A debate is shaping up in

in Chernobyl, the Ukraine.

Economic Planning, and Gi-

Report on UJA National Allocation Mission ...
Eyewitness Account on Romania's Jewish Community
Editor's Note: The following article was writ-
ten by Deerfield Beach resident Samuel K. Miller,
Federation vice president and chairman of the
Federation/UJA Condominium Cabinet. Mr.
Miller was selected as one of 29 leaders represen-
ting 16 major American Federations who par-
ticipated in the recent UJA National Allocations
Mission to Romania and Israel.
The question most frequently posed today is of
the need for United Jewish Appeal campaigns,
considering that the United States Congress,
with administration approval, has recently ap-
proved the sum of $4.5 billion as a grant for
military and economic assistance for our brethren
in Israel.
This question could readily be answered in part
by the recent UJA Allocations Mission to
Romania and Israel, where along with key cam-
paign leaders, we were able to receive a firsthand
look at the programs and budget of the Joint
Distribution Committee and the Jewish Agency
to review how funds were spent. And to discuss
human need which were still unmet due to a lack
of funds. Both the JDC and the Jewish Agency
are major beneficiaries of the Federation/UJA
Samuel K. Miller (right), discusses agricultural set-
tlements in Israel with the Jewish Agency's Yehuda
Dekel, in the Arava,
While the U.S. Government's contribution of
$4.5 billion looms large indeed, it is necessary
that the infrastructure of Israel and that of the
Jewish communities outside of the U.S. be
strengthened so that the social needs and some of
the economic needs can be answered. Primarily
by the Federation/UJA campaigns both here in
the States, but also in other communities where
freedom rings.

Federation 'Watchline'Readies For Action ...
Community Telephone Contact
The Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale's Com-
mittee for Jewish Elderly an-
nounced the introduction of the
"WatchLine," a new phone ser-
vice for housebound lonely people.
In a special announcement at
the FLORIDIAN offices this
week, Committee chairman
Daniel Cantor and co-chairman
Leo Goodman, stated, "We are
concerned with the number oPour
elderly here in North Broward
County, who are unable to leave
their homes, are isolated or have
no contact with friends or
neighbors, and have decided that
telephone contact is vital to their
health and well-being. With this
conclusion, the Outreach Services
subcommittee, under the
chairmenship of Samuel K. Miller
and Rabbi Kurt Stone, are for-
mulating plans for the "Wat-
chLine," a telephone alert contact
service conducted by community
volunteers. The Committee in-
cludes Marilyn Citron, Gladys
Daren, Claire Socransky and Flori
The service will be a personaliz-
ed way of providing that "extra
special caring" that is so impor-
tant to the confined or frail sick,
who will know that someone is
concerned and cares, according to
the committee chairmen.
In response to the FLORIDIAN
question concerning who will be
called, when, and how many times
a day, the chairmen said, "The
service is under the auspices of
the Jewish Federation's Commit-
tee for Jewish Elderly, and will
have interested, loving Jewish
people, volunteers who will call
each day and ask how they feel, if
they have any problems, are they

will say more than just, "are you
there?" ThiB will be a social con-
tact with a person. This will be ac-
complished over the phone. If we
have 50,000 people to call, we will
get that many volunteers."
When asked where the phone
central will be located, the
volunteers will be located in the
Jewish Federation building;
however, there will be a separate
telephone exchange and the calls
will not go through the Federation
switchboard. They indicated that
this would all be accomplished
when enough names are received
and the program can begin
In order to accelerate the "Wat-
chLine," names are necessary.
They continued, "Whether it's a
child that wants us to contact a
parent or a spouse, we want the
referral name and those people
will be contacted. There is no limit
as to the number of names or the
number of people called. For ex-
ample, if we get a card from so-
meone who asks us to call his
Leo Goodman
parent, we will notify the person
who sent the card that we have
contacted the parent and will be
calling him on a regular basis. The
parent will be contacted and asked
if he wants to get a phone call a
day and if he agrees, then we will
call him, and also notify the re
questee that we are doing same. It
will cost little or nothing for us
and will cost nothing for the peo-
ple we call."
They explained, "In order to put
the first phase of "WatchLine" in-
to operation, we are requesting
that any residents of the Greater
Fort Lauderdale community, who
wish to add their name to the list
of those persons to be contacted,
or who would like to add the name
of a relative, friend, neighbor or
associate to please submit their
name, address and phone number,
to the Committee for Jewish
Elderly, Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, 8358

Lauderdale, FL 33321, or call
Sandy Brettler, committee
associate at 748-8400.

Bnai Zion Contributes $1,000 For Passover Assistance
To Jewish Family Service Of Broward County

Zion; Dr, David Sachs, president Jewish Family Service of
Broward County, Edie Grien, president, Chapter No. til, Bnai
Zion; Lynn Schweitzer, chairperson, Passover Project, Bnai
Zion; and Iris Gersh, administrative secretary, Bnai Zion.
Members of the South Florida
Maccabean Chapter No. 211 of
Bnai Zion have contributed $1,000
to help the Jewish Family Service
of Broward County make this
Passover special.
The Bnai Zion Chapter cited
from the Haggadah "Kal Dichfin
Yetie Veyechol" "Let all who
are hungry come and eat" in their
fund-raising request. The
chairperson of the local fund rais-
ing effort was Ms. Lynn
Schweitzer. The project was en-
dorsed by the Chapter President,
Edie Grien.
This Passover fund raising pro-
ject was the first joint venture
between the Bnai Zion, an
organization founded in 1908
upon the cardinal principles of
Americanism. Zionism and
Fraternalism. Most of the ac-
tivities that are supported by the
organization are in Israel.
The members of the local
chapter recognized the need to
help the less fortunate here in
South Florida and conducted this
special fund raising project to
assure that these Jews would also
be able to celebrate Passover with
the special foods necessary to
complete the holiday.
The expression of caring shown
by the membership of the local
chapter has sent a message to the
needy here in our community that
there are people who "share and
care" and thus provide hope for
better times.

Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale/United Jewish Appeal
Stressing the need in a recent
interview with the FLORIDIAN,
Gladys Daren, Cash Collection
chairperson, indicated that this is
the best time to help our people by
providing the benefit that will not
only benefit the men, women and
children in North Broward coun-
ty, but also in Israel and in more
than 30 other countries around
the world.
Daren emphasized the impor-
tance of taking advantage of con-
tributing securities in what is cur-
rently a high stock market. She
suggested the following:
If you've held securities for at
least six months, you can
tribute them to the Federation
and take a tax deduction for the

appreciated value.
For Example: Suppose stocks
purchased more than six months
ago for $1,000 are worth $1,500
when you give them to the
1. The Federation credits you
with a $1,500 gift.
2. You pay no capital gains tax
on the $500 increase.
3. You may take a $1,500 deduc-
tion on your taxes.
"Without cash, our hands are
tied," she said. "We cannot reach
out to the Jewish needy, our
troubled, our poor and our
refugees. Nor can we help Jewish
communities rightly fearful of ter-
rorism. In France, in Rome, in
Vienna, Federation/UJA is at
work. Assisting the needy, help-

I) reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort l^uderdale
Editors Note: The following is an article written by Miriam
Sobel of Fort Lee, N.J. about her childhood in Poland and Russia.
Cancum 1900, recomended to me by a friend as one of the best
restaurants in Cancum, Mexico, was crowded with tourists that
Wednesday evening. The soft light of the Tiffany lamps, and the
dark paneled walls hung with prints and pictures, enhanced the
turn-of-the-century decor. A medley of American show tunes
drifted from the piano above the hum of conversations.
Suddenly, a new melody caught my attention.
"That's 'Rozshinkes Mit Mandlen', "I said to my husband.
"What, in Cancun?"
"I'd know that song anywhere. I've got to talk to the piano
player," I said, determined to get to the bottom of this mystery.
I walked over to the young woman at the piano, and asked
casually, "What was that song you just played?"
"Oh, that's 'Rozshinkes Mit Mandlen*," she said with a Mexican
"Are you Jewish?"
"No, she laughed, "but I like Jewish music."
I don't often think about my childhood in Poland and Russia
during the Holocaust. Busy with my life, those terror-filled years
recede from my memory as if they all happened to someone else.
But then, something minor, like a song or a picture, propels the
past into the present, and I'm a small child again.
This old Yiddish lullaby conjures up the image of my sad,
wrinkled bubbeh as she sings me to sleep.
I feel myself clinging to her in the wagon of a Russian train as
German bombs whistle down and explode around us. People jump
off the wagons, trying to hide in ditches. My parents also want to
leave the train, but bubbeh refuses to move. "Our lives are in
Gods' hand," she says, and continues to pray silently. Finally, the
bombardment stops.
Miraculously, our train-car is not hit, and we come out into the
; bright sunshine. "My gnwdrftother Rachel- carries*me,'trying to
cover my eyes with-her hand. Hut J push her hand away, and see
the bloody craters, communal graves.
The German army pushes deeper into Russia sweeping
everything in its path. Horrible news reach us in the small town of
Octiaberski, in the foothills of the Ural moutains; my mother's
younger sister has been killed when the Germans bombed the
hospital in the Mogilev area where she was a patient. My mother's
youngest brother, Isaac, and his wife and baby, have been round-
ed up together with the other Jews of a tiny village near
Bialystock, and shot in a mass grave,
The Russian peasants are burning their crops rather than let
them fall into the hands of the advancing German army. Death
through hunger becomes widespread.
My grandmother, determined that we survive, gives us her por-
tions of meat, refusing to eat it on the grounds that it's not
kosher. She puts to use her knowledge of herbs and edible grasses
to supplement out meager rations.
I recall how she loved and took care of me while my parents
worked from dawn till dusk. Throughout these bitter years, she
found the time to tell me stories of paupers and princes, angels
and demons, and sing songs, especially 'Rozshinkes Mit Mandlen',
the lullaby that I loved so much.
"But how do you know that song?" asked the dark-haired
woman at the piano.
"My grandmother used to sing it to me. But why do you like
Jewish music?"
She smiled. "You see," she replied, "In Jewish music, even if
the melody is sad, the underlying chords are strong, so the song is

Scott Frieser Bar Mitzvah
Twinned With Soviet Brethren
On Saturday, April 19 Scott
Frieser, son of Carol and Paul
Frieser, was called to the Torah as
a Bar Mitzvah at Temple Beth
Israel in Sunrise. Mark
Yuzefovich, son of Ekaterina and
Leonid Yuzefovich, should also be
called to the Torah this year as a
Bar Mitzvah. Unfortunately, that
will not happen, because Mark and
his family live in the Soviet Union.
Though both boys cherish the
same Jewish heritage, only Scott
has the freedom to celebrate it. In
a beautiful and moving ceremony,
Scott symbolically shared this
milestone in his life with Mark, his
Soviet twin.
Bar and Bat Mitzvah Twinning
is a concept involving a growing
number of boys and girls who
share their ceremony with Jewish
youngsters in the Soviet Union.
The Twinning ceremony is one
way to dramatize the contrast bet-
ween the freedom with which
American Jews can fulfill their
obligation to Judaism and the op-
pression under which Soviet Jews
are denied this opportunity.
Twinning has been en-
thusiastically received in large
and small communities around the
country, providing a vital connec-
tion between American and Soviet
youth. Locally, the Twinning pro-
gram is coordinated by the Com-
munity Relations Committee
(CRC) of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale. Like
hundreds of other youngsters,
Scott Frieser contacted the CRC
for the name of a Soviet child and
suggestions for the Twinning
ceremony. Like hundreds of other
youngsters, Scott wrote to his
Soviet twin, but received no reply.
Many children, understandably,
become discouraged after several
letters go unanswered and they
begin to lose interest. Not.Scott
Frieser. Scott kept writing to his
new friend Mark, and Scott's
mother Carol, kept writing to
Mark's mother and to Mark's
grandmother, who lives in
Jerusalem. Mark's grandmother
receives many twinning letters
from throughout the United
States, and she cannot respond to
all of them, but something about
the Frieser family's warmth and
sincerity touched her and she has
kept in correspondence with

them. Through his grandmother,
Mark knows about Scott, but
Mark has never received any of
Scott's letters.
Frustrated by this, Scott wrote
to President Reagan and Soviet
leader Gorbachev. "I don't
understand why letters cannot be
sent through to my friend in
Russia, or from him. I have a hard
time understanding why he and
his family can't leave Russia on
their own free will."
With the cooperation of Con-
gressman E. Clay Shaw, the letter
was personally delivered to the
White House and Scott received a
letter from the President, ap-
plauding him for his efforts on
behalf of Mark Yuzefovieh.
Through the efforts of Con-
gressman Larry Smith, the
Yuzefovich family's name was ad-
ded to the list of Refuseniks which

Ellen Novoseletsky is a shy, ar-
ticulate 12-year-old who has the
world at her fingertips. She is
completing the seventh grade at
the Hebrew Day School of Fort
Lauderdale and is excited about
her upcoming Bat Mitzvah, May
Life wasn't always this bright
for the Novoseletsky family.
Seven years ago, they were
unable to practice their religion in
Kiev, USSR, their homeland.
Thanks to the Jewish Federa-
tion's Russian Resettlement pro-
gram, the Novoseletsky family
emigrated to the United States in
Almost immediately, Ellen, who
was five at the time, was enrolled

the Hebrew Day School and has

Knowing no English, Ellen was
taught to speak it in kindergarten.
She is also fluent in Russian,
Hebrew, and she speaks a little
"Ellen is a joy to have in the
school," stated Fran Merenstein,
director of the Day School. "She is
a straight-A student who learns
quickly and gets along with her
classmates." .

Number 19
Ellen Novoseletsky
in the United States. She
understood why her family left
the USSR and is very excited
about her Bat Mitzvah.
Feeling a strong atachment to
Judaism, denied the practice of it
in Russia, Ellen decided to have a
special ceremony to com-
memorate her 13th birthday.
On Friday May 23, the Hebrew
Day School and Temple Beth
Israel, Sunrise, are helping Ellen
to achieve her dream by sponsor-
ing her Bat Mitzvah.
Helping otherp to achieve their
dream. Ellen will shar -r Bat
Mitzvah with her friend Eugene
Kobrun, who lives in Kiev and
who is denied the right to
celebrate his Bar Mitzvah. The
program by which a youngster in
the U.S. shares his/her Bar/Bat
Mitzvah with a Soviet youngster
is called "twinning."
"I wanted to share my Bat Mitz-
vah with my friend Eugene, who
is unable to have one," Ellen
stated. "I also wanted to let the
people in Russia know that we
care about them and haven'!
forgotten their plight."
An empty chair will be placed on
the Bimah at Beth Israel,
representing Eugene.
"I think that it is a beautiful
gesture on Ellen's part to share
her celebration with her Russian
friend," Merenstein stated.
"I want to send a message to my
friend and others like him not to
give up hope and to keep trying to
get out," Ellen said.

tion on "twinning," please con-

Cong. Smith Urges USSR To Allow
Adopted Refusenik To Emigrate
THE JEWISH Federation's Kosher Nutrition Programs and
Jewish Community Center's WECARE Program were pleased to
accept donations of Passover food and cash from their good
friends of Bnai Brith Women. Shown from left, Sandra
Friedland, director of Elderly Services and Blanche Bombart,
Community Services Chairperson of Hope Chapter. The generous
Passover donations from many congregations and organizations
helped to ensure that passover foods were available to a large
number of isolated elderly and families in need.
THE ELDERLY participants of the Jewish Federation's Adult
Day Care Program, the Gathering Place, were delighted to have
the experience of baking matzohs with the Chabad Lubavitch of
Fort Lauderdale. Shown seated are Eva Perlatein, Goldie Loss
and Jennie Bregman with Rabbi Yossi Biston, Rabbinical stu-
dent Dovid Rappaport, and Rabbi Yossi Denburg.
After having learned that his
adopted Soviet refusenik Yuri
Tarnopolsky, had been released
from prison last month, Con-
gressman Larry Smith (D-Florida)
has sent letters to Soviet Premier
Mikhail Gorbachev and Charge
d'Affairs Oleg Sokolov urging
them to grant Tarnopolsky and
his family permission to emigrate.
Tarnopolsky, a 51-year-old
organic chemist, was released
from Chita Labor camp on March
16 after serving a three-year
sentence for "slandering the
Soviet state." He had applied to
emigrate to Israel in 1976 and
soon lost his professional standing
in the scientific community. In
1983 he was arrested and sent to
prison; his only crime was to main-
tain a Jewish identity in the Soviet
Union. Since his imprisonment,
Tarnopolsky has lost the sight in
his right eye and suffers from
chronic heart and gall bladder
ailments that require skilled
medical treatment, a special diet,
and medications.
"Ten years have now passed
since the Tarnopolskys originally
applied for exit visas," wrote
Smith. "Now, Dr. Tarnopolsky
suffers from poor health and his
prison term has ended. It is ob-
vious that Dr. Tarnopolsky does
not pose a threat to the Soviet
Union. Soviet officials should
allow the Tarnopolskys to leave
the USSR in peace."
New Director Named
Nahshon has taken the position of
executive director of the Jewish
Federation of the Greater East
Bay, succeeding Mel Mogulof.
Smith has fasted in the name of
Yuri Tarnopolsky for the past
three years, and both the Florida
congressman and his wife have
sent a number of letters of sup-
port to the chemist and his wife
and daughter.
Meanwhile, Smith also has sent
letters to General Secretary Gor-
bachev and Charge d'Affairs
Sokolov to protest the planned
destruction of the Ashkenazic
synagogue in Tbilisi, the capital of
Soviet Georgia. The Congressman
learned of the Soviet plans to
destroy the synagogue after
receiving a number of letters from
Jewish leaders in South Florida.

Area Teens Trace Their Heritage .
Alexander Muss High School in Israel Program

Imagine being a 16 or 17-year-
old high school student spending a
semester in the land of your
ancestors, retracing their steps as
you are making your own.
This tremendous and challeng-
ing opportunity has been accepted
by 39 youngsters of the Fort
Lauderdale, Boca Raton and
Hollywood areas as they depart on
an eight-week program entitled
the Alexander Muss High School
in Israel.
The largest exchange program
in Israel, High School in Israel of-
fers students eight-weeks of stu-
dying 4,000 years of western
civilization and culture in addition
to their high school core cur-
riculum of math, science, foreign
language, etc.
High School credit is offered for
the classes that are taken in
Israel. If students receive high
enough grades, they may be eligi-
ble for college credit.
"The beautiful part of the pro-
gram is that after the students
learn about historical facts and
places, they then tour them and
are able to see and touch what
they have learned," stated Bar-
bara Fellner, director of admis-
sion for Fort Lauderdale and Boca
The students departed on May
5-June 25 and will be studying at
two campuses Mosenson Cam-
pus at Had HaSharon and
Hadissim Campus at Natanya.
They will be joined by students
from all over the U.S., making the
number of students attending this
session 180.
According to Fellner, the pro-
gram is offered five times a year
- September, December,
February, late April and June.
The June program has few open-
ings and students are already
signed up for the fall.
"A key aspect of the program is
that the students are taught in
English by American teachers
who have chosen to live in Israel.
Hebrew is used on a minimal
level.*' Fellner stated.

Volunteers For Israel
Tourist activities throughout the world have resulted in mixed
emotions on the part of Americans who intend to spend their
vacations in the State of Israel. The potential tourist has delayed
his trip pointing out the hazards of travel. Fear not. The airline
with the best security in the world is El Al.
The terorist bomb that passed through British security was un-
covered by the Israelis immediately. The perpetrators were ap-
prehended. Nothing is left to chance when Israeli security checks
passengers and their luggage. They have proven that only their
security over the years has prevented any sort of mishap to its
planes and passengers.
Israel was on its way to economic recovery when the recent ter-
rorist activities began. Tourism is one of the major industries. The
recovery is slowly being reversed by tourists with second
thoughts about their safety. Do not allow the terrorists to
blackmail us and cause Israel's economic ruin.
Another way to help is available to you through the Volunteers
for Israel, an organization that sends people between the ages of 65 to Israel to do physical maintenance work in various
camps. The only cost to the applicant is the subsidized airfare and
a nominal registration fee. Food and lodging are provided at no
cost. The volunteer is taken on tours one day a week. For Shabbat
you can go to a hotel, stay on the camp, visit with friends or be in-
vited to spend it with an Israeli family.

column which will appear in

Hiihn, who is a Women's Division
vice president in charge of Foun-
dation and Missions.
The Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale is involved with
many activities which go beyond
fund-raising. There are groups
and programs to interest those in
many walks of life and stages of
development. In the following
issues we shall bring you articles
on each of these activities in
depth, but we would like to use
this opportunity to introduce our
readers to the "voice" of the
women of Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale.
The Shalom Neighbor program
under the direction of Susan
Canarick and Maria Frankel is
currently preparing a guide to
Jewish services in the Greater
Fort Lauderdale area.
Newcomers to this part of South
Florida will be welcomed
"Jewishly" to our community.
Susan Symons and JoAnn Levy
are forming a Women's Business
and Professional Group in con-
junction with the currently suc-
cessful Business/Executive Net-
work headed by Steve Lewin. The
monthly meetings of the B/E
Network, at Marina Bay, have
featured such diverse speakers as
Joe Robbie and Wolf Blitzer.
These programs have been so well
received by both men and women
that the success of a similar, but
more specialized network, design-
ed primarily for working women
is assured.
In Coral Springs, Esther Wolfer
and Gail Kuhn have been in-
strumental in developing "The
Coral Springs Connection." The
group has been hosted by various
couples and meets monthly to
discuss such diverse issues as "Be-
ing Jewish in a Non-Jewish
World" and "Israel, Right or
Wrong? Our Dual Allegiance as
American Jews."
Each month interested women
of all ages meet at the Federation
office for a lively exchange of
ideas on a variety of subjects.
They are members of "P.M. Net-
work," under the guidance of
Scholar-in-Residence, Abe Git-
telson. The present format has
been so successful that it will be
expanded after Labor Day.
Selma Telles, who chairs the
group, has announced plans to
meet the first and third Monday of
each month at 7:30 p.m. Discus-
sions will alternate between Bible
Studies and such self-contained
programs as "Israel and the
Jewish Women Today" and "Ter-
rorism: It's Effect on Our Lives."
At a recent meeting of the Com-
mittee on Foundations and En-
dowments, as W.D. Vice Presi-
dent of Foundation, I reported on
the excitement engendered by the
seminar on Women and Money
that was held at the Fort Lauder-
dale Library. Three excellent
speakers were most informative
on the subjects of investments,
wills, trusts and estate planning.
Future seminars are being plann-
ed which promise to be just as
President's Council was formed
by Women's Division several
years ago to provide a forum for
the presidents and executive of-
ficers of the many Jewish
Women's organizations' in our
community. This year it will be
under the guidance of our vice
president of President's Council,
Judy Henry. Subjects of interest
to each of the organizations is
discussed and community projects
are continually being launched. A
community calendar listing major
functions for participating
organizations clears the dates for
all concerned.
Federation Women's Wednes-
day, sponsored by Women's Divi-
sion, is an additional annual non-
fund-raising activity held in the
fall. This community awareness
program has brought us speakers
of local interest such as Ralph
Renick and Elaine Bloom. This
event is scheduled to take place on
November 5.
Gladys Daren has accepted the
appointment of Project Renewal
chair for this coming year. Addi-
tional funds are still needed to en-
sure that our brethren in our
Israeli adopted city of Kfar Saba
continue to live with dignity and
freedom. The Women's Division
has raised almost $10,000 from
the sale of Project Renewal
tribute cards over the last three
years. These cards are in
denominations of $5 and $25 or
more and are always available in
the office.
Hilda Leibo brought new en-
thusiasm to Women's Division last
year with her concept of "Play a
Day for UJA." Three golf tour-
naments were held with 400 par-
ticipants from Palm-Aire, Wood-
mont and Inverrary. Hilda has an-
nounced that the coming season
will bring additional golf clubs and
plans to include a tennis
Leadership Development, under
the vice presidency of Carole

more about their heritage, their
local Jewish community and in-

especially to this group of future
This coming year will bring a
new emphasis on Women's Divi-
sion missions. Plans are being for-
mulated, by Charlotte Padek and
Lois Polish, to have a second
"Roots" mission to New York in
November. UJA National
Women's Division has announced
a fall Leadership Mission to
Amsterdam/Israel from
September 14-26 and a Women's
Major Gifts Mission to
Paris/Israel from October 29 to
November 7. If you are eligile and
interested in going on any of these
trips please contact the Women's
Division office.
With the new campaign getting
under way our campaign chair,
Alvera Gold, has pledged to top
last year's mark of over $1
million. Plans have been announc-
ed to make 1986-87 one of the
most exciting fund-raising years
ever. In addition to the aforemen-
tioned activities, three major
fund-raising functions will be held
in the coming year. Every com-
munity has a capable team of
workers and each expects to see a
dramatic increase in women's
gifts to Federation.
The Board of Directors of our
Women's Division is headed by
our President, Esther Lerner.
This board consists of women who
reside in many areas of Greater
Fort Lauderdale and who are
from many different parts of the
country. Under Esther's capable
direction and guidance this group
has become a cohesive and
cooperative body, able to achieve
its goals in education, fund-raising
and community responsibility.
In future months this column
will focus on additional activities
and projects of the Federation
Women's Division of Greater Fort

Project Renewal Comes Of Age
International Acclaim For Jewish
Human Outreach Program
It began as an emotional call by
an Israeli Prime Minister to Jews
all over the world to eliminate
conditions "intolerable in a Jewish
State." Over the last nine years, it
has evolved into the largest and
one of the most successful at-
tempts at urban revitalization
ever undertaken anywhere in the
Project Renewal was discussed,
reviewed and evaluated by 400 ex-
perts from 30 nations at an Inter-
national Conference on Urban
Revitalization, which met in
Jerusalem recently.
Urban revitalization has become
an increasingly urgent concern in
nations throughout the industrial
and developing worlds. Project
Renewal, now operating in 82
neighborhoods throughout Israel,
is far enough down the road,
many experts believe, to look back
at what's been happening, judge
how well it's done, and share it
with others.
Project Renewal's special
features primarily the twinning
with Diaspora Jewish com-
munities, so crucial to its success
were examined at the Con-
ference, to see how thev could be
applied outside Israel. Bilateral
assistance programs to Third
World countries may perform the
essential role of the Diaspora com-
munities in revitalizing Asian and
African cities.
Urban renewal experiences in
other countries were added to
that accumulated in Israel. The
Conference heard papers on non-
profit housing in Denmark, urban
economics in the Philippines, ur-
ban development strategy in Fiji,
urban decay in Britain, urban
planning in Norway, urban decen-
tralization in the United States,
and cultural renewal in the
The constant focus, however,
was on Project Renewal in Israel,
and the lessons that could be
learned from it.
Project Renewal's importance
to both Israel and the Jewish peo-
ple was underlined by the public
figures who took part in the Con-
ference. President Chaim Herzog
hosted a reception for participants
on the Conference's opening day,
and Prime Minister Shimon Peres
presided over its formal closing at
the Knesset, awarding prizes to
the six young winners of Israel's
national Project Renewal art
Jewish Agency Executive
Chairman Arye L. Dulzin and
Housing Minister David Levy
served as the Conference's
honorary chairmen, representing
world Jewry and Israel the two
partners of Project Renewal. Jane
Sherman, the United Jewish Ap-
peal's National Project Renewal
Chairman, presided at the Con-
ference's ceremonial closing
The Conference was a valuable
reminder that Renewal is still im-
proving. For Renewal's American

Good Professional Campaign Teammates
If you're a member of a trade,

According to John Streng, 1986
General Campaign chairman,
"Our trade, industry and profes-
sional divisions are truly a
volunteer operation. Chairmen,
co-chairmen, honorary chairmen,
advisory chairmen and working
committees of individuals from
within each trade or profession
work together to solicit gifts from
their colleagues and competitors.
The techniques which they use are
many, including an annual fund-
raising dinner for each division;
telephone solicitation at phon-a-
thons; and face to face

Divisions include Attorneys,

that these groups are just the
beginning of what will become one
of the most important aspects of

... in time for Passover! Would
you believe that many Jewish
families in need live in our midst?
Yes, it's true. The statistics show
a growth we're not proud of the
number of single-parent families.
In addition to these, other Jewish
families exist in our town who
need help because of age, health
or disability. JCC's WECARE is
proud to say many of these
families could not have celebrated
Passover without the Center's
Holiday Baskets containing die
ritual foods and ceremonial items
necessary to prepare for the
. .. households in Broward
County were the grateful reci-
pients of holiday happiness pro-
vided through the efforts of
dozens of WECARE volunteers
who collected, contributed,
assembled and delivered in time
for a Seder celebration. Allyn
Kanowsky, WECARE Director,
heartily thanks the volunteers
some of whom collected funds
door-to-door in their con-
dominiums, others who formed
assembly line packing sessions in
Soref Hall kitchens and still
others who created a fleet of
delivery vehicles using their own
cars. Over 50 organizations par-
ticipated in the WECARE "mitz-
vah program" for Passover '86."
Ina Saster, head of JCC Adult
Services Department, announces

The fact-finding Mission became a reality,
when we entered the unique State of Romania.
Within Romania, funds are distributed through
the Joint Distribution Committee to the State
Jewish Federation. Romania is a most
remarkable country first because it reposes
within the bounds of influence of the Soviet
Union, and at the same time, the government
recognizes Israel and maintains full diplomatic
Heralded as one of the Jewish communities
most outstanding leaders, chief Rabbi Moses
Rosen, exerts an almost authoritarian influence
on the community of less than 24,000. His good
offices have helped the people to exercise their
Judaism on the highest possible plane and has
made it easier for them to be properly fed, housed
and taken care of even more so than the general
population. The schools are maintained by the
local community and Shechtah and rabbinical
supervision over Kasruth is adhered to very
strictly. The Jewish people maintain a community
center which distributes food packages and other
necessities to each and every member of the
Jewish community. The cost of the Romanian ex-
periment is approximately $5.25 million of which
$1.25 million is being borne by the local communi-
ty, and the remainder by the Joint Distribution
It is extraordinary how great is the devotion
and love of the people who are devoted to the ef-
fective use of these funds. There are several
Talmudei Torah, principal clinics for the elderly,
home for the aged and other life-sustaining ser-
vices. Each morning from a central kitchen
located in Bucharest, a convoy of trucks carry
some 810 packages of hot food prepared under
strict rabbinic supervision throughout the city
and outlining areas. The community also
dispenses free food to restaurants and medica-
tion to those persons in need.
We must never forget how there were some
800,000 Jews living in Romania prior to the
Nazis, half of whom were killed during the course
of the Holocaust. We visited in a place called
Yassi, which is the second largest community and
paid tribute to some 12,000 martyrs who were
murdered by the Old Iron Guard. It was a heart-
felt moment.
We learned that the young people are en-
couraged to go to Israel, and all measures taken
are sanctioned by the government. In fact, since
1967 approximately 800,000 have left Romania.
The Joint Distribution Committee never
forgets the urgent needs facing the people, pro-
viding rescue, relief and rehabilitation. The sense
of being in Romania is a very difficult one
because there are constant blackouts, very little
electricity and gas available. But one senses that
it is almost easier to be dependent upon the
generosity of the Jewish community than to be
independently wealthy because in the open
market, not many things are available.
One of the remarkable things about the Roma-
nian community is the dedication not only to
itself, but to the Jewish community overall and
especially to the State of Israel. It is so anxious
about the emigration out of Romania of the
young to Israel that it is a community intent on
self-liquidation, so that Jews can survive in the
Jewish Homeland.

SOVIET AUTHORITIES are planning to bulldoze one of the
few remaining synagogues in the Soviet Union and build a public
square in its place, the Simon Wiesenthal Center was informed.
In a letter to members of Congress last month, the Center
reported that the Ashkenazic Synagogue in Tbilisi, the capital of
the Georgian Republic, was slated for demolition.
CONTINUING ITS effort to crack down on drug trafficking,

Reconstructionists Denounce Council Rejection Vote
"At this critical time for
American Jewry, when the
pluralism of American Jewish
culture makes the search for
Jewish unity a burning communal
concern, this rejection by the
Synagogue Council of America
negates the very essense of its
mandate." With this statement,
Lillian Kaplan, President of the
Federation of Reconstructionist
Congregations and Havurot
(FRCH) vigorously denounced the
Council's decision to deny
membership to Reconstruc-
tionism, the fourth major move-
ment in American Judaism. She
was careful to point out, however,
that most of the leadership sup-
ported the admission of the
Reconstructionists. The Orthodox
exercised a unilateral veto.
Noting that the Council claims to
be "the umbrella for Jewish
religious life in America," Kaplan
stated that the rejection "does not
weaken our movement, but it does
demean the Council's credentials
in terms of religious leadership."
The Synagogue Council was
founded in 1926 by three major
synagogue movements of
American Judaism and their rab-
binical affiliates the Central
Conference of American Rabbis
and Union of American Hebrew
Congregations (Reform), the
Union of Orthodox Jewish Con-
gregations and Rabbinical Council
of America (Orthodox); and
United Synagogue and Rabbinical
Assembly (Conservative). Council
By-laws include the rule that a nay
vote by any of the six members
can veto any proposition put
before its board.
Since he Council was formed,
FRCH Executive Directors Rabbi
David Teutsch related, the
Reconstructionist Federation has
been the only other Jewish
religious organization to apply.
When it did so in January, 1985,
he said, the Council agreed to
review the application but in-
dicated that its By-laws contained
no procedural provision for admis-
sion of new members. Teutsch ex-
plained that after nine months of
delays, a sub-committee was ap-
pointed. It included represen-
tatives of the six founding bodies
and was chaired by Rabbi Wolfe
Kelman, Executive Director of
the Conservative movement's
Rabbinical Assembly. The sub-
committee's task was to study the
application of the Reconstruc-
tionists and make recommenda-
tions to the Council. Kelman did
so in January of this year, repor-
ting that he had encountered op-
position to admission of the
Reconstructionists but, as
Teutsch noted, "Not defining the
nature of such opposition."
Kelman was then asked by
Council President Rabbi Herbert
M. Baumgard to present a formal
recommendation at the scheduled
March Executive Committee
meeting. Kelman resigned as

chairperson and was replaced by
Rabbi Jerome Davidson. Under
Davidson the sub-committee
recommended a temporary com-
promise giving the Reconstruc-
tionists observer status. At the
Executive level even this was
vetoed by the Orthodox.
In decrying the vote, Teutsch
stressed that the structure of
Reconstructionism parallels that
of the other movements
represented in the Council and
that Reconstructionist member-
ship is currently undergoing rapid
growth. He cited the fact that the
Reconstructionist movement has
its own rabbinical college (in Wyn-
cote, Pennsylvania), its own rab-
binical association, and its own
organization of congregations. To
date, he said, the Federation of
Reconstructionist Congregations
and Havurot boasts 54 affiliates in
almost as many cities. "Our con-
gregations are located in most of
the largest Jewish population
centers of the country, and our
members are leaders in local
federations, branches of UJA, and
other areas of Jewish communal
life out of all proportion to their
numbers. What is more, the
Reconstructionist movement
holds great appeal for unaffiliated
Jews, acknowledged to be a key
group in shaping the future of
American Judaism." He conclud-
ed, "The Council's decision
demonstrates woefully insuffi-
cient commitment to pluralism on
the part of the Orthodox in the
American Jewish community.
"Reconstructionism, as one of
the four main streams of Jewish
religious thought and action in
this country, clearly deserves
equal partnership with the others
in the task of representing the
religious views of American
Jewry." Rabbi Ira Schiffer, Presi-
dent of the Reconstructionist Rab-
binical Association, endorsing the
views of Kaplan and Teutsch,
said, "Reconstructionism has
gained acceptance among increas-
ing numbers of Jews. Our college
is graduating ever increasing
numbers of rabbis, and
Reconstructionists are taking im-
portant positions in synagogues
throughout the country. In addi-
tion, the Reconstructionist move-
ment has proved to be a wellspr-
ing for development of havurot,
the groups that provide an appeal-
ing alternative for those struggl-
ing to find or retain their Jewish
identity in today's aasimilationist
The Jewish Reconstructionist
movement was founded 60 years
ago by Rabbi Mordechai Kaplan.
Its guiding principle is that
Judaism is an evolving religious
civilization a culture and a way
of life as well as a religious faith.
In the Reconstructionist view,
Jewish tradition must change with
the conditions of contemporary
life, so that Judaism can function
as a dynamic force in the life of
the Jewish people.
The oldest institution of
Reconstructionist Judaism is the
Jewish Reconstructionist Founda-
tion, which today coordinates the
Federation of Reconstructionist
Congregations and Havurot, the
Reconstructionist Rabbinical Col-
lege, and the Reconstructionist
Rabbinical Association.
A delegation from Ramat
Shalom, Plantation, including
education director Linda Harris,
will be attending the 26th annual
convention of the Federation of
Reconstructionist Congregation
and Havurot. The convention will
take place in Philadelphia from
May 29-June 1. Ramat Shalom
members will be participating in a
wide range of seminars and
workshops to aid the congrega-
tion's growth and development.
The theme of this years conven-
tion is, "Interfaith Dialogue."
Harris will also be attending a
special Educators Conference
that weekend, June 1 and 2.
