Glamour, Glitter, Commitment at Major Gifts
World News
The chairman of the South
African Zionist Federation
has urged his nation's Jews
to more seriously consider
immigration to Israel, as
their relatively comfortable
South African lifestyle could
end. The Jewish Echo of
Glasgow, Scotland, reports
that M.W. "Mockie" Fried-
man warned delegates to
the recent federation con-
ference here of "a dark
night for Jews, with danger
emanating from the ex-
treme right and extreme

Vienna when current envoy,
Michael Elizur, retires
shortly. Instead, it will leave
its embassy in the hands of a
Charge d'Affaires, a signifi-
cant downgrading of Israeli
diplomatic representation in
Austria. Jerusalem's deci-
sion is clearly a sign of its
deep displeasure over the
election of Kurt
Waldheimer to the Austrian
Presidency last July after a
bitter campaign during
which massive evidence of
Waldheim's Nazi past were
uncovered. A new Am-
bassador would have to pre-
sent his credentials to
Waldheim, a diplomatic
ceremony unacceptable to
Israel under current
It was a festive occasion
with a special purpose the
glamour and glitter of the
formal evening wear affair
and the purpose of raising
life-saving, life-giving
dollars to help tens of
thousands of Jewish men,
and women and children, in
a tribute to a world of
Jewish need by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale at the Major
Gifts Dinner on behalf of file
1987 Federation/United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
The event, a spectacular
success, held Thursday
evening, Dec. 4, at the Mar-
riott's Harbor House Resort
Hotel on the Fort Lauder-
dale Oceanside, surpassed
the expectations of those
most closely associated with
the program launching the
'87 drive for $7.2 million.
Some 200 people gathered
and pledged their heartfelt
support to herald the open-
ing of the Jewish com-
munity's major philan-
thropy. Those attending
made a minimum family gift
of $10,000 to the 1987 cam-
paign. The amount pledged
for Project Renewal-Kfar
Saba for '87 was also includ-
ed in qualifying for the
black-tie meeting.
With optimistic anticipa-
tion, guests mingled during
the cocktail reception before
proceeding into dinner.

In Israel, Ethiopian Jews are
learning to live in a modern
world ... to be partners in pro-

Romania, 10,000 elderly Jews just

service so vital to our strength as
a community.
All in large part, because our

CRC Focuses on Church-State Issue
On Sunday, Nov. 9, the Com-
munity Relations Committee of
the Jewish Federation, under the
chairmanship of Richard Entin,
held its first community-wide
The guest speaker was Phil
Baum of the American Jewish
Congress, who spoke on the cur-
rent activities associated with the
Church-State agenda.
"The Jewish community needs
to focus more attention on the
political movement in the Fun-
damentalist Christian Community
as the 1988 election approaches,"
Baum stated. "We also need to
monitor actions under the Equal
Access Law that not allows
religious groups in our public
schools. Hopefully, Congress will
also be able to thwart future
'prayer-in-8chool' amendments
which may be introduced in the
near future."

Daren to Lead Cash Update
Drive for '86 Federation/UJA
Friday, December 5, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 3 .-
News wire/U.S. A.
"We had to cut our allocations
to our local agencies because we
couldn't meet our Federa-
tion/UJA cash commitment and
add to that poor collections and
someone in this community, na-
tionally and internationally is go-
ing to suffer."
Gladys Daren of Tamarac,
Federation Treasurer's Commit-
tee chair, has once again assumed
the all-important task of raising
urgently needed cash before the
year's end to help the tens of
thousands of Jewish men, women
and children through Federa-
tion/UJA support.
In an address to key campaign
leaders, Daren stated, "it's time
to act and react we're in a very
special situation here, a very dif-
ficult situation in a difficult
economy, but no one's going to
give up. Within the coming
month, my cash update team will
be working tirelessly to turn
pledges into cash."
Daren reminds everyone, "The
Federation can't pay its alloca-
tions to agencies in pledges. We
write checks." She points out that
this year it is very advantageous
to pay pledges before Dec. 31.
Because of the new tax laws, peo-
ple should consider prepaying
their 1987 gift for substantial tax
She indicated, "On Jan. 1, tax
rates will drop for most
Americans. This means the tax
savings on your philanthropic gift
may be greater this year than
next. That is one more incentive
to send cash in by Dec. 31 to
help meet Jewish needs that can't
wait at home, in Israel and around
the world. Please send your check

court-ordered payment to cover out-of-pocket expenses incurred
by ADL during the political extremist's failed libel suit against
the agency, the ADL announced. The order to pay came from the
Virginia District Court, which rejected LaRouche's claim that he
was defamed when described as an "anti-Semite" and a "small-
time Hitler" by an ADL official on the NBC-TV program "First
Camera" in March 1984.

Dear Major Contributor
of Federation/UJA
Time Is Money
The time is now. The money is yours. You can share
your substantial philanthropic tax benefits with
Federation/UJA by acting swiftly.
As you can see from the headlines, it is extremely
likely that sweeping changes in our tax laws will take
effect over the next few years. The consequences of
these changes are still unclear.
However, one thing is obvious: a charitable con-
tribution either in cash or as a gift of appreciated
property (with a long-term holding period) will very
likely produce a greater tax benefit this year than
next. The future deducibility of gifts of property is
unclear due to the proposed change involving the
taxation of long-term capital gains as ordinary in-
come. In any event, the message is clear rather
than pledge now and pay later, it would be much more
beneficial to pay now in order to take full advantage of
the tax law as it stands today and avoid the likely
decline in the value of deductions in future years.
We urge you during this period of major revision of
the tax laws to consult your own tax advisor. Federa-
tion/UJA is ready to assist you and your advisors in
carrying out your charitable contribution program if
so desired. We will also, in this regard, attempt to
keep you, our supporters, informed of changes affec-
ting the charitable contribution provisions as Con-
gress proceeds to enact the Tax Reform Act of 1986.

Even those aware of its record of brutality were surprised that
Syria could have coldly conspired to plant a bomb on Israeli El Al
commercial airliner carrying 375 passengers, including over 200
Americans. The shock comes not so much from the fact that the
attempted terrorist act was heinous that in itself would not
stop Syria but that as ruthless and calculating a man like Presi-
dent Hafez al-Assad would assume the considerable risk of
America's and Israel's retaliation had the attempted mass
murder taken place.
The flight originated in New York and, had the bomb not been
detected by an alert Ei Al security guard in London, the number
of Americans killed would have far exceeded the one lost in the
bombing of West Berlin's La Belle discotheque the incident
that triggered the April 16 U.S. bombing of Libya.
The British reacted by breaking diplomatic relations. This may,
in part, deprive Syria of the diplomatic facilities and privileges
that has permitted its state-sponsored terrorism to flourish. Bri-
tain could not have done less for this outrage, but it and other
nations which have pledged themselves to take concerted action
The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
against international terrorism surely could have done more.
The United States recalled the American ambassador a
laudable gesture, but nevertheless a minimal response to what
had been attempted.
The Europeans reacted by rebuffing strong British pressure to
adopt punitive sanctions and rejected a British proposal to recall
their ambassadors even temporarily from Damascus. The French
response was typical for the French. Accommodate and ap-
pease the aggressor in the vain hope that by currying favor he will
not attack.
The El Al incident was an attempt at mass murder of innocent
passengers, many of them American citizens. The United States
has admirably led the fight against international terrorism, most
notably against Libya. In the wake of irrefutable evidence of
Syrian guilt, our government should impose more appropriate
sanctions against her as well.
Why PLO Operates
Offices in USA?
The recent media focus on sUte-sponsored international ter-
rorism should not blind us to the usual PLO kind. The October ter-
rorist grenade attack on a crowd leaving prayers and ceremonies
at Jerusalem's Western Wall adds another to the long list of
crimes for which the PLO is infamous.
But blame for this attack and for PLO terror in general
does not lie solely with the perpetrators of the atrocity. Nor
should it be confined to those states like Syria and Libya that
sponsor terrorism by providing the PLO with training, diplomatic
facilities, weapons and safe haven.
Also guilty, notes a recent editorial in the New York Post, are
"men in pin-striped suits who generate the cash to fund the PLO's
ongoing assault on civilization. PLO Chairman "Yasir Arafat
presides over a multi-billion dollar business empire as big as many
of America's Fortune 500 companies."
"He may look like he can't afford razor blades," noted the Post,
"but the fact is that he's chairman of the board of a vast con-
glomerate with interests in banking, real estate, agriculture,
manufacturing, hotels, airlines, securities and narcotics."
No one knows for certain how much the PLO is worth.
Estimates range from about $6 billion to $14 billion.
British journalist James Adams, in his forthcoming book, The
Financing of the PLO, states that the PLO earns at least $1 billion
a year from investments alone. Another $100 million a year is
received in subsidies some would say "protection money"
from Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia, as well as from a five-
seven percent "liberation tax" deducted from the wages of
Palestinians living in Arab countries.
The PLO's enormous holdings are said to be hidden away in
bank accounts, dummy corporations and investment portfolios in
Switzerland, West Germany, Britain, Mexico, the Cayman
Islands, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein, and even on Wall Street.
The PLO also owns the Arab Bank Ltd. in Jordan with assets
exceeding $12 billion. The PLO has major stakes in a Belgian
charter airline and Maldive Airways, and 25 percent of the San-
dinista controlled Aeronica airline in Nicaragua.
And, until the Israeli incursion into Lebanon in 1982, the PLO
reportedly made $300 million a year trafficking in hashish from
Lebanon's Bekka valley.
Unknown to many Americans, the PLO operates two offices in
the United States, the Palestine Information Office (PIO) in
Washington and PLO Observer Mission to the United Nations in
New York. The PLO and its representatives in Washington are,
in fact, registered foreign agents of the PLO. The U.S. Attorney
General's office has not yet offered an official legal opinion on
why the U.S. Government continues to allow an office accredited
to a terrorist organization to operate in the U.S.
Why A Jew Moves to Israel:
An Intensely Personal View

Some of us are haunted. We
dwell in tight little rooms. The
front wall is our future, the back
wall is our past, and we can barely
move about without touching one
of them. Through the walls, we
can always see a past that could
have been, a future that one day
might be. Being the son of
Holocaust survivors, being a prac-
tical Zionist, being a Jew who
understands, places you in this
Only some of us dwell in these
rooms, and each of us for a dif-
ferent reason. In my case, it was
the Holocaust. On a personal
level, I still feel the anguish of my
mother who as a child was pushed
by her mother out of the air vent
of a train bound for Treblinka, and
my father who discovered her leg
protruding from a mass grave. By
night and by courage these Polish
youngsters survived in the woods
for two years. When they emerg-
ed from the forest, convinced that
all Jews in the world except
them had been killed, they
nonetheless decided to continue
living as Jews even if they were
the last ones on earth. And I
believe there was a reason.
On an intellectual and historical
level, I investigated the political
and economic undercurrents of
the Holocaust era, and know the
blood and souls lost to bring the
Jewish people to a state of their
own. Deals made with Germany.
Choices of how many could be sav-
ed, and which ones they would be.
How monumental were the
sacrifices. How prodigious was
the vision. And still one wakes in
the middle of the night and asks,
"Was it madness or was it
genius?" Some of us are haunted.
And in these little rooms, there is
often silence, but not peace.
There is only one way out for a
true believer: the great iron door
at the front. Whether you live in
Chicago or Los Angeles or New
York, if you can muster the emo-
tional courage to open this door,
and walk through, you step into
Eretz Yisrael, the Jewish
How many of us have never
understood the word "Zionism."
How many young naive Jewish
minds have declared their fervent
support of Israel, and in the next
breath, declare "But I'm no
Zionist." Brainwashed by a hostile
world and their own mental
laziness, many fail to comprehend
the simple two-word definition of
the complex concept known as
"Zionism." The two words are
"Jewish nationalism" or "Jewish
self-determination." If you believe
that Jews, like other minority
groups, possess the right of self-
determination, you believe in
Zionism. When you adopt that
concept as a beacon of your own
life path, you become a Zionist.
You can't buy your way in with
bonds, or speeches, or aphorisms.
Jews claim victory in Israel mere-
ly by surviving, merely by being
here. Therefore, to be the most ac-
tive Zionist, all you need to is sur-
vive here.
For those Jews who are either
oppressed by or who stand in the
clear sight of institutional anti-
Semitism in Iran, in Austria, in
France, in Argentina, in Russia
the move to Israel is an ascent to a
better present. For American
Jews, coddled and insulated, the
move to Israel is a material step
down, but a spiritual step up
toward a better future.
American Jews are everywhere
in Israel. The same ones you know
from home, you meet here. They
are visiting, or they themselves
have moved here. But watch the
way people interact once they ar-
rive here. Strangers passing on
the street asking for directions
become instant friends. The
pretense and pressurizing is gone
from their faces. In a word, the
biggest bore in America comes to
Israel and becomes a mensch. The
country does that to people.
And when you arrive you
discover so much more personally
how precious is this destiny,
because even the lifeless rocks jut-
ting are inspiring. You know that
Jewish blood has been spilled even
over these rocks, and on every
inch of this land. When you walk
here, you must walk carefully, lest
you intrude too rudely on the
echoes and memories of men and
women who have perished .. .
sometimes on the spot, sometimes
elsewhere in the world but with
this spot in mind.
And no place in this land
transduces electricity more than
the city of Jerusalem, the most
magnificent and satisfying city in
the world. Not Tel Aviv, the
modern city of decades, but
Jerusalem, the ancient city of cen-
turies. It is here, astride the hills,
among the piety and secular
reverence, amidst the conflict of
plural Judaic mainstream, in the
presence of the mystic setting sun
that each afternoon drops large
and golden over the horizon, it is
here at the juncture of world
human passion, that Israel is its
most exhilarating.
Jerusalem has always been a
Jewish city. It will always remain
a Jewish city. Never again to be
divided. More blood will be spilled
to insure it, and everyone here
knows it. They just aren't sure
whether it will be a war with Syria
in the coming months, or an explo-
sion from a paper bag in the com-
ing minutes.
The concomitant thrill, tension
and tranquility of this land is a
great joy to those we leave behind.
The experience is the same for
many young people who come.
Zionism, yes, Zionism, but please
for someone else's boy. My.
mother wept, my father too.
Stronger than Hitler, but weaker
than the moment at the airport,
they both wept. And I did too.
Coming here means infants
separated from their grand-
parents, children from their
mothers and fathers. Families are
at once cleaved apart, and pulled
together by the decision. Moving
to Israel means turning away
from all that you knew, for so
much that is uncertain. Lives and
loves you touched will claim to
stay in touch. But it is another
world. When America sleeps, the
minds of Israel are abuzz with the
new day's excitement. Only when
our day is done, does America
begin to rise, and by that time in
Israel we are ready for reflection
and then sleep. We drift apart
from other existence, and those
within it.
This is understood by all involv-
ed often disbelieved, but intrin-
sically understood. And so, at the
airports, Jewish people weep.
Herzl said, "Old prisoners do not
willingly leave their cells." I add
this: "When they do, their com-
rades and loved ones mourn the
But dispersion and return is the
essence of Jewish history. I have
opened the door, left my little
room and passed over to the other
side. It is a hard life here. No one
knows how long one can stay. Ex-
perience shows that the great
door swings both ways, and peo-
ple sometimes cannot help but re-
enter. But the first night I was
here, sitting in my loft at mid-
night, looking out the window at
the fantasy of flickering lights
among the hills below, I turned
the TV on just in time to hear the
always moving national anthem.
"Hatikva," sung by dreamers in
Germany and Prague in the
1930's who could not yet come,
and by the desperate in the
1940's, huddled in leaking boats
secretly sailing the high seas for
this land. When I hear Hativka, I
remember that in Hebrew, it
means "hope."

Young Business and Professional
Division Hold Provocative Meeting
The Young Business and Pro-
fessional Division of the Jewish
Federation recently invited Susan
Rose Symons, MS,
psychotherapist with the Center
for Counseling Services in Planta-
tion, to speak on sexual roles and
Symons discussed the subject
from an individual's physical,
emotional and spiritual point of
view. Her presentation was most
informative and thought-
provoking to the audience of
young professionals.
Symons is very active in the
Fort Lauderdale Jewish communi-
ty serving as vice chair of the
Business Executive Network as
well as holding the position of vice
president of Temple Beth Yam in
East Fort Lauderdale.
She is also a member of the
Oceanside Cabinet of Federation,
Women's Division participant and
a member of the Federation's
Leadership Development Fast
Track program. She recently par-
ticipated in the Chazak Communi-
ty Mission to Israel.
The Young Business and Pro-
fessional Division will hold its first
social fund-raiser on- Saturday
evening, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. at the
Holiday Inn, Sunrise Blvd. and
A1A. Couvert is $25 per person
and reservations can made by call-
ing Melissa Martin at the Federa-
tion, 748-8400.

From the Desk of the
Foundation Chairman ...
Your Accountant
Knows Best!
"Is 1986 the best year to make a gift to the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale's Endowment Fund?
Your accountant will probably answer with an emphatic
"YES." The recently passed Tax Reform Act indicates that there
will be a distinct advantage in making substantial gifts before the
end of this year. You and the North Broward County Jewish com-
munity can benefit from your generous donation to the Federa-
tion's Endowment Fund.
For more information on how your gift can:
provide you income for life, or
allow you to recommend future distributions to charities, or
perpetuate your annual gift to the 1987 Federation/UJA cam-
paign, call either your accountant or Federation's Foundation of-
fice, Janice Salit, director, at 748-8400.
Remember, it may never again cost you as little to make a
generous contribution to help your Jewish brethren as it will bet-
ween now and December 31. You too can maximize your
charitable contributions before the end of 1986 and improve your
fiscal fitness, strengthening our Jewish community's future.

A stellar concert entitled "A
Joyous Festival of Music" featur-
ing the Sunrise Symphonic Pops
Orchestra and noted guest
soloists, will be held on Sunday
afternoon, Dec. 21, at 2 p.m. at
Omni auditorium at the north
campus of Broward Community
College on Coconut Creek Blvd. in
Pompano Beach.
Sponsored by the Central Agen-
cy for Jewish Education of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, the concert will
highlight light classical selections,
Broadway show tunes and Jewish
and Israeli'medlies. Conductor of
the orchestra will be Tony Pandy
with Bernie Knee and Claudia
Arieh and Rhoda Dagan, con-
cert co-chairmen, indicated that
the concert would benefit Jewish
education in the North Broward
community. Mr. Dagan said, "We
are proud to bring to our com-
munity a concert on this high
cultural level and enhance Jewish
education at the same time."
Vocalists will include Bernie
Knee, who has sung on many occa-
sions with the Sunrise Orchestra
to wide acclaim, and Claudia Gen-
tiel, the possessor of a magnifi-
cent lyric voice.
Louis Papier serves as the con-
cert master, and was the founder
of the orchestra, along with Max
Tour. The Sunrise Symphony
group is now in its ninth year, and
is the official orchestra of the City
of Sunrise, and has appeared at
Bailey Hall, the Sunrise Musical
Theatre and in synagogues
throughout the area to an en-
thusiastic reception.
Tickets for the concert are pric-
ed at $7, $6, and $5 and are
available from the office of the
Central Agency for Jewish Educa-
tion at 748-8400, or from the con-
cert chairpeople, 741-1061 or at
the Omni box office.
The concert is part of the expan-
ding adult education programm-
ing for the North Broward com-
munity developed by the Central
Agency for Jewish Education.
What do they have in common?
Botanically all three are classified as fruit,
and each is highly nutritious in its own way.
Buckwheat is the best source of high biological protein in the entire plant
kingdom very close to the protein level of whole milk solids. Kasha,
the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel, is rich in potassium,
phosphorous, fiber and vitamin B, and NO CHOLESTEROL. Thus, it is
an economical food high in balanced protein and it's delicious, too!

MORE THAN a million times in the past year, a motor vehicle
was stolen in the United States, at an estimated cost to the motor-
ing public of more than five billion dollars. There are specific
steps that all motorists can take to reduce their risk of becoming
- Park in areas that are well-lighted.
- Park with front wheels turned sharply to right or left, to
make towing more difficult.
- Keep tape decks, CB's, packages and valuables out of sight.
- When parking in commercial lot or garage, leave only the ig-
nition key with the attendant.
- Keep license or registration in your wallet or purse. If left in
car, the thief can resell it.
- If you have a garage, use it.
Of course, one of the most effective means of protecting your
vehicle is to always lock it and pocket the key. Especially when
you stop "just for a minute," such as at a convenience store.

Deborah Fuller Hahn.
A tapestry is woven of many
threads. Each is unique some
long, some short, some heavy,
some thin. The colors are as
varied as the spectrum. Yet a
tapestry is more than a picture, it
is a work of love and patience ...
stitch by stitch, thread by thread,
it is a work of art. So it is with
Women's Division, each woman
adds her own special dimension.
Each meeting and each mission
attended by a woman enhances
her own individuality, as a person
and as a committed Jew.
On Oct. 30, just a few short
weeks ago, 32 Jewish women
from all over the United States
met to begin a one-week odyssey
that would take them across the
land of Israel and make them all
sisters. We ranged in various ages
and stages of life from a young
mother (who was two months into
another pregnancy) to those of us
who are grandmothers. We had
several things in common ... all
were committed to at least a
$10,000 pledge to the 1987 cam-
paign and each had left her family
back home so that she could ex-
pand her understanding of Eretz
Yisrael. All of us had visited Israel
in the past, but most had never
traveled with the National UJA
Women's Division. Esther
Lerner, Alvera Gold, and I
represented Fort Lauderdale,
Florida. I had the additional
pleasure of making the journey
with my own sister, June Fuller
Sloane, from New York. June is
an active member of both the
Long Island Women's Division
and the Business and Professional
Division of that area.
Using the King David Hotel in
Jerusalem as a base, the 'Lion of
Judah Ruby Mission,' visited a
Project Renewal neighborhood,
listened to a concert in a tree
house during a thunder storm,
and met with actors of the
"Habima," Israel's National
Theatre. Having traveled to Israel
on at least 30 different occasions
in the past (with family, alone, and
on many missions), I am well
aware that EVERY trip is the
best. This mission certainly ranks
pretty high on any list!
We visited the "Luz" Solar
Energy Hi-Tech Industry and
were made aware of how Israeli
technology will change the face of
world energy in the future. Morris
Zilka, Director of the World
Zionist Organization, took us on a
visit to an Arab Girls School in
Jerusalem. We met the students
and their teachers and learned the
importance of the education of the
Arabs living in Israel.
A lecture by Lt. Col. Ra'anan
Gissin of the Israel Defence
Forces was both informative and
inspiring. He spoke of Israel as
the focal point of worldwide media
attention. He said, "There is
nothing that is not told or reveal-
ed about Israel, and it is appear-
ing every night on prime time. Yet
the world understands so little.
The security of the state of Israel
is the preservation of a dream, the
collective consciousness of
millions. It is the true victory of
mind over matter." He informed
us about terrorist activity and the
Israeli response to the Syrian in-
volvement in Lebanon. Addi-
tionally Col. Gissin said, "In order
to fight terrorism, there is a need
for international cooperation.
There is need for unilateral
preventive measures by all coun-
tries afflicted by this scourge."
Very near to the Wall on Friday
evening, Maxine Schwartz, of
Miami, conducted a very personal
service for us which brought to
the group a beautiful feeling of
Shabbot. Words cannot adequate-
ly describe another very poignant
and meaningful ceremony coo-
ducted on our visit to Yad
Va&hem. In memory of the six-
million, we laid a wreath and
flowers on each "camp." Names
that are carved in the floor of this
black granite room... Auschwitz,
Buchenwald, Mauthausen,
Treblinka, etc. .. The Holocaust
was a vivid picture in every per-
son's mind that afternoon.
A visit to a vocational training
center for young Ethiopians pro-
vided a chance to see where some
of our funds from "Operation
Moses" were used. Those talented
and energetic people were learn-
ing the art of print making. It was
almost inconceivable to realize
that less than two years ago most
of them were starving in one of
the world's worst famines. At that
time, they had never seen any
type of machinery, some did not
even know how to climb steps. Yet
here they were, in the land of
Israel, speaking modern Hebrew,
using screwdrivers, and efficient-
ly operating printing presses. We
were introduced to another group
of Ethiopians who were studying
to become nurses. They had been
among those young men and
women who had received some
form of higher education in their
native land and were now able to
go on to obtain a degree in
A particular fascinating after-
noon included a visit to the home
of Theo Zibenberg. Mr. and Mrs.
Zibenberg live in a new building
opposite the Western Wall inside
of old Jerusalem. For the past
several years, Mr. Zibenberg has
been digging up his basement. In
his excavating, he has uncovered
thousands of years of Jewish
history. We saw evidence of an-
cient rooms, a family mikv and
one for guests, and a three thou-
sand year old civilization lived
anew. Fran Alpert, an Israeli
originally from Chicago, took us
on a tour of the rooftops and digs
of old Jerusalem. Her immense
knowledge of the archaeological
finds is truly amazing. Both Fran
Alpert and Theo Zibenberg
brought us a sense of the continui-
ty that is the real heart of the
Jewish people.
Shulamit Shamir, the wife of
Prime Minister Yitzak Shamir,
was our special guest for dinner
one evening. A delightful woman,
she immediately won all our
respect with her warmth, wit and
charm. Another evening provided
the opportunity to share thoughts
and ideas with intelligent and suc-
cessful Israeli women accomplish-
ed in a variety of fields, from
politics to the arts. Dr. Nitza
Shapiro-Libai is advisor to the
Prime Minister on the Status of
Women. Judge Blanche Kay
serves on the Tel Aviv District
Court. Ziva Lahat is Tel Aviv
University's Director of the
Library of Social Sciences and
Management for the last 25 years.
Haviva Avi-Gai is the legal advisor
to Na'amat, the Women's Division
of the Histadrut Trade Union.
Michal Modai is Chair of the
World Wizo Executive and a
member of the Presidium of the
Zionist General Council. Dafna
Cohen-Mintz is in charge of public
relations for the Israel Chamber
Orchestra. And as special treat
for my sister and I, we renewed
our acquaintance with Esther
Rubin, widow of artist Reuven
Rubin. Today Esther sits on the
board of the Tel Aviv Museum and
remains active in Israeli cultural
life. Just some of the many women
we were privileged to meet during
this remarkable week.
There were these experiences
... and many more. One could
write a book and not cover every
interesting facet of a mission to
Israel. Yet there is one component
not yet mentioned that is most im-
portant. The participants! The
tapestry of our mission was woven
of threads from all across America
. Although born a Jew she grew
up without knowing too much
about it ... As is the case with
several others, Barbara's involve-
ment began as a married woman.
Through the influence of her
mother-in-law, today in her
nineties, Barbara learned what it
really means to be a Jew. She is
now an active member of her Cin-
cinnati Jewish community. Ellen,
a beautiful young woman who
lives near Chicago, comes from
one of UJA's most dedicated
families. Her Zionist heritage ex-
tends back for generations. Her
participation probably began in
childhood. Marilyn, from Los
Angeles had an entirely different
story. Her daughter was rescued
from a California cult. When
Marilyn called for help from UJA
and Jewish Family Service, she
was immediately answered. Her
daughter was sent to a kibbutz in
Israel where she lived for a while
and married a kibbutznik. They
now reside in California where she
recently earned a long overdue
college degree. Since her
daughter's rehabilitation, Marilyn
does volunteer service for the
elderly Jewish community and has
become active in her own
Women's Division.
Each of us wears our ruby-eyed
Lion of Judah with a special feel-
ing. The threads of our portion of
the Women's Division tapestry
are many .. they vary each
from the other. Interwoven with
those of the past, they will in-
fluence many more generations.

"The future of Israel and the
Jewish communities around the
world depends on our commit-
ment to Judaism here at home.
That means providing support for
a network of agencies and ser-
vices in North Broward County
with funds raised by our 1987
Jewish Federation/United Jewish
Appeal annual campaign."
Sheldon S. Polish met with cam-
paign cabinet leaders represen-
ting Divisions and major areas
who will hold their fund-raising
events during December.
Polish emphasized that "our
community commitment will not
only make a difference locally, but
will reach out and touch the lives
of young and old alike, not only at
home, but also in Israel and in 33
lands around the world."
He told the leaders that, "It is
your distinctive brand of dedica-
tion that gives our Federation its
exceptional energy and drive.
Every year we renew a bond with
each other .. Jews asking other
Jews to take responsibility for
Jewish well-being. This is the
secret to our success. It is how we
turn hope into promise and pro-
mise into reality... time and time
again. But our success must never
become an excuse to give or do
less. Rather, it is an opportunity
to give and do more."
In addressing the key leaders,
he indicated that the functions be-
ing held in the month of December
will be the vanguard for the '87
drive, a record-breaking $7.2

Leading the Way for UJA. .
Young Women's Leadership Cabinet
During the mid-1970s, a small
group of prominent, young Jewish
women were invited to the na-
tional office of the United Jewish
Appeal to discuss the concept of
developing a Cabinet of women
with outstanding leadership
achievement. The founding group
embraced the idea of a Cabinet
comprised both of dedicated
career women and committed pro-
fessional volunteers. These
women would bring proven local
leadership abilities to the national
UJA arena in order to constitute a
representative group of dynamic
trainers and fund-raisers who
would develop programs and op-
portunities to reach out to other
Jewish women across the United
States. Thus, in 1976, UJA
created the Young Women's
Leadership Cabinet.
The primary focus of the
YWLC, is to identify, motivate,
educate and involve today's
women in the UJA network of in-
ternational support services.
Cabinet women from different
walks of life from federated and
non-federated communities
share common concerns and
mutual goals. Working together,
this cadre of young leaders brings
a new vision and an invigorated
approach to contemporary Jewish
living and to Federation/UJA
Full participation in the
Cabinet's activities, as well as in
the annual training retreat, pro-
vides a rich opportunity to in-
crease members' knowledge and
skills. These are then translated
and communicated through local,
regional and national seminars,
missions to Israel, community
consultant programs and a wide
range of fund-raising activities. In
addition to national activities,
Cabinet women maintain a high
level of local community
Since its inception, the Young
Women's Leadership Cabinet has
accomplished much. The Cabinet
has published the first comprehen-
Jo Ann Levy
sive handbook for soliciting to-
day's working women. They have
held numerous seminars and
training programs for lay and pro-
fessional community workers to
acquire new skills in the areas of
campaigning, outreach and pro-
gramming. Cabinet women have
traveled throughout the country
visiting communities to offer
resource assistance and to ad-
dress groups on a large variety of
stimulating Jewish topics. The
YWLC combines creative
energies with UJA's Young
Leadership Cabinet to produce
the overwhelmingly successful
and meaningful Washington Con-
ferences. The inauguration of the
career women's missions to Israel
has provided a national UJA link
to local professional groups.
It is a goal of the UJA Young
Women's Leadership Cabinet to
provide role models for other
young Jewish women to emulate
in their personal and financial in-
volvement. Barbara Wiener,

One of the questions I'm always
asked is: "Why do you choose to
play Kle/mcr 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 the same feelings It
touches them in ways no other music
docs. Which is why I play Klezmer
music-to serve the community by
playing music thai brings together
Jews from different backgniunds
Playing Kle/mcr music is stren-
uous. That's one reason why I lake
care of myself. So I exercise and
watch what I eat Bui 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.

already are
a Zionist...
If you believe in the unity of the Jewish people and
the centrality of Israel in Jewish life...
If you stand for strengthening the democratic State
of Israel...
If you support the ingathering of the Jewish people
to its historic home, Eretz Yisrael...
If you advocate the preservation of the Jewish
people and their identity through education and
cultural programming...
If you care about the protection of Jewish rights,
and all minority rights, everywhere...
If you believe in these principles of the Zionist
Movement, then you already believe as all Zionists
But are you acting on your beliefs?
Zionism today-
It all started with a dream
Zionism emerged from the deep yearning of a
people to return to their Biblical homeland. A people
dispersed by time and terror, seeking a new national
movement incorporating aspirations so often
challenged by pogroms and torturous times.
It was these aspirations for freedom that were so
similar to those that gave birth to America. And their
fulfillment was the creation of the State of Israel, in
a way that resonates strongly in the hearts of all
Americans. And in the million who have joined
the Zionist Movement.
Is the Zionist Movement
the way?
Without an organized movement in
which Jews are publicly identified, there
can be no democratic action. Not for
peace, nor for the many monumental
accomplishments of recent years.
The resettlement in Israel of
1,800,000 immigrants from over
100 countries. The vast educa-
tional program for many
hundreds of thousands of
youngsters in Israel and in
the United States. The ini-
tiation of the struggle to
rescue Soviet Jewry,
Ethiopian Jewry, and
Jews in peril through-
out the globe.
You can continue this endeavor as part of a mean-
ingful American Jewish community by lending voice
to the Zionist Movement. By standing up and being
counted. This is the American way. the way for the
1,000,000 Americans who presently declare with
pride, "I am a Zionist."
How can I he effective?
1. Affiliate. Join any of the 16 American Zionist
organizations. Just mail the coupon for membership
information. Today.
2. Participate. Come to Philadelphia, where
American democracy began! From January 4th to
7th, 1987, Philadelphia will be home to the American
Zionist Assembly. The climax of our membership
campaign. Here you can be inspired by world-
renowned speakers, learn from celebrated educa-
tors, enjoy cultural and spiritual regeneration through
a striking series of programs. And
. most significantly, share in the
) decisions affecting Zionists the
world over. Ask for enrollment
and reservation details.
3. Vote. As a Zionist organization member, you will
be asked, in May 1987, to help elect delegates to the
31st World Zionist Congress in late 1987. Mour
answer has never meant more. The World Zionist
Congressthe parliament of the Jewish people-
is the only democratic legislative body for world
Jewry; your vote is their instrument. Raise your
hand high!

New Prime Minister

After just 14 months in office,
Egyptian Prime Minister Ali Lufti
was dismissed by President Hosni
Mubarak. Mubarak named
another economist. Atef Sedki to
the post. The appointment of
Sedki, head of Egypt's Central
Auditing Agency, came amid con-
tinuing reports of economic woes
and efforts by Cairo to
renegotiate or get new interna-
tional loans.
Asked about Egypt's extensive
system of subsidies for bread,
gasoline and other basics critiz-
ed by many foreign analysts
Sedki said "those with low in-
comes have a right to subsidies,
and this question already has been
studied" (Cairo Radio Nov. 10).
The new Prime Minister denied
there was a move to abolish sub-
sidies but added that "we do have
"leas on how to administer them
correctly and to ensure that they
reach those who deserve them."

Human Dimensions of Project Renewal
JERUSALEM - 1977, Israel's Premier Menachem
Begin undertook two major
historical decisions: to pursue the
peace offer made by Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat during a
dramatic visit to Jerusalem in
November of that year, and to
launch Project Renewal, the most
comprehensive program in
Israel's history of neighborhood
rehabilitation and social change.
Now more than eight years
after the two decisions were
made, it is clear that their impor-
tance to Israel's future and well-
being is almost unparalleled. Fur-
thermore, in the opinion of many,

nvolvement Of World Jewry
By now, the ongoing personal
inkage between Jews abroad and
esidents of the deprived
neighborhoods of Israel is an in-
separable part of Project Renewal
nd one that gives a unique mean-
ng and a whole new dimension to
the involvement of world Jewry
vith Israel.
Almost every neighborhood in
srael participating in Project
pienewal is twinned with a Jewish
ommunity abroad. In most com-
munity organizations, committees
f lay leaders responsible for Pro-
ect Renewal have been formed.
n the United States, the United
lewish Appeal acts as the liaison
vith Project Renewal
leighborhoods in Israel.
The UJA encourages mission
'roups and individuals to visit the
eighborhoods in Israel. At least
nee a year, the Project Renewal
ommunities of the Jewish corn-
unities abroad visit their twinn-
I neighborhoods.

Pledges By The San Diego
Jewish Community
According to Gerald Kobernick,
immediate past president of the
San Diego Jewish Federation, the
Jewish community of San Diego
pledged to raise $3.2 million for
the Kibbutz Galuyot neighborhood
in Kiryat Malachi. "So far we
have raised $2.8 million," Kober-
nick said, adding, "We are work-
ing now to complete the balance."
The community center facilities,
funded by the San Diego com-
munity, include a -dental clinic,
center for the elderly, youth room
and play center. The renovated
housing of the neighborhoods are
impressive, especially when com-
pared to the buildings that are still
awaiting renovation.
At the dinner tables that even-
ing, the mood was festive. The
food was authentic Moroccan,
cooked especially for the event by
the local residents, most of them
immigrants from North African
countries who came to Israel in
the early 1950's.
Howard Brotman, president of
the San Diego Federation, pledg-
ed in a short speech the continued
commitment of his community to
the future of the Kibbutz Galuyot
of Kiryat Malachi. Yossi Vanuno,
Mayor of the town, thanked the
American visitors, predicting that
one day Kiryat would be "a major
Israeli city."
The next day, back in the lux-
urious hotels of Jerusalem, many
of the delegates said the visit to
Project Renewal neighborhoods
was the "moat rewarding" and
"the best" day they had during
their visit to Israel.
Blossom Siegel, from Newport
Beach, California, said her visit to
the Project Renewal
neighborhood in Ashdod was a
highly emotional experience for
her, because it showed her "the
other side of Israel."
She said she believes that Pro-
ject Renewal helped the local
residents to develop "self-
confidence and pride in
themselves," and made American
Jews come face to face with
Israel's social problems. "This is
my first visit to Israel. I can
assure you it is not my last," she

There has been a Jewish com-
munity in Poland for almost 900
years, since the time of the First
Crusade. By 1939, Polish Jewry
numbered 3Vi million; after the
Holocaust all six of the major
death camps were located in
Poland there were one-tenth that
number. A series of pogroms in
1945-46 reduced the number to
250,000, which shrank dramatical-
ly following mass emigrations in
1957 (following governmental
liberation) and, particularly, 1968
(following government-sponsored
campaign of anti-Semitism.
Today, there are approximately
5,000 Jews left in Poland, of
whom only about one-third belong
to the organized community.
Although it witnessed a Bar Mitz-
vah in 1985, Polish Jewry has had
no rabbi, cantor, or ritual
slaughterer for many years. It is a
haunted community, haunted by
its great history and the
unassimilable horror of its im-
mediate past.
This book, the product of five
years of work, is a remarkable
journalistic-photographic portrait
of the Jews who remain. A non-
Jewish husband-and-wife team
who were active in the Solidarity
movement, Niezabitowska and
Tomaszweski first became in-
terested in Polish Jewry's radiant-
terrible past and miniscule pre-
sent in 1968, and began working
on this book in 1981, following
Solidarity's suppression.
In their wanderings throughout
the country, they encountered
considerable fear, mistrust and
cynicism. "Leave my corpse

them. Many articulate the pain of
being part of a tiny, dying com-
munity; some declare their com-
mitment to preserving the
religious or secular Yiddish
culture that was. Perhaps most
moving is Symon Szurmiej, Direc-
tor of the Jewish Theatre, who
told Niezebitowska, "I am a pro-
sthesis because, in fact, I am not
here. I do not exist ... I am
already on the other side. I have
only one passion left: to protect
the flame that has survived."
The couple does encounter the
Warsaw Jewish Circle, a kind of
havurah of a dozen or so young
people who have become pas-
sionately interested in their
heritage, maintain Jewish obser-
vance and even organized an
underground "Jewish Flying
University." While many of their
parents' odyaseys were from
religious homes to a commitment
to communism, their children
courageously have travelled in the
reverse direction, a far lonelier
journey. Niezabitowski and
Tomaszweski also introduce us to
Mateuz Kos, a teenager, who amid
the utilitarian, atheist and cynical
society that is contemporary
Poland, has become a ba'al
leshuvah (newly observant Jew).
As such, he is a symbol of commit-
ment in a community more
characterized by fear and
For the most part, however, the
small Polish Jewish community
feels, understandably, dwarfed by
the past (there is about one Jewish
cemetery for every ten Jews in
Poland). Yet the past, the rich
world of pre-Holocaust Polish
Jewry Hasidism, Yiddish
culture, the Bund, the Zionist
movement and so much else -
"seems as distant as the ancient
Etruscans do from the present
day inhabitants of Rome."
Given that the community
seems ineluctably destined to
disappear, Niezabitowska and
Tomaszewski have done a
magnificent job, in what is clearly
a labor of love, of recording its
last years. Tomaszewski's color
photographs, which are in-
terspersed throughout the text,
are expressive and evocative.
Unfortunately, because of its
price and bulk, Remnants is in
danger of being relegated to a cof-
fee table book. That would be a
great shame, for it is an enor-
mously moving, superb synthesis
of journalism and photography.
One can only hope that .
