BONN Plans by the ci-
ty of Frankfurt to erect a
municipal building at the
Boerneplatz, site of a
former synagogue in the
center of the old Jewish
ghetto, was protested by
scores of artists, intellec-
tuals, and local politicians.
The group, led by writer
Eva Demski, has launched a
major campaign to lobby the
city officials against any
changes that would forever
obliterate the Jewish
character of the area. Of-
ficials responsible for the
project said they would go
ahead with the plans.
asked the Spanish govern-
ment to accord it full
diplomatic status. It has
made this request ever since
Israel was granted recogni-

Although the terrorist
organization has a three-

operating almost as any
Embassy, it has never en-

Fort Laoderdale will offer to our community a 122-nnit
apartment complex to meet the constantly growing need
for homing for the elderly of North Brownrd County.
The new facility and grounds will be located in the
heart of North Broward at Nob Hill Road and 44th
Street in the City of Sunrise.
The facility will consist of a four-story mid-rise
building located on seven and one half acres of property.
The 122 one and two bedroom apartments will be com-
plemented by activity rooms, a spacious communal din-
ing area, chapel and other accoutrements which will
provide residents with an optimal living environment.
'This complex will be a great source of pride to our
Jewish community and will showcase our anility to meet
the needs of our elderly/' stated Daniel Cantor and Leo
Goodman, Elder Care Committee co-chairmen, whose
highly capable leadership spearheaded the drive for this
new facility.
In addition to the physical facilities, a LPN will be
on the premises to attend to health related problems and
a doctor will be on call. A full-time manager will also
reside on the premises. Support services and benefits in-
clude: one meal a day, weekly maid and linen services
and transportation to nearby shopping malls.

Federation Board in Profile ...
Lauderhill Leaders Elected to Key Roles
Joining the distinguished group
of North Broward County leaders
on the recently elected Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale Board of Directors
are Lauderhill residents Victor
Gruman, past president, Max
Buck and Deborah F. Hahn, board
"The Inverrary Community
representatives, prominent in
both Federation and Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign organization and planning,
play an integral part in ac-
complishing the achievements and
programs by the central function-
ing body of our Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish community,"
said Federation president Brian J.
He continued, "We all owe a
debt of gratitude to Victor
Gruman, who as one of Federa-
tion's first presidents helped to
create new programs and
stimulate continued interest in
Jewish communal involvement.
We are fortunate to have both his
leadership and guidance." Engag-
ed in every facet of Federation,
Gruman has been a founder and
leader in the campaign's Inver-
rary Hi-Greens and Major Gifts
Divisions, and is currently co-
chairman of the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies Develop-
ment committee.
Chairman of the 1985-86
Federation Communication's
Committee, Max Buck will once
again serve as chairman of the
Federation/UJA Inverrary Divi-
sion drive. Under his leadership,
the division has raised to date
$347,000 for the Jewish com-
munity's major philanthropy. He
was also instrumental in the suc-
cessful Inverrary Contemporary
Lecture program series.
Since coming to South Florida
from her native New York City
where she worked in both civic
and philanthropic endeavors,
Deborah Hahn has been a key
member of the Federation's
Women's Division, having served
in various leadership roles. She is
currently the Division's Founda-
tion vice president and her Kol
Ishah, Women's Voice regular col-
umn, an insight into Women's
happenings, appears regularly in
the Floridian.
Sherr indicated, "that the com-
munity is fairly new in the history
of Federation, but the work and
performance accomplished by the
officers, board members and exof-
ficios has brought about a new
direction for our people, striving
to serve all aspects whenever and
wherever the need arises. We
salute them all!"

Waldheim Notations: Anti-Nazi Greeks Vulnerable
Kurt Waldheim's handwritten
intelligence notations are contain-
ed in a secret war-time German
document that pinpoints the
vulnerability of anti-Nazi forces in
It is the first Nazi intelligence
document located bearing
Waldheim's own handwritten jot-
tings and directly contradicts his
repeated assertions that he never
was a German intelligence officer.
"I was not an intelligence of-
ficer," Waldheim told the Chris-
tian Science Monitor on April 17.
"I was never an intelligence of-
ficer," Waldheim told the
Jerusalem Post on July 11.)
The document found by World
Jewish Congress researchers at
the U.S. National Archives, shows
Waldheim in handwritten en-
tries modifying a secret in-
Sligence report so as to
llenge its assessment of the
strength of the Greek anti-Nazi
resistance. Waldheim asserted, in
this document for his Army's com-
mand, that the Greeks were
significantly weaker than the in-
telligence report indicated.
Dated January 18, 1944, the
document is marked "Secret Com-
mand Business" with instructions
it be coded and sent to the head-
quarters of the High Command of
the German Army in the Balkans.
At High Command Headquarters,
Waldheim received the document
and so indicated by initialing it.
At Headquarters, Waldheim
proceeded to alter the intelligence
document by adding his observa-
tions and by substantively chang-
ing its assessment of the strength
of the resistance forces facing the
German military in Greece.
Where the document stated that
the Greek resistance comprised
40,000 "fighters," Waldheim
crossed out the word and replaced
it with "men." In supplementary
remarks written at the bottom of
the page which he initialed he
stresses that Greek resistance
was leas formidable than the in-
telligence report was indicating.
In his notations, Waldheim
dismissed the document's evalua-
tion that of the 40,000 Greek
fighters only 10,000 were badly
"Strength of reserves with
40,000 men possible, but cannot
be counted on as combatants, as
weapons are lacking. Also with
Kurt Waldheim
regard to the 30,000 described...
as sufficiently armed."
In other places in the document,
Waldheim characterized certain
Greek forces as "anti-
Communist" and noted his per-
sonal agreement with some of the
intelligence assessments the
report made.
A leading expert on the war-
time history of the German Army
in Greece, Professor Hagen
Fleischer of the University of
Crete, has noted: "Waldheim was

Federation executive director
Kenneth Bierman, who said that

tually all aspects of the occupation

The WJC said that the docu-
ment "has a devastating effect on
Waldheim's credibility and shat-
ters his assertions that he was a
low-level "clerk" or "secretary"
in the forces of Nazi Germany."
(Following his election as
Austrian President Waldheim
said at his formal Vienna news
conference of June 11 he was "not
an intelligence officer" and claim-
ed he was "a sort of secretary and
nothing more.")
In releasing the document, the
WJC again called on Attorney
General Edwin Meese "to enforce
the law and place Waldheim on
the "watch list" of aliens ex-
cludable from the United States."
In April, the Justice Depart-
ment's Office of Special Investiga-
tions concluded that under
American law, Waldheim should

Federation Board Meeting Plans for '87
Working diligently on behalf of
the North Broward Jewish com-
munity, officers and directors of
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale planned a full
agenda for the new year at the
Sept. 11 board meeting held at the
Federation building on West
Oakland Park Blvd.
Brian J. Sherr, who assumed
the presidency for the second
year, announced that a number of
Federation committees have
already been completed and
chairmen have been appointed.
Other items included the organiza-
tion and planning of the '87
Federation/United Jewish Appeal
campaign, which will be under the
leadership of Federation ex-
ecutive vice president Sheldon S.
Polish, who assumes the role as
general campaign chairman.
Polish stated that his campaign
corps of volunteer workers have
already set the wheels in motion
and are working to achieve what
will be the largest funds ever rais-
ed in the history of the communi-
ty, breaking the $7 million
The Federation leaders were
reminded of the importance of the
President's Mission to Israel,
Sept. 15-28 where 28 Greater
Fort Lauderdale community
leaders will join hands with their
brethren from the U.S. and
Canada to help launch the United
Jewish Appeal campaign at
"Celebration '87," in Jerusalem.
Sherr indicated that Federation
Housing, Inc., a major Federation
agency, had completed the tran-
saction to purchase the lands for
the new 122-unit apartment com-
plex to house the elderly. The
four-story mid-rise building will be
located on seven and one-half
acres of property located at Nob
Hill Road and 44th Street in
Federation executive director
Kenneth B. Bierman told the
board members that among some
of the forthcoming major events
planned are the Major Gifts Divi-
sion Dinner to be held Saturday,
Dec. 6 at the home of Mel and
Bren Simon in Fort Lauderdale.
He emphasized that the profes-
sional and support staff are com-
pleting the clean-up of the '86
drive and working toward the

Finkelstein Leads Federation'Fast Track'
Richard Finkelstein, Federa-
tion Board member and chairman
of Leadership Development, has
announced the formation of a
Leadership Development Fast
Track program.
The Fast Track program is in-
tended to identify, recruit,
educate, place and track leader-
ship in order to meet the current
and future leadership needs of the
North Broward Jewish
Participants are currently serv-
ing in leadership positions
through standing committees of
Federation or its beneficiary
Selected to participate in this
prestigious group are: Larry
Behar, Bernie and Susan
Canarick, Richard Entin. Judah

Symons, Andrew Waldman and
David Waxman.
Also David Schulman, Jeffrey
Streitfeld, Dr. Clark Galin, Robert
Spector, Stuart Reich, Richard
Drath, Howard Gaines and Dr.
Mark Gendal.
"We designed the program with
the community's top leadership in
mind," stated Finkelstein. "Many
times, due to the shortage of
quality leaders, individuals are
thrust into leadership roles when
they may not be ready or fully
understand the process. This pro-
gram gives our current and future
leaders an opportunity to sharpen
their leadership abilities as they
are learning new ones."
National figures are being
brought down to Fort Lauderdale
to act as workshop instructors for
the Fast Track program. Schedul-
ed are Dr. Joseph Cohen, Dr. Ellis
Rivkin, Joel Berkowitz, Jack
Dauber, Michael Pelavin and Ber-
nard Olshansky. The Fast Track
program will conclude with a
Young Leadership Retreat
sometime in the Spring.
A SENSITIVE new technique for detecting radioactivity in
rain water has been developed by Hebrew University and Weiz-
mann Institute scientists. Tests using the technique show that
radioactive iodine in rainfall rose 30 times more in West Germany
following the Chernobyl nuclear disaster than it did in Israel.
A SCIENTIFIC breakthrough that can save the lives of
millions of people who are affected each year with malaria has
been developed by the Lautenberg Center for General and Tumor
Immunology, Hebrew University, Hadaanh Medical School in
Jerusalem. A by-product of the Center's ongoing cancer research,
the discovery provides a rapid, simple, sensitive immunologies!
diagnostic test that identifies carriers of the disease. It was
developed by Prof. Dov Sulitzeanu and his team.
ISRAEL ENDED the first year of its economic austerity pro-
gram with an inflation rate of 57.7 percent, the lowest for any
single year since 1976.
ISRAEL WILL resume diplomatic ties with Poland and
Hungary before such ties are formed with the Soviet Union, ac-
cording to political sources. The sources noted that ties with
Poland at the lowest diplomatic level of "interest sections" in
Warsaw and Tel Aviv are expected to be established followed
by similar relations with Hungary.

Brian J. Sherr and general campaign chairman
Sheldon S. Polish, the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale officers, directors and campaign
cabinet have issued the following statement.
"The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauder-

paign months of November through January which
will be on a weekly schedule.
In addition, the paper will now be mailed to those
persons or organizations which contribute a minimum

Jewish Appeal annual campaign. We know that you
can appreciate the need for these changes which have
been necessitated by the rapid growth of our com-
munity's needs and our agencies and beneficiaries
legitimate demands for funds to which we must res-
pond. We shall continue to provide this community
with a professional newspaper, complete with local,
national and world news of an informative and in-
teresting matter. What we must never forget is our
first and ultimate responsibility, and that is to main-
tain the vital social welfare and humanitarian pro-
grams here in our 22 community area known as North
Broward County, in Israel and in 33 other lands."

The Iran-Iraq War: The View From Israel
The war in the Persian Gulf,
needless to say, is being closely
followed by Israel. Both of the two
countries involved are declared
enemies of Israel, although each
has attained that dubious distinc-
tion in its own way and has a dif-
ferent record on this issue. The
war has caused a split among the
Arab states, demonstrating once
again that Arab unity is a myth,
even when the inviolability of
"sacred" Arab territory is at
stake. The war is now in its sixth
year, and it will overtake World
War II.
Iraq Attacks Khomeini's Iran
The Iraqi attack, which started
the war in September, 1980, was
preceded by a cataclysmic change
in Iran. The ouster of the Shah,
and the destruction of his regime
by the "Islamic Revolution,"
resulted in the disarray of Iran's
armed forces; and, if that did not
make the country vulnerable
enough to outside aggression,
Iran also ruined its ties with the
United States, which had been
Iran's most important interna-
tional prop and, in practical if not
in formal terms, the guarantor of
its external security. By its violent
anti-American propaganda and by
such actions as permitting U.S.
diplomatic personnel to be held
hostage, Iran also foreclosed, for
the forseeable future, the chances
of reconstructing its relationship
with the great Western power. On
a much smaller but not negligible
scale, the Khomeini regime went
out of its way to put an abrupt end
to the ties that Iran had developed
with Israel.
It was this radical transforma-
tion in Iran's political and military
situation which sparked off the
Iraqi attack. Long before the
Islamic Revolution, Iraq had been
feuding with Iran; there were ter-
ritorial disputes, primarily over
the right to Shatt-el-Arab, the
strategic waterway between the
two countries, and Iran had for
years been supporting, more or
less openly, an ongoing rebellion
against Iraq by the Kurdish
minority in that country. That
support had come to an end by the
1975 "Algiers agreement," but in
exchange Iraq had had to re-
nounce its territorial claims on
Iran. The differences, however,
had not led to war not until Iran
had weakened its defenses and
abandoned its external support
for the sake of its Revolution. This
apparently seemed to Iraq to be a
golden opportunity, which it
thought it should not miss. It
acted on the assumption that it
would defeat Iran by a lightning
campaign and, after victory over
its non-Arab neighbor, annex the
oil-rich Khuzistan region and then
be able to embark upon the
realization of its bold ambitions in
the Arab world.
Led Drive Against Egypt-
Israel Peace
In the period that preceded the
attack on Iran, Iraq was in the
forefront of the drive against the
Camp David Accords and the
peace agreement that Egypt the
leading Arab country and the one
that barred the way to Iraq's am-
bitions had concluded with

its complicity. Abu Nidal onslaught of the Arab contries -
Yehoahna Trigor
Israel. It was in Baghdad that the
Arab leaders met to devise ways
and means of punishing Egypt for
having broken ranks, and of mak-
ing sure that the other "confron-
tation states" would not follow
Egypt's example.
Relentless hostility to Israel had
long been an integral part of
Iraq's policy. It had its roots in the
traditional Moslem discrimination
of Jews and also perhaps more
than in any other Arab country
in modern anti-Semitism. In
World War II, during the 1941
pro-Nazi Rashid Ali revolt, Iraq
then moved to Syria, considering
it a safer haven, but Iraq still has
other terrorist groups at its com-
mand, and Baghdad has become
an alternate base for Arafat's
PLO terrorists. In the political
warfare against Israel, Iraq was
second to none and, as long as it
could afford it (i.e. before its
finances were devoured by the
war with Iran), it spent large
amounts of money especially in
Africa to undermine Israel's
relations with the Third World.
But the biggest threat by far
was the nuclear reactor that Iraq
was building as a further and in-
finitely more dangerous extension
of its aggressive policies. As early
as September, 1975, Saddam Hus-
sein had stated that the acquisi-
tion of nuclear technology by his
country was the first Arab at-
tempt towards nuclear ar-

was the scene of widespread
pogroms. Seven years later, in
1948, even before the State of
Israel was declared, Iraq was
among the first to send
"volunteers" to what was then
still Mandatory Palestine, to fight
the Jewish population there.
Later on, regular Iraqi forces join-
ed in the war against the nascent
state. Iraq again took part in wars
against Israel in 1967 and 1973.
But while Egypt has made peace
with Israel, and Jordan, Syria and
Lebanon have various contractual
obligations to refrain from ag-
gression against Israel (which,
needless to say, they have often
breached), Iraq does not have any
such constraints; not having any
joint border with Israel, it was
able to get away without signing
any ceasefire or armistice agree-
ment and remains uncommitted,
even in formal terms, to desist
from a repetition of its earlier
Iraq has been deeply involved in
anti-Israel terror, both by spon-
soring terrorist acts of its own
and by harboring and supporting
Palestinian terrorist organiza-
tions on its soil. Abu Nidal, the
most notorious Palestinian ter-
rorist, was baaed in Iraq up until
two years ago and conducted his
operations from there, at the Iraqi
government's behest or at least

the reactor.) At the time there
was a great outcry, but there can
be little doubt that Middle East
and Persian Gulf countries in-
cluding Iran are breathing
easier in the knowledge that,
thanks to Israel's action, Iraq has
still not achieved nuclear capabili-
ty. Iraq's inclination to employ un-
conventional weapons has since
been amply demonstrated by its
wide and repeated use of chemical
weapons in the fighting against
Where Iran Differed
Iran is a different story
altogether. It did not support the
establishment of the State of
Israel, but neither did it join the
Arab boycott and it extended de
facto recognition to Israel. It did
not take long for the two coun-
tries to discover the interests they
had in common. For Israel,
reaching out over the wall of isola-
tion that the Arab states had
sought to raise around it in the
region, was in itself an important
breakthrough, with strategic im-
plications and potential political
and economic advantages. Direct
oil supplies from Iran to Israel
became feasible after the 1956
Sinai campaign, which opened the
Tiran Straits and established a sea
link between the two countries.
Iran was also interested in the
establishment of practical ties
with Israel: Israel enjoyed a high
scientific and technological stan-
dard, and the experience of rapid
development of human and
material resources, which it was
only too willing to share with
developing countries. Israel also
had an impressive military
capability, which had enabled it to
stand up to the combined
including Iraq, with which Iran
even then had an adversary rela-
tionship. The result was that the
two countries established close
and mutually beneficial ties of
The Jewish Community
Israel also had a profound in-
terest in the Jewish community in
Iran. Under the Pahlevi dynasty,
i.e. since 1925, the situation of the
Jews of Iran had changed for the
better. Ever since the 16th cen-
tury, when Persia had re-
established its national and
political identity and the Safawid
dynasty had made Shi'ite Islam
the state religion, the Jews of Iran
had had a status that was inferior
even to second-class citizenship
they had in the Arab countries;
the all-powerful Shi'ite clergy
made the ritual "uncleanliness" of
the Jews the cornerstone of the
state's policy on the Jews and, as
late as the 19th century, Iranian
Jews were subjected to forced
conversion to Islam and many had
to live as Marranos (like Jews in
Spain and Portugal under the In-
quisition). There was some im-
provement in the status of the
Jews in the early years of the 20th
century, but it was only when
Reza Khan came to power and em-
barked upon secularization that
the power of the Shi'ite clergy
was severely circumscribed and,
as a by-product, the situation of
the Jews underwent a basic im-
provement. The trend towards
modernization grew apace under
the second Pahlevi Shah, especial-
ly in the period following the
Mossadegh interlude. The Shi'ite
clergy, for the most part, strongly
disapproved of the Shah's policies
and eventually became the prin-
cipal channel of opposition to the
Khomeini's Teachings
Foremost among the Shi'ite
clergy in the opposition to the
Shah was the Ayatollah Ruhallah
Khomeini, whose teachings
became the source from which the
"Islamic Revolution" drew its in-
spiration and who, since 1979, has
been Iran's supreme political and
religious authority. The doctrine
that Khomeini propagated (for
decades, first in Iran and later
from his place of exile in Iraq and,
in the final stage, from Paris),
calls for the transformation of
Iran (and, in principle, of all
Muslim states) into theocracy in
which the clergy controls every
sphere of life and rules the coun-
try in accordance with Islamic
law. In his religious teachings, as
well as in the campaign that Kho-
meini conducted against the Shah,
the Jews and Israel play an ex-
traordinary role. Khomeini's
blueprint for Islamic government
(as elaborated in a series of lec-
tures that he gave in Majaf, his
place of exile, in early 1970), con-
tains remarks that are reminis-
cent of the notorious "Protocols
of the Elders of Zion." The follow-
ing are some examples (quoted
from "Islam and Revolution:
Writings and Declarations of Im-
am Khomeini," Mizan Press,
Berkeley, 1981):
"From the very beginning,
the historical movement of Islam
has had to contend with the Jews,
for it was they who first establish-
ed anti-Islamic propaganda and
engaged in various strategems
and, as you can see, this activity
continues even to the present...
"We must protest and make the
whole people aware that the Jews
and their foreign backers are op-
posed to the very foundations of
Islam and wish to establish Jewish
domination throughout the world.
I fear that they may one day
achieve their goal and that the
Xthy shown by some of us may
w a Jew to rule over us one
On the list of crimes which
Khomeini accused the Shah,
cooperation with Israel was near
the top:
"Israel, the universally
recognized enemy of Islam and
the Muslims, at war with the
Muslim peoples for years, has,
with the assistance of the
despicable government of Iran,
penetrated all the economic,
military and political affairs of the
country: it must be said that Iran
has become a military base for
Israel, which means, by extension,
for America."
Ten years later, by which time
Khomeini had come to power, his
obsession with Israel was as
strong as ever. In a review of the
problems and dangers faced by
the new Iran (on the occasion of
the Iranian New Year, March 21,
1980), Khomeini has this to say:
"We are at war with interna-
tional communism no less than we
are struggling against the global
plunderers of the West headed by
America, Zionism and Israel."
Khomeini has also been talking
about spearheading an Islamic
campaign against Israel; since the
beginning of the war, he has been
denouncing Iraq as an "obstacle
on the road to Jerusalem," Even
now, Iran is approaching confron-
tation with Israel by using the
radical Lebanese-Shi' ite "Hiz-
bollah" group for anti-Israel ter-
rorist activities.
As for the situation of Iran's
Jews under Khomeini, those who
have remained have been reduced
to the traditional Islamic status of
second-class citizens. But there
have been relatively few physical
excesses against the Jews,
perhaps because the same Islamic
tradition also demands that as the
"People of the Book" the Jews
have to be protected.
At the present time, interna-
tional attention once again
focuses on the Gulf War, as a
result of the gains that Iran has
made in its latest offensive. The
Security Council has met and has
passed a resolution that calls for
an end to the fighting and, for the
first time, also "deplores the in-
itial act which gave rise to the con-
flict" in effect, a censure of
Iraq. This is not good enough for
Iran, which insists on interna-
tional condemnation of Iraq as the
aggressor (as one of its conditions
for ending the fighting), but it is a
sign of the growing concern that
continuation of the war may lead
to an outcome that hardly anyone
wants a decisive victory by one
of the contending parties.
Israel has no interest in an Ira-
nian triumph over Iraq or vice
versa. What Israel hopes for is
that once the fighting comes to an
end, Iran and Iraq, chastened by
their tremendous losses, would
devote themselves to the
reconstruction of their shattered
economy and abandon their
hostility to Israel.
The exigencies of war have ex-
acerbated Iraq's feud with Syria,
and caused a rift between it and
Libya. These two countries, like
Iraq, had been in the forefront of
the Arab opposition to a
negotiated Middle East settle
ment, but in the Gulf War they
lend their support to Iran. The
same exigencies have induced
Iraq to draw closer to Egypt and
Jordan, even though Egypt is at
peace with Israel and Jordan is
committed to peace negotiations,
at least in principle. Iraq has ton-
ed down its public statements on
Middle East peace negotiations
and is now "prepared to accept
any peace plan mat the Palesti-
nians agree to." This sounds bet-
ter than what has been Iraq's
traditional position, the "destruc-

Memories From '66 to '86...
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Editor Note: The following in-
formtUion is compiled with the
help of Federation's first presi-
dent, Ludwik Brodzki.
"We hear You, Israel!" The
words sounded across Greater
Fort Lauderdale in the seventies.
The Jewish Federation of North
Broward had come of age. Now
housed in the new offices head-
quartered at 3905 N. Andrews
Avenue in Fort Lauderdale,
Federation had a full time ex-
ecutive director. Leon Goldberg
worked closely with national UJA
offices and local beneficiaries and
agencies to bring about a cohesive
and structured professional opera-
tion, serving the steadily growing
Jewish community and thair
FLASH ... The 1970 Federa-
tion campaign was off to a
phenomenal start. The Initial
Gifts Dinner participants pledged
$97,000 toward the $200,000 goal.
And so the words emblazoned the
pages of Fort Lauderdale's media
as the Federation now entered
their third year of operation.
And the national and prominent
speakers began to address our
community. Among them Israeli
war hero General Y. Gaviah, Am-
bassador Rehaveam Amir and
Arieh Plotkin.
And the women were on their
way. Under the leadership of Mrs.
Oscar (Fran) Sindell and Mrs.
Alvin (Evelyn) Gross, two cam-
paign events for "Plus Giving"
were held the community wide
luncheon at the Statler Hilton
featuring Dr. Ruth Gruber and
the Pace Setters $100 Champagne
Brunch at the Gross home on Nor-
theast 55th St.
Committed to the needs of their
brethren, the area spiritual
leaders issued a Proclamation call-
ing for congregant support.
Under the direction of Federation
Rabbinical Advisory Board Of-
ficers, Rabbi Arthur Abrams,
Sheldon B. Edwards, Richard
Leviton and Morris A. Skop, the
congregations united in their sup-
port for UJA.
The corps of professionals
began to grow as more and more
businessmen joined the ranks.

The sun is shining brightly on a
beautiful Florida Monday morn-
ing. Mary, Be&sie, and Minnie,
will begin to spend another busy
and eventful day. Today they may
learn fractions before they discuss
world events. Taking part in the
exercise group helps loosen the
muscles, so one may dance and
perhaps sing and play the har-
monica. They all will certainly
take pleasure in the companion-
ship of good friends.
These are three of the women at
"The Gathering Place," the Adult
Day Care Center, held at the
Jewish Community Center on
Sunrise Blvd. Several mornings a
week they come here to learn, to
play, and to enjoy their days. It is
one of the most interesting and
worthwhile of the programs fund-
ed by our Greater Fort Lauder-
dale Federation.
Their individual stories began
many years ago ... She arrived
on the shores of the "Goldena
Medina" at the age of 17. Mary
Nerensky and her sister came to
join a brother who was living in
New York. Their brother had run
away from the Russian army con-
scription several years earlier.
Soon after becoming established,
he sent for his sisters. Today at
the age of 90. Mary describes her
introduction to America like this,
"You don't know half of it Since
then I would never go on a boat.
Oh, the boats now are different,
but I still wouldn't go on a boat It
took two weeks. We left Russia by
train, stopped in London, and got
on the boat You had to have a
'schiffskart' (ship's card or ticket).
It was a big shlep. On the boat,
you were laying downstairs in the
steerage for days. Everyone was
sick. It was terrible. Young people
today don't know what Jewish
women went through. They look
at Grandma and only see today.
People don't know that I took five
cents for the day and would buy
apples and still have two cents left
for the evening. I worked making
children's clothes and went to
night school on Rivington Street.
When I came home my sister-in-
law put me to wash her clothes...
and not like they have now, with a
machine. There was a girl
upstairs, who would come down
when the fruit man would come. A
melon cost two cents. We would
each give a penny and share the
cantaloupe. What a nice thing.
Now you see these rich people, no
one ever suffers here. I worked
for three dollars a week and they
fired me because I wasn't making
enough merchandise. I had to find
other work."
"Hard work didn't destroy
anyone," interrupted Minnie Har-
ris, "It didn't make me sick. Now
I'm 94. She was lucky, when my
parents came over they were 90
days on the water. I don't know
why it took that long. They came
over in 1884 from England, two
years before the Statue of Liber-
ty. We were all born here, 18
brothers and sisters. My father
ran away from Russia, they also
wanted him in the army. Then he
went to England where he met my
mother, who had gone there from
Germany. They were religious,
they kept a kosher home, but we
never spoke Yiddish. We wanted
my mother to learn English."
"I've had a very nice life, and a
happy life. I'm only in Florida a
short while. I came from Brooklyn
with my daughter," interjected 87
years old Bessie Leiberman.
taxpayers two dollars later on."
Certainly the enthusiasm of
Director Bonnie Krauss and her
many years of work with the
senior population contributes to
the success of this project. Bonnie
is sure that it is the good spirit and
vitality of those who participate in
the program that keep her feeling
fit and looking forward to each
new day with them. It is a belief
that is shared by the Gathering
Place's wonderfully competent
f staff, including Marjorie Reibel
and Belle Weiner. Although many
of the people attending the pro-
gram are brought there by their
adult children or other family
members, an excellent crew of
drivers escort people to and from
the center each day. This program
is completely funded by the
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale and is open to anyone
over the age of 60 without fee. It
is attended by people who might
otherwise be homebound. As Min-
nie Harris said "I don't have to be
a burden to anyone, here I can
have a wonderful time and I don't
have to sit alone." Bessie Lieber-
man, who lives with her daughter
and son-in-law, was grateful for
the sense of independence that
coming to the Gathering Place
gives her. She sang a song for us
expressing how she felt.
This coming fall our Women's
Division will conduct a very
special "mini-mission" to the
Gathering Place so that we can all
have the opportunity to find out
what "living happily ever after" is
really all about.

see all the people come out to see

agencies," Behar stated.
Addressing the crowd were JCC
president, David Schulman,

Marc Schwartz and Day School

spoke about the programs and ser-
vices offered by their agencies for
people of all ages.
"That's where I learned how to
play the harmonica, now I play it
here in the lunch room and they all
sing. I even taught a class in
Brooklyn to play the harmonica. I
love it here at the Gathering
Place, the teachers are the best.
Everyone is just wonderful. It's so
important for us to have this
place. We do exercises. Our peo-
ple would never go out of the
house if they did not have this
place. You don't want to be a shut-
in. We have bingo, we have

In the morning we have exercise,
and we have a wonderful teacher.
We are back to school. Especially
when we discuss what's going on
in the newspapers. I appreciate
every minute that I'm here. I
made myself right at home here.
These are fine people, everyone of
them are fine people."
One of the most remarkable
things about a visit to the Gather-
ing Place is the spirit one finds.
The day I was there everyone was
learning fractions in a class in
Math. One women said "I never
had the opportunity to learn frac-
tions before, isn't it wonderful
that I can now." Each morning a
teacher from the Broward County
School Board, Eileen Martin, con-
ducts classes in Basic Adult
Education. Her eager students
learn English, History Math, and
Science among other subjects.
Eileen has said they are both the
best students and the best
teachers she has ever had. She has
learned much from her students.
After spending time at the books,
the group participates in an exer-
cise class geared to each person's
abilities. I was amazed at the agili-
ty of these senior citizens. Healthy
people of any age should not stay
at home alone all day. The Gather-

tion of the Zionist entity," but is a
long way off from indicating any
substantive change. To judge by
past experience, even the most
profound differences with Syria
would not prevent Iraq from join-
ing any Syrian-launched aggres-
sion against Israel. It will take
more than some vague statements
by Iraqi leaders made at a time
when they were seeking arms aid
from the United States for
Israel to cease regarding Iraq as a
threat to its security.
As regards Iran, the great
danger is the "export of the
Revolution"; Khomeini's concept
of Islamic government is not con-
fined to Iran, and what he seeks is
the further spread of his brand of
Shi'ism. Lebanon, with its large
Shi'ite community and the prevail-
ing chaotic conditions, may be the
leading candidate to become the
next "Islamic Republic," but all
the Arab states are in line as far
as Khomeini is concerned. By
their constant preoccupation with
hostility to Israel, the Arab states
may well have reduced their
capability of offering resistance to
Khomeini's uncompromising fun-
damentalist Islamic message with
its built-in emphasis on anti-
Jewish and anti-Zionist elements.
For Israel, there is no threat of
ideological subversion by Ifan, but
it has to be on guard against Ira-
nian or Iranian-inspired ter-
rorism. This is the kind of threat
that Israel has shown itself
capable of dealing with effective-
ly. Israel has no quarrel with the
Iranian people, and when condi-
tions change it will be only too
willing to restore normal relations
with it.

Working as Division co-

our Jewish community's major
philanthropy. We are happy to

coming effort, and know that once

RECENTLY RELEASED Kurt Waldheim identified in a
Nazi Student Union parade in Vienna in 1938 being escorted by
Hitler'8 brownshirted Stormtroopers. Waldheim is identified in
the front line of the Nazi students. Documents from Austrian
Foreign Ministry and court archives explicitly naming
Waldheim show Waldheim to have been a member of three Nazi
organizations, including the Student Union and the Storm-
troopers. According to these previously released documents,
Waldheim became a member of the Nazi Student Union on April
1,1938 and a member of the Nazi Stormtroopers on November 18,

New Director of CJF
Israel Office Announced
Carmi Schwartz, executive vice
president of the Council of Jewish
Federations, has announced the
appointment of Stephen G. Don-
shik as Director General of CJF's
Israel Office. Dr. Donshik will
replace Martin S. Kraar, who
leaves to become executive vice
president of the Jewish Welfare
Federation of Detroit.
The Israel Office of CJF was
reopened in 1985 after a hiatus of
13 years. The goal of the Office is
to serve the needs of the Jewish
Federations of North America in
relation to Israel, arranging for
exchange programs in human ser-
vices, screening Israeli schlichim
to American communities and
other such functions. The Office
also serves to keep Key Israelis
more informed and aware of the
agenda of the North American
Jewish Federation movement,
thus improving the effectiveness
of dialogue and cooperation bet-
ween the two communities.
"The CJF office in Israel has
enhanced the relationship bet-
ween North American Jewish
Federations and Israel and fulfills
specific program functions for
CJF member Federations,"
Schwartz said.
Dr. Donshik comes to his new
post directly from the United
Israel Appeal office in Jerusalem,
where he was Director of Pro-
gram Evaluation. From 1980 to
1988, he served as Executive
Director of the Jewish Family
Service of New Haven, CT.

Center Recovers Lost
Treasure of Yiddish Music
Workers from the National Yid-

Massachusetts have recovered a
treasure-trove of almost 85,000
folios of out-of-print Jewish music
from a garage in Boro Park,
Brooklyn, it was announced. The
collection, which includes long
out-of-print "hits" from Yiddish
theatre, songs of the Jewish
pioneers of Israel, Yiddish
folksongs and cantorial scores, is
believed to represent the largest
single inventory of Yiddish music
anywhere in the world.
The Center has announced plans
to distribute thousands of
duplicate copies of sheet music at
nominal cost to libraries, univer-
sities and the general public. A
complete, annotated catalogue
will be available, free of charge, in
early November. For further in-
formation please write: Paula Par-
sky, Bibliographer, National Yid-
dish Book Center, Old East Street
School, Amherst, MA 01004.
It is a fascinating and at times
frightening journey through
the political, economic and social
life of Israel. Gerald Kaufman, a
regular visitor to the country for
many years, draws on his long ex-
perience and knowledge of life
and politics there to discover the
reasons behind Israel's dramatic
fall from grace.
The author meets senior politi-
cians, generals, academics and or-
dinary citizens. He confronts the
extremist Rabbi Kahane. He visits
a fundamentalist Jewish settle-
ment on the West Bank and a
nearby Arab village. He examines
the predicament and power
of the disadvantaged Sephardi
Jews who now form a majority of
Israel's population and electorate.
He investigates the Jewish ter-
rorist underground and goes on a
hazardous expedition to the
Lebanon battle-front.
Gerald Kaufman finds that a
combination of religious
fanaticism and assertive na-
tionalism is sapping Israel's tradi-
tional liberal values. Democrats
are having to fight hard against a
disturbingly potent doctrine
which he labels 'the Maimonides
manifesto' a mixture of prac-
tical policies and visionary
religious principles.

Jewish Values in Bioethics
Community Mourns
Rabbi David J. Matzner
Foreword by Harold Jeremy C.
Swan, MD, PhD
In this insightful volume, the
dilemmas posed by medical ethics
are thoroughly explored by the
leading physicians, clinicians,
ethicists, and clergy of our time.
Edited by a noted rab-
bi/psychotherapist, these essays
integrate the advances of modern
medicine with the wisdom of
traditional Jewish ethics and
scholarship. Through case vignet-
tes, philosophical and
psychological theories, and per-
sonal experiences human suf-
fering, the special cohort genera-
tion of the Holocaust patient, pro-
longing 'life or the dying process,'
risks vs. benefits in treating the
gravely ill patient, acute and
chronic senility, and the indignity
of death with dignity are ex-
amined. Nowhere are ethical
dilemmas involving quality of life
with respect to death and dying
more thoroughly discussed.
Significant issues discussed in-
clude application of Jewish
medical ethics in contemporary
medical situations and presenta-
tion of actual guidelines to assist
physicians, clinicians and clergy in
rendering decisions. The pros and
cons of advances in cardiology,
transplant surgery and cancer
treatment as they relate to morali-
ty, euthanasia and religion are
compared. Physicians,
bioethicists, attorneys, rabbis,
and mental health professionals,
as well as the lay person will find
guidance in the moral, ethical, and.
legal dilemmas discussed in this
UNIVERSITY CENTER for the Performing Arts has received
funding designated for scholarships to male students wishing to

EXACTLY THREE months after the U.S. Center for Disease
Control (CDC) halted all mandatory health inspections of cruise
ships, Congressman Larry Smith (D-Fla.) has succeeded in ensur-
ing that the CDC continue the inspections.
THE U.S. House has approved purchase of sophisticated, low-
level wind-shear detection systems for 15 U.S. airports, including
the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area, Congressman Clay Shaw an-
nounced. Congress approved HR 5205, which contains a provision
for $88 million to purchase the systems, known as NEXRAD. The
NEXRAD systems will be used until Doppler weather systems
can be developed and installed.
A PUBLIC opinion poll shows that local residents by almost
two to one favor paying a toll rather than delaying for several
years the complete six-lane widening of U.S. 441.

Mrs. Mattie Sheseley, a resident at The Lafayette, Forum Group's

or taxes. When I pay my rent, I've paid almost all my expenses. I have
a beautiful apartment, and new friends to talk to, and play bridge with
