Education of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Ft.
Lauderdale serves them all!
CAJE is the central
address of Jewish Educa-
tion in North Broward in its
role as the educational arm
of the Jewish community
and in its functions as
consulting, coordinating,
operating and servicing all
types of programs from
Davie to Deerfield Beach
and from the Gait to the
Sawgrass.
Its lay leadership is
headed by Pearl Reinstein,
chairman of the Committee
on Education of the Jewish
Federation. The committee
is comprised of community
individuals who determine
the broad policy for the
Agency, who seek out the
unmet educational needs in
the community and recom-
mend those programs that
would fulfill these needs.
CAJE's professional staff
is headed by Dr. Abraham
J. Gittelson, Director of
Education; Sharon
Horowitz, Judaica High
School Principal and
Teacher Center Director;
and Helen Weisberg,
Administrator of the North
Broward Midrasha Adult
Education Institute.
In addition the North
Broward community is
served by nine other profes-
sionals of the overall CAJE
staff headed by Gene
Greenzweig, CAJE execu-
tive director. CAJE's work
is focused on a number of
major areas. The Judaica
High School serves over 300
students at three branches

thropy all his life, was the
president of the UJA
campaign in his hometown of
Geneva, New York, prior to
coming to South Florida. His
work on behalf of his
fellowman knows no bounds,
and has been recognized by his
peers, having been honored at
the UJA Pacesetters
Luncheon and was Palm-
Aire's Israel Bonds first
achievement recipient.
A co-founder and president
of the Palm-Aire Civic Associ-
ation the first five years, as
well as a member of the Execu-
tive Committee since 1974, he
is a past president of Condo 4.
As chairman of this year's
drive, he helped to organize
and implement new and inno-

accounting for an increase in
both campaign funds and new
givers.
Committed to every aspect
of things Jewish, the Atlanta,
GA native Irving Libowsky, is
indeed a "Man for all

involved in a lifetime of dedica-

brethren in need.
The past chairman of the
Palm-Aire Division, he was the
most responsible for the
present day achievement of
the community's philanthropic

vice president of the Federa-

of the Kosher Nutrition/
Gathering Place programs and
is a valued member of the
Eldercare comittee currently
finalizing the ground-breaking
of the HUD 202 123-unit
apartment complex for the
elderly in the community of

Recognized for his untiring
work and unstinting gener-
osity, he was one of the first

the coveted ADL Torch of

In The SpotlightAn Issue Facing American Jewry...
Constitutional Convention Risks Freedom
By SEYMOUR D.REICH
The American Jewish
community must be
alerted to an issue of great
United States
of America
moment taking place in
many state legislatures
across this country.
A measure has been
proposed calling on the US
congress to sanction a
constitutional convention
for the purpose of consid-
ering an amendment
requiring a balanced
federal budget. There is
great concern thai the
convening of a new
national constitutional
convention poses a poten-
tial threat to our plural-
istic democracy, and
indeed, to our American
way of life.
Regardless of opinions
as to the need and desira-
bility of mandating a
balanced budget in the US
Constitution, the Amer-
ican Jewish community
should be single-minded
that opening the Constitu-
tion to change, through
the extraordinary method
of a convention the first
since 1787 carries un-
acceptable risks, because
it invites tampering with
our basic freedoms. Many
constitutional experts fear
that even the Bill of Rights
the cornerstone of
American democracy
would not be secure.
Judging by the nature
and agenda of the groups
pressing for a new conven-
tion, many of these groups
are seeking more than a
balanced budget amend-
ment. Some of them have
made no secret that they
are looking for funda-
mental changes in the
document that has served
our nation so well for
nearly 200 years, including
revisions of Articles One
and Four of the Bill of
Rights.
Many legal scholars are
convinced that once a
convention begins, there
are no restraints on what
it can consider, even if the
reason for convening was
as specific as a balanced
budget amendment. In
theory, the delegates to a
convention could rewrite
the Constitution alto-
gether, just as the first
Convention, mandated to
rewrite the Articles of
Confederation, decided to
recommend a radically
different document, which
was then ratified by the
states. Even if a conven-
tion could be limited to one

NEW YORK, N.Y. Martin
F. Stein, immediate past
United Jewish Appeal national
chairman, has been elected
chairman of the UJA Board of
Trustees, succeeding Alex
Grass of Harrisburg, Pennsyl-
vania. Morton A. Kornreich,
who succeeds Stein as national
chairman, spoke highly of
Stein saying: "Marty's
warmth, caring and genuine
understanding of the mission
of the UJA make him the ideal
choice for chairman of the
board. His two years as
national chairman have been
an unqualified success and I
know he will be an outstanding
board chairman."
In addition to Stein's
appointment, ten new
members were elected last
month to serve on the United
Jewish Appeal Board of Trus-
tees for the 1988-89 term of
the Board.
The Board of Trustees,
which is the policy making
body of the UJA, is comprised
of trustees from the ranks of
its own national vice chairmen,
as well as through those of the
United Israel Appeal, Council
of Jewish Federations and the
American Jewish Joint Distri-
bution Committee. The newly
elected Board will serve until
May of 1989. Kornreich was
also elected to the Board of
trustees.
Among the other new trus-
tees are several UJA National
vice chairmen including:
Edgar R. Goldenberg of Phila-
delphia; Steven Grossman of
Boston who is also UJA
national chairman for Commu-
nications/Public Relations;
Jane Sherman of Detroit, who

"... set out from here to
a land of milk and honey"
(Exodus 33:3)
DEBORAH FULLER HAHN
GLASNOST?
The Russian term "Glasnost"
has been incorporated into our
language. We have been led to
believe that the word translates as
"openness." What does this
particular openness mean to Jews
of the Soviet Union? Openness
(and therefore tolerance) might
mean that more Jews could expect
to emigrate to a country of their
own choosing. In that part of the
world, reality is, of course, very
different from expectation.
The New York Times Interna-
tional section of Friday, Aug. 5,
reported a very troubling situa-
tion. Glasnost is allowing a new
"openness" to those who wish to
vent their pent-up feelings of anti-
Semitism. Encouraged by the
restyling of the Gorbachev admin-
istration, the deep seated afflic-
tion of anti-Semitism is once again
openly tormenting the Jewish
community. Moscow Jews have
reported "blatant and crude leaf-
lets around the city this spring
that called for "death to Jews"
and warnings that the celebration
of the millennium of Christianity
in this country would be marked
by violence and pogroms."
These leaflets, only one example
of many such incidents, were
handwritten and glued to walls.
The Times article called them
"startling in their simplicity and
venom." They proclaimed, r'How
long can we tolerate the dirty
Jews who have penetrated our
society? Russia is for
Russians.. .. and death to Yids."
"Anti-Semitism here is an old
illness," said Yuli Kasharovsky, a
Moscow Jew who has for 17 years
been denied permission to
emigrate. "But before, it was
fears we nurtured among
ourselves. What is new for us is
this talk, the fact that it is so
acceptable to speak about anti-
Semitism. We have to ask
ourselves, 'What does this
mean?' "
Russian prejudice against Jews
has been a fact of life since before
the formation of the Soviet Union.
Russian Jewish history was
written in the tears of the ghettos
and the blood of the pograms.
Growing in strength during the
reign of Josef Stalin, anti-
Semitism never actually subsided.
Inspite of official condemnation,
Soviet Jews agree that anti-
Jewish sentiments are encour-
aged by the government's
campaign against Zionism. Iden-
tity cards must be carried indi-
cating the "Jewish" classification
of each individual. For many
years, the Soviet Union has made
it difficult for Jews to gain admis-
sion to universities or to obtain
jobs and promotions. For those
talented enough to penetrate this
discrimination, there can be a high
level of achievement.
Today, educated Jews are
worried about a resurgence of
nationalist groups like "Pamyat"
who urge "a purer Russian
culture.' This particular group
holds weekly meetings in a Lenin-
grad park. Formed to promote
Russian historical treasures, they
exhibit "a strong undercurrent of
extreme nationalism and anti-
Semitism." Pamyat claims tens of
thousands of followers,
mostly low-ranking bureaucrats
and workers. Jews in Leningrad
have noted that the police have
allowed Pamyat public speakers
to proceed unimpeded.
Gennadi Resnikoff, who has
been refused permission to
emigrate for nine years, main-
tained, "The revolution, Stalin,
even Brezhnev has taught us that
if there is a new era here, and
things don't get better, especially
economically, somehow Jews get
blamed and Jews suffer. And so
we wait and we are frightened."
The Times stated, "Anti-
Semitism here [in the USSR] has
almost always been shrouded in
anonymity or euphemism. Under
Stalin, it was hidden in the guise
of anti-cosmopolitan and in the
Brezhnev years, as anti-
intellectual and anti-Zionist."
Mr. Resnikoff declared,
"Democracy and glasnost are a
delicate balance. We fear very
strongly it will tip in the wrong
direction and we, once again, wifi
be its victim. So far, there has
been no convincing evidence
otherwise."
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Reagan has signed
into law a bill that imposes
federal criminal penalties for
damage to religious property.
The bill, originally proposed
by Rep. Dan Glickman (D.-
Kan.), imposes fines up to
$250,000 and/or 10 years'
imprisonment for anyone
convicted of causing more than
$10,000 in damage to a reli-
gious institution or cemetery,
or causing serious bodily
injury to anyone trying to
exercise his or her religious
beliefs.
"We've sent a clear message
to organizations of hate that
racist and racial religious
violence will not be tolerated,"
Glickman said after both
houses of Congress approved
the bill.
Still pending in the Senate
Judiciary Committee is
another "hate crimes" bill,
which would require the
Justice Department to gather
statistics and report annually
on crimes against persons or
property because of race, reli-
gion, ethnic origin or sexual

orientation.
That bill, sponsored by Rep.
John Conyers (D-Mich.), was
adopted by the House in May
by a 383-29 vote.

North Broward Jewish Education '89...
More Than 5000 Student Enrollment
Enrollment of over 3,300
students, a variety of new
programs and sue new educators
will mark the new school year for
the synagogue and day schools of
North Broward for 1988-89/5749,
Dr. A.J. Gittelson, director of
education for the CAJE of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, announced.
"Jewish Education in North
Broward has been marked by a
steady increase in school popula-
tion with an additional 1,300 chil-
dren registered in the early child-
hood programs. Gittelson noted,
"The growth has been completed
by more intense programming on
every level, from the nursery
school through the Judaica High
School."
Newcomers to the community
are Mordecai Kaspi-Silverman,
who will be the Educational
Director at Temple Beth Torah;
Arleen Magier, at Temple Beth
Am; Barbara Fellner, Sha'aray
Zedek; Naomi Litzenblatt, Temple
Shalom; Rabbi Edward Moline,
Temple Emanuel; and Cantor
Ronald Graner, Temple Bet
Tikvah.
At Temple Bat Yam, where
Rabbi Lewis Littman directs the
school, the emphasis will be on the
holiday cycle of the year, with a
special family chavurah being
formed for post Bar/Bat Mitzvah
students.
The first month of school at
Temple Beth Am, directed by
Arleen Majier will seek to provide
creative approaches combining
past memories of the students
with new experiences. Tzedakah
projects will be a year-long high-
light of the curriculum.
Temple Beth Israel, under the
leadership of Stanley Cohen,
senior educator of the community,
will focus on value concepts and
skill development in its emphasis
on Bible, Prayer and the mitzvot
of Jewish life. A specially devel-
oped graded, spiral curriculum is
designed to continually deepen
the knowledge of the students in
each subject area.
At Temple Beth Orr, Moshe
Ezry, educational director, who
has just been designated as a RJE
Reform Jewish Educator for
distinguished service in Jewish
education, is especially proud of
the class for students with
learning disabilities, the only one
in the community, and the
outstanding student choir under
the direction of Arlene Solomon,
in addition to the ongoing
program of the school.
At Temple Bet Tikvah, Cantor
Educator Ronald Graner will
focus on the family as the basic
educational structure, with ample
opportunities during each of the
holidays for intergenerational
celebrations.
Temple Beth Torah-Tamarac
Jewish Center, directed by Kaspi
Silverman, will focus on special
holiday programs and assemblies
that will include both parents and
children and strengthen home
observance to complement the
teachings of the school. The
detailed school calendar reflects
parent involvement throughout
the year both in relation to the
holidays and the Sabbath.
Rabbi Edward Moline, at
Temple Emanuel, will be directly
involved in the Bar/Bat prepara-
tion of the students, and will also
stress family services and celebra-
tions beginning with the High
Holidays. The school will have an
integrated Hebrew and Judaic
studies program.
At Temple Kol Ami, Tirza Arad
will highlight the first month of
school with the joyous festival of
Sukkot, with student decorations,
consecration of the kindergarten
and first grade students and the
importance of Tzedakah with the
first meeting of the Keren Ami
Council. Through the year the
various grades will participate in
Shabbat services with special
intergenerational programs to
link grandparents and grandchild-
ren, as one of the highlights.
Ramat Shalom, led by Linda
Harris, will focus on holiday cele-
brations, but will also include
Judaic programming through the
use of computers. Guest speakers
will be an important part of the
special school assemblies.
Naomi Litzenblatt, educational
director at Temple Shalom, will
highight individual attention to
each student in the intimate
setting of the school. The begin-
ning of a Kadima youth group will
complement the holiday programs
and ongoing curriculum of the
school.
At Temple Sha'aray Zedek,
Barbara Fellner, who returns to
the community after a brief
absence, will have a Family
Sukkah dinner as a highlight of
the first month of the school. Each
month will see a major school
program including Jewish Book
month observances, a holiday
bazaar and a Family Chanukah
program during the fall semester.
The Peretz Jewish Children's
School, directed by Irving Tabach-
nikov, will continue to emphasize
"mame loshen" and the cultural
world of Yiddishkeit for its
students.
Deserving of special note are
the programs of the David
Posnack Hebrew Day School, the
community Judaica High School
and the Early Childhood
Programs in the synagogues, day
schools and JCC of the community
... but more of this in a coming
issue.
Jewish education is alive and
well in North Broward! May
students, teachers, directors and
parents be inscribed for a year of
blessing, peace and fruitful
achievement!

David to Goliath? Isn't the occupation of the West Bank
corrupting the soul of the Israelis?"
It's a shame, first, that the dream cherished by idealist of Arabs
and Jews living together in harmony in the same land has been
shattered. The Intifada the violent uprising of Palestinian
Arabs has silenced those who used to dare speak of brother-
hood.
It's a shame that the Israeli Government foolishly released a
thousand of the most hardened apostiles of hatred a few years ago
in a swap for several captured airmen, appeasement that Israel is
paying for today.
It's a shame, too, that so many longtime supporters of Israel in
the U.S. have been reduced to handwringing anguish at the sight
of a democratic nation defending itself against a new form of
guerilla warfare in which the attacker assumes the role of victim.
And it's a shame that overseas viewers are persuaded to think
Israel is in a state of siege, to be shunned by fairweather tourist
and timorous immigrants, when in fact the streets of Jerusalem
and Tel Aviv are far safer than New York and Washington.
Most of all, it's a shame that the underlying motive of the
uprising is so totally misconceived outside Israel's borders. The
purpose of Arab dictators and monarchs who are financing and
delighting in the violence is not self-discrimination, a Western
notion alien to the Arab world. It is to win the 40-year war against
the Jews. The goal remains to drive the Israelis out once and for
all.
Such acceptance of what Arab leaders say in public strikes
accommodationists as antenna-insensitive. Americans who set
great store in winks and nods explain that the Arab leaders have
to adopt an extreme position now but will settle for the West
Bank and Gaza and won't even demand the division of Jerusalem.
Don't worry (say the outsiders whose lives and homes are not at
stake, as well as a diminishing number of doves) about the Arab
rhetoric, the Arab stabbing of Palestinian mayors who lean
toward Jordan rather than the PLO. Ignore all the jihad
jawboning; when offered recognition and land, they'll take what
they are given and will live in peace alongside the Jews.
But, let us cut the condescension and consider for a moment the
possibility that these people are serious. The Palestinians who
have been living for a generation under Israeli adminstration are
among the best-educated, most highly motivated Arabs in in the
world. They are understandably embittered because they have
been kept in camps as "refugees."
And who has denied them dignity, decent housing, citizenship?
While Israel took in 600,000 Jews ejected from Arab lands, the
Arab world made it clear it wanted no part of the Palestinians.
Instead, they kept them in the status of permanent refugees
because the demeaning camps are incubators of hatred of Israel.
That is why Arab rulers, through the UN, have resisted any
improvement in the housing of Palestinians, as offered by the
Israelis. Arab leaders not only want their frustrated brothers to
stay right where they are far from Arab capitals, where they
might be troublemakers in and near Israel, fiercely unhappy.
The pushed-around Palestinians are destined to have their state
one day. But their state will not be Israel; instead, it will be the
land on the East Bank of the Jordan, populated now mainly by
Palestinians but ruled by King Hussein and his minority of
Hashemites.
Self-determination will come when the little King and Yasir
Arafat or his successor come to grips or come to agreement.
Economic and culture dictate, that there can be only one
Palestine state, not two. Populated areas of the West Bank and
Gaza can not exist as independent pockets of poverty, but are
destined to unite with the East Bank to create a viable nation run
by the majority and not by the minority monarch who won the
bloody first round.
The battle we see on television today is between Palestinian
demonstrators and Israel soldiers, but the unseen, generation-
long battle is between the PLO and King Hussein for control of
the Palestinian Arab nation.
When the winner emerges with the franchise for direct dealing
one that does not threaten Israel's survival the hardest
Israeli hard-liner will eagerly offer a formula for peace. In the
meantime, Israel's friends are well advised to be patient and
stand fast.

Israel Government Emergency Committee
to Combat the Intifada Against JNFForests
Friday. August 26, 1988
Volume 17
13 ELUL 5748
Number 20
By YEHONATHAN TOMMER
JERUSALEM: The Israeli
Cabinet is giving top priority to
combating the widespread
burning of Jewish National Fund
forests, much of which is deliber-
ately caused by hostile Palestinian
elements, according to police and
military intelligence, who have
made several arrests.
Since April, over 35,000 acres of
Israel's forests and pasturelands
have been ravaged, at a cost of
over $35 million, including 23,013
acres of natural grazing land,
10,838 acres of natural forest and
2,0003 acres of planted forest.
Moshe Rivlin, JNF world
chairman, who recently delivered
a report to the Cabinet at Prime
Minister Shamir's request, stated,
"This is nothing less than a plague
of forest fires, out of all propor-
tion to anything we have hitherto
known."
Following the cabinet's recent
discussion on the forest crisis, a
special fire-fighting committee
has been created to coordinate
with the police, Israel Defence
Forces, JNF and other agencies
on ways of preventing the recent
wave of politically-inspired arson.
Labelling the forest fires an inti-
fada (Arabic for uprising) against
Israel's woodlands and pastures,
Police Minister Haim Bar Lev has
demanded legislation providing
for considerably stiffer penalties
to deter offenders and has
instructed his ministry to estab-
lish a special intelligence-
gathering unit. Education
Minister Yitzhak Navon has also
instructed his ministry to mobilize
high school seniors to help JNF
and other fire-fighting teams
extinguish outbreaks of fires.
Recent fires have broken out in
three areas in the Jerusalem
region, including the Adullam-
Eshtaol area, Tzora and Bar
Giora-Nes Harim. The American
Independence Park is endan-
gered, as are Canada Park, along
the main Jerusalem-Tel Aviv
highway and Ramot Park on the
capital s northern periphery. In
the Galilee, the fires have been
centered mainly in the areas of
Kibbutz Rosh HaNikra, around
the Banyias Springs and in the
Wadi'Ara region west of Zichron
Ya'acov.
"The Jewish National Fund has
mobilized all available manpower
and equipment to rapidly prevent
the expansion of existing fires,
deter the outbreak of future fires
and improve access roads," Mr.
Rivlin said. He said that apart
from the forests and pasturelands
destroyed by the flames, valuable
orchards, chicken coops and other
farming property has also been
destroyed. "JNF and the Govern-
ment are coordinating their
efforts to meet the threat of
further blazes," he said. "JNF is
faced with an emergency and the
Government must see to it that
top national priority is given to
combating this new and lethal
terrorist weapon."
Those who wish to help the
Jewish National Fund reforesta-
tion effort may call the agency's
toll-free emergency hotline, 1-800-
5U2-TREE. A special Emergency
Forest Fund certificate is avail-
able, through Visa or MasterCard,
for donations of $50.00 or more. A
personal check may also be made
out to the JNF Emergency Forest
Fund, U2 East 69th Street, New
York, NY, 10021.

An Issue Facing American Jewry...
Constitutional Convention Risks Freedom
general subject fiscal
matters practically any
manner of amendment
could be introduced
because ultimately every-
thing is relatable and
reducible to budget.
A tougher procedures
bill would be no guarantee
that a convention would
operate within certain
parameters. Despite the
attempt by the Contin-
ental Congress and the
States to bind the original
1787 convention, that
convention recognized and
operated under no limita-
tions. It did so because it
saw itself as a new
convention is likely to see
itself as the highest and
ultimate expression of
people's will.
It is true, of course, that
a convention can do
nothing more than recom-
mend change. Its recom-
mendation must go back to
the states for their
approval. But that rati-
fying process could easily
be dominated by those
states and individuals with
the least experience with
pluralism. They may
accept changes that
strengthen the majority
and its interests at the
expense of the minority. A
healthy democracy is one
that keeps in balance
majority and minority
interest and rights. That is
the American way.
The safer and more
traditional way of
amending the Constitution
is for Congress to consider
constitutional amend-
ments. This is the way the
Constitution has been
amended all 26 times. To
call a constitutional
convention for the ostens-
ible purpose of considering
one proposed amendment
is to abuse a process which
the framers of our Consti-
tution clearly intended as
a last resort.
The call for a national
constitutional convention
must be respected. Such a
convention would put our
freedoms at risk, when a
far more conservative
process initiating an
amendment in Congress
is available and time-
tested. If the country
wants a balanced budget
amendment to the Consti-
tution, let it be done by
that traditional method.
Only in this way can we
protect our American
Constitution. Only in this
way can we be assured
that no extreme and
willful segment of our
body politic will be in a
position to undermine our
fundamental liberties as a
free and tolerant people.
It is significant to note
that states which previ-
ously endorsed the Consti-
tutional Convention
concept are now reconsid-
ering their actions. The
legislatures of Florida and
Alabama have already
formally withdrawn their
support.
We the people do not
want a new constitutional
convention. The political
opportunists, however, do.
I would hope that the
people's will would
prevail.

national president ofB'nai

JEWISH FAMILY SERVICES
BUILDS "CARE CLOSET"
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County is asking the
community for donations of
walkers, canes, crutches and
wheelchairs to help develop a
"Care Closet" a place where
the disabled and frail elderly can
borrow these critical items.
"We've learned through our
years of experience with the
newly disabled whether tempo-
rary or long-term and the
elderly that buying or renting this
equipment can be a real burden on
a fixed income," explains Eleanor
Bernstein, director, Senior
Services, Jewish Family Service.
"At the same time, we often
have people call us who'd like to
pass on a walker or wheelchair to
someone in need. Our Care Closet
will help us make the perfect
match between our clients and the
community," Bernstein
points out.
Jewish Family Service offers a
number of services for the disa-
bled and the frail elderly
throughout Broward County,
including:
Counseling
Respite Care
CHAI (an overall evaluation
and ongoing monitoring)
Information and Referral,
and
Medicare Information
Service.
"Our goal is to help seniors and
their families with a wide range of
services to maintain their inde-
pendence, dignity and self
respect," says Bernstein.
Anyone who has items for the
Jewish Family Service Care
Closet should contact the agency
in Fort Lauderdale at 749-7777.
Because of storage space limita-
tions, hospital beds cannot be
accepted.
Jewish Family Service is a bene-
ficiary agency of the United Way
of Broward County, the Jewish
Federation of South Broward and

Volunteers for Israel to
Participate in 40th Anniversary
Ceremonies in October
This fall, show your commit-
ment to Israel during the current
crises by going on the Volunteers
for Israel program for three
weeks in October.
Volunteers For Israel work on
military bases, hospitals, and
kibbutzim to help fill in for the
Israeli reservist. As of January 1,
1988, over 7,600 persons from the
Benjamin Dinkes
U.S. have already served in the
program. Anyone in good general
health between the ages of 17 and
70 can go on the program.
In addition to the daily work
routine, volunteers are taken on
weekly tours throughout the
country, partake in lectures by
Israel's leading professors, and
this fall will participate in the final
40th anniversary celebration cere-
monies at Masada which will
include a concert by the Israel
Philharmonic Orchestra.
According to Benjamin Dinkes,
regional coordinator for Volun-
teers For Israel, the October 11
trip is already filling up quickly.
The total subsidized cost of the
trip is $699 which includes round
trip airfare, departure taxes,
registration fees, admission to the
gala concert at Masada, room and
board, tours, and Shabbat home
hospitality.
If you're interested in finding
out more about the trip, call the
office at the JCC at 792-6700 or

Captain Kirk and the crew went
searching for Dr. Spock in a
recent Star Trek reprise. Porgy
went searching for Bess. Sidney
Greenstreet and a slippery Peter
Lorre went on one more troubled
expedition to find the Maltese
Falcon. Meanwhile, Jewish orga-
nizers and institutions continue to
seek the very elusive "unaffiliated
Jew."
The search for the unaffiliated
Jew is a misguided effort. The
biggest problem we face is not in
rates of affiliation, either with
synagogues or temple or other
Jewish organizations. It is levels
of involvement that should
concern us most.
Study after study in the 1980s,
whether in St. Louis, San Fran-
cisco, Baltimore, New Orleans, or
other cities, show that most Jews
are affiliated. Some may belong to
a synagogue or temple. Others
belong to one Jewish organization
or another. Most Jews make some
nominal gift to some Jewish
philanthropy. Most Jewish chil-
dren receive some Jewish educa-
tion. The majority attend High
Holiday services, even if they do
not belong to a synagogue or
temple. When all of these are
added together, the total encom-
passes the great majority of Jews.
Those who do none of these things
are likely to be over the age of 65,
and used to belong to some organ-
ization or institution, or under the
age of 30, and plan to join in the
future. Proportionately, few Jews
are totally disconnected, totally
unaffiliated. Rates of true nonaf-
filiation are found to be highest
among intermarried Jews.
The real problem can be found
in the level of commitment,
involvement, and activity for
connected Jews who are inactive
within the organizational and
institutional structure. The reason
Jewish organizations search so
hard for unaffiliated Jews is that
because most affiliated Jews are
invisible within the Jewish
communal structure. They are
members, but in name only.
While Jews give something to
Jewish causes, the vast majority
give only a few dollars. Most Jews
who belong to Jewish organiza-
tions volunteer no time for them.
Jews go to a synagogue or temple,
but only once or twice a year, or
drop off their children at Hebrew
school.
The search for the unaffiliated is
Bank Hapoalim is giving visitors to Israel's 40th Anniversary
Exhibition of Accomplishments in Tel Aviv the opportunity "to
leave their mark"for years to come. Visitors are being invited to
sign a giant scroll which has been set up on the outer wall of Bank

President of the State of Israel, and his wife Aura.
a cop-out. It allows Jewish organi-
zations to focus outward instead
of looking critically inward. Jews
are already connected in some
way, or will be, or used to be.
Certainly we should make every
attempt to reach out to those who
are totally outside the organiza-
tional and institutional structure.
But that search should not serve
as a smoke screen to the obvious
problems of involving those who
will be marginally drawn to
Jewish communal life at some
point. Marriages, birth of chil-
dren, children becoming school
age, illness and death are all life
cycle events that bring Jews into
contact with Jewish organizations
and institutions. What do we do to
expand the contact?
The most pressing and vital
challenge we have is increasing
levels of involvement and partici-
pation. That requires creating
new volunteer jobs, undertaking
new and broader agendas in our
institutions and organizations,
opening up leadership circles,
providing different and more
human services. It means more
creative religious services and
educational programs. It means
social events that are vibrant and
exciting. It means diversity in
what we do and the ways we do it.

Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies
Creating A Legacy
For the 21st Century
Joel Reimtein,Chairman
How To Leave A
legacy For Tomorrow
Here are several ways you can
invest in our community and
receive personal benefits.
Philanthropic Fond: 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
AJCommittee Poll
Sympathy
for Israel
Has Dropped
NEW YORK (JTA) American
public sympathy has declined for
Israel and risen for the Arab
nations since the beginning of the
Palestinian uprising, according to
a Roper poll conducted in April on
behalf of the American Jewish
Committee.
However, while sympathy for
Israel declined by 11 percentage
points since February 1987
from 48 percent to 37 percent
sympathy with the Arab nations
increased by only three percen-
tage points, from 8 percent polled
in February 1987 to 11 percent in
April 1988.
In addition, a March poll taken
by the Roper Organization that
asked an identical question about
sympathies in the Middle East
conflict indicates that sympathy
with Israel may be on the
upswing. The March poll showed
sympathy for Israel as low as 30
percent and sympathy with the
Arab at 12 percent.
The latest poll is the fifth in an
annual series conducted by Roper
and AJCommittee that probes
American public attitudes toward
Israel and American Jews.
Four identical questions have
been included since the first poll
was conducted in 1984, allowing
for what Dr. David Singer,
director of AJCommittee's Infor-
mation and Research Services
Department, called "a clear and
consistent trend-line established
over time." The previous poll was
taken in February 1987.
On the matter of whether the
news media have shown bias
against Israel in their coverage of
the uprising, 31 percent of those
polled said the media had shown
bias and 36 percent said they had
not.
The current poll's findings are
slightly less upbeat than similar
polls conducted recently by both
the Anti-Defamation of
B'nai B'rith and the American
Jewish Congress.
Singer said that optimists can
conclude from the poll that a
decline in support for Israel is
"not as bad as one might have
imagined."
However, Singer added,
"anyone who wants to claim that
Israel's image has not changed in
any way, those people are simply
wrong. '
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 Terau
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.

BBYO HOLDS ANNUAL
SPRING CONVENTION
The Gold Coast Council of the
B'nai B'rith Youth Organization
recently held its Annual Spring
Convention at the Palm Hotel in
West Palm Beach. Coordinated by
the Council's vice presidents,
Jessica Armstrong and Lew
Minsky, the Convention attracted
150 Jewish teenagers from
throughout North Dade, Broward
and Palm Beach counties.
The theme of the Convention
was "Temptations of the 80's,
Sex, Drugs and Rock'N'Roll!"
which was the focus of the many
programs speakers and services.
The aim of these programs was to
educate the youth about various
subjects related to this theme and
to encourage them to think about
how each affects their lives.
Additional highlights of the
weekend included the annual End-
of-the-Year States by the
outgoing Council President,

JNF Peace Park
Along Border
With Egypt
By YEHONATHAN TOMMER
NIZZANA, Western Negev: A
bold Jewish National Fund peace
initiative was launched at the
western fringe of the Negev
Desert recently, when 500 enthu-
siastic individuals gathered at
Nizzana, on the border with
Egypt, to plant a 25-acre plot of
tree saplings.
The trees were planted to mark
the ninth anniversary of Israel's
peace treaty with Egypt, in the
presence of Dr. Ahmed el Messiri,
Egyptian Consul General to Eilat.
The woodland, which is to be drip
irrigated with brackish water, will
eventually extend along the
border to Ezuz-Be'erotayim.
At the ceremony which
& receded the actual planting,
[oshe Rivlin, JNF world
chairman, expressed the hope that
the forest park would eventually
be merged with a similar one to be
planted along the Egyptian side of
the border. He then revealed
that the project had originally
been conceived by Lova Eliav, the
popular educator and peace
activist who founded the nearby
Nizzana Agricultural Youth
Village. "Your vision, Lova, is
now being fulfilled," Mr. Rivlin
said.
"A green belt planted along the
border," Mr. Eliav replied,
"would practically strengthen
Israel's tender peace with
Egypt." Excavated archaeolo-
gical remains of ancient settle-
ments have testified to Nizzana's
historic role as a major crossing
point for travellers journeying
from Egypt to Syria. "There is
every reason to believe that when

A Visit to a
Jewish Legacy
Worms am Rhein is one of the
oldest historical places in Europe
where Jewish life has been
preserved. The Jewish cemetery
is the oldest in Europe, while the
synagogue, which was built in
1034 A.D., attests to almost 1000
years of recorded Jewish intellec-
tual life in the Middle Ages.
The original inscription, "Praise
be forever' is still legible on the
wall, along with many inscriptions
of famous scholars. The syna-
gogue was damaged over the
years through many desecrations,
but never completely destroyed.
The inner decoration is remark-
able. The chair where the great
Talmudist and philosopher Rashi

sat and taught his wisdom, stands
in its original beauty, with orna-
mental diamonds and precious
stones which were added in the
16th century. Many of the original
artifacts and architectural parts
were saved from the Nazis, and
with the help of the German
government, the front of the syna-
gogue was rebuilt, completely
restored and opened.
As a memorial to the Jewish
people murdered by the Nazis, a
?;old Eternal Light and a stone
rom Israel were built into the
wall as a connection between the
Jews from Exile and the Jews in
the Holy Land.

Marvin is 20. He dropped out
of high school when he was
sixteen and has gone from one
low-level job to another ever
since. His father called him a
low-life, he got into trouble
with the law.
Shoshana is a little girl who
has had to learn to "play
house" for real at the age of
nine. Her mother is divorced
and working, and there are
four other brothers and sisters
in the family. It all became too
much for Shoshana.
Ronnie is 24 and just
learning to walk again.
During Operation peace for-
Galilee, Ronnie, commander of

HIAS to Find Funds
for Soviet Visas
A diverse group of voluntary
agencies concerned with refugees
are urging the U.S. government
to issue visas to 3,000 Soviets who
have received permission to
emigrate but have been stranded
by a suspension of U.S. visas in
Moscow until October 1.
The Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society (HIAS) has joined this
appeal, which was made in a letter
to Secretary of State George
Shultz and was signed by 13 agen-
cies belonging to the American
Council for Voluntary Interna-
tional Action. HIAS and the other
12 agencies comprise the
Council's Committee on Migration
and Refugee Affairs.
The letter commends the State
Department for issuing visas to
400 Soviets who gave up apart-
ments and jobs after having been
promised entry to the U.S., but it
sees the decision to suspend visas
as sending an unwelcome message
to the refugees that our govern-
ment is willing to trade the
prospect of their freedom for
budgetary concerns.

Jews with problems. Prob-
lems that require solutions.
Solutions that require money.
Lots of money. In the 1988-
'89 allocations, the Federation
board of directors voted on a
record $7.2 million budget to
provide the necessary funding
for the more than 50 major
agencies and beneficiaries for
life-saving, life-giving
programs. Money not only to
maintain the vital services
already being provided, but
also to allow for expansion of
services to people in need.
Of that funding, more than
29 percent is for programs in
the local community, and is
provided by the
Federation/UJA campaign.
A record 52.3 percent goes
to the United Jewish Appeal,
the umbrella organization
through which campaign
funds, social welfare, health
and education programs in
more than 34 countries over-
seas, including Israel. This, in
addition, to funds allocated for
the Project Renewal neighbor-
hood of Kfar Saba.
To pay for all of that, says
'89 general campaign
chairman Barbara K. Wiener,
"The upcoming drive, which
begins in September, must
raise more than the budgeted
$7.2 million. That is absolutely
essential. To raise this money
requires the participating of
every member of our Greater
Fort Lauderdale area."
Members of the Jewish
community who are able to
help must work together to
provide for those who desper-
ately need assistance.
Members like Marvin,
Shoshana and Ronnie.
Marvin, Shoshana and
Ronnie have all gotten assis-
tance from our "Jewish
family" of agencies. Marvin
received intensive counseling
from the Jewish Family
Service. Now he relates to his
family, completed his high
school equivalency and is an
auto mechanic trainee.
Shoshana received six
months of counseling that
brought her out of her depres-
sion and is enrolled in a day-
care program.

Marvin, Shoshana and
Ronnie are just three of the
thousands helped by Federa-
tion/UJA programs. But there
are thousands more who reach
out to us and the work goes on.
Wiener indicated that, "It
takes the Federation and you
to make this work. We must
carry on the Jewish tradition
of Tzedakah to help
strengthen our community
and to contribute to the
progress and well-being of our
Jewish people. Through your

LE BROWSE THRIFT SHOP
NAMES NEW MANAGER
Jan Davidsson, new manager of
JCC's LeBrowse, knows it well
. Thrift Shops have two main
categories of customers: the trea-
sure hunter and the customer who
needs a break to rise above the
poverty level. But lately it has
been recognized that a third cate-
gory is emerging in greater
numbers. Consisting of customers
in the average, or even above
average, income brackets, these
wise shoppers look for the best
value for their dollars. And
certainly at Le Browse they find
"almost new", attractive
merchandise with which they can
outfit their families and decorate
their homes. Davidsson's good, in
fact he's great, for all three
customer categories.
With the show now for four
months, Davidsson has rear-
ranged the stock, organized the
volunteers and trained the staff to
his way of operating. Le Browse,
located in the Shoppes of Oriole
Plaza on State Rd. 7, between
Commercial and Oakland Park,
has its wares set up just like a
department store, with special
areas for furniture,
jewelry, men's, women's and chil-

dren's clothing, appliances, acces-
sories and books. The shop looks
good.
THE KINDS OF CUSTOMERS
"We've been seeing a pretty
even proportion of the antique
buff with something special in
mind the buyer in pretty good
financial shape who is value
oriented and the shopper who

needs clothes and/or furniture but
who has to watch every penny,"
says Davidsson. "And I'm sorry to
say we're seeing more and more
of the ones who are finding it
tough to make ends meet."
Davidsson tells the story of a
young woman who had to go on a
{ob interview and felt she didn't
lave the right thing to wear. He
helped her look through the racks
and find an appropriate outfit for
well under ten dollars. He was
elated when she returned two
days later to tell him she got the
job.
THE TREASURE SEEKERS
On the other hand, Davidsson is
pleased to say that LeBrowse is
good for all kinds of shoppers.
Certainly familiar with thrift shop
aficionados, Davidsson knows he
can put away a stunning German
silver serving piece that just came
in that Mrs. X would surely go
for. "But that's not fair," he says.
"Every customer has the right to
see a display of everything in our
collections.'
FURNITURE NEEDED -
WANTED1
Right now the shop is well
worth a visit for certain things
like dining accessories, china,
clothes, books. But it's pretty low
on furniture. "That's where we
benefit most, from furniture
sales," Davidsson comments.
"We want the word to go out that
we're in need. We have plenty of
openings on the floor for sofas,
chairs, beds, desk lamps, rugs and
LeBrowse drivers would be happy
to schedule a pick up. Tax deduc-
tion slips are available, too," he
adds.
A MANAGER WITH GOOD
EXPERIENCE
As has been indicated,
Davidsson is well qualified for his
job. Before joining the JCC staff
as Le Browse store manager, he
was with Goodwill Industries in
Miami in a managerial capacity
for their seven stores. He came to
this area to retire, but the retail
game tempted him once more.
A native of Denmark,
Davidsson came to the "States"
as a young man, bringing with him
his degree in Men's and Women's
clothing design, earned at the
Royal Danish Institute of Tech-
nology. He spent 17 years in
Rochester, N.Y. where he worked
five years with Fashion Park/
Steinblock and twelve years with
the Hickey-Freeman men's
clothing operations as an asso-
ciate in design and sales. Moving
south, he was a general merchan-
imiiiiiimii
dise manager for a large men's
and women's retail establishment
in Dallas. After 14 years, he came
to Florida to retire!
Davidsson says he loves his new
affiliation with the JCC and that
he has great admiration for his
industrious, dedicated corps of
volunteers. "We couldn't operate
without them," he says. "And we
would gladly welcome newcomers
to our wonderful list of sorters,
markers and sales clerks." He
also complimented his small
professional staff of drivers,
clerks and cashiers.
And likewise, all of the above,
plus a multitude of customers, feel
the same way about him!

The Best is Yet to Be: Renewing American Judaism
Wayne D. Dosick (Rabbi),
Chestnut Ridge NY, The Town
House Press, 1988, $19.95 cloth-
bound)
Jewish life in American stands,
at this very moment, between a
dazzling past and a very unsure
future. In fact, the creative
survival of the American Jewish
community is stake.
Some recent books have tried to
paint a golden image, but there
seems to be a heavy tarnish on the
gilt! This, according to San Diego
Rabbi Wayne D. Dosick in his new
book: THE BEST IS YET TO BE:
RENEWING AMERICAN
JUDAISM. Rabbi Dosick does not
agree that all is well. Rather, he
gives a critical analysis of what is
wrong with Jewish ufe in America
today, pointing to key areas
where the Jewish community is
short-changing and short-
circuiting itself.
He poses painful questions: Why
are the synagogues empty? Why
are Jews turned off and not
participating? Why is the inter-
marriage rate so high and the
birth rate so low? Why are Jews
not giving to Jewish causes? Why
has the rabbi's role been changed,
and his authority diminished?
Why are Federations fractured
and fragmented by politics? Why
are the central institutions of
Jewish life the synagogue and
the community organizations
not meeting the specific needs of
those they are supposed to serve?
Fortunately, the book has a sub-
Three-dimensional pop-up Rosh Hashanah cards were the vogue in Germany at the turn of
the 20th century. Pictured above, Tamar Rabinowitz and Mordechai heifer, students at
Yeshiva University in New York, admire several of the pop-up cards, some of which were
made in Breslau in 1910. The cards are part of a permanent collection at the Yeshiva
University Museum.

title: Renewing American
Judaism, and after presenting his
litany of problems, Rabbi Dosick
spells out imaginative solutions
that offer new hope for Jewish
survival. THE BEST IS YET TO
BE proposed far-reaching plans,
some quite provocative and some
controversial, for making Jewish
life satisfying and personally
fulfilling once again. By blending
the best of Jewsih tradition, with
the best of contemporary Amer-
ican culture. Rabbi Dosick gives a
sound prescription for healing the
ailments, both acute and chronic.
His proposals include
many how-to s: making worship
challenging and emotional fulfil-
ling; using modern technologies
and methodologies in the class-
room for both children and adults;
meeting the newly-emerging
needs of special people such as
teens, singles, gays, the elderly
and the handicapped; new on-
going training for rabbis and lay
leaders; more humane agree-
ments between congregations and
their rabbis; the restoration of the
synagogue-center to meet the
needs of the whole human being;
new methods of raising and
spending money; new concepts for
long-range Jewish planning.
One of his most innovative
suggestions is the Proprietary
Synagogue, a revolutionary
concept for establishing and
administering a synagogue with
sound business practices, coupled
with Jewish warmth and compas-
sion.
Rabbi Wayne D. Dosick is the
founder and spiritual leader of
Congregation Beth Am, a Conser-
vative synagogue in Solana
Beach, a northern suburb of San
Diego. He is a graduate of the
University of Cincinnati and was
ordained by the Hebrew Union
College in 1973. A member of both
the Rabbinical Assembly and the
Central Conference of American
Rabbis, he is a past president of
the San Diego Rabbinical Associa-
THE "BEST IS
YET TOBE
tion. He has served pulpits in
Wilmington, Delaware and La
Jolla, California, and is the
creator of The Video Synagogue,
which brings religious services,
via video-tape, to Jewish patients
who are confined to hospitals and
other health care facilities. Rabbi
Dosick serves on the faculty of the
University of San Diego, and is a
regular columnist and Contri-
buting Editor to the San Diego
Jewish Times.
THE BEST IS YET TO BE:
RENEWING AMERICAN
JUDAISM is a book that pulls no
punches as to where the American
Jewish community is, and what it
must do in order to survive into
the 21st century. It is incisive in
placing blame, yet decisive as to
how positive changes can be
accomplished. It is both an invita-
tion and a guide to the Jewish
future.
THE BEST IS YET TO BE:
RENEWING AMERICAN
JUDAISM is available in local
Jewish book stores, or directly
from the publisher. It is must
reading for anyone who cares
about the future of Jewish exist-
ence in America.

Which Campuses Offer
the Best Jewish Life?
With thousands of colleges and
universities in North America to
select from, how does a Jewish
student choose a school where
there are many other Jewish
students, kosher meals and
vibrant Jewish life?
Probably the easiest and most
informative way is through the
latest edition of Jewish Life on
Campus, an annual directory
published by the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundations.
The directory lists Jewish
enrollment, Jewish courses,
kosher dining, Hillel units, and
other related information in 402
colleges in the United States, plus
23 in Canada and 16 abroad, all of
which have a Jewish student popu-
lation.
Edwin Shapiro of New York,
chairman of the B'nai B'rith Hillel
Commission, calls the directory
"very valuable to Jewish families
with children in high school. It is
extremely helpful in selecting the
school that will provide whatever
the students and his family want
in regard to Jewish life."
Besides listing Jewish related-
information, the directory, edited
by Dr. Ruth Fredman Cernea,
director of Hillel's Publications
and Extension Service, has an
open letter to Jewish students and
their parents. Dr. Cernea says
that the letter, together with the
directory, can answer the most
frequently asked questions.
Dr. Cernea explains that while
the figures listed for total enroll-
ment are accurate, the figures of
Jewish enrollment are estimates
because on many campuses reli-
gious preference cards are no
longer distributed and, if they are,
many Jewish students refrain
from listing their religion.
Two schools in the United
States have the highest number of
Jewish students. They are
Brooklyn College and New York
University, with 15,000 each.
Brooklyn College also has the
second-highest percentage of
Jewish students: 60 percent. New
York University has 37 percent.
As in the past, most of the
American schools with high
percentage of Jewish students are
in the East. Excluding the Jewish
Yeshiva/Stern College, the top
schools percentagewise are Bran-
deis University, with 64 percent;
Brooklyn College, 60 percent; and
Queens College, SUNY-
Binghamton, and Clark Univer-
sity, 50 percent.
Following them are Columbia
University, 39 percent: New York
University, 37 percent; Tufts
University, University of Pennsy-
lania, and SUNY-Oneonta, 35
percent; George Washington
University, 33 percent; and Yale
University, Tulane/Newcomb
University, Washington Univer-
sity-St. Louis, SUNY-Albany, and
SUNY-Stony Brook, 30 percent.
In the Far West, California
State-Northridge has both the
highest percentage (28) and the
most Jewish students (8,000). It is
followed by the University of Cali-
fornia-Los Angeles (18 percent
and 6,000 students), and Univer-
sity of California-Berkley (16
percent and 5,000 students).
Heading the South are Tulane/
Newcomb (30 percent and 3,000
students), Emory University (22
percent and 1,800 students),
Broward Community College (18
percent and 3,000 students), Duke
University (17 percent and 1,500
students), and the University of
Miami (16 percent and 2,300
students).
Of the Ivy League Schools,
following Columbia, Penn and
Yale are Harvard University (25
percent and 1,600 students),
Cornell University (18 percent
and 3,200 students), Princeton
University (17 percent and 1,000
students), and Dartmouth College
(10 percent and 450 students).

official state visit to Israel to tour BGU and see how its scientists, in cooperation with Dutch
scientists and under a grant from the Netherlands government, are working on methods to
improve the lives of inhabitants of arid-zone countries of the Third World. Their research on
microcatchments for water-harvesting in the desert will be used in a million dollar project
financed by the Netherlands, in Marua, Northern Cameroon, beginning January, 1989.
Hillel Honors Attorney Team at Installation Dinner

she says.
The directory lists each school
alphabetically and by state (in
Canada, by province). Included in
the information about the schools
are the names, addressee and
phone numbers of the staff
members of each B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation and other
Jewish organizations.
Each year, B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundations of Greater Miami
honors an important leader of the
Miami Jewish community at the
annual installation dinner.
This year, Judith and Sydney
Traum, two attorneys, were hon-
ored for their leadership, dedica-
tion, and untiring efforts on
behalf of Hillel, and Jewish
communal life in South Florida.
The Hillel Community Board
officers were installed at the
dinner. This year's officers
include president Barry Yarchin,
vice president Meah Tell, vice
president Judith Traum, treasurer
Bert Brown, secretary David
Lavin, and immediate past presi-
dent William Saulson.
In other Hillel news, Saul
Kravec was the recipient of the
first Jeffrey W. Samek Memorial
Hillel Award for the outstanding
University of Miami Jewish law
student. Kravec has served as a
member and officer of the execu-
tive board of the Cardozo Society,
Hillel's organization for Jewish
law students.
B'nai B'rith Hillel of Miami was
the winner of this year's Haber
Award. Ten years ago the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation won the
William Haber Award for the
development of B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundations of Florida, through
which Federations cooperate in
the funding and planning of
service to college students
throughout the state. This year
the Haber Award was granted to
Hillel Jewish Student Centers of
Greater Miami for its original and
innovative programming on the
college campus, called "My
Brother's Keeper".
The Hillel Foundation is a
member of the Federation funded
by the annual federation/UJA
campaign.

Ink Links Correspondents
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
BARRY Simon was only a
youth when he discovered he
could enrich his stamp collec-
tion by corresponding
with pen-pals throughout the
world. Later, when he became
interested in traveling and
seeing Jewish sights of
interest his correspondence
took on a more inquisitive
nature.
He was looking for an organ-
ization that provided names of
Jewish pen-pals in some of the
earth's more distant locales.
Having found none, he estab-
lished International Jewish
Correspondence.
This month his non-profit
organization, which provides
the matching service to
aspiring correspondents at no
charge, will mark its 10th anni-
versary.
Simon, 45, a math teacher
who was born and raised in
Montreal, said during a recent
visit to his father's home in
Lauderdale Lakes, that there
are now some 6,000 people on
his files representing 40 coun-
tries worldwide. Miamians are
involved in pen-pal exchanges,
but Simon says he is hoping to
boost the involvement in this
area.
"I've always been interested
in the fact that we're a people
scattered in every part of the
world," Simon explained.
"The fact that I'm doing this is
in my mind helping to bring us
all a little bit closer together.
So, we realize, even if we're
living in a small community,
we're not isolated. For those
of us living in a large Jewish
community, we shouldn't think
we're the one and only."
Simon's own correspond-
ence has resulted in distant
friendships with an Iranian
medical student studying in
Tehran and another student in
Johannesburg, South Africa.
He has asked Israelis how they
feel about mandatory service
in the Israel Defense Forces,
and discussed apartheid with
his South African pen-pal. He
has learned about Jewish life-
styles in Morocco and in the
Cochin Jewish community
which has existed just south of
India for thousands of years.
SOMETIMES, contact with
Jews in areas such as Ethiopia
goes beyond a pen-pal
exchange to a humanitarian
exchange when he hears of
their "dire need" for assis-
tance.
The exchanges may lead to
individual visits and Simon
says he knows of at least one
couple who were married as a
result of their initial corre-
spondence.
Simon volunteers his
services for the organization
and the Canadian Jewish
Congress provides office space
and presses to assist the
program. A North American
interested in the pen-pal
program may write to the
organization, enclosing a self-
addressed stamped envelope
and a brief autobiography that
should include birthday,
gender, spoken languages, and
who what nationality,
gender, age they wish to
write to. Simon attempts to
make the best match.

By RICHARD COHEN
The mounting furor over the
film version of "The Last
Temptation of Christ" is more
than a controversy over
whether the movie offends the
religious sensibilities of some
Christian groups.
The real issue is whether its
critics have the power to halt
its distribution and to poison
the atmosphere by making it a
Jewish issue and introducing
anti-Semitism into the debate.
The attacks on the film have
taken on an ugly, Jew-baiting
taint. They surface mainly
from fundamentalist Christian
leaders who did not see the
film but passed judgment on it
anyway as blasphemous and
sacrilegious.
One such minister called it
an attempt by "Jewish
producers with a lot of money
to take a swipe at our reli-
gion."
One of thouse who have
assailed the film is Jerry
Falwell, perhaps the most
visible churchman in America.
He also legitimized indeed,
virtually invited anti-
Semitism by predicting that
the film will unleash "a new
wave of anti-Jewish feeling."
What does "anti-Jewish
feeling" have to do with it?
The author of the novel on
which the movie is based,
Nikos Kazantzakis, was Greek
Orthodox; the man who wrote
the screenplay, Paul Schrader,
was brought up in the Dutch
Reformed Church; the
director, Martin Scorsese, is a
Roman Catholic; and MCA,
the parent company of
Universal Pictures, is a
publicly-held corporation.
The answer: Lew
Wasserman, head of Universal
Pictures, the movie's distri-
butor, is Jewish. Therefore
(the argument runs), Chris-
tians offended by the film will
blame "the Jews."
To their great credit, the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, American
Jewish Congress, B'nai B'rith
and other major Jewish groups
rejected these threats and
spoke out not only against the
noxious Jew-hatred that has
been injected into the debate,
but also in defense of the
fundamental freedom of
expression that is under chal-
lenge.
It is, perhaps, because
leading Jewish groups
denounced the threats of anti-
Semitism that Rev. Falwell
backtracked and, in a public
statement, conceded that "The
Last Temptation of Christ"
was not a Jewish issue.
He nevertheless declared
"war" on Universal Pictures
and its corporate
parent, MCA, for defaming
the Christian deity.
Clearly, those whose reli-
gious sensibilities are offended
by the film have as much right
to speak out against "The Last
Temptation of Christ" as
Universal Studios had to make
it.
Let there be a free-wheeling
debate on the merit or lack of
merit of the film itself; such
debate is the essence of free
speech. (One of the most prom-
inent Christian leaders in the
country Paul Moore, Epis-
copal Bishop of New York,
who did see the film called it
"artistically excellent and
theologically sound.")
But let there be no intimida-
tion, no scare tactics and no
appeal to the bigots and know-
nothings who are only too
eager to seize another issue
with which to bludgeon the
Jews.
Our long history as a people
has taught us that Jews nave a
special stake in a free, open
and pluralistic society.
Freedom to worship is part of
the same freedom that gives
Universal Pictures the right to
make even so highly contro-
versial a film as "The Last
Temptation of Christ."
Jewish life will not long
flourish in a society where a
film studio or a publisher, a
religious group or political
organization can be silenced
by threats of anti-Semitism or
charges of "sacrilege" or
"blasphemy."
More than 100 years ago, the
United States Supreme Court
declared: "The law knows no
heresy, and is committed to
the support of no dogma."
This sorry affair also reveals
much about the so-called
commitment to Jews and
Israel of some of our "friends"
on the religious right.
One of their leaders threat-
ened to withdraw support
from Israel unless "The Last
Temptation of Christ" was
abandoned as if support for
Israel should depend on the
good behavior of American
Jews. Such threats are hardly
reassuring about the friend-
ship of Christian fundamental-
ists either for Jews or for
Israel.

Gems From the Talmud
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
A small, almost pocket-sized volume, entitled "Gems from the
Talmud," recently came into my fortunate possession. The book
was published in 1932, and the falmudic sayings contained within
its marvelous pages were translated by Isidore Myers. On the title
page is a quote by Longfellow:
... in the Talmud told,
That book of gems, that book of gold,
Of wonders many and manifold.
In the introduction I. George Dobsevage writes that the
Talmud, next to the Bible, is the most important monument to the
Jewish genius and marks the culmination of Jewish tradition. It
tells us of life and how to live life.
On ingratitude: Cast not a stone into the well whose water
did your thirst dispel!
On learning: Say not When disengaged I'll learn!
Such leisure you may never earn.
On contentment: When is man as rich as rich can be?
When contented with his lot is he.
On envy: Some sixty pains his teeth are sure to feel, who,
fasting, sees his neighbour at his meal.
On land and marriage: To buy some land run a mile!
To take a wife pause a while!
On good acts and wisdom: Whose wisdom is surpassed by deed,
His wisdom shall remain;
Whose wisdom his good acts exceeds,
His wisdom is all vain.
On drink: To drink is a folly as well as a sin
The secret goes out when the wine has come in.
On learning from inferiors: The smaller stick can make the
larger burn;
From lesser scholars can the greater learn.
On arrogance: Whene'er a moral man uplifts
With arrogance his heart
Scholar or Prophet all his gifts
Shall soon from him depart.
On not knowing: Let your tongue accustomed grow
E'er to say "I do not know!"
Lest in error stating aught
You may stumble and be caught.
On Jewish characterists: By three distinctive signs we
trace
The members of the Jewish race:
A tender heart, self-reverance,
And practical benevolence.
On never wronging your wife: The greatest care a man must
take
Never to wrong his spouse!
Her ready tears God's wrath awake,
And speedy vengeance rouse.
This is one that hits close to home: If the wife you
have is small,
Bend to her and whisper all!
And a word at parting: When from thy friend thou art about
to part,
Let some instructive word be spoken;
That word he'll ever cherish in his heart,
And thee remember by its token.
The author is an attorney and active with the Young Leadership
Group of the Atlanta, GA Federation.
