Alvin, a past president of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, general cam-
paign chairman of the Federa-
tion/UJA, and one of the most
distinguished humanitarians in
the country, provided the impetus
and expertise in the Jewish com-
munity's young leadership
development programs and
organization. His determination
and concern to accomplish the
very best for the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish community
resulted in what today has become
one of the most highly successful,
well established Federations in
Strengthening Jewish life local-
ly, in Israel, and globally were
always his primary objectives and
even today, his words and
thoughts are projected in Federa-
tion's day-to-day operation. As
part of his legacy, through the
Gross Family Foundation, and the
heartfelt desires of his wife
Evelyn and the Gross family, the
Chazon was born, became a reali-
ty and the wonderful work and
achievements of Alvin carried on.
According to Harold L. Oahry,
Federation executive vice presi-
dent and general campaign chair-
man, "We at the Federation/UJA
are indeed grateful to Alvin,
Evelyn and his family for this pn>
found endowment. We know that
the young leaders on this special
Mission will speak with one voice
about the vital role of the Federa-
tion/UJA, and echo the impor-
tance of the life-giving, life-
enriching services in the same
manner as Alvin had. Now, they
can see firsthand how the funds
are used for Israel's humanitarian
and social welfare programs an
opportunity that for some will
come once in a lifetime. The Gross
family have indeed become our
best source of volunteer
spokesman advocates, because
when these young team members
return, they will relate the
miracles of Israel to their friends,
etc. For it is only through the
preserverence of committed and
dedicated men and women that
we build our strong, organized
and concerned community."

Fort Lauderdale Federation Remits $3.3 Million
National UJA Collects $372.2 Million in 1987
NEW YORK, N.Y. The
United Jewish Appeal, which
meets humanitarian needs in the
U.S., Israel and 33 other coun-
tries, collected a total of $372.2
million for calendar year 1987. On
one day, December 31, $41.7
million was collected the largest
cash collection on any single day
in UJA history.
Locally, the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale remit-
ted a record $3,306,845 to the Na-
tional UJA, and according to
Sheldon S. Polish, Federation
president, and Harold L. Oshry,
general campaign chair. "This
was a record-breaking achieve-
ment and one that our North
Broward community can be proud
of for helping tens of thousands of
our brethren in Israel and
The cash results are especially
noteworthy at this time, said
Larry J. Hochberg, UJA National
"Exclusive of our special Opera-
tion Moses campaign the UJA
raised $370.6 million in 1986,"
Hochberg said. "But the large
payments of last year, motivated
in part by incentives of the Tax
Reform Act, did not detract from
the 1987 cash campaign."
Hochberg thanked Martin F.
Stein, UJA National Chairman,
for his personal involvement in en-
couraging communities to meet or
exceed their cash remittances. He
praised the UJA Regional Cash
Chairmen and the community
Cash Chairmen around the coun-
try for their outstanding efforts in
assisting cash collections.
"When we consider the October
stock market decline and the
unsettled state of the nation's ec-
nomy" commented Hochberg,
"the results this year prove that
Jews recognize that they are
responsible one for the other re-
gardless of transitory economic
events or changing tax laws. We
overcame these difficulties with
the help and dedication of the
UJA and local federations, both
lay leaders and professional staff.
Moreover the results prove that
the American Jewish community
is steadfastly committed to
meeting the needs of the people of
Israel regardless of political or
other events that may occur from
time to time."

"... set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
DEBORAH FULLER HAHN
DIN A BAT-LEAH
Din* was the only daughter in a
family of 12 sons. She was, of
course, overprotected by her
brothers as well as her parents.
Her story is one of romance and
revenge, of pain and death, of in-
cest, bigamy, and even slave
trading. This is not an afternoon
soap opera nor is it next session's
script for 'Dynasty.' It is,
however, a narrative straight
from the bible.
Genesis 34:1-31 says, "... Dins
the daughter of Leah whom she
had born unto Jacob, went out to
see the daughters of the land. And
Shechem the son of Hamor the
Hivite, the chief of the country
saw her, and he took her, and lay
with her and humbled her. And his
soul did cleave unto Dina the
daughter of Jacob, and be loved
the maiden and spoke comforting-
ly unto the maiden ..."
The biblical story tells us that
Shechem and his father came to
Dina's family to ask for her hand
in marriage. Dina's brothers ob-
jected both on the grounds that
she had been 'raped' and that she
could not marry someone who was
they would never allow their
sister to marry him unless he, and
all the men of his land, would be
circumcised, Shechem must have
loved her very much, for he im-
mediately agreed to the operation.
"... And it came to pass on the
third day when they were in pain,
that... Simeon and Levi, Dina's
brethren, took each man his
sword, and came upon the city
unawares, and slew all the males.
And they slew Hamor and
Shechem his son.. .and they took
Dina out of Shechem's house, and
went forth ..." (Gen: 84-26)
The rabbis and learned men of
Israel have, for centuries, examin-
ed the existence of Jacob and his
12 sons. We know that, in addition
to the murder of their sister's
lover and the entire male popula-
tion, they also plundered the city.
(In a subsequent chapter (Gen:
87-28) these same men sold their
brother Joseph into slavery for 20
pieces of silver.) Simeon married
his sister, Dina, and then took an
additional wife. This second wife,
Bunah, was "a damsel he had
taken captive in the campaign
against Shechem." Obviously, the
lives of the founders of the 12
tribes of Israel were well
documented. Yet, there is not one
word of how Dina felt in any ac-
counting. We are informed that
she had been raped. She was (in
the opinion of scholars) at fault for
going out alone to meet with other
Perhaps Dina wanted to have
sometime alone, away from her
ever watchful brothers. Let us
suppose she was not going to meet
her friends, but was keeping a
date with the 'prince of the city.'
Did this 'chief of the land' force
Dina to remain a prisoner in his
home ... or did she stay volun-
tarily? Can we believe that a man
who has just raped a woman
would subject himself to the pain
of circumcision and the humilia-
tion of confronting her family?
There are no hints of what Dina
might have experienced. Indeed,
there is not even a suggestion as
to the emotions her mother, Leah,
felt about this whole situation in-
volving, her children. We only

their honor sullied. After the kill-
ings, Dins is forcibly taken from

brothers. Had she been consulted,

Dina and Shechem produced a
daughter whose nsme was
'Anath.' Dina's brothers plot to
loll the infant But the baby is sav-
ed by Jacob, who takes a piece of
tin, inscribes the Holy Name on it
and hangs the amulet around the
neck of his granddaughter. He
then abandons the child under s
thornbush. Anath survives ...
many years later she marries her
uncle, Joseph, in Egypt. Dina's

as "the one who caused the house
of Jacob to be dishonored."

JCC JUICE BOTTLE
THE ATLANTIC .
.. .It was picked up at sea on
January 19,1988; by one Mario de
Melo of Gracious Island in the
Azores! The sea mail special from
JCC camper Brayden Simms, age
six, began with an adventure pro-
ject for JCC campers during the
second week of the camping
season '87. About 300 boys and
girls, kindergarten age through
fifth grade, took a clear glass or
plastic juice of soda bottle from
home one with a screw top
filled out a form-note with their
name and the JCC address, asking
finder to return. The notes were
placed inside the bottle, the caps
screwed on tight, and off they go
- to the Coast Guard Station in
Dania. The "guardsman" enjoy
participating in the bottle project
every year and dump the load
several miles off shore into the
currents of the gulf stream. ...
And campers are pretty excited
and thrilled when some notes
come back from Boca ... Deer-
field Beach and the like!
Last year a note was returned
by Anne Hudson, a London orni-
thologist who was bird watching
on the beach of the island of Uist
in the outer Hebrides Islands off
the West Coast of Scotland!
This year oceanographers say
that chances were again
astronomical for someone to pick
up the .orange juice bottle which
rode the waves thousands of miles
northeast across the Atlantic,
then turning south to be found off
the coast of Portugal ... the Gulf
Brayden is a kindergartener at
Sandpiper Elementary School.
The note in his bottle, written in
"halting English, came in very
good shape after seven months.
Mr. De Melo says he is a fisher-
man and saw the bottle in the
water while in his boat He wished
Brayden good luck.
Good geography lessons learned
at the JCC! How many of us know
the Azores are composed of three
island groups about 900 miles off
the coast of Portugal, with a
population of perhaps 300,000.
We remember the Azores as a
refueling station before the ad-
vent of today's numerous non-
stop flights across the sea!
"ART WITH ORT"
TO BE REPRESENTED
IN MAJOR ART SHOW
To usher in this year's giant
celebration of the State of Israel's
40th birthday, a major art show
featuring Jewish artists is plann-
ed to open the night before. The
JCC Israel Independence Day
Festival on campus will be held
Sunday April 17.
Cooperating in this first time
"association in art" are the Plan-
tation Chapter of ORT (Organiza
ing) and the Adult Cultural Arts
Department of the JCC.
"We hope to have more than 20
artists represented," says Susana
Flaum who heads the JCC depart-
ment. "So far, our 'sculptor-in-
residence' Ben Goodkin, has pro-
mised us several of his prized
pieces." Goodkin teaches
"sculpture" at the JCC. He is
world renowned and represented
in the best collections including a
bust of John L. Lewis on perma-
nent display in the Smithsonian
gallery of sculpture.
Goodkin, who is listed in "Who's
Who in American Art," among
other prominent art publications,
will share space with three other
internationally known artists, Irv-
ing Amen, Amram Ebgi, and
Emanuel Senary, as well as many
additional rising and well-known
artists. Lynn Maiman and
Margaret Alperstein co-chair the
Art Show for ORT.

away look in his eye, hold* a

Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies
Creating A Legacy
For the 21st Century
How To Leave A
Legacy For Tobmhtow
Here are several ways you can
invest in our community and
receive personal benefits.
Philanthropic Fund: A named
fund established by means of cash,
property, or other assets. The
donor has the privilege of making
advisory recommendations for the
distribution of the income or prin-
cipal of the Fund.
Charitable Remainder Trust:
A trust which pays out for life, or
for a specified number of years,
and the assets of which are turned
over to a designated charity after
the deaths of the income
Charitable Lead Trust: An ar-
rangement in which there is a con-
tribution of an income interest to
a charity. Property is transferred
to a trust and an immediate in-
come interest in the property is
donated to a charitable organiza-
tion for a period of years or for the
life or lives of the individual or in-
dividuals. The remainder is either
retained by the donor or given to a
Windfall Gifts: A windfall gift
takes place prior to the sale or li-
quidation of a business or the sale
of shares of stock or other proper-
ty on which a large capital gain
will be realized. The making of
such gifts at that time can be
achieved at a relatively small
after-tax cost to the donor. There
is a double tax savings resulting
from such gifts.
Special Purpose Fund: The
donor sets up a fund of which the
income from its investments are
designated for specific institu-
tions or areas of interest.
Life Insurance Policy: The En-
dowment Fund of the Jewish
Federation may be named the
beneficiary of a new or existing
life insurance policy. One's annual
premiums may then be deducted
as a charitable contribution.

perty, a legacy.
Devise: Specific gift of real or
personal property made under a
will to a designated beneficiary.
Eadowaeat Fund: A fund

lifetime of the income beneficiary.
