Israel Anniversary "40" at JCC April 17
Community Solidarity Event
>??
.????????????
Everyone in the Greater
Fort Lauderdale area can help
salute the State of Israel and
its accomplishments over the
past 40 years by joining in a
solidarity march for Israel on
Sunday, April 17.
The march, which will be the
prelude to a whole day of
Celebration at the Jewish
Community Center of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, is being co-
sponsored by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, the Soref Jewish
Community Center Perlman
Family Campus, and the North
Broward Board of Rabbis.
Ivy and Larry Levine, Israel
Forty chairpersons, related,

ticipation of every synagogue,
Jewish organization, religious
school, and all members of the
community to come out and
show their solidarity and unity
in support of Israel."
Participants in the march
will assemble at 8:45 a.m. at
Fifth Street Park in Planta-
tion, which is across from the
Post Office. The 1.3 mile
march will begin at 9:30 a.m.

opening ceremonies. Ample
parking at Park and at JCC.

Stacey Garber, who is coor-
dinating this year's march,
stated, "The goal is to create
the largest mobilization of
North Broward Jewry in
tribute to Israel and all it has
become over the past 40
years."
Every participating group or
organization is encouraged to
represent itself with a banner
displaying its name. Each par-
ticipant should also wear as
much blue and white as possi-
ble to show his/her In-
dependence Day spirit.

World News
BRUSSELS A three-
day dialogue between
Israelis and Palestinians
ended here recently with
the participants in general
agreement over the need for
an international conference
to facilitate peace negotia-
tions in the Middle East.
The role of the Palestinian
Liberation Organization in
such a conference remains
problematic, however.
BRUSSELS A storm
of protest has been raised
over the broadcast of a
three-part television series
about Belgium's most
notorious Nazi Collaborator,
Leon Degrelle, who is still a
neo-Nazi activist. The televi-
sion station that aired the
series claimed the broadcast
has historical merit and
Degrelle be allowed to ex-
press his views. ___
The art show called "Jewish
Artists at their Best will open
at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 16,
the night before the Soref
Jewish Community Center's
"Israel 40" celebration on its
Perlman Family Campus, 6501
W. Sunrise Blvd., Plantation.
The DU-DA-IM, a popular
Israeli duo is also scheduled to
perform in concert at the
Center the same evenning at
9:30 p.m.
The Art Show will be co-
sponsored by JCC Adult
Cultural Arts Dept. and the
University West Chapter of
Women's American ORT.
Among the artists represented
are works of art in various
media, paintings and sculpture
The world famous Senary,
Amen, Goodkin and Ebgi will
have works on display along
Li
The Art of Senary
with other internationally ac-
claimed artists. In addition,
many additional rising
painters and sculptors in the
area will be showing. There
will be notable works for sale
in every price range and the
evening opening will feature a
wine reception. Admission is
$5 per person.
The DU-DA-IM -
Gurion and Amdoursky
Israel Gurion And
Benny Amdoursky
Celebrating their 30th year
together, the Du-DA-IM are
recognized internationally for
representing Israel's values
and history through their
music.
Included into their extensive
repertoire are songs that the
Jews brought with them from
many lands which the DU-
DA-IM has succeeded in incor-
porating into the heart and
culture of Israel.
From their classic Erev Shel
Shoshanim to B'terech El
Haor, they walk us through 30
years of Israeli song.
While musical tastes change
and different cultural expres-
sions evolve, the DU-DA-IM
have remained a dynamic and
contemporary sound of Israel.
Who best to join Greater
Fort Lauderdale's Israel 40
celebration than this team of
two who have played a part in
Israel's growth and
maturation?
Tickets to the concert are
$18 which includes admission
to the art show and its gala
wine reception.

UNITED NATIONS -
After months of delay, the
U.S. Justice Department
has ordered the closing of
the PLO's observer mission
to the United Nations in
New York by March 21. The
practical effect of the
closure appears to be
limited, however, as the
order will not deny the PLO
"special observer" status at
the UN, nor will it prevent
PLO representatives from
operating.
Building a Kibbutz
Members of the Teen program
at the Soref Jewish Community
Center, Perlman Family Campus,
together with Young Judea, a
Zionist Youth group, will build a
"Tower and Stockade" Kibbutz
on the Center's campus, 6501 W.
Sunrise Blvd., Plantation, Satur-
day night, April 9.
In recognition of the hardships
endured before Israel gained its
independence in 1948, an
estimated number of 40 boys and
girls of high school age will
endeavor to simulate the condi-
tions that prevailed during those
years. The building will begin at
sundown and will continue until it
is completed before morning. The
structures will include a stockade
fence, a guard tower and a bunker
complete with sand bags, "to pro-
tect against enemy fire." Lumber
will be used and several tents will
also be erected including a mess
tent.
This kind of Kibbutz is typical of
the first installation built in one
night when new areas were to be
settled by the pioneers in Israel
before "48.
The Center has customarily ar-
ranged for a young children's pet-
ting zoo on its campus every Israel
Independence Day. This year the
zoo is to be located immediately
adjacent to the Kibbutz, giving
the Kibbutz building project an ad-
ditional look of authenticity.
Assisting the teenagers is Ft.
Laurderdale resident Moshe Mor,
a native Israeli who is in the con-
struction business here.
The Kibbutz will serve another
purpose. It will provide the ideal
setting for celebrants to gather
and conclude the "Israel 40"
Festival with a giant sing-along.
ISRAEL '40 FEVER
In celebration of "Israel 40" the
Youth Directors' Council, a
representative group of leaders
associated with prominent Jewish
teen organizations, together with
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale will sponsor a
"Sleep-Out," beginning the night
of Saturday, April 16 and con-
clude during the morning of Sun-
day, April 17, when the "Israel
40" Festival will take place on the
Perlman Family Campus of the
Soref Jewish Community Center,
6501 W. Sunrise Blvd.,
Plantation.
The evening will begin at sun-
down at the Quadrangle Health
and Racquetball Coral Springs
facility. A Havdalah service to
conclude the Sabbath observance
will begin the program.
Following, a series of symbolic
cooperative athletic games will be
set up. Called "wally ball' and
"dodge ball," the games award
points to "settlers" who "find" a
way to get into Palestine before
1942.
RoUerskating, sleeping in a
sleeping bag at the Coral Springs
Rink, followed by a trip to the
beach for a sunrise service and
breakfast will culminate with a
ride to Plantation's Fifth Street
Park in time to join the Solidarity
March for Israel beginning at 9:30
a.m. on Sunday morning, April
17. The 1.3 mile march ending at
the JCC campus will coincide with
the Opening Ceremonies of the
Center's "Israel 40" Festival on
its campus from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
with activities and entertainment
for every age group.
Call Richard Kessler, JCC Teen
Director, for information on both
programs 792-6700.

of Greater Fort Lauderdale, receiving funds from the annual
United Jewish Appeal campaign.

Fred Levine at Holocaust Commemoration Program April 14
Fred David Levine, associate
director of the Florida Regional
Office of the Anti-Defamation
League, willl be the keynote
speaker at the Yom HaShoa pro-
gram that will be held on Thurs-
day evening April 14 at Temple
Beth Am in Margate, beginning at
7 p.m.
The event is free and all
members of the community are in-
vited to attend. The Holocaust
commemoration is being co-
sponsored by the Community
Relations Committe of the Jewish
Federation, Temple Beth Am, The
Holocaust Survivors of South
Florida, and the North Broward
Board of Rabbis.
Mr. Levine stated that there are
those revisionist groups that
would have the world believe that
the Holocaust never happened.
(<
"Thus the Jews have a respon-
sibility to bring the message of
memory and a historical
understanding of the Holocaust to
American society as a whole,"
said Levine.
In his keynote address, Levine
will give an overview of the cur-
rent state of anti-Semitism, will
talk about revisionist activities in
this country, and will debunk the
myth that Israel was the payoff
for a guilty West European cons-
cience after World War II.
Rabbi Paul Plotkin will be the
host of the Holocaust com-
memoration program, which will
feature a children's processional
and a candlelighting ceremony in-
volving Holocaust survivors and
second and third generation
families.
Rabbi Paul Plotkin stated, "My
hope is that families will make it a
priority to come together for this
commemoration, to treat the
observance of the 27th day of the
month of Nissan as a religious
obligation, and thus remember the
Holocaust"
Other highlights of the program
will include melodies by the
children's choir and by Temple
Beth Am Cantor Irving
Grossman, greetings from Temple
Beth Am president Pincus
Yacknowitz, a Mincha service lead
by Rabbi Howard Addison of Tem-
ple Beth Israel, and a recital of
Kaddish lead by Rabbi Kurt Stone
of the Tamarac Jewish Center.
For more information on this
program, contact Temple Beth
Am or the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale at
748-8400.
Taking an active role in planning this year's Holocaust com-
memoration program which will be held at Temple Beth Am on
April U are, from left, Norman Gitler, president of the Holocaust
Survivors of South Florida; Barbara K. Wiener, Jewish Federa-
tion Community Relations Committee chairperson; and Rabbi
Paul Plotkin of Temple Beth Am.

tatives of the North Broward
County 20 municipalities are
working diligently to plan the
retreat, which will include among
other topics, "Leadership Com-
mitment, Agency Relationship,
and Creative Images." She in-
dicated that "We want to build a
community, reach out to every
segment, review our current pro-
cess and look to our potential ac-
complishments. This distinguish-
ed group of people will lend the
necessary imput and decision-
making process which will help us
to better understand the issues
confronting our local community,
as well as the needs in Israel and
around the world."
Gold stated that working with
her are:
Alan Becker, Miles Bunder,
Gladys Darenk Steve Fayne, Dr.

Celebrates Sixth Anniversary

The Holocaust Survivors of
South Florida recently celebrated
their sixth anniversary at the
Westin Cypress Creek Hotel. It
was a wonderfully successful af-
fair attended by 400 people.
The group was honored to have
as their guest speaker Israeli Con-
sul General Rachamin Timor. The
Consul General evaluated the
situation in Israel with regard to
the Palestinian uprisings and their
impact on Israel s well-being.
Another speaker, Goldie Golds-
tein, executive vice-president of
the Southeastern Florida
Holocaust Memorial Center in
Miami, spoke of the memories
shared by many survivors, and
how the education process must
continue to ensure that this
tragedy never happens again.
The Holocaust Survivors of
South Florida were also honored
by the American Red Magen
David in recognition of their
$10,000 donation for the Ramat
Gan blood bank in Israel.
President of the Holocaust Sur-
vivors Norman Gitler gave a short
speech dedicated to the group's
membership for their continuing
support of the educational pro-

Legacy of Consumption
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
We are a world of driven consumers. From the twinkling mo-
ment of birth to the flickering finality of death, we are takers. The
very first reflex of breathing inititates the never-ending cycle of
consumption.
We consume, and we are oblivious to the pervasiveness of our
consumption. We take so much that it has no meaning, and the
meaningless course leads us to consume wantonly, carelessly, and
wa8tefully.
Precious commodities are expended without realization or con-
cern that they are precious. We waste water. We use it as though
its supply has no end, and only every year or two during a dry
spell, when consumption does not taper off, are we reminded to
conserve.
We waste trees through our insatiable use of paper. When we
could participate in re-cycling, we are too busy, or it is inconve-
nient, or we simply do not care.
We waste all forms of energy from oil to natural gas. Were it
not for monetary considerations, we would be even more
wasteful.
We are a throw-away society. Nothing is forever. Everything is
disposeable. Cans, glass, razors, lighters, pens, boxes and con-
tainers that store food and merchandise are tossed into the trash
without the least attention or thought.
And we are polluters in the worst way. We pollute the air, the
water, and the land. Paper, glass and aluminum are discarded in
the streets, and the ubiquitous cigarette butt adorns our roads,
sidewalks, and parks. With utter abandon we trash the world,
which we do not accept as our living room.
We resolve ourselves to the fact that this is life, that this is the
way we live, that there is nothing we can do, and what can be
done will be accomplished by others. We leave it to the experts to
clean the air, curb acid rain, and limit ozone depletion. We pay
others menial wages to clean our streets and neighborhoods. For
the present, we will continue to do our own thing. Anyway, we
cannot stop polluting the water, which we must use daily. And are
we expected to stop driving our cars and cooling and heating our
homes? What can we do with paper but to dispose of it, and are
not disposeable items just that?
Are we, therefore, helpless during our sojourn on this ever-
shrinking planet? In some respects, surely. Consumption is a tidal
wave that has exploded our barriers and has become ingrained in
our fiber. We live to consume.
Yet, we can in other ways impact on our society. We can,
should, and must reach beyond our inner circle of friends and
families, for what we do and do not do will effect their lives.
We can join. So few of us belong to organizations. If we do not
become actively involved, our membership will still help. Cmr dues
will assist these groups in furthering their worthwhile goals,
whether fighting disease, hunger, and prejudice, helping someone
with a family crisis, or raising a voice of protest for peace and
against injustice in the halls of government. Our numbers help,
for it gives these organizations that much needed clout when they
seek to protect our interests and those dearest to us.
We can become participants. Even fewer of us take active roles.
It does not have to be a position of leadership. It does not have to
be time consuming. Can we commit to a few hours a year to at-
tend a few meetings, make some phone calls, and help with a par-
ticular project? How much time do we spend watching television
or following other pursuits, surely enjoyable, but really only self-
gratifying? We do not need to give them up; we need only
prioritize and decide what is truly important and relevant in our
lives. Time is precious, and we waste so much of it.
And, yes, if we cannot or will not donate our energies, we can
still make a monetary contribution.
One hears of and reads so many faceless names. Who are these
people? What are they doing with their lives? What will be their
legacy? Will they lend a hand? Will they help others in need? In-
evitably, they and their families will benefit as well. Have we been
placed here only to consume? Do we have any responsibility to
give something in return? The plea is an old and tired one, and
though we may and should answer in the affirmative, we find it so
hard to take the first step, but once we have ... oh! the rewards!

Crisis in the Occupied Territories
Evokes Bedrock Support of Israel
President Ronald Reagan in a
speech to members of the United
Jewish Appeal Prime Ministers
Club recently stated that "the
safety and security of the U.S.
and the safety and security of
Israel are all part of a larger
cause, the cause of human rights
for every man, woman and child
on this earth."
One week earlier, Syrian presi-
dent Assad, in a speech com-
memorating the 25th anniversary
of the revolution which brought
his party to power, stated, "The
Israelis claim that Palestine is
theirs ... But they will never stay
in Palestine. Our heroic Palesti-
nian people and our Arab masses
are lying in wait everywhere and,
above all, in Palestine."
Once again, Israel's secrutiy is
threatened by a Palestinian peo-
ple bent on self-determination,
and from an Arab world that still
largely refuses to accept Israel's
right to exist.
Israel finds itself in an unusual
role of having to defend its rule
over another people and thus she
continues to battle an onslaught of
some of the most biased press
coverage and harshest criticism
from all corners of the world in
her 40 years of statehood.
Al Golden, a national life com-
missioner of the Anti-Defamation
League and Federation board
member is worried about criticism
from another source, American
Jews.
Goldent stated, "The diaspora
has a right to criticize but not go
public with that criticism, because
it doesn't do Israel or the non-
Jewish world any good it only
serves to fuel anti-Semitism
around the world as currently
rearing it's ugly head right here in
South Florida."
The Floridian asked our area
Washington congressmen for
their views on the current situa-
tion in the administered ter-
ritories. Congressmen E. Clay
Shaw, Jr., and Larry Smith ex-
pressed their views below. Con-
gressman Dan Mica, Democrat,
14th District was unavailable for
comment at this time.
U.S. Congressman E. Clay Shaw
Jr. Republican 15th district
I am saddened and disappointed
by the outbreak of violence in the
occupied territories. The peaceful
resolution of the grievances of the
residents of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip is critical to the con-
tinuation of the Mideast peace
process. Neither rocks nor rifles
serve to advance mutual
understanding and cooperation.
Perhaps the best way that we
can assist the peace process is to
express both our disapproval of
the current situation and our
recognition that it will take time
to correct it. Overbearing
pressure on either the Israelis or
the Palestinians may result in a
short therm "band-aid" settle-
ment which ultimately does more
harm than good.
Shaw added, "Until the fa.

in 1948 as a long-term forea

are beginning to pay dividends -
the world's opinion of Israel hat

violence began."
Congressman Smith continued,
"Everyone is beating on Israel to

Anschluss Commemoration Reveals Austria
By RABBI
MARC H. TANENBAUM
The observance this month
of the 50th anniversary of the
Anschluss, Nazi Germany's an-
nexation of Austria, is reveal-
ing the worst and the best of
Austrian society.
The worst is reflected in the
appalling fact that for the past
40 years most Austrians have
imagined themselves the "first
victims" of Nazi aggression
and have systematically denied
or repressed any knowledge of
their massive involvement.
But the historic truths brought
to the fore during this com-
memoration can no longer be
denied.
When Hitler and his Nazi
hordes marched into Austria
on March 13, 1938, they were
greeted deliriously by some
200,000 Austrians in Vienna.
Austria provided three-
quarters of the death-camp of-
ficers, including Adolf
Eichmann and SS Commander
Ernst Kaltenbrunner.
But the best of Austria is
also surfacing today. Young
Austrians by the thousands
are holding vigils,
demonstrating for Waldheim's
resignation and sponsoring
seminars on Austria's Nazi
past. And most reassuring is
the leadership of Chancellor
Franz Vranitzky, who em-
bodies the now democratic
Austria. Vranitzky gave mean-
ing to the Anschluss, on March
12, in these words:
"We must never forget and
we must insure there is
nothing in today's society that
could lead us into an abyss, as
happened in 1938."

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

all problems which are troubling
Israel at the moment, and help
Jews around the world survive
and flourish.

WOMEN AND
FLORIDA LAW
The room was filled to capacity
on March 17, 1988 as women
responded to a 'subpoena' inviting
them to a seminar "For, By, and
About Women." Everyone was
eager to hear the three expert
panelists assembled address.
"Women's Rights Under Florida
Law." All three speakers are
residents of Ft. Lauderdale and
regular contributors to our
Women's Division Federation
campaign. Under the auspices of
the Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies of our Federation, just a
few of the topics they covered
were 'wills,' 'premarital
agreements,' 'joint ownership,'
'law returns,' and 'charitable
trusts.'
Shirley D. Weisman, an ex-
tremely knowledgeable and for-
thright attorney, held the au-
dience spellboud as she explained
the benefits both to the married
couple and their children of pre-
marital agreements, we learned
that pre-maritial agreements (as
all other contracts) can be
modified. There are many various
ways to protect ourselves, our
children, and our grandchilden,
financially, in cases of illness,
death, divorce, or remarriage. All
of us assume that we can survive,
if we are unexpectedly required to
manage our own financial and
legal affars. It is important,
however, to know the right ques-
tions to ask our attorneys, accoun-
tants, bankers and other advisors.
The many questions put to our
panel indicated the thirst for more
knowledge on the part of this
audience.
Shirley returned to law school
when her children started
kindergarten. She started practic-
ing law in Pennsylvania in 1971.
In 1977 she passed the Florida
Bar exam and today has a general
civil practice. She is presently the
Florida Bar Designate in Estate
and Probate and has been Florida
Bar Designate in Family Law.
Our second presenter, Barbara
Kent, is a Florida Certified Public
Accountant. A Masters Degree in
Counseling (which was her
original vocation) is still helpful in
assisting people fill out their tax
returns. As many of her genera-
tion, Barbara returned to school
for a career change while her
daughters were in college. She
became certified in 1983 and went
to work in public accounting. Bar-
bara is now the Chief Accountant
for the Broward County Sheriffs
office, where she oversees a
budget of $105 million dollars ..
with a payroll of 2,200 employees.
Her background is in taxes and
planning.
Barbara dispelled some of our
fears about taxes. She addressed
the subject of 'The Florida In-
tangible Tax,' which is unique to
the State of Florida, in a clear and
understandable manner. Intangi-
ble property has no value in
itselft, but it represents
something of value. A stock cer-
tificate represents the value of the
stock. It is therefore 'intangible.'
Most of us have come in contact
with Florida's 'non-recurring in-
tangible tax' when purchasing a
home. We sign a note securing the
monthly mortgage payments, and
pay 'tax stamps' which are paid
only at that time. They constitute
a 'non-recurring intangible tax.'
The second type of intangible tax
is an annual tax on such items as
out-of-state bonds (Florida sells
its own municipal bonds tax-free).
Barbara also informed us that,
"Money in a bank's 'Certificate of
Deposit Money Market' is con-
sidered non-taxable. A com-
parable CD. in a Money Market
held with a stock broker (ie; Paine
Webber, Pru-Bache etc.) is listed
as an 'intangible and is therefore
taxable." We learned more about
our individual responsibilities ass
tax payers of the State of Florida.
Those of us who listened to Bar-
bara will read our tax returns
more carefully when we affix our
signatures this April.
Yetta Karel Goldreyer, a bride
of only six months, was our third
panelist. When Yetta retired as
the Foundation Director of the
UJA/Federation of New York Ci-
ty, then Foundation held an $11
million portfolio. Prior to this post
At the Financial Awareness Seminar for Women were, from left,
Yetta Karel Godreyer, facilitator; ShirUy D. Weisman,
facilitator; Barbara Kent, facilitator, Jacob Brodzki, Founda-
tion chairman; and Deborah Fuller Hahn, Seminar Chair of the
Day.
she was assistant director of the
New York Women's Division for
over 30 years. Being a profes-
sional in New York Women's Divi-
sion that long is no easy task ...
their Women's goal this year is
$17 million. Although she is now a
volunteer, Yetta's professional
experience and expertise includes
both fund-raising and charitable
giving strategies.
What is a Philanthropic Fund
and why does a woman need one?
Such a fund can be set up at any
given time, with money
designated to be given to
'charities' of the donor's choice at
any later date. The initial and
subsequent contributions are, of
course, tax deductible. If we are
to be fiscally responsible, we must
make clear provisions to meet oar
continued charitable obligations.
The Jewish community also
benefits from Endowment Funds.
The funds, established by the
Foundation, can assure future
donations to the Hebrew Day
School, Jewish Family Service,
the JCC, to UJA or Federation
... or indeed, to any other
recognized (by the Federal
Government) philanthropic
organizaton.
There are, of course, many
other ways to help both ourselves
and our fellow Jews. We learned
much ... but wew have very far
yet to go. Have we answered all
the questions? What is a Florida

OF BROWARD COUNTY
Sherwin Rosenstein,
Executive Director
The Medicare Maven
Makes His Mark
Ten years ago, Richard Cher-
nok has one of 20 people who
volunteered to be part of a new
Jewish Family Service program,
providing assistance to Broward
County residents who had ques-
tions or prooblems with Medicare
claims
1
After thousands of claims and
ten of thousands of dollars
reclaimed for Medicare recipients,
Mr. Chernok is still committed to
the task. "I know darn well that
they need me," he says.
"If they're being deprived of
any money, I'll find it. I know how
to get the claims through," Mr.
Charnok boasts proudly.
Faithfully, every Monday morn-
ng he comes to work at the Jewish
Family Service office at 8358
Oakland Park Blvd. His files are
full of pending claims and he car-
ries a list of follow up calls that
need to be made.
"It's hard to find a volunteer
who is as dedicated as Richard.
He's determined to help people
get all that they're due from
Medicare," says Sherwin Rosens-
tein, executive director, Jewish
Family Service of Broward
County.
In one case a few years back,
the Medicare Maven Chernok
helped a client get a $12,000 reim-
bursement following eye surgery,
"it was my single largest settle-
ment. I felt real good about that
one," he says. "He was so
grateful."
Started Ac Career Lawyer
Standing up for his clients'
rights is not new to Mr.Cchernok.
He was a lawyer in New York City
for more than 30 years before
coming here to retire in 1978.
After a bustling law practice, the
slow pace of retirement life was
tough to handle.
"I was retired to the extent that
I wasn't doing anything," he ad-
mits. The Medicare Assistance
Program at Jewish Family Ser-
vice gave him a new role that he
still loves to this day.
He explains, "It's interesting,
exciting and a challenge. I tell
these people I will do a good job
and I do my best. Their smiles and
thank you's make it all
worthwhile.'

Foundation of Jewish Philanthropic!
Creating A Legacy
For the 2l8t Century
_______Jacob Brodzki, Chairman
The Foundation has a group of attorneys, accountants
and other professionals who will volunteer their time to
assist you in drawing up your endowment program with
the Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies.
Endowment Fund: A fund established by an indivi-
dual donor, family or foundation, consisting of gifts that
provide a source of income for the future.
Here are several programs you may consider and re-
ceive personal benefits.
Life Insurance Policy: The Endowment Fund of the
Jewish Federation may be named the beneficiary of a
new or existing life insurance policy. One's annual pre-
miums may then be deducted as a charitable contribu-
tion.
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 principal 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 beneficiaries.
Charitable Lead Trust An arrangement in which there
is a contribution of an income interest to a charity. Pro-
perty is transferred to a trust and an immediate income in-
terest in the property is donated to a charitable organiza-
tion for a period of years or for the life or lives of the indi-
vidual or individuals. 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 liquidation of a business or the sale of shares of
stock or other property 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 institutions or areas of interest.
Pooled Income Fund: 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.
I want to do my share to ensure a strong Jewish commu-
nity for tomorrow. Please send me more information on

Bonaventure Dinner Dance
Helps a World of Jewish Need
Members of the Bonaventure
community showed their heartfelt
generosity towards their fellow
Jews as they pledged $105,000 to
the 1988 Federation/UJA cam-
paign at the recent Bonaventure
Dinner Dance held at the
Bonaventure Country Club.
75 people dined on a sumptuous
buffet and danced the night away
at this very festive event. Israeli
entertainer Danny Tadmore
treated everyone to a fine selec-
tion of song and comedy which
delighted all who attended. In ad-
dition, Bonaventure residents
were treated to a showing of the
new Federation video presenta-
tion, "The Light Shines Bright,"
which celebrates 20 years of
Federation growth in the Greater
Fort Lauderdale community.
Charlotte Padek, Women's Divi-
sion General Campaign chair of
the Jewish Federation, spoke on
the needs of people in our local
community, while Phil Sacks,
Bonaventure Committee co-chair,
talked about the current situation
in Israel, stressing that our sup-
port for the Jewish state is needed
now more than ever.
Members of the Sands Point Condominium recently held a very
successful Federation/UJA breakfast at the Tamarac Jewish
Center. From left, are Ray Rosenblatt, Tamarac Division chair
Milton Kern, Pauline Jaye, Edith TrombeU, Morris Goldberg,
and Sands Point UJA chairman Al Josser.
Enjoying a very festive evening at the recent Bonaventure Dinner
Dance are 1988 Federation/UJA Bonaventure Division co-chairs,

Charlotte Padek stated, "The
Dinner Dance celebration went
very well. This community has a
core of committed supporters of
the Jewish Federation, and we're
looking forward to expanding our
horizens next year to include even
more people who are moving into
the area.'
During the course of the even-
ing, a drawing was held for a sur-
prise gift and Charlotte Zien was
the lucky winner of an airline
ticket to anywhere in the U.S.
A special thanks goes to the
very dedicated members of the
Bonaventure committee who
helped put this event together.

} CAMPAIGN '88 Federation/United Jewish Appeal
From the Desk of the General Chairman...
Come Be a Part of our Federation/UJA Family-We Must Achieve $7.6 Million
For Our 50 Plus Agencies and Services
Harold L. O-hry
Six and a quarter million
dollars, 13.5 percent increase,
total accounts tally more than 23
thousand contributors.
These are impressive figures for
our North Broward County com-
munity Federation/UJA has
come a long way in our 20th year
of doing business but even with
that response from a generous
Jewish people, we still have a long
way to go.
Last Fall, the leadership of our
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale held a series of
goal-setting meetings and set the
'88 campaign drive at $7.6 million
to help meet the critical and vital
needs facing our brethren here at
home, in Israel, and in 33 other
lands.
As we go to press, our communi-
ty has responded with more than
$6 million, which after hearing a
stirring and heartfelt address by
Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, was
announced to a gathering of over
450 at our March campaign clos-
ing event at the JCC.
But profound as that may be
and as grateful as our Jewish con-
stituents may be, the numbers are
confusing.
First of all, this money
represents some 20,000 gifts in a
community that has more than
150,000 men, women and
children, which means that only
some 13 percent of the people are
pledging a life-saving, life-
enhancing gift to the Jewish com-
munity's major philanthropy.
Compare this with the numbers
released by the Broward County
Board indicating that some 200 in-
dividuals are moving into the
County daily, of which we can
assume some 20 percent are
Jewish, and the increased need for
services begin to escalate.
As the major agencies and
beneficiaries call for additional
allocations, our involvement in
Federation will make the positive
difference in our ability to help
support these programs.
I appeal to our faithful family of
Federation contributors to help us
reach out and meet our friends,
neighbors, and associates, and
make them a part of this won-
drous campaign.
What other organization con-
solidates the fund-raising efforts
of its many beneficiary agencies
into a single, cost effective,
volunteer-efficient, time-efficient
appeal?
In reviewing the current figures
I realize that our job is really in
the critical stages. Notice if you

Young Leadership Celebrates Israel's Anniversary in Washington
Imagine standing in an enor-
mous room with 3,000 other
young Jewish leaders from all
over the United States singing the
Hatikvah in anticipation of
welcoming the Prime Minister of
Israel.
This was the experience of 32
young leaders from Fort Lauder-
dale on Monday evening, March
14 in Washington, DC. This was
the official opening of the 40th an-
niversary of Israel celebrations in
this country, and what better
place to begin than in our nation's
Capitol.
The Sixth National UJA Young
Leadership Conference was an in-
tensive experience of 48 hours
packed to the brim with program-
ming which included speakers
from Congress, major organiza-
tions, universities, and members
of various magazines and
newspapers. It was often difficult
to choose which session to attend
when there were as many as 10
concurrent sessions held during
one programming period. For ex-
ample, one time slot included a
choice of such people as Chaim
Potock, John Loftus, Dr. Deborah
Lipstadt, Rabbi Reuven Kim-
melman and Dr. Marc
Tannenbaum.
Paul Lehrer. chairman for the
Jewish Federation's Oceanside
Division here in Fort Lauderdale,
stated, "Whenever you gather

We were the official welcoming

the President, and he received a
long, standing ovation and un-
wavering round of support for his
important visit here.'
Andrea Linn, a member of the
Federation's Young Business and
Professionals Division, stated, "It
was incredibly exciting to have
the opportunity to be with your
peers and listen to prominent
speakers from ail over the world.
As a first time participant there
was so much to absorb and 1 am
looking forward to the next
Washington conference."
One of the outstanding
highlights of the trip was the op-
portunity to engage in the lobby-
ing process on Capitol Hill. On the
last morning of the conference, all

respective congressmen and
senators to let them know young

tration camp victims to the death
camps of Birkenau. "We will

trains brought our brethren to
their death explained Ana
Bugdadi, one teenage participant.
"We will have to confront our
feelings regarding this destruc-
tion of the Jewish people. The
culmination of the program will be

Shana Safer, Young Business

the opportunity to network with

Scott Rassler, chairperson of
the Fort Lauderdale delegation,
added, "This conference helped
me to better understand some of
the more complex issues facing
Israel and Jewish people. The ex-
perience of joining with 3,000
other young Jews left me with a
tremendous feeling of pride and
involvement. Unlike the genera-

helpless during the Holocaust, our
is a generation of activists. The
challenge before us is to translate
our newfound knowledge and en-
thusiasm into further action in our
home communities."

home by the Fort Lauderdale

Tzedakah
To do Tzedakah is to heed
A mandate from the Lord;
So alms to help the destitute
Are what we must afford ...
It isn't just a charity
With freedom to refuse,
But it's a duty we're obliged
To perform as Jews.
Our covenant with G-d is that
We help the poor and ill,
And thereby set up Justice in
Accordance with His will.
We must examine current needs,
And then participate
In all campaigns that serve both
us,
And our Jewish State.
So donate funds the most you
can.
Let last year be outdone ...
There's nothing like Tzedakah
now
To make our people one.

Hospice Chaplain Comforts Terminally
III Patients in Broward County
Gold Coast
Council
BBYO
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Rabbi Howard Seif says that
in his role as North Broward
County hospice chaplain the
most important thing is to be a
friend to a dying patient and to
be there in support of the
family.
Rabbi Seif was appointed by
the Jewish Federation's
Chaplaincy Commission, a
beneficiary of the annual
Federation/UJA Campaign, in
conjunction with Hospice Inc.
to service the Greater Fort
Lauderdale area hospice
program.
Rabbi Seif was more than
happy to take on the respon-
sibility of helping those who
are terminally ill, and related,
"As long as you leave people
comfortable in whatever situa-
tion you're confronted with,
that's what matters."
Hospice Inc. of Broward ser-
vices about 100 familes who
are Jewish, many of whom are
unaffiliated Jews which count
on outside sources of help in
what is a difficult situation.
The Rabbi tries to make the
patient and the family comfor-
table with whatever level of
Judaism they are at, and is
ready to cover the basic
guidelines for funeral ar-
rangements so that families
have all the options available
to them to make an informed
decision.
Rabbi Seif is one of a dozen
professionals, including
nurses, aides, physicians, and
volunteers that work as a team
to provide quality care for pa-
tients in Nursing homes, their
own homes, or at Hospice Care
facilities.
There are two Hospice
Houses in Broward County
one at University Community
Hospital and the other is at
Hollywood Medical Center.
The two purposes of Hospice
House are to take in patients
on a temporary basis to
stabilize the patient so that
he/she can return home, and to
offer care to a person in
his/her last days of life, allow-
ing one to die in a facility that
is more like a home than a
hospital.

tein, Justen Skiff, Jennifer Halpern, Michael Frieser, and Jen-
nifer Kay.
Seif related that "once a pa-
tient passes away, we followup
with the family or spouse for
one year under our bereave-
ment program."
Seif continued that all
members of the community
who have experienced a recent
loss are invited to attend these
weekly bereavement sessions
to explore their grief and talk
about the realities of moving
on with their lives.
Rabbi Seif has been a
hospice chaplain since August
of last year and works as part
of a team that services nursing
homes in Broward County,
providing supplemental care to
an often overworked facility.
The Hospice chaplain talked
about his commitment to his
job and to the Jewish people:
"Even though I'm an Or-
thodox Rabbi, I have mutual
respect and love for all Jews;
I'm not out to change people,
I'm there to help them with all
their needs."

Hospice Inc., contact their of-
fice in Lauderhill at 486-4085.
The B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization recently sponsored a
"Jewly-Bred Game" for the Coral
Springs community. Based upon
the popular "Newlywed Game,"
the program teamed up Jewish
teenagers with their parents to
see how well they really know one
another. Held at the Jewish
Federation's Coral Springs office,
the program attracted over 30
parents and teens.
The purpose of the program was
to help the parents and teens to
learn about and better understand
one another and, of course, to
have fun. Special focus was placed
upon the participants' attitudes
towards Jewish issues such as
inter-dating, Israel and Jewish
observance.
According to Richard Kessler,
BBYO Program Assistant, "It
was wonderful to see the
teenagers and parents laughing
with each other. Initially the kids
were hesitant about having a pro-
gram with their parents but once
it got underway they found that
they could have fun with them.
Now that they've tried it and liked
it, everyone would like to have
more programs like this in the
future."
The B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization is the oldest and
largest Jewish youth organization
in the world and sponsors a wide
variety of social, athletic, com-
munity service, cultural and
Judaic activities throughout the
year. Jewish teenagers ages 14-18
who are interested in finding out
more about BBYO and its ac-
tivities should contact the BBYO
office at 581-0218 or 925-4135.
BBYO is a beneficiary of the
Jewish Federation/UJA Annual
Campaign.
The B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization (BBYO) is pleased to
announce that it is currently form-
ing new chapters for graduate and
potential participants of the Alex-
ander Muss High School in Israel
program.
The purpose of the groups will
be to help strengthen the ties
among the High School in Israel
participants and between them
and the local Jewish community.
Besides participation in the
"typical" facets of the BBYO pro-
gram, including social, athletic,
community service, cultural and
Judaic activities, the HSI chapters
are expected to play a leading role
in community efforts on behalf of
Israel, Soviet Jewry and general
Jewish affairs. Additionally, the
chapters should help provide peer
support for the sometimes emo-
tionally draining process of
preparing for the trip and resum-
ing life back home after comple-
tion of the HSI program.
According to Jerry Kiewe,
BBYO Assistant Regional Direc-
tor, "involvement in these
chapters will certainly enhance
the experience of the HSI par-
ticipants and I also forsee many
potential benefits to both the local
Jewish community and to the
state Israel."
Three co-ed chapters will be
formed, in North Broward/Boca
Raton; in South Broward/North
Dade; and in South Dade.
Membership in the chapters will
be open to any Jewish boy or girl
who has completed the High
School in Israel program or who is
enrolled to attend an upcoming
session.

Editor's Note: Mildred Ritter, a Gathering Place participant,
her heart full of love and appreciation for the wonderful time she
had, penned the following ode of thanks:
"DEAR HEARTS AND GENTLE PEOPLE"
i
A meeting of old friends ocurred during the an-
nual holiday visit of Elite Apponte Salus'
Generation Gap and the Seniors of the Jewish
Federation's Kosher Nutrition Program. Bet-
ween the reunion of friends, there was the singing
and dancing of a talented and lively group.
Shown seated: Violinist, Esther Bass, Drummer,
Sam Martell. Standing: Chanteuese, Evelyn K
(that's her show name), Bass Sax, Charlie Solus
and effervescent Ellie Apponte Salus,
Director!Accordionist.
The Hanukah holiday season was so chock full for
the Seniors that when special friend Blanche
Bombart, Community Services chairman of
Hope Chapter, B'nai B'rith Women called with
gifts and entertainment, the holiday had to be ex-
tended an extra day. Shown are Hope Chapter
friends, standing, from left, Rae Sail, Belle
Korn, Ida Karol, and Blanche Bombart, and
seated are Nutrition members, Danny Levine
and Sally Miller. Not shown are Pearl Kline,
singer, and Anne Mermelstein, pianist.
This Chanukah will go down in history,
Thus and forever more may it be.
The 21st of December, 1987, was a day we'll long remember.
The Women's League for Israel presented a show,
They warmed the hearts of everyone as onward they did go.
I don't recall each one's name, but their appearance could lead to
fame.
Lady No. 1 sang songs with love,
Then Lady No. 2 joined in, and 'twas heaven above.
After this a gentlemen sang,
Their voices were so lyrical, the dining room rang.
To continue, two clowns were on the stage,
And frankly speaking, they were the rage.
Little Grandmas, danced and shook
While Grandson observed with a lively look.
After showtime, Grandson handed gifts to everyone,
This all added to the fun.
As you are givers from your heart,
Love and goodness will never part.
Consider yurselves embraced!!

Holocaust
By Charles Saber
Oft in the still of night, terror awakes me
Fearful images race through my mind.
I'm lost in a world without grace or pity
And the God of my Father seems mute and blind
How else could this God who made man in his image
Look upon cruelties only heH could devise
How else could this God. who made man in his image
Turn away from his people and hear their cries
The weeping of children, the screams of the dying
The prayers that were offered in vain
And the millions of corpses who witnessed that madness
Did he promise them. "Never Again."
He sent no Samson to lead them in battle
No Moses arose to show them the way
They were led to the slaughter Ute driven cattle
While the winds of hate swept them away
Still, as the tormented souls it once harbered
The horrors of Auschwitz must not be in vain
So that out of the ashes of our martyred people
The Phoenix of hate shall not rise again
Oh Israel. Israel, let no vows enveigle you
Let no pledge beguile you
Beware of prayers and their haunting refrain
Lest the God who once promised a brighter tomorrow
Should hill us to sleep again.

IDF Attacks
Press and
Coverage
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVTV (JTA) The
Israel Defense Force plans to
take punitive action against
journalists who file what it
contends are false reports of
events in the administered
territories.
This was confirmed by the
IDF's chief spokesman, Brig.
Gen. Ephraim Lapid, who said
the measures would be applied
against both Israeli reporters
and foreign correspondents.
But the National Federation
of Israeli Journalists has vow-
ed to fight any government at-
tempt to punish reporters
whose copy it dislikes.
The federation noted that
the IDF has recourse to the
Press Council or the federa-
tion's own ethics committee if
it feels there has been a
misrepresentation of* facts.
But the journalists profes-
sional association said it would
not allow the government to be
"both the accuser and the
judge."
According to Lapid, the
IDF's purpose is to combat
what it claims is an increasing
number of false news reports
from the West Bank and Gaza
Strip that do damage to its
image.
An example cited was a
report that Palestinians have
been thrown out of
helicopters. The IDF
spokesman said there is "ab-
solutely no truth" to such
reports. He said there have
been exhaustive investigations
of every rumor.
The question of local press
coverage may become moot if
the Press Workers Union car-
ries out its announced plans to
strike Israeli newspapers "for
an indefinite period/
The issue is a threat by the
Publishers Association to in-
sist on separate wage negotia-
tions at each newspaper, in-
stead of the collective bargain-
ing in force until now.

JERUSALEM An international conference on the history
and culture of Polish Jews, held recently at the Hebrew Universi-
ty in Jerusalem, seemed to give important impetus not only to
research on the role of the Jews in Polish History, but also to the
future relationship between Poland and world Jewry, including
ties between the Polish and Israeli governments.
TEL AVIV An Israeli Cabinet minister visiting South Africa
has reportedly violated the government's ban against any contact
with officials of the South African government. Avraham
Shapira, a minister representing the National Religious Party,
received foreign ministry approval for the visit so that he could
promote immigration to Israel from the South African Jewish
community.
JERUSALEM The Knesset enacted legislation recently
outlawing sexism at the work place and protecting women
employees from sexual harassment. The legislation, considered a
landmark for Israel in this area, also provides for maternity leave
for new fathers.
TEL AVIV Alexei Magarik, a former prisoner of Zion in the
Soviet Union, was released recently and arrived in Israel with his
wife and son. The 29-year-old musicologist and cellist was ar-
rested in March of 1986 for teaching Hebrew and was sentenced
to prison for three years.
TEL-AVIV Unrest in the West Bank and Gaza appears to
have had no negative effect on tourims to Israel so far this year.
Tourist arrivals to Israel during the first two months of this year
are up 18 percent from the same period last year.

Our Best for a Joyous Passover
You haven't fully celebrated Passover ...
unless you have actually tasted the bitterness of bondage, and resolved never to inflict it upon
another person's spirit or will.
You haven't fully celebrated Passover ...
unless you have felt the anguish of those whose daily fare is not much more ample than
unleavened bread, and have resolved to help alleviate their plight.
You haven't fully celebrated Passover ...
unless you take fresh delight in the glories of the nascent Spring season, and profound exulta-
tion in the redemption of our people from slavery to freedom in days past, and in our own times
in the land of Israel.
unless you have truly said "Dayenu" "Thank You, 0 Lord our God, for the blessings which
You have bestowed upon me. Even a fraction of them would excite my gratitude."
You haven't fully celebrated Passover ...
until you totally realize, like Moses, that you are obligated to resist that evil which threatens not
yourself, but others .. and that your fate is inexorably bound up with the fate of Jews
everywhere in the world.
You haven't fully celebrated Passover ...
until you realize that physical freedom is only the prerequisite to spiritual elevation, and that
even Passover itself is incomplete without Shavuot, and the giving of the torah.
You haven't fully celebrated Passover ...
until you have decided to prove yourself worthy of the suffering, the sacrifice and the courage of
your ancestors throughout the generations.
You haven't fully celebrated Passover ...
until you realize that the very telling of the Passover story in the Haggadah is an act of faith and
of commitment, and you have transmitted that faith to the generations seated around the table
with you.
You haven't fully celebrated Passover...
until every Jew, indeed every human being, lives in freedom and dignity, in a world in which na-
tion shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they yearn war anymore._____________
Florida's Judicial System
Knowing More About It
By JUDGE
BARRY S. SELTZER
Broward County Court
It has been said that what
separates our government from
the tyrannies of the world is a fair
and impartial judiciary. Yet, out-
side of the legal profession,
relatively little is known about our
judicial system its structure,
procedures, and programs. In the
weeks ahead, this column will ad-
dress court-related topics of
widespread public interest and
concern. The articles will attempt
to answer commonly asked ques-
tions, such as: how do you file a
small claim? what can you do if
you receive a traffic ticket? what
happens to a person upon arrest?
what are your rights aa a victim of
a crime? what do you do if you are
called for jurv duty? how should
you proceed if you are subpoenaed
as a witness? Some of the many
Programs offered by the Courts
will also be described, including:
"e Defensive Driving School
Program; The Guardian Ad Litem
Program for Neglected and Abus-
ed Children; The Court Mediation
and Arbitration Program; and,
The Broward Senior Intervention
and Education Program.
The structure of the courts is
relatively straight-forward and
familiarity with it is important to
an understanding of its pro-
cedures and programs. Florida's
judicial system is organized in
tiers. The first tier is the County
Court, sometimes thought of as
"the People's Court." County
Courts handle criminal misde-
meanors, violations of country
and municipal ordinances, and
civil disputes of $5,000 or less.
Traffic violations, "small claims,"
and landlord-tenant claims are
heard in this court. Broward has
19 County Court Judges assigned
to either the central courthouse in
Fort Lauderdale or to one of the
three regional courthouses in
Hollywood, Lauderhill, or Pom-
pano Beach.
Appeals from the County Court
are reviewed by the Circuit Court.
Circuit Judges have dual respon-
sibilities, for they also try criminal
felonies and civil disputes in ex-
cess of $5,000. Broward has 42 ac-
tive Circuit Judges, divided into
four divisions: criminal; general
civil; probate; and juvenile.
Appeals from the Circuit Court
are taken to the District Court of
Appeal and from there, to the
Florida Supreme Court.
Judge Barry Seltzer received kis
law degrees (J.D.; LL.M.) from
New York University. He is a
former Assistant United States
Attorney for the Southern District
of Florida and is currently a judge
for the Broward County Court.
T

their help in rescuing Jews during
the Holocaust.
NATIONAL FOUNDATION

itiatives in Jewish Arts and
Culture" grants, funded by its
Newman Incentive Awards Pro-
gram. In the last decade, they
