The Jewish Floridian. "As we
understand it at this time, the
Rev. Moon has set aside SI

the State of Florida.
"The trouble with the
Unification Church is that its
leaders come under many guises
and work through many in-
nocent-appearing organizations.
Their blandishments are
notorious. They trap young
people in emotional turmoil
today, and this includes far too
many young Jewish people."
AT THE moment, Rabbi
Dobin is in contact with Plan-
tation officials to check the
legality of the Unification
Church's non-profit status. "We
intend to examine every facet of
their existence in Plantation to
see if we can't get them out."
Most worrisome for the head of
the Concerned Parents group is
the fact that the Moonies are
already distributing a newsletter,
The Orange Blossom Tribune, a
publication that plays down its
religious implications and spot-
lights feature stories attractive to
young people and recipes instead.
Dobin foresees that the
Moonies "will distribute this

To Address Maas Gala
Aya Dinstein, one of Israel's
most articulate advocates will be
the featured speaker at the Maas
Brothers salute to the Women's
Division of the Tampa Jewish
Federation this Sunday evening.
Mrs. Dinstein. wife of one of
Israel's foremost economic
authorities, was born in
Jerusalem. She is the daughter of
Arthur Ruppin, a famous Zionist
leader and force behind the
modern state.
Like her father, Mrs. Dinstein
accepted leadership roles in the
Zionist movement, first in the
youth group, and later in the
Women's International
Organization (WIZO). She
directed the Vocational Schools
Department of the WIZO
executive and later became the
international chairman of the
world WIZO executive.
Aya Dinstein has repeatedly
served as a delegate to the
Congress of the World Zionist
Organization. She continues to
participate at the highest levels
of leadership and decision-
making in the international
Jewish community and is highly
sought as a speaker.
The Maas Brothers salute to
the Women's Division Tampa

unique event. The Westshore
store is opening after hours for
the first Spring fashion of 1980
which will be held in the Suncoast

Budget Committee, told
reporters afterwards that the
Hebron affair and settlements in
general were regarded as
prejudicial to peace. But he
affirmed Mclntyre's assurance
that this would not affect U.S.
aid to Israel.
HOWEVER, Giaimo made it
clear that Israel's requests for
increased aid stood little chance
of a favorable hearing. "This is a
particularly tough year for the
U.S. meeting its budgetary needs
and a good portion of that aid
budget involves the regular
amount of money to Israel," the
Congressman said. The Carter

A gourmet feast is being
prepared by Maas Brothers
executive chef Fritz Schmitz.
Maas Brothers fashion coor-
dinator Barbara Gandy has
prepared a "feast of fashion"
featuring New York designers
and Bay Area models. The Best
of Design show will feature "crisp
spring suits and spectator
dressing," according to Ms.
She added that there will be
sportswear in the form of town
dressing, such as white linen
pants with bright tops. In some
outfits there will be "a touch of
romance, provided by soft, fluid
feminine dressing.
As Ms. Gandy notes: "This
season will be one of contrasts,
going from bold precise color in
geometric forms and patterns to
very soft, delicate romantic
looks. To illustrate those con-
trasts, we will have one scene
that is very bold with color, then
change to one where fashions are
nostalgic and soft."
Working on the event have
been Carol Zielonka and Miriam
Marcus, reservation chairmen,
and Blossom Leibowitz and Sue
Greenberger, decoration
To qualify for this special
evening a minimum contribution
of $150 to the Women's Division
is required. For further in-
formation call either of the
chairmen or the Tampa Jewish

Israel has asked for $3.45 billion.
Regardless of the assurances
that aid will not be used to
pressure Israel, the Cabinet is
expected to take a serious view of
the public upbraiding Israel has
received from Washington on the
Hebron issue. The effects the
American expressions of
displeasure will have are unclear.
The government is under
heavy pressure, meanwhile, from
nationalist and religious
militants to open Hebron to
Jewish settlement forthwith.
Leaders of Kiryat Arba, the Gush
Emunim stronghold next to
Hebron, have already engaged an
architect to draw plans for an
extensive "Jewish quarter" in
that West Bank Arab town
consisting of about 100 men
housing units and communal
facilities at an estimated cost of

Cabinet majority at this time for
such an elaborate project or for
settling any Jewish families in

Hebron as a symbolic Jewish

Rabbi Dobin admits that "in
homes with traditional Jewish
environment, young people are
less susceptible to the blandish-
ments of cults generally. But our
main purpose now is not to be
caught up in that kind of
thinking. First and foremost, we
have to try to save those who
have succumbed.''
ONE WAY is to be unrelenting
in attempts to maintain contact
with them "even if it is one-
sided, if the children never
respond. Secondly, there must be
repeated invitations to the
children to come home, if only for
visits. Most important, never
send money because it will be
instantly turned over to the
church itself."
Rabbi Dobin includes in his
operation deprogrammers, who
are psychiatrists, social workers
and family counselors. He sees
his mission in as zealous terms as
the Moonies themselves.
"The Moonies aren't even a
Christian church," he explains.
"The United States Conference of
Bishops (Catholic) and the
National Council of Churches
have both taken this position on
the Unification Church."

Purim, the most lively and
colorful of Jewish holidays, will
be celebrated this year at a party
for students of both the
University of South Florida, and
the University of Tampa.
A costume ball will be held in
the University Center of the
University of South Florida on
Saturday evening, March 1, at 8
p.m. sponsored by Chabad House
- Jewish Student Center.
Steve Singer, a student at USF
and chairman of the Purim Ball
committee, said, "This
celebration promises to be the
highlight of the winter quarter.
There will be a live band playing
both traditional Jewish and
Yiddish tunes and rock music.
Also there'll be plenty to eat and
Prizes will be offered for the
best King Ahasuerus, Queen
Esther and Mordechai costumes.
In the words of Sue Weisman,
USF student, "We've been
having a great time baking the
hamantashen and if the
preparations are this much fun, I
can imagine how good the party
will be."
Prior to the party the Megilla
(Scroll of Esther) will be read.
The Megilla will also be read
Sunday morning at 11 a.m. in the
University Center followed by a
Lox and Bagel Brunch.
"Our goal," said Rabbi Werde,
Chabad program director, "is to
show Jewish students that the
observance of Judaic customs
can be both meaningful and fun."

How Beautiful It Is
Next Friday evening (Feb. 291 one of the newest
and loveliest traditions in our community will be
observed: The Annual Intercongregational Service.
How beautiful it is when we can all come
together to worship and recognize once again how
much more there is that unites us, than separates us.
This is an opportunity to enjoy Shabbat with your
friends and neighbors no matter to which
congregation they belong. And it really does help us
realize by what leaps and bounds our community is
growing as we look around the sanctuary.
Make it a date right now. Next Friday night at
Congregation Beth Israel for the Intercongregational
Service. Let us all join together.
A Well-Deserved Honor
Congratulations, Sam Greenberg!
You well deserve the honor bestowed upon you
by the National Conference of Christians and Jews.
A Good Neighbor Award. You have indeed been a
good neighbor in helping the Russian Resettlement
program (by moving furniture and appliances into
storage, out of storage, into apartments) and the
food co-op. buying, shelving, delivering. You have
done all of this and so much more. You have been
willing to help whenever called upon.
We also congratulate your family, Judge Ralph
and Marlene Steinberg, who first suggested you had
time and energy to share. Thanks to you, too.
We are happy to announce that the NCCJ is
going to move the time of this annual awards
program so that it will no longer take place Saturday
A Dedication to Life
The World Gathering of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors planned for June, 1981 in Jerusalem
should be a momentous event. The organizers,
survivors living in Israel, the United States, France
and elsewhere, have pointed out that a gathering of
all survivors was something that many inmates
dreamed about during the dark days in the death
Survivors feel that such a gathering is some-
thing they owe the six million who died, as well as
themselves. Perhaps even more important, the
survivors feel it is an obligation to future generations
so that what happened then will never happen again
to Jews or non-Jews.
It is thus fitting that children of survivors and
even grandchildren are expected to be among the
persons attending the Work! Gathering and that
special programs wi! be scheduled just for them.
What concerns survivors most is that the
horrors of the Nazi period will not be forgotten.
Because of the advanced age of most of them, this
will probably be the only time they will be able to
meet at such a gathering.
But it must be stressed that the gathering is not
only to remember the Holocaust but to testify to the
Jewish will to life and survival. It comes 36 years
after the liberation of the concentration camps, which
is twice Chai (18), the Jewish symbol for life.
The dedication to life is also symbolized in that
the gathering will be in Israel, the Jewish State that
was created to provide a home for persecuted Jews as
well as to express the Jewish national consciousness.

THE TRIALS at Nuremberg
are coming back to haunt us.
What we demanded from in-

confessions of guilt. That was all

all peoples of the world, we as

stupidity of the notion of

thoughtless, dogmatic Christians
for two millennia
None of this is intended to

German people gone mad. What
it is intended to do is to make
some sense out of our current
hostage situation in Iran.
Our less than vague under-
standing of the trap we set for
ourselves began to spring upon
us in Vietnam, where many
people ultimately the vic-
torious people and their sup-
porters abroad regarded our
military intervention there in
Hitlerian terms. To us. they
applied the vocabulary of the
Hitler period, limning our Viet-
namese bombings and our de-
foliations in the Nazi con-
centration camp terms of
genocide and extinction.
(I AM myself one of those who
was for intervention, and I regard
our performance in Vietnam as
the hole in the dike that has since

1977, a continuing pattern of
growth for Jewish education is
disclosed with a 13 percent in-
crease in Federation financial
support. In 1978, Jewish
education received ap-
proximately 24 percent of all
monies expended by Federations
for local purposes.
Among large cities, New
York's expenditures for
education grew to almost $5
million in 1978, an increase of
over 70 percent from the
preceding year.
Chicago and Toronto allotted
well over $2 million each;
Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland,
Detroit, Los Angeles and
Philadelphia allocated S1-S2
million for Jewish education.
Day schools received over 48
percent of total Federation
allocations to Jewish education in
CJF President Morton L.
Mandel of Cleveland pointed out
that the results of this latest
survey demonstrate the con-
tinuing strong commitment of
Federations to Jewish education.
"At a time of increasing
economic pressure and need in so
many areas, our Federations are
upholding their support for
Jewish education. It is our
conviction that the future vitality
of the North American Jewish
community depends on the
degree to which we are able to
capture the imaginations of our
young people with creative,
educational programs," Mandel
"Along with other
organizations and institutions
funding Jewish education, and
with the support of parents, we
hope to continue meeting the
requirements of this vital service
The CJF is the association of
more than 190 Federations,
Welfare Funds and Community
Councils which serve nearly 800
communities and embrace over
95 percent of the Jewish
population of the United States
and Canada.
Established in 1932, the
Council serves as a national
instrument to strengthen the
work and the impact of Jewish
Federations through leadership
in developing programs to meet
changing needs in the Jewish
community; through the ex-
change of successful experiences
to assure the most effective
community services; through
establishing guidelines for fund
raising and operation; and
through joint national planning
and action on common purposes
dealing with local, regional,
national and international needs.
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion!
TERUMAH While Moses was on Mount Sinai, the Lord
commanded him to tell the Children of Israel to build a Taber-
nacle, so that God could dwell among them.
In the Tabernacle, or Mishkan, there was to be a Holy Ark.
God said: "Make the Ark of acacia wood. Inside the Ark you
will put the Laws which I will give you. Make a cover of pure
gold for the Ark."
Moses was also instructed to place inside the Tabernacle a
table of acacia wood, bearing 12 ballot the "showbread"
equal in number to the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
The contents of the Mishkan also included a Menorah of
pure gold. God said: "Make the Mishkan with 10 curtains of fine
twined linen, and blue, purple, and scarlet. Another curtain
made the same way is to be hung on four columns of acacia wood
overlaid with gold, and resting on four posts of silver.
"And you shall place the Ark of the Law in the space where
the Curtain divides the Holy Place from the Holy of Holies."
Finally, there was to be a square alter fitted with rings and
l.l.s, so that it could be carried. Surrounding all these holy
objects there was to be a courtyard about 150 feet long and 75
foal wide, enclosed by curtains of fine linen. {EXODUS

Remember when: June, 1948
The Tampa's Women's Division tops its goal of $20,000!!!
Reporting a successful campaign of $23,000, the Women's
Division leaders had reason to smile. Campaign chairmen (that
was before chairwomen were invented) were Mrs. David L.
Zielonka (wife of the rabbi of Congregation Schaarai Zedek) and
Mrs. Henry B. Wernick (wife of the rabbi of Congregation
Rodeph Sholom). This picture appeared on the front page of the
United Jewish Appeal Women's Division Record. Our thanks to
Mrs. Zielonka for sharing this picture with us.
German Newspaper
Spotlights Mossad
German newspaper Die Zeit
published a feature article giving
details of Israel's famed Secret
Service, which is known as the
Mussud. Since 1974, the director
of the Mossad has been Gen.
Yitzhak Hofi. who presents a
most unimposing appearance. He
comes across as a typical Kib-
liut/.nik. and first impressions are
somewhat disappointing.
One may ask how is it possible
that such an individual is named
to head an organization as vital
as the Secret Service? The
editors, however, reassure their
leaders that after one has talked
with the General, one comes
away with a much different and a
far more positive impression,
indeed, one of profound respect.
Like his predecessors, Meir Amit
(1963-1968) and Zvi Zamir (af-
fectionately known as Zvika). the
50-year-old Yitzhak Hofi is a
native-born Israeli. He has a staff
of approximately 1.000 who serve
in all corners of the world. They
are engaged in activities about
which the German Secret Service
has only a very faint notion.
HOFI'S AGENTS receive a
very modest salary. Compared
with other state employees, the
Mossad people have only a slight
advantage in that they have a
higher pension. The offices of the
Mossad are modest and located
in an ordinary office building
The Mossad is organized into
five divisions: a department for
secret domestic affairs, which
' maintains "non-diplomatic'
contact with other countries,
including Arab States; a depart-
ment for Arab affairs, which is
involved with secret agents
located in the neighboring
countries; a research department,
which is engaged in analyzing all
sorts of information; a depart-
ment for "special actions" as for
exampk the Fntebbe operation;
and a department which
maintains contact with friendly
secret service agencies abroad.

So many terrific "early childhood" activities are going on at
the Jewish Community Center Pre-School that we just had to
tell you about some of them. The students recently enjoyed a
field trip to the "Year of the Child" Exhibit at the new Tampa
Museum. The Red and Blue Rooms planned and prepared a joint
luncheon of pizza, fruit salad and oatmeal cookies. All classes
are working on a unit on ecology. They are learning to dis-
tinguish the natural from the man-made, end to gain an ap-
preciation of nature. They have gone on several walks to pick up
litter on the Center grounds. They have made natural mobiles
and tree pictures. One group even started their own landfill, and
another is going to make new paper from old!
nded Day participants have enjoyed a variety of
science experiments They saw a candle lift water, created an
underwater color fountain, moved pepper with soap, and
hollowed out a candle ma glass of water.
\1> anwhile, the kindergartners have been engaged in math
activities. In addition to their regular lessons in the Scott
Foreman Math Series, they have been working at selected match
centers The centers include: Attribute blocks with which the
students classify according to shape, size, color or thickness;
Univix cubes which aid in counting and comparing and the
concepts of more and less; Cuisianaire rods with which the
youngsters learn about equivalences; globoards with which they
design or copy geometric patterns, and in other centers, the
students can practice writing numbers and play a variety of
number games Can you believe this is preschool? It sounds like
a PhD program!
This official decree has come from the desk of Rabbi Nathan

5,860,900 a modest increase over
the previous year's figure of

Estimating the New York City
Jewish population at 1,228,000, a
figure based on the 1970 National
Jewish Population Study, the
authors point out that unofficial
estimates by the New York
Department of City Planning
show a 13.5 percent drop in the
city's white population between
1970 and 1977. "An extrapolation
of this figure to 1979 could reduce
the Jewish population figure for

Messianic Calculations
For those readers who are
acquainted with Tropp (Can-
tillation Symbols), the symbols
that every Bar and Bat Mitzvah
spent months studying in order
to chant their Haftorah and
Maftir, I have this to relate;
Rabbi Yehudah Leib Ha Cohen
Maimon was a master of Torah
wisdom, a man of vision and
action. When he was still a young
man serving as Rabbi in a small
Polish town, he became an ardent
Zionist-Mizrach leader.
One day while traveling on a
train to a Zionist convention he
met Rabbi Meier Shapiro, of
blessed memory, who later
became the founder of the "Daf
Hayomi" and the head of
Yeshiva Chachmei Lubin. The
following conversation ensued;
Rav Shapiro said, "I believe with
the sages of the Talmud that the
Meshia (Redemption) will arrive
only through a Miracle, yet you
Zionists want to hasten the
coming of the Torah and our
Talmudic sages." Rabbi Maimon
replied; "If your Reverence
would only spare me a few
minutes more, from the very
Bible you are holding I can prove
that the redemption of Israel
must come through natural
means. Even from the Can-
tillation (Tropp) symbols I can
derive the proof that the editor of
the Tropp was speaking to us of
the destiny of our people.
"Mahpach Pashtah equals We
see the reverse of the normal;
Zarkah Segol equals the Jewish
people, the Chosen ones tossed
from country to country, place to
place; Munach Rehvee-ee, equals
our nation is in its fourth exile
and still finds no resting place for
its people, no Munacha (Peace);
Azlah Geireish, Geirshayim
equals the nations continue to
expel us from every land, must be
forced to become wanderers?
Why? The answer is Kadmah
Veazlah. equals God orders us
that we should hurry to Eretz
Yisroel (Land of Israel) through
natural means in order that He,
the King of Kings should return
there, even as our sages have
written; "Thus saith the Lord; I
shall not enter into the
Yerushalayim above until Israel
shall have entered into the
Jerusalem below."
Thus it has been through the
ages since the loss of our national
independence. Attempts were
made to discover the exact date
of the Redemption, the coming of
the Messiah.
In the Book of Daniel we find
mentioned at lease six Messianic
1 "And he will speak words
against the Most High, and the
saints of the Most High will he
oppress, and think to change the
festivals and the law; and they
will be given up into his hand
until a Time and Times and Half
A Time." (Daniel 7:25)
A Time is the period of the
duration of the Byit Ri-shon
(First Temple) which was 410
years. Time and Times and Half
A Time is 3'/i Times 410 years
which equals 1435 years. Add
this to the year 68 C.E. (year of
the destruction of the Bayit
Shayni (Second Temple) and you
get the year 1503 C.E. as the
Messianic year. Needless to say
the Messiah did not come that
In all the calculation questions
had to be answered. Do days
mean years? Do weeks mean
Seven Years? How long is Time?
Does Time mean season? Is
Time, Times and Half a Time,
equal to 2'/> or 31/* times? It
becomes a fascinating enterprise
of unraveling the great mystery,
"When will the Messiah come?"
Even in Christianity we find
such men as Luther calculating
the coming of the Messiah.
Luther figured that the Messiah
will come in 1558, or 105 years
after the conquest of Con-
stantinople by the Turks (1453).
He figured that the word Time in
the Book of Daniel refers to the
age of Christ (30 years) therefore
the passage "Time. Times and a
Half a Time equals 30 + 60 + 15
equals 105 years to be added to
1453 (see above) equals 1558. He
preached to his followers that the
senmd coming would be in 1558
Under the influence of the
Kabbala the science of (iematria
(the interpretation of a word
according to Numerical value of
its letters) was highly developed
and elaborated. The books Sefer
Yezirah (Book of Creation) and
Otiot De R. Akiba (Letters ol
Rabbi Akiba) gave great impetus
to this type of calculations.
"By means of 32 mysterious
paths of wisdom did the Lord of
hosts ordain and create this
universe (22 letters of the Hebrew
alphabet and or plus 10 Sefirot
(vowels). (Sefer Yezirah)
"R. Akiba said: the 22 letters
by which the Torah was given to
Israel are engraved with a
flaming pen upon the crown of
God, when God made ready to
create the world, all the letters
descended and stood before Him.
each one said, "Through me
create Thou the universe." (Otiot
DeR Akiba)
In conclusion, the great Sage,
Maimonides writes concerning
the Messianic calculations (1135-
12041: "It is fundamental to the

Jewish religion to believe in the
coming of the Messiah: even if he
is delayed long, wait for him. But
no one should attempt to fix the
time, nor find Biblical texts from
which to deduce the time of his
coming." (Hayasod, Chapter 10)

Women's American ORT Helps
With Falashas'Relief Program | G0P Ur^ed t0 Supp
Israel Withdrawal
NEW YORK The 2,000-
year-old Ethiopian community,
among the most ancient in the
Diaspora, presently numbers
some 28,000. The Falashas live in
primitive conditions in remote
mountain villages scattered
throughout the northwestern
section of the country.
For the past two years.
Women's American ORT has
coordinated a relief program for
the oppressed, impoverished and
long-forgotten black Jews of
Ethiopia, who call themselves
Beta Israel (House of Israel), and
are known to their neighbors as
Falashas ("strangers"). David
Kessler, chairman of the Falasha
Welfare Association in London,
calls the program, "One of the
most remarkable operations in
Jewish rehabilitation being
undertaken by a team of
dedicated workers.''

Platform Committee hearing of
the Republican National Com-
mittee here. Alexander A. Simon
urged the GOP to adopt a reso-
lution that Israel withdraw to the
pre-June 5, 1967 boundaries.
Simon gave testimony to the
committee in behalf of the
National Association of Arab
Fort Lauderdale Mayor E.
Clay Shaw termed Simon's pre-
sentation "ludicrous." Speaking
as a panel member of the Com-
mittee's hearings, Shaw declared
that "any consideration of an
Israeli withdrawal should be done
after face-to-face negotiations
with her Arab neighbors."
THE FORT Lauderdale mayor
declared that "Israel has the
right to live within secure, recog-
nized and defensible borders. I
find it unthinkable that Israel
gave away the only bargaining
position she has prior to any
movement on the part of her
Arab neighbors.
"The refusal of Jordan and
Syria to participate in the peace
process indicates to me wh/>
desires peace in the Middle East
and who does not."
Also addressing the panel was
Miami businessman and Jewish
community leader Norman
Braman, who declared that
"Israel, since its birth, has been a
nation suited to the promotion of
America's foreign policy, goals
and ideals."
BRAMAN SAID that "Israel
has the capacity to defend itself
without direct U.S. involvement
and has been a consistent and
reliable friend of the U.S., even

Egyptians Will Get
Tougher, Areas Warns
Moshe Arens, chairman of the
Knesset's Foreign Affairs and
ity Committee, warned here
th;ii Israel's economic woes
might weaken its defense ability.
"Israel is lacing now a shor-
tage of funds and resources and
that might influence its
Becurity," Arens said in an in-
terview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency at the
conclusion of his two-and-a-half
week \ isit to the United States.
ARENS. a member of Likud,
was among the 26 MKs who
VDted against the (amp David
accords in the Knesset. Asked if.
in retrospect he would still vote
again against the Camp David
agreements in view of the
Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty and
the normalization process that
followed he replied: "I voted
against the agreements because I
thought Israel was taking
unreasonable risks. My op-
position was not to the peace
agreements but rather to its
terms. I was especially concerned
over the oil fields in the Sinai and
the airfields Israel agreed to give
!>ack to the Egyptians."
He added: "As far as I am
concerned Israel's energy
problems today are even worse
than it used to be. The same
situation is with the
redeployment of Israel's forces in
the Negev. Today it's not clear at
all how we are going to finance
this redeployment. If we will not
get the necessary funds wi are
going to face difficulties.' He
said the redeployment ol the
h reel Defense Force in the *
will requinfal least $5 billion.
\rcns said that those in Israel
who assumed that President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt is not
really interested in solving the
Palestinian problem and Chat he
w ill ease th pressure on Israel as
tar as Judaea and Samaria are
concerned once Sinai is restored
to Egyptian control, were
"ISRAEL IS finding that it is
under stronger Egyptian
pressure now for concessions in
Judaea and Samaria," Arens
observed, with a threat hanging
on the horizon that if Israel will
not l>e forthcoming, a situation
w ill be created in which Israel will
have neither the Sinai nor a peace
with Egypt."
Noting that Israel uses about
160,000 barrels of oil daily, Arens
said that the energy situation in
his country is "grave," con-
sidering the high cost of gasoline
and the fact that many countries
refuse to sell oil to the Jewish
State. "This situation can be
even graver if one day Egypt
decides it is not going to provide
Israel with the 40,000 barrels of
oil (a day) she is seeking."
