Many Soviet Jews have only one
hope contact with the outside
world, a world that will stand up
and be counted as they tell Soviet
officials that the presence of the
Soviet Jews is known and their
plight is being watched.
Imagine the impact that can be
made if the entire Pinellas Jewish
communities and their Christian
friends turn out for the rally and
each commits, at least, to write
one letter or send one telegram.

Soviet Jews.

ing, "Nobody cares. They gave a

Pinellas Jewish community to
stand up and be counted.

Soviet Jews is scheduled Monday,

The "Lion" is significantly sym-
bolized throughout Jewish
history. There are over 150
references to the lion in the Bible.
The tribes of Judah were com-
pared to a lion, and the mother ol
the kings of Judah was compared
to a lioness. The lion is seen fre-
quently in Jewish art and symbols
of the lion appear on Solomon s
Temple, menorahs, the mantles
covering the Torah scroll and the
Holy Ark.
Women who join the "Lion of

gold pin in the shape of a Lion of
Judah holding a seven-branched
menorah, and each successive

Profile: Jean and Julius Malkin
Super Sunday Chaircouple
Jean and Julius "Julie" Malkin
of Seminole have been appointed
chaircouple of Super Sunday
1986, Federation President Stan
Newmark announced recently.
"We are delighted to have the
Malkins heading this important
community effort. They share a
commitment to the Federation
and to the Jews in need that the
Federation serves wherever they
may be," Newmark said.
"I know that Jean and Julie are
counting on the cooperation and
support of the Jewish community,
and I'm sure they will not be
disappointed," Newmark
Super Sunday, scheduled for
Feb. 2, is the climax of the '86
Combined Jewish Appeal and will
bring together hundreds of
volunteers to conduct a day-long
Phone-a-thon to secure contribu-
tions for the Federation's annual
fund-raising drive.
The Federation conducts the
campaign yearly to raise money to
help Jews at home, in Israel and
around the world. The campaign
helps support the United Jewish
Appeal and local beneficiary agen-
cies such as the Jewish community
centers, Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service and the Jewish Day
Super Sunday annually gives a
lot of people a chance to really get
involved in helping their fellow
Jews," Jean says. "We're aiming
at exceeding last year's Super
Sunday campaign."
"Our goal is to have as many
Jews as possible working together
to help each other raise enough so
that no Jew in need will have to do
To do this the Federation has to
have enough money to meet the
needs of the beneficiary agencies,
the agencies whx> provide .the
m services.
Combined Jewish Appeals,
especially the upcoming appeal,
have a very special meaning to
"Julie" and Jean. They've seen
the need.
Soon after the couple moved
here from Cleveland, they made it
their business to listen and watch.
They took advantage of missions
and mini-missions touring Jewish
facilities and seeing the Jewish
programs in action. They saw the
Jews right here in Pinellas County
who are in need of housing, food
or medication.
Julie says he and Jean were so
impressed they tried influencing
others through "spontaneous con-
versations" only to find
"ourselves losing some friends."
That's understandable, Julie
v says. "The fact that we are a
growing community with so many
needs can be overwhelming for
some people. All the causes need
money and people wonder when it
K will all stop."
r The Malkins hope it doesn't
* Appeal campaigns are simply
evidence that the Jewish com-
munity here and elsewhere is
growing, the Malkins explain, and
that's the real perspective.
"We're insuring our existence and
Julius and Jean Malkin
that of Jewish generations to
"The Jews of this county can
stand up and be counted Super
Sunday," Julie said. "If everyone
will just give as his or her mode of
living will allow, the 'insurance'
willhf there when we need it."
Julius Malkin, grandson of a
rabbi, was born in Chicago in 1915
of parents who immigrated from
Russia. As he grew up in a non-
Jewish neighborhood in
Cleveland, Julie said his parents
"put ritual behind and
assimilated, but still believed 1
should get the necessary studies."
He attended Hebrew school, was
bar mitzvah and even taught Sun-
day School, but it wasn't until his
mid-forties that he began "to do
what my Jewish background
In Cleveland, Julie was in the
women's apparel business, retail-
ing and operating 13 stores and
hoisery plants, and-a hotel. His
main involvement* in Cleveland
were Histadrut (the Labor arm of
Israel) and the Workman's Circle.
It was at the Workman's Circle
that Julie, a widower, met Jean
who was secretary of the
Workman's Circle.
Jean was born in Cleveland. Her
father was Dr. Milton Suzik, a
founder of Community Temple
(Beth Am), a conservative con-
gregation, "about 50 years ago."
Jean says her father's influence
was "Jewishly natural," and she
was involved in Temple as a young
child. "But I only felt my
Jewishness at Temple."
Like Julie, she was previously
married. She has two grown
daughters and Julie has three
children, all of whom "unfor-
'tunately" live away from their
retired parents.
The Malkins were married in
1979, and that year traveled to
Israel and moved to Pinellas. The
trip to Israel was a big turning
point for Jean.
"The experience of being sur-
rounded by Jews where Jews are
not a minority left no doubt about
the responsibility that I have as a
Jew a responsibility to make a
difference Jewishly."
Together the Malkins have
dedicated themselves to making a
difference. In addition to their in-
volvement in Federation, they co-
chair the Caring Committee of
Temple B'nai Israel in Clearwater
and belong to various other
Jewish organizations. Both Jean
and Julie are Federation board
members and Jean also serves as
vice-president of education for the
Federation's Women's Division.
Nursing Homes to be Surveyed
The Human Relations Commit-
tee of the Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County is currently
surveying local nursing homes to
identify the number of Jewish
residents in an effort to better
serve this, too often neglected
segment of our community.
While there are currently more
than 70 nursing homes in Pinellas
County in which Jews reside on
short or long-term basis, it is not
known whether there are 70 or
700 Jewish nursing home
residents, said Joe and Elaine
Stern, chaircouple of the
"In order to provide adequate
coverage for nursing home visita-
tions, we need to identify by an
average count, the number of
Jews that are residing in nursing

homes." said the Sterns.
To complete this study, the
Federation Human Relations
Committee has enlisted the help
of Pinellas County's synagogues
and temples, dividing up the list of
nursing homes among the con-
gregations' human relations
"We are asking that each
human relations committee make
bi-monthly calls to the nursing
homes on their list to identify the
number of Jews residing in
them." the Sterns said.
Once the study is completed, the
Sterns said they will have a better
idea of the needs for on-going nur-
sing home visitations.
The Federation's Human Rela-
tions Committee also has been ac-
tively involved in coordinating
other volunteer assistance efforts
including in-home and hospital
visitation to Pinellas County
"We strongly encourage each

Committe recognize the need for
In-Home visitations," the Sterns
said. "There are many Jews in
Pinellas County who are alone and
in need of a friendly visitor."
In-Home visitations can also be
helpful in identifying other needs
of these people and getting them
in contact with Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service and other agencies
that can provide help, the Sterns
'Memo From
The President
CHOICE Choice is a frequently
used word in our language. We
give it no more or less attention
than other ordinary words.
In reflection I believe it is a
key, decisive word, and it is a
word full of challenge and excite-
ment and responsibility.
Think about it. For centuries,
even millenia, Jews have strugled
around the world, drifted from
place to place, vainly seeking a
spot where they would be
welcome. Except for brief so-
journs here and there, this search
never materialized.
Our people, our ancestors,
never had a Choice. They were not
able to live freely where they
wished to live, and could only
reside where they were tolerated.
They could not freely observe
their precious heritage, their
sacred and traditional religion,
with the openness they desired.
Truly, they existed through the
forebearance of their captors.
Finally, in the Nineteenth and
early Twentieth Centuries, they
had a Choice. In great numbers
they migrated to the new world,
the land of freedom America.
We in free America, enjoying
the precious privilege of living as
free Jews, are here because our
ancestors made the Choice of
seeking freedom in the new land.
What about the millions whose
ancestors did not make the Choice
to migrate? Sadly, most of them
have perished in the furnaces of
Nazi brutality or are held as vir-

This is the second program of-

The Dec. 8 program will have a

The couple moved to Seminole
in 1973 and have been active
members of the Temple and the
Jewish community ever since.
Prior to moving to Pinellas. the
couple lived for a time in Fort
Polk. La.. an area, as Marilyn
describes it. where there were "no
bagels for hundreds of miles." For
sure Fort Polk, where Allan was

quite a change for two people who

Although Allan, a radiologist
who received his medical degree
from State University of New
York, has planned to open a prac-
tice in New Jersey, the couple
decided they couldn't go back
north to the cold winters. Still, br-
inging up a family in Pinellas
County has been a sharp contrast
to their experiences growing up in
a predominantly Jewish area.
However. Marilyn and Allan have
taken a potentially negative ex-
perience and turned into a
positive one.
"Our children have developed a
much stronger Jewish identity
than Marilyn or I ever had living
in New York." Allan said. "We
took being Jewish for granted.
Due to the fact that we are such a
minority here, our children think
about what it means to be Jewish
every day."
The fact that Marilyn and Allan
have become leaders in the young
Jewish community may have
something to do with their
children's strong Jewish identity.
The Katz's have been active
members of Temple B'nai Israel
since their arrival in Seminole.
Their two daughters. Susan, 16,
and Elizabeth, 15, became Bat
Mitzvahs, attended Confirmation
Classes and now work as teacher's
assistants at the Temple School.
Marilyn feels that in a small
Jewish community as ours, it is
extremely important to support
numerous Jewish organizations,
although it is impossible to be in-
volved in everything.
"Every Jewish organization has
value they are all important in a
different way," she said.
Marilyn is a past president of
the National Council of Jewish
Women, Suncoast Section. She
serves on the Board of Directors

Allan has always been very com-
mitted and involved in the Federa-
tion. "The Federation is a very ef-
ficient fund-raising mechanism,"
he said. "It ensures that a large
number of worthwhile Jewish ac-
tivities here, and abroad, will con-
tinue. The Federation is only as
important as the agencies it sup-
ports, and 1 like the agencies that

Dr. and Mrs. Alfred Schick,
chair of the event, announced that
revenues for the dinner and ad
book totalled approximately
$52,000, which will help defray
the operating expenses of The
Golda Meir Center.
An additional appeal was made
at the dinner for a new van.
Charles Rutenberg stated the
importance of this additional re-
quest for money:
"The Golda Meir Center has an
increased demand for services
from all parts, North and South of
Pinellas County. We have a com-
mitment to our senior citizens to
help them enjoy nutritional meals
and enrichment activity. At this
point, transportation, which we
depend on through The Neighbor-
ly Senior Services, has been cut
back due to lack of governmental
support. Thus, we are raising
money for an additional van so
that we may supplement our
members' transportation needs.
Eight thousand dollars has been
collected for the van and pledges
are coming to the center daily."

There's a new candle on the

Many holidays ago. Kindl wa.
searchmg through the calendar
and found a very puzzling holiday
in December, a festival which
iasts eight days and nights
Oh. he thought, eight wonderful
days in which to celebrate, and
when he saw the box with so many
candles in it, he hopped in with the
other IB.
Reluctant to participate. Kindl
watched the celebration night
after night and learned the mean-
ing of each candle from the talk-
ing Me no rah.
Finally, on the eighth day he
was awakened by a hearty Good
Morning from the Menorah. Kindl
thought since it was the eighth
night, he wanted to help. The rest
of the candles decide to make this
Kindl's night and let him be the
shamus to light the whole
Menorah for courage. The story
ends with Kindl's own surprise

In a recent article "An Alert to
the Effects of Stress," we outlin-
ed the psychological and physical
effects which can result from be-
ing stressed both negative
events like illness or positive
events like being promoted.
We also pointed out that these
events are stressors, not the
stress. Your response to these
events constitutes stress and
while some stress is good and
helpful, too much stress becomes
distress. We concluded that it is
essential to reduce the stress in
one's life, not only for the greatest
enjoyment of life, but also as a
way to a healthier life.
The following suggestions for
reducing stress can be effective if
used regularly.
1. Stop blaming outside events
for your tension and anxiety and
accept responsibility for your own
interpretation of those events. Ac-
cept events as unpleasant, in-
convenient or undesirable, but
eliminate condemning, deman-
ding or labeling events as "awful"
or a "catastrophe." Stop building
things up into something much
greater than they are. By chang-
ing our beliefs we will feel much
better even though the events
themselves may not have changed
at all.

There was some fierce, but friendly campaigning for student
council offices over at the Pinellas County Jewish Day School
recently. President was won by seventh-grader Bryna Blanchard
of Sarasota. Among her goals is to start a Hebrew/English School
newspaper. What a terrific idea!
Winning the vice presidency was Todd Pardoll, of St.
Petersburg, also in seventh grade. His campaign pledges included
working for longer lunch periods and more field trips. He says
he'll take his case to school Principal, Mark Silk. Go get em
Also elected to the student council, which meets once a week
under the direction of staff member, Peggy Martinus, were
fourth grade representatives Missy Pardoll and Adam Robyak;
fifth grade representatives Inbal Kedar and Stacie Lynn; and
middle school representative Jodi Newman.
You would have thought you were in Hawaii if you had happen-
ed to stop at Menorah Manor the other day when residents, staff
and volunteers joined together for a special "Sharing Day."
Helen Vitt gave he residents a hula lesson prior to a kosher
style Hawaiian luncheon and a costume contest. Winners of the
contest were: Ida Cutler, best dressed resident; Helen Vitt, for
the volunteers andKenneth Kelly and Stephanie Williams for
the staff.
The afternoon entertainment included a special skit by Menorah
Manor bookkeeper, Debbie Martin and Housekeeping Director
Bob Weatherwax. The day culminated with a professional hula
dancer, Dolly McKay.

theast of Tel Aviv and was used as
a settlement center for Asian and

Techniques for Dealing With Stress

Continued from Page 5
2. Get your priorities straight
and do not give things more im-
portance than they deserve. Stop
spending $10 worth of energy on a
10 cent problem. Invest your time
and energy in things that are real-
ly important and that provide
lasting pleasure.
3. Practice relaxation exercises
two or three times a day. This
takes only about 10 minutes each
time and consists of finding a com-
fortable place to sit and close your
eyes, take a couple of deep
breaths and guide a sense of relax-
ation down your body from the top
of your head to the tips of your
toes. Spend some time thinking
how you want to proceed with
your day, meditate, enjoy a blank
mind momentarily, then open
your eyes and continue your
routine. It is amazing how
refreshing these few moments out
of your day can be.
4. Adults tend to get too serious
about life and forget the power of
play to reenergize and stimulate

one's mind and body. Make a list
of 10 things that are play for you,
one half of which must cost less
than $5. Begin to use your list to
play for one hour each day. You
will find it hard to make up such a
list but once completed you will
find it one of the most helpful
things you have done.
5. Physical exercise is one of the
best distressors when combined
with the items listed above.
Choose a form of exercise you like
or you will be unable to stay with
it. Before starting any exercise
program consult your physician
regarding the proper amount of
exercise for your physical

The B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tion, responding to numerous re-
quests from faculty and staff at
the University of South Florida
has established a Havurah for the
adult population of the university
communities of the Greater Tam-
pa Bay area.
This Havurah, open to adult
non-faculty members of the com-
munity as well, will be affiliated
with the Reconstructionist
Accordng to Hillel director Rab-
bi Steven Kaplan, "The over-
whelming majority of requests
were for Reconstructionist affilia-
tion. If others wish a Havurah
with any other affiliation, we'll ac-
commodate as well."
Rabbi Kaplan sees the Havurah
as a means for unaffiliated Jews
to join together for prayer and
study, and even those affiliated
members to share with the group
if they wish.
"Our Havurah is no substitute
for a synagogue, but rather, a
complement. We offer no services
of any sort for children, no men's
club, no sisterhood. Just a classic
version of the Havurah of the
