Rabin Warns Of Arab Missiles;
Cites Threat To Israel's Security
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) Israeli
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin warned that the intro-
duction of ground-to-ground
missiles by the Arab armies
gives "a new dimension" to
the Arab-Israeli conflict and
poses a direct and serious
threat against Israel.
Addressing more than 600
Jewish business and communal
leaders at a State of Israel
Bonds luncheon at the Plaza
Hotel here, Rabin said that the
recent purchasing of ground-
to-ground missiles by several
Arab countries, and die use of
these missiles by Iraq to attack
Iranian civilian centers, is only
part of the escalating arms
race in the Middle East.
According to the defense
minister, the Arab countries
have spent between 40 and 60
billion dollars in the last year
for new arms purchases and
the maintenance of their
armies.
Syria's tank force alone,
Rabin disclosed, is three times
that of France, and twice more
than Britain's.
Rabin charged that the
Soviet Union continues to be
the main supplier of arms to
Israel's enemies.
The military threat of the
Arab armies excluding
Egypt against Israel is one
of "three levels of threat to
Israel's security," Rabin
noted.
The other two, he said, are
the terrorist threat and the
current uprising in the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Rabin said the continued
violence in the territories is a
war "against the very exist-
ence of Israel, and it is a
danger to its security and well-
being."
Declaring that the confron-
tation in the territories is no
more than the "continuing of
the war against Israel by
different means," Rabin said
that Israel will never give in to
such violence.
Israel, he said, has no choice
but "to stand up and use force
against violence."

Although Rabin said he is
ready to make compromises in
the territories, he strongly
believes that by "giving in to
violence Israel will invite more
violence and atrocities."
Israeli soldiers are
confronted with the
unpleasant task of using force
to stop the violence in the
territories, Rabin said, and he
knows that many Americans
are critical of the violence they
see on the TV screen.
But the task of the Israeli
troops who confront the
rioters is much harder and

Jerusalem
To Get New
City Hall
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
new $65 million city hall will be
constructed in Jerusalem,
uniting under one roof all the
departments of the munici-
pality, which are now
dispersed around the city.
Part of the project's funding
will be provided by the Reich-

JDC Reaches Out To Federations
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC)
has launched an outreach oper-
ation to the American Jewish
community. In the coming
months, JDC will focus its
efforts on bringing informa-
tion to the Jewish Federations
and the Jewish community at
large, according to Michael
Schneider, Executive Vice
President of JDC.
Schneider told the Board of
Directors of the JDC at their
Semi-Annual Meeting in New
York that he has been coming
into contact with a new gener-
ation of young people
throughout his travels to the
Jewish communities in the
United States. These new
leaders need to be informed
about the work of the JDC in
order to join the ranks of
veteran Board members who
have the benefit of many years
of experience. However, new
leadership is eager to learn
more about the organization.
"As the overseas relief arm
of the Jewish people, we feel
our constituency the Amer-
ican Jewish community
should be increasingly
involved in and knowledgeable
about JDC's work," said
Schneider.
He told the Board members
that, in essence, they are the
emissaries of the JDC in their
home towns. "The JDC story
is a fascinating one, and there
is a deep interest among
American Jews to hear it. It is
our intention to tell that story.
As our Board members, you
are our constituency and our
advocates," said Schneider.
Heinz Eppler, President of
JDC, told the members of the
Board that it is more
important today than ever
before for the American
Jewish community to maintain
the strong link to world Jewry
that JDC represents. "It is
important as well, for world
Jewry to have the. support and
concern of the dedicated and
active community that we in
America have become," said
Eppler.
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee has
been the overseas relief arm of
the American Jewish
community for more than 70
years. Since 1914, JDC has
provided relief, reconstruc-
tion, rehabilitation, and educa-
tion services to millions of
Jews in more than 70 countries
on all continents except North
America. Its services are
supported by contributions to
UJA-Federation campaigns
throughout the United States.

A Moving Israeli Group Experience:
The Young Adults In Israel
By LORI SCHULM AN
There's a magical quality
about people who have just
returned from Israel. Their
eyes smile and their stories
bounce from one animated
cliche to another in search of
more fitting words to describe
the indescribable.
A strengthened, almost
unbelievable conviction and
resolve usurp a person's
commitment while in Israel
and penetrate his soul upon
entering Jerusalem; and after
Federation as a result of the
mission, they probably would
just to maintain the relation-
ships they developed.
Steve Ellison, a first time
visitor to Israel, felt that the
group experience was secon-
dary to the fact that he was in
Israel. "Initially the trip
started out very slow for me,'
he said about his arrival in Tel
Aviv from New York. "Tel
Aviv was so metropolitan and
very difficult to understand for
someone who came with

Jerusalem, the city of gold.
returning, many attempt to
carry the message to all who
would share in it. Few would
argue that visitors to Israel
return touched by something
eternal, that timeless history
that we are all a part of and
have learned about from child-
hood.
"When people ask me how
Israel was, I just get this look
on my face and feel stupid
because I can't express how
beautiful and great it was,"
said Debbie Hays, who
recently returned from a 10-
day Young Adult Mission to
Israel. "It was very emotional,
but a lot of fun too," she
added.
Ms. Hays was part of a
group of 32 young adults who
participated in a Palm Beach
County Jewish Federation
YAD Mission to Israel from
June 12-22. For many of the
participants, it was their first
Israel experience, but Ms.
Hays had been on a tour ten
years ago and found that going
back on a mission left her with
very different feelings. "It was
much more meaningful to
share Israel with friends I care
about. It was a more moving
experience this time because
of that," she explained.
The group of travelers got
along "amazingly" well,
considering the diverse and
varied backgrounds everyone
came from, co-chairs Karen
and Marty List and Sonia Kay
all agreed.
"What happened was thirty-
stwo individuals came to the
j airport (on June 12) and during
pthe mission they bonded
icreating a common reference
gpoint of experiences, if not a
common goal," said Ms. Kay.
*j"It was very moving," Marty
'List added.
I Most participants felt the
gsame about the closeness of
the group and their experience
*jin Israel. They all told that old
;: friends became closer and new
' I friendships were formed. List
a felt that even if participants
didn't become involved in
certain (religious and cultural)
images and expectations."
But by his third day, Ellison
explained that the history,
culture, religion and people he
had imagined from his grand-
father's stories had material-
ized in full bloom.
must have occurred in 1948
when all those oppressed Jews
came to Israel for the first
time. It had a jarring
emotional effect on me,"
Ellison explained. "It was
almost matched by my visit in
Jerusalem, but not quite." For
most, regardless of their reli-
gious feelings, entering Jeru-
salem and approaching the
western wall is a spiritual
highlight and a deeply moving
experience.
Ellison, 28, is only the
second person in his family
who has been to Israel. He said
he would have enjoyed
spending more time talking
with Israeli citizens because he
was drawn to "the sparkle in
their eyes" and the tone of
voice that he felt expressed
their pride in being Israelis.
"It seems they felt special for
being Israeli. You don't feel
special like that in this
country," he said, "and it
really turned me on."
But Ellison said he did feel
proud throughout the whole
trip. "Traveling in Israel is an
opportunity to feel proud of
something that you are vs.
something you've done," he
said. "You spend your whole
life doing and accomplishing
things and never just feeling
froud for who you are. In
Brael I felt proud just for
being Jewish."
In Rick Brenner's family
everyone has already traveled
in Israel and now that he has
been there, he feels inspired to
Heading toward Nahal David in Ein Gedi with the Dead Sea
in the background.
The highlight of Ellison's
trip took place in Zfat. "My
real visions of Israel were
fulfilled there," he said. In the
morning of the second day
before the group left the
mystical city, they visited one
of the ancient synagogues in
the Jewish quarter.
"When suddenly this
busload of elderly women from
somewhere in the middle east,
maybe Yemen, came into the
synagogue and started kissing
the walls and the ark and the
benches. They showed such
emotion for this place. They
were chanting to themselves
and had huge smiles on their
faces," Ellison explained,
trying to convey the power of
the feelings he obviously still
had for his experience there.
"The emotion and spirit and
commitment of these women
in their fervent prayer really
gave me a picture of what
inspire others. "Going on a
mission is a chance not only to
meet young, interesting, intel-
ligent caring people in the
community, but it's a chance to
do something beneficial for the
Jewish community and
Israel," he said. "Since being
in Israel, I feel more politically
aware of what's going on there
and I can better talk about it
with others. I think you should
go as young as possible," he
continued, "because then you
develop more of an affinity
with the country earlier on."
Next year Brenner hopes to
be able to inspire others to get
involved in the Jewish Federa-
tion as a member of the Lead-
ership Development
Committee.
Highlights of a 10-day tour
Over piles of pictures and
photo albums a week after
their return, three of the co-
chairs began highlighting the
Mission through rapid fire
storytelling and recounted
memories of each day.
"We really saw the range of
Israeli society and the prob-
lems each group had coping
with life in Israel," List
explained The mission met
with members of a group of
young Israeli professionals
called the Israeli Forum; the
less privileged members of
Hod Hasharon, a Project
Renewal community and Palm
Beach County's twinned city
in Israel; and members of a
kibbutz, which as a movement,
comprises much of Israel's
middle class.
One of the highlights of the
trip for Marty List was
meeting with the professional
young people in the Israeli
Forum whose main goal is to
establish relationships with
young Jewish people
throughout the diaspora in an
effort to create a better under-
standing of Israelis and Israeli
society.
"We definitely got a
different view of Israel from a
group of professionals who are
really involved, the movers
and shakers of Israeli society,"
said List. Some of the Israelis
mission participants met with
include the deputy general of
the city of Jerusalem, the chief
advisor in Jerusalem Mayor
Teddy Kollek's office and a
leading fur exporter.
"But we also enjoyed each
other's company," Ms. List
added. "We didn t just discuss
politics and current issues."
Sonia Kay, a mission co-
chair with her husband Jim,
explained that the members of
this group were also very busi-
ness oriented and wanted to
recruit Americans to invest in
Israel. Some good contacts
were made, they all agreed,
and some members of the
mission will certainly stay in
touch with their friends in the
Israeli Forum.
Everyone I spoke to agreed

invited all participants to a

mission had the opportunity to

tive Director Jeffrey Klein.

Soviets To Return Jewish Center Translations Into Yiddish
NEW YORK (JTA) A
former Jewish community
center in Moscow will be
returned to its owner,
Moscow's famous Choral
Synagogue, 47 years after it
was requisitioned by the
Soviet authorities to serve as a
hospital for war casualties.
An agreement was reached
last week between Rabbi
Arthur Schneier, president of
the Appeal of Conscience
Foundation, and Mayor Valery
Saikin of Moscow for the
transfer, which has been
approved by the Moscow City
Council.
Schneier said his congrega-
tion will help pay for restoring
the 100-year-old building,
which stands next to the
Choral Synagogue, the largest
in the Soviet Union, on Arkhi-
pova Street.
It will send architects and
construction specialists to
Moscow for that purpose.
Schneier, who is rabbi of the
Park East Synagogue in
Manhattan, said he began to
campaign for the return of the
building 18 months ago, in
talks with Konstantin Khar-
chev, chairman of the Council
of Religious Affairs of the
Soviet Council of Ministers.
Earlier this month, the
Soviet government returned
property to the Russian
Orthodox Church that it has
controlled since the 1920s.
"It's part of a process that
seeks to align religious
believers with perestroika
(reconstruction) and the
rebuilding of Soviet society,"
said Schneier, whose founda-
tion promotes religious
freedom worldwide.
He said it was unlikely the
synagogue's annex would have
been returned five years ago.
The building, which was
requistioned in 1941, now
houses a medical school. The
two doors connecting it to the
synagogue are sealed.
The transfer will be finalized
when Mayor Saikin signs a
contract with Rabbi Adolph
Shayevich of the Choral Syna-
gogue.
Foreskins Become Bandages
EAST ORANGE, N.J. (JTA)
Traditionally discarded by
mohelim after a brit milah
ritual circumcision infant
foreskins may be put to use as
"living bandages," according
to The Jewish News.
Dr. Tania Phillips, a fellow in
dermatology at Boston
University School of Medicine,
has been researching a tech-
nique whereby cells from
infant foreskins are cultured in
a process that allows the cells
to reproduce, creating a skin
patch used to stimulate the
healing of wounds.
The translucent, jelly-like
"bandages" are stapled to a
gauze pad and placed on the
wound.
Phillips told The Jewish
News that she is not
completely certain how the
bandage works. "We think it
stimulates a patient's older
cells to start growing again,"
she said.
The procedure is acceptable
under lalacha, or Jewish law,
according to Rabbi Moses
Tendler, a professor of
biology, Talmudic law and
medical ethics at New York's
Yeshiva University. He said he
sees no reason why mohelim
could not provide hospitals
with the otherwise discarded
foreskins, adding, "If there's
any real utility for mankind, it
would be a mitzvah to coop-
erate."
Phillips said she can't
predict when the living
bandages will be available for
widespread use. Presently the
research is just at the Boston
University hospital level, and
the technique will eventually
have to gain the approval of
the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration.
AMHERST, Mass. (JTA) -
A 24-page catalog, which is
being distributed to major
university and research
libraries by the National
Yiddish Book Center, features
over 300 out-of-print Yiddish
translations of world litera-
ture.
The items, most of which
were translated during the
first half of the twentieth
century, represent 14 original
languages.
Some major Yiddish writers
translated many of the titles,
including Isaac Bashevis
Singer, who supported himself
in Warsaw in the early 1930's
by translating into Yiddish
novels like Thomas Mann's
"The Magic Mountain" and
Erich Maria Remarque's "All
Quiet on the Western Front."
The Center, which published
the catalog with help from a
grant from the Albert A. List
Foundation of New York City
and from the Center's 13,000
members, has collected some
750,000 Yiddish books since
1980, when the non-profit
organization was founded by
young students and scholars.
Labor Has Edge Over Likud
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
According to the latest series
of polls little more than four
months before elections, the
Labor Party holds a small edge
over Likud among Israeli
voters. But neither of the
major parties will win a large
enough mandate to govern by
itself.
The PORI organization
surveyed 1,200 "undecided"
voters who, according to its
Appeal For Jews Of Yemen
JERUSALEM (JTA) An
Israeli living in Canada
charged that Israel has not
done enough to help the Jews
of Yemen, and he called it
disgraceful.
Moshe Nahum, interviewed
by the army radio, spoke on
behalf of the World Committee
for the Rescue of Yemen's
Jews, which he heads.
He said there are presently
some 6,000 Jews in Yemen
dispersed over more than 35
localities.
director, Raphael Gil, consti-
tute about 20 percent of the
electorate at this juncture.
About one-fifth of them want a
Labor victory, compared to 13
percent who favor Likud, Gil
said.
The results, published in
Haaretz, also found that 50
percent of the undecided
voters favor territorial conces-
sions for peace, 34 percent do
not and 16 percent have no
opinion. Territorial compro-
mise is a position associated
with Labor. It is opposed by
Likud.
A Dahaf poll conducted at
the beginning of June among
769 persons showed Labor
winning 42 to 43 seats in the
next Knesset to 40 seats for
Likud. At least 61 seats are
needed to govern.

handle on what we (the Feder-
ation) are all about," Ms. Kay
said.
This Young Adult Mission
initiated the fundraising for a
children's reading corner in
the library of the new
community center and brought
a book of children's poems by a
famous Israeli author as a gift
to the library.
"I would have liked to have
seen the neighborhoods five
years ago before so many
changes occurred," Brenner
said about his first trip to Palm
Beach County's twinned
communities. According to
Ms. Kay, who had visited Hod
Hasharon in 1983, many
changes had been completed:
new homes were built and
older ones had been renovated,
the children's center and
senior center were both
finished, the streets had been
paved and beautiful gardens
dotted the entire community.
"It looked healthy," Ms. List
said describing the area. "It
appeared to have a much
improved standard of living."
After a few hours touring
the neighborhoods and
meeting residents, the group
had lunch with some seniors in
the Ribakoff Senior Center.
"The most difficult part was
getting everyone to leave the
Jeanne and Irwin Levy Day
Care Center," said Ms. Kay.
"People really wanted to stay
with the kids. You should have
seen the men playing with
these children. It was beau-
tiful," she said.
The list of highlights does
not end here. It is an almost
endless colorful collage of "Oh
yeahs, and "Then there was
the time that ..." Over ten
days, tolerance and under-
standing, changes and growth,
education and awareness had
replaced stereotypes, expecta-
tions and years of book know-
ledge for many who partici-
pated in the mission.
"It was so interesting to
watch myself and everyone
else change over the course of
ten days,' said Rick Brenner.
"Stereotypes about so many
things were just melted away
by the reality there, stereo-
types that came from igno-
rance a lack of knowledge,"
he said. "Now I've been there
and seen for myself."

A Minion Rap
Day three is gone, we're here to spout it
As Shmulik says, let's talk about it
This day had fun and it sure had magic
It also was rather poly-syllabic.
The San Pedros joined us one day late
Their children's passports wouldn't rate
For their efforts they deserve an ovation
Although their kids are grounded for the duration.
Shmulik said "Let's go to shul"
We thought for sure this would be cool
The Russian "bubbies" then invaded
And with a "bracha" we all faded.
We were climbin' up the Golan Heights
Poppin' our ears and seein' the sights
When we stopped to inspect an army unit
Crawled over a tank and nearly ruined it.
Talked to kids who were carryin' arms
Knowing they'd be first to respond to alarms
Resigned, yet eager, all much too young
Their dreams and duty left unsung.
Next to the vineyards and the wine
When we got there weren 't feelin' so fine
But saw the barrels, bottles and it tasted so right
When we left the Golan we'd all reached new heights.
Kibbutz Nof Ginossar was the setting for lunch
We had a hunch it'd be the best of the bunch
Zoomin' away from a cooling swim
Refreshed and feeling fit and trim.
Dani got stopped by a cop who looked real mean
Y 'see the planes have radar but the buses are clean.
The schedules tight so don't be late
Shmulik does not like to wait
If you do you'll be past tense
Because we'll leave you by the "fence."

Tisha B'Av
By RABBI
RANDALL J. KONIGSBURG
"Five disasters befell our
ancestors on the 17th of
Tammuz-five on the ninth of
Av.
On the 17th of Tammuz
Moses broke the first set of the
Ten Commandments when he
saw the people of Israel
worship the golden calf.
During the seige of Jerusalem
it was on this day that the daily
offerings to G-d were
suspended due to famine, the
outer walls of Jerusalem were
breached. On this day in
Hasmonean times, an officer
of Antiocus burned the Torah
and set up an idol in the
Temple.
On the ninth of Av in Mosaic
times the people were
informed that they would not
enter the promised land, only
their children would inherit it.
The Temple was destroyed
twice, once by the Babylonians
and once by the Romans.
Betar, the last fortress of Bar
Kochba fell on this day and on
the same day Jerusalem was
ploughed up and forbidden to
Jews.
With the advent of Av, we
should limit rejoicing."
This is a quote from one of
the oldest Jewish law codes,
the Mishna. We are now in the
middle of a three week period
between Tammuz 17th and Av
9th. It is a somber period with
weddings and celebrations
forbidden.
We could ask, what makes
this period so much sadder
than any other time on the
Jewish calendar. A quick
survey of Jewish history is all
it would take to convince us
that every day on the calendar
probably contains five or more
reasons to be somber. Jewish
history is not pleasant.
These ten disasters that
befell our ancestors were not
the ten worst disasters in the
history of our people. They are
however, a symbol of them all.
Just as Judaism has Sukkot
and Purim for rejoycing we
have the 17th of Tammuz and
the 9th of Av for sorrow.
Those days do not serve as a
memorial for fallen soldiers, it
is instead a reminder for Jews
with fallen ideals. The disas-
ters that occurred on these
days was the result of the
personal and interpersonal
failings of the Jewish people.
These disasters followed long
periods of rebellion, robbery,
immorality, causeless hatred
and rejection of Jewish ideals.
These days remind us of what
becomes of nations who forget
the virtues of truth, fairness,
justice, mercy and compassion
for others.
It is an important lesson for
this time of year. Just seven
weeks after the ninth of Av
will begin the Yamim Noraim,
the days of Awe. A time for
searching our souls to rout out
our flaws and once again strive
to live by the laws G-d has set
out for us in the Torah.
The three weeks are a period
of rebuke warnings of what
can happen when a people
forget how to act humanely.
The seven weeks are a period
of consolation, to remind us
that no matter how far we may
have strayed, there is always
room for one who repents.
The Jewish year rapidly
draws to a close. These somber
days call to us to assess our
lives and to prepare for the
new year with a firm resolve
not to repeat the sorrowful
history of our people which at
this season we recall.
The Search For
The Unaffiliated Jews
By GARY A. TOBIN
Captain Kirk and the crew
went searching for Dr. Spock
in a recent Star Trek reprise.
Porgy went searching for
Bess. Sidney Greenstreet and
a slippery Peter Loire went on
one more troubled expedition
to find the Maltese Falcon.
Meanwhile, Jewish organiza-
tions and institutions continue
to seek the ever elusive "unaf-
filiated Jew."
The search for the unaffili-
ated Jew is a misguided effort.
The biggest problem we face is
not in rates of affiliation,
either with synagogues or
temples or other Jewish organ-
izations. It is levels of involve-
ment that should concern us
most.
"Proportionately,
few Jews are totally
disconnected, totally
unaffiliated."
Study after study in the
1980s, whether in St. Louis,
San Francisco, Baltimore,
New Orleans, or other cities,
show that most Jews are affili-
ated. Some may belong to a
synagogue or temple. Others
belong to one Jewish organiza-
tion or another. Most Jews
make some nominal gift to
some Jewish philanthropy.
Most Jewish children receive
some Jewish education. The
majority attend High Holiday
services, even if they do not
belong to a synagogue or
temple. When all of these are
added together, the total
encompasses the great
majority of Jews. Those who
do none of these things are
likely to be over the age of 65,
and used to belong to some
organization or institution, or
under the age of 30, and plan
to join in the future. Propor-
tionately, few Jews are totally
disconnected, totally unaffili-
ated. Rates of true non-
affiliation are found to be
highest among intermarried
Jews.
The real problem can be
found in the level of commit-
ment, involvement, and
activity for connected Jews
who are inactive within the
organizational and institu-
tional structure. The reason
Jewish organizations search so
hard for unaffiliated Jews is
because most affiliated Jews
are invisible within the Jewish
communal structure. They are
members, but in name only.
While Jews give something
to Jewish causes, the vast
majority give only a few
dollars. Most Jews who belong
to Jewish organizations volun-
teer no time for them. Jews go
to a synagogue or temple, but
only once or twice a year, or to
drop off their children at
Hebrew school.
"How long have you had this fear of bagels?"
1067 David S Boxerman and Marti Saundars. All rights reserved
The search for the unaffili-
ated is a cop-out. It allows
Jewish organizations to focus
outward instead of looking
critically inward. Jews are
already connected in
some way, or will be, or used
to be. Certainly we should
make every attempt to reach
out to those who are totally
outside the organizational and
institutional structure. But
that search should not serve as
a smoke screen to the obvious
problems of involving those
who will be marginally drawn
to Jewish communal life at
some point. Marriages, birth of
children, children becoming
school age, illness and death
are all life cycle events that
bring Jews into contact with
Jewish organizations and insti-
tutions. What do we do to
expand that contact?
The most pressing and
vital challenge we have is
increasing levels of involve-
ment and participation. That
requires creating new volun-
teer jobs, undertaking new
and broader agendas in our
institutions and organizations,
opening up leadership circles,
providing different and more
numan services. It means
more creative religious
services and educational
programs. It means social
events that are vibrant and
exciting. It means diversity in
what we do and the ways we
do it.
Jewish organizations and
agencies must be willing to
change and experiment. Jews'
lack of involvement is partly
due to the competition of a
secular society and the weak-

JF & CS Announces
100 Percent Increase
The Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service of Palm Beach
County announced recently at
its second annual meeting, at
the Palm Hotel, that it has
increased its professional
staff, revenues and services to
meet the growing needs of the
community.
Along with the generous
allocations from the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County and The United Way,
the JF & CS has been accepted
as a member of the Palm
Beach Community Chest,
which will provide another
annual source of funding.
According to David
Schwartz, President of JF &
CS, the additional funding
enabled the agency to increase
its professional staff from 8
full-time positions to 12.5, a 50
percent increase. As a result,
services increased by 100
percent.
In the past year, the agency
has been expanding with the
rapid growth of Palm Beach
County. More people have
received services due to the
staffs tremendous case load.
The total number of cases
served in 1986/1987 was 451
and 1987/1988, 924, a 100
percent increase.
Schwartz discussed three
new programs established in

the community. These include
the Jewish Information, Assis-
tance & Referral Service,
which enables individuals to
gain information via telephone
from the JF & CS offices;
Link-To-Life, an in-home
emergency monitoring device
that connects to the telephone
and when activated, signals
emergency vehicles and
doctors to the emergency situ-
ation, allowing seniors to live
at home instead of a nursing
facility; and the AIDS
Outreach support group was
established to give nope,
comfort and AIDS education
to victims and their families.
Other changes and develop-
ments at JF & CS include the
establishment of a Resource
Development Committee that
held a successful membership
drive; a Long Range Planning
Committee that is progressing
with a 5-year plan for the
agency; and a Second Annual
Board Retreat, held in
January and enjoyed by all.
Future plans for the JF &
CS include satellite offices in
Century Village, West Palm
Beach, and Boynton Beach, to
supplement the current Palm
Beach Lakes Boulevard facil-
ities; accreditation by the
National Council of Accredita-
tion; and a permanent home on
the community campus,

understand Alzheimers, but
who are willing to help a fellow
human being.
In-home assessments of a
caregiver's needs will allow a
compatible match to be made
between the trainee, the care-
giver and the Alzheimer
patient. Support will be
provided for the trainee. The
J.C.C. will be providing a
recreational therapist to
explain in-home therapy to the
patient. The JF & CS, the
backbone of the program, will
be providing a trainee support
group, a professional staff to
assist in anyway possible and a
stipend.
The HRS grant, presented
to Jupiter Hospital for the past
two years, was awarded to the
JF & CS for the presentation
of an innovative program
consisting of healthy retirees
providing respite services, as
well as meeting the State and
Federal guidelines and
requirements.
"It is an innovative program
never attempted before. We
feel that three populations will
be served by this grant the
Caregiver, who desperately
needs relief, the Alzheimer
patient, who needs a safe
supervised environment and
the retiree, who supervises
that environment and has the
opportunity to help a
neighbor," said Ms. Jenni
Frummer, Assistant Depart-
ment Director of Geriatric
Services. "We are very excited
and optimistic about the
program."
A Project Director will be
appointed to head a
networking committee
consisting of all Palm Beach
County agencies providing
services. All Alzheimer
patients with a caregiver
spouse are eligible for the
program. Those who may not
be eligible for services
provided by the grant will be
referred to those agencies that
may better serve their needs.
The JF & CS, at this time, is
taking names of those retired
individuals interested in this
program, beginning the middle
of August. If you have any
questions or would like to be
included on the list to help
with respite care, call the
offices of JF & CS at 684-1991.

Centenarian Dances Through Retirement
By LORI SCHULMAN
June 24th, 1988 was
proclaimed ''Abe
Goldberg Day" by West Palm
Beach Mayor Pat "Pepper"
Schwab, in honor of Mr. Gold-
berg's membership in an exclu-
sive society, trie Florida
Centenarian Society. In fact,
Goldberg is the society's first
honorary charter member at
the age of 103.
"He was just an ordinary,
simple man who has become a
celebrity just for turning 103,"
Goldberg s oldest son Isadore
said at a party held in his
father's honor at the Jewish
Community Center of the
Palm Beaches on June 24th.
The party was one of several
celebrations the Goldbergs
held for Goldberg's 103rd
birthday.
Over 120 people came to
celebrate and honor the rare
accomplishment of this vener-
able gentleman. In a room
filled with friends, colorful
balloons and streamers, Gold-
berg sat in a high backed
armchair, resembling a king's
throne, and listened to a
variety of people help mark
this significant occasion. There
were speeches given, poems
read, pictures taken, videos
filmed and a kosher lunch was
served, followed by cake and
dancing. The agile Abe and his
dance partner, Sally, gave a
remarkable dance demonstra-
tion before lunch.
Dressed in a light blue suit
with a velvet blue yarmulkah
atop his head, the thin gent-
leman, with silver hair still
poking out from under his
skullcap, smiled at remarks
made about his life and nodded
at the clapping audience
surrounding him. In honor of
his own birthday, Goldberg
handed a $103 check to Jean
Rubin, Director of the J.C.C.
Senior Center, before making
a short speech.
"I think it's tremendous,"
said West Palm Beach Vice
Mayor James Poole about the
occasion. "It's an honor to be
here to share in the joy of Abe
and his family. The city is very
happy we were invited and are
able to witness the mental
alertness and physical ability
of this remarkable man."
Senator Lawton Chiles sent
a special communique from
Washington stating that Abe
Goldberg's Birthday would be
recorded in the Congressional
Record of Friday, June 24.
"I think it's the greatest
thing in the world," said Gold-
berg's son, "He's a celebrity
everywhere." According to
Isadore, his father is
completely maintaining his
health unaided by pills or medi-
cines. He loves to dance, party
and spend time with his family.
Also attending Abe's
unusual party were JCC senior
board member Sidney Berger
and Leslie Kalinowski, Becky
Gregory and Jack Steele from
the Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services Aging
and Adult Services.
"My grandfather is an
amazing guy," said Steve Gold
who flew in from St. Louis for
his grandfather's birthday.
Abe Goldberg and dance partner, Sally, shuffle and slide
across the dance floor.
He always took good care of
us and we enjoy taking care of
him now."
After emigrating to New
York in 1908 from a small
village in Poland, Goldberg
went to work as a silkweaver
in Paterson. New Jersey and
was very active in the labor
union movement until his
retirement in 1952.
The centenarian, now
entering his 36th year of active
retirement, moved to Hialeah
in 1952 and came to West
Palm Beach at the age of 100.
Goldberg has been dancing
and traveling his way through
"active retirement." At 70, he
began dance lessons; when he
was 85 he went to Israel for
the first time; and just before
his 100th birthday he traveled
to California to see the Pacific
Ocean.
"How long can a man live?"
Goldberg, father of five with
ten grandchildren, asked at his
birthday party. "I lived to be
100; I didn't know I'd keep
going."
Hadassah To Replace 100,000 Trees
JERUSALEM Hadassah,
the Women's Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, announced
that it will plant 100,000 trees
to replace those destroyed by
arsonists widely believed to be
carrying out directives from
Palestinian leadership in the
West Bank.
The announcement was
made by Hadassah National
President Ruth W. Popkin at a
meeting of the Zionist General
Council here. "For every tree
that is destroyed by arson, we
will plant two, said Mrs.
Popkin.
More than 60,000 acres of
forest have been lost over the
last months to fires that began
inside Israel shortly after the
leadership of the Palestinian
unrest in the occupied terri-
tories issued a leaflet calling
on Arab residents "to destroy
and burn the enemy's agricul-
tural and industrial
resources."
Mrs. Popkin said Hadassah
will pay the cost of the plant-
ings, which will be carried out
by trie Jewisii lNaiionai Fund.
Hadassah and JNF have
worked closely together for
more than 60 years on a range
of projects to reclaim and
develop the land of Israel.

Jewish
Museums
Flourishing
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
number of Jewish museums in
the world is rapidly rising, as
indicated by the opening of at
least a dozen new institutions
in the past 18 months.
The new museums bring the
estimated worldwide total to
300, not including the many
small museums and exhibits on
Jewish themes that exist,
mainly in the United States, in
synagogues and community
centers.
According to Prof. Bezalel
Narkiss, director of the Center
for Jewish Art at Hebrew
University, the proliferation is
particularly noticeable in the
United States and in West
Germany.
At last month's second
International Seminar on
Jewish Art, held at the univer-
sity, Narkiss introduced repre-
sentatives of some of the more
unusual new museums,
including institutions in
Amsterdam, Budapest, Basel
and Braunschweig, West
Germany.
There is no more Jewish
community in Braunschweig,
and the curator of the Landes-
museum there is a non-Jew.
But the museum, which
houses the restored interior of
an 18th-century synagogue
orginally from nearby Horn-
burg, attempts to trace the
flourishing as well as the
destruction of German Jewry.
Narkiss said his Center for
Jewish Art is gathering
detailed, computerized infor-
mation about all of the world's
Jewish museums in hopes of
publishing a directory.

rests partly with Jewish
organizations and institutions
themselves. How creative,
energetic, and open have they
been to new ideas, new
[programs, and new faces?
Federations, temples, syna-
gogues, and all other organiza-
tions must stop asking "how
lo we bring more people
/ithin our walls?" and seri-
ously consider "how can we
expand our walls to the places
vhere people live and think

[thousands of Jews with name-

our institutional and organiza-
tional doors. It is our
communal task to ensure that
they do not walk right back out
again.

Bill Passes
First Reading
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) An
electoral reform bill which
would replace the present
system of proportional repre-
sentation passed its first
reading in the Knesset by an
impressive 69-37 majority.
The bill will need the votes of
at least 61 of the 120 Knesset
members on its second and
third readings in order to
become law. It would institute
the direct election of Knesset
members on a regional basis.
The reform is considered
long overdue by many in
Israel's legal establishment
and the political community.
The fragmented vote arising
from the present system has
prevented any single party
from governing, except in coal-
ition with disparate and often
recalcitrant splinter parties.
The reform is fiercely
opposed by the religious
parties, which represent a
small minority of the elec-
torate and owe their Knesset
representation to the present
system.
Under that system, Israelis
do not vote for their legislators
but for .party lists. Knesset
seats are then apportioned
according to the number of
votes each party wins.

eace Group Lauds Statement By PLO Spokesperson
(NEW YORK (JTA) -
ffteen prominent Jews,
jmbers of the International
inter For Peace in the
[iddle East, welcomed a
[cent statement by a top
Iviser to Palestine Liberation
rganization chief Yasir
fat.
"he statement, by PLO
lokesman Bassam Abu
rif, advocates direct peace
Igotiations between Israel
the PLO.
Their response to the docu-
int "Prospects for a
klestinian-Israeli Settle-
mt" which was distri-
ted at the recent Arab
imit meeting in Algiers,
" it "the clearest expres-
thus far, by any Pales-
i official, of a readiness to
jotiate peace between Israel
the Palestinians."
lile Arafat's radical rivals
ive condemned the Abu
larif paper, Arafat himself
emed to endorse it by saying
lat in the wake of the
roposal, "the United States
_ it now to make a gesture
jward the PLO."
The document envisions the
/entual creation of an inde-
pendent Palestinian state,
existing peacefully alongside
srael.
Abu Sharif writes that "the
leans by which the Israelis
rant to achieve lasting peace
id security is by direct talks,
nth no attempt by any outside
)arty to impose or veto a
ettlement.
'The Palestinians agree,"
le continues. "The key to a
'alestinian-Israeli settlement
lies in talks between the Pales-
tinians and Israelis."

The only reason, he
continues, that the PLO has
not publicly accepted U.N.
Security Council Resolutions
242 and 338 is because
"neither resolution says
anything about the national
rights of Palestinians."
The American-Jewish
response was coordinated by
the American section of the
Tel Aviv based International
Center, a worldwide coalition
of scholars, politicians, busi-
ness executives and religious
leaders.
They proposed that the docu-
ment, "if amplified and
substantiated by further Pales-
tinian declarations, could
serve as a significant step
toward political dialogue."

Newstein introduced his staff
and stated that the challenge
for the coming year will be "to
stretch ourselves to the limit,
to reach out with every ounce
of energy we (collectively)
possess to help as many people
as possible."
In a speech titled,
"Ethnicity, Antidote to
Crisis," guest speakers,
Joseph Giordano and Irving
Levine of the American Jewish
Committee's Institute for
American Pluralism discussed
the unique qualities of ethnic
groups and why customs and
ideals must be maintained and
respected for future genera-
tions. Earlier that day, Gior-
dano and Levine also
conducted a workshop, spon-
sored by the Jewish Family &
Children's Service, for Jewish
communal workers in the
community.
City Hall
Continued from Page 1
of the pre-1967 border area of
downtown, facing the Old City
walls.
Plans call for the construc-
tion of the city hall complex at
the end of Jaffa Road, opposite
the New Gate of the Old City,
preserving the British-built
main offices of the municipal-
ilty and the facades of other
architecturally valuable build-
ings in the area.
Ron International Ltd., a
Reichmann-owned subsidiary,
will undertake construction
and will loan the city $30
million for 20 years. The sale
of properties now housing the
city offices will pick up any
slack in funding.
Museums

The center also plans a Jeru-
salem Index of Jewish Art, a
project involving the documen-
tation and computer catalogu-
ing of all artifacts which have
been made by, for or about
Jews.
