The Doctor is In. One very proud grandmother, Mrs. Rebecca
Haimovitz, tells us her granddaughter, Candi McCulloch,
40with honors in May, 1985, from the first class of the Dart-
mouth College-Brown University Program of Medicine. (She
completed her undergraduate work at Smith College.) Dr. Mc-
Culloch is presently at the Miriam Hospital in Providence, Rhode
Island for her medical-surgical internship. No wonder her family
is so proud of her.
A new generation. Mazol tov to Mathew and Kelly Ellman on
the birth of their son, Richard Joseph on December 22, 1985.
Richard, who weighed 8 pounds, 13 oz at birth, is lucky to have so
much family in Tampa. His grandparents are Annette and Barry
Ellman of Tampa and Mrs. Lorraine Walker of Zephryhills. His
oh-so-proud great-grandparents all live in Tampa, too: Emma and
Leo Gitlen and Betty and Murray Ellman. What a lucky guy!
At our service. The Civil Service Board of the City of Tampa
has announced its 1986 Board. Included are Chairman Leslie R.
Stein, senior attorney at GTE and Board member Gail R.
Hirsch, who is very active in civic activities. Morris N. Jenkins,
PHR, is Executive Director of the Board.
The Civil Service Board hears appeals of classified city
employees involving demotions suspensions and dismissals. The
members are appointed for three year terms: three by the mayor
and two by City Council per state law.
Artists. For the third year, Berkeley Prep art students have
had the opportunity to show their work in a professional setting.
The Bucklew-Goehring Gallery displayed approximately 50 pieces
by Berkeley students, some of which are available for purchase.
Among the Lower School artists whose works were selected for
exhibition were Amanda Sergay, daughter of Dr. Stephen and
Jane Sergay, and Jeff Pegler, son of Sandy and Errol Pegler.
Keep up the beautiful work.
Headmaster's List. Students at Tampa Preparatory School w-
ith an average of 90 or better are named to the Headmaster's List
at the end of the semester. Among the achievers on the list are
Ben Older, president of the freshman class and son of Dr. Jay
and Lois Older; sophomore Robert Solomon, son of Karen and
Marvin Solomon and senior Wendy Raber, daughter of Nancy
and Doug Raber. Congratulations to you all.
More Older Family Achievements. Merrill-Lynch Realty has
named Lois Older to the "Leading Edge Society," the highest
honor Merrill-Lynch bestows on its staff. Lois, who is a broker-
associate, qualified by being the top producer in the Northeast
Tampa office.
6001der has been named president-elect of the American Socie-
ty of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (ASOPRS)
for the 1986-87 term. He is also serving as president of the
Florida Mid-Winter Seminar for ophthalmologists and
otolaryngologists being held in Boca Raton next week. What a
terrific .. and very busy ... family.
Newcomers. I bet many of you have already met Mindi and
Fred Herman, who left Pennsylvania last April. She's Mrs. Min-
di at the JCC Pre-School at Kol Ami. Three-year-olds, two-year-
olds, playtots and afternoon day care: she teaches four classes a

A New Helping Hand
Outreach is the name of the game
in the new Orthodox movement.
Modern Orthodoxy seeks to at-
tract Jews to the traditions of
Judaism who are not certain about
their present affiliation or who are
seeking something more in
synagogue services. Leading the
movement are the young rabbis
who are graduates of Yeshiva
University's school for the rab-
binate, the Rabbi Isaac Elchannan
Theologieal Seminary.
Rabbi Warren Kasztl, 31, has
become the first permanent field
representative for the South
Florida region of the Max Stern
communal outreach program of
the seminary. He will work
alongside Chaim Friend in the
Miami office of development for
Yeshiva University.
"An Orthodox rabbi today must
be aware of public relations. We
have to learn to apply marketing
techniques to religion," Rabbi
Kasztl said about the outreach
program. The key to atracting
new recruits to Orthodoxy is in
"exposing Jews to traditions, not
imposing traditions upon them,"
the rabbi explained.
Three years ago, a handful of
Orthodox families enlisted his
help in starting a congregation in
the Kendall area south of Miami.
Using his exposure approach, the
congregation has now grown to
over 85 member families and 50
children in the religious school.
The rabbi is certain there are
"pockets of Jews in this area who
would like to establish an Or-
thodox congregation." The
outreach service will help them
"making shittachs among in-
terested people, providing the ex-
pertise to establish a traditional
Orthodox congregation." Rabbi
Kasztl pointed to four new Or-
thodox synagogues recently
established in the region, in-
cluding the Boca Raton
Synagogue in western Boca
Raton, served by fellow alumnus,
Rabbi Mark Dratch.
The rabbi recognize? that
among his own congregants
perhaps only 10 families are Or-
thodox in all aspects of daily life.
But the others are attracted by
the traditional approach.
"A whole smorgasbord of tradi-
tion is spread out on the table,"
the rabbi said, opening his hands.
"The congregants take what they
like, what they feel comfortable
Rabbi Warren Kasztl
with. In time they may be led to
sample more."
Modern Orthodoxy encourages
participation in the service. "It's
not a spectator sport, or
He acknowledges that the
separate seating of men and
women does mark the difference
between an Orthodox and Conser-
vative congregation, but main-
tains that women, whom he can
see "eye to eye" from the pulpit,
are not limited by this. In other
settings, they are not separated,
he noted, as at the Sabbath table.
In the rabbi's view, the matter
of tradition is not simply a ques-
tion of "commitment to conve-
nience but a commitment to
"A Jew trusts God and finds
that following the Command-
ments brings out the best in him."
Each woman lighting her Sabbath
candles may be experiencing the
act differently, but unless she
observes the tradition, she will not
be touched at all, he observed.
Rabbi Kasztl stressed he is also
available to assist those who are
interested in studying at any of
the colleges of Yeshiva Universi-
ty. Scholarships, based on
outstanding scholastic achieve-
ment, are available, including one
for students of Sephardic
The rabbi pointed out that one
does not need Orthodox training
to enroll in the undergraduate col-
leges, as long as a student is will-
ing to oserve the traditions and
take the required Jewish studies
courses. The graduate schools
draw a diverse population, and as
recipients of government grants,
are open to all.
Jews from all parts of the world
meet at Yeshiva, he notes, where
the Jewish atmosphere (a kosher
cafeteria, and exams not schedul-
ed on Jewish holidays) makes for a
comfortable environment. The
rabbi, a native of Denver, met his
wife, the former Gail Susan Zaret
at the University, when she was a
student at Stern. The couple has
two children.
Rabbi Kasztl is confident that
the response will be positive, and
will be making regular visits to
the Tampa area, to help transform
today's dreams into tomorrow's

": Civil, Human Rights
Were Dr. King's Dream
Both the media, television particularly, as
well as persons in government, contributed
to the meaningful celebration of the first na-
tionwide Martin Luther King, Jr., birthday
observance on Monday.
But Black leaders across the nation have
already expressed the fear that subsequent
celebrations of Dr. King's birthday may fall
into a pattern already observed as an omen
on the first a frank commercialization of
the occasion. Or, what is worse, a celebra-
tion devoid of any content, as is so often
true, say, on Presidents Day which, in the
end amounts to a day off from work for
many, but that's all.
We offer no panacea for this possibility
other than that the nation must come to
rededicate itself to the principles of Dr. King
as a daily commitment in the cause of civil
rights/human rights. This would be the best
way to say that we remember Dr. King well,
the terrible sacrifice of his life in particular,
and our determination to the principle that
it shall not have been made in vain.
All of this is especially significant for the
Jewish community which, for decades, has
fought alongside Black leaders for the ad-
vancement of their civil rights. Perhaps
nowhere more so outside the nation than in
Israel was the celebration of Dr. King's bir-
thday a significant national occasion.
Gramm-Rudman Cuts Aid
It is no secret that U.S. senators on both
sides of the aisle consider the Gramm-
Rudman Act passed by Congress in
December as an abomination.
Mainly, the legislation gives the President
ultimate veto power over the Congress in
economic matters, and the Congress rightly
considers this as an encroachment upon its
authority. Let alone a dangerous enlarge-
ment of the President's powers as defined
by the constitution.
Then why did the Congress pass it? That is
another question having to do with Mr.
Reagan's popularity generally and the na-
tional capacity to separate the President
from criticism even when he deserves it. It
also has to do with the disinclination of the
Congress, especially members of his own
party, to cross him.
Quite apparently, Mr. Reagan's power to
"persuade is not far removed from his
ability to threaten political retribution
against his nay-savers a power that was
manifest in the struggle to get Gramm-
Rudman passed in the first place.
Now, the constitutionality of Gramm-
Rudman is under careful scrutiny. Still, as
an Act it has already served as the basis for
cutting U.S. aid to Israel for the current
fiscal year. Since Gramm-Rudman is respon-
sible for a total trimming from foreign aid of
some $420 million to all countries receiving
it, or 4.3 percent, this may well mean that
Israel will have to return $51 million of the
$1.2 billion it has already been given.
That will be a profound hardship on Israel
at a time when it is struggling so valiantly
and successfully against the ravages of its
recent inflation years. Constitutional or not,
an abomination or not, Gramm-Rudman is
already working its "wonders."

for the most part, have not con-
fronted them and said anything
snide. But the Jews still clearly
feel uncomfortable, somewhat
more awkward and conspicuous.
They also feel as if this has been
a major betrayal by Israel the
decision to actually "run" an
American Jewish intelligence
agent in Washington. It has reviv-
ed with a vengeance the old
allegations of dual loyaly, which
had in recent years largely been
OVER THE past few days, I in-
terviewed a cross section of senior
Jewish officials working at the
State Department, the White
House, the Pentagon and the
Justice Department. They spoke
candidly on condition that they
would not be identified by name.
They each agreed that Israel had
blundered badly by paying the
31-year-old civilian naval in-
telligence analyst for stolen
classified documents.
A Jewish official in the Justice
Department, for example, said it
was still "too early to tell"
whether Pollard's arrest would
have all that much of a long-term
damaging impact on the status of
Jews in the U.S. Government. He
predicted, however, that Jews ap-
plying for sensitive government
positions involving security
clearances will from now on "be
subjected to stricter" background
checks by the FBI.
He also said there already had
been a "chilling effect" on
American Jews working in the
government. "I think there is a
realization that one has to be a lit-
tle more careful," he said, "a little
more discreet"
ANOTHER Jewish official at
the Defense Department said: "It
has had a terrible effect on the
morale of the Jews. It has come up
in a number of conversations with
senior people ... Many of my
Jewish friends in the government
have told me that they have felt
very, very peculiar. They have
found themselves on the

"I think the perception that I
have gotten from the various
Jewish people I have spoken to is
that the Israelis didn't take into
account the impact on the United
States Jewish community, and
what a difficult position this
places us in," he continued.
"Apart from anything else, there
is the absolute stupidity of the
whole thing.
"A lot of people are saying the
Israelis are arrogant. They don't
care about the American Jewish
community. They only want to
take our money. And they just
don't give a hoot."

said: "I have seen two things: All
the Jews in the government are
very unhappy, much more so, in
my sense, than the Jews outside
the government. A lot of them,
are saying, 'Well, Israel needs it.'
But Jews in the government are
saying it's terrible, unbelievable
that they have done this, that this

he, personally, had not yet seen

tion mark. I have found the follow-

people explaining to me why they
want to stress their non-Jewish
side so that they won't be
"They are Jewish, but junior
people. They don't want to be
looked at as the court Jew. They
want to be seen as a Republican,
and it may well be that the reason
that they are concerned, why I am
hearing their concern about being
typecast, is Pollard. That may
well be."
"People are talking about it and
thinking about it," another Ad-
ministration official commented.
"It was not overly helpful. That's
been the sense. I've had no real
sense of anyone drawing back,
suggesting that if Pollard did it,
then everybody else must be doing
it. But it was terrible what they
(Israel) did."
A JEWISH State Department
official was also very concerned
about the impact of the affair.
"Needless to say, this is a subject
very close to my heart," he said. It
was with considerable trepidation
that I first read of it. To the best
that I can determine, there has
been no backlash whatsoever. I
can't claim to have the world's
most sensitive antennae. There
are some who suggest that the
FBI is reviewing all our files. I
have no indication of that. I really
"Quite frankly, if I were in the
FBI, I might be thinking along
those lines not out of any anti-
Semitic motivations or any
bigotry whatsovever. But just
look at this guy's (Pollard) profile,
and say 'Maybe, just as a precau-
tion, we had better look at people
with similar profiles Jews who
have dealt with Israel in some sort
of sensitive capacity.' There are
probably a 100 or so people who
might fit that description peo-
ple who have worked in the Em-
bassy in Tel Aviv, people who
have worked in Middle Eastern
"But as far as I can tell, I have not
heard a comment, either directed
at me or anybody else, which
would cast the slightest shadow of
doubt or question on Jews per se,
about their loyalty or anything
else. I can tell you, though, that it
has made me uneasy, nonetheless.
Not that it has affected me in any
thing that I have done. But I think
it's almost inevitable that that
kind of thing would make

to us, as American Jews?"
tell them of interest, they are go-
ing to report," he said. "I have
never told them anything that
could in any fashion be construed
as revealing unauthorized revela-
tions, which is not to say I haven't Israel for the past year'
shared perceptions about the at-
titude of the government, and so
forth. But it's a far jump between
that and providing copies of
documents, and getting paid for it
to boot.
"Frankly, the single impression
that has most struck me by all this
is actually a dual one the in-
credible incompetence of both the
Israeli intelligence service and the
American counter-intelligence ser-
vice. How they let this turkey
(Pollard) into this job when the
Washigton Post could come up on
the next morning with a story
quoting nine different people say-
ing that the guy strutted around
claiming he was a Mossad agent.
It's absolutely beyond me. It
scares the hell out of me.
"The big, remaining question in
my mind is how many more
Pollards are there," he continued.
"I have no idea, but I'm sure there
is more than one You don't run a
whole operation like that with one
agent. It just does not stand to
reason that it begins and ends
with Pollard. But obviously I have
no idea."
HE SAID U.S. officials have
long believed that Israel was
"dogged and relatively
unscrupulous in the things they
went after in this country."
Referring to the longstanding
U.S.-Israeli agreement not to
undertake covert operations
against each other, he said: It had
been assumed for a long time that
this agreement that we had was
more closely adhered to by us than
by the Israelis. People generally
winked. If it involved Silicon
valley and trying to get some
technology, that didn't really
worry us all that much. I don't
think it occurred to anybody that
they were actually planting
agents in intelligence agencies.
"But it's been assumed for a
long time that the Israelis were
collecting everything over here
that they could get their hands on,
and that we took a pretty benign
attitude toward it. Which may be
part of the problem. Maybe, if the
U.S. had spoken up a long time
ago, and said, 'Hey, look guys, we
know what's going on. We don't
like it,' they might have been
more discreet. I don't know. But I
think there has been a very per-
missive attitude towards Israelis
in the United States."
IN SHORT, Jews in the govern-
ment, even while they are not ac-
tually being directly confronted
with nasty comments from their
non-Jewish colleagues, stall tend
to assume that their colleagues
are thinking such things.
Looking down the road, there is
a consensus among these Jews
that the final outcome of this sor-
did affair will largely depend on
what emerges from the current In-
vestigation into the whole Pollard
If it becomes clear that this was
merely an isolated incident, that
Pollard was simply a rogue
character, the crisis will tend to
blow over relatively quickly. "But

others, who also happen to be
Jewish, I think that could really,
really be bad," one American

Tu Bi-Shevat
Mid-Winter Spring Celebration
Friday, January 24, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 5
January 25, 1986: How many ol
us, when this date comes, will
associate it with spring and the
regeneration of the earth? Pro-
bably not many, as most people
usually associate the end of
January with wrapping
themselves up in a desperate at-
tempt to keep warm. Why not,
though, take a break from
winter's icy tentacles by par-
ticipating in a joyous Tu Bi-
Shevat, the Jewish New Year of
the Trees?
Tu Bi-Shevat is an ancient
agrarian holiday, reflecting how
our ancestors lived in close har-
mony with the cyles of nature. Ac-
cording to Jewish law, eating
from fruit trees was permitted on-
ly after the fifth year of planting,
following the fruit's being con-
secrated in,the fourth. The fif-
teenth day of Sheyat was settled
upon as the legal "birthday" of all
trees. Customs associated with
the holiday are recent innovations
associated with 16th and 17th
Century mystic Kabbalists. They
encouraged the eating of the
fruits of Israel as expression of
loNging for the Jewish homeland,
and even created a Tu Bi-Shevat
Seder. This special ceremony calls
for a table set in festive white, lit
by candles and complemented by
the fragrances of myrtle leaves
and flowers. Four cups of wine
and blessings over a variety of
fruits are all part of this Seder.
Tu Bi-Shevat signals the coming
of spring in Israel, a time when
the rains have let up and the
flowers are making their debut on
the hillsides and the almond trees.
Tu Bi-Shevat celebrations began
in Israel on the 19th day of Tevat,
which this year fell on Dec. 31,
and will continue through this
Sunday, during the month of
Shevat. The first day of the
celebrations also marked the 84th
birthday of the Jewish National
Fund, the organization responsi-
ble for afforestation and land
reclamation in Israel. The celebra-
tions began with a central tree-
planting ceremony on the
shoreline of the Sea of Galilee.
Educators later held a symposium
on the working of the land with
JNF leaders and government
During Tu Bi-Shevat, 200,000
schoolchildren, teachers, Ethio-
pian immigrants, and Israelis
from all walks of life are expected
to plant tree saplings at 40 JNF
sites from the Golan Heights in
the North to Eilat in the South.
Included among the many
festivities are major ceremonies
to be held in JNF forests with
government ministers and
Knesset members. In major
municipalities, shopping malls will
feature JNF carnival-style
displays of forest furniture. On
the eve of Tu Bi-Shevat, a gala
community sing-a-long, including
a program on afforestation with
JNF world chairman Moshe
Rivlin, will be broadcast live over
Voice of Israel.
In America, Jews all over the
country participate in Tu Bi-
Shevat by contributing toward
JNF-sponsored tree-planting ac-
tivities and fulfilling the ancient
mitzvah of creating new life on
Israel's sacred soil. Children and
adults use the traditional JNF
blue box to collect funds for the
planting of trees, thus strengthen-
ing the ties between Israel and the
When Israelis plant trees at Tu
Bi-Shevat site, they too are par-
ticipating in a most meaningful Tu
Bi-Shevat tradition. And it is most
appropriate that these activities
occur under the auspices of JNF.
JNF, after all, is the agency
whose afforestation and land
reclamation projects have
Jewish Community Asked
To Assist In Statue
of Liberty Restoration
The following letter was rece-
ived by Judith Rosenkranz, presi-
dent of the Tampa Jewish Federa-
tion from Shoshana Card in, presi-
dent of the Council of Jewish Fed-
"As you undoubtedly know, ef-
forts are underway to restore the
State of Liberty for the celebra-
tion of its Centennial in 1986. Also
being restored is the famous im-
migration intake facility at nearby
Ellis Island. What you may not
know is that these efforts are be-
ing underwritten by a private sec-
tor initiative through a foundation
- State of Liberty, Ellis Island
Foundation which is raising
millions of dollars from the many
ethnic and religious organizations
in the United States, among
others, who are specifically aware
and appreciative of the
significance of these historical
monuments for America.
It is especially appropriate for
us, as American Jewish organiza-
tions specifically committed to
human service and freedom of im-
migration for our people to par-
ticipate in this effort, since for so
many of our forebearers the
Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island was
their first sight of the goldene
medijiah. Here they sought and
found refuge from oppression.
Just as it is fitting that the
immortal poem by a Jewish
woman, Emma Lazarus, is
engraved on the base of the
Statue of Liberty and expresses
the epitome of its meaning for
millions of Americans, so it is ap-
propriate now for the Jewish com-
munity to make a significant con-
tribution to this special American
effort to restore both the Statue
of Liberty and Ellis Island for the
enjoyment of all our future
When you see the enclosed par-
tial listing of the responses of
American ethnic and religious
groups, we think you will agree
that the American Jewish com-
munity, which has benefited so
dramatically from American
freedom and opportunity, should
be included in a significant and
visible way in this endeavor."

transformed Israel from its
former arid desolation to a coun-
try which is 90 percent self-
sufficient agriculturally and is
known for the lush vegetation of
its hills and forests.
Just as Israelis are aware that
Tu Bi-Shevat symbolizes the
resettlement and regeneration of
the land, they also cannot help but
associate the holiday with the ex-
traordinary accomplishments of
JNF's afforestation program.
This program has resulted in 170
million trees being planted since
1901, and an additional four to
five million planted each year. Af-
forestation, however, has meant
more to Israel's land than just the
aesthetic beauty which trees pro-
vide to JNF forests, parks,
playgrounds, and picnic areas.
Trees have played a major role in
all of JNF's efforts to reclaim the
entire land of Israel.
In the Negev, trees increase ox-
ygen and break the fierce desert
wind velocity, thereby preserving
the soil. In the Galilee, in northern
Israel, trees stand as barriers
against winds that ravage slopes
of their fertile layers of top soil.
The eucalyptus, which absorbs
enormous amounts of water, has
been of great aid in swamp
drainage and making the land fit
for agricultural use. When one
considers it, the benefits of trees
are innumerable, especially to a
small country like Israel, which
needs to make maximum use of its
natural resources. Trees mean
more moisture in the soil, prevent
a rapid run-off of rain water, pro-
vide shade, reinvigorate the soil
and air, help shelter border com-
munities, and provide shelter for
wildlife. In addition, they provide
raw materials for farms and fac-
tories, and offer immigrants,
many of whom work in JNF
forests, their first economic
foothold in their new land.
Strange as it may seem, the
rites of spring will be accelerated
on Jan. 25. All Jews, including
those still shivering under
winter's deep freeze, can take
part this Tu Bi-Shevat in a
spiritual communion with the
forces of rebirth, helping preserve
the land of our heritage for future

Jewish Music Season to Highlight Music's Role in Jewish Life-Cycle
NEW YORK "To everything
There is a Season" will be ihe
theme of Jewish Music Season, to
be marked from Jan. 26 to May
14, under the national aegis of the
JWB Jewish Music Council.
According to Leonard Kaplan of
Boston, chairman of the JWB
Jewish Music Council, "We are
holding Jewish Music Season as a
way of highlighting the role of
Jewish life-cycle events. Music has
always been an integral part of
the Jewish experience and of
Jewish educational programming.
It has contributed texture to the
Jewish events which mark our
"Jewish Music Season will also
open the door to the tremendous
variety of Jewish music used in
Jewish education in synagogues,
Jewish Community Centers and
Schools, and will foster the bonds
of Klal Yisrael."
The 15-by-20 inch poster
heralding Jewish Music Season
was created by New York artist
Karen Leon. Of her creation, the
artist says, "JWB wanted
something that wasn't typical.
Since the theme of Jewish Music
Season is 'To Everything There Is
a Season' and music for the
Jewish life-cycle will be featured, I
saw that this involved building up
Jewish experiences and connec-
ting them one to the other.
Building blocks seemed to be the
ideal way to get the message
"Since we start with our Jewish
children, and naturally move
through all the stages of our
Jewish lives, building blocks are a
'natural' And, of course, building
blocks are colorful"
The theme of Jewish Music
Season runs across a number of
the blocks. Across others, in
Hebrew, are the words for
Bar/Bat Mitzvah, chuppah (wed-
ding canopy) and kaddish. At the
bottom is the phrase, "season of
our lives."
Two full-color Jewish Music
Season posters will be part of the
1986 Jewish Music Kit that will
also include a Resource Guide,

Tampa Jewry Asked to
Respond To 'Bricks
For Colombia' Project
The Jewish community of Col-
ombia has appealed to the Tampa
Jewish Federation through the
Council of Jewish Federations and
the Joint Distribution Committee
for help with their "Bricks for
Colombia" project. This project,
undertaken by the Jews of
Colombia with the encouragement
of their government, will provide
housing for people made homeless
by the volcano that buried the
town of Armero.
Abie Nathan, Israeli
humanitarian and peace activist,
helped develop this proposal with
the Jewish community following a
tour of the devastated area with a
team of Israeli volunteers. The
cost of the project, an estimated
$500,000, is beyond the means of
the small Colombian Jewish com-
munity, and they have turned to
the Jewish communities of North
America and Israel for help.
The "Bricks for Colombia" pro-
ject will consist of a brick factory
located on high ground between
the towns of Lerida and Guayabal,
where the survivors of Armero
will build new homes.
The factory will employ 200 peo-
ple for a period of at least 10 mon-
ths, producing an estimated 5
million bricks. These will be sup-
plied free to the refugees.
The Colombian government has
agreed to transport the bricks to
the building sites, and will provide
roads, foundations, sewage and
The Joint Distribution Commit-
tee, as the overseas relief arm of
the American Jewish community,
opened its mailbox for Colombian
relief on Nov. 27, and wil continue
to accept earmarked donations for
"Bricks for Colombia."
Checks marked "Colombian
Relief' or "Bricks for Colombia"
may be sent to the Tampa Jewish
Federation, 2808 Horatio Street,

ting Jewish Musk Council coor-
dinator, "We think that the poster
is a beautiful, colorful statement
which will stimulate programs
across the country."
In addition to the kit, the JWB
Jewish Music Council has a wealth
of resources, which includes the
Jewish Center Songster and a
variety of program aids, Jewish
music historical publications, and
bibliographies of Jewish music.

Saving The Russian Jews
0 Abram is chairman of the Na-
tional Conference of Soviet
Historian Norton Gilbert of Ox-
ford University, speaking at the
recent National Conference of
Soviet Jewry meeting in
Washington, D.C., pointed out
that we have lost what he describ-
ed as "a Polish Jewish nation."
Still surviving in Eastern Europe
is the Russian Jewish nation but
we are in grave danger of losing
that, too. I believe it is the pur-
pose of the Jewish community,
with our many allies, to be sure
that the Russian Jewish nation is
not lost.
Less than 1,000 were permitted
to emigrate last year and their
numbers are not increasing.
Under this "modern" Gorbachev
regime, Hebrew teachers are
regularly harassed, even im-
prisoned, to prevent the carrying
on and transmission of the Jewish
tradition. This harassment is pur-
poseful, it is deliberate, it is
1 am not cheered at all by the
election of Mikhail Gorbachev, a
man who, every time the issue of
human rights of the Soviet Jews is
presented to him, bluntly, flatly,
cruelly says, "that is an internal
Soviet affair."
I don't look for a "magic bullet"
to solve this problem. Some have
advocated the repeal of the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment
(legislation tying favored trade
status for the USSR with increas-
ed emigration of Soviet Jews) as
the solution, the magic bullet. At
the height of emigration in 1979
when 51,000 left Russia, the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment was
in place. I think we made a
mistake in 1979. We could have
asked the President to waive the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment for
one year, under conditions of good
conduct on the part of the Soviets.
But repeal of the Jackson-Vanik
Amendment would be the
equivalent to unilateral
Some say if all of the Jews who
have emigrated or will emigrate
from the Soviet Union go to
Israel, as their visas say, rather
than to Canada and the United
States, that would solve the pro-
blem. I think it is rather unlikely.
There are arguments as to why
the Soviet Union might not want
these emigres to come to the
United States and Canada
because it files in the face of the
doctrine of repatriation. There are
also arguments as to why they
don't want them to go to Israel
because it creates propaganda
material for those in the Arab
world to use against the Soviet
In any event, it is impossible for
the American Jewish community
only 40 years after the St.
Louis case, that tragic shipload of
refugees from Hitler unable to
find a safe haven to advocate a
change in the refugee laws which
will keep Jews from going where
they wish to go, especially the
United States.
We must look for generalized
solutions rather than a magic
bullet, and there is, in my
judgment, a moment at hand
either of supreme opportunity or
terrible frustration. I happen to
believe it is an opportunity becau-
se I have always felt that the
Soviet Union treated its Jewish
population on the basis of its expe-
dient self-interest.
Soviet self-interest, beginning
in 1917 with the Revolution, was
encompassed in Soviet policy vis-
a-vis the Jews. The purpose was to
amalgamate the Jews, to make
them into a "cookie cutter" type
of standard Soviet, complacent,
compliant and highly productive.
Jews were useful as brain power
and they also gave a human rights
cachet to a brutal regime. How
could they do that? IF you read
the literature in the '20s and '30s,
you will see exultation in the
liberal communities of the West,
particularly among Jews, who
grasped Lenin's aphorism pro-
claiming anti-Semitism "the
socialism of fools." I remember
my father-in-law, 90, rushing to
the Soviet Union with his wife in
the 1930s, to see the country that
had outlawed anti-Semitism. He
came back a sorely disappointed
and disillusioned man, but not
everybody was disillusioned.
In any event, there were good
reasons for the Soviet Union in
the '20s, '30s and '40s, and maybe
in the '50s, to retain its Jewish
population. Those reasons no
longer apply. It's perfectly clear
that unless we cut off contacts or
they are cut off from us, our
Soviet brethren are not going to
be amalgamated. Jews are simply
people who are guilty of that
Soviet charge of being
cosmopolites and a cosmopolite is
not a "cookie cutter" type of
Soviet. Even if the Soviet Union
thought the Jews could be put into
this mold, something happened
when Golda Meir came to Moscow
and there was that wild and ex-
uberant, wonderful Simchat
Torah demonstration in the
streets. Sovietologists knew that
they hadn't succeeded, that
Unique Project Combats Assimilation In Europe, Report
To Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture Reveals
assimilation hadn't worked.
The exultation of the Soviet
Jews during the Sue-Day War has
continued ever since .. despite
the fact that Mr. Gorbachev will
lie about it on American televi-
sion. We can document the fact
that 300,000 Jews have not denied
the requests of relatives abroad
join them. In a population of 1.8
million to 3 million Jews, 300,000
souls willing to take that risk
represent an enormous tide of
people who are not satisfied to re-
main in the Soviet Union.
As far as the drain on the brain
power, the Soviet Union no longer
needs it. Today there's not a
single Jew in the Politburo, and I
doubt whether there is any Jew in
the Foreign Service, unless he
pays obeisance to the anti-Zionist
Soviet League.
Jews are no longer an asset in
the propaganda battle. They are
the evidence of the failure of the
Soviet system to practice the
human rights principles to which
it pays pious and hypocritical
I am convinced that among the
reasons for retention is the enor-
mous loss of face if the Soviets
should be depopulated of Jews. If
they abandon some of their prin-
ciples with respect to the State of
Israel, they would contribute to its
growth. An additional reason
perhaps can be used to our advan-
tage: the Jews of the Soviet Union
are held as hostages to be redeem-
ed by the United States, which
alone possesses the currency.
Should the United States and the
West pay the price, and as a
Jewish community, should we ask
that any price be paid or only a
limited price?
Suppose it were put to the
Soviet authorities sub-rosa
because the whole business would
be humiliating for them and never
admitted that if they let the
Jews go, the U.S. would get rid of
Star Wars. Is there any doubt that
in that case the Soviets would
even let the Volga Germans and
the Armenians out as well?
NEW YORK "The high rate
of assimilation and intermarriage
is due to the appalling ignorance
and the lack of Jewish education."
This assessment was made by
Rabbi Joseph Grunfeld, director,
Project SEED EUROPE, in a
report to the Memorial Founda-
tion for Jewish Culture, which
provides financial assistance to
the project.
"In order to redress the situa-
tion," Rabbi Grunfeld observes,
"we talk about building new
Jewish schools and try to impress
upon parents the importance of
sending their children to such
"The sad truth, however, is that
as long as the parents of these
children remain a disinterested
party and are not prepared to
either encourage their children or
set an example for them, all ef-
forts will be in vain.
"It therefore becomes im-
perative to run parallel courses to
re-educate the parents alongside
their children."
Philip M. Klutznick, president of
the Memorial Foundation for
Jewish Culture, says, "Project
SEED EUROPE, based in
England, is the largest Jewish
adult education organization in
Great Britain with 30 centers

the South. More than 800 men and

educational program. Participants

dividual tutors who are

In his report to the Memorial
Foundation, Rabbi Grunfeld at-
tributes the success of Project
SEED EUROPE to its emphasis
on personalized study.
"SEED, in this country, is
synonymous with one-to-one
study," Rabbi Grunfeld writes.
"People who are interested in this
kind of service know that there is
an organization which specializes
in providing it. We receive cons-
tant requests to open new centers
and we are unable to keep up with
the demand."
The stimulus for developing a
program of adult Jewish educa-
tion was provided by Dr. Jerry
Hochbaum, executive director of
the Memorial Foundation for
Jewish Culture. Rabbi Grunfeld
borrowed an idea from the United
States initiated by Torah
Umesorah whereby students
would devote their summer vaca-
tions to learn with adults in
Jewish communities.
Rabbi Grunfeld expanded the
summer program into a year-
round adult education program by
using what he saw as "an untap-
ped reservoir of knowledgeable
laymen, professionals and
businessmen who have a Jewish
education and are perfectly
capable of imparting their
knowledge to others."
Rabbi Grunfeld, who has suc-
cessfully pioneered Project SEED
EUROPE, received support thr-
ough the Memorial Foundation's

Scholarship Program while he

of the many innovative programs
fostering Jewish education that

by the Memorial Foundation for

tor of the Foundation.

Book Review
Between Washington and Jerusalem
Friday, January 24, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 9
"Between Washington &
Jerusalem;" by Wolf Blitzer; Ox-
ford University Press; 259 Pages;
Reviewed by Abraham H. Fox-
man, Associate National Director,
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
In 1948, incredible as it might
seem today, an American govern-
ment refused Israel arms by em-
bargoing sales to the entire Mid-
dle East.
Battling for its very survival,
the fledgling Jewish State was
rescued by arms purchased from a
Soviet satellite, Czechoslovakia.
The situation is far different to-
day. Soviet arms flow in a seem-
ingly ceaseless stream to Israel's
Arab antagonists while being
denied to the Jewish State. On the
other hand, Israel's relations with
the United States, not only
militarily but commercially and
culturally, grow closer and
stronger, despite intermittent
strains, with the passage of the
How did this happen? What
brought about this profound
reversal with all its implications
for the peace of the area and the
In his verv well researched and
documented book, "Between
Washington & Jerusalem," Wolf
Blitzer, the American bureau
chief of the Jerusalem Pott in
Washington, D.C., explains this
"phenomenon" from his special
perspective as an on-the-scene
observer in the nation's capital.
Just published by the Oxford
University Press, the book is sub-
titled "A Reporter's Notebook" to
emphasize its distillation from his
journalistic experience in both
capitals and his intimacy with the
political leaders of both countries.
Nevertheless, the first person
singular is rarely in evidence, as
the author unobtrusively traces
the evolution of the strengthening
relationship between the United
States and Israel with a myriad of
detail, interviews and anecdotes.
In tracing the unique relation-
ship which has developed, i-
nevitably, much of the ground he
covers is familiar terrain, but it is
infused with a reporter's objectivi-
ty and the knowledgeable outlook
of a person born and raised in one
country who has spent many
years in the other and who is
fluent in both Hebrew and
What emerges, therefore, is an
informed analysis of the way peo-
ple function and things work in
both countries the interaction
of presidents and prime ministers,
of the State Department and the
Foreign Office, of members of
Congress and the Knesset and,
perhaps most important of all, the
effect of all this on the American
hinterland where the battle for
the understanding and support of
ordinary Americans is ultimately
waged and decided.
The book is peopled with a cast
of characters that have become
familiar through the headlines of
nearly four decades from Ben-
Gurion to Peres, from Truman to
Reagan who are shown as they
make decisions, communicate
with each other, react to external
and internal pressures and deal,
from their respective positions,
with each other, the Arab coun-
tries, the United Nations and their
own citizens.
According to Blitzer, "a strong
case can be made" that the rela-
tionship resulting from this inter-
raction and the economic, social
and strategic needs and problems
of each benefits both countries
and "is stronger and more vital
than ever before despite some
highly publicized differences b-
etween Washington and
Nevertheless, there have been
stressful differences and the im-
plication is clear that despite the
attributes both nations share
faiths tracing their origins to
Judaism, democratic principles,
dedication to freedom the rela-
tionship cannot be taken for
granted as each nation in its own
enlightened self-interest must do
what it thinks best for its own peo-
ple. Dspite this caveat, however,
Blitzer leaves little doubt that the
relationship will withstand such
inevitable challenges and endure
to the benefit of both peoples.
A major reason for such a
deduction is that the relationship
is not just on a high level between
government officials but is one of
depth involving the intermingling
of both administrative and legisla-
tive bureaucracies, strategic
cooperation of both military
organizations, exchanges of in-
telligence between Mossad and
the CIA and Israel's longstanding
association and connections with
America's labor establishment,
various Christian groups and the
black community. Needless to say,
the significance of the American
Jewish community is not
As one might expect, the author
gives special attention to the ma-
jor roles played by Kissinger dur-
ing and after the Yom Kippur
War, by Carter in working with
Sadat and Begin for the
cooperative achievement of Camp
David, and brings the reader up to
date with Reagan, whom he
describes as willing to lean on
Israel as in the AWACS con-
troversy despite his gut com-
mitment to its survival and
Finally, Blitzer believes that
there has been a constant thread
in United States policy toward
Israel which calls for the Jewish
State's preservation but, at the
same time, endeavors to satisfy
what many consider are the
legitimate aspirations of the
Palestinians for some control over
their own destiny.
Until that crucial issue is con-
fronted in the crunch of the face-
to-face negotiations that are now
being talked, it is of the utmost
importance that the Reagan Ad-
ministration position, as quoted
by Blitzer, continues to be an
assurance to Israel "that we will
never see them lose their
qualitative (military) edge to the
point that they're endangered by
anything we do."
Replete with significant and
useful information, as well as little
known facts and human interest
anecdotes, the book also provides
special insights and nuances for
those who have followed the Mid-
dle East conflict closely. For those
who know little about the subject,
it is a comprehensive and detailed
education about the longest war of
our time and America's role in it.

But Reagan added that there

Temple Mount Violence

Police Appoint Special Inquiry Committee
The Jerusalem police
have appointed a special
panel to investigate the
clash on the Temple Mount
between members of the
Knesset's Interior Commit-
tee and an angry Moslem
crowd that allegedly
threatened their lives.
The police safely evacuated
the MKs. But the latter, mostly
rightwingers, insist the police
should have taken tough measures
to curb the mob instead of moun-
ting a rescue operation. Commit-
tee chairman Dov Shilansky
(Likud-Herut), said that he would
refuse to testify before the police
investigators because he thought
the police action itself should be
THE TEMPLE Mount, site of
the Al-Aksa mosque and Dome of
the Rock (Mosque of Omar) is the

Noncurricular Religious Activity
Fires First Conflict in Milwaukee
The first known local con-
flict over noncurricular
religious activity in a public
secondary school has ended
with all sides apparently
It all began last September,
when a Jewish woman in subur-
ban Mequon, Wise., complained to
the principal of Homestead High
School therfe tftat a group of Chris-
tian students studying Bible at the
school after classes ended was in
violation of the Equal Access Act
of 1984.
The Act mandates that a public
secondary school must either per-
mit all noncurriculum-related stu-
dent groups including religious
ones to meet in the school dur-
ing "noncurricular time" and
under certain conditions, or pro-
hibit all such meetings.
THE GROUP, Christians in Ac-
tion (CIA), claims a membership
of 20-30 students with a faculty
adviser. It has met weekly since
September, 1984 to study the
New Testament and hear Chris-
tian music and guest speakers. It
will continue to meet as long as it
adheres to the interpretation to
Equal Access agreed to verbally
last month by the Milwaukee
Jewish Council and the Mequon-
Thiensville School District presi-
dent, David Hase.
This agreement followed a
series of meetings involving
school administrators, Council of-
ficials, group adviser Jerre Allen,
and the woman who complained,
the interpretation agreed to, ac-
cording to Mark Kohlenberg of
the Council, is:
That the group no longer be
listed in the school's yearbook.
The listing implies group affilia-
tion with the school. Hase said the
listing in last year's yearbook
"slipped through the cracks."
That announcement of group
meetings be omitted from the stu-
dent newspaper. Again, this im-
plies affiliation with the school.
Moreover, the student newspaper,
The Spectrum, published a brief
feature article about the CIA last
November 8. The school principal,
Dr. John Box, said he has in-
structed the advisers of both
publications to omit information
about the CIA.
That the faculty adviser serve
only in a custodial role. Adviser
Allen said that he only watches
student activities because "the
school wants an adult present at
every club activity" and that the
students asked him to do so. Ac-
cording to Box and Hase, Allen
now understands his role.
That outside speakers not be
used regularly, nor proselytize.
Hase said it would be safest not to
invite outside speakers at all. Box
said none would be invited. Allen
said he agreed only that clerics
would not be invited.
That no retribution, formal or
informal, be made against the
woman who complained or her
Hase said Box would enforce
the agreement. "I've checked
since (the agreement) and I'll
check again," Box said. Allen said
the students, "feel very strongly
about staying within the law."
Indeed, Box said he never
thought the CIA was in violation
of the law or intended to be. "It's
a matter of how you want to inter-
pret the language,' he said.
Regardless, he said he was willing
to accept the new, "more conser-
vative" course.
third holiest site in the Islamic
faith. It is accessible to all visitors
but only Moslems are permitted to
worship there, a situation that
wrankles ultra-nationalist
While the Interior Committee
says it was on legitimate business
to investigate complaints that
the Moslem religious authorities
allowed illegal construction it
was accompanied by three
hardliners who have long demand-
ed an end to the special privileges
given Moslems there.
These were Tehiya Party MKs
Yuval Neeman and Geula Cohen,
who are not members of the In-
terior Committee, and nationalist
activist Gershom Salomon who
has frequently led groups of Jews
in attempt to hold prayer services
on the Temple Mount.
OFFICIALS OF the Waqf, the
Moslem religious council in charge
of the holy sites, said the presence
of well-known agitators for
Jewish religious rights on the
Temple Mount was a provocation.
For that reason, the Muezzin (the
Moslem crier who calls the hours
of prayer) summoned the faithful
over the public address system to
"defend" their shrines.
Shilansky said that Neeman,
Cohen and Salomon had every
right to be present, as well as the
reporters and television crews in-
vited to accompany the committee
members. He demanded that the
Muezzin be arrested and charged
with incitement.
While the Knesseters claim they
were attacked without provoca-
tion, the Moslem Supreme Council
claims the MKs deliberately
violated the ban on cameras at the
holy site. This is one of the mat-
ters the police investigators will
look into.
THE PANEL is headed by Ami
Fleissig, chief of investigations at
Jerusalem police headquarters.
Cohen has refused to cooperate
with him on grounds that a police
officer cannot investigate his
The MKs' quarrel is with
Jerusalem Police Chief Haim
Albaldes who ordered his men to
evacuate the threatened
legislators. There is reportedly a
move afoot in the Knesset to de-
mand that the State Attorney
General investigate the incident,
not the police.
Frayed tempers were hardly
eased by another incident
resulting in the arrest of three
ultranationalist Jews. The three
clashed with Moslem guards on
the Temple Mount when they at-
tempted to raise an Israeli flag on
the site and sang Hatikva, the na-
tional anthem. They claimed they
represented Tehiya, But Neeman,
leader of the rightwing party,
denied prior knowledge of their
Another prominent hardliner,
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry Ariel Sharon of Likud,
visited the Temple Mount, after
first coordinating with the police.
There was no incident. Sharon
stated that the site should be free-
ly accessible to both Moslems and
Jews for prayers.
prayer is complicated. The
government has banned it for
political reasons ever since the
Temple Mount was seized by
Israel in the 1967 war.
Orthodox Jews are forbidden
for halachic reasons from praying
at the site because of the presence
of Islamic shrines. For that
reason, Orthodox members of the
Interior Committee did not ac-
company Shilansky to the Temple
Mount, nor did most Labor MKs
for political reasons.
Shilansky vowed to return but
was forced to abandon his plans
under pressure from colleagues
after Knesset Speaker Shlomo
Hillel firmly ruled it out.
Meanwhile, police and border
police are maintaining a high pro-
file presence at the site to
forestall further incidents.
