New Year's Message From The President
Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County
Ias 5744 draws to a close we
|ve much to be thankful for
jmuch to challenge us as
[dividual Jews and as Jewish
mmunal leaders.

demerits, we will have
the New Year by
(owing our determination to
our responsibilities as
rtnm for life with Jews
wnd the world. Our chal-
lenge is sharpened by a world
environment which threatens
to dishearten us. Living and
flourishing in our free
dynamic society we have the
strength and the means to
meet this challenge forcefully
and effectively in the year
ahead. 1 am convinced that
working together we can
achieve any goal that we set
for ourselves and that we can
meet any challenge to assure
the survival of the Jewish
community here at home, in
Israel and around the world.
We have a great task ahead
of us in the building of our
local community. There is
much to be done in this
coming year. We must build a
new home for our Jewish
Community Center, we must
increase our services to our
elderly population, and we
must tackle the problems of
the single parent families in
our community. These are not
easy tasks, nor are they impos-
sible ones.
We go forth from these days
of reflection reaching out to
the ideals for which we are
committed. Working together
we will make S745 a landmark
year in the history of the
Jewish people. I look forward
to working with you in the
coming year as we strive
together to realize our Jewish

Unity Gov't. Approved; Peres Becomes Prime Minister
JERUSALEM (JTA) The central committees of
the Labor Party and Likud voted earlier this month on the
unity government agreed to by their respective party
leaders. Despite anger over the disposition of Cabinet
portpolios, especially in Labor ranks, they approved the
broad-based regime in time for Premier-designate Shimon
Peres to present it to the Knesset for endorsement. He won
the vote of confidence and became Israel's new Prime
Although there was widespread dissatisfaction in both
camps, it was most rampant in Peres' Labor Party over
concessions made to Likud. Surprise and anger were
aroused in labor circles by Peres' agreement, albeit
reluctant, to award a senior economic portfolio
Minister of Industry and Commerce to former Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon, one of the most controversial
figures on the Israeli political scene.
LABOR1TES ARE chagrined by the allocation of all
major economic portfolios in the unity Cabinet to Likud
ministers. Primarily for that reason, the "Lashiluv''
faction in Labor, consisting of professionals and academi-
cians led by MK Micha Harish, announced that they would
vote against the unity accord in the Central Committee.
Similarly, the United Kibbutz Movement said it would
oppose the Labor-Likud deal.
But party leaders were confident that the Central Com-
mittee would give its approval and that opponents of the
unity regime would, in the end, accept the majority
decision, which it did by a 394-166 vote.
Nevertheless, Labor faced the almost certain defection
of MK Yossi Sarid who announced that he
would seek to form a parliamentary bloc with Mapam and
Shulamit Aloni's Citizens Rights Movement (CRM).
Mapam had already announced its secession from its
decades-old alignment with the Labor Party because it
refused to particiate in or support any government with
Likud. Peres said he would continue efforts to keep the

During the High Holiday
period, as well as throughout
the year, the Chaplain Aides
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County endeavor
to bring a "little bit of Yid-
dishkeit" to the residents of
nursing homes in the county.
Jeanne Glasser, interim chair-
man of the Chaplain Aides,
said, "Residents tell us that
our coming gives them a
reason to live. This means so
much for those who live in
nursing homes without a
Jewish environment."
For the sixth year under the
auspices of the Chaplain's
Aides, volunteers will be of-
ficiating at High Holiday
homes throughout the county.

As is so often the case with
interviews of this kind, there
was a natural tendency on the
part of the son to speak for his
mother as though she were
somehow not present physic-
ally in the same room. I cau-
tioned against this and began
to include "mom" in the
discussion. After half an hour,
it became quite apparent that
she had a multiplicity of
problems, many of which
impeded her ability to make a
meaningful contribution to the
discussion of what was going
on in her life, how to solve her
problems and how to plan for
the future. During the course
of the interview I detected a
faint odor of urine and
suspected an "accident."
I reflected on a number of
astounding facts that had
come to my attention shortly
after this meeting concerning
this lady. Richard K.
Goodstein, M.D., of the
Carrier Foundation in Belle
Mead, N.J., has indicated that
the elderly tend to "collect
large numbers of medications
from a myriad of sources,
using an average of 13
prescriptions a year. They
commonly take higher doses
than were prescribed and of
multiple medications and for
longer periods of time than
was originally deemed appro-
priate." According to Dr.
Goodstein, "Seven times the
number of significant
medicine side effects of other
age groups occur in 25 percent
of hospitalized elderly
patients, and it has been
reported that 20 percent of
psychogeriatric admissions are
precipitated by adverse effects
of psychotropic drugs. The
problem is compounded a**
concerning what medications
seemed to cause what kind of
effects in this particular indi-
vidual. I was able to see this
particular lady several months
later actively participating in a
senior's group, and although
she still had difficulty with
navigation and some problems
which, unhappily, were
beyond reversibility, much of
the "confusion" seemed to
have abated.

In the "Rosh Hashanah
Anthology," author Phillip
Goodman credits the custom
of extending good wishes to
friends in the month of Elul
preceding Rosh Hashanah to
Rabbi Jacob Modin (c. 1360-
1427), who would say, "May
you be inscribed and sealed in
a good year." His teacher,
Rabbi Shalom ben Isaac of
Vienna, would put this saluta-
tion on all his correspondence
during Elul. This custom
continued until printed
greeting cards became
Special greeting cards were
made in Germany in the first
half of the nineteenth century.
One, dated 1841, was printed
on a double sheet of white
paper and bears the text in
Hebrew and Yiddish sur-
rounded by a golden decora-
tive border. Another uses the
same languages, which are
common among German
Jews, and was drawn on green
paper in 1837. Musical instru-
ments formed a border around
the card.
The first commercial
greeting card was probably
printed in Eastern Europe in
the late nineteenth century. Il-
lustrations on these early
Jewish New Year cards in-
cluded scenes of Jewish life
related to the High Holy Days
and Sukkot such as blowing
the shofar, Tashlikh, and the
sukkah. Other cards show a
bride and groom under the
wedding canopy, a dove
bearing a letter in her bill, or
baskets of flowers. Some cards
were in the form of a check
drawn on the "Bank of
Heaven," promising "120
happy years will be granted by
the Creator of the world with
health, sustenance, blessing
and success, wealth and
In Eastern Europe greeting
cards were hand delivered by
sextons of the synagogues and
their assistants. The exchange
of greeting cards was also
widespread in Russia and
Poland up to the time of
Zionist and other Jewish
organizations soon discovered
that greeting cards were an
excellent source for fund-
raising. As early as 1894 a
Zionist group commissioned a
Rosh Hashanah poem by
Hayyim Nahman Bialik, the
eminent Hebrew poet, for its
Rosh Hashanah cards were
printed in Israel in the latter
half of the nineteenth century.
Israel has become an im-
portant source of these cards
in recent years and prominent
Israeli artists have had their
artwork reproduced on cards.
In England, an orthodox
Jew who published Christmas
greeting cards for the king and
queen, also began producing
Jewish New Year cards at the
turn of the century. More
recent cards express British
Jewry's addition to the
customary greeting: "A
Happy New Year and Well
Over the Fast."
Early American cards
seemed to be an adaptation of
the secular New Year with "A
Happy New Year" in both
Hebrew and English. Before
World War I most greeting
cards were imported from
Germany. During World War
11 greeting cards were designed
especially for servicemen to
send home. Some showed a
serviceman blowing a shofar,
and one from Guam bore the
wish, "Peace, peace t0 mm
who is far off and him who is
In America as the High
Holidays approach, Jewish
organizations and yeshivot in
Israel continue to distribute
cards to their donors. Even
UNICEF has a Rosh
Hashanah card among its
selection of cards for various
occasions. Although the
shapes, styles and designs for
Rosh Hashanah cards are
profuse, some people elect to
design their own. Whatever
the artform, the message
remains the same, to wish one
another a good year.

end the Herut Central
Committee voted for Shamir
by a 436 to 302 margin.
As Shamir prepared to take
over and hold together his
shaky cabinet, the post-Begin
era in Israeli politics began.
With the Israel Defense Forces
withdrawal from the Shouf
Mountains in Lebanon, and
their redeployment along the
Awali River, phase one of the
Lebanese war was over.
WHEN THE Israeli army
left the Shouf, fierce fighting
broke out between the
Christian and the Druze
militias. The Druze capture of
the entire area created tens of
thousands of Christian
refugees who fled to the
section of southern Lebanon
still held by Israeli forces. The
American Sixth Fleet, situated
off the cost of Lebanon,
shelled Syrian forces in

dangerous escalation in the
In the meantime, Yitzhak
Shamir under pressure from
members of the Likud
coalition's Liberal faction,
initiated discussions with
Shimon Peres of the Labor
Alignment aimed at creating a
national unity government.
In the United States, Sen.
Henry Jackson, a Washington
champion of Israel, suc-
cumbed to a massive heart
attack. The Senator was also
known for the famous 1972
Jackson Freedom of
Emigration Amendment
which linked Soviet Jewish
emigration with the granting
of most Favored Nation trade
status to the Soviet Union.
AS THE month began,
Israel's economic situation
worsened. Isreli bank shares,
for some years viewed as a safe
and lucrative investment, fell
drastically in value, forcing
the government to intervene to
support them. As the shekel
continued to be devaluded, a
rush on the dollar began as the
Israeli public showed signs of
economic insecurity.
The Shamir government
survived its first electoral test
with a 60-53 vote of con-
fidence in the Knesset. The
treasury struggled with the
bank shares crisis as it
prepared new economic plans.
As the country began to
experience a mood of calm,

The Haftorah for the

was purposely selected by the
rabbis as a way of challenging
the individual, at the begin-
ning of the New Year, not only
to examine and assess himself,
but also to seriously consider
the meaning of returning to
Eretz Yisrael. "He that
scattered Israel doth gather
him and keep him as a
shepherd does his flock."
Powerful images are put

encouragement to the Jews

IN OUR OWN lifetime, we
have witnessed the creation of
the State of Israel and the
ingathering of Jews from
many lands. Here in Israel, the
words of Jeremiah ring out on
Rosh Hashanah, stressing the
necessity to inculcate into
Israeli society the themes of
justice, mercy, of loving
kindness and truth, which are
the foundationstones of our
continued existence as Jews.
Israel must be ethically
sound and spiritually alert to
all the tests which a young
society must face. The
resounding call for Tzedek,
tzedek tirdof "justice,
justice shall you pursue,"
must ever be one of the
hallowed axioms of Israeli life.
Moreover, we say to our
creator in Jeremiah's words
"Turn thou me and I shall be
turned after that being
turned I repented."
On the second day of Rosh
Hashanah as you listen to the
Haftorah, be attentive to the
words of Jeremiah words of
comfort and hope, a call to
restoration which rang in the
ears of the Jewish people
throughout the centuries, a
restoration which has come to
fruition in our generation.

i iheme of Teshuva.

Steinsalz likes to cite the

that the link between
dand man is a hut, a string,

lunately, can be severed by

nSbi &" As a
nce- there is a
tremendous restlessness as
they seek to find their place."
Individuals seeking to define
their role in life gravitate
regularly to Jerusalem. Many
find their place in yeshivot.
Others, however, come to
study with Steinsalz in his
famous Thursday evening
class at his Shefa Institute on
Shlomzion HaMalka Street.
Those who participate are a
unique combination of old
timers, novices, men and
women. There is tremendous
interaction as he explains the
Talmudic text, weaving into it
his encyclopedic knowledge of
Halacha, Kaballah and
modern physics among other
Steinsalz, who is 47 years
old, married with three
children, stems from a home
in which the emphasis was on
socialistic Zionism with an
anti-religious bent. It is
therefore no surprise that he
read Marx and Lenin in
Hebrew before reading the
Talmud. At IS he rebelled,
went to a Yeshiva and took the
road into the world of
Talmud, a world in which
today he is a renowned master.
"TESHUVA, in this
modern age," Steinsalz points
out, "is the return of the
individual to the furnace from
which he was formed. It is a
return to his people from both
an historical and ethical
dimension." For Steinsalz,
Teshuva does not have just a
moral side to it there is also
a national return to one's
people and in time perhaps to
one's land.
In his book, Steinsalz
describes the initiation of the
process of Teshuva by relating
to the original Exodus from
Egypt. "When the Jewish
people got to the Red Sea," he
writes, "there was that
moment of doubt and in-
decision, when everything was
halted in its tracks. Then
Nachshon ben Aminadav
jumped into the water and the
rest followed. In the process of
beginning Teshuva," Steinsalz
stresses, "there is that moment
of truth when the individual is
faced by a barrier impeding his
forward progress. He either
stops and has his security, or
he takes the plunge, en-
dangering himself but moving
At the start of the New
Year, each of us is in a sense
asked whether we are prepared
to make a change whether
we are prepared to enter into
the vital stream of Teshuva. If
we are ready to rise to that
challenge this year, we must
consider what Steinsalz has
demonstrated. Only we can
take that leap of faith; only we
can effect that change and
make Teshuva a realiiv

The Broader Aspect of Rosh Hashanah
26, at dusk, Jews around the
world will gather in their
respective houses of worship
to usher in the New Year 5745.
This initial Rosh Hashanah
service will also inaugurate the
annual Ten Days of Penitence
the period assigned for
individual and collective
introspection and spiritual
inventory-taking. But this is
not all.
In Jewish tradition, Rosh
Hashanah commemorates the
creation of the world and is
the day when every human
being the centerpiece of
God's creation is summoned
before the celestial tribunal for
a scrutinizing audit of his or
her deeds of the past year.
Thus, the Jewish New Year,
above and beyond its distinctly
Jewish character, is also with
clearly universal overtones.
The purpose of Rosh
Hashanah then extends
beyond its obvious moral
implications but also serves as
a frame of reference for
broadening Judaism's vista of
the world. This is copiously
reflected in the High Holiday
liturgy, based on the socio-
ethical and moral teachings of
the prophets and rabbis of
Biblical and post-Biblical eras
A TELLING example of the
above is found in the Midrash
and Talmud Aboda Zara 22:
Before giving the Torah to
Israel, God offered it to the
other nations, but they refused
it, and when He did finally
give it to the Children of
Israel, He revealed it not in the
Promised Land but in the
extraterritorial Sinai desert
and simultaneously in the-then
70 existing languages so that
people of all nations should
have access to it.
But alongside this universal
approach, the rabbis issued a
clear note of caution not to go
overboard with it at the ex-
pense of the basic Judaic
principles, laws and customs
lest they fall through the
alluring cracks of assimilation
and eventual disintegration.
They therefore constantly
taught that the inseparability
of Israel and the Torah to be
the most reliable defense
against the intrusion of
foreign influences.
Admittedly, to negotiate
Mich a tightrope balancing act
is no easy task for Jewish proven beyond dispute that
commumties outside of Israel, even in the roller-coaster

The Broader Aspect
Continued from\Page 22-
existence of the Jewish people
for the last 1,900 years such a
judicious balance could be and
has actually been successfully
Spain of the 11th Century is
one such striking example.
Although the Jews in Spain
lived as the American Jews do
now, in peace and tranquiliiy.
not only did they not
assimilate into the Gentile
majority, but did one better
they emerged as one of the
best-organized and culturally
rich, super-productive Jewish
settlements in exile. The same
was true of the Eastern
European Jewries, notably
between the two World Wars.
And it can be safely stated that
were it not for the highly
motivated rank and file
Polish. Lithuanian, Rumanian
and Hungarian Jews
products of a wholesome
Jewish education there
could not possibly have arisen
the modern State of Israel.
What should not be lost
sight of is that both these
exemplary Jewries kept full
faith with Judaism without
yielding to the enticing, ex-
ternal attractions of foreign
cultures. Can the same be said
about contemporary
American Jewry?
There is no denying the
hard fact that American Jews
are afflicted with a galloping
process of an eroding
assimilation. It isn't that
efforts are not being made to
alleviate this "iron in the fire"
problem, but no quick,
positive results can be ex-
pected from a community so
fragmented, which at best is
but a shoddy patchwork ot
organizations and sub-
organizations without any one
cmmon purpose tying them
The solution to this
dilemma is simple stated in the
Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur Musaf services: "May
all Thy children unite into one
fellowship to do Thy will with
a perfect heart."
