Federation Leaders Laud Israel
On 29th Year of Independence
By Allan E. Baer
President, Jewish Federation
Sen. Samuel L. Greenberg
UJA General Chairman
Irving L. Geisser
Executive Director. Jewish Federation
Our heartiest greetings go to Israels people on this twenty-
ninth anniversary of their free and independent statehood. They
stand as a model to peoples everywhere of what the free spirit
can achieve. Americans especially are encouraged by the sheer
ejit and bravery of this remarkable people.
Despite hostility, despite Arab terrorist attacks and political
sniping on the part of the Arab states and some in the Third
World, despite towering economic difficulties and at times
serious internal political overturns, Israel's people continue to
uphold the banner of freedom and continue to demonstrate the
vitality of humane and democratic ideals. Their doors remain
open to the homeless among the Jews, to the oppressed and
endangered among the Jews, to all who seek a new and better
I f the people of Israel have shown anything, it is not only that
they have an unquenchable will to live in dignity and freedom:
ihey have shown that with sacrifice, belief in each other.
remembrance of their past and an unshakeable attachment to
the Messianic faith of their fathers they go on living and
winning the future. We, for our part here in Fort Lauderdale.
through our Jewish Federation and our UJA campaign are
glad that we have had and continue to share a part in the still
unfolding saga of our splendid brothers and sisters of the State
of Israel. Mazel Tov. Am Yisrael Chai.

The debate on the role of
women in Conservative Judaism
goes on. In its last three issues,
the United Synagogue Review.
quarterly magazine of the United
Synagogue of America,
congregational representative of
Xmerica's 830 Conservative
congregations, has published
articles which discuss women in

presidents and even the possibil-
ity of women rabbis.
In the magazine's forthcoming
issue, to lie published later this
month. Rabbi Koherl (iordis.
Professor of Bible at the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, argues that Conser-

women's rights, is heading
steadily forward.

goal is especially significant

JFS Executive Lowenthal Retiring
"Our biggest problems in
Broward County deal with
older adults and single parent
"It's been exciting, worthwhile and fulfilling."
The words of Esther Lowenthal, executive
director of the Jewish Family Service of Broward
County, a constituent of the Jewish Federations
of South Broward and Fort Lauderdale, on the
eve of her retirement, after a social service career
spanning 40 years and 3,000 miles.
A graduate of Smith College, Lowenthal
originally wanted a business career.
"It was the depression and with thousands of
people looking for the job I wanted, it was dif-
ficult," she explained. "I finally took a position in
the personnel department of a large chain store in
the Midwest."
SINCE HER family was active in Jewish com-
munal affairs, she decided that communal work,
professionally, was a natural for her.
"I worked with the American Red Cross and
liked it. I felt, though, that in order to be a social
worker I should have a graduate degree, so I
enrolled in the University of Chicago and com-
pleted work for an M.A. in psychiatric family
counseling," she said.
Several positions in the social service field were
in Lowenthal's future. From Seattle, as director
of case work for the Jewish Family Service, she
moved to the JFS in Chicago, then to the United
Charities and finally came to South Florida 18
years ago as director of case work for the Jewish
Family Service in Miami.
AFTER TWO years with the Miami JFS, she
was asked to move into the JFS of Broward
County. "Services were not only limited in terms
of the Jewish community, at that time, but also
in terms of the whole Broward County area.
Resources were also lacking," she remembers.
"To try and develop this agency was to be one
of the most challenging professional oppor-

The Kaddish is one of the oldest prayers in
Jewish liturgy. It has been recited countless
numbers of times since Biblical days. In
ancient times the Kaddish was the prayer that
concluded a session of Torah study. However
in the Middle Ages it assumed special
significance as a mourner's prayer.Yet, in a
real sense it is not a prayer for the dead. is a prayer for the living. A moving
statement in praise of God and a plea for the
ultimate redemption and salvation of all
For the bereaved, the Kaddish is a very
personal expression honoring the soul of a
deceased parent or close relative. But at the
same time, it is a celebration of life, a pledge
to live on in the tradition of the parents and
the Jewish people.
In a time of grief, when the feeling of loss
is most acute, it becomes a true act of faith
and devotion to stand and say the words of
trust and praise expressed so beautifully
in the Kaddish.
Throughout our history, these words have
been the bond that has held us together
through times of joy and sadness as a People
and a Faith. K
It's what makes us Jews.

Israel Independence Day Message
UJA General Chairman
Twenty-nine years ago, as David Ben-Gurion
read the Declaration of Independence of the new
State of Israel, he declared: "We appeal to the
Jewish people throughout the Diaspora to rally
round the Jews of EreU Yisrael in the tasks of
immigration and upbuilding and to stand by
them in the great struggle for the realization of
the age-old dream the redemption of Israel."
Today, as Israel steps into the beginning of its
thirtieth year, we share the dream, and we will
rally again as we have for the last four decades
to continue the upbuilding of the people of
Israel. This is our heritage, it is our responsibility
. but it is no burden, rather it is our expression
of our Jewish lifeline an expression of faith in
' our earliest history when we were created as a
people, and it is our hope for the future when we
may be a people at peace throught the world.
For the UJA, this coming year is dedicated to
"30 Years of Partnership Around the Corner
and Around the World." We are. with the people
of Israel, full partners in the destiny of Jewish
life. One of our primary responsibilities in this
partnership is to establish in our communities
and in every Jewish home an awareness, a
consciousness, a mood, an understanding of our
So on the eve of Israel's thirtieth year, we can
take pride in our accomplishments the dream is
turning into a reality. But there is still much to be
done. You can help today you can give to the
life-supporting services of your Jewish
Federation. It's our anniversary and our gift
to ourselves.
Jewish Homes for Aged Study
Reveals Operating Cost Increase
NEW YORK A dramatic 20
percent increase in costs of
operating Jewish homes for the
aged throughout North America
is revealed in the new Yearbook
of Jewish Social Service,
published by the Community
Planning Department of the
Council of Jewish Federations
The Yearbook reveals that in
the last decade, due to new con-
struction and renovation, bed
capacity rose by 30 percent, while
admissions and residents under
care rose by 25 percent.
The median age of residents
has risen in the last 10 years from
81.2 to82.9.
LEVELS OF care vary from
state to state, but most homes
provide skilled nursing, inter-
mediate and domiciliary care. In
1974, 60 percent of beds were
allotted to skilled nursing care.
In the other categories, the per-
centages were 29 percent and five
percent respectively. Another six
percent were classified as
hospital beds.
The median degree of bed
utilization in 1974 as reported by
homes was 97.3 percent.
Medicaid rates of reimburse-
ment, a major source of operating
income in homes for the aged,
vary widely in different states
and in homes within a given
state. In New York State, reim-
bursement for skilled nursing
care the nation's highest
ranges from $46 to $71 per day.
In other areas, skilled nursing
home care is reimbursed at a per
diem rate of between $17 and $30.
AS IN THE past, government
payments provide the largest
source of operating income
amounting to two-thirds of total
operating budgets in the last two
years. Federation and United
Way allocations represented 4.4
percent of operating income in
1974 as against 10 percent a
decade ago.
Staffing patterns reveal
nursing staff comprising 51
percent of the total, house-
keeping and dietary staffs, 33
percent, administrative, profes-
sional and clerical, eight percent,

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdaie
Friday, April 29,1977
An Unwise Proposal
President Carter's proposal to abolish the Electoral
College and replace it with a direct popular vote for the
presidency would have a seriously harmful effect on the
political power of the Jewish community.
Superficially, it might be hard to dispute the so-called
one-man, one-vote argument. Carter noted that if a few
thousand votes had shifted against him last November in
two key states, he would still have won the majority of
votes but would have lost the presidency to Gerald Ford.
But for Jews and other minorities the change would
mean that they would lose their present political strength
which is due to their ability to help a candidate win the
popular vote in key states and thus provide him with all of
that state's electoral votes. This is especially true of Jews,
a greater proportion of whom vote in elections than do
other groups.
Jews make up only 2.9 percent of the United States
population, but in many large states they have a suf-
ficiently large enough number to make a difference in a
close contest. This is, of course, especially true in New
York, but also holds for such states as California, Florida,
Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts,
and New Jersey, among others.
It makes no difference whether there is such a thing
as a Jewish vote. The fact is that in recent years, more and
more Jews have made it clear that Jewish issues,
especially those concerning Israel, are of importance to
them in assessing a candidate. More important, can-
didates for the presidency have perceived that there is a
Jewish vote and have addressed themselves to issues they
felt was important to the Jewish community.
Zionism Issue Raised Again

Leah Rabin Gets Strong
Tongue-Lashing in Court
I^ah Rabin was fined IL '250,000
($27,200) by a Tel Aviv District
Court for the bank account she
and her husband. Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin, had kept in
Washington. DC. in violation of
Israel's currency laws. She was
given the option of paying the
fine or serving one year in jail.
Judge Dov Ix?vin, who heard
Mrs. Kabin plead guilty to the
charges, rejected a plea for
leniency from defense attorney
Moshe Alexandroni.
BOWEVER. he took into con-
sideration the fact that Rabin
was forced to resign as leader of
the Labor Party. He said for that
reason he was not imposing the
maximum penalty allowed by the
law which is a prison term of up
to three years and a fine three
times the amount of the illegal
currency holdings. The Kabin
account in a Washington bank
amounted to $21,101.12, in-
cluding interest.
Hut the judge did not spare
Mrs. Kabin a tongue-lashing. He
told her she had "used the ac-
count in deplorable ways," and
he could not give credence to her
claim that she was unaware that
she was doing anything wrong or
The prosecutor, Mrs. Victoria
Ostrovsky-Cohen, said that as
the wife of the Prime Minister,

conduct. Her crime was serious

As U.S. Sen. McGovem (D..
S.D.) cozies up closer and closer
to Cuba's Fidel Castro, and
college basketball teams meet
their Cuban counterparts in the
non-political arena of "sports-
manship," what are prospects for
the future? *
Well, neither McGovern nor
anybody else has it in mind, least
of all Castro, that the coming
U.S.-Cuban rapprochement
should end on the basketball
court or the baseball field, or
THE NAME of the game is
To the Point International
suggests that in proposing that
the United States and Cuba
should begin discussions on a
broad range of issues, American
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
has taken an important initial
step towards normalizing trade
relations between the two
But the size and number of the
economic and political problems
in the way of normalization
would seem to militate against
any immediate resumption of
direct trade.
VANCE'S call for discussions,
without preconditions, is an early
move in a growing campaign by
both countries to build up
contacts. The U.S. State Depart-
ment's authorization of a visit by
a South Dakota college basket-
ball team, though small in itself,
is seen as another sign of the
Carter administration's willing-
ness to increase exchanges with
America's main move to in-
dicate goodwill is the lifting in
recent weeks of the ban on travel
by Americans to Cuba.
An even greater gesture would
be the lifting of the ban on the
sale of food and medicines to
Cuba, and some sources indicate
that the Carter administration is
close to making such a move.
On the Cuban side, Havana
could signal its intention to get to
grips with the problem by
reversing last October's decision
to let the anti-hijacking agree-
ment between the two countries
lapse, as has already occurred on
Apr. 15.
BUT THE real impetus toward
normalization will come from
both countries' desire to lessen
Cuba's economic and political
dependence on the Soviet Union.
The Cuban economy is re-
ported in some difficulty as a
result of the slump in the world
market price of sugar, which
accounts for about 80 percent of
its foreign exchange earnings.
Cuba is having trouble paying for
imports of essential items from
the West. In January, for
example, it was forced to ask the
Japanese Government to post-
pone for 12 months the shipment
of some $150 million in Japanese
industrial equipment, steel
products and textiles earmarked
for Cuba.
CASTRO is said to hope that
the resumption of trade ties with
the US. will enable Cuba to
rebuild its depleted foreign
exchange reserves, something he
cannot do through increased
trade with the Soviet bloc, which
ships most of its goods under
barter agreements with Cuba.
Washington for its part wants
some movement from Cuba on
claims worh $1.8 billion made by
American citizens and cor-
porations against the Castro
government resulting from the
nationalizations that occurred
after Castro took over in 1959. In
addition, the U.S. government
claims it is owed $150 million for
property confiscated by the
Castro regime.
The biggest private claimants
include Boise Cascade, ITT,
Exxon, Texaco, four sugar com-
panies North American,
United Brands, West Indies and
Amstar and Moa Bay Mining,
which was once owned by the
Freeport Minerals Corp.
CUBA, too, has claims
amounting to some $60 million
for assets frozen by the American
government since the revolution.
Although they are still pro-
hibited from conducting any sort
of business between the U.S. and
Cuba, American companies have
been actively exploring the
Cuban market with an eye
toward its future potential. In
the last year some 15 companies
have visited Cuba through Almar
Associates to discuss future
trade possibilities.
Electoral College and the Jews
Friday, April 29, 1977
Volume 6
Number 9
In the lexicon of Jewish humor
there are the ones which tie in the
seemingly riduculous with our
fate. Such as: "The elephant and
the Jewish question;" or,
"They're killing bicycle riders
and Jews what have they got
against bicycle riders?"
Not so funny, if on the surface
equally implausible, is that the
latest campaign for reform of our
process of electing Presidents by
substituting direct popular
election for the Electoral College
will have an adverse effect on
American Jews. To believe that
less than 3 percent of the
population can seriously affect
the outcome of such elections
would appear to be another one of
those outrageous combinations,
but it really isn't. So now we
have The Electoral College and
the Jewish Question.
A QUICK summary of the
situation as it exists today and
I emphasize today will give
some idea of why the ridiculous
should be, from several points of
view, of serious Jewish concern.
Those states in which Jews are
concentrated the most hold 30
percent of the total votes in the
Electoral College.
When one measures the
possible impact of the
traditionally solid Jewish vote for
the Democratic candidates in
such states as New York, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massa-
chusetts, Florida and California,
and the fact that this minority
could then tilt the entire electoral
vote of those states, then the
notion is not so ridiculous. It is a
fact which has given the
American Jew political clout he
would otherwise not have, given
our small percentage of the
already in the process of dis-
solution, as I have pointed out in
previous columns during the past
several years. As Jews move
from the Northeast to the Sun
Belt in greater number, as they
are spread out in the suburbs
rather than concentrated in the
great cities of America, their
influence is naturally diluted, not
only by the thinness of number
but by the fact that they even
take on the coloration of their
neighbors. More and more Jews
are actually voting Republican.
If you are not Jewish or
black, another minority bloc
which would be affected by the
proposed Constitutional amend-
ment the idea sounds good.
After all, we do favor the one
man (woman), one vote concept
and direct popular election of
Presidents would assure that
every vote counts equally.
There is always the fear that
the present system will find us
putting into office a President
who got fewer votes than his
opponent Jimmy Carter
almost lost in the Electoral
College what he won by a respec-
table margin in the popular vote.
According to Sen. Birch Bayh,
sponsor of the amendment, a
shift of only 10,000 votes in two
key states would have denied the
presidency to Carter despite his
popular vote majority.
THE LATE Alexander Bickel,
one of the great Constitutional
minds of this century, argued, I
think persuasively, that the
Electoral College provided an
important balance to our
American political system.
Although he died before the
election of Jimmy Carter, his
view that urban interests in the
big states have contended
against "interests that have a
more rural, nativist, and
Protestant orientation" is still a
valid one.
He believed that we can estab-
lish mathematically that modern
Presidents have been particularly
sensitive to urban and minority
interests, more so than other
factions in their parties, because
they needed the big state, big
city votes.
This fact can be ignored only at
great risk to Jewish interests. As
Prof. Bickel pointed out, while
the demography of the United
States and politics will not neces-
sarily remain unaltered, the
nation becoming increasingly
urban, "(but) urban is a term
that can cover many ways of life;
the ethnic and racial composition
and the traditions and attitudes
of an urbanized Nebraska or
Georgia are still not those of New
York, Chicago or Cleveland."
The proposed reform "would
create a Presidency with little or
no incentive to act as a counter-
weight to Congress, and as a
particular spokesman for urban
and minority groups."
vital to minority rights, which
depends heavily on general
consent rather than just majority
will. It is at the same level of
concern which finds Jews bat-
tling for the principle of
separation of church and state,
for civil rights and civil liberties.
We should be aware that
abolishing the Electoral College
system not only is a threat to our
political power but may be a
threat to our future as first class
citizens in America.

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Rumania's Rabbi Rosen
Describes Earthquake
It was more like the end of the
world than an earthquake. This is
how Dr. Moses Rosen, Grand
Rabbi of Rumania, described the
earthquake that struck
Bucharest on Friday evening,
March 4.
Speaking at a press conference
in the New York offices of the
American Jewish Joint Dis-
tribution Committee, Rabbi
Rosen brought greetings from
the Jewish community of
Rumania and expressed thanks
to the Jews of the United States
for the prompt messages of soli-
darity and generous offers of
help, including a contribution by
the JDC of $30,000 for general
earthquake relief.
He was especially grateful for
the help given by the Joint
Distribution Committee. The
JDC spends more than $3 million
annually on health, welfare and
other programs aiding some
16,000 of Rumania's 45,000
Jews. Funds raised by the UJA
campaign of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale go in part to help
finance JDC programs in
Rumania. Israel and elsewhere.
THE TOTAL number killed in
the earthquake was about 1,500,
Rabbi Rosen reported. Of these
about 125 were Jews. Another
dozen or so are missing and
presumed dead. Several hundred
more were injured.
"Jews make up only three
tenths to four tenths of one
percent of the total population,"
Rabbi Rosen said "yet they con-
stituted about 9 percent of the
victims. This was due to the
high concentration of Jews in the
center of Bucharest where the
earthquake damage was
In addition to being the
spiritual leader of Rumania's
Jews, Rabbi Rosen is president of
the Federation of Rumanian
Jewish Communities and is also a

Rabbi Rosen and his wife were
unharmed although his apart-
ment was damaged. Stepping out
of his house after the tremors had
subsided he found the city in
complete darkness and covered
with dense clouds of white dust.
Around his home, within a
diameter of 100 meters, he saw
six buildings totally destroyed.
As an example of the extensive
damage, Rabbi Rosen reported
more than 9,000 tombstones were
destroyed in Bucharest alone and
more than 11,000 in cemeteries in
the provinces. Tens of thousands
of people were homeless, among
them many Jews. Some, he said,
were afraid to return to their
homes and slept out of doors
despite the intense cold.
OF JDC'S ROLE in Rumania.
Rabbi Rosen said "it is not only a
matter of help but of survival."
Letter to the Editor
Condo Seder is
Broward 'First'
EDITOR: The Jewish Floridian:
Our condominium in Pompano
Beach, the Century Plaza, held a
community seder on Sunday,
April 3 in the condo recreation
The seder was attended by
almost 100 percent of the Jews
living at Century Plaza 39
adults. The services were most
ably conducted by Mr. Jack
Witkof, a resident of Century
Plaza. The strictly Kosher meal
was a catered affair. Everyone
seemed pleased and a good time
was had by all.
Several of the guests had not
attended a seder in many years
and almost all voiced the hope
that the seder rituals will become
an annual affair.
In my opinion, this is a first for
Broward County and should be of
interest to you and your many
The person that instigated and
sparked interest in the seder is
Mrs. Irving (Harriet) Kolman.
She did a magnificent job and
was ably assisted by Mrs. Sam

Friday, April 29, 1977
Race Heating Up Vigorously
election race began officially at 10
p.m.. Apr. 12, when the heavy-
carved wrought iron gates of the
Knesset swung shut and
Supreme Court Justice Eliahu
Many, chairman of the elections
committee, announced that
registration had ended.
By that moment, 23 lists, 10
old and 13 of them new, had
registered and paid their IL
40,000 deposits There were
scenes of high drama, tension,
and much comic relief at the
Knesset committee rooms as lists
large and small conducted last
minute squabbles right up to the
ten o'clock deadline.
AMONG THE lists are French
financier Samuel Flatto Sharon's
one-man party; a new breakaway
group headed by ex-Laborite
Mordechai Ben-Porat; and Ariel
Sharon's Shlomzion party
running alone after efforts to
splice it into the Likud list ran
aground April 12.
Sharon's all-day negotiations
with Likud broke down when
Liberal leader Simcha Ehrlich
delivered an ultimatum to his
Likud partner Herut's
Menachem Reigin, saying "either
Sharon or us."
Sharon later lashed out at
"Likud politicians, other than
Reigin himself, who are only
interested in themselves, not in
the greater good." Sharon had
reportedly demanded the 40th
through 45th spots on the Likud
election list for his movement,
with himself in the 45th place.
Likud, instead, offered Sharon
sixth place on the ticket with
other Shlomzion members
getting places 47, 49 and 51 on
the list.
THE LABOR Alignment itself
submitted its list right on the
deadline and observers were
interested to note that the expec-
tation that Golda Meir would
take the traditional place of
honor the 120th spot had
not materialized.
There was immediate
specualation that this reflected
her dissatisfaction with the fact
that Shimon Peres was elected
leader. She has never hidden her
lack of affection fo the Defense
Minister. The 120th place on
Likud's list went to veteran MK
and economic expert Dr.
Yohanan Baderof Herat.
Another Herat man who has
stepped down from active
Knesset life and takes a position
of honor at the end of the list was
Herat's Haim Landau, long-time
chief lieutenant of party leader
Meanchem Reigin.
RABBI Haim Druckmann,
head of the Or Etzion Yeshiva in
the Etzion block outside of
Jerusalem, was given the number
two spot on the National
Religious Party list in an ap-
parent effort to win support for
the NRP from the Gush Emunim
Druckmann, who is popular in
the various Orthodox circles, was
put on the list by the pressure of
the NRP's Young Guard led by
former Welfare Minister Zevulun
Hammer and MK Yehuda Ren
Meir. Ren Meir said with Druck-
mann on the list and former
Minister of Religious Affairs
Gideon Raphael off, "we can be
sure that Gush Emunim wil
support us."
Raphael, who was denied a
place on the list, lost a court
challenge last week when a court
refused to interfere in the party
Ben Meir's prediction appeared
to be realized when Rabbi Zvi
Yehuda Kook, considered the
religious advisor of Gush
Emunim, released a letter
saying, "Well, now that our
friend Rabbi Haim Druckmann is
on the NRP's Knesset list, it is
simply obvious that each one of
us must vote for the NRP and do
his utmost for its success in the
GIVING Druckmann che
number two spot meant that all
the other candidates, except for
former Interior Minister Yosef
Rurg who is number one, had to
move down one slot on the ticket.
This brought a brief protest from
Mrs. Sara Stern- Katan, the
representative of the NRP
women, who was 10th and finally
agreed to accept the 11th spot.
The Agudat Israel was also in
trouble until the very last
minute, with No. 3 man Shlomo
I.orinez threatening to run alone
because the Hasidic Rebbe of
Gur, Rabbi Simcha Runim Alter,
had announced to his followers
that they might, if they wished,
vote for Poalei Aguda which has
just broken away from Aguda
itself. In the event, I .urine/, with-
drew his threat.
High drama occured over
Mordechai Ren-Portat's failure
to provide a banker's draft for the
IL 40.000 as the regulations
provide. He sought to hand in his
personal check instead. Hearing
of his old friend's predicament
over the radio, Moshe Dayan im-
mediately phoned him at the
Knesset and urged him to borrow
the cash from East Jerusalem
antique dealers who are among
Dayan's Arab friends.

is pressure mounted from within
the Labor Party and the public
for Rabin to hand the reins of
government to someone else.
Rabin had decided earlier last
week to stay in office until the
next government is formed after
the May 17 elections. He based
that decision on the law which
forbids a minister to resign from
a caretaker regime. Although a
New Group Forms
loophole exists that would permit
him to step down, Rabin chose to
ignore it.
Yediot Achronot reported Apr.
14 that Rabin was planning to
take a leave of absence, a move
suggested by several Labor
Party ministers. Until the radio
announcement, there was no
comment from the Prime
Minister's office on the Yediot
Achronot report.
Rabin resigned two weeks ago
as leader of the Labor Party
because of the joint bank account
he and his wife kept in Washing-
ton, D.C., in violation of Israel's
currency laws. Peres was chosen
by the party to replace him at the

THERE ARE elements within

serves out his tenure. Former
Justice Minister Dov Joseph said
in a signed article in Maariv that
Rabin could legally take a
vacation and have another
minister run the government.
Although he would remain

would continue to be responsible

Monday. April 18, in the Oak-
land Park Shopping Plaza.
Located at 4850 W. Oakland
Park Blvd., adjacent to the
Horida Medical Center and
Lauderdale Lakes Hospital,
Solomon's formerly was the site
of Pumpernik's restaurant in
Lauderdale Lakes.
Roger Dauer, president of
Solomon's, began operating
Pumpernik's when the new
Sunrise Theater opened, and
decided to make the change in
name "to better reflect the food
and atmosphere which we intend
10 maintain."
The Solomon's operation will
include a VIP lounge serving
cocktails, a bake shop, a
itelicatessen, a banquet hall
seating up to 600 persons and a
catering service in addition to the
restaurant and coffee shop,
Dauer said.

the themes of Solomon's, which

On Israel's 29th Anniversary
President Ephraim Katzir offered
a prayer "for the peace of Jeru-
salem, for peace in the land and
in the world" in his Yom
Ha'atzmaut message issued here
for the occasion of the 29th
anniversary of Israel's inde-
pendence to be celebrated on
Thursday, Apr. 29.
"We trust that in this greatest
of aspirations we will have the
understanding of the democratic
countries with the United States
continuing to play its leading role
in the political processes aimed at
bringing peace to the Middle
East." the President's message
KATZIR observed that the
period since Israel declared itself
an independent State was one
fraught with problems, tension
and uncertainty throughout the
free world.
"Inflation, low economic
growth, labor unrest, accusations
of misconduct in high places,
instability in government, were
experienced in country after
country and in the public and
private life of Israel as well."
Katzir said. "Nor has Israel been
spared its own specific difficulties
in international relations, bonier
security, terrorist attack and
But he said that Israel had
much to take pride in and much
to he thankful for.
"IN THE context of Israel,
reaction to terrorism assumed
new dimensions." he said, noting
last year's "dazzling Entebbe
rescue raid." Nor are Israel's
qualities confined to the war
against terrorism. Katzir. a bio-
chemist, observed that Israel has
achieved "many a quiet victory
in the fields of science and in-
dustry, technology, education
and medicine. community
organization, art and culture."
He also referred to the "good
fence" on Israel's northern
border which during Lebanon's
"tragic struggle" brought
"healing, economic exchange and
even employment to many
hundreds of citizens'" in southern
Lebanon. He described the "good
fence" policy as an "experiment
in neighborliness" that he hoped
"may expand and flourish and
serve as an example for other
Upod fences. "
KATZIR spoke "sadly" of the
situation of Jews in the Soviet |
Union. He said "The need for the
lifeline between Israel and
Russian Jewry has been re-
emphasized by the intensification
of virulent anti-Semitic propa-
ganda within the Soviet Union'
today. In the face of this danger,
in the face of widespread peril*
and anxieties, we can only re-
dedk'nle ourselves to the fulfill-
ment of Israel's mission as
Jewish home and center and ol
Jerusalem's mission as Jewry's
spiritual center."
The President noted that
"Israel, indeed. Ix-came the
center of Jewish pilgrimage
during all of this year" in
response to the Jerusalem
solidarity conference in 1975. He
said "We remember with
gratification" the presence of
large groups and conventions
from virtually every free center
of the Jewish population."

Wending a Way Por Women
Continued from Page 1
Halacha, the Judaic law.
In a review of the changing role
of women in Jewish life and law
Rabbi Gordis argues, in effect,
not only that Conservative
Judaism has come a long way but
that it made changes even before
women's liberation was
He points out that back in the
1930s, the Rabbinical Assembly
Committee on Law and Stan-
dards grappled with the problem
of the agunah, or deserted wife.
WAYS AND means were
found, within the halacha, to free
her in certain circumstances so
that she could remarry. After
World War II, many women.
Orthodox and Conservative,
whose husbands were missing in
action were able to avail them-
selves of the new procedures and
save themselves from a life in
marital limbo.
Similarly, the rabbis, using
principles long established in
halacha. have successfully dealt
with the problem of recalcitrant
husbands who, while consenting
to a civil divorce, have refused to
consent to a get, or religious
Today such a marriage, even
when there are children, can be
annulled by a beth din, a court of
Jewish law, and the woman is
thereby free to remarry under
Jewish law.
that the most difficult unresolved
issue in the Conservative move-
ment today is the question of
ordination of female rabbis. Yet
he predicts that even here such a
move will eventually come about
because it "surely represents the
wave of the future."
As if to underscore this point,
the same issue of the magazine
contains several reactions to an
article in a previous issue by
Rabbi Jordan Ofseyer entitled,
"Why Not Women As Conser-
vative Rabbis?"
That article caused an un-
precedented number of letters to
the editor, letters whose senti-
ments ranged from "why have we
waited so long?" to expressions
of disagreement from men and
women who strongly oppose the

Or bring your own
notion of a female rabbi in the
Conservative Synagogue.
IT IS well-known that Conser-
vative Jews have long celebrated
a Bat Mit/.vah for girls similar to
the Bar Mitzvah for boys. While
there is not yet a ceremony
equivalent to a Brith, in-
dividuals, lay and rabbinic, have
begun to devise special services
of thanksgiving to mark the birth
of a girl. A service similar to
Pidyon Haben, redemption of the
firstborn, has been formulated by
some rabbis.
In 1973, the Rabbinical
Assembly Committee on Law
and Standards determined that it
is halachically permissible for
women to participate in
synagogue ritual as part of the
minyan, the quorum of ten per-
sons required for group prayer.
That same year, the United
Synagogue of America passed a
resolution which, while not
mandatory, encouraged rabbis
and their congregations to in-
clude women in such a ritual
Today, many synagogues
grant religious honors, such as
being called to the Torah, to
women and some include women
in the minyan. Rabbi Gordis
hails both changes as being in full
accord with Talmudic principle.
Rabbi Gordis believes "there
are increasing signs of a vital
concern for a living halacha in
Conservative Judaism" and that
this concern will lead to "equity
and justice on behalf of the fifty
percent of the Jewish population
still unenfranchised."

Bonn his first official visit.
Egypt's relations with the
West have steadily improved
since President Sadat ousted his
predecessor's pro-Soviet advisers
in May, 1971.
YET EGYPT'S finest hour
when, in the wake of the October,
1973, Yom Kippur War, Presi-
dent Sadat was a principal inter-
mediary in the Middle East
conflict and grew increasingly
important in Western eyes, is
fast receding into the dim and
distant past.
Does the West really need
President Sadat any longer?
This query is made without the
slightest intention of being
cynical. In foreign affairs dip-
lomatic routine is frequently at
loggerheads with common sense.
Since the Kissinger era, Euro-
pean diplomats have grown
accustomed to taking President
Sadat seriously as an opposite
number, but the Egyptian leader
will no longer be able to give a
policy of gradual improvements
in the Middle East situation that
extra nudge needed for it to gain
general acceptance.
The very idea is now past
history. Syria and Jordan are no
longer interested. Neither are the
If President Sadat were to
resume the status of a key dip-
lomatic figure in any new round
of Middle East talks it would no
doubt serve to boost his personal
prestige, but this does not neces-
sarily mean that the West should
try to ensure that the Egyptian
leader is chosen for the part.

Bonn's point of view too.
Six years ago he single-

the late President Nasser's power
apparatus, entirely without
outside assistance and by means
of a political tour de force lasting
several years.
FOR SOME time, this turn of
events proved difficult to an-'

close associates, recently edited a
volume of important source

industry, where they have made

In the United States, it is
estimated that out of six million
Jews, there are 200,000
Chasidim. Among the Rabbis of
the Guta Yidden, there are
different shades of opinion as to
their relationship to the State of
Israel. A good many of them
have already established
Yeshivot and settlements in the
State of Israel. As a result,
different names, based upon the
name of the Rabbis, coming from
the Ukraine or Poland, exist
throughout the State of Israel.
There is one extreme fanatic
Rebbi, that is the Satmar Rebbi,
named after a certain town in
Eastern Europe. This Satmar
Rebbi opposes the State of Israel.
He does not recognize the
existence of the State of Israel.
This is similar to the behavior of
the group known as the Guar-
dians of the City, in Hebrew
known as the Neturei Karta
which reside in Jerusalem.
Chasidim are more moderate, and
they "recognize" the existence of
the State of Israel; many of them
have settled in Israel because
they feel that they can live a more
complete Jewish life. Some of the
Yeshiva students during the Yom
Kippur War proved themselves
to be great heroes.

their extreme fanaticism
suggests that they are acting like
public anti-Semites.
According to recent reports,
publishing ads in the New York
Times and trying to negotiate
and write "love letters" to Yaair
Arafat makes them distasteful.
SOME go so far in their
fanaticism that they are opposed
to the Entebbe Rescue Mission
on the grounds that the military
operation was executed by non-
religious Jews. ..
But on one point all the dif-
ferent followers of the Rebbis
have something in common.
They do not practice birth control
or abortion, which is against
Jewish tradition.
So, they have large families
and they earnestly believe that
God provides the means to raise
the children beautifully.
THE SATMAR Rebbi is proud
of the fact that the number of his
own followers doubles itself every
ten years.
The Lubavitcher are the more
moderate, and they are doing
missionary work among the
Jews, which is unusual. They are
trying to find comrades among
the Jews to adhere to their way of
life, and surprisingly, they do
succeed in many instances.
The only remaining reservoir of
Jewish life is found in the Amer-
ican Jewish community. Insofar
as the hope of freeing the Soviet
Jews is concerned, this plan
turned out to be false. The latest
statistics show that the number
of Jews who emigrate on the
assumption that they are going
to Israel and change their mind
as soon as they get to Vienna is
astonishingly high.

tance organizations as to whether
we should spend sums of money
to help the refugees to emigrate
and settle outside of Israel,

The help that is given by the
Joint Distribution Committee
and HIAS comes from one major
source, the generosity of
American Jews. Those of the
opinion that we shouldn't en-
courage the Jews who get visas
under false pretenses in order to
escape from the Soviet Union are
loudly voicing their views.
It seems to me that even more
stress must be put on the Jewish
population problem. There is a
lack of communication in this
issue within the Jewish com-
THERE is a certain national
instinct for survival among
young Jews. There is a pos- *
sibility that widespread publicity
on that subject could have a
positive effect on the future
young Jewish mothers.
The problem should be openly
and seriously discussed in
various forums, groups, and in
places of Jewish gathering.
If, by some kind of a miracle
the number of Chassidim among
the Jewish population is in-
creased to a million, then I would
go to my grave peacefully, being
sure of the Hemshech.
It is easy to pose the problem
of a declining Jewish population,
but it is something else to find a
solution. It seems to me that
there is not enough being done
and said about this problem.
THE SAME problem that the
American Jews are racing in the
process of assimilation and inter-
marriage is being experienced by
the Latin American and in the
European countries where their
numbers are diminishing.
The problem should be posed
more often in the hope that the
genius of the Jewish people will
find some solution to insure their
own survival.

tunities I ever had. We've been lucky to have had
a marvelous advisory committee, now the board
of directors. They are a group of laymen enor-
mously interested in developing the Jewish
Family Service and we couldn't have done it
without their hard work.
"In addition, the Jewish Federation of South
Broward, from the beginning, and now the
Jewish Federation of Fort Lauderdale have both
been generous with their financial allocations.
The United Way has also supported us from the
earliest years. Together, we've built the Jewish
Family Service into an agency needed and used
by members of this community," she said.
LOWENTHAL said the Jewish Family Service
is a family agency which serves all members of
the community regardless of economic class.
"Some people think that only the economically
deprived have problems," she noted. "This
couldn't be farther from the truth. Family
problems know no economic boundaries."
When Lowenthal first came to JFS. the agency
saw only 100 families per year. In 11 years, the
agency has grown to serve more than 2,500
families per year with a professional staff of sue.
There is also an internship program with Barry
College, providing several graduate students,
each semester, with practical experience in
dealing with social problems.
ACCORDING to Ixiwenthal, the JFS caseload
is comprised of various problems, dealing
primarily with marital difficulties and the
troubles of older adults.
"The biggest single problem among the elderly
is the feeling of loneliness, rejection and general
depression." she declared. "Many older adults
who retire here feel they are useless and are being
shelved, especially by their children. We try to
deal with these problems by suggesting alter-
natives to just silting in the hi-rise condominium
and being lonely." she said.
Marital difficulties and the problems of the
single parent with children are equally important
and prevalent, according to Lowenthal. "We've
experienced a marked rise in the single parent
family. We deal mostly with women who arc faced
with divorce and the financial responsibility of
raising the family. It's not easy for them, and
JFS tries to be an effective agent during the
transition period," she explained.
Ixwenthal feels the JFS of Broward County
has Iteen able to achieve such rapid and effective
growth because of "the board of directors who
"There is no doubt that our
growth and expansion is due
to an enormously interested
Board of Directors."
fought for expansion." In addition, she said that
she was fortunate to have been able to recruit a
loyal, dedicated and energetic staff.
