In Memory of a Dear Friend and Federation Leader
Businessman and Philanthropist
Fort Lauderdale's John Streng
"A captain of industry, humani-
tarian and philanthropist whose
boldness, vigor and determination
provided the extraordinary lead-
ership that was instrumental in
the on-going success of our Feder-
ation/UJA one who will always
remain in the annals of our
community and live forever in our
hearts."
These were the words of Feder-
ation president Harold L. Oshry
who expressed the feelings of the
Federation officers, board of
directors and family of contribu-
tors when he referred to fellow
board member and friend, East
Fort Lauderdale's John Streng,
who passed away in July after a
long illness.
Special memorial services were
held at Temple Bat Yam, in Fort
Lauderdale, and the funeral cere-
mony in Louisville, Kentucky.
Throughout his lifetime, John
Streng strove to help his
fellowman, not only through his
generosity, kindness and right-
eous deeds, but by reaching out
towards the limitless horizons of
human achievement. This was
best illustrated in the countless
roles he held within the
community. A longtime board
member of Federation, most
recently holding a life member-
ship, he has served as a vice
president, treasurer, executive
John Streng
vice president and chairman of
various committees, including
budget and planning, allocations,
anniversary and campaign,
among others.
In 1986, under John's guidance
as general chairman for the
Federation/United Jewish
Appeal, the six million dollar
marks was broken. In addition, he
has chaired the Oceanside, Major
Gifts, Missions, Professional and
countless major areas and divi-
sions, always lending his wisdom
and experience to advance the
cause of Federation.
But the most renowned effort
that will always be remembered is
the 'day-to conducted at the Federation
Oceanside satellite office, working
from 9 to 5 as the volunteer
extraordinaire of an area that
each year achieves the largest
individual totals in the campaign.
He indeed gave a sensitivity and
commitment to human values
which knew no bounds of personal
sacrifice of time or energy or
substance.
His other organization activities
included Jewish National Fund,
The Volunteer Action Center and
the United Way of Broward
County where he was a president
and board member.
His recognition of honors
included Federation, National
United Jewish Appeal, Jewish
National Fund, State of Israel
Bonds and numerous civic organi-
zations.
To his wife Selma, one of Feder-
ation's and North Broward organ-
izations most involved volunteers,
and daughter Judy, John has
indeed been a pillar and support of
strength. To us at the Federation,
John has been the meaning of
Tzedekah whose handiwork has
touched the lives of thousands of
people, people in every walk of
life, every creed. We will miss you
John!

JNF Responds to Worldwide
Arab Propaganda Offensive
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Jewish National Fund says it
has become the target of a
worldwide propaganda war
against Israel.
Moshe Rivlin, JNF
chairman, himself encountered
a raucous pro-Palestinian
demonstration in Basel, Swit-
zerland, he told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency Tuesday.
He said Arab propagandists
in the United States and
Europe increasingly are
focusing on JNF's long history
of land reclamation, acquisi-
tion and development, pillo-
rying them as anti-Arab activi-
ties.
Rivlin said JNF has opened
its archives to a group of
Hebrew University academi-
cians who are compiling a
rejoinder to a recent, purport-
edly scholarly, study of JNF by
Walter Lehn and Uri Davis.
This book, entitled "The
Jewish National Fund,"
appeared this year under the
prestigious Keagan Paul label
in London and New York.
In other ad-hoc defensive
actions, JNF has vigorously
and successfully shown:
That the Switzerland
Forest, on the hills above
Tiberias, is planted on land
designated for afforestation by
the British Mandate and not,
as claimed in a Swiss news-
paper, on the land of sue Arab
villages.
That the Queen Beatrix of
the Netherlands Forest also
was planted on land reserved
for trees. Dutch television had
questioned the queen's visit to
Israel two years ago on the
grounds that the area of the
forest belonged to a local Arab
village. The headman of that
village, in fact, attended the
forest dedication ceremony
and personally presented a gift
to the queen.
In a wide-ranging interview
with JTA, Rivlin noted a
shrinkage in the size of JNF
missions to Israel, but no
decrease in the number of
White House First Jewish Chief of Staff
WASHINGTON (Special) -
President Reagan has set White
House precedent by appointing
Kenneth Duberstein as his chief of
staff. No Jew has ever held that
office. It makes him a member of
the Cabinet and the highest
ranking government official who
does not require Senate confirma-
tion.
Other Jews have been Cabinet
members, including Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger, Attorney
General Edward Levi, Secretary
of the Treasury Henry Morgen-
thau, Secretary of Labor Arthur
Goldberg and Secretary of
Commerce Philip Klutznick, but
as chief of staff, Duberstein, in
effect has closer official relation-
ship with the President, being his
administrator and coordinator of
governmental developments and
responsibilities at their highest
levels.
The 44 year old Brooklyn-born
specialist in governmental affairs
began his career as an intern 23
years ago in the office of the
renowned Sen. Jacob Javits (R.,
N.Y.).
He will supervise the White
House staff of 325 employees and
coordinate the activities of nine
White House groupings with their
1,100 personnel.
Those groupings include the
National Security Council, the
Office of Management and
Budget, the Office of the Vice
President, the Council of Econ-
omic Advisors and the Office of
the U.S. Trade Representative.
Tallahassee Fly-In Salutes
Israel s 40th Anniversary
At a frenetic pace, over 100 Jewish Federation leaders from
around the state charged through the Capitol's corridors meeting
with legislators on behalf of the poor, indigent, and homeless.
These leaders converged on Tallahassee for a stimulating day of
briefings, lobbying, and a special ceremony commemorating
Israel's 40th Anniversary.
Representatives Fred Lippman, Elaine Bloom, and Senators
Jack Gordon and Ken Jenne, pleaded with the group to let state
lawmakers know loud and clear that Jewish leaders are not just
one-issue people interested only in Israel.
Later in the day, the House and senate passed a strongly
worded Resolution recognizing the 40th Anniversary of Israel,
and recalling the remarkable accomplishments of the state of
Israel. The Florida Senate also passed a resolution sponsored by
Senator Weinstein, calling for the resignation of Austrian
President Waldheim. Following the ceremony, the legislators
were treated to a beautiful luncheon in the Old Capitol.
Commissioner Doyle Connor spoke of his recent trip to Israel and
his intention to establish specific agricultural programs between
Israel and Florida. Israel's Ambassador Timor accepted Commis-
sioner Connor's proposal, and pledged full cooperation.
SENA TE PRESIDENT John Vogt presented a Fort Lauderdale
contingent with a proclamation commemorating the tOth anni-
versary of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
The resolution was introduced by State Senator Peter Weinstein.
The Fort Lauderdale group was participating in the annual
"Fly-In" to Tallahassee sponsored by the Florida Association of
Jewish Federations. Pictured, from left, are State Senator Peter
Weinstein; Rabbi Mark Gross of Temple Beth Orr; Joel TsUes,
CRC director; Senator Jim Scott; Esther Cannon, Hadassah
Regional chairperson; attorney Martin Lipnack; Rabbi David
Gordon; and Senate president John W. Vogt.
ATA RECENT Jewish National Fund breakfast was Natan Sas,
Regional manager for the Central Region Forest Department for
the Keren Kayemeth Israel Land Development Authority. Sas
currently on a JNF tour to raise $5-6 million to help equip
Israel's fire fighting arsenal, which is having difficulty coping
with blazes caused by Palestinian arsonists. Shown here are
Federation leaders Helene and Samuel Soref being congratulated
by Mr. Sas, left, for donating $100,000 towards the purchase of
fire engines for the Israeli Forest Department.
As the President's foremost
assistant, Duberstein in effect will
be the business manager of
government overlooking the day
to day affairs for the President.
With an office in the west wing of
the White House, he has direct
access to the President at any
hour and on any occasion.
In practice, the NSC director, at
present Gen. Colin Powell, shares
responsibility of directly
informing the President on
foreign affairs. Reagan also set
precedent in selecting Powell for
the NSC post, the first time a
Black is at that level of responsi-
bility in the White House.
Duberstein, whose annual
salary in his new post is $89,500,
has been deputy since March
1987, to Howard Baker, who
resigned June 14 as chief of staff.
When the former Senate Repub-
lican leader unexpectedly
announced his departure, the
President immediately promoted
Duberstein, effective July 1.
"Ken will be my principal aide
and will lead the White House
staff we head into the home
stretch," Reagan said in a state-
ment. He lauded Duberstein as an
"outstanding manager and skilled
strategist who has been funda-
mental to the significant accom-
plishments, foreign and domestic"
of his administration since
becoming Baker's deputy.
In the 16 months as Baker's
deputy, Duberstein has been the
key detail official at the White
House, the importance of which
has been publicly appreciated by
both Reagan and Baker who are
generalists, White House officials
said.
"He's quite a miracle worker, so
I wouldn't put anything
past him," said Navy Secretary
William L. Ball III. "One of the
great things about Ken is that he's
not only smart, likeable and
successful, he's a Washington
Capitals (hockey) fan and he eats
in McDonald's," said Richard
Darman, a former deputy
secretary of the Treasury.
Duberstein, called "a committed
Jew" by Washington friends, and
his wife, the former Sydney
Greenberg, are the parents of
three children Jennifer 13,
Jeffrey 3, and Andrew, 1. He is a
graduate of Franklin and Marshall
College, American University and
New York Law School.
The fifth chief of staff in the
Reagan White House, Duberstein
was in the General Services
Administration in the Nixon and
Ford Administrations and a
deputy undersecretary of labor
for President Ford.
When Reagan became Presi-
dent in January 1981, he was
named to his congressional liaison
staff which he headed from
January 1982, until December
1983, when he joined Timmons
and Co., a Washington lobbying
concern, as a vice president.
When Baker became chief of staff
he persuaded Duberstein to
return.
those missions as a result of
concern over the security situ-
ation here.
He stressed that JNF
income for the 1987-1988 fiscal
year, just ended, was statisti-
cally up, and indicators for
1988-1989 are favorable.
No Effect On Financial
Support
Rivlin said the same situa-
tion was reflected in United
Jewish Appeal and Keren
Hayesod forecasts. "Jews are
asking lots of questions,"
Rivlin said, "but they are not
stopping their financial
support."
Rivlin's own recent experi-
ence in the propaganda war
took place on what was to have
been a festive planting in Basel
of 40 trees, brought specially
from Israel by the canton to
mark Israel's 40th anniversary
and to hark back to the city's
role in the cradle of the Zionist
undertaking. The first Zionist
Congress was held in Basel in
1897.
The JNF chairman and his
cousin, David Rivlin, the
Israeli ambassador to Switzer-
land, were invited to attend
the ceremony, which the
canton parliament was deter-
mined to hold, despite public
pressure to cancel the event.
About 400 hundred people
took part in a demonstration
rotesting the planting. The
wiss police allowed 50 of
them to attend the ceremony
itself for just five minutes.
Rivlin recalls the Palestine
Liberation Organization flags
and kaffiyeh scarves, the whis-
tling and jeering as the Israeli
ambassador began his address.
The hostility of that anti-
Israel demonstration
contrasted sharply, Rivlin
said, with the atmosphere of
"true friendship" at an official
dinner later that day, attended
by most of the canton minis-
ters and the speakers of the
canton parliament.
Moving on to the subject of
JNF financing, Rivlin stressed
that although there had been
no fall in income, JNF could
achieve more if it had more
funds.
The total budget for the
present fiscal year is $75
million, of which more than
two-thirds is allocated for
actual land development. This
pays for heavy earth-moving
equipment, wages for tractors,
drivers and foresters, as well
as sapling nursery costs. The
balance covers rents, debt
payments, educational
projects, public relations and
administration.
Two recent JNF projects
which have already proven
themselves, Rivlin said, are
the Reshafim Dam in the Bet
Shean Valley and the Eshet-
Hadassah Dam in the northern
Negev. These dams saved
precious water that would
otherwise have been lost
during this year's heavy rains.
"Now," Rivlin added, "the
JNF has to cope with pressure
from everyone to build more
dams."
Another area of JNF activity
is road-building for small new
settlements. "The future of
these outposts depends on the
availability of education for
the local children," Rivlin
stressed. Each small settle-
ment cannot support its own
school, so there is an urgent
need for roads to link them
together.
A Stadium For Galilee
One current project in
Galilee, which JNF is working
around-the-clock to complete
by July, will provide badly
needed employment in the
North and will also draw tour-
ists to the area.
The project is an unusual one
for JNF. Workers are
preparing the earthworks for a
large stadium in Carmiel, to be
completed in time for a dance
festival organized as part of
Israel's 40th anniversary cele-
brations.
"We are working with the
aid of the Jews of Montreal,"
Rivlin said, "to bring 20,000
people to the center of the
Galilee."
All over the country JNF
also continues in its traditional
afforestation role. Nearly a
third of all the plantings this
year will be in the Negev,
Rivlin said, as part of the
ongoing effort to push back
the desert.
More trees will be allocated
for the hills around the Sea of
Galilee to create shady areas
for vacationers who at present
compete for space at the lake-
shore.
As the green belt being
planted by JNF around Jeru-
salem matures, more picnic
areas and sports facilities can
. be developed. The forests to
the west of the city are already
planted and developed, Rivlin
said.
The ares to the north are
now ready for development,
and JNF plans to double the
number of trees in the Shalom
Forest, on the eastern side of
the capital, overlooking the
Judean desert.

conscious of who I was and
where I came from.
Question: Your first trip
to Israel was in 1976.
What was the impact?
Answer: Physically
being there and being
among so many Jews from
different cultures had an
enormous impact on me.
Question: Are you plan-
ning to go back after the
campaign?
Answer: I've been there
five times already and my
whole family looks
forward to going back
again.
Question: You have
three children. What reli-
gion, if any, do they prac-
tice?
Answer: They consider
themselves half Jewish
and half Greek. My
husband is Greek
Orthodox and the children
have shared the richness
of both our heritages.
Question: Do they prac-
tice in any of the Jewish
customs and traditions?
Answer: Yes, they go to
synagogue with me on the
High Holy Days and
shared our Passover Seder
for the last 24 years with
three other families, and
these people will be invited
to the White House as
well.
Question: If you could do
it over again, would you
have raised your children
more Jewish?
Answer: Michael feels
very strongly about his
religious background and
we made a decision before
we were married that we
would raise our children
with both.
Question: As a teenager,
did you have negative feel-
ings about Jews and
Judiasm?
Answer: Nothing nega-
tive. I was brought up in
an almost totally Jewish
atmosphere at home and
school. Although growing
up in a very middle class
Jewish neighborhood, I
didn't think that there
were any poor jews in the
world. Most of my friends

came from wealthy fami-
lies and I learned more and
my feelings changed when
I went to college.
Question: Should Amer-
ican Jewish voters give
any extra consideration to
voting for Michael because
his wife is Jewish?
Answer: Absolutely not.
I think we did away with
the relevance of religion
when Kennedy ran in
1960. There should be a
separation of church and
state and religion should
not be a determinant.
Question: Why do you
spend a great deal of time
talking about your Jewish-
ness on the campaign
trail?
Answer: I am proud of
my background.
Question: Who would
you say is the underdog,
Israel or the Palestinians?
Answer: I think that's
an unfair question. I think
that we have had a tradi-
tion of support for Israel
and that would continue
under my husband's very
strong support. I think
that a coming of age in
Israel means accepting the
fact the rest of the world
isn't always going to agree
with her.
Question: There are
many Jews who are in or
near the inner circle of
Sour husband's campaign,
lost of these are not
Jewish leaders.
Answer: That is abso-
lutely not true. Hyman
Bookbinder has joined the
SEN. LLOYD BENTSEN (D-Texas), whom Michael Dukakis
named as his vice presidential running mate, is considered to have
been largely sympathetic to the concerns of the Jewish
community during his 18 years in the Senate, although he has
supported arms sales for Arab countries.

Jewish Committee in

Question: Who is in the
mainstream other than
Hyman Bookbinder?
Answer: I'm just not
sure of people's affiliations
so I can't tell you off the
top of my head.
Question: As a member
of the Anti-Defamation
League, does it disturb
you that even if you
become first lady, that
there are many private
clubs that would not have
you as a member because
of your religion?
Answer It disturbs me
not only because of my
own religion, but as a
result of what I've learned
as an American, that
should have no place in our
society. For Jews, Blacks,
Mexican Americans and
Asian Americans.
Question: Assuming
your husband wins, how
would you want his term in
office be noted in history?
Answer: I would want
him to be the kind of
caring, compassionate
leader that I've known him
to be in his home state. I
would want him to work
even beyond what Presi-
dent Reagan has done in
terms of the peace and
stopping the threat of
nuclear arms, and to
create economic opportu-
nities for all of the people
in this country.
Editor's Note: The following editorial referred to by Kitty
Dukakis appeared in the Denver Intermountatn Jewish News.
The Hushed Up Quandary Which Kitty Dukakis Could Create
for the Jewish Community
Nobody's talking about it, at least out loud. We find it difficult
to believe that nobody's thinking about it.
We refer to the possibility of a Jew married to a Gentile in the
White House.
Personal decisions, made privately, are one thing. Personal
decisions, with a public edge, are something else.
A person's decision whom to marry is just that, personal. But
the possibility of a Kitty Dukakis in the White House is hardly a
mere personal matter. The Presidency is the most public arena in
the world.
We are not talking here about anyone's rights, including the
Dukakis.' Anyone can marry anyone they want and run for any
political office they want.
But the quandary remains: What kind of a role model would
Kitty Dukakis be for our Jewish children?
Here we have a Jewish woman who might very well become, by
virtue of her possible position, the most prominent Jewish woman
in the United States. She might very well hold a seder in the
White House and be visible Jewishly in any number of ways.
Again, the issue is not her rights, nor, even, her personal religious
stature. In other circumstances, the effort of an intermarried Jew
to hang on to his or her tradition could be highly commendable.
But we're not talking here about other circumstances. We're
talking about a woman who married out, who reportedly does not
even raise her children exclusively in the Jewish tradition, and
who might well be projecting all this from the most visible arena
in the world.
What kind of a role model is this for Jewish children? Only the
naive can believe that Kitty Dukakis will not be an object of
attention and admiration by Jewish children, especially if seders,
and the like, become visible in the White House.
What about Jewish organizations? On the one hand, how can a
Jewish organization honor a Kitty Dukakis as a "Jewish leader?"
On the other hand, let's be realistic: a Jewish organization might
very reasonably feel that it should extend a hand to the wife of the
President of the United States. It is one thing for Jewish
individuals or organizations courageously to oppose policy of the
United States there is a tradition of this, extending at least as
far back as the late Abraham Joshua Heschel's courageous
defiance of President Lyndon Johnson's conduct of the Vietnam
War. It is quite something else to take actions that can easily be
construed as personal opposition to the President of the United
States personal in the strictest sense of the word.
American Jews do things these days that Jews have never done
before in Jewish history, at least not on the present scale.
American Jews do them for various reasons. But we have yet to
hear from any Jew that it is an ideal to marry out. We have heard
there are ways to cope if one does marry out, that there are, in
some cases, hidden cross-cultural strengths transmitted to chil-
dren in an intermarriage, that it is possible in an intermarriage to
retain a far greater Jewish identity than one might imagine, that
intermarriage might become a secret demographic resource for
the Jewish people.
Ignoring, for the moment, the very sharp controversy in the
Jewish community around each of these approaches, they all have
one thing in common a commonality that a Kitty Dukakis in the
White House would render obsolete.
They are all after-the-fact perspectives.
They all cope with realities already created.
They all respond to intermarriage once it has taken place.
The prospect of Kitty Dukakis in the White House presents
something radically different: the prospect of glamour attaching
to intermarriage. The prospect of intenriarriage becoming not
something to be coped with after the fact, but sought out before
the fact, valued intrinsically a legitimate goal for our Jewish
children.
AsJf- *" t*1'8 were not worr>some enough, we foresee a
possibility of demogoguery over this a Jewish organizational
competition to extend to Mrs. Dukakis every Jewish courtesy
without any accompanying, firm statement on the unsuitability of
intermarriage as a Jewish ideal.

Summertime Vacation Special Time in Europe...
Jewish Wedding in France
By MURIEL HASKELL
The Jewish wedding in Paris is
very much like the Jewish
wedding I've been to in Ft. Laud-
erdale or New York or Chicago. If
the families can do it, they go all
out to plan a sentimental cere-
mony down the aisle and the most
elaborate of receptions after-
wards. Food, wines, flowers,
music must be the best. And the
gowns for m'ladies in the bridal
party are sure to be breathtaking
and designer-bred. However, if
there's a comparison to be made
let's make the French the
winners when it comes to scaling
the heights of elegance.
To be able to make this observa-
tion, I flew across the sea to see
the Jewish wedding of my
daughter-in-law's sister, Pascale
The rabbi and couple, Pascale
Madie and Pierre Imbert.
Madie of Toulon, (on the Mediter-
ranean), and Pierre Imbert of
Lyon (southeast France), who
were married in Paris in June.
Why Paris? Why Not? For these
reasons: 1. Most of the aunts and
uncles live there. 2. Every loyal
French citizen values the opportu-
nity to spend a little time in the
city he adores, the culture/
glamour capital of the world. 3.
Paris and its environs today
houses 70 synagogues, giving the
bride's parents options to make
the right choice. 4. Paris has the
most handsomely appointed
restaurant salons available for
serving an outstanding kosher
dinner.
The Jewish wedding in France
is a three part affair. After
obtaining the license and the
health documents, the couple
must first be married in a civil
ceremony in a Mayor's office.
(This is mandatory, no matter
what religion.) Usually the whole
family attends and many did make
the three hour train trip to Lyon
to see Pascale and Pierre married
on the Thursday preceeding their
Sunday wedding.
Part two is the religious cere-
mony. For the Jewish people this
is always performed in a syna-
gogue whether the families are
devout observers or not. Part
three is the grand dinner recep-
tion.
THE JEWS OF FRANCE
The bride is gorgeous, 25 years
old and she has the French equiva-
lent of a Master's in Business
Administration. She is of
Sephardic origins. The groom, 32,
tall, dark and handsome, is a
doctor practicing oral surgery in
Lyon. He is of Ashkenazic back-
ground. Their families are loving
and compatible.
France's Jewish population
today numbers 650,000, the
fourth largest population segment
of Jewish people in the world.
Sixty percent of them are
Sephardic, the rest Ashkenazic.
Emigrating from North Africa in
the 50s and 60s when their, coun-
tries gained independence, the
Sephardim have preserved their
folklore, culinary habits and close
knit family relationships. It used
to be the norm to marry within
their own; to do otherwise was
frowned upon by the elders.
Today, these restrictive attitudes
no longer exist. And so it appears
that the Sephardic and the
Ashkenazic cultures will meld in
the years to come. It is also
recognized that the coming of the
Sephardim was responsible in
large measure for the growth and
respect for Judaism in France.
Not that the contribution of the
Ashkenazim is to be ignored. They
have been absorbed into the
French lifestyle for some
centuries. Today, Jews of both
backgrounds have entered top
levels of government, industry
and the media. Today, Paris has
100 kosher butchers, new paro-
chial schools flourish and there
are three radio stations
presenting programs of Jewish
interest only.
AT THE SYNAGOGUE
The Synagogue de Neuilly on
the rue Ancelle in the heart of
Paris was the setting for the
Sunday Madie/Imbert wedding
ceremony at four in the afternoon.
A modest gray stucco structure, it
appears to have been built in the
30 8. Its pews are highly polished
dark wood. Built-in benches
surround the Rabbi's lectern on
the Bimah so that family members
may watch and also take part in
the proceedings. The Chupah
looks like it was made of white
satin.
The bridal procession was
simple. The only attendants
walking down the aisle other than
the parents and Pascale's grand-
mother, was another young couple
children both age six. The
flower girl was the bride's niece
(my granddaughter) in white
ruffles and the ring-bearer, a
cousin, in a mini tux. The bride, a
vision in intrically draped white
satin and tulle, walked down the
aisle to the familiar organ
wedding music, traditionally, on
the arm of her father.
The Synagogue de Neuilly in
Paris provided the setting for
the wedding.
Anyone in North Broward
County planning a trip to the
Soviet Union, please contact
Joe Telles, Community Rela-
tions Committee Director at
the Jewish Federation, 748-
8400, for more information or
an orientation.
The Ashkenazic ceremony was
hardly brief. To warm up for the
ceremonies ahead, the Rabbi, in
Tallis and black fedora, talked to
the seated bridal couple and the
family members around them for
a good twenty minutes. His words
of wisdom delivered in fast
French were beyond the compre-
hension of an American who
loves, but knows too little of the
language. However, whatever he
said caused ripples of laughter
here and there, as well as many
nods of approval.
The Shamos, dressed like Napo-
leon in a large boat shaped hat and
suit decorated with braid, assisted
the Rabbi in the ceremonies.
These included the "tallis cere-
mony" whereby both the bride
and groom are covered together
under one shawl and a ring
exchange ritual by the couple. The
groom also smashed the glass to
hearty mazeltovs.
THE GRAND FINALE
The wedding dinner reception
took place in the woods, a lush
natural forest vast in size, in the
middle of Paris. Called the "Bois
de Boulogne", it houses, in addi-
tion to its natural flora and fauna,
several elegant restaurants whose
structures resemble French
manor houses. Such was the Pre
Catalan, surrounded by mani-
cured lawns and June flowers in
bloom. This richly appointed
establishment is closed to the
public on certain days, allowing
feasts like this to take place.
The reception at seven began
with an hour of hors d'oeuvres of
infinite variety accompanied by
fine wines and spirits. The dinner
following featured all kinds of fish
specialities in a series of many
courses paraded in by waiters.
After several desserts the
wedding cake was rolled in
looking as tall as the Eiffel Tower.
Fashioned out of praline candy
tiers, each tier was filled with
chocolate mousse and decorated
with hundreds of colorful bon
bons.
It was a joy to see the wedding
couple and their exquisitely
gowned and suited guests cele-
brate on the dance floor. The
band, a fifteen piece group
complete with electronic effects
and a male and female vocalist,
hardly ever stopped playing from
eight 'til two in the morning! If a
musician took a break, one never
noticed, there were so many of
them up there. Their music alter-
nated between current modern
rock and lively Israeli folk. And
many times during the evening
the young strong male stalwarts
among the guests tied the bride
and groom on to chairs and
paraded them high above the
crowd on the dance floor to the
accompaniment of much cheering
and shouts of mazeltovs.
The fact that there was a work
day beginning in a few short hours
did not seem to deter the guests,
children and grandparents
included. The band played on for
more horas, more disco, and the
Keople stayed on, reluctant to
ave this most happy affair come
to an end. It was a pleasure to
share in the joy. In a word, it was
magnifique.

Federations Advocate for
Social Service Causes
AIDS: New sweeping legislation provides for education in
public schools, and among health care professionals. The Bill has a
tough anti-discriminatjon clause and insurance companies are
prohibited from canceling policies because of aids. Representative
Lois Frankel deserves tremendous praise for her compassion and
dedication in developing this Bill.
HOMELESS: After intense negotiation between the Governor-
House-Senate, the Legislature appropriated $5.6 million for
emergency assistance for the homeless. The Governor and Senate
wanted significantly less funding, but the House held firm.
Representative Jamerson and Budget Chairman Sam Bell pushed
consistently for the higher amount.
ELDERLY: The Legislature added 2,086 persons to the
medicaid nursing home program. The state also raised the
optional state supplement paid to ACLF clients for care.
CHILDREN: The state barely made a dent in the 30,000
children on a waiting list for subsidized day care. The state
increased the Title XX program by $5.0 million. The state will
spend over $15 million on a new pre-kindergarten program.
HEALTH CARE: Over $20 million more will be spent in
Florida for indigent health care. Medicaid eligibility will be
expanded to cover children up to the age of 5 with income up to
the federal poverty level.
LEGISLATURE PASSES BILL SAFEGUARDING

Series! Workshops Feature Provocative Programs.
November Launches the
"Time For Me" Happenings
Topics from philosophy to
politics, at home and abroad, will
spice a new lecture/discussion
series sponsored by the Women's
Division of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Selma Telles, in charge of
program development for the
series, has worked with co-chairs
Adrienne Frank and Barbara
Goldstein to tailor the four stimu-
lating workshops to nearly every
woman's schedule.
A "Lunch and Learn" series
will be held from 11:45 a.m. until
1:45 p.m. on Wednesdays, for
women who are free during the
day, or have the flexibility to
extend their lunch hour. The
"Supper and Study" series is set
for 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. on
Monday evenings. The same
topics will be covered both
morning and evening.
The series opens with a discus-
sion of some critical philosophical
questions that could affect all of
our lives. Does modern medical
technology conflict with ancient
Jewish traditions? Miles Bunder,
director of human resources for
the Central Agency for Jewish
Education in Miami, will lead this
program on medical ethics,
including such issues as euthansia,
transplants and cremation. The
evening series begins November
7. The daytime series begins
November 30.
Every woman who is concerned
about our Jewish homeland will
want to attend the second
program led by Al Effrat, regional
director of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee. In
"Israel at 40: Mid-Life Crisis?" he
will cover such topics as the impli-
cations of the elections, Meir
Kahane, "Peace Now" move-
ment, and the West Bank
uprising. The evening session is
planned for December 19. The
daytime program will be
December 14.
The changing role of the reli-
gious Jewish woman will be
explored in the third session.
Sharon Horowitz, principal of
Judaica High School, will lead the
morning session on January 25,
1989, while Shulamit Gittelson,
early childhood director of Temple
Beth Torah in North Miami
Beach, will speak the evening of
January 16. The difficulty of being
observant in the modern world,
and the religious responsibilities
of women will be discussed.
Closing the series, with a discus-
sion of women in politics, will be
two successful politicians. Lauder-
hill Mayor, Ilene Lieberman, will
speak at lunch on February 22,
and Hollywood Mayor, Mara
Giulanti, will speak on the evening
of February 6.
Esther Wolfer, Women's Divi-
sion vice president for education,
has assured us that more informa-
tion for these stimulating and
provocative programs will be
forthcoming. Mark your calendars
now!
The Lion of Judah-
Symbol of Commitment
When you see a woman wearing
a gold lion pin with a diamond or
ruby in its eye, you see a proud
member of Women's Division.
Originating in Miami in 1972,
today the Lion of Judah pin is a
nationally recognized symbol of
commitment for women who
make an independent campaign
gift of $5,000 or more.
The Lion of Judah is first
mentioned in the Bible in the Book
of Genesis. Jacob refers to his son,
Judah, as a "gur aryeh" (a "lion's
whelp"). It is said the House of
David comes from the tribe of
Judah. Through the centuries, the
Lion of Judah has come to
symbolize the entire Jewish
people.
Each year a woman sustains or
increases her $5,000 gift to
Women's Division, she is eligible
to have another diamond set into
the pin. The Lion of Judah pin
with a ruby eye signifies a $10,000
contribution. This year, there are
two new divisions of "Lions"
the Saphire eye, reflecting an
$18,000 commitment and the
Emerald eye, which is given to the
woman who contributes $25,000
or more.
There are currently 92 Lions of
Judah in Women's Division in
Fort Lauderdale. Twenty two of
those have a ruby eye and thirteen
are eligible for a sapphire or
emerald.
In 1975, the Lapis Lion was
created exclusively for Fort Laud-
erdale. The charm, made of 14k
gold, lapis and diamond is given
by Women's Division to women
making an independent campaign
gift of $2500. Originally worn by 7
women, today there are 36.
Fort Lauderdale's women wear
their "Lions" proudly as a
symbol of commitment to the Fort
Lauderdale Federation/United
Jewish Appeal Campaign.
The "Lion of Judah", a UK
gold and diamond pin, symbol-
izes a woman'8 commitment of
$5,000 or more to the Federa-
tion Women's Division.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
In the date listings of events published in the July 29th
issue on the campaign page, the announcement for the
Women's Division Golf and Tennis Day, April 3rd, at
Bonaventure Country Club, the minimum attendance gift
should have read $365. This event will take the place of the
1988 three $100 minimum "Play-A-Days".

A JEW FROM MINSK
AND HIS MOTHER'S WISH
Pesach Aaronovich Gurvich is
an elderly Jew from from Minsk.
He was accepted as a client of
ours while I was away and on my
return insisted on speaking to me.
The translator who passed on his
request to see me apologized,
saying the man who was adamant
about visiting with me but refused
to say why. The man was very
patient and refused to meet with
any other staff member.
Mr. Gurvich walked into my
office, approached me, grabbed
my hand, and kissed it. I was a bit
perplexed, and looked into his
eyes and saw tears. That is not
uncommon, as often transmigr-
ants are grateful for our help. But
this was a bit different.
He composed himself and began
telling me his life story. The
reason for his gratitude was very
moving. He said he was thanking
me at the request of his mother,
long since dead. It seems that in
1919 the family was starving in
Russia after the revolution. They
were saved by donations of food
from JDC. His mother told him
that if he ever met a JDC repre-
sentative, he should express
thanks on behalf of his family that
was saved by the Joint's help. He
felt that today he was carrying out
his mother's wish, even as he,
many years later, was once again
the recipient of JDC's help.
THE SARAJEVO
JEWISH COMMUNITY
Sarajevo does not share many of
the manpower resources indi-
genous to Zagreb and Belgrade,
most formal programs exist for
children and families (Saturday
meetings, holiday
celebrations etc.) for singles,
young marrieds, and couples with
grown children, there is little to
attract them to the community
(according to their description). It
must be remembered that in
Yugoslavia the expression of
Jewish identification is exclu-
sively in a communal context. The
only Jewish "things" one does are
at the community center. There-
fore large numbers of people, for
whom nothing is offered in the
community, let their Jewish iden-
tities lie dormant until they have
children or they are eligible for
some senior's programming.

UNIQUE YESHIVOT
FOR RELEASED PRISONERS
Rabbi Bernard S. Raskas is
Senior Rabbi at the Temple of
Aaron. He and his wife Leah
visited Israel and spent some time
in Yeshivot that are served by
JDC-Israel. He wrote to Stanley
Abramovitch: "There are three
Yeshivot in Israel, among others,
which are pursuing a unique
cause. With the aid of the Amer-
ican Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee, these Yeshivot are not
only answering unmet needs, but
are also deeply humanitarian.
They have pilot projects that
someday may become role models
in social services with a religious
component that provides a special
way to help people."
One of these Yeshivot we visited
v/as located in the section known
as Beit Yisrael, a religious sector,
and probably was the most fasci-
nating of all. Its name is Machane
Yisrael, and its basic purpose is
rehabilitating released prisoners.
It is composed of sixty-five
members, of whom 35 are
married. One is struck immedi-
ately by the stenciled slogan that
appears on each wall: "Sanctify
the Almighty in Life."
Those who make up this group
are individuals who were
convinced of murder, dope
peddling, prostitution, addication,
assault, etc. Again, the program is
one of spending half the time in
study of Jewish texts (mostly the
Talmud) and the other half in
counseling and vocational
training. There is an intense
concern for the individual.

CAMPAIGN '88 Federation /United Jewish Appeal
"More Involvement'CommitmenfParticipation-Our Goal in '89
Federation/UJA Up Front Uniting North Broward Community
"Ours is one of the most chal-
lenging and important jobs in the
North Broward County Jewish
community, and together we will
work as a team representing the
only comprehensive fund-raising
campaign in support of educa-
tional, welfare and community
development programs for our
people here at home, in Israel and
in 33 other countries around the
world."
The words of Barbara K.
Wiener, the East Fort Lauderdale
business and philanthropic leader,
who is the incoming general
chairman of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale/
United Jewish Appeal campaign,
the Jewish community's major
philanthropy.
In an interview with the Flor-
idian, Wiener, who first became
involved and committed to Jewish
work in her native Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, believes that one of
the primary challenges
confronting American Jews today
is to find constructive ways to
react to the challenges Israel is
currently experiencing. As a
leader in the organized Jewish
community, she feels a responsi-
bility not only to support the
Jewish state, but also to make her
views known to others.
She sees her role as an opportu-
nity to "unify the Jewish people as
they have not been unified
before" by stressing the principles
that unite Jews rather than those
that divide them.
"What's been happening in
Israel, for the first time, is that
there are those who seek to divide
Jewish opinion. However,
although many Jews might
approve of a particular decision or
policy, we all believe to the core
of our being that Israel needs to
exist and exist as a strong and
viable state.
During the recent Arab summit
in Algiers, the Arab countries
allocated money to the Palestin-
ians to continue the riots on the
Helping Our Jewish Brethren...
West Bank and Gaza Strip. For
the first time, the Arab countries
admitted they are financing the
riots. If anything ought to moti-
vate the Jewish people to realize
the importance of joining
together, it's that admission."
Wiener, who has held a variety
of Federation volunteer assign-
ments, including Women's
general chairman, Missions,
Community Relations Committee
chairman, Major Gifts, Bonaven-
ture, and Oceanside Divisions,
subscribes to the theory that if
you want to get something done,
you ask a busy person.
Wiener geniunely wants to
increase the scope of the Federa-
tion's UJA campaign throughout
Greater Fort Lauderdale. She is
convinced that a large number of
Jews do not participate in the
campaign either because they
haven't been made to feel that
their participation is important to
those already involved or have
never been asked.
"The fact is, Federation needs
all of us," she said. "More accu-
rately, Federation is all of us."
"As a fund-raiser, the tendency
is to go back to those who have
already shown their commitment
and willingness to help.
Conversely, you spend less time
Barbara Wiener at the site of
the %8 Battle at Latrun on a
Mission to Israel.
than you should cultivating the
field of those who have not partici-
pated in the past. For the sake of
the campaign, that has to change,
and, in fact, it is changing. We
have more gifts than ever before.
But we still don't have as many as
we should, and I would hope that
by the end of the next campaign,
inroads will have been made."
"When properly utilized, the
solicitation process can serve as
an ideal tool to attract new volun-
teers into the Federation fold."
Wiener said, explaining, "There
are people in the community who
say "The only time I ever hear
from Federation is when I'm
being solicited.' But a solicitation,
especially a face-to-face solicita-
tion, is an opportunity for both
sides to exchange thoughts and
ideas, and it should be viewed as
an important interface.
Personally, I'd like to see more
solicitation end with the solicitor
asking, 'How can we get you
involved?' "
For those interested in seeing
Federation dollars at work,
Wiener suggests a mission
either a local mission during
which participants visit Federa-
tion-supported educational,
cultural and social service agen-
cies, or if possible, a mission to
Israel.
"I've been to Israel many, many
times, yet I never tire of the
feeling I get when the plane is just
about to land at Ben Gurion
Airport. It is important for Amer-
ican Jews to go to Israel and get
an upclose look at the Jewish
state, especially now, with the lag
in tourism. In addition to the
personal enrichment it provides, a
trip to Israel demonstrates to
Israelis that we stand behind
them.
Together we can overcome any
and all adversity."

Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies
Creating A Legacy
For the 21st Century
Joel Re instein, Chairman
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
Rabbi Avis Miller of Adas
Israel Organization in Wash-
ington, D.C. leading a work-
shop on "Women in Judaism"
at the recent B'Nai B'rith
Women biennial convention in
Miami Beach.
With Rhyme
and Reason
Woman of Valor
A woman of grit is worth far more
Than the price of gold.
The heart of her husband stays
strong as long
As she is his to hold ...
She does him good, and not evil
Throughout their coupled life;
Strives all she can to run the
household
As a busy wife .. .
Her strength and dignity are
borne
As if they are her clothing,
And she survives in times of
change:
Joyful or foreboding ..
She fills her hands with needed
food,
And gives it to the poor;
Eschews all thoughts of idleness,
The better to endure ...
She kindles Shabbes candles; (how
Dutiful a spouse!)
Through her, G'd's blessings
always will
Be granted to the house.
-Jack Gold
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.
Windfall Gifts: A windfall gift
takes place prior to the sale or
liquidation of a business or the
sale of shares of stock or other
property on which a large capital
gain will be realized. The making
of such gifts at that time can be
achieved at a relatively small
after-tax cost to the donor. There
is a double tax savings resulting
from such gifts.
Special Purpose Fund: The
donor sets up a fund of which the
income from its investments are
designated for specific 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.

MOSAIC Jewish Life in Florida
"Jews in Florida" usually
I conjures up the image of hotels
and rondos on Miami beach and
Jews migrating from the north-
eastern United States in the
1940's. But Jews may have come
to the New World with Chris-
topher Columbus, settled in the
Caribbean, and moved into
Florida in the early 1500's.
Marranos may have come to
Florida with Ponce de Leon in
1513 and Hernando deSoto in
1539.
Popular American Jewish
history has it that the first Jews to
settle in America came from
Recife, Brazil, to New York in
1654. Research can be done
linking passenger lists of those
who left Spain during the Inquisi-
tion, those who traveled to the
Caribbean, and the earliest
settlers in St. Augustine and
Pensacola.
Currently, the oldest existing
proof of Jews in Florida are the
deeds of three Jewish men who
came from New Orleans and
established businesses in Pensa-
cola in 1763. Today the greater
Miami area boasts the third
largest Jewish community in the
country with 600,000 Jewish
population, but at the turn of the
century, there were only two
families living there. The earliest
Jewish settlers were in north
Florida and in Key West.
Communities all over the state
are preparing for a travelling
exhibition of the Jewish experi-
ence in Florida from its earliest
settlers to today. It will show why
Jews came here, where they came
from, what they did here, the
family and institutions they
organized and support, the rela-
tionships with other ethnic
groups, and the contributions
made by Jews to the development
ATHENS Israel sent a
message to Greek Foreign
Minister Karolos Papoulias
condemning the recent
terrorist attack on a Greek
car ferry, and calling for
strong and adequate meas-
ures in order to counter and
eliminate international
terrorism through deter-
mined actions.
of Florida in politics, business,
culture, industry, and more.
By doing oral histories, the
communities are collecting
personal biographies, which
collectively will make up the
MOSAIC. Task forces have been
established in ten Florida commu-
nities to research and document
their histories: Tallahassee, Jack-
sonville, Central Florida
(Orlando), Sarasota, Tampa,
Pinellas County, Pensacola,
Broward Countv. Palm Beach
County, and Miami. Small commu-
nities such as Daytona
Beach, Ocala, Ft. Myers (which
was named for Abraham C.
Meyers, a Jewish West Point
graduate who served as chief
army quartermaster for the
Indian Wars), Live Oak, Quincy,
Lakeland, Naples, Key West, St.
Augustine, and Micanopy are also
being included.
The multi-media exhibit will
include photographs, artifacts,
oral histories, and dioramas and
will be displayed in the ten
communities between 1990-1993
to coordinate with the Columbus
Quincentenary Jubilee.
With complementary educa-
tional programs and materials,
MOSAIC-JEWISH LIFE IN
FLORIDA will portray the accul-
turation process of one ethnic
group as a microcosm of Amer-
ican life.
Those involved on the local task
forces become more enthusiastic
as they gain more knowledge of
the history of our state and the
roles played by Jews. Many were
unaware that when Florida was
admitted to the Union in 1845, a
Jew, David Levy Yulee, was
elected to the U.S. Senate,
making him the first Jew to serve
there. From Orlando, Dr.
Marshall Nirenberg won the
Nobel Prize in Medicine and Phys-
iology in 1968; Admiral Ellis
Zacharias, from Jacksonville,
broke the Japanese code to enable
a U.S. victory in the Pacific in
World War II; Ocala*s Jewish
cemetery opened in 1865 when
Jacksonville already had one since
1850, and by 1882 both Tampa
and Jacksonville had Jewish
mayors who were cousins;
Herman Glogowski and Morris
Dzialynski. Many of the earliest
families came from the same
towns in Rumania. Jews migrated
around the state as steamships,
railroads, roads, wars and other
factors opened up new economic
opportunities.
This is just a small sample of the
story which will be told with
MOSAIC. Two-thirds of the
traveling exhibit will be state-
wide history; when the exhibit
comes to each city, the local
community will contribute
the one-third in family images,
documents, and heirlooms, syna-
gogue documents and ritual
objects, organizational charters
and photos of founders, artifacts,
and other personal, business, and
institutional memorabilia which
make up its own unique history.
A preview of selected images
was shown in Washington in the
Senate Rotunda on May 24th and
in Tallahassee at the Old Capitol
on May 25th.
Dr. Henry Green, Director of
Judaic Studies at the University
of Miami, is the project director.
Laura Hochman of the Soref JCC
in Ft. Lauderdale, and Dr.
Abraham Gittelson of the Central
Agency for Jewish Education are
responsible for administration and
educational materials respec-
tively. Marcia Zerivitz is state
coordinator.

A Special Bond and Connection
With Our Brethren...
BBYO Director and Hillel
Students in Soviet Union
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Jerome Kiewe, assistant
regional director of BBYO in the
Gold Coast Region, was offered
the chance to escort six Rochester
students on a trip to the Soviet
Union. He jumped at the chance.
Along with colleague Simeon
Kolko, a Hillel director, Kiewe
took the Hillel students on a 13-
day trip to the Soviet Union,
which included stops in the cities
of Leningrad, Vilna, Minsk, and
Moscow.
Kiewe stated, "The idea behind
the trip was to continue the
process of visiting the Soviet Jews
and to give the students an exper-
iencial education on the Soviet
Jewry movement and to intensify
their own Jewish identity."
The BBYO director related that
there have been some improve-
ments in recent years regarding
Soviet emigration policies and in
the daily conditions faced by
Soviet Jews, but that changes
seen in the larger context aren't
very significant
Kiewe spoke about the Soviet
Jews and Soviet refusenik fami-
lies that he and the students
visited during their trip.
Kiewe remarked, "Contrasted
with the typically unexpressive
Russian, the Soviet Jew stands
out as a warm and colorful char-
acter. While the Soviet govern-
ment would not appreciate my
sentiment, I think Soviet Jews are
among the U.S.S.R.'s most
appealing attractions for foreign
visitors.'
Each refusenik family has a
fascinating story to tell. Take a
typical refusenik family with
whom the group visited, the
Kazanevichs. Mikhail Kazanevich
was a radio engineer who applied
to leave Russia in 1973 but has
been continually refused permis-
sion to emigrate because of "state
secret reasons." The last time he
got denied, he was also told he
would never get out. But Mikhail
told Kiewe that he doesn't feel too
badly because others who have
been told the same thing have
gotten out. Kazanevich organizes
lectures and courses on Jewish
history for Soviet Jews, his wife is
a hairdresser, and his daughter is
studying computer programming.
Kiewe related that the saddest
part for the family is the pain of
watching other Jews, some
friends, get permission to leave,
while they have to remain.
Another family for which Kiewe
found an immediate, almost
cosmic connection was the Stam-
bler family. Kiewe felt a certain
special bond with family member
Dima Stambler.
"In the first two minutes it was,
as if he had known me all of his
life," said Kiewe. "It was totally
unexpected in terms of the nature'
of our instant friendship."
The Stamblers have been
refused the right to leave since
1979.
Kiewe concluded from this
emotional trip, "You begin to
realize that people over there are
no different from you and I, the
only difference is that I can
express myself Jewishly, whereas
they can't. I felt a sense of guilt,
because I was free to leave,
whereas they couldn't."
BBYO and Hillel are benefic-
iary agencies of the Federation,
funded by the annual
Federation/UJA campaign.

NAMES OF TWO JCC
STREETS BID AND BOUGHT
AT AUCTION
Newly installed JCC vice presi-
dent Dr. Peter Sarbone, has had a
Center street named for his
family. Called the Sarbone Circle,
the sign can be seen as you drive
onto the campus and turn left.
Sarbone explains that he was
the highest bidder for this first-
time-offered item on the
auctioneer's block during the JCC
"Up, up and Away Auction, May
7th.
"It caused quite a stir," says
Sarbone. "The bidding was lively
and it sure looked like many
would-be buyers were interested
in having their names appear on a
JCC street sign."
A prominent Ft. Lauderdale
dermatologist, Dr. Sarbone was
one of the four chairpeople
involved in producing such a
successful event for the Center.
He says that the sign will be up for
a year. "When Auction '89
happens next Spring, we'll offer
the honor again to the highest
bidder," he says.
There is another street named
for a good friend of the Center,
Dr. Jeffry Winkelman, a well-
known dentist in the area.
Because he was the second
highest bidder, another street has
been named the Dr. Jeffry
Winkelman Way. This one goes
north and then east around the
Posnack Hebrew Day School on
the JCC campus.
Other chairpeople, Ellen
Fischer, Dr. Sheldon Ross and
Renee Spector, as well as Adult/
Cultural Arts Director Susana
Flaum, were very elated with the
general interest shown in the
auction considered a highlight
on the '88 JCC Special Events
calendar. They are happy to
report that three times the
amount expected was raised and
that the Center's Scholarship
Funds will be enjoying many more
opportunities to send many more
deserving children to camp and
many more adults to congenial,
informative and social programs
offered by JCC.
The evening also featured an
elegant dinner and a very much
enjoyed social evening for its 200
guests. The four chairs say that
the hundreds of items of every
variety donated for bidding
showed the tremendous support
of JCC members and friends. "We
hope to have a repeat next year,"
they all say in unison.
The JCC is a major beneficiary
agency of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale,
receiving funds from the annual
United Jewish Appeal campaign.
Dr. Peter Sarbone and sons Joshua, 7, and Andrew, S, came to
admire their newly designated Family Circle.

in
Frank Foundation
Amsterdam.
The recipients, who have put
them up for sale, are Juanita
and Betty Ann Wagner of
Danville. Like the Frank
sisters, they attended a
Montessori school. The corre-
spondence was initiated by an
American teacher who visited
Europe the summer before
World War II.
The fact that the Frank
letters were written in English
has raised questions here. It
was pointed out that until the
war, English was not taught in
Dutch elementary schools.
Dutch pupils corresponding
in that language would have to
have their letters translated by
a person literate in English

This could hardly have been
done without mistakes, which
are missing from the Frank
letters, sources here pointed
out.
According to Lowry, the
Frank sisters' letters were
translated by their father from
Dutch and copied by them in
English. They are the only
known samples of Anne
Frank's handwriting in
English, he said.
Anne was 11 at the time and
Margot 14. Their letters, dated
April 27 and 29, 1940, were
lighthearted, without premoni-
tion of the tragedy about to
befall Holland and the Frank
family.
