Division Dinner, held earlier
this month at the
Woodlands Country Club in
Tamarac. This, as opposed

tireless effort to reach our goal.
Stein said that "we're trying to
go along with the Federation's
goals for this year by increasing
the gifts by 20 percent or better
over last year."

Super Sunday Jan. 24
It may sound like a lot of hype, but Super Sunday really is a
family affair. It is one of the most important events of the 1988
Campaign of our Jewish Federation as it strives to reach this
year's campaign goal of $7.6 million.
Super Sunday is an opportunity for the vast majority of our
community to do their part.
Because as Jews we do have a Jewish Heart. We do care what
happens to our elderly, how our youngsters are educated, how
troubled Jews cope with their problems, and how Jewish com-
munities in dozens of foreign countries survive, sometimes
against incredible odds.
We care that there is a Jewish homeland a place where Jews
from Iran, from Syria, from the Soviet Union, from Rumania,
from Ethiopia, from lands throughout the world where religious
freedom does not exist we care that there is a place where
these Jews can gather and be proud to be Jews.
There are no miracles, no magic. We can only build the struc-
tures, the organizations to provide that help, and then to make
sure that these organizations are properly funded.
That's what the Federation campaign is all about. It is pro-
viding the means to provide our Jewish people with dignity, with
well being, with the ability to survive as Jews.
If you have time to devote on Super Sunday, call the Federation
and join the large family of workers who will be at the Jewish

CAMPAIGN '88 Federation/United Jewish Appeal
Profile on Campaign '88 Community Leader
Commonwealth's Barry Chapnick Pledges Record Gift
In the world of banking there
stands a man who takes great
pride in the tradition of helping
his brethren in need regardless of
race, creed or religion.
That man, East Fort Lauder-
dale's Barry E. Chapnick, chief
executive officer of Com-
monwealth Savings and Loan,
who this month announced a
record breaking gift for the
Jewish Federation 1988 United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
Chapnick, who has the distinc-
tion of pledging the largest gift
for the Jewish community's major
philanthropy, told the FLORI-
DIAN that, "I feel it is important
to be a part of the Federa-
tion/UJA, because we all have an
obligation to our fellow Jews. It's
interesting to note that it's been
2000 years since the Romans
displaced our people from
Jerusalem and we have survived,
which makes our Jewish people
very special. Jews look out for
Jews and that can best be seen by
the birth of the State of Israel. It
is significant that in 1988 we are
celebrating the Jewish
Homeland's 40th Anniversary
year as well as our own Federa-
tion's 20th year of service."
In an exclusive interview from
his Fort Lauderdale headquarter
offices on West Commercial,
Chapnick indicated that our in-
stitution respects the fact that a
significant number of our
customers are Jewish and are hap-
py to give back to the people funds
to be used by UJA locally as part
of the ongoing social welfare and
services programs in North
Broward, in addition to the
humanitarian programs in Israel
and 33 other lands.
The University of Florida Law
School graduate, originally from
the* State of Connecticut, is an
arden supporter of Broward
County civic and educational
organizations. Both he and his
wife, Ellen, are active in the fund-
raising work of Nova University,
Broward Community Colege and
the United Way, and are one of
the prime supporters of the State
of Israel Bonds programs. His

this year, we have a network of
young and experienced real
estate, developers and allied in-
dustry men and women working
diligently to accomplish the vital
work performed by our Jewish
community's major philanthropy.
He said, "In the past, our
members have stood at the
forefront when it came to helping
our brethren. We are always there
ready to provide our assistance,
generosity and commitment, and
this year, we will extend our team
effort to include all 20-area com-

boundaries, having pledged major
gifts to the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation Combined Jewish Ap-
peal Campaign, one of the first
organizations he became involved
with in the 1970's participating on
one of his first Missions to Israel.
Since touring Israel and the
Middle East and meeting with
Prime Ministers Shamir, Peres
and other dignitaries, Chapnick
emphasized, "I am setting my
schedule to take a more active role
in the Federation/UJA campaign.
For it is through our example that
we set examples for others and
hopefully, it will be the turning
point in accomplishing the vital
work performed by the UJA."
The financial industry en-
trepreneur remembers his grand-
father who came from Poland and
who told of the Holocaust and the
concentration camps. "Now," he
said, "We should not dwell on the
negative, but encourage our com-
munity people to go to Israel and
see what a happy place it is.
American Jews, more than any
other Jews in the world, can relate
to Israel, because there is a
camaraderie that creates a spirit
all Jews should be proud of."
Chapnick stressed that he was
gladdened by the work already
achieved, particularly by general
campaign chairman Harold L.
Oshry and his '88 campaign team,
executive director Kenneth Bier-
man and the professional staff, in-
dicating that he is happy to come

Commonwealth Savings and
Loan with nine branch offices and

that his employees also make in-
dividual contributions to the drive
making them a valuable part of
the UJA volunteer member team.

Over 200,000 people, including
1,000 South Floridians, marched
on the Capitol on the eve of the
Reagan-Gorbachev summit with a
message let our brethren in the
Soviet Union go!
The demonstration concerning
Soviet Jewry, which took place on
Dec. 6 in Washington, D.C, was
regarded as the largest such
Jewish protest to be held in this
The protesters marched from
the Ellipse to the Capitol Mall,
where they chanted songs of
freedom, waved banners with say-
ings such as "where is Glasnost
for Soviet Jews?", heard the im-
ploring words of speakers that in-
cluded vice president George
Bush and several congressmen
and mayors, and cried when they
were addressed by former
refuseniks Ida Nudel, Natan
Scharansky, and Yuli Edelahtein.
Here in our own Ft. Lauderdale
community, the Jewish Federa-
tion made it possible for over 80
people to go to Washington for
this very important event. Most of
them came away from the rally
imbued with tremendous spirit
and with the hope that their par-
ticipation would make a difference
in convincing the Soviets to in-
crease Jewish emigration.
Paul Lehrer was one of those
from Ft. Lauderdale who went to
Washington. Lehrer, who is the
chairman of the Federation's
Oceanside Division, called the ral-
ly "a wonderful event, truly a hap-
pening. It reminded me of Colum-
bia University in the late 1960b
because of the many protests at

did so at great risk to their lives."
Barbara Wiener, chairperson of

a very emotional event. It was just
incredible to stand together with
people around the world on a
human rights issue. I think tha*

Rabbi Howard Addison of Tem-
ple Beth Israel in Sunrise called
the rally "a once in a lifetime ex-
perience, and I pray that it will on-
ly have to be so in the hope that
our brothers and sisters will be
released in the Soviet Union."
"It wasn't a very mild
demonstration there was a
sense of seriousness and purpose
that pervaded the crowd," con-
tinued Rabbi Addison. "Elie
Wiesel made a powerful state-
ment saying that had a
demonstration such as this taken
place 45 years ago, perhaps a few
million more Jews would have
Mark Levy, a vice president of
the Jewish Federation, who had
never participated in a
demonstration of this magnitude,
declared, "The impact on the peo-

march was very moving to me.

tend to take things for granted.
By participating in this rally, a
very strong statement was made
and I was part of that statement."

30 Days And CountingSuper Sunday Jan. 24
Just as 200,000 Jews came out
for the Soviet Jewry rally in
Washington, D.C. recently, we
hope that Ft. Lauderdale's Jewish
community will answer their
phones and then come out to the
JCC Perlman Campus, on Sun-
day, January 24.
Ray Finkel, Agency Liaison
chairman for "Super Sunday"
said: "I think this is going to be an
exciting day for the whole Greater
Ft. Lauderdale community and
we can use as many volunteers as
possible. Those people who can
get on the phones and take
pledges will be doing a mitzvah for
this community." This year's
phone-a-thon hours will be ex-
panded from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Co-chairpersons of this year's
"Super Sunday" are Jim and Ava
Phillips. Ava Phillips related "one
of the main things that is needed
in this community is more public
awareness of vhat the Federation
does. We're also trying to get
more young people involved in
Federation/UJA activities and
that's another reason why we're
having Super Sunday for the first
Super Sunday chairs Jim and
time ever on the Sorei Jewish
Community Center campus."
The "Super Sunday" committee
is planning a host of activities on
the JCC Campus in Plantation
that will take place at different
times throughout the day. Some
of these activities will be eauu
tional and others will be enter-tad
ing. In addition, many agenc
will be setting up booths so
public will become familiar
where their money goes whj
they give to Federation.

A Message from
TO BE PLANNING
We are now near the end of our
first full year under the Tax
Reform act of 1986. One of the
few ways to reduce your tax bill
for 1987 is by taking advantage of
opportunities that give you tax
and financial planning benefits.
These opportunities also allow you
to do something special for your
Jewish community through the
The Time It Right For Giving
Why? Because a charitable gift
this year is deductible at the top
tax rate of 38.5 percent. And next
year, that rate is scheduled to
drop. So your charitable contribu-
tion is worth more this year than
To take advantage of the tax
changes, re-analyze your donation
strategy before Dec. 31.
What can you do now? Well, you
can give extra-large gifts to the
Foundation and create charitable
bank accounts to cover your
future gifts. For instance, if you
were planning to donate $5,000 a
year, you could endow that gift by
contributing $60,000 to a philan-
thropic fund this year. You'll get a
bigger deduction and you'll be
able to recommend charitable
gifts from the fund for years to
Gifts of appreciated property
held more than six months, such
as marketable securities, closely
held corporate stock and real
estate, are especially advan-
tageous because the donor's in-
come tax deduction is baaed on the
full fair market or appraised value
of the gift and no capital gains tax
need be paid. While you will have
to consider the possiblity of an
alternative minimum tax (AMT)
especially in 1987, most people
can give away a substantial
amount of appreciated property
without being subject to the AMT.
Such gifts of property, as well
as cash or Israel Bonds, can be us-
ed to create a Philanthropic Fund.
Foundation Income Plans
You can keep the fruit While
giving away the tree. Here's how.
Through a variety of IRS-
sanctioned plans, you can receive
income for your life, obtain a pre-
sent charitable and future estate
tax deduction, and provide a gift
that will continue giving for
future generations of Jews.
Because income can also be pro-
vided to your spouse, brother,
sister, grandchild or other
beneficiary, Foundation income
plans also allow you to do some
creative financial planning.
For example, consider the
The Charitable Remainder
Unitruat. For larger gifts you can
create a trust that provides in-
come to you or a named
beneficiary for life (or a term of
years), in an amount that varies
with market conditions. This trust
provides income based on a fixed
percentage of the market value of
property placed in the trust. Since
the assets are valued annually, the
income will vary from year to
The Charitable Remainder
Annuity Trust. This trust will pay
a fixed amount of income to you or
a named beneficiary for life or a
term of years. The amount to be
paid is determined at the time of
When you make a gift to create
any of these income plans, you will
receive a tax deduction based on
the value of the remainder that
will pass to the Federation upon
the termination of the trust.

Foundation's philanthropic in-
vestments, call Kenneth Kent at

By CAROL FRIESER
Soviet Jewry Sab-Committee
We began our escapade before
the crack of dawn. Up early,
showered, bundled in warm
clothing and carrying our "ra-
tions" for the day in backpacks
and carrybags. Off to the airport
before the rising sun, on our way
to a very exciting, fulfilling and,
despite the chill in the air, very
More than 80 of us from our
local Ft. Lauderdale Jewish
Federation and many thousands
more from around the country,
headed for Washington, D.C. and
the Soviet Jewry march on
Washington 1987. Among the
many faces were those who can
always be counted on when there
is a cause, religious leaders, any
who have recently become involv-
ed and the still sleepy faces of
many vibrant teenagers.
The planes took off from several
terminals as there weren't enough
seats available on any one flight.
Several bleary-eyed teens slept on
the way to Washington but awoke
to the chill in the air, and the ex-
citement as we boarded buses that
would take us to the Ellipse the
initial meeting place of over
200,000 of our people.
Our group was the first to arrive
at our Florida meeting place. We
immediately lost some teens who
went scouting around to find
friends from BBYO, High School

'Scrollof Honor' In Israel
Jacob and Peggy Brodzki, pro-
minent Jewish communal leaders
in Fort Lauderdale, dedicated a
lecture-hall at the Ramot Shapira
Educational Centre in the Judean
Hills in Israel during their
November visit there as the
leaders of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fert Lauderdale 20th
Anniversary Mission. Jacob, a
member of the Federation ex-
ecutive committee is also past
The dedication ceremonies
which were attended by the Mis-
sion members and the many
friends of the Brodzkis from
Israel and abroad were presided
over by Rabbi Dr. Yaacov Vains-
tein, President of Ramot Shapira.
The guest speaker was Dr. Harry
Horowitz, advisor to Prime
Minister Shamir of Israel. He
brought a message praising
Ramot Shapira which Mr. Shamir
described aa "one of the finest
educational institutions in Israel"
and complimenting the Brodzkis
for their outstanding support of
its programs for young people
from all parts of the Jewish world.
The members of the dedication
party were taken on a tour of
Ramot Shapira's facilities where
they met with groups of Ethiopian
students, and girl volunteers from
the Israel Defence Forces.
At the concluding luncheon the
Brodzkis were presented with a
Scroll of Honor for their service
and support of Jewish education.
Ramot Shapira Educational
Center was established 16 years
ago to provide answers to two
crucial problems facing Jewish
youth: the danger of negative ex-
ternal influences and assimilation
and a weakened Jewish identity.
Its formal and informal programs
are based on group living ex-
periences utilizing recreational,
social, religious and study
facilities of its impressive campus
at Moshav Beit Meir, 20 minutes
west of Jerusalem.
Peggy and Jacob Brodzki received the coveted
'Scroll of Honor'from Dr. Yaacov Vainstein.
The crowds started growing and
the Klezmer band was playing on
the bandstand. Groups were arriv-
ing with signs, banners, buttons,
sweatshirts, hats and scarves,
identifying where they were from.
The excitement was building!
By 1 p.m. we started moving en
masse towards the street. With
signs, flags, banners, and heads
held high we walked through the
streets to the mall singing as we
went. It was mostly the groups of
teens that started the singing and
we all joined in. Three of us, very
shortly, lost our group. We picked
up two more, lost them and found
two other familiar faces. The five
of us continued along our way in-
ching up closer to the front so we
could hear and see better.
The speeches started and the
words were so strong, "Let Our
People Go!" Isn't it strange that
those words are spoken every
Passover, echoing our past and
are still so important today?
The politicians spoke, the
organizers spoke, the former
refuseniks spoke. They all were
saying those same words... "Mr.
Gorbachev, Let Our People Go!"
There was singing and enter-
tainment We didn't even feel the
cold. We kept inching our way
closer to get a better view. We
saw some older people, lots in
their mid years, some children and
lots of teenagers and college
students. It was so refreshing to
see how important this was to
At 4:30 p.m., our group of five
headed to the metro to get back to
the airport. Surprise, surprise, all
our wayward teens snowed up...
what a relief! Then it was back on
the planes, heading home to our
homes. What an exuberant feeling
we all had. We were all on a high,
feeling that we had really been a
part of history. We all had a very
gratifying experience. I know I
will always remember it, but yet,
hope that I never have to do it
I want to thank Joel and Selma
Telles for putting this together for
us. I know our numbers surpassed
anything Joel ever dreamed of. I
want to thank the Federation for
subsidizing our trips. I know most,
if not all of us felt this was so im-
portant, that we would have gone
without the subsidy.
I saw how much money was
spent by the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry. They prepared
banners, signs, buses, audio equip-
ment and public relations. This
has to come from somewhere, and
I know with the step-up of activi-
ty, they are really short on funds.
I, personally, am donating our $50
subsidy back to the National Con-
ference of Soviet Jewry. I hope
my fellow travelers, and any of
you who were with us in spirit,
will join with me in helping to
build up sorely needed funds for
our Soviet families. Let us do this
as a group. Please send your
checks, made out to the "National
Conference of Soviet Jewry" to

"...set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
STAND BY ME
Each and every man, woman,
and child standing shoulder to
shoulder in front of the Capitol
steps on Dec. 6, felt personally
responsible for the freedom of the
Soviet Jews. It has been
estimated that at least one million
Jewish people have thus far ap-
plied to leave the Soviet Union.
As the day dawned clear and
crisp, people from Florida to
Canada ... from Great Britain to
Hawaii.. from Israel to Alaska,
formed one cohesive group ...
with only one goal. They would br-
ing the message of freedom for
Soviet Jewry to the Summit
meeting in Washington, D.C.
Mikhail Gorbachev was not due to
arrive until the following day, yet
this gathering of a quarter of a
million people would, no doubt,
have special significance.
Elie Wiesel was among the
many distinguished speakers who
addressed the people assembled
on the mall. Exactly one year ago
Mr. Wiesel won the Nobel Prize
for peace. Today he said, "We
have been waiting for this day for
20 years. It took 20 years for all of
us to be here. Without comparing
systems or events, it is now clear,
that had there been such a
demonstration of Jewish and
human solidarity and concern in
1948 and 1944, millions of Jews
would have been saved. Too many
were silent then, we are not silent
today!" Calling on Mr. Gorbachev
to acknowledge the linkage bet-

Congratulations to Mr. Lehrer
on having attained this very im-
ween an arms agreement for
peace and the freedom of Soviet
Jews, he proclaimed," .. Peace
and human rights are inseparable.
Our brothers and sisters must be
united with their people, our peo-
ple. Some Jews are more famous
than others, but all are equally
worthy of redemption ... Open
the doors and keep them open."
The crowd roared in approval as
Mr. Wiesel pledged that, "As long
as the Russian Jews need allies,
we shall be their allies. Never shall
we betray them, for then we
betray ourselves. Never will we
allow them to be alone, for then
our loneliness will come to haunt
us. And therefore, we are proud of
ourselves today, for we are giving
a message, not only to Mr. Gor-
bachev, but to the thousands and
thousands of Jews in the Soviet
Union. Now they know that we
are here ... and we shall come
back again and again as long as
they need us to be here.. Today
is a new beginning ... a renewed
commitment. If Mr. Gorbachev
did not know this before ... he
must know now."
As 260,000 people paraded
peacefully together in our own na-
tion, another gathering was under
way in the communist capitol. The
consequences for those marchers
were entirely different. The New
York Times reported, "(Moscow,
Dec. 6) ... A swarm of
plainclothesmen scattered a small
demonstration today by people
denied permission to leave the
Soviet Union, tearing their
placards and roughing up
Western television journalists at-
tempting to film the event.
Most of the protesters have
been denied exit visas on grounds
that they once worked with of-
ficial secrets. The majority are
Jews .. who have not had access
to official secrets for many years,
and some say they have never
dealt with classified information
...In front of the Foreign
Ministry a group of 14 Jewish pro-
testers stood with placards
around their necks bearing such
slogans as *I have no secrecy' and
'Ten years in refusal, let me go.'
Two dozen plainclothesmen
directed by a uniformed police col-
onel surrounded the protesters
and herded them through an
underpass to the park. There they
encountered additional scores of
plainclothesmen who tore the
signs from their necks."
An official document given by
the USSR to the foreign press
covering the summit said: "As for
the so-called 'political prisoners,'
we have none. In the USSR people
are not tried for their convictions
but only for concrete punishable
In referring to this statement as
a "he" on The Op-Ed page of the
New York Times of Dec. 10,1987,
A.M. Rosenthal wrote, "(They) do
not have political prisoners
because if you say anything that
(they) do not like, you are break-
ing the law. So then you are just a
convict, not a political prisoner."
He continues, "The political
prisoners are living, suffering
reminders that the Soviet Union is
a police state. That reality will not
change as long as the KGB exists
and police are permitted to lock up
Soviet citizens for talking and
writing. .. "Mr. Gorbachev
the witty, outgoing Mr. Gor-
bachev is one of the nasties. He
has made that plain enough by his
.. contemptuous dismissal of
American inquiries about human
rights." Mr. Rosenthal concludes,
"Let Mr. Gorbachev take care of
himself. The prisoners in his jails
cannot. Only remembrance will
loll the he that they do not exist."
