'Scientific Creationism9
Violation of Separation
NEW YORK The American
Jewish Committee is declaring
that the "scientific creationism"
movement, which seeks to teach
in public school classes the story
of creation as depicted in Genesis
alongside the theory of evolution,
is essentially religious in nature,
and as such "should have no
place in public school education,"
since that would violate the con-
stitutional doctrine of separation
of religion and government as set
forth in the First Amendment.
The human relations agency
points out that "creationism
cannot be examined critically on
the basis of evidence foe or
against it" and that "it can only
be accepted or rejected as a
matter of religious belief."
ON THE other hand, a state-
ment added, the theory of evolu-
tion can be put to scientific test.
"We oppose efforts to promote
the teaching of religion under the
guise of 'scientific creationism' in
public schools," the American
Jewish Committee statement
The A JC statement, which was
prepared by its Domestic Affairs
Commission, of which Sholom D.
Comay of Pittsburg is chairman,
and Seymour Samet is staff
director declares.
"The American Jewish
Committee has always maintain-
ed that the furtherance of
religious beliefs is a respon-
sibility of the church, the syna-
gogue and the home, not of the
public school. This policy is in
full accord with the consti-
tutional doctrine of separation of
religion and government, as set
forth in the First Amendment. It
is for this reason that we oppose
efforts to promote the teaching of
religion under the guise of 'scien-
tific creationism' in public
"THE 'scientific creationism'
movement seeks to teach in
public school science classes the
story of creation, as depicted in
Genesis, alongside the theory of
evolution. Since this viewpoint is
essentially religious in nature,
rather than scientific, its ad-
vocacy should have no place in
public school education. As a re-
ligious viewpoint, creationism
cannot be examined critically on
the basis of the evidence either
for or against it; it can only be
accepted or rejected as a matter
of religious belief. The theory of
evolution, on the other hand, can
be put to that test. The 'creation-
ist' account, even if styled 'scien-
tific', does not belong in any
science curricula in public

The "Debunkers," those who would try to make us believe
I that the Holocaust never happened, are setting their sights on
1 our college students. Their propaganda has a recurring theme
3 throughout, a theme which is as follows: "If the Holocaust can

The disseminator of the above is the so-called Institute For
i Historical Review, P.O. Box 1306, Torrance, California, 90505.
The "Institute" peddles a list of books and pamphlets to the
[public under the guise of history. For example, in The Six
\Million Reconsidered, we are urged to read for the first time how
("The Mafia is run by Israeli's, how Nuremberg evidence was
[collated by Hollywood, and how the Talmud preaches genc-
Other titles include The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, Six
Million Lost and Found, Debunking the Genocide Myth, and
Anne Frank's Diary A Hoax.
As concerned Jews, we should all be aware of the existence
and virulence of the Debunkers, who would try to rewrite and
negate history in their attempt to promote their own brand of
Anti-Semitism. Jewish youth should be made aware of the
attemps that will be made to influence their minds. Educating
them about the Holocaust is the best preventive measure, giving
them the background and the facts necessary to combat the
propaganda and lies of Debunkers such as the "Institute."
The Jewish response must be to 'Debunk the Debunkers"
to show them for what they are Jew haters, not historians.
CRC and the Tampa Jewish Federation will continue to make
you aware of Anti-Semitism in its many forms. Our effective
response to the Debunkers of the world is our most positive
weapon against Judiasm's enemies.

Tampa Bay Region of Women s American ORT recently held its Mid Year Evaluation. At that meeting a
film was shown. The Link and the Chain,- about ORT schools in France. This film portrayed the true
helfulness of ORT in taking underprivileged children and teaching them a vocation to help raise them-
selves from poverty to a higher standard of living where they can respect themselves and be proud. After-
wards workshops were held where different committee concepts were discussed. One main sujbect dis-
cussed was Anti-Semitism and how we can stop it from spreading. A delicious meal, prepared by the
Region Executive Committee, was enjoyed by all. This photo shows Region president, Susan Brimmer,

12 year old Andy Lynn, son of Robert and Cookie Lynn, is
really shining in the world of academia and we would like to tell
you about it. In January, he was invited to sit for the 12th grade
college boards (Scholastic Aptitude Tests) even though he is
only in the 7th grade. Andy was invited to sit for these by Duke
University as part of a talent identification program that they
are sponsoring. To qualify for an invitation to sit for these
SAT's, you must be a 7th grader in the Southeastern United
States who scored very high on your school achievement tests.
Well, recently Andy and his family were informed on the results
of the SAT's. Andy scored so well on 2 of the 3 sections, (Math
and English), that he will be recognized at an awards program
held at Duke University this summer. The Lynns hope to travel
to Duke for the ceremony. We think you are terrific, Andy
many congratulations on your outstanding academic
A rousing round of applause goes to Tami Fox, 16 year old
daughter of Al and Ronna Fox, on having recently been tapped
for National Honor Society as a junior at Leto High School. Of
all of the "A" students in the junior class at Leto, 40 were se-
ll fti-d by the teachers to receive this honor. Their selection was
based on academic achievement, leadership, moral character,
;\nt\ civic responsibility. In addition, Tami has been accepted for
early acceptance at the University of South Florida. Though she
hasn't definitely decided upon which institution of higher
learning she will attend (as she is waiting to hear about early ac-
ceptance from one other college), Tami will be starting college in
tin fall and therefore completely skipping her senior year in
high school.
As if devoting time to her studies is not all-consuming in
itself. Tami finds the additional hours to teach dancing, take
karate, work u a teacher*! aide at Congregation Kol Ami Relig-
ious School, hold a part-time job; and participate as an active
member in "Anchor" a school service organization, Mu Alpha
Theta a high school math honor society, and her school's
Spanish honor society.
You are a busy young lady, and indeed must be a very
proud one too!
Ixits of love and good wishes to Anna and Moe Wallace on
two big occasions in their lives. Recently, they celebrated their
55th wedding anniversary and Anna's 80th birthday. They
shared these milestone moments with their friends and family at
Congregation Schaarai Zedek. Following services March 27th,
Anna and Moe's son and daughter-in-law, Wally and Barbara
Wallace gave them a beautiful Oneg Shabbat. We send you our
hopes for many more happy and healthy years.
Toni Schultz. who is an 8th and 9th grade Math teacher at
GreCO -h High during her working hours, also coaches her
schools' math league during her after-working hours. She
hes both an Mh grade team and a 9th grade team Toni is
proud to report that her Hth grade team recently ranked second
in the I astern Division and will goon to compete in the finals on .
May 12th at McLane Jr. High School in Brandon. The team is
made up of five different members that can change from month
to month if Toni so decides. During the contests they must
compete in three of six possible categories. They are given three
written questions in each of the categories in which they are
competing, and are allowed 10 minutes to answer the questions
for each category. Greco has received an award for the high
placement of their math league, and the individual students on
the team each received a certificate. Toni you must be some
powerful teacher to coach your team into going so far in the
competition. Many congratulations to you and your students.
Our friend Renee Roos, who is a busy and active member of
the Brandon Jewish community along with her husband Pete,
was the recent social chairperson for a Brandon Cultural Center
reception. This reception was called "an artists reception" given
in honor of the opening of a new exhibition at the center which
includes photography and sculpture by such reknown artists as
Billy Sargent, Jimmy Whitecotton. David Ray Goodspeed,
Oscar Baley, Mary Moor Winnett, Jack Breit. Diane Farris, and
Susanne Camp Crosby. We love to hear about community in-
volvement by our friends, please le us know about yours.
Harriet Seeling and Trudy Harris, friends who had some
extra time on their hands but still needed to be at home a lot
because of their young children, began a terrific business in
January and we would like to tell you about it. Called "Paper
People Plus" Harriet and Trudy sell a large array of beautiful
and eye-catching personalized or commercial-business
stationery, Bar-Bat Mitzvah invitations, and accessories such as
yarmulkes, matches, place cards, napkins and favors. The great
aspect about their business is that they sell out of their home or
out of your home, if you prefer that door-to-door service, so you
an- not only getting the epitome of personalized attention but
also enjoying the best prices in town because the girls have no
real overhead! In addition. Harriet and Trudy would be de-
lighled to show their line at your organization or club if you are
inter, sled in using the sale of their wares as a fund-raiser. They
lia\ e access to all the best stationery companies such as Chase,
Regency. Royal Imprints. Hampton, and Elite and are ex-
panding all of the time Trudy and Harriet, who are relatively
newcomers to Tampa, saw a real need for this type of business in
this area. One day they hope to expand "Paper People Plus" and
open up their own retail store However, for now one of the great
advantages of calling on them is the fact that their prices can
beat the big department store and their service is truly indi-
vidualized. It sounds terrific girls, wishes for lots of success on
your new endeavor.

Jewish life on college and univer-
sity campuses throughout North
America increased by 36 percent
from 1975-1979, according to I
recently published survey and
analysis conducted by the
Council of Jewish Federations.
The CJF report "Federation
Allocations to Campus Services"
indicates that a total of
$4,971,400 was allocated by 112
Federations to campus servicei
in 1979.
Robert M. Schrayer ol
Chicago, newly appointed Chair-
man of the CJF Campus Services
Committee, pointed out that
among the trends revealed by the
study of 85 communities for
which five-year comparisons were
made is a 65 percent increase in
allocations for local programs
under Federation auspices or
under the auspices of designated
locul agencies other than Hillel.
Allocations in this category
totalled $902,000. in 1979, com-
prising 19 percent of all allo-
cations in the service area.
Funding for local Hillel rose to
a total of $3,262,400 in 1979.
more than two-thirds of all funds
allocated. This represents a 42
percent increase since 1975.
Other areas which received
Federation support were national
Hillel (BBYSA), North American
.Jewish Student Appeal, and
Judaica courses and chairs.
"We at CJF are gratified to see
the intensifying commitment by
l-'ederations to high quality pro-
gramming for the Jewish campus
community." Mr. Schrayer said.
"These efforts are crucial for the
continuity of Jewish life and the
future strength of our communal
organizations. Much remains to
be done, and we look forward to
seeing the patterns of growth in
dicated in this study continuing
in the future.
The Tampa Jewish Federation
reported a total 1980 allocation ot

Avenue on the Lower East Side
during the 1930s and 1940s, died
here last Friday at the age of 77.
Yablokoff, who wrote, produced
and directed many of the play s in
which he appeared, had the gift
for being equally at home in
drama, comedy, and soap opera,
frequently shifting from one to
the other in quick succession in
the same play.
Sometimes, at the height of a
five-handkerchief dramatic scene,
he would ask the audience for
advice on what song he should
sing to express the dramatic
moment. After listening to nu-
merous suggestions he would
ignore them all and break into the
song that had, all along, been
composed for the occasion.
Born in Grodno, Poland,
Yablokoff came to this country in
1924 and settled in New York.
BONN A joint French-
German borrowing from Arab oil
producers is likely to help pave
the way for arms sales to Saudi
Arabia, unspecified government
sources said in Bonn. Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt is said to be
strongly in favor of the new
project of financial and
economical cooperation, which
would include major German
made arms deliveries, as well as
joint French-German weapons
The sources largely confirmed
reports that the borrowing would
involve 20 billion Marks. Once
made available, the funds would
not be used to meet budget defi-
cits, but rather to finance unem-
ployment programs and other
government projects.
HAIFA Israel's largest
seaport was in mourning as
memorial services were con-
ducted for the 24 officers and
seamen who died when the bulk
carrier Mezada foundered in the
North Atlantic near Bermuda on
Mar. 8. The worst disaster in the
history of Israel's Merchant
Flags were lowered to half
mast aboard Israeli and foreign
ships berthed at Haifa port or
anchored in the bay. Families and
friends of the deceased assembled
outside the offices of the Zim
Lines, Israel's national shipping
company, which owned the
Mezada. There were no eulogies.
But Labor Minister David Levy,
representing the government,

that a "bitter fight is inevitable"
if the Reagan Administration
implements plans to enlarge its

highlighted expressions of deep
concern among Jewish leaders
about those plans.
The warning came from the

Major American Jewish

its chairman, Howard Squadron,
which note "with Alarm reports
that the National Security
Council had recommended to the

of the world's leading Yiddish-

According to Bernard

Hair's Trip Meant What?
Secretary of State Alexander Haig has sought to
calm the turbulent waters of the Middle Eaat with
hie viait there this week. The trouble it that no one
can be sure precisely and to what extent he speaks in
fact for the Reagan Administration.
Secretary Haig's trip was announced long before
the flap between himself and the President over
Haig's aU-to-flappeble month on foreign affairs with-
out first checking'.
The trip was also announced long before the
dreadful events of a week ago Monday when,
following the attempted sssasarnarion of the
President, Secretary Haig raced to the nations
television cameras to give us sJl s faulty lesson in the
succession to the presidency, and to reveal to a
stunned populace that, as of then, "I am in charge."
What remains to be seen is precisely what will
occur upon Haig's return. If Ins position seems as
solid as it did when Mr. Reagan challenged large seg-
ments of the U.S. Senate over what might have
become s confirmation wrangle.

Jat Until then, one can say little more about the trip

Letters to the Editor
5DITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
Over the past few months, the
Hoard of Directors of the Jewish
Community Center of Tampa has
discussed to adoption of a
Shabbat Policy" to serve as an
{internal guideline for all center
activities. A series of suggested
jidelines were drawn up in con-
junction with the Tampa Rab-
..iical Assn. These were then,
Ibrought before the entire Board
land thouroughly discussed and
At the Board meeting of March
119, the Center Board completed
Iwork on this matter. The exact
Idetails of the policy are not the
subject of my letter, though.
IWhat I wish to bring to the
[attention of the community as a
[whole is the outstanding ac-
[romplishment of the leadership of
|thi' Jewish Community Center.
Tampa is a community with
[diverse religious views. Often our
leaders would rather ignore the
['"problem" of Jewish standards
I for community organizations
[rather than to ruffle a few
[feathers. The leadership of the
[jCC recognized their responsi-
[bility as a Jewish organization to
| fare up to need for standards that
[meet the spirit of Jewish tradi-
[tion while workable in the
The JCC Board carried on
| several hours of discussion. The
spirit of the discussion was
ilways mature, courteous, and.
imler standing. We may have
lisagreed with each other at
.imes, but we learned to respect
differing points of view. In the
end, the Board was able to word
s|)ecific policies that are best
suited to the needs of our
community. Some compromise
was needed on various sides of
the issues, but a sense of commu-
nity accomplishment and pride
emerged from these meetings.
I wish to commend the JCC
Hoard of Directors for these
efforts in enhancing the Jewish
quality of their organization. I
offer their achievement as an
example for other communitv-
wide Jewish organizations. Let
them see that committed leader-
ship in our community can deal
with the sensative issues of Jew-
ish observance and come to
reasonable conclusions. May this
be just the beginning of a renewal
of Jewish spirit in Tampa.

The Story of Passover
Adapted from
(Part one of Two part*)
Four hundred years of exik
- "And God said unto Abram:
Know of a surety that thy seed
shall be strangers in a land that is
not theirs: and shall serve them;
and they shall afflict them four
hundred years. And also that
nation, whom they shall serve,
will I judge, and afterwards shall
they come out with great sub-
stance." (Genesis 15:13,14).
- the 400 years of exile
and affliction began with the
birth of Isaac. When Isaac was
sixty years of age his son Jacob
was born, and at the age of 130
Jacob came to Egypt, that makes
190 years. In Egypt, the children
of Israel actually spent 210 years,
that makes 400 years in all."
. Even on that selfsame
day it came to pass that all the
hosts of the Lord went out from
Egypt {Exodus 12:41). When the
end came God did not delay them
even to the extent of a wink: on
the 15th day of Nissan (400 years
later) the children of Israel were
liberated from Egypt."
The story of Passover has its
beginning in the days of
Abraham. When God promised
Abraham (then still called
Abram I an heir whose seed would
be as numerous as the stars, God
also informed him at the same
time of the long period of en-
slavement that his children
would endure for 400 years, until
they would be liberated "With
abundant substance." First of
Abraham's descendants to arrive
in Egypt was Joseph whose
miraculous rise from slavery to
the vice-royalty is one of the most
inspiring narratives of the Torah.
In the dramatic story of Joseph
and his brothers we can clearly
see the guiding hand of Divine
Providence that led Jacob and his
family into Egypt.
The arrival of Joseph and his
family in Egypt was a march oi
triumph So was the departure.

210 years later, of his children
the children of Israel.
There was this difference: the
-.mall family of seventy souls had
become a great and unified nation
of several million souls.
The story of Passover.
climaxed by Shai-uoth (the
giving of the Torah on Mount
Sinai), is the story of the birth of
the Jewish people.
Joseph and his brothers died,
and the children of Israel multi-
plied in the land of Egypt. Soon
after King Pharoah also died, and
a new king ascended to the
throne. He had neither love nor
sympathy for the children of Is-
rael and chose to forget all that
Joseph had done for Egypt.
He decided to take action
against their influence and
growing numbers.
He called his council together,
and they advised him to enslave
and oppress them before they
grew too powerful.
Pharoah embarked upon a
policy of limiting the personal
freedom of the Hebrews, putting
heavy taxes on them, and re-
cruiting their men into forced
labor battalions under the super-
vision of hearsh taskmasters.
The children of Israel were
forced to build cities, erect monu-
ments, construct roads, work in
the quarries hew stones
burn bricks and tiles. But the
more the Egyptians oppressed
them, and the harder the
restrictions imposed upon them
became, the more the children of
Israel increased and multiplied
Finally, when the Pharoah saw
that forcing the Hebrews to do
hard work did not succeed in
surpressing their growing
numbers, he decreed that all
newly born male children of the
Hebrews be thrown into the Nile
River. Only daughters should be
permitted to live. Thus he hoped
to end the numerical increase of
the Jewish population, and, at
the same time, to eliminate a
danger, which, according to the
predictions of his astrologers,
threatened his own life in "the
person of a leader to be born to
the children of Israel."
The only group of Jews that
escaped enslavement was the
tribe of Levi. Levi was the last of
Jacob's sons to die, and his in-
fluence over his tribe was great
and lasting. They had taken over
the Torah academy that Jacob
had established in Goshen and
they instructed the children of
Israel in the knowledge of God
and his holy teachings. Thus they
were occupied with spiritual
matters and did not mix with the
Egyptians while many of their
brethren had given up their old
customs and way of life. Except
for their language, clothing and
names, many of the children of
Israel had become completely
assimilated into the social and
cultural environment of their
Egyptian neighbors, and they
were the ones to arouse the wrath
of the Egyptians. The children of
Levi. however, were spared the
slavery and oppression which the
Egyptians imposed upon the rest
of the children of Israel.
Levi's grandson. Amram. the
son of Kehot, married Jocheved.
and she bore him three children.
Their first child was a girl by the
name of Miriam, who was later to
become a great prophetess of the
Jewish people the second child
was Aaron, the highest priest of
God, famous for his extra-
ordinary love of peace. Next to
Moes. he was the greatest leader
of our nation in his time.
It was Amram s youngest son,
Moses, who was destined to lead
the children of Israel from Egypt
and to receive for them the Holy
Torah on Mount Sinai.
No longer could the children of
Israel endure their terrible suffer-
ing and persecution at the hands
of their cruel overlords. Their
cries for help, their supplications
and prayers, coming from the
very bottom of their hearts,
pierced the heavens. God
remembered His covenant with
Abraham. Isaac and Jacob, and
prepared to deliver their descend-
ants from Bondage.
Moses was eighty years old.
and his brother eighty-three,
when they entered the palace of
Pharoah. Pharoah asked the two
brothers what they wanted. The
answer they gave sounded like a
command: "Thus hath the Lord
God of Israel said. Let My
People Go. that they may hold a
feast unto Me in the desert"
iExodus 10:30). Pharoah
haughtily refused, saying that he-
had never heard of the God of the
Israelites, and that His name was
not registered in his list of the
gods of all nations. He further
accused Moses and Aaron of a
conspiracy against the govern
ment and of interfering with the
work of the Hebrew slaves. Al
Moses' suggestion. Aaron then
performed the first miracle God
had enable him to perform, but
Pharoah was not greatly im
pressed, for his magicians could
do almost as well.
On the same day, Pharoah
ordered his supervisors to in-
crease the demands on the chil-
dren of Israel and to make their
burden still heavier. If they had
time to think of liberty and
worship of God and similar ideas,
quite unbecoming to slaves, then
they must be getting too much
leisure, Pharoah thought. Where-
as they had been supplied with
the raw materials before they
now would have to produce the
same amount of labor, and in
addition produce their own raw
material for the bricks. The chil-

Passover Is A Time For Home Cooking
Passover is a holiday antici-
with excitement in many
jsh homes. It's a time for
aily gatherings, homecomings,

issover: the sweet and spicy,
loniatic, charoset of apples, cin-
namon, raisins and wine, a turkey
or roast baking in the oven, a
table set with the family's best
things and what all proper
Passover celebrations require,
whether they are the most lavish
of the simplest: Matzah.
An important observance re-
garding Passover is the eating of
matzah, or unleavened bread,
which is done in remembrance of
the Hebrews' escape from slavery
in ancient Egypt. Their departure
was so hurried that there was no
time for the bread baked for the
journey to rise.
Eating matzah is part of the
ritual service of prayers,
blessings and songs performed
during Passover. This ritual
service is called a "seder." The
matzah is usually in the form of a
wafer that can be purchased
already prepared. However, some
cooks still prefer to make their
"Passover," a half-hour docu-
mentary film hosted by Edward

According to Jewish law,
eating or preparing anythinir that
is related to leavening, or
"hametz," is unacceptable during
Passover. So there are recipes for
many treats that can be made
with matzah meal, insted of
regular flour and leavening
agents. Many Jewish cooks have
special recipes set aside just for
the Passover season: matzah
balls, baked brisket, kugels and
holiday desserts. Here are a few

Practical Conclusions'

Secretary of State Alex-
ander Haig flew from Israel
to Jordan after a 24-hour
stay in Jerusalem. He held
intensive talks with both
government and opposition
Israeli leaders. One key
session was with the top
echelon of the Israeli
defense establishment
under Premier Menachem
Begin who is also the
Defense Minister.
Israeli sources said "practical
conclusions" were "reached" at
that meeting. This appeared to

sition to the planned U.S. sale of
AW ACS aerial intelligence
systems to the Saudis.
According to some sources, Haig
was less than totally committed
to that sale. But there was no
sense that he had dropped the
idea completely.
One well placed American
source said here that the Secre-
tary of State indended to impress
upon the Saudi rulers, whom he
saw in Riyadh Wednesday, the
need for Saudi political flexibility
on the Arab-Israeli conflict. The
basic idea that Haig was selling
on this brief Mideast swing that
includes Egypt, Israel, Jordan
and Saudi Arabia, was a
"strategic consensus" between

a bulwark against Soviet ex-

through their "surrogates." In
the latter catergory, he appeared
to include the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization and Syria. He
even suggested the possibility
that current Syrian agressiveness
towards the Christians in Leba-
non was Soviet-inspired to deflect
attention from the Polish crisis.
TO ISRAEL, Haig's message
was two-fold: on the one hand he
sought to convince his Israeli
hosts of the need to focus on the
global and regional Soviet threat.
And at the same time, he sought
to assure the Israelis that the
Reagan Administration saw in
them a strategic asset and would
act to ensure Israel's continued
strength and "qualitative edge"
in Haig's own words over
the Arab potential enemies of the
Jewish State.
The overall feeling among
Israeli observers was that Haig
was perhaps hoping that Israel
and the pro-Western Arab states
will "lower the profile" of the
Arab-Israel conflict so that they
can work together with the U.S.

Preparing Your Home for PassoverWhich is Just Around Corner
Passover this year begins
on Saturday evening, Apr.
18. The holiday, which cele-
brates the exodus from
Egypt, is celebrated at a
Seder meal at home, where
the Haggadah, the story of
the exodus, is recounted.
Orthodox Jews begin Passover
with a ritual called Bedikat
Chometz (search for chometz or
things not kosher for Passover)
whi' this year is Thursday, Apr.
16. In the evening, a ritual search
for chometz is conducted, and
anything found in that category
is burned the next morning.
ALSO ON that day, Orthodox
Jews hold a fast day for Jewish
firstborn males in commem-
oration of the tenth plague, the
slaying of the firstborn male
Egyptians. In some congre-
gations, a special celebration, or
Siyum, is conducted following
which participating firstborn
males are permitted to break
their fast.
Two Sedorim are held
(Saturday and Sunday, Apr. 18
and 19). Among Conservative
and Reform Jews, there is more
likely to be only one Seder, the
first on Saturday, Apr. 18, but
that is not a hard and fast rule.
All cooking and eating utensils
are either set aside exclusively for
Passover use, or in some cases
"made kosher" in consultation
with a rabbi.
Seder is to relate, in detail, the
events of the exodus, complete
with symbolic reenactment using
kosher wine, especially-prepared
mntzoh and bitter herbs.
The bitter herbs, maror
consist of either romaine lettuce
or horseradish, and they comme-
morate the harsh conditions of
slavery in ancient Egypt. Four
cups of wine are consumed during
the course of the Seder to mark
the redemption of the Jewish
people, the sanctity of the
holiday and events related in the
All dietary laws remain in
effect until nightfall of the eighth
day of Passover, which this year
will U' Sunday. Apr. 26. The in-
termediate days are known as
Choi Hamoed (nightfall of
Monday, Apr. 20, through
shortly before sundown, Friday,
Apr. 24).
Perhaps the most central food
anil symbol of the holiday is
maUoh which is a crisp, flat, un-
leavened bread, made of flour
baked before the dough has had
lime to rise.

IT IS the only type of "bread"
which Jews may eat during Pass-
over, and it commemorates the
unleavened bread eaten by the
Jews when they left Egypt in
such a hurry that there was not
time for the dough to rise. Not
only is the matzoh eaten in con-
junction with maror during the
Seder, but also charosis, a
mixture of chopped nuts and
wine, to symbolize the mortar the
Jews used in their enforced
building activities as slaves for
the Pharaohs.
There are other foods which are
also of great symbolic
significance, all displayed on a
special plate: roasted meatbone,
symbol of the Paschal lamb
which was sacrificed in the
Temple, and some also see in it
the "outstretched arm" with
which the Lord, our Ood took
Israel our of Egypt; karpas the
celery or parsley that is dipped in
salt water reminiscent of the
spring vegetables eaten by our
ancestors at festival meals.
On the Seder table is also the
Cup of Elijah, a handsome goblet
of wine placed at the table in
honor of the Prophet Elijah,
whose coming will bring peace
and freedom to the world.
During the Seder, the master
of the house reclines on a cushion
while eating and drinking his
i wine. It symbolizes the freedom
and independence of the Jewish
people in ancient lands.
SPECIFICALLY for children,
who begin the ceremony by ask-
ing the traditional Four
Questions, to which the
, Haggadah story is a reply, there
is the Afikomen. This is a dessert
symbolizing the Paschal lamb
eaten during ancient Passover
I celebrations.
It has become the custom for
children to "steal" thfl Afikomen
and ask "ransom" for its return,
because the Seder can not be
brought to a conclusion without
all participants eating a part of it
as dessert.
On Passover, it should also be
noted that there are forbidden
foods: leavened bread, cakes,
biscuits, crackers, cereal, coffee
substances derived from cereals,
wheat, barley, oats, rice, dry peas
and beans, and all liquids which
contain ingredients or flavors
made from grain alcohol. |
APART FROM dishes with
their very specific restrictions,
the following utensils may be
Silverware made wholly, of
metal, if thoroughly scoured and
immersed in boiling water;
glassware, thoroughly cleaned
and soaked in water; metal pots
and pans used for cooking and
not baking, if thoroughly scoured
and immersed in boiling water,
Utensils used for baking and
earthenware, enamelware and
porcelain utensils used during the
year are prohibited among
Orthodox Jews. Conservative
and Reform Jews should consult
their spiritual leaders.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy
be healed in the leper" (Lev. 13:3).
METZORA This portion describes the laws for the
purification of the leper after he is healed. "Then shall the priest
command to take for him that is to be cleansed two living clean
birds, and cedarwood, and scarlet, and hyssop. And the priest
shall command to kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over
running water. As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the
cedarwood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them
and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was lulled over
the running water. And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be
cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him
clean, and shall let go the living bird into the open field. And he
that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off his
hair, and bathe himself in water, and he shall be clean; and after
that he may come into the camp, but shall dwell outside his tent
seven days. And it shall be on the seventh day, that he shal.'
shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows .
and he shall bathe his flesh in water and he shall be clean"
(Leviticus 14.4-9). Finally, after bringing an offering to the
priest on the eighth day, the former leper shall be formally clean.
Leprosy was under stood to affect objects as well as people.
The portion describes the various cases of leprosy and prescribes
their treatment: "This is the law for all manner of plague of
leprosy, and for a scall, and for the leprosy of a garment, and for
a house; and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot; to
teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean; this is the law of
leprosy" (Leviticus 14.54-57)

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Page 11
Marking his 40th year at Yeshiva University, during which time he ordained some 1,400
rabbis more than any other sage in Jewish history Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik
(seated center) sits with Yeshiva University President Dr. Norman Lamm (right). To the
Rabbi's right is Rabbi Zevulun Charlop, director of the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theolological
Seminary. The three joined faculty, relatives, friends and benefactors in a ceremony of or-
dination for 118 new rabbis on Mar. 29.
Israel on Egyptian Firm's Boycott List
An Egyptian public firm is pursuing the
boycott against Israel despite the fact that it was
lifted in the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, ac-
cording to the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL's associate
national director, said the conditions laid down by
the Alexandria Water General Authority in soli-
citing bids for piping were a "disturbing
development" and harm "peaceful relations."
In a letter to Ashraf Ghorbal, Egypt's am-
bassador to the United States, Foxman pointed
out that the water authority stipulated that any
: ii m which supplies the pipes must not ship them
on black-listed vessels, on Israeli ships or on
those vessels which go to Israeli ports or waters."
Louis E. Yavner, a vice president of the
\merican Jewish Congress and president of the
organization's Metropolitan Council, has en-
dowed an annual cash award for an "outstanding
contribution" to the teaching of the Holocaust
and other violations of human rights.
All elementary and secondary school teachers
in the New York State will be eligible for the $500
stipend, which will be awarded by the State
Education Department.
Yavner, a New York attorney and former
government official, established the award to
commemorate his retirement from the New York
Slate Hoard of Regents, the state's education
lK)licy-making body, of which he has been a
member since 1975.
Israel a country whose divorce rate is one-
twelfth the United States, is hosting the first
international conference on single-parenting. The
conference, scheduled for July 5 to 9, and
preceded by two days of intensive workshops in
I'll Aviv, is sponsored by the Bandy Steiner
Institute lor Single-Parent Families at Ben
Ciuriofl University of the Negev in Beersheva.
At last count, there were 33,000 single-parent
Familial in Israel although the definition ex-
pands to include one adult families resulting from
death, alternate life styles, single-p irent adoption
and functionally absent parents such as occurs in
I he case of alchoholism or chronic illness. Since
nationwide there are 900,000 households, it means
that I in every 30 families in Israel has only one
adult member.
Citing concern over the possible disruption of
the balance of power in the Mideast, United
States Sen. Paula Hawkins (R.,Fla.) has urged
caution in considering the sale of sophisticated
military equipment to Saudi Arabia.
"I am concerned that, the Saudis continue to
call for a holy war against Israel while at the same
lime we are considering providing offensive
weapons that could give them the ability to wage
such a war," Sen Hawkins said.
In remarks submitted to the Senate earlier,
Sen. Hawkins suggested that fears over Soviet
intervention in the Mideast should not lead the
United States into action that would prove to be
one-sided or pose a threat to Israel.
The number of Jews who arrived in Vienna
from the Soviet Union in the month.of March was
i -4D. accordii trlotte Jacobson, chairman
of the Soviet Jewry Research Bureau of the
National Conference on Soviet Jewry.
Jacobson noted that this number was slightly
below February's total of 1,407, but drastically
lower than last year's March total of 3,049. She
added that while in 1980 the average monthly
total for January, February and March was 2,958,
it dropped to an average of 1,169 during the first
three months of 1981.
In 1979, the peak year for emigration, the
monthly total reached 4,277.
Victims of arthritis, backache, tennis elbow and
similar ailments may find relief in Neurogar HI, a
new Israeli device that is used to relieve chronic
and acute pain.
This latest innovation in pain relief is a small,
battery-operated, lightweight (seven-ounce) box
of electronic wizardry developed by scientists at
I ladassah Hospital. The little box sends electrical
impulses to the affected part of the body by
means of wires leading to electrode pads placed on
the site of the pain.
B'nai B'rith International has renewed its
demand that the federal government enact com-
prehensive gun control legislation.
Jack J. Spitzer, president of B'nai B'rith, said
in u statement that the assassination attempt on
President Reagan "only underscores the neces-
sity of effective laws that will keep lethal weapons
from potential terrorists and murderers."
"We came within inches of losing another
President. Spitzer said. "Since 1933, five of nine
presidents have been the target of assassins'
guns. How much more tragedy must we endure to
compel us to act responsibility?"
The appointment of David Geller as director of
special projects for the American Jewish Com-
mittee Foreign Affairs Department is announced
by Foreign Affairs Director Abraham S.
In his new capacity, Geller will be responsible
for planning foreign affairs programs jointly with
AJC chapters througout the United States and
working with academics and other groups on
foreign affairs symposia.
Geller will be in charge of planning for AJC's
enhanced program of leadership missions to
overseas countries under the Foreign Affairs
Department aegis.
