Lessons From The Holocaust
Dr. David Wyman Yom Hashoah Guest

Over 40 years ago, a major
tragedy occurred in Germany
when Adolph Hitler assumed
power and transformed Ger-
many's government into a Nazi
regime. One by one, Hitler
systematically sought to an-
nihilate individuals, whom he con-
sidered were hindering the coun-
try's progress. In one of the
world's greatest genocides, Hitler
and his government murdered
over six million Jews and one
million non-Jews to teach the
world a lesson. Anyone who has
read about the Holocaust knows
that it was a tragic mistake and in
fact, we did learn a lesson. What
people do not always recall,
however, is that the American
government knew what was hap-
pening in Europe. Dr. David
Wyman, author of "Abandonment
of the Jews" did extensive
research on this topic and he will
discuss his findings at the upcom-
ing Yom Hashoah program. This
years program will be held
Wednesday, April 29 at 8 p.m. at
Congregation &ol Ami.
Wyman takes an interesting
look at what transpired during
Hitler's era and critically
describes the indifference by
Jews, Christians, and the
American government. Dr.
David Wyman
Wyman, who served as the chair-
man of Judaic Studies Program at
the University of Massachusetts is
the grandson of two Protestant
ministers. Quotes Wyman, "I
grew up with the church and its
teachings. I struggled with the
subject of writing about the
Holocaust. It wasn't just a Jewish
tragedy. The perpetrators were
Christians, Christianity and
western civilization failed. Chris-
tians still don't pay enough atten-
tion to the Holocaust. It's their
problem, too, but I suspect that
most of the people who read my
book will be Jews."
Dr. Wyman received numerous
honors in response to "The Aban-
donment of the Jews," including
the Chancellor's Medal from the
University of Massachusetts in
November of 1986, and the Doctor
of Humane Letters from Hebrew
Union College. The book was also
included as one of the New York
Times Book Review's Eleven
"Best Books of 1985." A.J. Sher-
man, who reviews books for the
New York Times describes
Wyman's book as a major con-
tribution to our understanding of
where the American people were
during Hitler's regime.
In addition to Wyman's
remarks, local Holocaust sur-
vivors will be participating in a
candle lighting ceremony to com-
memorate the lives that were lost.
"We hope that the Jewish com-
munity will respect both the sur-
vivors and those Jews and non-
Jews who were brutally murdered
by attending this year's pro-
gram," commented Yom Hashoah
Chairman Dr. Ronald Pross.

Islamic Bomb' Poses Serious Threat
To Israel's Existence, Sen. Glenn Says
Hold The Date-
Generation to Generation
Pakistan's interest in ob-
taining nuclear weapons
poses a threat to Israel's ex-
istence, and Congress
should consider halting
military aid, Sen. John
Glenn (D., Ohio) said
Glenn, testifying before the
Senate Foreign Affairs Subcom-
mittee on Near East and South
Asian Affairs, said there is strong
evidence indicating that Pakistan
is "manufacturing and testing
components for nuclear
weaponry." He proposed
eliminating military aid to
Pakistan unless it can be certified
that it has no nuclear materials.
GLENN, noting that former
Pakistan Zulfikar Ali Bhutto said
he was building an "Islamic
bomb," said the weapon is "the
ultimate threat to Israel's ex-

By Amy Scherzer
Two ladies who deserve a special mention this week are our
Mayor Sandy Warshaw Freedman and city councilwoman Linda
Saul, congratulations to you both on your superb campaigns and
well-run elections. We are looking forward to hearing about and
seeing your good work and good governing. and to really mak-
ing Tampa "America's Next Great City." We salute you both!
We're proud to tell you about the athletic abilities of some of
our gang. Jessie Older, daughter of Dr. Jay and Lois Older,
received the Junior Varsity Girls Basketball Most Improved
Player Award at Tampa Prep's Winter Sports Award Dinner last
Karl Greenbaum, son of Sharon and Elliot Greenbaum,
qualified for the Florida Regional Junior Olympics as a represen-
tative of the Tampa Bay Swimming Association. A ninth-grader
at Wilson Junior High, Karl swam the 100 yd. breastroke in one
minute, 10 seconds. This summer he will swim the 50-meter
longcourse. You'll find Karl practicing every night after school at
the University of Tampa.
Sam Linsky, son of Nancy and David Linaky, won the unrank-
ed Junior Grand Prix Tennis Tournament for Boys 10-and-under
played at the Ramada Hotel North Tennis Club in February, and
Erin Vekauf, daughter of Nancy and Byron Verkauf won the
Girls 10-and-under division.
Gary Sonnenfeld, son of Michele and Stephen Sonnenfeld,
plays on the Pythons soccer team in the Town and Country Soccer
League, and his team was undefeated for the season, coming in
first place in the eight-and-under division. Gary is in the first
grade at Morgan Woods Elementary. Way to go, kids!
Speaking of Sonnenfeld's fourth-grader Alan Sonnenfeld,
son of Michele and Stephen, won a Superior rating at the
Hillsborough County Science Fair for his project: "How Hot is a
Watt?" The Morgan Woods Elementary student also won first
place in a Math Exposition last fall, and his soccer team, the Scor-
pions, won first place in the age 10-and-under division of the
Town and Country Soccer League. Keep up the good work!
Two more outstanding students to tell you about are Hal and
Eileen Herzog, children of Herb and Shelley Herzog.
Hal, a fifth grader at Claywell Elementary, won the superior
award at the Hillsborough County regional science fair held
March 5 at the USF Sun Dome. His project involved physical
science and matter, and was called "Copper or Nickel I'm in a
Pickle." It was all about the electroplating process. This was the
second consecutive year that Hal reached the county level and
earned a first place.
Eileen, a sophomore at Gaither High School, a member of the
school's concert chorus, participated in the district-wide music
competitions at Dundein High School and helped the school earn
the number one spot and score the highest rating. She's now on
her way to an invitational at Gatlinburg, Tenn. to compete fur-
ther, stopping off to perform at Six Flags over Georgia on her
way home. No wonder the Herzog's are beaming these days!
"Little Mary Sunshine" was this year's Spring musical at
Berkeley Prep, and we heard it was really terrific. Students from
grades 9-12 make up the cast, plus the Berkeley Singers and the
Drama Workshop. Some of the students appearing in the play
were Julie Turkel, Rinne Groff, Jeff Stein, David Leibowitz,
Saaie Sokol, Michael Shimberg, Tammy Long, Jonathon
Gilbert, aad Laurie and Debbie Klein. What a great cast!

Children Make Cents
At First Grade Store
Children from The Hillel School
of Tampa have just completed stu-
dying a unit on money. To help
reinforce the money concepts
learned, Mrs. Lancz's first grade
class has opened a store. Children
have been bringing empty food
containers, cans, egg cartons, etc.
to school each day for the past
couple of weeks. The children
have assigned prices to each item.
Each day one group of children
will have an opportunity to use
real money and shop in the store,
pay for the groceries and count
their change. This experience will
reinforce adding and subtracting,
teach the children to count money
and make change.
A field trip to Whaley's Super-
market on Howard Avenue will
enable Mrs. Lancz's first graders
to have a hands-on experience of
grocery shopping. Each child will
have 50 cents to spend on one or
multiple items at Whaley's.
"From experiences such as this
one," said Mrs. Lancz, "children
look at learning as fun arH "ot as
a duty."
Mrs. Lancz is a graduate of
Denver University and has been a
first grade teacher at The Hillel
School of Tampa for five years.
"I like teaching first grade
because the children absorb
everything like sponges and when
a child learns a concept it's like a
light bulb being turned on," she

authority on Israel and world
Jewry and Rabbi Daniel Allen,
director of the National United
Jewish Appeal Leadership
Development program, are the

A Jewish Community Thrives In Tokyo
Jane Ornauer is managing
editor of the ADL Bulletin.
It could be a synagogue in
Anytown, U.S.A. The building is
starkly modern, brick, three
stories high. The facade's only
decor are the traditional six-
pointed Star of David and a
Inside, the sanctuary is also
"American Familiar." The pews
are of highly polished blond wood
with hinged reading desks to hold
prayer books. The ark curtains
are of gold-fringed blue velvet,
embellished with menorahs and
other symbols.
Yet, this synagogue is 10,000
miles from New York, in the
center of Tokyo, Japan. Called the
Jewish Community of Japan
(JCJ), it lies in the fashionable
Hiroo district and serves as the
heart and home of Jewish
religious and cultural activities for
the vast Tokyo metropolitan area.
Jews of many nationalities and
denominational preference (Or-
thodox, Conservative and
Reform) reside in the environs of
Japan's capital city and form the
JCJ's widely diverse congrega-
tion. At a recent Friday evening
Sabbath service, I saw a group of
Israeli men seated together,
several American families, a few
women whose husbands are in the
U.S. military, a student who came
from Staten Island, NY, and a
young man from Strasbourg,
France. One couple, who were ob-
viously American tourists, had
come to say Kaddxsh.
The synagogue may look like
one in America but its procedures
are different. A chart outside the
sanctuary plainly spells out that
pew sections are divided. Some
are for men only, some for women
and there are others where men
and women may sit together.
The service itself reflects this
blend. The rabbi faces away from
the congregation, in the Orthodox
manner. The ritual includes facets
from each of the main branches of
Judaism. Most prayers are in
Hebrew although some are said in
As the congregation's spiritual
leader, Rabbi Michael Schudrich
explains, "We are a traditional
synagogue but unaffiliated with
any of the major arms of Judaism.
We try to make our members com-
fortable sometimes we don't
The congregation, which
numbers about 170 families living
in Japan, is about 50 percent
American, 25 percent Israeli and
the remainder from various other
parts of the world. There are eight
to ten Japanese converts among
the current membership.
The synagogue dates back about
40 years to the immediate post-
World War II era. The founders
were primarily Russian Jews who
had fled their homeland after the
1917 revolution and made their
way to China. Following the
Chinese Communist takeover in
1947, they settled in Japan and
formed the nucleus for a
synagogue, along with personnel
from the American occupation
The present building, which was
erected in 1980, serves as the
focal point for every stage of
Jewish life cycle events. From
birth to death, observant Jews
turn to the JCJ for service and
assistance. Babies are welcomed
into the faith. There is a mikveh
on the premises. Weddings are
held and celebrated a recent
one united a vacationing Israeli
couple, who decided not to wait to
return home before tying the
The JCJ religious school is at-
tended by some 65 children, pro-
viding education through Bar and
Bat Mitzvah. The rabbi, who came
to the Tokyo pulpit from New
York several years ago with his
wife, told me he has hopes of for-
ming a Hebrew high school as his
students mature.
The rabbi fills a variety of
capacities as well as spiritual
leader. He is principal of the
religious school, directs a youth
group and teaches adult education
He also supervises conversions
to Judaism, which occur with sur-
prising frequency, considering the
location. While we talked, his
telephone rang and a Japanese
woman inquired about the conver-
sion procedure. When questioned
about her interest ("I expected to
hear that she planned to marry a
Jew," Rabbi Schudrich said later),
she told him she had visited Israel
and was studying Hebrew.
As I toured the three floors of
the immaculate building, where
hallway conversations in Hebrew
are not uncommon, I realized that
this is the center for Tokyo's
Jewish social life as well as
religious activity. On the second
floor, an outdoor swimming pool
is surrounded by circular tables
topped with colorful umbrellas,
where members, family and
friends can enjoy a respite from
Tokyo's oppressive summer heat
and humidity.
Indoors on the same floor there
is a 1,000-volume library offering
a wide variety of reading
materials, ranging from the latest
on the New York Times Best
Seller List to classics in fiction
and non-fiction. The library is pro-
bably one of the few places in the
Tokyo area where popular
English-language reading is
The walls of the library are lined
with photographs of past
presidents ofthe congregation,
again a similarity to American
temple life.
Another unique aspect of the
JCJ is that members go there to
buy imported kosher meat and
other foods including Passover
goods. Tokyo offers few if any
other resources for such
necessities. These foods also ap-
pear on the menus at the monthly
community dinners and the Oneg
Shabbat meals which follow some
of the Friday evening services.
What about anti-Semitism in
Japan, I asked Rabbi Schudrich.
Actually, he said, most Japanese
don't know much about Jews or

"If pressed to name people they
know as Jewish," he said, "the
answers would likely be Einstein,
Freud and Barbra Streisand."
Some Japanese, he added, do
think of Jews as prominent in the
medical profession and the media,
which they consider to be positive
He told of problems in the
Japanese educational system with
respect to Jews, however. The on-
ly Shakespearean play most
Japanese students are likely to
read is "The Merchant of
Venice," leaving youngsters with
the stereotyped view of Shylock
the Jew. In addition, he said such
notorious works as the "Protocols
of the Elders of Zion," and other
anti-Semitic literature are
published in Japan.
Rabbi Schudrich, who is study-
ing the Japanese language several
times a week, takes such problems
to the Anti-Defamation League
Committee of the Tokyo B'nai
B'rith Lodge, which interacts
with Japanese government of-
ficials and educators.
After talking with Rabbi
Schudrich, touring the synagogue
building and chatting with con-
gregants both before and after
services, it no longer seemed sur-
prising to me that there is a thriv-
ing Jewish community in the heart
of Tokyo one that seems destin-
ed to keep the faith in the years
ahead for those far from home.

Deschenes Report Spotlights Nazi Safe Haven

Number 7
TORONTO (JTA) Evidence
of Canadian participation in ef-
forts to provide safe haven for
certain Nazis right after World
War II is contained in an un-
published section of the
Deschenes Commission's report
on Nazi war criminals in Canada,
presented to the House of Com-
mons last week.
According to MP Robert
Kaplan, a former Solicitor
General, "it's essential that it be
brought out so that Canadians will

Rodel is said to have found
evidence, though not conclusive,
that British and American in-

Eastern Europe into Canada,

Restore Lost Jewish World
only way to avenge the deaths of

"to restore their lost Jewish world
and perpetuate their values and

Agudath Israel of America said

annual dinner of Agudath Israel
of California, Rabbi Moahe Sherer
urged the Orthodox Jewish com-

A Passover Thought
Director, Hillel Jewish
Student Center at USF
Rabbi Reconttruetionist
Community Chavurah
In nearly every Jewish
newspaper published at this time
of year, a Passover message can
be found, usually speaking of the
meaning of freedom, the impor-
tance of telling the Passover story
to our children, and the com-
parison to some present dav
societies. While these messages
are certainly vital to our heritage
there is yet another message that
we may extract from this holiday
a message that combines elements'
of the High Holy Days with those
of rassover.
Our rabbis, in seeking deeper
meaning for Passover, looked
upon the leavening process and
compared it to the Yet Roj,
tne evil inclination in people. To
elaborate, the rabbis felt that each
of us have this Yetzer Rah within
us. While this entity by itself is
not something separate or truly
"evil," it may give rise to wrong-
doing. This process is equated to
the rising of the dough for that
which is considered unleavened to
become leavened. Passover may
then be viewed as a time for each
of us to become introspective, and
examine our behavior and com-
mitment, and act accordingly.
While the practice of our
customs and ceremonies is both a
beautiful and a proud part of our
tradition, coupling it with the
above could make the seder an
even more unique part of our
Jewish experience, a sort of
'booster shot' mid-way toward the
approaching High Holy Days.
Thus, we add to the sacredness of

Communities Help Rebuild School
Students are back in class at a
junior high school in Mexico City,
thanks to the combined efforts of
the U.S. and Mexican Jewish
The school, Secundaria No. 3
"Heroes de Chapultepec," was
reduced to rubble on September
19, 1985, when a series of earth-
quakes hit Mexico City.
"This new school building will
long symbolize the solidarity that
exists between the Mexican and
American Jewish communities,"
said Heinz Eppler, President of
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC).
The JDC responded to the Mex-
ican disaster with a "JDC Open
Mailbox," a mechanism for the
American Jewish community to
contribute toward non-sectarian
disaster relief. According to
Sylvia Hassenfeld, Chairman of
the Open Mailbox Campaign, it
has been used to respond to
disasters in El Salvador, Ethiopia,
and several other countries.
Contributions to the "Open
Mailbox" totaled $600,000, accor-
ding to Ralph I. Goldman, Ex-
ecutive Vice President. "We con-
tributed $600,000 to a general
reconstruction fund to help
rebuild the school," Mr. Goldman
said. "The other $100,000 was
presented to the Catholic Church
for housing reconstruction."
"The Jews of Mexico were
eager to work with JDC in helping
the country recover from the ear-
thquakes," said Mr. Eppler. "The
Central Jewish Committee
donated more than $2 million to
the reconstruction fund."
Leaders of the Mexican govern-
ment and the Jewish community
participated in dedication
ceremonies for the new school on
Feb. 6. Many of those present
were alumni of the school, which
also boasts two Mexican
presidents among its graduates.
The new school, which is built to
withstand future earthquakes,
serves 700 young students during
the day and 500 adults in the

Reminder: On the evening
before Passover, Sunday, April
12, a formal search of the home is
made for Chometz (all food and
drink made from wheat, barley,
rye, oats, spelt, or their
derivatives) while holding a lit
candle. It is customary to
distribute 10 small, individually
wrapped pieces of Chometz
throughout the house before the
search. (See your Haggadah for
the blessing).
The house is then searched and
all the chometz that is found is
securely covered and placed in a
conspicuous place. The next morn-
ing (Monday) the Chometz that
was found is burned no later than
11:21 p.m.
On Monday, April 13, chometz
may be eaten until 10:22 a.m.
After that time only foods which
are Kosher for Passover may be
eaten throughout the eight days of
the Holiday.
Since it is prohibited to possess
Chometz on Passover, we must
sell all Chometz and Chometz
utensils to a non-Jew. It should all
be stored away in a closet and
locked or taped shut. Since there
are many intricacies in the sale, a
Rabbi should be entrusted with its
Anyone interested in selling
their Chometz may contact Rabbi
Y. Dubrowski at 962-2375 no later
than Tuesday, April 7.
It is customary for all first born
sons or fathers of first born sons
under 13 years to fast on the day
before Passover, in gratitude to
the Almighty for sparing them
when He slew the first born of
Egypt. This fast day is broken by
a festive meal in celebration of the
conclusion of the study of a book
of Talmud known as a Siyum.
A Siyum will be held G-d willing,
Monday morning at 8 a.m. at Bais

pledge, however minimal, gave
the teens the chance to become
personally involved in the
development of the Tampa com-

this way by learning the facts
and rearranging their priorities to

Anti-Semitic Feelings
Feared on the Rise in Japan
Officials of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith have expressed con-
cern to Japanese Am-
bassador Nobuo Matsunago
about the rise of anti-
Semitic literature in Japan.
They told Matsunago at a
meeting here that the ADL
wanted "to work with the
Japanese by making available
materials to reduce prejudice and
stereotyping," according to Jess
Hordes, ADL's associate
Washington director. Hordes was
accompanied to the meeting at the
Japanese Embassy by Burton
Levinson, ADL national chair-
man, and Abraham Foxman, ADL
associate national director. Mat-
sunago was "Open and ap-
preciative of the proposal and said
he would convey it to the govern-
ment," Hordes said.
THE MEETING was prompted
by press reports in this country of
a popular Japanese author,
Masami Uno, who claims that his
country's recent economic woes
are due to a conspiracy by "inter-
national Jewish capital" and that
Jewish-dominated interests have
begun a "targeted bashing of

the New York Times, Uno has
charged that "America is a Jewish
nation" and that Jews form a
"behind-the-scenes nation" con-
trolling major U.S. corporations,
including IBM, General Motors,
Exxon, Standard Oil, Ford,
Chrysler and AT and T.
Other books and articles that
have recently appeared in
bookstores include tiUes like "The
Jewish Plan for Conquest of the
World," "How to Read the Hid-
den Meaning of Jewish Protocol,"
and "Mysterious Judea."
Articles assert that Jews were
behind the Lockheed Aircraft
bribery case that led to the
criminal conviction of a former
Japanese Prime Minister, Kakuei
Tanaka, and the Watergate scan-
dal. A book, "The Secret of
Jewish Power to Control the
World," was written in 1984 and
is still in circulation. Its author,
Eisaburo Saito, is a member of
Parliament's upper house.
UNO, in his book, "If You
Understand Judea, You Can
Understand the World," claims
that Jews caused the Great
Depression of the 1930's and are
plotting a second one for the
1990's. In his second book, "If you
Understand Judea, You Can
Understand Japan," Uno asserts
that the number of Jews killed in
World War II was exaggerated.
The two books have sold a total
of 650,000 copies. Uno describes
himself as a Christian fundamen-
talist and head of an Osaka-based
organization called the Middle
East Problems Research Center,
according to the Times.
Matsunago told the ADL that
Japan guarantees freedom of
speech and that anti-Semitic
views are not representative of
the people or the government.
The Japanese Embassy refused to
comment about the meeting.
IN A LETTER to the New
York Times, Itari Umezu, director
of the Japan Information Center,
said that "anti-Semitism has no
roots in Japanese history." Dur-
ing World War II, when Japan
was an ally of Nazi Germany,
some Japanese aided Jews in
escaping from Europe. There also
have been disclosures of a prewar
Japanese project, the "Fugu
Plan," to invite German Jews to
settle in Manchuria.
But reports of current anti-
Semitism in Japan prompted a let-
ter by Rep. Charles Schumer (D,
N.Y.) and Sen. Arlen Specter (R,
Pa.) in which they told Prime
Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone that
"the raw anti-Semitism in your
country cannot go unchallenged."
Red Army
Chorus Demo
The performance here last month
of the Red Army Chorus and
Dance Ensemble was met by a
demonstration by 25 or 30 Jewish
students who claimed that Soviet
soldiers do more than sing.
"In Moscow, you would not
believe what they do," said the
pamphlet distributed by the
students to about 1,500 people, ac-
cording to demonstration
organizer Carnie Rose. She was
referring to repression of Soviet
Jews. She told the Jewish Post
here that the demonstration's
"purpose was to show the incon-
sistency in Soviet policy."

ere discussed at what is believed
be the first major Conference
Language Policy in the United
ites, a forum on "English: The
Language? Whose Deci-
an?" last week at the Tamiami
unpus of Florida International
fniversity in Miami.
(SPEAKERS included experts
bilingual education, leaders of
minority communities, and
intergroup-relations specialists.
Conference sponsors were the
American Jewish Committee, the
Center for Educational Develop-
ment, Center for Multilingual and
Multicultural Studies of Florida
International University, Cuban
National Planning Council, Dade

Board, Florida International

New World Center Campus of
Miami-Dade Community College.
Keynote speaker was Dr. Sarah
E. Melendez, associate director of
the American Council on Educa-
tion's Office of Minority Con-
cerns, who said in an inteview:
"We don't need laws to make
English the official language, as it
already is, by tradition and
custom. Furthermore, Hispanics
and other language minority
groups don't need laws to force
them to learn English; rather,
they need opportunities they

Weinberger: I Was Misquoted

)senne, reported last Thursday (Mar. 5) that he had a
igthy telephone conversation with Weinberger who
:ifically denied stating in his deposition that a strong

Earlier, Vice Premier and Foreign Minister Shimon
;res had called Weinberger's reported statement an
ipleasant surprise to Israel.
materials. Every ESL class has a
waiting list, which proves we
don't need to be coerced to learn
Dr. Melendez also disputed "the
prevalent notion that large
numbers of Hispanics never learn
English," pointing to Census
Bureau findings than 94 percent
of Hispanics in the United States
speak English to some extent.
AS FOR the youngsters of
Hispanic origin, Dr. Melendez said
that "there is no danger that
children going to our school
systems will not learn English,"
adding: "The reality is that
without some special efforts they
will soon forget their parents'
language, which is too bad
because the United States needs
many people with multiple
language capabilities."
Irving M. Levine, director of
AJC's National Affairs Depart-
ment and of its Institute for
American Pluralism, discussing
the issues covered by the con-
ference, censured those who
"become emotionally over-
wrought about linguistic diversi-
ty, demand 'English-only,' and
refuse to see the value in people's
maintaining their ethnic linguistic
and cultural interests."
Agreeing that "becoming com-
petent in English is more of a
necessity than ever for new im-
migrants," Levine held that,
nevertheless, "mastering the new
language while also preserving
the old is what the equation should
be for new ethnic Americans."
AS FOR Americans whose
forebears came here a generation
or mroe ago, Levine suggested
that "it might not be a bad idea
for them to learn the language of
their heritage," adding: "But if
they do not care to do that, let
them at least be more tolerant of
those who do not wish to discard
the treasures the spoken and
written words of cultures that
have enriched our own."

Also slated in a major address at
the conference is Dr. Rodolfo J.
Cortina, director of the Center for
Multilingual and Multicultural
Studies at Florida International
University. Indicating a central
issue examined in his address, Dr.
Cortina said that the United
States Constitution, "like the na-
tion, did not confirm any single
ethnic reality but was, rather, in-
vented by multiple ethnic
Moreover, he said, the Constitu-
tion "was meant to be a map of
the future rather than a confirma-
tion of the past" and, he stressed,
"the Constitution contains not
one statement on language policy,
thus demanding that we invent a
language policy for our own
FRAMERS OF the Constitu-
tion, continued Dr. Cortina,
"were not unaware of the strong
feelings provoked by language
and ethnicity, but their Constitu-
tional silence on this issue stems
from the common-law tradition of
not restricting future generations
through needlessly detailed laws
. .. And I believe that a language
policy in the United States has to
be made by the people, and not by
unnecessary laws."
Touching on another aspect of
the debate, Marilyn Braveman,
AJC director of education and one
of the organizers of the con-
ference, maintained that "re-
quirements that English be the of-
ficial language can have
dangerous, far-reaching, and
unanticipated effects."
"Current English-language pro-
positions," she said, "contain
specific provisions for enforce-
ment, raising the specter of costly
and time-consuming litigation.
Opponents say this could en-
danger or have a chilling effect on
911 lines, interpreters in state
courts for witnesses, crime vic-
tims and defendants, health and
mental-health services, and
multilingual police, fire, and
emergency services. They say it
could eliminate public service an-
nouncements in any language
other than English, including
pamphlets explaining how to
enroll a child in public school."
negative approaches, Braveman
said, "we should support and
develop positive approaches such
as the English Proficiency Act
and other programs designed to
help children and adults gain pro-
ficiency in English."
Advocating that "we talk about
an 'English-plus' rather than an
'English-only' approach,"
Braveman concluded: "The use of
additional languages to meet the
needs of language minorities does
not pose a threat to America's
true common heritage and com-
mon bond the quest for freedom
and opportunity."

'60 Minutes' Failed To Tell Story
Chiri-biri-bim chiri-biri-bim
there is a Klezmer musician in our
midst. Mike Eisenstadt, the
dynamic host of "The Sunday
Simcha" is reviving, along with
Orson Skorr, this style of Jewish
music for the enjoyment of the
Tampa Bay community.
Music is not a new venture for
Eisenstadt. His grandparents
were musicians in Russia. His
mother's family of six brothers
and sisters and now, 16 first
cousins, all play musical
Mike remembers tales about
Sunday afternoons during the
Depression when the whole family
gathered at his grandparents
home in Rhode Island to amuse
and enjoy themselves with a Yid-
dishe jam session, playing klezmer
and Yiddish folk songs. Every
simcha in the family has rejoicing
with the home style band.
While growing up in Central
Falls, Rhode Island, there was
never a question that Mike would
play an instrument, his mother
sings and plays several in-
struments. He wanted to play the
drums, but Uncle Dave had an ex-
tra saxophone; he wanted to play
the trumpet, but Uncle Bernie
gave him a clarinet. Along with
the clarinet came the Kammen
book of Yiddish music and the No.
29 song which Mike uses as the
theme of his radio show.
And that is what you can hear
when he and Orson Skorr do "A
Bissele Yiddishkeit," their hour
long program of Jewish and Yid-
dish music for local audiences.

for WMNF, the listener sponsored

on Sunday April 5, at the JCC.
Children of all ages are invited to
take advantage of this exciting op-
portunity to bake their very own
Matzah. In addition to mastering
the art of Matzah baking, the
children will be able to follow the
kernels of wheat from the field, to
the mills, and finally to a real Mat-
zah bakery through a fascinating
A Matzah Bakery bakes Hand-
made Shmura (watched) Matzah
which is made from wheat that is
carefully watched protected
against any contact with water
from the moment of harvest as
water would cause leavening, and
thus disqualify the wheat for use
on Passover.
These Matzahs are round in
form, kneaded and shaped by I
hand, similar to the Matzahs bak-
ed by the Jewish People on their
way out of Egypt. They are baked
under strict supervision to avoid
any possibility of leavening during
the baking process. Shmurah Mat-
zah should be used on each of the
two Seder nights for the three
Matzahs of the Seder plate.
To enhance the observance and
beauty of your Seder table, tasty
handmade Shmurah Matzah will

Invest Now, Pay Tax Later
Health Information
March's page on the calendar
fills most of lives with thoughts of
spring! To say the least, it is a
very festive time. Serious-minded
investors, however, have to crowd
another matter into their busy
schedules: a little item called tax
return preparation. Oh how we
fret that the tax collector will take
an unseemly amount of our hard-
earned bucks.
Actually, for prudent minded
souls tax planning is a non-stop,
year 'round event, but this time of
year puts special focus on its im-
portance. If the tax consequenses
of investment decisions have not
been previously considered, the
April 15th tax deadline can put
fear into the hearts of jaded
speculator and conservative in-
vestor alike.
We would like to take advan-
tage of this moment not to give
last minute advice which is
always dangerous but to review
some of the tax-advantaged in-
vestment alternatives that are

Some suggestions for tax-freedom

respectfully submitted for your
High perhaps highest on
the priority list are familiar items
called municipal bonds. These
debt securities are issued by state
and local governments to finance
one project or another. The in-
terest paid on such bonds, happily,
is not taxable by Uncle Sam.
If one happens to joyously find
himself in a high tax bracket, such
tax-exempt bonds have to be a
priority consideration. Even if
your bracket is not so high a com-
parison between the tax-free
status of a "municipal" versus the
taxable income from other in-
vestments might produce some
mouth-watering, tax saving
Municipal bonds are also
available in "packages," such as
provided in mutual funds and uni-
ty trusts. The diversification and
professional selection of such
packages can add a considerable
element of safety to the invest-
ment and maybe a few other in-
vestment benefits.

not insensitive to their clients' tax

annuity (a variation of that
100-year-old thrift instrument.)
The virtues of such TDA's are
many. First, the principal accrued
interest are safe, a statement that
can't be made about most in-
vestments. It is free from market
fluctuations. Second, it's liquid. In
fact, it has guaranteed liquidity.
That means you can get your
money back with minimal or no
delay, no questions asked.
Finally, they help the investor
save on taxes which is why we
mentioned them in the first place.
Specifically, so long as the money
remains in the annuity, the in-
terest on principal and the in-
terest on the interest (compoun-
ding!) is free from all three tax col-
lectors (federal, state and local.)
No tax is paid, in fact, until you
withdraw more than your original
investment or begin receiving
regular income payments. Not
bad! And you can buy little TDA's
or big ones. They're available in
all shapes and sizes. Insurance
brokers and stock brokers vie for
this business. It's healthy
Of course, you can also save on
taxes by not investing (or saving)
in anything. That way you don't
generate any taxable income.
That's a little like biting off your
nose, etc., but high taxes can
make investors do strange things
like becoming investors.
We like our suggestions better
because they can generate some
tax-protected income to better
help you celebrate this glorious
time of year even with taxes!

Carter's New Dreams of Glory
Says Assad, Hussein Prepared To Enter Into Peace Talks
Former President Jimmy
Carter arrived in Israel
Thursday (March 26) saying
he was convinced that the
leaders of Syria and Jordan
would join direct peace talks
with Israel held within the
framework of an interna-
tional peace conference.
Meeting with Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
shortly after reaching Jerusalem
by the Allenby Bridge from Jor-
dan, Carter said that President
Hafez Assad of Syria understood
that an international conference
was the next stage toward direct
HE SAID that King Hussein of
Jordan wanted to advance the
peace process and held "flexible
views," but was unable to move
forward in the absence of an inter-
national forum. According to
Carter, Assad regards Jordan as
"a leading force in the peace pro-
cess." Carter said that in his own
view, Syria, too, has an important
role in the process.
Carter's visit to Israel, his first
since 1983, is the final leg of a tour
that took him to Algeria, Egypt,
Syria and Jordan. The former
President stressed repeatedly
here and in the Arab capitals that
his visit was private and the views
he expressed were his own. He
made clear he is not representing
the U.S.
He made several statements in
the course of his journey on the
need to include the Palestine
Liberation Organization in an in-
ternational conference.
Israel coincided with the eighth
anniversary of the signing of the
Israel-Egyptian peace treaty on
March 26, 1979 at a White House
ceremony. The signatories were
then Israeli Premier Menachem
Begin and the late President An-
war Sadat of Egypt. Carter
engineered the treaty.
Carter asked for a meeting with
Begin, who has been living in
seclusion at his suburban
Jerusalem home since he resigned
from office in August 1983. Ac-
cording to Begin's spokesman.
Yechiel Kadishai, the 73-year-old
former Premier said "that he
can't see him, that's all. He didn't
give any reason." Begin and
Carter last met during Carter's
1983 visit.
Carter told reporters Thursday
that one of the lessons of Camp
David, at which Egypt, Israel and
the U.S. talked was that one
should not stick to any single
specific formula in pursuing peace
and that it is time to advance to a
new stage. He said that would
seem to be an international
HE SAID his visit to Israel was
to raise questions and float ideas
for Israeli leaders, as a private
citizen. He added that he had
never succeeded in convincing
Israelis "or anyone else" to do

what they did not want to do.
Asked why the peace process
had not advanced after Camp
David, Carter said "Perhaps there
is more I could have done, but I
don't think that in the last six
years (the tenure of the Reagan
Administration) it has been as
high a priority as it has been with
me, when it was almost an

Effective Feb. 20, the Tampa Jewish Federation will
have to cut back on the number of Jewish Floridians that
are distributed to the community.
Annually the Tampa Jewish Federation has spent in
excess of $18,000 to provide the Floridian to the identified
Jewish households in Hillsborough County. Our Campaign
in 1986 fell short of its goal resulting in the need to cu*
expenses. Federation realizes that the newspaper is an
important vehicle to disseminate Jewish community news,

Celebrates Purim
On March 16, Superman, Rain-
bow Bear, clowns, bunnies,
policemen, punk rockers, and of
course Queen Esther and King
Ahashverosh visited the Hillel
School for its annual Purim
The fun-filled day began with a
costume parade, and the students
had the opportunity to enjoy each
other's creativity. The judges for
the Costume Contest viewed each
costume, and one winner was
selected from each grade. Even
the teachers got into the act,
entertaining their students as
singing and dancing raisins! After
lunch, Hillel students, their
parents, and younger brothers
and sisters were treated to a fun-
filled Purim carnival, courtesy of
Hillel's Student Government. For
10 cents, you could have your for-
tune told, shave cream off a
balloon, "feed" Haman, toss a
basketball or a bean bag, squirt
the candle, throw wet sponges at
your friends, or blow flour off a
dish to reveal a hidden candy!
The Student Government also
sponsored a bake sale as part of
the carnival. According to Hillel
Student Government President
Robin Pegler, the carnival
sucessfully raised over $100 for
Student Government activities.
As the carnival festivities drew to
an end, the winners of Hillel's
Purim costume contest were an-
nounced. They are:

ed to the joy of the holiday.

years before arriving at the Pro-
mised Land. To this day, as the
first segment of the program
shows, one can find in that rugged
terrain evidence of the kind of life
those wanderers must have led.
One can also find today modern
factories that make the matzo, the
flat unleavened bread, which
those ancestors, in their rush to
leave Egypt, were obliged to eat
and which we still eat today on
Passover. The second segment of
the program takes viewers to see
how this ancient food is baked
Another segment of the pro-
gram highlights a seder en-
thusiastically conducted in a
modern kibbutz in the desert not
far from where the Israelites are
said to have wandered.
In deference to the spring
season, a time often thought
peculiarly conducive to falling in
love, the longest segment of the
program focuses on ways in which
single Jewish people are being in-
troduced to one another in Jewish
settings in Miami, Baltimore and
Washington, D.C. Part of the seg-
ment features Senator Rudy
Boschwitz of Minnesota, the so-
called "Cupid of Capitol Hill,"
who brings single people together
particularly to celebrate Jewish
holidays which they might other-
wise have to face alone.
The program also celebrates the
joyousness of the season and the
holiday with a couple of musical
selections by a popular band called
Selah, formerly known as the
Diaspora Yeshiva Band.
The host of the series is film and
television actor Stephen Macht,
currently best known to viewers

At Passover, your Seder table is blessed with prayers. Family.
And a lifetime of tradition. And assuredly, one of these traditions
is Manischewitz Kosher Wines.
Our wines have been served at Passover meals for generations
because they're made in accordance with strict Orthodox
Rabbinical requirements. Ones that make them as kosher and as
blessed as your Seder.
From all of us at Manischewitz, a happy, zissen Pesach.
