Book of Jonah
Plays a Major Role On Yom Kippur
The Biblical book best known
cause of its illustrations is the
look of Jonah. Young, middle-
fed or old, who doesn't have a
bion of Jonah being swallowed
y the whale? The story is told in
it, in folk song, and in every
maginable visual form. This
le story of Jonah (Yonah in
Hebrew) is read near the climax
f Yom Kippur. However,
Kcause of its length, and fre-
piently because of our weariness,
e do not always appreciate the
ichness of the story and the
my lessons which it teaches.
The American composer
eorge Gershwin placed in his
wt folk operetta, "Porgy and
"." a song entitled "It Ain't
ecessarily So." The lyrics go:
the stories you're liable to read
the Bible they ain't
essarily so." One of those
pnes is Jonah and the whale.
[Gershwin expressed a theme
valent in our society in
stioning Biblical stories in
eral and Jonah among them.
1 approach has trickled into
' wide circles of thought, and
everybody finds the tale of
wn, the reluctant prophet,
Wentic On this Yom Kippur.
"should take a fresh look at the
h story and its significance.
THE DRAMA of Jonah opens
with God commanding him to go
to the city of Ninveh and to call
upon the inhabitants to repent
lest' they be killed for their evil
ways. Jonah is not prepared for a
task of this magnitude and
believes he can escape from God's
domain by boarding a ship which
will take him to the depths of the
sea and to locales unknown.
When a turbulent storm erupts,
it is clear that it is God's doing.
Jonah tries to sleep the storm
out, but it is to no avail. The
sailors call him forward, asking
for his identification.
All Jonah can say is "I am a
Hebrew, and I fear the Lord the
God of heaven who hath made
agriculturally viable. During the
Middle Ages, etrogim from the
isle of Corfu came into use and
this continued into this century.
In the early 1990s, just about
eighty years ago, Rav Kook ruled
that only Palestine etrogim were
fit for ritual use on Sukkot.
HIS HALACHIC stand, stem-
ming from his love of the land
and its pioneers, provided a boost
to the citrus farming of the
country. The Jewish State has
benefitted substantially from his
definitive action and infinite
concern, and hundreds of
thousands of Israeli etrogim are
sold annually in every country
'omen's Division Campaign Leaders

jfnt Lili Kaufmann has announced that Bobbe Karpay and

where Jews reside.
As a Jew born in the U.S.A.
and now settled in Israel, two
markets for the sale of the lulav
and etrog and the myrtle and
willow branches stand out in my
mind. One is on the Eastside in
downtown New York, where
stores of all types become Sukkot
speciality shops, during the few
weeks before the festival.
The other are the myriad
markets of Jerusalem, each more
colorful than the other and
stretching from Mahane Yehuda
into Meah Shearim. My children
and I make the grand tour each
year just to capture the flavor
and fervor of the sellers and the
buy ere.
HOWEVER, my love for the
four species derives in the first
place from my childhood ex-
periences in the home of my
grandfather, the late Rabbi
Tobias Geffen.
Residing in Atlanta, Ga., our
hometown, I recall that this made
the annual acquisition of the
lulav and etrog much more diffi-
cult than just going and picking
out a set in the marketplace. My
grandfather, from his arrival in
the city in 1910, felt it his respon-
sibility not just to get the Sukkot
species for himself but also for
Jews throughout the south. De-
lays in their arrival in Atlanta
until just before the holiday gave
rise to innovative methods of see-
ing that lulav and etrog got to its
final destination on time.
As a young lad. my father had
to take the Sukkot set to the
railroad station on the eve of
Sukkot. He waited until the train
arrived and then gave the
precious cargo to the engineer,
who personally kept watch over it
in the engine of his Southern
Railway train. On arrival at his
destination, he delivered it to his
next door neighbor, an observant
Jew in a small Georgia town.
MY MOST poignant memories
relate specifically to observing
my grandfather as he prepared
the lulavim. He would inspect
each lulav, checking the spine
and the point very closely. Then
he stripped off s few of the long

Doug Cohn Designated
1984 Campaign
Associate Chairman
Joining John Osterweil in
heading the 1984 Tampa Jewish
Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign is Doug Cohn,
who will be serving as associate
chairman. "Doug and I have
worked together in past Federa-
tion efforts and I am elated that
he has accepted this key posi-
tion," said Osterweil, who is
serving as 1984 general campaign
"His logical thinking, sensi-
tivity to both the individuals and
the issues involved, as well as his
strong commitment to the Jewish
community make him a very
capable leader in the campaign.
Together we have been planning
what we feel will be the finest
Federation campaign ever,"
Osterweil continued. "While
Doug will be working closely with
me in key decision making, he
will have specific responsibilities
within the organization as well.
He will be working closely with
the chairmen of the middle and
lower giving ranges, including
the Community Division which
handles Super Sunday. I am
confident that all aspects which
Doug deals with will be success-

Slogans Near Synagogue
demonstrators surrounded
a synagogue in Vitry, a
Paris suburb, on the second
day of Rosh Hashanah
shouting anti-Israeli and
anti-Semitic slogans.
The president of the Vitry
Jewish community, Dr. Maurice
Ruah, said that the city police in
the Communist-controlled mu-
nicipality had acted to protect
the synagogue but in what seem-
ed a half-hearted manner. He said
better police protection was pro-
vided after two Deputy Mayors,
both Socialists, were alerted and
visited the site.
THERE ARE some 750 Jewish
families, some 4,000 people, in
the large working-class suburb in
Vitry in the south of Paris. The
mayor, a communist, took s
strong anti-Arab stand before the
last legislative elections in an ap-
parent bid to win extreme right
Since then, say members of the
local Jewish community, he has
taken a strong anti-Israeli stand
in what seems an effort to "clean
the slate."
Ruah said the municipality is
responsible for the anti-Israeli
climate which was conducive to
the demonstration. He said the
synagogue, which was not
damaged, was actually defended
by local Jewish defense groups.
There were no reports of other
incidents during the Rosh Hash-
anah holiday.

Volunteers for Israel' Helps
Avert Manpower Shortage
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Volunteers for Israel does just
that. Since the beginning of its
operations last December, the or-
ganization has recruited and sent
over 1,000 Americans to help out
in Israel, volunteers vitally
needed to help offset an emergen-
cy manpower shortage that
thi eatened to cripple not only the
country's war effort in Lebanon,
but its economy's ability to
function properly due to the
many reservists called to serve.
For every one month a volun-
teer works, one Israeli reservist
returns to home and job. And
that bouys morale as well as pro-
Volunteers for Israel pack food
and clothing, clean equipment,
repair machines, and work on
construction and land projects
necessary to the security of the
country. Nothing glamorous as-
suredly, but vitally important all
the same to the continuity of
Israeli life.

exactness, of which only he was
capable, he fashioned holders for
all the lulavim and then an extra
one for me to play with.
Then he meticulously put
together the entire lulav set, and
once again checked the etrogim
to make sure the pitom was still
intact. The sets were now ready
to be sent and were quickly
dispatched by the US mail
services to communities widely
spread throughout the south.
The etrog. according to the
Midrash, symbolizes the heart.
For the Jewish people today, the
State of Israel represented by the
etrog is our spiritual heart.
The heart is that organ of the
body that must pump the life-
blood to the rest of the system. In

Jeannette Sherrill Maddox and
Kenneth David Karpay were
married Aug. 27 in a ceremony at
the bride's home in Lakeland.
They were wed by Rabbi Frank
N. Sundheim of Congregation
Schaarai Zedek under a Chupah
built by the bride's father. A
reception followed the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Maddox of
Lakeland, and the groom is the
son of Mr. and Mrs. George B.
Karpay of Tampa, and the
grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Nate
Denenberg of Long Island, and
Mrs. Rose Karpay of Hollywood,
The bride wore her mother's
wedding gown and had Marsha
Mehring of Oklahoma City as her '

ual sustenance for Jewish people

tinually be revitalized.

festival let our hearts beat in

the interrelationship between the
people and the land of Israel.

Having recently opened an of-
fice in Fort Lauderdale at the
Jewish Community Center, Vol-
unteers for Israel is stepping up
efforts to reach American Jews in
the Southeast. Ben Dinkee, a res-
ident of Coconut Creek, who him-
self experienced a month in Israel
with his wife, Sylvia as a volun-
teer, has been appointed the new
office's regional director.
For him, encouraging people to
volunteer for Israel is easy, for he
overflows with enthusiasm over
his own experience there in Jury.
The Dinkee' had helped out at
a military camp called Machneh
Julis near Jerusalem. They
started their stay sorting pur-
chase orders and bills, keeping a
maintenance record for army
vehicles, and later moved on to
other tasks. He was assigned to

B&P Women's Network Begins Exciting Year
Less than a year ago, a group
0[ Tampa business and profes-
ional women gathered at the
^e of Women's Division
President Marlene Linick. They
met to test the waters for a dif-
ferent kind of organization. It
vis not that there was anything
wrong with any of the existing
for Jewish women it
was that women who worked
during the day were not able to
fully participate in those other
As they went around the circle,
'and each woman spoke about
whether a Jewish Business and
b| Professional Women's Network
should be formed, it was clear
that there was a very real need
for such an organization.
Although several of the women
already belonged to professional
women's networks, they ad-
mitted that there was never-
theless a void in their lives that
other groups could not fill. They
had no vehicle to connect as Jew-
ish business and professional
women, no way of exploring
together their very special iden-

activity. Nonetheless, the
women were determined not to let
the energy and desire that was
felt so strongly fall by the
wayside. These women made it
their business to formulate plans
for the Jewish Business and
Professional Women's Network
under the Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion's Women's Division.
A community-wide meeting
was scheduled at the Tampa
Club, and over 80 enthusiastic
women made it their business to
investigate the fledgling Busi-
ness and Professional Network,
giving it a chance to reach out to
them and seek a linkage together.
Since that time, there have
been three successful meetings,
even during the summer months.
On Sept. 26, the group will begin
the fall season with an exciting
guest speaker, Nancy Ford, who
was responsible for the founding
of the Florida Women's Network
and is the vice president of the
National Alliance for Profession-
al and Executive Women's
Network. Reservations may be
made with the Tampa Jewish
Federation Women's Division.
Tampa Mayor Bob Martinez is
already lined up for the Nov. 7
meeting. The group has branched
out from the Steering Committee
to the formation of other commit-
tees to get more and more women
involved in the planning and
development of the organization.
Amy Epstein, president of the Gulf Coast CouncilJewish Natior

Shofar blast, the rabbi an-
nounced that a short Maariv

immediately afterwards.
The Shofar sounded and there
was an immediate stampede of

Fortunately, a "Minyan" re-

I was saddened to see such a
mass exodus. It indicated to me
how little those Jews understood
about the final Shofar call on
Yom Kippur.
Those worshippers believed
that the Shofar signaled the end
of the holiday and the end of the
fast. They reasoned, perhaps cor-

ended there is no longer a need to

What they did not discern is
that final Shofar blast on Yom

ter court has reaffirmed the ban
on recordings of the Nazi era
which a Duesseldorf Firm sought
to have lifted. The recordings,
produced by a Lichtenstein-based
company, were marketed in Ger-
many by the firm as scientific
documentaries, the court ruled
they were nothing but pro-
paganda for the Nazi ideology.
The records carried titles such as
"Waffen SS."- "Feldzug Im
Westen and "Blitzkrieg In
Polen." They contained speeches,
songs and news reports.
The Reagan Administration ex-
pressed concern about the pres-
ence of "Syrian-supported Pales-
tinian forces"' involved in the
fighting in Lebanon. State De-
partment deputy spokesman
Alan Romberg gave no details as
to how many Palestinians are in-
volved or where they are located.
White House press spokesman
Larry Speakes was more specific
He told reporters that Druze
militia and Palestinian forces

and with Syrian logistical sup-
port engaged in direct attacks on
the Lebanese army" in the strat-
egic Suq Al Gharb region over-
looking Beirut.
Romberg said. "There is in-
creasing evidence that some
Syrian supported Palestinian for-
ces are involved in the fighting in
Lebanon." He said this involve-
ment of Palestinians, some of
whom are members of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization, is a
"serious breach" of the agree-
ment last year by which the PLO
was evacuated from Lebanon. He
said the involvement of the

JWB Helps Marine Find His Jewish Identity
Editor's Not*: The exchange
which follows has been excerpted
from letters among Marine Sgt.
Ted Isaacson, writing from the
U.S. Embassy in South Africa;
Asher Tarmon, director, JWB
Israel HQ.; and Jay C. Jacobson,
freelance Israeli journalist. The
exchange appears in the late
summer 1963 edition of JWB
JWB. Israel HQ
12 Hess St.
Jerusalem, Israel
Dear Mr. Tarmon:
I've been in South Africa a
little more than a month now,
and so far I'm enjoying my stay.
This is a beautiful country and
the people (of all kinds) are very
The synagogue here is close to
my house, and I attend services
regularly. I've already made
many friends among the mem-
bers it's true that Jewish peo-
ple, no matter where you find
them in the world, are all part of
one big family.
I'm really sorry that I didn't
get a chance to say a personal
goodbye. I wanted to thank JWB
and you for your help, encourage-
ment and hospitality during the
14 months I spent in Jerusalem. I
truly appreciate the many invita-
tions you extended to me to you/
JWB events in Israel.
Shalom and .11 the beat,
Sgt. Ted Iaaacaoa. USMC
c-oUS. Embassy
Republic of Sooth Africa
Dear Ted:
I am an independent writer and
journalist living in Israel, and am
deeply involved with the Jewish
press in America. I am currently
working on several assignments
for JWB Circle.
Please tell me where you're
from, what has happened to you
since you joined the Marines, and
what your relationship has been
with JWB at home and in Israel.
Jay C. JacobaoD
Sgt. Ted Isaacson, USMC

Dear Jay:
Thank you for your letter.
I would be honored to have my
story appear in JWB Circle, as
would anyone particularly any
serviceman who knows what
JWB is and what it does for Jews
in America's Armed Forces. I'll
try to write the facts, and you can
use what you need.
My home town is Jamaica,
Queens, N.Y. After high school, I
joined the Marine Corps, and
began my recruit training
"boot camp" at Parris Island,
S.C., on Sept. 8,1976.
I became a very familiar face at
the Parris Island Jewish Chapel!
During my entire three months at
boot camp, I went to services
every week.
During the rigors of our
merciless, rigid Marine Corps
training, no matter how much
sweat and pain, I always had that
to look forward to that calm,
quiet, peaceful hour at the Jewish
Chapel. It was one place where I
could shuck off the culture shock
of boot camp, relax a bit, and feel
somewhat at home. It meant a
great deal to me then, as it still
does now.
Because of the effect the Parris
Island Jewish Chapel had on me,
I made a decision that I've lived
by throughout the years: that no
matter where I would go or what
I would do, I would never forget
that I "m a Jew. I vowed to be an
community, a Sunday School
teacher, and a lay leader.
During this time. Col. Robert
J. Blum, Maj. Robert Magnus
and I assisted Chaplain (Rabbi)
John J. Rosenblatt in the com-
plete renovation and expansion of
the Jewish Chapel.
Rabbi Rosenblatt received i
well-deserved Navy Commenda
On surprise visit to JWB in New York, Marine Sgt. Ted Isaacson (left)
uses both hands to indicate Jerusalem (top) and Pretoria (bottom),
recent duty stations. With him is Rabbi David Lapp, director of
JWB's Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy. It was a joyous reunion for
the two. Isaacson, of Queens, N. Y., recalled how he had worked with
Rabbi Lapp and JWB's immediate past President Robert L. Adler to
have a full-time Jewish chaplain assigned to USMC base at Camp
Lejeune, N.C
active participant in the local
Jewish community wherever I
found myself a big city, a ship
at sea, a lonely Marine outpost .
no matter what.
After boot camp, I was assign-
ed to Camp Lejeune, N.C, where
I trained as a heavy vehicle
operator. It was my home for
three years, during which time I
learned and experienced a great
deal, rising through the ranks
from private to sergeant.
At Lejeune, again the Jewish
Chapel played a very great role in
my life. It was there that I learn-
ed to be a responsible, adult Jew.
There, too, my Jewish values and
principles were reinforced; I
became an active member of the

On my "dream sheet" I sub-
mitted Jerusalem as my first
choice of duty stations. The
chances of getting your first
choice are usually so sum as to be
non-existent, so I don't have to
tall you how surprised I was
when my assignment was read

As my plane landed at Ben-
Gurion Airport on March 12,
1961, I felt a great sense of his-
tory and emotion. I was the first
person in my immediate family to
return to Israel since the Dias-
pora began over 2,000 years ago.
My connections with JWB
Israel HQ in Jerusalem began
almost immediately. As a JWB
accredited Jewish lay leader, I
had read a great many JWB
publications. I knew there was an
office in the Holy City. As hick
would have it, the Solomon and
Mary Litt Building was one block
away from my apartment, just
behind the American Consulates
administrative compound.
Within a few days of my arrival, I
slopped in and introduced
myself. I was warmly welcomed,
and had a long chat over coffee
jvith the director, Asher Tarmon.
He explained the functions of
JWB-Israel, and invited me to
participate in numerous and fre-
quent activities.
During the 14 months of my
lour of duty in Israel, I made it a
point to stop in and see Tarmon
and his secretary Vitty Kollek as
often as I could.
Another thing: I noticed
specifically that JWB and the
Community Center programs in
Israel have made a great con-
tribution to the cultural enrich-
ment of the people, particularly
the disadvantaged. And the
assistance rendered by JWB to
American servicemen and their

Our New
lives in Jerusalem is absolute-
ly vital to our morale.
My Israel experience in general
was magnificent. It was truly a
gold opportunity to learn with all
five senses, and I took full ad-
vantage of it including be-
coming conversant in Hebrew.
The great thing about it was I
lived right in the heart of Jeru-
Whenever I had consecutive
days off, I made trips to historic
places all over Israel. I especially
loved going to Safed, city of the
great Jewish mystics. I found
distant relatives there, and they

Bnttr Ptoa 962-4044
made me feel so very much at
home that I consider Safed to be
my village!
Basically, all the Israelis I met
were extremely friendly to me
and to my fellow Marines, none of
whom, incidentally, were Jewish.
I also had many friends among
the Arabs; whenever my buddies
and I threw a party, which was
often, all of us Christians,
Jews and Muslims would all
be laughing, joking and having a
great time together.
The world press, unfortunate-
ly, seems only to report the bad
news from the Middle East
but believe me, and I'm a reliable
witness, that for every bad in-
cident, 1,000 good ones take
place. After my experiences in Is-
rael, I can only say that I'm very,
very optimistic; I know it won't
be long until peace reigns in the
Middle East.
To sum it all up, I'd have to
say that I must be one of the
luckiest Jewish Marines ever to
don s set of "dress blues" and
to JWB, hoi hakavod and keep
up the good work!
Editor's Note: Sgt. Isaacson is
now in the U.S. attached to the
Marine Air Wing, Cherry Point,

important to the Jews.
"The Jews are lower than animals."
General George S. Pat ton referring to
the survivors of the Holocaust
"The Americans are so enthusiastic about
opening Palestine to the refugees because
they do not want to have many of them in
New York."
British Foreign Minister Bevin
"We appear to be treating the Jews as the
Nazis treated them, except that we do not
exterminate them."
Report to President Truman
"We will punish the Jews in a way the race
dislikes by striking at their pockets."
Sir Evelyn Barker, British Commander in
Palestine on the eve of Israels Independence

Drawn from hitherto secret documents placed in the custody of
the author by David K. Niles, a close aide to both Roosevelt
and Truman, and scores of interviews here and in Europe and
Israel, this book is about the 400,000 survivors of the
Holocaust and their dreams. It is about organizations like
B-Richa that rescued the homeless of Eastern and Central
Europe through an underground network headquartered in
Palestine; it is about a phantom army created to spirit
thousands of Jews past a British Navy determined to block
immigration to the promised land. It reveals fully the role
of Niles in President Truman's support of Israel. And it
shows the indifference of those who stood by while
"Displaced Persons" from Hitler's death camps were
held under guard against their will.
Redemption of the Unwanted re-creates the heroic
story of those who survived the Holocaust with a rare
combination of sensitivity, historical accuracy, and a
master historian's gift for fine writing. ST. MARTINS/MAREK
