'Our Israeli-U.S. Relations Solid.. .' Kalb
"For four, decades, the
relationship between the
United States and Israel has
been special and of an ex-
traordinary nature, and
there is no reason to believe
that the most recent Iran-
Contra scandal should
change this."
Bernard Kalb, the
keynote speaker at the
Federation/United Jewish
Appeal Leadership Gifts
Dinner-Dance held Feb. 7 at
Fort Lauderdale's Marriott
Harbor Beach Resort,
assured the close to three
hundred North Broward
County Jewish leaders that
both Israel and U.S. will
continue to achieve the most
cooperative and cohesive
understanding of all nations
in the free world.
Keynoter Bernard Kalb
It was a festive occasion
when the men and women
gathered for the first
citywide event held in
Greater Fort Lauderdale's
campaign history, i.e., din-
ing, dancing and a
memorable address by the
former assistant Secretary
of State for Public Affairs.
Following a warm
welcome by Division co-
chair Elaine Cohn of Planta-
tion, Sheldon S. Polish,
general chair, announced
that the total to date tally
for the 1987 Federa-
tion/UJA campaign was $5
million, more than a million
dollars ahead of last year at
this time. He said, "It is
because of the heartfelt
generosity of campaigners
such as yourself that for the
first time in our 20-year
history, Federation/UJA
will record the most
outstanding fund-raising
drive to aid in the social
welfare and humanitarian
work of our 50 plus
beneficiaries and agencies."
Oceanside resident Lee
Rauch, division co-chair,
assured the special group
that this meeting, which
was vital to the success of
the campaign, has been in-
strumental in bringing
about a united Federa-
tion/UJA, one that spans
from every end of the
Following the speech,
Federation president Brian

is only the story of one man
that thousands have endured
similar torture and that
thousands more perished.
The tune is the same in
Redemption Song but there are
many more notes.
This is written as you would
expect a good reporter to
write, and Louis Rapoport, a
Jerusalem Post senior editor,
is just that.
He extensively researched
Operation Moses and, while
Jews everywhere understan-
dably are proud of the results,
this wasn t a situation where
success was assured. The of-
ficial rescue program began in
November, 1984, but attempts
to save the Ethiopian Jews had
begun many years before
and not without opposition.
Even the venerable Golda
Meir was quoted as saying
"Don't we have enough
It was Menachem Begin who
started the rescue machinery
in operation and his successors
followed through, implemen-
ting a many-faceted program
that had to overcome
treachery and duplicity, that
involved bribery and intimida-
tion, saw nation pitted against
nation and finally succeeded
because of the power and
pressure and resources of the
United States.
And not the least of the pro-
blems was the lack of harmony
and cooperation among major
Jewish organizations. In fact
an egregious error in judg-
ment by Leon Dulzin, head of
the Jewish Agency, reportedly
came close to halting the
operation in its tracks. I was in
Toronto at the 1984 General
Assembly of the National
Council of Jewish Federations
when Dulzin came under at-
tack by a small group who
charged the Jewish Agency
with not doing enough for the
Ethiopian Jews.
Dulzin, defendind himself,
revealed that a secret rescue
operation was about to begin,
even while pointing out that
premature publicity would be
ruinous. Dulin later addressed
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion in New York and again
alluded to the rescue
Nimeiry conveniently was
looking the other way. Despite
the publicity, he continued to
look the other way. The opera-
tion was not official, he said.
He didn't mention all the
financial aid he was getting.
Zel Levin, a Rhode Island
newspaperman for more than
50 years, has just retired as
editor of the national prize-

Adulterated History
His delivery was smooth and rapid fire. No time to think.
No time to analyze. Statements are thrown at the audience
like a baseball batter scattering balls to a team in practice.
Claims are intended to be accepted as facts and truths, and
they frighteningly are by the gullible and eager audience.
The speaker was David Irving, author of the Destruction
of Dresden and self-styled "professional historian." Accor-
ding to the Center for Democratic Renewal, Irving in the
late 1950s edited two student magazines, which praised
apartheid. He's also belonged to organizations, whose
members include neo-Nazis.
He was addressing about 100 middle class citizens, who
had paid five dollars to attend a meeting of the Atlanta
Committee of Historical Review. It's part of the Institute
for Historical Review, based in Costa Mesa, California, and
which has as its ostensible objective the correction of
historical lies. In fact, it is an organization devoted to
perpetuating falsehoods and bigotry.
Irving, who speaks with a British accent that tends to
lend credibility to his remarks, began by noting the ap-
propriateness of his appearance. It coincided with the
awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to Elie Wiesel, describ-
ed by Irving as a "media personality" and "professional
survivor." Although Irving touched on a number of events,
he consistently returned to the topics of Hitler, Jews and
the Holocaust.
He boldly asserted that Hitler was the best ally of
England, for he wanted to preserve the British Empire. He
turned to Pearl Harbor and claimed that the private papers
of Harry Hopkins, Henry Morgenthau, Secretary of the
Treasury, and Henry Stimson, Secretary of War, proved
that Franklin Roosevelt knew in advance of the Japanese
attack. Then he threw in that FDR was influenced by Jews
while in fact he was anti-Semitic.
Before Hitler came to power, Irving claimed that he was
financed by two Berlin bankers. He mocked that he would
surely be labeled anti-Semitic if he mentioned their
religion, but he noted that one was a leader of Zionism in
Germany. Nevertheless, he did come out and state they
were Jews, which the audience by this time clearly
understood. His source was an alleged August 8, 1937 let-
ter from German Chancellor Heinrich Bruning to Winston
Churchill, whom he charged was a drunkard and painted
pictures to which he forged the signatures of deceased
While alleging that there existed no German records to
support the claim that Hitler favored using poison gas in
warfare, he returned to his favorite topic and in his dis-
jointed fashion remarked that Hitler was unaware of
Treblinka, the death camp. Historians get Tay-Sachs
disease, which he erroneously claimed only Jews get, when
dealing with the Holocaust. If the Nazis intended to exter-
minate Jews, why transport them, he questioned. He
charged also that there is no evidence that Hitler knew of
Auschwitz. He admitted Jews were killed, but these were
"slip-shod" massacres by the S.S. Any murders of Jews
were "ad hoc." No organized plan of mass exterrnination
Historians, he argued, have conveniently overlooked a
1942 German Ministry of Justice document, which proved
that Hitler wanted a solution to the Jewish problem
postponed until after the War. This very comment seems
contradictory. What was the Jewish problem if, as Irving
claimed, Hitler really tried to protect Jews? Irving did not
say what the "solution" was to be. The idea of one man
wanting to kill six million and more Jews is a "romantic"
notion Jews have fostered, he asserted.
He spoke about Libya and South Africa and claimed that
they were being "set up" as Germany and Hitler had been.
He threw in another derogatory comment about Wiesel,
and the audience, mostly in their 30s and 40s, applauded
The meeting was at the Waverly Hotel in Cobb County,
one of the suburban counties surrounding Atlanta. It is
ironic that just about a mile away is the site of the lynching
of Leo Frank.

The 1985-86 campaign year
got off to a sad beginning as
Federation past president and
community leader, Edmund
Entin, passed away. The en-
tire North Broward communi-
ty mourned his passing.
It was also that time of the
year when Federation elected
a new president. Leading the
Federation into 1986 was
Brian J. Sherr. As his first
order of business, he appointed
Oceanside resident John
Streng to serve as '86 general
campaign chairman. Streng, a
native of Chicago, pledged his
deep devotion and commit-
ment to the office of campaign
It was a banner year for
Federation leaders as a
number of individuals were ap-
pointed to national, regional,
and local posts. Alvera Gold
was appointed Project
Renewal chair for the Florida
Region/UJA. Joel Reinstein
was appointed to the Florida
Region/UJA Cabinet and Mar-
tin Lipnack was appointed as
chairman of the North
Broward State of Israel
Bonds. Leonard Farber is
elected chairman of the
Brandeis University Board
and three leading women of
our community, Alvera Gold,
Deborah Hahn and Barbara
Wiener were named to CJF's

Studies showed that Florida
had the largest population in-
crease of any U.S. state in
1986. Striving to meet the
needs of the increasing popula-
tion were the Jewish Com-
munity Center, which opened
a state-of-the-art aquatic
center, complete with an
olympic-size swimming pool.
The Hebrew Day School broke
ground on their new building,
which will contain an audio-
visual media center and top-
notch equipment to provide
the best possible education and
learning for its students. The
Jewish Family Service
relocated in '86 to the Federa-
tion building at 8358 W.

tures in March. On Sunday,

President of the Jewish
Education Service of North

tinental planning, coor-

Gift of Remainder Interest in Your Residence

Editor's Note: Another in a
service of the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies, Jacob
Brodzki, chairman.
There are many year-round
and seasonal residents of our
area who may be missing an
unusual opportunity whereby
they may spend many happy
years in their homes in South
Florida, while benefitting the
Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies and securing a cur-
rent income tax deduction.
By making a contribution of
a remainder interest in their
personal residence.
What u a charitable con-
tribution of a remainder in-
terest in a personal
A charitable deductible is
allowed for income estate and
gift tax purposes in a situation
where an individual makes a
gift of his personal residence
to the Foundation but retains
the right to live there for the
remainder of his life.
The term "personal
residence," for this purpose, is
defined as any property used
by the taxpayer as his personal
residence even though it is not
used as his principal residence.
For example, a vacation home
that is used as a personal
residence will qualify. Further-
more, stock owned by a
tenant-stockholder in a
cooperative housing corpora-
tion will also qualify if the unit
occupied is used as the
stockholder's personal
residence. However, no deduc-
tion will be allowed for any
portion of the value of fur-
nishings or other personal pro-
perty on the premises.
If the idea is beginning to ap-
peal to you, then you should
also note that provisions may
be made for the use of the
residence during the life of
another individual (for exam-
ple, your spous- or for a
specific number of years. You
may also obtain a similar
deduction for a remainder in-
terest in a farm.
How does the donor benefit?
Although you have retained
the right to live in the
residence for your lifetime,
you are entitled to a current
charitable deduction for the
present value of the remainder
interest (i.e., the value of the
Foundation's right to receive
the property upon your death
or, for example, upon the
death of both you and your
spouse). Thus, you obtain an
immediate tax savings at the
cost of knowing that your
home will eventually belong to
the Foundation
How do you calculate the
value of a gift of a remainder
interest in a personal
The calculation of a deduc-
tion for the remainder interest
in a personal residence is
rather complicated, but
carefully detailed in the Inter-
nal Revenue Regulations. Suf-
fice it to say that your accoun-
tant or attorney will need to
calculate the present value to
the Foundation of its right to
receive your home a number of
years from now. For simplici-
ty, a technical explanation has
been omitted; you should con-
sult your tax advisor for more
detailed information.
In 1987, Mr. Cohen, who is
62, donates to the Foundation
a remainder interest in a per-
sonal residence he purchased
several years ago subject to his
right to live there for the rest
of his life. At the time of the
gift, the land and house are ap-
praised at values of $21,000
and $75,000, respectively, and
the house has an estimated
useful life of 45 years, at the
end of which time it is ex-
pected, to be worth $15,000.
There is no mortgage on the
property. Based on these
facts, the value of the re-
mainder interest in the proper-
ty for which Mr. Cohen obtains
a charitable deduction is ap-
proximately $42,000.
It is important to remember
that this method of making a
contribution to the Foundation
places constraints on your
ability to dispose of the proper-
ty. However, for those donors
in the appropriate cir-
cumstances, the contribution
of a remainder interest in their
personal residence may pro-
vide them with another oppor-
tunity to both benefit the
Foundation and obtain signifi-
cant immediate tax benefits.
As always, we urge you to
meet with your tax advisor in
order to evaluate this method
of contribution in light of your
particular situation.

now entered its final stages
and chairmen Lou Colker and

that the committee will con-

have not as yet made a pledge
to the current drive.
"We still have a goodly
number of outstanding pledges
to bring in before the cam-
paign is over and our small
committee is beginning to
make contact with those con-
tributors who have not as yet
been reached. The campaign in
Woodmont now stands at over
$400,000 but we still have a
long way to reach our goal. We
are pleased with the results
thus far and we feel that many
more pledges will be brought
in by our hard-working com-
mittee," the chairmen stated.

uses only the finest ingredients: rich, ripe tomatoes,

only delicious, it's also 95% fat-free, contains complex
carbohydrates and has no preservatives

Hilda Leibo
The Statue of Liberty was
also a new-comer to New York
harbor when one of our leading
volunteers for the Women's
Division, Hilda Leibo's mater-
nal grandparents brought
their family to the East Side of
New York. It was just before
the turn of the century, Hilda
Leibo's mother was five- years
old and then the oldest of five
children. Eventually, they had
12. Grandmother said it was
the most horrible journey one
could imagine. They came
from Odessa in Russia with no
money and no language. In
those days there was no
HIAS* (Hebrew Immigrant
Aid Society), nor anyone to
welcome or help Jews. The
memory of one day when the
family was fortunate enough
to have hot fresh rolls as pay-
ment for grandfather's labor
remains vivid. Years later this
same grandfather would own
five bakeries on New York's
East Side. As a prosperous
baker he wore striped pants,
morning coat and a high hat to
go to synagogue every Satur-
day. After services, he gave
bags of nuts to the grand-
children and handed each one a
salt shaker. Hilda and her
cousins salted the nuts for
Shabbos eating as many as
they could. Grandma cooked
all week and kept things cool
on the fire escape or in a tiny
ice-box to be ready for the
Shabbos meal. They learned to
become Americans.
The first medical intern in
Newark's Beth Israel Hospital
was another young man who
came to this country from
Russia as a five-year-old. He
was Hilda's father. They must
have been a most unusual
family since his older sister
was tne first Vice-President of
Beth Israel Hospital. In the
early 1900s a woman vice-
president of a major hospital
was almost unthinkable.
Hilda's father graduated
Bellevue Medical School in
1908. They held a special
celebration in 1958, 50 years
later, when her son graduated
from the same school of
Shortly after Hilda's parents
married and moved to
Newark, they purchased two
seats to the Metropolitan
Opera. Through three genera-
tions of music lovers and more
than 70 years, those opera
seats remained in use by the
family. This love of music
helped Hilda to become an ex-
cellent pianist, studying at the
world famous Juillard School
of Music. It was during these
years that Hilda credits her
mother with teaching her the
importance and techniques of
During the 1940's Hilda was
a very active volunteer for
UJA. In 1951, when she was a
UJA chairman, she received a
call from the newly established
Israel Bond office in Newark,
New Jersey, inviting her to
become their first Women's
Division professional. With
grown children and an at-
torney husband there was now
time to take on a more profes-
sional responsibility. So began
Hilda Leibo's 22 years as a
professional with Israel Bonds.
For three years she headed
their Women's Division, then
moved on to become the Ex-
ecutive Director of the city of
Newark's Israel Bond offices.
The only woman, at that time,
serving in such a capacity in
the ten big cities of the United
States, she attended many
meetings in which the speaker
said, "Gentlemen and
Lady ..." This was a position
she held for 10 years until
moving to New York where
she became the National Direc-
tor of Women's Division of
Israel Bonds.
As National Director, Hilda
made many trips to Israel and
Europe on behalf of Bonds. It
was then she brought to this
country the first commercial
Israeli fashion show, which
toured the entire United
States and Canada. She work-
ed directly with the company
for fairs and exhibitions, and
top Israeli designers, to pick
out the clothes to be modeled
in the shows. As National
Director she shopped with
Leah Rabin, socialized with
Vera and Isaac Stern and was
entertained by Victor Borge.
Since Israel Bonds pins were
designed by some of the
world's leading Jewish artists,
Hilda was able to meet and
become friends with such
famous artists as Jacques Lip-
shitz and Chaim Gross. Others
she met as speakers.
Ruth Dayan, the founder of
"Maslrit" and first wife of
Moshe Dayan, became a
special friend. Hilda was in-
vited to attend the double wed-
ding of their children. It was
held amidst the archeology col-
lection on the lawn of the
Dayan home in Jerusalem.
Moshe Dayan's son and his
bride were married in an or-
thodox ceremony, with all the
expected ritual and ceremony.
At the same time, under a
separate Chupa, daughter
Yael, and her new husband in
army uniform, were married
by an army rabbi. All of the
neighbors were invited to
share in the celebration along
with Dayan relatives, family
friends, several Arabs, and
every prominent government
official. What could be more
When speaking of her trip to
Poland and Israel last year,
Hilda takes on a different
note. She says, "I would not
have missed it for the world. I
looked at those pictures
displayed at the museum in
Auschwitz .. there was not
one Jewish name or face.
When we got to the room with
all of the valises ... every one
was Jewish. We went to
Birkenow and saw the extent
of the place .. you couldn't
see the end ... it went on for
miles We saw how they
slept .. one on top of the
other. And that latrine ... and
the lake, with the bones .. .
where we lit the candles. We
lived through the times, we
heard all the horror stories, we
saw all the pictures but until
you actually are there you
can't fully believe the extent of
it. Every Jew should have that
experience. But then we went
to Israel. No matter what they
have ... all kinds of troubles,
all kinds of hardships ..
every time you go it's more
built up, its more beautiful.
How do they do it? I cannot
understand how they built the
kind of country they have
there. Everything pointed to
failure, but Israel is
Hilda has brought a new con-
cept in fund-raising to
Women's Division in Greater
Fort Lauderdale. It is called
"Play-a-Day for UJA." In this
community of sunshine, we
have many women who love to
play golf and tennis, in addi-
tion to their other activities.
Last year, the three clubs who
participated were Inverrary,
Palm-Aire and Woodmont.
These three separate golf tour-
naments and two tennis events
were very well received and
very successful. The prizes
were beautiful, the luncheons
were delicious, the weather
cooperated and money was
raised all while having a ter-
rific time. This year several
other areas have asked to join
Play-a-Day. They include
Woodlands, Bonaventure, Cor-
al Springs, and Plantation. In
addition to golf and tennis,
there are plans to include a
possible 'aerobithon' and
duplicate bridge tournament.
An enthusiastic and energetic
committee is being formed to
implement some wonderful
new ideas for the coming
We are so fortunate to have
an experienced campaigner
like Hilda Liebo on our board,
for as she says, "I think fund-
raising is in my blood. My
mother was a fund-raiser and
my grandmother was on the
board of the Hebrew Home for
the Aged. We learned fund-
raising at home. It's part of be-
ing Jewish."

Wynmoor Nears UJA Goal
After Successful Brunch
Polynesian Gardens Shows Support
for UJA at March 15 Breakfast
The Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal

is going so well, that the com-
munity is nearing its $200,000
goal. That is according to
chairman Julius Wind.
"Thus far, we have raised
approximately $163,000 for
the '87 UJA campaign," Wind
stated. "We have projected a
$200,000 goal. I am so proud of
my fellow campaign
volunteers as well as my
neighbors for answering the
call to help other Jews in
Wind added that there is still
much more work to be done to
achieve the goal.
"With the success of our
UJA brunch held at Crystal
Lake Country Club, our cam-
paign is moving right along.
However, we must not become
complacent. We have much
more work to be done."
The Wynmoor campaign is
running almost 20 percent
ahead of last year, at this time.

In Report
on Cult
in Israel
interministerial committee
examining the activities of
cults in Israel has submitted
a 500-page report to Educa-
tion Minister Yitzhak Navon
urging a tough policy to
crack down on the various
sects it investigated.
The report maintained that the
religious-mystical cults posed a
Friday, February 27, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 17
serious threat to Israeli society
and said the leaders of the various
groups were enriching
themselves. The committee chair-
man, Likud MK Miriam Glazer-
Taasa, told an Israel Radio inter-
viewer that membership in the
sects was "a form of dependence,
bondage, self-enslavement and
sometimes the handing over of an
individual's property to the
leaders who are soul-traders and
abuse our laws."
The interministerial committee
was established in 1982 by then
Education Minister Zevulun Ham-
mer of the National Religious Par-
ty. It investiaged 10 groups, in-
cluding Scientology, EST,
Transcendental Meditation, the
Unity Church, the Divine Light
Mission, and Hare Krishna. The
Unity Church members are known
as "Moonies" after their founder,
the Korean businessman Rev. Sun
Yung Moon.
A statement issued by the
Education Ministry after receipt
of the report said: "The inter-
departmental committee which
looked into the issue of new sects
operating in Israel warns against
the emergence of a deliberate
severance between the individual
and society in some of the groups,
both as a result of physical isola-
tion and psychological and com-
munication methods."
that such rifts between individual
and society "can significantly af-
fect the individual's judgement.

harmful to this country's genuine

moral and pragmatic for Israel to
encourage an end to the Gulf war,
not merely because of the terrible
loss of hie, but because Iraq is
becoming increasingly stronger

It is divided into two sections, a
public portion which contains no
names but enumerates case
studies, and a private section
which names persons against
whom there may be grounds for
action. The Commission examined
about 30 cases in detail and came
up with approximately 12
suspects against whom there is
serious evidence.
DURING ITS nearly two years
of investigation, the Commission
did not have an opportunity to
gather evidence in Eastern Euro-

fear that the public portion of the

Criminal Code be amended to per-

was supported by all sides at

following the divorce. Efforts
should be made to clarify or
correct the child's feelings that
they are to blame for the
divorce and the ultimate fami-
ly reorganization. Emotional
support for the child should be
augmented temporarily by a
source outside the home while
the parent is attempting to
gain control over the new cir-
cumstances which they face.
Given the increasing number
of children who are being im-
pacted by the rising divorce
rate, there is a continuing need
for practitioners to respond.
We, at Jewish Family Service
of Broward County, offer in-
dividual, family and group
counseling for the children of
divorce, as well as their
parents. For more informa-

Arthritis wears away at body
and mind like water on a stone.
Incessantly. Day in and day out.
But although its progress
cant be stopped, it can be slowed.
Even when joints have become
too weak and too painful to be
relieved with therapy and medica-
tion alone.
The old joints can be replaced
with new. And the stiffness and
discomfort replaced with improved
mobility and independence.
At AMI North Ridge Medical
Center, our surgeons can rebuild
your hip or knee or shoulder. And
after your surgery, a specially
trained physical therapist will help
you regain movement and expand
your range of motion with an indi-
vidual rehabilitation program
Well show you how to live
better with arthritis. How to
increase your independence and
mobility. And how to protect your
body from further discomfort.
If you'd like to learn more
about joint replacement, talk
with your doctor or call us in
Broward at 776-6000, ext. 4070.
Or 1-800-523-2561, toll-free.
And if you don't already

find one.

Temple Beth Am, Margate
In the lives of many people,
there is a story, an anecdote or
an event which seems to have
been a turning point or a mo-
ment of awareness, which af-
fected the personality or the
outlook of an individual for the
rest of their lives.
There is the famous story of
Martin Buber that tells of now
a disturbed student sought
permission to see him. Buber
turned him down because he
was too busy. The student, ac-
cording to the story, went
home and killed himself.
Later, upon hearing this and
realizing that he had turned
the student aside because he
was busy working on other
things, Buber began to rethink
his attitude and actually came
out with what was his great
work on the concept of the "I-
Thou" relationship.
As an undergraduate in
Canada, I remember having an
experience which also has af-
fected me. I was senior in
university, working on a major
paper in the social science
field. The subject was the
Jewish contribution to the
Canadian State. As it happen-
ed, a local congregational rab-
bi was doing research on a
book in a similar field, and I
called to ask to meet with him,
and perhaps discuss the issue
and share some notes. I never
got past his secretary; she
guarded him tenaciously. She
could not, or would not put
through my messages, for he
never returned my call. For
years I was resentful of him,
and the type of rabbi that he
represented to me, and swore
that if I ever became a rabbi, I
would always return my calls.
It's ironic that years later,
we shared a trip in a car up to
the Catekills for a rabbinical
convention. Now we were two
colleagues. I discussed the
situation with him, and found
out that it was at a time when
he was recovering from a
heart attack and his secretary
thought she was doing him a
favor by screening his calls.

most of the congregations in

percentage, perhaps as low as
ten percent of the Jewish com-

already; they've supported
synagogues in the past; they
don't want to become involved;
they simply don't want to help
carry their weight with the
synagogues in their communi-
ty. Yet they never have the
same hesitancy when the need
arises for a rabbi. A day does
not pass that any number of
non-members call with ques-
tions. Questions of Jewish law,
pertaining to: grandchildren
having a bris or a pidyon
haben; questions pertaining to
intermarriage or conversion
for grandchildren; requests for
officiating at funerals or
unveilings; but the most
disturbing of all is to be called
from families of terminally ill
patients, who have sent out
the word that they want to see
a rabbi, or they want counsel-
ing. They want to make peace
with their Maker, througn the
one they perceive to be "His
agent" here on earth.
There are only so many
hours in a day; there are only
so many people that one can
tend to. How many messages
can we return; now many
visits can we make? At the end
of a long day, with a pile of
pink slips, each representing a
call that needs to be returned,
a voice inside of me rises and
says: "Only call back the
members." And then a louder
voice speaks out and says,
"Remember when you were a
university studnt. Remember
when you called and no one
But is that voice fair? Is it
not fair to expect that more of
the members of our communi-
ty will assume their rightful
obligation and affiliate? Should
they not support congrega-
tions and support clergy?
There should be 10 or 15 more
synagogues in our community,
each with a full-time rabbi,
each serving the needs of the
This coming Sabbath is call-
ed Shabbat Shekalim, the Sab-
bath of the shekel. In a special
maftir, we will read about how
Jews gave a half-shekel for
each male adult. It was partly
a census, but it was also a way
of having every family con-
tribute a fixed amount so that
there would be a collective sum
of money to purchase the
sacrifices for the daily offer-
ings in the temple. We are told
that the rich and the poor were
to give the same towards this
one area because everyone in
the community would feel an
equal share in the sacrifices be-
ing offered in the temple.
Everyone had an equal respon-
sibility. Even the poor and
destitute had to come up with
a half-shekel because the com-
munity had a shared
We have no temple today,
though we have many
synagogues. And whether you
choose to be active or passive,
whether you attend regularly,
occasionally, or rarely, you are
a part of this whole community
and you have an obligation to
affiliate, to be supportive of a
congregation which in turn is
supportive of its clergy.
I come from the city of
Toronto, where the affiliation
rates are much higher. When I
meet a fellow Torontonian
here in Florida and we talk for
a minute or two, invariably the
question is "and which shul do
you belong to?" It helps iden-
tify, it's part and parcel of
what you are. In northwest
Broward, we can't yet make
that kind of assumption or ask
that kind of a question.
Perhaps that explains why
we're such an amorphous enti-
ty and not a community.
Perhaps when metaphorically,
everyone has paid their half-
shekel, when everyone has af-
filiated, when everyone has a
synagogue to hang their hat
on, we will have arrived as a
real Jewish community. We
can only pray that it will be
sooner rather than later.

Still No
Word Of
Relatives of Iosif Begun in
Moscow still had no word on
his rumored release when
contacted Monday after-
noon, the Student Struggle
for Soviet Jewry reported
Chaim and Zelda Tepper,
-cousins of Begun's in New York,
who spoke with Begun's wife Inna
m Moscow Monday, said they
received the following message
from Inna:
Bad news from the penal of-
ficials. There is no statement
about Iosef s liberation, not at the
Ministry of Internal Affairs, not
in Chistopol prison (where Begun
is imprisoned). He is still in
Chistopol. Mr. Arbatov told a lie.
My husband has not been released
and they are not going to liberate
him. I have this from the chief
reception desk on the Ministry of
Internal Affairs."
Central Committee member, said
Sunday on CBS's "Face the Na-
tion" that Begun had been freed.
The announcement followed a
week-long demonstration in
Moscow by Begun's family and
friends to rally for his release.
Jacob Birnbaum, director of the
Center for Russian Jewry and of
SSSJ, said the announcement was
probably intended to diffuse an
"enormously embarrassing situa-
tion" for Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev. The demonstrations in
Moscow on behalf of Begun ended
in violence and coincided with an
international peace conference
called by Gorbachev in Moscow.
The announcement of Begun's
release may have been simply a
propaganda ploy to ease criticism,
Birnbaum said. But it is also possi-
ble that Gorbachev gave Arbatov
the information on the release
which has not yet trickled to the
lower echelons of the prison
system or the Internal Affairs
Ministry. Begun's son Boris was
scheduled to begin a 15-day prison
sentence Monday for heading up
last week's demonstrations, SSSJ
