Mond: Pinellas Can Make The Difference
Herb Schwartz, recently ap-
pointed chairman of the Pinellas
County Jewish Federation's Pro-
ject Renewal Campaign, has a
special place in his heart for Tel
Mond. Israel.
Tel Mond is the distressed com-
munity that Pinellas County.
along with Sarasota and unaf-
filiated counties, is assisting
under the Project Renewal pro-
ject. Tel Mond is not just a name
for Schwartz, he has been there.
Schwartz was a member of the
Pinellas mission that surveyed the
Project Renewal program last Oc-
tober and visited Tel Mond.
"They were very friendly and
went all out to be nice to us,"
Schwartz remembers. "The kids
were there waving American and
Israeli flags. It was very
Also toucning, Schwartz said,
were the needs that were obvious,
but also the fact that Tel Mond
people were really committed to
trying to help themselves.
Tel Mond is just one of the Pro-
ject Renewal communities, but
the commitment to help
themselves is characteristic of all
the Project Renewal communities.
Until recent years, the com-
munities and their inhabitants,
mostly African and Asian Jews,
were the forgotten or bypassed
communities of Israel.
The communities knew as Israel
was in the throes of statehood and
funds or organization was
available to help the inhabitants
assimilate into the Israeli culture.
Instead, the inhabitants simply
existed in enclaves continuing
centuries-old cultures they
transplanted to Israel, without
ever becoming truly involved in
Israel or becoming Israeli.
Now their time has come. Today
over 400,000 people throughout
Israel are directly included in Pro-
ject Renewal programs, and more
than 600,000 are indirectly af-
fected. Before the project is com-
pleted, 20 percent of the popula-
tion of Israel will have been touch-
ed by the project.
The partnership between Israel
and clusters such as the Pinellas
support cluster, spearheaded by
the local Federation, have made
possible the construction, enlarge-
ment or renovation of 224 com-
munity and neighborhood centers,
49 sports installations, 91 early
childhood facilities, 14 health
facilities and 41 facilities for the
Each year 5,000 adults study

classes so they can understand
their governmental system and
work through it to help
themselves. In addition, special
educational and vocational pro-
grams are giving a second chance

and dangerous. Of pa^ularr

The planning for the 54th
General Assembly (GA) of the
Council of Jewish Federations
(CJPS) to be held in Washington,
D.C. from Nov. 13-17 shifted into
high gear last week as the CJF
Board held its quarterly meeting
in New York City.
This year's GA may be the big-
gest ever, attracting more than
3,500 delegates from 215 Jewish
communities in the U.S., Canada
and Mexico. A large contingent of
Israelis is expected to attend, in-
cluding Prime Minister Shimon
Peres, who will address the
plenary on Thursday evening,
Nov. 14.
President Reagan also has been
invited, but may have to decline
because of the scheduled Summit
Conference with Soviet Leader
Mikhail Gorbachev in Geneva the
week after the GA. Many high-
level administration officials and
numerous members of Congress
however, will be in attendance.
The location of the GA in the na-
tion's capital will afford the
organized Jewish community an
opportunity to publicize and
vocalize issues of concern to
North American Jewry.
The National Committee for
Leadership Development is plann-
ing to dispatch 125 Young Leader-
ship teams of 3-5 people each to
various organizations that have
their national headquarters in
Washington in a massive educa-
tion and lobbying effort on behalf
of Soviet Jewry. In light of the
pending Summit Conference, the
success of this education and lob-
bying effort could have substan-
tial impact on the issue of Jewish
emigration from the Soviet Union.
The theme for the GA is "The
Coming of Age of North
American Jewry: Strengthening
our Jewish Affirmation." Dr.
Jonathan Woocher, nationally
known Professor of Hebrew
Studies at Brandeis University,
will be the scholar-in-residence.
This theme is particularly ap-
propriate for the West Central
Florida community. Pinellas
County is becoming a major
Jewish center in the state of
Florida and is coming of age. As
the dual problems of services and
funding become increasingly com-
plex, we must deal with them in a
more mature, sophisticated man-
ner than we have in the past. The
GA is the place where we can
learn how to deal with these pro-
blems more effectively and to
meet new people from com-
munities around the nation who
share our goals. The GA affords
us an opportunity to demonstrate
the vitality and depth of the
Pinellas County Jewish communi-
ty to our co-federationists around
the country. Most of all the GA is
a source of great personal

Pinellas Women Dig
For Jewish History In Galilee
What are three nice Jewish
girls from Pinellas County doing
in a place like that?
That place is Sepphoris in the
lower Galilee in Israel and the
three "girls" are Ah Goidenfarb,
Jan Bragin and Joan Keller, all
from the Clearwater area, who
participated in an archaeological
dig for four weeks this past
Sepphoris was an ancient town
famous for its Third-Century
Talmodk community and as the
place where the Mishnah was cor-
related. The 600-acre site was
surveyed as an excavation project
in 1982, sounded in 1983 and fur-
ther surveyed in 1984. This past
summer's expedition was the first
full-scale excavation.
What prompted the women to
pay for the privilege of rising at 4
a.m.. working eight hours a day
then washing pottery sherds in
the late afternoon and dozing dur-
ing the evening seminars?

A model of his monument, 'Brotherhood of Man,' w presented by
world-famous sculptor Nathan Rapoport (left), to Joseph
Handleman, national chairman of American Red Magen David
for Israel The finished sculpture will be located in the Joseph and
Sally Handleman Plaza, in front of the new MDA National Blood
Service Center in Ramat Gan, Israel. American Red Magen
David Adorn for Israel will raise most of the $12 million for con-
struction of the new MDA Blood Service Center.
Sculptor Nathan Rapoport
Commissioned To Create
Monument For Israel
NEW YORK World-famous
sculptor, Nathan Rapoport, will
create "Brotherhood of Man," a
monument to be located in the
Joseph and Sally Handleman
Plaza, in front of the new Magen
David Adorn National Blood Ser-
vice Center, which is presently
under construction in Ramat Gan,
Israel. The sculpture, which sym-
bolizes man's humanity to his
fellow man, was commissioned by
Joseph Handleman, national
chairman of the American Reg
Magen David for Israel.
Handleman said that the
sculpture will "mark the entrance
to the MDA's new Blood Service
Center, which will make use of the
most advanced scientific equip-
ment in the world for fractiona-
tion of blood into its components
and for blood storage. This ultra-
modem facility," he said, "will
serve Israel's normal peacetime
needs, as well as keep a reserve of
blood in stock for any emergencies
which may arise."
Nathan Rapoport has enriched
the world by creating such
sculptures as "The Warsaw Ghet-
to Uprising," located in Warsaw;
"The Scroll of Fire," in
Jerusalem; "Job," in Israel's Yad
Vashem; "Monument to the Six
Million Jewish Martyrs," in
Philadelphia, and "Liberation," in
New Jersey.
His monument, "Brotherhood
of Man," symbolizes the work of
Magen David Adorn, since MDA
blood services are available to
every man, woman and child in
Israel, regardless of race, creed or
Handleman said that American
Red Magen David for Israel,
which has 159 chapters
throughout the United States, will
raise most of the $12 million re-
quired to build the new Blood Ser-
vice Center. He said that the
Center is scheduled for comple-
tion in December, 1986.
a master's degree from the
University of South Florida in
Tampa, was returning for her
eighth season as part of the staff
of the Sepphoris Project. She has
worked with a team at the site for
the past four years under the
direction of Dr. James F. Strange,
dean of the College of Arts and
Letters at USF, and interna-
tionally known archaeologists.
Jan, a graduate of Emory
University, was working in the
Clearwater area when she took a
class in biblical archaeology that
Joan was teaching for USF. That
seemed to re-kindle a spark of in-
terest that was already there and
with a little encouragement she
joined the Sepphoris group.
"After the first two days, I
thought I had made a mistake,"
Jan said recently, "but by the end
of the first week, I was sure I
hadn't." In fact, she plans to join
the group again next summer.
Ali, a junior at Clearwater High
at the time, was one of the
youngest among the 53 staff and
volunteer team members. Special
permission had to be sought
before she could go since the age
limit is usually 18 or senior status
in high school. Permission was
granted and she joined a team
whose ages ranged from 14 to 72
with most volunteers being older.
Ali said she had had an interest
in anthropology and archaeology'
and hoped the experience would
help her decide if archaeology-
might be a possible career choice.
Now she will smile when you
mention chocolate jam, a regular
treat served at 8:30 a.m. as the se-
cond breakfast brought to the
field by camp manager Carolyn
Strange. She said she thought the
summer would be an interesting
experience, but she didn't realize
she would have so much fun. "The
mixture of people and the humor
in the field kept everybody work-
ing when you felt you couldn't lift
another bucket of dirt," she said.
"A dig is actually a micro-
culture," Mrs. Keller said, ex-
plaining that the "team" is made
up of people from different parts
of the country and, sometimes,
the world, with different
backgrounds and religions who
blend together in the daily eat.
sleep, work, laugh and sing
routine of a dig.
The three Pinellas women, all
members of Temple B'nai Israel in
Clearwater, were just about the
only Jewish members of the team.
"Jews usually view archaeology
intellectually. Not that many want
to net into the field." Mrs. Keller
said. "There've l>een studies that
have shown it's partly liecause
Jews know where they come
On the other hand, she said, the
fundamentalist Christians are
very involved in archaeological
digs in Israel.
For example, she said, there is a
group looking for the "ashes of
the red heifer," an animal used in
biblical times for sacrificial pur-
poses and certain fundamentalist
Christians believe their messiah
cannot return unless Jerusalem is
firmly in the hands of Jews, the
Temple restored and the ashes'*
placed in the Temple.

Volume 6 Number 22
King Hussein of Jordan had
many optimists believing he was
moving closer to negotiating
peace with Israel. Not only did he
make encouraging sounds when
he visited Washington recently,
but he also agreed with Britain's
Margaret Thatcher that it was the
PLO's fault the proposed meeting
with a combined Jordanian-PLO
delegation had to be cancelled in
the last minute.
But after Premier Shimon
Peres made a strong appeal at the
UN to declare an end to the state
of war between Israel and Jordan
as a preliminary step to peace
talks, Hussein was quick to refuse
to follow suit. He insists on the
Soviet concept of an international
conference at which the Soviets
and the PLO would play a major
role which is a transparent way
of saying Jordan will talk peace on
its own terms, with the prior
assurance that Israel can be
pressured to make all the conces-
sions the Arabs want.
It was somewhat less
transparent, perhaps, but never-
theless sufficiently obvious, that
Hussein's "positive" talk in the
U.S. was aimed at facilitating the
proposed arms sale, not at peace
with Israel.
Despite the official state of war,
Israel and Jordan have had no
military conflict for the past 15
years. But Hussein made a pact
with Arafat and the PLO last
February, permitting the latter to
reestablish itself in Jordan (which
is 60 percent Palestinians) and
the result has been an upsurge of
terrorist activities many of which
were planned in and directed from
Jordan, alone, does not pose a
threat to Israel, at present.
However, there is little doubt
that, as on three occasions in the
past, it would join other Arab
states in a concerted attack should
the opportunity arise. The risk of
this grows in direct proportion
with Jordan's military strength.
Delivery of sophisticated
weapons such as those requested
by Jordan would hurt the peace
process, rather than help it. It
would give the Arabs a signal that
stubbornness is rewarded and the
U.S. will eventually "come
around." It would also weaken the
national unity government in
Israel, by reducing the country's
margin of security and lending
weight to its hawks' arguments
that Israel cannot permit itself to
negotiate out of weakness. It
would also weaken Israel
economically as it makes efforts to
maintain the military balance.
The administration describes
the package as necessary for Jor-
dan's defense against a potential
threat from Syria. The latter,
however, supports the sale to Jor-
dan. The two are currently in a
process of reconciliation, and in
the case of a concerted Arab
military expedition against Israel
would have no trouble
cooperating. In 1973. although
Jordan was not prepared to
engage Israel directly, she sent an
armored division to the Golan
Heights to support Syrian
fighting against Israel.
Jordan has been a major
weapons purchaser in the world
for the past few years. Between
1981 and 1983 it spent over
$3-biIlion on arms imports -
$1.1-billion in 1983 alone, makinf
it the world's seventh largest im-
porter of arms, (lrau and Saudi
Arabia were ranked first and se-
cond; Israel ranked 26th.) It pur
chased weapons from France.

as well as from the I'SSR. Only
several weeks ago it ordered more
than $300-million of arms from
Great Britain. But it is most con-
venient for Jordan to make an
arms deal with the TS not only
because of qualitative superiority;

Is The Name of The Game
The ladies' auxiliaries of the
Abe Ader Post No. 246 and Paul
Serenky Post No. 409 once again
demonstrated their dedication to
the dual tradition of service and
tzedakah. As in the past, their
generosity made it possible for
Gulf Coast Jewish Family Service
to distribute food baskets to
families who otherwise might not
have been able to enjoy and
celebrate the High Holy Days.
The recipients were most
grateful to have received such an
array of food, including chicken
(such delicious soup!), challah,
gefilte fish, horseradish, honey,
apples, cookies and other foods
with which to grace their holiday
Since more and more people in
our community are feeling the ef-

government services, requests to
Gulf Coast Jewish Family Service

give of their time and efforts to
this worthwhile project.

one difference. Israel's continued

he would add Cairo.

3 Terrorists Reported Killed
In Attack on Radio Station
terrorists, a local worker and a
South Lebanon Army (SLA)
soldier were killed in South
Lebanon last week when a gang of
four men attacked the American
missionary-owned and operated
"Voice of Hope" radio and televi-
sion station near El Khiam bet-
ween Marjayoun and the Israel
border in the security zone.
Four men with explosives on
their backs estimated to have
been about 100 kilograms at-
tacked the buildings. One of them
managed to place his charge near
the radio station building. In the
explosion that followed the station
was completely destroyed along
with its equipment. The radio sta-
tion continued to broadcast from a
temporary small studio in Mar-
jayoun, using reserve equipment.
The nearby television studios
were not damaged, and transmis-
sions are continuing.
THE FOUR men approached
the building, throwing hand
grenades. A 55-year-old wat-
chman shot one of the attackers
and was himself shot and killed by
the attackers. A nearby SLA post
opened fire, apparently hitting the
remaining three terrorists and
setting off the explosives they car-
ried on their bodies. One of the
SLA men was killed in the ex-
change of fire.

The Torah gives the name
Woman of Valor to show the great
respect and appreciation for the
work that women do. In addition
to the duties outlined in the Torah
such as Shabbot Candles, Mikva
(family purity), and Tithe
(Challah). the woman of the house
cleans, cooks, does laundry and
ironing, collects coupons, plays
mom, coach, chauffer, etc. All of
these responsibilities are
recognized and applauded by the
Torah, for it is the woman of the
house who ensures the genera-
tions of tomorrow.
The purpose of this club is to be
a source of information and in-
spiration to the Jewish women of
Pinellas County. We will attempt
to cover a variety of topics of in-
terest and concern.
The Woman of Valor club is part
of a network of national and inter-
national Chabad women's groups
called N'shei Chabad. This
organization of thousands of
women meeting coast to coast and
around the world, is planning a
winter convention in Milwaukee,
WI in January. Further details as
they are available will be passed
on to you.
The classes will vary depending
on the topic of the day. At times
we will have a short presentation
and a group discussion. At other
times, we will have a photocopy of
a text which we will cover line by
line in English (and sometimes in
Hebrew and English) as we learn
the meaning of each word (for
each word in the Torah has as
special meaning). Knowledge of
Hebrew is not a necessity!

How To Live A Better Life
Every human being faces
ultimate spiritual questions that
only religion can answer:
Who am I? What is the purpose
of my life? How shall I lead an
ethical existence?
The way we answer these
religious questions often spells the
difference between a happy suc-
cessful life on one hand and
misery on the other. If we honest-
ly take a hard look at our failures
they are a result of misguided
religious priorities. We muddle
through life thinking that a new
material item will bring the hap-
piness we desperately seek. Then,
if we are lucky, some event or just
plain frustration makes us stop
and evaluate who we are and what
we truly "own."
It may be hard to believe but we
could possess every desired
material thing: houses, cars,
boats, etc. and still be miserable.
As one very wealthy person said
"Being rich is not what it promis-
ed to be." Or we could live a quiet
modest life and feel totally fulfill-
ed. We achieve the latter by
answering those relij

A telephone contact, of course,
is rare. Letters and mail contact
are more common. Or even just a
mention and a thought at local
services here. Whatever the
method, a "twin" during the
Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony is an
important way of reaching out to
our Jewish brothers and sisters in
the USSR and tell them they are
not forgotten.

tion on the Russian twinning pro-

On the weekend of Nov. 8, Con-

Student Shabbat weekend. This
special event is one of a number of
programs designed to celebrate
the Seminary's 100th Birthday.
Rabbi Jacob Luski explained
that the purpose of the weekend is
to bring the Seminary and its
message into communities across
the country. More than 70
students will be participating in
similar programs this weekend.
Congregation B'nai Israel is
most pleased to have been
selected from the over 1,000 Con-
servative eonnregations around
the country to participate in this
special weekend. At Friday even-
ing services. Nov. 8, Clifford

gregation. He will also provide

are participation with youth and,
in particular, USY-ers.
