Jewish Family Service Provides Area Drug Plan
"I denied for years
that I had a problem
with drugs and alcohol
(chemical dependency)
and a lot of that denial
had to do with being
Jewish. I told myself
that Jews did not
become addicted, and
that I, as a Jew, was
simply too smart for
that. I was sure I could
control it." (Carol is a
23-year-old recovering
cross-drug addict.)

Isaac Trainin, recently
retired Director of New
York Federation's Com-
mission on Synagogue
Relations, drug abuse
and alcoholism affects
Jews of all economic
levels as well as all levels
of observance, including
the Hassidim. Many
Jewish alcoholics and
drug abusers, especially
those from more obser-
vant backgrounds, ex-
press tremendous guilt
and remorse that, in
spite of their
Jewishness, they have
become addicted.
Drug dependency and
alcoholism are illnesses,
not moral deficiencies,
and can be treated suc-
cessfully. "A chemically
dependent person can be
recovering, but they will
never be reformed.' A
chemically dependent
person can never
recover to the point
where they can touch
alcohol or drugs again.

NEW YORK A prominent jurist, Alan Dershowitz,
said that the latest instance of what he called "the Chris-
tianization of America" should be challenged. "There
ought to be something done," he said, aboutthe view ex-
pressed by a judge in Chicago that "Anerica's origins are
Christian" and that the "founding fathers intended and
achieved full religious freedom for all within the context of
a Christian nation in the First Amendment as it was
adopted, rather than as we have rewritten it."

NJCRAC Views Sakharov Release From
Exile as Change in Style, Not Substance
Calling the release from in-
ternal exile of Soviet dissident
Andrei Sakharov and his wife,
Yelena Bonner, a "heartening
gesture," Michael A. Pelavin,
chairman of the National
Jewish Community Advisory
Council, said the development
is "one of a series by the
Soviet Union that represents a
change in style in the handling
of human rights, which
reflects its embarassment over
the exposure of their repres-
sion of Sakharov and others,
including thousands of Soviet
Jews who are refused the right
to emigrate."
"Sakharov, who is not
Jewish, has been a hero to
Soviet Jews for his forceful ad-
vocacy of their right to
emigrate and practice their
religion and culture," Pelavin
noted. "In human terms, the
couples' return to Moscow,
after their many years of cruel
isolation in the closed city of
Gorky, is something we all
welcome. But it is somewhat
ironic that the Soviet govern-
ment should win praise for
releasing them from an inter-
nal exile to which they had
been unjustly sentenced in the
first place.
"The Sakharovs' return to
Moscow, where they will again
be able to see friends and col-
leagues, is further evidence of
the Soviet government's
change in style. But they have
yet to implement changes in
substance, for the doors to
Soviet Jewish emigration re-
main closed and their condi-
tions oppressive."

And in a sense, it is.

The need to survive cultural-

Special Friend
Alvin Grot*
One of Greater Fort Lauderdale's leading business en-
trepreneurs and philanthropists, Alvin S. Gross, passed
away last week and the Federation and the community
have suffered a deep loss.
Both Alvin and his wife, Evelyn, have been stalwarts in
the Federation/UJA campaign since its inception. A past
president and general campaign chairman, he had received
numerous awards including Federation "Man of the Year,"
"Outstanding Campaign Leadership," and "South Florida
Regional Volunteer Service."
His heartfelt generosity and tireless work on behalf of his
brethren translated into an outpouring of funds for both
the Jewish community's major philanthropy, the Founda-
tion of Jewish Philanthropies, as well as Federation agen-
cies on which he served with distinction including the
Samuel and Helene Soref Jewish Community Center in
Alvin devoted countless hours to both civic and philan-
thropic endeavors as a past officer and director of Temple
Emanu-El in Fort Lauderdale, the American Jewish Com-
mittee and B'nai B'rith.
His entrepreneurial expertise was instrumental in the
success of his business as president, Mercury Service, Inc.,
a linen supply service company throughout the area.
"There will be a deep void and an emptiness in our North
Broward County community without the sage advise and
guidance of our dear friend, Alvin," said Joel Reinstein, im-
mediate past president of the Federation. "We here at
Federation have looked to Alvin for his expertise and his
leadership ability in these many years," said Brian J.
Sherr, Federation president, "and offer our condolences to
his wife, Evelyn, and their family, and leave her with these
words, Alvin will always remain in the hearts of our Jewish
brethren who have benefited from his benevolent role in
Federation/United Jewish Appeal."

Dear Friends,
This will be your last chance to purchase tickets for our Benefit

whelming. Over 85 percent of the 4,000 seat theatre has been

that evening when we announce that the sum of approximately
$60,000 has been raised in one show. For that one special night,
the location of your seat will not be as important as the raising of

The Bottom Line
Continued from Page 3
cent mortgages, with no col-
lateral required.
The bottom line? This new
housing venture will cost the
Jewish Agency some $20
million a year for the next
three years. At an average of
$40,000 an apartment, we'll be
helping 1,500 families. It's a
reasonable investment.
What about Project
Renewal? Of the 56 Israeli
neighborhoods twinned with
American cities, 15 will be self-
directed and independent by
December. And that's not all.
"Second chance" education
courses have been completed
by 16,000 people including
5,000 women in tehila literacy
classes. Some 15,000 children
have participated in Head
Start-type enrichment
We have proved that the
idea of "twinning" Israeli
neighborhoods to American
cities brings people on both
sides closer together. We have
proved that it is possible to in-
spire Israelis in deteriorating
neighborhoods to take a more
aggressive role in the manage-
ment of their own com-
munities. But, of course, the
bottom line is that 41 of those
neighborhoods still need our
What about our rural settle-
ment program? In the last two
years, Israeli farmers have
been haixl hit, first by the
government freezing of the
shekel to curb inflation, and se-
cond by risking interest rates
which boosted the farmers'
debts beyond their ability to
repay. Finally, Spain's en-
trance into the common
market has meant increased
competition for Israeli
agricultural products.
The immediate need is to
stabilize the situation. That is
being done by the Jewish
Agency in cooperation with
the Israeli government. Over a
two-year period, the Jewish
Agency will use $50 million to
freeze the interest on this
debt, to convert loans from
short to long-term, and to
strengthen and guide the
viable farms. Where debts ex-
ceed 80 percent of farm's pro-
duction capacity, farmers will
be eased out of farming to seek
other employment.
The bottom line: the 1986/87
budget for rural settlement is
$72.3 million. That includes
$25 million this year for special
assistance to moshavim with
overwhelming debts, almost
$2 million for research and
development, $1.8 million for
two new nonagricultural set-
tlements, and $1 million for
vocational training.
Now what about youth
aliyah? Eighty percent of
Israel's Ethiopian students,
ages 11 to 17, are in youth
aliyah residential schools
about 2,500 in all. Through no
fault of their own, these are
children with problems. About
half are mourning for parents
who are dead or missing. Most
of the children still suffer from
lingering medical difficulties,
cultural conflicts and an identi-
ty crisis. They are black and
religious, living in a white and
largely secular society. They
need help, remedial work,
special preparatory classes.
But Ethiopians are only a
small fraction of youth aliyah's
total student population. At
present, some 85 percent come
from disadvantaged Israeli
families and only 15 percent
are new immigrants or the
children of immigrants. The
bottom line: the 1986/87
budget calls for $52 million.
Lastly, we have the Joint
Distribution Committee in
Israel and around the world.
It's hard to maintain a
businesslike presentation
about JDC. The program it
sponsors evokes too much
emotion. JDC is now working
with ORT, the army, and other
agencies to deal with some
25,000 young people who have
completed their army duty,
but who are neither employed
nor enrolled in programs of
further study. What would
happen if nobody makes an ef-
fort to assist these young peo-
ple? Social dynamite is as
dangerous in Israel as it is
here. But in Israel, because of
its small size, because of its
values, every individual is con-
sidered precious. No effort can
be spared to see that the
talents of Israel's young adults
aren't wasted.
And in 33 countries outside
of Israel, the JDC maintains
contact with the Jewish com-
munity. In Argentina and
Morocco, in Hungary,
Yugoslavia and Poland, the
JDC assists Jews. Many are
Holocaust survivors. For
many, the help is literally self-
sustaining. And for sustaining
life, there is no monetary bot-
tom line. For Jews, sustaining
life is the bottom line and this
is what the entire campaign is
all about!

Memories From '67 to '87
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale rings in
5741 as Federation president
Milton Keiner wishes the com-
munity L'Shana Tova.
Federation celebrates its
Bar Mitzvah campaign year as
Senator Henry M. Jackson
comes to South Florida to
speak at the Federation's cam-
paign kickoff meeting.
Campaign chair Victor
Gruman urges the community
to "stretch their gift" for the
80-81 campaign year to reach
the set goal of $3,500,000. "I
want the Fort Lauderdale
community to be Number One
in percentage increase from
the '80 campaign among com-
munities raising more than
$2,000,000 annually for UJA,"
Gruman stated.
For the first time in Federa-
tion history, over $1 million
was pledged on a single night
the Initial Gifts event.
And where does your money
go to the Jewish Community
Center for one, which
celebrated its fifth anniver-
sary. Also to the North
Broward Midrasha which at-
tracted over 400 at its lecture.
The Federation Chaplaincy
Commission also receives
allocations and this year, the
volunteer Rabbis have ac-
cepted hospital visitation
assignments, under the direc-
tion of Rabbi Albert Schwartz.
As 1981 approached, the
campaign was way ahead of
last years' pace. The
Woodlands men pledged over
$500,000 at their meeting
while the Foundations of
Jewish Philanthropies receives
a half million contribution.
A number of firsts for the
community Woodmont held
its first UJA event while
Federation opened another
satellite office, this one on the
Gait Ocean Mile.
Super Sunday was a big suc-
cess this year as callers record-
ed a total of $75,000 and a
number of new contributors at
the all-day phon-a-thbn.
Unfortunately as the
Federation/UJA campaign
was shining brightly, an inci-
dent in the community tried to
darken the spirit. Anti-
Semitism reared its ugly head
as the walls of Temple Beth
Am were defaced by vandals.
There was also a KKK
crossburning in Davie, thus
the need for a United Jewish
community seemed greater
than ever.
Highlighting the year was a
tribute dinner to Leo Good-
man, long time friend of the
Federation. Also over 500
North Broward residents
walked over three miles and
raised in excess of $11,000 for
the '81 campaign.
As the summer approached
the campaign reached the
$3,750,000 mark the highest
total ever. What a year.
Jewish High School Wets
Appetite for Knowledge
A scholar is someone who is
either a specialist in his field or
an exceptional student. Both
of these types of scholars are
present at the Scholars' Lun-
cheon held monthly at the
Jewish High School.
"The idea is twofold", says
Stephanie King, Chairman of
the Social Studies Department
who originated the project, "to
expose students to leaders in a
variety of fields and activities
and to give them contact with
people in more social settings,
stimulating intellectual
Each month 10 students are
invited to break bread with a
specialist in some field, fields
as varied as the interests of
the students. Guests this year
have included Michael Hettich,
on Poetry; Stephen Mander, a
prominent immigration at-
torney, Barbara Billie, a
Seminole Indian speaking on
the history of her tribe. Denis

UJA in 1971 after serving as a
consultant to the organization
for several years. In his first
assignment, as National
Young Leadership director, he
was instrumental in develop-
ing a new generation of Jewish
leadership in communities
throughout the country.
Howard lived in Israel for
several years, as a member of
a kibbutz, later in Jerusalem as
an advisor to the Ministry of
Health. A gifted writer, his
short stories, poetry and ar-
ticles have appeared in leading

Tipping'8 engraving of the
southern end of Masada. The
figures stand near Roman
camp H; Roman camp G is
drawn above them.
Only two women and five
children lived to recount the
story. It happened 1,917 years
ago, in the year 70 CE. A Jew
by the name of Eleazar Ben
Yair led a band of 960 men,
women, and children to the
mountain stronghold of
Masada to escape the Roman
legions. For more than two
years, this small group held
out against the might of the
world's most powerful armies.
The country was suffering
under the occupation of the
Romans who had overthrown
the Jewish Maccabean
kingdom in the middle of the
previous century. In the year
66 CE the Jewish revolt flared
into a full-scale war. For four
years, Rome brought in legion
after legion of reinforcements
to suppress the Jewish
resistance. When Titus, son of
the Roman Emperor, finally
conquered Jerusalem, sacked
the city, and destroyed the
Temple the group of Jewish
zealots followed Ben Yair to
Masada. Roman generals
established camps that could
last forever, encircling the
base of the mountain. They
constructed battering rams
and seige towers and with con-
siderable fire power finally
subdued the Jews. Rather than
become slaves to the con-
querors, the defenders, these
brave 960 men, women and
children ended their lives at
their own hands. The Romans
reached the heights the next
morning ... they were met
with silence. The story of their
courage and resolution, as re-
counted by the 1st Century
historian Josephus Flavius,
survives over the centuries.
Today, in Israel, army troops
climb to the top of this ar-
cheological wonder to vow that
"Masada Shall Not Fall
Many times over the course
of Jewish history we have fac-
ed unexpected difficulties,
some of enormous proportions
... some of minor inconve-
nience. The Jewish people
have survived the worst
mankind has had to offer.
From the darkest centuries of
the crusades to the horrors of
the Holocaust, many millions
have been massacred. We have
also established a free and
democratic national homeland
and given the world a
disproportionate share of
Nobel Prize winners. Since the
ancient exodus from Egypt to
the modern exodus from
Ethiopia, every situation has
been confronted and address-
ed. The year 1987 will be one
in which American Jews shall
face new problems both in
world economy and the tax
reforms of Ronald Reagan.
Although not to be compared
.to the taxes of ancient Rome,
the new tax laws can be looked
upon as another challenge to
this Jewish community. It has
been claimed that the tax
reform bill will be devastating
to "charities." An article in
'The New York Times' on Jan.
1 indicated that, "under the
new law, nonprofit organiza-
tions will lose at least $11
billion in charitable contribu-
tions annually." That may well
be ... but Federation/UJA is
not a charity. A commitment
to Federation is a commitment
to the Jewish people.
Has the world changed so '
much since the days of Titus?
In its 38 years of existence, the
State of Israel has faced the
constant hostility of the Arab
world and has been forced to
fight five full-scale wars in
defense of its very right to
Soviet Jewish emigration
has fallen to the lowest level
since emigration efforts began
in the early '70s. In addition to
the 'normal' abuse suffered by
Soviet Jewry, the formation of
an Anti-Zionist committee has
created an unprecedented
level of anti-Zionist and anti-
Semitic propaganda. The
restrictions on Jews are
relentless ...
No rabbinical seminaries
are permitted
Most synagogues have
been closed; those open lack
Jewish schools are
Teaching Hebrew is illegal
Jews are constantly de-
tained; charged with
Regular contact with Jews
abroad is forbidden
Possible imprisonment or
arrest for refuseniks and/or
their relatives.
Despite the tremendous suc-
cess of Operation Moses, ap-
Sroximately 2,000 Ethiopian
ews perished from disease
and hunger before they could
be rescued. It is estimated that
8-10,000 more Jews are still
trapped in the Gundar region
of Ethiopia. The Marxist
government of Colonel
Mengistu has refused to allow
any further emigration, even
to allow parents to reunite
with children already in Israel.
Jews in Ethiopia continue to
suffer from the hostility of the
populace and the authorities,
as well as the famine, drought,
and civil disruption afflicting
the entire country.
The 6,000 Jews remaining in
Syria are the only group in
Syria that is totally forbidden
to emigrate. With minor ex-
ceptions President Assad has
refused to implement the pro-
mise he made to President
Carter in 1977 to permit
Jewish emigration. Those few
who are allowed to travel out-
side the country must post a
bond worth approximately
$6,000 and leave close family
members behind to guarantee
their return.

Commitment to Excellence
Federation/UJA Way $3.6 Million Raised Toward '87 Goal
"Halfway and counting ..."
What better way to begin 1987
than to announce that a record
$3.6 plus million has been rais-
ed to date by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale's 1987 United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
In a special interview with
the Floridian, Sheldon S.
Polish, general chairman,
praised the tireless work of
hundreds of team volunteers
and the heartfelt generosity of
tens of thousands of con-
tributors who have helped to
achieve this record count
toward the 1987 goal of $7.2
million to aid in the social
welfare and humanitarian pro-
Srams in North Broward
ounty, in Israel and other
lands around the world.
Polish said, "Through your
profound giving and staunch
determination to reach our
life-giving totals, we have ac-
complished a first for our
young community. And it is in-
deed fitting to have fulfilled
our responsibility as Jews at
this the beginning of our 20th
Anniversary Year. For it is
some 20 years ago that a hand-
ful of dedicated and committed
men and women set forth to
bring about a central organiza-
tion within the Greater Fort
Lauderdale community, which
today stands at the forefront
of providing urgently needed
funds for all of our brethren in
In extolling the praise,
Polish named his team of more
than 40 campaign cabinet
leaders whose expertise and
guidance in major areas and
divisions accounted for this
magnificent success.
"This, however, does not
mean that the task is over," he
said, "or our job is done."
"This is the furthest thing
from the truth and now the
truly hard work begins. It will
take a super effort to solicit
and raise the remaining three

reach out to the larger

As a result of the in-
creased Jewish Com-

there are currently five
synagogues in Broward
County that house AA,
NA and Al-Anon
meetings and three that
house JACS meetings.
Prior to this awareness,
nearly all AA and NA
meetings were held in
churches and many Jews
were uncomfortable in
that setting.
The Jewish communi-
ty has begun to put aside
the comforting myths
that Jews are not af-
fected by the problem of
chemical dependency.

tendency to believe that
the Jewish community
has come a long way in

Yes, buckwheat is botanically related to rhubarb. Buckwheat, contrary
to popular belief, is a fruit, not a grain.
Kasha, the roasted buckwheat kernel, is the nutritious, delicious fruit of
the buckwheat plant.
Kasha, the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel is rich in potassium,
phosphorous, fiber and vitamin B, and has NO CHOLESTEROL. Thus,
it is an economical food high in balanced protein and it's delicious, too!

From the
Rabbi's Study
A service of the North
Broward Board of Rabbis,
president Rabbi Elliot L. Skid-
dell, Ramat Shalom,

Member. Chaplaincy Corps
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
There is a charming tale told
of the Kotzker rebbe, who once
asked his followers: "Where is
God to be found?" After their
initial shock at the seemingly
strange question, his disciples
gave various answers. Finally,
the Rebbe himself gave his
answer: "God is to be found
(wherever man lets Him in."
This profound teaching gives
us an insight as to how man is
responsible for the amount of
podness and Godliness in the
or Id. Man is an active part-
er in bringing about the bet-
r world of tomorrow; he is
's partner in setting the
orld aright.
We live in a world of man-
evils, and the list is a
ong one. When nations wage
ar or spend billions on ar-
ents while millions starve,
e close the door on God.
iWhen freedom is denied to so
/many, when tyranny and
{enslavement prevail in so
nuch of the world, when
luman beings are falsely im-
>risoned and tortured, when
acism denies multitudes their
lignity and civil rights, we
lave pushed God out of the
We also sense, but are
desensitized to the fact that
there is enough food, clothing
and potential shelter available
for all men and nations if we
but had the will and deter-
mination to organize distribu-
tion so that basic necessities
are provided to all peoples
everywhere. This country also
can produce enough food to
feed the entire world. Yet, our
efforts as they relate to need
are woefully inadequate. The
prophet Isaiah said it so well
27 centuries ago. Speaking of
the importance of righteous
living versus formal ritual, we
read this passage from Isaiah
on Yom Kjppur:
Is not this the fast I have
To loose the fetters of
To undo the bonds of the yoke,
and to let the oppressed go
and that you break every yoke?
Is it not to deal your bread to
the hungry,
and that you bring the
homeless to your house;
When you see the naked that
you cover him,
and that you hide not yourself
from your fellow man.'
During World War II
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
said we were fighting to
establish four freedoms in the
world. Among them were
freedom from fear and
freedom from want. When we
work to establish these
>ms everywhere we br-
God into the world.
How does the Kotzker
rebbe's statement affect our
personal lives? How do we
allow God to enter our daily

lives when we strive to be true
to our ideals,
2. We bring goodness into

ing kindness, and they list

share our bread, our skills, our
The Midrash on Psalms has a
relevant comment. Our sages
ask: "Why is the word 'mak-
kom' (place) used as one of the
many names for God?" Their
answer: Because in whatever
place righteous men stand,
there God is with them, as it is
written, "In every place where
I cause My name to be men-
tioned, I will come unto you
and bless you." (Exodus 20:21)

Encourages Pen Pals
The International Year of
Jewish Youth was proclaimed
by the Jewish Congress at
their last meeting, and it was
decided to encourage younger
people to correspond with
other younger people around
the world, in Israel, Canada,
and the United States.
Thousands of addresses are
available for people interested
in writing and although all age
groups are served, young peo-
ple and people who work with
young people, under the age of
35, are being stressed. An
autobiographical letter is re-
quired and will be matched to
from two to eight young peo-
ple worldwide. For informa-

ty Medical Center's Nursing Division has set up a foreign
nurses recruitment program. Among the American nurses
is Phyllis Eigner, formerly of Miami. "I was nursing at
Jackson Memorial Hospital when I saw the advertisement
asking for nurses in Hadassah. My grandmother, Mrs.
Dorothy Barnett of Fort Lauderdale is a life member of
Hadassah. I had been in Israel when I was 16 on a tour with
USY and I know quite a lot of Hebrew." Phyllis lives in an
apartment in Jerusalem with other foreign nursing
students working in Hadassah.

Few surgical procedures are
more critical to life itself than open
heart surgery. And, clearly, there are
few procedures where the experience
of the physician is more critical, more
So if you must have open heart
surgery, it should be of great comfort
to know that, led by Dr. James Jude,
the surgeons at The North Ridge
Heart Institute perform more open
heart procedures than any other hos-
pital in South Florida.
In fact, over 4,000 people have
come to us for open heart surgery in
the last 10 years. For the experience
of our physicians. And the excellence
of our care.
Because along with our physi-
cians, Cardiovascular Clinical Nurse
Specialists give individual attention
and support to you and your family
throughout your hospital stay.
And after surgery, a comprehen-
sive rehabilitation program helps you
return to your normal life as quickly
as possible.
But we'd rather help you avoid
open heart surgery entirely. So we
offer one of the most advanced diag-
nostic testing and alternative treat-
ments available. Backed by the exper-
tise of Dr. Ali Ghahramani, who has

performed more than 10,000 cardiac
catheterizations and over 600 balloon

Because your health can only be as
sound as your heart.
