U.N. Security Council Says, 'Return West Bank Leaders'
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) The Security
Council adopted a resolution May 8 calling on Israel to
allow the return of three Palestinian leaders it expelled
from the occupied West Bank of the Jordan River.
The United States abstained and the resolution was
approved 14-0. The other Western members of the 15-
nation council Britain, France, Portugal and Norway
voted for the resolution along with China, the Soviet
i Union, East Germany, Tunisia, Niger, Zambia, Bang-
ladesh, the Philippines. Mexico and Jamaica.
The resolution says the council calls on Israel "to
rescind these illegal measures and to facilitate the im-
mediate return of the expelled Palestinian leaders so
that they can resume the functions for which they were
elected and appointed."
It asks UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim "to
report upon the implementation of this resolution."
U.S. Ambassador William vanden Heuvel noted that
the resolution did not refer to the action that prompted
i he expulsions the Palestinian guerrilla killing of six
I sraelis in Hebron the night before.
'We are dealing here with a tragic cycle of
violence iii
one violent act begets another,"
Vanden Heuvel said.
"We deeply regret that the resolution does not refer
to the killing in Hebron of six Israelis and the wounding
of 17 others. We condemn this wanton act of violence at
Hebron, and the Palestine Liberation Organization's
responsibility for it," he said.
Earlier on May 8 Arab countries revised the
resolution to get it more votes in the council, a Western
diplomat said privately. They deleted a reference to an
earlier resolution criticizing Israel and a provision that
would have had the council "deplore" Israeli expulsion
of the three Palestinian leaders, the diplomat said.
Two weeks earlier the UN Security Council voted 12-
0 to adopt a resolution deploring acts of violence but
only Israel was singled out for blame. The U.S. ab-
stained from voting.
Speaking directly after the vote. Israel's Ambas-
sador to the UN Yehuda Blum declared that the
resolution and the Security Council's debate which led
up to it were "marked by a striking lack of balance and
also by selective conscience."
Privately. Israeli sources expressed "surprise" that
t he U.S. had only abstained in what they felt was a one-
sided resolution singling out Israel for censure. They
pointed out that the resolution failed to mention the
terrorist attack on Kibbutz Misgav Am on April 7
which originated in Lebanon and was the reason for the
incursion of Israeli forces into south Lebanon two days
later. The resolution also did not mention the various
terrorist groups of the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization active in Lebanon.
U.S. Ambassador Donald McHenry said the U.S.
abstained because the resolution is "unbalanced"
inasmuch as it failed to mention the use of Lebanese
territory to perpetrate acts of violence against Israel.
McHenry. in his statement explaining why the U.S.
abstained, said: "In this situation, the United States
regards this resolution as an unbalanced and
inadequate response to the problem. The important
objective is to agree on practical measures to improve
the conditions for UNIFIL's operations and to assure
full cooperation with UNIFIL. At the same time, the
resolution does not directly acknowledge the fact of
cross-border terrorism against Israel which is one of the
essential elements of the threat to peace in the region.
Tragedies like that at Misgav Am are not referred to
even by reference. We will therefore abstain."

- The Israeli military govern-

a house-to-house search for the
terrorists, believed to number
three or four. Israeli authorities

attacked, and deported three
West Bank leaders on charges of
incitement.
Shot in the Back
Most of those killed and in-
jured in the PLO attack were
shot in the back. Survivors said it
was a miracle that only one child
was injured, not seriously. There
were several children in the group
of 100 that was attacked.
In Damascus, a spokesman for
the PLO claimed responsibility
for the attack. On Saturday, PLO
chief Yasir Arafat said the attack
was part of a new phase in the
Palestinian struggle against
Israel, aimed at increasing armed
resistance to Israeli settlements
in the West Bank and Gaza.

Broward County
Has Fts First Mchel
About 16 months ago when his wife was about to
give birth to their child, Alan Weiss of Margate went
to Rabbi Israel Zimmerman of Tamarac Jewish
Center asking about getting a mohel religious
circumciser in the event a boy was born. The
rabbi told him, Weiss said, that there was none in
Broward County, that occasionally a rabbi in Miami
would be called on to come to Broward County,
otherwise a surgeon was used.
Even though two weeks later Mrs. Weiss gave
birth to a girl, Alan decided he would become a
mohel. Backed by his experience as a surgical nurse
in an Army 90-bed ward in Texas during the Viet-
nam years, Weiss received the cooperation of two
surgeons at Plantation General Hospital in getting
surgical training for the delicate circumcision the
cutting off the prepuce Of" male infants eight days
after birth as a sign of inclusion in the Jewish
religious community.
Then he studied halacha (Jewish law) concerning
circumcisions with Rabbi Zimmerman and Joseph
Schlusser of Margate, a Jewish law scholar. He put
together a library of his own on Jewish law, secured
surgical instruments from Harry Bronstein, a doctor
of divinity in Brooklyn. Now, considering himself
fully qualified, Weiss offers himself as Broward
County's mohel.
Weiss, born 36 years ago in New York City, has
been a resident in Florida for four years. Manager of
the Beltone Hearing Aid Center in Pompano Beach,
Weiss, his wife and their 16-month-old daughter live
at 1635 NW 80th Ave.. Margate.

Begin Knocks Nations for Holding NudelSupportjjained_
'Stopwatch' on Autonomy Talks ^
I
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israeli Prime Minister Menachem
Begin rebuked countries holding
"stopwatches"' over the
Palestinian autonomy talks to
ensure they conclude by the May
26 target date.
Begin did not name any of the
nations but the statement ap-
peared to be a veiled criticism of
the United States and possibly
European nations, who have
recommended a quick end to the
I 1 month negotiations, which are
now suspended and stalled by
Egypt's decision for more delay.
tie said some nations appear to
be "standing with a stopwatch in
their hands as if they did not
i conduct negotiations for years,
sometimes many years" a
possible allusion to U.S.
negotiations with North Viet-
nam.
Begin told 300 women
members of his Herut Party May
12 that patience is needed in the
talks "until all sides come to the
negotiating table."
Palestinians on the West Bank
refused at the time of Camp
David to enter the talks and
Jordan, which administered the
area until it lost the 1967 Middle
East war, has also said it will not
participate.
Egyptian, Israeli and U.S.
negotiators failed to reached
agreement on the basis for
Palestinian self-rule making it
virtually impossible to meet the
May 26 deadline set by the Camp
David accords.
The talks stalled over the issue
of Israel's security until they
were suspended by Eyptian
President Anwar Sadat.
But Begin again said Israel
must control, security in the
occ upiftrVbrit ies.
"Security in Judea, Samaria
(the occupied West Bank) and
the Gaza Strip must be the
responsibility of Israel and Israel
alone," Begin said.
"There are those who say that
because of this declaration .
the negotiations have for the time
being been stopped, but I must
make one simple clarification. We
can prove this principle is an-
chored in the Camp David ac-
cords."
He then criticized Egypt for
proposing legislative powers for a
projected self-ruling Palestinian
authority.
'Time for Leadership'
LOS ANGELES The
contemporary Jewish family and
the forces that place it under
heavy assault, the dawn of a new
age in Jewish life, the concen-
tration on "self" rather than
community, feminism in relation
to Judaism, and the need for a
strong Jewish communal
leadership were the primary
topics discussed by the nearly
1.000 Jewish community leaders
who gathered recently in Los
Angeles for the five-day 1980
Biennial of the JWB-the
Association of Jewish Com-
munity Centers. YM & YWHAs
and Camps in the United States
and Canada.
"The big news in Jewish life
today is that we are at the
beginning of a new era with
unprecendented challenges and
opportunities," Dr. Irving
Greenberg, former director of the
President's Commission on the
Holocaust and currently the
director of the National Jewish
Resource Center, told the
assembled delegates.
"This new era has been shaped
by the Holocaust and the rebirth
of Israel," he said, adding, "The
new era is more open to Jewish
assimilation, but at the same
time more open to Jewish values,
experience, and message. In the
course of this, old divisions in the
Jewish community are
weakening."
"Feminism Is It Good for the
.lews?" was discussed by Blu
Greenberg, author, lecturer, and
chairman. Task Force on Women
in a Changing Society of the
Federation of Jewish Philan-
thropies of New York. "While
there are tensions between
feminism and Judaism, there are
many ways in which they can
nurture each other." she said.
"The Jewish family is under
heavy assault from a variety of
forces the alarming rise in
divorces, the growing ac-
ceptability of a singles lifestyle,
the increasing number of women
in careers."
In an interview, Robert L.
Adler of Chicago, re-elected
president, said that Jewish
communities must immediately
utilize the vast untapped
reservoir of "womanpower" to
meet in growing demands of the
spiraling Jewish population in
cities throughout the Sunbelt.
Newly-elected as a JWB
director-at-large was Miriam
Zatinsky of Miami.

Rep. Stack
Congressman Edward J. Stack
of Fort Lauderdale enlisted 32 of
his colleagues in the U.S. House
of Representatives last month to
honor the 49th birthday of Ida
Nudel. the widelv-known Russian
"Prisoner of Conscience." Stack
met Ida's sister in Washington.
In conjunction with the efforts
of the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, Congressman
Stack requested and was granted
permission from Speaker Thomas
P. (Tip) O'Neill, to set aside one
hour of time in which members of
the House could express their
support for Ida Nudel and Soviet
Jewry.
The Congressmen condemned
the Soviet Union for denying
Soviet Jews the right to emigrate
from the Soviet Union, as
Eluna Fridman,
Sister of Ida Nudel
guaranteed by the Helsinki
Accord.
During the Congressional
S|Hcial Order session. Stack s;iid
Ida Nudel "still languishes in
exile in Siberia" where she was
sentenced to a four-year im-
prisonment term on the chari'i .if
unfurling a banner displaying the
words: "KGB, give me a visa."
"We," Stack told the House of
Representatives, "are taking the
occasion of her birthday to call
attention again to her plight, as
well as to remind the family of
civilized nations that she, and
countless other Soviet Jews, have
been continually harassed and
denied the right to emigrate from
the Soviet Union as guaranteed
by the Helsinki Accords."
You probably have a will.
But there's another step to
consider.
It's called The Guardian
Plan. And it may be the most con-
siderate thing- people can do for
each other.
Today, more and more
people are including it in their
plans for family protection. These ient appointment. Or v
One of our experienced,
authorized representatives will
explain all of the ways The
Guardian Plan can meet your
needs. There's no obligation. Call
us to arrange a conven- v.
independent-minded people look
at life without flinching. They
believe that in the event of death,
loved ones should be protected
from having to make funeral
decisions at the worst possible
time alone.
It's the reason they turn to
The Guardian Plan. The Guardian
Plan enables people to make
funeral plans in advance, at a price
they believe is right. And with
The Guardian Plan, the price won't
increase in the future, regardless
of inflation. If desired, payment
for the services selected may be
made in convenient interest-free
monthly installments. And all the
money is fully refundable in the
event of cancellation.
The Guardian Plan is a com-
mon sense, thoughtful approach
to a difficult problem. It avoids

Behind Sadat's Decision
We can second-guess Anwar Sadat's decision to
call a halt to the autonomy talks from now until
doomsday and come up with a thousand different
explanations, each with merit of its own.
One thing is not a matter of speculation: It
shows Mr. Sadat's bad faith. It demonstrates, more
than anything he has said or done since his so-called
"peace initiative." that he has more in mind than a
new Middle East world with Israel as an integral part
of it working in harmony with the Arab states of the
region.
We have always believed that to be a pipe
dream, much to the consternation of other observers
who consider this hawkish, even unrealistic-ally
hostile and aggressive.
But events speak for themselves. Even well
before the May 26 deadline for an autonomy agree-
ment, which both Sadat and Prime Minister Begin
long ago conceded is no more than a "target date,"
Egypt's leader has unilaterally called a halt to the
talks.
What is there to gain? The answer is obvious:
more pressure from Europe's cowardly satraps: more
pressure from President Carter, who has good inten-
tions but petrodiplomaticiadvice lhatisteers him
inexorably in the direction of forcing Israel back into
her pre-1967 herders, which means into her 1948
borders.
The Master Plan
In effect. President Sadat, as he comes closer
and closer to retrieving his lost territories by nego-
tiation as the price for "peace," also becomes a
louder and louder spokesman for the Palestinian
cause.
Retrieving his lost territories was part one in
Sadat's master plan. Resumption of his role as leader
of the Palestinian world through his advocacy a
Palestinian state is part two.
Lest there be doubt. Consider this week's most
startling revelation: the continued operation of an El
Fatah terrorist office in downtown Cairo at this very
moment. Object? To disorganize the Gaz Strip.
Is it conceivable that President Sadat doesn't
know about this?
Hardly not for the man of "peace" and of
"good will" and of "friendship" for Israel, who calls
a halt to the talks as a means of hastening the
process of calling a halt to Israel itself.
Impossible? We hope so. We fear not.

Magen David for Israel, receives the ARMDI International
Humanitarian Award for 1980 from George Elsey, American
Red Cross national president, at the ARMDI annual luncheon
in New York City at which Handleman was an honored guest
The U.S. news media's "track
record" in the Arab-Israeli con-
flict has been "miserable." That
indictment by Wolf Blitzer. The
Jerusalem Post's Washington
correspondent, and a former
editor of this publication, ap-
peared in the April 20 New
Republic.
Failures of the news media to
understand the Middle East,
Blitzer continues, reflect "pack
journalism at its worst," for
"anonymous U.S. officials who
have served up planeloads of
misinformation between 1977 and
1979 are once again spoon-
feeding the best and brightest of
the American media, who in tum
are dutifully shoveling it into
their columns and broadcasts."
As in the past, gloom and
doom editorializing has surfaced
again in coverage of the auton-
omy talks.
On the eve of President
Carter's meetings with Egypt's
Anwar Sadat and Israel's
Menachem Begin, many in the
media endorsed Sadat's view on
autonomy and labeled the "in-
transigent Begin" the obstacle.
Thus, Newsweek's April 28
issue featured the complaints of
an Egyptian official that "the
Israelis had it their way again
Egypt is doing all the giving."
In the past. Sadat has" fre-
quently charged that he has
given everything and received
nothing surely an absurd com-
plaint when one recalls Israel's
retreat from large tracts of Sinai,
major defense outposts and
richly productive oil wells.
The Camp David agreement
proposed an administrative
authority and not one with legis-

lative and judicial powers, such
as Sadat has been demanding
with Washington's support and
which, Israel fears, would inevit-
ably lead to a Palestinian state.
The New York Times, on April
6, pointed out that the Jordanian
and the Palestinian refusals to
join the autonomy talks are also
obstacles, and that Israel could
be expected to "pursue a more
conciliatory path, only if the case
for it is made by America, whose
vision and support they trust."
Blitzer maintains that a sig-
nificant number of U.S. officials
are hostile to the Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty, consistent
with the negative U.S. attitude
during Israel's struggle for
existence in 1947 and 1948.
Rising Arab expectations of
victory at that time, and often in
later years, reinforced Arab
refusal to agree to any com-
promise.
The news media are mani-
pulated. Blitzer points out. by
administration officials who often
evoke "the direst scenarios" in
order to increase pressure on
negotiators, even though a favor-
able outcome may be assured and
is at hand. So it was at Camp
David, again in Jerusalem last
year and again when President
Carter met with Sadat and Begin
this month. An atmosphere of
deadlock and gloom on the eve of
success is created in order to
enhance the chances of success.
In Praise of Jerusalem
Many visitors to Jerusalem are
deeply impressed by that city's
beauty and accessibility and
believe it should remain unified
and ruled by Israel for all its
peoples and all religious faiths.
A recent visitor, Frank Scott,
vice president and general
manager of Washington's WRC
radio, broadcast a series of
editorials in which he strongly
supported Israel's position on the
origin of the Arab refugee
problem and its solution.
Early in April a dozen
American mayors went to
Jerusalem for an international
conference of mayors, sponsored
by the American Jewish Con-
gress and the U.S. Conference of
Mayors. Reflecting their view.
Mayor Kenneth Blackwell of
Cincinnati declared. "Only a
unified Jerusalem can provide
opportunities for growth that
this city needs to prosper." The
mayors came from Birmingham.

Conference on Women in Israel
NEW YORK (JTA) An
organization calling itself the
North American Coalition for
Women in Israel has been
established to deal with what it
terms the grim reality of the lives
of women in Israel. The founding
national conference took place
here in April and for two-and-a-
half days explored the personal,
professional and religious status
of Israeli women, according to
Ellen Bob. editor of The Journal,
the publication of the North
Shore Jewish community in
Salem, Mass.. who will emigrate
to Israel in 1981.
The declaration of principles
adopted by the 200 women at-
tending the conference stated
that "we support the struggle for
equality of Israeli women
through our activism. We
recognize that the preliminary
basis of this activism is aliya.
thereby sharing the respon-
sibility of improving Israeli
society."
The declaration called on the
Knesset and government of
Israel "to allow secular solutions
for secular people and we demand
full expression and legal
recognition to all branches of
Judaism. We call on the
Orthodox rabbinate to increase
their sensitivity to women's
issues and to direct steps towards
redressing sexual equality."
Cites Power Of Rabbinate
Lesley Hazel ton, author of
Israeli Women: The Reality
Behind the Myth, told the
conference that despite Israel's
Declaration of Independence's
guarantee of equality irrespective
of religion, race or sex, Israeli
women face many legal and social
obstacles to achieving equal
rights.
Among these. Hazelton
said, is the absolute power vested
in the Orthodox rabbinate by the
Knesset in all matters of personal
law. If feminism is to be
achieved, she said, "there must
be a separation of synagogue and
slate The real issue is the
political establishment of
Orthodox Judaism."
Shulamit Aloni. Civil Rights
Party Knesset member, warned
that the power of the rabbinate in
areas of marriage and divorce
mitigate against democracy.
What makes (Ashkenazi Chief
Rabbi Shlomol Goran's in-
terpretations any better than -
mine?" she asked the audience. V.
"The only place for imposed
unity in a democracy is in the
army."

New Threats to Refuse niks in USSR Israel Tennis Exhibition
The Community Relations
Committee (CRC) of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, headed by Edmund
Entin, received information
regarding the persecution of
three activists in the Soviet
Union. Community action has
been employed in calling upon
the Soviet Ambassador in
Washington and the new U.S.
Secretary of State Edmund
Muskie requesting his inter-
vention with Soviet authorities.
This is the opinion of both
NJCRAC (National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory
Council) and the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ).
NCSJ received information
that Moisey Tonkonogy, 28,
whose parents received per-
mission in 1973 to emigrate to
Israel, but who was denied an
exit visa at the same time, has
lH.'en sentenced to one year in
prison for "parasitism." His
parents' activity in Israel
resulted in warnings from Soviet
authorities that he "would
regret" it if they continued their
activities.
Leonid Volvovsky, 38-year-old
Hebrew teacher whose exit
permit was denied six years ago,
has been arrested on charges of
vagrancy and begging.
Moisey Zats, his wife, two chil-
dren and mother-in-law received
an exit visa to Israel at the end of
1979, but at the last minute, his
visa was confiscated and an old
investigation officially closed in
1977 was reopened. He is now
being placed on trial for "mis-
using his position" at the factory
where he previously worked.
Soviets Slowing Emigration
>
NEW YORK (JTA) In Moscow, Soviet
authorities have dusted off an old deterrent to
Jewish emigration, according to the National C'on-
Ference on soviet Jewry. The Soviets are trying to
cut down the record emigration levels of last year.
An invitation from a family to a would-be emigre
must come from what's known as a "first-degree
relative."
It means that Soviet Jews in many areas of the
country must now produce an invitation from
parents, children or siblings living in Israel before
emigration authorities will even consider allowing
them to emigrate. With rare exceptions, the
authorities previously would accept an invitation
from aunts, cousins or more distant relatives.
So far. application of the "first-degree relative'*
requirement has been inconsistent. It is undoubtedly
growing, however, and is a major factor behind the
significant drop in Jewish emigration recorded over
the last few months. If it were to be applied univer-
sally, Jewish sources say, it would limit Jewish
emigration to no more than 10,000 to 15,000 persons
a year compared to the record 51.000 who left in
1979.
Western and Jewish sources alike say they believe
such a sharp cutback is unlikely. Rather, they say, it
appears that Soviet authorities were surprised by
the huge numbers who suddenly began applying to
leave in late 1978 and early 1979 and moved to limit
the rate to more politically acceptable levels.
I think they want to keep the number at about
30.000 a year," one Jewish activist said.
Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union has only
exceeded 30.000 in three years since the latest wave
began in the late 1960s.
Rather than being upset by the recent cutback,
Jewish sources here say they are surprised that the
rate remains as high as it has in the wake of the
Total Cemetery
Pre-Arrangement
with full
"Package Savings"
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan last December and
the sharp deterioration in Soviet-American relations.
Through the first three months of this year. 8.695
Soviet Jews have received exit visas allowing them
to co lo Israel, according to well informed sources
lure Thai is 28.6 percent fewer than the 12.185 who
receh ed permission in the first three months of 1979.
Western and Jewish sources alike say they do not
believe the emigration figures reflect the latest crisis
in Soviet-American relations.
"Insufficient kinship" has been used before as
grounds to turn down would-be emigres, most
notably in 1976 after Soviet President Leonid I.
Brezhnev signed the Helsinki accords and set off a
wave of applications based on their human rights
guarantees. It has never been applied on so wide a
scale as it is now, however.
The Helsinki agreements speak vaguely about
guaranteeing the rights of citizens to emigrate in
order lo "reunify" their families. They do not spell
out the degree of kinship required to qualify under
those guarantees.
In fact, the majority of Jews who left the Soviet
Union during the 1970s merely wanted out
"family reunification" had little or nothing to do
with their motives. The Kremlin realized this, but for
its own reasons went along with what one Jewish
source here referred to as "the game."
The primary reason behind the Kremlin's current
action is probably the enormous backlog of Jews
who want to leave, experts here believe.
About 130.000 invitations were sent from Israel to
Soviet Jews requesting them in 1979 alone a
record. That compared with an average of 39,000
new invitations per year sent during the 1974-1977
period and 107.000 in 1978, according to the
National Conference on Soviet Jewry.

nounces it will have the first

Many of the children in the group
are part of the original class who
started when the school began.
The program is set for Mon-
day, June 9, at 2:30 p.m. at Soref
Hall. The format of the program
includes Rabbi Phillip Labowitz
of Temple Beth Israel, and a
founding parent of the Hebrew
Day School. He will deliver a
brief message to the class, as well
as do the benediction.
The children will give a class
history and class will. Slides
tracing the school's history will
make up part of the afternoon.

the occasion.

Fran Merenstein, school director,
will present the diplomas to the
graduates. The parents of the
group will host their guests and
the school children at a brief
reception after the program.
Taking an active role in the
Greater Fort Lauderdale Jewish
community has always been a
vital aspect of The Hebrew Day
School children participation in
programs such as the Yom
Ha'atzmut Day at the JCC.
In addition to such par-
ticipation, the Day School
children participate in Shabbat
services at various temples. This
year. Temple Beth Israel was
selected where the fourth and
fifth grade children would take an
active role. The children con-

Sheriff Candidate
Donald "Orsi" Schultz of Coral
Springs, a veteran of 20 years of
police service and security ad-
ministration, is a candidate for
Sheriff of Broward County in the
Sept. 9 Primary. Author of 13 law
enforcement texts, charter
member of Coral Springs
Masonic Lodge, he is the coor-
dinator of the Criminal Justice
program at the North Campus of
Broward Community College. He
has a master's degree in public
administration from University
of South California.
ducted the service on Friday,
May 16, under the direction ol
Moshe Ezry of the Hebrew
department.
Leading a Friday night service
is a natural for these children.
Each week at Kabbalat Shabbat
the children hold their own
service. Reading and un-
derstanding the Torah portion of
the week is just one of the lessons
these children master.
Diversity is the word for those
fourth and fifth graders. Mrs.
Annie Mitchell has undertaken
many different projects for this
group. As part of their science
unit, the children planted a large
vegetable garden. What farmers
they became!
The children have all learned a
new dimension through this
program. Now they know how to
plant, how to care for, and how to
prepare a myriad of vegetables.
The class is definitely not
sexist. All of the children, boys
and girls, counter-cross stitched
samplers for Mother's Day.
An integral part of the
curriculum is studying the
holidays in depth. Shavuot is no
exception. The children have
studied Shavuot in their
classrooms and had a special
service on the holiday. The
significance of the holiday as well
as its interpretations today have
been covered.
For example, the young
children (first-second grade) have
been making their own tablets of
the Ten Commandments. All of
the children at this level are
learning to recite the Ten

A call for all cooks is being
heard at the Hebrew Day school.
Mrs. Margie Katz, chairperson of
the cookbook, is asking anyone in
the community to send in their
favorite holiday recipes to the
school office.
As part of the cookbook, there
will be brief descriptions of how
to prepare and observe the
holidays. An explanation of the
holidays will also be included if
space allows.
Anyone having recipes to
share, should contact the school

JCC Elections June 1
1,145 invitations are in the
mail for the annual meeting of the
Jewish Community Center of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
"The Jewish Community
Center's 1980 annual meeting is
another milestone for us," said
Harvey Kopelowitz, JCC vice
president and annual m
chairman.
"While this is
not the Center's
first annual
meeting, it is the
first to which
there has been a
membership to
invite, and the
first on our own
campus." Kopelowitz
Best of Broadway 11
"As long as I can walk, and as
long as I have the fingers to play
the piano, I'll be working." If you
know Irene Unterman, director
and producer of "Best of
Broadway II," a successful
musical extravaganza which will
be performed at the Jewish Com-
munity Center on Thursday,
June 5 and Saturday, June 7, at 8
p.m., you will recognize Irene in
that statement.
Unterman is a musically ex-
citing and vigorous lady who has
a background of producing and
directing Children's Theatre for
many years. She teaches the
piano, arranges music, and per-
forms with an inherent talent.
Irene is the salt and pepper
behind the success of the Twin
Lakes Theatre Group. She in-
spires the confidence and en-
courages the spirit that makes
this group committed to excel-
lence. She knows how to bring
out the best in her performers.
They know it and love her for it.
A graduate of the Juilliard
School of Music, she has brought
her love of music and theater to
the community. For the past
seven years, she has directed and
produced shows for the Twin
Lakes Theatre. Blessed with
vigor and a permeating warmth
that reaches those she involves in
her projects, she is tour de force
in Fort Lauderdale's musical
community.
Irene can spend hours at the
piano rehearsing or playing for a
performance and emerge
refreshed. She never tires of
making musical plans and
remembering her musical past.
At the drop of a hat, she'll sit
down at the piano and create a
program from a slip of an idea.
Husband, Sam, recognizes that
her lifestyle revolves about her
music. He is most supportive and
enjoys her success.
The arrival of the Jewish
Community Center has been
exciting news for Unterman.
"Imagine," she says, "once we
Jews weren't welcome in Fort
Lauderdale, and now we have a
JCC in our midst."
Come and meet and enjoy
Irene Unterman and the talented
Twin Lakes Theatre in their pre-
sentation of "Best of Broadway"
as they dance, sing and create to
tunes from such musical hits as
"King and I," "Annie Get Your
Gun," "Sound of Music" and
others.
Call 792-6700 for further in-
formation.
Blind Group Entertained
A large attendence is expected
at the June 1 meeting which will
be held on campus in Samuel M.
SorefHallatlOa.m.
In addition to the elections of
:he board of directors for 1980-81,
ihere will be committee reports
and awards presented. One of the
highlights of the program will be
the State of JCC Address by
Anita Perlman, president.
The meeting will be followed
by luncheon and installation of
officers and board. Reservations
are a must. RSVP by calling the
Center office, 792-6700.
Just before the cltmax of "Never Too Late," as Joel Telles and
Alan Margolies play the drunk scene to the horror of their
respective "wives," Gert Goodman and Audrey Schwartz.
The Jewish Community Center
Theatre Guild production of
"Never Too Late" opened on
May 10 and ran for five per-
formances to receptive and
appreciative audiences. They
laughed and gave sustenance to
the actors who had worked so
diligently for two months.
The set that William Shulman
created and constructed, with the
assistance of Ben Scribner and
Joseph Schwartz, was both
realistic and extremely
professional.
Joel Telles, director and actor,
did a fantastic job after stepping
into the role of Harry Lambert
only 10 days before opening. All
the actors gave credibility to
their roles. It would not be
surprising if Gert Goodman
always answers to the name of
"Edith."
Alan Margolies and Audrey
Schwartz performed their roles
with humor and integrity. Gloria
Fisher, president of Theatre
Guild, gave a marvelous per-
formance as the friend; Allen
Cohen, as the pompous mayor
was most engaging, as were Dr.
Stephen Levine, Morton Pine and
Irv Salit in each of their sup-
portive roles. Linda Cohen, as
producer, can be proud of the
members of her committee.
"The Jewish Community
Center is bursting with pride. We
appreciate our Theatre Guild and
the fine entertainment it brings
to our community," said William
Goldstein, executive director.
"Ladies with heart" are titles
given to Nan Namiot,chairperson
of the Reachout, and Min Bodin,
chairperson of the blind, both
programs of WECARE of the
Jewish Community Center of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, and
beneficiary of UJA funds raised
by Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale.
Nan's home is the scene of
monthly teas for the blind, and
weekly Oneg Shabbatim for the
less fortunate, at which time she
serves homemade refreshments
and entertainment is provided by
volunteers. Min Bodin is a bundle
of busyness, coordinating in-
vitations, transportation and
program, in addition to her usual
visits with the blind, young and
old. Min and Nan are always
gladly available for any volunteer
service required.
At a recent tea, four blind
gentlemen and their wives, were
present. A volunteer, Harold
Treach, who happened to answer
the phone when his wife wasn't
home, says he was "sold the
Brooklyn Bridge" by Nan
Namiot. Through her efforts, he
is now a friend of Jack Schultz,
who is blind, for whom he does
home repairs, bank errands,
writes letters, etc., and calls to
chat, as friends often do.
Entertainment was provided
by Harry Oransky, who taught
guitar as a hobby, and Nan, who
Dlayed the piano as accompanist.
Harry, whose wife needs 24 hour
attention due to Alzheimer's
disease, hired someone to care for
her while he performed volun-
tarily at the tea. He is active in
the Alzheimer organization,
which is struggling to get funds
through legislation to further the
study of the disease which is a
form of advanced senility and is
being researched for possible
prevention of alleviation of
symptoms.
Songs by Ida Kaplan and
Yiddish stories by Anne Fleisch-
man, coordinator of WECARE,
made this an unforgetable event.
Among those present were Sally
Kadin. WKCARE general
chairperson. Terry Bernstein and
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Morgano.
Coral Springs Day at JCC
The spirits of more than 250
Coral Springs residents, some of
them pictured above, were not
dampened by bad weather when
JCC celebrated Coral Springs
Day. The crowd was treated to a
fun afternoon in Soref Hall where
(photos right) Johl Rotman, JCC
membership chairman, held the
box of names for David Gross,
Coral Springs Day chairman, to
draw a winner of a free one-year
membership; and Brian Brora-
berg was a foil for magic tricks by
Michael Winters.

Bus Routes Planned for Campers
The entire Center staff is very
much involved in the preparation
for Summer Day Camp which
begins June 23.
"Providing transportation for
many of the 360 campers (each of
the two sessions) is a mammoth
task," said Sandy Jackowitz, the
JCC's community relations
associate, whose job it is to plan
the routes. She is assisted by
Joni Berry, another staff worker.
The Center uses the services of
a private transportation com-
pany from which it leases five
buses and drivers daily. These
buses service all of North
Hroward County. Campers come
from Lighthouse Point, Coral
Springs, Davie and Tamarac, as
well as those areas closer to the
Center, like Lauderhill, Lauder-
dale Lakes, Sunrise and Plan-
tation.
"Our main concern when plan-
ning the routes is the safety of
the campers," said Jackowitz,
"and we also try to plan the
routes to go as quickly and ef-
ficiently as possible."
Hid inn the bus is an important

by some lucky customers.
In addition to clothing for all

articles of furniture, light fix-
" lures, lamps, wall decorations,
jewelry, appliances, TV's that
M i irk and too many other items to
list Shoppers find just what they
have been looking for, as many
designer items reach the clothes
racks.
A letter was recently sent to
- William Goldstein, executive
director ot the JCC, in grateful
appreciation from a young man
for the clothes he obtained
through "Le Browse." These
clothes made it possible for him
to serve his internship in court
reporting. He had been attending
school on a government
assistance program and needed
help getting out into the field of
his choice properly attired.
Open Monday through Friday,
9:30 a.m.-4 p.m., the shop is
located at 4328 State Road 7

side of the road in the Shop of

part of the camp day. Many of
the campers cultivate friendships
during the time they spend on the
bus. They also develop a rapport
with the drivers, several of whom
are returning to JCC for second
and third camp sessions.
Jackowitz and Berry ride each
of the routes several times with
and without the bus drivers until
they are satisfied that the routes
meet all the criteria for safety and
efficiency. "The job is tedious
and time-consuming," said
Jackowitz, "but it's all worth-
while when you see five busloads
of smiling campers roll into the
campus."

JWV 'Outraged' Over Engine Sale Jerusalem Celebrates Temple Beth Orr's New
Rabbi Coming from Canada
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Jewish War Veterans com-
mander of the U.S.A., in a mes-
sage to President Carter, wrote
that the group "is outraged over
the proposal to sell Italy eight
engines for the purpose of
powering naval frigates for sale
to Iraq, a country that the U.S.
has no official ties to and that has
continually aided and abetted
terrorism.
"We view the contemplation of
the sale of these engines with the
gravest concern as the latest
attempt at the ill-advised if we
sell them what they want, they
will love us' philosophy. We have
seen, time and time again, that
this policy doesn't work," wrote
Harris B. Stone.
"The recent terrorist outrage
at Kibbutz Misgav Am in Israel,
perpetrated by an Iraqi backed
faction of the PLO, is the latest
example of Iraqi scorn for human
life. The United States of
America must not 'reward' the
abettors of murder with engines
that will substantially upgrade
their naval capabilities and
therefore pose a threat to Amer-
ican interests in the Persian Gulf.
"We demand that the export
licenses for Iraq's frigate engines
be revoked immediately."
Yom Yerushalayim
Jerusalem Day, commemorating
the re-unification of Jerusalem
following the 1967 Six-Day War.
was celebrated May 14, the 13th
Year (Bar Mitzvah) of the united
city.
Herschel W. BlumberK. who
will be national chairman of the
1981 UJA campaign, said: "As
the Russians and Arabs orches-
trate another UN resolution
threatening to divide Jerusalem,
we stand together to show an
indifferent and cynical world that
Jerusalem the physical and
spiritual Jerusalem Jerusalem
of gold is indivisible.
'Time' Story 'Supports' PLO
Rabbi Donald S. Gerber of
Temple Israel in Ottawa, Canada,
where he had served for seven
years, was elected spiritual leader
of Temple Beth Orr in Coral
Springs.
The 34-year-old graduate of
Wesleyan University, Conn., was
ordained following graduation at
the Hebrew Union College-Jew-
ish Institute of Religion, Cincin-
nati, has been active with the
Canadian Council of Christians
and Jews, the East Asian
Refugee Committee in Ottawa.
Soviet Jewry committee, Ki-
wanis. Children's Camp and
adult education. The Svracuse-
bom rabbi has been a contributor
to the Ottawa Journal, and
religion editor and columnist for
another Canadian publication,
Preview.
Rabbi Gerber, his wife Bonnie,
and their three children will move
to Coral Springs in July when he
begins serving the congregation
which has had Rabbi David
Goldstein as interim spiritual
leader. Temple Beth Orr con-
siders itself to be the only Reform
congregation in the Coral
Springs- Tamarac- Margate-
Coconut Creek- North Lauder-
dale-Sunrise and Lauderhill area.
Dr. Franklin H. Littell. in-
ternationally-known member of
the National Institute on the
Holocaust, in a recent article in
the Jewish Times of Greater
Northeast Philadelphia, declares
that the feature story in the April
14 issue of Time magazine on
"The Palestinians: Key to
Mideast Peace" "is straight
down the line in idealogical
support of the PLO."
Hi' writes: "The cover story
which interprets rather than
reports, omits important facts
and twists evidence presented
. The article is replete with the
customary charges of anti-Israel
propagandists. Item: The
Balfour Declaration was issued,
the writers say, in an' effort to
gain Jewish support during
World War I.' The ad-
ministration in Washington
cannot deal with what the writers
term Begins 'outrageous ob-
struction to peace' because of the
'realities of election-year politics'
and the Jewish vote.'
"Nowhere is there mention of
the Christian convictions which
made the Balfour Declaration
possible as well as timely.
Nowhere is there mention of the
strong Christian support for
Israel, just as dangerous to any
Administration that appeases
terrorism and war-mongers as

the Jewish vote." No, the writers
settle for common, banal anti-
Semitic interpretations: It's the
Jews who caused the trouble: it's
the Jews who threaten future
trouble."
Littell, who a foremost
authority on the Holocaust,
debunks much of the magazine's
distortions including the item
that King Hussein of Jordan was
"iisurnintr PLO power" in 1970
and the PLO was "forced to move
from Jordan to Lebanon.
Beginning in 1975, they took an
active role in the Lebanese civil
war."
The truth is, declares Littell.
that the PLO was the primary
cause of the Lebanese "civil war"
. destroying the Lebanese
Republic and made that land in
all but name a province of
"'Greater Syria."

AJCongress Re-elects Squadron
Howard M. Squadron of New
York was re-elected president of
the American Jewish Congres
iAJCongress) at its national bi-
ennial convention early this
month during which the 300
delegates received a message
trom President Carter, were pre-
sented reports of growing Arab
influence, and heard AFL-CIO
President Lane Kirkland suggest
the U.S. government should be
the only importer of oil to break
the OPEC stranglehold, and stop
paying ransom to the Arab oil
states.
Among other national officers
elected at the convention were
three from South Florida as vice
presidents: Mollie Gersh, Sylvia
Kaplan and Rabbi Ralph
Kingsley.
President Carter cited
American support for Israel as "a
^guiding principle of our national
I policy," and "deeply rooted in
our national interest" our
mutual goal is a lasting and com-
prehensive peace in the Middle
Last that will give the security it
has long sought and deeply
[deserves."
Israel's Ambassador to the
I U.S. Kphraim Evron lauded
President Carter's choice of Sen.
Kdmund Muskie as Secretary of
State to succeed Cyrus Vance
[who resigned in disagreement
[with Carter's decision to attempt
i he April rescue of hostages held
[captive in Teheran. Evron cited
[Muskie s "long record of friend-
ship, understanding and sym-
pathy for Israel" and his con-
isisient support of requests for aid
[to Israel. Extending best wishes
[in him. Evron declared: "Israel
[has no better friend than the
IS., and the U.S. has no more
(loyal ally than Israel."

however. A spokesman for the
department said it was not "100

terrorist raids against Israel is to
condemn the terrorist act, but

Middle East do not deal with
Jewish-owned companies or send
Jewish employees to the Arab
world for fear of economic
reprisal.
Will Maslow, AJCongress
general counsel, reported the
growth of Arab investments in
Florida properties and other
American equities. 1-eonard
Davis of American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC)
revealed the "intensive" pro-
Arab lobbying on Capitol Hill
being carried out by U.S. cor-
porations involved in Arab trade
and others.
In his own report, AJCongress
President Squadron charged that
there was a "direct link between
Western Europe's growing ac-
ceptance of the PLO and the
upsurge of Arab terrorist attacks
against Israeli civilians." He
said: "The self-destructive policy
of appeasement did not work
against Hitler in the 1930s. And
it will not work against Arafat
and his henchmen in the 1980s. If
there is to be peace in the Middle
East, it can be based only on the
Camp David accords and not on
any attempt to bypass them by
making the PLO a party to the
negotiations."
During the concurrent
Women's Division sessions. Chia
Herzwig of Baltimore and Marion
A. Wilen of Philadelphia were
elected co-presidents succeeding
Leona F. Chanin of New York
who served as president for five
years. The latter warned that the
United Nations Decade for
Women to be held in Copenhagen
in July would result in "virulent
anti-Israel declarations,
sabotaging progress in meeting
women's needs."
Mrs. Chanin asserted that the
conference in Copenhagen has
accepted a demand by the PLO to
include a document that attacks
Zionism and Israel while calling
for a review of the political
situation of Palestinian women.
Rep. Stephen Solarz ot New
York, addressing the women.
said that if emigration restric-
tions on Syrian Jews were lifted
"it would make the Exodus look
leisurely." He noted that the sur
vival of Jews in turbulent pans
of the world, like Ethiopia and
Iran and elsewhere, "depend on
our willingness to speak out in
. their behalf.'____

RARE JEWISH FACTS
from
J&B RARE SCOTCH

Q: Who named the Turkey*?
A: Luis de Torres who called it -TUKKI -
The Hebrew word for peacock!
The first of Columbus' crew to set foot in the
"New World"' was Luis de Torres, a Jewish
crewman, a master of languages and one of
Columbus' trusted friends. Thinking that any
natives they might meet may be descendants of
the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Columbus sent
de Torres ashore first, to find out if the natives
were friendly and whether they spoke Hebrew
or some other known language of the day
The beauty and richness of the land captivated '
de Torres' imagination and he prevailed upon
Columbus to let him settle there. In writing
to his friends back home' de Torres used the
Hebrew word for peacockTUKKIto describe
a new bird he encountered. And through
usage, the American bird came to be called a
Turkey (probably because there is no known
Hebrew word for Gobble Gobble).
A NOT-SO-RARE FACT...
A big part of Jewish warmth and affection
is to 'open the house' when mishpocha.

Wynmoor Villager's Daughter Writes of Auschwitz Visit

Judith Manelis, daughter of
Mrs. Mildred Manelis of
Wynmoor Village, Coconut
Creek, is director of editorial
services for the National United
Jewish Appeal in New York City.
She visited Poland as part of a
UJA-sponsored American Jewish
Press Association mission to
Eastern Europe and Israel. On
her return she wrote of her ex-
perience for the Jewish News of
Metropolitan New Jersey.
Excerpts from the article which
was distributed to other
American Jewish papers are
printed here with permission of
the Jewish News:
I am home now, away from the
destruction and the redemption. I
feel transformed as I knew I
would, but so totally that I find it
hard to assimilate all that I feel.
Fifteen days together in our
small tightly knit group of 18
our Choi (Life) Group. Fifteen
days of feeling my Jewishness
as never before .
I am trying to sort out all that
I have felt during these 15 days
... I see Pinchas, caretaker of
Warsaw's Jewish cemetery,
wiping away a tear as he waved
goodbye to our departing group.
I see Mr. Krupka of the Jewish
Historical Institute of Warsaw
standing with dignity amid boxes
and boxes of Jewish identity
cards and the records of
destroyed Jewish communities
throughout Poland and other
lands. .
Cracow is. a beautiful city. Let
us see the university that tried so
hard to exclude Jews, the
university whose few Jewish
students were tormented and
reviled. The city of Cracow was
not destroyed by the Nazis, our
'guide said ... ,
On to Auschwitz ... We
walked toward the camp itself.
Looking up I saw a familiar
scene: the barbed wire fence, the
watch tower, the railroad tracks
and the saying over the entrance
way, "Arbeit Macht Frei (Work
Makes Man Free). Why was
everything so familiar to me?
Had I been here before? Only in
books and movies and night-
mares.
We entered the camp. There
was no gate to close behind us.
The Nazis were gone.
Here was all the evidence that
was needed: what we had come to
see. The human hair. The stacks
of eye glasses. The shoes. The
piles of suitcases stacked with
abandon as the Jewish bodies of
men, women and children had
been stacked.
Suitcases with neatly printed
names, addresses and
destinations. But there was no
destination beyond Auschwitz
and Birkenau, Maidanek and
Bergen-Belsen. Steiner, Gold-
berg, Leventhal, Cohen,
Rubinstein, Lubinsky, name
after familiar name. Dare I look
We do business
the right way.

too closely? I might find my own

and relatives.
It was snowing. Somehow the
harshness of the weather was
fitting. We wanted to feel cold.
We wanted to suffer. It would
never make us one with the Jews
of Auschwitz. It would never
allow us to feel their pain, their
sense of desperation, their
loneliness, their death. Nothing
would. But it brought us closer to
their spirits.
More than one and a half
million Jews met their deaths in
Auschwitz. The visit to Ausch-
witz was over. It was time now to
travel the few miles to Birkenau,
the sister camp down the road
where most of the real death and
destruction took place.
A Nazi mockery. Gas cham-
bers that looked like showers.
Chimneys that provided no heat.
We walked through the snow-
covered, blood-soaked soil of
Birkenau to lay flowers on two of
the 19 plaques which describe the
horrors of that place. Two
plaques in Hebrew and Yiddish.
The 19 plaques were covered
with snow. Only Sam Abramson,
our Polish expert from UJA who
had been to Birkenau before,
knew where to find the Yiddish
and Hebrew plaques. We wiped
away the snow, placed our
flowers on the ground and
proceeded with the brief service I
had prepared. I had chosen the
simple words of Gerda Klein,
Holocaust survivor and author,
to begin:
After Gerda's word, a poem
and then kaddish. We had come.
We had seen. And we wept.
We turned to walk back to the
bus. We climbed on the bus. It
would not move.
Though we wanted to leave
this camp of death ... we knew
we would never be able to tear it
out of ourselves. A part of it
would remain with us all our
lives.
It was growing late. We would
have to push the bus. We took
our places at the rear of the bus
and began to push. We looked to
our right and saw the
crematorium. We looked to the
sky and saw darkness falling. We
pushed harder.
I thought of the Nazis and
their Jewish victims, the horror
of that place and the six million
who never had a chance to escape
their destination of death, and I
yelled "Jew power. Let's show
those Nazis Jew power." We
pushed again and again. The bus
moved. It was free. So were we.
Totally relieved, the group of
18, of Chai, piled on to the bus.
And this time, the bus moved,
away from the crematorium,
away from the desolation, away
from the horror into the falling
shadows of the night.

visible in swirling snow flakes. I The fought chills my being. My
were the barracks that housed
the inmates. We walked to a
nearby barracks to took inside.
There stood row upon row of
three-tier wooden bunk beds,
primitive by any standard. And
suddenly a picture of emaciated
inmates hanging over the sides of
these beds came into focus. The
beds were emptv. but in my
mind's eyes I filled them up with
emaciated Jewish bodies. We
examined the chimney and
heating system.
mother was only 42 years old. My
father was kind, wise and strong.
My friends were gay, chattering,
bubbly girls. That was my world.
It perished there."
The wind howled. The snow
continued unabatedly. The cold
bit and chaffed our faces and
froze our tears.
"/ want to remember them as I
knew them. They would have
been glad that you came, that
you cared, that you wept for what
we all lost there. ."
Gladys Daren, president of the
Women's Division of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, led a delegation from
her division to the two-day
Spring Leadership Forum in
Tampa.
The sessions from Monday
morning. May 19, through the
following day, were developed by
the United Jewish Appeal,
Florida Regional Women's
Division in cooperation with the
National Women's Division of
the Council of Jewish Fed-
erations.
Joining Mrs. Daren at work-
shops and special meetings were
Fran Smith, Lillian Hirsch, Min
Gruman, Lee Dreiling, and
Women's Division Director Jan
Salit.
The workshops they attended
included ways and means of
training speakers, running a
fund-raising meeting, joining
missions to Israel. They also
received updates on Middle East
and world issues: Jewish
women's perspectives of the
issues, and Judaica programs.
