North Broward Jewry Responds to 'A World of Jewish Need'. ,
"$6.9 Million Mark Nears For '88 UJA!"
"What we have accom-
plished in the past eight
months has been remark-
able. We have achieved
close to a record $6.9
[million for our Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale/United Jewish
Appeal campaign during a
memorable time in both our
history and that of our
brethren in Israel!"
The words of newly
elected Federation presi-
dent Tamarac entrepreneur
Harold L. Oshry, who as
general chairman of the '88
campaign praised the corps
of men and women volun-
teer workers and contribu-
tors alike for the
outstanding job accom-
plished in this, the 20th
Anniversary of North
Broward County's central
major organization, and the
State of Israel's 40th
In making the comments,
Oshry cited the perform-
ances of each of the major
areas and divisions which
make up the 20-municipality
community of North
Broward County, and paid
specific plaudits to the
campaign cabinet team
whose diligence and persev-
erance accounted to date
for a dollar gain of more
than 10 percent over last
In a special meeting with
key leaders, Oshry indi-
cated that the massive
undertaking involved every
segment of the community.
He said, "The young,
elderly, families singles,
every social and economic
faction, took part in the
Jewish community's major
philanthropy, and when the
final tallies are recorded, it
will prove to be a moment of
heartfelt pride and
profound feelings."

held last month, both Oshry
and immediate past presi-
dent Plantation's Sheldon

The history of the eternal
capital of Israel will unfold amidst
the pomp and celebration when
tens of thousands of American
and world Jewish Federation/
United Jewish Appeal leaders
participate in the "UJA at 50
Jubilee in Jerusalem as part of
the upcoming Greater Fort Laud-
erdale Federation/UJA Presi-
dent's Jubilee Mission and
Community Country Club
Missions in October.
According to CCC Mission chair
Jacob Brodzki, "It will be a gala
Saturday evening, October 15,
when our Jewish brethren, repre-
senting some 200 Federations
from throughout North America
and other Federation communi-
ties worldwide, join for a special
concert, street fair, featuring folk-
lore, music and Israeli cuisine, and
a special dedication of "UJA
Square," by past and present UJA
leaders in a "kaddish convocation.
And we want you to be part of this
memorable occasion!"
Brodzki referred to the Presi-
dent's Jubilee Mission, October
9-21, and the Community Country
Club Mission October 13-26 to
Poland and Israel. Among the
highlights of the two week
programs will be an up-to-the-
minute account of current condi-
tions as they now exist in Israel
and an opportunity to go behind
the headlines.
On the CCC Mission, partici-
pants will be able to spend some
leisure time enjoying golf, tennis
and spa time, in addition to a
special Shabbat at the Western
Wall and a visit to the Project
Renewal city of Kfar Saba.
In explaining why a Federation
Mission to Israel is different from
all other trips, Brodzki stated,
"The difference is what you get
... on all other trips you go as a
tourist, on a Federation Mission
you experience discovery and
revelation a sense of self. It is
an opportunity to see for yourself
what has been accomplished by
the Jewish people when their
energy and resources are used
fully and creatively. It is an oppor-
tunity to touch not cold stones,
but warm hearts and encounter
the reality of life in Israel today."
Each Mission includes deluxe
accommodations, meals, briefing
with government officials, visits to
Military installation and much
more. For complete details and

owitz, director of Missions, at

Don't Suffer
From Urinary Incontinence
Now There's Help.
Anyone in North Broward
County planning a trip to the
Soviet Union, please contact
Joel Telles, Community Rela-
tions Committee Director at
the Jewish Federation, 748-
8400, for important informa-
tion or an orientation.
It may well be the most embar-
rassing and potentially devastat-
ing malady of all. Incontinence,
the inability to control urinary
functions, is suffered by young
and old, men and women. In fact,
according to Dr. William Pin-
tauro, a specialist in the problem
of incontinence, over 12 million
Americans have reported this
condition, while many more
choose to suffer behind closed
In this day and age, too many
of these people are told that they
have to live with their problem,
when, in fact, they can be helped.
According to a recent study in
"Medical World News", 90% of
people with incontinence can be
treated to achieve total or
greatly improved bladder
"The problem is more preva-
lent in women after menopause,"
says Dr. Pintauro. "For elderly
women it is one of the frequent
reasons for admission to a nurs-
ing home. Many of these women
become virtual recluses because
they're afraid of embarrassing
wetness in a public situation."
In addition to menopause,
incontinence can have a variety
of causes. Among the most com-
mon are neurological disorders
such as stroke and Parkinsons
Disease, the aftereffects of
abdominal surgeries, surgery of
the prostate in men and hysterec-
tomies. It can even be caused by
some medications prescribed for
completely unrelated conditions
such as high blood pressure. Age
and handicaps can cause func-
tional problems including re-
duced bladder holding capabil-
ities or the inability to walk to a
restroom once nature calls.
"The important thing for
anyone with an incontinence
problem to understand is that
help is available", emphasized
Dr. Pintauro. Remedies for this
disorder can range from merely
adjusting the patient's medica-
tion to retraining in how to void
their system. Pelvic exercises can
also be used to strengthen the
pelvic muscles that support the
bladder and sphincter. Medica-
tions can also be prescribed to
treat this problem directly. In
some cases new surgical tech-
niques, such as the implantation
of an artificial sphincter, can be
"What you have to remember,"
Dr. Pintauro continues, "is not
to give up in your quest for help.
It may take several tries to
arrive at the right combination of
treatment options to allow you to
regain an active and satisfying

Federation Helps Provide Moving Experience When ,
=Judaica High School Students Join in
Ten lucky students from Fort
Lauderdale s Judaica High School
were chosen to take part in a
"March of the Living trip to
Poland's concentration camps
followed by six days of celebration
in Israel.
Close to 1,500 youths from all
over the world and 60 from South
Florida took part in the "March,"
and they came back lamenting of
the destruction of the Jewish
community in Poland, but imbued
with the spirit of the Jewish
people of Israel.
Sharon Horowitz, principal of
Ft. Lauderdale's Judaica High
School, accompanied the students
on the trip and talked about their
many experiences, from the lows
to the highs. The Central Agency
For Jewish Education adminis-
tered the program.
The first stop on the trip before
Poland was Budapest, Hungary.
The group met with the heads of
the Jewish community in
Budapest, ate in soup kitchens,
and toured Dohan synagogue
the only standing synagogue in
Budapest. The students also
visited the community cemetery,
where there was a memorial
square dedicated to the 800,000
Jews from Hungary who died in
the concentration camps. Despite
the destruction and deaths, today
there has been a rebirth of
Judaism in Budapest, with a
growing Jewish community of
In the backward and repressed
country of Poland, the students
realized the extent of the death of
a once vibrant Jewish people here.
It was even more apparent as they

visited the concentration camps of
Treblinka, Auschwitz, Birkenau,
and Maidenek.
Then on Yom Haahoa, the 1,500
students from around the world
gathered at the gates of
Auschwitz, to make the trek from
Auschwitz to Birkenau, the same
march that the Jewish people
were forced to make to their
deaths 45 years ago.
Sharon Horowitz described it:
"We walked only two miles that
day, our March of the Living ..
Forty-five years ago our people
walked this route to their deaths.
We walked through hell, but we're
here to tell the world .

of the trip was also a joyful cele-
bration of life in Israel.
Horowitz says, "Coming from
the visit to the concentration
camps in Poland, the students
realized how important Israel is
and how much the Jewish people
need Israel."
At the Jewish Federation's
annual meeting held recently, the
students spoke to community
leaders telling them that they will

"... set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
(Exodus 33:3)
An early Egyptian town, not far
from present day Cairo, was once
a thriving Jewish area. Fostat,
Egypt, during the years of 900-
1200 of the Common Era, is
believed to have been the center
of the entire Mediterranean
Jewish Community. It was there
that thousands of religious docu-
ments, buried for centuries, were
discovered in 1752.
Jewish books, papers, and
letters, containing G-d's name are
often stored for future burial. In
Fostat, these artifacts were
hidden in a storehouse, called a
'Geniza', of an ancient synagogue.
From time to time various
scholars have recognized the
importance of this discovery and
attempted to analyze its signifi-
cance. The most important
research was undertaken in the
early 1900's by Solomon Schecter,
who brought almost the entire
collection to England for study.

Fly-In at Tallahassee
A contingent of 100 members
from Jewish Federations all over
Florida gathered in Tallahassee
for the annual Jewish Federation
Fly-In held on May 25.
Representing the Fort Lauder-
dale Federation at the meetings
were Esther Cannon, Rabbi David
Gordon, attorney Martin Lipnack,
and Joel Telles, Federation CRC
director. Rabbi Mark Gross of
Temple Beth Orr delivered the
invocation at the day's Senate
Bernie Friedman, executive
director of the Florida Association
of Jewish Federations, put the
day's programming together,
which included meetings with
state legislators, agency heads,
and other officials.
The Fly-In served to let our
legislators know that funding for
local programs for the needy has
been greatly appreciated and that
continued funding is necessary to
ensure the survival and growth of
these vital programs.
The group who attended from
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale met with State
Senator Peter Weinstein and
Representatives Norman Ostrau
and Peter Deutsch. They were
also addressed by Jeff Berkowitz,
chairman of the Florida State
Association of Legislative Affairs
Committee of the Florida Associa-
tion of Jewish Federations.
In addition, the entire contin-
gent was addressed by State
Representatives Fred Lippman
and Elaine Bloom, and State
Senators Jack Gordon and Ken

Jewish past.
Translators of the Geniza docu-
ments were surprised to find
confirmation of the significant
position women held in the Jewish
community from the ninth to the
thirteenth centuries. Many letters
were found, written by women,
referring to life in Iraq, Tunisia,
Palestine, Libya, and Kairouan. In
addition to their household chores,
these women wrote of their work
outside the home. Marriage
contracts, found in the collection,
stated whether a wife's earnings
belonged to her, her husband, or
were to be used for clothing.
According to these papers some
women worked as midwives and
doctors, others were teachers in
girls' schools. As textile
merchants or textile brokers, they
occasionally visited other women
in their homes, to sell fabrics and
other goods. Contrary to modern
belief, Jewish women of the time
seemed to be very well educated
... as revealed by their own
correspondence. There is even
ample evidence to show that there
were several women scribes.
These centuries-old documents
prove that women of early Jewish
communities made their own
wills, and dedicated Torah scrolls.
Even then, they contributed large
sums of money, in their own
names, to various Jewish causes
and regularly headed committees
for building and repairing synago-
The will of one woman named
"Wuhsha", reveals some details
of a remarkable life of prestige
and wealth. Not content with a
simple Jewish funeral, Wuhsha
stipulated that she wanted
"cantors who will walk behind the
coffin, each one to be paid
according to his rank and excel-
lence." She also left extremely
large bequests to benefit several
Jewish philanthropies and reli-
gious causes. During her lifetime,
Wuhsha had been a successful
banker and a broker. She was so
highly regarded as a business
woman in 1098, that she appeared
as a witness in court (In spite of
the Talmudic objection to women
as reliable witnesses).
The scholarship of women was
then, as now, a heritage passed on
from generation to generation.

mother, addressed to her sister in
Fostat and found in the Geniza,
contained the following:
"My most urgent request
to you, if God the Exalted
indeed decrees my death,
is to take care of my little
daughter and make
efforts to give her an
education, although I
know that I am asking
for something unreason-
able, as there is not
enough money for main-
tenance, let alone educa-
tion. However, she had a
model in our mother, the
saint.. ."
Perhaps, in the not too distant
future, scholars will publish addi-
tional translations of the papers
found in the Geniza and we shall
learn more of our wonderful and
inspiring history.

something so tiny made it so big.

As a special part of the program, Dr. Abraham Gittelson,
director of Education for the Central Agency for Jewish
Education gave a D'var Torah (a relevant explanation of a classic
Jewish text). The D'var Torah focused on the centrality of
community in Jewish life. After Dr. Gittelson's presentation, he
demonstrated how a D'var Torah is developed so that members of
the Board would be able to deliver it themselves in forthcoming
meetings. Alvera Gold stated that Pearl Reinstein will do the
D'var Torah at the next Board Meeting in September.
Colleges to Establish
Israel Institute
The Florida Legislature is
currently considering passage of a
bill to establish an international
education linkage with the State
of Israel that would be jointly
administered by Broward
Community College and Florida
Atlantic University.
Broward Community College
has participated in a study-abroad
program in Israel for the past
twelve years through the College
Consortium for International
Studies. More than 150 students
have taken advantage of several
living and learning experiences in
Israel, since its inception, and
over 90 percent of them have
elected to stay in Israel for a full
academic year.
Passage of the bill would allow
BCC and FAU to build on the past
12 years experience, and add
appropriate components to the
Firogram with funding the estab-
ishment of a formal Institute
would bring.
Six Institutes have been estab-
lished by the legislature in the
state of Florida with the purpose
to assist in the development of
stronger educational, economic,
and social ties between Florida
and strategic foreign countries.
Official linkage institutes now
exist between Florida and Brazil,
Costa Rica, the Caribbean, China,
Japan and Canada.
The entire Broward Delegation
has supported the creation and
passage of this bill, but Represen-
tative Norman Ostrau, Senator
Ken Jenne and Representative
Fred Lippman have been the
prime movers. Willis Holcombe,
President of BCC, has been
working closely with these three
gentlemen in support of the bill.
BCC is uniquely qualified to
co-administer this Institute
through its participation in the
CCIS education program with
Israel for the past 12 years. In
addition, Dr. Benjamin Popper,
English Professor at BCC is
developing a Judaic students
program at BCC. BCC already
has a significant number of
courses dealing with Jewish
culture and Jewish history.
Students in this program would
benefit greatly from the enhanced
learning opportunities the estab-
lishment of the Institute would
BCC# is very excited by the
prospect of being designated by
the Legislature to administer this
Institute with FAU. Broward
Community College needs your
help in getting the Israel Institute
approved by Florida's Legislature
during this legislative session.
Please write Tallahassee and let
the Legislators know that you
support the BCC FAU Israel
For more information about
study in Israel, please contact Ms.
Miriam Markus at 475-6757/475-
6637, and for information about
the Judaic Studies program,
please contact Dr. Benjamin
Popper at 475-6733/475-6558.

Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies
Creating A Legacy
For the 21st Century
Joel Reinstein, Chairman
Today's Woman An Up-To-Date
Estate Plan For You
It is said women control most of
the nation's wealth. This is very
true today. Today's woman must
protect all that she has worked so
hard to accumulate. Today's
woman has assumed an expanded
role in business and finance with
increasing leadership roles. A
plan for your estate will give you
the necessary protection. An
estate plan is essential whether
you are married, divorced,
widowed, single with children who
are minors or young adults, or
with no children. Whether you
consider your estate to be large or
small, a plan is necessary.
Estate Planning
Planning your estate involves
determining who you want to
receive your assets, and when to
pass these to your relatives, heirs,
friends and favorite charities with
the least possible cost. The main
tools of estate planning are your
Will and your Trust. Planning
your estate involves many consid-
1) How title to assets is held.
2) Whether (and what) property
should be owned in joint tenancy.
3) Whether to allow assets to be
probated, or avoid probate with
the use of Trust.
4) How best to use life insur-
5) Planning ways to reduce
federal estate taxes.
How Do Yon Plan An Estate
Here are abbreviated defini-
tions of a will and a trust.
The Will This instrument
directs how property is distri-
buted after a person s death. It
can be revised, or revoked
entirely, at any time during the
person s life.
The Trust It is an estate
planning document like a will. But
unlike a will, a trust is not
required to distribute property
outright. It permits the trustee to
either make payments of income
only, or payments of income and
some principal, if necessary. If it
is in the best interest of a benefic-
iary at any particular time, the
trustee may also accumulate
income and then make distribu-
tions of the property at a later
How a Living Trust Can Fit Into
Your Giving and Financial Plans
How Does It Work
There are three parties to a
trust: the trustor, the trustee, and
the beneficiary. The trustor
creates the trust. The trustee
receives legal title to assets trans-
ferred to the trust and is respon-
sible for the management of those
assets. The beneficiary receives
the benefit of the trust. There are
two kinds of beneficiaries: the
Income Beneficiary and the
Remainderman. The income bene-
ficiary has the use of the assets
placed in trust, or the income
those assets produce, for his or
her lifetime. The remainderman
will eventually receive all of the
assets from the trust, but not until
the income beneficiary's lifetime
interest is finished.
Since the trustor creates the
trust, he or she has absolute
control over how the trust will be
managed, who will receive the
benefits, and when and how those
benefits will be distributed by the
trustee. The trustor can be, and
usually is, one of the beneficiaries
.. MUD

of the trust. The trustor also can
be, and often is, the trustee of the
Kinds of Trusts
Trusts can be classified in four
1. Revocable a trust which can
be changed or completely revoked
any time the trustor wants to end
the trust and take back the assets.
2. Irrevocable a trust which is
permanent and once created can
not be changed or terminated by
the trustor.
3. Testamentary a trust
created by a person's Will.
4. Living a trust created
during the trustor's lifetime.
A revocable living trust can be
modified or terminated by the
trustor at any time. Consider an
example of how it can be used.
Mrs. Cohen would like to make a
major gift to the Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies but she is
concerned that a large charitable
gift would endanger her financial
security. She has a $50,000.00
savings certificate which she
plans to leave to the Foundation
by her Will. Of course, if some
unforeseen emergency arises, it
will be there for her to use. She
also needs the income which that
certificate is producing.
Mrs. Cohen can transfer the
savings certificate into a revoc-
able living trust, keep the income
for her lifetime and have the
ability to take back the $60,000.00
if any need ever arises. Upon her
death the savings certificate will
go to the Foundation just as she
had planned under her Will. She
will avoid federal estate taxes on
the certificate just as she would
have under the original plan, but
by using the revocable living trust
she will avoid probate.
Thus, Mrs. Cohen will have the
satisfaction of making a major gift
to the Foundation, but continue to
receive the income for the rest of
her life. She will also have the
security of being able to use the
trust for her own benefit at any
Consider a Charitable Remainder
Advantages It will provide a
lifetime income to you and your
It provides a current federal
income tax deduction. Appreci-
ated assets can be used with a
capital gains saving to you. Upon
your death a remainder amount
goes to the Foundation and you
may designate your charitable
Capital Replacement Trust to
Provide for Your Estate
It is also possible to use part of
the savings generated by the
income tax charitable deduction to
purchase life insurance for an
irrevocable Life Insurance Trust
to replace the donated assets. The
Trust can be drafted so that the
insurance proceeds may pass to
your heirs tax-free.
Charitable Trusts: Benefits to
Your Jewish Community
Income generated by the Foun-
dation trusts and other endow-
ments help support a wide range
of programs and services for the
benefit of the Jewish community,
including those provided by the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale.
A Final Word
The Foundation suggests that
you consult with your legal or tax
adviser when considering the
establishment of a charitable
trust. The Foundation's Legal and
Tax Committee is also available

connection almost as soon as they
Offir began his volunteer career
at the Center with his offer to help
at the Giant Superraffle, Fall '87.
He then scheduled himself for the
Center's Tuesday evening Bingo.
In January, Offir was joined by
great numbers of his fellow
Israelis in the area who helped
produce a most magnificent JCC
evening the Yaffa Yarkoni
concert. The Israeli star had her
start singing for the soldiers in
the 60's and since that time has
been beloved in her land. Yarkoni
also attracts large audiences all
over the world and esoeciallv this
night of January 23. Offir labored
for many hours with a committee
who prepared, cooked and served
Felafel, Humus and all kinds of
delectable Israeli salads and deli-
cacies for a greatly pleased crowd
of 400.
In advance of the "Israel 40"
celebration, Offir took on a major
job helping design and build the
Israel Bond
Efforts in June
Hundreds of Rabbis and major
synagogues throughout the
United States and Canada joined
in "Operation IVRI/Unity," a
special Israel Bond campaign to
mobilize an outstanding Indi-
vidual Variable Rate Issue (IVRI)
response and to speed cash
payments for all current bond
subscriptions to Israel.
The announcement was made by
Sy Syms of New York, National
Chairman of the Israel Bond
As part of the June effort,
Rabbis or congregational leaders
in cooperating synagogues will
host meetings for $l,000-and-over
Bond buyers to explain the attrac-
tive features of the popular IVRI
Bond and to encourage purchases
and payments.
At the same time, Mr. Syms
explained, all local Bond
campaigns throughout the United
States and Canada will be
devoting themselves in June to
turning all unpaid Bond commit-
ments into cash "so that Israel
can receive vital proceeds for the
nation's continued economic

15 teenagers, plus the help of
several adults. They did all the
building after sundown on a
Saturday evening, completing the
installation in the middle of the
night. "Just like the early settlers
did before '48," says Offir. "This
was the only way they knew to
avoid detection by the Arabs."
For "Israel 40," he again
worked in the kitchen, set up
booths, delivered merchandise
and was there "whenever you
needed him," said the Independ-
ence Day organizers.
Offir's latest involvement was
the exceptional amount of work he
did for the "Up, Up and Away"
Auction May 17. He again trans-
ported, set up and even donated
items for the auction block.
"I must do it all to help keep the
Jewish community growing. We
must keep Judaism alive for our
children," he says.

Printing Salesman, working for a
local printing firm. In Israel, he

In the army, he served as a
parachutist for some time, having
23 jumps to his credit. He fought
in the Yom Kippur War. And from

tours of duty in Athens,
