ROME A leading
Italian Jewish journalist,
Arrigo Levi, has responded
forcefully to a recent article
in the Jesuit magazine,
Civilta Cattolica, which
implied a comparison
between the destruction of
Jews in the Holocaust and
harsh measures used by
Israel to suppress the Pales-
tinian uprising.
It was a very special day in
the Jewish community of Fort
Lauderdale as-19 members of
the fifth grade elementary
class of the David Posnack
Hebrew Day School, a major
agency of the Federation/UJA
family, took part in graduation
exercises.
Jewish Federation leaders
including vice president Daniel
Cantor, secretary Sol
Shulman, and executive
director Ken Bierman, along
with day school educators,
parents, family members and
day school students gathered
for a very moving program
and Torah service.
The graduating class played
a very active role in the
graduation program. The fifth
graders recited in turn a "wish
list" for the day school staff
which elicited laughter from
the audience gathered in the
day school cafetorium. The
students then performed
ro-ngs, some with
choreography, regarding the
meaning of this special day,
Day School president Ray
Finkel and director Fran
Merenstein
including an original number
written hy class member Jill
Shulman.
Jill Shulman's grandmother,
Mania Tyrkiel, related, "Jill is
very good in Hebrew and she
received a wonderful educa-
tion at the David Posnack
Hebrew Day School. My
husband and I are Holocaust
survivors, and so this is a very
special moment for us."
The graduating class also
performed an original skit
about where each of them
might be in the year 2008.
Occupations picked ranged
from a comedian to a medical
doctor.
Daniel Cantor, was called
upon to present the diplomas
to the graduating class of '88.

In the Spotlight HIAS Plans For Emigration Change
More Soviet Jews to Arrive in America
Amid indication that
Soviet officials are
honoring more invitations
for Soviet Jews to reunite
with their families in the
U.S., HIAS, the Hebrew
CJF's Shosaana Cardin
Greets Newly Arrived
Soviet Youngster
Immigrant Aid Society, a
beneficiary of the Federat-
tion/UJA, has begun
mobilizing the American
Jewish community behind
an effort "to test the
waters," its executive vice
president, Karl D. Zuck-
erman, has announced.
Local Federation
leaders Harold Oshry,
president, Barbara
Wiener, executive vice
president and Morris
Furman are National
HIAS Board members
who are involved in the
policy making decisions.
"We expect that the
Soviets will begin to honor
American invitations on
an equal footing as those
from Israel," Zuckerman
said, adding that such a
development would
request a change over the
past, when American invi-
tations rarely drew posi-
tive responses. He also
noted the step would
establish "a two-track
system for the emigration
of Soviet Jews" one
based on Israeli invitations
and the other based on the
American letters and
said Israeli leaders have
already expressed
approval of creating a
second track.
Since January, about
300 Soviet Jews have
received permission to
leave the Soviet Union
based on the American
invitations, HIAS officials
observed more than
triple the 84 Jews who
received permission to
leave on basis of American
invitations last year and
more than 10 times the 26
Jews who left on the
strength of such letters in
1986. Of the roughly 300
who have received permis-
sion to emigrate this year,
HIAS figures indicate that
nearly 200 have already
left the Soviet Union and
the remainder are
expected to leave in the
near future.
"We're now urging
Jewish Family Services
and Jewish federations
throughout the U.S. to
begin the processing of
invitations and to track
their progress once they
are submitted to Soviet
officials," Zuckerman
continued. "Our effort has
been universally endorsed

completed five or more years
of schooling, and Hebrew Day
School president Ray Finkel
should be happy because of the
progress this school has
made."
Hebrew Day School presi-
dent Ray Finkel added, "I am
proud of all these kids. It is a
joy to be in this new building
and to see our first graduating
in this beautiful cafetorium.
All of these efforts have
ensured the continuation of
Judaism for years to come in
this community, and it is very
exciting to see so many Feder-
ation leaders taking part in the
future of our day school."

At the Helm of CRC in '88-1989
Rabbi Howard Addision of Temple Beth Israel

bias in the media and combatting
anti-Israel propaganda in general.

West Bank and Gaza have hurt

r
At the Jewish Federation
Community Relations Committee
meeting in June, Rabbi Howard
Addison of Temple Beth Israel in
Sunrise was introduced as the
new chairman of the important
committee.
Rabbi Addision replaces newly-
elected Federation Executive vice
president Barabra K Wiener, who
did an outstanding job during the
past year as CRC chairperson.
Close to 40 people attended the
meeting, an interesting one
because of the words of guest
speaker Bertram Korn, Jr. Korn
is the eastern regional director of
CAMERA The Committee For
Accuracy in Middle East
Reporting in America.
CAMERA is a non-profit grass-
Rabbi Howard Addison
cally, and media reporting of the
situation has fueled the fires of
anti-Semitism around the world,
said Korn. Anti-Semitism is
currently on the rise in the U.S. as
well.
Mr. Korn stated, "We have a
serious problem, not only with the
media but with anti-Israel propa-
ganda, which is reflected in Media
coverage of what is going on with
the uprising."
CAMERA seeks to combat anti-
Israel bias in three ways by
mobilizing people in local commu-
nities all over the U.S. to respond
to the bias in appropriate ways, to
serve as a full-time professional
information office on Israel and
Middle East issues, and to put the
informational war onto the
agenda of the established Jewish
community and friends of Israel
outside the community.
Korn added, "If we can sit back
and allow the name of Israel to be
delegitimized in the minds of the
American public and the Media, it
will have obvious negative conse-
quences for Jewish fund-raising."
Jewish Teachers Attend
Summer Seminars
While the summer may be a
time of relaxation for most
teachers, selected Jewish
educators in the synagogue and
day schools of North Broward and
South Palm Beach counties will
devote their time and energy this
summer to attending educational
conferences throughout the
United States and in Israel.
Participating in the Conference
on Alternatives in Jewish Educa-
tion taking place in Jerusalem
from July 29 through Aug. 5 will
be Moshe Ezry and Eunice Morres
of Temple Beth Orr; Nancy
Senior, Temple B'nai Torah in
I Mossowitz, Donna Klein Hebrew
2 Academy in Boca; and member of
*7 the staff of the Central Agency
jfor Jewish Education, Dr.
Abraham J. Gittelson, Sharon
Horowitz and Caren Weintraub.
The conference will attract over
1,000 educators from the United
States and England as well as
Israel, and will include a wide
variety of seminars, workshops,
Torah study sessions, and keynote
sessions as well as special educa-
tional trips throughout Israel.
Among the content areas
focused upon at the conference
will be Israel and Zionism,
Hebrew Language and Litera-
ture, Parent, Family and Adult
Education, informal Jewish
education, Jewish Living and
Spiritually, the Arts and School
Administration and Leadership.
In addition resources centers
will include a teacher resource
area, media, computers and
educational materials exhibits of
publishers from both Israel and
from the United States. Sharon
Horowitz noted that "CAJE will
be an unequaled opportunity to
secure the latest materials for the
Teacher Center in our communi-
ties and to gain new ideas and
approaches to enrich the educa-
tional programming in every one
in our local schools."
Attending the Yad Ben Zvi
Israel Studies Institute will be
Stanley Cohen, Beth Israel
Educational Director and Judaic
Coordinator for the David
Posnack Hebrew Day School,
together with Sharon Horowitz.
The Institute will focus on the
historical, religious, cultural,
economic, and cultural elements
of the city of Jerusalem from its
earliest times to the present. It
will include a variety of on-site
trips to archaeological digs,
historical settlements and present
day institutions in and around
Jerusalem.
Back in the United States, Tirza
Arad, Educational Director of
Temple Kol Ami and Arlene
Solomon, Director of Music partic-
ipate in the CAJE Institute in San
Diego where hundreds of
educators from all over the United
States will congregate for work-
shops, seminars and experiential
learning.
At that Institute Dr. Gittelson
will deliver three major presenta-
tion on various aspects of Jewish
education.
Finally, at another CAJE Insti-
tute in Milwaukee, Robin Eisen-
berg, Educational Director of
Temple Beth El will speak at a
number of sessions including a
description of the special family
education pilot project being
conducted at her synagogue.
Dr. Gittelson noted that
"continuing professional growth
is the hallmark of the committed
teacher. Our communities can be
justifiably proud of those teachers
who have chosen to spend a good
part of the summer in studying
and enhancing their knowledge
and competencies in Jewish
Education."

HIAS Plans For Emigration Change ..
More Soviet Jews to
Arrive in America
Continued from Page 1
by these organizations,
which are now gearing up
to meet the challenges
ahead."
HIAS has beefed up its
own staff to assist with the
preparation of such letters
in New York, a city with
the largest concentration
of ex-Soviet Jews in the
U.S., and the United
Jewish Appeal/Federation
of New York is planning to
assist, similarly, through
community-based agencies
in several of the boroughs.
HIAS will provide training
to these agencies,
according to Dail Stolow,
HIAS' Director of U.S.
Operations.
Stolow said HIAS has
been working with Jewish
agencies across the
country that are now
preparing the invitations
by providing detailed
instructions on how to
complete the letters.
Since the Soviet Govern-
ment usually takes
anywhere from a few
weeks to several months
to respond to "Letters of
Invitation," Zukerman
said it is still "too early to
have any feedback right
now on what our expanded
effort might be
achieving." But he added
that HIAS officials "would
be watching the situation
very closely in the next
few months to see if the
number of invitations
honored by the Soviets
continues to grow."
Zuckerman said HIAS
leaders have been in
contact with State Depart-
ment officials over this
issue and other possible
changes in the Soviet
system of emigration.
Other changes might
include allowing Soviet
Jews to choose their
destination in Moscow,
rather than in Vienna, and
eliminating the Austrian
capital ad a transit stop on
their way to the U.S. or
Israel steps that would
be "more than welcomed
by the American Jewish
community and the (U.S.)
State Department,"
according to Zukerman.
"These changes would
make life easier on all
those involved in the
process," Zukerman
continued, pointing out
that they would shave
several weeks off the time
Soviet Jews have to spend
in transit and save the
U.S. Government several
million dolalrs in transpor-
tation and maintenance
costs. In addition,
Zukerman said, Jewish
agencies in the U.S. would
know earlier about which
Jews were planning to
come here and thus have
more time to prepare for
their arrival.
Until now, all Soviet
Jews receiving permission
to emigrate have been
flown on Israeli visas to
Vienna, where they are
met by representatives of
the Jewish Agency for
Israel. Those choosing to
resettle in the U.S. are
registered by HIAS in
Vienna and then taken to
Rome, where they
currently spend six weeks
and where HIAS' staff
assists with the paperwork
required by the U.S. Immi-
gration and Naturalization
Service for entering the
U.S. It is at this point
where migrants bound for
the U.S. work with casew-
orkers to develop plans for
resettlement in Jewish
communities throughout
the country.
"From a purely migra-
tion point of view, the new
system would be far better
than the one now in place,
and HIAS urges the Soviet
Government to go ahead
with steps that would
implement it," Zukerman
said.
HIAS is the interna-
tional migration agency of
the organized Jewish
Community. HIAS is a
beneficiary of the United
Jewish Appeal/Federation
of New York and Jewish
federations across the
country.

JAP-Baiting By Any Other Name
Anti-Semitism is no less
destructive when it is fed unknow-
ingly by Jews. Misogyny is equally
as bad when it is practiced by
women Together it is a
combination that spawns a hatred
of Jewish women.
A boutique in Coral Springs,
Florida, is shocked to And that it
is being held as an example of
misogynous anti-Semitism. The
shop's name is JAP spelled back-
wards .. 'PAJ'. The owner and
her (male) partner are both
Jewish. She claims to be "proud to
be a Jewish princess". Several
Rabbis, prominent local
community leaders, and the
southern area director of the ADL
have personally spoken to the
store's owners in an attempt to
have them change the name.
Refusing to give any credibility to
these opinions, the two partners
claim that they are "selling
merchandise and do not think
anyone should be offended".
Unfortunately much of the
community is unaware of the
vicious consequences of JAP-
Baiting, although many newspa-
pers, magazines and newsletters
have reported the phenomenon.
Donahue and Oprah have featured
entire programs on this topic.
'Lilith a national Jewish
women's magazine, devoted a
complete issue towards coverage
of the subject. ADL in its
February bulletin says, "It is
indeed unfortunate that some
Jews continue to engage in 'JAP'-
oriented humor and self-
denigration, unwittingly
providing license for a form of
anti-Semitic expression."
Feeding into the stereotype,
this store features "Jap-dollar"
discount coupons and sells glitzy
clothes with "Jap Country Club"
emblazoned on the front in glitter.
Coral Springs, Florida, is more
than 70% non-Jewish. In a town
that can claim a recent history of
ami-Jewish cults in the local high
school, the insensitive attitude of
PAJ is particularly offensive.
Perhaps the proprietors of PAJ
should read the July issue of 'New
Woman' magazine, page 105. In
an article called, "Death of a
Jewish American Princess",
Shirley Frondorf reports the case
of a murdered Scottsdale woman,
Elana Steinberg. Her husband,
Steve, was a known compulsive
gambler. Convinced by an
attorney, who put the victim on
trial, the judge and jury released
the slayer. They had no trouble
accepting the idea that Elana was,
"a 'Jewish American Princess'
who drove her husband to
gambling and murder". The
defense lawyer called the unfor-
tunate victim a 'bitch' in the
closing arguments and jurors
were totally convinced that she fit
every one of their expected ster-
eotypes. One juror told of feeling
that the defendant was, "a soul
crying out to be converted to
Christianity". Judge Marilyn
Riddell (who wears a large conspi-
cuous cross) gave the jury only
two options first degree murder
or acquittal. To the jury there was
only one ... the JAP had to die,
therefore her killer should be
acquitted.
On page 32 of this same maga-
zine, an article by Sue Browder
addresses "The Status Clash".
Jews are never mentioned, yet the
piece indicates that a variety of
people seek to enjoy the material
things life has to offer. Those
Jews who patronize PAJ should'
rethink the values and ideas they
are perpetuating. What will it
take for the proprietors of this
shop to realize that a change of
name is not "giving in"? It merely
removes a thoroughly distasteful
image from their store. Mean-
while, they hurt, insult, and
demean all of us Men and
Women Jew and Gentile by
continuing to feed into misogyny
... and anti-Semitism.

the need to focus on Florida's
human resources in the next legis-
lative session, and emphasized
Broward County's special
concerns.
Gustafson is also expected to
work closely with North
Broward's Representatives to
provide the needed funds for
Jewish welfare and social services
programs, including a housing
project for seniors that is sched-
uled to be built in West Sunrise,
and funding for a senior Adult
Center.
During the meeting, Federation
vice president Daniel Cantor
stressed the need for this senior
housing and day care project. The
project is expected to cost about
$6.5 million and construction
could begin as early as January of
next year.
Dan Cantor and Leo Goodman,
chairmen of the Federation's
Elderly Committee, along with
co-chairman Richard Finkelstein

services along with the housing
that this project will provide, and
we're going to need everyone's
help to see our dreams come to
fruition. We envision this as the

Holocaust and Slavery
By STANLEY M. LEFC0
In our interview of 28 freshmen at Morehouse College in late
1987, the fourth question we posed concerned their knowledge of
the Holocaust and their feeling about it.
Many of the students noted that it was a horrible event for the
Jewish people while at the same time paralleling it to the
suffering of blacks during slavery. A typical response, yet more
detailed than most of the others, was given by a 17 year old from
Chicago, who hopes to become a corporate attorney: "The
Holocaust was the event which involved Hitler's imprisonment
and murder of the Jews during WWII. Because of their race, they
were sent to concentration camps where they were ruthlessly
murdered. The Holocaust, though, is still not as terrifying as the
Middle Passage, the shipment of millions of Africans to America.
Millions died due to unsanitary conditions, disease, and suicide."
Another student from the Bronx somewhat disagreed, "I think
the Holocaust was during W.W. II and Hitler. I feel the Jews had
it worse than the blacks during the slavery times and I hate to
hear things like that. They get me real angry." A fellow student
concurred that it was the ''worst immoral act in the history of
mankind," but also noted that millions of Blacks have suffered.
Describing it as "extremely harsh and manic," another student
reflected, "It was a travesty, but so was slavery." Still another
answered, "It was wrong, but no worse than the African
Holocaust." a 19 year old from Pittsburgh wrote, "It was, indeed,
one of the most heinous acts of history. However, no less evil was
the treatment of Blacks from Africa before slavery. There were in
excess of twelve million killed in being transported and being
disciplined on plantations."
A student from Baltimore, whose career objective is to be an
entrepreneur, answered, "I feel as though the Holocaust was the
second heinous crime of recent centuries (1700's until now). The
slave trades and the rape of Africa as a continent was the first."
Two students saw Blacks as next in line after the extermination
of the Jews. Responded another student from Chicago, "I
understood that Hitler was trying to make a pure race and that
Blacks would be next. I personally hated the killings." Echoing
this sentiment was a student from Kansas City, who wrote, "I
hold a lot of deep feelings because they will try to do this to Blacks
soon."
Tired of the publicity, a 19 year old from Brooklyn emphasized,
"I wish it had never happened, but I think it is thrown out in the
media too much. Black people went through a much longer
struggle and that isn't talked about as much/'
Another student from Los Angeles dispassionately concluded,
"It was an unfortunate event. AU people of all ethnic races have
had their unfortunate event."
The rest described it as the result of ignorance, a dehumanizing
event, a sad situation, unjust and crucially wrong, a horrible act,
and genocide.
A strong cord of bitterness could be detected in those who
stressed slavery. At the same time one sensed an undertone of
resentment, in some instances bordering on anger.
If Jews want Blacks to understand and be sensitive to the
Holocaust and what this means to Jews, it is apparent that they in
turn must appreciate the sufferings of Blacks during slavery. It is
apparent, at least among this group, that they do not want the
suffering of their people ignored. Both camps in the end need to
learn more about the other, which hopefully will sensitize both to
each other's legacies.

tion that Mubarak Arab political
activist who holds American citi-
zenship, is a dedicated disciple of
Mohandas Gandhi and Martin
Luther King Jr., and that he is
committed to the philosophy,
practice and support of non-
violence, and to Arab-Israeli
reconciliation and peaceful coex-
istence.
This belief is a serious miscon-
ception, based on lack of famili-
arity with his fundamental views.
A close examination of his key
statements to the Arab media
not usually studied by outsiders or
non-specialists reveals that:
1. He does not oppose violence,
considering it a legitimate means
of advancing Palestinian Arab
political goals.
2. He views non-violence as a
strategy to complement violence
in the Palestinian Arab uprising.
3. He explicitly supports
the PLO. His strategy of non-
violence is not designed to
supplant the PLO's "armed
struggle," meaning terrorism,
and he does not reject its doctrine
of and aspiration to the ultimate
liquidation of Israel.
Mr. Awad's underlying views
have been spelled out explicitly
and unambiguously in his prin-
cipal work "Non-Violent resis-
tance: A strategy for the occupied
territories," an article in the
authorative Journal of Palestine
Studies, Volume 12, No. 2
(Winter, 1984), reprinted by New
Society Publishers.
The following are excerpts from
that article:
The tactic of non-violence
"does not determine the methods
open to the Palestinians on the
outside (of the Israeli-controlled
areas); nor does it constitute a
rejection of the concept of armed
struggle. Neither does it rule out
the possibility that the struggle on
the inside may turn into an armed
struggle at a later stage."
"First, non-violence is a total
and serious struggle, nothing
short of a real war. Second, non-
violent struggle is not negative or
positive. It is an active, affirma-
tive operation, a form of mobile
warfare."
"It is not necessary that a
non-violent strategy be politically
moderate. The non-violent move-
ment need not prefer solution
based on a two-state solution over
a secular democratic state in all of
Palestine."
For those who are unfamiliar
with its clear implications, the
term "secular democratic state in
all of Palestine" is the common
PLO formula for the liquidation of
Israel.
"Non-violence can be success-
fully utilized, at least in part, by
individuals who are not neces-
sarily committed to non-violence
and who may choose, at a
different stage, to engage in
armed struggle."
"There is the instinctive need
of demonstrators to draw the
Israeli army into a confrontation
with them. The most commonly
used presently are to burn tires,
throw stones, or set up road-
blocks.
"Palestinians ... can attempt
to block roads, prevent communi-
cations, cut electricity, telephone
and water lines, prevent the
movement of equipment and in
other ways obstruct the govern-
ment in carrying out its unjust
plans."
In the context of a wave of
violence, such acts are dangerous
'''.................. .. v
authorized to speak on behalf of
the Palestinian people ... As for
ourselves, our activities comple
ment those of the PLO."
In Mubarak Awad's view, all
means are legitimate in the
struggle for "the great victory."
As his writings and statements
make clear, his chief criterion for
choosing one method over the
other at a given time is expedi-
ency, not moralilty.
NEW YORK (UJA) Three
high United Jewish Appeal offic-
ials have returned from Helsinki,
Finland, following a meeting with
Secretary of State George P.
Shultz at which the Secretary
affirmed strongly U.S. commit-
ment to Soviet Jews.
The three UJA board
chairman Martin F. Stein, UJA
Speakers Bureau chairman Anita
Gray and UJA Women's Young
Leadership Cabinet chairman
Amy N. Dean were among a
group of 40 American Jewish
leaders who met with Shultz on
the eve of the recent summit
between President Reagan and
Secretary General Mikhail Gorba-
chev of the Soviet Union. The
delegation was led by Morris
Abram, Chairman of the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major Amer-
ican Jewish Organizations and
included Barbara Stein, Martin
Stein's wife, also a leader in
various Jewish causes.
The group met with Shultz, in
btein;s words, "to emphasize that
promises made must be promises
kept to permit Soviet Jews to
emigrate or, if they wish to
remain, to live as Jews.
oiJte *"?* met with Shult2 for
bhabbat dinner in a Helsinki syna-
gogue. The meeting constituted
an historic moment in modern
rinnish Jewish history and
strengthened the 1,000-niembei
Finnish Jewish community. The
UJA leaders also spoke at public
events for Soviet Jews.
Ms. Gray spoke poignantly of
her pain this past April, during
her second visit to the Soviet
Union in ten years. "The more
things change, the more they stay
the same for Jews in the Soviet
Union," she said. "It's most
painful to visit Jews in the USSR
ten years later. What message do
you give them? Have hope? See
you in ten years'?"
Ms. Dean spoke movingly about
Inna Uspenskaya, 14 years in
refusal, who was denied permis-
sion to emigrate. Ms. Uspenskaya
had begun a hunger strike that
week in Moscow. "Her hunger
strike must not be in vain," Ms.
Dean admonished a rally. "Her
case demonstrates the violation
by the USSR of the Helsinki Final
Act" that says such persons would
be permitted to emigrate.
"We were not disappointed,"
Stein said following his arrival at
his home in Milwaukee.
"Secretary Shultz told us, 'We in
the adminstration will dig in. We
will never stop. We will never give
up. We will keep on working and
working' until aJl Soviet Jews who
wish to emigrate are permitted to
do so and until all those who wish
to remain in the Soviet Union are
permitted to live as Jews."

A Rock and a Hard Place
Syndicated columnist George Will has written that behind the
boys with stones in the Palestinian Arab uprising loom some big
battalions. Two articles in the Israeli press late last month
detailed growing strength in both the Syrian and Jordanian
militaries.
Military correspondent Dani Sadeh, in the May 30 issue of
Yediot Achronot, wrote that Israeli military experts believe "the
Syrian Army has achieved strategic parity with that part of the
IDF (Israel Defense Forces) allocated to the Syrian sector,
although not with the IDF as a whole." In the past 12 months,
Sadeh added, Syria completed "fortification work along the
Israeli border, complete with missile batteries, minefields, and
artillery trenches stretching ... all the way to Damascus."
Training has included "many offensive exercise The
soldiers hold combat drills, practice ways to surmount tank
obstacles, and train in rapid deployment on the battlefield."
Syrian divisional maneuvers could "easily be turned into a limited
battle against regular IDF units deployed along the Golan
Heights."
In addition, over the past few years "Syria has built up a large
army (more than 400,000 regulars, compared to 130,000 for
Israeli, purchased T-72's (Soviet tanks) and MIG-29's (advanced
Soviet combat aircraft), long-range missiles that can hit any
target in Israel, and highly accurate naval missiles." Sadeh also
mentioned Syria's acquisition of three more Soviet submarines,
bringing the total to sue (Israel plans to replace its three aging
subs) and Damascus reported its "intention of using nonconven-
tional weapons, like equipping their missiles with chemicals."
His sources did not say that Syria's "massive procurement"
meant that war was imminent. But they believed that the Hafez
Assad regime has reasons to consider launching at least a limited
military operation against Israel. These include:
Regaining the Golan Heights;
Friction between the Syrian Army and IDF in Lebanon; and
Hostility toward Israel as "almost the sole adhesive uniting
all the factions" under Assad.
Meanwhile, a May 25 article in the IDF magazine Bamakane
said "the Jordanian Army, especially the land forces, is consid-
ered the most modern and qualitative of all Arab armies." A
post-1973 reorganization led to "construction of a small, armored
and mobile army with great firepower."
Jordan's two armored divisions "are equipped with excellent
British tanks (Chieftains and upgraded Centurions) while the two
motorized divisions are equipped with high-quality U.S. tanks
(M-60 Al's and M-60 A3*s).rt The purchase of 24 U.S. Cobra
assault helicopters and hundreds of million of dollars worth of
British and French antitank missiles greatly improved the
Kingdom's antiarmor capability.
Fire control computer and advanced range-finding systems
plus U.S. Copperhead shells bolstered Jordan's "mostly
mobile" artillery, while the purchase of 12 Super Puma helicop-
ters doubled the special forces' combat 'air transport ability.
Acquisition of mobile Soviet-built systems improved air defense
as well.
And, "for the first time, the Jordanian Army procured, from
Britain, combat engineering means. This equipment included
minefield breaching means as well as assault bridging equipment.
The interesting feature of this equipment is its offensive nature."
Jordan's army "numbers about 90,000 soldiers" plus 35,000 to
40,000 reservists who have served two years in the regular army.
(Israel has more than 300,000 reservists. Syria more than
300,000).
Training continues to be mostly defensive, but the Jordanian
military defensive "could constitute, in one way or another, a
component in an Arab war coalition against Israel," Bamakane
concluded.
Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin noted recently that if, at
the end of the war with Iran, Iraq sent half its tank corps to join
Jordan and Syria, Israel would be facing more armor than in all
the armies of NATO.
This recurrent Israeli nightmare causes many to see the West
Bank (Judea and Samaria) as vital strategic depth. But in a
companion nightmare, failure to resolve the problems of the
territories leads to more violence, eventually providing a pretext
around which an Arab eastern front could coalesce.

Providing Their
Heartfelt Support
for Project Renewal
The Federation Women's Division has continued
to support Project Renewal in Israel through
generous gifts by many of its members.
Those who have given $2,500 or more over a five
year period to Project Renewal are presented with
a copy of the Ketubat Emunim, the Covenant of
Faithfulness. The covenant represents a commit-
ment by all Federation/UJA Women's Divisions
throughout the U.S. to help underwrite the cost of
human service programs of Project Renewal.
The money donated by Jewish Federations
provides support for many programs in Renewal
neighborhoods, including adult literacy classes,
homemaker services for needy families, mother-
child interaction training, pre-kindergarten and
day care programs, nutrition classes for mothers,
and meals for students and seniors.
The Ketubah, a lithograph done in eight colors,
is reproduced from a collage by Israeli artist
Pinchas Shaar. The original art is now displayed in
the Prime Minister's office.
The chairman of Federation's Project Renewal
city of Kfar Saba is president of Alvera Gold.
Those members of the Women's Division who
are to be congratulated for having purchased
Ketubot include: Phyllis Chudnow, Mickey Cohen,
Gladys Daren, Lee Dreiling, Carol Effrat, Roz

$1.5 Million for '88 Federation/UJA Drive ...
The Women's Division
Leads the Way for World Jewry
The Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale once again
proved the importance of a
woman's individual gift during the
1988 Federation/UJA campaign
by raising $1.5 million under the
able leadership of Chairman Char-
lotte Padek and President Alvera
Gold.
According to the two leaders,
"In the coming year, the chal-
lenges that lay ahead are even
greater. As the Jewish population
of South Florida grows and
Israel's population base expands
with the influx of refugees, the
need to raise more money to
sustain this growth becomes even
more necessary.
Women have been active partic-
ipants in the Federation/UJA
campaign since 1989. However,
there are still many women who
say, "We give as a family." Why
then should each woman and man
give a separate gift?
There are several reasons
women would want to make their
own pledge. Women are
expressing their personal commit-
ment to Jewish life by making
their own donation. Women who
are asserting themselves more in
business, the professions, the arts,
and the voting booth should not
abdicate responsbility in this vital
area of compassion and humanity.
Because we live in a world
where apathy and silence threaten
our democratic way of life, women
have the responsibility to stand up
and be counted one by one.
Over $100 million dollars from
individual women's separate gifts
flay a major role in meeting
srael's health, education, and
welfare needs as well as streng-
thening the fabric of our commu-
nities. Women set the example to
Tzedakah for their families by
what they do as individuals.
Each gift to the Women's Divi-
sion decides the quality of the
community in which we live.
Women have a choice. They can
assure the continuity of high
quality service which is the
strength of local and world Jewry
or hope that someone else will do
it."

Kurt and Alice Walter Chair
Presidents Jubilee Mission to Israel
Barbara K. Wiener, Jewish
Federation Executive vice presi-
dent and Missions chair,
announced the appointment of
Kurt and Alice Walter as chair-
persons of this year's Presidents
Jubilee Mission to Poland and
Israel on October 9-21, 1988.
The Walters are actively
involved in the Woodlands Feder-
ation/UJA campaign and they
participated in last year's Presi-
dents Mission.
Wiener related, "The Walters
are concerned and caring people
and I know that they will do an
outstanding job chairing this
mission."
The President's Jubilee Mission
will join with Federation leaders
from all over the country in honor
of the 50th anniversary of the
United Jewish Appeal. Several
special Jubilee Mission programs
are being planned to celebrate this
auspicious occasion.
"Why should anyone thinking of
going to Israel choose a Federa-
tion mission over other kinds of
trips?" said Wiener.
"There are several reasons. On
all other trips to Israel you go as a
tourist. The Federation Mission
experience gives you much more
discovery, revelation, and a
sense of self. It is an opportunity
to see for yourself what has been
accomplished by the Jewish
They stated, "We certainly appre-
ciate the honor of being selected
to chair the Presidents Mission to
Israel and Poland. We will do our
utmost to make everyone feel
comfortable and happy on this
trip."

CJF Board Via Satellite
Adopts Soviet Jewry Policy
In the first Council of Jewish
Federations Board of Directors
meeting conducted over the CJF
Satellite Network, the Board
voted to adopt a proposal for
restructuring the national Soviet
Jewry advocacy movement.
As part of their communications
upgrades, The Jewish Federation
is now a member of the Council's
Satellite program and will conduct
the special telecasts live from the
Headquarters Building on West
Oakland Park Blvd.
More than 200 Federation
volunteer leaders and professional
staff participated in the meeting
from 21 sites around the country.
Through the CJF's teleconfer-
encing system, representatives
from CJF, the National Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry and
NJCRAC presented their posi-
tions and fielded questions on the
issue of dealing more effectively
with Soviet Jewry advocacy in the
United States.
Under the new plan, the
National Conference will have the
central responsibility, authority
and accountability for the Soviet
Jewry cause on the national level.
The National Conference will also
maintain its "special relationship"
with the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory
Council and will utilize NJCRAC
to help coordinate local implemen-
tation of national policies and
recommendations.

Friday, July 15, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 9
From Destruction to Redemption
Jv ABRAHAM J. GITTELSON
CAJE Director
Perhaps more than any other
Lspect of Judaism, the Jewish
Ealendar portrays the striving of
the Jew to re-enact, in his own
life, the peak historical experi-
ences of his people throughout the
ues. The Exodus from Egypt, for
Example, is the prime model of the
'rovidence of God and the
promise of redemption for all
mankind. The emergence from
ilavery to freedom is a common
iread that is interwoven in the
apestry of the holidays of Pesach,
ihavuot, Sukkot and even the
Sabbath. At the Shabbat table, in
he Sukkot, and at the Seder, we
relive that decisive event in the
Jewish experience so as to inter-
nalize it and live by the historical
truths which it expresses.
Yet there are tragic times in our
Ihistory as well and to ignore them
I would be false to the historical
event and to the lessons that can
[be derived from it. Tisha B'Av,
I the ninth day of the Hebrew
I month of Av, which falls this year
Ion Sunday, July 24th, is the para-
Idigm of defeat and destruction, of
I sadness and mourning, and yet of
[future redemption as well.
Tisha B'Av commemorates
I major tragedies of Jewish history
the destruction of the First
Temple in 586 BCE by the Babylo-
nians and the Second Temple by
the Romans more than 600 years
later in 70 CE. Tradition assigns
Tisha B'Av that day on which the
generation of Israelites which had
left Egypt were decreed to die in
the desert, while a new generation
I of free men would enter the Prom-
ised Land.
Tisha B'Av marks as well the
fall of the fortress of Beitar to the
Romans in the year 135 CE,
symbolizing the crushing of the
revolt of Bar Kochba against
Roman dominance. But a year
later, it was to the plowing up of
the Temple Mount by the
Romans and the establishment of
a Roman temple on the site.
Nor was tragedy to cease in the
centuries that followed. The
prayers of mourning said on Tisha
B'Av, the 'knot,' refer to the
burning of 24 cart loads of the
Talmud in Paris in 1242 and the
destruction of scores of communi-
ties during the Crusades. Tradi-
tion dates the expulsion of the
Jewish community of Spain, in
1492, after centuries of a "Golden
Age" of Jewish life and culture in
that land, to the day of Tisha
B'Av.
Traditional Jewish law and
custom concretize the feelings of
forboding and anguish that inten-
sify during the three week period
preceeding Tisha B'Av that
marked the increasing destruction
of both the First and Second
Temples. From the 17th day of
Tammuz, of the preceeding
month, to Tisha B'Av, the three
week period is marked by the
avoidance of joyous occasions
(such as weddings) and of those
acts which would require the "she-
hechiyanu" blessing over some-
thing new and enjoyable. The
prophetic portions read in the
synagogue speak of moral degra-
dation and the punishment that
must inevitably follow. In the nine
days immediately preceeding the
fast day, it is customary to avoid
meat or wine. Indeed the very last
meal on the afternoon of Tisha
B'Av is one of austerity and depri-
vation.
On the eve of Tisha B'Av, the
curtain of the Ark is removed, as
if the very countenance of God
was veiled and hidden and the
universe empty of His Presence.
The synagogue is usually in semi-
darkness, Tit only by candles,
while the Book of Lamentations,
recounting the destruction by the
Babylonians, is chanted in dirge-
like fashion by the worshippers
seated on low benches or the floor
itself. The symbolism is that of an
individual mourner grieving over
the loss of a loved one. Fasting
and in mourning, we re-
experience the tragedy of our
people and relive it as if it were
happening to ourselves.
During the morning service, the
worshippers do not don the tallit
or tefillin, which are considered as
ornaments of pride, beauty and
glory. The Book of Lamentations
is read once again, and mourning
elegies are read. The Torah
portions deal with despair and
exile, yet with the first echoes of
comfort as well.
As the day wanes, the elements
of hope and redemption emerge
more clearly. The tallit and tefillin
are worn at the afternoon service,
prayers of comfort are said, and
as the fast day ends with the
evening service, the prayer for the
full moon is proclaimed. In
mystical Jewish literature, the
sanctification of the moon is the
hope for the Messiah, and the
prayer reflects the belief that all
of history and nature will be
restored to wholeness and perfec-
tion.
In our own community, as in
many synagogues throughout the
country, the concept of redemp-
tion is linked with the rebuilding
of the land of Israel. It is
customary to give contributions to
the Jewish National Fund for the
paving of roads and the planting
of trees. Certainly this year, one
could link the tragic fires being set
in Israel destroying thousands of
trees with the flames that ravaged
the holy sites in the times of the
tragedies that occurred on Tisha
B'Av.
The dominant theme, then, that
emerges from the fast of Tisha
B'av, is that we re-enact past
tragedy as if we ourselves had
experienced its impact. But the
re-enactment would be meaning-
less if it did not stimulate us to
ultimately seek greater spiritual
heights. The days of tragedy
sensitize us to the historical sacrif-
ices of our people, to the needs of
those who still suffer in our own
day, and to the primacy of indi-
vidual responsibility so as to lead
of communal redemption. The
rising crescendo of catastrophe is
transformed into a paean of faith,
deeds of loving kindness and the
seeking of repentence as the High
Holy days approach.

IVY AND LARRY LEVINE
AND FAMILY
APRIL '88
VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
For the first time JCC nomi-
nates one family of five to be
honored as its volunteer of the
month for April. Ivy and Larry
Levine, the chairs of "Israel 40,'
together with their sons Howie,
17, Glen, 14, and Ronnie, 13, are
the one wonderful family unit to
be honored for their service to the
Center.
On two occasions this past
spring, all five teamed up to help
produce two successful JCC
events. The first was a
WHODUNIT! A Saturday
evening in March when 200 guests
came to the JCC to dine and try to
solve a hilarious murder mystery.
Created by a team of JCC writers
led by the Levine Family, the
clever presentation took many
months of planning and produc-
tion of video tapes, narrations and
the distribution of a bag of clues
for everyone. To help make this
"crime" story pay off for JCC, all
five Levines took part, working
with the organizing, the taping,

ISRAEL '40
Ivy and Larry Levine, the
perennial chairs of JCC's Israel
independence Days, were in
charge for the ninth time! Since
the Center moved to its present
location in 1979 they have organ-
ized the giant celebrations with
patience, fortitude, hard work and
a great deal of ingenuity every
year. And since their sons have
grown up, there've come along
with the folks. On the big day this
year, when 5,000 strong showed
up, Howie worked the sound
equipment, Glen directed traffic
all day (assisted by his mother)
and Ronnie took hundreds of
"still" photos. "Their expertise
was invaluable," says JCC
Assistant Executive Director
David Surowitz.
Named as volunteers of the
month in previous years both Ivy
and Larry Levine has been cited
for their devotion to the Center.
"We believe in JCC and we want
to do our part to see that it grows
and continues to serve our Jewish
people," they say.
Larry Levine, an attorney with
a law degree from Fordham U, is
a real estate developer. Ivy
Levine, owning a BS from Mills
College of Education was in the
retail children clothing business
for seven years, operating the
well known "Freckles" establish-
ment. The Levines moved here
from the New York area with
Howie 15 years ago, Glen and
Ronnie are Plantation natives.
Howie is a junior in South Plan-
tation High, an expert photograph
and video specialist. Glen, a
freshmen in the same school, is an
avid tennis player. Ronnie, in 7th
grade, University School, is also a
photographs buff. All three boys
are honor students.
To the Levines Congratula-
tions and many thanks for every-
thing!
