Area Holocaust Remembrance Day May 6
The North Broward Jewish community will hold its annual observance of Yom HaShoa,
Holocaust Remembrance Day, on Tuesday, May 6, beginning promptly at 5:30 p.m. at
Temple Beth Am, 7205 Royal Palm Blvd., Margate. This community-wide commemora-
tion is open to the public at no charge, and is being co-sponsored by the Holocaust Sur-
vivors of South Florida, the Community Relations Committee of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale and Temple Beth Am.
May 6 coincides with the 27th day of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the day of Yom
HaShoa, the Holocaust Remembrance Day as observed in Israel and the date tradi-
tionally marked by Jewish communities around the world. The full week of May 4
through May 11 will be observed nationally as the 1986 Days of Remembrance of the
victims of the Holocaust, as called for by the United States Holocaust Memorial
Council in accordance with an Act of Congress.
Holocaust Remembrance Day is an annual observance in the North Broward communi-
ty, with some 1400 people, Jews and non-Jews, attending last year's commemoration. As
in years past, the service will include a processional of children bearing candles, followed
by a special candlelighting ceremony of the Holocaust Menorah. The beautiful stained

The Students' Battle
Editor's NatK Tht B'nat B'rxth Hillel Foundation is a major
recipient of the Federation. United Jeu-ish Appeal campaign. This
is one of the ways your generous campaign gift supports the ritai
work accomplished by the young men and women on our college
campuses, aiding our brethren in IsraeL
In many ways, the students' job is tougher. Pro-Israel adults
are not. for the most part, subjected to anti-Israel diatribes at the
office or the supermarket. They aren't condemned as imperialists
or fascists at PTA meetings. Nor are their own meetings broken
up by well-educated thugs. It just doesn't happen that way in
Highland Park. Chevy Chase or the San Fernando Valley. It has
happened that way on campus.
It has never been easy being a pro-Israel campus activist. Back
in the late 1960's, I found the job to be a small form of torture.
Arab and pro-Arab students would break up our meetings. Anti-
Israel Jewish students would disrupt our May 15 Israeli In-
dependence Day celebrations. Flying fists and flying chairs often
settled arguments when logic failed.
Worst of all. though, was that our small band of activists receiv-
ed little guidance from the outside. There was no network of pro-
brad students operating nationwide and no organization that
saw advancing the pro-Israel cause as its prime role on campus.
We were alone.
That has all changed in recent years thanks to the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee's Political Leadership Develop-
ment Program (PLDP) which together with the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation is ending the isolation of pro-Israel activists
on campus. It is teaching them that they are not alone and that
there are tried and true methods of promoting Israel on campus.
In March. AIPAC and Hillel completed a nationwide political
training seminar that reached over 1.300 students. Jonathan
Kessler. director of AIPAC's student programs, said that the suc-
cess of the seminar demonstrated that "there is a tremendous
resurgence of student activism on campus." Five seminars were
held at Yale. Ohio State. Brandeis. the University of Texas and
Stanford. Each was a regional event with students in attendance
from neighboring states. Richard Fishman. Kessler's associate
and chief organizer of the seminars, points out that at the Univer-
sity of Texas, there were students who came from as far away as
Arkansas and Louisiana. At Stanford, he says, students came
from Oregon and Washington state as well as from all over nor-
The programs on each campus were similar. They included a
Senator or a House member who discussed the role of Congress in
U.S.-Israel relations. AIPAC staff people spoke about
developments in the Middle East and in Washington. There were
workshops on building pro-Israel campus coalitions, on combat-
ting anti-Israel propaganda, and on using student power to back
pro-Israel candidate^ for political office.
Encouraging political involvement is a growing part of
AIPAC's mission. Dan Manasehin. director of the AIPAC depart
ment which includes the campus program, says that be thinks it is
"essential that we do everything we can to get pro-Israel students
involved politically. In this democracy, political action is the prime
way to influence events. Knowledgeable students can not only
fight the pro-Israel battle on campus, they can also help ensure
that our government continues to support a secure Israel.
The students themselves agree. James Duell. a student at the
University of Arkansas, says that the Texas workshop "helped
me fed less isolated. It showed me many ways that I mysdf could
make a difference and it linked my campus to the wider pro-Israd
community." Robert Lederman. AIPAC's student organizer at
Yale, says that the workshop at his campus "not only hdped give
me the tools to be effective now. it hdped set the stage for a
lifetime of involvement."
In fact, it is students like Lederman and Dudl who are the most
impressive part of the program, AIPAC staffer Jeremy
Rabinovitx. a speaker at the Brandeis event, says that "these
students are terrific. They get up early on a Sunday morning to
listen to speakers, to engage in discussion, to debate and to learn.
It is particularly striking when you ""it*'* all the talk about the
apathetic students of the eighties. The students I saw were
anything but apathetic. They were dedicated for the cause of
Israel, to a strong U.S.-Israd relationship and to involvement in
the democratic process on a wide variety of issues. It's enough to
make you a lot more optimistic about the future."

Colorado Springs, Colo. (JTA)
"Nearby." as they say in the Far
West, there is a remarkable
Jewish Chapel, with remarkable
people, at the U.S. Air Force
Academy 50 miles south of
Denver. All for the Jewish cadets.
It is a decorous synagogue of
unusual dimension, being a circle
within a square, suggesting strict
monotheism, belief in One God,
and the global mission of the U.S.
Immediately, you notice
something else, even more
unusual. It is the 'Ner Tamid,"
the Eternal Light. Neon-bright,
this Ner Tamid hangs in the
Chapel to the right of the Holy

athletic, and spiritual.''

The Cadet Chapel, housing the
three separate faiths, is
distinguished by the 17-aluminum
modern "tetrahydrons" which
soar 150 feet above the ground. It

U.S. Government-accredited en-
dorsing agency for Jewish
chaplains. JWB-CJC operates on a
policy of consensus in its relation-
ships with the U.S. Defense
Department, a model for the
civilian Jewish society.
Chaplain Schwartxman comas
from a distinguished rabbinic
family. His father is Rabbi Sylvan
Schwartxman, HUC professor of
education who retired in 1980.
Before coining to the Academy,
Chaplain Schwartxman served at
Keesler Air Force Base and at
Ramstein Air Force Base in Ger-
many. It was in his third year at
Hebrew Union College that "I
studied in Isreal, where I met my
wife Ziva, a Sabra." They are the
parents of Micah working on 10
and liana leaning on seven.
"My wife Ziva is really 50 per-
cent of what I am doing," says
Chaplain Schwartxman. "She is
surrogate mother and big-sister to
the Jewish men and women
cadets. Plus Jewish holiday and
party planner, cook-baker-and in-

the times we get these cadets (age
17 to 20') and they begin to share
in each other's Jewish life. When
they leave the Academy they are
going to bases in Mississippi or
Texas, or elsewhere, where
perhaps there is no Jewish com-
munity. I want them to take some
type of Jewish life with them."
At the Air Force Academy 35
cadets are Jewish, three women.
More are needed. High schoolers

JWB Reaches Out
There has been an intensified
year-round program of outreach
and service provided the Jewish
personnel at the academies by the
JWB Chaplaincy Commission and
local Jewish communal leaders.
"The Jewish consciousness of
the cadets has been raised con-
siderably by the work of JWB, the
Jewish chaplains and Jewish lay
leaders," Rabbi Barry H. Greene,
Chairman of JWB-CJC, says
"We sensitize these young men
and women to the importance of
maintaining Jewish life within the
military environment," Gerald
Ostrow, Pittsburgh, Pa., a JWB
vice-president and chairman of its
Armed Forces and Veterans Ser-
vices Committee, adds, "The
cadets will not only be in positions
of Jewish leadership within the
armed forces. They are also poten-
tial leaders for positions in their
civilian communities after they
leave the service."
Of the volunteer 12 officially
designated cadet falconers (the
falcon is the Academy mascot),
one is Jewish Cadet Lawrence
Cooper, 21, of Lido Beach, Long
Island, N.Y. He's also on the
Dean's List. Larry is active in the
Cadet Jewish Chapel Squad.

Israelis Want Rotation
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A majority
of Israelis want the Labor-Likud
unity coalition to continue on the
basis of the rotation of power
agreement under which Premier
Shimon Peres will turn over his
office to Likud leader Yitzhak
Shamir next Oct. 13, according to
a public opinion poll taken by the
Hanoch and Rafi Smith Research
But the same poll found that
Israelis, by a 61-29 percent
margin, saw reasons that would
justify breaking up the coalition.
Among the respondents, 54 per-
cent favored the rotation of power
agreement, up from 47 percent in
a poll conducted last August.
Nineteen percent would like to see
the coalition continue under the
leadership of Peres, down from 24
percent in August.
Only five percent preferred a
narrow coalition headed by Peres,
down from six percent in August;
and three percent favored a
narrow-based government headed
by Shamir, down from five per-
cent. Thirteen percent favored
Twenty-nine percent of the
respondents could think of
nothing that would justify dissolv-
ing the coalition. But 27 percent
said the coalition could not con-
tinue because of sharp personal
and party disputes among its
members. Another 14 percent
wanted to see the coalition ended

Seder Symbols The Matzah Of Hope This Is The Matzah Of Hope
The Seder Table is a stage on
which we symbolically re-enact
the events associated with the
deliverance of the Israelites from
slavery. The Haggadah is the text
of the Seder Service which "tells"
the story of the Exodus.
MATZAH Unleavened bread
eaten to recall the hurried depar-
ture from Egypt. The three Mat-
tot represent the three classes of
Jews: a) Kohanim (the priests); b)
Levites (Assistant priests); and c)
Israelites (everyone else).
ARBA KOSOT Four cups of
wine are drunk by each person at
the Seder because of the four ex-
pressions of deliverance found in
Exodus 6:6-7: "I am the Lord, and
I will bring you out from under the
burdens of the Egyptians: and I
will deliver you from their bon-
dage; and I will redeem with an
outstretched arm, and I will take
you to me for a people."
KARPAS A green vegetable
dipped in salt water. All formal
dinners in antiquity began with an
hors d'oeuvre. The green
vegetable is symbolic of spr-
ingtime. The salt water in which it
is dipped is to make it palatable
and is a reminder of the tears shed
by our oppressed ancestors.
MAROR Bitter herbs are
eaten because the Egyptians "em-
bittered" the lives of our
CHAROSET A mixture of
nuts, apples, and wine whose tex-
ture resembles the clay out of
which the Israelites were forced
to make bricks.
ZERO'A A roasted
shankbone placed on the Seder
dish which is symbolic of the
Paschal Lamb sacrificed in Egypt
and in the days of the Temple.
BAYTZAH A roasted egg
which represents the festival of-
fering (Hagigah) made by pilgrims
in Jerusalem in the days of the
Temple. Its shape connotes the
continuing cycle of life. Also,
unlike most foods which become
softer the longer it is boiled, the
egg becomes harder, thus sym-
bolizing the resistance and deter-
mination of our people to oppres-
sion and persecution.
CUP OF ELIJAH Elijah is
considered to be the messenger
who will announce the messianic
era. Our celebration of our
redemption in the past would not
be complete without a symbolic
representation of our hope for an
even greater future redemption.
We invite Elijah to our Seder to
express this hope.

As we observe this Festival of
Freedom, we recall that Soviet
Jews are not free to leave without
harrassment; to learn of their
past; to pass on their religious
traditions; to learn the language

and rabbis of future generations.

sought to live as Jews and struggl-
ed to leave for Israel the Land
of our Fathers but now languish
in Soviet labor camps. Their
struggle against their oppressors
goes on. They will not be

door is opened for the symbolic
entrance of the Prophet Elijah (all

recites the following):
On this night of the Seder, we
remember with reverence and

wicked than Pharoah who enslav-
ed our fathers in Egypt. Come,
said he to his minions, let us cut
them off from being a people, that
the name of Israel may be
remembered no more. And they
slew the blameless and pure, men
and women and little ones, with
vapors of poison and burned them
with fire. But we abstain from
dwelling on the deeds of the evil
ones, lest we defame the image of
God in which man was created.
Now, the remnants of our people
who were left in the ghettos and

the wicked ones for the sanctifica-

FROM GERALD KRAFT
B'nai B'rith International
The celebration of Passover, the holiday marking the escape
from slavery to freedom of the Jewish people some 4,000 years
ago, is a celebration of life and liberty, an expression of hope and
a new beginning.
Unhappily, bigots and tyrants still flourish. Indeed, each press-
ing day brings news of violence against peoples whose culture, or
color, or religion sets them apart. Racial and religious hatreds
divert our attention and sap our strength at a time when our
energy and resources should be pitted against mankind's common
enemies: famine, disease, ignorance and poverty.
The Passover story is the glorious tale of our people's libera-
tion. But it is also a reminder that many still seek freedom in the
contemporary world. Let those of us who are free re-dedicate
ourselves to helping others, still bound in servitude, win their
freedom. And let Passover remind us that our own precious
freedom, achieved through blood and sacrifice, must be guarded
vigilantly, for it is a beacon to the world. '

New Evidence Of Waldheim's Past
Friday, April 25, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 7
By REINHARD ENGEL
VIENNA (JTA) It was
nearly impossible for Austrian
presidential candidate Kurt
Waldheim not to have known
about the deportation of
thousands of Greek Jews from
Salonika when he was based near
that city as a Wehrmacht officer
during World War II, two
Austrian news publications charg-
Further, both the Socialist daily
Neue Az and the weekly news
magazine Profil published reports
which are said to link Waldheim's
Nazi military unit, Abteilung IC of
Heeresgruppe E, to later deporta-
tions of Greek Jews from the
The reports are part of the
mounting allegations against the
former United Nations Secretary
General asserting that he had lied
about his past war-time activities.
The conservative presidential can-
didate has vehemently denied the
charges and said in a weekend in-
terview that the defamatory cam-
paign against him has finally
Neue Az and Profil both said,
based on research in Greece, that
it was impossible for Waldheim to
have known nothing of the ghet-
tos and transports. The publica-
tions' reporters had questioned
local witnesses in Salonika and in
the small nearby village of Arsaki,
where the staff headquarters of
Heeresgruppe E was situated dur-
ing the war.
"It was impossible that he did
not know anything," said Leon
Benmajor, the 70-year-old presi-
dent of the tiny Jewish community
of Salonika. Another woman,
Hella Kunjo, an 80-year-old
Karlsbad resident married to a
Greek Jew, added: "He must be
The deportation of almost
50,000 Jews from Salonika was a
major operation. At least one-
fourth of the population of that
Greek town was first forced to
wear the large yellow Star of
David, then rounded up in ghet-
tos, moved to a central camp, and
then in railroad cars to the con-
centration camps of Auschwitz,
Birkenau and Bergen-Belsen.
According to the reports, this
completely changed the character
of Salonika, where the Jewish
population had not lived in seclud-
ed quarters but was spread all
over the town. After the deporta-
tions, shops, stores and offices in
the town were deserted, and trade
almost broke down.
Waldheim has always contended
that he had not known anything
about those deportations until
earlier this year when his unit was
connected with them in the media.
He argued that the headquarters
where he served on the staff of
General Alexander Loehr had
been off in the mountains, and he
had been unable to take notice of
The two Austrian reporters
found that the staff building was
situated well above Salonika with
a scenic view of the city and no
obstacles in between. Large
transports must have been visible
from the headquarters structure,
they argued in the reports.
Inhabitants of Arsaki, which has
been renamed Panorama, told the
reporters that since not very
many of them were willing to
work for the Germans, townspeo-
ple would come up to do the cook-
ing and cleaning. They must have
reported about the goings-on
down there, they added.
Another witness, who was
quoted in both the Profil and Neue
Az reports, was a Greek col-
laborator with the Germans who
is still not accepted among the
local population. Asked whether
the German officers, whom he
described as noble and educated
men, had known something about
the deportations, he said, "Of
course they knew. Every small
child would know, every dog,
Local newspapers at that time
also mentioned the deportations.

wrote. "Finally the cleaning has

our enemies, and this we do not
mind. No one minds if he gets rid
of an enemy or of a disease."
The news publications also said
that while Waldheim's unit was
not directly involved in the depor-
tations from Salonika, it had been
directly informed about the action
by Adolf Eichmann. According to
Neue Az and Profil, Eichmann
was in Salonika in February, 1943
to give orders for the deporta-
tions. At the meeting, an officer
from Abteilung IC was present,
the publications said.
Despite not having played a role
in the deportation of Jews
Salanika, Waldheim's unit is alleg-
ed to have played a role in the
deportation of Jews from the
Aegean Islands in 1944. Both
publications quoted military
documents released in Freiburg,
West Germany, where the East
Aegean commander ordered the
Heeresgruppe E to begin the
deportation of all Jews who had
no Turkish citizenship.
It was Waldheim's task to deal
with such reports, Profil charged.
Neither Waldheim nor Herbert
Warnstorff, who, as Lieutenant
Colonel was then the commanding
officer of Abteilung IC, remember

Federation/UJA Helps Yaffa
Editor's Note: There are a thou-
sand stories about the Ethiopian
Jews your gift help settle in Israel.
Yaffa is 11 years old. She stands
in synagogue in her hand-me-
down clothes, clutching her
prayerbook. Her finger traces
each word as it is read to her.
"Here?" she asks, every few
lines. "Isn't it here?"
Yaffa began learning Hebrew
when she arrived in Israel five
months ago. She now reads
enough to follow, and is beginning
to gain confidence in her skill.
She came to Israel from
Ethiopia with her mother, sister
and brother. Her father is dead.
"What happened to your father?
Was he sick? Did he die in the ar-
my? On the journey?" she was
"Dead," is all she answered.
Yaffa's sister is also called
It is Shabbat, and she sits with
me and other UJA represen-
tatives for lunch. With big eyes,
she watches carefully, taking her
knife, fork and spoon how and
when we do.
"What's 'knife' in Amharic?"
we ask her. "What's 'spoon'?
'Knife' and 'spoon' she
translates into a guttural sound
with a wide smile. But there is no
Amharic word for 'fork.'
The melon to start the meal is
new to her. She tastes it cautious-
ly, and enjoys it. Chicken she has
had before, but she struggles to
cut it from the bone.
"Shall I help you?" asks the

The theme of the 1986 Jewish Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign. One People, One Destiny, is not a poetic aspira-
tion. No, it is a clear statement of contemporary reality. The cam-
paign itself is so familiar that the community tends to take it for
granted. But it has an astonishing history and rests upon a com-
plex network of mutually supportive institutions. It deserves to
be better appreciated and understood.
The roots of the campaign process lie in the ancient world.
Jewish social institutions designed to protect the weaker
members of society emerged in biblical legislation. For instance,
the Bible permitted only the landless poor to harvest the corners
of farmers' fields. In medieval times, when Jews were not permit-
ted to own land, other means were developed to serve the same
In the early years of this century, mass immigration to the
United States brought forth institutions for immigrant aid. Later
the condition of Jews in devastated Europe after World War I
and, later still, European refugees fleeing Hitler, inspired enor-
mous efforts from American Jewry.
The rise of Israel created an entirely new kind of challenge.
Upon achieving independence. Israel admitted hundreds of
thousands of refugees from Europe and the Arab lands. Israel
automatically became the focus of all the institutional aid set aside
for refugee needs, but on a much vaster scale and in greater con-
centration than anything attempted before.
The result was a change in perception. Helping the refugees in
Israel was not only charitable but an act of nation building. The
effort caught the imagination of Jewish people everywhere. Over
the years, projects in Israel have become the best known and most
exciting aspects of the campaign incentives.

first time. Ten area pharmacists
met to form the division and plan
their inaugural event in the form
of a cocktail party, to be held Sun-

The Condominium Cabinet of
the Fort Lauderdale Campaign,
which represents condominium

Seder For Pesach
1. What Does Seder mean?
The Hebrew word "seder" means "order" and refers to the
religious service and festive meal observed in Jewish households
on Pesach. Seder derives from the same root as the Hebrew word
"siddur" (prayer book). Just as the siddur contains the order of
prayers for daily, Shabbat, and festival services, so is the seder a
prescribed order of prayers, readings, symbolic explanations, and
songs related to Pesach. The Pesach seder is the only ritual meal
in the Jewish calendar year for which such an order is prescribed.
Hence its name.
2. Does the Seder have biblical origins?
Yes. The seder has a number of scriptural bases. A section in
Exodus (12:3-11) describes the meal of lamb, unleavened bread,
and bitter herbs which the Israelites ate just prior to the Exodus.
In addition, three separate passages in Exodus (12:26-27, 13:4,
13:8) and one in Deuteronomy (6:20-21) enunciate the duty of
parents to tell the story of the Exodus to their children. We also
know that a special meal was connected with the paschal offering
which Jews of ancient times brought to the Temple in Jerusalem
The meal, the symbols, and the retelling of the Exodus account
eventually became basic elements of the seder as we know it
3. When did the Seder as celebrated in modern times begin
to take shape?
Around the year 70 C.E. when the Temple in Jerusalem was
destroyed by the Romans. With the priestly paschal sacrifice and
meal no longer possible, and with the Jewish community in exile
and in ritual upheaval, a new religious service, the seder, emerged
as a means of preserving historical memory and the symbol of an-
cient traditions. The Mishnah (Pesachim 10) describes a seder
with many of the elements found in our contemporary ritual. The
Kiddush, Four Questions Exodus Story, symbolic interpretations,
Hallel Psalms, and other prayers are all mentioned as part of the
seder celebration of 1,900 years ago.
4. When do we hold Seder?
The seder is held on the eve of the 14th day of Nisan in the
Hebrew calendar, which may fall in March or April of the secular
year. Reform Jews and Jews in Israel usually hold only one seder.
Traditional Jews outside of Israel usually hold seders on each of
the first two nights of Pesach.
5. Where should the Seder be held?
It is customary to conduct the first seder in the home with the
family, relatives, and friends. In recent years, many congrega-
tions have begun to hold community seders at the temple on die
second night of Pesach for the entire congregation. There is,
however, no rigidly prescribed location for the seder.
May we hold more than two Seders?
Yes. There is no maximum. As a result, congregations, Jewish
organizations, and interfaith groups often conduct seders on
other nights of the festival. These seders serve as an additional
source of inspiration, Jewish learning, and Jewish understanding
The order of the seder is contained in a special book called the
THE SEDER TABLE
As the time for the seder approaches, after the house has been
cleaned and the chametz removed, be sure that your seder table
includes the following:
1. A Haggadah for each participant
2. Festival candles and candlesticks
3. A Kiddush cup and wine for the festival Kiddush
In addition, every participant should have his or her own wine
glass. We drink four cups of wine during the seder service as a
remembrance of the four promises which the Torah tells us G-d
made to our people in Egypt: I will bring you out''; I will deliver
you"; "I will redeem you"; "I will take you to me for a people."
(Exodus 6:6-7) Many Jews add a fifth cup of wine, calling to mind
the plight of Soviet and Syrian Jews and/or our commitment to
the State of Israel.
4. Elijah's cut
Jews consider Elijah to be a symbol of a potential Messianic
Age. We thus set aside a special cup as an expression of our hope
and confidence in the ultimate betterment of society.
5. Three whole matzot
Three whole matzot should be set before the leader of the seder.
Jewish custom has been that these matzot are contained in a
special three-section matzah cover.
Why three? The top and bottom matzot correspond to the two
chalot which tradition ordains for Shabbat, an extra portion for a
special day. The third piece represents the matzah which Jewish
law specifically ordains for Pesach. This third, or middle matzah
also serves as the afikoman, or dessert, which is hidden away as
the object of a search by children at the seder. Over the centuries,
the three matzot have acquired special symbolic associations.
Some say they represent the three patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac,
and Jacob. Others associate the matzot with the three categories
of Jews in ancient times, Cohen, Levite, and Israelite.
6. The seder plate
The seder plate, also placed before the leader, contains the
various symbolic foods referred to in the seder itself.
A. A roasted shankbone symbolic of the paschal offering
brought to the Temple in Jerusalem in ancient times. Many Jews
also see the shankbone as a symbol of G-d's "outstretched arm,"
helping the Jewish people in time of trouble. It is of interest to
note that the Samaritans and Falashas in the Middle East and
Africa, even today, sacrifice a lamb on Pesach.
B. Maror or bitter herbs usually a horseradish root or ro-
maine lettuce, symbolic of the bitterness our ancestors experienc-
ed as slaves in Egypt.
C. Karpas a vegetable, usually parsley, symbolic of spring
and its spirit of hope, as well as the Jews' undying faith in the
future. Any green vegetable is permitted, and many Jews use let-
tuce or celery instead of parsley.
D. A roasted egg which traditionally symbolizes the continu-
ing cycle of life. It also reminds us of the special festival offering
brought to the Temple in Jerusalem in ancient times. In addition,
there are those who see the egg as a symbol of the Jewish people's
will to survive. Just as an egg becomes harder the longer it cooks,
so the Jewish people have emerged from the crucible of persecu-
tion as a strong and living people.
E. Charoset usually a combination of apples, wine, walnuts,
and cinnamon which symbolizes the mortar that our ancestors us-
ed to make bricks in Egypt.
F. A dish of salt water symbolic of the tears our ancestors
shed in Egypt.
7. Symbolic foods for each participant
Because the seder actively involves every member of the fami-
ly, certain foods should be at each place setting.
A. A wine cup
C. Maror (usually horseradish)
E. Salt Water
F. Karpas (usually parsley)
G. A hard boiled egg
Fighting between the Shi'ite
Amal militia and gunmen in
Palestinian Arab camps in Beirut
escalated recently with 18 killed
and 60 injured (Voice of Lebanon,
March 31). Amal reportedly has
been trying to prevent PLO fac-
tions from reestablishing
themselves in Beirut and south
Lebanon, and Palestinian groups,
perhaps aided by the pro-Iranian
Shi'ite Hezbollah, have sought to
increase attacks on the Israeli-
backed security zone in southern
Lebanon and on northern Israel.
Meanwhile, artillery shelling
and car bombings in Christian
areas intensified. The executive
committee of the Lebanese
Forces, the major Christian
militia, accused Syria of direct in-
volvement in the shelling "to im-
pose a unilateral solution and
hinder the use of Arab and inter-
national good offices. Syria has
sought to tighten its control over
Lebanon ... It has turned
Lebanon into a staging ground for
terrorism" (Voice of Lebanon,

Passover The Seder Dish
The Passover table is different
because it contains a Seder dish
consisting of different elements,
each having a distinct symbolic
purpose and meaning: It com-
prises the following:

slightly roasted placed on the left
of the dish represents the special
festival sacrifice offered on the
14th day of Nisan in the Temple in
conjunction with the Paschal
ROASTED MEAT-BONE This

The BITTER-HERBS are a
reminder of the suffering of the
Jews at the hands of the Egyp-
tians who made their lives bitter
with hard labor. This is placed in
the center of the dish. The Talmud
suggests that lettuce be used for
the bitter herb since it tastes
sweet at first and then tastes bit-
ter. Likewise the Egyptians first
honored the Israelites and then

apples, nuts, cinnamon and wine.

into salt water and eaten. Accor-
ding to the Talmud this custom
was instituted to excite the in-
terest of the children. A further
reason given is that on the Seder
night all are in the category of
nobility who partake of hors
d'oeuvres before meal.
THE SALT WATER A dish of
salt water is used into which the
vegetable is dipped. Some say that
the salt water is a reminder of the
tears that were shed by the
Israelites in Egypt.
In order to remain different
from the other festivals, the Seder
service has certain special distinct
characteristics as follows:
1. THE THREE MATZOT Or-
dinary on any other festival or
Sabbath, two loaves of bread are
placed before the head of the fami-
ly. On the Seder night, however,
we use ther matzot. Two are to
substitute for the two loaves of
bread and the third matzo is for
the purpose of observing the ritual
eating of the Matzo and for use as
the Afikomen. It has also been
suggested that the three sections
of the Jewish people Kohanim,
Leviyim and Israelites.
2. FOUR CUPS: On the two
Seder nights each person is re-
quired to partake of four cups of
wine. The first cup of wine follows
the Kiddush, as on other festive
days and Sabbaths. The second
cup is taken at the end of the first
part of the Seder. The third cup
follows the grace after the meal.
The fourth cup is drunk at the end
of the second part of the Seder.
The number four is used because
God, when sending Moses to
deliver the Hebrews, made use of
four different verbs, all of which
3. CUP OF ELIJAH: Some
authorities believe that instead of
four cups of wine there should
have been five cups at the Seder
table because there is another
verb in the Bible which signifies
redemption. It was therefore
decided to have the extra cup and
entitle it "the cup of Elijah" since
all unsolved problems in the
Talmud await the decision of Eli-
jah. During the service the door is
opened for the arrival of Elijah.
At one time it was usual to leave
the door open throughout the
Seder as an invitation to
strangers to enter and participate
in the Seder. In the Middle Ages
when Jews sometimes had to keep
the Seder in secret because they
feared the possibility of attack,
this practice was abandoned and
instead, the door was opened for a
moment in symbolic welcome to
the Prophet. The figure of Elijah
is especially appropriate for
Passover since in Jewish tradition
he is the herald of the Messiah and
therefore points to a future period
of perfect freedom and peace.
4. AFIKOMEN a word derived
from the Greek which originally
meant the songs, dances and
dessert which followed festive
meals. This refers to the final
piece of matzo eaten at the end of
the Seder meal and symbolizes the
last meal (the Paschal lamb) the
Israelites ate in haste prior to the
Exodus. There is the custom of
the children hiding the Afikomen
and returning it on promise of a
reward. This is simply an addi-
tional incentive to the children to
maintain their interest
throughout the Seder.
5. RECLINING The master of
the house is required to recline on
a cushion when he drinks his wine
and eats his first piece of matzo.
This posture was a symbol of
freedom and independence in an-
HAGGADAH meaning "tell-
ing." The Haggadah contains the
story of Pesach, read during the
Seder, in fulfillment of the Biblical
command: "And thou shalt tell
thy son on that day, saying: it is
because of that which the Lord did

Gold Coast Council AZA recently concluded its Teen Flag Foot-

two divisions, the Northern, comprising teams from Plantation,
Coral Springs and Boca Raton, and the Southern, composed of
teams from Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, and North Miami

The playoffs were held on Sunday, March 23. In the first game
Palmach AZA of Coral Springs was soundly defeated by B'nai
Israel AZA of Hollywood and in the game which followed Genesis
AZA of North Miami Beach won out over L'Chaim AZA of Boca
Raton. The championship game, held one week later, proved to be
a hard-fought defensive struggle. At halftime B'nai Israel had a
slim 2-0 lead but then added eight points in the second half on a
quick pass over the middle and a successful two-point conversion.
Genesis AZA, previously undefeated, staged a good comeback
fort but could manage only a single touchdown. The final swire
was B'nai Israel 10, Genesis 6, entitling B'nai Israel to its third
consecutive AZA Football Championship.

CORAL SPRINGS COALITION
Stan Kane, newly elected Presi-
dent of the Coral Springs Area
Coalition of Jewish Organizations
has announced that, there will be a
meeting of the Coral Springs Area
Coalition at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday,
May 6 in the Community Center
Building at Mullins Park in Coral
This meeting is open to all in-
dividuals of the Jewish Communi
ty as well as organizational groups
in the Coral Springs and Quad Ci-
Since the purpose of the coali-
tion is to act as a common voice of
the Jewish community, we are
seeking new individuals to
revitalize the leadership and
management of the Organization.
Mr. Kane is also searching for ac-
tive people to help him prepare for
the 1986 Chanukah Festival.
Italian Defense Minister
Spadolini said that "we have
discovered tapes of telephone calls
from Genoa to Tunis, head-
quarters of the PLO, before the
hijacking." During the Achille
Lauro piracy Abbas told reporters
that he was acting to mediate an
end to the episode "at Mr.
Arafat's behest." Carli himself
outlined a meticulous plot Abbas
began planning 10 months before
the hijacking. Some analysts
believe it is unlikely that Abbas
did not at least consult with
Arafat, if not get his approval at
their meetings during this period.
After the hijacking Arafat told
Hungarian television that Abbas
led the PLF group loyal to him.
Arafat's top aide, Salah Kalaf
(also known as Abu Iyad) said on
Radio Monte Carlo that the PLO
"will not abandon Abu al-Abbas."
At the end of November Abbas
reportedly attended the PLO cen-
tral committee meeting in
Baghdad, chaired by Arafat.
Abbas remains a member of the
PLO executive committee, a post
to which Arafat appointed him.
Four of the suspects are in
custody. They were captured after
U.S. fighter planes forced the hi-
jackers' Egyptian airliner to land
in Sicily. The plane was en route
from Cairo, where the four had
halted the hijacking. Abbas and
another PLF official also on the
plane were allowed to leave Italy
despite U.S. protests. Italian
judges often try defendants in
absentia and the case could go to
court this summer.
Italian prosecutors asking for
an indictment against Mohammed
"Abu" Abbas and 12 other Arabs
for last October's hijacking of the
Achille Lauro cruise ship and
murder of American passenger
Leon Klinghoffer suggested that
Abbas may have acted against,
rather than with, PLO Chairman
Yasir Arafat. Genoa Deputy
Public Prosecutor Luigi Carli
charged that Abbas, head of the
Palestine Liberation Front (PLF),
staged the ship takeover to em-
barrass the more moderate
Arafat. According to the March
23 New York Times, PLO officials
recently alleged that Abbas had
shifted his loyalty away from
Arafat before the piracy.
However, just one month before
the hijacking, both Abbas and
Arafat addressed the PLF's con-
gress in Baghdad. Both praised
Iraq's position on the "Palestinian
revolution" and both attacked
Syria and Libya, which back anti-
Arafat factions of the PLO.

high schools, temples and
afterschool programs plus a
number of adults through
eleven different matzoh making
sessions taking place from March
30 through April 20 in JCC's
Soref Hall. The matzoh ex-
perience '86 will long be
remembered by all who took part!
Why do we eat Matzoh on
Passover? That question has been
significantly answered with a real
hands-on experience plus a movie
retelling the story of the Jews
slavery in Egypt and why they left
in a hurry with no time to raise
TWO PART PROGRAM
The classes coming in to the
Matzoh Factory were divided, half
going to see the movie, which also
shows a New York matzoh factory
in operation, and the other half
seating themselves at long tables
covered with clean white paper
and a long thin rolling pin at each
place. They change places
That's the time it takes from
the mixing of the dough (it's flour
and water only) to the rolling-into
a large pancake size circle, to the
piercing with a fork, to the hang-
ing of the dough circle on a long
thin stick, to its journey to the
oven and its baking in there under
Each participant gets his finish-
ed matzoh to take home with a
warning from Rabbi Denburg not
to eat it at the Seder because it
was not sufficiently supervised,
though it may be used as part of
the Afikomen to be hidden.
Both Rabbi Denburg and Rabbi
Beston who are active in their
own Lubovitcher congregation in
Coral Springs are "educators" for
which co-sponsored the Matzoh
Factory with JCC. The rabbis are
sent out into the community to
present various programs of
education for the Congregation.
What can we say about the Mat-
Sandy Lobel joins the JCC staff
as director of Membership
Development and as coordinator
for Singles Activities. Having
worked successfully with
numerous groups of people during
the past seven years, she is well-
equipped to handle both
assignments, with many plans on
her drawing boards for both pro-
spective member and "singles"
FROM WEST TO EAST
Lobel comes to the East Coast
of Florida from the West .
namely, Marco Island. She was
associated with James Brooks
Productions, Inc. as meeting plan-
ner for convention groups. The
company, based in Miami, booked
all kinds of programs and enter-
tainment as well as arranging a
variety of large group functions.
While in Marco, Lobel devoted a
good deal of time towards the
establishment of a viable Jewish
community. She was a founding
member of the island's Jewish
Communtiy Center, led High Holi-
day services there as a volunteer
and implemented many other pro-
grams of religious significance.
ON THE DEAN'S LIST
Born and raised in Wilmington,
Delaware, Lobel was a Dean's
List Scholar at the University of
Delaware where she earned a
Bachelor of Science degree. After
graduating she worked at the
Wilmington JCC where she was
Unit Head, Counselor and a week-
ly religious class instructor.
Before moving to Florida in 1979,
she was an elementary grades
teacher in the Wilmington schools
and was also a Hebrew School
teacher during that period.
Lobel was coordinator of
Florida's West Coast Alumni
Association of the U. or Delaware
and was one of the two class
representatives invited to the
1985 Commencement by the
president of the University. Lobel
was named as an "Outstanding
Young Woman of America" by
the organization of the same name
in 1982. She has great interest in
Israel, has visited the country and
would love to go again, she says.
