January 27 is the date of Super
Sunday '86, a day that Jews join
together all over the United
States and raise money to
support Jewish agencies both
locally and overseas.
Here, in the Tampa Jewish
Federation, it is a day of
camaraderie and excitement. One
room of the Jewish Community
Center is filled with phones, and
rows of volunteers sit side-by-
side with fellow members of their
synagogues and organizations, as
they offer their Jewish friends
and neighbors the opportunity to
make their pledges that will keep
the community strong and
Make Super Sunday a family

nursery where volunteers will

are busy at the telephones. Teen-

of knowing that they do their
share also, and serve as "run-

The Rescue Of
It haa bean widely reported in the general media that prem-
ature publicity brought an untimely halt to the airlift rescue of
Because of the delicate nature of the operation, The Tampa
Jewish Federation and The Jewish Floridian chose not to report
on the rescue efforts over the past weeks.
The issue remains a sensitive one, and in the hope that means
will be found to complete the rescue, we will not print anything
that might endanger these efforts.
In the meantime, the Jewish Agency is deeply involved in
caring for those Ethiopian Jews who have reached safety. We
can all take pride in the fact that Israel, despite her many pro-
blems, continues to place the highest priority on human life
rather than economic concerns.

Ethiopia's Jews, cut off from
Judaism long before the Talmud
was written or the events of
Chanukah and Purim took place,
remained a community apart
from Ethiopia's neighboring
tribes venerating the Torah
and fervently following pre
rabbinic Jewish law and tradi
Over the centuries, travelers
made reference to a "Jewish
tribe" in Ethiopia, but Ethiopian
Jews were not "discovered'' by
the modem world until late in the
19th century. A hundred-year
debate began among the rabbis
about the Jewishness of these
strange Jews from Ethiopia an
argument that was finally re-
solved in 1973. when both Israel's
then-chief rabbis formally recog-
nized them as Jews.
That recognition was followed
in 1975 by a declaration fron
Israel's government that Ethio
pian Jews were entitled to enter
the Jewish State under the Law
The Jewish Agency, however,
had been in active contact with
Ethiopian Jewry long before. As
early as 1955. they had brought
27 Ethiopian youngsters to
Israel, trained them as teachers
in the Youth Aliyah village of
Kfar Batya and helped them back
The influence of these teachers
was significant: it blended a
vibrant tradition of Messianism
with modern Zionism and imbued
young and old in Ethiopia's
Jewish community with so
strong a yearning to return to the
Land that thousands willingly
risk the long dangerous journey

You Can Save A Life!
10,000 Ethiopian Jews can be rescued from starvation and persecution. This is an unparalleled
moment in history. It is as if we could have saved 10,000 Jews from Auschwitz.
We have the historic opportunity to resettle Jews in Israel. Operation Moses has started and will
continue until 10,000 Ethiopian Jews are safely in Israel.
Despite its financial crisis, the State of Israel will shoulder the responsibility and many of the
costs. Israel cannot rescue these Jews alone. The American Jewish community has responded by
committing $60,000,000 to be paid by March 31,1985.
For each $6,000 one Jewish life will be saved.
We have a moral imperative to discharge this obligation. We cannot stand by and watch Jews
die especially when we have the means to save them. If the words NEVER AGAIN are to have any
meaning, we must respond.
SAVE A LIFE SAVE LIVES!
"IF ONE SAVES ONE SOUL OF ISRAEL, IT IS AS IF HE SAVED THE WHOLE WORLD."
