Respond To
AIDS Control
By BEN GALLOB
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Despite Surgeon General C.
Everett Koop's 1986 appeal to
teach students condom-based
safe sex to combat AIDS, most
Jewish universities, citing reli-
gious law that prohibits any
artificial birth control device,
are failing to implement that
appeal, or are doing so only
partially, according to findings
of a Jewish Telegraphic
Agency telephone survey.
The one exception was Bran-
deis University at Waltham,
Mass. where 21 vending
machines selling condoms
were installed in January, and
safe-sex kits were distributed
to all students.
The kits included informa-
tion on AIDS, contraception,
the Brandeis Student
Sexuality Information Service,
and a condom.
Educational institutions
queried in the survey included
Brandeis, Yeshiva University,
the Jewish Theological
Seminary, the Branson ORT
school, the Hebrew Theolo-
gical College in Skokie, 111.,
Touro College and Gratz
College.
Also included in the survey
were the Committee on AIDS
of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations, the
central agency for North
American Reform synagogues;
and the Association of Hillel
Jewish Campus Professionals.
The vending machine instal-
lations at Brandeis were
described in the Reporter, the
university publication for
students, as part of a campus-
wide AIDS awareness and
prevention program.
Rod Crafts, Brandeis
student affairs dean, said that
information tables about AIDS
were set up in the school's
student center last semester.
Two films, "Sex, Drugs and
AIDS" and "Ted Koppel's
Point Counterpoint on AIDS,"
were shown in the university's

residence halls.
Other activities in the dormi-
tories have included speakers
from an AIDS Action
Committee, and talks on a
number of related topics,
including "Women and
AIDS," "AIDS and Testing,"
"The Politics of AIDS," and
"AIDS in the Work Place."
Crafts said one of the goals
of the program, now in its
third year, is to combat the
attitude of many Brandeis
students that "AIDS can't
happen to me."
Crafts said he did not know
whether the students were
applying the lessons of the
intensive protection program
in their personal behavior.
"We have no more assurance
than any other school that our
students are infection free,"
he said.
Brandeis will not implement
a policy of testing students for
HIV infection, Craft said,
because this was a private
matter between the individual
and his or her doctor. There
are 2,000 undergraduate
students at Brandeis and
nearly 90 graduate students.
A somewhat less intensive
safe-sex program was
reported by Richard Stern-
berger, director of the UAHC
Committee on AIDS. He said
the program had been organ-
ized during the current
academic year for religious

Alec Engelstein, President
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, has
announced that Irving Mazer,
a retired attorney from Phila-
delphia and local community
leader, has accepted the chair-
manship of the 1989 Jewish
Federation/UJA Campaign.
Since retiring from his law
practice in Philadelphia, Mazer
has been spending more time
in the Palm Beaches and has
become active in the Federa-
tion here. In 1987 he was
Associate Campaign Chairman
for Palm Beach Island and last
year was a member of the 1988
Major Gifts Committee.
"I am honored to accept the
position as General Campaign
Chairman and I look forward
to working with the many
dedicated and committed
volunteers to make next year's
campaign the most successful
in our history," said Mazer.
"Jeanne Levy did an
outstanding job as campaign
chair for the past two years
and she will definitely be a
tough act to follow. We have a
big job ahead of us, but I am
confident that the entire
community will join together
in this important effort to
meet the needs of Jews in
Palm Beach County, Israel and
around the world.'
"Federation is very
fortunate to have been able to
obtain a man of Mr. Mazer's
background and devotion to
serve as General Campaign
Chairman this year," said Alec
Engelstein, President of the
Jewish Federation. "We are
looking forward to a very
successful campaign that will
bring the annual total pledges
to a new high."

Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County brought him to
West Palm Beach one month
ago.
"One of the reasons we
moved to West Palm Beach is
that I wanted a challenge in a
Jewish community that was
growing at an accelerated
pace," Goldberg said. "I didn't
want to be the new kid on the
block in an established federa-
tion. I wanted to grow with a
communty and be able to have
some input."
Goldberg, 26,. arrived here
from New York City where he
had been studying and
working for six years. He
received his B.A. in Sociology
and Speech Communications
from Yeshiva University and
then continued studying at the
Wurzweiler School of Social
Work, where he received his
M.S.W. Simultaneously, Gold-
berg was studying for his
Rabbinic Ordination, which he
also received from Yeshiva
University.
"Even though I knew I
wanted to work in federation,
I also wanted a good solid
background in social work,
which I knew would really help
me," Goldberg said. During his
masters program, he did field-
work for the N.Y. Association
for New Americans in refugee
resettlement. After gradua-
tion, he was a project director
for the Jewish' Gommunity
Council of the Washington
Heights Neighborhood Preser-
vation Corporation, where he
worked in community planning
on housing and security issues
as well as counseled clients.
Dramatics and public
speaking is another of Gold-
berg's loves from college.

Universities Respond To AIDS.
Continued from Page 1
York indicated that they
had their own anti-AIDS
programs, geared to tradi-
tional family values.
Stanley Boyland, dean of
students at Touro College, told
JTA that "we believe that our
program, based on traditional
Jewish family values, is more
effective in preventing AIDS
infection and illness than is the
Surgeon General's approach."
Boyland added that Touro
College officials believe that
Touro students do follow those
values in personal behavior.
Touro College has some 2,900
undergraduates and 600
graduate students.
Rabbi Israel Miller, senior
vice president of Yeshiva
University, told JTA that "we
do not have classes or instruc-
tion in personal sexual prac-
tices. Miller said one graduate
student at Yeshiva University
had been forced to quit studies
by the onset of AIDS illness.
"Our student body in the
undergraduate colleges are
not being instructed any
differently than they were
prior to the appeal by the
Surgeon General.' The univer-
sity has 4,000 undergraduate
students here and in Israel.
Rabbi Don Well, president of
the Hebrew Theological
College, said students at the
Skokie school were committed
to Orthodox Judaism and that
the vast majority of young
Orthodox adults aid not seek
dates till they were ready for
marriage.
He said "we do assume" that
this was true for most of the
150 male undergraduates and
100 women undergraduates.
He added that most of the 50
graduate students were
married.
Orthodox leaders have
rejected Koop's appeal
because use of condoms is
firohibited by Jewish religious
aw as an artificial birth
control device.
Rabbi Joseph Brody, dean of
students at the Jewish Theolo-
gical Seminary, said lectures
are given "from time to time"
to students on the dangers of
AIDS, but he stressed that all
health services for JTS
students are provided through
Columbia University, since
most JTS students study there
too.
He told JTA that not one of
the 135 JTS undergraduates
had been forced to drop out of
school because of AIDS illness.
A similar statement was made
to JTA by Boyland.
Rabbi Abie Ingbar, presi-
dent of the Hillel directors
association and Hillel director
at Cincinnati University, said
that during the past two years,
one Jewish student had been
forced to drop out of school for
that reason.
Rabbi Joel Roth, JTS
Professor of Talmud and
chairman of the movement's
Committee on Law and Stan-
dards, speaking to JTA about
the position of Conservative
Judaism on safe sex, said that
the issue was now before the
Law Committee and that he
expected a ruling would be
made next fall.
Stressing that he was
speaking only for himself and
not as a JTS faculty member
or committee chairman, he
said "we are obliged to
support use of condoms but, at
the same time, make clear that
advocating use of condoms is
not meant to imply either the
acceptibility of unmarried
persons practicing sex or of
homosexuality."
He said the issue for Conser-
vative Judaism was whether
saying "yes" to condoms as a
means of safe sex "will be
perceived as giving sanction to
sexual behavior which Conser-
vative Judaism rejects."
He said that when the Law
Committee rules, it will prob-
ably take a stand "similar to
that which I advocate as an
individual."
Ingbar said that as a Reform
rabbi, he had fewer problems
in advocating safe sex,
including condom use, than
would an Orthodox rabbi, but
that for him, the problem had a
wider context.
He said that in counseling
students about AIDS, he tried
to teach them that safe sex
goes beyond the issue of
condom use, that the student
had a sacred obligation to
respect his or her body by
Jewish standards.
He said he thought that
more young adults were
virgins than before, but that "I
can't say for sure." He also
expressed doubts about the
widely accepted idea that
college students were gener-
ally indifferent to the perils of
AIDS. He said many students
he knew were terrified by
AIDS. y
He added that if a student
fails to respond positively to
the director's urging to
abstain from sex until
marriage, "when it comes to
the bottom line, I say, use a
condom every time."

Shalom
First Day
Close to 475 campers poured
out of school buses and
carpools into the newly reno-
vated Camp Shalom camp
grounds in West Palm Beach
for the first day of camp on
Monday, June 13th.
Amid nearly completed reno-
vations at the nine-acre camp-
site, children ages 4 to 14 and
their counselors enjoyed a full
day of camp activities
including sports, swimming,
drama and eating popsicles.
"It was wonderful, a little
hectic, but I think it will be
very enjoyable and enlight-
ening for me as well as the
kids," said Sarah Premisler,
Camp' Drama Director.
This is the second year at
Camp Shalom for Ravi Kahn,
age 8. "I'm hot and tired of
waiting for my ride," said
veteran camper Ravi, "but
camp was good today." His
prediction is that this year will
be better than last year.
Bari Weinhausen and Susan
Steiner, both 16, were looking
tired but still wearing their
counselor smiles even after the
kids were gone. "It was a busy
day, but it went pretty well,
they agreed. Bari is working
with the five-year-old group
and Susan with six-year olds.
"I think it went very well,"
Assistant Director Terry Frost
said while routing campers to
their correct buses and
directing car traffic through
the new pick-up point.
"Camp is larger than ever,
both physically and in popula-
tion and we've made a lot of
changes in the physical lands-
cape that have really affected
everything," Frost explained.
The renovations include an
air-conditioned pavilion with a
new stage, new pool lockers,
resurfaced tennis courts and
larger parking facilities. The
buildings have been painted
grey and maroon, fences were
erected to separate program
areas and new signs will be
installed at all the facilities.
"And our staff is fantastic,"
Frost continued. "They're
eager and qualified and really
want to be here."
Although too busy to talk,
Camp Director Jack Rosen-
baum, with loud speaker in
hand, a whistle around his
neck and ten people tugging at
his shirt, calling his name,
agreed that camp went well
for the first day. "We have an
all time high of 475 children
registered here this year," he*
said as he ran off to a staff
meeting.
And the first day of camp
was over.

Astrology and
Jewish Tradition:
There's No Star For Israel
By RABBI
BERNARD S. RASKAS
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
The recent revelation that
Nancy Reagan consults
astrologers and the First
Couple reads the daily horos-
cope has opened up a whole
new area of decision-making in
politics. Interpretations will
vary on what that may imply.
However, it should be under-
stood that Nancy and Ronald
Reagan were merely
expressing a significant aspect
of American culture. That is, a
preoccupation, often serious,
with astrology.
Usually, we are not aware of
the part that astrology plays in
the culture of America. When
a person escapes a misfortune,
we often say, "Thank your
lucky star." If one has good
fortune, we say, "He (she) was
born under a lucky star." In
literature, a love relationship
that has gone awry is charac-
terized as "star-crossed
lovers."
Horoscopes and columns
that predict the future based
on celestial signs can be found
in daily newspapers. In every
bookstore, and in the magazine
rack at local drugstores and
supermarkets, one can find
dozens of magazines and
paperbacks with astrological
interpretations and predic-
tions.
At the very outset, one must
understand the distinctions
between astronomy and
astrology. Astronomy is a
science which deals with celes-
tial bodies, their magnitudes,
motions, and composition all
based on verifiable data.
Astrology is a pseudo
science which charts the
influences of the stars upon
human affairs, and foretells
terrestrial events by their posi-
tions and aspects.
Astrology, horoscopes and
zodiacs pretend that the
stars, the positions of the
planets, the movement of
heavenly objects have an effect
on human lives. In light of this,
it would be interesting to note
what Jewish tradition has to
say about these matters.
The prophets were aware of
the practices of "star-gazers"
(hoverei ha-shamayim) among
the Babylonians and other
people, but they scoffed at
them.
In the Book of Daniel, the
Babylonian astrologers are
called kasdim (Chaldeans).
There is no explicit mention of
astrolgy in the Bible, but two
biblical passages deal with the
diviner (menahesh) and sooth-
sayer (me'onen): "You shall
not practice divination or
soothsaying" (Lev. 19:26) and
"Let no one be found among
you who is soothsayer, a
diviner, a sorcerer ..." (Deut.
18:10).
Several Jewish astronomers
and astrologers served in
various royal capitals of
Southern and Western Europe
as court astrologers, serving
as consultants, serving as
consultants in Castile, Aragon
and Portugal. Some were even
consultants on astrology to the
Pope and the Borgias.
In the Jewish religious liter-
ature of modern times, there
remain only vestiges of earlier
astrological beliefs. On joyful
occasions in individual and
family life, Jews everywhere
contratulate each other by
saying mazel tov (good luck). A
successful person is popularly
referred to as a bar mazel (one
of luck), and a perennial failure
is known as a ra-mazel (poor
luck in Yiddish, shlimazel).
On the whole, the Jewish
attitude seems to be one that
strongly favors opposition to
astrology. The Midrash tells us
"God lifted Abraham above
the vault of heaven, and said to
him. 'You are a prophet, not an
astrologer!' (Genesis Rabbah
41:12)
Maimonides wrote:
"Astrology is a disease,
not a science ... it is a tree
under the shadow of which all
sorts of superstitions thrive.
Only fools and charlatans lend
value to it. (Maimonides letter,
Marseilles 1195, Responsa ii
25b).
Perhaps, the final judgement
of the rabbis was made in the
following quotation: "The
Holy One forbade astrology in
Israel." (Genesis Rabbah
44:12)
This is reflected in the words
written by William Shake-
speare in his play "Julius
Caesar": "the fault, dear
Brutus, lies not in our stars,
but in ourselves."
In the last analysis, a signifi-
cant attitude on the subject is
reflected in a contemporary
anecdote. A stock-market
operator wanted to deduct the
cost of fees paid to an astrol-

oger for market guidance. He
was told by the Internal
Revenue Service, "Astrology
is not for finance, but for
fools!"
The Talmud and Midrash
have a great deal to say about
astrology. There is no clear-cut
view but rather various opin-
ions (often conflicting) on
whether heavenly bodies influ-
ence human behavior. On the
one hand, the patriarch
Abraham and his descendants
are spoken of as having been
elevated beyond subjection to
the stars (Genesis Rabbah
44:12). But, on the other hand,
the blessing bestowed on him
in Genesis 24:1 is interpreted,
as the gift of astrology.
A number of important
Talmudic rabbis, such as Rabbi
Akiya, were of the opinion that
the power of the stars over
ordinary mortals did not
extend to the People of Israel.
Rabbi Yohanan said: "There
is no star (mazel) for Israel
(Shabbat 156a). But, on the
other hand, we find the state-
ment "life, children and suste-
nance these things depend
not on merit but on the stars."
(MK28a)
In fact, so strong was the
zodiac in popular culture in
Talmudic times that we find
aspects of the zodiac in parts
of excavated synagogues. A
particularly fine example of
this can be found in the
mosaics of Bet Alpha, which
contain a complete picture of
the zodiac with each figure
bearing the appropriate
Hebrew inscription. Bet Alpha
is located in Israel in the
eastern Jezreel Valley.
Between the eighth and
tenth centuries, several
famous Jewish astrologers
lived in Islamic lands and
wrote books on astronomy and
astrology. For example, there
were astrological manuscripts
left by Ibn Ezra. There was a
very famous Persian Jewish
astrologer, Andruzgar Ben
Zadi Faruk, who lived during
the ninth century.
Another Jewish astrologer,
Abu Daud, who lived in
Baghdad at the beginning of
the tenth century, wrote an
astrological treatise entitled
"Book of Prophecies," that
appeared in many translations.
Among the medieval Jewish
scholars and philosophers who
were versed in astrology and
considered it to be a true
science, were Saadia Gaon,
Solomon ibn Gabirol and
Abraham ibn Daud.
Others, like Joseph Albo and
Judah Halevi, were skeptical
about astrology. Hasdai
Crescas came to the conclusion
that while there is no clear
evidence rebutting the
assumptions of the astro-
logers, in view of human free
will and divine providence it is
nevertheless impossible to
attribute an absolutely deci-
sive character to astrology.
Among the Jewish philos-
ophers of the Middle Ages,
Maimonides alone rejected
astrology completely, refer-
ring to the astrologers' beliefs
as vain superstitions unworthy
to be called a science.
Kabbalistic literature takes
astrology very seriously, if not
for granted. The Zohar states
explicitly: "All the stars and
constellations in the heavens
were appointed to be rulers
and commandants over the
world there is not a single
blade of grass in the entire
world over which a star or a
planet does not preside, and
over that star one (angel) is
appointed who serves in the
presence of the Holy One,
blessed be He, each according
to his merit." (Mishnat ha-
Zohar 2:171d)

Letter to the Editor
EDITOR:
What a wonderfully stimulating week we had at the
Jewish Community Center!
Monday afternoon we attended Timely Topics, together
with about fifty others and exchanged information and
opinions on current events ranging from the Presidential
issues to the new catastrophic health bill. Tuesday we
attended a book review of selected stories of Leo Tolstoy
and a summary of the famous Russian author's life and
philosophy.
But we could not resist the event of a lifetime the
celebration of Abe Goldberg's 103rd birthday on Thursday,
June 16! What a delight to participate in the Twilight
Dinner and Dance dedicated to this venerable gentlemen
who was flanked by two sons, Isadore and Alan, his
daughter Rose, daughter-in-law Sadie, Abe's dancing
partner, Tessie Simon, and a host of relatives, friends and
JCC'ers who attend the monthly Twilight dinner-dance
galas. The Goldberg family might well be renamed The
Dancing Meringues!
Izzy and Sadie are graceful and gracious dance teachers
and entertainers in the community, and the other members
of the family trip the light fantastic con mucho gusto,
including "Pop" Goldberg who learned to dance at 70 and
is a regular at the Century Village Clubhouse. Watching
him go through his paces was a lesson in the unquenchable
spirit of man. He is an inspiration to those of us who look
wanly to the future and bemoan the encroachments of age.
If so many varied activities can be conducted in the
limited space of the JCC now, what potential there is in the
future expanded facility! Given the dedication of the
wonderful staff of the JCC and the talent and enthusiasm
SI J!l"?mmumty' *e foresee a rival to the fabulous 92nd

Ex-Nazis
Worked For U.S.
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Justice Department
admitted that convicted Nazi
war criminal Robert Jan
Verbelen worked for the U.S.
Army's Counter Intelligence
Corps in Vienna from 1946 to
1956, as did at least 13 other
active members or collabor-
ators of the Nazi Party and SS.
The department made public
the results of a formal investi-
gation, initiated by a request
from the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, into
whether the U.S. government
protected and assisted
Verbelen, who now lives in
Austria.
The report also provides
descriptions of the 13 others,
but does not name them at the
request of the Central Intelli-
gence Agency, in order "to
protect the identity of intelli-
gence operatives," the report
said.
Elliot Welles, who
heads ADL's task force on
Nazi war criminals, said he is
seeking to uncover those
names as a "matter of prin-
ciple."

Reagan Appoints First Jewish
Chief Of Staff____________
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Reagan has
promoted Kenneth Duber-
stein, his deputy chief of staff,
to White House chief of staff,
the first Jew to hold that post.
White House spokesman
Marlin Fitzwater said Duber-
stein will take over for Chief of
Staff Howard Baker Jr. on
July 1, when Baker will return
Duberstein's Parents Active In
Jewish And Arts Communities
By LORI SCHULMAN
Aaron and Julia Duberstein's phone hardly stopped
ringing last week after their son Kenneth was appointed
Reagan's new chief of staff.
They are proud parents, but they don't want any
publicity for themselves. "Just talk about Kenneth," his
father requested. And then added, "He's a patriotic,
dedicated young man serving his country."
The Dubersteins, who live in Century Village in West
Palm Beach, moved here 15 years ago from Brooklyn, N.Y.
They are members of Temple Israel in West Palm Beach
where he is a former Trustee and she is a former sisterhood
vice president.
Kenneth, now the father of three children, had his bar
mitzvah and confirmation in Temple Beth Elohim in
Brooklyn.
"We're very proud we're Americans," said Duberstein,
"but we're also proud that we're Jews."
"The Dubersteins are very wonderful, involved and
devoted people," said Dr. Richard Shugarman, past presi-
dent of Temple Israel and a member of the Jewish
Federation Board of Directors. "They are the kind of
/
Julia and Aaron Duberstein
people who go out of their way for others. Anytime I have
ever called them for anything, I received assistance. They
just don't say no. They're too good to be true." Dr.
Shugarman has known the Dubersteins for almost 14
years.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Duberstein have long been active in
the local arts as members of the Greater Palm Beach
Symphony Association, the Philharmonic Orchestra of
Florida and the Patron's Opera Guild of the Palm Beach
Opera.
Aaron Duberstein, a retired lawyer, is a former member
of the board of directors for the symphony and the opera.
He served on the symphony board for four years ending in
about 1984 and the opera board for 10 years ending in
1985. He now is director emeritus for the opera.
Mrs. Duberstein, a retired teacher, was president of the
Patron's Opera Guild, designed to promote interest in
opera performances and raise money, according to Ava
Coleman, the opera's director of development.
The Dubersteins also have a daughter, Susan, who lives
in Charlotte, N.C. and five grandchildren.

to his private law practice.
Baker is stepping down for
personal reasons.
In a statement read by
Fitzwater, Reagan said, "I
have known Ken since the
earliest days of my administra-
tion, when he served in our
office of legislative affairs.
"I welcome his leadership in
the next several months as we
attend the eighth economic
summit of industrialized
nations and conduct the affairs
of government for the next
seven months."
Duberstein was recom-
mended to the job by Baker,
who fondly nicknamed his
assistant "Duberdog." He is
the fourth man to preside over
the 325-member Reagan
White House staff.
"Ken will be my principal
aide and will lead the White
House staff as we head into
the home stretch," Reagan
said. "He is an outstanding
manager and skilled strategist
who has been fundamental to
the significant accomplish-
ments, foreign and domestic,
we have achieved since Ken
returned as deputy chief of
staff in March 1987."
Duberstein was assistant to
the president for legislative
affairs in 1982 and 1983 and
was deputy assistant for legis-
lative affairs from 1981 to
1982.
A native of Brooklyn, Duber-
stein received a bachelor's
degree from Franklin and
Marshall College and a
master's degree from Amer-
ican University. From 1965 to
1976, he worked for the late
Sen. Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.). He
also worked for Mayor John
Lindsay of New York, and
Gov. and Vice President
Nelson Rockefeller.
Hyman Bookbinder, special
Washington representative for
the American Jewish
Committee, said Duberstein,
in his previous White House
positions, was "a person you
can go to to move something
on the (Capitol) Hill."
Morris Amitay, former exec-
utive director of the American
Israel Public Affairs
Committee, said Duberstein is
"not a Middle East expert but
knowledgeable" on the region.

Pope's Visit To Waldheim
Just Protocol
By RABBI
MARC H. TANENBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) On
Thursday, June 23, Pope John
Paul II began a four-day
pastoral visit to Austria. The
visit included three occasions
of contact between the Pope
and Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim. Given the furor
that erupted in June 1987
when the Pontiff agreed to
receive Waldheim at the
Vatican, it was inevitable that
this would also create a contro-
versy.
It is important that we know
some basic facts about this
papal visit, and not allow
extremist hysteria and stri-
dency to overwhelm wisdom
and common sense.
First, this was a pastoral
visit to the Austrian people, 87
percent of whom are Catholic.
It is a centuries-old Vatican
policy that popes, as sover-
eigns of the Vatican State,
automatically meet with other
heads of state with whose
countries the Holy See has
diplomatic relations.
In our conversations with
the Vatican authorities, we
were informed that Papal
contacts with Waldheim were
to be kept to an absolute
protocol minimum.
Two weeks ago, a French
radio station reported that
Waldheim insisted on accom-
panying Pope John Paul
during his visit to the
Mauthausen concentration
camp.
We were told that the Pope
rejected Waldheim's demand
and threatened to cancel the
Papal visit if Waldheim
insisted on being present.
Austria's young Chancellor,
Franz Vranitsky, has this year
decisively side-tracked Wald-
heim on most national
Austrian observances. The
Vatican, if our information is
correct, is seeking now to
follow that pattern.
I think we should welcome
that approach, and not give
Waldheim a publicity victory
that he should be denied in the
face of his abominable wartime
past.
Shoah" Director, Claude Lanzmann,
To Receive Award________________
NEW YORK Claude
Lanzmann, director of
"Shoah," the widely acclaimed
documentary film that
captured the tragedy and
triumph of the struggle of
European Jews during the
Holocaust, has been named the
recipient of the Henrietta
Szold Award for 1988.
Lanzmann will accept the
award during Hadassah s 74th
National Convention, on
Tuesday, Aug. 2.
The Henriettta Szold Award
is Hadassah's highest honor
and is bestowed annually on a
person whose life and work
best exemplifies the humani-
tarian values of the scholar,
educator and pioneer Amer-
ican Zionist who founded
Hadassah at Purim in 1912.
"Shoah" Hebrew for
"annihilation" has been
hailed by critics as a "master-
piece," "one of the greatest
documentaries in the history
of cinema" and a "monument
against forgetting."
It is unlike any other docu-
mentary about the Holocaust.
Without using a single frame
of archival footage, Lanz-
mann, the creative force
behind the film, evoked the
horror of the death camps
through a series of inerviews
with survivors and witnesses,
images of the sites as they
appear today and discussions
with a Holocaust scholar.
Lanzmann, who lives in
France, fought in the Resis-
tance in World War II, and
worked as a journalist with
Jean-Paul Sartre on the maga-
zine "Les Temps Modernes"
before taking up filmmaking in
1970. An earlier documentary,
"Why Israel," was released in
1973.

Big Givers Giving
Secular Dollars__
Friday, July 1, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 7
New
Staff
By
ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) In the
early 1970s, when Jews contri-
buted more than $1 billion per
year to philanthropy, two-
thirds of the total went to
Jewish causes.
Today, annual Jewish contri-
butions to all charities have
risen to $3.5 billion. But as
older givers are supplanted by
their younger, more secularly
oriented counterparts, the
share of contributions going to
Jewish causes has dropped to
around 50 percent of the total,
according to Dr. Barry
Kosmin, a New York soci-
ologist.
"The Jewish philanthropic
dollar seems to be increasingly
secularized," Kosmin said last
week. Or, as a fellow soci-
ologist put it, Jews who once
gave with their "kishkes"
(guts) and hearts are now
giving with their heads.
Social scientists, community
leaders and professional fund-
raisers donated two days last
week to discussing the
changing nature of Jewish
philanthropy.
The conference, "Jewish
Philanthropy in Contemporary
America,' was co-sponsored
by the City University of New
York, the Institute for the
Study of Modem Jewish Life
at City College and the North
American Jewish Data Bank, a
joint project of the CUNY
Graduate School and the
Council of Jewish Federations.
Presenters outlined a
number of challenges to
Jewish fund-raisers, including
the increasing role women are
playing in raising and donating
funds, changes in the tax laws
and reappraisals of Israel's
influence on Jewish communal
identity.
Acculturation Trend Cited
There was also discussion of
philanthropies represent-
ing new, sophisticated consti-
tuencies, including the New
Israel Fund and the Jewish
Fund for Justice. Both bypass
such centralized philanthropic
channels as the United Jewish
Appeal to fund specific
f rejects or organizations in
srael and other countries.
Kosmin, who is director of
the Jewish Data Bank, and Dr.
Paul Ritterband, director of
the Center for Jewish Studies
at CUNY, co-chaired the
conference. Both agreed in
presentations and interviews
that of all these changes,
however, the most significant
remains the growing seculari-
zation and acculturation of the
American Jewish community.
Kosmin described the tradi-
tional Jewishly oriented
philanthropist as someone
born in the 1920s who remem-
bers the Depression, World
War II, the old Jewish neigh-
borhood and the sound of
Yiddish.
But with each succeeding
generation, said Ritterband,
the probability of giving to a
Jewish cause and the relative
size of the contribution both
shrink.
A Jew born in the 1940s, for
instance, may be as likely to
belong to the board of a major
American ballet company or
orchestra as he or she would
that of a Jewish community
center or national defense
organization.
"If fund-raisers continue to
play the same old game,
they're going to go straight
down the tubes," said Ritter-
band.
Still, Ritterband insisted
that the conference was not
about raising money, but unde-
rstanding a people.
Said the sociologist, whose
department has more social
scientists dealing with Jewish
life than any university outside
of Israel, "What you put your
money into is a telling indi-
cator of where you stand."

Double Assault in Paris
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Two shrapnel grenades were thrown at a
Jewish community center in a Paris suburb. They caused no
casualties or damage.
About a dozen students were attending classes at the center at
the time of the attack. The grenades were packed with nails. The
police said that had the explosive charge been stronger, the
grenades could have caused serious casualties.
No graffiti or leaflets were found and no group has claimed
responsibility. The police are investigating.
The assault was the second against a Jewish institution in 24
hours. Earlier, vandals broke into a Marseille synagogue and set
fire to prayer books and Torah scrolls. They left no clues behind.

computer operations. Since he
started here he. has been
working hard on upgrading
the Federation's computer
system. This summer he plans
to revise the way in which the
computer system handles
campaign information and will
be transferring the accounting
system from an old Wang
computer to the new system.
Although Kramer has never
worked in the Jewish
Communal field before, he
thought that combining his
Jewish background with his
career would be an interesting
change.
"I was involved up north,"
he said. "But I took the job
here because I wanted to work
in a place that really helps
Jewish people. I like working
here," Mark said. "It's more
than just a job. It's a place
where you can really get
involved."
In Boston, Kramer was bar
mitzvahed and married by
Rabbi Harold Kushner, author
of When Bad Things Happen
To Good People.
When he's not working,
Kramer says he's an avid
Celtics fan and enjoys playing
sports as well.

Although he appears quiet to
most, Goldberg describes
himself as very outspoken and
creative. At one point in his
career, he even wanted to be in
public relations and did a
summer internship with
"People Are Talking," a tele-
vision talk show in Baltimore.
Oprah Winfrey was one of the
hosts of the program. "That's
my big claim to fame," Gold-
berg joked. When he ran into
Winfrey several years later he
claims she still remembered
him. "When you're the only
one in the studio wearing a
yarmulka I guess people
remember you.'
Born and raised in an
orthodox community in Balti-
more, MD, Goldberg is now
married and has a two-year-old
daughter, Talia. His wife,
Betty, previously a computer
systems analyst is now
working in tax preparation.
The couple lives in Boca

Agencies Awarded Brookdale Grant
The Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service, in joint spon-
sorship with the Jewish
Community Center and the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric
Center of West Palm Beach,
has been awarded a matching
grant of $7,500 by The Brook-
dale Foundation in New York
to start a community based
respite program for the care-
givers of Alzheimer's patients.
The respite program, in
Boynton Beach, will be based
on a model developed by the
Brookdale Foundation and
The Brookdale Center on
Aging of Hunter College,
which runs 12 respite centers
in New York City. The model
utilizes trained staff and volun-
teers to offer Alzheimer's
Rabbi Konigsburg
Assumes Pulpit__
Rabbi Randall J. Konigsburg assumes his rabbinical duties at
Temple Beth David on July 1. Previously he served as Rabbi at
Temple Sha'aray Tzedek, Sunrise Jewish Center, Florida and as
Assistant Rabbi at Beth Torah Congregation in North Miami
Beach.
Ordained in 1983, Rabbi Konigsburg received his Masters
Degree from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. He
also holds a Bachelor of Literature Degree in Jewish Studies
from the University of Judaism in Los Angeles, and a Bachelor
of Arts Degree in Social Psychology from Florida Atlantic
University.
Rabbi Konigsburg has been
affiliated with the Rabbinical
Association of Greater Miami
and has served on the conven-
tion and conversion commit-
tees of the Rabbinical
Assembly Southeast Region
the association of Conserva-
tive Rabbis. He is a former
member of the Committee on
Cults and Missionaries of the
Community Relations Council
of the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation. As a member of
the North Broward Board of
Rabbis, he created the Singles
Program called TGIS, and has
been co-ordinator of JACS
Program for Recovering Alco-
Rabbi Randall J. Konigsburg holies and Addicts.
In 1977, Rabbi Konigsburg attended a summer study program
in Israel, sponsored by the Jewish Theological Seminary of
America in Jerusalem. He also spent a year (1979-1980) in
Jerusalem studying at Hebrew University as part of the
Rabbinical Program at the Jewish Theological Seminary. During
that time he also served as a student assistant in the seminary
synagogue.
Rabbi Konigsburg and his wife, Michelle, have three children
a daughter, Ashira and sons Eitan and Hillel. He has resided
in South Florida since he was six and his family has been part of
the North Broward community since 1964. As a youth, he was a
member of USY and a sub-regional officer in the Southeast
Region of United Synagogue Youth.
patients social and recrea-
tional opportunities in a
supportive setting. The people
who care for them gain much-
needed time off as well as
support and assistance with
the special problems faced by
caregivers.
Together, the Jewish Family
and Children's Service, Jewish
Community Center and Morse
Geriatric Center received one
of eight grants awarded to
providers across the country
for seed money to replicate the
model program. Grants were
awarded based on innovation
and development of programs
and an ability to provide this
service within the community,
said Neil Newstein, Executive
Director of the JF&CS.
"There are many families in
the Palm Beach area who care
for elderly, memory-impaired
relatives, often under enor-
mous stress," Newstein said.
"The grant from The Brook-
dale Foundation will allow the
three sponsoring organiza-
tions to extend services to
some of these families. We
hope that volunteer and
community response to this
program will be strong enough
to allow us to expand and meet
even more of the local need for
these services."
The program, starting
in mid-August, will provide
half-day respite services two
days a week for 12-15 partici-
pants with Alzheimer's.
Caregivers will be able to
use this time for shopping,
visiting friends or just as
precious private time. Exten-
sive and ongoing training will
be provided to volunteers, who
are essential to the program,
by the program's professional
staff.
Cynthia Toksu, a geriatric
social worker at JF&CS, is
currently receiving special
training in Boston and will
oversee a staff of volunteers
and one part-time staff person
at the respite.

Education, Not Academics,
Turns Kids Around
Friday, July 1, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 9
By LILI EYLON
Netanya, Israel UJA
Press Service liana was an
unkempt, inarticulate and
uncontrollable teenager when
she came to the Netanya
General Day Center three
years ago. Today she is a
young lady who exhibits self-
confidence and speaks in soft
I tones.
"In the schools that I
I attended I simply did not exist.
I was one of 40 in the class and
nobody even noticed me," said
liana, a seventeen-year-old
Israeli girl. "Here it's
different. Here I can express
myself," she explained, refer-
ring to the Netanya General
I Day Center.
The Center is part of the
I Jewish Agency's Youth Aliyah
network of educational institu-
tions, largely funded by Amer-
ican Jewry through the UJA/
Federation Campaign. Origin-
ally responsible for integrating
children from distressed lands
| into Israeli society, including

[Support Group
The Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service will hold a
support group on July 11 at
5:30 p.m. at the King David
Nursing Home for the resi-
dents, their families and the
community.
The guest speaker will be
Michele Harvey, RD, a Regis-
tered Dietician and a member
of the American Dietetic Asso-
ciation. She will discuss the
nutritional myths and misin-
formation that are^constant in
Florida. Many older adults fall
victim to uncredited individ-
uals who claim to be know-
ledgeable. Ms. Harvey believes
that a correct diet can better
control and even prevent heart
disease, kidney disease and
some forms of cancer.
She will also be teaching how
to make dietary restrictions
taste good through creative
seasoning and food prepara-
tion.
Ms. Harvey has been coun-
seling on nutrition for many
years in the West Palm Beach
area. Her specialty is in indivi-
dualized nutritional coun-
seling, planning individualized
menus and nurturing behavior
modification of eating habits.

children brought to Eretz
Israel to escape Nazi
Germany, the Jewish Agency
today stands at the forefront
of Israel's modern educational
challenge. Its hundreds of
facilities still absorb young
immigrants from the Soviet
Union, Iran, and Ethiopia,
while at the same time caring
for Israeli children from disad-
vantaged families and those
who require special educa-
tional needs.
liana, now a neatly dressed
and well-behaved teenager,
has made remarkable progress
since her enrollment at the
Day Center, when her
teachers described her as the
product of a home in which
harmony and care were merely
dictionary words. Next year,
she said, she will enter military
service, after which she hopes
to become a secretary using
the skills she learned at the
Netanya General Day Center.
The special attention the
students receive is very
important to 18-year-old Un,
who arrived at the Center
suffering from epilepsy. The
care, attention and love he got
from his teachers put him back
on his feet. Today he is
studying to be a diamond
cutter and setter. An intelli-
gent young man, Uri said he is
pleased with the way his
future profession is being
taught at the Center.
Diamond finishing is one of
five areas offered at the
Center. Carpentry, automobile
mechanics, beautician and
secretarial skills are also
taught. The curriculum for all
pupils includes history,
Hebrew, mathematics and a
foreign language. Classes are
usually limited to 12 to 15
students, which is possible
with the Center's ratio of 42
teachers for 230 students.
Each teacher also visits his
students' homes at least twice
a year to meet the parents and
observe the home environ-
ment.
Yonathan Quart, the
Center's principal, is espe-
cially proud that the students
at the Center are involved in
the community. "The youngs-
ters are strongly motivated to
be helpful," Quart explained.
"Just the other day a group of
boys went to the home of an
aged resident and cut down
the shrubs surrounding his
house. And our beautician girls
and their teacher visit a JDC
home for the aged every few
weeks to cut the residents'
hair. You can imagine how the
elderly ladies look forward to
the visits." JDC, the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee, receives virtually
all its funds for programs in 34
countries through the UJA/
Federation Campaigns.
"We don't deal with acade-
mics here, we deal with educa-
tion," Quart asserted. "The
children come to us without
norms, without discipline, with
little if any self-respect. We
give them the ability to estab-
lish a healthy self-image."

'88 Representatives
Likely To Be
Strong On Israel
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The November elections are
not likely to produce a major
shift in voting patterns on
Israel in the U.S. House of
Representatives, analysts say,
if incumbents are re-elected
with the same 98-percent
success rate that they achieved
in the 1986 races.
Analysts point out, however,
that there are a few "friendly"
lawmakers in trouble this year,
as well as some "opportunity"
races to knock off some of the
least supportive members of
Congress.
Seventeen of the largest pro-
Israel political action commit-
tees awarded close to $1.45
million through March 31 to
congressional campaigns this
election cycle.
While $900,000 had been
spent on Senate campaigns,
only about $500,000 went to
House races. Those numbers
are expected to tighten
because of the early publicity
generated by Senate races,
analysts said. The remainder,
$45,000, was distributed to
various presidential candi-
dates.
The presidential race is not
the focus of the pro-Israel
PACs. Richard Altman, execu-
tive director of National PAC,
which led the 17 PACs with
$377,500 in campaign contri-
butions through March 31, said
congressional elections "count
the most" in influencing U.S.
policy toward Israel, since a
$5,000 contribution to a presi-
dential campaign is considered
insignificant.
National PAC did award
Vice President George Bush
$5,000 anyway for good
measure. Massachusetts Gov.
Michael Dukakis, the likely
Democratic nominee, does not
accept PAC money.
In the 435-seat House of
Representatives, the pro-
Israel PACs so far have
awarded money to more than
130 members and two dozen
challengers. They generally
contribute to lawmakers on
the committees affecting
Israel, which are Appropria-
tions, Armed Services,
Budget, and Foreign Affairs.

Each of the agencies
involved will provide specific
services to the program: the
JCC will provide meals and a
recreational therapist, the
Morse will hire a volunteer
coordinator and the JF&CS
will oversee the entire opera-
tion.
There is no mandatory fee
for participation in the
community respite program,
although contributions will be
accepted.
Black and White Images of Israel
By SHIMON BEN NOACH
(WZPS) History as
recorded by David Rubinger, a
Time magazine photographer
in Jerusalem since 1954, is a
fascinating collection of
human emotional expression.
The challenge of rebuilding
lives and the rebirth of a
nation, on the one hand, and
the despair and destruction of
war on the other hand,
comprise the principle themes
of a new photographic exhibi-
tion by David Rubinger. Enti-
tled "Witness to an Era," the
80 photographs on display
form part of Israel's 40th anni-
versary celebrations.
The exhibition is featured at
the Jerusalem Municipal
Museum in the Citadel by the
Jaffa Gate. Sponsored by Jeru-
salem mayor Teddy Kollek, the
exhibition was funded by
Israel's 40th anniversary
committee and will be on show
for several months.
Historic Moments
In the lobby, before entering
the exhibition, is Rubinger's
most famous picture a group
of Israeli parachutists looking
up in awe at the newly Liber-
ated Western Wall on the third
day of the Six-Day War, June
7, 1967. It's a picture that
captures a historic moment
and in the faces of the young
soldiers can be seen an un-
fathomable mixture of exhaus-
tion, elation, disbelief, triumph
and fulfillment, reflecting both
the human condition and the
Jewish predicament of exile
CJF to New Orleans

minister David Ben Gurion, at his new photographic exhibition "Witness to an Era." WZPS

and return. "If a photographer
is lucky enough to witness and
snap one moment like that,"
says Rubinger, "and leave his
picture for posterity, then
dayenu (that's good enough."
Rubinger has himself both
observed and been a part of
modern Jewish history. Born
in Vienna in 1924 he reached
Eretz Yisrael in 1939 with
Youth Aliyah. Most of his
family perished in the Holo-
caust. In 1951 he began his
photographic career and in
1954 undertook his first
assignments for Time maga-
zine.
Rubinger's exhibition is
arranged by themes rather
than chronologically. Most of
the pictures are in black and
white, though many of the
most recent photographs are
in color. In sections entitled
"On The Way Home," and
"Found Horizons," Rubinger
captures the hope of the
millions of new immigrants as
they arrive by boat and plane
to begin a new life in Eretz
Yisrael.
Hope, Death, Loneliness
Perhaps the most poignant
picture from these sections is
from the 70's. An elderly
Russian couple, their faces
lined from a life of suffering
and disillusionment, sit in a
bare Israeli apartment
surrounded only by their suit-
cases. For them homecoming
was clearly a bewildering
experience. But other pictures
of small immigrant children,
their faces brimming with
hope, depict the more optim-
istic side of the ingathering of
the exiles.
If Rubinger is strongest at
letting faces tell their own
story, he can sometimes do the
same with just a hand. In a
section entitled "Between
Heaven and Earth," his
pictures deal with death. The
most striking, taken during
-th W** of-Attrition. 1971, is
of a single hand, buried in the
sand of the Sinai Desert.
In a section called "Seers of
Their Time," we are presented
with a series of portraits of
Israel's political leaders. Ben
Gurion appears prophetic,
Teddy Kollek typically ener-
getic. But in most of these
pictures, as Golda Meir smokes
a cigarette in a quiet Knesset
corner, and Menachem Begin
walks away from the Knesset
podium, Rubinger seems to
capture the loneliness of life as
a leader.
The Council of Jewish
Federations has announced
that its 57th General Assembly
will be held Nov. 16-20 in New
Orleans. Pre-assembly session
for women's division, large
city budgeting conference and
leadership development will be
held Nov. 15.
This year's CJF assembly
theme is "Aretvim Zeh Bazeh:
Responsibility and Service,
Federation's Role in Creating
a Caring Community."
Mingled with tours of New
Orleans' French Quarter, will
be plenary sessions on the
topics of U.S. elections and
U.S.-Israeli relations.
Domestic issues will focus on
the 1990 World Jewish Popula-
tion Study; Jewish needs and
concerns in a continental
society; servicing the next
generation; maintaining the
sense of mission, creativity
and vitality; analyzing U.S.
and Israeli elections; women's
response to a tradition of
caring; financial resource
development; and preparing
new leadership for new reali-
ties.
The international agenda
will touch on issues of Middle
East peace; Israel-Diaspora
relations; strengthening advo-
cacy for Soviet and Ethiopian
Jewry; the revitalized Jewish
Agency; and understanding
the changing Arab world.
Israel Could Destroy Missiles
JERUSALEM (INB) Israel may have no choice but to
destroy the Chinese missiles recently purchased by Saudi
Arabia, according to a leading Israeli expert.
Dr. Alex Bligh, an authority on Saudi Arabian affairs at the
Truman Institute of Hebrew University, warned last week that
"Israel will have to destroy the missile batteries if they are fitted
with chemical or nuclear weapons."
American Jewish leaders presented a signed
etching by Israeli artist Amram Ebgi to Vice
President and Mrs. George Bush at a recep-
tion in the Bush's Washington house. Ebgx's
work depicts Israel's hopes for peace and pays
tribute to the Jewish state on its Wth anniver-
sary. Bush responded that U.S.-Israel rela-
tions are "vital to our country" and trans-
cend political party and political ideology.

Jackson's Influence
on Jewish Vote
WASHINGTON (JTA) A
forum here on "American
Jews and Politics, 1988"
revealed that the issue of how
much influence the Rev. Jesse
Jackson has on the Democratic
presidential candidate may be
even more a factor in how
Jews vote this November than
it was in the 1984 presidential
campaign.
Morris Amitay, former
executive director of the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee, stressed that the
way Massachusetts Gov.
Michael Dukakis "handles"
Jackson will affect the Jewish
vote "more so than any state-
ment the candidate may make
on Israel."
"Should Jackson have a
strong position in the Demo-
cratic Party, and should some
of his views with regard to
Israel prevail in any way,
shape or form, I believe there
will be a great deal of disaffec-
tion," he said.
Amitay, who called himself
"a pro-Israel lobbyist," said
that the swing vote in the
Jewish community is about 15-
20 percent and is made up of
people whose chief concern is
Israel.
He added that if the election
is close, this swing vote in such
key states as California, New
York, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, Florida, Massachu-
setts and Maryland could
decide the contest between
Dukakis and his Republican
opponent, Vice President
George Bush.
