Alec E n gel stein To Receive
Human Relations Award
Dr. Theodore J. Rosov, pres-
ident of the Palm Beach County
Chapter of the American Jewish
Committee, recently announced
that the recipient of the 1984
Sylvan Cole Human Relations
Award will be Alec Engelstein,
prominent community leader and
builder-developer. This award of
the American Jewish Committee
will be presented to Engelstein at a
dinner held in his honor at the
Royce Hotel on Dec. 4, 6:30 p.m.
This yearly award is in recognition
of individual outstanding commit-
ment to and concern for good
human relations.
Alec Engelstein was born in
Cernauti, Roumania. While still a
young child, he and his family
were deported to the Transnistria
Camp in the Ukraine. They were
detained in this camp from 1941
until 1944 when they were liber-
ated by the Russians. The family
returned to their home town which
was occupied by the Soviets at that

Mideast Conference
Israel's Survival Vital to U.S.
Assistant News Coordinator
"More than ever before
there is hope for peace in the
Middle East today," Israel's
ambassador to the United
States told a near capacity
crowd of more than 1000
people who attended the 8th
annual Mideast Conference
held recently at Temple Beth
El. The event was sponsored
by the Israel-Mideast Task
Force of the Community Rela-
tions Council of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
The Honorable Meir
Rosenne cited the peace treaty
with Egypt, the destruction of
the Palestinian Liberation
Organization's (PLO) infra-
structure in Lebanon and the
failure of the psychological
war waged against Israel as
reasons for his optimism.
"Jews are more united than
ever before in their support of
Israel and in ensuring the
rights of Jewry world wide,"
he said.
In spite of the cold peace
that exists now betwen Egypt
and Israel and the loss of

Task Force, moderated the conference.
revenues from the oil fields in
the Sinai, Rosenne declared
that Israel was not sorry for
signing the peace treaty with
Egypt. "One human life is
more important than the bil-
lions of petrodollars lost," he
Rosenne went on to say that
ultimate peace in the area is
more attainable now because
the PLO have been denied
their territorial base in
Lebanon. With the split inside
the PLO, there is a greater
chance of negotiations with
those who truly represent the
Palestinian people.
Referring to the current
talks that are underway for the
withdrawal of Israeli troops
from Lebanon, Rosenne
stated emphatically that Israel
will not relinquish the right to
protect its northern border.
"We didn't want to annex one
square mile of Lebanon but we
will only leave when our
security is assured. Syria is
always the last country to sign
a treaty with Israel."
Turning to Israel's
economy, Rosenne stressed
that Israel is facing its current
economic crisis due to the
costs of the Yom Kippur War,
the war in Lebanon and the
peace with Egypt. In asking
the U.S. for economic aid, the
ambassador pointed out that
the help sought is in both
countries' interests. Israel is an
ally upon which the U.S. can
rely and has shared its knowl-
edge of the advanced Soviet

Rabbi Melvin Kieffer, guest speaker at the first seminar meeting
ol the Chaplain Aides of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County, told the 50 members that their work helps to alleviate
the pain of loneliness for the Jewish elderly who are confined to
nursing homes.
Loneliness, The Worst Pain,
Alleviated By Chaplain Aides
Chaplain Aide
"Loneliness is the worst
pain in the world, and your
work helps to alleviate it,"
Rabbi Melvin Kieffer told 50
members of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County's Chaplain Aide
Program. He was guest
speaker at their first seminar
meeting at the Federation
office, Tuesday, Nov. 13.
Rabbi Kieffer, retired from
Old Westbury Hebrew
Congregation, Long Island,
New York, after 26 years of
service, has spent a good part
of his professional career as
chaplain for the elderly. He
advised Chaplain Aides to act
the part ol professional'.
"Your own self-image is
important if your work is to be
effective with residents,
patients and staff of health
facilities." He told them to get
to know the administrators
and staff; to cultivate their
friendship which will serve to
ease the problems concerned
with Chaplain Aide work.
Five principles for rendering
religious services were outlined
by the Rabbi: I. The religious
service should be brief. 2. Use
prayers and hymns that are
familiar. 3. Distribute parts of
the service to the residents to
induce participation. 4. The
service should include a brief
message i.e. a summary of
the Torah reading for the
week, a relevant story or par-

CJF Assembly Opening Disrupted By
Demonstration For Ethiopian Jews
was night that will long be
remembered. It was an un-
precedented night for a
General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Feder-
ations. The opening plenary
session was to have featured a
major policy statement by CJF
president Martin Citrin.
However, it was cancelled
following a prolonged and
boisterous protest from some
40 young people on behalf of
Ethiopian Jewry. (See separate
The issue of Ethiopian
Jewry was to have been the
topic of a forum following the
opening plenary session late at
night, between 9:30 and 10:45
p.m. when five other con-
current sessions were also
scheduled. But the issue of
Ethiopian Jewry became the
focal point of the night by
virtue of the demonstration.
The actual planned session,
"Ethiopian Jewry: New Chal-
lenges and Responsibilities,"
was almost anti-climactic by
comparison to the demon-
stration. Only some 1,000 of
the 2,000 Jewish community
leaders from the United States
and Canada at the 53rc

Ambassador H. Eugene
Douglas, U.S. coordinator for
refugee affairs, described the
suffering of millions of people
around the world suffering
from famine, disease and
oppression and noted that the
plight of Ethiopian Jewry is
part of this global tragedy.
Referring to the earlier
demonstration, he exhorted
the audience to "have more
trust" in the efforts un-
dertaken by the American and
Israeli governments to rescue
Ethiopian Jewry.
In an answer to the
demonstrators, who had
criticized the Israeli gover-
nment for its failure to remove
Jews directly from Ethiopia
while private Jewish agencies
in the U.S. and Canada were
doing so, Douglas cautioned
against private groups trying
to substitute their relief and
rescue work for that of
government efforts.
The reality, he said, is that
private groups are not in a
position to match what
governments can do through
diplomatic, financial and
behind the scenes activities in
providing the kind of aid
required by mass populations
in famine stricken areas.
Private groups "should butt
out of this field," Douglas
said. He noted that private
groups often impede and make
more difficult the work of
governments in helping those
in need.
During the question and
answer period which followed
his presentation and that of
two Israelis and two Ethiopian
Jews who now live in Israel,
Simcha Jacobovici, who led
the demonstration at the
opening plenary session, was
given time to address the
audience. He recounted the
terrible plight of Ethiopian
"The world is now watching
Ethiopia starve to death," he
said. "Thousands of Jews are
among the dying. The
Ethiopian Jewish community
is fast becoming extinct. How
much longer can they sur-
Jacobovici, a student at
Toronto University and the
producer of an award-winning
film on Ethiopian Jews, said
there are now 12,000 Jewish
refugees in Sudan. Moreover,
8,000 Ethiopian Jews are
victims of the worst con-
tinuing drought in Africa's
history. This summer, he said,
2,000 Jews have already died
and more than 300 are dying
every month. He quoted as his
sources for this information
The New York Times, The
Toronto Star and The Jerusa-
lem Post.
He declared, to applause,
"How many more Jews must
die before Ethiopian Jews
become the number one
priority at the General
Assembly?" He stated that "it
is not unreasonable to ask that
we show particular concern
for Ethiopian Jews who
survived 2,000 years and who
are now on the verge of ex-
tinction. Everyone is suffering
in Ethiopia and in Africa.
While it is not the respon-
sibility of the American
government to worry first
about Ethiopian Jews, it is the
responsibility of the organized
Jewish community to be first
concerned with Jews in
danger. If it is not a number
one priority for us, why
should it be a priority for
anyone else?"
Jacobovici said that while

"Standardized Achievement
Testing." Dr. Spotts, execu-
tive director of the Bureau of
Jewish Education in Atlanta,
Ga., and an authority in the
field of testing and evaluation,
defined the concepts and
development of the Stanford
Achievement Tests, which are
administered annually in the
Spring at JCDS. Explaining
that test scores demonstrate a
student's achievement relative
to a nationally normed
population, Dr. Spotts em-
phasized the importance of
utilizing test results for diag-
nostic and instructional pur-
Speaking to parents at an
evening meeting, Dr. Spotts
stressed that standardized
achievement tests are one tool
available to parents and
schools to help them assess
students' progress and needs.
Among the other important
considerations in assessment
are teacher-made criterion
referenced tests and anecdotal
reports from teachers who
spend months and years with
students. "A high score on the
SAT's is generally an indica-
tion of real achievement,"

consultation with Hana

The focus of their discussions
was on the new JCDS partial
Hebrew Language Immersion

programming ideas for the
Jewish Holidays.
The entire staff of the
school participated in an
afternoon workshop about

population, in the last six
months 2,000 Ethiopian Jews
died in refugee camps outside
of Ethiopia's borders, 10,000
to 14,000 Ethiopian Jews are
suffering in the overcrowded
disease-ridden refugee camps
and 6,000 or more very old,

are still trapped in Ethiopia.
The remnant of the Jewish
community of Ethiopia's

threatened by the ongoing

Gondar, Jacobovici said.
He warned that in several
years there will still be a
Christian and Moslem
community in Ethiopia, but
that the critical mass of the
Jews will have dwindled to a
point of near-extinction.
He said that he and the
other demonstrators are "not
bums. I am pro-Zionist and
pro-Israel." Jacobovici
praised Israel's efforts in
resettling and absorbing
Ethiopian Jews once they are
in Sudan but added that the

Israel Is

Thirteen years ago Emma
Gerringer retired to Century
Village and has been an active
force in community life ever
Emma helped out in her late
husband's wholesale house
furnishing business in new
York. After selling the busi-
ness, she decided she should
remain active and worked as a
bookkeeper, secretary, and a
production manager.
Emma has been active in
B'nai B'rith, Hadassah.

Her involvement with the
Israel Bond Drive began over
12 years ago when she was
invited to a Bond Tea at the
home of Olga Prince. This was
her first introduction to what
the Israel Bond Program was
all about.
For the past 12 years Emma
has held a luncheon for Israel
Bonds serving all home
cooked foods. For eight years
she held the luncheon in her
own apartment serving as
many as 45 people to a sit
down luncheon. Her neigh-
bors would help her move her
furniture to accommodate her
luncheon guests.
Evelyn Blum, Israel Bond
Women's Division Chairman,
attended and spoke at the
luncheon every year. She
finally convinced Emma that
her apartment was too small
for such a large undertaking
and offered the use of her own
home. So for the past four
years Emma's Israel Bond
Luncheon has been held at the
home of Evelyn Blum.
Another change also oc-
cured four years ago. Two
women, Irene Steinberg and
Jean Polakoff, wanted to
contribute to the preparation
of the luncheon. Prior to that
time Emma planned, cooked
and paid for the entire event.

The Role of Religion In Politics
The Social Action Com-
mittee of Temple Israel will
host a luncheon meeting of the
clergy of all religious
denominations in Palm Beach
County at 12 noon on Dec. 3
at the Temple's Schwartzberg
Hall on North Flagler Drive in
West Palm Beach.
The subject of the meeting is
"Interfaith Exploration
Religion and Politics." In an-
nouncing the meeting,
Abraham Gerber, chairman of
the committee, stated, "The
recent presidential election
campaign in the United States
has lent renewed emphasis to
the need for people of good
will of all faiths to carefully
examine the relationship
between religious principles
and practices and political
action. Clear delineation of
the distinctions between the
personal religious and moral
convictions of the individual
and political action must be
maintained if religious and
political freedoms are to con-
tinue to prevail. Blurring the
lines separating religion and
politics could pose a serious
threat to the liberties of all rel-
igious faiths. The committee is
hopeful that this meeting will
be the beginning of a fruitful
on-going dialogue among all
religious groups which will
contribute to the clarfication
and resolution of the many
difficult questions surround-
ing this issue."
Rabbi Howard Shapiro,
spiritual leader of Temple
Israel, writing to his fellow
clergymen in Palm Beach
County to extend his invita-
tion to the meeting empha-
sized the need to give this issue
careful attention. He ex-
pressed the essential purpose
of the meeting stating, "We
need to come together to have
dialogue; we need to come to-
gether in search for common
The keynote speaker will be
Rabbi David Saperstein,
director of the Religious
Action Center in Washington,
D.C. The center is the liaison
between the federal govern-
ment and the Reform Jewish
Movement. Rabbi Saperstein
is also an attorney and adjunct
professor of Comparative
Jewish and American Law at
Georgetown University Law
School. He is the author of
numerous articles and two
books. Rabbi Saperstein is a
graduate of Cornell University
and the Hebrew Union

Readers Write-
' Fulsome' Is Wrong Adjective
The Jewish Floridian:
So Shimon Peres was
"fulsome in his praise" for the
reception he received in
Washington as reported in The
Jewish Floridian of Oct. 19.
American Heritage defines
fulsome as 1) offensively
excessive or insincere; 2)
offensive to the senses; 3)
loathsome, disgusting.
In a local journal, I would
pass it off with a shrug of the
shoulders. But for a Jewish
journal, well really.
West Palm Beach
The Jewish Floridian:
Webster's Unabridged
Dictionary defines "fulsome"
as loathsome or disgusting.
The word fulsome is
derogatory, opposite to the
intended meaning, unless the
intended meaning was
West Pain Beach
Nelson's talmudical statement
appears to be fulsome in its
loathing for the use of fulsome
in the Jewish Telegraphic
y Agency report. We suggest
that readers Hofkins and
Nelson investigate further.
The Bible of all English-
language dictionaries, the
OED (Oxford English Dic-
tionary), agrees with both
American Heritage and
Webster's. But OED also
defines the meaning of
fulsome as overly generous in
praise, as does the Britannica
Dictionary. The JTA report
appears to be vindicated in its
use of the word, as are our
staffers who edited it. All
parties concerned had in mind
exactly what the word intends
in its most fulsome sense.

Never let it be said that the Jewish commu-
nity in Glasgow is a quiet one. There are nine
shuls, two Hebrew schools and five youth orga-
nizations. And if you think all this activity is
enough to make headlines, you're right.
Because Glasgow even has a weekly newspaper
which records and celebrates the various
marriages, births and bar mitzvahs!
Reading this good news is apt to bring more
than just a smile to one's lips. Quite
often it brings the taste of fine scotch
whisky to one's lips, too. In America,
such news is often greeted with J&.B
Rare Scotch. Its flavor, created by
skillful blending perfected over the
centuries, has made it this country's
most popular scotch. And, if we may
be permitted a bit of editorializing,
has amply justified its reputation as

The basic reason for his
skepticism about the
possibility for a breakthrough
is the continuing internecine

Mideast Conference
Continued from Page 2
weaponry it has captured.
Tom Dine, executive
director of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC), who spoke prior to
Rosenne, reported that the
1984 political campaign was
good for the Jews, according
to the pro-Israel lobby. "We
have a continuing pro-Israel
White House and Congress
which remains sensitive to our
concerns," he said. He at-
tributed the political successes
to the Jewish activists who be-
came involved early in all
phases of the campaigns
throughout the country. "Our
community has unprecedented
access to those elected to the
99th Congress," Dine said.
Dine was optimistic about
the pro-Israel stance of the
Congress. Forty-four of the
forty-seven freshmen elected
to the House of Representa-
tives are in close touch with
supporters of Israel from their
Congressional districts around
the country, he noted. "Of the
27 open seats, all but three
who were elected are sensitive
to our issues."
In the Senate all the prime
supporters of Israel were re-
elected with a net gain of five.
Dine stressed that the financial
and organizational support of
AIPAC contributed to the
success of many of the pro-
Israel candidates. "Two-thirds
of every modern day Senate
campaign funding goes for
television ads," he explained.
In the senatorial race in
Illinois between Charles Percy
and Paul Simon, money from
the Jewish community made
possible the one last thrust on
TV that may have contributed
to Simon's victory, according
to Dine.
The Mideast Conference
was chaired by Dr. Mark
Rattinger, chairman of the
Israel-Mideast Task Force.
Alec Engelstein, vice president
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, brought
greetings from Federation. As
chairwoman of the Com-
munity Relations Council, Dr.
Helen Hoffman paid tribute to
the Soviet Jewry Task Force
whose members distributed
postcards in the lobby to be
signed and sent to Ambas-
sador Anatoly Dobrynin on
behalf of Soviet Jews who
wish to emigrate to Israel. She
mentioned that the Com-
munity Plea for Soviet Jewry
will take place on Jan. 27 and
another CRC sponsored event,
the Catholic-Jewish Dialogue,
will occur on Jan. 16 and 17.
At the beginning of the
program, Elaine Shapiro of
Temple Beth El led the Star
Spangled Banner and Howard
Dardashti led the Hatikvah.
