'One Community One Covenant' Theme of
UJA Leadership Gifts Citywide Event Feb. 7
Fort Lauderdale, Florida Friday, January 30, 1987

Price ;*"> Cents
"One Community One
Covenant" is the pledge of
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
leaders who will rally forth
to raise an unprecedented
record amount of dollars at
North Broward County's
first Citywide Dinner-
Dance, Saturday evening,
Feb. 7, at 6:30 p.m., in the
Gold Coast's Marriott Har-
bour Beach Resort.
As of press time, the
FLORIDIAN has learned
that more than 200 men and
women have already
responded to the special in-
vitation to attend the event.
A goal 0f 4oo has been set
by campaign leadership
which are confident that the
gala function will exceed
even those expectations.
The event, of special
significance to the Greater
Fort Lauderdale Jewish
community, is open to
couples attending where
one family member makes a
minimum gift of $1,800 to
the 1987 Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
campaign.
Coming to South Florida
on this special occasion is
the noted news correspon-
dent Bernard Kalb, the
recently resigned assistant
Secretary of State for
Public Affairs, who will give
a special insight into the
Iran-Contra scandal. Kalb is
currently on a State to State
circuit for the National
United Jewish Appeal
where he has addressed
thousands of concerned peo-
ple in the quest to raise
urgently needed funds to
provide vital social welfare
and humanitarian programs
here in North Broward
County, in Israel and in 33
lands around the world.

County have to understand

BONN The federal pro-
secutor's office in Lud-
wigshaven reported that
proceedings are pending
'.against some 1,200
suspected Nazi war
criminals but few if anv are
expected to be brought to
trial because of then* ad-
vanced age and the reluc-
tance of many witnesses to
testify. The suspects are
mainly former guards at
Nazi concentration camps
who were involved in the
mass killings of Jews and
others. Most of them range
in age from 75 to 80 and the
average age of witnesses is
73.
UNITED NATIONS -
The Israel Mission to the
United Nations has launch-
ed a campaign to expose the
multi-billion dollar oil trade
between Arab countries,
Iran and South Africa in
response to the constant
allegations by Arab coun-
tries in the UN that Israel is
a major trading partner of
South Africa. In the coming
weeks, the Israel Mission
will release information to
the UN which indicates that
the Arab countries and Iran
sold some $7.7 billion worth
of oil to South Africa bet-
ween 1980 and 1986 and
Iran and Iraq each bartered
about $1 billion of oil in ex-
change for heavy artillery.
Zoya Leybin, concert
violinist with the San Fran-
cisco Symphony and former
Soviet Refusenik will ad-
dress and perform for the
attendees of the Women's
Division's annual communi-
ty event in support of the
1987 Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
campaign, on Monday, Feb.
9 at the elegant Chateau de
Ville Restaurant,
Lighthouse Point.
The bruncheon theme,
'Kol Ishah,' or 'Woman's
Voice,' and its three co-
chairs Susan Canarick, Roi-
ly Weinberg and Esther
Wolfer are asking each
woman in North Broward to
speak up and be counted
and make a minimum com-
mitment of $365 in her own
Zoya Leybin
name to the 1987 Women's
Division campaign of the
Federation.
"What we're really asking
is for a dollar a day for UJA
or $865," Canarick stated.
"It is most important to
note that this commitment
is payable over the course of
an entire year."
According to Weinberg,
the bruncheon program will
be interesting as well as
entertaining.
"Zoya will be performing
for us as well as telling us
the story of how she raised
her voice in protest of the
Soviet Union.
"We would like to have as
many women at the $365
level or higher attend the
bruncheon, Wolfer stated.
"It's equally as important to
make the commitment as it
is to come and show your
support for your Jewish
brethren."

Committee are Cathy Bier-
man, Rhea Edelstein, San-
dra Friedland, Selma

Large Turnout Expected for Woodmont
Dinner-Dance, Sunday, Feb. 1
"It appears that we will have
the largest turnout ever at our
gala Federation/UJA dinner-
dance this Sunday evening,"
stated Dr. Lawrence Levine,
dinner chairman.
The annual United Jewish
Appeal function this year will
feature Howard Stone as the
guest speaker. Mr. Stone is
formerly the director of the
Overseas Department of Na-
tional UJA and has traveled
extensively throughout
Europe in his position of bring-
ing needed help to Jews
reaching out for assistance.
Mr. Stone, who lived in Israel
for a number of years, brings
to the Woodmont audience his
keen insight into the Mid-East
situation and Israel's problems
in confronting Arab hostility,
economy and the outstanding
achievements of the tiny coun-
try in less than 40 years.
Woodmont chairmen Lou
Colker and Moe Wittenberg
have urged all residents to join
in the on-going UJA campaign
to raise funds to help the
Jewish Federation support the
many agencies that provide
humanitarian services in
North Broward County, Israel
and throughout the world.
There are still some reserva-
tions available for the Feb. 1
dinner which begins at 7 p.m.
with cocktails and dancing.
22 'Early Bird' Phonathons Raise $3.2 Million
150 Communities to Dial for
Super Sunday '87 Dollars
NEW YORK, N.Y. Some
150 U.S. communities will par-
ticipate in the United Jewish
Appeal's seventh annual
telephone marathon, Super
Sunday 1987, according to
Michael M. Adler of Miami,
UJA Super Sunday National
Chairman.
Here in South Florida, the
five Jewish Federations in
Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach Counties will hold a
regional "Super Sunday"
Phon-A-Thon, Sunday, March
22, to help raise the urgently
needed funds. The Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale has set the location
at the Tamarac Jewish Center,
9101 NW 57th St., Tamarac,
where an expected S00 plus
volunteers wUl make the life-
sustaining calls.
The one-day program, in
which thousands of volunteers
will make hundreds of
thousands of phone calls to
American Jewish households
across the nation, is the single
largest national fund-raising
event on the UJA calendar
involving more volunteers,
reaching more givers and rais-
ing more money than any
other.
The Super Sunday "season"
runs from November through
May. Most participating com-
munities have chosen a
phonathon date between
December and March, depen-
ding on local campaign calen-
dars; more than half will make
their calls on February 1,
1987, which UJA has dubbed
"National Super Sunday."

Florida is unique because the

day, nearly 40,000 volunteers
in 161 U.S. communities
smashed all previous records
by raising almost $40.7
million," said Adler, a UJA
National Vice Chairman. "This
year, we hope to reach more
people and raise more money
in a single day than ever
before a projected $43
million."
Adler noted that, beginning
with Wilkes-Barre, Pa., last
November, 22 "early bird"
communities have already held
their Super Sundays, raising
more than $3.2 million
almost half this figure achiev-
ed by Boston. "I'd like to
thank these early birds, their
givers and volunteers," he
said, "for establishing such a
fast pace so early and pro-
viding the momentum that will
help us reach our goal.
"But we know," he aded,
"that when the people we call
on Super Sunday no matter
when it's scheduled unders-
tand that by their increased
pledges to their UJA/Federa-
tion campaigns they will be
helping to meet Jewish needs
in Israel, around the world and
in their own communities,
they'll respond generously,
and Super Sunday will once
again surpass its goal and
make fund-raising history. Our
Super Sunday slogan says it
all: '.. When Your Phone
Line Becomes a Lifeline.' "

Federation Remits
$4 Million Plus to UJA
Special praise was in order
when Martin F. Stein, national
chairman of the United Jewish
Appeal congratulated the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale/UJA for pro-
viding a record $4,080 million
to the 1986 United Jewish
Appeal.
Stein indicated that the UJA
has collected $376.1 million for
the calendar year 1986, an all-
time record for regular cash
collections for the same year.
In a recent report, the
results showed that the
Federation dollar amount
ranked 21st among the more
than 200 Federations in the
United States. The statement
read that the Fort Lauderdale
Federation has exceeded their
1986 suggested goal and is in-
cluded in the Honor Roll of
Federations.
This is particularly notewor-
thy said Brian J. Sherr,
Federation president, who told
the FLORIDIAN that the im-
pressive figures showed the
heartfelt concern of all North
Broward County residents.
He emphasized, "This
reflects on the outstanding
work of the corps of volunteers
who under the guidance and
leadership of '86 general chair-
man John Streng achieved a
remarkable $6.1 million to aid
in the social welfare, relief and
humanitarian programs here
at home, in Israel and around
the world."
Also with the excellerated
efforts achieved by '87 general
chairman Sheldon S. Polish,
we can expect an even greater
appropriation to UJA for the
life-giving, life-saving work of
the UJA in Israel and around
the world."
Stein reiterated that this
year, UJA plans to continue
the momentum generated in
1986 by maintaining a high
level of cash collection intensi-
ty and accelerating of efforts.
Gladys Daren, Federation
assistant treasurer, was chair
of the Treasurer Committee
who was at the helm of the '86
Cash Collection's drive.

$4.5 Million and Counting For '87 Federation/UJA
In a quest to achieve the
largest total of gifts from the
North Broward County Jewish
community, leaders of the
Jewish Federation/United
Jewish Appeal have announc-
ed a major citywide outreach
to achieve the '87 campaign
goal.
At a campaign cabinet
meeting, general chairman
Sheldon S. Polish announced
that to date the drive has
reached a record $4.5 million
from the area's committed
residents, and that in order to
accomplish the remaining
dollars, a concerted effort to
commit new prospects and
zero givers has been planned.
Team leaders from the more
than 22 communities
throughout Greater Fort
Lauderdale are currently in
the organizational stages, con-
centrating on procuring 100
percent participation. Polish
said that under the chair of
Gladys Daren, an extraor-
dinary "Super Sunday" phon-
a-thon event on March 22 will
touch thousands of men,
women and young adults, in a
mammoth volunteer undertak-
ing which will raise the con-
sciousness and commitment of
uninvolved residents.
"Daren's team of workers
have been notified of the ex-
cellerated program to bring
these prospects into the fold,
and that this is 'not business as
usual,' since the costs of doing
business at Federation agen-
cies and beneficiaries have
greatly escalated," said Polish.
"We need the more than
150,000 plus living in our
metropolis to become an active
force in Federation/UJA, since
this is their hometown and
they should be the ones to
shape and mold the social
welfare, educational and other
related programs. There is but
one way to make things hap-
pen and that is to be involved.
The Federation/UJA is the
central planning organization
of the Jewish community and
the umbrella covering more
than 50 social service and
humanitarian functions. Now
is the time to be a part of this
massive effort and the best
way and only way is the
Federation/UJA way."
Polish was particularly
pleased with the results
already accomplished and
praised the tireless cabinet
members. He also announced
that the campaign was runn-
ing 14 percent ahead of last
year January and this has been
achieved with 7,000 gifts com-
pared to 30,000 in 1986.
Help continue this en-
thusiastic support and join the
'87 Federation/UJA team.
Polish urges every FLORI-
DIAN reader to invite a friend,
neighbor or business associate
to come aboard! Call 748-8400

A Sense of Humor
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
We had arrived in Israel to serve as civilian volunteers in
the Israel Defense Forces. Not until the 14 of us had board-
ed the bus at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport did we know
our destination. Rumors spread that we were going to the
center of the country, not far from Tel Aviv. Then we heard
those words that will live in our souls for eternity. Camp
Mansura. What? Where?
The bus headed north toward Haifa. About 30 minutes
southeast of this port city, built on hills with a majestic
view of the Mediterranean, sits this military installation,
which serves as a maintenance facility for about 250 trucks
and other vehicles, including a number of tanks, a few of
which are vintage Russian. A steady rain was falling as our
drab green military bus pulled into the camp. It was cold,
and we were cold. We were taken to the dining hall, a
dilapidated structure that could have been brightened by
some plaster and a fresh coat of paint, and were fed. If the
dining hall was heated, we never discovered it. Five
volunteers, who had already been at the camp for a week,
greeted us with knowing smiles that gave cause for con-
cern. Next we trudged to our quarters, where small space
heaters provided a shadow of warmth.
Seven of us piled into one room of four bunk beds and
sought refuge. We later discovered that a poorly con-
structed bathroom, about 60 feet from our cabin, maintain-
ed a constant water level of two inches in equally unheated
surroundings. The information sheet had warned us to ex-
pect primitive conditions, but this was a little more than we
envisioned. Yet, the rains did stop, the sun came out, a
modicum of warmth burst forth, and we reluctantly ad-
justed to this new, adventurous life style.
Thus began our tour of duty as volunteers for Israel. The
program is heading into its fourth year, having been the
brainchild of General Aaron Davidi, a war hero, who during
the Six Day War led the assault on Sharm-el-Shaikh.
About 3,000 have to date participated in this unique
method of helping Israel, learning about the country and
having Israelis see a different side of Americans and other
nationalities.
We were assigned to a variety of tasks. Some painted,
others separated nuts and bolts, still others did odds-and-
ends jobs, and my group of six tried to build a fence around
the perimeter of the camp to replace barbed wire that had
likely been there from the time the British occupied this
camp. We worked under the direction of an Israeli soldier,
and to varying degrees got to know what he and other
young soldiers thought about life in Israel. Our total time
was not spent working, for we did take three side trips
around the country.
What brings one to Israel to work and to live in less than
ideal surroundings? Len, 47, an artist from Florida, con-
fessed that he was exploring the idea of aliyah, The pro-
gram filled his need for a work ethic while letting him see
the country. Irene, a young fiftyish psychologist from
Massachusetts, was searching for her Jewishness. A visit
to the Western Wall in Jerusalem helped her discover it.
Although his name sounds Israeli, Shmuel, 43, a computer
analyst from Berkeley, Calif., wanted to make a personal
contribution while having the opportunity to interact with
Israelis. A career development specialist with a New
Jersey bank, Lynn, 34, saw the program as a way to ex-
press her strong feelings for the Jewish state.
It was a unique and, retrospectively, wonderful ex-
perience. A special camaraderie developed among the
volunteers. We found many faults in the program, hopeful-
ly just part of its growing pains, but we joked about them.
A certain respect developed among us as we silently
acknowledged our commitment and "sacrifice." In our own
ways we were making our statements. The program is not
for everyone. A healthy amount of fortitude and ability to
laugh at circumstances are mandatory. At the very least,
realizing the temporal nature of this unusual adventure, we
concluded that without a sense of humor, this was not the
place to be. Fortunately, almost all had brought theirs.

Because of You There is Hope ...
Federation/UJA Provides the Spark
Because of you, the tens of thousands of
Jewish men, women and children throughout
the world will reap the benefits provided by
the beneficiaries and agencies supported by
the '87 Federation/UJA campaign. And your
heartfelt generosity provides more than a hot
meal in a kitchen in Paris, or a clean bed in a
Malban home. It also provides the religious
and spiritual needs of our Jewish brethren.
One of the more interesting items that
recently crossed my desk revealed how truly
wonderful your gift can be, when I read about
the more than 5,000 members of the Poland
Jewish community who recently found
themselves without a Chazan to celebrate the
High Holidays. And the response was indeed
gratifying when the American Joint Distribu-
tion Committee, a major beneficiary of the
Federation/UJA campaign, responded with
New York's Binyamin Glickman, who im-
mediately flew to Warsaw and Cracow,
where he lead services and blew the Shofar.
And in Bucharest, Romania, 78 elderly
Jewish residents found the conditions of the
home in which they lived becoming more and
more inhabitable. It soon became evident that
a new place would have to be found and the
current building demolished. And thanks to
the Federation/UJA supported Joint
Distribution Committee, a grant of $230,000
was provided for the new facility. The new
home houses the ambulatory elderly, offers a
better environment than the old one, in-
cluding new services and activities.
And so the story goes ... the reports from
JDC workers sorting and cataloging religious
objects.
the field are numerous, and the reports are
heartfelt, because we have helped to write
them, through our profound generosity. Take
this time to keep the programs going.
February can indeed ^e the turning point for
providing life-sustaining aid. Call Federa-
tion/UJA at 748-8400 and keep the spark
alive!

The Cardinal's Tightrope
Controversy dogged the recent visit to Israel by New
York's Cardinal John O'Connor. The Cardinal,
reciprocating a stop at his office last year by then-Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, had planned to meet Peres now
Foreign Minister Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
President Chaim Herzog in Jerusalem. But scheduled of-
ficial meetings were scrubbed after the Vatican reiterated
its prohibition against church representatives seeing
Israeli leaders in their offices.
Numerous reports pointed out that the Holy See does not
recognize Israel and that the Vatican long has asserted
that Jerusalem, with sites holy to Judaism, Christianity
and Islam, should be under international control. Commen-
ting on the cancellations, a church spokesman also raised
"the problem of the occupied territory and the Palestinian
problem."
But these explanations do not bear scrutiny. The Vatican
did not establish diplomatic relations with Israel from 1948
through 1967, before the latter gained control of the Old Ci-
ty audits shrines, before it took the West Bank (Judea and
Samaria), the Gaza Strip and Golan Heights from Jordan,
Egvpt and Syria, respectively, in a successful war of self-
defense. What stopped the Roman Catholic Church from
recognizing Israel then, from putting its embassy in the
new city of west Jerusalem or even Tel Aviv, and reserving
judgment on biblical Jerusalem are the same issues which
upset O'Conor's trip now.
First is the Vatican's problem with Jewish, as opposed to
Israeli, administration in the holy land. For most of its
2,000 years the church has seen itself as superseding
Judaism. The revival of a Jewish state in the 20th century
challenges that theology. Although positive steps have
been made in Catholic-Jewish relations in the past two
decades and the church now speaks of its Jewish roots, it
still seems uncomfortable with Jewish sovereignty.
Second, the Vatican seeks to maintain good relations
with Arab and other Moslem countries, many of which in-
clude significant Christian minorities. Unfortunately, like
some other Western states with the same goal, it has done
so at Israel's expense. Hence the background noise about
"the occupied territory and the Palestinian problem." As a
result, the Vatican which recognizes and deals with com-
munist regimes in Eastern Europe that oppress the church
and sometimes imprison or even murder its priests, which
attempts to mediate the Lebanese wars between Maronite
Catholics and their Moslem enemies insists it has a pro-
blem with Israel's irreproachable administration of
Jerusalem's holy places.
Eventually, Cardinal O'Connor met privately with Peres
and Herzog at their residences and salvaged some of his
original itinerary while following the church's diplomatic
guidelines.
Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, Rep. Edward Feighan (D
Ohio) prepared to reintroduce a resolution "expressing the
sense of the Congress that the Vatican should recognize
the State of Israel and should establish diplomatic relations
with that country." Feighan, a Catholic, got 35 co-sponsors
on the resolution in the 99th Congress, but the measure
died in the Foreign Affairs Committee. The 100th Con-
gress should pass it. .. and the Vatican should heed it.

Tricky Business
The Reagan Administration
is requesting that Israel
receive $3 billion in military
and economic assistance in
fiscal 1988, the same level
allocated in 1986 and 1987.
The recommendation was in-
cluded in President Reagan's
proposed new budget.
If Congress approves the
budget, Israel win once again
receive $1.2 billion in economic
and $1.8 billion in military aid.
Egypt will once again receive
the same level of assistance as
last year, $2.29 billion. The
budget also includes $71
million for Jordan and $131
million for Morocco. An addi-
tional $12.5 million has been
included for the use of private
American voluntary organiza-
tions on the West Bank and in
Gaza.
Secretary of State George
Shultz said that he would not
rule out using funds earmark-
ed by Congress for Israel,
Egypt, Greece, Turkey and
Pakistan for other purposes
during fiscal 1987, but added,
"Breaking earmarks is very
difficult and tricky. They
represent a very strong state-
ment of the Congress and, if
we do any, it will be after very
close consultation."
A Congressional source ex-
pressed doubt that Shultz
would actually resort to
"breaking" the earmarked
amounts. The source added
that Shultz's statement did not
represent a new State Depart-
ment position on aid.

Love Thy Neighbor
A good education is more
than just a stepping stone to
college or the job market.
It provides a sense of
responsibility toward other
people. The Jewish High
School of South Florida, realiz-
ing this, participates in a com-
munity service program allow-
ing students to practice the
golden rule. Students earn
credits in Judaic Studies by
giving 30 hours of community
service during the school year.
Students giving 50 hours or
more of service are entitled to
membership in the Service
Honors Society of the school.
Last year three students
achieved this honor ^ Jenny
Ivcher, Jenny Guindi and
Jackie Abadi each contributed
over 100 hours doing volunteer
work at the school.
Students have collected food
for the "Feed Miami" pro-
gram; have helped teachers
with projects ana one Sunday
a few weeks ago, 15 students,
led by the Student Council and
their President, Jennifer
Cristal, gave up their after-
noon to run booths for the
Michael Ann Russell Jewish
Community Center Chanukah
Happening.
Jewish High School students
gave up their first day of
winter break to fill in for
workers and volunteers who
wished to spend Christmas
with their families but would
have had to work that day.
The students view communi-
ty service as part of the school
curriculum and the school
hopes this valuable experience
will teach them the most im-
portant lesson of all LOVE
THY NEIGHBOR.
Leat Apel, a senior, has been
organizing students to visit
children in hospitals. Students
of the school are Hebrew and
Jewish studies instructors at
various congregations and
community agencies in the
neighborhod of the school. One
such student Richard Nez-
vadovitz, has made important
contributions as an instructor

Page 6 The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale/Friday, January 30, 1987
1987 is the Year for Philanthropic Funds
Editor Note: This article
deals with the importance of
establishing a Philanthropic
Fund and is a service of the
Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies, Jacob Brodzki,
chairman.
Philanthropic Funds are a
unique way to support the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale's Foundation
of Jewish Philanthropies En-
dowment Fund. The fund pro-
vides many of the advantages
of a private foundation, but
none of the restrictions, such
as operational costs, legal
penalties or taxes. The
Federation can provide more
information about the Philan-
thropic Fund program and can
expand on the following
information.
Q. What is a Philanthropic
Fund?
A. A Philanthropic Fund is
established by a gift to
Federation for that pur-
pose. A separate fund bear-
ing your name (or one you
specify), is created and your
gift is invested (usually in
common with other philan-
thropic funds) by the
Federation's endowment in-
vestment committee. All in-
come earned is credited to
your fund. You and/or your
spouse can recommend that
distributions of the income
and principal be made to
many valid charities of your
choice, including the
Federation and its agencies.
Q. Why should I establish a
Philanthropic Fund?
A. A Philanthropic Fund of-
fers unique services by the
Federation at little or no
cost to you. The investment,
record keeping, research,
distributions, are all done
by Federation. You receive
an income tax deduction for
the full fair market value of
your gift, but still retain the
opportunity to recommend
charitable distributions.
Q. How is a Philanthropic
Fund established?
A. A simple letter accom-
panied by your gift
establishes the fund. You
will designate the "name"
of the fund and the per-
sons) who can make
recommendations.
Q. How do I use my Philan-
thropic Fund?
A. You will be supplied with
recommendation forms.
Simply fill in the names of
the charity and the amount
recommended. Your
Federation's guidelines and
procedures will indicate
minimum recommen-
dations.
Q. Can I use my Philanthropic
Fund to make my annual
campaign commitment to
Federation?
A. Yes. When approached by a
solicitor for a pledge, do not
sign a pledge card. Instead,
tell him the amount you will
recommend from your
Philanthropic Fund.
Q. Why can't I sign a pledge
card?
A. Your Philanthropic Fund
cannot be used to satisfy an
existing obligation or to ob-
tain a benefit for you.
Q. How Does Federation
determine which of my
recommendations will be
honored?
A. A Federation committee
Memories From '67 to '87
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
The 1982-83 Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
campaign year started off sad-
ly as Samuel J. Goldfarb and
Dr. Arthur Sincoff, both ar-
dent supporters of the Federa-
tion, passed away.
Their dreams lived on
however as the '83 campaign
reached new heights.
Due to the unprecedented
needs facing the State of Israel
and upon the urging of the
Jewish Agency and National
UJA, the Federation's Board
of Directors have adopted a se-
cond line to the 1983 campaign
for the Israel Special Fund.
Funds collected will be
segregated from the regular
campaign and sent directly to
the Jewish Agency for the use
of funding social programs in
Israel.
Federation's top two
women, president Jean
Shapiro and campaign chair
Ethel Waldman urge the com-
munity to make this "one time
gift."
Speaking of Ethel Waldman,
she played hostess to the Ma-
jor Gifts dinner whose commit-
tee members included Jean
Shapiro, Alvin Gross, Victor
Gruman and Joel Reinstein.
The Women's Division
celebrated the opening of the
'83 campaign with a rally at-
tended by newsman Ralph
Renick. The women of the
Masada group ($1,000) did ex-
ceptionally well in '83 accoun-
ting for over $70,000 in
pledges.
The Woodlands community,
always a driving force behind
the Federation campaign,
honored Manny Lax and
presented him with the
Woodlands Community
Award.
The residents of Kfar Saba,
Federation's Project Renewal
City, were honored at a gala
ball celebrating life, held at the
Marriott's 17th Street
Causeway. Alvera Ackerberg
and Victor Gruman chaired
this $1,800 minimum event
which was attended by eight
Kfar Saba children. Special
guest Baron Guy de
Rothschild.
With the March 4 issue of
the FLORIDIAN, over 20,000
families of North Broward
county received the issue, the
highest circulation total to
date.
Missing 6,650 contributors.
That is the number of con-
tributors who gave in the past
two years and have not yet
given in 1983. If they all gave
what they previously did, the
Federation/UJA campaign
would reach its goal. Will
somebody please find them.

Quite Ridiculous
The former number two person
at Israel's Foreign Ministry,
David Kimche, "categorically"
denied a report that he originated
the idea that the United States
transfer funds from the Iran arms
deal to the Nicaraguan contras
(Kol Yisrael, Dec. 30). The
Ministry's ex-Director General
was responding to a New York
Times story which cited an
anonymous source to the effect
that fired National Security Coun-
cil Staffer Lt. Col. Oliver North
had told Attorney General Edwin
Meese that Kimche proposed the
diversion.
"It is really quite ridiculous ...
If he did say this, then my only ex-
planation is that he panicked
somewhat, sought a way to rid
himself of the affair, and chose to
use an Israeli whom he barely
knew," Kimche said.
(Near East Report)
examines each request.
There are two major
criteria to be met before a
distribution will be made:
1. The distribution must be
to a public charity ap-
proved by the IRS.
2. The function of that
charity must be in keep-
ing with the broad pur-
poses of the Federation.
Q. Has Federation ever refus-
ed a recommendation?
A. Yes, if they don't comply
with its criteria for
distribution.
Q. How are funds distributed?
A. Each approved recommen-
dation results in a Federa-
tion check being sent to the
charity. A cover letter in-
forms the charity that the
check was sent as the result
of your recommendation to
your Philanthropic Fund.
Q. Can I add to my Philan-
thropic Fund?
A. Yes, and you can deduct
the full value of each addi-
tional gift. Others can also
donate to your fund on
special occasions and obtain
their own income tax
deduction.
Q. How do I know the status
of my fund?
A. You will receive regular
repoits on the additions,
earnings, recommendations
distributed and new
balance.
Q. Can you give me an exam-
ple of recommendations
that will be approved?
A. Recommendations to
Federation (either in lieu of
annual campaign gift or for
other Federation purposes),
all Federation agencies and
recognized national Jewish
organizations. In addition,
most local cultural, educa-
tional, scientific, medical
and religious institutions
who can be accessed by and
participated in by Jews.
Q. What about political action
committees or private
foundations?
A. No.
Q. Am I taxed on the income
earned by my fund's
investments?
A. No. You have made a com-
pleted charitable donation.
The funds are no longer
yours and earnings will
have no tax impact on you.
Since the Federation does
not pay any tax on the earn-
ings, all the funds remain
available for recommen-
dations.
Q. It seems that Federation is
doing a lot of work and I am
getting a lot of benefits.
How does Federation
benefit?
A. While you, the donor, can
recommend both income
and principal from the fund,
your gift should be made
with the understanding that
a substantial amount of the
fund will remain for use by
the Federation endowment
fund to help the community
once your fund has ended.
As with most fund-raising,
the basics of Endowment Fund
Development are at the core of
its success. The establishment
of an Endowment Fund should
be an integral part of a
Federation's programs, with a
functioning and dedicated
committee enabling this
special fund to flourish. Its
strength is its capacity to be
flexible. Gifts may be in the
form of cash, real estate,
securities, life insurance or
bonds. Bequests, philanthropic
funds and several different
types of trusts permit
members of the community to
participate in a manner which
best serves their needs. It is
far easier in a small communi-
ty due to the intimate
nature of business transac-
tions and social relationships
to explain and market the
concept of the Federation En-
dowment Fund.

VtlHIK'H B I lull I ll'i- Ai'l
Roman's ^otee
By DEBORAH FULLER
HAHN
Publicity Chair
Mrs. Mathilda Brailove
Eleanor Roosevelt taught
Mathilda public speaking and
public acumen. Golda ltMeir
taught Mathilda to weai^ftom-
fortable shoes and carry a
large black handbag. Mathilda
Brailove taught us, the women
of Greater Fort Lauderdale,
the true meaning of being a
dedicated Jewish woman.
The words privilege, respon-
sibility or honor do not even
come close to the emotions felt
by each person who had the
chance to meet and listen to
Mathilda Brailove. This
remarkable woman, who will
shortly reach her 80th year,
spoke to our Women's Division
at both the Lion's Luncheon
and the Women's Leadership
Development meeting.
Through example and story,
we learned that over 40 years
of commitment to the Jewish
people will keep one young,
vivacious, energetic and in-
teresting. In 1945, Mathilda
visited the D.P. camps in Ger-
many to meet with Holocaust
survivors. The horror of those
days will live with her forever.
She recounted the courage of
the women who cared for
families in mud huts, living in
unspeakable conditions, yet
still willing to have children to
succeed those recently lost.
Men, released from concentra-
tion camps only months
before, were training to fight
for a new Jewish homeland.
She then traveled with a group
of five non-Jewish (male) cor-
respondents to visit Palestine,
all of whom believed that a
Jewish State was not viable.
Under the fire of Arab guns,
they drove through Palestine
to meet with David Ben
Gurion. His faith in the Jewish
people and the indomitable
spirit of the survivors would
result in the establishment of
the State of Israel. The reports
Mrs. Brailove sent back to the
United States on the
deplorable conditions during
that period, were the only dai-
ly dispatches written to any
newspaper in the United
States by a Jewish woman.
She was convinced then, as
now, that only Jews will help
other Jews.
Mathilda informed us that
since the end of World War II
there have been 140 wars.
More than 10 million people
have been killed; not including
those who are presently dying
every day in Iran, Iraq,
Lebanon, Ireland, etc, Jews
had to be saved. For over 40
years, The American Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC),
the rescue arm of UJA, has not
only recovered Jews but has
strengthened democracy in
many parts of the globe. No
other people airlifted human
beings from the famine in'
Ethiopia ... the latest in a
long tradition of Jewish salva-
tion operations. In the last 40
years, Israel has grown from a
population of 600,000 to 4
million and become a factor in
the world. In any conference
anywhere, in every capital in
the world, Israel is on the
agenda. Many times to our
dismay ... not in a positive
light.
Living in a country with a
free press, there is no excuse
for any Jew not to know what
is happening to Jews around
the world. She assured us that
there is no place in the world
where Jews live, that we can-
not be in touch with them ...
either legally or illegally. In-
deed, as we know, some coun-
tries do not allow their Jews to
communicate with co-
religionists outside of their
own borders.
Mathilda Brailove shared
with us her feelings pertaining
to a woman's decision to
become a leader in Federation.
Said she, "Something happens
to anybody who gets involved.
She gets more dimension. She
has a joy in living that doing
ordinary things won't give her.
I am going to be 80 years old
on my next birthday, and I
know it has been my involve-
ment these last 41 years that
makes me feel the way I do. I
have a zest for life that would
not have been the same under
any other circumstance. It is
one of the most important in-
vestments you will make,
either of your time or your
money. It will be the most im-
portant investment you will
make in your lifetime."
For many years, Mathilda
was a Bridge champion and
she also won many tennis
trophies. In fact, while she was
stUlin high school, she met her
late husband on the tennis
court. Much later, her life
changed dramatically when
she Degan campaigning for
UJA. Her husband took over
many of her household duties
and she says of him, "He was a
better mother than I was a
father. He respected me for
what I was doing. He told peo-
ple that he would rather share
Mathilda with the Jewish peo-
ple part time than have any
other woman full time.
Without his total support, I
could not have done it.
She explained that woman's
responsibility has been evident
since biblical times. History
could have changed had Sarah
asked Abraham to convert his
son Ishmael to his faith, as he
was doing with others. By sen-
ding him to the desert, she
made a serious mistake. Is it
possible that if Sarah had
given her husband better ad-
vice, Israel would not now be
fighting those 'descendants of
Abraham?'
Today women battle for
equal rights, they hold respon-
sible positions, they make com-
petent decisions every day ...
for the family, for the com-
munity and for themselves.
When it comes to personal par-
ticipation in a campaign, which
makes the difference in Jewish
life, they suddenly become
dependant and have to confer
with someone else. Mathilda
asks us the question, '"Isn't the
personal decision to make an
independent commitment to
campaign as important as
what to serve for dinner or
where to go Saturday night?"
She continued, "When we
believe that our service to the
Jewish community is as impor-
tant as everything else we do
in our lives, then we unders-
tand the importance of an in-
dependent gift."
We enjoyed the story she
related recounting the time
when, as a young mother, she
made a pledge of $700. Her
husband was appalled.
Mathilda showed him now she
would pay her $700 ... on the
other side of the ledger she in-
dicated all the things she could
have had, if she wanted them.
She had saved him $7,000! She
proved to him that what she
could do without, would make
her richer ... if she gave the
money to something she truly
believed in.
It is a time-consuming oc-
cupation, but she says, "Oh,
have I had fun!" for over 40
years, this woman, who has
dedicated her own life to work-
ing for the betterment of the
Jewish people, has enriched all
of our lives. Mathilda Brailove
remains an inspiration to all of
us in the (sometimes
unrecognized) world of
dedicated working volunteers.
Women's Division Honors One of
Its Own at Inverrary Pacesetters
At the January 14th Inver-
rary Pacesetters Ball members
of the Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale came out to
join in honoring Hilda Leibo,
one of four Inverrary residents
being honored. Hilda is a
tireless worker on behalf of
Federation/UJA in both the
Women's Division Campaign
and the Inverrary Division of
the general campaign.
A member of the Women's
Division Board of Directors,
Hilda is serving her second
year as chair of the Women's
Division Play-A-Day For UJA
Golf and Tennis Tournaments,
an event she initiated during
the 1986 campaign. This year
three tournaments will be held
at Palm Aire on March 2, at
Inverrary on March 5, and at
Woodmont on April 2.
Among those attending the
Pacesetter's Ball to join in
honoring Hilda were several
members of the Inverrary
Play-A-Day For UJA Commit-
tee, as well as Women's Divi-
sion President Esther Lerner,
Campaign chair Alvera Gold,
Executive Committee
members Deborah Hahn and
Lois Polish, and life member
Min Gruman.

Q CAMPAIGN fM
Sixth Annual Lion of Judah Celebration
On Jan. 13 the Women's
Division held its sixth annual
Lion of Judah celebration in
support of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale/United Jewish Appeal
Campaign. Forty-eight Fort
Lauderdale women attended
the 1987 Lion of Judah Brun-
cheon, chaired by Gladys
Daren and Florence K. Straus.
The Bruncheon was hosted
by Jo Ann Levy at the Boca
Raton home of her parents,
Beatrice and Richard Levy.
Joining Jo Ann on the hostess
committee were Gladys Daren,
Alvera A. Gold, Deborah F.
Hahn, Esther Lerner, Anita
Perlman and Florence K.
Straus.
The Levys invited the Fort
Lauderdale Lion of Judah
women to their home to view
their magnificent Judaica col-
lection. Federation's Director
of Education, Dr. Abraham
Gittelson, helped to bring the
Judaica to life by conducting a
guided tour of the collection.
Highlighting the program
was a presentation by
Mathilda Brailove, a
remarkable woman who
chaired the National UJA
Women's Division from
1949-1952. Reviewing her own
years of involvement with
Federation/UJA, Mrs.
Brailove was, and is, an in-
spiration. Pointing out
countless examples of the dif-
ference women have made in
the thousands of years of
Jewish history, Mrs. Brailove
urged the women to continue
that tradition of female leader-
ship by setting a standard of
independent giving.
And the Fort Lauderdale's
women responded to the
challenge. The 48 women in
the room raised a total of
$425,738 for the 1987
Women's Division Campaign,
representing a 38 percent
card-for-card increase over
1986.
The Lion of Judah is a 14K
gold and diamond pin
presented to women who make
an independent campaign gift
in their own name of at least
$5,000. Each year that a
woman continues a gift of
$5,000 or more, an additional
diamond is set in the pin. This
year 12 women entered the
Lion of Judah Division, five of
whom had never before given
a Campaign gift in their own
name, independent of their
husband's gift.
In a moving ceremony, new
Lion of Judah pins were
presented at the Bruncheon.
Alvera Gold made the presen-
tation to Pearl Reinstein,
Claire Oshry to Lorraine
William, Charlotte Padek to
Lillian Hirsch, Maya Nathan to
Alice Kaye, Esther Libowsky
to Dorothy Shooster, Pearl
Reinstein to Nedda Anders,
Janet Sherr to Martha
Hirschman and Gladys Daren
to Tola Messing. Four of the
new Lions were unable to at-
tend, and will receive their
pins individually Debra
Becker, Ruth Gross, Micky
Halpern, and Miriam Krawitz.
Among the favors given to
the women who attended were
Lion of Judah note pads, and
perfume samples donated by
Lord and Taylor.

"Can any Jew do less?'
Ely Kushel is the 1987
Federation/UJA chairman for
the Inverrary Division. He has
been an active member of the
Inverrary campaign for a
number of years.
"Despite the squabbles that
occur from time to time in the
State of Israel, the entire peo-
ple is united as one in its love
for the land and the resolve to
defend it from terrorists or
any combination of Arab ag-
gressors that surround it."
That was the main thrust of
the message that Joel H.
Telles, Administrative Direc-
tor of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale,
brought to 1,500 residents of
Century Village in Deerfield
Beach who attended the third
annual "Israel Update" in the
theater of the mam Clubhouse.
Telles who just returned
from a special mission to
Israel, went on to report on
the scarcity of Jewish life in
Poland where the mission
stopped on its way to Israel.
"The Jewish population in
Poland which was 3Vi-million
before World War II is now
just about 5,000, almost all of
whom are over 70 years of
age." He went on to describe a
visit to Auschwitz where the
Nazis cremated millions of
Jews and the piles of shoes,
hair and various articles that
are systematically stacked as
they were by the Nazis.
Evelyn Denner, immediate
past chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal and chairman
for this year's special events of
the UJA, was chairman of the
"Israel Update." She explain-
ed that the event was spon-
sored by the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale and that the door to door
UJA campaign began Jan. 18
and will continue on successive
Sundays until and including

tario at the age of 96. He had been
the first president of the Jewish
Community Council in London
and a member of the national
board of the Canadian Friends of
the Hebrew University.
Born Pinchas Baer in the
Ukraine, he came to Canada with
his parents early in the century
and built up a prosperous retail
business. He came to national pro-
minence in 1948 when he brought
legal action against an anti-Jewish
racial covenant on property be
wanted to buy in the resort area of
Grand Bend, Ontario.
When the covenant was upheld
by a lower court, Wolf appealed to
the Canadian Supreme Court
which voided the covenant in what
entered Canadian law as the No-
ble and Wolf vs. Beach O'Pines
case. The court barred clauses in
land or property deeds which
state that the property may not be
sold or rented or in any way used
by persons of a given race or
religion.
Although not religious, Wolf
was active in many Jewish causes.
He was a strong supporter of
Jewish culture and of the
Workmen's Circle when it had a
branch in London.

Newswire/U.S.A.
NEW YORK America's assistance to Israel is "a
highly productive bargain," according to Sen. Larry
Pressler (R.SD). "One outstanding and less appreciated
fact" is the tremendous return the U.S. obtains from its
small economic and security assistance contribution to
Israel, he told some 600 people at the annual New York
Regions Dinner of the Zionist Organization of America
recently.
NEW YORK Agudath of Israel of America, the nation-
wide coalition of Orthodox Jews, has moved its head-
quarters to 84 Williams St. The phone number is (212)
797-9000.
NEW YORK Aleh, the rehabilitation program for
brain-injured children in B'nei B'rak, Israel, has created a
support network to raise funds for the construction of a $2
lion center for therapeutic care.
Newswire/Washinqton
CONGRESSMAN CLAY Shaw proposed a resolution to
eliminate a $12,100 Congressional pay raise and restrict
U.S. representatives to their current salaries. "In these
days of trillion dollar budgets and billion dollar deficits,
Congress has no business granting itself a five figure
raise," Shaw said. "It's unconscionable to ask the
American people to accept cuts in their federal programs
and increases for their federal representatives."
TERMING THE 1986 figures for Soviet Jewish emigra-
tion "an appalling example of a dismal Soviet human rights
performance," the national president of the Union of Coun-
cils for Soviet Jews has reiterated her demand for the im-
mediate emigration of the nearly 400,000 Soviet Jews who
wish to leave the USSR.

T'Zedakah Not A Charity
We are not involved in the work of charity. The meaning
of charity is too narrow to fully define the breadth of our
deeds.
Perhaps because there is no clear English definition of
T'zedakah some people have become confused. The closest
definition that has been accepted is Justice.
Each Jew is expected to perform acts of T'zedakah.
There are many levels of T'zedakah and ways in which one
may perform this Mitzvah.
Our sages tell us that it is the responsibility of every com-
munity to seek out its leadership to organize these efforts.
There are rules of behavior that are set forth in our tradi-
tion. Basically, everyone, even the poorest, are expected to
participate. Guidelines exist on how to solicit and when and
how the funds should be distributed. We try to meet our
modern objectives while building on our religious
foundations.
Thus, the pattern of our giving must be in concert with
our view of ourselves as partners with G-d in the perfec-
tion of our world. How we function has to be above
reproach.
We view our campaign in this fashion. We take seriously
our role in the fulfillment of the commandment to do
T'zedakah. We train our leaders to be sensitive to the needs
of our donors. We ask you for the same treatment. It is
your responsibility to learn, fully, what needs exist and
what your role should be.
We are performing the age-old tradition of community
support.
The Mitzvah of T'zedakah can enrich your life. It also
enriches the lives of Jews you may never meet. Their
dreams are central to our world. This year invest in a little
Jewish peace with your own money. The dividends will be
enormous.

and Paul'8 two daughters
Nina and Iris. Iris is mar-
ried to Chuck Young and
they are parents of our first
grandson!
M.H.: All this, I'm sure,
because you started work-
ing at the JCC on Valen-
tine's Day.
J.T.: Wait! There's more. My
son Michael moved here
from Colorado and I told
him he ought to go to a
Young Singles meeting at
the JCC. After complaining,
"Oh, Mother," for a while,
he finally went and met
Lori there. They were mar-
ried in '85!
M.H.: Our Center of romance!
We can see why the Tekels
will always remain close to
JCC! Tell me more about
the years before the Center
moved to the Sunrise Blvd.
Campus.
J.T.: I'd say we became a
recognized facility in the
Jewish as well as the
general communities. So
many new programs were
organized to begin to ac-
commodate the thousands
of Jewish newcomers to
Broward County during
those years. We fast
outgrew our four little
rooms on 33rd Ave. and the
rest is history ... Here we
are on Sunrise since '79
because of the interest and
generosity of some wonder-
ful benefactors. And
everybody knows our JCC.
We have hundreds of ac-
tivities serving thousands of
people.
M.H.: In these ten years
you've been witness to the
Center's phenomenal
growth. You must feel pret-
ty good about being in on
the beginnings of all this ac-
tivity. As program
registrar, what are your
responsibilities now?
J.T.: I'm the one who has to be
in the know about
everything! Programs, fees,
times, teachers. I handle the
accounts receivable pro-
gram fees, sell tickets, per-
sonally register people who
sign up for classes ... Most
of all, I'm on the phone
answering questions. The
switchboard, I would say,
refers more calls to mv ex-
tension than anyone else's.
And today, the girls in the
office or at the board don't
need a volunteer to get a
lunch hour. There are many
who can take on the ques-
tions and answer with ex-
pertise and plenty of
knowledge, and pinch hit
for each other with ease!
M.H.: And to sum it all up,
Judy, you like it here.
J.T.: Working at the JCC is
like being part of an extend-
ed family!
CONGRATULATIONS,
JUDY TEKEL FOR YOUR 10
YEARS OF DEVOTION.
MAY THERE BE MANY
MORE.
IMPROVE YOURSELF AT
THE JCC
The Center offers three
special classes led by the direc-
tor or one of the associates of
the Center for Psychological
Services. Each class is
scheduled for four consecutive
sessions and begins the first
week of February:
A MORE LOVING LOOK
AT YOURSELF
This class, led by Joan
Lieberman, M. Ed., CPS
associate, will help you build
up your self esteem and your
self image. Begins Feb. 2 for
During the January Board
Meeting JCC officers, direc-
tors and staff presented a
handsome bronze sculpture to
Judy Tekel honoring her for
10 years of service to JCC as a
loyal and devoted member of
the Center's staff. Also pre-
sent to witness the presenta-
tion were members of Judy's
family including her husband
Paul, her parents Ben and
Ruth Eppy and her daughter
Ronda.
Beginning her association
with JCC on Valentine's Day,
February 14, 1977, Judy was
hired as switchboard-
receptionist-secretary. And as
the Center grew and moved to
its new location on Sunrise
Blvd. in 1979, she was the
logical choice to become pro-
gram registrar, a job title she
retains today. Following is an
account of a conversation with
Judy, the Center's "oldest
employee' (in terms of long
term employment, not age!)
highlighting her personal
observations about the Soref
Jewish Community Center,
Perlman Campus-then and
now!
Muriel Haskell: How come
you applied to the Center in
'77?
Judy Tekel: A friend of mine
told me that there was a
new JCC in the Federation
building on 33rd Ave. I
heard there was an opening.
I'd recently been widowed
and after almost a year I
decided to listen to my fami-
ly and friends and get out in
the world again.
M.H.: What was the JCC like
then?
J.T.: JCC was housed in the
two story Federation
building they had their of-
fices and meeting rooms
upstairs we the new
JCC had four rooms
downstairs, street level.
M.H.: How many people were
running this new Center at
that time?
J.T.: I think I was the fourth
employee hired. There was
Bill Goldstein, the director;
Sandy Jackowitz, the girl
who planned programs, did
books and almost
everything else and
Helen Nathan in the office
and then me to replace
Helen who was starting an
Adult and Seniors program
for the Center.
M.H.: Must have been ideal
working with such a small
intimate staff.
J.T.: But we were all kept on
our toes busy with our
own obligations. I did swit-
chboard and secretarial
work. Then, as we got notic-
ed in the Jewish as well as in
the general community the
calls kept coming in fast.
Nobody else could cover the
phones for me. You know
how I finally got a lunch
hour?
M.H.: How?
J.T.: They found a willing
volunteer to come in bet-
ween 12 and 1 every day to
handle the switchboard.
M.H.: What were some of the
first programs you all
started?
J.T.: Some exercise classes
for adults they didn't call
it fitness then a few
classes in Jewish history,
book reviews and such. And
we began to organize a little
school for little children.
That, to me, was so impor-
tant! When we moved down
here from Youngstown,
Ohio in '67, with our three
children there was no
nursery school for my three
year old to go to. I had to
send him to school in a
church. It was more than 10
years later, but I was really
excited about having a
Jewish school for young
children. The only place in
Fort Lauderdale a small
child could go to and be in a
Jewish environment with
other kids was in a temple.
M.H.: So JCC began by serv-
ing our youngest. Did they
have a summer camp pro-
gram, too?
J.T.: They sure did. A summer
camp was started and we
bussed the kids to TY Park
in Hollywood for
everything including
sports and swimming. We
had no outdoor facilities to
speak of on 33rd Ave.
M.H.: You talked about pro-
gram for Seniors. What
about adults in the 30's,
40's, 50*8?
"J.T.: Glad you asked. Besides
some programs of history
and culture the Center
had organized a Singles
group which met in our
rooms. There was this nice
young man who was active
in it and came to the office
often to make ar-
rangements and work out
details for the group
which I helped handle. That
was Paul Tekel. We got to
know each other we
started dating and were
married a year and a half
later. That was close to nine
years ago and our well-
blended family includes my
two sons Rick and Michael
Magill, Michael's wife Lori,
my daughter Ronda and her
husband Scott Altschuler,
Ruth and Ben Eppy, Ronda Altschuler, and Judy and Paul Tekel
show off the beautiful sculpture of three dancers awarded to Judy
at a recent Center board meeting. The presentatwn marked
Judy's 10th anniversary with the JCC.

Murphy Rejected
State-run Damascus radio has
rejected in the harshest terms
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State
Richard Murphy's current trip to
the Middle East.
The commentary condemned
bilateral peace agreements bet-
ween Israel and Arab nations,
saying, "The U.S. Administration
is intent on resisting genuine
peace efforts and pressuring Arab
sides to be dragged into the pitfall
of direct capitulationist negotia-
tions ... This approach .. failed
in the past and will not succeed in
toe future" (Radio Damascus,
Jan. 3).
(Near East Report)
The Florida Region of the
B'nai B'rith Youth Organiza-
tion recently held its Annual
State-Wide Convention, Dec.
22-26 at the Lake Yale Baptist
Assembly in Eustice, Florida.
Coordinated by Marc Blattner
of Orlando and Alyse Horowitz
of Miami, the Convention at-
tracted 155 Jewish teenagers.
Incorporated into each of the
many programs was the
theme, "All For One and One
For All," which focused on
Soviet Jewry. Throughout the
week the participants were
helped to understand the dif-
ficulties faced by Jews in the
USSR and the obstacles that
stand in the way of their
freedom.
In an attempt to stimulate
the process of taking a trip to
the USSR, all of the par-
ticipants were asked to fill out
visa applications prior to the
Convention. Upon their arrival
at the camp grounds they were
met by "Soviet Officials" who
subjected them to a thorough
customs check before pro-
viding them with a "tem-
porary internal passport,"
clearly stamped with the iden-
tifications "Jew."
Other activities, designed to
further increase the youth's
awareness, included fur-
nishing a daily "Pravda"
(which included many actual
articles from the Soviet press)
and giving them a meal pat-
terned after the daily diet of
Soviet prisoners bread,
water and a few potatoes.
Their initial reaction was
predictable, but afterwards
many youth felt they had gain-
ed a better insight about the
hardships faced by "Prisoners
of Conscience."
Highlights of the Convention
inluded a music/video presen-
tation on "Rock and Roll and
Religion" by Aley Sheer, a
visit by an Israeli torch run-
ner, a talent show, a mock
"international forum" on
Soviet Jewry, Israeli dancing,
"Life Ceremonies," and a
dance.
Several business meetings
were also held, featuring end-
of-the year States by outgoing
Presidents, Marc Blattner and
Jami Goldfarb, and the elec-
tion of new officers for the up-
coming year. New officers for
the AZA (boys component) are
Adam Silverman, president;
David Schimmel, vice-
president; Brett Berlin,
secretary; Brad Berman,
Membership; and Marc Blatt-
ner, chaplain. Officers for the
BBG (girls component) are
Adrian Nieman, president;
Stacey Goodman, vice-
president; Lauren Horowitz,
secretary; Lisa Steinman,

With Rhyme
And Reason
Reaching
The Heights
If we would make life easier
For someone else each day,
Our welcome mat in heaven
would
Unfold in full array ...
If we would be of service to
Those who are in need,
It's safe to think that heaven
would
Reward us for each deed ...
If we would do for other folks
What we want done for us,
To heaven's door a sunlit path
Would take each one of
us...
If we would love a neighbor as
We are ordained to do,
We'd find ourselves in
Paradise
When our stay is
through...
Our lives would be much
happier,
And we would head His way
If we would make life easier
For someone else each day.

No Confidence
Gov't. Beats Back Five Motions
By HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The government has
defeated five non-
confidence motions h^'the
Knesset over the new
economic plan approved by
the Cabinet. But it remains
locked in dispute with
Histadrut over a proposed
$30 million cut in subsidies
to the Kupat Holim (sick
fund) which was excised
from the Health Ministry's
budget.
The imbroglio forced postpone-
ment of the ceremonial signing of
the economic plan by the govern-
ment, Histadrut and the Associa-
tion of Manufacturers and
Employers. It had been scheduled
for Tuesday night (Jan. 13).
Talks continued throughout
Wednesday between Finance
Minister Moshe Nissim, the heads
of the Treasury's Budget Depart-
ment, and Yisrael Kessar,
secretary general of Histadrut.
The labor federation has dug in
its heels against the subsidy cut.
Kupat Holim, which provides com-
prehensive health care benefits, is
a major inducement for Israelis to
join Histadrut.
Meanwhile, the Education
Ministry is conducting its own bat-
tle against cuts in the education
budget. Members of the Histadrut
Teachers Association, mainly
elementary and junior high school
teachers, staged a one-day strike
Thursday (Jan. 15) against the
cuts and the education tax which
is another feature of the new
economic program. Classes were
held for only the first two grades.
Swiss Air Force
Plans To Buy 40 Teleguided
Military Aircraft From Israel
GENEVA (JTA) The Swiss Air Force plans to
buy 48 Scout teleguided military aircraft from Israel at a
cost of 50 million Swiss Francs, the Lausanne daily Le
Matin reported last week.
AIR FORCE CHIEF Gen. Walter Duerig said Scouts
purchased in 1985 were tested and found acceptable under
local conditions. Hans Rudolf Strasser, a Defense Ministry
spokesman, confirmed the Le Matin report.
He said Switzerland wants to reach a licensing agree-
ment with Israel so that local enterprise can have a hand in
manufacturing the aircraft.
DURING THE Knesset debate,
the government's plan was attack-
ed by both the left and rightwing
parties. Yair Tsaban of Mapam,
pointing to Labor Party leader
Shimon Peres, the Vice Premier
and Foreign Minister, who is a
strong supporter of the economic
plan, declared, "You will go down
as the man who organized the
counter-revolution against social
security in Israel."
Rafael Eitan of the Tehiya Par-
ty charged that the coalition
government encouraged"destruc-
tive apathy" among the public. He
said Israelis have no confidence in
the government and have lost
hope for the future.
Shulamit Aloni of the Citizens
Rights Movement (CRM) attacked
the devaluation of the Shekel, a
major feature of the economic
plan. She said it was part and
parcel of the government's skew-
ed priorities.
MATITYAHU PELED of the
Progressive List noted that the
military's refusal of cuts in the
defense budget was accepted by
the government, while it slashed
the budgets for health, education
and housing.
Communist Party leader Meir
Vilner assailed Histadrut for
"helping off the legs of
workers." He added that
government "wants to cut
their arms as well."
Nissim, replying for the gover-
ment, was repeatedly heckled by
Yaacov Shamai, who heads the
Likud faction in Histadrut. When
a hand vote was taken on the non-
confidence motions, both Shamai
and Histadrut chief Kessar were
absent from the chamber.

bank to operate in the administered territories since 1967.
The Central Bank of Jordan announced that it has approv-

been amenable for some time. The bank in Nablus will be
the latest in a series of measures taken recently by Jordan
to strengthen its ties with the Arab residents of the West
Bank and reduce the influence of the Palestine Liberation
Organization in the territory.

Israel, Egypt and Jordan was described as "possible" by a

ON JAN. 13, Carp were released into a lake in Inverrary

experimental effort to control damaging hydrilla infesta-
tion. Hydrilla, also known as Florida elodea, are fresh
water plants that deplete the oxygen supply, form large
floating mats which clog the water ways, and are potential-
ly damaging to human health. The funds to construct the
fish gates that will keep the Carp in the lake and prevent
them from swimming into open waters came from a
$30,000 State grant.
MORE THAN $134 million in bonds to finance the

Israeli Writers View the Holocaust

Facing the Holocaust:
Selected Israeli Fiction.
Edited by Gila Ramras-Rauch
and Joseph Michman-
MeUanan. The Jewish Publica-
tion Society. Philadelphia, PA.
1985. 292 pages. $16.95.
Reviewed by Jacob Kabakoff
The problems connected
with the literary depiction of
the Holocaust have been dealt
with in a spate of books that
have all endorsed Elie Wiesel's
contention that language is in-
adequate to describe the evil
that was loosed upon the world
by the Nazis. Many of the
writers who have tried to deal
with the Holocaust have
therefore found it necessary to
forsake realistic description
for symbolic, and even sur-
realistic, treatment of plot and
character. They have had to
mythologize the evil in order to
cope with it in literary terms.
If the Holocaust has
challenged the imagination of
gifted authors in many
languages, it has impinged
most strongly on the work of
Israeli writers of every stamp
and persuasion. As Gershon
Shaked points out in his after-
word to the present anthology
of selected Israeli fiction, the
Holocaust is part of the collec-
tive "national" experience of
these writers.

ICO Roadblocks
Many obstacles remain to be
cleared before the Islamic Con-
ference Organization can convene
in Kuwait later this month. The
summit would bring together the
leaders of more than 40 Islamic
countries.
Iran has accused Kuwait of sup-
porting Iraq in the Iran-Iraq war
and has formally requested that
the meeting be held elsewhere
(Reuters, Jan. 6). Syria refused to
attend the conference due to the
presence of Egypt's President
Hosni Mubarak and Morocco's
King Hassan, both of whom have
met with former Israeli Prime
Minister Shimon Peres.
Also, Kuwaiti radio reported
that intensive contacts are being
made to convene a meeting bet-
ween Mubarak, Jordan's King
Hussein and PLO Chairman Yasir
Arafat during the summit (Kuwait
News Agency, Jan. 4).
(Near East Report)
pelfeld, Uri Orlev and Itamar
Yaoz-Kest, experienced the.
Holocaust itself. Others, like
Hanoch Bartov and Chaim
Gouri, met up with the sur-
vivors in Europe. And all
Israeli authors, whether of
European origin or native-
born, rubbed shoulders in
Israel with the survivors and
witnessed their effort to
rehabilitate their lives. The
various facets of the Holocaust
trauma represented by these
levels of experience have
found their expression in
Israeli literature and are
reflected in large measure in
the present anthology.
Fiction usually lags behind
poetry in portraying historical
events of the magnitude of the
Holocaust. Actually, it was
Hebrew poets like Uri Zvi
Greenberg, Yitzhak Lamdan
and Yaakov Kahan, all of
whom stemmed from Europe,
that first made Holocaust
themes central to their work.
They were joined by several
prose writers who had their
roots in the Old World and who
turned their attention to the
ravages of the Holocaust. In

the case of the native-born
Israeli writers, however, a
period of adjustment to the
realities of the Holocaust was
necessary before they could
begin to deal with them in ar-
tistic terms. It is only in the
60s that we begin to get novels
and short stories by sabra
writers who began to address
the problems of 20th-century
existence for which there are
no easy answers.
It was Aharon Megged, who
came to Palestine from Poland
as a child, who touched on the
question of Jewish continuity.
In his story "The Name," a
young Israeli couple cannot go
along with their grandfather's
request to name their child
Mendele, in memory of a
grandchild who perished in the
Holocaust. They thus
epitomize the quest for a new
Israeli identity that has no ties
with the Old World. Israeli-
born Hanoch Bartov draws
upon his experience in the
Hebrew Brigade to portray the
feelings of an Israeli medic
who comes face to face with a
German family. Here the
Jewish emphasis upon morali-
ty and ethics is contrasted
with Nazi bestiality.
Several of the stories trans-
cend events to construct
dreamlike fantasies. Itamar
Yaoz-Kest and Shulamit
Hareven transport us to sur-
realistic scenes in an effort to
recapture their past. Uri Orlev
depicts the childhood
Holocaust experiences of two
brothers, while David Shutz
has his protagonist return to
Germany together with his
brother in order to seek out
their mother who had left
them in the care of a non-
Jewish neighbor. Only in a few
of the stories does the action
operate on a realistic plane, as
in Michal Govrin's ,rLa Pro-
menade," which describes the
life of some Holocaust sur-
vivors who have "resettled" in
Europe.
Among the authors
represented in the anthology
are also Aharon Appelfeld and
Yehuda Amichai whose work
is well known in translation.
Appelfeld's story, "Bertha," is
of a piece with his other por-
trayals of the aftereffects of
the Holocaust on its victims, in
this case on a young retarded
girl and her self-appointed
guardian. Amichai presents an
existential account of "The
Times My Father Died," which
does not follow any direct
story line but endeavors to
bridge past and present.
As is evident from the
discussion in Gila Ramras-
Rauch's introduction as well as
in Gershon Shaked's after-
word, the 12 stories gathered
here by no means exhaust the
available fictional material by
Israeli writers on Holocaust
themes. A companion an-
thology of Israeli Holocaust
fiction could well be compiled
from the writings of such
authors as Yoram Kaniuk,
Haim Gouri, Naomi Frankel,
Jonat and Alexander Sened,
Amos Oz, David Grossman and
others. Both the editors and
the publisher are to be com-
mended for making available
this impressive sampling ol
Israeli writing that has been
forged in the crucible of
human suffering and artistic
struggle.
