"The dramatic increase in the

will say, "creates major new

are: the UJA campaign, the

Annual Meeting May 30th
The annual meeting of the Jewish Federation is open to the
entire community. There is no admission charge and no reser-
vations are necessary. The meeting will be marked by the
presentation of awards to men and women who served in the
UJA campaign, and to a number of others for distinctive ser-
vices both to the Federation and the Jewish community.
Jacob Brodzki, president of the Federation, will make his
annual report on the work of the Federation and its achieve-
ments, with a report also by Irving L. Geisser, the Federation's
executive director.
Brodzki expressed the hope that as many persons as
possible would attend the meeting, stating, "Every Jew in Fort
Lauderdale has a stake in the work and the programs of the
Jewish Federation. I'm hopeful that as many as possible will be
with us as we terminate this milestone year of our existence."
His reference to a "milestone year" was that the Federation is
rounding out its 10th year.
year. Charles Locke, the 1977-78
general campaign chairman, took
us over the $2 million hurdle and
merits the gratitude of every
friend of Israel and the Jewish
community. His service was one
of total commitment to the cause
of Israel and Rial Yisrael. The
many men and women who
served in the campaign as chair-
men and commiteemen, and the
staff of dedicated campaign pro-
fessionals, worked diligently and
with strong purpose. They are all
a credit to the Jewish Federation
and the community."
ON THE JCC: "This past year
saw the true flowering of the JCC
into an agency that has entered
the lives of thousands of men,
women and children. The Center
is well on its way to becoming the
most popular institution in the
Jewish community.''
On the Nutrition program:

peace between ourselves and our
neighbors. Despite all the dif-
ficulties, we believe that this
noble goal will be reached."
Begin said that Israel owes a
special debt and concern for the
Jews in the Soviet Union. "Their
return to Judaism, their plight
and their fight for the return to
the Land of Israel is, historically,
the second greatest event of our
time, after the renewal of our
independence," the Prime Min-
ister stated.
"WE MUST stand by them
and wage an incessant campaign
for their inalienable right to reach
the historic homeland of the
Jewish people."
Begin noted that there are
difficulties in many spheres of
Israeli life, "But if we remember
where we were and what we were
only one generation ago, in the
'30s and '40s, and how, with our
own initiative, sacrifice and
effort, we changed fundamentally
the situation of our people from
tragedy to triumph, we have
reason to believe that we shall
overcome all the obstacles and
guarantee the future of our
children's children."
Irving Geisser Resigns
From Federation Post
The man who has served for
the past six years as executive
director of the Jewish Federation
has resigned from the poet to
move on to other areas of Jewish
communal service.
Irving L. Geisser, the Fed-
eration's chief executive, will end
his tenure formally on June 30.
GEISSER, a 25-year veteran
of Jewish communal service,
came to Fort Lauderdale in
September, 1972, following a five-
year period as executive director
of the Jewish Federation of
Springfield, Mass. The Fed-
eration when he arrived here was
little more than a name, head-
quartered in a North Federal
Highway store. He and a sec-
retary were the only occupants as
full-time employees.
The largest single Federation
activity was its UJA campaign.
Just prior to his arrival, the
campaign raised a mere $300,000

According to Brodzki, Sen-
Chiles is opposed to the
"package" that includes sale of
sixty F-15 fighters to Saudi
Arabia, fifty F-5E's to Israel and
seventy-five F-16's to Israel.

The problem with stress is not how to get rid of it. It's a part of
life. And it's not even all bad. The real problem with stress is how to
recognize it and control it. So it doesn't control you.
Your body reacts to stressful situations with its nerves, glands and
hormones. And because these systems function throughout the body,
what affects them can affect other parts of your body that may be
vulnerable at the time.
That's why stress is a factor in many people's heart attacks,
hypertension, ulcers, asthma, possibly even cancers, and probably
many other ailments. That's also why, in these times of many stresses,
it's a major factor in increasingly costly health care.
You can recognize stress by heeding the warnings of your body
and emotions. Frustration. Anger. Hostilities that build up. Heavy
pressures of responsibility time demands and conflict. Headaches,
insomnia, muscle tension.
The key to handling stress is learning. Learning to air your
feelings in constructive ways, to train your body to relax, to repair a
lifestyle before you're faced with expensive medical repairs. You have
to learn what your stresses are and the best ways for,you to deal
with them.
But they must be dealt with.
Because the longer you remain in the
grip of stress, the more crushing and
costly- its effects.

The capacity turnout at the Parker Playhouse for
former Israel Foreign Minister Abba Eban. the large

place that Israel occupies in the hearts of the Jews of Fort
And we know by now that similar joyous celebrations
took place in cities all over the country. Our con-
gratulations go to the vigorous and visionary men and
women of the Jewish Community Center, and the Center's
staff, for giving us these splendid occasions and oppor-
tunities to express our love of Ereu Yisrael and our af-
fection, concern and soaring hope for the future of

President Jacob Brodzki
The man who has served this past year as president of
the Jewish Federation is stepping down. Elsewhere in
these pages are excerpts of a report that he will give to the
Federation's annual meeting on May 30. Judging by these
comments, it has been an active and rewarding year, not
only for the Federation but for Jacob Brodzki. Jacob, as
he came to be known to so many, decided to step down
after only one year: a second year of the presidency was
his for the asking.
For all of his deep involvement in the Federation s

functions of others, his relinquishing the office is a
measure of the man's innate modesty and an expression of
his realization that leadership has not only to be developed
but to be shared.
Jacob Brodzki is a totally committed Jew. That he
has lived to see this day is its own miracle, considering
that he and his brother. Ludwik. a one-time Federation
president in his own right were slave-laborers during
the Nazi occupation of Poland. Jacob Brodzki has served
the community here well. He was president of the Jewish

Well Done, Mr. Geisser
Irving L. Geisser is departing here after six years as
executive director of the Jewish Federation. Geisser is a
committed, hard-working, knowledgeable Jewish com-
munal professional. When he came here, the Federation
was a bare bones entity. He helped it grow and mature.
Today, the Federation is not only on the Fort Lauder-
dale map. but on the map of Jewish communities of
growing importano.. There are those who will suggest
that the Federation's growth was inevitable, in the light of
the mass ingress of Jews from other parts of the country
That is true. But nothing in life is automatic.
Irving Geisser helped give direction to that growth
He gave more. He gave of Jus spirit. He was often on the
job 12 hours a day. six days a week and seven days if
one were to count Saturday after sundown. He left his
mark, and it is on the organization and many of its people.
It is a mark of devotion to the cause of Israel and Jewish
We wish him the best, wherever he goes from here.
We shall be thinking of him. We shall remember him. As
he moves on. we say shalom. Irving, and well done.

The Unreality of Our Myths

Number 10
No one who has matured
beyond the age of let's ar-
bitrarily pick a number 12
years really believes that merit
alone determines our place in
school, society, work. It is part of
the American myth, however,
and if mythology makes us
happier, as Bullfinch suggests,
then let it be.
T. S. Eliot was not the first to
write that humankind cannot
bear much reality, nor Ortega y
Gasset the only one who believes
that the most difficult thing is to
flee from it.
AS WE await the Supreme

large circulation in this area)
have triggered these thoughts
that relate to myth and reality
"Gifts from Parents to Buy
Places in Professional Schools on
the Rise.'" reads the headline in
the Times of Sunday. Apr. 23.
Now I do not easily admit to
naivete. Last November, when I
wrote about Bakke. I said that
"The case is marred by the
specious argument whkh has
attracted the ignorant and the
prejudiced that merit,
meaning teat marks and grades,
should be the only determining
factors in entrance to college or
graduate school."
In the real world of admission

than that is considered: "Did

It doesn't hurt." Etc.
BUT IT didn't occur to me
then that, as the Times would
have it in the opening words
under the headline: The rising
dlmfnd of Americ*n youth for
the limited vacancies in medical
nd law schools appears to be
creating an increase in question

tinued, is the history of the past
30 years. "Our State was at-
tacked time and again. We had to
fight many battles in order to
maintain our independence. At
the same time, there waa a'
magnificent process of building
up the country, of turning desert
land into green pasture, of
bringing in the exiles of our
people from the four corners of
the world, of the most creative
work in every sphere of life."
It is equally true, Begin ob-
served, that for the last 30 years
"we have not enjoyed a single
day of peace. We embarked last
year, in the wake of ceaseless
previous efforts, on the road of
direct negotiations to establish
peace between ourselves and our
neighbors. Despite all the dif-
ficulties, we believe that this
noble goal will be reached."
BEGIN said that Israel owes a
special debt and concern for the
Jews in the Soviet Union. "Their
return to Judaism, their plight
and their fight for the return to
the Land of Israel is, historically,
the second greatest event of our
time, after the renewal of our
independence," the Prime Minis-
ter stated. "We must stand by
them and wage an incessant cam-
paign for their inalienable right
to reach the historic homeland of
the Jewish people."
Begin noted that there are
difficulties in many spheres of
Israeli life. "But if we remember
where we were and what we were
only one generation ago, in the
30s and in the 40a, and how, with
our own initiative, sacrifice and
effort, we changed fundamentally
the situation of our people from
tragedy to triumph, we have
reason to believe that we shall
overcome all the obstacles and
guarantee the future of our
children's children."
Israel Wins One, Loses One
TEL AVIV, (JTA) Israel
won a stunning surprise victory
in the Eurovision pop music
contest in Paris.
Jubilant fans of the disco
tempo swarmed into the streets
here singing and honking horns
to the rhythms of the winning
song Ah-Bah-Nee-Bee, with
music by Nurit Hirsch and lyrics
by Ehud Manor. It was the first
win by Israel since the contest
was established 23 years ago.
Moreover, Israel was the only
non-European country in the
competition this year.
BUT the occasion was marred
by news that the European
Football (soccer) Association has
rejected Israel's application for
membership. The foot-ballers
were gloomy and wondered to
which area of the globe Israel will
be assigned for the international
competition, since it has been
ousted from the Asian Games
and Football Association in
which the Arab states and China
constitute the majority.
Nevertheless, with a song in
their hearts, Israelis began pre-
parations to host next year's
Kurovision competition, an honor
that goes to the winning country.
The new hero is Izhar Cohen and
his troup of pop singers and
musicians who performed the
winning song before the jury at
the Palais des Congres in Paris.
It was televisioned world-wide
and made Cohen and his group
instant stars on Europe's pop
music scene as well as in Israel.
THE negative vote of the
Football Association was a bitter
pill. Sixteen countries supported
Israel's application, including
Sweden and West Germany. But
that was far short of the 25
majority needed. The Soviet-led
Communist bloc was opposed.
But Britain's abstention came as
a surprise and may have in-
fluenced other countries.
!oncentration Camp Inmates'
Play Performed in Israel
I An opera written by two inmates
[of the Theresienstadt con-
Lenlration camp during World
War II. which cost the authors
[their lives, had its first Israeli
[performance at the Jerusalem
[Theater recently by the National
[Opera of Holland. It was the
[main event of this year's spring
I festival in Jerusalem.
The history of the opera, titled
\Thv Emperor of Atlantis, goes
[back to the Holocaust years when
line Nazis maintained
Theresienstadt as a "show case"
where the inmates lived under
more or less humane conditions.
[This was primarily to impress
I representatives of the Inter-
national Red Cross who visited
| the place.
THE prisoners were allowed
[cultural activites and two of
them, Victor Ulmann, a musician
and Peter Caine, a painter, wrote.
and scored the opera. Its setting
was the mythical kingdom of
Atlantis ruled by a cruel tyrant.
Initially, the Germans ap-
proved of the production. When
they realized that it was an
allegorical depiction of the
horrors of the Nazi regime, they
banned the work and deported
the authors to Auschwitz from
where they never returned.
Ulmann managed to hide the
script with another prisoner.
It was discovered by accident
in a London attic three years ago.
Kerry Woodward, a BBC con-
ductor, reconstructed the opera
and Roda Levin, a television
director from the U.S., prepared
it tor production. The premier
performance, by the National
Opera of Holland, took place in
London in December, 1975.

F*or, Solomon Mikhoels. whom
Stalin had murdered in 1948.
Although extracts of the play
had previously been performed in
the West as well as in Poland.
this was the first time it had been
staged in its entirety. The
present production lasts about
two hours and several of the 36
actors are non-Jews, although
this is not apparent from their
fluent command of Yiddish.
Set in a small East European
shtetel, "Widerstand'
shows how the Jews reacted
when the leader of the Jewish
communal council, the Judenrat,
announces the deportation order
handed to him by the German
SS. They form into three groups
- one which wants to obey it
reluctantly, the second which
optimistically believes that there
will be fresh air and good food at
the labor camp, and the third and
smallest group which distrusts
the Nazi order and says they
must resist to the death.
The Yiddish Theater, which
has a staff of 120 people, shows
plays each week on Saturday,
Sunday and Monday. In the
summer, it is open nightly for a

Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan denied here that his
country was interfering in the
American political process in any
"I did not come here to lobby
or to question any decision made
by the U.S. government. Dayan
told reporters following his
meetings with Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance at the State
DAYAN'S statement was
apparently prompted by a
remark by White House Press
Secretary Jody Powell that
Washington, not Israel, will
determine what is in the best
interests of America-
Powell was speaking in con-
nection with the Admin-
istration's proposed aircraft sales
package for Israel. Egypt and
Saudi Arabia which Israel vig-
orously opposes.
The implication, according to
some press reports, was that the
Administration believes Israel is
exerting undue pressure to block
the package deal.
THE STATE Department
chief spokesman, Hodding
Carter, was asked if the Carter
Administration considered Israel
to be interfering in American
politics. He replied that he could
not speak for the entire Admin
istration but "I have heard no
such remark from the Secretary
of State."
The spokesman added that all
countries concerned in the air-
craft sales package Israel,
Egypt and Saudi Arabia have
made their views clear on the
matter We can hardly say to
any government that they should
not express a view on a matter
that deals with their security." he
Carter also cautioned reporters
that "no dramatic announcement
should be expected" from the
Dayan Vance talks, which he
described as part of the con-
tinuing process of seeking
progress toward peace in the
Middle East
DAYAN told reporters that his
discussions with Vance were
devoted entirely to Middle East
peace negotiations. Pressed by
reporters to repeat his statement
of Israel's views on the aircraft
package deal. Dayan said he bad
expressed himself on that subject
before leaving Tel Aviv far
However, when the newsmen
insisted. Dayan reiterated that
Israel will continue to oppose the
package and if the Admin-
istration "punishes us" by not
supplying Israel with planes, "at
shall accept the punishment bat
we will not change our view."
Dayan said he made the same
statement to a group of Senators,
whom he did not identify, at i
breakfast meeting devoted to the
aircraft oackage issue.

TEL AVIV (By Telephone
From Auschwitz! (JTAI -
Rain fell from leaden skies on a
crowd numbering in the
thousands from 16 countries as a
minister of the Polish govern-
ment cut a ribbon yesterday to
officially open the Jewish
Pavilion at the site of Auschwitz,
the Nazi death camp where at
least 2.5 million Jews perished
during World War II.
The pavilion is called Jewish
Martyrs History. It is a museum,
built on the site of former Block
27 of the death camp, containing
documents, photographs and
audio-visual material tracing the
step-by-step extermination of
Jews. It represents the first
official acknowledgement by the
Polish authorities in the 33 years
since World War 11 that the prin-
cipal victims of Auschwitz were
JANUS Wieczorek. the
minister in charge of veterans,
resistance and war memorials,
officiated at the dedication cere-
monies representing the Warsaw
government. He sought to
identify Poles and Jews as equal
victims of the Nazis. Jews and
Poles, he said, were the first, the
most devoted and most
courageous among those fighting
the Nazis, and it was they who
suffered the greatest casualties.
He accused the West of in-
difference to the plight of Jews
before and during the war.
A degree of cynicism prevails
in some Jewish circles over the
belated gesture by the Polish
government which, not too many
years ago, during the
regime, conducted an anti-Je
campaign of its own.

In Meeting With Begin
Carter Reaffirms U.S.
Ties to Israel 'Forever'
least outwardly, much has
changed in the six weeks
since Prime Minister
Menachem Begins visit
here. Last time, in no
uncertain terms, President
Carter told the Prime Min-
ister that the basis for con-
tinuing negotiations with
his "good friend," Egypt's
President Anwar Sadat,
would be Israel's total
withdrawal from all ter-
ritories captured in the
1967 war.
On Monday, with some
800 American Jewish
leaders gathered on the
South Lawn of the White
House, the President made
a U.S. commitment to
Israel "forever," and then
many of the leaders sang in
Hebrew, Am Yisrael Chat
The people of Israel
IN AN apparent reference to
Israel's 30th anniversary, Carter
told Begin that "For 30 years
we have stood at the side of the
proud and independent nation of
Israel. I can say without
reservation, as the President of
the United States of America,
that we will continue to do so not
Day an and Vance
Meetings End in No
Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan met with Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance at the State
Department, but the indications
are that Israel and the U.S. still
have not reached an agreement
on how to proceed on Middle
East peace negotiations.
Dayan emerged from the
meeting one hour later than
expected, saying only that the
Egyptian Israeli negotiations
"was the only subject" he
discussed with Vance.
DAYAN refused to repeat or
clarify the statement lie made
before he left Israel that Israel
will continue to oppose the Carter
Administration's proposed
aircraft sales package for Israel,
Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
The question was put to the
Foreign Minister because of
widespread reports that he had
said Israel would rather forego
the planes for itself rather than
see any delivered to Egypt and
Saudi Arabia.
What Dayan did say was:
'Should the American
Administration decide to punish
us and not supply us with the
planes, we shall have to absorb
the punishment and continue to
oppose the package deal."
DAYAN told reporters that he
has already said what he has to
say on the subject. When they
continued to press for
clarification, he ended the brief
press conference and walked off.
Dayan was accompanied by
the U.S. Ambassador to Israel,
Samuel Lewis, when he left
Vance's office, although normally
the Secretary of State escorts a
visitor after a meeting. Lewis
said that Vance was detained. He
said Dayan and Vance were in the
midst of talks on Mideast peace
just for another 30 years, but
In a clear reference to the
differences dividing the two
leaders, and the two nations.
Carter added: "We may from
time to time have our transient
differences with the leaders of
Israel as we do with leaders of
other countreis who are our close
friends and allies.
"But we will never waver from
our deep friendship and partner-
ship with Israel and our total,
absolute commitment to Israel's

One is to stress, at least subtly,
that it is Washington, not

the other is to shift the initial

THESE tactics were revealed
after a meeting between
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
and key members of the Senate

resulted in a stalemate. The
Senators indicated they were still
opposed to the sale as long as it is
