ADL Applauds Convictions In Pinellas KKK Case
The convictions of two Pinellas
Ku Klux Klansmen for violating a
state law banning paramilitary
training has been hailed by the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
A national ADL spokesman said
the convictions were the first jury
convictions based on the state
law. The ADL devised the model
statute on which the law was
Justin J. Finger, director of
ADL's national Civil Rights Divi-
sion in New York, said Pinellas
law enforcement officials deserve
commendation for the successful
prosecution of Fred Giovinazzo
and Paul Flexon for engaging in
commando training and learning
to make incendiary devices so
they could incite race riots and
harass minorities.
The two now face maximum
sentences of five years in prison
and a $5,000 fine.
Five defendants originally were
involved in the case. So far, none
of the five has received the max-
imum sentence allowed by law.
A third defendant was acquitted
on the testimony of witnesses who
said he attended less than 20 per-
cent of the Klan meetings and was
not actively involved in those he
did attend.
Two other defendants earlier
entered plea bargains with one
receiving five years probation and
the other two years of house ar-
rest and three years of probation.

Over 200 members of the Jewish community participated in the Annual Meeting at the Belleview Biltmore Hotel
Annual Meeting Tremendous Success
Accepting the Challenge
Is Jewish Way Of Life
"The entire Jewish world does
not rise and fall on Federation.
There's a big Jewish world out
there outside Federation."
Those were the worlds of annual
meeting guest Speaker Shoshana
Cardin, president of the Council of
Jewish Federations words she
says are a favorite expression of
hers, but sometimes called heresy
for a person in her position.
The key, though, is that federa-
tions are the one group that exists
to bring the diverse parts of the
Jewish community together for
the betterment of all, she said.
"In the Jewish community, we
have Federations, temple com-
munities and the communities
centered around membership in
Jewish organizations," she said.
"It is Federation's responsibility
to help develop leadership and br-
ing the diverse elements
Mrs. Cardin explained that
Federation is really a movement
with the idea being thousands of
years old. Federation's first
responsibility was to be the group
responsible for fund-raising to pay
for the various services the Jewish
community locally and abroad
needed. Over the years, the
responsibility for growth and
planning was added as Federation
became the obvious branch suited
for the task.
Now the added charge is to help
develop leadership throughout the
Jewish community and establish
priorities for the entire communi-
ty, she said.
The mobility of the Jewish com-
munity causes new problems she
said, and federations in the South,
such as Pinellas, are now facing
them as Jews move South.
"We must identify the unaf-
filiated," she said. "Until they are
affiliated they are lost to us."
Why? "We are a decreasing peo-
ple. Our birth rate is the lowest in
the country. Many of our children
are choosing not to marry," she
"We are different, not better
but different," she said. "We col-
lectively at Mount Sinai accepted
as a community the charge to
move humanity forward."
"It's not easy to be Jewish to-
day," Mrs. Cardin said, but
"... To make the world a better
place to live for all is the Jewish
responsibility and Federation's
goal," she said.
Soviet Jewry
Mrs. Cardin asked Pinellas
Jews to watch for more informa-
tion on plans for a one-day rally in
Washington during upcoming
Summit talks. Plans are for
100,000 U.S. Jews to be on hand
to focus attention on the plight of
Soviet Jews. "When the call
comes be ready. They are

Campaign Total So Far: $1,117,000 '86-87 Allocations Made
Recommendations from the
Federation's Budget, Planning
and Allocation Committee for
dispersal of funds raised in the '86
Combined Jewish Appeal Cam-
paign have been approved by the
Federation's Executive Commit-
tee and its board of directors.
The allocations are based on a
campaign total of $1,117,000.
Although the campaign is not
over, that is the amount raised so
far, short of the hoped for
$1,450,000 goal.
Campaign funding is the sole
revenue producing source
available for the local Federation
and other Federations nationwide
as they aim to meet the basic
needs of Jews locally, in Israel and
The Budget, Planning and
Allocation Committee under the
Leonard Selignan
leadership of Leonard Seligman
came up with its recommenda-
tions after several meetings in-
cluding a final marathon five-hour
session as the committee strived
to make the best possible use of
each dollar raised.
Serving with Seligman on the
committee were Federation board
members Sidney Albert, Elihu
Berman, David Bowman, Rabbi
Kenneth Bromberg, Roland Fox,
Elisa Greenberg, Emanuel Har-
ris, Dr. Allan Katz, Reva Kent,
Larry Krug, Irwin Miller, Stanley
Newmark, Scott Nicoletti, Loren
Pollack, Charles Rutenberg,
Suzanne Schechter, Edie
Seligman and Sidney Werner.
"On the negative side, we are
short of the $1,450,000 goal,"
Federation president Stanley
Newmark said, "but on the
positive side we are above the
$1,100,000 raised in the "85
"Leonard Seligman and the
committee are to be com-
plimented. They did a terrific job
trying to spread every dollar out.
They've made every dollar
Federation officials still are
hopeful that the campaign total
will move closer to the $1,450,000
goal before the campaign ends.
The $1,450,000 goal had been set
as the bare-bones amount
necessary if Pinellas is to accept
its fair-share responsibility of
helping meet worldwide Jewish
needs and adequately meet grow-
ing local needs.
"It's still not too late to pledge
or increase your pledge,"
Newmark said. "We're still hop-

Memo from the President Upcoming Legislative Seminar Expanded

"If you will it, it is no dream."
That is what Theodor Herzl wrote
on the frontpiece of his novel Old
New Land, his description of the
future Jewish state.
Herzl wrote his book in 1902,
two years before his death at 44.
When he died, Herzl's dream of a
Jewish state was no more than
that. Certainly there were Jewish
settlements throughout the land.
Jerusalem already had a Jewish
majority. Nevertheless, the land
itself was under Turkish
sovereignty and the Turks had no
intention of giving it up.
Herzl did his best. He
negotiated with the Turks, the
Germans, the Russians, the
Italians, the British and even the
Pope but to no avail. No one
except the Jews wanted to see
the Holy Land in the hands of its
original inhabitants. At Herzl's
death, he appeared a failure. Or,
to put it more positively, just a
Today, 82 years after Herzl's
death, we celebrate Israel's 38th
anniversary of statehood. The
state of Herzl's dreams is as real
as any other. It certainly has real
problems. There are the problems
of peace and war, of terrorism, of
a weak economy. There are ten-
sions (and, let's face it, deep
animosities) between religious and
non-religious Israelis and between
those of Afro-Asian backgrounds
and those from Europe. Israel is
certainly not one big happy
And yet the dream of Israel is
infinitely more important than the
Sroblems. It 1b there. Four million
ews live there (in contrast to the
600,000 who lived there in 1948).
They speak Hebrew, a language
that even Herzl considered to be
Stanley Newmark
as "dead" as Latin. They live,
love, and argue in the one place on
earth where they are not a minori-
ty, a minority sometimes
tolerated and sometimes not.
Israel is also there for Jews who
do not choose to live there. All
Jews stand, to some degree,
under Israel's protective um-
brella. It is that umbrella that
covered Anatoly Shcharansky and
the Ethiopian Jews and brought
about their freedom in Israel. But
it is not only oppressed Jews who
benefit from Israel's existence
and its vigilance. It is all Jews.
Even those who are indifferent to
Israel have to know that Israel is
not indifferent to them.
That is why we celebrate
Israel's 38th anniversary of
statehood. We celebrate for all
those who dreamed of Israel but
never lived to see it. We celebrate
for those who died in that
Holocaust which demonstrated
once and for all that a Jewish
state was essential. And, most of
all, we celebrate for ourselves.
A second guest speaker has
been added to the agenda for the
upcoming legislative seminar
sponsored by the Federation's
Government Affairs Committee.
Mary Ellen Early, director of
Public Policy for the Florida
Association of Homes for the Ag-
ing, will join Jack Levine, ex-
ecutive director of the Florida
Center for Children and Youth, as

achievements in the past year and
some of the projects and work
under way.
Presented by
President Stanley Newmark:
"The past year was a year of op-
portunity for the Federation with
everyone working together to
think Jewishly."
Achievements include:
Surpassing the 1985 Combin-
ed Jewish Appeal goal of
$1,100,000 with $1,107,000 raised
in the '86 Campaign so far.
Instituting and expanding
face-tc-face solicitations giving in-

Presented by
President Jin Soble
"Our success is measured by
our ability to meet and serve
needs," said Soble.
"Gulf Coast has grown from a
staff of three to a staff of 200 with
a $5-miUion budget (drawn from
Jewish, interdenomination and
government sources)," Soble said.
"This is big business."
With agency growth a
byproduct of increased need, So-
ble highlighted the most recent
Gulf Coast project as an example
of the agency's work.
Hacienda Home for Special
The home, the first of its kind in
the state, is intended as a method
to bridge the gap between in-
dependent life and nursing home
care. The Hacienda Home pro-
vides the maximum in resident in-
dependence while supplying com-
munal care for recuperating
clients or those with minor health
care needs.
Hacienda Home was opened and
dedicated by Gov. Bob Graham
May 30. The home, located in New
Port Richey, serves both Pasco
and Pinellas counties.

Myra Gross, President
Mrs. Gross noted the JCC
serves all age groups with ongo-
ing programs. The JCC also pro-
vides transportation for its clients
and those at other facilities such
as the Jewish Day School.
New projects noted included:
Shalom Newcomers Network,
a national project undertaken
with the Juvenile Welfare Board
and local organizations and agen-
cies county-wide.

Presented by Jay Hoffman,
Now in its sixth year, the
school will for the first time have
100-plus students in the 1986-87
school year with classes from
kindergarten to the eighth grade.
Plans are under way for the
school's first graduation (eighth
grade) in 1987.
Studetns continue to test well
above their counterparts in public
With half the school's students
coming from north of Park
Boulevard, Hoffman emphasized
that the school is about to fulfill its
promise to provide a centrally
located facility accessible to all
parts of the county.
The Day School is moving ahead
with plans for a facility on East
Bay Drive in Largo, but also
working with the Joint Task
Force in case a consolidated facili-
ty can be accomplished.
The student body also once
again made a tzedaka donation to
the Federation.
The Jewish Community Center,
the Jewish Day School, Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service and the
Kent Jewish Community Center
are beneficiary agencies of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas

by a portion of the funds raised
through the annual Combined
Jewish Appeal pledges.
At The Annual Meeting. .
Over 200 members of the
Pinellas Jewish community turned
out for the 1986 annual meeting of
the Jewish Federation and its
beneficiary agencies.
The breakfast meeting was June

"It is your commitment to the
Jewish community that brings you
here today," said Annual Meeting
Chairwoman Toni Rinde, who ex-
pressed her appreciation to new
Federation Board member Roni
I gel, the Belleview Biltmore staff
and entertainer Joy Katzen-
Guthrie and all who helped for
their assistance.
"Special congratulations go to

inging this meeting together."
A special toast for the communi-
ty was made by Eliza Greenberg,
President of the Women's Divi-
sion and Chairman of the
Women's Division Campaign.
"... that our community may
reflect a character that will insure
the existence of the state of Israel
and support for our local agencies
that they will continue to exist in
dignity and love."
Rabbi Arthur Baseman of Tem-
ple B'nai Israel gave the invoca-
tion and Rabbi Jan Bresky of
Temple Ahavat Shalom the
benediction. Dr. Stephen Igel led

Jerusalem Day Message 1986
Mayor of Jerusalem
Because Jerusalem Day follows
the Hebrew calendar and the
lunar year, its Gregorian calendar
date changes from year to year. In
1986, it falls on June 5, the date
on which the Sue-Day War began.
But Jerusalem Day com-
memorates what took place not on
June 5, but rather on June 7: the
reunification of the city. It was a

Tribune was discussing Arab ter-
rorism. He deplored it, of course,
but, predictably, the reporter
went into the accustomed discus-

rorism and how they needed to be

addressed if we were to see any
decrease of that form of violence.
Among the root causes he cited
for Arab terrorism was the
"implantation of the State of
Israel in the Mideast" (emphasis
added). An "implantation' is a
foreign element an outside enti-
ty that is set and entrenched in
some host body. The relationship
of the implant to the host may be
parasitic or it may be symbiotic,
but it remains an element brought
in from the outside and therefore
not indigenous.
The reporter on radio was
speaking quite naturally. He was
not hostile. He was not polemical.
He referred to the "implantation"
of Israel in the Mideast as only
one of several factors that had
given rise to Arab terrorism. He
cited economic and other political
factors as well. Indeed, had the
journalist cited the "founding" or
the "establishment" of the State
of Israel I would not have taken
Rabbi Kenneth Bromberg
particular notice but, the im-
plantation of Israel is a choice of
word that oh so subtly
delegitimizes the Jewish State in
the Mideast. It supports
rhetorically the Arab claim that
Zionism is nothing more than a
European Jewish invention im-
ported to the Mideast A Jewish
State is not native to the region
and just does not belong there. To
the extent that it exists at all on
Mideastern soil it is an implant
from elsewhere. Thus not only are
Zionism and Israel delegitimated,
but, by the same rhetoric, the
historic ties of Judaism and the
Jewish people to the Land of
Israel are summarily dismissed as
Am I making too much of too lit-
tle? Is it only my Jewish paranoia
that is showing? Or, has Arab
rhetoric delegitimizing Israel
seeped so deeply into the
vocabulary of Mideast discussion
that the terms of reference have
been permanently changed, so
that Israel and Israel's friends
must now continually justify the
Jewish State's "right to exist"?

reunification which grew from a
battle we made every effort to
It was a reunification which
brought us the challenge of
creating a city of peace, of replac-
ing minefields and barbed wire
with parks and playgrounds. It
brought us the challenge of foster-
ing harmony and tolerance among
the many communities which com-
prise Jerusalem's mosaic. It
brought us the challenge of plann-
ing a modern city while preserv-
ing its ancient monuments. It
brought us the challenge of
building a capital which would be
a cultural focus for our country
and, even more so, for world
Jewry. It brought us the challenge
of providing equal services to all
the city's inhabitants.
It is a challenge which we are
facing with the helping hands ex-
tended to us by our friends
throughout the world. As we
prepare to celebrate the 19th an-
niversary of Jerusalem's
reunification, we celebrate the
friendship and ties which we share
with all those who hold Jerusalem
close to their hearts.

Leslye Winkelman, director of
the West Florida regional ADL of-
fice in Tampa, expressed special
appreciation to the Pinellas
Sheriffs Office and the St.
Petersburg Police Department for
their ongoing investigations in the
case and to State Attorney James
T. Russell's office for its prosecu-
tion of the case.
The tentative sentencing date
for Flexon and Giovinazzo is June
Ms. Winkleman said the ADL
hopes the two will receive the
maximum sentence allowed by
law. The ADL earlier had been
concerned about the lesser
sentences levied on other defen-
dants in the case.
"They were within the sentenc-
ing guidelines and there were
other circumstances," she said.
"We just hope these two will get
the maximum sentence."
Winkleman said the league
helped draft the Anti-
Paramilitary Training Act in the
early 1980s because of the in-
crease in the number of extremist
groups bent on civil disorder.
Since Florida's enactment of the
law in 1982, 13 other states have
adopted similar laws, but the
Pinellas case is the first time
anyone has been prosecuted, she
On the national level, Finger
said he hopes other states now will
enact similar statutes. The suc-
cessful prosecution in Pinellas
demonstrates the validity and
value of anti-paramilitary legisla-
tion as an effective counteraction
to extremist tactics.
"It is a spur to vigorous in-
vestigation and enforcement,"
Finger said.
