Central Agency for Jewish Education Serves
Greater Fort Lauderdale Jewish Community
Early childhood youngsters ... children in Sunday, Hebrew, or Day School classes
. .. teenagers in the Judaica High School or youth organizations ... young adults,
families, senior adults .. teachers, principals, educational directors, communal workers,
scholars and laymen The Central Agency for Jewish Education of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale serves them all!
In its role as the educational arm of the Jewish community, in its functions as
consulting, coordinating, operating and servicing all types of programs in the North
Broward community from east to west and from Da vie to Deerfield Beach, CAJE is
the central address of Jewish education in Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Its lay leadership is headed by Paul Frieser, chairman of the Committee on Jewish
Education of the Jewish Federation. The committee is comprised of community in-
dividuals, representatives of schools and Jewish organizations, educators and Rabbis. It
determines the broad policies for the Agency, seeks out the unmet educational needs in
the community and recommends those programs that would fulfill those needs.
CAJE's professional staff is headed by Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson, Director of Educa-
tion; Sharon Horowitz, Judaica High School Principal and Teacher Center Director; and
Helen Weisberg, Administrator of the North Broward Midrasha Adult Education In-
stitute. In addition, the North Broward Community is served by ten other professionals

In The Jewish Holiday Spotlight...
Simchat Torah: Holiday Finale of Pure Joy
The festival of Sukkot
embodies an entire
gamut of essential
Jewish values the re-
enactment of the Ex-
odus from Egypt and
the Providence of the
Almighty in the wander-
ings in the desert; the
fragility of life and the
eternal protection of
God; the joining
together of history and
nature as reflected in
the symbolism and ac-
tuality of the Sukkah;
and the unity of the
Jewish people as seen
through the lulav and
etrog; and the love and
concern for the Land of
Israel and its
agricultural welfare.
ment of Sukkot, the
Scrolls are taken from
the Ark, singing, danc-
ing and joy reign
supreme, and the cycle
oi completing and
renewing of the reading
of the Torah is enacted
for another year.
As with every festival,
there are a variety of
laws and customs that
enrich and enliven the
profound happiness of
rejoicing with the Torah.
Yet the last day of the
holiday of Simchat
Torah places the love
and honor of the Torah,
and of study, at the very
climax of the festival.
After the week of fulfill-
evening ser-
vice is chanted as
parody, mixing the
solemn melodies of the
Days of Awe with
chants from both
liturgical and secular
music. All the Scrolls
are handed out and
seven ioyful processions
(Hakaiot) are held with
the children waving
flags, eating apples and
candy, and touching and
kissing the sacred Torah
On the day of the Sim-
chat Torah itself, the re-
joicing reaches new
heights. The Torah por-
tion is read again and
again, until each in-
dividual has received an
aliyah (honor). The
children gather together
under one tallit and
chant the blessings in
unison offering thanks
to God who chose us and
gave us the Torah, a

The Challenge Awaits Let's Heed The Call..
$7.2 Million Goal Announced in '87
In 1987, the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale has
announced a goal of $7.2 million
for the Federation/United Jewish
Appeal campaign, the largest
dollar achievement in the history
of the 19 year old organization.
The announcement, of special
significance to the entire North
Broward Jewish community, was
made at a campaign cabinet
meeting held last week at the
Radice Corporate Center in Fort
According to Sheldon S. Polish,
general chairman, "Our Federa-
tion/U J A campaign is the primary
fund-raising instrument for the
support of humanitarian pro-
grams and social services for Jews
here in our local community, for
our brethren in Israel and abroad.
Through these life-saving, life-
giving dollars raised, we
strengthen and establish a secure
and vital future for Jewish life
word wide."
Joining in the unanimous ap-
proval of the new goal with a vote
of confidence were the cabinet
members representing the major
divisions which included among
other areas, Oceanside,
Woodlands, Women's Palm-Aire,
Woodmont, Inverrary, Con-
dominiums, Plantation, Century
Village and Bonaventure.
Sharing in the united effort to
raise the record gifts for the
Jewish community's major philan-
thropy were general co-chairmen
Walter Bernstein, Woodmont;
Daniel D. Cantor, Woodmont;
Alvera A. Gold, Women's; Leo
Goodman, Woodlands; Victor
Gruman, Inverrary; Alan J. Levy,
Plantation; Mark A. Levy,
Builders and Developers; Irving
Libowsky, Palm-Aire; Steven
Lewin, Oceanside; Samuel K.
Miller, Condominium; Harold
Oshry, Woodlands; Joel Reinstein,
Plantation; John Streng, Ocean-
side; and Barbara K. Wiener,
"Vitally concerned with the
welfare of the tens of thousands of
Jewish men, women and children
in the Jewish homeland and in
more than 31 lands around the
world, the officers and board of
directors of the Federation have
already approved a record 52.3
percent for the United Jewish Ap-
peal allocation to Israel and
overseas," said Polish. "Now we
have to make that commitment
come true by mobilizing the more
than 150,000 Jews throughout the
22-area communities from Davie
to Deerfield Beach from A1A to
1-75, and make this allocation a
reality. Let us all heed the famous
words of the late David Ben-
Gurion who said, 'At the heart of
UJA work lies the concept of giv-
ing, not to charity, but to life.' In
1987, it will be to life for all, for
we are all one people, one

Condominium Division Revamps for 1987 Federation/UJA Campaign
The Condominium Division, the
newly adopted name for the con-
dominium areas of the Federa-
tion's annual United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign, has taken on a new
look for the coming year, accor-
ding to Condominium Cabinet
chairman Samuel K. Miller, and
co-chairmen William Katzberg
and David Krantz.
"This year we decided to try
something new for the con-
dominiums of North Broward,"
Miller stated. "In order so that we
may increase gifts as well as cut
costs, we decided to consolidate
and organize area-wide functions,
for example, all the condominiums
located in Plantation, Omega,
Lauderdale West, etc. will attend
a Plantation area-wide function.
This will help all our UJA
volunteers meet each other and
renew a sense of community."
Another new innovation is the
establishment of a $54 minimum
gift per family at these area-wide
functions. The motion was passed
at the recent Condominium
Cabinet meeting.
Miller pointed out that the area-
wide functions will not preclude
the successful parlor meetings
and special gifts events held in
specific areas. "We don't want to
eliminate all the functions in a
particular community," Miller
stated. "We just want to combine
many of the breakfasts that have
been held in previous years so that
residents will be able to mingle
with residents of other
Announcement was also made
of the Second Annual $500 Plus
Club Special Gifts Luncheon
which will be held on Dec. 3 at the
Inverrary Country Club.

A Spot for You
A Little Help...
Goes A Long Way
The volunteer's creed: I hall ascertain the problem. I shall
determine the objective. I shall perform the task, for I can do the
job. I' 11 just need a little help from the staff.
Let* > take the bicycle as a symbolic example. The volunteer
dead he wants to traverse the rock-strewn and treacherous
uphill course, and the bicycle seems the best way to do it. He,
which hereafter includes by implication "she," bops on and ped-
dles madly. His destination is just ahead. Suddenly, the front tire
explodes, unmistakeably signalling a flat Flustered, the
volunteer looks gloomily in all directions for help. Let's add a bur-
ning sun to make our volunteer particularly distraught. Like the
Lone Ranger, the staff comes to the rescue. They repair die flat,
brush off cheerfully the volunteer's bruised ego, provide a tuna
sandwich and a cold drink, and gently encourage him to continue
on his trip. Parenthetically, it was probably the staff who obtain-
ed the bike in the first place, had it readied for the trip, and en-
couraged the volunteer that it was the best way to meet the objec-
tive. Knowing what was ahead, they also likely made sure it was a
ten-speed and had a spare available just in case.
So who is staff? They are the professionals, who keep the agen-
cies and organization afloat. They likely have degrees in social
work. Some have even come from the ranks of the volunteers.
They perform the mundane, i.e. the jobs the volunteers loathe and
can sometimes be spotted cringing when mentioned. Included in
the infamous list is sending out announcements of meeting and
events, arranging the meetings, securing the location, ordering
the meals or other refreshments, typing up agendas and minutes,
making innumerable phone calls, and on and on ad infinitum.
Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 doldrums do not apply to staff. Meetings
and events are primarily planned to accommodate volunteers.
Since many work, evening programs and events are com-
monplace. Lunches for staff frequently mean sitting down with
Central Agency for
Jewish Education
volunteers. The room is reserved. The seats are set up. The food is
waiting. The volunteers arrive, generally oblivious to the bet that
someone, i. e. staff, was responsible for putting it all together.
The fact that the volunteer may take it all for granted is a compli-
ment to staff. He just expects that it will all be handled.
On the other front staff implements. The volunteers call for pro-
grams to help the family in economic crisis, the unemployed, the
sged, the handicapped, and those with what seem to be insur-
mountable problems. The list is endless. The volunteers meet,
discuss, review, argue with an underlying spirit of cooperation
and congeniality, and in the end set goals and objectives. And the
staff responds and sets the wheels in motion.
They must be dedicated. Volunteers are by no means the easiest
lot with whom to work. They can be difficult, obstinate and
downright impossible on occassions. Yet, the staff pamper, accept
any criticism, suggest, and then work to get the job done.
Dedication also is exemplified by a committment to a higher
goal: to improving the quality of life by helping those in need and
providing programs and events for the education and enjoyment
of the community.
Like the volunteer, society does not honor or appreciate the
staff enough. Misplaced priorities result in recognition and
economic rewards for those lucky enough to be born with certain
talents such as singing, dancing, and athletic skills. Undaunted,
the volunteer and staff trudge and press on, for theirs is a nobler
cause. In the end it is their achievements that will truly make the
world a better place. Let's hope there will always be those who
will accept the challenge, dream that impossible dream, right that
unrightable wrong, and help those desperate and sometimes con-
fused volunteers.

Judaica High School
What does CAJE do? On
a teen-age level, for exam-
ple, it operates the highly
successful Judaica High
School, with more than
250 students enrolled at
northern and central cam-
puses. Under the leader-
ship of Mrs. Horowitz, the
JHS provides a host of ac-
tivities for its students
that include academic,
social, informal and ser-
vice projects and pro-
grams. There is a five year
graded curriculum that
leads to graduation in 12th
grade; college credit
courses approved by
Broward Community Col-
lege and accepted at major
universities throughout
the country; student coun-
cil, student year book and
student newspapers; guest
speakers, dramatic pro-
grams and special trips;
the Akiva Leadership pro-
gram; and participation in
Super Sunday and Israel
Independence Day pro-
gramming. An exciting
program this past year was
the involvement of JHS
students in "The Quest," a
Jewish quiz program
televised on cable
throughout South Florida,
in which the students did
themselves proud.
In November a "College
Night" is held where
representatives from col-
leges with Jewish programs
or sizeable student bodies
are represented, together
with advisors who provide
an informative view of col-
lege life. The JHS is also in-
volved in drug and alcohol
programming as part of the
overall community task
force. In December, the
10-12th grade students will
participate in an intensive
Shabbaton weekend with
students from ail over South
Jewish Teachers Institute
For the synagogue and
day school programs CA-
JE concentrates its efforts
on courses, workshops,
seminars and consultation
for teachers and educa-
tional directors through
its Jewish Teachers In-
sf tut*. This year, for ex-
ample, it brought into the
community the Kohl
Jewish Teacher Center
from Chicago, and Bracha
Spectre, faculty member at
the Melton Center of the
Hebrew University, for
workshops prior to the
opening of the school year.
CAJE, through its
Board of License, certifies
teachers, provides the
courses and seminars
leading to licensing and
certification, and works
with the schools so that
the salaries and benefits
for teachers reflect such
certification. The Educa-
tional Directors of the
schools meet monthly to
plan cooperative pro-
grams, formulate stan-
dards for the schools, and
determine the thrust of the
teacher in service
Teacher Resource Center
The Teacher Resource
Center, directed by Mrs.
Horowitz, has been
established by grants from
the Federation. The Center
serves as a place where
teachers can come and ex-
amine all sorts of new and
creative materials related to
their curriculum, borrow
source materials, make
games and simulations, and
immerse themselves in new
ideas and programs. The
center also conducts
workshops in the individual
schools related to the
specific needs of each
classroom teacher. While
very much cramped for
space, the Teacher Center
has been a boon to the
religious school teachers of
the community.
North Broward Midrasha
With adults and senior
citizens forming so large a
percentage of the com-
munity's population, CA-
JE is highly involved in
adult education. The
North Broward Midrasha,
headed by Helen
Weisberg, conducts a
variety of programs to
meet the needs of the
widely variegated popula-
tion. Community Modern
Hebrew Ulpan classes are
conducted twice weekly
for two hours each at the
JCC, Temple Beth Israel,
Temple Beth Am and Tem-
Sle Beth Israel in Deer-
eld Beach. For those who
have excellent Jewish
backgrounds Bible and
Talmud study groups have
met fortnightly for the
past five years.
For those who love
Jewish books, a Jewish
Book Review Series is
held in cooperation with
the Broward County
Library System, where six
books are reviewed in each
of six libraries with promi-
nent educators, Rabbis,
laymen and scholars serv-
ing as reviewers. For the
total community, the
"Contemporary Issues of
Jewish Life" will begin its
seventh annual series ex-
posing the foremost
Jewish scholars and
leaders to more than 2,000
For the lovers of Israel
and Jerusalem, the annual
community "Yom
Yerushalayim" celebration,
held on the anniversary of
the re-unification of
Jerusalem, is an exciting
melange of study, song,
dance, film and commitment
to Jerusalem. For the in-
numerable Jewish organiza-
tions of the community who
constantly seek help from
CAJE for their own pro-
gramming, in addition to on-
Soing consultation, the
Lidrasha inaugurated its
SPICE (Special Programm-
ing for Innovative and
Creative Experiences)
workshop this past year
with over 60 represen-
tatives attending an all-day
Resources for the
CAJE is a resource for
Jewish communal agencies
as well. Its staff, both
those based in Miami as
well as in Fort Lauder-
dale, conducts sessions for
the Women's Division of
Federation, for the Young
Leadership, for Jewish
organizations, for the In-
verrary and Woodlands
cultural series, for the JCC
and for the sisterhoods
and Mens Clubs of the
local synagogues. Dr. Git-
telson will inaugurate an
inservice series on the
Jewish holidays with the
JCC Early Childhood staff;
a series of programs on the
Jewish Life Cycle for the
PM network of the
Womens Division; and an
on-going celebration of
Jewish holidays with the
Federation staff.
CAJE professionals offer
other services as well. Dr.

For Everything: There Is A
The simple logic of the New
Year beginning in this season,
rather than in the middle of
winter, is undeniable. Up north,
the leaves are turning color while
the heat of the summer is beginn-
ing to abate. In Florida, a certain
lethargy Is falling away with the
return of the snowbirds. The
wheels start moving again. All
over the world, we as Jews, take
stock of the past year and the pro-
mise of a new future is now
welcome. The kids go back to
school decked out in new clothes
with as yet unchewed pencils (or
do they all use computers now?).
Across the land, it is the start of a
new campaign.
We face challenges and have set
goals, in this year of 5747, that
were considered unthinkable just
a few years ago. In Greater Fort
Lauderdale, on the very first day
of our Women's Division cam-
paign for this year, we reached a
total of over $152,000. As respon-
sible Jewish women, we must be
aware of the up-to-the-minute
facts of Jewish survival as they
relate to the world, to Israel and
to our local community.
On October 8 at the 1986 UJA
Women's Division Training Sw-
ing, Esther Gordon, chairperson
of the Florida region, said, "We
women are the glue that holds
everyday life together. Israel is at
a turning point and the respon-
sibility for Jewish survival is in
our hands." Israel's continuance
depends on the development of a
well-trained and highly skilled
work force. Without an expansion
of its technological capacity,
Israel cannot keep pace in a world
constantly striving for new ven-
tures and developing
sophisticated machinery. Israel
needs us now to support the vital
expansion of rural settlements
where a large part of the im-
migrant population has been ab-
sorbed. Those 15,000 Ethiopian
Jews who arrived during "Opera-
tion Moses" have been integrated
into Israeli society and many now
reside in the newer rural
Over the last 38 years, our cam-
paigns have helped Israel
welcome over 1.8 million im-
migrants, including almost the en-
tire Jewish populations of Yemen,
Iraq, Iran, and Romania. These
newcomers from 102 different na-
tional cultures, brought with them
70 different languages. They
learned Hebrew and today con-
tribute advantageously to Israel's
social mix. Many of their young
people have attended Youth
Aliyah faculties and count among
the 'A million adults who are
Youth Aliyah alumni. They
presently hold positions of respon-
sibility throughout the entire
country. Our campaign provides
95 percent of the funds that help
support and enrich these Youth
Aliyah programs for both im-
migrant and Sabra children. The
Federation/UJA campaign con-
tributes to the American Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC)
which operates a network of social
welfare programs in 34 countries,
including Israel. In Latin
America, in Moslem countries,
and Eastern Europe JDC looks to
us for help each day. Without us
they cannot give the life-line of
contact and support to Jews
wherever they exist. Our cam-
paign also provides funding to our
local Jewish community through
ail of our local agencies such as
the Samuel and Helene Soref
Jewish Community Center and
the Jewish Family Service of
Broward County. As Esther Gor-
don said, "Each gift we give to the
campaign should be made with
three Jews in mind, the Jew at
home, the Jew in Israel, and the
Jew in other lands."
The mitzvah of giving tzedakah
is rooted in the Bible. When
Abraham made his covenant with
G-d, he agreed to a formal con-
tract which set the standard of a
shared future for thousands of
generations of Jews. G-d promises
that Abraham's descendants will
inherit the land of Israel and that
they will be as numerous as the
sands in the sea. The relationship
is reciprocal. Abraham is bound to
teach his children after him to act
in charity and justice, and his sons
must bear the sign of this cove-
nant, circumcision (Gen. 17:1-4).
This idea has been a living reality
for the Jewish community
through the past and present and
will certainly continue into the dis-
tant future. "It is the uniqueness
that makes the Jewish people
Jewish," says Gene Greenzweig,
Miami Executive Director of the
Central Agency for Jewish Educa-
tion (CAJE). "We can't be like
everybody else, a Jewish com-
munity that wants to be like
everybody else who lives around
them, will disappear. The very act
of caring for each other is what
makes us different. It is who and
what we are."
The Training Swing also includ-
ed several workshops. A solicita-
tion training was given by Mikki
Futernick, UJA National
Women's Division Board member.
Mikki brought some new and in-
novative ideas to the women pre-
sent. In our own community, we
shall explore some of those view-
points on November 19 when we
shall hold our own Workers Train-
ing Day. On that day Bobi Klotz, a
member of the National board,
will fly in from New York to share
her knowledge with us. Bobi is the
former chair of the Young
Women's Leadership cabinet and
has been an active member of
Women's Division for several
On October 6, the P.M. Network
held its first meeting of the new
season. The series is called "An
Exploration of Jewish Living A
Look At The Familiar and Un-
familiar." The Federation boar-
droom was full as Dr. Abe Git-
telson, Fort Lauderdale's CAJE
Director of Education, conducted
the discussion. The evening's
topic on Jewish birth rituals prov-
ed exciting and fascinating to this
group of women of all ages and
stages of life. Why was a cedar
tree planted in Israel when a boy
was born, and a cypress for a girl?
Do you know what a "wimple" is?
Selma Telles, chairperson of this
program, encouraged everyone to
participate in the discussion that
ranged from the ritual of lighting
Shabbat candles to the supersti-
tion of tying a red ribbon on a
baby's crib before the Brit. As the
scholar-in-residence, Abe freely
admits that traditional Judaism is
definitely male oriented. This is
obviously not the usual "one-
sided" interpretation of a
religious point of view. With the
humor and knowledge that
charactize all of his programs,
Abe answers as many questions as
he poses. The human being in the
Jewish concept of the world
becomes a co-creator with G-d by
the very act of creating the next
generation of human beings. As
daughters, wives, mothers, grand-
mothers, and independent in-
dividuals, we have a right and an
obligation to make ourselves
knowlegeable about every aspect
of life from a Jewish perspective.

Federation's Task Force on Jewish Alcoholism & Substance
Abuse Makes Tremendous Strides
The Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, along
with the other Gold Coast Federa-
tions, has formed a very viable
committee to finally deal with the
problem of Jewish Alcohol and
Substance Abuse.
Under the chairmanship of Fort
Lauderdale's director of Chaplain-
cy Services, Rabbi Albert
Schwartz, the Task Force has at-
tracted national attention and has
made great strides in combatting
the problem.
At a recent meeting, Marlene
Josefsberg, chairman of the
Governor's Commission on Drug
and Alcohol Concerns, praised the
community for addressing these
"It's wonderful to see that this
Task Force exists to heighten
awareness that the Jewish popula-
tion is not immune to the disease
of drug and alcohol misuse and
abuse," Josefsberg stated.
Also addressing the Task Force
was Dr. Delores Morgan, director
of Mt. Sinai's Addiction Treat-
ment Program. She said, "I am
delighted to see that the Jewish
Federations and the Jewish com-
munity are attempting to become
knowledgeable about drug use in
the Jewish Community and at-
tempting to find solutions to that
Also attending the meeting was
Senator Peter Weinstein who ex-
pressed his deep concern about
the drug problem and the need for
the legislature to involve itself
with drug programming.
Federation's director of educa-
tion, Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson,
discussed the youth group
seminars that are planned which
will include all youth groups and a
special curriculum on substance
abuse in Federation's Judaica
High School.

mation on the Task Force, please

handicaps the blind, the
deaf, the mentally retarded,
both children and adults;
providing incentives,
salaries and improved work-

senior adult; strengthening
synagogue schools and
establishing realistic goals

though we are not required
to complete it, we must not
desist from working on.
This is the challenge for CA-
JE and for the community.
As of June 1, 1973, the
Women's Division campaign was
at the $70,000 mark while the
general campaign reached
$410,000. Fort Lauderdale also,
for the first time, sent represen-
tatives to the national convention
of the Council of Jewish
The community celebrated
Israel's 25th anniversary with a
community-wide rally at Fort
Lauderdale High School.
On the national front, over
10,000 Americans assembled in
Washington, D.C. to protest the
treatment of Soviet Jews as then
President Nixon and Soviet Com-
munist Party Secretary Leonid
Brezhnev, met.
Henry Kissinger was named
Secretary of State, much to the
displeasure of many groups in
America, notably the right-wing
Liberty Lobby, who said that
there are "plenty of native-born

11th Annual Conference of the Southern Jewish Historical
Society Convenes in Fort Lauderdale November 7
Now numbering 500,000 in-
dividuals between West Palm
Beach and Key West, this area of
southern Florida has become the
third largest Jewish population
center in the United States. The
history of this phenomenal growth
will be the theme of the 11th An-
nual Conference of the Southern
Jewish Historical Society schedul-
ed to take place at Inverrary's
Hilton Conference Center in Fort
Lauderdale, Friday, Nov. 7
through Sunday, Nov. 9.
The conference will feature a
major exhibit called "Mosaic:
Jewish Life in Florida," a project
funded by the Florida Endowment
for the Humanities. Both the pro-
ject and the conference are hosted
and co-sponsored by the SJHS;
the Central Agency for Jewish
Education; the Samuel and
Helene Soref Jewish Community
Center, Perlman Campus; and
University of Miami's Judaic
Studies program. The "Mosaic"
includes photos, documents and
memorabilia focusing upon the
Jewish contribution to the state,
its family/synagogue/institutions
and its community relations.
"The exhibit portrays a rich and
varied mosaic of Jewish life as
well as a reflection of the tension,
integration and accommodation to
the distinctive life-style and
cultural pattern of the State of
Florida," says Dr. Henry Green,
who heads the Judaic Studies
"The SJHS Convention is being
held here in South Florida to help
support the 'Mosaic' project,"
continues Dr. Green, who is also
program chair of the Convention.
"We think this is the opportune
time to make the public aware of
Jewish history in this
The "Mosaic" which is planned
for touring throughout the state
beginning in 1988 is the fruition of
an idea attributed to Laura
Hochman who directs the Senior
Adult program at the Soref JCC.
Says Hochman, "Jewish life in
Florida began in 1768 in Pen-
sacola. And in Southern Florida
the first Jewish settlers located in
Key West followed by a handful of
Jewish merchants who followed
Henry Flagler's railroad to Miami
in the 1890's. Today half a million
of us are adding color and dimen-
sion to the mosaic of the lifestyle
of the entire state. Members of
the community are cordially in-
vited to the conference to hear
more about the story of the years

SOME 80 members of the Israel Committee for Solidarity with

THE ONLY non-Jewish volunteer on the illegal Jewish im-

SOVIET AUTHORITIES exploit citizens' ignorance of their
right of emigration to illegally deny them this right, a Hebrew
University of Jerusalem expert on the Soviet legal system states.
The average Soviet citizen is usually unaware of his rights of
emigration. It is this ignorance among the general population of
legal rights which is exploited by the Offices of the Committee for
btate Security and the Ministry of Internal Affairs: they act with
tyrannical disregard for the law."

Community Hebrew Ulpan Classes Begin in North Broward
What is over 4000 years old, yet
as modern as next week's
The Hebrew language!
Spoken by Abraham and his
descendants in ancient Israel,
Hebrew has been revived in the
20th century to become once
again, not only the language of
Israel, but the spoken tongue of
hundreds of thousands of Jews
throughout the entire world.
Now the Central Agency for
Jewish Education of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale is offering adults the
opportunity to study Hebrew in
the modern, easy-to-learn Ulpan
conversational approach. Classes
will be held mornings and even-
ings at the Jewish Community
Center and at Temples Beth
Israel, Beth Am in Margate, and
Beth Israel in Deerfield Beach.
At the JCC, 6501 W. Sunrise
Boulevard, classes begin on Mon-
day, October 27 and are held from
7:30 to 9:30 p.m. each Monday and
Thursday evenings. At Temple
Beth Israel, classes begin on Tues-
day, October 21, and continue
each Tuesday and Thursday morn-
ing from 9 to 11 a.m.
At Temple Beth Am classes
start on Tuesday evening,
November 4, and are held each
Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30
to 9:30 p.m. At Temple Beth
Israel, Deerfield Beach classes are
held Tuesday and Thursday morn-
ings, and Monday and Wednesday
mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The classes, continuing in ses-
sion for seven and a half weeks,
are conducted by highly-qualified
and trained Ulpan teachers who
provide both the knowledge of
modern, conversational Hebrew
and the dynamic spirit of Israel.
The Ulpan teaching method,
based on a scientific approach to
teaching language, is used in
Israel and throughout the world.
It provides the ability to unders-
tand and converse in the Hebrew
language, and, for advanced

was considering having her Bat

suggested that we have it

Louis and Leanne, their families

The B'nai Mitzvah service will
be held at Ramat Zion Synagogue

will follow. There will also be an

When announcing the board
members, Federation president
Brian J. Sherr said, "Bonaventure
members in our Federation family
have a keen awareness of the role
of our Federation Board in the
community. Together with the
other men and women leaders,
they will share profoundly in the
responsibility of providing the
organization and structure in
strengthening the local communi-
ty through increased services, and
at the same time offer the support
and assistance to make the '87
Federation/UJA campaign
achieve record funds which will
make a critical difference both in
Israel and in Jewish conmmunities
around the world."
Phillip Cohen, a member of the
Advisory Board, business en-
trepreneur, civic and philan-
thropic leader, has worked
diligently in the Bonaventure
Federation/UJA campaign. Prior
to coming to Florida, Cohen was
plauded for his work in UJA hav-
ing been named "Man of the
Year" in the Toy Industry in New
York, as well as being a fellow at
Brandeis and honoree for Hebrew
Universities. With his wife
Mildred, who is also active in the
Phillip Cohen
campaign, they are the parents of
a daughter, Phyllis, in Milwaukee,
and a son, Jay, in San Francisco.
"Her work in the Federation
knows no bounds having served
on a variety of committees," ac-
cording to Sherr, when referring
to Barbara Wiener. Currently the
chair of the Federation/UJA Mis-
sions Committee, she has been in-
strumental in bringing about a
greater awareness of the impor-
tances of community participating
in UJA Missions to Israel and
abroad, through her diligence and
hard work. The 1986 Women's
Division campaign chair, she led a
Barbara K. Wiener
fund-raising drive which to date
has raised $1.4 million for the
Federation/UJA. Nationally, she
has chaired the UJA Young
Women's Leadership cabinet, vice
chair, Project Renewal, and serv-
ed on the Women's Board from
1980-84. In addition, she is on the
boards of National Jewish Student
Appeal and Jewish Telegraphic
Agency. Her roles in the
Milwaukee Jewish Federation
from serving on the board to
Women's Division chair, among
others, earned her the Federation
Young Leadership Award, Golda
Meir National UJA awards and
countless others.

"I'm hoping to interest every

activity," he says.
"With the JCC's outstanding
facilities such as its newly
renovated gym and great pool
complex, the courts and the ball
fields, we surely can provide some
kind of action for everyone!"

manage to live on their own. Pictured, from left, Rabbi Abraham

Torah of eternal truth.
After the horror of the
Holocaust this par-
ticular ceremony has
perhaps greater
significance than ever.
Only 45 years ago over
1,000,000 children
E'rished in the flames of
urope. Today they re-
joice in their Jewish life
and learning, and bring
a sense of collective
faith and commitment to
eternal Jewish survival.
The final three aliyot
are special ones. The
aliya that concludes the
cycle of the reading of
the Torah is given to the
Hattan Torah (the
groom of the Torah),
usually an individual of
learning and stature in
the community. He is
called to the Torah with
a special proclamation
declaring his good deeds
and life.
The first aliyah for the
reading of the beginning
of the Torah, the first
sentences of the Book of
Genesis, is given to the
Hattan Bereisheet (the
Groom of Genesis). Thus
the cycle of the reading
of the Torah is never in-
terrupted, and a new
year's reading begins
Finally the Maftir por-
tion is, in some con-
gregations, entitled the
Hattan Maftir (Groom of
the Prophetic reading).
Appropriately enough it
describes the accession
of Joshua to leadership
following the death of
Moses. Each generation,
each leader may perish
but another Jew
comes forth and utters
the eternal vow
"Hineni here am I."
In our day a new ele-
ment has been added to
the day of Simchat
Torah. It has become
that day on which Rus-
sian Jews have taught
us the extraordinary
power of Torah, and the
joy of Torah, and the
celebration of Simchat
Torah for our times.
When they were cut off
by a cruel government
from the sources of our
faith, they turned
almost instinctively to
the festival of the Torah,
joining in the thousands
outside the synagogues
in Moscow, Leningrad,
Minsk... and
throughout Russia.
They have rediscovered
their Jewish soul
through the rejoicing
over the Torah on Sim-
chat Torah can we do
any less?
