Greater Fort Lauderdale
professional business and
community leader, Sheldon
S. Polish, will assume the
top leadership role for the
1987 Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauder-
dale/United Jewish Appeal
campaign, it was announced
by Brian J. Sherr, Federa-
tion president.
At a special press con-
ference at campaign head-
Juarters on West Oakland
ark Blvd., Sherr said that
Sheldon Polish will be the
General Campaign chair-
man for the Jewish com-
munity's major philan-
thropy, which in 1987 will
work to raise tens of
thousands of dollars to
help continue the vital
work accomplished here at
home, in Israel and around
the world.
Polish, a partner in the ac-
counting firm of Ernst and
Whinney, One Financial
Plaza, Fort Lauderdale, is
renowned as one of South
Florida's most respected
certified public accountants,

programs.
Sherr stated that, "Our
community is indeed for-
tunate to have a man the
ealiber of Shelly Polish at
the forefront of this life-
S'vinr, life-sustaining ef-
rt. Within the past year,
tens of thousands of new
Jewish residents came to
live in North Broward and
the need for additional
human services has ex-
panded rapidly. This large
and sudden increase has
significant implications
for our community's
future."
Referring to the task
ahead, Polish said, "During
the past year, our appeal
received an unprecedented
response. Through the
generosity of our communi-
ty, the Federation/UJA rais-
ed the highest regular total
in our community s history,
but we cannot sit back on
our laurels, and in 1987
must achieve the funds
necessary to meet the
responsive and caring pro-
grams to improve the quali-
ty of life for all of our
brethren. We must go forth

Terrorists Should Not Deter Israel Tour

There are two Israels. The first is the Israel of the
evening news. That is the Israel of the Arab-Israel
conflict, of West Bank disturbances, of war threats,
and of politics. Then there is the other Israel. That is
the place where 4,000,000 people live, love, raise their
kids and spend the week deciding what they will do
on the weekend.
The first Israel can best be experienced from afar.
Israel's problems are more readily apparent on
American television than on Ben-Yehuda Street (any
of the Ben-Yehuda streets). As for the other Israel
the real Israel you can only experience it by being
there. For some reason, it just doesn't come through
on video tape.
That is why it's time to start thinking about going to
Israel this summer or autumn. Israel does not need its
supporters spending their time and energy agonizing
over its fate. Israel certainly doesn't need tears. It
does need support and, right now, support for Israel
can best be demonstrated by booking an El Al flight
and going.

PARIS The ad
ministrative governor of the
Champagne-Ardenne pro-
vince outlawed car registra-

"SS." Normally registra-

were SR and should normal-

OFFERING OF THE
FIRST FRUITS
The holiday of
Shavuot embodies not
only the meta-
historical phenomenon
of the Giving of the
Torah, but the glory,
pagentry and sense of
sacrificial devotion of
the offering of the first
fruits to the Almighty,
at the holy Temple in
days of yore. The ac-
count of pilgrimage of
the Jewish farmers
from all over Israel,
ascending to
Jerusalem, is one that
Shavuot
fills us with pride and a
sense of awe and
reverence.
How the Bikkurim
were Brought to the
Temple__________
The Mishnah in Trac-
tate Bikkurim has
preserved an interesting
picture of how our
ancestors brought their
First-Fruits to the Tem-
ple at Jerusalem in the
days of long ago.
"While the fruit was
still ripening, they were
set apart to be offered
as Bikkurim. As the
farmer walked through
his fields and orchards
and saw a ripe fig or a
ripe cluster of grapes or
a ripe pomegranate, he
would bind some reed-
grass around it and say,
'These shall be
Bikkurim.'
"When the time came
for taking the Bikkurim
to Jerusalem, the people
of the villages of each
Maamad (bounty'
there were 24 such
'counties' in Palestine)
assembled in the chief ci-
ty of their county. Here
they spent the night in
the open square of the
town. Early in the morn-
ing, the chief officer of
the county said, 'Arise
ye and let us go up to
Zion, unto the house of
the Lord our G-d!'
"The people who lived
near Jerusalem brought
fresh figs and grapes
and those who lived at
greater distances
brought dried figs and
raisins. First place in the
procession was given to

an ox (to be offered as a
Peace-offering) whose
horns were overlaid
with gold and upon
whose head was a
wreath of olive-leaves.
Flutes were played
throughout the march
until they drew near to
Jerusalem.
"On approaching the
capital, the people sent
messengers before
them. In the meantime
they decorated their
baskets of First-Fruits.
The poor brought wicker
baskets made of peeled
willow branches while
the rich carried baskets
overlaid with silver and
gold. In the bottom of
the basket they put
barley; above this they
placed wheat and above
the wheat, olives; above
the olives were dates
and above the dates
were figs. Between each
kind of fruit were layers
of leaves and all around
the figs along the out-
side run of the basket,
clusters of grapes were
placed. Pigeons were
also tied to the sides of
the baskets (for
sacrifices).
"When the proces-
sions reached the out-
skirts of Jerusalem, they
were met by the rulers,
the chief men of the
Kohanim and Levites
and by the treasurers of
the Temple. The craft-
smen and workingmen
of the city also joined in
welcoming them, rising
before them and saying,
'Brethren, men of such-
and-such a place (the
name of the towns and
Maamad), ye are
welcome!'
"The flutes were
played before them as
they marched through
Jerusalem to the Temple
Mount. Arriving there,
every man took his own
basket of Bikkurim and
carried it on his
shoulders as far as the
Temple Court. Even
King Agrippa carried
his basket himself. As
they entered the Court
of the Temple, the
Levites sang, I will ex-
alt thee, 0 Lord, for
thou has set me up and
not made mine enemies
to triumph over me.'
"Then each man, still
holding the basket on his
shoulder, would recite
the verses from the
Torah (Deut. 26:3-10) *I
profess this day that I
am come unto the land
which the Lord swore
unto our fathers to give
us.' Then he lowered the
basket from his shoulder
and held it by the rim.
The priest put his hand
underneath the basket
and waved it, the man
meanwhile reciting the
rest of the passage.
When he finished, 'And
now, behold, I have
brought the first of the
fruit of the land, which
Thou, 0 Lord, hast
given me,' he left the
basket by the side of the
Altar. Then he bowed
and went his way to re-
joice with his brethren."

The David Posnack Hebrew Day
School Building Groundbreaking
North Broward children will
have a new home next year. The
Hebrew Day School recently held
a groundbreaking for a new school
at the Plantation site on West
Sunrise Blvd. The new building
renamed the David Posnack
Hebrew Day School will open its
new doors in time for the fall 1986
school year.
"The community is very excited
about the growth of the Day
School which makes this building
project a necessity," said Dr.
Marc A. Schwartz, President of
the Plantation school. Our new
school building will provide and
enrich the educational needs of
the children in this community
grades kindergarten through
eighth grade. The school's
beautiful new home will be located
on the east campus of the Jewish
community center.
The David Posnack Hebrew Day
School groundbreaking included
many community dignitaries in-
cluding Rabbi Kurt Stone,
spiritual leader of Tamarac
Jewish Center, Dr. Marc A.
Schwartz, president of the school,
as well as many active leaders in
the Fort Lauderdale Jewish com-
munity. The groundbreaking com-
mittee consisted of Plantation
residents Mrs. Cathy Bierman,
Mrs. Marcia Schwartz, and Mrs.
Sharon Horowitz who were hard
at work in planning this exciting
event.
The David Posnack Hebrew Day
School will feature the latest in-
novative curriculum as well as
hardware to enhance the educa-
tional process. With a current
enrollment of over 200 students,
the day school seeks to integrate a
secular studies curriculum with its
outstanding Judaica program.
The new school will feature com-
prehensive computer facilities,
science labs for each classroom,
an expanded media center and
special programs in drama, music
and newspaper. The Hebrew Day
School focuses on integration of
curriculum, individuaHzation of
Dr. Marc A. Schwartz
programming and extended
enrichment program.
With a motto of "Give Your
Children The Best," the David
Posnack Hebrew Day School does
just that. Its new school building
will include over 30,000 square
feet of educational and ad-
ministrative space. This unique
environment will complement its
unique learning environment for
Elementary school children. The
program is fully accredited by the
Association of Independent
Schools of Florida and the
Hebrew program is under the
auspices of the Central Agency
for Jewish Education.
The school is committed to the
acquisition of Judaic knowledge as
well as to the development of
Jewish values, enlarging the
human spirit and the growth of
the individual. In addition, the
study of our classical texts and
literature is designed to create a
generation of informed intelligent
citizens, cognizant of the Jewish
heritage and proud of its history
and value. The utilization of
modern Hebrew as the language
of instruction in all areas of Judaic
studies, is a hallmark of our
school.
Hebrew Day School is a major
beneficiary agency of the Federa-
tion/UJA campaign.

Buried Alive:
The Plight of Soviet Jews
Editor's Note This article
appears in the June publication of
Reader's Digest and is an infor-
mative account of the persecution
of Soviet Jews.
To be a Jew in Russia today is to
face a living death: prospects for a
normal life an education, a job,
a future have never been
bleaker; yet even to ask to
emigrate is to risk persecution or
prison.
Can't we in the West help? Do
we have the will?
By LAWRENCE ELLIOTT
Anatoly Scharansky's walk
across Berlin's Glienicke Bridge
to freedom on a stinging cold mor-
ning last February exhilarated the
non-communist world. Scharan-
sky had been the animating spirit
of the beleaguered human-rights
movement in the Soviet Union.
Nervy, iron-hearted, he spoke for
the thousands of Jews refused
permission to emigrate, then
braved the Kremlin's wrath and
the KGB's inexorable retribution:
a crudely fabricated charge of spy-
ing, a sentence of 13 years in
prisons and a labor camp.
Now, having served nine years
including 403 days in a frigid
punishment cell where he was fed
only every second day here he
came walking into West Berlin,
unbroken, uncompromising,
mocking his tormenters to the
end. At the East Berlin airport
they had ordered him to march
straight ahead to a car that would
take him to the crossing point.
Said Scharansky, "I agree to
nothing proposed by the KGB"
and strode off to freedom, zigzag-
ging the whole way.
Millions rejoiced; some even
hailed his release as proof that
freedom was an irrepressible idea.
If so, it was an idea whose time
had not yet come for the rest of
the Soviet Jews and Scharan-
sky was the first to say so. He
vowed not to forget "those whom
I left in the camps and prisons,
who are still in exile, or struggling
for their right to emigrate." Their
true numbers are unknown, these
people who live in limbo, and for
them the only changes have been
for the worse.
For Jews in the U.S.S.R. today,
life on the always precarious
razor's edge has turned critical.
Jew-hating is in full fashion, with
anti-Semitism rampant in the
press, and on radio and television.
A Jew's prospects for an educa-
tion and a decent job are bleaker
than at any time since the Revolu-
tion. Every expression of Jewish
faith and tradition is under attack.
Yet never has it been harder for
Jews to leave. Emigration, which
exceeded 51,000 in 1979, was
below 1,200 last year.
Still they keep trying. There is
reason to believe that nearly half
the Jewish population of two
million would ask for visas if they
thought they could get them. At
least 30,000 have been turned
down some again and again.
"Refuseiuks" are official pariahs,
defamed, routinely dismissed
from their jobs, then prosecuted
for "parasitism." All they can do
is wait, watching helplessly as
their creative years slip away in
the day-in, day-out struggle to
survive.
YOUR NAME IS Nadezhda
Fradkova, and in 1978 you live
and work as a linguist in Len-
ingrad. You have been made to feel
that being a Jew conflicts with be-
ing a loyal Soviet citizen. You app-
ly for a visa to immigrate to
Israel.
They tell you your father will not
give his permission. You cannot
believe your ears. Your father
divorced your mother before you
were born. You are SI years old,
and you have never even met him.
You protest. And, as often as
possible, you reapplyfor a visa. To
no avail.
You lose your job and support
yourself as a cleaning woman and
by giving private language lessons.
Years pass. In March 1983 you
start a hunger strike. The KGB
drags you off to a hospital where
you are drugged and force-fed.
In May the KGB releases you,
but soon you are on another
hunger strike, and they come for
you again. This time, with a
friend's help, you smuggle an ap-
peal to the outside world. Your
captors let you go for the
moment.
^n May S, 1984, you are ar-
rested and taken to a psychiatric
hospital where you are registered
as mentally disturbed. In July,
you are kept in total isolation. In
September, you are judged fit to
stand trial.
Never in the history of Soviet
jurisprudence has the defendant in
a political trial been acquitted.
You are sentenced to two years'
imprisonment. In September 1985,
in a labor camp in the Arctic
north, you are put in a punish-
ment cell for starting another
hunger strike. When you finally
complete your sentence, you will
apply again for an exit visa They
cannot take away your hope.
ANTI-SEMITISM was banned
by law after the Revolution. But
under Stalin, Bolsheviks began
terrorizing those who clung to a
Jewish religious or community
life. Unlike every one of the other
100-odd nationalities in the Soviet
Union, Jews were expressly
deniea their own schools, as well
as Hebrew newspapers and books.
Synagogues were shut down and
rabbis persecuted. Even the
teaching of Hebrew was made a
crime.
The new Israeli nation handed
Stalin and every one of his suc-
cessors a fresh pretext for anti-
Semitism. When the Kremlin
reviled Israel and its "Zionist war-
mongers," the threat to Jews in

the U.S.S.R. was painfully clear.
But something remarkable hap-
pened: instead of being cowed by
this abuse of Israel, many Jews
found that their feelings of
Jewishness intensified, and this
served to rekindle Jewish thought
and tradition. Israel gave them
hope. Putting their fears behind
them, Jews began demanding the
right to emigrate. Though the
Kremlin responded with intimida-
tion by the secret police, raids and
arrests, the impulse to go swelled.
- nearly 230,000 let go over the
next 10 years.
What happened? Compassion
had nothing to do with it. On the
contrary, Moscow, aware that the
Jewish emigration movement had
attracted the sympathy of the
civilized world, coldly decided to
make it pay. In the judgment of
William Korey, director of inter-
national policy research for B'nai
B'rith, the Jews became hostages:
" 'You want Jews allowed out?'
the Soviets were saying. 'Well, we
want your wheat and technology;
we want credits and tariff
preference.' The more hope they
had for increased trade, the more
exit visas became available."
The question is why, in 1980,
they began closing the tap, until
today it is a heartbreaking trickle.
Had inherent Russian anti-
Semitism reasserted itself? Were
Viewpoint
The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not necessari-
ly reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
In 1970, after only 1,000 exit visas
were granted, the bravest of the
thousands who had been refused
defied authorities; they staged sit-
ins, wrote open letters to the
United Nations, even renounced
their citizenship. "Each person
has his quota of fear," said one.
"We have used up ours."
YOU ARE Vladimir Slepak.
Your father is an old Bolshevik
whose faith in the Revolution re-
mained unshaken even during
Stalin's purges and anti-Semitic
spasms, even though he nearly lost
his life. When you refuse to join
the Communist Party, your father
is appalled. Later, when you and
your wife, Mariya, put in for visas
to Israel, you hear that he goes to
the KGB and demands that you be
denied permission to leave.
You lose your job as head of a
television-research laboratory.
Your visa application is turned
down repeatedly. You and Mariya
make common cause with other
refuseniks in Moscow. You teach
yourself Hebrew and attend
classes on Jewish culture and
history. You are the rock of the
Jewish community. Anatoly
Scharansky is in your apartment
when the KGB comes to arrest
him.
The KGB watches you. Your
apartment is ransacked; you are
endlessly questioned, fired from
one job after another, twice put in
"preventive detention." A KGB of-
ficer says you cannot leave the
Soviet Union you know state
secrets.
"What secrets?" you ask. "In
our lab we were U years behind
the West."
He amiles. "That's the secret. "
The years pass. Your elder son
miraculously gets an exit visa.
One day in 1978, you and Mariya
hang a banner from your window,
"Let us out to our son in Israel."
For this you are arrested and
sentenced to five years of internal
exile. Mariya is given a suspended
sentence.
They send you to a place near the
Mongolian border where the
winter wind cuts like a knife. Here
Mariya joins you and you serve
out your sentence in a one-room
flat without water. When you
return to Moscow, you apply again
for a visa. You have no illusions.
But if the visa comes you could be
packed in an hour. You have
already waited 16 years.
IN THE MID-1960S, some 4,500
Jewish families who had applied to
emigrate years before were sud-
denly given exit visas. This was
unprecedented. But even more
remarkable was the rising tide of
Jewish emigration that followed
they losing too many productive
professionals? Was emigration en-
ding along with detente?
There is truth in all of this, but
the truest explanation lies in a
time bomb Moscow cannot defuse:
the shrinking percentage of Rus-
sians in the Soviet empire (an in-
flated 52 percent in the most re-
cent census), and the growing size
and restiveness of other national
groups. If Jews were allowed to
leave, how long before disaffected
Ukrainians or Lithuanians began
asking to be reunited with their
families in Sweden, Canada and
the United States? What if Esto-
nians, Uzbeks or Georgians began
demanding more cultural rights,
more autonomy? The men in the
Kremlin simply quit while they
were ahead.
Will the gates reopen? Listen to
what Mikhail Gorbachev said in a
French-television interview last
October: "There is no country
where Jews have as many rights
as in the U.S.S.R. If there is a pro-
blem of reunions among family
members, we accept that. When
do we prevent the resolution of
such problems? When the appli-
cant knows state secrets. Then we
give him the possibility of
waiting." In other words, nothing
is wrong; therefore, nothing will
change.
ONE DAY in 1978 you apply for
an emigration visa You, too, are
turned down. You lose your
Moscow residence permit. To
avoid being expelled, you must
hide from the KGB and give up
your job as an English teacher.
You are Yuli Edelshtein, age 20,
and in the days ahead you face the
worst the Soviet state has to offer.
You feel you are marking time;
the visa will come. Waiting, you
teach Hebrew to young people, at
do your friends Aleksander Khol
miansky and Dan Shapiro.
The teaching of Hebrew is no
longer illegal in the U.S.S.R., but
all the unofficial teachers in
Moscow, perhaps 50, have been
visited by the police and warned to
quit. Few do. In the summer of
1984, several Hebrew teachers are
beaten and jailed. Aleksander
Kholmiansky is arrested, accused
of stepping on flowers in a public
park. He spends 10 days in jail.
Released, he is immediately ar-
rested again for "hooliganism."
The rest of you walk a narrow
line. "Don't even cross the street
against a red light," you warn
your students.
It doesn't help. After your house
is searched by the KGB, you are
arrested on September 4 on false
drug charges. Your students are
interrogated; Dan Shapiro's home
is searched. He is arrested for
refusing to identify himself and
for attacking a policeman.
At your trial in December a
parade of paid witnesses stumble
through false accusations until
even the judge is embarrassed.
Nonetheless, you are sentenced to
three years' imprisonment. Six
weeks later, Aleksander Khol-
miansky gets a year and a half.
In the summer of 1985 your wife,
Tanya, is allowed to visit. She br-
ings news of Dan Shapiro. In June
he appeared on Soviet television in
a carefully rehearsed presenta-
tion, and condemned the Jewish
activist movement as slanderous
and anti-Soviet. In return, he was
given a suspended sentence. You
tell Tanya that Dan must not be
blamed; the KGB has so many
ways to break a man.
Tanya complains to the camp
commander that you have been
mistreated. He replies that they
mean to beat the religion out of you
one way or another. In March you

After Scharansky
Now that the overwhelming excitement over Anatoly Scharan-
sky s release from nine years of Soviet imprisonment has passed,
the continuing reality and somber thinking sinking in.
Sdiajansky's release, of course, is a blessing for himself, for his
wife Avital, and for the thousands who rejoice with them and
respect the integrity that he and Avital so stoically demonstrated.

BBYO
BBYO HOLDS ANNUAL
SPRING CONVENTION
The Gold Coast Council of the
B'nai B'rith Youth Organization
recently held its Annual Spring
Convention, April 18-20 at the
Hollywood Beach Hilton. Coor-
dinated by the Council's Vice
Presidents, Darren Frost and
Stacy Steiner, the Convention at-
tracted 177 Jewish teenagers
from the 20 area chapters, making
it the largest Convention in the
Council's history.
Incorporated into each of the
various programs was the theme,
"The Meaning of Life."
Throughout the weekend the par-
ticipants were encouraged to ex-
plore the significance behind their
own lives and were given an op-
portunity to share their views
with others.
The excitement began on Friday
evening with Sabbath evening ser-
vices, opening remarks by the
Convention Coordinators,
"Icebrakers" to help the par-
ticipants to meet one another, and
a Slide Show, featuring key peo-
ple and moments of the previous
year. At the conclusion of the day
was the traditional "Life
Ceremony" at which graduating
seniors who have previously serv-
ed as Council officers are
presented with "Life Member-
ship" and given an opportunity to
recount their experiences in the
organization. This year's reci-
pients were Edward Capp and II-
yssa Kraus, the outgoing Council
Presidents, Kerith Stern, Jason
Goodman and Robin Michaelson.
The program resumed early on
Saturday morning with Shabbat
services, followed by an infor-
mative and emotionally charged
address by the keynote speaker,
Dr. Jan Lederman. In conjunction
with the BBYO's International
program thrust, "BBYO-Friends
For Life," Dr. Lederman spoke
about Teenage Suicide, a problem
which has escalated sharply in re-
cent years. He discussed the
causes of suicide and pointed out
some of the early warning signs
by which potential suicides could
be identified. He also informed the
audience of the proper steps to
take if they or someone they knew
was contemplating suicide and
elaborated upon successful peer
prevention techniques.
Following a lengthy question
and answer period the youth were
divided into 12 different discus-
sion groups, giving them an op-
portunity to discuss the issue fur-
ther and to share their own feel-
ings on the subject with peer
leaders and staff.
Later in the afternoon each
youth attended one of four
separate sessions which focused
on a more specific aspect of the
central theme. The topics and
presenters were: "Life Will
Gleam With Self Esteem" by
Selma Telles, "Lifelines: Chang-
ing Perspectives" by Lisa Ber-
man, "The Meaning of Life: A
Jewish Perspective" by Jerry
Kiewe, and "The Shining Life" by
Billy Rubin.
The program continued Satur-
day evening with the traditional
Havdallah service, marking the
conclusion of the Jewish Sabbath.
This was followed by the Council's
Annual Meeting, which began
with a formal Procession of the
current Chapter Presidents,
Council Chairpeople and Council
Officers and was highlighted by
the end-of-the-year States of the
outgoing Council Presidents, D-
yssa Kraus and Edward Capp.
The evening was capped off by a
dance which lasted until the early
hours of the morning.
Sunday morning began with the
election of Council Officers for the
upcoming year. New officers for
the AZA (boy's component) are
Darren Frost, President;
Lawrence Lambert, Programm-
ing Vice President; Scott Thaler
and Brad Berman, Membership
Vice Presidents; Robert Shapiro,
Secretary, and Edward Capp,
Parliamentarian. Officers for the
BBG (girl's component) are Stacy
Steiner, President; Lisa Stein-
man, Programming Vice Presi-
dent; Lauren Lorowitz and Nancy
Gulker, Membership Vice
Presidents; Beth Zelinka,
Secretary; and Ilyssa Kraus,
Chaplain.
For the grand finale, the Annual
Installation and Awards Banquet,
the youth were joined by
representatives of the B'nai B'rith
Men and B'nai B'rith Women.
Over 60 plaques and certificates
were awarded to various chapters
and individuals in recognition of
superior achievement in many
areas including programming,
leadership and community
service.
The Gold Coast Council consists
of 20 chapters throughout the
North Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach counties. Jewish teens ages
14-18 who may be interested in
joining the B nai B'rith Youth
Organisation should contact Jerry

Deerfield Beach For Yom Ha'atzmaut...
Century Village Celebrates Israel Independence Day
A Wed auditorium listened to Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson,
Federation's director of education, as he presented an update on
Israel and a projection for the future.
The Israel Task Force, sponsor of the event, is
comprised of all those organizations who par-
ticipated in the parade, which culminated in
the auditorium, kicking off the festivities.
Israel Independence Day was
recently celebrated at Century
Village by hundreds who par-
ticipated in the 38th birthday of
the State of Israel.
Sponsored by the Century
Village Israel Task Force, and
sponsoring chair Molly Fishman,
the celebration began with a
parade featuring 35 organizations
in addition to the Deerfield Beach
High School Band.
Proclamations were issued by
Mayor Jean Robb and Rabbi
Nathan Fish of B'nai Shalom,
made a prayer for Israel.
Highlighting the day was the
entertainment by the Barbershop-
pers, the Choraleers and the
Jewish Folk Chorus. Guest
speaker was Dr. Abraham J. Git-
telson, Federation's director of
education.
Irving R. Friedman, chairman
of the event, and Fran Massel,
cochairman, agreed that a grand
time was had by all.
Over 35 organizations marched in Century Villages' Israel In-
dependence Day celebration.
Jewish Coalition
Announces
New Program
At the last meeting of the Coral
Springs Jewish Coalition an in-
novation was introduced by Presi-
dent Stan Kane that really spark-
ed a great deal of interest by all
the members present.
In addition to presenting an an-
nual Chanukah Festival, the Coral
Springs Area Coalition of Jewish
Organizations will present to the
community a "Showcase" of all
the organizations under its
umbrella.
"The idea came about as a result
of ignorance of what many of the
organizations do. The great ma-
jority of people in the Jewish com-
munity recognize and are aware
of the names and existence of
almost all of the various Jewish
organizations in the Coalition.
But, many Jewish people really do
not know exactly what they do.
The non-Jewish community is ab-
solutely ignorant of these
organizations and their purpose in
life," Kane stated.
Therefore, a learning process
was needed for both Jew and non-
Jew concerning the names, pur-
poses and objectives of the Jewish
organizations in our community
and around the world.
The Coral Springs Area Coali-
tion of Jewish Organizations will
sponsor each year, for all its
member organizations, a com-
munity showcase of Jewish
Organizations that will be open to
the public in the Coral Springs
area.
All organizations of the Coali-
tion and their representatives who
are interested in publicizing their
organizations and getting a space
at the first open exhibit are re-
quested to attend the next
meeting on June 26 at 7:30 p.m. in
the West wing of the Coral Spr-
ings City Hall.
Coral Springs Jewish Coalition
is a grant recipient of the Federa-
tion/UJA campaign.

Congressman Smith's Daughter To
Participate In First World Youth Assembly
This summer, when Lauren
Smith of Bethesda takes her place
in Israel among the 100 American
teen-agers who have been selected
to be delegates at the First World
Youth Assembly, she will help
enhance American-Israeli teen-
age relations and help secure the
future of young Jewish
leadership.
The Assembly is sponsored by
the United Jewish Appeal's Na-
tional Young Leadership Cabinets
and The Israeli Forum and will be
based in N'ureem, a scenic youth
village in the Sharon Plain.
From July 11-21, the young
American Jews, who are entering
10th, 11th, and 12th grades, and
100 of their Israeli counterparts
will spend 10 days getting to know
one another; touring important
sites of Jewish interest; and atten-
ding workshops, briefings and
cultural activities. There will also
be plenty of time for informal and
intensive conversation and
socializing.
One of the goals of the
Assembly is for the youngsters to
make lasting friendships with
members of their own and other
delegations so that leadership ac-
tivities for the future of the
Jewish people will continue on
both sides of the Atlantic.
The American teen-agers were
chosen because they demonstrate
leadership potential and ex-
perience an understanding of the
need for the continuation of a
vibrant worldwide Jewish com-
munity, and a desire to help
establish this international
framework for Jewish youth.
Delegates also were chosen on the
basis of their organizational in-
volvement, leadership qualities,
and suitability for the highly selec-
tive program.
Smith also was selected for the
American Steering Committee,
which is composed of 16 high
school students from around the
country. The committee has
already met to discuss the topics
they hope to place on the First
World Youth Assembly agenda.
Among these are Orthodox versus
non-Orthodox views aliyah,
Holocaust survivors, comparative
governments, personal lives,
Zionism, and Jewish political in-
fluence in the United States.
According to Smith, the
American youngsters hope "to
get to know the Israelis, learn
how teens in Israel live, and
understand one another's fears,
aspirations, and goals."
"Then, we can also decide how
we can best benefit one another,"
Smith said.
Delegates will explore the
similarities and differences bet-
ween Jewish life in America and
in Israel. The American delega
tion will be offered a unique in
sight into Jewish roots and com
mitment, into what makes Iarae
central to the contemporary
Jewish experience. Israel
delegates will gain an understan
ding of the concerns of American
Jewry and learn of the rich com
plexity of Jewish life in the
Diaspora.
Dr. Marc Berenzweig of
Mamaroneck, New York, the UJA
Young Leadership Cabinet
Assembly coordinator, stressed
that "this will be no routine 'sum-
mer in Israel' experience. The
Assembly is dedicated to
establishing a truly open and
honest dialogue among the people
of very diverse backgrounds who
will make a difference to the
future of these two rapidly evolv-
ing Jewish communities."
Smith said that the best possible
outcome of the Assembly will be
"to accomplish a basic understan-
ding of one another and to in-
spire peace among all nations."
In addition to Smith, 12 teen-
agers have been selected: Ted
Einhorn, Steven Friedman, liana
Fuchs, Bonnie Gordon, Sharon
Gorenstein, Elisa Oler, Laurence
Plotkin, Daniel Reich, Johanna
Rodgers, Ira Saiger, Deborah
Topol, and Howard Weitzner.
Smith said that she has par-
ticipated in many Jewish activities
in Washington and in Florida
before moving here. She has been
a camp counselor for the past two
years at the JCC of South
Broward in Florida, a past vice
president of a B'nai B'rith Girls
(BBG) chapter, and currently is
active in BBG.
Her father, Congressman
Lawrence Smith (D-FL), is a
member of the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee's Europe and
Middle East Subcommittee and
frequently speaks on behalf of
federations around the country.
The family also has been active
in the Jewish Federation of South
Broward. Lauren's mother Sheila
said, "It is a family tradition to be
X
involved.V She is a member of the
Congressional Wives for Soviet
Jewry; her son also is involved in
B'nai B'rith Hillel activities.
"We are absolutely thrilled that
Lauren is attending the First
World Youth Assembly," her
mother said, adding that develop-
ment of younger Jewish leader-
ship will "fill a void."
It seems obvious to Lauren
Smith that much more than
cultural and political information
will pass between the American
and Israeli youngsters.
"There will be a common bond
because we all are Jewish," she
said "I'm a curious person who is
interested in meeting people and
hearing what they have to say. I
hope to make lots of new friends."

FEWER AMERICANS got married last year than at any time
in nearly a decade, and new government statistics show the
divorce rate was heading up after a brief decline. Americans were
still about twice as likely to get married as divorced last year, ac-

There were 10.2 marriages per 1,000 Americans in 1985, down 3
percent from 1984 the lowest^rate since 1977.
NEWS ARTICLES reporting on a government decision to halt
federal spot checks of sanitation condition's on U.S. cruise ships
has prompted Congressman Larry Smith (D-FL), to send a
strongly-worded letter to the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
In the letter to CDC Director Dr. James 0. Mason Smith re-
quested a "full explanation" of the decision and urged the direc-
tor to reconsider it.
After an emotional luncheon
celebrating the release of Soviet
dissident Anatoly "Natan"
Scharansky, Congressman Larry
Smith (D-Florida) promised to
"keep up the struggle" on behalf
of all the refuseniks who still re-
main in the Soviet Union. "To tru-
ly honor this courageous man,"
said Smith, "we must not forget
the thousands of others who have
yet to see the light of freedom."
"Today is a monumentous occa-
sion filled with joy and happiness
for all freedom loving people," the
Florida Congressman exclaimed
after meeting Scharansky at a
luncheon on Capitol Hill. "His
warm reception here indicates
that there is a genuine concern
about the fate of Soviet refuseniks
and prisoners of conscience. We in
Congress are committed to keep-
ing the pressure on the Soviet
Union to open their gates and let
the Soviet Jews go."
The luncheon, sponsored by the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee and the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee (of which Smith
is a member), followed a special
ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda
where Scharansky was welcomed
by congressional leaders. He was
the first private citizen honored
with a ceremony in the Rotunda.
Continued Smith, "Today
Scharansky said that 'English has
become the language of liberty
because the U.S. has made it so.'
Let us vow to keep that language
free of empty rhetoric and to
redouble our efforts on behalf of
those who remain behind the Iron
Curtain. Today we welcomed
Natan Scharansky to the United
States as a free man. Tomorrow
let's hope to welcome thousands
more."
"His release was won not only
by the efforts of the Congress and
others in government, but also by
the fight waged by Americans
Jews and non-Jews alike," con-
cluded Smith. "I commend both
the National Conference on Soviet
Jewry and the Union of Councils
on Soviet Jewry, and thank the
millions of Americans who wrote
letters, prayed, and fasted on his
behalf. Human rights and freedom
have meaning for all Americans."

scapes, fascinating historic
sites, and an unusually
friendly population. You
can't worry about the "Mid-
dle East" when you are
strolling along the Mediter-
ranean promenade in Tel
Aviv nor when you are sit-
ting on the balcony
overlooking Jerusalem's old
city at the King David
Hotel. The Middle East of
the headlines just disap-
pears obscured as it
should be by the Israel of
reality.
The best thing about
visiting Israel is that your
trip is enhanced by the
sense of connectedness that
you feel. Visiting most
foreign countries is a
{>assive experience. You
ook, admire, and take home
photographs that look like
postcards. Sure, it's very
nice to check out the ruins in
Greece or the cathedrals in
Italy. But these places have
very little to do with most of
us. Israel is different. See-
ing the ancient "City of
David" in Jerusalem is ex-
citing because our ancestors
lived there. Tel Aviv is
thrilling because the people
there look like and
sometimes are relatives.
You just do not leave a kib-
butz the way you do a Scot-
tish castle, remarking on
how "nice" it is. You leave
proud. Because that kibbutz
has something to do with
you. Everything in Israel
does.
Of course, visiting Israel
is a two-way street. It is
good for the tourist. And it
is good for Israel. Last year,
1.4 million tourists (430,000
from the United States)
came to Israel. While there,
they spent $1.3 billion
more foreign currency than
the country derived from all
its exports, Israeli officials
had hosed that 1386 would

Any drop in tourism could
seriously retard that
recovery.
Unfortunately, it is a drop
in tourism that seems to be
happening. This winter the
number of tourists visiting
Israel was down 41 percent.
If the summer figures are
anything like that, Israel's
economy could face some
serious new troubles.
But there isn't much that
Israel can do to attract
tourists who are afraid of
becoming the victims of a
terrorist attack. Israel
already runs the world's
most secure airline, El Al.
The country itself is about
as terrorist-proof as any na-
tion can be. The U.S. Con-
gress is now Considering

Volunteers For Israel Provides Speakers For Events
Israel needs your help to avert an economic crisis.
The current terrorist blackmail has affected Israel's economic
recovery. Please publicize in your sermons, or in any way you see
fit, the dire need for tourism and for people to go as volunteers to
work in the IDF.
A special program for your young congregants with children
has been instituted. Parents with teenagers now have the oppor-
tunity to participate. The children and parents are housed in Jaffa
and are taken daily to their work stations, either in an army camp
or a hospital facility. All meals and lodging are provided at no cost
to the volunteers.
The Florida office of the Volunteers for Israel has a cadre of un-
paid speakers, who have already served. They appear at
synagogues and organizations and relate their personal ex-
periences and answer questions about the program, which
operates 12 months a year. A VHS cassette is available. It por-
trays the life of a volunteer in the army camp.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated in the Mitzvah of
sending our brethren to help the State of Israel.

dinator, at 6501 W. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL SSS1S,

A SrtArial Dav On Caoitol Hill
The first meeting of the Board
of Directors of the Women's Divi-
sion for 1986/87 was held on May
12. President Esther Lerner was
pleased to introduce Debra
Roshfeld, the newly appointed
Director of Women's Division.
Debbi comes to us with a BA
degree in Psychology from
Brandeis University where she
graduated Magna Cum Laude and
holds a Phi Beta Kappa key. She
continued her education with a
Graduate Fellowship at the
University of California in San
Francisco. Before coming to work
in our Federation office a year
ago, Debbi held the position of
Assistant Regional Director of
B'nai B'rith Youth Organization
of South Florida.
Alvera Gold reported on the

Meeting which laid the ground-
work for the upcoming 86/87
Network, under the leadership of
Selma Telles, proved to be both
exciting and informative. The
topic of the evening was
"Black/ Jewish Relationships."
This provocative subject matter
was explored by a well informed
panel consisting of John Ruffin of
the Urban League and Daisy
Taylor, a black woman formerly
on the staff of Congressman Clay
Shaw, representing the Black
community. Alice Solomon of the
National Conference for Chris-
tians and Jews and Abe Gittelson
our Scholar-in-Residence
represented the Jewish communi-
ty. Each of the panelists gave a
five minute presentation and then
opened a dialogue. One subject ad-
dressed was the apparent dissolu-
tion of the Jewish/Black partner-
amp so prevalent in the 60s. It was
suggested that although both
communities may have similar

fund-raising drive. There she
presented this year's theme of
"Kol Iahah," Women's Voice,
which we have adopted for this
column. A second meaning of the
Hebrew phrase "Kol Iahah" is
"All Women." The campaign
committee is planning to reach all
women with three major fund-
raising events. The Ruby 10 func-
tion will be in late December or
early January: the "Pride" of
Women's Division ($2,500-$9,999)
will be in January, honoring both
groups of Lions; and the Kol Iahah
event which will be held in late
January or early in February. The
minimum gift of $366 is a Dollar a
Day for UJA. The 1985/86
Women's campaign, which is now
drawing to a close, has raised
more than $1,100,000 plus which
represents 18.4 percent of our
Federation's total fund-raising
efforts.
The balance of the meeting was
devoted to a board orientation
conducted by Charlotte Padek.
Stressing that a board can be no
better than its members.
Charlotte brought new insights in-
to the duties and obligations of
each director. There was a con-
certed effort to create an at-
mosphere of team spirit and com-

concerned by instituting a Skills

enemies they each have priorities,
at this time. Ms. Taylor com-
mented that Blacks cannot hide in
a crowd and therefore face unique
problems in being accepted by
others. Nevertheless the general
conclusion was that the past part-
nership between the Black and
Jewish communities can be
reinstituted and an evening such
as this go a long way toward fur-
thering that goal. All interested
women are invited to come to the
meetings and join the discussions
of the P.M. Network.
The Coral Spring Connection
met at the home of Joy and Ron-
nie Kertes on the evening of May
20. Our newly appointed Ex-
ecutive Director Kenneth B. Bier-
man addressed this group. They
heard an informative, first hand,
approach to the role of Federation
in Greater Fort Lauderdale. The
question and answers were unique
to the area of Coral Springs and to
the young families who live there.
This is a new and growing com-
munity. They will add many
vibrant people and wonderful
ideas to the area in the coming
years.
The entire Women's Division
congratulates Alvera Gold who
was just electd to the National
Women's Division Board of the
United Jewish Appeal. Alvera is
the first representative from Fort
Lauderdale and we know she will
continue to make us proud of her.

Deborah Fuller Hahn
One hundred and four women
met very early in the morning of
May 15 at La Guardia Airport in
New York for a one-day mini-
mission in Washington, on behalf
of the Women's Division of
UJA/Federation of New York. As
a founder of this group I was
priviledged to be invited to join
the activities. The program was
varied and interesting. We gained
several new insights into such
diverse areas as the arms deal
with Saudi Arabia, the Soviet
refusenik situation, Gramm-
Rudman and Terrorism.
The first speaker to address the
group was Tom Dine, Executive
Director of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee. He in-
formed us that 75 percent of Con-
gress voted against the sale of
arms to Saudi Arabia. The United
States had been assured that the
Saudis would participate in the
peace process, since they have
failed to do so, Congress is voicing
its disagreement with President
Reagan by vetoing the deal. He
noted that AD?AC is participating
in the movement to make it an
American crime to kill Americans
abroad. At present it is a crime of
the host country and subject to
that country's laws. Mr. Dine also
reiterated the fact that the Con-
gress of the United States takes
note of all letters, telegrams and
individual gifts concerned with
Israel and the Jewish community.
Barbara Mikulski, (D.Md) and
five other members of the House
of Representatives visited the
Soviet Union under the auspices
of the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry. Her report was
electrifying. The audience was
unaware that on the very day
Anatoly Scharansky was trium-
phantly welcomed out of the
Soviet Union, beatings and ar-
rests of Jews multiplied. Con-
gresswoman Mikulski told us how
the American Embassy opened its
doors on Passover to invite 60
refusenik families, honoring all
strict dietary observances. Am-
bassador Hartman said, "Come to
my house because you can't do it
anywhere else .. Let's enjoy
Passover dinner together.
Hopefully, here at the American
Embassy you have some sense of
safety to continue a time honored
tradition." He concluded with the
toast, "Next Year in Jerusalem!"
The congreaswornan continued
with the assessment that the Gor-
bachev government is "the same
Gulag crowd that is being called in
Congress "Gucci Communism."
They dress up in fancy suits and
listen to Jazz, but behind that new
western look there is the same old
Stalin Gulag mentality."
In speaking with communist
government officials about allow-
ing Soviet Jews to emigrate, they
ran into a stone wall. As the only
woman in the group, she concen-
trated more on the families of the
refuseniks. She explained that in
addition to the direct imprison-
ment, there is psychological tor-
ture and harassment to the wives
and children of these Jewish
families. One woman told that the
KGB would show up at a home
very early in the morning. These
men would gather the family in
one room and search the home for
16 hours. They would go through
every paper in the family library,
throwing the books on the floor
and making ugly anti-Semitic
jokes. Then they raised the sub-
ject of Israel and made anti-
Zionist jokes. They kept mis ver-
bal harassment up and moved the
entire family into the bedroom
where they went through the
clothes, adding obscenities.
This practice is now common
procedure against refusenik
families and has added a
psychological attack that is
directed at the children. As a
result of being denied entrance to
certain schools and institutes,
these children will not be able to
achieve the same academic or in-
tellectual training that their
parents did. The Soviet Union is
practicing "Ethnocide," a form of
genocide that will kill the culture
of the Jewish people of that coun-
try. Ms. Mikulski encouraged all
to visit the refuseniks of the
Soviet Union and give them a
sense of solidarity with the Jewish
people.
Senator Joseph Biden of
Delaware directed his briefing
toward the Gramm-Rudman Act.
He charged the government
would not approve any budget
cuts without the Gramm-Rudman
act. "If Congress does not pass its
own deficit-reduction package by
March 1, we will see the first
'automatic' cuts take place. The
real world is that we cannot meet
the social agenda of this country
unless we cut defense spending
and raise revenues. There is an
unfair burden placed on all of you,
and the thousands of you across
the nation. It's unfair that you are
the same people we go to for
everything. We go to you to build
hospitals, we go to you to fund
campaigns, we go to you, the
Jewish community, to build
Catholic Universities. We go to
you for everything because the
American Jewish community is
the single most generous com-
munity in the country. It is not the
some of you who are wealthy and
prominent. Tzedakah runs deep in
the Jewish culture. If every com-
munity were able to think in the
terms of the American Jewish
community, we would be so much
better off." Senator Biden went
on to tell us that Gramm-Rudman
will expire in four years during
which time public consensus is go-
ing to mount to demand that

obligations are met. He ended his
talk with the words, "Hang on, we
need you... we need you badly to
(unfairly) fill in the gap."
In a briefing on terrorism, we
saw posters that were brought
home by Jerry Levin, recently
held captive by the Shiite
Moslems. One depicted a wounded
Shiite child, blood forming the
stripes of the U.S. flag with a field
of Jewish stars. The inscription
read, "The curse of Allah is upon
you Americans." There is no
doubt that there is a calculated
campaign to drive the United
States out of the Middle East, to
destroy Israel and to change the
strategic balance in the region.
Senator Alphonse D'Amato (R.
NY) who is chairman of the
Helsinki Commission on Human
Rights declared, "I have always
noted, with a great deal of in-
terest, that the best work is
always done by the women's divi-
sions ... in fact the men are
usually trailing the women. So, I'd
rather have your strong support
than the men's."

'86 Federation/United Jewish Appeal
Report On UJA National Allocation Mission ...
Eyewitness Account On Our Brethren In Israel
Editor's Note: The following
article was written 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
representing 16 major American
Federations who participated in
the recent UJA National Alloca-
tions Mission to Romania and
Israel.
Part II How UJA Dollars
Aid The State of Israel
After our visit to Romania, we
proceeded to Israel, where we saw
how the monies raised by the
Federation/United Jewish Appeal
campaign were put to appropriate
use to aid in the life-saving, life-
giving work for our brethren in
Israel. The funds, which are used
sparingly and not in any chaotic
fashion, are used to build the in-
frastructure of the State of Israel
to cope with the immigration into
the country, to cope with (lie
needs of the disadvantaged and to
provide for the needs of the
elderly.
Israel is as different from
Romania as this earth may be dif-
ferent from Mars because the
community is alive people are
alive and bustling.
One of the first places we visited
was the absorption center in Kfar
Saba, a struggling ghetto which
our Fort Lauderdale community,
through the Project Renewal cam-
paign, is trying to make into a
thriving neighborhood. We will all
remember the experience and ela-
tion on the part of our community
when Operation Moses was under-
way from Ethiopia. There is more
to absorption of an immigrant
from Ethiopia than from other
countries, because these people
are not only undernourished or
malnourished physically, but both
economically and socially.
Through the remarkable efforts
of the absorption center and
within Kfar Saba, these Jewish
brethren are not only educated by
the Ulpan, but are taught trades
and given the opportunity to
become a vital part of Israel's
society.
Everyone takes credit for Youth
Aliyah, but the principal deliverer
of the service is the offices of the
Jewish Agency, the major
beneficiary of the United Jewish
Appeal. Since the proclamation of
Israel's statehood, the Jewish
Agency assisted in the absorption
of more than 1,700,000 im-
migrants. Over 500 agricultural
settlements were established with
some 160.000 settlers. Some
350,000 housing solutions were
provided. More than 150,000
children and youth were able to
enter the mainstream of Israel
society through the programs of
Youth Aliyah. More than 15,000
Ethiopians have made Israel their
home, and nothing was more poig-
nant than when a little Ethiopian
girl told the Absorption Center
director, "Everything here is fine,
but when am I going to become
white?" and so the Jewish Agency
brings about a transition of time,
a span of almost 12 centuries that
separate these people from the life
in Israel and a remarkable job it
is.
Even as in Romania, another
major beneficiary of the UJA, the
Joint Distribution Committee,
caters to the needs of Israel's
elderly. As was the program in
Pardss Hanna, a geriatric center
composed of 1,000 beds, organiz-
ed luce the old Stetels in Eastern
Europe where everybody mixes in
small groups completely
integrated.
Our Mission proved to be an ex-
perience of a lifetime as we visited
with the flourishing settlements
sculptured from the desert, and
learned of the technology of strip
irrigation, which provides the
precise amount of water through
computers. So successful is this
experiment that representatives
from the State of Oklahoma have
come to the country to learn the
procedure. Even the State of
Texas is expected to employ this
form of irrigation.
Finally, I realized after this ex-
citing and informative Mission
that what we are doing in the
United States through the work of
the Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal is important, but however
much we're doing, we're not do-
ing enough. Indeed we must con-
tinue to support and keep Israel
strong, but we must also continue
to support the local needs of our
agencies and beneficiaries here in
our own community, for we are all
"One People, One Destiny."

Tamarac Division Announces Record $204,567
For '86 Federation/UJA Campaign
Deeply concerned with the
growing needs facing their
brethren here in Greater Fort
Lauderdale, in Israel and in more
than 33 lands overseas, the men
and women in the Tamarac Divi-
sion announced a record $204,567
for the '86 Federation/UJA cam-
paign. This is an increase of more
than 32 percent over last year's
gifts.
According to David Krantz,

Federation's Kosher Nutrition Program
A Special Time In The Lives Of The Elderly
kosher
Nutrition
Are you over 60?
Do you find it difficult to shop
and cook nutritionally sound
meals?
Is comraderie of friends in
your age group lacking?
Would you enjoy par-
ticipating in Shabbat and holiday
observances?
If the answer is yes to the above
questions, we have an offer you
can't refuse, states Irving
Libowsky, chairman of the Jewish
Federation's Kosher Nutrition
Programs Committee. We have
two sites centrally located, one at
the Jewish Community Center,
6501 W. Sunrise Blvd., and the
other in the Lauderhill Mall on
State Road 7. The sites operate
Monday through Friday, with
transportation provided. For
entertainment there is games,
discussion groups, blood pressure
readings, Shabbat and holiday
observances with Rabbis and Can-
tors, birthday and anniversary
parties, lively entertainment with
a taste of Yiddishkeit and inter-
generational programming.
Be a good friend and share this
information with your friends and
neighbors. The Jewish Federation
cares about our isolated elderly,
but we need the public s
assistance in reaching those who
would benefit from our fine pro-
grams. If you can spare 10
minutes on your organizations, or
condominiums fall agenda, we
would be pleased to make a
presentation. For information on

family, please call Sandy
Friedland, Director of Elderly
Services, 797-0831. |

bags are routinely checked
in theaters and in super-1
markets. This may make
some people feel insecure. Itf
should have just the op-
posite effect In Israel, the
entire instrumentality of the
state works full time to pre-
vent attacks on the entire
population. This is true,
nowhere else.
In short, there is no
reason to avoid traveling to
Israel out of fear. There is,
of course, a small element of
risk in traveling anywhere.
Take Manhattan, for in-,
stance, or Miami. The only
safe place, really, is at
home. But, then again, you
may live near the San An-
dreas fault or within a few
miles of a nuclear reactor.
Risk is simply a part of life.
Fortunately, in Israel, the
risk is very small indeed. As
for the rewards, they are ob-
vious. You will be doing
Israel a favor if you go there,
this year. But it is you who
will be the real beneficiary. |

THE STATE'S restaurant industry, faced with too many new
eateries and high insurance costs, suffered a bleak 1985 as
failures soared 160 percent while the number of new restaurants
more than doubled. In 1985, 2,209 new restaurants opened in
Florida while another 1,616 went out of business, according to the
state's Department of Business Regulation. The previous year,
1,074 new outlets opened while 622 closed their doors.
A PERSON who suffers even one case of blistering sunburn in
adolescence may double the risk of developing a serious skin
cancer later in life, a Harvard researcher reported. In one form of
skin cancer, melanoma, which affects the pigment-producing skin
cells, sunlight may nudge those cells or moles toward cancer. The
disease is fatal in about one in four cases.
LAWYERS DEBATED at a state Supreme Court hearing
whether proposed limits on their fees would help clients get a big-
ger share of the judgments or make it harder for people to file

posed limiting lawyers' fees in personal injury or wrongful-death
cases.

Enriching The Lives Of The Frail Elderly ...
Jewish Federation 'Gathering Place'
The Gathering Place is the
center of activity for up to 25 frail
elderly participants each week-
day. An HRS Licensed Day Care
Center, funded totally by Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, The Gathering Place
makes its home in Rooms 101 and
102, Building B at the Jewish
Community Center, 6601 W.
Sunrise Blvd., Plantation.
Through the diligent work and
dedication of Federation commit-
tee chairman Irving Libowsky,
The Gathering Place program
serves the purpose of providing
North Broward County elderly a
place to enjoy a day-to-day
lifestyle that makes them a viable
part of our community.
The programming at The
Gathering Place is carefully plan-
ned to enrich the lives of its par-
ticipants as well as offering
respite to the caregivers of the
participants. Activities range
from Adult Basic Education and
Exercise to Yiddish and Ceramics.
Tables games are a means to
stimulate socialization and
memory as well. These are but a
sample of the offerings.
The center enjoys an ongoing in-
tergenerational program with the
Hebrew Day School. All holidays
are celebrated with both genera-
tions to the delight of all!
Field trips are planned to en-
courage the feeling that our
seniors are a valued part of our
community. Whether it is the joy
of visiting Beth Israel at Succoth
or a shopping adventure in an air
conditioned Mall, the trips relieve
the isolation that is so painful for

All About
Shavuot
Shavuot comes to us again
With aims that are three-fold:
To mark the Torah given us,
Wheat harvesting of old,
Ripening of first fruit in
The fertile Holy Land:
Longstanding aims that through
the years
Have made Shavuot grand ...
Akdamut, hymn of praise to G-d,
In Temples will be chanted
As they are decked in greenery
With flowers freshly planted ...
Because the Torah was received
On Shavuot years ago,
Our youngsters from religious
schools
Will take part in the show ...
And Yizkor and the Book of Ruth
Are scheduled to be read
On the second "blintxes day"
Awaiting us ahead.

SEASONAL VOLUNTEERS
In keeping with its policy of
reviewing the records of the
Center's volunteers approximate-
ly every three months, JCC nam-
ed three Center members: Sophie
Safran, Pat Friedman and
Elizabeth Hodkin its Vobtntmrt of
the Month for February. All active
participating members of JCC's
Senior Adult program, the three
honorees are recognized for their
many hours of service.
SOPHIE SAFRAN
A familiar figure on campus,
Sophie Safran has devoted a good
deal of time to several different
Center activities. To name one
she, herself, traveled all around
11 the town visiting stores in many
malls to personally ask for and col-
lect 85 different luncheon door
prizes for the "Total Look for the
Mature Woman" all day seminar
held in March. She also served as
a good looking subject for "pain-
ting and powdering" in the make-
up demonstration session and she
looked ravishing on the runway
modeling the latest fashions.
A DRIVER OF NOTE
In another capacity, one could
easily say that Sophie Safran is a
driving force in Senior Activities!
A member of the Center three
years, Safran has been teaching
an accredited AARP Driving
Education Refresher course on
campus for the past two years. A
natural for the job, she says many
"seniors" over 55 want to take
the course because they'll qualify
for a reduction in insurance rates
if they pass it and receive a cer-
tificate. But, she reports, once in-
volved, they all seem to enjoy her
sense of humor and her ability to
rap with her students, in addition
to gaining valuable pointers about
defensive driving which you don't
' find in any book. Because of word
of mouth, Safran's two session
classes which include tapes, slides
and lectures are limited to a
registration of 25. Offered several
times a year, they are usually
booked two months in advance.
QUALIFIED
Why is Safran so qualified?
Easy She was in the business
operating a driving school in
Brooklyn with her late husband
for 17 years. Her husband was
known in the field and the only
safety educator not part of the
school system who was invited by,
the school board to give seminars.
They had also began to write a
book on the subject together.
In Florida for the past 11 years,
Safran joined the JCC three years
ago when she moved to this area.
She also lends her voice to the 60
member JCC Jewish Festival
Chorale and is an active member
of the Center's membership
committee.
Safran is a graduate of N.Y.U.
with a BCS in accounting, using
her skills for many years as a full
charge book-keeper. She is very
croud of her daughter and son-in-
law in Nashville and her two
granddaughters.
(Other Volunteer honorees will
be profiled in future issues.)
"ISRAEL 38" WAS
GREAT...
... said over 5000 celebrants
who came to the JCC campus Sun-
day, May 18 to honor the 38th an-
niversary of the establishment of
the State of Israel. An Israeli flag
display, including one from Kfar
Saba, Federation's sister city, s
carnival, a festival of musk, song
and dance, a shopping spree, an
educational experience, a display
and contest of Israeli photos, an
Israeli movie theater, Maccabeah
athletic competitions for young
and older, and Israeli/American al
fresco dining opportunities were
all there and more!
CANTORS
ARE ENTERTAINING
Before the big event, JCC
began its birthday celebration
with song provided by four Can-
tors who temporarily left the
dignity of the bimah the evening
of May 8 to entertain an audience
of more than 200 with lively rendi-
tions of contemporary and old
fashioned Israeli and Yiddish
standards. Cantors Richard
Brown, Bella Milim and Maurice
Neu were joined by retired Cantor
Arthur Geller and sang to the ac-
companyment of Mr. Geller's
daughter Hollie Berger, JCC's
sought-after music specialist. The
appreciative audience sang and
clapped along with great
enthusiasm.
More song was provided under
the direction of Berger by the 60
member JCC Jewish Festival
Chorale who offered a beautiful,
tuneful History of Israel in Song
twice, accompanied by slides and
the narration written by Laura
Hochman, JCC Director of Adult
Services and David Surowitz, JCC
Assistant Executive Director. The
Tuesday evening and Thursday
afternoon concerts took place just
a few days before the Israel In-
dependence Day celebration.
TWO NEW FEATURES
New and different this year on
Israel Independence Day was an
inspiring display in the Ackerberg
Sculpture Garden of more than 60
colorful flags and banners im-
ported from as many cities and
municipalities in Israel. Harold
Goldstein, an "Israeli 38" commit-
tee member, wrote them all last
winter, acquiring the names and
addresses through Israel's
governmental agencies, never ex-
pecting such a huge response.
Each one of the flags is unique in
its design, logo and color scheme.
JCC Committee believes this is a
first time such delivery was made
to the U.S.A.!
PICTURES PERFECT
Also new in '86 was a photo con-
test and display, Subject: Scenes
actually taken in Israel. Ribbons
were awarded to the winners with
the first prize going to Dr. Arthur
Segaul of Plantation for his strik-
ing photograph of the play of
lights upon the geometric planes
inside the lobby of Technion's
Rappaport building. A second
place ribbon was awarded to Bur-
ton Hesselson of Tamarac for a
heart-tugging photo of a child in a
wheelchair praying at the Wall. A
third place ribbon went to Linda
Streitfeld, Plantation for her "pic-
ture in pastels" of an old man
sweeping the street in the old city
of Jerusalem. Another third place
winner was given to Dr. Nat
Levine of Plantation for his
unusual softly shaded photograph
of several silhouetted figures in
front of the Wall.
Among other exhibitors were
Joseph Godin, a student at So.
Plantation High School who show-
ed rugged Israeli land and
seascapes, M.A. Bard who ex-
hibited stunning black and whites,
H. Dunayer whose photos were
reminiscent of the pointilism
techniques popular with the

French impressionists and Larry
Levine "Israel 38" chairman who
showed scenic compositions taken
all around the city of Jerusalem.
Levine, who organized and
chaired the photo contest, says
that visitors' response to the ex-
hibition was so positive that the
Center plans to house a perma-
nent collection of Israeli photos
beginning with several of the pre-
sent entries offered to the Center.
THE ARGENTINIAN WAY
CONCLUDES THE DAY
Ending the day of Israel 38
celebration, with its activities and
happenings for every member of
the family, was "Shajar," the six
member group of vocalists and in-
strumentalists who originated
from Argentina. Their audience
filled the show tent and then
some. Extra chairs and the green
grass accommodated the
overflow, many of whom got up to
dance to the exhiliarating Israeli
music forming the typical
circles and adding rhythm, beat
and exhultation!
The JCC is a major beneficiary
agency of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, receiv-
ing funds from the annual United
Jewish Appeal campaign.

Special entertainment was in store for the gathered
throng when Rabbi Kurt Stone from Temple Beth

Among the key entertainers were Shajar, the Argentine combo who delighted young and old alike.

CAN WE in the West help Yuli
Edelshtein? Can we help
Nadezhda Fradkova, Vladimir
Slepak and all the other Soviet
Jews imprisoned in the Gulag, or
buried alive in a land they want to
leave? Do we have the right?
The International Covenant on
Civil and Political Rights assures
anyone the right to leave any
country; the U.S.S.R. signed it in
1973. The Helsinki accord
obligates the signatory powers to
provide exit visas for those seek-
ing reunion with their families;
the Soviets ratified it in 1975. So
we have the right.
Do we have the means? History
tells us the Soviets respond
neither to threats nor out of moral
or humanitarian considerations;
they respond when it is in their
own interest to do so. Our job is to
persuade them that there can be
no agreements or concessions in
areas of their interest no arms-
control treaty, no expanded trade
under most-favored-nation status,
no computer technology until
there is a change in the Soviet
policy on human rights and
emigration. So we have the
means.
Which brings us to the final
question: Do we have the will?
