Juergensen, professor of
Humanities at the University of
Coordinating panel members
led by moderator, Marsha Sher-
man, will present preliminary
plans for the formation of a new
Reform Jewish congregation to
serve the needs of families in the
North Tampa area. Tentative
plans for the High Holy Days and
for a religious school for the fall of
1986 will be discussed.
Filling a long recognized need
for the growing Reform Jewish
population in the North Tampa
area, the Association welcomes
those who have desired to worship
and affiliate within reasonable
distances from their homes. The
coordinating members are en-
thusiastic and excited about this
new venture, and they invite all
prospective members to join with
them now and to share questions

any developmental core commit-

optimism and excitement which
has pervaded the initial group, but
a once-in-a-lifetime chance to im-

While the Association hopes
that the meeting will generate in-
terest and a positive response, at-
tendance in no way will require an
immediate commitment. It is
hoped that the warmth and
camaraderie generated by this
new sense of community will be
the cornerstone of a strong
Reform Congregation in the north
end of Tampa.
Opportunities for get-togethers
will take place throughout the
summer, including a possible

So will he not lose who gives to a
good cause." This quote from the

cies. The time, dedication, service
and financial support, which these
volunteers devote to the good
causes their organizations ad-
vance, will be recognized at the
Annual Combined Meeting,

of accomplishments and service
which they achieved this year."

A true teacher among teachers. I'm so pleased to tell you
about Dr. Joyce Burick Swarzman's latest achievement! The
Senior Class has named her the 1985-86 Outstanding Professor
from the Tampa campus of USF. Her record of leadership and
commitment to the University and her students led her to this
distinction. Dedication, creativity, awareness and extra special
ability to communicate to the students were among Joyce's
qualities cited by Dr. John Lott Brown when he officially
presented the award at the May 4 graduation ceremonies in the
When I called to say raazol tov to Joyce for this wonderful
award, she wanted to talk about her students and her program,
not herself. (You could tell why the students chose her!) She is the
Assistant Director of the Suncoast Area Teacher Training
Honors Program, which, she explained, operates on the belief
that teachers surely influence the future of society. Thus, it is the
purpose of SCATT to provide honors-level pre-service teachers
with challenging activities, workshops, seminars and other ex-
periences above and beyond the requirements of a traditional
We're all so proud of Dr. Joyce, and appreciative of her goals.

New BBYO officers. There has been a lot of reorganizing of
the Tampa Chapters of BBYO during the last few weeks. We send
our best wishes to Diane Pozin, daughter of Shelly Pozin, for be-
ing elected to the position of N'siah (President) of BBG North
Florida Council. And congratulations to Adam Silver man son of
Cindy and Mitch Silverman who was elected Godol (President) for

BBYO this year, one of the organization's highest awards. For in-
formation on BBYO, please call the JCC, 872-4451.
Bursting with pride. You can understand why Kenneth Hur-
witz' family practically beams through the telephone when they
talk about him. Ken, son of Sandra and Martin Hurwitz of
Apollo Beach, and the grandson of Anna Lee and Jay
Markowitz, has earned one of the nation's most prestigious
awards for ROTC excellence during a recent ceremony conducted
by the Army's top officials. The Phi Beta Kappa graduate of
Tulane University earned the 1986 George C. Marshall Award for
excellence in military science and leadership skills. He also receiv-
ed the President's Cup Award at graduation. Ken, who attended
Tulane on a four-year ROTC scholarship, plans to attend medical
school in the fall and then enter the Army as a doctor.
The family has other news to be proud of: Jay and Anna Lee
celebrated their golden 50th wedding anniversary on May 9.
Mazol tov to the whole family!

EDITOR; The Jewish Floridian: You decide.
Recently, the Tampa Bay
Jewish Singles Council announced
the formation of a "for twenty's
only" division. The Council's ac-
tion may have been well-
intentioned, but certainly
discriminates against age and sets
a dangerous precedent. Just how
does the Council proposes to keep
people out who are not in their
20's? Will people be required to
show a driver's license or birth
The formation of a "20's only"
division excludes all others. This
could result in further splits and
divisions of the organization. It
could also result in people dropp-
ing out of the organization. Why
pay a $20 fee to belong to a singles
group that restricts the activities
that one can attend based upon
It seems somewhat ironic that
this month's bulletin contained an
announcement by the Council of
its formation of a 20's only divi-
sion, while the same bulletin con-
tained a questionaire with an age
category running from 25-35. It
would certainly appear that the
council used little foresight with
the creation of its new division
and did not realize the ramifica-
tions of such action.
The Council claims to represent
the needs of the Jewish communi-
ty. Which community do they
represent Tampa or Pinellas
County? The base of their opera-
tion stems from the Tampa Jewish
Community Center. Yet, most of
the people running programs live
in Pinellas County. It's more than
a coincidence that the majority of
events are also located in Pinellas
County. The Council boasts of a
mailing list of over 1,500 people,
yet only about 100 people have
become members. The fact is, for
the last few weeks a group of peo-
ple have been meeting at a local
temple here in Tampa to form
their own singles group.
Does the Council reflect the
need* of community or .does-the-
Council refect the needs Of itself?
Editor/ Note: "For Twenty's
Only" is a new division and in-
tegral part of the Tampa Bay
Jewish Singles Council. It was
formed in response to meet the
special programming needs of
those Jewish singles in their early
twenties. The events are open to all
Jewish singles, however they are
planned by those individuals in

On Friday, June 6, the Jewish
people in Israel and throughout
the world will mark "Jerusalem
Day." A new holiday which was
established 14 years ago to

Jerusalem in the Six-Day War.

One City Forever
By MENACHEM BEGIN
"Jerusalem is the heart of our
people, its history, its culture, its
dreams, its prayers and so it
will be for all generations."
Throughout the ages, Jews
everywhere have accepted
without question the affirmation
"Naaleh et Yerushalayim al rosh
simchatenu" Jerusalem will be
the center of our rejoicing. It is so
today, too. Recently an-
nouncements have been made to
the effect that Arab sovereignty
should be introduced into eastern
Jerusalem. Proposals have been
made that the Arab inhabitants of
Jerusalem should vote for the self-
governing authority we had sug-
gested as an expression of
autonomy for the Arab in-
habitants of Judea, Samaria and
the Gaza district.
My response to all these
demands and proposals is:
Jerusalem east, west, north,
south, all of it is under one
sovereignty: Israel. Jerusalem is
the heart of our people, its
history, its culture, its dreams, its
prayers, and so it will be tor all
generations to come, so help us
Twice I was asked to postpone
my reply about Jerusalem in order
that I should take time to consider
it, and twice I said that I would
not wait even one minute, that I
would give my answer on the spot,
because of a famous story in our
There was a sage, Rabbi Amnon
of Mainz, the counsellor of a great
prince, who loved him dearly. As
happened in those days, the prince
began to insist that Rabbi Amnon
convert. The sage refused: "How
can I deny the faith of my
forefathers?" The pressure con-
tinued until Rabbi Amnon said one
day, "Your Royal Highness, give
me three days to consider it."
Then he went home and took his
head into his hands and said to
himself, 'O God Almighty, what
did I do? What did I say? Do I need
three days to think it over? Shall I

When the three days had passed
Rabbi Amnon did not present
himself at court. And so they
came for him and he was brought
before the prince by force. There
he asked that his tongue be cut out
for not rejecting immediately the
pressure to convert.
And his limbs were mutilated.
On Kol Nidre night Rabbi Am-
non asked to be brought to the
synagogue and there he expired.
But before he died, he wrote the
U-Netanah Tokef, one of the most
sacred prayers of our tradition,
which reminds us that on Yom
Kippur it is decided who will live
and who will die, who will disap-
pear and who will be born, who
will rise up and who will be
Every Yom Kippur we repeat
that prayer of Rabbi Amnon. And

remembering Rabbi Amnon, I
could not delay my reply.
The Heart of Our People
Jerusalem is the heart of our
people and because it is I could
not ask for a day or two or three
to consider giving it up. It would
have been a denial of our eternal
faith and so I responded on the
Without hesitation and without
qualification, the world should
know that on this issue on
Jerusalem its entirety, its in-
divisibility, its Israel sovereignty
it is Jerusalem, D.C.
Washington is the D.C, District
of Columbia. Jerusalem is D.C.
Yes, it is sacred to all three
monotheistic religions. We have
always recognized that.
Therefore, we respect the holy
shrines of all religions.
President Carter has said that
Jerusalem should remain undivid-
ed and that there should be free
access to the holy shrines of all
religions. I agree with that for-
mulation. This is the situation that
prevails in Jerusalem today and
will prevail forever, guaranteed
by law and by the will of the
It was not always so. The world
was silent for 19 years of Jorda-
nian occupation of Jerusalem.
During that time all our
synagogues were destroyed; the
cemetery on the Mount of Olives,
one of our holiest shrines, where
our greatest sages are buried, was
For 19 years, we could not go to
the Temple Mount or to the Kotel
Hamaravi to pray, although we
had gone there for centuries
under all regimes.
The Hadassah Hospital and the
Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus
were almost completely
destroyed. The Jewish quarter,
which had existed for centuries,
was destroyed, stone upon stone.
That was the situation under
What is it under Israeli jurisdic-
tion? The synagogues are rebuilt,
the University and hospital are
reconstructed, the cemetery
reconsecrated. Everyone is free to

go to his holy shrine to pray
Christians, Moslems and Jews
and so it will be forever.
Any proposal which may either
directly or indirectly bring about
the redivision or repartition of
Jerusalem will be immediately re-
jected by our people. For we stand
by the unit of Jerusalem forever
There is no connection between
Jerusalem and the subject of
autonomy. The autonomy pro-
posal was our idea not an Egyp-
tian or an American proposal. We
initiated it. It is a Jewish idea, a
Zionist idea. We want to live with
our Arab neighbors in peace and
in human dignity. And so we pro-
posed that they enjoy full
autonomy. They will elect their
own Administrative Council,
which will care for them and deal
with their daily affairs without
any interference by Israel. We
reserve only the right to maintain
our security. This is the essence of
our plan; but now we hear pro-
posals that there should be a
legislative assembly and an ex-
ecutive and a judiciary.
I can only respond that we pro-
mised autonomy; we never agreed
to have a Palestinian state in all
but name. Such a state would be a
mortal danger to us. The majority
of our people would be held
hostage: every city and town in
Israel would be threatened by
guns and tanks and missiles. Not
only would people in the hundreds
and thousands be killed, peace
itself would be murdered by per-
In a generation in which we lost
a million and a half of our children
and the world did nothing to come
to the rescue of the persecuted
and the condemned, we cannot
believe in illusions or play with
word. They are so beautiful,
words like "self-determination"
yet how misused it was in the
We remember how the Germans
in Czechoslovakia demanded
remember how many articles
were written, how many speeches
were made. Why shouldn't they
have self-determination? They
want to join the Third Reich. Why
shouldn't they be allowed to? Why
should they have to live in
Czechoslovakia? So they know
what happened to us and to all
The analogy is historical and
true. So we cannot let such
phrases be misused. To others
such issues may be a matter of
policy. To us it is a question of life
and whose life? The survivors,
the orphans, the bereaved ones,
the remnants of our people, a
third of which was destroyed in

children to have a smile on their
faces when they have a reason to
think of them.
My husband and I went through
those horrible four years in ghet-
tos and concentration camps and
came out with the understanding
that "hate" can create only bad
things. Only love can create "faith
and hope." This is what we taught
our children and they learned it
I am sorry that Rabbi Jacobs
father brought up the issue that
Hitler killed 160 of his relatives
that would have been present at
his Bar Mitzvah. I believe in
answering all the children's ques-
tions, but at the same time I don't
believe that it has to be fed as a
To me this is teaching just
useless hate. To remember, we
must be honest in our own feel-
ings. I know, even though we
were not here then, that many
Jews came to this country and
didn't have the 160 relatives from
Europe for their son's Bar Mitz-
vah. This is why so many local
organizations were created to
replace the relatives.
Rabbi Jacobs very strongly
blamed the United States for this
period, in some ways he may be
right, but why not blame the
Jewish population, too. I have to
say that the four years taught us
not to judge because we don't
know how each of us would act in
a similar situation.
I just want to share this with
you and say I still believe, that in
spite of everything, there is a
future for the Jews and the human

Yes, we are for full autonomy.
We want the Arabs in Judea,
Samaria and the Gaza district to
enjoy full autonomy; but there
cannot be legislative assembly. It
is a contradiction of the Camp
David Agreement to permit a
legislature, a quasi-government, a
judiciary. The result will be a
Palestinian state in everything
but in name.
We did not promise "self-
determination" at Camp David.
We refused to do so. what we said
was: full autonomy for them,
security for Israel.
Under international law, you
cannot sign an agreement and
then delete words of great impor-
tance from it, words which we
weighed for 13 days and nights
together with the President at
Camp David. We signed an agree-
ment and we are living up to it.
And in these days of cheshbon
hanefesh, spiritual stocktaking,
all of us citizens of Israel, Jews
all over the world, our Christian
friends, free men, just men, good
men all of us should say to each
other: As long as we live, we will
do our utmost to preserve and
help that little state, Eretz Israel,
that Palestine which was promis-
ed to us by all the free nations
after the First World War in a
statement that began with these
words: "Whereas recognition has
thereby been given to the
historical connection of the Jewish
people with Palestine ..."
The Jewish people with
Palestine this is our country,
this is our land. We are not in-
vaders; we have returned, we
have come back to the Land of our
forefathers. We never wanted to
evict one Arab. The Book of
Books tells us: "Love the
stranger; remember you were
strangers in Egypt." This is our
teaching, this is what we believe
We never wanted to wrong
anybody. We don't want to now.
Let us instead rededicate
ourselves to the great and noble
goal of human understanding and
