'The Diary of Anne Frank's Granddaughter'
AmBaacM.Garder
By DEBORAH
FULLER HAHN
I am Anne Frank's
granddaughter. I knew
you don't believe me.
but it's true. At least I
feel I am her grand-
daughter. This is now it
happened...
My actual grand-
mother, Sarah
Finkelsztajn Katz (I call
her Bubbie), was born in
Poland the same year as
Anne. They were both
taken to Auschwitz by
the Nazis and ended up
in the same camp.
Sarah, Anne and Anne s
sister, Margot, were
together in that awful
place. Bubbie Sarah has
recounted Anne's
stories to me, as far
back as I can remember.
The funny thing is she
hardly ever told my
mother anything about
life in the camps. It's
like I was supposed to be
Anne's granddaughter.
Now I have all her
memories. Did you know
she was almost 16 when
she died, just my age?
In Birkeneav, the
three of them stayed as
close together as they
could. They always used
to whisper their private
thoughts and dreams to
each other. When Anne
and Margot both got
sick with typhus, Sarah
thought she would catch
it also. I guess she was
fortunate. She weighed
less than 70 lbs then, but
she probably had an ex-
tra will to survive.
Anyway, before Anne
died they swore to each
other, that if Sarah lived
to have a granddaughter
the baby would be called
"Annehese," That was
Anne Frank's correct
name. So my full name is
Anneliese Margot
Gardener ... everyone
calls me Annie. Can you
understand why I feel
like I am a grand-
daughter of Anne
Frank? Sometimes Bub-
bie and Zayde would tell
me stories that used to
scare me, especially
when I was real little. I
know they didn't mean

have raised more money than
Fort Lauderdale's Federation.
"This is indeed a figure we
can all be proud of and for the
tireless work and commitment
of the tens of thousands of
generous contributors and
supporters," said Polish. "But
now is the time we must all
come to grips with the cam-
paign's final weeks ap-
proaching. In the next few
days, we have the big task
ahead of us to raise the dollars
to push us over the top. The
real work now begins and
together we must strive to
achieve the funds necessary to
strengthen and heighten the
quality of life for the people of
Israel, throughout the world,
and continue to build a
bulwark of services here at
home," he said.
A special appeal was made to
take part in the upcoming cam-
paign "Super Week," March
16-22, where meetings, rallies
and events were being held to
finalize the Jewish com-
munities' major philanthropic
campaign. Of particular impor-
tance was the announcement
of the two "Super Sunday"
phon-a-thons to be held, in-
cluding the Oceanside, March
15, Drexel, Burnham,
Lambert, One Financial Plaza,
Fort Lauderdale, and March
22 at Tamarac Jewish Center,
9101 NW 57th Street,
Tamarac. He urged everyone
to give two hours of their time
and join friends and neighbors
in helping to ensure their
strong partnership with fellow
Jews worldwide and sustain-
ing tens of thousands of
Jewish men, women and
children in need.

How Riverside
Earned Its Reputation.
In the Jewish community a
funeral home is judged by its service.
And that service must always meet
the high standards of Jewish
tradition.
At Riverside, our dedication
to service has been proven day in and
day out, year after year, for over six
decades. This commitment
began with people such as
Charles Rosenthal and
Carl Crossberg. Today
that commitment to
service continues
under the leadership
of Kenneth J.
Lassman and a
new generation
of Riverside
managers.
For more than sixty years,
caring people have worked to en-
hance the Riverside reputation. And
that's how Riverside became the most
respected name in Jewish funeral
service in the world.

A Day in Israel
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
HAIFA People are bustling about the soot-stained, >
drab gray concrete columns of the Haifa bus station, which
sits at the base of this port city of hills in northern Israel.
The familiar red and white Egged busses are everywhere.
Young people, most, it seems, in green army fatigues
crowd the station. Many tote the omnipresent Uzi machine
guns, which they carry with the same indifference that we
give to an umbrella. Near at hand are two men standing
behind a small card table on which are placed te fill in. They
encourage passersby to put them on and participate in the
ancient Jewish rite of laying tefillin. It is Friday morning,
shabbat is quickly approaching, and the general mood
seems light. This is my weekend "furlough" during my
tour of duty as a Volunteer for Israel, stationed at a
military base about 30 minutes from Haifa. I am awaiting
for the bus that will take me to Tel Aviv and a weekend
visit with Steve and Linda Baron, former residents of
Atlanta, who made aliyah with their two daughters. Steve
and Linda were both very active members of the communi-
Sf, but my first contact with Steve was when he became my
entist.
The bus fills quickly. Soon we are off down the Haifa
highway to Tel Aviv, only about 90 minutes away in this
country where no two points seem far from one another.
Off to the right are the sparkling blue waters of the
Mediterranean. To the left sitting on gently rolling hills is
Haifa and later other towns and villages. As we head south,
I cannot help but be fascinated at the many white-washed
towns, the many factories, and the many fields under
cultivation that we pass. So much is here in a state that is
just entering its middle years.
The bus driver in casual attire, an Israeli custom, has the
radio playing, and popular Israeli tunes, everynow and
then sprinkled with an American song, filter throughout
the bus.
As we near the northern outskirts of Tel Aviv, the
number of white stucco apartment buildings and businesses
increase. To the right is a sprawling Digital edifice, which
Steve later informs me is the site of Israel's growing
technological center. I mildly panic as I realize that I have
missed my stop. I try to get my bearings from the bus
driver, who responds in broken English. It is very rare to
find an Israeli who does not know some English. He in-
forms me that I have to cross this highway with its cons-
tant stream of traffic and catch a bus northbound, the
direction from which I just came. Approaching the first
person I see, I ask for directions. She turns out to be a high
school student from New York, whose family has made
aliyah, and she just happens to be waiting for the bus I
need. She also coincidentally lives about a block from Steve
and Linda in Herzliva, a suburb of Tel Aviv. She directs me
down the tree-lined street to their home, which is in walk-
ing distance of the Mediterranean. The town is the home of
many residences of foreign ambassadors.
A little later Amy and Marvin Singer, who have also
made aliyah, arrive to spend the night. They are living in
Jerusalem, which is about an hour away. A native
Clevelander, Jack Heller, who goes under the name of
Yaacov and is a popular sculpturer in Israel, and his wife, a
sabra, also arrive. It is shabbat, but Tel Aviv is a secular ci-
ty. We go out to dinner, and shrimp and pork are two of the
main items on the menu. Afterwards it is off to the Tel
Aviv Hilton where one goes to see and be seen. The lounge
is heavy with smoke, for Israelis are notorious smokers.
The evening is capped with the Hilton's special ice cream
treats. Israel is truly a country of contrasts and
contradictions.

The streets abound with
children dressed up in costume
finery, teenagers in silly out-
fits and adults armed with oh-

used to "bonk" any unsuspec-
ting target. Carnivals, parties
and masked balls, drinking,

sweets and other homemade
goodies adding personal cheer

The Purim Story
During the festival of Purim all Jews are> enioined to
make merry, as it it written m the Scroll of Esther, .
there was gladness and joy among the Jews, a feast and a
holiday." The Jews were expected to divert_ themselves of
their daily cares and get so inebriated that they could not
distinguish between the 'cursed E*man and the blessed
Mordehai' ": after all, how else could they be joyful if they
were constantly reminded of their poverty their^lack of
worldly goods and their exile from the Holy Land?
The Talmud tells of two wise men of Babylon who duly
become intoxicated at Purim. When tiiey were in their
cups one of them, Raba, killed Zeira, the other. After his
drunkenness wore off and Raba saw what he had done, he
was shocked to the core. The legend describes how he begg-
ed and pleaded to the Almighty who raised Zeira up from
the dead A year later Raba again invited Zeira to partake
of the Purim feast but the latter demurred: "A miracle
does not happen every day!"
Over the generations, the siges encouraged high spirits,
revelry and intoxication because, it was said, miracles oc-
curred when "the goodness of the King's heart was in his
wine." It was when drunk that King Ahasuerus demanded
of Queen Vashti that she display her charms andgraces to
his ministers, but Vashti refused and in doing forfeited the
crown. In his besottedness, Ahasuerus then made Esther
queen. The story of Purim and the downfall of the wicked
Haman the Agagite devolved under the influence of drink,
which gives wine its important role in the Purim
celebrations.
Great weight is attached to the reading of the Scroll of
Esther on the eve of Purim and the day itself. The scroll
has historical and secular significance but contains no par-
ticular mystic or religious element. The dramatic plot un-
folds in Shushan, the capital of Ahasuerus' kingdom, with
all the events taking place outside Eretz Israel. It is thus an
exilic text which somehow found its place in the Bible even
though neither the name of God nor the Holy Land is men-
tioned. It is interesting to note that the story of the Mac-
cabees who purified the Temple and whose deeds are com-
memorated at Hanukka is not included in the Bible itself.
The scroll of Esther led to controversy amongst the com-
pilers of the holy works, some of whom insisted that it be
suppressed because of its emphasis on Jews becoming
drunk and raising their hand against their enemies; they
objected to a festival based on revenge and bloodshed. We
do not know if the Scroll was originally written in Hebrew
or Persian, or even in another language such as Greek, and
was subsequently translated and included in the Bible;
there are conflicting opinions as to when and where the
book was composed.
An important conclusion to be drawn from the Scroll is
that "all Jews are responsible one for each other," and no
Jew can opt out of his individual responsibility in time of
trouble. As Mordehai warned Esther when the Jews of
Shushan were threatened, "Think not that in the King's
palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews.
For if you keep silence at such a time as this, relief and
deliverance will not rise for the Jews from another
quarter."
A special luncheon was held for the volunteers of the Federation's
elderly programs thanking them for countless hours of dedicated
service.

leader will serve as chairman
of the Federation's Long
Range Planning Committee
and was just recently selected
as chairman of Special Gifts
for the National U J A Region 5
area serving the State of
Florida.
According to Brian J. Sherr,
Federation president, "Harold
has been an important and
distinctive member of the
North Broward County Jewish
community since becoming a
part of the Federation family.
His role as a key member of
the Woodlands Division and
board member has played an
integral part in achieving the
success of our Jewish com-
munities' major philanthropy.
What better man to serve m
the future planning status of
our central organization. And
his efforts have not gone un-
noticed, having been recogniz-
ed for his dedication and com-
mitment by the Regional
leadership who have named
Harold Oshry
him to the new prestigious
campaign position.'
Oshry, first came to South
Florida a number of years ago
having already made his
presence known in North
Broward while a 'snowbird."
In his home of New York City,
he worked for 30 years as a
leader of the Greater New
York UJA-Federation cam-
paign cabinet, chair of the
Auto Industry, where he was
honored for his tireless work,
the Queens Industrial Division
and the South Shore
Committee.
Since becoming a permanent
resident in 1981, his participa-
tion in Federation/UJA has
been extraordinary, having
been Woodlands Division chair
and honoree, Federation board
and executive board member
and campaign cabinet leader.
A trustee of the Tamarac
Jewish Center, he has been in-
strumental in countless civic
and philanthropic endeavors,
among them, Ben Gurion
University, ADL and B'nai
B'rith.
A 'Captain of Industry,'
Oshry rose up the ladder of
success from automobile
salesman to founder and chief
executive officer of Sandgate
Corporation, originally
AllState Leasing, with offices
throughout the U.S. He is cur-
rently the chairman of Univer-
sal Ford of New York of which
his son, Michael, is president.
Both he and his wife, Claire,
have opened their home for a
number of campaign and com-
munity functions and she is a
campaign co-chair in the
Federation Women's Division.

Sol Schulman
In one of the most important
programs in the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, Tamarac's Sol
Schulman has vowed to bring
about a cost effective, cost effi-
cient operation for the Jewish
community's central
organization.
Sol, the newly named
Federation's Administrative
Committee chairman, recently
told the board of directors
that, "My hard-working group
of members are currently put-
ting together the pieces to br-
ing about a solid operational
budget to continue the vital
work accomplished by the
Federation, its agencies and
beneficiaries and the United

Vitally concerned with the
future of both young and old
alike in North Broward Coun-
ty, the board of trustees of the
Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale continue to make substan-
tial funds available for the con-
tinued growth and develop-
ment of local agencies and
faculties.
At a recent meeting held at
the Fort Lauderdale offices of
Judah Ever, a partner in the
firm of Oppenheim, Appel,
Dixon and Company, chairman
Foundation Tax Committee,
the Foundation presented a
check for $90,000 to the major

in support of the newly con-
structed building complex to
be completed for the next
school year on the Perlman
campus of the Soref Jewish
Community Center, 6501 W.

Brodzki emphasized that in
1986, the Foundation had
grown to great proportions
and reached new heights in the
area of funding, having achiev-
ed over $2,000,000 in donor

Declaration of Independence depended on his will and the defense
of Israel depended on his courage. Flanking Hertzberg are Rabbi
Howard Aadison of Temple Beth Israel, and. Helen Weisberg, ad-
ministrator of the North Broward Midrasha.

T"("iO)
Scroll of Esther
MOVE OVER
QUEEN ESTHER
The Holiday of Purim is ap-
proaching. In synagogues all
over the world "The Scroll of
Esther", also known as "The
Megilla", will be read. Tradi-
tionally, it is one of the few
times when women, as well as
men, are obliged to hear the
reading. Little Jewish girls
will be dressing up as Queen
Esther in many a Purim car-
nival. This heroine of our
history books is credited with
saving the entire Jewish
population of the ancient city
of Shushan in Persia, from
possible annihilation. We are
told that she interceded with
the king on behalf of her peo-
ple, in order to prevent a
massacre by the Viceroy,
Haman, hated enemy of the
Jews. Perhaps more thought
should be given to that other
queen, 'Vashti', first wife of
King Ahasuarus of Persia.
What really happened to her?
How many women today know
the reason she was so
precipitously replaced by King
Ahasuarus?
It is very clearly stated in
"The Scroll of Esther" that
the King became intoxicated
at a banquet and began
boasting to the other men
about his wife's beauty. When
he is challenged, and wants to
prove his claim, he orders the
queen to appear before the
assembly and: disrobe. Vashti
refuses, "... therefore was
the King very wroth, and his
anger burned in him" (Esther
1:2). His ministers advise him
to get rid of this insolent
woman. ".. that she come no
more before King Ahasuarus,
and that the king give her
royal estate unto another that
is better than she" (Esther
1:19). It is quite obvious that
'better' implies more obedient.
Ahasuarus accepts the advice
of the men of his court and has
the queen executed.
The king immediately
decides he wants another
woman, one who would be
more docile. He orders the
most beautiful virgins of the
land to be brought before him.
The one who pleases the
monarch will become queen.
As we all know, it is Esther,
"niece" of Mordecai, who is
chosen. Countless others
become concubines in his
household, there are various
scholars who believe that
Esther was actually the wife of
Mordecai. If this be the case,
we now have a married Jewess
who remains married all
through her stay in the palace
simultaneously living with
her gentile husband. Esther
probably should never have
been eligible for the queenship,
according to the rules laid
down by Ahasuarus'
chamberlains. She must have
been extraordinarily attractive
and extremely submissive to
win the favor of the ruler.
History portrays her as a pious
young girl with all of the vir-
tues that men find appealing.
She is beautiful, quiet, modest,
domestic, obedient, and
courageous (but only on behest
of the man she respects). In-
deed, she saves the Jews by
following the directions given
her by Mordecai. In fact, she
does not even tell the king that
she is Jewish until instructed
to do so. Queen Esther is cer-
tainly every man's ideal
woman. But is she every
woman's ideal? Perhaps not!
Mary Gendler in her essay,
"The Restoration of Vashti"
makes a strong case for the
first queen and points out the
prevailing double standard.
The Megilla refers to the 'ac-
ceptable' actions of Mordecai
who refuses to give homage to
Haman and is deemed "brave
and courageous" by the Rab-
bis. These same scribes, in
their commentaries, are not so
kind to Queen Vashti. After
she declines to appear naked in
front of the king's drinking
partners, she is considered 'de-
fiant.' Such disobedience is not
to be tolerated in women,
either by the rabbis who have
interpreted the saga of Purim
for us, or by King Ahasuarus
and his advisors.
Mordecai rejects the king's
order that all bow down in
front of Haman. Haman, in-
sulted, seeks to have not only
Mordecai punished, but the en-
tire Jewish nation. In Vashti's
case, retribution for her
'crime' seems to include, not
her own 'people', but all of the
female population of the
kingdom since a royal decree
stated "... all the wives will
give to their husbands honor,
both to great and small... and
that every man should bear
rule in his own house" (Esther
1:19). The rabbis concur with
this decree and attack Vashti's
character instead. Rav Shlomo
ben Yitzchok, the leading com-
mentator on the Bible and
Talmud who is well known as
'Rashi', agreed "... The law
should be permanent for all
women who ever show con-
tempt for their husbands"
(The Book of Esther, ed. Rabbi
Meir Zlotowitz).
Apparently, to justify the
killing of Queen Vashti, even
though he must have agreed
that she ought not to have ap-
peared unclothed in public, the
Vilna Gaon claims it "paved
the way for Esther and the
ultimate miracle." The Vilna
Gaon was undoubtedly a
brilliant scholar and one of the
greatest spiritual leaders of
Jewry. Can one dare to ques-
tion his conclusions? Since the
king obviously does not like
assertive women, Queen
Esther remains loved and
loveable by being modest and
beautiful and approaching her
husband obliquely. She wines
and dines him before she
makes her request for amnesty
for the Jewish people. There is
no doubt that Esther perform-
ed a great service for her peo-
ple. But let us take note that,
on closer examination, Vashti
not only performed a great
service for all women, but has
never been properly
acknowledged.
Mary Gendler points out the
parallels between the tale of
Vashti and that of Lilith. Ac-
cording to legend, Lilith was
Adam's.first wife, created like
him, out of the dust of the
earth. She remained with him
only a short time because she
insisted upon enjoying full
equality with her husband.
When Lilith resists living a
submissive life with Adam, she
is punished. She is portrayed
in the legends as a demoness,
who snatches uncircumcised
male children from their cribs.
(Remember the story of the
red ribbon to ward off the 'evil
spirit'?) Forever condemned in
(male) Jewish literature Lilith
lives in eternal exile .. the
first woman who said no!
Vashti lost her crown and pro-
bably her head. Lilith lost her
home and was forced to
wander through eternity. Ms.
Gendler says, "The message is
clear. Behave yourself, don't
be assertive, don't be disobe-
dient; or you will be a social
outcast, you will lose your
home, children and happiness,
your good name and perhaps
even your life." Perhaps her
statement is too strong. Yet
we may be provoked into
rethinking old ideas.
In all of our history books,
Queen Esther is depicted as a
'Good Jewish Woman.' She
was a role model to many of us
as we grew up. It was she
alone, through her courage
and beauty, who saved the en-
tire Jewish people. Why were
we not taught that Vashti
should be respected for her
dignity, pride and in-
dependence? As twentieth cen-
tury women, we are certainly
able to identify with these vir-
tues. Mary Gendler proposes
that Vashti be reinstated on
the throne along with her
sister, Esther. She maintains,
"Women, combining the at-
tributes of these two
remarkable females beauty
softened by grace; pride
tempered by humility; in-
dependence checked by heart-
felt loyalties; courage and
dignity such women will be
much more whole than those
who seek only to emulate
Queen Esther.
That Lilith and Vashti are
within us is much too valuable
a concept to deny. It is time to
use all of the proficiency, in-
telligence and capabilities that
we have as women. It is only
then that we will achieve our
potential promise as complete
and fulfilled human beings.

Federation Dollars at Work: Alexander Muss High School in Israel
On 1972, just 15 years ago,
Rabbi Morris A. Kipper,
former rabbi of Temple Judea
in Coral Gables, and a group of
South Florida educators met
to organize a program that
would help Jewish teenagers
discover tneir roots as Jews
and forge their link to the
State of Israel.
Rabbi Kipper stumbled upon
the idea when, during his
teaching experience in Camp
Coleman, he found that
"youngsters get so wrapped
up in their studies that they
learn a lot more in a short
period of time in intensive
study than if they study that
topic over a long period of
time."
Thus the idea of High School
in Israel was born. With the
cooperation of the Ministry of
Education in Israel and the
Department of Education of
Tel Aviv University, a cur-
riculum was formulated to at-
tract 11th and 12th grade
students in the public and
private schools. The motiva-
tion of these teenagers to at-
tend is to improve their study
skills in preparation for college
level work and to provide them
with experiences that will
foster their Jewish identity.
The school is located on two
campuses, one in Hod
Ha'Sharon near Tel Aviv, and
the other in Hadassim near
Natanya.
There are five eight-week
sessions during the course of a
one-year period. The enrollees,
generally 200 American high
school students, participate in
what is probably the toughest
and most demanding learning
experience they have ever
known. With Jewish history as
the core subject, from Ancient
and Biblical times to the
modem era, the present State
of Israel in particular and the
Middle East area in general,
the course delves into and
develops the elements of
literature, archaeology, car-
tography, geography, com-
parative religion, philosophy
and political science.
The 48 class days are divided
into two halves. About 20 ses-
sions are spent on campus in
investigative work, reading,
discussing and writing essays
on the different periods of
Jewish history. The remainder
of the sessions are spent in the
field, visiting the various sites
where these historic events
took place and even acting out
the roles of the people they are
studying. All the work is done
in English.

Agency Focus
In order to keep up with
their home high school credits,
individual instruction is of-
fered in mathematics, science
and foreign language. Those
students taking these classes
bring their text books and
class plans along from
America.
The teaching staff is compos-
ed of American-trained
teachers with graduate
degrees in history, social
sciences and allied disciplines.
They are engaged five months
prior to taking on a full
teaching load. For two and one
half months they are crash-
trained by the curriculum and
staff supervisor. For the
following two and one half
months, they team-teach with
veteran teachers.
Although telephones and
televisions are not provided in
the dormitories, the social side
of high school life is not
neglected. Social get-
togethers with their Israeli
contemporaries are arranged.
They are also invited to spend
weekends in Israeli homes
thus providing them with an
insight into the lifestyle of
Israeli teenagers.
The following are quotes
from some of the students who
attended sessions of the High
School in Israel and their
parents:
From students:
"Through experiencing
history as the living account of
a people rather than a dry col-
lection of facts memorized, I
felt as if I were a participant of
history."
"I spent two months of my
senior year in the High School
in Israel program, living in a
college dormitory atmosphere,
studying 4,000 years of
history. The experience was
important because it gave me a
new perspective on history,
religion, group living, self-
reliance and friendship."
"It helped me budget my
time and gave me exposure to
a college-type atmosphere."
From parents:
"The junior and senior years
of high school are a time of
adolescent insecurity and tur-
moil. This program definitely
catalyzed their intellectual and
emotional growth."
"The academic demand
sharpened their ability to
organize and retain a large
body of knowledge in a short
period of time."

Continued from Page 1
to frighten me, but I
would dream about Nazi
soldiers coming to get
me if I wasn't good.
Zayde was in a place
called Mauthausen. He
said there was a cliff
there that the Nazi's us-
ed to kill Jewish
children. Thousands
were thrown over the
mountainside and died
... juat because they were
Jewish. He carried heavy rocks on
his back up and down the road
next to that precipice and saw
what happened.
Life has not been easy. I am go-
ing to be 16 years old in
September. I was born on Yom
Kippur .. only one of my pro-
blems. I wish it had been Purim, a
much happier time. My mother,
whose full name is 'Hope Marysia
Kate Gardener,' is their only child.
(Marysia was the name of Bub-
ble's mother. She was killed in the
Warsaw ghetto.) My grand-
parents had a hard time after they
were released from the Concen-
tration Camps by the Russian ar-
my. They made their way back to
their old home town, someplace
near Warsaw. It was terrible.
They said the Poles were more an-
tisemitic than either the Russians
or Germans. After a while they
left and traveled the
"underground railway."
Somehow they arrived in Munich,
Germany. That was where they
finally found a Rabbi who could
marry them. His name was
"Baruch," which means "Bless-
ing," and he had a trim white
beard and wore steel rimmed
glasses. By that time, Bubbie
Sarah was 19, she looked like 15.
Zayde Joe was almost 22 and he
says he didn't even shave yet I
guess they didn't have enough
food or vitamins to grow very
much. The Rabbi asked them to
show proof that they were old
enough to get married. They lived
and worked in Munich for about
two years, until my mom was
born. Of course, they didn't want
to raise a child in Germany so they
left for America. The family of
Josef Kaxinaki, of Poland, was
practically broke when they land-
ed in New York.
Sarah and Joe Katz did pretty
well in New York. He went into
the "Schmata" business. You
know, he made ladies dresses.
Nothing too fancy, to hear him tell
it, but enough so that they could
retire to Florida. His boas gave
him a big party and a beautiful
gold watch when he left, two
years ago.
My mother is another story. She
was a child of the sixties, if you
know what I mean, a 'flower
child.' Remember that famous
Rock concert they had at
Woodstock? That's where she met
my father, David Gardener. They
got married in Central Park, next
to the lake ... they had a Rabbi
and all, but it was sort of way out
anyway. The pictures are amaz-
ing. Bubbie and Zayde were not
too thrilled, you can tell. I
sometimes wonder what Anne
Frank would have thought... she
might have liked it. Anyway, right
after I was born ... he split. He
lives in Los Angeles now with his
third wife and three other kids. I
never see him. He doesn't even
send me a birthday card.
Let me tell you about my mom.
Basically, she's all right But
messed up. Hope used to 'abuse'
what the television programs call
'control substances. I guess part
of being a flower child was the en-
joyment of 'grass.' For years, I
saw it around the house, bice
anything else. I didn't even know
it was illegal... until I was about
ten. That was the year Bubbie and
Zayde took us on a trip to Israel.
Mom found out that her name was
'Tikva' in Hebrew. Even though
it's still officially 'Hope' she loves
to be called 'Tikva.'
Mom and I lived alone for years.
She was usually at work when I
came home from school, and real
tired when she got home. She
would get 'wasted' and I would fix
dinner. There were always her
boyfriends, of course, but they
came and went. I figured that was
normal, too. Mom gets depressed,
it's not as bad as it used to be.
Some days she wouldn't even get
out of bed. She was mad because
her boss always promoted the men
in her office before the women
and gave them raises in salary
also. She used to have this job in
an incredible advertising com-
pany. We really needed the
money, it wasn't coming from
anyplace else. As hard as she
worked, some man always got the
better accounts. No wonder she
got upset. She finally quit her job
and we came to Florida.
We have been living with Bub-
bie and Zayde for the last year.
Zayde said they live on a "fixed in-
come" and Mom should contribute
more. They fight about it a lot.
She wants to go out and have fun
... she says she's only 36 and
feels her life is over. She needs a
better job and her car keeps
breaking down. Bubbie just cries
and tells me stories about how
hard life used to be. If I wasn't
here maybe they wouldn't have so
many problems. My grandparents
would be able to socialize with
their own friends more. Mom
could afford to get her own apart-
ment and be free of having to
fight with anybody. Anyway, ex-
cept that I love them, I hate living
in this condo. It's all full of old
people. I have no friends and it's
harder to get around than when
we lived up north. If I want to go
to the beach they all yell about
"the bad element,' whatever that
is. The kids in my school are real
cliquey and nobody lives near me,
so I don't have much to do with
them. Sometimes I am so alone.
It's strange, even in Auschwitz,
Bubbie had Anne and Margot.
Everyone around here was driv-
ing everybody else crazy. About
four months ago, I decided what I
had to do. I wrote a very careful
letter telling them all that I really
love them, but they would be bet-
ter off without me. After all,
didn't Anne Frank make a con-
tribution to the world when she
died? Then I took a bottle of
Mom's sleeping pills and went
downstairs and made believe that
I was sleeping in the sun by the
pool. Some old lady thought I
didn't look right and she called my
grandmother. They had my
stomach pumped, Yukky! That
same lady advised Mom to call
Jewish Family Service. Mom told
them what had happened and
made an appointment for all of us
to go to their Fort Lauderdale of-
fice. We met with a really nice
case worker who has experience
in talking to Holocaust survivors
and their families. Boy, did I learn
a lot.
I guess the most important
thing I learned is that Annie is on-
ly Annie ... I can't be anyone
else. Mom wanted me to be her
best friend, she'd talk to me like
we were of the same generation.
My grandparents wanted me to be
the little girl who wrote 'the
diary.' Nobody seemed to care
what I wanted. Now they know
who I am and what I want We
met with the case worker quite
often those first few weeks. Now
we go at different times. Bubbie
and Zayde have made some new
friends at the Holocaust survivors
support group. Even Mom and I
have a group, mostly they are
families of survivors. The case
worker had me sign a contract
that I wouldn't try to kill myself
again. Zayde, Bubbie and Mom
had to agree not to fight about
who was going to tell me what to
do. They call it 'setting limits.' I
really think it's working. Nobody
blames anybody for stuff
anymore. We all need our own
space. Zayde is going to help us
get our own apartment.
Someplace where there will be
other kids my age. Jewish Family
Service really glued this family
back together again. I know they
help lots of other families all over
Broward County and we sure are
grateful.
I have come to the realization
that there must be a reason I
didn't die that day, next to the
swimming pool. After my grand-
mother, Sarah, survived the death
camps ... my mother, Hope, was
born. When Hope married David.
I was born. Anne Frank did not
survive. Maybe I lived, because
she couldn't. Maybe I am suppos-
ed to grow up... to be somebody.
Could I have a story to tell .
could my story mean something to
other people? Anne Frank wrote
her diary, in a secret annex, in an
attic in Holland. It became very
important to so many people. I
hope I have (at last) learned from
her how valuable each life can be.
I would like to think that someday
she could be proud of me ... as
proud as I am to carry on her
name.

Arthritis wears away at body
and mind like water on a stone.
Incessantly. Day in and day out
But although its progress
can't 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
have a physician, we'll help you
find one.
We can't yet offer a cure.
But we can offer help.

Promoting Tourism From the Pulpit
Friday, March 13, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 19
Editor'$ Note: Tamarac's
Rabbi Kurt Stone joined 150
colleagues to boost Israel
Tourism on the 2nd Annual
Tourism Mission, National
Rabbinic Cabinet for State of
Israel Bonds on Feb. 7-10.
By WENDY ELLIMAN
Rabbis are expected to lead
their congregants but not
usually across distances of
6,000 to 9,000 miles. Rabbi
Kurt Stone of Tamarac's
Tamarac Jewish Center,
however, is planning to do just
that.
He would like to lead as
many members of his
synagogue as he can on com-
munity tours to Israel, because
With Rhyme
and Reason
A Purim Story
In Tokyo one Purim Eve
A Mr. Benny Lewis
Visited a Synagogue
As a Jewish tourist.
The congregants and rabbi
were
Wholly Japanese,
But nonetheless he joined in
when
Then chanted melodies.
He liked their Purim services
So much that at the end
He went up to the rabbi and
Announced, "I am a friend.
I came here from America,
And I just want to say
That as a Jew I'm happy to
Be here with you and pray
I know The Book Of Esther
sure
As my name's Benny
Lewis."
"That's funny," said the rab-
bi, "You
Don't rook Jewish."
Jack Gould
he sees supporting Israel and
reinforcing ties between
Diaspora Jews and the Jewish
State as integral to the role of
a Jewish spiritual leader.
"For every Jew, an Israel
visit is a central event," he
said in Jerusalem. "For Israel,
tourism is the greatest source
of foreign revenue earning.
And in addition to both of
these, the encounter between
Diaspora and Israeli Jew in
Israel contributes to Jewish
unity."
Rabbi Kurt Stone joined
over a 150 leading Orthodox,
Conservative and Reform rab-
bis from the United States and
Canada mid-February, on the
State of Israel Bonds Second
Annual Tourism Mission to
Israel, sponsored by Israel's
Ministry of Tourism and El Al
Israel Airlines.
"The indispensable role of
the rabbi as inspirer and
motivator of the North
American Jewish community
shouldn't be underrated," says
Israel Bonds Rabbinic Cabinet
National Chairman, Rabbi
Stanley Davids of New York,
who led the delegation. "When
Israel tourism suffered a
downswing early last year, we
responded to an Israel govern-
ment request and held an
emergency rabbinic delegation
on tourism to Israel. By the
end of 1986, rabbis had helped
organize no fewer than 113
congregational visits."
The importance of the Rab-
binic Cabinet delegation was
underlined by the caliber of
people who received them. As
well as Tourism Minister
Avraham Sharir, who stressed
the importance of the role of
the rabbi as community leader
and Israel link, the rabbis met
with Israel's President Chaim
Herzog, Finance Minister
Moshe Nissim, Knesset
Member Yosef Burg, Yosef
Ben Aharon, Director General
of the Prime Minister's Office,
Dr. Yossi Beilin, Director
General of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs and Jerusalem
Mayor Teddy Kollek.
Minister Nissim told delega-
tion members of the vital con-
tribution of tourism to Israel's
economy, and President Her-
zog emphasized the safety of
the country to its residents
and visitors.
Mission Leader Rabbi
Stanley Davids received a
tangible symbol: a small
branch from an Israeli olive
tree. This was presented to
him by Mayor Teddy Kollek in
the 20th year of Jerusalem's
reunification.
"The three days really
brought home to me that we
have a duty to promote
tourism to Israel," said Rabbi
Kurt Stone, "and the role that
I can play. We learned a lot of
useful details such as hotels,
programming and how to
develop a tour logistically."
In addition to the practical,
however, delegation discus-
sions dealt with how a
synagogue tour led by a rabbi
can offer a different kind of
Israel experience. "North
American Jews want to enjoy
a sun, sea and sand holiday in
Israel like any other tourists,"
says Rabbi Kurt Stone, "but
many of them want more than
that. Israel, for them, is more
than just another country. It's
special, and they want access
to a special kind of experience
when they come here.
The Jewish sense of unity
with Israel is increasing,
believes Israel Bonds. It is one
of the reasons for the
organization's all-time Bond
annual sales record last year
a total of $603 million-$98
million more than in 1985.

Bonds International Chair-
man, David B. Hermelin of
Detroit, describes 1986 as "the
most productive Bond cam-
paign by far in the 35-year
history of our organization."
Rabbis in 1,100 North
American synagogues were
responsible for raising more
than a fifth of this year's total
including a record-breaking
$57 million in Bond sales dur-
ing the High Holy Days appeal
last fall.
The Rabbis were in Israel
not only to promote tourism,
but also for their annual Na-
tional Rabbinic Cabinet
meeting which discussed,
among other issues, the
reinvestment of $400 million in
Yom Kippur War Bends,
which mature this year.
For Rabbi Kurt Stone, there
is yet another reason why his
visit to Israel this February
was so important. "V'e let
Israelis see us Orthodox,
Conservative and Reform,
Ashkenazi and Sephardi rab-
bis, praying, learning and
celebrating together. People
too often get caught up in
negatives, but there's another
spirit here as well. That's what
we'll carry back with us: that
Jews must visit Israel not in
search of American values, but
because they're Jews."
