Volunteers Sharpen Skills for '87 Drive
Area residents will have the op-
portunity to learn the skillful art
of prospect solicitation and the im-
portance of achieving new gifts
from the 1987 Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign, when they attend one of
their division's educational and
assignment meetings to be held
throughout the coming months.
According to Sheldon S. Polish,
general chairman, the campaign
cabinet is setting the wheels in
motion to plan for these all-
important meetings to be held
throughout the Greater Fort
Lauderdale area to provide the
necessary tools to give the cam-
paign volunteer the wherewithal
to do the primary job of raising
the life-saving, life-giving dollars
needed to meet this year's goal of
$7.2 million.
Polish said, "Jewish life is a bit
schizophrenic. One minute there is
a terrorist bombing at the Wall in
Jerusalem, and next, Elie Wiesel
is named Nobel Peace prize reci-
pient. We must be involved in the
Federation because we must con-
tinue to sustain and nourish our

Human Rights Plea for Soviet Jewry Dec. 9
The North Broward community
is cordially invited to attend this
year's Human Rights Plea for
Soviet Jewry, which will be held
on Tuesday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. at
Temple Beth Israel, 7100 W.
Oakland Park Blvd.
Sponsored by the Soviet Jewry
Committee and the Community
Relations Committee of the
Jewish Federation, the Human
Rights Plea will ask North
Broward residents to help 'light
their way to freedom,' by showing
support for the plight of Soviet
Jews denied the freedom to
Special guest speaker will be
Rosina Fernhoff, who will present
her spectacular one-woman
presentation of "Shadows."
"I was sent to your country to
talk about my dance company, but
this is not why I'm here I'm
here to ask for political asylum .
Rosina Fernhoff
Don't let them force me to board a
plane and fly back to Russia ... If
your authorities do not lead me to
safety, I will not be free ."
Thus begins the urgent plea that
makes everyone of us responsible
for Nadia Arkadina's freedom.
Alone on a bare stage, she gives
voice to her saga of war and years
of hiding, political purges and
tyranny, of her grandmother's
mystical teachings and the sup-
pression of her Jewishness both as
an individual and creative spirit.
Her suspenseful plea for asylum
culminates in the revelation of her
true identity.
"Miss Fernhoff s moving por-
trayal of the history of the strug-
gle for freedom for Russian Jews
reaffirmed my own commitment
to the cause we all share," stated
Richard Entin, CRC chairman.
"Everyone should take this oppor-
tunity to see such a moving por-
trayal of human suffering."
Convened by Hadassah, the
Human Rights Plea is free of

"There is a window of opportunity

said. "Right now maximum tax
savings exist, in some cases up to

Federation's Role in the Community
Stressed at November Board Meeting
What is the quality of Jewish
life in North Broward County and
how do we as a Federation con-
tribute to Jewish life here, were
some of the key items under
discussion at the November board
meeting of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale at the
West Oakland Park Boulevard
According to Brian J. Sherr,
Federation president, the impor-
tant role that is afforded
throughout the leadership of the
Federation and the Federa-
tion/UJA campaigners will mean
the difference between a viable
Xscale community responsive to
of its residents. He said, "It is
vital that our support be all-
inclusive, so that we re not seen as
some kind of narrow-based group;
literally, that we will be the
Jewish community connection.
We're doing a lot of things
right. Increasingly, we're going to

what the people need and to con-
nect them up to resources in the
"We're going to have to per-
sonalize our Federation/U J A cam-
paign. A lot of people out here
don't know what the Federation is
and what their dollars do.
In the next couple of years, the
campaign will have to come to
grips with the reality that the
needs in the community are much
What's the biggest challenge?
"To identify new leaders, to
prepare them, to sensitize items
to needs within the community, to
link them up to particular agen-
cies, and, toughest of all, to help
them see all this through a Jewish
perspective, Jewish values."
Federation/UJA general chair-
man Sheldon S. Polish told the
board that the '87 drive was in full
swing, and gifts totaling $1.4
million have already been pledged
toward the $7.2 million goal. The
leaders were also told of the Dec.
4 Major Gifts Division Dinner to
help launch the UJA drive at the

Gourmet Caper Jewish Buying Power
The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
A Spiritual Helmet
A few years ago, Simcha Goldman was a United States Air
Force psychologist. He is also an Orthodox Jew and an ordained
rabbi, and, as such, wore a kippa except when asleep or in the
Problem: Air Force regulations specify that no headgear may
be worn indoors when on duty, except by armed forces security
police. As a result, in 1981, Goldman's superior ordered him to
take off his kippa. Goldman respectfully declined to do so and
made a federal case of it.
A federal district court judge upheld Goldman's right to wear a
yarmulke because of the First Amendment's guarantee of
freedom of religious expression. But the Air Force appealed to
the Supreme Court. Last spring, the court rejected Goldman's
contention that the order to remove his kippa infringed upon his
freedom of religious belief. The court found that "the First
Amendment does not prohibit the challenged regulation from be-
ing applied to petitioner, even though its effect is to restrict the
wearing of the headgear required by his religious beliefs. That
amendment does not require the military to accommodate such
practices as wearing a yarmulke .. Here the Air Force has
drawn the line essentially between religious apparel that is visible
and that which is not, and the challenged regulation reasonably
and evenhandedly regulates dress in the interest of the military's
perceived need for uniformity."
Next case.
Goldman left the service rather than not wear his kippa and
went into private practice in Southern California. Now that it's
clear that the United States Air Force isn't for him, one wonders
whether he has thought of capping his career by joining the
Israeli Air Force.
Israeli military personnel are, of course, allowed to wear kippot,
outdoors or in. According to Jewish tradition, covering the head
shows reverence for God.
While the American Air Force seems to believe that the wear-
ing of a kippa would undermine the effectiveness of the military,
Israeli soldiers who wear a kippa prove otherwise. One example is
Benny Kerem, 37. Administrative director of Aish HaTorah Col-
lege of Jewish Studies, a yeshiva for newly-observant American
Jews, Kerem is a medic of a crack infantry brigade when he does
his reserve duty. As a religious observant mudthumper, he won
the Outstanding Soldier Award ii: his training unit and saw com-
bat in Lebanon.
"My kippa doesn't cause me any hassles," says Benny. "My big-
gest religious problem is my beard if there were a call up of my
reserve unit, I'd have to shave it off. Otherwise, my gas mask
wouldn't fit.
"According to halacha, you don't have to wear a kippa when
you're fighting your helmet serves as your kippa. But I wear a
cloth kippa underneath it's my spiritual helmet. One nice thing
about a Jewish army going into combat, though: Where else do
you see so many nice Jewish boys with their heads covered?"
Lt. Col. Ra'anan Gissin, the (bareheaded) spokesman for the
Israel Defense Forces in Jerusalem, gives the kippa wearers good
"We have a program in which young Orthodox men sign up for
alternating yeahiva learning and military service," he says.
"They're high-quality combat manpower. It's not unusual to see a
header yeshiva gey's kippa sticking out of the turret of a Merkava
"Observant Jews aren't the only ones who are accommodated
by the Israeli army," Gissin explains. "Under the Military Rab-
binate, there's a Druse chaplain who's responsible for the
religious needs of our Druse fighting men. And although you pro-
bably haven't read it anywhere, we've recently had a big increase
in the number of Arabs volunteering for the army. They aren't
Bedouins, who have a long tradition of service. They're Muslims
and Christians from the Galilee, serving in infantry units. Of
course, their religious sensitivities are respected.
"We have enough problems without interfering with our
soldiers' religious observances," says Gissin. "We live in a
pluralistic society, so our army has to reflect that. And one way
we reflect it is by being less square about what the Israeli soldier
wears on his head."
Editor's Note: Recently the U.S. Senate voted to uphold the
Supreme Court ruling on yarmuUces.
A secret and confidential report
was prepared by a senior vice
president at a well-known soft
drink company. A copy was fur-
nished to us by a source, who re-
quested anonymity, fearing it
could lead to the loss of her job.
Apparently, during the last two
years this company and others
like it have toyed with the idea of
targeting their products at
various ethnic and religious
groups. The general affluence and
buying power of the Jewish com-
munity has made it one of par-
ticular interest to these
The report reviewed various
ways to encourage greater con-
sumption of its growing product
lines. After an in-house survey,
which led to a bitter feud between
two executives, it was decided
that trying to establish a relation-
ship of its products with various
ethnic foods might lead to increas-
ed sales. For example, who would
not think of ordering wine with
spaghetti? And what is a hot dog
without a beer?
Two hundred and fourteen Jews
from various parts of the country,
but predominantly the northeast,
were carefully selected for the ex-
periment. For several two week
periods they were asked to eat
certain ethnic foods with various
flavored soft drinks in an effort to
determine the best and most ap-
pealing combinations. The first
food tested was gefilte fish. Only
15 percent thought that gefilte
fish and a soft drink made a good
combination. The 85 percent, who
thought the mix was abominable,
did not significantly change their
opinions when they substituted a
diet drink, a caffeine-free drink,
or a fruit-flavored drink.
A majority of the 15 percent,
however, did feel that a fruit-
flavored soft drink gave the
gefilte fish added flavor; although,
a few from this group later com-
plained of heart burn and mild
The next test was a variety of
bagels and soft drinks. Again,
most in the survey felt that soft
drinks and bagels don't mix;
although, a surprising number (44
percent) thought that an onion
bagel and a diet drink were not
the worst combination they had
ever tried. They were not certain,
however, that they would order
this for breakfast. Other combina-
tions tested were egg bagels with
a regular soft drink, bagels with
cream cheese and a diet soft
drink, sesame bagels with a fruit-
flavored soft drink, and poppy
seed bagels with a diet, caffeine-
free drink. Oddly, the testing did
not include a plain, toasted bagel
with cream cheese and strawberry
jam with a caffeine-free drink.
Just over 50 percent of the
group thought that cream herring
and a fruit-flavored soft drink
were good. Unfortunately, the
reasons they gave concerned
mainly the fact that the herring
made them thirsty, and anything
to drink was a blessing. This was
the same result with white fish,
pastrami and corned beef.
Blintzes and soft drinks receiv-
ed almost unanimous condemna-
tion and in several instances
hostility. The report noted that 91
percent refused to eat blintzes
with a soft drink. Of the 9 percent,
who reluctantly agreed to try it
they would only do so for a period
of two days. In a footnote to the
report, one of the participants
became ill after eating blintzes
with a diet drink and could not
continue to participate in the
testing. The company expressed
some concern about a law suit, for
it had failed to ask this party to
sign an unconditional release.
The final test was bagels, cream
cheese and lox with four varieties
of drinks. When none of these
satisfied the testers, the company
decided to add sliced onions. This
resulted in a slight increase
among those who said that if
nothing else was available, they'd
drink a fruit-flavored soft drink
with a bagel, cream cheese, lox
and onions. A few suggested that
the company consider producing
an egg cream.
At the conclusion of the testing
a significant majority indicated
they would just as soon stick with
coffee except for gefilte fish with
which they preferred a sweet red
They also expressed a
preference for decaffeinated cof-
fee if it was brewed and not
Although the company was
disappointed with the survey, the
report concluded by suggesting
that a new group with a much
smaller percentage from the New
York area be tested and that this
time chopped liver and rye bread
be added to the list.

Thanks to You, It's Working .

When You Have Nothing There's So Much to Wish For
This is an older woman talking,
remembering the many Thanksgivings
her family used to have.
I met her at the Jewish Federation
Kosher Nutrition site one day partaking
with fellow senior members of our North
Broward community. Her children live up
North. Her husband was dead. She has
emotional problems, living on public
assistance. She is arthritic.
The only thing pleasant in her life is
Through Federation's Jewish Family
Service, Kosher Nutrition Program, and
Jewish Community Center, there is a dif-
ference in her life. They are helping her
move to a better apartment. They are see-
ing to it that she gets the disability income
she's entitled to. They have provided her
with food and emergency cash for utilities
pending further welfare checks. Their
counselors are working to stabilize her
emotionally and have connected her to a
physician who may be able to balance her
In the meantime, she comes to the pro-
gram site at the Samuel and Helene Soref
Jewish Community Center in the dispat-
ched van for coffee and conversation
nearly every day. Thankful at least that
we're here.
Maybe she won't celebrate her
Thanksgiving with her family as she has
in the past, but Federation/UJA is making
her a happy and viable person, and for
that we can all be grateful.
We are helping her. And thousands of
others in need. We are helping North
Broward County's old and young alike.
We are helping the middle age. We are
helping 600,000poor in Israel and also the
thousands of Ethiopian Jews who are
leaving absorption centers to face the in-
herent rigors of Israeli life at the same
time that unemployment is growing and
that government subsidies for the needy
have been cut because of a greater need to
stabilize Israel's faltering economy.
We are able to do this, because of you.
Your past generosity has helped make our
work possible. This year the needs are
greater. I hope that you will be able to res-
pond with an increasedgift. Please make
it as large as possible. There are so many
of our People with so much to wish for...
at this time of Thanksgiving you have our
heartfelt thanks and their profound

Evelyn Gross to Chair Ruby 10 Division
Lewins to Host Tax Seminar Dec. 9
Alvera Gold, 1987 Women's
Division Campaign Chairman for
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale/United Jewish
Appeal, has announced the ap-
pointment of Evelyn Gross as
Chairman of this year's Ruby Ten
Division of the Women's Division
"I am delighted that Evelyn
Gross has agreed to serve as the
Ruby Ten Chairman," said Gold in
announcing the appointment.
"She brings to this position her
commitment and experience as a
longtime leader in the Fort
Lauderdale Jewish community."
Gross is a past President of the
Women's Division as well as a
past Chairman of the Women's
Division campaign. In 1986 she
was one of three women honored
by the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale at the
annual Major Gifts Dinner in
recognition of her "untiring work
on behalf of the Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal and a
grateful Jewish community."
The Ruby Ten Division was
established by the Fort Lauder-
dale Women's Division in 1985 to
recognize those women whose in-
dividual commitment to the an-
nual Women's Division Federa-
tion/UJA campaign is $10,000 or
Kahane Hit
By Red Dye
Rabbi Meir Kahane,
leader of Israel's ultrana-
tionalist Kach Party, was
doused with red vegetable
dye last Wednesday (Nov.
12) as he spoke at the Na-
tional Press Club.
Kahane was not hurt and con-
tinued speaking, although his
face, hair, hands and clothes were
covered with the substance which
gave the appearance of blood.
"This Arab lives in Washington,
and this Jew lives in Jerusalem,"
Kahane commented after the
assailant fled the meeting room
only to be caught a few minutes
HOWEVER, the assailant, who
was identified by police and club
officials as Daniel Brown, 26, of
Washington, is reportedly a Jew
born in Jerusalem who is a United
States citizen. Police arrested
Brown, whom Kahane charged
with simple assault
The incident happened as
Kahane was speaking at one of
the National Press Club's regular
Morning Newsmakers sessions.

trend toward greater polarization.
Specific goals of the program
are that the Jewish community
and its leadership should:
1. Recognize and agree upon the
urgency of addressing the
polarization of issue.
2. Feel a sense of responsibility,
as well as the motivation, for
beginning to solve the polarization
3. Learn that dialoguing within
a pluralistic model works and
begin to feel competent to set up
such models.
4. Begin to generate solutions
to the polarization issue.
To meet the above goals several
activities were initiated including
a Critical Issue Conference at-
tended by 254 participants
representing 23 states at which
representatives of Judaism's four
religious movements sat down
together for two days to directly
address crucial divisive issues.

more. Women in this category
proudly wear a ruby in the eye of
the Lion of Judah pin, an interna-
tionally recognized symbol of
women whose personal commit-
ment to the annual campaign
signifies a gift of $5,000 or more.
The ruby was chosen as the stone
to add for a commitment of
$10,000 because the most famous
reference to women in Jewish
scriptures, the Eyshet Hayil
(Proverbs 31) says, "A woman of
valor seek her out, for she is to
be valued above rubies."
According to Gross, the 1987
Ruby Ten Campaign will be the
most innovative and exciting yet,
as the Ruby Lion gets ready to
roar again. To honor these
women, Gross plans to invite all
women who make a personal com-
mitment of $10,000 or more to the
1987 Women's Division Federa-
tion/UJA campaign to her Fort
Lauderdale home for brunch on
Wednesday, Jan. 21.

Lauderdale Lakes/Lauderhill
Community-Wide Breakfast January 4
For the first time in the history
of the Federation/UJA, the con-
dominiums of the Lauderdale
Lakes and Lauderhill areas will be
joining together to promote unity
and support for the 1987 Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign on Sunday, Jan. 4 at 10 a.m.
at Temple Beth Israel, 7100 W.
Oakland Park Blvd.
The event, chaired by Jack Hoff-
man and Robert Maze of
Somerset, is also a first, because a
$54 minimum family commitment
to the '87 campaign is being
"We feel that a $54 minimum
commitment is not too much to
ask of our neighbors of the
Lauderdale Lakes/Lauderhill con-
dominiums," the chairmen stated.
"People should put the amount in
perspective. It is only a little more
than $1 per week to help our
Jewish brethren in Fort Lauder-
dale, in Israel and in 38 lands
around the world."
Serving on the Lauderdale
Lakes/Lauderhill UJA Committee
are these dedicated individuals:
Pearl and Sid Karpas of Lauder-
dale Oaks; Sam Scheinhorn of
Castle Gardens; Phil Truelick of

dominiums; William Woliver of
Hawaiian Gardens; and Louis
Yahm of Cypress Case A, B, C, D,
and North.

tion, contact Sandra Brettler at
the Federation, 748-8400. Don't
miss this opportunity to be in on a
first-time event.

the Young Business and Profes-
sional Division of the Jewish
Federation, is pleased to an-
nounce that the Division will hold
its first social fund-raiser on
Saturday evening, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m.
at the Hobday Inn, Fort Lauder-
dale Beach.
"We're calling this event a
'Penthouse Affair' because we
want people to realize that it's go-
ing to be an elegant evening of
socializing, dancing and dining,"
Rosenfeld stated.
A couvert of $25 per person will
include a sumptuous buffet dinner
plus entertainment.
Special guest speaker will be
local young leader, Jo Ann Levy.
Participants will be asked to con-
sider their commitment to the
1987 Jewish Federation/United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
"Many people involved in our
group have never before been in-
volved in a Federation or Federa-
Jo Ann Levy
tion programming," Rosenfeld
stated. "This affair will introduce
them to the wonderful work
At the Penthouse Affair...
Federation does through the
dollars raised through UJA."

Woodmont UJA Awards Breakfast Held
Over two dozen UJA volunteers
assembled in the Woodmont
Country Club on Nov. 11 to
receive awards for the 1986
Federation/UJA and to kick off
the upcoming UJA campaign for
M. Morris Wittenberg, one of
the fund-raising co-chairmen,
opened the meeting with a plea to
exert more effor? this year to
raise sufficient funds to meet the
enormous needs of Jews
throughout the world.
Joel Reinstein, immediate past
president of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale,
was the keynote speaker. Reins-
tein, who just returned from a
UJA Mission to Israel, spoke
about his impressions of the coun-
try in his many contacts with
Israeli citizens. He stressed the
fact that the economic conditions
in Israel are not good; many
young people are leaving their
native country for purely
economic reasons and that the
funds raised in the United States
are sorely needed and of great im-
portance. Reinstein urged the
group to visit Israel to show the
Israelis "that we support them
not only financially, but with our
presence in our land."
Kenneth B. Bierman, Federa-
tion executive director, made the
presentation of the annual awards
and urged the men to make every
effort to secure the help of addi-
tional volunteers to become active
in the community campaign.
Co-chairman, Louis Colker
delivered the motzi and introduc-
ed the speaker.

nounced that this Rally will kick

port for Israel and for the work of

Giving Appreciated Assets
Editor's Note: The following
article is a service of the Founda-
tion of Jewish Philanthropies
Committee of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale,
Jacob Brodzki, president.
Major changes in the tax reform
law will affect all of us beginning
Jan. 1, 1987. The fact that rates
are coming down does not
automatically mean that everyone
will pay less tax, but it does mean
that the value of certain deduc-
tions will be worth less after 1986.
Now is the perfect time to con-
sider the tax effects of the new
legislation upon your charitable
In almost every instance, it is
safe to say that a charitable con-
tribution in 1986 will be worth
more in tax savings to an in-
dividual than a contribution made
in subsequent years. This is true,
of course, because the rates will
be lower after 1986; therefore, the
tax saved as the result of a
charitable contribution will be at a
lesser rate. For example, if an in-
dividual in a 40 percent tax
bracket gives $1,000 to charity in
1986, that contribution actually
costs the individual only $600
($1,000 gift less $400 tax savings).
The same gift in 1988 may cost
the individual $720, as the tax sav-
ings on the contribution would
have to be calculated at a rate of
28 percent. Furthermore, effec-
tive in 1987, taxpayers who do not
itemize their deductions will not
be entitled to a charitable con-
tribution deduction at all. It is
easy to conclude that individuals
are well advised to make
charitable contributions in 1986.
Another aspect of the Tax
Reform Act of 1986 withdraws
favorable tax treatment of
longterm capital gains. Beginning
in 1987 they are to be treated and
taxed as any other ordinary in-
come. This change in the tax law
will undoubtedly encourage many
individuals to sell in 1986 those
securities on which they have a
capital gain and that they do not
wish to hold for a very long term.
Individuals contemplating sell-
ing securities to avail themselves
of the favorable capital-gains
treatment in 1986 would be better
off to donate the securities to
satisfy their charitable obliga-
tions. The individuals would
benefit in two ways: by taking ad-
vantage of the greater savings
available by making a charitable
contribution in 1986 and by escap-
ing the payment of any tax
associated with the long-term
capital gain.
If you donate property with a
fair market value that is more
than your cost basis, it is entirely
permissible to deduct the fair
market value as your contribu-
tion, providing the following re-
quirements are met: (1) the con-
tribution is of capital gain proper-
ty that would result in a capital
gain if it were sold on the date of

ISRAEL SIGNED a contract with the U.S. to undertake
research on anti-ballistic missile defense systems, a project
related to the Reagan Administration's Strategic Defense In-
itiative (SDI), commonly known as Star Wars. The contract,
reported to be in the neighborhood of $5.1 million, is the first of
its kind entered into by the U.S. with a non-NATO country. It was
signed by David Ivri, Director General of the Defense Ministry,
and Gordon Smith, deputy director of the SDI Organization.
THE AMERICAN Society for Technion-Israel Institute of
Technology (ATS) has reported a national campaign achievement
for fiscal 1985-86 exceeding totals of every previous year in its 46

cash collections and 63.5 percent in pledges.

Federation to Instill
Presence in Coral Springs
For the past number of years,
residents of Coral Springs did not
know that there was a Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale to serve their needs
for community and social
Something new this year to help
instill the Federation presence, is
being tried by the Federation and
two of its major beneficiary agen-
cies the Samuel and Helene
Soref Jewish Community Center
and Jewish Family Service.
The Center, located in Planta-
tion, offers a multitude of pro-
grams and services for members
of all ages. However, Coral Spr-
ings residents found that the
Center's Perlman Campus is too
far for them to travel to enjoy
these programs.
In conjunction with the Federa-
tion, the JCC and Rabbi Mark
Gross of Temple Beth Orr, Coral
Springs, are getting together to
try and combine their youth pro-
gramming so that Coral Springs
Jewish youth may benefit. Temple
Beth Orr currently has a very ac-
tive youth group and the JCC
hopes to reach out to these
Jewish Family Service, whose
office is located in the Federation
building at 8358 W. Oakland Park
Blvd., also has had a location pro-
blem with the residents of Coral
Springs. This year, JFS has an-
nounced that a case worker will be
available for those residents of
Coral Springs. Plans are under-
way to have a case worker staff an
office in Coral Springs.
"We want to instill a Federation
presence in Coral Springs,"
stated Brian J. Sherr, Federation
president. "By offering the
residents the programs and ser-
vices of the JCC and JFS we hope
that they realize they are not
forgotten and that the Federation
feels that they are part of our
North Broward 'family.' "
For further information, con-
tact Melissa Martin, CRC direc-
tor, at 748-8400.
Let's use a simple example to il-
lustrate this tax saving technique.
Mr. Jones, who is in the 40 per-
cent tax bracket, would like to
donate $2,000 to die Jewish
Federation in 1986. If he writes a
$2,000 check to the Federation,
his out of pocket expense will be
$1,200 ($2,000 less tax savings of
$800 $2,000 x 40 percent). Instead
of writing a check, Mr. Jones
could donate 40 shares of General
Electric stock currently valued at
$50 per share, which he purchased
for $20 per share in 1980. Because
he has owned the stock for more
than six months, he can donate
the stock and take a charitable
contribution of $2,000 without
having to recognize a capital gain
on the stock. Mr. Jones is not out-
of-pocket any money at all! He
paid $800 for the stock, and he
saved $800 in taxes by giving it
away. Moreover, Mr. Jones has
benefited the Federation by
$2,000, which provides the com-
munity with needed goods and
Let's assume that Mr. Jones
would prefer to keep the stock
because he thinks it will be worth
more in the future. After donating

the stock, he could buy 40 new
shares of General Electric for $50
per share or $2,000 plus commis-
sions of about $100. He is now out
of pocket $1,300 ($2,100 for the
new stock less $800 tax saved by
the gift of the old stock). Would he
be better off if he had written a
check to the Federation for $2,000
and been out-of-pocket only
$1,200 less $800 tax savings)?
Perhaps not, because Mr. Jones
now has a $50 per share basis for
this stock, and should he subse-
quently sell the stock for an
amount in excess of $50 per share,
the capital gain (which after 1986
will be taxed as ordinary income)
will be measured by the amount he
receives for the stock in excess of
$50, not the $20 he originally paid
for the old stock.
In our example, Mr. Jones has
found a way to satisfy his
charitable obligations and, at the
same time, escape the $30 per
share capital gain on his General
Electric stock. A gift of ap-
preciated property will still be
allowed after 1986, but the sav-
ings may be at a reduced rate and,
beginning in 1987, the amount of
the appreciation must be con-
sidered as a tax preference for
purposes of calculating the Alter-
native Minimum Tax.
Remember three things: you
must transfer the stock to charity.
If you sell the stock and donate
the proceeds, you will not ac-
complish the desired results. You
must have owned the stock for at
least 12 months. This does not
work for stocks that have not ap-
preciated in value.
This is only one of the various
tax aspects of charitable giving,
but the benefits may be enjoyed
by many, including the charities
which you may wish to benefit.
Now is the time to think about
ways in which the government
may help you fulfill our charitable
If you have questions pertainir
to your personal situation,

the same message: give now while
the giving is good.
As President Reagan prepares
to sign the tax-overhaul bill into
law today, charitable institutions
are telling millions of con-
tributors, some in not-so-subtle
terms, that its provisions, effec-
tive next year, will make dona-
tions more costly on an after-tax
"TAX ALERT," blares the
headline of a flyer from Wellesley
College, replete with a six-column
table indicating that the after-tax
cost of giving could rise as much
as 44 percent under the new law.
The brochure suggests four ways
alumnae can accelerate contribu-
tions to Wellesley this year, so
that gifts can "generate
significantly greater savings than
the same gift in 1987."
A four-page glossy solicitation
from Smith College tells potential
contributors that the tax bill
"sends a clear message: Now may
be a more advantageous time to
give than in subsequent years."
Radcliffe College suggests gifts in
1986 "while tax rates are higher
and the after-tax cost to the donor
is lower."
"Charities are urging their peo-
ple to look down the road and try
to bunch together a couple of
years worth of gifts," said Conrad
Teitell, a New York tax lawyer
and adviser to charitable
organizations. "All across the
country we see that they are step-

The intensified fund-raising
drives represent one of the first
side-effects of the massive tax-
overhaul bill, a giant package of
lower tax rates and fewer
loopholes. In coming years, its
myriad changes in tax law are ex-
pected to cause many such ripples
in society some foreseen, other
Charities whose donations come
primarily from wealthy, high-tax-
bracket individuals may have the
most to lose after 1986. A memo
sent to nonprofit groups by the ac-
counting firm of Arthur Andersen
and Co. points up the problem: "A
major donor cannot ordinarily be
hurried into making a major gift
decision. However, these are not
ordinary times. The present time
... may be the last opportunity
donors have to get the govern-
ment to pay as much as one-half
the cost of the lifetime charitable
Representatives of nonprofit
organizations, however, say they
don't want to unduly pressure
"We are trying to get word to
them that it makes sense to sit
down with their tax advisers and
think through their philanthropic
pattern," said Samuel F. Babbitt,
vice president for development at
Brown University. "Obviously we
add that we hope they will think of
Brown when they do it."
The tax bill does not change the
basic deduction for contributions
to charity, which lets taxpayers
subtract their gifts of cash proper-
ty from income as an itemized
deduction, reducing the amount of
income subject to tax. But its
lower rates mean that deductions
would save less in taxes than they
do now.
For example, a married tax-
payer with adjusted gross income
of $65,000 would save 38 cents in
taxes for every dollar donated to a
charity this year. In 1987, the
same taxpayer making the same
gift would save 28 centers per
donated dollar.
The bill also would end the
deduction for charitable contribu-
tions taken by taxpayers who do
not itemize their deductions. Non-
profit organizations lobbied hard
to preserve the deduction for
nonitemized, but are hopeful that

WALTHAM For the second time in a month, Brandeis
University has sold stock in South Africa-related companies
found not to be in compliance with the unversity's investment
policies. The three companies whose stock sales were announced
by Brandeis president Evelyn Handler are Exxon Corp., Chevron
and Mobil Corp. The total value of the stocks is approximately
$500,000, nearly 20 percent of the university's holdings in com-
panies doing business in South Africa.
NEW YORK The manager of a top Israeli professional
basketball team has said he will appeal the International Basket-
ball Association (IBA) ban on former American star Michael Ray
Richardson. The Munich-based IBA was reported to have inform-
ed the Israeli Basketball Association that Richardson was ineligi-
ble to play in Israel.
NEW YORK The United Synagogue of America (USA), the
congregational branch of Conservative Judaism, has joined the
national crusade against drug abuse and alcoholism. Franklin
Kreutzer, international president of the two-million member
USA, called on all Conservative institutions and on the Orthodox,
Reform and Reconstructionist synagogue movements to admit
that the problem of drug abuse and alcoholism exists among Jews
and to "open the synagogue to appropriate, recognized forms of
counseling and information sharing sessions."
contributions traditionally made
by lower-income taxpayers
which tend to go to church and an-
tipoverty organizations will be
unaffected by tax considerations.
"Our contributors have been
longtime and faithful through all
sorts of economies," said Susan
Wyss, assistant director of
CARE's Washington fund-raising
But a provision in the bill affec-
ting charitable contributions by
wealthy taxpayers could cause a
reduction in donations. Now, tax-
payers can in most cases deduct
the fair market value of donated
stocks, real estate or artwork. A
$500, 000 piece of art given to a
museum, for example, can reduce
a wealthy taxpayer's taxable in-
come by $500,000 even if the art-
work was purchased for much
less. The only limit is that the
value of the deduction cannot ex-
ceed 30 percent of the taxpayer's
adjusted gross income.
Givers still could deduct the
market value of property under
the tax bill, but large deductions
might reduce their income so
much they would become subject
to the bill's new minimum tax,
which is designed to ensure that
high-income individuals pay at
least 21 percent of their income to
the government. The possibility
that a gift could trigger the
minimum tax, which curbs many
deductions, might be enough to in-
duce some individuals not to make
donations of property.
Gifts of appreciated property
are "critical" to many large
universities, said Robert Freelen,
vice president of public affairs for
Stanford University. They make
up 30 percent to 60 percent of the
value of the contributions Stan-
ford receives from individuals and
account for similar proportions
for other large universities.
"We are heavily dependent on
gifts of appreciated property, the
big gift," said Sheldon Steinbach
of the American Council on
New York's Metropolitan
Museum of Art and the Kennedy
Center here are notifying con-
tributors of the upcoming tax
changes. At the Metropolitan,
development vice president Emily
Rafferty said most of the artwork
donated to the museum is in the
form of appreciated property and
that some donors are being asked
to "take a careful look at the ad-
vantages of accelerating pledges
they have already made."
Contributors also may be urged
to give to foundations so they can
make fully deductible gifts now,
though the money would be paid
out to approved charities over the
next few years.
The Community Foundation for
Greater Washington, for example
is asking contributors to make
multiyear contributions this year,
making suggestions in later years
about where their money should
be allocated. The National
Chamber Foundation, research
arm of the Chamber of Com-
merce, also is raising funds
through a charitable trust.
Response to these and other ef-
forts probably won't be known un-
til the end of the year, when most
contributions are made. But tax
experts expect an outpouring of
cash and other forms of wealth as
taxpayers look for ways to beat
the Internal Revenue Service.
"We believe we will have an ex-
traordinary cash collection this
year," said United Jewish Appeal
President Stanley B. Horowitz.
"We believe we will collect
against past, present and future
pledges a record amount of cash
and appreciated property."

Page 12 The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale/Friday, November 28, 1986
Foundation Discusses the New Tax Law
Editor' Note: Jacob Brodzki,
chairman, and his committee gives
further insights into the new
recently passed tax laws.
What is your vision and goal
for the future of the Foundation
of Jewish Philanthropies?
It's important to first unders-
tand the role of the Foundation
within the Federation structure.
The Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale has its annual
campaign, raising money for
various Jewish needs, both in our
community and in Israel.
However, the needs of our com-
munity far exceed the income
from the campaign. The Founda-
tion helps to fulfill these needs
which the campaign dollars can-
not reach. We have a pool of funds
which are never touched and that
money is invested, using the earn-
ings to help support vital com-
munity needs.
Our goal is to reach a point
where we will have sufficient prin-
ciple within our Foundation for in-
vestment, so that if the worst
were to ever happen and we had a
zero campaign year, we would
have the financial resources to
meet all of the community needs
usually provided for with cam-
paign dollars.
In order to have millions in a
cash flow we would need millions
in principle which would require a
tenfold increase over our present
resources. It is a dream, but a
reachable one over the long term.
People can request certain
allocations from the philanthropic
fund as well. Generally, if its for a
good charitable purpose we will
abide by that request. The Foun-
dation has informed the communi-
ty, that in 1986, anybody who
creates a philanthropic fund, or
adds to their philanthropic fund
and then wants to take the princi-
ple of 1987 or 1988 for purposes of
the Federation's campaign can do
What do yon think, will be
some of the major impacts of the
new tax law on charitable
There are two approaches that
can be taken. As an example, if an
individual in the 50 percent tax
bracket made a $10,000 gift to the
Federation or to the Foundation
in 1986, they would save $6,000
on their income taxes. This makes
the net cost of the gift $6,000.
If that same individual waited
until Jan. 2, to make the same ex-
act gift, with the highest marginal
tax bracket in 1987 being 38.6
percent, the gift will only save
$3,860 in taxes or a net decrease
in tax savings of $1,160.
One of the best ways for an in-
dividual to reduce their tax bill is
still going to be through charitable
giving, either by prefunding their
annual campaign gift to Federa-
tion in 1986 or to create a philan-
thropic fund.
What is the real benefit of set-
ting op a philanthropic fund now
rather than giving a direct gift
to a specific agency?
This raises an interesting com-
parison. People have often asked
me what the difference is between
giving to the Foundation or to the
Federation. The answer is simple.
We are one. The difference is that
the Federation's campaign is the
profit side of the P and L state-
ment. The Foundation is the
balance sheet.
Endowment giving is a balance
sheet concept and when an endow-
ment is made, the principle is not
spent, only the income which is
generated by the invested princi-
ple is used. In this way, an in-
dividual, through the aforemen-
tioned "restricted fund" can use
the earnings to help year after
year, instead of all at one shot.
The Foundation encourages
people to create a philanthropic
fund of sufficient size so that the
generated income can be used for
charitable purposes for the rest of
their lives.
