
come by the mere publication of a docu-
ment, no matter how helpful that docu-
ment might be and that it was
dangerously naive to think so.
But because Israel is a living reality, as
contrasted with the theological abstrac-
tions that are the substance of much
ecumenical dialogue, it has compelled
both parties to this dialogue to take a
closer, more realistic ..look at one
another. The results have been
Jews, for their part, have come to ap-
preciate the awesome political respon-
sibilty the pope faces as leader of a multi-
national polity which includes millions of

the potential threat of radical Arab ter-
rorism. While this cannot justify a papal
meeting with Yasir Arafat, it does help
soften Jewish disappointment over
aspects of the Vatican's Middle East
The Church has also responded
creatively. The 1975 "Guidelines and Sug-
gestions for Implementing Nostra
Aetate" urged Catholics to "strive to
learn by what essential traits Jews define
themselves in the light of their own
religious experience." In other words, to
understand the Jewish People's historic,
religious and emotional ties to Israel, and
to include these as a religious category in
the dialogue.
What lies ahead? Ironically (but
significantly), the Jewish perspective is
best articulated by a Catholic, the Rev.
Edward H. Flannery, who described
Israel as the "litmus test" in Jewish-
Catholic relations, challenging Catholics
to deal with the reality of a revitalized
Jewish People returning in strength to its
Homeland. Needless to say, this has enor-

Nostra Aetate," 1
Centuries of antagonism
What are implications
of 20 years of dialogue?
By Rabbi Jacob I.uski
Special Writer
Twenty years ago, in October of 1965,
Vatican Council II spent three years of
deliberations discussing the momentous
issues facing humankind and their
Church. To guide the Church toward the
future, they framed inspired documents,
committing Catholics to work for freedom
of belief, human rights, and universal
peace and justice. Emphasizing the
potential for a positive engagement with a
troubled world, the Church opened herself
to dialogue with all human communities.
Vatican Council II stirred the hopes not
only of Catholics but of persons of good
will the world over, for this was a unique
movement of spiritual and moral
Among those to whom the Church ex-
tended a hand of friendship were the
Jews. After nearly 20 centuries of tragic
antagonism, the bishops forcefully
repudiated the false teachings of anti-
Semitism and expressed appreciation for
the spiritual riches of the Jewish tradi-
tion. On Oct. 28, 1965, in the declaration,
"Nostra Aetate*" ("In Our Age..."), the
Church proclaimed:
"Since the spiritual patrimony common
to Christians and Jews is then so rich, the
Council wishes to foster and commend
mutual harmony and esteem. This will be
the fruit above all, of biblical and
theological studies and of brotherly
The declaration set the Church on a new
course. Tested by these succeeding 20
years, the declaration has inspired more
progress in Jewish-Catholic relations,
more "mutual harmony and esteem"
than was possible in the preceding 20
What "Nostra Aetate" brought about 20
years ago continues to transmit messages
of openness and of understanding and of
community. The signals grow stronger,
year by year, stronger and clearer,
despite lingering prejudice, terrorism
and our troubled memories.
It seems that 2,000 years of alienation,
the Holocaust, the birth of the State of
Israel, and 20 years of reflection were
needed to turn Catholic-Jewish relations
in the right direction. In 1975, the
"Guidelines and Suggestions for Im-
plementing the Conciliar Declaration
Nostra Aetate" were adopted. Another 10
years have passed and with great interest
we read of the forthcoming synod of the
Church, called on the 20th anniversary of
Vatican II. Who knows? Perhaps
Catholic-Jewish relations will also find
their place in the larger ecumenical
framework. It seems that every decade
further progress is made. That is not too
bad if we think that our previous en-
counters or absence of them were counted
in millennia.
The results of years of study, action,
mutual understanding and cooperation
among religious leaders, writers,
theologians, clergymen and lay people in
these 20 years are impressive. Yet I ask:
Have we done enough? Have we moved in
the right direction? Our efforts need to be
intensified as we seek new avenues of rap-
prochement, new ways to deepen
theological discussions in order to
enhance our respective religious
heritages, and to find new ways to
As children of the same God, as in-
heritors of the same biblical faith, we call
out to each other and ask, "Where are
you?" The world about us is dark.
Disaster, destruction, tyranny, brutality:
these have been and continue to be the
symptoms of our time. We need to bridge
the gap between the words we preach and
the lives that we live. We can all be saved
as long as our dialogue with God becomes
conversation with each other.
I commend to the broader community
of Catholics and Jews these ideals of
dialogue and respect. May our pursuit of
mutual understanding and cooperation be
an inspiration to the members of every
human community.

Nostra Aetate' good fruits, but slow to take root
By Father Harold B. Bumpus
Special writer
The declaration on the relationship of
the Catholic Church to non-Christian
religions ("Nostra Aetate"). framed by
Vatican Council II in October of 1965. has
served us now for 20 years. It stands as a
milestone in interfaith understanding and
activity, because it states in a formal and
permanent way the attitudes and stance
of the Catholic Church toward non-
Christian religions.
Nearly half of this document is given
over to a statement on Jewish-Christian
relations. Two thousand years of very bad
relations between Christians and Jews,
usually initiated by Christians, indicate
the necessity for this document.
The good fruits that have been reaped
from this statement are threefold:
1) A strong revulsion against bigotry.
prejudice, and hate cloaked in religious
la2?UAge better understanding of the
historical roots of Christianity in contem-
porary Judaism: and ,
3) The beginnings of shared prayer^o
thanks and praise, and the beginning of
regular dialogue that leads to mutual
understanding, replacing the old
polemics that separated and injured all
parties. The beginning of a free discus-
sion has led to the publication of several
series of books and articles on Jewish-
Christian relationships, all of excellent
quality in the "Stimulus" series, and all
of them contributing insights into our
common history.
Jews and Catholics are able to meet on
stable and unshifting ground for discus-
sion and service.
On the negative side, interaction and
dialogue have taken off to a very slow
start While historical studies and
theological reflection have much to offer,
and good joint programs such as those
sponsored by the National Conference of

Christians and Jews have given a
strong impetus to discussion, not enough
work has been done and not enough in-
terest and concern have been generated.
A reasonable mechanism does not yet ex-
ist for fostering continuing dialogue and
for sustaining interest. Catholic education
on the grass roots level, although distanc-
ing itself from hate and bigotry, does not
make an adequate effort to present real,
living Judaism to its learners. At the rate
we are going, Judaism is still going to be
the great unknown to the next generation.
While bigotry has diminished to a
phenomenal degree, but still lurks in dark
places, inertia is still with us and exer-
cises its crippling impact daily. Where
Christians and Jews are historically
separated, there is little interest in in-
vestigating each other. Inertia invites us
to let the unknown remain unknown.
In brief, what was achieved at Vatican
II, as monumental and inspiring as it was,
has not yet found its way into ordinary life
to anywhere near the degree it ought. We
need to build fires under ourselves and
our colleagues to inspire us so that the in-
ertia we all experience will be overcome
and the ideals and dreams of Vatican
Council II can take fuller shape in the af-
fairs of men and women.
