'Super Sunday P UJA '86 Phonathon Feb. 2
IT'S FOR YOU...
WHEW YOUR PHONE LINE
BECOMES A LIFELINE
On Sunday, Feb. 2, over 200 volunteers will take to the phones, asking young profes-
sionals, young families and young adults to make their commitment to Jews in need at
home, in Israel, and around the world.
"Super Sunday I is an unprecedented outreach effort for our community," noted
John Streng, General Campaign chairman for the 1986 Jewish Federation/United Jewish
Appeal Campaign. "Barry Mandelkorn and Jeffrey Streitfeld have put together a
dedicated group of people in a special effort to reach more new, young contributors in a
single day than ever before."
As part of this outreach, 400 local families were selected to receive a complementary
one-month subscription to the Jewish Floridian, in hopes of creating a better understan-
ding and appreciation of the annual Federation/UJA campaign and the agencies and ser-
vices it supports.
On Sunday, Feb. 2, phones will ring throughout North Broward County for Jewish
continuity and Jewish survival. If you're not making the call, please, ANSWER THE
"Don't put this call on hold. Too many people are waiting already, says Streng.
"When the Super Sunday volunteer calls, make your maxium possible commitment.
Together, we answer the human service needs of tens of thousands here in North
Broward, in Israel and in more than 33 nations worldwide. More than ever, you must
stand up and be counted among those who care for we are One People .. One Destiny."
UJA Cash Collections Set Peacetime Record
The following is an open letter to the residents of Greater Fort Lauderdale, thank-
ing them for their heartfelt generosity and work on behalf of World Jewry for the 1985
Federation/United Jewish Appeal campaign. In calendar year 1985, the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale remitted in cash to the National UJA office in New
York City, $8,167,09% to provide and continue urgently needed humanitarian and
social services programs in Israel and 38 lands around the world.

tion of the First Temple: the exiles made their
way from Babylon to the various cities of Persia
and from there to Afghanistan and Bukhara.
Researchers believe that the Jewish communities
of China and probably India originated in Persia.
The same Judeo-Persian language is spoken by
Persian, Afghan and Bukharan Jews.
This common language led to some confusion in
registering immigrants to Israel but a realistic
estimate is that about 7,000 Jews came between
1900 and 1948, including 460 who fled
Afhanistan in 1944 and settled in India and Iran
before coming to Israel. In August, 1949, there
were still 4,000 Jews in Afghanistan but by 1967
nearly all of these had reached Israel.
In the town of Herat, once a flourishing Jewish
center, no Jews remain; the four splendid
synagogues are closed and only the traces of
mezuzot long since removed from the gateposts
of former Jewish houses attest to the com-
munity's former presence. Some reports disclose
that the Moslems turned the synagogues into
schools; others claim that the municipality makes
use of some, while others are locked and barred.

A Charitable Remainder Trust
A Grandparent's Gift to the Community and to His Grandchildren
The following column is from
the Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies Department, Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, Jacob Brodzki,
This is the time of year for new
beginnings, for reassessment of
goals. It's a time for family
gatherings and for children star-
ting school. What better time to
consider a Charitable Remainder
Trust as a way to fund the educa-
tion of a child or grandchild?
The concept of a trust is simple.
A trust is an arrangement in
which one person holds legal title
to property but manages the pro-
perty for another's benefit. Under
such an arrangement, you can
have the income from the trust
distributed to one or more
beneficiaries for a stated period of
time, then have the trust property
distributed to another party. In
our example, a five-year
Charitable Remainder Trust Fund
is set up for a child while, at the
same time, making a tax-
deductive gift to the Endowment
Fund. For five years, the child
receives a fixed payment. After
that time, the remainder becomes
part of the Endowment Fund.
If you establish a five-year
Charitable Remainder Trust with
$50,000 in principal and an annual
income payment of 9 percent to
your child or grandchildren for
college expenses, you receive an
immediate income tax deduction
of approximately $32,940, which
results in a tax savings of $16,470
(assuming a 50 percent federal in-
come tax bracket). The $4,500 per
year (9 percent of $50,000) goes
directly to the child at essentially
no tax to him or her, and no tax to
Without the trust, you must
earn $45,00 ($9,000 for 5 years) to
provide the same amount ($4,500
annual income) for the child.
Under the trust arrangement, it
costs you only $33,530 ($50,000
less than the $16,470 tax savings)
to generate the same income for
the child during the five years of
the trust. In addition, you have
the satisfaction of making a mean-
ingful charitable gift to the En-

Lecture Series Feb. 3 Features
The Secret Petro Dollar Connection
Steven Emerson, noted author
of The American House of Saud:
The Secret Petro Dollar Connec-
tion, will be the third speaker of
the "Contemporary Issues of
Jewish Life" lecture series. This
event will be held at Temple
Sha'aray Tzedek, 4099 Pine
Island Rd., Sunrise, on Monday,
Feb. 3 at 8 p.m.
Steven Emerson, a former staff
member of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, was a
Washington based journalist. His
book is the result of three years of
intensive investigation. Mr.
Emerson interviewed over 500
American and foreign officials
and business executives and ob-
tained many internal and govern-
mental and confidential business
documents through the freedom
of information act and from other
sources. Mr. Emerson's work has
been cited and quoted widely in
the press community. His articles
have appeared in New Republic,
Christian Science Monitor, News-
day and many other publications.
In 1983 Mr. Emerson was award-
ed the Investigative and
Reporters and Editors Award for
top investigative reporting. He
has also been given a "Laurel" for
distinguished reporting by Colum-
bia Journalism Review.
As a member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee
staff from 1978 until 1981, Mr.

Editor's note: The following was adopted by the 54th General
Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations, November, 1985,
Washington, D.C., and expresses the views of the delegates of the
We reaffirm our commitment, based on the United States Bill
of Rights, to maintaining a strong wall of separation between
church and state in the United States. Only in this way can all
minority religions be protected from the tyranny of the majority.
During the past year the U.S. Supreme Court ruled again that
state sanctioned prayer in public schools, silent or otherwise, is
unconstitutional. It also ruled that public aid to parochial schools
breaches the wall of separation and is, therefore,
But while the court has strongly defended the separation of
church and state, Congress continues to debate legislation and
constitutional amendments that would weaken or destroy the
separation provisions of the Constitution. A recent bill advocating
silent prayer in public schools also advocate removing the issue of
school prayer from the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court. This
"court striping" bill was defeated in the Senate by a sizeable ma-
jority but similar bills are expected to be introduced next year.
And recent court decisions about the placement of religious sym-
bols on public property (nativity scenes, menorahs) have been
We also express our firm opposition to any call for a United
States Constitutional Convention which would, by definition,
threaten our entire Constitutional framework including the Bill of
Rights in general and the protections of the First Amendment in
particular. The 32 state calls for such a Constitutional Conven-
tion, the first assemblage of its kind in our 200 year history, are
now tied to a suggested amendment requring a balanced federal
budget. We must urge the defeat of any additional calls so that ac-
tion by two more states will not place our precious United States
system of government in peril.
We therefore urge our member Federations to remain vigilant.
We must oppose legislation and other actions at the community,
state, ar.d federal levels that seek to break down the constitu-
tional barrier between church and state that affords protection to
Jewish children in public schools and to Jews, and all minority
religionists in all public places. We call upon Jewisl- communities
to make their objections known to the use of public property for
the display of religious symbols, including our own. Freedom of
religion in the United States tradition requires the separation of
religion and the state.
Emerson conducted or par-
ticipated in Committee investiga-

for Frank Church, the Chairman
of the Committee. Mr. Emerson
also served on the subcommittee
on Foreign Economic Policy.

A top Soviet official for the Middle East strongly denied
reports of a possible resumption of large-scale Soviet Jewish
emigration. Karen Brutents, deputy chief of the International
Department of the Communist Party Central Committee, said,
"This is not the first uproar to be fanned by Western media on the
so-called emigration of Soviet Jews to Israel, and we do not ex-
pect it to be the last" (Al-Watan, Dec. 29). According to the
Kuwaiti paper, Brutents said rumors about renewed emigration
were planted to upset Soviet-Arab relations.
The official also pointed to Russia's treaty of cooperation with
Syria and said that Moscow stands with Damascus "in the face of
any Israeli aggression." He implied that the crisis over Syrian
anti-aircraft missiles in Lebanon was manufactured by Israel "to
escalate the level of tension in the Middle East" and interfere
with normalization between Jordan and Syria and other
developments which "do not please imperialist and Zionist

The Coral Springs Connection
Two Coral Springs couples, Gail and Kerry
Kuhn, and Esther and Len Wolfer, have decided
that it's time to share their involvement as part of
the "Federation family" with their friends and
neighbors in Coral Springs. As a result of their ef-
forts, the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale has announced the formation of the
Coral Springs Connection.
The Coral Springs Connection is a series of
discussions on contemporary Jewish issues,
specifically designed for the people in Coral Spr-
ings. The first session of the program will be
hosted by Esther and Len Wolfer on Tuesday
evening, Feb. 4. Dr. Abraham Gittelson of the
Central Agency for Jewish Education will lead
"The Survival Game," an exploration of feelings
about Jewish survival.
"We are very excited about this program," said
Esther and Len Wolfer. "It is designed for us, the
people who live in Coral Springs, and that is an im-
portant statement for Federation to make to us."
Gail and Kerry Kuhn agree. "Many of our friends
don't know anything about Federation," added the
Kuhns, "and this is an opportunity for them to see
the role Federation can play in this community."
The Coral Springs Connection will run through
June, with monthly discussions hosted by different
families in the community. Future sessions include
"What's Jewish About the Jewish Family," "Be-
ing Jewish in a Non-Jewish World," "Israel, Right
or Wrong? Our Dual Allegiance as American
Jews" and "There's More to Federation Than

By VICTOR M. BIENSTOCK
Former JTA Editor
A radio station financed by the
United States Government,
operated by the United States In-
formation Agency and broad-
casting directly to the people of
the Soviet Union, is carrying anti-
Semitic material selected by anti-
Soviet emigres, including pro-
grams that blame the Jews for the
advent of Bolshevism, defend
pogromists and condone Ukrai-
nian collaboration with the Nazis
The station is Radio Liberty,
based in Munich, Germany, one of
the three major stations transmit-
ting to the people in the Soviet
Union. It was run by the Central
Intelligence Agency during the
1950s and 1960s as an instrument
of the cold war. In recruiting the
station's staff, says Lars-Erik
Nelson, a veteran hand on Soviet
affairs, the CIA "occasionally
overlooked records of collabora-
tion with Nazi Germany." Now,
after many vicissitudes, Radio
Liberty is ensconced in the USA.
Radio Liberty policies have
long been under attack for
transmitting anti-Semitic and
anti-democratic materials. Its
directors have conceded some
errors in judgment by the staff
but they deny that anti-Semitic
material was deliberately car-
ried. One Jewish editor,
however, was fired because he
publicly protested the inflam-
matory anti-Jewish nature of
some broadcasts and refused to
agree to being muzzled.
Radio Liberty critics complain,
according to Nelson, nationally
syndicated columnist and
Washington bureau chief of the
New York Daily News, that
"under the Reagan Administra-
tion, rightwing emigres have set
the tone for many important
broadcasts." Nelson, who has
served as Moscow correspondent
for Reuters, speaks Russian. His
critical report on Radio Liberty
appears in the Winter issue of
Foreign Policy, influential
quarterly on international affairs
published by the Carnegie Endow-
ment for International Peace.
Noting complaints that Radio
Liberty commentators "are more
interested in refighting obscure
ideological battles, promoting
anti-democratic views, or vin-
dicating themselves in the eyes of
their former compatriots than in
serving US interests as Radio
Liberty's mandate re-
quires, "Nelson charges that more
is involved than the identity of the
station staff members.
"The arcane ideological war-
fare and, on occasion, religious
bigotry found on Radio Liberty
undermine the very idea that an
independent station can serve
both a Soviet audience and
American foreign policy in-
terests," he points out. Design-
ed as an outlet for voices forbid-
den to speak in the Soviet Union,
he comments, these voices, such
as that of Aleksandr Solzhenit-
syn, are frequently sharply
critical of American democracy
and American life and strongly
Nelson identifies three waves of
Soviet emigrants on Radio
Liberty's foreign-language staff:
those who themselves or 'their
families left at the time of the
Bolshevik Revolution, those who
emigrated at the end of WWII and
those, predominantly Jews, who
were allowed to emigrate in the
"Russians and Ukrainians who
left immediately after WWII have
protested, sometimes in crude,
hand-distributed cartoons, that
'non-Russians' newly arrived
Jews have too big a role in
determining the station's content.
Their slogan on one photocopied
leaflet," Nelson says, "un-
consciously parroted the Nazis:
'Only Russians should broadcast
to Russia.' "They also accuse the
Jewish newcomers of being
friendly to socialism, sympathetic
to Eurocommunism and
"It is both futile and counter-
productive for an American
radio station to portray an SS
division as patriots especially
to a Ukrainian nation that was
raped, butchered and pillaged by
the SS," Nelson comments.

counting Office last June quoted

Analyst Division as describing a
broadcast dealing with publication
of a revised edition of Solzhenit-
syn's August 1914 as anti-Semitic
and the most offensive program
aired by the Russian service in 10
The book, which has yet to be
published in English, has revived
a 15-year-old controversy over the
Nobel Prize winner's attitude
toward the Jews as manifested in
his writings. Dr. Daniel Pipes of
Harvard, an outstanding authori-
ty on Russia and a severe critic of
the Soviet system, says that
Solzhenitsyn is not a racist "the
question is fundamentally
religious and cultural." He sees
the author as "unquestionably in
the grip of the Russian extreme
right's view of the Revolution,
which is that it was the doing of
Solzhenitsyn, Nelson points out,
appears to blame the advent of
communism on the assassination
of Czar Nicholas' prime minister,
Petr Stolypin, by Dmitri Bogrov
who was described in the broad-
cast as the son of "a rich Jewish
lawyer" from Kiev. The Commen-
tator, Nelson points out, told his
audience in the Soviet Union that
Bogrov's shot at Stolypin "was a
shot at Russia."
The program, James Buckley
said, "appalled" him. In an inter-
nal memorandum, he criticized
the lack of supervisory personnel
at Radio Liberty and complained
that "there appears to be a certain
Russian mindset that makes it im-
possible for many of our editors
(including a number of Jews) to be
aware that a given script might
even conceivably bruise anyone's
To outside critics, however,
Buckley has maintained. Nelson
says, "that the script was not
anti-Semitic only open to
these examples, Nelson
declares, may not seem especially
offensive to Americans but they
can greatly affect a "blood-soaked
part of the world" where anti-
Semitism is still very much a con-
cern. The GAO reported that
there is no cumulative review of
Radio Liberty programs and the
management consequently does
not know whether violations are
increasing or decreasing and has
no machinery for passing on com-
plaints to department heads.
"In turn, some of the Jews
suspect, sometime with good
reason, that the Russian and
Ukrainian emigres who turned up
in West Germany immediately
after WWII must have col-
laborated with the Nazis."
Radio Liberty and Radio Free
Europe, have always operated
under a long list of "restraints" to
protect their objectivity and en-
sure maximum credibility. The
stations also had a strict set of
pre-broadcast review procedures,
most of which were eliminated by
two Reagan Administration ap-
pointees, Frank Shakespeare and
ex-Sen. James Buckley, on the
theory that the stations should
"The complaints erupted
almost at once," Nelson says,
with charges that "right-wing
extremist Soviet and Eastern
Europena emigres" had been
given free rein. Buckley issued a
memorandum in December 1983
noting "a proliferation of
charges that the Russian Ser-
vice broadcasts contain anti-
Semitic references. If true," he
declared, "such breaches of
decency and policy are in-
tolerable and must be put to an
Buckley also warned that
anyone spreading false charges of
anti-Semitism would be disciplin-
ed. His warning against anti-
Semitism in Radio Liberty broad-
casts apparently went unheeded.
In February 1984, Nelson re-
counts, the minority staff director
of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee complained of an anti-
democratic broadcast over Radio
Liberty and protested against an
"influx" of staff members with
connections to the NTS an
organization accused of col-
laborating with the Nazis in the
early stages of WWII.
Another broadcast to which
critics took exception was an
Easter message by Archbishop
Anthony of Geneva in which he ac-
cused the Jews "even after 2,000
years" of trying to steal the body
of Christ. When he was asked by a
Senate panel to justify this broad-
cast, James Buckley, then BIB
chairman, denied that the word,

Responses to Social Trends
Certain sociological trends that

dealing with them are featured
in the February edition of "Jewish

magazine-format program pro-

every Sunday from 8:30-9 a.m. on
WDZL-TV (UHF), Channel 39 in
Dade and Borward County and
WFLX-TV (UHF), Channel 89 in
Palm Beach County.
The latest program begins with
a look at the phenomenon of
"singles" and presents possible
ways of helping people meet one
another, updating the ancient ef-
forts of the "shadchan" or mat-
chmaker to meet today's
Next, the alarming increase in
the influence of cults and mis-
sionaries is examined, with some
suggestions about what to do
Finally, the program turns to
another phenomenon, the fact
that people are living longer and
healthier lives than ever before,
creating a remarkable increase in
what is now called the "well elder-
ly" population. The segment
highlights a model program that
enables elderly people in Israel to
combat loneliness and, most im-
portantly, to go on working and
contributing productively to

Remnants of A Thriving Community
Continued from Page 1
The Jewish cemetery is abandoned.
Jews from Afghanistan had journeyed to
Palestine at the end of the 19th Century. They
were usually the elders of the community and
those who returned were honored with the title
haji for they had fulfilled the commandment of
ziara to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
(Similarly, Moslems who have been to Mecca are
known as haj.) They described the burgeoning
return to Zion which they had witnessed and they
encouraged their people to make aliya. When the
Russians entered Kabul in 1979 they did not
harm the remaining 30 Jews. This tiny remnant
of the community continues to live as it has
In towns which had Jewish populations (only
Kabul, Balkh and Herat were open to Jewish
residence after the assassination of King Nadir
Shah in 1933), there was a hevrah or community
council, composed of the heads of families, which
cared for the needy, dealt with burials and
sometimes meted out punishment, including ex-
communication. The kalantur (leader)
represented the community before the
authorities and was responsible for the payment
of taxes. After 1952, when Jews were no longer
called up for military service, they had to pay
karbiyya an exemption ransom. There were
only a few wealthy families; the rest were mainly
poor tailors and shoemakers. Jews could not at-
tend government schools or practice certain oc-
cupations, including government service, and
most were not educated beyond heder.
The most recent struggle for power in
Afghanistan has continued for over a decade
since King Zahir Shah was deposed in 1973 by
General Mohammad Daud. Forty consecutive
years of monarchic rule thus ended and were
followed by a republic which lasted only five
years until Daud himself was overthrown by the
leader of the budding Communist party, Nur
Muhammad Taraki whose own rule was
shortlived. A counter-coup installed Hafiz Ula
Amin in power in December 1979. The raging
blood feud of avenging murders provided the
Soviet Union with an excuse to intervene and
establish its own strategic fdbthold in
Afghanistan. Claiming to respond to a call for
help, it entered the chaos of Kabul on December
27 of that year and put its own man, Babrak Kar-
mal, in charge. He is still the head of government
despite his noted lack of success in suppressing
the Afghan guerrilla fighters. Both the Russians
and the Afghan resistance claim that time is on
As the invasion drags on, nobody can predict
when it will end and civilian rule will be restored.
No military or political solution seems in sight.
One of the resistance leaders in New Delhi told
me a couple of years ago: "It is true that the Rus-
sians are hitting us hard and we have lost many
of our people in the invasion but they will not suc-
ceed in putting us down. We are constantly im-
proving our methods of fighting back as we learn
more about guerrilla warfare. Since every just
struggle ends in victory sooner or later we shall
In the meantime, a quarter of the population of
Afghanistan prior to the invasion are refugees,
over three million living in the region of Pakistan
and another million on the borders of Iran.

on Jewish communities, including one on the Jews
of Afghanistan, where he was born.

Inverrary Golfers to Hear
Rev. Grauel February 12
In celebration of the 38th An-
niversary of the founding of the
State of Israel, Inverrary golfers
will hold their 5th Annual Golf
Classic on behalf of the Federa-
tion/UJA 1986 campaign on Feb.
Following a day of golf, par-
ticipants will sit down to dinner at
the Inverrary Country Club.
Guest speaker at this event will be
celebrated Methodist churchman
and devoted Israel supporter,
Rev. John Stanley Grauel.
For three decades, Grauel has
continued unceasing efforts on
behalf of Israel. His identification
with Israel's cause started with
his impassioned message to the
United Nations on Thursday, July
17, 1947 from a small room
aboard the Exodus. His seven
months aboard that vessel was a
factor in the ultimate successful
UN vote for partition, resulting in
the creation of the Jewish State.
Grauel's position in the
forefront of humanitarian causes
had earned him many honors and
awards, among which are: Fighter
for Israel Medal with two combat
ribbons; Humanity Medal (shared
with Pope Paul); Victory Medal
and Medal of Jerusalem, as a
founder of the State. He holds the
B'nai B'rith Humanitarian
Award, and additional honors by
Hadassah, National Council of
Jewish Women, and many others.

THE BEST WAT TO SEE ISRAEL
IS NOT AVAILABLE
TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
It is only available to members of the American Jewish Congress.
Since we inaugurated our International Travel Program in 1958, some
350,000 members have participated in our tours to Israel, as well as to
40 countries on six continents. Tours which have earned the reputation
of being, quite simply, the best there are.
What is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive for the creation of a
Jewish homeland in Palestine; to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
Jews throughout the rest of the world.
That was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
of Israel is unqualified and fundamental. We have been, and remain, an
integral part of the Mid-East peace process. At home, we are not afraid
to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
the courts and out, all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
What does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration of our concern for, and interest in, world Jewry would be to give
our membership the opportunity of traveling to Israel and many other
countries with Jewish communities. Since then, we have become the
world's largest Jewish travel program.
What is so special about traveling with AJCongress?
Our tours are renowned for excellence, sophistication, innovation,
style and unrivaled value. Our members travel together, never with com-
mercial tour groups. Everywhere we go, we arrange unusual and special
events, briefings on local Jewish life, meetings with Jewish communities
plus visits to each country's most popular sites and attractions.

ty Connection. All synagogues,
Federation and major Jewish
organizations have been invited to
be present to offer a hearty
welcome, answer questions and
distribute their literature. JCC

off the 16 acre campus and talking
about the programs they offer for
every age group for children as
young as one, on up to senior
adults more than 91!
Spearheading the Committee:
Esther Wolfer, former WECARE
director. Secretary of the Board
Marsha Levy and Board Members
Maria Frankel who chairs the JCC
Membership Committee and Ruth
Horowitz who heads the

would welcome the nameB of any
new people you know who are
coming into the community so
that they, too, may be invited to
become familiar with what is of-
fered in the area for their best
possible Jewish Community Con-
nection. They'd appreciate your
call to the Center.

WASHINGTON, D.C. Beverly Davis, International Presi-
dent of B'nai B'rith Women, presents Anita Perlman of Fort

honor of Mrs. Perlman's 80th birthday. The papercut, presented
at BBW'8 recent Executive Board Meeting, reads in Hebrew:
"Because of the deeds of righteous women the Jewish people was
redeemed." In honor of her birthday, Mrs. Perlman pledged
$80,000 to the B'nai B'rith Women's Children's Home, a residen-

JCCAD, now close to seven
years old, with a membership of
100 men and women, began its ex-
istence shortly after the Center
moved to its present campus on
Sunrise Blvd. in 1979. It was
established through the inspira-
tion of Henry Hyman and Ruth
Rosenberg, both children of deaf
parens, both ardent supporters of
JCC. JCCAD remains unique to-
day in that it is probably the only
ongoing program of its kind, in
Florida, surely. A hearing
organization has opened its doors
and said, "Come in Be part of
us." Usually, programs of this
nature have been created by the
deaf, for the deaf.
Another faithful interpreter for
JCCAD is Center Board Member
Dorothy Harwood. Despite a
slight hearing handicap, Harwood
speaks perfectly well and acts as
spokeswoman for her friends.
"It is so important to interpret
and explain JCCAD's problems
and needs to the hearing world,"
she says. "I am happy to be able to
perform this service for my many
good friends (and canasta part-
ners!) in the group."
Yet another good friend of
JCCAD is Keith Muller, director
of UHDS (United Hearing and
Deaf Services), a non-profit social
service agency in Lauderhill, in
existence but five years. Muller
describes the operation, a facility
established to work for the good
and welfare of the hearing-
impaired, supported by donations,
run by the director, two senior
aides and a corps of steadfast,
devoted volunteers. Muller is hap-
py to report that Florida is right
up there in providing good service
for the deaf. A bill passed recently
allows for the distribution of a
free TTY phone for any hard-of-
hearing person who requests one.
The TTY, short for a long
technological term, is an instru-
ment which truly can be called a
"touch-tone phone!" Its user
presses digits and letters which
flash the person being called and
convey a message via a print-out
on his TTY! Only four other states
provide this instrument to its
JCCAD members from left, standing, Helen Heine and Lazlo Bar-
dos. And seated Jennie Bragg, Magda Bardos, Freda and Bernie

Muller reports that there are as
many as 100,000 hearing impaired
persons in Broward with about
15,000 using sign language.
"The program at the Center is
wonderful for the older adult with
this handicap," he says. You can
readily see how supportive they
are of each other. They're real
He explains that many members
of JCCAD have known each other
all their lives having grown up
together in big cities like New
York and Chicago going to the
same special schools. And now fin-
ding each other again after retir-
ing to Florida has been a real
JCCAD members meet every
Thursday from 2 to 10 p.m.
"They'd come earlier," says
Dorothy Harwood," but Building
"C," where they meet, houses the
Federation Nutrition program
and there's no other room large
enough at the Center available on
a regular basis to accommodate a
group of this size," she explains.
A typical Thursday sees
members meet and divide
themselves into groups for
canasta, pinochle, poker or just
tables of conversation with their
hands flying faster than words.
About five in the afternoon
Keith Muller usually visits
"talks" on a topic of interest such
as finances Social Security
health. Before he leaves he takes
time out to answer their personal
questions. Sometimes an expert in
a particular field comes to talk to
the group with interpreters
standing by at all times.
We asked Muller how members
get to the Center, car pool? van?
"No," he said, "they drive
themselves. They're great
drivers. Very careful, very safe.
Afer all, driving is a visual opera-
tion. Can you tell which way an
ambulance is coming, from the
sound of the siren? Not really," he
continues, "not until it's almost
on top of you. The deaf who are
constantly on the alert, are very
sensitive to flashing lights and can
tell where an ambulance is coming
from quicker than any hearing
Director Kreger describes the
rest of the Thursday members
generally bring their dinner in a
brown bag and then stay on for a
captioned movie. Other regular
events for the group include a
Saturday night social once a
month with entertainment, cards
and snacks, holiday celebrations,
occasional trips, and special
shows. Planned, says Kreger, is a
"Chorus of Hands," in February,
a special signing group and a
March 2nd Brunch.

JCCAD, like any organization,
has a Board of Directors and Of-

has held office for a year. He is
very happy with his group. "No
problems." he says. "Everyone
enjoys helping." Charter
members of JCCAD, Goodstein
and his wife moved here from
New York 16 years ago.
Another couple, Edna and
Meyer Rindner, also longtime
members, hardly miss a Thursday.
Edna says, "They've nicknamed
me 'Mother of the Year' because I
like to buy the refreshments every
week and collect money for the
weekly door prizes. I just like do-

Gertie Deitch lived in Chicago
just across the street from the
Bernard Horwich JCC! "I used to

year member, comes from

operator, he says its wonderful to

Jewish people get together and

All family people, many with
children and grandchildren of nor-
mal hearing, some JCCAD
members speak or read lips better
than others. But everyone there
seems to communicate a genuine
feeling of pleasure and satisfac-
tion from belonging to JCCAD.
For them it may be a world
without birds singing, or music
playing or for that matter horns
blowing or phones ringing but it
is not a world without laughter or
good times or the comfort of hav-
ing many friends nearby.

JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE OF BROWARD COUNTY
MID-LIFE: ALL I WANT
IS TIME FOR A CRISIS
By SUSAN N. KOSSAK
Family Life Education
Jewish Family Service
of Broward County
Life begins when the kids leave
home and the dog dies; or does it?
Years ago when money was so
tight that you and your friends
hired one babysitter for five kids,
went exclusively to BYOB parties,
and worried about paying the
rent, you dreamed of the day
when life would once again be
calm and simple.
You thought this time would
probably occur around mid-life,
when you could come and go as
you pleased, have money for lux-
uries, start a new career and
reflect upon the satisfaction of
having completed some of life's
tasks. It was to be a time just for
you or just for the two of you. HA!
Well, often it doesn't work out
quite that way. The kids stay
longer and often return after they
initially leave, people lose jobs,
marriages are out of sync.
Husbands are often thinking
about retiring, while wives are
planning to start or return to a
career. And, yes, what about the
new demands placed upon you by
aging parents? Will it ever be your
Mid-life is a life transition
period. It is the time we need to
take stock of our lives, set new
courses and celebrate life. During
the beginning of the middle years,
we suddenly become aware of our
own mortality. Time becomes of
the essence. Adolescence is a
similar transition, except
teenagers are more inclined to
have societal support for their in-
decisiveness or lack of direction.
After all, they're only kids! Also,
adolescents think that they will
Aid Talks End
WASHINGTON U.S. and
Israeli officials have wound up
two days of intensive economic
talks here with general agreement
on the expected levels of U.S.
economic and military aid to
Israel next year.
Israeli officials, briefing
reporters recently, said the
Reagan Administration was now
likely to seek $1.9 billion in
military grants and another $1.2
billion in economic grants for
Israel as part of the 1987 fiscal
year budget which President
Reagan is scheduled to submit to
Congress in February.
Israel's official requests were
higher in both categories, but it is
not expected to ask its friends in
Congress to seek additional
live forever and thus, things can
be put off for a while. Mid-lifers
are not afforded this luxury.
It becomes exceedingly more
difficult to deal with our changing
selves when other external
stresses are placed upon us, pull-
ing us in opposite directions.
Sometimes we need help in deal-
ing with transitional periods in
our lives. It is often helpful to
have an impartial professional
counselor to aid us in exploring
who we are, where we're going,
set new directions, deal with
stress and guide us in making mid-
life a rewarding happy time. If we
can clarify our thoughts and see
our options, this can truly be a
time to celebrate life.
If you or a member of your fami-
ly needs help coping with a transi-
tional period of life, call Jewish
Family Service at 749-1505 in
Fort Lauderdale, 966-0956 in
Hollywood, or 427-8508 in Deer-

counselors to aid you. Fees are on

Still another broadcast which
received unfavorable attention
was a program based on the
memoirs of a German diplomat
which alleged that Ukrainian na-
tionalists had enlisted in the SS
Galizien Division merely to obtain
arms. But, says Nelson, the broad-
cast omitted what its Ukrainian
audience knew: that while Hitler
regarded Ukrainians as
subhumans, and the SS killed hun-
dreds of thousands, some 30,000
had joined the SS and the Galizien
Division had performed nobly for
The goodwill of the Radio Liber-
ty management came into ques-
tion when it fired a Jewish editor,
Vadim Belotserkovsky, for pro-
testing to Buckley about the
August 1914 broadcast which, he
said, perfectly complemented
Soviet anti-Semitic propaganda.
In view of the management's
refusal to recognize the existence
of major problems which are
destroying Radio Liberty's
credibility, Nelson says the
simplest solution would be to
abolish the station.
However, he asserts, abolishing
Radio Liberty "is politically im-
possible especially under a con-
servative Republican administra-
tion that believes if Soviets can
hear the American message they
will somehow change their ways."
