Unique among the agricultural

seven days of the Sukkot festival.
Yet it provides year-round liveli-

Furthermore, export is increasing
steadily each year. The sale of

that birth control is very

The wonders of ancient Jeru-
salem will come to Tampa
October 11 with the premiere of a
traveling Israeli photographic
exhibit at the Tampa Jewish
Community Center.
The exhibit, entitled "Jeru-
salem: Keeping the Past Alive/'
was produced in Israel and ac-
quired for a tour of Florida by Se-
cretary of State George Fire-
stone. It is being circulated by
the Consulate General of Israel in
Through photographs and
text, the exhibit outlines the his-
torical, architectural and ar-
chaeological significance of the
holy city, from ancient times to
the present. It shows the blend of
Jewish, Christian and Moslem
influences on Jerusalem and
highlights current restoration
and conservation projects.
The Tampa Jewish Com-
munity Center is boating the ex-
hibit's appearance through
November 2. General Hours for
the exhibit to be open to the pub-
lic are weekdays from 2 to 4 and
'Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. The
center will be dosed to the public
on Saturdays, Jewish Holidays
and during special center activi-
ties. For more information, call
872-4451. Group tours and other
hours may be arranged.
The Community Center will
kick-off the exhibit's Tampa pre-
miere with a "Membership Day"
reception from 1 3 p.m., Oct. 11.
Refreshments will be served and
the public is invited.
I In addition, the Center will
have a special October Lunch
Bunch on Tuesday, October 27
from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. which
will include a tour of the exhibit
and a talk on Israel by Dr. Jim
Strange from the University of
Southern Florida.

Neil Goodman, 18 year old son of Julie and Hal Goodman,
has certainly been making his mark since he arrived at the
University of Colorado (in Boulder) as a freshman this year.
First of all, he applied for and was one of only four hundred stu-
dents accepted to the experimental honors program at the
University called Farrand Hall, after the name of the dormitory
in which members of this program reside. These 400 take special
courses taught by the heads of various departments, have spe-
cial speakers, etc. all geared towards offering a more logical ana
usable type of education to the student. Neil was elected student
president of this Farrand Hall program-dorm. In addition, he is
pledging-Zeta Beta Tau fraternity, and has become a member
of both the forensics team and of the ski team (snow, that is).
Neil, we can't believevou are doing so many noteworthy things,
and so quickly. We are'almost as proud of you as your parents
told me they are! ?
Tampa Section, National Council of Jewish Women, opened
the year with their program at the Tampo Museum the week be-

Sandy Freedman spoke. Now NCJW is looking forward to~-be
meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at the Marriott. The program
will be on Advocacy, as it will relate to the Tampa Chapter of
NCJW. Marilyn Winters, 988-9303, is the one to call regarding
this noon meeting. Before that, paid up members of NCJW will
be treated to a wine and cheese party a the Women's Survival

What terrific news we just heard about Nancy Turkel,
daughter of Sandy and Dick Turkel. She was recently elected se-
cretary of her sophomore class at Sophie Newcomb, in New
Orleans. In addition, Nancy has been appointed a Tulane orien-
tation leader and a Newcomb "Big Sister" for incoming fresh-
men. We think that all of these accolades are just wonderful-
there is nothing like enthusiastic involvement in your college
hfe. Keep up the good work- and congratulations.
Bay Horizons Chapter of ORT enrolled 18 new members
during its luncheon held at the Henry B. Plant Museum and the
Lee Scarfone Gallery at the University of Tampa. The program
was the history and art of Tampa and was a great success. Lili
Kaufmann is president and Judy Rothburd is vice president in
charge of membership. Their hardworking committee members
were Jo Ellen Lapides, Gail Verlin, Dottie Weinatein. Dalia
Mallin, Muriel Altus, Lynn Brownstein and Virginia Gordimer.
Speaking of ORT, the national convention will be held in
New York City October 26 through 29. It will be the 26th Na-
tional Biennial Convention and hopefully all 1,260 ORT chapters
will be represented. Interested in being a delegate? Call 1-586-

Post number 373 reports that she recently returned from the
four day National Convention held in Bal Harbour, Florida.
Attending this convention with her from Tampa were Max
Froman, Ben Gutkin, Nat Able, Ralph Steinberg, and Cy Woolf.
At the convention, JWV member Barney Anton won a member-
ship award for bringing in the most new members to Post num-
ber 373. Mary said that the speakers and the workshops at the
convention provided an atmosphere and opportunity for in-
spiration, interesting facts, and useful knowledge for those in
attendance. We hope that event will be the trigger for a most
productive year for your organization.

The Jerusalem Fellows
A Program to Develop Leader-
ship for Jewish Education in the
Diaspora under the auspices of
the World Zionist Organization
sponsored by Bank Leumi he-
Israel .
The Purpose
To develop educational leader-
ship for Jewish education in the
Diaspora, by training outstand-
ing young Jewish educators in
Israel. Upon completion of the
program, each Fellow will under-
take to serve in a central position
in Jewish education in the Dias-
The Need
Any system of education that
hopes, to introduce change must
formulate its goals so that stu-
dents, parents and policy makers
alike will be inspired. The class-
room, the youth movement, the
summer camp and the commu-
nity centre must be transformed
into sources of stimulating expe-
The key factor in introducing
this kind of change is a talented
educational leadership. The
"grass roots" play a vital role iri
education, but it is our assump-
tion that dramatic change re-
quires Jewish educators who can
develop new ideas, create ex-
citing programs and prepare edu-
cational materials that will affect
the hearts and minds of children.
If we hope to improve Jewish
education in the Diaspora, we will
have to develop this kind of in-
spired, committed and well-
trained leadership. Today there is
a serious shortage of educators of
this calibre-professors of Jewish
education, directors of teacher
training colleges, superinten-
dents of bureaus of Jewish edu-
cation, supervisors and headmas-
ters for Jewish schools. Unless
we locate and train gifted people
for these positions, we will not be
able to train teachers adequately
or prepare proper curriculum and
educational materials.
Jewish education will attract
talented young people to the pro-
fession of teaching if there are in-
spiring and exciting men and
women who can serve as models
and offer leadership to the pro-
fession of Jewish education.
Today, however, while there
are hundreds of scholars and pro-
fessors of Judaica in the Dias-
pora, there are only a handful of
professors of Jewish education.
There is little if any systemmatic
Jewish teacher training in most
countries, and there are very few
candidates for executive
positions. In North America it
has been difficult, and in some
cases impossible, to recruit can-
didates for the most important
leadership positions in Jewish
The problem can be solved; it
has simply not been attacked
systematically until now. There
were few professors of Judaica on
university campuses in 1955, yet
today many young people are
candidates for teaching positions
in close to 500 programs of
Judaica studies throughout the
world. The same development
can be repeated in the field of
Jewish education. The decision to
establish The Jerusalem Fellows
to train leadership for Jewish ed-
ucation is the first systematic at
temp to do so.
The Participant*
The Fellowship will be open to
any Jewish academic or
educational practitioner under 40
who sees a future in a leadership
role in Jewish education, and
may include the following men
and women:
a. Ph.D'i and graduate
students in Judaica, Education
and related subjects and ordained
yeshiva graduates, with at least
three years of practical ex-
perience in any Jewish educa
tional framework.
b. Practitioners who have
made significant contributions to
the field of Jewish education.
c Academics in other discip-
lines who wish to retrain in
Jewish education, provided they
have the necessary three years of
It is intended that at the end of
the three year Fellowship,
Fellows without a Ph.D will have

quirements at an Israeli univer-
A limited number of Israeli cit-
izens will be accepted to the pro-
Their Obligation
All Fellows must undertake to
serve in a community in the
Diaspora for a minimum of five
years after their Fellowship.
During the selection process
every attempt will be made to
develop a relationship between a
candidate and a community, with
the hope that the candidate will
return to a suitable job in that
Upon assuming a position in a
Diaspora community, each Fel-
low will be provided with a fund
for a special experimental project
in Jewish education. The Fellow
can choose to conduct the project
himself or to supervise the
project. In special circumstances,
this fund may also serve as a
salary increment for the Fellow.
The Program
The Fellowship program will
be directed by a Head Tutor who
will tailor individual programs
in Judaica, education and related
subjects at an Israeli institu-
tion of higher learning, and
private tutorials to be taught by
leading Israeli intellectuals,
academics and educators.
Fellows will meet at least once

Aa we drove (90 kilometers)
South through the Arava, again I
was taken by its breathtaking
beauty. The desolation: a few
trees, the mountains of Moab
(Jordan) to the east in a riot of
colors are spectacular. If I wished
to be alone, I could easily come
here, except for the heat. I
remembered, however, the
beautiful weather (75-80 degrees)
at Yahel, in November 4v, years
ago, and at that time of year I
could spend much time. It is so
ret and awe-inspiring to drive
ough the mountain passes and
every 10 miles or so to see a
kibbutz of green, and the
greenery of its agricultural
plantings. Since this is summer,
there is much less green than in
winter, but enough to remind one
of what dedication and hard work
will do.
Again I realized why Elijah
came here when he needed en-
couragement to carry on when he
sat under a broom tree and
eventually heard the still, small
The Arava is vast, in many
ways forbidding, but most of all
its is a place of beauty and
Yahel is palatial in comparison
to life at our little kibbutz, Ir
Ovot, where we are staying.
There are trees, flowers, grass,
air-conditioned dining room and
dorms, a library, infirmary, etc.
There is a swimming pool and
study center. Nissim Snaul, the
leader took us to the moutain top
overlooking Yahel for a beautiful
panorama. Across the road are
the groves that are tended by the
kibbutzniks, up to a distance of
only 10 meters from the Jor-
danian border.
There are about 100 people at
Yahel, 55 are members. There are
now 5 married couples and a
nursery for the children. Yahel
has arrived! It's here and the
people are working out their
Jewish existence on the land. The
money we give is used only for
the study center, library, and
other cultural programs. We need
not feel sorry tor them. (It's even
cooler at Yahel than here at Ir
Ovot which is closer to the Dead
Sea and well below sea level.)
Yahel is a place for young people,
sturdy young people who will
give up city life for life in the
Arava. They, and the other
kibbutzniks here are part of
Israel of which we can be con-
tinually proud. Being in the
Arava on a kibbutz, one un-
derstands anew the words of Max
Nordau: "We came to build the
land and to be built by it."
P.S. They couldn't find the tree
I planted 4'/i years ago. In truth,
Nissim admitted that group of
trees, planted at the inception,
looked scroungy and had not
taken root well. However, they
are still in the ground, and I am
Conversations today, with
many people, have continued to
be fascinating. I have heard the
pro-Begin, pro-Likud view
eloquently expressed, and
without apology. Most of the
people here are to the right of
Begin and believe in the
Messianic and prophetic truth of
the "Greater Israel"- anything
less, to them is cowardice.
Also, again discussions
inevitably turn to diaspora Jewry
can it survive? I hear them
Hiving my sermons, and I defend
diaspora Jewry, especially
because I have chosen to live
there and to do my best to keep
the story going. Yet. and this has
happened every time I ve been in
Israel, what they are saying
makes sense, here. They see just
a couple more generations m
America, and although I respond
with sincerity of Israel's spiritual
needs and that a ^jYB2e'
may mask just as *
convinced. The veneer, being in
the majority, does count. Nancy
says that without Israel she
would have gone (moat likely) the
way of all her friends back home,
intermarriage, Zen, etc, that her
Sunday School education didn't
prepare her to want to be Jewish.
Nancy is on a secular kibbutz, her
two sisters are on the Orthodox
kibbutz, which she thus far re-
jects and she & not too turned or*
by the Reform alternative here)
Is hers a dilemman that is unsol
vable? Is mine?
This evening we had an
animated conversation with the
kibbutz leader, Menachem Begin,
he told his people, has made the
Agudat Yisrael part of the
coalition. (Agudat Yisrael is a
religious party to the right of the
NRP.) According to the report,
the terms of the agreeement were
for Begin to seek changes in the
Law of Return i.e. to change what
has been the law since 1974 which
give some concessions to non-
Orthodox rabbis. I told him of
the outrage that such a step
would cause in the U.S. and even
the possibility that many
probably do some personal re-
evaluatwn of the recipients of
their Jewish charities if such a
bill were to paas. I told him how
UJA would suffer and Israel
would be hurt. I denounce the
Orthodox who insist on Halacha
to the utter disregard of ethics,
human concern, and a sense of
decency and who only care about
power and money. He didn't
disagree, but would not budge in
his insistence that the standards
for the U.S. A and Israel had to be
different. I replied that such an
attitude make a mockery of
everything he had told me about
"We an One." "You will chase
people away.", I said, "The tric-
kle of Aliyah will become even
less, and people who love Israel
and who deal with the real situa-
tions of intermarriage in the
United States will have no place
to go." I was angry and came on
These pepofe here at the
kibbutz in the Arava are so warm
and good, but they have put
blinders over their eyes and their
vision is (in my opinion) so
myopic. They don't realize how
Halacha can make Judaism
unJewish; not Halacha, but
those who use it to wield power.
It's an impasse and I don't know
where it will lead.
The newspapers these past few
days are full of the American non-
Othodox reaction to the Aguda's
demand for a change in the law of
return as part of its supporting
likud. Of course, the Jerusalem
Post is in full agreement with the
pluralists, but this is the middle
east and this is Israel, and terms
like "We are One" mean different
things to the Orthodox and to the
Secularists. In today's Jerusalem
Post columnist Judy Siegel,
herself an Othodox Jew, has an
impassioned article entitled
"Ministry of Shame"; the article
calls for the abolishment of the
Ministry of Religious Affairs so
that "The practice of religion in
Israel can be allowed to flourish."
Yet with it all, the longer I stay
here, the more I believe that
Israel will be able to deal with
these matters, but without my
silence. If "We are One" it means
all Jews, everywhere, I cannot
dictate internal policies because 1

by making Aliyah, but i feel
stronger each day thatDuwpora
Jewry that truly cares about
Israel must be heard from on
these religio-political issues. I use
the caveat about truly caring
because too many American Jews
will openly criticize Israel out of
their feelings of squiring. Call it
self-hate, or "What will the
gentiles sayr or anything else.

do not come to the exercise, and

staying power of American
Jewry. Despite its raucousness,
there is a human and Jewish
vitality here that simply per-
meates every place and every
moment. Israel is the center of
Jewish life, at least that's how I
feel right now as I prepare for
Shabbat. When I get home (U.S.)
I'm sure 111 return to normal and
speak of the vitality ot the
Diaspora in the most glowing
terms of which I am capable. But
I am not happy about that

chamelion? On this, my fourth
trip to Israel, I think t am im-
pervious to the propaganda. And
yet, tonight, despite my often
expressed reservations about the
wall on Erev Shabbat. I shall
return there for Erev Shabbat.
Don't ask me why! It has a
strange attraction for me that
says to me "In Jerusalem, that's
where you should be- at the wall
with your people to welcome
Shabbat." I shall be with my
people tonight.

I Sukkoth Holiday
Number 34


According to tradition, the etrog repre-
sents the heart of man. The lulav denotes his
w,'- These in essence are the symbols of the
Jewish festival of Sukkoth, which follows on
the heels of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
and which Jews throughout the world will be
celebrating next Tuesday and Wednesday.
Sukkoth is both a Festival of Thanksgiv-
ing and a period of historical romance. It
commemorates the wanderings of the ancient
Israelites in their journey to the Promised
Land; it also expresses Jewry's gratitude for
Thus, on Sukkoth, it is traditional for
Jews to erect a Sukkah an open booth de-
corated with fruits and foliage to mark the
temporary dwellings in which they lived dur-
ing their wanderings in the wilderness.
But the etrog and lulav jointly symbolize
the essential substance of Judaism through
the ages the Jew's spiritual belief and his
A Distinction Ignored
We congratulate B'nai B'rith International for
its forthright agreement with President Reagan that
"it is not the business of other nations to make our
foreign policy."
In his attack on Israel for its campaign against
the sale of the AWACS to Saudi Arabia, the Presi-
dent is blind to the clear distinction between the
time-honored American institution of lobbying, that
is, bringing political pressure to bear on the Congress
in the cause of special interests; and outright
cronyism, such as was practiced by Nevada's Sen.
Laxalt last week, when the President succumbed to
Laxalt's demand that the MX not be based in the
desert wastes outside of Las Vegas.
In the latter case, Mr. Reagan permitted such
irrelevant powers as those mustered by Nevada's
gambling organizations to interfere with the military
decision-making process involving the security of the
In the case of Israel's opposition to the sale of
the AWACS plane to Saudi Arabia, the American
Jewish community and many of Israel's political
leaders simply joined hands to function in the same
way that countless lobbying operations in
Washington have functioned for years as a means of
influencing public opinion.
Let the President and his many spokesman
make what they wish of it. But if they make of it
more than this, then they are surely making mischief
by encouraging the basest of instincts motivating
the forces of anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic
sentiment in America today.
[We Agree With Reagan
To return to B'nai B'rith International. That or-
ganization agrees with President Reagan that other
nations should not interfere in the policy-making
processes of the United States. And so, it declares,
for this very reason, B'nai B'rith opposes the
AWACS sale. Argues the organization: the real ra-
tionale for the sale "is to appease Saudi Arabia."
We agree, too. Bravo.
For the truth is that without the Administra-
tion's desire to appease the Saudis, it would never
consider the recommended military package sale to
them. The truth is that many Administration
spokesmen and many Republicans are as worried
about the sale as the Israelis are, if for different
The truth is that we are hung up on the Saudis
as "friends" of ours, when nothing motivates the
Saudis but sheer self-interest. The truth is that in
Mr. Reagan's urgent desire to sell the Saudis five
AWACS, he is caving into the pressure of another |
nation that shows its "friendship" for us by mMm -
the President' s foreign policy. J
News Briefs
State Dep't. Denies Threat to Jews
Department spokesman has de-
nied that President Reagan in his
press conference statement last
Thursday was criticizing Israel's
right to publicly oppose the sale
of AWACS and other military
equipment to Saudi Arabia.
Department deputy spokes-
man Alan Ramberg said what the
President was saying was that
only the United States govern-
ment has the right to make deci-
sions on its own foreign policy.
But he noted that Secretary of
State Alexander Haig has said on
many occasions that Israel and
other countries have the right
and even the "obligation" to "ex-
press the view on issues that af-
fect them."
BONN Foreign Minister
Hans-Dietrich Genscher is vi-
siting Qatar, a Persian Gulf state
with close political ties to Saudi
Arabia. Officials here said the
trip is viewed as an opportunity
to discuss the recent Saudi peace
plan for the Middle East which
they saw as a possible way to a
breakthrough in the Arab-Israeli
According to Bonn officials,
the Saudi plan strongly implies
recognition of Israel would bd
forthcoming and is very similar
to the principles for a comprehen-
sive Mideast peace laid down by
the European Economic Com-
munity (EEC) in its Venice
declaration of June, 1980.
The EEC plan has been muted
in West German government cir-
cles since the bitter controversy
erupted between Israeli Premier
Menachem Begin and Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt earlier this year.
Israel Mission to the UN has re-
jected a study published here on
alleged Israeli nuclear armament,
charging that "the term of refer-
ence of the group of experts set
up to study the alleged Israeli
nuclear armament was intended
to prejudge in advance the out-
come of the study."
A group of five experts was ap-
pointed by the Special UN Ses-
sion on Disarmament in 1978 to
investigate Israel nuclear capabi-
lities at the initiative of Iraq. In
its report last week the group
concluded that Israel possesses
the ability to produce nuclear
arms but said it could not deter-
mine whether Israel has already
made an A-bomb.
In a statement issued here, the
Israel Mission recalled that the
study was initiated by Iraq
"which attempted to cover up in
this manner its own military nu-
clear ambition and activity."
The Israeli statement also
noted that "a report which draws
upon technological and scientific
aspects of nuclear capability was
written by five experts, four of
whom are political scientists
while the only nuclear physicist
happens to be an Arab."
PARIS Several hundred
persons, including representa
tives of President Francois Mit-
terrand and municipal officials,
gathered outside the Rue Coper
nic synagogue Friday in memory
of the four victims of the bomb
attack that occurred during Fri-
day evening services on Oct. 3,
1980. It was a solemn occasion at
which speakers reminded France
and all other European countries
to be constantly on the alert for
manifestations of revived anti-
But the scene outside the
Liberal house of worship was a
far cry from the outrage that
rocked France and much of the
rest ot the world just one year
ago. In the aftermath of the
bombing, tens of thousands of
people of all faiths and all walks
of life marched through the
streets of Paris protesting that
such an act could have taken
place in France, a nation that tra-
ditionally abhors racial and reli-
gious hatred.
NEW YORK, Former West
German Chancellor Willy Brandt
warned here that the gains made
from the peace treaty between
Israel and Egypt appear to be in
jeopardy and urged Israel to ac-
cept outside assistance in saving
the treaty, "even if it comes from
Brandt, who heads the
Socialist International and is a
Nobel Peace Prize laureate, was
referring to the European Econo-
mic Community's (EEC) call for
a comprehensive peace settle-
ment between Israel and all of its
Arab neighbors. Israel has op-
posed the European initiative be-
cause it would associate the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion with the peace process.
The German diplomat ad-
dressed some 600 people at a
B'nai B'rith dinner, where he re-
ceived the B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional's President's Gold Medal-
lion Award for Humanitarianism.
In the course of his 40-minute
speech Brandt said his meeting
with PLO Chief Yasir Arafat in
Vienna last year was arranged
without his prior knowledge by
Austrian Chancellor Bruno
Kreisky. But he said he regarded
the meeting as an opportunity for
fact-finding and would not apolo-
gize for it. "It did not do any
harm, and it could have been
helpful," he said.

members of the Bundestag and
leaders of the governing Social

sponded to a letter on the subject

over whether the Federal Repub-
lic should end its self-imposed

Although it was first recog-

FrMy. October 9,;
JWB Posters Herald Jewish Book Month
colorful JWB posters one for
children, the other for general
interest herald the nationwide
celebration of Jewish Book
Month. The 1982 observance,
sponsored by the JWB Jewish
Book Council, will be marked
from Nov. 20 to Dec. 20, it was
announced by Dr Robert Gordis,
council president.
The yearly celebration is tradi-
tionally a time when Jewish
Community Centers, YM and
YWHAs, schools, synagogues
and libraries stage special book
programs and book fairs to focus
attention on the latest books of
Jewish interest.
The children's poster, executed
by Cara Goldberg Marks, shows
a girl and boy riding in a multi-
colored world of Hebrew letters
and hanging onto a pencil and
pen marker. '
The adult poster, designed by
Leonard Everett Fisher, features
a solid, seven-branched menorah
aflame, symbolizing the flaming
light of Jewish heritage.
"As a child, I dreaded school
as a chore," Marks recalled in
discussing the creation of the
children's poster. "I daydreamed
all the time. When I became an
adult, I came to appreciate
learning and letters in Judaism."
"What I am depicting in the
poster are children playing and
learning at the same time and en-
joying themselves," she explains.

Claims Against Germany
The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Ger-
many called upon all Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, who
may be eligible to receive grants from the Claims Conference
Hardship Fund, to file their applications not later than Decem-
ber 31,1981. More than 30 million D.M. were paid out already to
eligible claimants.
The Hardship Fund is intended primarily to handle applica-
tions from such Jewish victims of Nazi persecution who left
Eastern Europe after 1965 when the deadline for filing claims
under the German indemnification laws expired. Other persecu-
tes who failed for very valid reasons to file timely indemnifica-
tion claims in past years may also apply to the Hardship Fund.
The Claims Conference assumed the responsibility for the
administration of the Hardship Fund, which is funded by the
German Federal Government and distributed under German
Government Guidelines. The Guidelines limit individual
payments to D.M. 5,000 (five thousand D.M.) per person.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"Give ear, ye heavens, and I will speak: And let the earthW
hear the words of my mouth" (Deut. 32.1),
HAAZINU Moses' song beginning "Give ear, ye heavens,
god I will speak" contains the principal elements in the unique
jslationship between God and his people Israel. Moses opens
with a call to heaven and earth to witness his declaration. From
the beginning of time, Moses asserts, the Lord had chosen Israel
for a special place among the nations of the world. He had first
singled out Israel in the desert, whence he lovingly led them into
the land of anaan. But Israel, Moses prophesies, would abandon
their God for foreign idols. Then God would send a cruel nation
to enslave and torment the children of Israel. Eventually how-
ever, God would have compassion on His beloved people and
wreak vengeance on Israel's tormentors. All the nations would
then behold how the Lord had avenged the blood of His servants
and had made expiation for the land of His people.
At God's command, Moses prepares to ascend Mount
i NeD0, in the land of Moab. From there at a distance he is to
| glimpse the Promised Land and die; as Aaron had died at
I Mount Hor. "Because ye trespassed against Me in the midst of
I ^ children of Israel at the waters of Meribathkadesh, in the
I wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified Me not in the midst of
I the children of Israel" {Deuteronomy 32.51).

Endowment Committee To Be Formed By Federation
The Endowment Committee of
the Tampa Jewish Federation, an
arm of the Tampa, Orlando,
Pinellaa Jewish Foundation
(TOP) is in the process of forma-
tion in Tampa under the direction
of Nathan Gordon and Charles
Gordon has been the moving
and motivating force behind the
creation of the TOP Jewish
Foundation, an administrative
and legal entity, on behalf of the
three Federations. Each com-
munity has five representatives
that make up the Board of Direc-
tors for the Foundation. Tampa
representatives are: Nathan I.
Gordon, Terry Aidman, Lea
Barnett, Charles Adler, and the
Federation President, Hope
Barnett. The Foundation was
Nathan I. Gordon
created by the three Federations
as the vehicle for the joint opera-
tion, while each of the Federa-
tions promotes the program
locally through its own endow-
ment committee.
Charles Adler, Past President
of the Tampa Jewish Federation,
has been appointed to chair the
local Endowment Committee
along with Gordon. A broad cross
section of Tampa community
leaders have been invited to serve
as members of the committee.
Members of the Tampa com-
mittee to date are Doug Colin, Eli
Blumenfeld, Ed Leibowitz, Mike
Levine, Loretta Linsky, Ben
Lynn, M. William Saul, Judge
Ralph Steinberg and Herb

tion Endowment programs, re-
leased by the Council of Jewish
Federations, over $138 Million

Israeli Defense Forces are taught
concerning self-defense. It com-
bines, we are told, the moves of

Emi Lkhtenfeld is the father of
the Krav Magra system and
today at 74. he still serves as an
advisor to th* Israeli Army. Emi
began developing his ideas on
survival in his native country and
when he made his way to Israel in
1944. he convinced the army of
the merits of his ideas.
Last year, this paper published
an article provided by the Tampa
Jewish Community Center ask-
ing for young people who were
willing to spend a summer in
Israel learning Kra>- Magra who
would then return to United
States communities and teach it.
That is where Kim Roth fits in.
This University of South Florida
student, a graduate of Zephyr-

pursued the program and was one
of 20 students from the United

Krav Magra so much that he paid

Kim was no stranger to Israel
