ing, and above all else, the collective historical
memory of the victory under God's providence of
the few over the many, the pure over the impure.
and the righteous over the wicked.
Yet, the holiday of Chanukah reflects a par
ticularly relevant message for the Jewish com
munity in contemporary American society. The
festival commemorates not only a physical and
military, battle, not only the fight for religious
freedom, but, in addition, the clash between two
mat cultures, that of the Hellenic world, and
that of the Jewish heritage.
At the time of the historical setting of
Chanukah, Greek culture had overwhelmed the
world of the Mediterranean basin and the middle
east. The glories of Greece its art, literature,
philosophy, sculpture, drama, architecture
seemed to be irresistible to the countries into
which they had penetrated. The cosmopolitan
nature of Helenistic culture and its vision of the
individual and the centrality of beauty and art in
the most sensual sense, when supported by
political power, was like a magnet to the wealthy,
educated classes of the East.
In addition, Hellenism was supra-national,
strengthening bonds between different peoples
and tending to eradicate ethnic loyalities, and in-
dividual patterns of cultural expression. The local
culture had the choice of either adopting the
Hellenistic vision and reality, or losing its most
sensitive and thoughtful leadership.
In this extraordinarily attractive universalism,
Judaism stood out as a unique religion, a unique
people and a unique culture, basing itself on the
revealed truths of its Torah, and the moral and
ethical heritage bequeathed to it by generations
from the time of Abraham on. The struggle thus
was one of particularism vs. universalism, the
right of a minority culture not to be overwhelmed
and obliberated by the tyranny of the majority,
the survival of distinctivism and uniqueness in a

Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies
Projects Future Jewish Communal Needs
With the advent of the
new tax law facing
Americans in 1986 and the
changing needs in the
Jewish community, Jacob
Brodzki, chairman of the
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale's
Foundation of Jewish
Philanthropies has announc-
ed an intensive program in
the coming months to help
insure the continuity of vital
Federation services, that
will be beneficial to both the
donor as well as the
Having recently returned
from the Council of Jewish
Federation's 54th General
Assembly in Washington, D.C.,
Brodzki, a board member and
former Federation president,
when interviewed by the Floridian
stated that "more than 102 major
Federations, which compose the
National Conference of Philan-
thropic Endowment, made a total
commitment to help perpetuate
the values and traditions for
which so many have sacrificed to
make world Jewry strong,
through gifts to the Foundation."
He further emphasized that
"Here in Greater Fort Lauder-
dale, we have set about to create a
new interest in our endeavor to
receive new donors, and show the
need by informative and educa-
tional programs recognizing the
community's changing structure
and new demands. By creating an
endowment or philanthropic fund
with the Foundation, you become
hopes, dreams and faith forward
to endless tomorrows."
In referring to the *86 role, he
stressed that his goal is to project
future Jewish communal needs of
our community and design an B
proach to develop the financial
resources to meet these needs.
Nationally he said that 88 percent
of all the requests by donors go to
Jewish local institutions in an all-
out effort to unite Jewish heritage
"Currently, we have 21 gifts in
the Foundation, and we have
one in spirit with past generations
of Jews whose generous gifts are
today's legacy. And with future

of joint studies "in the hope of
evolving a trans-denominational
approach to marriage and cover-
sion." He urged the adoption of a
resolution at the convention sup-
porting the principle of "con-
tinuous dialogue" among all
religious branches of Juidaism.
The process of joint study of the
marriage and conversion issues.
Schindler continued "has a worth
all its own." In such a process, he
told delegates, "I am certain
Reform (Judaism) will not be
found wanting provided only
that the 'how' and not the 'who'
becomes the object of the
scholars' quest, and every group
accords the other respect."
Whatever the results of such an
effort, Schindler continued, "the
Jewish world must know this:
Reform is an adjective, not a
noun. The noun is Jew. And so we
are Jews." He deplored those Or-
thodox spokesmen who "presum-
ed to know just which rites and
prayers are and are not acceptable
to the Almighty."

Too Much Like Christmas
There was a time when Chanukah was, well, just Chanukah.
Some latkes, choice of sour cream or applesauce, a little dreidle
playing, a few songs, guessing how much Zaide would give in gelt.
No Passover or Sukkot, with their Biblical origins and elaborate
observances, but nice. Families sharing joy. being close, a warm
respite before the reality of winter's harsh onset.
But then, \o, came the commercialization of Christmas. Which
begat the Christmasization of Chanukah. Which begat Hebrew
songs to the tune of "Silent Night." Which begat Christmas trees
make up to look Jewish. Chanukah bushes.
Christmas, which had been s sharing, loving celebration of a
solemn religious event, had become big business. TV loved it for
the commercials it brought in, stores loved it for the shoppers it
brought in. The holiday season got longer, the hype got more in-
tense. The religion, however, sort of got lost in the shuffle. And
the real Chanukah sort of got lost in that shuffle.
Poor, little latked. drekUed. gelted Chanukah simply couldn't
keep up. No Santa Claus to ho-ho-ho, no colored lights to flash,
flash, flash, no long stockings to stuff, stuff, stuff. At first, it tried
to do the best it could with what it had. And then it tried to do
It borrowed. If they send Christmas cards, then we'll send
Chanukah cards. If they sing songs about the 12 nights of
Christmas, then we'll give a gift on each of the eight days of
Chanukah. And on it went until Chanukah became, well, sort of
our version of their Christmas.
Some saw that as a good thing, a positive step towards increas-
ing religious understanding and better relations between Chris-
tians and Jews. Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, for one, didn't.
Eckstein, president of the Hoiyland Fellowship of Christians
and Jews and an expert on Christian-Jewish issues, doesn't think
the Christmasization of Chanukah is such a good thing. Though he
also doesn't think it's gotten too bad. Yet.
Eckstein first looked st the problem in 1978, the third year in
this century in which Christmas and the first day of Chanukah fell
on the same date. That chronological coincidence led to an at-
tempt by some to link the holidays even closer than they were
already being connected. It was a linkage that Eckstein thought
then, and thinks now, is "at best tenuous."
"There is s relationship on the calendar level Christmas and
Chanukah happen about the same time. But theologically, there's
not much comparison at all. The holidays have completely dif-
But while the motifs may differ. Eckstein admits, in the minds
of some Jews, the holidays look, or are made to look, an awful lot
alike. One reason for that, he says, is because Jews want to fit in.
To the Americans.
It is virtually impossible for Jews in America to be insulated
from the influence of the Christmas season. Jews, too, get caught
up in the spirit.
"Chanukah used to be much more home-oriented. But the
Jewish response to all the public Christmas doings has been to
transform Chanukah into a public celebration. It's a way of identi-
fying as an American. It's like eating turkey on Thanksgiving.
But really, it's totally different. Thanksgiving is dearly an
American holiday. It's cultural. Christmas, however, com-
memorates the birth of Jesus. It's religious."
And because it is, Eckstein thinks it's important Jews be careful
in what aspects of Christmas they try to incorporate into
"I have no trouble with sending cards or giving gifts every
night What I am opposed to are things like s Chanukah bush. The
Christinas tree is definitely a Christian symbol. For Jews to have
one, I think, is totally unconscienable."
He also opposes sending Chanukah cards. "Do we send Shavuot
cards or Sukkot cards or Pesach cards? No. For Jews, the time for
sending cards is Rosh Hashana, not Chanukah."
He's also against the idea of giving gifts,
"This is not a time for gifts. On Chanukah, you give gelt. Purim
is the time for Shellac* Hanoi, sending gifts. The idea of gifts on
Chanukah only has come to compensate, to make sure Jewish
children don't feel left out."
But the desire to give Jewish kids something to hang onto while
Christian kids are having all the fun does not totally explain the
Christmasization of Chanukah. He says there's another,
reason, representing another, deeper problem.
"There are two ways Jews define themselves. One is through a
negative relationship toothers you only fed Jewish when so-
meone calls you s 'dirty lake.' The other way is in terms of how
others perceive you. So you identify Chanukah as the Jewish
Christmas. The problem is the inability to define ourselves
positivdy and independently."
"Bdng Jewish means being different. We have Jewish ways of
expressing our joy. With Chanukah that means lighting the
candles and playing dreidle and eating latkes and giving gdt.
That's the Jewish wsy. Without our distinctness, we would
Being distinctive, says Eckstein, would be best. Both for Jews
and for Christisns." They should celebrate their holiday, we
should cdebrate ours."
That doesn't mean, however, that Jews and Christians have to
go their separate ways. "We're not saying there shouldn't be a
dialogue. There has to be. But we are saying that faith must
Erecede intorfsith. We don't want to be homogeneous,
rotherhood is not adopting each other's observances, but respec-
ting them. I'm not going to become Christian for the sake of
No, says Eckstein. Jews should stay Jews and Chanukah. with
its latkes. sour cream or applesauce optional, dreidles. gdt songs
and warm fedings, should stay, well, Chanukah.
"The true meaning of Chanukah." says Eckstein, "is recognis-
ing the ultimate triumph of good over evil, of religious liberty
over bigotry and oppression, of sedng that Jews and Judaism did
survive, despite adversity.
"We don't wsnt to lose that."

deplored persecution and anti-
Semitism, the cardinal wrote to
450 parish priests: "In this spirit
of Christian charity, I ask you and
your parishes to observe Nov. 18
as s dsy of remembrance for
persecuted Jews." The cardinal
suggested lighting candles and
praying "for the release of Soviet

1985 Israel Hanukka Coins
As a result of immigration and
more often of forced expulsion,
first from ancient Judaea and
then from numerous other coun-
tries, Jews could be found living
throughout most of the world
from Egypt to China ... from
Argentina to Zambia. Each year
since 1962 Israel bas com-
memorated a different Jewish
community in the Diaspora by is-
suing a coin celebrating the holi-
day of Hanukka. These handsome
coins feature an eight-branched
Hanukka lamp (called Hanukkiya)
from the geographic area being
honored, and form one of the most
attractive continuing series of
anywhere in the world.
In the past, the Hanukka aeries
has featured a 17th century
Italian Lamp (1962). 18th century
North Africa Lamp (1963). 20th
century Russian Lamp (1972),
18th century Hanukkiya from
Holland (1975). the very popular
Early American Lamp honoring
the U.S. Bicentennial (1976), as
well as Hanukkiya from France
(1978), Egypt (1979), Corfu
(1980), and Poland (1981). The
new 1985 Hanukka coins feature a
16th century lamp from
"Aahkena*" was the Hebrew
name for a large area of Jewish
settlement in central and eastern
Europe. During the Middle Ages
many of its regions belonged to
the Holy Roman Empire of the
German nation, and in popular but
incorrect usage Ashkenaz is wide-
ly identified with Germany pro-
per. In the 16th century
Ashkenazi Jews began to be forc-
ed into prison-like areas within
the larger Christian settlements

What is Project Renewal?
It has been called "the single
most important program in Israel
today" because of its attempt to
remove one of the last barriers to
a just and equitable society in the
It-wish Homeland. And it has been
identified as a "critical priority"
by pivernment leaders, military
officers, professors and DUBI

Jewry plays a direct and personal
role in helping 300.000 Jewish
men, women and children make
places for themselves in Israeli
Project Renewal is a com-
prehensive rehabilitation program
aimed at radically upgrading the
quality of life in distressed im-
throughout Israel. It is supported
and funded by diaspora Jewry
through the Jewish Agency and
the people of Israel. Among its
unique features is the require-
ment that neighborhood residents
determine the needs of their com-
munities and how money will be
spent to meet those needs. Jewish
communities abroad are linked to
communities in Israel to en-
courage personal involvement as
well as to stimulate the ongoing
national campaign to fund the pro-
gram. Each Jewish community in
the United States linked to an
Israeli neighborhood raises money
for approved projects within that
neighborhood. All of the Project
Renewal funds raised by the
American community are
specifically designated for its link

Jewry as its responsibility and are
implemented by the Jewish Agen-
cy, with funding from American
Jews, through UJA, and Jewish
communities throughout the
world. The neighborhood steering
committee is at the center of each
phase of the program and nothing
happens unless residents approve.
Project Renewal is based firmly
on the principle of grassroots par-
ticipatory democracy. Involve
ment of residents is not an ideal to
aim for, but rather a basic "must"
of the program. They must take

Although their work is strongly
influenced by the Eastern Euro-
pean Judaica tradition, the

h*ve long been used to decorate
Judaica items. Yet the central

rounding lilies and doves, have no

Making a havdala spice con-
tainer in the shape of a train
engine has been done in the past.
But the Reichmans took this
theme to its conclusion by making
a second car as the candle holder
and a third car as the wine cup,
thus putting the entire havdala set
on the same track.
Josef and Alex recently receiv-
ed a special honor when they were
asked to prepare a silver havdala
spice box for the Belter Rebbe.
Their creation contained an
engraving of the new Belz
Synagogue being built in
Jerusalem. "The Rebbe was so im-
pressed that he wanted to see our
other work and invited us to meet
with him." says Josef. "He gave
us his special blessing."
"We believe all of our work is a
blessing," Alex concludes. "We
can sit and work until late at night
and not feel the time passing. This
is not just another job for us. The
ideas come when we study Torah.
We are transforming what we
learn into silver."

Snake! The mention of the woid
strikes fear into the hearts of
nwny And the mere sight of a
nake causes the pulse to become
wrong and rapid.
But contrary to what many peo-
ple believe, most snakes will not
bite man. Snakes usually use their
venom to loll other animals for
According to scientists, snakes
inject venom only 80 percent of
the time they bite humans. Yet, it
ja important to know what should
be done when someone is bitten by
">y type of snake. Even with a
aevere poisonous snake bite,
chances of survival are good if
breathing can be maintained and
the victim can be transported to a
hospital emergency room where
anti-venom can be administered.
A poisonous snake bite can be
recognised by one or more punc-
tures by the fangs. Pain and swell-
ing appear at the site of the
wound. Usually, the site severely
stings and turns purple.
This differs from the wound
made by non-poisonous snake,
which usually takes the form of a
horseshoe (U-shaped) with little or
no swelling and discoloration.
In the event of a snake bite, the
victim should be kept calm, a
physician should be contacted im-
mediately, if possible, and the vic-
tim should be taken to a hospital.
If professional help is not
available, first aid should be
Many current first aid kits con-
tain materials to be used in snake
bite situations, and the following
measures should be used:
1. Apply a tourniquet just above
the bite area and apply ice, not ice
2. Keep the victim calm and
rested. The heart rate should be
kept as low as possible.
8. Make a small cut in the akin at
the site of the bite and apply suc-
tion. (Do not suck the venom into
your mouth, especially if you have
an open sore there.)
4. Make sure the victim is able
to breathe if not, begin mouth-
to-mouth breathing assistance.
5. Give the victim water to
drink. Do not give alcohol.
6. Seek emergency medical
stance as soon as possible.
