Palm-Aire '87 UJA Pacesetter Luncheon
December 15 Honors Five Community Leaders
Five distinguished members of the
Palm-Aire community in Pompano Beach,
will receive the plaudits of the 1987
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale/ United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign, when they are honored at the
Palm-Aire Division Annual Pacesetter
Luncheon, Monday, Dec. 15, at noon, in
the Palm-Aire Hotel and Convention
More than 200 men and women from
the country club development will be on
hand when Division chairman Irving
Libowsky presents coveted awards to the
five leaders including Joseph Kranberg,
Charles Ruben, Harry Sacks, Sam
Schwartz and Milton Trupin.
Libowsky, who last year was named to
the Federatkm/UJA "Hall of Fame," for
his outstanding work on behalf of the
Jewish community's major philanthropy,
indicated that this year's recipients were
the true stalwarts of the Palm-Aire com-
munity. He said, "It was indeed a
privilege to have them as a part of our
team who have worked so diligently to
help achieve the life-saving, life-giving
gifts so vitally needed to aid in the social
welfare and humanitarian programs here
at home, in Israel and around the world.
Through their heartfelt generosity and
tireless efforts, we have made the dream
come true for tens of thousands of our
brethren and for that we are all proud!"
Joseph Kranberg, co-founder and presi-
dent of the Palm-Aire Civic Association
the first five years, is a member of the Ex-
ecutive Committee since 1974 and a past
president, Condo 4. He was Palm-Aire's
first honoreee for the State of Israel
Bonds and prior to coming to South
Florida, was the former president of the
UJA in Geneva, New York.

Arabia gave the PLO $28.5
million earlier this month,
the World Jewish Congress
reported. Rafiq Al-Natshah,
the PLO representative in
Riyadh, said that the sum
represents Saudi Arabia's
annual contribution to
the PLO and was in accor-
dance with the resolution of
the Baghdad Arab summit
held in 1979. Natshah said,
"More than any other state
Saudi Arabia has fulfilled its
commitment to support the
PLO regularly and con-
sistently, not only financial-
ly but also politically and
political and church leaders
made significant gestures
toward the Jewish com-
munity over Yom Kippur to
counteract the surge of anti-
Semitism which accom-
panied last summer's

"Although I've been to Israel a
number of times, I truly saw it
through new eyes this trip,"
stated Barbara Wiener, Federa-
tion Board member and leader on
the recent President's Mission to
Israel. "We all went with two
goals in mind. One was to see and
learn about our homeland and the
second was to make our commit-
ment to the 1987 Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign. However we shared a lot
more than our experiences there.
We shared a special 'oneness.' "

The second part of the Mission
kicked off with an address by
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kolleck.
"The group became a 'group'
during the mission." Wiener
stated. "We all came together to
build a Federation and a strong
Jewish community. Everyone did
much more than what was ex-
pected of them. We all made
strong commitments to Federa-
tion and UJA."
Highlighting the second portion
of the Mission was a visit to

residents of Kfar Saba.
"Whenever we visit Kfar Saba, I
notice all the new changes that
have taken place plus I get to see

their homes as well as their hearts
to us," Wiener stated.
The most moving experience on
the Mission, Wiener stated, was

participant held a candle and sang

Wiesel:'... Because Today I Will Be Heard'
By MARGIE OLSTER
NEW YORK (JTA) Nobel
Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel,
recognized as the "voice of the
Holocaust" generally shuns the
limelight, but following announce-
ment of the award, said he wanted
to voice his views "because today
I will be heard."
At a press conference Wiesel
said he was "profoundly grateful"
to the chairman of the Nobel
Peace Prize Committee. "Today,
thanks to the very great honor I
have received, I feel these words
will have a stronger future," he
said. The prize, Wiesel said, would
allow him to speak louder and
reach more people.
Wiesel said he shares his honor
with all the survivors of the
Holocaust. "It belongs to all the
survivors who have tried to do
something with their pain, their
suffering with their lives."
The survivors are aa example
of "how not to succumb to
despair," Wiesel said. He said
he had tried to use his suffering
to prevent farther suffering. "I
have developed a romance with
many causes Soviet Jewry is
surely one of the most exalting

American activism on behalf of
Soviet Jewry in the 1960's, said

bachev to release Yosef Begun,

How Did Soviet Jewry Fare at Reykjavik?
The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
Kiev, September 27,1941: Posters throughout the city demand
that Jews assemble for "resettlement." More than 30 thousand
report. They are taken to Babi Yar, a ravine just outside the city.
There, they are brutally executed. The horror is unimaginable. On
this 45th anniversary of the slaughter at Babi Yar, we remember
the victims by recalling the story of Dina Pronicheva, who
miraculously managed to escape. She told her story to the Rus-
sian writer, Anatoli Kuznetsov. Martin Gilbert in his monumental
work, The Holocaust, quotes from his work:
All around and beneath her she could hear strange submerged
sounds, groaning, choking and sobbing: many of the people were
not dead yet. The whole mass of bodies kept moving slightly as
they settled down and were pressed tighter by the movements of
the ones who were still living.
Some soldiers came out on to the ledge and flashed their torches
down on the bodies, firing bullets from their revolvers into any
which appeared to be still living. But someone not far from Dina
went on groaning as loud as before.
Then she heard people walking near her, actually on the bodies.
They were Germans who had climbed down and were bent over
and taking things from the dead and occasionally firing at those
which showed signs of life.
Among them was the policeman who had examined her papers
and taken her bag: she recognized him by his voice.
One SS-man caught his foot against Dina and her appearance
aroused his suspicions. He shone his torch on her, picked her up
and struck her with his fist. But she hung limp and gave no signs
of life. He kicked her in the breast with his heavy boot and trod on
her right hand so that the bones cracked, but he didn't use his gun
and went off, picking his way across the corpses.
A few minutes later she heard a voice calling from above:
"Demidenko! Come on, start shoveling!"
There was a clatter of spades and then heavy thuds as the earth
and sand landed on the bodies, coming closer and closer until it
started falling on Dina herself.
Her whole body was buried under the sand but she did not move
until it began to cover her mouth. She was lying face upwards,
breathed in some sand and started to choke, and then, scarcely
realizing what she was doing, she started to struggle in a state of
uncontrollable panic, quite prepared now to be shot rather than be
With her left hand, the good one, she started scraping the sand
off herself, scarcely daring to breathe lest she should start
coughing; she used what strength she had left to hold the cough
back. She began to feel a little easier. Finally she got herself out
from under the earth ..
Dina's eyes were full of sand. It was pitch dark and there was
the heavy smell of flesh from the fresh corpses she stood up
and started making little foot-holds .. and so raised herself an
inch at a time, likely at any moment to fall back into the pit.
... She heard a whisper which nearly made her jump back.
"Don't be scared, lady! I'm alive too."
It was a small boy in vest and pants who had crawled out as she
had done. He was trembling and shivering all over.
"Quiet!" she hissed at him. "Crawl along behind me." And they
crawled away silently, without a sound.
The boy's name was Motyn. As they were on the verge of leav-
ing the area, he called to her, "Don't move, lady, there's Germans
here!" His call of warning was heard by the Germans, who killed
him on the spot.
After two days of shootings by machine gun and other arms, the
Einsatzkommando unit had murdered 33,771 Jews, one human
life about every five seconds.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
POINT TO NEXT SUMMIT
Editor's Note: While there was
disappointment over the failure to
reach an arms control agreement
at the Iceland summit meeting bet-
ween President Reagan and Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev, the
breakdown in those talks has not
closed the door to future discus-
sions between the superpowers on
Soviet Jewry, including at a
future summit in the United
State*. The issue is now on the
table. The Soviets in Iceland ac-
quiesced in American insistence
that the issue was a legitimate one
for discussion. The doors don't
seem about to swing open, but
Soviet public relations gestures
seem to show that world public opi-
nion is getting under the Soviet
In the question and answer
briefing below, which was
prepared by the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory
Council, a beneficiary agency of
possibilities are explored further.
Q. How did the Soviet Jewry
fare at Reykjavik t
A. While the full story has not
yet been made public, it's clear
that Soviet Jewry was an impor-
tant component in the Iceland
summit. Even before the U.S. and
Soviet delegations arrived in
Iceland, the perception in Reyk-
javik was that Soviet Jewry would
be a major topic on the agenda.
Unlike before the Geneva Summit
of 1986, both the President and
subsequently the Secretary of
State, in his definitive address to a
National Leadership Assembly for
Soviet Jewry on the eve of the
summit, publicly made clear that
Soviet Jewry was a critical issue
on the American agenda. This was
reflected in the Reykjavik
In the past, Soviet officials took
the position that the emigration of
Soviet Jews is an internal matter
not open to negotiations between
the United States and the Soviet
Union. This was not their position
in Iceland as indicated by their
participation in the working group
on human rights; their agreement
to accept a list of 11,000
refuseniks (to be delivered by Am-
bassador Hartman in Moscow); a
tentative agreement on language
that would have referred to Soviet
Jewry in the final communique,
which was never issued; and, most
important, the discussions bet-
ween the President and Gor-
bachev, and Shultz and Soviet
Foreign Minister Shevardnadze.
All of this suggests that the
Soviets at least have acquiesced
in, if not acknowledged, the
United States insistence that the
issue is a legitimate issue for sum-
mit negotiations. As Morris
Abram, chairman of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry, has
pointed out, "It will be quite dif-
ficult hereafter for the Soviets to
contend that these are purely in-
ternal and domestic issues."
Q. Weren't these simply Soviet
A. In addition to the posture
described above, Soviet officials'
willingness to listen politely to the
public pleas of former refuseniks
in behalf of their family and
friends in the Soviet Union and
the release of David Goldfarb and
Inessa Flerov probably do reflect
a new Soviet approach to public
relations on this issue. That the
Soviets feel compelled to make
these P.R. gestures indicates the
reaction of world public opinion
continues to touch exposed Soviet
ierves. That in itself is signifi-
cant. The experience of 20 years
has demonstrated that such
Soviet sensitivity has not only led
periodically to public relations
shifts but such shifts anticipated
changes in policy. This does not
mean the doors are suddenly
about to swing open, but it in-
dicates some kind of movement,
however tentative, by the Soviet
Union for the first time since
Q. Will there now be a summit

renounces terrorism, while 43 per-

Did you say fruit?
APPLE and ORANGE and BUCKWHEAT
Yes, botanically all three are classified as fruit, and each is highly
nutritious in its own way.
Buckwheat is the best source of high biological protein in the entire plant
kingdom very close to the protein level of whole milk solids. Kasha,
the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel, is rich in potassium,
phosphorous, fiber and vitamin B, and NO CHOLESTEROL. Thus, it is
an economical food high in balanced protein and it's delicious, too!

Memories From '66 to '86...
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
The 1974 Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign had a head start, kicking off
in October of 1973. Chaired by
Alvin Gross, the campaign took on
a new meaning this year with a
national UJA goal of $900 million.
Fort Lauderdale, meeting the
ever-increasing needs of Jews
locally, in Israel and worldwide,
met these new demands head on
and announced, as of Dec. 14, a
campaign total of $1.8 million
towards the $2.5 million goal an-
nounced by Gross.
As 1974 approached, the cam-
paign was over 400 percent ahead
of last year which was the highest
for any community with a popula-
tion of over 10,000 Jews.
The women were actively
meeting their responsibility by in-
itiating a policy that stated that
funds will be raised by areas
through special programs and
functions to be planned by various
area chairmen and leadership.
The women also received na-
tional attention in '74 in the Na-
tional UJA Women's Division
publication. Under the presidency
of Mrs. Jacob Lutz, the women
proudly announced that the cam-
paign reached a large number of
new contributors and that more
women were at the $1,000 plus
mark than ever before. Plantation
and Inverrary women held parlor
meetings for the first time, thus
organizing a strong UJA cam-
paign in those 'new' areas.
Also 'new* on the Federation
front was a new address. The
Federation moved to 707 N.
Federal Highway. The new
building also housed the Jewish
Family Service office.
Another 'new' happening was
that, for the first time, the
Federation sent representatives
on a Mission to Israel. Ten North
Broward residents participated.
Highlighting the 1974 campaign
was the black-tie affair chaired by
Allan and Terri Baer. The
prestigious event was held at Pier
66 and featured world renowned
speaker Theodore Bikel.
On the international scene, Yit-
zhak Rabin succeeded Golda Meir,
as President Nixon visited Israel
and pledged $6.5 billion in aid.
The world also mourned the pass-
ing of David Ben-Gurion at the
age of 87.
And the Federation, growing by
leaps and bounds, named a new
assistant director, Barry Axler.
How Did Soviet Jewry
Fare at Reykjavik?
Continued from Page 4
in the United States?
A. "It's anyone's guess," as
Secretary of State Shultz stated
in a television interview. No one
can predict at this time the future
course of superpower relations,
but the post-Iceland comments of
both the President and Mr. Gor-
bachev indicate a strong desire to
continue the dialogue. The very
difficult negotiations that will en-
sue between the two governments
in coming months, on the new
stage in arms control proposals,
are likely to lead to a need for the
two leaders to meet again. In
short, the post-Reykjavik words
and actions of the two govern-
ments are likely to generate
pressures that will lead them back
to a summit in 1987.
Q. Should communities continue
to prepare for the Washington
A. Yes. It is the judgment of the
National Jewish Community Rela-
tions Advisory Council, and
shared by the NCSJ, that com-
munities should continue to work
on the assumption that there will
be a summit in 1987. That was the
assumption that guided us in
1986, and it proved to be effec-
tive. Our preparations during
1986 for Summit II allowed us to
move swiftly and effectively when
the Iceland summit was announc-
ed. Our months-long mobilization
for Summit II (without confirma-
tion of a date or place or even
whether it would be held) resulted
in Soviet Jewry being very high
on the agenda of the summit in
Iceland. In effect, Summit II took
place only in Iceland and,
however we characterize it, we
are now mobilizing for another
summit, this time in the United
States, in order to ensure that
Soviet Jewry will continue to be
among the highest priorities at
the next summit meeting.
Q. Does this focus on the
Washington Mobilization deflect
the emphasis on other Soviet
A. Quite the contrary; it rein-
forces them. The Washington
mobilization is a tool, not an end in
itself. Its ultimate impact, as
demonstrated in Reykjavik, is
determined not only by how many
people come to Washington for a
massive demonstration, but in

Women With a Mission
By WENDY ELLIMAN
UJA Prm Service
JERUSALEM Have you
hugged an Ethiopian child today?
Or been invited by an Israeli
teenager to see her dormitory at
school? Have you shared one of
the world's best cheesecakes with
a young kibbutz family in the
heart of the arid Negev? Or pluck-
ed sweet juicy melons from inert
For 66 women from 15 North
American Jewish comunities this
past September it was "Yes" to
all of the above on the United
Jewish Appeal National Women's
Division Fall Leadership Mission
to Israel, part of Celebration '87,
the Opening here of the '87
"I've been to Israel umpteen
times before," said Marlene Bor-
man of Detroit one of 12 Women's
Division National Board members
who joined the mission. "But
there's something very special
about knowing that you've touch-
ed a young life something you
can never tire of."
While the mission program took
its members all over Israel ex-
ploring issues which ranged from
politics to Arab-Jewish relations,
high-tech industry to the
Holocaust its emphasis was
firmly on lives, both young and
old, which are touched through
the UJA/Federation Campaign.
"I knew, of course, where UJA
funds are applied before I came on
the mission," said Hermeen
Scharaga of San Diego, one of
seven participants visiting Israel
for the first time. "But simply
knowing is not the same as seeing
as meeting people, talking to
them, and learning who they are,
what they need, and how they see
For Judith A. Levy of Boston,
National Women's Division Chair-
man, "The mission was
marvelous. It worked out just the
way we sat down and planned it in
New York but with a vitally im-
portant addition. There was an in-
stant bond between mission
members. We came from com-
munities many miles apart, and
we covered a 30-year age span,
but we shared many things. Most
important was a sense of caring
about Jews and about Israel."
That shared caring showed in
many ways from unflagging
note-taking and questions
throughout a demanding pro-
gram, to harmonious singing and
laughter on the buses, and a
warmth that encompassed
everyone they met
"Come back and see us! We're
friends now. And send more peo-
ple like yourselves," said Don and
Sarah of Kibbutz Mashabei Sadeh
in the Negev Desert, one of
several dozen families who
welcomed mission members into
their homes for coffee, cake and
Kibbutz Mashabei Sadeh is one
of 500 settlements that have been
built by the Jewish Agency within
Israel's pre-1967 borders since
1948 by aid of UJA funds. The
Jewish Agency is the largest pro-
vider of services in Israel after the
government, and the major bridge
between Jews in Israel and Jews
in the diaspora.
Since a main Jewish Agency
challenge is immigration absorp-
tion, the mission visited
Mevasseret Zion near here, one of
Israel's 50 absorption centers. At
Mevasseret Zion, many of the 900
immigrants are from Ethiopia.
"While the world shed crocodile
tears over famine in Ethiopia, we
Jews went in and brought out our
people in a dangerous and costly
operation that is without prece-
dent in human history," Morton
Dolinaky of the Jewish Agency's
Immigration Department remind-
ed the participants.
Youth Aliyah is another major
UJA-funded program, and
hosting the mission at a field-visit
to two of Israel's 250 Youth
Aliyah villages were the
youngsters themselves. Youth
Aliyah aids over 18,000 disadvan-
taged Israeli teenagers.
"Talking to the kids was fun,"
said Roberta Holland of Rhode
Island, the Mission's Chairman,
"And they were as interested in
us as we were in them."
In the Negev, the Jewish
Agency's Chief Engineer there,
Menachem Perlmutter, said,
"Agriculture in Israel is not just
farming: it's a spirit that won't ac-
cept failure. A generation ago in
Israel, we could scarcely feed
ourselves. Today, we export food
and 52 countries seek Israel's
Huge injections of funds from
Jews worldwide have helped make
all this possible, and the job is far
from over. Most of the Negev is
still a stony desert. Fifty
moshavim nationwide still depend
on Jewish Agency support. New
Galilee settlements are still
"People's lives have been saved
or changed for the better because
of our caring," said Judith Levy.
"We're proud of what we've ac-
complished, and accept the conti-
nuing responsibility of keeping
Jewish Agency programs funded.
The work can't continue without
our support. Our community deci-

the day after Yom Kippur,

and I have prayed well," Wiesel
Wiesel, 58, will continue his
teaching, his publishing and hit
activism for human rights."
"I decided to devote my life to
tell the story because I felt that
having survived, I owe something
to the dead. They left me behind
... That was their obsession to
be remembered. Anyone who does
not remember betrays them
again. That is why I devoted my
life to tell the story," Wiesel said.
Shimon Peres sent a telegram
to Wiesel congratulating him on
the award and praising him for
teaching a "holy lesson" to the
world and preserving the memory
of the six million Jewish victims of
"You are ceaselessly striking
the bells of collective memory,
the pain of the murdered Jews,"
Peres said in the telegram.
"Without forgetting our peo-
ple's isolation in the darkness of
the Holocaust, you teach us un-
tiringly a holy lesson," Peres
Yitzhak And, chairman of Yad
Vashem in Jerusalem said,
"Doubtlessly, the prize serves the
promotion of the knowledge and
awareness of the Holocaust, but
Wiesel also promotes such
knowledge as a warning to the
whole of mankind against hatred
and racism." Wiesel is the
honorary chairman of the Interna-
tional Society of Yad Vashem.
French President Francois Mit-
terand and dozens of French
celebrities cabled their con-
gratulations to Wiesel, who lived
in Paris from 1944 until 1956.

If you believe in the unity of the Jewish people and
the centrality of Israel in Jewish life...
If you stand for strengthening the democratic State
If you support the ingathering of the Jewish people
to its historic home, Eretz Yisrael...
If you advocate the preservation of the Jewish
people and their identity through education and
If you care about the protection of Jewish rights,
and all minority rights, everywhere...
If you believe in these principles of the Zionist
Movement, then you already believe as all Zionists
But are you acting on your beliefs?
It all started with a dream...
Zionism emerged from the deep yearning of a
people to return to their Biblical homeland. A people,
dispersed by time and terror, seeking a new national
movement incorporating aspirations so often
challenged by pogroms and torturous times.
It was these aspirations for freedom that were so
similar to those that gave birth to America. And their
fulfillment was the creation of the State of Israel, in
a way that resonates strongly in the hearts of all
Americans. And in the million who have joined
the Zionist Movement.
Is the Zionist Movement
Without an organized movement in
which Jews are publicly identified, there
can be no democratic action. Not for
peace, nor for the many monumental
accomplishments of recent years.
The resettlement in Israel of
1,800,000 immigrants from over
100 countries. The vast educa-
tional program for many
hundreds of thousands of
youngsters in Israel and in
the United States. The ini-
tiation of the struggle to
rescue Soviet Jewry,
Ethiopian Jewry, and
Jews in peril through-
out the globe
You can continue this endeavor as part of a mean-
ingful American Jewish community by lending voice
to the Zionist Movement. By standing up and being
counted. This is the American way. the way for the
1,000,000 Americans who presently declare with
pride, "I am a Zionist."
How can I be effective?
1. Affiliate. Join any of the 16 American Zionist
organizations. Just mail the coupon for membership
2. Participate. Come to Philadelphia, where
American democracy began! From January 4th to
7th, 1987, Philadelphia will be home to the American
Zionist Assembly. The climax of our membership
campaign. Here you can be inspired by world-
renowned speakers, learn from celebrated educa-
tors, enjoy cultural and spiritual regeneration through
a striking series of programs. And
most significantly, share in the
) decisions affecting Zionists the
world over. Ask for enrollment
and reservation details.
3. Vote. As a Zionist organization member, you will
be asked, in May 1987, to help elect delegates to the
31st World Zionist Congress in late 1987. Your
answer has never meant more. The World Zionist
Congressthe parliament of the Jewish people
is the only democratic legislative body for world
Jewry; your vote is their instrument. Raise your

Hebrew Day School Cash Drawing December 13
Mark your calendar. On Satur-
day evening, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m., the
David Posnack Hebrew Day
School will present its Second An-
nual C-A-S-H drawing in support
of the School's 1986-87 Scholar-
ship Program. The gala event will
be held in Soref Hall on the Jewish
Community Center Campus, 6501
W. Sunrise Blvd., Plantation.
The top prize will be $10,000
with a $2,500 second prize, plus
four $500 third prizes. Only a
limited number of tickets will be
Besides the big prizes, the tax
deductible $100 ticket entitles the
purchaser to an evening of dining
and live entertainment.
Jeff Saster, vice president of the
Day School's Ways and Means
Committee, stated that "a strong,
solvent Jewish Day School must
continue to be an essential part of
our Jewish community in the
Greater Fort Lauderdale area."
"It is essential to offer the com-
munity a choice, that is the option
of a viable Jewish School for those
parents who want a Judaic educa-
tion for their children," Saster ad-
ded. "Consequently this fund-
raiser permits parents who would
not be able to afford to send their
child to the Day School, the ability
to get a scholarship. This together
with the continued support of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, of which the
Day School is a major beneficiary
agency, allows parents to make a
positive choice for their children's
Jewish education. We urge the en-
tire community to support our ef-
fort and buy tickets so that we
may reach our goals."
Mr. Saster concluded by saying,
"Contributions will permit the
David Posnack Hebrew Day
School to continue offering
Broward County a model Jewish
education for their new school."
For full details contact Tema
Friedman, assistant director of
the Day School, at 583-6100.
The Second Annual "I Need $10,000 More Than You Do" draw-
ing, sponsored by the David Posnack Hebrew Day School, will be
held on Saturday, Dec. IS in Soref Hall on the JCC Campus. Pic-
tured holding a ticket are Jeff Saster, vice president of the Ways
and Means Committee and Tema Friedman, assistant director of
the Day School.
Caregivers Support Group to
Begin at Gathering Place
The stresses of caring for frail
elderly parents are many. The
day-to-day problems of coping
with an ailing spouse may seem
overwhelming but there is help.
There is comfort in learning how
others cope and that you are not
the only person dealing with
similar problems. Just having a
place where you get things off
your chest can be a relief.
A self-help caregivers group will
begin at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday,
Dec. 4 at the Gathering Place,
located on the JCC campus, 6501
W. Sunrise Blvd. Bonnie Krauss,
program director, will be the
facilitator for the session.
At the initial meeting, the group
will decide on frequency and
length of meetings in the future.
Advance reservations must be
made by calling Bonnie at
797-0330 by Nov. 21.

$6000 this year by living
at a Forum Group Retirement
(These are excerpts from an actual recorded interview with
Mr. Jack Gordon, a resident at The Lafayette, Forum Group's
rental retirement community in Philadelphia, PA)
"One of the most devastating things that can happen to older peo-
ple is to have to put a large sum of money up front to move into a
retirement community. Here, we're on a strictly rental basis. That's
the big attraction. We can earn interestup to $6000 a yearon the
money we would have to pay to buy a place, at some other community."
Introducing The Park Summit of Coral Springs, Forum
Group's newest full-service rental retirement community.
The Park Summit is conveniently located in the model city of Coral
Springs, a well-planned and impeccably maintained community.

Temple Beth Am
Temple Beth Am is pleased to
announce the beginning of an ex-
pansion campaign entitled "Come
Grow With Us." The goal of the
campaign is to raise $1.5 million
to build s new freestanding school
building that will contain 13
classrooms, a folly-furnished
youth lounge and a school ad-
ministrative office. The school will
have the capacity to hold more
than 500 students which it is an-
ticipated will be the school enroll-
ment in a few years. The Rabbi
Solomon Geld Religious School in
1980 had less than 50 students; in
1986 it has almost 400, and the
growth rate is expected to con-
tinue for years to come. The cur-
rent school building, which does
not have the capacity to handle
even the current enrollment, will
be remodeled and converted into a
full primary school department,
enabling Temple Beth Am, for the
first time, to open a full-fledged
nursery school program to service
its members and the community
The expansion project will also
allow for the building of an addi-
tion to the Temple multi-purpose
social rooms of a beautiful social
hall-ballroom that will be able to
accommodate the community's
needs for elegant, kosher catering
to enjoy the many "Simchas" in
the community. The social hall-
ballroom will also give the Temple
the capacity of an additional 600
seats for the High Holy Days to
bring up the High Holiday capaci-
ty in the sanctuary service to
2,100 people. Rabbi Plotkin said
that "since the erection of our
building in 1980, the congregation
has grown by 300 percent and we
are bursting at the seams in every
way. This expansion project will
enable us to handle the present
growth and the anticipated future
growth well into the 21st century

nursery, fill in the two needs that
we have not yet been able to meet
for our membership and communi-
ty as a whole."

With Rhyme and Reason
Opening the Ark in Shul
On Shabbes was my chore
I felt a thousand eyes on me
As I stood by its door.
Then when I pulled the big round
The portal opened wide.
I drew the curtains, and behold:
I saw G-d's light inside
Where Torah, His most precious
Was waiting to unfold
Its precepts of eternal truth
To all both young and old.
How good to see our Tree of Life
As always, there to teach!
And what an honor having it
So well within my reach! ..
Now looking back on all of this,
I find my heart still sings:
I'm thankful that I had the chance
At last to pull some
strings .. .

JCC LE BROWSE PLEASES
The older and the young, the
rich and the not so rich are among
the perennial shoppers who get up
in the morning and ask
themselves, "What's in store for
me today?" "Where should I look
for an old maple roll-top desk?" or
"Where can I find a gold-bordered
Lenox footed cake plate1"
Besides the numerous young
people or new folks in town set-
ting up housekeeping who don't
have bottomless purses, you'll
find many treasure seekers roam-
ing the thrift shops looking for
something specific. A sizeable
number of these shoppers find just
what they're looking for in JCC's
Located in the Shoppes of Oriole
Plaza at 4314 N. State Road 7 bet-
ween Oakland and Commercial
Blvd., Le Browse has grown. It is
known in the neighborhood as
THE place where the prices are
right, the staff helpful and the
stock is clean, neat, varied and
"We now occupy five store
fronts," says Louise Giordano, the
store's manager. "We started
with just one store in 1979. Now
we're known all over the county
Like most other Thrift Shops,
Le Browse's proceeds help sup-
port its sponsor in this case
the Samuel and Helene Soref
Jewish Community Center, an
agency which serves children and
adults of every age in Jewish
oriented educational and recrea-
tional programs. Denying no one
the opportunity to participate in
its programs because of financial
need, the center maintains an on-
going Scholarship Fund which of-
fers help to deserving families.
JCC is located on the Perlman
Campus, 6501 W. Sunrise Blvd. in
"We depend upon the generosi-
ty of JCC/s members and friends
for our stock," says Giordano.
"Just take a look at our furniture
section! We think it looks more
like a department store than a
resale store! You can see that we
take pains to set up our sofas and
easy chairs in homelike groupings
with lamps, knick-knacks and oc-
casional pieces that really look
good together!" She goes on to
describe the Le Browse van,
whose drivers stand ready to
The day we visited, Charlene
Costadura and her son Carmine,
age 9, were in the market for
some new bedroom furniture for
the young man. "I enjoy coming
here," she said. "The store is kept
well and lots of time I bring both
my Mother and my Mother-in-law.
We usually walk out with a good
buy, if not furniture, then a
sweater or a pair of shoes for Car-
mine." If Mrs. Costadura doesn't
find her furniture today, she'll try
again knowing that new stock
items arrive daily.
In addition to the furniture, the
shop has an ever changing stock
of paintings, art deco, antiques,
china, crystal, silver and other
items of precious metals that
come from estates or from
families who are in the
redecorating mood. Le Browse
also has rack upon rack of Men's,
Women's and Children's clothing.
"And it's all in good shape," says
one of the steady volunteers who
likes her cashier's job so well she
works five days a week!
Connie Wilson, a first time
visitor to Le Browse, just moved
here from Pennsylvania and is
looking to furnish. She came with
her sister-in-law and her son,
residents of Lauderdale Lakes for
the past several years. Joining
them was another Le Browse
regular who was searching for
With its growing number of
steady customers in the market
for good buys in furniture and
clothing, Le Browse staff is kept
on its toes. The shop has several
dozen men and women on its
volunteer roster who come to fill
regularly scheduled spots. The
staff would gladly welcome new
volunteers to join them.
Many of Le Browse's most
faithful helpers sit on its Board
and help guide the operations.
