"Our Best for a Joyous Passover. ."
As we celebrate the release of our people from bondage, let
us never forget that Passover is a special holiday. It is a
time not only to commemorate a momentous event in our
history, but to remember our brethren in lands of distress
who cannot live in freedom and dignity.
This Passover, we must also remember our brave brothers
and sisters in Israel, who are feeling the blunt of world opi-
nion, indeed even in some instances from our fellow Jews.
Night after night, television pictures show us Israeli
soldiers chasing Arab youngsters. They tell us about the op-
pression, anger, hopelessness, and futility of the young
Palestinians, almost to the point of justifying their violence.
Then they ask us, "How can we Americans and yes.
World Jewry, live with this?"
We all owe something to Israel, to stand at her side and
identify with her. There are those who do not like this. Let it
be. Every man has a right to their "quirk." Our "quirk" is
loyalty to Israel.
As we gather with our families to celebrate Passover in
571,8, we strengthen the spiritual bonds that hold us together
as a people. Most important, let us, each in his own way, say
a special prayer for our heroic brethren who are leading the
fight in our historia struggle for a free and secure Jewish
By our faith in the Almighty and our universal concerns,
we eloquently proclaim to an apathetic world and to a
criticizing press, that the Jewish people will always serve as
a beacon of light, leading mankind towards a path of peace
and justice.
The Midrash teaches us, "As a torch is not diminished
though it kindles a million candles, so will they not lose who
support a good cause."
Each of us has an important role to play in strengthening
the quality of Jewish life in our own country, in Israel, and
worldwide. Because we are members of the world Jewish
family and part of a tradition that is sensitive and respon-
sive to human needs, we must continuously do all we can to
help our fellow Jews wherever they may'live.
As we read the Haggadah, we must convey beliefs, commit-
ment and enthusiasm to our children.
From the Officers, Board of Directors, Professional and
Support Staff of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, our very best wishes to you and your loved ones
for a joyous Passover.

There lies within every Israeli a special inner strength that has
endured for almost 4,000 years in the Jewish people.
Through biblical times, the second temple period, the Holy
Land and Diaspora, foreign rule, Zionism, the Holocaust and In-
dependence, our Jewish brethren have endured conquest, oppres-
sion, destruction, and persecution, achieved restoration, libera-
tion and have survived.

Elie Wiesel Captivates Audience at
Federation 20th Anniversary Celebration
It was truly a remarkable even-
ing and a sign that the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale has come of age in its
20th year of existence as 450 peo-
ple gathered to hear the moving
words of Elie Wiesel at the Jewish
Federation's 20th anniversary
celebration event held at the
Jewish Community Center on
March 10.
After opening remarks by Bar-
bara K. Wiener, event chairper-
son, Linda Streitfeld, chair of the
Audio-Visual committee came to
the podium and introduced a
special 15-minute video presenta-
tion called "The Light Shines
Bright." The video presentation,
shown on two large screens,
covered the history of the Federa-
tion and the army of agencies that
Federation/UJA dollars
Sheldon Polish, Federation
president told the audience that
"we're involved in the largest
campaign we've ever had," and
added, "I invite you to come and
see the many programs that the
Federation supports and to go on
a Federation mission to Israel."
Then Harold Oshry, 1988
Federation/UJA General chair-
man was called upon to give an up-
date on the campaign to date.
Oshry stated that the Federa-
tion/UJA campaign is currently at
$6 million dollars and emphasized,
"Our goal of $7.6 million is in
sight and we are confident that
the 1988 Federation/UJA cam-
paign will be a huge success."
Following Ludwik Brodzki, the
Federation's first president, an-
niversary chair and a survivor of
the Holocaust, burst into tears as
he was called upon to introduce
Nobel Laureate and fellow
Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.
Elie Wiesel came before the
20th anniversary celebrants and
gave a moving account of the
history of the Jewish people from
World war Ii to the present, mix-
ing humorous anecdotes with
solemn stories of the persecution
that Jews have faced time and
time again.
Wiesel stated, "Because of what
American Jews are doing today,
the present is balancing out the
past thanks to the present we
can live with the horrors of the
Wiesel related that after World
War II, the survivors of the
Holocaust had so many reasons to
be angry, but that they could only
express gratitude for being
The Nobel Laureate then spoke
about his commitment to the
cause of Soviet Jewry, relating
that he makes it a point to try and
do something every day to help
the cause of the refusenlks.
Wiesel said, "There are so many
problems in the world and not
always immediate solutions, but
whatever happens to a Jew
anywhere, we are responsible for
that (person)."
Towards the end of his speech,
Wiesel talked about the problems
that Israel is currently facing in
the West Bank and Gaza, and the
media's coverage of the situation.
"When you read about the
cruelty of the Jews in Gaza and
the West Bank as portrayed to the
world by the press, don't believe
it," said Wiesel. "Israel and the
Jewish people were never obsess-
ed with geography, but with
history and morality .. Israel
didn't want those territories, it
was imposed upon her by the sur-
rounding enemies."
Wiesel added, "Now that the
Palestinian Arabs have our atten-
tion, the time has come to stop
throwing stones .. give us your
words, not your rocks."
Wiesel concluded his talk with
an answer to the question, "What
is the meaning of being a Jew?"
He said, it is solidarity, respon-
sibility, and an irresistable urge to
hope in spite of everything, in
spite of history. For as long as we
are here do we justify hope ...
hope for human beings and hope
for our people."
Barbara Wiener, the event
chairperson, stated, Elie Wiesel
touched my soul, and I think it
was only fitting to begin the next
decade of our Federation's history
with a hero of our time."
Rabbi Paul Plotkin related, "He
(Wiesel) is a marvelous raconteur;
it was a very moving retrospec-
tive of events of the last 20 years
... Wiesel once again showed that

Sheldon Polish, Federation
president, said, "I was very pleas-
ed with this program. Irs been
the most outstanding event I've
been to since my involvement with
the Jewish Federation began 15
years ago. I am looking forward to
the spirit and cohesiveness of our
Federation continuing over the
next 20 years.
Lois Polish added, "The whole
evening was just a wonderful
culmination of 20 years of Federa-
tion work in this community, and
it was exciting to be a part of it."

My Passover Memoirs
The city of Constantine lies in Northeast Algeria, North Africa.
It was named for Constantine the Great who rebuilt it when it was
destroyed in AD 311.
In its developing years it became an important Trading Center
known for its Algerian iron and phosphate mines. Location was
about 225 miles from Algiers, capital of Algeria. A railroad con-
nects it with the seaport of Philippville ...
I remember Constantine as being a most quaint and picturesque
city. Associated with that lovely place are my fond recollections of
a Jewish family, the Hababous, who had moved to their new home
in Constantine from Paris, France. And now, as good Jews in
North Africa, they invited me, an American GI and fellow Jew, in-
to their home.
They did not have too much to share, but nonetheless, their
hospitality was beyond reproach. They dined and wined me with
full heart all in the spirit of coming to the aid of a fellow Jew.
lhey did this particularly during the Passover holiday:
I broke matzah with them at their Seder table, and the ex-
perience stays with me. Their matzah was much different from
ours; thick, and far more unrefined, and much less brittle and tas-
ty. However, I did enjoy it if only for the difference.
I remember that as part of the Seder ceremony, we threw
pieces of matzah and other table items out of the window! This
practice, of course, struck me as being strange and different from
the way we did things back home!
At the time of my visit with the Hababous, I was in a situation
where I had been separated from my regular outfit, and was forc-
ed to be on my own. Therefore, whatever my good Algerian
friends did for me was fully appreciated. But I did have to get
back to my group. When the time came for me to leave, they stuff-
ed my pockets with plenty of their matzah, and I was on my
way .
As in days of yore, like our ancestors who had wandered
through the desert for over 40 years, there I was another
Wandering Jew, laden down with heavy unleavened bread look-
ing for my Promised Land, my outfit...
I couldn't help but feel that Jewish history was repeating itself
. And to this day, whenever the holiday of Passover comes
around, I remember .

As the day's event unfold, we in
the North Broward County
Jewish community have been fac-
ed with some of the worst press in
our 20 year Federation history.
The headlines blare across the
20-area metropolis with an array
of critical and sometimes
senseless attacks on Israel, on
Israelis, and in some cases, even
on World and American Jewry,
because of the solidarity and sym-
pathy for our brethren.
Now the ugly face of anti-
Semitism vandalism has once
again appeared. The question is
that has this been a splinter group
of teenager hoodlums or is this an
organized attack because of the
current Israeli crisis?
It was only in a recent report
from the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith, that anti-Semitic
vandalism was down in Florida
from 79 in 1986 to 64 last year a
19 percent decrease even
though the number of incidents
across the nation climbed
So, it was a sad but realistic
feeling that we all felt on a recent
Sunday evening when the media
told of the trashing and destruc-
tion, some $10,000 worth, of a
synagogue in South Dade. And
then, the arrest of KKK group in
Dallas, and the trial of the neo-
Nazi Skinheads in Miami,
Chicago, Los Angeles, and San
Judaism in
Hong Kong
thodox Judaism achieved a minor
victory in this unlikely venue here
Sunday when rabbis from around
the Pacific region resolved to
subordinate themselves
halachically to the (Orthodox)
Melbourne and Sydney Batei Din
(religious courts).
The rabbis, from such far-off
communities as Singapore and
Tokyo, decided to submit all their
conversions and divorces to these
ecclesiastical courts for halachic
The rabbis, meeting under the
auspices of the Asia Pacific
Jewish Association (APJA),
founded their own rabbinic frater-
nity and said it would be open to
all members agreeing to accept
the Australian Batei Din's
Rabbi Michael Schudrich of
Tokyo, a graduate of the (Conser-
vative) Jewish Tehological
Seminary of America, said: "I
care about my converts. I want
them to be recognized interna-
Rabbis Isaac Ben Zakin of
Singapore, Meir Bensoussan of
Hong Kong, Schudrich and other
regional rabbis present conceded
that by no means were all of their
congregants Orthodox but they
believed that if they as rabbis
were dynamic and caring their
congregants would not interfere
in halachic affiliation.
A number of APJA com-
munities among them Bangkok,
Taiwan, New Caledonia and
Singapore issued a call to
Jewishly knowledgeable students
or graduates in larger com-
munities to come to the region for
six months or a year of service
with the communities, especially
with their youth.
Perhaps as Arthur Teitelbaum,
ADL's Southern Area director,
said, "There is small comfort in
these statistics, despite the
welcome decrease in the number
of reported vandalism this past
year." The truth of the matter is
that there is absolutely no reason
for complacency about any crimes
against Jews.
With this in mind and the fact
that while the majority of
perpetrators remained teenagers,
a fifth of the 78 individuals ar-
rested were 21 years of age or
older, the highest proportion in
that age group ever recorded, the
ADL's Florida office announced
that will seek passage by the
Legislature of a "Bias Crimes
Reporting Act" which would man-
date the collection and analysis of
data regarding criminal activity
motivated by prejudice based
upon religion, race ethnicity, or
sexual orientation.
And now, with the incidents on
the Gaza and the West Bank, we
must bear in mind that there are
other troubling manifestations of
anti-Jewish bigotry, including the
activities and propaganda cam-
paigns of a whole range of
organized hate groups, the
vitriolic denunciations of Israel by
anti-Zionist groups which go far
beyond legitimate debate, and
vestiges of discrimination and
stereotyping still to be found in
the corporate world and other
areas of American life.
So whether it is the
Kristallnacht attacks that took
place in Chicago in November, the
Howard Beach incident in New
York, the cemetery confrontation
in Delray Beach, the obscene pain-
ting of a house in Hollywood, or
the murder of an Israeli
businessman in the Gaza, the
foreboding event in December,
which was the beginning of the
current horrendous unrest, we
must all remember that we are all
a part of these vicious attacks.
Now, more than ever, we must
all turn to each other in our sup-
port. We must stand solidly with
the people of Israel as they seek a
just and lasting resolution of the
conflicts which have for so long
threatened their security, the
stability of the region, and the
peace of the world. And we must
also stand together with our
brethren here at home, and
around the world and show the
terrorist, the ill-willed, the bigot,
and the rest of their clan that the
Jewish people have endured for
thousands of years, through
monarchs and exiles, through op-
pression, and the Holocaust.
As the great Israeli Abba Eban
recently said in his visit to South
Florida, "Our Jewish people will
always survive regardless of the
trials of tribulations."
Glasnost": Good for the Jews?
For Soviet Jews these are truly the best of times and the worst
of times. During the past year all of the Jewish "Prisoners of Con-
science" have been released from Soviet prisons and most of the
prominent Refuseniks, including Ida Nudel, Iosef Begun,
Vladimir Slepak and Alexander Lerner have been permitted to
emigrate. All told, 8,155 Jews were able to leave the USSR in
1987, a substantial increase from recent annual totals and the
highest since 1981. Additionally, there are indications that a more
liberal attitude has been adopted with regard to Jewish obser-
vance within the USSR. Permission was granted for a kosher
restaurant to operate out of the Great Synagogue in Moscow and
a mikveh, a ritual bath house, will be restored to use. Yes, it is
clear that certain conditions have improved under Gorbachev's
policy of "Glasnost."
But has the situation as a whole truly improved? "Improve-
ment" is a relative determination of progress. In the long tunnel
which is Soviet Jewish history, it is easy, given the darkness
created by the oppressive treatment during the past six years, to
be blinded by the illumination provided by these new
developments. But before we pass final judgement, let us also
consider the following:
1. Permitting the release of the Prisoners of Conscience was
merely a correction of previous injustices which should never have
occurred in the first place.
2. There are still over 350,000 Soviet Jews who have expressed
a desire to leave the USSR. Many, repeatedly denied permission
to do so for arbitrary reasons such as "possession of State
secrets," have been re-applying/or over 10 years! Even at the cur-
rent "improved" rate of emigration, it would be over 55 years
before all the refuseniks would be released!
3. There may be many other Soviet Jews who would like to
emigrate but have been frightened off by the very real prospect of
losing their jobs or having their children ostracized in school. Just
how many such Jews there are we may never know now that a lit-
tle publicized new emigration policy requiring relatives abroad
has been enacted, thus making it impossible for many Soviet Jews
to even apply.
Yes, there have been some positive developments. And I ap-
plaud the direction in which the Gorbachev regime is moving. But
there are still objective standards by which we ought to judge the
These include absolute freedom of emigration for those Soviet
Jews who wish to live elsewhere and freedom for those who
choose to remain in the USSR to live as Jews without fear of
Unfortunately, the darkness still prevails ... but there is light
at the end of the tunnel. May our journey through this tunnel be
completed swiftly.

munity challenge Ben set, they indicated that, "Six
months ago, Ben said he would contribute $180,000 to
Hebrew Day School if the community would come for-
ward and match his gift with the same amount.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
and the Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies had
never made an outright allocation of that size before
to any institution, but because of Ben and Lilian, we
were able to obtain an additional $180,000, without
which our new building on the Perlman Campus
would never have been built."
It was a profound moment when the men then an-
nounced that the board of directors had voted to
name the building that now houses over 250 students,
in their name and presented them with a plaque.
In accepting, Ben extended his special thanks for
the grateful honor, to his daughter Ina and to the
friends of Hebrew Day School. He said, "Noting lies
closer to our hearts than Jewish education, particular-
ly in this day of disarray and alienation. Many people
have put their efforts and determination into the
building, but more beautiful than the building itself,
must be what it will house." He then singled out Joel
Reinstein and the board for the honors.
And then a wondrous moment occurred, the room
darkened, 13 candles, including a 14th for mazal,
were lit. Called to the candlelighting were Ben and
Lilian, couples Leo Goodman, Harold Oshry, Joel
Reinstein, Sol Schulman, Gerald William, and Morris
Daughter Ina Ross with her parents Lilian and
Ben Marcus.
It was a heartfelt moment for one of North
Broward's most distinguished couples, Oceanside's
Ben and Lilian Marcus, when their daughter Ina Ross
paid tribute to her parents for their involvement and
devotion on behalf of the David Posnack Hebrew Day
The professional social worker and counselor who
flew in from New York on this special occasion, was
the guest speaker at the Hebrew Day School Annual
Dinner Dance held Sunday, March 6, at the Planta-
tion Holiday Inn. Their good personal friend, Rabbi
Israel Mowshowitz was toe scheduled speaker at the
13th Anniversary Celebration, but was unable to at-
tend due to illness.
In reading from the Rabbi's outline, Mrs. Ross
stated, "... I would like to begin my tribute by
describing Lilian and Ben as the aristocrats of the
Jewish world, they are not just devoted Jews, but
they're intelligent human beings who take pride in
their heritage." In her own words, Ross said that the
Posnack School was the most fitting for her parents
because they have passed the knowledge of that tradi-
tion so deeply on to their children and to their

Marc A. Schwartz and a founding father Joel Reins-

Agencies Sponsor Passover Community Seder
In an effort to ensure that those
members of the community who
have no family or can't afford the
cost of a Seder have a place to go
on Passover, the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Greater Fort
Lauderdale in cooperation with
the North Broward Board of Rab-
bis is sponsoring a Passover Seder
on Saturday evening, April 2, at
the Center, 6501 W. Sunrise
Blvd., Plantation.
Working on this joint effort are
Rabbi Paul Plotkin, Board presi-
dent and Dr. Jim Phillips,
President-elect, JCC.
Laura Hochman, director of
Senior Adult Services at the JCC
and coordinator of this holiday
event, stated, "We at the JCC felt
that there was a need to accom-
modate those people who had no
place to go on Passover, or who
didn't have transportation to get
to a Seder."
The North Broward Board, of
Rabbis is providing a Rabbi to con-
duct the Seder service and
everything served during the
Seder will be Kosher.
The Soref JCC has reached out
to various agencies in the com-
munity to invite people to the
Seder, including Jewish Family
Service clients, members of the
Jewish Association for the Deaf,
participants in the Kosher Nutri-
tion program, and members of the
Gathering Place.
Hochman related that with the
outreach effort, over 200 people
from the Greater Fort Lauderdale
area will be attending this Seder.
Members of the Jewish Communi-
ty Center's Board of Directors
and other generous community
members have underwritten the
cost of this Seder so that it wil be
very minimal for those who are
attending. ,
Rabbi Kurt Stone, a Jewish
Federation board member and a
member of the North Broward
Board of Rabbis, stated, "I am
very pleased to be participating in
this joint effort with the JCC; it
shows the" maturity of this com-
munity to be able to share in put-
ting together an event like this."
Rabbi Stone added, "Passover
is a very warm and family
oriented time on the Jewish calen-
dar, and I am pleased that we can
provide this opportunity for those
who otherwise wouldn't be able to
attend a Seder."

and Judy Henry, who represented the Community Relations
Committee of the Fort Lauderdale Jewish Federation.
Shlomo Avineri, Political
Science professor at the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem, sug-
gested that Israel must now make
a decision regarding the disposi-
tion of the administered ter-
ritories in order to quell the riots
in the West Bank and Gaza.
Avineri made his comments at a
lecture held recently at Temple
Kol Ami in Plantation that was
sponsored by the Community
Relations Committees of the Fort
Lauderdale and South Broward
Jewish Federations.
Avineri stated, "Since 1967,
when Israel took control of the
West Bank and Gaza, Israel has
been debating what to do with this
territory, and how to structure
our relationship with the popula-
tion there."
The Political Science professor
related that though there is a
security issue at stake regarding
who controls the territories, the
debate is more complex than that.
Avineri related, "By calling the
West Bank and Gaza "Judea and
Samaria," one doesn't necessarily
enhance the security of Israel, one
makes a very important claim ...
that we have a right to settle
everywhere in those two areas."
There are presently two main

the guest speaker at the next CRC
meeting to be held at the Jewish

day, March 29, at 7:30 p.m.
Mr. Pelavin is a past president
of the Jewish Federation of Flint,
Michigan. He is a member of the

Ms. Wiener noted, "Mr. Pelavin
is truly one of our national Jewish
leaders who has met with high
government officials both in Israel
and in the United States, and we
are indeed fortunate to have him
speak at our next meeting."
Mr. Pelavin will address the

The Likud Party's "territorial
school" policy argues that when
Israel has to negotiate the status
of its borders, the most important
consideration is to maintain con-
trol over as much territory as
possible of the historical land of
Israel. Avineri noted, "But that
school is very well aware that if
the 1.26 million Palestinians are
integrated into the body politic of
Israel, then the nature of Israel as
a Jewish state will be changed,
and therefore, the Likud is trying
to come up with a formula that

control over that territory but also

for this has been the Autonomy
Plan suggested by former Prime
Minister Begin at Camp David."
The Labor Party or
"Sociological School' of thinking
does not deny that Israel has a
historical link to Judea and
Samaria, but this school argues
that when Israel has to decide its
borders, in order to remain a
Jewish state and not thwart the
cause of Zionism, the most impor-
tant consideration for Israel is not
necessarity to retain more ter-
ritory, but to retain the
Jewishness of the state. "The
paradox is that the more territory
you take, because of the people
who live in that territory, the less
Israel remains Jewish," said
Avineri. "If Israel continues to
control the West Bank and Gaza,
we will end up with a country that
is 60 percent Jewish and 40 per-
cent Arab."
Avineri continued, "If on the
other hand, you end up with a
smaller country that is more or
less within the borders of 1967 but
with the addition of Jerusalem
and a few other areas, we will end
up with a state that is 85 percent
Jewish and only 15 percent
The problem, according to
Avineri, is not terrorism but that
the Palestinian Arabs will no
longer accept Israeli rule in the
two areas.
Mr. Avineri concluded, "There
is no choice but for Israel to make
up her mind, one way or another

A Capitol Idea: Project Mosaic

Senator Lawton Chiles has in-
vited members of "Project
Mosaic" to display an exhibit of
early Dade County Jewish history
in the Senate Rotunda during the
last week in May.
The collection of Dade County
Jewish History photos that will go
to Washington, D.C. in May is an
exhibit of photos depicting Jewish
life from 1896-1946.
Dr. Abraham Gittelson,
associate director of the Central
Agency for Jewish Education, and
one of the four main members of
the Mosaic Project Team, stated,
"This project means recognition
of the history of the Jewish com-
munity of Florida, and serves as
an example of how an ethnic
group has brought a special flavor
and uniqueness to Florida life.
The exhibit that will go to
Washington will bring to the at-
tention of the entire country how
the process of acculturation and
retention of ethnic identity has
taken place in South Florida."
Most people don't realize that
Jewish history in Florida dates
back to pre-Revolutionary War
times, when Jews established
businesses in Pensacola.

awareness of their Florida
history, a research group compos-
ed of members of the Central
Agency for Jewish Education,
The Jewish Community Center of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, and the
Judaic studies program of the
University of Miami have been
putting together a traveling ex-
hibit entitled, "An American
Jewish Mosaic: Jewish Life in
Mosaic is scheduled to go on
tour to major cities throughout
Florida from 1990-92. Through
the four major themes in the ex-
hibit, it is hoped that the rich and
varied threads of Jewish life and
its contributions to the tapestry of
Florida will be realistically por-
trayed. A variety of media will be
utilized in the exhibit, including
photographs, slides, audio and
visual tapes, archival records,
films, artifacts, books, and Jewish
ceremonial objects.
Four thematic areas have been
identified to emphasize the
natural evolution of life and
Jewish culture. Immigration
speaks to who arrived and when;
Family and Synagogue Institu-
tions address the rhythm of the
life cycle, holiday cycle, Jewish
education, religion and communal
organizations; Community Rela-

the Jewish community in Florida
with the non-Jewish sectors of the
population; and Contributions to

stood out in the arts, medicine,
and the sciences.

"...set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
(Exodus 33:3)
Israel's chairman of the Com-
mittee on Foreign Relations and
Defense, Abba Eban, addressed to
our community on Feb. 24. Oxford
educated, Mr. Eban speaks and
writes with a special flare given to
very few. Nevertheless, his
beautiful phraseology and elo-
quent diction could not mask a
very serious problem.
Addressing the problem of
"Israel's destiny as a state and as
a society" called for continued
cooperation and continued
understanding from the American
Jewish community. He said, "I
come from Jerusalem to tell you
our burdens are heavy. We cannot
bear them alone. Why should we
bear them alone? After all,
whatever we have built and con-
structed and defended in Israel, in
these 40 years, we have con-
structed and defended .. you
and we, together ... in the ser-
vice of common responsibility and
common pride. And so the people
of Israel looks at the face of its
sons, looks at the havoc of war,
and asks itself if American Jewry
will help us to bear our burden,
that is the question that Israel
asks of you. The answer is in your
hands. Don't abandon us in the
middle of the road. Stand with us.
Constant of purpose. Steadfast in
resolve until the obstacles are
Those obstacles, as stated by
Mr. Eban and others, are the
time-bomb presently exploding in
the West Bank and Gaza and the
continuing necessity for an Israeli
presence in those areas. He
characterized the Palestinians as
a "foreign population not linked
to Israel by any flag, tongue, or
faith or by any common
allegiance. Because our rule over
them is unpleasant for them does
not mean it is tolerable for us. It is
difficult to decide upon whom it
weighs with the most weight, that
is a hopeful sign. There should be
a mutual self-interest in changing
the situation. The hour is right for
A.M. Rosenthal, in a New York
Times editorial on Feb. 28, wrote,
"Some critics act as if it were
Israeli occupation of the West
Bank and Gaza in 1967 that led to
so many years of unrest and skir-
mishing there. This is an historic
distortion. It was the Arab coun-
tries that seized Gaza and the
West Bank, which were to be a
part of the Palestinian state under
the 1947 UN partition plan, and
occupied them for 20 years not
in peace but with constant harass-
ment and attack against Israel.
Finally Israel struck back. Her
unhappy occupation of the West
Bank is a result, not the cause, of
the aggression Arab
Abba Eban alerts us to a further
complication when he says, "We
cannot just walk out and leave a
vacuum and not care what hap-
pens in the vacuum. Therefore we
must concert our action with some
kind of Palestinian representa-
tion, in order to achieve a dif-
ferent distribution of functions
. .. which will reconcile our
security with their freedom. Our
security is our highest aspiration
... it is the central theme ..."
Mr. Rosenthal asks, "Which
Arab states have promised to
negotiate with Israel? None.
Which Arab leaders are criticizing
Palestinians sworn to the elimina-
tion of Israel? Where are the
'moderates' Palestinians who can
swerve the vounsr men of Gaxa
and the West bank away from
seeking Israel's death?"
Cynthia Ozick, in an editorial
one day after Mr. Rosenthal and
Mr. Eban, (N.Y. TIMES 2/29/88)
makes an interesting point. She
wrote, 'A stone is a jewel,' Yasir
Arafat said about the rioting of
Palestinians youths in Gaza."
Bruria a sage of the Talmud and a
mother had a different understan-
ding: 'Our children are our
jewels,' she said. These children
are armed with stones not
because of the occupation which
the PLO refused to end under
Camp David but because the
PLO will commander everything
in its power, from slingshots to
Katyushas to terror to world
politicking ... in order to under-
mine the absolute necessity for
the State of Israel. But the Jewish
people's national self-
determination has been achieved
and may not be called into ques-
tion. Let them come forward
those Palestinian Arabs who want
to raise up children, not stones;
who know that children, not
stones, are jewels." Is the
ultimate choice to be our jewels or

the American and the Jewish com-

study plus their excellence in
scientific studies.
Ken Block explained that he
completed his project last summer
"so that I could continue at the
Judaica High School." Ken's
studies in courses on Jewish
history are most important to
him. Andrew Levy added that in
order to concentrate on his pro-
ject he completed it on days other
than JHS. "I didn't want to give
up JHS," said Levy. Levy's pro-
ject concentrated on detecting
AZT in minute quantities in an ar-
tificial system. Eventually, this
detection system can be applied to
the human body. Levy's research
has been heralded as an important
detection. Sharon S. Horowitz,

liana Lsvi January Volunteer
Of The Month
With just the right timing, JCC
Staff names a beautiful young
Israeli, in the States just six mon-
ths, the Center's Volunteer of the
Month for January '88.
Honored for her outstanding
creativilty, liana Lavi and her
family arrived here from Hadera,
Israel, in September. Looking to
identify herself with a Jewish
"institution" she was introduced
to the JCC and immediately
volunteered to make a giant size
Menorah for a Hanukkah decora-
tion and to subsequently accept a
"commission" to decorate the
Harry Levin gym for Super-
Sunday weekend January 23 and
24. Her accomplishment:
Transforming the gym into a
lavish and lovely Israeli Cafe for
her country's star performer Yaf-
fa Yarkoni. It took her more than
a month and many hours each day
to fashion a handsome blue and
white frame, 10' by 20' for the
stage-in addition to outsize stars
and symbols made out of a crafts
paper material, crushable and col-
orful. Her Israeli background also
provided a most appropriate set-
ting for the Cantors' Concert the
next day.
Her interior designing has been
so dramatic, original and
generated so much comment that
Lavi has again been "commission-
ed" by an appreciative committee
to do more of the same for "Israel
40," the major festival to take
place on the JCC Campus Sunday,
April 17. She is already at work.
Lavi has been a craftsperson
ever since she was a child growing
up in Eilat. She always had ideas,
she admits, and the courage and

'What I am most proud of," she
says, "Is the house I designed and
built in Hadera."
She showed photos of the house
which was also decorated out-
doors with a lush semi-tropical
garden her doing also. And in ad-
dition to her artistry with crafts,
including all kinds of fabric,
plastics and leather, she ran her
own business, producing and sell-
ing honey, the product of a
beehive she owned and cared for
in Hadera.
The Lavi family consists of li-
ana's husband Pesach, daughter
Maya, 13, son Zachi, 10 and son
Yoni, 3. Now Tamarac residents,
the family likes America and are
enjoying American activities such
as roller skating and jazz dancing.
Says Lavi, "I want to thank
everyone who has helped us make
a fresh start in Florida. I will free-
ly volunteer my time whenever
they need me."
Pesach Lavi is considered a
gifted mechanic and came here
with his family along with the
encouragement of his Israeli
friends who had settled here some
years ago. He has joined them in
an automobile service business
specializing in radiators.

Creating A Legacy
For the 21st Century
Jacob Brodzki, Chairman
h 25, 1388 -
Jews Now Believe the Pollards
Suffered Injustice,' Family Says
How To Leave A
Legacy For Tomorrow
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
non-charitable beneficiary.
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 Food: 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
Glossary Of Terms
In order to educate our readers
about endowment and legacy
development, we will define
several terms.
Bequeat: A gift by will of pro-
perty, a legacy.
Devise: Specific gift of real or
personal property made under a
will to a designated beneficiary.
EadowMent Fund: A fund
established by an individual
donor, family or foundation, con-
sisting of gifts that provide a
source of income for the future.
Estate Tax: The tax imposed by
the Federal or state governments
on the assets of a decedent.
Personal Representative: A
person named by the decedent in
his or her will whose function it is
to carry out the provisions of the
Probate: The legal proceeding
involved in validating a will and
administering an estate.
Trust: An arrangement where a
trustee holds and distributes pro-
perty for the benefit of named or
described individuals or charities
according to the instructions of
the grantor or testator.
Pooled Income Fond: A trust
created and administered by a
public charity. The contributor
receives income during his
lifetime. The charity receives the
remainder principal after the
lifetime of the income beneficiary.

opinion in both Israel and the
American Jewish community has
been shifting in support of
Jonathan Pollard and his wife,
Anne Henderson Pollard, who are
in jail for spying for Israel,
members of the couple's family
said recently.
Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S.
Navy intelligence analyst, is serv-
ing a life rm for passing
classified documents to a
renegade Israeli espionage team,
while his wife is serving a five-
year prison sentence for being an
accessory to her husband's

Pollard, the fathers of the two
convicts, claimed that in recent
months there has been a "tur-

Jewish leader who now realize
that "injustice was done to the
couple. They declined, however to
name any of the Jewish leaders
who had changed their position.
According to Carol Pollard,
Jonathan's sister, hundreds of let- digestive djsorders.
ters are sent every month from
Israel to her brother and sister-in-
law. But prison authorities will
not deliver the letters, she
She announced that she and
David Turner, director for the Na-
tional Coalition for the Justice for
the Pollards, are leaving for Israel
this week for a three-week visit
"to meet with the Israeli public
and Israeli officials" to discuss the
Pollard affair.
Asked to name the officials they
are going to meet in Israel, and
whether they requested a meeting
with Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, Turner said: "We still
don't know with whom we will
meet. We will see anyone who is
willing to see us."
Morris Pollard said that his son,
who is jailed in federal peniten-
tiary in Springfield, Mo., was
transferred recently to a hospital
room after being held against his
will in the psychiatric ward of the
prison for the last 10 months.
The father said he does not
know why he was transferred to a
hospital room, where he is in a
solitary confinement, as he has
been since his arrest two and a
half years ago.
Bernard Henderson charged
that his daughter is still denied
proper medical care. She claims to
She is very weak and hunched
over with pain most of the time,"
Henderson said, claiming that she
is denied medicine and she has
recently developed "internal
bleeding." Asked if there is a
danger to her life, he replied in the
Henderson noted that a federal
district court judge on Dec. 6 re-
jected his daughter's request ot be
treated by her family doctors. He
said that his daughter asked if she
could be treated by an Israeli doc-
tor, but "this cannot be done, ac-
cording to the prison rules, since
she is not an Israeli citizen."
Anne Henderson Pollard is ser-
ving her prison term in a federal
prison in Lexington, Ky.
The National Coalition for
Justice for the Pollards demands
the immediate release from prison
of Anne Pollard, who the groups
says 'is being held in jail on
charges and under conditions
previously expected only from
Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia
during the Stalin purges."
The group also is seeking "the
immediate reduction of Jonathan
Pollard's prison sentence to time
served, "bringing it into conformi-
ty with the norms of punishment
typically imposed in espionage
cases involving an ally, or other
non-Communist state." ______

^rammed full of exciting times,
t-rendering experiences, in-
native reports, the North
oward County missionites went
pm the hills of Jerusalem, the
pital of Israel, to Beereheba, the
pital of the Negev; from Kib-
tz Yad Mordechai to the for-
B88 of Maasada. They met with
people, the politician, the
Ithor, and the archeologist. At a
pie when Israel was faced with
le unyielding crisis of turmoil on
the West Bank and the Gaza
Strip, they heard from the "Gush
Emunim" and "Peace Now"
movements. They listened to Rus-
sian refuseniks tell of their
plights, and of the love to be a part
of Israel's brave people. They saw
the young and old at Project
Renewal's Kfar Saba, the twinn-
ing of our people.
At Yad Vachem, the Museum of
the Holocaust, Beit Hatefutzot,
the Museum of the Diaspora, they
traced the history of their people,
in some instances, happy, won-
drous accounts, and in others, hor-
rendous, infamous times.
They walked among the stones
of their ancestors and the stone-
bedecked graves of the brave
young soldiers.
From the Western Wall to the
Oldest Synagogue, they learned
more and more each day about the
heritage of their people, and the
determination of their brethren
and the courage of their brothers
and sisters.
And when the Mission end came
to pass, and while on the return
flight home, they reflected on
what they saw, where they had
been, and their innermost
"... I was raised with very lit-
tle Jewish identity and so when I
encountered some young
Australian students who had
made Aliyah, committed to living
a total Jewish life, I realized how
Israel needs us, not only financial-
ly, but spiritually" Jesse
"... Israel wasn't the most im-
portant thing in my life that is
until now. This Mission has been
moving and now I realize that
Israel is important for my ex-
istence and we need each other."
Steve Fayne.
"... I was struck by the wonder
of Massada, where thousands of
years of our Jewish Heritage un-
folded. Although some of my fami-
ly ancestors perished in the
Holocaust, I never really knew
much about my Jewish heritage,
and now I am learning." Carey
"... This Mission has brought
about a reaffirmation of my
solidarity with our brothers in
Israel and further recognition of
the marvelous services our efforts
in their behalf provide. It was also
very moving to witness the
reawakening and emerging of the
Jewish pride in some of the other
members of this group."
Donald Fischer.
"... The idea of having a tradi-
tional Shabbat Dinner overlooking
i Jie Western Wall in the same way
uhat our brethren had 2,000 years
;igo is oneness with the past, pre-
sent and future an enlightening
experience I will never forget."
Bernie Friedman.
".. Although this is my fifth
trip to Israel, this is the first time
that helped me to place Israel in
an historical context. I found the
experience of seeing Massada and
the Old City complete with the
Western Wall amazing. It makes
me want to pursue Torah and
Talmid even more." Tom Katz.
"... For me it was a time of
pain and sadness when I saw the
names of the million children who
perished in the Holocaust at Yad
Vachem. Although my father was
liberated at Auschwitz and I
learned about King David in
Hebrew School, I never really
knew about Judaism." Joel
"... I have been to Israel on
many occasions, but this was in-
deed a special time for me. I have
watched and listened with great
desire as the men of my group
observed the real treasures of our
people. They learned that we all
can make a difference." Paul
"... The highlight of my Israel
experience was my overall
understanding of my Jewish iden-
tity through both the historical
and religious perspectives. It
makes me proud to be a Jew and I
will support the Jewish people,
community and Israel in my own
special way." Alan M. Levy.
"... I have always focused my
attention on local community.
Since my time in Israel, I see the

strength and pride of my
brethren. It was particularly
heartfelt when I said Kaddish for
my uncle at the Wailing Wall."
Dr. Jim Phillips.
"... The smiling faces of the
children at the Federation Project
Renewal city of Kfar Saba, filled
me with a warm, caring feeling
for my little brothers and sisters. I
know now that both Israel, as well
as our local needs, must continue
to exist." Martin Press.
"... From the zealots at
Massada, who gave up their lives
rather than give up their Judaism
under Roman rule, to the
refuseniks like Yuli Edelstein,
who spent time in a labor camp
rather than give up his religion.
This plus the burial site of Ben-
Gurion at Sde Boker helped make
my trip to Israel a remarkable
one." Scott Rassler.
Both Federation professionals
accompanying the group, who had
been to Israel on a number of oc-
casions, were heard to remark on
the total commitment and
solidarity of this mission group.
"There has been a real
camaraderie among the men, one
that we hope will go long and far
in our desire to raise our critical
life-saving, life-giving dollars,"

said Alan Margolies.
Even this writer was touched by
the feelings, concern, and emotion
of the young leaders, who 'man-
for-man' have all vowed to become
more involved, more committed
and more determined to spread
the urgency of supporting Federa-
tion/UJA. And this wasn't just lip
service, for after the group's final
caucus, a record-breaking total of
'88 gifts were announced.
And as the group departed on
the last leg of their journey of
seven thousand miles, back home
one could hear 14 voices exclaim
in unison, "Next Year in

Over 80 federations have had
community and special group mis-
sions to Israel last year. While the
itineraries varied depending on
the nature of the constituency,
mission participants have taken
part in a wide variety of activities.
They include: welcoming the Sab-
bath in Jerusalem, visiting the
homes of Israelis from all walks of
life, spending an afternoon with
kibbutz families, greeting recent
Ethiopian immigrants at a Jewish
Agency absorption center sup-
ported by the UJA/Federation
Campaign, chatting with soldiers
at an army base, picking tomatoes
on a southern moshav and
meeting Project Renewal
residents who explained how
Renewal improved their lives.
UJA Missions allow contributors
who have been personally involv-
ed in the Campaign to see with
their own eyes what their support
has accomplished.
In addition to federation and
community missions, there were
also UJA National Missions
geared to specialized constituen-
cies where participants came from
all the regions of the U.S. These
included Allocations, Gesher, Rab-
binic Cabinet, Singles, Women's
Division, Young Leadership,
Family, Study and Student Mis-
sions. Moreover, the past year's
Major Gifts Missions included the
Prune Minister's Mission and the
three Israel 40th Anniversary
Mr. Aaron said that the UJA
should be proud of the role it plays
in promoting tourism to Israel.
"However, our trips go beyond
the usual tourist map," said
Aaron, "so that donors can see
what their gifts have achieved.
Meeting the people who have
shaped Israel's history and
meeting the Israeli family create
exciting experiences that will
always be treasured."
The UJA plans to take over
6,000 people to Israel in 1988 as
part of the continuing 40th An-
niversary celebrations and UJA's
upcoming 50th Anniversary
events. Some of these missions of-
fer optional pre-miasions, design-
ed to set an historic and cultural
context for the visit to Israel.
Czechoslovakia, Romania, Poland,
Hungary and Morocco are among
the destinations available on the
pre-mission programs.
In addition to being an unmatch-
ed educational and enjoyable
travel experience, a UJA Mission
has proven to be the most effec-
tive campaign and leadership
development instrument available
to communities.

Passover The Festival of Freedom
1, Wht Does Seder ~
Hebrew word "seder" means "order" and refers to the
ious service and festive meal observed in Jewish households
,'esach. Seder derives from the same root as the Hebrew word
ddur" (prayer book). Just as the siddur contains the order of
er8 for daily, Shabbat, and festival services, so is the seder a
cribed order of prayers, readings, symbolic explanations, and
kngs related to Pesach. The Pesach seder is the only ritual meal
i the Jewish calendar year for which such an order is prescribed,
lance its name.
12 Does the Seder hare biblical origins?
Yes. The seder has a number of scriptural bases. A section in
kodus (12:3-11) describes the meal of lamb, unleavened bread,
I bitter herbs which the Israelites ate just prior to the Exodus.
j addition, three separate passages in Exodus (12:26-27, 13:4,
j-8) and one in Deuteronomy (6:20-21) enunciate the duty of
ents to tell the story of the Exodus to their children. We also
..- that a special meal was connected with the paschal offering
jrhich Jews of ancient times brought to the Temple in Jerusalem
i Pesach.
The meal, the symbols, and the retelling of the Exodus account
Eventually became basic elements of the seder as we know it
3. When did the Seder aa celebrated in modern times begin
i take shape?
Around the year 70 C.E. when the Temple in Jerusalem was
stroyed by the Romans, with the priestly paschal sacrifice and
al no longer possible, and with the Jewish community in exile
J in ritual upheaval, a,new religious service, the seder, emerg-
J| as a means of preserving historical memory and the symbol of
lancient traditions. The Mishnah (Pesachim 10) describes a seder
Iwith many of the elements found in our contemporary ritual. The
[Kiddush, Four Questions Exodus Story, symbolic interpretations,
IHallel Psalms, and other prayers are all mentioned as part of the
Iseder celebration of 1,900 years ago.
4. When do we hold Seder?
The seder is held on the eve of the 14th day of Nisan in the
I Hebrew calendar, which may fall in March or April of the secular
I year. Reform Jews and Jews in Israel usually hold only one seder.
I Traditional Jews outside of Israel usually hold seders on each of
| the first two nights of Pesach.
5. Where should the Seder be held?
It is customary to conduct the first seder in the home with the
I family, relatives, and friends. In recent years, many congrega-
tions have begun to hold community seders at the temple on the
[ second night of Pesach for the entire congregation. There is,
however, no rigidly prescribed location for the seder.
May we hold more than two Seders?
Yes. There is no maximum. As a result, congregations, Jewish
organizations, and interfaith groups often conduct seders on
other nights of the festival. These seders serve as an additional
source of inspiration, Jewish learning, and Jewish understanding
for participants.
The order of the seder is contained in a special book called the
As the time for the seder approaches, after the house has been
cleaned and the chametz removed, be sure that your seder table
includes the following:
1. A Haggadah for each participant
2. Festival candles and candlesticks
3. A Kiddush cop and wine for the festival Kiddush
In addition, every participant should have his or her own wine
glass. We drink four cups of wine during the seder service as a
remembrance of the four promises which the Torah tells us Gd
made to our people in Egypt: "I will bring you out"; "I will deliver
you"; "I will redeem you"; "I will take you to me for a people."
(Exodus 6:6-7) Many Jews add a fifth cup of wine, calling to mind
the plight of Soviet and Syrian Jews and/or our commitment to
Seder for Pesach
the State of Israel.
4. Elijah's cut
Jews consider Elijah to be a symbol of a potential Messianic
Age. We thus set aside a special cup as an expression of our hope
and confidence in the ultimate betterment of society.
5. Three whole matzot
Three whole matzot should be set before the leader of the seder.
Jewish custom has been that these matzot are contained in a
special three-section matzah cover.
Why three? The top and bottom matzot correspond to the two
chalot which tradition ordains for Shabbat, an extra portion for a
special day. The third piece represents the matzah which Jewish
law specifically ordains for Pesach. This third, or middle matzah
also serves as the afikoman, or dessert, which is hidden away as
the object of a search by children at the seder. Over the centuries,
the three matzot have acquired special symbolic associations.
Some say they represent the three patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac,
and Jacob. Others associate the matzot with the three categories
of Jews in ancient times, Cohen, Levite, and Israelite.
6. The seder plate
The seder plate, also placed before the leader, contains the
various symbolic foods referred to in the seder itself.
A. A roasted shankbone symbolic of the paschal offering
brought to the Temple in Jerusalem in ancient times. Many Jews
also see the shankbone as a symbol of G-d's "outstretched arm,"
helping the Jewish people in time of trouble. It is of interest to
note that the Samaritans and Falashas in the Middle East and
Africa, even today, sacrifice a lamb on Pesach.
B. Maror or bitter herbs usually a horseradish root or ro-
maine lettuce, symbolic of the bitterness our ancestors experienc-
ed as slaves in Egypt.
C. Karpaa a vegetable, usually parsley, symbolic of spring
and its spirit of hope, as well as the Jews' undying faith in the

cope with the choices that are
available to them today.

of fire prevention and detection.

tuce or celery instead of parsley.
D. A roasted egg which traditionally symbolizes the continu-
ing cycle of life. It also reminds us of the special festival offering
brought to the Temple in Jerusalem in ancient times. In addition,
there are those who see the egg as a symbol of the Jewish people's
will to survive. Just as an egg becomes harder the longer it cooks,
so the Jewish people have emerged from the crucible of persecu-
tion as a strong and living people.

With Rhyme
and Reason
Clean Hands,
Pure Heart
A blessing from the Lord awaits
The one without stained hands,
The one whose heart allows no
But does what He commands.
His countenance will shine upon
The one that tells no lies,
But speaks the truth from out his
Beyond all compromise.
The one that walks uprightly and
The one that is not vile,
Who loves his neighbor as himself
With heart that bears no guile,
The one whose hands are raised in
And seeks to go His way,
The one that tries to learn His
Throughout his earthly stay .. .
So who shall know His holy place,
And dwell upon His hill?
He that has clean hands, pure
He that does His will.
