BONN A survey of
10,000 West German
teenagers showed strong
prejudices against Jews and
Israel, stemming from ig-
norance. According to a pro-
fessor who conducted the
research, their level of
knowledge about Jews and
Israel is "horrible." The
survey was taken among
students aged 13-16 in the
areas of Stuttgart and Essl-
ingen. It found that 7.4 per-
cent believe reports that 5^6
million Jews died in the
Holocaust are "highly exag-
gerated." Another 14.9 per-
cent think it is not fair to re-
mind Germans of Auschwitz
because of the many
outstanding scientific
achievements of the Ger-
man people. The statement
that "Since other people
were involved in mass an-
nihilation, it is high time for
us to stop talking about the
killing of the Jews" was en-
dorsed by 32.9 percent of
the respondents.
Instrumental in helping to
raise a record 1.25 plus
million dollars for the '86
campaign, the leadership of
the Oceanside Division will
not stand on its laurels.
Determined to break the
all-time record high total of
more than $1.5 million for
the 1987 Jewish Federa-

Lewin, Federation vice
president and Division
chairman. Under the
guidance of Lewin and co-
chairman Judah Ever, the

CHICAGO (JTA) -
Vice President George
Bush declared in
November that the U.S.
and Israel "are united in
a long alliance dedicated
to insuring not a beginn-
ing but a continuation,
not the creation of the
State, but its survival."
The "sheer bottom line
consideration," he said,
"is that the U.S. needs
Israel and Israel needs
the U.S. This mutual
dependence is good, not
bad," Bush stated.
Addressing the dos-
ing plenary session of
the 55th General
Assembly of the Council
of Jewish Federations,
Bush told 3,000 Jewish
communal leaders from
North America and
abroad that this reaffir-
mation of the mutual
bond needs to be
repeated "as long as
Israel is surrounded by
those who could do her
in."
Israel's friends "have
a moral responsibility to
declare to the world
unambiguously and une-
quivocally: Israel is our
friend and ally," Bush
said.
The Vice President
was frequently inter-
rupted by applause as he
talked about U.S.-Israel
relations, the need "to
be tough in the con-
tinued war on ter-
rorism" and the ongoing

The Story Continues ...

Project an undertaking re-
quiring concerted effort.
Renewal the act of restoring
to make new.
Project Renewal began as a
dream back in the early 70's
and became a reality in 1978.
It began when 56 Israeli
neighborhoods were "twinn-
ed' with 214 American Jewish
communities.
Five years ago, the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, under the
presidency of Victor Gruman,
became active in this commit-
ment. Alvera A. Gold, com-
munity leader and 1987
Women's Division campaign
chairman, got in on the ground
floor serving as Project
Renewal chair for Fort
Lauderdale and currently ser-
ving as Project Renewal chair
for the Florida Region.
"Before Fort Lauderdale
got involved, our Project
Renewal community, Kfar
Saba and the neighborhoods of
Yoseftal and Kaplan, first had
to make a commitment to want
to get involved. You see, Pro-
ject Renewal is a 'partnership.'
We help them as they help
themselves," Alvera stated.
Before a neighborhood has
the chance to become "twinn-
ed" with the Diaspora, it must
first be judged as a desolate
area but have the desire to
want to change. The
neighborhood must also
demonstrate that it can run its
own community by choosing
representatives who will have
dialogue with the Jewish
Agency and Diaspora
representatives.
"Fort Lauderdale's Project
Renewal neighborhoods are
named Yoseftal and Kaplan.
However, we call it Kfar Saba
because the Israeli govern-
ment gave the communities
the name of the closest city,
which is Kfar Saba," Alvera
stated. "Visitors to Israel
often visit the city of Kfar
Saba and think that it is our
'adopted' neighborhood when
it isn't."
Project Renewal is a five-
year partnership whereas com-
mitments can be paid over a
period of time. Although Fort
Lauderdale's commitment is
essentially up this year, com-
mitments will be accepted
through 1992.
"Any commitment of under
$1,000 must be paid in one
year. Commitments over
$1,000 can be paid over three
years," Alvera stated.
"When we first were assign-
ed our communities, we really
had to start from scratch. We
had to teach the residents how
to deal with everyday living,
from taking care of their own
children, to how to read and
write," Alvera pointed out.
Geographically, Yoseftal and
Kaplan border on the Arab
village of Kalkilya. The
residents of the neighborhoods
were constantly being shelled
by the Arab village. Terrorists,
prostitutes and drugs in-
filtrated the neighborhood.
Because of the fact that most
children were uneducated,
they turned to a life of crime
and drugs.

Thanks to the generosity of
the Fort Lauderdale communi-
ty, as well as the communities
of South County, Boca Raton
and Orlando, our Diaspora
partners, Yoseftal and Kaplan
are now thriving areas with a
population of about 7,000. The
'undesirable' element is all but
gone.
With the dollars raised by
our community, many new
buildings and programs were
started. A program entitled,
Tehila, was started to provide
basic education for parents
who are illiterate. The pro-
gram taught the parents now
to read, write, shop and how to
take care of themselves.
Among the buildings built by
our dollars, are the Communi-
ty Center, or the 'hub' of the
community where classes in
music, choir, arts and crafts,
are taught. There is also the
newly-opened Milo, an early
childhood center, a Club for
the Elderly, a Well-Baby
Clinic, a Youth Center, a
Home Environment Center,
which was supported by our
Women's Division, and a gym-
nasium, funded by the
Woodlands Country Club
community.
"People are taught how to
teach themselves, how to use
their own resources, govern
themselves and how to be in-
dependent," Alvera stated.
"Since we became involved
with Project Renewal, children
who never passed an entrance
exam to college or the army
are passing now. Also, the
crime rate has dropped
dramatically."
When walking through
Yoseftal and Kaplan, one
notices that the residents are
not concerned with the outside
appearance of their apart-
ments. But when you walk in-
side, you notice how clean and
tidy the apartments are,
although they are very small.
"The people are very warm
and hospitable. The only lux-
ury they allow themselves is a
television because everything
else is so costly," Alvera
added.
For social services, the
residents are asked to pay
what they can so that they feel
a pride in ownership. Every
Project Renewal neighborhood
has a psychologist and
sociologist, helping to meet the
changing needs of the
residents.
"Project Renewal parents
want a better life for their
children," Alvera stated. "It's
remarkable that the children
have Shabbat services at
school and in turn, go home
and teach their parents. Its a
two-way learning street."
According to Alvera, the
Israeli government matches
the Project Renewal dollars
raised, dollar for dollar.
"Every year we meet with

representatives from the
Jewish Agency, the Diaspora,
and the Project Renewal
residents themselves to
discuss how and where the
money should be spent. We
ask the residents to prioritize
their programs and services
because who better knows the
needs of the neighborhoods,
than the residents who live
there."
Dollars raised for Project
Renewal are separate from the
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign. It's plus
giving.
"The only way to raise
money for Project Renewal is
for people to actually see it.
Once you visit, you 11 never
forget the sights and the peo-
ple who are all real, loving and
grateful."
"We must continue funding
the existing programs,"
Alvera said, "if we don't, I am
afraid that the people may
resort back to their old ways,
and that would be the biggest
tragedy of all. Project
Renewal is the most satisfying
experience of my entire life."
How can you help to keep
the dream going? By making a
separate commitment, beyond
your Federation/UJA pledge,

Federation Agencies Connection
In one of the first joint
meetings of the 1987 Federa-
tion/UJA campaign year,
North Broward County
Federation agency leaders met
with Federation officers to
promote greater understan-
ding and cooperation for the
massive fund-raising effort in
the coming months.
Sheldon S. Polish, 1987
general chairman asked
everyone to pull together as
never before and show that
Greater Fort Lauderdale's
Jewish community is united in
a common purpose to
guarantee the quality of
Jewish life. "Together, he
said, "Federation volunteers
and agency boards can ignite
the fund-raising capabilities of
our common goal.
"In order to keep our great
community of 22 separate
areas thriving, we all have to
take a long, hard look at what
each of our roles are.
Each of the Federation
agencies and beneficiaries
Sheldon S. Polish
must look at the big picture,
which not only includes their
individual operations, but
Israel and every country in the
Diaspora where Jews are try-
ing to survive."
Kenneth B. Bierman,
Federation executive director
specified various ideas on how
to become involved in the cam-
paign. He emphasized that
each agency organizes a work-
ing campaign committee, that
each board works toward 100
percent giving among its
members, that each board
helps the Federation/UJA with
its outreach activities, and that
ours becomes an ongoing
partnership.
Major agencies of the
Federation which receive sup-
port from the Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal an-
nual campaign include: B'nai
B'rith Youth Organization,
Central Agency for Jewish
Education, Committee on the
Elderly, Chaplaincy Service,
Community Relations Commit-
tee, Coral Springs Coalition,
Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies, Hebrew Day School,
Hillel Day School, Hillel
Jewish Student Centers, High
School in Israel, Jewish Com-
munity Center, Jewish Family
Service, Jewish High School of
South Florida, Kosher Nutri-
tion Program, WECARE, and
Young Leadership Program.
Young Leadership Key to Continuity
Vital, flourishing Jewish
communities can often trace
the source of their vigor to in-
formed, devoted leadership. In
time of crisis, leaders tend to
emerge from the mainstream;
in times of relative calm,
however, when the emphasis is
on maintaining the communi-
ty, leaders do not tend to come
forth spontaneously.
The continuity of Jewish
community requires that one
generation of leaders transmit
its responsibilities to the next.
But where is the "next" to
come from?
These were the words of
Brian J. Sherr, Federation
president who emphasized the
need for the young men and
women representing our 22
area communities to come
forth and take the role of
leadership. He indicated that
"Young leadership is vital to
the future growth of the
Brian J. Sherr
Jewish community at home
and overseas. If a Jewish com-
munity such as ours is to pro-
fress, it must have not only in-
ividuals interested in assum-
ing the leadership reins, but
also people who have the
knowledge and skill to lead."
"We have a vibrant growing
community here in North
Broward County our agen-
cies are being geared to serve
both young and old alike we
are indeed a full-service
Federation. But we need your
help. We need your time and
your commitment. Most of all,
we need you to join us in our
Federation/UJA team."
Our 1987 Federation/UJA
campaign is more than a drive
to collect money, central
thought that is. A campaign
educates the community about
its own needs and involves
people who might otherwise
not be aware of those needs. It
calls forth leadership and
starts people thinking and
Elanning for the future. It
uilds up the community and
creates links with other com-
munities. It strengthens our
conviction that we are one peo-
ple, with one destiny, and
gives us the means to act on

Dear Friend:
It is apparent that 1986 will see a new, radical income tax law.
Without question, personal income tax rates will be reduced
substantially perhaps as low as 27 percent. It seems most likely
that capital gains rates will increase by 35 percent! from 20
percent to 27 percent.
You, as a contributor to Federation and one who itemizes
deductions, will continue to receive in 1987 the tax benefits of
charitable giving but at a greatly reduced rate.
However, if you act now, in 1986, there is a great way for you to
receive both current tax benefits tor future charitable giving and
to get the benefit of appreciation caused by the recent
stockmarket upsurge. Your Federation provides an IRS approved
way to "bank" your charitable giving at the current beneficial tax
rates by establishing a Personal Philanthropic Fund.
The Personal Philanthropic Fund of the Foundation of Jewish
Philanthropies provides you with a proven method to accomplish
the following:
1. Receive maximum allowable deductions.
2. Pay no capital gains tax.
3. Provide tax-free investment income to the Fund.
4. Lock in current appreciation of securities.
5. Carry forward five year excess charitable deductions.
6. Have the privilege to recommend your charitable gifts for the
remainder of you and your spouse's lives.
7. Create an endowment fund in your name or in memory of lov-
ed ones.
8. Help your community here or your former community.
9. Pay no service fees for the Fund.
10. Incur no legal fees to create fund.
We suggest you consult your tax or financial advisor, or our
Foundation director Janice Salit at 748-8400 for additional
information.

Light Unto the Nations
The Meaning and Message of Chanukah
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
It was the article by Shimon
Peres in the New York Times
Magazine section of October 5,
1986 that brought to my attention
that this year marked the 100th
anniversary of David Ben-
Gurion's birth.
Peres recalled that when he
first met Ben-Gurion, he
discovered that he was a man of
few words. I recalled reading
several years ago a book of his
memoirs and was also fascinated
to learn that Ben-Gurion did not
enjoy small talk and only spoke if
he had something important to
say.
Clearly, he was totally devoted
to the Jewish people. Peres wrote
that Ben-Gurion "believed with all
the fervor of his personality that
the greatest contribution of the
Jewish people to the world lay in
the priority they accorded to
moralilty above all else in the life
of the individual and the nation."
The first chapter of his
memoirs, which was based on a
series of interviews, deals with his
opinions of the Jewish people. He
viewed the question of man's mis-
sion on earth as paramount
among Jews individually and as a
people. He believed that the
metaphysical nature of the biblical
ethic developed a universal cons-
cience in the Jew. Such a cons-
cience, he asserted, was not a
"comfortable thing to have." On
the one hand it could not be
satisfied and on the other it
created resentment among those
with lesser consciences.
Interestingly, Ben-Gurion used
the example of Jesus, whom he
felt had a universal conscience,
which in part led to his death at an
early age. Jews, he noted, have
since their exile "suffered
perpetual martyrdom."
He believed that the Jews of the
Diaspora could never be exclusive-
ly Jewish. He went so far as to
claim that they are Jewish very
little. Jews of the Diaspora live in
a permanent "condition of exile."
They are in a never-ending strug-
gle to preserve their Jewish iden-
tity in the face of the pressures of
assimilation.
He described the American Jew
as being a split person. On the
High Holy Days and when involv-
ed in Jewish communal life, he is a
Jew. The rest of the time he is liv-
ing the life of any other American.
He even contended that the obser-
vant Jewish is living as a non-Jew
most of the time. "At worst, his
Jewishness is held against him,
minimal though it be at best, it
counts for little in his daily life."
Obviously, Ben-Gurion's solu-
tion to the problem is aliyah. Jews
should come to Israel. Only in
Israel can the Jew avoid the ghet-
to or assimilation. Being Jewish in
Israel is as natural as being Greek
in Greece, he explained.
Assimilation appeared of great
concern to him. He stressed that
where Jews are not persecuted,
"an increasingly high number
vanish, not dramatically but
passively, passing into an
anonymity born of lack of
conviction."
He concluded that there can be
"no higher Jewish ideal than
creating from this bare, besieged
little land a rich and enduring way
of life that in its plentitude will
never stop searching for new
areas of endeavour but that will
serve as a model to inspire
humanity everywhere."
A young girl once asked Ben-
Gurion what was the day in his life
that caused him the most satisfac-
tion. He replied, "What is
satisfaction? We cannot be
satisfied. If you are satisfied, you
begin to be pampered, to be lazy;
you cease to create, to struggle, to
believe."

Jews the world over are
celebrating Chanukah, which
means inauguration, dedication
and, or, consecration. It is also
known as "Chag Urim" or
"Festivities of Light."
The meaning is both religious
and secular. The story tells us that
a miracle happened, that after the
occupants of our ancient land
were driven out by our heroic
Maccabees, a small container of
sealed, pure and sanctified olive
oil, untouched by the unclean
hands of the pagans and idolaters,
oil enough to burn one day, burn-
ed for eight days.
But the miracle was far greater
and more meaningful. Light
prevailed over darkness, our
heroes overcame the tyranny of
the Greek-Syrian occupants and
our national independence, pride
and dignity were once more
restored. It was a fight of few
against many, of oppressed
against tyrants, righteous against
wicked, good against evil.
Monotheism and the Jewish way
of life prevailed over paganism
and idolatry and, the most impor-
tant, against decaying influences

of the Jewish Hellenistic
collaborators.
There is a beautiful parallel
throughout our Jewish history
since then, running through the
Spanish Inquisition where Jews as
then, preferred death over aban-
doning their faith.
In the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising,
Jews fought with their bare hands
against the crudest enemy,
holding out far longer than the en-
tire French Army, not for the
sake of saving their lives, they
were already condemned by our
Polish neighbors and an entire
hostile, indifferent world. They
fought to save our honor and
human dignity, to at least die as
free people.
In our modern days, since the
free State of Israel was reborn
history repeated itself. Few
fought heroically against blood-
thirsty Arab hordes determined to
push us into the sea.
The struggle is not over yet, and
Israel and the Jewish people are
still facing the mortal threat of an-
nihilation by the unholy alliance of
anti-Semites of both right and
left, of all shades and colors.
As then, we will triumph over
our enemies, and so will the glory
and achievements of Israel for all
times!
Israel gave us, Jews, back our
pride, to walk straight once more
with no need to bow our heads in
shame, to kneel before anyone.
Israel gave us back our pride
and human dignity, and a special
meaning to our old-new holidays.
So let us dedicate and con-
secrate our lives to strengthen
Israel, our beautiful Jewish way of
life, and aspire to be a light unto
nations.

GENEVA (JTA) The Inter-
national Red Cross Movement ap-
pears to have erected a perma-
nent barrier against recognition
of Israel's Magen David Adorn
(Red Shield of David) as a
humanitarian agency by its deci-
sion to change its official title to
the International Red Cross and
Red Crescent Movement. Israel
and Jewish organizations have ob-
jected vigorously.
The Red Crescent is the Red
Cross equivalent in Moslem coun-
tries, just as the Magen David
Adorn is in Israel. The decision to
incorporate the Red Crescent was
endorsed without a vote by
delegates from more than 120
governments and 137 national
societies attending the Interna-
tional Conference of the Red
Cross here, a quadrennial event
Pinhas Eliav, the Israel govern-
ment delegate, said restriction of
recognition to Christian and
Moslem emblems means that
Israel is excluded from the
various international societies
which coordinate aid for victims of
natural disasters and armed con-
flict all over the world. He main-
tained that the Magen David
Adorn, which sent observers to
the conferences, fulfills all criteria
for full membership, except for its
emblem.
Israel has been seeking full
membership, to no avail, since the
Red Cross Movement was
reorganized in 1948-49, in the
aftermath of WWII.
Eliav, lodging a strong dissent
from the conference consensus,
noted that the six-pointed Star of
David was symbolic of Jewish
history, creativity and Jewish suf-
fering, as well as being a religious
symbol, as are the cross and
crescent.
"To our regret, we encountered
a lack of readiness and
misunderstanding and even the
same political hostility which was
and still is manifested against the
emancipation of the Jewish people
as a nation," Eliav said. Non-
recognition of the Israeli symbol
violates the principles of the inter-
national humanitarian movement,
he said.
He warned that "The revised
statutes will further aggravate
the situation by crystallizing even
more the imposition of two
religious and civilizational
emblems on our global
humanitarian movement."
Another strong dissent was
voiced by Daniel Lack, represen-
tative of the World Jewish Con-
gress, which has observer status
at the conference. "The use of the
emblems associated in the eyes of
many with the two great religions
of Christianity and Islam en-
shrines the religious polarization
that propels the emblem crisis into
unprecedented proportions of
gravity," he said.
"The joint and exchange use of
the Red Cross and Red Crescent
in the very title of the move-
ment. .renders permanent an
anomaly which contradicts the let-
ter and the spirit of the Red Cross
philosophy by the reciprocal and
mutual reinforcement of these
two signs as the symbol of
religious polarization and ex-
clusivism," Lack said.
The conference also changed its
title to "The International Con-
ference of the Red Cross and Red
Crescent."

The Darker Side of Diplomacy
The release of American David Jacobsen, held hostage in em-
battled Beirut for more than 17 months, was a heartening
development in a continuing story that has been filled with
heartbreak.
The joy surrounding Jacobsen's release by the terrorist group
Islamic Jihad was tempered by the harsh reality that six other
American hostages, as well as citizens of other nations, remain at
risk.
Therefore, the reluctance of Jacobsen and that remarkable
Anglican envoy, Terry Waite, to go into any details of the events
leading to release is quite understandable.
So, too, is the silence emanating from the Reagan administra-
tion as to the diplomatic steps already taken and those con-
templated on behalf of the hostages. After they are all free, we
will hear their stories.
There have been enough hints, however, from enough different
directions to piece together a picture of Syrian, and perhaps even
Iranian, involvement in the delicate negotiations that led to
Jacobsen's freedom. The specifics of that involvement remain
question marks, as they must, but it seems to have been there.
In Syria's case, one can speculate as to why the government of
Hafez Assad chose this particular moment to act positively in the
hostage crisis. Is it purely accidental that the release of Jacobsen
came on the heels of Great Britain's diplomatic war with Syria?
Or was Assad trying to make up some lost ground and save a little
international face by helping terror's victims?
The United States has been reluctant to openly criticize Syria as
a friend of terror. The hope that Syria might respond to this
diplomatic delicacy by helping free Western hostages from their
Lebanese imprisonment has been dashed repeatedly until now.
Syria, it seems, has responded much more positively to the
diplomatic "stick" than to the "carrot." Events seem to indicate
that when Syria wants to initiate a dialogue with the terror
groups holding the hostages, it can do so. The connection between
Assad and the Islamic Jihad seems very real indeed.
Perhaps Britain, by acting forthrightly in the presence of con-
vincing evidence of Syrian complicity in terror operations, has
blazed a new diplomatic path one well worth following.

Memories From '66 to '86...
Friday, December 12, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 5
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Editor's Note: The following
information is compiled from
the archives of the Jewish
Floridian of Greater Fort
Lauderdale.
Watch out Fort Lauderdale
... The Jewish Federation has
come of age. From fund-
raising to programming, the
Federation is becoming a force
to be reckoned with in North
Broward County.
By mid-February, 1977, the
campaign was at an all-time
high of $1.2 million, 30 percent
over the 1976 campaign total
for the same period.
Each area in the community
raised more money than ever
before. Heading the list were
the communities of:
Woodlands $400,000; Points
of America $131,000; Gait
Ocean Mile- $220,000; Palm-
Aire- $155,000; Inverrary-
$70,000; Century Village-
$36,000 and Coral Springs-
$16,500. We've come a long
way.
The Federation sprouted
new wings with the formation
of an Attorney's Division
under the leadership of
William Lefkowitz and Brian
J. Sherr. Also, the Federation
organized the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies under
Arthur Faber.
Highlighting the 77 Federa-
tion activity list was the for-
mation of a Kosher Nutrition
program for the elderly
residents of North Broward.
We also hit the 'big time'
when Federation leaders Mar-
tin Kurtz, Rebecca Hodes,
Alvin Capp and Irving Geisser
did a live television broadcast
on Channel 10 to discuss com-
munity issues.
Our "man" in '77 was Alvin
Gross, named Federation
"Man of the Year," for his
leadership and guidance.
And the community
responds to the 'new look' of
the Federation. Over 550 at-
tend a UJA event in Century
Village while we send 73 on
the Prime Ministers Mission to
Israel.
The Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale has
come of age.
Pictured planning the All-Star Mission Reunion are, from left,

dinator. Not pictured is Mission chairperson Barbara Wiener.
All-Star Mission Reunion
Scheduled for Jan. 18
Washington Connection II Jan. 27-28
The Fort Lauderdale Jewish
community has the unique op-
portunity to participate in
UJA's Washington Connection
II Mission, in Washington
D.C.'s luxurious Westin Hotel.
Beginning Tuesday evening,
Jan. 27, and continuing to
nightfall on Wednesday, Jan.
28, Mission participants will
enjoy a wide variety of
memorable experiences that
will be treasured for years to
come.
The program will include a
gala dinner party at the Israeli
Embassy where you will meet
Jewish members of Congress,
greet the leaders of
Washington's dynamic Jewish
community and listen to Meir
Rosenne, Israel's Ambassador
to the United States, discuss-
ing issues affecting the
strategic relationship between
the two countries.
At other seminars, par-
ticipants will receive a behind-
the-scenes in-depth analysis of
Middle Eastern issues and a
look at the Washington
political scene.
At a Capitol Hill luncheon,
Senate leaders will address the
group on issues affecting the
American Jewish community.
A minimum commitment of
$10,000 to the 1987 Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign will allow you to
participate in this remarkable
mission.
For further information,
please contact Sandy
Jackowitz, Mission coor-
dinator, at 748-8400.
An All-Star Mission Reu-
nion, is being planned for all
participants who have been on
a Federation Mission. The reu-
nion, complete with Israeli
food, song and dance,
memories and snapshots of
their trip will be held from 3-5
p.m., Sunday, Jan. 18 at the
Samuel and Helene Soref,
Jewish Community Center,
6501 W. Sunrise Blvd.,
Plantation.
"We wanted to do
something like this for all the
mission participants so they
could get together, swap
stories, share memories and
get enthused about the
Federation's Missions pro-
gram," stated Barbara
Wiener, Federation Missions
chairperson. "An ideal result
would be to stir up excitement
and encourage the rest of the
community who have not been
on a Federation Mission, to
look into one which suits
them."
A day of fun and good cheer
is planned. Children are
welcome. If you have par-
ticipated on a Federation Mis-
sion prior to October of 1983,
and would like to be a part of
this All-Star Reunion, please
contact Mission coordinator
Sandy Jackowitz at 748-8400.

that belief.
Let's all heed Brian Sherr's
words and answer the ques-
tion, "Where are the next
leaders to come from." They
will come from us, and they

will give all it takes to meet the
challenge, for we can do no
less, for in our generation, as
in every generation, we are
the ones to make the
difference.
UJA Hatikvah Mission Offers Singles Opportunity to Explore Israel
Masada, the Old City of
Jerusalem, the red deserts of
the Negev, and the moun-
tainous Galilee will be among
the highlights of the Seventh
National United Jewish Ap-
peal Hatikvah Mission to
Israel this February.
Open to single men and
women between the ages of 24
and 40, the mission will pro-
vide its participants with the
opportunity to experience
firsthand the special qualities
of Israeli life, said Victor Gelb
of Cleveland, Ohio, Chairman
of the UJA Overseas Pro-
grams Department, who an-
nounced this mission.
Co-chaired by Esther Fink of
Chicago and Ronald Kramer of
Tidewater, Virginia, the mis-
sion is scheduled for Feb. 8-18,
1987.
"The UJA Hatikvah Singles
Mission is a special opportuni-
ty for single men and women
to meet each other and Israelis
in an exciting, purposeful
series of events," Ms. Fink
said, "Hatikvah is known for
the breadth of experience it of-
fers to Jewish singles," Mr.
Kramer added. "Over 3,000
persons have participated in
UJA Singles Missions in the
past eight years," Kramer
said, "and this promises to
have the best programming
ever."
Participants will be briefed
by representatives of UJA's
beneficiary agencies the
Jewish Agency for Israel and
the American-Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee and
will visit absorption centers,
settlements within Israel's
pre-1967 borders, Youth aliyah
centers for troubled teenagers
and Project Renewal
neighborhoods where UJA
funds are applied.
The Hatikvah travelers
"hatikvah" means "the hope"
will' visit the Old City of
Jerusalem, the Knesset, and
the Western Wall, and will ex-
tlore the artists' colony of
fad, Old Jaffa and the Dead
Sea. They will meet with
soldiers, students and
homemakers, as well as politi-
cians, businessmen and
educators, and will see history
as uncovered at archaeological
excavations.
Mission participants may ex-
tend their stay or stop off in
Europe, or both, before their
return to the United States.
For information, please con-
tact Sandy Jackowitz, Mis-
sions Coordinator, at 748-8400.

CRC Focuses On
U.S.-Israel Releations
The Community Relations
Committee (CRC) of the
Jewish Federation was recent-
ly joined by Roy Rosenbaum,
director of Policy and Develop-
ment for the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) and Martin Merzer,
senior writer for the Miami
Herald, who served as Middle
East correspondent for the
Herald stationed in Israel from
1984-86.
Both speakers updated the
CRC members on the recent
elections in Congress and how
the new congressional
representatives will respond to
U.S.-Israel related issues.
It was stated that for the
most part, the 100th Congress
will be positive towards
Israel's agenda as it relates to
the U.S. government. Five
new congressmen have as
good a record on Israel as their
predecessors. Eight new
senators also have strong pro-
Israel stands.
Discussion focussed on
foreign aid and arms sales and
the coalition government in
Israel.

Publicity Chair
PEOPLE NEEDING PEOPLE
Barbra Streisand's popular
song could be the theme for the
1987 campaign. Indeed, it could
be the theme of any campaign of
any year. The funds raised by
Federation/UJA are used to help
people. "Your dollar may change
some person's life, it may enhance
some person's life, it may benefit
some person's life. Every dollar
you give affects the life of another
person." So spoke Bobi Klote, of
New York, chairperson-elect for
National UJA Women's Division,
when she addressed a group of our
campaign workers on Nov. 19, at
a day long seminar held at the
JCC.
In 1986 the National United
Jewish Appeal/Federation cam-
paign raised $695 million. Across
the country women's campaigns
raised $110 million. Obviously,
women contribute a great deal of
money, no longer can this be con-
sidered "plus giving." Therefore
it is imperative that we, as the
people who give and collect these
funds, be aware of where they go
and what they accomplish. Just
over half of the $695 million will
go into the UJA. The rest remains
in the United States to benefit our
local communities.
In Greater Fort Lauderdale, the
needs are growing at a faster pace
than we are able to meet them. As
the umbrella organization for the
Jewish community, our Federa-
tion is responsible for many peo-
ple, from very young pre-
schoolers to the frail and elderly.
One of the our largest
beneficiaries is the Samuel and
Helene Soref Jewish Community
Center. It provides a wide range
of cultural, educational, and social
programs for people in all walks
of life. On the 16 acre Perlman
Campus at the JCC, you will find
an elderly day care program, call-
ed the "Gathering Place." A
"Kosher Nutrition" program
which serves about 1,000 hot
meals a week (located at two
separate sites). There is a
"WECARE" program to help
those in need, and another pro-
gram that serves our local Jewish
deaf population. The Hebrew Day
School, housed on the JCC
grounds, gives a Jewish education
to over 200 youngsters. On an
average day, at the center, a
visitor will see people ... small
children skipping alongside a
great grandparent with a walker,
young mothers heading for an
aerobics class and teenagers
throwing a basketball into the air.
There are Ulpan classes, Yiddish
classes, cooking classes, art
classes, and so much more.
The Central Agency for Jewish
Education (CAJE), is the educa-
tional arm of our Federation. We
are helping to support people in
the Judaica High School, Hillel
and BBYO, as well as other pro-
grams, which are a continuing in-
vestment in the future.
Jewish Family Service, another
of our vital beneficiary agencies
answers the call for counselling
and helps people learn to cope
with a variety of personal pro-
blems. JFS offers a respite care
program for care-takers of people
who are homebound. It serves
Jewish people in both North and
South Broward County with a
wide range of counselling services
from divorce and separation, child
and wife abuse, drug and
alcoholism, to depression and at-
tempted suicide. If the doors to
the Soviet Union should open and
we could welcome Russian Jews
to Broward county, JFS is the
agency that would undertake the
resettlement of these people. Do
you have an aging parent in a nor-
thern community? Our Jewish
Family Service is part of a nation-
wide Elderly Support Network.
The CHAI program will keep in
contact with people through local
agencies in various cities
throughout the country.
Obviously, the programs men-
tioned above are merely outlined.
Nevertheless it is easy to see that
the people who benefit the most
are ourselves. This is our com-
munity and when we help our
community we help ourselves.
Yet, we are still Jews and as Jews
we belong to a larger Jewish com-
munity of Jewish people.
The United Jewish Appeal,
established after World War II,
takes care of our people in need of
help throughout the world. In
places that some of us do not even
know exist, agencies of UJA are
actively seeking to save Jewish
lives. HIAS, the Hebrew Im-
migrant Aid Society, which
brought most of our parents or
grandparents to the United
States, is still hard at work mov-
ing people to safer places. HIAS
rescued the Jews from the DP
camps after the Holocaust, the
Yemenites, Moroccans, Cubans,
as well as the Hungarians after
the revolution. When the doors
opened for the release of Russian
Jews in the late seventies, HIAS
was there. HIAS moves people
from a place of stress to a place of
safety. As a matter of fact, HIAS
is the agency that the United
States government turns to
whenever there is a refugee mov-
ing problem. This was the very
agency which assisted the United
States in saving so many people
from Vietnam and Cambodia.
Another beneficiary agency is
NYANA, the New York Associa-
tion of New Americans. NYANA
receives a portion of money raised
by UJA because New York has
agreed to absorb 50 percent of the
Jewish migration to the United
States. During the Russian Jewish
immigration, a few years ago,
people who were ill, disabled,
elderly and otherwise
unemployable were brought to
New York by HIAS and assisted
by NYANA to establish new lives
as Americans in a free society.
JDC is known by people the
world over. wherever there are
Jews in distress, they know "The
Joint." The American Joint
Distribution Committee is very
important indeed. It has been in
existence since 1914, long before
UJA itself. With the exception of
the free western world, Jewish
people have never lived comfor-
tably in other countries. JDC is
always there. Founded in
"Palestine" to help the Jews who
lived in the Land of Israel in 1914,
this agency was born surrounded
by hostile Arabs, Turks and even
the British. The JDC, which in-
itiated the community center
system used in Israel as a basis for
Project Renewal, and the Malben
elderly care projects, has recently
taken on a new cause. It has
started an educational pilot pro-
ject for learning disabled children.
Tested before they are even three
years old, these young people will
benefit directly from dollars rais-
ed and given to the JDC for their
help.
In Ethiopia, during the famine,
JDC provided medical aid, ex-
plained nutrition, gave out seed,
and taught people how to plant in
new methods. The Ethiopian
government agreed to the JDC in-
volvement after 40 percent of the
grain and food collected by other
agencies and groups rotted on the
docks for lack of proper distribu-
tion. In the Gondar region, where
approximately 8 to 10 thousand
Jews still remain, 90,000 Ethio-
pian people are still being helped
by JDC. There are 'Joint' facilities
in Arab countries such as Algeria
and Tunisia. The only religious,
educational and social (that is:
Jewish) meeting places available
to Jewish people who live in these
and other Arab countries is pro-
vided by JDC. Afganistan, China,
Burma are included on the JDC
map. even if there are only five
Jews, 'Joint' is there to help.
work of the JDC.
One other area of concern for
the JDC is ORT. The Organization
for Rehabilitation through Train-
ing receives $4 million a year from
the JDC budget to help administer
vocational schools in many parts
of the world. Therefore part of
our UJA dollars go toward fur-
thering the work of ORT in train-
ing people for more productive
lives.
The Jewish Agency for Israel is
funded by UJA through the
United Israel Appeal. It is careful-
ly monitored by the government
of the United States and so we are
among the only Jews in the free
western world whose country per-
mits tax deductions on donations

dustrial skills.
Youth Aliyah, founded by
Henrietta Szold for the rescue of
children orphaned by the Nazis,
cares for young people in need.
Although still supported by
Hadassah, most of the money
needed for Youth Aliyah is sup-
plied by UJA through the Jewish
Agency. At present there are
2,500 Ethiopian children, mostly
orphans, in Youth Aliyah villages.
They must be brought into the
Israeli mainstream and have very
special requirements. These
children suffer from lingering
health problems, sharp cultural
conflicts and the identity crisis
WOMEN'S DIVISIONQ
In Poland, as in most of the rest
of Eastern Europe, the people are
very old. Since they are remnants
of the Holocaust, whose only con-
tact with the Jewish world is
through the 'Joint,' almost
everyone is over the age of 75.
Last year on a UJA mission to
Warsaw, we were their guests at
a kosher meal provided to them by
JDC. It was gratifying to see what
our own dollars could accomplish.
In Hungary, there is a Jewish
seminary under the auspices of
JDC, which trains rabbis for all of
the countries behind the iron cur-
tain. Surprisingly, Russia permits
two people a year to train at this
school. Hungary even has one
Hebrew Day School that is sub-
sidized through JDC. Indeed any
Jewish activities that exist for
Jewish people in the communist
world are part and parcel of the
to Israel. Immigration and absorp-
tion in Israel, higher education,
rural settlements, project
renewal, social welfare, and youth
services are all on the agenda of
the Jewish Agency.
This year rural settlements are
in crisis. Because of the severe
austerity measures imposed to
curb Israel's runaway inflation
many farmers cannot repay last
year's debts. They are unable to
meet the prices by new competi-
tion in the Common Market. It is
necessary for people in the vital
settlements on Israel's borders to
develop new industry and skills so
that they do not fail. The Jewish
Agency, in cooperation with the
Israeli government, has establish-
ed a special assistance program.
Additionally, each region will
have a Vocational Training Unit
within the Rural Settlement
evoked by being black and
religious in a white and largely
secular Jewish society. We are
also caring for Israeli-born
students who are of disadvantag-
ed homes. Youth Aliyah is learn-
ing new teaching methods, and
revamping its program to stress
education for values and ethics.
To paraphrase Streisand, "Peo-
ple who help people are the
luckiest people in the world!" In
Israel, today 600,000 people
receive our help ... through the
JDC, an additional 500,000 people
receive our help ... plus all of the
people who receive help from us
in our own community. The
dollars we pledge to our 1987
Federation campaign will make a
difference for people all over the
world .. which certainly says
something for us!!
Fort Lauderdale Leaders Join National
Women's Division on 'Ruby' Mission
AJvera Gold, Deborah Fuller
Hahn, and Esther Lerner
spoke with Shulamith Shamir,
wife of Israel's Prime
Minister, Yitzhak Shamir, dur-
ing the recent UJA National
Women's Division Major Gifts
"Ruby" Mission to Israel. The
group, composed of leaders
from 13 American Jewish com-
munities, raised more than a
half-million dollars for Federa-
tion/UJA campaigns to benefit
Youth Aliyah, Project
Renewal, immigrant absorp-
tion, rural development and
social service programs in
Israel as well as Jewish com-
munity services at home. Mrs.
Shamir thanked the mission
members for their "well-
known devotion to Israel," and
said, "We belong to the same
family."
Mission participants studied
Project Renewal programs for
children in a visit to
Jerusalem's Musrara
neighborhood. There the

remarkable, but we still
have a way to go to reach
our goal. Each time I visit

there is a permanent change
for the better. Project

Polish summarized saying

"Jews in Crisis Around the

munity members have in their
Jewish heritage and are look-
ing forward to an even greater

Cash Collection Team
Calls for $1.75 Million Drive
Hundreds of men and
women are expected to take
part in the year-end cash col-
lection drive to convert 1986
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal pledges into dollars by
Dec. 31.
The hard-hitting effort
which plans to achieve the
$1.75 million cash necessary to
help meet the '86 goal commit-
ment to Federation/UJA agen-
cies and beneficiaries, locally,
in Israel and around the world,
will be under the direction of
Federation officer Gladys
Daren, chairman, Treasurer's
committee.
Daren stated, "Our basic
philosophy is that a pledge is
merely a promise to pay and
that only cash can be utilized in
a meaningful way by our peo-
ple. A positive cash attitude
with the ultimate goal of bring-
ing our community to a 100
percent collection rate is the
only attitude we can afford."
The chairman referred to a
recent article appearing in the
Israel press which read in part,
"... In Israel, electric bills are
up 53 percent; water bills, 82
Percent; transportation cost,
00 percent; not to mention

leaps in the price of basic food
staples. And increasing wage
cuts and freezes,, unemploy-
ment and mandatory govern-
ment dismissals which is caus-
ing new, tough economic pro-
grams with cuts in health,
education and social programs,
affecting hundreds of
thousands of brethren in the
Jewish Homeland." "These
words alone show how urgent
the needs truly are, and why
cash is vital if we are to help
our brothers and sisters in
their time of economic
burden," said Daren.
She emphasized that her
committee of campaign
leaders representing major
areas of the North Uroward
County community, are work-
ing diligently to accomplish
this life-saving, life-giving
task.

Nuremberg Trials'
kOth Anniversary
Recalls Mad Dream
By ARNOLD AGES
London Chronicle Syndicate
As the State of Israel
prepares to try the
suspected Nazi concentra-
tion camp guard, Ivan Dem-
janjuk, for crimes allegedly
committed at Treblinka in
1942 and 1943, the world is
commemorating the 40th
anniversary of the trials
which judged the people
responsible for the construc-
tion of the whole Nazi con-
centration camp system.
The trials which took place at
Nuremberg are especially signifi-
cant in the history of
jurisprudence and for the
testimony they offer on the facts
of the Holcoaust which were
documented in terrifying detail
during the months the pro-
ceedings went on. The evidence
offered in those assizes con-
stitutes an ample response to the
current crop of Holocaust
debunkers and their neo-Nazi
revisionist doctrine.
NUREMBERG was chosen as
the venue for the trial because it
was there that the Nazis pro-
mulgated their odious anti-
Semitic laws and where they held
huge party rallies to celebrate the
modern barbarism they were soon
to usher into the world.
Many of those who bore the
heaviest responsibility for Nazi
crimes did not sit in the dock at
Nuremberg. Hitler, Goebbels and
Himler committed suicide before
the Second World War ended. Ley
managed to do the same thing in
his cell just before the trial was to
begin.
Reinhard Heydrich, head of the
dreaded SS security police, was
killed by partisans in Prague in
1942. Adolf Eichmann, the Him-
mler trainee who oversaw the
deportation of millions of Jews to
the death camps, and Martin Bor
man, Hitler's private secretary,
avoided Nuremberg by making
their way out of the country
through methods still unknown.
Twenty-two defendants were
nonetheless arraigned at
Nuremberg in 1946. They includ-
ed Herman Goering, Hitler's
second-in-command, Karl
Doenitz, supreme commander of
the German Nazy, and Hans
Frank, the Nazi governor of
Poland. Also prominent were
Wilheim Frick, the "protector" of
Bohemia; Hans Fritzsche, a Goeb-
bels appointee who directed Ger-
man Radio; Walter Funk, presi-
dent of the Reichsbank; and
Alfred Jodl, head of the German
Army.
RUDOLPH HESS, Hitler's
one-time private secretary and
deputy leader, also faced his
judges at Nuremberg. He is the
only one of the defendants who re-
mains to this day incarcerated in
the prison at Spandau, having
been found guilty and sentenced
to life imprisonment.
Ernst Kaltenbrunner, the
Gestapo chief, was there at
Nuremberg, along with Wilheim
Keitel, chief of the general staff.
So was Constantin von Neurath,
president of Hitler's secret
cabinet council; Franz von Papen,
a vice chancellor of Germany in
the 1930s, also sat with
the defendants.
Nazi foreign Minister, Joachim
von Ribbentrop; Alfred
Rosenberg, the Nazis's aeologue;
Fritz Sauckel, director of slave
labor operations; Hijalmar
Schacht, one-time minister of
economics; Baldur von Shirach,
head of the Hitler Youth; Arthur
Syss-Inquart, the Nazi ruler of
Holland; Julius Streicher, editor
of the anti-Semitic Der Stuermer,
and Albert Speer, the Munitions
Minister, rounded off the roster of
the accused.
Hitler's old pals committed suicide,
fled, one still in prison.
Nazi soldiers in the burning streets of the Warsaw Ghetto during
the revolt of April, 19*3.
Those responsible for ad-
ministering the trials not only
guaranteed that justice was done,
but ensured that it was seen to
have been done. Despite the
malevolent assertions of Neo-Nazi
revisionist writers that torture
was used to extract confessions
from the defendants, the hard
evidence shows that meticulous
care was taken to provide fair
treatment to all the accused.
IT WAS one of the supreme
ironies of the trial that many of
the defendants had themselves
assembled the documentation
which was used to convict them.
The Nazis' mania fordisciplined
record-keeping and punc-
tiliousness in statistical matters
produced a body of evidence so
damning that, once it was in-
troduced at Nuremberg, it became
clear that several of the accused
had signed their own death
warrants.
It is estimated that the Allies ac-
quired 485 tons of written
documentation bearing on their
guilt. It included minutes of
meetings at which aggression was
plotted, detailed reports of
Einstagruppen "success" in kill-
ing Jews and, in the case of Hans
Frank, an 11,000-page diary in
which the Nazi governor of oc-
cupied Poland minutes his
ruthless plans to murder the coun-
try's entire Jewish population.
Not all of the evidence was used
competently. During the examina-
tion of Goering, Robert Jackson,
the American judge, erred on at
least two occasions. Once he ac-
cused Goering of being a member
of the Council for the Defense of
the Reich; Goering easily showed
him that the relevant document on
which Jackson's accusation was
based referred to another council
and that, furthermore, it had
never been convened.

'The Eternal Jew,' a propaganda documentary film considered
the 'Mein Kampf of the cinema during the period of the anti-
Semitic Nazi regime.


40th Anniversary of Nuremberg
Trials Recall Hitler's Mad Dream
Continued from Pafe 10
ON ANOTHER occasion, Goer-
ing demolished Jackson when the
latter linked Goering's name to a
document which purportedly call-
ed for the "liberation of the
Rhineland." Goering haughtily
pointed out that the original Ger-
man called merely for the dredg-
ing of the Rhine river.
Goering did not, however fare
so well with David Maxwell Fyfe,
the British advocate, who
established his complicity in the
murder of allied servicemen, the
violation of Holland and Belgium
and the extermination of Euro-
pean Jewry.
That latter event occupied much
of the tribunals' deliberations. It
is instructive to note that, while
defendants such as Goering
denied knowledge of our respon-
sibility for the Holocaust, others
such as Frank and Speer
acknowledged direct or indirect
responsibility. It did not occur to
any of the Nuremberg an.icaed to
deny the fact of the annihilation of
six million Jews.
HANS FRANK, the man who
presided over the country where
most of the murderers of Jews
took place, Poland, experienced a
religious conversion during his in-
carceration. This prompted him to
display a candor not found in some
of his colleagues. "Athousand
years will pass," he said, "and this
guilt of Germany will not be
effaced."
Frank's diary provides chilling
evidence of that guilt. "As far as
the Jews are concerned, they
must be done away with in one
way or another ... We must an-
nihilate the Jews ... We cannot
shoot or poison those 3.5 million
Jews, but we shall nevertheless
take measures which lead to their
annihilation."
Rudolph Hess, a witness who
testified on behalf of Ernst
Kaltenbrunner, was the comman-
dant of Auschwitz. In a flat and
unemotional voice, he told the
tribunal how he had been able per-
sonally to supervise the murder of
two-and-a-half million people. He
indicated with pride how the
Auschwitz gas chambers were
made more effective than those at
Treblinka. His solution? The in-
troduction of fast-acting Cyclon B
gas.
Ann and John Tusa, in their
book on Nuremberg, say of Hess:
"He was pleased to say that,
thanks to his .impeachable ar-
rangements, few of the victims
had ever realized they were about
to die: notices gave the impression
they going to a delousing or
showers."
THE GAS chambers were, of
course, only one Nazi method for
killing Jews. Nazi executive
squads, the Einsatzgruppen,
followed regular German Army
troops into the Soviet Union in
order to search out and murder
Jews.
Otto Ohlendorf, the officer who
combined Einsatzgroup D, told
the court that his unit had killed
90,000 people in 1942. "After the
registrations," he said, "the Jews
were collected at one place, and
from there they were later
transported to the place of execu-
tion, which was, as a rule, an attck
ditch or a natural excavation. The
executions were carried out in a
military manner by firing squads
under command.'
One of the most emotional
moments of the trial occurred
when films were shown depicting
the savagery of the death camps.
They provided revoltingly graphic
shots of the victims of Maidanek,
and the British projected on to the
screen in court the vision of the
hell they had found at Bergen
Belsen.
At first, some of the defendants
refused to look at the films. Then,
one after another, they cast
fleeting glances at the flickering
images of human bodies in various
stages of decomposition, at
mounds of shoes, glasses and
other personal items which the
Nazis had so neatly arranged as
their owners were being gassed.
THE DEFENDANTS realized,
in the face of the shatterin
evidence of their culpability, that
their only defense could be ig-
norance. In order to exculpate
themselves, they laid blame on
Hitler, Himmier, Eichmann and
Borman all conveniently absent
from the court room.
The luckiest man at Nuremberg
was Albert Speer, Hitler's per-
sonal architect and munitions
minister. At the trial, he adopted
a contrite behavioral mode and
condemned Nazi atrocities. He ac-
cepted indirect respnsibility for
them, but subtly pointed out that
he was not aware of them. He fur-
ther impressed the judges by ad-
mitting that he could have been
aware of them had he wanted.
Speer was released in 1966 and
wrote several books about his
wartime experiences. He also ask-
ed forgiveness from the Jewish
people.
In 1984, Matthais Schmidt, a
West German researchers,
published a book which revealed
for the first time that Speer had
kept a personal diary during the
war. The diary revealed that he
knew a lot more about Nazi
policies towards Jews than he ad-
mitted at the trial. The diary was
never introduced at Nuremberg;
had it become part of the public
record, it is doubtful whether
Speer would have escaped the
hangman.
As a Writer, Herzl
Predicted Great
Growth of Israel
By YITZCHAK DINUR
Mark Twain's uncomplimentary
description of the Holy Land in
"the Innocents Abroad," 1867,
gave no indication that he thought
this primitive province of the Ot-
toman Empire might ever im-
prove let alone become a modern
country. Theodor Herzl, the
founder of modern Zionism,
writing science-fiction novel 86
years later, had quite a different
opinion, even though the actual
conditions in Palestine had not
changed.
In his book "Altneuland" (OW-
Newland), published in 1902,
Herzl foretold the establishment
of the Jewish state, at a time
when the Jewish population of the
Land of Israel was less than
20,000.
Herzl was a talented and well-
known feature writer and foreign
correspondent for a Viennese
newspaper, based in France. A
contemporary of H.G. Wells and
Jules Verne, two writers who also
forecast the future. Herzl avidly
read the latter's technology-
oriented futuristic novels, which
appeared regularly once a year
and were eagerly awaited by the
French public.
Herd's own futuristic theme
was the revival of the Jewish na-
tion in its own old-new land and
the use of science and technology

CHICAGO An appeal to the Jewish people to avoid a split
within its ranks over religious and secular issues was issued by
Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres. He urged that "a civilized
way be found to deal with religious differences" that have become
exacerbated in Israel and the United States. Addressing more
than 8,000 Jewish leaders from North America and abroad at the
55th General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federation,
Peres said Jewish life is marked by variations, with different
strains and different beliefs between and among the religious and
secular elements in Israel and the U.S.
PHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia Chapter of the
American Jewish Committee has joined with the Order of the
Sons of Italy in America in protesting ethnic slurs against Italian-
Americans that have appeared in the Cheater County Press
newspaper.
KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y. Jewish membership ranks in
Cults continues at an annual rate of 12 percent among such
groups as the Hoonies and Hare Kriahnas. Jewish women were
told to be on guard against Cult activities, now more dangerous
than ever since these organizations are operating with a low pro-
file. These words came from Rabbi Maurice Davis, Jewish Com-
munity Center, White Plains, a specialist on Cults, to 2,000
delegates attending the Biennial Convention of the Women's

there and worked with group
leaders to develop many a suc-
cessful project and interest for
area youth.
The doctor has also made great
contribution in another field
courting the interest of both youth
and adults in his favorite sport,
tennis. During the 1969 Mac-
cabeah Games in Israel, Dr.
Rabinovitz, representing the U.S.,
competed in tennis and won a gold
medal. Along with many other
visitors to Israel during those
years, that visit inspired him to
promote the game and help
popularize it as a major youth ac-
tivity in the country. The idea also
caught on in Canada and Great
Britain. Through continuing con-
tributions from organizations in
the U.S., Israel and these coun-
tries, today there are eight dif-
ferent Tennis Centers in our
Jewish Homeland. Dr. Rabinovitz
is proud to say that these Centers
have become popular gathering
places for Israeli youth and since
their inception, the crime rate has
been substantially reduced in the
country.
Dr. Rabinovitz's wife Sharon is
also a "doctor" holding a' PhD
in Clinical Psychology and work-
ing part time at the Florida
Medical Center. The Rabinovitzs'
are the parents of Cynthia, just
seven months old. Residents of
Plantation at present, the family
will soon be moving a little farther
away to Weston. "But we'll
always remain close to JCC," says
the doctor!

Dr. Harold Rabinovitz, member
of the JCC board has been "Cam-
paign Capital Funds" chairman
for the past year and a half.
"It has been a worthwhile effort
for our major project," says the
doctor. "We have succeeded in
making our building plans for the
Jacob and Peggy, Ludwik and
Pola Brodzki Early Childhood
Center on the JCC campus more
of a reality." The doctor and Dr.
Jim Phillips together with Anita
Perlman who chaired the Dinner-
Dance at the Inverrary Country
Club honoring the Brodzkis Nov.
16, and JCC president David
Schulman, express their gratitude
to all friends and committee
members who helped make the af-
fair so successful.
The committee, under both doc-
tors' leadership, expects to com-
plete the campaign and raise the
additional funds needed to begin
building the Jacob and Peggy,
Ludwik and Pola Brodzki Center
this year.
Considering himself a Florida
native, the doctor spent his early
childhood years in Pittsburgh,
moving to Florida with his family
when he was five years old. He
returned North to earn his B.A. at
Princeton (cum laude) majoring in
history and philosophy of science.
Returning South, Dr. Rabinovitz
enrolled at the University of
Miami to study medicine, even-
tually specializing in dermatology.
He continued his training at the
N.Y.U. Medical Center and spent
five years in fellowships related to
skin cancer. Today, he is con-
sidered one of the top doctors in
this area for his knowledge and
his expertise in performing the
"Mohs Microscopic Controlled
Surgery" technique for skin
cancer.
In addition to his busy practice,
Dr. Rabinovitz is an assistant
Clinical Professor of Dermatology
at the University of Miami School
of Medicine at Jackson Memorial
Hospital.
Beginning his close association
with Soref JCC through his work
on its Perlman Campus, Dr.
Rabinovitz was a youth advisor

Page 14 The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale/Friday, December 12, 1986
Bush Avows U.S. Israel Independence
Continued from Page 1 ef-
fort of the U.S. to press the
Soviet Union about the
rights of Soviet Jews. He
emphasized that American
support for Israel is
unswerving.
As an example, he noted
the unremitting hostility
against Israel in the UN by
those he termed "racists
and bullies." "You would
think that being the target
of such obvious hostility,
Israel would have been
ejected from the UN by
now," Bush said. "But of
course, she hasn't, and the
reason reminds us of how
important it is for friends to
make their friendship and
their intentions clear."
"Israel is still in the
U.S.," he said in a slip of the
tongue, which was greeted
by laughter, including his
own. "I mean the UN," he
said, "because America has
made it clear this Ad-
ministration has made it
repeatedly, abundantly
clear that if Israel is
thrown out of the UN,
America leaves too. If
they're out, we're out; if
they get the boot, our boots
are made for walkin'."
But expressing frankness
and candor, he said that
"over the past quarter cen-
tury or so, America's pas-
sion to defend Israel has
sometimes seemed to
manifest itself in a kind of
coldness or rejection of all
things Arab. And they have
sensed this, and this has not
been helpful, and it has not
been kind."
Bush affirmed that the
U.S. is no enemy to the
moderate states. "We are a
friend of Egypt, where
President (Hosni) Mubarak
and his people, with great
courage and sense, made it
clear that they need to
preserve the peace with
Israel. King Hussein of Jor-
dan continues his tough and
lonely search for a way to
start negotiations and
this is helpful, and deserv-
ing of our praise. And the
courage Shimon Peres
showed when he met with
King Hassan of Morocco
is another cause for hope."
In discussing terrorism,
Bush said that one element
in the fight against "this
viciousness and bloodlust"
is to step up intelligence and
analysis. He said that
America's intelligence
system "is the best ever. In
the past year alone, we were
able to stop 90 planned at-
tacks against U.S. citizens
before they happened. But
we can do better."
He did not give specific in-
formation about the planned
attacks, and, unlike Israeli
Foreign Minister .. Peres,
who addressed the GA did
not call for international
cooperation in confronting
terrorism on a global scale.
On another issue, the
separation of church and
state, which Bush referred
to as "a source of anxiety"
to the Jewish community
and to others, he said: "I
would fiercely oppose the
obvious or subtle establish-
ment of any state religion. I
would oppose any merging
of church and state. I em-
brace, respect and support
the wall that separates
them, and I would never
tear it down nor allow it to
erode."
But, he added, "the
separation of church and
state does not, and cannot,
be allowed to apply a hostili-
ty of the state toward
religion ... The church and
the state are neighbors."
Bush said that Americans
must remember not to judge
each other "or to speak
disparagingly of each
other's belief. In a
pluralistic democracy,
you've got to remember to
give each other a little
spiritual breathing room.
Religion isn't a problem in
America, but intolerance
sometimes is. And this is
something we all have to
watch out for."
On the issue of human
rights, Bush assured the
assembled Jewish leaders
"that the U.S. has been br-
inging up the problem of
Soviet Jewry with the
Soviets in Geneva" during
the ongoing talks. He also
stressed that President
Reagan "pressed the
Soviets on this cause" when
he met with Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev in
Iceland.
And Bush added, "We will
continue to press. The
human rights issue is now a
permanent part of the
U.S.-Soviet agenda. They
don't like that a lot, but
that's the way it's going to
be until they do what's
right."
The most dramatic por-
tion of the closing GA ses-
sion was the appearance of
Natan Scharansky on
satellite television from
Jerusalem. This first
satellite telecast from Israel
was brought through the
auspices and services of the
World Zionist Organization
Education Department.
Scharansky, smiling and at
ease, issued an impassioned
plea for continuing efforts
to pressure the Soviet
Union to allow Jews to im-
migrate to Israel. He warn-
ed the audience not to be
beguiled by the release of a
few prominent refuseniks as
signifying a more liberal
emigration policy. It was
tokenism, he explained.
He ponted out that Gor-
bachev was engaging in
clever public relations in
dealing with the West and
this, therefore, made Gor-
bachev even more
dangerous than his
predecessors. Scharansky
said the change in the out-
ward appearance of respon-
siveness by the USSR to
human rights pressure by
the U.S. was due to the
Soviet Union's need for
more trade and credits from
the U.S.
"Realistically, the situa-
tion of Soviet Jews is worse
than ever," he said. "The
number of Jews allowed to
emigrate today is the lowest
in 20 years. The number of
Prisoners of Zion in the
camps and the refuseniks in
the cities is bigger than
before. There are 400,000
Jews waiting to come to
Israel. That's why we must
not be deceived by the new
image Gorbachev is presen-
ting to the West."
The former refusenik also
urged that more American
Jews visit the Soviet Union
to establish contacts with
Jews there to obtain infor-
mation about the situation
and let them know that they
are not alone in their efforts
to achieve freedom.
In an unscheduled
dramatic addendum to the
session, Bush asked to be
allowed to address Scharan-
sky directly over the
satellite television. The Vice
President recalled his
friendship with Scharansky
and his wife Avital and his
visits to Israel and declared
that the U.S. will not cease
in its efforts to speak out on
behalf of Soviet Jewry both
privately and publicly.
"There is room for quiet
negotiations and quiet
diplomacy," Bush said.
"But we will speak out
publicly against the oppres-
sion of Soviet Jews. So nave
no fear that we are going to
resort to solely quiet
diplomacy. I wanted to
reassure you because of
your eloquent plea with
everyone you come in con-
tact with that we will do
both."

A Miracle of Survival in the South Bronx
flu Miracle of Intervale Avenue:
The Story of a Jewish Congrega-
tion in the South Bronx. Jack
Kugelmass; with photographs by
the author. Schocken Books, 62
Cooper Square, New York, NY
10003. vi plus 231 pages. $17.95
Reviewed by Nathan M.
Ksgsnoff
The Intervale Jewish Center of
the South Bronx was established
in 1917- It might seem unusual to
describe a synagogue's activities
on its 69th anniversary, but the
Intervale Jewish Center is a very
unusual synagogue. It is situated
in one of the worst slums in the
world a neighborhood called
Fort Apache by the local police. In
fact, it is an area that a German
film crew considered a suitable
representation of Dresden after
its devastating bombing in World
War II.
The Intervale Jewish Center
still functions as an Orthodox
synagogue. This is all the more
surprising considering the fact
that even during its Jewish hey-
day 30 to 50 years ago, the Bronx
was more a center of secular
Judaism than of Orthodoxy.
Perhaps, the Center's popular
claim to fame might well be that
Herman Wouk laid the building's
cornerstone while still a child of
five. Wouk's father was a founder
of the congregation and his grand-
father was its rabbi for many
years.
True, the synagogue no longer
has a minyan every day, but it
does have services every Saturday
and Sunday. The "miracle" in the
book's title refers to the fact that
despite the age of the con-
gregants, someone always seems
to arrive to replace a member who
has died or moved away.
The author of the book, an an-
thropologist, has described a
fascinating tale. He has poignant-
ly portrayed the cast of characters
who make up the minyan. The
author himself is part of the
miracle. Having come at first to
study this unusual synagogue for
research purposes, by coincidence
he replaced a regular congregant
who had just died. So fascinated
was he by the experience, he con-
tinued to attend services for five
years.
The book is primarily an in-
depth study of a small group of
men and women who continue to
live in the neighborhood and com-
pose the membership of the
Center. Of the regular attendees,
almost all are quite elderly; three
are black Jews. Most have lived in
the Bronx for 50 or 60 years. Most
readers will be very much surpris-
ed by the author's findings.
The congregants are not poor.
In fact, some are quite comfor-
table and even own property.
They feel quite safe where they
are, although they do not take any

No Greater Joy
The day I lost my glasses my
Heart sure got a clout!
I'd put them in my pocket but

My loss seemed doubly cruel:
Without my reading glasses how
Was I to pray in Shul?
I rushed back to the bank where I

chances. They do not remain in
the neighborhood because they
have nowhere to go. All are con-
stantly urged by their children
who live elsewhere to move. By
persisting they are asserting their
independence. The author sug-
gests that essentially they are all,
each in their own way, survivors.
Each congregant openly declares
that old age must be accompanied
by dignity and freedom and this is
the place where they can most
easily preserve both. Perhaps
there is also the hidden feeling
that if they can survive in such cir-
cumstances, they may be able to
cheat death itself, and if not cheat,
at least to delay it as long as
possible.
The account is well written. In
many instances, the author has
merely transcribed the conversa-
tions that were recorded. The il-
lustrations provide an additional
dimension to the narrative
those of the individuals reveal
their strength of character and
personality; those of the
neighborhood are stark and
distressing.
Anyone interested in American
Jewish history, sociology, or con-
temporary events will find this
volume informative and
fascinating. Perhaps there is a
larger lesson to be learned here as
well. In the Goldene medineh of
America there are Jews in the late
20th century living under condi-
tions worse than those found in
almost any area in the world. And
they are surviving. They would
probably thrive if not for their ad-
vanced age. Are they perhaps a
poignant example of Jewish sur-
vival of the last two thousands
years. And should some of our
fears for the Jewish future in
America be somewhat allayed?

1-95 Custom Home Builders and Estate
Home Builders Introduce New
Single-Family Home Models At Woodmont
TAMARAC, Fla. Two new luxurious single-family home
models have opened for inspection in the Palm Ridge section of
Woodmont Country Club, a private residential community in
Tamarac.
The Bentley, a four-bedroom, two-and-one-half-bath single-
family home by 1-95 Custom Home Builders Inc., and the Vista, a
three-bedroom, two-and-one-half-bath single-family home by
Estate Home Builders Inc., are the new models now open for
viewing.
"We have only 64 lots left in Woodmont," points out Kay
Parenti, community manager for Woodmont. "Because we are so
rapidly approaching a point where we will be completely
developed, we expect a strong demand for these lots, and the
custom home designs they can accommodate."
The 1-95 Custom Home Buiulders' model, the Bentley, has a
roomy interior design. A magnificent living room with an optional
bar and a large family room offer plenty of space for entertaining
or family enjoyment. Vaulted ceilings and large windows add to
the spacious atmosphere. The Bentley also features a luxurious
bathtub in the master bedroom and a cozy breakfast nook in the
kitchen.
The Bentley has a continental feel with arched windows and
French doors that open onto the patio from both the family room
and living room.
The Bentley also has a two-car garage large enough to store a
golf cart.
"There is a lot of space in the Bentley," says Pat Luca, presi-
dent of 1-95 Custom Home Builders. "This home has been design-
ed specifically for the individual who wants plenty of living space
and who wants to capitalize on the good life in Florida."
The Vista, Estate Home Builders' new model at Woodmont,
is uniquely designed. Skylights, a clerestory window in the great
room and sliding glass doors take advantage of Florida's sunny
weather and create an open feeling.
The master bedroom includes spacious walk-in closets and an
enormous bath.
The Vista's kitchen, with a Jennaire range in the center,
features a breakfast area, a desk, and a roomy pantry.
The Vista's two-car garage also has a golf cart storage area
and a utility closet conveniently located between the garage and
the kitchen.
"This is an ideal Florida home," observes Estate Home
Builders' Moe Krakower. "The design of the Vista is well-suited
for people who want plenty of space, enjoy entertaining and
either have a family or enjoy having guests. The master-bedroom
area alone makes the Vista worth seeing."
I-95's Bentley model and Estate Home's Vista model are open
daily for viewing. Sales information about the Bentley, Vista and
other homes in Woodmont is available through the Woodmont
Sales and Information Center, 305/721-2300, 7801 N.W. 78th
Street, Tamarac. The Sales and Information Center is open daily
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

TEL AVIV U.S. Deputy Undersecretary of Defense Dov
Zakheim believes Israel should abandon plans to build its second
generation jet fighter plane, the Lavi. Instead, he said Israel
should use the funds, mainly U.S. military assistance grants, to
beef up its navy with more missile boats and submarines.
JERUSALEM Israeli travel agents are offering a civil mar-
riage package trip to Cyprus in cooperation with the Cypriot
authorities for couples who cannot marry in Israel because of
religious restrictions. The package includes travel expenses, mar-
riage fees and a week's room and board for $887, Haaretz
reported. The travel agents deal with the paper work. According
to Cypriot authorities, about 300 civil marriages are performed in
the town of Papos alone each year.
TEL AVIV The trial of John Demjanjuk, alleged to have
been the notorious Treblinka death camp guard known as "Ivan
the Terrible," will open in Jerusalem on Jan. 19. Ukrainian-born
Demjanjuk, 66, is the first suspected Nazi war criminal extradited
to Israel for trial. The former resident of Cleveland, Ohio, was
brought to Israel earlier this year.

The 'Phoenix Tree' by Percy Peretz Kaye
..
By PERCY PERETZ KAYE
The monument of my idea and
design, the tree, symbolizes the
Jewish People who like the legen-
dary mythical bird, arose from the
ashes of near extinction of the
Holocaust to a new life in a free
state of Israel. Two inserted cap-
sules, one with ashes from
Auschwitz the other with earth
from the Holy Land, placed in the
base of the monument underlines
it's meaning. The six broken main
branches are the six million mar-
tyrs and heroes. The flames
engulfing the trunk, are the
flames of the Holocaust and at-
tempted destruction of our peo-
ple, by total genocide. From the
flames emerges an outstretched
hand through a barbed wire Star
of David, with a tattoed number
67890, belonging to a living per-
son, my wife Dora Kaye. It cries
to a deaf world for help and
justice. It shows the world, that
the Holocaust was real, despite
Herzl Predicted Great
Growth of Israel
Continued from Page 11
in the development of Eretz
Israel. He develops this theme in
his novel of two fin-de-siecle in-
tellectuals (one of whom is a Vien-
nese Jew like himself) who, disap-
pointed with the world, retire to a
well provisioned island away from
it all. On their way they see the
holy land which they discover to
be nothing more than a stagnant
social and spiritual backwater.
Twenty years later, on their way
back to Europe, they find that the
reborn Jewish state has
transformed the country into a
paradise.
Herzl claimed that his predic-
tions for 1923 would be developed
by Jewish industry and in-
telligence on the basis of ideas
already extant. It is hard to decide
whether he was hedging his pro-
phecy with prudence or whether
he really expected the Jewish
state to be established within 20
years.
Scientists at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem managed
to eradicate malaria just a little
later than the time that Herzl
predicted, and now the univer-
sity's Kuvin Institute for Tropical
and Infectious Diseases is helping
fight resurgent malaria
throughout the world. The
Hebrew University of Jerusalem
.which he had called Zion Univer-
sity) was dedicated in 1918,
though it was opened only in 1925.
As Herzl predicted, Israel's
development has really been close-
ly connected with hydraulic
engineers, who first drained the
swamps for Jewish settlements,
then constructed underground
pipelines to move the water,
devised new irrigation methods,
developed water reclaiming
systems and are now tackling
Israel's water shortage, resulting
from several years of drought,
which he did not foresee.
Herzl predicted that Haifa,
because of its magnificent bay,
would become the country's main
port, a prediction that was proved
correct in 1920.
Uncannily, he correctly foretold
the exploration of the Dead Sea
for its potash and the manufac-
ture of other fertilizers, par-
ticularly phosphates. However,
his oil prediction has turned out
something of a will-o-the-wisp. He
believed that chemical industries
would be among the first to be
developed, but while the Depart-
ment of Chemistry was the first to
be established at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem, actual
chemical industries, apart from
the Dead Sea Works, began spr-
inging up only after 1948.
One fascinating idea he put for-
ward was that beneath all city
streets there should be tunnels
containing pipes for utilities such
as water, sewage, gas, electricity,
telephone and anything else
suitable that might be invented.
This idea would simplify connec-
ting these utilities to new
buildings and would obviate the
need to tear up the roads
whenever a fault developed or
new connections were to be made.
Unfortunately, this suggestion
has not come to be, and the roads
in Israel are constantly being dug
up.
Herat's prediction of the Dead
Sea Canal, designed to by-pass the
Suez Canal, and generate elec-
tricity, almost came into ex-
istence. Construction was actually
begun, but was stopped because it
was finally shown to be
economically impractical.
Considering that he was writing
before futurology had developed
methods of technology assess-
ment, in fact before futurology
and technology assessment ex-
isted as disciplines at all, and that
Herzl only had his general educa-
tion and good sense to rely upon,
his successful predictions were
astounding.

tries of denial. Although the tree
was almost consumed by the fire,
it miraculously survived, spread
new branches, twigs and leaves.
The Jewish People were determin-
ed to live and create its genius re-
juvenated. On the apex of the tree
is a Menorah, a symbol of
Judaism, and the free State of
Israel, our pride hope and joy. It
stands on guard to prevent
another Holocaust, ready to con-
front all our enemies, of the past,
present and future. The other side
of the monument, has the names
of the most infamous death
camps, and mass grave locations.
I honor and glorify the heroic
defenders, ghetto fighters, par-
tisans, soldiers, liberators and
Righteous Gentiles. They all
sacrificed so, that the Jewish Peo-
ple live. A great honor goes to the
survivors, the real heroes, that
