bllow Jews in Tampa and Hills-

feaffirm our ancient tradition of
kedukkah by supporting our
Ifort to provide social services
ihich make an important dif-
pence in the lives of so many
fcws." said 1984 Federation
fompaign Chairman John
Osterweil. "This year, more than
any in the last two decades, the
needs facing Jews are especially
pressing. The people of Israel in
particular, are trying to cope with
an overwhelming economic crisis
which has reaped 200 percent
inflation in 1983 and threatens
the very survival of the Jewish
nation's social service network.
We must be sensitive and res-
ponsive do all we can to help
by increasing our regular
campaign pledges a bare
minimum of 20 percent."
Locally, the continued growth
of our three major recipient
agencies: the Hillel School of
Tampa, the Jewish Community
Center and the Tampa Jewish
Social Service is aided by a
growth in the annual campaign.
Hillel School provides a viable
mixture of Jewish and secular
education which enhances the
Jewish quality of the lives of the
students, their families and the
entire community. Lifeapan
programming for the very young
in a day care and pre-school,
teenagers, young adults, and a
very extensive seniors program
are available through the Jewish
Community Center. The Tampa
Jewish Social Service provides
counseling from a Jewish pers-
pective to individuals and
families with personal crises,
large and small, as well as
providing personal growth
programs for groups from
specific segments of the Jewish
community. Vital dollars from
the Federation-UJA 1984
Campaign provide the marginal
differences which affect the
quality of these and the myriad of
other agencies it helps support.
This year's Super Sunday Co-
chairpeople are Merilyn Burke,
Neal Crystal and Debbie
Gitomer. Shifts will be at two-
hour intervals preceded by a 45-
minute orientation session. When

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
Jewish War Veterans is a serv-
ice organization. The main func-
tion is to help men and women in
and out of service. Our local post
is compiling a list of all veterans
in the Tampa Bay area. This is
not an attempt to recruit mem-
bers for the post. Many veterans
have come to this area with only
one member of their family or
alone. In case of an emergency,
we will have on file the name, ad-
dress, birthday, rank, serial
number, branch of service, in-
surance. VA hospital number,
social security number and last
wishes. This is a service that is
needed in our community. The
JWV is undertaking this without
charge. All information will be
held in strictest confidence. All
veterans are urged to participate
in this project.
Please send the above informa-
tion to Mary Surasky. 13906

nings. 962-1466.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
Early in December I under-
went quadruple bypass surgery.
I want to thank all my friends,
everywhere, for all their cards,
good wishes and prayers: also for
the meals and goodies and help in
many other ways since coming
home from the hospital. It was
heartwarming to receive so many
of your good wishes.
Recovery is progressing very
well and I hope to resume all my
former activities soon.

A nation is regarded as a com-
munity of people with a common
history, culture, language, and
association with a particular
The Ashkenazim, the Jews liv-
ing in Central Europe, has those
characteristics. Music was an
important aspect of their culture.
Ashkenazic music at the start of
the Classical Era, was charac-
terized for the most part by reli-
gious and folk music. By the
close of the 19th century, how-
ever, European Jews expressed
their cultural identity in forms
ranging from liturgical to
operatic and symphonic expres-
All Jewish music has its roots
in the musical structure of the
liturgy. One element of this
structure came from the Biblical
Cantillations. While another was
the system of Nusach Haftillah
(melodies of prayer). Since the
Middle Ages, Families have sung
"Zemirot" (Table Songs) which
often reflected the musical
character of their locality in Cen-
tral Europe. Torah and Haftarah
portions were conscientiously
learned by each Bar-Mitzvah stu-
dent. Marriage ceremonies too,
included songs, the ceremony of
the seven blessings, followed by
informal singing by friends and
family. Yiddish folk songs dealt
with various subjects, covering

different phases o\ Vi\e.
Although Ashkenazim had
many national songs, there were
comparatively few dealings with
nature. Jews were confined to
small towns and villages during
the ghetto days, and rarely had
the oportunity for close contact
with nature and its beauty.
Geshem and Tal songs (prayers
for rain and dew) were among the
few nature songs the Ashkenazim
sang. Originally part of the syn-
agogue service, they were sung
by East European Jews every
day. Many of the later Yiddish
folk songs developed in Eastern
Europe were taken to Palestine
where they were popular among
the "Halutzim," translated into
Hebrew. It is interesting to know
that Jews living in the villages of
Eastern Europe produced many
love songs in Yiddish.
NEW YORK The full story
of the Jewish Federations and
their present status as the lead-
ing institution in American Jew-
ish life is told in Philip Bern-
stein's To Dwell in Unity, pub-
lished recently by the Jewish
Publication Society. Bernstein
served as chief executive officer
of the Council of Jewish Feder-
ations from 1955 until his retire-
ment in 1979.
The record of Federation
growth and accomplishments is
presented in detail, painting a
portrait of the North American
Jewish community in action. It
sets out Federation approaches,
action and allocations in virtually
every aspect of Jewish life by the
more than 200 such organizations
now flourishing throughout
North America.
More than a simple presenta-
tion of facts and figures. To
Dwell in Unity is a manifesto of
organized and cohesive American
Jewry, setting forth its priorities,
it1- values, and its strategies. A
primary concern is Israel, con-
centrating on support for her
peace and security. In the area of
domestic services, the entire
spectrum of Jewish life has been
oivered education, culture.
Life Sentences
For Ex-Nazi
BONN (JTA) The State
Prosecutor of Hesse has demand-
ed eight life sentences for Her-
mann Ebender. a 74-Year-old
resident of Fulda identified by
witnesses as the murderer of
eight Jewish inmates in the Dora
Mittelbau concentration camp in
Thueringen shortly before Ger-
many's surrender in World War
Ebender, a gypsy and himself a
camp inmate, turned collabor-
ator. The prosecution charges
that he murdered the Jewish in-
mates for no motive other than
enjoyment of the crime. In two
instances he acted alone and in
sue he had accomplices. The kil-
lings occurred between January-
March, 1945.
Ebender has been living in
obscurity in Fulda since the war.
When he was arrested in Novem-
ber, 1982, he claimed mistaken
identity. But he was identified by
49 witnesses who appeared at his
Jewish community centers,
health and vocational services,
and family and social services.
The key to Federations' ef-
fectiveness, Bernstein points out,
has been the quality of its
volunteer leaders and profes-
sional staff. This meant not only
attracting the best people, but in
providing the essential training
for fulfilling the comprehensive

tinuation of an earlier JPS book,

summarized in the words of Boris
Smolar, Editor-in-Chief Emeritus
of the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency: "Vividly presents the

Rodeph Sholom Holds Torah Study
Sessions Early Monday Mornings
The study of Torah supersedes
all other endeavors." our sages
tell us. Yet today, unlike the
past, it is not necessary to for-
swear all other activity. Every
Monday morning. Rabbi T. Brod.
Scholar-in Residence at Rodeph
Sholom, conducts a 30 minute
Torah study session immediately
after the 7:15 minyan and the fol-
lowing se'udah.
During the sessions Rabbi
Brod, a veritable gold mine of
Jewish ethos, law and tradition
conducts an informal and wide-
ranging discussion based upon
the Parshah of the week, sum-
marizing lessons from many
commentators and sages as well
as the Midrashim and G marra.
Why, for example, in Parshat
Sh'mot, is the lineage of Moses
defined through naming both his
father and his mother, who was
his father's aunt? Or why. is
Parshat Va-yera, does the Torah
refer to 'Moses and Aaron' one
place and 'Aaron and Moses'
another place, even in the same
sentence? What is the proper
context of the prophecy of Isaiah
so frequently used as a Christo-
logical omen? 41
These types of questions, as
well as those more relevant to
modern life, are considered and
discussed in the light of trad-
itional Jewish teaching. For an
enlightening half hour of divrei
Torah, come to Rodeph Sholom
at 7:15 a.m. on Mondays.
"While we are not obligated to
complete the work (study of
Torah), neither are we free to
desist from it," according to the
Pirkei Avot, and this is certainly
a most enjoyable way to pursue
those studies.

Ironically, this one-of-a-kind
collection of religious artifacts,
documents and other items was
the result of a Nazi program. In
1938, Reinhard Heydrich,
Hitler's administrator for
Bohemia, Moravia and Prague,
cabled Berlin to request permis-
sion to confiscate all property
from Czechoslovakia's 358 Jew-
ish communiies in order to estab-
lish a "Museum to an Extinct
Race." Heydrich regarded
Prague as the ideal site in which
to show an Aryanized world how
the "decadent" race had lived, for
the city had been one of Europe's
chief centers of Jewish life.
Only an estimated 25,000 out
of 362,000 of Czechoslovakia's
Jews survived the Holocaust, but
they left a remarkable legacy in
the Czechoslovak State Collec-
tion: 95,000 items spanning six
centuries, which have been stored
in Prague's Jewish quarter since
1938 and have been preserved
intact as a national historic
The exhibition will reveal to
the United States how this vast
and important collection of Jew-
ish ceremonial art came into
existence and how the rich
historical, artistic and cultural
heritage of European Jewry is
preserved in these objects.
"The Precious Legacy" in-
cludes 330 objects which reflect
the scope, quality and artistic
significance of the Prague collec-
tion, the rich history of Bohemian
and Moravian Jewry and the
relationship between Jewish art
and ritual observances. The
presentation of the exhibition's
objects creates a timeline
through Jewish history, from the
Middle Ages through the Holo-
caust, in a variety of artistic
media textiles, sih/erworks
and other precious metals, glass-
ware, paintings, books and
manuscrips. The setting for "The
Precious Legacy" is the famous
Jewish Quarter in Prague, a com-
munity of homes, schools, six
synagogues, town halls and a
historic Jewish cemetery, all of
which were established between
the Middle Ages and the end of
the 19th century.

Pacific Alchemy
By Dr. Judith Ochahorn
Is "Peace" an impossible
dream? Just yesterday everyone
said that nuclear war was impos-
sible, unthinkable. Today it is
thinkable. We are preparing for a
possible limited nuclear war. But,
iust yesterday it was impossible
to have airman Goodman
released. Today, he is free.
The one thing that is impossi-
ble, so eloquently demonstrated
by Cervantes, is for one man
alone to right the wrongs of the
world. Together we can learn how
to span cultural and ideological
differences, to increase under-
standing, to work towards a state
of peace.
Dr. Juditi. Ochshorn who has
taught International Relations at
the University of South Florida
can give guidance towards these
goals when she addresses the
Hadassah Study Group on the
Peace Academy. This meeting is
open to the public on Monday
evening, Jan. 16, at 7:30 p.m., in

beard of "Hillel." not many know
exactly what the organization
.stands for. what its purposes
[are, and how it is able to hold it-
Iself successfully above the many
(organizations often found on
To begin, Hillel is multi-
I faceted in purpose. Simply
{stated, it is the one place on cam-
[pus where Jewish students from
all backgrounds, levels of learn-
ing, and degrees of observance,
can gather together with other
I Jewish students and share cul-
tural, social, and religious expe-
Iriences together, Whether one
comes from a strictly observant
home, or from an environment
where Judaism was never prac-
ticed, a home is found at Hillel.
Warmth, camaraderie, and a
sense of belonging is all too
important to thousands of stu-
dents away from home, some for
I the first time. These feelings can
.'experienced at Hillel.
Hillel goes a bit further, how-
ever. In addition to the tradition-
al-aged college student, Hillel
services and functions are availa-
ble to those "above-age" stu-
dents on campuses, as well as the
traditional college-age student
who for whatever reason or
reasons is not attending college
at the present time. Religious
services are offered Shabbat and
holidays, with many campuses
holding two or more separate
Nervices in order to accommodate
the different preferences found.
These services are certainly
meaningful year round, but they
take on a special significance for
the High Holy Days, where so
many find themselves away from
the familiar surroundings of their
own synagogues.
Social functions provide stu-
dents the opportunity to meet
potential partners, in addition to
simply providing fun and good
times Although Hillel is not a
dating service, many a romance
has blossomed and grown with a
ficers discuss programming and
business matters with the di-
rector, and receive an education
on top of their college learning.
Questions may now arise as to
who pays for all of this, who
staffs Hillel, and hopefully, how
can one help?
Hillel funding procedures vary
from state to state. In Florida,
Hillel Foundations of Florida the
national parent organization,
B'nai B'rith Hillel, and local Fed-
erations all participate in the
funding process. The Hillel Di-
rector is hired following prelimin-
ary screening by the state di-
rector and interviewed with the
local area board, often comprised
of community leaders, faculty,
and students.
Larger campuses often have
full or part time staff as well,
hired by the campus director.
Depending on the age of the indi-
vidual Foundation, size of Jewish
student population, and available
funds, either a permanent Hillel
House is found, or a temporary
house until a permanent facility
is built.
Before answering the last of
the above questions, let us focus
away from the more general as-
pects of Hillel, and turn our at-
tention to our local chapters. The
first Hillel chapter in the area
was formed at the University of
South Florida some seven years
ago. After initial growing pains,
the USF chapter today finds it-
self with a pleasant problem-the
temporary facility it now oc-
cupies is inadequate to service
the many students now utilizing
The current Director, Dr.
Steven Kaplan, embarked on a
two phase process upon his arriv-
al in August of 1983. The first
part was to overcome the nega-
tive image many students have of
Hillel nationwide, i.e., a place to
pray and be told to be better
Jews. Some students will have
nothing to do with Hillel simply
because their parents urge them
to become active. For these and
other reasons, the desirability of
Hillel had to be emphasized. The
Hillel start. Cultural expression house was painted, cleaned, and
and festivity at holiday time is redesigned. Acquired
many things, the programming
One is wise to identify the
'kind' of Jew he has on campus,
and begin programming accord-
ingly. "The USF student is not
the same as you will find at
Brooklyn College or UCLA. Un-
less you can identify the needs
and wants, programming efforts
are doomed to failure." Accurate-
ly identifying his students needs,
programming began, with the re-
sults most visible in the total
number of students being served
now in the hundreds. The actual
paid membership has
quadrupled. From a fifteen per-
son get together over bagels on
Sunday, to a capacity attendance
at the week-end get-away, to
standing room only crowds at
High Holy Days, the students
are pleased with what they're
getting. It's a common sight at
Hillel to see Dr. Kaplan (Steve to
his students) with a cue stick or
ping-pong paddle in hand, dis-
cussing matters of importance
with students or simply enjoying
the "thrill of victory, and the
agony of defeat."
Tampa is growing, and as can
still another side of Hillel, with
campuses the world over cel-
ebrating in much the same ways
those occasions we hold dear. All
is not light-hearted merry-mak-
ing at Hillel. For the more

be expected, the Jewish student
population grows along with it.
Seeing this trend and pursuing it.
Dr. Kaplan met with student and
staff representatives at the Un-
iversity of Tampa, and as a re-
sult, a Hillel at the University of
Tampa was officially established.
"Here, too, identification of your
student is essential," states Dr.
Kaplan. "The UT student is
somewhat different than the USF
student, and his-her unique needs
must be identified and be served.
The private school is not a state
university, and UT's Jew is
definitely different than Yale's or
Harvard's. If Hillel is to fulfill
its purpose of serving the needs
of Jewish students, sensitivity to
these issues is essential." Now
three months old, Hillel at the U.
of T. enjoys the benefits of its
own autonomous programming,
as well as many ioint ventures

moved, as was a separate chapel

providing a nosh to anyone

Dr. Kaplan then began phase
two of his plan-to put together a
group from individuals. This may
appear to be a simple task, but in
reality, it took more work than
anything else. A positive rela-
tionship had to be established
between director and student,
which was carried over to student
to student. Once the students be-
come more familiar with each
other and saw they could share
