And in Lebanon, and over Syria, two U.S. planes
were shot down with one American pilot killed, and
another captured by the Syrians who said they would
hold him as a "prisoner of war" until "the war ends."
Earlier that week eight Marines were killed when a
Moslem-fired mortar, presumably aimed at a nearby
Lebanon army post, hit the Marine outpost.
WITH SYRIA escalating the violence and
threatening more attacks on the U.S. and Israeli forces,

reports, fear "a war with Syria, declared or un-
Some officers believe that the U.S. cause would be
better served by replacing the Marines with an Army

Editorially, The New York Times notes that
-nothing the United States or Israel are willing to risk
can alter the balance of forces in Lebanon, push Syria
out or reduce its future influence over Lebanon."
Meanwhile, with Yasser Arafat and his PLO group in
disarray, there are fears that the Syrians could set up a
lackey rival group which might try to stir up trouble in
the West Bulk.
Defense Minister Moshe Arena said the West Bank
territory is essential to Israel's security. He said Israel
has been in the West Bank for 16 years and there is a
"high probability" it would still be there in another 16
years. He said it is unrealistic "to expect King Hussein
of Jordan to join negotiations with Israel, or. if he does,
to agree to any division of the territory.

the Federation, through its di-
rector, Rabbi Albert B. Schwartz,
has been consulting with the
community's Rabbinic leaders on
the programs to be presented at
the Friday evening Jan. 6 ser-

Rabbi Ballons proclamation in
support of UJA follows:
"BECAUSE we advocate a

for all Jews in order to strengthen
our faith in the Almighty, our
love of Torah and our identifica-
tion with the Jewish people
through the synagogue and full
participation in Jewish life;
"And because we believe that
Judaism has answers to the
questions which challenge the
Jewish spirit and only know-
ledgeable Jews can answer these

their Jewish identity and link
themselves inseparably to their
tradition by word and deed to
bear witness to the brit by
embracing Torah and study and

Jewish community to affirm its

Jews who value and practice

"And because we understand
that Jews who further the causes
of justice and peace through the
performance of Tzedakah, the ap-
propriate allocation of spiritual
and material resources;
"And because Jews who honor
the significant occasions of their
life with entrance into the Bet
Knesset, the house of gathering,
"We therefore proclaim that

members of our Jewish commun-
ity to make such proper observ-

their homes that shall pay them,
and the Jewish community at
large, honor in the performance of
deeds worthy of our heritage."
Already planned are guest
speakers for several of the syn-
agogues. The executive board of

European Jews Said to Be

The 1.35 million Jews of
Western Europe find them-
selves in a paradoxical
situation. Living in free,
democratic societies, they
struggle against a "spirit-

In an address at a session of
the 52nd General Assembly of
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions here, Goldmann said the
Jews in France and their institu-
tions have come under vicious at-
tack from anti-Semitic elements,
especially since Israel's invasion
of Lebanon in June, 1982. She
pointed out that the attacks
require that up to five percent of
the Jewish community budgets
be expended for sophisticated
security devices.

icipate in all areas of the coun-
try's economic and political life,
not only in commerce, arts and
the professions, but also as fac-
tory workers, and in government
posts from Cabinet Ministers to
members of the police force.
But because the economic
downturn in Western Europe has
forced reductions in government
subsidies at a time when the need
for social services and Jewish
education is expanding, new
burdens have been placed on the
French Jewish leadership and the
American Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee. To meet these
needs, Goldmann stressed the
importance of building bridges to
the North American Jewish com-
munity and to Israel.

F"dy. Decembers

Escalating War
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir must
now face the tough task ahead of con-
vincing the everyday Israeli that he did not
make any secret commitments with
President Reagan in Washington last week
that means a deeply-involved U .S. -Israeli
military arrangement, including possible
joint action against Syria.
If nothing else were needed, the terrorist
bombing in Jerusalem Tuesday, for which
the Palestine Liberation Organization has
already taken "credit," should be reminder
enough that (1) it is dangerous business for
the United States to be escalating its
military role in Lebanon; and (2) it is
equally dangerous business for Israel to
enter into an active alliance with the VS. in
that role.
The action of the United Nations in-
volving, once again, saving the "face" of
Yasir Arafat and giving him the op-
portunity, a second time now, to flash V-
for-victory signs even as he leaves the
rubble of defeat behind him should teU
Israel, if Israel needs being told, that the
warring Arab factions in the Middle East
are their own worst enemy.
They need no other enemies, American or
Israeli, to help put their house in order.
What can come from such actions will be
little more than new anguish in
Washington or Jerusalem or possibly in
both cities.
Americans have been the first to suffer
the consequences of not knowing precisely
what the Reagan Administration has in
mind in the Middle East. It would be a
tragedy of incalculable proportion if Israel
to follow suit.

< ',!! ,li)l Will*
The Volunteer
The author is the popular columnist of the Jew-
ish Journal Like hundreds of others who give
freely of their time, talent and money. Bill
Katzberg has been a volunteer for many years.
Currently he, as he has for several years, serves in
a leadership role with the Greater Margate Area
UJA Committee, and is, among his many other
activities, a member of the board of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort LauderdaU. This
article is reprinted, with permission, from the
Jewish Journal
It's that time of the year again! The Jewish
community is girding for 'another opening of
another show.' The show, of course, is that annual
'anguish of the volunteer,' lovingly called United
Jewish Appeal.
"Why should this be an anguish?" you are in-
nocently asking.
Well, if you ask such a question, you've likely
never been a volunteer assigned to ring doorbells
in an 'enlightened' Jewish community.
But wait.Let s set the record straight. It's not
all a heartache. Not at all. Indeed, there are
moments of joy and satisfaction, later topped by
the frosting on the cake, an imposing sum col-
lected-pledged in behalf of the Jewish people. In
the end, a triumph of faith over cynicism.
Yet in between, there are moments of predicta-
ble distress that would try the soul of the neigh-
borhood angel, the righteous tzadih. As a UJA
volunteer, you're supposed to smile, say "Thank
you" and move on to the next doorbell silently
gnashing your dental gumwork. Having been
involved for years in the same volunteer capacity,
by now you've developed a hard outer shell of
indifference as you persevere to the next building
undaunted. Metaphysically, you bleed. You tell
yourself "It's like bonkus and in time it will
purify your soul."
In truth, when Passover-time rolls around and
the UJA campaign is over, you're ready to face
the wet sauna of another Florida summer. With
your internal conditioning, it's easy.
The larger fact is that the UJA volunteers in
Sunrise, Margate. Tamarac, Plantation, are
themselves emmis-dicher inspirations, as the
preparations proceed to top last year's $4,100,000
drive of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale. They breathe ruh-ach into the
campaign and neither wind nor rain nor cruel un-
concern will deter these tzedakah gatherers' from
their appointed rounds.
Aa in previous years, the volunteers an
guaranteed to hear another crop of immaculate
excuses. There are the ever dependable ones like:
"I give in New York or Schenectady" Last
year's popularity winner was: "My husband
takes care of this in his business'' ... or "My
wife gives to UJA through Hadassah" ... or "I
give to an orphanage in Jerusalem ." If you're
inclined to say "baloney." Don't. This is where
your intestinal fortitude comes in. Moreover,
some volunteers are asked to come back two or
three times. The state-of-the-art volunteer in 1964
will possess controlled temper.
Although it costs Federation approximately $6
to register a contribution through its compute* -
maze, people with a new Oldsmobile in the drive-
way will offer vou $10 and the volunteer is ex-
William Katzberg
pected to be properly grateful. In his-her heat,
the volunteer knows this is equal to the contribu-
tion offered by little old ladies in walker* on
Washington Avenue in Miami... all in crumnto
dollar bills. ^^
The confounding contradiction here is tiat
most 'enlightened' Jews know and have read of
Israel's economic crisis; of her need to garrisons]
army in Lebanon; of her ballooning inflatkra.
"This is the year we must increase our help," you
would conclude and be prophetically right.
How then do you impart the sense of urgency
to the Goldbergs and Bernsteins on the 2nd floor
of Building 11? How do you unlock them from
their froz n 'chai' offering?
When you review the history of Jewish philan-
thropy you know that 'Jewish giving' is almoati
reflex action We have a record of unparalleled
generosity unmatched by civilized man. The
key, today, is to re-kindle the 'giving-perception
of the average family: to raise the audio; to
sharpen the TV image. It's not easy when other
matters vie for attention.
In the trenches of this effort is the local volun-
teer who is doing his-her thing, be it'door-to-door
or via the breakfast-luncheon route, whatever As
a sensitive Jew, it should be one's obligation to
make the volunteer's task a little lighter by a land
work, a helping hand and a more generous check,
if possible.
The 'Jewish tax' we talk about in communitiei
across the land is our way of extending Jewai
hands across the seas; of sharing good fortune
and parnussa- of helping keep the nation Israel
viable and survrvable. We are re-living the role
of 'brother's keeper.' If your neighbor or friend
cannot understand the need of our self-imposed
'Jewish tax,' sit him down over s cup of coffee. If
he-she dredges up an excuse (other than persons'
need) make them face up to 'the cause' not tie
cop-out. We, who have been privileged to witnea
the birth of a Jewish homeland in our lifetime, on
do no less.
And at you need any additional insight about
the cause called 'UJA.' examine the determina-
tion and character of the UJA volunteers in your
community. Look them over. They are usually the moat devoted of our people. They who
ring the doorbells, organize the meetings, take
abuse and offer you the pledge-card, should them
selves be honored And why not? They seekno
thanks, only an open door and s friendly ear And
that, fellow Jews, is where we all come in.

traced his own family history,
finding relatives who lived in the

both exciting and enjoyable for
both audiences and hoped he had
stimulated their interest in seek-

aining wounds on his back,

I There were several attacks on

it was "unlikely that they (the
attackers) were Arabs." An Arab
bus was set afire on the southern
outskirts of Nablus shortly after
midnight. The driver did not
know who was responsible.
Jewish settlers denied any
knowledge of these incidents,
though they admitted that spirits
were running high and that many
Jews were demanding revenge for
the attack on Stern and the rock-
throwing. Arab youths stoned
Israeli vehicles in various parts of
the territory. In one case, a
civilian driver fired into the air to
disperse them; in another
soldiers fired into the air.

In times of crisis,
who can America rely on
in the Middle East?

Israel has been a close ally of the United
Slates since 1948.
In fact, last year Israel sided with us in the
United Nations more often than any other nation-
including Great Britain, France and Wst Germany.
Yet there are those who are working to dis-
credit Israel in the eyes of Congress, the media
arid die American public. .
The Arab lobby has created a new political
organization called MEI*RC-The Middle East
Policy and Reaeatch Corporation. MEBKRC is
"educating" American corporate executives, eape-
eiatty those doing business in the Middle East.^
as to where their political contributions through
corporate IKCs (political action commntoes)
should be going.
Israel Wt be the only country that wi!l
suffer as a result of this.
Nothing would do more damage to.the strate-
gic interestfof the Umted States in the Middk East
than the abandonment or even the slightest weak-
ening of our ties with Israel.
Vfc, the members of The National F*C
tant ally is helped by our political system. Not hin-
dered by it. .
Natf*C does this by helping to elect officials
in all 50 states who realize that Israelis survival is
vital to our own.
But this takes a lot more than hard work.
h takes money. Money to counter the nearly
$30 million spent by corporate f*Cs m the 1982
Important organizations like the UJA. the
ADL, The American Jewish Commioee and
AU*C amnol make political conaibutioas.
So please join us. ftu'U not only be helping
one of our most important allies, you;B atao be
helping another nation as well. Amenca.

Support Group
Q aids lonely Widoi
The Jewish Family Service of Broward County, i M
stituent agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater fa
Lauderdale, has prepared a series of articles based on the kin
of counseling and casework conducted by it.s staff,
professional social workers. Since all personal service offered!
the JFS is on a nighty-confidential basis, the articles, writtj
by caseworkers, eliminate names and specific information
could identify the person or persons aided by JFS.
group formed and they found
that all members had very si]
feelings; great confusion,
disorganization, helplessness
loneliness, anger and loss of
identity. We talked about these!
feelings and also about bow *
of the members had such dif-
ficulty with other couples and
friends. Although they did hivj
friends when their mates wen
alive, they now felt like the thi
wheel. They also felt rejectedi
misunderstood. These were
common feelings that mostly all
group members identified wki. I
As time went on, the group
became a real support network |
Members exchanged phone
numbers and began to develop
relationships outside of group
Although they did have to wort
through their feelings of um,!
helplessness and redefine their
roles, it helped to have groupi
people who could understand
what it was like to experience
such s traumatic loss.
Mrs. R. called JFS for her
mother. Mrs. R's father died
about three months ago and Mrs.
R. was very concerned about her
mother. Mrs. X. had very little
appetite, had trouble sleeping,
left the house only when
necessary and seemed quite sad.
Mrs. R. continued by stating that
her mother and father had been
very close and very active. Since
the death of her husband. Mrs. X.
has become despondent. Mrs. R.
that it was time that her mother
seek outside help. As the
caseworker assigned to the case,
I asked Mm. R. if I could speak
with her mother. I spoke with
Mrs. X. and set up an ap-
pointment with her.
Mrs. X. appeared on time for
her appointment. She appeared
depressed but was verbal during
our session. She stated that she
was very lonely. She had been
married for the last 48 years and
she was not used to being
without her husband. She felt
confused and disorganized. She
did not know what to do first.
She was used to having her
husband around to help her.
After seeing Mrs. X. alone for
the first three sessions, the
caseworker decided to begin a
Widow-Widowers Support
Group. The caseworker became
aware of the great need for these
people who felt devastated by the
loss of their significant other. The
JFS maintains three offices in Broward County. Pe._

I think all members raaliiad
that the hurt and sadness they
experienced was something thn|
had to deal with and that i
and no one could take it away,
but it helped to have the un-
derstanding and the time to i
it out. They also had to leant
to have time to develop new
relationships and new ways to
enrich their lives.

This column is a service of the
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County, a constituent
agency of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale. It
will appear weekly in The Jewish
Floridian of Greater Fort
lauderdale. Questions may be
directed to JFS by calling one of
JFS offices whose telephone
numbers are listed at the end of
the article.
Q. T.S. Lauderdale Lakes /
lent in a claim to Medicare for
some surgery and for doctor's
visits in the hospital They
rejected the $2000 surgery saying
that not enough information was
sent. I called the doctor's office
and they said they sent in an
operative report. I also sent in a
copy of the operative report. Now
the claim has been rejected
saying it would not pay for this
surgery for assistant surgeons.
This was not an assistant. What
can I do?
A. We called Medicare and this
is what happened. The first time,
they did indeed need an operative
report. However, when they re-
processed the claim they listed
the surgeon as the assistant
surgeon in error. Blue Cross Blue
Shield Medicare said they would
immediately reprocess the claim
correctly, so a check should be

Windows shattered by gun at B'nai Jacob
Two windows were shattered by gunfire at Temple B'nai Jacob,
2177 So. Congress Ave., West Palm Beach, during the evening hours
on Monday, Dec. 5. The incident was reported to police by Jacob
Frant, temple president.
Neighbors who were questioned by police detectives reported that
they heard sounds at 10 p.m. that evening which they had attributed
to firecrackers. Upon investigation, the police discovered marks on the
ceiling of the temple that were made by bullets. They have not been
able to locate the spent shells but all indications point to automatic
hand guns as the weapon used.
Previous incidents of vandalism have been reported to the police.
According to Frant, these involved broken reflector lights which
illuminate the building at night. When the bulbs were replaced, they
were broken again, Frant said.
"When I walked into the temple yesterday and saw the shattered
windows, it tore me apart," stated Frant. "I can't imagine that there
are still people around today who would do something like this. There
are people with sick minds. This is a house of prayer and it's a shame
to see some people want to destroy it."
The matter is under investigation. _____

Molly's Pilgrim explores
immigrant problems
on it. She saw doctors in
November and December and she
submitted the claims to
Medicare. They rejected them
saying that she was on HMO.
What can she do to get the bills
paid for?
A. Send a letter to Medicare
explaining the situation. Send a
copy of the enrollment and also
the disenro'lment from the HMO.
Let us know when they reply.
They should fix their computer to
not reject the claims since she is
not a member of the HMO.

referring tot I would like another
copy to help me decide what kind

A. The Department of
Insurance has put out an update

new one is dated August, 1983. It
lists insurance companies that
cover Medicare beneficiaries with
supplemental insurance. Just call

Molly'a Pilgrim. By Barbara Cohen. Illustrated
by Michael J. Deraney. Lothrop, Lee and Shepard
Books. 1983. Ages 6-10. $9.50.
Reviewed by Rene Rotanberg
Imagine, if you will, that you are a young child,
about eight or nine-years-old, living in the early
years of this century. You are a new student in an
elementary school in a small town, not a big city.
The problems of being a new pupil are com-
pounded by the fact that you are a new immigrant
from Russia, so your accent and your clothes are
different from those of your classmates.
This is the situation in Molly'a Pilgrim, a
thoughtful sensitively written book by Barbara
Cohen. Molly is the new student who is the object
of taunts and jeers by classmates because of her
different speech patterns, ignorance of such
American customs as the holiday of
Thanksgiving, as well as being one of very few
Jews in the school. The teacher, a compassionate,
understanding woman, is keenly aware of Molly's
need and desire to be like her peers and makes
every effort to aid her in adjusting to the new
Molly's mother creates a Pilgrim doll, dressed
as a Russian girl, for an assignment given to the
class at Thanksgiving time. The teacher's ex-
planation of the similarity between a modern-day
immigrant like Molly to the Pilgrims of long-ago,
as well as the description of the historical con-
nection between the festival of Sukkot and
Thanksgiving, serve to instill in the children an
understanding and awareness of Molly's unique
The book is clearly written in easily un-
derstandable language. A young child reading it
can easily identify with Molly's desire to be like
everyone else.
The soft, monochromatic illustrations clearly
place the time frame of the story and also enhance
the text. This book is a must for families with
young children, as well as for school libraries. It
can be read to those too young to read. It has
much that can stimulate learning activities and
experiences in classrooms, especially those
schools in which there are new immigrants.
