Cabinet Leaders Announce $2 Million Goal for Urgent Needs...
Condominium Division Launches UJA '88 Drive
Samuel K. Miller, Federa-
tion's Condominium Divi-
sion Cabinet chairman is
highly optimistic about the
upcoming '88 UJA cam-
paign for the Condominium
community, with good
reason. All the key workers
are in place, the chairmen
and co-chairmen have ac-
cepted their responsibilities
with great anticipation and
two experienced individuals
have accepted the co-
chairmanship of the
"With Wiliam Katzberg
and David Krantz serving as
Cabinet co-chairs, it will
enable me to have more
time to devote to speaking
to various groups about the
increasing needs of Israel
and our local agencies,"
Miller stated.
A year long agenda was
recently mapped out at the
first Condominium Cabinet
meeting. Addressing the
group was Harold L. Oshry,
1988 general campaign
chair, who impressed upon
the group the need to in-
crease the campaign by 20
percent to meet the approv-
ed goal of $7.6 million.
Impressed by Oshry's
remarks, the Cabinet voted
unanimously to approve a
goal of $2 million for the
Division, 33 percent over
last year, and to also ask for
a minimum increase of 15
percent from each con-
dominium dweller.
Also discussed was conti-
nuing the successful $54
area-wide breakfasts from
last year as well as the $500
Plus Club Special Givers
Luncheon, which is schedul-
ed for February;
"Coming up will be the
Chairman s breakfast to
kick off the '88 campaign
plus the Worker's Awards
coffee to thank last year's
volunteers for a iob well
done," Miller added.
Miller also stated that he
and members of the Cabinet
will be meeting with
representatives from the
local temples about having a
Federation/UJA Shabbat to
talk to temple congregants
about the services and pro-
grams offered by Federa-
tion and its beneficiary
Rounding out the meeting
was the announcement of
the names of the chairmen
who will head up each North
Broward condominium.
Dedicating themselves to
this noble task are:
Aragon Lillian Mines
At the helm of the 1988 Federation/UJA campaign are from lejt,
Condominium Division Cabinet co-chairmen William Katzberg
and David Krantz, chairman Samuel K. Miller and general cam-
paign chair Harold L. Oshry.

warning against continuing

that in the majority of

"It's much easier to change
facts than attitudes." If
that's so, the easy part has
been largely accomplished.
Now it's time to start the real
work. Susan Weidman
Schneider cites the facts:
Women may be ordained as
rabbis; top UJA and Federa-
tion posts theoretically are
open to women; educational
opportunities for women are
But this dynamic speaker
and author believes these
strides are only a few small
steps for women. Humankind
still must take the giant leap
of changing attitudes.
Schneider, who is the keynote
speaker for the planned
Jewish Women's Conference
Day, Sunday, Nov. 15, fires
the questions:
Are women rabbis getting
jobs? How difficult is it for
gifted women leaders to at-
tain powerful positions within
the Federation? Are women
willing to do what's necessary
to juggle family and career? If
so, is the Jewish community a
help or a hindrance? Will it
provide the support system
necessary for working
According to the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics,
fewer than 25 percent of
American families with
children younger than six will
be able to afford a full time
parent at home by 1990. Cor-
recting for the fact that the
average Jewish family is
more affluent than the rest of
the population, Schneider
believes that within a few
years nearly 2/3 of Jewish
families will include a work-
ing mother.
"I think we are entering an
important new stage," says
Schneider. If Jewish institu-
tions do not change to accom-
modate the changing role of
the Jewish mother, she will
look elsewhere to meet her
childrens' social and educa-
tional needs.

"... set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
(Exodus 33:3)
Eugenia Glozman, left, in Jerusalem, March 8,1987, wearing a
picture of daughter, Ekatherina, on hunger strike ofRefuseniks's
She says,
".. ..Thank you for your con-
cern, for your wish to help our
family in our struggle and suffer-
ing for freedom. How can we save
our children? Nobody can help us.
But we hope. They and we receive
a lot of letters and we are thankful
for people's care. Mark ... is the
oldest in family of four children
and he helps his mother (she is
very ill heart) around the house.
My daughter relates- '... Mark
coped surprisingly well with what
they told him at school and what
he heard at home. Then he began
to understand more and began to
criticize things with which he did
not agree. (At a) 'Solidarity Fair'
... the children made different
items and then sold them to their
classmates. The money was sent
to the 'Peace Fund.' Mark was an-
noyed .. that if an item was not
sold, the child had to buy his own
creation. But when the teacher ex-
plained that the money gathered
at the 'Solidarity Fair' was to buy
arms for the Arab countries, Mark
refused outright to participate at
the Fair. "I do not want this
money to buy bombs to be thrown
at Israeli children!" he declared
openly. Mark was accused of be-
ing devoid of patriotism .. and
so on. The teacher wrote to the
KGB that Mark's father is 'badly
bringing up his son.' You cannot
understand their life."
Twentieth century Russia has
much in common with the Egypt
of old. When ancient Pharaohs
persecuted the Israelites, they did
not permit 'foreign' religious
observance and considered our
ancestors second-class citizens.
Neither were our people allowed
the freedom to leave the country
of their oppression. Those
machinations were remarkably
similar to the repressive tactics of
the Soviet Union, today. Follow-
ing much suffering and many
years of terrible hardship, our
forebearers escaped from Egypt.
Is it merely a coincidence that the
letters of 'Egypt,' in Hebrew,
have a numerical value of 380,
while the letters of the 'USSR' are
also 380? Kabbalistic scholars of
numerology have, no doubt,
speculated about the significance
of 'Glasnost.'
Eugenia (Jenny) and Joseph
Glozman, formerly of Russia, are
now living in Jerusalem. Much of
their time is devoted to trying to
extricate their children and
grandchildren from the clutches
of the Soviet Union. Jenny is the
grandmother of Mark (Menachem
in Hebrew) Yuzefovich, who was
'twinned' at the Bar Mitzvah of
Scott Frieser from Plantation,
Florida. Jenny's daughter,
Ekatherina (Gitele) Glozman, and
son-in-law, Leonid (Eliesar)
Yuzefovich have been requesting
exit visas since October 24, 1980.
Their four younger children,
Miriam, liana, Ariel, and baby
Jonathan (born this past July)
have never seen their
Prior to her son's Bar Mitzvah,
almost two years ago, Scott's
mother Carol Frieser, began a
correspondence with 'Savta'
(Grandma) Jenny. Carol has
recently been invited to chair the
Soviet Jewry Committee of the
CRC of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Both of these women also write to
many others on behalf of the
Yuzefovitch family. Excerpts
from some of these letters in-
dicate the depth of feeling of those
left behind and the anxiety of one
In one of the earliest letters to
the Friesers, dated November 11,
1985, Jenny expresses her
gratitude to the Fort Lauderdale
family and tells of the courage of
her grandson.
On February 2, 1986 Jenny
wrote in part...
"... I don't know how to thank
you for everything you've done
and do for our children in Moscow
... Their life there is terrible. He
(Leonid) is near arrest, and then
(God forbid!) you will not pull him
out forever. She and the children
have suffered so much. Who can
help them? God knows ...
... A boy in his class came up to
Mark and asked his family name.
Mark answered, 'Yuzefovich.' The
boy said, 'A dirty Jew, Yid.' Mark
(said 'Russian pig.' Then this
hooligan punched Mark and ran
away. Mark wrote that he did not
tell his parents. He added sadly,
"They say that here is friendship
among people of Soviet Unhon,
but this is not the truth.' So it is."
The letter of April 2, 1986 con-
tained congratulations on Scott's
Bar Mitzvah and the following
".. My great gratitude to Paul
(Frieser) ... the action is so im-
portant. Has Mr. Bronfman in-
deed spoken to Gorbachev? This is
the question. We shall hope ..
But th'nk you all the same. You
must excuse my irony. I am nearly
histeric, I don't know what to do!
In 'Moscow Pravda' appeared an
article, "Where Does The Golden
Chain Lead?", about Leonid to
whom some tourists bromght a
chain, but at the airport 'they'
took it away. Many dirty words
(were written) to Leonid's ad-
dress. He wrote in reply an article
to the same newspaper, but, of
course, it was not published.
'They' are looking for some mat-
ters in order to arrest him, and it
is terrible. And 'they' even don't
need 3ome reason. 'They' do what
they want.
I do not want to upset you, but it
is so ... I appreciate any action
you do for us."
April 14, 1986 .
"... Today I am 63, and God
did not give me the gift to be with
my daughter and grandchildren. I
am so egotistic: I speak only about
them. And I think all the time
about them, how they are there?
In Moscow today plus 20 Cen-
tigrades (68F), in Jersusalem plus
30 Centigrades (86F). My Gitele
suffers from reumatism and cold
wet climate is dangerous for
May 16, 1986...
"... Thank you for describing
the Bar Mitzvah in detail. I am
very proud of Scott, indeed and
wish him luck always and
everywhere.. .. Thank Rabbi and
Cantor and whole community for
adopting my children by your
Temple. I do hope that you can
pull them from Moscow ... What
do you mean that President
Reagan wishes Scott Mazel Tov?
It was a letter from his office,
from his secretary or from him
personally? All the same it is
You wished me a happy birth-
day and I am so old. Until my
daughter, Leonid and children are
here, I don't celebrate any
holidays. It is too sad and empty
... My sorrow ruined us. We
both, Joseph and I, feel badly. We
lose our hope. ... My dear
friends, don't forget us."
In July she wrote to Carol...
"... Whole summer I have no
word from my dearest Gitele. I
don't know where, when, how. I
don't know anything of them. I
don't want to spoil and upset you
(but) I know you understand ..."
And in August. ..
"... Thank you for the letter
and Bar Mitzvah photos Scott
with Mark. It makes me cry cry
loudly Gevalt! and cry with
tears. I am nearly crazy. What
shall I do? God answer, please
when!? I have no letters, no news
of them, from them.
I want my children here, now
but I am afraid, that this joy
(would) be too much for me: my
heart is too weak, also for joy.
But let it be!
I am in a terrible mood ... in
such a despair .
September 19, 1986 ...
"... Gitele received the sixth
refusal, so we don't know what to
do. I want to cry loudly, maybe
Gorbachev will hear and let them
go ... I permit myself to write all
this to you ... I must tell
somebody, what is, as a stone, in
my heart. Of course, we hoped,
but still they are there, and I see
that Menachem celebrates his Bar
Mitzvah, not in Israel...
For five days in March of 1987
Eugenia and Joseph Glozman took
part in a hunger strike in
She wrote ...
". We were sitting with the
portraits of our children since 9
o'clock... It was difficult. We are
not young people, five days lasted
this our struggle. On the 8th (of
March) it was terribly cold and we
were standing several hours. They
must pay attention. What for such
I can't think and speak about
anything else: my children are
always in my brains, my heart,
even in stomach .. ."
Gitele has written directly to
Mr. Gorbachev requesting permis-
sion to emigrate to Israel. Leonid
has been on a prolonged hunger
strike. The Yuzefovich family
name has been added to the "of-
ficial" list of refuseniks. Their
seventh request has been denied!
Just as those Jews who left
Egypt, so many centuries ago,
longed for Israel and in-
dependence ... so do the Jews of
Russia, today. We, who live in
freedom, must be relentless in our
battle to rescue all of our people
who remain in captivity.
News Update!
On Saturday evening October
17 at 6 p.m. I received a phone call
informing us that the Yuzefovich
family has been granted exit
visas. This information was con-
firmed during an ecstatic call with
Jenny in Jerusalem. They are ex-
pected to arrive in Israel in three
to four weeks.
The family of Ekatrina and
Leonid Yuzefovich, and I, would
like to thank everyone in our com-
munity who helped when it was
needed. The telegrams and letters
sent to President Reagan,
Secretary of State Schultz, Prime
Minister Thatcher, and Mr. Gor-
bachev made a difference. We
made a difference. Everything we
did and continue to do for this
family and others is vitally
We especially want to express
our gratitude to our Congressmen
from Florida, E. Clay Shaw and
Larry Smith, for their help,
assistance and unfailing support.
The Yuzefovich family are ready
to face a new life, let us not forget
the hundreds of thousands of Jews
who still need us.

The Jews of Argentina: Not Strangers in the Land
"The Mexicans came from the
Aztecs, the Peruvians came from
the Incas and the Argentineans
came from the boats." This
popular saying among Argenti-
neans summarizes the reality of
the immigrant ancestry of the
vast number of the current
population of 28 million, of which
one percent are Jews.
Of the estimated 250,000 Jews
in Argentina "we have no
statistics," is a phrase often heard
in the country about 280,000
are concentrated in the capital ci-
ty of Buenos Aires, home to about
one-third of Argentina's citizens.
The second largest Jewish com-
munities, Cordoba and Rosario,
each has 10,000 Jews, followed by
Tucuman, with 4,000; Mendoza
with 2,000; and Mar del Plata and
Salta, with 1,000 each. The rest
are scattered, many of them in the
towns near where the Jewish
agricultural colonies established
by Baron de Hirsch in the 1880's
flourished until the mid-1920's.
"The history of the community
is secular and leftist," said Joshua
Flidel, director of ORT in Latin
America, at a meeting with a
delegation of North American
journalists and communal leaders
who recently visited the country.
Jewish immigrants were active
in the Socialist, Anarchist and
liberal movements of the early
part of the 20th century. The
grandparents of WIZO president
Amalia Polack who settled in
Rosario were among the founders
of both the Socialist and the
Radical Party. Moses Levinson
was an important philosopher and
leader in the old Radical Civic

Our Ethiopian Brethren
Next month marks the third anniversary of the dramatic rescue
of our Ethiopian Jewish brethren from Sudanese refugee camps.
That operation, which came to be known as the United Jewish Ap-
peal's Operation Moses, was successful in bringing 8,000 Jews to
According to nationally known New York Times columnist
William Satire, "American and all freedom-loving people praised
the State of Israel for bringing thousands of black people into the
country as citizens and not in chains."
Although there still remains tens of thousands of our Ethiopian
Jewish brothers and sisters in their oppressed country, the first
airlift has now been absorbed into Israeli society. About half of
the country's 16,000 Ethiopian Jews including those who arriv-
ed prior to Operation Moses are now in permanent housing. All
are out of hotels, some still are in absorption centers and in
buildings converted from former absorption centers. Approx-
imately 40 percent are still seen regularly by Jewish Agency
workers, half are working or in training, albeit most earn very
low salaries. And most of Youth Aliyah's 2,500 Ethiopian
students are receiving special programming, intensive care,
remedial attention, individually designed texts and innovative
forms of vocational training. And so it goes. A belabored,
destitute and hungry people an ancient Jewish community sav-

the contributor are the most important producer.
More than ever in 1988, our Ethiopian brethren need your sup-
port. Through your generous contributions, you can be the turn-
ing point for some of the following funded programs:

$230 ... one month stay in an Israeli absorption center.
$1,750... an Ethiopian Jew in Israel can begin his first
semester of training in aircraft maintenance,
$7,500... a social worker can help several Ethiopian single-
parent families in Israel make the transition to independent living
in their own apartments.

Senderey, executive director of
the Hebraica Community Center.
"Part of that mythology is to
make aliya."
Argentine Jewry's relationship
with Israel is primarily cultural,
philanthropic and sentimental. In
Cordoba, for example, the Jewish
community took great pride in the
fact that the city dedicated an
"Israel Plaza" with a large
menorah in the middle of it in
May. Aliya runs about 1,000 a
year, according to Israeli Am-
bassador Efraim Tari.
Activities in support of Israel
are the main agenda of B'nai
B'rith, with 800 members, 80 per-
cent of them in Buenos Aires, and
WIZO. Founder in Argentina in
1926, WIZO has about 20,000
members, many of them in the
smaller cities "we have some
chapters with three people,"
Polack told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. Though
primarily involved with its 12 pro-
jects in Israel, WIZO also par-
ticipates in philanthropic
endeavors to help poor
Possibly the most quintessen-
tially Argentine Jewish institution
is the Hebraica Community
Center. Located in a 14-story
building in the middle of town a
short walk from the charming
Claridge Hotel where members of
the North American delegation
stayed, the Hebraica is open and
jumping with activities for 3,000
people from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. The
Hebraica, said Senderey, was
founded by free-thinkers. Begun
60 years ago, its by-laws forbad
the introduction of politics (by
which they meant Zionism) and
religion. The politics clause was
repealed; the religion clause was
"The thrust is secular and
pluralistic," said Hebraica presi-
dent Mario Trumper. Every
Jewish holiday is celebrated, and
the center is open for activities on
the Sabbath. Senderey sees the
Hebraica as a kind of cultural
"supermarket" where people who
"want to connect with Judaism
come for a day-to-day experience
which covers the whole span of
The center gears itself to serve
three prime constituencies: the
2-12-year-old groups, teenagers,
and adults. Its feast of cultural ac-
tivities for its 20,000 dues-paying
members (and anyone else who
wishes to attend them at nominal
cost) ranges from films, to
theater, a choir, lectures and
forums, an open university for
adults taught by professors at
Argentine universities, and a
40,000-volume library. The
cultural exhibits in the lobby
travel to municipalities, schools
and other non-Jewish institutions.
Hebraica places most of its ef-
forts on Jews in their teens "when
most of Jewish identity is form-
ed," said Senderey. In addition to
its Amos High School, it runs
groups for teenagers led by
college-age madrichim
(counselors) trained by Hebraica,
one for every 20 youths, and a
supplementary two-afternoon-a-
week school for children in non-
Jewish primary schools. At 17, the
young people spend two months in
Israel's Carmiel, where each pupil
is "adopted" by a local family.
The Hebraica which belongs
to the Maccabi network of 60 com-
munity centers in Argentina
also has a country club of 350
acres about a half-hour drive from
town. Some 500 families own
chalets and condos there, with a
dormitory for the 300 non-
residents who stay over for entire
weekends. Between 3-4,000 peo-
ple, including groups of
teenagers, travel there on Satur-
days and Sundays to take part in a
variety of cultural and sports
"When the community club
trend started in Argentina 12
years ago, we had to react or Jews
would join the non-Jewish clubs,"
said Senderey. The country club
attracts couples with children who
want their offspring to participate
in Jewish activities and to meet
other young Jews.
port of human rights and against
anti-Semitism has a strong educa-
tional impact upon the youth.
They pointed to the fact that
when Msgr. Antonio Plaza, the
former Archbishop of La Plata
charged in March 1987 that "the
government is full of Jews" (who)
"made us squander three years
discussing (human rights) ..."
the Hebraica took out a
newspaper ad calling Plaza "one
of the originators of Argentine
fascism." The next day, said
Trumper, President Alfonsin used
the same arguments in a speech.
A second example was the action
There is no synagogue or other
religious activity to give space to

respects the secular character of
its members and does not want to
confront the problem of what

well as B'nai B'rith took out a

NEW YORK In an unprecedented meeting between the
Foreign Ministers of the People's Republic of China and Israel, it
was concluded that contacts between representatives of both
countries will continue in the future. The meeting between
Shimon Peres, Israel's Foreign Minister, and his Chinese counter-

Sheraton Design Center Hotel in
The program was designed to
acquaint attorneys, accountants,
and trust officers with the Foun-
dation and how they can help their
clients with estate planning.
Sheldon S. Cohen, a former
Commissioner of the IRS, spoke
on current legislation affecting
charities. The event was chaired
by Steven Fayne and Thomas
Katz, who along with Cohen
responded to questions on
charitable giving under the 1986
Tax Act, estate planning techni-
ques, generation skipping tax
planning, and retirement
"The Foundation," says direc-
tor Kenneth Kent, "helps people
spread their money around
through various trust instruments
to support many worthwhile
charitable organizations."
Kent continued that the Foun-
dation utilizes volunteer attorneys
and accountants, who at no cost
work with potential donors on
bow to best manage their gifts.
The Chairman of the Founda-
tion is Jacob Brodzki.
The Foundation is a separate
fund segregated from the annual

dent Jews whose need for help has
never been greater.

Oceanside Gears Up For Campaign
Federation's Oceanside office is
gearing up for their biggest '88
UJA campaign, a projected goal
of $2 million dollars.
This is a 25 percent increase
over last years gifts which totalled
about 1.5 million dollars.
Stan Rosenberg, Oceanside's
new director, hopes to raise as
much money as humanly possible.
Rosenberg declared, "We
believe that the potential within
the borders of our oceanside area
is enormous, and with the right in-
gredients, realizing a $2 million
campaign is a realistic goal."
To help accomplish this feat, a
leadership training seminar was
held at Fort Lauderdale's Em-
bassy Suites Hotel. The session
led by Oceanside chairman Paul
Lehrer included National UJA
leader Skip Schrayer of Chicago.
The four hour session was at-
tended by 15 people who are part
of a group known as the "business
coalition." A followup meeting
will be held on Nov. 11 at the
Oceanside office.
The Oceanside region is a large
one, extending from Port
Everglades on the south to the
Broward County line on the
North, and bounded by 1-95 to the
Campaign leader Lee Rauch,
who has been involved in solicita-
tion for several years, talked

beginning with a series of worker
meeting and solicitor training ses-
sions throughout the community.
On Oct. 21 member of the Palm

Federation/Unied Jewish Appeal
Under Silver's leadership the
women of Palm Aire raised close
to $200,000 in 1987 a 32 per-
cent increase over 1986. If that
pace is maintained in 1988 the
Palm Aire Women's Division
hopes to raise a quarter of a
million dollars of more. In recogni-
tion of her achievements in
organizing and coordinating the
Women's Campaign in Palm Aire,
Silver will be one of the honorees
at the Palm Aire Pacesetters lun-
cheon on Dec. 14 at the Marriott

vestment in building a strong local
Jewish community for themselves
and their children. On Nov. 5
women from both cities will come
together at the home of Women's
Division Campaign Co-Chair Lois

Plantation Campaign Kicks Off With UJA Brunch
Seeking to involve new
members into the 'Federation
family' and to open the Planta-
tion community to new people,
the 1988 Plantation Divi-
sion/United Jewish Appeal
campaign kicked off with a
brunch hosted by Plantation
chairman Jeffrey Streitfeld
and his wife Linda.
Over 30 dedicated and com-
mitted Plantation residents at-
tended the recent planning
brunch to map out strategy for
the coming year.
Kenneth Bierman, a Planta-
tion resident and executive
director of the Jewish Federa-
tion, discussed the past history

Gifts leaders responded to our
vital social welfare
humanitarian needs with
heartfelt gifts at special
leadership Fly-Ins.
Thanks to the profound ef-
forts of our Major Gifts chair-
man Joel Reinstein, two suc-
cessful days of face-to-face
solicitations were held in a
special campaign suite at the
Cypress Creek Westin, and
after the final tally was totall-
ed. 18 gifts were, closed ac-
counting for a record
$500,000, representing more
than a 20 percent card-for^card
increase compared to 1987.
Helping to achieve this
magnificent achievement to
help launch the '88 pre-
opening drive were Dr. Julius
Levy, a UJA national vice
chairman from New Orleans
and Jan Winkler, a leader from
the Hartford, Connecticut
Federation, whose assistance
and expertise were instrumen-
tal in the fund-raising process.
With the celebrating success
of these Fly-Ins and suite
visits, our "Celebration 20/40
is off to a great start, in honor
of our 20th year and Israel's
40th birthday. Through the ef-
forts of our Major Gifts team
'88, we have set the wheels in
motion for what will be the
most historic campaign in two
decades of giving. Following
the goal-setting meetings, the
Fly-Ins, the Presidents and

Hotel in Coconut Grove so
please mark your calendars for
February 14. It will be the
social event in the Plantation

Streitfeld and his Plantation
Committee have set a goal of
$400,000, up 20 percent over
last year's figures. This is in
accordance with the Board ap-
proved '88 goal of $7.6 million,
20 percent over last year's
"With the dedication and
devotion of the volunteers in
Plantation, I know we can
reach our goal," Streitfeld
stated. "All we need to do is
band together as a community
for a common cause helping
our Jewish brethren here in
Fort Lauderdale, in Israel and
all over the world."

ment and generosity have
greatly benefitted our major
beneficiary agencies, like the
Soref Jewish Community

Gold Coast
BBYO News Fall Update
BBYO's Six Million Pennies
Project Entering Eighth
The Gold Coast Council of
the B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization has selected the
new 1987-88 Chairpeople for
its Six Million Pennies Project,
now entering its eighth year.
Lauren Busch of Emet BBG
and Eric Moshe of Tzahal AZA
both in Plantation are now at
the helm and intend to spur
the drive forward.
BBYO's Six Million Pennies
Project was begun in 1979 by
the BBYO's youth leaders as a
way to commemorate the lives
of the Six Million Jews who
perished in the Holocaust.
Those who created the project
found it difficult to com-
prehend the figure "six
million" and thus conceived of
a plan whereby six million pen-
nies would be collecteS to help
them visualize its immensity.
Continuous efforts by both the
youth and the adult B'nai
B'rith and B'nai B'rith Women
groups have brought the total
collected to 1.6 million. But the
members have not been
discouraged. Said one
member, "Sure it's frustrating
but it forces you to think about
just how many individual lives
were actually lost during those
years." And instead of giving
up, they are more determined
than ever to bring the Project
closer to its eventual goal.
When completed, and
resulting $60,000 will be
allocated by the Gold Coast
Council youth to organizations
which work to preserve the
memory of the Holocaust and
contribute to Jewish survival.
If you or your organization
wish to become involved or
would simply like more infor-
mation about the Pennies Pro-
ject, please call the BBYO of-
fice at 581-0218 or 925-4135.

Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Barbara K. Wienar
When you have a question or a
problem which concerns you as a
member of the Jewish community,
where do you go? Who do you call?
One option you may not be aware
of, but should be, is the Communi-
ty Relations Comittee of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Luderdale.
According to Barbara K.
Wiener, chairman of the Com-
munity Relations Committee
(CRC), the CRC is the "voice" of
the organized Jewish community
in North Broward County, with
representation from various local
Jewish organizations. The
membership of the CRC reflects
the variety of resources within the
Jewish community, providing an
exchange of knowledge and
The security of Israel is of para-
mount concern to American Jews
and, therefore, a major focus of
the CRC lies in its efforts to inter-
pret Israel's position and needs to
the American public and govern-
ment. The CRC supports Israel,
not only as a Jewish State, but as
the United States' only politically
stable and militarily effective ally
in the Middle East. The CRC op-
poses the sale of American
weapons to Arab states that re-
main in a state of war with Israel,
and seeks to educate the
American public and government
about the risks of such arm sales,
and about the mutual interests of
Israel and the United States and
the values and democratic pro-
cesses the two countries share.
The CRC sponsors local educa-
tional and community awareness
programming. An ongoing priori-
ty of the CRC is the Cult
Awareness Program, designed to
address the serious problem of
cults and missionary groups. The
CRC has distributed its brochure,
"It's An Offer You'd Better
Refuse" and sponsored educa-
tional programs at schools, youth
groups, synagogues and Jewish
organizations, in order to promote
awareness of the problem and to
teach Jewish youth to recognize
and resist cult recruiters. A Cult
Awareness Weekend was co-
sponsored by the CRC and plans
are being discussed for another
community-wide Cult Awareness
program for the coming year.
Wiener sees anti-Semitism and
Jewish safety and security as
crucial concerns and feels that the
CRC must monitor and condemn
anti-Semitism and all forms of
bigotry and racial violence.
It is a goal of the CRC to
facilitate positive relationships
with the non-Jewish and black
Last year the CRC co-sponsored
the annual Yom Hashoa Program
for Holocaust Remembrance. This
program was very well attended
and this year the CRC plans to,
once again, sponsor Dhe Yom
Hashoa program on April 14,
1988. The CRC is committed to
keeping the memory of the
Holocaust alive and to promoting
Holocaust education. Wiener
claims it is important to instill an
understanding of the Holocaust to
all students.
The CRC is active on behalf of
Soviet Jewry through a number of
programs. Letter-writing cam-
paigns to American and Soviet of-
ficials are organized in support of
Refuseniks and prisoners of cons-
cience. Each year a national
Human Rights Plea, for Soviet
Jewry, is organized on a local level
and the CRC assists in planning
the program, which will take place
on January 28, 1988 at Temple
Beth Israel.
The CRC also sponsors a Twinn-
ing Program through which local
youngsters celebrating a Bar or
Bat Mitzvah are "twinned" with a
Soviet child who is not free to
celebrate their own Bar or Bat
Mitzvah. The Soviet child par-
ticipates in absentia with their
American counterpart, providing
a vivid lesson that Soviet Jews are
denied the basic freedoms we en-
joy here in the United States. So
far the CRC has twinned over 200
local youngsters and 45 twinning
applications have already been
received for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs
to be held in 1987 and 1988.
The Community Relations Com-
mittee of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale gears its
efforts to the needs and concerns
of the Jewish community of North
Broward County. "The CRC
develops a program of education
and social action on behalf of the
Jewish community," says Barbara
Wiener, CRC Chairman. "If you
have questions or problems con-
tact CRC. If you have been con-
fronted with religious discrimina-
tion, if your children have been ap-
proached by cult recruiters, if
your children have problems con-
cerning absence from school on
Jewish holidays contact CRC.
We can help. That's why we are
The CRC welcomes your par-
ticipation. If you are concerned

Jewish community and would like

total enthusiasm for the people of
Israel, the government officials
that he met with and the "tremen-
dous spirit of the young people to
do what is necessary to protect

Irving Spivack, Barbara K. Wiener, Rabbi Kurt Stone and Selma
CRC Steering Committee Meeting
The Steering Committee of the
CRC held its first meeting of the
current year and discussed a host
of new programing ideas for the
upcoming months.
CRC chairperson, Barbara K.
Wiener, chaired the meeting and
presented an update of recent
issues that affect the American
Jewish community. Among those
items were the Judge Robert Bork
nomination to the Supreme Court;
closing of the Washington, D.C.
PLO offices; the prospects for
Summit II and the recent decision
to permit Unite* States ser-
vicemen to wear headcoverings as
part of their uniforms.
A broad agenda of items were
presented and discussed that the
local CRC will confront, such as
black/Jewish relations,
Catholic/Jewish dialogue; Anti-
Semitism; Domestic and
Legislative issues; the need for a
local Speakers Bureau and Soviet
Jewry activity.
The Steering Committee will set
the overall agenda and priorities
for the various sub-committees
that are in the process of being
formed at the present time.

SUNDAY, Nov. 15
"Theatah, Theaytah, Theater"
makes its debut this day at 11 a.m.
in the newly equipped JCC
Theater/Gym, with a presentation
of its first Yiddish/Vaudeville
Brunch program.
Responsible for this "first
timer" in Broward County is none
other than impresario Jack
Fishman, the man of robust talent
who has delighted thousands over
the past several years with his
"Pinuzzio, "Tzinderella" and
"Shnay Vyse ..." marvelous Yid-
dish takeoffs on Pinocchio,
Cinderella and Snow White and
the Seven Dwarfs.
Some of the acts included, ac-
cording to Fishman: A comedian
doing Menasha Skolnick, two sets
of Yiddish duets (combining
wonderful voices, he says), a Bar-
bara Streisand impersonation and
a recitatif about a Bar Mitzvah
boy. And you don't have to be that
knowledgeable with Yiddish to en-
joy this Yiddish/English
It's on a new stage, too. A
specially built piece of equipment,
a large portable stage, is being
presented to the Center by Ben
Scribner in memory of his beloved
wife Sadie. The morning's event
will include a ceremony during
which a plaque will be affixed to
the stage. Scribner has been in-
valuable to Fishman's produc-
tions, having built and worked
hand in hand with sceneographer
(chief stage scene designer and
builder Will Schulman).
The Center is very grateful and
will certainly reap the benefits
from use of the new stage. Now
other Center productions can be
accommodated also.
Come see the ceremony and en-
joy the debut! And, says Laura
Hochman, director of the Center's
Senior Activities, "The Brunch
will be delicious."

day, Nov. 15, 8 p.m. Ramat

Shalom's Habima Reader's
Theater presents its second show-
ing of it's new dramatic produc-
tion at the JCC. "Checking Out"
met with such positive reaction
during its debut in October at the
synagogue, that many who missed
it at that time asked for a repeat
"It's a totally different kind of
community theater," says Warren
Lee, active member of the
synagogue, who developed the
technique used by "Reader's
Theater." "Long range, long time
rehearsals are avoided, and many
more plays can be performed dur-
ing the year," he says.
The cast of eight has been ap-
plauded for their clever, funny
and moving rendition of the Alan
Swift play about a man who wants
to check out!
If you're curious about what this
means, come and see this new
kind of theater. If you have seen
it, it's worth seeing again. The
topic, both timely and controver-
sial, is worth reflecting upon.

Women's Conference Day November 15
Continued from Page 1-
day," examines the effect of
the women's movement on
the lives of Jews, one of
several topics she will address
during the Conference Day.
In arecent interview,
Schneider called Jewish
women the most well-
educated group of women in
the country. "By virtue of
their education, they were
able to take advantage of af-
firmative action oppor-
tunities more readily than the
average population, but they
are hit with a double-
whammy. No other cultural
group has two such strong
traditions in opposition.
Jewish children have
always been told, she said, to
get the best possible educa-
tion, to be the best they can
be and to succeed, intellec-
tually and professionally. In
addition, the traditional role
model for girls has been the
Jewish mother, at the center
of her happy home and
"Black women may be told,
'get a good education, be suc-
cessful, get power, because
there won't be a man around
to support you,' Schneider
said. Jews are told the same
thing about education, with
the added bonus that there
will be a man around, and
part of their role is to make a
Jewish home for him."
Schneider is a one-woman
juggling act all her own,
managing a successful career
that involves lots of traveling,
and raising three children,
aged 17, 14 and 5. She is a
free-lance writer and lecturer
who has appeared on more
than 30 radio and television
broadcasts. In addition to a
lonf list of honors and credits,
she has been Editor of
"Lilith," the nation's only in-
dependent Jewish women's
magazine, since 1976.
The current issue of
"Lilith" deals extensively
with "Jew-baiting" on cam-
pus, another topic Schneider
said she will discuss. "People
need to be aware of how
damaging that is to our self-
esteem and to relationships
between Jewish men and

ference Day begins at 9:30
