Still Another Middle East Summit
Editor's Note: This issue of "The Jewish Floridian"
was prepared daring Prime Minister Menachein
Begin's meetings with President Carter in Washington.
These meetings followed by a week similar meetings on
the Middle East situation between Carter and the
Egyptian President, Anwar Sadat.
From Jewish Telegraphic Agency
In Washington, President Carter and President
Sadat renewed their pledge to try to meet the so-called
target date" May 26 of the Camp David Accord of
reaching an agreement on Palestinian autonomy. Begin
suggested "marathon" daily meetings in Egypt for 20
days and then 20 days in Herzliya, Israel. Carter and
Sadat agreed to this arrangement. Begin said May 26
should be considered a "goal" to reach agreement, and
if not then, the talks will continue.
Last month in a talk to a convention of Americans
and Canadians in Israel held in Maalot near the
Lebanese border, Prime Minister Begin said that May
26 "is not a so-called deadline or ultimate date. If
proposals that contradict the Camp David Accord come
up, we shall continue to negotiate. Just as the
negotiations for the peace agreement with Egypt lasted
six months, not three (as indicated in the original Camp
David time limit), I am hopeful that with efforts
exerted we shall reach an agreement."
UJA Breaks Through Women's Division
$3 Million Barrier
At the White House state dinner in Sadat's honor,
Carter said: "It would be inconceivable to me that we
would let this promise of accords slip from our grasp
and end hopes and confidence for the aspirations of two
troubled peoples."
The pressure is on because of new developments
concerning Iran and militants holding 60 hostages in
the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. U.S., during the week,
broke diplomatic relations with Iran. This problem and
that of the Russians still holding Afghanistan subject
to the Soviets' military forces are motivations for
trying to achieve an accord on autonomy.
U.S. and Egyptian officials believe that if
negotiations go forward on the autonomy talk and
Egypt and Israel reach an agreement this "might en-
courage" the Palestinians, the Jordanians, the Saudis
and other moderates and Arabs to join the peace
Elects Officers, Board
A new level of giving to the
United Jewish Appeal was
reached this week when the
"mercury of contributions" broke
through the $3,000,000 barrier.
Now, more than ever in the 13-
year history of the Jewish Fed-
eration of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale, the Jewish community of
North Broward County "is one"
in its concern to provide human-
itarian aid for Jews in Israel and
other countries around the world,
and for the variety of services
and programs provided in North
Broward. The latter includes the
Kosher Nutrition project that
supplies 1,500 meals weekly to
the elderly, counseling through
the Jewish Family Service, rec-
reational and cultural programs
at the Jewish Community Center,
educational services through the
Central Agency for Jewish Edu-
cation and Federation's
educational director, rabbinic
services by the Federation's
director of the Chaplaincy Com-
mission, leadership development
and concern for community
But, it's not over yet, declared
Milton Keiner, Federation's
general chairman of the 1980
UJA Campaign, as he expressed
his appreciation to the several
thousand contributors who made
this achievement possible. He
said: "The more we give the more
we can send to Israel to help
immigration and absorption of
Jews into that country, to
provide housing for those im-
migrants, schools and nurseries
and opportunities to develop
employable skills."
The vice chairman of the UJA
campaign, Victor Gruman, said a
considerable number of pledge
cards is outstanding and
volunteers are making efforts, by
telephone, to reach them and also
Jewish "newcomers" to Broward
County who have not yet joined
the honor roll of UJA con-
An effort will be made to get
additional contributions so that
the thermometer's "mercury"
can continue to rise.

Fort Lauderdale Mission in 1977
Visited Misgav Am Kibbutz
Attacked by Terrorists
In 1977, the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale
sponsored a Mission to Israel.
The second day of the arrival of
the Floridians in Israel, the group
left its hotel in Safed. north of
Haifa, to travel by bus. passing
kibbutzim along the edge of the
Golan Heights. And then
heading for the Lebanon bor-
der ... let the diary of that
Mission, kept by Hazel Share-
now, take the next paragraph:
"We visited Kibbutz Misgav
Am right on the northern border.
This Kibbutz is 30 years old. We
were met by Pesach, General
Secretary of Misgav Am, who
took us on a long, uphill walk to
the very edge of the Lebanon bor-
der and warned us not to touch
the electrified barbed wire fence
which protects them. Bomb
shelters are built to take care of
the 90 children who live there.
Misgav Am has taken an active
part in three wars. They raise
cotton, apples, cows, have a tape
tactory, fish ponds, and sell
everything they produce ..."
On April 7, 1980. two and a
half years after the Federation's
Mission participants were told
about the "electrified barbed wire
fence." a mechanical failure made
the fence inoperative. And in the
dead of night, five Palestinians
broke through that fence and
attacked the nursery at Kibbutz
Misgav Am. Shmuel (Samil

kibbutz, was killed trying to head
off the terrorists. Also killed was
a child. Eyal Gluska. 2' years
old. and an Israeli soldier before

Prime Minsiter Begin said:
"Evil men who are bent on
destruction of Israel carried out
tnis barbaric crime. It is only a
warning to us as far as our future
security is concerned. We knew it
all the time. Now some others will
understand it better."

Vietnamese Happily Resettled
, -In America's rise to po*er and
prominence, it has been ridiculed
for its never ending open arms
policy toward the underdog. Yet,
mo9t of the people in America,
and their ancestors, worked hard
to get here. Most of the time they
left behind all their worldly
goods, as well as a language and
a way of life they understood.
Many risked their lives for
freedom and a chance to make a
life worth living.
As a result of such efforts, a
" Nation of many peoples has
emerged. It is the courage and
ideals of many different cultures
which continue to forge the
American way of life. Thus, what
is said to be our weakness, is
instead our inner strength.
Here is the story of one of the
families who gave up all to come
to America. The Ngo family
* surrendered all they owned to the
Communist government in
Vietnam when they announced
their desire to leave the country.
For 12 pieces of gold, nearly a
pound of the precious ore, they
bought passage on a 55-foot boat
in the South China Sea.
For 10 days and nights they
drifted on this boat with 250
others. Lying on top of one
another, to keep the boat from
lipping over, they rationed the
little food and water they had
concealed among themselves. At
last, with no provisions left and
illness rampant, they reached the
Chinese coast. There they
received food and water, but were
quarantined on the boat for 15
days. After two months of im-
prisonment and interrogation,
the Chinese government released
them, assured they were not

family at the Fort Lauderdale
>iternational Airport.
But the flight held no such
parties and assuming they would
be contacted, the group
dispersed. However, at 2:30 a.m.
that same night, the Ngos
arrived. Unable to speak any
English and with only a note
referring them to Jewish Family
Services, they were assisted by
Delta Airlines. A Delta employee,
Mr. Nguyen, came back to the
airport after his midnight relief,
and took the family home for the
night. The next day, Jewish

missing family at the front door
with bundles in hand.
Today Tho Duong Ngo, his
wife Nhung, her mother, and
their three young children reside
in Lauderhill, northwest Fort
Lauderdale. The baby, Binh. now
six months old, was yet to be
born when the Ngos were on their
perilous sea voyage for freedom.
Now she and her two brothers are
healthy and bright-eyed. But
Duong spoke of his thoughts
through an interpreter, My Paul,
saying, "It's like coming back
from the dead. We, except for the
children, still have nightmares of
the boat. But we are happy now,
not having to fear always of what
will happen next."
The JFS Social Worker, Ellen
Held, with the aid of Resettle-
ment Committee, said that the
agency assisted the family for
approximately three months,
introducing them to super-
markets and pharmacies to
supply their needs. Of Duong she
said", "He was ready to work as ot

family a little time to adjust to
their new environment and we

History Tells the Story
The Palestinian problem was caused by the
invading Arab states in 1948 encouraging Arabs to
leave what was then Palestine. The Arab states then
kept the Palestinians in refugee camps in order to use
them as political weapons against Israel. Now that
the Palestinians have dismembered Lebanon and are
a threat to the stability of the feudal and oil-rich
regimes in Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf, the
Arabs want to appease them by making Israel pay
the price. Let the U.S. government and West
Europe, ready to accede to this betrayal, recognize
that while-the 22 Arab states had no room for the
Palestinian refugees, tiny Israel opened its doors not
only to the survivors of Hitler's death camps but also
to some 500,000 Jews forced to flee from Arab
countries. Thus at 32, Israel can be proud of its
accomplishments in absorbing people from all over
the world.
Neither President Carter nor President Sadat
can change these facts of history, even as they move
to change others.
Stop That Twitching
The State Department made a valid point when
it said that United States foreign policy will not
change as a result of Sen. Edward Kennedy's upset
victory over President Carter in the New York
Democratic Presidential primary Mar. 25.
"If each post-election analysis were to create an
involuntary reflex on what we do, we'd-be twitching
every week," State Department spokesman Hodding
Carter told reporters the day after the New York
But the real message that the Carter ad-
ministration's foreign policy establishment should
get from the New York vote is that there has been too
much "twitching" in the State Department ar the
White House.
What the President or Vice Presiden alter
Mondale or Mrs. Rosarynn Carter says one day is
contradicted the next by a statement from Secretary
of State Vance or some other State Department
rnn consistent policy, not twitching.
I picked up. my copy of the
New York Times the expatriate
New Yorker's Bible the other
morning and there it said in a
three-column heading, "Jews in
the Thousands Join Migration to
Sun Belt." Automatically, my
eye slid over the top heads in
Iran, inflation and The Campaign
to focus on this news item which
the Times' editors must have
regarded as of special im-
Four paragraphs down in the
story, I discovered that it was
based on a news release issued by
the American Jewish Committee
seven weeks previously but
jazzed up and given approriate
topical cover by Times reporters
in the field.
NOW I know there has been a
substantial movement of Jews
from the Northern tier to the Sun
Belt most of them elderly
retirees fleeing the rigors of the
Northern winters but including a
rising percentage of younger
Jews, mainly professionals, who
have recognized that the new
American frontier is the Sun
I can see it here in my own
town in Florida where the Jewish
population has increased at least
threefold since we took refuge
here a few years ago. But while
the Jewish community has in-
creased in size, so has the general
population. What was a quiet
backwater has become to the
sorrow of many a bustling
little city with traffic problem
you wouldn't believe. Since my
wife and I settled here, a
beautiful temple and a handsome
synagogue have been built here
but so have two more Catholic
I know, too, that Florida
claims a larger Jewish im-
migration annually than the
State of Israel, but then Florida
is one of the fastest growing
states in the Union, and it is most
unlikely that the Jewish im-
migration is much out of
proportion to the total volume.
Still, if the Times talks of "tens
of thousands" of migrating Jews,
it sounds as though there is a big
Jewish population movement. So
I checked the statistics compiled
over the years for the AJC's
American Jewish Year Book,
going back to the 1971 figures.
THE MOST important fact,
glossed over in the Times story,
is that American Jewish
population growth is at little
more than the zero level. The
second fact, brought out in the
Yearbook's demographic tables,
is of a Jewish population shift
paralleling that of the general
population. The virtual zero
growth rate of American Jewry
parallels that of the Jewish
communities abroad. In eight
years, the American Jewish
community decreased by nearly
In 1971, 24 percent of the
population of the United States
lived in the Northeast
49,591,000. including 63.2 per-
cent of the Jews of the country,
or 3.828.135. By 1979, the
Northeast's population had
dropped to 49,081,000 or 22.5
percent of the nation's
During this period, the Nor-
theast's Jewish population
dropped to 3,393,620 or 57.9
percent of the national total. So,
in eight years, the Northeast lost
434,815 Jews. During the same
period, the South s Jewish
population increased by 232,780
from all sources, including
natural growth, while the general
population increased by more
than 6.5 million.
THE Times singled out the
Sun Belt states Arizona,
California, Florida, Georgia,
Hawaii and Texas for special
mention as having had an "in-
flux" of Jews. Well, in eight
years, the Jewish population of
Arizona increased from 21,000 to
39,285 but the proportion of Jews
in the total population decreased
by .3 percent.
number of Jews actually
decreased from 721,045 in 1971 to
698,995 in 1979 and from 3.56
percent of the population to 3.1
percent. In the eight years, the
Jewish population of the Los
Angeles Metropolitan Area
slipped by 80,000, indicating that
some of the rapid growth
reported by communities like San
Diego may have been the result
of a shift of families from
metropolitan to less developed
In Florida, the retiree's
promised land, the Jewish
population jumped from 260,000
in 1971 to 435,558 in 1979, while
the total population increased by
more than 1.5 million, leaving the
Jews with their increased
numbers, actually a smaller
proportion of the population.
Certainly, many of the Jewish
newcomers had problems ad-
justing in the South, in becoming
acclimated, in adapting to a
slower pace and different style of
living, but hardly more so than
the non-Jew. In some cases.
Jewish newcomers may have
encountered anti-Semitic
manifestations but hardly more
serious or more frequent than in

Rabbis, Educational Directors,

Yesterday (Thursday. April 24) North Broward's

dates scheduled for the quarterly seminars conducted
for the religious school teachers of the community.
Phyllis Chudnow. educational director of Plan-
tation's Reconstructionist Synagogue, noted that "the
four professional growth teacher seminars conducted
this'year were highly successful. Teachers improved
their skills, techniques and insights into the teaching of
trip major Jewish festivals. Through common planning,
all'the teachers joined together in participating in the
sessions and in exchanging ideas and methods that
have worked in their own classrooms."
Plans for Judaica High School, according to
Abraham J. Uittelson,. educational director for the
Kcderation, include "intensification of the curricula,
initiation of a teacher-aide training program,
broadening the college credit classes, introduction of
special programs within the synagogue setting, and
expanding the scope of the high school throughout the
cut ire Jewish community of North Broward County. He
said: "The strengthening of the elementary level
religious school programming has resulted in a more
knowledgeable student body for the high school

and Tuesday, April 28 and 29. for teachers throughout
South Florida. The two-day session, to be led by Ruth

Emphasis will be on teaching according to an inquiry
approach, employing the latest knowledge of
traditional and modern Biblical scholarship.

Early Childhood Education programs in the area's
synagogues and Hebrew Day School to meet and
arrange their common calendar and deal with matters
relating to nursery and kindergarten activities.

*A Song in Their Hearts'
A seven pound dark haired,
blue-eyed Shira Sperber, given
the name from the famous "shira
Hashirim," Song of Songs, was
born to Laura and Matthew
Sperber on Kibbutz Yahel in the
Negev desert, Tuesday, April 8.
Ruth and Milton Sperber, of
Fort Lauderdale, happy grand-
parents, tell of the ecstatic
phone calls from Israel, reporting
the good news. In eight weeks,
they will make the journey to
visit and celebrate the birth of
their first Sabra grandchild.
Laura and Matthew were part
of the original group of National
Federation of Temple Youth of
the World Union for Progressive
Judaism that helped conceive the
plans for the first Reform Kib-
butz in 1976 in the Arava, north
of Eilat.
Laura is in charge of the
greenhouse, raising flowers for
export, and is active also as a
guide, when the LFTY and
NFTY youth groups visit.
Matthew heads the Seminar, the
new study center dedicated in
February on the kibbutz that was
built by the Sisterhoods of the
Reform Congregations, where
youth from all parts of the world
will come to study.
The American couple was
married in 1977, and enroute to
Israel, made a three-week tour of
Russia, in behalf of the Jewish
Agency in Israel, visiting as
good-will ambassadors with
many refusniks.
As far back as age 17, Laura
and Matthew, active always in
the Reform youth movements
both stated, "When we finish our
education, we will live our lives in
Israel" And so, a dream come
true for these pioneers, living
their hopes and prayers, a
commitment to build and
strengthen an Israel at peace, are
now the proud parents of
"Shira," a song in their hearts.
Shaw Seeks House Seat
Mayor E. Clay Shaw of Fort
Lauderdale, recently returned
from the mayors' conference in
Israel, announced his candidacy
for the 12th District
congressional seat now held by
Rep. Edward Stack.
In Israel, Mayor Shaw pledged
his continuing support of Israel
in a meeting with Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin in
Jerusalem. A wide range of issues
was discussed, including mutual
problems affecting rapidly
growing metropolitan areas.
Shaw was one of 10 mayors
from across the country invited
by Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
Kollek to the International
Mayors' Conference. The con-
ference was hosted by the
municipality of Jerusalem, and
directed by the American Jewish
Congress and the Institute for
Jerusalem Studies.
Mayor Shaw addressed the
International Conference on the
"Problems of Governing a
Heterogenous City." Earlier in
the week Shaw visited several
historic cities, including
Bethlehem, Jericho, and Old and
New Jerusalem. He also toured a
kibbutz, Judea Hills, and
the Yad / Vashem Holocaust
The Mayors' Conference en-
titled "Urban Problems of
Heterogeneous Cities," took
place in Jerusalem from April 8 -
10. Shaw gained a better un-
derstanding of Jerusalem's urban
development and municipal
administration, as well as those
of the other cities represented at
the conference. Although Mayor
Shaw represented the Broward
county Fort Lauderdale area,
the trip was not paid for by the

minimum contribution to the 1980 United Jewish Appeal for those
who wish to receive The Jewish Floridian the newspaper
published every two weeks with national, international, and local
news of interest to residents in the Jewish community of North
Broward County. The new minimum is $25.
In the seven years that the Jewish Federation has been involved
in the publication of the Greater Fort Lauderdale edition, the costs
for postage, typesetting, printing, newsprint, and maintaining ac-
curate mailing addresses have all risen dramatically. The Jewish
Federation can no longer absorb these costs and your under-
standing of the necessity for this action is sincerely appreciated

Phys Ed Classes Ottered
Sunday, April 6, marked the
first performance of the Jewish
Community Center's Children's
Theatre group. The show, "The
Master Cat" was a "family af-
fair." Within this group of
players and production staff were
family units of children and
parents, husbands and wives,
working together to make it the
success that it was.
Ivy Levine, director, had the
support of husband, Larry, who
loved being stage manager, and
commented that "I'm looking
forward to the next production."
Rick Nathanson, who designed
and helped build the set, while
wife, Susan, portrayed the fierce
giant, agreed, "It's been loads of
fun being a part of the show."
"Puss in Boots," Joseph
Schaal, and his mother Alizira,
who made the costumes, were
another family unit; as was

Q: Why should the Zeppelin
really be called a "Schwartz'?
A: Because "The Zeppelin" was
invented by David Schwartz.
David Schwartz was an Austrian-born
engineer who. in 1890, came up with the
idea of an airship with a gas-filled metal
container to make it rise. Because of finan-
cial reasons, the Austrian minister of war
turned down the idea. However, in 1892,
after Schwartz built a prototype in Russia,
the German government urged him to
go ahead with production for them.
Unfortunately. Schwartz died before the
project could get off the ground. Shortly
thereafter, Count von Zeppelin bought the
patents from Schwartz's widow.

Greater Fort Lauderdale recently
honored Helene Soref, longtime
activist in Jewish communal
affairs, for her commitment to
rebuilding the land of Israel
through her support of the
Jewish National Fund.
Dr. Alvin Colin, JNF North

wake of the Egyptian-Israel
peace treaty. He commended the
Greater Fort Lauderdale region

spectacular success this year.

than ever before nearly
doubling their income of last

Soref carried on a proud tradition
in her family, noting that her
husband, Sam Soref, had been
honored by JNF of Milwaukee
several years ago.
Dr. Cohen then briefed the
dinner guests on current JNF
activities, emphasizing how the
funds raised by Fort Lauderdale
and other communities have a
direct and immediate effect on
strengthening and securing the
peace in Israel. The Fund is
engaged in establishing some 30
look-out posts in the Galilee, the
northern sector of Israel, many of
which will later become settle-
ments. An additional 49 sites in
the Galilee are being developed
by the JNF through programs of
afforestation, the creation of
parks, agricultural, industrial
and urban sites. In all. the JNF
will be operating in some 500
locations throughout Israel.

Center Okays New Name
At a recent meeting the
membership of Margate Jewish
Center overwhelmingly approved
two motions by the Temple
executive board. It decided on a
new name, "Temple Beth Am of
Margate Jewish Center." This
decision followed the suggestion
of Rabbi Dr. Solomon Geld.
It also approved engaging the
services of Cantor Mario
Botoshansky for the first year
with negotiable terms for the
second year. Cantor Botoshansky
was chosen from a field of five
other cantors who had previously
sung at services.
The committee, after careful
thought, felt that he brought
with him a richness and breadth
of tone, acquired through decades
of thorough practice, study at
Italy's finest schools for the
voice, original compositions and
arrangements, teaching Bel
Canto and Hazzunit methods to
so many of his younger
He was chief cantor of the
famous Temple Maggiore in
Rome before the arrival of Hitler,
then as cantor at Brooklyn's
Shaare Torah until neighborhood
changes forced its closing.
