nual Gala Dinner-Dance, on
behalf of the 1987 Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
campaign, will be held on
Sunday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. in

Women's Division Passes the Million Dollar Mark
Alvera Gold, Women's Divi-
sion Campaign chairman, has
announced that the Women's
Division has raised over one
million dollars for the 1987
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale/United
Jewish Appeal Campaign. At
press time the Women's Divi-
sion total was in excess of
$1,025,000, representing 24
percent of the total campaign
to date.
"Our campaign is progress-
ing at a much faster pace than
last year," said Gold, noting
that at this time last year the
Women's Division total was
$715,510. "Our area and divi-
sion chairmen and their
workers are doing a tremen-
dous job, and the figure
reflects their hard work."
Last year the Women's Divi-
sion raised over $1,100,000 for
the 1986 Federation/UJA
Campaign, and Gold is confi-
dent that this year's total will
surpass that fijjure. "We still

Five Years After Death
Dayan Still Arouses Many Passions
Five years after his death,
Moshe Dayan remains a
figure who arouses pas-
sions. To some he was the
swashbuckling hero who
brought swift victory in the
Six-Day War, while to
others he was a turncoat
who treacherously legitimiz-
ed the Likud by changing
parties after the 1977 elec-
tion. To some he was a
romantic hero who epitomiz-
ed the bravery of the
modern sabra, while to
others he was an irresponsi-
ble womanizer.
Dayan's influence over issues of
war and peace remains monumen-
tal. As Chief of Staff in the early
1950's, he built the IDF into a
modern fighting force and led it to
victory in the Sinai Campaign. As
Defense Minister in 1967, he par-
71 ticipated in the stunning successes
r of the Sue-Day War and in the
P public eye became the main hero.
Though Defense Minister dur-
ing the Yom Kippur War of 1973,
the Agranat Commission of In-
quiry cleared him of responsibility
for initial losses during that war.
Nevertheless, his reputation suf-
fered enormously as a conse-
quence and marked the beginning
of his decline and eventual
resignation.
But Dayan was as much a
peacemaker and statesman as a
soldier. He met with Jordan's
Emir Abdullah and helped

NEW YORK Beate Klarsfeld said she will stop sear-
ching for Nazi war criminals if Kurt Waldheim will resign
as President of Austria. Klarsfeld made that offer of
reciprocity at a meeting of the World Jewish Congress
honoring her for her long-time work of pursuing Nazis
around the world who have gone unpunished. "I will give
up my work as a Nazi-hunter if I will oblige Waldheim to
resign as President of Austria," she said. "Perhaps the
Austrians one day will understand it's an embarrassment"
to have a man with a documented Nazi past as titular head
of their nation.
NEW YORK The Women's League for Conservative
Judaism sharply condemned the policies of Rabbi Meir
Kahane and called for a congregational boycott of his ap
pearances at synagogues or other Jewish community in-
stitutions. A resolution adopted at the recent convention of
the 200,000-member League stated that "Racism of any
sort must be opposed by Jews everywhere as being an-
tithetical to the teachings of Judaism. We call upon the in-
stitutions of Conservative Judaism and others to speak out
against the policies of Meir Kahane and other anti-
democratic forces in Israel and vigorously oppose any
synagogue or organizational platform to those (like
Kahane) who espouse such destructive methods and goals."
SAN FRANCISCO Three Bay Area rabbis of dif-

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. The Union of American

million members about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syn-

We Are Known as The People of the Book .
Federation/UJA Needs Community Support in '87
By SHELDON S. POLISH
General Chairman
Jews are One People, but we
are not monolithic. We have
one G-d, but many ways of
praise, observance and emula-
tion. Most of all, we have dif-
fering motivations. Some Jews
are less comfortable with their
Jewishness than others. Some
Jews are more public with
their Jewishness tnan others.
Research tells us that the less
comfortable, less public Jews
are less likely to participate in
any Jewish philanthropy.
It is not clear whether this is
because they have less sense of
Tzedakah, their rightful and
righteous obligations to their
fellow Jews, or because they
are so distanced from the
organized Jewish community
that they are never ever ap-
proached for gifts.
At the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, we
refer to these people as
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal PROSPECTS.
All we really know about
them is that they are Jewish,
and that they do not support
their community's major
Jewish philanthropy. What
we'd like to know is WHY they
don't.
There are more than 76,000
PROSPECTS in Greater Fort
Lauderdale's 22 area com-
munities. Some are hollow
Jews, others are totally fulfill-
ed. Most carry some degree of
Judaism within them. Their
commonality may simply be ig-
norance of what Federa-
tion/UJA and the Jewish
Federation are and do.
This is not surprising, for
research also indicates that a
number of our generous and
faithful contributors those
to whom UJA is their No. 1
philanthropy are sadly
unaware of how astonishingly
effective and efficient UJA
and Federation are.
How can we reach these
diverse people? What can we
say to them that will help them
understand our need for them,
and their need for us? The
main thrust it seems to me is
to let them know that North
Broward County has a warm,
caring vibrant Jewish com-
munity centered around
Federation and UJA. And that
for mutual benefit they
should become part of it. We
want to imbue them with the
sense of responsibility and joy
that being Jewish and acting
Jewishly can bring.
We are planning a specializ-
ed mass communications pro-
gram to reach them, even
though we know that by itself
it is not enough. Mass com-
munications can best create
the right atmosphere for in-
timate, personal communica-
tions. Research tells us em-
phatically that personal face-
to-face contact with an inform-
ed volunteer is the best way to
get people to change their
minds and act on the basis of
new information.
If you and everyone of our
more than 25,000 plus con-
tributors would contact just
one PROSPECT face-to-face
and convince them to become
part of our community and
Joel Berkowitz to Address Fast Track Program Feb. 2
United Jewish Appeal Na-
tional New Gifts chairman Joel
Berkowitz, will return to Fort
Lauderdale to address the
Federation's Fast Track pro-
gram again, on Monday even-
ing, Feb. 2 at the Federation
building, 8358 W. Oakland
Park Blvd.
Berkowitz, who led a
workshop on the fine art of
solicitation back in December
will return to see and discuss
how the Fast Track par-
ticipants handled their solicita-
tion assignments.
Berkowitz, a resident of
Newton, Mass., is a key figure
in UJA. He is a National vice
chairman, as well as being
New Gifts chairman.
In his homestate of
Massachusetts, Berkowitz has
served as chairman of the
Metropolitan Division of the
Combined Philanthropies of
Boston, first president of the
Leventhal-Sidman Jewish
Community Center, member
of the board of JCC's of
Greater Boston and a recipient
of the President's Award from
the Combined Jewish
Philanthropies.
Berkowitz is also a board
member of the National
Jewish Welfare Board, past
member of the National Young
Leadership cabinet and a reci-
pient of the JWB's Young
Leadership Award.

EFFECTIVE JAN. 10,1987, there will be an increase in
bus fares. This increase is unavoidable due to the loss of
almost $7,000,000 a year in federal revenue sharing funds.
These funds were used to support Mass Transit services in
Broward County. As part of its efforts to reduce the budget
deficit, the federal government has eliminated the revenue
sharing program. As a result, bus fares must be increased
to help replace the lost revenue. The only other choice is to
cut back bus service to reduce costs. The regular bus fare
will go from 50 to 75 cents. The bus fare for senior citizens
and the handicapped will change from 25 to 85 cents. The
price of transfers will not increase. If you would like fur-
ther information, please contact 357-8355.
THE RESPONSIBILITIES of the Broward Sheriffs
Office are many and varied, from patrol to detention of law
breakers to civil process. But the basis of our identity as an
agency consists of the uniform deputies, detectives and
specialists who make up the Department of Law
Enforcement.
DLE, as we call it, has grown to 610 sworn personnel as
of Dec. 31, keeping pace with the growth and increasing
complexity of Broward County.
Through November of 1986 our patrol deputies respond-
ed to nearly 200,000 calls for service and assisted municipal
police and other agencies on 19,000 more.
It takes special qualities to become a patrol deputy. The
job is physically and mentally demanding and to be effec-
tive, the deputy must possess stamina, self-confidence, in-
tegrity and compassion. About 95 percent of the iob in-
volves contact with the public and understanding of human
relations.

it is a warm, caring and
vibrant community what do
you think the result would be?
I think it would be
phenomenal, revolutionary,
and downright exciting for
everyone in our community
and every Jew in the world
helped by Federation/UJA! I
know it would allow us to
achieve our 1987 goal.
1987 is just beginning. I ask
you to join with me in resolv-
ing to bring in at least one new
contributor.
Our phone line is a hot line to
helping the tens of thousands
of Jewish men, women and
children with life-giving sup-
port, here in our own com-
munity, in Israel and around
the world.
Give us a call at 748-8400 -
our professional staff stands
ready to serve you, and tell
you whether a person is or is
not a UJA contributor.
We are known as the People
of the Book. But people aren't
reading as much these days.
So I ask you to help spread the
word. It is not for nothing that
the Bible says:
"They who turn the many to
Tzedakah shall shine like the
stars."

Behind the Headlines
Israel's Economic Outlook for 1987
The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Reconstructionist Judaism
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
In the last section of his book, Profiles in American
Judaism, Marc Lee Raphael, a professor of history at Ohio
State and an ordained rabbi at the Hebrew Union College,
discusses Reconstructionist Judaism as the fourth branch
of American Jewry.
He credits Mordecai M. Kaplan as the founder of this
movement. Born in Lithuania in 1881, Kaplan studied the
Talmud as a child in Vilna. About 1889 or 1890 he came to
New York City and later graduated from the City College
of New York and the Jewish Theological Seminary. In 1902
he obtained a masters degree from Columbia. Raphael
notes that Kaplan provided the ideology at the time he
created Reconstructionism and for several decades
thereafter sanctioned its rabbinic and congregational
institutions.
Kaplan proposed a "reconstructed" historical Judaism
"without supernatural revelation or supernatural 'choos-
ing' of the Jews," but vet maintaining certain customs,
ceremonies, holidays and other traditions.
When this branch of Judaism actually began is subject to
debate. Some argue that it started in 1922 when Kaplan
began to "programmatically reconstruct Judaism." Others
claim it started in 1934 when his book appeared, Judaism
as a Civilization: Toward a Reconstruction of American
Jewish Life. Kaplan himself, however, claimed it started in
January 1935 when he and several friends launched the
Reconstructionist Magazine.
Raphael observed that Kaplan saw the function of
religion as primarily social. By that, it revolved around the
Jewish people. "The people become the source of authority
and 'one's chief source of salvation,' and each individual
Jew was urged to link him-or herself to the destiny of the
Jewish people, to the group," stressed Kaplan, God is "the
power that endorses what we believe ought to be, and that
guarantees that it will be."
Kaplan viewed the mosaic of Jewish civilization as being
comprised of religious as well as secular organizations in
addition to the history of individual Jews, prayers,
language, social hopes, spiritual ideas, art and literature.
The heretical ideas of Kaplan led in 1945 to his excom-
munication by the Union of Orthodox Rabbis. Kaplan
persevered. He declared that Reconstructionist Judaism
was not a new denomination, but a "state of mind." It was
an ideology, which sought to be supportive of the existing
branches of Judaism. His movement was "to provide a ra-
tionale and a program. .of Jewish unity which might
enable Jews to transcend the differences that divide
them."
As part of his program, men and women were completely
equal. Congregational committees under rabbinic leader-
ship should determine halacha for themselves alone and
with as much input as possible.
The year 1968 saw the opening of the Reconstructionist
College in Philadelphia. By 1983, 70 rabbis had been or-

By ELMER WINTER
Chairman, Committee for
Economic Growth of Israel
NEW YORK (JTA) -
What is Israel's economic
outlook for 1987?
Barring unforeseen events,
some encouraging growth can
be expected during the year
ahead, although problems will
remain. Much will depend on
the success of gaining ap-
proval of the Finance
Ministry's new economic plan,
which has been under heavy
fire from labor, the business
community and Cabinet
Ministers ranging from
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin (Labor) to Housing
Minister David Levy (Likud-
Herut).
The plan was formulated by
Finance Minister Moshe
Nissim and Michael Bruno, the
Governor of the Bank of
Israel. The embattled plan is
undergoing scrutiny by two ad
hoc ministerial committees.
The extent of the opposition
to the plan, which requires
continued sacrifices from
trade unions, manufacturers
and government ministries,
underscores one fundamental
fact: despite Israel's spec-
tacular progress in beating
back inflation and its success
in maintaining currency
market, the people of Israel
must tighten their belts still
further if the nation is to make
further progress on the road to
economic independence.
The gains made in the past
year offer solid reason to voice
confidence in Israel's economic
future. Inflation plunged from
285 percent in 1985 to 18 per-
cent in 1986. Exports rose, the
government budget was cut
and unemployment remained
stable at seven percent the
same rate as in the United
States.
Especially significant: there
were few strikes in either the
public or private sector last
year. At the same time, the na-
tion's foreign currency
reserves rose by $1 billion (to
$4 billion), their highest level
since 1983.
From Stability To Growth
In 1987 Israel is likely to
move from stability to growth.
Here is my forecast:
Despite the hardships re-
quired, the new economic plan
will be adopted, with some
revisions, by the government.
The proposal would ease
foreign currency restrictions
and calls for an overhaul of the
country's capital market and
for tax reductions. There
would also be further cuts in
government spending, wages
would remain at present levels
and there would be no devalua-
tion of the currency.
The rate of inflation in
1987 will be in the 9 to 12 per-
cent range.
Unemployment will re-
main at about 7 percent.
Israel's worldwide exports
will rise 7 to 10 percent over
the 1986 figure, helped in part
by increases in black Africa
Cameroon, Ivory Coast,
Liberia, Nigeria, Togo and
Zaire. These and other African
countries are expected to open
their markets to Israeli pro-
ducts. New export oppor-
tunities may also develop in
the People's Republic of China
and Japan.
Export to the U.S. will
keep climbing. In 1985, Israel
for the first time exported
more goods and services to the
U.S. than it imported. While
end-of-the-year figures are not
yet available, the first half of
1986 showed the balance of
trade even more favorable to
Israel than in 1985.
Foreign investments will
expand as a result of the Free
Trade Agreement between the
U.S. and Israel.
Washington will provide
some $3 billion in economic aid
to Israel. On the other hand, it
is unlikely that Israel will
receive the $1.5 billion in
emergency grants that the
United States made in 1985
and 1986.
Israel will start receiving
additional orders from the
U.S. for research in the
Strategic Defense Initiative
("Star Wars") program.
Agreements for the first $10
million in research by Israel
have already been signed by
the two governments.
More Israeli firms will
come to Wall Street for financ-
ing. Over the last 18 months,
Israeli companies raised about
$200 million through public
stock offerings and the is-
suance of debentures.
Israel's trade balance will
get a boost from the fact that
prices on imports from Europe
will drop in 1987 in accordance
with regulations of the Euro-
pean Economic Community, of
which Israel is an associate
member. The same will apply
to imports from the U.S. under
the terms of the Free Trade
agreement. These savings will
be passed on to Israeli con-
sumers by the government,
rather than increase the pur-
chase tax on foreign goods.
Jerusalem will mount a
major drive to persuade
American Jewish organiza-
tions to bring their members
to Israel to celebrate the 40th
anniversary of the Jewish
State and the 20th anniversary
of the unification of Jerusalem.
This drive is expected to in-
crease U.S. tourism to Israel
a major source of revenue
that fell drastically in 1986 -
as early as next month.
More American consumers
will be buying Israeli-made
products in a widening net-
work of retail outlets
throughout the U.S.
Israel will benefit
significantly from the recent
approval by President Reagan
of a plan to reduce the interest
rate Israel pays on outstan-
ding military loans from the
U.S. (Egypt is another
beneficiary of this plan.) Over
the next four years, Israel will
save more than $1 billion in in-
terest on outstanding loans
from the U.S. of some $5.5
billion.
A Down Side Item
About the only item on the
down side is that Israel's pro-
gram to sell government-
owned companies to private
entrepreneurs is likely to make
only minimal progress in 1987
unanimous in urging that the
government rid itself of the
burden of operating so many
industrial and other enter-
prises that would be far better
off in private hands.
All in all, however, 1987
should be a good year for
Israel's economy. This outlook
could of course be adversely af-
fected by political upheaval in
Israel, military attack against
the country or harmful new
findings in the Iran-Contra af-
fair. Otherwise, Israel's
economy can be expected to
grow moderately stronger in
the year ahead.
Defense Ministry Says 'No'
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Defense Ministry has
refused to allow two prominent Palestinians to attend an
international symposium on the Middle East at the Univer-
sity of San Diego in southern California next week. The ban
apparently does not apply to three other Palestinians in-
vited to the symposium.
The two denied permission to leave are Mustapha Abd
A-Nabi Natshe, the former Mayor of Hebron, and Fayez
Abu-Rahme, a lawyer from Gaza. Security sources said
there was concern they would use the occasion to meet with
hostile elements but did not elaborate.
NATSHE AND ABU-RAHME were to have been part
of a large Israeli delegation. The invitees include Abba
Eban, chairman of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee; Knesset members, David Libai and
Shulamit Aloni; Prof. Shimon Shamir, a leading expert on
Middle East affairs; Hanna Seniora, editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic daily EUFajer; Hatem Abu-Ghazale, a
Palestinian educator from Gaza; and Dr. Sari Nusseibeh of
Bir Zeit University in the West Bank.

Memories From '67 to '87
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Editor'* Note: The following
information is compiled from
the archives of The Jewish
Floridian of Greater Fort
Lauderdale.
As the Federation kicked off
the 1981-82 campaign year,
The Jewish Floridian, in
response to a greater number
of Jews living in North
Broward in search of a Jewish
identity, goes weekly, two
months short of its 10 year
anniversary.
The Federation, also respon-
ding to the increasing needs,
moved to the west side of
town. The new address, 8360
W. Oakland Park Blvd.
In early September, the
Federation's Campaign
Cabinet called a special
meeting to decide that a half
million dollar increase in
pledges must be recorded for
the 1982 campaign to achieve
the goal which is vitally needed
programs here in Fort Lauder-
dale, in Israel and overseas.
With the New Year 5742,
Federation president Victor
Gruman calls for lasting-peace
in the Middle East because
"there is no end to the role the
State of Israel must continue
to play for Jews throughout
the world."
The joy of the New Year was
brought to the 'shut-ins' of the
community by Federation's
corps of volunteer rabbis. Ser-
vices were conducted at
numerous nursing homes
across the county as well as
the prisons.'
As Fort Lauderdale's
leaders were anxiously
awaiting the start of the cam-
paign, a tragedy in the Middle
East dampened the spirits.

Victor Gruman along with the
Board of the Federation
mourned the death of Anwar
Sadat, president of Egypt.
"His loss will create a great
void of leadership in the Mid-
dle East and we hope his ef-
forts for peace in that region
will be fulfilled," Gruman said.
Realizing the growing im-
portance of the North
Broward community, national
figures lend their support for
the 1982 campaign. Among
them was Ted Koppel,
Nightline anchorman, who ad-
dressed the Federation's In-
itial Gifts dinner. Israeli col-
umnist Annette Dulzin spoke
at the Women's Division Lion
event and Dr. Ruth Gruber ad-
dressed the Woodlands men.
Leo Goodman, long time
friend of the Federation, ac-
cepted the voluntary chair-
manship of the Federation's
Board of Trustees. Co-
chairman is Sheldon Polish.
Inter nationally-known
developer Leonard Farber,
hosted the New Leadership
Division on his yacht.
On a positive note, the more
than 100 people who attended
the Initial Gifts dinner pledged
more than $1,001,000 to spark
the UJA campaign.
On the Women's Division
front, over 65 women joined
the elite Lion Division pledg-
ing a minimum of $5,000 to the
Women's Division of the
Federation campaign.
Super Sunday this year rais-
ed in excess of $131,250 as the
Tamarac Jewish Center, once
again, hosts the event and is
most cooperative.
As of February, increased
giving pushed the campaign to
the halfway mark at
$2,200,000. The campaign was
seeing the pot of gold at the
end of the rainbow because at
the end of February, the total
reached the $2,700,000 mark,
with many more events to be
held.
With Passover upon us and
Shavuot several days away,
Ethel Waldman, general cam-
paign chair urges that more
needs to be done in the cam-
paign homestretch and the
community responds. For the
third year in a row, the United
Jewish Appeal campaign has
recorded pledges totalling
more than $3 million with
numbers still coming in.

In each European communi-
ty, participants will be met by
young Israeli leadership and
briefed by American and
Israeli ambassadors and other
key political figures. Par-
ticipants will also be paired by
profession, to foster a
stimulating international ex-
change of ideas and provide an
opportunity to compare each

workshops on issues concern-
ing all Jews.
In Israel, participants will
learn about development in the
Galilee and Israeli security;
settlements in the Negev; the
Israeli political system; the
status of Ethiopian im-
migrants and the next phase
for Project Renewal the

program assisting Israelis in
distressed neighborhoods.
There will also be briefings by
government, industry and

The Israeli program will also
include Kabbalat Shabbat at
the Western Wall and
memorial services at Yad
Vashem.

JERUSALEM A South African author and 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 Barbarians."
JERUSALEM Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel
said that if and when Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
comes to Washington for a summit meeting, he will try to
bring a half million people to Washington to demonstrate
on behalf of Soviet Jews. "What I want to do is that the
civil rights march of the 1%0's should be succeeded by the
human rights march for Soviet Jewry in the eighties in
Washington," Wiesel said.
JERUSALEM The Absorption Ministry released
figures indicating that 19 percent of Israelis in the 18-29
age group are likely to emigrate. The tendency toward
yerida dropped to 9 percent in the 39-49 age group, but
overall the propensity of Israelis to leave the country is
alarming.
JERUSALEM An Orthodox woman has challenged
the religious establishment for her right to serve on the
local religious council in Yeruhan, southern Israel, to which
she was appointed several months ago. Lea Shakdiel, 35, a
school teacher active in public affairs, was nominated to the
religious council by the local authority on which she serves
as Labor Party councillor. But the appointment was block-
ed by the Religious Affairs Ministry, which informed her
that it was "not in the realm of possibility" for a woman to
fill such a post.

JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE OF BROWARD COUNTY
Refuseniks' Son Calls on Americans To
Step Up Struggle for Soviet Jews
As American Jews, we are
confronted with a paradoxical
concern about our future.
Though this country has pro-
vided Jews with unlimited op-
portunities, Judaism may
grow weaker as a result. Inter-
marriage one of the fruits of
freedom is a contributing
link.
Intermarriage (the union
between people of two dif-
ferent faiths where one part-
ner in the marriage remains
non-Jewish) has always
challenged and threatened the
Jewish community from the
time of Jacob up to the pre-
sent, and one assumes it
always will. While no one
views intermarriage as healthy
for the continuance of the
Jewish people, it need not be
terminal. American Jewish in-
termarriages identify
predominantly with the Jewish
community. In a National
Jewish Population Study,
three-quarters of the children
of intermarried Jews were be-
ing reared as Jews. Regardless
of the definition of Jewish
rearing, it does not appear
that intermarriage will
diminish the number of
Americans who consider
themselves Jewish.
However, intermarriage
may threaten the future of
American Jewry qualitatively.
It tends to dimmish many im-
portant aspects of Jewish in-
volvement and observance.
Although some intermarriages
produce Jews of substantial
commitment, most result in
lower levels of Jewish
knowledge and practice.
Among most intermarried
families and their children who
identify as Jews, their
Jewishness appears less obser-
vant even though identified.
In the past, among all
religious denominations, lack
of education, lack of religious
upbringing, and parental
failure to give religious direc-
tion were some of the reasons
attributed to intermarriages.
Today, studies show other-
wise. Young people have
greater opportunities for
travel, study and meeting peo-
ple from different
backgrounds at school, college
and work. There exists an at-
mosphere of openness in
America that enables barriers
to be crossed and cross-
cultural meetings to take place
in an unprecedented way.
In the liberal, ethical, in-
dependent culture of today, all
religions are often dismissed,
but the influence of traditional
religious ideas, quietly, often
invisibly, permeates almost
every area of our lives. The
majority of Americans were
brought up in a traditional
religion, and the values that
they learned in their houses of
worship, as well as the
customs, rituals and
ceremonies, still influence
their attitudes and thinking.
However, long held religious
traditions are seldom actively
cherished as part of the
American dream.
Unless a married couple of
different faiths divests their
lives of all religious obser-
vances, they are certain to ex-
perience conflict at one point
or another. Couples must
realize that reactions to
religious issues are seldom
based on theological or
philosophical differences, but
are more often than not, emo-
tional in scope.
For years the Jewish com-
munity has reacted to inter-
marriage with outrage, fear
and grief but protestations
have failed to solve the pro-
blem. If anything, the protests
make the couple feel like out-
casts from the Jewish world.
We, at Jewish Family Ser-
vice of Broward County, are
aware of the issues of inter-
married couples and their
families. We are here to help
and are offering programs
which we hope will benefit
those involved. Family Life
Education programs, in-
dividual, family and group
counseling, will be provided as
requested. For more informa-
tion about these services to in-
termarried couples and their
families, please call Laurie B.

dale 749-1506.

NEW YORK, N.Y. -
Former refusenik Aleksandr
Slepak told United Jewish Ap-
peal leadership recently that
the third largest Jewish
population in the world is in
danger of extinction through
persecution and attrition if
current Soviet policies prevail.
"Until the Gorbachev
regime," Slepak said, "nobody
dared to plant guns and drugs
on Jewish teachers. Nobody
dared to be so bold." He called
for "all Americans, Jews and
non-Jews, to increase the
pressure to secure the freedom
of the Jewish people."
His audience, the UJA Na-
tional Campaign Cabinet, met
in Washington, D.C., to shape
the issues and establish the
framework of fund-raising ac-
tivities to motivate increased
support for the UJA/Federa-
tion Campaign.
Speaking emotionally of his
parents, Vladimir and Masha
Slepak, whom UJA National
chairman Martin F. Stein
visited on a recent trip to
Moscow, Slepak said. "We
have to make it clear to the
Soviets that, whatever the
American Administration, we
will not accept these ups and
downs. My parents and
400,000 other refuseniks have
been through five Summits.
Every time hope. Every time
disappointment. Refuseniks
have many serious health pro-
blems because of the stress;
their life is running out."
The Soviets, he warned, 'will
not offer 'presents' during this
current period of unrest in the
White House." Furthermore,
he noted, "The Soviets are
blaming Secretary of State
(George) Shultz and President
Reagan for halting the
negotiations on Soviet Jewish
emigration that were planned
for Reykjavik." After the
failure of those meetings,
Slepak, in Reykjavik to plead
for his parents' release, asked
Soviet representatives, "Who
gave you the right to tie
human beings to weapons
literally tying bodies to
rockets? Setting the stage for
Campaign planning, National
Chairman Stein vowed, "The
UJA will continue to focus the
attention of the American
community on the plight of
Soviet Jewry."
He announced that the 1986
Campaign has raised $656.1
million so far and projected a
final Campaign total of $693
million.

Briefly
Roll Call of Victims
The massacre of 21 Jews during Sabbath morning
prayers in Istanbul's Neve Shalom (Oasis of Peace)
synagogue deserves to be remembered as the bloodiest of
its type since Arab terrorists began the wholesale
targeting of Jewish houses of worship and their con-
gregants in European capitals and major cities sue years
ago. The roll call of these new victims of the Arab-Israeli
conflict includes:
March 29,1985. A bomb placed under a seat in a Paris
theatre showing a Jewish film festival exploded, wounding
18 people.
October 9, 1982. Two men with hand grenades and
machine guns attacked worshippers leaving Rome's main
synagogue after Sabbath services. A 2-year-old boy was
killed and 34 people, including his 4-year-old brother, were
wounded.
August 9,1982. Gunmen firing machine guns and throw-
ing hand grenades attacked Jo Goldenberg's, kosher
restaurant in a Jewish neighborhood of Paris, during the
lunch hour, killing sue people and injuring 21.
October 20, 1981. A truck-bomb exploded near a
synagogue in the predominantly Jewish diamond district of
Antwerp, Belgium. Three persons were killed and 106
wounded.
August 29, 1981. Two Arab terrorists armed with
machine pistols and hand grenades attacked a synagogue in
Vienna as 200 people were preparing to leave the building
after a bar mitzvah. Two people were killed and 20
wounded.
October 3, 1981. A bomb exploded in front of a
synagogue in Paris 20 minutes before High Holy services
inside were scheduled to end. Four people were killed and
12 wounded.
When will it stop?

Publicity Chair
"Equal Access and Equal
Value"
Fund-raising is not tor
everybody. Our Women's Divi-
sion is involved with purposes,
functions, activities ana mis-
sions that go beyond fund-
raising. Our primary purpose
is, of course, raising money for
Jews both around the world
and at home. Until the day
that these funds are no longer
needed, that objective will
never change. At the same
time, we consider ourselves a
vital part of every aspect of
the entire community. We
must, therefore, become an ad-
vocate of women's issues,
especially Jewish women's
issues. How can we remove the
barriers that keep women
from participating equally and
fully in all aspects of life? What
is our role in insuring women's
equality, safety and health?
Are we preparing our
daughters for the future
realities of their lives? Are we
helping to transform the work
place to accommodate
women's work and family
roles? Are we responding to
the feminization of poverty?
When most of us were
young, we expected to grow up
to be wives, mothers and
sometime workers. Today girls
must prepare for their lives in
the opposite order, that is;
workers, mothers and wives,
"fifty to 75 peramt of Jewish
women, depending on the com-
munity, work outside the home
for pay, including a substantial
number with children under
five years, says Dr. Gary A.
Tobin of Brandeis University.
We still suffer from what is
euphemistically called the
"Cinderella Syndrome." That
is ... after she completes her
education (High School, Col-
lege or University), a young
woman works for a while and
then she is discovered by a
prince ... to be carried off to
the castle, apartment or con-
do. She will then be kept so
busy taking care of the little
princes and princesses that she
will never leave home to work.
She will never have to ... and
certainly never want to work.
She and the prince live happily
ever after until the age of
100, when they will die at the
same exact moment.
The reality is quite different!
Today less than 7 percent of
American families are
represented by the Norman
Rockwell image of two
children, with mommy at home
and daddy at work. More
women work because they
must help support the family
or are the sole support of
single parent families. Women
and men are in the paid work
force for the very same
reasons, although women are
still paid far less. This wage
gap of $.59 to every $1 earned
by men is directly attributed to
sex discrimination and con-
tributes to the level of female
poverty. Jewish organizations
have to recognize the fact that
most Jewish poor are women.
Single parent families, almost
all headed by women, make up
half of the total of Jews living
in poverty. A single mother
supporting children and hav-
ing to pay for day care actually
needs more, not less money,
than a man in a comparable job
with no day care to concern
him. She has all of the same ex-
penses without many of the
same benefits. Half of all
women work in jobs with no
pension and 80 percent of
women of retirement age have
no pension.
In the future, more and more
women will need to be self sup-
porting. They will contribute
to the financial support of
their children, be responsible
for their own retirement and
Rrovide for their own old age.
[inety percent of female
students in high school today,
can look forward to working
full time outside of the home
for over 30 years. We must
start today to provide counsel-
ing and build support services
to help our girls develop a
positive self-image, good self-
esteem and an understanding
of career opportunities. At the
present time, well over twice
as much funding is being spent
on programs for boys than for
girls. Public and private agen-
cies ^must address this im-
balance today in order to
prepare young women for
their future.
It is impossible not to
recognize the multiple rolee
women play in today s society
... in the family, in the work
force and in our own communi-
ty. We accept and welcome the
many responsibilities that ac-
company these roles. Susan
Weidman Schenider's newly
updated guide and sourcebook
for today s Jewish woman call-
ed, 'Jewish and Female,' ad-
dresses many of the concerns
and dilemmas facing us today.
It should be required reading
for all people serving on the
board of any Jewish organiza-
tion. Indeed, several sections
are devoted to volunteerism in
Jewish communities across the
country. It is interesting to
note that our own Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale is
in the forefront on some issues
pertaining to woman and sadly
... far lacking in others.
There has been a great deal
of discussion in recent years
about the many crises in
Jewish life. There has been a
predicament because the birth
rate is too low. There has been
a disaster because intermar-
riage is too high. There has
been an urgency because we
do not raise enough money.
These issues may or may not
be genuine emergencies ...
they certainly are areas of ge-
nuine concern. A very real and
present crisis for Women's
Division is the shortage of
volunteers. We constantly call
on the same people over and
over and over again to do the
same job, year after year. We
must reach out to include a
new and wider circle of in-
terested people. Data from all
over the United States con-
firms that up to 80 percent of
Jewish women never volunteer
for any Jewish organization.
Women's involvement in
Jewish life for the vast majori-
ty of the rest of the population
is limited to only one hour a
month. Yet we know that
there is no stereotypical
Jewish woman in the 1980s.
We can and should be able to
appeal to all women of all ages
and stages through Federa-
tion. We are planning more ac-
tivities that will interest
women in the business com-
munity as well as those who
are at home. We must ask
them to join us. It is im-
perative that we create a com-
munity that values all Jews,
women as much as men. This
means not standing by as
observers but more women
must spring forth as active
participants, willing to take
risks. Only by being visible can
we really make a difference.
On her deathbed in 1897,
Lucy Stone, who had
dedicated her life to the double
purpose of abolishing slavery
and advancing the rights of
women, told her daughter:
"Make the world better. It is
hoped that each of us will con-
tinue to share in that
responsibility.
WOMEN'S DIVISIONQ
Women's Division Plans Bruncheon
and Concert for February 9
On Monday, Feb. 9, the
Women's Division will host its
annual community event in
support of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale/United Jewish Appeal
Campaign. The Kol I shah
Bruncheon and Concert will be
held at the Chateau de Ville
Restaurant on Federal
Highway in Lighthouse Point.
The Bruncheon theme, "Kol
Ishah," means "Woman's
Voice," and the three co-
chairs, Susan Canarick, Roily
Weinberg and Esther Wolfer,
are asking each woman in the
community to speak up and be
counted by making a minimum
gift of $365 in her own name to
the 1987 Women's Division
Campaign.
"A Dollar A Day For UJA is
what $365 represents," said
Esther Wolfer. "I am sure that
most women in this communi-
ty can put aside a dollar a day
to help fellow Jews here in
North Broward County, in
Israel, and around the world,"
Wolfer continued, noting that
every pledge to the Federa-
tion/UJA campaign is payable
over the course of the entire
year.
In keeping with the Kol
Ishah theme, those who attend
the Bruncheon will hear the
words and music of guest
speaker and artist Zoya
Leybin. "We are very excited
about this program," said Roi-
ly Weinberg, "because we are
offering a unique cultural op-
portunity. Zoya is a concert
violinist with the San Fran-
cisco Symphony, and she will
perform for us at the Brun-
cheon, as well as tell us the
story of how she raised her
voice in protest to the Soviet
government."
According to Susan
Canarick, Ms. Lfeybin's story is
particularly moving. "When
Zoya was finally allowed to
leave the Soviet Union," said
Canarick, "she was forced to
leave her seven year-old
daughter behind. As mothers,
and as daughters, each of us
can only begin to imagine the
heartbreak of that decision."
For the Leybins, the story
finally had a happy ending,
when in 1984, after ten long
years of struggle, Zoya was
able to secure her daughter's
release and the family was
reunited. But this is only one
happy ending, for as Canarick
reminds us, there are still hun-
dreds of thousands of Jews
trapped in the Soviet Union.

Resort at Indian Spring Forms Resale and
Rental Properties Brokerage Company
The Resort at Indian Spring announces the formation of
a Resale and Rental Properties Brokerage Company. The
on-site general realty operation is being headed by Tom T.
Thomas.
Thomas has aleady sold more than $25 million of Indian
Spring residential property as owner of Tom T. Thomas
Realty. "I chose to self Indian Spring exclusively since the
inception of the community," said Thomas, who had been
previously affiliated with Cadillac Fairview of Toronto.
"I have been a great advocate of the Indian Spring
lifestyle all along," he added. "My wife and I both enjoy liv-
ing here. And now, with a most attractive new offering of
homes being introduced at Indian Spring, we anticipate
much general-realty activity."
Indian Spring launched two new residential projects last
month, giving its 1,200 existing residents a 10-day special
preview period of the "Laurelwood" and "Evian" patio
nomes as well as a new garden-condominium concept.
Buyers have their choice of several new luxury home
designs, including garden condominiums from $97,000,
patio homes from $176,000, and custom single-family
residences from $310,000. Six million dollars in sales were
recorded during the initial resident's preview period.
The community's very popular Club life emanates from
the personalized service at the bi-level Clubhouse, where
outstanding dining and entertainment are always on the
menu, combined with on-going social and cultural events
organized by a caring professional staff. A 25-court Har-
Tru tennis complex and two 18-hole championship golf
courses provide the finest facilities for the very active
members, along with a giant lap pool adjacent to the new
Greenhouse Cafe, offering casual dining all day long with
an outdoor dining terrace.
A native of Jacksonville, Thomas attended Georgia In-
stitute of Technology. He has been handling sales in coun-
try club and golfing communities in South Florida for the
past 20 years.
Indian Spring's Sales Center, incorporating the Resale
and Rental Properties Brokerage, is open daily from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. For further information, please call (305)

An Eyewitness Account on UJA In Action
A Personal View of the 'Otzma' Program
By SALLY FRIEDMAN
Editor'* Note: The writer's
daughter is one of the 56
students recently in Israel as
the first gorup of "Otzma"
participants.
"Be brave for her ... "Be
Brave for her..."
In my head, I had rehearsed
the scene a hundred times, but
my heart had stubbornly refus-
ed to learn the script.
So there I stood on a late
summer afternoon, crowds
swirling around me at Ken-
nedy Airport, crying the tears
I'd promised myself I wouldn't
as I said goodbye to our Amy.
This was no ordinary good-
bye, no countdown till
Thanksgiving or Parent's
Weekend. This time, the good-
bye stretches over ten months,
over continents, over miles too
awesome to contemplate.
Amy is off to Israel, the land
of her fathers, and she goes
gladly, with the zest of a
modern pioner. She goes to
Israel to learn what no college
or graduate school could teach
her about devotion to a dream.
The first time we heard the
word "Otzma" was months
before this August day. Back
then, Otzma was a vague con-
cept, just another program
that Amy was exploring.
"She's not serious," we told
ourselves about Amy's deter-
mination to spend her 22nd
year in Israel.
We had to learn about our
middle daughter ...
We realized by the spring of
Amy's senior year at the
University of Pennsylvania
that Israel was no fleeing no-
tion, no detour from the world
beyond the halls of ivy. Nor
was Otzma just another pro-
gram. "It's wonderful just
what I'm looking for!" Amy
had insisted. And we felt a
surge of panic.
Enclosed within this year
had been lunatic bombings by a
madman named Qaddafi and
heart-stopping newspaper
photos of airport massacres. If
our fears about our daughter's
safety were irrational, they
were still mighty.
So we cajoled and offered
compromises. Our dinner table
conversations were punc-
tuated with entreatiesand
"wont's you consider's?"
Like a patient sculptor, Amy
chipped away at our fears,
fashioning reasons and passion
that ultimately prevailed.
In the end, Amy asked
nothing more of us than our
blessing. It was painfully long
in coming.
Otzma has beckened Ami in
its first year of life. The shinn-
ing hope of the program is as
simple and as profound as
this: Bring young adults to
Israel for a year of service,
educate them in the Hebrew
language and culture, ask
them to work with their hands,
their hearts and their mind,
and you will create a corps of
future leaders dedicated to the
dream of Zion.
Otzma dares to suggest that
the notion of Jews serving
Jews can transcend old
notions of "objigation." That
by exposing y lung volunteers
to the realities and complex-
ities of Israeli society, they will
truly share in nation building.
Visionary? Indeed.
But what a vision!
With Amy, we assimilated
the details: Once selected by a
participating Federation, Amy
would become part of a nation-
wide program coordinated by
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions in cooperation with the
Jewish Agency, the Israeli
Forum, a newly-established
group dedicated to strengthen-
ing ties to American Jewry,
andWZO.
Suddenly, our Amy was link-
ed with agencies and planners
and activists on two con-
tinents. Like her, we were
dazzled by the scope and spirit
of Otzma. And all of us were
unbashedly awed by a program
architected to guarantee im-
mersion and challenge.
We devoured the informa-
tion as it arrived, and, beyond
apprehension now, shared in
the dream. The Otzma
schedule hangs on our kitchen
bulletin board. It will be our
touchstone to Amy's next ten
months. And somewhere in Tel
Aviv is a family that will be
Amy's for those months. If
Ulpan and Kibbutz,
agricultural work on a moshav
and social service in a Project
Renewal town are central to
the Otzma program, so, too, is
something far more elusive.
Amy has already been linked
with an Israeli family which
will welcome her, host her on
holidays, ease her cultural
odyssey, and, hopefully, pro-
vide emotional nourishment.
The night before Amy left
for her New York orientation,
I wrote that family a letter. I
tried to tell its members what
it will mean to us to know that
across the world, Amy has a
home. No words were ade-
quate to express our gratitude.
Do we have anxieties about
our daughter and what lies
ahead for her? Yes! Yes! Yes!
How will it feel for her on
February nights when she is

on a Moshav harvesting crops,
bone-tired, homesick, perhaps,
and straining every muscle in
her body?
How will it be for her in a
Project Renewal town where
she may serve the elderly, the
sick, or school children with
exotic faces?
Of course we worry. We are
parents!
But then we think of the
final airport meeting at which
these young men and women
sang and cheered and embrac-
ed like family.
We picturee Amy climbing
the ancient hills, drinking in
the sights and sounds of
Jerusalem, that ultimate
seductress. We try to imagine
her adventures, her link to an
ancient heritage that spans
centuries, generations, oceans
of tears and we rejoice that
for now, our daughter belongs
to Otzma. This Wink of time
will always be hers to claim.
At Kennedy Airport, when
that inevitable moment of par-
ting came, I chose to be last,
standing back as Amy's father
held her in his arms for a long
moment, as her sisters em-
braced her, reluctant to let go.
What could I say? How could
I say it?
- What message to send with a
beloved daughter to sustain
her for ten months?
I chose a single word.
"Shalom!" I whispered to
Amy.
And we both smiled through
our tears.

Dayan Still Arouses Many Passions
Continued from Page 2
negotiate the armistice after the
War of Independence. He conceiv-
ed the policy of an open border
with Jordan after 1967 and, most
important, as Foreign Minister in
Menachem Begin's government
(which he joined after controver-
sially leaving his own party), he
was one of the architects of the
Camp David Peace Accords with
Egypt.
FOR MUCH of world Jewry
and supporters of Israel, Dayan
symbolized the sabra or native
Israeli. Born in 1915 in Deganya,
the first kibbutz, he grew up on
Nahalal, the first moshav. His
father, Shmuel Dayan, was a
Knesset member and a leader of
the moshav movement, and his
mother was a popular and forceful
figure in the Socialist Zionist
movement.
Dayan was endowed with a
fierce individualism and in-
dependence that often alienated
him from Israel's establishment.
After the War of Independence,
the IDF was made up of officers
who had joined the British army
and those who had fought in the
Palmach.
Dayan antagonized them both.
He despised British spit and
polish, and when he was Com-
mander of Jerusalem in 1949, he
dismissed his aide-de-camp for
persistently saluting and taking
too much care over his dress. On
the other hand, he felt that
Palmach veterans had injected a
form of elitism into the IDF that
was harmful and nationally
divisive.
Indeed Dayan's particular
talents might never have shone
through if it were not for the fact
that Ben-Gurion saw him as a kin-
dred spirit and fellow maverick.
IT WAS Ben-Gurion who in-
sisted that Dayan become Chief of
Staff, ensured that he be elected
to the Knesset in 1959 and ap-
pointed him Minister of
Agriculture. In his five years in
that ministry, Dayan
characteristically performed the
unexpected. A child of the settle-
ment movement, the agricultural
establishment expected Dayan to
favor their cause. But at cabinet
sessions, Dayan would insist that
more money was needed for in-
dustrial growth, while agriculture
had limited potential.
In 1965, Dayan followed, albeit
reluctantly, his mentor, Ben-
Gurion when he split from the
Mapai (Labor) Party and formed
his own Rafi list, together with
others of his closest supporters
such as Shimon Peres, Yitzhak
Navori and Teddy Kollek. The
split was repaired before the Six-
Day War of 1967 when national
unity became the pressing
priority.
It was during this period that
Dayan's popularity in Israel
became apparent. As Egyptian
President Gamal Abdel Nasser
threatened Israel in May, 1967,
there was an irresistible ground-
swell of opinion that Dayan be ap-
pointed Minister of Defense. It
was generally felt that Prime
Minister Levy Eshkol and his
cabinet did not have the daring
imagination to defeat the coun-
try's enemies.
HISTORY HAS proven that
Dayan was the right man for the
job. What was incredible was the
sense of security that Dayan was
able to instill even before battle
A Diversified Jewish
commenced. Dayan's first wife,
Ruth, recalls overhearing some
women chatter on the eve of the
Six-Day War. "Now that Dayan if
Minister of Defense," one said, "I
can sleep soundly at nights."
Dayan possessed a charisma
which is the privilege of few peo-
ple. This charisma often got into
deep waters, and he gained a
reputation for sexual profligacy.
His womanizing as well as his
rather high-handed attitude to
people and especially his attitude
to archeological artifacts which he
would acquire sometimes by
dubious methods in support of his
consuming hobby, were often used
to depict him as a ruthless man
who took whatever he wanted.
This was somewhat of an unfair
caricature. The austere socialism
of Degania and Nahalal always re-
mained in his blood as did a keen
sense of justice. He once caused a
traffic accident through reckless
driving. Unlike many of his
Knesset colleagues, he waived his
parliamentary immunity and in-
sisted on standing trial. He was
found guilty and had his drivers'
license suspended for three
months.
THOUGH IN the words of Ruth
Dayan, "Women he had never
met would throw themselves at
his feet." Moshe Dayan was
essentially a family man. Divorced
from Ruth in 1971, he married his
second wife Rachel, with whom he
lived until his death. Dayan is also
survived by two sons Udi, who
works the family plot at Nahalal;
Assi, an actor and film producer,
and his daughter, Yael, an ac-
complished novelist and Labor
Party activist who is tipped to
follow her father and grandfather
into the Knesset.

Inaugurated as President of
Israel Bonds Sabra Society
Robert Klein, one of
America's most popular come-
dians and prominent Broad-
way, Hollywood and television
actor, was inaugurated as na-
tional president of the Sabra
Society, the honor society of
the Israel Bond Organization's
New Leadership Division, at a
recent Dinner-Dance at the
Waldorf-Astoria in New York.
Mr. Klein was the recipient
of the Israel Cultural Award in
acknowledgement of his
outstanding contributions to
the performing arts and to
numerous humanitarian and
philanthropic causes which
benefit Israel.
The Sabra Society consists
of young business and profes-
sional men and women in the
United States and Canada who
flu-chase $1,000 or more in
srael Bonds each year.
Previous presidents of the
society have included actress
Liv Ullmann, Rita Moreno and
Jane Alexander, Actor Elliott
Gould, composer Marvin
Hamlisch, TV comedy star
Gabe Kaplan and singer/actor
Mike Burstyn.
Israel Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir, in a cabled
message from Jerusalem, told
members of the Israel Bond
Sabra Society that through
their efforts, they are "helping
to fulfill the promise of a bet-
ter future for Israel, the
Jewish people and the vital
work of Israel Bonds."
He added: "You understand
and support our efforts to
stabilize the economy and
move toward economic
growth. You are also
strengthening your partner-
ship with Israel as well as
developing and attracting new
generations of young Bond
leaders."

The Torah reading for this
Sabbath deals with the happy
reunion of Joseph with his
brothers. Not being recognized
by his brothers after a separa-
tion of more than 20 years, he
decides to put them to a
number of tests to see whether
or not they had repented from
their earlier plans to do him
harm. At first he pretends to
be angry with his brothers,
which makes them wonder,
and also fearful, at what this
important person, the Viceroy
of all Egypt, may have in store
With Rhyme and
Reason
Car Mitzvah
There she stood a beige
Ford car
So hard to look upon:
Although it was a sunny day,
She had her headlights on!
There inside the parking lot
Outside a Publix door,
Two needless lights kept shin-
ing bright
So I rushed in the store
Directly to the Info Desk.
"Please be sure," I cried,
"To page the driver of the car
Whose lights are on out-
side." ...
The girl did so. A man ran out
In a little while.
I watched him save his
battery,
And then I saw him
smile ...
"MYOB," some wag might
say,
"Why get in the picture?"
But I am glad I seized the
chance

for them. But Joseph soon
finds himself unable to
restrain his emotions and, in a
burst of tears, he reveals his
true identity as a loving and
forgiving brother.
Some of us may wonder why
Joseph should have acted
rather harshly toward his
brothers early in the "testing-
game," to charge them with
spying, to hold one of the
brothers hostage as security
that the youngest, Benjamin,
would be brought to him, and
then concealing a silver cup in
his sack. The Sages explain
that there was no rancor in
Joseph's heart; he just wanted
to be convinced that their
characters had changed and
that they had become better
people. Judah, whom the
>rothers had chosen as their
eader and spokesman, offered
himself as security for his
younger brother, Benjamin,
with the eloquent words to
Joseph, "How shall I go up to
my father if the lad is not with
me?" Joseph now finds his
brother free from their earlier
jealousies and hatred which
almost meant the end of him,
and he decides that they earn-
ed his help and favor. And he
reveals himself with great feel-
ing, saying, "I am Joseph; does
my father yet live* Now,
therefore, be not grieved nor
angry with yourselves that you
sold me here; G-d did send me
before you to preserve life."
The brothers, now laden with
many gifts of food and
livestock to bring to their
father, were urged by Joseph
to bring him to Goshen in
Egypt where the people of
Israel were to make their new
home.
There is an important
message for us here in
America, and in Fort Lauder-
dale, in particular from this
dramatic biblical episode. It is
one of the glories of the
American Jewish community
that we were abl; to ac-
complish so magnificantly in
helping our people who came
from so many lands of oppres-
sion to settle in Eretz Yisrael
and in other lands. From our
earliest beginnings, we have
not shirked our responsibilities
to the needs of our local and
national communities. To
serve these vital needs, we
established the many social,
cultural, and educational in-
stitutions and agencies. This
we did because we understood
that "G-d did send us to
preserve life."

Some of the most useful art
books are those published in
connection with museum ex-
hibitions, either the catalogue
itself or an expanded version
of it. In this instance both a
soft and hardcover edition of
the same text was issued and it
is indeed a major contribution
to the Judaica art reference
shelf of interest both to the
connoisseur and to the more
casual reader.
The book can be enjoyed as
well as evaluated on several
levels: for the descriptive an-
notation of the objects on
display; as a book of lovely
photographic reproductions of
the objects themselves the
permanent record of an
ephemeral event; and for the
scholarly essay on art, which is
a concise analysis of the
historical and esthetic
background in which art and
ceremonial objects were
created for and by the Jewish
people.
The exhibition, and, as a
result, the book, is explicitly
aimed at placing Jewish art in
esthetic context, pointing up
the influences of artistic styles
prevalent in the milieu in
which objects were produced.
The paintings, sculpture, life-
cycle and ritual objects and
cloths were selected for their
uniqueness, their intrinsic
beauty and their rarity
criteria which determine the
content of the book. The ex-
cellent photographs and their
superior reproduction are com-
mendable. Rarely can such
details be discerned on the
printed page.
The annotations accompany
1 ing each illustration, written
by the curatorial staff of the
Jewish Museum include
descriptive and background in-
formation as well as
bibliographic references. Their
scholarship in Jewish and art
source material make this an
important reference work. Ex-
hibition catalogues are often
the only lasting records of ar-
tifacts brought together from
many sources for the specific
exhibition because of genre,
thematic or stylistic relation-
ship, thereafter returning to
their respective private or
museum collections. Happily,
the objects in this exhibition
are owned by the Jewish
Museum, and their provenance
offers a glimpse of the history
of the Jews as well as that of
the museum and its sponsoring
institution, The Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America.
Since the occasion which in-
spired Treasures of the Jewish
Museum is the centennial an-
niversary of the seminary, its
growth and the often dramatic
events which brought many of
the treasures to the museum
are recounted. The great col-
' lection of ceremonial art
amassed from many cultures
by Hadii Ephraim Benguiat,
originally of Turkey, is a case
in point. It was purchased by
the museum through the ef-
forts of Cyrus Adler. During
this tenure as curator of the
Smithsonian Institution Adler
had persuaded Benguiat to
lend the collection to it. Later,
as chancellor of the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, he enlisted the aid of
wealthy benefactors and ar-
ranged the purchase of the col-
lection for the museum. Other
poignant tales of rescue con-
nected with World War II ac-
count for the doubling of the
museum's permanent collec-
tion. Readers will find these
stories of human interest as
well as historical significance.
A sampling of more recent
noteworthy acquisitions is also
included.
The essay by Colin Tobias
Eisler, Professor of Fine Arts
at the New York University
Institute of Fine Arts, entitl-
ed, "By Divine Design: Art as
God's Shadow," traces the
literacy as well as cultural in-
fluences that have been at
work on the creativity
designated as Jewish Art. He
chronicles the development
from the time of the Biblical
Bezalel to the Bezalel School of
Art in Israel and beyond, and
gets a shade too ecstatic for
this reviewer's taste in fitting
the entire scheme into his
theme, inspired by the
etymology of the name Bezal
El In God's Shadow. The
author's range of knowledge is
impressive, his conclusions
provocative if not always
convincing.
Not indexed, but does con-
tain a useful glossary; this
book is highly recommended.

the home of the rich. But you prob-
ably never heard of anyone famous
living there.
However, they're living such
wonderful lives at Emerald Hills, it
doesn't matter to them if they're not
making news. As long as they're
making par. And returning serves.
And going to fancy country club
parties. And eating at fancy restau-
rants. And shopping at Neiman
Marcus or Lord & Taylor.
Considering how A
difficult it is to buy a
home there, you
might wonder why
