responsive to the needs of

must be reached to aid in

What distresses the chair

that, because of the economy,

to people wfl] have to be

Everyone must understand
that responsibility lies with all

ty," be said. The tax reform
bill will be devastating to all
charities, so new means must
be utilized which will benefit
both the Federation/UJA cam-
paign and the donor. Despite a
cash crunch, much can be ac-
complished through gifts of
trusts and endowments; some
may prepay pledges at least
through 1988; gifts can be
made of appreciable property
and stocks.
There will be an increased
effort to reach every member
of the Jewish community, with
added emphasis on reaching
those who have never given!

man of the 1987 Pacesetters

Their ultimate victory was a tri-

Chanukah is the Jewish Festival
that commemorates that victory. For
eight nights, commencing with the 25th
day of Kislev.a candle is lit in every

Federation Executive Director
Reports on Chicago Meeting ...
Renewing The Spirit
Editor'$ Note: The following
article appeared in the
December k issue of the Jewish
World following the Federa-
tion leadership delegation's
return from the 55th CJF's
General Assembly.
The executive director of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale has returned
from the Council of Jewish
Federations General Assembly
in Chicago inspired by the con-
ference's theme of "Klal
Yisrael," which he believes
defines perfectly what the
Fort Lauderdale Federation is
seeking to accomplish in
Broward County.
"Trying to unite a rapidly
growing Jewish community in
the Sun Belt is very difficult,"
said Kenneth Bierman, the
professional head of the Fort
Lauderdale Federation. "We
have seen our population grow
rapidly, and our campaign
totals rise from $1.8 million in
1979 to $6.1 million in 1986.
But as we grow, we need to
reach out to all sectors of the
Jewish community, and firmly
establish Federation as the
central address of the Jewish
According to Bierman, "One
of our major problems here is
getting our people many of
them relatively new arrivals
from other places to identify
with this Jewish community.
Many people came from New
York, Boston, or Chicago, and
even if they were involved in
Jewish life in those cities, it is
a slow process to get them to
relate to the Jewish communi-
ty here.
Bierman said he found two
of the many seminars that
were offered at the CJF to
have been especially helpful to
what Federation is seeking to
accomplish in Fort Lauder-
dale; a seminar on long-range
planning for federations, and
another on federation-
synagogue relations.
Bierman said of the seminar
on long-range planning; "We
have just begun the long-range
{banning process, and thus by
earning something of the ex-
periences of communities that
already have experience in this
field, we can both avoid some
of the mistakes they made, and
in general not have to reinvent
the wheel. We are looking to
both CJF and UJA to help us
as we undertake this com-
plicated process."
Bierman said that the Fort
Lauderdale Federation plans

developments in the Jewish

Noting that he speaks fre-
quently at synagogues
throughout the area, Bierman
remarked, "There are always
going to be some conflicts (bet-
ween federations and
synagogues) but it is important
that we open up to each other.
The basic theme of Federation
is 'One People, One Destiny,'
and it is essential that we re-

Bierman said the passage by
CJF of a resolution cautioning
the government of Israel that
any change in the "Who Is A
Jew" law would have negative
consequences amongst U.S.
Jewry, represents, "ar^ ex-
tremely significant step." He
explained, "People in my com-
munity are very concerned
about this whole issue. We

plight of Jews in the Soviet

on their behalf sponsored by
the Community Relations
Committee and the Soviet
Jewry Committee of the
Jewish Federation of Greater

Convened by Hadassah, and
held at Temple Beth Israel,

highlighted by a gripping per-

Alone on stage, Fernhoff told
the tales of a Jewish woman in
the Soviet Union, her plight,
the persecution she endured
and finally, the realization of
her true identity.
Speaking before a filled

invocation; Barbara Wiener,
who is chairman of the Soviet

versation with Marcia
You cannot escape! You are
sentenced to an invasion of
your sense of sight and your
sense of sound for the months
of November through January
every year ... as long as you
live (in the United States of
America). From Publix to
Lord and Taylor you MUST
listen to "... born is the king
of Is-rye-el ... etc." On a re-
cent television show, Phil
Donahue's subject was
"Should we celebrate
Christmas in the public
schools?". Several Jewish
women, one Black Muslim
man, and Mr. Donahue,
himself, answered in the
negative. His audience for the
most part agreed that "this is
a Christian country and
therefore it is almost a
patriotic duty to decorate
trees in the classroom, and
teach (all) children what
Christmas is all about."
Unfortunately, many Jewish
children do not have enough
education and training in their
own heritage to adequately
combat these outside in-
fluences. Most do not realize
that the Chanukah menorah is
not a Jewish equivalent to the
Christian's tree. Nor are they
taught that the story of the
Maccabees, although signifi-
cant as an historical event has
nothing whatever to do with
the Jewish holiday (holy)
season. Rosh Hashanah, Yom
Kippur, Sukkot and Simhat
Torah have a completely dif-
ferent emphasis. Indeed the
Ethiopian Jews who knew only
the Torah, never even heard of
Chanukah until they arrived in
"western civilization."
However, we in Fort
Lauderdale do have a school
which instills in our children
Jewish values. One of our
Federation's beneficiary agen-
cies. The David Posnack
Hebrew Day School is such a
place. Although housed on the
grounds of the Perlman cam-
pus of the Samuel and Helene
Soref Jewish Community
Center in Plantation, it is a
separate facility from the JCC.
This very special institution
has its own staff, president
and board of directors. Several
of our own Women's Division
board members are parents of
children who attend the
Hebrew Day School. In a con-
Schwartz and Susan Canarick
we learned that tile school was
founded in' 1974, by the
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Federation, and a group of
parents seeking a wellrounded
education for their children,
with a strong emphasis on
Jewish identity. Many of our
Women's Division leaders
have come from the ranks of
the parents of Day School. In
addition to Marcia and Susan,
we can count on Pearl Reins-
tein, Lois Polish, Marilynn
Levine, Cathy Bierman, Sandy
Jackowitz, and others to bring
their expertise to our Federa-
tion activities. These women
are setting a standard of
Jewish commitment for their
own families and others to
Marcia Schwartz and Susan
The David Posnack Hebrew
Day School is chartered by the
State of Florida and registered
with the Florida Department
of Education. Accredited by
the association of independent
schools of Florida, the school is
a member of the Florida
Association of Academic Non-
Public Schools and the
Broward County Non-Public
School association. They also
work very closely with the
Central Agency for Jewish
Education, another Federa-
tion beneficiary, and the
Jewish Council of Early
Childhood Educators. Fran
Merenstein, a most capable
and inspiring woman, has been
the director of an excellent
staff of dedicated teachers for
the last nine years.
Watching a three year old
learning Hebrew or working
on a computer is an amazing
experience. The enthusiasm of
these little ones and their in-
structor carries all through the
school. There are, presently,
210 students ranging from
Ere-kindergarten to 8th grade,
limited class size makes possi-
ble a student-teacher ratio
necessary to develop the
highest potential of each in-
dividual. The school has
developed a total Hebrew im-
mersion program that starts in
the first grade and continues
through the eighth. Torah is
first taught to children in the
third grade, but 5th grade and
higher learn from the original
texts. In eighth grade,
students study the weekly
Sidrah portion and learn the
laws of the Torah. Prayer
study and davening, and study
of Jewish life are included in
the Judaica curriculum. Ob-
viously, these are not children
who will be confused by the
mixed messages of the so-
called "holiday season." In ad-
dition to a full range of
academic subjects, all students
have courses in Bible study
and Jewish history. This will
range from a tour of Israel to
world history and the
All ages of Day School
students are able to conduct
services at their various
synagogues. Ranging in
outlook from reform and
reconstructionist to conser-
vative Jews, they will always
be confident of their individual
Jewish identity. Senior
citizens at the Gathering Place
welcome the students with
open arms when they cross the
campus to join in Shabbot ser-
vices or share many holidays,
including Chanukah, together.
This interaction between
generations is beneficial for
both young and old. Several
Chanukah parties are held at
the school each year. But this
is not the only Jewish holiday
that is important to these
youngsters. Children as young
as three years old have learned
to blow the Shofar and can
perform the kiddush for the
High Holy Days. Participation
at the Purim carnival, in
cooperation with the JCC early
childhood center, is a delight
with everyone dressing up in
costume or as a favorite
character. Of course, the Yom
Haatzmaut, Israel In-
dependence Day festival on
the Perlman campus rings
with the shouts and laughter of
kids of all ages each year.
Much more fun than watching
for a fat bearded man in a
snowsuit to fall down a
Students at the Hebrew Day
School have a long and full
schedule. Classes start at 8
a.m. and continue until 3:30
p.m. Secular education is by no
means neglected. Indeed the
superior education given to all
grades assures each and every
student of a good academic
start. Graduates of this school
are superior in high school and
certainly will go out into the
world well prepared to deal
with the complexities of life. A
complete computer instruction
program assures every stu-
dent a working knowledge of
how to use a computer both
creatively and as an instruc-
tional tool. Programs in all
subjects meet individual needs
and are structured to be both
remedial and enriching. The
library has expanded over the
years and is still growing. To-
day it is housed in a large
classroom at the JCC and in-
cludes a wonderful Judaica
It is clear that the day school
movement is the success story
of Jewish education. Whether
measured by growth, student
success, or professional and
parental satisfaction, the day
school is rapidly becoming the
educational form with the
greatest potential for intensi-
fying Jewish life. Ours is a
growing North Broward.
There was no need for a
Hebrew Day School. Twelve
years ago the first students
met in a trailer and for a time
that was adequate. Today we
are able to teach 210 younsters
how to grow up Jewish in a
Christian country. With each
of us helping to put up a much
needed new building, we can
expand the facilities of the on-
ly Hebrew Day School in our
ever growing community. We
have a sacred obligation to the
first Jewish generation of
native Floridians. They are our
future leaders and they are
vital to the survival of the
Jewish people. As it is written.

should go, And even when

Make one stack taller to hold the

Place enough glue in the hole of

When the glue dries it will adhere

How to Play Dreidle
Everyone in the game starts
with 10 or 15 pennies (nuts, raisin,
matchsticks, etc.).
Each player puts one of these in
the middle (called The Pot).
The dreidel is spun by one
player at a time.
Whether he wins or loses
depends on which face of the
dreidel is up when it falls.

From the
Rabbi's Study
Ramat Shalom
Editor's Note: This is the
first in a new regular column,
a service of the North Braward
Board of Rabbis, Rabbi Elliot
L. Skiddell, president.
Watching our Greater Ft.
Lauderdale Jewish community
grow and develop is like wat-
ching the growth and develop-
ment of a child. Just as a child
goes through various stages of
development so has our com-
munity, but our community is
growing faster and changing
more quickly than any child. A
child's growth is slow and
steady and we can see the pro-
gress made in each stage of
development. Watching our
community it is more difficult
to discern the growth pattern
because we don't have the
perspective of history by which
to judge the growth of our
community. As I look back,
however, over the five years
since I moved to Ft. Lauder-
dale I can begin to see definite
patterns of growth and a
maturing of our community.
Yes, the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish community
is coming of age. All, the signs
for a maturing and strengthen-
ed community are present.
But, we still need the par-
ticipation of the people who
make up this community to
make it truly a great Jewish
One of the major problems
we have is that when a person
moves here from "up North"
they are leaving behind a com-
munity where all the in-
frastructure of a Jewish com-
munity already exists.
Naturally, when they come in-
to their new home they expect
the same kind of infrastruc-
ture to be available. They were
accustomed to having available
a Jewish Family Service, a
Jewish Community Center, a
Board of Rabbis, a Senior
Citizens Home and/or center
and all the other trappings of a
Jewish community. Moreover,
they knew exactly where these
institutions were located and if
they needed those services

they knew just how to get
there and just who to speak to
to get what they needed.
In the last few years our
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Jewish community has been
struggling to create all of the
institutions and services need-
ed by a large Jewish communi-
ty. They are now all in place or
in the planning stages and
soon to be in existence. But all
the newcomers don't yet know
their way around and have not
yet learned where these in-
stitutions are or who to speak
to obtain the services they
The suggestion has been
made before that what we
need in this area is a "Jewish
Welcome Wagon" or a
"Shalom Neighbor" type of
program that would both
welcome newcomers to the
area and orient them to the
various institutions. This is a
sorely needed service which
has been delayed because the
right 'address' has not yet
been found for such a service. I
would urge the Federation to
create a task force which
would join the forces of the
various agencies which would
need to be involved in such a
program (for example the JCC
and Jewish Family Service)
and bring such a program into
existence as soon as possible
for the benefit of the entire
community. Such a program is
one of the few ingredients
needed to make this into a tru-
ly great Jewish community.

You Told Me I'm Special.
That's Nice to Know
When You're 4 Years
Old and Scared!
The words of a sad, scared
child in Jerusalem haunted the
men and women who recently
returned from the "Celebra-
tion '87" Mission to Israel.
"My dad died ... my mom
stopped remembering I was
just a kid ... and it was so
lonely. One day someone sug-
gested my mom enroll me at
the Community Center
preschool near our small apart-
ment in the old city.
My mom worried about the
cost. But they gave us
something called a scholarship.
They said people far away in
America cared about me. Now
everyday I play, laugh and act
like a kid again. I want to wish
all of my freinds in Greater
Fort Lauderdale a Happy and
Healthy Chanukah!"
