Excellence in Judaic Education Emphasizing Jewish Identity.
The Hebrew Day School of Fort Lauderdale
According to Jewish law and tradition, it is incumbent upon every father to educate
his children. If he himself cannot teach his child then he is obligated to find a school that
will fulfill his parental obligations. The Hebrew Day School of Fort Lauderdale serves the
Broward County area as the source of outstanding Jewish education.
The Hebrew Day School is a member of the Jewish Federation 'family of agencies/
supported by the annual Federation/United Jewish Appeal Campaign.
The Hebrew Day School of Fort Lauderdale, folly accredited by the Association
of Independent Schools of Florida, was founded in 1974 by a group of concerned
parents seeking a superior general studies program and Judaic education with a
strong emphasis on Jewish identity.
The Hebrew Day School creates a world filled with knowledge and concern for
others. Preparing children to be the leaders of tomorrow is perpetuated through in-
dividualized, innovative, dynamic and creative efforts of the Hebrew Day School
philosophic implementation. It is here at this community day school that each and every
child does work and achieves his/her fullest potential. Excellence in education is the pur-
suit; the child at the Hebrew Day School is the most valuable commodity in this educa-
tional process.
Staff members of the Day School are certified by the State of Florida and are ex- Leading the way at Hebrew Day School are Dr. Mare Schwartz,

The Jews of Yugoslavia Lead tiie Good Life
Inhabitants of a land with a unique complex of six
republics and two autonomous provinces, the Jews of
Yugoslavia lead the good life a life of relative ease,
security and almost total non-discrimination. They co-exist
with their Moslem, Catholic and Orthodox countrymen in
harmony and tranquility in a state where no one faith
dominates to the detriment of any other.
They are also fortunate in their environment The land
they inhabit is magnificent and replete with scenic con-
trasts, dazzling panoramic mountains, lakes, rivers, and, on
the Adriatic, a riviera that puts those of Italy, Prance and
Spain to shame.
Tightly organised within the Federation of Jewish Com-
munities, some 6,000 Jews may seem a trifling number in a
nation of 22 million, but they play a large role in the com-
munal life of the country.
The saga of the Jews of Yugoslavia during the shattering
period of World War II is one of tragedy and triumph.
Numbering 82,000 before the Holocaust, they were reduced
to 16,000 by war's end. But in an era when the Nazis prac-
ticed genocide on an unprecedented and incalculable scale,
Yugoslavian Jews fought back.
Beginning in 1941, Jews in large numbers joined the par-
tisans in the War of National Liberation. Jewish youth as

Coral Springs 'Showcase' Sept. 21
The Coral Springs Area Coali-
tion of Jewish Organizations, with
25 organizations under its um-
brella, is preparing to present its
first annual Coral Springs
"Showcase'' of Jewish
This innovative program came
about as an educational tool
because many Jews as well as non-
Jews are unfamiliar with the
operations and objections of the
various Jewish organizations.
"Almost all the Jewish people
and some non-Jews can name
most of the organizations," stated
Stan Kane, Coalition president,
"However, few really know exact-
ly what these organizations do or
how they operate."
The "Showcase" will be held on
Sunday, Sept. 21, from 1 to 4 p.m.
in the main auditorium of Temple
Beth Orr, Coral Springs. All
organizations participating, in-
cluding the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, will
have a table manned by the
organizations' representatives
who will be able to answer ques-
tions, and hand out flyers,
literature and brochures about
their organization. Free gifts,
balloons and flags will be available
for children.
"New arrivals to Coral Springs
or the surrounding communities,
both Jews and non-Jews alike, are
cordially invited to attend. The
Coalition will have a Shalom Com-
mittee stationed so that they may
welcome all who stop by," Kane

Sherr in announcing the

"Each of us, every Jew, has a
stake in the building of our Jewish

munity, to reap its benefits, to use
its services, and to work together
to sustain its realities and to en-
sure its hopes."

An Experience of a Lifetime

Florida Volunteers for Israel
Editor Note: Benjamin
Dinkes is the regional coordinator
for Volunteers for Israel, funded
in part by the Federation/UJA an-
nual campaign.
June 16 was the commencement
of new experiences for my wife,
Sylvia, and I for several reasons.
First, we used Tower Air instead
of El Al; second, we worked in dif-
ferent areas of the program;
third, we worked and lived like
kibbutzniks for 11 days.
Over the years, we worked on
different archeological digs where
the volunteers used Tower Air.
Why did we use Tower Air instead
of El Al? June is a heavy travel
month to Israel. El Al did not have
room for all the volunteers who
applied. The main office of
"Volunteers" therefore, had to
use Tower Air. To our surprise,
the food and service was com-
parable to El Al. The trip is also
non-stop to Israel.

United States-Israel
Memorandum on Tourism
Aware of the close friendships between the people
and the Governments of the United States and the
State of Israel, the two countries have issued a
memorandum on tourism.
The lack of American tourists to Israel this year has
hurt the Israeli economy. Recognizing this fact, the
U.S. Government and Israel joined to issue the follow-
ing statements: the affirmation of the importance of
the unhindered flow of tourists between the respective
countries; the issuance of welcome to each other's na-
tionals to visit the territory of the other, the hope that
the citizens of both countries will enter into sister
cities and other cooperative relationships; the
acknowledgement of the importance of the exchange
of information in different areas such as investment,
development of projects, promotion and tourism ser-
vices; and the development of package tours and
tourism programs in the respective countries.
The Government of the U.S. reaffirms its desire to
receive tourists from Israel and invited the people of
Israel to experience, "America, Catch the Spirit."

people of the U.S. to visit Israel, the "Miracle on the

Share The Spirit
The UJA Way
This past year, Federation/UJA helped to educate
the Greater Fort Lauderdale Jewish community about
the programs in Israel and in overseas countries sup-
ported by campaign gifts.
And now the results are in and we in North Broward
County can indeed stand proud!
We have seen firsthand how the funds are used
locally, planning, coordinating and funding the social
welfare, educational, cultural and community rela-
tions programs that help to create a positive environ-
ment for Jewish life, one in which ail of us may be sus-
tained and flourish. We, our family, friends, have all
been touched in one way or another by the Hebrew
Day School students, the JCC events, the JFS
counselor, or the special programs of our varied
beneficiaries and agencies.
But what we don't see what we don't hear about
what we don't know is how the dollars touch the
lives of our brethren thousands of miles across the
oceans. Does my gift from Plantation really reach
Israel or India. .will my pledge help the Jews of
Poland or Portugal, and does my contribution
brighten the lives of both Czechs and Chilians?
You bet their lives that it does and here is the
Immigration and absorption of new immigrants.
Education programs providing scholarships for
underprivieged youngsters.
Establishment and maintenance of new
Youth Aliyah, the residential training program
that helps youth.
Social programs that touch the lives of the elderly,
the disabled and the disadvantaged.
Special housing programs for those in assistance
and much more.
And what about India? Does the dollar reach that
far? Ask the 4,000 Jewish school students who receive
hot lunches daily or the elderly relief and welfare reci-
pients. And yes, Polish Jews are indeed grateful for
the Kosher kitchens, medicines, welfare holiday sup-
plies, cultural programs and Holocaust survivors
relief, some sue thousand of them.
And the list goes on, worldwide.. .millions of our
brethren who thanks to you have a better life. Federa-
tion/UJA monies provide a miracle for many.. .ask
the Jews of Mexico City who were in the devastating
earthquake or the survivors of the disastrous
mudslides in Columbia. And the story goes on.
So the next time you think about where your dollar
goes, and if indeed it does help in Israel and over 30
lands around the world, as well as our own communi-
ty, just think about these results they are gratify-
ing, they are wonderous and they happen because of
You. Because you care to be a part of the Jewish com-
munity's major philanthrophy, and share the spirit of
"One People, One Destiny!"
If you have already made and paid your pledge in
'86, our heartfelt thanks; if not, write or call Federa-
tion/UJA today at 7U8-U00. __ MLy

In The Spotlight...
The Jews of Yugoslavia
Continued from Page 1
Their valor in battle was legen-
dary and is honored and
remembered to this day. The
medical staff of the partisans was
almost totally Jewish. Fairly
reliable figures indicate that some
4,500 Jews joined in partisan
military activities and in the
Movement of National Liberation,
and that about one third perished
in the battle against fascist forces.
Fifteen of those designated as
National Heroes at the end of the
war were Jewish, two of them still
alive, and 150 survivors were
awarded the Partisan Star 1941.
In the Yugoslav People's Army,
14 Jews reached the rank of
general, two of them lieutenant-
general, two major-general and 10
The outstanding Jewish fighter
was Moshe Piade, a very close
friend and comrade-in-arms ol
Marshal Tito, and a member of the
supreme staff of the Army ol
Liberation. Streets in Belgradt
and other cities bear his name
and statues everywhere com
memorate this heroic figure whe
died in the 1960s while he was
president of the National Parlia
ment, ranking almost next to Tito
He helped make it possible foi
8,000 Jews to migrate with al
their possessions to Israel after.
There are all kinds of relations
with Israel except diplomatic.
Close commercial ties exist, non-
restrictive tourism between the
two nations flourishes. Yugoslav
Jews who settled in Israel are con-
stantly returning to visit relatives
and friends and the traffic flows
both ways. Belgrade and Zagreb
Jews are often sent as delegates
to congresses and major sports
events in Israel.
With the approval of the
authorities, the Jewish communi-
ty in 1985 sent teams to par-
ticipate in the 12th Maccabia in
Israel, and Yugoslavia was the on-
ly country in the Eastern and
Balkan blocs to do so. Tel Aviv
and Zagreb are initiating a twin-
city relationship.
Dragam Wollner, president of
the Zagreb Jewish community,
voiced the hope that diplomatic
relations between the two nations
would be announced within the
next year or two as a formal ex-
pression of the de facto recogni-
tion that presently seems to exist.
Although Yugoslavia is a leader
of the non-aligned countries and
the PLO has an office in Belgrade,
the government exerts strict con-
trol of the Arab students in the
University of Belgrade. There are
no anti-Semitic manifestations,
nor would they be tolerated were
they to occur.
Jewish officials in Belgrade
point out that in 1984, when a
writer incorporated the infamous
Protocols of the Elders ofZion into
a book he was publishing, the
Jewish Federation protested to
the Supreme Court of Serbia,
which promptly prohibited
distribution of the volume. The at-
titude of the press toward Israel is
somewhat mixed and varies from
one republic to another, but it is
on the whole quite favorable. The
sentiment of the man in the steet
is almost universally pro, accor-
ding to Jewish leaders.
In a theoretically classless socie-
ty, there are classes and degrees
of wealth, according to Andreas
Preger, director of youth and
education for the federated
Jewish communities. He noted
that Jews are in the middle and
upper ranges of the economic
scale: doctors, dentists, pro-
fessors, engineers, administrators
and businessmen.
Many also serve in high govern-
ment positions. They play leading
roles in the cultural, artistic and
intellectual life of the nation.
There is a voracious demand, he
said, for the works of foreign
authors and the books of I.B.
Singer, for example, are sold as
soon as they appear.
A tour of the communities
Belgrade, with 1,500 Jews;
Zagreb, 1,400; Sarajevo, 1,200;
and Split, about 300 revealed
that the Federation officials in
each city are waging a battle for
Jewish survival. The number of
Jews is shrinking, very slowly but
steadily. There is more stability in
the large centers, but the smaller
communities are diminishing
rapidly. Zagreb leaders reported
that a census of the Jewish
population is now under way and
will be shortly completed by the
In Dubrovnik the "jewel of the
Adriatic," where there had been
350 Jews in the 18th century, only
eight are left and not even one
family remains intact. Mixed mar-
riages are the rule, not only here,
but everywhere. The bitter
heritage of World War II was the
scarcity of Jewish women as
mates for returning Jewish
prisoners of war. The sole vestige
of Jewish life in Dubrovnik is the
exquisite but little-used 14th cen-
tury synagogue in "Jewish

secular state are major reasons
for the total lack of Orthodox
Jews. Most Jews do not attend
synagogue. It was far different
before the war, when there were
strong Sephardic and Ashkenazi
groups with firm religious convic-
tions. Today, there is only one rab-
bi (Sepharaic) in all Yugoslavia.
He is based in Belgrade but
travels to the various com-
munities to hold services.
A significant aspect of Federa-
tion activity is its summer camp
program. The camp, on the lovely
Adriatic cost at Pirovac, north of
Split, operates from June to
September, and receives some 400
community members ranging in
age from 6 to 80, in groups of 80
at a time. In June and September,
the elderly take over, but the sum-
mer months are reserved for
youngsters from 6 to 10, and from
10 to 15.
What is of special interest is
that the Federation also invites
youth from such Eastern Euro-
pean countries as Czechoslovakia,
Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary.
Good Life
The latter country poses a pro-
blem in this regard, local Jewish
leaders indicated, because the
Hungarian authorities fear that
their youth will receive Zionist in-
doctrination at the camp. Still,
some young Hungarians attend
and their visits are arranged
through private channels.
A touching moment during this
Balkan odyasey was the visit to
the only Jewish home for the aged
in the country, in Zagreb. Set in a
private park, the handsome
building contains well-furnished
studio apartments and rooms,
spacious lounges, a hospital
library, and an elegant, flower-
bedecked dining room worthy of a
four-star hotel.
The 80 occupants, ranging into
the upper 90s, are well dressed,
poised and remarkably alert. The
respect and devotion accorded
them, and the all-pervasive sereni-
ty and comfort, might well serve
as a model for similar
establishments in the U.S., where
relatively few homes for the aged
approach the level encountered in
Next October, the community is
planning a three-day celebration
of its 180th anniversary, on the
same date when, in 1941,
unknown vandals began the
destruction of the synagogue, and
the Jews of Zagreb were led by
the German occupiers to the con-
centration camps. >
Slavko Zvezdic, 79, a resident of
the charming coastal city of Split,
and the vigorous president of its
Jewish community now number-
ing only 40 families, states:
"There were Jews living in my ci-
ty, together with Greeks and
Romans, 2,000 years ago at the
time when Phoenician traders and
sailors flourished here, and before
even the Slavs came six centuries
later. We're doing all we can with
Jewish activities, seminars, sum-
mer camps, little Maccabiads.
Perhaps some day we will be only
a museum and not a Jewish center
at all, but if this happens, it won't
be because we didn't try. We're
doing all we can do to keep the
flame of Jewishness alive."
Funds raised by the Federa-
tion/UJA campaign are
distributed by the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee to provide for the
Jews of Yugoslavia.

CAJE Bible Study Group
Begins Fifth Year
The opening session of the fifth
year of the Hug Tanach, the com-
munity Bible study group,
organized by the Central Agency
for Jewish Education of the
Jewish Federation of Greater Ft.
Lauderdale, will take place on
Monday morning, Sept. 8 at the
Jewish Federation building on
West Oakland Park Boulevard.
Designed to provide an oppor-
tunity for intensive study and
analysis of one of the most belov-
ed of all Biblical texts, the Book of
Psalms, the group brings together
some 25 Rabbis, educators, Can-
tors and knowledgeable laymen
who meet bi-weekly.
Members take turns in leading
each session, and through the an-
cient Biblical method of examina-
tion of every word and phrase of
the text, they illuminate the fine
points of each of the verses of the
Rabbi Albert Schwartz, Federa-
tion's director of Chaplaincy Ser-
vices, and a charter member of
the group, noted that "The joy of
Torah study is a supreme value in
Jewish life. The existence of such
a group in our community is visi-
ble evidence of the constantly in-
creasing quality of Jewish life and
Jewish learning."
Mystical allusions in the text,
grammatical explanations, tradi-
tional and modern commentaries,
historical analysis and contem-
porary ethical ideals ... all are
part of the interpretations that
flow out of the passionate
religious poetry that comprises
the Book of Psalms.
Leader of the first session will
be Rabbi Menachem Raab, direc-
tor of the Department of Day
Schools of CAJE. He was ordain-
ed and awarded his doctoral
degree from Yeshiva University.
Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson, CA-
JE director of Education noted
that this would be the fourth year
that Rabbi Raab would lead the
opening session of the group.
"When someone does something
in Jewish life for three con-
secutive times he has the right to
continue doing it permanently,"
stated Gittelson. "We hope that
Rabbi Raab exercises this
privilege in the years to come until
we complete the 150 chapters of
the Psalms."
Two years ago, due to the in-
terest in Jewish study, a second
group was formed to meet directly
after the Bible class. This group,
the Hug Talmud, studies one of
the tractates of the Babylonian
Talmud dealing with the laws,
customs and concepts of the holi-
day of Purim. It includes, in addi-
tion to the holiday, elements of
Jewish philosophy, ethics, history,
folk lore and legal matters
relating to a host of other subject
Rabbi Schwartz served as the
leader for the first year, with Rab-
bi Samuel Cooper conducting the
class during the past year. Each
member of the group prepares
selected portions of the text
before each class, so as to engage
fully in the time-honored
Talmudic style of dialectical
The Bible group was modeled on
the World Jewish Bible Society
that was founded by David Ben
Gurion, the first Prime Minister of
the State of Israel, and a life-long
student of the Bible.
Individuals who possess a wide
knowledge of Bible and Talmud
are invited to join the groups,
which meet bi-weekly at the
Federation from 9:15-10:46 a.m.
and from 10:45 to 12:00 noon.
The next meeting is scheduled for
Sept. 22.

Memories From '66 to '86
Editor' Note: The following in-
formation is compiled with the
help of Federation's first presi-
dent Ludwik Brodzki.
"Heed The Call!" and heed they
did the dedicated and devoted
men and women who were the
nucleus of the then 1969 Jewish
Federation of North Broward and
the United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign. Now into his second year as
president, Ludwik Brodzki began
an intensive hard-hitting cam-
paign effort to aid in the life-
saving, life-giving work ac-
complished by what was now the
Jewish community's major
The harbinger of what would be
the year's successful drive began
when the First Annual Jewish
Federation of North Broward
Dinner-Dance was held on Satur-
day, Jan. 25 at the Gait Ocean
Mile Hotel in Fort Lauderdale
featuring Dr. Arieh S. Plotkin,
former officer in the Israeli
Defense Force and leading
authority on Middle East affairs.
In addition, the Federation
leaders enjoyed the renditions of
the world famous Israeli
songstress Yaffa Yarkoni and the
music of Miami Beach's Ben
Novak and his orchestra.
On Feb. 19, Federation's Initial
Gift Dinner featured Aviah Yafeh,
director of the Prime Minister's
Bureau and political secretary to
Israel Prime Minister Levi Eshkol
and Sheldon B. Guren, national
UJA campaign cabinet leader.
The UJA "Initial Gifts Dinner"
which originally raised $4,513 in
'66 now accounted for more than
$50,000. There was a healthy 50
percent increase over '68
resulting in an increase in funding
to beneficiaries and agencies, in-
cluding Jewish Family Service,
and the Chaplaincy Program for
Jewish students in Broward
Junior College, Fort Lauderdale
University and Florida Atlantic
Under the guidance of '69 cam-
paign cabinet executive chairman
Martin Fridovich, Federa-
tion/UJA was on its way.
Countless fund-raising events
were held, each one more suc-
cessful than the previous. The
areas of Margate under the
leadership of Israel Resnikoff,
Pompano Beach with Ira Boris
and other surrounding com-
munities now began to take the in-
itiative accounting for increased

Sylvia and I had been invited to
spend as much time as we wanted
in Kibbutz Malkeya in the Galilee.
We took advantage of this offer.
There is only one bus a day that
goes to Kibbutz Malkeya in the
Galilee from Haifa. It services all
the Kibbutzim and Arab villages
along the route.
What would have been a hum-
drum ride turned out to be a very
exciting one. The beauty of the
land, the orchards, the farms, the
fish ponds, the forests all came in-
to view as the ride progressed up
the mountain. The bus driver sen-
sing our excitement became our
tour guide pointing out different
places of interest. For example: in
the easternly direction, you can
see the Hulah Valley, then the
Golan Heights, and in the nor-
theast Mt. Herman, Lebanon was
on the other side of the fence next
to the road we were traveling.
Jackie, our hostess met us at the
bus stop. As we walked the
kilometer to her home, we
wondered about our accommoda-
tions; will we be comfortable in
our new environment; what would
we do; where do we eat; what kind
of people live on the kibbutz; what
is their relationship with one
another; their cultural and
demographic backgrounds?
We could not believe our eyes as
we approached the home of Bob
and Jackie (Bob is a psychologist
and Jackie is a bio-chemist). The
homes in the area were modern
town houses painted white with
red shingles on the roofs. The
landscaping of grass, flowers and
trees made the surroundings
similar to that in any fully land-
scaped neighborhood in the
United States.
The interiors were equally as
beautiful. The first floor had a
den, small kitchen, a dining room
living room combination and a
patio. The upper floor had two
bedrooms and a second patio.'Was
this the way a kibbutznik lives or
were we dreaming? The reality is
that some Kibbutzim are more ad-
vanced than others. We were
lucky to be guests at Kibbutz
families and 350 children plus
volunteers live in Malkeya. The
original group came from Iran in
1948. They took over an abandon-
ed British Army Camp on top of
the mountain. As of 1986,
members come from 12 countries.
Their life style is enviable, the
family unit is a cohesive one.
Parents hugging and kissing their
children, the children responding
in a similar fashion. Families in
American have lost this touch of
one for all, all for one.
Children start early with
responsibilities. They have to
work a certain number of hours a
year, to fulfill their obligation to
the kibbutz. Shelly, the daughter
of our hosts (16 years old) worked
in the fields. Saturday is Kibbutz
visiting day no invites just
knock on the door and say "Shab-
bot Shalom."
Education is important to the
Kibbutz, not only for the children
but for the adults as well. Malkeya
had their own primary school staf-
fed by teachers who live there and
a centrally located high school
shared with other kibbutzim. The
high school teachers are also Kib-
butzniks. The adult's education in
college is financed by the Kibbutz.
Members have many profes-
sional backgrounds. There are:
PhD's, college professors, a con-
servative rabbi (he went to the
Seminary in NYC with Rabbi
Josiah Derby's son Levi),
psychologists, agronomists,
economists, civil, mechanical and
electrical engineers, an or-
thonologist, nurses, computer
technicians, a micro biologist,
poets (with published works), etc.
The Kibbutz produces cattle for
beef, chickens for meat (as com-
pared to egglayers) one half
million per year, 60 tons of
Keeweea (this is being enlarged),
2,500 tons of different varieties of
apples, 285 tons of plums, fish
from the fish ponds, pears, wheat,
corn, cotton and educational
Its a tall order to achieve so
much production with a limited
membership. Volunteers are,
therefore, welcome. Current
volunteers come from Denmark,
Ireland, Sweden, Scotland and
Sixteen female soldiers lived on
the Kibbutz as part of their army
training. Their period of service
ended while we were there. As a
final gesture, they presented a
show for the members. The
details, the songs, dances and
scenery were all taken care of by
the soldiers.
After a short furlough, they will
establish a Nahal Settlement on
the West Bank. The initial group
will be composed of 30 male and
20 female soldiers. They are all
aware of the hardships starting a
new Kibbutz-yet this is there
choice Kol Ha Kovot!
Another celebration was when
one of the member families was
leaving for one year to go to
Sweden. All the guests shared in
the party preparations; they
brought cakes, fruits and candy to
the gathering.
Students who just graduated
from high school also presented
their own version of a play before
leaving on a (Teul) trip to Greece
financed by the Kibbutz and in
part from earnings credited to
each student for his work
Our hosts invited us to go with
them to home of the students to
offer congratulations. It was a
great feeling to be part of that
So what about the dining room
Breakfast and Supper is about
the same-tomatoes, cuccumbers,
red and green peppers, olives,
bread, margarine, jelly, eggs, cof-
fee, tea and milk.
Lunch meat, chicken,
vegetarian preparations,
potatoes, rice, eggplant, soup,
pickles, olives, etc.
Chopping the vegetables from
breakfast and supper became
monotonous; the Israelis thrive on
Sylvia worked in the game fac-
tory (Orda). She assembled the
components that make up a game.
Every game is educational design-
ed for different age groups. They

I worked in a Keewee orchard.
The growth of a Keewee vine has

upon the cooperation of its

Women Hold Ibe Key.
Women's Aioice
Publicity Chair
The Megilla (Scroll of Esther),
which we read on Purim, tells us
that 2500 years ago a Jewish
woman was so convinced of the
need for unity among her people
(4:16) that she was able to save the
Jews of Persia We are very for-
tunate in having as our President
a modern day "Esther." Esther
Lerner has, with her grace and
charm, her wit and intelligence,
unified our Women's Division and
led us in the raising of over one
million dollars for the life-saving
goals of Federstion/UJA.
Esther Lerner came to Fort
Lauderdale, with her late husband
Bob, from Ohio .. but this is not
the story I wish to tell. A more
fascinating journey was one taken
by a necklace. It is a beautiful
chain and pendant that is very in-
tricately woven in gold and set
with lovely green stones.
In the year 1899, Esther's aunt
prepared to leave her small town
in Russia. With her husband, who
was in the importing business, she
planned to travel to China. When
Aunt Bertha left home, her
mother, Sarah, removed a pen-
dant from her own neck and plac-
ed it on her daughter. Shortly
after the young couple arrived in
China, the Russo-Japanese war
broke out. They never could get
back home. From then on they
were "wandering Jews." The
family would hear from them
whenever there was an earth-
quake or other problems in that
foreign country. Their odyssey
took them through Harbin and
Manchuria until they reached
Shanghai. For almost 30 years,
Esther's mother (whose name was
also Bertha) went to the kosher
market to buy staples, such as
cocoa and sugar to send to her
sister-in-law. The parcels reached
China under the auspices of the
United Jewish Appeal. "As soon
as a package was received, she
would send another." This went
on until the establishment of the
State of Israel in 1948. They had
been in China for over half a cen-
tury. It was learned that if they
could get assistance from UJA,
the elderly couple could board a
ship that would take them to
Israel. There they would be placed
in a Malban home for the aged. At
this point, Esther's husband went
to the UJA office in Lorain, Ohio
to ask for help in rescuing their
After negotiations involving the
United Jewish Appeal in New
York, Ohio and China, Aunt Ber-
tha and her husband boarded a
ship that took them to San Fran-
cisco. From there they traveled
across the U.S.A. and on to Israel.
While in California, the necklace
again changed hands. With the
words, "Your packages have kept
us alive," Aunt Bertha placed her
pendant on the neck of her sister-
in-law (Esther's mother). She had
worn it for all of those years
removing it, only then, in loving
gratitude for the woman who sav-
ed their lives. Today this heirloom
is in the possession of Esther's
daughter, Eve, and will someday
be given to granddaughter Amy.
Esther has said, "This necklace,
which is more than one hundred
years old, is a symbol of the help
and caring of generations that
characterizes both our family and
our Women's Division's purpose
through UJA. Without the help of
the UJA those life-saving
packages would not have reached
their destination."
Esther Lerner
When speaking of her mother
Esther tells us, "Even as a young
woman, Mother had her own shop.
She was always in business and
set an example of intelligence and
independence for the women of
our family. She was also an involv-
ed person who taught me much
about compassion and the giving
of oneself. My grandmother,
whom I adored, always had a 'blue
box,' the traditional pushke for
raising money for land in Israel.
My first Jewish memories are of
my grandmother. I still have the
brass candlesticks my grand-
mother got as s wedding present
from her mother. They weren't
new then, so they are probably
even older than the necklace."
For the past several years,
Esther's daughter Eve has run
the community seders on
Passover in her synagogue.
Granddaughter Amy was Bat
Mitzvahed two years ago. Amy's
brother, Benjy, was just Bar Mitz-
vahed. Mathew, the youngest, will
be called to the Torah when he is
18. Eve, herself, is a teacher of
children with learning disabilities
and is working on her Master's
Degree. Esther's daughter,
Susan, is Director of Continuing
Education at Felician College in
Chicago and is currently earning
her doctorate. Granddaughter
Laura is studying for Bat Mitxvah
and Carolyn will enjoy hers in just
a few years. Ross Lerner,
Esther's son, was introduced to
the Women's Division last year
when he wrote a beautiful poem in
honor of his mother's installation.
Esther has participated in
several community missions to
Israel and enthusiastically en-
courages others to do the same.
She plans to join the National
Women's Division in Israel this
November. She is especially proud
of the work done by our Women's
Division in our Project Renewal
neighborhoods of Kfar Saba. Each
time Esther has returned to Fort
Lauderdale with a renewed desire
to go back again. Last year Esther
took part in the President's Mis-
sion to Israel and Poland. She has
said, "I never in my life thought
that I was going to make a trip to
Poland. That was the last place I
cared to go. Why would I want to
go to Poland, to see Auschwitz, to
see Birkenow ... those terrible
words? But I would never, never
have traded that experience. It
was a horrible experience, emo-
tionally. It was a draining ex-
perience, but I think all of us left
very different people than when
we arrived. If we were ever aware

UJA Announces its First-Ever Pre-Missions to Israel..
President's Mission Strengthened Jewry
Noted artist Yaacov Agam, is
among the prominent Israelis who
will host exciting United Jewish
Appeal pre-mission to Israel this
The pre-mission, six special
days in Israel, will focus on such
topics as the visual and perform-
ing arts. They are part of the
UJA's President's Mission, which
will take place Sept. 17-26. The
mission is one element of Celebra-
tion '87, the UJA/Federation
Campaign Opening in Israel.
Federation's contingent of cam-
paigners will join with community
leaders representing the U.S. and
Canada as part of their once-in-a
lifetime celebration in Jerusalem
on the President's Mission Sept.
15-28. The Mission which is open-
ed to those persons making a
$10,000 minimum gift to the '87
Federation/UJA campaign pro-
mises to be really sensational, ac-
cording to co-chairpersons Bar-
bara Wiener and Steven Lewin.
They also announced that two
Mission options have been offered
including the full tour dates as
well as for those with a limited
amount of time available, a
shorter time span of Sept. 21-26.
Pre-miasions to European and
other countries have long been a
part of UJA Mission programs,
but this marks the first time that
such pre-missions will take place
in Israel. The idea came from UJA
National vice chairman Sandra
Weiner of Houston, who said,
"Israel pre-missions offer an op-
portunity for a dose look at
aspects of Israel we don't usually
experience. Our President's Mis-
sion gives us the opportunity to
see the areas of Jewish Agency ac-
tivity we help support through our
UJA Campaign Youth Aliyah,
rural settlement, Project
Renewal, immigrant absorption.
The addition of pre-missions to
Israel will enable us to explore
new and different facets of Israeli
life, enhancing both our
knowledge and commitment"
Marvin Lender of New Haven,
UJA Major Gifts and President's
Mission chairman, added, "More
than ever, the Israeli experience
has become the cornerstone of our
major gift fund-raising efforts."
Lender, who is also a UJA Na-
tional Vice Chairman, said,
"These pre-missions help par-
ticipants expand their awareness
of the total Israeli scene. A fuller
understanding of the history, arts,
culture and style of the land and
people of Israel can only lead to
more informed solicitations."
Lender added that over 500 Presi-
dent's Mission applications have
already been received by UJA,
and the great interest is very en-
couraging in terms of the 1987
campaign effort. "Our presence in
Israel will send a strong message
to Jews around the world."
The President's Mission, in-
cluding its Israel pre-missions, is
one of five missions UJA will be
sponsoring this fall as part of
Celebration '87. Joining the Presi-
dent's Mission will be the Chazak

part in the gala celebration, that
will include a gathering at the
Western Wall addressed by Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, as well as

In addressing the new tax pro-

tax rates go down next year or
not, NOW is the time to make
your promises come true. Keep
yours. Then we'll be able to keep
ours. We promise."

CJF Inaugurates New North
American Jewish Data Bank
The Ckkincfl of Jewish Federa-
tions has inaugurated a new
North American Jewish Data
Bank which will serve as both a
practical tool for Jewish com-
munal planning across the conti-
nent and a vital resource for
scholarship. It will provide basic
and essential Jewish demographic
data that will offer Federations
throughout the United States and
Canada an overview of regional
and national trends and a wider
perspective on Jewish communal
The Data Bank is the result of
an agreement reached between
CJF, guided by its Long-Range
Planning Committee chaired by
Mandell L. Berman of Detroit,
and the Graduate Center of the
City University of New York to
create a North American Jewish
Data Bank through which
research data on the Jewish
population will be collected and
analyzed. It ig being established in
response to recommendations
made at the CJF-sponsored Collo-
quium on Jewish Population
Studies in 1984.
The official inauguration of the
Data Bank took place on June 3 at
the Graduate Center of the City
University of New York. Par-
ticipants m the ceremony included
Mandell L. Berman, Carmi
Schwartz, CJF Executive Vice
President, Dr. Joseph S. Murphy,
Chancellor of the City University
of New York, and Dr. Harold M.
Proshansky, President of the
Graduate School and University
Center, CUNY, as well as a
number of trustees, regents and
other dignitaries.
The Data Bank was developed
over the course of a year of discus-
sions with scholars at CUNY,
headed by Dr. Paul Ritterband,
Professor of Sociology and Jewish
Studies at City College and the
Graduate School. Dr. Ritterband
will serve as Senior Research
Fellow of the Data Bank.
In addition to CUNY, the Data
Bank, which will be headed by Dr.
Barry A. Kosmin of CJF, will be
working cooperatively with the
Hebrew University of Jerusalem
and with Brandeis University.
The gathering of Jewish
demographic data has a long and
impressive history going bade to
Biblical times. As the demography
of the Jewish people changed with
the major movements of the
Diaspora and with evolving
political and social environments,
the history of Jewish data gather-
ing changed as well.
After the Enlightenment, the
Jews of Europe used data banks
for the practical planning of effec-
tive and efficient Jewish com-
munities that were not only
vibrant social entities in and of
themselves, but also in touch with
the mainstream of contemporary
social reality.

campers, "This summer has got to
be remembered." And so groups
from Camps Katan, Chaverim,

a time capsule filled with special
mementos, objects they felt

out! "The time will be announced
later on," says Michael Cohen,
Chaverim Unit Head!
Just to be different, Patti
Seiden, Unit Head Camp
Chalutz, thought up a good idea
and put it in writing! She had her
campers write letters to campers
unknown to them in North
Miami's Michael-Ann Russell
JCC. And her counterpart there
did the same with her campers
initiating quite an exchange!
Campers wrote about
themselves and Unit heads match-
ed the boys' and girls' letters ac-
cording to age and interest. Each
campus hosted visitors from
across the county lines campers
met their pals and some fast
friendships formed!
Stacey Zavinsky, Senior
Counselor Camp Chalutz, also
initiated an original enterprise for
campers in her charge! Choosing
two area "senior homes," Leisure
Life and Tiffany House, she had
her girls produce tape recordings
and write letters which were sent
to, the homes for residents to read
and answer. Campers also learned
special songs to entertain the
seniors in person. They visited
both facilities and made friends
and entertained much to the
delight of the most appreciative

I Am This Way Because of You
As parents we all try to do our
best to raise our children. Each
day a parent has to make various
decisions regarding his/her child's
welfare. When we are confronted
with circumstances of a particular
problem, we give it some thought,
consider the alternative solutions
for our child and ourself, then act
by choosing the "best solution."
For example a child may want to
remain at a friend's house beyond
the normal curfew time, and we
decide that it is in the child's best
interest to demand that he be
home the regular specified time.
The "best solution" is often the
result of our parent's attitudes,
our own attitudes, and the infor-
mation we get from the media in-
cluding books, radio and
Fortunately the parents of to-
day have all kinds of help in bring-
ing up children. Unlike yester-
day's parents who mostly received
information regarding child rear-
ing from their parents, we have
gadgets, how to do books and li-
quid tylenol to get us through the
parenting ritual. There is also
disposable diapers, disposable bot-
tles, Sesame Street, and Drs.
Seuss, Spock and Freud in our
corner. The process of child rear-
ing today is markedly different
than it was years ago.
As therapists at Jewish Family
Service, we often hear young and
middle age adults blame parents
for their current emotional pro-
blems and inability to adjust to the
stresses of life. The parents of
these adults as well come to us
with their "child's" statement
that "I am this way because of
you." In response to this state-
ment, we say: in every individual's
life there comes a time when
he/she must be accountable for
her/his own behavior and pro-
blems. This business of passing
the buck to father or uncle Harry
is both childlike and non-
We are not suggesting that
parenting patterns do not effect
personality or behavior patterns
in later life. We are just emphasiz-
ing the fact that the responsibility
for current behavior and behavior
change now rests upon the in-
dividual who feels that he or she
has a problem.
Legally, parents are responsible
for a child until the ages of 17 or
18 depending where you live. It's
time for parents to accept the fact
that you did the best you could at
the time, given your alternatives.
It's also time for everybody above
the age of 18 to accept their
responsibility for their own
behavior and work toward change
if a problem is acknowledged.

Oceanside Leader
Ruth Rauch Memorial
The family of Federation was saddened by the passing of com-
munity leader Ruth Rauch, of Gait Ocean Mile, who along with
her husband Lee, provided a heartfelt dedication and devotion to
our Greater Fort Lauderdale Jewish community. Services were
conducted in North Carolina.
The Rauches, married 50 years, came to South Florida from
Chicago 14 years ago, and have helped to form what today is the
efficient and effective Oceanside Division for the Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal campaign. Lee is currently the Divi-
sion campaign chairman.
Active in every endeavor of Jewish communal life, Ruth Rauch
was best known for her work on behalf of B'nai B'rith Women,
American ORT, and the National Council for Jewish Women.
Both she and Lee had the distinction of being State of Israel
Bonds Honorees this year, for their tireless work on behalf of the
Jewish Homeland.
A member of Temple Bat Yam, a special memorial service was
conducted on Aug. 14 by Rabbi Lewis Littman at the Regency
South Building.
Brian J. Sherr, Federation president, stated that "The officers
and members of the board wish to extend our profound sym-
pathies to Lee and his daughter, Judy, for the loss of their wife
and mother, and we in the community are indeed grateful that she
chose our area to make her home for we are all the better for

the House Subcommittee on Im-
migration, Refugees and Interna-

Immigrant Aid Society) expressed
support for the overall thrust of
the current legal immigration pro-

for certain changes that would
strengthen the family reunifica-

system and provide increased op-

professionals and skilled and un-

organized American Jewish com-
munity, Karl D. Zukerman, HIAS
Executive Vice President, urged
an increase of 80,000 in the
overall numbers of immigrant
"Today's immigration system
was designed to bring standards
of fairness to the admissions pro-
cess," Mr. Zukerman stated. "It
offers equal access under
equivalent criteria for potential

the few countries of the world of-

nual Fall Executive Meeting. The
weekend will include a variety of
social, religious and educational
activities. For instance, the youth

evening services at the Ramat
Shalom synagogue and will con-
duct their own creative services
on Saturday morning. And on
Saturday night they will join with
other members of the local area
for an Ice Skating Night at the

BBYO services nearly 1,400
Jewish teens through a well-
rounded program which includes a
variety of social, athletic, com-
munity service, religious and
cultural activities. In additional,
the BBYO offers Jewish teens un-

The B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization (BBYO) the oldest
and largest Jewish youth group in
the world, is proud to report on
several local youth who par-
ticipated in its highly acclaimed
International Leadership Train-
ing Conference (ILTC). The ILTC
is a three-week leadership
seminar which has been described
by some as "the finest practical
leadership program in the coun-
try." Over 200 Jewish teens from
all over the world come together
to participate in a variety of pro-
grams which are designed to
develop leadership skills which
can be used in and out of BBYO.
The ILTC is held each summer at
the B'nai B'rith's Perlman Camp
in Starlight, Pennsylvania.
Local participants in this sum-
mer's ILTC included Lawrence
Lambert, Scott Thaler, Mitch
Lazar and Mike Frieser of Planta-
tion and Lauren Horowitz and
Nadine Pollino of Coral Springs.
All currently serve as leaders at
the Chapter, Council and/or
Regional levels of BBYO.
In BBYO leaders are not merely
born; they are made. Through par-
ticipation in the ILTC, and similar
leadership programs at the local
levels, Jewish youth learn
decision-making, interpersonal
and motivational skills which they
often find useful in later life.
Locally the BBYO has chapters
throughout the North Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach areas. If
you are a Jewish teen aged 14-18
and would like to find out more
about the many opportunities
available to you in our organiza-
tion we invite you to call either
Jerry Kiewe or Billy Rubin at
581-0218 or 925-4135.
BBYO is a member of the
Federation/UJA family of Agen-
cies and beneficiaries.

Limited class size makes possible a student-teacher ratio that lends itself to the in-
dividualized attention necessary to challenge the student's development and intellectual
The three year old and four year old Pre-Kindergarten programs enroll children
who are three and four years of age by December 31. This department is staffed by
degreed faculty and aides, where necessary, to provide an appropriate student-
techer ratio. The program is developmental and provides for the social and/or learn-
ing needs of ail children at their own rate of development.
The first through fifth grade levels meet with their regular general studies and home
room teacher as well as with the Hebrew teacher for formal instruction in Hebrew
language and Bible. Each group has a specified time to cover all aspects of Judaic studies.
Emphasis is placed on reading and math skills, and these programs are individualized to
meet the needs of each child. In addition, small group instruction and discussion/explora-
tion take place in social studies and science. A "hands-on" approach is evidenced in the
curriculum implementation.
In the upper grades a greater emphasis is on academic and skill performance. In-
dividualized programs in language and math, as well as special groupings in
Hebrew, provide for individual needs of each child. The Hebrew staff works with
these groups to structure a complete Judaic program. Advances in social studies and
science are included in the large group study units. The children utilize innovative
science labs and materials at this level. At all levels a regular program of music and
physical education are scheduled in the student's day.
In August, 1982, the Hebrew Day School inaugurated their Middle School. The
Middle School offers a diversified, strong academic program in a warm, caring en-
vironment to foster positive growth during early adolescence. In addition to the
basic core subjects such as English, Match, Science and Social Studies, the course of
study includes enrichment areas in Spanish, Computers, and Creative Thinking. A
full gamut of P.E. activities complements the overall program.
The Judaic aspect of the Hebrew Day School program differentiates it from
other fine private school educations. The Hebrew Language and a full program of
Judaic-Hebraic learning experiences are integrated into the general studies pro-
gram. Children gain deep insights into the teachings of Judaism and develop an ap-
preciation of the values and ideas expressed in the modern and classical literature of
the Jewish people. A major emphasis is placed on Hebrew as it is spoken in Israel, as
well as on Israeli culture and history. Special emphasis is placed on Jewish value,
history, law and Israel. Children are prepared for their Bar-Bat Mitzvah and readily
adjust to their individual Temple's policies.
Of special note the fact that the children in grades 2-4 will have a new langage arts
program in Hebrew. Tal Sela is a Hebrew language arts curriculum which is a thematic
program integrating Jewish concepts, Hebrew literature, language and grammar. The
program will expand to the 2-5 grades next school year.
To meet the ever-increasing enrollment the Hebrew Day School of Fort Lauderdale
has embarked on a building campaign. The new facility will house classrooms, office
space, and a complete media center for both the library, audio-visual equipment and com-
puter. The new building is slated to open for the 86/87 school year. It is being designed by
noted architect, Fred Nagler.

The creed that has guided the

anything it should make us more
