On February 2, 1986, phones throughout North Broward
County will ring for Jewish continuity for the people of
Israel and for Jews all over the world. February 2 is the
first of two "Super Sundays", and this phonathon is design-
ed to reach the professional divisions and young families
and adults on behalf of the 1986 Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale/United Jewish Appeal campaign.
On Super Sunday, more than 200 volunteers will man
phones at Oppenheim and Company, 2456 East Sunrise
Blvd., from 9:30 a.m.-l p.m. and from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
During last year's Super Sunday, volunteers raised more
than $150,000 through this community-wide effort. It is ex-
pected that this year's two Super Sundays, will surpass all
previous efforts. However, only YOU and hundreds of
other super volunteers can make the event a super success.
Serving as co-chairmen of Super Sunday I are Barry
Mandelkorn and Jeffrey Streitfeld. Barry has been a part-
ner with the law firm of Ruden, Barnett, McClosky,

In The Spotlight...
Italy's Jews Restore Their History and
There are only 35,000
Jews in Italy, but they
represent the oldest
Jewish community in
the Diaspora that can
document its existence
through more than
2,000 years of history,
predating the Christian
era. However, much of
thk rich legacy of ar-
tifact and architecture is
deteriorating, and only
now are strenuous steps
being taken to preserve
and restore it.
Needed are money
and know-how, and that
is what brought to New
York Tullia Zevi. presi-
dent the first woman
to hold that office of
the Union of Jewish
Italian Communities.
She spoke at the Jewish
Museum, where the first
meeting of the Italian-
Jewish Heritage Foun-
dation of America was
"The Italian Jews
represent a micro-world,
but an important culture
that is like a frail body
with a heavy head that is
our historic past," Mrs.
Zevi said.
At the session, leaders
of Jewish and preserva-
tion groups heard Mrs.
Zevi and others speak
about the need and the
urgency. The talks
centered in particular on
the Jewish catacombs,
two in Rome and one at
Venosa, north of Ban, in
Apulia. The catacombs
were subterranean
cemeteriess, the or-
dinary burial places for
everyone: Jews, Chris-
tians and pagans.
According to Dr. Eric
M. Meyers, professor of
Religion and Judaic
Studies at Duke Univer-
sity, who also spoke,
"The manner of inhuma-
tion in subterranean,
labyrinthine burial
chambers with in-
dividual niches and
loculi for burial, is a
Semitic, probably an-
cient Palestinian form of
Mrs. Zevi explained
that, while the state
owns all such below-
ground antiquities, all
Italian catacombs were,
under the terms of
Mussolini's 1929 Con-
cordat with the Vatican,
administered by the Ho-
ly See. In 1984,
however, the Govern-
ment negotiated a new
agreement with the
Vatican that would leave
the Christian catacombs
under Vatican jurisdic-
tion, while relinquishing
guardianship of others.
The Union of Italian
Jewish Communities has
been negotiating with
the state to take over
administration of the
Jewish catacombs, and
this seems likely to take
effect by next June.

More Help is Needed to Meet Challenge ...
Still Time to Help UJA in 1985
This year isn't over and neither
is the 1985 Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal Cash
Collection campaign.
In fact, as of December, the
campaign is still short of the funds
needed to allow Federation/UJA
family of beneficiaries and agen-
cies to continue funding the life
saving human services relied on
by Jews in Greater Fort Lauder
dale, in Israel and more than S3
countries around the world.
"It is our year-end challenge,"
said Gladys Daren, Cash CoUec
tions chairperson. "The needs of
thousands of Jews who are depen-
dent on us are greater this year
than ever before, and we call on
you to pay your pledge now and
give the full support of the com-
munity in order to continue to
help those in need," said Daren.
Gladys Darea
Daren noted that a great
number of residents of the North
Broward Jewish community is liv-
ing near poverty, and in Israel the
situation of the poor or near poor
is becoming catastrophic due to
the government being forced to
cut back on subsidies for food snd
all social services.
"We are in an emergency situa-
tion and we cannot turn our back
on cries for help," noted Daren.
"To date countless funds have
been received for the 1966 cam-
paign. We need those who have
not yet paid their pledge to do so
now, before the end of the year
and we need those who have made
a pledge to give more to help
those in need, for whom the situa-
tion is more desperate."
"We must," she said, "meet the
Federation/UJA challenge. I call
on every member of the Greater
Fort Lauderdale Jewish communi-
ty who is able, to help make sure
we achieve this goal.'
AIPAC Speaker on U.S.-Israel Relations
On Dec. 10 Douglas Bloomfield,
legislative director of the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC), spoke to
members of the local community
at a Middle East briefing spon-
sored by the Community Rela
tions Committee (CRC) of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale and hosted by
Temple Kol Ami, Rabbi Sheldon
Harr. spiritual leader, in
Bloomfield was introduced by
Richard Entin, chairman of the
Federation's CRC, who noted that
AIPAC is the only American
organization registered to lobby
Congress in support of legislation
affecting Israel.
Bloomfield addressed a timely
subject, "The U.S. and Israel:
New Threats to Old Ties." noting
that the traditionally strong
Bloosafield sad Eatia
friendship between the United
States and Israel has recently
been challenged by the arrest of
Jonathan Pollard on charges of
spying on the United States for
Israel. The United States has ac-
cepted Israel's apology for this
violation of Israeli policy, and in
Bloomfield's expert assessment
there should be no lasting damage
to the relationship between the
two countries.
In discussing the Reagan ad-
ministration's proposed arms sale
to Jordan, Bloomfield spoke about
Israel's friends in Congress who
have consistently opposed arms
sales to Arab countries that are
not willing to directly negotiate
peace with Israel. Noting that
South Florida's Congressional
delegation is strongly supportive
of Israel. Bloomfield stressed the
importance of expressing our ap-
preciation to reinforce their sup-
port cf Israel.
LEADERS recently hotted a special luncheon
at Inverrary Racquet Clutfor Douglas Bloom-
field. Legislative Director of AIPAC, the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee
Bloomfield held a special briefing for Inver-

rary loaders concerntng the current Middle
East situation. Seated, clockwise, are Ely
Kushel, Frank Ruby, Howard Games. Honey
and Maurice Axelrod, Max Lebowitz, Maurice
Levtne, Douglas Bloomfield, Adolph Catten,

JERUSALEM The Neturei Karta, the virulently anti-
Zionist ultra-Orthodox sect, has applied for representation on the
central committee of the Palestine National Council the so-called
Palestinian parliament-in-exile which Israelis regard as part of
JERUSALEM Large-scale dismissals of State employees
and civil servants is the price Israel is paying for economic
recovery. The Treasury proposed a budget of $21.2 billion for the
next fiscal year which incorporates s $600 million reduction in
government expenditures.
ISRAEL A State of Israel Variable Rate Bond Issue of $260
million of Israel's economic development has been announced by
the Israel Bond Organization, which markets a variety of Govern-
ment of Israel securities in the United States, Canada and abroad.
The announcement was made by David B. Hermelin, National
Campaign Chairman, and Brig. Gen. Yehuda Halevy,
and chief executive officer.
Raoul Wallenberg
Senate has approved legislation to
name a street in front of the soon-
to-be built U.S. Holocaust
Memorial Museum as "Raoul
Wallenberg Place" in honor of the
Swedish diplomat who saved some
100,000 Jews in Hungary during
The naming of the street was in
an amendment to the District of
Columbia Appropriation Bill in-
troduced by Sen. Carl Levin (D.
Mich). The House took similar ac-
tion earlier this year. Levin said it
was "appropriate" that the street
be named for Wallenberg, "a man
who saved so many from the hor-
ror of the Holocaust,"

Coalition Should Last
afoshe Arena, a leader of the Likud party and minister-without
portfolio in Israel's national unity Cabinet, warned that the
Jordanian-Syrian rapprochement "does not bode well" for the
chances of direct talks between Jerusalem and Amman. Betides
trying to improve his image in the West and win sophisticated
weapons from the United States King Hussein hopes to gain
Arab support "to strengthen his position within Jordan."
But the "marriage of convenience" between Hussein and PLO
leader Yasir Arafat ran aground on the issue of continuing PLO
terrorism. So, Arens said, the King "now looks to Syris to hold
his hand. I am sure Syria is intent on preventing s Jordanian
peace process with Israel. And 1 am sure the King is aware of the
Syrian strategy."
Arena, in Washington recently on s brief visit, believes that
Israel's "unusual government" which includes the two major
opposition parties should continue through the scheduled Oc-
tober rotation. Then Prime Minister Shimon Peres of Labor and
Foreign Minister and Vice Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir of
Likud are to exchange posts. Arens pointed to resolution of the
Cabinet crisis between Peres and Industry and Trade Minister
Ariel Sharon of Likud as proof of the coalition's staying power.
Sharon had to apologise for harsh criticism of the Prime
Minister and Peres withdrew a threat to fire Sharon. Arens said
that under the coalition agreement between the two major blocs,
a Prime Minister could not fire a Cabinet member from the op-
position without approval from the other party. In addition, the
small but politically important religious parties showed they were
not ready to join Labor in s narrow coalition government, Arens
He did not expect a challenge to Shamir's Wmdrrship at the
winter conference of the Herat party Likud's major opponent
There has been speculation about an ouster attempt led by either
Sharon or Housing Minister David Levy. But Arens pointed out
that "the rotation agreement is based on individuals (Peres and
Shamir). I think any minister trying to put his own interests
ahead of the party's will get very little support Such an attempt
(to unseat Shamir) would be injurious" to Likud.
Nevertheless, the inherent conflicts in s government of op-
poaites means that people will be maneuvering for position in case
s new crisis does shatter the coalition, the minister said. One issue
ow which division could come peace talks with Jordan -
seems irreconcilable Arens said that "this government cannot go
to an international conference unless ... ronaansue is reached on
the subject." Hussein wants such s conference and Peres has said
that Israel's participation under certain types of "international
auspices' might be acceptable.
But Arens asserted that Israel has no agreement with Jordan,
"not even on a framework" to offer Hussein international
"cover." Likud resists even Peres' suggestions at s ceremonial in-
ternational invitation to Israeli-Jordanian talks because this
might permit "the entry of the Soviet Union and other countries
which may be hostile to Israel."
He noted that on the leaser matter of Tabs, the sliver of Sinai
beachfront contested by Israel and Egypt Likud Cabinet
members would not allow the Prune Minister to agree to Egypt's
call for arbitration Instead, they insisted on non-bmdnw concs&a-
bon. as called for in the Camp David Accords.
Beyond party pohtaes, the unity ginnisl should endure

cuts that no other government could have agreed to and im-

are now very much settled in economic terms. Generally well-
educated and hard working, most found good jobs with relative
ease, and by now they are a valued part of the Israeli labor force.
For example, they make up a significant percentage of the
engineers and chemists in Israeli industry; they staff many Israeli
clinics, and were it not for Russisn immigranta, there would be
precious few mathematicians and physics teachers in Israel high
Social integration has taken longer, even in regard to relatively
public youngsters. According to some Israeli teenagers, the kids
from the Soviet Union tend to be standoffish. "Becoming like
sabras" appears to be more difficult for them than boys and girls
who came at about the same time from Latin America or the
United State*.
Be that as it may, the younsters who moved from Leningrad
and Minsk to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem eventually will become full-
fledged Israelis, while, in the view of many observers, those who
moved to Los Angelas or Philadelphia may well abandon Jucbsm
So where Jewish survival is concerned there is no question
where Russian Jews should go.
Not only veteran laraehs hsve been less than enthusiastic about
the current campaign on behalf of Soviet Jewry. Their sttitude is
shared, for instance, by an aeronautical engineer who came here
from Moscow in the 1970s.
'To be sure," he said. "Soviet Jews should be allowed to leave
Russia and go wherever they please, but other Russians should
also hsve the same right, and no one, I hope, would rnggeit that
we Israelis should struggle to open Soviet borders for everyone.
"Only if I could be sure that I would be heaping to repatriate
Jews, to bring them home to Israel, would I become actively in-
volved in a campaign on their behalf," he concluded.

wiring the President to certify to
Congress, when he submitted a
sale of sophisticated arms to Jor-
dan, that Jordan is publicly com-
mitted to the recognition of Israel
and has agreed to enter into pro-
mpt and direct peace negotiations
before allowing a major arms sale.
These provisions were also ac-
cepted by the House and Senate
Appropriation Committees and
were included in their respective
Continuing Resolutions stop-
gap funding measures to fund
agencies and programs, such as
foreign aid, whose regular ap-
propriations have not received
final Congressional approval.
Before the August Congres-
sional recess. Congress also pass-
ed the Department of State
Authorization bill, which included
provisions protecting Israel's par-
ticipation in the United Nations,
$25 million for resettlement of
Ethiopian Jews, and strong anti-
terrorism language.
In September, the Reagan Ad-
ministration notified Congress of
its intent to sell Jordan an arms
package valued at $1.9 billion
despite strong Congressional op-
position. The opposition wss bas-
ed on my amendment in the FY 86
Foreign Aid bill. More than two-
thirds of the House and Senate did
not believe that King Hussein had
taken the necessary steps to meet
the certification requirement.
The proposed arms package in-
cluded 40 F-20 or F-16 advanced
fighters; 12 mobile I-Hawk
surface-to-air missile batteries
and equipment to convert Jor-
dan's present 14 batteries into

charities. The establishment of a
philanthropic fund not only helps
the community, but carries
substantial tax benefits because
the charitable income tax deduc-
tion is available in the year of the
gift, and further removes these
gifted assets from the donor's
estate for estate tax purposes.
For *"rK assume a donor,
who regularly contributes to the
Federation's annual campaign,
receives a large bonus or other
windfall equal to $26,000. If this
donor is in the 60 percent income
tax bracket, he will pay $12,600 in
income taxes, and retain $12,600
of the windfall for his own use. If
this donor were to give $6,000
the Federation, his income taxes.
after considering the charitable
income tax deduction, would be
$10,000. His $6,000 gift for the
year following this windfall would
have to be given out at his $10,000
remaining dollars, so-calWd "after
were to use the $25,0W to*
establish his own philanthropic
fund within the Foundation, he
would be entitled to a $26,000 in-
come tax deduction, therefore
paying no additional income taxes
from the receipt of this windfall.
The $26,000 in the philanthropic
fund will grow tax free, and may
be disbursed by the Foundation as
the donor recommends. Thus, as
many as five (5) years of $5,000
contributions may be made to the
annual Federation campaign at
the request of the donor, whereas,
as stated above, by not
establishing his own philanthropic
fund, the donor could only con-

Two other advantages are
worth notice. First, you receive s

Gold, who has spent much time
in direct and personal contact
with the people of Kfar Saba, ex-
plains how important it is to sup-
port the work accomplished by the
Project Renewal programs. She
stated. "This is our attempt to
remove one of the last barriers to
a just and equitable society in the
Jewish homeland with this com-
pieheneive rehabilitation program
aimed at radically upgrading the
quality of life in distressed im-
migrant neighborhoods

In October, the Senate passed a
resolution, by a vote of 97-1, pro-
hibiting the arms sale until March
1,1986 unless direct and mean-
ingful peace negotiations between
Jordan and Israel are underway.
If these negotiations have not
taken place, then Congress will be
able to permanently block the sale
in February.
Due to the necessity of passing
legislation to block the sale within
30 days, the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee accepted the
Senate resolution and the full
House approved it in early
November. President Reagan,
who had been persuaded to accept
the delay in order to avert an
outright rejection of the arms
package, reluctantly signed the
measure soon after.
Prior to the introduction of the
delaying resolution, an over-
whelming majority of Congress
had sponsored House and Senate
resolutions, disapproving the sale.
Along with Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee Chairman Dante Faacell
and 10 House colleagues, I drafted
the House disapproval legislation
to block this unwise and untimely
arms sale. After less than two
weeks, we had more than 280
Congressional co-sponsors and in-
troduced the legislation with near-
ly two-thirds of the House co-
sponsoring it. I will work with
Congressional opponents of the
sale to assure passage of my
original resolution of disapproval
in February if King Hussein con-
tinues to stall in negotiating
directly with Israel.
While there was some talk of a
proposed Saudi Arabia arms
package this year, the Ad-
ministration has decided to put off
such a request until early next
year. The package, which would
have faced stiff opposition in Con-
gress, would have included: 12
Blackhawk helicopters; advanced
electronic warfare equipment for
F-5s and F-15s; at least 1,000
Sidewinder missiles; Harpoon
missiles; 800 Stinger missiles; and
upgrades for Saudi Arabia's cur-
rent fleet of 60 F-16s and possibly
some additional F-15s.
Other pro-Israel legislation
passed by Congress this year in-
cludes a joint House-Senate
resolution condemning the 1975
UN resolution equating Zionism
with racism. The resolution, ap-
proved in August, "repudiates
United Nations General Assembly
Resolutions 3379," and calls upon
the parliaments of all countries
which value freedom and
democracy to do the same.
This year. Congress also ap-
proved, and the President signed,
legislation to implement tariff
agreements negotiated under the
U.S.-Israeli Free Trade Agree-
ment. The agreements would
allow the two countries to trade
goods and services without any

Italy's Jews Restore Their History
Continued from Page 1-A
"We consider the care of our
catacombs not only a religious
obligation to our forefathers, but
of great historical interest
because there are comparatively
few literary sources that shed
light on our history," Mrs. Zevi
said during an interview after her
speech at the museum. "The
catacombs are a sealed book that
shows us how the Jews lived, a
book that tells us of Jews and
Italians we have always had a
symbiotic relationship with the
country and their day-to-day
pursuits, as notaries, actors,
sailors and so on."
Researchers have estimated
that there are 900,000 catacomb
graves and Mrs. Zevi said that of
these. 100,000 might be Jewish.
In the first century AD, perhaps 7
percent of the Roman Empire's
total population was Jewish, and
Rome alone had 40,000 to 60.000
Jews and IS synagogues.
What is needed, Mrs. Zevi said,
is expertise and funds, neither of
which can be supplied in full by
Italy's comparatively small com-
munity. Bonnie Brunham, ex-
ecutive director of the World
Monuments Fund, which has been
active in preservation efforts, told
the meeting that a grant will be
available to survey what must be
done to save the catacombs, which
are embedded in unstable volcanic
tufa stone. Henry Taub, board
chairman of the American Joint
Distribution Committee, said that
this was not a matter that lay in
the main arena of his group's con-
cerns but that the organisation
would help acquaint American
Jews with the situation.
The catacombs are only one
phase of the Italian community's
drive, Mrs. Zevi said. It is involv-
ed in saving the synagogues, ar-
chives and libraries of small, now
virtually abandoned communities
