Spotlight on Community '88 Jewish Education ...
Over 3,300 Students to Attend 15 Jewish Schools
Increased enrollments, innovative programs and inten-
sified studies will make the new year for the 15 Jewish
schools of North Broward.
Steve Lewin, chairman of the Committee on Education of
the Jewish Federation of Greater Ft. Lauderdale noted that
"The continuing growth of our area and the increasing com-
mitment quality Jewish education have resulted in enhanc-
ed Jewish programs from the youngest children in the early
childhood education classes through the college credit
classes of the community Judaica High School."
According to preliminary registration figures, Dr.
Abraham J. Gittelson, CAJE Director of Education,
estimated that close to 3,300 students will attend the 12
synagogue schools, and the one day school, Yiddish school
and Judaica High School, with another 1,000 students in the
early childhood education programs. Attendance in the
schools of North Broward has been steadily increasing over
the past decade and the programs have become more varied
and intensified.
"What is significant," Gittelson noted, "is that the years
of Jewish education have increased dramatically. Students

Community Leaders in Profile ...
From Lauderhill Federation Directors
In the Strengthening and
building of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale, four members of the
Lauderhill community have
been named to the 1987-'88
board of directors.
The announcement, made by
Federation president Sheldon
S. Polish, stated that included
in the newly elected leadership
capacity were past president
Victor Gruman, board member
Deborah Fuller Hahn, first
term member Hilda Leibo, and
spiritual leader, Rabbi Aron
Lieberman, Synagogue of In-
verrary Chabad.
Polish indicated that this
group of men and women have
a critical role to perform in
both the administration and
operation of the major central
Jewish organization in North
Broward. "Our past growth
pattern indicates our social
and welfare needs have in-
creased tenfold and greater
emphasis is being placed on
this coming year's board to
meet the burgeoning of
population explosion in the 20
communities that compose our
area," said the chief executive
One of the community's
most committed and concern-
ed philanthropists, Victor
Gruman, served with distinc-
tion as a former Federation
president, instrumental in the
success of bringing aboard
new and profound services. A

Seeding the Achievements
for Future Generations...
In the Year 2000
225,000 Community
Federation President
Long-range planning has
become essential throughout
the organized Jewish com-
munity. Complex decisions
must be made in many areas;
relocating existing facilities
and strategically placing new
ones, implementing new pro-
grams and trimming others,
instituting new ways to raise
funds, and many others. Long-
range planning requires good
information on which to base
difficult decisions.
With this in mind, the
Jewish Federation has named
prominent attorney and com-
munity leader Joel Reinstein
of Fort Lauderdale to chair
our Long-Range Planning
committee and together with
professionals, area represen-
tatives and officials, will com-
tile Federation needs with ac-
curate and up-to-date informa-
tion, complete with a popula-
tion study, integrating
systematic research into many
planning processes. Although
at tis time, there is no official
demographic profile of our
North Broward County com-
munity, we have through the
help of local agencies and
other group organizations ap-
proximated current
municipality population
through surveys.
As of this time, the North
Broward County jurisdiction
consists of 20 individual com-
munities or townships, in addi-
tion to an unincorporated area.
Currently, the areas that com-
pose the Jewish Federation,
namely, East Central, West
Central, and North, have an
estimated 850,000 of which
some 150,000 plus represent
the Jewish community.
By the year 2000, this same
area has been projected to be
225,000, a community that will
require an enlargement and
building that will help us all
share a common bond and
So in the coming months, the
Long-Range Planning commit-
tee will set the wheels in mo-
tion and begin the process of
preparing for the future, and
make^sure that our children,
our grandchildren and future
generations will have a
workable, serviceable and
most of all, a humanitarian
organization, complete with a
myriad of programs for the
young and old alike, that will
never forget our brethren, be
it here in our own community,
in Israel or around the wwld.
Let us all work together in
Federation and help seed the
achievements of future
generations. We want to
assume that the future lies
with those who can meet the
challenge to involve
themselves in the community,
to help mold our community
with intelligence, passion and
campaign, he was a founder
and chairman, Inverrary Hi-
Greens Division, campaign co-
chairman and honoree and has
recently been named to head
the Inverrary Major Gifts
drive. He is chairman of
development for the Founda-
tion of Jewish Philanthropies,
where both he and his wife Min
are in the unique 'builders of
tradition' club.
Since coming to South
Florida from New York City,
where she was involved in both
the Jewish Federation and the
United Jewish Appeal,
Deborah Hahn has played a
key role in the Federation, ser-
ving with honors in the
Women's Division, Major Gifts
and Inverrary Divisions.
Among her leadership posi-
tions are Women's Division's
vice president, Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies,
member, Major Gifts, Inver-
rary Division and currently
serves on the Communications
and Budget and Planning com-
mittees. She was the author of
The Floridian's 'Kol Ishah*.
and now can be read regularly
with her new 'D'vash' column.
Committed to all things
Jewish, Hilda Leibo has worn
two hats when it comes to
helping her fellowman. As a
leading professional with the
State of Israel Bonds, she has
touched the lives of countless
men, women and children in
her work for the Jewish
Homeland, and as a Federa-
tion/UJA stalwart has achiev-
ed a record dollar amount to
provide the vital social service
and humanitarian needs for
her brethren. A co-chairman
and honoree of the Inverrary
Division, she will chair the '88
campaign along with her other
varied responsibilities
Women's Division board
member, chairman, 'Play-A-
Day' Golf and Tennis tourna-
ment as well as newly ap-
pointed committee roles.
For the first time, the
Federation has named the
North Broward County com-
munity pulpit rabbis to be a
part of the important ad-
ministrative process of the
Federation board. Inverrary's
Rabbi Lieberman, joins with
10 other spiritual leaders
representing all areas to help
bring about a cohesiveness and
understanding of the
synagogue membership and
community religious opinions.
Polish reiterated the impor-
tance of these Inverrary
representatives, who together
with the remaining members
will have a great impact in
bringing about a new direction
for the more than 150,000
Jewish men, women and
children in the community.

Palm-Aire's Irving Libowsky Walks So Others Can Ride
When it comes to helping his
fellowman regardless of race,
creed or religion, a native of
Atlanta, Georgia, stands head
and shoulders above the
And because of his deter-
mination and perseverance,
Pompano Beach's Palm-Aire
leader Irving Libowsky walked
many miles through commit-
tee and bureaucratic paper-
work as Federation's Elderly
Services chairman so that
thousands of our Jewish
citizens in North Broward
County can ride in comfort and
with dignity.
Among his many respon-
sibilities as chairman of
Federation's Nutrition Pro-
gram, Gathering Place and
Elder Care member, Irv is con-
cerned with the 'nut and bolts'
of providing for that special
class of residents.
Thanks to Irv, one of the
Federation's leading
members, three specially con-
structed Dodge van vehicles,
equipped with newly built
ramps, bars and other
paraphernalia geared for the
elderly and handicapped, are
now a part of the Federation
transportation caravan. Each
day, some of the glistening
machines make their way
through the 20-area
metropolitan community in-
tersections taking men and
women from their homes to
the kosher nutrition sites at
the Soref Jewish Community
Center in Plantation and the
Lauderhill Mall. Still others
can be found transporting the
frail elderly to the Federa-
tion's Gathering Place, the
adult care center located on
the JCC's Perl man campus.
Whatever the problem
medical, family, social service
Irv's caravan can help and is
willing and able.
According to Sheldon S.
Polish, Federation president,
"Irv Libowsky is a 'one-of-a-
kind man.' He knows no
bounds when it comes to serv-
ing, regardless of the time or
involvement. To the men and
woman at the Nutrition sites
and Gathering Place, Irv is
Libowsky with 100th Birthday
boy Morris Krauss
known as 'Mr. Federation,'
providing the laughter and joy
that helps make each of their
days brighter and filled with
love. He is there for every bir-
thday, every seder, every
discussion and most of all, he is
there for support. When North
Broward County seniors need
something, Irv is their man
and their connection to
"With all the hours spent as
chair of this heartfelt pro-
gram, one wonders where Irv
finds the time to do his other
humanitarian jobs," said
Harold L. Oshry, Federation
executive vice president and
'88 UJA general chairman.
What Oshry is relating to is
the fact that this year as chair-
man of the Federation/UJA
Palm-Aire Division he an-
nounced gifts totaling
$742,000 toward the $6.5
million achieved, the largest in
Federation's 20th year
Already chairman of the '88
campaign, Libowsky, who
along with Joe Kranberg, has
set the wheels in motion for an
even higher and better dollar
In May, the long-standing
member of the Federation
board of directors, was elected
a vice president after having
served as secretary. He has
received every conceivable
honor, being named as the first

tion/UJA 'Hall of Fame,' and

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
Guilt by Silence
Dr. Jack Boozer, Candler Professor of Religion at Emory
University, boldly addressed the 50 or so local clergy on the issue
of anti-Semitism in the Christian church. Using the term, "anti-
Jewish," Boozer charged that this attitude of Christianity during
the 19th and 20th centuries helped lay the foundation for the
Holocaust. Yet, he was quick to note that he did not believe it was
the cause.
He recalled that the Christian community was apparently un-
concerned by the acts against Jews until such measures became
totally unacceptable. By that time it was too late for the church to
take counter measures to stop such atrocities as the concentration
and death camps.
"Is anti-Jewishness essential to being a Christian?" he posed to
the clergy while noting the degree of anti-Semitism in Christian
literature, including biblical passages. He answered his own ques-
tion in the negative and claimed that the essence of Christianity is
to be united with the Jews. "It is not our choice that God has plac-
ed us together," he stated, "but it is our choice whether we accept
The Holocaust marked a critical turning point in history.
Everyone is a survivor, declared Boozer, who had served as a
hospital chaplain in World War II. We are survivors, because we
can no longer accept the illusion that man could not perpetrate
such heinous acts on one another. He noted that scholars are try-
ing to determine how Christianity came to the point of not caring.
Secondly, the Holocaust has increased man's awareness that
silence leads to injustice. Quoting Elie Wiesel, Boozer stated,
"Neutrality helps the aggressor, never the victim. Silence en-
courages the tormentor, never the tormented."
Thought his delivery was mild-mannered, his address was blunt
and hard hitting. The question and answer period that followed
was frightening. Not one clergyman challenged or expressed
agreement with Boozer's comments. Was the silence an admis-
sion that the church had failed? Was the silence an admission of
culpability? Or was it a silence of ignorance, of not knowing what
the church did or did not do, and, thereby, being unable to ask a
question or frame a response?
A question was raised about the Palestinians and Israel's actions
against them. Boozer admitted his lack of knowledge, but ex-
pressed his concern for the Palestinians. He strongly asserted his
belief in a Jewish homeland, but questioned how it could be main-
tained without effecting the rights of others.
A black clergyman questioned Israel's support or trade with
South Africa. Boozer again found it difficult to answer, but claim-
ed that the Holocaust did not give Israel the right to do anything
it wanted to do.
No questions directly on the Holocaust were asked. One can on-
ly wonder why and make unsupported suppositions. It was distur-
bing that the two or three questions posed dealt with Israel and
showed a lack of knowledge of the questioners and respondent
about the situation in and history of the Middle East. If anything,
it tended to show a degree of success by the critics of Israel.
Leaving this meeting, which was held under the auspices of the
Atlanta Bureau of Jewish Education and the Christian Council of
Metropolitan Atlanta, one felt that these people simply did not
know. That is especially disconcerting since they represent the
religious leaders of the community. If they do not know or do not
understand, what can one possibly expect from their

HAIFA In the month of June
seven ships of the U.S. fleet in the
Mediterranean docked in the port
of Haifa, and their crews were
given shore leave. The gray
vessels were very obvious in the
port, but the close to 4,000 sailors
were even more obvious on the
streets of the city, despite the fact
that most of them wore civilian
clothes. Somehow, there was no
difficulty in identifying the
visiting sea folk.
Each batch of visitors, as they
come ashore, usually make a rush
for all available public telephones,
from which they make collect calls
to their families back in the U.S.
The USO office, set up on top of
Mt. Carmel, reports that some
thousands of such calls were plac-
ed from their own phones, but we
have seen the sailors lined up at
public telephones on the street
corners as well.
Israel is one of the favorite
ports of call. What do the sailors
like most about this country? They
like the hospitality of the Israelis,
the cleanliness, the entertain-
ment, the private parties. They
spend hundreds of thousands of
dollars on souvenirs and jewelry.
What do they dislike? The taxi
drivers who cheat them.
We looked for stories, and found
two. Read them, and decide which
will be remembered the longest.
Tommy Lapid, journalist and
radio commentator, reported that
he was driving on the double lane
highway up to Jerusalem, parallel
to a busload of sailors who were
en route to the capital. A beer bot-
tle came sailing out one of the win-
dows, smashing right in front of
his car, and he held his breath for
a moment, for fear of his tires.
Nothing happened, but when a se-
cond bottle came out a few
minutes later he took action. He
speeded up, passed the bus, and
then forced the vehicle to stop. He
got out, boarded the bus, and
began to complain to the driver.
The latter threw up his hands.
"I can't do a thing with them!"
Lapid turned to the sailors, told
them how happy the Israelis were
to have them visit, but they should
at least show some respect and
courtesy on their part. The sailors
looked at him. No one said a word.
One stood up and took his picture.
That was all.
The second story is quite dif-
ferent. Word reached the men of
the USS Yellowstone that the old
community center in the under-
privileged communities of Nesher
and Tel Hanan, just outside of
Haifa, was almost falling apart.
After investigation, action was
taken. A squad of 40 sailor
volunteers descended upon the
Center, and after three or four
days of plastering, painting,
repairing banisters, door and win-
dow frames, etc., the old building
gleamed and sparkled like new. A
total of about 100 working days
went into the project, and
wherever possible, local residents
joined in as well.
When the local children got out
of school and learned what was
going on, they ran to the Center.
The sailors, many of whom were
fathers themselves, played with
the kids. Other youngsters seized
the opportunity to practice the
English they were learning at
school. It was a touching occasion.
They all exchanged addresses,
and promised to keep in touch.
The sailors assured the residents
they would come back when next
their ship puts in at Haifa. It was
an event which the people of
Nesher and Tel Hanan will long
Truth to tell, the navy men were
used to the reception they got. A
Carl Alpert
week earlier they had done a
similar job on a day care facility
for the blind. Last year a group of
navy handymen visited scores of
homes of elderly people living
alone, to fix leaky faucets, repair
windows, oil squeaking hinges,
paint peeling walls, and do all the
many odd jobs that were required.
When the U.S. Sixth Fleet
departs, the sailors leave behind
them not only broken bottles, but
also large amounts of money with
local merchants, happy and joyful
children, grateful elderly folk, and
who knows, maybe a few broken
hearts as well.

"...set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
Laura Morris
From the week-old baby ..
recently named in memory of a
cherished relative, to the old
Rebbe davening at the Western
Wall, every Jew is a link in the un-
broken chain of our people. Dur-
ing the High Holy Day season,
Jews all over the world feel this
special bonding. Rosh Hashanah
may have many meanings, but to
all, it is a significant time of
reestablishing the ties Jews have
for one another. Synagogues from
Milwaukee to Milan, from Planta-
tion to Petach-Tikvah, are crowd-
ed with people who know they
"belong." Perhaps, some do not
comply with the religious obser-
vances as well as others, but they
are still part of the fabric of the
Jewish people. This was the lesson
learned by a group of teenagers
who recently returned from an ex-
traordinary journey to the land of
their ancestors.
Laura Morris, of Coral Springs,
has always known she is part of
the Jewish people. Her family is
very involved with Jewish affairs.
Her aunt, Gladys Daren,
treasurer of our Federation and a
past Women's Division president,
gave Laura a phenomenal present
for her 'sweet sixteen' A Trip
To Israel.
Laura joined other teenagers,
both boys and girls, from the
United States and Canada, for a
summer in Israel. They were
under the sponsorship of USY
(United Synagogue Youth). She
said, "The first thing we did, after
landing, was to visit the Western
Wall. It was really weird ... it
gave us chilis. That's when we
knew we were really in Israel. All
of us talked to people about
Jewish things. Returning to
Jerusalem, six weeks later, we
weren't visitors anymore ... we
felt we belonged there!"
Although almost everyone could
read the language, when they ar-
rived, only a few of the par-
ticipants actually spoke any
Hebrew. Yet each one understood
many words and phrases before
leaving the country. They learned
that they could communicate with
their Israel counterparts on many
levels. New insight into the life of
the typical Israeli teenager was
dramatically brought home to
these Americans after they spent
almost a week in an Israeli army
field school. They were assigned
to a special army base in the
north, where they spent the very
first night on a hike.
Given regular army uniforms
and canteens, they typically
started each morning at 5 a.m.,
with an hour hike. During training
everyone learned to operate an
M-16 rifle. One morning, arising
at four, they assembled in squads
of about eight people, and pro-
ceeded to hike for several hours.
Some carried large jericans of
water on their backs, others sacks
of food. They were also packed
with various camping equipment.
Heavier loads were shared, so
that each of the hikers carried an
equal burden. Upon reaching their
destination, every squad was pro-
vided with a box containing flour,
sugar, salt, a can of turkey, and a
can of meat. Cans of corn, peas
and carrots, a few pickles, onions,
tomatoes and some fruit com-
pleted the provisions. They were
also given a can opener and some
matches. The next two hours was
hectic as they prepared the meal.
The sergeant would sample each
dish. Who could prepare the best
First on the agenda was finding
the means to build a fire. Rocks to
surround the fire were not as dif-
ficult to locate as a piece of metal
on which to cook. Laura's group
found a circle of metal, which they
cleaned in the nearby river. Each
person was assigned a different
task. They made their bread with
water from the jericans, flour and
sugar. After mixing the ingre-
dients together, they rolled it
round and flat. Topped with
turkey, the creamed corn and
tomatoes, they invented a new
variety of pizza. Other squads
warmed cans near the fire to
make stew or put tomatoes,
onions and other ingredients on
sticks to form shish kebab.
Although some meals turned out
better than others ... no one
starved. Laura wrote to her aunt
about this adventure, "We all
learned to work together. We had
really become one group."
During their stay in the army
they suffered tiredness, stiff
muscles, aches and pains and a
deplorable rash of flea bites. They
scrubbed the barracks and did kit-
chen duty. A half hour each day
was used to help clean the base.
They really got a feel of the army.
Laura commented that, "Israeli

kids don't mind going into the ar-
my. It's expected and just a fact of
life. Even though some are lucky
and get the better assignments.
Everyone does a fair share."
After field school came a trip to
Masada. They awoke at two in the
morning to start the journey to
the top of King Herod's Palace.
They packed their breakfast,
boarded a bus and arrived at
Masada at sunrise. Because they
had just come from their army ex-
perience, the climb up the side of
this mountain was like a walk in
the park.
The group also spent some time
on a kibbutz in the rolling hills of
the lower Galilee. Laura enjoyed
the wonderful fresh fruits and
vegetables, but not the "chocolate
butter" sandwiches so loved by
Israeli kids. She found that kib-
butz children spend their time
together while the parents work,
but unlike years ago, they sleep
and eat with their own families.
A visit to a day center for the
elderly made a deep impression on
our Laura. She said, "I'm usually
not very good at 'old age homes.'
This was really different. It was
an entirely different atmosphere.
Instead of sitting around playing
'games' or cards, they all worked.
Most of the people were handicap-
ped or impaired, but they all have
jobs. Some of the old men were
bookbinding. They were repairing
books for the schools. The schools
don't give them the work because
they feel sorry for them. They do
the best job. They really care
about what they are doing and
they give the best price." In
another room, where people were
engaged in embroidery and
needlepoint, Laura and an elderly
man exchanged ideas on how to
needlepoint. An assortment of
products made by the older people
were eagerly purchased by the
visiting teens.
The group spent two days in
Eilat, where they went snorkeling
and enjoyed the blue-green sea.
As a native Floridian, Laura is a
veteran snorkeler, but for the
Canadians, Long Islanders and
other northerners, it was another
new experience.
Back in Jerusalem, they visited
the Israel Museum and the Billy
Rose Gardens. Only days before
they had seen the caves at
Qamran, where a shepherd boy
had discovered the Dead Sea
Scrolls. History came alive, at the
Shrine of The Book, when they
viewed some of the artifacts found
in those caves. The girls and boys
had the opportunity to do some
digging of their own, on an ar-
cheological site, outside the old ci-
ty. It was quite a thrill to find an-
cient glass and Byzantine pottery
that had been buried for over two
thousand years.
Soldiers, who had looked so
threatening when the American
teenagers first arrived, suddenly
gave a different impression.
Laura said, "In the beginning,
walking around Jerusalem, it was
a shock to see so many soldiers
carrying these big guns. After
field school and after traveling all
over the country, we finally got
back to Jerusalem for our last
week. We had handled M-16's, we
had climbed Masada, and we had
been living with soldiers. Now
when we saw those same soldiers
and we didn't even think about it.
We all talked to them. They gave
us 'goomies' (Israeli rubber
bracelets), and were really nice."
Laura's birthday is very near
Rosh Hashanah. She will be 17
this week. Summing up her trip to
Israel she said, "We weren't sup-
posed to go to the Arab Suq (the
market) alone even though
some kids did. But I loved the idea
of being able to get on a bus and
go anywhere else. For our free
weekend, some of us took a bus to
the beach for the day. It's just
safe. I loved Israel, especially
Jerusalem. I really want to go
back. I really belonged."
CRC First Meeting September 15th
Barbara K. Wiener assumes the
chairmanship of the Jewish
Federation Community Relations
Committee following Richard En-
tin, who served as chairman for
three years.
Ms. Wiener, who is a member of
the board of directors is also chair-
man of the Missions committee;
previously served as campaign
chair for the Women's Division
UJA campaign and also serves on
a number of national boards. Ms.
Wiener is a member of the ad-
visory committee of the National
Jewish Community Relations Ad-
visory Council.
Wiener announced that the first
meeting of the CRC for the new
year, is scheduled for Tuesday,
Sept. 15 in the Federation Board
Room. The meeting will feature a
talk by Steven J. Kravitz, a promi-
nent Miami attorney who is one of
the group of Jewish leaders who
will meet with Pope John Paul
four days prior to the CRC
meeting. Mr. Kravitz will offer an
insight into the discussion with
the Pope and will be able to give
his impressions of the outcome of
this historic session.
Also featured at this first
meeting of the season will be a
first-hand-report of Mr. and Mrs.
George Berman and Carol Effrat
who recently visited the Soviet
Union and were able to meet with
Jewish Refuseniks. Soviet Jewry
is a priority matter of the CRC
and the experiences related by the
Bermans and Mrs. Effrat will of-
fer an off-the-record account of
conditions in the Soviet Union.
The Community Relations Com-
mittee of the Jewish Federation is
one of 113 CRC's throughout the
country that deals with issues and
activities directed toward enhanc-
ing conditions conducive to secure
Jewish living. The CRC also gives
priority to interpreting Israel's
position and needs to the

report and according to
Sheldon S. Polish, Fed-

gressman Mica gave us
the reassurance tnat we
stand as a real solid group in
accomplishing one of our
most important building
programs within our
20-area community name-
ly, the urgently needed
elderly housing. We know
that with his concern and
his efforts, and the work of
our Elder Care committee,
we will have both govern-
ment and community of-
ficials striving to achieve
the reality housing for our
senior citizens.'"' Chairmen

dle East, Israel and Soviet
Jewry positions. He said
that the Congress in general
has always felt, "Israel is
our real true friend,
democratic ally and country
we can count on in the Mid-
dle East. There is no other,
and if the current events
have done anything, they've
pointed that out. Israel is
the only country that we can
count on for military sup-
port, basic political,
dogmatic support. In fact,
this year even with difficult
budget constraints, there is
a unanimous feeling, liberal,
conservative, democratic,
republican that our
assistance to Israel should
continue to be highest
priority. This year we would
have given them $11.5
billion in foreign aid, and if
my memory serves me
right, there wasn't a single
negative vote in the commit-
tee for that sum."
In a question concerning
PLO offices in the U.S.,
Mica emphasized that, "I
believe we will have hear-
ings on the issue this year
months. Also the logic and
reason as the eligible
criteria in the past, has
some reasonable guidelines.
Now the downside is that it
must be a first degree
relative, namely, a father,
mother, brother, sister, who
can leave. This in relation to
cousins, in-laws, etc." All in
all the Congressman felt
that there might be a total
change of heart in the
Soviet Union and Soviet
leadership, and some
change in direction and at-
titude, but that doesn't
mean that the American

highly controversial, but we
can pass something out of
the House or at least focus
attention on the offices here

rorist organization."
In an interesting aspect to
Soviet Glasnost, he said
there is both an upside and
downside. "On the positive,

A Summary by The National
Conference on Soviet Jewry ..
Emigration remains the central
issue of concern to Jewish ac-
tivists and refuseniks alike. The
first six months of 1987 may be
regarded, in terms of both emigra-
tion and Jewish life in the Soviet
Union, as a period of bureaucratic
gestures and promises, heighten-
ed anticipation within the
refusenik community and abroad,
and relatively meagre results,
combined with contradictory and
confusing signals from Soviet

or "openness" in Soviet society, it
is not being applied to the Jewish
While emigration did rise to a
total of 3,092 during the first six
months of 1987. it is a long way
from the Soviet inspired specula-
tion of 11,000 by the end of the
year. Nevertheless, it was a mark-
ed increase over the 914 exit per-

Five Convincing Reasons to Contribute ...
Federation/United Jewish Appeal The Heartbeat of World Jewry
Federation Executive Director
And General Campaign Chairman
As members of our Federation
family of contributors, it behooves
us all to strive even more diligent-
ly to reach the more than 50,000
nongivers and the tens of
thousands who have somehow
fallen between the cracks our
friends, neighbors and business
As a businessman and concern-
ed community resident, I am
somewhat bewildered and confus-
ed, when on my daily rounds of
meetings with North Browardites
in my role with Federation, I hear
the repeated retort, "I have never
had a good enough reason to give
to Federation/UJA."
Having spent the greater part
of my adult life working on behalf
of our Jewish brethren through a
myriad of philanthropic and other
charitable organizations, on a na-
tional, state and local level, I have
always felt that the fact that you
are Jewish was reason enough.
And if that is not convincing,
then perhaps it's time to
enumerate some salient facts of a
sensible and logical nature.
1. Think About Parents and
Their Parents. What will you do if
your parents or grandparents
reach an age where it is no longer
safe for them to be alone, or re-
quire some extensive care and
counseling services?
The Jewish Federation/UJA
campaign helps to fund the Jewish
Family Service, social service and
welfare programs for the area's
33 percent elderly.

give, consider how these services

2. Think About Your Children.
Your contribution to the Federa-
tion/UJA also goes to support
educational, recreational and
social programs for Jewish
You don't have to be a parent to
appreciate the importance of pro-
viding our youth with healthy en-
vironments to grow and learn.
Places like the Jewish Com-
munity Center, Hebrew Day
School, Central Agency for
Jewish Education, BBYO, Hillel,
among others, offer the building,
guidance and enrichment pro-
grams necessary to make the
young future leaders of our com-
munity, intelligent, passionate
and concerned individuals.
In these ways, your pledge not
only works today, but is an invest-
ment in tomorrow.
3. Think About What's Hap-
pening in the Middle East.
Frightening, isn't it? Suddenly,
not only are Jews the targets for
terrorism, but so is every
American. As this paper goes to
press, American ships are being
targeted in the Persian Gulf as the
world scene explodes with spy
scandals, weapons diversions and
the like.
The Federation/UJA provides
aid to Israel for medical needs,
education, immigration and
welfare programs. They help ar-
range for people in the United
States to visit Israel so they can
better understand the issues and
the people who create a safe har-
bor for Jews all over the world.
Now, more than ever, your sup-
port is needed to insure the sur-
vival of Israel the only
democracy in the Middle East and
the only ally America can count
4. Think About the Threats to
Religious Freedom Right Here in
The U.S. and Abroad. Just pick up
the newspaper today and listen to
a news broadcast, and you'll see
what we're talking about.
Anti-Semitism is on the rise
around the world, embodied by
neo-Nazi groups many which
hide behind less treacherous
names, but their goals remain just
as treacherous.
Prayer in school and other
policies aimed at blurring the
separation of church and state are
being advanced by well-funded
religious lobbies. Quota systems
for hiring and for school admit-
tance, which in the past have been
used to keep Jews out, are once
again being proposed.
These issues affect you,
whether you are religious or not.
Federation funds the Community
Relations Committee, and a host
of national and other service
groups to challenge organized ef-
forts jeopardizing religious
We need your support to protect

rights. Your rights, which if not

Happen If You Don't Do
Anything. You probably think so-
meone else will take care of it if
you don't. After all, one donation
can't make that much difference,
right? Wrong.

would make a pledge, even a small
one, it would add up to enough

grams and more. Especially now,

ming, your pledge counts. You
So in 1988, instead of doing
nothing, do something you've
never done before. Make a tax
deductible contribution to the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale/United Jewish
Appeal campaign.
Think about it. If you're still not
convinced, then let me suggest
that you see the work accomplish-
ed firsthand, because sometimes,
seeing is believing. Join us on our
20th Anniversary Community
Mission to Israel in October; be a
part of a mini-mission caravan to

CAJE Bible Study Group Begins Sixth Year

The opening session of the sixth
year of the Hug Tanach, the com-
munity Bible study group,
organized by the Central Agency
for Jewish Education of the
Jewish Federation of Greater Ft.
Lauderdale, will take place on
Monday morning, Sept. 14 at the
Jewish Federation building on
West Oakland Park Boulevard.
Designed to provide an oppor-
tunity for intensive study and
analysis of one of the most belov-
ed of all Biblical texts, the Book of
Psalms, the group brings together
some 30 Rabbis, Educators, Can-
tors and knowledgeable laymen
who meet bi-weekly.
Members take turns in leading
each session, and through the an-
cient Biblical method of examina-
tion of every word and phrase of
the text, they illuminate the fine
points of each of the verses of the
Rabbi Albert Schwartz. Federa-
tion's director of Chaplaincy Ser-
vices, and a charter member of
the group, noted that "The joy of
Torah study is a supreme value in
Jewish life. The existence of such
Agency Focus
a group in our community is visi-
ble evidence of the constantly in-
creasing quality of Jewish life and
Jewish learning."
Mystical allusions in the text,
grammatical explanations, tradi-
tional and modern commentaries,
historical analysis and contem-
porary ethical ideals ... all are
part of the interpretations that
flow out of the passionate
religious poetry that comprises
the Book of Psalms.
Leader of the first session will
be Rabbi Menachem Raab, dean of
the Hillel Community Day in
North Miami Beach. He was or-
dained and awarded his doctoral
degree from Yeshiva University.
Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson, CA-
JE director of Education noted
that this would be the fourth year
that Rabbi Raab would lead the
opening session of the group.
"When someone does something
in Jewish life for three con-
secutive times he has the right to
continue doing it permanently,"
stated Gittelson. "We hope that
Rabbi Raab exercises this
privilege in the years to come until
we complete the 150 chapters of
the Psalms."
Three years ago due to the in-
terest in Jewish study, a second
group was formed to meet directly
after the Bible class. This group,
the Hug Talmud, studies one of
the tractates of the Babylonian
Talmud dealing with the laws,
customs and concepts of the holi-
day of Purim. It includes, in addi-
tion to the holiday, elements of
Jewish philosophy, ethics, history,
folk lore and legal matters
relating to a host of other subject
Rabbi Schwartz has served as
leader of the Talmud class with
the assistance of Rabbi Samuel
Cooper. Each member of the
group prepares selected portions
of the text before each class, so as
to engage fully in the time-
honored Talmudic style of dialec-
tical study.
The Bible group was modeled on
the World Jewish Bible Society
that was founded by David Ben
Gurion, the first Prime Minister of
the State of Israel, and a life-long
student of the Bible.
Individuals who possess a wide
knowledge of Bible and Talmud
are invited to join the groups,
which meet bi-weekly at the
Federation from 9:15-10:45 a.m.
and from 10:45 to 12:00 noon. The
next meeting is scheduled for
Sept. 28.

Dear Nan and Zadie,
Hi, how are ya'll. I'm great. I
am having a ball and I love it here.
I've now been here a week and a
half and still going. This course is
absolutely fascinating. We have
classes everyday and every couple
of days we go on a tiyul (field trip)
and we see what we learned.
Meaning I would learn of a Tel
(which is a mound with many dif-
ferent civilizations one on top of
another that accumulate over cen-
turies) and then go to Tel Gezer
and I'll see what it is like, and how
they lived during King Saul's
reign, or another Tel during King
David. I am so happy and so lucky
to be here in Israel, when I think
of how for thousands of years
Jews have fought for Israel, of
suffering, oppression, massacres,
ghettos, banishments, exiles,
slavery, and humiliation, yet we
as Jews have survived and now to-
day what I take for granted, there
are others who still fight today for

Despite Soviet protestations

shall do what I can do to carry on
tradition and be proud of my
heritage, culture and mostly my
religion. Even though I live in
America, I feel a part of this
beautiful country, a bondage if
you will, inseparable from its ex-
istence and Israel's In-
dependence, and I'm proud to be
here in this land rich of culture
and heritage, my heritage. I went
to the Kotel (the Wall) the other
day and put a note on giving my
blessings to you, my parents,
sister, family and friends, but
more important my blessings and
thanks to Israel, the country, and
Israel to people who have fought

and love ya'll so much, but am

two years, often with parents in attendance, while the
numbers and percentages of students continuing on in the
high school years is equally impressive."
Two schools will welcome new educational leaders. At
Sha'aray Tzedek, Joy Kahn-Evron will become the educa-
tional director of the religious school while Penny Klombers
will be the early childhood education director. At Temple
Kol Ami, Tirza Arad will add the direction of the religious
school to her duties as ECE director.
At Temple Beth Orr, where Moshe Ezry is educatonal
director, the school will form a new junior choir, under the
direction of Arlene Solomon. In addition, the special class
for children with Learning Disabilities will enter its third
year at the congregation, under the cooperative sponsor-
ship of the synagogue and CAJE.
At Temple Kol Ami, Mrs. Arad will highlight the holiday
observances for the year, with special emphasis on "Israel
40." Every first Friday of the month, the Sabbath eve ser-
vice be led by a different school grade, with a special Shab-
sat family dinner preceeding the service.
Two schools will enjoy new facilities during the year.
Temple Bat Yam, under the direct supervision of its
spiritual leader, Rabbi Lewis Littman, has already moved
into its new quarters at 5151 NE 14 Terrace, just off Com-
mercial Boulevard. Meanwhile, the David Posnack Hebrew
Day School is looking forward eagerly to entering its new
building which will eventually provide classrooms and aux-
iliary space for up to 400 students.
Every school will have a variety of challenging and ex-
citing programs that will be reported upon in the coming
issues of the Floridian. On Thursday, Sept. 3, all the faculty
members gathered, together with teachers from South
Palm Beach County, for the first area-wide inservice pro-

As we begin 5748, we invite you to enjoy our wonderful butter and wish
you the happiest and healthiest New Year possible.
Our quality has earned us the (g) Kosher certification. Maybe that's why
the name Bieakstone's* has practically meant butter for over 100 years.
And, what better way to break the fast on Yom Kippur than with a piece
of challah shmcared with Breakstone's* Butter.

favorite activity working with
young people Kessler had two
years of business experience as a
Customer Service Representative
for a Maryland Paper Company.
"But here is my opportunity,"
says Kessler. "It is my favorite
choice, of course, to continue to
work with young people and to
build a strong Jewish community
accent on youth!"
With JCC families aboard, 65
cars proceeded across Alligator
Alley between Thursday, Aug. 20
and Friday the 21st, towards an
end-of-summer week-end celebra-
tion at the Marco Island Radisson.
This event grows more popular
every year with more and more
families joining in the good times
planned for them on the shores of
the Gulf. The beaches are wider,
uncrowded, and the waters,
clearer and calmer.
"But the activities were lively,
and so were the spirits," says
David Surowitz, JCC's assistant
executive director who organized
all the fun and frolic.
Over 200 participated in the
week-end retreat during the
perfect transitional period bet-
ween the end of the camp season
and the beginning of school.
Families enjoyed this great oppor-
tunity for a week-end of
Among the guests Rabbi
Elliot Skiddell of Ramat Shalom,
his wife, Julie and their two
daughters. The Rabbi began the
gathering of the JCC clan with
everyone joining in Sabbath Ser-
vices. And the next day he con-
tinued with a study session for
moms and dads around the pool
and later a Havdalah service on
the beach to conclude the
"The highlight of the week-end
was this twilight service on the
sands," says Linda Streitfeld,
who was there with Jeff and their
two little girls "The candles
glowing in the dark, together with
the Shabbat songs and prayers
... it was all very emotional and
inspiring. Even the youngest
children will remember it."
Parents commented on the
Radisson accommodations all
suites with little kitchens and
Richard Kessler, man of many
' talents and interests, has been ap-
: pointed to serve both the JCC and
BBYO as Director of youth ac-
tivities on campus.
Both agencies now share a
"Youth Office" in the popular
Jackowitz Lounge on the second
floor of Building A. And Kessler
says he expects the Lounge to
become the source and the scene
of plenty of action for the com-
munity's young people in the very
near future.
Kessler has two areas of activity
in mind, to establish 1. A
theatrical troupe to entertain on
and off campus. 2. Several sports
leagues such as Basketball,
Volleyball and Flag Football.
A native of Richmond, Va.,
Kessler is out of college just two
years, with a BA in General
Studies from the University of
Maryland, College Park. His free
time after University hours has
certainly reflected his interest in
the theatre and sports, as well as
his strong attachment to Jewish
community life. He has taught
theatre improvisation, with focus
on social issues, at the
Washington Hebrew Congrega-
tion. In the Gaithersburg Con-
gregation, he led history and
philosophy classes to eighth
graders and also organized
weekend retreats and Shabbatons
at the same synagogue for the
teenage segment of the
Summers found Kessler in
responsible positions of ad-
ministration and programming
for the B'nai B'rith Beber Camp
in Wisconsin. He initiated creative
dramatics programs and sports
events, in addition to Shabbat
celebrations involving Jewish
folklore, song and dance for his
Obviously very interested in
theatre arts, Kessler, himself,
produced and directed plays for a
local summer theatre. He also ap-
peared in eight college perfor-
mances playing leading or
featured roles, from Shakespeare
to modern drama. Before moving
south to follow and engage in his
even mini-dishwashers. Included
in the week-end package were
breakfasts in the dining room
which were terrific, both parents
and progeny said especially the
croissant sandwiches. Lunches
and dinners were family choices
with a variety of ways to go:
either to dine in the suite, in the
hotel or tour the island looking for
an appealing restaurant.
But there was little time for
touring. JCC counselors provided
a full day schedule for children
giving the folks lots of free time.
Then there was a tennis tourna-
ment for adults, (won by Stu Tatz
and Bruce Conan), family
volleyball on the beach, shelling
parties with a cool arts and crafts
project for the children, following.
Still in their bathing suits, boys
and girls made stunning collages,
using styrofoam and the gorgeous
shells they had just collected on
the beach.
Everyone's making reserva-

TEL AVIV Histadrut Secretary-General Yisrael Kessar has
ordered all industrial enterprises controlled by the trades union
federation to break all commercial ties with South Africa, once
present contracts have expired. His move followed a complaint by
Civil Rights Movement Knesset member Ran Cohen that Iskoor,
a company owned by the Histadrut's giant Koor Industries, last
year bought $25 million worth of steel and scrap iron from South
JERUSALEM Israel's High Court, in a landmark decision,
urged that prisoners be allowed to have sexual relations on a
regular basis with their wives, or, in the view of one justice, with
their women friends if they are unmarried. Present laws and
regulations forbid this.
TEL AVIV Foreign Minister Shimon Peres and Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin have rejected an American compromise
proposal to resolve the Israel-Egyptian border dispute over Taba,
and decided to continue with international arbitration in Geneva.
Under the U.S. proposal, submitted to Jerusalem and Cairo three
months ago, Egypt would be given sovereignty over the whole
area while Israel would be granted full and more or less free ac-
cess to the Taba region.

My Shabbes
Every week in Shul he's there
To say, "Shabbat Shalom."
Somehow each time that he's with
He makes me feel at home
For in my Siddur should I lose
The place he shows me
And when I have no Chumash
His is what we share ..
When Scrolls are carried, one
thing he
Is always apt to do;
He; signals me to go with him
And kiss the Torah too .
So every Sabbath it's a treat
To have him sit with me ..
I know when we're together, I'm
In worthy company
How beautiful the Service is, -
How peaceful till the end.
Especially, when you sit with
A helpful Shabbes friend!

Chaplaincy Commission Volunteers
Devote Special Time to Visit Others
Rabbi Albert B. Schwartz,
director of the Federation's
Chaplaincy Commission has, once
again, organized a group of
dedicated and devoted volunteers
to visit the various nursing and
retirement homes in the North
Broward area to bring good cheer
for the coming New Year.
"If it was not for the corps of
volunteer rabbis, cantors and very
special community leaders, hun-
dreds of North Broward Jews
would be unable to celebrate the
High Holy Days," Schwartz
A recent final planning meeting
was held to put the finishing
touches on this year's visitation
schedule, making sure that no one
is left out.
On the list of places to be visited
From the BBYO Desk
The B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization (BBYO) the oldest
and largest Jewish youth group in
the world, is proud to report on
several local youth who par-
ticipated in its highly acclaimed
International Leadership Train-
ing Conference (ILTC). The ILTC
is a three-week leadership
seminar which has been described
by some as "the finest practical
leadership program in the coun-
try." Over 200 Jewish teens from
all over the world come together
to participate in a variety of pro-
grams which are designed to
develop leadership skills which
can be used in and out of BBYO.
The ILTC is held each summer at
the B'nai B'rith's Perlman Camp
in Starlight, Pennsylvania.
Local participants in this sum-
mer's ILTC included Jessica Arm-
strong of Plantation, Adrian
Neiman of Coral Springs, Brett
Berlin and Lew Minsky of Boca
Raton and Jill Robinson of
Hollywood. All currently serve as
leaders at the chapter, Council
and/or Regional levels of BBYO.
In BBYO leaders are not merely
born; they are made. Through par-
ticipation in the ILTC, and similar
leadership programs at the local
levels, Jewish youth learn
decision-making, interpersonal
and motivational skills which they
often find useful in later life.
Survivors Help Needed
The Office of Special Investiga-
tions needs assistance in locating
survivors who have knowledge of
the events that took place in
Salaspils and Sauriesi, Latvia dur-
ing World War II.
OSI is especially interested in
the fate of Jews and other
civilians in those areas, as well as
the activities of any paramilitary
units or auxiliary police in those
