Community Responds to Elie Wiesel's Call for Critical Needs...
$5.8 Million Announced for '88 UJA Drive
After hearing a stirring
address by the noted Jewish
humanitarian, Elie Wiesel,
the distinguished Nobel
Peace Laureate, the men
and women of North
Broward County responded
with heartfelt gifts, bring-
ing the '88 Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal
campaign totals to a record
$5.8 plus million to help
meet the critical needs fac-
ing the tens of thousands of
our Jewish brethren here at
home, in Israel, and 33
other lands.
Wiesel, who mesmerized
the more than 500 dedicated
leaders that attended the
campaign closing event
Thursday, March 10, at the
Soref Jewish Community
Center, Perlman Campus,
6501 W. Sunrise Boulevard,
Plantation, indicated that
"World Jewry is mindful of
the terror that permeates
our Jewish Homeland.
There is within our
brethren a strength that will
not succomb to threats or
violence. For centuries our
people have fought the
hatemongers and
destroyers we stood
together then. We do know
how to stand as one, and we
must put aside our
ideological, political, and
personal differences for all
of our people need us."
In referring to the Soviet
Jewry Rally in Washington,
Wiesel said, "It is now clear
that had there been such a
large demonstration of Jews
and human solidarity of con-
cern in 1942, 1943, and
1944, millions of Jews would
have been saved ... but too
many were silent." Let us
hope that the event that
took place on December 6,
1987, is the event that will
prevent the world from lear-
ning one more horrible
Prior to the event, a
special dinner meeting was
held with Wiesel and more
than 50 Federation leaders
who had pledged individual
gifts of $18,000 or more to

Board, and at the same time
to celebrate the election and
installation of the new Board.

$149,000 Raised at Plantation Pacesetters Event
Plantation couples who attend-
ed the 1988 Federation/UJA
Pacesetters Celebration didn't
want the evening to end, as they
dined and danced the night away
at Regine's in Coconut Grove.
The Plantation dinner dance
was a spectacular success, as
those who attended showed their
heartfelt generosity in celebration
of the 20th anniversary of the
Jewish Federation with a total
contribution of $149,000 to the
1988 campaign.
Jeff Streitfeld, co-chairman of
the Plantation Pacesetters Event,
said, "We had a terrific time for
the benefit of the 1988 Federa-
tion/UJA campaign, as we raised
$20,000 more than last year on
this evening."
Streitfeld added, "We were
joined by some people who had not
come to this event before, in addi-
tion to those loyal couples who
have attended over the years."
Highlights of the evening in-
cluded a toast to Jewish Federa-
tion president Sheldon Polish on
the occasion of his birthday, a tas-
ty wine and cheese party and
Israeli music that was played on
the bus trip down to Coconut
Grove, and a terrific evening of
dancing and partying in a private
room at Regine's.

president, is pleased to announce

Zakharia, 34, was discharged from the Soviet army in 1977. He
never had access to secret information in the army but his
military service was given as the reason for refusal that year of
his application to emigrate. As is the case with most Jews who ap-
ply to leave, Zakharia lost his job, as a sports instructor in a
school. Since then he has had to work at odd jobs to support his
family: wife Mulain and sons Robert, 13, and Ilia, 12. Zakharia's
parents were permitted to emigrate in 1977 but his father died
soon thereafter. His mother, Lara, lives alone in Israel and awaits
reunion with her family.

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
The view* expressed by columnist*, reprinted editorial*, and copy do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Shoe Pebble
Dillard Munford, chairman of Munford, Inc., which owns Majik
Market and World Bazaar and is in the process of being sold, has
unloaded another distorted salvo against one of his favorite
targets, Israel. In a recent issue of the Northside Neighbor, a
weekly newspaper, he has arduously undertaken to compare
Israel and South Africa. In the exercise, history has been forgot-
ten, if not ashamedly unknown or conveniently ignored.
Munford's gripe includes American foreign policy in respect to
Israel, one of his popular subjects that he has attacked on at least
six other occasions in the last several years. He asserts that both
South Africa and Israel are countries that "have minorities ruling
majorities." His reference is to Israeli rule over the Gaza Strip
and the West Bank, which he equates to white rule over blacks.
The fact that these are territories captured in war is unmention-
ed, but twice noted is the Palestinians' lack of suffrage.
While failing to credit the surrounding Arab nations with a
significant role in the plight of the Palestinians, he does point out
Israel's dilemma; Arabs will in 12 years become a majority within
her own borders, and the country needs the protective buffer that
Gaza and the West Bank provide.
Noting that Israel is criticized for "killing teenage rock-
throwing Palestinians," he by-passes any of the root causes for
the strife, makes no mention of Israeli civilians killed by Palesti-
nian terrorists, and suggests that the sanctions passed by Con-
gress against South Africa should be applied to Israel as well.
Jewish Americans also come in for a swipe. They "are
outspoken in opposing South Africa but condone the denial of civil
rights when administered by Israel." On a completely unrelated
subect, which raises eye-brows for its injection, he cites a Senate-
passed bill that would give $8 million to a Jewish school in Paris.
Several months ago Munford did a story on Saudi Arabia, which
begins by declaring that "Saudi Arabia is a loyal friend of the
United States." Its position as a financier of terrorism was ob-
viously irrelevant and unwarranted. After touting the outstan-
ding contributions of the Saudis, he criticizes the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for being the culprit behind
this government's refusal to provide Saudi Arabia with defensive
hardware. The Israeli lobby is described as "awesome."
American foreign aid to Israel comes in for another blow, and
Munford audaciously claims the money "in effect (is) paying for
its (Israel) lobby to change our foreign policy." Citing the amount
of money given to congressional candidates by AIPAC, he sur-
mises, "You can believe that strings are attached to those cam-
paign contributions."
With tongue-in-cheek, he mollifies and assuages that Jewish
organizations cannot be "faulted for taking advantage of a
political system that has grown so responsive to pressure
Nevertheless, he concludes that this works against "good
The Israeli lobby, American Jewry and the state of Israel never
fair very well in Munford's columns. The first article to criticize
any Arab nation or even the PLO has yet to raise its refreshing
head. One wonders how he feels about the gun or cigarette in-
dustry lobby.
Were it not for the scope of his audience and his position, one
would just as soon ignore his slanted diatribes. The sale of his
business might take away the position. His weekly column will
likely endure so Munford will remain a shoe pebble, an irritant
one is only too anxious to dismiss.

Perpetuating the Problem in Gaza/West Bank .
Hope and Dignity Out of Squalor
In 1971, a little noticed United
Nations resolution on Israel's
Gaza Strip was annually adopted.
The resolution states inter alia:
The General Assembly ...
reiterates strongly its demand
that Israel desist from the removal
and resettlement of Palestine
refugees in the Gaza Strip .
This year's vote on the same
resolution was 150 for; two (Israel
and the United States) against;
three (Costa Rica, Liberia, Zaire)
A similar annual resolution on
the West Bank adopted states in-
ter alia:
The General Assembly ..
alarmed by Israel's plans to
remove and resettle the Palestine
refugees on the West Bank and to
destroy their camps .. calls once
again upon Israel to abandon
those plans and to refrain from
any action that leads to the
removal and resettlement of
Palestine refugees in the West
Bank .
On this resolution, the vote was:
145 for; two (Israel and the United
States) against; seven (Costa
Rica, El Salvador, Equatorial
Liberia, Zaire) abstaining.
Is it not ironic that many of
those who preach about the need
to overcome the plight in the
camps have repeatedly lent a hand
to UN resolutions would if im-
plemented, perpetuate the
The truth of the matter is that if
it were not for the special care and
handling of the Arab refugees by
Israel's government, there would
be even greater turmoil and try-
ing conditions.
In answer to critics about the
poor conditions prevailing in the
camps, especially in the Gaza
District, Israel refers to the time
in 1967, when the inhabitants liv-
ing in Judae-Samaria, after 19
years of Arab rule, were found to
be enmeshed in a sea of squalor
and political unrest. A horrible
and sick existence which had been
going on since 1949.
Since 1970, Israel has been
engaged in a consistent effort to
improve the living conditions
there, taking steps to provide pro-
per housing, complete with an in-
frastructure of social and medical
services. Nine residential projects
were built, housing some ten
thousand families who chose to
leave the camps. Each family was
given a plot of land, were able to
customize their structure accor-
ding to needs and preferences.
The new neighborhoods built on
state land within municipal areas
near the camps, were complete
with their own network of elec-
tricity, water sanitation, roads
paved sidewalks, and developed
surroundings containing public
buildings schools, health clinics,
shopping centers, and specially
built mosques.
And today, the policy continues.
A refugee who wishes to leave the
camp is given a plot of land,
chooses his own type of dwelling
and construction plan, receives a
building permit from the
municipal authorities who are
responsible for supervising the
construction, and becomes the full
property owner once the building
is completed, his property being
registered in the Land Register.
Within the limited means and
resources at its disposal, Israel
cannot resolve this most difficult
problem on its own. However, by
initiating and going ahead with
this refugee rehabilitation pro-
gram, Israel seeks to show that a
solution to the problem is feasible.
So the next time you read the
blaring headlines about military
force in the West Bank, or see a
newscast complete with refugees
fleeing for their lives, it was Israel
who brought some order out of
chaos, co-existence out of
segregation, and hope and dignity
out of adject squalor and misery.
UJA Family Supports Our Israeli Brethren...
Major Jewish Organizations Support
Editor's Note: The following statement is
representative of the Conference of Presidents
of Major Jewish Organizations and is endors-
ed by the United Jewish Appeal along with
other major organizations as to the process of
consultation and coordination concerning
current Israeli events.
We have issued this statement to express
the consensus of the major American Jewish
organizations associated with the Conference
of Presidents, whose names appear below.
We believe this statement is essential to an
understanding of the events taking place in
the Israeli administered territories, and to
the position of the American Jewish com-
munity on those events.
1. The security of Israel is a prime concern
to Jews everywhere.
2. In the legitimate efforts to oppose ter-
rorism and violence, Israel has a long history
of restraint. For good reason, the world holds
Israel and Israel holds itself to a high
standard. We regret the loss of life, the
casualties, the destruction of property and
the breakdown of civic order in the territories
following the recent violent disturbances.
3. We have received assurances from the
President and the Prime Minister'of Israel
that the policy of restraint continues. We
have expressed to them our concern regar-
ding any departures in contradiction of this
longstanding policy and practice. We trust
that this policy will be uniformly
4. For decades, the Palestinian Arabs have
been exploited and victimized by the Arab
world. Except for Egypt, the Arab states
have refused to come to the peace table to
negotiate a settlement with Israel. They have
refused to integrate their Arab brethren into
their societies. And they have resisted
Israel's efforts to improve the conditions that
breed today's despair, frustration and hatred.
The PLO continues its policy of terrorism
aimed at destroying Israel.
5. We reiterate our admiration and support
for the people of Israel, for their commitment
to democracy, freedom and Jewish values, for
their courageous efforts to receive and reset-
tle Jews from every corner of the world, and
for the sacrifices they have made and are
prepared to make in the cause of peace. We
believe we speak for the overwhelming ma-
jority of Jews across the country and around
the world in this expression of unity and iden-
tification with the embattled nation of Israel.
We welcome the efforts of the United States
with Israel and others to move the peace pro-
cess forward to a just and lasting peace.

Ava Phillips related, "The only
way we can reach many of those
who have not been previously con-
tacted is by getting on the
telephones, and so we need as
many volunteers as possible to
help reach our 1988 campaign
goal of $7.6 million.
Volunteers will be calling

Rabbi Paul Plotkin, a Jewish

president of the North Broward
Board of Rabbis, related, "We are
proud and honored to be fulfilling
the Mitzvah of bringing others,
especially those who can't be
home with their families on this
special holiday, into the communi-
ty and into our homes."
Steve Lowenkron, a member of
one of the families that will be
hosting the officers from the
Theodore Roosevelt, said, "I
thought that since my father was
often invited to spend the holidays
with different families while he
was in the service during World
War II, it would be nice to
reciprocate the favor by hosting
members of the USS Theodore
Roosevelt while the ship was in
Fort Lauderdale this Passover."

as "Volunteer of the Month" for
Says Hollie Berger, the group's
director, "In this case, 73 adds up
to one .. wonderful group of
senior adults. We're all thrilled
with the honor."
Carrying their tunes throughout
Broward for the past six years,
the JCC Chorale specializes in
Jewish music but also does Broad-
way and "contemporary" in fine
For the past three years, the
Chorale has appeared on TV, in-
vited by Channel 2 to represent
the Jewish community during
Chanukah with their special
presentation of holiday songs.
They have performed for virtually
every major Jewish organization
in the area, for synagogues, in-
stitutions, condominiums, and, at
home, at the JCC, for holiday
celebrations, for the 55 YES club,
WECARE and Federation's
Kosher Nutrition program. And
when they're scripted for special
events, choral member Leigh
Abrams acts as narrator.
They have also given "we want
more" performances every Israel
Independence Day on campus.
The group entertains for love, but
does accept honorariums which go
to help support JCC's Senior
Adult Services programs.
The Chorale has appeared at
Sunrise Theater, Galleria,
Broward, Promenade at Inver-
rary, Lauderdale Lakes and
Lauderhill malls for holiday pro-
grams, either by invitation from
the mall's management or on
behalf of a Jewish organization.
The JCC Jewish Festival
Chorale began life in 1982 when
Berger who had been teaching
music in the Center's Pre-School,
was "discovered" by Laura
Hochman the new head of Senior
Adult Services. Seven attended
the first meeting.
Six of the early joiners are still
with it! Among them, Leona
Weissman who has been secretary
since day one. She takes atten-
dance, keeps records and notifies
members of changes. "We have
developed a warm feeling for each
other, like a family," she says.
Sol Cohen, one of the first
members, had been with a
previously formed JCC singing
ensemble. "It had to break up in
'81 when our director was called
to Israel. We were delighted to
join this new group," he says.
The other "charter members"
include Lou Doris, Estelle Ben-
jamin, Marion Kosut and Miriam
Roberts. They unanimously agree
that the group has achieved a
special harmony working with
Hollie Berger. They say her
warmth, patience, in addition to
her talents, made the group
Berger is "Ms. Music" herself.

For nearly 60 years sitting
down to a breakfast of Lender's

"...set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
(Exodus 33:3)
There is a remarkable story
about a Jewish woman who was
born in 476 BCE (Before the Com-
mon Era). Her name was Mib-
tahiah. In 1901, archaeologists
discovered original scrolls record-
ed throughout her life. These in-
cluded marriage contracts and
divorce documents, records regar-
ding a loan she gave to her father,
and various papers pertaining to
her will. They show clearly the
amount of property she owned
and the care with which it was
legally protected. Mibtahiah mar-
ried three times. In each case,
specific provisions for divorce
were written into the marriage
contracts and were included in
deeds and agreements of
Mib's first two marriages ended

of view utilizing guidelines from
Jewish ethics.
Dr. Stein mentioned that he
recently became a hospice physi-
cian in addition to his regular

Stein says, "I make about a half-
dozen calls every week to ter-
minally ill people, and I try to
make them as comfortable as
possible. It definitely gives one a
different perspective on life and

in either death or divorce. Her
third marriage, however, produc-
ed two sons who eventually in-
herited their mother's estate. Ar-
chaeologists even found lists of
contributors to the Jewish Temple
in her city. These publications
show that she was not an excep-
tion. She was only one of many
women who were financially in-
dependent and made regular con-
tributions to the Jewish communi-
ty in their own names.
Throughout Jewish history
there have been many remarkable
women. Unfortunately much of
their writings, and many of their
individual stories, have been lost
to time. A notable exception was
Beruriah, who lived in the 2nd
century, during the revolt of Bar
Kochba. Her wisdom remains
legendary. One of the very few
women recorded in Talmudic
literature, she is still widely
quoted by contemporary scholars.
Dona Gracia Nasi was a Por-
tuguese Jew who fled to Turkey,
from the Inquisition. Having had
to live as a Marrano (a secret Jew)
for many years, before openly
declaring her Judaism, she never-
theless was able to rescue many
Portuguese Jews. In Constantino-
ple, she supported Jewish life
through her philanthropies which
included hospitals, synagogues,
schools and individual scholar-
ships. Dona Gracia Nasi has the
added distinction of being one of
the few women in Jewish history
who is known by her own name,
not by the surname of husband or
In 1827, Judith Montifiore was
one of only six Jewish women who
visited Palestine. She and her hus-
band, Sir Moses Montifiore,
helped the Jews of the area
became self-sufficient by
establishing farms. Her charitable
reputation prompted both the
Ashkenazi and Sephardic com-
munities to direct a letter to her
appealing for assistance. They
asked for help in building a
hospital and said in part:
"... that we may appeal to you
to make known and publish our
distresses among your numerous
circle of friends among the women
of Judah and Israel in Europe."
Emma Lazarus was born 1849.
Everyone is certainly familiar
with a portion of her poem, 'The
New Colossus' engraved on the
base of the Statue of Liberty. It is
only one small contribution in a
vast selection of excellent work.
She was also seriously committed
to the rescue of Russian Jews
from the pogroms of 1881. and
would probably feel right at home
with our own rescue efforts in
1988. 'Until we are all free,' she
wrote over a century ago, 'none of
us are free.'
The proficiency of Jewish
women can be summarized in a
quotation of Rebekah Kohut, who
was the President of the Council
of Jewish Women, 92 years ago.
At the Council's 1896 convention,
she declared, "The idea existed
that women had inherent in-
capacity for convictions and
cooperation. Women could never
work together, so it was said. It
cannot be said now .. Jewish
women can work together, and
working, can achieve definite
Throughout our history women
have played roles that have been
dynamic and important. Our
foremothers, from Mibtahiah to
Golda Meir ... from Sarah to
Hannah Senesh, have defied the
constant attempt to stereotype
Jewish women. They have faced
the world with fire and passion,
with warmth and pleasure, and
with obvious satisfaction in their
accomplishments. Thousands of
stories attest to the truth of Helen
Reddy's song. "I am woman, I can
do any anything ." In order to
enhance the future, all of us ..
both men and women, should
make every effort to better
understand the full richness of our
Jewish history.

Temple Beth Israel
Temple Beth Israel's plans to
expand its existing facilities to
meet the needs of its growing con-
gregation are moving right along.
The Temple has raised half of its
$2.8 million goal which will enable
the congregation to build a 1300
seat sanctuary, a new chapel,
library, youth lounge, social hall,
and other facilities.
The fund-raising effort, which
began last December, marks the
culmination of three years of
groundwork aimed at having the
synagogue's new facilities ready
for the High Holy Days in the fall
of 1989.
According to George Berman,
the congregation's campaign
director for the expansion, Tem-
ple Beth Israel has virtually
outgrown all of its existing
facilities, as its membership has
grown to over 700 families.

Raoul Wallenberg
For Jews of Budapest, his name

Because he thwarted Nazi camps

This Swedish diplomat, who dared
To get himself involved,
Saved tens of thousands of
Hungarian Jews
With iron bound resolve.
He saw that Jewish lives were
Through courage and good will;
The Protective Passports he
Proved his intrepid skill...
In 1945, the Reds
Invaded Budapest.
The noble Swede has vanished
So now with much unrest,
We ask: Is he a prisoner?
Does he somehow survive?
We pray the search for
