UJA Campaign Progress
INVERRARY: Two major events on succeeding evenings
marked the Inverrary campaign calendar.
The first, on Saturday, March 5, brought together just over
200 men and women for a gala dinner-dance in the Inverrary
Country Club that brought a "literal avalanche of gifts," ac-
cording to Chairman Harold Slater.
The evening also heard tributes to Dr. Vincent Spadola and
the late Casey Greene.
The Cl ibhoust at International Village the next evening saw
over 125 villagers outdo the record that was set the previous
year at a similar rally for UJA.
Honors here went to Albert Mars, presented to him on behalf
of the Federation by Aaron Koenig, cochairman of the Village
UJA. Charles Hill, campaign chairman, presided.
Inverrary, overall, "stands far and away" above any sums
raised there previously, according to Slater. The campaign is
continuing with what he said would be "a stepped up effort" to
reach the many in Inverrary who have yet to be recorded as UJA
givers "in this area."
His statement was amplified by Vic (iruman and Hob Taylor,
cochairmen of the Inverrary UJA, who stressed that "living
lure means giving here" even if one is resident in Inverrary for
only several months of the year.
PALM-AIRE: Dr. Sidney Jennes and Harry Sachs, cochair-
men of the 1977 I'alm-Airo United Jewish Appeal campaign,
have just announced favorable results to date.
In a joint report they made known that Palm-Aire has sur-
passed its 197fi totals. The cochairmen said they are looking to
achieve a significant new giving record this year" for the Palm-
\irc residents.

Over-the-Top Results Mark UJA
Drives Throughout Community
Each of the main North Broward areas
that make up the Greater Fort Lauderdale
community have accounted for more funds in
their UJA / Federation campaigns than ever
before. Sen. Samuel Greenberg, the cam-
paign general chairman, reported earlier this
week to the regular monthly meeting of the
Federation's board of directors.
Although some of these area drives are
ne;iring their end. he pointed out that most
arc still in their active stages. He said, in this
connection, that several hundred thousand
dollars are still in the balance from con-
tributors of prior years who have yet to make
their 1977 commitments.
SEN. GREENBERG predicted, however,
what he termed "a rousing success."
'I think 1977 is going to turn out to be our
best year yet for the UJA." he told the
Federation board.
The general chairman tempered his warm
picture of campaign success with a somber
reminder of spiraling costs for the funding of
UJA humanitarian programs in Israel,
F.urope. l>ehind the Iron Curtain and in Fort
"IT IS just costing more this year to help
Ihe needy and distressed than it cost last
year, whether it's an immigrant family in
Israel: Jews emigrating from the Soviet
Union; administering health programs in
Iran: financing our Jewish Community
Center or Jewish Family Service or any of
our other Federation programs here in Fort
Lauderdale." the Senator declared.
"As a matter of fact." he added, "without
tin- greater tunds we havebtwn raising. UJA
programs the world over would today be in
serious trouble. At that, there have been
some cutbacks.
Sen. Greenberg pointed out in the latter
connection that housing for immigrants, the
establishment of new settlements, youth care
programs, social services for newcomers and
high school education all of these in Israel
have experienced curtailments of one kind
or another.
HEADING THE list of over-the-top
campaign areas here are Woodlands, the
Gait, Point of Americas, Inverrary, Palm-
Aire, Century Village and Coral Springs,
with Women's Division campaigning also
running ahead of last year.
Sen. Greenberg reported that Woodlands
alone was just under the 1400,000 mark, and
will exceed it by the time all soliciting comes
to an end. The Woodlands campaign is under
the chairmanship of Hernie Libros.
The Point of Americas drive shows a total
so far of 8131,000 compared with SI21.0(H) in
1976. Milton Keiner is thechairman.
THE GALT UJA is showing a result to
date of nearly $220,000 as against a 8200.000
final result in 1976. Louis L. Perlman is
chairman of the Gait campaign.
Palm-Aire is past the 1155,000 mark with
campaigning still ongoing, as againsi a
result last year of nearly $146,000. The
campaign is headed by Dr. Sidney Jennes
and Harry Sachs.
Inverrary has so far produced in the
neighborhood of $70,000 compared with a
total result last year of $45.000.
CENTURY Village has come forward with
over $.'{6,000 to date as against a total last
year of $18,000. The campaign, under the
chairmanship of Irving Friedman and
cochaired by Evelyn Denner, is continuing.
Coral Springs shows $16,500 with its
campaign still going on as compared with
$8,600 in 1976. Buddy Himber is the
Many more area or neighbor hood cam-
paigns are either in full swing or about to get
started, Sen. Greenberg noted. Gathering
momentum are the campaigns in Margate-
Quad City, under the chairmanship of Israel
Kesnikoff, and fund-raising over a wide field
of condominiums from Pompano Beach to
Lauderdale Lakes to Lauderhill to Sunrit
A special meeting for area doctors will

How Political Struggle

Israel's political factions
have been concentrating on
internal matters during the

to develop coherent
positions on major do-

issues that will give the
voters a choice when they
go to the polls May 17.

Did I tell you about the
frightening night I just spent
recently? As usual the Sabbath
candles were burning when I
went to bed. They looked so
beautiful, the glow casting
shadows on the dark wells and I
felt very secure knowing it was
Shabbas. But in the middle of the
night the dog began to cry. I
woke up and knew something
was wrong. Sure enough, the
candles had started a fire.
Another minute and the flames
would have reached the cabinets.
It was an awful feeling to realize
that even the warmth of those
special candles could make a
disaster, so be sure to be careful
where you place your candles!
If it weren't for the dog (who
was in my home on a "trial basis"
by the way, and is now a full-
fledged member of the household)
I don't know what the outcome
could have been!

What's Ahead in Kay?
In our view, the paper-thin victory Prime Minister
Rabin scored over Defense Minister Peres as candidate of
their party in the May election does not speak poorly for
Rabin Nor does it suggest an overwhelming show of
strength in the cause of Peres, whom some now see as a
future troublemaker
Unquestionably, Rabin is the candidate, and those
who support the party ought to support the candidate
It is wrong to draw parallels between the Israeli and
the American political experience. In America, for
example, the likelihood of a party bolt is generally small
although they have occurred in the past and may well
Occur in the f jre. Unfortunately, this is not how things "
I0MH to work in Israeli politics.
In Israel, there are already announcements of party
defections, and what thi^ may do ia to strengthen the hand
of the Likud's Menachem Beigin or even Yigal Yadin. who
has come out of academic retirement to make a try for the
premiership on his own.
In the end. then. Israeli'- will not necessarily be
choosing between Rabin and. for example. Beigin. They
will be choosing against Rabin, and that may well lead to
some unhappy political results.
End to Arms Race
President Carter, since his inauguration, has set out
to prove he is serious about his intention to work for a
reduction of arms throughout the world, including the
highly-volatile Middle East The first demonstration of
this came when the White House announced Feb. 17 that
the United States will not sell the deadly CBU-72 con-
cussion bomb to Israel or anyone else.
The concussion bomb, one of the most lethal non-
nuclear American weapons, along with three other
weapons, was promised to Israel last October by President
Some observers saw the promise as an answer to
charges by then-candidate Carter that the Ford
Administration was not providing Israel with weapons
needed for its security. Others noted that the U.S. has
refused to sell the bomb even to neighboring Canada.
The refusal to sell Israel the bomb does not mean that
Israel will not continue to receive the weapons it needs
from the United States. In fact, the Carter Administration
announced that Israel will get two of the other four
weapons Ford promised and that discussions will be held
on the third.
From this point of view, while the concussion bomb
would have been a nice addition to the Israeli arsenal it is
not essential. But there is a big "but" to all this
The Carter Administration's effort to reduce the arms
race in the Mideast depends on others agreeing to stop
supplying the area with weapons. Vice President Mondale
in his recent trip to West Kurope reportedly asked the
European countries to cooperate in this effort.
Equalizing Boycott Laws
One of the more spurious arguments ot those opposed
to Congressional efforts to limit the use of the Arab
boycott in the United States is that it would hurt United
States efforts to help the Arabs and Israel reach a peace
agreement. This argument was repeated time and time
again by business executives testifying before a Senate
Banking Subcommittee that was holding hearings on the
Williams-Proxmire and Stevenson bills aimed at com-
batting the boycott.
"It would be unfortunate indeed if the U.S. Congress
were to pass legislation directed specifically against the
Arab nations at a time when the executive branch of
government is seeking to reconcile opposing views," one
businessman said in testifying against the bills.
Nonsense. The Arab boycott against Israel is one of
(he issues that surely will be discussed in an overall
Middle East peace settlement. But meanwhile, the United
States cannot allow Arab nations to dictate the terms of
trade to American companies, especially when that in-
cludes not only discriminating against companies that
trade with Israel but also American Jews and Jewish-
owned firms. I

Carter had one trump card he did

Yet Coleman himself finally

Volume 6
I ~- '"
28 ADA R 5737
Number 6
If you haven't filed your in-
come tax return as yet, Yosher
has some sound advice for you.
"The first principle is that the
return must be filled out
honestly." That would seem to go
without saying, but as one
prepares to give the government
its due, there may be the tempta-
tion not to record all income,
"whether it could be easily traced
or not."
MOREOVER, "no deductions
may be claimed which are not
true"; for instance, "deducting
tuition as charity." This, we are
informed, may be considered in
the same light as "stealing,
chillul hashem, or making a false
statement. According to some
opinions, this would be a false
oath, in the full halachic sense of
that term."
This quite remarkable docu-
ment, prepared by Rabbi Ezra
Bick, has been issued by Yosher:
A Jewish Ethics Committee,
which was organized by Ortho-
dox Jewish professionals and
students as a reaction to scandals
in recent years which involved
some of the most prominent
Orthodox leaders and philan-
thropists in New York and ended
the promising careers of a
number of highly placed New
York politicians.
AS THE sordid stories were
revealed of nursing home mis-
treatment, Medicaid and tax
fraud, kickbacks to rabbis in
charge of Day Schools for helping
big business evade taxes, the
shock was obviously great but
the reaction so defensive that it
led the chairman of the new
Ethics Committee of the Rab-
binical Council of America to
declare sadly that "The Orthodox
have emphasized the ritual
aspect at the risk of the moral
and ethical aspect."
The Commission will be pub-
lishing philosophic and halachic
papers to direct its members'
concerns and sensitivity to areas
of ethical concern.
What could be explosive if it
ever comes to pass is the Com-
mission's mandate to study any
wrong-doing that comes to its
attention in the Jewish com-
munity and, if necessary, to take
an official stand.
STUDIES in the planning
stage will deal with the syna-
gogue's obligations to its own
employees, or a yeshiva's reports
to the government which may
exaggerate certain factors in
order to receive more funds.
More controversial and sensi-
tive would be in the area of the
law, where the question to be
raised is whether Orthodox
Jewish lawyers should defend
clients whom they know to be
guilty of the crime.
As an independent group,
although its chairperson is Rabbi
Saul Berman, chairman of Judaic
Studies department at Stern
College of Yeshiva University,
Yosher has taken on the assign-
ment of heightening the in-
dividual consciousness to those
everyday problems which
challenge not only the Jewish-
ness but the validity of many
established practices.
IT IS examining, for instance,
the legitimacy of kosher food
prices. For those who read the
article on the excesses of Bar
Mitzvah parties in last week's
Jewish Floridian with fascinated
horror, Yosher is taking a look at
the possibility for reinstituting
sumptuary laws so that com-
munities can limit the amount of
money one can or should
spend on such an event.
Just reading the paper on
Payment of Income Taxes:
Halachic Guidelines is a joy. I
learned again that there was
nothing new under the sun, even
when it comes to taxation. The
question was raised in the
Talmud in Nedarim and Baba
Bathra as to whether the
collection of taxes is stealing. The
decision is that it is not; it is
lawful. It therefore follows that
one must pay honestly.
BUT WHILE there is no
mitzvah in overpaying one's
taxes, the issur of underpaying is
more severe. The best advice
from Rabbi Bick is, when in
doubt, seek expert opinion, not
"wishful thinking buttressed by
some far-fetched kvetch.
All in all, a fine piece of work.

'Our Gifts Help Save Lives' *of Life Unveiled
Rabbi David Berent
Beth Israel Synagogue
Deerfield Beach
The reality of the tense
situation in the Middle East is
now upon us again. This should
belie false feelings of confidence
which are heard from time to time
in our community. When asked
. to make sacrificial contributions
* to the Federation and the Israel
Emergency Fund, some people
have answered, "It isn't really
needed peace is about to break
out. Every year they manu-
facture another emergency." Of
course we know that this isn't
true, and that peace isn't about ,
to "breakout."
What will prevent war from
breaking out? The Jerusalem
Post recently editorialized on the
subject. They concluded that
President Sadat agreed to
negotiate with Israel only
because of Israeli strength. Had
it not been for her firm and
deliberate stand, the Arabs
would not have been forced to
move towards even talking of a
peace treaty.
We helped make Israel as
strong as she is by our gifts.
And now her crisis is even
greater than it was in 1967
because she can only now buy the
arms from the United States to
match those given to her enemies
by the Soviet Union.
Israel allocates 90 percent of
her budget for defense. Yet she
must also carry on her domestic
programs health, education
and all the rest if she is to
survive as a country. She can
only do this with our gifts.
Israelis are sacrificing
giving up not only their lives, but
also paying the highest taxes of
To your health,
to happiness,
and, to peace.

any people. You don't hear them
complain they want to live!
We must sacrifice as well. It is
more vital than ever that we do
that little more than we think we
can afford. It is vital that, at this
point in our three-thousand-year
history, we do not let our
brethren down when they need
our support.
We are asked to double our
gifts. Gertrude and I have. We
know that many in our congre-
gation and our community, which
gives dedicated leadership to the
UJA and workers to our Feder-
ation, will do likewise.
For the Israelis, it is literally
"double or nothing," for without
our help they cannot face the
future with hope.
At this Passover Season which
commemorates Israel's liberation
from Egyptian bondage, we join
in the prayer of a new liberation
for Israel from its fears of a new
war and that "peace breaks out."
But in the meantime, we can help
prevent a new war and help save
lives by our gifts.

Tlir Inverrary UJA dinner-dunce on Saturday,
March 5 in the Inverrary Country Club was marked
by two tributes. One uas in honor of Dr. Vincent
Spadola. The other uas in memory of Casey Greene.
Both were cited by Harold Slater, the chairman of
the Inverrary UJA, who presided. Sitting'on either
side of him as he spoke were Dr. and Mrs. (Anne)
Spadola. and Mrs. Casey (Sylvia) Greene. Sitting at
nearby dinner tables were five of Dr. Spadola's
immediate family and a daughter of Casey and
Sylvia Greene, Mrs. David Klein. Here are the texts
of both tributes as delivered by Harold Slater:
"It's my very special privilege to perform a
welcome and happy task and that is to convey to
Dr. Vincent Spodola the greetings and respect of the
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale, and
the UJA, as this evening's guest of honor.
'What Vince Spadola ismost

"There may be some of you who don't know who
Dr. Spadola is but I doubt it. Some of you know
him as a golfer; others know him as an ever-smiling
and courteous man who is the epitome of the gentle
man. Doc Spadola is surely all of that and more.
We have described him also as a humanitarian. Yes
- he's that also. What Vince Spadola is most of
all is a man of God a man of pure goodness a
man I truly believe was created to be an example to
all of us of what a decent human being should be.

Slater's tribute to Casey Greene was as follows:

solemn man. He was a happy man. He was an en-

good reasons for that is that he was married to

Prof. Yigal Yadin's New
Democratic Movement for
Change, which some political
pundits believe will give Labor
its most serious opposition on
Election Day, has defined the
terms under which it would join a
coalition government with either
Labor or Likud.
THE DRAMATIC focus is on
Labor, the biggest party, which
head.> the caretaker government.
Its convention chose to retain
Rabin as a leader, but only by the
barest of margins. It went on to
adopt a controversial platform
plank by an equally slim margin,
emphasizing that on the issues of
leadership and foreign policy, the
Labor Party is split down the
It has, in fact, coalesced from
three factions Mapai, RAFI
and Achdut Haavod into two:
the Rabin camp and the Peres
The fact that the incumbent
Rabin could muster only a 41-
vote margin (out of some 2,800
ballots cast) to edge out Peres
was symptomatic of a dangerous
cleavage that could come apart
before Election Day.
Rabin and his followers are
doing their utmost to avoid a
split and the Peres backers are
taking full advantage of their
strong position.
WHEN THE convention
reconvened last week, after its
climactic vote, the Peres camp
demanded equal representation
with the Rabin faction on all
parties' bodies, on the Knesset
list, in the next Cabinet and in
such Labor-dominated institu-
tions as the Jewish Agency, the
Histadrut Executive and the
various local workers' councils.
They are also insisting that

was given 50 percent of the dele-
gates appointed by the
nominating committee which put
them on an equal basis with the
Rabin group. They appeared to
be satisfied.
Nonetheless, Peres warned
that he would protect his sup-
porters from possible reprisals for
having backed him against
He implied that he would
refuse to stand for the Knesset on
the Labor list or participate in
the next government unless
Knesset seats were assured for
representatives of the younger
generation and women and unless

Gad Yaacobi, Abba Eban and
Yitzhak Navon.
ONE PERES backer
demanded that Rabin retain
Peres as Defense Minister in the
next government and award him
the additional post of Deputy
Premier, now held by Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon.
The almost 50-50 split over the
party platform plank stating
Israel's readiness for territorial
concessions in "all sectors" has
alienated former Defense Min-
ister Moshe Dayan. Dayan, who
led the opposition to the plank,
said after its adoption that he
could not campaign for Labor
under these circumstances.
Meanwhile, Rabin hopes to
include the ILP in the next
coalition government. He and
President Ephraim Katzir at-
tended the ILP convention
opening. Rabin expressed ap-
preciation for the ILP's co-
operation in the past and said he
looked forward to a continued
relationship in the future.
Barkai conceded however, that
the ILP was going through a
period of crisis, but he claimed it
was not united and strong.
Likud reportedly is rewriting

uch blunt statements as

Likud's position that the Judaea-
Samaria regions remain perma-
nently under Israel's
sovereignty, but political ob-
servers detect a certain softening

dicates a slight concession by the
militant Herat faction to the
more moderate liberals.
The Democratic Movement for
Change was thrown into an
uproar by a Washington Post
story claiming that Yadin had
said he would prefer to join a
coalition with Labor. A spokes-
man for the Movement said the
report was erroneous. He said the
party was prepared to join either
Labor or Likud on three con-

NEW YORK (JTA) The number of North Americans

According to statistics, 2,545 North Americans were processed >i
through the 16 offices of the Israel Aliya Center in the United *
States and Canada in 1976 compared to 2,357 in 1976.
A SPOKESMAN for the center pointed out that the
overall increase from North America was actually greater than
the eight percent indicated because these statistics reflected
only those North Americans who left for Israel with A-l im-
migrant visas (temporary resident) as a result of processing
through an Israel Aliya Center and included neither those who
immigrated without assistance nor those already in Israel as
students or tourists who changed their status to A-l.

assistance of the Israel Aliya Center increas 842 to 2,334.

Challenger Gives Up Studies for Political Arena
Yigal Yadin challenges the
political system in Israel by
creating a new party, the Demo-
cratic Movement.
What field of endeavor is open
to a world-famous archaeologist
the excavator of the ancient
city of Hazor, of Masada, and of
the Dead Sea caves with their
precious* scrolls who has
already been Chief of Staff of his
country's army? If that person is
Yigal Yadin, he runs for Prime
Yigal Yadin has a background
of organizational and speaking
skills to prepare him for his latest
endeavor. His career began with
the pre-statehood military force
the Haganah of which he
was director of the officers'
school and operations officer.
AS OPERATIONS officer he
was responsible for military oper-
ations during the 1948 War of
Independence. In 1949 Yadin
became Chief of Staff of the
Israel Defense Forces, continuing
in this post until 1952.
After 1952, he devoted himself
to archaeological work, receiving
his doctorate from the Hebrew
University in 1955. Yadin became
a popular archaeological lecturer,
known for an approach that joins
the history of the land to the
cultural history of the period.
A soldier-scholar, Yigal Yadin
possesses the necessary
credentials to seek high office.
Yet he waited almost twenty-five
years before entering politics. He
took this step because he is
disturbed at the "life style and
hypocrisy'' that have developed
in Israel.
We have been "disregarding,"
Yadin believes, "the values of
Zionism and ignoring the dangers
of war, the siege conditions
imposed on us and the wartime
economy as though they do not
concern us. We behave as if we
are living in a fool's paradise, as
if these threats do not exist."
YADIN SEES similarities
between the current situation and
the situation during the time of
Bar Kochba, the Jewish military
leader who led a revolt against
Rome. Bar Kochba had sent a
letter (unearthed by Yadin) to the
people of Ein Gedi, a place the
Romans had not yet reached, who
were living as if there was no
Roman threat.
"You live the good life, eating
and drinking with no concern for
the fighters," Bar Kochba had
written. Yadin adds that Bar
Kochba "could well tell us the
same thing today, perhaps even
more forcibly."
Stating that the quality of life
in Israel has declined, Yadin
points to other problems facing
the country. A major concern is
how to turn the sixty percent of
Israel known as the "second
Israel" the economically dis-
advantaged into productive
and satisfied citizens.
MANY ARE dissatisfied,
feeling that Ashkenazi
(Kuropean) Jews have most of
the advantages, and that the
political and economic system
perpetuates this situation. The
founding of the State of Israel
was not the end of Zionism's
task, says Yadin. "The main
objective of Zionism is only
beginning to be fulfilled."
According to Yadin, the
solution of Israel's domestic
problems requires a change in the
present system of coalition
government. "On the face of it we
are the most democratic country
in the world. But it is a false
democracy. It is the rule of the
minority over the majority.
"Only in Israel is a whole
country the constituency,"
following the tradition of Jewish
communal structure in the
Diaspora before the creation of
the Jewish State. (The 120
Knesset members are elected on
the basis of their parties' per-
centages of the national vote,
rather than on the basis of
regional elections.)
THE SYSTEM "invites
separation rather than
unification it invites small
parties. No one can form a
government," resulting in a
coalition government.
The main areas of power, such
as defense and the treasury, are
retained by the largest coalition
partner and the rest, such as edu-
cation and welfare, are divided
among the other partners.
As a result, "the small parties
dictate if they don't get their
way, they leave the coalition.
That is why the minority rules,
and it is a false democracy." The
Israeli government, Yadin says,
is "not formed on a functional
basis" but on the basis of offering
certain ministries to certain
parties to keep them appeased.
IN PREVIOUS elections,
some parties, such as the Inde-
pendent Liberals, campaigned on
a program of changing the
electoral system. Once in office,
however, these programs were no
longer at the forefront of their
Yadin disagrees with Prime
Minister Rabin's statement that
the principal issue in the up-
coming elections will be that of
peace and war. "Regardless of
whether we are doves or hawks,
peace and war will not be
determined by Israel alone. But Personalities, and promises to be
what we may determine is change a potent force in the next elec-

re he would have become a star.
Well, Casey did become a star. His heart, his
|nd. his conscience, his spirit were of the first i
gnitude shining out in all directions whether it
is in business, in social life, in family life or in civic
|d community affairs. Take, for example, his ac-
/ities at Inverrary. He liked to play golf. He liked
entertain. He was active in B'nai B'rith. But he
among the first here to reach out to the Jewish
deration and the Federation was as new as
Iverrary was. It was Casey Greene who made the
\st major connection between Inverrary and the
JA. Already we had given him the title unof-
tial but real nonetheless: "Casey Greene, Inver-
try's Ambassador to the UJ A.'
I-"Well. Casey wasn't one for titles. He never took
|em seriously. What he did take seriously was
(ople in trouble and in need and he took very
Iriously the dangers and the problems that con-
anted Israel. Well I'm going to let you in on a
cret. Casey Greene knew the meaning of trouble
kd the meaning of danger. He faced it every day of
|s life for the last 13 years of his life. The remark-
!>le thing is that he still managed to radiate such
deer and charm and enthusiasm. How did he do it?
s a wonder to this day how he did it.
You see Casey had leukemia. He suffered with
for 13 years. For 13 years he lived partly on drugs
) arrest the spread of the disease, and the pain of it.
Je kept it all to himself. Only one other person knew
|is affliction and that was his wife. She kept his
ecret. And together, they presented a face to the
w>rld that made people happy and inspired
leople to share their joys and concerns. Again, one
ponders how they did it considering that they
had also lost one of their two girls, a daughter. The
|jther girl Casey's other daughter, Mrs. David
'lein is in this room this evening.
"Casey Greene was a New York boy. He was born
in Brooklyn. He went to and was graduated from the
Hiuh School of Commerce. He went to and was
graduated from Fordham University. He went to
and graduated from Brooklyn Law School. He and
Sylvia were married for 39 years. It was the happiest
of marriages despite the tragedies, despite the
killer disease that ravaged Casey's body.
"How did this nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn
come to be called Casey? Well, he started out in life
not as Casey but as Casrial a Hebrew name that
means "God's Crown." Isn't that wonderful? God's
Crown surely sat on this man's head all his life long.
He was named in honor of his great grandfather,
who had been a rabbi. You might say he was Casrial
Greene the Second or the Seventeenth or the
Seventieth. You know, we Jews go back a long time.
"When Casrial Greene entered first grade, the
school registrar couldn't understand or spell the
name Casrial. She solved her problem by dubbing
young Casrial as Casey and Casey it remained for
the rest of his life.
"Casey Greene had a number of great loves. He
loved his dear wife. He loved his children. He loved
the city of his birth. He loved his country. He loved
the Jewish people. He loved humanity. He was a
wonderful man one of the fine spirits who crossed
our path who illuminated our lives. As we say in
ultimate tribute and remembrance: His Name is for
"I call now upon you. Sylvia, and on you Bob
Taylor, to stand here with me. Sylvia Bob Taylor
has something for you. Bob." Slater said.
"Sylvia. I'm honored to be able to make this
presentation to you. It states as follows: 'Casey

Zev Bufman:
Portrait Of A Man In Search
NEW ORLEANS city officials sent out a recent
urgent call for information. How could they make
their new Theatre for the Performing Arts a success?
South Florida impresario Zev Bufman responded
to their pleas for instruction with what surely
seemed like irrelevancies to them.
"How large is the Jewish population of New
Orleans?" he asked. "How many synagogues are
there in the community and its environs you hope to
THEY TOLD him. but could see no connection.
The relationship is simple enough, he said, talking
the other day in his office at the Miami Beach
Theatre for the Performing Arts.
"If, for example, there are 30,000 Jews living in
New Orleans, then a producer can rely on a mini-
mum of 7,500 subscribers. That, alone, is enough to
come close to guaranteeing a seasonal success."
To clarify what already seemed obvious, Bufman
added casually: "Half the audiences in Dade and
Broward Counties are Jewish."
BUFMAN OUGHT to know. The Miami Beach
Theatre and the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauder-
dale are his bailiwick. As to his success, both finan-
cially and artistically, there can be no question.
That doesn't mean 1 didn't have questions of my
own to ask. For example, why does an enfant
terrible, especially in the arts, pitch his tent in South
Florida, where audiences are so traditionally back-
ward and graceless?
That took Bufman to the beginning, his early
years at the Coconut Grove Playhouse, where he
may have been an enfant terrible then too, but did
not yet have the acclaim, financial or otherwise, to
opt for the sophisticated northern centers, like New
"THE GROVE was a completely spontaneous
hunch," he said, gut-feeling, a mood. I had little
business experience. I was a cub producer." That
was in 1962.
In swift succession, came the grand achievements
- Porgy and Bess (1964). Marat de Sade (1966).
In 1967. he signed Charlton Heston to do a run in
William Goldman's Man for All Seasons, and a year
later, he contracted for George C. Scott and Colleen
Dewhurst in Lion in Winter.
THEN, there were other great productions
Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are
Dead (also 1967), financial clinkers for sure, but
stellar and artistic achievements of which he is still
very proud.
By 1965, his Grove activities were so successful,
that he bought the theater outright. Five years later,
he sold it to movie actor Eddie Bracken for three
times what he had paid for it originally.
"I had to sell," he recalls. "It was too small
only 1,200 seats and physically the plant was
falling apart. You had to be afraid to walk on the
A YEAR later, Bracken went broke, but Bufman
was on to bigger and better things in Hollywood and
on Broadway.
Bufman, who today looks like a slim, salt-and-
pepper version of Eddie Fisher in the juvescence
of his glory, explained that "I keep testing myself. I
have a morbid fear that someday there will be no
more for me to learn."
And so, in Hollywood, he sees himself as having
gone to "school" to study film and video tape, "but
essentially, I'm a theater man." Despite his west
coast successes that saw him producing motion
pictures and television series, there was the yearning
to return to the theater.
HE COULD not forget his Broadway Marat de
Sade smash in 1966, which he had first tried out in
Coconut Grove that same year.
Or Your Own Thing in 1967, which won him a New
York Drama Critics Award. Or Spofford that same
year with Melvyn Douglas. Or Dustin Hoffman
whom he signed in 1968 for Jimmy Shine. Or .
Or .
So back he came to the theater.
To South Florida.
"WHY?" I asked him a second time, wondering
whether it was the lure of all those guaranteed
(Jewish) subscriptions again.
Well, by this time, for a change Miami Beach had
done something more than talk. By this time, Miami
Beach had actually recreated the Theatre for the
Performing Arts by gutting the old center at a cost
of $6 million.
Mainly what attracted Bufman was that the new
theater has 2,900 seats, compared to the Grove's
1,200, where he first began his career here. For the
first time, he would be able to produce some really
large-scale musicals.
"BESIDES," he says. "I had bought the Parker
Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale in 1967, which was
running beautifully all the time I was away in
California and New York, and so I had to keep
coming down to keep an eye on things anyway."
Currently, he has a five-year contract with the
Of Freedom
Beach theater, and a five-year option to renew.
Whether or not this explains the question why
South Florida for an obvious hotshot? remains
THE REALITIES involve greater problems.
"The audiences here," Bufman insists, "are not
much different from those in any ten other cities
with double the population." In this way, he appears
'/at Bufman with actress Angela Lansbury
Who appeared here twice last season.
to dispute my assertion that they are traditionally
backward and graceless.
"They are not deficient in taste," he declares. "It
is only a theory that they are way behind the great
artistic centers of the nation. It is untrue that they
are not a challenging audience."
On the other hand, Bufman readily confesses,
"We have to do a lot of work on them." The criticism
he voices, I have voiced myself for two decades and
more, particularly as it relates to that sacred if
somewhat tattered and milkless cow, the Miami
"THEY ARRIVE late and expect to be seated as
if the weren't late" that is to say, the hell with
everyone else who managed to make it on time and
now are being disturbed by callous indifference to
performer and listener alike.
"They leave hastily. They barely applaud the
company, and out they jam for the exits before the
curtain has even dropped."
Says Bufman: "It kills me. It kills our performers,
who find it insulting, ungracious, impolite." (I have
myself, in the past, used the words, barbaric,
ignorant, bulvanish.)
THE SAME problems, Bufman confesses, exist at
the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale, but over a
period of the last two years, with special reminder
inserts in the program booklets there, stories about
audience manners in the house organ that
goes to all subscribers at both the Miami Beach
Theatre and the Playhouse, and implementation of
threats not to seat late-comers, things have im-
proved markedly there.
"We encourage people," he said, "to stay and
stand and applaud."
What the Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away.
Praise must not preclude criticism. In Fort Lauder-
dale, some problems are more difficult than in
Miami, Bufman observes.
WHEN IT come to language, frank love scenes
(nudity) and certain sensitive themes, an obviously
more conservative group occasionally becomes
rebellious. "When we did Anderson's You Know I
Can'I Hear Yow When the Water's Running." which
is a frank study of male impotence, I though they'd
run us out of town."
Miami is more tolerant in these matters, but still
must solve the question of manners. Despite the
$8 million remodeling of the Beach Theatre, its
notoriously atrocious acoustics improved alomst not
at all, "and only now are they being brought up to
par," he explains.
"How could we criticize Miami Beach audiences
for their failures, when we had failures of our own. I
mean, why stand around and applaud when you
can't hear anything to begin with?
"BUT NOW that the acoustics are enormously
improved, Beach audiences will be hearing more
from us with increasing frequency about gracious-
ness. We'll be urging them to stay and stand and
applaud, just like we've been doing in Fort
What about the media critics in Miami?
"Nowhere as sophisticated as in the big cities,"
Bufman observes candidly. "There is a serious gap
here between most critics and their audiences."
"DOES THIS mean," I asked, "that critical
incompetence encourages the wrong things in the
public's taste?"
"The average audience in South Florida." he
observes, "is between 45 and 55 years of age. The
average critic is somewhere between 27 and 30."
This means that critics prefere everything
European and avant-garde, as if all such productions
were in and of themselves necessarily better.
THE AUDIENCE, on the other hand, goes for the
sentimental production, Americana such as Show-
boat and Shenandoah and, of course, Fiddler, all
three of which most critics here disliked, although
they went easy on Fiddler for obvious (Jewish)
Bufman's explanations for all this?
"Critics here are young and therefore inex-
perienced. They are unmarried and underpaid. When
a critic is underpaid, his mortality at any job is an
average I hree years before he eit her quits or looks tor
a supplementary job in TV, for example. Local
Critics don't have the Stability, the integrity, the
salaries of ;i ('live Barnes (New York Times). Dick
Watts (New York Post), or Walter Kerr (New York
"Its a mailer of simple economics. The younger
they are. the more they're inspired to be wise guvs
for effect."
MY QUESTION about South Florida remains un-
answered. But then, slowly, it emerges. "I keep
testing myself." Bufman repeats, and quietly it
dawns on me that this is an existential statement
having little to do with the theater necessarily,
mainly a notion about remaining free as a human
being (one of the things he disliked in Hollywood, he
claimed, was that he was not his own man: he
belonged to the studios).
"Suddenly, I want to fly a plane. Bringing down a
huge machine with a lot of knobs and dials is a
"Suddenly, I want to ski." (Skiing and flying are
classical symbols of man in flight from restraint. I
recall from somewhere.) "There is hardlv a month
that I don't take a week off for Aspen or Swit-
"SUDDENLY, the Parker Playhouse in Fort
Lauderdale is like the old Grove Theatre. It only
seats 1,200. You cant stage big musicals there either
not like you can now at the Beach Theatre.
"Let's face it. Audiences don't come out for the
intimate classics not Shakespeare or Moliere or
Jonson. It's musicals first, then comedies
Audiences love dramas but only after you make
them stumble into dramas."
Then what of the Parker Playhouse?
"THAT MEANS I'm already building a 2 900-
seat Theatre of the Performing Arts in Fort Lauder-
dale, complete with shopping center, which the
cogmcenti are calling the Opera House." He smiles
indulgently at their need to kid themselves.
Suddenly Impresario Bufman is Developer
Bufman. And the tests go on.
But this existential Bufman confession is ex-
ceptionally honest. Impresarios project pompous
aesthetic images much like doctors, who project
pompous medical images and don't want their
souls l ^ thC Ske,eton of their stock exchange

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Friday, March 18, 1977
Sara Goldstein
is responsible for three million people.
Sara thinks of the people of Israel millions of
Jews she's never met as part of her own family.
They live in the cities and border towns, immigrant
centers and universities of Israel.
Their needs are very much on Sara's mind.
Each day, they make tremendous sacrifices to keep o
2,000 year-old dream alive... they pay the highest
faxes in the world, live in overcrowded housing, face
the tension of holding off armies ren times their size.
It doesn't leave much for human needs. That's where
Sara comes in. Her job is to make the children of
Israel strong, to care for immigrants, to enable the
aged to live in dignity.
Sara takes her responsibility very seriously. So do the
millions of men, women and children who count on her help.
