Passover A Time To Create New Miracles;
Jewish Federation/United Jewish Appeal Way
General Chairman
Yes we can create new
miracles on Passover.
Tonight, as we gather to
enact a tradition that unites
us as a single people, the
tradition of Passover, not all
of us will celebrate this
miracle in quite the same
For some, it will be an
evening of warmth, love and
security. But others will
spend this night trembling
... at the thought of a
knock on the door ... or
from pangs of hunger ... or
just from simple loneliness.
At a resettlement center
in Israel, on a famine-
plagued plain in Africa, in a
home for the aged in our
own community, tens of
thousands of our brethren
celebrate in their own ways,
some only in spirit, but
together will be standing
proud as Jews.
In the past months, you
the committed and
conscious-minded people
have helped to wrought new
miracles through your pro-
found generosity to Federa-
tion/UJA, and created
something wonderful for
our people. And for that we
are all grateful.
But, for too many Jews,
here at home and around
the world, they face their
daily existence armed with
little more than hope for a
better tomorrow a hope
that can only be realized if
you care enough to help
through your support.
The need is growing:
In Israel, funds are
urgently required to help
rebuild social programs cut
because of a vicious
economic crises, to renovate
neighborhoods, and to help
realize the dream of a com-
passionate society where
the disadvantaged are not
Around the World,
where our people suffer and
cry out in the night
unable to rescue themselves
without our assistance.

days in isolation or fear,

PARIS The Polish
government has announced its
formal approval of a plan to
remove a Carmelite convent
from the site of the Auschwitz-
Birkenau death camp in
Poland, the World Jewish Con-
gress was informed.
Shayevich, the Chief Rabbi of
Moscow, claimed that Soviet
Jews have complete freedom
to practice their religion.
Shayevich replied to questions
at a session of the United Na-
tions Human Rights Commis-
sion devoted to human rights
and the status of international
human rights covenants. Ac-
cording to Shayevich, who
heads Moscow's Choral
Synagogue, the majority of the
two million Jews in the USSR
are non-believers by choice,
not by force. He said that any
Jew who wished to live by the
laws of Moses and the Torah
was free to do so.
Over and over, the
telephones were dialed; over
and over, more than 300
volunteers asked those who
answered the phone,
"Which of the following
issues concern you the most:
the well-being of Israel, the
local Jewish community, or
programs for Jews in need
around the world?"

"May I say that I have at-
tended countless luncheons,
dinners, and related meetings
during this past year as
general chair for the '87
Federation/UJA campaign,
but none as important as the
intimate gathering tonight."
The words of General Chair-
man Sheldon S. Polish who
recently addressed a number
of Parlor Meetings in the com-

for '87 UJA.
"Because you men and

Temple Beth Am, 7205 Royal
Palm Blvd., Margate.
Special guest speaker will be
Beate Klarsfeld who will pre-
sent, "A Woman of Valor
One Woman's Moral Crusade
Against Nazism."
A Christian, born Beate
Kunzel, in 1939, in Berlin, she
was a child during the Nazi
period. She learned about
Nazism and the horrors its
leaders perpetrated against
the Jewish people only after
her arrival in Paris in 1960 and
her subsequent marriage in
1963 to Serge Klarsfeld, a Jew
whose father had been a
member of the French
Resistance and who died in the
gas chambers of Auschwitz.
Beate's plunge into active
public life began in November
of 1968, when she mounted a
West Berlin podium and
delivered "the slap heard
around the world" to the face
of Kurt-George Kiesinger,
Chancellor of West Germany.
With this public slap, and at
the price of her own arrest and
prison sentence, Beate
Klarsfeld thus focused world
attention on the Nazi leader's

Nazi crimes. This attack on
Kiesinger was only one of a
series of dramatic coups that
had made Beate Klarsfeld a
world-renowned figure and a
leader in the drive to unmask
war criminals now serving
government and industry in
Germany, France and around
the world.
She and her husband, an in-
ternational lawyer discovered
in La Paz the former SS Cap-
tain Klaus Barbie, "the But-
cher of Lyon," who fled to
South America where he was
living a life of ease and com-
fort. Upon revealing his true
identity, she chained herself to
a tree on the main street of La
Paz, flanked by posters detail-
ing his crimes. Due to the
Klarsfelds' intervention, Bar-
bie was finally extradited to
France where he is standing
In another of her famous
escapades, Beate tried to kid-
nap Kurt Lischka, former chief
of Gestapo's Bureau in France.
Beate herself was arrested,
convicted and sentenced to
jail, but one important result
was the promise of Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt to urge the
West German Parliament to
ratify a convention allowing
German courts to try criminals
already convicted in France.
Therefore, the convention was
ratified in January 1975 and
since that time Beate Klarsfeld
obtained in Cologne the judge-
ment and the condemnation
for harsh prison terms of
Lischka, Hagen and
Heinrichsohn responsible for
the deportation of 80,000 Jews
from France.
Vowing that she will not rest
until she has brought to justice
the murderers of millions of
Jews, Beate with her husband
has compiled a list of several
hundred suspected Nazis who
are still at large. The fearless
fighter has also passed out
publicly pro-Israel leaflets in
Morocco at the very time Arab
leaders were meeting. She has
protested in the streets of

There might never have been an Emancipation Proclamation
without a Passover.
On the night of 15 Nisan.approxi-
mately 3200 years ago.a new era in
human history was begun.
On that date,the right and
supremacy of human freedom was
reaffirmed to the peoples of the world.
The Jews.under the leadership of
Moses,put an end to 400 years of slav-
ery imposed upon them by the ancient
Passover is the Festival that com-
memorates that remarkable
marks the birth of the Jews as a free is the reassertion of Jewish
lief that freedom and dignity are
inalienable human rights/That no one,
be he king.dictator or private citizen
has a mandate to oppress or enslave an-
other human being.This commitment
to freedom as expressed by the Passover
is central to the thoughts and ideals
which have become the foundation of
western civilization.
It is the Ethic upon which Abra-
ham Lincoln based the Emancipation
Proclamation issued more than 30
centuries after the Exodus from Egypt.
For Jews.Passover is a time to
reaffirm the faith and morality forged
from the experience of Egyptian
enslavement and redemption.
But the story told in the Hagad-
dah speaks not just to Jews,but to all
people who love freedom and who are
willing to make sacrifices to keep it.
It is a story that strengthens our
resolve as free citizens of a great nation
to stand together and help others who
are less fortunate throughout the world
to reassert their destiny to be free.
Passover is the Festival of Free- is celebrated during the awak-
ening of spring.the rekindling of life.
It renews our faith that someday
there will be liberty for all. It gives us
hope that some day all may live in peace
It' at makes us Jews.

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
Federation Priorities
The writer is a Fort Lauderdale attorney active in our
Young Leadership Group.
As the 1987 Federation campaign reaches its climax, the
issue of how the millions collected will be allocated, is
before us again. Last year it was announced with much fan-
fare that 52 percent of the funds were being sent to Israel.
However, I could not share the same excitement and
satisfaction as the announcement meant to impact.
My involvement with the Jewish Federation goes back
three years when a group of young couples, under the
auspices of Ken Kent, came together to raise their con-
sciousness about their Jewish identity and needs. Today, I
sit on the Board of the Jewish Family Services and on the
Federation Planning and Budget Committee and recently
participated in the budget deliberation of the JCC.
The needs of our local Jewish community are great and
growing each year as our population increases. Yet, our
local Jewish agencies which educate, counsel and settle
Jews and enhance our Jewish culture are told that funds
are limited and last year even were cut back. Yet this year
over $7 million will be collected by the Federation.
It is time that those in the decision making positions
begin to realize that we need to concern ourselves first with
the survival of Judaism in America, because as Rabbi Jacob
Neusner stated in a recent article, America is the new pro-
mised land for Jews, not Israel. And just one month ago we
read in the newspapers how the increasing number of Jews
leaving the Soviet Union do not want to emigrate to Israel,
but are emigrating to the United States. Yet Jewish Family
Services has no money available and none is being made
available by Federation, to settle any of these families in
Broward County. Yet, two years ago we were certainly
quick to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to settle
Ethiopian Jews in Israel.
It has been written all too often how Judaism in America
is a waning religion. So when my two-and-a-half year old
son who attends school at JCC comes home talking about
Shabbat, Chanukah, Purim, etc., he is helping to rein-
troduce the Jewish culture to our family and this occur-
rence being repeated in hundreds of Jewish households in
our community is the building blocks of the future of our
religion and culture. It is to this end that we should be
devoting a far greater portion of our resources.
Years ago in Chicago those with this same philosophy
that reflects the changing realities and needs of Judaism
demonstrated at their Federation Board meetings to at-
tempt to effectuate this change. The time is now here in
Fort Lauderdale to begin a campaign in earnest to have our
priorities reordered because without doing so we will not
have to worry about, Israel, because there will be few Jews
left in America. Please call 741-2800 or 741-0220 to enlist
in this endeavor.
A Statement
From Federation
Recent events have focused considerable media atten-
tion, much of it unfavorable, on Israel and the American
Jewish community.
While many aspects of the events are still not available to
the public, a great deal of the comment directed against
Israel has been both unrealistic and unwarranted. Israel is
a vibrant, vital and open democracy. Through democratic
processes, Israel has addressed painful and difficult issues
before and has always taken correct action one of the
few countries in the world willing and able to do so.
The alliance between the United States and Israel re-
mains strong, and efforts to distort the image of this fun-
damentally sound relationship must be met head on and
Israel and the United States share basic democratic,
spiritual and moral values, and this is a truth that has in-
spired support and pride.
The Pollard affair and the so-called Iranscam must be
seen as exceptions to a rule that has always been followed
by two nations that have cooperated fully in the pursuit of
their mutual interests and concerns.
In the historic context of our two democratic societies,
errors in judgment occur from time to time, but history
suggests that these are rectified quickly.
The officers and board of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale will continue to be deeply com-
mitted to preserving the ties that bind the United States
and Israel and unite the Jewish people,

HAIFA Early on the mor-
ning of Monday, May 4, Israel
Independence Day on the
Hebrew calendar, the torch
will be lit at the grave of David
Ben Gurion at Sde Boker. It
will be handed on to a series of
"runners," including one on
horseback, a Beduin astride a
camel, a bicyclist, and finally a
sprinter who will carry it into
the Ramat Gan Stadium where
50,000 spectators will watch as
the flame will rise to the top of
a high tower. The quadrennial
Hapoel Games, 13th in the
series, will be under way.
This will be the biggest and
the most spectacular of all the
meets that preceded. More
than 2,000 sportsmen from 40
countries will take part, in ad-
dition to some 1,500 Israel
athletes, and about 5,000
members of local youth groups
who will stage mass gymnastic
The Hapoel Games differ
from the Maccabiad in that the
latter is primarily for Jewish
athletes, whereas Hapoel in-
vites the leading sportsmen of
all countries, making this a
truly international event. A
number of world champions
have already indicated their
Not quite as certain will be
the presence of some countries
with which Israel has no
diplomatic relations. Teams
are expected from Hungary,
Poland and Romania; East
Germany had the courtesy to
reply with a flat "no"; as of
this writing, USSR participa-
tion is in doubt. Japan, surpris-
ingly, appears to place political
considerations before the in-
ternational brotherhood of
sport. Morocco and Egypt
have still not replied. If the
Chinese could play ping pong
with the U.S. even prior to
diplomatic relations, could not
an enlightened government in
Beijing send a team to Tel
Aviv? The final list of national
participants will be significant.
For a full week, through the
closing ceremony on May 11,
visitors will have an opportuni-
ty to witness world class
sports competitions, scheduled
to take place in various parts
of the country. Thus, basket-
ball will be played in all three
major cities: fencing will be in
Acre, canoeing in Tiberias on
the Sea of Galilee, chess in
Netanya, handball in Ness
Ziona and Rishon LeZion, judo
and karate in Tel Aviv, rugby
in a number of kibbutzim,
shooting in Herzlia, tug-of-war
in a Druze village, wrestling in
Nazareth with other major
sports similarly scattered
about the land. There will be
20 track and field competi-
tions. One of the new fields to
be introduced this year will be
equestrian events.
In view of Israel's economic
difficulties, is this the time to
stage a major and costly affair
of this nature, we asked Giora
Glaze?, Director of tl
Organizing Committee.
Glazer, a former kibbutz
member, and a graduate of
Wingate Institute, was quick
to point out that the last
Hapoel Games, in 1983, lost no
money, and as things are going
now, they hope to achieve at
least the same this year with
their $3,000,000 budget. The
magnitude of the event, and
Carl Alpert
the enormous international at-

always receive, have drawn

Passover 1943
April 19, 1943 marked the beginning of Passover. It was
cruelly chosen by the Germans for the destruction of what
remained of the Warsaw ghetto. That morning they
entered the ghetto, 2,100 soldiers, including SS troops.
Their arsenal consisted of 13 heavy machine guns, 69 hand-
held machine guns, 135 submachine guns, several
howitzers and other artillery pieces, and 1,358 rifles.
The Jewish remnant of what was once a flourishing
center of Jewish life was determined to resist. They
numbered 1,200 fighters. In comparison they possessed no
heavy machine guns, no hand-held machine guns, 2 sub-
machine guns, no howitzers or other artillery pieces, 17
rifles, and 500 pistols.
Ziva Lubetkin, one of the fighters, recounted, ". .all of a
sudden they started entering the ghetto, thousands armed
as if they were going to the front against Russia. And we,
some 20 men and women, young. And what was our arms?
The arms we had we had a revolver, a grenade and a
whole group had two guns, and some bombs, home-made,
prepared in a very primitive way. We had to light it by mat-
ches and Molotov bottles. It was strange to see those 20
men and women, Jewish men and women, standing up
against the armed great enemy, glad and merry, because
we knew that their end will come. We knew that they will
conquer us first, but to know that for our lives they would
pay a high price.. ." Grenades and bombs were thrown,
and the shocked Germans retreated in disarray. 12 German
soldiers had been killed and a number wounded.
Tuvia Borzykowski, another fighter, came upon Rabbi
Maisel and found him reading the Haggadah to his family
at the Passover seder. The room was in shambles. Outside
the night air resounded with explosions and the rattling of
machine guns.
The Germans returned and began shelling building by
building. Leon Najberg wrote in his diary, "Our brave
defenders are holding out at their posts. Germans in
spite of everything have to fight for access to each house.
Gates of houses are barricaded, each house in ghetto is a
defensive fortress, each flat is a citadel Jewish defenders
are showering missiles from flats' windows and throwing
shells at bandits."
Feigele Peltel, in hiding on the "Aryan" side of the ghet-
to wall, described the killings, "On the balcony of the se-
cond floor a woman stood wringing her hands. She disap-
peared into the building but returned a moment later, car-
rying a child and dragging a featherbed, which she flung to
the pavement to break her fall. Clutching her child, she
started to climb over the railing. A spray of bullets caught
her midway the child dropped to the street the woman's
body dangled lifeless from railing."
Dismay set in when the Germans decided to bomb the
ghetto from afar. All the plans for hand-to-hand combat
were foiled. By the end of the first week in May, the focus
of resistance was 18 Mila Street, where 120 fighters had
gathered. Knowing that the end was near, some committed
suicide. Others were killed, but a few managed to escape.
SS General Jurgen Stroop calculated that 7,000 Jews had
been killed in the fighting, 30,000 were deported to
Trebhnka, and five to six hundred were "destroyed by be-
ing blown up or by perishing in the flames."
It would be almost another two years to the day before
Adolph Hitler would take his own life in a bunker in Berlin.
May we remember this Passover those Jews who gave
their lives to be Jewish and those that still yearn for the
right to practice openly their Judaism, a gift all too often
taken for granted.

Young Leadership Retreat
May 1-3
"There are Jews with
serious needs, here at home, in
Israel and around the world,
who depend on the Jewish
community, and only we are
their answer for help."
Brian J. Sherr, Federation
president in his midyear report
to the '87 Federation/UJA
leadership explained, "That
more in 1987, our UJA cam-
paign dollar is needed to pro-
vide the vital social welfare
and humanitarian programs.
Looking toward our
brethren in Israel, the Jewish
Agency, UJA major
beneficiary, is expected to end
the fiscal year with a deficit of
$40 million. Because the U.S.
dollar is weak in relation to
both European currencies and
the shekel, when the Agency
exchanges dollars for shekels,
they are getting fewer shekels
to maintain the same level of
The situation is compounded
by Israel's inflation which has
a more drastic impact on the
Jewish Agency than the
statistical averages would in-
dicate. The bulk of the
Agency's expenditures are in
areas that have shown the
highest cost increases this
year: student maintenance in
Youth Aliyah and unless our
campaign raises and collects
enough to cover this year's
deficit, new year's programs
will suffer. Youth Aliyah will
face a dramatic cutback in the
number of children who can be
admitted. Also sorely needed
settlements in the Galilee and
Negev regions will not be built,
and hundreds of immigrants
will wait one more year for
permanent housing.
On the homefront, we are

Jewish Television Magazine Celebrates Passover and Spring
Passover is a favorite Jewish
holiday to many people not on-
ly because it is a celebration of
freedom but because it coin-
cides with the arrival of spr-
ing. The April edition of
'Jewish Television
Magazine," a monthly
magazine-format program pro-
duced by the Council of Jewish
Federations, celebrates both
the holiday and its season.
The program airs locally on
cable television. It begins by
retracing the steps of the
Children of Israel as they
wandered, according to the ac-
count in Exodus, through the
Sinai Desert for 40 years
before arriving at the Promis-
ed Land. To this day, as the
first segment of the program
shows, one can find in that
rugged terrain evidence of the
kind of life those wanderers
must have led.
Pictured are members of Panel Two who attended a recent
meeting on the allocations; seated from left, Samuel K. Miller,
David Sommer, Alan Levy, Chairman; standing, from left are
Jeffrey Streitfeld, Kerry Kuhn and Dr. David Sachs, who is
president of the Jewish Family Service ofBroward County.
Planning and Budget Committee
The Federation's Planning
and Budget committee is conti-
nuing its endeavors even
though the fiscal recommenda-
tions for the 1988 agency
allocations have already been
made to the Board of Direc-
tors. The committee has the
responsibility of making deter-
minations of the overall needs
of the Jewish community of
North Broward County and
then making recommendations
as to how these needs are to be
met. The committee will be
meeting with all of the leaders
to assess the priority needs
that will make the Greater
Fort Lauderdale area a better
place to live.
The committee represents a
cross-section of the Jewish
community with a wide variety
of local residents participating
in this most important activity.
One can also find today
modern factories that make
the matzo the flat unleaven-
ed bread which those
ancestors, in their rush to
leave Egypt, were obliged to
eat and which we still eat to-
day on Passover. The second
segment of the program takes
viewers to see how this ancient
food is baked today.

gram highlignts a seder en-

Cabinet have pledged to lead
congregational groups on
visits to Israel in 1987.
The Rabbis made their

our-day conference (Feb.
7-10) which was organized by
Israel Bonds, the Israel
Government Ministry of
Tourism and El Al Israel
Airlines in a joint effort to pro-
mote tourism to Israel among
North American Jewry.
The Rabbis ended the con-
ference with a moving
ceremony at the Western
Wall. They had each earlier
signed a Proclamation of
Rededication resolving to
organize delegations and
declaring that "visits to Israel
are an important aspect of
building the economy of the
Jewish State."

In deference to the spring
season, a time often thought
peculiarly conducive to falling
in love, the longest segment of
the program focuses on ways
in which single Jewish people
are being introduced to one
another in Jewish settings in
Miami, Baltimore and
Washington, D.C. Part of the
segment features Senator
Rudy Boschwitz of Minnesota,
together particularly to
celebrate Jewish holidays
which they might otherwise
have to face alone.
The program also celebrates
the joyousness of the season
and the holiday with a couple
of musical selections by a
popular band called Selah,
formerly known as the
Diaspora Yeshiva Band.

The teenagers came from
Coral Springs, Margate, Plan-

celebrate Purim as only
teenagers can ... with the
Fist Annual Mad Hatter's

teenagers across North
Broward met to dance the
night away as well as witness a
new program by youth direc-
tor Aley Sheer called Rock 'n
Roll Judaism.
Coordinated by the newly
formed North Broward Jewish
Youth Directors Council, the
Purim Ball, held on Thursday,
March 19, was the group's
first effort at heightening the
Jewish message for Broward's
teens. Sharon S. Horowitz of
the Central Agency for Jewish
Education explained that "it is
our hope that our teenagers in
affiliated youth groups will br-
ing their non-affiliated friends
in contact with these Jewish
events." As co-chairwoman
and originator of the Broward
Jewish Youth Directors Coun-
cil (JYDC) Horowitz explained
that the group will provide in-
service education to area
youth directors as well as coor-
dinate special events for area

One need not win success,

The Women of Pesach
The young girl who watches
her baby brother float silently
down stream in a woven
basket could hardly imagine
the impact on history she
would have. Most of the stories
pertaining to the exodus of the
Jews from the land of Egypt
have focused on that baby, in-
stead. Indeed Elie Wiesel call-
ed Moses, "the most powerful
hero in biblical history."
Where would he have been
without his sister, Miriam, and
the other women involved in
the flight from slavery to
freedom? They are the unsung
heros of the story. Let us final-
ly recognize some of them.
The king of Egypt decrees
that the Hebrew midwives put
all newborn Israelite boys to
death. Shifra and Puah, the
two midwives, let the children
live and when questioned by
pharaoh they answer,
"Hebrew women are not like
Egyptian women: they are
vigorous. Before the midwife
can come to them, they have
given birth." (Exodus 1:19).
There is a Midrash which gives
us ample proof that it was only
the aid of the midwives which
helped the Jewish women to
continue having families in the
midst of terrible oppression.
Looking for another method
of displaying his cruelty, the
king decides all Hebrew male
babies should be drowned in
the Nile. When a baby boy,
later called Moses, is born to
Yocheved she hides him for
three months. At that time,
she waterproofs a wicker
basket, wraps her baby in it,
and hides him in the reeds of
the Nile. Her older daughter,
Miriam, is conveniently posi-
tioned close by to be sure no
harm would come to him. The
daughter of pharaoh, bathing
in the cool water, finds the
baby. Realizing that he must a
Hebrew, she decides to take
him to the palace. There upon
Miriam suddenly makes her
presence known and instantly
offers to find a nurse for the
baby. Yocheved is hired to br-
ing up the child and thus rears
her own offspring as the son of
the princess of Egypt. Miriam
makes her presence felt
throughout the life of her more
famous brothers, Moses and
Aaron. It is said that she and
the other women actually
danced and played timbrels
when the Jews crossed the
Red Sea.
After a life in the palace, as
the grandson of the king,
Moses is forced to leave Egypt
when he rejects the beating of
his fellow Israelites. While in
neighboring Midian, Moses
marries a woman named
Tziporah. During their return
journey to Egypt a strange in-
cident takes place. G-d sudden-
ly besieges the family and is
only averted when Tziporah
understands the problem. This
daughter of a Midianite priest
takes it upon herself to circum-
cise her own son. Moses
himself seems to have forgot-
ten to attend to this important
ritual ... the very sign of the
covenant between G-d and
At the Seder ceremony we
read the story of the
deliverance from Egypt. But
certain details are usually left
untold. The book of Exodus
(3:21-22) says, 'And I will
dispose tne Egyptians
favorably toward this people,
so that when you go, you will
not go away empty-handed.
Each woman shall borrow
from her neighbor and the
lodger in her house objects of
silver and gold, and clothing,
and you shall put these on your
sons and daughters, thus strip-
ping the Egyptians." Yet in a
related story a short time
later, the Jewish women would
not part with their jewels in
order to fashion a golden calf
for the men to worship. How
many of us ever wondered
where former slaves got
enough gold to make a statue?
As leader, Moses was re-
quired to answer many dif-
ficult questions during the 40
years in the desert. For exam-
ple, a man named Tzlofchod
had five daughters. These girls
had no brothers. When their
father died they insisted that
they had the right to inherit
from him. Although Moses
tried to find an answer, he
could not respond. History
states that he turned to G-d.
The proclamation came down
that, indisputably, daughters
may benefit from bequests of
their fathers.
Clearly women have left
their mark on the story of
Pesach. But what of Pesach to-
day? Why are there only four
. sons? We should ultimately
admit to the importance of
daughters and write a Hag-
gadah that acknowledges that
families do have female
children who are able to ask
auestions. Women have long
one most of the work
associated with Passover ...
the cooking ... the cleaning
. .. changing the dishes, pots,
pans, etc. yet it is the men who
do the 'inspection' with a
feather and candle to see that
SHE did a meticulous job. Dur-
ing the seder dinner the
women historically cook and
serve and bring water for men
to wash their hands. Perhaps,
this year, women should have
specially embroidered pillows
to recline on at the table for
this particular dinner.

their contribution to the

lead of Billy Rubin, High
School of Judaica and
Sharon Horowitz and the
Hillelites who were there
from day to dust on the
phones, collecting cards and
doing their part.
Many volunteers stayed
past their assigned dialing
sessions, according to
Gladys Daren, chairman,
who was elated with the
spirit, camaraderie and fun-
filled excitement created by
the day's activities.
Some of the comments
she said included, "I'm on a
roll. Super Sunday brings
people together for a com-
mon cause. Most people I've
talked to are expecting the
call and are very nice.
It was a fun time filled
with purpose. The blue and
white bedecked room
featured the live radio-
remote of Mike Roberts
broadcasting live over
WFTL, while 'guys and
gals' filled the fishbowl with
heartfelt gifts collected dur-
ing the day. This was the
place to be. This is where it
was happening.
Volunteers spoke of big
and small pledges alike. A
woman said that she receiv-
ed a $10 pledge from a
single parent supporting
two children, obviously
struggling, but insisting on
showing she cared for her
brethren. Grandparents
pledged $100 in honor of
their grandchildren's for-
thcoming Bar and Bat Mitz-
vahs, one man said he was
waiting for the annual call
and responded with $500
and one caller surprised the
phone team when he an-
nounced a check for $1,000
is in the mail.
The importance of Super
Sunday to the Jewish com-
munity was recognized by
the many city officials par-
ticipating throughout the
Mayor Kaminsky of
Lauderhill made up the
honor roll of city officials
who hit the horns in their
quest for funds.
General chairman Sheldon
S. Polish said, "All in all, it
was a beautiful day for our
Jewish community. But our
fund-raising efforts are not
over this year. We now have
to collect all the money
necessary to help support
the organizations funded by
the Federation. This year
we're trying to reach out
and involve all the people in
our 22-area community than
ever before. If you were not
called on Super Sunday, but
would like to contribute, you
can do so by calling the
Federation at 748-8400."

Jacob Brodzki, chairman of
the Federation's Foundation
of Jewish Philanthropies, has
announced that Felice Sincoff
Prensky has established the
Dr. Arthur B. Sincoff Scholar-
ship Fund in memory of her
late husband. Money from this
fund will be earmarked for an
enrichment program for
women in Federation's Project
Renewal city, Kfar Saba.
"Felice has set an example
for all to follow," stated Jacob
Brodzki, "by setting up this
Fund, she is perpetuating
forever, the memory of a loved
one who has passed away."
Felice will act as a' trustee
for this Fund, which was con-
tributed to by friends and
family, and will make recom-
mendations as to where the
money should be used. The
Foundation will grant this
money and ultimately the final
decision will be at the discre-
tion of officials of Kfar Saba,
who, by living there, know ex-
actly what is needed most.
Originally from New York,
Felice and her late husband
Arthur were active in every
aspect of Jewish affairs.
"Education was very impor-
tant to Arthur," Felice stated.
"It is this reason that I recom-
mended the funds be used to
educate women in Kfar Saba.
The funds will teach women
some of the basics; health,
hygiene and they in turn, will
be able to teach their own
Felice Sincoff Prensky
families. "Serving as Project
Renewal chair is Alvera A.
Gold who was delighted at the
news. "I want to praise Felice
for her continuing concern and
commitment for the develop-
ment of today's women."
"Having been so involved
with Federation's Women's
Division, I realize the impor-
tance of the woman's role. I
feel indeed fortunate that
there is a foundation to enable
all this to happen. I hope
others will do the same," sne

Pesach: Our Festival of Freedom
Temple Beth Israel Rally
Our Feast of Freedom,
Pesach, is a time when we are
asked to examine the relation-
ship between freedom and
social responsibility. Against
the background of "We were
slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt,"
Mordecai Kaplan wrote:
When we look to God as
the Power that makes for
freedom we expect that
He will give mankind no
rest until it puts an end to
the order of social living
which makes it possible for
a human being to be
drudging and slaving for
aims in which he has no
part or parcel.
We are slaves to Pharaoh as
long as we remain participants
in projects which we have not
made our own; and we are
traitors to our historical con-
sciousness when we do not
protest the enslavement of
others. We who live in the free
world enjoy unprecedented
freedoms but in our enjoyment
of these freedoms it is very
easy to forget about our
brothers and sisters who are
not so fortunate. Especially
during Pesach we should recall
our brothers and sisters in
Soviet Union, Ethiopia, Syria
and elsewhere, and resolve to
do all in our power to aid them
in their struggle for freedom.
We can join in symbolic actions
such as keeping an empty chair
at our Seder or reciting the
"Matzah of Hope" and we can
also raise, our voices in protest
by writing to representatives
of the governments which op-
press our people as well as to
our own Senators and Con-
gress people.
Nor can we forget those in
our own community who are
hungry and homeless during
this time when we recite "Let
all who are hungry come and
eat." Through charitable con-
tributions to our own Federa-
tion, the United Way and
other agencies we insure that
those who are in need during
this holiday season will receive
the means to "make Pesach."
The Rabbis of North
Broward extend to you and
your family best wishes for a
happy and kosher Pesach and
hope that you will use this op-
portunity to bring God s
goodness into our world.

Israel '87 Impressions
Each trip to Israel is unique.
The beauty, emotions, sights,
excitement, and people remain
the same, but the challenges
and the tensions change. This
trip, my tenth, was highlighted
by the Hadassah Diamond
Jubilee Mission. Two thousand
people from all over the world
journeyed to a rededication of
75 years of health care and na-
tion building. Through the
course of events, Hadassah's
place in prestate Israel and
since statehood demonstrated
to us and to the people of
Israel the constancy of the
dedication of 385,000
American Women. Tribute
was paid to the foresight of the
leaders of Hadassah from
Henrietta Szold, our founder,
through to Ruth Popkin, the
current National President.
The more than 2.5 million
women who have been
members of Hadassah over the
Eeriod of 75 years were
onored at the exhibit produc-
ed and displayed at Beth
Hatefutsoth (Museum of the
Diaspora) which will tour the
United States 1987-88. The
display is a chronology of
events which intertwined
Hadassah and the State of
Israel until today. Visits to
Hadassah University Hospital
on Mount Scopus, Kiryat
Hadassah and the Moshe Shar-
ret Institute of Oncology at
Ein Karem, the Seligsberg-
Brandeis Comprehensive High
School, Hadassah Community
College, Hadassah Neurim
(Youth Aliyah village) and
Jewish National Fund forests
thrust us into the present and
future as our efforts in nation
building continue. Shabbat
Dinner with Young Judaeans
in Israel on the Hashachar
Year Course brought home the
reality of Jewish life in
America and the need to con-
stantly reinforce Zionism in
our teaching of Judaism.
Tensions between Israel and
the United States were ap-
parent. As Shimon Peres, Yit-
zhak Rabin and Yitzhak
Shamir took their turns on our
platform, each made impor-
tant foreign policy statements
intended to ease the pressure.
Natan Scharansky spoke in his
own inimitable way saying we
should be strong and constant
like his wife A vital in our sup-
port of Refuseniks. He called
again for massive demonstra-
tion in Washington if and
when President Reagan and
Gorbachev meet.
I could not deny the oppor-
tunity to attend the trial of
Demjanjuk. It was a brief walk
from the Hilton to the Bi-
nyanei Ha'ooma. Every day
the Israeli papers carry full
reports. But to be there was to
be witness to history. As I
entered the room with the
translation cassett I had the
feeling of theater. On the
stage were the three judges,
defense counsel with Demjan-
juk and his son constantly
behind him. A translator into
Ukrainian along with guards
at his side. Prosecutors and
witness. But the audience was
filled with young people who
had cut school or come with
teachers, young soldiers, sur-
vivors and families of sur-
vivors, people from all over
Israel and others like myself.
It was almost as though this
was the first and maybe the
last time these people would
hear personal testimony on the
Holocaust. The theater was
the reality.
Purim in Israel is a time
when adults and children dress
up and laugh away the sounds
of Hamen. And Hadassah in-
stituted a new tradition to
Jerusalem. A Purim Parade
with over 2,000 people from
the United States along with
many Israelis, Teddy Kollek
and Hadassah President Ruth
Popkin as marshals wowed the
Jerusalemites. They said
Hadassah was indeed powerful
for it didn't rain on our parade.
For it had been raining and
sleeting all over Israel. Taking
the bus to Ber Sheba for a visit
with friends I saw the desert
blooming with purple, blue,
yellow and red flowers with
erass and trees bright green.
What a change in the city since
I had been there last. It has
grown from 80,000 people to
160,000. The rain was good
luck for the couple whose wed-
ding I attended in Tel Aviv. A
wedding of Israel's Sephardic
community as the family came
to Israel originally from Libya.
Attending Shabbat services
at the Conservative
Synagogue and the Hebrew
Union College Synagogue
gave me a feeling of the
oneness of all of Israel. Walk-
ing through the Notre Dame
de Zion Monastery at Ein
Karem with a sister who is try-
ing to bring tolerance and
peace among the Christian
sects and is working toward
greater understanding bet-
ween Arab Christian and Jew
filled me with a feeling of
I left Israel knowing the pro-
blems facing our brothers and
sisters there and here in the
United States. I left Israel
with the feeling that many
people are working toward
solving these problems,
Hadassah women included.
That Israel is only going to be
39 years old and has solved so
many problems already. With
effort and patience more will
be solved. I left knowing that
the work of my hands is
toward the goal of peace,
understanding and nation
building. I left thinking, this
trip was truly unique.

for our shrinking number,"
said Langner. He said

"We are losing the battle,"
Langner asserts. "You need

people who live in this
"What has been worse," he
added, "is that a weakened
Jewish commitment has made
us easy prey for the various
evangelistic and cultist move-

sometimes filling a need that
we in our blindness have never
sought to address."

They Came From 22 Area Communities to Raise
Record Funds For Federation /UJA 50 Plus Agencies and Beneficiaries
'Hats Off For A Super Effort
North Broward County On Super Sunday March 22nd
Helping A World of Jewish Needs Super Sunday Teammates
Gladys Daren, chairman of
the Federation's annual phon-
a-thon, Super Sunday, ex-
pressed her deep gratitude and
appreciation to the members
of the North Broward com-
munity as well as the members
of the business community for
all the cooperation and con-
sideration she received in mak-
ing Super Sunday the most
successful to date.
"Not only did we have extra
volunteers to mann the phones
on March 22, we had more
food and drink than we knew
what to do with," Daren
stated. "Super Sunday was a
total community effort and the
community can be very proud
of the results over $100,000
raised to meet the needs of
Jews here in North Broward,
in Israel and worldwide."
Helping to spare the Federa-
tion some very important
dollars were John Turner of
Albertson's who generously
donated soda; Bob Steele of
Publix who also donated soda;
the Sunrise Kosher Market for
their donation of fish platters;
the Flakowitz Family Bakery,
Stern's Bakery and the Family
Bakery for their generous
donations of baked goods.
Thanks also were extended
to Seymour Wildman and his
staff at the Tamarac Jewish
Center for, once again, making
the Federation and its
volunteers feel right at home.
Kudos to the Jewish Center's
David Waldman and his Colla-
tion Committee and Temple
executive director Arthur
Hats off to the phone com-
panies of Southern Bell, who
helped with the cables for the
phones and for AT and T and
their Rep. Judy Mason for
helping Federation purchase
the phones used at a special
discount rate.
The day would not have been
complete without the hilarious
antics of our resident clowns
Aaron Harel and Roger

whose responsibilities ranged
from looking up phone
numbers, to serving the food,
to actually calling their
counterparts for commitments
to the '87 campaign.

Commitment to Excellence
Federation/UJA Way $6 Plus Million Raised to Help World Jewry
"Six million and counting .."
What a better way to achieve life-saving gifts than to an-
nounce that a record breaking dollar total has been raised
in the first 3 months of 1987 for the Federation/United
Jewish Appeal.
In a special interview with the Floridian, Sheldon S.
Polish, general chairman, praised the tireless work of hun-
dreds of team volunteers and the heartfelt generosity of
tens of thousands of contributors who have helped to raise
urgently needed gifts to aid welfare and humanitarian pro-
grams in North Broward County, in Israel and other lands
around the world.
Polish said, "Through your profound giving and staunch
determination to reach our life-giving totals, we have ac-
complished a first for our young cmmunity. And it is indeed
fitting to have fulfilled our responsibility as Jews at this the
beginning of our 20th Anniversary year. For it is some 20
years ago that a handful of dedicated and committed men
and women set forth to bring about a central organization
within the Greater Fort Lauderdale community, which to-
day stands at the forefront of providing urgently needed
funds for all of our brethren in need."
In extolling the praise, Polish named his team of more
than 40 campaign cabinet leaders whose expertise and
guidance in major areas and divisions accounted for this
magnificent success.
"This, however, does not mean that the task is over," he
said, "or our job is done." "This is the furthest thing from
the truth and now the truly hardwork begins. It will take a
super effort to finalize the remaining dollars. We need to
reach more givers and involve more volunteers. This is our
major priority if we are to strengthen our entire Jewish
Polish indicated that 'phone squads' representing the
22-Areas are working diligently at Federation Head-
quarters in an effort to procure pledges in a final clean-up
drive, and calls on residents to answer the call to put the
goal for '87 in reach.

'Super Saturday Nite' Fun Happening Event March 21
Features 'Guys and Gals' in Chic Attire for '87 UJA
It was an evening of outstan-
ding fun and good cheer as
young people from all over the
community attended the
Federation's first-ever Super
Saturday Night event.
The gymnasium on the
Perlman Campus of the
Samuel and Helene Soref
Jewish Community Center
was transformed into a sea of
black and white. Balloon ar-
ches spanned the room as a
black tie glistened in front of
tne stage. Many of the party-
goers donned their favorite
black and white outfits, com-
plete with black bow tie.
Not to be lost in this evening
of excitement was the purpose
to support the 1987 Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign. A minimum
commitment of $250 was re-
quired for attendance.
In a unique fund-raising ef-
fort, the entire group linked
arms and swayed to the sounds
of the popular, "We Are the
World," tune, led by Federa-
tion executive director Ken-
neth B. Bierman.
"It was so wonderful to see
so much excitement and en-
thusiasm on everyone's face,"
stated Howard Horowitz,
Super Saturday Night chair-
man. "The entire evening,
from start to finish, was truly
a success in every sense of the

Sherwin H. Roaenstein, Executive
I was bom 25 years ago. My
parents, the Jewish men and
women of our community,
placed their hopes, faith, and
expectations in my future. I
was groomed from birth to
help individuals and families to
more adequately cope with
problems so that they can en-
joy a more meaningful and
rewarding life. I was taught to
accomplish these goals by
facilitating individual and
family growth through
counseling and education. My
philosophy has always been
based upon the view that the
family is the "cradle of ex-
istence" the building block
and moral basis of society
which connects us all to our
past, present, and future.
My youthful years were very
difficult. My allowance was
meager, and I functioned with
minimal help. My home, a
small second floor suite in cen-
tral Hollywood was neither
glamorous nor private. How I
yearned for the day when I
would have independence and
a sense of self-respect which
comes from functioning on a
higher level and developing
one's own potential.
From the time of my birth, I
was taught to provide my ser-
vices with Masters' Degree
Social Workers who completed
60 graduate credits and logged
2,000 supervised hours in field
training. The majority of
counseling in the United
States is conducted by such
professionals. By 1975, there
was still only four social
workers to help the Jewish
population of Broward Coun-
ty. This was a mammoth task;
analogous to David's plight
with Goliath or parting the
Red Sea. In those early days, I
never heard about ADDS. I was
busy helping the elderly secure
appropriate housing; counsel-
ing children, individual adults
and married couples; pro-
viding minimal family life
education; referral and
assistance; and if time permit-
ted, some home visits.
As I matured and the years
passed, I heard a myriad of sad
stories and difficult situations.
My walls resonated with the
roller coaster of emotions
which people feel under stress.
I became more sophisticated in
dealing with individuals who
were experiencing all kinds of
crises and who came to my
door for help. The reward for
my services grew so that I had
to ask my relatives and
friends, the Jewish Federa-
tions and United Way for in-
creased financial support. The
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale fortunately
bridged the gap which allowed
me to more adequately service
the northern part of the Coun-
ty. All of my supporters believ-
ed in my cause and indeed
came through for me.
My roots in the community
began to firmly take hold. By
the early 1980s, I was housed
in two enlarged offices
Hollywood and Fort Lauder-
dale. By 1986, I employed a
large support staff and 21
social workers. I became a
viable resource to my com-
munity. I have learned to work
with local agencies as well as
with independent practitioners
to provide my clients with the
high quality care that they
would expect when they come
to Jewish Family Service.
I've never been rich and
never will be! I never made a
dime for profit! As a non-profit
organization however, I can
take pride in my work by wat-
ching and following the
children, women, and men who
ieave my offices to become
more happy and productive
citizens of our community.
On May 3, I will be
celebrating my 25th birthday.
Although I am still young, I am
very mature. I can state at this
time that "I have self-respect
and that I am functioning
I would be honored if all of
you would join me in a birth-
day celebration with my staff,
board of directors, and other
friends and relatives who have
helped and supported me all
these years. *We are truly
one," and it is this fact that
ties us together in our past,
present, and future.

The Feast of Passover
Observed from 15-23 Nisan
(March or April), but only the
first and last days are full
holidays. It commemorates the
Exodus of the Jews from
Egypt, the beginning of
Jewish independence
The name refers to God's
"passing over" the homes of
the Jews when He sent
plagues to convince the Egyp-
tian Pharaoh to let them go.
The ordered meal Seder
.. held on the first and se-
cond nights.
At the meal The Story of Ex-
odus in a book called the Hag-
gadah is read, and special
Passover prayers are said.
Matzot (flat, crisp,
unleavened bread) recalls
that the Jews left Egypt so
hurriedly the bread didn t have
time to rise.
Maror (bitter herbs) and salt
water symbolize the Jews
suffering in Egypt.
4 Cups of Wine drunk by
Charoseth (chopped apples,
nuts, and wine) recalls the
mortar Jewish slaves mixed
for Pharaoh's monuments.
Karpas (greens) stand for
the new spring
Elijah's Cup, containing
Passover wine, is set aside and
the door opened to welcome
the prophet Elijah, whose
spirit visits every Seder.

Use This Prayer to
Make Your Holiday Special.
On this night, as we raise our cups,
let us give thanks to the Holy One,
hlessed be He, for the modern-day
miracle of the redemption of our
brothers and sisters from their
centuries of bondage in Ethiopia
and return to Zion. And let us
remember in pain those not yet
set free.
We have the power to be the last
generation of oppressed Jews.
For alone in our hands rests the
strength to rip from our shoulders
the yoke of bondage.
May we be worthy to enjoy the
holiday together with the Whole
Family of Israel, in freedom and
in unity.

So Much to So Many

We are the Jews,

Throughout history, compassion
has been our most constant value.
Thanks to us, more than 20,000 Ethiopian
Jews are now living in Israel. Thanks to
us, Soviet Jews have a prayer of freedom.
Thanks to us, the American Jewish com-
munity is stronger than ever.
Of course, we understand that our greatest
challenges still lie ahead. In Israel, a new
generation of pioneers needs our help to
realize a modern vision of compassion.
Here at home, our help is the key to so many
programs helping so many of our people.
But we will respond. And the reason is not

Fort Lauderdale, receiving
funds from the annual United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
January's Volunteer of the
month is one winter wonder
"Schnay Vyse and De Zibben
Groyseh Pitchenkeh Ment-
shalach!" The JCC staff
departs from its usual pro-
cedures this time by naming
one giant volunteer effort
(instead of one volunteer), the
result of the time, talent and
devotion of more than 70 men
and women who joined
together to produce one win-
ner of a show. Enjoyed by
close to 6,000 people between
last May's performances and
its recent run this past

is alive and well and here to
Under the direction of
writers-producers Rae and

crew started working on the
show six months before then-

Says Laura Hochman, Direc-
tor of JCC Senior Adult Ac-
tivities, "Never in all the years
I have been involved in com-
munity theater, have I ever
heard such raves for any pro-
duction. People have gone out
of their way to call us, write
letters and drop in to tell us
how much they enjoyed the
show and to find out where
and when and what we're do-
ing next."
Say Rae and Jack Fishman,
"Considering that we meet on-
ly twice a week, Tuesday after-
s+. noon and Thursday night, to
rehearse those few months, I
think we accomplished
miracles. It's only because the
whole volunteer cast and crew,
all "senior" adults with great
talent, loved what they were

Thats why we do more open
heart surgery than anyone eke.''
Few surgical procedures are
more critical to life itself than open
heart surgery. And, clearly, there are
few procedures where the experience
of the physician is more critical, more
So if you must have open heart
surgery, it should be of great comfort
to know that, led by Dr. James Jude,
the surgeons at The North Ridge
Heart Institute perform more open
heart procedures than any other hos-
pital in South Florida.
In fact, over 4,000 people have
come to us for open heart surgery in
the last 10 years. For the experience
of our physicians. And the excellence
of our care.
Because along with our physi-
cians, Cardiovascular Clinical Nurse
Specialists give individual attention
and support to you and your family
throughout your hospital stay.
And after surgery, a comprehen-
sive rehabilitation program helps you
return to your normal life as quickly
as possible.
But we'd rather help you avoid
open heart surgery entirely. So we
offer one of the most advanced diag-
nostic testing and alternative treat-
ments available. Backed by the exper-
tise of Dr. Ali Ghohramani, who has
toll-free. And if you don't have a
physician, we'll help you find one.
At AMI North Ridge Medical
Center, we believe you should accept
nothing less than expert cardiac care.
Because your health can only be as
sound as your heart.
The North Ridge Heart Institute/^MI North Ridge Medical Center
performed more than 10,000 cardiac
catheterizations and over 600 balloon

Anniversary with a gala
At the celebration, Nor-

How to Describe
Passover to Non-Jews
In 1987, Passover begins April 14.
Passover is history's first freedom festival.
Ordained in the Bible, it celebrates the exodus from
Egyptian slavery.
It is also an opportunity to welcome the advent of Spring.
As such it is one of the three agricultural festivals dating
back to Biblical days. The others are Tabernacles (Sukkot)
connected with the autumn harvest, and Pentecost
(Shavuot) identified with the first fruits of the Spring
Passover is observed with worship services, including
special prayers glorifying liberty, the miracle of nature
reborn and the inspiration which we receive from leaders
who respond to the divine message about human equality.
A unique observance associated with Passover is the
Seder (pronounced Sayder), which is a home worship ser-
vice around the dinner table held on the first two nights of
the holiday (by the Orthodox and Conservative) and on the
first night (by some Reform).
The Seder is a family or communal gathering at which
the events of the Exodus are remembered and during
which each individual attempts to recapture the anguish of
servitude and the joy of deliverance.
From a special Passover book called the Haggadah ("The
Narrative") the breakaway from Pharaoh is retold. Bless-
ings are recited. Songs are sung. Even table games are
played and an atmosphere of jubilation and reverence is
created. Ceremonial foods are held up and their symbolism
explained: the matzah, or dried cracker, is eaten to get an
idea of the meager food which the disadvantaged eat; a
sprig of parsley betokens the Springtime; wine is an
emblem of human sweetness; a bitter herb stands for the
bitterness of slavery.
The New Testament Last Supper was a Seder (a Hebrew
word meaning Order or Procedure). At that time a new
significance was given to the matzah and the wine; thus
originated communion or the Eucharist.
Some of the Biblical references to Passover are Exodus
12:3; Leviticus 23.4; Number 9, and Deuteronomy 16.
Among the New Testament references are Matthew 26.19;
Mark 14.12; Luke 22.7, and John 13.#

because they're made in accordance with strict Orthodox
Rabbinical requirements. Ones that make them as kosher and as
blessed as your Seder.
From all of us at Manischewitz, a happy, zissen Pesach.
