What ftTiksTb Be
A Riverside
It takes years.
It took nearly 60 years to
build trust in a name. It took
leadership who helped set the
standards for Jewish funeral service
decades ago. Throughout the
years leaders such as Charles
Rosenthal and Carl Grossberg
exemplified their belief that Jewish
funeral service is not merely a
business, but a solemn trust held
by funeral directors on behalf
of the families they serve.
Today the
Riverside tradi-
tion continues
under the
leadership of Kenneth J Lassman
and a new generation of caring
managers. And today the name
Riverside, nurtured through six
decades, remains the most
respected name in Jewish funeral
service in the world.

From Hitler to Khaddafi

there is an anti-Semite under

of becoming the sequel to
Adolph Hitler's little

Numbing Experience
Several weeks ago Michael Winograd, assistant director
of the Anti-Defamation League's southeast region, wrote
in this paper about a meeting of the Atlanta Committee for
Historical Review that he attended. At the meeting David
Irving, self-styled "professional historian," attempted to
prove, among other things, that the Holocaust is a myth.
I also attended this meeting at Cobb County's Waverly
Hotel. When I learned about the meeting, I wanted to at-
tend, but was very hesitant. To be blunt, I was frightened.
Who would be at this meeting? Was there a possibility of
violence if it was discovered I was Jewish? I had little doubt
that I would not be so recognized. I found someone to go
with me, and I think we were both very apprehensive until
we left the hotel and had driven out of the parking lot after
the session. I cannot recall the last time I felt so uneasy
about being Jewish.
We all know that there are disturbed minds denying the
existence of the Holocaust, but to come face to face with
them has its intriguing side. Irving is British and his accent
gives him an unmerited credibility. Statements were
thrown out like a baseball batter scattering balls to a team
in practice. His delivery was rapid fire and polished. No
time to think. No time to analyze. Just enough time to ac-
cept his remarks at face value, which seemed sufficient for
his audience. Irving should be of concern simply for his
style and manner if nothing else. He is good at what he
does. He outwardly lacks the characteristics of your typical
Ostensibly, his subject was not the Holocaust and Jews,
but he frequently returned to that theme. He spoke about
World War II and claimed that Germany was Britain's best
ally. Then he accused Churchill of being an alcoholic and
claimed he painted pictures to which he would put the
names of well-known, but deceased, artists. Pearl Harbor
was next, which led to assertions that President Roosevelt
knew of the impending Japanese attack. And, by the way,
FDR was influenced by the Jews and if they only knew he
was anti-Semitic ...
Next we learned that two Berlin bankers financed Hitler.
He mocked that he would surely be labeled anti-Semitic if
he mentioned their religion, and then noted that one was a
leader of Zionism in Germany. But he did state they were
Jews, which by this time the audience clearly understood.
Hitler, we were informed, lacked knowledge of
Auschwitz and Treblinka. He, in fact, was a sort of friend
of the Jews, for there was a 1942 document of the German
Ministry of Justice that proved that he wanted to deal with
a solution to the Jewish problem after the war. His
statements begged for clarification, which, of course, were
not forthcoming. What problem? What solution? And if
there was no mass exterminations, what was Auschwitz
and Treblinka?
The audience appeared typically middle class, which in
itself was disturbing. Do they really believe all this? Did
they not applaud when Irving ridiculed Ehe Wiesel?
It was hard to feel anger. Pity, maybe, that people could
be so obsessed with hatred and spreading lies and so easily
duped into believing them.
Irony! An anti-Semite named David, speaking at the
fashionable Waverly Hotel, less than a mile down the road
from where Leo Frank was lynched in 1915.

Leadership group of the Atlanta GA Federation.

We had, for starters, Jesse
Jackson, a man running for
president of the United States,
talking about Hymie and
Hymietown. Though widely
condemned, the fact is that
those remarks were widely
quoted, printed in the
newspapers, talked about on
TV and said out loud.
And then there was Louis
Farrakhan with his ranting
about the gutter religion and
the nature of the Jews. Again,

Lyndon LaRouche and Moam-

Gore Vidal and Joseph Sobran.
Vidal, the radical liberal and
Sobran, the radical conser-
vative could not be farther
apart politically or
philosophically. There is vir-
tually no issue they ever come
close to agreeing on.
Except, it seems their view
of the Jews.
Vidal, the noted novelist,
gave vent to his feelings in the
liberal magazine, The Nation.
Vidal accused Commentary
magazine editor Norman
Podhoretz and his wife, Midge
Decter, of being "Israeli fifth
columnists." He told them, "I
don't like your country, which
is Israel" and labeled Jews in
Israel "a predatory people

land in the name of an alien

Sobran, whose column is
syndicated to 60 newspapers
around the country, tells his
readers such things as that the
New York Times endorsed the
American attack on Libya only
because it conformed to the
paper's "ardent Zionist line;
that Jewish references to
Ssrsecution at the hands of
hristians obscured centuries-
old patterns of Jewish hostility
toward Christians; and praised
a magazine called Instauration
which, among other things,
denies the reality of the
No, none of this is new, of
course, and no doubt there are
far too many people in this
country who feel what Vidal
and Sobran have expressed.
What's new is that people
like them are speaking out
loud and clear in the open and
in places by those who can't so
easily be dismissed as kooks or
on the fringe.
And that is something to
worry about.
For the more it is said out
loud, the more it's heard and
the more it becomes accepted
and reinforced. The shock
wears off, the negative reac-
tion lessens, the curtain of
taboo is lowered, the more
reigns its expression.
It becomes okay. Why not?
Okay to say out loud, okay not
to worry, okay not to stop
And when that starts, Jews
know all too well that what
comes next is something that
will span from Hitler to Khad-
dafi! Hate, Oppression and

Your Single Gift Helps a.

World of Jewish Need
What is the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale/United Jewish Appeal and
why should I care?"
The magnitude and urgency
of Jewish needs in 1987 here
at home, in Israel and
throughout the world have
brought to each one of us a
completely new challenge, and
North Broward County men,
women and children must res-
pond to this quest for life-
saving, life-giving services
through a heartfelt gift to the
'87 Federation/UJA
In a special interview at the
Floridian, Sheldon S. Polish,
1987 general chairman, in-
dicated that, "This is not
business as usual in this
violent, inflationary world,
both the sheer number of
Jewish men, women and
children who need our help
and the cost of helping them
have escalated to a point
previously undreamed of.
Because of the relentless
searching eyes and ears of
modern communications,
Jewish problems anywhere in
the world can no longer re-
main hidden from us. And we
cannot hide from them.
Where else can Jews turn,
except to us who live in the
freedom of the wealthiest na-
tion on earth?
Nowhere in our communities
of North Broward County shall
a Jewish person be in need of
aid or guidance and find
Jewish hearts unheeding.
Nowhere in Israel
nowhere in the world, shall a
Jewish person cry out for help
and find Jewish ears deaf to
his call.
For these are our people,
wherever they may be. The
children and the aged. The

JERUSALEM Lower tax rates and fewer tax conces-
sions are two key elements in a far reaching economic
growth plan now under preparation by the Finance
Ministry and the Bank of Israel. The plan also envisions
significant easing of foreign currency restrictions and a
drastic overhaul of Israel's capital market.
JERUSALEM Anatolv Scharansky has accused Israel
of failing to campaign publicly for Soviet Jews because it
does not want to irritate the Soviet Union and is overly con-
cerned about "rocking the boat." He said Israel's "quiet
approach" to trying to promote Jewish emigration actually
helped Moscow keep the doors shut.
JERUSALEM Israel's largest summer ulpan, held at
the Rothberg School for Overseas Students of the Hebrew
University had an enrollment this year of over 800 students
from all over the world. The students included five Catholic
priests from the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute and
five Catholic priests from Madrid as well as 20 theological
students from West Germany.
JERUSALEM A sign of a possible thaw in Israel's
relations with the East European bloc was indicated by the
participation for the first time in Israel of 16 East Euro-
pean Bible scholars in the XII Congress of the Interna-
tional Organization for the Study of the Old Testament,
held at the Hebrew University.

sponsored lecture series will
be the Honorable Simcha
Dinitz. Elected in 1984 as a
member of the Israel Knesset;
member of the Foreign Affairs

at its Leonard David Institute
of International Relations.
Prior to this, he served the late
Prime Minister Golda Meir as
Director General of her office.
Ambassador Dinitz is one of
Israel's leading observers on
American-Israeli relations. He
hosts the television program
"Hello Jerusalem" which is
seen every week on television.
The lecture will begin prompt-
ly at 8 p.m.
The "Contemporary Issues
of Jewish Life" lecture series

Publicity Chair
Friday, January 9, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 7
Israeli Ballet.. .
From the dawn of civiliza-
tion until the present moment,
the Land of Israel has held a
position of centrality in the
lives of the Jewish people.
Although we, as Americans,
are not directly involved in the
politics of that country, we do
collect much of the funds sup-
porting Israel's health and
social services. Indeed, more
than half of all the money rais-
ed by The Greater Ft. Lauder-
dale Federation/UJA cam-
paign is allocated for our
brethren overseas. Yet, unfor-
tunately, many people have
never been to Israel. There are
even those of us who have
gone on brief visits and only
stayed in the "five star
hotels, patronized the many
elegant shops, and dined in the
country's fine restaurants. As
promised in the Bible (Exodus
3:8), this is truly "a land flow-
ing with milk and honey."
From waterfalls of Rosh
Hanikra in the north to the
Israel-Egypt boundary in the
south, one should experience
the beauty of this country.
There are mountains and
valleys, arid regions and
rivers, all part of more than
five thousand years of Jewish
history. The Hula Valley, bet-
ween the mountains of Galilee
and the Golan Heights was
once a swampland. Today it is
a fertile agricultural area and
nature preserve. Modern ir-
rigation has "made the desert
bloom" in the once arid Negev.
Over 25,000 types of plants
grow'in the country, 150 of
which are exclusively grown in
Israel. Ecology is an important
part of every Israeli's upbring-
ing. Hundreds of plants and
animals have been declared
protected species, including
the leopard, gazelle, ibex,
vulture, and the oak and palm.
All Israelis, even the smallest
children, know it is forbidden
to pick certain wild flowers,
such as the scarlet anemones,
blue iris, and pink cyclamen,
which carpet the countryside
every spring. Animals men-
tioned in the Bible, which have
been extinct in the region for
centuries, are being rein-
troduced to the area. Almost
two million Israelis every year
pack baskets of home cooked
food and local wine and take
advantage of the many public
hiking trails and picnic areas.
During its long history,
Israel has been known by
many names. Jews have
always said (in Hebrew)
'Eretz-Yisroel' (Land of
Israel). It has been called
'Zion,' which is one of the hills
of Jerusalem but can denote
either Jerusalem or the State
of Israel, 'Palestine,' derived
from the philistines, was first
used by the Romans in an at"
tempt to erase any reference
to the Jewish connection with
the country. This name was us-
ed by the rest of the world un-
til the declaration of the State
in 1948. Today the terrorists
have given it still another
meaning. Israel, itself, has also
been called 'The Holyland'
(mostly by church groups) and
'The promised Land' (mostly
by Sholom Alecheim). To most
Israelis, Israel is quite simply,
'Ha-Aretz,' 'the Land' and so
it shall remain.
Israel is the setting for the
Bible. This is a place where
history and geography are
one! Do you remember Joshua
stopping the sun to have time
enough to crush the Amorites?
That occurred in the Valley of
Ayalon between Ramie and
Jerusalem. And David, the
shepherd boy, attacking the
Philistine giant, Goliath, with
slingshot? That event took
place on the Beersheva road.
One can swim at the beach in
Ashkelon where Samson first
met Delilah, who later cut off
his hair and caused his
downfall. On this same shore,
a whale was said to have
returned Jonah to the light of
day. The stories go on but
many a "legend" has been pro-
ven by archeology in this
amazing land. In the town of
Beit-shan, where an American
UJA Women's Division built
the present day high school
and community center, one
can visit the restored Roman
theater. An ancient pagan
temple dedicated to the god-
dess Astarte, once stood on
that same ground. The bible
tells us that against its walls
the Philistines nailed the nak-
ed, decapitated body of King
Saul. Further south in Timna,
copper is still being extracted
today from "King Solomon's
mines" as it was in those an-
cient biblical times.
But life in Israel today does
not dwell in the past. More
than 85 percent of Israelis are
city-dwellers. The three major
cities of Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv,
and Haifa are well known and
visited by most travelers.
Beersheva with a population of
110,800 is a new city on an an-
cient site. It dates back some
4000 years to the age of the
Patriarchs. Have you ever at-
tended an auction in a Bedouin
camel market? It's a weekly
event in the colorful city. If
you find yourself in Israel dur-
ing the fall or winter, go to
Eilat. Floridians who love the
keys will feel right at home.
The blue-green water, warm
summer sun and fine beaches
are another paradise. Driving
throughout the countryside by
bus or by car, you will pass
hundreds of small signs in-
dicating the name of each com-
munity. Look carefully, the
sign also says, "UJA/Keren
Kayemet." These are many of
the villages, kibbutzim, and
moshavim, initially started
with money from the United
Jewish Appeal. The land itself
was purchased by Jewish Na-
tional Fund, (in Hebrew,
'Keren Kayemet L'Yisroel').
All JNF land is held in
perpetual trust for the Jewish
people and, accordingly, may
be leased but not sold.
To the rest of the world the
'kibbutz' has become almost
synonymous with Israel.
Although the concept is indeed
unique, today only 3 percent of
the population live on the
country's 260 kibbutzim.
Members of these cooperative
egalitarian and economically
independent communities own
no individual property and
receive no salaries. In return
for their labor, all needs, from
housing, health, and education
to vacations and pocket money
are supplied by the kibbutz. All
members participate in deci-
sion making and allocation,
and determine how the com-
munity will be run. Tradi-
tionally the backbone of
Israel's farm industry, many
kibbutzim, recently have had
to turn to the UJA for help in
learning to industrialize.
Another 4 percent of the
population live on a 'moshav.'
The concept is different from
that of the kibbutz in that each
family maintains its own
household and owns its own
land. The moshav cooperative-
ly provides major economic
and social services. Often as
many as three generations live
together on one farmstead.
Each family unit belongs to
the moshav's cooperative
framework, which deals collec-
tively with marketing and sup-
ply, and provides educational,
medical and cultural services.
The influx of people from
well over one hundred coun-
tries arund the world has
brought a diversity to Israel
that is very special. Israeli
music, literature, theater,
dance, fine arts, and cinema
are a unique blending of tradi-
tional Jewish motifs and
various cultural influences,
and the impact of life in Israel.
Theater and concert perfor-
mances of the world's greatest
artists are regularly given in
cities, towns, and rural centers
throughout the country. It is
no wonder that our own Pro-
ject Renewal City of Kfar Saba
takes pride in its children's or-
chestra. As befits the 'People
of the Book,' Israel has at least
1000 public and university
libraries. A recent Unesco
survey shows that Israelis
read and publish more books
per capita than any other peo-
ple in the world. As Jews we
are well aware of the impor-
tance of education. The
ministry of education works
hand in hand with both the
Jewish Agency and UJA
women's divisions all over the
United States in assuring
Israeli youngsters the best
education available in the
world today.
It is impossible to visit Israel
for one week or even join one
mission and not feel a genuine
desire to return. It is a feeling
of "home." You may not
always understand the
language or even all of the
customs, but the Jewish heart
is the same. We, who support
the State of Israel with our
commitment to Federa-
tion/UJA may indeed savor a
special sense of achievement -
and participation in making /
this extraordinary country a
"Land of Milk and Honey/'

Apartheid Foe
Wins Award
South African author ana a foe
of apartheid, John Coetzee,
was named the winner of
Jerusalem's Freedom of the
Individual in Society Award.
The 46-year-old Afrikaaner
first gained international ac-
claim in 1982 for his book,
"Waiting for the Barbariana."
Other books by Coetzee in-
clude "In the Heart of the
Country," "The Life and
Times of Michael K.," "Dusk
Lands," and the soon-to-be
released "Foes."
The Annual Rally on behalf
of the 1987 Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal by
the Lauderdale West com-
munity took on a 'new mean-
ing' this year for residents
thus inspiring them to donate
more dollars than ever before
for the '87 campaign.
"The emotional words of our
guest speaker, Federation vice
president Dan Cantor, truly
moved those in attendance at
our Dec. 7 Rally to increase
their gifts," stated Reba and
Sid Goldstein, chairmen.
"Thus far, we are approx-
imately 18.6 percent over our
totals last year, and we're not
through yet."
"We expect to be calling on
all of our neighbors and hope
that they will be as generous
this year as they have been in
the past."
The Goldsteins noted that

dale West/UJA campaign

should be pleased, however,
not satisfied.
"We cannot sit back and be
complacent. There's much
more to be done in raising
funds for Israel, our local
beneficiary agencies and for
Jews all over the world."

Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Editor'* Note: The following
information is compiled from
the archives of the Jewish
Floridian of Greater Fort
Now. The challenge is ours.
Those words echoed across
North Broward county as con-
tributors were asked to in-
crease their commitments
some 25 percent to the 1979-80
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign due to the
escalating inflationary
pressures on worldwide needs
and services.
Serving as general campaign
chairman was Milton Keiner
with Victor Gruman serving as
vice chairman.
Helping to launch the cam-
paign was Israeli Ambassador
Benjamin Varon, who said,
"Peace it's so wonderful
but oh, so expensive." Over 80
North Broward residents at-
tended the Initial Gifts event.
"World relations were high
on the agenda in 1980 as the
'conscience of U.S. Jewry,"
Theodore Mann, addressed the
Woodlands Initial Gifts event.
Over 700 Century Village
residents attended a
U.S.-Israel town meeting held
at Temple Beth Israel in
Also happening in Deerfield
Beach was the dedication of
the Federation's Branch Of-
fice. Federation president Leo
Goodman told the group in at-
tendance that the officers and
Board are extremely gratified
with the cooperation by Cen-
tury Village and the Deerfield
Beach area. Paul Levine will
staff the new office.
"We're on our way ...
shooting high." And the
greatest display of media ex-
posure flashed by billboards,
newspaper advertisements
and radio announcements for
the 1980 Federation/UJA cam-
paign. Billboards stating that
"The UJA Needs You" were
evident throughout our com-
munity in the hopes of attrac-
ting new gifts to the campaign.
In the initial phase of the
campaign, more than $1
million had been pledged
which coincided with the for-
mal dedication of one of

Arabic Newspaper
Editor Deported
Akram Haniya, editor of the
East Jerusalem Arabic daily
A-Shaab, was deported Sun-
day after dropping his appeal
to the Supreme Court against
the expulsion order.
Haniya was put aboard a
Swissair flight to Zurich at
Ben Gurion Airport and is
believed en route to Algeria.
He surprised his supporters
and accusers alike Friday
when he dropped his appeal,
charging that he was "a victim
of political revenge."
He said he decided not to
fight deportation after the
high court ruled last week that
virtually all of the evidence
compiled against him was
classified information that
could not be made available to
his attorneys. This meant in ef-
fect that Haniya could not de-
fend himself because he did
not know what to defend
In a statement to his
lawyers, he said: "I am a vic-
tim of political revenge for my
struggle as a political person,
as a journalist and as a writer,
to achieve the legitimate
rights of my people."
The Israeli authorities who
brought charges against
Haniya claimed he was a
senior political activist of El
Fatah, the military wing of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, and a conduit for PLO
funds and orders. He denied
the charges.

Women's League! Symbol of
the growth and development
in WLI over the years. No one
better typifies this change
than our new National Presi-
dent, Muriel Lunden.
The background is tradi-
tional. As a young mother,
Muriel joined the Stuyvesant
Chapter in New York and was
soon chapter chairman.
Though she left the Stuyve-
sant area to work professional-
ly in advertising and public
relations, her support of
Women's League never
faltered. When she and her
husband Milton retired and
moved to Florida, Muriel turn-
ed her tremendous drive to the
founding of the Woodlands
Chapter and later to the for-
mation of a Florida Council
and then to a Florida Region.
In each project she served as
motivating force and first
Muriel does not foresee any
problems being a Florida
President of an organization
headquartered in New York.
"The presidency is not just a
desk job," she says. "More im-
portant is exchanging ideas
with other leaders and getting
out into the field to gam new
perspectives." She'does spend
many hours at home working
out ideas, preparing cor-
respondence and planning
agendas. Several days each
month are spent in New York,
devoted to tightly planned and
coordinates sessions with na-
tional and regional leaders.

Harp Concert at Emanu-El
Temple Emanu-El and the
Klement-Winter Foundation
announce that widely acclaim-
ed harpist, Conner, will play at
the Temple on Sunday,
January 18, at 3:30 p.m. This
concert is the first in a series
that will feature noted artists
both local and international.
Accompanying Miss Conner
will be flutist, Suzan
The series is dedicated to the
memory of the late Cantor
Jerome Klement, who served
the community and Temple
Emanu-El for over nineteen
years. A respected musician
with a voice of gold, Cantor
Klement touched the lives of
so many south Florida
residents. Even after his
retirement, he continued to
share his talents, both as a con-
tor and later, as a rabbi.
The sweetness of the harp
and flute will be a most fitting
way to inaugurate the series.
Tickets are $5 (general admis-
sion) and $10 (reserved
seating). For information con-

Editor' Note: This is the se-
cond in a new regular column,
a service of the North Broward
Board of Rabbis, Rabbi Elliot
L. SkiddeU, president.
When I was a child I remember
my family had a great concern
about moving to Florida. They
had heard a lot about Anti-
Semitism in the south and were
concerned about how the
neighbors would feel about having
observant Jews on their block.
The reaction of our new
neighbors was soon detected. As
we walked to the synagogue on
Shabbat, our neighbors made
every effort to be kind to our fami-
ly, turning off their automatic
lawn sprinklers so we would not
have to walk in the street to stay
To this day, I feel that most peo-
ple of other faiths have a great
deal of tolerance for others who
are serious about practicing their
religion. No matter how different
the form of worship may be, there
always is an understanding bet-
ween those who are religious.
At this time of year, when our
Christian neighbors prepare to
celebrate one of their most impor-
tant holidays, many Jews look to
the Christian Holiday for symbols
of religious commitment. Without
any regard for the feelings of
their Christian neighbors, these
Jews co-opt trees, lights, decora-
tions and other symbols in an at-
tempt to share the joy of the
There are many reasons for this
behavior. Some think their
children will be deprived if they
don't make an effort to celebrate
the holiday. Some are overawed
by the beauty of the displays.
Some justify what they do by
lowering the holiday to secular
status. In spite of all these
reasons, when Jews bring into
their homes the religious symbols
of another faith without having
any feelings for what the objects
symbolize, then their action
With Rhyme And
Prayer For The
Great Lord and King who rules
our lives,
Help us go Your Way,
And bless each family of those
Who come to Shul to pray.
Bestow Your favors too on all
Those volunteers who strive
To help maintain our Synagogue
So that it long may thrive.
And we, Your worshipers,
That You dispense Your cheer
On those who help the poor, and
Those who visit here ..
Oh, may it also be Your will
To celebrate the ones
Who campaign for the UJA
To raise much-needed funds.
Remove us all from sickness now,
Preserve us in good health,
Please answer us, oh Lord, and let
Your blessings be our wealth.

amounts to a desecration of the
other religion.
This sounds strong and I mean
it to be strong. We do no service
to our neighbors or to ourselves
when we turn from our own
heritage and steal symbols from
someone else's. There are many
beautiful Jewish symbols that we
can bring into our lives and into
the life of our family at many
times throughout the year. Jews
decorate their homes during Suk-
kot in October. Jews dress up in
costume on Purim in March. Jews
plant trees in February on Tu
B'Shevat; they do not cut them
down in December.
Our Christian neighbors have
enough difficulties keeping crass
commercialism out of their holi-
day (an increasing problem for
Chanukah as well) without our
people making a parody of their
holiday symbols.
We can join with our neighbors
in celebrating this season of
brotherhood and joy, but we can-
not and should not bring their
holiday into our homes. Trees, hol-
ly and mistletoe belong to our
neighbors. Candles, latkes and
dreidle belong to our celebration.
There is plenty of room in our
neighborhoods for both.
What is happening to the
American Jewish family? We
continue to believe that the
family is the basic indispen-
sable unit for maintaining and
enhancingJewish identity and
stability. The changing roles in
family life and the changing
responsibilities of family
members, coupled with the
sidered to be necessary for
population without any actual
growth. The current birth
death will produce an increase
in the number of Jewish
households which are compris-
ed singles, childless couples,
and affluent elderly whose
children are independent. The

dramatic increase in the
divorce rate, resulting in the
impoverization of women and
children, substantial increase
in inter-marriage rate, and the
return of women to the labor
force, are only a few examples
that the American Jewish
family is changing.
No longer can we say of our
Jewish families, now so much
like all other American
families, that they are free of
certain problems. We see
chemical dependency and
substance abuse, family
violence, neglect of aged
parents, homo-sexuality, cults
and missionaries. In this grow-
ing Jewish community we have
new and growing problems to
acknowledge and confront.
Todays open society offers
us mobility, leisure time and
opportunities for self-
expression beyond the wildest
dreams of the past. As Jews, in
a non-Jewish world, there has
been a cutting off from the
stable secure values of the

Alarming rates of divorce
and inter-marriage have
signaled the end of the tradi-
tional Jewish family.
These trends have
highlighted the critical role of
the Jewish family in
nourishing emotional ties to
Judaism and transmitting
Jewish knowledge and skills.
According to Chaim Waxman
"the family is the central in-
stitution for defining and
transmitting the identity and
identification without which
the Jewish ethnoreligious com-
munity could not exist."
