event in support of the
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauder-
dale/United Jewish Appeal
Campaign, but according to
Co-Chairs Susan Canarick,
Roily Weinberg and Esther
Wolfer, this year's program
promises to be something
very special.
The program's theme is
"Kol Ishah", which means
"Woman's Voice", and Ms.
Leybin, guest artist and
speaker, will raise her voice
in words and music to tell
her own moving story of
commitment to Jewish life.
From left: Esther Wolfer,
Susan Canarick and Roily
A former Refusenik, Leybin
left the Soviet Union in 1973
to escape the restrictions
imposed on her as an artist
and a Jew.
According to Susan
Canarick, Ms. Leybin's
story is particularly moving.
"When Zoya was finally
allowed to leave the Soviet
Union," said Canarick, "she
was forced to leave her 7
year old daughter behind.
As mothers, and as
daughters, each of us can
only begin to imagine the
heartbreak of that deci-
sion." For the Leybins, the
story finally had a happy en-
ding, when in 1984, after
ten long years of struggle,
Zoya was able to secureher
daughter's release and the
family was re-united. But
this is only one happy en-
ding, for as Canarick
reminds us, there are still
hundreds of thousands of
Jews trapped in the Soviet
"Zoya's story is incredibly
moving and powerful," add-
ed Roily Weinberg, "but
what makes the program
particularly exciting is the
unique cultural opportunity
we are offering. As a con-
cert violinist with the San
Francisco Symphony, Zoya
has a remarkable musical
talent to share with us."
All women in the com-
munity who make a
minimum personal commit-
ment of $365 to the 1987
Women's Division Cam-
paign are invited to attend
this very special event "A
is what $365 represents,"
said Esther Wolfer. "I am
sure that most women in
this community 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
Federation/UJA campaign
is payable over the course of
the entire year.

The 'Impossible' is Possible:
The Case for 1987
The saying: "The difficult
do immediately, the im-
possible takes a little longer,"
is the password of our Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign volunteer
With only one month gone in
1987, this team of dedicated
and devoted men and women,
and let's not forget young peo-
ple, have already achieved $4.5
plus million for the tens of
thousands of our brethren in
need throughout the world.
But then, this has always
been the history of the Jewish
people. As a body, we are
among the smallest minorities.
For 2,000 years, we were
strangers living in strange
lands. For the most part, we
were barely tolerated; often
we were hated and persecuted,
rarely were we entirely
welcome. We learned the bit-
ter lesson that we had to help
each other, because no one else
would help us.
Thirty-eight years ago, we
created a Jewish state, the
third attempt in our 3,700-year
history. We did it the hard
way. We did it in a bad
neighborhood with very tough
and hostile neighbors.
But the State of Israel
wasn't created by the Jews of
Israel alone. It could not have
happened unless all the Jewish
people were involved.
The impossible was achieved
at a painfully high cost in lives
and a generous outpouring of
money. We supplied the funds
and resources the Jews of
Israel supplied the chutzpah,
the know-how and the
Jewish lives.
With the gifts of Federa-
tion/UJA, we helped to create
600 kibbutzim and moshavim.
We provided for health, social
service and humanitarian
And when our 9,000 Ethio-
pian Jewish brethren faced
starvation and persecution, we
were there ready to lend a
financial hand. We took them
from their war-torn villages
and made them children of
Israel, a viable part of that
culture and society.
As members of the Federa-
tion/UJA family, we continue
to help the people of Israel
maintain and foster social and
economic growth despite im-
possible cutbacks. The Jewish
Agency, our action arm in the
Jewish Homeland, is prepared
to increase its efforts if we
provide the funding.
Young Israelis must be able
to get the education they need.
Israel is becoming a world
leader in high technology.
"Brain Power is Israel's ma-
jor resource and it must be
In North Broward County,
equally compelling needs must
be met. Our Jewish community
must continue to grow and
become even stronger. Jewish
education is vital for our
children and their future. Our
own aged must be cared for.
Jewish families must be kept
intact. Those that need help
through our social service
agencies and beneficiaries
must know that help is
Our part of the job is to pro-
ide the funds for life-

enhancing services. That is
what the UJA and our Federa-
tion campaign does.
That is why "The difficult
we do immediately, the im-
possible takes a little longer."
Because for Jews nothing is
difficult or impossible when it
comes to helping our brethren!

Dear Milton:
Words will not express the special praise we at the

you As a tireless volunteer in the Palm-Aire Division
Federation/UJA campaign, your endless hours of solicita-
tion and dedication knows no bounds, but the past year s
work you have accomplished as chairman of the Sunrise
Theatre UJA Benefit, has exceeeded even the greatest
Your diligence and tenacity has brought about a
remarkable response from the members of our North
Broward County community that will, of course, help all of
our Jewish brethren who look to us for social service and
humanitarian programs.
We at Federation/UJA salute you and leave you with this
thought, "Helping others is < commandment that can best
be fulfilled in joy."

of campaign cabinet leaders and workers, and the tens of
thousands of fellow contributors. Thanks for a job well

The plaque will be permanent-

Entin, who served many
years in a great variety of im-
portant Federation positions,
was also actively involved in
the Jewish community of
North Broward. He served as
the original chairman of the

Be It Resolved
No one really likes to make New Year's resolutions. If for
no other reason, one fears that they will not be honored.
Such resolutions, if we confess, are admissions of our own
frailities and disappointments. Whatever the resolutions,
they are our attempts to achieve certain objectives. Well
entrenched in the mainstream of society, Jews, never-
theless, have their own distinctive agenda. Will we do
anything different or more in furtherance of the ideals of
Judaism? Do we have the option to do nothing? Passivity is
easy, but Judaism calls us to lofty goals that mandate
The following is by no means an exhaustive list and an ad-
mittedly embarrassing one in some respects. In the scheme
of time these few take little and even less exertion.
The year 1987 is the year to write a refusenik. Will later
historians compare the Jews of today with American Jewry
of World War I when it came to protesting the Holocaust?
We may not ike and even disapprove of marches and
boycotts, but it takes so little to let a Jew in the Soviet
Union know that we care. A call to the local federation or
any Jewish communal organization should furnish you a
name and address.
The year 1987 is the year to fast on Yom Kippur. It really
means only skipping two meals, for one can eat an early
dinner or late lunch and breaking the fast is generally no
more than a late meal. Why fast beyond the requirements
of the holiday itself? We need to experience the feeling of
hunger even it is only slight and passing. We need to hum-
ble ourselves and appreciate what we have and what many
others do not. It seems part of the Jewish psyche to suffer
and recall unfortunate times even when we celebrate the
best of times. At the height of the wedding ceremony, we
break a glass to remember the destruction of the second
The year 1987 is the year to read a Jewish book. Whether
the subject is fiction or non-fiction, we need to heighten our
knowledge and awareness of the meaning of Judaism. For
many of us, our Jewish education was at best marginal and
short-lived. Hebrew school was torture, and the bar or bas
mitzvah usually signaled the end and not beginning of the
educational process. If we are to teach our children, then
we ourselves must know. A rabbi once commented that we
spend more time studying wine lists in restaurants than we
do on learning our religion.
The year 1987 is the year to spend an evening helping the
homeless. This is an occasion of self-reflection, humility,
and understanding of life. One cannot understand poverty
and the plight of the homeless through the eyes of the news
media. Spend a few hours at any one of the community's
shelters for the homeless. Maybe it will spur one to social
action, a cornerstone of Judaism.
The year 1987 is the year to learn more about the
Holocaust. Surely, it is the greatest tragedy to befall the
Jewish people, but so few Jews really understand it. Six
million died, but what does that mean? Do we know the suf-
fering? Do we fathom the loss of an entire culture? Many
excellent books on the Holocaust exist. Read, for example,
just a page or two from Martin Gilberg's Holocaust in
which he allows the victims, those who survived and those
who perished, to tell their stories.
The list could be endless, but then we would plead that
we do not have the time. Too often we do not wish to make
the time, and how much time do we have?

Leadership group with the Atlanta, GA Federation.

NEW YORK An analysis
of Jewish voting behavior in
the 1986 Congressional and
gubernatorial elections, accor-
ding to a report released today
by the American Jewish Com-
mittee, once again reveals a
strong orientation toward
liberal politics and the
Democratic party. At the same
time, substantial numbers of
Jews appear willing to vote for
moderate and even conser-
vative Republicans if they are
perceived as supportive of
basic Jewish concerns.
Dr. David Singer, AJC's
director of Information and
Research Services, and author
of the report, American Jews
As Voters: The 1986 Elections,
emphasized that Jewish voters
are a diverse lot, with gender,
social class, and religiosity all
playing a role in how different
groups of Jews behave at the
polls. Jewish women tend to be
more liberal than Jewish men;
unprosperous Jews more
Democratic than prosperous
Jews; and Orthodox Jews
more conservative than
Reform Jews, the report
What is exceptional about
Jewish voting behavior in the
United States, Dr. Singer
observed, is the "firm commit-
ment to liberal politics"
despite the relative affluence
of American Jews. The 1984
National Survey of American
Jews, conducted for the AJC
by Prof. Steven Cohen and
quoted in Dr. Singer's report,
"Jews remain dispropor-
tionately liberal. Where com-
parisons with national survey
data were possible, we found
that Jews adopt what may be
regarded as liberal positions
more often, and conservative
views less often, than other
Americans. In instances where
no strict comparisons were
available, we still were able to
discern a clear liberal tilt in
virtually every issue area .."
As a corollary of their
political liberalism, Dr. Singer
pointed out, American Jews
tend to identify strongly with
the Democratic party, voting
Democratic by an average of
25 percent more than the
general electorate in every
presidential election since
1924. In the 1984 Reagan-
Mondale race, between 67 and
70 percent of Jews cast their
vote for Democrat Walter
Mondale. Jewish loyalty to the
Democratic party is even
greater in Congressional elec-
tions, Dr. Singer added.
Focusing on several races in
1986 the Senatorial contests
CMtiamct. froa Pag* 1
cart, soda cart, ~ breakfast
in New York, California,
Florida, Maryland, and Penn-
sylvania and the gubernatorial
contests in California and New
York Dr. Singer noted that
the traditional pattern of
Jewish liberalism was very
much in evidence, although
with some interesting
In all but one of the races -
that for Senator in Penn-
sylvania Jews voted by large
majorities for the Democratic
candidates. Alan Cranston in
California, Barbara Mikulski
in Maryand, and Mario Cuomo
in New York each received
more than 80 percent Jewish
In contests for the House of
Representatives, a New York
Times/CBS News poll in-
dicated that, nationwide, Jews
voted 70 percent Democratic
and 30 percent Republican in
comparison to the general
electorate, which voted 52 per-
cent Democratic and 48 per-
cent Republican.
Jewish voters showed a
strong preference for liberal
candidates in most instances.
In Maryland, liberal Barbara
Mikulski overwhelmed conser-
vative Linda Chavez (87 vs. 13
percent); in California, liberal
Alan Cranston trounced con-
servative Ed Zschau (85 vs. 15
percent); and in Florida,
moderate Bob Grahama scored
an easy victory over conser-
vative Paula Hawkins (76 vs.
24 percent). New York Gover-
nor Mario Cuomo received 84
percent Jewish support, an in-
crease of 21 percentage points
over his 1982 showing.
However, in two Senatorial
contests, there was a break
from the general pattern of
rock-solid Jewish liberal
voting. In Pennsylvania, Arlen
Specter, a moderate
Republican, received 55 per-
cent Jewish support. In New
York, conservative Republican
Alfonse D'Amato made an im-
pressive showing against
liberal Mark Green, increasing
his Jewish support to 34 per-
cent up from a minuscule 8
percent in 1980. What greatly
aided senators Specter and
D'Amato, the report con-
tinued, was their strong voting
records on matters of concern
to the Jewish community, in
particular the welfare of Israel
and Soviet Jewry.
Voting patterns aside, Jews
play a significant role in the
political, process in a variety of
ways, the report indicated.
There are large numbers of
Jews involved in politics as ex-
pert professionals, volunteers,
and, more recently, candidates
for office. Moreover, represen-
tatives of Jewish organizations
approach government officials
about a broad range of matters
of concern to the Jewish com-
munity. Last, but hardly least,
Jews contribute very substan-
tial sums to political cam-
paigns, either as individuals or
through PACs.
The ways Jews vote is
politically significant, the
report added, despite the fact
that Jews constitute less than
3 percent of the total
American population. The
ratio of Jews to voters is
almost twice as high as the
ratio of Jews to the population.
Also, Jews are concentrated in
large industrial states, such as
California and New York,
which are crucial to any vic-
tory in the electoral college.
Dr. Singer concludes that
Jewish voters are, and will
continue to be, a vital consti-
tuency for both the
Democratic and Republican

Department is the college divi-
sion of national United Jewish
Appeal. Working closely with
Hillel, it links college students
to their local Jewish communi-
ty and educates them for the
role they must play in ensuring
the survival of our people.
These college students repre-
sent the future and our task is
to develop them into tomor-
row's leaders.
To begin the process we host
a National Training Con-
ference, this year aboard the
Queen Mary in Long Beach.
California in November. The
conference began with Freeda
Keet, an Israeli radio show
host, as the keynote speaker.
Also included in the action
packed weekend were sessions
on worker recruitment, pro-
gramming, and publicity. It
concluded with an extraor-
dinary workshop on solicita-
tion training led by Barry
Judelman, the National UJA
director of development and
new gifts. Mr. Judelman
shared with us his experience
on the Kadima Mission to the
Soviet Union and Israel. When
the conference ended the
students were ready to begin
their work on their campus
The highlight of the campus
campaign activities is our ten
day student leadership mission
to Israel for the student
chairmen. In this short time
they explore the country and
see the impact of UJA's effort
on life in Israel.
One student, Robin Tobin,
upon returning from the mis-
sion wrote: "This was my first
time in Israel. I learned so
much not just about Israel but
about UJA. I now know how
important it is for Jews to stay
\ together and how crucial UJA
is. I am ready to solicit with
my whole heart. Thank you for
allowing me to experience
UJA in action. It was a
beautiful trip and you have my
sincere appreciation for a job
well done. '

Jacob and Rachel at the wall
I am Shoshana, the daughter
of Nahama, the daughter of
Rivka, the daughter of Leah
... and so on .. back. Thus,
Shoni Labowitz daughter of
many generations of Jewish
women, introduced herself to
those assembled at the home of
Esther Lerner for the Ruby
Lion's luncheon, beautifully
hosted by Evelyn Gross. It was
an introduction that made
everyone more aware of her
own particular lineage of
women of Israel. Do you know
where vou come from, and the
line of women in your own
family? Shoni, who will shortly
be ordained as a Rabbi, con-
ducted a dialogue that was
both inspiring and thought
provoking. What is the pur-
pose of life? What is our pur-
pose here? What will life be
like in the 21st century? Will
we leave a worthwhile legacy
to those who follow after us?
Jewish women have always
been associated with light. The
woman kindles the Sabbath
candles to welcome the Sab-
bath Queen. The warmth of
this illumination also
represents 'shalom bayit,' the
peace of the home. The sages
taught that where there is
light, there is peace. The glow
of the Shabbat lights in the
Jewish home on Friday even-
ing serves to remind each
member of the family that the
sacred day has arrived and
must be observed with
reverence, care and love. The
lighting of the candles has
become so intimately
associated with the holy day
and with Jewish women that
artists, seeking to typify the
Sabbath frequently depict a
woman kindling the lights.
Chanukah candle lighting
comes during the time of year
when the days are short and
the darkness is prevalent.
These lights traditionally shine
from inside the home onto the
outside world. Chanukah is
more than a holiday of gift giv-
ing, it is a special time when
the home is warmed with the
love of family. The words
'woman's voice,' in Hebrew
'Kol l8hah,' comes the root
word 'Aish' meaning 'fire.'
This fire sparks the light that
comes from the soul. We are
taught that when a child is
born, in order to breathe, it
reaches up and pulls down a
piece of G-d. That piece of G-d
goes into each person's body
and becomes the soul. Every
one of us contains a piece of
G-d. It is the breath of life, the
hidden light within us. It is,
therefore, important to ex-
plore our individual relation-
ship to our Creator.
Shoni related a story in
which G-d and Woman change
places. "In the story, Woman
can know how it feels to be G-d
and G-d can know how it feels
to be Woman. The Woman has
an insight that she never ex-
pected. She hears a still small
voice saying 'G-d is a Woman,
like yourself.' The G-d who had
existed for her only as an alien,
ceases to be a stranger to her.
In this moment she realizes
that the liberation of the one is
bound in the liberation of the
other." With that key we
understood how Judaism can
be more meaningful to each of
us. As women we need our
self-respect, our individuality,
and our independence ... not
too much difference from our
needs as Jews.
Although we have no control
over what the future may hold.
We do have control over how
we polish our own souls (that
is: how we choose to live). If
we let the light out from inside
of us and expose our own inner
yearnings, we can unleash a
powerful force that can benefit
our children and our friends.
We each have certain hopes
and needs. We must tap into
that inner light inside of
ourselves. We can tell our own
stories as individual women,
yet can we ever achieve
Shoni answers, "What may
be perfect for today, may not
be perfect for tomorrow. What
may be perfect for tomorrow
may be totally absurd for to-
day. It's like styles in clothing.
Our images of perfection are
constantly changing. The
Cabalists tell us that we live in
two different worlds ... the
upper world and the lower
world. If we enhance our souls,
satisfactorily, in the lower
world while here on earth,
they will be more perfected
when we reach the upper
world, than when we acquired
them at birth.
The first kiss, in the bible,
between a man and a woman,
occurred at the well ... bet-
ween Jacob and Rachel. The
story of this kiss has come
down to* us through all the
generations. It is significant
because a kiss is the very
sound of the soul. When you
join your mouth to another, it
is without words ... you can-
not speak. It is said that dur-
ing the messianic period, when
perfect harmony is reached on
earth, the shofar will be blown.
It will be heard from one end
of the planet to the other. It
might be thought that it would
be an enormous sound. To the
contrary! It will be the sound
of silence. Humanity must
realize a state of peace and
serenity in order to hear it.
Then we will have clarity and
love and light in the universe.

Soviet Refusenik Zoya Leybin
Message to American Jewry
The frantic scream of her
small daughter is Zoya
Leybin's last memory of life in
the Soviet Union. She fainted
in the Moscow airport, and had
to be carried onto the plane tc
Vienna, and freedom.
That ended more than a
year's nightmare of life as a
refusenik, during which she
and her daughters lived on 100
rubles a month, their allotment
from the United Jewish Ap-
peal's arm in the Soviet Union.
"It was very frustrating," she
said. "You don't know what
will happen, but you know that
some crisis will come."
"Once you are on a list, you
have lost your job, you have
nothing to sell for money, you
don't own a car, or your apart-
ment, vou have no money ..
Your friends cross the street
when they see you coming,
because they don't want to be
involved ... When you go to
the store, or use public
transportation, you insulate
yourself from stares of people
who look at you like a traitor."
Exit visas for herself and her
baby daughter Emma did not
end the anguish for Leybin,
who was forced to leave her
older daughter, Yvetto, with
her parents. A year later,
when they were granted per-
mission to leave, Yvette's visa
again was denied, and she was
sent to live with her father and
stepmother. Leybin is
tormented by memories of
those years of separation.
"Every time I ate a
strawberry, I cried a tear for
the strawberries my daughter
couldn't eat. I didn't know
what she was going through."
Yvette was told that her
mother had wanted to leave
her. "They told her, 'I didn't
need her, I didn't want her,
and I left," Leybin said. Con-
sequently, "She blamed me for
Yvette finally was allowed to
emigrate in 1983, in the wake
of the Korean Air Lines
disaster. Her adjustment has
been painful. "It takes time for
everything," Leybin says.
"For everything there is a
price, and we have paid the
Leybin and her daughter are
learning about each other
through the music they share.
Mom plays violin with the San
Francisco Symphony, in
recitals, and with the Chamber
Soloists of San Francisco.
Yvette, also a violinist, has
already played two concerts at
Carnegie Hall, and is working
toward her bachelor's degree.
She has career opportunities
that her mother only dreamed
of as a girl in th Soviet Union.
"To get a position in the or-
chestra, there was intense
competition against other
Jews," she said. "There was a
quota, so out of 100 openings,
maybe nine or ten would be
filled by Jews." But the idea of
leaving did not occur to her un-
tQ a small ad caught her eye. It
said that certain Jews whose
parents were born before the
war could apply to leave. "The
very idea that somebody could
get out and leave was so
"I was willing to pay any
price." Leybin said. "But I
have a scar, and my daughter
has a scar, even if nobody sees
it, that the greatest surgeon
can't remove. God help me, I
don't know how I survived it."
Leybin's message to
American Jews is simple.
"Realize how fortunate you
are. Someone in your past did
something very special for
you. They came to America,
allowing vou to be born into
freedom. It was a lucky chance
for you, but don't ever take it
for granted. Thank God for
that, and remember it when
you have a chance to help
somebody else."
Women in North Broward
will have an opportunity to
hear Leybin speak on Feb. 9,
when she will perform at the
Women's Division Kol Ishah
Bruncheon and Concert.

Condominiums Help Celebrate
Federation's 20th Anniversary
The Condominium com-
munities of Greater Fort

the backbone of the annual
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign. Last year, the
condominiums raised in excess
of $1 million.
Once again, the residents of
these communities will gather
in support of the 1987 Federa-
tion/UJA campaign and to
celebrate the 20th anniversary
of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.

THE NEW Seat Belt Law enacted by the Florida
Legislature has sparked controversy of late. And now that
the six month educational period is over and a violation of
the law will cost you $20 it seems to be a good time to
review the law and go over the provisions and exceptions.
Simply stated, the law required that all front seat
passengers regardless of age must wear their safety belts.
However, the legislature did provide some exceptions.
They are:
A school bus
A bus used for the transportation of persons for
A farm tractor
Trucks of a net weight of more than 5,000 pounds.
Pick-up trucks and vans are less than 5,000 pounds and are
therefore NOT exempt.
A motorcycle, moped or bicycle.
A newspaper carrier while delivering papers.
The legislation also provides for a medical exemption for
individuals. The law provides that if a licensed physician
certifies that a seat belt should not be worn by you, you
must get that in writing. The written certification on the
physicians letterhead and bearing bis signature will suffice
as proof. It need not be notarized, but you must have it with
you to show a deputy who stops you.
The law has language that states that enforcement of this
law by state or local law enforcement agencies shall be ac-
complished as a secondary action when a driver of a motor
vehicle has been detained for a suspected violation. The
deputy will issue a seat belt violation ticket if he has stop-
ped you for some other violation.

vival of Jews locally, in Israel
and worldwide.
Adhering to this goal, the
Federation created a Con-
dominium Cabinet. Under the
chairmanship of local leader
and Century Village resident
Samuel K. Miller, the Cabinet
is designed to answer the ques-
tions and share common pro-

which have arrived on the

Joseph Who Loved the Sab-
bath is a new telling of a tale
from the Babylonian Talmud,
"Joseph Mokir Shabbat,"
which is a lesson about the
rewards of hard work, hones-
ty, and piety.
A poor man, Joseph works
hard six days a week for a rich
employer. He ceases his labors
for the Sabbath and uses his
meager earnings to buy only
the best provisions to
celebrate the holy day of rest.
In the end, after a series of
strange and miraculous
events, Joseph is justly
rewarded for his love of the
Sabbath (and, of course, not
mentioned but implied, his love
of God).
Marilyn Hirsh's version of
the story is at once spare, vivid
and full of life. The whole suc-
ceeds especially because of
Deyis Grebu's illustrations,
which truly make Joseph and
his world visible and real. Col-
orful drawings in a style that
recalls primitive folk art and
Persian miniatures, they are
filled with all sorts of details
that evoke daily life in ancient
times. Observant children will

the temple and ruining the
food, flowers and other props
for the celebration. (The big
coincidence is that Alex's
Torah portion concerns Noah
and the Flood.) On top of that,
Alex's beloved grandfather
sprains his ankle climbing the
steep stairs in his house and
must stay in bed.
The house is the device on
which the story hangs. It is on-
ly six feet wide, though it is
three stories high and very
long. Alex's solution to the
problems is to take the bar
mitzvah to his grandfather, to
have it in the house.
The not-so-subtle message
that is that it's not the setting
or caterer that makes the occa-
sion but home, family and feel-
ing that are important. While
these are not sentiments to
sneer at, the heavy-handed
way they are conveyed makes
the lesson a bit had to swallow.
Another difficulty is the nar-
rative voice. Alex tells his own
story in a voice far too old,
sophisticated and knowing to
be that of a 13-year-old. It's
jarring and annoying. And
because of this problem with
narration, the metaphor of
house as ark and Alex as Noah
just doesn't work.
The Children We Remember
is subtitled "Photographs
from the Archives of Yad
Vashem, The Holocaust Mar-
tyrs' and Heroes' Remem-
brance Authority, Jerusalem,
Israel." This describes exactly
what is to be found in the
pages of this book. It in no way
prepares the reader for what
ne or she will encounter.
In only 41 photographs ac-
companied by a mere 200
words of text, archivist Chana
Byers Abells records the story
of the children who died in the
Holocaust and of those who
survived. She explains how life
was before the Nazis came,
how it changed, how children
died, and how some lived. She
is able to end on a note of hope,
which is necessary in a book
like this, geared for children,
for the story is so horrifying
and incomprehensible that
without a ray of light, fear and
despair would descend on any
child who beheld this.
While each individual photo
has its own power, the
cumulative effect is breathtak-
ing in the absolute sense of the
word you stop breathing for
a split second at the last page
and hear and feel only the rush
of grief, anger, disbelief, hor-
ror, incomprehension.
Parents should read this
book with their young children
and should be prepared for
questions whose factual
answers cannot adequately ad-
dress the various feelings that
will undoubtedly be
engendered. While this book is
intended for young children, it
is appropriate for all ages and
is an essential contribution to
the literature of the Holocaust.
It is also, as an aside, a
beautiful example of fine book-
making and design.

IDF Repulsed
TEL AVIV (JTA) Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin disclosed
Wednesday (Jan. 21) that an
Israel Defense Force unit
operating irregularly in south
Lebanon repulsed several attacks
in recent days by the Shiite ex-
tremist Hezbullah on units and
positions of the Israel-backed
South Lebanon Army (SLA).
Replying to questions in the
Knesset, Rabin said the attacks
were repelled with no casualties to
either the IDF or SLA. He
estimated that at least five at-
tackers were killed and 10
Rabin noted that the attacks
were launched some distance from
the Israel border which only con-
firmed the importance of the
south Lebanon security zone as a
buffer against attacks on Israel.

So if you must have open heart
surgery, it should be of great comfort
to know that, led by Dr. James Jude,
the surgeons at The North Ridge
Heart Institute perform more open
heart procedures than any other hos-

In fact, over 4,000 people have
come to us for open heart surgery in
the last 10 years. For the experience
of our physicians. And the excellence

Because along with our physi-

Specialists give individual attention
and support to you and your family
throughout your hospital stay.
And after surgery, a comprehen-

return to your normal life as quickly
as possible.
But we'd rather help you avoid
open heart surgery entirely. So we
offer one of the most advanced diag-
nostic testing and alternative treat-
ments available. Backed by the exper-

performed more than 10,000 cardiac

At AMI North Ridge Medical
Center, we believe you should accept
nothing less than expert cardiac care.
Because your health can only be as
sound as your heart.
