A Place For Us: The JC Campus Becomes Reality

Surrounded by a fresh man-
made lake, manicured shub-
bery and multi-colored flowers
is the architectural rendering
of the future Jewish Commun-
ity Campus of the Palm
Beaches, pictured above. It
will be built on a 33-acre site
on the corner of Military Trail
(front) and 12th Street, which
will be renamed Community
Drive, (side, left). The complex
of buildings in front is the
Jewish Community Center,
over 90,000 sq. ft., which will
include a pre-school, complete
physical recreation center
including outdoor pool, tennis
courts, gymnasium, soccer
field, baseball diamond, and
racquetball courts. The Center
will also house a kosher cafe
and separate centers for sen-
iors, young adults and teen-
agers. The detached building
to the left of the Jewish Com-
munity Center will house the
offices of the Jewish Federa-
tion and the Jewish Family &
Children's Service. As plans
for the buildings progress and
solidify, the actual rendering
may change somewhat. The
concept, however, has been
approved and this is how the
future JCCampus of the Palm
Beaches will eventually look.
Continuing The Partnership
Project Renewal Update
The growth we have seen in
Palm Beach County's twinned
Project Renewal neighbor-
hoods over the past eight years
has been phenomenal.
In 1980, the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County, in
cooperation with the Jewish
Federation of South Broward,
adopted Hod Hasharon, north-
east of Tel Aviv, as its Project
Renewal twinned city. As we
entered a relationship with
two impoverished neighbor-
hoods in that city, Gil Amal
and Giora, our community
committed to raising over $1
million to provide social pro-
grams and upgrade buildings
for 1,000 families living in pov-
erty there.
Eight years and $1 million
later, the Palm Beach County
Jewish Community has not
only helped Hod Hasron resi-
dents reach their goals of
building a better fife and
becoming responsible for
themselves and the future of
their children, but through
repeated visits and ongoing
correspondence with them, we
have had the opportunity to
develop intimate and long-
lasting relationships.
In our twinned neighbor-
hoods, where the roads were
once mud and full of holes,
housing conditions were
deplorable and children were
neglected and abandoned to
the streets, families now live in
renovated two-story homes on
paved streets with shrubbery
lined sidewalks and flowers.
More importantly, Gil Amal
and Giora s youth have been
rescued from the downward
spiral of street life and are now
ftarticipating in some sort of
earning situation, whether
academic or vocational. Sports
programs and special counsel-
ing are also offered through a
moadon, or youth center, that
was specifically created to give
these children a place of their
own, where they could feel
free to just be themselves.
Through the Jeanne and
Irwin Levy Day Care Center
dedicated in October, 1985 in
Giora, young children have
been able to play and learn in a
warm and supportive environ-
ment while mothers, knowing
their children are well cared
for, work outside the home to
provide their families with a
second income.
At the Michael C. Burrows
Early Childhood Enrichment
Center, opened in September
1987 in Giora, parents of in-
fants and newborns are
offered a variety of health and
educational programs that
teach the skills necessary for
children's future learning and
success.
And recently the Beit Ha'am,
a new community center in Gil
Amal, was completed provid-
ing an outlet for a variety of
innovative social and educa-
tional programs and activities
for residents. The center con-
sists of three separate build-
ings the Ribakoff Elderly
Center, the Salzman Early
Childhood Development Cen-
ter, and the Mortimer Harri-
son Neighborhood Center.
Senior Center activities, Adult
Center activities and educa-
tion, and an After-School
Home Environment Center
are just some of the outstand-

Ethiopian Groups Join Drive Lion ofJudah Worker's Training
WASHINGTON (JTA) A
petition campaign calling on
the Ethiopian government to
allow Ethiopian Jews to join
their families abroad has been
launched in Israel by an
unprecedented coalition of
Ethiopian immigrant associa-
tions, who in the past have not
been united in their appeals to
American Jewish groups.
"The situation is so terrible
that it demanded that we work
all together in coordination,"
said Rachamim Elazar, chair-
man of the National Council of
Ethiopian Jews in Israel.
The petition calls on the
Ethiopian government, a sig-
natory of the Universal Declar-
ation of Human Rights of the
United Nations, to abide by
the clause which permits the
unification of families separ-
ated by migration.
An estimated 10,000 Ethio-
pian Jews, mostly women,
children and the elderly,
remain trapped in Ethiopia.
The petition is being sup-
ported and circulated by the
American Association for
Ethiopian Jews, the American
Rabbinic Network for Ethio-
pian Jewry, the World Union
of Jewish Students, the Union
of American Hebrew Congre-
gations, as well as dozens of
American synagogues and
youth groups.
More than 15,000 signatures
have been collected so far.
To help distribute petitions,

Home In
Montreal For
Handicapped
MONTREAL (JTA) A long-
term solution has been found
for eight mentally and physi-
cally handicapped Jewish chil-
dren in a house in the neigh-
borhood of Cote des Neiges.
Called Maison Shalom, the
duplex located at 4927 Car-
leton Ave. will accommodate
boys and girls ranging from
ages 8 to 18, who will remain
at the home permanently. Cur-
rently they are living with
their parents or in institutions.
The house will also provide a
respite bed to relieve tired or
emotionally drained relatives,
according to a report in the
Canadian Jewish News.
So far, more than $125,000
Canadian have been raised
among private donors, but
that figure falls short of the
$160,000 projected operating
budget for the first year. Mai-
son Shalom has applied for
provincial and federal grants
for which it may be eligible.
But besides raising money,
says Co-President Malka Stei-
glitz, one of the biggest diffi-
culties has been in finding suit-
able houseparents.
Because of the hiring prob-
lem, the house is considering
hiring any two qualified peo-
f>le, such as nurses or order-
ies, who have experience in
caring for the disabled.
In addition, the home will
employ a housekeeper and two
workers who will assist at
peak periods of the day. Allied
Jewish Community Services
has already earmarked money
to provide the home with a
part-time social worker.
Donations of furniture or
other home supplies, and pro-
fessional services are wel-
come. Call (514) 737-2742.
Meyer B. Siskin Memorial Fund
The Meyer B. Siskin Memorial Fund was established in
1987 to fund Human Resource Development programs
for community leadership. These programs have been
provided through the National Jewish Center for Learn-
ing and Leadership (CLAL). Contributions to the Fund
can be made through the Endowment Program of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. For further

tor, the Jewish Federation, 832-2120.

Balanced Budgetary Aid
President Reagan's final budget proposal to
Congress maintained an annual appropriation
of $3 billion in aid to Israel. He thus continued
his well-deserved reputation as one of the
Jewish state's most reliable supporters ever to
serve in the White House.
There is every indication that President-
elect Bush and the new Congress will continue
the economic support to Israel, America's
most dependable ally in the Middle East.
It should be noted that Egypt alone will
receive $2.3 billion in the 1990 fiscal year,
even though Cairo does not hesitate to side
with the Third World's predominantly anti-
Washington stance.
Securing Safe Skies
Global attention to airline and airport se-
curity during recent weeks has focused in part
on El Al Israel Airlines' stringent measures
and its enviable safety record.
Instant polls of the traveling public indicate
that most passengers are more than willing to
endure the minor delays and annoyances of
the El Al system in exchange for greater
safety.
But the unchecked threat of international
terrorism allows no time to applaud the Israel
national airline. Only massive and concerted
action against terrorism anywhere and every-
where promises to solve the problem.
Unethical Research
West German university officials seem to
have missed the point with their denials that
no Jewish victims' remains are being used in
research when the state television station
reported that tissues and bones of Holocaust
victims were still being utilized for medical
investigation.
With no official denial of the practice, it
would seem that the mindset which allowed
experimentation on Hitler's hapless victims
has not been expunged from the German
mentality.
That the bodies' identities are known
some apparently were prominent anti-Nazis
further compounds the insensitivity, even
after 45 years.

In Memoriam of a Trusted Collaboration
By MARC H. TANENBAUM
The life and monumental
career of Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. whose birthday is
observed on Jan. 15 was
deeply intertwined with Amer-
ican Jews.
During a memorial observ-
ance we held for King in
Atlanta some years ago, his
father, the Rev. "Daddy"
King, declared with deep emo-
tion, "The Jewish people were
the best and most trusted
friends of Dr. King and the
movement."
He then detailed how an
Atlanta Jewish lawyer and
accountant had literally saved
the infant civil rights move-
ment from politically-inspired
efforts of the Internal Reve-
nue Service to snuff it out.
I first met Dr. King in Feb-
ruary 1963. I had the privilege
of serving as the program
chairman of the National Con-
ference on Religion and Race
held in Chicago.
That participation of the late
Dr. Abraham Joshua Heschel
and Cardinal Moyer of Chicago
helped give the civil rights
movement moral credibility as
well as troops. It was then that
the decision was made to hold
the August March on Wash-
ington.
As Jews were committed to
him and his moral cause, so
was King a trusted supporter
of every major Jewish cause.
He vigorously opposed anti-
Semitism, advocated the
rights of Soviet Jewry and
supported Israel as "one of the
great outposts of democracy in
the world."
Blacks and Jews today
would do well to study
together King's vision and
words of healing and trusted
collaboration.

breakthrough in Soviet-Israeli
relations since Moscow sev-
ered ties with Jerusalem in
1967.
News of the agreement was
announced by Israeli Foreign
Minister Moshe Arens and his
Soviet counterpart, Eduard
Shevardnadze, after the two
met recently.
The announcement was the
climax of a weekend of high-
level diplomatic contacts for
Arens, who recently attended
an international conference
here on the proliferation of
chemical weapons.
Arens met with U.S. Secre-
tary of State George Shultz,
Egyptian Foreign Minister
Esmat Abdel Meguid, Foreign
Minister Roland Dumas of
France, Canadian External
Affairs Minister Joe Clark and
Hans van den Broek, the
Dutch foreign minister.

Refugee Status
EDITOR:
I, too, feel that support of
the "refuseniks" is not serving
Israel's cause. Are the "refu-
seniks'' really refugees, or are
they seeking an economic
advantagf'.'
If so, they are not refugees!
The harsher life in Israel is
not as appealing as the milk
and honey of the United
States. But, why do they want
to emigrate, except to aid and
populate Israel as their bir-
thright.
What good are all the
appeals, hospitals, educational
institutions, even trees, if by
the year 2000, Israel will have
more Arabs than Jews?
If Israel is to survive, all the
aid from the United States will
be of no use, unless there is a
population increase.
If the "refuseniks" want
religious freedom, what better
place to find it than Israel.
They are needed there not
here. Let them settle and
make Israel strong and be hon-
est about their desire to emi-
grate.
Let there be no more U.S.
encouragement!

Bonds Sets Sales Record
NEW YORK (JTA) The State of Israel Bonds Organiza-
tion raised over $631 million in cash for Israel's economic
development in 1988, the best year in the campaign's
38-year history, according to David Hermelin, interna-
tional chairman, and Julian Venezky, chairman of the
board of the organization.
Bonds sales in 1988 exceeded by $27 million those of
1987. It was also the fourth consecutive record-breaking
year for the Bonds Organization.
The 1988 sales brought to $3.24 billion the amount of
Israeli securities sold during the tenure of Yehudah
Halevy, who completed his term as president and chief
executive officer of Israel Bonds on Dec. 31.
The 1988 figures brought the total of Israel bonds sold in
the United States and other countries to $9.3 billion since
the inception of the campaign in 1951.
Amal To Halt Attacks On Galilee
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVTV (JTA) Amal, the mainstream Shiite militia
in southern Lebanon, is pulling back from possible new
confrontations with Israel.
It ordered its men to stop firing Katyusha rockets into
Galilee and to prevent radical groups in the region from
doing so.
The order from Amal headquarters follows an Israeli
helicopter gunship raid Dee. 29 on a local Amal base in
Sultiniya village, near Tyre. Eight Amal militiamen were
reported wounded.
High-ranking military sources hinted strongly that the
attack was in retaliation for Amal assistance to Palestinian
terrorist gangs trying to infiltrate Israel.
But the senior Amal commander in Tyre said his men will
continue to attack Israel Defense Force and South
Lebanon Army positions in the southern Lebanon security
zone.

Charges Fly on Immigrant Neglect
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) A Jewish Agency official accused the
government of failing to provide the basic needs of new
immigrants, and said that both the establishment and Israeli
society only pay lip service to the idea of immigration.
Uri Gordon, who heads the agency's immigration and absorp-
tion department, charged at a news conference that the
government has so far failed to implement the agreement it
signed with the agency last year to take over the absorption
machinery.
Gordon urged that responsibility for absorption be returned to
his department.
Gordon cited the long wait for housing and employment the
13,000 immigrants who arrived in Israel last year had to endure.

Student Network Denounces
U.S.-PLO Rapprochement
By HA VIVA KRASNER
NEW YORK (JTA) The
North American Jewish Stu-
dents' NETWORK has taken a
stance sharply at odds with
most mainstream American
Jewish organizations.
At its 20th anniversary con-
vention here last week, the
student body adopted a resolu-
tion deploring the Reagan
administration's decision to
open a dialogue with the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization.
Most Jewish organizations,
though wary of the PLO's
peace initiative, were non-
judgmental of Washington's
new stance.
The students voted to
actively campaign against it.
The convention, held Dec.
22-27 at the Skyline Hotel in
Manhattan, came at a time of
severe financial crisis for the
Jewish student union, which is
the North American affiliate
of the World Union of Jewish
Students.
During the five days of the
convention, the approximately
300 Jewish student leaders
attending from the United
States and Canada were
addressed by prominent Jew-
ish community leaders and
activists.
The students elected a new
executive to represent them
for the next two years and
passed a number of resolu-
tions.
Two of the more important
resolutions adopted concerned
the U.S.-PLO dialogue and the
case of Jonathan and Anne
Pollard.
The statement on the Pol-
lard calls on the Jewish stu-
dents of America to organize a
letter-writing campaign to
demand the release of Anne
Pollard and the reduction of
Jonathan Pollard's sentence
on grounds they were unfairly
treated.

Teacher On Trial For Claiming 'Jewish Conspiracy'
By BEN KAYFETZ
TORONTO (JTA) A
Human Rights Commission
one-man board of inquiry is
investigating whether a local
school teacher, Malcolm Ross,
should be fired for publishing
four books claiming a conspir-
acy of Jews is working to
undermine Christianity and
gain control of the world.
In his books, Ross condemns
abortion, bilingual ism and rock
music, and asserts that the
Jewish conspiracy invented
the story of the Holocaust to
impose a feeling of guilt on the
West and to create sympathy
for the Jews.
The case was brought to the
Human Rights Commission by
Minister of Labor David Attis,
a Jewish father of three in
Moncton, New Brunswick,
where Ross teaches.
Attis, a member of the
national executive committee
of the Canadian Jewish Con-
gress, argued that the school
board failed to provide teach-
ing free of discrimination.
Ross contested to the court
that he has "never taught in a
school attended by Mr. Attis'
children and has never
advanced my personal religi-
ous conviction in the class-
room."
He added that all his writing
has been at his own expense
and reflects his sincere relig-
ious convictions and "faith in
Jesus Christ."
In addition, Ross presented
an affidavit stating he would
be unable to receive a fair
hearing in New Brunswick
because the premier, justice
minister and head of the
Human Rights Commission
have all publicly condemned
him.
But Justice Richard Miller,
presiding over the case, held
that any bias Ross may suffer
is irrelevant to the inquiry's
jurisdiction.
While the lawyer for the
school board claims Attis can-
not act as complainant because
he's not the direct object of
discrimination, the Education
Ministry and Human Rights
Commission counter that he is
eligible since he's a member of
a minority and since the
inquiry was ordered by the
Labor Ministry.
The case is still awaiting
Miller's decision.

Random Thoughts
By MURIEL LEVITT
I know it's a little late to
make New Year's resolutions,
but the old brain isn't as quick
as it used to be. It takes me a
lot longer to do things these
days, so please be patient with
me. After pondering long and
thinking hard, I have come up
with these earth shattering
thoughts which I will now
share with you.
In 1989 I refuse to be intimi-
dated by nasty salespeople in
stores. Whenever clerks have
been discourteous or abrupt in
the past, I made allowances
and forgave them. No more.
From now I will fight fire with
fire. Any person with a "brun-
digen pisk" will get it right
back ... in spades. I am polite
and I expect politeness in
return.
Every time I dine out some-
one always asks, "How was
everything?" Often the food is
"oon tahm" or even oi-vey
awful. Sometimes the service
is even worse. I never wanted
to make waves so I took the
easy way out, knowing we
would never go back. Wrong!
Tell it like it is. If it's rotten,
say so. You do the establish-
ment a disservice by lying.
Maybe if you speak your piece
they'll even clean up their act.
Maybe.
I vow never to get upset
again when marketing, even
though my visits to Publix are
like entering a combat zone. I
get pushed, shoved, yelled at,
and literally stepped on. More
and more I realize that some
people grow more aggressive
as they grow older. A gesture
of understanding, a little
attention, and a verbal "glet"
would surely be welcomed. I
hope I grow to be very old and
someone tolerates my short-
comings. It should only hap-
pen.
From now I will try to avoid
abrasive and troublesome
yachnas. Neighborhood gossip
holds little fascination or inter-
est. We all have positive and
negative attributes and no one
of us is perfect. Carping and
criticizing creates bad vibes
that we can all do without.
Let's dwell on the good deeds
and niceness of those we
know. They'll be happier and
so will we.
On a family level, I will do
my best not to give advice and
opinions. Unsolicited sugges-
tions are a no-no as well as a
big goornisht. Even when the
kids ask your opinion, they
really want you to tell them
what they already made up
their minds to do. This sounds
complicated, but it really isn't.
Be nice, be kind, and let them
do their own thing. Where
grandchildren are concerned, I
have learned it's best to keep
your mouth shut and your
pocketbook open. Do this, and
you'll be the best grandparent
in the whole wide world.
Now, if you want 1989 to be
great, and if you really want to
feel like a knocker, give some
tzedakah. Even a small dona-
tion to a worthwhile cause will
make you feel good all over. I
can tell you first hand that this
has top priority on my list of
resolutions. So many organiza-
tions need your support .
AIRCRAFT ROUTINE. A U.S. Navy Fl4 Tomcat undergoes routine maintenance aboard
the American aircraft carrier, the USS Kennedy. The two FU jet fighters, which shot down
two Libyan jets, were part of the carrier group which anchored later in Haifa harbor
(APIWide World Photo)
B'nai B'rith, Hadassah, and
Morse Geriatric are but a few.
Jewish Federation should head
the roster because I dare not
imagine what South Florida
would be like without it. In
point of fact, you wouldn't be
reading this paper, and with-
out the Jewish Floridian, you
wouldn't be reading my Ran-
dom Thoughts. And without
Random Thoughts, you might
miss a chuckle or two. Well, I
hope you're chuckling or
maybe smiling.
Anyway, the above are just a
few of my ideas for 1989.

Sacred Jewish Music Resounds In The Soviet Union
"The love of cantonal music
among our fellow-Jews in the
Soviet Union endures! The art
of the cantor lives!"
These were the enthusiastic
words of Haim Wiener, a
Miami philanthropist and
patron of Jewish liturgical
music, upon his return last
week from an unprecedented
mission to Moscow with four of
the world's foremost cantors.
The visit was the latest in a
determined international
effort by Mr. Wiener and his
wife Gila, a Holocaust survi-
vor, to rejuvenate and restore
the art of the cantor vir-
tually obliterated by the Nazis
to its pre-war glory, espe-
cially in Eastern Europe.
As a result of the Wieners'
efforts, a number of cantorial
concerts have been given in
major cities in Hungary and
Rumania during the past year.
But the most dramatic took
place this December when the
sound of Jewish liturgical
music by four master cantors
from the United States and
Canada reverberated through
a concert hall in Moscow and in
the city's largest synagogue.
The cantorial mission was
sponsored by the American
Society for the Advancement
of Cantorial Arts, founded and
supported by the Miami cou-
ple. Some 2,000 worshippers
jammed the Choral Synagogue
Moscow's main synagogue
for a Sabbath service at
which the cantors sang the
liturgy and for a concert of
cantorial music a few days
later. There was another gala
concert in the Gnesin Hall of
the Moscow Conservatory of
Music. All concerts were sold
out.
The cantors, who agreed
that they had never had such
receptive audiences, were:
Cantor David Bagley, Beth
Shalom Synagogue, Toronto,
Ontario; Cantor Ben Zion
Miller, Congregation Beth El,
Brooklyn; Cantor Yaacov Mot-
zen, Congregation Adath

The beneficiary of the con-
certs was the Soviet Children's
Fund in the name of V.I.
Lenin. In turning over a check
to Albert Likhanov, the chair-
man of the Children's Fund,
Mr. Wiener announced: "We
are happy and proud that the
proceeds of these musical
events will go to benefit Soviet
children. Whether American
or Russian or any other, chil-
dren are the future of the
world," he said. "They are our
finest investment. We hope
that our visit will encourage
greater cooperation and better
understanding between the
United States and the Soviet
Union."
At a final meeting in Mos-
cow before returning home,
Mr. Wiener discussed plans for
continuing the concert series
in future years. The Miami
philanthropist explained to his
Soviet hosts that for more
than a century the Jewish com-
munities of Eastern Europe
provided cantors for the
United States and Canada.
But then the Nazis came and
killed six million Jews, among
them many rabbis and cantors.
"When the survivors
returned, the centers of Jew-
ish learning lay in ruins. Yet,
by dint of great moral courage
and devotion, which we in the
United States have sought to
support and sustain, new can-
tors are being trained, new
appreciation of cantorial arts
has been developed and

response of Soviet Jews to the
cantorial performances.
Worshippers in the syna-
gogue wept openly, threw
their arms around the cantors
and kissed them to express
their thanks. Many youngsters
hearing Jewish liturgy for the
first time broke into spontane-
ous applause and danced in the
aisles. Following each per-
formance, long lines of people
formed to shake the cantors'
hands and seek their auto-
graphs.
Summing up the visit, Mr.
Wiener said: "Sending cantors
abroad, particularly to the
Soviet Union, links Jews from
the East and West. It streng-
thens our faith. It deepens our
culture."
Of all Jewish arts, cantorial
music is closest to the nature
of the Jewish soul. It warms
the old and tired and inspires
young people to keep and
transmit the tradition of our
Jewish heritage.
Peres Economic Plan
Wins Few Friends
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
Finance Minister Shimon
Peres' economic austerity
program won few friends in
either the public or private
sectors after its approval by
the Cabinet recently. It now
faces an uphill fight in the
Knesset.
Knesset Laborites accused
the plan of favoring the rich
over the poor. Industrialists
complained it fails to reverse
economic stagnation.
Most observers agreed that
the public will be paying more
for considerably less of the
services and entitlements
Israelis have become used to.
The chief criticism is that the
government again took the
easy way out. It opted for new
taxes and fees on the public,
instead of drastic spending
cuts to make up a 1.14 billion
shekel ($700 million) revenue
shortfall.
Nor, said critics, does the
program offer any solutions to
the two most urgent problems
facing the economy: growing
unemployment and the
increasing number of business
failures.
The Cabinet struggled for 12
hours in extraordinary session
before finally adopting the pro-
gram, with only two dissenting
votes.
They came from opposite
ends of the political spectrum.
Education Minister Yitzhak
Navon, the Labor Party's No.
3 man, and Likud hard-liner
Ariel Sharon, the minister of
industry and trade, opposed
the program for different rea-
sons.
Sharon, the more vocal
critic, said it contained no
measures to rescue industries
in crisis. Not enough is being
done to stimulate economic
growth by creating investment
incentives, Sharon charged in
a series of media interviews
over the weekend.
School Taxeo, Subsidy CU
Navon made it clear before
the Cabinet session that
he would not countenance a
program that ended free high
school education, whicn
Israelis have always taken tor
granted.
High school pupils now g
have to pay a registration m
ranging fr8m 100 to 800 she-
kels (up to $500), depending on
their family income.
In addition, free education
for 3- and 4-year-old ch ldren
in several development towns
will be abolished.

Teaching Black People to Hope. .
By JOSEPH L. RAUH JR.
IT was shortly after
8 o'clock the morning of Aug.
28, 1963, the day of the his-
toric March on Washington. I
remember piling into a small
bus in front of the Statler
Hotel with a dozen or so lead-
ers of the march.
We were headed for Capitol
Hill to meet with the top con-
gressional officials and urge
the strengthening and passage
of the pending legislation
which was to become the Civil
Rights Act of 1964.
My seat mate in the bus was
Martin Luther King Jr. Sleep-
ily, I asked him how he was
getting on with his speech for
the afternoon rally.
"Not very well," he replied.
"I haven't had much time to
work on it." Yet a few hours
later, King electrified his vast
audience and the nation with
the dream that had long been
in his head and his heart, and
which he had even tried out
earlier in the year, before audi-
ences in Birmingham and
Detroit.
One can question whether
even King himself realized the
impact that his short burst of
eloquent idealism and faith
had upon him and upon the
nation.
It turned the massive and
almost spiritual March on
Washington for civil rights
into "Dr. King's March" -
though A. Philip Randolph, the
daddy of marches, acted as
chairman of the event; Bayard
Rustin organized, directed and
orchestrated it; and NAACP's
Roy Wilkins and United Auto
Worker's Walter Reuther led
the effort to make the turnout
the greatest in history.
It catapulted King into the
leadership of the civil rights
movement, though of the
many greats in that move-
ment, he'd been involved by
far the shortest time. Most
important of all, it taught
black people to hope and white
people to care.
WHY the national impact of
the King speech? In part at
least because the nation was
ready to take just such a
declaration of idealism and
faith to heart.
King gave expression to the
idealism of the civil rights
movement and the sharp con-
. And White People to Care
pleaded his rights under the
U.S. Constitution.
KING had little understand-
ing of the legislative process
he was seeking to affect. I will
never forget his whispering to
me in bewildered amazement,
after I had outlined the legisla-
tive roadblocks to the pending
civil rights bill just six weeks
before the March, "Joe, that's
mighty complicated, isn't it?"
One can only speculate how
he would have coped with the
frustrations of the '70s and
'80s. Would his idealism and
faith, which did so much to
turn our legal system upside
down from one condoning
and supporting discrimination
and segregation to one barring
believe the continued presence
of King might well have made
a difference, and that is affir-
and economic benefits for the
long-suffering minorities?
Certainly King's failures in
his Chicago foray in the later
1960s create doubts on that
subject. Economic change has
proved far less amenable to
marches and idealism and faith
than legal change had been.
But there is one area where I
believe the continued presence
of King might well have made
Martin Luther King's Declaration of Faith
trast of his philosophy with the
ugly cruelty of his opponents.
The sufferings of black and
white martyrs King's own
Birmingham marches in the
face of police dogs and water
canons, the cowardly murder
of NAACP's Medgar Evers in
Mississippi, the Philadelphia,
Miss., massacre, other daily
atrocities combined with a
popular President Kennedy's
declaration that equal rights
was a "rural" issue to make
King's speech that perfect
time for exhortation for
action.
King's declaration of faith
that even in the face of all that
had been done to his people
racism could be obliterated
was a clarion call to people of
all races and religions to forge
a national consensus of consci-
ence.
Martin Luther King was no
saint; his private life attests to
that. King was no Gandhi; the
Indian leader made no defense
when prosecuted for acts of
civil disobedience but simply
accepted the punishments of
British law, whereas King

" just don't have the time
. .. How can I attend day-
time meetings when I work
full-time ... I've been chairing
this committee for three years,
it's time to find someone else
... I'm burned out!"
These statements are heard
echoing through the halls of
non-profit institutions across
the country, causing great con-
cern for organizations that
rely on large numbers of volun-
teers to get the job done. Here
in South Florida these prob-
lems are magnified by the
addition of another cry:' I was
involved up north and I've
already done my share of vol-
unteer work; now I want to
enjoy my retirement!"
Unquestionably the back-
bone of the Jewish community
in Palm Beach County and the
Jewish Federation in particu-
lar is the volunteer workforce.
Finding good workers, train-
ing them and sustaining their
commitment at a consistently
high level is the primary focus
of an active new department in
Federation: Human Resources
Development (HRD).
Human Resources Development:
Providing For The Future
Over the last few years,
HRD has grown from a hard
working committee to a full-
scale department. As one of
the central functions of Feder-
ation, alongisde raising and
allocating funds, HRD's pri-
mary purpose is to create a
systematic approach to the
identification, recruitment,
training, placement and reten-
tion of volunteers.
The major goal of HRD is to
broaden the leadership base
within the Jewish community,
explained Leah Siskin, HRD
Chair. By providing a variety
of programs and educational
experiences, HRD plans to cul-
tivate, educate, place and
retain knowledgeable people in
leadership positions both in the
Jewish Federation, its family
of agencies and ultimately in
every Jewish institution in the
community.
How to achieve these goals
is the major challenge fac-
ing the Human Resource
Development Department,
Mrs. Siskin said. Under the
direction of Ronni Epstein,
Assistant Executive Director
and Director of Human
Resource Development, and

The OSI is seeking your
assistance in bringing Nazi
war criminals to justice. Inves-
tigations are currently under-
way regarding an individual
living in the United States
suspected of committing hei-
nous crimes against Jews and
partisans in Tryskiai, Lithua-
nian during World War II.
The alleged crimes are:
Participation in the murder
of some 80 Jewish males at the
end of July, 1941, in Tryskiai;
The subsequent deportation
of the Jewish women and child-
ren of Tryskiai to Zagare (on
the Latvian border) where
they were also murdered;
The murder of six young
Jewish women in.September
1942 in Tryskiai;
The murder of the wife and
brother-in-law of an anti-Nazi
partisan in the summer of
1944.

four subcommittees: Outreach,
Volunteer Placement, Track-
ing and Retention, Programs
and Board Development, the
HRD Department will devise
and implement programs to
cover a wide range of topics
dealing with Jewish know-
ledge, commitment and leader-
ship skills development.
Unquestionably the
backbone of the
Jewish community in
Palm Beach County
and the Jewish
Federation in
particular is the
volunteer workforce.
Community Outreach is a
first priority for HRD.
Througn the use of a variety of
sources to identify Jewish peo-
ple living in the community,
the Outreach Subcommittee
will focus on targeting individ-
uals and providing appropriate
programs to bring them into
the Federation framework.
Newcomer programs, like the
Women's Division annual cof-
fees, B&P programs, as in the
Men's, and Women's Divi-
sions, mass programming,
such as Soviet Jewry Rallies
and Mid-East Conferences,
and educational, cultural and
social programs, exemplified
in the Young Adult Division,
will be expanded and embel-
lished to attract more new
people in the community.
Strengthening
Jewish unity and
creating a deeper
appreciation of
Jewish culture are
the primary goals of
HRD's Programs
Subcommittee._____
HRD's primary responsibili-
ties will be to place volunteers
in appropriate positions and
help them develop personal
career paths and choose suita-
ble training programs. The
Volunteer Placement, Track-
ing and Retention Sub-
Committee will oversee the
interviewing and placement of
every volunteer and develop a
centralized system of using
and retaining them once they
have completed their training
programs. To continually
update this process, and to
avoid volunteer "burn-out," a
computer tracking system will
also be instituted to maintain
current information on each
individual and to rotate them
properly.
Strengthening Jewish unity
and creating a deeper
appreciation of Jewish culture
are the primary goals of
HRD's Programs Subcommit-

lish a variety of educational
and training programs, such as
those from the National Jew-
ish Center for Learning and
Leadership (CLAL), for all
aspects of the community,

tee members and staff. It will
also coordinate and enhance
programs which the Jewish

fast track programs for leader-
ship from other communities
who need to be educated on
the needs of this local com-
munity.
HRD will not focus on lay
leadership alone. Included in
the community's resources is
the staff of the Jewish Federa-
tion, which must continue to
be well informed and well inte-
grated to maximize its effi-
ciency within the community.
Staff programs will include a
Jewish education series, also
through CLAL, courses
offered through local colleges
and universities, on-going

Israeli Diamond Industry
Mourns Hirohito's Death
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) What
has the death of Emperor Hir-
ohito of Japan to do with
Israel's diamond industry?
According to Moshe Schnit-
zer, president of the diamond
exchange in Ramat Gan, it will
adversely affect exports to
Japan, which is one of Israel's
largest customers for cut and
polished diamonds.
Japan accounts for some
$600 million in sales a year.
But the two-year mourning
period for the emperor, a
Japanese tradition, will put a
damper on celebrations such
as weddings "and even geisha
parties," which are occasions
for much of the diamond pur-
chases by individuals in Japan,
Schnitzer said.
Hirohito died recently at the
age of 87, after a 62-year
reign, the longest of any mod-
ern monarch.
Schnitzer expects diamond
orders from Japan will be
down by half, for the next
several months at least.
Finished diamonds are one
of Israel's largest exports,
yielding a net income of $1
billion a year.

Yemenite Jews:
Friday, January 20, 1989/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 11
Coalition for Salvation Formed
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) A
group of Yemenite Jews and
non-Yemenite supporters, who
claim that Jews who remain in
North Yemen have been sub-
ject to forced conversion to
Islam, have formed an advo-
cacy group to try and save the
remaining Jewish community
there.
The National Coalition for
the Rescue of Yemenite Jewry
was officially established here,
in a meeting at Stern College
for Women of Yeahiva Univer-
sity.
David Shuker, chairman of
Israel's Public Committee for
Yemenite Jewry, charged that
Jewish women have been kid-
napped, forced to convert to
Islam and then made to
remarry Muslim men.
Shuker, who read from let-
ters allegedly smuggled out
from Yemen in recent years,
also reported that at least two
Jews in Yemen were killed.
Shuker said the alleged mur-
ders and other forms of danger
to Jews in Yemen date from
the 1982 arrival there of mem-
bers of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization, who were
forced to leave Lebanon after
Israel invaded that country.
The source of the claims are
letters and tapes brought out
of Yemen by unnamed tour-
ists.
In addition to the reading of
the letters, written in Rashi
script, photographs were
shown of Yemenite Jews, two
of whose voices were identified
as those recorded on tape.
A woman's voice was heard
chanting and lamenting the
plight of the Yemenite Jews
and their desire to be reunited
with their brethren in Israel.
The Yemenite coalition
formed is asking for religious
and human rights for Yeme-
nite Jews and the preservation
of sacred Jewish places.
Although the numbers of
Jews remaining in Yemen
have been variously estimated
at between 2,000 and 6,000,
with most having become
"Marranos," or closet Jews,
there was general agreement
that the exact number of Jews
in Yemen could not be deter-
mined.
Yemen is the name generally
used for what is officially cal-
led North Yemen. It was home
to an ancient Jewish commun-
ity, which was widely believed
to have emigrated en masse to
Israel when it was established
in 1948, leaving virtually no
Jews behind.

Ayish, near Ashdod, said it

Offensive Definition
Modified not Deleted
LONDON (JTA) The next
edition of the Concise Oxford
Dictionary will continue to
carry an offensive definition of
"Jew," but it will add an expla-
nation in precise terms why it
is considered offensive.
S.K. Tulloch, the diction-
ary's senior assistant editor,
gave that assurance in a letter
responding to representatives
from the Council of Christians
and Jews.
The dictionary contains two
definitions of "Jew." One is
"person of Hebrew descent;
person whose religion is
Judaism ..."
The second definition is a

he made, the personal dangers

into accepting the small sacrif-
ices that affirmative action
entails.
Jewish opposition to affirma-
tive action, especially to the
element of preferences for
qualified blacks for jobs and
entry into educational institu-
tions, was a major factor in the
unraveling of the black-Jewish
alliance that flourished in the
'50s and '60s.
As Martin Luther King Day
approaches, we best honor his

Tulloch pointed out that the
current edition describes the
definition as "derogatory,"
and marks it "R" for "racially
offensive."
The next edition, she said,
would explain that the "deeply
offensive" definition "arose
from historical associations of
Jews as moneylenders in
medieval England."
But according to Tulloch,
there are no grounds to
remove the offending defini-
memory by rethinking our
position on affirmative action
and rebuilding that alliance to
full strength.
Blacks and Jews united as

teachings envision, and with it

Play Is Rewarding Work At Morse Geriatric Center
By CAROLE FARRINGTON
"Our residents shall not live
by Bingo alone," is the creed
of the Joseph L. Morse Geria-
tric Center's Activity Depart-
ment.
In fact, activities for each
resident are as carefully "pre-
scribed" and monitored on an
individual basis as are each
resident's diet, medications or
other treatments.
Donna Ricketts, Activity
Coordinator, is one among sev-
eral Care Plan Team members
who interviews new residents
and family members on the
resident's arrival at the Morse.
"Besides trying to learn
what activities appeal to them,
I need to assess their physical,
mental and emotional capacit-
ies to participate," said Rick-
etts.
She points out that some
residents will readily enter
into activities, even working
around disabilities to do so.
Others will decline all invita-
tions to participate.
"In accordance with resi-
dent's rights, we can only ask
them to join in a game, discus-
sion group, exercise class or
outing. If the resident chooses
to not participate, then we
may set our activity goal for
that resident to simply take
walks in the units and garden
or engage in one-on-one activi-
ties such as playing cards on a
regular basis, Ricketts
explains.
Motivating Non-Participants
She adds, "In the meantime,
we try to work out ways to
motivate the resident to
become a participant. We
revisit our interview questions
about their past special inter-
ests, such as sewing, and try to
arrange to have the resident
carry out this activity on the
unit.
"We may ask for a volunteer
who will become a 'friendly'
visitor and spend time with the
resident on the unit with the
goal of eventually accompany-
ing the resident to ofi-unit
activities. Sometimes another
resident will act in this capac-
ity. We have a dozen or more
motivational approaches,"
Ricketts concluded.
Ricketts has an Occupational
Therapist and a Recreational
Therapist as her assistants.
They work with all 120 Morse
residents and face daily chal-
lenges to devise activities
which are attractive and bene-
ficial for residents in all three
levels of care at the Morse.
These levels range from nurs-
ing supervision of daily living
activities and nursing assisted
care to total nursing care.
"Even activities labeled as
'entertainment' are valuable
for socialization and sensory
stimulation. Therefore, resi-
dents from all three levels of
care can benefit from an event
with music, dancing, singing
and party treats. They are
moved into an environment
different from their units,"
Ricketts explains.
For the latter reason, rides
around the Palm Beaches in
the Center's wheelchair-lift
equipped bus are scheduled for
total care residents who may
be victims of stroke or Alz-
heimer's Disease.
Activities For
Alzheimer's Victim
"We feel we have considera-
ble strength in identifying
activities and programs for our
residents with Alzheimer's,"
said Ricketts.
She continued, "It's quite
Kossible, for instance, an Alz-
eimer's resident may have in
the past been able to knit or do
macrame. By working with
that resident, those skills may
return."
As an example, Ricketts tells
of one resident who amazes
everyone with how beautifully
she can play a piano. "We saw
to it that a portable keyboard
was placed on her unit so she
can play when she wishes,"
said Ricketts.
All total care residents have
a "Wellness" activity every-
Soviet Emigration Figures Revised
NEW YORK (JTA) The
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry has revised its emigra-
tion statistics for 1988.
According to the latest figures
obtained from the Israeli gov-
ernment, 18,965 Jews emi-
grated from the Soviet Union
on Israeli visas last year, 11.4
percent of whom settled in
Israel.
In Washington, the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews
reported that 18,919 Jews left
the USSR in 1988 on Israeli
visas. It said up to 400 others
immigrated directly to the
United States on American
visas.
Earlier, the National Confer-
ence reported that 19,286
Jews left the Soviet Union in
1988, a 133 percent increase
over the total for the year
before. Its revised total indi-
cates that Soviet Jewish emi-
gration last year was still well
more than double the 1987
level.
Ascertaining the number of
Jews who left the Soviet Union
last year was complicated by
the emigration of a number of
non-Jewish Soviet citizens
with Israeli visas. The visas
were provided by the Israelis
at the Kremlin's request.
Soviet Jewry groups in the
United States learned as early
as May that emigration statis-
tics provided by the Israelis
may have included some non-
Jews. After that point, both
the National Conference and
the Union of Councils sought
breakdowns of the numbers of
Jewish and non-Jewish
emigres.
The Union of Councils then
revised its emigration statis-
tics for the first four months of
1988. After the Union of Coun-

dents hear music and are
encouraged to exercise and
improve coordination by play-
ing games of toss with colorful
foam rubber balls. (Wellness is
conducted on the unit on days
which are rainy or too hot.)
Activities Schedule Changes
Meanwhile, other residents
gather in the Activity Room
for a constantly changing
schedule of discussion groups,
crafts, poetry readings, crea-
tive writing, movies and
games.
"It's true, our residents play
Bingo three nights a week,"
Ricketts admits, "but they also
enjoy 'Wheel of Fortune,'
Tabletop Horse Racing, all
kinds of word games and 'Win
Lose or Draw.' "
(Ricketts recalls that last
year's Older Americans Month

Israel Diamond Industry Grossed
A Record $2.3 Billion In '88
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Dia-
monds are not only a girl's
best friend, they're also a good
industry for exports and jobs.
Israel's diamond exports
grossed a record $2.3 billion in
1988, a 23 percent increase
over the previous year.
Net earnings amounted to
$600 million, after deducting
the high cost of importing
rough stones and the 22 per-
cent to 25 percent value-added
tax.
Nevertheless, it's good busi-
ness. More than 13,000 work-
ers are now employed in dia-
mond processing, while an-
other 5,000 specialists are
involved in trade and service
functions.
But more qualified workers
cils announced its total for the
year, the National Conference
checked with its sources and
then revised its figures for the
year.
Following are the updated
monthly breakdowns of Soviet
Jewish emigration as reported
by the two organizations for
1988:
are needed. Accordingly,
Israel has expanded its voca-
tional training facilities for the
industry by instituting a dia-
mond curriculum at a fifth
high school.
The Amal high school in Hod
Hasharon near Tel Aviv has
modern workshops where
youngsters can learn the tech-
nologies of diamond polishing
and marketing.
The equipment and rough
stones are provided by the
Israel Diamond Institute,
which also assures employ-
ment to graduates of the
course.
Israeli-finished diamonds,
mainly for industrial uses, are
sent all over the world.
More than 200 pupils are
currently enrolled in institute-
sponsored courses.
In addition to the school in
Hod Hasharon, diamond
courses are given at the Amal
school in Petach Tikva, the
WIZO high school in Rehovot,
the ORT high school in Ramat
Gan and the Jewish Agency
Training Center in Netanya.
The diamond business is
good for foreign trade as well.
Nearly 4,000 diamond buyers
from 19 countries visited the
diamond bourse in Ramat Gan
last year, the exchange man-
agement reported.
And next March, an interna-
tional exhibition of postage
stamps on the theme of dia-
monds and other gemstones
will open at the Harry Oppen-
heimer Museum in the Ramat
Gan Diamond Exchange.

Peres Economic Plan
Continued from Page 8
demic scale, university tuition
will be raised to $1,726 a year,
high by Israeli standards.
Funding for yeshiva students
will be reduced by 10 million
shekels.
Other painful changes are
the reduction of maternity
grants from 300 to 150 she-
kels. The one-time grant of
2,700 shekels to soldiers upon
completion of military service
will be scrapped.
Another break with prece-
dent is the new 4 shekel ($2.50)
doctors' fee every patient
must pay out of pocket for a
visit to government clinics,
even if covered by health
insurance.
The measure has raised a
loud outcry, but is here to stay
unless the Health Ministry
finds a way to lop 70 million
shekels off its budget.
Subsidies have been elimi-
nated entirely from public
transportation and reduced
substantially for basic food-
stuffs. This means soaring
Erices at the market and for
>cal travel.
The unemployment situation
will be exacerbated by a 3
percent reduction in the size of
the public sector work force in
one year, impacting 8,000 to
10,000 jobs.
About 1,800 civil service
jobs will be affected by a
10 percent cut over two years.
Also planned is a 1 to 3
percent tax on large cars,
measured by engine capacity.
That presumably will affect
the well-to-do.
Peres, who heads the Labor
Party, also faces a fight with
Histadrut, his major constitu-
ency. The trade union federa-
tion served notice that it will
take action unless new wage
agreements are signed imme-
diately.
But Defense Minister Yitz-
hak Rabin has accepted a 120
million shekel cut in the
defense budget.
Meanwhile, Peres was
embarrassed by the disclosure
in the daily newspaper Haar-
etz that he had allocated 1.2
million shekels ($750,000) to
run his ministerial bureau, not
including regular salaries and
expenses.
His office budget reported
by Haaretz includes build-in
overtime for key aides, two
new limousines for the minis-
ter, and cars and drivers for
the Deputy Finance Minister
Yossi Beilin and Peres' foreign
policy adviser, Nimrod Novuc.
Another 100,000 shekels
($62,000) a year are
earmarked for a private press-
clipping bureau.
Call Barbara at JFCS 684-
1991.

variety of classes and pro-

June 1987.
Both have been strictly lim-
ited in their activities until
now.
Arye Levin, head of the
Israeli mission in Moscow, had
been trying for months with-
out success to initiate talks
with Soviet officials above the
most junior level.
But the climate seems to
have changed. Levin, on home
leave this week, disclosed in
Jerusalem that he recently dis-
cussed political issues with
Soviet Foreign Ministry offi-
cials.
He told a Hebrew Univer-
sity-sponsored conference on
Soviet and Eastern bloc affairs
last week that Israel's aid to
the earthquake victims in
Soviet Armenia last month
had opened the door for him.
In Paris, Shevardnadze
expressed his country's grati-
tude to Arens for Israel's help
in the aftermath of the Arme-
nian disaster.
Meetings With Shultz
He also praised Israel's
swift, efficient handling of a
hijacked Soviet plane that
landed at Ben-Gurion Airport
on Dec. 2. That incident
occurred five days before the
Armenian quake.
Shevardnadze said his coun-
try wants to see the Middle
East peace process move for-
ward. He said that is in the
interests of Israel, the Pales-
tinians, the Arab states and
world peace.
Arens, at a small news con-
ference of his own, confirmed
that the Israeli consular dele-
gation in Moscow will now be
able to conduct diplomatic
activities.
He said he will remain in
regular contact with his Soviet
counterpart to enable the two
countries to "better under-
stand each other."

Dutch Contacts With PL0 Protested
By HENRIETTA BOAS
AMSTERDAM (JTA) Representatives of the Jewish
community here have expressed concern over the growing
contacts between the Dutch government and the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
A delegation representing five national Jewish organiza-
tions was received by Foreign Minister Hans van den
Broek.
Their visit was prompted by the announcement that
ranking Foreign Ministry officials will pay a three-day
official visit to PLO headquarters in Tunisia at the
invitation of the PLO.
Their official objective is to find out if the PLO has really
changed its attitude toward Israel.

Managers, who are Registered
Nurses responsible for each of
the three units, are held
weekly. Besides Ricketts, the
Center's Dietary Supervisor
and two Social Workers meet
with residents and their fami-
lies to share information and
recommend goals for per-
ceived needs of the resident.
These recommendations and
how well goals are achieved
are also charted.
A lot of work goes into the

TuB'Shevat
Torah For Everyone
By RABBI MORDECHAI SAXON
Director, Beit HaMidrash,
Shul of Boca Pointe
This Shabbat, Jan. 21, marks
an important Jewish holiday
for us, Tu B'Shevat, the "Rosh
HaShannah for Trees."
In the time of the Holy
Temple when we used to calcu-
late the annual tithes,
Tu B'Shevat, which simply
means the 15th day of the
Hebrew month Shevat, mark-
ed the boundary between the
fruit produce of one year and
the next. All the fruit that
ripened before Tu B'Shevat
was considered harvest of the
current year, while all the fruit
that grew after the holiday
was calculated in with the fol-
lowing year's crop. As such,
Tu B'Shevat began the annual
fruit cycle and became known
as the "Rosh Hashanah for
Trees."
Since man is likened to a
tree in the field (Deut 20:19), it
would be appropriate during
this time to take a lesson from
the tree and apply it to our
own spiritual service to our
Creator.
In general, a tree can be
divided into three main compo-
nents: its roots, body (the
trunk, branches and leaves)
and finally its fruit.
A tree's roots represent its
strength, for although hidden
from sight, the tree receives
its primary support and most
of its strength from its roots.
Next, comes the body of the
tree in which its growth is
evident, and from which its
fruits ultimately become
revealed. A tree's produce, or
its fruit, contains the Divine
power to recreate life and thus
represents the highest level in
the perfection of the tree.
The same three components
also make up a person. Our
roots as the children of Abra-
ham, Issac and Jacob are our
faith, belief and trust in G-d, as
we confirm daily in the repeti-
tion of the Sh'ma: 'Hear O'
Israel, the Lord is our G-d, the
Lord is One.
The 'body' of Judaism is the
study of Torah and our per-
formance of 'mitzvahs' and
good deeds. Just as the age of
a tree cannot be calculated
from its external appearance
but only from examining the
inside of its trunk, the true
essence of our lives cannot be
measured in the material pos-
sessions we accumulate but by
the good deeds we perform.
Finally, our lives are high-
lighted by the fruit which
becomes our legacy, our child-
ren. Just as the fruit of the
tree cannot exist for too long
once it has been plucked and
severed from its source, so too
our children and their devotion
to Jewish ideals must remain
firm if we want to ensure the
survival of our people. This can
only be done by providing a
proper Jewish education for
every child.
The metaphor of fruit not
only applies to our own child-
ren, but to every person who
we can inspire and encourage
to follow a Jewish way of life.
They too become our heritage
and our legacy.
Rewards come from the
smiles and laughter of resi-
dents enjoying an event; from
seeing a resident who has
avoided activities finally join
in; from a resident who says,
"That game was really fun
even if we didn't win any chips
like we do in Bingo!"

was a mistake to believe that
all Jews had left Yemen. He
said his Israeli neighbors, most
of them Yemenite Jews who
left that country in 1961 and
1962, have remaining close rel-
atives still living there.
Many Jews left on foot for
the British crown colony of
Aden, which is now the Marx-
ist state of South Yemen. Par-
ticipants at the group's found-
ing meeting said there are no
Jews in South Yemen.
Most Jews in North Yemen
are believed to live in and
around Sanaa, that country's
capital. Others are said to live
in surrounding villages.
L. A. Kids Give To Armenia
By TOM TUGEND
LOS ANGELES (JTA) A
group of 11-year-old syna-
gogue students visited a class
at an Armenian church last
week to offer their friendship
and support and a check for
$3,182 to aid victims of the
earthquake in Soviet Armenia.
Sixth-graders from Valley
Beth Shalom Day School in the
affluent Los Angeles suburb of
Encino had raised the money
in a special classroom drive.
They presented the donation
to sixthgraders at the nearby
Holy Martyrs Ferrahian
Armenian School.
"We were all upset about
what happened in the earth-
quake," student Jason Adel-
man of the synagogue class
explained. "We told the little
kids what happened and they
wanted to give, too."
The Armenian youngsters
expressed their thanks by
singing a song of their home-
land.
Father Muron Aznikian,
dean of the school, noted that
the children's unexpected gift
was symbolic of the difficulties
Jews and Armenians have
shared in their struggles for a
homeland.

Synopsis Of
The Weekly Torah Portion
... "And the children of Israel went into the midst
of the sea upon the dry ground; and the waters were
a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their
left"
(Exod. H.2X).
BESHALAH
BESHALAH Fearful of the hostile tribes the
Israelites might encounter on the direct route to
Canaan through the land of the Philistines, God
sent the newly-freed slaves by way of the desert
near the Red Sea. As they journeyed, they were
guided by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. The
Israelites had left Egypt presumably to worship their God in the
desert. When Pharaoh learned that the children of Israel would
not return to Egypt, he pursued them to the banks of the Red Sea
at the head of an army of chosen troops. But a miracle occurred:
the children of Israel were able to pass between the waves of the
Red Sea that divided before them and stood upright like columns.
The Egyptian hosts, plunging into the Red Sea after them, were
all drowned. At this sight, the children of Israel sang a song of
praise to God. On their journey through the desert, the children of
Israel were sustained by manna from heaven; water issued from a
rock for them at the bidding of God. The Amalekites did battle
with the Israelites, but were defeated by Joshua, the son of Nun,
and his men.

A Case History
The other day Mr. A called me with the kind of problem we would all like to
have. His wife owns stock in XYZ company, which she would like to sell. The XYZ
stock, which Mrs. A purchased for $20,000, is worth $270,000. If no tax planning
is done, a capital gain of $250,000 will be recognized on the sale, resulting in a
tax of $70,000.
Mr. A wondered if there was some form of charitable gift that would allow his
wife to avoid the capital gains tax while retaining the income from the property
for the rest of her life.
The answer to Mr. A's question is yes! These objectives can be accomplished
using a charitable remainder trust. This is how it works.
Mrs. A will transfer the XYZ stock to a charitable remainder trust. The trust can
take either of two forms. A charitable remainder annuity trust would pay Mrs. A a
fixed dollar amount every year for the term of the trust. A charitable remainder
unitrust would pay her a fixed percentage of the trust principal revalued each
year.
Let us assume that Mrs. A creates a charitable remainder annuity trust to pay
her $24,300 (9% of initial trust principal of $270,000) each year for the rest of her
life. The transfer of XYZ stock to the trust will result in a $143,278 income tax
charitable deduction for Mrs. A in the year of the transfer. (The amount of the
deduction depends on the size of the annuity and Mrs. A's age.) As Mr. and Mrs.
A are in the 28% income tax bracket, the charitable deduction results in an
immediate income tax savings of more than $40,000. (This does not take into
account the Alternative Minimum Tax, which may be applicable). The income tax
savings is a bonus as there would be no such benefit If Mrs. A instead left
$270,000 to charity in her will.
The trustees of the trust will sell the XYZ stock, invest the sales proceeds and
pay Mrs. A the $24,300 annuity during her lifetime. Because no capital gains tax
was paid, the full $270,000 sales proceeds is working for Mrs. A (plus the $40,000
income tax savings). If she had retained the stock and paid the $70,000 capital
gains tax, only $200,000 would be available to invest.
On Mrs. A's death, the trust will terminate and the remaining principal will be
distributed to the charities named in the trust agreement, just as if she had
provided for them in her will.
Please note that this is a general discussion of how a charitable trust may be
used. If you are considering creating a charitable trust, you should consult with
your tax advisor who can explain in detail how it may be of advantage to you
while benefiting your favorite charities.
Thanks to Leonard S. Adler of Shapiro & Bregman for providing this material.

minimum tax may apply. Please contact your attorney, tax advisor or the Jewish Federation of Palm
