1948 UJA Campaign brochure
We are the American genera-
tion that helped turn history's
page. Forty years ago, Henry
Morgenthaus, Jr., general chair-
man of the UJA called on the
American Jewish community for
deeds of sacrifice, deeds of vision,
deeds of leadership. The lives and
hopes of 700,000 Jews in Eretz
Yisrael and hundreds of
thousands of homeless Jews in
Europe were at stake. "Do we
have the guts to see this dream
through to reality?" We did. And
now the realization of that dream
is more complex and challenging
than we ever expected.
In 1948, and for the next several
years, hundreds of thousands of
new immigrants crowded into
hastily erected tent cities and
transit camps. The nation's
population doubled between 1948
and 1952. Hundreds of set-
tlements were established, not on-
ly to house immigrants and build
the country, but to secure its
borders. Even after an armistice
brought the War of Independence
to a close in 1949, the threat of at-
tack was constant. Food was
scarce; housing, schools, health
and welfare facilities were inade-
quate. There weren't enough jobs.
Having absorbed wave-after-
wave of immigrants 1.8 million
people from 102 different lands

the shoreline of Israel. The Jew on
the dock at Haifa hoped for
shelter. The Jew in the ma'barah,
or tent city, hoped for a home, a
business and school for the
children. Forty years later, we
join the people in Israel and Jews
around the world in seeking new
directions and new hope.
In future Floridians, we will
continue to expand on new direc-
tions, new hope for our Jewish
brethren and the case for giving in
1988. For, in the long run, we the
men, women and children of
North Broward County can deter-
mine the future of world Jewry.
Today, thousands of our brethren live in Israel,
the country that stands as the Jewish Home for
men, women and children from 102 different
Israel is one of the world's most
vital and creative societies. When
thousands of Ethiopian Jews ar-
rived three years ago, they
entered a social structure which
could facilitate their absorption.
The same will be true of the next
wave of Soviet Jews, the re-
mainder of Ethiopia's Jews and
any others who seek refuse in the
Jewish homeland. That's what
Israel is all about.
Israel has demonstrated that it
can defend itself. It not only feeds
its people, but exports food and
shares its agro-technology with
other nations. And after a long
struggle, it has curbed its triple-
digit inflation to an estimated 25
or 30 percent for the coming year
high by any standard, but
manageable for Israel in contrast
to the recent past.
We have helped Israel establish
this foundation. Now it's time to
turn a new page:
To ensure opportunities for
education, social services and
economic progress in Kiryat
Shmona as well as Tel Aviv, the
Arava as well as in Jerusalem;
To narrow the social and
economic gap between well-

taged residents of poor urban and

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not neceeaarilv
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Peace, which in the end must mean recognition of Israeli
security and Palestinian reality, is possible.
Israelis must create a unified government capable of
negotiating. Arabs, including Palestinians, must recognize
that their attempts to kill the Israeli state in 1948, and
almost ever since, led to what is happening today. To pre-
tend Israel brought this on herself is a hypocrisy and
falsehood that blocks the future.
The only way to move on is to face the reality and lessons
of the past. Otherwise, Arab and Jew are trapped in a cycle
and the young men of Israel and Gaza will face each other
in hatred year upon year, perhaps for their lifetimes.
The Making of Gaza
The Op-Ed artidt Mow, reprinted from the New York Times of
December tt, 19i7, provide* an excellent historical perspective to
the tragic event* now taking place in the Middle East.
A year ago I traveled through Gaza. I thought then and
believe still with all the emotion Israel arouses that all who
love her should journey in Gaza.
There are places on earth where aridity and bleakness
are more stark, where oppression is far worse, where
anger is as hot in the eyes of the young men who stand by
the roadside and stare. But for those who care for Israel,
that is evasion.
They know that this should not be, that Israeli soldiers
should not patrol year after year in alleys of hatred. That
was not what Israel was meant to be or do or stand for.
Yes, there is a double standard for Israel. She is judged
by higher standards than, say, those Arab neighbors who
preach death and hate and slaughter in the name of God.
The double standard is not only a matter of pride and duty
to Israel's biblical roots but of strength in the world today.
It is the belief that Israel lives by principles of decencv
that won her essential support in the United States, decade
after troubled decade.
And now, newspapers and television screens are aflame
with the bitterness of the young men of Gaza, that strip of
territory Israel does not want but cannot let go for fear it
would become a PLO state. Twenty years of Israeli occupa-
tion have only heightened hatred in Gaza, as would another
This is all true. But if there is to be any honest effort
toward an end to the misery of Gaza and the tragedy of
Israel as occupier, other truths must be faced. So far
almost nothing has been said about them. The haters of
Israel simply use Gaza as a club against her. Her sup-
porters abroad do little but shake their beads in reprimand
or embarrassment.
The one basic truth that must be faced is that the tragedy
of Gaza was created by the refusal of the Arab nations to
recognize the right of Israel to exist and by their attempt to
destroy the Israeli state, beginning at birth.
In 1947, the United Nations with the backing of every
major power, voted to partition the British mandate of
Palestine into Israeli and Palestinian states. If the Arabs
had accepted that, there would today be a separate Palesti-
nian state 40 years old; Gaza and its people would be part of
But the Arab states fell upon Israel and in utter fury
tried to loll the old dream and new reality of the Jewish
state. They seized and divided what was to have been the
Palestinian state.
Egypt took the Gaza strip. Jordan, now admired in the
West, seized the West Bank. It also captured most of
Jerusalem, defiled Jewish holy piacs, banned Jews and
destroyed hopes of internationalization of the Holy City.
Israel lived within mortar range of the Egyptians, the
Jordanians and the Syrians, who had snatched heights
overlooking Israel, the mortars ware fired. For 20 years,
the territory tint was to have been a Palestinian state
under the UN plan was used by the PLO for attacks against
Israel, with the approval and support of the Arab
Then, in 1967 Israel stunned the Arabs and the rest of
the world by trouncingArab armies. She threw the Jorda-
nians out of the West Bank and Jerusalem, the Egyptians
out of Gaza and the Syrians out of the Golan Heights.
Israel found hersstf in control of territory that had been
illegally occupied by the Arab states. Israelis were deter-
mined to push back their borders so that they would never
again live looking down Arab gun barrels. Thus began the
era of Israeli occupation, creating a safer state in the short
run but also stoking the hatred and danger now being
acted out on the dry soil of Gaza, and spreading.
What difference does it make, so many years later? For
one thing it cleanses the mind and perhaps the soul to com-
bine sorrow and criticism of Israel with recognition of
historic reality.
History is a loaf, not slices of bread. Unless yesterday is
understood, the anguish of today is distorted and the peace
possible some tomorrow put off indefintety, perhaps
Soviet RefuseniksRevisited
Assistant Regional Director
B'nai B'rith Youth
In reality it has been slightly
more than two years since we met
them. In some ways it seems like
only yesterday; yet in others it has
been like an eternity. For those
years have been good for some,
tragic for others.
My three friends and I went to
the USSR in August of 1985. We
went, not as tourists, but as
emissaries, teachers, messengers
of hope. We went to learn
firsthand about the burdens of
Soviet anti-Semitism which have
been borne by our Soviet Jewish
brothers and sisters and to hear
witness to their courage.
During our 10 day visit we met
with many Jewish families in Len-
ingrad and Moscow. All were
"Refuseniks" Jews who had ap-
plied to emigrate from the USSR,
often repeatedly, but had been
refused permission to do so by
Soviet authorities. Among them
were Jews of all types; men and
women, young and old, Jews who
strived to observe Jewish law,
others who sought to learn Jewish
history and still others who simply
felt strong ties to the Jewish peo-
ple. Some wished to go to Israel,
others to the U.S. -but all were
bound together by a common
desire to leave this land which has
traditionally been so unkind to
Over the past two years my
three friends and I have sent
many letters to U.S. and Soviet
officials and to the Refuseniks
themselves, written articles and
given speeches, organized and
participated in rallies all in an
effort to make people more aware
of the hardship faced by Soviet
Jews and to convince Soviet
authorities to release them.
Happily, we have had our suc-
cesses. Since our visit, three of the

LONDON (JTA) A British diplomat, critical of
Israel s handling of recent disorders in the administered
territories, was to fly to Israel to urge its leaders to agree
to an international conference for Middle East peace.
I am looking forward to seeing
these former Refuseniks with
tremendous anticipation, I still
recall our meetings in the USSR
with great affection. Despite our
problems with each other's
language, we had little difficulty
communicating. We smiled and
we laughed, we sang and we cried.
How well I remember the tears of
a grandmother, overjoyed at hear-

songs of Israel with us. And I
remember my own tears when
our trip came to an end.
I confess I was afraid that I
might never see them again.
These people, these strangers that
we were meeting for the first
time, separated from us by
thousands of miles and centuries
of cultural differences, were
almost instantly transformed into
lifelong friends as soon as we
crossed the threshold of their
apartments. They took us into
their homes, into their hearts and
into their lives. And we brought
them into ours.
Three of the families we met
with are now free. Another is due
to be released shortly. This gives
me great joy. But what of the

Federation December Board Update
"December was a month of ex-
citing and happening events, and
thanks to the diligent effort and
heartfelt generosity of the 55 plus
Jewish Federation board
members, an outstanding success
in the 1988 drive for $7.6 million
to aid our brethren in need."
Plantation's Sheldon S. Polish,
Federation president, extended a
special 'pat-on-the-back' to ex-
ecutive vice president and general
campaign chairman Harold L.
Oshry and his team '88 cabinet for
the record $3 plus million raised to
date, and for the support and
dedication of the major areas and
divisions to achieve the called for
15 percent increase in giving.
The agenda item, the first on
the board's primary meetings held
at the West Oakland Park offices,
included the remarks of Oshry
which praised the 'day-to-day'
fund-raising techniques and
organization of the Major Gifts
Division chaired by Joel Reinstein,
culminating at the Dinner with
$1.7 million and the Palm-Aire
Pacesetters Luncheon which put
the Division over the $300,000

Although Hebrew U. is

Honeymoon Over For East
Berlin And New Rabbi
BONN (JTA) A con-
troversy has surfaced within
East Berlin's tiny Jewish com-
munity over how to approach
the several dozen young Jews
who lately have shown interest
n Judaism and in seeking their
Jewish roots.
Peter Kirchner, chairman of
the community, believes they
must be confronted with the
choice of "joining in or staying
out" of the official community.
But the new rabbi of East
Berlin, Isaac Neumann, its
first rabbin in 22 years, insists
that no pressure be brought to
bear on young people attracted
to Judaism.
The quarrel involves a
Jewish community that is
minuscule. There were 400 of-
ficially registered Jews in all of
East Germany in 1985, about
half of whom lived in East
Berlin. In 1984, the communi-
ty numbered 800, half in East
Neumann, writing in the
West Berlin leftist daily
Tage8zeitung, said his primary
concern was that the young
men and women grasp
Judaism and practice
whatever they understand.
"Whether one is a member of
the community or not, this is
certainly not decisive," he
said. He added that it was up
to the rabbi to decide.
Neumann, 65, was born in
Lodz, Poland and after years
in Nazi concentration and
labor camps, immigrated to
the United States in 1950. He
was ordained there in 1958
and served as a rabbi in Cham-
paign, 111.
He assumed his rabbinicai
post in East Berlin last
September after prolonged
negotiations between
American Jewish organiza-
tions and the East German
authorities. He is presently
vacationing in the United
v vc.

Federation's 20thIsrael's 40th Anniversary Campaign Celebration
Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel At March 10th UJA Event
"A brilliant writer and teacher,
a Jew who is universal, a cons-
cience, an interpreter of legends, a
lecturer who recreates the past,
reminding us of old conflicts ..."
This is Elie Wiesel, and we all
have the opportunity to meet and
hear this distinguished and emi-
nent world Jewish leader, when
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale hold their
primary 20th Anniversary and
Israel's 40th Birthday Celebra-
tion, Thursday, March 10, at the
Soref Jewish Community Center,
Perlman Campus in Plantation.
"The Nobel Peace Prize
Laureate is coming; to South
Florida and we have him," said
East Fort Lauderdale's Barbara
K. Wiener, Federation board
member and event chair, who told
the FLORIDIAN that a commit-
tee of Division and area leaders
are working diligently to plan this
magnificent program, which will
be the campaign closing gala for
the '88 Federation/UJA drive.
She indicated the event, of
special significance to the North
Broward County Jewish com-
munity, is open to those in-
dividuals who make a minimum
gift of $1,000 to the campaign,
and will feature among other
things, a specially prepared slide-
video show, depicting the work of
the "Family of Federation," agen-
cies and beneficiaries, a presenta-
tion to the past presidents and a
Viennese Dessert Table.
In discussing the prominent
speaker, Anniversary chairman
and Federation's first president
Ludwik Brodzki, said, "We are in-
deed honored to have Elie Wiesel
address our community. To the
Jewish people, he is much more
than just a writer of fine and mov-
ing literature he is a symbol, a
banner and a beacon, perhaps the
survivor of the Holocaust."
Wiesel, the chairman of the
United States Holocaust
Memorial Council, has provided a
memorable record of service, both
public and professional.
A member of the Boston
University Humanities Depart-
ment, the author has been a
visiting professor at Yale Univer-
sity, Florida International Univer-
sity and City University of New

jamin Netanyahu, Israel's am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, charged the Palestine
Liberation Organization with
responsibility for the death of
Arab children shot by Israel
Defense Force soldiers during
the recent rioting in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
"Fresh bodies even if they
are of Arab children are ex-
actly what the PLO wants in
order to prevent a peace set-
tlement,' Netanyahu told
reporters after delivering a
lecture at Bar Ban University.
Asked if the PLO deliberate-
ly planned to have children
shot, Netanyahu said there
may have been some spon-
taneous elements in the recent
disturbances, but they would
not have lasted so long or been
so violent if there were no
organization behind them.
"Masked PLO operatives
went into schools and forced
boys and girls out into the
streets," the diplomat charg-
ed. "Once you create such a
situation, the rest can be
Netanyahu defended plans
to deport Palestinian activists,
despite protests in Israel and
abroad and it would be a viola-
tion of international law. He
said the critics "forget that the
Geneva Convention (of 1949)
was formulated against the
background of World War II,
when mass populations were
deported and displaced.
"Here, we are talking about
deporting a few individuals,"
Netanyahu said.
Surgeons Implant
Silicon Vertebra
tors at the Hadassah-Hebrew
University hospital at Ein
Kerem have replaced a middle-
aged woman's cancerous
vertebra with a hand-sculpted
silicon facsimile.
The surgeons said they
believed this was the first time
this procedure has been per-
formed anywhere in the world.
The partially paralyzed
woman had been bedridden
before the operation because
the vertebra, in the lower part
of her spine, was so damaged
by cancer that her backbone
was unable to hold her body
She now can sit up in a
wheelchair arid has been
discharged from the hospital.

the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel, is rich in potassium,

u... set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
(Exodus 33:3)
Golda Meir David Ben
Gurion Eleanor Roosevelt.. .
One could count the number of
people in whose presence true
greatness is felt. Elie Wiesel is
one of those special few.
The first book about his ex-
periences in Auschwitz was
published in France in 1958. Set
down in the simplest of prose, it
was an electrifying volume called
"Night." In it he examines his
feelings as a child living through
the bestiality and cruelty of the
concentration camps. It has been
thirty years since then, and he has
written over twenty books and
lectured widely on human rights.
The 1986 Nobel Prize for Peace
was awarded to this man, who has
been called the "conscience of the
Listening to Elie Wiesel speak
is even more remarkable than
reading his books. He addresses
an audience, as he writes, in a
whispered shout. The words are
soft.. but their meaning is enor-
mous. Twenty years ago he wrote
"Jews Of Silence." This brought
the plight of the Jews of the
Soviet Union to the world. Elie
Wiesel was convinced, even then,
that unless the situation in the
USSR was recognized and the
Jews permitted free emigration
they could suffer the same fate as
those in the Nazi era.
At the Rally for Soviet Jewry in
Washington, D.C. on Dec. 6, just
before the recent summit
meeting, Mr. Wiesel proclaimed,
"If Mr. Gorbachev intends to
sacrifice human rights on the
political alter of nuclear disarma-
ment, it is peace itself that will be
the victim. Peace and human
rights are inseparable. One cannot
exist without the other, for one is
the justification for the other." He
called on Mikhail Gorbachev to,
".. open the doors wider and
keep them open. Remove the ab-
surd, silly security measures that
prevent Jews from leaving en-
vironments where they have been
made to feel isolated and estrang-
ed. If I bad the time I would spend
the next three years reading all
the names ... all must be known,
for all need us."
"As for those Jews who wish to
stay," continued the Nobel
Laureate, "make it possible for
them to study Hebrew, to study
Jewish history, to study Jewish
literature. See to it that, like other
ethnic minorities, they may take
pride in their culture and
On May 7, 1987 Elie Wiesel ad-
dressed a joint session of the
Florida legislature in Tallahassee.
He spoke of a commitment to the
future in terms of the past saying,
".. we have chosen to join
memories, yours and mine. We
think of the past with a strange
look toward the future. We are all
committed to memory. A nation, a
society ... a civilization can be
defined not only by inspiration for
a better future .. but can be
defined by the commitment not to
allow the past to be erased. It is
the past that is actually the basis
of civilization. It is the past that is
either a treasure or a tomb. It is
when we close our eyes that we
remember, and when we
remember, our memory may then
acknowledge and justify our hope
for one another. It is possible to
build with memories, on
In 1981 Elie Wiesel wrote in his
book "The Testament," "A.Jew
may be alone but never solitary,
for he remains integrated within a
timeless community, however in-
visible or without geographical or
political reality. The Jew does not
define himself within
geographical categories; he ex-
presses and identifies himself in
historic terms. Jews help one

In the Wake of the Summit
Mikhail Gorbachev's Summit visit to the United States has cap-

sincere desire to limit nuclear armaments have raised our hopes
for world peace, and have also begun to soften, ever so subtly, our
suspicious about Soviet intentions.
Yet before we succomb to euphoria over the state of Soviet-
American relations, let us take note that on one issue freedom
of Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union Mr. Gorbachev did
not budge an inch. Indeed, when reporters questioned him about
this, he reacted with anger and defiance.
A day before the Summit began, nearly 250,000 Americans
mobilized in Washington to demand that the Soviet Union open
its doors to those Jews who wish to leave. If Soviet authorities
truly wish to reduce tensions between the superpowers, they
should heed the message of that mobilization: Peace and human

American High School Students Live and Learn in Israel
Thanks to Federation/UJA Dollars...
The Alexander Muss High
School in Israel program is an
eight-week course of study that
gives American high school
students the opportunity to learn
the history of western civilization
in one of the most magnificent
classrooms in all the world the
land of Israel.
The High School in Israel pro-
gram is a beneficiary agency of
the Jewish Federation receiving
funds from the annual United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
The Alexander Muss High
School in Israel is the only short-
erm program in Israel .hat works
vith public and private schools in
he U.S. There are five academic
: essions each year four during
the school year and one curing the
summer, providing intensive lear-
n'ng experiences for llth and
Ltth graders. The program works
in cooperation with the Ministry
of Education and the Department
of Education of Tel-Aviv Universi-
ty. All instruction is corducted in
the English language.
There are two campuses on
vhich the program is conducted.
One is the Mosenson Educational
C enter at Hod Ha'Sharon and the
other is Hadassim rear Netanya.
Students spend hair their time on
campus learning cbout a par-
ticular period in hii tory, and the
other half is spent visiting the
sites that often pertain to the
period that they have just studies.
Two students that went on the
High School in Israel program in
February of 1986 are Heidi
Weinstock and Toby Cohen of
Coral Springs.
Heidi Weinstock said of the pro-
gram, "It's not easy to describe it,
you have to go and experience it!"
Toby Cohen related, "Going to
Israel gave me a lot of respect for
what our people have fought for in
the past, and how I can enjoy this
land now because of it."
The High School in Israel cam-
puses are complete facilities con-
sisting of administrative and
classroom areas, a library,
laboratories, and dormitories with
shower/bath facilities, a laundry
room, study, and dining areas.
Toby Cohen noted that there
were three dorms on our campus
at Hod Ha'Sharon with 36
students per dorm.
Heidi Weinstock added, "It's
like living on a college campus
with adult counselors who become
like big brothers and sisters to you
and try to help with many of your
The two main objectives of the
High School in Israel program are
to encourage an intensive level of
study and learning, which is sus-
tained throughout the two mon-
ths, and to build student self-
esteem which occurs from earning
rewarding grades and from
discovering new learning ex-
periences first-hand from the
many field trips that are taken
throughout Israel.
Heidi Weinstock related, "The
impact it had on me when I came
home was that it matured me a
lot, and in many ways you become
more independent.'
Susan Cohen, Toby's mother,
added, "Every high school stu-
dent, regardless of religion,
should have the opportunity to go
on this program. If students in the
U.S. were taught with the type of
commitment that they are taught
with in Israel, we wouldn't have a
dropout problem."
The sessions in Israel corres-
pond to a quarter-marking period
of the school year. The qualifica- a student needs to be enroll-
ed in the program are that he/she
must have finished the 10th grade
and maintained at least a "C"
average. After initial interest in

for the student.
Marion Merzer, director of ad-
missions of North Broward Coun-
ty for the High School in Israel
program, says, "This program is
an exciting learning experience
where students will come back
with a great sense of accomplish-
ment. It is a pre-college ex-
perience in many ways. Students
will mature and grow academical-
ly, emotionally, and spiritually."

2322 in Hollywood, Florida must
have been wondering what was
going on when the chapter held its
Regressive Dinner in November.
Entitled "Something Fishy is Go-
ing On!," the 4 course meal,
beginning with dessert, featured a
fish theme at each of the host
houses. It began with brownies,
ice cream and "gummie fish" at
the home of Cindy Goodman, the
chapter Advisor. Then it was tuna
fish salad and bagels at the house
of the chapter President, Jill
Robinson, followed by salad and
soup with goldfish crackers at
the home of Elana Weisberg. The
last (first?) course was hors
d'oeuvres and fish-shaped
crackers and chocolate chips at
the home of Heather and Wendy
And as if this weren't filling
enough, the chapter also spon-
sored a Chocolate-Making Party a
few weeks later. Nine girls spent a
rather messy evening at the home
of Heather and Wendy Smith
making chocolate lollipops and
candies in all shapes and sizes.
The program was planned by
Heather Smith.
Nesichot is a chapter of the
B'nai B'rith Youth Organization.
Centered in Hollywood, the
chapter is now in its 3rd year of
existence. The chapter President

Political turmoil broke out in
this imperial city late last
month when Michael Graff
was forced to resign as general
secretary of the Austrian Peo-
ple's Party.
Graff, who played a key role
in the election of Kurt
Waldheim as president of
Austria, created a storm as a
result of an interview he gave
to a French newsweekly. In
that interview, the feisty,
argumentative Graff said
there was no problem with
Waldheim's Nazi past "so long
as it's not proved that he
strangled six Jews with his
own hands."

new donors were recognized at
the meeting. They were Mr. Mor-
ris Goldstein, who started a new
philanthropic fund, and Mr. and
Mrs. Louis Bernstein, who in-
itiated a charitable remainder

plaque to Bernard Gross, executor
of the late Dr. Louis Fox $1
million Foundation bequest.
There were also two special
awards that were presented on
this occasion. Carl Schuster was
given the "Council of Jewish
Federations Endowment Achieve-

nard Gross was honored for his
outstanding support of the Jewish

speaker at the meeting. Lewison
gave a very informative talk on
"What is a financial plan and what

for Women March 17
Jacob Brodzki, chairman of the
Jewish Federation's Foundation
of Jewish Philanthropies, an-
nounced that there will be a tax
seminar exclusively for women
that will take place on March 17.
This second annual seminar is
being chaired by Deborah Hahn,
Jewish Federation Women's Divi-
sion vice president and a Founda-
tion Board trustee.
The tax seminar is being coor-
dinated by estate planning at-
torney Shirley D. Weiaman of

sionals, including Shirley
Weisman, will give presentations
on several topics, including
"Investing In The 1990s," "Taxa-
tion And My Estate," and "What
Should I Know About My Hus-
band's Financial Affairs."
Brodzki and Hahn stated that
this will be a very informative pro-
gram, and one that is dedicated to
helping women of this community
gain up-to-date insight into their
financial affairs.
The place and time of this pro-
gram will be announced soon. For
more information about this
seminar, contact Kenneth Kent,
Foundation director at 748-8400.
political leaders led by
Chancellor Franz Vranitzky in-
stantly condemned Graffs
outrageous statements and
demanded his resignation.
During my meetings here
with government and Jewish
leaders, I learned there was a
dramatic outpouring of reac-
tions from people in many
walks of Austrian life who said
they were appalled by Graffs
horrible anti-Jewish
statements. There was also a
widespread welcoming of the
simultaneous resignation of
the deputy mayor of Linz, Karl
Hoedl, who earlier made other
vicious anti-Semitic
As upsetting as these
episodes are, it is significant
that increasing numbers of
Austrians, especially younger
people, are speaking out in re-
jection of these traditional
anti-Jewish cliches.

Misha Taratuta, son of promi-
nent Leningrad refuseniks Aba
and Ida Taratuta, met with Sen.
Chiles, (D., Fla,), recently to
discuss the hardships he faced
during his 14-year struggle to
emigrate from the Soviet Union.
This is the first time Misha per-
sonally met Sen. Chiles, who
adopted the Taratuta family six
months ago. In addition to the
litany of difficulties that
refuseniks face, the Taratutas
were subjects of heightened
discrimination and ostracization
after TV and newspaper pieces
showed photos of Aba Taratuta,
revealed his name and labelled
him a "traitor" and "Zionist
During the meeting, Sen. Chiles
joined Misha in talking with his
parents in a pre-arranged con-
ference call from Leningrad.
"We will not give up our fight to
win freedom for you and all other
refuseniks seeking the right to
emigrate," Sen. Chiles told Aba
Misha received his exit visa in
June 1987 and emigrated to Israel
on Aug. 2.
On Sept. 9 Soviet emigration of-
ficials informed Aba and Ida
Taratuta that they were revoking
the "knowledge of secrets" claim
that the Soviets have used to deny
exit visas to the couple. Soviet
Jewry organizations interpreted
the move as a sign that emigration
permission is forthcoming but the
Taratutas still have not yet been
granted visas.
Chiles has sent a series of let-
ters and telegrams to Soviet of-
ficials on behalf of the Taratutas.
Last April he rallied the other 20
members of the Florida Congres-
sional delegation to join him in
sending a Passover appeal to
Secretary Gorbachev requesting
the release of the Taratutas and
Misha Taratuta, son of prominent Leningrad refuseniks Aba and
Ida Taratuta, with Sen. Lawton Chiles.
all others seeking their legal right
to emigrate. He also has written
to the Taratutas directly and
telephoned them during a Soviet
Jewry rally in South Florida last
On Oct. 9 he sent telegram to
Secretary Gorbachev and Am-
bassador Dubinin urging the
release of the Taratutas now that
they have been cleared of the
"secrecy" claim.
The Taratuta's plight was
originally brought to Sen. Chiles'
attention by the family's relatives
living in South Florida and by ac-
tivists with the South Florida
Conference on Soviet Jewry and
the South East Region of the
United Synagogue of America.
The Community Relations Com-
mittee of the Federation has been
actively promoting the concept of
Adopt-A-Family in the Soviet
Union. This program can be an im-
portant link with Soviet Jews who
have been refused visas to leave
the Soviet Union, with Americans
who show that they are concerned
with the plight of those in Russia.
Organizations, Temples, Con-
dominiums and individual local
families can become part of this
vital person-to-person program.
Carol Frieser, Soviet Jewry
committee chairman, stated that
"it is indeed a mitzvah to par-
ticipate in this Jewish lifeline to
our brethren in the Soviet Union.
You will receive a wonderfully
warm feeling just knowning that
you are letting a Russian family
know that you care and are con-
cerned with their efforts to

Amherst, Mass. may well be the home of the rebirth of Yiddish
in the U.S. Just a few short years ago Aaron Lansky decided it
was time to revive Yiddish. He founded the National Yiddish
Book Center, which in its brief history has recorded a number of
remarkable achievements. The Center, which Lansky now serves
as executive director, has collected over 600,000 volumes of Yid-
dish works with 1,000 arriving weekly through the efforts of
volunteer collectors, "zamlers," around the country. Its
magazine, The Book Peddler, boasts that its latest issue is its big-
gest yet.
Rabbi Arye Gotlieb of Paramus, New Jersey, called one day in
July, 1986, and claimed that there was a two-car garage in the
New York Hasidic neighborhood of Boro Park, filled with Yiddish
and Hebrew sheet music. Three staff members from the Center
responded to his call and arrived on a hot July day at the garage.
Having found only very few intact folios of sheet music in the
past, they were amazed to discover 85,000 folios of Jewish music.
Friday, January 15,1988/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Pag316
Among the find was "Rumania, Rumania," a classic theatre song
in which Aaron Lebedoff longs for "a mame ligele ... a
pastramele, un a glezele vayn!" Other songs in the cache were "A
yidish meydl darf a yidishn boy (A Jewish Girl Needs a Jewish
Boy), "A Mother is the best Friend," "Foolish Fathers" and
"Mamenyu, Buy Me That!"
The magazine also featured a story on Jacob Schaefer, a 77 year
old resident of Fairfax, a Jewish neighborhood in Los Angeles.
With the help of the Workmen's Circle of Southern California, he
has saved 40,000 Yiddish volumes. Stated Schaefer, "Every time
I save a book, I am doing a holy thing. For the first time in my life,
I am truly happy."
In its News Briefs section it reported that it has a volume of
Yoga in Yiddish. It also announced a world-wide contest for new
Yiddish folk songs by the Charlote, N.C. Yiddish Institute. It's
too late to enter now, but it's nice to know that Charlotte has such
a program. A new English-Yiddish, Yiddish-English dictionary
with 12,000 entries is about to hit the market. The softbound
volume of 300 pages can be purchased through the Center.
Among its varied activities the Center sponsors a Summer Pro-
gram for Yiddish Culture. Initiated four years ago, it received
2,000 applications for the 45 places in its first year. Participants
are immersed in all aspects of Yiddish culture so that they can
"initiate or strengthen Yiddish educational programs in their own
A number of academic institutions have contacted the Center
about establishing Yiddish collections. Included in the list are the
University of Maryland, the University of Hamburg (Germany),
the Queen's University (Belfast, Ireland), and Memphis State
University. Professor Gunter Marwedel of Hamburg wrote, "Yid-
dish has been taught at Hamburg University since 1922, with an
interruption from 1983 to the early sixties." He noted that the
University was the first institution of higher learning in Central
and Western Europe to make Yiddish an academic subject.
The Center's address is Old East Street School, P.O. Box 969,
Amherst, Mass. 01004.
By the way, the "pakn-treger," a character unique to Jewish
life in Eastern Europe, would travel from shtetl to shtetl peddling
Jewish books. He would untie his bundle, which he carried on his
back, and the whole shtetl would gather around as he displayed
his wares. He also told tales, giving his listeners a taste of life
beyond their village.
A Call From Israel
Volunteers for Israel
Regional Co-ordinator
Want the Adventure of your life? Want to do something wonder-
ful for Israel? Want to feel proud of yourself? Volunteers for
Israel offers you a chance to make all of these wishes come true.
American Jews have always been generous in their response to
r Israel's needs. Now Israel is asking for a special sort of help. It
needs your physical efforts as a civilian. Volunteers for Israel sup-
plies manpower to help keep the Israel Defense Forces prepared
for instant mobilization.
An enormous amount of labor is involved. Equipment has to be
cleaned, counted, oiled, repaired, painted, stored and then
reissued. The details are staggering. Civilians must be recruited
for this type of work.
In addition to the above and because of the dire need, two new
programs have recently been introduced working through the
Volunteers for Israel. Volunteers are now placed in hospitals
f where there is tremendous shortage of trained personnel to carry
I out all the necessary requirements of a functioning hospital. One
program is for the regular three week period and the other is for
those who can spend two to three months working in a cnUdren s
hospital. You are needed to help prepare the instruments for
operations, work in the kitchen, take the food trays and feed the
patients, work in the laundry or the pharmacy, give moral support
to the patients and to do whatever chore is needed at a given time.
A volunteer's willingness to pitch in and do whatever is asked
and our ability to set up a system that gets a job done shows toe
Israelis by example, that they have true friends in the Diaspora.
Volunteers return to the United States with a feehng of commit-
ment and nurtured by insights they never couM have gamed in

8,155 Soviet Jew Emigrated In 1987
NEW YORK (JTA) More than 8,000 Jews
emigrated from the Soviet Union during 1987, a nine-fold
increase over the 914 Jews who were permitted to leave in
1986, and the largest amount since 1981, when 9,500
Soviet Jews emigrated.
But Soviet Jewry activist groups expressed disappoint-
ment over the figure, noting that in the year in which
glasnost was introduced the number of Jewish emigres
comprised only a small fraction of the 400,000 Soviet Jews
who wish to emigrate.

The Jewish Book Review Series
continues in January at the
Broward County Library and the
Pompano Beach Library with a
review of two books by Primo
Levi, "If Not Now When?" / "The
Periodic Table." This program is
done in cooperation with the Cen-
tral Agency for Jewish Education
of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale. Primo
Levi, the most Jewish of many
Jewish writers who have flourish-
ed in Italy during the second half
of the 20th century is known to
American readers as an exquisite
memorialist of the Holocaust. "If
Not Now When?", first published
in Italy in 1982 is a midrash on a
maxim from the Miahna. In the
Periodic Table, the author shows
his ability to probe human events
with as much discriminating
power as he probes nature and in
his refusal to surrender the
sovereignty of independent in-
quiry to either solid matter of
stupid and savage politics.
The first review took place at
West Regional Library with book
reviewer, Laura Hochman;
Lauderdale Lakes Library with
Sylvia Miller; and Pompano Beach
Library with Shirley Wolfe.
Further reviews will be: Tues-
day, Jan. 19, Tamarac Library
