News Correspondent Bernard Kalb to Keynote
1st City/Countywide Leadership Gifts Event
Bernard Kalb at
UJA event.
The North Broward
Jewish community will have
the opportunity to hear a
keynote address by Bernard
Kalb, former assistant
Secretary of State for
Public Affairs and a
distinguished former cor-
respondent for NBC-TV,
CBS-TV and the New York
Times, when he comes to
South Florida in early
Kalb will be the prominent
guest speaker at the newly
organized Leadership Gifts
Division Dinner, on behalf
of the Jewish Federation's
1987 United Jewish Appeal
campaign, Saturday even-
ing, Feb. 7, at the Marriott
Harbor Beach Resort on
Fort Lauderdale's gold
coast. Chairpersons of the
first City/Countywide event
are Elaine Conn of Planta-
tion and Lee Rauch of
Oceanside, who told the
Floridian that all area
residents are eligible to at-
tend the event of special
significance to the Jewish
community, by contributing
a $1,800 minimum in-
dividual pledge to the '87
Federation/UJA campaign.
At the State Department,
Bernard Kalb's job was to
brief the public daily on U.S.
foreign policy. He had been
handpicked for the post by
the Secretary of State,
George Shultz, because of
his consistently high-tone
handling of information and
a journalistic career that
spanned more than three
decades. Kalb was senior
diplomatic orrespondent for
NBC News before he joined
the Reagan Administration.
Ironically, journalistic in-
tegrity was the heart of the
matter when Bernard Kalb
resigned from the State

Anne Frank and I were born
in the same generation. Her
mother and mine both lit the

night and prayed for peace.

Both of our fathers took loving
pictures of their young
daughter. Her childhood

Where are the grandchildren
of Anne Frank?
At a recent lecture on
Anne Frank
Jewish demographics a young
man, who has made a study of
these things said, "The Jewish
people are now at a point
where they are replacing
themselves." What does that
mean? Do my grandchildren
replace those lost? I cannot
believe that! One and a half
million Jewish children died
with Anne. Today, had they
lived, many of them would be
planning what to do for a
grandchild's Bar or Bat Mitz-
vah, or how much Chanukah
gelt each should receive this
year. So I think about the
grandchildren of Anne Frank,
and the others, and I wonder
... what would the world have
been like if...? And could it
have happened to us ...?
At the beginning of the 19th
century the Jews of Germany
were no longer required to live
in the ghetto, and the law
declared them equal. This new
legal status led to social and
cultural assimilation.
Frankfort had the second
largest Jewish population in
Germany and was (for the
most part) a tolerant city.
Jewish philanthropic organiza-
tions thrived, and Jews were
able to maintain their tradi-
tional life or assimilate into the
society of their neighbors.

had lived in Frankfurt since

Federation Planning & Budget Committee Stress Agency Needs
The importance of working
closely with our major Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal beneficiaries and agencies
was the important theme
stressed by members of the
newly formed Federation
Planning and Budget Commit-
tee, at a recent meeting held at
the West Oakland Park
Boulevard headquarters.
According to chairman John
Streng, Federation life
member, "The reason for the
formation of the new commit-
tee was that the old process
was no longer workable and
met with approval by all par-
ties involved. He said, "The
Federation is determined to
have the broadest possible par-
ticipation of leaders in the
North Broward Jewish com-
munity to have input into the
planning and budget process."
He continued, "The commit-
tee's responsibility is clearly
defined: to deal with short
term planning and make
recommendation to the
Federation Board of Directors
covering annual allocations to
local and national agencies.

community relations.
According to Sheldon S.
Polish, '87 general chair,
"There is an incredible amount
of work to be done and we are
the persons that can make it
happen." He cautioned that to-
day the drive for achievement
and search for fulfillment is
often built on the enjoyment of
"Beautiful homes, expensive
cars and fancy stereos are the
trappings of a successful life,"
he said, "But without an
aspect of caring for our own,
all of the acquisitions seem
hollow." r
The chairman asked the
leaders to rally around the
Federation because "It is the
umbrella organization that at-
tempts to meet the complex
needs of the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish communi-
ty, as well as the needs of Jews
in foreign lands and in Israel."
"As leaders of the Jewish
community, we have a respon-
sibility to deal with these
Sressing issues. We know that
ews everywhere are suscepti-
ble to terrorists. The hijackers
in Karachi asked for the
American passports first."
Sheldon Polish, who as cam-
paign chair, will be responsible
for leading the drive to raise a
record $7.2 million to help
Jews in need, acknowledged
that in our community, we are
living in tough economic times.
"We all know people who are
less fortunate than ourselves
and we have all had to face
drastic cuts just as our local
We must all stand together
to learn and listen and to
achieve success. We each
serve as part of the Federa-
tion's management team, and
we can make the difference."
Kenneth B. Bierman,
Federation executive director,
reiterated that Federation
must raise new dollars if the
agencies and local services
were to continue at the same
level. He said, "In order to ac-
complish that, we must raise
money from people who've
never been given the oppor-
tunity to participate in a
Federation campaign. We
must call on all of our friends,
neighbors, business associates
and get them involved in
Federation activities. Let's
give them the privilege of be-
ing part of our community. We
can t keep going back to the
same people and asking for
more and more. There are
many people living in North
Broward County who are not
involved in the campaign and

What ItTikesTo Be
A Riverside.
It takes years.
It took nearly 60 years to
build trust in a name. It took
leadership who helped set the
standards for Jewish funeral service
decades ago. Throughout the
years leaders such as Charles
Rosenthal and Carl Grossberg .
exemplified their belief that Jewish
funeral service is not merely a
business, but a solemn trust held
by funeral directors on behalf
of the families they serve.
Today the
Riverside tradi-
tion continues
under the
leadership of Kenneth J. Lassman
and a new generation of caring
managers. And today the name
Riverside, nurtured through six
decades, remains the most
respected name in Jewish funeral
service in the world.

In an interview with the
Floridian, Sherr said, "Educa-
tion is important, but we must
never take away from Israel to

ty. We cannot cut one or the
other, but must instead meet
both sets of needs. If Jewish

He pointed out that "The

unique in that there are 22
areas, each with similar but
varied interests. But all in all,
we all have the same concern,
the one concern that overrides
everything else and this is that

for the people of our communi-
ty to realize that the dollars we
raise have people at the other
end and that tor every dollar
raised, the need of a human be-

dollar. In the end, every

that a contribution is a state-
ment that we are committed to
Jewish survival!

National '87 UJA Chair Addresses
Federation Leaders on Meaningful Giving
: c Hi
Responding to the keynote
address by Martin F. Stein,
United Jewish Appeal 1987
National chairman, an
assembly of Federation/UJA
campaigners pledged a record-
breaking amount of dollars to
meet the ongoing needs facing
the Jewish community's major
Stein, who came to South
Florida this month to meet ex-
clusively with the North
Broward County men and
women, devoted his time and
energies to stress the impor-
tances of this year's drive,
first at a number of caucuses,
one-on-one sessions and most
prominently at the Major Gifts
Dinner, Dec. 4, at the Marriott
Harbor Beach Resort in Fort
At the formal event, which
launched the '87 Federa-
tion/UJA campaign for $7.2
million, Stein told the 200 pro-
minent key leaders that, We
are creating an historic Jewish
heritage for our children's
children. For the first time in
our history, we have the
privilege of developing both
the State of Israel, our
spiritual and physical
homeland, and a strong
Diaspora community. In fact,
the American Jewish com-
munity today is far more
united in purpose than ever
before, despite the significant
differences that continue to
exist among us."
He continued, "This dedica-
tion from you and the tens of
thousands of your community
friends and neighbors has
helped us to achieve this ex-
cellence in achievement
regardless of individual
religious or political convic-
tions. Your commitment to the
UJA means you've accepted
your share of responsibility for
Jewish survival. As long as
there are immigrants to be ab-
sorbed and land to develop in
Israel as long as there are
Jewish communities at risk
anywhere in the world as
long as there are Jewish in-
stitutions to support at home
your contribution to the
campaign will help make
Jewish history."
He emphasized that the
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Federation had come a long
way in a short time, and in-
dicated that the community
should stand tall having
achieved a record total of con-
tributions which ranks North
Broward County in the top ten
percent in Federations
throughout the U.S. and
Canada. "This," he said, "is in-
deed an honor to be proud of!"
Sheldon S. Polish, '87
Federation/UJA chair praised
Stein for the work he has
already accomplished as the
National chair and for bringing
this impetus of pride and sup-
port to the Greater Fort
Lauderdale community.
Already in 1987, the national
effort of the Federation/UJA
campaign has accomplished
more than $100,000 million,
more than 14 percent ahead of
last year. To date the 1986 na-
tional campaign has raised
more than $653 plus million.
Stein, a Milwaukee business
entrepreneur, has among his
many achievements served as
chairman of the Special Task
Force for Operation Moses, an
effort that mobilized a cam-
paign raising over $60 million
in less than four months for
the resettlement in Israel of
more than 10,000 Ethiopian
Cited for his dedication and
tireless energy he brings to his
role as a Jewish leader, he was
a UJA National vice chairman
and trustee, chairman of the
Milwaukee Jewish Federation,
Wisconsin Israel Bonds Cam-
paign and trustee of the
American Friends of Hebrew
His many civic and philan-
thropic endeavors include
chairman, Wisconsin Private
Sector Indo-Chinese Resettle-
ment Committee, where he
earned a commendation from
the Governor for his efforts, as
well as boards of Junior
Achievement, United Way,
Hunger Task Force, to name a

Zoya Leybin
It is entirely fitting that
Zoya Leybin be the guest
speaker at our Women's Divi-
sion Kol Ishah Event, on Feb.
9. As you can see from this col-
umn's logo, "Kol Ishah"
means "Woman's Voice." For
10 years Zoya Leybin raised
her voice to the two most
powerful governments in the
world. From 1973 until 1983,
she persistently asked both the
Soviet Union and the United
States to make it possible to
allow her daughter to join her
in America.
Yvette was a small girl of
seven years old when her
mother was forced to leave her
behind. The child's parents
had divorced years before and
she had never lived with her
father. Nevertheless he refus-
ed to sign the necessary per-
mission papers for his
daughter to emigrate because
it would jeopardize both his job
and the security of his new
wife and child. For the next
several years, Yvette stayed
with her father and step-
mother in Riga. She followed
in her own mother's footsteps
and became an accomplished
concert violinist. At 16 years
old, she moved out of the house
and set out on her own to ob-
tain permission to emigrate.
Another Jewish woman's voice
to be heard in the name of
Meanwhile Zoya continued
to write letters to President
Reagan, then- Soviet Premier
Yuri Andropov, and to officials
at the United Nations. She
remembered the strange and
convoluted strictures imposed
on her as an artist and a Jew,
during her own struggle to
leave Russia. Would she ever
see her oldest daughter again?
Long ago, Yvette's father and
mother had parted over what
he regarded as Zoya's
dangerous ambitions for
freedom in the west. By 1973,
Zoya had obtained the dozens
of signed references necessary
to be able to leave the country.
With her three year old
daughter, Emma, she traveled
first to Italy, then to Canada
before settling in San Fran-
cisco in 1977" Although she
had been denied the opportuni-
ty to take Yvette out of
Russia, she never gave up the
hope of having her daughter
live with her in America.
In the summer of 1983 the
Soviet Union granted Yvette
her precious exit visa. The
voyage to freedom had been
long and difficult. Mother and
daughter had both lifted their
voices to make it a reality.
They are astonishingly alike m
many ways: strong-willed,
talented, and bearing a strik-
ing resemblance to each other.
They both understood the
trauma of emigrating from the
Soviet Union. Could they now
understand each other? Zoya
had left a seven year old child
... she greeted a 17 year old
young woman.
After an initial period of ad-
justing to her new family and
new country, Yvette seems
well on her way to becoming a
success. Mother and daughter
have performed in concerts
with the San Francisco
Chamber Orchestra. Yvette
became a concert-master of
the San Francisco Youth Or-
chestra, making her concert
debut on March 10, 1985. She
has recently accepted a
scholarship at the Eastman
School of music in Rochester,
Zoya Leybin enjoys a
tenured position as a violinist
with the San Francisco Sym-
phony. Emma, 16 and Simona,
eight, are growing up in a free
country. Zoya is now married
to Mark Kaufman, a San Fran-
cisco attorney. The Woman's
Division of Greater Fort
Lauderdale will be especially
honored by her presence on
Feb. 9, at the Kol Ishah event
for it will also honor those
women in our community who
have raised their own voices to
commit at least one dollar a
day ($365) for the freedom of
Jews everywhere.

Slied to emigrate to Israel, Ida
fudel placed a banner outside
her apartment window. It
read, "KGB, Give Me A Visa
To Israel." For this desperate
display, she was tried for
"malicious hooliganism" and
sentenced to four years of in-
ternal exile. Ida was released
on March 20,1982 but then in-
formed that she could no
longer live in Moscow or any
other major city. She has been
allowed to live, alone and
under constant surveillance, in
Bendery, in the Moldavian
Republic. On October 23,1986
it was reported that "Ida
Nudel was removed from a
Moscow-bound bus while en
route to meet with Elie
Wiesel. Witnesses said she
was picked up by her arms and
legs and thrown from the vehi-
cle to the ground by three
KGB agents, who then took
her to their headquarters."

Helena Seidel Mai has been
an active and vocal member of
the Moscow refusenik com-

authored and signed many
petitions and appeals
highlighting the plight of
Soviet Jews, both to officials in
the USSR and abroad. In the
1970's, Helena translated
Milton Steinberg's book,
"Basic Judaism," into Rus-
sian. Helena and her husband,
Arkady Mai, regularly con-
ducted seminars on Jewish
culture and history until
recently, when Soviet
authorities ordered an end to
these gatherings. Since then, a
police officer is frequently sta-
tioned outside their door to
turn away visitors. She has
written. to the women of

Yehudit Nepomniashchy-
Levin became a refusenik in
1979, at the age of 17, when
her parents applied for exit
visas to Israel. Active in the
Odessa refusenik community,
the Nepomniashchy family has
been subject to extreme
harassment and abuse ever
since. In 1984, Yehudit became
engaged to Yakov Levin, a
fellow Hebrew teacher and

before their scheduled wed-
ding, Yakov was arrested and
charged with allegedly
"defaming the Soviet state

Israel Bonds Strives
Towards '$8 Billion Day'
Dr. Justin H. May, North
Broward Israel Bonds Cam-
paign chairman announced
that Fort Lauderdale has in-
tensified its cash collection ef-
forts "in order to help the
Bond Organization reach its $8
billion sales figure since 1951
as early as possible this month.
Israel Resnikoff is Cash Chair-
man for this community's
Israel Bond campaign.
"Some time during the
month of December," Dr. May
said, "the Bond Organization
will reach a milestone which
will be the most remarkable
achievement in the annals of
direct support for Israel."
On that day, Israel Bond
leaders will celebrate "Eight
Billion Dollar Day"
throughout the United States
and Canada, with one person
in each community receiving
the special Israel Shekalim
Award in appreciation of his or
her role in the local com-
munity's contribution to that
Israel Bonds have helped to
finance the development of
every aspect of Israel's
economy since the inception of
our campaign 35 years ago.
During these three and a half
decades, with the support of
more than a million Israel
Bond purchasers in the U.S.
and other countries in the free
world, Israel has built a
modern, technologically-
advanced economy. It is vital
that we mobilize as much cash
proceeds as possible in the
next few weeks here in our
community so that Israel can
continue its economic recovery
and the expansion of its
Dr. May added, "On $8
Billion Day, all of us who have
purchased and continue to pur-
chase Israel Bonds will be able
to take pride in what we have
helped to accomplish, and we
will look forward with con-
fidence to a future of stability
and growth for Israel."

we presented "Tzinderella"
(Cinderella) first, then
"Pinuzzio" (Pinocchio) and
now it's "Shnay Vyse."
MH: Do you follow the story

mountain of laughter. That's
what we, of the senior divi-

This year the celebration
falls on the third day of the
holiday and the lighting of the
fourth candle at night. "Let's
get together," says Allyn
Kanowsky, JCC Membership
Director. "Let's all watch the
lighting of the menorah, play
carnival games and enioy the
entertainment we are planning
for you. And the traditional
latke supper's included, too!"
The JCC is a major
beneficiary agency of the

The greatest motivating
force in my life has been
my passion. My passion
to be an accomplished
actress, to play inspiring
roles, to be a caring mother

my Jewish heritage.
My passion energizes
me. It gives me the
strength to go on no
matter how tired I get.
Because of my demand-
ing schedule, I try to take
care of myself. I exercise
regularly and eat healthy
foods. Another one of my
passions is coffee. Which
is why I drink Sanka*

fee. Sanka" gives me a
smooth and satisfying cup
of coffee. And it does it
without all that caffeine.
All of us have the
potential to be passionate.
All we need is to find
things we love to do. For
me, it can be something
as significant as playing a
challenging role in a new
play or something as sim-
ple as enjoying a cup of
Sanka* at home with my
family. I love
them both...

From the Desk of the Foundation Chair...
New Tax Idea to Consider
Editor'* Note: The following
is a service of the Foundation
of Jewish Philanthropies infor-
mation series, Jacob Brodzki,
1986 will be remembered as
the year in which the tax laws
were radically changed. Even
though the charitable contribu-
tion deduction survived largely
intact, the reduction of tax
rates makes planned giving
more important than ever.
Generally speaking, due to the
fact that the tax rates are
higher this year than they will
be in future years, charitable
contributions save more taxes
if made this year instead of in
future years.
A major portion of planned
giving, particularly with
regard to cash, is the tuning of
the gift itself. A check given to
a charitable organization late
in December 1986 is deductible
in 1986 despite the fact that it
may not be cashed, in the nor-
mal course of business, until
1987. Likewise, making a gift
through the use of a credit
card, even though the bill is
not paid until January or
February 1987, still con-
stitutes a tax deductible gift in
A more sophisticated ver-
sion of this type of delayed giv-
ing was described in a private
letter ruling recently released
Vou heard us right: Menorah wants you to shop and compare
pre-arrangement plans Then come to Menorah last With five
convenient locations, the finest options to custom-tailor your
plan, memorial gardens in Palm Beach and Broward. and
expert, counselors. Menorah Is the plan more Jewish families
are choosing And our plans are available at the lowest prices
quoted by anyone. So go ahead shop "them" first. Then come
to Menorah where your last choice is your best choice.

by the Internal Revenue
In 1982, a taxpayer decided
to give $150,000 to a
charitable organization and
structured the gift to take ad-
vantage of the higher 1982 tax
rates. Instead of giving the
money directly to the charity,
he established an irrevocable
bank letter of credit in favor of
the organization for $150,000.
Because of good credit, the
bank did not require the tax-
payer to deposit $150,000
before the letter of credit was
issued. The charity drew upon
the letter of credit as follows:
$40,000 in November 1982;
$60,000 in December 1982;
$40,000 in February 1983, and
$10,000 in June 1983. The tax-
payer was not charged by the
bank for any money until the
charity drew upon the letter of
credit. Yet the taxpayer took
the entire $150,000 deduction
in 1982, the year the ir-
revocable letter of credit was
issued and delivered.
After analyzing the ap-
plicable law, the IRS, in a
private letter ruling, indicated
that the deduction was proper-
ly taken in 1982. The theory is
that by establishing an ir-
revocable bank letter of credit
in favor of the charity, the tax-
payer became legally obligated
on the entire $150,000. Since
delivery was completed, the
entire amount was available to
the charity without restriction
and the taxpayer became en-
titled to the deduction.
A private letter ruling by the
IRS is binding only on the par-
ticular individual who re-
quested the decision.
However, it is a good indica-
tion of how the IRS considers
such matters.
Suppose in December 1986
an individual were to make a
five-year pledge of $30,000 per
year to his favorite charity. He
would obtain an irrevocable
letter of credit for $150,000 in
favor of the charitable
organization and deliver that
letter to the charity. Assume
that the individual actually
pays the pledge as planned:
$30,000 per year for five years
starting in 1986. Suppose fur-
ther that the charitable
organization retains that letter
of credit, without drawing
upon it, until the pledge is
fulfilled in 1991, at which time
it is surrendered back to the in-

Each year in Israel a torch is
lit at Modin, site of the tombs
of the Maccabees and raced in
relay fashion to the Great
Synagogue in Tel Aviv to light
the first candle for the celebra-
tion of Chanukah, an eight day
festival of lights which this
year begins at sundown, Fri-
day, Dec. 26.
The Annual Festival of
Freedom Chanukah in Coral
Springs takes place this year
on Sunday, Dec. 28 from 1 to 6
p.m. We too have established

reenactment of the Modin
Torch Run with our own Mac-
cabean Torch Runner, Coral

runs to the park and hands the
Maccabean Torch to the Rabbi
for the solemn and dramatic

sundown, the conclusion of
this year's festival.

Where Are Ann Frank's Grandchildren?

return to his family when his
father died. Pictures taken in
Frankfurt by Otto Frank,
after his marriage to Edith
Hollander, show a happy, lov-
ing, young Jewish family. On
March 23, 1933, Adolf Hitler,
able to channel the feelings of
uncertainty and discontent in-
to a mass political movement,
seized power. That year
150,000 political opponents to
the Hitler regime were sent to
concentration camps for
"reeducation." On April 1,
1933, Joseph Goebbels
declared an official boycott of
Jewish shopkeepers, doctors
and lawyers. Ten days later all
public servants with at least
one Jewish grandparent were
Edith and Otto Frank and
their two daughters moved to
the safety of Amsterdam.
There Mr. Frank started the
"Opekta Co." which did very
well. Anne and her sister,
Margot, attended the
Montessori School and enjoyed
an apparently carefree life,
much the same as we were do-
ing in America. There are
many snapshots of Anne, on
the beach, with friends, at bir-
thday parties, and with her
family. Although there were
some expressions of anti-
Semitism, most Jews in
Holland felt they had
assimilated into the Dutch
community. They did not
believe the Nazi could reach in-
to their homes.
The German invasion began
on May 10, 1940, and was a
complete surprise. Holland
had expected to remain
neutral as it had done in World
War I. After the first shock
and terror of the military ac-
tions, most Dutch citizens
were relieved that the Ger-
mans were behaving 'proper-
ly.' The majority of the Dutch
people did not question the
right of the Germans to impose
their rules. Anti-Semitism in-
creased and Jews began to
organize groups to defend
their property. On February
22, 1941 four hundred Jewish
men and boys were grabbed
off the streets and from their
homes, beaten and taken
away. Thousands of Dutch
people joined in a two-day
strike in protest of this action.
It was the most influential act
of (non-Jewish) resistance dur-
ing the war. Unfortunately it
was short-lived, the Germans
retaliated with force. By April,
30,000 Dutch men and boys
had signed up for the Waffen
SS (The so-called 'Storm-
troopers'), another 15,000
volunteered for military aux-
iliary organizations and police
groups. Jews were gradually
segregated into 'Jews Only'
areas, both to live and work.
Thousands were arrested and
sent to labor camps. Where to
The story of the Frank fami-
ly as they hid in the "Secret
Annex" with Mr. and Mrs. van
Daan (whom I shall always pic-
ture as Lou Jacobi and Shelly
Winters), their son Peter, and
the others, is well documented.
But the movie and book was
not Hollywood fiction. Anne's

diary told a story that cannot
be forgotten. She wrote,
"Believe me, if you have been
shut up for a year and a half, it
can get too much for you some
days. In spite of all justice and
thankfulness, you can't crush
your feelings. Cycling, danc-
ing, whistling, looking out into
the world, feeling young, to
know that I'm free ... that's
what I long for; still I mustn't
show it, because I sometimes
think if all eight of us began to
pity ourselves, or went about
with discontented faces, where
would it lead us?" (Diary,
On August 4, 1944, the Ger-
man police raided the "Secret
Annex." Everyone was ar-
rested. A list of deportees on
the last train from Holland to
Auschwitz contains the names
of the Frank family. Mrs.
Edith Frank-Hollander was
killed by the hardships of
Auschwitz, Mr. van Daan died
in the gas chamber. Peter van
Daan was taken by the SS
when the concentration camp
was abandoned because of the
approach of the Russians. He
succumbed in Mauthausen.
Mr. Dussel perished in the
Neuengamme concentration
camp. At the end of October,
1944, Anne and her sister
Margot were transported back
to Bergen-Belsen. Both of
them contracted typhus. They
died in March. Mrs. van Daan
also died in Bergen-Belsen. Ot-
to Frank, the lone survivor of
this little group, was liberated
from Auschwitz by the
After the publication of her
diaries, in 1947, Anne became
the symbol of a generation. A
teenage spokesperson for over
a million children who could
not speak for themselves,
children who never had a
chance to whistle .. children
who did not grow up, fall in
love, have babies of their own.
Today they would be grand-
parents. We, who have been
fortunate enough to have lived
in freedom, have a special
obligation. During this
Chanukah season, we must
teach our own children and
grandchildren the story of
Anne Frank and her one and a
half million contemporaries.
They cannot be replaced ...
They must not be forgotten. It
could have been different ...
but... it wasn't. It could have
happened anywhere!!!

following the same reasoning

even though he did not make
the payments until the follow-
ing years. Such a scenario is
possible but should not be
undertaken without advice of
competent tax counsel.
It should be noted that banks
charge a fee for issuance of a
letter of credit, but the value
of the tax savings would, in
most cases, far exceed the cost
of the letter of credit.
By planned giving, an in-
dividual can get the most out
of his contributions, both for
himself personally and for the
charity involved. With the cur-
rent changes in the tax laws,
anyone contemplating a gift in
future years to a charitable
organization should consider
the possibility of structuring
his or her future years' gifts to
obtain the deduction in 1986.
