producer, to make Golda. Gor-
man, no stranger to Israel, has
already produced three pictures
here. Indeed, his contribution to
the Israeli film industry has been
so great that he was honored with
a special award by the Israeli
Film Industry and the govern-
ment, the first non-Israeli to be'
so honored.
It was Gorman who first pro-
posed to Ingrid Bergman that
she play the role of Golda. And
that was no easy task. Gorman
happened to be in Israel, check-
ing out the background for the
film, when he discovered that
Bergman was making a private
visit to the country.
After numerous phone conver-
sations and several meetings, she
finally agreed to read the script.
Bergman was reluctant to come
out of retirement even more so
to play the role of a character
whose image was still so fresh in
the minds of people.
Eventually Bergman agreed to
a screen test "so that she
could prove she couldn't do it,"
says Corman. She sat quietly
throughout the screening of the
test, and at the end turned to him
and said: "Do you still want
THE MOVIE also features in-
ternationally-known Australian
actor Jack Thomspon {Breaker
Morant), who plays Golda's inti-
mate friend and confidant Ariel,
and Judy Davis [My Brilliant
Career) who plays a younger ver-
sion of Golda. Leonard Nimoy, of
Star Trek fame, plays Golda's
husband, Morris Meyerson. And
70 Israeli actors appear in sup-
porting roles.
Golda lias been shot all over
Israel. Her kibbutz, Merhavia,
was recreated in the grounds of
the agricultural school Bin She-
men. Wherever possible, Corman
has tried to stage historical
events where they actually took
For one scene, 160 Anglo-
Saxon new immigrants in the 40
to 60 age range were recruited
to play the audience of one of
Golda's fund-raising dinners in
New York.
"We wanted the audience to
look authentic," says Corman,
"so we brought them in just for
the scene. They were delighted,
visibly moved and applauded her
speech enthusiastically. But it's
difficult to know if it was really
Golda's speech, or Ingrid's de-
livery that did ft."
FOR CORMAN, Golda holds a
very distinct meaning, which he
hopes to convey in the film.
"Golda," he explains, "was a
very human person. The film
strives to show that at the time
she was called to serve her coun-
try as prime minister she was ill
and yet her dedication to duty
helped her to overcome her great
"The film shows she would
have been a leader in whatever

Government officials are
taken aback by Israeli
Premier Menachem Begin's
angry personal attack last
week on Chancellor Helmut
Government sources ex-
pressed surprise at the in-
cident, coming after
months of efforts to im-
prove relations between
Bonn and Jerusalem which
were seriously strained
when Begin attacked Sch-
midt as a Nazi last June.
According to radio and tele-
vision commentators, the latest
blast by the Israeli Premier only
served to arouse public support
for Schmidt who has been under
attack by opposition spokesmen
in the Bundestag recently for his
alleged pro-Nazi activities during
World War II.
on the basis of an Israeli newspa-
per report which quoted the
German Chancellor as saying he
would not make his long post-
poned trip to Israel until he re-
ceived an apology for Begins re-
marks last year. Government
spokesman Kurt Becker officially
denied that Schmidt had set such
a condition for his visit.
Begin seized on the report to
exhort Schmidt to "go down on
his knees and ask forgiveness of
, the Jewish people for what
' his countrymen perpetrated
under the National Socialist
regime against my people." He
said he would never apologize to
Schmidt "privately or publicly."
Last June, during Begin s re-
election campaign, he accused
Schmidt of remaining loyal to
Hitler and of serving in the
(jerman army that helped wipe
out European Jewry. That attack
was prompted by remarks Sch-
midt made in support of the cre-
ation of a Palestinian state, while
visiting Saudi Arabia last spring.
SCHMIDT WAS attacked in
the Bundestag last Jan. 14 by
Helmut Kohl, leader of the
llavarian-based Christian So-
cialist Union, for having attended
the show trial of a group of senior
Germany army officers involved
in an unsuccessful attempt to kill
Hitler in 1944. According to
Kohl, his presence at the trial was
a clue to his political attitude at
the time.
But Begin's remarks went far
beyond the accusations which
have become commonplace in
West German politics. Most ob-
servers believe Begin has suc-
ceeded in promoting solidarity
with the Chancellor among West
Schmidt was first invited to
visit Israel in 1975 by the then-
Premier, Yitzhak Rabin. The
invitation was renewed by Begin
in 1977. At that time, Bonn
sources told reporters that the
Chancellor was holding back be-
cause he was critical of Israel's
policies and was trying to pro-
mote better German relations
with the Arab states.
1982 TJF/UJA Campaign
Aims For Increase Over 1981
The prospect of continuing
tension in the Middle East and an
unfavorable economic situation
at home served as the backdrop
last week for a campaign leader-
ship breakfast where the progress
of the 1982 Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign was analyzed.
Addressing themselves to the
correlation between the growing
demand for services and the ob-
vious need for increased funding,
particular note was taken of
Federal budget cuts and their ad-
verse effect on Federation-UJA
beneficiary agencies. The group
also heard from Dr. Shalmi Bar-
more, historical director of Yad
Vashem, the Martyr-Memorial
Institute in Israel.
Joel Karpay, campaign vice
chairman, called attention to the
fact that the 1982 Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign had neared the
halfway mark with results that
are "encouraging." The total
amount in recorded pledges
stands at near $600,000. about
$165,000 ahead of last year's
achievement at this time. "While
this is definitely worthy of praise,
it could nevertheless leave the
community short of meeting ex-
ploding budgetary require-
ments," according to Karpay.
The Tampa community is
facing a critical situation which
demands that our fund-raising
efforts in the weeks ahead be
commensurate with actual needs,
and this can be accomplished in
only one way: 1982 contributions
still to be secured must reflect an
increase of at least 25 percent
over those made to last year's
The quality of Jewish life can
be improved by only the fullest
support of each individual, and
the time is here for all of us to
stand up and be counted.
Gong. Lantos to Keynote Campaign
George Karpay, chairman of the 1982 Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish Appeal Campaign, has an-
nounced that the keynote speaker for the annual campaign
dinner will be Congressman Tom Lantos (D., Calif.).

JNF Turning the Negev into a Garden
Receptions were held in Febru-
ary at the homes of Mr. and Mrs.
Morton Gould and Dr. and Mrs.
Kobert Goldstein, to welcome
Menachem Perlmutter, "The Ar-
chitect of the Negev," to Tampa.
Perlmutter is director of
engineering for the Negev and
Sinai in the Jewish Agency's
settlements department, a post
he has held since 1975. "The JNF

A native of Czechoslovakia.
Perlmutter survived the last year
of World War II at Auschwitz
Then 16 years old, he escaped in
January 1945 with his brother
and a friend in the chaos of the
Nazi evacuation and returned to
his hometown, Kosics, to find
only 12 of the 19,000 Jews who
lived there before the war. He
completed his secondary school-
ing and started an engineering
course when, in 1947 he decidec

After demobilization from the
Israel Defence Forces in 1951,
Perlmutter began his unbroken
affair with the Negev as a land
surveyor for a Tel Aviv engineer-
ing firm. Two years before he
married in 1955, he was ap-
pointed director of land surveys
in the Jewish Agency's set-
tlements department and in 1967
moved up to become coordinator
of physical planning.
Perlmutter explained the phi-
losophy of the Settlement Pro-
gram. 'Empty places invite un-
tnendly activities," he said. Only
3.500 people live in the area from
the Dead Sea to the Red Sea. By
building settlements, Israel
stakes its claim to the land. The
Settlement Agency is overseeing
the dismantling of the Sinai de-
velopments ... a provision of the
Camp David Agreement. At the
same time, it is building for the
future. This is one of the aims of
the Settlement Program
Another aim of the Settlement
Program is the development of
the economy and agriculture.
Perlmutter commented. "As a
Jew who lives here. I say this is
one of the most progressive eco-
nomic sectors in the world, in
spite of water problems,
locations, etc. Avocados,
oranges, flowers, winter vege-
tables grow here." Agriculture
production has increased 40 per-
cent in the last 15 years due to
efficiency of irrigation: but more
water sources must be created.
The third aim of the Settle-
ment Program is social. "This is
the essence of why we returned to
the country ... to put down
roots." said Perlmutter. He

daughter-in-law and granddaughter visit her for a few days from
Pittsburgh. Joyce and Pamela Galpern visited their mother-in-
law and grandmother at the Jewish Towers where Rae resides
and then they all vacationed together in Sarasota for a few days.
Joyce is the director of the Jewish Committee of Western
Pennsylvania. She is a Smith graduate, a Wilson Scholarship
graduate, and earned her masters and Ph.D. at Berkeley in
California. She was an assistant professor at Carnegie Melon in
Pittsburgh, for two years. Pam recently celebrated her Bas
Mitzvah. We know that you all must have had a wonderful time
The Jewish Towers had a smashing Valentine's party, held
on Sunday evening, Feb. 14. This affair was a real hit with all of
the residents who attended. The chairman for this event was
Kay Seara, and her hard working committee included Helen
Adams. Marion Pullara, Amanda DeJesus, and Gregario
DeJesus. There was dancing to a live band "The Treble Clefs,"
and delicious refreshments. Resident. Barney Libbins, even
accompanied the band during the evening. In addition, the
firemen who did such a wonderful job in helping all of the Jewish
Towers residents (and taking care of the building at the same
time) in last year's fire were invited to attend this party at which
time they were honored for their quick and capable action. It
was a marvelous evening in the words of one of the residents
one of the best parties we have ever had here.
Patti Morgenstern. vice president of community relations
for the evening chapter of ORT, informs us of a heart-warming
new program that ORT is initiating this month. This innovative
program is called "Adopt a Grandparent." Those ORT members
who are participating will be working with a number of Jewish
Towers residents who are especially lonely because they do not
have any family in the Tampa area. Each interested ORTist is
assigned a grandparent to adopt (so to speak). They can do as
little as just send their 'grandparents" cards for special occa-
sions and phoning them every so often or as much as having
them in their home for frequent dinners and family celebrations.
These lovely elderly people are looking for new friendships, and
oh so much can be gained for you and your children by putting
out your hand and taking the first step towards adopting a
grandparent. So all interested ORTists contact Patti today -
Congregation Schaarai Zedek reports that their Chavurah
Happenings are really happening! The Temple's various
Chavurah groups are all busy and active and have had a number
of fun and productive get-togethers over the last few weeks:
First, representatives from each of the groups met at the home
of Sis and Don Saltzman to discuss naming groups, rosters, pro-
ceedings, resources, and possible future coordinated activities
such as a joint dinner meeting. Those present included Alan and
Beth Socol, Ben and Elizabeth Roeenthal, Vi Malevan, and
Judith Pressman.
Recent meetings included a Chanukah party for the inter-
marrieds at the home of Mel and Lynn McDonald. Hatikva
Chavurah enjoyed a lively evening, full of discussion at the
home of Gloria and Arnold Barr. Topics included Rabbi
Malino's recent sermon on rabbis speaking out on secular con-
cerns. During December, the Shabbat Chavurah group enjoyed
a Chanukah dinner at the home of Rhoda Franklin. After the
delicious meal, 11 members and guests took part in a discussion
centered around the theme of the woman's role in the Jewish
community. Group III met recently at the home of Lillian
Zanger. Those present shared thoughts on Kashrut and the
various Mitzvot dictating them. This meeting was followed by
another get-together at the home of Martha and Sam Mandlow
where the topic of Mitzvot was continued, and plans were made
for the next meeting to be held at the home of Arthur and
Marilyn Winters.
We are always so thrilled to hear about the activities of your
organizations won't you let us know?
Ellen Piernick, the Kadima youth advisor for Congregation

Federation Board Urges Sales Tax
Increase at Its Feb. 17 Meeting
The Hoard of Directors of the
Tampa Jewish Federation at its
Feb. 17 meeting passed a resolu-
tion urging the Florida House of
Representatives and the Florida
Senate to adopt a 1 percent in-
crease in the Florida's state sales
tax to provide needed dollars for
human services.
The motion was introduced by
M. William Saul, TJF represen-
tative to the Florida Association
of Jewish Federations Govern-
ment Affairs Committee. The
Government Affairs Committee
is made up of representatives of
the nine Federations throughout I
Florida who employ a full time
lobbyist in Tallahassee on behalf
of Federations.
Elaine Bloom, Government
Affairs director for the associa-
tion recently stated, "Our service
agencies, developed long before
the advent of government
support, have now enlarged
many of their programs, which
are extremely cost-effective and
preventative, in order to save
Public and voluntary contribu-
tions from having to be used for
costlier long term, terminal or
rehabilitative care.
"NoWi we find some of our
nnest programs in serious
eopardy, such as those main-
taining elderly people in their
own homes, or those caring for
iruiunn whose parents need to
wotk, or those training people for
entry-level jobs."

The Tampa Jewish Federation
urges the legislature to:
1. Utilize the State's reserve
fund as needed to maintain 1981-

2. Replace the lost federal dol-
lars with other state or federal
monies in order to continue unin-
terrupted services to needy
clients of voluntary sector
3. Increase Florida's state sales
tax by 1 percent in order to pro-
vide the extra dollars needed for
human services and other essen-
tial government programs in the

Our Elderly Need Care
There is no doubt that the Florida State Legisla-
ture has a monumental amount of business to do in a
session just about half over. Judging by the pace of
the first half, some observers are already predicting a
special session at the Legislature's official close.
At a time when so many adult care centers for
the elderly throughout Florida and the nation are
under attack for the low credentials of their facilities
The CCE Act, passed in 1976. authorized the
funding of seven demonstration projects throughout
Community Care programs offer supportive
services such as day care, transportation, home
health care, respite care, and hot meals to frail,
elderly people living among us. Since it was insti-
tuted, the program has achieved its objectives of
enabling this high-risk population to remain at home
instead of in higher cost facilities.
Sephardim Say They've Lost God,
Given Socialist 'Fraud' Instead
RAM AT GAN (ZINS) Emotions ran high at a
stormy symposium held here devoted to the relations be-
tween Israel's Sephardic and Ashkenazic communities.
Dr. Gabriel Ben Simchon. an immigrant from Morocco,
gave expression to the deep feelings of frustration felt by
his community.
"When we made our aliyah to Israel," said Dr. Ben
Simchon. "we lost our religious faith and our Father. On
arriving here we were dressed in khaki. In place of reli-
gious tradition we were given socialism, which has proven
to be a huge fraud. In the end we were left without God
and without socialism. We have abandoned the
traditional Moroccan wedding ceremony: instead we have
received a culture of synthetic plastic. The spokesman
added a further protest against Israel's TV which he said
is monopolized by the Ashkenazim."
SOCIOLOGIST Dr. Yonatan Perres spoke in a more
optimistic vein. He pointed out that 20 percent of native
births are now the offspring of so-called "mixed mar-
riagi There will come a time, "said Dr. Perres. "when
there will be a harmonious and compatible Israeli
society." He r.ointed to the fact that the percentage of
divorces among mixed couples' is very low .
Joining the discussion, newsman Shmuel Segev. also
a Jew of Oriental origin, said that the Sephardim have to
tember that although they may comprise a majority
within the State of Israel, the' ill a minority within
the Jewish people.

Kmbassy. came face-to-face with
the ugly side of world reality
when a member of the Embassy
staff called one of the teen-agers a
"dirty Jew."
The youngsters were in Wash
ington to attend a B'nai B'riih
Youth Organization (BBYO)
executive board meeting and
briefings by Congressional and
State Department officials. They
braved a heavy rainstorm to par-
ticipate in the demonstration for
Soviet Jewry. In a spur-of-the-
moment display of emotion, the
teen-agers formed a circle, sang
OOCi and chanted slogans
calling for the release of Jewish
refuseniks by the Soviet L'nion
WHEN EMBASSY personnel
began leaving the building for
lunch. Andy Shavel of Buffalo
ran over to hand out leaflets. As
he approached them, one of the
Russians called out. "Watch
yourself, you dirty Jew."
Shavel, a high school junior,
was stunned for a moment 1
tried to reason with him." he said
later "I asked, what had our
people ever done to hurt you?' '
Shavel said that man responded
by "yelling at me in Russian." As
he got into his car. he stuck his
tongue out at me." the teen-ager
added. "1 never expected that
from a diplomat."
ACTORS at their best have the
unique capacity to become some-
one else given the right dramatic
circumstances lights, a stage.
a theater audience. Above all. an
inspiring script involving
believable human qualities such
as mythic visceral conflict and
characters who are recognizable
and real
That is why. at their best, ac-
tors are generally empty human
beings devoid of distinctive
qualities of them* own. They are
like empty vessels waiting to be
filled by some playwright genius
who knows how to fill them.
THERE IS a symbiotic rela-
tionship between the playwright
and the actor for this reason.
Each needs the other to live in
their make-believe world. Oth-
erwise, both are dead. Or else,
deadly boring. This explains why
the really great performers so
often lead sad and lonely lives.
They have no genuine personality
of their own off-stage, and their
desperate hunt for the non-
existent in themselves off-stage

Examples of such great per-
formers abound. Alec Guinness is
one Peter Sellers was another.
There also come to mind Ralph
Richardson. Laurence Olivier.
Ilette Davis. Buster Keaton.
l-aurel and Hardy. Greta Garbo.
Of course, there are exceptions
among actors who were as bril-
liant and exciting off-stage as on.
but they are a minority. The tales
are legendary of the stars who
put parties to sleep with their
halting presence and who
couldn't wait to get away because
they had nothing to say and
simply wanted to go back to the
hiding places where they lived
their desperate, private lives.
ALL OF THIS comes to mind
now because of the Ed Asner
flap, the Screen Actors Guild
president who has pledged
$25,000 in medical assistance to
Central American revo-
lutionaries. I am frank to say-
that the news of his pledge of-

to entertain us. momentarily to
fill our own mundane lives with
his unique talent, and therefore
he forfeits his rich reward.
Second, and more important,
the hero, in violating his priestly
duties by violating our domain
with his presence in it. subjects
us to the mediocrity and even
Ixiredom in him that marks so
many of our own lives, and from
which we attempt to escape in
our flight to the theater. He
shows himself to us as no longer
magical. He compounds our
frustrations with the burden of
having to bear his frustrations,
as well. The grease paint, the illu-
sions of the theater are unsexed.
He deprives us of our escape
hatch from the anguish of reality.
Eor in no way is. say an Ed
Asner. more uniquely qualified to
make comment on the coo-
temporary political scene than
anv of us is. In fact, he is less so.
This is because his unique talent
as a stage performer has trained
him mistakenly to see our drab,
daily, unmythic reality as a stage
also, and the consequence is that
he is unprepared to assess or deal
with the drab, daily, unmythic
quality of our lives off-stage in an
intelligent way.
IN THE END. the Ed Asners
not only betray themselves and
us. Because they confuse the
stage with the world, tbey there-
fore approach the world in a
dangerously romanticized and
sentimental way. Their percep-
tions are askew, and yet we are
asked to give them credence be-
cause they are the perceptions of
our heroes even if in another
This explains why the ac-
tivities of. say. Joan Baez and
Jane Fonda were so cruelly sus-
pect in the Vietnam era. It also
explains the Reagan Ad-
ministration's chillingly per-
ceptive and self-damning reaction
to the news about Ed Asner
that actors have no business in
Remember George Murphy,
the movie hoofer who made it to
the United States Senate from
California? Murphy's tenure on
Capitol Hill was a monument to
ineptitude and a quiet disgrace.
Surely, the Reagan crew's com-
ment about Asner should have
said something to them about the
President himself, although that
is a doubtful hope. Largely, the
men surrounding Mr. Reagan are
uneducated except in matters of
money, and so their sense of the
absurd has never been conceived

The motivation of Americans
to place their heroes in high poli-
tical office is often a disaster for
all the reasons enumerated here.
But it says something about
Americans, as well their in
stinctive awareness that politics

m the legalization of human
oppression and those who vote
for actors, football-players or as-
tronauts are merely hoping to
translate this filth, this oppres-
sion into a statement on a stage
in the theater of the absurd.
Mr. Reagan, the other day, did
just that for those who pulled the
GOB lever last time out. In
launching his "new crusade" to
"wield a popular majority from
one end of this country to the
other." the President declared:
"We must reach out and appal
to the patriotic and fundamental
ideals of average Americans who
do not consider themselves
movement' people."
WHAT IN blazes did the
President think his "new cru-
sade" is not a movement?
Does he not ask us to join his
movement in order to make a
declaration of war against move-
ments? Or is "movement" his
new code word for those who op-
pose his New Federalism, and are
these the people Americans are
meant to destroy in an ultimate

Letter to the Editor
F.DITOR, The.lewish Fkmdian:
In every part of the world,
Jews are feeling the effects of
hostility and hatred that, open or
cloaked, is increasing almost day
l)_v day. Israel, despite its break-
through with Kgypt, is menaced
l>> liHigerent Arab neighbors,
threatened by the global activi-
ties of the murderous FLO, as-
saulted by the manipulative use
of petrodollars, and menaced on
all Ironts by political maneuver-
ing and conniving. In France and
throughout Latin America, the
danger to Jewish communities is
on the upswing und even here
in the U.S. anti-Semitism is
mounting steadily in intensity.
Thus, the global ORT network
assumes a further dimension of
significance. In an era of severe
economic instability, heightened
social tension, cultural break-
down und spiritual chaos, the
OUT network which has given
more than two million Jews the
modern skills that have meant
livelihood and, at times, even life
becomes an even greater
source of strength and more pow-
erful means of survival for Jews
all over the world. Everywhere
that an OUT program exists,
there exists an added reservoir of
encouragement, strength, in-
spiration, knowledge and
As OUT continues its second
century of operation as the tech-
nical und vocational education
program of the Jewish people, we
siilute the members of Women's
American ORT in Tampa Bay
Region who are now launching
their 1982 Spring Membership
Campaign. We are well aware
that new, greater membership for
Women's American ORT trans-
lates itself into building ORT in-
stitutions in Israel and through-
out the world and in the promo-
tion of quality public education
here in the United States.
We urge our community to
Mip|->ri the vital work of Wom-
en's American ORT, an organiza-

cence of the Jewish people.

Sharon Mock, President
Ed Finkelstein, Executive Director
Linda Davis. Editor
My President's Message does not normally deal with politics,
affairs of state or other non Tampa JCC issues, but this month I
f>l I must deviate from the norm. We are currently witnessing
in this country a very orchestrated campaign to isolate Israel as
never witnessed before and one which can become more
devastating than war itself. United Nations actions now as in
the past against Israel have become an unfortunate recognized
way of life: however, an America which has supported its only
longtime friend in the Middle East is now talking out of both
sides of its mouth by providing major economic and military aid
to Israel's and America's long time enemies and detractors.
These so called moderate Arab Nations which have not even
supported in concept the Camp David Accords are receiving or
planning to receive massive economic and military aid. Why?
What can we in Tampa do about it?
Of course, we can and should write to our President, Senators
and Congressmen. We could march in the streets and send
letters to the editor of the Tribune, but most of all we must show
our support of the United Jewish Appeal through our Tampa
Jewish Federation. Through our dollars not only do we support
| our local community as well as Israel, but we send a loud
message to Washington that we are Jewish Americans who will
not waiver in support of our Jewish homeland.
The days ahead will be difficult ones for Jews the World over.
We must show our strength now more than ever. Vote today,
make your Federation pledge.

Federation Women to Sponsor
'Washington Experience'
In 1982 and beyond, many cri-
tical issues of deep concern to the
Jewish community both here
in America and overseas will
be affected by events in Wash-
ington, D.C.
With this in mind, the First
Ladies Division of the Tampa
Jewish Federation is sponsoring
a "Washington Experience" that
will take place on Apr. 1.
According to Blossom Lei-
bowitz, chairman of the First
Ladies Division, "The 'Washing-
ton Experience' is based on the
premise that Jewish leaders who
understand what makes our gov-
ernment work, and who under-
stand the top level decision
making process will feel closer to
that process. This can only lead
to greater commitment, both to
the Jewish people and the Ameri-
can political system."

perience" program, contact the

Leading Cantor Sholom Katz
Passes Away at Walter Reed
Funeral services were held here
for Sholom Katz, a leading cantor
in this country and an authority
on Jewish music. He died last
Saturday at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center after a heart
attack. He was 67 years old.
Katz, who was born in Ruma-
nia, was a recognized cantor by
the time of his Bar Mltzvah.
He was ordained a rabbi at the
age of 18 and was chief cantor of
Bucharest before he came to the
United States after World War
During the war he was cap-
tured by the Nazis and impris-
oned in a concentration camp. He
said in later years that when he
was forced to dig his own grave in
the camp he asked the guard to
allow him to sing. He sang the
traditional HI Molei Kachamin
which so moved the guard that he
allowed Katz to escape.
Katz was the cantor at Beth
Sholom Congregation from 1947
to 1957. At the same time, he al-
ternated with the late Cantor
Moshe Kussevitsky at the Ru-
manian Synagogue in New York
City's l^ower East Side. He ap-
peared in concert halls and syna-
gogues in this country, Europe,
South America, Canada and Is-
rael. He was the first cantor in-
vited to give a series of concerts

Misha Raitzin
With Jack Golly Orchestra
March 14,1982 7:30 p.m.
Misha Raitzin
metropolitan opera tenor
One of the greatest voices to come out of Russia is that of Misha Raitzin,
who is truly "The Voice of His People.-' Born in the Ukraine, he studied
music at the Moscow Conservatory from where he graduated with honors.
Misha performed as a Principal Tenor with Russia's most prestigious opera
companies such as Leningrad and the world famous Bolshoi in Moscow, as
well as being guest soloist with the leading symphony orchestras including
the Moscow Philharmonic. He toured the broad expanses of the Soviet
Union as well as the cultural capitals of the world .. London. Paris, Berlin,
Moscow, Prague, Budapest, Peking... all to great critical acclaim.
In pursuit of artistic and religious freedom, Misha left Russia and a suc-
cessful operatic career to emigrate to Israel with his family. Here he was
warmly welcomed as a principal soloist with the Tel Aviv Opera and the
Israel Philharmonic under the baton of Zubin Mehta.
For the Tampa community which supports a Russian Resettlement
program, this is an opportunity to share in an experience made possible by
communities such as ours.
Invited to concertize in the United States, Misha made his successful
debut at Town Hall. This was immediately followed by his engagement with
the Metropolitan Opera where he made his distinguished debut as the false
Dmitri in "Boris Godunov." He has also sung the leading tenor roles at the
Met in "Le Traviata". "Un Ballo in Maschera", as well as a world-wide
broadcast of "La Gioconda". He is now in his sixth consecutive season as a
principal tenor with the Metropolitan Opera, and the only Israeli citizen on
its roster.
In addition to Misha Raitzins' busy schedule with opera company and
symphony orchestras throughout the world, he is also concertizing in the
United States and abroad. It is in just this context, performing the songs of
his people, that Misha Raitzin finds his deepest gratification.
Misha returns to his home in Israel at least three or four times a year to
visit with his brothers, sister and their families all of whom now live in Tel
Aviv, having left Russia just after Misha's emigration.
Since his arrival in the United States. Misha has performed the cantorial
liturgy during the High Holy Days at the Sutton Place Synagogue in New
York City, and is presently officiating as the Cantor at Grossinger's Hotel.
