Hebrew Day School of Fort
Lauderdale serves the
Broward County area as the
source of outstanding
Jewish education.
The Hebrew Day School of Fort
Lauderdale, funded by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, is accredited by the
Association of Independent
Schools of Florida. It was founded
in 1974 by a group of concerned
parents seeking a superior
general studies program and
Judaic education with a strong
" I on Jewish identity.
The school is housed on the
Perlman campus of the Jewish
Community Center, 6501 W.
Sunrise Blvd., Plantation, and is
under the guidance of director,
Fran Mcrenstein, and assistant
director, Tema Friedman.
The Hebrew Day School creates
a world filled with knowledge and
concern for others. Preparing
children to be the leaders of
tomorrow is perpetuated through
individualized, innovative,
dynamic and creative efforts of
the Hebrew Day School
philosophic implementation. It is
here at this community day school
that each and every child does
work and achieves his/her fullest
potential. "Excellence in educa-
tion is the pursuit; the child at the
Hebrew Day School is the most
valuable commodity in thi3 educa-
tional process," stated Dr. Marc
Schwartz, school president and
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale board member.
Staff members of the Day
School are certified by the State
of Florida and are experienced
educators. Hebrew teachers are
licensed through the Central
Agency of Jewish Education.

puter techniques.
Israel Talks Peace ...
But Who is Listening
Some observers detect a contradiction in Israel's position on
peace negotiations. The Peres government says that it will go
anywhere and talk to anyone in pursuit of Middle East peace. At
the same time, it says that it will not negotiate with the PLO and
is intent on reminding the United States of its promise (codified in
law) not to do so either.
However, the Israeli position is not as contradictory as it may
seem. Shimon Peres genuinely wants to achieve a peace treaty
with Jordan. He wants to establish real autonomy for West Bank
Palestinians. And he wants to deepen Israel's relationship with
Egypt, even at the cost of compromise over the Taba border area.
No one who has examined Peres' career can doubt that he is
determined that his tenure as prime minister be remembered as
one of peace and security.

Carter Says Reagan Creates
'Christian Government'
Former President Jimmy Carter, speaking this month at a reu-
nion of more than 200 members of his administration, said Presi-
dent Reagan's alliance with politically active right wing religious
fundamentalists is an "obnoxious" attempt to create a "Christian
government."
Carter also criticized the Rev. Jerry Falwell's recent trip to
South Africa, after which Falwell urged his followers to
economically support South African President P.W. Botha in his
effort to counter what Falwell called communist anti-apartheid
demonstrators among the black majority in that country.
"He went down there to help Reagan, but I don't know if he
did," Carter said of Falwell.
The former president made the remarks from the wooden train
platform in this little south Georgia hamlet where he was born

Yom Kippur A Time for Commitment, Compassion & Renewal
>*A Ser^
By DR. ABRAHAM
J. GITTELSON
CAJ1 Director
of Education
Yom Kippur, the moat
acred day of the Jewish
year, highlights the sense of
awe, and anxiety as the Jew
feels his very life is on trial.
On one hand, deeply con-
scious of his vulnerability, the
individual intensifies his ef-
forts to undo the transgres-
sions of the past. At the same
time, love and forgiveness
come into play out of the acts
of reconciliation that emerge
during the season of the "Ten
Days of Repentance" bet-
ween Rosh Hashanah and
Yom Kippur. The link bet-
ween these two directions is
the human act of repentenee,
which, with God's grace, br-
ings renewed life.
The ultimate goal of the
period of the Days of Awe is
thus to encourage an ex-
amination of one's life, a
check-up' not only physically
or even psychologically, but
rather a spiritual heshbon
hancfeah.' an auuusntiag of
what one has been, and what
one could truly be. In a sense,
it is not physical infirmities
alone that threaten our life.
Rather the psychic numbing
that all human beings ex-
perience as they grow and
develop, the routinization of
life, the avoidance of respon-
sibility, both personal and
communal, the deadly
habituation that envelopes
daily living .. these are the
true enemies. Yom Kippur
charges us to re-examine our
lives, so that we never lose
the capacity to give unique
and meaningful responses to
life in all its demands snd
challenges.
In Jewish life, one does not
become overwhelmed by
psychic death, but the
routinization of sin, but
rather responds with renewal
and psychic rebirth. The pro-
cess of rebirth is thst of
repentenee, but it requires at-
tention, effort, communal
reinforcement and intense
concentration. It is to
enhance this process that
Yom Kippur requires us to
block out all possible occupa-
tion or distraction indeed.
even the very basic elements
of life food, water, sexuali-
ty are all suspended. In-
stead we enter into a pro-
found examination of our
lives, involving ourselves in
the three major steps of
repentenee, according to the
great Sage, Maimonides:
1. Recognition and confes-
sion of wrongdoing.
2. Regret and rejection of
that evil which one has done.
3. A commitment to a turn-
ing away, to a new life, to
new actions, to new life pat-
terns, that reflect authentici-
ty, commitment, concern,
compassion and continued
self-examination and spiritual
tension and growth.
Each element of the period
of the Ten Days of
Repentenee and the day of
Yom Kippur itself, combine
to reinforce the process of
Teshuvsh. repentenee. From
the stirring chanting of the
Kol Nidre prayer, through
the confessions of transgres-
sions, both persona] and com-
munal, through the Yiikor
service, the martyrology, and
finally the last climatic
moments prior to the soun-
ding of the shofar, when we
reaffirm our faith in the
Oneness Majesty and mercy
of the Almighty, Yom Kippur
represents the most intense
religious moments in our own
lives, and in the collective life
of the Jewish community.
As the Shofar sounds, en-
ding the fast, as we re-avow
our commitment to our
ancestral homeland with the
immortal words "Next year
in Jerusalem," it is proper
both to eat and drink, and to
begin the initial steps of
building the Sukkah for the
coming Sukkot festival of joy.
Here then again is the Jewish
dialectic from denial and
rejection of the physical for
intense concentration on the
spiritual, to reaffirmation of
all of life, in a framework of
fulfillment of commandments
so as to transform human ex-
istence into sacred, spiritual
living.
May we all be sealed in tht
book of life for a year el
health, blessing snd peace!

Members of the faculty hold or are
working toward advanced
degrees.
Limited class size makes possi-
ble a student-teacher ratio that
lends itself to the individualized
attention necessary to challenge
the student's development and in-
tellectual potential.
The three-year-old and four-
year-old Pre-Kindergarten pro-
grams enroll children who are
three and four years of age by
Dec. 31. This department is staff-
ed by degreed faculty and aides,
where necessary, to provide an
appropriate student-teacher ratio.
The program is developmental
and provides for the social and/or
learning needs of all children at
their own rate of development.
The first through fifth grade
levels meet with their regular
general studies and home room
teacher as well as with the
Hebrew teacher for formal in-
struction in Hebrew language and
Bible. Each group has a specified
time to cover all aspects of Judaic
studies. Emphasis is placed on
reading and math skills, and these
programs are individualized to
meet the needs of each child. In
addition, small group instruction
and discussion/exploration take
place in social studies and science.
A "hands'on" approach is
evidenced in the curriculum
implementation.
In the upper grades, a greater
emphasis is on academic and skill
performance. Individualized pro-
grams in language and math, as
well as special groupings in
Hebrew, provide for individual
needs of each child. The Hebrew
staff works with these groups to
structure a complete Judaic pro-
gram. Advances in social studies
and science are included in the
large group study units. The
children utilize innovative science
labs and materials at this level. At
all levels, a regular program of
music and physical education are
scheduled in the student's day.
We're Glad You Like it...
The recent changes made in the Jewish FLORIDIAN have pro-
duced some favorable comments, one of which we would like to
share with you.
Dear Mr. Telles,
I want to tell you how very much the last few copies of The
Jewish Floridian have improved.
I realize the importance of community news, pictures, etc., but
the placement and concentration allowing Newswire/Israel,
Florida and Washington, and Viewpoint as prominent features
seems to me to have made a big difference in the paper.
Many of my neighbors here at Water Bridge condominium want
you to know how much improved we find the newspaper.
Editor's note: These are excerpts of a letter written to Joel
TeUes, executive dir$etor, Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, by Bessie Rabinovitz of Sunrise. FL.
Carter Says

and where he has lived since leaving the White House in 1981.
'One of the most disturbing things about Reagan's administra-
tion, and there are many, has been his attempt to weld together
the right wing TV religious community with the Republican par-
ty," Carter said. "There's some doubt about who's captured
whom. ^
Carter said it was "obnoxious to me to see our governmend
defined as a Christian government. I think this is a direct viola-
Uon of our Constitutional principles and is a radical departure
from what all of Reagan's predecessors have stood for.
Israel Talks Peace ...
Con tinned from Page 1
That is why Peres and his government oppose U.S. dealings
with a PLO-dominated joint delegation. Jerusalem sees even if
Washington will not thst the purpose of Jordanian Palestinian
American talks is not to promote ultimate negotiations with
Israel but to avoid them. Their other purpose is to achieve U.S.
recognition of the PLO, or something very close to it.
Such recognition if it should come would end the peace pro-
cess rather than advance it. The PLO remains committed to the
destruction of Israel. Just the other day, Khalid al-Hassan, one of
Yasir Arafat's lieutenants, told a Kuwaiti newspaper that U.S.
recognition of the PLO, followed by the establishment of a West
Bank PLO state would only be "stages in a struggle." The "final
objective" remains the supplanting of all of IsraeTby a PLO state.
U.S. recognition of today's PLO would guarantee that no Palesti-
nian leadership committed to living with Israel ever emerges.
It is for that reason that the Israeli government remains ada-
mant in its refusal not to negotiate with the PLO. It cannot
negotiate with an organization which proclaims as its goal Israel's
destruction. Nor can it negotiate with people who, while talking
diplomacy, engage in terrorist attacks against children.
No definition of peace requires a nation to parley with those
dedicated to its destruction. That is why any contradiction bet-
ween Israel's pledge to talk to anyone in hopes of achieving peace
and its refusal to talk to the PLO is more apparent than it is
real. Israel seeks peace, but not the peace of the grave. Any Arab
leader who accepts as Anwar Sadat did and King Hussein
seems to Israel's right to live will find a willing negotiator in
Prime Minister Peres. As for the rest, they will continue to
achieve what thev have in 50 years of stalwart rejectionism. Ex
actly nothing. The decision is theirs.
In August, 1982, the Hebrew
Day School inaugurated their Mid-
dle School. The Middle School of-
fers a diversified, strong academic
program in a warm, caring en-
vironment to foster positive
growth during early adolescence.
In addition to the basic core sub-
jects, such as English, Math,
Science and Social Studies, the
course of study includes enrich-
ment areas in Spanish, Com-
puters, and Creative Thinking. A
full gamut of PE activities com-
plements the overall program.
The Judaic aspect of the
Hebrew Day School program dif-
ferentiates it from other fine
private school educations. The
Hebrew Language and a full pro-
gram of Judaic-Hebraic learning
experiences are integrated into
the general studies program.
Children gain deep insights into
the teachings of Judaism and
develop an appreciation of the
values and ideas expressed in the
modern and classical literature of
the Jewish people. A major em-
phasis is placed on Hebrew as it is
spoken in Israel, as well as on
Israeli culture and history. Special
emphasis is placed on Jewish
value, history, law and Israel.
Children are prepared for their
Bar-Bat Mitzvah and readily ad-
just to their individual Temple's
policies.

enrollment, the Hebrew Day

ISRAEL Legislation banning parties "that incite to racism
or negate Israel's democratic character or its existence as the
state of the Jewish people," was passed by the Knesset on a 66-0
vote. The move was aimed to stop Rabbi Meir Kahane's extremist
Kach Party.
JERUSALEM The presence of terrorist organizations in
Jordan, primarily that of Palestine Liberation Organization chief
Yasir Arafat's Fatah faction, was cited by Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin as one of the reasons for the increase in the terrorist
attacks in Israel and the administered territories.

Jerusalem has become the largest city in Israel with the largest
Jewish population, according to data released last month, an in-

Farrakhan Mocks Holocaust
Nation Of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan who recently returned
from a Middle East tour, attacked Jews and mocked the
Holocaust in rousing a crowd of close to 10,000 blacks jammed in-
side the District of Columbia's Convention Center in downtown
Washington.
In a column critical of Farrakhan and warning of his Hitlerian
tactics, Courtland Milloy, a black columnist for the Washington
Post reported, "Filled with hatred of Jews, Farrakhan makes his
audiences jump to their feet and applaud wildly when he says
things like 'Jews know their wickedness, not just Zionism, which
is an outgrowth of Jewish transgression.' His words are harsh,
and he even makes the audience laugh when he mocks the
Holocaust."
"And he does not stop there." Milloy added. I intend to
raise the ante tonight' Farrakhan told the crowd 'Black peo-
ple will not be controlled by Jews. Black leaders will either
come oat for as or get the hell away frost as.' He said that
black people were the 'chosen people, the people of G-d." "
Milloy reported that "all it took" to draw the crowd to the
Center, "were posters of Louis Farrakhan tacked onto trees and
telephone poles in the city's poorest neighborhoods." Milloy said
"people bolted from their seats as if struck by lighting" and caus-
ed the crowd to roar and jump to its feet by his statements.
"Unlike other practicing preachers and politicians today,"
Milloy said. "Farrakhan addresses boldly and bluntly a grow-
ing discontent and frustration in poor black neighborhoods.
Unfortanately, he is able to do this in much the same way that
Adolf Hitler was."
"Overall, his speech was filled with the kind of macho bravado
that makes oppressed people feel better about themselves, and he
talked of economic coalition bidding between Blacks, Hispanics,
Mexicans and Indians. But as he neared the end of his two-hour
speech, it was clear that he had not charted an economic course
for his followers short of buying video tapes of his speeches and
tubes of POWER toothpaste and deodorant.
"Yet Farrakhan remains a force in many sections of this and
other cities," Milloy concluded. "But this force can only be
destructive in long run not only for Farrakhan, but especially
his followers who have failed to learn the bitter lessons of hate
that came out of Nazi Germany a half When Milloy was complimented by a white telephone caller for
his writing, he noted that was the first call he had received with
thanks for him. Numerous other callers were "negative," he said,
and there were "threats" against him. Farrakhan had threatened
Washington Post reporter Milton Coleman two years ago when
Coleman, who is black, had reported Farrakhan's vituperative
remarks. The Rev. Jesse Jackson rejected Farrakhan's remarks
but did not disassociate Farrakhan from his presidential
campaign.
The Washington Post 'a news report on the Farrakhan speech
did not mention Jews but said of Philadelphia Mayor W. Wilson
Goode in relation to the police assault on the back-to-nature anar-
chist group MOVE headquarters in Philadelphia:
"A power-crazy mayor and a chief of police dropped a bomb
oa Mack people Whenever you pat a black man in office
and be betrays the best interest of the people who pat him
there, take aha oat. aad if he does not repeat... we will tar
aad feather them, hang them by a limb, chop off their beads."
The Washington Pot editorially said "Call it religious freedom,
but Louis Farrakhan is into bigtime bigotry for the masses and
too many people who know better are looking the other way "
Pointing to his "garbage" and "his stream of vicious anti-Semitic
comments and his attacks against any and all leaders of blacks
who might challenge his disgusting sermons," the editorial added
"and judging from the sounds of silence in too many corners
Minister Farrakhan's preachings of hatred are effective.'
"Where are the responsible and respected leaders who can
recognize a HiUer in any color, who can be most effective in call
ing bigotry when they hear it? the Pott asked.
Another Wmshington Pott columnist. Richard Cohen, said
"the true tragedy of Farrakhan is that he is a digression. He
has no program to make life better for ghetto dwellers. They
are hardly poor because of something Jews have deae aad the
crisis in the Middle East has nothing to do with the Job situa-
tion in the United States. Zionism is hardly an outgrowth of
Jewish transgression." as Farrakhan says, bat evea if Israel
were to disappear tomorrow. Harlem would still be s slam aad
poor black teen-age girls woald still be having babies. The
sacrifice of the scapegoat solves nothing.
On his Middle East trip, Farrakhan met with some of the
region's radical Arabs, including Libyan dictator Col. Muammar
Qadaffi, from whom reportedly Farrakhan had received an
interest-free loan of $5 million. He is reported as using the money
in a corporation called People Organized for Economic Rebirth
Power. The organization, Farrakhan has been repored saying,
will make household products such as soap and deodorants to be
sold to black consumers. The Post a news report quoted him say-
ing "Can you see yourself saying I feel strong because under my
arm I got POWER? Then we can buy farm land to feed
ourselves." He led the crowd in the chant: "We've got power, at
last forever.' We'vegot power, at last forever!"
Jewish men, women and
children throughout Greater Fort
Lauderdale will join with scores of
their brethren worldwide to
observe Yom Kippur, the holiest
day in the Jewish calendar next
Wednesday. Sept 25.
During this special time of
prayer, meditation and fasting,
we look back in the history of the
Jewish people at this special time
and remember some of the ordeals
faced on the Day of Atonement

to the U.N..
1973.)
. It was this day. the Day of
Atonement that the Nazis used to
select for massacres of Jews. It
was on this Day of Judgment in
1941 that the Nazi SS squads
brought 90,000 Jewish men.
women and children to Babi Yar,
in the suburbs of Kiev, made them
dig mass graves, and then mer-
cilessly mowed them down with
machine guns. It was on this day
of fast and prayer that they used
to surround synagogues and but-
cher all the worshippers in them.
It was on Yom Kippur of 1942
that Nazi military forces attacked
and slaughtered the Jewish men,
women and children assembled
for prayer in the synagogues of
Warsaw and Bialystok. In 1943, it
was on the Day of Atonement that
they did the same in the ghettos of
Vilna and Lublin.
Those who have watched and
studied the attitude of the Arab
leaders toward the Jewish people
and its rights know that it was in a
similar spirit of fanatical hatred
that Egypt and Syria attacked
Israel on the Day of Atonement
1973. Like the Nazis, the too
thought we would be caught
unaware on such a day, unable to
defend ourselves.
They were wrong."
Yom Kippur at the Viet Front
(Tan Son Nhut, Viet Nam,
September 24, 1966).
. The destinies of more than
two thousands Jewish soldiers
were sealed in the Book of Life
tonight as twilight over Viet Nam
ushered in the holiest day of the
Jewish year.
Yom Kippur, the day of Atone-
ment was celebrated here by over
five hundred soldiers arriving
from jungle war zones by
helicopter, by truck convoy, by
hook or crook.
The men's faces were somber as
they stacked their M-16 rifles in
the pews of Tan Son Nhut chapel
and donned prayer shawls. They
came in sweat-soaked fatiques and
mud-splattered boots. Many
brought their war wounds with
them and had trouble fitting their
skullcaps on heads already
covered with gauze.
Capt. Alan Greenspan, one of
three Jewish chaplains in Viet
Nam, cradled in his arms a
photostatic-copy Torah, part of a
collapsible Army-issue synagogue
kit which he regularly carries to
the field for frontline Sabbaths.
The white skullcaps were in
short supply because of the unex-
pected number of worshippers ar-
riving earlier in the day. and local
seamstresses were hastily sum-
moned to sew together new ones.
Two men were killed by sniper
fire in the cargo plane that
brought Sp/4 Robert Freshman to
this "Sabbath of Sabbaths." It
took ten hours for PFC Yoram
Stein to make his way down from
Cu Chi on a mine sweeper convoy.
Some of the men. like PFC
Mark Scott and PFC Rubin
Fidler. brought with them their
religious anxieties over the war.
"Biblically," Greenspan told
them, "men of G-d fought wan.
Moses was not only a man of
peace, he had to fight battles."
"Why are we here? asked Stein.
"A Jew in Viet Nam is what he
has always been," said the rabbi,
"a fighter and a champion of the
rights of man."
"Whose side is G-d on?"
"G-d judges all mankind," said
Greenspan. "We feel that G-d's on
our side and I believe it"
The men went inside and bowed
their heads for the Kol Nidre sup-
plication by Cantor Nathaniel Ber-
man, a twenty-one-year-old PFC.
"Hear, O Israel," he intoned in
Hebrew. He hesitated until the
earsplitting roar of a fighter jet
droned over the horizon, "the
Lord our G-d, the Lord is One."
The men began their fast. It will
end at sundown tomorrow with
bagels and salami provided by the
National Jewish Welfare Board.
In the morning, they will weep at
Yizkor, the memorial prayer for
the souls of Jewish soldiers who
have fallen in the war. They will
beat their chests as a sign of con-
fession and tomorrow at sundown,
as a ram's horn sounds a solitary
note over the bleak runways and
quonset hut sof Tan Son Nhut, the
celestial book of accounts will
close.

Precious Jewish Souls
By RABBI
RALPH P. KINGSLEY
It is erev Shabbat in Leningrad, and we Jeffrey Ballon anil
myself, two American rabbis are on our way to meet a family aS
refuseniks. We walk up several flights of stairs and knock on al
door that has a mezuzza on its doorpost A voice answers froal
within, and we say: "Shabbat Shalom. We are friends froal
America."
The door opens, and we are welcomed by a woman in a bathropel
and escorted into the small living room-dining room which hail
already been converted into a bedroom. Two Shabbat canccal
flicker on the small table.
Daniel Fradkin remains in bed. It is 13 years since he and Sara
have been refused permission to leave, and he is depressed. Yetj
he eagerly shows us a book with the names of those who haw]
visited him over the past 13 years, and he expresses the longing]
for more visitors. Sara soon returns, having put on her Shabbat
dress, and brings out sweet cherries and wine. We are made to
feel very much at home.
Now four Jews sit and talk about life in Russia and about Jewish
hopes and dreams, especially the yearning to be reunited with
grandchildren who Hve far away. Suddenly, the lights go out We.
the visitors from America, jump. Is it the KGB? No. It is only the
Sabbath timer, which has shut the lights off automatically. Now
the conversation continues by the light of the two Shabbat]
candles. Soon one of them goes out as well, and now four Jewish |
souls converse by the light of only one flickering Shabbat candle
The symbolism is awesome. The light that burns so dimly
reminds us that Soviet Jews are reduced to the light of a single
candle that struggles to stay lit They look to the Jews of Israel
and the Diaspora to help keep the flame alive, even as they look to
the God of Israel for the light of redemption. How will we
respond?

The
Beginning
Of Change
By RABBI
PAUL PLOTKIN
Temple Beth Am, Margate
i life in America may be compared to a pendulum. At
Iprings to the right, at times it swings to the left. Its arc
It to the extremes, but spends most of its time in the range
Cuddle. There have been times when Jews in America
Ifjvored traditionalism. There were times when liberalism
iwere very much in the vanguard of Jewish expression.
rlier swing, in a time of greater liberalism, there was a
nt, informal as it was, that tried to do away with the con-
n! Psychiatry was all the rage and sin was perceived as
_jbad, unhealthy. Indeed, if it were not for the concept of
find then that of the ensuing guilt, many argued that the
[health of so many would be better. As the pendulum
i that direction, society showed what it was capable of
' 1 no longer be used as a tool of restraint.
_j destruction of sexual mores, the breakdown of the
[the rising incidences of alcoholism and drug use in the
[community are but some of the examples; but, the pen-
i swinging in the other direction today. There is a greater
traditional values, for the need to put the family and
tion of marriage back together again and for a sense of
t and discipline in our lives. So it is that, as we approach
i Kippur of 5746, once again we can look at the concept of
ut flinching, without apologies. Look at it as it has
i used in the Jewish tradition.
t is a story in the Talmud of Eliezer Ben Durdaya. He was
J that lead an exceedingly dissolate life. Eventually, he
|te redeem himself and he changed his mode of living, but
loot where to turn. So, he cried out to the mountains and
"Mountains and hills plead for me," but they refused. He
I the heavens and he cried, "Heaven and earth, sun and
I for me," but they too refused. Finally in desperation,
"Stars and constellations plead for me" and again his
I refused.
;ht and then sadly concluded, "It all depends on me."
sson of Yom Kippur, the first step in the process of
i and eventual atonement is the recognition and the
subsequent confeasional that we are and have been guilty of a par-
tner sin It is easy to blame one's shortcomings on the moun-
tain, one has to ascend. We rationalize that in thl struggle to
Vl i. our KoaJ. friends are often elbowed out of thTway,
vaiues can be compromised, ideals tarnished and we use our en-
vironment, or heaven and earth and everything around, as conve-
nient scapegoats for our own shortcomings.
"If only we had grown up in a better neighborhood, attended
netter schools, had more (or sometimes less) affluent parents,
now different our lives could have been. How many have faced
laiiure and rather than admit their inadequacies, have reached
out at the amorphous sense of fate, and say "asii bashert," It was
preordamed, that failure would stalk me. Yom Kippur recognizes
ooui the fact that sins are committed by people, by individuals,
out also by communities and that the first step in the process of
oeing atoned is to recognize, to identify the sins, to see thorn as
tailures and to resolve, to change them in the future. For indeed
to merely recognize them and not act upon them is to turn Yom
Kippur into a superficial and hollow act, a gesture, where serious
change was required.
In our young and growing community of North Broward, there
are many communal sins that we must look at and resolve to
change in this coming year. There is the sin of abandonment of
elders, of the loneliness that permeates when children live up
North and aging and elderly parents are made to suffer the
agonies of long illnesses and hospitalizations and rehabilitation
centers, detached from any nurturing or personally caring family
and friends. There is the sin of the mass numbers of unaffiliated
young Jewish families whose children are being raised without
any form of adequate religious education; whose sum knowledge
and practice of Judaism is merely the label "I am a Jew" with no
further action or knowledge to back up the statement.
There is the sin of literally tens of thousands of Jews enjoying a
degree of comfort, affluence and leisure only dreamed of in
earlier years, turning their back entirely on synagogues, on the
local Jewish community and the land of Israel. There is the sin of
fraudulent retailers advertising the Kosher acceptability of their
products while violating Sabbath and in some cases, even the fun-
damental dietary laws, and the concomitant sin of a large popula-
tion of unsophisticated laymen prepared to accept the fraudulent
presentation and the uncivil abuse of some of the merchandisers
all in pursuit of a bargain of pennies. The sin of thousands who
leave on vacations all around the world and have yet to take their
first step on the Holy Land of Israel and make a pilgrimage to
Jerusalem. There is the sin of individual and organizational
egotism that sometimes causes expensive duplication of facilities
and services, using up the limited resources of the Jewish com-
munity to pursue individual agendas rather than pooling for the
common good. The list is endless and indeed it may make for ex-
cellent pre-Yom Kippur exercise for everyone to make up their
own list and then to resolve to work one at a time at changing
each and every sin. For only in such a manner is Atonement
assured both for the individual and for the community.
May this year be the beginning of change for individual in-
trospection and for communal self-examination so that the Holy
One, Blessed Be He, will see fit to judge each of us individually
and our community collectively, for the good, so that ours may be
a 'signed and sealed inscription' for another year of life, health,
happiness, peace for all of Israel and all of the world. Amen.

Summer Brings Happy Times to Seniors
With summer gone and
the fall months upon us,
some lucky participants of
Federation-supported
Kosher Nutrition program
can look back with a smile.
There were some rare
moments this past summer when
the not-so-young of the Nutrition
program were entertained by the
very young of the Jewish Com-
munity Center Day Camp.
Hollie Berger, JCC
Music/Drama specialist, assisted
by camp counselor Barrte Tessler,
instructed a group of third grade
girls in song and good cheer.
"The girls brought the energy
and enthusiasm of both Hebrew
and English camp songs and
brightened up the morning of the
bubbes and teydes," stated
Federation director of Elderly
Services, Sandy Friedland. "Hugs
and kisses were exchanged as the
youngsters walked around the

Even though a public high
school sets aside a free
period for student activities,
it does not become a "public
forum" that must extend
school facilities and
privileges to student
religious clubs, says a brief
signed by three national
organizations and a member
of Congress.
An arruci, or friends-of-the-
court, brief submitted to the U.S.
Supreme Court in the case of
Bender v. Williamsport (Penn-
sylvania) Area School District,
argues that the free speech provi-
sion of the First Amendment does
not entitle high school students to
form such religious clubs.
The document was submitted by
the American Jewish Congress on
behalf of itself and the National
Jewish Community Relations Ad-
visory Council, the Committee for
Public Education and Rebgious
Liberty, and U.S. Rap. Don Ed-
wards (Dem.. Calif.).
The briefs argues that even if
students are found to have free
speech rights, these rights are
outweighed by the Constitutional
prohibition against pubbc school
entanglement with rehgioa
"Local school officials practice
content-based discrimination
every day without violating the
First Amendment." says the
brief. 'They decide which subjects
are appropriate for the educa-

some 20 Rabbis, Educators, Can-
tors and knowledgeable laymen
who meet bi-weekly at the Jewish

contact Rabbi Kaplan at 741-0295.
twn s Director of Chaplaincy Ser-
vices and a charter member of the
RXoup, noted that "The joy of
I orah study is a supreme value in
Jewish life. The existence of such
a group m our community is visi-
ble evidence of the constantly in
creasing quality of Jewish life and
Jewish learning."
Mystical allusions in the text,
grammatical explanations, tradi-
tional and modem commentaries
historical analysis, contemporary
ethical ideals ... ail are part of
the interpretations that flow out
of the passionate religious poetry
that comprises the Book of
Psalms.
Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson, CA-
JE director of Education, in-
dicated that the first text of the
year to be studied is the 27th
chapter of Psalms. "This is a most
appropriate selection because it is
this very chapter that is recited
each morning and evening in the
synagogue service during the pre-
sent Hebrew month proceeding
Rosh Hashana. It is a psalm of
profound faith and thanks to God
for past sustenance, and a plea for
compassion and mercy in the
future. These are exactly the feel-
ings that are to be engendered as
we approach the High Holidays."
Leader of the first season was
Rabbi Menachem Raab, director
of the day school department of
CAJE. He was ordained and
received his doctorate in Judaica
from Yeshiva University.
Gittelson noted that this would
be the third year that Rabbi Raab
has led the opening session of the
group. "When someone does
something in Jewish life for three
consecutive times he has the right
to continue doing it permanently.
We would be delighted if Rabbi
Raab exercised this privilege,
since there are 150 chapters in the
Book of Psalms and we hope that
our group will finish them all in
the years ahead."
During the past year there was
so much interest in Judaic study
that a second group was organiz-
ed, meeting directly after the
Chug Tanach. This second group,
the Chug Talmud, studies one of
the tractates of the Babylonian
Talmud, Megillah. This work deals
with the laws and concepts of the
holiday of Purim, but like almost
every tractate of the Talmud, in-
cludes elements of Jewish
philosophy, ethics, history, folk
lore and legal matters relating to
a host of other subject areas.
Rabbi Albert Schwartz serves
as the mainleader of this session,
with members of the group, as in
the Chug Tanach, preparing the
selected portions prior to each ses-
sion, so as to engage in the time-
honored Talmudic style of dialec-
tical study.
The Bible group was modeled on
the World Jewish Bible Society
that was founded by David Ben
Gurion, the first Prune Minister of
the State of Israel, and a life long
student of the Bible. The main
group of the Society still meets
weekly on Saturday evenings in
the home of either the Prime
Minister of President of the State
of Israel.
Individuals in the community
who possess a wide knowledge of
Bible and Talmud are invited to
join the groups, which meet bi-
weekly at the Jewish Federation
from 9:15 to 10:45 am. for the Bi-
ble class, and from 10:45 a.m.-12
noon for the Talmud study. The
next meeting is Monday, Sept. 23.

NEW YORK Roald Zelichonok, a 49-year-old Hebrew
teacher from Leningrad who has sought to emigrate to Israel
since 1979, has been sentenced to three years in a labor camp on
charges of allegedly "defaming the Soviet state and social
system," it was reported by the National Conference on Soviet
Jewry.
MINNEAPOLIS Reform rabbis were urged at their 96th an-
nual convention by a leading Conservative rabbi to drop their plan
on recognizing both the mother and father in a mixed marriage as
parents of a Jewish child. The rabbis were asked to return to the
traditional Jewish position accepted by Orthodox and Conser-

mother is Jewish.

Playing Hide and
Seek with Cholesterol
It's ft good sen thftt more hefttth-ooaaaoos people are ftwre of
the danger! lasorialart with foods high in sugar, salt, fats and,
perhapa the moat dangerous of all. cholesterol. Moat of aa know,
for instance, that such foods aa egga, red meats and shellfish
carry high amis of the latter, considered by many the leading
cause of heart disease in America today.
Surprisingry. howerer. other sources of nutrition long bahevad
to be low in ihcleetirril content actually rank high on the culprit
at
Included are such favorites aa sardines, mackareJ. chicken,
turkey and haddock. Even that innocent cup of ice cream wears a
different face on the cholesterol nst, ranking ISth on the All-
Worst" chart-
According to 7V Runner magazine, those winking to cat back
on their cholesterol intake should avoid, first and foremost, beef
liver. In fact, three ounces of bver carry 372 milligrams of
cholesterol, or 72 milligrams more than one should ingest per day.
Beef Kver is followed by the ominous egg (274 milligrams), sar-
dines, mackerel, veal. lamb, hamburger, pork, lean beef, chicken,
lobster, turkey, ice cram, hot dog and haddock.
Nancy Clark. MD, and author of the magazine article notes
that, unlike fat. cholesterol is not burned for energy Rather, it is
a part of the cell walls in amin&l foods, such as those mentioned
above.
"Your body makes cholesterol and some experts claim that the
cholesterol you eat influences the amount of cholesterol in your
Mood." she explains, "all medical professionals have clearly con-
firmed that people with a high blood cholesterol do have a
significantly higher risk of developing heart diaeaet "
Although running can increase your level of HDL cholesterol
(the "good" cholesterol that helps transport the LDL or "bad"
cholesterol out of your body). Clark claims exercise also tends to
increase the hungry runners intake of unhealthy foods.
Research with racing cychata on a high-fat diet showed that
they still had high blood cholesterol levels desite their rigorous ex-
erase program." she says. "When they ate low fat. healthy foods,
tnesr caaseaterol levels diupped.
Tha sttdy eiaphaerar* that even though exercise is good for
your health, it doesn't override what you eat"
Plijina, mde-andsaek with cholesterol can be a frightening,
even lethal game. Better, then, to know the facts before the
tag-son;

prior to the 1970 Jordanian-
Palestinian civil war. That
war was provoked by the
PLO's creation of a state-
within-a-state in Jordan, a
"state" from which the PLO
launched raids and fired
missiles against Israel. It
was a situation that was in-
tolerable for both Israel and
Jordan.
Israel would be no more
amenable to it today. Rabin
has done Jordan a favor by
letting Amman know early
that it will not sit back and
allow the PLO to operate
out of Jordan. "The Jorda-
nian government," he says,
"had better understand the
significance of granting
these terrorists ... such
freedom of action. It had
better realize this before
things get to such a point
that Israel will no longer be
able to stand idly by.'7
Let's hope that King Hus-
sein is listening.

nlLnH0bae kshi?nd of Sukkot symbols or fruit makes a hand
some decoration for your sukkah or living room.
A special container for the etrog is nice to have. Boxes made for
mis purpose range from simple inexpensive items to beautiful
creations of great artistry. With a little searching and imagina-
tion, you might find an old silver candy box, sugar container or
jewelry case which can be converted to an etrog box and suitably
engraved. Making an etrog box out of wood, basketry or metal
could be a children's craft project.
You may wonder what to do with the etrog after the holiday If
you can accumulate enough etrogim from your friends, you can
make an exotic jam or preserve. If not, put your own among your
linens; like lavender, it gives a pleasant aroma that lingers for
months.
Use short candles in the sukkah so that they will burn out by the
time the evening meal is over. Long candles could be a fire
hazard.
If your husband is honored with hatan torak or katan bereskit,
arrange a small kiddush for the congregation to show your
appreciation.
You might start a "tour of Sukkot" in your community.
Suggest to your Sisterhood, or other women's organizations,
that it sponsor a contest for the most attractive miniature sukkah
or table centerpiece. Tinkertoys, Minibricks or toy logs form
suitable materials for these.
If you live in an apartment house, join with a group of other
tenants in asking the landlord's permission to build a sukkah on
the roof.
Sukkot
If you've ever wistfully con-
sidered contracting a sukkah if
not now, when? A sukkah can be
built almost anywhere from
almost anything. Tradition says
our ancestors built booths in the
desert during the Exodus, in
fields of the land of Israel while
harvesting their crops. Loyal to
that ancient memory, our great-
grandparents built them on
Lower East Side tenement roofs.
We build them on suburban patios
and high-rise terraces. Wherever
we dwell or dine in them we can
peer through leafy tckaek at the
stars flickering above, shiver a lit-
tle in October gusts, and ap-
preciate all the more our year-
round homes.
The sukkah can be a minimal
shelter of four, three, or two-and-
a-little-bit-more walls. Using one
or two existing walls will make
the sukkah easier and less expen-
sive to build. No elegant edifice
' complex required. You can use old
doors, scrap lumber, burlap hung
on a wooden frame. If you're
pressed for time or think ham-
mers are dangerous, you can buy a
prefabricated sukkah. Whatever
the construction of your sukkah,
the final touch will be the
decorating, which should be a
family affair. Use fall fruits and
vegetables, children's drawings,
holiday cards, and whatever else
you can think of to add beauty to
your temporary shelter. Then in-
vite and enjoy.

Some Pointers for Jerry Falwell
By ANDREW HEISKELL
Since he burst onto the national scene almost 10 years ago. the
Rev. Jerry Falwell has been burdened with a reputation for in-
tolerance. Whether discussing theology or ideology. Rev Falwell
has given the impression that he believes that oanr his religious
and political views have God's approval and all other view-
points are evil.
Now. Rev. Falwell is trying to shack off his reputation for in-
tolerance, but many Americans are still doubtful of las adteriti.
If he really wants to peisaade people of other faiths and view-
points that he genuinely respects their right*, here are three am-
ple things we can do:
1 Recognise that America belongs to everyone: Rev Falwell
took a gnat step toward affvuaag the American tradition of
rebgious tolerance when at recently repodaated las fnoaantfr

Rabin Warns Jordan
About PLO Terrorists
Israel's Minister of
Defense Yitzhak Rabin has
warned Jordan against
allowing PLO terrorists to
operate out of its territory.
Speaking in Jerusalem,
Rabin said that "every week
we see more and more ter-
rorist elements primarily
belonging to Arafat's Fatah
arriving in Jordan, enjoy-
ing hospitality and the
freedom to plant, initiate,
and issue orders to terrorist
forces wherever they are."
He noted that "so far" Jor-
dan has not allowed the ter-
rorists to set up unsupervis-
ed bases and said that he
hoped that would remain
the case. "However," he
said, "one cannot overlook
the fact that the presence of
the commands there has
created a new reality in

Community Relations Committee Serves North Broward
h^&rwc
When you have a
question or a problem
which concerns you as a
member of the Jewish
community, where do
you go? who do you call?
One option you may not
be aware of, but should
be, is the Community
Relations Committee of
the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort
Lauderdale.
Richard C. Entin,
chairman of the Com-
munity Relations Com-
mittee (CRC), describes
the CRC as the "voice
of the organized Jewish
Community in North
Broward County. "Our
membership includes
representation from
various local Jewish
organizations," says En-
tin, "and so the CRC
reflects the combined ef-
forts of the major
resources within the
Jewish community. This
exchange of knowledge
and opinions gives us
our strength."
The security of Israel
is of paramount concern
to American Jews and
therefore a major focus
of te CRC lies in its ef-
forts to interpret
Israel's position and
needs to the American
public and government.
The CRC supports
Israel, not only as a
Jewish State, but as the
United States* only
politically stable and
militarily effective ally
in the Middle East. The
CRC opposes the sale of
American weapons to
Arab States that remain
in a state of war with
Israel, and seeks to
educate the American
public and government
about the risks of such
arms sales, and about
the mutual interests of
Israel and the United
States and the values
and democratic pro-
Richard Entin
cesses the two countries
share.
The CRC sponsors
local educational and
community awareness
programming. An ongo-
ing priority of the CRC
is the Cult Awareness
Program, designed to
address the serious pro-
blem of cults and mis-
sionary groups. The
CRC has distributed its
brochure, "It's An Offer
You'd Better Refuse"
and sponsored programs
at schools, youth groups,
synagogues and Jewish
Organizations. "In
cooperation with other
Jewish agencies, the
CRC sponsors educa-
tional programs in the
community to promote
awareness of the pro-
blem and to teach
Jewish youth to
recognize and resist cult
recruiters," says Entin.
In May 1982, a Cult
Awareness Week-End
was co-sponsored by the
CRC, and plans are be-
ing made for another
community-wide Cult
Awareness program for
the coming year.
Entin sees anti-
Semitism and Jewish
safety and security as
crucial concerns, and
feels that the CRC must
monitor and condemn
anti-Semitism and all
forms of bigotry and
racial violence.

ed to the youngsters through the
fence which had barbed wire along
the top. (One must still be cautious
in Israel). One of the little boys
started to climb the fence and slip-
ped and cut himself, but he didn't
whimper, flinch or cry. A
therapist explained to me that his
behavior is typical of youngsters
with sensory problems. His lip
was bleeding and he didn't even
fed it. It depressed me to view
these youngsters but it also en-
couraged me to know that pro-
gress had been made.
It is our responsibility as Jews
to reach out to these Jews in the
forgotten areas. They need our
support in every wsy. Although
numerous new facilities have been
build, such as a senior center,
many more sre still needed. Staff
is needed to run the clinics,
classrooms and expanding social
programs. They need supplies and
materials for use in these
facilities. They need to actually
see and meet each and every one
of you when you visit Israel. That
is the most exciting and unique
concept about Project Renewal.
We are "twinned" with com
munities that work "hand-in-
hand" as opposed to just "handing
out."
One of the things that I am most
proud of is the Kfar Saba Band.
The band is a direct result of the
dedication and thoughtfulness of
our Greater Fort Lauderale area
residents who have donated in-
struments to these youngsters.

Community Relations Committee
Coatiaaed fro* Page 1
When you have a question or a
problem which concerns you as a
member of the Jewish community,
where do you go? Who do you call?
One option you may not be aware
of, but should be, is the Communi-
ty Relations Committee of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale.
Richard C. En tin. chairman of
the Community Relations Com-
mittee (CRC), describes the CRC
as the "voice" of the organized
Jewish Community in North
Broward County. "Our member-
ship includes representation from
various local Jewish organiza-
tions." says Entin. "and so the
CRC reflects the combined efforts
of the major resources within the
Jewish community. This exchange
of knowledge and opinions gives
us our strength."
The security of Israel is of para-
mount concern to American Jews
and therefore a major focus of te
CRC lies in its efforts to interpret
Israel's position and needs to the
American public and government.
The CRC supports Israel, not only
as a Jewish State, but as the
United States' only politically
stable and militarily effective allv
ia the Middle East! The CRC op^
poses the sale of American
weapons to Arab States that re-
main in a state of war with Israel,
and seeks to educate the
American public and government
about the risks of such arms sales,
and about the mutual interests of
Israel and the United States and
the values and democratic pro-
cesses the two countries share.
The CRC sponsors local educa-
tional and community awareness
programming An ongoing priori-
ty of the CRC is the Cult
Awareness Progranvdesigned :
address the serious problem of
cults and missionary- groups The
CRC has distributed its brochure.
Its An Offer You'd Better
Refuse" and sponsored programs
a: schools, youth groups,
synagogues and Jewish Organiza-
tions, in cooperation with other
Jewish agencies, the CRC spon
sors educational programs in the
community to promote awareness
of the problem and to teach
Jewish youth to recognize and
resist cult recruiters," says Entin.
In May 1982. a Cult Awareness
Week-End was co-sponsored by
the CRC. and plans are being
made for another community-
wide Cult Awareness program for
the coming year.
Entan sees anti-Semitism and
Jewish safety and security as
crucial concerns, and feels that
the CRC must monitor and con-
demn anti-Semitism and all forms
of bigotry and racial violence.
On Nov. 27. 1984. the CRC
sponsored a Security Conference,
at which representatives from
local synagogues. Jewish
organizations, the Hebrew Day
School and the Jewish Community
Center met with Arthur
Teitelbaum. director of the
Florida Regional Office of the
Anti-Defamation League, and
Sgt. James Walkup of the
Broward County Sheriffs Office
Bomb Squad, to deal with threats
to institutional security
It is a goal of the CRC to
facilitate positive relationships
with the non-Jewish and black
communities.
On Dec 11. the CRC of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale and the CRC of
the Jewish Federation of South
Broward will be co-sponsoring a
program on the status of black-
Jewish relations
Last year the CRC co-sponeored
the annual Yom HaShoa Program
for Holocaust Remembrance, held
" AprjKlT This pregii was"
very weH attended, and this year *
the CRC plans to once again co-
sponsor the Yom HaShoa Pro-
gram The CRC is committed to
keeping the memory of the
Holocaust alive and to promoting
Holocaust education. According

The Community Relations Com-
mittee of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale gears its
efforts to the needs and concerns
of the Jewish Community of
North Broward County. "The
CRC develops a program of
education and social action on
behalf of the Jewish Community."
says Richard Entin. CRC chair-
man, if you have questions or
problems contact the CRC. If
you have been confronted with
religious discrimination, if your
children have been approached by
cult recruiters, if your children
have problems concerning
absence from school on Jewish

part in South Broward have tried
for several years to promote a
Holocaust education prgram for
teachers in the Broward County
school system, with no success.
This year, in cooperation with
the Broward County School
Board, the Southeast Florida
Holocaust Memorial Center and
the Central Agency for Jewish
Education, the Community Rela-
tions Committees of the Jewish
Federations of Greater Fort
Lauderdale and South Broward
will co-sponsor a day-long in-
service training program for
Broward County's High School
Social Studies teachers on Jan. 31.
1986. This program is designed to
instill an understanding of why it
is important to teach all students
about the Holocaust, and to pro-
vide the curriculum and resources
for teachers to effectively teach
the Holocaust in their classes.
The CRC is active on behalf of
Soviet Jewry through a number of
programs. Letter-writing cam-
paigns to American and Soviet of-
ficials are organized in support of
Refuseniks and prisoners of cons-
cience. Each year a national
Human Rights Plea for Soviet
Jewry is organized on a local level,
and the CRC assists in planning
the program, which takes place in
December. The CRC also sponsors
a Twinning Program, through
which local youngsters
celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah
are "twinned" with a Soviet child
who is not free to celebrate their
own Bar or Bat Mitzvah. The
Soviet child participates in absen-
tia with their American counter-
part, providing a vivid lesson that
Soviet Jews are denied the basic
freedoms we enjoy here in the
lofted States. So farin 1985 the
CRC has twinned over 60 local
youngsters, and 23 twinning ap-
plications have already been
received for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs
to be held in 1986.

Spain Will Establish
Formal Diplomatic
Ties with Israel
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Spain _
ed that it will establish formal
diplomatic relations with Israel
before autumn 1986. Spanish
Foreign Minister Francesco Fer
nandez Ordonez said that Spain's
formal recognition "will be ex-
tended within one year, at the
most." Ordonez was answering
questions during an interview
with a private radio station in
Madrid, "Radio Cope."
The minister, who according to
diplomatic sources in Madrid was
speaking with the backing of
Premier Felipe Gonzalez, said
that Spain's formal entry into the
European Economic Community
which will become final on
January 1. "compels Spain to act"

A Three-part series by Rabbi Ir-
ving Greeaberg
"Will there be one Jewish
people by the year 2001?"
Until recently, this ques-
tion would have been
dismissed as mischievous.
The normal, ongoing social
dynamics of the Jewish com-
munity worked to keep us
one people. From time to
time, special, divisive ac-
tions by militants from dif-
ferent groups threatened to
disrupt the unity. But "We
Are One" appeared to most
Jews to be as eternal and
solid a truth as the ageless
hills.
There has been a derisive
challenge to this truth in the past
20 years. The pattern of current
demographic change and negative
social interaction is leading to
gnm consequences- If sooologica.
forces are left to operate uncheck-
ed, the result will be predictable
Within decades, the Jewish people
will split apart into two. mutualh
divided, hostile groups who are
unable or unwilling to marry each
other.
It will take determined, con-
tinuous action to reverse the com-
bination of demographic trends,
particularly in the areas of conver-
sion, patrilineal descent and
mamzerxm (haiachically il-
legitimate children), that is
creating this disaster for Jewish
survival. (See accompanying box.)
By the turn of the century,
there will be between three-
quarters of a million and a million
people whose Jewishness is con-
tested or whose mamageabuity is
denied by a large group of other
Jews It has been estimated that
the total American Jewish popula-
tion by the year 2000 will be five
minor. Some say it will be even
lower. The conclusion is that,
within two decades. 15 to 20 per
cent of American Jewry will be
socially and haiachically separated
from traditional Jews.
Fifteen to 20 percent is not a fr-
inge phenomenon. Add to these
people their families, friends.
their fellow temple and organoa
tional meabui and they would
constitute a sasjor fragment of
American Jewry. Easily SO per
cent of the Jewish people could be
in some way. ashed with this
group against the traditional Jews
who challenge their status What
do you think would be the impact
on you (or your parents) if you
were told that you are not Jewish
when your parents tall you that
you are. when you believe you are.
and when you belong to a Jewish
temple and engage in JmIi
activities?
Tremendous anger surfaced in
the Who is a Jew controversy. A
measure of the intensity is found
in the resolution of the highlv
Zionist Conservative Rabbinate to
"blacklist" from their pulpits
those Knesset members who
voted to change the law. Conser
vative and Reform Jews
(mistakenly) believed that the Or-
thodox were saying that they are
not Jewish, and not merely that
their converts are not Jewish,

A JEWISH ODYSSEY-
sidious form will be uppermost in
the traditional parents' minds.
One can project a cycle of
alienation, hostility, and
withdrawal that will lead to a
sundering of the Jewish people in-
to two rehgions or two social
groups, fundamentally divided
and opposed to each other
If the numbers in the above
estimates are too high and they
may well be too low then it mav
take until the year 2020 or 2050 to
arrive at the same disastrous end.
But what difference does a few
decades make over the long span
of Jewish history*
V H takes is neglect, doing
nothing, to make this script -
which makes my hand shudder as
it writes come true Yet. at this
moment, there is no brainstorm-
mg. let alone serious dialogue,
between the movements to deal
with the problem.
DENOMINATION
POLITICS
As the threat of social and
'aviJ war looms larger in
riean Jewry, the most
i development is in the in-
dynamics of the individual
denominations The balance of
power within each movement has
shifted toward those who would
solve soda! and rehgious problems
in a manner preferred by and
most convenient for the individual
group, while, in effect, writing off
the concerns or the needs of the
other denominations.
The decision of the Reform rab-
binate to declare a child of Jewish
pertilinea) descent a Jew -
without requiring conversion is
a classic example of this trend.
V\ ithm Reform congregations,
there are thousands of families
with Jewish husband and non-
Jewish wife. The need was to br-
ing them doaer to Judaism and to

Rabbi Feinstein has brilliantly
solved the Orthodox problem and
permitted worthy people who

liberal and compassionate
otherwise, he would simply reject
the mamzenm. However, this
solution is predicated on. quite
simply, dismissing the spiritual
validity of more than a million
Reform Jews and utterly denying
their rabbis. The alternative to
Pproach the Reform rabbinate
and seek to work out some policy
of convincing the masses to obtain

plosive politically in the Orthodox
movement.

also shows the same polarizing

LENDER'S AND PHILLY,
A BREAKFAST TRADITION
SINCE 1927
For nearly 60 years sitting
down to breakfast of Lenders
Bagels and PHILADELPHIA
BRAND Cream Cheese has
been a delicious tradition
Recognized as the first
name in bagels since 1927.
the Lender family still person
ally supervises the baking of
their bagels-guaranteeing
that every variety has a taste
and texture second to
none In just minutes.
Lenders Bagels toast
up cnspy on the out-
side and soft and
chewy on the inside, ready to
be spread with either plain
PHILLY or one of the tempting
fruit or vegetable flavors. And
because PHILLY has half the
calories of butter or mar-
garine, you can enjoy this
satisfying combination every
day.
And, of course, both are
certified Kosher
So if you want
to enjoy a tradition
tomorrow, pick up
the Lenders and

The Holiday of Sukkot The Season of Our Rejoicing
BjDR.
ABRAHAM J. GITTELSON
CAJE Director of Educition
The rhythm of the Jewish
year is composed of con-
tradictory, yet strangely
complementary elements.
From the intensely per-
sonal, awesome, solemn and
austere days of Rosh
Hashana and Yom Kippur,
we come to an entirely dif-
ferent mood, that of the
heights of spiritual rejoic-
ing, the holiday of Sukkot.
Intermingled and interwoven in
the fabric of joy and gladness are
elements of remembrance, divine
providence, the bounty of nature,
and above all else, the love and
devotion to the study of Torah.
Judaism, in a unique and
wonderful fashion, takes each of
these concepts and concretizes it
in a specific mitzvah. The holiday
Sukkot
of Sukkot overflows with these
mitzvot and with the customs that
embellish them, and thus becomes
a festival of unequaled poteatiil
for joyful celebration of Jewish
life. Be Hapf y
TheCoacept
... The Exodus from slavery to freedom, and
tfie wanderings in the desert, under the divine pro-
vidence, must be relived in every generation.
... Life is fragile, the fate of the Jew seems
precarious, yet the longing and conviction of even-
tual redemption (the Messianic Age) are always
present.
While Judaism is a religion of time (the Shab-
bat and holidays, historical remembrances, etc.)
yet we must be specially sensitive to the physical
world around us and its bounty.
Deeds of loving kindness must complement
the rituals (man-God) of the Jewish year and the
Jewish life cycle.
. The study of Torah. is not only equal to all
other commandments, it is a 'sheer delight'!
. The Land of Israel is embedded in the Jewish
experience in time and space.
The Actaalizatioa
. The erection of the Sukkah. a frail and tem-
porary structure, symbolic of both the booths in
which our ancestors lived in the desert, and the
'clouds of glory' which protected them.

Ethiopia's Jews:
Certifiably Jewish
It could be said that the
Jews of Ethiopia are the lost
tribe of Dan, whom the Bi-
ble describes as "dark-
complexioned." Or perhaps
they are descended from
King Solomon and the
Queen of Sheba, who saw
herself as "black and come-
ly." Or maybe they were
once an African tribe, con-
verted to Judaism by Jewish
merchants traveling north-*
from soutft>rn Arabia,
millenia ago.
The truth of their origins is lost
in time. What is known is that
Ethiopia's Jews, cut off from
Judaism long before the Talmud
was written or the events of
Chanukah and Purim took place,
remained a community apart from
Ethiopia's neighboring tribes
venerating the Torah and fervent-
ly following pre-rabbinic Jewish
law and tradition.
Over the centuries, travelers
made reference to a "Jewish
tribe" in Ethiopia, but Ethiopian
Jews were not "discovered" by
the modern world until late in the
19th century. An intermittent
defelc Jjegan then sjm raftb.;.;.' ;
aba*^tJK yawishness of these
Ethiopian's an argument resolv- ? **.
ed in 1973. when both Israel's
Chief Rabbis formally recognized
them as Jews
That recognition was followed
in 1975 by a declaration from
Israel's government that Ethiopian
Jews were entitled to enter the
Jewish State under the Law of
Return (1950) that provides
Israeli citizenship to all Jewish im-
migrants on their arrival.
The Jewish Agency (which
receives funds from the Jewish
Federation/UJA campaign).
however, had been in active con-
tact with Ethiopian Jewry long
before. As early as 1955, it had
brought 27 Ethiopian youngsters
to Israel, and trained them as
teachers in the Youth Aliyah
village of Kfar Batya.
The youngsters returned to
Ethiopia as teachers. They fired
young and old with a strong year-
ning to return to Israel.

UNITED NATIONS (JTA) -
King Hussein of Jordan will come
to New York to address the
United Nations General Assembly
on Friday. Sept 27. only a few
days before Israeli Premier
Shimon Perea is scheduled to ad-
dress the Assembly on Oct 2.
Observers here said today that
they do not rule out a meeting bet-
ween Peres and Hussein, although
they stressed, that if indeed a
meeting takes place between the
two leaders it will be secret and
promptly denied by both.
Jordan's IN Mission announced
here the King's visit to the UN for
the 40th lean tin of the General
Assembly which opened Sept 17.
No other details regarding Hus-
sein's visit were provided and it
was not dear if he will go to
Washington from New York to
meet with President Reagan.
Peres is scheduled to continue
on to Washington after his New
York visit to meet with Reagan
and other Administration
officials.
A spokesman for the Soviet
Union said that Soviet .Foreign
Minister Eduard Shevardnadxe
will attend the General Aasembm-
ly. Earlier reports said that Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev may at-
tend the Assembly and the Israeli
press speculated that a meeting
between Perea and Gorbachev
might take place.
Diplomats here said, however,
that Soviet-Israeli contacts might
take place in a form of a meeting
between Foreign Minister Yitrhak
Shamir and the Soviet Foreign
Minister. Last year, during the
General Assembly. Shamir met
with then Soviet Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromyko.

HAY FEVER BLUES
An estimated 8 to 10 percent of
the population suffers from hay
fever. For those who are
genetkaHy prediapneed to pollen
allergies, danger lurks around
every corner from May to
October.
But take heart There are ways
to get rabef from the hay fever
Wash you hair regularly,
especially after spending a lot of
time outside This will help pre-
vent carrying around your owe
supply of pollen
Stay indoors as much as possi-
ble and use air conditioning rather
than opening windows.
Try using an over-the-counter
antihistimine to relieve
symptoms.
Check with your doctor if
symptoms persist
Those who have never fallen vic-
tim to the yearly onslaught of
ren shouldn't breathe too eaai-
AUergies can develop over a
period of time. Sometimes more
than one exposure is required for
an allergy to develop. According
to Walter H. Lewis. PhD. pro-
fessor of biology at Washington
University in St Louis. Allergic
response may develop in as little
as two exposures, or it may take
ae many as 10."
When an allergic response
develops, the body begins to pro-
duce antibodies that attack
themselves to mast ceUs in allergy
susceptible areas of the body.
Eventually antigen-antibody com-
plexes form on the surface of
these mast ceils
to oose compounds.
the cells
The most significant of these
compounds releaasd into the
bloods stream is histimine.
Hwrsmme triggms dilation of
blood vessels and is responsible
for producing hay fever symptoms
such as headache, watery eyea,

Ressarchu s and physicians who
spnriahar in the treatment of
allergies are currently working on
the development of new drugs and
treatment to arrest hay fever.
Two new antihistimines. both re-
quiring preacripbooa, may eoon be
available. The two. Terfenidine
and Axiernixoie. have proven ef-
fective in relieving hay fever
symptoms without producing the
usual aide effects of droi
and dryness of the month
For the time being, however,
hay feber sufferers will have to
deal with the allergy as before.
While it may be too late for this
season, regular sufferers might
want to consider taking allergy
shots now to protect them from
next year's pollen
