\Strengthening Family Life In Touch With Elderly Needs...
Jewish Family Service of Broward County
Jewish Family Services of
Broward County, a major
Federation agency, has estab-
lished a tradition of caring for
people of all ages with an array
of social services.
One of the groups that is
helped by JFS is the elderly,
through a variety of services
including the "CHAI" and
Respite Care programs.
Sherwin Rosenstein, JFS
executive director, stated,
"With half of the Jewish popu-
lation of North Broward
County 60 and over, it has
almost become incumbent
upon us to have a variety of
offerings to meet the needs of
this age group.
Maxine Wolgin, one of two
geriatric case managers talked
about the importance of the
CHAI program which
stands for Comprehensive
Help for Adult Individuals.
Living far away from aging
parents or loved ones can
make it difficult to know how
they're really getting along.
By evaluation, assisting, or
monitoring these elderly
clients, JFS caseworkers serve
as a liaison between the client
and the concerned relative
who wants the best possible
care for the person or couple in
need.
Wolgin spoke about a some-
what typical case where the
CHAI program made a differ-
ence.
A couple in their 80's who
lives alone has their problems
he has Alzheimer's disease
and she has memory lapses.
The nephew of this couple
contacted Jewish Family
Services to evaluate the situa-
tion and manage the case.
Wolgin then proceeded to go
out and interview the couple,
gather information on their
mental and physical condition
and ability to function, and
then submitted a written eval-
uation on the people.
Wolgin related, "We make
recommendations as to what
services are needed for the
clients and then spend many
hours putting those services
into place."
In conversations with the
couple, Maxine was informed
of now isolated they often
were, especially since he is no
longer able to drive. Wolgin
says, "You have to be an advo-
cate for these people and make
sure that they are getting the
best possible care and that
they're not being taken advan-
tage of."
Wolgin is presently working
to have the couple relocated to
a more protective environ-
ment, such as an Adult

In the Spotlight-A Record of Bigotry and Violence..
ADL Report Hate Groups in America
At least 67 racist and anti-
Semitic hate organizations
openly advocating or
engaging in acts of violence
are active in the United
States today and there are
some 50 publications which
regularly spread bigotry.
The past six years have
been one of the more violent
periods in the history of the
American hate groups, even
as membership generally has
declined sharply. This
violence resulted in
sweeping crackdowns by
federal and local law enforce-
ment authorities against far-
right extremists that sent
many of them to prison.
The pattern of violence has
included bombings, armed
robberies and murders such
as the fatal shooting of
Denver radio talk show host
Alan Berg, the bombing of
synagogues in Indiana and
Idaho, the arson of a
Missouri church and the
attempted bombing of a
natural gas pipeline in
Missouri.
Extremists have conspired
to commit sabotage on a large
scale by, for example,
destroying dams which
provide water and electric
power to major American
metropolitan centers. The
ultimate aim, according to
these extremists, was to
overthrow the American
government and establish a
white supremacist regime
plans that were aborted by
vigorous law enforcement
action.
These violent elements in
the hate movement have
achieved a spectacular pre-
eminence over older and
larger factions.
Among the major findings
of the ADL survey of hate
groups in America:
The Ku Klux Klan:
Although Klan membership
has declined approximately
50 percent since 1982 with
its leadership weakened and
splintered, a relatively small
number of violent racists
have had an inordinate
impact. Although the Klan
attempts to project a
respectable, patriotic image,
this is only a mask for white
supremacist ideology
directed against Blacks,
Jews, Hispanics, Orientals
and other minorities.
According to the Justice
Department, more than 150
persons, including at least 84
Klan members have been
prosecuted for racially moti-
vated violence from 1979 to
1985.
"Identity church" move-
ment: The violence-prone,
pseudo-theological hate
groups, which have been
weakened by the arrest and
imprisonment of many of its
members in recent years,
generally subscribe to the
belief that Ango-Saxons are
the Biblical "chosen people,"
not Jews. One former
member of The Order, a
group which subscribes to
Identity doctrines, testified
in federal court that the ulti-
mate goal of the organization

quality of life for an individual
in his/her own residence." This
is accomplished by providing
help for the caretaker of the
personal need, so as not to
stress out the caregiver which
could result in the necessity of
earlier institutionalization of
the individual.
Wolgin adds, "Someone who
lives alone may need a person
part-time or live-in to help
them with their personal care
and meal preparation, in which
case we can provide a home-
maker or personal aide for the
client."

Bentsen to be Dukakis Running Mate;
Is Viewed as a Supporter of Israel
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) Sen.
Lloyd Bentsen (D.-Texas), whom
Massachusetts Gov. Michael
Dukakis named as his vice presi-
dential running mate, is consid-
ered to have been largely sympa-
thetic to the concerns of the
Jewish community during his 18
years in the Senate, although he
has supported arms sales for Arab
countries.
Not Expert In Foreign Affairs
The 67-year-old Bentsen is
considered a supporter of the
close relationship between the
United States and Israel, as well
as an advocate for Soviet Jewry.
But he has not been in the fore-
front of these issues.
His leadership role in the Senate
has not been in foreign affairs, but
in economic matters, especially
taxation. He is chairman of the
Senate Finance Committee.
Bentsen has a mixed record on
foreign aid, occasionally voting
against such legislation, although
his opposition is seen by sources
as being more against aid in
general, rather than the amount
going to Israel.
He did not co-sponsor the bill in
the Senate to create the U.S.-
Israel free trade agreement, but
voted for the bill when it was
approved overwhelmingly by the
Senate.
Bentsen co-sponsored the legis-
lation to close the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization offices,
supported Senate ratification of
the Genocide Convention and is a
co-sponsor of the current bill,
awaiting Senate action, to imple-
ment the convention by making
genocide a federal crime.
In 1984, Bentsen was co-
sponsor of the Senate resolution
to move the U.S. Embassy in
Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
He also supported the bill to allow
persons in the military to wear
yarmulkes.
In 1985, Bentsen was one of a
group of senators who unsuccess-
fully urged President Reagan not
to visit the military cemetery in
Bitburg, West Germany, where
members of the Waffen SS are
among those buried.
Key Vote On Saudi Sale
Perhaps Bentsen's most contro-
versial vote, as far as the Jewish
community is concerned, came in
June 1986, when he voted to
uphold Reagan's veto of a joint
controversial resolution rejecting
a weapons sale to the Saudis.
The Senate failed to override
the veto by one vote, and the sale
went ahead. Bentsen was the
only Democrat to switch his
vote.
In 1984, he opposed the sale of
Stinger missiles to Jordan and
Saudi Arabia, and in 1985, he
co-sponsored the resolution to
deny advanced weapons to Jordan
until it begins peace negotiations
with Israel.
But in 1987, he was not one of
the 68 senators who signed a
letter opposing the sale of 1,600
Maverick missiles to the Saudis,
which eventually caused Reagan
to remove the missile from the
arms package.
Most recently, he was not
among the 21 senators who signed
a letter, initiated this month by
Sen. Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.),
urging the administration not to
submit a proposed $1.9 billion
arms sale to Kuwait.
On domestic issues, Bentsen
voted for a constitutional amend-
ment that would have permitted
prayer in the public schools. He
has supported women's right to
choose to have abortions, voting
against an amendment that would
have forbidden the District of
Columbia to use district or federal
funds to pay for abortions.
"Lloyd Bentsen's long congres-
sional career indicates consider-
able understanding and sympathy
for many issues of particular
interest to the Jewish community
- the U.S.-Israel relationship,
Soviet Jewry, the genocide
treaty," said David Harris, Wash-
ington representative of the
American Jewish Committee.
'Close Working Relationship*
"While there may be some
concern about some of Sen.
Bentsen's votes with respect to
arms sales to Arab countries that
remain technically at war with
Israel, overall we view him as a
friend with whom we have
enjoyed a close working relation-
ship."
David Brody, Washington
representative of the Anti-
Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, observed that
Bentsen has been a strong
supporter of Israel and has had
good relations with the Jewish
community in Texas."
He said the senator stressed in a
recent letter to constituents that
by supporting Israel, the United
States "advances the cause of
peace in the Middle East."
Brody said Bentsen also has
emphasized the need to take
strong measures against
terrorism. And the senator has
ftushed for an energy policy to
essen dependence on Middle East
oil.
In presenting Bentsen, Dukakis
noted the parallel to 1960, when
the Democratic ticket also
contained a presidential candidate
from Massachusetts, John
Kennedy, and a vice presidential
candidate from Texas, Lyndon
Johnson.
Not mentioned was another
parallel to that election. Bentsen
benefits from a Texas law passed
that year for Johnson, which will
allow him to run for re-election for
his Senate seat, as Johnson did in
1960, while running for the vice
presidency.
Bentsen was first elected to the
Senate in 1970, when he defeated
his Republican opponent, George
Bush, who will be the GOP presi-
dential candidate this year. Bush
has not yet named a running
mate.
A native of Texas, Bentsen
enlisted in the army as a private
during World War II and rose to
the rank of major. He graduated
from the University of Texas with
a law degree.
He was elected to the House of
Representatives in 1948 and
served there until 1954, when he
went into business in Houston.

A DAY IN A WHITE NIGHT
Americans love to travel. Since
the advent of 'Glasnost' more
American Jews are visiting Russia
than ever before. Some of them,
like Henrietta and Jack
Moskowitz of Lauderhill, have
never been involved with the
Soviet Jewry movement. Their
knowledge of refuseniks was
vague. Nevertheless, once
deciding to vacation in the Soviet
Union, their lives would be
changed forever by those they
contacted in Moscow.
Henrietta and Jack'lefV the *Ft/
Lauderdale airport with the name
and address of a refusenik family
among their other papers. It was a
list minute item ghten them by
friends in Florida. They were
advised to take Marlboro ciga-
rettes to be used! as, currency in,
t*j> USSR. Hafltbey realized that
a pack of Marlboro' was worth
almost eight American dollars,
they certainly would have brought
m6re than one carton.
Summertime in Moscow is
called the season of the 'White
Nights' (remember the movie?)
. there is only one hour of
darkness each day. On the streets
people seemed very friendly and
traveling was not too difficult in
the constant daylight. As
instructed, Henrietta called 'her"
refuseniks Yuri and Tanya
Zieman, from a pay phone in the
park, to arrange a time to visit.
(The cabby insisted upon Amer-
ican cigarettes as payment for the
fare. The remaining packs were
left with Yuri Zieman.)
On the very day Jack and
Henrietta visited the family, they
were once again denied exit visas.
Henrietta was dismayed to learn
that twelve year old Vera Zieman
has been a refusenik for all but
one year of her life. Fortunately,
the older daughter, Galina, was
able to emigrate with her husband
and baby in June 1987. Previously
a nurse in Russia, Galina, is now
in nursing school in the Boston
area. Coincidentally, the
Moskowitz's daughter is also a
nurse in Boston. The two young
women have since talked to each
other and found much in common.
Before requesting to leave
Russia, Yuri had been a Ph.D.
computer scientist. He told his
American visitors that he is now a
plumber in a maternity hospital.
Tanya, who taught English at
Moscow University, has been
unable to obtain paid employment.
She does volunteer work for the
Associated Press as a translator.
For several years, friends (mostly
non-Jews) have given them pack-
ages of food and some of the
basics in order for them to
continue to live. Mail is uncertain
and visitors few and far between,
but they have been permitted to
keep their telephone. It is the last
remaining vestige of their pre-
refusenik life. It has remained
their only 'luxury' and the only
viable link to the outside world.
The life of a refusenik is so sparse
that even a single cup of coffee is
'Hke gold'. Nonetheless, the
Zieman family feel they are
among the 'fortunate' of the refu-
senik group. Y.uri has met with-
' Secretary of. State, Schultz and the
family has been 'adopted' by~
several Soviet Jewry committees
.including Florida, New York and
Boston. Tanya expressed fear for
those friends who are not so
visible yet still desire to leave.
Yuri said, "They must not be
forgotten. Some of them cannot
even buy food."
The opportunity to meet a refu-
senik family is not on every
tourist's itinerary. Henrietta and
Jack Moskowitz will certainly
never forget the day they spent
with the Zieman family. They
learned that Jews in the Soviet
Union live in limbo and in
constant fear of arrest or repri-
sals. Yuri and his brother have not
spoken since Yuri decided on
emigration eleven years ago.
In Boston this past week, the
Moskowitz's daughter has been
told by Galina that her parents
have been promised exit visas.
"You can't be sure until they are
on the plane," she said, "out I
hope they (the Soviets) don't
change their minds." Henrietta
and Jack Moskowitz are now
among the many American Jews
waiting to welcome Tanya, Yuri
and Vera Zieman to freedom.
Visits from American Jewish
travelers to the Soviet Union is one
very important way for the refu-
senik families to maintain contact
with the free world. If you are
planning a trip to Russia contact
Joel Teues at the Federation office
(71,8-81,00) for further information.
leading the Mission's Women's
Division participants, said the
emphasis of the Mission will be on
"people to people."
Highlights of the Mission will
include an entertaining street fair
in Jerusalem featuring the folk-
lore, music and cuisine of Israel's
ethnic communities; a poignant
twilight Kaddish Convocation at
Yad Vashem; the dedication of
"UJA Square" by past and
present UJA leaders; Shabbat
dinner with recent Soviet immi-
grants; and home hospitality with
families in Project Renewal neigh-
borhoods and other communities.
According to Kurt Walter, there
are still a few spots available for
this year's Presidents Jubilee
Mission to Poland and Israel. If
you are interested in going on this
Mission, or would like information

Auschwitz Exhibit
Completes UJA
American Tour
More than 210,000 Americans,
Jews and non-Jews had the oppor-
tunity to see artifacts from the
Holocaust's most notorious death
camp, Auschwitz, for the first
time in the United States during
the past two years through a
historic tour sponsored by the
United Jewish Appeal.
The landmark tour of the exhibi-
tion "Auschwitz: A Crime Against
Mankind" which features photo-
graphs and documents from the
death camp has completed its tour
of 14 cities. The exhibition has
now been returned to the
Auschwitz State Museum but had

The tour resulted from an

which the UJA obtained the rights
to sponsor the exhibition on a U.S.

was the "annihilation of the
Jewish race."
Formed in 1983, The
Order embarked on a series
of violent crimes mainly on
the West Coast and Moun-
tain states as part of a revo-
lution to overthrow the U.S.
government that culminated
in more than two dozen
arrests in 13 states. The
crimes included bank
robberies, counterfeiting
operations, arson, holdups of
armored vehicles, shootouts
with agents of the FBI, an
assassination and a syna-
gogue bombing.
Most of The Order's
volence-prone members are
currently serving lengthy
prison sentences after a
four-month federal court
trial in Seattle in 1985.
Several of them were among
ten white supremicists
indicted in 1987 by a federal
grand jury in Ft. Smith, AR,
and charged with "seditious
conspiracy" to overthrow
the U.S. government. They
are now on trial.
Neo-Nazi organizations:
Consisting of small numbers,
estimated at several hundred
throughout the United
States, they are involved in
nationwide distribution of
anti-Semitic hate propo-
ganda through periodicals,
books, posters and even
material which can be
obtained through computer
networks. A large neo-Nazi
propoganda mill is operated
by Liberty Bell Publications
of Reedy, West Virginia.
A recent phenomenon is
the growth in Skinhead
gangs who wear neo-Nazi
insignia, preach hatred
against Blacks, Jews and
other minorities, attack indi-
viduals and engage in
vandalism and other criminal
acts. They are now operating
in Chicago, where the most
active group is located, the
San Francisco Bay area, in
central Florida, Los
Angeles, Dallas, Denver,
Detroit, Oklahoma City and
Portland, OR.
Among acts of violence
they have perpetrated were
the terrorizing of a Black
woman in San Jose, CA, who
was told "niggers pay a toll"
and threatened with being
strung up when she tried to
enter a park.
The neo-Nazi movement is
now at its "lowest ebb" since
George Lincoln Rockwell
founded the American Nazi
Party in the late 1950s. The
most direct successor of
Rockwell's original organiza-
tion is the New Order,
formerly the National
Socialist White People's
Party, which is based in New
Berlin, WI.
Another active neo-Nazi
group is the National Alli-
ance headquartered in Mill
Point, West Virginia and
headed by long-time racist
leader and anti-Semite
William Pierce. The National
Alliance is active in distri-
buting hate propoganda
materials which allege a
worldwide Jewish conspiracy
and deny the reality of the
Holocaust.
Abraham H. Foxman,
ADL's national director
stated, "If America is to
continue to meet the chal-
lenge of hate and violence by
organized bigots, govern-
ment and law enforcement
officials, community and reli-
gious leaders and educators
must take even more
vigorous measures to
monitor their activities and
combat them."
Praising the recent crack-
down by federal and local
authorities against the
extremist, he said, "Even a
relative handful of racists
who will still engage in
vadalism or terrorist acts
can have a ripple effect and
poison the atmosphere of a
democratic society."

Federation Chaplaincy Commission in Action...
South Florida's Religious Community Battles Drug Abuse
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Rabbi Albert Schwartz, director
of the Jewish Federation's Chap-
laincy Commission has organized
a coalition of religious denomina-
tions and substance abuse treat-
ment organizations to work
together to combat the drug abuse
problem in Broward County.
The group, the Religious
Committee s Response to
Substance Abuse, met for the first
time in July to discuss ways to
motivate all area congregations to
become involved in the prevention
and treatment process of this
terrible problem.
At the meeting, a plan that
outlines clear steps for dealing
with the problem was presented,
which comes from a booklet enti-
tled, "The Religious Community's
Response to Substance Abuse."
The booklet was an outgrowth of
Governor's Graham's Commission
on Drug and Alcohol Concerns.
Reverend Sean O'Sullivan,
director of Substance Abuse for
Catholic Community Services,
said that there is a close relation-
ship between drugs and crime and
"as religious leaders it is
important that we mobilize the
religious sector to fight this
problem."
Mark Wolin, a Miami attorney
who is involved with the "Crack
Down" program, an outgrowth of
Crimestoppers of Broward
County, stated, "the timing is
right to take effective action on a
short, medium, and long-term
basis to fight the drug problem
this is our home, our community,
and our backyard."
Wolin continued that a "Blue
Ribbon Panel" composed of
people from many institutions
involved in combatting the drug
problem are studying the Crack
Cocaine problem and will issue a
report with specific proposals that
will be implemented to fight the
Crack and Substance Abuse
problem.
According to Rabbi Albert
Schwartz, synagogues and
churches have a marvelous oppor-
tunity to establish policies that
can assist their congregants as
Baby Boom
Required
According to a report published
by the World Zionist Organization
(W.Z.O.) the Jewish population
has declined over the last 15
years. In 1970 the Jewish popula-
tion worldwide numbered
12,924,000; by 1985 it had
dropped to 12,881,000. The
number of Jews living in the Dias-
pora fell from 10,242,000 in 1970
to 9,360,000 in 1985. However the
numbers increased inside Israel
from 2,582,000 to 3,521,000.
The report attributed the
declining number of Diaspora
Jews to intermarriage and "the
breakdown of the family unit." If
present trends continue, the
report predicts, by the year 2000
the number of Jews in the
Disapora will have fallen to
7,921,000, while the number of
Jews in Israel will increase to
4,291,000. The number of Jews
worldwide would thus be
12,212,000 a significant drop
from today's figures.
A recent W.Z.O. conference in
Jerusalem held to assess means of
dealing with this serious problem
concluded that, unlike state
governments (which actually
control populations), there was
less Jewish communities could do.
Strong investment in Jewish
education and cheaper educa-
tion was considered an
important factor.
they cope with decisions
regarding drug and alcohol use,
nonuse and abuse.
Reverend O'Sullivan said, "An
important thing this Committee
can do is to pull in people inter-
ested in the prevention and treat-
ment of substance abuse with
the primary goal of creating a
'substance abuse ministry' in
every congregation." Two parts
of the program would include a
treatment committee which would
help convince people who are
substance abusers to seek help to
overcome their problem, and a
prevention committee which
would disseminate information on
drug abuse.
Earl Glenner, a therapist with
the First Congregation Church,
added, "The problem from a
national standpoint is insufficient
money directed for prevention
and treatment of the drug abuse
problem. We also need more
money to fight the Cocaine
coming into our borders."

abuse or substance abuse
programs, contact Rabbi
Sohwartz at the Federation, 748-

of restructuring and is looking to
broaden its base and appeal to
new leadership.
Harold Oshry talked about the
Federation's role on the HIAS
board. Oshry related, "By
belonging to HIAS, we will be able
to function as liaisons between the
Federation and HIAS so that both
organizations can do a better job
serving the community."
Oshry remarked that he became
interested in HIAS ever since he
took a trip to Moscow in 1987, at
which time he became more aware
of the problems facing Soviet
refuseniks.
"I became very interested in the
relocation of these Jewish refu-
gees who have suffered unjustly
as refuseniks," declared Oshry.
Wiener, related that also of
significant importance is the fact
that HIAS is expected to assist
2,500 Iranian Jews to emigrate to
the U.S. this year alone.
When a Jew chooses not to go to
Israel, he/she becomes a refugee,
and those wanting to settle in the
U.S. are assisted by the U.S.
government and HIAS toward
that goal.
Wiener adds, "HIAS does an
outstanding job in terms of taking
care of Jews who choose not to go
to Israel."
Harold L. Oshry, president of
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, joins two other
Federation leaders as members of
the Board of Directors of HIAS -
The Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society.
Oshry joins Federation execu-
tive vice president Barbara K.
Wiener and Board member Morris
Furman on the 1988-89 HIAS
Board.
HIAS has been dedicated to
resettling Jewish and non-Jewish
refugees into this country and
others around the world for over
100 years. HIAS is the interna-
tional migration agency of the
organized Jewish community.
Since its inception in 1881, HIAS
has received and resettled more
than 4 million Jews.
HIAS operates through a global
network in 47 countries on six
continents. Community leaders
from around the U.S., from
Canada, Latin America, and
Europe serve on its Board of
Directors. HIAS world headquar-
ters, with a staff of 60, is located
in New York City.
Amid indications that Soviet
officials are honoring more invita-
tions for Soviet Jews to reunite
with their families in the U.S.,
HIAS has begun to mobilize the
American Jewish community and
Jewish Federation to get involved
in the effort.
"We're 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,"
said Karl Zuckerman, HIAS exec-
utive vice president.

Jackson and the Jewish Community
Israel in the Black American
Perspective by Robert G.
Weisbord and Richard Kazarian
Jr. Westport, Greenwood Press.
The Jesse Jackson Phenomenon
Adolph L. Reed Jr., New Haven.
Yale University Press.
Both these books use Reverend
Jesse Jackson's 1984 Presidential
candidacy as a primary reference.
For Weisbord and Kazarian.
Jackson's drawn out battle with
the American Jewish Community
is central. For Reed, the tensions
raised make up just one chapter in
a book examining a multitude of
issues surrounding the candidacy.
Adolph Reed uses the Jackson
candidacy to expose a more
general atrophy in the Afro-
American polity. Writing from a
radical perspective, he does not
see Jackson's bid for the presiden-
cy as a "Rainbow coalition" or as
even symbolic of genuine black
aspirations. Rather, it
represented an uneasy last-
minute coalition between the Pro-
test and Electoral elites of the
black community, each out to save
its own neck.
The two "black, issues" .which
developed conflicts with Jewish
groups are representative: "Affir-
mative Action," argues Reed, on-
ly benefits the petty bourgeois
minority of Afro-Americans. Mid-
dle East power-broking, as prac-
tised by Jackson, Walter Faun-
troy and Joseph Lowery, may
reflect black political opinion, but
does not help fight the severe
economic effects of Reaganism at
home, and ultimately only serves
to enhance the prestige of the
power-broker in the white media.
Reed finds more for blacks on the
AFL/CIO agenda, ironically, one
of Jackson's nemeses.
Reed's thorough research and
analytical skills used to demolish
Jackson and Co. are unfortunately
not so evident when he repesents
the Jewish side of the
confrontation.
Reed's claims of an Israel/South
African axis, and of the tendency
of the American Zionist lobby "to
brand any criticism of Israel as
anti-Semitism," are conspicuous
by the absence of back-up
evidence in an otherwise well-
annotated book. Jackson's anti-
Semitism is fully acknowledged,
indeed is seen as indicative of the
. antidemocratic; natwe^fhjs.cany
paign, as evidenced by phrases
like "race treason" used against
his black critics. However, Reed
also asserts that Jackson's anti-
Semitism "ruined the one con-
tribution he might have made ...
that is, the call for a more
reasonable approach to United
States policy on the Middle East,"
without explaining why Jackson's
Middle East plank was any more
substantive than any of the others
in his platform.
Nonetheless, Reed identifies the
fundamental cause of the
black/Jewish confrontation, and
that is that there is no "historic
alliance" between the two groups.
The longterm relationship of
American Jew to American black
has been one of patronage, not
partnership. The Jews were the
benefactors, the blacks the
receivers, Robert Weisbord and
Richard Kazarian quote Jackson
as noting "Jews were willing to
share decency, but not power."
Ironically, Weisbord and
Kazarian not only otherwise ig-
nore the fallacy of the "historic
alliance," their book perpetuates
the benefactor/receiver relation-
ship of blacks and Jews. It might
have been entitled Israel in the
Jewish American Perspective, as

Kosher Nutrition Volunteers
The seniors enjoyed the
Shabbat program presented by
Cantor Leonard Kaufman
making Kiddish on a recent
Friday. If you would like to
join the generous Cantors in
our area who volunteer one
hour a year to bring Shabbat
happiness to the elders of the
Kosher Nutrition Program,
please call Sandy Friedland,
797-0SS1.
Do you know this man? He is
Leon Rifkind, director of the
Yiddish group at Wynmore, a
valued visitor to the Kosher
Nutrition Program. With his
nimble footwork, exquisite
arrangements and Yiddish
Parodies, he has his audience
aglow with the warmth of the
Yiddish stage of yesteryear.
Not shown, but equally valued,
is piano player extraordin-
aire, Barry VoUcman.
Explained to Blacks. Instead of
using the statistical research used
by Reed to validate grassroots
black opinion. Weisbord and
Kazarian rely on leadership
statements, the middle-class black
media, and the white media to
gauge black perceptions of Israel.
Consequently, the Black
Hebrew Israelites, almost a non-
issue for American blacks, are
given a whole chapter, including
detailed explanations of Ben-
Ammi Carter's philosophy. The
presence in Israel of basketball
players like Earl Williams and
Aulcie Perry is considered
somehow significant for Afro-
Americans.
The book is not without value; it
is a well-written and spirited ex-
planation and defence of
American Jewish support for
Israel, in the context of
Jewish/black relations. However,
it is difficult to discover what
qualifies it as Number 84 of "Con-
tributions in Afro-American and
African Studies.
With the exception of one in-
sight: after exploding the
Israel/South Africa "alliance"
myth, the writers note that Israel
justifies its unextraordinary rela-
tions with the Apartheid regime
as part of a "pragmatic" foreign
policy, and observe that "to be
consistent, this means Jews in
Israel and the Diaspora must stop
bemoaning the indifference and
silence of the "civilized" world
during the Holocaust.
Both books maintain a cautious
optimism regarding the future of
a black/Jewish allliance in the
U.S. based both on a necessary
bond against Reaganism.

Fort Lauderdale Physician Dream Becomes Reality
Soviet-American Couple Re-United
WASHINGTON Eight years
of separation ended when Lithua-
nian lawyer Pyatras Pakenas was
recently re-united with his wife,
Dr. Galina Vileshina, at Dulles
International Airport.
"This is the happiest day of my
life," said Dr. Vileshina, a neuro-
logist who lives in Boca Raton and
practices medicine in the Fort
Lauderdale area.
The couple was re-united June
28 at a joyful airport gathering
that included daughter Laura
Abovich and grandson Eric
Abovich, 8, of North Palm Beach.
Florida Senator Bob Graham
and U.S. Rep. E. Clay Shaw of
Fort Lauderdale co-hosted a
reception for Mr. Pakenas and Dr.
Vileshina at the Capitol June 29.
"We share this family's joy,"
Graham said. "Their love for each
other and for freedom is an inspir-
ation to people around the world."
Dr. Vileshina emigrated from
the Soviet Union (Lithuania) in
1980, along with her daughter,
son-in-law and son. Soviet author-
ities had denied Mr. Pakenas'
application to leave 18 times, and
assigned him to work in a meat-
packing plant.
Dr. Vileshina launched an eight-
year campaign on behalf of her
husband. On May 28, 1988 the
eve of the Moscow arms-reduction
summit the Soviets announced
that Mr. Pakenas could join his
family in Florida.

immigrants really want to work.
But when they're in competition
with American born and educated

"We'd like the Jewish
community to respond by offering
these immigrants an opportunity
to interview for jobs in their
offices and businesses," says Mrs.
Heimlich.
Jewish Family Service provides
a number of services, in coopera-

Kol Ishah Woman's Voice TOK *?li?
Five-Part Series Kicks Off August 30...
Women's Leadership Skills Seminar
Federation Gifts in Action...
National UJA
Mission to Israel
What does it take to be a leader?
A number of local women look
forward to finding out, as they
participate in the second series of
Leadership Skills Seminars, spon-
sored by the Women's Division.
The success of last year's series
has prompted its reprise, with a
new twist. "Some of the women
who attended the first seminars,
last year, are being asked to
become 'mentors' for new partici-
pants," according to Deborah
Hahn, Women's Division vice
president of Leadership Develop-
ment.
"They will enhance skills
acquired in the previous program
and be able to snare this training
with future leaders," she said.
Beginning Tuesday, August 30,
the five-part series will deal with
specific skills leaders need to work
with people and to set and achieve
goals.
Jane Stein, a member of the
National United Jewish Appeal
Women's Division board, opens
the series with a seminar entitled,
"What Have I Gotten Myself
Into?" She will set the tone for the
series with her discussion of what
it means to be a leader.
"Am I Hearing What I Think
You Are Saying?" Mikki Futer-
nick, who chairs the Florida
Region of the UJA, will present
an entertaining and enlightening
seminar dealing with communica-
tion skills and basic speaker
training, on Thursday, September
8.
Few are better qualified than
Joyce Newman to discuss the role
of the Federation in the Jewish
Community. This former presi-
dent of the Jewish Federation of
South Broward will present the
third seminar, Thursday,
September 29. This discussion of
group dynamics will be presented
by Amy Dean, National UJA
Young Women's Leadership
Conference chairman.
Finally, on October 6, Carol
Effrat will sum up the series with
"The Bottom Line: Tzedakah and
the Meaning of Campaign."
Effrat is the National manager of
the Florida Region of UJA.
Chair Deborah Hahn feels good
about involving new and evolving
leaders in this worthwhile
program. "It should be even more
successful than last year because
of the buddy system," she said.
Each seminar will be held from
9:30 a.m. until noon at the Federa-
tion office.
Esther Lerner, Women's Divi-
sion 1989 Campaign Chairman
recently returned from Israel
where she participated in the
National UJA Women s Division
Chairmen and Directors Mission.
Traveling with Lerner was Toby
Gordon, Women's Division
director. The women, repre-
senting the Fort Lauderdale
Federation Women's Division,
were joined by 55 chairmen and
directors from communities
throughout the United States on
an eight-day tour of Federation-
supported Agencies.
A visit to Chofim, a Youth
Aliyah Village in the North, was
one of the highlights of the trip,
according to Lerner. Comprised
primarily of Ethiopian immi-
grants, Chofim is a testament to
the resiliency of youth. These chil-

The Livnot Mission will take
place from October 22-31. The

There will be a special informa-
tional meeting to find out more
about this Federation/UJA

This year's Livnot Mission Fort
Lauderdale co-chairmen are
Marge and Paul Lehrer, along
with Region Five chairman Scott
Rassler.
"Now more than ever we need
to support Israel," declared Paul
Lehrer. "The traditional tourist
has been hesitant about going
we're going to have 1,000 people
25-45 going on this trip and we
will show the world that it's still
safe and enjoyable to go to
Israel."

Israel or your 40th, whether you
are in your 20's, 30's, or 40's,

to early 20's, were smuggled out
of the country usually in the
middle of the night leaving
their parents behind. Many
suffered from typhus and malaria.
Some know their parents were
arrested because the children
escaped. According to Rabbi
Nachum Cohen, the director of
the Village, "They cry themselves
to sleep at night because they miss
their parents and fear they may
never see them again."
Seven hundred children have
been processed through Chofim
since Operation Moses began four
years ago. "They are from a tech-
nologically backward country,"
Rabbi Cohen said, "This is their
first experience with white
people. They don't know about
Purim, Hanukah or Hebrew.
Their Judaic reference is King
Solomon. Their Judaism is 90
generations old."
BBYO HONORS
VOLUNTEERS
The BBYO's North Dade/
Broward/Palm Beach Adult
Board of Directors recently held
its 2nd Annual Volunteer Recog-
nition Day.
The purpose of the program was
to honor the many people who
volunteer their time and efforts to
help provide service to the over
500 Jewish teens who are
members of the B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization in the Gold
Coast Council. Over 100 adults
and youth leaders were in attend-
ance.
BBYO primarily utilizes volun-
teers of two types: those who
serve on its Adult Board of
Directors, which raises and distri-
butes funds, establishes policies
and oversees and assists in the
operation and growth of the local
program; and those who serve as
Advisors to the various AZA
(boys) and BBG (girls) chapters,
thereby working directly with the
youth.
Highlights of the program
included the Installation cere-
mony for the new officers of the
Adult Board, the presentation of
gifts and certificates to the
chapter Advisors, and a
marvelous skit performed by the
youth themselves in honor of
those same Advisors. It was a
most entertaining and inspiring
program.
According to Jerry Kiewe,
Assistant Regional Director,
"Volunteers" play a key role in
the provision of service to our
members and it is only fitting
that we set aside this time to offer
our admiration and our thanks.
For more information about the
BBYO and its activities, contact

accepted as legitimate in the Soviet Union. His wife, Natasha, 45,
was also dismissed from her job as a computer programmer. The
Khasins have repeatedly been harassed by the KGB, their
apartment raided and religious objects and Hebrew books
confiscated. In one raid, their vital emigration invitation from
Israel was taken. The Khasins have two daughters, Alyona, 23,

Doctors Needed to Help 10,000 Jews Left in Ethiopia
The Religious Action Center of
Reform Judaism and the Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC) are
trying to identify doctors and
other medical personnel who
might be interested in traveling
(all expenses paid, spouse
included) to Ethiopia for six
months or more to care for those
who need medical care.
Through Project REAP and
JDC projects, doctors provide on
the spot medical care to all of the
people (Jews and non-Jews alike)
living in the Gondar region of
Ethiopia.
There are still over 10,000 Jews
left in Ethiopia. These are the
Jews who could not leave through
"Operation Moses" in 1985
because they were either too old,
young, or sick to make the diffi-
cult journey to Sudan. These Jews
desperately need medical care.
Any doctor, nurse, physical/
occupational therapist, or other
medical personnel who might be
interested in this project should
contact Glenn Stein at the Reli-
gious Action Center, 2027 Massa-
chusetts Avenue NW, Wash-
ington, D.C., 20036. The phone
number is (202) 387-2800.

Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies
Creating A Legacy
For the 21st Century
Reinste i n, Chairman
Joel
How To Leave A
Legacy For Tomorrow
Here are several ways you can
invest in our community and
receive personal benefits.
Philanthropic Fund: A named
fund established by means of cash,
property, or other assets. The
donor has the privilege of making
advisory recommendations for the
distribution of the income or prin-
cipal of the Fund.
Charitable Remainder Trust:
A trust which pays you 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 benefici-
aries.
Charitable Land Trust: An
arrangement in which there is a
contribution of an income interest
to a charity. Property is trans-
ferred to a trust and an immediate
income interest in the property is
donated to a charitable organiza-
tion for a period of years or for the
life or lives of the individual or
individuals. The remainder is
either retained by the donor or
given to a non-charitable benefic-
iary.
Friday, July 29, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 11
Windfall Gifta: 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 institu-
tions or areas of interest.
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
premiums may then be deducted
as a charitable contribution.
Glossary Of Terms
In order to educate our readers
about endowment and legacy
development, we will define
several terms.
Bequest: A gift by will of prop-
erty, a legacy.
Devise: Specific gift of real or
personal property made under a
will to a designated beneficiary.
Endowment Fund: A fund
established by an individual
donor, family or foundation,
consisting of gifts that provide a
source of income for the future.
Estate Tax: The tax imposed by
the Federal or state governments
on the assets of a decedent.
Personal Representative: A
person named by the decedent in
his or her will whose function it is
to carry out the provisions of the
will.
Probate: The legal proceeding
involved in validating a will and
administering an estate.
Trust: An arrangement where a
trustee holds and distributes prop-
erty for the benefit of named or
described individuals or charities
according to the instructions of
the grantor or testator.
Pooled Income Fund: A trust
created and administered by a
public charity. The contributor
receives income during his life-
time. The charity receives the
remainder principal after the life-
time of the income beneficiary.

community for tomorrow. Please send me more infor-

DIRECTOR OF JCC EARLY
CHILDHOOD SCHOOL'S
FIRST BRANCH NAMED
Maria Tauber, Director of JCC's
first branch of its Early Childhood
School, begins her term of office
this fall on the east side of town.
With their new classroom facil-
ities bright and ready, Temple Bat
Yam, on N.E. 14th Terrace, will
welcome more than 30 children to
their JCC structured and staffed
fire-school program. Featuring
earning-readiness, socialization
and Judaica, the curriculum will
also include enrichment, with
specialists in the fields of art,
dance and music, making regular
visits to school.
"We're also going to have
programming for the whole
family," says Tauber. "All of us
involved, especially the parents
we have talked to, are confident
and happy to start a parents
group and to be in on the begin-
ning of a good Jewish pre-school
on the east side. It'll be a real
challenge to see it happpen!"
Tauber is well qualified to take
the lead. On the Center's Early
Childhood staff since Fall '85, she
started as an assistant teacher for
pre-kindergarteners and in '86
and '87, she was a head teacher
for the same age group.
For the past two summers,
Tauber has served on the JCC
summer camp staff as senior
counselor for half-day groups. But
this year she has a new title: Unit
Head of Camp Katan for children
four and five years old. One
hundred and seventy children,
divided into nine groups, are in
her charge.
ALL ABOUT THE TAUBERS
Along with sons Aaron, 7, and
Glenn, 5, the Taubers moved to
Plantation just four years ago. On
their way from their native
Northern New Jersey, Maria and
Steven stopped off in Charlotte,
North Carolina for some time,
where Maria studied at the
University of North Carolina and
earned her Bachelor's Degree in
Psychology with a minor in social
work. She worked for agencies in
the state's Mecklenberg and
Union counties for five years.
An Eligibility Specialist for
Medicaid, she supervised five
workers and also worked for the
Food Stamp, Nursing Home
Placement and Fraud Unit
programs, taking a little time out
to have their two sons. Mean-
while, Maria's husband Steven
made strides in his career as a
retail store manager in the area.
In Florida, he continues to excel in
his field and presently manages a
major retail establishment in the
city.
Switching careers to teaching
came about naturally for Maria
Tauber. Since both Aaron and
Glenn are JCC Early Childhood
graduates, she has had ample
opportunity to observe the merits
of the program. Realizing how
much she enjoys being around
kids, she decided to be part of it.
Proving to be a gifted teacher,
administrator and organizer,
Maria Tauber's talents will now
travel east with her where she
hopes to produce many more
"honors" graduates of JCC's Pre-
school Eastside.
The JCC is a major beneficiary
agency of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale,
receiving funds from the annual
United Jewish Appeal campaign.

Farewell to a Dear Friend and Colleague...
Deer field Beachl Century Village's Herman Plavin
"He gave his all to both his
family and his extended family,
and will be deeply missed."
The words of Samuel Miller,
Federation life member and UJA
Condominium Division chairman,
who expressed the profound senti-
ments of tens of thousands of
Deerfield Beach/Century Village
and North Broward community
residents about their friend and
colleague, the late Herman
Plavin, who recently passed away.
One of the leading members of
the Federation/UJA team, Plavin,
since coming to South Florida
some nine years ago from his
native New Jersey, has devoted
unstintingly of his time and gener-
osity in helping his brethern in
need. As general chairman of this
year's UJA drive in Deerfield
Beach/Century Village, he was
instrumental through his leader-
ship, in achieving the largest total
dollar amount, a record $270,000,
in the 20 year history of the
Jewish community's major philan-
thropy.
"He was a man for all seasons,
engaged in every charitable and
Herman Plavin
human pursuit asked of him," said
Miller. He continued, "The
Plavins have been great and
inspirational members of the
community and only recently,
Herman presented his wife Elsie
with her personal Women's Divi-
sion 'Lion of Judah' pin for her
devotion and commitment to the
campaign.
His tradition and concern for his
brethren are reflected in his two
sons, Teddy, who made Aliyah to
Israel some 18 years ago, and
Richard, a rabbi in Connecticut,
who have provided the same
concern and feeling for all things
Jewish.
In a special proceeding, Federa-
tion president Harold L. Oshry
had presented an outstanding
leadership award to Herman
Plavin at the May Annual
Meeting, which read in part, ". .
an expression of thanks on behalf
of the million of Jewish people
throughout the world who benefit
from your effort."
To you, Herman Plavin, we
have all been enriched by your
endeavor and your example!

Teachers Recognized
for Professional Growth
Forty teachers in the syna-

were awarded Professional Incen-
tive Program (PIP) grants by the
Central Agency for Jewish Educa-
tion for participating in seminars,
workshops and study sessions
during the current school year.
The grants, announced at the
closing supper meeting held at
Temple Beth Israel, are provided
by the Jewish Federation of Ft.
Lauderdale as an incentive to
teacher growth and development
and enhancement of both know-
ledge and competencies in the
classroom.
Among the workshops held
during the year were those
conducted by the Kohl Teacher
Center of Chicago, recognized as
the leading Jewish Teacher
Center in the country. Dr. Morton
Siegel, Director of Education of
the United Synagogue of America
addressed the teachers as did Joel
Grishaver, publisher of the Torah
Aura educational materials and
leading figure in Jewish Educa-
tion. Professor Ron Wolfson of
the faculty of the University of
Judaism led sessions on
"Teaching Shabbat in the Reli-
gious School" and on "Parent

ment of Bible of the Hebrew
University.
Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson,

noted that "continuing profes-
sional growth is the mark of a
dedicated teacher, who always
seeks to enrich his/her skills and
understanding. The teachers of
our community have made a
commitment to such enrichment
and consequently, every child that
they teach benefits."

________Chaplaincy Commission Urges__
Compassion for AIDS Victims
At the season ending meeting of
the Jewish Federation's Chap-
laincy Commission, a resolution
was passed urging that strong
measures be taken to prevent the
spread of the AIDS virus and to
deal compassionately with those
who are afflicted with the deadly
disease.
The AIDS epidemic was one of
several topics discussed at the
meeting, which was held at The
Pointe, an Adult Congregate
Living Facility in Fort Lauder-
dale. The Pointe is only one of two
ACLF's in all of Broward that are
Kosher. .
The meeting s guest speaker
was Jeffrey Becker, administrator
Some of the participants at the last meeting of the Jewish
Federation's Chaplaincy Commission were, from left. Federation
President Harold Oshry; Rabbi Mordecai Brill, chaplain. The
Pointe, Jeffrey Becker and Alfred Golden, Chaplaincy Commis-
sion chairman.
Hadassah Presidential Mission to Israel
Over 100 Hadassah presi-
dents from chapters all over
the United States, along with
husbands and children, just
concluded a tour of Israel as
part of Israel's 40th anniver-
sary celebration.
Helen Weisberg, National
Board member from the Miami
region and Marilyn LeVine,
National Board member from
the Florida Central Region
were National Hadassah
representatives on the mission
which included 25 people from
Florida. Mission participants
returned with a renewed
emphasis on the importance of
the American tourist to visit
Israel at this time for econ-
omic, spiritual and morale
reasons and also to have a
wonderful vacation.
Along with touring the
State, the Hadassah Mission
visited the two great Hadassah
Medical Centers in Jerusalem,
the Hadassah Community
College, and Ramat Szold a
Youth Aliyah village servicing
children with special education
needs.
The members of a Hadassah Presidential Mission to Israel
celebrating Israel's Fortieth Anniversary chaired by Roslyn K.
Brecher, center right, included National Board of Hadassah,
members Helen Weisberg, left, and Marilyn LeVine, right, with
Professor Kalman J. Mann, former Director-General of the
Hadassah Medical Organization.
of The Pointe, who spoke about
the need to build more facilities
like The Pointe to meet the needs
of our aging population.
The Adult Congregate Living
Facility (ACLF) is a positive
response in housing for those
seniors who need special care but
are not yet ready for a nursing
home.
As an outcome of the meeting,
the following statement was
issued concerning medical care for
AIDS patients: The Halachic
tradition of visitations of the sick
and the institutionalized, and the
protocol for the burial of the dead
has sensitized the Jewish
community throughout the
centuries to its responsibility for
the sick and the dying. We there-
fore declare that the same Judeo-
biblical heritage we have shared
with the rest of the world dictates
that victims of the AIDS disease
be given proper medical attention
and care. We recognize the risks
involved in this care have statisti-
cally been proven minimal. No
human being should be deprived
of medical care under these
circumstances. It behooves the
medical community to use proper
safeguards to prevent infection,
and to provide this medical care to
all victims of the AIDS disease.
JERUSALEM The
Jewish National Fund said
recently that the forest and
brush fires that did exten-
sive damage in Israel
during a recent heat wave
were mainly the result of
human negligence.

Prayer for
Integrity
Help me, 0 Lord to search my
heart.
To fix my errant path.
Do I live falsely in my way?
Did I bestir Thy wrath?
Am I disposed toward other Jews
Acording to Thy plan?
Didst Thou not also bring to life
An empathic clan?
Do I eat all my bread alone
Not sharing it with those
Who have no home who fight
the cold,
But in pathetic clothes?
Do I make gold my hope, and say,
"You are my only pride"?
Do I boast my wealth is great;
Naught else is bonafide?
0 G-d, dost Thou not hear this
prayer?
In Thy Light, let me see.
Help me, 0 Lord, to search my
heart,
And find Integrity.

Arson
as a Tactic
"There have been 333 arsons
throughout Israel over the last six
months; 125 of them apparently
have had a nationalist back-
ground," according to Israeli
Minister of Police Haim Bal-Lev
(Kol Yisrael, June 14). Bar-Lev
said police hold 39 suspects, 19 of
whom have confessed to charges.
Fire squads and surveillance
were increased after PLO leaflet
19 called for the destruction of
forests and agricultural property,
Israel radio added. Meanwhile, a
station believed linked to
the PLO's Democratic Front for
the Liberation of Palestine noted
that "Zionist circles believe that
this series of fires has moved the
uprising inside the so-called green
line; that is, 1948 Palestine" (AI-
