well-known designers. Store
owner Mary Assorgi, who is
presenting the show, said
she will feature a variety of
fabrics, including luscious
knits by the Irish designer
Corinne O'Hare, silks by
Adele Simpson and "crisp,
beautiful cottons and linens
by I.H. Marshall."
The elegant designs of
Albert Nippon will appear,
as well as Diana Dickinson's
flowing silks and knits by
Mike Korwin, Toula and
Steve Fabrikant. "When
you see Jane Pauley in a

"We know our customers
very well, and make a
special effort to get to know

Patience vs. Panic
Our knee-jerk reaction to pictures of soldiers manhandl-
ing demonstrators is to regard the soldiers as brutal and the
rioters as heroic. That's not always true.
In Gaza and the territory west of the Jordan River, a
score of Palestinian Arab demonstrators have been killed in
recent weeks. The bloodshed began with the stabbing of an
Israeli and escalated when a traffic accident killing four
Arabs was misperceived as retaliaton.
As in 1976 and 1981, the disorder has reached deep inside
Israel. Arabs holding Israeli citizenship went on strike and
demonstrated to show solidarity with their brethren who
want to create a Palestinian state out of land within ar-
tillery range of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Poignantly, during
Christmas season, the violence has affected celebratons in
places like Nazareth and Bethlehem.
What brought on the rioting? Gaza is overcrowded and
poor, as it has been for years, under both Arab and Israeli
rule. And the PLO, frustrated by its impotence in the Arab
world, foments uprisings and terror, but that is nothing
Added to the usual elements is this: Demonstrations often

The Making of Gaza
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 as the eyes of the young men who stand by the road-
side and stare. But for those who care for Israel, that is
They know that this should not be, that Israel soldiers
should not be, that Israel 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.
Yea, 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 the principals of decency
that won her essential support in the United States, decade
after troubled decade.
And now, newspapers and television screens are aflame

1988 U.JA.
The elegantly decorated Wood-

cording to Division chair Mark

Among the honorees, Louis Col-
ker, a retired wholesale electrical
distributor from Charleston, West
Virginia, has worked diligently on
behalf of the Federation/UJA,
B'nai B'rith, and the Jewish Na-

in Canada and Australia.
The evening will be a unique
time in the lives of the couples at-
tending. Schaffer indicated that

the men of the Palm-Aire Division
tee off for the 1988 Fifth Annual
UJA Golf Classic, Monday, Feb.
15, at the Pines and Palms
Courses in the Pompano Beach
Country Club community.
But the day's event is filled with
a purpose, helping the tens of
thousands of Jewish men, women
and children, in North Broward,
in Israel and 34 other lands.
Following the 9 a.m. shotgun
and day on the greens, the men
will partake in a dinner, complete
with hors d'oeuvres, an open bar,
and a special profound message
about the 1988 Jewish Federa-

According to Committee Chair-
man Alex Kutz and co-chair Sy
Roberts,' "We have the best bunch
of guys competing in this year's
exciting event. They all have a big
stake in the welfare of our great,
young and vibrant Federation,
each one enjoying the golf outing.,

philanthropy. And the really
wonderful thing is that they help
fulfill their responsibility to the

\&} CAMPAIGN '88
We Can Make the Difference Between a Good Year and a Great One!
1988 General Campaign
Welcome to the world of
Federation/UJA. In the past few
months, we have all rolled up our
sleeves, and put our best foot for-
ward in an effort to help all of our
brethren in need. I am sure that
we are all exhausted but ex-
hilarated, and it is the gratifying
knowledge of knowing that we are
helping our brothers and sisters
that keep us all going.
Our special thanks and con-
gratulations are extended to Jim
and Ava Phillips, our magnificent
Super Sunday '88 chairs, for their
record achievements on the Na-
tional UJA Phon-a-thon held Jan.
24 at the Soref JCC, Perlman
Campus. More information and
pictures on Super Sunday will ap-
pear in future FLORIDIANS.
Within these trying days of
headlines and blaring accounts of
Israel and the Gaza, West Bank
and shootings and all the other
tirades of the press, we do indeed
have our work cut out for us. The
confusion of the true goings-on in
Israel is somewhat distorted and
misleading, but the real fact
behind all the headlines is that
Israel will survive, the brave peo-
ple will continue to need
humanitarian aid and our Jewish
community of concerned and com-
mitted Jews will respond in kind.
As the FLORIDIAN goes to
Dress, our Federation/UJA team
Harold Oshry
has compiled more than $4 plus
million toward our important '88
goal of $7.6 million. And although
this is more than half of the need-
ed dollars, there is a tremendous
amount of work that must be done
to procure the balance. If we are
to make this a great year for all of
our family, then we must do great
things, for only through great
undertakings can we aid the
single mothers and fathers striv-
ing to maintain a profession and a
household here in Greater Fort
Lauderdale, the elderly couple
struggling to survive in Romanian
oppressed streets, and the little

Israel. Yes, if we continue to give
the same as in the past, it will be a
good year, and for that we should

good. We need to keep our family
strong and that takes our very

Condominium Division Event
This year's 500 Plus Club
Special Gifts luncheon of the
Federation/UJA Condominium
Division will be held at the
beautiful Maxine's restaurant,
located at 8300 West Sunrise
Blvd., Plantation, on Wednesday,
Feb. 3.
Event chairman Leo Weissman
said that he is expecting a very
nice turnout for this luncheon.
Weissman, who is chairman of
Sunrise Lakes Phase Four,
related, "We have worked hard to
enlarge this event over the past
three years. Many people who had
not contributed as much previous-
ly have been encouraged to join
the 500 plus club and have decided
to make their heartfelt commit-
ment and have joined the ranks."
Thus this is a culminating func-
tion for 500 plus members. It is a
victory event that celebrates their
generous commitment to the 1988
Federation/UJA campaign and
the 40th anniversary of the State
of Israel.
The guest speaker on this
festive occasion will be Leonard
Fein, who will focus on the many
programs in Israel and here at
home that Federation/UJA
dollars support. Fein is a writer
and teacher, who served as editor
and founder of "Moment"

gress of the campaign this year
and is hoping for a record turnout
at this event.
The minimum contribution to
attend this event is $54 which will
help save lives in Israel, in 33
other countries and here in the
Fort Lauderdale area.
Speaking on this occasion is pro-
fessor B.Z. Sobel from Haifa
University. Professor Sobel was
born and raised in New York City.
He has studied at some of the
finest Yeshivas and has a PhD
degree. He has taught at Miami
University, Brandeis University,
and at Hebrew University before

almost nothing has been said

start and grow because the demonstrators see some chance
of success. Palestinian Arabs, sensitive to any lack of
resolve in Israel, are aware of the divisions in the coalition
Government over the calling of a conference that would
surely end in major territorial concessions.
Morover, rioters including Iran-sponsored terrorists to
whom death is not a deterrent have noted increased
Israeli concern for world opinion. Israel is not the Soviet
Union, Syria or South Africa, where coverage of ruthless
crackdowns is blacked out. Demonstrators know that the
heaving of a Molotov cocktail is rarely if ever caught by the
camera, but the subsequent subduing of the bomb thrower
makes the authorities look cruelly repressive on frontpages
and television. Reprisals to terrorist attack have been
restrained, creating an illusion of weakness.
Add to this the urging of police restraint by the U.S. State
Department, plus finger-wagging by U.N. nations that
machine-gun demonstrators within their borders, plus the
hand wringing of well-meaning Jewish leaders safe in
America who are all too ready to ignore Iraeli security
needs and we can see why many Palestinian
demonstrators are not crazy to hope that violence will pay
To enumerate these unintentional incentives to violence is
not to call for ruthlessness in the suppression of disorder.
The purpose is to find the least worst course in a situation
that offers no best course to find a way least likely to
result in the loss of Arab life or the loss of Israeli freedom.
Most Israelis think, with good reason, that a PLO state at
their throat would be intolerable, and that territorial con-
cessions in that direction now would only serve to whet the
radical Arab appetite. It is not paranoid to think that the
PLO and most Arab totalitarian regimes want to drive the
democratic Jewish state out of the Middle East; it is
dangerously irresponsible to assume that today's Palesti-
nian Arab nationalists would be satisfied with a slice of arid
land looking at Israeli greenery.
Most Israelis refuse to believe that they are limited to the
Three Terrible Choices: (1) ruling over a colony of rightly
resentful, disenfranchised Arabs on the West Bank and
Gaza; (2) absorbing all those Arabs into an Israel that would
ultimately lose its Jewish identity, dr (3) driving them
across the Jordan*River into a Palestinian state on the East
Another choice will emerge. In time, realistic Arab rulers
beyond Egypt will stop trying to distract their people from
internal inequality by perpetuating their "holy war." In
time, Arab residents of lands adjacent to Israel's borders
will be induced to follow pragmatic local Arab leaders who
deliver real economic gains rather than submit to
Which is wiser to bet that time is on the side of terror
or on the side of reason? Most of Israel's Jewish citizens
want to let historical reality take root. That is why they are
prepared to deal sternly with disorder within their borders
and are likely to begin deporting West Bank troublemakers
to the East Bank. That is why they sit tight, behind defensi-
ble borders, and await the generation of Arabs who will ac-
cept autonomy without sovereignty over disputed lands.
The hard-working, intelligent Palestinian Arabs, long
despised and used as pawns by a hostile Arab world, are not
destined to be ruled over or absorbed or dispossessed by

Then, in 1967, Israel stunned
the Arabs and the rest of the
world by trouncing Arab armies.
She threw the Jordanians out of
the West Bank and Jerusalem, the
Egyptians out of Gaza and the
Syrians out of the Golan Heights.

the Arabs had accepted that,
there would today be a separate
Palestinian state 40 years old;
Gaza and its people would be a
part of it.
But the Arab states fell upon
Israel and in utter fury tried to kill
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. Jor-
dan, now admired in the West,
seized the West Bank. It also cap-
tured most of Jerusalem, defiled
Jewish holy places, banned Jews
and destroyed hopes of interna-
tionalization of the Holy City.
Israel lived within mortar range
of the Egyptians, the Jordanians
and the Syrians, who had snatch-
ed heights overlooking Israel; the
mortars were fired. For 20 years,
the territory that was to have
been a Palestinian state under the
UN plan was used by the PLO for

back their borders so that they
would never again live looking

What difference does it make,
so many years later? For one
thing it cleanses the mind and
perhaps the soul to combine sor-
row 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 indefinate-
ly, perhaps forever.
Peace, which in the end must
mean recognition of Israeli securi-
ty and Palestinian reality, is
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 to-
day. To pretend Israel brought
this on herself is hypocracy 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

At The Women's Division $18,000 Event..
In December 1987 the Women's
Division of the Florida Region of
the United Jewish Appeal spon-
sored its Premier Regional
$18,000 Event to honor those
women who make an independent
commitment of $18,000 or more
to the 1988 Jewish Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
According to Ethel Waldman,
Fort Lauderdale's chairman for
this inaugural event, the seven
women from Fort Lauderdale who
attended the luneheon made up
the largest delegation from any of
the Florida communities. "I am
really quite proud of our participa-
tion," said Waldman, "because I
believe that the women of Fort
Lauderdale have set an admirable
example for independent giving."
Waldman explained that in addi-
tion to the seven women who at-
tended the luncheon at the Boca
Raton Hotel, there are five other
women in Fort Lauderdale who
make an $18,000 minimum
Atending the event with chair-
man Waldman were Celia Farber,
Alvera Gold, Evelyn Gross,
Deborah Hahn, Fran Levey, and
Claire Oshry. Unable to attend
were Florence Gerson, Julia Mer-
rill, Anita Perlman, Bren Simon,
and Barbara Wiener.

PARIS (JTA) A self-
proclaimed commando group
of Jewish youths raided the of-
fice here of a publication of the
extreme right-wing National
Front, smashing furniture,
tearing out telephone lines and
destroying part of its archives.
The group, consisting of a
dozen young people, left
leaflets signed "Jewish Com-
bat Organization Section
Secondary Schools," and say-
ing it will not "tolerate the
anti-Semitic propaganda of a
hoodlum like Jean Marie Le
Pen." It warned anti-Semites
to "tremble with fear."
The editor of the publication,
Roland Gaucher, said the
group burst into the offices of
National Hebdo, with faces
masked by scarves and wear-
ing helmets. He said the raid
lasted less than five minutes
and that the group left long
before the police arrived.
National Hebdo is a relative-
ly obscure weekly supporting
Le Pen's bid for the French
presidency and generally close
to his extreme right-wing
political movement.

A Will Is Insurance
A will is like an insurance policy.
It insures that certain things will
occur upon your death. The mak-
ing of a will involves a one-time
"premium" charge in the form of
a fee to your attorney.
Who Shall Inherit Your
When you write a will, you
designate who inherits your pro-
perty. If you die without a will in
Florida, the State of Florida will
make disposition in accordance
with its laws which may have
adverse tax consequences and
may not be what you want to hap-
pen. A will is almost an absolute
necessity if you want to either: a)
pass property to charities or per-
sons who are not your legal heirs
designated by the State; b) pass
specific items of property to cer-
tain charities or special persons
Fifteen Reasons Your Will May
Be Obsolete
You should feel justifiably proud
if you made your will. But don't
regard your will as having been
carved on a stone tablet. Think of
it as being stored on a word pro-
cessor easily changeable to
meet changing needs and cir-
cumstances. What kinds of
changes? Here are 15 events
(there may be many more) that

Over 60 people came out to the
lovely new home of Walter and
Rita Bernstein to hear the stirring
words of Holocaust survivor,
Author Gerda Klein, at the recent
Federation/UJA Woodmont
Cocktail Reception.
As they heard the touching
story of Mrs. Klein, Woodmont
residents showed their heartfelt
generosity by contributing an ad-
ditional $90,000 to the 1988 cam-
paign on this particular evening.
Federation/UJA General Cam-
paign chairman Harold L. Oshry,
stated, "This is another of the
many phases involved in the suc-
cessful operation of this year's
campaign. At this reception you
have the elite of Woodmont
everyone that is here is very much
into the campaign with their
hearts, mind, and generosity."
Host and Woodmont Major
Gifts co-chairman, Walter Berns-
tein, said, "It was delightful to see
so many wonderful people here in
one room, who are all active
because they care about what hap-
pens in Israel and right here in
Broward County."
At the Cocktail Reception, Ger-
da Klein, author and
humanitarian, said that she was
only one of 120 that survived the
Nazi death march involving 4000
Jews towards the end of World
War II. She was liberated by Kurt
Klein, who has been her husband
for 41 years.
People have often asked Gerda
why she went on against such im-
possible odds and misery in the
concentration camps. Klein
responds by saying, "Though we
were always cold and hungry, we
were never without hope. There
was not one case of suicide in the

to the spirit of our people, who

In discussing the needs of the

munities, Klein related, "We must

which we live in appreciation of
our own blessings."

was one of many that were very
moved by Klein's speech. "She
taught me a lesson," said West.
"Compared to what she went
through, the things that we take
so seriously are often rather
trivial. I'll look at my home and
family in a different light after
this night."
Florence Straus, a very active
member of the Woodmont UJA
campaign and a wearer of the
Lion of Judah, stated, "Gerda was
very inspiring and we were all
lucky to have had the privilege of
listening to her on this very
special evening."

Inverrary Dinner
Candlelighting Ceremony
The lighting of candles has been
a Jewish tradition since biblical
times. All over the world, Jewish
women kindle the lights each Fri-
day evening to usher in the Sab-
bath and a special twisted
taper is used for the Havdalah ser-
vice, after sundown the following
evening. Another type of candle is
used in Jewish homes at the time
of Shiva. Candles are lit on the oc-
casion of every Jewish holiday. A
separate one shines each and
every evening of Chanukah. This
year we are celebrating both the
fortieth anniversary of the State
of Israel and the twentieth birth-
day of our own Federation.
The candlelighting ceremony at
the Inverrary Pacesetter Ball
recalled the many ac-
complishments, aspirations, and
goals of our local Federation and
the United Jewish Appeal all over
the world. We would like to share
that portion of the evening with
the rest of the Greater Ft.
Lauderdale community.
(1) Each afternoon Mr. Marks,
well into his eighties, brings his
wheelchair bound wife to the
Kosher Nutrition program for
lunch. She has had Parkinson's for
the last seven years. This is their
only hot meal of the day. Over
1000 such meals are served every
week in our community.
(2) Every day men and women
get together to learn, to exercise,
to socialize and to talk politics.
Proving you are as young as you
feel, the average age for those at
The Gathering Place is 87.
(3) The Helene and Samuel
Soref Jewish Community Center
of Greater Ft. Lauderdale is the
focus of Jewish endeavors for peo-
ple of all ages. We gather on the
Perlman Campus for activities
that range from Israel In-
dependence Day celebrations in
May ... to Federation's Super
Sunday telethon next Sunday,
Jan. 24.
(4) It certainly was a wonderful
experience to see the, bright, shin-
ing faces of the students of The
David Posnack Hebrew Day
School as they recently dedicated
a beautiful new building. We have
the only Hebrew Day School in all
of Ft. Lauderdale.
(5) Jews in prison? Sounds in-
credible, but the Federation's
Rabbi Albert Schwartz, through
the Federation Chaplaincy Pro-
gram, makes personal visits to
prisons as well as hospitals and
nursing homes offering spiritual
and counselling services.
(6) Where would Judaism be
without education? CAJE, The
Central Agency For Jewish
Education, provides our communi-
ty with "all you ever wanted to
know about Judaism but were
afraid to ask." Just ask ... Dr.
Abe Gittelson and his extremely
knowledgeable staff.
(7) Residents of our community
have found endowment funds,
legacies, or letters of intent, ways
to ensure their continuing support
of their fellow Jews. The Founda-
tion of Jewish Philanthropies
builds reserves and provides for
any crisis, as well as augmenting
resources for many. innovative
new programs.
(8) The cold weather in
Washington, DC did not bother
the young people of BBYO and
Hillel when they joined 80 other
people from Ft. Lauderdale in the
Protest for Soviet Jews. With
assistance and direction from
Federation, they are l>ecoming
our community's future leaders.
(9) South Floridian's worried
over the fate of little Rachal
Rauser. Jewish Family Service of
Broward County is the agency
that helped reunite her with her
family. They also provide a full
range of services from "respite
care" to family counselling, and
cooperate with HIAS in the reset-
tlement of new Americans in our
(10) Twenty years ago a group
of seven women gathered, in the
home of Pola Brodzki, to form our
Women's Division. This year the
women of Ft. Lauderdale have
alteady raised over one million
dollars. Thirty three women wear
ruby lions signifying com-
mitments of over $10,000 each, 46
women have the diamond Lion of
Judah ... a gift of $6000, and 30
women enjoy the Lapis Lion, for
which they have pledged $2600.
Hundreds of other women give in-
dependent gifts, meaningful to,
the campaign.
(11) Have you been on a mission
to Israel? It is a never to be forgot-
ten experience. Through our Mis-
sions Program you will meet the
people and the Land of Israel. You
will visit Kibbutzim and the
Knesset. You might even enjoy a
salty swim in the Dead Sea.
(12) It is heart breaking to know
that 3 million of our fellow Jews
suffer in the Soviet Union. They
remain in desperate need of our
help. The token release of many of
the outspoken refuseniks should
encourage us to work even harder
for the freedom of Soviet Jews.
(13) There are remnant com-"
munities ... all that is left from
the Holocaust, in such Eastern
European countries as Poland,
Czechoslovakia, Rumania,
Hungary and Yugoslavia. Most of
the people are elderly, many
haven't got enough food or warm
clothing. The American Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC)
provides more than the basic
necessities. It shows them that
other Jews still care.
(14) We cannot forget the
30,000 Jews left in Iran. Those
4,000 in Syria and the 3,800 in
Tunisia who must be cared for.
We sustain their hopes. We are
the key to their survival.
(15) Many of the 10,000 Ethio-
pian Jews who remain in the Gun-
dar are now falling victim to the
latest famine. In too many cases
parents and children were
separated by "Operation Moses."
With our help, they can be
reunited in Israel.
(16) It takes money and dedica-
tion to resettle new immigrants,
build villages and farms in rural
areas, and support programs for
troubled and disadvantaged
youth. The Jewish Agency for
Israel also promotes the
revitalization of distressed
(17) Like most of the children,
who were rescued from the
famine in Ethiopia, six year old
Ehud is an orphan. His parents
died of starvation. Every night he
cries himself to sleep on his cot at
the Youth Aliyah village. His emo-
tional scars run deep. It will cost
$2,500 to support and educate him
for one year, but some day he may
sit in the Knesset.
(18) Ft. Lauderdale residents
have a unique relationship with
the communities of "Kfar Saba"
for that is 'our twin city.' Project
Renewal is a very special program
that has united hundreds of
thousands of Israelis in
neighborhoods throughout Israel
with the diaspora. Because of this
program, all of you have a 'family
in Israel' and they have American
mishpoka who care about them.
(19) Boris and Ludmilla arrived
in America from the Soviet Union,
nine years ago. They were met in
New York by HIAS, The Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society. Today,
they live happy, productive lives
in Ft. Lauderdale where they are
the owners of an excellent tailor-
ing shop.
(20) Last, but by no means least,
we shall light a candle to the
Jewish Floridian of Greater Ft.
Lauderdale, which keeps us all
well informed, makes us aware of
these many obligations and com-
mitments and lets us know that
we have successfully reached our

Another Perspective on American Jews

Religion of American Jem."

Reviewed by Rath B. Wanum
In an age when Jews in the
United States seem to be so divid-
ed into their own religious camps,
when the extremes are going fur-
ther in their own directions and
"pluralism" is becoming a debas-
ed value, there is still one thing
that unites most of them philan-
thropy, social services, concern
for the whole community.
American Jews are now epitomiz-
ing the age-old motto, "All Israel
are responsible for one another."
The phrase, "civil religion," was
coined in 1967 by Robert S. Bellah
in an analysis of American institu-
tions and, now, some twenty
years later, Jonathan S. Woocher
has applied it. in a detailed study
which is also a specialized history
and analysis, to the American
Jewish community.
When, in the 19th century,
Emancipation had its impact on
European Jewry, one result was
to loosen the bonds of religion and
religious law (halakhah). Without
those restraints and guidelines,
Jews were forced to think serious-
ly abut being Jews. Religiously,
one result was assimilation;
another was denominationalism.
Secularly, still another which
bloomed in this country, was a
"religion without a theology"
which resulted in the whole struc-
ture of welfare services, Federa-
tions and UJA.
The unification of American
Jews in,this "civil religion" is
nothing short of phenomenal. Of
course, two major triggers to the
expansion, of civil religion were
the simultaneous phenomena of
the Holocaust and of Zionism.
Jews emerged from the former as
no longer quiescent. They voiced
their opinions, they railed against
governments and declared,
"Never again!" From Zionism
and the establishment of the State
of Israel they acquired a prideful
new cause. Israel, it its glorious
and, simultaneously, precarious
short existence through repeated
wars, has pulled at the heartstr-
ings and opened the pursestrings
of most Jews. Fortunately,
American Jews were, and are, in a
position to respond.
Like all religions, civil religion,
too (even though it is still a fairly
recent development) has. its own
proper trappings. It has myths
and rituals (have you ever tried to
convince a fund-raiser not to have
a dinner?) and leaders who are
One interesting development of
this civil religion of American
Jews is the trend, in recent years,
for its leaders and projects to
become more "religiously
Jewish." Not so long ago the
plaint was that Jewish social ser-
vice agencies were characterized
by a greater concern with the
"social service" aspect of their
function and almost not at all with
the "Jewish" one. That situation
no longer obtains. As Woocher
points out, in his charts and table
in Chapter IV, the civil Jewish ac-
tivists are combining a concern
for the "civil" along with the
"sacred." They are active in
religious life as well, their public
functions (as well as their private
lives) are kosher, the Sabbath is
publicly observed, Jewish educa-
tion is supported and encouraged.
Woochers Sacred Survival is an
important contribution to what is
both contemporary American
Jewish history and American
Jewish sociology. It casts a clear
and integrating light on much that
goes on around us, on much that
most of us have had a share in,
and it gives us much to be proud

From a True Friend of Israel..
Editor's Note: The following was adopted by the AFL-CIO Con-
vention in Miami, Florida on October, 1987.
The Middle East remains a region of great instability. Acts of
terrorism and hostage-taking are near daily occurrences. Amid
this sea of war, aggression, and tyranny one nation stands as a
beacon of civility and democratic rule. That nation is Israel, which
has succeeded in sustaining its democracy for nearly 40 years.
The fact that it has done so is a tribute to its roots in the principles
of trade unionism. As the 40th Anniversary of Israel's birth ap-
proaches, the AFL-CIO reaffirms its long-standing and consistent
support for a state built on the pioneering vision of the trade
union movement. We applaud Israel's staunch commitment to
democracy and social justice and restate our solidarity with
Histadrut, Israel's labor federation.
The AFL-CIO urges all its affiliated unions to continue theft*'
strong support of Israel and to give Histadrut the material and
moral assistance it needs in its social, economic, educational,
cultural, and health initiatives.

The following is prestmted by
Deborah Heart and Lung Center
as part of a public service cam-
paign to increase healthcare.
There are many benefits to be
derived from exercise. It is no
longer speculation, but a proven
fact that the aging process can be
retarded by a program of regular
exercise and a sensible approach
to eating.
Aerobics, a method of exercis-
ing that involves the sustained use
of large muscle groups, including
jogging, walking, swimming and
biking can have a positive effect
on the cardiovascular system. It
can lead to a reduction in resting
heart rate, blood pressure, and
blood lipids (cholesterol and
triglycerides), while it increases
HDL (good cholesterol) and the
ability to transport oxygen all
of which are factors in avoiding a
heart attack.
There are also psychological
benefits associated with exercise
that affect longevity. People who
engage in regular exercise are
better able to deal with stress; are
less depressed; and are more
secure, easy-going and adven-
turous. They also have fewer pro-
blems sleeping and enjoy a longer
and fuller sex life.
The benefits of exercise have an
affect on the onset of osteoporosis
(a deterioration of bone mass).
These bone changes usually begin
during and after menopause in
women and after age 50 in men.
Studies show that the stress caus-
ed to the one during weigh-
bearing exercises (walking, jogg-
ing and running) causes an in-
crease in the bone minerals. This,
in addition to an adequate intake
of calcium starting before age 40,
should retard the onset or perhaps
prevent the occurrence of

Perhaps the most exciting
benefit of exercise is the possiblity
of reversing artereosclerosis, or
hardening of the arteries. It is on-

that plaque deposits can be

are reduced to 170 thorough

minutes on a daily basis.

to have experienced a heart at-

A Sense of Proportion
"Mideast Violence Alarms U.S. Jews," said a New; York Times
headline. The subhead read 'Anxious and Concerned,' Say
Some of the Groups Others Defend Israel."
"U.S. Jews Express Concern," the Washington Post headlined.
"Continued Violence Could Erode Support for Israel, Leaders
Say," the subhead added.
In the two weeks beginning Dec. 9, Israeli troops killed 21
Palestinian Arabs, wounded scores more, and arrested hundreds
to quash violent protests in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. More
than 60 Israelis were hurt. It was the worst of several eruptions
since Israel gained control of the territories illegally occupied
by Egypt and Jordan, respectively in the 1967 Six-Day War.
But it was not the worst thing to happen to Israel in the past 30
years. A moment's recollection of the 1978 Yom Kippur War or
the Lebanese quicksand from 1982 to 1985 attests to that.
However, perceptions of violence especially when provided
long-distance by television carry their own proportions. The
civilian throwing a rock or Molotov cocktail, wielding an iron bar
or knife, is rarely photographed. The soldier responding with gun-
fire almost always is.
New York Time* correspondent Tom Friedman, speaking at a
Tel Aviv University symposium last summer on media coverage
of Israel, said that, if seen on their own, the Palestinian Arabs
would bulk no larger than the Kurds. "Their great advantage,"
Friedman observed, "is that their enemy is the Jew." He added
that "in the Middle East there are no good guys and bad guys, on-
ly civilians and soldiers."
In that formulation soldiers always lose especially Jewish
soldiers, and perhaps especially among Jewish audiences. Judging
by last month's dismay calls to the Israeli Embassy doubled,
the majority critical those wedded to the narrow-focus reality
of television might have quit if confronted at the time with
videotapes showing the blood shed of 1948.
Arab riots in the 1920's and 1930's in which hundreds of Jews
died did not "erode" support for Jewish settlement in
Palestine. Neither did wars between Arab states and Israel in
each of the four following decades.
Neither should the present trouble, unless one fantasizes that
Israel can resolve the underlying problems unilaterally. In reality,
it must have partners: Palestinian Arab interlocutors as commit-
ted to Israel's needs as Israel is to theirs.
And Israel is committed. In the Camp David Accords it pledged
itself to seek a solution which would 'recognize the legitimate
rights of the Palestinian people and their just requirements."
Yet after seven decades of intercommunal conflict, there exists
no remotely comparable Palestinian Arab declaration. The PLO,
"sole, legitimate representative of the Palestinian people" as
designated by the Arab League remains officially committed to
the destruction of Israel. Camp David's practically open-ended
autonomy provisions go begging.
The recent violence may have delayed, not advanced, prospects
for mutual recognition. The mother of one Gaxa fatality was
quoted as saying, "We want to live in peace and we want the Jews
out of our land. I don't care whatever happens as long as we get
our land."
But she was a refugee 39 years ago from a village near
Ashkelon; the land she referred to was not the Gaza Strip or the
West Bank but pre-1967 Israel.
Meanwhile, there was widespread, sometimes violent support
for the demonstrators in Gaza and the West Bank among Israel s
Arabs. This reaffirmed sociological studies indicating that the
overwhelming majority define their nationality as Palestinian,
not Israeli.
This trend among Israeli Arabs, who comprise one-sixth the
population inside the 1967 "green line" and will total more
than one-fourth in another generation means that Israel laces
the danger of becoming a binational state even without the west
Bank and Gaza.
And precipitate withdrawal from the territories would protect
neither Israel's security nor Jewish rights. Who would see to
Palestinian Arab rights in such an event impotent P***""*?
Arab moderate* or the PLO and Islamic fundamentalists, with
help from Moscow and Tehran?
Obviously, the status quo is not on Israel's side; so its friends
should be concerned but not demoralized.

A MOVE to allow Israel to refinance part of its debt to the
United States will be made in Congress, according to Sen.
Lawton Chiles (D., Fla.). Israel owes the U.S. nearly $10 billion
for economic and defense purchases. About $1 billion of the
defense loans were taken out when interest rates were at 12 to 14
percent. Chiles' proposal would allow Israel to "prepay" the $1
billion by refinancing the loan in the private market at the current
interest rates of 10 to 11 percent, thus saving millions of dollars.

gress a proposed arms sale package for Saudi Arabia, bipartisan

cond year, she is currently work-
ing on her assignment to present
next term's slate of Officers and
Board members.
Both Dad and Daughters have

DIRECTOR, JCC: Phil Cofman
says, "I am delighted to see the
perpetuation of Jewish continuity
of leadership passed on to adult
children. Our community needs
and requires implementation of
the 'generation to generation'
concept, as exemplified by Irving
and Elaine."
Libowsky family comes from
Atlanta. The Conn's, Plantation
residents, are in this area for 10
years. The Libowskys, of Pom-
pano's Palm-Aire, followed them
to South Florida eight years ago.
Elaine is the oldest of four, her
siblings presently residing in
Alabama, Georgia and Texas.
Libowsky lived in the New York
area for several years where he
attended and graduated from
Brooklyn City College, and subse-
quently earned a Law Degree
from Brooklyn Law School. By-
passing the law, he chose a career
in the furniture business in Atlan-
ta, where he and his wife, Esther,
raised their family.
The Libowsky family is well
known in Atlanta Jewish circles
for its support of Jewish organiza-
tions and their causes. Libowsky's
involvement with the Atlanta
Federation's Jewish Home for the
Aged was recognized as a major
contribution to the welfare of the
city's needy elderly residents. He
hopes to accomplish the same
Elaine is married to Alan Cohn,
an Eastern Airlines Pilot for the
past 21 years. And when he's on
the ground, he too gives a good
deal of time to Federation,
GOPAC and AIPAC. Their
children, Stacey 18, and Warren
16, follow in the paths of their
parents and grandparents.
"They've been JCC campers, they
go to BBYO meetings and to
Hebrew High School right here on
the JCC campus," says Grandpa
Irving proudly. "They've also
been to summer High School pro-
grams in Israel."

Goes Kosher
Unlike most Ivy League
schools with large Jewish
populations, Cornell Universi-
ty is not near a city with a
substantial Jewish community.
In fact, Cornell's 3,000
students comprise the bulk of
the Jewish community of
Ithaca, N.Y.
Alumni are trying to change
this with a $600,000 campaign
to build a 300-seat kosher din-
ing facility as well as renovate
the Young Israel House, a
21-room facility.
The school traditionally has
been at a disadvantage in
recruiting students to observe
kashrut. In addition to having
no kosher butchers or
restaurants within a 40-mile
radius, its only kosher dining
plan, operated by the National
Council of Young Israel, can
feed only a few dozen

Editor's Note-: This message was received by National UJA
Chairman Martin F. Stein
December 4, 1987
I am pleased to acknowledge and applaud the efforts of
the "Campaign to the Summit" on behalf of Soviet Jewry.
Peacefully yet forcefully, in true democratic spirit, you
are making your cause known not only to the Soviet leader-
ship but to the world at large. Your cause has always had
our undivided support the struggle of Soviet Jews for
freedom of emigration and the right to practice their
religion without fear of persecution. Their valiant quest for
freedom exemplifies the cause of liberty for all mankind.
The Soviet leadership has taken some limited, but
positive, steps on the issue of human rights. We welcome
these actions, but they are far from enough. There are
more recent signs of stagnation, but I have nigh hopes for
new, forward steps by the Soviets. I shall press for them in
my talks with General Secretary Gorbachev in the coming
days for the release of all refuseniks, for full freedom of
emigration, and for complete freedom of religion and
cultural expression. We shall not be satisfied with less.
We you and I cannot relax our vigil. Let me say to
all of you and to those who wait in the Soviet Union if
freedom is won through faith, dedication, and
perserverance, I have no doubt that your efforts will
ultimately prevail. God bless you all.

Rosh ha Shana le Ilanot the New Year for trees Wednes-
day, Feb. 8.
Agriculturally, this holiday marked the date from which to
count the age of a tree for indication of the maturation of the fruit
of the tree. (Fruit could not be eaten until the fourth year. This
standardizes the birthday of the tree).
Seasonally, this is the approximate time when the sap begins to
flow once again marking the refructification and rebirth, as it
were, of the tree, following its winter hibernation.
There are few customs associated with Tu B'Shevat. Most com-
mon is the eating of fruit from trees and in particular, fruit
from trees which are grown in Israel.
