for September showed a nine
percent increase, a record high for
that month. During the first two
weeks of October, the price of
government subsidized food
products, fuel and other con-
sumer items rose by 50 percent
and the cost of imported goods
by 23 percent, equal to last
week's devaluation of the Shekel.
Inflation in October is ex-
pected to soar to a rate of 16-20
percent, an unprecedented high
for a single month. The next cost-
of-living increments will not be

Economists expect the inflation
rate for all of 1983 to be as high

Prices rose by 86.8 percent

AJCongress Suffers Setback
On Issue of Arab Dollar Holdings
WASHINGTON (JTA) The American Jewish
Congress' two year battle with the Treasury Department
in an effort to compel the Department to reveal the extent
of Arab dollar holdings in the United States was served a
severe setback when the Supreme Court, without com-
ment, refused to hear an appeal from the AJC against a
lower court decision supporting the Department's right to
bar disclosure of American holdings of individual Arab
THE GOVERNMENT had contended that it was
justified in withholding the data on the grounds that
disclosure would harm national security, although the
International Investment Survey Act of 1976 requires the
Treasury to collect and publish data about foreign in-
vestment in the United States. The AJC claimed the
national security issue was merely a pretext for hiding the
extent of Arab financial power and influence in this

Dr. Anschel O. Weiss. It's
worth saying again because he's
someone the Tampa Jewish com-
munity will be getting to know.
Dr. Weiss became executive
director of Tampa Jewish Social
Service (TJSS) on Sept. 1, and
things began happening im-
mediately. The board of TJSS,
shortly after Anschel's arrival,
approved a plan wherein TJSS
would be "working together in
support of Hillel School of Tampa
staff and students."
That is part of Anschel's prime
concern Jewish Communal
Services. "I believe that a profes-
sional job and a Jewish com-
munal job can be combined effec-
tively" is a phrase he uses fre-
quently and explains its meaning
quite clearly. While fulfilling
one's professional role, or in this
case, the agency's professional
duties, there is room and time to
do the Jewish communal work
which needs to be done in a com-

Anschel Weiss comes to
Tampa from Cincinnati where he
was Director of Adult Develop-
ment and Aging Services for the
Jewish Family Service. This de-
partment had five people in it.
The whole of TJSS is three full
time social workers, one half-time
and one currently on maternity
leave. This is in addition to the
three workers in the Senior
Project of the Jewish Community
Center who are located on the
JCC premises.
Weiss has a bachelor's degree
from Brooklyn College, a
Master's degree from Boston
University and his PhD from
Case Western Reserve Univer-
sity. He likes to keep his personal
work varied with a mix of clinical
work and single parent family
involvement but his real interests
lie in intergenerational issues.
He enjoys his work with the
elderly but he doesn't let them
'suffer from agism.' "Cohorts of
older people are better educated
and in better health than any
other group. They should be
proud of their age and who they
are. Otherwise there is a denying
of one's age," Anschel explained.
His best advice on aging is to
have a meaningful life before
your 60s. "New experiences
come but they are not completely
different than life before. It is a
question of life enhancement,"
Anschel Weiss explains.
Tampa Jewish Social Service

Tampa Jewish Federation for
this year, up $4,000 from last

be a full time staff person, recep-

pected that programs will include
family life series, and workshops
and seminars.
"Remember," this new execu-
tive director emphasizes, "TJSS
has a sliding fee scale. No one is
ever turned away because of what
they can pay!" During the first
six months of 1983, TJSS had a
cumulative case load of 578
active cases. It was explained
that any given month during that
period the agency had a case load
of 150. "The overwhelming
majority of those cases were Jew-
ish clients," said Weiss.

Karpay concluded.

and to join members of the agen-
cy boards in this year's cam-
paign," stated Shor. "If women
will take and work a minimum of
five (5) cards each between now

job will be done and our job will
be successful," Shor remarked.
Karpay and Shor noted that
the "Federation stands at the

Balanced View
New Institute Hopes
To Make Stronger
Jewish Understanding
On the American Board
THE United States is perforru-
ing an important role in the
achievement of an independent
Lebanon. But Americans, and
this includes Jews, are offended
when you say that.
This is the opinion of Morde-
chai Gazit. Among other things,
Gazit was Israel's Ambassador
to France from 1975 to 1979. His
record as a diplomat is long and
distinguished, and when Gazit
talks, everybody listens.
Well, most everybody. Accord-
ing to Gazit, American Jews
prefer to believe that the United
States is letting people down all
over the world with a self-
interested indifference to the
principles of freedom that these
days they consider a shocking
SAYS THE soft-spoken Am-
bassador: "When I tell them
otherwise, many of them become
hostile. At a lecture before a com-
munity gathering in White
Plains, N.Y. last week, the
audience was absolutely unwill-
ing to hear anything nice about
their own government.
"But consider your European
allies. By contrast, the United
States has a very good record.
America shows a consistency in
the exercise of its power that is
admirable. For a democracy to
have such a sterling record is
extraordinary. Remember how
your own President Reagan had
to get down on his knees before
the Congress for the authority to
extend the Marines' service in
Lebanon 18 months?"
Gazit, who was in Miami last
week as consultant to the
American Jewish Committee's
Institute on American Jewish-
Israeli Relations, pauses
thoughtfully. "Things would be a
lot simpler for Yuri Andropov
than they were for President
Reagan," he says. "For
Andropov, there is no problem in
the consistent exercise of Soviet
power. Andropov simply makes a
unilateral decision and acts on it,
and he can use the power at his
command in any way he wishes."
WHY DON'T American Jews
like to her this?
Partly, says Ambassador
Gazit, because of the angry
American Jewish reaction to the
Reagan Administration's deci-
sions in Lebanon when Israel was
even more heavily involved there
than it is now. But the reaction
goes beyond this to the unique
relationship that exists between
the Jewish communities of Israel
and the United States.
"The Israeli role in Lebanon
raised doubts in American
Jewish minds," Gazit recalls.
"The question was increasingly
asked whether American Jews
have the right to disagree with
Israel from time to time, and not
only on such critical issues as
wartime operations."
It was apparently from debates
such as these that the Institute
on American Jewish-Israeli Rela-
tions was born. The American
Advisory Board held its first
meeting in December, 1982. An
Israeli Advisory Board was
luminaries as Max Kampelman,
U. S. Ambassador to the Madrid
Conference on Human Rights;
Stuart Eizenstat, a former
Jimmy Carter aide, who is pres-
ident of the Institute, and Rita
Ha user, a former head of the U.S.
delegation to the UN Com-
mission on Human Rights.
The Israeli Board includes,
The united States
has a very good
record. America
shows a con-
sistency in the
exercise of its
power that is
Ambassador Gazit
organized shortly after that.
SAYS GAZIT: "There have
been many organizations before
the Institute centering on Israeli
relations with the Diaspora. But
this is the first one that con-
centrates uniquely on Israeli re-
lations with American Jews."
What is more, the Institute
reaches out beyond the sponsor-
ing American Jewish Committee.
On the American Board are such
among 22 other leading figures,
Emanuel Rackman, who is pres-
ident of Bar-1 Ian University; and
Abraham Harman, a former Is-
raeli Ambassador to the United
Nations, and currently president
of Hebrew University.
"THERE IS a danger," says
the 61-year-old Ambassador
Gazit, "of developing misunder-
standings between the two com-
munities on an ideological level.
On the Israeli Board
Why stress the negative when it
is not yet a danger? Through our
Institute, we hope to ferret these
negatives out, examine them and
learn, as an alternative, to stress
the positive."
Such as to see the strength in
U.S. foreign policy, not merely
the weaknesses, about which we
can be critical?
"Yes," says Gazit carefully,
except that such a consideration
represents American attitudes
generally, "while the Institute
focuses on American Jewish at-
titudes specifically."
Ambassador Gazit offers an
example. The Institute asked Dr.
Judy Elitzur, a member of the
Department of Communications
at Hebrew University, to head a
study into the Israeli media's
handling of events dealing with
American Jewry.
is an endless fascination with
American affairs, and an endless
coverage of them, in the Israeli
media. But by contrast, there is
very little about American Jew-
ish affairs, and what there is
seems too often trivialized."
A second example: The Ins-
titute is preparing an analysis in
synopsis of major dialogues
between Americans and Israelis
over the past 30 years. There are,
says Gazit, about 90 records of
such dialogues. The analysis will
be available by the end of
October. It was conducted by Is-
rael's Dr. Etta Bick, who holds a
PhD from New York University,
and it asks such questions as:
* What happened to the con-
crete recommendations of pre-
vious dialogues?
* Where any ever imple-
Were any ever implemented?
* Have the dialogues been ef
fective. and should they go on?
SAYS GAZIT: "These are inv
portant considerations. Simply to
talk is not the point. Dialogue
must yield recommendations for
action, and if there were any
made, what is needed is to exa-
mine the results with an eye on
improvement of relations be-
tween the two communities." The
same, he adds, holds true for
Israel's media coverage of
American Jewish affairs and how
the balance can be altered positi-
A third example: "Few people
doubt the centrality of Israel in
Jewish life." asserts Gazit. "But
a recent Institute 'blockbuster'
examines the right of dissent
which American Jews exercised,
many of them for the first tint,
during the war in Lebanon.
"Do American Jews have the
right to public expressions of dis-
agreement with Israeli policies?
This is the question," Gazit ob-
serves, 'Svhieh the study answers
for the American Advisory Board
in the form of parameters and
guidelines. Now," Gazit adds,
"the Israeli Advisory Board's
response to the question is being
formulated. After that, we hope
for interaction."
HOW DOES Ambassador
Gazit feel about this new, some-
what academic, phase of his life
after so many years in the diplo-
matic corps?
Replies Gazit: Apart from my
post as Ambassador to France, I
have reached the top twice in the
diplomatic service as director
general of ministries. That is un-
heard of in itself."
Gazit was director general,
Prime Minister's Office and Poll
tical Counselor, 1973-75; and di
rector general, Israel Ministry for
Foreign Affairs, 1972-72. These
jobs apart, in 1970-71, he was As-
sistant Director General, in
charge of U.S. and Canadian Af-
fairs; Deputy Director General,
Israel Ministry for Immigration
and Absorption. 1968-70; Asist
ant Director General, in charge of
Minister Plenipotentiary, Israel
Embassy, Washington, DC,
There were other posts also
along the way in Rangoon and
London going back to 1949.

.-ere?" Gazit ssks modestly, his
-oft voice contemplative, almost
inaudible. He retired from the
diplomatic service about two
years ago.
But there always was a strong
academic element in Gazit's
nature He holds a Master of Arts
degree from Hebrew University
11946). and the list of his publica-
tions is formidable.
To be published this year alone
is an equally imposing list of
books and pamphlets ranging
from studies of "The Peace
Process, 1969-1973, Efforts and
Contacts" to "President Truman
and Israel: The Arms Embargo
and Pressure to Withdraw from
the Sinai."
What is more, Gazit has been
at odd times a visiting professor,
fellow or lecturer at Boston Uni-
versity, Harvard, Brandeia, the
University of Chicago, Hebrew
University and Tel Aviv Univer-
ONE WONDERS how he fit all
this in while working in the diplo-
matic service at the same time,
and even being involved in peace
negotiations with Egypt after the
Yom Kippur War and serving in
1975 as chief of the Israel delega-
tion to the Geneva talks with
Says Gazit modestly: "In
1967. I returned unused a Rocke-
feller Foundation Award when
the Six-Day War changed my
original plans."
But as late as 1982, he was a
senior fellow at the Harry S.
Truman Research Institute for
the Advancement of Peace, a
senior fellow at the Leonard
Davis Institute for International
Relations, and a senior fellow at
the Shiloach Center for African
Studies at Tel Aviv University.
DOES GAZIT mind comment-
ing about some of Israel's major
problems today?
"Not at all," he responds
enthusiastically. "I am no longer
in the diplomatic service, and so
these comments must be taken as
decidely undiplomatic." There is
no laughter. He means the word
to be understood as unofficial.
France. You were Israel's Am-
bassador there at a difficult time:
"The relationship between
France and Israel has been
derailed since the 1967 War,
when Charles De Gaulle imposed
the embargo. There has been a
sense of frustration since then
which is mutual a love affair
that went wrong.
"In 1969, the ships incident at
Cherbourg made things worse.
The ships were ours. We had
bought and paid for them before
the war. The French wouldn't
deliver under the terms of the
embargo. And so we kidnapped
our own ships. They say, that be-
cause of this, we hurt them in
their amour propre their self-
esteem. It is a long time ago, but
the French don't forget.
"Besides, the French have a
tradition of promoting their self-
interest as a raison d'etat, and
this reason whitewashes every-
thing like the Super Etandard
war planes with the Exocet mis-
siles they have sold to Iraq, al-
though this can cause an inter-
national tragedy at the Straights
of Hormuz."

"But the Lebanese have lost
somewhere near 100,000 people in
the two civil wars since 1968.
They can't seem to apply the
lessons they have learned to
practical geopolitical realities."
"The United States has lent or
given grants to Israel of some $27
billion in the last 12 or 13 years.
In the Ford Administration,
Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer and Foreign Minister
Yigal Allon signed a $2.6 billion
aid agreement for Israel.
"This began a tradition later
carried on by the Carter and
Reagan Administrations. In
1977, President Carter, in signing
the aid bill, said that the U.S. has
stood by Israel's side for 30 years
since achieving its independence.
But, added Carter, as he saw it,
the U.S. would stand by Israel's
side not just for 30 years, but
forever. .-
"And take President Reagan.
He may be broygea (angry) with
Israel in the morning, but so
what? U.S. Israel relations are
much better than people seem to
realize especially American
Jews, like my White Plains au-
dience, who need to believe other-
wise for their own reasons.
"They don't want to hear this.
That's why the Institute on
American Jewish-Israeli Rela-
tions is so important. Things
need to be understood more
clearly on both sides."
NAME ONE such thing.
"We are facing the Syrian
Army on a diagonal from, say,
Metullah in the northeast of Is-
rael to Jabul Baruch, halfway
between Beirut and Damascus. If
we went home, as many Jews in
Israel and here in the United
States also want, the conse-
quences would be disastrous for
our country, and so we are com-
mitted to stay.
"But this has little to do with
the American role in Lebanon,
and people shouldn't be per-
mitted to get mixed up on this
important difference. It is not an
Israeli policy to put Humpty
Dumpty back together again in
Lebanon; that is the American
policy. Israel must not be blamed
if it doesn't succeed. And Israel's
facing the Syrians must not be
confused with this.
"That is what it means to
know. Through our Institute, we
want American Jews and Israeli
Jews to know."
This autobiography of John
Grauel will produce growls and
groans among readers. Interest
and irritation rival with each
other for attention. The book is
extremely interesting because
Grauel has led a fascinating life,
but the book is also exceedingly
irritating because the story of
that life is clouded by poor writ-
ing, sloppy editing and slipshod
The laws of grammar, sentence
construction, spelling and narra-
tive sequence are blatantly
ignored by Grauel and his writer,
Eleanor Elfenbein. If violations
of these laws were crimes, they
would both spend the rest of their
lives behind bars. Sentences run
on and into each other, often
without verbs or subjects.
Spelling errors are rampant.
ON ONE PAGE, for example,
the word "cabbalistic" appears
twice, just a few lines apart. One
version has two b's; the other has
one. "Superintendent" is spelled
"superintendent." Shimon Peres
appears as "Perez." He is iden-
tified as a former Prime Minister
of Israel, which he is not.
"Unhappy" ia spelled
"unahppy." "Statue" is spelled
"statute." "Impetus" comes out
as "impetuous." "Manger" ia
given as "manager." "Magda-
lene" is spelled "Magdeleine and
so on and so on. The media are
given a singular verb and, at one
point, Grauel says he "kept on
tops of the news."
The impression is that Grauel
dictated his thoughts in random
order to Elfenbein who just wrote
them down and regurgitated
them exactly as they were
spoken. No thought was given to
sentence construction, con-
tinuity, spelling, or grammar.
Why her name and photo appear
is a mystery. It is also a mystery
as to what happened between
1977 when the last chapter of the
book is dated and 1983 when the
book appeared.
A GREAT DEAL of editing
and proof-reading could have
been done in those six years.
None was done, and so the reader
is left to struggle with a discon-
tinuous, tossed-together, broken-
up volume in order to get at the
unusual life of John Grauel. Jew-
ish audiences throughout the
country are frmiliar with him as
an effective speaker on behalf of
UJA. He is usualry introduced as
a crew-member of the Exodus' 47,
made famous as the refugee snip
featured in Leon Uris' novel and
the film based on it.
Grauel's claim to fame goes
beyond his important participa-
tion in the sailing of the Exodus
47. He was a Methodist minister
who grew up in New England
and, at an early age, was involved
in Massachusetts politics.
During World War II, he studied
at a theological seminary in
Maine, where he also served as a
minister. Upset by anti-Semitism
in his parish and by stories about
Nazi treatment of Jews, Grauel
gave up the parish ministry to
work for the American-Christian
Palestine Committee.
This organization lobbied for
the creation of a Jewish state and
enabled Grauel to maintain his
political interest His sympaty
for the plight of European Jews
deepened, and he became a
member of Haganah, assigned to
the crew of the Exodus '47.
THE BOOK details the
conversion of the amp from
decrepit steamer, its trana-
Atlantic crossing, its trials and
tribulations in getting to sail
from Europe after loading 4,500
passengers on a ship designed to
accommodate no more than 600
and its hard voyage across the
Mediterranean to Paleatfae.
Grauel graphically describes how
the ship was rammed and fired
upon by the British, how it was
boarded and finally taken to
Haifa from where the refugees
were returned to Europe.
Grauel escaped into Palestine
to tell the story of the Exodus to
newsmen, to a UN fact-finding
committee and to the leaders of
the Jewish Agency.
He returned to the United
States where he worked to secure
men and materiel for the IMS
War of Independence. During the
war, he traveled across the
United States, raising money for
Israel. His speech-mailing set off
his continuing career of lecturing
and fund-raising for UJA. He
was also involved in the civil
rights movement and the anti-
Vietnam War effort but his
primary allegiance ia to Israel
and the cause of peace in the
Middle East.
Clearly, Grauel ia a remarkable
man a WASP minister,
wedded to Israel, who spends
time in Jerusalem each year and
who is a true friend of the Jewa.
It is a shame that he failed to find
a writer who could do justice to
, his notable story.
Readers Write
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
We were all deeply saddened
by the recent loss of Senator
Henry M. Jackson.
In his more than 40 years in
Congress, "Scoop" Jackson was
the epitome of a dedicated, ideal-
istic and supremely effective
public servant. His far-reaching
social and humanitarian con-
cerns, his devotion to the finest
values of American life, and his
exemplary grasp of the most
crucial issues of our times have
earned him a unique place in the
esteem of his countrymen and the
respect of all nations.
We are all aware of Henry
Jackson's important efforts and
valiant stand in the struggle to
win freedom for Soviet Jewry. He
cared deeply about the Jewish
people and the State of Israel. He
was a steadfast champion of
Israel's cause and an influential
voice on its behalf. We are all
diminished by his passing.
In recent days we have
received many inquiries from
admirers of Senator Jackson
about how best to honor his
memory. This outpouring of
tribute has convinced us that a
most appropriate and significant
act would be to establish a forest
in Israel as a memorial. Thus the
Senator's name will be linked
forever with the people and the
Land of Israel. This will be a
memorial worthy of,the Senator.
All contributions for this
memorial forest can be forwarded
to your local Jewish National
Fund office.

Saffa Present Map
A rare and unique antique map
of "The Forty Year's Travels of
the Children of Israel" was
presented to Congregation Kol
Ami by Loretta and Ed Saff upon
their recent return from Europe.
The map was printed in 1689 by
British cartographer, publisher,
bookseller and heraldic writer
Richard Blome. His work flour-
ished in the 1650's, and he died in
The map depicts the journey of
the Israelites in the wilderness
after their departure from Egypt,
and their entrance into the land
of Israel. The names of many
Biblical cities are noted as well as
the borders of the twelve tribes.
Also noted are the locations of
many Biblical events, such as
where Blome thought Jonah was
swallowed by a large fish.
Dr. Saff is a collector of an-
tique maps and came across this
one in England. He and his wife
had their discovery beautifully
framed and donated it to the
Congregation where it will be
hung in a place of distinction in
Kol Ami's lobby.
Pediatric Seminars Set
At St. Joseph's Hospital
Competitive sports are usually
healthy outlets for children.
Sometimes, however, the pres-
sures are too great for young
competitors. "The Child As An
Athlete," an adult lecture at St.
Joseph's Hospital, will take a
closer look at youngsters and
their sporting activities.
Set for Thursday, Nov. 3, the
lecture will feature Joseph M.
Garfunkel, MD, as speaker.
Garfunkel is the acting chairman
of the Department of Pediatrics
at Southern Illinois University.

There's No
Need To
Your back pains may result from
poor posture, physical strain or any
of the unnatural positions your body
goes through each day. Usually the
pain occurs because a nerve is pin-

should be treated by a chiropractor.

JCCs Take Hold In South America
NEW YORK The Jewish
Community Center movement
has taken hold in South America.
That was a major finding of a
10-day mission made up of
Esther Leah Ritz, of Milwaukee,
president of both JWB and the
World Confederation of Jewish
Community Centers; Arthur
Rotman, New York, JWB execu-
tive vice president; Haim Zipori,
Jerusalem, director general of the
Israel Association of Community
Centers and executive director of
the World Confederation, and
Silvie Rossie, JDC community
worker in Rome.
Mrs. Ritz and Rotman report-
ed on their trip to the JWB Board
of Directors meeting on Sunday,
Oct. 9 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel
in New York City. Rotman
asserted that they were most
. impressed by the Cordoba Jewish
Community Center in Argentina.
"The Center in Cordoba is for
all groups in the Jewish com-
munity," Rotman said. "It really
cuts across all socio-economic
lines. There isn't the kind of
separation that we witnessed in
Buenos Aires, where people
whose parents and grandparents
had come from a particular
country in Europe and had set up
their own Community Center.
The Cordoba Center, in
philosophy and practice, is the
Center for the total Jewish com-
munity in Cordoba."
Mrs. Ritz said, "Cordoba was
also the only community in Latin
America that I have ever been in
where the Center people with
whom we met convened a session
for us with a rabbi. That was
remarkable. We met with a
young Conservative rabbi who
obviously works very closely
with the leadership of that Center
as they work with other rabbis.
That's in sharp contrast to the
secularism of the Centers in
Buenos Aires, where there are
people who know rabbis but it
would never occur to them to
connect a Center delegation with
rabbis for discussion."
. "Jewish Community Centers
in South American are not by any
means where Centers in North
America are," Mrs. Ritz added.
"But over the last 10 years they
have been consciously moving in
the direction of what we call
Jewish Community Center in
terms of service. They are
making efforts to serve pre-
school children. Many of the
South American Centers never
had programs for the elderly until
recently, but they are now
programming, in some cases
programming very excitedly for
oder adults. They all have very
substantial artistical education
facilities and they are gradually
strengthening their general
Jewish educational cultural
Mrs. Ritz said that all the
Jewish Community Centers in
South America except one the
Hebraica in Buenos Aires
began as sports clubs.
"The Hebraica began as a
cultural institution," Mrs. Ritz
explains. "It has an enormous
^.-cultural program and Jewish
cultural program that compares
favorably with that of the 92nd
St. YM-YWHA in New York
City, our premier cultural in-
stitution. The Hebraica is also
probably one of the outstanding
' Centers inthe world in children's
Jewish educational culture
In reaction to the "severe
economic and political diffi-
culties" faced by Jews in
Argentina, the Centers
particularly in Buenos Aires
provide a "shell" around the
Jewish community, Mrs. Ritz
"They have formed this shell
to protect themselves from the
cold, bitter, economic and
political realities," Rotman said.
"In forming the shell around
themselves, they have planned
for every conceivable activity
that one could think of, so that at
no point would any person need
to leave the protection of that
"It is a shell to keep them-
selves and their children
especially isolated from the
general community," Mrs. Ritz
In Brazil, the JCC in Sao Paulo
is one of the largest Centers
anywhere in the world, the two
"There are many JCCs in
North America which have as
large or larger membership than
Sao Paulo," Rotman said, "but
these North American Centers
make use of a number of facilities
in different neighborhoods in the
city. In Sao Paulo, in one
building, the Center serves some
25,000 members, all of whom are
Mrs. Ritz observed that the
JCCs in South America have
changed very substantially since
her first visit there years ago.
"For one thing," she said,
"The Centers in Buenos Aires are
the largest in Latin America. As
a group they add up to more than
all the rest in Latin America.
They are now working together,
which was not the case before.
They are doing in-service training
together, they're discussing
problems together that s a
"They're still not working in
the way that, say, the United
Jewish Ys of New York are or
certainly not the way the Jewish
Community Center of Chicago
does where each Center is part ot
a system in that whole com-
"I don't know whether they
ever will work together because
of their different histories and
ethnic bases although that was
true of the Centers and Ys in New
York, for example, many years
ago. They had their own histories
and identities and they have
become Jewish Community
Centers in one system or several
"Maybe because of my North
American experience, I would
like to see more integration of
South American efforts because
in spite of everything including
the change of name they call
themselves Jewish Community
Centers they fail in certain
important respects to be that.
"Each Center still has its own
special clientele which is not a
grographic matter. It may be
ethnic, it may be socio-economic,
it may be a mixture of those
"It's still a class society, and,
therefore, the Centers are not
serving the whole communitv.
More Growth Expected
For Hillel Foundation
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation,
the Jewish student center on col-
lege campuses, continues to
grow. With a now thriving chap-
ter at the University of South
Florida, and the newly created
chapter at the University of
Tampa, an outreach at Hillsbor-
ough Community College is in
the making.
Dr. Steven Kaplan, Hillel di-
rector, notes that with the Jewish
population of the Tampa Bay
area expanding at so rapid a rate,
the need for Jewish students,
both resident and non-resident,
to have a "home" where they can
experience their religious identity
with peers in a positive light is
Offering social, cultural, reli-
gious, and counseling programs
to Jewish students from all back-
grounds of Judaism, Hillel plans
to continue it's successful pro-
gramming, this past weekend was
Weekend Getaway at Chinsegut,
Brooksville, Fla. Friday evening
services and Sunday morning
bagel brunches are held weekly.
