Coming New Learning Building For Area Preschoolers ...
Brodzki Early Childhood Development Center
A sorely needed new learning center for pre-schoolers will soon be under construction
at the Samuel and Helene Soref Jewish Community Center, Perlman Campus. The Brod-
zki Early Childhood Development Center is the dream of many North Broward families
with pre-school age children. The JCC is a major beneficiary of the Federation/UJA an-
nual campaign.
The current prefabricated structures are bulging at the seams, with a waiting list that
grows longer. The Brodzki Center will provide a model environment in which children
ages two through five can develop social and school readiness skills.
"We have over 150 children attending our daily morning classes with some 100-200
attending our afternoon and enrichment programs," stated Phil Cofman, JCC ex-
ecutive director. "This new structure will not only provide the much needed space,
but it will also instill the philosophy to our youngsters that learning can be fan, as
well as educational."
Security is highly stressed by all those involved in this project, including JCC president
David Schulman.
"Security is our primary concern with all that is happening around us. With only one
main entrance to the new school, we will be able to ensure the parents that their
children's safety is being carefully watched over," Schulman stated.
The new Development Center is the dream of Peggy and Jacob Brodzki, who have
devoted their efforts to the unification of a Jewish community and the perpetuation
of Jewish ideals since they cane to Ft. Lauderdale in 1953. Jacob was co-founder of
Temple Beth Israel, founding chairman and past president of the JCC and past presi-
dent of the Jewish Federation of Greater Ft. Lauderdale. He currently serves as
Federation's chairman of the Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies as well as a

From Self-Evaluation to Sacred Exultation...
From Yom Kippur to the Feast of Sukkot
Director of Education
Yom Kippur, the most
sacred day of the Jewish
year, highlights above
all else a profound sense
of awe and anxiety, as
each Jew instinctively
feels that his very own
life is on trial.
The ultimate goal of
the Days of Awe is to
stimulate an evaluation
of one's life, a 'check-
up,' not physical or even
psychological in its
essence, but rather a
spiritual 'heshbon
hanefesh,' an accoun-
ting, not only of what
one has been, but even
more, what one could
truly be.
If the routinization of
life, the avoidance of
responsibility both per-
sonal and communal, the
deadly habituation that
envelopes daily living
lead to physic numbness,
it is the process of
"teshuva," repentence,
on Yom Kippur, that
responds with renewal
ana psychic rebirth. But
the process of teshuva
requires self-
examination, intense
concentration, and com-
munal reinforcement.
It is to enhance this
process that Yom Kip-
pur requires us to block
out all possible distrac-
tion. Even the very basic
elements of life food,
water, sexuality are
suspended. According to
the great sage,
Maimonide8, we enter,
rather, in the three ma-
jor steps of repentence:
1. Recognition and
confession of
2. Regret and reiect-
tion of that evil which
one has done.
3. A resolve and com-
mitment to a turning
way, to a new life, to
new actions, to new life
patterns, that reflect
authenticity, concern
and compassion.
Each element of the

those attending "The Event"
described the recent presentation

Sheldon 8. Polish
General Chairman
Calls For Unity
"The North Broward Jewish
Community has come of age."
That's what Sheldon S. Polish told
the Floridian in his first inter-
view as the new 1987 UJA general
"What that coming of age
means," he said, "is an opportuni-
ty to build unity. There was a time
when our area of Jewish com-
munities functioned independent-
ly. That day has passed. We are
now in a period of in-
terdependence when we can no
longer address problems in-
dividually. We must work
For it is only together that the
Greater Fort Lauderdale Jewish
comunity can find new ways of do-
ing things. That's important,
because each day our area is grow-
ing by leaps and bounds. They are
coming from all sections of the
country to settle in our 22 in-
dividual communities and the
needs are many and the facilities
and services are not enough.
Our young people are different
they don't see Judaism as a
burden or an affliction. They are
at home in America and at ease
with their Jewishness.
Because of that, there is the
possibility of "achieving a golden
period of Jewish life."
In 1987, our Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish family faces a
new challenge. We have to
achieve an ambitious goal in order
to compensate for contributions
which have been lost because of
deaths, we have to increase our
giving to help maintain local and
overseas services next year and to
meet new needs for our brethren
in Israel.
That's a challenge for our com-
munity and for each of us as in-
dividual givers.
Friday, October 10, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 3
Our Jewish family in North
Broward County, however, has
never walked away from a
challenge. We now have a reputa-
tion for coming through. That's
why we have come as far as we
have in such a short period of
Within the coming months, our
corps of volunteer workers led by
the men and women who compose
the new campaign cabinet wUl call
on the more than 150,000 men,
women and children in our area,
to help us meet this challenge.
Let us remember that family
has a special meaning for all of us.
For us, Jews everywhere are
family. We are constantly con-
cerned about the condition of our
worldwide family. That's the way
we are. That's the way we were
brought up. That's why no
challenge, no matter how difficult,
is too tough for us to tackle.
Our first order of business in
5747 is to keep our family strong
... our first resolution of the New
Year is to accomplish this through
a heartfelt gift to the Federa-
tion/UJA. We could ask no less for
our family!"

Dear Friends,
I would like to address to you an appeal: that you enlist your best
efforts to stimulate and encourage Jewish tourism to Israel.
Tourism is not merely another industry, and its importance does not
lie solely in its contribution to improving our balance of trade. Rather,
first and foremost, it is an act of Jewish identification. It is an act of
solidarity with the efforts to create and build a home for ourselves, here
in Israel. It is an act which teaches love for our historic land of our
We are engaged in building a state which draws its social rationale
from the ethics of our ancient prophets. We have always believed that Amos,
Micah and Isaiah strove to elevate and ennoble mankind before they
instructed the kings of Israel in the laws of government. They manifested
and preached social sensitivity -- even before they laid down the rites of
Divine worship.
Zionism never confined itself to carrying out those functions which
the Jews, as individuals, could perform but aspired to execute tasks
which only entire nations can accomplish. We have always held that basic
human needs have an inherent right to be satisfied. We have always believed
that the Jews have the absolute right to freedom from pain, from ignorance,
from insecurity, from injustice, and from homelessness.
From here, from Jerusalem, our eternal capital, we extend to you an
open invitation: come and see with your own eyes the building of our national
home a home of peace and of justice. Come and demonstrate the brotherhood
of the Jewish people, in the face of attempts to isolate us. Come, and
bring with you a host of fellow Jews -- who, upon their return, shall serve
as ambassadors of goodwill and inform the world, like Joshua the son of Njn
and Caleb the son of Jephuneh, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, that:
"The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceeding good land...
a land which floweth with milk and honey." (Numbers 14:7-8).

P*e4 TbJwiihriorkiijm Why is a Federation Mission Different
From All Other Trips to Israel?
The Difference is in What You
Get... on all other trips to Israel
you go as a tourist. You may ac-
cumulate souvenirs and miles of
film showing winding city alleys
and desert vistas dotted with
camels. In the final analysis,
maybe you had a better vacation
than last year when you went to
the island. Next year you may go
to Scandinavia ...
The Federation Mission ex-
perience will give you much more:
discovery, revelation, a sense of
self. It is an opportunity to see for
yourself what has been ac-
complished by the Jewish people
when their energy and resources
are used fully and creatively. It is
an opportunity to touch not cold
stones, but warm hearts ... an
opportunity to encounter the
reality of life in Israel today.
From the moment you meet
your Mission group at the airport
until you bid the L 'hit-ra-ot (until
we meet again), you will sense
common purpose and growing
identity ... and you wiB carry
your own heightened con-
sciousness with you for the rest of
your life.
"Won't I see the important
places of interest the 'must
sees' that have attracted
millions of visitors to Israel?"
Sure, you'll be able to compare
notes with your friends who may
have "done" Israel but you'll have
a lot more to share with them than
lists of landmarks and
restaurants. You're going to
witness a modern democratic na-
tion function. Your perspectives
will be through the eyes of its
citizens and its top leaders in
government, industry, education,
the arts, sciences and social
welfare agencies. When you stand
on the Mount of Olives and
witness the panorama of
Jerusalem spread at your feet,
you will see in your mind's eye

No Names in Lights
(Editor'8 Note: The following
was written by a member of the
Atlanta, Georgia Jewish Federa-
tion's Young Leadership.)
No one chases after them for
autographs. Multi-million dollar
contracts are not begging for
their signatures. Their names do
not appear in lights. They are not
household words.
But where would we be without
them the volunteers?
They are driven people. Home,
family, career, business and per-
sonal enjoyments are important in
their lives. But sometimes and
many times their valuable time is
devoted to other pursuits. They
make time they don't have to help
others and further causes while
others stare in amazement and
wonder where they find the time.
Volunteers are caring people.
They want to make the world a
better place for those here now
and those who will follow.
They like to be frustrated. It on-
ly makes them work harder. On
the one hand they are knocking
their heads against the wall while
on the other they are cajoling, en-
couraging, insisting, planning and
having brainstorming sessions.
Volunteers love meetings. They
are pacmanique: they devour
them. The run from one meeting
to another, morning, noon, night
and in-between. Sometimes they
go to more than one in an evening.
Some even try to attend two or
more at the same time, a feat even
David Copperfield would surely
They are planners and
schemers. They constantly are
putting ideas into operation in the
face of and against insurmoun-
table odds. Like Don Quixote,
they haven't found a windmill
they won't challenge.
Volunteers are habitual wor-
riers. Take the famous testimonial
-dinners as an example. The date,
place, menu, time, flowers, dress,
publicity, invitations, to name but
a few, all have to be planned and
coordinated. They just don't hap-
pen on their own.
And then when every detail
down to the dessert spoon is con-
sidered, somebody always comes
along and reminds of what has
been overlooked. Did we chose an
honree? What about that special
on TV which everyone has been
waiting to see? Is it the same
night? A sporting event that even-
ing? Did we double check the com-
munity calendar? Will people
come? Momentary panic ensues,
but everything magically works
itself out. The invitations are mail-
ed, sometimes in spite of the post
office, and nails are chewed to the
bone as prayers for a good
response are heard throughout
The night of the event arrives,
but the abdominal butterflies still
flutter, for it is now in the hands
of a higher being. Please no snow,
storm, tropical hurricane, power
failure, or worst, construction
work on the expressways. The
guests, oblivious to it all, arrive
for a delightful evening, speeches
are made, dinner is served, and
finally everyone departs. Now the
volunteers can take a deep breath
and collapse.
They are masochistic. Let us not
forget the task no volunteer really
enjoys: soliciting. Nobody likes to
ask somebody else for money. No
matter how many training ses-
sions on technique, it is still not
easy. Is there another way? The
volunteer fearlessly tackles the
phone or makes that personal visit
knowing that it has to be done.
No names in lights, no million-
dollar contracts, no autograph
seekers. Why do they do it? There
are wrongs to right, impossible
dreams to fulfill, and causes that
must be supported. Quoting Hillel,
the volunteer asks, "If not I, who
Just where would we be without
Yes, you can count on me in '87!

Florida, which in 1984
registered the largest gain in
Jewish population among the
Sunbelt states, yielded first place
in that category to Arizona in
1985, according to statistics
released in the American Jewish
Year Book, published by the
American Jewish Committee.
Florida had gained nearly
80,000 Jews, but last year the in-
crease fell to 11,500. Arizona,
which the year before added 4,000
Jews, noted an increase of 15,000
last year.
The Jewish population in the
United States in 1985 was
estimated to be 5.835 million, ap-
proximately the same as reported
for 1984.
In a foreword to the survey,
Jewish Population in the United
States, Alvin Chenkin, the Council
of Jewish Federations research
consultant, who prepared the
report, provides the following
comment on the 1985 figures:
"Based on recent studies, three
communities reported significant
changes from their 1984
estimates. Atlanta and Phoenix
showed increases: Atlanta from
33,500 to 50,000; Phoenix from
35,000 to 50,000. Philadelphia
lowered its estimate from 295,000
to 240,000. These changes, which
are reflected in the state and
regional totals, are part of the
continuing trend toward
geographical redistribution that
has been added over the past
decade. The Jewish population in
the Northeast is decreasing as a
proportion of the total Jewish
population, while the South's and
the West's proportions are
Despite the slowing of its rate of
percentage of gain in Jewish
population, Florida's total of
570,320 Jews by far exceeds
Arizona's 68,285, enabling
Florida to retain its standing as
the third-largest percentage con-
centration of Jews (5.2 percent) in
the nation, led only by New York,
1,915,145 (10.8 percentage), and
New Jersey, 450,570 (5.7
In the Southwest, Colorado,
with 48,565 Jews, was up more
than 4,000 while Texas, with
78,655 Jews, rose by less than
In the Southeast, Georgia
witnessed an increase from 42,155
to 58,657, although this rise was
attributed in some part to a revis-
ed study of the Atlanta Jewish
population conducted after an in-
terval of some years.
California was the second most
populous Jewish state in the U.S.,
with 793,065. Other states with
large Jewish populations were
Pennsylvania, 353,045; Illinois,
252,710; Massachusetts, 249,370;
Maryland, 199,415; Ohio, 138,935;
and Connecticut, 105,400.

When Will The World Be Safe?
Now Karachi, Now Istanbul and Next. ..?
Where will they strike next? When two madmen, said to repre-
sent Arab terror groups, invaded the Neve Shalom Synagogue in
Turkey on Sabbath and murdered 21 worshippers, mostly old
men, the world recoiled in horror. When another radical group of
terrorists killed innocent passengers in Pakistan, the world was in
shock. And so the story goes... pipe bombs in France, gunfire in
Holland, granade fragments in England. Spokesman for govern-
ments and organizations everywhere made noises of condolence
and regret, headlines blared throughout the civil world, but when
all was said and done, everyone once again distanced themselves
for these attrocities only to await the next horror. It was back
to business as usual!
History and experiences seem to tell us, however, that such ter-
ror has no "minimal" demands. Political goals of the PLO, of
Islamic Jihad are all maximal. The infidel must leave; all land
must be returned; Western influence must be eradicated this is
the nature of terrorist demands, and they are meaningless.
It is indeed time to stop the lip-service. It is time for Nations to
send the collective message to international terror that nothing
real can be gained for kidnapping or murdering innocents, that
there is no safe haven for hijackers, that a crime against in-
nocents, whatever their nationality, is a crime against all
And if they don't heed this message, then perhaps the right to
military retaliation should loom large in the near future. No
civilized person wants war and conflict, but on the other hand, we
all have the right to feel free and safe!
The Waldheim Postage Stamp
Did you know the United Nations is going to issue a postage
stamp showing the infamous Kurt Waldheim, and we all know his
many achievements during the Nazi regime.
But did you also know that during his ten years as United Na-
tions Secretary General, the number of UN employees from the
Soviet Union and East Europe increased 220 percent and the
number of UN staff of Jewish origin decreased 240 percent?
Did you also know that in 1977, when he was re-elected, he let
the PLO use the whole 39th floor in UN headquarters, which later
was removed in 1983 after his term was completed?
For his service to humanity, Kurt Waldheim received from the
United Nations a pension of more than $82,000, paid by us all.
Where indeed should our money go to help place the likeness
of a Kurt Waldheim on a stamp or to help the tens of thousands of
needy men, women and children around the world? You be the

The Jewish Federation/United
Jewish Appeal campaign for 1972
took on a whole new meaning for
the residents of North Broward
County. A large number of Jewish
immigrants from Russia arrived
in Israel, thus intensifying the
campaign efforts. Campaign
chairman Irving Weiser stated
that the immigration situation will
Sixteen members of the Gold
Coast Council BBYO joined with
other South Florida teens as par-
ticipants in the 1986 International
Junior Maccabi Games. Held Aug.
15-21 in Toronto, Canada the
Games attracted over 2,400 young
Jewish athletes (ages 12-16) and
coaches from throughout the
United States, Canada, Israel,
Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela,
Chile and Australia. Competition
was held in a variety of sports
such as softball, volleyball, soccer,
basketball, track and field, tennis,
swimming and gymnastics. In ad-
dition to four days of athletic com-
petition the participants engaged
in a variety of social, cultural and
religious activities and had an op-
portunity to interact with other
young Jews from throughout the
The South Florida contingent,
totalling over 675 athletes and
coaches, was co-sponsored by the
Michael Ann Russell Jewish Com-

During the weekend of Sept.
19-21 over 50 of the B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization's top
Regional, Council and Chapter of-
ficers from throughout the state
of Florida gathered in Plantation
to conduct the Region's annual
Fall Executive Meeting. The
weekend included a variety of
social, religious and educational
activities. For instance, the youth
will be participating in Friday
evening services at the Ramat
Shalom synagogue and will con-
duct their own creative services
on Saturday morning. And on
Saturday night they will join with
other members of the local area
for an Ice Skating Night at the
Sunrise Ice Rink. Along the way
the youth will also hold meetings
and discussions to steer the course

The Women's Division, under the
chairmanship of Mrs. Donald Mit-

for UJA. The women also held a

Jewish Federation of Greater
Ft. Lauderdale The Mission of
Federation/UJA Campaign
The 1987 Federation/UJA Campaign is the primary
instrument of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Jewish
Community for support of programs and services for
Jews in North Broward County, Israel and overseas.
The objectives of the campaign are to solicit gifts; to
provide leadership in stimulating community fund-
raising performance; to engender good will towards
Israel, world Jewish communities and the organized
North Broward County Jewish Community; to provide
information about campaign beneficiary programs and
to allot funds for overseas needs and their regular,
timely collection and transmission. The campaign also
provides an organizational framework within which
members of our Jewish community may contribute
their time, energy, knowledge and money for the com-
mon good. The campaign is a medium for recruitment
and training of Jewish leadership: a means of
strengthening Jewish tradition and responsibility: and
a testing ground for new ideas and methods for sus-
taining Jewish institutions.
For more information please write or call Federa-
tion/UJA Campaign headquarters at 8358 W. Oakland
Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33321, phone
Joseph Novick, Samuel Soref, and
many others.
In April of 72, the Federation
went into Phase II of the UJA
campaign. An unprecedented
number of immigrants continued
to arrive in Israel.
The Jewish Federation of North
Broward County also received na-
tional recognition in 1972. The
Federation was cited as one of
eight Federations who surpassed
last year's totals out of 100
Federated communities.
To close out the intensive 72
campaign, a telethon was held the
week of May 7-14. One hundred
and twenty men and women man-
ned phones to reach out to the
community on behalf of Israel's
needs, national and our local
Since the beginning of the year,
almost 9,000 Jews have arrived in
Israel. The campaign total recall-
ed $850,000 and contributors are
urged to expedite their cash
payments to meet the needs of the
new settlers in Israel.
Closing out the year was the an-
nouncement of a new Executive
Director of the Federation, Irving
L. Geiser.
Jewish Family Service, a major
beneficiary agency of the Federa-
tion, also celebrated its 10th an-
niversary in 1979 and continued
to provide much needed services
and programs to the residents of
North Broward County.

Converts In Israel
In recent months, the Israeli Ministry of the Interior has in-
dicated that it intends to stamp the word "convert" on the identi-
ty papers of Israelis who became Jewish by conversion. This pro-
cedure would fly in the face of Jewish tradition which urges us not
to remind the convert of his former status. It could be interpreted
as suggesting that there are classes of Jews or that we are
something other than one people. This abhorrent practice must
not be adopted.

last Thursday (Sept. 25). A
military spokesman said the
target was an encampment
of El Fatah, the mainstream
terrorist group of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization loyal to Yasir
The spokesman said the tented
camp was in a wooded area far
from civilian centers. It was heavi-

teries but none was fired at the
Israeli planes, he said. Beirut
Radio reported that three Israeli
planes carried out the bombing
while three others flew over at a
higher altitude.
THE ATTACK was the second
Israeli air raid on south Lebanon
in three days and the sixth in
September. Last Tuesday, Israeli
jets bombed the bases of the
Popular Front organization and
the dissident PLO faction headed
by Abu Musa, Arafat's rival.
Meanwhile, the Israel Defense
Force denied Beirut reports of
heavy exchanges of fire between
Shiite Moslem groups and the

Publicity Chair
Alvera A. Gold
Lackj Ladj
Minneapolis, one of the most
beautiful resort cities in the coun-
try, was also the most anti-
Semitic. Although she never per-
sonally experienced anti-
Semitism, for Alvera Gold grow-
ing up meant explaining Judaism
to her friends, many of whom
were not Jewish. If she brought
the same energy to that task as
she does to all her other projects,
Minneapolis can now claim to be
much better informed. Indeed, to-
day (lie Minneapolis Jewish com-
munity of 22,000 raises $11
million for Federation.
Every Thanksgiving when she
was a child, Alvera and her father
walked to the church to par-
ticipate in a non-sectarian service,
even though they were staunch
synagogue members and their
home was orthodox. Her mother
was a typically European Jewish
woman who taught her daughter
the value of quiet diplomacy. To
Alvera it sounded as if her
mother's voice had never been
raised to give an order or ask a
favor, much leas to express anger.
The family friends were both Jews
and non-Jews from all walks of
life. These early lessons paid off,
for today she has many good
friends in all parts of the country
and of all faiths. They partake of
her Seders and share in her joy in
supporting her favorite projects
such as Kfar Saba and the Jewish
National Fund. Because her fami-
ly was religious and less than af-
fluent, Alvera considered herself
a "JCC kid." The nearby Jewish
Community Center was the
playground for a Jewish girl grow-
ing up in a city of non-Jews and
she has always been grateful for
the home she found there.
Many years later, after she mov-
ed to Florida, "in order to meet
the nicest people," she would join
the local Jewish Community
Center and she would also write a
check for Federation. She has
been very glad to have done so.
Her support of the Women's Divi-
sion of the Fort Lauderdale
Federation has been ongoing ever
since. It is her fervent belief that
all women owe it to themselves to
make their own commitment In
her own words, "Almost 25 years
ago, back in Minneapolis, when I
gave my first check to Women's
Division, I became a woman in my
own right with my own stan-
ding in the community. I believe
strongly in two card giving for
many reasons ... it is wonderful
to be Mrs. Erv Gold... but it's
just as wonderful to be Alvera
Gold. I love my husband, and I
respect him.. and he respects
that I want to be recognized in my
own name. Women must realize
that they make a difference. Each
person counts. Even if the sum is
small, it really adds up. None of us
started as big givers, we each
count as an individual."
Alvera has worked all her life.
beginning her first babysitting
jobs at 13. Today her total com-
mitment is to the Jewish com-
munity; locally, in Israel, and
worldwide. She truly believes
herself to be very lucky and has
declared, "You can take anything
you want from life, but you must
pay for it. I feel very lucky that I
am not the one who is needing,
therefore, I shall go on giving just
as long as I can. No one will help
Jews except Jews. Therefore it is
our responsibility to help one
another." This sense of Jewish
responsibility has been passed
from parents to children for
generations. Alvera's daughter
and her Israeli husband are rais-
ing three wonderful sons in Min-
neapolis, in a very observant
household. Her married son and
daughter-in-law celebrated their
honeymoon, a few years ago, in
Israel with the Fort Lauderdale
community mission.
In a very special ceremony
recently, The Jewish National
Fund dedicated a playground
named the "Alvera Ackerberg
Gold Playground" in the Negev.
Last December, one of the most
successful JNF luncheons ever
held in South Florida honored
Alvera. It was a crowning
achievement for the woman who
first learned taedakah with the
This year Alvera is our
Women's Division Campaign
Chair. It is an undertaking that
she looks forward to with all of
her usual enthusiasm. She has in-
itiated some innovative ideas and
is sure to bring a positive spirit to
both Women's Division and to the
General Campaign. Many com-
munities will encourage two card
giving by families during the com-
ing campaign. This will mean a
woman's gift can go to Women's
Division and still be credited to
her home area, condominium or
community. There are also many
women of independent means, in
Greater Fort Lauderdale, who
perhaps do not realize that they
might take part in a Women's
Division. They would find many
activities to interest them, receive
invitations to various events,
make new friends, and also be
counted as Jewish women. It is
generally acknowledged that
when women pledge to support a
project, the job gets done.
Therefore a two-line card can only
help the overall Federation cam-
paign in reaching its ultimate
All of the Women's campaign
fund-raising programs for the
coming year are now in place. On
Nov. 19 and 20, Alvera is bringing
in Bobbie Klotz, a National Board
member, to do Workers Training.
For women whose Federation
commitment is at least $5000, the
"Lion of Judah" event chaired by
Gladys Daren and Florence
Straus will be held on Jan. 13 at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Levy. Their fascinating and ex-
tensive collection of Judaica will
be a highlight of the day. National
UJA Board member Matilda
Breilove has been invited. She is a
truly exceptional woman and will
be an extra special addition. The
"Ruby Ten" event, honoring
those women who give a minimum
gift of $10,000, will be held at the
home of Evelyn Gross who is plan-
ning a very special program. The
"Kol Ishah" day, chaired by
Susan Canarick, Roily Weinberg,
and Esther Wolfer, will be held on
Wednesday, Feb. 9. All women
whose pledge is at least $365 (a
dollar a day) will be able to attend.
Former Soviet refusenik Zoya
Leybin will be the guest of honor.
As a concert violinist who left
Russia in 1973 and worked ten
years to secure the release of her
daughter, Leybin has a
remarkable story to tell.
Alvera has visited Israel dozens
of times, so it is with a very
special point of view that she
highly recommends that women
go on Women's Division missions.
It is an experience that is much
different than either family or
community missions. On Oct. 29,
Alvera is planning to join me and
Esther Lerner on the National
UJA Women's Division Ruby Mis-
sion to Israel. Women from all
over the United States will spend
one week together, seeing what
Israel is today and what it can
become tomorrow. As the first
(and only) member of our com-
munity to serve on the National
Women's Division Board of UJA,
Alvera honors both our Women's
Division and Greater Fort
If someone wrote a song called
"I Left my Heart in Kfar Saba" it
would have to be about Alvera.
When one walks down the street
of the Project Renewal
neighborhoods of Yoseftal and
Kaplan, the name "Alvera" has
special meaning. With the electric
vitality and energy that
characterizes all of her enter-
prises she has made this city a
wonderful place for these Israelis
to live. As the Project Renewal
Chair for South Florida, Alvera
may feel she is "lucky," but in
Kfar Saba she is, affectionately,
"one of the family" to every fami-
ly that lives there. We, in Greater
Fort Lauderdale, are just as for-
tunate to have this energetic
woman as a community leader.
Condominium Chairmen
to be Honored Nov. 18
Samuel K. Miller, chairman,
and William Katzberg and David
Krantz, co-chairmen of the
Federation's Condominium
Cabinet, have announced that
over 95 dedicated and devoted
chairmen of the 1986 Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign, will be honored for their
hard work and diligent effort in
making last year's condominium
campaign so successful.
"These men and women are the
driving forces behind the suc-
cessful condominium campaign,"
Miller stated. "The Cabinet felt
that they deserve a little extra
thank you for all the time and ef-
fort spent last year. We hope that
these dedicated individuals will
continue their marvelous work on
behalf of Federation and UJA."
The awards ceremony will be
held at 10 a.m., Tuesday Nov. 18
at Temple Beth Israel, 7100 W.
Oakland Park Blvd., Sunrise.
Miller stated that this awards
ceremony will serve as a cam-
paign kick off for the Con-
dominium Division of the 1987
Federation/UJA campaign.
Guest speaker will be Al Effrat,

The Madies of Toulon
A Visit With a Sephardic Jewish Family in France
Editor'8 Note: Muriel Haskell is
Public Relations director at
Samuel and Helene Soref Jewish
Community Center. She recently
returned from a visit with her
"mahutin," her son's wife's
parents. This is her account of
French Jewish life as witnessed
Monsieur Charles Madie and his
wife Madame Marcelle live in
Toulon, a medium-sized port city
between Marseilles and Cannes on
the southern coast of France. One
of the estimated 700 Jewish
families living in the Toulon area,
they are natives of Morocco, of
Sephardic origin, and have lived in
France about 25 years.
"Before the sixties, many of us
lived in the North African Coun-
tries, says Mme. Madie, "but to-
day we know that there are only
1,000 of us left in Algeria and
maybe 1,800 in Morocco."
For 400 years, these countries
were among those hospitable to
the Sephardic Jews of Spanish
and Portuguese extraction who
had been expelled at the end of the
15th century. Now, in modern
times, these Jews have ac-
complished another mass reloca-
tion from North Africa to
France, where there are now
800,000 Jews. Most live in and
around Paris.
The Jewish families in Toulon
are mostly Sephardic. There is on-
ly one temple which is Orthodox,
like most of the synagogues in
France, but its doors are open to
Jews of all affiliations.
The Madie family spends its
summer in a villa in Mar-Vivo, a
40 minute ride from Toulon. My
son, Jonathon, a young conductor
who plays double-baas with
Geneva's Orchestre Romande, is
married to their daughter, Moni-
que, and has two daughters,

which covers an area from

Doron Erel, 27, a geologist from

vacations here at the villa, a

typical French Mediterranean
styling and a huge walled-in
garden. The charmingly furnished

Great-grandmother Madame
Etoile Sayag, with the aide of
translators, said, "The migration
of the North African Jews to
France in the sixties was easy for
those of Algerian descent who
were granted French citizenship
when they were bom by virtue of
the 'Cremieux Decree.' The
decree was written into French
law to honor Adolph Cremieux, an
Algerian Jew who was France's
Minister of Foreign Affairs dur-
ing the Second French Republic.
The French Sephardic Jews are
extremely supportive of Israel.
Only four hours away, they travel
there for vacations, building and
buying homes, if they can afford
it. Both men and women join
together to participate in a varie-
ty of fund-raising organizations in
France. The women of Toulon
work hard for VISO, a group
which supports needy and han-
dicapped Israeli children, and
open their homes to run affairs
and dinners, constantly looking
for new members to join them.
There are different North
African and French specialties for
midday dinner and the 9 p.m. sup-
per is served in the garden.
Marketing is done everyday for
bread and fresh vegetables and
fruits. Elaborate preparations are
made for parties with a variety of
sweet pastries and coffee or mint
tea, which is a favorite beverage
enjoyed by the Sephardim. After-
wards, hors d'ouevres of all types
are served. The area is semi-arid
and rain is seldom a worry, so ser-
ving outdoors is never a problem.
There are no mosquitos or flies
and only wooden shutters cover
the windows.
The Sephardic Jews of Morocco
knew no Yiddish or even Ladino
which was the Jewish dialect of
those who settled further east in
the lands of the Turkish Empire
400 years ago. The Jews of Moroc-
co spoke Arabic. Although chop-

Redman Tells
Why U.S.
State Department has stressed
that the problems of security in
south Lebanon cannot be solved
by extending the authority of the
United Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL) to the Israeli
border or by "any resolution pass-
ed" by the United Nations Securi-
ty Council.
State Department deputy
spokesman Charles Redman made
this point in explaining why the
United States abstained Tuesday
(Sept. 23) when the Security
Council adopted a resolution call-
ing on Israel to withdraw its trops
from south Lebanon and allow
UNIFIL to move to the border.
"We believe that stability for
south Lebanon and security for
Israel's northern border can only
come through measures agreed on
by all the parties to the conflict,"
Redman said. 'The call for the im-
mediate deployment of UNIFIL
to the border, in the absence of
such measures, is not realistic and
will solve none of the underlying
problems of instability and lack of
central authority which plagues
south Lebanon."
Redman added that UNIFIL
has "the potential to contribute
significantly" to the two major
goals supported by the U.S.
"the return of the effective
authority of the Lebanese govern-
ment to southern Lebanon and the
withdrawal of all foreign forces
from Lebanon." But he stressed
that these goals cannot be achiev-
ed by UNIFIL without an agree-
ment first by the parties involved.

She majored in Speech and
Theater, earned her BA, and later
taught Written English to the
foreign born in the college's Adult
Education program. The Land-

DR. STANLEY Margulies, Chief of Radiology at Hollywood

American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, ad-
vises that the University has a Center for Health Sciences which
marks a dramatic departure from the traditional concept of an in-
stitution for medical education. The main purpose of Ben-
Gurion's Center for Health Science is to train medical students
for service in developing communities, as primary care and
general physicians.
NAAM, the North American Aliyah Movement, sponsors two-
week fact-finding seminars to Israel, for people considering
aliyah. These two-week 'tours' offer the participants the oppor-
tunity to "see the real Israel: the Israel of everyday life and not
the tourist resort." The program is an intense and intriguing ex-
amination of the practicalities and realities of Israel; the
pleasures and pains of everyday living in the Jewish State. For in-
formation contact NAAM at (212) PL2-0600.
MORE THAN 600 Israeli girls and women will benefit this year

Hebrew Day School Student Receives Letter From Soviet Twin
Shira Caswell, 13, heard about
the idea of twinning through her
school, the Hebrew Day School of
Fort Lauderdale. She immediate-
ly contacted the Federation so
that she may get a name of a
Soviet youngster who would share
her Bat Mitzvah celebration with
her, since Soviet Jews are denied
the freedom to practice their
In June, Shira sat down and
wrote to Olga Ioffe in Leningrad,
USSR. By her biography Shira
received from Federation, she
knew that Olga was her age, that
she had a stepbrother and a sister
and that Olga's family was denied
a visa to emigrate in 1971 because
Olga's stepfather "knew alleged
secrets at his place of employ-
ment." Olga and her family were
again denied in 1981 because, "in-
sufficient kinship in Israel."
Not knowing anything else
about Olga, Shira decided that it
would be best to describe her life
in the United States. She wrote
about her Bat Mitzvah, which took
place on August 23 and how she
would be celebrating it for Olga.
She also described her studies at
the Hebrew Day School, where
she has been a student for eight
She wrote about her cat, her in-
terest in softball and baseball and
her dance lessons she attends
once a week. She also described
her family stating that she is an
only child and that Olga can be the
younger sister she never had.
Shira also sent her warmest
wishes to Olga's family and hopes
that she would be able to meet
Olga in the future.
About two months after Shira
sent the letter, she received a let-
ter from Olga.
"I was so excited that she wrote
Shira Caiweli
back," Shire said. "I was afraid
that the Soviet government would
not let my letter through."
Olga, who knows both English
and Hebrew, wrote back to Shira
in English. What surprised Shira
most was that Olga used three dif-
ferent colors of ink purple, red
and green and also drew an il-
lustration at the end of the letter.
Olga's letter mentioned nothing
of her life in the USSR. It con-
gratulated Shira on her Bat Mitz-
vah and expressed joy at the
celebration. Olga also asked Shira
to send her more information on
the Bat Mitzvah. Olga wished
Shira and her family health and
happiness and signed the letter,
"Your twin, Olga."
"I think that it is very impor-
tant for all kids who are becoming
B'nai Mitzvah to write to a twin,"
Shira stated. "This way they
know we're thinking about them."
At Shin's Bat Mitzvah, she
made a speech about Olga and the
significance of twinning. Her Rab-
bi also discussed the subject
twinning and Soviet Jewry.
"My friend Olga is being put
through such a hard time that the
least we in America could do, is
write letters to refuaeniks so they
won't give up hope."
Also enclosed in Olga's letter to
Shira was a postcard of the Palace
of Culture in the Ukraine.
"I plan on calling her in the near
future. If that doesn't work, I'll
keep writing and maybe one day
visit her in the Soviet Union."

mation on twinning, contact

Tourism In Israel
We call on Federations and all organizations in the North
American Jewish community; we call on individual Jews
throughout North America now more than ever to plan visits to
Israel. A massive increase in tourism can be one of the signs of
North American Jewry's continued solidarity with Israel. Such an
increase can demonstrate that the enemies of Israel will not dic-
tate our behavior and it can be a boon to Israel's recovering
economy. The coming year marks the 20th anniversary of the
unification of Jerusalem; it is also the Centennial of the birth of
David Ben-Gurion. Therefore, "this year in Jerusalem" should be
a goal for all of us.

To Build and Be Built
They live as a group, cooking
their own meals and sharing in the
chores, but they are not a kibbutz.
They are excavating old ruins, but
they are not archeologists,
because they are rebuilding the
ruins for present-day use. They
spend half a day studying
Judaism, history, Hebrew, tradi-
tions, but they are neither a
yeshiva nor a school.
What they have in common is a
desire to get to their Jewish roots;
some out of intellectual curiosity,
some in a search for the meaning
of existence. All of them are
university students or graduates,
hence the standards are high. All
of them engage in the physical
reconstruction of ancient and
ruined parts of the city of Safed.
The essence of the Jewish ex-
perience has always been a com-
bination of work and education.
The object of "Livnot
U'Lehibanot" is to combine this
concept of work in Israel with a
Jewish studies program. It is
presented in a mature at-
mosphere, to build the State of
Israel. This program, which is
self-sustaining, is the only one of
its land in Israel. It deals with
young people who want to find out
about their Jewish heritage.

The Future of the Jewish People: Jewish Demographics
The Problem: The Jewish
population in the diaspora, in-
cluding the United States, is
steadily declining, for cultural and
biological reasons. This of course
comes on top of the terrible
tragedy of the Holocaust.
Demographers differ, but even
the most moderate are not op-
timistic about diaspora Jewry,
while the pessimists are speaking
of biological suicide.
Israel's leading demographer.
Professor Roberto Bacchi, has
just reported to the government
that quite aside from the inroads
made by assimilation, the rate at
which Jewish couples in the
diaspora produce children has
fallen below replacement levels.
The demographic unit of the In-
stitute for Contemporary Jewry
presented the following figures
for Diaspora Jewry:
1939 16,155,000
1945 10,392,000
1985- 9,500,000
The same demographers project
fewer than eight million Jews in
the diaspora by the year 2000.
Is it really as bad as all that?
There is another school of thought
(American demographers Sidney
Goldstein, Alvin Chenkin and
Gary Tobin) who are less
pessimistic, though they do not
differ radically from Israeli
A second group of American
demographers (Steven M. Cohen
and Calvin Goldscheider) suggest
that at least in the USA there is
no actual decline. They concede
that the birthrate is low but sug-
gest that it is now better than at
its worst period. (Fifteen years
ago it was only 1.5 children per
couple for the generation of 1968,
far below replacement levels.
They say that now it is 2.1 per
couple.) Their figures are based
upon a 25 percent intermarriage
rate in America, and they expect
Jews to gain about half the offspr-
ing of intermarriages. With con-
versions to Judaism, they believe,
the population is now holding its
own or even showing a slight
Demography is not an exact
science; figures are often hard to
come by. For instance, the Soviets
probably undercount Jews and
many Jews probably "pass" as
members of other groups. It is dif-
ficult to find the facts even where
government is cooperative.
FT LAUD 776-6272
In the United States, prediction
is troublesome because we know
little about the long range effects
of intermarriage. What will hap-
pen when the children of inter-
marriage are old enough for mar-
riage themselves? We don't know.
It is worth noting that births are
very high among the ultra-
Orthodox. Families in that
category are having between
seven and ten children each. They
represent only about five percent
of World Jewry, but they will
therefore be a high percentage of
whatever growth we do have.
Families that might be classified
modern Orthodox tend to have
between three and five children.
It has been suggested that the
organized Jewish community
could encourage young couples to
have more children by assisting in
covering costs of Jewish educa-
tion, day schools, summer camps
and the like. One paradoxical
aspect of that is that the organiz-
ed Jewish community would end
up by subsidizing Jewish educa-
tion for Orthodox families.
In sum: if the present trends
continue, it appears likely that
there will be an overall decline of
the Jewish population in the
diaspora and a sizeable increase in
the percentage of Orthodox
Jewry. If Professor Bacchi's
predictions are correct, by the
year 2010, Israel will be the
largest Jewish community in the
world, not as a result of aliyah,
but by decline of the diaspora.

Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
-^cpfiing ewd. SEtje WouMsk:

Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
The changes challenges ... and
developments of this, the 19th year in
the life of our Federation have
demonstrated the wisdoms of our
From a group of some 300 men and
women living on Fort Lauderdale's
East side in the fifties, came the
beginnings of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale and the
Federation/United Jewish Appeal
And yes, we have come a long way
in such a short time, our community
has joined together in a Federation
which now raises funds efficiently,
and provides central planning, coor-
dination, and permits us to adapt to
problems and programs which our
founders never dreamt of 19 years
ago. When the official organization
began, those community leaders led
by Ludwik Brodzki, the first Federa-
tion president, developed a system
strong enough to last through war
and peace, depression and prosperity
and wave after wave of immigration.
We may have been a young fledging
star on the national Federation/UJA
horizon, but all our systems were
flexible enough to confront both the
old reliable programs with the
modern day progress made available
to us.
Who among these first groups of
leaders imagined that a day would
come when our community would
consist of a geographically
widespread area composed of some
22 Jewish communities in North
Broward County?
Who among that group of dedicated
Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach
and Margate Jews who came
together in 1967, to commit
themselves to raise $50,000 at the
Israel Emergency Fund Rally, would
have dreamed that in 1986, $6.1
million would be raised to help our
brethren here in our own community,
in Israel and in more than 33 lands
around the world?
We are growing, both demo-
graphically and progressively.
Our local agencies and beneficiaries
are faced with increased costs and
challenges. There have been some
new and innovative changes in the
past year, and more to come. Among
these have been the groundbreaking
for the David Posnack Hebrew Day
School Building on the site of the
Samuel and Helene Soref Jewish
Community Center on the Perlman
Campus, and the JCC new building
housing the gymnasium and activities
Vitally concerned with the needs of
our growing elderly population,
Federation Housing, Inc., under the
co-chairmenship of Daniel Cantor and
Leo Goodman, are finalizing plans for
a 122 unit apartment adult con-
gregate living facility in Sunrise, ap-
proximately half of which will be sub-
sidized full or in part by the Federa-
tion, complete with dining facility,
nurse on premise and maid service.
Vitally concerned with the welfare
and the needs of our fellow Jews in
Israel and around the world, our
Board of Directors have unanimously
agreed to send $3,321,000 or more
than 52 percent of the Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal campaign
gross to aid in the file-saving, life-
giving work performed by the cam-
paign's leading agency. This amount,
which is based on raising at least
$6.35 million in the '87 campaign, will
be the largest dollar amount ever
sent from our Federation.
We can all be very proud of the
many wonderful things we have
achieved as a Federation and as a
community. We have much to
celebrate in our past, and by examin-
ing how our community has progress-
ed to reach this point, we can realize
even greater achievements in the
years to come.
During 1986, we have made signifi-
cant progress toward meeting both
the human service needs locally, in
Israel and around the world. We have
taken great strides forward in every
area of Jewish life, Jewish education,
care for the elderly, social develop-
ment programs for our youth and
cultural and community awareness
programs to name a few. We con-
tinually strengthen our partnership
with the State of Israel and we have
built bridges which span the full spec-
trum of the Jewish experience in
North Broward County and wherever
Jewish life flourishes.
We now begin another'year. We
welcome the new Board members
and new Committee members to this
fascinating work. Your Officers and
Board thank all of you for your sup-
port of Federation and the UJA cam-
paign in the year just past and ask
you for even greater support in the
year ahead.
BRIAN J. SHERR, President
As we begin a new year at the
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale we all can be very proud
about our stunning accomplishments
over the past 19 years, and if I were
to attempt to chronicle all of them it
would seem inconceivable that all
could have been achieved in such a
relatively short period of time.
Within the past year our Federa-
tion added to its proud legacy by help-
ing more people than ever before.
Our achievements in 1985-86 are the
results of the efforts of our communi-
ty leaders and corps of dedicated
volunteers, all of whom are commit-
ted to meeting the essential needs of
the Jewish people here in Greater
Fort Lauderdale, in Israel and
worldwide. During 1986 our appeal
received an unprecedented response.
Through the jrenerositv of our com-
munity, the Federation/UJA received
a record $6,104,000 with $238,000 for
Project Renewal-Kfar Saba.
The dollars that we raised are just a
single measure of our community's
concern for the continuing welfare of
our people. There is so much more
that we do which simply cannot be
represented in dollars and cents. The
traditions that we cherish, the
heritage that we hold so dear, is per-
sonified in every one of us.
Through the efforts of Federation's
leadership, we will look to meet the
challenges of Jewish life over the
next decade through our newly
established Long Range Planning
Process and Budgeting and Planning
We have always been very proud of
our Women's Division. In addition to
achieving a record campaign with
gifts totaling in excess of $1,100,000,
the Women s Division continuously
offers quality programs through high-
caliber leadership. These innovative
programs help communicate Federa-
tion s vital mission.
The Community Relations Commit-
tee educates our Jewish Community
and the general public on a number of
critical issues including Soviet Jewry,
a major thrust this year.
We have come a long way this year
in meeting the needs of our Jewish
elderly. In addition to our highly suc-
cessful Kosher Nutrition Program
and Gathering Place, Federation
Housing Inc., a major beneficiary of
Federation has recently purchased
land in Sunrise to build our adult con-
gregate living facility which will con-
tain housing and senior service pro-
grams. The Federation has also ap-
plied for a HUD 202 grant for sub-
sidized housing for the elderly.
Another source of pride for our
Federation has been the ambitious
programming oriented toward future
leaders for the Jewish Community of
Greater Fort Lauderdale. Our
Business Executive Network, Young
Professional Group, and Fast Track
Leadership Development are but a
few of the programs of our new
Human Resource Development
The Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies also plays a vital role in shap-
ing the future of our community with
its assets of over $2.5 million. The
Foundation offers individual unique
opportunities to help meet a wide
variety of Jewish needs which might
otherwise not have received support.
Our Foundation through prudent and
fiscally sound investments, has
charted a course which will provide
our Jewish community with a signifi-
cant resource as we prepare for life in
the 21st Century.
We must remember that an oppor-
tunity to give is also an opportunity
to receive. What we receive is
reassurance that we have met our
obligation to sustain a life which is
dignified for all Jews. It is a simple
premise, and it is one which is a prin-
cipal tenet of the Federation
philosophy. Our collective sense of
commitment to each other truly
defines us as a community of Jews
which prospers greatly in a spirit of
My best wishes to all of you in the
year ahead.
Executive Director

Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdaie
Your Federation
The Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdaie, the "central
address for our North Broward
Jewish community," is ready to help

and spiritual needs. As a
community, we bond together for
the fulfillment of these needs, linked

and well-being of the Jewish people.
Federation plays an integral part
in this system, providing a central
address where the needs of the
individuals and the means for
fulfilling those needs come together

Through the committee system
and the organizational structure,
Federation aims to bring together a
large and diverse cross-section of
the Greater Fort Lauderdaie Jewish
community so all of its segments
may be accurately and appropriately
represented and served.
Federation is in the people-helping
business. And that business takes all
of us, working together for the
survival and growth of our Greater
Fort Lauderdaie Jewish community
and our community of Jews
throughout the world.

By creating an endowment or
philanthropic fund, you become one
in spirit with past generations of
Jews whose generous gifts are
today's legacy and with future
generations who will carry the
hopes, dreams and faith forward to
endless tomorrows.
This year, through the diligence
and perseverance of Foundation
Chairman Jacob Brodzki, two
outstanding philanthropic gifts were
presented to help perpetuate the
great heritage of the Jewish people.
Through the generosity of the
Joseph and Esther Kroman Fund
and the Gerald and Lorraine
William Irrevocable Charitable
Remainder Annuity Trust, the lives
and well-being of Jews here in our
community, in Israel, and around
the world will have improved.
Under the direction and guidance
of past Foundation Chairman Libo
Fineberg, who acted as executor for
the Kroman Estate, a designated
area of the will specified that
$100,000 be used for the specific
purpose of providing aid and funds
for the currently planned Home for
the Elderly. The allocation will help
enable the Jewish Federation and
the Committee for Jewish Elderly to
provide a critically needed facility in
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Concerned with the continuity of
vital Federation services, Gerald
and Lorraine William provided the
Foundation's largest trust. The
$700,000 gift will pass on to the
Foundation, following the
beneficiary's death, which will not
only provide for a solid foundation
for the community, but will ensure
that the Federation will have a
strong financial base to continue to
support the programs, agencies, and
at the same time have a source of
emergency funds.
The Kroman and the William
gifts two examples of
philanthropic generosity and
heartfelt commitment to guarantee
the traditions and the institutions
which we now cherish and will
thrive for generations to come.
When an individual or company
makes an enduring contribution to
the community, it's worth special

The assets of the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies are managed
by the Investment Committee,
which recommends policies needed
to achieve the Foundation's financial
objectives. The committee follows
the rule that a "prudent fiduciary"
must be exercised in selecting
investments, and it has been
successful in maximizing income
while maintaining the safety of
principal values.
Over the last year, the
Foundation's Women's Committee
has conducted a number of special
programs for women including a
financial seminar featuring speakers
on financial planning and
investments. Another significant
event has been the expansion and
restructuring of the Foundation's
Legal and Tax Committee.
The Foundation continues to be
grateful for the participation of
many talented people in the
community who contribute through
various committees to the growth
and management of the Jewish
community's endowment fund.
