The Ancient Jews of China
It is sad to see a community
disappear, but it seems to me that
the century old Jewish community
of China disappeared a long time
ago. I do not share the enthusiasm
for the plan of the Sino-Judaic
organization to erect markers.
The idea is a romantic one, but
after seeing the sad state of
buildings and markers that is part
of the Chinese scene I have my
doubts that such a dream is viable.
It was pointed out to us by Mr.
Zou, one of the three descendents
of the ancient Jews of China who
still lives in the old Jewish section
of Kaifeng, and with whom we
had tea one afternoon, that the
Chinese never persecuted Jewish
or other religionists, for that mat-
ter. Yet, today a member of a
religious group cannot become a
member of the Communist part
wherein lies the path to economic
betterment, according to Chinese
For me meeting in the tearoom
of the Kaifeng guest house with
Mr. Zou, Mr. Shih, and his nephew
was unrewarding. There was the
feeling that the meeting was or-
chestrated by the Chinese tourist
department. I was thankful to be
able to meet the three represen-
tative of the ancient Jews of
China. I would have liked to have
spoken more with Mr. Shih who
seemed to be more intelligent
about Judaism, but it was Mr. Zou
who was the main spokesman, and
the national guide was ever
To illustrate the tenor of the
meeting: I aaked the three men
what they thought of us. (It had
occurred to me that we might be
an odd sight to the Chinese. Here
were 21 American Jews, few of us
resembled another. There was a
red head, a couple of blonds, fat
ones, skinny ones, bald-headed
ones and one with a beard, others
clean shaven. Coming from dif-
ferent parts of the U.S. we dress-
ed differently.)
Mr. Zou's answer was long
winded, but our American-Jewish
tour guide cut it down to: "In as
much as Judaism is supposed to
speak the truth I cannot truthfully
say what I think of you. It is bet-
ter not to say."
By way of an answer Mr. Shih
told us a story. "I met a Jew from
Jerusalem, and I asked him if he
ate pork, and he said that he did. I
was confused because I was told
that Jews do not eat pig."
Both of these answers could
have pleased .the national guide,,
and told us nothing, or something
as the listener might determine.
I found China a much more open
country than I had expected. Its
people are free to read what they
choose. What they can write about
I do not know. What I could
discern, and what was substan-
tiated by foreign investment peo-
ple with whom we came in con-
tact, was that the Chinese want
very little to do with foreigners. I
throught that perhaps that was
why our contact with the descen-
dants of the Jews of Kaifeng was
monitored. Any question about
Israel was discouraged. China
does not recognize the Jewish
state, and China does harbor PLO
refugees. We learned that the
Chinese people do not like the
PLO anymore than they like other
foreigners, including the blacks
from Tanzania who have been
brought there to study. Certainly,
their hatred for the Japanese who
almost equal the Westerners as
tourists is quite evident. It is not a
"Yankee Go Home" outcry. Ac-
tually there seems to be a real lik-
ing for "the crazy American."
English, not Russians is taught in
the schools. What comes through
is distaste and distrust of all
foreigners. And, we can ask, who
can blame the Chinese after a
history of devious treatment by
neighbors and conguerors?

Conference Participant
Responds to Congressman
Larry Behar, prominent Fort Lauderdale attorney, was among
the 26 local leaders who participated in the National Young
Leadership Conference held recently in Washington, D.C.
Like all those who attended the conference, Behar got the op-
portunity to meet with his senators and congressmen.
Feeling the impact of that meeting, Behar decided to write a
letter to Congressman E. Clay Shaw.
Excerpts from that letter are below:

Creativity And Continuity: Jewish Culture In America
During 1985-86, the National
Foundation for Jewish Culture is
celebrating its 25th Anniversary
of service to the American Jewish
community with an integrated
series of public programs explor-
ing the theme, "Creativity and
Continuity: Jewish Culture in
America." Drawing on Jewish
creative achievements in the arts
and humanities, "Creativity and
Continuity" includes five regional
symposia, three national con-
ferences, wants for local com-
munity programming, a Jewish
cultural press and publication
series and three radio specials for
National Public Radio. All
together, there will be programs
in more than 30 communities, and
their impact will be felt in hun-
dreds of others.
The Foundation iB a beneficiary
of the Federation/UJA campaign.
"Creativity and Continuity" is
both celebratory and critical, ex-
amining the cultural condition of
the American Jewish community
NEW YORK The Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of
New York, the United Jewish Appeal of Greater New York, and
the UJA-Federation Campaign of New York announced and
celebrated their plans to merge on July 1 into one organization:
the UJA-Federation.
ATLANTA Leo Frank, a Jewish businessman whose lyn-
ching in 1915 became a rallying point for both the Ku Klux Klan
and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, was given a
posthumous pardon for the murder he denied committing. .
WALTHAM An international conference on "The Jews of
Poland Between the Two World Wars" will be held April 12-16 at
Brandeis University. Scholars from Israel, Poland, Western
Europe and North America will present and discuss their latest
research on the Jewish religions, political, cultural and literary
life in inner-war Poland.
NEW YORK In a major breakthrough in the use of Jewish
video, the Jewish Media Service is now offering for purchase 29

their educational applicability for the North American Jewish
NEW YORK Ninety Jewish participants in the UJA Winter
President's Mission to Israel pledged $1.4 million to the 1986
UJA/Federation Campaign, a 43 percent increase by the same
donors last year. Participants also pledged $233,400 to Project
and exploring the issues that arise
in the creation of an indigenous
Jewish identity in America.
From the special perspective
achieved through 25 years of ac-
tivity, the National Foundation is
witness to the richness and varie-
ty of cultural expressions that
have emerged through the in-
teraction of American society and
the Jewish community. Jewish
achievements in the arts and
humanities are substantial and
compelling. They contradict the
notion that assimilation has
weakened Jewish culture and
nullified its possibilities.
However, the continued
development of a creative Jewish
identity in America is far from
assured. Major challenges con-
front the American Jewish com-
munity. Can a vibrant Jewish
culture emerge within an essen-
tially secular society, cut off from
the historical, literary and
religious roots of Jewish tradi-
tion? Can English, as a language
shared with the surrounding
culture, be a medium for Jewish
identity? Can Jewish culture suc-
cessfully compete with the attrac-
tions of American Western
culture for the talents of our most
creative artists, scholars, profes-
sionals and leaders? Can there be
meaning and vitality in American
Jewish identity in an age which
has witnessed the re-birth of the
State of Israel?
The National Foundation for
Jewish Culture believes that there
is a substantial audience in-
terested and ready to engage in
the serious consideration of these
questions. We hope that the pro-
grams of "Creativity and Con-
tinuity" will stimulate greater
discussion of these issues and lead
to a richer, stronger, and more
self-aware Jewish community
able to play an increasingly impor-
tant role in the culture of America
and in the history of the Jewish

The Unaffiliated
Currently 40 to 50 percent of our people do not belong to a
synagogue or to any Jewish organization. One-half of the Jewish
families in America provide no Jewish education for their children
perpetuating non-affiliation into the next generation.
Non-affiliation readily leads to inter-marriage with little hope of
conversion or Jewish observance.
We must find the imaginative and innovative programs for
drawing in the unaffiliated Jews of this generation before they
become the non-Jews of the next.
Through your support to the Federation/UJA campaign, we can
provide the educational programs to make these unaffiliated a
viable part of our religious process.
A Cruel Illusion
North American Jewry has been hailed as the most powerful,
the most affluent, the most successful Diaspora community in
Jewish history.
But for many Jews today, this great dream has become a cruel
illusion. Economic hard times have ripped through the tapestry of
North American Jewry, leaving gashes of desperation and
despair. Today more Jews are hungry, jobless, homeless and
hopeless than at any time since the Great Depression.
True, Jews in need are still a minority. But because we are
Jews, we cannot tolerate suffering in even the smallest fraction of
our community. Because we are Jews, we cannot turn away from
the unaffiliated and uninvolved the hungry of spirit any more
than we can turn our backs on the homeless and/or the
Federation/UJA is one way to help our brethren who look to us
in their time of need. Make your gift now you'll be glad you did.
Boycott of Israel Extends to
The Ara boycott of Israel seeks not only to thwart the
economic development of Israel but to make it a pariah nation in
all areas. The ostracism extends even to participation in the inter-
national non-governmental federations that control chess, bridge
and tennis. The World Team Championship designates individual
nation-members to be host to various regional tournaments.
Pakistan was scheduled to be named as a host country, but its ten-
nis team withdrew last July on instructions from the government.
Similarly, India lost the right to be a host country because its
government would not agree to admit tennis players from Israel.
New York United Jewish
Appeal Merges With
Federation: Now Largest
Trustees of the New York Federation of Jewish Philan-
thropies who opposed a merger with the United Jewish Appeal -
because of concern that there would be a reduction in funds for
their local needs lost out last month when the merger was ap-
proved by a very large margin.
Together, the organizations were described in Jewish Week as
"the world's largest such Jewish institution."
Presently, the two groups raise funds in a joint campaign, and
allocate approximately 70 percent overseas (Israel) and 30 per-
cent domestically. Many Federation members felt that even this
split would not be retained in the event of a merger. Additionally,
the merger will eliminate the direct representation of Federation
agencies on the new Board of Directors, since only the Federa-
tion's executive committee will serve on that Board.

(First in a Four-Part Series)
EDITOR'S NOTE: The young
men and women of the United
States Armed Forces, the Jews
among them, often get too little at-
tention and caring concern from
the civilian community. This
series, commissioned by JWB and
its Commission on Jewish
Chaplaincy (CJC), helps to rectify
this. In human terms it focuses on
the Jewish cadets and midshipmen
at the three national military
academies the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point, the U.S.
Naval Academy at Annapolis, and
the U.S. Air Force Academy at
Colorado Springs their Jewish
chaplains, and the world in which
they live. Albert W. Bloom retired
Air Force lieutenant colonel
(reserve), former President of the
American Jewish Press Associa-
tion, former Washington and Pitt-
sburgh journalist and Editor
Emeritus of the Pittsburgh Jewish
Chronicle, was assigned by JWB
to put these vital themes in this
new-old focus.
What does the United States
Military Academy at West Point
have in common with Tevya of
"Fiddler on the Roof?
The traditions of West Point are
legion and no other institution in
America is more imbued with
history and tradition. A brand
new West Point Jewish Chapel,
first in history, of imposing pro-
portions, hewn of New Hampshire
granite and limestone, blending in
with the Gothic West Point ar-
chitecture and with the traditional
Jewish rock-hewn Ten Command-
ments, the Asseret Ha-Dibrot,
looking to the historic Hudson
River, now stands as a living
synagogue, more than a monu-
ment to Jewish history and
creative survival for the Corps of
Cadets and the more than two-
and-a-half million visitors who
visit the Academy every year.
In subtle tradition, too, the
rock-ribbed Ten Commandments
on the outside are directly suppor-
ting, inside, the Holy Ark.
First Full-Time Active-Duty
Another new Army tradition is
being forged with the arrival
three years ago of Chaplain (Lt.
Col.) Marc A. Abramowitz, West
Point's first full-time, active-duty,
uniformed chaplain, endorsed by
the JWB Commission on Jewish
Chaplaincy. West Point's previous
policy was to employ civilian rab-
bis, ministers and priests.
The Commission on Jewish
Chaplaincy of JWB, as the endors-
ing agency of Jewish chaplains,
stands in a unique civilian posture
with its direct access to the
Department of Defense. The
JWB-CJC tradition of religious
harmony among Orthodox, Con-
servative and Reform Judaism is a
model that can be emulated.
Religion for Cadets Very
There are 48 Jewish cadets at
West Point 41 men and seven
women. They all look to the
Jewish chaplain to sustain their
Jewishness during their military
careers at West Point.
Cadet Marc Moyer, 23, of
Millersville, Pa., class of '86, is the
cadet in charge of the Jewish
chapel, working with Chaplain
Abramowitz on religious and
social services.
Aim: "I wanted to come here
since I was a kid. West Point is a
whole world of its own. I did more
things here in my first year than I
had done in my whole life up to
that time. I jumped out of an
airplane; scuba-dived all over
Europe; trained in Europe, a fan-
tastic experience; been to Israel
on vacation; hope to go again this
year on 'space available' Air
Force aircraft."
Future: Moyer's dad is the
mayor of Millersville. The son sees
his as a military career. "But if I
want to shift careers, there are
lots of head-hunters out there.
West Pointers are disciplined and
are sought after in the corporate
Jewish Identity: "Here at West
Point, religion is a very important
part of cadet life. Religious activi-
ty is encouraged because it pro-
vides a moral foundation."
Jewish Tradition at The Point
Jewish tradition at The Point
goes back to its very origins:
In 1802 half the graduating
class was Jewish. There were only
two seniors. They were commis-
sioned second lieutenants in the
Army. One was Simon Levy, who
had been appointed for his good
conduct in the Battle of Maume
Rapids, August 29, 1794. The
whole corps at the Academy
numbered 10.
Brandy and Sherri Langston
are the pretty daughters of
Richard and Judith Langston.
Both are cadets, Brandy a junior
in the class of '87, Sherri a plebe-
freshman in the class of '89. Their
father is a corrections officer.
Both young women are outgoing
despite their cadet discipline.
Modestly, they both expect to "do
well" in their rigorous studies.
"Since we were both young, we
wanted to come here; I was
motivated by my sister," said
Sherri. Women are "pretty much
equal" at West Point, they agree.
They found "no unseemly hazing"
at all, and "no 'harrassment' of
women. We're not women lib-
bers," they said evenly.
Homesickness is a problem; and
for the boys girls are the pro-
blem. There are few of them
Cadet Moyer says: "Too many
Jewish cadets are dating out of
the faith. Inter-marriage is a pro-
blem here as in civilian life. If we
don't stop, we'll do to ourselves
over a long period what Hitler
tried to do in 12 years. That's my
message to my Jewish
On the lighter side, the 28-cadet
Jewish choir accepts 10
assignments each year to various
synagogues, temples and
organizations. "People are sur-
prised to find Jews at West
Point," Moyer smiled. "The whole
purpose of the choir trips is to
show our presence. We want to
encourage kids to come to West

should write to Director of Admis-
sions, United States Military
Academy, West Point, NY

Each cadet receives a full four-
year U.S. Government scholar-
ship which covers tuition, room,
board, medical and dental ex-
penses, plus an annual salary of
$6,500 to cover uniforms, books
and incidentals: Total value, about
$181,000 in 1985 terms.
Chaplain Abramowitz, 40, the
West Point "first," is Orthodox, a
graduate of Yeshiva University
(YU'67) and Haim Berlin Yeshiva,
as well as the Ferkauf Graduate
School at YU. His wife Cheryl is
an artist under the professional
name of C. Braina. They have
three children, Dena, 13, and twin
boys David and Daniel, 10.
Wives and families, especially
wives, are a great help to Jewish
chaplains. They are often
teachers, cooks of great Jewish
meals, and often surrogate
mothers and aunts to homesick
cadets. At West Point they have a
very talented and warm Cheryl
More Funds Needed for Chapel
Herbert M. Ames is president
of the West Point Jewish Chapel
Fund. Private funds were needed
to build the $5.6 million chapel.
Most of it has been raised by
Ames, his friends and benefac-
tors. Somewhat over a million
dollars more needs to be raised.
Meanwhile the West Point Cadet
Jewish Chapel stands like a
granite "rock of ages."
Lt. Gen. Williard W. Scott, Jr.,
present Superintendent of the
U.S. Military Academy, says:
"Religious freedom and cultural
pluralism are two of the chief
foundation stones of our
American democracy. They have
been won for us by the courage
and dedication of people who
came before us and risked their
'Not an Easy Task But a
Challenging One'
"This post has been a challenge
to me," Chaplain Abramovitz
declared. "Not an easy task but a
challenging one. Before I was
assigned as the first active-duty
military chaplain, West Point
employed part-time civilian
chaplains. They were good, but
not the same as full-duty chaplains
to the cadets."
Yet, Chaplain Abramovitz
pointed out, the late beloved Rab-
bi Avraham Soltes was one of the
main moving forces in the drive to
build the Jewish Cadet Chapel at
West Point, "inspiring those who
worked with him with his tireless
zeal and efforts." His unexpected
death on May 23, 1983, cast a pall
over West Point where he had
served long and dutifully as
civilian chaplain. He lies buried in
West Point, not far from his
special project, the Cadet Jewish
Chapel. Burial at West Point is a
rare tribute accorded civilian
An active-duty chaplain may he
assigned to a body of soldiers in-
cluding all religious faiths.
Chaplain Abramovitz has now
been assigned as Chaplain to the
3rd Regiment, in addition to his
specific Jewish faith-group duties.
"The Jewish soldier is very
vulnerable, always the greater
minority," he asserted. "We Jews
are struggling to keep our heads
above water religiously. If we
don't show then their way, who
"The Jewish military chaplain
gives Jews and Judaism a positive
image. Remember, many Jewish
cadets and soldiers in the Army
might have only memories of
Jewish religious life."
Helping to fill the breach is the
JWB Commission on Jewish
Chaplaincy whose chairman is
Rabbi Barry H. Greene, of Short
Hills, N.J. Rabbi David Lapp is
director and Rabbi Nathan Land-
man is deputy director. Through
the Women's Organizations' Ser-
vices, JWB provides Jewish gifts
at Hanukkah, Passover
specialties, and religious articles
throughout the year.

Zero Coupon Bonds Maximize Modest Gift To The Endowment Fund
bonds of different maturities in order to space
their payoff down the road and spread the income
to the Endowment Fund.
Assuming investment of funds at hypothetical
rates, this chart illustrates how Zero Coupons can
transform manageable annual gifts into $100,000.
The following column is from the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies Department, Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale, Jacob
Brodzlci, chairman.
Imagine the great feeling of knowing that the
Endowment Fund is $100,000 richer because of
your gift! And you don't have to give $100,000 to
make it happen.
The secret is Zero Coupon bonds.
The old familiar CD is one form of Zero Coupon
bond, as are corporate bonds and a whole
menagerie of government-backed obligations:
CATS, RATS and TIGRS, as they're familiarly
known. They are actually government instruments
which the buyer purchases at a discount. Zero
Coupons differ from coupon-paying bonds because
the interest they earn, which is fixed at the time of
purchase, is not paid out. Instead, it is compound-
ed, and the bondholder receives principal plus ac-
crued interest in a lump sum when they mature.
Attractive features of Zero Coupons
The low dollar prices of many Zero Coupons
allow you to make a very modest investment in
"Zeros" which you may then donate to the Endow-
ment Fund, with the assurance that your gifts will
accrue in value as time passes. The yield of Zero
Coupons is competitive with other instruments of a
similar maturity. And you know what that yield
will be when you buy them.
Government Zero Coupons are essentially risk-
free, as they are backed by the U.S. government.
No one has to decide about how to reinvest the
interest because it is automatically compounded.
Zero coupons mature after varying numbers of
years. If you plan to buy several, you may select

You may want to participate in the Endowment
Fund, yet not have a lot to give. In that case, Zero
Coupons are the ideal gift. The more distant the rate
of maturity, the less the initial investment need be.

Anti-Semitism Among Farmers In Dispute
claim by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, based on a
telephone survey, that reports of
growing anti-Semitism in the
American Farm Belt have
been"grossly exaggerated" was
challenged by two American
Jewish Committee officials and
the head of an independent group
monitoring extremist activities in
the Midwest.
The ADL, based on a survey of
600 persons in Iowa and Nebraska
conducted by Louis Harris and
Associates, concluded that far-
right extremist groups that seek
to stir up anti-Semitism by ex-
ploiting the farm crisis "have fail-
ed in their mission." "The results
clearly show that the American
farmer, although hard hit
economically, is decidedly not as
vulnerable to bigotry as those who
shrilly cry wolf about anti-
Semitism would have us believe, "
said Nathan Perlmutter, ADL na-
tional director.
While not disputing the
statistical data drawn from the
survey that about one in four of
the respondents revealed anti-
Semitic sentiments Rabbi
James Rudin, interreligious af-
fairs director of the AJC, said, "I
draw very little comfort when one
out of four farmers responded
with anti-Semitic sentiments."
In a telephone interview with
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Rudin said, "I draw no comfort
from the survey and neither do I
think the Jewish community
should." Rudin has made several

This statement, among others,
was made by the Dean of the
University of Tel Aviv. Professor
Yoram Dienstein, in an address
delivered to the Association of
Eng n. He noted that there
are / 67,000 students enrolled

fact-finding trips to the Midwest,

religious leaders.
Estimates Of Hard-Core
Similar sentiments were ex-
pressed by Leonard Zeskind,
research director of the Center
for Democratic Renewal, an
Atlanta-based organization that
has monitored anti-Semitic and
extremist groups in the Farm
Belt, and which has also been the
source of much information for
concerned Jewish groups.
In a 10-page report issued last
year, Zeskin reported that while
exact numbers on the various ex-
tremist organizational efforts do
not exist, "it is estimated that the
racist and anti-Semitic movement
has between 2,000 and 5,000 hard-
core activists in the Great Plains
Midwest, and between seven and
ten sympathizers for each
He asserted that these figures
do not differ much with the ADL
survey. He said each year the
"situation has progressively got-
ten worse. There have been more
meetings by anti-Semites that
have been better attended each
year and there has been a wider
distribution of literature."
The ADL noted that extremist
groups have tried to persuade
American farmers that Jews are
largely responsible for their pro-
blems. But the survey found that
those polled blamed their dif-
ficulties by and large on others,
such as the Reagan Administra-
tion and Congress.
Responses To Questionnaire
In the series of questions to test
latent attitudes, 75 percent of the
respondents put a "great deal" of
the blame for the farm problems
on "big international bankers.''
When a key modifier was added,

Project Renewal We Can Make The Difference
So Let Us Work Together To Make The Dream Of A Better Life For Our People Come True.
It's the Opportunity Of A Lifetime To Help Shape The Destiny Of Israel
Project Renewal is a com-
prehensive program to
rehabilitate Israel's neediest com-
munities. It's a special partner-
ship between American Jewry and
Israelis to close the social gap by
rebuilding and revitalizing these
neighborhoods through educa-
tional, social and physical develop-
ment programs and the physical
renovation and construction of
housing and community facilities.
Project Renewal means hope,
friendship and planning together
for today and tomorrow. Project
Renewal is an opportunity for our
community to join with other
American Jewish communities
and the people of Israel in a
people-to-people effort to
strengthen Israel.
Project Renewal has touched
the lives of 400,000 Jews since the
program began in 1978. It has
revitalized communities and im-
proved their self-image.
But we haven't finished the job.
Jewish children wait for after-
school recreation programs. Their
mothers still need basic Hebrew
literacy claases. Fathers seek to
improve their family's home.
Grandparents look forward to see-
ing friends at the senior citizens
club. And neighborhoods await
the opportunity to change from
distressed to dynamic.
The Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale's Pro-
ject Renewal city is Kfar Saba,
Israel. Through the efforts of our
Project Renewal chairperson,
Alvera A. Gold, and a host of
dedicated individuals, Kfar Saba
has grown from a struggling ghet-
to to a thriving neighborhood.
Still, much more needs to be done
and the Federation needs to raise
more monies to reach their com-
mitted totals.

Project Renewal and how you can
help, contact the Jewish Federa-
tion at 748-8400.

Women's UJA Community Day Luncheon
Unites With Broward County Areas
Over 200 women turned out to
show their support for the
Women's Division of the Jewish
Federation and to make their
1986 commitment to Federa-
tion/UJA, at the Divisions' annual
Community Day luncheon, held
recently at the Bonaventure Hotel
and Spa.
"At first the turnout was slow,"
stated luncheon co-chairperson
Bess Katz. "But we knew that the
women of North Broward County
realized the needs of Jews locally
and worldwide and would lend
their support."
Guest speaker was Dr. Deborah
Lipstadt, whose discussion
highlighted the luncheon. Dr.
Lipstadt discussed the changing
roles of women in the Jewish com-
munity throughout the centuries.
"Women have always been an
integral part of Jewish society,"
she said. "However, the general
population does not fully unders-
tand our roles. We are typically
stereotyped either as the nagging
Jewish mother or the JAP, Jewish
American Princess. It is our duty
to see that society fully
understands our importance to
the family, to our community, our
religion and ourselves," Lipstadt
"The day was truly a
community-wide event," stated
Carole Skolnik, luncheon co-
chairperson. "We had women
from Palm-Aire, Plantation, Coral
Springs, Inverrary and
everywhere in between. Many
thanks to the fabulous luncheon
committee who helped things run
as smoothly as they did," she
Prior to the lunch, an in-
novative, moving program was
presented by the leadership of the
Women's Division. Each was
given a character to portray who
in some way, was helped by the
agencies that Federation/UJA
funds. All in attendance agreed
that it was a most effective way to
present what the Federation does.
"All our participants in the pro-
gram did a great job," stated Bar-
bara Wiener, Women's Division
campaign co-chairperson.
Also addressing the group were

paign co-chairperson, who

As the 1986 Jewish Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal enter 8 the campaign final months, General Cam-
paign chairman John Streng calls on the community
for united commitment.
Dear Friend:
In a world full of good causes, you may be wondering
why a gift to our people is so important. Well, I'd like
to respond to that question in classic Jewish style.
That is, by posing a simple question in return.
Ask yourself ... "If we don't give, who will?"
Who will offer the love, dignity and security so
urgently sought by our elderly here in North Broward
county? Who will help the young people who have lost
their way in our often confusing world? Who will sup-
port the many ways we care for each other from
day-care services to family guidance to educational
and learning cultural events here at home as well as
in Israel and elsewhere around the world.
Perhaps the answer to these questions is obvious.
Jews must help Jews.
Which is why I'd like to askyou to join me in giving
as much as vou can to our Federation/UJA Annual
Campaign. If vou've already given, think about talking
to your friends about a contribution. If you have never
given, the need has never been so urgent.
After all, wherever we live, we Jews are one people.
Your gift will help us share a common destiny ... of
freedom, of progress, of love.
And that is so very important for each of us.
General Campaign Chairman

Mission Participant Shares Poland With Judaica High School Teens
The teenagers sat motionless as .
Dr. Clark Galin, Poland Mission
participant spoke about the
lifeless Jewish community of
Poland. "Why do they stay"? ask-
ed Erin Fineberg, daughter of
Libo and Estelle Fineberg of Plan-
tation. "They stay because at this
point, they are too old to leave
Poland." And so the story of
Poland's Jewish community un-
folded before the 9th grade at the
Agency Focus
Judaica High School of North
Broward. The ninth grade, involv-
ed in the second trimester at the
high school, was studying the
Holocaust. As part of their final
Celebrating Purim In Israel
Purim is a happy holiday in Israel,
celebrated by grownups and
children unabashedly dressing up
in costumes, singing, dancing in
the streets, displaying homemade
floats the works. Purim
celebrates the ancient Jewish vic-
tory in which Queen Esther,
motivated by her relative
Mordechai, discredited and
defeated the wicked Haman Get's
hear those greggers out there!)
These photos show Ethiopian
Jewish children who were helped
at a Jewish Agency absorption
center near Rishon LeZion,
celebrating Purim with children
from Rishon LeZion's disadvan-
taged neighborhood of Ramat
Operation Moses brought these
Ethiopian Jewish children to
Israel in 1984-85. Operation
Magic Carpet (1949-50) and
Operation Ezra (1950-51) brought
the parents of many of the others.
In all, Ramat Eliahu has large
groups from Yemen, Iraq, Moroc-
co, India, Iran, Brazil, Argentina
and Romania reflective of the
rich cultural fabric within the
Israeli Jewish culture today in
the oldest Jewish settlement in
modem Israel, rishon leZion (first
in Zion).
The children have in common
their Jewish heritage, love of
Israel, and efforts to help
themselves by aid of American
Jews through the United
Jewish/Federation Appeal/Pro-
ject Renewal Campaign.

paper, the class was asked by
teacher Rachel Keller to either in-
terview a Holocaust survivor or
bring in someone to share his
story with the class. Jill Zwerner,
knowing Dr. Galin, president of
Temple Beth Israel of Sunrise,
asked Dr. Galin to share what he
saw of Poland with the class.
Dr. Galin's story was almost in-
comprehensible to the teenagers.
He spoke of the thousands of
children's shows that he saw in
rooms at Auschwitz, he spoke of a
Poland which was once the center
of Jewish life in Eastern Europe
and he spoke of a Poland now
devoid of a thriving Jewish
As many times as our teenagers
have heard the horrors of the
Holocaust, Dr. Galin's moving
words brought tears to many of
the teens eyes. Many know him in
the community, and here was so-
meone they knew, telling of these
horrible stories. Most will never
forget his inspiring words.
The Judaica High School of
North Broward often asks com-
munity members to share their ex-
perience with its classes. Now in
its 7th year the school numbers
over 250 teenagers in grades 8-12,
with two campuses in North
Broward County. Courses at both
branches will include Missionaries
at the Door, Modern Medicine and
Jewish Law, Literature of the
Holocaust, Family Relationships
in the Bible, Jewish Short Stories,
Sociology of the American Jew,
and Behind the Headlines.
Judaica High School provides a
five-year curriculum, devised by
educational directors of the
synagogues in consultation with
Mrs. Sharon S. Horowitz, Prin-
cipal and Dr. Abraham J. Git-
telson, director of Education.
Courses are also credited toward
Confirmation in respective con-
gregations which the students at-
tend. The faculty has been
selected from those teachers in
the community who are both
knowledgeable in Jewish studies
and who have a special rapport
with teenagers.
Students who complete the five-
year program and who are enroll-
ed in special teacher training
courses are eligible for Sunday
School Certificates awarded by
the Board of License of CAJE. In
addition, North Broward students
can participate in the Akiva

teenagers meet with other
teenagers throughout South
Florida for study, recreation,
prayer and an examination of
Jewish identity. In addition there
is a series of special trips cor-
responding to each grade level.
An exciting development in this
year's Judaica High School will be
the sponsorship of students to at-
tend programs in Israel. Through
a grant from the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale,
Judaica High School students will
be able to attend summer pro-
grams in Israel. Incentive grants
will be available for any student in
the Judaica High School who has
completed three years of their
Jewish education. Special pro-
grams in the High School also con-
tinue on a weekly basis. In the
planning stages for the current
semester are Jewish cultural ac-
tivities, Israeli folk singers, dance
troupes, Holocaust survivors and
holiday celebrations.
Sharon S. Horowitz, Principal
of the Judaica High School of
North Broward, noted that "the
high school years are crucial in the
determination of an individual's
life long values. Judaica High

And one to imitate.
Quite happily, of this idea
I was made aware
One morning while I was
To say the Yahrzeit
prayer. .
I tried to put tefillin on,
But couldn't make a start:
The loop for my phylactery
Had fallen apart!
How could I say my Kaddish
Was soon to come along
When there I stood
With a broken thong?
But then a man named Max
He set the whole thing
And I was deeply touched
by this

Goldsteins To
Leave The USSR
tional Conference on Soviet Jewry
(NCSJ) has confirmed that Isai
and Grigory Goldstein of Tbilisi
have been given permission to
leave the Soviet Union. They are
expected to go to Israel. The
Goldsteins were among the
founders of the present-day
repatriation movement among
Soviet Jews.
The Goldsteins, both of whom
are physicists, have been
refuseniks since 1971. Over the
years, they were periodically
harassed and questioned by the
KGB. Grigory, the older of the
two brothers, was arrested for
"parasitism" in 1978 and sentenc-
ed to one year in a labor camp.
Although fired from their jobs,
they have been working as televi-
sion repairmen, and in other
related technical jobs.
Recently the brothers, together
with Isai's family, which includes
his wife Elizaveta, their son Avi,
his mother-in-law, and their
mother, were on a list of 19 Jews
in five families submitted by
Senator Edward Kennedy (D.,
Mass.). Following a visit to
Moscow earlier this month.

At The UJA Young Leadership Conference:
Focus On The Plight Of Soviet Jewry
2,000 young Jewish leaders from
across the country rallied at
Lafayette Park near the White
House in an effort to help keep at-
tention focused on the plight of
Soviet Jewry in the months ahead.
The demonstrators, who were
here for the United Jewish Appeal
Fifth National Young Leadership
Conference, heard a string of
speakers stress the need for con-
tinued pressure on Moscow in the
wake of last month's prisoner ex-
change that.brought freedom for
Soviet Jewish activist Anatoly
Scharansky, and with an eye to
the still-unscheduled second sum-
mit meeting between President
Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail
"The window of opportunity is
open not because of Soviet good-
will, but because of what the
Soviets desire to achieve at the
summit," declared Morris Abram,
chairman of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry.
Abram has stressed in the past
that any U.S. effort to achieve an
arms reduction agreement with
the Soviet Union will inevitably be
influenced by the extent to which
Moscow abides by agreements
already in force, specifically the
Helsinki Accords of 1975, with
their provisions on human rights.
Proposing a new symbolic
strategy in the Soviet Jewry cam-
paign, Rep. Jack Kemp (R., N.Y.),
a likely contender for the
Republican Presidential nomina-
tion, recalled Scharansky's ac-
count of how the Book of Psalms
sustained his spirit during much of
his time in prison.
"I would like to suggest that we
flood the Soviet Union with the
Book of Psalms," Kemp announc-
ed to applause and cheers. "That
was the book that kept Scharan-
sky and his hope alive and indeed
gave him the love of freedom."
The speakers appeared to send a
collective message to Moscow that
the release of Scharansky was not
being viewed as significant when
the Soviet authorities continue to
harass and jail Hebrew teachers
and other Jewish activists and
prevent thousands Of others from
"We are overjoyed that Tolya
Scharansky is a free man after too
many years of suffering," Rep.
Tim Wirth (D., Colo.), quoted
from a statement by refusenik
Naum Meiman in response to
Scharansky's release. "But his
release is not a victory for us,
because we are now further away
from reaching the goal that Tolya
fought for when we struggled
Meiman's statement, Wirth
said, "reminds us that nothing has
changed," he concluded. Meiman,
whose daughter, Olga Plum, lives
in Wirth's Congressional District,
has been seeking to obtain an exit
visa for his wife to be treated for
cancer in the West.
Abram called the release of
Scharansky "the Soviet poicy of
release by eyedropping."
"It is no solution; it is only a
cover-up; it is only a deceit,"
Abram maintained. ,
From Lafayette Park the
demonstrators marched behind
Kemp, Wirth, Abram and other
speakers in a candlelight walk to
' the Washington Monument.
