Early response 'thrills' Women's Division
for its showing of 'The Precious Legacy'
Pictured is a shviti plaque, one of the
many Judaic treasures in "The Precious
Legacy" which is coming in January to
the Bass Museum in Miami Beach.
This plaque, a silvered repousse
artifact made in Moravia about 1880
with stippled brass, denotes this
sentence from Psalms: "I have set the
Lord always before me." It usually was
placed on the bimah of a synagogue in
front of the Ark. In ancient times,
smaller versions were made to be kept in
the home.
"The Precious Legacy: Judaic
Treasures from the Czechoslovak State
Collections," a magnificent collection
has an almost unbelievable aura, because
the items were confiscated by the
Nazis during World War II from Jewish
homes in Bohemia and Moravia while the
owners of these treasures were being sent
to death and concentration camps.
The exhibit, currently at the Smithsonian
Institution in Washington, la being sent on tour
to five other cities and the Base Museum in
Miami Beach gets it first. It will be opened to the
public at the Baas Museum Jan. 24 with general
admission at 18.

committee. He is member of the Cabinet consisting of
leaders of condominium complexes in various cities in
North Broward.
The Cabinet is headed by Samuel K Miller of
Deerfield's Century Village, vice president of the
Federation. During the discussion on strategies and
goals for these communities in the 1964 UJA campaign,
he said that the volunteers "must try to discourage the
response from contributors who say 'put me down for
the same amount as last year.' Miller added:
"Actually, if you accept that response, it means the
contributor is giving less than he gave last year,
because of inflation."
He urged that the leaders in the various communities
encourage the spirit and enthusiasm for giving to a
worthy cause. "If we generate that spirit and
enthusiasm," he said, "people will generate dollars."
IRVING SPECTOR, who is chairing the Water
Bridge UJA committee, said: "Jews by nature are
givers." He pointed out that when his ancestors came
to the United States, they donated their nickels and
dimes for the Jewish cause. He compared those nickels
and dimes to the 10s and 20s that some people give
today. "People," he said, "must realize that that isn't
Emphasizing the fact that 94 percent of UJA's total
dollars come from six percent of the contributors, Al
Effrat, Federation's assistant rmp igp director,
suggested that the committees be encouraged to seek
increased commitments.
"A gift of chai sounds significant," he said, "but
$18 do**>n't buy much. We spend more than that when
we buy a cup of coffee one day a week and if the saving
of a Jewish life isn't worth more than a few cups o?
coffee what a selfish and confused group we've become
in this country." His remarks drew a burst of applause
as he concluded: "We are not a charity. We are a good
cause. We are not scAaorrvrs (beggars), we are saving
Condo Cabinet Chairman Miller pointed oat that
special gifts functions serve a useful purpose in the
various sSSMSSSJstM by suggesting a minimum
contribution to UJA to attend the event and learn more
about the work of UJA in Israel while socializing with
their peers. Katzberg added that Jewish people are
social people, and "if there is a special function, they
want to be there."
Miller announced that the Condo Cabinet's members
will meet again at 10 a.m. Tuesday Dec 13 at the
Federation office, 8358 W. Oakland Park Blvd. At that
time, several of the communities will have had a fund-
raising event and will report on the efforts of their

Felice Sincoff, president of the Women's
Division, and Charlotte Padek, chairing the $500-
minimum contribution to the Women's Division
United Jewish Appeal of 1984, are thrilled by the
enthusiastic response of those seeking to take
part in the champagne buffet and private showing
of the 350 artifacts in the collection.
The response is coming from a number of those
making an additional contribution of 1100 to the
Federation to enable the Bass Museum to have
the exhibition open for the Sunday night special
event. In addition, the cover charge for the buffet
and bus transportation is $25 each with guests,
also at $25, invited to join the contributors of
$500 or more to the Women's Division's 1984
UJA campaign.

to view the collection during its two-year tour
across the United States.

Super Sunday April 1
Four Federations: the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, and those of South Broward
(Hollywood), South County (Boca Raton) and Palm Beach
County, have joined forces to conduct a Super Sunday
phon-a-thon on Sunday, April 1.
Leaders of these Federations are completing plans to
coordinate their public relations efforts to make the Jew-
ish communities of the two counties aware of the necessity
of making commitments for the 1984- United Jewish Ap-
peal campaigns and their Project Renewal campaigns.
The April 1 date, a change from the National UJA's
January Super Sunday and the National UJA Shabbat to
be observed in synagogues around the country, coming
between Purim and Pesach, was selected as "clean-up"
effort to reach those who may have missed making a
commitment at a community or organization or Temple
fundraiser for UJA or who are unaffiliated with groups in
the counties.

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
A tribute to
Friday. Novembers 10
The Social Security Wotch'effect
Mordecai Kaplan
Raaaat Shalom Synagogue, Plantation
Mordecai M. Kaplan, rabbi professor, theologian,
philosopher, founder of the Reconstructionist Movement
and intellectual guiding light of American Judaism died
Nov. 8 at the age of 102. With the death of Rabbi
Mordecai M. Kaplan, the Jewish People has lost one of
our most original and creative thinkers.
In his many years of teaching and challenging the accepted ideas
of previous generations Kaplan made us all aware that there are many
different ways to view Judaism, yet he was always unflinchingly loyal
to the idea of the unity of the Jewish People. Mordecai Kaplan
changed the way that we look at Judaism in the same way that Freud
changed the way we view the human mind or Einstein changed the
way we view the universe.
Because of Mordecai Kaplan we think differently today about
Judaism than we did before he lived and even those who never heard of
Mordecai Kaplan have been influenced in their thinking by him. More
importantly, even those who disagreed with him have accepted his
basic premises and have adopted the language with which he
described the Jewish situation.
According to Charles Liebman, writing in the American Jewish
Year Book, "The attitudes of moat American Jews are closer to
reconstructionism than Orthodoxy, Conservatism, or Reform, and .
Raconstructionism comes closer to any other Movement or School of
thought to articulating the meaning of Judaism for American
Jews ..."
Reroastntctionisaa, of course, is the philosophy of Judaism that is
based on Dr. Kaplan's thought as developed in his classic work
Judaism as a Civilization: Toward A Reconstruction of American
Jewish Life and his 20 other books and countless pamphlets and
It was Kaplan's genius to recognize the changing nature of
Jewish life in the 20's and 30's and to provide a blueprint, a step by
step program, for the continuity of Jewish life in the face of what
seemed at the time to be the overwhelming tide of assimilation.
Simply stated, Kaplan's philosophy is based on the idea that
Judaism exists for the Jewish people, not the Jewish people for
Judaism, and that Judaism should be defined as the evolving religious
civilization of the Jewish People.
Kaplan recognized that religion is a social phenomenon and, as
such, an understanding of Judaism must begin with an understanding
of the Jewish People which has evolved throughout history and has
encountered many influences during the ebb and flow of that history.
The Jewish People has developed a unique civilization that, like
any civilization, has a history, literature, language, folkways, customs
and traditions, a land, foods, music, standards of conduct, and
spiritual ideals of its own. But two aspects of this Jewish civilization
make it unique. First, it is ours: it is the evolving religious civilization
of the Jewish People; and second, it is a religious civilization having at
its core the ethics, morals, customs and traditions that make up the
Jewish religion.
Kaplan further recognized that we Jews always live in two
civilizations simultaneously and constantly perform a kind of
balancing act with the two civilizations. Reflecting the American
Jewish experiences Kaplan showed how it would be possible to be both
fully American and fully Jewish without giving up one or the other of
these competing civilizations.
Throughout history Jews have had to f-ninmrwUf their lives to
living in two civilizations and had survived, even flourished, and
Mordecai Kaplan was able to extrapolate from that historical ex-
perience to give American Jews a way to continue to live as Jews
despite the strong trend toward assimilation. In fact, we fully
American, he showed us, only by being fully Jewish because that is
what the American way of life demands of us.
At the heart of Reconstructionist Judaism, and of Kaplan's
teaching, is the conviction that every generation has the responsibility
to "reconstruct" its beliefs and practices in light of its particular
experiences. So many of the reconstructed beliefs and practices
suggested by Mordecai Kaplan have become totally accepted by
American Jews that it is difficult to realize that when Kaplan first
suggested them they were considered so radical that a small group of
fanatic Orthodox rabbis even '>r>mmiinyyt^" him an act that
was, of course, repudiated by the mainstream of American Jewry.
The ceresaony of Bat MiUvah was invented by Mordecai Kaplan
when, in 1922, his daughter Judith was called to the bimah on a
Shabbat morning at the Society for the Advancement of Judaism (The
first Reconstructionist Synagogue). He consistently called for the
granting of equality to women in all aspects of Judaism, including the
right to be counted in the minyan, to be called to the Torah and to
train for the rabbinate and when the Reconstructionist Rabbinical
College was founded by Dr. Kaplan, women were admitted to the very

Recently, there has been much
concern raised regarding what is
known as the Social Security
"notch effect." Let me take a
moment to explain the origin of
the "notch" and what it really
means to those born between
1917 and 1921.
In 1977 it was realized that an
error was made in the way Social
Security benefits were figured.
This flaw created benefit
overpayments and eventually
would have paid retirees benefits
much larger than their earnings
before retirement. If this error
was not corrected, the system
soon would go bankrupt.
What could be done to resolve
this difficult problem? Could the
government go back and collect
all the money overpaid? It was
decided this was not a fair
solution in the same way it would
not be proper for a company to
ask employees to return wages
due to a payroll mistake. After
much thought, it was decided to
adopt a new formula for figuring
benefits which would affect all
Rep Dan Mica
those born after 1916.
Unfortunately, to bring the
system back to a sound financial
base, benefits paid under this
new formula would be somewhat
lower than those paid under the
old formula.
To help make the transition
between old and new formulas as
easy as possible, a special five-

founder of the University of Judaism; was a founder of the New York
Kehillah; a founder of the Young Israel Movement, and an innovator
in Jewish education as Dean of the Teacher's Institute at the Jewish
Theological Seminary. He shaped generations of Conservative rabbis
as professor of Homiletics and Jewish Thought at the Seminary and
exercised tremendous influence on the Reform Movement through his
At a time when Zionism was Unpopular he was a staunch sup-
porter of the Jewish struggle for a homeland of our own and visited
Palestine (later Israel) many times, in fact he was the first visiting
professor at the Hebrew University serving on the faculty for two
Later, he made his home in Jerusalem and embodied in his own
life the ideal of Aliyah and upbuilding of Eretz Yisroel as the spiritual
center of world Jewry. It may be hard to believe, but there was a time
when most American Jews were anti-Zionist but Mordecai Kaplan
helped to reverse that and bring about the strong pro-Zionist sen-
timent that we all share today -
Whether Orthodox, Conservative, Reconstructionist or Reform,
secular or Zionist, we have all been touched and enriched by Mordecai
Kaplan's long and produ'-tive life. Eliezra Berkowitz, an Orthodox
scholar, has written, "Even in disagreement one readily acknowledges
him as one of the outstanding personalities in American Jewry, whose
influence has been felt strongly for several generations."
Kaplan himself wrote in "Not So Random Thoughts": "There are
those who are great because of what others do because of them."
Mordecai Kaplan has earned the appellation "great" because of what
countless numbers have done because of him.
Those who are enabled to live proud and meaningful Jewish lives
because of him, who maintain their bond with our people and our
traditions because he showed them how, and the many rabbis and
educators who were inspired by him to continue t.. Leach the
civilization of Judaism.
This man from the little village of Swenziany, Lithuania, who on
his father's side came from Mitnagdic stock and on his mother's side
from Chassidic stock and thus, in his own words, inherited "a
tradition of deep piety and of yearning for beauty, on the one side, and
a tradition of intellectual sincerity and moral forth-rightness on the
other" has in his own life taught us all the value of the beauty of
Judaism and the necessity to constantly re-examine it and reconstruct
it to meet our needs. We will all miss him.

friendly and open since that
country' succeeded West Ger-
many in the rotating chairman-
ship of the European Economic
Community's (EEC) Council of
Ministers, diplomatic circles here
have noted.
Among the EEC member
states, Greece was the most out-
spoken critic of Israel, especially
after the invasion of Lebanon on
June. 1982. The Israelis were
therefore pleasantly surprised
when, under the chairmanship of
Athens, no new EEC initiatives
were launched against Israel, and
the "financial protocol"
providing EEC credits to Jeruaa-
lem was implemented.
A Greek diplomat posted to
Bonn told an Israeli represent*
trv that his government, how-
ler sympathetic to the Arab
<*use, has reassessed some of its
Positions on Middle East issues.
The diplomat explained, ac-
cording to sources bare, that the
Arab world, and the oil producing
countries in particular, have dons
nothing to reward Greece politi-
cly or economically for its long-
ending support.

It is rot only the largest
amount of aid ever voted for
Israel but allows the Israelis to
use $550 million in military
credits toward building their

which bad generated controversy
within the Reagan Administra-

The aid package which the

It's haggis, but is it Kosher?
As almost everyone knows, Scots have long been partial to a dish called
haggis. This is a pudding made from the minced meat of a sheep or cal
combined with seasonings and boiled in a skin casing. But as hardly anyone
knows, mere is a shop in Edinburgh where this specialty is truly the most
special, rbr here is sold the only Kosher haggis in all the British Isles!
Now there is another delicacy for which the Scots have shown
their fondness. And while it, too, is akin to no other, it is one whose
appeal is somewhat broader: fine scotch whisky. Why, even Americans
have shown themselves partial to this spirit, and the one they prefer is
J&.B Rare Scotch. For its flavor possesses such a soft and mellow
smoothness that it is said to whisper. Which is more than you can say
for haggis.

The Jewish Fbridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale

Hartford's Project Renewal partner city
delivers Torah to Temple hit by arson
Four months ago, several
Torahs of the Emanuel Syna-
gogue in West Hartford, Conn.,
were reduced to ashes when the
ark and the synagogue's chapel
were set on fire. It was one of a
series of arson attacks on area
synagogues and homes of Jews.
There is a $50,500 reward for
information leading to an arrest
of the arsonist or arsonists. The
money was donated by the State
of Connecticut and by many
community organizations.
And now in the true spirit of
the partnership that has been de-
veloped between Jewish Federa-
tions and their "twin" Project
Renewal cities, the congregation
of Emanuel Synagogue received a
Torah from their twin city, Afula,
a city of 21,000 southeast of
Haifa that had its beginnings
in 1924 as a refugee village.
Later, like the neighborhoods of
Kfar Saba. the twinned Project
Renewal city of the Jewish Fed-
eration of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale, the city housed survivors of
the Holocaust and still later
Jewish immigrants from Asia
and Africa.
The presentation of the Torah
was made by the Mayor of Afula,
Ovadia Eli, at a ceremony Sun-
day Nov. 13 at the synagogue.
Susan Chira, in a special report to
The New York Times, wrote:
The congregation of the
Emanuel Synagogue rose as the
Mayor of Afula walked down the
aisle to the ark, holding the
Torah to his chest as he would a
child. The synagogue's rabbi
placed the 100-year-old scroll a
gift of the people of Afula to the
people of the Hartford area in
the ark.
The walls and floor of chapel
were still charred black and the
smell of smoke hung in the room,
but in the main sanctuary of the
synagogue there were tears of re-
birth and joy on the faces of
When the citizens of Afula
heard about the arson attacks,
they decided to give up one of
their Torahs, according to Mayor
Eli. Speaking through an inter-
preter, Marilyn Grant, who lives
in Afula and coordinates Project
Renewal, Mayor Eli said: "It was
a very traumatic thing for them.
They were very afraid for their
brothers and sisters in Hartford.
We're one family and one body,
and when there's a sore on the
arm or leg, the whole body
Facing the standing congrega-
tion after the Torah was placed in
the ark, the Mayor told them:
"The Torah was the greatest gift
any people ever received. As an
expression of love, or concern and
of true fellowship, we, your
family in Afula, present to you,
the people of Hartford, this
Torah. May we be bound ever
closer by it."
Emanuel's Rabbi Gerald Zeler-
myer said: "The matches were
aimed at the root of Judaism, the
Torah. But we have proven our
ability to take it (the arson
attacks). The people will live on,
will endure."

Recently Leon and his wife,
Goldie, sold their home and plan
to leave in a couple of months for
a new home in Israel.
And because they are making
aliyah, the men, who had been
worshipping together as Con-
gregation Migdal David, went
out and rented a storefront at
8575 W. McNab Rd to establish a
shul for their Orthodox syn-
agogue. They moved into the
shul with their three Torahs st
the end of October.
And they found a retired rabbi
nearby who agreed to volunteer
aa their spiritual leader. He is
Rabbi Cbaim Snyder who had
served congregations in The
Bronx for many years and was
chaplain at Riverdale. He and his
wife, Bernice, who had bean a
school teacher and principal in
Hebrew schools in the Bronx for
30 years, and the past six years
has been associated with New
York's Board of Jewish Educa-
tion, decided last December to
spend their winters in Tamarac.
Rabby Snyder, noting that
daily minyans at 8 in the
morning, with mincha at 5 p.m.
are held for Congregation Migdal
David, says that the morning
turnouts are very good, but,
sometimes there's a problem
getting a minyan for the 5 p.m.
service. He'll continue as the
Congregation's rabbi until April
when he and his wife go to a home
they have in the Catskills, where,
he say8, at a Young Israel syna-
gogue as many as 70 to 80 men
show up for morning and evening
The lack of members of Con-
gregation Migdal David is being
addressed by the officers who,
with other worshippers, are seek-
ing new members. The president
is Herman Fleischer. The vice
president is Charley Samp. The
treasurer is Ralph Weiss, who
called the move into a shul of
their own "a great step for our
congregation. We have been
saving and saving our money to
have this dream fulfilled."
Kerstein said the congregation
got its first Torah with the aid of
the Yeshiva University in New
York. He said he and his wife are
eagerly looking forward to living
in Israel where his wife has a sis-
ter, and where there are other rel-
atives. The Kersteins have three
sons, two in Brooklyn, one in
Richfield, Ct., "and, maybe, the
youngest may join us in Israel."

Ramat Shalom gets new Cantor
and services Shabbat mornings
Cantor Bella Bogart
Ramat Shalom, the Racons-
tructioniat Synagogue in
Plantation, announced Shabbat
morning services, in addition to
Kabbalat Shabbat services every
Friday night at 8:16 p.m. and the
appointment of Bella Bogart as
Mrs. Bogart, who studied
chazanut privately in keeping
with the ancient tradition of
cantorial training being passed
from generation to generation,
received her education at S.A.R.
Academy, Riverdale, N.Y., the
Joseph H. Lookstein Upper
School of Ramaz, New York City,
and Rutgers University.
She joined the congregation for
the High Holy Days services and
is now participating in all of the
congregation's Shabbat services
and other activities. She teaches
Bar-Bat Mitzvah lessons, and is
teaching Jewish music in Ramat
Shalom's Torah School. Cantor
Bogart accompanies herself on
the guitar and leads the congre-
gational singing.
Ramat Shalom's Rabbi Elliot
SkiddeU said the nhanomsnsl
growth of the congregation over
the last year since the congre-
gation moved into its new
building at 11301 W. Broward
Blvd. a year ago led to the
decision to offer Shabbat
morning services each Shabbat at
10 a.m., in addition to Friday
night services.
Rabbi Jeffrey L. Ballon
scheduled Dr. Friedlander's talk,
first of a series guest lectures to
be at the Temple, commemorat-
ing the 20th anniversary of the
assassination of President John
F. Kennedy. He said that the
speaker is the author of over 70
articles and review essays and
has authored a three-volume
study concerning international
terrorism. Dr. Friend lander has
also been called on as a guest
expert by Ted Koppel for ABC-
TV's Nightline program.
for Propaganda
Menken, a 46-year-old teacher at
the government-run navigation
school in Stade, Lower Saxony,
has been ordered dismissed for
disseminating anti-Semitic pro-
paganda in 1979.
Menken claimed that the gas
chambers were a lie and, in ar-
ticles in focal newspapers, ac-
cused Jews of preparing a plot to
annihilate the German people.
Government authorities in Lower
Saxony took no disciplinary mea-
sures against Menken until
forced to by public opinion.
When the matter was finally
brought to the court, the punish-
ment asked for was a 10 percent
cut in his salary for an 18-month
period. The panel of judge* or-
dered him fired. He may appeal.

television screen for watching
videotapes or a live broadcast;
there are stacks of books and
games which can be selected to
help pass the lonely hours. After
the gifts have been opened and
the coffee and donuts served,
pleasant conversation takes
place. The volunteers of A.W.S.I.
tell the soldiers how much the
people of the country and Jews
everywhere appreciate what they
are doing and how proud they are
of them. They also tell them how
aware they are of the difficulties

led for a ceasefire in northern

A Shaab and Al Fajr, the two
gest pro-PLO newspapers in
1 Jerusalem, condemned what
y called "Syrian-Libyan ag-
gression" in Tripoli. Another
major Arabic newspaper, the
conservative Al Kuds, compared
the attacks on Arafat to the
Sabra and Shatila refugee camps
massacre in September, 1982.
East Jerusalem was nearly total,
and several schools remained
closed. A strike in Nablus was
less successful. Israeli troops
intervened there to curb stone-
throwing youths. Stones also
flew at Beir Zeit University and
at the Daheishe refugee camp
near Bethlehem where the Israeli
authorities imposed a curfew.
Arab affairs experts contended
that the general strike in south
Lebanon was called by El Amal,
the Shiite Moslem organization.
Meanwhile, Israel kept a watch-
ful eye on both Syria which
mobilized its reserves yesterday
and Tripoli where Arafat is under
heavy Syrian artillery, mortar
and rocket fire. Haaretz reported
today that Egypt has plans to
evacuate Arafat by sea and give

their headquarters in Beirut and
were ferried to American troop
transports lying offshore. U.S.
sources said they were to be re-
patriated and replaced by a fresh
Marine contingent.
ISRAEL, for its part, has
taken no action likely to add to
the tensions in the region. Milit-
ary authorities insisted thata
call-up of reserves ordered

to test the efficiency of the mobil-

Premier Yitthak Shamir
referred to the Syrian uwbdiza-
lion during a tour of south Leb-
anon. Israel, he said, threatened
nobody, and nobody need fear Is-
rael unless they have 'hostile
designs on ua." Hs said that as
long as there waa danger to Israel
from Syria or PLO terrorieta, Is-
rael had no alternative but tore-
main in south Lebanon. Terrorist
operations against Israel would
only make the day of departure

Association for Welfare of
Soldiers in Israel helps in dozens
of ways to make the life of Is-
rael's brave, young soldiers a
little easier. More importantly, it
is the presence and link with
civilian life that shows the
soldiers that they are appreciated
and loved by the Jewish people
The Association, now consist-
ing of over 13,000 volunteers in
Israel and supported by Jews and
non-Jews around the world, was
created forty years ago. It began
its work when Jews, in what was
then Palestine, organized the
Jewish Brigade to fight the Nazis
alongside the British Forces.
Since then, the Association has
with the blessing of the govern-
ment of Israel provided the sup-
port system that helps sustain
the high morale and splendid
spirit that has been the hallmark
of the Israel Defence Forces.
Clubhouses, rest and recrea-
tion centers, books and gift
parcels, religious articles, low
coat hotels in cities, roadside
shelters and canteens are but
part of the vast program the As-
sociation finances and admin-
isters to benefit Israel's young
men and women while they serve
their country.
Recently, the Association
embarked on its largest project to
date; namely, to provide an
educational program specially
suited for those from the less
developed countries. Ground has
been broken in the Upper Galilee

for the Allon Educational Center.
Here, before bask training and
while they are in service, classes
will be held in basic skills such as
reading and writing, Jewish
history and the meaning of Israel
to the Jewish people. In addition,
those qualified will receive special
attention to prepare them for
entrance into the university
system. This latter program will
help close the social and cultural
gap that now exists in Israel. As
part of its world wide effort a
third of the funds for the first
building, estimated at nine
million dollars, has already been
achieved. Some of Israel's best
young instructors volunteered to
teach there with no compensa-
tion. The Association with this
project, exemplifies the care and
concern that has won the appre-
ciation of all those who have
served in the Israel Defence
