From the Pompano Beach Community ...
Six Federation '88 Board Members
One of the first communities
in 1967 representing what is
now the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale was
the city of Pompano Beach
who even at that time knew
the importance of having a
united and centralized Jewish
voice in the North Broward
County areas.
Today, six men and women
sit on the all-important policy-
making body of the Jewish
community's central organiza-
tion, helping to continue with
the plans and programs of
their previous area counter-
parts, and working toward the
building of new and innovative
services and facilities.
They include: Irving
Libowsky, vice president;
board of directors members
Seymour Gerson, Phillip
Kanev, Alex Kutz, Jo Ann
Levy and community pulpit
member, Rabbi Samuel April.
According to Sheldon S^
Polish, Federation presidenB
"Our 1987-'88 board of direc-
tors is composed of men and
women who have their fingers
on the pulse of our com-
munity's heartbeat. They are
aware of the needs, services,
priorities and problems. There
is a long and diligent process
that is accomplished in the
selection and election of the
same, and these six leaders of
the Pompano Beach communi-
ty stand at the forefront of
everything positive in what we
at the Federation are trying to

humanitarian work for tens of
thousands of Jewish men,

Local Young Leader Finds Retreat 'Fascinating'
Paul Lehrer of Lehrer and
Co., and a member of Federa-
tion's board of directors,
wears many hats in the Fort
Lauderdale community as well
as nationally.
One that he wears with pride
is that of a Cabinet member on
the National United Jewish
Appeal Young Leadership
The Cabinet is comprised of
300 of the top young men of
various communities around
the country. Lehrer, along
with Richard Finkelstein and
Mark Levy, who also serves on
the executive committee of the
Cabinet, recently attended a
National UJA Cabinet Retreat
in Colorado. They were joined
by recent transfer from West
Palm Beach, Scott Rassler. as
representatives of the Fort
Lauderdale community at the
three-day retreat.
"The Young Leadership
Cabinet is comprised of
leaders from all over the coun-
try as well as representatives
from Israel," Lehrer stated.
"Over 250 out of the 300
members of the Cabinet at-
tended the retreat in Colorado
which signifies the deep com-
mitment of those involved."
According to Lehrer, this
retreat was held for men only.
Women have their own Young
Leadership Cabinet, which
recently met in Chicago.
Representing our community
there were Jo Ann Levy, Jo
Ann M. Levy and Paul's wife,
Marge Lehrer.
"The whole thing
astonishing to me,'
is quite
stated. "It is unreal to see 300
young men all under the age of
40 who are deeply committed
with their time as well as their
dollars who look upon their in-
volvement selflessly and
without any business or per-
sonal gain."
The three-day retreat pro-
vided an up-to-date account of
what's going on in the Jewish
community nationally, interna-
tionally, politically and the in-
volvement with Israel.
"We are the only group
associated with Federations
that go through full
disclosure," Lehrer stated.
"We have a four-hour training
session and then we all caucus.

Oceanside Cabinet.
"We have a lot of exciting
ventures planned for the com-

the residential markets on the
Oceanside and breaking them
down into easy territories;
solicitation of building cap-
tains and neighborhood chairs
and co-chairs; and organizing
our Business Coalition, under
the chairmanship of Bart
Weisman. The Coalition will
gather a group of businessmen
who will act as Business Coali-
tion chairmen who will go out
and solicit as well as educate
the businessmen of our corn-

munity. An exciting year is
"We have set a goal for the
Oceanside, both men and
women's campaigns, of
$1,750,000, and I'm sure with
the dedication and devotion of
the volunteers on the East
Side, our goal is well within
our reach.

Alan Margolies has been named
the new assistant executive direc-
tor for the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, it was
announced this week by Federa-
tion president Sheldon S. Polish
and executive director Kenneth B.

years conducted the annual cam-
paign as the assistant executive
and campaign director at the
Jewish Federation of Rhode
Island, was instrumental in help-
ing that community achieve in-
creased gift totals from $3.3 to
$4.3 million.
No stranger to North Broward

As the Shofer is sounded on Rosh Hashana, it summons humanity to unite in the cause
of freedom and justice. It bids mankind to heed the pleas of all who suffer from oppres-
sion and slavery. It rekindles the spirit of hope and peace for humanity. It evokes the day
in which Man met his soul. It's what makes us Jews.

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
We Are One Now & Always
As we approach our High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah
and Yom Kippur, we would like to wish you a happy,
healthy, and prosperous New Year 5748.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale/UJA,
is grateful for your support of our 1987 Campaign, whose
goal you helped us achieve.
The coming year brings with it a tremendous challenge
for our brothers and sisters in Israel and they will need our
full financial support to overcome the many problems that
face them.
In addition, we provide funding for a number of agencies
which are vital to the welfare of the entire Jewish com-
munity. Some of these are:
1. Kosher nutrition program for the elderly serving 1,000
hot meals a week, providing social contact and cultural
2. A Jewish Community Center which encompasses ac-
tivities for the young, the middle aged and the elderly.
3. Our Hebrew Day School and the Judaica High School
help fill the needs of the Jewish education of our youth.
4. Our Jewish Family Service plays a very important role
in helping individuals with personal problems.
The 1988 Campaign will start soon. When you are
solicited by one of your neighbors, please remember the
State of Israel is passing through one of the most critical
times in its history. Our Jewish people have never shirked
their obligations to the less fortunate of our people and to
the State of Israel.
We Are One And We Will Always Be One!
In To Be A Jew, an orthodox approach to Judaism, Rabbi Hayim
Halevy Donin notes that procreation is one of the major purposes
of marriage. The biblical commandment to be fertile and to in-
crease or multiply is not to be ignored or taken lightly.
It is a custom not to discuss the name of a child before birth.
Harvey Lutake in The Book of Jewish Customs relates that this
goes back to the superstition and fear of the Evil Eye. Naming a
child for a specific person carries with it the attributes and
characteristics of the honored party. On the same plain, public
discussion of the name invites possible evil spirits to exert some
force or control over the fetus. Joshua Trachenberg in Jewish
Magic and Superstition claims that "the essential character of
things and of men resides in their name. Therefore, to know a
name is to be privy to the secret of its owner's being and master
of his fate."
Why is a child identified as the offspring of his father since
traditional Judaism determines religion through the mother? Lut-
ske postulates that among the early Hebrews, leadership was
determined by the male, a somewhat chauvinistic concept by to-
day's standards. "From a man's loins" came offspring and, ipso
facto, the tribe continued. Therefore, identity followed the male.
The male child is named at his bris or brit milah, which occurs
eight days after birth, regardless of the day, including the sabbath
and Yom Kippur. A girl is named a week after her birth when the
father is called to the Torah and a prayer, mi she-beirakh, is
recited for the health of the mother and the child.
On the 31st day after birth the first male child with certain ex-
ceptions is to be redeemed at the Pidyon Ha-Ben. The Shulcahn
Aruch directs, "It is the duty of every Jew to redeem his son, who
is the mother's first born." Since God "acquired title" to Israel's
first born in the 10th plague on Egypt, these children require
Children are to honor their mother and father as it is command-
ed in Exodus 20:12. The Talmud teaches: Your Father and your
Mother,/ They have each a share in you:/ If you pay to both your
parents/ That respect which is their due,/ Then together with your
parents/ God considers He doth dwell,/ And by honoring your

Ten New Names of the Year
HAIFA Names make the
news. Some names appear and
reappear with great frequen-
cy. Others, new names, spring
into the headlines, enjoy a
brief notoriety, and then sub-
side into obscurity, or perhaps
do indeed remain on the news
scene ever thereafter.
It is our annual Rosh
Hashanah custom to review
the ten new names which
received top billing in Israel
during the past year, not in-
cluding, of course, those which
have appeared on previous
lists. Here are this year's ten
newcomers, in alphabetical
John Demjanjuk. Is he or is
he not Ivan the Terrible, the
Ukrainian guard who spread
terror among the Jewish in-
mates of the notorious
Treblinka death camp? For
many months the prosecution
presented its case, and the
defense is now seeking to show
that it is all a case of mistaken
identity, and Israel is holding
the wrong man.
Nizar Hindawi is now serv-
ing a 45-year jail term in Lon-
don, having been found guilty
of duping his pregnant girl
friend into boarding an Israel-
bound El Al plane, after plac-
ing in her suitcase a live bomb
which was intended to destroy
her and all aboard. Evidence
showed that he was under in-
structions from Syrian em-
bassy officials.
Ernst Japhet, once a
kingpin in Israel's banking
circles, has left the country
under a cloud after it was
revealed that his salary, pen-
sion and severance pay ran in-
to many millions of dollars.
The expose resulted in a
shakeup of the Israel banking
Susan Shoshana Miller,
converted to Judaism by a
Reform rabbi in the U.S., was
denied registry as a Jew in
Israel under a ruling from the
Orthodox-dominated Ministry
of the Interior. When the High
Court of Justice ruled that she
must be registered, the
Minister resigned but in the
meantime the object of all this
attention had left the country
and returned to Colorado. The
reverberations still echo on.
William Nakash, wanted by
the French for the 1983
murder of an Arab in Besan-
con, was subject to extradi-
Carl Alpert
tion. However, Israel's
Minister of Justice held off for
many months, claiming that
Nakash's life would be in,
danger in a French jail.
Israel's High Court overruled
him. Then Nakash's wife ob-
tained a rabbinical court ruling
forbidding him from leaving
the country. As of this writing
the problem is deadlocked.
Izat Nafsu, a member of the
loyal Circassian minority in
Israel, and an officer in the
Israel army, had in 1980 been
found guilty of serious security
offenses, and had been in
prison ever since, constantly
insisting on his innocence.
New evidence revealed that
his "confession" had been ex-
tracted under mental and
physical pressure, and he was
at last released.

Finance, last January patient-
ly and persistently pushed
through major elements of his
economic reform program,

One of Our Greatest Strengths is Heartfelt Commitment...
5748 A Time of Renewal and Rebuilding
Federation President
A great Jewish philosopher, Maimonides, explains that the ram's horn is
ig blown on Rosh Hashanah, our Jewish New Year, to galvanize all of the Jewish
I people. This has never been more true than in our new year 5748, because it
g will commence with the celebrations of two historic and wonderous events in
:j:j the annals of Judaism.
For what better time than now to herald the occasions of our Jewish Federa-
I tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale's 20th anniversary year and the State of
| Israel's 40th birthday.
Let us all dedicate the New Year to one of rebuilding and renewal for World
I Jewry. One of the greatest strengths of our people is the ability to renew
I ourselves, to rise above past tragedies and move forward. This Rosh
1 Hashanah, there permeated a new spirit that has resulted in the furthering of
% Judaism and all things Jewish.
g: Here in North Broward, our community will soon reap the benefits of the
| new David Posnack Hebrew Day School on the JCC campus in Plantation
I which will prepare our youth to become Jewish communal leaders of tomor-
I row,, enhancing their Jewish identity and heightening their Jewish
: awareness.
In the Netherlands, much of the Jewish population was destroyed in the
Holocaust. But in Amsterdam today, a synagogue complex that stood
deserted after World War II has been transformed into a stunning Jewish j
And in Turkey, the Neve Shalom synagogue, which the terrorists attacked i
just a year ago, will be the site of High Holiday services, newly restored and :
rededicated. Truly a fitting memorial for 21 of our Jewish brethren who gave
their lives to pray.
And what better feeling than knowing that in the Jewish Homeland, tens of ;
thousands of Ethiopian Jewish boys and girls are happy and smiling, no longer i
hungry, homeless and frightened, and a viable member of the Israeli:
In the past year, the family of Federation has benefited greatly by all of your :
heartfelt generosity and deep commitment. We know that every moment is a :
moment of grace, every hour an offering; not to share them would mean to
betray them. Our lives no longer belong to us alone; they belong to all those
who need us desperately, be it here at home, in Israel or around the world.
From the officers, board members and Federation staff, let me wish you and
yours a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. L'Shana Tovah!
An Invitation to the Community
Rabbi Hayim ofZans told the following parable:
President North Broward Board of Rabbi*
"A man had been wandering about in the forest for
several days, unable to find a way out. Finally, he saw a
man approaching him in the distance. His heart was filled
with joy. "Now I shall surely find out which is the right way
out of the forest," he thought to himself.
When they neared each other, he asked the man,
"Brother, will you please tell me the way out of the forest?
I have been wandering about in here for several days, and I
am unable to find my way out."
Said the other to him, "Brother, I do know the way out,
either, for I too have been wandering about for many days
in here. But this much I can tell you do not go the way
that I have gone, for I know that it is not the way. Now,
come, let us search for the way out together."
Rabbi Hayim added: "So it is with us. The one thing that
each of us knows is that the way we have been going until
now is not the way. Now come let us join hands and look for
the way together."
The rabbis of North Broward see it as their duty all year
round to help take our brothers and sisters by the hand and
try to help them find the way. In tragedy and in joy, in
weekday and Sabbath, the rabbis are here as spiritual
leaders to help increase Jewish consciousness, commitment
to Jewish tradition and practice, and to raise the spiritual
level of our entire community. Frustrating as it is for us,
the majority of our community does not yet belong to a con-
gregation. The majority of our community does not even
know who the congregational rabbis are. Unfortunately,
the first time many in this community meet a community
rabbi is at a funeral parlor while making arrangements.
At this time of new beginning, and as we enter the period
of Divine judgement, we wish to offer our invitation to the
community as a whole to become affiliated, to join our con-
gregations, to become a part of our extended family, and to
allow us the opportunity of going hand-in-hand to finding a

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
income. 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 gains pro-
perty to charity makes even
more sense under Tax Reform.

In honor of her parents, the estate of Sarah (Sally) Dermer recent-
ly bequested $20,000 to the Federation's Foundation of Jewish
Philanthropies. Presenting the check to Foundation chairman
Jacob Broazki, left, were Mrs. Dermer's brother Ralph Malon
and his wife Peggy of Plantation. The sum of$10,000 will be used
for the Project Renewal sister city ofKfar Saba, Israel, and a like
sum for the Home for the Elderly Project in North Broward
County. Each location will have a plaque that will read,
"Donated by Sally Dermer in Memory of her parents Peter and

Young Women's Leadership Cabinet at Work
Jo Ann Levy said, "It
revitalizes me every year."
For Amy Dean of Miami, it is
"the most sophisticated and
dynamic network in the
Marge Lehrer called it "an
incredible group of women."
"It" is the Young Women's
Leadership Cabinet, a national
group of Jewish women whose
energy, talent and commit-
ment are clearly extraor-
dinary. Created by the United
Jewish Appeal in 1976, the
Cabinet's purpose is to iden-
tify, educate, motivate and
train young women to be
future national Jewish leaders.
They are ambitious goals, re-
quiring a stiff set of eligibility
criteria. High on the list is at-
tendance at an annual Cabinet
retreat, held this year in
Chicago from July 29 through
Aug. 2; Lehrer and Levy were
delegates from Greater Fort
Levy is a veteran of such
retreats, having attended two
before this year. But she is still
excited when she relates that
the fund-raising caucus among
Cabinet members raised more
than $1,000,000 for the second
consecutive year. Members are
required to pledge $1,500 dur-
ing their first year, in addition
to a separate Project Renewal
But fund-raising is only part
of the Cabinet story. Amy
Dean, of Miami, who will chair
the Cabinet next year, finds it
difficult to restrain her en-
thusiasm for its members.
"They are a great group of
ladies," she said. Cabinet
membership opens the door to
a national network for
business, moral support and
new ideas.
"We're all doers. Any pro-
ject we're involved in, we have
a great network to support us,
whether it's fund-raising for a
political candidate, or paying
for surgery for a child in
need," Dean said.
In addition, Cabinet
membership helps develop
"very strong leadership train-
ing skills," Levy said.
Members are trained through
seminars, lectures, workshops
and a self-education program
Women's Enrichment Series
Sponsors East Side Book Review
Florence K. Straus, Women's
Division vice president of Educa-
tion, has announced that Esther
Lerner has been appointed as
Chairman of the new East Side
Book Review Series, sponsored by
the Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale in cooperation
with the Central Agency for
Jewish Education (CAJE).
According to Lerner, who is the
immediate past president of the
Women's Division, the East Side
Book Review Series has been
designed to provide an opportuni-
ty for Jewish enrichment for the
women of Fort Lauderdale. There
will be a nominal charge of $18 for
the series of three book reviews to
cover program expenses.
Lerner will host the first session
on Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 5 at
her home on the Gait Ocean Mile.
The guest reviewer will be com-
munity leader Nan Rich, president
of the Central Agency for Jewish
Education and a former regional
president of National Council of
Jewish Women. Rich will review
"Enemy in the Promised Land:
An Egyptian Woman's Journey
into Israel" by Sana Hasan.
The second session will be
hosted by Pola Brodzki on Tues-
day, Nov. 9 when Dr. Abraham
Gittelson will review "A Certain
People" by Charles Silberman.
The series will conclude on Tues-
day, Dec. 15 when hostess Anita
Perlman welcomes Holocaust
scholar Dr. Josephine Knopp who
will review selections from the
works of Elie Wiesel.
Reservations are required for
the East Side Book Review series,

for which they pay a yearly
fee. In turn, they are expected
to accept speaking, soliciting,
training and consulting
assignments within their
Attending her first Cabinet
retreat, Marge Lehrer was im-
pressed with the group's
warmth. "These high-powered
Jewish women give you the
feeling you really belong to
this group, even though you
never met them before," she
Barbara Wiener agreed. A
founding member of the
Cabinet, and chairman during
1980-81, she said, "My closest
friends in the world all come
from the Cabinet. They're
from all over the country ..
I've run into them accidentally
in Israel. You really become in-
timate friends."
One offshoot of Cabinet
work that appeals to Lehrer is
the opportunity to learn more
about Judaism. She is presi-
dent of her sisterhood at Tem-
ple Bat Yam, but considers
Cabinet membership a spr-
ingboard to more local involve-
ment in Federation. "I'm still
looking for my niche."
Levy said that for many
women, Jewish identify
fostered by the Cabinet
"spreads into other areas of
life." They decide to become
more involved in their temples,
or begin to keep kosher homes.
This year's retreat devoted
special time to the plight of
Soviet Jewry, hearing from
several emigrants who had to
leave family behind. "It was
emotional," Lehrer said. Levy
was so moved, she has ten-
tatively planned to travel to
the Soviet Union next Spring,
as a Cabinet representative.
As a member of the Fort
Lauderdale Women's Division
Executive Committee and
Campaign co-chair, Levy's
commitment of time locally is
substantial. Still, she agreed to
play a major role in the bi-
annual Washington Con-
ference, a joint project with
UJA's Young Leadership
Cabinet. She will co-chair

For Levy and Lehrer,
Cabinet membership has
meant opportunities for travel,
education, networking, per-
sonal growth and new friend-
ships. But, because it functions
on a national level, many
women are unaware that it ex-
ists. Incoming chair Dean
wants to change that.
"There's no identity of the
Cabinet as functioning in the
community," she said. "I want
to make it a household word."
"I want women to know that
we are a group of highly train-
ed, sophisticated ladies, who
have access to a national net-
work, and they should take ad-
vantage of that."

50 Plus Community Leaders Named to '88 Campaign Cabinet...
Fall Months Call for Intensive UJA Strategy & Solicitation Effort
Commitment is among the
most common of concepts to
those who devote themselves
to the Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
dimension of Jewish communi-
ty service. It is, in many ways,
the very foundation upon
which UJA success and pro-
gress rest.
The term commitment,
however, seems insufficient
when describing the campaign

Oshry, who recently return-
ed to Greater Fort Lauderdale
after attending national
United Jewish Appeal leader-
ship meetings, met with the

objectives in the next 60 days.
He stated that, "the next two

These were the words of
East Fort Lauderdale resident
and Federation board member
Ludwik Brodzki, chairman of
the Federation 20/40 Anniver-
sary committee, who announc-
ed that residents from
throughout the area are
meeting with agencies,
organizations, temples and

cultural, educational, and
other events during these
special occasions.
In a recent meeting with
Federation executive director
Kenneth B. Bierman, and
Miami's Israel Programs Of-
fice director and community
Shaliach Raffi Miller, some of
the ideas of events and pro-
grams were being formulated,
as an outline was being
prepared and submitted for
committee discussion and con-
sideration. Others taking part
in the initial planning session
included Dr. Abraham J. Git-
Ludwik Brodzki
telson, CAJE and Federation's
director of education, JCC
assistant director David
Surowitz and Federation's
communications director Mar-
vin Le Vine.
According to Miller, the
Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
tion is working in conjunction
with the other areas in plann-
ing for among other programs,
a main event to take place on
April 17. Other ideas include a
parade complete with floats, a
ship regada, concert,
Chanukah Torch Run, and
Israel Film Festival.
In North Broward County,
both the Central Agency for
Jewish Education together
with the Jewish Community
Center and other agencies will
conduct art and essay competi-
tion for children, special all-
day programs and other
celebrations. The group will
meet on a number of occasions
to plan and coordinate the ac-
tivities during the coming
Brodzki indicated that Miller
will meet with the Federation
20/40 committee and inter-
exchange ideas as to joint ef-
forts with the Miami and other
South Florida communities.
He emphasized that the fund-
raising and other campaign
events will all be tied to the
two celebrations in addition to
the special performances, ex-
hibitions, lectures and

CAMPAIGN '88 Federation/United
Help World Jewry It's The Chance of a Lifetime!
Executive Vice President
and General Chairman
There is probably no more
difficult time for those who
work in our Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
campaign than now because
agencies and other organiza-
tions have finalized their
budget projections and
Federation takes action on
the forthcoming year's alloca-
tions and needs.
This year, it was particular-
ly difficult. The 1987 Federa-
tion/UJA campaign has
achieved nearly 8 percent
more in funds, and despite
this heartfelt effort, increase
in funding for the more than
50 Federation supported
beneficiaries and agencies
has called for an '88 drive of
$7 million plus to help the
tens of thousands of Jewish
men, women and children, in
our metropolis here at home,
in Israel and in 34 other
Consider if you will that
even though some of the
agencies have other sources
of funding, many Federa-
tion/UJA agencies have only
one: our annual campaign.
As we enter the 20 year
history of our major central
Jewish organization, we are
fully aware of the explosion of
population in our community
from the 300 families in '67 to
the 150,000 plus residents in
'87. And with the daily influx
of 1,000 newcomers to South
Florida daily, our rolls also in-
crease some 20 percent.
Where do we begin to find the
dollars necessary to maintain
the social service and other
welfare programs that now
have expanded greatly? The
demand for the education,
cultural and humanitarian
facilities and aid has been
overwhelming, albeit heart-
warming, that it is crucial, no
imperative, that we review
and explore every avenue for
Within the coming months,
the Federation will launch the
"Anniversaries 20/40" UJA
campaign, in celebration of
our 20th and Israel's 40th bir-
thdays, to help meet this
burgeoning request for life-
giving, life-enriching
I have just recently return-
ed from the East Coast where
I was honored by the New
York Federation/UJA and
while there, I met with na-
tional leaders who emphasiz-
ed the importance of
American Jewry in the '88
UJA campaign. Together
with the campaign team that
we have compiled, the North
Broward community all 20
municipalities and unincor-
porated Broward will be
asked to be a part of this
magnificent undertaking.
In the past, we have come
to you for your commitment,
and you have responded, but
your action only reflects some
31,000 or 20 percent of the
people, which means less than
a quarter of our community is
expected to carry the burden
for the rest.
As a professional and
businessman, those kind of
statistics would prove to be a
hardship, and it would
become more difficult to
maintain the services, yet
alone the high level of service
we provide.
This is our community
one we are all proud of as
well we should be. The results
reflect just that, 52.3 percent
or more than $3.6 million to
Israel and overseas; and some
$3.4 million for local and na-
tional agencies and services
projected for '88.
Through our Federation,
we respond to the plethora of
responsibilities in our ongo-
ing effort to sustain Jewish
life in North Broward Coun-
ty. We help to combat anti-
Semitism; interpreting Israel
to an evermore questioning
press and community; rein-
vigorating interest in the
struggles to free Soviet
Jewry, bring the Jewish com-
munity together for common
celebrations and com-
memorations (such as Israel
Independence Day, Yom
HaShoah), and this year, we
will work hand-in-hand with
North Broward Board of Rab-
bis and president Rabbi Paul
Plotkin, in bringing about a
greater cohesiveness with the
area synagogues and
membership in furthering our
cause of strengthening and
building in our Jewish
When air is said and done,
this is our Federation. The
raison d'etre for this Jewish
Federation, or any Jewish
Federation, is to help Jews
sustain their Jewishness
within a Jewish community.
That's why we support the
services we do. That's why
we have the programs we
have. That's why we exist!
Let us help our Jewish
brethren do just that.
You'll be happy you did
care, and they will be happier
because you cared to help and
give your very best!

At his Bar Mitzvah, Scott

very emotional. Everyone was
very proud of him.

Since coming to South
Florida, Tamarac's Harold L.
Oshry, the Jewish Federation
executive vice president and
1988 general campaign chair-
man, has not forgotten or been
forgotten by the tens of
thousands of UJA-Federation
men and women in Greater
New York, because of his
outstanding achievements for
that community's major
Jewish philanthropy.
In recognition of his 30 years
of dedicated service and his
heartfelt generosity as a
leader of the Greater New
York UJA-Federation cam-
paign cabinet, chair of the
Auto Industry, the Queens In-
dustrial Division and the South
Shore committee, Harold was
recently the guest of honor at
a special luncheon held by the
New York leadership.
According to chairman San-
ford Zukerbrot, "It was a
privilege to have Harold on
this special occasion and I join
with his peers, some of the
leading businessmen and en-
trepreneurs in Greater New
York, in paying tribute to him
as one of the truly remarkable
men in our metropolitan com-
munity. His work on behalf of
tens of thousands of Jewish
men, women and children has
left a lasting impression on our
Federation community, and
although Harold is proving to
be the most ablest of philan-
thropists and directors in
South Florida, continues to
lend his support and commit-
ment to his brethren in New
Harold, who has already an-
nounced a record-breaking
goal for the 1988 Federa-

dicated that he was indeed
honored and proud to have
received this special honor
from his fellow workers,
friends and business
associates, and indicated,
"The work that I have ac-
complished for my brethren
has been done with great
pleasure, and having said this,
I can state that social service
and humanitarian needs know
no bounds, be it New York,
South Florida, Israel, or
around the world. Both Claire
and I are grateful to the New
York UJA-Federation and to
the Greater Fort Lauderdale
Federation for all of the
honors that have been bestow-
ed on us. Now the real work is
at hand, and for the next few
months, we are prepared to
roll up our sleeves and solicit
the pledges, for we must all
remember that we are, all 'One

CRC Responds to
Pioneer Days Events
Editori Note: In light of the fact that the Broward County
Material Commission had scheduled pioneer days on the weekend
of Oct. S and U, which is Yom Kippur, the CRC of the Jewish
Federation responded with the following statement which was call-
ed into the Sun-Sentinel and Miami Herald, but never published.
The Community Relations Committee of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale finds it inconceivable that the
Broward County Historical Commission would have scheduled a
major community-wide activity on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of
the Jewish year.
The lack of concern that the Commission displayed in schedul-
ing Pioneer Days without the slightest regard for the Jewish
residents and honorees in the important birthday celebration of
Broward County, is painful to the entire Jewish community.
Since the Commission has stated that the date cannot be chang-
ed, the Community Relations Committee is relieved and pleased
that all of the opening day ceremonies scheduled for Saturday,
Oct. 3, have been cancelled. The ceremony honoring the 68 local
residents will be held on Sunday, Oct. 4.
The CRC looks forward to a closer working relationship with
the Historical Commission so that this type of situation need
never occur again.

Perhaps, this is the year that
Jews will again be allowed the
freedom to leave the Soviet
Union. Although the figures are
still small, they seem encourag-
ing. In 1979, the peak year of
Jewish emigration, more than
51,000 left Russia. In all of 1986,
that figure was only 914. So far
this year, Moscow has granted ex-
it visas to 4,681 Jews. Most of us
are aware of the long and difficult
struggle Jews must endure once
they ask to leave "Mother
Russia." Since April, Soviet of-
ficials have been granting about
800 visas a month to Jews who say
they plan to emigrate to Israel.
For a variety of reasons, many of
them are actually bound for
America. Most of them wish to be
reunited with family members
who have previously left lands of
oppression. What happens to
these people when they reach our
shores? The United States laws
governing incoming foreigners
are sometimes stringent, always
complicated and all too often .
decidedly unfair.
HIAS, the Hebrew Immigrant
Aid Society, funded by your
Federation/UJA dollars, is usually
the first contact that many Jewish
immigrants have in this country.
This past April 8, 81 Soviet Jews,
the largest group of Soviet
refugees to enter the United
States in five years, arrived at
New York's Kennedy Interna-
tional Airport. Also on the flight
from Rome, enroute to the U.S.,
were 17 other Jewish refugees (11
Iranians and six Romanians).
HIAS was there to greet them
and help them through their initial
experiences in this country. One
of the main functions of HIAS is
to place these newly arrived in-
dividuals with relatives living in
various communities across the
I. Resnikoff A. Harel
United States. This is done with
the help of the local Jewish Family
Service Agencies.
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County, likewise a reci-
pient agency of Federation/UJA,
has placed Jewish immigrants
from many countries over the past
several years. JFS has continued
to help refugees learn English,
find homes, obtain jobs, and rapid-
ly integrate into American socie-
ty. At the present time, the
Federal government requires a
close relative to vouch for each in-
coming person. This relative must
agree to take full economic
responsibility for the new arrival.
Someone reaching America,
whose son or daughter is a citizen
of our country, is considered an
'immigrant.' If the child has not
yet become an American citizen
the parent is considered a
'refugee.' The benefits bestowed
are entirely different. It is in-
teresting to note that neither the
'immigrant' nor the 'refugee'
status is dependent on the in-
dividual but on that of a relative
residing in the United States. Yet
most of those who are assuming
responsibility are, themselves,
newly established in this country.
With few exceptions, they are
usually not wealthy. Indeed, they
very often have difficulty making
ends meet and are not in a secure
financial position.
One woman, recently arrived
from the USSR, has a son in Fort
Lauderdale and another on the
west coast. The local son is not an
American citizen, as is his
brother. The mother chooses to
live with the son in Florida, but
cannot receive 'refugee' benefits
because her other son is a U.S.
citizen. As a citizen, he must
assume all financial responsibility
for his elderly mother. There are
no U.S. government measures
available for this woman. She

must reside in this country for two
years before becoming eligible for
any U.S. programs. If, however,
neither son had become a citizen
she would be entitled to the
Refugee Assistance Program
(RAP) which offers assistance for
the first 18 months in this
RAP provides a monthly sup-
port payment of $150 (to include
rent) for each client. They also are
entitled to medicaid help and
receive $22 a month toward
medical prescriptions. Although
this is not a great deal of money, it
does help ease the financial
burden on people who have, for
the most part arrived penniless.
The Broward County Resettle-
ment Program (BCRP) is a 100
percent federally funded program
limited to employment related
services. They allot 85 percent to
assist refugees with employment
and 15 percent for day care, legal
services and vocational training.
There are also ESL (English Se-
cond Language) lessons offered at
no cost in the Community Room of
the Coral Springs Mall. JFS ac-
companies people both to these
classes and to various locally
available programs, which is most
helpful to these people unfamiliar
with the area.
Our Jewish Family Service pro-
fessionals and volunteers have
done much to facilitate the reset-
tlement of Jews from other lands.
During 1979, when the greatest
influx of refugees from Russia ar-
rived, Israel Resnikoff was at the
Fort Lauderdale airport to greet
at least 90 percent of the arrivals.
Mr. Resnikoff is a long standing
member of our Federation Board
and has headed the JFS Resettle-
ment Committee from its incep-
tion. Izzy has stated, "When
Russia opened its doors in 1979,
the committee was very busy.
Most of those refugees did not
have relatives in this area. Until
an apartment could be located for
them, they would be housed in a
local motel. Food, clothing and
medical care was provided. Then,
as now, training for jobs and
schools for the children were of
paramount importance. This is
not an easy task, but we helped
many Jewish families to start new
lives in South Florida.
He continued, "We evaluated
each family. We would see what
they needed and try to provide it.
Committee members often accom-
panied entire families to the
supermarket, not only to purchase
food for them, but to acquaint
them with the process. We went
with them to the doctor's office or
to visit the dentist. Many of our
finest local Jewish doctors and
dentists still continue to donate
their services to Jews newly arriv-
ed from lands of oppression. Peo-
ple have given clothing and fur-
niture to help resettle their fellow
Jews in a new environment. They
offered jobs and helped in-
dividuals with their English
language studies. I am sure that if
the gates open again our com-
munity will again respond, just as
Broward County has recently
become home to both Russian and
Iranian Jewish refugees. There
are, at present, several
Refuseniks waiting in Rome to
enter the United States. Indica-
tions are that they, too, might
decide to settle in our area. Aaron
Harel, newly appointed co-chair of
the Jewish Family Service Reset-
tlement Committee said, "Izzy
Resnikoff has done a wonderful
job for many years. It will be a
pleasure working with him. I join
with Izzy, and the rest of the com-
mittee, in promising that we will
do our part in the resettlement of
.lews from other lands. To those
who are about to start their lives
over, we reaffirm the pledge made
long ago that, 'No Jew shall ever
become a ward of the State.' Let
us hope this will be a very busy
Not Your Typical Summer Vacation ...
Young Americans Head for Israel's Project Renewal
UJA Press Service
Editor'* Note: The Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale'8 Project Renewal
campaign for the city of Kfar
Saba, Israel, has to date raised
$22S,J,28 in '87, and the count goes
on. Under the chair of Federation
vice president Alvera Gold, who
also is president of the Women's
Division, the life-enhancing funds
have helped the twinned city grow
from a struggling ghetto to a thriv-
ing neighborhood.
TEL GIBORIM, Summer of '87
In an era when yuppies have
replaced hippies, 400 young
Americans bucked the trend and
headed for some of Israel's
poorest neighborhoods this sum-
mer to get closer to their U.S.
communities' twinned
neighborhoods in Israel.
They came as volunteers and as
guests, ranging in age from 15 to
28. With typical American in-
genuity, they left their mark with
a Liberty Bell-shaped garden in
Ramat Hashikma, a
neighborhood-wide "Hands
Across Tel Giborim," and
youngsters around the country
who now feel closer to them and to
the English language thanks to
English Day Camp.
The common bond is Project
Renewal. The ambitious undertak-
ing started 10 years ago with
American Jews getting involved
in changing life in some of Israel's
poorest neighborhoods, working
through the UJA-Federation
Campaign. Today, 271 American
communities are twinned with 56
previously neglected
neighborhoods throughout Israel.
Most of these Israelis arrived
from North Africa and Asia in the
1950s. As Israel progressed, they
were left behind poorly housed,
poorly educated, and out of touch
with the country's political
Since the start of Project
Renewal, American Jews have
raised $192 million through the
UJA-Federation Campaign.
They've gotten involved with
their twinned neighborhoods,
working on projects in partner-
ship with the Israeli Government.
This summer, the younger
generation of American Jews has
been deepening the Project
Renewal connections throughout
Israel. The "Roots" mission from
Philadelphia joined up with four
Philadelphia volunteers in the Tel
Giborim neighborhood of Holon,
south of Tel Aviv, for "Hands
Across Tel Giborim." Some 500
residents of all ages joined hands
across the neighborhood, climax-
ing weeks of preparation by the
American volunteers at the Pro-
ject Renewal day camp. Rachel
Gafni, one of the volunteers, ex-
pressed the hope that the program
would encourage community par-
ticipation in future Tel Giborim
activities. As one local child was
heard to say, "I'm gonna
remember this."
In what could have been a scene
from Sholom Aleichem, New York
City volunteers in their Project
Renewal neighborhood of
Hatikvah in Tel Aviv have been
welcoming Shabbat from a horse
and wagon rented from a local en-
trepreneur. Their mobile "Kab-
balat Shabbat" makes its way
through Hatikvah on Friday after-
noons, with the American
volunteers singing Shabbat songs.
They are among the 15 young
New Yorkers spending two mon-
ths in what was once one of the
most depressed sections of Tel
Aviv. Since its start in 1979, Pro-
ject Renewal has transformed
both the surface and the spirit of
the neighborhood, and the
volunteers were enthusiastically
received by residents. The
Americans worked with troubled
youngsters, tutored school
children, visited the elderly at
home, and painted a wall mural.
The English Day Camp
pioneered by Minnesota
volunteers seven years ago has
now become an institution,
adopted through Project Renewal
in nine neighborhoods. Jill Pupa
was among the young adults runn-
ing the English Day Camp in Neve
Sharett, the Tel Aviv
neighborhood twinned with
Cleveland. She worked on
developing a new theme each day,
with songs, dances, games and
English classes built around it.
The English Day Camp in the Min-
neapolis twinned neighborhood of
Givat Olga in Hadera had 12 and
13-year-old campers busy cleaning
up a very dirty planet on "Space
Other young American
volunteers combined touring
Israel with neighborhood im-
provement projects in Renewal
communities. High school
students painted shelters and the
homes of the elderly and assisted
at day camps in Maalot, Har-
risburg's twinned neighborhood;
Herzliya, Boston's Renewal twin;
Sela in Risho LeZion. Nashville's
twin; Stern Street in Jerusalem,
Rhode Island's twinned
neighborhood; Kiryat Shmona,
San Francisco's Renewal
neighborhood; and Yahud,
Atlanta's twin.
Israelis' requests for Project
Renewal summer programs grow
each year. What began modestly
in 1980 with the first group of
volunteers from Minneapolis and
St. Paul coming to their twinned
neighborhood of Givat Olga, has
gradually become an important
part of Project Renewal.

parents/ You do honor God as well.
On the other side parents liave a duty to educate their children
not only by formal education but in the ways of the world. Equally
4B important is to teach children to observe the commandments,
the mitzvot.
So why all this business about children? On Aug. 4 with dawn
breaking, an incredible bundle of indescribable joy presented
herself to tired and sleepless parents. Upon hearing the exciting
news, "Granny" Darling, the maternal grandmother, levelled.
"Bubbe" Lefco levelled along with "Zeyde" Lefco. The rest of the
family levelled too. The house was bursting with all the levelling.
Sweet and beautiful Leah Marissa had finally arrived after her
just slightly longer than nine-month odyssey.
The Talmud says, "The sheep will follow one another: A
daughter acts as acts the mother." Although too early to confirm,
it has been observed that Leah has her mother's funny feet and
her father's pleasant disposition.
Maimonides once said, "Even if a person has fulfilled the com-
mandment to be fruitful and increase, he is still enjoined not to
refrain from fruitfullness and increase as long as he is able, for he
who adds life in Israel is as he who built a world."
It's also too early to consider this what with the baby naming,
the bat mitzvah, and the wedding to be planned!

Jews Present 'Positive' On Session With Pope
Jewish Floridian Staff WriUr
Jewish leaders who met witt
Pope John Paul II in Miami
Sept. 11 emerged with an
energized and positive outlook
on Jewish-Catholic relations,
and agreed that the Pontiff
made significant but not ear-
thshaking pronouncements.
Almost 200 Jewish leaders,
including 39 from the Greater
Miami area, watched the Pope
and Jewish representative
Rabbi Mordecai Waxman,
honorary president of the
Synagogue Council of
America, exchange statements
that had been drafted prior to
the meeting.
Only one time did the au-
dience interrupt the Pope's
speech with applause, and that
was when the Pope, referring
to the Holocaust, said, mutual
respect must be promoted and
future generations taught
about the Holocaust "so that
never again will such a horror
be possible. Never again!"
"The strong statement on
the Holocaust, expressing the
fact that this was a unique
Jewish agony was very
heartening," said Rabbi
Haskell Bernat, recently ap-
pointed national associate ex-
ecutive director of the
American Jewish Congress.
He formerly led Temple Israel
"The Pope used a very, very
important buzzword when he
said 'Never Again' twice,
because, as you know, 'Never
Again' was the expression of
the most militant aspects of
Jewish self-assertion during
these last 10 years. And for
the Pope to identify with that
was a very important signal to
the Jewish community," Rabbi
Bernat said.
The Pope's speech touched
on theological issues as well as
the Holocaust, anti-Semitism,
and the role of Israel.
He began his speech by em-
phasizing "our faith in one
God, who chose Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob, and made
with them a Covenant of eter-
nal love, which was never
By referring to the Covenant
between God and the Jews as
one which was never revoked,
the pontiff differed from some
Protestant denominations and
former church teachings that
the Jews broke their Covenant
with God, and therefore only
the Christian faith had a Cove-
nant to keep.
He spoke about Catholic and
Jewish emigration to America
and the interreligious dialogue
that has developed as a result.
of the exercise of religious
"At the same time, our com-
mon heritage, task and hope
do not eliminate our distinctive
identities," the Pope said.
"Because of her specific Chris-
tian witness, the Church must
preach Jesus Christ to the
world ... At the same time,
we recognize and appreciate
the spiritual treasures of the
Jewish people and their
religious witness to God."
Jewish leaders appeared
pleased that the Pope
recognized the Jewish desire
for the Holocaust to be viewed
by the Vatican as a unique
Jewish experience.
The Pope, speaking of the
Shoah, said the event was a
"ruthless and inhuman at-
tempt to exterminate the
Jewish people in Europe ...
including women and children,
the elderly and the sick ex-
terminated only because they
were Jews."
Jewish leaders said they
were not surprised that the
Pope continued to remain
silent on the issue of his visit
with Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim this summer. But
several Jewish leaders said the
Pope's statements about the
Holocaust, and his denuncia-
tion of anti-Semitism were in-
tended as a subtle reference to
Waldheim, accused of Nazi
atrocities during World War
Jewish leaders also did not
expect the Pope to announce
that the Vatican would open
diplomatic relations with
They did notice, however,
that the Pope said the Jewish
people "have a right to a
homeland, as does any civil na-
tion, according to interna-
tional law."
But, he continued, "What
has been said about the right
to a homeland also applies to

many of whom remain
homeless and refugees ... It is
time to forge those solutions
which will lead to a just, com-
plete and lasting peace in that
area. For this peace I earnest-

The Pope charismatically
warmed the audience when he
ended his speech by saying,

"Shalom, Shalom," which is
Hebrew for peace. Then he
said, "Shabbat Shalom! Shana
Tovah vi-Hatimah Tovah!,"
the traditional Jewish New
Year's wish for a good year.
After the meeting, The
Jewish Floridian spoke with
several Jewish leaders about

"The most important point
is that the Pope and Jewish
leadership meeting was held,"
said Rabbi Solomon Schiff, ex-
ecutive vice president of the
Rabbinical Association of
Greater Miami. "I think that's
significant because for 2,000
years we didn't talk to each
"We didn't hear his an-
nouncement that he would
recognize the state of Israel
but we didn't expect to hear
that. On the other hand, he
gave us something that's very
Rabbi Waxman
vital in that regard, namely, he
recognized that Israel has a
right to exist in security and
tranquility. He also made a
statement that there are no
theological barriers for the
Vatican to recognize the state
of Israel. Whatever problems
there are, are diplomatic."
Norma Orovitz, president of
the Southeast Region of the
American Jewish Congress,
was one of the participants
who got a chance to shake the
Pope's hand and look into his
"He was shorter than I ex-
pected," she said, adding, "He
wears his grandeur humbly,
his manner was less austere."
Orovitz said the matter of
the meeting was not as impor-
tant as the meeting itself. "I
think, frankly, that the success
of the meeting will probably be
measured to use a metaphor
against the ruler of time."
"I don't think there were
any surprises," said Rabbi
Herbert Baumgard, rabbi
emeritus of Temple Beth Am
and past president of the
Synagogue Council of
America. "The thing that im-
pressed me was the expression
of increased sensitivity to the
relationship between the
Holocaust and the establish-
ment of the state of Israel. I
don't think the Catholic
Church has understood the
connection between the two."
Mark Freedman, executive
director of the Southeast

Jewish Congress, said that
anyone looking for some ex-
planation of the Vatican
meeting with Waldheim, will
probably not get it and the

to boycott the Miami meeting

changed their minds after the

The Days of Awe -
The Sound of
the Shofar
By DR.
CAJE Director of Education
The Days of Awe, Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur,
are unlike any of the other ma-
jor Jewish festivals. They do
not have their origins in the
great historic events of the
Jewish people, nor do they
reflect any relationship to the
Land of Israel. Rather they
focus on the cosmic issues of
God as the Creator of the
Universe, of the world as a
place of meaning and purpose,
and of man being judged by the
Almighty as to whether he has
fulfilled his role as co-partner
with God in sustaining the
world through deeds of loving
The central theme,
therefore, of the Days of Awe
is that of judgment, and the
dominant metaphor is that of a
trial. Mankind stands on trial
literally for life itself, sustain-
ed only by the profound faith
that its fate lies in the compas-
sion and love of the Almighty.
The liturgy for Rosh Hashanah
(The Day of Judgment) and
Yom Kippur is suffused with
exhortations for man to
evaluate his own past
endeavors and to be
strengthened by the faith that
God will judge his life in the
coming year in mercy as well
as in judgment.
During the Days of Awe, the
individual is deeply conscious
of his vulnerability, and of the
need for "teshuva," repen-
tance. The ultimate purpose of
the ten-day period between
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kip-
pur is the examination of one's
life, a 'check-up' not necessari-
ly physically or even
psychologically, but rather a
spiritual 'heshbon hanefesh,'
an accounting of what one has
been, and what one could truly
be. In a sense that which
threatens our real living is not
so much physical infirmities as
serious as they may be. Rather
it is the psychic numbing that
all human beings experience as
they grow and develop, the
routinization of life, the
avoidance of responsibility,
both personal and communal,
the deadly habituation that
envelops daily living ... these
are the true enemies. Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur
charge us to re-examine our
lives, so that we never lose the
capacity to give unique and
meaningful responses to life in
all its demands and challenges.
The process of rebirth is that
of 'teshuva,' repentence,
which in Jewish life, is
characterized by three
elements. First, the recogni-
tion and confession of wrong-
doing. Second, the regret and
rejection of that which one has
done. Third, the commitment
to a turning away to a new life,
to new actions, to new life pat-
terns, that reflect authentici-
ty, commitment, concern, com-
passion and continued self-
examination and spiritual ten-
sion and growth.
All the elements of the Days
of Awe, from the time of
preparation during the month
of Elul that preceeds Rosh
Hashanah, through the stirr-
ing prayers and the sounding
of the Shofar on Rosh
Hashanah. through the
repeated confessions of tran-
sgressions during Yom Kippur
to the last climactic moments
prior to the blast of the shofar
concluding the Neilah service
as Yom Kippur draws to an
end, reaffirm our faith in the
oneness, majesty and mercy of
the Almighty and the potential
of each human being to
transform his existence into
sacred, spiritual living.
May we all be written and
sealed in the Book of Life for a
year of peace, blessing and
redemption for our people and
for the entire world!

The liturgical feature of Rosh
Hashanah is the sounding of the
shofar. In the Torah, the first day
of the seventh month is declared a
holiday, a Yom Teruah," "a day of
blowing (or: sounding the horn)."
But what is the symbolism or
meaning of the blowing? And why
on this day? The Torah gives no
The shofar, by tradition, is a
curved musical instrument,
generally made from a ram's horn
although the horn of a goat,
antelope or gazelle is also permit-
ted. The shofar is one of the oldest
musical instruments in human
history which is still in use. Blow-
ing the shofar predates Judaism.
It is believed that pre-Biblical use
focused on the "magical" power
of the horn. In ancient times, peo-
ple believed that blasts from a
horn could drive away demons. It
is striking that this association is
picked up by the Talmud which
suggests that the shofar can drive
away Satan and evil spirits.
Hence, on Rosh Hashanah, the
shofar blasts drive away the
"prosecuting attorney" an
angel who seeks to convict people
when they are on trial for their
lives as all people are judged to
be on New Year's day. But the Bi-
ble gives no hint of any such func-
tion. What did the Bible have in
mind by sounding the shofar? For
that matter, if the shofar's
"power" is to drive away evil
spirits it would long ago have lost
all significance with the decline on
belief in evil spirits.
There are hints of the possible
function of the shofar in the Bible.
In actual usage: a) when the Lord
"came down" on Sinai, the shofar
was sounded in a long blast; b)
when the fiftieth or jubilee year
arrived the year when slaves
were set free and the land was
redistributed to all the inhabitants
the shofar was sounded. The
verse quoted on the Liberty Bell:
"proclaim freedom throughout
the land for all its inhabitants"
was fulfilled by the shofar blast; c)
the shofar was used to rally people
for war; d) the shofar was blown
as a military signal ("Joshua com-
manded the children to blow, and
the walls came tumblin' down.")
Saadya Gaon points out that the
shofar was blown at coronations.
The sounding of the shofar on the
first day of the seventh month
hints at a possible coronation
theme. There are scholars who
have argued that Rosh Hashanah
is somehow linked to Canaanite
annual divine coronation
ceremonies when the powers of
the gods were "renewed" by
human ritual and sympathetic
magic so that the earth's fertility
would be assured. But the Bible
totally rejects any notion of
humans giving power to G-d or
any divine need for "renewal." In
the Jewish context, the shofar
blast represents the Jewish peo-
ple's proclamation that the Lord is
their King or Ruler beyond any
earthly ruler and also that the
Lord rules over all the earth. This
theme is celebrated in the tradi-
tional liturgy for Rosh Hashanah
in the Kingship (Malchuyot) sec-
tion which incorporates ten
Biblical verses citing G-d as ruler
of the world, followed by shofar
The truth is that in the Bible,
Rosh Hashanah itself is not openly
identified. The first day of the
seventh month (now called Tishrei
and the day of Rosh Hashanah) is
called "a holy day" and "a day of
blowing." But the month of
Nissan is called "the head of the
months... the first of the months
of the year .. ." We know that
kings' reigns and other political
dates were figured from the

Semitism, the Shoah and
Israel, giving each a grade of
"On anti-Semitism, he was
excellent," Gralnick asserted.
"No question that the state-
ment that the Nazi cross is an
affront to the Christian cross
is a reaffirmation that Nazism
and anti-Semitism is anti-
"On the Shoah, it was a very
pregnant dissertation. I think
he recognized without a doubt
our criticism of the church's
perceived attempt to univer-
salize the Holocaust and to de-
Judaize the Holocaust. He said
clearly it was an attempt to ex-
terminate Jews because they
were Jews. And that was very
"On the other hand, while it
was important for him to reaf-
firm the announcement that
there will be a Vatican com-
mission to study the church's
role in the Holocaust, I think
he prejudiced it a bit by saying
that two Popes, XI and XII,
had positive records, and I
have no doubt that they may
have. On the other hand, I
would rather have seen that let
out and left the commission
determine after years of study
who did what and who didn't
do what."
The Pope's position on Israel
was a "mixed bag," Gralnick
"What we got clearly was
defacto recognition. The man
speaks of Israel by name. He
speaks of its right to exist, its
territorial integrity."
Gralnick saw as important
the Pope's statement that
every parish in the world
would take up the efforts
started 22 years ago by
Vatican II, which, in the doc-
trine Nostra Aetate, made
clear that Jews no longer were
being held responsible for the
death of Christ.
"That's important in Miami
because it confirms what we
do here," in Jewish-Catholic
dialogue," Gralnick said.
Arthur Teitelbaum,
southern area director of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, agrees that the
Miami meeting was only a mile
marker in the dialogue bet-
ween Jews and Catholics
which has been ongoing in
South Florida.
Although the Pope's com-
ments were not "curative" of
the problems between the two
faiths, Teitelbaum said, they
were "leadership comments
that direct both communities
and his own flock particularly,
toward a more constructive
Teitelbaum also noted the
Pope's message urging the
"correct teaching" of Judaism
in Catholic education.
Not satisfying, to
Teitelbaum, were the Pope's
comments on Israel.

month of Nissan which was the
"political New Year." It remained
for the Oral Law and Rabbinic
literature to articulate the full
theme of the Jewish New Year
with all the classic associations of
humans on trial because every
year, G-d assesses each individual
person for life and death.
Once the trial theme was
elaborated, every Jew needed all
the help he could get to pass the
trial successfully. Here another
association was summned up.
Abraham had bound his son,
Isaac, to the altar, prepared to
make the ultimate sacrifice in
faithfulness to G-d. A ram was
substituted at the end; G-d wanted
no human sacrifice. But the will-
ingness to sacrifice, both on
Abraham and Isaac's part, in
itself, was merit that every Jew
wished to draw upon. The binding
was a classic symbol of Jewish
faithfulness. Tradition insisted
that the shofar be made of ram's
horn to summon up the associa-
tion with the Akedah, the Binding
of Isaac. In this interpretation,
the shofar sound is a cry for mercy
and forgiveness, and possibly one
which recollects the cries and
tears of Isaac's (and all Jewish)
martyrdom. This theme was built
into the second section of the
traditional liturgy Zichronot
memories) whose ten Biblical
verses summon up G-d's
remembering for mercy and
The two primary sounds of the
shofar capture both themes. The
first called Tekiah, is a straight,
long blast a grand sound which
was used for proclamation and
coronation. The second sound is
called Teruah, three broken or
wavering sounds. Here two tradi-
tions of the sound developed in
different Jewish communities.
One version held that it wa a
moaning sound expressed in
three broken sounds (shevarim
broken). The other version held
that it was an outcry type sound,,
i.e., three times three or nine stac-
cato, almost bleating sounds).
Clearly this sound in either ver-
sion was a cry for mercy invoking
Isaac's sacrifice or an alarm at the
coming trial or both. The tradi-
tion was to blow one straight
blast, one broken and one
straight, in sets of three together.
After the descruction, Jews came
together from communities with
differing versions of the teruah.
To avoid splintering and dissen-
sion, Rabbi Abbahu of Caesarea
ruled that a set of each sound ver-
sion be blown and, for good
measure, one incorporating both
broken sounds together. This
became the practice down to
Judaism is a religion with a
powerful forward thrust. The cen-
tral Jewish dream is of a final
redemption in which the whole
world will be perfected and all
humanity set free from war, op-
pression, poverty and sickness.
Therefore, the Rabbis were not
satisfied just to evoke memory
i.e., to look back for the sake of
mercy and just to proclaim G-d as
Ruler in the present. They added a
third dimension to the liturgy
called SKofrot (literarlly shofars
or shofar sounds) which sum-
mons up the verses of future
redemption. "On that day, a great
shofar will be sounded and all
those lost in the land of Assyria or
scattered in the land of Egypt will
come and bow to the Lord in the
holy mountain, Jerusalem." Thus
the "oldest" sounds were to carry
the message of the "newest" faith
of the three thousand year old
dream of the Kingdom of Gd that
is yet to be born.
In sum, the rabbis insisted that
the shofar sounds incorporated
the extraordinary contradictories
which are yoked together in
Judaism the gentleness of cries
for mercy, the strength of pro-

High Holiday Messages
From: President Ronald
To: Our Jewish Friends
On the occasion of the
Jewish New Year 5748, we
look with great anticipation to
the wonderful ac-
complishments being achieved
by the brave people of Israel
and world Jewry. Although
the past year has been
somewhat trying and uncer-
tain with a plethora of charges
and countercharges, scandals
and diplomatic debacles, the
American people will, always,
consider Israel as America's
friend and true ally in the Mid-
dle East. It has always been
the role of our government to
work closely with Israel's in
both of our quests to make this
a world of freedom and peace
loving nations.
We can all look to the future
to the furthering and
strengthening of the Jewish
people who, from the very
beginning, helped to unlock
the shackles of injustice, undo
the fetters of bondage and let
the oppressed go free.
We want to wish you all a
happy, healthy and prosperous
Rosh Hashanah and Happy
New Year, and pray for a
universe free of hatred, op-
pression and despair.
These are all plus factors in
our day-to-day dealings that
will help to advance our com-
munity and world peace.
Happy New Year.
From: Moshe Arad
Ambassador of Israel to the
United States
Rosh Hashanah has, for time
immemorial, meant for Jewish
people a new spiritual and
moral beginning. This Rosh
Hashanah, moreover, in-
augurates a year of worldwide
celebration of Israel's 40th an-
niversary. It will thus serve as
an occasion to contemplate the
historic significance of Israel's
creative survival against dif-
ficult odds, and the meaning
and value of the Jewish State
to the Jewish people.
Despite the geographical
distance between us, we are
united by our Jewish tradition
and spirit, which are embodied
in the moral significance of the
High Hobdays. We are all
Jews together the Jewish
From: U.S. Senator Bob
This morning I awoke to
read the good news that Josef
Begun is free to leave the
Soviet Union after waiting 16
years. Half-way around the
world, we share Mr. Begun's
joy as he exclaims: "I am the
happiest man alive."
On this note of hope, I send
special greetings to Florida's
Jewish Community as prepara-
tions are made to celebrate the
New Year. The High Holy
Days offer a time to rejoice in
our freedom and to recommit
ourselves to fight tyranny
wherever it oppresses the
human spirit.
Hopefully freedom for Mr.
Begun is a sign of good things
in the New Year. During these
holidays, may our strength be
renewed for a productive and
joyous year.
With warm regards from the
Graham family to your family.
From: Congressman Daniel
Florida 14th District
This is indeed a special time
for the Jewish community as
they celebrate the High
Holidays. Here in North
Broward County, we look with
great expectation to the
growth of the community
social service and other
welfare programs. Just recent-
ly, the second approval for
HUD 202 subsidized housing
for the elderly was approved at
the regional level in Atlanta,
and is now in Washington,
D.C., for final selection. The
program looks great and is on
solid ground.
We can all feel good about
Congress' unanimous support
of roughly the same amount of
foreign aid and economic
assistance to Israel. Needless
to say, the Soviet Glasnost
policy shows some change of
direction and change in at-
titude, and we have reason to
be positive and optimistic.
State and the Jewish people
bound by a unity of purpose
and vision and hope. And we
intend to remain united.
That unity can only be
bolstered by a great expansion
in the number of American
Jews who come to visit Israel
and experience the vibrancy of
our life. This can only further
cement the bonds of
understanding and mutuality
that unite us.
This ardent desire of ours
for ever more visits by
American Jews is most ap-
propriately symbolized in this
season by the joyous declara-
tion that concludes the tradi-
tional liturgy of Yom Kippur:
