tion, "For the past 20 years, our
Federation has provided an in-
valuable role in the history of a
community that has grown from
300 families to more than 150,000
residents. With that changing
came a great need for religious
and spiritual guidance, so aptly
performed through the ongoing
work accomplished by the con-
gregations and synagogues. With
that in mind, and the need to in-
corporate the wants and desires of
all aspects of the community, the
board of directors have for the
first time named a group of stan-
ding pulpit rabbis to the Jewish
community's major central
organization board.'

The names have been changed
but the pain and anguish are still
there. A second marriage ... a
choice between the new wife an a
child .. before Jewish Family
Service of Broward County could
intervene, the choice was made.
The child was cast aside.
Few can comprehend the suffer-
ing this 12-year old boy went
through before writing this letter.
Or similarly, the frustration and
fear of an elderly woman whose
vision is suddenly lost during an
Jewish Family Service's staff of
caring professionals has seen
countless situations like these.
They have seen clients carry
burdens larger than anyone would
ever think was humanly possible.
But when the family, single
parent, widower, Alzheimer's
care giver, Russian immigrant or
senior citizen called for help,
Jewish Family Service was there
for them. The agency meets a
myriad of needs daily throughout
Broward County.
"The stress of today's fast-
paced lifestyle can be difficult for
all of us to deal with at one time or
another," explains Sherwin
Rosenstein, executive director,
Jewish Family Service. "But
when our ability to cope with a
problem is challenged, we need to
reach out for help."
The agency offers counseling
services for concerns ranging
from parenting problems and anx-
iety to divorce and substance
abuse. "We see primarily a Jewish
population but our counselors are
available to anyone in the com-
munity who has a need," says
Fees for all services are based
on a sliding scale according to the
client's ability to pay. No one is
denied services because of an in-
ability to pay. Health insurance is
accepted as well.
In an effort to prevent problems
before they escalate, Jewish
Family Service offers Family Life
Education programs to any
organization (youth or adult)
synagogue, schools, Chavurot or
business and civic groups.
"Our goal is to increase
awareness of the value of detec-
ting and treating problems before
they become critical," points out
Susan Kossak, coordinator of
Family Life Education.
"In our workshops, the
speakers and programs are
designed to enhance family and
personal relationships, as well as
to teach families to cope with con-
temporary issues and rapidly
changing lifestyles," she says.
Popular workshops include: Be-
ing Single and Jewish in the 80's,
Raising a Jewish Child Today,
Assertiveness Training, Inter-
marriage and Its Effect on the
Family, Making It Through Your
Parents' Divorce and The Emo-
tional Aspects of Grief and Loss.
Kossak points out that special
workshops may be designed for
groups interested in a particular
topic not already offered. For ex-
ample, Dr. Cliff Golden, Jewish
Family Service psychotherapist
spoke on Nov. 12 at the
Hollywood Public Library on
"Grief and Bereavement."
During the past fiscal year, ap-
proximately half of the agency's
clients were senior citizens. Their
needs ranged from simple ques-
tions about Medicare claims to the
complex problems of dealing with
an invalid spouse or parent.
Help comes in a variety of
forms, according to Eleanor Bern-
stein, director of Senior Services.
"An adult child who is concerned
about her parents may contact us
to do a complete evaluation, or
'Chai' as we call it," says
"It's our job to determine how
well this individual is coping with
daily life. Do they need home

Tikkun Interview Shows Gap Remains
Between Jews and Jesse Jackson
Northern California
Jewish Bulletin
In an inverview in the November
issue of Oakland-based Tikkun
magazine, the Rev. Jesse Jackson
has criticized Israel for doing
business with South Africa,
declined to take issue with Pope
John Paul II for meeting with
Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim and blamed many-
Jewish groups for taking a leading
role in opposing affirmative action
to aid minorities.
National Jewish leaders who
were given copies of the article in
advance say that Jackson, the
leading Democratic presidential
contender, has failed to heal the
rift with American Jews that
followed in the wake of his last
presidential bid.
In fact, says Rabbi Marc Tanen-
baum, director of international
relations for the American Jewish
Committee, Jackson's positions
"raise questions of credibility and
truthfulness," and represent "a
regressive step in what many had
seen as a genuine effort to build
bridges between himself and the
Jewish community.
While less inflamatory than
Jackson's offhand reference to
New York City in 1984 as
"Hymietown," or his belated
disassociation from Black Muslim
leader Louis Farrakhan, who call-
ed Judaism a "gutter religion,"
Jackson's views in the interview
are seen as undermining his sup-
port by more liberal Jews who
otherwise might be attracted to
his progressive social agenda.
"I think there are many
American Jews who would like to
have a strong, positive relation-
ship with the Jackson forces and
the Rainbow Coalition," said Tik-
kun editor Michael Lerner, who
conducted what the liberal Jewish
magazine called "A Dialogue with
Jesse Jackson."
But Lerner labeled some of the
front-running Democratic
presidential candidate's com-
ments as shocking, and observed,
"If he can't satisfy liberal Jews in
this country, he'll have a very dif-
ficult time satisfying other Jews"
whose support he seeks. Jackson
did not return calls placed to elicit
his comment.
In the interview, Jackson:
Took Israel to task for pro-
at a news conference, admitted
that it was unfair to single Israel
out among those doing trade with
South Africa.
The vast majority of trade with
South Africa takes place between
the United States, Great Britain
and Saudi Arabia, which, Tanen-
baum said, "fuels South Africa's
industrial economy by providing
75 percent of its oil supply."
Tanenbaum went so far to say
that, in that connection, Jackson
was operating on a "double stan-
dard," and conjectured "whether
these attacks on Israel might not
be "a way of paying off his support
from Arab sponsors."
In addition to his well-
documented ties to Third World
countries, Jackson recently was
reported to have received
$200,000 from the Arab League
for his Operation PUSH (People
United to Save Humanity).
In light of these revelations
Tanenbaum said, Jackson himself
has cast into doubt whether his
words are those of "credibility
and truthfulness, or anti-Israel
viding military and economic aid
to South Africa, comparing that
country's Botha regime to Hitler's
Third Reich. But Jackson failed to
acknowledge the trade stoppages
the Israeli government recently
pledged in regard to South Africa.
Refrained from criticizing the
pope for his meeting with
Waldheim because "that was the
decision that the sovereign head
of the Catholic church had to
make because Waldheim was
Catholic, and (because) of the
pope's obligation to give private
Declined to directly repudiate
Farrakhan, calling "an overreac-
tion" the controversy surroun-
ding that black leader's reference
to Judaism as a "gutter religion"
and his continued anti-Semitic
Said he has "not found any
anti-Semitism among black
students that needed to be stood
up against" on American college

Convention, but declared, "I'm
not going to wallow in that" dur-
ing 1988.
Called it unfortunate that
some Jewish groups took a
leading role in opposing affir-
mative action policies aimed at
aiding minorities, specifically
citing the controversial Bakke
case that came before the
Supreme Court.
Supported "Israel's right to
exist within secure boundaries,"
and a "homeland or state" for the
Palestinian people; normalized
U.S. trade relations with Arab na-
tions; and an expansion of the
Camp David peace process to in-
clude other Arab nations, in-
cluding a representative of the
Jackson's comments had a rip-
ple effect on official Jewish
leadership before the magazine
had even gone out in the mail. At
its quarterly meeting in St. Louis
last week, the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC) handed out ad-
vance copies of the interview at a
session to plan strategies for the
months ahead.
Kenneth Bandler, NJCRAC
director of public information,
reported that members of his
organizations were disappointed
by Jackson's rhetoric. "Jackson
will be coming to major cities and
requesting meetings with local
Jewish communities," he said,
and "we want to give him a better
understanding of Jewish
Tanenbaum of AJCommittee
suggested that while the door
should be left open to further talks
with Jackson, "we don't need
more meetings to hear him repeat
(his) distortions."
The rabbi said he was most
disappointed at what he saw a
reversal of Jackson's position
regarding Israel and South
Africa. In March, he and Jackson
appeared together at a debate at
Queens College, where Jackson,
Not all responses to the Tikkun
interview lay the blame on
Jackson alone, however.
Rabbi David Saperstein, direc-
tor of the Religious Action Center
of the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations in Washington
called the interview "narrowly
focused," and said it failed to give
credit to the changes in Jackson's
positions since the last presiden-
tial election.
Writing in one of six essays that
accompany the interview, Sapers-
tein explained that the
Democratic presidential hopeful
should be given credit for making
a concerted effort over the past
two years to reach out, and to sen-
sitize himself to Jewish issues.
As examples, Saperstein cited
Jackson's open support of the
Camp David accords, his confron-
tation with Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev last year at Reykjavik
on behalf of Soviet Jewry, his
previous refusal to single out
Israel in criticizing relations with
South Africa and his efforts on a
national level to improve black-
Jewish relations.

"... set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
(Exodus 33:3)

The Glozman's
Neve Yaacov is located at least
20 minutes drive northeast of the
heart of Jerusalem. Here, in a
warm and friendly apartment,
Joseph and Jenny Glozman await
the arrival of their children from
Soviet Russia. They have been an-
ticipating this event since they,
themselves, emigrated 11 years
earlier. Their walls are covered
with family portraits, picture
albums are proudly displayed. For
ten years Joseph, now retired, had
worked on a condensation of the
Jewish Encyclopedia in Russian.
Joseph Glozman was on the
street to greet David and Ethel
Sommer and me, when we arrived
to pay a visit. He escorted us into
the apartment where Jenny hugh-
ed and kissed us like old and dear
friends which indeed we were
before the next hour ended. The
coffee table was filled with plates
of cheese, bread, candy and fruit.
Tea and other drinks were
generously offered. In the midst
of the lively conversation Jenny
continued to encourage everyone
to "Es, es .. (eat).. It's good."
We spoke of the long struggle to
leave the USSR that has faced
their daughter, Gitele, her hus-
band Eliesar, and their five
children. "Ekatherina is the name
on her Russian, passport," said
Jenny, "but my daughter ... she
is Gitele, after my aunt."
We also spoke about the Bar
Mitzvah 'twinning' of their grand-
son, Menechem, with Scott
Frieser of Plantation, Florida.
Joseph told us that Menachem
(Mark) was twinned with at least
100 other boys from such diverse
places as the United States,
Canada, England, and South
Africa. Jenny, a prodigious letter
writer, continues to communicate
with many of the boys' families.
These families, including the
Friesers, have exerted enough
pressure to have exit visas isued
to the YuzefovicheB. Jenny men-
tioned that Menechem had his
own Bar Mitzvah in Moscow. This
is a very unusual occurrence... it
is a prohibited activity. "It was in
a small private hall in Moscow.
They made a party in their house.
They speak only Hebrew at home.
When the children were born
Eliesar began to teach and give
Hebrew lessons at home. The
childrem sometimes speak Rus-
sian with their mother, but the
father will only speak with them
in Hebrew."
The Glozman's oldest son was
the first to hear the ban on Eliesar
and Gitele had been 'lifted.'
Eliesar apparently no longer
knew 'state secrets' and should
reapply for exit visas. Jenny and
Joseph began to receive phone
calls saying, 'Mazel Tov, Mazel
Tov.' Jenny relates, "We did not
know what it meant. We tried to
call Moscow after Simhat Torah.
We tried again many times. The
calls did not go through. We got
calls, from England from
everywhere Mazel tov, mazel
tov. Is it true? Is it real??? Yes, it
is absolutely true. On the eve of
Simhat Torah they received per-
mission. We did finally speak to
them. They do not want to take
anything. They want to go as soon
as possible. It may be they will be
here in two or three weeks. First,
they must fly to Vienna or to
Jenny continued "Last year I
was in such a state, I couldn't go
anywhere. I only thought of my
children. I only cried. There are
many Russians here in this area.
This is where my Gitele and her
family will come. (You don't like
the food? Have a fruit.) We are
happy here, but we couldn't be
happy without them. Now ..."
Her voice changed in anticipation.
"Eliesar wrote an article, called
'Shalom Yonnie,' when their baby
was born in July. The baby's name
is Jonathan."
We looked at the Glozman's
photo albums. They contained
carefully mounted pictures of
family and friends, including
many of the Frieser family. Let-
ters and cards from all over the
globe offered help and encourage-
ment to these two brave people.
We even saw recent family pic-
tures brought to Jenny and
Joseph from visitors to Russia.
They expressed deep appreciation
to Cookie and George Berman,
who were able to convey personal
messages from the family when
they traveled to Israel from the
USSR several months ago.
This article should end with the
report that the Yuzefovich family
is safely in Israel. Unfortunately,
I received a letter from Jenny
dated October 28, four days after
our visit. She said, "... We were
told that the children would come
the 7 of November. Now they
can't receive the document per-
mitting them to leave their four
room flat. Without this document
they can't receive visas. It is im-
possible everything is so
We will rise above this most re-
cent obstacle. Jews must be
released from the prison of Soviet
authority without suffering
humiliation and degradation. We
reaffirm our pledge to Jenny and
Joseph that everything possible
will be done to see that their fami-
ly, and others, will be reunited in

Sharing A Special Time With Their Israeli Brethren...
North Broward County Leaders on UJA President's Mission
Mission chairperson Barbara
Wiener at the site of a 1948 bat-
tle at Latrun.
To kick off the Jewish Federa-
tion's 1988 UJA campaign, 43
people the largest contingent of
participating Federations, visited
Israel for 10 days of whirlwind
and dramatic touring.
Upon arrival at Mt. Scopus, Daniel Cantor recites Shehecheyanu.
Brian Sherr, Shelly Polish, and Esther Lerner look on.
The theme of this year's Presi-
dent's Mission was "Israel from
1948 to now, a 40th anniversary
Barbara Wiener, this year's
President's Mission chairperson,
talked about the many ex-
periences of this year's trip that
touched her and the rest of the
group in so many ways.
There was the trip to Chofim, a
youth aliyah village of Ethiopian
Lisa and Joel Shulman plan-
ting trees in the forest of the
orphans located in northern
Israel. The group had the oppor-
tunity to see how Federation/UJA
funds were being put to use for
the orphans' vocational training
and classroom instruction.

Wiener was amazed at how
these kids are growing up in Israel
without their parents. She said,
"Besides learning how to live in
modern Israeli society, these kids
are battling a psychological disad-
vantage of not having known their
parents and wondering whether
or not they could still be alive."
Then there was a special Shab-
bat dinner with Soviet refuseniks
who had recently arrived in Israel.
It was an emotional experience to
see them and and to listen to their
tales and struggles for freedom.
Wiener was especially over-
joyed to see former refuseniks
Leinid and Marsha Kelbert, who
arrived in Israel in August: "I had
visited them in the Soviet Union
once in 1984 and then in 1986, and
this was quite a mind-boggling ex-
perience, because when I left
Russia in 1986, I never expected
to see them again..
At the conclusion of their Shab-
bat in Israel, the Fort Lauderdale
group, joined by Cantor Brown of
the IDF, led the entire group of
Federation missions in a Hav-
dalah service. David Sommer of

Woodmont played an integral part
in the service as well.
The Federation mission also
traveled to Ft. Lauderdale's
"twin city" Kfar Saba. Through
Federation's "Project Renewal,"
money goes to Kfar Saba
residents to help improve their liv-
ing conditions. Programs that
have aided the city tremendously
include a psychological abuse
cener, and an old age day care
center that gives the elderly the
opportunity to exercise and par-
ticipate in arts and crafts.
Federation's assistant executive
director Alan Margolies, who was
a participant on ths year's mis-
sion, related, "When we arrived
at the community center of Kfar
Saba, we were welcomed by a
childrens' orchestra, playing in-
struments that were donated by
the Jewish Federation."
Also during the visit to Kfar
Saba, there were intimate
ceremonies held to dedicate pla-
ques for mission participants
Daniel Cantor, Deborah Hahn,
and Bart Weisman.
Perhaps one of the most intense
moments of the trip was going to
Yad Vashem a recently opened
memorial to the 1.5 million
children that perished in the
holocaust. Wiener described the
experience of the visit: "The
building is dark and you see lights
inside flashing like little stars
which are calling out the
children's names and ages it's
simplistic and yet allows one to
remember the victims of the
Following this heart-wrenching
experience at Yad Vashem, the
mission went to a military
cemetery, where Gil Merrill from
the Woodlands in Ft. Lauderdale
led a moving memorial service for
the 250 Participants from the
Federations on this trip.
On the final evening of the mis-
sion, the second group from Ft.
Lauderdale joined the first mis-
sion group for a 20th anniversary
board of directors meeting held in
Ludwik Brodski, a past presi-
dent of the Ft. Lauderdale Jewish
Federation, spoke about this
Federation's history and progress
over the past 20 years. The, 1988
campaign chairman Harold Oshry
reported that the fundraismg
results of the mission were ex-
cellent and that $1 million of this
year's $7.6 million goal has now
been raised.
Other highlights of the mission
trip included cocktails at the
President's home, a meeting with
foreign minister Peres and
defense minister Rabin, a briefing
with general "Ya-Ya," comman-
ding officer of the Israeli army in
the North, and a historic train ride
from Bet Shemah to Jerusalem.
Barbara Wiener related, "When

of just touring, but meeting the.

Joint Distribution Committee Dollars in Action
In 1987, tens of thousands of
Jewish men, women and
children received the
assistance from one of the ma-
jor Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauder-
dale/United Jewish Appeal
agencies, the American Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC),
according to '88 general chair
Harold L. Oshry.
Oshry indicated that,
"Because of the heartfelt
generosity and commitment of
the more than 30,000 North
Broward County contributors,
there was a beacon of light a
hope and caring that know no
bounds. In any corner of the
world, wherever a single
Jewish soul cries out, JDC was
there reaching out to those in
distress and improving the
quality of Jewish life."
Of particular interest,
Oshry, who recently returned
from a Federation/UJA Mis-
sion to Israel, where he saw
firsthand how UJA funds aid
in the social service and
humanitarian programs in the
Mideast, reiterated how JDC
funds work hand-in-hand with
other agencies to bring about
these programs.
One such service was the

cy for Internationa] Develop-
ment (U.S. AID) grant to JDC

"These men and women
represent the vanguard of
the Federation/UJA family,
totally involved in every
aspect of our brethren's
welfare, and dedicated to
procuring the very best in
social welfare and
humanitarian services.
Without them, we could not
provide the funds necessary
to continue our young
children's Jewish education,
instill hope and pride in our
Israeli brothers and sisters
and keep the doors of
freedom open for tens of
thousands around the

Ben Marcus, who is chairman of

chool, talked bout the history of

iilding became a major focus of
liis community.
| The previous complex was made
of a couple of small buildings
Jhich have been bursting at the
Bams to support over 200
bildren. Marcus said, "When I
pw the condition of the old
iildings, I realized the school

Plans were drawn up for a new
Jilding for the school, and with a
^nation from the estate of David
losnack, along with major con-
jibutions from Marcus and
hers, construction eventually

I Fran Merenstein declared, "If it
reren't for the financial and
horal committment of the Jewish
[ederation/UJA together with
pat same involvement of certain
fdividuals such as Mr. Marcus
nd the Posnack Foundation, we
puld not have made the dream of
Ms building a reality."
[Marcus related that Sol
chulman, a retired builder, and
erald William, an electrical con-
ctor "are doing a tremendous
[b in ensuring that the building is
Tiing up properly." The complex
almost complete, but more
loney is needed to furnish the in-
side and to purchase resources for
the children's use.
Other members of the advisory
board who have been very involv-
ed in this project are Joel Reins-
tein, Gladys Daren, Leo Good-
man, Harold Oshry, Sol
Schulman, and Morris Small.
Mr. Marcus emphasized that the
public needs to be aware of what
this institution will mean to the
Jewish community and that more
money is still needed to finance a
project of this magnitude.
"I don't have to mention how
important Jewish education is to-
day, it's the fundamental part of
our existence." Marcus declared.
Ben Marcus has been very ac-
tive in fund-raising activities over
the years. He is a Jewish Federa-
tion board member, a JCC board
member, and in New York is an
honorary president of the
Hillcrest Jewish Center. He is also

nursing home or just ongoing
monitoring? We'll contact the
client's door and take all of this in-
to consideration before making
any recommendations."
CHAI operates in partnership
with the Elder Support Network,
a consortium of over 100 Jewish
Family Service agencies across
the country. The Network has an
800-number which links children
with their elderly, distant
families. "A concerned child may
call the Elder Support Network,
which was established in 1986,
who in turn will call us if the
relative lives in Broward County.
Then we'll follow up with a CHAI
visit," explains Bernstein.
Also in 1986, Jewish Family
Service introduced Respite Care.
"It was a service which was
desperately needed in Broward
County. We determined there was
a critical need and presented it to
our Board of Directors. They
agreed and raised the necessary
funds to get the program
started," Rosenstein says.
Respite Care can provide relief
to the spouse or relative who is
caring for a physically and/or
mentally ill loved one. It can be in
the form of a homemaker, a home
health aide, a companion or a com-
bination of the three for a few as
two hours or as many as 24.
"It is emotionally and physically
draining to give 'round the clock
care. Respite Care gives the
caregiver the necessary relief he
or she needs to continue. In many
cases, Respite Care can help
families keep an elderly relative
out of a sometimes unnecessary
and costly institution," Bernstein
The caregiver of a debilitated
spouse, the recently widowed, the
children of divorce, how does
Jewish Family Service determine
where its limited budget goes?
What are its first priorities?
"It's not easy," says Rosens-
tein, who has been executive
director for 11 years. "And, com-
munity needs are constantly
changing. We have to continually
re-assess what we're doing, how
effective we are and what we
should be doing."
That kind of thinking has led to
the addition of satellite offices at
Federation Manor in Hollywood
and in Coral Springs. It has also
called on the ingenuity and
resourcefulness of Jewish Family
Service's Board of Directors.
"We have faced some key deci-
sions in the past few years which
have shaped the agency into its
current vital form," explained Dr.
David Sachs, President of the
Board of Directors.
"We're fortunate to have a
group of involved, caring board
members who see their involve-
ment in Jewish Family Service as
a mitzvah."
The Public Relations Commit-
tee, part of the agency's board,
recently kicked off its annual
membership drive. Committee Co-
chairs Merle Orlove and Dee Hahn
are hoping to increase the
numbers of members as well as
the size of individual
