Women's Division 1977-79
By LOUISE ROSS
Since Women's Division was
inaugurated, women who
headed the organization were
given the title of chairman. In
1977 Jeanne Levy became the
first "President" of Women's
Division as a result of the by-
laws revision instituted that
year.
As President, Mrs. Levy,
who had chaired Women's
Division twice previously, con-
tinued her exceptional service
to the Jewish community.
With such outstanding Cam-
paign Chairmen serving along
with her as Barbara Gordon
Green, Ann Faivus, and Cyn-
nie List, the Women's Division

Hamlisch To Entertain At Community Dinner Dance
Excitement is being
generated by the announce-
ment of composer and enter-
tainer Marvin Hamlisch as the
featured guest artist at the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County's Annual Com-
munity Dinner Dance. The
event will be held on Thursday,
Feb. 26, 6:30 p.m. at The
Breakers, Palm Beach. The
minimum commitment is
$1,200 to the 1987 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign.
The announcement was
made by Leah and Phillip
Siskin, Chairmen of the Com-
munity Dinner Dance, who
said, "As news of the an-
nouncement of Marvin
Hamlisch as our guest per-
former became known, people
began calling with their reser-
vations even before invitations
were sent out."
Mrs. Siskin continued,
"Marvin Hamlisch is a superb
entertainer in every sense. He
combines laughter and good
music in a vividly original and
exhilirating musical evening."
Mr. Siskin noted that the
Jewish community was ex-
pected to turn out in record
numbers to show their concern
and commitment for Jews in
the Palm Beaches, as well as
those in Israel and throughout
the world. "We are looking
forward to continuing the
wonderfully warm spirit
generated by our 'Celebration
25' Campaign Kick-Off this
past December.
"Since achieving celebrity
rank, Marvin Hamlisch has
been in constant demand for
concerts and guest ap-
pearances and we are honored
to welcome him to our com-
munity," Mr. Siskin stated.
Marvin Hamlisch, born in
1944 in New York City, was
raised in a musical household.
As a result, he began playing
the piano at age five, started
music lessons at age six, and
was admitted to the Juilliard

School of Music at age seven
one of the youngest students
ever to be admitted to that
school.
In 1968, while playing the
piano at a party given by film
producer Sam Spiegel, Mr.
Hamlisch discovered that the
producer was in search of a
composer for this new Burt
Lancaster film, "The Swim-
mer." Three days later, Mr.
Hamlisch presented Mr.
Spiegel with his music theme
for the motion picture. He was
hired on the spot, and sudden-
ly the young composer was in
Hollywood, writing the tunes
instead of playing them.
Mr. Hamlisch is the recipient
of many prestigious awards in-
cluding the Pulitzer Prize, the
Tony Award, three Oscars,
four Grammys and two Golden
Globes. He has written thirty
motion picture scores
(including "The Sting" and
"The Way We Were") and
created the music for two ma-
jor Broadway hits, "A Chorus
Line" and "They're Playing
Our Song."
He has appeared as guest ar-
tist with numerous symphony
orchestras, and on a variety of
television productions and talk
shows. Considering himself a
composer first, Mr. Hamlisch
candidly admits to the enor-
mous pleasure he receives
from performing his own
music and hearing it played
wherever he goes.
Co-Chairmen of the Dinner
Dance are Erie and Robert
Abrams, Renee and Albert

Rabbis Urged To
Solve 'Get' Problem
By WILLIAM SAPHIRE
NEW YORK (JTA) Rabbi Haskel Lookstein, presi-
dent of the New York Board of Rabbis, has urged his col-
leagues in all three trends of Judaism to "undertake a ma-
jor initiative" aimed at solving one of the most vexing and
divisive problems in Jewish community and family life
the get, or religious divorce.
Lookstein, who is rabbi of Congregation Kehilat
Jeshurun in Manhattan, defined the central problems and
offered solutions at the Board of Rabbis annual meeting
here Wednesday, Jan. 21, at which he was reelected to
another one-year term as president.
"The first problem concerns encouraging Jews to obtain
a get prior to remarriage," he said. The second "results
from a recalcitrant partner to a previous marriage who
refuses to give or accept a get after a civil divorce has been
granted."
THE get is not a universal requirement. Many Reform
rabbis will perform a second marriage where one or both of
the previously married partners has not obtained a
religious divorce. Orthodox and Conservative rabbis
generally will not.
Lookstein pointed out that a second marriage where
there has been no get is considered adulterous under Jewish
religious law, and the offspring of such marriages are
mamzerim illegitimate. "I appeal to all of my colleagues
to compromise on this and to require a get before remar-
riage," said Lookstein, whose stated goal is to "avoid all
future mamzerut in America."
He pointed out that illegitimate persons may never
marry religiously into the Jewish community and have no
recourse, such as conversion, to alter their status.
LOOKSTEIN called on the Board of Rabbis to resolve
that none of its members should officiate at a second mar-
riage unless and until every possible effort has been made
to obtain a get for the partner who needs it.
With respect to the second problem, the Board of Rabbis
president noted that "there are at present thousands of
men and women mostly women who have received a
civil divorce but who are prevented from entering a second
marriage because of a vindictive or avaricious former
spouse who refuses to cooperate in the get process."
He proposed the strongest possible sanctions against
such a spouse, including denial of all honors or privileges of
membership in a synagogue or temple. "This kind of social
pressure will have a great impact on recalcitrant spouses
and may go a long way toward eliminating the problem,"
Lookstein said, adding that "the publicity alone which will
attend the acceptance of such a proposal may greatly
enhance the get process."
IN URGING that the get requirement be made universal
in all trends of Judaism. Lookstein acknowledged

Wellington Campaign
Schimmels Named To Co-Chair
Having led the Jewish com-
munity in Wellington in a very
successful fund-raising drive
last year, David and Judy
Schimmel have been re-
appointed to co-chair this
year's Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County-United
Jewish Appeal Campaign in
this Western community.
Wellington will kickoff its an-
nual effort this year with a
$150 minimum commitment
Dinner Dance on Sunday,
March 8, 6 p.m., at the Well-
ington Club.
In making the announce-
ment of the re-appointment,
Jeanne Levy, General Cam-
paign Chairman, said, "The
Schimmels have played a
significant role in uniting the
rapidly growing community in
Wellington, having built on the
successful organization of the
Jewish community which has
been occuring there over the
last several years. I am confi-
dent that they will continue to
reach out to the residents in
Wellington who are increas-
ingly meeting their respon-
sibilities to Jews in need local-
ly, in Israel, and world-wide."
In this effort, two educa-
tional meetings will be held for
new Wellington residents and
for those who wish to become
better acquainted with the pro-
grams and services of the
Jewish Federation and its
beneficiary agencies. The first
meeting will be held on Sun-
day, Feb. 8, 7 p.m., at the
home of Phillip and Leah
Siskin, who were the first Co-
Chairmen of the Wellington
Campaign. The second
meeting is scheduled for Sun-
day, Feb. 22, 7 p.m., at the
home of David and Judy
Schimmel. Since these get-
togethers are strictly to in-
form the community about the
Jewish Federation, there wUl
be no solicitation of funds.
Pointing out that Wellington
is well-known as a closely-knit
Jewish community which has
cooperated on many levels
with Temple Beth Torah and
the Jewish Federation, the
Schimmels said, "We hope
every Jewish resident of Well-
ington will become actively in-
volved in the development of
the Palm Beach County Jewish
community by attending our
Campaign event. We are very
pleased about our new format
this year. In addition to the
dinner, there will be dancing to

Over the years, the relation-
ship between Temple Beth
Torah and the Jewish Federa-
tion has been mutually
beneficial, according to Lee
Smith, President of the temple
and a member of the Well-
ington Campaign Committee.
"The completion of our new
temple building last year has
further solidified our com-
munity, and we Wellington
residents will continue to sup-
port and utilize the facilities
and services of Federation and
its beneficiary agencies.
"Many of our students at-
tend the Federation sponsored
Midrasha-Judaica High
School. In addition, our
teachers, along with Rabbi
Steven Westman and
members of the temple's
Education Committee, have
benefited from teacher's
David and Judy Schimmel
workshops and seminars spon-
sored by the Jewish Federa-
tion. We look forward to con-
tinued cooperation and mutual
support," stated Mr. Smith.
The Schimmels have held
leadership positions both in
Temple Beth Torah and in the
Jewish Federation. Both are
active Board Members of the
temple, Mr. Schimmel having
served as temple Treasurer for
three years and Mrs. Schim-
mel having held the position of
Vice President of the temple
Sisterhood. The Schimmels
served as program co-chairs on
the Federation's Leadership
Development Committee last
year, and they both par-
ticipated in the Young Leader-
ship Mission to Israel in 1985.
Mr. Schimmel was the reci-
pient of the Young Leadership
Award in 1986.
Mrs. Schimmel serves on the
Education Committee of the
Jewish Community Day School
and has been a member of the
Communications Committee of
the Jewish Federation. She is
also a member of Bat Gurion
Hadassah.
Mr. Schimmel, a member of
the Board of the Jewish
Federation, serves on the
Communications Committee
as well as on the Long-Range
Planning Committee. He also

Helping People
Social Work Student
Placements A Plus
Friday, February 6, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 7
A personal view
fro" Sandy Gunther,
MSW, LCSW Caseworker at
Jewish Family and
Children'8 Service
Having just completed a
Barry University School of
Social Work student's evalua-
tion, it came to me how much
significance a student place-
ment has on the student, as
well as on our agency. First,
let me explain what a student
placement is. Just as doctors
do internships in hospitals
before becoming MD's, so do
social workers in social work
agencies. A graduate student
going to school to become a
social worker is assigned to an
agency to work a certain
number of hours per week, or
per semester. He/she is given
cases just as any professional
staff member is. The student is
expected to complete work
assignments, attend staff
meetings, and essentially do
anything and everything a
paid professional would do.
values, and how that may or
may not have an impact on a
particular client and "their pro-
blems. Learning objectives are
established early in the
semester, so that both the stu-
dent and supervisor have clear
expectations of each other.
The student brings into his/her
work the theories learned in
class, and then applies them in
direct practice.
The agency is pleased to
take on students because it
provides an opportunity for
some staff members to exer-
cise supervisory skills. Pro-
viding supervision encourages
the supervisor, and of course
the student, to examine the
hitest research in process and
dynamics. Often the student
helps the agency to assist more
people. In short, the student,
supervisor and agency all pro-
fit from a placement. It is a
learning experience for all
involved.

The answer is remote con-

have three such capable and
devoted women as Debbie and

this year. Judging by their
past involvement in many
areas of Women's Division, I
am confident that the combin-
ed talents of these three
leaders will make this year's
event most inspiring and
enjoyable."
Mrs. Jonas, on behalf of all
the Co-Chairpersons, said,
"Our program for the Brunch

impact of our heritage, we
remember the tradition of

This Brunch gives us an oppor-
tunity to join together and
reaffirm that that tradition is
still a vital part of our genera-
tion of committed women."

Lester Sodowick To Head Northern County Campaign
In recognition of the tremen-
dous growth of the Jewish
population of the northern
Palm Beaches, Lester
Sodowick has been appointed
to chair the newly formed Nor-
thern County division of the
1987 Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County-United
Jewish Appeal Campaign. The
division includes the com-
munities of Eastpointe, Old
Port Cove, PGA National,
Palm Beach Gardens, Singer
Island, Lake Park and North
Palm Beach.
Jeanne Levy, General Cam-
paign Chairman, in making the
announcement said, The
Eastpointe Campaign, which
Lester headed in 1988 when it
was inaugurated, has served
as the model for the develop-
ment of fund raising drives in
the northern Palm Beaches.
Up until now, it has been the
only affiliate which has had its
own event and it has shown a
marked increase in participa-
tion and contributions annual-
ly. Lester has played a vital
role in this success and,
therefore, I am honored that
he has accepted this important
leadership position to use his
expertise in achieving similar
results in the other
communities."
Mr. Sodowick noted that Old
Port Cove, Eastpointe, and
PGA National-Palm Beach
Gardens were all planning
separate events and that
Singer Island, Lake Park, and
North Palm Beach were plann-

To Address Residents
Sy Fine, active community

chair the newly formed PGA
National/Palm Beach Gardens
division of the 1987 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign. In making the an-
nouncement, Jeanne Levy,
General Campaign Chairman,
said, "We recognize that the
Jewish population in northern
Palm Beach County has
mushroomed over the last
several years, and as a result,
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County is reaching out
to the Jewish residents in this
area."
Mrs. Levy noted that Mr.
Fine has been a committed
member of this Jewish com-
munity for many years. "Sy
has always seen the need for
Jews to show their concern by
their financial commitment for
their fellow co-religionists
locally, in Israel, and world-
wide, and, therefore, has been
a most active lay leader in this
regard. I am very pleased that
he has accepted this new posi-
tion," she said.
Harriet and Sy Fine have in-
vited residents of these nor-
thern Palm Beach County
communities to their home in
PGA National, Palm Beach
Gardens, for a Cocktail Recep-
tion to meet U.S. Represen-
tative Sam Gejdenson of Con-
necticut on Tuesday, Feb. 17,
7:30 p.m. The $200 minimum
commitment event is given by
the Fines on behalf of the 1987
Jewish Federation-UJA
Campaign.
"We are very honored to
have Rep. Gejdenson address
our Jewish residents," stated
Mr. Fine. "He is an outstan-
ding legislator as well as a
very committed Jew who
backs his beliefs with action.
His dynamism is contagious
and we know that our caring
neighbors will look forward to
meeting him and hearing his
views on foreign policy."
Rep. Sam Gejdenson has
served Connecticut's Second
Congressional District since
1980. As a member of the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee, he has been a strong
supporter of Israel and ad-
vocate for world Jewry. He
has met with hundreds of
Jewish refuseniks in his fact-
finding trips to the Soviet
Union.
Rep. Gejdenson was born in
Eschwege, Germany in 1948,
in an American displaced per-
sons camp, and is the first
child of survivors of the
Holocaust to serve in Con-
gress. His parents fled Poland
after World War II and im-
migrated to the United States
in 1950, settling on a small
dairy farm in Bozrah, Conn.
Rep. Gejdenson has received
the Association of Jewish New
Americans' "Freedom
Award" and has spoken on
foreign policy issues before na-
tional meetings of the UJA,
the Anti-Defamation League,
and the American Gathering
of Jewish Holocaust Survivors.

ing a phonathon to solicit con-
tributions. "This is the first
year that we have had such an
organized Campaign with all
communities either par-
ticipating in an event or
phonathon. As a result, we are
looking forward to an im-
pressive response from our
committed residents on behalf
of Jews locally, in Israel and
around the world. The growth
in Jewish population also
reflects the growth in Jewish
responsibility and I know our
residents will meet the
challenge," stated Mr.
Sodowick.
Heading up the phonathon in
their individual communities
are Milton Kurland, Lake
Park; Max Tochner and Jeff
Paine, North Palm Beach: and
Robert Fitterman and Hank
Strauss, Singer Island.
Lester Sodowick, a resident
of Eastpointe for the last six
years, has been a South
Florida resident since moving
here in 1972 from Verona,
New Jersey. He chaired the
Israel Bonds and Federation-
UJA drives in Essex County
for many years and is a past
President of his temple in
Montclair, New Jersey. In ad-
dition to his efforts on behalf
of Federation-UJA locally, Mr.
Sodowick is a volunteer at the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric
Center.

Eastpointe Chairmen Named
Frances and Alvin Newman
have been renamed as
Chairmen of the Eastpointe
1987 Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County-United
Jewish Appeal Campaign for
the second consecutive year in
recognition of their capable
leadership, according to
Jeanne Levy, General Cam-
paign Chairman, who announc-
ed the appointment. "The
Eastpointe Campaign, which
includes Eastpointe in Palm
Beach Gardens and Eastpointe
Towers on Singer Island, has
expanded appreciably since its
inception five years ago. A
great deal of this growth is at-
tributed to the effort of the
Newmans," stated Mrs. Levy.
Also named as Co-Chairmen
by Mrs. Levy are Perle and
Monroe Potash who served in
this capacity in 1984. "I am
gratified that the Potashes,

augurating the fund raising
drive in these northern com-
munities," stated Mrs. Levy.

kicked-off with a Gala Dinner
Dance Celebration on Thurs-
day, Mar. 5, with cocktails at

The minimum commitment is
$700 to the 1987 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign.
Mr. and Mrs. Newman noted
that although the Campaign
has grown at a rapid pace in
the past five years, they are
looking forward to an even
greater percent increase this
year. "With more and more
committed Jewish residents
moving into our communities,
we are attempting to reach out
to each and every one to in-
form them about the needs in
our local community, in Israel,
and world-wide.
"We are also working hard
to increase an awareness of
the Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation by East-
pointe and in that effort are
aiming for more than the 12
Lions of Judah ($5,000
minimum commitment to the
WD Campaign) we had last
year. We are confident that
our neighbors will respond
wholeheartedly to our effort as
well as that of Perle and
Monroe and our hard working
committee," stated Mr.

PLO Strength In Lebanon
Restored To Pre-1982 Level
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Almost five years after the Lebanon war, the
military strength of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Lebanon has been
restored to almost the same level as it was when the Israel Defense Force invad-
ed that country in June, 1982, a senior military officer told an audience in Tel
Aviv last Monday.
THE OFFICER, who holds the rank of Lt. Colonel but was not identified by
name, said PLO terrorists were returning to their old bases in Sidon and Tyre
and their presence can be felt by the increased incidence of attempted attacks on
Israel.
The officer noted that Sidon and Tyre, on the Lebanese coast, provide the
terrorists with bases for night attacks on Israel by sea.
So far, the Israel Navy has successfully aborted such attacks, he said. But the
sea cannot be totally sealed off.
HE PROPOSED that Israel initiate a strong international1 maritime in-
telligence force to interdict sea-borne terroriste and saboteurs. He said Israel
could contribute considerable experience to such an undertaking.
11% Drop In Immigration To Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA) Immigration to Iarael totaled 9.500 in11986, an 11
percent drop from the previous year, according to figures released last week by
toe Central Bureau of Statistics. The decline was mainly in oltm from the Soviet
Union and Africa.
Of the 914 Jews reported to have left the USSR last year, only 202 came to
Israel. Although 566 Jews arrived from SouthAfnca. moreQthan double the
number in 1985, immigration from Africa as a whole fell by 58 percent
About 2,000 American Jews immigrated to Israel in 1986, only 100 more than
in the previous year. About 1,000 immigrants arrived from France, 800 from
Argentina, 600 from the United Kingdom and the rest from other European and
Latin American countries.

Rabbis Urged To
Solve 'Get' Problem
Continued from Page 4
''problems with the non-egalitarian structure of a get.
Under Jewish law only the male partner to the marriage
can give a get. But "the problem of mamzerut is sufficiently
grave to warrant a compromise on the issue" of
egalitarianism," Lookstein maintained.
Ironically, the issue of non-egalitarianism has arisen in
connection with New York State legislation enacted
several vears ago, known as the Get Law, which is intended
to protect women seeking a get from a spouse who refuses
to give one.
The law requires that in order to obtain a civil divorce
decree in New York State, the complainant must remove
all barriers to future remarriage of the other party.
Julie Frank, of New York City Council President Andrew
Stem's office who is knowledgeable on the Get Law, said
that it works only when the male partner is the complai-
nant. A woman complainant may agree to remove all bar-
riers to future remarriage of her spouse but it is mean-
ingless because a woman cannot give a get, Frank said.
LOOKSTEIN offered as another solution to the problem
of a recalcitrant spouse that members of the Board of Rab-
bis urge all prospective brides and grooms to sign a prenup-
tial, civil agreement pledging to cooperate in giving and
receiving a get should their marriage end in divorce.
He said he has been using such an agreement at his con-
gregation for the past five years which provides a model
and which conforms with New York State law and is
halachically acceptable.
Lookstein's presentation was generally supported by
members of the Board of Rabbis.
Rabbi Marc Gelman of Temple Beth Torah in Dix Hills,
Long Island, asserted that the entire subject of
egalitarianism and sexism in the get process requires much
more study. He said many Reform rabbis find the process
in conflict with the principle that men and women should
have equal control over their lives, which includes marriage
and divorce.
HE ALSO expressed qualms about the idea of sanctions
against a recalcitrant husband. Since Reform rabbis do not
at present require the get as a prerequisite for remarriage,
it is unfair to apply sanctions to a husband in a temple
where the rabbi does not consider the get necessary, he
said.
The Board of Rabbis voted unanimously to appoint a com-
mittee of Orthodox, Conservative and Reform rabbis to
study the proposals further and to report back to a plenary
meeting with specific suggestions for action.
Young Adult Division

Shamir Rejects
Peace Conference
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Yitzhak Shamir
strongly rejected an international peace conference on the
Middle East over the weekend because, he maintained, at
least three of the major participants France, the Peo-
ple's Republic of China and the Soviet Union would de-
mand that Israel withdraw to its 1967 borders. He thought
that even the U.S. would insist on such a retreat, though it
would probably agree to minor border changes.
Such a conference would "leave us isolated, confronting
the whole world," Shamir said, addressing a seminar of
Russian immigrants in Ramat Gan. It "will not brine Deace
or blessings to Israel. The only way to achieve peace is by
direct negotiations without prior conditions," Shamir
declared. His remarks underlined a fundamental division
between Likud and the Labor Party, its partner in the uni-
ty coalition government.

Foreign Minister Jean-
Bernard Raimond.
At those meetings he stress-
ed Israel's desire to see the
peace process resumed at the
earliest possible time and
maintained that the recent
visit to the Middle East by
U.S. Assistant Secretary of
State Richard Murphy suc-
ceeded in paving the way for
an international peace forum.
However, Peres told his
hosts, three points must be set-
tled: Israel considers the par-
ticipation of the Soviet Union
in a peace conference possible
only after Moscow renews
diplomatic ties with Israel and
restores normal relations with
the Jewish State.
Secondly, the duration of the
conference should be settled in
advance. The conference itself
should be a strictly formal af-
fair which would launch
negotiations between the par-
ties. Actual negotiations
should be conducted by various
subcommittees, for example, a
Lebanese-Israeli subcommit-
tee, another composed of Syria
and Israel and a third of Israel,
Jordan and a Palestinian
delegation, Peres said.
THIRDLY, he made clear
that Palestinian representa-
tion must be by independent
Palestinians prepared to ac-
cept Israel's existence and to
seek a peaceful solution to
their conflict not Palestine
Liberation Organization
delegates.
Peres reportedly told the
French leaders, who
themselves recently met with
King Hussein of Jordan, that
"Hussein is the key to peace"
in the region and that Western
Europe should use its in-
fluence to bring him to the
negotiating table. Mitterrand
and Chirac reportedly told
Peres that Hussein was
prepared to attend an interna-
tional conference but also felt

Peres said that Israel's
policy in the administered ter-
ritories has not changed since
the rotation of power last Oc-
tober when Likud leader
Shamir took over as Prime
the territories and ensure their
economic development, with
Jordan's participation, Peres
said.
HE SAID Israel would
welcome European in-
vestments in the West Bank.
Its only condition is that the in-
vestments be funneled
through Israeli or Jordanian
government-controlled bodies
and not go to independent
organizations which might
serve as a cover for the PLO.
Peres met with French
Jewish leaders Saturday. He
said he was optimistic about
Israel's future relations with
the Peoples Republic of China
but thought that much would
depend on Moscow's attitude
toward Israel. He said China
would probably formalize its
ties to Israel if the Soviets
moved in that direction.

Reinvestment Of Israel
Bonds Bought In 1973
A major "Reaffirmation
With Israel" campaign is be-
ing launched to secure
reinvestment of Israel Bonds
purchased in the Yom Kippur
War year of 1973 when more
than one million friends of
Israel joined in purchasing a
record $515 million, it has been
announced by Rabbi Howard
Shapiro, local reinvestment
Chairman of the new Bond
effort.
Rabbi Shapiro reported that
holders of both 1973 and 1972
Bonds would receive the
maturity value of their Bonds
up to 22 months in advance by
reinvesting these Israel Bonds
now.
"More than $400 million
dollars are available for
reinvestment. Israel is respon-
ding to the remarkable 1973
demonstration of support,"
Rabbi Shapiro said, "by offer-
ing interest in advance of
maturity provided the bon-
dholder adds additional funds
to reinvest in another Israel
Bond of a higher denomina-
tion." The offer is being ex-
tended to all holders of Bonds
purchased in 1972 and 1973.
To assist holders of matur-
ing Bonds, congregations in
West Palm Beach are planning
special Reinvestment tables in
the synagogues on Purim
evening, Saturday, March 14,
1987. Representatives of the
Bond Organization will be
available to explain the simple
reinvestment procedure.

Temple Beth El
Inaugurates 'Mitzvah Corps'
"The Spirit of Mitzvah," a
program which recognizes the
centrality of the synagogue as
a primary resource for persons
in need and for those who want
to serve the community, was
announced by Rabbi Alen L.
Cohen at Temple Beth El in
West Palm Beach.
Rabbi Cohen stated that the
Metropolitanism enveloping
Palm Beach in its rapidly
growing phase of develop-
ment, emphasizes the need for
the synagogue to assert itself
as a principal resource for
human needs. He said that so
much is happening, so fast,
that there are many people
who are unaware of the
synagogue and community
resources available to them.
Traditionally, the synagogue
has reached out to its con-
gregants to provide services
beyond the walls of prayer.
The new Mitzvah Corps pro-
gram speaks to the many pro-
blems of daily living which the
synagogue intrastructure is
well suited to deal with. The
program is designed to encom-
pass all members of the con-
gregation, asking that each
person give and take as the
situation demands.
Utilizing the services of the
Temple Sisterhood, the Men's
Club, the daily Minyan and a
newly organized Mitzvah
Corps, an all-out effort will be
made to involve everybody in
the "Spirit of Mitzvah"
program.
Questions are not only for
the Rabbi to answer. "How
can I help my neighbor?" This
is chiseled in the very founda-
tion of Judaism. Often, the re-
quirement is only a friendly
smile or greeting. Hospital and
nursing home visiting, sending
get-well cards, a reassuring
phone call, a condolence note
to the bereaved; planting a
tree or preparing a meal are
some ingredients of the
Program.
To promote the "Spirit of
Mitzvah" the Rabbi suggests
that congregants at a service
introduce themselves to the
persons seated nearby. First
timers at the temple will be
asked to introduce themselves
after Friday and Saturday ser-
vices. New members will be
greeted with challah and wine
a kind of "Welcome
Wagon."
Tillie Mutterperl has been
appointed chairperson of the
"Mitzvah Corps."
All members of the con-
gregation are invited to join
the Corps. Ideas to advance
the purposes and scope of the
"Spirit of Mitzvah" Program
may be addressed to the Mitz-
vah Corps c/o the Rabbi.
Appeal To Mubarak To
Grant Clemency To Israeli
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)i -
An Israeli lawyer is appealing
to President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt to grant clemency to an
Israeli, Yosef Tahan, who was
sentenced to death in Cairo
last year for allegedly smuggl-
ing drugs into Egypt.
Tahan's attorney, Zvi Lid-
sky said he would hand the ap-
peal over to the Egyptian Em-
bassy in Tel Aviv Sunday and
ao to Cairo himself if
necessary to try to see
Mubarak. He said his appeal is
based on humanitarian
grounds. Tahan, a resident of
Ashdod, is the father of four
children. A letter from them
will accompany the appeal.
According to reports from
Cairo, Mubarak is not ex-
pected to approve Tahan's ex-
ecution, nor will he grant a
pardon. This could leave the
man in prison for years with
the death penalty hanging
over him. Tahan was arrested
at the Cairo airport in August,
1985 with 1.35 kilos of heroin.
He was on his way home to
Israel from India.
At his trial, he said he in-
tended to market the drugs in
Israel.

JNF To Establish Bert Sales Memorial Woodland
The memory of Bert Sales
will be honored by the
establishment of a Woodland
of 2,600 trees on the Land of
Israel by the Jewish National
Fund. This project was in-
itiated by Dr. Marvin
Rosenberg and will be im-
plemented with the numerous
gifts received in memory of
Bert Sales from the Jewish
community in Palm Beach
County.
"Bert's years of dedicated
work to develop the Land of
Israel, through his involve-
ment with The Development
Corporation for Israel, has led
the Jewish community to in-
sure that a suitable memorial
be established on the land that
he so deeply loved. His
memory will be made eternal
through the planting of trees
in this living and most fitting
memorial," stated Dr.
Rosenberg.
The project will be located at
the American Independence
Park near Jerusalem. Mr.
Sales wife, Marylin, as well as
other family members are
Slanning to visit Israel to
edicate the Woodland.
The Jewish National Fund is
very appreciative of the con-
tributions that made this pro-
ject possible.
The Jewish National Fund is
the sole agency responsible for
reclamation, development and
afforestation in the Land of
Israel. The JNF has just
observed its 86th year of
existence.

Shamir Rejects
Peace Conference
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Yitzhak Shamir
strongly rejected an international peace conference on the
Middle East over the weekend because, he maintained, at
least three of the major participants France, the Peo-
ple's Republic of China and the Soviet Union would de-
mand that Israel withdraw to its 1967 borders. He thought
that even the U.S. would insist on such a retreat, though it
would probably agree to minor border changes.
Such a conference would "leave us isolated, confronting
the whole world," Shamir said, addressing a seminar of
Russian immigrants in Ramat Gan. It "will not bring peace
or blessings to Israel. The only way to achieve peace is by
direct negotiations without prior conditions," Shamir
declared. His remarks underlined a fundamental division
between Likud and the Labor Party, its partner in the uni-
ty coalition government.

Peace Conference

Foreign Minister Jean-
Bernard Raimond.
At those meetings he stress-
ed Israel's desire to see the
peace process resumed at the
earliest possible time and
maintained that the recent
visit to the Middle East by
U.S. Assistant Secretary of
State Richard Murphy suc-
ceeded in paving the way for
an international peace forum.
However, Peres told his
hosts, three points must be set-
tled: Israel considers the par-
ticipation of the Soviet Union
in a peace conference possible
only after Moscow renews
diplomatic ties with Israel and
restores normal relations with
the Jewish State.
Secondly, the duration of the
conference should be settled in
advance. The conference itself
should be a strictly formal af-
fair which would launch
negotiations between the par-
ties. Actual negotiations
should be conducted by various
subcommittees, for example, a
Lebanese-Israeli subcommit-
tee, another composed of Syria
and Israel and a third of Israel,
Jordan and a Palestinian
delegation, Peres said.
THIRDLY, he made clear
that Palestinian representa-
tion must be by independent
Palestinians prepared to ac-
cept Israel's existence and to
seek a peaceful solution to
their conflict not Palestine
Liberation Organization
delegates.
Peres reportedly told the
French leaders, who
themselves recently met with
King Hussein of Jordan, that
"Hussein is the key to peace"
in the region and that Western
Europe should use its in-
fluence to bring him to the
negotiating table. Mitterrand
Mid Chirac reportedly told
Peres that Hussein was
prepared to attend an interna-
tional conference but also felt

some preliminary points had to
be settled.
Peres said that Israel's
policy in the administered ter-
ritories has not changed since
the rotation of power last Oc-
tober when Likud leader
Shamir took over as Prime
Minister. Israel still wants to
improve the quality of life in
the territories and ensure their
economic development, with
Jordan's participation, Peres
said.
HE SAID Israel would
welcome European in-
vestments in the West Bank.
Its only condition is that the in-
vestments be funneled
through Israeli or Jordanian
government-controlled bodies
and not go to independent
organizations which might
serve as a cover for the PLO.
Peres met with French
Jewish leaders Saturday. He
said he was optimistic about
Israel's future relations with
the Peoples Republic of China
but thought that much would
depend on Moscow's attitude
toward Israel. He said China
would probably formalize its
ties to Israel if the Soviets
moved in that direction.

Rabbis Urged To
Solve 'Get' Problem
Continued from Page 4
"problems with the non-egalitariaR structure of a get
Under Jewish law only the male partner to the marriage
can give a get. But "the problem of mamzerut is sufficiently
grave to warrant a compromise on the issue of
egalitananism," Lookstein maintained.
Ironically, the issue of non-egalitarianism has arisen in
connection with New York State legislation enacted
several vears ago, known as the Get Law, which is intended
to protect women seeking a get from a spouse who refuses
to give one.
The law requires that in order to obtain a civil divorce
decree in New York State, the complainant must remove
all barriers to future remarriage of the other party.
Julie Frank, of New York City Council President Andrew
Stem s office who is knowledgeable on the Get Law, said
that it works only when the male partner is the complai-
nant. A woman complainant may agree to remove all bar-
riers to future remarriage of her spouse but it is mean-
ingless because a woman cannot give a get, Frank said.
LOOKSTEIN offered as another solution to the problem
of a recalcitrant spouse that members of the Board of Rab-
bis urge all prospective brides and grooms to sign a prenup-
taal, avil agreement pledging to cooperate in giving and
receiving a get should their marriage end in divorce.
He said he has been using such an agreement at his con-
gregation for the past five years which provides a model
and which conforms with New York State law and is
halachically acceptable.
Lookstein's presentation was generally supported by
members of the Board of Rabbis.
Rabbi Marc Gelman of Temple Beth Torah in Dix Hills,
Long Island, asserted that the entire subject of
egalitarianism and sexism in the get process requires much
more study. He said many Reform rabbis find the process
in conflict with the principle that men and women should
have equal control over their lives, which includes marriage
and divorce.
HE ALSO expressed qualms about the idea of sanctions
against a recalcitrant husband. Since Reform rabbis do not
at present require the get as a prerequisite for remarriage,
it is unfair to apply sanctions to a husband in a temple
where the rabbi does not consider the get necessary he
said.
The Board of Rabbis voted unanimously to appoint a com-
mittee of Orthodox, Conservative and Reform rabbis to
study the proposals further and to report back to a plenary
meeting with specific suggestions for action.
Field Day
Held At
JCDS
Wednesday, Jan. 14, was a
day devoted to athletic com-
petition, school spirit, and the
Fifth Annual Fun-Run at the
Jewish Community Day School
of Palm Beach County.
Students in grades
kindergarten through eight
began the day-long events
with a pep rally led by the
JCDS Panther cheerleaders.
Several students came up with
original school songs and
cheers to the delight of
children and faculty alike.
Following the pep rally was
a display of soccer, tennis,
volleyball and basketball by
members of the school's
teams.
The afternoon finale was the
Fifth Annual Fun-Run. All the
students participated by see-
ing how many times they could
complete laps around the field
in one hour. Prior to the day,
they had collected sponsors to
sponsor them on their run.
The Field Day at the Jewish
Community Day School turned
out to be a huge success
with beautiful weather, lots of
exercise, and tremendous
school spirit, according to Bar-
bara Steinberg, Executive
Director.
