Passover Message From
The Federation President
By JEANNE LEVY
President
Jewish Federation of Pain Beach County
On Passover we have a special opportunity to capture a
great moment in our history and become part of it. As we read
about the redemption of the Children of Israel, the Haggadah
instructs us to put ourselves in their places; to eat what they ate,
to drink as they drank, to feel what they felt and to rejoice in the
new moment our first taste of freedom after generations of
slavery.
As we join with our families and friends at the Seder table
to celebrate our ancestors' struggle for freedom, we must
remember that elsewhere across the globe pressures mount
against the Jewish people. In the Soviet Union, Ethiopia, South
America, and the Arab lands, Jews look to us to help maintain
their courage. Israel is threatened by increased terrorist activities
and economic hardships as they continue to fight to assure their
survival.
To our generation has come the privilege of seeing our people
reunited with their land, the opportunity to participate in the
upbuilding of the nation and now the responsibility to share the
vision of creating a worldwide community in which all people
are allowed to live with dignity and in peace. As Jewish leaders
in the tradition of Moses, we must continue struggUng to make
our people free.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach County, may 1 wish you all "Hag
Samayach" with the hope that we can demonstrate the strength
of heart, mind and soul to create a unity of purpose for our
people.

Israel's Economic Hardships
Limit New Settlements
The Jewish Agency will
endeavor to bring 27 settle-
ments to self-sufficiency in the
fiscal year beginning April 1,
but because of limited re-
sources would not be able to
initiate more than six new
settlements within Israel's pre-
1967 borders.
The Agency's board of gov-
ernors has increased from $12
million to $15 milion the
allocations for consolidation,
the process of helping settle-
ments become independent ot
the Agency. But the Agency's
Settlement Department budget
is still restrained to $70 mil-
lion, limiting new settlements
plans.
The consolidation funds will
also move 95 other kibbutzim
and moshavim begun since
1979 toward self sufficiency as
well as older settlements in
Agency care.
Of the new settlements
planned for fiscal year 1984-
85, four would be in the
Galilee and two in the Arava,
the narrow, 120-mile desert
strip from the Dead Sea to the
Red Sea along the Jordanian
border.
During consolidation, the
Agency provides additional
goods, such as tractors and
plant equipments, and serv-
ices, such as financial, leader-
ship and management train-
ing. Consolidation frees the
Agency of responsibility on
some settlements, permitting it
to concentrate its limited
settlements funds on others.
Settlements provide jobs,
housing and community life.
They also promote economic
independence, especially in
food production, for a people
with whom few countries
trade, and they establish a
Jewish physical presence in
sparsely populated areas.

Unique Program Planned
Community Holocaust Observance
On Sunday evening April 29, 7:30 p.m., the
community will join together to remember the
six million Jews who perished at the hands of
thc-Nazis. The Community Holocaust Observ-
ance will take place at Temple Israel, 1801 No.
Flagler Drive, and will feature "The Wave, a
short film about a high school social studies
teacher and his class experiment in group
behavior, followed by a panel discussion by
members of the community and recitations by
students of the Jewish Community Day School.
The experiment which is depicted in "The
Wave" simulates the behavior of Nazi Ger-
many and gives the viewer a chance to under-
stand the ever-present danger of totalitarianism.
"We have put together a panel of distinguished
members of our community who will 'cad the
discussion after the movie. This powerful mm
creates the need for a follow-up exploration of

[ Recalling the Exodus and cSmmtment to Education
^' ,Vi'illcnir' our verv .survival wit k,,. tk.
The story of modern Israel, like the story
of the Exodus, is punctuated with perils
and studded with successes. But this is an
ongoing story; neither the dangers nor the
trimphs are a thing of the past alone. For
the people of Israel, and in fact for Jews
everywhere, Passover is a time to celebrate
victories and a warning against com-
placency.
The holiday itself will be launched with
the first Seder this coming Monday
evening, Apr. 16. From time immemorial,
Judaism has regarded its festivals not
purely as a time for regaling, but also for
educational enrichment. This has been the
hallmark of Jewish tradition ever since the
first Jewish holiday. Passover, was in-
stituted.
And so on Passover, as we sit around the
Seder table, we will talk not only of the
past, but of the present, as well. Only by
reflecting on its historical roots and by
reexamining the rituals which enrich
Passover, can we respond to the historical
importance of the festival in terms of
yesterday and today.
"Speak unto the Children of Israel and
declare unto them the appointed festivals
of the Lord" (Lev. 23:2). From this Biblical
passage, our Talmudic sages deduced that
Moses had ordained that beginning with 30
days prior to each major festival, the laws
and customs characteristic of each holiday
occasion be thoroughly reviewed and
analyzed (Megillah 32a).
It is this sort of reflection expected from
us on Passover that we can engage in as we
read the Haggadah in terms of the
derivative Biblical command: 'And you
shall tell your children on that day saying,
this (Seder) is performed on account of
what the Eternal One did unto me when I
came forth from Egypt (Exod. 13:8).*'
Past in Future
Conceiving of this historical com-
mandment in modern terms, we may
ponder upon our duty to transmit to our
own children the history of the Jewish
people, including Jewish culture and
Jewish tradition, for the purpose of in-
spiring in them a strong Jewish identity
and strong Jewish self-esteem.
In the end, these are the best and most
effective antidotes against Jewish
alienation, intermarriage and assimilation,
the three major debilitating diseases that
erode our American Jewish community.
The Seder matzoh and charosis and
wine and maror; the Haggadah itself; the
happy singing of "Who Knows One?*' and
"Chad Gadya;" the child's anticipation of
the arival of Elijah to sip from his special
cup; that same child's search for the
afikomen all of these things are indeed
the spirit of Passover from time im-
memorial.
But in our own day, all these things
point, as well, to the deep concern of the
authors of the Haggadah for the education
of the young in the injunction of the
Haggadah on this subject involving "the
wise, the wicked, the simple and the one
who has no capacity to inquire."
It is this consideration that brings us to
the modern Jew on Passover -jnir suc-
cesses, but also the penis before us that
challenge our very survival without the
knowledge in our children to carry the past
into the present. And the future.

The Future May Not Be Ours To See
EDITOR,
The Jen ish Floridian:
Recently. 1 read an article in
a newspaper that we shall
never see. The headline
"The USSR Unleashes Its
Nuclear Missiles Toward The
United States." Why? Because
we will all be dead before our
news factories can inform us.
"sse must stop now, look
now, listen now. The time has
come for the people to lead
their "leaders." Man has
armed himself with godly
powers. He is now capable of
melting the world back to its
genesis. Lacking is the mental-
ity to control this genie. For
genie it is this power of the
atom. It can introduce us to a
world of Utopia or it can
destroy a "God's" work.
*hich shall it be?
Our leaders today arc
traumatized by the power of
their arsenals. Diplomacy has
become an anachronism.
Reason has become sub-
servient to rationalization.
Not one "small step" to-
ward world peace has been
gained by the trillions of dol-
lars spent on atomic weaponry
in the last 40 years.
Perfect security can never be
achieved by the strength ot
weaponry but only through
reason and diplomacy. We
have no alternative.
Today, we need a "super
power Congress" with
representatives from the
nuclear nations sitting in
continuous session. This must
be our factory lor peace, dis-
course, diplomacy. Mind to
mind, not gun to gun. musi
our energies absorb.
Become a part ol an effort
to invent anew future lor our
children. ,mn

Long Standing Animosity Apparent
Behind War Between Iraq and Iran
By RICHARD J.CHASDI
Special to
the Jewish Floridian
The Iran-Iraq war presents a
bizarre spectacle for Western
analysts. In the wastelands of
the Basra region of Iraq, each
side makes war against the
other in what seems to be a
never ending battle for the
Shall-al Arab waterway
system. But is this the real
cause?
The Iran-Iraq war, which
started in 1980, has un-
dertones of long standing
Persian-Arab animosity. It is
also the manifestation of indi-
vidual political ambitions and
hegemonic aspirations over
the region. A significant
aspect of this struggle is the
conflict between the estab-
lished Western oriented Sunni
regimes of Saudi Arabia and
other Persian Gulf states, and
the Pan-lslamism of Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini.
SADDAM HUSSEIN'S
motivation for his invasion of
Iran seems clear. His imme-
diaie goals were to assume the
mantle of leader of the radical
Arab world by destroying the
Ayatollah Khomeini and
resolve past territorial dis-
agreements and border
conflicts that developed
during the Pahlevi dynasty.
The tactical and strategic
situation seemed to favor
Saddam's perception of real-
poll!Ik in the Middle East.
American animosity toward
Iran after the hostage crisis
precluded American support
lor Iran and isolated it poli-
tically and militarily. Without
U.S. shipments of spare parts
for its American military
equipment, Iran was viewed as
militarily ineffective.
American animosity toward
Iran, its fear of Arab funda-
mentalism and Saddam's
softened stance towards the
West seemed to indicate to
him that an Iraqi attack was
politically feasible. Subse-
quently, Saddam's goals have
changed radically. The goals
of military conquest have
turned to a fight for political
and personal survival.
THE RELIABILITY of
Iran's military equipment was
questionable when Iraq at-
tacked on September 22, 1980.
More important, Iran's
military cadre had been
decimated in the Iranian
Revolution. Why then did
Iraq's invasion fail? The
reasons seems to be that Iran
had accepted the concept of a
"people's war" and the
personal and economic sacri-
fices necessary to sustain it.
The primary motivation of the
Pasdaran, or Revolutionary
Guard, which works in
conjunction with the regular
army, "is to mobilize the
people for the long war of
attrition which we have to
wage until the Iraqi regime
falls."
Moreover, Iran received
spare parts and munitions
from radical Arab states which
have sided with Iran against
Israel and the West and Com-
munist bloc countries. Israel
for its part has supplied spare
parts and munitions to Iran
estimated by the State Depart-
ment in 1982 to be worth
about $27 million. These
factors significantly increased
the strength of Iran's forces.
The stalemates of the Iran-
Iraq war are due in part to the
defensive orientation
Richard J. Chasdi has an MA degree in
political science from Boston College and an
AB degree, also in political science, from
Brandeis University. He will be working on a
doctorate in the same field beginning next
year. He has written this article especially for
The Jewish Floridian.
strengths of both armies.
Perhaps the most important
factor which caused the initial
stalemate of the war was the
composition of Saddam's
army.
THE IRAQI army is moti-
vated by traditional Western
concepts of nationalism. At
the same time, it is drawn
from traditional Muslim
peasant and other social
classes which are susceptible to
Islamic appeals. As a result, it
may be difficult to motivate
the Iraqi army to fight a war
of aggression against an osten-
sibly Islamic revolution.
Second, in the absence of
highly skilled non-
commissioned officers in the
army, serious performance
failures may have emerged in
the Iraqi army, especially in
offensive operations which
call for the skillfull operation
of technologically, sophis-
ticated weapons systems.
The Iraqi army therefore
may be more capable of rigid
defensive warfare than flexible
offensive operations. Its
inability to advance effectively
is also due to the tactical and
semi-strategic training the
Iraqi High Command receives
from Moscow. '
IRAQ'S LIMITED ability
to occupy parts of Iran is
matched by its hesitation to do
so. Saddam fears that his army
of Sunni and Shiite soldiers
would suffer significant
casualties and loss of morale.
Iran has no such constraints
on its efforts to occupy parts
of Iraq.
At the first and most ob-
vious level, the I ran-Iraq war
is a war of self-defense for
Iran. But war with Iraq is a
logical first step in the conflict
between Arab fundamentalism
and Sunni governments that
has polarized the region on a
basis of ideology as opposed
to unifying it on the basis of
Arab solidarity. Moderate
pro-Western regimes have
aligned themselves with Iraq
because they fear that Sad-
dam's demise might signi-
ficantly affect their own
stability.
A buffer zone created out of
a part of Iraq would reduce
Iran's isolation and improve
its military posture.
The second Iraqi-Iranian
stalemate began during the
middle of 1982. The Wash-
ington Post reported on July
2, 1982 that "fighting outside
of Basra appeared to have
entered a lull, with both sides
seeking to reinforce and
resupply units that have
suffered badly in com-
bat ."
PERHAPS IT can be
argued that the officers who
command the Ayatollah's
forces were never trained by
the American or Iraelis for
offensive action. The prime

Because Someone Cared
By STEPHEN LEVITT
ACSW
A personal view from
the Executive Director of
the Jewish Family
And Children's Service
(All case names mentioned
in these articles are fictitious;
client information at Jewish
family and Children's Service
is held in the strictest of confi-
dence).
I was asked, recently, to
participate in the formulation
of a social group consisting of
singles. Although I have been
asked many times before for
my professional opinion and
thoughts regarding "how a
particular social group should
function," the question that
would inevitably arise at such
4 meetings would be, "What do
we do with the widows and-or
what do we do with the
divorcees?"
There has always been much
professional, as well as lay,
debate concerning whether or
not divorcees and widows
should be placed together in a
social group situation. After
all, widows have one set of
feelings about how their
spouses departed from their
lives in contra-distinction to
the divorced who had con-
scious and manipulative
ontrol over their becoming
* .ingle. Inevitably, the argu-
nents concerning the
stigma" attached to divorc-
ing in our society and culture
arise. Presumably, being a
widow carries little, if any,
"stigma" to it.
Hut is this really so? In a
recently published and rather
exhaustive study of this
subject conducted at Case
Western Reserve University in
Ohio and Loyola University of
Chicago, sponsored in part by
the NIMH and Administration
on Aging, as well as the Social
Security Administration, some
surprising new findings have
arisen on this particular
dilema. For one thing, in this
particular study it was
revealed that the divorced
indicate a higher degree of
emotional distress to certain
subjects when presented these
on a fixed questionaire than
do widows. As a matter of
Bernstein, Narkier,
Monchlck and Karp, PA
Happy Passover
fact, divorced women reported
a greater degree of cynicism
about the possibility of re-
marriage and being happy in
one's re-marriage; a greater
degree of dependence on rela-
tives as their only "true
friends;" feeling more like a
"fifth wheel" in social situa-
tions; and feeling more "taken
advantage of" when people
know that you are a divorcee;
and finally a greater loss of
status and respect after
becoming divorced.
As expected widows tended
to hold much more favorable
views on various "scales of
emotionality" towards their
deceased spouses than did the
divorced. In those instances
where the divorced person.was
divorced unwillingly, that
respondent became much
more similar in aspect and
attitude to a widow than he or
she did to other divorcees
responding. It is thought, in
conclusion, that the positive
memories and images that
certain divorced people and
almost all widows-widowers
retain of their spouses per-
forms an important psycho-
logical function that is, at
present, not very well under-
stood but generally assumed to
be both soothing and emo-
tionally productive for the
survivor. Most divorced
people do not retain such a
positive image of their former
spouse. Hence, they are
deprived of the palliative
effect of that memory of
image.
It is through research of this
nature that professionals are
beginning to see those areas of
importance to people who are
in a state of emotional
distress. Professionals, thus,
can begin to "zero in" and
help to repair the damage by
eliminating the sense of isola-,
tion and cynicism felt by the
single divorced parent, for
example.

DEVOTED TO DISCUSSION OF THEMES AND ISSUES RELEVANT TO JEWISH LIFE. FAST AND PRESENT
Long Search for Freedom
By RABBI
DR. MORRIS SILBERMAN
Temple B'nai Jacob
Passover is a glorious fes-
tival, commemorating a great
event which took place 3500
years ago the exodus from
egypt. It is not interesting that
this festival is central to every
part of our tradition. It is
mentioned in the kiddush on
Shabbat "Zecher litziat
mitzrayim" a reminder of
the exodus from Egypt. It is
mentioned in our prayers, on
most holidays and on special
occasions. Yet we have no
event commemorating the
entrance into the promised
land. Everyone knows the date
of the Exodus, the 15th day of
the month of Nissan. How
many know the date of the en-
trance into the Promised
Landl?
Freedom, the theme of
Passover, is something we
never seem to acquire fully.
We never quite reach the
Promised Land of full
freedom. We often seem to
feel taht we are reaching the
Rabbi Dr. Morris Silberman
end of the road and then we
turn a corner and there is a
new avenue. For centuries
human history has been like
that. There was the Magna
Carta of Great Britain, an
affirmation of human rights
that brightened the darkness
of the Middle Ages. Then
came the French revolution
with its slogan: "Liberty,
Equality, Fraternity." The
idealism of the revolutionaries
was lost and a new slavery
came about. I he American
Revolution with its Declara-
tion of Independence, the
Constitution and the Bill of
Rights did not eradicate
prejudice against minorities.
We are still struggling with
Civil Rights, Equal Rights,
Human Rights. In Martin
Luther King's vision of a time
when white and black citizens,
Catholics, Protestants and
Jews will walk together as
brothers and sisters, still
remains a dream the great
American dream. We have not
yet entered the Promised
Land. We are still striving to
build and to fashion a new
future for all our citizens.
Israel is still struggling to hold
on to the Promised Land!
Passover is a reminder that we
must continue the march to
the Promised Land. If we
continue our search for
freedom for all humanity,
then we shall reach a "geulah
shlemah" a redemption for
all G-d's children everywhere.
This is our dream; this is our
hope; this is our prayer.

In absolute terms, the report
refers to some 540,000 Jewish
boys and girls in the diaspora
attending 3,330 educational
institutions. The report
showed a pronounced dispar-
ity between the United States
and the rest of the diaspora in
terms of school attendance.
The U.S. figure, 28 percent, is
significantly lower than the
overall diaspora average. In
England, the figure is 47
percent; and in other countries
the figures range from 67 to
100 percent.
These percentages are of
Jewish children who receive
Jewish education in some
form. In the U.S., 72 percent
of Jewish pupils enrolled in
some institution of Jewish
education, attend supple-
mentary education insti-
tutions.
For the whole diaspora, the
proportion of pupils enrolled
in the first six grades of day
school is 1.6 times higher than
those enrolled in grades seven
and up. This may be due,
Oubb says, to a preference for
public schooi secondary
education or to the more
limited availability of Jewish
secondary schools because of
cost or other reasons.
The dropout rate at Bar-Bat
Mitzvah in supplementary
schools is found to be even
higher than the drop in attend-
ance in the day schools bet-
ween elementary and
secondary levels. Fully 70
percent of supplementary
school pupils quit after Bar-
Bat Mitzvah.
Another key finding was
tthat in the entire diaspora,
two-thirds of the day schools
are Orthodox, ranging from
ultra-religious through main-
stream Orthodoxy to "tradi-
tional." The figure for North
America is 63 percent and for
the rest of the diaspora it is 69
percent, a two-thirds overage.
There is a vast difference
between North America and
elsewhere, however, in the
breakdown of supplementary
schools. In North America,
the Reform and Conservative
movements had more supple-
mentary schools than the
Orthodox. In the U.S. the
figures for supplementary
schools are: Orthodox, 13
percent; Conservative, 43
percent; and Reform, 33
percent. "Other" and
"unknown" affiliations
account for 10 percent.
In the rest of the diaspora,
nearly two-thirds of the
supplementary schools are
Orthodox; 11 percent are
Reform (catering to some 20
percent of the pupils attending
such schools); and 25 percent
are classified as "other" and
"unknown." There are no
Conservative supplementary
schools as such outside North
America, nor indeed Con-
servative day schools. The day
school breakdown outside
North America is: Orthodox,
70 percent; Reform, 1.8
percent; and "other" and
"unknown," 29 percent.
On the disparity between the
Orthodox and the other
branches of Judaism in terms
of day schools in North
America, Dubb wrotes: "One
reason for the difference in
distribution between the two
types of schools in North
America suggested by a
preliminary examination of
school sponsorship may be
that the day schools are
designed to serve the widest
possible corss-section and
therefore adopt a traditional

Happiness of Purim Comes To Gil Amal
By MARILYN GRANT
Project Renewal Coordinator
The atmosphere in the Nat
Sedley Sports Hall typified the
difference between what was
and what is today the mood of
the people in our Project
Renewal neighborhood of Gil
Amal in Hod Hasharon. The
occasion was the annual
Purim party. The site was the
Sports Hall, named for an
outstanding benefactor from
Hollywood, Florida, one of
the two communities
"twinned" with Gil Amal and
Giora sections.
Purim is traditionally a lime
ol costumes, parties, Invohty,
and even a little drinking. It
has been, over the past years, a
rmiziej jutsrmnn xvian
PROJECT RENCWAI-
difficult time for the residents
of Gil Amal. Their lives had
given them little to laugh
about, little to be optimistic
about, little incentive to dress
up and act foolish.
But this \ear. sou could feel
the difference. The hall was sei
up lor maybe 50 people. More
than 200 showed up. The
decorations were ga> anJ
colorful and the basketball
court disappeared under the
bright lights, fest.ve de.ora-
t.on, and danc.ng happy
people from the ne.gh-
borhoods.
Project Renewal was
beginning to make the flilier-
ence. People were beginning to
be proud of their existence.
The mood was Jet much up
beat and optimistic.

"consumed" quarts of liquor

around the hall, suddenly
seeing a "mouse" and giving
chase. And there was Moses,
black robed and white
bearded, walking among the
Israelites and handing down
the Tablets of the Ten
Commandments.
The music filled the hall, the
entertainment sparkled as did
the entire crowd. Purim had
come to Gil Amal and this
year because of the Nat Sedley
Sports Hall, the involvement
ol South Broward and Palm
Beach Counties, the atmos-
phere that has been created
through Project Renewal
itself, this year Purim was cel-

somewhat from the Judaism
of Jews elsewhere in the
world. Important Jewish
novelists have used the Seder
as a focal point of their fiction
depicting the returning Jew or
the alienated Jew, just as
spritual leaders have stressed
the value of the Seder as a
family gathering which
strengthens the unity of the
individuals of a clan as well as
the Jewish people in general.
Yet there is more to the
Passover Seder than the
recognition that it is a major
Jewish ritual. By this time we
all know that the Jews were
slaves in Egypt and that the
Hebrews escaped their
bondage and sought and
found freedom in the
Land.
Holy
THE HAGGADAH each
year repeats and reiterates the
ancient tale and the children
who gather around the Seder
table go through the same-
albeit fascinating games of
finding the Afikomen, or
reciting the Four Questions, or
waiting for the Prophet Elijah
to enter the home, else why
would the full glass of wine be
set aside for him?
Even those Jews who
seldom, if ever adhere to the
ritual, are aware of the
meaning of the Seder. If they
are educated Americans who
have studied comparative
religion and have read the
Bible critics and the historians,
they may recall that some of
the recent books on compara-
tive religion point out that
other peoples, too, have the
equivalent of a ritualistic
family dinner. Jews may call it
a Seder and the primitives may
call it something else; it is
nearly the same thing.
Still, they know, deep
down, that it isn't the same
thing; it is different, for Jews
have invested the Seder with
elements strange to all other
peoples. The Seder is com-
pletely Jewish, connected
strongly with Jewish history,
religion and folkways. Never
mind that the Babylonians or
the Japanese or the Bedouins
have had family gatherings
which follow a particular
order. The Seder is Jewish and
no other people has anything
quite like it. Thus, it
represents a way of life and a
people.
THAT THIS is so. is easily
proved b> a number of per-
sonal stories I have heard
within the past few vests

Passover Is A Major Jewish Ritual
Continued from preceding page
about Jews who have strayed,
or drifted from the Jewish
people and, when Pesach
comes around, look for some
way in which they can return
to the fold or prove to them-
selves that they are part of a
larger entity, something bigger
and more significant than
themselves.
There is the tale of the Jew
who married a Quaker girl and
because Quakers are tolerant
people without all of the ritual
which attaches to other
Christian groups, this Jew
hardly ever felt or considered
himself out of the Jewish
group or a renegade to his
people.
But then he became the
lather of a son and when the
lad was nine years old a
year the father decided that
the boy should be subjected or
exposed to some of the ritual
of the Jewish faith. He himself
had not been to a synagogue
for years, nor was he capable,
for deeply psychological
reasons, simply to enter a
Jewish prayer house on a
major holiday and proceed to
worship God with his fellow
Jews.
So he asked some Jewish
friends just how he could
acquaint his child with some
aspects of Judaism without
himself breaking his own
habits, which did not include
synagogue attendance. He was
told, or it was suggested to
him, that perhaps Passover
would be a good holiday with
which to begin.

an educated man nonetheless,
approached the problem in a
semi-scholarly manner. He
took some books from the
library and read up on
Passover. Then, on his own,
he formulated plans for a
Seder. His wife, unopposed 10
his program, became curious
herself, and the family
proceeded to organize its own
Seder. The boy warmly anti-
cipated this change in his life.
And my informant who
related the story to me with
great relish told me the
Seder went off well, the lather
discovered himself intrigued
once more b\ Jewish ritual
and the last my informant had
heard the Jew and Ins
Quaker wile were beginning to
drop in on the local synagogue
from time to time because thes
had enrolled their son in the
Sunday School there and did
not want him to feel that they
had registered him and had
forgotten about him.
A friend of mine represents
another side of the coin, in a
way. He is the lather of four
daughters and one son and
although both he and his wife
are Jewish they both were
raised by non-observant
parents and neither of them
knew very much about Jewish
holidays or religion. Now,
however, they had purchased a
house on Long Island and dis-
covered that most ol their new
friends and neighbors
belonged to the Center. Ihev.

somehow left out of things.
Besides, the girls, who were
old enough to desire an active
social life, wanted the parents
to belong to something. And
they let their complaints be
heard.

about this "problem," said,
"How do you go about ob-
serving something you know
