They include:
Marvin Stein, chairman

In explaining the value of
this reorganization, Oshry
and Small indicated that,
"Since the inception of the
Federation/UJA, the coun-
try club communities have
always responded with a
heartfelt generosity in sup-
port of their Jewish
brethren. We know that
under the new structuring
of the Federation campaign
team, and the guidance and
direction of the divi-
sion/area chairmen, we will
not only raise un-
precedented dollars, but at
the same time, be more ef-
fective in our fund-raising
techniques and approaches,
reaching both current club
residents and new arrivals."
"It is extremely urgent
that this transformation
takes place at this time, as
we finalize our second
decade of giving, on the way
to $10 million by 1990," said
the leaders. "With the cam-

to do with all the new arrivals.

the assembly," Wiener stated.

TEL AVIV The largest single group of Soviet Jewish im-
migrants to arrive in five years landed at Ben Gurion Airport on
July 19. The 42 men, women and children came on a flight from
Moscow via Vienna. The size of the group surprised Jewish Agen-
cy personnel waiting at the airport. The group included several
former activists for Jewish and Zionist rights in the USSR.
TEL AVIV Foreign diplomatic sources quoted by Maariv
said Syria will soon receive Soviet MIG-29 aircraft. According to
the paper, this will change the balance of air power between
Israel and Syria. Experts said the arrival of the MIG-29s in the
region would return the situation to what it was in 1967 when
Israel's French-built Mirage jets were opposed by Egyptian
MIG-21s from the Soviet Union.
TEL AVIV Cancer afflicts 8,500 Israelis each year, and
5,150 Israelis die of it annually, according to Health Minister
Shoshana Arbelli-Almoslino. She said 30 percent of the cancer
deaths were the result of smoking. Breast cancer accounted for
28 percent of the cancer cases among women.
JERUSALEM The Jewish Agency will send a Hebrew
teacher to Zagreb, Yugoslavia, the organization's first official
emissary to Yugoslavia ever, it was learned. The Agency's
Department for Education in the diaspora will send the teacher to
the city in which about 2,000 of Yugoslavia's 5,000 Jews live.

Women's Division
National Survey We've Come A Long Way ...
Women Play An Integral
Role in Federation
Barbara Wiener remembers the
days when a Jewish Federation
president would request a report
from the Women's Division by
asking, "Do the ladies have
anything to say?" Such blatant
chauvinism has gone the way of
front-porch swings and cartoons
before movies. Women do hold
leadership positions, and the
climate is improving.
A 1986 national survey by the
Council of Jewish Federations
showed that one in five Federa-
tion presidents are women
three times as many as in 1975.
The percentage of women
treasurers during that time in-
creased eight-fold, to one in four.
The number of women officers
and board members jumped 66
percent, to nearly three in ten.
Locally, two of twelve lay of-
ficers are women. Six more
women are directors, and many
more serve on standing and
special events committees.
"I think it's changing for the
better, but not to the extent that
it should," says Wiener, who is a
director of Federation and
Women's Division.
Women's Division president
Alvera Gold agrees. "Historically,
Fort Lauderdale Federation has
been male dominated." As presi-
dent of Women's Division, Gold is
automatically awarded a seat on
the Executive Committee of
Federation, but she said she made
it clear to the nominating commit-
tee that she would not accept a
token or automatic appointment.
"It was very difficult," she said.
... "I told them I wanted a real
vice presidency with specific
responsibilities. I had worked for
it, and I felt I earned it."
Indeed she had. Vice president
Steven Lewin called her, "an in-
spiration. She is a doer. She is
fabulous to work with. Anytime I

Federation Vice-President
Alvera Gold, right, with
Federation Treasurer Gladys
ask her to work with me on Pro-
ject Renewal, or to help with a
solicitation, it's a priority, she'll
drop everything to do it."
Gladys Daren is the wise and
witty treasurer of Federation, the
only woman officer aside from
Alvera. "I've earned my stripes,"
she said. She has served as
Women's Division Campaign
chairman and president, as a
Federation board member and
assistant treasurer.
How does she like working
almost exclusively with men? "I'll
tell you a little secret," she said.
"I love what I do, but, it's not
easy. Sometimes you just sit and
keep your mouth closed."
Daren co-signs the chocks, and
says she's not afraid to question
anything. "I think I've earned the
respect of the men," she said.
Federation executive director
Ken Bierman said, "Gladys is one
of the most diligent and hard
working volunteers we've ever
had. She's been involved in every
aspect of Federation business."
Barbara Wiener, who also is
past national president of the
Young Women's Leadership
Cabinet of United Jewish Appeal,
is positive about the future role of
women in Federation. "We have
women in major positions on the
Board," she said, and they are
"very talented." In addition, she
said, some of the new young men
in top spots have much more pro-
gressive attitudes about working
with women.
President Sheldon Polish is a
case in point. "In the past, there
were some very chauvinistic at-
titudes," he said. "As we grow up,
we get new attitudes."
"If you have a woman who's
good at soliciting, that's what you
use her for. If you have a woman
who's a good administrator, that's
what you use her for."
"Whatever makes the agency
succeed, that's what I want to

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
Humanistic Judaism
Humanistic Jews believe that reason is the best method for the
discovery of truth, morality derives from human needs and is the
defense of human dignity, Jewish history is a testimony to the
absence of God and the necessity of human self-esteem, the
Jewish personality flows from history and not official texts that
seek to describe it, and that the Jewish people is an international
family that has its center in Israel and its roots in the Diaspora.
These are by no means all the beliefs of humanistic Jews, but
cover many of their primary tenets.
In his book, Judaism Beyond God, Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine
reviews the humanistic experience and philosophy. He writes,
"The humanistic Jew does not see the evolution of monotheism as
the major event in Jewish history. That development did not arise
from folk culture and folk experience. It arose out of the need of
the Yahveh prophets and priests to rescue the reputation of their
god from the embarrassment of defeat. It was an attempt to deny
it." He asserts that the major event in Jewish history was the ad-
vent of the "Secular Revolution," which "allowed Jews to become
more authentic." This revolution "brought their personality and
their expressed opinions together" and permitted them to remove
an "uncomfortable theological mask."
The humanistic Jewish view on the Torah emphasizes a secular
approach. Wine writes that while it is accepted as important
Jewish literature, humanistic Jews deny "its status as the fun-
damental symbol of Jewish identity and community loyalty." He
further asserts that the Torah is a "reactionary document." He
claims that it "promotes a life style that is morally offensive to
most Jews and is rejected by them on a behavioral level." Certain
commandments, he argues, have been removed or taken out of
their social and supernatural contexts. In other words, he views
the interpretation of the Torah to a degree as a distortion.
He claims that the traditional Torah life style was a "world of
family tyranny, female inequality, tribal exclusiveness, theocratic
government, and sacrificial ritual." He challenges how Sabbath
observance and stealing, two of the Ten Commandments, can be
placed on the same level.
Wine raises the question of the role of the Torah in the life of
the humanistic Jew. Since such a Jew finds God irrelevant,
believes in a "rational ethic which derives its authority from
human need", a life style "consistent with reason and personal
dignity", a "naturalistic view of Jewish history", and the "rejec-
tion of all idols," he answers that the humanistic Jew's task is to
"fit the Torah into these commitments" and not vice-versa.
The Torah then for the humanistic Jew becomes a "resource
book for the study of the ancient history of the Jewish people."
Claiming that ethics do not come from a book, he uses the exam-
ple of millions of people in numerous cultures, who believe in
honoring parents and telling the truth. Yet, they have never
heard of or much less seen the Torah." These ethics, therefore,
derive from "human needs and human experience."
The Torah, he concludes, is to be studied and evaluated, but for
the humanistic Jew it is not to be worshipped or imagined that
Jewish identity and ethical living depend on it.
The cover of Rabbi Wine's book declares that it presents a
"radical new way to be Jewish." Needless to say, many Jews will
surely take exception to this approach. If nothing else, however,
his work and this philosophy merit serious consideration. If for no
other reason, there are Jews who believe and follow this
humanistic doctrine.

Spy in America
25 Years Ago
HAIFA The Jonathan Pollard
affair brings to mind another
famous spy case involving Israel
which reached its climax almost
exactly 25 years ago, in 1962.
While different in essence, the
Robert Soblen case had many
elements which parallel the pre-
sent incident to a remarkable
Dr. Robert Soblen, a
Lithuanian-born Jew, arrived in
the U.S. during or soon after the
war. At his trial later it was claim-
ed that he and his family had been
rescued from the Nazis by the
Soviet authorities, and in return
he agreed to enter the st-rvices of
the Russian espionage. He was
granted American citizenship in
1947 and created a name for
himself as a successful
psychiatrist and nerve specialist.
In November, 1960, he was ar-
rested by the FBI, charged with
passing vital military secrets to
the Russians, and after trial, was
sentenced to life imprisonment.
His brother, who had earlier been
sentenced on similar charges,
testified against him.
At the trial it was revealed that
he was in the grip of leukemia,
and doctors gave him only a year
to live, but Soblen did not wish to
spend that last year behind bars.
His lawyers fought the verdict,
but all appeals were rejected, and
on June 26, 1962, he was to report
to the police to begin serving his
Instead, he skipped bail of
$100,000, flew to Israel with a
false passport, engaged a lawyer,
and claimed asylum there.
What ensued was a political,
legal, diplomatic and ethical
tangle which occupied public opi-
nion for weeks and months. The
Israeli police arrested him for il-
legal entry, and he was ordered
held for 10 days pending deter-
mination of his fate.
In the absence of an extradition
treaty with the U.S. at the time,
Washington nevertheless re-
quested that he be sent back to
serve his sentence, and con-
siderable pressure was said to
have been exerted by American
officials. American Jews, for the
most part, fearful of anti-Semitic
reactions as well as the bad name
given to Israel, also urged that he
be sent back.
The Ben Gurion government
made a quick decision, on a Friday
afternoon, to expel him (not hand
him over to the Americans) and
the decision was quickly im-
plemented on Sunday morning. A
tremendous furore was raised in
Israel centering on the fact that
Soblen had been denied due pro-
cess of law by not being given his
day in court, and that his lawyer
had not been informed of the ex-
pulsion order, which was carried
out quickly over the weekend,
despite the 10-day detention
Jerusalem's reply that he had
not been "handed over" to the
Americans sounded hollow in view
of the fact that a plain clothes
U.S. marshal had been tipped off,
and was also on the U.S. bound
plane,, to keep an eye on Soblen.
While the plane was over
Europe, Soblen managed to slash
his wrists, there was a landing in
London, and the fugitive was
hospitalized there.
The apprehension on the part of
American Jews was to a large ex-
tent similar to that which was ex-
pressed in tne foliara attair.
There were reports that the
American Jewish community was
"seized with anxiety", both
because a Jew had been convicted
of spying for Russia, and because
he had sought asylum in Israel.
Many Israelis criticized
American Jews for "thinking of
Carl Alpert
their own security," admittedly a
legitimate concern. Harsher
critics said the situation showed
that American Jews, despite all
their claims of equality, felt un-
sure of themselves, exposed and
subject to prejudice. "The
American Jew," wrote one com-
mentator, "feels, like Caesar's
wife, that he must be above suspi-
cion, that he must shout hurrah
louder and wave the flag higher.
It is in the nature of diaspora liv-
ing, and no amount of self-
assuring public proclamations can
change it."
American Jewish response at
the time, as in the Pollard case to-
day, is that the man was a con-
victed spy, and little sympathy
should be shown for him.
Americans are educated and con-
ditioned to condemn the Benedict
Arnolds who are traitors to thei
country. Soblen, furthermore,
was said to have harmed
American security by revealing
secrets to the Soviets. American
Jews were concerned no less by
the desire to preserve Israel's
name and reputation, than by pro-
tection of domestic Jewish in-
terests, they said.
Contemporary observers have
noted that Israel's quick action in
ridding itself of Soblen, stands in
contrast to the foot-dragging
which characterized Jerusalem's
reaction in the Pollard case.
The Soblen affair came to a
quick end. American pressure was
exerted on Britain, and as soon as
Soblen's condition permitted, an
order was issued to expel the
unwelcome guest. He was put on a
plane bound for the U.S., but he
swallowed poison which he had
somehow obtained, and died on
Sept. 11, 1962 almost 25 years
ago. The controversy surrounding
Israel's action continued for mon-
ths thereafter.

"...set out from here to
a land of milk and honey'"''
(Exodus 33:3)
Among the 500 drill formation
It was a blistering hot day in
Israel on Aug. 3. In Jerusalem, as
elsewhere, religious Jews were
preparing for the approaching
fast of Tisha B'Av. They would
continue their 2,000 year old
mourning for the destruction of
the Temple in Jerusalem. In Tel
Aviv, tourists enjoyed the beaches
and swimming pools of five star
hotels in recently purchased Got-
tex or Gideon Oberson outfits. At
the same time, a few miles to the
south, in a place called "Serafin",
several hundred 18 year old girls
practiced their newly learned
military drills.
These young women were about
to complete their basic army train-
ing in the Israel Defense Force
(IDF). Today they awoke at 4:30
a.m. Each and every shoe was
shined to a high polish, every bed
was tightly made, the adrenalin
raced as the excitement grew.
They assembled on the huge field,
each in her assigned position.
They would practice the com-
plicated marching procedures un-
til every step was perfect. four
more times before the drill master
was satisfied with the two hour
routine. They had gone over it,
again and again, until late the
previous night. After weeks of dif-
ficult training this seemed almost
like "fun." Most of the
"graduates" had only recently
graduated High School. All of
them had turned 18 within the last
half year.
They would serve their country
for the next two years. Men serve
in the IDF for three years, women
for two. For all of these young
Israelis, college and future
employment is put on hold.
Military service is part of growing
up in a country surrounded by
hostile forces. The army is ac-
cepted as another fact of life, just
as the heat in summer or high
prices and taxes.
Shira Louria was born at The
Rambam Hospital in Haifa, on
Feb. 11, 1969. She traces her
ancestry directly to one of
Judaism's greatest sages, the
Rabbi Yitzack Louria of Safed.
Her family has lived in Israel
several centuries. (But that is
another story.) All of the Lourias
are well educated and well travel-
ed. They have a lovely home in the
town of Atlit, just south of Haifa.
Shira has resided in both America
and Greece and can speak several
languages. She is both intelligent
and beautiful. The army is proving
to be a new and exciting ex-
perience. She has become friendly
with girls from all over Israel,
whose origins are from many
parts of the globe. They have lived
together for the past few weeks,
sharing ideas and thoughts.

Together they practiced shooting
M-16 rifles and running miles on
end with a full backpack. In
just a few more hours, all of them
will become fully fledged soldiers,
and an important part of the

The graduation ceremony was
originally called for 5 p.m., but
because of the onset of Tisha B'Av
it was changed to 3 o'clock. At
about 2 in the afternoon, families
and friends of the participants
began arriving at Serafin Army
Base. This is not the usual
"tourist attraction." We had been
invited as close relatives of a
graduating soldier. Cars and oc-
cupants went through a security
check and handed each personal
invitation to the military police
person at the gate. After parking
in an open field, thousands of peo-
ple crowded into a stadium-like
area. The hillside had been leveled
into steps which were then
covered with wooden planks.
Families, many with several
children, vied for places to sit.
They carried baskets of food, bot-
tles of drinking water, and
blankets to sit on some even
shlepped toys to keep the
youngest children occupied.
Over 500 beautiful young
Jewish girls, in khaki uniforms,
ran out onto the dusty, swelter-
ing, open field beyond the
separating fence. One heard
shouts of "Ima," "Abba" ..
names like "Nurit," "Raychal"
and "liana," filled the air. We
called to Shira, who waved joyful-
ly when she spotted us. Over all
the noise she screamed, "Where
are my Ima and Abba (Mom and
Dad)?" In this crowd it was hard
to find anyone. "Don't worry they
are here someplace. We'll locate
them." Luckily, we discovered sit-
ting room under the shade of an
overhanging tree. Others were
not so fortunate. As the sun rose
higher in the sky, the girls gather-
ing on the field began to assembly
in formation. They were to re-
main, standing or parading, in the
direct sunlight for almost three
full hours.
At about 3:45, the army band
appeared and the ceremony
began. For some unexplained
reason, they played "Wait Till
The Sun Shines, Nellie." The sun
certainly shone brightly that
afternoon. Each platoon displayed
individually colored epaulets.
Some wore red, some blue, some
yellow, others were a combination
of colors. As relatives saw a
familiar shoulder color, names
again rang through the air. A
younger brother shouted, "Ima, 1
can see liana. Quick take her
picture!" Many cameras clicked as
the commanding officer called the
names of those girls who were to
receive special commendations.
All the soldiers stood at
meticulous attention. Unfor-
tunately, the medics had some
work to do when at least a few
fainted from the intense heat.
They ran quickly and discreetly
administered to anyone who need-
ed help.
After the speeches and mar-
ching drills were completed, the
band struck up the recessional.
This time they played, "It's A
Small World After All." Somehow
it seemed appropriate. As the
troops were dismissed, each girl
threw her hat in the air in an ex-
pression of both exhilaration and
relief. Shira found us and together
we ran through the crowd to find
her parents and sister. There
were enough hugs, kisses, apples
and cool drinking water passed
around to satisfy an army. Shira
and her friends were permitted
one hour to visit before having to
report back to quarters.
For the next six months,
Private Shira Louria, the
daughter of many generations of
Israel, will undergo intensive
training in an attempt to qualify
for a specialized position as a
psychological examiner in Israel's
Army. Women serve in all bran-
ches of the Israeli military.
Although they are taught the use
of weapons, they do not par-
ticipate in direct combat, but
might be assigned to work in
border villages or kibbutzim
where a military presence is a
necessity. Shira's 14 year old
sister, Didi, will begin her army
service in about 3% years. She
hopes the day will not be so sultry
when she graduates.

native Minimum Tax:
In 1987, gifts of appreciated
property may be subject to the
Alternative Minimum Tax. But
whether or not subject to the
AMT, donor will always pay less
in taxes by making gifts versus
not making them.
Capital Gains Tax:
In 1987, Long Term Capital
Gains will be taxed as ordinary in-
come. Therefore a donor in the
maximum tax bracket will pay
38.5 cents for each dollar of
capital gain. In 1988, this will be
28 cents. In 1986, the tax on these
gains was 20 cents. Giving capital

MAZON is the word for "meal"
in Hebrew.
MAZON The Jewish
Response to Hunger, is a Califor-
nia based organization.
JCC's WECARE program was
the recipient recently of a $5,000
grant from this two year old
organization dedicated to unusual
methods of raising money to help
feed the needy.
Established by Moment
Magazine editor, Leonard Fein,
the organization raises funds by
asking party hosts to donate three
percent of the cost of their catered
affair. MAZON raises its revenue
solely through synagogues and
their affiliated caterers. The
funds, however, are distributed on
a non-sectarian basis. MAZON
has experienced remarkable
growth during the past two years
of feeding the hungry.
WECARE (With Energy, Com-
passion and Responsible Effort)
the volunteer arm of the Center,
will expand its food distribution
program by purchasing super-
market gift certificates to give
along with the canned food they
supply to an ever increasing
number of needy families in the
So many more individuals and
families are now calling upon the
WECARE supply closet that the
stock has become depleted and is
in need of replenishment.
Canned foods: Fish, Soups,
Vegetables, Fruit.
Staples: Soaps, Laundry Pro-
ducts, Paper Goods.
Help WECARE reach out to
more of those in need in the com-
munity. Bring your donation of
supplies to the Center. Allyn
Kanowsky, WECARE and
Membership Director would be
grateful for your help. Call her for
more information.
Both the Center and the B'nai
B'rith Youth Organization have
been sharing a side by side ex-
perience for the past several
years. Staff members of each
agency have planned activities
together for teenagers dealing
with sports, social activities and
volunteer services. Just this past
Spring, BBYO members helped
WECARE's drive for canned food
to stock the JCC's Food Bank.
And beginning this Fall,
BBYO/JCC have teamed together
to employ the talents and ex-
perience of Richard Kessler who
will be working in partnership for
both agencies as Director of Teen
Age Activities. Many ideas and
programs are forthcoming, with
focus upon sports, trips, dances
and volunteer activity. Although
the new JCC/BBYO office has
been moved upstairs in Building A
to the "youthful" ambiance of the
Jackowitz Youth Lounge, all
teenagers of high school age are
cordially invited to be in on the
ground floor of the planning
stages. Call the Center. Join in.
All participants welcome.

the JCC.
Dr. Norman Kaufman, and his

ing children a chance to enjoy a
valuable summer experience. The
prize: a $500 rebate on a total
summer camp bill for one camper.
Yes, they won. Their name was
drawn and they immediately
donated the prize back to the
fund. Camp Scholarship is that
much richer in good fortune as
well as in funds. Camp staff and
committee are very grateful to the
Kaufmans for their gift.
The Kaufman's camper, son
Marc, 6'A years old and a
Chaverim camper '87, has been an
early on participant at the Center.
Steve MiUhauser, JCC Camp Chairman, con-
gratulates Donna Kaufman who has just won the
Camp Scholarship Drawing held in August.
Sons Marc, left and Michael are also pleased. The
Kaufmans redonated their winnings to the Camp
Scholarship Fund.
He began with "Mommy and Me"
classes and continued on in the en-
tire JCC pre-school program.
Summers he has been a regular
camper since he was old enough.
Brother Michael, age 2Vi, is
following in Marc's footsteps by
joining the JCC young crowd this
fall. He'll be coming to school
three mornings a week.
An internist specializing in
gastroenterology, Dr. Kaufman is
associated with Florida Medical
Center. Donna Kaufman says
although they live in Tamarac
she's glad to make the trip to
Sunrise Blvd. "I love the JCC,"
she says. "I wouldn't think of sen-
ding my children anyplace else.

Experience of a Volunteer for Israel
Regional Co-ordinator
"AL TASLICHANU" is one of
the prayers for the High Holy
Days. The individual in his per-
sonal prayer to the Almighty begs
"Do Not Forsake Me In My Old
The reality of "old age" became
a new experience for me in Israel.
I was assigned to work in a
geriatric hospital in Jaffa. On my
first day of work I donned my
white jacket eager to help and
start working.
What I experienced was one of
the great Mitzvahs of my life.
However I did not realize at the
time what an emotional impact
this would have upon me.
One cannot realize the life of the
patient or worker in a geriatric
environment. The patients were
men and women who had suffered
strokes, were blind, memory
gone, no legs, some with no con-
trol of their bodily functions and
others without the ability to stand
or walk. They required constant
attention for their very existence.
My job was to prepare and serve
breakfast and lunch. In addition, I
fed those who could not feed
themselves, ie, the blind, the
paralyzed and those who had
given up on life completely. There

the blind patient swallowed his
food before the next spoonful or
he would choke on his food.
Some patients were more for-
tunate than others and had family
members come to feed them.
Because of the shortage of person-
nel, there were at times only one
nurse or aide to handle patients on
two floors. Therefore, the need
for volunteers was of utmost im-
portance. Every patient wore a
large bib that was distributed.
Sometimes the bib was distributed
before the food arrived and the
patients soon began to shout
"Ocal" (food). The sound of their
voices increased to a crescendo
until the food arrived. The pro-
blem then arose for those who
were on special diets. Some
wanted "Harbet Zukor" (a lot of
sugar), or others loudly requested
tea or cold water. In the middle of
it all there were loud shouts of
"Shamoush (toilet). I and my

BALTIMORE Youth Aliya,- which began as a movement to
rescue Jewish youngsters from Nazi Germany and restore them
to the soil of their ancestral home, is returning to its roots with a
new project to bring a vast, sparsely settled expanse of the Negev
desert to flower. The project, headed by a near-legendary figure
in the settlement of Israel, Arie (Lova) Eliav, recalls the spirit of
Zionism's pioneering days in Palestine when the foundations of
the future land of Israel were being laid, Eli Amir, Youth Aliya
director said. Its goal is to reclaim a barren, one million acre tract
of the Negev whose population of 2,500 is spread across 10 set-
tlements by introducing a new generation of Jewish youth to
the soil, Amir said.

South Florida Teens Establish Lasting Friendship With Israeli
Teenagers, no matter where
they're from, what cultures they
come from or what language they
speak, are basically the same, be it
from the United States or Israel.
This is the premise behind the
World Youth- Assembly, held
recently in Israel. Teenagers
meeting teenagers, sharing their
thoughts and feelings and
establishing ever-lasting friend-
ships and bonds.
This wonderful experience
recently was shared by a Planta-
tion teen, Michael Frieser, 17, and
his Israeli friend, Nimrod Asten,
lb1/!, who lives outside of Tel Aviv
in Ramat Ilan. Last year Fort
Lauderdale resident Lauren
Smith, 18, daughter of Florida's
Congressman Larry Smith,
shared a similar experience with
Nimrod while she attended the
Youth Assembly.
Nimrod's family provided home
hospitality for some of the visiting
Americans while they were in
Israel. Michael and Lauren both
shared Nimrod's home while they
were each in Israel.
Recently the three were
reunited as Nimrod made his first
trip to the United States. While
here, he is staying with Michael's
family, parents Paul and Carol
and Michael's brothers.
"Although I've been all through
Europe," Nimrod said in perfect
English, "I've never visited the
U.S. I find your country to be ex-
citing, never boring."
"The Frieser family is most
kind," Nimrod added. "Although
I miss my home very much, I feel
very comfortable here in Florida."
So far, Michael has taken
Nimrod to many of South
Florida's interesting tourist spots

NCCJ Forum to Celebrate
Broward County's Cultural Diversity
In honor of the Bicentennial of
the United States Constitution,
the Broward National Conference
of Christians and Jews, a non-
sectarian human relations
organization, will sponsor a public
forum "We The People:
Celebrating Broward County's
Cultural Diversity."
The luncheon forum, which will
be held Wednesday, Sept. 9, at
noon, at the Anacapri Inn, 1901
N. Federal Highway, Fort
Lauderdale, will feature Kitty
Oliver, columnist and staff writer
for the Miami Herald Broward
Bureau. Mrs. Oliver was recently
awarded a research fellowship by
Nova University to investigate
the effects of population migra-
tions on the cultural development
of our area. She met and inter-
viewed many people of different
ethnic, religious and racial
backgrounds who now live in
Broward County.
The public is invited to come
celebrate with their neighbors
their shared basic values, even as
they take pride in the richness of
their diversity.
The cost of the luncheon is $9

ADL to Sponsor
Catholic-Jewish Dialoge
The Interfaith Commission of
the Archdiocese of Miami and the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith (ADL) announced their in-
tention to co-sponsor a Catholic-
Jewish Dialogue in mid-October.
Leaders of both communities
will be invited to join together to
exchange views following the
papal visit and to explore
priorities for Catholic-Jewish rela-
tions in South Florida.
In a joint statement, the Ar-
chdiocese and the ADL said that:
"We welcome the recently an-
nounced meeting in Rome bet-
ween Pope Paul II and American
Jewish leaders. It is our hope and
prayer that this will be one of
many fruitful dialogues between
Catholics and Jews. In the light of
this hope we have scheduled a
Catholic-Jewish dialogue in Miami
for mid-October.
"Our dialogue in October is a
local initiative designed to give ex-
pression to our sense of respon-
sibility for the future of Catholic-
Jewish relations in South Florida.
Our commitment to dialogue
takes on added significance in
view of recent misunderstan-
dings. We want now to expand the
horizon of our local dialogue by
focusing on future cooperation
between Catholics and Jews,
which will reflect our common in-
terest in improving intergroup
harmony in our community."
