Urgent Appeal for Cash Issued in Israel's Time of Great Crisis'
Wers of the Tampa Jewish
ation have issued an urgent

tsed pledges in response to
Jrrent struggle of the people

to provide funds for hu-
krian and educational pro-
1 while Israel faces heavy
economic and military expendi-
tures during the current Middle
East crisis. Tampa has previous-
ly forwarded $150,000 in cash.
Similar cash mobilization
drives are being conducted by
Jewish communities throughout
the country. All seek maximum
transmittal of cash to the Jewish
Agency, and completion of the
1982 campaign at the highest
achievable level, both to be ac-
complished in the shortest possi-
ble period of time.
UJA officials said that a com-
munity-wide effort is necessary
to bring outstanding pledges to a
"paid in full" status. "It is im-
perative that our community
rally to the cause of the people of
Israel at this time of great crisis,
and help them recover from the
economic hardships accompany-
ing the current conflict, and the
additional needs it is generating
for the Jewish Agency," they
Pointing to what they called
"Israel's new economic realities,
Tampa Jewish Federation leaders
cited examples of the effects of
inflation. Among these: bread,
milk, oil and meat prices have
risen 2.7 percent; cigarette prices
are up 19 percent. They also
noted that building throughout
Israel has come to a virtual
standstill due to the lack of
laborers, construction machinery
and trucks, all of which have been
"It is clear," they said, "that
only the strongest and most
sincere effort on our part will in-
dicate to the people of Israel that
we are with them at this critical
juncture in their history. We urge
all members of our community to
share in this common effort."

An interview with
Anthony Lewis in the Long
Island Jewish World of
May 14 and 20 and a report
in The Jewish Floridian of
June 4 point up to one of
the disturbing paradoxes of
Jewish attitudes to critics
of Israel. After an extended
visit to Israel in March,
Lewis concluded that the
Israel Government's de
facto annexation of the
West Bank "will be fatal to
For expounding his views,
which are ahared by many Is-
raelis, Lewis is regarded in the
world of Jewish orgnaizations as
a self-hating Jew and an enemy of
The paradox is this. In April,
those who thought that the final
withdrawal from Sinai would be
harmful to Israel took full page
ads in Jewish papers opposing
the Israel Government's policy of
being self-hating Jews or enemies
of Israel.
Why this double standard?
LIKE LEWIS, I have just re-
turned from a month in Israel
visiting my American-born chil-
dren and sabra grandchildren. It
was a month of spring beauty;
the fields were blanketed with
blood-red poppies and blue and
yellow wild flowers. It was a
month of trauma tears over
the senseless destruction of
Yamit, riots, deaths destruction
of Yamit, riots, deaths and civil
disobedience on the West Bank.
American olim, with whom I
lived for a month, was almost un-
bearable. Was it for this that
they had left comfortable homes
in the States? My elder daughter,
who has lived in Israel for many
years, spoke for all her American
friends. She said:
"I left the States because my
government was taking actions
in Vietnam and elsewehre which
shamed me, but I felt helpless to
do anything about it. Now I feel
the same way about my govern-
ment in Jerusalem. They are do-
ing things in the West Bank that
shame me, and I feel helpless to
do anything about it."
SIMILAR CRIES of anguish
were published in the Letters
column of The Jerusalem Post
during my month in Israel.
Typical was the letter by a former
American, Gillian Hirsh of Kib-
butz Nahshon. She wrote: "I was
proud to be an Israeli. Today I
am ashamed How can I give
my children pride in a nation
i which is following therepressive
and cruel path of all conquerors?"
I was troubled, of course, by
these statements, but at the same

Honors to Davidson and Tobin
The Bob Jacobson Award, an-

making the most significant con-
tribution to the Jewish Com-
munity Center as determined by
the president, this year went to
Leah Davidson.
Davidson was one of the J'" j
New Leadership Award winners
for 1982 and she received this
award at the JWB Convention in
May in Chicago. She has been on
the JCC Board for the past three
years, this past year as vice
president of Ways and Means.
Her committee involvement has
included the Early Childhood
Committee, Israel Independence
Day Committee and several past

TOP Jewish
Annual Meeting
On June 17, 1982, the T.O.P.
Jewish Foundation held its
second quarterly meeting at
Bentley's Restaurant in Clearwa-
ter. Among the things on the
agenda, a special presentation
was made to Mark Cohen of
Cohen, a principal in the ad-
vertising and marketing firm
C.C.M. (Corporate Communica-
tions and Marketing), was pre-
sented with a metal sculpture
spelling out the word "Shalom"
in Hebrew letters. The inscription
on the sculpture read "Presented
to Mark Cohen by TOP. Jewish
Foundation for his contribution
to the future of Jewish life."
It was learned that Cohen
helped design the logo and the
layout work on the Foundation's
promotional brochure which has
won acclaim from other federa-
tions operating endowment pro-
grams. In addition, Cohen con-
sulted with the Foundation's
Executive Director on an advert-
ising series that appeared in
Orlando; and. more recently,
helped design and layout the
Foundation's newsletter ON
"Mark is a very creative and
unassuming individual," stated
Joel Breitstein, the Foundation's
Executive Director. "General
promotion and marketing of the
endowment concept is very im-
portant to the long range success
of the endowment program in
Tampa, Orlando and Pinellas
Counties. Because the concept of
combining two or more federa-
tions for the purpose of operating
an endowment program for each
federation is unique, we needed a
creative approach to the general
marketing of the endowment
concept. We believe this has been
helped in a large measure due to
Mark's creative talent."
In other Foundation business,
it was learned that grants from
endowment monies total in
excess of $85,000; while gifts,
either new funds or additions to
existing funds, are in excess of
$250,000' for 1982. The Found-
ation Distribution Committee
adopted "Policy and Procedure
for Grants and Allocations,"
which will be reviewed by each
federation in the coming months.
The next quarterly meeting i
scheduled for September 30,
Tobin as the person whose serv-
ice to the JCC was the most out-
standing and therefore deserving
of this accolade.
Tobin, a member of the JCC
Board, was chairman of the
health and physical education
committee and chairman of the
Israel Fly Away Raffle. He, also,
was a JWB New Leadership
award winner this past spring.
During the coming year, Tobin
will be vice president of the JCC
in charge of Ways and Means.

1.800 people giving to Federation

of communication. To build a

Fnday. Ju|y,
Tampa Jewish Federation
President's Massage
As I reflect upon the peat two
years of my terms as Tampa
Jewish Federation President, I
am compelled to relate to you, the
community, how fortunate we are
in Tampa to have volunteers and
staff who truly care.
I can recreate specifiv inci-1
dents in my mind that were per-
sonally challenging and at times
frustrating to all of those dedi-
cated people involved.
Process and democracy do not
come readily in a non-profit
charitable organization. Each in-
dividual comes to a board meet-
ing, a committee meeting with
personal priorities, strengths and
We are blessed to have so
many people who feel the need to
help others who are less fortunate
"There but for the grace of
God and I."
The incredible amount of effort
put forth to maximize the
strengths of all of the volunteers
involved is part of a process that
only a modern day Federation
could handleand that in fact we
have becomes modern, efficient
and responsible body in a vibrant
and growing Jewish community.
As President. I've been keenly
aware of the needs of the Jewish
community locally and abroad
We have set a priority to reach
out to all areas of Tampa and to
all of the newcomers to our com-
munity. It is the responsibility of
Tampa Jewish Federation to act
as the umbrella organization for
all of the agencies as well as to
collect funds for the agencies
locally and abroad. This is not an
easy task by any means. But, I
fell strongly that Federation is
making great strides to accom-
plish these goals. We've worked
very hard in the past two years to
assure that the process is a fiar
one. Re-evaluation of present
programs and past programs has
enabled us to make the best deci-
sions. Through the guidance of
qualified and hard working staff
as well as volunteers, the
organization has been able to
clearly define its objectives. I feel
good about the Tampa Jewish
Federation and am very proud to
have been able to serve as Presi-
As a volunteer it has become
very evident that this is truly a
time of test in a fast-growing
society, the volunteer of today is
not just filling time there are
too many things to do for that
who we have emerging are people
who care who spend their
leisure time in pursuit of happi-
ness for others.
I would like to thank each of
you in the community who do
care and hope that you will share
your feelings with another who
may not know the joy and fulfill-
ment of being needed.
It is a challenging time for all
Jews. If we are to remain a uni-
fied People on this earth, we will
have to work at that goal to-
"It was the best of times, it
was the worst of times, it was the
age of wisdom. it was the
spring of hope."

Message from Hillel

Into our second decade Hil-

the Tampa Jewish Community,
and we are proud to join the en-

from Pinellas County. Carroll-

In addition to georgraphic dis-
tribution, Hillel students repre-

munity as well. Fifty-nine per-

Hillel graduates attend noted

high schools in the Tampa area.
Our first graduates will be
seniors in colleges and univer-
sities during the 1982-83 school

Jewish youth groups at their in-
This has been an exciting year

participated in math meets,
spelling bees, a science fair and
produced a literary journal. Hillel
Chai-lites, and the 5th yearbook.
Each holiday was celebrated by
the school, and each class partici-
pated in Shabbatonim with
family and friends.
Hillel has outgrown the facili-
ties we now occupy. Students
have classes in the library and
chapel. Office, storage space and
Physical Education facilities are
limited. Hillel graduates are the
future of the Jewish Community.
To continue preparing for the fu-
ture, Hillel and the community
must plan today.
I would like to thank the 1981-
82 Hillel Board for their dedica-
tion to the future planning of the
school. Their concern and com-
mitment have been evident
throughout the year. The ideas
they have proposed, with the zeal
and professionalism shown by
our faculty and staff, have made
this year a success.
Thanks to all for your support.

A lot done but so much
more to do that's what's been
happening at the Center.
Physically, desperately needed
capital improvements and repairs
were begun and finished. The
pool war remarsited, the pump
house rebuilt and the tennis
courts resurfaced and, after a
decade of neglect, we finally put
in a sprinkling system and re-
sodded the pool area. Expensive,
but well worth it.
The Center use has increased
use has increased substantially,
and our summer Thursday night
Bar-B-Que at the pool is off to a
promising start.
Programmatically, our long
awaited North-end pre-school be-
came a reality. Forty bright-eyed,
bubbly children, not cranky after
what had been a long thirty
minute drive to the Center,
showed up last September at Kol
Ami Synagogue for the begin-
ning of the Center pre-school. The
result was exciting for the Center
as well as our "Kids." In addition
to being able to offer a quality
preschool for the children, we
were able to increase our mem-
l>ership and provide additional
programming for our north-end
It's been a year of outreach as
our singles group merged with
the Pinellas singles to form the
Tampa Bay Singles Coalition.
The Lunch Bunch held very suc-
cessful! gatherings in Temple
Terrace. Carrollwood, as well as
in the Interbay section. With the
cutbacks in Federal spending, we
anticipated major cutbacks in
those programs receiving Federal
monies, particularly those deal-
ing with our golden agers. How-
ever, with very careful planning a
tight hold on the budget, we've
been able to maintain status quo.
We're still providing the lunches,
trips and socials, but as the
Federal budget's shears cut
deeper, we may have to further
reorder our priorities and lose
some of our more meaningful
But, a look ahead our list
of things to do seems to get
longer instead of shorter. The
more we do, the more we need to
do. The Center needs a face lift.
more meeting rooms and offices,
more staff, a program director
and youth worker, a real camp
with woods to explore and a lake
to fish and canoe in. How about a
Jewish library and a health club?
We've had the largest increase in
our membership ever and to keep
those members and attract new
ones, we've got to continue to ex-
pand programs and services.
Thanking our hoard members
is one of the hardest things to do,
because they're all terrific. They
have worked hard in tough times,
sometimes under heavy pres-
sures. But no matter what we've
asked, they came through. Thank
you volunteers.
An equally hard task'is just
saying thank you to our profes-
sionals, people who put in long,
hard and tiring hours of work
that we don't see but make the
machine run smoothly. Without
you-going would be rougher. In
times of tight budgets, your un-
derstanding of our "tightened
belt" will not be forgotten. You
are super!
We're optimistic, our members
are terrific, imaginative, re-
sourceful, and dedicated. With all
this going for us, how can we

Tampa Jewish Social
Service Annual Report
vamped the space that >
rently being used, m^i
The past year has bean marked
by a multitude of changes for
i Tampa Jewish Social Service, in-
cluding changes in staff, changes
in committee structure, changes
in funding sources and changes in
Staff changes began with the
resignation of Christy Reddish,
the Soviet Jewish Resettlement
worker, who was moving to
North Florida and, in addition,
who was expecting a baby in
October. She was replaced by
Joel Brooks who joined the TJSS
staff in July. 1981. Then Harriet
Cohen, senior staff worker, re-
signed to move to Tennessee.
Robin King joined the staff in
December, 1981 as her replace-
ment. As part of a new grant
from United Way and increased
funding from Tampa Jewish
Federation. Lorraine Kushner
was hired as the Vocational Serv-
ices Coordinator in January 1982.
In addition. TJSS was one of the
agencies named as a field place-
ment site for the new Master So-
cial Work program at U.S.F.
Joyce Carpenter, our first MSW
siudent intern, joined the staff in
January'. '982 and will remain for
three semesters.
The committee structure was
also changed during the past
year. Because of the Long Range
Planning Committee's analysis of
future needs, two new ad hoc-
committees were added to the
committee structure: the Space
Committee formed to deal with
the Long Range (Manning's con-
tinued statement of the agency's
number one priority and need
since February 1980 that of
more space, and the Alternate Fi-
nancing Committee formed to
deal with growing financial
needs, dwindling sources of
federal funding and the need of
alternate money resources. The
task of evaluation was added to
the Long Range Planning Com-
mittee's duties. In addition, two
other committees were put on in-
active status: the Frail Elderly
and Family Life Education Com-
mittees, due to inactivity in these
project areas, change of respon-
sibility for these tasks, and-or no
new forseen policy developments
in these areas.
Tampa Jewish Social Service
also obtained funding resources
during the past year in addition
to its annual allocation from
Tampa Jewish Federation. A one-
time grant of $5,000 was made by
United Way to start a Vocational
Services program. United Way
had been impressed by the activi-
ties of the TJSS Industrial Em-
ployment Committee, now
chaired by Marshall Linsky, and
realized the increasing needs of
TJSS clients of all ages and
physical abilities and disabilities
to find sources of income to re-
place dwindling Federal monies
and-or to obtain jobs in difficu"
economic times. The Jewish
Towers, in recognition of the
many services rendered its
tenants by TJSS, agreed to pay
4,000 toward administrative
costs of these services. Improved
cash management policies
generated a better cash flow and
higher interest income for the
The biggest change in moat
people's minds was the decision
to move from our space on the
campus of the JCC. This decision
evolved over a period of time be-
ginning in February. 1980. At
that time the TJSS Long Range
Planning Committee met to de-
termine long term needs of the
gency. All were aware of the in-
creased crowding as new staff
was needed for expanded pro-
grams, and as office space in-
tended for four workers, was used
by ix or more workers plus accelerating pace

Reagan Asked to
Question Rumania
Twenty-two U.S. Senators have
called on the Reagan Adminis-
tration to engage in "serious and
intensive discussions'* with the
Rumanian government on the
decline in Rumanian Jewish emi-
gration in recent years and re-
ports of oppression suffered by
Christian groups in Rumania be-
fore the Administration recom-
mends to Congress renewal of
Most Favored Nation (MFN)
trade status to the East Europe-
an nation.
"We would be sending the
wrong signal, not only to Ruma-
nia* but to the countries of the
free world if the U.S. government
was to condone these actions and
not ask for any improvements in
Rumania's human rights policy
in return," said Sen. Alphonse
D'Amato (R., N.Y.) who initiated
the letter to President Reagan.
Segall Follows in Grandmother's Footsteps
The Jewish Floridian of Tampa prints biweekly during June,
July, and August. The next edition will be July 23. All material
for that issue must reach the Jewish Floridian office by Wednes-
day, July 14.
Following in the footsteps of
Kose Segall is not an easy task,
but Stephen Segall is doing just
that. Segall is the newly elected
president of the Tampa Jewish
Social Service and the grandson
of one of the founders of the
Kose Segall was the first presi-
dent of the agency which began
as a committee of volunteers
from Congregation Rodeph
Sholom. She continued in that
capacity until 1974 when the
Tampa Jewish Social Service be-
came a professional agency.
The new president is a native
Tampan and the son of Florence
and Albert Segall. He is a pro-
duct of the HilLsborough County
public school system, attending
Dale Mabry Elementary School,
Wilson Junior High School, and
Plant High School. He attended
Kmory University in Atlanta,
and graduated from the Univers-
ity of South Florida.
In 1968, when it was apparent
that he would be drafted, he
joined the U.S. Army. He trained
ai Officer's Candidate School at
Fort Belvoir, Virginia, graduat-
ing as a second lieutenant in the
transportation corps. He spent a
year in Vietnam as an advisor to
the Vietnamese.
After his discharge from the
service he did graduate work in
biology, receiving a Master's
Degree. He went on to Cumber-
Stephen Segall, President,
Tampa Jewish Social Service
land school of Law in Birming-
ham, Alabama, graduating in
1975. For three years he worked
as an assistant State Attorney in
the office of E.J. Salcines. Since
1978 he has been with the law
firm of Levine, Freedman,
Hirsch, and Levinson.
Segall and his wife Nancy,
have two children Alison, six
years old, and Stuart, three years
Segall does not feel he is an or-
ganization man, although he had
been president of USY (United
Synagogue Youth). In the past
four years Segall has worked up
the ladder from treasurer to vice
president of the Tampa Jewish
Social Service. "Now," he say,
"He is ready to assume the re-
sponsibility of the presidency of
the agency."
Segall approves the move to
the new Social Service offices on
South Magnolia Avenue as a
positive step in having a more ac-
cessible location for their many
clients. He also feels that with all
the staff in one place they will be
better able to interact with each
other and also to address the
daily problems of an agency such
as this.
In looking toward the future,
Stephen Segall will try to imple-
ment what the dreamers envi-
sioned, and as president will try
to have the agency reach as many
people as possible and provide
them with the best social services

Kosher standards are tougher than the U.S. Government's.
But they're not tough enough for us.
Because while kosher law forbids many non-meat fillers
and additives in meat, it does allow by-products and artificial coloring.
We don't.
We not only make sure our hot dogs, bologna, salami,
and knockwurst are 100% pure beef, but we also make sure they're
100% natural. Qualities everyone has a taste for.
At Hebrew National, we make our kosher meat by the
only law we can live with. Our own.

American Support for Israel a Necessity "*" ** ^ a
This urgent message was distributed by the Tampa Jewish
Federation Community Relations Committee at the com-
munity's annual meeting last Wednesday evening. The im-
portance of this action is reflected in the daily news reports.
Please communicate your concerns.
1. We ask you and your friends to write, call or send mail-
grams to the President of the United States in support for Is-
rael's action in Lebanon. Suggested text (in your own words):
We urge continued opposition to sanctions from any source
in reaction to Israel's essential right to defend against terror-
ism and bombardment from missiles.
The need for a maximum buffer zone to prevent the use of
Lebanon as a launching pad for terrorism must be condition
for Israeli withdrawal.
We urge- no moves that would force Israel's early with-
drawal from southern Lebanon prior to full international
guarantees against re-entry by PLO terrorists.
Israel needs and deserves full U.S. support as an ally in its
hour of need. World terrorism is a threat to all Democratic

2. Send all the cash you can in payment of 1982 pledge. We
are wiring funds to U JA as they come in.
3. Increase your 1982 TJF-UJA pledge to the greatest
extent possible! Human Services must be met.
U.S. Government Has Been
As the fighting in southern
Lebanon slows, it is clear that the
United States has been generally
supportive of Israel's actions.
Unlike similar events in recent
years, it did not demand Israel's
immediate pullback, it has recog-
nized the need for a stabilized
Lebanon, and it supports the
concept of withdrawal of "out-
side" forces and the strengthen-
ing of the Lebanese government.
Hard Negotiations Ahead
However, it should be noted
that much negotiation lies ahead.
The pressures upon the Adminis-
tration from groupings within
this nation, from the Arab world
and from other foreign elements
will be intense. It is important
that the President and other offi-
cials are keenly aware that there
is intense support for Israel in
this time of crisis.
The Mail Goea The Other Way
We are told by people very
close to the White House that the
communication from people
across the nation has been
heavily against Israel. It is a sit-
uation that must not continue to
Once again, we are called upon
to write, wire or call President
Reagan expressing support for
Israel's actions in southern Leba-
non and calling on this govern-
ment to continue in its efforts to
stabilize that nation, to help in

Call on others and your syna-

the same. There is need for an
avalanche of mail. Your letters

In Addition
It is particularly important
that our two Senators receive
quantities of mail. Law ton Chiles

have been our House members

troubled by problems they can no

Timesman s Paradox
Lewis Misses the PointAgain
Continued from Page 1
ltitae I was puzzled. The lady in
KibbuU Nahshon is living on fer-
| ,iie land which was once worked
bv Arabs. What was the essential
difference between the settlement
0f Nahshon many years ago and
the current settlement on the
West Bank?
I asked this question of an Is-
raeli colleague, a staff writer for
HaareU, Israel's independent
morning newspaper. My question
produced a verbal explosion:
The essential difference is the
rule of law. The Likud Gover-
nment are destroying democracy
and the rule of law in Israel. And
you American Jews, you liberals,
you lovers of democracy are sup-
porting its destruction here by
not speaking out against the
Government's actions."
I WAS shocked. I did not ex-
''feet this outburst from my
reasonable friend. What was this
loose talk about the destruction
of democracy? I said:
"All the polls show that the
majority of Israelis support the
settlements on the West Bank,
locqueville wrote about the
tyranny of the majority' 150
years ago. You may not agree
with the majority, but it's still
I inqueville was writing
about slavery which was within
the law of the States at the time.
The essential difference is that
Israel 'aw is being violated every
day by the settlers and the Army
and the Government which pro-
tects them. Without a rule of law
democracy nustfall."
1 asked h m to be more specific.
What laws were being violated,
how. when where?
"Let me put it to you simply.
Begin and Sharon can count.
They know that the 16,000 Jews
that have been added to the West
Bank at the cost of billions of
shekels by the Likud Govern-
ment, together with the 10,000 or
so Jews settled by Labor since
1967, are only a tiny fraction of
the number of Arab babies born
on the West Bank in the same
period. The demographic problem
is insoluable unless you drive out
a large number of the million-odd
Arabs on the West Bank.
Sharon's plan is to get rid of the
leaders and those with potential
for leadership, the educated, city
dwellers and leave the villagers to
be the hewers of wood and
drawers of water for Israel.
"HOW DO you drive them
out? By every illegal means. You
activate terrorists to plant bombs
in the cars of their elected
mayors, you arm the settlers and
a few Arab quislings to run ram-
pages through Arab towns,
pogroms against property, not
against people. A few Arabs have
bage detail. The only thing that
can save Halabi's job and give
the Israeli TV viewers some in-
kling of what's going on in the
West Bank is an outcry by lovers
of Israel in the United States.''
"YOU ARE not being very
realistic," I commented. "You
can't expect American Jewry,
which aa you know ia more an
amorphous mass than a mono-
been killed by settlers. The mur-
derers are known, but the police
are virtually helpless. They have
their orders. What'a your excuse
for not speaking out against
these violations of Israel law and
Jewish morality?"
"I didn't know about them," I
said lamely. "And what you say
sounds incredible. Most of the
settlers are religious Jews ."
"Religious Jews," he inter-
rupted, who follow a higher law
and do whatever their rabbis tell
them. At least one of he Gush
i'-rt.unim rabbi j has written that
it is a m'-" ch destrov
Anialek, in. ng w-aen and
Jesse Zel Lurie, a
veteran American Jew-
ish journalist, is the
grandfather of four
sabra grandchildren.
"As for not knowing about
these actions, every one has been
reported in detail in the Israel
press. I'm sure that the New
York Times has printed these
stories though probably not on
the front page."
I ASKED myself: what could
American Jews do if they did
know about it? Would we stop
supporting Israel? Of course not.
Would we be in the position of
my daughterashamed of the
government's actions and help-
less to do anyhting about it? Per-
haps ignorance is bliss.
I grasped at a democratic
straw in my friend's diatribe. "If
you can report these illegal ac-
tions then you still have freedom
of the press. As long as there is
freedom of the press, democracy
will survive."
"Our freedom of the press is in
danger. The Likud wants to con-
trol the TV which is a govern-
ment monopoly. The West Bank
reporter is a Druse, Rafik Halabi,
a reserve Army officer. He has
been broadcasting fair and objec-
tive reports from the West Bank,
so the Likud is after his scalp.
They are using racist, Macar-
thyite tactics to get him fired."
"Can he be fired? Won't his
fellow journalists protect him?"
"Of course they will. But
Halabi can be harassed until he
quits. They've already ordered
him not to interview West Bank
mayors. The next step will be to
take him off the West Bank beat
and put him in charge of a gar-
lithic body, to get excited over
the fate of one TV reporter.''
"You want more sensational
material? We have a file of horror
stories reported to us by soldiers
returning from occupation duty
on the West Bank. We can refer
to them in general termswe can
rail against the occupation that
destroys the moral fibre and self-
respect of our youthbut we
can't print the details because
military censorship covers ac-
tions by soldiers on active duty."
My friend had talked himself
out. We sat for a long moment
together in sad silence. Finally, I
commented wearily:
"You want me tp go back to
America and repeat everything
you've told me. You want me to
forget about my life's dream of
Israel, a light to all nationsthe
dream that led my children to
makealiya. ."
"NO, I want your help to pre-
serve the dream for your grand-
children. We need your help to
preserve Jewish values, to defend
the rule of law, to protect freedom
of the press and all the other free-
doms promised in our Declara-
tion of Independence. Unlike the
United States, they were never,
codified in a Bill of Rights. We
don't have a democratic tradition
dating back to 1776. Most of our
people come from Eastern
Europe or Arab countries. Demo-
cracy is not part of their culture.
We need the help of American
lovers of Israel. The bastion of
democracy in the Middle East is
beginning to crumble. We need
your help to shore it up."
I shied away. "Tony Lewis was
here last month. You saw his
columns in The New York Times.
The only result among organized
Jewry was attacks on Tony
"Don't go to The New York
Times. Go to the Jewish press.
Go to liberal Jewish organiza-
tions such as the American Jew-
ish Committee, the American
Jewish Congress, the New Jewish
Agenda. Go to the Jewish
leaders. Isn't Howard Squadron,
the head of the President's Con-
ference, also president of the
American Jewish Congress?"
"Yes he is. And in both jobs he
is occupied with protesting Is-
rael's interests in Washington. In
a recent speech to the UJA,
Squadron gave his action agenda
for the coming year. It goes like
"We must demand of our
government the defense of Israel,
and much more importantly, the
defense of Western values. We
must, in brief, continue to be a
'bloody nuisance'."
If you believe that a vacation
should be spent in an exotic land
where ancient sights stir your senses
and people warm your heart-
a perfect blend of fascination and
relaxation with long, lazy clays and
magical nights of music, laughter
and fine cuisine-all at a cost that's
easily affordable-you believe
in miracles.

The wedding ceremony of
Gina S. Yaffin and Dr. Willard S.
Harris took place on Sunday
morning, July 4, in the Davis
Islands home of Gina's parents,
Lilyan and Louis Schonbrun.
Rabbi Kenneth Berger and
Cantor William Hauben offi-
ciated. A luncheon reception
followed at the Hyatt Regency.
Many beautiful traditions were
observed during this ceremony.
This couple were the first to be
married beneath the Chupah
from which the Torahs were
transported from Congregation
Beth Israel to Congregation
Rodeph Sholom, in the proces-
sional of June, 1980, uniting the
two synagogues into one.
Ceremonial wine was sipped
from a cup which belonged to
Gina's great-grandmother,
Hershel Haliczer. Gina wore the
wedding band passed down from
her grandmother, Esther Schon-
brun, to Gina's mother, Lilyan.
Yiddish background music was
provided by Gina's brother,
Mark Schonbrun. Joyce S. Hart-
mann, the bride's sister, was
honored during the ceremony for
her role as matchmaker, as it was
she who introduced and brought
the couple together. Gina's son,
Joshua, seven years old, with
cousins, Matthew and Bree
Schonbrun, who are eight and
five years old, respectively, lit
sparklers following the ceremony,
in honor of both the wedding and
the 4th of July.
Dr. Harris is a native of
Albany, New York, and a grad-
uate of Cornell University and
New York University-Bellevue
College of Medicine. He is Chief
of the Medical Service at the VA
Hospital, Professor of Medicine,
and Associate Chairman of the
Department of Medicine at USF
College of Medicine.
Gina was born in Tampa. She
received her degree from USF;
studied theatre at New York's
Neighborhood Playhouse and has
been seen in local theatre pro-
ductions. She is a legal assistant
in the law offices of her brother,
Harvey Schonbrun. Also, she is a
past Director of Women's
Division and of Young Leader-
ship of the Jewish Federation of
Pine I las County.
The couple will reside in
TOP Receives First
Cash Gift in Tampa
Although the donor wishes to
remain anonymous, it was
learned from the Foundation's
Executive Director, Joel Breit-
stein, that Tampa recently re-
ceived its first liquid (cash) en-
dowment gift. The gift was made
to the Foundation, when the
donor established a Philanthropic
A Philanthropic Fund is a
component fund of the Founda-
tion which can be established by
a donor making a gift of cash,
real estate, stock, bonds or other
like property to the Foundation.
The Fund is identified on the
Fount ation books with the name
of the donor, the family name or
any other identification the donor
may feel appropriate. When sett-
ing up the fund, the donor may
choose to designate what the in-
come generated by the invest-
ment of the asset will be used for,
or he may reserve the privilege of
making periodic recommenda-
tions to the Tampa Distribution
Committee for the future chari-
table use of income and principal.
Establishing a Philanthropic
Fund offers the donor flexibility,
since he can support varied chari-
table interest through the
medium of one fund. In addition,
where the principal remains
intact or the donor supplements
his lifetime gift by a bequest in
his will into his Philanthropic
Fund, he can perpetuate the phi-
lanthropic interests nurtured
during his lifetime.
Forms for Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Wedding and Engagement
are now available at every Tampa synagogue office in addition
to the FLORIDIAN office. All material must be received at least
two weeks before publication, typewritten, in the FLORIDIAN
