"What we must do now is to
increase our levels of giving

goal on the way to $10

tors, according to Sheldon S.
Polish, president.

peal's 50 plus beneficiaries and
major agencies, will once again
play a prominent role in the
organization, planning and alloca-
tions of the Jewish community's
major central organization.
In making the announcement,
Polish stated, "The expertise and
experience of the Margate
representatives is a valuable asset
in the comprehensive dealings of
William Katzberg

decision-making process. They
have devoted a great amount of
their lifetimes in working on
behalf of their fellowman, and br-
ing to our august body a sense of
responsible judgement tinged
with compassion."

Federation Story Highlighted at..
Young Business and Professional Meetings
On Sunday evening, Oct. 25, the
Steering Committee of the Young
Business and Professional Divi-
sion met to plan the group's up-
coming events.
This was a very historic
meeting, according to Division
chair Shana Safer, because the
committee agreed to have the
Federation story told at its up-
coming meetings.
"It was truly wonderful to see
the intense interest the group paid
in knowing more about the
Federation and its beneficiary
agencies," Safer said. "If more
people took such an interest in the
work of Federation, the com-
munity's needs would be better
Joel Telles, Federation's Ad-
ministrative director, gave an
overview of Federation and
discussed the history of Federa-

various agencies of Federation at-
tend future meetings.

Rabbi Paul Plotkin
His role as chairman of the UJA
Margate Division drives have
resulted in hundreds of thousands
of dollars for the campaign from a
grateful Jewish community. He
has again been appointed to the
chairmanship of the Federation
Communications Committee and
works closely in the formulating
and planning of the FLORIDIAN
and other public relations pro-
jects. This year, he was named
along with national leaders as a
member of the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency board. Katzberg also
writes a column for the Jewish
Journal and is an instructor in
various BCC courses.
Working diligently on behalf of
the Federation in the Margate
community, Israel Resnikoff, was
one of the founding members of
their Federation/UJA fund-
raising efforts, accounting for a
record-breaking total of gifts
Having been responsible for
organizing and implementing area
policies and programs since the in-
ception, both he and wife Berte
have been instrumental as well in
furthering the community's
education and religious practices
and are volunteer chaplains dur-
ing high holidays at County nurs-
ing homes.
Rabbi Plotkin, the President of
the North Broward County Board
of Rabbis, has been deeply im-
mersed in the work of the total
community and is involved in
everything Jewish. The former
assistant Rabbi at a Vancouver,
BC congregation, he came to
Temple Beth Am in 1983, after
serving as Rabbi of Temple Israel
in Miramar.
The Rabbi has lived and studied
extensively in Israel, and has seen
firsthand the importance of
Federation/UJA funds. His show,
The Temple Israel Hour, was part
of the National Jewish Network,
seen in 81 cities across the U.S.
and in 1985, he appeared on
CBS's 60 minutes.

The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not neceasahlv
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
From the Outside In
Terry Anderson will readily admit that she is a white, anglo-
saxon Protestant. A graduate of preppy Westminister, a private
school in northwest Atlanta, the 34-year-old mother of two fur-
ther categories herself as part of the upper middle class.
She is also the assistant director of Emory University's Fred R.
Crawford Witness to the Holocaust Project. The program was
established in 1978 by the late Dr. Crawford, a professor of
sociology at Emory. Its purpose is to record the experiences and
observations of non-Jews such as liberators of the death and con-
centration camps, relief agency workers, and medical personnel.
Anderson became involved in the project by chance. She was
working for the Center for Research and Social Change of which
Crawford was director. At his death she started working on the
Holocaust program. Dr. David Blumenthal is the current director.
Although she had heard of the Holocaust when she joined the
program, her knowledge was limited to an awareness that it was
a tragic event. Her high school history texts devoted only a
paragraph to Hitler. Though now significantly exposed to the hor-
rors of the Holocaust, she does not believe this has changed her
life. Clearly, however, her level of knowledge and sensitivity have
been raised.
When people ask her what she does, she has discovered that her
response elicits no further comments. She is convinced people do
not ask, because they simply do not know what the Holocaust is.
They simply have not been taught its meaning. When she once
mentioned to a neighbor where she worked, the neighbor asked if
she studied about fires. At the same time she acknowledges that
people do not care and would not care. "It's human nature not to
be concerned with what doesn't concern you," she adds. These at-
titudes have led her to avoid discussing the Holocaust with
friends. On another occasion when she brought it up, she recalls
that a friend "brushed it off." She was bothered by another
friend, previously married to a Jew, who accused Jews of being
Understanding anti-Semitism as a "blanket policy" has posed
some difficulty for her. She can accept one person hating another,
but not an entire people. She dismisses the notion of the Jews'
culpability for the death of Jesus as "totally ridiculous.
When questioned on the brutality exhibited by the Nazis, she
answers, 'They must have hated the Jews so much." Yet, she also
theorized that one has to have a lot of personal convictions to defy
Does she believe there is still anti-Semitism? Certain feelings
against Jews still exist. She noted the revisionists, who deny the
existence of the Holocaust. The only reason they are going to so
much trouble is their hatred of Jews.
She views Jews' feelings toward Israel as a "total reflection of
the Holocaust." Israel is more than just a country; it is also a
"haven." She can appreciate the attitude and response of the
Israeli government toward the PLO. The average person, she
asserts, does not understand or comprehend the Middle East
situation. She also felt that the general public does not unders-
tand why Jews have to be so paranoid, which she describes as
worrying about annihilation.
Can the Holocaust happen again? Yes, but not in the United
States and other democracies, she speculates. She cannot fathom
economic conditions reaching a level that would allow another
Hitler to come to power.
Anderson's opinions and views confirm that without a con-
certed effort of education, the Holocaust will never be relevant in
people's lives.

Group of the Atlanta, GA Federation.

Soviet Jewry Sub-Committee First Meeting
The Soviet Jewry sub-
committee of the Federation's
Community Relations Committee,
held the first meeting of the new
year to a record turnout of nearly
30 members.
Carol Frieser, Soviet Jewry
chairperson, stated that "We are
delighted that so many members
of the Jewish community are in-
terested in the plight of our Soviet
Jewish brethren and want to help
rescue these Jews from the Soviet
Union and bring them to Israel."
The sub-committee is made up
of representatives from area
Temples, Jewish service organiza-
tions and interested local
residents. The meeting had a
broad agenda in discussing future
activities of the CRC and its plans
to institute a variety of new pro-
grams in the local community.
Frieser urged the members to
promote the idea of Adopt-A-
Family among their Temples and
organizations to show the solidari-
ty between Jews in America and
those still in the Soviet Union. She
advised the members of the Soviet
Jewish Rally to be held on
January 28, 1988 at Temple Beth
Israel at which time Leonid
Feldman, a former refusenik, will
be the guest speaker.
The members of the committee
were given a pleasant surprise
when Boris and Ludmilla Poliak
were introduced. The Poliaks left
Russia in 1979 and after a number
of years in Buffalo, settled in
Plantation just ten months ago.
They related the problems facing
Jews in Russia and the severe
discrimination that takes place
when a Soviet Jew applies for an
exit visa. The committee was able
to ask a variety of questions con-
cerning life behind the Iron

"AT 12:01 A.M. THE RULES
Last New Year's Eve, many
people thought that it was the
death Knell for the tax saving op-
portunities they had always en-
joyed through their charitable giv-
ing. Those who look will find some
pleasant surprises.
1st Surprise: Charitable con-
tributions this year help tax pro-
blems more than they will in 1988.
Why? Because tax rates are
higher in 1987. "Giving more in
1987 may make sense for you,"
quote from Wall Street Journal
(Feb. 17, 1987).
"Some donors will realize
greater tax savings in 1987 from
contributions of appreciated
securities, land or tangible proper-
ty than they would have in 1986,"
quote from the publication TAX
NOTES (Oct. '86)
2nd Surprise: Supposedly fear-
some trap of the Alternative
Minimum Tax. It has been
reputed to make the appreciation
portion of many gifts of ap-
preciated property taxable, but in
many cases it will not apply.
That's great news. Generally the
Alternative Minimum Tax will not
be triggered unless the total of the
tax preferences are about 26 per-
cent or more of taxable income.
Under the new law it is ex-
pected that many taxpayers will
not be subjected to the Alter-
native Minimum Tax. Please,
always consult your own tax

Federation/UJA Super Sunday, Jan. 24
For the first time in recent
years, the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale
will be joining the rest of the
country by making Sunday,
Jan. 24, 1988 the date for
Federation's all-day phon-a-
thon on behalf of the 1988
Jewish Federation/United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
Taking on the huge respon-
sibility of co-chairmen for the
event will be Jim and Ava
Phillips of Plantation, an-
nounced Sheldon Polish,
Federation president.
"The Phillips' are a young,
energetic couple who will cer-
tainly add that extra
something that will make this
year's effort the most exciting
and prosperous one yet"
Polish stated.
Super Sunday will also look a
little different this year
because the site has been mov-
ed to the Soref Jewish Corn-
unity Center, Perlman Cam-
pus in Soref Hall, Federa-
tion/UJA for beneficiary
"We decided to move to the
JCC to attract as many dif-
ferent members of the com-
munity as possible," Jim
stated. "Moving to the JCC
will enable the younger
members of the community the
opportunity to help their
fellow Jews in need because
the JCC is more accessible for
many," Ava added.
According to the Phillips'
there will be many surprises
this year including pony rides
and babysitting services for
children, food vendors, out-
door booths, and activities
throughout the day in the
JCC's gymnasium.
"As usual, all volunteers
who will be manning the
phones will be provided with
refreshments thanking them
for their efforts," Jim stated.
Volunteers are welcome to
contact the Federation to
reserve a phone for Jan. 24.
Please look for sign-up sheets
in future issues of the Flori-
dian. Hundreds of volunteers
will be needed to make this day
a tremendous success.

JACS to Hold Retreat
At Hyatt Hotel
JACS of South Florida presents
a Jewish retreat weekend for
recovering alcoholics, chemically
dependent persons, and signifi-
cant others on January 8-10,1988,
at the Hyatt Palm Beach Hotel.
The goals of the retreat are to
bring addicts together with family
members to grow spiritually.
Highlights of the program in-
clude Sabbath services, closed
AA/ALANON meetings, informal
meetings with Rabbis, spiritual
sharing, and discussion groups.

Planning and Budget
Family Sub-Committee
The Federation's Planning and
Budget Committee, under the
chairmanship of John Streng, has
instituted an entirely new pro-
cedure in meeting the needs of our
community. A series of sub-
committees has been appointed
and the mandate of these sub-
committees is to meet on an on-
going basis with the major agen-
cies in the North Broward Jewish
community and determine the ef-
fectiveness of programs being of-
fered; the implementation of new
programs and services; deter-
mination of the unmet needs and
how to address those needs and a
final decision on the amount of
funding that the agencies should
receive in the allocation process.
The -sub-committees include
Elderly, Education, Children and
Youth, Family and a special sub-
committee for Coral Springs..
The meeting of the Family sub-
committee took place in the of-
fices of attorney Steven Fayne,
who is chairman of this commit-
tee. The committee met with pro-
fessional and lay representatives
of the Jewish Community Center,
Jewish Family Service and the
Central Agency for Jewish Educa-
tion. A detailed discussion took
place concerning the programs
now being presented for single-
parent families, which represents
an ever-growing segments of the
Jewish community. The total

Rabbi Nahum Simon of Temple
Beth Shalom is director of the
JACS program. He talked about
the goal of this very unusual
The first goal is to create com-
munity awareness of the nature of
the substance addiction problem
through education. Speakers from
the JACS program are available
for any organization that wants to
find out more on this spiritual sup-
port group..
It is estimated that 10-20 per-
cent of the general population are
addicted to alcohol or drugs, and
there is good reason to believe
that this percentage applies to
members of the Jewish communi-
ty as well. Through education and
awareness of this problem, it is
hoped that these numbers can be
brought down.
The second purpose of the pro-
gram is to help those in recovery
programs deal with their
spirituality" from a Jewish
perspective. JACS is a supplemen-
tal program to AA and NA, and
meetings are designed to enhance
one's recovery and to develop a
more loving relationship with a
higher power.
Rabbi Simon explained, "We
believe it is possible to grow
spiritually along Jewish lines as
opposed to other treatment
groups which are basically nonsec-
tarian in nature."
The third goal of the program is
"to be on the frontline when so-
meone needs help with their own
addiction or with someone in their
family," said Simon. We need to
help them get the help they so
desperately need."
JACS is a beneficiary agency of
the Jewish Federation receiving
funds from the annual United
Jewish Appeal eampaign.

1988 Federation/UJA
Reaches $1 Million Mark
Returning recently from the successful President's Mis-
sion to Israel, were a record number of North Broward
County leaders who participated along with the Communi-
ty Mission members in the historic October board meeting
in Jerusalem. According to Harold L. Oshry, 70 men and
women were a part of a wondrous time, meeting with key
Israeli government officials and leaders, visiting the hous-
ing development, schools and other UJA supported agen-
cies, and, most of all, seeing their brethren survive in an ex-
plosive Middle East situation. He paid special congratula-
tions to Missions chair Barbara K. Wiener and said,
"Because of her diligences and commitment, our Federa-
tion/UJA Missions team, responded with an outpouring of
gifts." Wiener indicated that she was proud to announce
that the President's Mission raised dose to $700,000 or a
30 percent card for card increase for the '88 drive.
Oshry emphasized that the dedication of these generous
men and women made possible the first million dollar total
for the campaign. He stated, "As.we complete the first
month of the drive, the heartfelt devotion of our Greater
Fort Lauderdale leadership has put us 28 percent ahead of
'87 and more than 20 percent of the pace we asked of our
campaign leadership to help us achieve our $7.6 million
goal. This is indeed an unprecedented beginning and can
only result in magnificent achievements to aid the tens of
thousands of the men and women here at home, in Israel,
and around the world." Mission pictures and features will

The volunteers continue to
work With Energy, Compassion
and Reponsible Effort to help feed
the hungry in Broward County.
As has been documented, the
number of needy families in the
community grows. And we know
that contributing factors are the
ever increasing number of single-
parent families; the growing
number of families who come to
settle here from out of state, plus
the larger number of older
residents who try to make it alone
on low fixed incomes.
WECARE feeds the hungry
with the help of its open to
everyone food supply closet.
WECARE again sends out a plea!
Help keep its shelves full! Many
individuals in Broward County are
actually hungry. The WECARE
food closet can help feed them by
presenting them with canned
foods such as juices, soups, fish
products, vegetable and fruits.
WECARE can also help a little
with household chores. Therefore,
in addition to donations of food,
laundiy and other soap products
would be most welcome to have on
hand to distribute.
Implementing the WECARE
food distribution project is its new

ble by the $5,000 grant received

MAZON, as has been published
in this space just a few months
ago, is the brain-child of Leonard
editor. Based in California, the
organization's purpose is to feed
the hungry all over the country
on a nonsectarian basis. In its
little more than two years of ex-
istence, MAZON has achieved
remarkable growth. It raises the
funds solely through party hosts
who plan bar mitzvahs, weddings,
birthdays, anniversaries (or other)
celebrations. MAZON raises its
funds by requesting these hosts to
donate 3 percent of the cost of
their affair. Lists are developed
through the cooperation of
Synagogues and Jewish

Though it may be a crust
To thank Him for our daily bread

workshops for principals and
