in 1986 wasn't the only

recently held Division dinner
dance, in support of the 1987
Jewish Federation/United

Division recorded an increase,
card for card, of over 108 per-
cent, a virtually unheard of
figure, until now.
"The members of the
Builders Committee and I are
so pleased with the results
from the dinner," stated
Richard Finkelstein, chair-
man. "Not only was the dinner
considered a financial success
for Federation/UJA, it was a
success for the over 120 who
attended who dined and danc-

The dinner was held at the
new Marriott Cypress Creek

Special guest speaker Dr.
Sabi Shabtai, an expert on ter-
rorism, discussed the fact that
many of the young people who
reside in Israel are leaving,
"not because they are afraid of
war or terrorists, he said, but
because the economy is so hor-
rendous. It is the young,
dynamic people that Israel
need, to boast its economy,"
Shabtai stated.
Another innovative idea
started out by the Division was
the 'under 30' committee, a
group of individuals who are
under 30 years of age, just

UJA Missions Celebrate Israel's
40th Anniversary Coming This Fall
Continued from Page 1-A
heartfelt generosity to help
Jews in need, in Israel and
in 34 other lands during the
past 20 years, the Jewish
Federation Board of Direc-
tors has extended an invita-
tion to stand up and be pro-
ud at the 20th Anniversary
Mission to Israel, Monday,
October 26 to November 5.
Fort Lauderdale ex-
ecutive Jacob Brodzki is
calling on North Broward
County men and women to
join him and take part in the
Community Mission helping
to celebrate the 20th An-
niversary of the Jewish
Community's central
organization. "From Pom-
pano Beach to East Fort
Lauderdale, more than 300
men and women strived for
the first Federation gifts to
help Israel as well as here at
home. Today 22 area com-
munities have united in a
network spanning from the
ocean to the Everglades and
from Griffin Road to
Broward/Palm Beach line in
an effort to make North
Broward County a vital and
functional community serv-
ing more than 185,000
residents. Twenty years
have meant ac-
achievements and heartfelt
results. Let's celebrate
them in Israel this fall," said
Brodzki indicated that
both the President's and the
20th Anniversary Mission
will join together to
celebrate Israel s 40th An-
niversary of Statehood.
"Federation/UJA Mis-
sions mean more than
touching Israel," said the
chairmen. They continued,
"When you go on Mount
Moriah, you gaze at the rock
where Abraham bound
Isaac; you walk the ground
where Solomon's Temple
stood; on Mount Sinai, you
visit the tomb of King
David; or Mount Carmel,
where the prophet Elijah
stood to challenge the 450
priests of Baal.' In Israel,
you don't find the Bible just
on bookshelves. It's all
around you. What better
time than now to see the
promised land, and at the
same time, see how all of
your generous gifts to UJA
have helped to fulfill the
promise for tens of
thousands of Jewish men,
women and children. These
Missions are possible and all
it takes is your time.

Heading this group were Leo
Ghitis and Steve Wasserman.
This 'under 30' group was well
represented at the dinner.
Of special significance was
the fact that families are now
growing and their next
generations are also taking the
responsibility for their Jewish
brethren in need. Many
members of the Waldman and
Levy families were at the din-
ner, thus perpetuating the
responsibility of tzedekan.
Special thanks are extended
to Susan Finkelstein and Mar-
jorie Lehrer who were respon-
sible for the wonderful dinner
arrangements and the
beautiful centerpieces, all ad-
ding up to a lovely ambience.
A successful function cannot
happen without the hard work
of a dedicated committee.

Super Events Raises '87 UJA To $6 Million
It was March madness when
'guys and gals' from North
Broward County answered the
call to complete the final
stages of the 1987 Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign.
Helping to answer the call
during the first Federation
"Super Week", March 16-22,
were hundreds of volunteers
who participated in the ex-
citing fun-filled and life-
enhancing events.
In a special report to the
Floridian, General chairman
Sheldon S. Polish announced
that Federation has raised to

Larry Litwin and Susan

$20,000 for the campaign.

on people than sites," he said.

also have a chance to meet the

He is not a government of-
ficial or an educator, but is a
public relations ambassador
who describes his work as
"avodat chodesh", holy work.
Each El Al plane load of
Americans returning from a
UJA Mission, he feels becomes
another bond between Israel
and the U.S.
To achieve his goals, Gerstel
tries to enable each person
who travels to Israel on a UJA
Mission to experience the
country differently than they
would be able to on their own.
"We provide tours of people-
of profession, so American
travelers have the chance to
spend time with their Israeli

Coming to Israel, stresses
Gerstel, is a good way for
American Jews to recharge
their Jewish batteries. In a
time when Americans are cut-

organizations, it is particularly
important to expose American
Jews to Israel, which is not a
country for Israelis, but for
Jews. "American Jews," he
continues, "are partners in
what is going on in Israel."

chair of Howard Horowitz,
couples pledged minimum gifts
of $260 at an evening which in-

and all.
And then came "Super Sun-
day", March 22, when phones
rang throughout Greater Fort
Lauderdale extolling the need
to make a commitment to the
Jewish community's major
philanthropy. Over 300
volunteers were telephoning
thousands of people in the
North Broward County area as
part of the South Regional
Phbn-A-Thon. Headauartered
at the Tamarac Jewish Center,
9101 NW 67th St., Tamarac,
the corps of workers stressed
the need to community
residents to answer the call,
and when the final totals were
tallied, a record 20 percent in-
crease from '86 was announc-
ed for the Federation/UJA.

National Leader on Israel's Outlook
An old woman, bowed under the weight of shopping::!;
bags, stopped a young boy, Leo Rosten, and asked,:?
"linger mon, ir farshteyt Yiddish?" ("Do you understand::-:
Yiddish?" g
"Yaw," he answered.
"Vat time is it?" &
Rosten claims that this was his earliest awareness of the ji;
"marvelous resilience and will to live" of Yiddish. This pro-1
lific author went on to write numerous books, two of which
are "The Joys of Yiddish" and "Hooray for Yiddish."
In the latter he explores the many Yiddish words and ij:
phrases that have crept their way into English. They have iji
surely enlivened the language and provided words and ex- S
pressions for which there surely are no English ::
"Farmisht" means mixed up and confused: all balled up. jij
For example: "I'm so farmisht I don't know whether I'm jij
coming or going." Obviously, one farmisht is a farmishter. jij
Example: "A farmishter like that shouldn't go for accoun-
tant." At the end of this explanation, Rosten throws in the iji
"Mr. Rockeller, you should move to our neighborhood!" iji
"Really? Why?" |
"Because no rich man ever died there."
"Khazer" means pig, a greedy lout, an ungrateful type, a
cheap, selfish person, or one who takes advantage of iji
another, through cheap tricks or cunning tactics. Rosten |
suggests that in pronouncing the word the "kh" be rattled, g
In using the adjective, "khazerish," one does so with a jij
tinge of envy: "He lives a khaerishen tug" means "He's liv- ?:
ing it up." "Khazeray" refers to awful food, cheap mer- g
chandise, an obscenity, or contemptible reading. Rosten &.
prefers it to its colloquial synonym, crap, because of its :
sonic lilt."
He relates the following story: The day after Mrs. :
Zelkin's funeral the rabbi dropped in to console the :|:
widower. To his astonishment he beheld the bereaved on j
the sofa making love to a dazzling redhead. "Zelkin!" jij
roared the rabbi. "Your beloved wife not even cold in the jij
grave and already you're "
Cried the khazer, "In my grief should I know what I'm >:
"Shmulky" means an ineffectual type, a pitiful person, a jij
sad sack, or a dopy, unbright specimen. Rosten recounts:
Shmulky gave the pharmacist a prescription. The phar- i
macist gave him three plastic tubes. "The white pills,' said iji
the druggist, "will help your headaches. The blue ones are iji;
for your asthma. And the red ones should calm your ij:
"My, my!" said Shmulky. "Such little things and |
already each one knows where to go." i-i
Last, but by no means least, is "nudzh." Rosten cautions jjji
that it is pronounced with the sound of the "u" in "put" :
and not "nut." As a noun, it's someone who pesters, nags, jij:
and annoys. For example, "He may be good-hearted, but jij:
what a nudzh!" As a verb, it is to act the boring nudnik, jij:
"Stop nudzhing me!"
The khazer was farmischt when he ran into a shmulky, jij
who was nothing but a nudzh. And that's the whole megilla! $

Who, Us?
Israel Said To Be
Aiding Pollards
A private fund established a
week ago to raise money for
Jonathan Pollard and his
wife, Anne Henderson-
Pollard, wound up its ac-
tivities Monday following
Israeli media reports that
official sources in Israel
were indirectly assisting the
American couple convicted
of spying for Israel.
The Voice of Israel reported
Monday that official sources had
paid out $80,000 towards the
Pollards' legal expenses which are
estimated at about $120,000 and
have promised to cover the full
amount if possible. There were no
reports of where the money
originated or how it was transfer-
red to the Pollards. A government
spokesman on Monday denied
that the government was involved
in any way with providing the
Pollards with funds.
former civilian intelligence
analyst employed by the U.S.
Navy, was sentenced to life im-
prisonment two weeks ago for his
espionage activities on behalf of
Israel. His wife received a fiw-
year sentence as an accessory.
The severity of the sentences
rallied public sympathy in Israel
for the Pollards. An opinion poll
published in Yediot Achronot last
Friday showed that 68 percent of
the respondents favored govern-
ment assistance to the Pollards,
22 percent preferred public
assistance, and only eight percent
thought no assistance should be
Thegovernment's position from
the outset has been that Pollard's
spying was a "rogue" operation
without the authorization or
knowledge of the government. It
has not deviated from that posi-
tion. After Pollard was sentenced,
Premier Yitzhak Shamir stated
that his fate was of no concern to
Israel since Israel neither hired
him nor gave him espionage
MEANWHILE, two official
probes are under way into the
government's involvement with
Pollard and its handling of the af-
fair. A two-man committee of in-
quiry established by the Inner
Cabinet began reviewing
documents Tuesday and called its
first witnesses Wednesday.
The committee is headed by
Yehoshua Rotenstreich, a promi-
nent Tel Aviv lawyer. Its other
member is Gen. (Res.) Zvi Tsur, a
former Chief of Staff.
Rotenstreich took the assignment
after it was rejected by retired
Supreme Court Justice Moshe
Landau because the committee
has been given no statutory
powers such as the right to sub-
poena witnesses and have them
testify under oath.
It will report directly to the
Cabinet. According to
Rotenstreich, its work will be
completed "no later than the end
of April."
In his report, the national
organization leader told the
audience that although the
political situation in Israel is
optimistic, the internal spec-
trum of events is less
"In the past year, incidents
of terrorism directed
specifically at Jews have con-
tinued at a rapid pace," he
said. "Leon Klinghoffer was
brutally shot, then thrown
overboard to the cold sea and
buried without family or
friends, simply because he was
Jewish. The murders at the
Istanbul synagogue dropped
all pretense of being anti-
Zionist, but not anti-Jewish
when they opened fire on a
room crowded with worship-
pers and killed 21 people.
"Since the Second World
War, we have vowed that Jews
would not be terrorized or
brutalized simply because they
are Jewish, and yet this hap-
pened with the world
He urged the campaigners to
apply pressure on world
governments to protest such

guest speaker.

Planning and Budget Committee Panels Announced
The Federations Planning
and Budget committee has
been busy meeting with the
various local agencies for the
purpose of determining the ac-
tual financial needs for next
year and making recommenda-
tions for the amount of alloca-
tion. These allocations that are
made on an annual basis, come
from the proceeds of the
United Jewish Appeal Cam-
paign and it is this committee
that is charged with the
responsibility of making those
determinations. The Federa-
tion Board of Directors must,
of course, approve the recom-
mendations of the committee.
John Streng and Sidney
Spewak, chairman and co-
chairman respectively, have
appointed a series of three
panels that meet with the
agencies. Panel One, with
Barry Mandelkorn and Gladys
Daren, chairman and co-
chairperson, meet with the
Central Agency for Jewish
Education and the Hebrew
Day School. Panel Two,
chaired by Alan Levy and Jo
Ann Levy, will make recom-
mendations for the Jewish
Community Center and Jewish
Family Service allocations.
Panel Three, chaired by
Walter Bernstein, will be
determining the allocations for
BBYO, Coral Springs Jewish

New Seaport
Israel has rejected proposals from
Arab businessmen in the West
Bank and Jordan to build a new
seaport in Gaza. Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin told a group of
them at a meeting Sunday that
the project was neither
economical nor practical, and
Israel does not have the budget
for it
Marwan Doudin, Jordan's
Minister for the administered ter-
ritories, raised the proposal at a
press conference last week. He
said a new port in Gaza would fur-
ther Jordan' efforts to improve
the economy in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip which are ad-
ministered by Israel.
He argued that the port would
promote Arab exports, especially
agricultural products, which are
unable to compete with Israeli ex-
ports, partly because of lack of ac-
cess to the sea. Rabin said he
would be willing to consider
specific plans for a Gaza port if
they were submitted.
Members of Panel One are, sitting from left, Dee Hahn, Florie
Straus, Howard Sherman and standing, Irving Libowsky, Libo
Fineberg, Gladys Daren, Alvin Capp and Paul Frieser.
Coalition, Jewish High School
of South Florida, Volunteers
for Israel, Hillel of Florida,

The three panels will be con-
ducting meetings through
April 1 at which time their
decisions will be made to the
Board of Directors.
Panel Three members at the last meeting were,
seated, Israel Resnikoff, Walter Bernstein and
behind them Larry Litwin and Stan Kane.

Hosts Teachers'
We are proud to announce
that the Southeastern Florida

Inc. will be hosting two
teachers' seminars entitled
"Teaching the Holocaust Us-

These seminars will target
those high school instructors
in Broward and Dade Counties
who teach their students about
World War II.
The workshop will include an
historical perspective of the
Holocaust, testimonies from
survivors, round table discus-
sions and a keynote address by
Dr. Stephen Fain, director of
the Institute of Judaic Studies
at FIU. Included in the pro-
gram will be the viewing of "In
Their Words," a videotape
developed by our center. This
tape, winner of the national

available for classroom use,
contains excerpts from inter-
views of Holocaust survivors
and American G.I.'s who
liberated the concentration
camps in Europe after World
War II.
The Broward seminar will
take place on Wednesday,

Thanks to You They Made It...
'Out of the Mud"
and windy night, a young
soldier angrily splashed his
way through the mud of a sod-
den Galilee hillside. Pushing
aside a dripping tent flap, he
raged at the man inside: "I've
spent my whole life trying to
get out of the mud! You pro-
mised you'd help me. If this is
what you call help, I don't
want it. You can keep the
paratroopers wings!"
The target of this outburst
was Avi Naor of Youth Aliyah,
who had been urgently sum-
moned to camp by the soldier's
commanding officer. "I
couldn't calm the boy that
night," says Naor. "Herd been
training hard and he was ex-
hausted. It wasn't the time to
remind him that he was 'back
in the mud,' as he put it, to get
out of it forever. Once he was
dry and rested, he decided to
stay in the officers' training
course. He made it, too. To-
day, four years later, he's a
paratroop commander."
That young man is a
graduate of one of Israel's 250
Youth Aliyah schools a
50-year-old educational net-
work, largely funded by the
United Jewiah Appeal/Federa-
tion Campaign through the
Jewish Agency. Created to
rescue and rehabilitate
traumatized children from
Holocaust Europe, Youth
Aliyah cares mainly for Israeli
youngsters born into socially,
economically or culturally
disadvantaged homes.
"Three or four years in
Youth Aliyah helps turn life
around for these youngsters,"
says Naor. "But it can't
always shake the stigma of an
underprivileged start. When
our kids go on to do their
Israel Defense Forces service,
both they and the IDF assume
they're fit only for the lower
ranks of the less glamorous
units. This of course becomes

disputed success, according to

have completed the course, 40
percent have become officers,

assumed other command posi-
tions far higher than
The three-month-old pro-
gram for girls, however, is still
at the teething problem stage.
"Beginnings are hard," Naor
said. "We sent recruitment
letters to 35 girls: 10 signed
up, and of these four have
made officer."
Part of the reason, he
believes, is a strongly anti-
feminist outlook among the
girls who "don't want to ap-
pear smarter than the boys"
by qualifying for higher ranks.
Part is that the women's
course is very tough. But part
is clearly because the program
is new.

Over 500 Attend NJCRAC Plenum in Ft. Lauderdale
Supreme Court Associate
Justice Harry A. Blackmun
told Jewish community leaders
that in this year of the 200th
anniversary celebration of the
United States Constitution,
the wall of separation between
religion and the state "is
crumbling a little."
Blackmun was the keynote
speaker at the recent Plenum
held by the National Jewish
Community Relations Ad-
visory Council (NJCRAC) at
the Bonaventure Hotel in Ft.
Over 500 representatives
from 11 national and 113 com-
munity agencies heard
Blackmun warn of the "in-
creasing tendency to bring
religion into government."
Blackmun said that the Con-
stitution and the Bill of Rights
"are our roots for government
and political freedom ... and
must be protected every day
and constantly."
Also addressing the Plenary
Session was American govern-
ment official, Thomas W.
Simons, who was unable to
confirm the release of Soviet
dissident Yosef Begun, at the
time of the session. Simons did
confirm that the Soviet Union
is making changes in terms of
human rights.
"Most of the things we hear
about signal movement in
what we consider to be the
right direction: more open-
ness, more room for alter-
native voices, more flexibility,
more decentralization."
Simons pointed out that the
Soviets still must do more in
the area of human rights, poin-
MjMJ.Jik harassment ..and
persecution of Prisoners of
Conscience and refuseniks.

ment as a result of Gor-

campaign was outlined by

refusenik leader, now living in

tion of Soviet officials wants to

trayed the framework for an

growing concern in Israel over the
fatal disease.
Although most of the victims
are homosexual or bisexual
males, half of the more than 1,000
telephone calls to the radio station
last week were from women, ac-
cording to medical doctors who
participated in the program. They
wanted to know if they could con-
tract AIDS from public toilets,
from kissing or immersion in a
public mikveh, the religious ritual
They were assured that AIDS is
not transmitted by touch but only
by sexual intercourse or a transfu-
sion of blood containing the AIDS
Only 35 cases of AIDS have
been diagnosed in Israel to date.
There have been 12 fatalities. The
purpose of the program, which
followed a television documentary
on the subject a^week earlier, was
to inform the public of the AIDS
diagnostic centers that have been
set up at a number of hospitals
where blood tests are conducted
One surprising aspect of the
program, according to a commen-
tator, was the medical opinion of-
fered that infants adopted from
Brazil should be tested for AIDS
because of the prevalence of the
disease in that country. The so-
called "Brazil Babies" are sought
by many Israeli couples because of
the shortage of babies for adop-
tion in Israel.
Meanwhile, a Tel Aviv district
court issued a seven-day ban on
meetings between a 12-year-old
boy and his uncle who has AIDS.
The ban was requested by the
boy's father. The AIDS victim is
being cared for by his sister, the
boy's mother, at the home of his
grandparents. The victim, not
identified, was described as a well
known Israeli fashion designer in
his early 40's who has been living
openly as a homosexual in Lon-

Nazi Connection
in Space Program
At the Contemporary Issues of

The U.S. government

cases covered up the Nazi
past of German rocket
scientists recruited after
World War II to boost the
U.S. space program, accor-
ding to a new television
"The Nazi Connection," was
aired Tuesday on the Public
Broadcasting Service (PBS)
"Frontline" program. It is an
hour-long documentary, based on
years of research by British jour-
nalist Tom Bower, that traces the
careers and crimes of several
scientists who directed Hitler's
advanced V-2 rocket program.
documents show that leading
rocket scientists Werner von
Braun and Arthur Rudolph over-
saw the construction of an
underground Nazi rocket factory
at Nordhausen, Germany, using
inmates of the nearby concentra-
tion camp, Dora, as slave labor.
Some 20,000 of the slaves were
either murdered or died of starva-
tion or disease.
Bower discovered that other
scientists conducted high-
pressure experiments that killed
the camp inmate subjects. In
other experiments, the scientists
fed prisoners only salt-water until
they died. Several of the scientists
were even tried in Nuremberg and
acquitted before the U.S. coopted
According to "The Nazi Connec-
tion," the rocket scientists had
gone into hiding by the end of the
war. The U.S. Army ordered
Robert Staver, an American
scientist, to locate them before
the Soviets did. They were
discovered, and von Braun and
about 100 of his team members
were secretly brought to the U.S.
Also recruited were the aviation
medicine experts who had ex-
perimented on the camp inmates.
THE PENTAGON directors of
the recruitment effort, called Pro-
ject Paperclip, arranged visas and
U.S. citizenship for the German
scientists despite then-President
Truman's prohibition against br-
inging i for the program.
Newly-reV cised documents and
interviews .vith Germans and
Americans indicated that the Pen-
tagon also "cleaned up" the war
records of the German scientists
to erase or tone down evidence of
ir atrocities and cooperation
with the Nazis.
Von Braun, Rudolph and the
other German scientists eventual-
ly received U.S. citizenship and
were decorated for their work in
the space program.
But years later, after the
Justice Department created the
Office of Special Investigations
(OSI) to locate and prosecute Nazi
war criminals living in the U.S.
some scientists lost their heroic
IN 1984, Rudolph, who directed
production of the U.S. Saturn 5
rocket, returned to Germany and
gave up his U.S. citizenship rather
than face prosecution for war
crimes committed at Nordhausen.
In an interview for the "The
Nazi Connection" after he return-
ed to Germany, the elderly
Rudolph said, "The U.S. govern-
ment is thankless to me."

An Impossible Dream?
If you reach for the stars, you
might land on the roof...
But if you reach for the roof,
you may never get off the
a lesson from grandmother
At our Women's Division
Board Conference held on
March 9 at the new Westin
Hotel, we examined several
issues. Helene Berger of
Miami, National Vice Chair-
woman of Women's Division of
Council of Jewish Federations
(CJF), was both questioning
and inspiring, In addressing
"How We See Ourselves as
Women," we were also led to
examine how both the general
campaign and the community-
at-large view Women's Divi-
sion. This all day seminar pro-
vided some interesting obser-
vations and even a few
How do we relate to
ourselves in our personal lives,
as board members, as
volunteers, and as members of
the Jewish community? These
are questions that we wrestle
with every day of our lives in a
myriad of different and
sometimes difficult situations.
Why do we volunteer? Why do
we put ourselves and our
reputations on the line, day in
and day out? What is in it for
us personally? And how do we
define what we do? Are we
"Professional Volunteers," or
"Volunteer Professionals"? Or
are we "merely housewives
trying to keep busy"? To that
last question at least.. there
is a resounding. .. NO! Never-
theless, how we see ourselves
is very important. Helene has
rightly called herself a
"Career Volunteer in Jewish
Communal Service." For those
of us who spend our time
working for the betterment of
the Jewish community, we
must take a positive and
upbeat look at what we do and
give it the value it deserves.
People who work in
Women's Divisions are very
remarkable. The main power
centers of the Jewish com-
munity are male dominated. In
an article on this subject,
Aviva Cantor states that,
"People become Jewish
'leaders' not because of brains,
good deeds, vision, or commit-
ment, but on the basis of the
amount of their contribution
and their power and status in
the general society. Men have
wealth and power, and women
lack these in sufficient quanti-
ty to matter. Men therefore
become the community's
It takes an extraordinary ef-
fort and energy for a woman,
whose financial contribution is
not comparable to the top male
givers, to be heard as a viable
voice in the community. On the
other hand, a young man
(especially a young profes-
sional) with little or no com-
munity service or commitment
is often considered 'a future
leader and therefore recom-
mended for further training.
He will inevitably be asked
to serve on the board of direc-
take every opportunity to
reach out to more of our
friends in each of our own
areas and welcome them into
our midst. Certainly, if more
women understood the fulfill-
ment of partaking in the
diverse aspects of Federation
they would want to become
associated with Women's Divi-
sion. By our efforts, we are
writing a chapter in Jewish
stress enough the importance
of showing appreciation and hi8tory-. The work is not easy, perienced young
recognition to others. If what but ^ Tewar^Iig md it is potential/ we
tors of other community agen-
cies as well as the board of
Federation/UJA. There is no
broad-based grooming of
women for leadership in the
general Federation campaign,
as there is for men. Women's
Divisions have attempted to
fill this void, but our 'trainees'
cannot, at this time, join their
brothers on the 'Big Board.'
Indeed, very few of our highly
qualified and experienced
women are invited to par-
ticipate on this level. Unfor-
tunately, it is the entire Jewish
community that is suffering.
Brain power and expertise
not being utilized is being
wasted. Women have proven
to be excellent business peo-
ple, superior lawyers, doctors
and managers and certainly
good fund-raisers. What must
happen before women can
share equally as decision
makers for the Jewish
What motivates people to
realize the goals that they seek
to achieve? Certainly high on
the list would be the personal
fulfillment that every human
being needs. To obtain
satisfaction as a volunteer,
Helene Berger guaranteed
that there are other elements
equally as important as finan-
cial remuneration. We are con-
stantly learning and growing
as each task is accomplished.
Friendships formed and shar-
ing of assignments and objec-
tives will very often produce
results that are usually greater
than those expected. Women's
Division has seen the effects of
community cooperation. By
working together toward a
common goal, this year's fund-
raising effort has gone over
the top. Even before the 1987
campaign is concluded, we
have collected over
$1,202,000, which is over 22
percent of the total campaign
of the Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale. It is through
the personal pride and an in-
ner sense of individual wor-
thiness, that each and every
woman who participated in
this accomplishment feels, that
made these figures a reality.
Responsibility, growth and
advancement were mentioned
as motivating factors in the
achievement of our own long
term goals. We can take pride
in the fact that our lives have
made a difference. As Helene
remarked, "Our work in the
Jewish world gives us a special
opportunity rarely afforded in
this computerized and nuclear
age, where one's search for
meaning in life often seems
futile. Our active connection
with the organized Jewish
world is an expression of sanc-
tity, of kedusha, because it is a
part of the continuity of our
people, part of the covenant
between the generations."
In her summation of the
morning program, Helene fur-
ther declared, "We live in a
time when diverse forces make
constant demands on our lives
and pull us away from that in-
ner core of Jewish faith,
wisdom and knowledge. It is a
time that tests our will and our
we undertake is done with ge-
nuine enthusiasm, others will
want to join us. We can never
underestimate the value of a
word of thanks or compliment
for a job well done. Praise
spurs people to achieve and
gives them confidence. In-
volvement and participation in
specific tasks will also en-
courage others to contribute
their time and energy as well
as their money. We have an
obligation to grow and become
a more effective force in the
Jewish community. We should
recognize our talents. It is
because we have been willing
to work hard and do well on
various levels. Women must,
perhaps for the first time in
history, ask for positions they
want and deserve. We must be
put on the agendas, and includ-
ed on decision making commit-
tees. When we consider that
capable and deserving women
are by-passed in favor of inex-
men with

The Council of Jewish
Federations has recently com-
pleted a lengthy study on "The
Place of Women in the Leader-
ship of Federations." One of
the stated purposes of CJF
Women's Divisions is 'to
strengthen women leaders and
advocate their inclusion in all
activities of CJF.' If we have
made any strides in this
endeavor, it is not because we
have sat back and waited for
the male leadership to
tand the predicament of the
entire Jewish people. The
irony is that we still expect
more from our own Jewish
The day is near when we will
reach the enlightened of this
community. Only then will we
be able to attract unaffiliated
Jews to join us in our life sav-
ing work. Perhaps maximum
involvement for both men and
women can indeed be more
than an impossible dream.

"I don't know what fund-
Iraisers can stress next year,"
says Charles Lawson a fund-
raising consultant. "I think
11987 is their last shot."
As for 1987, tax advisers and
I fund-raisers stress the same
I strategies as last year: Make
bigger donations while tax
rates are higher. Give ap-
preciated property, such as
real estate or securities, in-

next few years consider lump-
ing some together this year.
People in the top tax
brackets have the most to gain
from giving this year rather
than next year and after. The
higher the marginal tax rate,
the higher the tax saving from
a donation. A $10,000 cash gift
made this year by a married
couple with a marginal tax
rate of 38.5 percent will
generate tax savings of
$3,850. Next year, when the
couple's rate drops to 33 per-
cent, their savings will be only
Appreciated property will be
the darling of donations, many
fund-raisers say. "It's going to
be the best giving vehicle
possible," says Robert L.
Thompson, chairman of the
American Association of
Fund-Raising Counsel. "I
think many donors will have
stock portfolios strictly for giv-
ing purposes."
The law changed little regar-
ding such gifts. Donors of
securities and valuables that
have appreciated still can
deduct their full fair-market
value, and the ceiling on the
gifts remains 30 percent of the
donor's adjusted gross income.
But the new treatment of
capital gains gives appreciated
property an added bonus,
fund-raisers say. By giving an
asset, donors still avoid the
capital gains tax they would
have to pay if they sold it. That
benefit has made property
gifts cheaper than equal gifts
of cash. The benefit is
amplified by the new law,
which boosts the capital gains
tax rate in 1987 to 28 percent
from 20 percent last year. (In
1988, capital gains lose all
preferential treatment and are
taxed as ordinary income,
albeit at lower ordinary-
income rates.)
For some middle-income tax-
payers, the after-tax cost of a
gift of appreciated property
may be lower this year than it
was in 1986, say researchers
Gerald E. Auten of Bowling
Green State University and
Gabriel Rudney of Yale
University. The savings that
result from avoiding this
year's higher capital gains tax
are even greater than the
benefits of 1987's lowered tax
For example, a donor couple
filing a joint return who were
in the 38 percent bracket last
year fall into the 35 percent
bracket this year, when the
long-term capital gains tax
rises to 28 percent. If they give
property that has appreciated
50 percent, their after-tax cost
in 1987 will be 51 cents for
each dollar given; the same
appreciated-property gift last
year would have cost them 54
cents for each dollar's worth of
donation. The cost reductions
are welcomed lures to fund-
raisers girding to capture
But in the chorus of praise
for property gifts, the one sour
note comes from the alter-
native minimum tax, toughen-
ed by the new tax law. Tax-
payers don't like to pay it, and
fund-raisers don't like to talk
about it. One fund-raising
group told members in a
memo: "Wherever possible,
avoid even discussing the
Beginning this year, the ap-
preciation on property being
donated may subject a tax-
payer to the alternative
minimum tax, boosting the
cost of the gift. Most donors
won't be affected by the
minimum tax, tax advisors
say, but the likelihood of trig-
gering the tax climbs as the
size of the gift grows. One way
to escape the minimum tax,
therefore, is to spread large
gifts over several years, Mr.
Auten says.
There are other advantages
of long-term planning, says
Stanley S. Weithorn, a senior
tax partner at Baer Marks and
Upham in New York. He plans
to set up for several clients
what are called "charitable
lead" trusts.
Here's how the trusts work:
A donor puts assets in a trust
this year and picks a charity to
receive a specified amount of
the trust's income for a certain
period. The donor eventually
gets the assets back. The
donor also obtains an im-
mediate deduction when
current higher tax rates make
deductions worth more
equal to the value in 1987
dollars of the total income the
charity will receive.
Giving Appreciated Property
Donor's per-dollar after-tax cost for a gift of property that has
appreciated 50%. Such property might include stocks, bonds
and real estate.

An executive in the 38.5 per-
cent bracket in 1987 who sets
up a five-year lead trust to
generate annual income of
$21,000 before adjusting for
projected inflation obtains
an immediate tax saving of
about $31,000. By contrast, if
a second donor in the same tax
bracket contributed the same
$21,000 in cash for each of the
five years, the tax saving
would total around $29,000.
While at first that isn't a big
difference, the "lead trust'
donor then can invest a much
larger chunk of the tax savings
up front, earning more than
the other donor. At the end of
the five years, if both donors
invest their tax savings in the
same 7 percent tax-exempt
securities, the "lead trust"
donor will have accumulated
about $43,000; the other
donor, around $32,000.
"For the same donation,"
says Mr. Weithorn, "that's a
big difference."

Blacks, Jews
Told To Restore Strained Coalition
American blacks and Jews
must restore their mutual
trust and cooperation
based on similar heritages
of oppression and more
agreement than they realize
on the domestic political
agenda a leading black ac-
tivist and a noted rabbi
declared here last week.
But implicit in restoration are
obstacles, as was acknowledged
by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, chair-
man of the National Rainbow
Coalition and a candidate for the
Democratic Presidential nomina-
tion in 1984 and perhaps 1988,
and Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum,
director of international relations
for the American Jewish Commit-
tee and a fellow civil rights leader.
Tanenbaum spoke for himself,
although the program originally
was announced on American
Jewish Committee stationery.
dressed also by members of the in-
terracial audience of about 2,000
at Queens College, attending
"The Religious Leader as Political
Activist," the first of three public
forums scheduled by the
18-month-old Queens (N.Y.)
Black-Jewish People to People
Following the speakers' presen-
tations on the need to find com-
mon ground, questioners brought
up black-Jewish disputes over
quotas as a vehicle for affirmative
action, the infamous
"Hymietown" remark during
Jackson's Presidential campaign
and his support of Nation of Islam
leader Louis Farrkhan.
The speakers handled the quota
issue swiftly. "Blacks and Jews
have very different reactions to
the word 'quotas,' Jackson said
in his prepared remarks. "For
blacks, a quota can be a door to op-
portunity. For Jews, the quota
systems has meant a ceiling on
success." He noted that both
groups support increased job
Tanenbaum agreed that the
goal was shared and contended
that the real problem was lack of
enforcement of current laws.
not resolved, as Tanenbaum called
on Jackson to distance himself
from the man who has criticized
Judaism as a "gutter religion"
and has close ties with Libya.
Jackson called the issue
Saying Jackson can contribute
significantly to American social
and economic justice, the rabbi
nevertheless declared: "I think
you're fooling yourself if you think
the issue of Louis Farrakhan is
marginal altogether ... In
Madison Square Garden, 25,000
people gave him a standing ova-
tion when he uttered the most vile
anti-Semitic bigotry ... We are
not dealing with a minor
The rabbi proclaimed that sup-
port of Farrakhan is an
"ideological problem of a very
profound nature. We have got to
deal with that as almost a
pathology. If the Vatican and the
Catholic Church after 1,900 years
of preaching that kind of stun ...
have the courage to face it and say
they are wrong ... we have the
right to ask in an appropriate
way, that it be rejected with no
ands, ifs or buts."
If blacks and Jews "really want
to turn the corner," he said,
Jackson should feel free to discuss
what Tanenbaum called the
racism of Kach Knesset member
Meir Kahane, and Jews should
feel free to bring up Farrakhan.
JACKSON SAID the conflicts
over Farrakhan and the
"Hymietown" remark for
which he said he has apologized -
should not be the "litmus test" for
the black-Jewish relationship.
Pressed on the issue by Tanen-
baum's statement and another
questioner, Jackson said that
"anti-Semitism and racism should
be rejected, no ifs, ands or buts."
Jackson said that the
mainstream black community, like
mainstream U.S. Jewry, does not
share the views of the extremists.
"Just as you say to trust you, you
must trust me," he said. "Almost
nobody black believes in (Far-
rakhan's racism)," he stated.
He said blacks have complaints,
too, against whites and Jews
about racist advertisements,
about Israel's sale of arms to
South Africa and "some rather
outstanding Jewish names that
are in the media who represents
(sic) real, serious threats to life
and limb and resources, but we
refuse to make that a centerpiece
of our relationship, and I hope we
never will." There was no elabora-
tion on the comment about the
SPEAKING TO a questioner
who was the leader of the Jewish
students at Queens College,
Jackson advocated looking to
common issues such as human
rights and funding for education
as a springboard to improving
relations between Jewish and
black students there.
The Jewish leader noted that he
has failed in attempts to establish
a dialogue with the black student
leader, who coincidentally was the
previous questioner. Jackson ask-
ed the black leader to approach
the Jewish leader, and bade them
to shake hands. The audience
Jackson said the task of the
black and Jewish communities
was "to take the bits of pieces of
broken relationship which will
never be whole by definition and
to .. coalesce around a common
agenda. That's our choice, and it
may be our only chance."
general the domestic agenda of
the Democratic Party, he and
Tanenbaum agreed.
Jackson said that even during
the height of the black-Jewish
coalition in the 1960s there were
disagreements, "but w^ simply
chose on a scale of 10, that we
agreed on seven out of 10, and
let's move on .. You maximize
the plusses, minimize the minuses
and move on."
Speaking afterward to
reporters, Jackson evaluated his
joint appearance with Tanenbaum
as "a challenge to come together"
for blacks and Jews. The rabbi
said, "We've determined the time
has come to make a breakthrough
in black-Jewish relations."

bin demonstratively absented
hemselves from the Knesset ses-
ion. They seemed to be
nderscoring their determination
prevent renewed furor over
ollard to mushroom into a full-
edged judicial inquiry.
IN THEIR absence, Likud
ransportation Minister Haim
orfu spoke for the government.
i a prepared statement he
iterated the government's posi-
on that Pollard's espionage mis-
lion was a rogue operation of
vhich the government had been
fnaware, that lessons were learn-
from it and drastic measures
iken to prevent its recurrence.
Pollard, a former civilian in-
ligence analyst employed by the
J.S. Navy, was sentenced to life
imprisonment in Washington last
week for spying for Israel. His
wife, Anne Henderson-Pollard
received a five-year sentence as
an accessory. The severity of
Pollard's sentence seemed to
underscore American displeasure
with Israel, although the U.S. of-
ficially accepted the "rogue opera-
tion" explanation.
This triggered demands by
several Ministers, Knesset
members and the media for a full-
scale inquiry. The non-confidence
motions were introduced by the
Citizens Rights Movement (CRM),
Mapam and the Progressive List
for Peace. CRM MK Yossi Sarid
introduced a motion to establish a
judicial commission of inquiry.
BUT INFORMED political
observers saw little chance that
this would come about despite
support from many political
figures, including coalition
Instead, the Knesset Foreign
Affairs and Security Committee's
special subcommittee on in-
telligence will begin a probe of its
own on Thursday, Committee
chairman Abba Eban announced.
Eban said the first to testify will
be Defense Minister Rabin. The
hearings will be held in camera.
Shamir announced earlier that the
Inner Cabinet (five Labor and five
Likud Ministers) would convene in
closed session Wednesday to con-
sider the issue in depth. But there
was no suggestion of any in-
vestigation although at least one
member of the Inner Cabinet,
Ezer Weizman, forcefully favors
Shamir, meanwhile, sought to
distance Israel from Pollard.
Speaking to reporters during a
visit to Migdal Ha'emek, he said
that the Pollard family's predica-
ment "may be a humanitarian
problem or a moral problem but it
is not a problem with which the
State of Israel has to concern
He added that "The State of
Israel has no connection with
Pollard or his family. The State of
Israel did not hire him and did not
assign him espionage missions."

JERUSALEM Ezer Weizman, the only member of ::
the government to publicly call on Israel to negotiate with
the Palestine Liberation Organization, declared that only :j:j
talks with the PLO or an expressed readiness for such talks :?
can expedite peace negotiations with Jordan.
JERUSALEM Leon Dulzin announced that he would ::
not seek re-election as chairman of the Jewish Agency and &
World Zionist Organization Executives at the next World ::
Zionist Congress in December.
JERUSALEM The slump in tourism to Israel may be
over, according to officials of the Ministry of Tourism here.
They reported significantly improved figures for the last
two months of 1986 and the beginning of 1987. In fact, the
Ministry predicts a 20 percent rise in American tourist
traffic this year, although tourism from the U.S. and
Canada has always lagged behind Europe.
The officials admit that 1986 was a very bad year for
tourist traffic in Israel, as in Europe. They attributed it to
the rash of terrorist acts, particularly the hijacking of the
Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro in 1985, in which
American passenger Leon Klinghoffer was murdered.
Overall tourist arrivals to Israel in 1986 amounted to 1.2
million, down 17 percent from 1985, the all-time record
year. The figures included passengers from cruise ships
who generally spend no more than a day in Israel and
sailors from the U.S. Sixth fleet on shore leave.
Income from tourism is estimated at $950,000 in 1986, a
15 percent drop from the previous year.

Few surgical procedures are
more critical to life itself than open
heart surgery. And, clearly, there are
few procedures where the experience
of the physician is more critical, more
So if you must have open heart
surgery, it should be of great comfort
to know that, led by Dr. James Jude,
the surgeons at The North Ridge
Heart Institute perform more open
heart procedures than any other hos-
pital in South Florida
In fact, over 4,000 people have
come to us for open heart surgery in
the last 10 years. For the experience
of our physicians. And the excellence
of our care.
Because along with our physi-
cians, Cardiovascular Clinical Nurse
Specialists give individual attention
and support to you and your family
throughout your hospital stay
And after surgery, a comprehen-
sive rehabilitation program helps you
return to your normal life as quickly
as possible.
But we'd rather help you avoid
I open heart surgery entirely. So we
I offer one of the most advanced diag-
! nostic testing and alternative treat-
iments available. Backed by the exper-
tise of Dr. Ali Ghahramani, who has
performed more than 10,000 cardiac
catheterizations and over 600 balloon

nothing less than expert cardiac care.

Diabetes Control and
the Kosher Diet
By Ada P. Kahn. Skokie, Il-
linois: Wordscope Associates,
170 pages, paperback: $9.95
(Order from: Wordscope
Associates, P.O. Box 159U,
Skokie, IL 60007.)
For a person just diagnosed
with diabetes, the re-
quirements of a new diet may
seem confusing. But if the
same individual is also of the
Orthodox Jewish faith and
follows the dietary laws of
Kashrut (keeps kosher), put-
ting both sets of "rules" into
practice may seem overwhelm-
ing. It can be done, however,
and Ada Kahn's book, Diabetes
Control and the Kosher Diet,
provides the needed
Broad in scope, the book
helps Jewish people who keep
kosher and who have diabetes
to better understand their
disease and to apply both sets
of dietary guidelines to their
meal planning. The book pro-
vides general information on
diabetes (types, symptoms,
research) and healthy meal
planning and includes
guidelines for traveling and
sick days.
The book gives health-care
professionals and diabetes
educators who work with Or-
thodox Jewish patients a bet-
ter understanding of the tradi-
tions and rules of kosher din-
ing. Included are detailed lists
of kosher foods, definitions of
words such as "kosher,"
"pareve," and "traif," and
descriptions-ejf Jewish holidays
and their respective food
Although not a cookbook,
recipes that have been
developed and tested by Telia
Lichtman, R.D., are included
in the book. Among the recipes
are traditional foods such as
cheese blintzes, matzo balls,
chopped liver, meat kreplach,
and cabbage-beet borscht.
There are also modified
recipes with less calories, fat,
and sugar than their tradi-
tional counterparts. Such
modified selections include
cauliflower latkes, mock chop-
ped liver (meatless),
strawberry "cheesecake"
mousse, and tzimmes with car-
rots and apples.
In all recipes, the authors
calculate exchanges, calories,
and grams of carbohydrate,
protein, and fat. Many recipes
also contain directions on how
they may be adjusted for low-
sodium diets. The exchange
lists in this book also include
other traditional foods, such as
challah, matzo meal, lukshen
(luchen), and chicken schmaltz.
Though the authors don't
mention the importance of
soluble fiber or the glycemic
differences of food, you can
still learn much from Diabetes
Control and the Kosher Diet.
And you don't have to be a
Jewish mother to enjoy this
book; it's a valuable resource
for anyone interested in trying
traditional and not so tradi-
tional Jewish cooking.

School Network
The Jewish Community Day
School Network (JCDSN), an ex-
citing new organization for com-
munity day schools was created at
an historic conference recently
held in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Network was established with
the encouragement of the Jewish
Education Service of North
America, Inc., (JESNA), designed
to give non-affiliated day schools
throughout the United States and
Canada an opportunity to share
and exchange ideas, budgets, cur-
ricular and other materials, and
especially to discuss the common
ideology which links community
According to Rabbi David
Shluker, Director of JESNA's
Department of Community Con-
sultation and Planning, the
schools comprising the Network
are either independent or com-
munally sponsored, receive
federation support, and embrace a
pluralistic approach to transmit-
ting the Jewish heritage and
values in their educational pro-
grams. The schools are committed
to a set of principles which repre-
sent an ideological model for tran-
sideological Jewish education.
While denominationally affiliated
schools interact with existing
denominational networks, the
community day schools have, until
now, lacked a unifying body and a
central address.
The Network will hold its se-
cond conference in Miami Beach,
following the Council of Jewish
Federation's General Assembly-in
November, 1987.
Schools interested in joining
this group should contact Rabbi
David Shluker at the JESNA of-
fice in New York, 730 Broadway,

Reviewed by Arnold Ages
The twentieth-century con-
flict between Jews and Arabs
has no precedent in former
times because Jews and
Judaism were, until recent
times, of only peripheral in-
terest to Islamic civilization.
The fact that Jews lived in
Islamic cultures did, however,
influence the development of
Judaic modes of thought,
folklore, and cultural habits.
Raphael Patai shows,
nonetheless, that there was
some cross-pollination: the
Hebrew Bible and particularly
the Midrash were digested
(somewhat imperfectly it
would seem) by early Muslim
The major portion of the
civilizational traffic went the
other way. Despite the ine-
quities for Jews living in
Muslim lands there was much
opportunity for the "dhimmis"
or protected people, to flourish
within the Islamic milieu.
Author Patai documents in
luxuriant detail how this ef-
florescence of Jewish intellec-
tual life occurred in what has
been commonly called the
Golden Age of Spain. It was in
the city of Cordoba especially
that the great Jewish
philosophers, historians, and
Bible scholars such as Hadai
Ibn Shaprut and his colleagues
burst forth onto the Jewish
The emergence of such
Jewish creativity under Islam
was not accidental, according
to the author. Under the Arabs
Cordoba was the most advanc-
ed and enlightened European
city of its time. Its urban
amenities such as street
lighting and cultural facilities
provided an intellectual
stimulus which redounded to
the advantage of Jews within
that society.
In his survey of Jewish life in
various Arab lands Patai
reviews both the incivilities en-
countered by Jews and the
positive experiences as well.
He is careful to note that
Jewish destiny depended a
great deal on which Arab coun-
try Jews settled in and in what
period. Throughout his nar-
rative Patai illustrates the
ways in which Islamic folk
culture, superstition and
religious doctrine penetrated
Jewish consciousness.
In the latter part of his book
Patai deals with the anomolous
situation of Arabs living under
Jewish hegemony a startl-
ing reversal of the historical
continuum. That anomaly, the
case of Israel today, is the sub-
ject of David K. Shipler's
lengthy and penetrating look
at the tensions which animate
Israeli society today.
Shipley, a non-Jew, was a
New York Times correspon-
dent in Israel for several
years. His book is part repor-
tage, part polemic and part in-
terview. He successfully
meshes these modes of ap-
proaching a complex subject in
an artistic tour de force. The
author has delved into the
psyche of both the Israeli Arab
and the Israeli Jew.
While many of the pathways
explored by Shipley have been
trod by others, there are a
number of fresh and original
insights in his essays. He is
among the first writers known
to this reviewer, to have
thoroughly analyzed textbooks
in the Israeli school system
and shown them to be guilty of
stereotypic thinking in the
depiction of Arabs a sin once
considered the exclusive
preserve of the Arab educa-
tional system.
Equally insightful are
Shipley's well-researched com-
ments about the flight of the
Arab refugees from Palestine
in 1948. The author shows that
slowly and reluctantly Israelis
are beginning to concede that
the Arab exodus was
precipitated by both official
and unofficial pressure on the
part of the fledgling Israeli ar-
my. Shipley even produces
pages from Yitzhak Rabin's
autobiography (pages which
were removed from the
original Hebrew text) which
confirm this unhappy
historical event.
In his conversations with
Jews and Arabs author Shipley
discovered a depth of passion
and hatred between the two
communities which appear to
be unbridgeable. This is clearly
seen in encounters he had with
Arab West Bank residents
who told the New York Times
man that they applauded the
terrorist attacks on Jewish
civilians. Shipley contrasts this
with a similar attitude he
detected among Israeli Jews
who spoke in defense of the
Jews who had been convicted
of terrorism.
Throughout his book the
author tries to balance the con-
flicting historical, political,
religious and social claims of
Jews and Arabs. The resulting
portrait suggests that there is
an equality of justice on both
sides. This is not a position
which will be welcomed by
strongly partisan people.
Shipley's book deserves a
careful reading because it
echoes the candid voices of
Arabs and Jews.

Winter Season Volunteers Of
The Month
Cited for their outstanding
service to the Center, these
are the Winter Season
honorees chosen by JCC staff:
December- Barney Garb;
January- "Schnay Vyse ..."
February- Joyce Crowell.
Barney Garb says he just
loves kids- and proves it by
spending almost every morn-
ing of the week with 18 lively
four and five year olds. A
"regular" in Miss Fran and
Miss Carol's Pre-K class,
Barney helps children with
crafts projects, plays with
them outdoors, leads a prayer
during Oneg Shabbat, sings
songs with them, helps escort
them to different places on
campus and in general is in-
valuable, say the teachers.
How did JCC get so lucky?
The Center has the Belmont
JCC (near San Francisco) to
thank. Our JCC Volunteer of
the month was visiting his son
and daughter-in-law and two
of his grandchildren, residents
of the Belmont area. And his
daughter-in-law who is the
Early Childhood Assistant
Director at that Center asked
him to come with her to school
one day. That he did. And
there after spent every morn-
ing of his California vacation
with kids, California-style.
Wanting more of the same
back home, Barney Garb of
Lauderdale West contacted,
came, saw, and then joined the
JCC Pre-School participants
last November.
Barney has been in this area
for the past 10 years, coming
from Bloomfield, N.J. For 30
years he operated a gift shop
with his late wife, specializing
in fine china, accessories ana
costume jewelry. Barney has
another son residing in Bloom-
field with four more of his
grandchildren. His six grand-
children range in age from 11
to 27.

Dear Grandmothers and
As we grandparents know,
there is only one beautiful
grandchild in the whole world
and naturally, each grand-
parent has one.
The pleasures which our
grandchildren give us are
limitless. All we have to do is
supply the incentive. There is a
great deal more to a grand-
parent and grandchild rela-
tionship than simply visiting
our children's homes, spoil the
grandchildren and then go
I would like to tell you a
story about myself and one of
my granddaughters. I am in
my 60s. Julie, a student at
University of Maryland, is 20.
For the past couple of years, I
have been involved with the
Volunteers For Israel, a pro-
gram dedicated to provide sup-
port to the people of Israel
through volunteer work in the
defense forces. Work
assignments are on Army,
Navy or Air Force supply and
maintenance bases in Israel
for two or three week periods.
I have served at a tank base
and a naval base.
There is no doubt that Israel
gained from the volunteer's
contributions but the balance
sheets indicate that we
volunteers came away greatly
enriched emotionally and
spiritually. One does not have
to be a Zionist. It is more of a
declaration to our brothers
and sisters in Israel that they
are not forgotten and that we
want to give more of ourselves
to them and to the State of
Israel. Buying bonds and con-
tributing to UJA is fine but it
does not supply the personal
He's Humiliated
Rabbi Avi Weiss, released Thurs-
day (March 12) from jail for
demonstrating in front of the
Soviet Embassy here, said his im-
prisonment was "humiliating"
and "dehumanizing."
Weiss, speaking at a press con-
ference here attended by Natan
Sharansky's mother, Ida
Milgrom, and his brother, Leonid,
said his jail term was "insignifi-
cant" compared to what Soviet
Jews had suffered.
Weiss, who recently had bypass
heart surgery, was permitted to
stay in a cell in the jail's infirmary
where he was segregated from
other prisoners. He was visited by
Rep. Ted Weiss (D., N.Y.).
"I think jail is a way to try to
strip you of your worship of God.
It's a way for other people to con-
trol you and dehumanize you. You
take off your clothes, and six peo-
ple come around to look at you.
It's much more than just a strip
search," Weiss said.
Julie is one half of a pair of
gorgeous, lovable twin grand

Stephanie is a student at

I had their respect and admira-

not a complete surprise when
Julie declared her intention to
follow in grandpa's footsteps.

chooses to give it, the energy is
Two major Soviet Jewry ac-
tivist groups say that they
do not support Israeli
Premier Yitzhak Shamir's
request that the United
States stop granting
refugee status to Soviet
Jews, which allows them to
come directly to the United
States instead of Israel.
Shamir stated throughout his
recent visit to the United States
that with the existence of Israel,
no Jew is a refugee.
Glenn Richter, national coor-
dinator of the Student Struggle
for Soviet Jewry, said he agrees
that Jews no longer may be con-
sidered refugees. But he
presented a different explanation
for neshira Soviet Jews "drop-
ping out" from Israel and coming
to the U.S. with their Israeli visas.
"I THINK that the statements
(of Shamir) don't meet the pro-
blem," he said, "which arises out
of frustration from the Soviets'
deliberately releasing those who
they know wiltfb to America. The
ratio of noshrim (dropouts) has re-
mained relatively constant for the
last five years."
"If the Soviet government
would permit direct flights from
the USSR to Israel," added
Richter, "then Soviet Jews could
see Israel for themselves rather
than being subjected only to the
Kremlin's propagandists view of
But there is another problem,
Richter observed: "Soviet Jews
who arrive in Israel cannot legally
go to the U.S. if they ask to leave
Israel, because they've lost their
refugee status. However, a Soviet
Jew arriving in the U.S. is always
welcome in Israel."
"One must still retain an ele-
ment of choice," Richter said. The
issue, as it now stands, he said,
creates a "no-win situation."
LYNN SINGER, executive
director of the Long Island Com-
mittee for Sovjet Jewry and a past
president of the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews, spoke for both
organisations, the Long Island
Committee being a member
organization of the Union of
Councils. The Union's position,
Singer said, is that "We do not
agree that neshira destroyed the
opportunity for Soviet Jews to
receive exit visas. We fully em-
pathize with the State of Israel in
its position that all Jews should
make aliya. But realistically, the
name of the game is free emigra-
tion, and this is how the Union of
for emigration.'
However, the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) is
currently taking a more cautious
position on the matter. Shamir
spoke at a session convened by the
NCSJ at which leaders of national
Jewish organizations were pre-
sent to discuss the issue of Soviet
The NCSJ released a statement
following the meeting saying that:
"The matters the Prime Minister
discussed have now been squarely
placed on the agenda of the
American Jewish community for
careful consideration as an urgent
item affecting the welfare of the
Jewish people as a whole.
the community are as one both on
the need for substantial and sus-
tained emigration from the Soviet
Union to the State of Israel, and
that the claim for repatriation to
Israel is a valid and compelling
argument. There was mutual
agreement that issues delineated
by the Prime Minister must be
subjects for serious and ongoing
Jerry Strober, a spokesperson
for the NCSJ, told JTA that the

Iranian Jew Seized in Boston
BOSTON (JTA) Mordechai Yitzhakyam, a
28-year-old Iranian Jew from Israel, spent the Purim holi-
day in the Coast Guard detention barracks here. His Ira-
nian passport was seized when he landed at Logan Airport
last Friday, though it contained a valid U.S. visa, because it
was illegally altered, according to U.S. immigration
RABBI RICHARD YELLIN of Mishkan Tefila Con
gregation of Chestnut Hill tried without success to have
Yitzhakyam released for the Purim Festival. According to
Yellin, Yitzhakyam came to Israel in 1979 to escape the
regime of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
He retained his Iranian passport in hope of returning
there some day to retrieve property.

An Exciting Contribution to the Literature of Heroism
Sckmrmnokw: Hero of Our
Tun*. By Martin Gilbert Vik-

Street, New York, NY 10010,
1986. 418 pages. $U.95.
Reviewed by Jerry Goodman
The Soviet Jewish
"refusenik" Anatoly (Natan)
Scharansky who gained his
freedom in February 1986,
after nine years in prisons and
labor camps, could not escape
being subjected to the heavy
but superficial coverage in the
media. We are, therefore, for-
tunate to have an authoritative
biography by the noted British
historian Martin Gilbert,
which was published by
Elisabeth Sifton Books (Vik-
ing), soon after the ebullient
activist arrived in Israel. (The
title of the book spells
Scharansky's name differently
from the way he now prefers,
using an extra h.)
Gilbert draws upon a wealth
of previously unpublished
documents he began to collect
over three years ago. Included
are messages from Scharan-
sky and his friends which serv-
ed to alert the world to their
plight; detailed accounts from
his trial; and Scharansky's let-
ters from prison to friends and
family. The book is really
crafted from two interlocking
stories: a much needed, up-to-
date history of the Soviet
Jewry emigration movement,
and Anatoly Scharansky's own
story. It will, therefore, appeal
to a broad segment of the
population. The unique
photographs help make it
alive, and the index will be of
great assistance to
Scharansky first gained pro-
minence in the Jewish emigra-
tion movement as an inter-
preter for Western journalists
and visitors. Afterwards, he
served as a representative of
the Jewish activist movement
on the Moscow Helsinki Watch
Committee, an unofficial
group created to monitor
Soviet compliance with the
human rights provisions of the
1975 Helsinki Final Act.
When Soviet authorities
decided to destroy the Helsinki
monitoring group, and isolate
the Jewish emigration ac-
tivists, Scharansky's personal
security became threatened.
Arrested in March 1977 and
tried for treason, he was
sentenced to a combined term
of 13 years in prison and labor
camp, only to be freed by the
Soviet Union as part of an ex-
change involving spies ar-
rested in the West.
Gilbert devotes the opening
chapters to an account of
Scharansky's childhood and
youth, his career as a student
and, finally, his beginnings as
a computer technologist. He
documents Scharansky's
maturation at the same time a
great ferment was developing
among Soviet Jews. It was a
period, after the mid-1986s,
when the Soviet regime began
to make exit visas available for
Jews who wished to rejoin
their families in Israel. Here
the book suggests some of the
reasons why Scharansky
devoted so much of his energy
to helping Jews emigrate. It
also gives us a quick introduc-
tion to the emigration
The author offers a
remarkably detailed account.
based on the words and
testimony of friends and
associates, of how Anatoly
Scharansky became an ag-
gressive activist on behalf of
"refuseniks" and "Prisoners
of Zion." As his wife A vital
later recalled, "He was always
concerned about other peo-
ple ."a characteristic which
probably caused Scharansky to
join the Helsinki Monitors, as
part of a circle which widened
to include dissidents struggl-
ing for human rights in the
Soviet Union.
Gilbert gives us a full story
of the constant surveillance
with which Scharansky lived
for a year before his arrest as
an alleged American spy, and
his eventual trial. Though the
judicial proceedings were clos-
ed, the author obtained an
unusually detailed account of
the indictment, Scharansky's
own defense in court, and the
final charges made by the
Scharansky's personal story
is juxtaposed against that of
his wife, A vital. She left the
Soviet Union for Israel in July
1974, a day after their wed-
ding, expecting that he would
join her soon. She ended up
spending the next 12 years
rallying support around the
world for her husband's
release, as well as for the
overall emigration movement.
Often in solitary confinement,
or sent to a remote labor camp
from which most visitors were
barred by administrative
obstacles, Scharansky had only
a whisper of her efforts.
Gilbert examines various
factors leading to the
emergence of the Soviet Jewry
movement, including anti-
Semitism and a resurgent
Jewish national feeling after
Israel's victory in the 1967 Six-
Day War. He details the
demonstration, appeals, and
letters that gave the
refuseniks a sense of purpose,
as well as the arrests and im-
prisonments they faced. He
depicts key figures in the
movement how they saw
policy changes, celebrated
small successes, and protested
against the denial of exit visas
to Israel.
The book chronicles the in-
dividual and collective courage
of Scharansky and other
refuseniks. After Scharan-
sky's arrest, many of his
friends and colleagues were
repeatedly interrogated.
Despite threats, or promises of
exit permits, no one betrayed
him. In the end Scharansky,
and the arduous campaign to
help free him, came to il-
lustrate the courajje of the en-
tire Jewish emigration move-
ment. It also made Scharansky
a major symbol of that

count Scharansky's captivity,

friends, and of the untiring ef-

When They Reach A Turning Point, They Can Turn To Us
Israel faces a turning point
as threatening to its survival
as war. This time, the issue is
economic. While an austerity
program has reduced inflation
dramatically, it has caused a
crisis in agriculture and the
most severe unemployment in
Israel's 38-year history.
Through its Rural Settlement
Department, the Jewish Agen-
cy for Israeli with funds from
the United Jewish Appeal,
seeks to strengthen established
farms, retrain farm families
whose debts are overwhelming,
research and develop new in-
dustrial crops, and develop
water resources in the Arava.

Now the moshav is in trou-

continue to rely on agricultural
exports alone for revenue.
Competition from southern
Europe and North Africa is
cutting into profits. Recently,
the moshav has experimented
with growing aloe vera and a
protein-rich alga called
spirulina. If commercial uses
can be found for these crops,
then a viable new source of
revenue will ease the worries

Anti-Semitic Books on Rise in Japan



United Press International
TOKYO Jewish leaders
and Israeli diplomats have ex-
pressed alarm at a recent wave
of popular anti-Semitic
literature in Japan, including a
best seller that blames the
country's current economic
problems on American Jews.
About a dozen Japanese-
language books have appeared
in the past year with anti-
Semitic overtones, generally
blending admiration and envy
of stereotyped Jewish business
acumen with fear of its alleged
influence on U.S. government
The authors range from
little-known academics to a
Kominent business leader,
:n Fujita, who heads Japan
operations for the McDonald's
fast food chain and whose
books include Blowing the Rich
Man's Horn, Jewish-style.
Although Israeli Embassy
officials and leaders of Japan's
tiny Jewish community doubt
the books will incite a rise in
anti-Semitism, they expressed
concern because some have
sold tens of thousands of

High School
The Jewish High School of
South Florida, like high
schools in Israel, celebrated Tu
B'Shevat, the New Year for
Trees, with a special program
on Feb. 13.
Rabbi Chaim Messinger,
Head of the Department of
Jewish Studies, together with
his 9th grade class, gave an in-
formative presentation on the
meaning of Tu B'Shevat.
Yossi Yanich, prominent
Israeli folk dance instructor,
led an enthusiastic group of
students in Israeli dancing on
the lawn of the school.
Students sampled an assort-
ment of Israeli fruits tradi-
tional on Tu B'Shevat.
In the spirit of Tzedakah
(charity), Jewish High School
students presented Rabbi
Louis Herring, Principal, with
a Jewish National Fund cer-
tificate for trees planted in
Israel in memory of his belov-
ed father.
Jewish High School is a
beneficiary of the Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign.

don't have to like Jews, but we

truth is."
Recent attention has focused
on an Osaka writer, Masami
Uno, who asserts the rise of
the Japanese yen in the past
two years was orchestrated by
powerful American Jewish
business interests to "hollow
out" Japanese industry.
The yen's rise was sought by
Washington as a means of eas-
ing the U.S. trade deficit. By
making Japanese exports
more expensive, however, it

Uno's latest paperback,
which has already sold 150,000
copies, also claims that Jews
control all major multinational
corporations, that business
leader David Rockefeller is a
"closet Jew" and that Adolf
Hitler "worked for the benefit
of his country."
"I'm really saying Japanese
are dumb and they need to
understand how powerful
Jews are to understand how
the United States works," Uno
said in an interview.
"Japanese money is going to

American economy is led by
Previous rises in anti-Jewish
sentiment also have often been
a function of accommodative
politics, such as during World
War II or following the 1970s
oil crises, when Japan, heavily
dependent on Middle East
crude, joined the Arab boycott
of Israel.
But because the attempt to
fix blame for economic woes
comes amid an ongoing
resurgence of Japanese na-
tionalism, which is tinged with
feelings of racial superiority,
some scholars say the two,
taken together, are troubling.
"It reveals a sense of
frustration in comprehending
what's going on in the world,
they're trying to find the guy
responsible," said sociologist
Herbert Passin of New York's
Columbia University, a Japan
expert in Tokyo.

was given in appreciation of Ambassador Rosenne's "dedication,
friendship and support of our common cause." Two hundred
Jewish community leaders, under the leadership of National Vice
Chairman Jerome Dick, attended the two-day program in
Washington, D.C., exchanging views with key Congressional and
Administration-policy makers on leading domestic and interna-
tional issues. Caucusing at the end of the program, the par-
ticipants raised $2.8 million for UJA/Federation Campaigns.
