Tax Planning Alert
Proposed Tax Reform Offers Opportunities for 1986
The U.S. Congress is currently
considering the Tax Reform Act
of 1986. A major consideration is
the lowering of income tax
brackets and the restriction of
IRA's and Keogh programs.
1986 provides special oppor-
tunities for you to make a gift to
Federation and obtain an outstan-
ding tax deduction this year. It
will be especially advantageous to
establish an endowment fund.
Consider the following:
.. Prior to December 31,
epay one or more yean of
tore annual campaign gifta
and obtain an income tax deduc-
tion at thia year's tax rates.
. Establish a philanthropic
fond that will bear your name or
that of your family. You will
receive a fall income tax
charitable deduction at present
rates. The gift, invested by the
Endowment Fond of the Federa-
tion, provides income and/or
principal which can be recom-
mended by yon to the Federation
or other appropriate charities.
You can satisfy future annual
campaign obligations from your
philanthropic fond and receive
an income tax deduction at 1986
rates. Yon are not taxed for in-
come earned by the fond.
. Establish s charitable re-
mainder thrust daring 1986. Use
cash, long-term capital gains or
other sssets to establish a trust
which will provide income to
yon and/or your spouse for life.
The income tax deduction is for
part of the gift value based upon
your age and the rate of trust in-
come. If IRA or Keogh pro-
grams are restricted by the Tax
Act, a charitable trust can sup-
plement your retirement pro-
gram and provide a 1986 income
tax deduction.
. Establish a charitable
lead trust prior to year-end
which provides Federation with
income for a period of years on
your lifetime. At the end of the
trust, the assets are returned to
yon or to someone you
designate. An income tax deduc-
tion is available at 1986 higher
brackets. A lead trust also helps
to "freere" the value of assets
and gift or estate taxes paid in
the future will be based on the
value on the date the trust was

Maximize Your 1986 Tax Savings...
Help Federation/UJA and
World of Jewish Need
FACT: If yon are in the 50 percent tax bracket, the after tax out-of-pocket cost of any
pledge paid by December 31,1986 is still only half your pledge.
FACT: If yon pay your pledge with long-term appreciated securities before December
31, 1986 you may deduct the current market value of your gift and avoid taxes on the
capital gains without the minimum tax implications which might apply after 1986.
Dear Friend:
The Tax Reform Act of 1986 has provided a one-time opportunity to maximize your tax sav-
ings in 1986 through payment of your Federation gift. The top marginal tax rate in 1987 will
be 38.5 percent ana in 1988 it will be significantly below the present tax rate. That means that
a $10,000 pledge, paid before December 31, 1986 will yield a tax benefit of $5,000, while the
same pledge, paid after that deadline, will supply a tax benefit effect of only $3,850.
The numbers speak for themselves. You will help Jews in our own community and around
the world to the full extent of your commitment, but at less ultimate cost to yourself, if you
finish paying your 1986 pledge before the end of the year. You might also consider making and
paying your 1987 pledge by the same date.
The Tax Reform Act has also made it more advantageous to donate appreciated property in
1986, especially for those in or close to an alternative minimum tax situation. I urge you to
consult your own tax advisor to review the tax advantages of paying your 1986 and 1987
pledges before the end of 1986 either in cash or with property on which you have significant
capital gains.
If you are like me, your gift to the Campaign is high priority, and you've always relied on
good financial advice and good business sense to make the maximum amount of resources
available to help Jews in need.
So, don't delay.
Sincerely yours,
General Chairman

Sheldon Polish Wants You to Help Our Brethren
"Preparation is wisdom our
sages say. If we are to be suc-
cessful in the 1987 Federa-

paign, we must begin to plan our
strategy now. Planning prepares
us for the time when the possible
becomes probable. And so in the
coming months, let us all work
together to bring about this plan
to help our Jewish men, women
and children, here in our great

ty, in the Jewish Homeland of
Israel and in more than 33 other
lands around the world."

Moynihan Says
U.S. Should Move Tel Aviv Embassy
Sen. Moynihan
Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D.,
N.Y.) has vowed to continue
efforts to move the United
States Embassy in Israel
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
"The State of Israel has a
right under international
law to declare Jerusalem its
capital," the lawmaker told
300 guests at the presenta-
tion of the Fourth Annual
Defender of Jerusalem
Award last Thursday night
at the Metropolitan Museum
of Art.
"Jerusalem is far more than
just a political capital," Moynihan
declared. "It embodies and sym-
bolizes three millenia of Jewish ac-
complishments and aspirations.
The United States government
woull do well to
Rica's exam1
COSTA RICA was the first
country to put its Embassy in
Jerusalem despite pressure from
other countries and international
bodies. Luis Alberto Monge, one
of the awardees, was President at
the time. The two other awardees
were Per Ahlmark, former Depu-
ty Prime Minister of Sweden, and
Rabbi Eliahu Essas, for 13 years a
dissident in the Soviet Union and
now living in Israel.
Referring to the three winners,
Moynihan noted that Ahlmark
"has done so much to secure sup-
port for Israel and Jerusalem in
Scandinavia"; Essas "refused to
forget the message of Jerusalem
in the Soviet Gulag"; and Alberto
Monge "has shown the world that
foreign Embassies can and should
be in Jerusalem."
Nobel Prize laureate Elie Wiesel
presented the award to Ahlmark,
citing him for his consistent ad-
vocacy of Israel's rights and his
opposition to every manifestation
of anti-Semitism in his native
Sweden and throughout Scan-
dinavia. "Statesman, poet,
humanist: Per Ahlmark has
relentlessly defended the honor of
Israel with vigor, talent and pas-
sion. He is singularly deserving of
the Jewish people's gratitude,"
Wiesel said.
AHLMARK, who is also Deputy
President of the Swedish-Israeli
Friendship League since 1970,
said in response that Israel "has
given and still does so, inspiration
to free men and women around
the world." "If you support
Israel, you also support the idea of
freedom everywhere," he added,
and "what we see on the interna-
tional scene now, not least in the
UN, are systematic attempts to
make the Jewish State illegal, ef-
forts to isolate Israel in a way that
in fact prepares world opinion for
"The anti-Semites," he con-
tinued, "start with the Jews, but
never stop with the Jews. Anti-
Semitism is always a call for toe
destruction of democratic values
and institutions. To tolerate anti-
Semitism is to invite disaster. In
the end, we will all be victims."
The $100,000 award is spon-
sored by the Jabotinsky Founda-
tion. The chairman of The Foun-
dation is Eryk Spektor. The prize
is given to persons who undertake
extraordinary action "in defense
of the rights of the Jewish peo-
ple," Spektor said.

materially to assist those of our people in need. You can help by ascer-
taining what is owed to UJA and what our Federation can do to meet its
commitments before the end of the year.

help meet the needs both in our community and in Israel and for
world Jewry.

beneficiaries, yet less than half of
them having never given a con-
tribution to the campaign. Still
the other group have never even
given as much as a dime.
Then there are those who make
a minimum gift to UJA, I suspect
that is all some can afford and is
profoundly given, but I also
believe that some of these people
who contribute are giving far less
than their ability permits. Our
community income level does not
match its contribution level Our
goal for 1987 exceeds the $7
million mark and I know for cer-
tain that it will be the highest goal
in our history. I also know that
each year, UJA loses thousands of
dollars because people die and
move away, plus thousands of
dollars because some people
reduce their gift
To reach our goal and to con-
tinue to maintain the work of our
agencies and beneficiaries, our
most important task is to secure
new and increased gifts this is
We have come a long way in our
short 19-year history, but we also
have a long way to go before we
reach our potential and your help
is needed to achieve it. Our
growth in recent years has come
from the few, the affluent and the
very generous, however, further
growth must come from others.
From the more than 50 percent of
the people who make no gift to
UJA, and from the group of peo-
ple who give too little.
We are working diligently to
find out why people don't con-
tribute or don't contribute more.
We are developing communica-
tions programs to tell these people
what we are, and what we do, and
how important our work is.
But we need your help to suc-
ceed. We need Prospects. We
need you to call or write us and
give us the names of your friends,
neighbors, business associates, so
that they can join our happy
"Family of Federation/UJA
Research tells us that many peo-
ple are not contributors simply
because they have never been ask-
ed in the right way. If you think
you are the right one to ask, I
hope that you will take action.
We'll provide all the information
you need, and if you prefer to have
someone else contact the people,
we'll do it that way.
The 1987 Federation/UJA cam-
paign is preparing for the best. I
believe that our plans are ex-
cellent, but the end result depends
largely on two things: broadening
the base of contributions and in-
creasing the average gift.
This will happen only with your
support and assistance.
The Jewish Federation's office
is manned by a group of highly
qualified professionals and sup-
port personnel under the direction
of Kenneth B. Bierman, executive
director, prepared to maintain a
daily vigjl in helping to achieve
these results. Call or write today
and help us to help all of our
brethren the UJA way!"

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale/Friday, November 21, 1986
Th views expressed by cohimnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
An Optimistic View
Charles Silberman in A Certain People has been criticized for
portraying the growth of the Jewish community in too glowing
terms. It appears that most sociologists and analysts see the
American Jewish community numerically declining as a result of
assimilation and intermarriage.
In his chapter on intermarriage and the growth of the Jewish
population, Silberman declares that the birthrate is high enough
to keep the Jewish population at about its current size. On the
issue of intermarriage, he writes that it seems unlikely that inter-
marriage will lead to more than a slight reduction in the number
of Jews, and it could well bring about an increase. From the view
of Jewish law, he defines intermarriage as a marriage between a
Jew and someone who is not Jewish at the time the wedding
Some statistics have shown a fivefold increase in intermarriage
in approximately the last 10 years. Silberman takes exception.
"Human beings do not normally alter their behavior that rapidly,
especially in so crucial and sacred an area of life as mar-
riage." His calculations show that "roughly one Jew in four now
marries someone who had been Gentile at birth."
Between 1971-81 he claims the intermarriage rate grew by one
point per year, reaching a level of 24 percent by 1981. Assuming
the same growth for the last several years, he argues that the in-
crease is a far cry from those citing figures of 40 to 60 percent. In
fact, he writes "there is reason to believe that the increase has
about run its course and that it may stabilize around the current
level." Citing figures from Canada, where statistics on mixed
marriages are available on an annual basis from the government,
he notes that the proportion of Jewish women marrying non- Jews
has already dropped.
Good news for Jewish women. Silberman asserts that "over the
next decade there will be a surplus rather than a shortage of
Jewish men of marriageable age, which means that a largest pro-
portion of Jewish women are likely to marry within the faith."
What about intermarried couples? He states that 20 percent of
Gentile-bom spouses convert to Judaism. Conversionary couples
are twice as likely as mixed married couples to raise their children
as Jews. They are also expected to have 70 percent more children.
The net effect is that half the children born to intermarried
couples are or will be raised as Jews. Therefore, the intermar-
riage rate is a wash, i.e. it has no effect at all on the number of
Silberman goes so far as to claim that if mixed married couples
raise their children as they say they will, intermarriage would
lead not to a reduction in the number of Jews but to a gain of more
than 40 percent. "If half the children of intermarriages are raised
as Jews," he argues "there will be no net reduction in the number
of Jews, no matter how high the intermarriage rate is."
In 1977 Elihu Bergman, then assistant director of the Harvard
Center for Population Studies, wrote, "When the United States
celebrates its Tricentennial in 2076, the American Jewish com-
munity is likely to number no more than 944,000 persons, and
conceivably as few as 10,420." Silberman would probably not
disagree more.

Rabbi Rosen of Rumania
Succeeding Against All Odds
Friday, November 21,1986
Volume 15
Number 33
UJA Ptcm Service
years that Dr. Moses Rosen has
been Chief Rabbi of Rumania, he
has performed an amazing
political balancing act. He has re-
mained on friendly terms with a
Communist government, while
organizing a vibrant network that
preserves and reinforces the
Jewish identity of Rumanian
Jews. This, against a background
of periodic outbreaks of anti-
Semitism in tandem with massive
aliyah to Israel of Rumanian Jews.
Nobody knows for sure how this
pudgy, bearded 60-ish Orthodox
Rabbi has managed to go eye-to-
eye so successfully with Nicolae
Ceausescu, president of the
Socialist Republic of Rumania,
and with Ceausescu's
predecessors. No doubt the
government has found it in its
own interests to allow Rosen to
promote aliyah and strengthen
Jewish life among the 29,000 Jews
who remain, the vestige of a once
vibrant community ravaged by
the Holocaust.
But in an interview of Rosen by
the United Jewish Appeal Press
Service recently, during one of
the rabbi's frequent visits here,
one sensed that his personality
has helped Jews press the
perimeters of government
Rosen places his full faith in
G-d, and is not intimidated by
anyone. He is fiercely determined,
confident, purposeful, organized.
He is the rare person who com-
bines personal warmth ,id a
genius for the nur ,es of
realpolitik. You feel his presence
in the room and are riveted to him
as he speaks.
"They say I have torn open the
Iron Curtain for the Jews of
Rumania," he said. "Perhaps this
is true. Of the 400,000 Rumanian
Jews who survived World War II,
% percent made aliyah. Some day
I would like to follow them. Right
now, there is much still to do for
Jews still in Rumania. Did you
know there are 29,000 there,
more than half over the age of
What Rosen does is not only go
to Ceausescu when anti-Semitism
(not necessarily in the govern-
ment) is manifest; he also helps
Jews survive more immediate
Rosen heads the Federation of
Jewish Communities, which aids
Jews in 68 communities, including
by cash grants from $20 to $100 a
month for 3,000 persons; winter
fuel, often wood transported to
remote areas, for 6,000 persons;
food packages for 5,500; clothing
for 3,500; medical services and
pharmaceuticals for 4,500.
In addition, the Federation
maintains 11 kosher kitchens that
provide 2,500 free hot meals daily,
including 600 delivered to Jewish

non-Chrstian community to shrink

defined as those actively
associated with synagogues -

During the same period, the
Moslem population increased by
250,000 to 825,000 and Christian

homes for the elderly helping 440
Jews in Bucharest, Timisoara,
Dorohoi and Arad. It operates 102
synagogues and Talmudei Torah
for the small but important
number of Rumanian Jewish
children. It maintains Jewish
cemeteries and distributes
Passover matzot and wine.
We want people to have what
they need, but there are needs of
the spirit as well as the body,"
says Rosen. "And we want them
to maintain their dignity. We in-
sure that each Jew over 60 has at
least a minimum income level but
help them feel entitled to it. The
checks are mailed monthly and if
one is delayed, I receive a note
saying, 'Chief Rabbi, your salary
was paid, but mine was not.' We
want them to feel that way."
Rosen speaks with pride at what
has been accomplished for Ruma-
nian Jews, but has no illusions.
"Don't misunderstand me," he
said, pointing a finger, his' clear
eyes imprinting his words on his
listeners memory, "Rumania
isn't a Jewish paradise. The
Messiah hasn't arrived yet.
Rosen speaks with pleasure, but
with a sense of independence,
about the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee, which
provides $4,511,728 to finance the
federation's programs and ser-
vices. It is the largest allocation
outside of Israel by JDC, which
receives virtually all its $46.5
million annual income from
American Jews contributing to
the United Jewish- Appeal/Com-
munity Campaign.
"I express my admiration for
the JDC," Rosen said of the
organization that was permitted
to return to Rumania in 1967 after
19 years behind a political barrier.
"Its people have great humanity,
understanding. Because of them,
we can maintain a Jewish spirit.
And they help link us as a bridge
to American Jews."
Rosen's personal dream is to
make aliyah once a successor is
chosen. He hopes a powerful
leader, perhaps from outside
Rumania, will step forward to con-
tinue the difficult but important
task of living and striving to main-
tain a Jewish dimension in
Normalizing Relations
Reagan Administration officials have said repeatedly that nor-
malizing relations between Egypt and Israel as called for in the
Camp David Accords and the Egypt-Israel peace treaty is vital.
They have pointed out that normalization is necessary to breathe
life into the dry language of the diplomatic documents and to set
an example that might, some day, bring other Arab states into
what is called "the peace process."
Those observations are correct, but they fail to address another
key area of normalization. A host of nations, including U.S. allies
and friends, maintain relations with Israel that can hardly be
described as normal. Among them are countries which assert
their desire to play a role in promoting Arab-Israeli peace and
press Israel but not the Arab states to make concessions.
A short list includes:
Great Britain, which embargoes arms sales to Israel but,
despite Israeli protests, sells advanced weaponry to a number of
Arab states. London also has refused repeatedly to sell Israel oil
from its North Sea fields.
France, which since De Gaulle's vengeful reversal in 1967 also
embargoes arms sales to Israel while simultaneously selling large
quantities to Arab states.
Japan, seen by observers in Washington and Jerusalem alike
as a leading suspect when it comes to complying with the Arab
League s economic boycott of Israel.
J^ya^'wh^Perio in Middle Eastern conflicts but refuses to establish diplomatic
relations with Israel.
Greece, a NATO and Common Market member which fre-
quently hosts PLO Chairman Yasir Arafat or his deputies, but
carefully calibrates contacts with Israel and accords it only partial
diplomatic representation.
Literally dozens of nations in Africa and Asia maintain exten-
sive but quiet agricultural, educational, military and commercial
toes with the Jewish state yet they extend diplomatic recogni-
tion to the PLO. One Hundred and twenty-two countries maintain
diplomatic relations with or grant recognition to the PLO, an
organization still pledged to Israel's destruction. Only 79 have full
diplomatic relations with Israel, and ten more recognize it but
nave not exchanged ambassadors.
J5.erei l?*,be?D 8om PWfeM- Several African states have
reestablished relations, low-level diplomatic connections are be-
ing restored with Poland and talks have been held with other
eastern European countries. China has expressed interest in

Israel recently. England, France and Israel have discussed anti-
terronsm cooperation. And formal talks have been held with the
soviet Union. These otherwise unremarkable developments are
noteworthy just because international treatment of Israel is so
Dozens of countries especially leading states like Great Bri-

Israel. Then they can be part of the process.

Memories From '66 to '86...
Friday, November 21, 1986/Tfte Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 5
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Editor's Note: The following in-
formation is compiled from the ar-
chives of the Jewish Floridian of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Responding to the needs of the
rapidly growing Jewish communi-
ty in North Broward, the Jewish
Federation in 1975 started to in-
tensify a number of its existing
community programs and adding
others, according to Federation
president Albert Garnitz.
Among those programs getting
top attention were the Communi-
ty Relations Committee, Leader-
ship Development, Jewish educa-
tion, teen programming and
singles programming.
Leading the Federation towards
a direction of educating the
Jewish teen, the Federation
established an Academy for
Jewish Studies for grades 10-12
headed by Jewish Education Com-
mittee member Ludwik Brodzki.
"Our goal is for teens to learn
about their Jewish heritage and
culture in an atmosphere of
scholarship and socializing."
The thrust of the Federation,
the 1975 campaign, was in full
Attend Meet With Palestinians
Twenty-nine Israeli leftw-
ing activists departed for
Bucharest Wednesday
morning (Nov. 5) for a two-
day symposium with
Palestinian intellectuals, in-
cluding representatives of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. It was spon-
sored by the Rumanian
Writers Association and
ended last Thursday night.
The group fell far short of the
100 who originally signed up for
the trip. Most of the better-known
activists dropped out, apparently
having had second thoughts.
There was dissension among the
organizers and the threat of pro-
secution under a new law that pro-
hibits Israelis from having contact
with members of a terrorist
THE EAST for Peace move-
ment, leftwing Sephardic doves,
announced last Tuesday that they
were withdrawing. The Mapam
Party, which was to have sent a
delegation, bowed out last Mon-
day. But one of its leading intellec-
tuals. Latif Dori, did go. He and
writer-editor Yael Lotan are the
most prominent members of the
group that went to Bucharest.
The participants ran a gauntlet
of jeers and abuse from
demonstrators at Ben Gurion Air-
port who included relatives of ter-
rorist victims. In the eyes of many
Israelis the Bucharest meeting is
nothing more than a PLO pro-
paganda event.
The PLO announced it was sen-
ding a member of its Central Com-
mittee, Mohammed Milhem, a
former West Bank Mayor. But
rumors that PLO chief Yasir
Arafat and other top leaders
would attrend turned out to be
Earlier Premeir Yitzhak Shamir
urged the Rumanian government
to withdraw its support from the
meeting because it would involve
Israeli citizens in an illegal act.
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
characterized the event as "a
theater of the absurd."
FT LAUD 776-6272
Ezer Weizman, who works out of
the Foreign Ministry, said last
Tuesday that he thought
the Israeli group should stay
home, not because meetings with
the PLO are banned but because
such unofficial contacts do
nothing to advance the peace pro-
cess. According to Weizman, the
issues under discussion "are
political matters of the first
degree" which cannot be settleed
by unauthorized persons.
Meanwhile, the Israeli Commit-
tee of War Resisters International
and the International Movement
of Conscientious Objectors has ap-
pealed to Peres to allow one of
their people, Yeahayahu Toma-
Shik, to go to Amman this week
for an international conference on
non-violence. It was organized by
the Arab Thought Forum under
the patronage of Crown Prince
Hassan, brother of King Hussein.
fort and solace to the community
in need in '76. Volunteers were
organized for visitations to
residents of nursing homes and
retirement homes.
One of the burning issues of the
time was the UN Resolution
equating Zionism and Racism.
Allan Baer and the rest of Fort
Lauderdale's 'family' fought
diligently against the resolution.
The final results from the 1975
campaign were: 4,500 con-
tributors, 2,000 new gifts; 16 per-
cent increase over the 1974 totals.
The Federation also expanded

When I was in Tel Aviv last
summer, I wanted to visit the

was apprenticed to some
dressmakers, started dress
designing with a partner, and
eventually started her own

Chairman Martin F. Stein
A record $300,000 was raised by
the contingent of leaders from the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale who took part in
this historic mission led by
Sheldon S. Polish, 1987 Federa-
tion/UJA general chairman.
Stein said that these contribu-
tions, by nearly 1,600 American
Jews on five participating mis-
sions, represented an overall in-
crease of 34.4 percent above the
gifts of the same contributors in
Campaign '86.
"In addition, these participants
pledged $1,679,963 to Project
Renewal," Stein said, referring to
the partnership program by which
American Jews through UJA, aid
Israelis in distressed

said that the President's Mission,
with participants committed to
minimum gifts of $10,000 each,
raised $12,830,000, a 30.8 percent
increase in giving by these donors
compared to their gifts to the
previous campaign.

Stein said that the Chazak Com-
munity Leadership Mission, which
carried minimum commitments of
$1,500, raised $1,776,627, a card-
for-card increase for these donors
of 67 percent over their giving to
the previous campaign. Chazak
participants also pledged
$235,433 for Project Renewal.
Giving was up in three smaller
missions, too. The National
Women's Division Fall Leader-
ship Mission raised $365,532, a 29
percent increase, and $23,855 for
Project Renewal. The Business
and Professional Women's Coun-
cil Mission raised $71,180, a 59
percent increase and $16,175 for
Renewal. And the Jewish Com-
munal Service Professional Mis-
sion raised $77,007, a 74 percent
increase and $4,500 for Project
"We came because we cared,"
Stein said. "We American Jews
were determined to demonstrate
our commitment to the people of
Israel and went to Israel in
throngs. We Jews are truly one
people with one destiny and will
always stand together proud
and tall."
UJA President Stanley B.
Horowitz said that the Celebra-
tion '87 results, combined with
$24.4 million raised on the Prime
Minister's Mission and other giv-
ing, have brought the total for
Campaign '87 already to over $40
million. Additionally, $25 million
has been raised in the Renewal Vi-

Celebration '87 included ad-

Shimon Peres, who recently con-

Minister Yitzhak Rabin. Several
events marked the 100th birthday

Susana says she has all sorts of
plans and ideas in the making to
attract adults of all ages including
parents of JCC's pre-schoolers
and children of elementary age.
Couples programs are on her list
as well as trips, classes, cultural
events and entertainment to
please all ages.
"Of course, I'll be on the lookout
and responding to what I think
our members want," she says.
Susana and her husband Robert,
who have recently become
residents of Lauderhill, are the
parents of Jessica, four-and-a-
half, and Joseph who is two years
old. Sister and brother are en-
thusiastic participants in JCC's

Susana Flaum, recently ap-
pointed director of JCC's Adult
and Cultural Arts Program makes
her second appearance on cam-
pus. Called back because of "au-
dience acclaim" during her past
performance, Susana headed the
Center's Senior Adult Activities
Department in '79 and '80, shortly
after the Center moved on to its
present Perlman Campus. She left
the job for good reason to take
maternity leave!
During the two years Susana
served the Center she started
many new programs to attract
senior adults. Among them: Yid-
dish studies. And, she is proud to
say, "It was I who convinced Jack
and Rae Fishman, our star sup-
porters of the Yiddish Language
Arts, to establish, write, produce
and direct Yiddish Theatre in
Broward County." So thanks are
due Susana, for her inspiration
which led to the smashing suc-
cesses of the Fishman specials:

"Your pre-requisite for joining us
is your love of history."

The featured theme of the SJHS
Conference '86 was: "Mosaic:
Jewish Life in Southern Florida."
The exhibit at the Hilton featured
a remarkable display of photos,
documents, newspaper clippings
yellowed with age and
memorabilia dating as far back as
1886. This "Mosaic" is the initial
collection of precious artifacts
relating to South Florida's
earliest Jewish settlers. The com-
mittee, still collecting, hopes that
many more items of Jewish
historical interest relating to
Jewish life in Florida will be for-
thcoming. The "Mosaic" is
scheduled to go on tour and visit
all the major cities in Florida,
beginning in 1988.
Members of the community are
requested to aid the committee in
their search. Do you have, or do
you know of another family who
has photos, documents, or any
other item of interest to lend to
the exhibit? Assuredly, special
care will be taken of your precious
possessions. Call JCC. Ask for

Celebrate Jewish Book Month
Nov. 27-Dec. 27

NEW YORK The 1986 North
American celebration of Jewish
Book Month will take place Nov.
27-Dec. 27, it was announced by
Abraham J. Kremer, president,
JWB Jewish Book Council, na-
tional sponsor of tile Month.
Two newly-designed posters
herald the forthcoming Jewish
Book Month. One, designed and
executed by the Israeli artist
Giora Carmi, is a whimsical treat-
ment of the phrase, "One who in-
creases books increases wisdom."
The poster shows a man reading
one book while his hair forms the
spines of additional books perched
atop his head.
Interviewed by JWB, Carmi
was asked how he developed his
concept for the poster.
The illustrator-designer
responded: "A publication that
JWB had sent me was the inspira-
tion. There were a lot of quotes of
famous people about books, and
they gave me ideas for the poster.
One was very close to what I final-
ly selected. Personally,
everything that I can rely on has
come from books."
The other Jewish Book Month
poster, for children, was designed
and illustrated by Jonathan
Kremer, calligrapher and graphic
designer based in Philadelphia.
Through books on a tree and one
even in the mouth of a serpent,
Kremer explores the concept of
the biblical Tree of Knowledge in
bright, primary colors.
"The bright colors and the
design are supposed to project a
pleasing feeling," Kremer told
JWB, "but there is a message as
well. The message is one of good
and evil. One can get both from

Jewish Book Month has become
a widely observed date on the
calendar of North American
Jewry, with Jewish Community
Centers, synagogues, Jewish
schools, libraries, organizations.
and entire Jewish communities
staging Jewish Book Fairs and
other special book programs to
focus attention on the latest books
of Jewish interest.
The history of Jewish Book
Month goes back to 1925, when a
Boston librarian named Fanny
Goldstein set up a Judaica exhibit
to mark the first Jewish Book
Week. It later gained national ac-
ceptance and popularity. By 1943,
when the Jewish Book Council
was formally organized, the week-
long event had expanded into
Jewish Book Month. This year,
Jewish Book Month will be pro-
claimed as an official observance
in the State of New York.

SEYMOUR REICH, President of B'nai B'rith International,
called upon all the nations of the world to unite in active opposi-
tion to terrorism. "The time for pious declarations is long past,"
Reich said. "Now we must decide that we will penalize those coun-
tries that harbor terrorists, that train and supply terrorists, that
support and encourage terrorism. It is not enough to hunt down
and punish terrorists after each act of bloody barbarism. We must
isolate and punish their sponsors."

and narcotics control of activities abroad.
A MEASURE sponsored by Congressman Clay Shaw to cut off
federal funds to schools that do not have drug education pro-
grams was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives. The
bill prohibits federal money from being given to educational in-
stitutions that do not have drug programs.
AN EVER increasing influx of letters of protest from concern-
ed Medicare claimants over delays in processing their medicare
claims lead Congressman Buddy McKay and AARP Health Care
officials to take an in-depth look at the current status of the
Medicare Part B claims process. After reviewing the methods be-
ing used at the Blue Cross/Blue Shield plant in Jacksonville, it
was decided that the problem was not due to negligence on the
part of Blue Cross/Blue Shield whose current staff is now
operating at its fullest capacity in handling about 90,000 claims
per day. Rather, it was felt that the failure was due to the lack of
adequate personnel and equipment and the need for HCFA to
have released sufficient funds necessary to obtain additional per-
sonnel and equipment to take care of the ever increasing number
of claims being received.

Tribunal Rejects Arab's Appeal
For information
call (914)
military tribunal in Nablus
unanimously rejected an appeal
against deportation by Akram
Haniye, editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic daily A-Shaab.
His attorney, Felicia Langer, an-
nounced she would take the case
to the Supreme Court.
Haniye was arrested and
ordered deported on charges that
he was a principal coordinator of
Palestine Liberation Organization
political activities in the ad-
ministered territories. The
authorities conceded, however,
that he was not involved in ter-
rorist activities.
The deportation order will not
be implemented pending a deci-
sion by the Supreme Court.
The order to expel Haniye to
Jordan was angrily protested by
Arab journalists and the general
population in the territories. The
Jerusalem Press Association join-
ed the protest after several days
of hesitation. It sent telegrams to
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
One of (he questions I'm always
asked is: "Why do you choose to
play Klezmer music?" The answer
is simple. Klezmer music is part of
my musical inheritance. Klezmer
touches deep and profound feelings
relating to my heritage
Other Jewish people who hear it
experience Ihe same feelings It
(ouches them in ways no other musk-
docs Which is why I play Kle/mtr
music to serve ihe communit> h>
playing music that brings together
Jews from different backgrounds.
Playing Klezmer music is stren-
uous. That's one reason why I lake
care of myself. So I exercise and
watch what I eat. But taking care of
myself doesn't mean giving up the
things I enjoy. Like coffee. That's
why I drink Sanka* Brand Decaf-
feinated coffee. It's a good cup of
coffee-really smooth and satisfying.
Since caffeine doesn't fit into my
life-style. Sanka* is a great way to
enjoy as much coffee as I want I can
have it anytime I want, even right
before performing.
The way I look at it. good health
is a gift from G-d. Therefore.
I have to take care of myself ^^
Sanka* helps me do just that \^J

Off to Helsinki
Invitation to Abram, Hoenlein
NEW YORK Morris B.
Abram, chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations,
and Malcolm Hoenlein, executive
director, have accepted invita-
tions from the U.S. State Depart-
ment to serve as public members
of the U.S. delegation to the
follow-up conference on the
Helsinki accords that began in
Vienna last week. They were ask-
ed to serve by Warren Zimmer-
man, chief of the U.S. delegation
to the meeting.
The two Jewish leaders are
among 15 prominent Americans
taking part in the Vienna con-
ference, known formally as the
Follow-Up Meeting of the Con-
ference on Security and Coopera-
tion in Europe (CSCE).
AT THE MEETING, expected
to run for six weeks, the 35 par-
ticipating states will review the
status of all issues covered by the
1975 Helsinki Final Act and the
1983 Madrid Concluding
In inviting Abram and Hoenlein
to participate in the Vienna
meeting, Zimmerman wrote:
"Public members provide
several important services to our
CSCE delegations. They help call
public attention to the CSCE pro-
cess and to U.S. objectives within
it Foremost among these at Vien-
na is improved implementation by
the participating states notably
the Soviet Union and its East
European allies of their
Helsinki and Madrid
"Public members are a source of
valuable expertise and experience
concerning CSCE compliance
failures that should be brought to
light and effective ways of doing
so. In addition, public members
serve as a unique means of two-
way communication between the
delegation and concerned consti-
tuencies at home."
Each public member of the U.S.
delegation is asked to spend at
least two weeks in Vienna. Abram
and Hoenlein will attend the
meetings separately.

"Although the CSCE balance
sheet has shown mixed results to
date, the basic fact of the CSCE
process has been the failure of the
Soviet Union and, to varying
degrees, its East European allies
to comply with their Helsinki com-
mitments. As Secretary Shultz
stated in 1985: Ten years after
the signing of the Final Act, no
one can deny the gap between
hope and performance. Despite
the real value of the Final Act as a
standard of conduct, the most im-
portant promises of a decade ago
have not been kept.'
"Egregious new compliance
failures occur and old ones con-
tinue. The Soviet Union still oc-
cupies Afghanistan and imprisons
and otherwise penalizes its own
citizens for exercising the rights
and freedoms promised in the
Final Act. Despite the recent
resolution of several cases, many
Soviet citizens married to
Americans are cruelly separated
from their spouses by official
denial of exit permission.
The number of Soviet Jews
allowed to emigrate mainly for
family reunification, has fallen
drastically from the levels permit-
ted in the late 1970s.

A Well-Written History of Israel
The Siege: The Saga of Israel and
\ Zionism. Conor Cruise O'Brien.
Simon and Schuster, 1230 Avenue
I of the Americas, New York, NY
10020. 1986. $24.95.
| Reviewed by Mark Friedman
The Siege is an outstanding
I survey of the history of Zionism
and the travails of Israel, written
by the journalist and diplomat,
I Conor Cruise O'Brien.
O'Brien's interest in the Middle
I East began in the 1950s when he
represented Ireland at the UN
and was seated between the
delegates from Iraq and Israel. He
developed an affinity for the
Israelis, due in part to some
similarities in the realities and
perceptions of the two na-
tionalities Irish and Israeli. As
this is a very personal book,
O'Brien often raises parallels bet-
I ween his homeland and Israel.
The Siege is a book written by an
I outsider, with the concomitant ad-
vantages and disadvantages. The
author enjoys a perspective which
only distance can offer. Yet that
distance carries the price of
obscuring some of the fine points
of the complex political process
| and players.
The title was chosen to describe
the conditions and forces within
which Zionism grew and the state
of Israel now exists. O'Brien's ap-
proach is reminiscent of calculus
meticulously describing and
analyzing the immutable con-
straints on Zionism and Israel
before looking for the optimal
solutions that remain. Some of
these constraints are on the in-
side, as they are ideas basic to
Israel, such as the Jewish nature
of the state, the ingathering of the
exiles, and the imperative of
never becoming dependent on ex-
ternal forces for the security of
the state. Most of the constraints
are beyond Israel's borders.
Thus, O'Brien believes that the
hope for a comprehensive peace
settlement in the Middle East is
unrealistic and diverts attention
from what might be achieved.
Peace between Israel and its
neighbors is Utopian for O'Brien,
who argues persuasively that the
idea of exchanging territory for
peace is unworkable. Israel can
never willingly return all the ter-
ritory it won in the 1967 war
because of the centrality of
Jerusalem to the Jewish people
and because of the resulting
diminution of its security. On the
other side, not even "moderate"
Arab leaders could ever accept
anything less than the return of
all those territories, given the con-
straints of extremist Arab senti-
ment and their own insecure
grasp of power. O'Brien suggests
that the optimal solution for Israel
would involve tacit agreements
between Israel, Syria, Lebanon,

The Siege is, after all, primarily
concerned with the current situa-
tion. The past is no more than pro-
logue, although a third of the book
is devoted to the history of
Zionism before 1948. The history
does suffer at times from being
too anticipatory. For example,
O'Brien mentions the Holocaust
on three occasions before his nar-
rative reaches the time of Herzl at
the end of the 19th Century.
O'Brien is a marvelous storyteller
and has what he calls "perhaps
the greatest story of modern
times" to tell. His style is fluid,
although too often he gives quota-
tions in the text, without pro-
viding the source in the notes.
Sometimes his style gets a little
too light as when he likens Haj
Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Muf-
ti of Jerusalem, to Alec Guinness
dressed as a sheikh. But overall,
The Seige is an excellent introduc-
tion to the subject for the general
reader and a book from which the

A Message From
The Scriptures tell we have
the will
To sin or not to sin.
Should we desire to seek
the bad,
The power lies within.
But if we want to follow G-d
Where naught but good
can flower,
To find His way of happiness,
We also have the power ...
Do not believe the soulless clod,
Or any heathen cad
Who says a babe from birth
is marked
"A good one, or a bad."
Our Adoshem, or bless-ed name,
Has given us a choice:
To eschew pursuit of sin,
Or heed our little voice ...
Since Good or Evil is on hand
To make us glad or sad,
It's surely wise to chose
the good
Rather than the bad ...
