Through the Words Of Emma Lazarus ...
Hundredth Anniversary Lady Liberty Fourteen Prominent
Editor'8 Note: The following is from South Florida resident
Naomi Needier by the occasion of the Centennial Anniversary, Ju-
ly i, 1986.
Let me introduce myself,
I'm the lady you call the Statue of Liberty.
My address, if you want to get in touch with me
is Bedloe's Island, New York, New York.
My life It's a long story,
I was originally fashioned
as a frontespiece for the new world,
a gift from France to America
Created from the heart and hand
of the great French sculptor, Bartholdi.
I arrived in state in 1886,
but my life really began in 1903
when I sensed my great mission
inscribed at my very feet.
My father as I told you was French,
my wonderful mother Emma Lazarus was an American Jewess.
Don't worry, I have no flak with dual loyalty
I consider myself a citizen of the world,
rightfully named "Mother of Exiles."
From these distant shores I stand
aghast, worried, ashamed, troubled
as I view the world Europe Asia Africa America.
I see kingdoms rise and fall, Spain Portugal
bloody dictators thrive and die Germany Italy
leaving mordant remains.
Genocide, Holocaust, refugees bewildered
landless, afloat without an anchor,
endless revolutions searching wanting needing
a world in turmoil in torment
seeking justice identity power love,
all this by way of a strange medium
the nuclear sword.
At my age, you know I will be celebrating my centennial
on July 1986 I shall be a hundred years old,
the Biblical age of wisdom
so I count my blessings.
I give thanks to the thousands who hearken to my shores
Oh, those remarkable downtrodden penniless immigrants
who come to this vibrant democracy,
break the chains of their poverty
flourish and enrich this land
bring fame to its name.
You can see why I'm never really lonely,
such glorious memories!
What's more I have a soul
a Yiddisher Neshoma
inherited from my beloved mother Emma Lazarus,
together we share it in a sweet embrace.
In fact her thoughts are etched into my very being
in a timeless perfect symbiosis.
And what vibrant compassionate thoughts!!!

National Young Leadership Mission To Israel
A Trip To Israel An Unforgettable Experience
Editor's Note: The following is a
poignant report by David and
Carrie Schulman who recently
joined with other community
leaders on the Young Leadership
Mission. David is the new presi-
dent of the Samuel and Helene
On May 11 we were privileged
to join a National Young Leader-
ship Mission to Israel. 54 Jewish
couples and singles from ages
25-40, from such diverse locations
as Hawaii, Oakland, San Antonio,
St. Louis, and even Miami,
gathered together in an effort to
better understand the people and
problems of the land of Israel.
Although we came from such
diverse backgrounds; among us
were doctors, attorneys, business
people, a microbiologist, and a
waitress, we were drawn together
by the experiences we shared.
The date of our mission was ex-
tremely significant, Our first
evening in Israel marked the
beginning of Yom Hazikaran,
Israel's Memorial Day. Gathering
at the Western Wall for the Kindl-
ing of the Flame in memory of the
fallen soldiers is a perfect way to
start to feel a part of the people of
Israel. In comparing Israel's
Memorial Day to the American
Memorial Day, it is critical to
realize that every person living in
Israel has been touched by the
tragedy of War. Each individual
has lost a friend of relative. At 11
a.m., a siren reverberates
throughout the country, sounding
stragely like a Shofar. Every man,
woman, and child stops whatever
they are doing, either with head
bowed or at attention in a moment
of silence. It staggers the im-
agination at the thought of 4
million people, an entire nation,
united in reflection.
As sundown approaches,
Memorial Day is followed by Yom
Haatzmout, Israeli Independence
Day. What a change in emotion,
from mourning to celebration. It
is a combination of the American
Fourth of July and New Year's
Eve rolled up into one. The people
danced in the street in joyous
celebration of their 38th year as a
Jewish state. We were welcomed
into people's homes as guests to
celebrate with them.
The sights on our trip varied
from day to day, but the feeling
that this was an incredible place
never changed. It's impossible to
travel throughout the land of
Israel without re-evaluating one's
sense of history and heritage. One
of the highlights of our trip was a
visit to an Ethopian Absorption
Center. We walked into a nursery
school as the children were
preparing for lunch. As they said
the Hamatzi and then sang
Hebrew songs for us, we were
overcome with emotion and belief
that we Jews are truly one people.
Wherever we went on our Mis-
sion, the Israelis consistently ask-
ed us one question, "Where are
the Americans?" We had no easy
answer. After spending two
weeks in Israel, we can
wholeheartedly say that if you
went to Israel, you'd know there
was nothing to fear. At midnight,
we would stroll the streets of
Jerusalem. The thought of walk-
ing in downtown Ft. Lauderdale
or Miami at that hour would never
cross our minds. We were on
every border of the country. We
slept at Kibbutz Giladi, and in the
evening, could see the spotlights
above us shining down into
Lebanon, never giving second
thoughts to our security.
We were embarrassed by the
adjulation fostered on us by the
Israeli people in gratitude for
simply being there. After admit-
ting to some people that this was
our first trip to Israel, we were
asked "What took you so long?"
Once again, we did not have an
adequate response. It's in-
teresting to note that our grand-
parents visited Israel for the first
The Schulmans sense their
history and heritage as they
walk the land at a Cardo in Old
time in their 70's, our parents in
their 50's, and we made the trip in
our 30's. We now have an over-
whelming desire to make sure
that our children join us on a
Family Mission to Israel before
their Bat and Bar Mitzvah.
In closing, we would like to. urge
anyone who is considering a trip
to Israel, not to hesitate.
PLEASE GO!! Before our trip, we
received a tremendous amount of
pressure from both friends and
relatives to cancel. What a
mistake we would have made. The
Building Tradition
Charitable giving can take
many forms and offer significant
tax advantages to potential
donors. The Jewish Federation of
Greater Ft. Lauderdale establish-
ed the Foundation of Jewish
Philanthropies in 1978 providing
contributors with a vehicle for
preserving the future of the
Jewish community while at the
same time enabling them to
receive a wide range of tax
benefits today.
In this interview Jacob Brodzki,
Foundation chairman discusses
how a well conceived program of
philanthropic giving makes good
business sense.
Q: Why have a Foundation at
A: We have a diverse city with a
set of very unique problems. The
needs of our elderly and our young
are of critical concern to the
Jewish community. Education is
an area where we have committed
substantial resources in order to
provide our youth with the type of
Jewish education which will orient
them to their history and tradi-
tions. Of equal concern is the need
to address the major health care
problems of our elderly
To meet these and other com-
munity needs, an organized en-
dowment program was establish-
ed. Since its inception, the Foun-
dation of Jewish Philanthropies of
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Ft. Lauderdale has built an asset
base of $2.5 million.
A major objective of the Foun-
dation is to create the resources
which will allow us to meet the
growing needs of the Jewish com-
munity at home and abroad. Addi-
tionally, we must be prepared to
meet the emergencies which con-
front our community from time to
time. These challenges can be met
by the creation of a substantial en-
dowment fund which provides a
second source of revenue to sup-
plement the annual
Federatioin/UJA Campaign.
Q: Is there a difference in the
nature of assets given to the
Campaign as opposed to the
A: No major difference. All of
our Fund donors support the an-
nual Campaign, mostly from in-
come generated by philanthropic
funds created with the Founda-
tion. Contributions to the Founda-
tion come in the form of assets
like real estate, stocks, bonds, in-
surance, even cash ... in the case
of an unexpected windfall.
Q: Does that mean substantial
tax savings?
A: Quite often, yes. Take a re-
cent case, call him Dr. Green, a
taxpayer in the 50 percent
Ten years ago, Dr. Green
bought 20 acres of
underdeveloped land for $1,000
per acre. Recently he found the
value had increased to $20,000 per
acre and wished to sell. His at-
torney suggested that he consider
an additional investment by
creating a Green Philanthropic
Fund as part of the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies.
When he sold the land, he
received a total of approximately
$340,000 and the Federation
received a total of $60,000.
First, he got a charitable deduc-
tion of $30,000 from his income
tax. And second, he paid no
capital gains tax on the funds
given to the Federation, because
it is a public charity.
Q: Are there other benefits?
A: Yes. You do not have to be
wealthy to benefit. In addition,
the Foundation allows the donor
to offer recommendations to our
Board of Trustees as to the use of
the fund or its earnings to
organizations whose purposes are
consistent with the Federation's
Q: What is?
A: The reward of giving a gift
that will mean so much to the com-
munity, that will benefit people in
need, In short, the benefit of giv-
ing a gift that will endure the teat
of time.
A beautiful moment when Ethiopian children join arm in arm to
serenade the group with Hebrew songs at the Kfar Saba Absorp-
tion Center.
country of Israel and the Israeli
people are suffering because the
American people are laboring
under gross misconceptions.

part of the solution.

Page 4 The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale/Friday, July 4, 1986
The views eiprnwd by columnists, reprinted editorial*, and copy do not neceuari-
ly reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Thatcher's Visit
Margaret Thatcher's visit to Israel the first ever by a British
Prime Minister produced a howl of outrage from the
government-controlled Saudi press. The newspaper Ukaz (May
26) strongly attacked her for setting foot in the "Zionist entity."
It reminded her that "Peres and Begin were the ones who blew up
the King David Hotel when it was the headquarters of the British
Mandate authorities." (Peres?) It argued that instead of greeting
Israeli leaders she should be "seeking the apprehension of all
these people ... as political leaders of an entity historically and
falsely known to have been erected despite the British Mandate
The Ukaz editorial is another demonstration that Saudi Arabia
remains as ever unreconciled to Israel's existence. That
"Zionist entity" garbage should have been thrown out years ago,
if only out of consideration for the way that type of rhetoric plays
abroad. But the Saudis can't drop it political considerations
aside because the quaint little phrase expresses the way they
feel. There is no Israel. Just an entity. As far as they are concern-
ed, Jews can create entities but not states.
There is one piece of truth in the editorial. It argues that Israel
the entity was "erected despite the British Mandate
authorities." That is correct. The British did everything they
could to thwart the establishment of the Jewish state. In their in-
famous White Paper of 1939, they banned Jewish immigration to
Palestine at the very moment when European Jews most needed
a refuge. Throughout the 1940's as Jews were killed by the
millions Britain kept the gates of Palestine barred tight, in ef-
fect signing the death sentences of those who might have escaped
if there was a place to go.
The Saudi assertion that the Jews defied the British in creating
Israel contradicts the more traditional and false Arab view
that Israel was created by British and other colonialists as a gift
for the Jews. On the very day that Ukaz was telling Thatcher that
the Jews defied Britain in creating their state, Damascus Radio
was putting out the other line. It reminded Thatcher that "during
its occupation of Palestine from 1917 to 1948" Britain "brought
in Zionist terrorists, facilitated their emigration to Palestine, and
enabled them to take up arms against the Arabs ... in order to
wrest Palestine from its rightful owners." It warned that "the
Palestinian people will continue to hold Britain greatly responsi-
ble for the disasters that befell them." They had hoped that Bri-
tain would "atone for its crime" by supporting a Palestinian
state, "not side with the usurpers to prevent the restoration of
this homeland."
In fact, the Palestinian Arabs have no reason to expect atone-
ment from Britain for its role during the Mandate. It did what it
could to prevent Jewish immigration and statehood. It backed
some of the most extreme Palestinian leaders like the Mufti of
Jerusalem, a British choice. It severed Jordan from the rest of
Palestine and gave it to the Arabs while repeatedly trying to ap-
pease them by offering large chunks of the rest.
If the British need to apologize or "atone" to anyone, it is to the
Israelis. Thatcher's visit to Israel was a first symbolic step in that
process. However, it is not quite enough. Even while in Israel
Thatcher managed to lecture the Israelis about the Palestinians,
noting that "because of you (the Jewish people's) high standard,
more is expected of Israel than of other countries." She told her
hosts that she favored "self-determination for the Palestinian
people" which usually means an Arab state on the West Bank
but she added that federation with Jordan seems most promis-
ing now.
Thatcher's suggestion that Palestinian Arabs find an "alter-
native" to the PLO, and her assertion that Israel's security needs
are unique and pressing, were positive. But so long as Britain con-
tinues its embargo on arms and oil sales to Israel while selling
billions in arms to the Arabs, some of her other remarks were a
bit "cheeky." After all, Prime Minister Shimon Peres while in
England recently did not lecture Thatcher about her govern-
ment's handling of Northern Ireland or about British inflexibility
over the Falklands, Peres understood that it's not his place to tell
London how to run its foreign and domestic policies despite its
own traditional "high standard." Thatcher, and other world
leaders, recognize the same about Israel.

To Honor
Judith Resnik
A campaign is under way in the
U.S. to raise $8 million for a
rehabilitative gymnasium in
Jerusalem in memory of
American astronaut Judith
Resnik and her fellow crew
members, who were killed aboard
the Challenger space shuttle last
The campaign, launched recent-
ly in New York, has given a boost
to the planned Beit Halohem
rehabilition centre for disabled
war veterans in the Jerusalem
area. Tel Aviv and Haifa already
have centres which provide com-
prehensive recreation and
rehabilitation services to
members of the country's Disabl-
ed War Veteran Organization.
The 3,500 disabled veterans in
the Jerusalem area, however,
have had to rely on a small centre
operation in an apartment com-
plex. Consequently, activities
have been limited, and there are
no sports facilities.
The proposed Beit Halohem
centre, including the memorial
gym, is to be built in Emek
Refaim. This is the valley in
southwestern Jerusalem, through
which the railway passes, and
which is the future site of the
multi-faceted Manahat (Malha)
Plans for the facility have been
approved, the only part of the
huge Manahat Project, otherwise

to have been approved. But con-
struction may not start for
another two years.
The centre will be next to a
planned archeological Biblical
Zoo. Project architect Jair Gut-
man explained that such a facility
must be built on one level. The
search for a suitable plot lasted
some 12 years until the plateau in
Emek Refaim was proposed.
The 40-dunam plot includes 25
dunams of buildings and sports
fields and 15 dunams of recrea-
tional garden. In addition to the
gym, which will have the most up-
to-date physiotherapy facilities,
the centre will include a swimm-
ing pool, tennis courts,
workshops, lecture halls, ad-
ministrative offices, an inner-
patio and a cafeteria.
Every detail has been designed
to meet the needs of the disabled,
explained Gutman, himself a
disabled veteran.

"I have just returned from
Israel. ."
(Editor's Note The following message was written by Jack D.
Weiler, who is regarded as the Dean of the Jewish Community of
Greater New York)
I've just returned from a trip to Israel, probably my 30th (I've
lost count) since my first visit in 1949.
This time my fellow American tourists were not there.
The hotel I've been staying at for 37 years, a famous Jerusalem
landmark, is usually bursting at the seams at this time of year.
Sadly, I now often found myself alone in the elevator and in the
Returning from a meeting in behalf of the School of Architec-
ture and Environmental Design of the Bezalel Art School, which I
have had the privilege of helping, I stopped with friends for a cup
of coffee. The hotel coffee shop is usually a very popular place.
The line waiting for tables was not there this time and only one
man sat inside. The picture in other hotel lobbies and in the shops
of Jerusalem was the same.
The meeting I attended earlier had been addressed by Prime
Minister Shimon Peres. When it was my turn to say a few words,
I apologized before 400 people for the failure of American Jews to
come to Israel at this time. They were hurting the country they
loved without realizing it.
I write this as a personal plea to the Jews of America and
especially the Jews of New York.
Israel is certainly not under fire and has not been in a long time.
Yet now, the Libyan madman Ghadaffi seems about to score a
victory without ever firing a shot.
Last year, tourism brought more than $1,400,000,000 into the
Israelis, anxious to achieve a stable economy, have taken a one-
quarter cut in their living standards. They have been able to count
on substantial income from tourism to play a big part in improv-
ing their balance of trade.
Visits to Israel mean something more. They are expressions of
Visitors from every country in Europe are touring Israel.
Prime Minister Thatcher was one of them. She was not afraid to
fly. She was not afraid to visit Israel.
The Europeans are not afraid.
Why are we?
Where are the American Jews?
Today the streets of Israel are much safer than those of New
York, Chicago or Los Angeles. A leading British publication has
stated that Israel is the safest country in the world. No country
has the same facilities for protecting its visitors.
Israel's beauty enchants. Its archaeological and cultural sites
fascinate. Its hotels, resorts and recreational facilities are superb.
Cancellation of missions to Israel is a victory for terrorism.
Wake up, Jews of America!
I know you love Israel as much as I do. It is a tine to prove
Organize visits to Israel in your congregation, your community,
Now is the time to show our love for and solidarity with the
people of Israel.
Mayors attending an international conference in Jerusalem prais-
ed Israel's security and urged their countrymen to show support
for peace in the region by "visiting, vacationing and travelling to
the great democratic nation of Israel."
Calling on fellow citizens to travel to Israel, the mayors said:
"We unanimously join together to promote and encourage our
citizens, our fellow countrymen, and all the people of the world to
endorse our ideals and hopes for an overall peace in this area of
the world by visiting, vacationing and travelling to the great
democratic nation of Israel."

Now Is The Time To Visit
The current world-wide travel climate has had a severe im-
pact on Israel's tourism in general and UJA missions in par-
ticular. Actual and projected figures for the spring and summer of
1986 (peak travel period) show Israeli tourism dropping almost 60
Krcent. Jewish tourism from the United States has been reduced
. 70 percent and non-Jewish travel by over 58 percent. UJA mis-
sions for the same period are off by 50 percent over the 1985
The economic loss to Israel has not been calculated, but the
figure is believed to be in the multi-million dollar range. Major
hotels have shut down entire floors and reduced staff significant-
ly. Several tour operators have had to close their businesses en-
tirely. The lack of Jewish tourism has had an impact on Israeli
morale. Previously, Israelis simply did not believe that fellow
Jews would be afraid to travel to Israel, one of the safest coun-
tries for travelers in the world. Officers of the United Jewish Ap-
peal are attempting to combat this decline in missions participa-
tion through an intensive program of promotion and recruitment
Visits to communities by prominent Israelis to tell people that
now is the most important time to come to Israel.

stop El Al flights.

A massive program of community visits on the part of top

to Israel in the near future.

CAMPAIGN '86 Federation/United Jewish Appeal
Women g Hold /'* KtJ
Women's ^olcg
Publicity Chair
You've come
a lonf w*y- Sadie!
Back in the '50s a women's gift
to Federation UJA was generally
a part of her husband's commit-
ment or even dependent upon his
generousity. We called Women's
Division fund-raising "plus giv-
ing." Several things have occur-
red in the intervening years. To-
day, many women work and
therefore have their own incomes.
Most women who do not work
nevertheless share in the family
decision making more than their
mothers did. But let us not forget
those of us who were the young
mothers of the fifties. We are no
longer taking care of growing
families. In our community, some
of us are widowed or divorced.
Many women are independent in
other states and no longer rely on
Mom. We deal with our own ac-
countants, consult our own
lawyers, and pay our own taxes.
Women have always taken care of
the family's Tzedakak now we
are in charge of our own. The gift
to Federation UJA has become a
woman's own choice and decision.
She must weigh all the pertinent
factors in her life and come to her
own conclusions. Women are
becoming more knowlegeable
about the alternative ways of sup-
porting the Jewish Federation
than ever before.
Several of those alternatives are
offered to us through the Founda-
tion of Jewish Philanthropies of
our Federation. Although the
most common use of the Founda-
tion has been as a potential
beneficiary under a will, the pro-
posed new tax laws give food for
thought. Money designated dur-
ing 1986 under the higher tax
brackets would be deducted under
those guidelines, they can then be
distributed in the future when on-
ly 27 percent maximum can be
deducted. This can be accomplish-
ed by the establishment of a
philanthropic fund maintained by
the Foundation in a separate ac-
count in the name of the donor.
The donor retains the right to
recommend how those funds are
used. For instance, if a women
usually makes a pledge of $1,000
she might get between 30 percent
and 50 percent deduction in 1986
dollars. If the proposed tax laws
are passed, in 1987 her donation
will only warrant a 15 percent or
27 percent tax deduction. If she
established a fund before the end
of 1986, with the money she ex-
pects to commit over the next five
years, the fund would grow tax-
free and she would be able to give
more in future years without any
additional tax consequences. This
fund can always be added to by
the donor and gives her the oppor-
tunity to better support any cause
she personally believes in. At the
same time all administrative
responsibilities connected with
each fund is handled by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Ft. Lauder-
dale. Of course, there are more
compelling reasons to give to
Federation UJA than only as a
tax-saving. In future columns we
will learn more of the various
ways of supporting our Federa-
tion through the Foundation.
With your money properly
taken care of, it's time to plan a
trip. It has been said that the
safest place on earth is aboard an
El Al plane flying to Israel. With
that in mind I urge each and every
one of you to consider joining a
Federation mission this year. If
you have never been to Israel,
now is the time to go and if
you've never been on a mission
you are in for a very special ex-
perience. Now is the time to go for
several reasons. First, the Israelis
need our support, both financially
and emotionally. Tourism is a ma-
jor industry in Israel and is down
40 percent this year. Americans
are afraid to travel, but the fear of
terrorism merely helps the ter-
rorists. They are achieving exact-
ly the effect they seek. When
tourists do not travel, it is Israel
that suffers. But bear in mind, El
Al is widely acknowledged as the
safest airline in the world and
Israel has kept it's streets safer
then almost any city in the United
States. You can walk down the
street in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem
with less fear than Miami or the
"strip" in Ft. Lauderdale. The
runaway inflation of the last
several years has been largely
controlled and prices that fluc-
tuated widely from day to day on-
ly one year ago are now stabilized.
In an answer to both terrorism
and world conditions the UJA Na-
tional Women's Division board
has unanimously decided to cancel
all European pre-missions. This
will enable more time to be spent
in Israel.
The Greater Ft. Lauderdale
President's mission plans to be in
Jerusalem for this memorable oc-
casion. Our group leaves from
Miami on Sept. 17 and will be in
Israel until Sept. 26. Barbara
Wiener and Steve Lewin are the
mission leaders, which promises
to be one of the outstanding of the
coming season. In addition to this
community event there will be
several national missions schedul-
ed especially for women. The an-
nual mission for community
leadership is directed toward per-
sonal growth in Women's Divi-
sion. Open to any women with
leadership qualities and an in-
terest in the campaign, it brings
an opportunity to meet with other
women from all over the country.
The dates are from Sept. 14
through Sept. 26 and will also join
others in Jerusalem for "Celebra-
tion '87."
Of special note is the Lion of
Judah Ruby Mission to be held in
Israel from Oct. 29 until Nov. 7.
This nationwide major gifts event
is planned for women who give at
least $10,000. They will see what
their contributions make possible
in Israel through visits to various
UJA-supported programs. Par-
ticipants will also have the ex-
traordinary experience of meeting
prominent Israeli men and women
from government, the arts, educa-
tion, science, business and the
The newest addition to the Mis-
sion calender will take place from
April 25 through May 5, 1987.
This will be called D'Or Le D'Or -
From Generation To Generation.
It is a unique idea that is planned
as an opportunity for the genera-
tions mothers and daughters,
grandmothers and grand-
daughters, to travel together and
explore our Jewish heritage. It is
suggested that the minimum age
for participation be 25 years old.

meeting this and the totality of
Jewish needs around the world

giving and payment will match the
challenge. We can do no less, for
in our generation, as in every
generation, we are accountable to
one people, one destiny. For those

needs, we urgently request that
you pay your gift now. Pay your

Talks At

during his recent Washington
visit that prospects for resump-
tion of talks looking to peace
negotiations with Jordan are
"one, two, or three years away"
and at present the efforts are in
"a stalemate."
His assessment of timing would
indicate talks could come after the

to beyond Shamir's scheduled

Being Able To Say No!-
Without Guilt


Social Scientists tell us that
children begin to say "NO" bet-
ween lVi and 2 years of age.
Parents teach their children when
and where "NO" will be accepted
and in what situations "NO" leads
to a reprimand and guilt.
A rigid family gives a child no
leeway and the child learns that he
can rarely exhibit independence
and do what he wants at certain
times. He is taught to passively
say "YES."
When this individual has to
assert himself in the real world, so
much guilt comes with saying
"NO" that "NO" never comes.
When a person is unable to res-
pond with "NO" much of the time
in regard to things he does not
want to do, he is doomed to self
anger and depression.
Unfortunately, people package
saying "NO" together with rejec-
tion of love and friendship. This is
not always the case. If a neighbor
asks you to give her a lift to
Publix, and you are going in the
opposite direction, you have the
right to say "NO." If a friend
wants to borrow a book that you
are reading, you can say "NO." If
your spouse wants you to do
everything he wants to do, you
can say "NO."
When we feel good about
ourselves we are able to say "NO"
without feeling guilty. When we
feel good about ourselves we are
able to help others realize that
when we say "NO" it does not
mean that our friendship is on the
line or that we are withdrawing
our love. Saying "NO" means we
have our own value system, self
respect and love for ourselves.
If after reading this article you
are still not sure about whether or
not you can say "NO" please mail
me $10 and I will send you a
receipt as soon as possible.
If you feel that you are unable to
send the money, but you still have
a problem saying "NO," call

Jewish Family Service
In Home Respite Care
The In-Home Respite Care pro-
gram at Jewish Family Service is
in its third month. Jewish Family
Service is now providing an
average of 25 families per week
with at least four hours of respite
care serving.
Many persons who are responsi-
ble for the care of elderly parents,
a spouse, or a chronically ill per-
son become so overwhelmed with
the burden that they are unable to
give themselves or their families
adequate attention.
The In-Home Respite Care pro-
gram provides supervised care for
the elderly or chronically ill per-
son while providing an interval of
relief and rest to the primary
caregiver. The In-Home Respite
Care program is intended to meet
some of the physical, emotional,
and social needs of the primary
caregiverfs), the one or two
relatives or friends who take ma-
jor responsibility for sustaining
the disabled, frail, or chronically
ill individual. These caregivers are
often in desperate need of respite,
if only for a few hours, a day or a
Mr. and Mrs. X are typical of
families helped. They are a couple
in their early 70's who have three
grown children who live out of
state. They have lived in this area
for the past 10 years. Last year
Mr. X suffered a massive stroke
which left him partially paralyzed
and somewhat confused. Mrs. X.
has assumed the role of a 24 hour
caregiver even though she has a
variety of illnesses, including
severe arthritis, which limits her
functioning. Respite Care is need-
ed because Mr. X can no longer be
left alone and Mrs. X is unable to
give her husband all the personal
care that he needs.
The Respite Care Worker comes
one afternoon a week and gives
Mr. X all the personal care he
needs, such as bathing, feeding,
and changing his bed. Mrs. X is
now free to leave the home, to
shop, visit a friend,' pointment with he.sw.n._4#or..
When she returns home, she finds
that most of her husband's
physical needs have been met for
the day and she can resume care
for him for the rest of the day and
The Respite Care service is
focused on the caregiver. While
the ill patient gets the personal
care that he/she needs the
caregiver is relieved both
physically and mentally by being
able to step away from the cons-
tant stress of 24 hour care. Such
respite helps to delay the physical
and psychological pressure for
premature placement of ill pa-
tients into nursing homes.
Respite Care Workers are ex-
perienced in all phases of personal
care. Funding for this program
has been made available through
special fund-raising efforts of the
Board of Directors of the Jewish
Family Service of Broward

tor Senior Services Jewish

A patriot of yesteryear
Who knew captivity,
The man behind George
And his victory ...
A War of Independence name
That many still don't know,
But we should all salute him now
Though he lived long ago.
Unstintedly, he gave his funds:
His stocks and bonds his all
To the Continental cause
So British rule would fall.
By lending money without charge
To colonists at war,
He helped to keep Old Glory high
To fly forevermore ...
A founding father named by all
Was Thomas Jefferson,
It's time folks knew we had one
amed Haym Salomon. *

Temple president Steve Lewin,
"We found a dynamic, creative
leader to help us grow as an active
part of this community. We're
very excited that Rabbi Littman is
joining us."
Rabbi Littman has been
Regional Director of the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations,
the national parent body of
Reform Judaism, since 1982. In
this capacity he has served as a
liaison, consultant and resource
person for 78 Reform congrega-
tions in Florida, Georgia,
Alabama, South Carolina and
Tennessee, and has been in-
strumental in the development of
15 new congregations.
A native of Trenton, N.J., Rabbi
Littman holds degrees from
Rutgers University in New
Brunswick, N.J., and the Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Institute of
Religion in New York, where he
was ordained in 1967.
Rabbi Littman brings to Bat
Yam a strong background in
theater and Jewish music. His lec-
ture concerts have been perform-
ed throughout the eastern part of
the country, and several of his
creative worship services have
been published nationally.
"The accomplishments of the
past year have been amazing,"
said Rabbi Littman. "It's an ex-
citing challenge for all of us to see
a future so full of possibilities."
