8358\ The Central Address of the Jewish Community...
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
"Reed community is rare in our society." The ties
that bind us sometimes seem frayed when compared
with the forces that can separate us and leave us feeling
alienated and alone. Nations, groups.. even families
are weakened when the values and beliefs that had for-
tified them are eroded by the pressures of a dizzying
technological age, pervasive materialism, or
unyielding ideologies thai turn us against each other."
The message of Federa-
tion president, Sheldon S.
Polish, who together with
Harold L. Oshry, executive
vice president, and Kenneth
B. Bierman, executive direc-
tor, and the entire family of
Federation leadership,
relate the important role ac-
complished and achieved by
the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale,
the central address of the
North Broward County
"In this kind of world, the
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Jewish community is truly
exceptional. Our people are
drawn together in a net-
work of caring that enriches
the lives of those involved,
while helping those in need
here at home, and
Special Edition
throughout the world.
Above everything else, we
view the preservation of this
fragile and precious sense of
community as Federation's
very highest priority.
Federation's role as the
'Cornerstone of the Com-
munity,' helping to hold
together the various
organizational strands of
North Broward Jewry, has
strengthened since the
beginnings some 20 years
ago. At the broadest level,
the Federation and its agen-
cies continue to forge new
partnerships with the con-

Thw Report, prepared
by the Communications
Department, shows what
the Jewish Federation is
doing with your help
to assist in sustaining
a vibrant Jewish com-
munity in North Broward
From 300 residents
and $10,000 in 1967, to a
population of 150,000
plus and $10 plus million
m 1987 in local major
agency allocations, the
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauder-
dale has come a long
way ... and thanks to
you, it's working for all
of our brethren, at
home, in Israel, and 33
other lands!
The wonder and beau-
ty of 'people helping
people,' that was the
heartfelt feelings of a
group of some 300 men
and women on Fort
Lauderdale's east.side,
some two decades ago,
and from those commit-
ted and dedicated 'guys
and gals' came the
beginning of the Jewish
Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale.
In the fifties, the focal
point of the North
Broward County Jewish
community was Temple
Emanu-El, but the real
awareness took place on
June 12, 1967, when a
telegram was dispatch-
ed to "All Friends of
Israel in Broward Coun-
ty," announcing the
Israel Emergency Fund
Rally. The Rally, held on
June 15 at the War
Memorial Auditorium,
was Broward County's
answer to the horren-
dous open warfare and
strife facing Israel's
brave people. And under
the chair of Fort
Lauderdale's Ludwik
Brodzki, $12,000 in UJA
gifts were announced.
The following year,
Brodzki was named
Federation's first presi-
dent and the chartered
leadership included the
communities of Fort

The Jewish Federation Budget and Planning Committee
Identifying Jewish Community Needs, Formulating
Programs and Services to Meet Those Needs
and Arriving at Allocations...
The Budget and Planning Com-
mittee of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale per-
forms an important and necessary
function by meeting on an ongo-
ing basis with the constituent
agencies and studying the budgets
and allocations requests that are
submitted on an annual basis.
The Jewish Federation and its
constituent agencies work
cooperatively in assessing long-
range needs and setting communi-
ty priorities. Through this com-
munity planning process of
research and discussion, monies
raised by a combined campaign
and maintained in a central fund
are put to optimal use. Because it
is an open process, community
planning fosters unity and
The goals of the planning and
budget committee are to a)
establish a rational and consistent
system for allocation for the funds
collected by die Federation, b)
develop a partnership relationship
between service agencies and the
Federation. Through ongoing ex-
changes of information between
the Federation and agencies, a
pattern and process emerge which
facilitate mutual agreement
regarding allocation requests and
programs, and c) Develop a total
community approach to the provi-
sion of services.
John Streng, chairman of the
Budget and Planning Committee,
stated, "The new modified
budgeting plan that we are adop-
ting this year holds a wonderful
opportunity to assure that we get
the maximum benefit for the com-
munity's dollar. We are trying to
place increased emphasis on plan-
ning to ensure improved alloca-
tions to the various recipients of
Federation funds."
Steven Fayne, co-chairman, ad-
ded, "No amount of planning can
bring services into being unless
sufficient funds are raised. As the
existing needs and services are
publicized to the community, the
fund-raising process is

What Is Federation?
The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale, central ad-
dress of the Jewish Community, is the embodiment of the theme
"One People, One Destiny" a voluntary association of concern-
ed and committed people dedicated to ensuring and enhancing the
quality of Jewish life in North Broward County, Israel and
throughout the world.
The Federation raises funds through the United Jewish Ap-
peal to support the many programs and services sponsored by the
Federation and its family of agencies serving Jewish people at
home and around the world.
The Federation allocates funds to local agencies, national
agencies, the United Jewish Appeal and the Joint Distribution
Committee for programs and services in Israel and throughout
the world.
The Federation's planning process works to identify needs
and trends and to provide effective and relevant services aimed at
improving the quality of Jewish life in Greater Fort Lauderdale.
The Federation recruits, develops, trains and renews com-
munity leadership.

of affairs against the backdrop of
approved program budget plans.

Mini-Mission Program
Provides First-Hand Look!
Harold Oshry, Federation
executive vice president and
General chairman, along with
Barbara K. Wiener, Federa-
tion Missions chair, are very
excited about the Jewish
Federation's Mini-Mission pro-
gram and the impact it has on
those who participate.
Harold Oshry related "A
mini-mission is a fantastic way
for people to get to know what
the Federation is doing locally
with the funds that are raised
from the annual Federa-
tion/UJA campaign. I en-
courage everyone to par-
ticipate in a rnini-mission.
A mini-mission is a trip to
the Jewish Community Center
campus where participants
view firsthand what major
beneficiary agencies like the
JCC and the Hebrew Day
School are accomplishing in
the community. We do tours of
the JCC and its many pro-
grams, the new David Posnack
Hebrew Day School complex,
the Gathering Place, ana the
Kosher Nutrition program. In
addition, there is the oppor-
tunity to meet with represen-
tatives of two very important
agencies Jewish Family Ser-
vices and the Central Agency
for Jewish Education.
Anyone can go on a mini-
mission any group from any
area or community can have
this marvelous opportunity to
see what the Jewish Federara-
tion/UJA is doing for our peo-
ple and for the future of the
Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
Arrangements to take a

- The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
and the 'Family of Agencies'
The Jewish Federation is the
embodiment of the theme "One
People, One Destiny" a volun-
tary association of concerned and
committed people dedicated to en-
suring and enhancing the quality
of Jewish life in North Broward
County, as well as in Israel and
throughout the world.
The Federation's United Jewish
Appeal campaign is the instru-
ment through which we raise
funds to carry out our mission and
through the heartfelt generosity
and unstinting dedication, in the
past two decades Federation has
helped tens of thousands of
Jewish men, women and children.
There are thousands of stories in
the Federation's 20th Anniversary
casebook of helping and being the
lifeline. Here are four local in-
terest items of your brethren who
have been served.
Now in her 70's, Esther was
always the one who sacrificed
most to care for her parents and
younger brothers and sisters. Her
role continues today, living in the
family home with her diabetic
brother, who like Esther, never
married. To get a short break
from thiB unrelenting role, Esther
and her brother spend many a day
at the Soref Jewish Community
Center, participating in the
Kosher Nutrition and Gathering
Place programs. Each day the
Federation specially equipped van
picks up Esther and her brother
where they are taken to the site,
enjoy their hot kosher luncheon,
companionship, musical presenta-
tions, educational and cultural
programs. Esther loves the
freedom, knowing that her
brother is in good loving hands,
with other frail elderly, and both
relishing the well deserved rest of
the daily challenge.
Federation is there for Esther
and her brother and they are
also there for you!
Divorced shortly after moving
to Fort Lauderdale, with no fami-
ly here and few friends, Karen
didn't know how she was going to
make ends meet while providing
adequately for her young
daughter Maria. Then she found a
way: the after school program at
the JCC enabled Karen to piece
together three part-time jobs,
gave Maria a warm, secure,
Jewish environment each week
day and allowed Karen to pay the
reduced fee which was all she
could afford. Despite some initial
behavior problems, Maria formed
important friendships at the JCC
and was looking forward to Day
Camp, which the center staff had
recommended to her mother.
Maria had a fabulous summer at
camp, especially delighting in the
singing and dancing on Shabbat.
Her mother, meanwhile, has the
peace and knowledge of knowing
her child was in good hands, learn-
ing about her Jewish heritage and
culture, and together her family
was becoming a viable and
cherished member of the North
Broward County community.
What a wonderful feeling this
Federation's Family is therefor

also there for you!

Beach, Margate and sur-
rounding areas.
With the advent of the
annual Federation/UJA
campaign, the budget
and planning process, an
important aspect of the
Federation'8 agenda
was established, and
soon the Federation
"Family of Agencies
and Beneficiaries' were
born. Countless hours of
discussion, consultation
and dissertation took
place, in an effort to
gather information, and
other intrastructure
data, to allocate the
necessary funding, to
ensure that the Federa-
tion, as the community's
central major address,
would help provide the
vital social service,
welfare, education,
cultural, and other
When the 1967 Honor
Roll Annual Report was
released in January,
1968, the Statement of
Allocations indicated
that $53,000 was
distributed to among
other services, locally,
the B'nai B'rith, Bureau
of Jewish Education,
Chaplaincy, and Mount
Sinai Hospital.
Soon the list began to
grow, new names began
to appear, in the sixties,
the Jewish Family Ser-
vice, Chaplaincy Pro-
gram, Jewish students
at Broward Community
College, Fort Lauder-
dale and Florida Atlan-
tic Universities; in the
seventies, Hebrew Day
School, Jewish Com-
munity Center, Jewish
High School of South
Florida, CAJE, Kosher
Nutrition and Gathering
Place, and Anti-
Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
And now in the
eighties, more than 50
major agencies and
beneficiaries including
the United Jewish Ap-
pe al, Local and
Regional, Other
Overseas, Community
Relations, Cultural and
National Service, are
the recipients of the an-
nual Federation/UJA
campaign funds.

mother. All of that changed
abruptly when Herb lost his sale
job of 11 years. Tempers became
short, family members grew
depressed and the potential for
abuse suddenly threatened the
household. His fruitless search for
work left Herb feeling anxious,
aimless and insecure. When the
family first contacted the Jewish
Family Service, Herb told the
counselor, "I don't want to live
anymore." Through productive
sessions at JFS plus the successful
involvement of skilled referred
counseling, Herb and his family
have managed to turn the comer
on this rough chapter in their lives
and look to the future with renew-
ed confidence and hope.

Herb and his family and they
are also therefor you!
Stuart is a college junior in ar-
chitectural engineering. A Na-
tional Merit semi-finalist, he did
well his first two years, but is'do-
ing poorly now. An outburst of
crying during High Holiday ser-
vices at the campus Hillel Center
brought him to the attention of
the rabbi there, who began
counseling sessions. Stuart was
shattered by his father's losing his
job after 15 years with a
prestigious architectural firm.
Stuart had planned to follow him
into the profession. But his
father's "failure" made Stuart
fearful. Counseling helped him to
see that failing tests was an "ex-
cuse" for changing his major. Fur-
ther counseling has been schedul-
ed along with testing and career
guidance at Hillel Foundation,
JFS and the Chaplaincy Commis-
sion. Soon Stuart will become a
positive member of a concerned
community who cares.

gregational community,
working hand-in-hand with
every group. Together we
have created a new strategy
for strengthening Jewish
identity and commitment. It
is this kind of pioneering
work that not only holds
great promise for advances
in programming, but also
helps avoid conflicts that un-
fortunately divide other
Jewish communities.
The pages of this special
edition will give you a fur-
ther insignt into the
wonderful work accomplish-
ed by the Federation and its
'family of local agencies and
beneficiaries.' They will
help you better understand
the important role perform-
ed for the young and old
alike the various aspects
of community participation
and activities ana how
your heartfelt support and
generosity is appreciated on
the smiling faces of your
brothers and sisters.
Review these services,
evaluate the funding, com-
pare the 'bang for your
buck,' and you will
recognize that Federation
provides broadbased pro-
grams that serve large
numbers of Jews, deepening
their Jewish identity and
their determination to
preserve our unique com-
munity. And we also learn
that if we leave one needy
Jew to fend for himself
isolated from the rest of us
the word 'community'
begins to lose its meaning.
In the past two decades,
the Federation, through the
profound dedication of our
people, have allocated
millions of dollars to fund
our agencies and
beneficiaries. And now as
we eye the horizon, we ap-
proach 1988 with optimism
and energy, striving toward
an even more committed
and compassionate Jewish
community, standing tall
and proud, continuing our
vital social welfare and ser-
vices creating new and ex-
citing programs and, most
of all, never denying our
brethren life-enriching, life-
sustaining aid."

The Samuel and Helene Soref
Jewish Community Center,
Perlman Campus, is the largest
beneficiary agency of the Jewish
Federation, serving about 15,000
people a month of all ages.
The center was initiated and
developed with the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale in 1975. To adequate-
ly meet the needs of the rapidly
growing Jewish community in
Broward County, the JCC moved
to its present site of 16 acres in
Plantation in 1979.
Today, the Center has over 13
buildings, a large aquatics com-
plex, a modern gym, playgrounds
and athletic fields, and a social
JCC president David Schulman
is very proud of the fact that con-
struction is underway of a new
early childhood Center, a 15,000
square foot pre-school which is
scheduled to be completed this
summer. The new early childhood
center will enable the JCC to meet
the service needs of an ever-
expanding Jewish community.
The Jewish Community Center
provides a forum for Cultural
Arts; a social and singles center,
an educational facility for early
childhood, elementary, teen, and
tween student programs; services
for the needy and handicapped;
athletics and fitness programs; a
meeting place for Jewish and com
... Outdoor Pool
munity groups; office space for
Jewish organizations; and the
WECARE program.
Allyn Kanowsky, who is direc-
tor of membership and develop-
ment at the JCC, described the
many programs available to peo-
ple of all ages:
Early Childhood; "The Mommy
and Me" program for 1-2 year
olds is an attempt to start the
child socializing in a controlled en-
vironment. The Pre-school pro-
gram serves 200 children from
ages 2-4, teaching them about
Judaism, play, and Jewish
Elementary School Programm-
ing: An "After School Program"
serves elementary school students
from the time school ends to 6
p.m. Activities include supervised
homework and study sessions,
holiday celebrations, and arts and
sports. An "After School Enrich-
ment Program" provides special
activities for children including
dance classes, sports, ceramics,
and gymnastics.
Tweens and Teens: activities in-
clude trips, social activities,
sports, driver's education, and
SAT preparation.
JCC Summer Day Camp: for
ages 2-14, this program attracts
some 600 kids which have an op-
portunity to participate in sports,
drama, music, trips, swimming,
and Judaica programs throughout

Resource Meeting Place for

A Message from the President
David B. Schulman
The Jewish Federation and the Jewish Community Center are
working together to make our community a more satisfying place
to live. The Federation's contribution to our center makes up 25
percent of our budget and thus makes a difference in both the
quantity and quality of our overall programming. The Federa-
tion's commitment enables us to help people in need there are
people who need our services that often can't afford to pay a
whole lot, and with Federation dollars we are able to run pro-
grams that wouldn't otherwise be available to these people.
The future of the Jewish Community Center looks bright. Our
goal is to do outreach programming in Coral Springs and in the
eastern side of town, and thus provide more programming for the
entire community.
Some times we're a community of Jews instead of a Jewish
community, and by doing additional programming throughout the
whole community it will help us become more of a Jewish
To that end, the JCC is in the progress of acquiring building
space in Coral Springs in conjunction with the Jewish Federation;
it's a partnership in progress which will provide Northwest
Broward with a place that will be utilized for so many important
and interesting programs and organizations. So, we encourage
you to join us in making 1988 a rewarding year.

The Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale is proud
to sponsor the Kosher Nutrition
The Kosher Nutrition Program
is a lunch program offered to
Broward County seniors over the
age of 60. Hot Kosher meals are
served to about 150 people daily at
two locations the Jewish Com-
munity Center at 6501 West
Sunrise Blvd., Plantation, and at
the Lauderhill Mall on State Road
7 in Lauderhill.
Irving Libowsky, who is the
Jewish Federation chairman of
the Kosher Nutrition Program,
says, "It's more than just feeding
people a meal, it's getting them
out of their apartments and allow-
ing them the chance to enjoy a
social life with others who come to
the program."
The program includes compa-
nionship opportunities, transpor-
tation, and limited activities and
entertainment. Libowsky adds,
"We have made arrangements for
transporting these people to and
from the program in vans that
were purchased with Federa-
tion/UJA dollars, in addition to
having these people utilize the
County transportation system."

Friedland related, "When
you're elderly, getting around to
different functions is a problem,
and so at the centers we bring in
Rabbis, cantors, and entertainers
who share their love of Yid-
dishkeit with the people. For ex-
ample, we have a retired butcher
who had never played the violin
before, but who picked it up very
quickly and now he comes in and
entertains frequently."

"People who are suffering from
isolation and depression can come
to "The Gathering Place" and ex-
perience a kind of renewal," says
Bonnie Krauss, program director
of Federation'8 Gathering Place.
The Gathering Place is an adult
day care center operating five
days a week on the Jewish Com-
munity Center, Perlman campus,
in Plantation. The center is
geared towards a highly-
functioning group of frail elderly
whose average age is 86.
This unusual day care center for
senior adults is completely funded
by the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
The weekly program offers
adult basic education classes
taught by a certified professional
teacher from the Broward County
Board of Education.
The daily schedule commences
with an hour of adult basic educa-
tion, followed by the morning ex-
ercise class. Then participants
have lunch with others as part of
the "Kosher Nutrition Program."
There is an afternoon activity
which may be a music class, Yid-
dish lesson, ceramic course, or
arts and crafts session. There are
monthly visits from members of
the Jewish Federation's chaplain-
cy program, and volunteer musi-
cians come to the Gathering Place
In fact, the Gathering Place
welcomes any musicians with a
particular talent to come to the
Gathering Place and perform.
The Gathering Place provides
door-to-door transportation for
participants, as the center has its
own fleet of vans that have been
customized for easy access.
The program director talked
about the special relating that oc-
curs on a frequent basis between
the seniors and the kids on the
JCC campus: "Because we share
the campus with the David
Posnack Hebrew Day School,
there is a wonderful opportunity
for intergenerational programs.'
Krauss related that the kids will
often come in and try out then-
latest projects and plays on the
adults. There is also a letter ex-
change between the two groups
and many of the kids and the
seniors treat each other as
adopted grandparents and
Bonnie Krauss concluded,
"There is a definite bonding that
takes place that is very wonderful,
which occurs amongst the par-
ticipants, as well as between the
staff and the seniors."

The David Posnack Hebrew Day
School is looking at a bright
future. The school currently
serves 285 children, from pre-
kindergarten through the eighth
grade from the entire North
Broward area. With the comple-
tion of our new complex, we now
have the capacity to educate over
400 kids. The Hebrew Day School
has the most comprehensive pro-
gram in Hebrew/Judaic studies, as
well as a complete secular pro-
gram including classes in com-

Ben Marcus, who is honorary
president of the David Posnack
Hebrew Day School and its ad-
visory board chairman, talked
about the history of the school and
how the new complex on the JCC
Perlman Campus became a major
focus of the community.
The previous complex was made
up of a couple of small buildings
which have been bursting at the
seams to support over 200
children. Marcus said, "When
myself and others saw the condi-
tion of the old buildings, I realized
the school must have a new
building to realize its potential."
Plans were drawn up for a new
building, and with donations from
the estate of David Posnack,
along with major contributions
from Marcus and others, construc-
tion was begun on the $2 million
The new school building became
a reality on Jan. 20, when a pro-
cessional of kids, teachers,
parents, community leaders, and
Rabbis made its way from the old
building to the new complex. As

the kids and their teachers made
their way inside, it was obvious
that this would be a new beginn-
ing for the future of Jewish educa-
tion in the Fort Lauderdale area.
Sol Schulman, who has been the
construction chairman of the pro-
ject since its inception, described
the new complex and what it will
offer the students. The main
building will house large, spacious
classrooms, a library, resource
center, science labs, a ceramics
room, a computer lab, and ad-
ministrative offices.
The second building is a
"cafetorium" which can convert
to an auditorium, which will have
sizable storage faculties, a large
stage and an integrated sound
system. The cafeteria will feed
about 260 kids at one time and will
accommodate close to 350 people

Message from the president
Dr. Marc A. Schwartz
I am very proud of the fact that we recently moved into our new
building, a dream that has finally been realized. The new two-
building complex of the David Posnack Hebrew Day School will
allow us to almost double our student population.
We are the only Hebrew Day School in the North Broward
County Federation area. The school will enable the children to
work more efficiently in roomier facilities with the most up-to-
date equipment possible. The result will be an environment con-
ducive to better study habits and learning.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale has played a
significant role in providing the dollars and resource people to
enable us to complete this beautiful new complex. Now we are
continuing to expand and are counting on the parents and the
community to help pay off the debt on this complex.
To have a complete Jewish community, you need a Hebrew Day
School and the Jewish Federation has been and will continue to be
the foundation of our support for the future of this school and this
port, especially in making this
new building a dream fulfilled. If
it were not for the Jewish Federa-
tion, the Hebrew Day School
would not exist. In addition to the
financial commitment of this
Federation, The Federation's
moral support and expertise given
to the Day School has been very
Merenstein continued, "Both
the purpose and existence of the
Hebrew Day School are closely
aligned with the Jewish Federa-
tion. The education of our children
is critical to providing Jewish
Leadership in the community, and
tomorrow's leaders are right here
in this Day School."
The staff of the Hebrew Day
School invites the community to
come out and see the new complex
and to talk with them about the
educational opportunities
available for their children.

The Jewish Family Service of Broward County*
Jewish Family Service's staff of
caring professionals has seen
countless people, young and old,
who need emotional and financial
help. They have seen clients carry
burdens larger than anyone would
ever have thought was humanly
possible. But when the family,
single parent, widower,
Alzheimer's caregiver, Russian
immigrant or senior citizen calls
for help, Jewish Family Service is
there for them. The agency meets
a myriad of needs each day
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 of
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
for concerns ranging from paren-
ting problems and anxiety to
divorce and substance abuse. "We
see primarily a Jewish population
but our counselors are available to
anyone in the community who has
a need," says Rosenstein.
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.
"That's why our funding
sources like the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale -
are so critical," Rosenstein points
out. "We literally could not open
our doors each day without
Federation funding."
During the past fiscal year, ap-

says Bernstein.
"It's our job to determine how

in their homes, Jewish Family
Service introduced Respite Care
in 1986. The service provides
relief to a spouse or relative who

the form of a homemaker, a home
health aide, a companion or a com-
bination of the three for up to 24
"It is emotionally and physically
draining to give 'round the clock
care. Respite Care gives the
caregiver the necessary relief he

Family Service offers Family Life

Samuel Scheck Hillel Community Jewish High School
Providing Quality Judaic and
General Studies for Jewish Teens...
... Science in Action
Message From the
Michael Scheck
The Scheck Hillel Community
High School is proud to be in its
18th year. We are a full service
day school that is dedicated to giv-
ing our students a quality Jewish
education in addition to a sound
program of general studies.
We are also very much indebted
to the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale which
subsidizes the Scheck Hillel Com-
munity High School. The Federa-
tion has backed the Jewish High
School from its inception and we
have a number of children that
come to us from Fort Lauderdale.
The Federation support that we
receive helps our school offer
reduced tuition to needy students
from the Fort Lauderdale area.
The fact that we are supported
by three Federations as well as
other national organizations is an
indication of the high priority that
this major Jewish philanthropy
places on Jewish education.
The Samuel Scheck Hillel Com-
munity Day School is 18 years old,
and this past summer merged
with the Jewish High School of
South Florida. The total enroll-
ment is 900 students from age two
through high school.
In their studies, the students
divide their time between Jewish
and general studies. We have
students from all walks of life and
religious background.
There are over 90 teachers in
the school, all certified by the
State of Florida or the National
Board of License for Jewish sub-
jects. The Scheck Hillel High
School is geared towards prepar-
ing its students for a college
The School's dean, Rabbi
Menachem Raab, is overjoyed
with the school and its committed
student body.
Rabbi Raab related, "As a ma-
jor institution in the educational
community of South Florida, the
Scheck Hillel High School looks to
the future for continued growth.
We anticipate that in the years to
come the impact of what this
school does will be seen on all the
Jewish and general institutions in
our area."

The B'nai B'rith Youth Organization
Helping Teenagers Achieve Personal Growth...
... Student Leadership Weekend

The B'nsi B'rith Youth
Organization (BBYO) is an
organization composed of 9-12
graders who are looking for a con-
nection to their Jewishness during
their high school years.
"BBYO was born out of the pro-
test over the fraternal system in
high schools, where Jews were not
allowed to join fraternities," said
Richard Kessler, program assis-
tant for the Gold Coast Council of
BBYO which operates out of the
JCC campus in Plantation.
Kessler continued that BBYO is
designed to get Jewish kids
together, and to foster leadership
development and spiritual
growth. "This is a youth lead
organization; the groups have
parliamentary procedure and they
hold their own elections," said
There are two major youth divi-
sions in the Fort Lauderdale area,
which is part of the Gold Coast
Council region of BBYO that ex-
tends from Miami to Wellington.
They are Aleph Zadik Aleph
(AZA) boys and B'nai B'rith Girls
(BBG). There are 20 active BBG
and AZA chapters throughout the
Gold Coast region.
Jerry Kiewe, assistant regional
director of BBYO in the Gold
Coast Council says, "There are
many opportunities for inter-
chapter programming between
the AZA boys and the BBG girls
brother and sister chapters in
the same area often do programs
together, including dances, fund-
raisers, picnics, and community
service projects."
Many of the chapters are involv-
ed in ongoing or special communi-
ty projects. For example, some of
the chapters collected canned
goods for needy families for the
Thanksgiving holiday. Other
chapters do blood pressure drives.
One important Gold Coast Project
which has been ongoing for the
past eight years is the "Penny a
Life" project. BBYO is attemp-
ting to raise $60,000 which equals
six million pennies each penny
representing a life that was lost
during the Holocaust. So far,
BBYO members have raised over
$17,000 and when the goal is at-
tained, the money will be donated
to various Jewish Philanthropies.
Membership training is a major
part of the BBYO experience.
Chapters will often have over-
night training programs at a
member's home. "The idea," said
Kessler, "is to train new
members, teaching them the
rituals, traditions, and structure
of BBYO. Many of today's com-
munity leaders were members of
As part of their fund-raising
responsibilities, AZA and BBG
chapters are required to raise a
certain amount of money each
year for the International Service
Fund (ISF), which helps support
leadership training conventions
and also projects on Israeli set-
tlements known as Moshavs.

Message From Director-Nancy Berlin
B'nai B'rith Hillel continues to serve the spiritual and social
needs of Jewish College students and young adults throughout
the Broward/Palm Beach communities and statewide. We are an
organization that believes in maintaining the togetherness and
Jewishness of our people after their high school years. We plan a
whole host of activities every month parties, trips, concerts,
picnics, religious discussions and rap sessions.
The Jewish Federation has played an important role in the fun-
ding of our organization. Without the Federation support we
receive, we wouldn't be as effective in the Broward/Palm Beach
area. Thanks to the Jewish Federation, we have been able to ex-
pand our programs and staff to offer more activities and rewar-
ding experiences to the Jewish student.
I encourage all young adults to find out more about Hillel, a
place the Jewish student can call home.
"Without the assistance and support of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Ft. Lauderdale, we could not have grown as much as
we have."
"The encouragement that they provide, through grants and
scholarships, has assured us that money will not be a stumbling
block for a deserving student to experience the once-in-a lifetime
opportunity, that is the High School in Israel."
"By the very nature of its help, every time a student from the
Ft. Lauderdale area attends High School in Israel, the Ft.
Lauderdale Community is performing a Mitzvot.'
"Over 60 students from the Ft. Lauderdale area will attend
H.S.I, this year. With continued support from Federation, we
look forward to growing and reaching even more students in the
coming years."

The Jewish Federation Chaplaincy Commission

Extending a Special Touch Through Pastoral Care and Personal Visits.
Rabbi Albert B. Schwartz,
director of the Federation
Chaplaincy program, says that the
Chaplaincy Commission is an
outreach program in which a
dedicated corps of volunteers
Rabbis, Cantors, and lay people
service those that are confined to
hospitals, nursing homes and
prisons. The object of this group is
to reach those people that are cut
off from the normal social flow
and try to help their spiritual
Rabbi Schwartz talked about
the role of the Jewish Federation
in the program: "I feel the Jewish
Federation is the central address
of the Jewish Community, and
therefore bears the responsibility
to reach out to these people, show-
ing them that we care and that we
will respond to their needs. It is
because of the funding by the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale that we are able
to help those that are confined in
the community."
There are currently close to 20
hospitals that are served by the
Chaplaincy program. Each
hospital is manned by a Rabbi who
makes the pastoral visit once a
week. The chaplain on staff works
in coordination with hospital per-
sonnel to fulfill his obligations.
Message from
the Chairman
Alfred Golden
The Chaplaincy Commission of the Federation is a link to the
religiousity of the community, and that is manifested by bringing
services to institutions not normally covered by Temples and
Synagogues Hospitals (unaffiliated patients), nursing homes
and prisons.
The Chaplaincy commission has taken under its wing such cur-
rent problems as chemical and substance abuse and AIDS. We are
ready to tackle any new problem in the community that is not
covered by other institutions, or we will work with any recognized
organization to solve any issue where we can help.
I feel that we are most fortunate to have as our Chaplain a man
of the stature of Rabbi Schwartz, whose erudition and dedication
are superb.
All hospitals have a Kosher food
program that is available to its pa-
tients and the chaplain works with
the hospital dietician to ensure
that it's done properly.
In the hospitals and nursing
homes, on Fridays and holidays
there is a kindling of the Sabbath
and holiday lights. Those hospitals

Donald Fischer
I am very proud of the fact that
we now have an office in Coral
Springs to raise funds for the
Federation/UJA campaign and
also provide services and pro-
grams to Northwest Broward
residents. This office will serve as
a springboard for so many
wonderful activities to come.
I am delighted to announce that
we have received authorization to
lease another building near the
Coral Springs Office which is
presently being renovated. The
building is in Trafalgar Square
and the additional space that this
office will encompass will enable
the Federation, in coordination
with the JCC, to provide a whole
slew of new programming to the

Israel sends volunteers to work in
the Israel Defence Forces for
maintenance work replacing
reservists, who are called up for
their reserve duty.
The work in Israel Defence
Force bases involves cleaning,
counting, oiling, repairing, pain-
ting, storing and re-issuing sup-
plies in the various branches of
the service. Period of service is for
23 days.
Two new programs have recent-
ly been inaugurated: one for 23
days, and the other for two or
three months. Volunteers are
placed in hospitals to carry out all
the necessary requirements of a
functioning hospital, such as
prepare instruments for opera-
tions, working in the kitchen, tak-
>ng the food trays and feeding pa-
tients, working in the laundry,
and above all, visiting the patients
w order to give them moral sup-
port for their recovery. The
longer program involves working
n a children's hospital.
Jewish Federation's funding of
our program helps defray the
operation costs. Plus the ability to
offer a $160 subsidy toward the
airfare costs of every
matriculated student who is
younger than the age of 26.

the new office, as will CAJE, and
other beneficiary agencies.

end, a monthly calendar will be set

ed, "this has been something the
residents of Northwest Broward
have wanted for quite some time,
and we are proud to be initiating
some of these programs in March.
All these services are here for the
community to take advantage of
and it shows the Federation's
commitment to this area."
Fischer is also thrilled with the
outpouring of interest in leader-
ship training and the fact that
more people want to get involved
in the Jewish Federation.

In 1980, the Coral Springs
Coalition of Jewish Organizations
was formed. It is composed of
several Jewish organizations
which have combined forces to
make their presence known in the
community, to have a voice in the
Northwest Broward area.
We serve as an information
source, "a welcome wagon" for
new arrivals into the area. The
coalition also acts as a guardian of
Jewish rights should they be
violated in Northwest Broward
and we serve as a liaison to the ci-
ty government and all County
agencies. We also serve to
educate the non-Jewish communi-
ty and civic leaders as to the needs
and rights of Jewiah residents liv-
ing in this area.
The Coral Springs Coalition of
Jewish Organizations has been
recognized for its annual
Chanukah festival that is held at
Mullins Park. The Festival is held
in cooperation with the City of
Coral Springs and is sponsored in
part by the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, which
contributed $3,000 this past year
to our organization, for which we
are grateful. The Chanukah
festival, which started out in 1980
attracting 500 people has grown
to over 5,000 strong in 1987.
The Coral Springs Coalition is
also proud to be sponsoring two
