ION of the FDR
letter in the Jewish News in 1935
was a national news sensation at
the time. It has been republished,
with background correspondence
now in a little volume, "Purely
Commentary," a selection of
Slomovitz's columns by that
name published by the Wayne
State University Press in honor
of the Jewish editor's 85th birth-
day and 60th anniversary as a
newspaperman. With it appears,
for the first time, a letter written
by Rabbi Stephen S. Wise
quoting Eleanor Roosevelt as
declaring that the Roosevelts had
a Jewish great-grandmother.
Rabbi Wise marked the letter
"strictly personal and con-
fidential," and Slomovitz ob-
served that confidence for 45
years. "I have until now refused
to release this material," he
writes in a preface, "but there is a
historical tradition that such a
document can be released after
almost half a century of
In his letter, Wise reported on
a luncheon held at his home in
honor of the President's wife.
Wise was not present but said his
wife, "who is very accurate," re-
ported the conversation to him.
"MRS. Franklin D. Roosevelt
said, 'Often Cousin Alice and I
say that all the brains in the Roo-
sevelt family come from our Jew-
ish great-grandmother.' She
added a name which, I recall it,
was Esther Levy. Then she said,
'Whenever mention is made of
our Jewish great-grandmother by
Cousin Alice or myself, Fran-
klin's mother gets very angry
and says, "You know that is not
so. Why do you say it ?",' Mrs.
Roosevelt spoke as with knowl-
edge, conviction and authority,"
Wise added. "You must not,
however, make use of this. I
think it is best to let the matter
die down now."
And then Wise who had had a
long and often stormy relation-
ship with FDR, asked Slomovitz:
"Do you not think that what
President Roosevelt wrote to you
is more or less the statement of a
man who knows what I have just
written to be true but deems it
wiser and more expedient not to
make any public mention of it at
this time?"
The Roosevelt story was one of
many, many episodes in the long
career of an enterprising,
courageous newspaperman. The
"Purely Commentary" column
was but one part of the formula
for producing a high-quality
American Jewish newspaper,
adding to a careful selection of
world, national and local news, a
running commentary explaining,
elucidating and clarifying the
major developments of the day as
they impinged on American
THE COLUMN was one of the
best features developed in the
American Jewish press in the
past half-century. Carol Altman
Bromberg. who edited the collec-
tion, doubtlessly tried to make it
a sampler of sixty years of
columns to show the breadth,
depth and scope of the editor's
interests in so many areas of
thought and action. My choice of
columns would have been some-
what different, but then. I
assume, every reader would have
his own set of preferences.

troit Jewish News and built it

during this wintry season. Jews
everywhere turn their thoughts
to the start of spring. For the
holiday of Tu B'Shevat. which
this year falls on Feb. 8. is the
holiday of winter's end in the
Jewish homeland. In Israel, by
the time Tu B'Shevat arrives, the
harsh winter rains are usually
gone, blossoms begin to appear
on the hillsides, and the flowers
of the almond tree make their
glorious debut. So, by virtue of
their ties to Israel, for Jews Tu
B'Shevat is a celebration of the
coming of spring. But. most of
all. Tu B'Shevat is the New Year
of young trees.
That's why thoughts of Jews
everywhere also turn at this time
to the Jewish National Fund
This is because the Fund is the
organization that covered the
barren terrain of Israel with the
richness of the new growth
over 150 million trees so far
and that maintains these valua-
ble forests for everyone's
pleasure and benefit.

President Francois Mitterrand's
decision to improve relations
with Israel and "help along with
the peace process." He said "it
would have been relatively easy
for us to cancel the President's
trip to Israel after the Golan

been tantamount to giving up our
own fight on behalf of peace."
of a departed loved one. Or just
for the joy of increasing the
greenery of their homeland. And
in every corner of Israel, school
children troop out to forest sites
where, to the accompaniment of
song and prayer, they place their
saplings in the soil.
But celebration of Tu B'Shevat
is not confined to Israel alone.
Jews in other lands feel the
warmth of the Israeli spring in
their hearts and help Israel's
forests bloom by contributing to
the ongoing afforestation efforts.
Each year, the JNF's Edu-
cation Department develops a
study unit and attractive display
materials designed to acquaint
the youngsters with the history
and customs of the holiday and
the crucial role that the JNF has
played for 80 years in the re-
demption of the Land of Israel.
By participating in the JNF Tu
H'Shevat educational project, the
students learn that whoever ful-
fills the holiday mitzvah of plant-
ing trees in the soil of Israel
makes a personal commitment to
the greatest modern miracle of
the Jewish people the rebirth
of the State of Israel.

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Page 3
Spotlight on: George Karpay
To be the campaign chairman of
a Federation drive in a good size
\city is to work hard, be part of
\the decision-making, and to be
{seen as a leader, ft takes time,
{dedication and a lot from your
hishhes". What would make
someone assume the responsibil-
ity for this task twice in 10 years ?
\George Karpay, this year's gen-
eral campaign chairman for the
\l982 Tampa Jewish Federation
campaign talked with The Jewish
''loridian about why he has twice
issumed this mantle.
"This job takes somebody who
I will make a significant contribu-
tion of time. At this juncture, I
I think I will have that. My son
(Barry Karpay) and my son-in-
[ law (Andy Berger) and others in
my organization (Karpay
Associates, Inc. builders of Tira-
berlane) are quite capable of
handling the business for the
time it will take to manage the
| campaign.
"When I was originally asked,
I said, 'No'. Then I reconsidered.
For a brief period I'm putting my
| business interests on the back
burner. It also takes a significant
contribution in money to show
that I will put my money where
: my mouth is. This I am willing to
From these remarks it is obvi-
ous that George Karpay is a man
who speaks directly. He is also a
man who is known for getting
things done.
In 1973, when the Yom Kippur
War broke out, George Karpay
volunteered to be the campaign
chairman for the Federation
drive. This was after having
served as president of the Jewish
Community Council (an earlier
name of the present Tampa Jew-
ish Federation). He has served on
the board of Congregation
Rodeph Sholom and many Jew-
ish community boards in Tampa.
Why this devotion? "I feel that
Christians will take care of Chris-
tians. Only Jews will take care of
Jews," he said. "When I read the
paper and news magazines, I
know that as Jews we must do
something. I could not sit back
and put down the papers and
wait for someone else." This is
indeed the "George" in "let
| George do it."
"The support for Israel that
comes from the Federal govern-
ment and the general community
is directly proportionate to the
funds raised by the Combined
Jewish Appeal," according to
| Karpay. He feels that the funds
raised therefore are not only im-
portant for their own value, but
I for their reflective value.
His plans for the campaign?
I We are going to see more peo-
Iple. That is number one And we
are going to try to have pledges
increased by 50 percent. Israel's
I needs are increasing. Our local
[agencies have great need for the
[service they provide. Every
[agency asks for more money .
|and we don't have it!"
The continuing growth of the

[particular concern to George and

the Karpays are not

find George reading. "I have a
voracious reading appetite," says
George. "ChurchiWs History of
the English Speaking People, the
Lhirants that is what I enjoy.
And when there have been bad
tunes, that is when I read and
think more."
How did the Karpay famUy get
to Tampa? George explains it
this way: "In 1967. I was selling
life insurance in New York. The
57 recession hit, and there was
no more business by 1969. The
West Coast of Florida was being
billed as the hot spot' which was
next to emerge. I came down to
see for myself and what was the
first stop? Tampa, St. Pete and
"I bought 72 lots on that trip,
sellling 660,000 worth of life in-
surance while I was here, in order
to pay for them!" That was in
July of 1989. While real estate
and insurance may not necessari-
ly mix, George knew about real
estate from his family and from
his major at the University of
Indiana: Real Estate and Land
Economics. He has put that de-
gree to good use. In 1977, he was
named Builder of the Year by The
Florida Builder Magazine and in
1980, he was named Homebuilder
of the Year by the Homebuilders
Association of Greater Tampa.
His brother Irwin and his wife
Rhoda followed, coming to
Tampa in 1960 and in 1961, Joel
Karpay and his wife, also Rhoda,
joned the other brothers. The
brothers worked together in
Tiffany Homes.
Since that time, there has been
Flair Homes, which merged with
Leisure Technology; Seven
Lakes, in Ft. Myers; subdivi-
sions in Hillsborough, Polk, Pin-
ellas and Lee Counties; high-rise
and mid-rise condominiums on
the beach and now, Karpay As-
sociates, Inc.
"It's expensive to be Jewish,"
says George Karpay, "But;, we
have to support Jewish causes."
This is what prompts this man to
twice step forward as a leader in
the Tampa Jewish community.

A Happy Ending
We share with the rest of the American com-
munity the joy in the freeing of Lt. Gen. James L.
Dozier. At the same time, the humiliation of his Red
Brigade captors underscores the fear that their ter-
rorist comrades will be looking for revenge.
As our staff report this week indicates, the link
between the Red Brigade and Middle East terrorism
is undeniable. In fact, the link proliferates like a
cancer to show Middle East terrorism tied to
terrorist activities elsewhere: the Bader-Meinhof
outfit in West Germany, the IRA in Northern Ire-
land, various neo-Nazi elements in England, the
Zengakuren in Japan.
It is no secret that Middle East terrorism is now
establishing equivalent networks of mischief and
destabilization in Latin America, as well.
The problem is that, especially in Europe,
authorities have been less than willing to run the
sources of terrorism down to their very roots. One
theory has it that they are afraid to discover what
they know in their gut to be there.
The Dozier story is unique in the sense that it
represents a triumph for oganized society and a
defeat for the forces of terrorism and destabilization.
It is not quite clear what the Italian authorities have
found out about the operations of the Red Brigade
and its links to terrorist organizations elsewhere that
was not known before.
The Dozier story has a happy ending for the
General, his family and the American people. We
must, however, be prepared for sadder stories to
come, especially if we continue to give lip-service to
the dangers of terrorism, but to be disinclined to
meet it in the gutter where it lives and to put a net
over it. Once and for all.
After Apr. 26, The Deluge
We need no tape recorder in the White House to
know the substance of the talk between Egypt's
President Hosni Mubarak and President Reagan. In
two words, Israeli "intransigence." Object: How to
deal with it.
The Israelis areas capable of reading the Mu-
barak-Reagan agenda without tape as anyone else.
Their problem is just as simple: How to give back the
Sinai in the certainty of an Egyptian-Israeli freeze
almost immediately after Apr. 26.
What it all comes down to, even before the Sinai
withdrawal, is the growing image of Egypt as peace-
maker and reasonable, and the growing image of Is-
rael as a pariah nation.
Israel as pariah was hard enough to deal with
prior to the AW ACS debate and the Administra-
tion's victory. But what followed was worse: a vic-
ious anti-Semitic business emanating from Capitol
Hill and from which not even Mr. Reagan was bar-
redan anti-Semitic business directed not only at
Israel, but at American Jews themselves.
Somehow, the Administration's determination
to paint both Israel and American Jews as less than
savory if it failed to win the AW ACS debate has not
stuck among Americans generally, perhaps because
the Administration did indeed win.
And so now, phase two. This explains the grow-
ing number of vicious stories, all negatively cast in
the vilest terms, appearing on the front pages of
American newspapers in the more recent past. Ob-
ject: How to paint Israel in such a poor light, that its
sense of alienation from respectable Western civiliza-
tion will ostensibly reduce it to a whimpering deci-
sion to do whatever the President may command.
Hence, the Mubarak-Reagan meeting to deal
with "intransigent" Israel. Until Apr. 26, both these
leaders may be expected to handle their decisions and
their words carefully. Once the Sinai is back in Mu-
barak's hands, the deluge.

FDR and the New Federalism
Friday, February 5.1982
Volume 4
12 SHE VAT 5742
Number 6
IT IS clear that no one intend
ed it to be. but the hundredth an-
niversary of the birth of Franklin
Delano Roosevelt has turned out
to be a major indictment of the
New Federalism.
Historians may someday won-
der whether President Reagan
timed the unveiling of his ulti-
mate program with the centen-
nial celebration as a kind of inside
joke. If he did. the joke has
A three-hour David Brinkley
television presentation recalling
the FDR presidency once again
set a spotlight on the class an-
tagonism of the rich and the
privileged divided against the
poor and the downtrodden, those
divisions that sharpened so peril-
ously during the depression era.
What emerged were bitter mem-
ories of socio-economic depres-
sion drama from which the
Rooseveltian New Deal bore the
nation away on a sea of alphabet
soup-AAA, CCC. NRA, WPA.
NLRB. You name any set of let-
ters; they were all there.
INDEED, just about every an-
niversary analysis in the media,
sympathetically or otherwise,
limned FDR as an aristocratic
knight wearing the favor of op-
pression in the battle against the
eartdists and the international
And so. President Reagan's
New Federalism could not have
been launched at a worse time.
Ry all odds (except among the
cartelists and the international
financiers), the President came
out second worst. He didn't have
to be mentioned in any of the an-
niversary pieces in order to win
that accolade. He was there by
the incipient weight of his gov-
ernmental philosophy.
During the previous week, for
example, he had emerged as the
juggernaut aimed at dismantling
federal programs in the field of
energy conservation by up to 90
percent, including a 50 percent
reduction in the budget of a task
force invested with the power to
investigate windfall oil profits
and the petroleum industry's
quite regularly-practiced fraud in
escaping the payment of even
those taxes legitimately due the
government on the record.
will be calling for a SI.5 billion-
plus budget increase for nuclear
weapons development added to a
$4 billion budget already opera-
tional in 1981-82.
No one watching the various
FDR anniversary programs on
television, including Brinkley's
on ABC-TV, or reading articles
about the Roosevelt era in the
press could have missed the sor-
rowful contrastespecially sor-
rowful for the growing mass of
unemployed and the burgeoning
corps of the nation's oldsters, all
of them disinherited by the New
Federalism, while business in
death, better than usual, goes on.
This is especially so because
the Roosevelt era is by now no
longer simple history, the chron-
ology of events mindlessly re-
corded; rather, it has long since
been elevated to myth, a far more
potent panorama of the past, in
which the historical fact becomes
the kernel of a heightened per-
ception of history wrought by
succeeding generations, and each
of which deposits an overlay up-
on the facts of history with its
own unique perception of the
EXAMPLE: "Brother, can
you spare a dime?", even today
the theme song of the depression,
is myth. Hoovervilles, on the
other hand, those shanty towns of
piano boxes and garbage cans in
which people lived back then,
were distinctive landmarks
(facts) of the depression period
nothing more.
Hoovervilles, however deplor-
able, were no worse an emblem of
President Roosevelt
American indifference to human
misery than the bag-people of our
great cities (facts again) today.
But "Brother, can you spare a
dime?" is a universal expression
of depression anguish that hita
the primordial center of human
consciousness far beyond the ca-
pacity of any single fact of that
historical era to hit it.
As myth, "Brother, can you
spare a dime?" touches the most
primitive emotional roots of
those who lived through the era
with an immediacy that rekindles
their fears for the future under
President Reagan's New Federal-
ism. Since myth deals with com-
monalities in all human exper-
ience in all cultures and all
civilizations in a way that history
can hardly begin to do, it is clear
why President Reagan was on
trial last week.
THE REAGAN New Federal-
ism, by definition, suggests a re-
turn to the America that once
was, the clock wound backwards
to a time of socio-economic an-
tagonisms and sharp divisions in
a presumably classless society. It
is history subjected to the rein-
tarnation of corporate indiffer-
ence to human need and the ele-
vation of corporate profit to a
status of the divine.
But then FDR will have to be
wound down. too. Indeed, that is
what Mr. Reagan is attempting
to do in his New Federalism, to
wind down the New Deal, to turn
it bock as if it never occurred. It
is aiming to tell people that their
visceral understanding of their
liberation from corporate indif-
fiTence and the excesses of cor-
porate profit is all wrong. It is
aiming to legislate that their
myth of personal salvation at the
hands of FDR has died.
Since we live in our viscera
more than anywhere else in our
bodies, and since it is in the na-
ture of myth not to die (only his-
tory can die when the revisionists
of history rewrite it, such as
Adolf Hitler or Anwar Sadat),
what President Reagan can hope
for in his New Federalism is little
more than a short-term success at

The Tampa Jewish Community Center has announced
the beginning of its "January White Sale." Our annual
membership drive is underway and in order for us to grow
and prosper we decided not to run an ordinary, ho-hum
sort of campaign, but to pass the excitement, involvement
and fun on to the whole community. So get in on the bar-
gains a sale is a sale!
For each new member that joins the JCC upon your
recommendation, you will receive $25 off your own mem-
bership dues. So the more people you get to join our fam-
ily, the more you benefit. If you bring in three new appli-
cations, that's $75 off your dues, up to a maximum of your
own total fee for membership. Just make sure that each
new application bears your name, as recommending them
to the center.
The "White Sale'' campaign begins in January and con-
tinues until Family Fun Day on April 18th. Announce-
ments and awards for the most new members brought into
our center will be made on that festive day.

shooting for as we wind up our largest fund-raiser
ever here at the JCC: "THE ISRAEL FLY-
We are selling only 300 tickets (at $100 each) for
some lucky couple to win a trip to Israel for one week
with a $1,000 spending allowance. Or, if you are not
as lucky, you could win a color television, free center
memberships, or many other great prizes.
The Center's Board of Directors are selling the
tickets, culminating with the drawing at a drawing
party on Saturday night, March 6. More information
on the party will be in The Floridian later this month
and in next month's centerfold. All persons who buy
tickets will be invited to the party.
Center memberships are on the rise in '82, but
we still need to keep working to make the center more
of a focal point for Jewish life in the Tampa area.
Hopefully, by adding programs designed for Jewish
participation for people of all ages, we can improve
the membership.
I know for a fact that our membership com-
mittee here at the Center is working hard to make

I had the opportunity last month to speak to the

Haig Made Little Progress in Jerusalem
By GIL SEDAN (Jerusalem)
And HUGH ORGEL (Tel Aviv)
Secretary of State Alex-
ander Haig ended his two-
day visit to Israel with a
frank admission that very
little progress was made to-
ward narrowing the differ-
ences between Israel and
Egypt over autonomy on
the West Bank and Gaza
Haig told reporters at Ben
Gurion Airport before his depar-
ture for Cairo that *'I would like
to emphasize that there are still
far more differences than there
are agreements and there is still a
great deal of work to be done."
Although he continued to de-
fine his visit his second in two
weeks to Israel and Egypt as a
"fact-find'* mission. Haig said.
"We did bring some ideas and
will bring some ideas to Cairo."
He did not disclose the nature of
those ideas. "I will pass on from
here to Cairo and continue the
fact-finding process," he said.
HAIG MADE a point of intro-
ducing one of his aides, Richard
Fairbanks. former Assistant
Secretary of State for Congres-
sional Relations, hinting that he
would represent the U.S. at the
autonomy negotiations. He said
it was too early to formally an-
nounce Fairbanks' appointment
as his special envoy for the talks
but observed that the important
part of his name was its first syl-
lable "fair."
Haig met with Premier Mena-
chem Begin for four hours, twice
as long as originally scheduled,
indicating that they had discuss-
ed the problems of autonomy
agreements in considerable
depth. He emerged from the
meeting saying there was "a
great deal more progress to be
It is believed that at the meet-
ing, Begin categorically rejected
an American proposal to include
East Jerusalem Arabs in the ad-
ministrative Council which would
be the self-governing body in the
occupied territories under the
autonomy scheme. Haig's talks
with Begin reportedly concen-
trated on the size and authority
of t he administrative council.
reportedly proposed a 40-member
body. Israel objects to any body
of over 20 members on grounds
that it could become the nucleus
of a Palestinian parliament.
Egypt is said to want an 80-
member administrative council.
There is also wide disagree-
ment over its power. Israel would
veto any proposal to allow the

autonomy committee headed by
Interior Minister Yosef Burg, Is-
rael's chief negotiating body.
Their discussion reportedly was
devoted to the problem of Israeli
settlements in the occupied terri-

were of vital security importance
to Israel and that settlement ac-
tivity would continue on the
West Bank even after autonomy
went into effect.
sources, Haig demonstrated deep
knowledge of the various aspects
of the autonomy negotiations and
seemed determined to achieve a
modicum of progress during the
delicate period between now and
Apr. 26 when Israel is required to
complete its withdrawal from Si-
nai. Haig seemed determined to
avoid any pitfalls that might de-
lay the withdrawal.
He and Foreign Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir held a joint press
conference at Ben Gurion Airport
before the American party left for
Cairo. The Israeli Foreign Minis-
ter sounded more upbeat than his
"I want to emphasize that pro-
gress was achieved in all the
spheres and can safely describe
the talks as having been excellent
and invaluable," Shamir said.
"New light has been thrown on
many points under discussion.
We have once more demonstrated
the seriousness of our commit-
ment to the peace process and
highlighted the spirit of coopera-
tion existing between the U.S.
and the Israeli delegations,"
Shamir said.
that we made progress in clarify-
ing some of these issues and in
developing a possibility of solu-
tions for some. There remain very
important differences in other
areas." He added:
"What we are seeking to do is,
in light of all the previous efforts,
to see if it is possible to close a
number of existing differences
which exist and in the light of
a previous question, I would like
to emphasize that there are still
far more differences than there
are agreements and there is still a
great deal of work to be done."
Haig also said: "What we are
after is the achievement of a suc-
cessful autonomy agreement in
principle. I believe that that is
achievable but it is going to take
a great deal of effort and time."

question, that he had raised the
issue of Soviet Jewish Prisoner of

tions although, ironically, it is a
field in which Jews play a great
role and have been prominent
ever since a German Jew, Paul
Julius Reuter, founded the great
British agency which still bears
his .name. It is only comparative-
ly recently that the American
Jewish press has been recognized
as a force in the community.
As a member of the JTA Board
for more than 30 years, Slomovitz
had a major role in educating the
American Jewish leadership to an
appreciation of the American
Jewish press. As a founder of the
American Jewish Press Associa-
tion and by his own example with
the Detroit Jewish Newa, Slomo-
vitz haa done yeoman work in
creating American Jewish press
standards. It is fitting that Bar-
Han University, in setting up a
chair of communications as the
start of a program in journalism,
should name it after Slomovitz.
What is the role of the Ameri-
can Jewish newspaperman?
Slomovitz answers this question
in a footnote to one of the
columns reprinted in the collec-
tion in words that literally
describe the doyen of American
Jewish journalism:
'The Jewish newspaperman
must view himself as the histor-
ian of his time. He is the fact-
finder whose duty it is to speak
the truth and experience of this
challenging period in history to
Jews and to non-Jews as well.
His efforts are the surest way to
bring about the good-will and
human decency for which
civilized man aspires."

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea
upon the dry ground; and the waters were a wall unto them on S
their right hand, and on their left" S
(Exodus 14:22).
BESHALAH Fearful of the hostile tribes the Israelites might.
encounter on the direct route to Canaan through the land of the.
Philistines, God sent the newly freed slaves bv way of the desert:
near the Red Sea. As they journeyed they were guided by a pillar
of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. The Israelites had
k-ft Egypt presumably to worship their God in the desert. When
Pharaoh learned that the children of Israel would not return to j
Egypt, he pursued them to the banks of the Red Sea at the head j
of an army of chosen troops. But a miracle occurred: the children
of Israel were able to pass between the waves of the Red Sea that
divided before them and stood upright like columns. The Egypt-
ian hosts, plunging into the Red Sea after them, were all drown-
ed. At this sight, the children of Israel sang a song of praise to
God. On their journey through the desert the children of Israel
were sustained by manna from heaven: water issued from a rock
for them at the bidding of God. The Amalekites did battle with
Ihe Israelites, but were defeated by Joshua the son of Nun, and
his men.
