ent attorney and Jewish com-
munal leader has listed the prin-
ciples on which agreement
between Blacks and Jews was a
"precondition of friendship,
cooperation and mutual respect."
Addressing the Quadrennial
Convention of B'nai B'rith
International, Morris B. Abram,
honorary president of the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee,
described the essentials as
The assignment to Blacks of
"numerical slices of oppor-
Black and Jewish leaders
must "not espouse racism or anti-
Semitism" or fail to denounce
those who do.
"First, anti-Semitism, as
racism, is more usually asso-
ciated with the unrefined mind
the Archie Bunker mentality
which self-defines the approved
group and lashes out indis-
criminately against others.
Second, anti-Semitism has not
since Hitler's downfall been
propagated as rationalized ideo-
logy which historically has been
its most virulent and ravaging
Paradoxically, Abram added,
surveys show that anti-Semitism
in the Black community is now
more apt to originate in the intel-
ligentsia than with the common
people and to be expressed in
ideology rather than personal ill-
belief that some Black leaders
had not fulfilled their duty of
combatting anti-Semitism, as
enjoined on them by Martin
Luther King, Jr.
"The silence of these voices
makes many who want to con-
tinue the Black-Jewish walk
together increasingly ap-
prehensive," said Abram.
* Jewish traditional
"abhorrence" of quotas should be
considered in the light of united
Jewish support of affirmative
action programs to seek out,
educate, train, employ and
promote those whom society has
portunities are doled out by race
or creed, the injustice creates
outrage and fuels conflict,"
Abram asserted. "No one who
reads human nature accurately
can doubt that domestic
tranquility can be preserved if
blacks are assigned numerical
slices of opportunity, now joined
in claims by Hispanics, Asians,
native Americans, Southern
Europeans and this summer by
Hassidic Jews."
The American formula for reli-
gious harmony is simple, Abram
declared: forbid the government,
at any level, to practice religious
preferences, leaving zealots,
agnostics and atheists without a
coercive power of government.
Equally important, he added,
"is the tenet that government
. #^t must be neutral as to race, a
Hillel School to Celebrate Dedication of New Building JS^tSLftittS
The Hillel School of Tampa will
share a very special event with
the community on Sunday, Sept.
16, when dedication ceremonies
for its new classroom building
will be held at 12:46 p.m.
The school, which has offered
quality secular and Judaic
education for 14 years, has been
housed in Congregation Rodeph
Sholom since its inception. The
school serves students in grades
The construction of this new
facility was achieved through the
cooperative efforts of many
groups and individuals, whose
support will be recognized at the
dedication. When Congregation
Beth Israel merged with Rodeph
Sholom, it designated that its
building should serve to further
Jewish education for the children
of the Hillel School.
The subsequent sale of the
building provided a major
portion of the funds required to
construct the new school.
Additional financial support
came from pledges to the suc-
cessful capital gifts campaign
sponsored by the Tampa Jewish
Federation, which also provided
for improvements to the facilities
of the Jewish Community Center.
The center, for its part, fur-
nished the site for the new
structure, which is located on the
northeast corner of the JCC
campus at 501 S. Habana
Avenue. The building, which
consists of nine classrooms,
including a science laboratory,
and administrative office, was
completed in time for the opening
of the 1984-86 school year.
As Stanford R. Solomon, Hillel
School building committee chair-
man said, "Together we have
reached a major milestone. We
have brought this project to
fruition on-time arid under-
budget, opening new oppor-
tunities for future growth and
development of the Hillel School.'
The theme of the day is
"Building Our Future Together."
Dedication Chairman Henrietta
(Cyndi) Sflverman said, "By
honoring the community, we are
proud to stress our interdepen-
dence with it. Hillel, through the
education of our children, aims to
provide a foundation of Jewish
identity, learning, and communal
responsibility for the next
generation. We have appreciated
the support which we have
received and wish to share the joy
of this accomplishment with
everyone who has cared about
Hillel's future."
In addition to the formal
ceremonies, which will include
the affixing of exterior mezuzot,
there will be a tour of the
facilities, conducted by upper-
grade students, and an informal
reception sponsored by the
parents' association.
Additional information about
the Hillel School or the
dedication ceremonies may be
obtained by calling the office at
community during the long
terri' fight against white
sup jy an original form of
racial preference."
STATING THAT people could
not walk together when Blacks
were shackled by the chains of
slavery and later by Jim Crow,
Abram said they were equally
unable to walk together when
anyone was hobbled on account
of religion or race, while others

As you are probably aware,
President Reagan recently signed
into law an "Equal Access" mea-
sure, which directs public schools
to allow religious, as well as poli-
tical and philosophical student
groups to meet on school
premises immediately before or
after instructional periods. In
addition, the House amended an
Education Appropriations bill
(HR 11) to include a provision
stating that "no state or local
agency shall deny individuals in
public schools the opportunity to
participate in moments of silent
prayer." The Senate has not yet
taken up this measure. These
developments, although distress-
ing, underscore the need for vigil-
ance on our part. If you have
children, please talk to them
about the extent to which religion
is allowed into their schools. If
you have questions or concerns,
please call us at the ADL.
In keeping with our support for
the doctrine of the separation of
church and state, the three
Florida ADL regional offices
have worked with Secretary of
State George Firestone to distri-
bute our code of fair campaign
practices. The code, which was
mailed in an election packet sent
to all candidates for state posi-
tions, including judgeships, calls
on the candidate to "condemn
any appeal to prejudice based on
race, creed, national origin or
gender" amongst other things. A
copy of the code was to be signed
by each candidate and returned
to the Secretary of State's office.
As we approach the holiday
period and the beginning of the
year for day school and religious
programs, administrators of
Jewish institutions are especially
sensitive to the need for appro-
priate security measures. The
ADL and the Tampa Police
Department will be sponsoring a
security conference for congrea-
gational rabbis and executive
directors of Jewish institutions to
discuss recommended security
procedures and suggestions for
action should an incident of
vandalism or harrassment occur.
When a local radio station that
subscribes to the tapes of the
National Press Club ran the com-
plete text of Minsiter Louis
Farrakhan's remarks to the press
club in Washington, the ADL
sent a letter to the station
manager expressing our concern.
We said that we "recognize the
role of the media is difficult one,
which includes the balancing of
responsible journalism with the
people's right to know.' We
also reiterated the remarks of
Nathan Perlmutter, ADL's
National Director, who said, "It
is high time for the press to break
the round of outrageous ravings
from Farrakhan and indignant
responses from Jews. It can do so
simply by refusing to serve as his
megaphone." Rather than serve
as an agent of censorship, the
ADL focused in its letter on the
station'8 responsibility to have
balanced Farrakhan's statements
with information about his back-
ground. We enclosed a copy of a
recent ADL research report on
Farrakhan. The League received
an immediate response from the
station manager in the form of a
letter which stated "I can appre-
ciate your antipathy for his
remarks, as well as your under-
standing of the difficult position
we are in when a program series
that we carry offers such contro-
versial material. I understand
that the purpose of your writing
was to provide us with in-
formation on Mr. Farrakhan,
which might be helpful in future
program decisions. Thank you for
bringing this to my attention. I
will see that it is circulated to the
programming staff."

Tampa Welcomes Young Judaea
Young Judaea is an
autonomous Zionist Youth
Movement for American Jewish
Youth. It is the only national
program sponsored by Hadassah,
the Women's Zionist Organ-
ization of America. Over 10,000
young people are enrolled in this
program across the country. In
the Florida-Puerto Rico Region,
otherwise known as Or Hadarom-
Light of the South, 950 Judaeans
make up the largest Region in the
United States.
The Regional Director, Lisa
Synalovski, is a "product" of the
Movement, and has been in-
volved for over 10 years. Her love
for the Movement made her the
perfect candidate for the Director
position. Now beginning her
second year, Lisa and her staff
have returned to the Tampa
Jewish community.
The major thrust of the program-
ming is the development of Jew-
ish consciousness and the
cultivation of a dedication to
Zionism. Young Judaea is proud
of its authentic Israel-centered
program. The Movement gives
its members a rich vareity of
Jewish experiences which will
encourage them to make a
lifelong commitment to the
people of Israel and the State of
Is Young Judaea just like all
the other youth groups in South
Florida? Definitely not! In ad-
dition to being a Zionist Move-
ment. Young Judaea is Peer Led.
The Ofarim (children in grades 4-
6) and Tsofim (grades 7 and 8)
clubs are led by high school age
Madrichim (leaders). All of these
leaders are required to be active
members of Bogrim Young
Judaea, which is the club for 9-
12th graders. Young Judaea
leaders to through vigorous
leadership training seminars as
well as monthly refresher
courses. Each leader's program-
ming is closely monitored by
Area Coordinators and Robin
Mendelson, who is the Regional
Ofarim-Tsofim Coordinator.
To ensure the effectiveness of
the educational programming in
the Movement, there are two
other professionals who work as
part of the office staff of Young
Judaea. Zeev Shafrir is the
Shaliach or messenger from Isra-
el who came here with his wife
Maureen and two children to help
encourage the chanichim
(members) to participate in
various Israel programs that
Young Judaea sponsors. Michelle
Rapchik is the Assistant Director
of Or Hadarom. She is a senior at
the University of Miami where
she is working on degrees in
Psychology and Judaic Studies.
Michelle and Zeev work together
to ensure effective and creative
programming in Young Judaea.
Judaeans believe that social
interaction with other Jewish
youth is important, but it is just
not enough. The Movement tries
to instill in its members pride in
themselves, their families, their
country, and their people. Most
important Young Judaea believes
that our commitment to our-
selves as a people is a highlighted
factor in convincing their
members of the elucid enemy,
This year, once again, Young

Nutcracker Sweets, an incredible
array of delicious imported nuts,

among some Black intellectuals,
Abram said they had collabor-
ated with some politicians in
equating Zionism with racism.
Through this strategy, he said,
they were challenging "the very
essence of the Jewish State and
the honor and integrity of Israeli
supporters including those of
world Jewry."
"The passion of those who
cooked up this ideological plot,"
Abram stated, "was to brand
from Page 1
Zionist meaning Jewish and
Israeli as racists, and thus as
violators of the International
Treaty declaring racism to be a
crime. This has been the basis of
all the subsequent efforts to paint
Israel as an outlaw nation, to be
driven from the United Nations

EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian:
Recently, my husband and I
were two of 14 people who
traveled to Israel with the Jewish
National Fund. It was a super
trip which served as a trem-
endous education to most of us
who had never been there before.
Some of our highlights on the
trip were the visit to the Absorp-
tion Center at Ashod: There we
met a charming Israeli lady who
gave us the background and
meaning of an Absorption
Center. We then went to a class-
room at the center to personally
meet with the new immigrants
who were about to complete a
class session. We came into the
room just prior to the welcoming i
of the Sabbath, and there was a
festive feeling around us. We
were invited into the room to
personally chat with the recent
arrivals. I met and talked with a
young couple from Romania who
came to be part of the ever-
growing Israel.
Our JNF group was warmly
received as we interrupted their
regular class activity. There were
many people from all over the
world learning Hebrew and all
the vital things necessary to
become part of this very vital
society. Everyone was excited
about their new land and all were
full of enthusiasm. We soon
joined in song and dance.
Another special treat during
our two week visit was the visit
to Kibbutz. Beit Haemek.
The Israeli we met at Mitzpeh
Hua was to me the most out-
standing personality we met
during the entire trip. He repre
sents in every way the true
frontiersman and the most heroic
Israelite in every sense of the
word. The job he does and the life
style he has chosen for himself
and his family is epic in propor-
tion to the rest of the world.
Mitrpeh Hila is one of 18 new
mitzpin (outposts) on Israel's
northern borders where the land
has been redeemed by the JNF
for settlement by young Jewish
Meeting Menachem
Perlmutter, Director of
Engineering for the Negev, was
another special highlight. He is a
man with a very special story to
tell and he was so full of facts and
information, it is difficult for me
to relate the new and fascinating
agriculture he shared with us
mutations of plants and surface
irrigation. New kinds of fruit,
better tomatoes, and unbeliev-
able shelf-life for a new garlic
(and after all, what is food
without garlic). The land in the
Negev is being readied for agri-
cultural development by the

couraging others to add their
names and commitment to the
highest level of giving. Once the
Capital Campaign has been
completed, donations from the
Founders Association members
and others will be utilized to

Did you see the front page that
told you to turn to this page? Or
did you find it by mistake? At
any rate, start looking for this
page every issue, as the Jewish
Community Center will be having
its very own space which will al-
low us to alert you, in depth, to
future programs at the JCC.
As time goes on we will see
what "columns" do the best job
in interpreting our Center to you.
Any feed back you care to give
would be most appreciated, and
should be channeled through
Terry Abrahams. 872-4451. We
hope that you have also read your
Fall Program Guide, have
realized the extend of our expan-
sion of programming (and this is
just the beginning, folks), and
have determined how you can be
a part of the Center, either by at-
tendiing classes ongoing activ-
ities, or one-time presentations.
Many have been detailed on this
page, but many have not so
look and join!
An original musical, "Noah's
Lark" will be presented by the
Center on Nov. 10 and 11. Audi-
tions for this, the beginning of a
theater group will be on Sunday,
Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.
Auditions will be at the Center in
the auditorium. Sheet music will
be provided, as will an accom-
panist, or you may bring your
own. If you want to dance, please
dress comfortably for a quick
evaluation of your skills. Previ-
ous experience is not necessary.
Also needed will be musicians,
backstage people such as make-
up, scenery, props, and costumes.
If you would like to help with
tickets, programs, etc., you may
1 attend auditions, but also may
just call in to Terry. This is your
chance to (excuse the expression)
"Ham it up" come have fun!
If you've never done Israeli
dancing, now is the time! A
group is forming at the Center
which will tentatively meet on
Wednesdays, at 8 starting Sept.
12. If this is not a good time for
you, please call and let Terry
know, as this is not etched in
granite at this point. All levels
are welcome. Beginners will be
taught, advanced people will be
accommodated through a request
period following teaching. Lots of
people have talked about trying
Israeli Dancing if it were avail-
able so now's the chance to put
your feet where your mouth is
We're not offering lessons in
Hebrew. But we are offering you
a chance to practice speaking by
forming a club that will meet
once a month. This club would be
for Israeli's if they wish, people
who have been to Israel and are
"losing" their Hebrew, people
who read the prayers, but would
like to speak, or whatever. This
club will be similar to the Fran-
caise Alliance, a social occasion
on which to speak Ivrit only. The
group may decide if they would
like to have further involvement.
Please come to the first meeting
on Sept. 19 at 7:30 to see if this is
a program you would be inter-
ested in.
