Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
On the threshhold of the New Year 5747,1 would like to convey to you
sincere good wishes from the officers, board of directors and staff of the
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
We in North Broward County have much to be thankful for we
have grown from a group of some 300 men and women in East Fort
Lauderdale, to an area composed of 22 communities and more than
150,000 Jewish men, women and children. Indeed we have come a long
way, and we can count our blessings. But what about our brethren in
Israel, especially the Ethiopian Jews we helped to bring to our Jewish
Homeland, or in the distressed neighborhoods where current economic
strains are creating hardships For many families. And yes, the
thousands of our fellow men who live in oppression, longing for the safe-
ty and freedom of a land of Peace.
5747 is a year to be met with determination and intelligence and with
gratitude for what has been achieved in the 40 years since the new post-
Nazi chapter of World and Jewish History opened. We must be deter-
mined to make this a better world for all. For the young and elderly,
here in South Florida, in Israel and elsewhere overseas, and we must
continue to strengthen Jewish education and activity in our own com-
munities so that Jewish life and values will flourish and endure through
succeeding generations.
Our heartfelt support and generosity has been indeed gratifying, and
we should all stand proud and tall for all of the achievements and ac-
complishments made possible because of those dollars. We are all touch-
ed by the child learning about his heritage in the Jewish tradition; the
elderly couple enjoying the camaraderie and companionship at the
kosher luncheon meal, or reading of the tens of thousands of the sons
and daughters of Israel whose lives are made brighter and happier
because someone cares. We and we alone make the difference.
At this special time of the High Holidays, let us all give gratitude for
the bounty of our lives and take pride in our good work, but must never
forget from whence we came.
All of us at Federation wish you and those you love, L'Shanah Tovah!
May we all grow from strength to strength!

Written in the Book of Life
Rabbi Elliot Skiddell, president
North Broward Board of Rabbis
When Abraham interceded with God to save Sodom
and Gomorrah from destruction, he used the expression,
"Far be it from Thee." The sages (Genesis Rabbah 49:9)
caught the true spirit of that expression when they added
in comment of it: "It means," they say, "that to act unjust-
ly is alien to God." They thereby indicated that the
character of God is necessarily conceived as inherently con-
sistent, integrated. Transferring this attribute of God to
human character, we should say that, if human character is
to reflect the Divine, it must be integrated and self-
consistent. This involves a working synthesis of individual
self expression and social cooperation. Such a synthesis is,
therefore, evidence of atonement won and the fruit of ef-
fective repentance. (The Meaning of God in Modern Jewish
Religion, Mordecai M. Kaplan, Reconstructionist Press,
NY, 1962, pp. 181-182)
The High Holy Days are a time of deep reflection and in-
trospection. This time of year always seems to awaken in
the heart of each Jew a yearning to be part of the Jewish
community. The High Holidays also cause each of us to
strive for wholeness in our own lives. Rather than being
mutually exclusive, these two desires are actually inex-
tricably intertwined for it is impossible for an individual
Jew to become self-integrated or self-fulfilled without being
part of a Jewish community. The sense of belonging to a
community and being surrounded by other Jews who are
engaged in a similar search for self fulfillment gives
strengh and support to all who are seeking to better
themselves as human beings and as Jews.
There is no need for any Jew to be detached from the
community on the holidays for every synagogue stands
ready to be warm and welcoming to any and every Jew who
approaches us. Anyone who truly cannot afford the cost of
tickets for the High Holidays services will not be turned
away. The necessity of imposing a fee and requiring tickets
for High Holiday worship is self evident to anyone who
thinks about it, for without taxing the vast majority of Jews
who do not support the synagogues throughout the year,
the synagogues in our community would not be able to
function and would not be there when needed by our com-
munity. If the almost 90 percent of the Jews in Greater
Fort Lauderdale who do not belong to synagogues but only
purchase High Holiday tickets would join a synagogue and
make the commitment to ongoing support of the communi-
ty, then we would be able to do away with the practice of
selling High Holiday tickets. But since, realistically, this
scenario will not come to pass, we must continue to sell
tickets for High Holiday services in order to support the im-
portant work that the synagogues do throughout the year.
In Judaism we are enjoined, by the concept of Tikkun
Olam, repair of the world, to try our best, each one of us, to
make this world a better place for all our people. We realize
that the world is not perfect, but we believe that it is
perfectible if we all work together to improve the world
beginning with ourselves. This is, at least in part, the
message of Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.
In our search for perfection of the world, we are acting
in accordance with "God's plan" which, as I understand it,
is for us to act as God's partners in completing or perfec-
ting the work of creation by doing Godly activities (Mitz-
vot). In the words of Rabbi Mordeccai M. Kaplan, Zichrono
LiVracha, "Repentance is the continuous effort of man to
make himself what he is destined to become." (Judaism
Without Supernaturalism, Mordecai M. Kaplan,
Reconstructionist Press, NY, 1967, p. 106).
As the New Year begins, let us resolve to not remain
apart from the con^munity. We are ready to welcome you;
please join us. And together we will build our Jewish com-
munity, support one another and make ourselves what we
are destined to become. May we all write ourselves in the
Book of Life for the coming year.
Commitment, it's what
makes us Jews. That's
why we're beside you
when you need us
most. After all, Our
Real Involvement is
with the Living.

From the Federation to Our Bereaved Brethren .
Our Solidarity Will Never Waiver
Editor's Note: The following message was sent to
North Broward County synagogues and congregations call-
ing on all Rabbis and spiritual leaders to reflect the feelings
of the Federation by joining in a simultaneous reading of
this statement at their services.
The senseless and dastardly attack of our Jewish
brethren attending Sabbath services at Neve Shalom
Synagogue in Istanbul, Turkey, has devastated the entire
Jewish community. We in North Broward County join
together with all peace loving people throughout the world
to extend our heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the
families and friends of those innocent victims of terrorism.
As the central organization for the Jewish community
in Greater Fort Lauderdale, we at the Jewish Federation
are calling for a 'show of solidarity,' and asking all of the
men, women and children throughout the County to attend
the services of their choice on the High Holidays, ir-
regardless of denomination or affiliation, and show your
heartfelt support. It is up to us as Jews, Americans and
freedom loving people, to stand up and be counted, and not
to allow this heinous crime fade away into silence.
Both the Turkish slaughter and the Pakistanian plane
attacks appall the very sense of our beings and no matter
the race, creed or color, our heart reaches out to them all.
For these crimes are against everything we stand for
regardless of religion, race or nationality.
From the Federation family to the bereaved, we say to
you our solidarity will never waiver. And we will never

DESTRUCTION: A torn prayer book on the lectern of Neve
Shalom synagogue in Istanbul, Turkey.
From the Turkish Embassy ... Washington D.C.
September 6, 1986
This morning a barbaric and despicable aggression was
perpetrated against the congregation of the Neve Shalom
Synagogue in Istanbul, Turkey. More than 20 people lost their
lives, and there are many wounded.
The preliminary information reaching us indicated that two
terrorists gained entrance to the Synagogue under the guise of
being photographers and threw bombs at the worshippers
gathered there. The attackers themselves were killed by the
explosions. According to the semi-official Turkish Anatolian
News Agency, a terrorist organization calling itself the "Islamic
Resistance Front" made a declaration in Beirut to the effect that
they are responsible for the bombing and they have done it to
avenge Israel's occupation of Lebanon.
The Turkish Government promptly convened an extraordinary
meeting headed by Prime Minister Oral, and issued a declaration
vigorously condemning the wanton attack, vowed to take all
necessary measures to identify and apprehend the culprits, and
reiterated its conviction that the events which occurred yesterday
in Pakistan and today in Turkey have demonstrated, once again,
all countries must act as one in order to fight international
terrorism effectively.
Reports from the cities throughout Turkey confirm this
cowardly attack on Jewish Turks has saddened and infuriated the
whole Turkish nation.
People of the Jewish faith fleeing persecution and oppression
elsewhere have for the last five centuries found a haven of
welcome and tolerance in Turkey. During the darkest periods of
Jewish history, Turkey has opened its arms to Jews irrespective
of their place of origin when doors elsewhere were closed to them.
Jewish Turks, no less than Turks of any other faith, are integral
members of the Turkish nation. The terrorists should know that
all citizens of Turkey are determined to bring them to justice.

Welcoming the New Jewish Year 5747
The liturgical feature of Rosh
Hashana is the sounding of the
shofar. In the Torah, the first day
of the seventh month is declared a
holiday, a "Yom Teruak," "a day
of blowing (or: sounding the
horn)." But what is the symbolism
or meaning of the blowing? And
why on this day? The Torah gives
no explanation.
The shofar, by tradition, is a
curved musical instrument,
generally made from a ram's horn
although the horn of a goat,
antelope or gazelle is also permit-
ted. The shofar is one of the oldest
musical instruments in human
history which is still in use. Blow-
ing the shofar predates Judaism.
It is believed that pre-Biblical use
focused on the "magical" power
of the horn. In ancient times, peo-
ple believed that blasts from a
horn could drive away demons. It
is striking that this association is
picked up by the Talmud which
suggests that the shofar can drive
away Satan and evil spirits.
Hence, on Rosh Hashana, the
shofar blasts drive away the
"prosecuting attorney" an
angel who seeks to convict people
when they are on trial for their
lives as all people are judged to
be on New Year's day. But the Bi-
ble gives no hint of any such func-
tion. What did the Bible have in
mind by sounding the shofar? For
that matter, if the shofar's
"power" is to drive away evil
spirits it would long ago have lost
all significance with the decliine
on belief in evil spirits.
There are hints of the possible
function of the shofar in the Bible.
In actual usage: a) when the Lord
"came down" on Sinai, the shofar
was sounded in a long blast; b)
when the fiftieth or jubilee year
arrived the year when slaves
were set free and the land was
redistributed to all the inhabitants
the shofar was sounded. The
verse quoted on the Liberty Bell:
"proclaim freedom throughout
the land for all its inhabitants"
was fulfilled by the shofar blast; c)
the shofar was used to rally people
for war, d) the shofar was blown
as a military signal ("Joshua com-
manded the children to blow, and
the walls came tumblin' down.")
Saadya Gaon points out that the
shofar was blown at coronations.
The sounding of the shofar on the
first day of the seventh month
hints at a possible coronation
theme. There are scholars who
have argued that Rosh Hashana is
somehow linked to Canaanite an-
nual divine coronation ceremonies
when the powers of the gods were
"renewed' by human ritual and
sympathetic magic so that the
earth's fertility would be assured.
But the Bible totally rejects any
notion of humans giving power to
G-d or any divine need for
"renewal." In the Jewish context,
the shofar blast represents the
Jewish people's proclamation that
the Lord is their King or Ruler -
beyond any earthly ruler and
also that the Lord rules over all
the earth. This theme is
celebrated in the traditional
liturgy for Rosh Hashana in the
Kingship (Malchuyot) section
which incorporates ten Biblical
verses citing G-d as ruler of the
world, followed by shofar
The truth is that in the Bible,
Rosh Hashana itself is not openly
identified. The first day of the
seventh month (now called Tishrei
and the day of Rosh Hashana) is
called "a holy day" and "a day of
blowing." But the month of
Nissan is called "the head of the
months. the first of the months
of the year. ." We know that
kings' reigns and other political
dates were figured from the
month of Nissan which was the
"political New Year." It remained
for the Oral Law and Rabbinic
literature to articulate the full
theme of the Jewish New Year
with all the classic associations of
humans on trial because every
year, G-d assesses each individual
person for life and death.
Once the trial theme was
elaborated, every Jew needed all
the help he could get to pass the
trial successfully. Here another
association was summned up.
Abraham had bound his son,
Isaac, to the altar, prepared to
make the ultimate sacrifice in
faithfulness to G-d. A ram was
substituted at the end; G-d wanted
no human sacrifice. But the will-
ingness to sacrifice, both on
Abraham and Issac"s part, in
itself, was a merit that every Jew
wished to draw upon. The binding
was a classic symbol of Jewish
faithfulness. Tradition insisted
that the shofar be made of ram's
horn to summon up the associa-
tion with the Akedak, the Binding
of Isaac. In this interpretation,
the shofar sound is a cry for mercy
and forgiveness, and possibly one
which recollects the cries and
tears of Isaac's (and all Jewish)
martyrdom. This theme was built
into the second section of the
traditional liturgy Zichronot
memories) whose ten Biblical
verses summon up G-d's
remembering for mercy and
The two primary sounds of the
shofar capture both themes. The
first called Tekiah. is a straight,
long blast a grand sound which
was used for proclamation and
coronation. The second sound is
called Teruak, three broken or
wavering sounds. Here two tradi-
tions of the sound developed in
different Jewish communities.
One version held that it was a
moaning sound expressed in
three broken sounds (shevarim
broken). The other version held
that it was an outcry type sound,
i.e., three times three or nine stac-
cato, almost bleating sounds
(Teruak alarm sound). Clearly
this sound in either version was a

The Sound of
____the Shofar
for mercy invoking Isaac's
sacrifice or an alarm at the com-
ing trial or both. The tradition
was to blow one straight blast, one
broken and one straight, in sets of
three together. After the destruc-
tion, Jews came together from
communities with differing ver-
sions of the teruak. To avoid
splintering and dissension, Rabbi
Abbahu of Caesarea ruled that a
set of each sound version be blown
and, for good measure, one incor-
porating both broken sounds
together. This became the prac-
tice down to today.
Judaism is a religion with a
powerful forward thrust. The cen-
tral Jewish dream is of a final
redemption in which the whole
world will be perfected and all
humanity set free from war, op-
pression, poverty and sickness.
Therefore, the Rabbis were not
satisfied just to evoke memory
i.e., to look back for the sake of
mercy and just to proclaim G-d as
Ruler in the present. They added a
third dimension to the liturgy
called Shofrot Giterally shofars
or shofar sounds) which sum-
mons up the verses of future
redemption. "On that day, a great
shofar will be sounded and all
those lost in the land of Assyria or
scattered in the land of Egypt will
come and bow to the Lord in the
holy mountain, Jerusalem." Thus
the "oldest" sounds were to carry
the message of the "newest" faith
of the three thousand year old
dream of the Kingdom of G-d that
is yet to be born.
In sum, the rabbis insisted that
the shofar sounds incorporated
the extraordinary contradictories
which are yoked together in
Judaism the gentleness of cries
for mercy, the strength of pro-
clamation of divine power, the in-
exhaustibility of future hope. By
mixing the versions of the blasts
together, the Rabbis sought to
teach that the sounds also repre-
sent unity the unity of the
divine and the human, the unity of
the diverse Jewish people.

Memories From '66 to '86...
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Editor'* Note: The following in-
formation it compiled from the ar-
chive* of The Jewish Floridian of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Nineteen hundred and Seventy
One. The Jewish Floridian of
North Broward, "the official
publication in disseminating news
of the Federation, organizations,
religious institutions and other ac-
tivities of Jewish interest," is
born. Fred K. Shochet, publisher
of the Greater Miami Jewish
Floridian, has agreed to take on
this venture as publisher of the
North Broward Floridian.
Federation begins to recognize
the dedication and devotion of the
area couples by presenting the
first annual Leadership Award to
Oscar and Fran Sindell.
Federation president Alvin
Gross appoints Martin Kurtz as
chairman of Leadership Develop-
ment program.
Thirty-four officers and direc-
tors take over posts at the North
Broward Federation at the fourh
annual meeting.
The local synagogue movement
takes a giant step as Temple Beth
Israel, a Conservative congrega-
tion, breaks ground on its new
sanctuary. Membership numbers
230 and growing. The new
$360,000 facility at 7100 W.
Oakland Park Blvd., is to house
classrooms, two kosher kitchens,
and a large all-purpose room
which will seat 400 people.
United Jewish Appeal-Israel
Emergency Fund campaign chair-
man Irwin Weiser, appoints four
co-chairmen, Allan Baer, Dr.
Myron Rubin, Howard Miller and
Joel Miller, to help with the up-
coming 1972 drive. A goal of
$460,000 is set for '72.
Over $260,000 was allocated in
1971. Chief beneficiary of the an-
nual campaign was the United
Jewish Appeal which received
$190,000 for its health, welfare,
rehabilitation, immigration and
absorption programs in Israel as
well as for other life-saving pro-
grams around the world con-
ducted by agencies funded by the
Nationally, Federation allocated
dollars to American Jewish Con-
gress, American Jewish Commit-
tee, Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith and the National
Jewish Community Relations Ad-
visory Council plus national
cultural programs such as the
American Jewish Historical Socie-
ty and American Association for
Jewish Education and others.
Also receiving allocations were
the Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds and the
Synagogue Council of America.
The largest allocation made to a
local beneficiary agency or service
was a grant of $3,420 made to
Jewish Family and Children's Ser-
vice of Broward County.
Thanks to the growth and
development of the North
Broward Jewish comunity and its
leadership, Federation is proud to
announce that in 1986, Jewish
Family Service received an alloca-
tion of $264,860. We've come a
long way.

Chazak Mission A Sell-Out
Project Renewal was born in
controversy, raised in confusion,
choked by doubts and an-
tagonisms and kept alive only
through the dedication and zeal of
a very few people in the Israeli
government, the Jewish Agency,
the United Jewish Appeal, Keren
Hayesod, the fund-raising com-
munities and participating Israeli
At its inception, a government
minister used a Yiddish expres-
sion to describe the program as il-
legitimate, most Americans saw it
as a gimmick, many in Israel felt it
was a political decision but to-
day all take pride in its record of
If Project Renewal proved the
doubters wrong by bringing new
hope to neighborhoods and depth
to Israel-Diaspora relations, it
was because a minority of its sup-
porters in each involved country
were practitioners in the field,
unfettered by their
establishments and not burdened
by the painful labor of Project
Renewal's birth. Therein lies its
problems today as well as its hope
for the future.
If Project Renewal is to con-
tinue to strengthen the links bet-
ween Diaspora communities and
individuals with Israel and build
social structures and leadership in
Israel's underprivileged
neighborhoods, the initial pro-
blems that still plague the pro-
gram must be resolved. But they
may never be unless there is a
readiness to move past slogans
and lace Project Renewal's very
In August, 1976, just two hours
before the closing dinner in the
Knesset of a National UJA Prime
Minister's Mission, word was
received by UJA leaders that
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
planned to propose a special
emergency housing campaign for
deprived neighborhoods in Israel.
An urgent call was placed to the
prime minister and UJA leaders
met him and his advisers at the
prime minister's residence. The
UJA leaders were dressed for din-
ner and Begin, still in his shirt-
sleeves, was perplexed and
disturbed as to the reasons for the
objections to his proposed
It was explained that announc-
ing a new billion dollar housing
campaign, without prior notifica-
tion, would confuse those present,
harm the mission's purpose, and
create insurmountable difficulties
for the proposed new effort.
After considerable discussion,
Begin relented, agreed not to
launch the new program but an-
nounce it as a critical item on the
Jewish agenda. A committee was
appointed, headed by Max Fisher,
then chairman of the Board of
Governors of the Jewish Agency,
to plan a viable framework for the
prime minister's proposal one
that would heighten the possibility
of success in Israel and be ac-
cepted by UJA and community
federations. The members of the
committee were drawn from the
United Jewish Appeal, Council of
Jewish Federations, the United
Israel Appeal and the Joint
Distribution Committee.
It was this committee's

Gladys Daren
In May, the Jewish Federation
Board approved allocations of
$6,350,000 for the fiscal year
1986-87 to meet the needs of
Jews. Money not only to maintain
the vital service already being
provided, but money also to allow
for expansion of services to people
in need.
Of its 1986-87 budget, more
than $1,649 million is for pro-
grams in the North Broward
County area. The money for that
is provided by the Federa-
tion/UJA campaign. It provides a
large portion of income for local
agencies' total community service

paid. What you pledged in the
past months was a heartfelt gift.

your commitment. That is ab-
solutely essential. Thus far this
year, the campaign has raised
$6,113 million. We still have till
the end of the year to meet the
funds necessary to provide our

The "Lion of Judah ."
An ancient legend tells of a
woman who was created of the
same soil as man and so con-
sidered herself equal to man in all
things. Her name was "Lilith."
Adam was not pleased with that
situation thereupon G-d created
Eve from the rib of Adam...
Even if this is merely a legend, the
'spirit of Lilith' lives on and
women have been in the forefront
of every cause for equality,
humanity, and justice from the
very beginning of time. As we
recall the strength of Rachel...
the vitality of Sarah... the
leadership of Deborah the
power of Esther. and the
determination of Golda, we
remember the spirit of Lilith and
speculate that perhaps the con-
cept of Women's Divisions really
began thousands of years ago. All
of those memories certainly live
on in Jewish woman today.
Throughout recorded time women
have had an unceasing commit-
ment to Tzedakah. Unfortunately,
Tzedakah has come to mean
"charity" by so many people. The
Hebrew language has no word for
the idea charity when it connotes
"pity." The literal meaning of
Tzedakah is "righteousness." It
implies that one should never feel
ashamed to accept help from
others for it is the giver who
benefits by being able to improve
the quality of life. A responsibility
of righteousness has characteriz-
ed Jewish women for thousands of
Exactly 40 years ago in March,
1946,300 dedicated women met in
St. Louis and pledged to work
together with other women for
the survival of the Jewish people.
This was the beginning of the
Women's Division of the United
Jewish Appeal in the United
States. Within nine months, Na-
tional Women's Division had rais-
ed nearly 10 percent of UJA's
$100 million campaign for 1946.
The formation of the Women's
Division meant that each woman,
as an individual, and not just as
part of a family, could be responsi-
ble for doing her share to provide
for Jews not fortunate enough to
be able to provide for themselves.
For more than 20 years communi-
ty centers, schools, and health
facilities have been built with
money that was raised exclusively
by UJA Women's Divisions. ,
Eliezer Shmueli, for many years
Israeli Minister of Education, has
frequently praised the generosity
and dedication of American
Jewish women in farthering the
goals of education in Israel. The
women of our own community of
Greater Fort Lauderdale have
pledged the funds necessary to
build a Home Environment
Center in Project Renewal City of
Emma Lazarus said, "Until we
all of us are free, we none of us are
free Our Fort Lauderdale
Women's Division has always
understood the concept of
Tzedakah, yet we must occasional-
ly restate why each man and
woman must make individual
gifts. One most important fact
that is so often overlooked is that
'numbers' count. In Washington,
for instance, it is the number of
gifts that is tallied. The American
government bases its aid to Israel
not only on the amount of money
raised by American Jews, but also
on the number of Jewish givers.
They say Mr. Cohen's gift is
counted as one, Mrs. Cohen's gift
to Women's Division is another
one, but Mr. and Mrs. Cohen's
family gift is only considered as
one. Therefore, individually, their
pledges count as two votes for
Jewish survival. We live in a
world where apathy and silence
threaten our democratic way of
life. We each have the respon-
sibility to stand up and be counted
ONE by ONE. Before we can
become complacent and tell
ourselves we have done enough,
terrorists bomb a synagogue in
Turkey or hijack another airliner.
Every woman has the right to ex-
press her own commitment to
Jewish life by making her own
pledge. Over 100 million dollars
from indiviual women's separate
gifts play a major role in meeting
Israel's health, education, and
welfare needs as well as
strengthening the fabric of local
Last year our own Women's
Division raised over $1 million, 18
percent of the Greater Fort
Lauderdale total campaign. We
can take pride in the progress and
growth we have achieved since
1968 when Fran Sindell became
the first president of the Women's
Division. What was originally a
campaign for "Plus giving" soon
became a viable fund-raising arm
of the community. It would soon
be accorded the position of a "per-
manent division of the Federation
in recognition of the very impor-
tant roles that women play in com-
munity life," according to the
Women's handbook. By 1976,
Anita Perlman presided over a
board "governed by its own Board
of Directors and Officers and its
own set of bylaws as an organic
part of the Federation." Then, as
now, the Federation was recogniz-
ed as the central philanthropic
organization of the Jewish Com-
munity of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale. Two years later, during the
presidency of Mitchie Libros,
Women's Division raised half a
million dollars. She was also the
president who brought Fort
Lauderdale the "Little Lion,"
while Gladys Daren was vice
president of campaign. That first
year only seven women pledged
the $2,500 that allowed them to
wear the unique Lapis charm. The
"Lion of Judah," indicating a
minimum donation of $5000, was
first introduced to Greater Fort
Lauderdale during Gladys
Daren's presidency in 1981.
Although it originated in Miami,
the lion has recently been adopted
by women's campaigns nation-
wide. It has become recognized
both here and in Israel as a special
commitment of Jewish women. A
ruby in the eye of the lion con-
notes a pledge of at least $10,000
to the Women's Division. This
beautiful pendant is currently
worn by many members of our
own community and by steadily
increasing numbers of women
across the country.
The challenge of Jewish survival
through education, as well as fun-
ding, is being met by our Women's
Division in programs being
prepared for the coming season.
As in the past, we shall sponsor a
Community Day with a full range
of exciting and informative
speakers. There will be oppor-
tunities for women from all of our
various Jewish organizations to
take part in these activities, as
well as many others throughout
the year.
As the 1986-87 campaign
begins, we are more aware than
ever of the tensions of the world.
In the coming months, Kol Ishah
shall report on campaign issues,
meetings and events as they oc-
cur. During the next year, women
will raise more money than ever
before, women shall influence
more people than ever before and
shall learn more than ever before.
As the spiritual daughters of
Jewish women from Lilith to
Golda, we are prepared to live as
full participants in a complex
society in partnership with one
another and with men ...
with equal responsibilities as well
as with equal rights. It is not
enough to hold the key, but by our
own efforts, we must unlock the
doors to freedom for Jews the
world over.

The Gold Coast Council of the
B'nai B'rith Youth Organization
has selected the new 1986-87
Chairpeople for its Six Million
Pennies Project, now entering its
seventh year. Andrea Lebenson,
Tracy Norman and Scott Silvers-
tein. all of B'yachad BBYO in
Palm Beach Gardens are now at
the helm and intend to spur the
drive forward.
BBYO's Six Million Pennies
Project was created in 1979 by the
BBYO's youth leaders as a way to
commemorate the sue million Jews
who perished in the Holocaust.
Those who initiated the project
found it difficult to fully com-
prehend the magnitude of the
figure-t?six million" and thus em-
barkecfupon a plan to collect sue
million pennies in order to help
them to visualize its immensity.
At present, after six years of cons-
tant collection efforts, not only by
BBYO but by the local B'nai
B'rith and B'nai B'rith Women's
groups, the total figure stands at
1.7 million. But the members have
not been discouraged; on the con-
trary, they have become more
determined than ever to increase
their efforts. And, of course, the
sheer length of the project has in-
deed taught them well the enormi-
ty of the tragedy which the Jews
suffered at the hands of the Nazis.
Said one member, "It's hard to
believe that after all these years of
collecting hundreds of jars full of
coins, that we stall haven't even
approached our final goal. Sure,
it's frustrating, but it certainly
forces you to think about just how
many individual lives were actual-
ly lost in that total of six million."
When the project is finally com-
pleted the resulting $60,000 will
be allocated by the Gold Coast
Council youth to organizations
which work to preserve the
memory of the Holocaust and to
strengthen the Jewish

whose life opened up vistas of joy and enrichment to so many dur-
ing his fruitful years in the Rabbinate.
When the philosopher, George Santayana, spoke at the
graveside of a dear friend, he said, "I do not know which is the
greater, that which thou takest from me, or that which thou
leavest behind." I cannot help but think of these words when I
reflect upon the death of my dear friend and colleague. By his
death, he has taken away so much from his beloved wife, Lucia,
and from his relatives and friends. He was always a source of
pleasure and good cheer, of stimulation and enrichment. His
friendship was precious, caring, loving, unconditional. His smile
and handshake were genuine. Over the years, he meant so much
to so many in joy and in sorrow and he shall be sorely missed.
But how fortunate are we that he who has taken away much has
left valuable riches for which many shall always be in his debt.
How deep and sincere were his love and his devotion for the com-
munities that he served, and for his people. Over the many years,
there has not been an enriching cultural endeavor, a vital fund-
raising project, an ennobling communal effort which Rabbi David
Matzner has not led, and been an active participant, and to which
he had not given wholeheartedly of himself. Zionism, Jewish
education, cultural programs, personal counselling nothing was
foreign to him as long as it served to strengthen and to
perpetuate the richness and beauty of Judaism, which was so dear
to his heart. Though he may have been short in physical stature,
he was a spiritual giant in the pulpit, as he brought his message of
wisdom, faith and courage, permeated with scholarly Biblical and
Talmudic references, and replete with high ethical and moral
teachings. Rabbi David Matzner, indeed, left us tokens of his love
and devotion which have brought enrichment and blessings to
Because he had tasted of pain and suffering in his own life, hav-
ing survived the torments of concentration camps, and because he
was no stranger to tragedy in his family, having lost a young
talented and promising son, Rabbi Matzner was able to bring a
compassionate and emphatic heart into the lives of the pained, the
suffering and the victims of tragedy of all racial and religious
backgrounds who found new faith and hope through his selfless
If Rabbi Matzner succeeded in making such an enduring con-
tribution to Jewish life, it was because of his beloved wife, Lucia,
who shared his interests, and gave him encouragement, and who
always stood firmly at his side. She will have many beautiful
memories of her loved one to strengthen her and to sustain her
during the difficult and trying days ahead.
The genius of Judaism is expressed in many ways. It is especial-
ly evident in the language of the Bible which describes the death
of the patriarchs of Israel, and where there is a unique phrase us-
ed in the vocabulary of death. In speaking of the death of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Bible uses the phrase "va-ye-a-sef
el a-mov," which can be translated to mean "and he was absorbed
among his own." For if life is to have any meaning, and if we are
to find a measure of consolation in the loss of loved ones, it is only
when we feel that even in death, they remain with us, and live on
in our memories and in our hearts. Of Rabbi David Matzner, we
can truly say "and he was absorbed among his own." Before each
chapter of his inspiring and noble life, we can add "T'hilah
L'Dovid-A Psalm of Praise, inspired by David."

A New Year Greetings
Time now for the traditional ram's horn to
Sound its awesome, piercing call,
For world Jewry to gather in prayer, hearts
Turned toward the sacred Wall!
Time now for an age-old stirring of conscience,
A quickening of spiritual pulse,
A spark of faith in Divine reassurance
For healing a world convulsed!
Time now to assemble, to pray together,
For everlasting universal peace;
Time now to join hands and strive together
For man-made griefs surcease!
As our sages of old have expounded, ours is
Not to query or reason why;
Ours not to perfect this ailing universe;
Ours only to zealously try!
Time now for asking forgiveness, for the
Slights we may have committed,
For unwitting acts of disservice, or
Acts of kindness omitted!
May all mankind's sins be forgiven, all
The world abide then in peace;
May human kindness then flourish, all
Heavenly blessings increase!

In operation since Sept. 1984,
the program has attracted learn-
ing disabled children who have
thus far been excluded from
mainstream Jewish education.
Morris Ezry, director of education
at Temple Beth Orr, is giving the
program high priority in order to
accommodate that segment of the
According to Fran Forman,
learning disability specialist of the
program, remarkable progress
has been made by the children in
the program.
"These are kids who used to be
labeled as troublemakers," For-
man stated. "They have short at-
tention spans and they can't learn
in a regular Hebrew school class
with 20 children. We teach them
on a one-to-one basis with the help
of an aide. They have fun learning
and they really look forward to
coming here," she said.
The program is open to all learn-
ing disabled children. The class
meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays
from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Tem-

Project Renewal

Continued from Page 11
time for its presentation to a
Council of Jewish Federations
quarterly meeting in Washington.
There, a reluctant consensus was
reached but only on the basis of
community option in conducting
the campaigns for Project
Renewal. The debate was stormy
as those present raised valid ques-
tions regarding the structure and
process for the programs both in
the U.S. and in Israel.
Thereafter it was learning by
trial and error due to the lack of
preparation on both countries
which resulted in: twinning of in-
compatible communities and
neighborhoods due to inadequate
research and planning; limitation
of Project Renewal to five years in
order to overcome community
resistance; inequities in communi-
ty response as local option limited
participation to small groups of
larger contributors; inappropriate
budgets and authority in Israel in
the government and Jewish Agen-
cy to carry out the program.
It is almost 10 years now since
Menachem Begin stood in the
K nesset to propose partnership to
resolve a crisis not connected with
war. He reacted viscerally to the
problem of inadequate housing.
Others with vision and courage in
Israel and in the Diaspora added
social substance and today the
results are visible throughout the
A High Holiday
The prophet Isaiah (58:6) taught
us the meaning of the Days of
Awe: "Is it not this the fast I look
for: to unlock the shackles of in-
justice, to undo the fetters of bon-
dage, to let the oppressed go
free ... Is it not to share your
bread with the hungry, and to br-
ing the homeless poor into your
house? When you see the naked,
to clothe them, and never to hide
yourself from your own kin?
... Then shall your people rebuild
the ancient ruins, and lay the
foundations for ages to come. You
shall be called 'repairer of the
breach, restorer of streets to
dwell in.'"
As we approach the Jewish New
Year 5747, Isaiah's challenge still
calls us to action.
Is not the true fast... "to let
i he oppressed go free?" Thousands
of Soviet Jews who have dared to
apply for exit visas languish in
"refusal." Hundreds of thousands
more are suffering new persecu-
tions. The survival of the third
largest Jewish community in the
world is jeopardized by assimila-
tion and threatened with the an-
nihilation of their Jewish identity.
Our task in the year 5747 is to
hear their cry, to rally and to
press for their freedom.
Is not the true fast... "neverto
hide yourself from your own kin?"
In Israel's distressed
neighborhoods, in the grim alleys
nd courtyards of Prague or the
Jewish quarter of Casablanca, in
old age homes, baby clinics,
centers for troubled youth -
there are Jews who need our help.
Fortunately, our Jewish com-
munity has established agencies
snd institutions capable of
transmitting our assistance to the
People of Israel and to Jews
round the globe. Our mandate in
the year 5747 is to respond to
Jewish need with open hands and
a full heart.
All of us at UJA wish you and
those you love, L'Skana fovak!
The question today is whether
Project Renewal still makes a dif-
ference in Israel and throughout
the Jewish world? Does the pro-
cess uplift people and places in
Israel? Does it strengthen
Diaspora relationships with other
people, land and State of Israel?
If it does, isn't it time for com-
munities outside of Israel to begin
to be less selective in their in-
volvement and, for example,
begin planning for Israel's 50th
anniversary to bring the largest
number of men, women and
children from all giving levels to
celebrate with their
neighborhoods snd plan together
for the future?
If it does, isn't it time for the
government to deal with Renewal
on appropriate standards in every
ministry with budgets commen-
surate to the challenge and the
And if it does, shouldn't the
Jewish Agency consider changing
its priorities and its relationship
with its funding bodies so that
Renewal budgets will be met as
are all other departmental
And with Western aliya prac-
tically non-existent, with govern-
ment cuts in budgets, with the
Jewish Agency strugKling to meet
needs and cut debt at the same
time, with increases in campaign
funds barely keeping pace with in-
flation, shouldn't the lessons
learned in Project Renewal be
transferred to other areas of in-
terpersonal Diaspora-Israel in-
volvement whether education,
settlement, immigration, absorp-
tion or industry?
The real wonder of Project
Renewal is not that it achieved so
much in so short a time against
such strong opposition, but that it
did it for so little less than an
average of $20 million annually
from the Jewish world excluding
Israel's contributions.
Imagine what might have hap-
pened, and still could, if Project
Renewal were to be funded at a
level appropriate to its challenge
and potential, and opened up to all
generations no matter their level
of giving or role in communities.
The program has seen continui-
ty from generation to generation
in less than a decade. Ten years
ago, Max Fisher led the way to its
acceptance. Today his daughter,
Jane Sherman, is Project Renewal
national chairwoman. Ten years
from now Project Renews! will
either be a way of life for Israelis
and Jews from all over the world
or just a distant memory.

Holocaust Memorial
Center Needs Your Help
NJCRACR Leader Deplores Use Of
Violence; Urges Peaceful Demonstrations
Scarcely four decades ago, the
Jewish people endured the most
heinous oppression in the history
of mankind, the Holocaust. Yet to-
day as our life and our culture
seem secure, there are those who
deny the Holocaust, calling it a
hoax. Only with conscientious ef-
forts to remember can we hope to
avoid such a catastrophe for our
children and future generations.
The Southeastern Florida
Holocaust Memorial Center is
dedicated to those future genera-
tions. The goal of the Center is to
build perpetual archives as a "Liv-
ing Memorial Through Educa-
tion" with the recorded testimony
of survivors, their liberators, pro-
tectors, and partisans.
The Center depends on personal
support from individuals. If you
are interested please contact the
Center at 940-5690.

national coordinating body for the

"We deplore the violent inci-

mance by the Soviet Moiseyev

New York City. Violence does not
advance the cause of Soviet
Jewry. In America's free and
open society there are ample op-
portunities for people to express
their deep concern on any issue;
certainly that is true in the case of
Soviet Jewry. In fact, we know
that concern over the continued
oppression of Soviet Jews is
shared by millions of Americans,
both Jews and non-Jews.
"As we asserted in the release
of NJCRAC's 1986-87 Joint Pro-

Soviet citizens, through reasoned
and reasonable means, of
Americans' concerns for the
human rights of Soviet Jews.

Friday, SeptortfteV 86, 1986/Th'e Jewiah Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 21
In the Jewish month of Tishri,
approximately 3800 years ago, an
event took place that had a profound
affect on the conscience of humanity.
It established the principle that
Man alone is responsible for preserving
the gift of freedom granted to him by
God at the Creation.
The experience of the patriarch
Abraham, the father of the Jewish
people, launched a new era of human
understanding. For Abraham's will-
ingness to sacrifice his most cherished
possession, his son Isaac, on behalf of
his faith and ideals, gave man a new
direction and purpose for life.
The Biblical story of Abraham's
triumph, therefore, is not merely an
account of the test of the strength of
one man's convictions and prepared-
ness to act on behalf of what he
believed. It is a test all humanity must
be ready to face. For freedom to live,
develop and worship as one chooses is a
gift not easily acquired, and once
obtained, of ten requires sacrifice to
If humanity is unprepared to meet
its obligations to preserve freedom, it
may ultimately lose it
Rosh Hashana, the solemn Jewiah
New Year, reaffirms the principle
established nearly 4000 years ago, that
Man's destiny to be free lies in his
own hands.
As the Shofar is sounded on Rosh
Hashana, it summons humanity to
unite in the cause of freedom and jus-
tice. It bids mankind to heed the pleas
of all who suffer from oppression and
slavery. It rekindles the spirit of hope
and peace for humanity.
It evokes the day in which Man met
his soul.
It's what makes us Jews.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale/UJA, is
grateful for your support of our 1986 Campaign, whose goal you

the needs of the Jewish education of our youth.

helping individuals with personal problems.
The 1987 Campaign will start soon. When you are solicited by
one of your neighbors, please remember the State of Israel is
passing through one of the most critical times in its history. Our
Jewish people have never shirked their obligations to the less for-
tunate of our people and to the State of Israel.

Jewish Book
During the past 15 years, the
number of Jews returning to
Jewish observance, part of the
phenomenon known as the Baal
Teshuva movement, has grown.
This has been a much discussed
topic in Jewish circles with ar-
ticles and books being written.
Yet a recently published book
seeks to shed light on the other
side of the Baal Teshuva move-
ment. Michela Graubart Levin's
book "Journey To Tradition: The
Odyssey Of A Born Again Jew
(Ktav Publishers, $14.95) had
originally been conceived as a
primor, a How To book on becom-
ing a religious returnee. Mr.
Levin was raised in a non-
observant Jewish household and
during a visit to Israel wandered
into the midst of one of
Jerusalem's famed Baal Teshuva
Yeshivas. Intrigued by what he
saw, and distressed by his own
lack of Jewish learning, Mr. Levin
decided to put on hold his studies
at Amherst and delve into the
world of the Talmud and the sea of
Jewish observance. The book
describes the world of the Yeshiva
as perceived by a newcomer, the
joy of learning and the difficulties
faced when confronted by non-
observant family members.
Eventually returning to New
York, Levin attended Law school
and attempted to remain the
devout Jew he had become. While
this book seeks to show the beauty
of the search, it also points to a
more serious problem: the accep-
tance of these returnees. Levin's
pain became acute when he realiz-
ed that he was not being fully ac-
cepted as a part of the Jewish
community because he wasn't a
"FFB" 'from from birth." The at-
titude of many was that people
such as himself were fly by nights,
religious today secular tomorrow.
This book is a must for those
who want to find out what it is like
to become a Baal Teshuva ideal
for parents whose children are
studying at yeshiva and are
perplexed by the development. It
is also vital for those already
religious Jews who need to be
reminded what it is like to volun-
tarily take on new observances
and a new community and the
need to make these newcomers
feel at home and welcomed.
More than 40 years after the
liberation of the European death
camps, new information continues
to emerge about the silence of
western democracies in pro-
testing the destruction of Euro-
pean Jewry. Deborah Lipstadt's
book "Beyond Belief: The
American Press And The Coming
Of The Holocaust 1933-1945"
(The Free Press, $19.95) ex-
amines how the American press
reacted to the emerging news of
the wholesale murder of Europe's
Jews. Her book details how the
prestige American newspapers,
The New York Times and The
Washington Post, for example,
covered news of such events as
the deportation of Jews, condi-
tions in the Warsaw Ghetto and
the failure to accept the reality of
the reports of the gassing of Jews.
Dr. Lipstadt, Professor of Jewish
History at the University of
California at Los Angeles and
newly appointed director of the
Brandeis Bardin Institute comes
to some very chilling conclusions
which gives the reader greater in-
sight into that tragic era in our
most recent past. This book
deserves to be on everyone's

NCJW To Study Working Mothers' Needs
The National Council of Jewish
Women's (NCJW) Center for the
Child has begun a new research
project to study the rapidly chang-
ing needs of families in which
mothers work. The project will be
the largest study of its type ever
conducted, said James T. Bond,
Director of the NCJW Center for
the Child.
In discussing the need for the
project, "Mothers in the
Workplace," Mr. Bond noted: "In
1950, only 12 percent of women
with children under six years of
age were in the paid labor force.
Today, that proportion is more
than 50 percent and still growing.
This trend, coupled with the
dramatic growth in the number of
single-parent families, has pro-
foundly altered family life and
child rearing patterns in the
United States."
"Mothers in the Workplace" is
being conducted by NCJW
Jets Bomb
Air Force jets bombed a terrorist
base south of Sidon at dawn last
Wednesday (Sept. 10) and return-
ed safely to their bases. A military
spokesman identified the target
as the headquarters, storage
depot and staging area of a group
known as the Popular Struggle
Front, headed by Samir Ghosba.
It is said to be backed by Iraq
and to cooperate with the Syrian-
backed Al Saiqa and with Ahmed
Jibril's Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine-General
volunteers across the country.
They will undertake research in
three stages. Currently, during
the first stage, NCJW volunteers
are surveying employers in their
communities to determine those
policies and benefits the
workplace provides to support
family formation.
"We are gathering information
such as what provision employers
make for medical care, maternity
leave, and infant care leave for
mothers and fathers and how they
handle employment when a
mother is ready to return to
, work," said Mr. Bond. Several
thousand businesses, ranging
from large corporations to corner
grocery stores, will be included.
Established in 1893, the Na-
tional Council of Jewish Women is
the oldest Jewish women's
organization in America. NCJW's
more than 100,000 members in
200 Sections nationwide are ac-
tive in the organization's priority
areas of women's issues, Jewish
life, aging, children and youth,
Israel and Constitutional rights.

Violence Renewed
And Turks Fear What It Bodes
The brutal and sadistic
massacre by "Arabic-
speaking" terrorists of
more than a score of Jews
attending services at Istan-
bul's refurbished Neve
Shalom Synagogue has
shocked and horrified the
civilized world. For the
20,000 Jews of Istanbul,
Neve Shalom, the venerable
"Abode of Peace" in
Hebrew, was suddenly
transformed into a charnel
house and conflagration.
The attack was all the more
disconcerting because the Jewish
community had become accustom-
ed to living in tranquility and
peace under the new democratic
institutions reestablished after
the Turkish military authorities
had intervened in September,
1980 to end the terrorist violence

because they had become part of

These strains were heightened
in 1982, after Israel provided
Turkey with fresh evidence it had
captured in PLO bases in southern
Lebanon of the presence there of
Turkish urban guerrillas, as well
as anti-Turkish Armenian and
Kurdish secessionist bands.
The Turkish Foreign Minister
liter Turkmen expressed his
displeasure to reporters on

especially since many observers
have been noting a resurgence of

generation in Turkey. While by no
means as widespread as the
Islamic fundamentalism that has
taken over in Iran, it is feared by
some that this tendency, if left un-
checked, could erode the Western,
secularist outlook which Mustafa
Kemal Ataturk, founder of the
Turkish Republic, sought to instill
in the youth.
Ozal, himself a devout Moslem,
has been encouraging closer ties
between Turkey and the Islamic
world, although his declared in-

economic and political benefits
from Turkey's position as a bridge
between the West and the Middle
East. Ozal has refused to yield to
Arab demands to break off rela-
tions with Israel.

IF THIS is established, then the
date of the synagogue attack,
Sept. 6, may prove highly signifi-
cant. For it was on Sept. 6, 1980
that a massive rally was held in
the traditional Islamic center of
Konya, where religious fanatics
shouted Arabic slogans and called
for the abolition of secularism in
Ostensibly, the march was call-
ed to protest against Israel's
Knesset decision proclaiming
unified Jerusalem Israel's eternal
capital. But the Jerusalem Day
rally in Konya soon turned overtly
anti-Semitic. Necmettin Erbakan,
leader of the pro-Islamic National
Salvation Party (NSP), blamed
"International Zionism" for all of
Turkey's economic problems, call-
ed on Turkey to break off
diplomatic ties with Israel and
urged all Moslems to liberate
According to eye-witnesses, a
child, dressed in traditional
Islamic garb, marched carrying a
banner, declaring: "Death to the
Jews!" Another banner proclaim-
ed: "One branch of Zionism is
capitalism, the other is com-
munism." The demonstration end-
ed with the burning of the Israeli,
American and Soviet flags. (This
symbolized that for Erbakan's
followers as for Ayatollah Kho-
meini's, the three "Satans" which
Islam had to confront were Israel,
the U.S. and the Soviet Union.)
THE KONYA rally was "the
last straw" for the Turkish
military, who regard themselves
as the guardians of Ataturk's
secular heritage. Sue days later,
on September 12, 1980, the
military, led by Chief of Staff
Kenan Evren, took over. The NSP
and other extremist parties were
outlawed. Erbakan was arrested
and charged with violating the
Turkish constitution. He was tried
and convicted, but was recently
released from prison.

Women's League Indicates Increasing
Use of Biblical Names For Newborns

"Rachel" and "Adam" were the'
most popular names selected by
Jewish families for their newborn
children in 1985-86, according to a
random survey conducted by the
Women's League for Conser-
vative Judaism.
In response to questions posed
by the Women's League 28
Branch Presidents in the United
States and Canada, the
Presidents said that "Rebecca,"
"Jonathan," and "Daniel" came
in second as Hebrew choices, with
"Jessica" and "Michael" selected
for English names.
Selma Weintraub, Women's
League President, attributed this
greater use of Hebrew names tc
the strong traditional feeling
among American Jews, to kinship
with the State of Israel, and to i
general sense of closeness withir
the Jewish family.
"In most cases, Ashkenazi
Jewish families still try to name a
newborn after a deceased relative
or to use a derivative of that
relative's first name," Weintraub
stated. "This is done to
perpetuate the memory of the
generation which has passed in
the generation of the future."

Bush is Optimistic About Mideast Peace
dent George Bush said recently
that he has returned from his
10-day trip to the Middle East
with a "more optimistic feeling"
about the prospects for peace in
the region.
Bush said this feeling was based
on the talks he had in Israel, Jor-
dan and Egypt; on the agreement
by the leaders of those three coun-
tries to a statement of five com-
mon goals for negotiations, and
what he called Israeli Premier
Shimon Peres' "historic and
courageous" trip to Morocco for a
meeting with King Hassan II.
The Vice President discussed
his Mideast trip at a press con-
ference with seven American
Jewish and Isreli journalists in his
White House office.
Although Bush was accom-
panied in Israel by a video camera
crew to film his visit for use in his
upcoming campaign for the
Presidency, he denied that his
Mideast trip was political. He
maintained he went to the
Mideast to advance United States
foreign policy. "Anything I do
domestically" or in foreign affairs
"is put in an '88 context," he said.
He added that if the trip helps his
political prospects, then "great."
Bush spoke glowingly of his
meetings with Peres. "I am just
more convinced than ever of his
determination to try to move the
peace process forward," the Vice
President said. He said he did not
feel this would change when
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
becomes Premier in October. "I
felt convinced when he (Shamir)
told me he really wanted things to
move forward,' Bush said.
However, Bush added that
there were domestic problems in
Israel which he saw when he met
with the Knesset Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee and
witnessed the differences bet-
ween Labor and Likud. He did not
Bush said the statement of com-
mon goals, which he read before
leaving Cairo, was first brought
up in Jordan and then agreed to
by Israel and Egypt after
negotiating changes. Peres, King
Hussein of Jordan and Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak all
agreed to the five points listed.
The first goal is that "a just and
lasting peace is essential, urgent
and can only be reached through
negotiations." The second goal is
that "negotiations should produce
peace treaties between the parties
based on the recognition of the
right of all states and peoples in
the region to a life of peace and
The third goal said that
"Negotiations must take into ac-
count the security needs of Israel,
the security needs of all other
states in the region and the
aspirations of the Palestinian peo-
ple." Negotiations to resolve the
Palestinian problem within "the
context of a relationship between
Jordan, the West Bank and Gaza"
was the fourth goal.
The fifth point is that the U.S.
believes "in the importance of
face-to-face negotiation. We
recognize that direct negotiations
may involve the framework of an
international conference or forum

agreement, not dictates.'
Bush conceded that none of the
principles were new. But, "the
fact that you get three Middle
Eastern leaders agreeing on
significant points regarding the
Middle East peace process is more
than useful, it's quite good," he
The Vice President said he was
also encouraged by his talks with
Hussein, who he said "wants to
see a solution. I feel it more now."
He said Hussein was "discourag-
ed" by the U.S. failure to go
through with a promised arms
deal. Bush indicated that his
reception was warmer in Jordan
that it might have been six months
ago when Congress blocked the
arms sale.
Bush said it was a "good thing"
for Hussein to see Peres' visit to
Morocco and see that "the sky did
not fall" in the Arab world. The
Arab reaction "was not all
negative, except for (Syrian Presi-
dent) Hafez Assad," Bush said.
"Before the landing gear was ful-
ly underneath the Prime
Minister's plane, he dumped all
over the meeting. But he was

Hussein still feels he needs
Palestinian participation and an
"international umbrella" in order
to begin negotiations. Bush said
the U.S. supports providing this
"not as a substitute for direct
negotiations" but as a "catalyst"
to get things going.
In this, Bush said the U.S.
would support Hussein's require-
ment that the five permanent
members of the United Nations
Security Council be included. He
denied that this was in variance
with the Reagan Administration
policy to keep the Soviet Union
out of the Mideast peace process.
"We would be very wary of the
Soviets having a major role," he
The Vice President was leas op-
timistic about the Palestinians
with whom he met in Jerusalem.
He said some still continue to sup-
port Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasir Arafat
was responsible for the failure of
Hussein s efforts to get a joint
Palestinian-Jordanian delegation
for negotiations with Israel.
He said he could not get a good
"reading" of the Palestinians
since they argued with each other
as well as with the Americans.
Bush said the U.S. welcomes the
upcoming talks between Israel
and the Soviet Union on restoring
diplomatic relations. "I hope it
will lead to the exit of more Soviet
Jews," he said.
He said the only "disappoint-
ment" of his trip was that the
dispute over Taba was not settled.
He said while the Taba dispute
had not been a goal of his visit, he
believes his visit to Israel and
Egypt may have moved it closer
to settlement.
Bush said he was "delighted"
that eight American Jewish
leaders accompanied him from
Washington to Israel. He said
they called themselves "the gang
of eight" and he was surprised
how well they knew the Israeli
leaders. He said they attended
many of his meetings in Israel. He
said they "enriched my
understanding" of the places he
visited in Israel and the talks he
had there. "I wish we could have
had 80," he said.
The eight, who paid their own

accompany Bush to Jordan and to
Egypt, were: Gordon Zacks, Jacob
Stein, Ivan Novick, Paul Berman,
Joseph Gildenhorn, Barbara Gold,
Richard Goldman and Jay Kialak.
All were people Bush consulted in
planning his trip to Israel, and all
are members of the National
Jewish Coalition.
Bush conceded that he could
have the same problem in his
Presidential campaign that Presi-
dent Reagan had with Jewish
voters over his support of issues
backed by the Christian right
"I would like to end up in the
same position the President ends
up in terms of support for Israel,"
he added. He said that Israeli
leaders, including Peres and
Shamir, "say they nave never had
a better friend in the White
Bush said he knows that Jews
do not vote on the issue of Israel
alone and that any Republican
because of domestic issues and
traditional voting patterns would
find it "very hard to overcome"

Democratic Presidential
Asked about criticism of the
power of the Jewish lobby as
demonstrated by the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee,
Bush replied, "We are respectful
of that power as we are about tex-
tiles as we are about tax reform"
and other issues.
Noting the credit AIPAC has
been given in blocking the Jorda-
nian arms sale, Bush said, "That
does not mean we are not going to
keep on doing what is right for
peace in the Middle East.
Sometimes we will succeed and
sometimes we will have the over-
whelming support of the Jewish
community" and other times they
will oppose the Administration.
Asked about Jerusalem, Bush
said he would "encourage negotia-
tions that will resolve the issue."
But, he quickly added, "I, for one,
don't want to see Jerusalem

Occupational Stress Let Jewish Family Service Help
MSW, Coordinator
of Family Life Education
and Public Relations
After a long day in the office, a
working mother comes home and
faces her hungry children and the
household chores she left unfinish-
ed that morning. An executive
businessman must leave his home
before the children get up for
school, and comes home after
their bedtime that night. A nurse
works the night shift, is on the
alert for emergencies, as she
monitors the vital signs of pa-
tients. A secretary is forced to
work with a slight cold in order to
get out the piles of letters and
All of these people suffer from
job related stress. Work occupies
a major part of most of our lives.
It contains the potential for many
forms of gratification and
challenge and harm. It is not
surprising that a great many of us
at times find work life stressful.
Indeed, stress at work is so com-
monplace that we tend to accept it
as part of the necessary frustra-
tion of daily living. Many stressors
are simply annoying; a few may
lead to serious disability; some
may even cause death.
Mental health professionals
often talk about helping people
"cope with stress." As a number
of people entering counseling to
work on job stress increases, pro-
fessionals are recognizing that
stress related to work is an oc-
cupational health hazard. The
relationship between major
vulnerability and accidents are
clear: an accident is a symptom
and a consequence of stress. Job
stress can trigger alcoholism,
drug abuse and marital problems;
it has been linked to coronary
heart disease, ulcers, high blood
pressure, headaches, and
The first step toward the
dissipation of stress is to
recognize job stress and to
understand how the stress is ex-
pressed is it helping to clarify
work demands or is it dysfunc-

tional? The second step is to ex-
amine how much time is given to
work, including time spent at
home talking about work, or purs-
ing work related activities. People
need leisure, play, meditation,
love, education as well as work to
fulfill their needs. The third step is
to talk about occupational stress
with colleagues and superiors. In
times of stress, management must
be there. The presence of authori-
ty figures who are available both.
to answer questions and to lead is
essential. Great assurance and
reassurance can be drawn from
the simple presence of those in
command. Dependency needs in
times of stress are heightened and
a demonstration that one's
superior cares and recognizes the
impact of stress on the employee
under his or her supervision will
reap incalculable rewards. Job
stress is not solely the product of
individual's age, health, or com-
petency to handle the job, rather,
job structure, work atmosphere,
and mechanisms for supportive
feedback play a significant part in
curtailing stress.
Many people do reduce their
personal vulnerability to stressors
by a different outlook on their pro-
blems, by meditation, exercise,
biofeedback and relaxation techni-
ques, but these and similar
methods offer no assurance nor
insurance of inoculation against
stress reactions. Other techniques
such as opening up new avoca-
tional interests and exploring new
social contacts can also be ex-
tremely helpful to some. But for a
Jew, such moves are very difficult
and may mobilize more anxiety
than they allay. A professional
social worker or counselor can be
invaluable in sorting out stress
related issues and providing sup-
port for needed changes.

BONN, West Germany (JTA) -
Neo-Nazi leader Karl-Heinz Hoff-
mann was sentenced in
Nuremberg to nine-and-a-half
years' imprisonment for offenses
related to his political activities.
Hoffmann was sentenced for il-
legal possession of arms, display-
ing Nazi symbols and circulating
anti-Semitic propaganda.
But the West German man was
cleared of the prosecutor's main
charge that he masterminded the
1980 murder of the Jewish
publisher Shlomo Levin and his
female companion, Frida
Hoffmann's girlfriend, Fran-
ziska Birkmann, drew a seven-
year prison sentence for her par-
ticipation in the neo-Nazi leader's
unlawful activities.
The most serious charge for
which Hoffmann was found guilty
was causing bodily harm to
members of his neo-Nazi
paramilitary group. The incidents
took place while members of the
group were undergoing military
training in a Palestine Liberation
Organization camp in Lebanon.
THE NEWLY-OPENED Teacher Resource Center, under the
